THE BRIEFCASE OF THE PROPHET

 

                              

FIRST PULL                 SECOND PULL               THIRD PULL

"There would be three stages of this ministry.”

“That One Who was with Moses

in the wilderness.”

“That One Who come to Paul                                                                   “The same One that was in the

on the road to Damascus.”                                                                  picture in the "Life" magazine.”

"Whose name is Branham?"

I said, "Mine."

 

He said, "Someday, this picture will be sold on the ten cent stores (you know).

But said, "Not while you're living, because God wouldn't permit that."

But said, "After you're gone, the church will realize the day

that they passed through."

 

 

JOHN 1:1-11

1   In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

2    The same was in the beginning with God.

3    All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

4    In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

5    And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

6    There was a man sent from God, whose name [was] John.

7    The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all [men] through him might believe.

8    He was not that Light, but [was sent] to bear witness of that Light.

9    [That] was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

10    He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

11    He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

TESTIMONY.title  W.P.BEACH.FL  53-1129E

And I said,

 "Well,

If Jesus Christ thought enough of me

to come down and have

His picture

taken by me for the first time in all the world,

you think I'm a little enough to commercialize this picture?"

And he said,

 "No, I wouldn't think that."

I said,

"I turn it over to the Douglas Studios."

 

 

"After you're gone,

the church will realize the day that they passed through."

“That One Who was with Moses in the wilderness.”

MY.ANGEL.SHALL.GO.BEFORE.THEE.title  TALLAHASSEE.FL  53-0213

And that Pillar of Fire,

or

the Angel,

was the Angel was the covenant.

I believe

all ministers would agree with that,

 that that was the Angel of the covenant.

If it was the Angel of the covenant,

then it was the Lord Jesus;

 

“That One Who come to Paul on the road to Damascus.”

GOD.HAS.A.PROVIDED.LAMB.title  TOPEKA.KS  V-20 N-5  64-0620E

He said,

"I come from God; I go to God."

He was the Logos that was with Moses in the wilderness,

the Pillar of Fire.

He died on Calvary, raised again.

 And when Saul was on his road down to Damascus,

that same Pillar of Fire struck him down; he said,

"Who are You, Lord?"

He said,

"I'm Jesus."

He came from God; He went to God.

 

“The same One that was in the picture in the "Life" magazine.”

THIS.DAY.THIS.SCRIPTURE.title  JEFF.IN  V-3 N-8  65-0219

The "Life" magazine packed an article of it,

"Mystic circle of light

 goes up in the air above Tucson and Phoenix"

5

TESTIMONY.title  SHREVEPORT.LA  V-17 N-5  63-1128M

Like the March 17th, the-

-the March issue of the "Life" magazine,

you seen that circle of Light in the skies,

thirty miles high, twenty-seven miles across.

 Why,

 moisture's only about nine miles high,

and they can't even make up what it was.

 

 6

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

  It was revealed to me,

"I was going to Arizona, and there I'd meet seven Angels.

 And they'd tell me then what-

-a Message that I was to preach."

And that was the Seven Seals.

It happened.

 

7

WHAT.IS.THE.ATTRACTION?.title  JEFF.IN  V-8 N-8  65-0725E

That's exactly where it happened.

 I never know it till the other day.

Everything, that--that shall never die,

 it's constantly unrolling itself.

From the very thing

happening,

To the picture being Jesus standing looking at us,

and now exactly on Sunset Mountain.

 

“To see Jesus Himself there in the skies,

 looking down.”

8

SOULS.IN.PRISON.NOW_  JEFF.IN  V-2 N-22  SUNDAY_  63-1110M

What did He say down there at the river about thirty-three years ago?

"As John was sent forth…

(See?)

 

9

QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS_  JEFF.IN  COD  SUNDAY_  64-0830E

Revelations 10 is the seventh angel's Message.

 

10

FOURTH.SEAL.THE_  JEFF.IN  THURSDAY_  63-0321

The seventh angel's message will be a person...

[THUS SAITH THE LORD, the message and the messenger are one and the same]

[WMB: SPIRITUAL FOOD IN DUE SEASON]

 

11

RECOGNIZING.YOUR.DAY.title  JEFF.IN  V-5 N-1  64-0726M

But

 They didn't recognize their hour.

They didn't recognize the day.

They didn't recognize the sign.

 They didn't recognize the message.

They didn't recognize the messenger,

 but put him from their midst and laughed at him.

Jesus said,

 "As it was in the days of Noah..."

 

"After you're gone,

the church will realize the day that they passed through."

 

12

IDENTIFICATION.title  PHOENIX.AZ  63-0123

And it was very unpopular.

His group was very unpopular

'cause he was considered a fanatic.

 

13

GOD.IN.SIMPLICITY.title  JEFF.IN  63-0317M

Think.

Everything will move just as common as it can be.

A fanatic message will go by.

 

14

EVENTS.MADE.CLEAR.BY.PROPHECY.title  JEFF.IN  V-12 N-3  65-0801E

They should've knowed this event.

 

Ought they not to knowed that Isaiah said in Isaiah 9:6, "Unto us a Child is born"?

Ought not they to know also that the prophet Isaiah said, "A virgin shall conceive"?

They ought to have knowed these things.

 But,

you see,

the thing of it was,

they were applying it somewhere way ahead.

 

“They preach the second coming of Christ,

 but deny the advent of the prophet-messenger.”

 

15

CHRIST.IS.THE.MYSTERY.title  JEFF.IN  V-3 N-7  63-0728

That great Angel of the Covenant,

 that One Who was with Moses in the wilderness,

 that One Who come to Paul on the road to Damascus,

that same One permitted His picture to be taken with us;

the same One that was in the picture in the "Life" magazine the other day

 

16

AS.THE.EAGLE.STIRRETH.UP.HER.NEST.title  CHATAUQUA.OH  59-0815

Now,

 the hour has come.

The Pillar of Fire has appeared to us again.

You've got the pictures of It.

 It's in Washington D. C. under a copyright.

That if I die, if I never seen you all again,

 my testimony is the truth.

 The scientists know it.

 The Church knows it.

I've been around the world;

 it knows it.

 She's ready for judgment.

There's only one way that judgment can come;

 That’s when mercy spurned.

 

17

BELIEVE.YE.THAT.I.AM.ABLE.TO.DO.THIS.title  CLEVELAND.OH  50-0820

And there It is.

 I believe It's the same Angel of the covenant.

 

18

AS.THE.EAGLE.STIRRETH.UP.HER.NEST.title  CHATAUQUA.OH  59-0815

 There's one thing left,

that's a hydrogen bomb.

And it's headed this a way.

Remember,

I tell you that in the Name of the Lord.

 

"After you're gone,

the church will realize the day that they passed through."

19

RISING.OF.THE.SUN.title  JEFF.IN  V-3 N-12  65-0418M

What is the opening of those Seals then?

Revealing Christ.

And the very seven Angels which represented the Seven churches was all completed, and we couldn't even see It.

They did-

-they took the picture,

not us.

And there He is standing there, supreme Judge,

showing that

He is Alpha and Omega,

 the Beginning and the End.

 What identification.

 

20

IS.YOUR.LIFE.WORTHY.title  JEFF.IN  V-5 N-5  63-0630E

It was right before them,

But they turned it down.

 

21

INVISIBLE.UNION.OF.THE.BRIDE.title  SHP.LA  V-2 N-15  65-1125

Oh, no wonder,

 no wonder the damnation of God is heaped up.

God put it right before your eyes,

and you shut your eyes and fail to look at it.

 

"After you're gone,

the church will realize the day that they passed through."

 

22

WE.WOULD.SEE.JESUS.title  GRASS.VALLEY.CA  JJ 1-36  62-0704

Who is the Angel of the Covenant?

Christ.

23

MY.ANGEL.SHALL.GO.BEFORE.THEE.title  TALLAHASSEE.FL  53-0213

  And that Pillar of Fire,

 or the Angel,

was the Angel was the covenant.

I believe all ministers would agree with that, that that was the Angel of the covenant.

If it was the Angel of the covenant,

then it was the

Lord Jesus;

 

“There’s never been a supernatural Being

 that's been scientifically proven."

But, said,

 "This is scientifically proven.

The Light struck the lens.”

24

PERSEVERANCE.title  JEFF.IN  V-10 N-3  62-0218

And the Gentiles has had two thousand years,

 just like the Jews did to learn of God,

And

now they're getting

the same sign and rejecting It just like the Jews did.

The Jews rejected their Messiah,

'cause they had it all denominated up.

 

25

SIGN.OF.HIS.COMING.title  CLEVELAND.TN  62-0407

They rejected it.

The people re...

What did they call Him?

Beelzebub, a fortuneteller, a devil.

What happened?

They waded in their own blood.

26

SIGN.OF.HIS.COMING.title  CLEVELAND.TN  62-0407

What did Jesus say?

He said,

"You hypocrites"

 (with all these priestly robes on, and doctor's degree behind you, all these great big Pope Johns, and everything else, all these titles, and things),

"walk down the street and desire the high places,"

(the best places to go to),

"devour widows' homes,

and make for--for--for pretense a long prayer, and learn how to say it."

He said,

"You'll receive more damnation."

Said,

"You can look at the sky.

 You know more about

-you know about science than you do the Word of God."

 

27

WHY.AGAINST.ORGANIZED.RELIGION.title  JEFF.IN  V-12 N-1  62-1111E

Nicodemus' organization understanding meant nothing to God.

Now,

 no matter if he was a big shot,

as we call it in the organization, a master in Israel,

all of his learning and understanding didn't mean that

[Brother Branham snaps his finger--Ed.]

when he stood before Christ,

Only a rebuke to him.

 

28

WHY.AGAINST.ORGANIZED.RELIGION.title  JEFF.IN  V-12 N-1  62-1111E

Neither did Korah's great understanding mean anything,

 or Adam's,

 each denying God's vindicated Message.

 

 See, each one of them, the reason that they got in trouble,

Nicodemus, Korah, Nimrod, and so forth,

is because they didn't recognize God's messenger with the vindicated Word of that day.

 

 

29

GOD'S.PROVIDED.PLACE.OF.WORSHIP.title  LA.CA  V-18 N-2  65-0425

Can't you see the Son of man,

 the Son of man in the form of prophetic Message,

 returning back again in His church in prophecy,

revealing Jesus Christ

the same yesterday, today, and forever?

It's never been done through the age till this time.

See?

There's the proof of it.

 

30

RECOGNIZING.YOUR.DAY.title  JEFF.IN  V-5 N-1  64-0726M

It's vindicated both naturally, spiritually, materially.

 

31

SEED.NOT.HEIR.WITH.SHUCK.title  JEFF.IN  V-6 N-4  65-0218

It's passed.

The Spirit of God passed through her.

It's true.

 

"After you're gone,

the church will realize the day that they passed through."

 

32

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

Look,

why didn't the world realize that picture there?

Why didn't they catch that right quick? Why don't they catch these other things? 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.

 

33

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

(You see?)

 for it to...?... Now...

And it'll be more in season.

 

34

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

But we've got one of the most dreadful times

to go through that ever laid before human beings.

 

35

QA.HEBREWS.PART.2.title  JEFF.IN  COD  57-1002

The way the tree leans, that's the way it falls.

 

36

GO.AWAKE.JESUS.title  SHREVEPORT.LA  V-17 N-9  63-1130E

We've tried to introduce the Word.

Christ tried to bring It back

by showing Himself,

the resurrection,

for two thousand years He's still the same.

They turned their back upon It,

walked away;

They’re unbelievers.

Make-believers still hang on to find a fault with It,

 just as much as they can, on and on.

 But what is it?

 The same thing repeating again.

37

QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS.title  JEFF.IN  COD  64-0830M

  The Gospel wasn't made plain to them back there,

like it's made plain to you today.

See?

You see it so plain.

 

                       

“It's our Lord up there”  “To see Jesus Himself there in the skies”

 “Only Christ, it could be”

 

It's just so plain you can't miss it.

See?

 And then,

if you fully reject it,

there's only one thing do,

suffer for it.

 

38

AS.THE.EAGLE.STIRRETH.UP.HER.NEST.title  CHATAUQUA.OH  59-0815

My testimony

is the truth.

 The scientists know it.

 The Church knows it.

I've been around the world;

 it knows it.

 She's ready for judgment.

 

39

VOICE.OF.THE.SIGN.title  DENHAM.SP.LA  64-0321E

It's got to be rejected,

And

then judgment strikes after that.

 

40

BALM.IN.GILEAD.title  LONG.BEACH.CA  61-0218

Tell me when, where, whereabouts did we ever,

ever read in a book or hear or even know of ministry like we have today.

Now,

what's going to follow it?

Judgment,

to reject it.

 

“We've tried to introduce the Word.

Christ tried to bring It back by showing Himself.”

 

41

WHY.title  BLOOMINGTON.IL  61-0413

God has shook all kinds of spiritual gifts before them,

 and they still set like they were just staring.

They don't want it.

 

He sent an Oral Roberts, a Tommy Hicks, spoke in tongues and interpretation of

tongues, and give messages, and prophets, and everything else that He promised in

the Bible, every blessing He shook it before the church;

 And

 constantly,

they wade on unbelief.

 

42

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

"You'll find out one of these days

when California's beneath the sea out yonder,"

 

"After you're gone,

the church will realize the day that they passed through."

 

 

AMEN.
