THE BRIEFCASE OF THE PROPHET

 

                            

                                              

“The same God that put Sodom in the sea for its sins,

The same God that put Capernaum in the sea for its sins,

The same God will put Los Angeles in the sea for its sins,

that city of-

-of corruption.”

II PETER 1:12-15

  12   Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know [them], and be established in the present truth.

  13    Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting [you] in remembrance;

  14    Knowing that shortly I must put off [this] my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me.

  15    Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease to have these things always in remembrance.

CHOOSING.OF.A.BRIDE.title  LA.CA  V-2 N-28  65-0429E

  That's solemn warning.

We don't know what time.

And you don't know what time that this city one day is going to be laying out here

 in the bottom of this ocean.

"O, Capernaum,"

 said Jesus,

"thou who exalted into heaven will be brought down into hell,

 for if the mighty works had been done in Sodom and Gomorrah,

it'd have been standing till this day."

And Sodom and Gomorrah lays at the bottom of the Dead Sea,

 And

 Capernaum's in the bottom of the sea.

Thou city,

claims to be the city of the Angels,

who's exalted yourself into heaven

and sent all the dirty filthy things of fashions

 and things,

till even the foreign countries

come here to pick up our filth and send it away,

with your fine churches and steeples,

and so forth the way you do;

 Remember,

one day

you'll be laying in the bottom of this sea.

2

CHOOSING.OF.A.BRIDE.title  LA.CA  V-2 N-28  65-0429E

You're great honeycomb under you right now.

 The wrath of God is belching right beneath you.

 How much longer He'll hold this sandbar hanging over that,

when that ocean out yonder a mile deep will slide in there plumb back to the Salton Sea.

It'll be worse than the last day of Pompeii.

 Repent,

Los Angeles.

Repent the rest of you and turn to God.

 

3

CHOOSING.OF.A.BRIDE.title  LA.CA  V-2 N-28  65-0429E

The hour of His wrath is upon the earth.

 

4

WORKS.IS.FAITH.EXPRESSED.title  SHREVEPORT.LA  V-7 N-1  65-1126

 The same God that put Sodom in the sea for its sins,

The same God that put Capernaum in the sea for its sins,

The same God will put Los Angeles

in the sea for its sins,

that city of--of corruption.

 

5

TAKING.SIDES.WITH.JESUS.title  JEFF.IN  COD  62-0601

And I believe that all these things

has a time of lingering,

waiting;

 but it's waiting for a time for the Scripture to be fulfilled,

 till everything gets right,

everything in order,

Waiting.

Many times we get patient-

-impatient.

Like a child, we great--get great anticipations and many times jump way ahead,

 and that--that just hinders the work,

until the work gets caught up.

See?

6

ASHAMED.OF.HIM.title  JEFF.IN  V-3 N-9  65-0711

I know that there is a few people in the world holds on to what I say to be the truth. To stand here and say,

"THUS SAITH THE LORD,

I'm going to Arizona, there I'll meet seven Angels in a cluster,"

well, there's a group of men standing there to see it happen.

The other night saying that

 Los Angeles

would fall into the ocean...

But when you have met God,

and the God Who doesn't fail,

the God Who does exactly what He said He would do, He's always done it;

you're not ashamed of it then.

You don't have to walk back and be embarrassed about it;

You can tell the whole world.

 

7

RAPTURE.THE.title  YUMA.AZ  V-5 N-14  65-1204

I predicted Los Angeles will go beneath the ocean.

 And

THUS SAITH THE LORD,

 it will.

She's done;

she's washed;

she's finished.

What hour?

 I don't know when, but it will be sunk.

 

“I believe that all these things

has a time of lingering,

waiting;

 but it's waiting for a time for the Scripture to be fulfilled”

8

FATHER.THE.HOUR.HAS.COME.title  CHICAGO.IL  56-1002A

Get with the Word.

 Stay with the Word.

And if there ever a true vision comes,

it'll come by the Word.

 Amen.

Never thought of that before.

That's a new one.

 Thank the Lord.

Stay with the Word,

brother.

 

9

FATHER.THE.HOUR.HAS.COME.title  CHICAGO.IL  56-1002A

Micaiah was with the Word,

 because the Word had pronounced cursings on that thing.

And how could Micaiah say anything else but stay with the Word?

So by staying with the Word,

God showed him a continuation of the Word.

 Hallelujah.

There you are.

I hope you--sinks into you like it does me.

There it is.

 

 

BREAD   I CORINTHIANS 11:26   WINE                                                                 

 

“God showed him a continuation of the Word.”

[REVELATION 10:1-7   à  à   à   1 CORINTHIANS 11:26]

10

FATHER.THE.HOUR.HAS.COME.title  CHICAGO.IL  56-1002A

God's going to show the continuation of the Word.

Said,

"Sure, go on if you want to.

All right,

 go do what the preachers tell you to do,

but I saw Israel scattered like sheep that had no shepherd."

 

PSALMS 23:1: The LORD [is] my shepherd;         JOHN 10:11  I am the good shepherd:

 

11

ANOINTED.ONES.AT.END.TIME.title  JEFF.IN  V-5 N-3  65-0725M

Micaiah said,

 "Let me ask God."

So he come down the next morning with

THUS SAITH THE LORD.

He checked his vision with the Word.

 

12

PERSEVERANCE.title  S.PINES.NC  62-0608

So Micaiah gave his prophecy,

that he saw Israel scattered like sheep.

 Now, four hundred ministers standing there, all of them well, all them prophets, great men,

ecclesiastical force.

 But Micaiah was persistent.

He had checked his vision with the Word.

He knowed it was right.

Persistent: Steadfast, tireless, unrelenting, unremitting, unshakable

 

13

TRYING.TO.DO.GOD.A.SERVICE.title  JEFF.IN  V-4 N-8  65-0718M

Micaiah examined his vision before four hundred dignified prophets.

 He examined his vision to see if it was right.

He looked back to what the prophet said before him to see what happened.

He looked back,

and he saw that Elijah standing there.

 

“God showed him a continuation of the Word.”

14

TRYING.TO.DO.GOD.A.SERVICE.title  JEFF.IN  V-4 N-8  65-0718M

 Now,

he seen then that

that vision

was just exactly according to the Word of God,

so he pronounced it;

and he was right.

 That's right.

 No matter what the rest of them said, he stayed right with that Word.

 

15

PERSEVERANT.title  DALLAS.TX  V-19 N-9  64-0305

He was contrary.

 They met him and told him,

"Now,

 we'll put you back in the association if you'll just say the same thing you-

-they say."

He said,

"As the Lord lives, I'll only say what He tells me to say."

 And his vision was examined with the Word of God,

and he pronounced his prophecy, no matter what.

 

16

COMMUNION.title  JEFF.IN  V-10 N-1  62-0204

And

We

cannot prophesy now

 of good things to this modern world.

 The only thing that we can prophesy through the Spirit is disaster, troubles, earthquakes, great tidal waves, sun and moon failing, the church in the Laodicean age, Christ outside the door, knocking to get in.

O God.

Just as Micaiah of old,

how could he bless Ahab

when prophecy was against him?

 

 

 

"The Handwriting On The Wall."

 It was a message the Lord gave me

 on a train coming back from California.”

 

·        “Over on the east coast, they're always hollering to me, "Why you going to the west coast." Everybody pulls out to Los Angeles. Maybe that's God's place. That's right. Right here is probably where judgment will strike.”

 

·        “ I've just returned from the old Azusa Street rally in Los Angeles, California, where we had a wonderful outpouring of the Holy Spirit in commemoration to the first time as we know in America, for the Holy Spirit to fall upon the people in this latter days, in the restoration of gifts. It happened at the Azusa Street.”

 

·        “Flying over to Los Angeles recently, I took a paper that the hostess give me in the plane. And I seen that a hundred and eighty-five major crimes was did in the city of Los Angeles each night: a hundred and eighty-five major crimes. And immorals is on the loose. And they claim that perversion, homosexual, has increased sixty percent over the last year. Think of it! And then weigh it with what God said, "As it was in the days of Sodom, so shall it be in the coming of the Son of man."

 

·        “Before this service closes tonight, we may all be in eternity. A hydrogen bomb could strike Los Angeles. And no doubt, "Los Angeles," is wrote on one in a hangar way in the east now, somewhere. You know that.”

 

·        “ Why, I've read in a--in a newspaper here in Los Angeles, here some time ago (I was flying over Los Angeles), and seen that homosexuals was on the increase of forty percent over the year before: Man taking man to room and living with them like wives, perversion. That's exactly what the sin of Sodom was. And that's the thing we got. Even our government's full of it.”

 

·        “The graveyard of preachers, Los Angeles.”

 

·        “I was reading a newspaper here some time ago in Los Angeles. It's increased forty percent in the last year: Sodomite. Why? Women has exposed themself and such, till the natural source of man's been changed: Sodomite.”

 

·        “No wonder we can't have the revivals. No wonder Los Angeles, and the rest of the world, is on its road to hell. No wonder you're ripening for an atomic bomb.”

 

·          “What do you think happens in Los Angeles in one night?”

·        “This is a preacher's graveyard. That's right. Look at Los Angeles, everything and every cult lands right in there, and everybody's got a creed, a doctrine. To get the Word in there, you can't do it. It's so contaminated.”

 

·        And I seen one of those in Los Angeles one time the first one I ever seen, the ladies made up in that way. And I--I thought that... I was going to walk up and tell her I was a missionary, and I'd seen pellagra and leprosy, and--but I'd never seen anything like that. And I was going to ask her if I could not pray for her and--and I... And tell me what kind of disease she had.

 

·        “I believe that Hollywood, and Los Angeles, and them filthy places over there, that God Almighty will sink them. They'll go beneath the bottom of the sea.”

 

·        “He was standing at the meeting, a businessman's meeting in Los Angeles, California, two years ago. And I had just got through speaking of a great, powerful, forceful statement that even the overseer (one of the general overseers of the Assemblies of God) stepped down to the platform from up in the balcony where he was setting, and he said, "I don't believe that Brother Branham meant that."

     I said, "I have to mean it, sir. It's THUS SAITH THE LORD."

 

·        “This may be the end for Los Angeles. This may be the last soul that'll be born into the Kingdom.”

 

“And then prophesying, "Los Angeles will be in the bottom of the sea."

 

·        “But just as I surely was standing there under that Inspiration, put judgment on that west coast, and then followed it right up here with the sinking of Los Angeles; she's gone! That's right. It will happen. When? I don't know.”

 

·        The other night saying that Los Angeles would fall into the ocean... But when you have met God, and the God Who doesn't fail, the God Who does exactly what He said He would do, He's always done it; you're not ashamed of it then. You don't have to walk back and be embarrassed about it; you can tell the whole world.”

 

·        Los Angeles..." See what's happening? She's going right on to the bottom of the sea. When? I don't know when it's going, but it's going. You young people, if I don't see it in my day you watch; she's gone.”

 

·        “Places in Los Angeles and Hollywood sinking so many inches per hour, no way to stop it. Yeah, we're here.”

 

·         Los Angeles is doomed for judgment. I tell you before it happened, that you might know when it does happen. I never spoke that by myself.”

 

·        “Oh, my. I remember just my last message in California where I thought I'd never go back again, when I predicted Los Angeles will go beneath the ocean. And THUS SAITH THE LORD, it will. She's done; she's washed; she's finished. What hour? I don't know when, but it will be sunk.”

 

17

MODERN.EVENTS.MADE.CLEAR.BY.PROPHECY.title  SBD.CA  V-7 N-6  65-06

Oh, my,

people, where are we at?

Nations are breaking, Israel's awak'ning,

The signs that the prophets foretold;

The Gentile days numbered,

With horrors encumbered;

(Watch her slide into the sea.)

 

Brother, sister, it's a scary time.

 Watch the things that's prophesied;

Watch the things happen.

Watch all the prophecy being fulfilled;

then we see what all this is about. It's not a bunch, a streak of fanaticism.

 It's God confirming His Words exactly, exactly.

Prophecy is vindicating the day that we're living in.

 

18

COMMUNION.title  JEFF.IN  V-10 N-1  62-0204

O God,

we only see the bitterness of judgment ahead.

 

19

ANOINTED.ONES.AT.END.TIME.title  JEFF.IN  V-5 N-3  65-0725M

Micaiah said,

"You'll find out one of these days when California's beneath the sea out yonder,"

and a lot of these same things.

 

He compared his prophecy, his vision, with the written Word,

and it was right with the Word.”

 

20

ABSOLUTE.THE.title  JEFF.IN  V-3 N-18  62-1230M

How did Micaiah know he was right?

He waited;

 he had a vision.

They had a vision too, but the vision didn't compare with the Word.

And today the same thing...

21

QA.HEBREWS.PART.3.title  JEFF.IN  COD  57-1006

Now, someday I'm going to leave here.

I'm wondering,

"What will be my end?"

 

22

ANGEL.OF.THE.LORD.title  TOLEDO.OH  51-0718

He said,

"Brother Branham, do you realize what..."

 said,

"You'll never live to see the day that the picture comes into it's value,

 because the-

-the testator is always dead before the testament is seen."

 And he said,

 "It'll be in the days after you're gone."

 

23

QA.HEBREWS.PART.3.title  JEFF.IN  COD  57-1006

Why don't they catch these prophecies and things?

 You know,

they can't do it now,

 but one day I'm going to leave the world,

 and

when I leave,

 then they'll recognize It.

 Some of you young people will realize that after I'm gone.

 See?

But God wouldn't permit it to be done now...

 

“God showed him a continuation of the Word.”

 

24

CHRIST.REVEALED.IN.HIS.OWN.WORD.title  JEFF.IN  V-4 N-10  65-0822M

It’ll come to pass.

 See?

 You'll notice what them revealed, that great thunder a-coming forth out of the-

-out of the skies.

Now... Of course, the whole bunch of you,

 you know that I know what that--what that means. You see? And...

But let's just wait till the time comes

25

QA.ON.THE.SEALS.title  JEFF.IN  63-0324M

If God wants you to know anything,

He will send it to you

(See?);

so just be real, real solid now.

Hold still.

Something has happened.

 

“So by staying with the Word,

God showed him a continuation of the Word.

 Hallelujah.

There you are.

I hope you--sinks into you like it does me.

There it is.”

 

26

GOD.KEEPS.HIS.WORD.title  JEFF.IN  57-0120E

Seers are seeing it come,

Who rises up above

the average person.

We see it because it's written in the Word:

 

 

“And his vision was examined with the Word of God,

and he

pronounced his prophecy,

no matter what.”

27

ANOINTED.ONES.AT.END.TIME.title  JEFF.IN  V-5 N-3  65-0725M

Micaiah said,

 "If you return at all, the Lord hasn't spoke to me."

He knowed he had

THUS SAITH THE LORD,

and his vision was exactly with

THUS SAITH THE LORD,

 not for some other season,

but for that season. Amen. Hallelujah.

The season...

 

28

ANOINTED.ONES.AT.END.TIME.title  JEFF.IN  V-5 N-3  65-0725M

That's the reason that Micaiah could say,

"All right,

You just wait and see."

 

“God showed him a continuation of the Word.”

I CORINTHIANS 11:26
 
29

GOD.WHO.IS.RICH.IN.MERCY.title  PHOENIX.AZ  V-19 N-2  65-0119

To be an eagle of God,

you've got to follow the Word day by day.

You've got to continue to feed upon the Word.

 

30
ANOINTED.ONES.AT.END.TIME.title  JEFF.IN  V-5 N-3  65-0725M

Micaiah said,

"You'll find out one of these days when

California's beneath the sea out yonder,"

 

Amen.
