The End-Time message is that message that proclaims the Revelation of God's Word as brought about by God's messenger to the Laodecian Church Age, he whom God sent to take a Bride to Jesus Christ from among the Gentiles in these last days, according to Malachi 4:5,6 and Revelation 10:7.
Just as Noah's Message caused his family to build an ark for deliverance, and just as Moses' Message took the Israelites out of Egypt for an exodus, we have an End-Time Message today that bids us to come into Christ in order to be saved and be raptured before the final closing of this world's history.
The End-Time Message was brought to us by a man sent from God who's name is William Marrion Branham. It unveils the revelation and the truth about God's perfect way of salvation today.
Unknown to the world, God has once again visited our generation with supernatural signs that ought to catch the attention of a sincere believer in Christ Jesus. Just before this world reaches its bitter end, God has sent us an urgent MESSAGE through a messenger to this age (William Marrion Branham) to restore us back to the true faith that was once delivered to the saints.
William Marrion Branham was one of the most influential Bible ministers of our time, considered by many to be the initiator of healing and charismatic revival that began in 1947.
From 1947 until the time of his passing in 1965, the powerful ministry of William Branham was well known and considered unparalleled in the history of gospel meetings. The impact of the supernatural ministry of this one man was felt not only in North America, but also around the world.
Untold thousands of verified cases of all manner of healing were manifested in the U.S.A., Canada, Africa, and all around the world through the prayers of William Branham. The blind received their sight, cancer patients were made well, the maimed, the crippled, and the halt were made fully whole. No disease stood in the way as God proved to millions, that He is still God today, the same yesterday, and forever (Hebrews 13:8) in the ministry of His end-time messenger to our age.
But most important of all, William Branham brought us an End-Time message which restored all the loose-ends of the bible which, even if all the bible schools in the world were combined, would never be able to unveil to us. These teachings include the Mystery of the God-Head, the Truth on Water Baptism, the Original Sin, Predestination, the Revelation of the Seven Seals, The New Birth, the Mark of the Beast, Mystery Babylon, and more... These truths were restored to the church today in order to prepare the Bride of Jesus Christ in every nation to get ready for the Rapture, which is the second coming of the Lord.
William Branham came to know the Lord and was filled with the Holy Spirit in 1931. From that time, the bible became the focus of his life and Jesus Christ the centre of his very existence! He was ordained to the ministry at the age of 23 years, in the Missionary Baptist Church in December of 1932.
In May of 1946, he set himself aside to seek God for the meaning of his strange life. As he prayed alone late one night, an angel of light appeared, saying "Do not fear. I am sent from the presence of Almighty God to tell you that your peculiar birth and misunderstood life has been to indicate that you are to take a gift of Divine healing to the peoples of the world. If you will be sincere when you pray and can get the people to believe you, nothing shall stand before your prayer, not even cancer. You will go into many parts of the earth and will pray for kings and rulers and potentates.
You will preach to multitudes the world over and thousands will come to you for counsel".
For half an hour, this angel explained to Brother Branham about the past and told him of his future. He explained why the ministers couldn't recognize a gift of God in William's life, yet the devil could. It was the same in Jesus' day: the religious leaders said Jesus had a devil, yet the devils at Gadara recognized Him (Mark 3:22; John 7:20).
Millions of people bear record that the words of the angel were fulfilled exactly (as in Acts 27:21-25). As the sign in his hand was manifested, which when seen would raise the people's faith to be healed, his ministry grew nationwide, then worldwide. Then it came to where the Spirit of Christ would reveal to him the very thoughts of men's hearts, reveal their needs; reveal unconfessed sins that were not cleansed by the Blood of Jesus Christ; reveal things about their lives that brother Branham himself couldn't possibly know. Not mindreading or psychology, but rather he would see a vision of it - the things actually enacted before his open eyes (Joel 2:28).
And when he spoke under the anointing, out of hundreds of thousands of times all over the world, the words spoken to total strangers never failed to be exactly the truth. And the prophesies of healing, of future events, small to great, thousands and thousands and thousands of times - not once was one even partly wrong! It was literal, "THUS SAITH THE LORD!".
Over the next ten years brother Branham circled the globe seven times, holding some of the largest meetings in history. Some 100,000 people heard him in Durban, South Africa. Seven truckloads of crutches, wheelchairs, canes, etc.. were hauled away after the healing services.
Many individuals of public influence, including Congressman Upshaw of the U.S.A. and King George VI of England, were healed as a result of his prayers.
It was as they left brother Branham that they formed this mysterious cloud which Life Magazine had featured in their May 17, 1963 issue, and Science Magazine in their April 19, 1963 issue.
The original glossy prints reveal the full face of the Lord Jesus Christ as the picture is viewed from the right side angle "like unto the Son of Man, His head and His hairs were white like wool, as white as snow" (Revelation 1:13).
Over a month later, on February 28, 1963, while out hunting, he noticed a sand burr in his trouser. As he reached to pull it off, a tremendous blast rocked the mountainside. Looking up, he saw seven angels in the form of a pyramid sweeping towards him, and for a time he seemed to be caught up in their midst. These seven angels represent the Seven Messengers to the Seven Church Ages as written in Revelation chapters 2 and 3.
Then a voice cried out, "Go back east", and brother Branham knew it was time for the opening of the mysteries of the Seven Seals in the book of Revelation (Daniel 12:4,8-9; Revelation 5,6, & 8) which the angels have entrusted to him. The angels returned into the sky and formed a cloud some 50 miles long and 30 miles wide, which was visible for hundreds of miles around.
Many pictures were taken of this peculiar cloud, some appearing in Life Magazine (May 17, 1963 issue); some in Science Magazine (April 19, 1963 issue), along with a scientific report of how it was scientifically impossible for such a cloud to exist. The highest clouds form at about 10 miles, but this phenomenal cloud was 26 miles up, at which altitude water vapour does not exist.
Brother Branham returned to Jeffersonville, Indiana wherein for seven days, as he waited on God, the voice of God spoke out the Pillar of Fire, revealing the exact Truth of the Mysteries sealed up in Revelations 5 through 8; which revelation was contrary to what everyone (including brother Branham) had previously supposed, yet was perfectly in line with the rest of God's word.
As brother Branham preached seven consecutive nights on these SEALS (March 17-24, 1963) his sermons were tape-recorded: Thus the scripture is fulfilled in our day saying, "But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to His servants the prophets" (Revelation 10:7).
God's pattern of dealing with His people has always included the sending of prophets. The prophet Amos informs us that God does "nothing" without a prophetic forerunner, and even a surface study of scriptural history will uncover this to be exactly as stated. Seldom was there a prophet who spoke the words of GOD who was not greeted with skepticism, rejection and abuse!
CONSIDER these Scriptures on the spirit of Elijah: MALACHI 4:5-6 "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse".
Malachi 4:5 and 6 is two-fold, fulfilled in part in the ministry of John, the Baptist. He preceded the first coming of Jesus Christ, called the "great" day of the Lord, truning the hearts of the fathers of the "law" to the children of the New Testament era of "grace".
As stated in Jamieson, Fausset & Brown Commentary on the Whole Bible, "...John the Baptist was an Elijah in spirit (Luke 1:16,17) but not the literal Elijah (John 1:21)". This implies that John, knowing he was referred to by Malachi 4:5, knew by inspiration that he did not exhaustively fulfil all that is included in this prophecy: that there is a further fulfillment. There is a prophet that will fulfill the second part of this scripture, forerun the second coming of Christ and "turn the hearts of the children to their fathers..." Literally, this means that there will be a ministry that will turn the hearts of a backslidden generation back to the Word of God and the faith of our "early church" fathers before the "dreadful day of the Lord", the second coming of Christ in judgment.
Again, Matthew 17:10-12 is two-fold. Firstly, "Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come?" "...But I say unto you, That Elias is come already and they knew him not..." speaking of John the Baptist. Secondly, "And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things." Speaking of a future forerunner to precede Christ's second coming.
The ministry of William Branham is the fulfillment of the coming of the spirit of Elijah that was to precede the second coming of Christ which is to "restore" the hearts of the children back to the teachings of the Apostolic Fathers.
The ministry of William Branham involved three distinct stages that he referred to as "pulls".
The ministry of Jesus Christ followed exactly the same pattern.
- First Pull: Multitudes flocked to hear His gracious words and to receive His miraculous healing touch.
- Second Pull: Revealed the secrets of the hearts. (John 4:17-18)
- Third Pull: His "message", the Word of God which came in strength and contrary to the religious order of the day, caused the multitudes to leave him. "From that time, many of His disciples went back, and walked no more with him". (John 6:66).
God has once again visited this last generation with a mighty prophet. A humble man, who desired neither fame nor wealth, who never failed to give every bit of the glory to the Lord Jesus Christ.
