One might need to study our lesson on the Seventh Seal before embarking upon this simple yet mind
bogging study. We will be constantly referring to the Seven Seals in this lesson.
Seventh Seal Ministry
The 7th seal is the 7th angel message. Like the 6 seal is the 6 angel's message, and the 5 seal
is the 5 angel's message and so on to the first seal. We realize each church age messenger
came in their earthly age with their message; however, they were not permit to preach their
message in it fullness while in their earthly time. But in the revelation of the 7th
seals or the sounding again of all 7 thunders at one time (REV 10), each angel in their
Theophany revealed their message in it fullness through the seven church age messenger
(REV 10:7). We are now in the 7th seal age, or under the 7th angel's message, and because
of this, all the previous 6 seals are known in their fullness. Example, during the 6th
angel's return theophany
ministry which was revealed to Brother Branham (John Wesley's message), it was more than the
second work of grace, the sanctification message that John Wesley had preach in his earthly
ministry, but it was a full 3 fold revelation concerning sanctification. Which is, the mystery
concerning, 1.), 144,000 Jews, 2.), the Foolish Virgin Church, and
3.), the world purging itself before the millennium. Sanctification means, "To set
apart". Which is, NUMBER 1.), 144,000 Jews coming out of Israel and NUMBER 2.),
and the foolish virgins coming out of the church and NUMBER 3.), the new world coming out
of the old world. End Example. By 1965 Brother Branham (as a man) had preach or reveal each of the 7 seals
heavenly messenger's message.
Harvest Time Part 1
The preaching of the 7 seals (7 thunders) was a revealing of what had previous happen and is still continuing.
The 1st seal speaks of the nicolaitine spirit (white horse rider) that was crowned at the
Nicene Council 325AD. This nicolaitine spirit in our age will again crown the antichrist. The
2nd seal (red horse rider) speaks of the historical killing of Christians. This seal event
is now starting to unfold in its fullness. Even though there were 68 million Christians put
to death under the 2 seal there is more than that number to be put to death during the future
tribulation period. The 3rd seal speaks of gross darkness like in the dark ages. This seal
(black horse rider) is still riding. We know the fourth seal evil powers is a mixture
of the first 3 seals powers.
Harvest Time Part 2
Let us look the mixture of the 3 seal powers as mentioned in the last paragraph and how they
are manifested today. It was the (from the Seal Book) political powers (1 seal-white
horse power) of the Kennedy corrupt presidential administration that open the door
for the rise of the civil political enemy of the church. Now the major on the Supreme Court
of the United States of America is under the control of the false church through a political
power. It is religious powers (2 seal-red horse power) of the ecumenical
movement of the World Council of Churches also called the charismatic revival. This will
cause millions of Christian to be put to death as heretic by a so called greater spiritual
people like in the age before. The demon powers (3 seal-black horse power)
is taking Christ out of our society and filling the world with crimes, etc. This third
seal is a raw demon power, not the devil hiding behind politics or religion but walking
right out on the street. In our day, under the 4th horse rider all these powers are working
together. It is almost impossible to discern which horse power we are confronting. We are
living in the harvest time of all of these spirits. That is why the 7 Theophany messages
(7 thunders) is to sound under the 7th seal (in Brother Branham ministry) to combat this
great evil and win the victory for the rapture.
Theophany Ministry Part 1
During the 7th angel earthly life time there was a spiritual unseen ministry transpiring.
The Pillar of Fire (7 spirits of God) appeared with Brother Branham at his birth in 1909.
The seventh seal age and its 7 THEOPHANY UNSEEN MINISTRY began in 1909. It was
later revealed to us in 3 stages called pulls of the 7 angel's messanger's life. The 7
Theophanies appeared in 1963 during the time of, "The Revelation of the Seal Seals" to
revealed what they
had been doing and was yet still going to be doing in the future. The fullness of the ministry of Christ has been
going on since the Word returning to the church (1909). When the Logos (Word)
returned, the 7 Theophanies which are the 7 spirits of God also came to earth. It is the
ministry of Jesus Christ (7 spirits of God) that has causes natural and spiritually events to come to pass over
There is a transforming power on earth a Theophany ministry that has been creating a divine
order for the millennium.
Theophany Ministry Part 2
We believe each 7 angel messenger return in their unseen Theophany ministry to sound their trumpet
(7 demonstrations of God). The SEVENTH SEAL We must remember that this Seventh Seal
is the end of time of all things. It is the end of, the struggling world, the end of struggling
nature, and the end of the trumpets. So the 7 trumpet events must start to take place in the
time of the 7th seal message. In referring to the Trumpets, Brother Branham said, RECOGNIZING
YOUR DAY And He revealed to me them that seven trumpets sounded under the Sixth Seal,
and I've done preached it, supernaturally. See? It's the hand of God, the whole thing. It
pertains to Israel; and we picked it up under the Sixth Seal, you all who have that, how
the persecution of the Jews Brother Branham when he preached the 6 seal, and
when he also referred back to the 6 seal, he show us the purpose of the 7 Trumpets. It was
a purging time getting things ready for the millennium. FEAST OF THE
TRUMPETS Oh, don't you see where we're at? Don't you see why them Trumpets means
nothing to us? They all sounded under our Sixth Seal. The trumpets mean nothing
to the Bride, for she is made ready for the rapture by the power of God. But the trumpets
do mean a lot to the Jews, the foolish church (who will go through the tribulation), and
for this planet. This earth must be prepared for it is going to be our home for a 1000 years
reign with Christ. So it does mean something to us, but not in the spiritual aspect as Brother
Branham stated. Notice in the first line of Theophany Ministry Part 1, we mentioned, that the
Pillar of Fire return to the church at the time of Brother Branham birth. The Pillar of Fire
is the 7 spirits of Christ. It was around Brother Branham birth date that the 1 trumpet begin
to sounded, the start of the seventh spirits trumpet unseen demonstration. The 1 Trumpet
sounded, and the preparation began for World War 1.
Well, the--the trumpet sounded, and the--and the "Buy your Bonds," and so forth, as we all
remember it. We'll go over and have this World War, and we'll settle it. And then they'll
organize. They organized what they called the League of Nations. And then there's going to
be a peace, eternal peace that's all, no more war. In a merely little twenty years, we were
right back in there again, just as hot as ever in another world war. See?
SEVEN CHURCH AGES
When the sixth one sound... We'll get on that maybe the sealing away on Friday night. When
the First World War, why, the--that Sixth Trumpet sounded according--exactly according to
the time God spoke of it, exactly, geographically, following the seal before that.
REVELATION 8:2 (Revelation 8:1 is the opening of the 7th seal)
And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.
THE FIRST SEAL
Let's take now, because we're going to have a long (maybe tomorrow night or the next night)
hit a trumpet now and then, because the trumpet sounds at the same time the Seals. It's just
the same thing,
We are now going to look a 7 trumpet scriptures along with quotes and facts relating to the
effect the 7 Trumpets have had upon the world. These facts are not exactly correct but
you will get the general picture.
And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
REVELATION 8:7 The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood,
and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green
grass was burnt up.
I KNOW MY REDEEMER LIVETH Some time ago, over in... The first world war was going on, they
had great gases that they throwed, such as mustard and chlorine gas. And it was dangerous.
It would poison everything. The leaves would die; the trees would die, and the grass would
die. Everything where they'd gas that mustard gas would burn it up when they'd throw it.
REVELATION 8:8-9 And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with
fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; And the third part
of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships
This scripture speaks of the great navy battle of World War 2. It was the attack on Pearl
Harbor, Hawaii that sank eight battleship and 13 other naval vessels and called America to
war. On June 4, 1942 in the battle of Midway with-in five minutes time US bombers destroyed
3 aircraft carriers (mountains) and sank another aircraft carrier later that day. America
build a fleet of 100 aircraft carrier during World War 11. Also, during World War 2 the
Germans lost 784 U-boat (submarines) while the Allies lost more than 2800 merchant ship to
these submarine. Many mountains were cast into the sea with fire.
REVELATION 8:10-11 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning
as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of
waters; And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became
wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
On August 6, 1945 the first atomic bomb was drop on Hiroshima, Japan killing between 60,000-70,000
people. August 9, 1945 the atomic bomb was drop on Nagasaki, Japan killing around 40.000 people.
The radiation fallout contaminated the soil and water, many more men die. And people are still
dying today due to the fallout.
REVELATION 8:12 And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the
third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened,
and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.
We believe this is relaying to the environment, the pollution of the atmosphere. The skies are
polluted with acid rain, smog, carbon dioxide and so forth. In the Microsoft Encarta Encyclopedia
it states that in 1948 in the steel town of Donora, Pennsylvania, intense local smog killed 19
people. In 1952 in London over 3000 people died in one of the notorious smog events known a
London fogs. In 1962 another 700 Londoners died. In 1984, in Bhopal, India, methyl gas was
released from a factory during a thermal inversion (down flow of air current) causing at least
3300 deaths. Often the sun can not be seen in many city of the world due to the environment,
REVELATION 9:1-11 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth:
and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.
And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great
furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.
And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the
scorpions of the earth have power.
And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green
thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented
five months: and their torment [was] as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.
And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and
death shall flee from them.
And the shapes of the locusts [were] like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads
[were] as it were crowns like gold, and their faces [were] as the faces of men.
And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as [the teeth] of lions.
And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings [was]
as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.
And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power
[was] to hurt men five months.
And they had a king over them, [which is] the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the
Hebrew tongue [is] Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath [his] name Apollyon.
CHRIST REVEALED IN HIS OWN WORD And then when we open up those, the Lord willing, on those Seven
Vials and show those hideous things... Men will be so insane after while, till they'll imagine
they're seeing ants the size of a mountain. They'll be tormenting women, be locusts come upon the
earth with long hair to torment women who cut theirs off, hair like women hanging down, and long
teeth like a lion, stingers in their tail like a scorpion, and so forth, to torment men upon the
earth. But then it'll be too late to do anything about it. You get right now. See? Tormenting...
INVISIBLE UNION OF THE BRIDE Well, if it was insane then, it's insane now. Well, look,
the whole world proves it's insane. Look at the murders and things that's going on now in the world
(See?): insanity. The whole thing is coming to fulfill Revelations; we may get to it this week,
where those hideous things... Them's not natural; that's spiritual things that makes people
scream to the rocks and the mountains and everything else to fall on them.
And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the
golden altar which is before God,
Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the
great river Euphrates.
And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a
year, for to slay the third part of men.
And the number of the army of the horsemen [were] two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the
number of them.
And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire,
and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses [were] as the heads of lions; and out of
their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.
By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone,
which issued out of their mouths.
For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails [were] like unto serpents, and
had heads, and with them they do hurt.
And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of
their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone,
and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:
Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of
FEAST OF THE TRUMPETS Notice, two hundred thousand demons turned loose upon those Jews,
when they burned them, they crucified them; they put bubbles in their veins; they killed them till
they had no more gas to kill them with; and they shot them till they had no more bullets to shoot
with; and they--and they done everything they could do. They cremated their bodies and everything,
and hung them on fences, children and all, innocent people. Because they were Jews, they were done
that way. But God said He give each one of them a robe, undeserving as they was, but His grace to
blind them so that we could see...
FEAST OF THE TRUMPETS Well, what has it done? In the cunningness, as He said, he'd come
in like flatteries. And what has he done? He's bringing the Protestant ecumenical council of the
world churches, the spirit of antichrist, upon both of them, bringing them to the slaughter, just
like they did the other in a hour to call the Bride. How? Loosed in the ecclesiastical church, spirit.
Loosed upon what? Not upon the denominations, upon the Bride.
FEAST OF THE TRUMPETS Notice, the loosing of this ecclesiastical spirit. Now, twenty years
later after that war, we see the loosing of the ecclesiastical spirit, what under? The Seventh Seal,
the Seventh Trumpet to the Jew.
REVELATION 11:15-19 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying,
The kingdoms of this world are become [the kingdoms] of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall
reign for ever and ever.
And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and
Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because
thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.
And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be
judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and
them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.
And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his
testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.
In the 3 pull the finally stage of the 7 seal we shall go to be with Christ forever in His Kingdom.
The prophet of Malachi 4 start the ball a rolling. And his prophecy (that 7th spirit of God)
will not end or stop motions in the unseen world till ALL is finished in the plan of redemption.
Each trumpet denotes war. At the sound of each trumpet a plagues falls. REVELATION CHAPTER FIVE
PART 2 When the first seal was opened up, the first trumpet sounded and the first plague fell.
When the sixth seal opened up, the sixth sounded and the sixth plague fell. Brother Branham
said, that a plague follower every war. In each age down through church history there was a trumpet,
war was declared on the age and then a spiritual plague fell. Under the 7 seal ministry there are 7
wars declared and a plague followed each trumpet. All these 7 wars, 7 plagues are pertaining to the 3
fold purpose of the sixth seal. Notice how they have been calling Israel back to their home land.
If there had been no World War 1, there would have been no World War 2, and there would not have been
a Zionist movement, and a nation of Israel today. The world has endured many birth pains, but she
will soon be delivered. Trumpet are a political disturbance, whereas the seals deals with a religious
disturbance both going on at the same time, the natural church and the spiritual church called to battle.
The trumpets are for the Jews (the naturel church) calling them to their homeland, the calling
is taking place at the same time the 7 thunders, the 7 seals
revealed, the opening of the Word, is taking place for the spiritual Bride of Christ.
Brother Branham said that each one of those things are a days lesson in itself. MESSAGE OF GRACE
So you get the seven seals, the seven plagues, the three woes, the woman setting on a
scarlet-colored beast, and the hundred and forty-four thousand. Oh, there's just so much of it goes
in to tie those before the seventh seal is given, seventh plague falls, seventh trumpet sounds. And
there's so many of those things that all tie that together, and each one of them is a great day's
lesson in itself. To my critics, thanks for reading. Many of you take the quote where Brother
Branham, stated that the trumpet had nothing to do with the Bride and draw your conclusion that
this lesson is not nesscery. However, Brother Branham quotes a least five times after "The Feast
of the Trumpet" that he would be preaching in the future on the Trumpets, Vials, and plagues. We
believe he had already done so as this tract demonstrates. However, I do believe, as he mention,
he intended upon preaching a better understanding upon the revelation of the 7 Trumpets, like-in-to, but not exactly what
you have read here. I hope we have helped you in studying the trumpets. God blessings upon you
as you think about the scriptures.
