William Branham - continued:
And friends of mine, keep still and just keep moving on, for the hour is approaching swiftly (See?), that when something is going to be done. Now, you might see some little odd things happen from me, nothing sinful, I don't mean that, but I mean something odd to what the regular trend, because what I have reached to now in the ministry, I'm dropping back here, watching that spot and waiting for the time to use it. But it's going to be used. And everyone knows that for as certain as the first was identified, so has the second been identified; and if you'll think real closely, you who are spiritual (as the Bible said, "Here's to him who has wisdom.") the third is properly identified. See? We know where it is. So the third pull is here. It is so sacred that I mustn't not say much about it, as He told me in the beginning. Said, "This, say nothing of it." You remember that years ago? It speaks for Itself. See? But to... I've tried to explain the others, and I made a mistake. This will be the thing that, to my opinion (I don't say the Lord tells me this.)--this will be the thing that will start the rapturing faith for the going away. See, see?
Now, and that... I must lay quiet for just a little while. Now, remember (and who's listening to this tape) you might see such a change in my ministry right away, dropping back... Not going up, dropping back... We're right at the age now, and it be--can't go any further. We have to wait here just a minute until this happens over here to catch up, then the time comes. But it's thoroughly identified. There's coming a time upon--in this nation, to where this nation is going to exercise all the power that the beast had before (which was pagan Rome, when it become papal Rome. See?) that this nation will do that. Revelations 13 plainly explains it. The lamb came up out of the earth. The other beast came up out of water, thickness and multitudes of people. This lamb came up where there was no people. A lamb represents religion--the Lamb of God. And remember, it spoke like a lamb; it was a lamb, and then after while it received power and spoke like a dragon, and exercised all the power the--the dragon--power the dragon had before him; and the dragon is Rome always. So don't you see, Roman denomination, a marked Protestant denomination, an image unto the beast, making a power that'll force all Protestants like a union. You'll have to be into this council of churches, or you won't be able to have fellowship or to--to... Well, it's--it's practically that way now. You can't go to a church and preach, 'less you have a fellowship card or some identification.
And now, on persons like ourselves, we're going to be cut out of all that altogether. That's exactly, because they won't be able to do it. It's tightening; and then when that time comes, and the press comes to a place to where you're pressed out, then watch (what I am fixing to tell you in a few minutes) watch the third pull then. It'll be absolutely to the total lost, but it--it will be for the Bride and the church. Now, we're closer than it seems to be. I don't know when, but it's real, real, close. I may be building a platform for somebody else to step on. I may be taken before that time. I don't know. And that time may be this coming week that the Holy Spirit will come with--and bring Christ Jesus. He may come this next week. He may come yet tonight. I don't know when He will come. He doesn't tell us that. .................
There's no more doubt in my mind. I know what the third pull is, and I know what it does. Now, be reverent; just keep quiet. The hour will soon arrive, where God is going to do some great things for us. Now, let us bow our heads for a word of prayer.
Look Away To Jesus Jeffersonville IN 12-29-63 Evening
And we all know that the identification, we know what the third pull is, we all--we all understand that. Now, you've got--you'll have the tape. You see? And it's... Now, I think it'll just lay dormant for a little while, until the great hour of persecution comes on. That's when...?... It'll speak. It'll be manifested. Just like the five straight signs without failure, perfectly. And now, I think, just wait (See?); just see what does.
Shalom Sierra Vista AZ 01-12-64
How many was here when I first come to Phoenix, sixteen years ago? Let's see your hands. Just look at there, practically a third of the people. How many of you remember that in praying for the sick, I'd hold out my hand, the people will lay their hands on--on me; and then whatever spoke was what they had. How many remembers that? And how many of you remember that I told you that the Angel of the Lord in that Pillar of Fire, that--that met me up there, and told me if I'd be sincere, it would come to pass that I'd know the very secret of the heart. How many remembers that, said it would be that way? Now, how many remembers that He promised that it would continue on? And not long ago for a vision, He promised about that pull of that line, said, "You can't teach Pentecostal babies supernatural things."
And when I made the third pull, He said, "Now, don't tell nobody about this. You been trying to explain that other. Don't tell nobody about this. This is the great and final pull." How many remembers that being predicted? See, He never fails. Those things happened, one, two, three, just like they were. Now, in Phoenix, that was during the time that Mrs. Waldroff here had died in the prayer line with cancer in her heart and was healed. She usually comes to the meetings. She's probably here now. And then... Mrs. Hattie Waldroff... Then we find out that her doctor had the testimony of it, give the--the--the photographs, or not the (What you call it? X-rays.) x-rays of it, of where the--the woman was--had the cancer. And she's living today. And that's sixteen years ago. Now, I'm quite sure that mister... Yes, that's Mrs. Waldroff right there now. That's right. That's seventeen years this March. There's a lady that was dead and come to life again with cancer in her heart, because it was THUS SAITH THE LORD. Now, notice them times... I went to California, and I believe that Brother John Sharritt was with me then. I was thinking today, thinking on it, coming up here. I'm pretty sure he was. And wife and I......................
God still remains true to His Word. "Both heavens and earth will pass away, but My Word shall not pass away." God, Who can create squirrels, Who can take away tumors, He's still the same God tonight; for it's Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever. You believe that? Heavenly Father, Who is my witness, with this Bible over my heart, knows that word by word of that is as true as I know how to say it. What good would it do me to say something wrong, friends? What am I saying this for? That it might encourage you to believe. Now, that great gift... Others I tried to explain and say how it was done. This can't be explained. Just wait. It will not be in operation so perfectly now. Wait till that council of churches brings on that persecution; that's when it'll happen. That's the reason I come back among you to pray for the sick. I have never had but one thing that He ever told me in my life that I know that hasn't happened yet, that some sort of a building or a tent where there'd be a little building setting, and I'd have to go into that and pray for the sick. That hasn't happened yet as far as I know. That's the only thing that I know.
His Unfailing Words Of Promise Phoenix AZ 01-20-64
But the last thing was to be a great thing would take place. We've been watching for it for years. And we all know when it happened first, when a creation come into existence, the third time. And then the fourth time. Last night I told you the fifth time it happened. And it's waiting for this Council of Churches, when it unites, and the Protestants. If I speak Sunday morning, that's what I want... I mean Saturday morning, that's what I want to speak on. See? Now... And then when this gets together, then the Spirit of God always raises a standard against it. See? There's men setting here tonight who's a witness of this.
Gods Word Calls For a Total Separation PHOENIX AZ 01-21-64
But I want to run down the bank now and persuade them, "Come on back." See, I've got to have that feeling (See?), 'cause I know there's somebody out there that hasn't come in yet. And I'm--I'm going to fish till... He said...?... the last fish is caught. And I--I want to do that. Now. And now, in order to do this, I'm expecting something to happen in a prayer meeting, something... And many of you remember the vision of the--of the last Pull, that Third Pull, rather. You remember, there was something happened just before that: I seen that Light come and go down into that place, and said, "I'll meet you there." Now, I--I'm looking for something to happen......................
Now, I'm looking for something to happen, to start that Third Pull into march (See?), and may be the next Sunday morning healing service maybe produce that. I don't know.
Humble Thyself Jeffersonville IN 07-14-63 Evening
I want to make this statement, the reason I haven't had any healing lines this week, there's been something that's been on my heart. And I told you the last time here there was a new ministry coming. I spoke with some of the brethren today, and was telling them about what's happened. Just remember, that the first time I was here, you remember the Lord had told me something was going to happen: change in the ministry. It happened. Said another one's going to happen, and it happened. Now, there's a another one greater, far greater than all the rest of them put together, already confirmed and ready. I hope it happens tonight. I just might say that. I don't have the time to explain it to you, but the brethren who does know about it, it's wonderful. It'd be such a great thing for the people. And I am grateful to God that the hour is soon at hand (I believe it), when God is going to help His children. Especially, it'll be for those who can't muster the faith to raise up and get a hold of God like they should. I believe the Lord is providing a way for us now to take care of them also.
Some runs into the faith that they can just reach over and receive anything. Why, that's great faith. Some of them has mustard seed faith, and has to wait so long to get through. I believe the Lord is making a way for those people now. And I don't know when it will be, but it will be. Just as certain as I'm standing here, it will be.
Be Not Afraid It Is I Phoenix AZ 03-05-60
I believe that the church of the living God is moving into a sphere now that's going to shake the whole world. That's the first time it's been since the days of Jesus of Nazareth to a human being. "Ask anything that you will, and it shall be given unto you, anything you desire." Don't you see the words of Jesus Christ being fulfilled? Oh, it's going to come to pass pretty soon. I'm looking for it to happen in this meeting. I'm wanting it to happen now, that that anointing will strike the whole church of the living God, and she'll rise to her feet like a mighty marching army. The sick will be healed by a word; the blind will see; the deaf will hear; the dead will be raised up; and the power of God will shake the world with the church of the living God. We're in the process of it now. I believe it's soon coming to pass. I believe it will be just exactly that way. I believe it's going to strike the church of God soon, and it's going to start a revival that'll shake the world. I believe it. The Lord God of heaven Who made heavens and earth, whose servant I am, and stand here now before you, and in the Name of Jesus Christ, those words are true. Oh, we're near something. My heart's waiting with anticipation.
Speak To This Mountain San Jose CA 11-23-59
The people of God are being made ready by the Word of Truth from the messenger to this age. In her will be the fullness of Pentecost for the Spirit will bring the people right back to where they were at the beginning. That is "Thus saith the Lord."
An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages
The same power that rested in Jesus Christ, rests in the placed sons in the body of Christ. Placing of a son... Take him out in a certain place, have a ceremony before Angels, and place him positionally what he is in the body of Christ. Then that person has the authority. Let me say this, if you count me a fanatic from this night on. That very same thing that I'm speaking of will be done. There'll be a power put into the Church, and now is coming in, that the Holy Spirit will so anoint the people, till they'll speak the Word and It'll create Itself right there. We haven't seen powers like's coming into the Church now. I know it for a fact. "Say unto this mountain be moved. Don't doubt in your heart, but believe that what you've said shall come to pass, you can have what you have said.": the placing of the Church in position, where the fulness of the power of the Holy Ghost comes into the Church. Then critics mouths will be shut. It'll be a short time. Jesus come right off the mountain, went straight to Calvary. Notice, it won't last long, but it'll be here.
Hear Ye Him Phoenix AZ 03-13-60
I believe, (I'm not going to speak it in His Name; I'm going to speak it in my--in the revelation of my faith), what happened in Sabino Canyon the other day... I believe that the hour is approaching when missing limbs will be restored, and the glorious power of the Creator... I--I believe if He can make a squirrel appear that has no... Here if the man or woman just got a part missing, and that's complete animal in itself. Oh, He is God. I--I love Him.
The Fifth Seal Jeffersonville IN 03-22-63
You know, the hour will soon arise when--when right among us will be--the Holy Spirit will speak out like It did in Ananias and Sapphira...?... See, that hour is arriving. See? And we are... Now, you just remember that (See?) that God is going to dwell among His people. That's what He wants to do now.
Communion Tucson AZ 12-12-65
O Lord, I believe the hour is soon coming that when the loaves and fishes will be multiplied. There'll come a mark of the beast soon. There'll come a confederation of churches, and they'll put out a sign that--a unionized church that no man can buy or sell. And Your Church, it won't bother them; for Your Holy Spirit shall lead them and feed them as You did Israel in the wilderness. You are God. Don't let us miss that, Lord. Let us remain faithfully. Let us be true. Now, I don't know just when this will take place again, Lord, maybe this morning again.
New Ministry Jeffersonville IN 11-15-59
I pray that You'll save every one, Lord. May there come forth a revival of the just and a great power come among the church just before Its going. It's not hard to pray that, because You promised it. And we're looking, Lord, for that third pull that we know that'll do great things for us in our midst.
The Indictment Jeffersonville IN 07-07-63 Morning
Already the visible manifestations of what I have been telling you are seen all around us. The ecumenical move of the tares is factual. But also it is a fact that the prophet for the last age must be bringing forth a message from God that will forerun the second coming of the Lord, for by his message will the hearts of the children be turned back to the Pentecostal fathers, and with the restoration of the Word will come the restoration of the power.
An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages
Oh, brother, give me a church full of the Holy Ghost. God will do in one year what all theology's failed to do in two thousand years. You wait till the anointing of the church really strikes home to that faithful the little remnant. After the doors of the Gentiles is closed, oh, God will anoint a church then. "He who's filthy, let him be filthy still. He who's righteous let him be righteous still, and he who's holy let him be holy still." And God will anoint the church with the power of God, and things will be taken place.
Questions And Answers No2 Jeffersonville IN 01-03-54 Evening
Oh, I feel good, for I know the Spirit of the living God is here. I just seen something happen to set my soul afire. Oh, blessed be His Name. God will have a Church...?... It's not far down the road. We will be one. Our purpose will be one. Like the great temple when it went together, there wasn't a buzz of the saw or a sound of a hammer for forty years. God's cutting them out of the Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian, all funny looking blocks, but one of these days the Holy Ghost will come, that rejected Cornerstone and the building will go together without a murmur one of these days. Just exactly. The Stone that's been rejected is the Chief Cornerstone. You builders of these denominations, remember that. The rejected Stone is the Chief Cornerstone. He's here tonight. I believe Him. Oh, how wonderful. How glorious. I know that He's present. Oh, I wished you felt like I do. I know you think I'm... I may look silly, but I'm not. I may...
You may think that I don't know where I am, but I do. Oh, it is the Spirit of the living God. I just can't preach no more. There's just something, the joybells of glory has just set in on me. I never had it to happen like that. There's just something... I know there's coming a time. There's coming something that's going to take place. I see it in the near future, the Spirit of the living God falling fresh on His Church, there's going to be something take place. I hear a sound in the mulberry bushes. Something just spoke to my heart and said, "Fear not, preacher. They'll be one one of these days. They'll believe." It may take persecution and things to drive us together, but God will drive His Church together just as certain as I'm standing in this pulpit, under one, that's Christ. Christ will be the Head. No denomination will be the head. Christ will be the Head of every believer.
