AN EXPOSITION OF THE SEVEN THUNDERS
By Brother Ron Millevo
The Word of God and the Message is
written in RIDDLES. You and I, as
a Bride of Christ, must have the proper spiritual understanding from God
in order for us to grasp the mystery of the "Seven Thunders" correctly.
Here is my 9-point summary for my
understanding of it.
1. THE MYSTERIES OF THE SEVEN THUNDERS ARE ALREADY WRITTEN IN THE
BIBLE BUT WAS MISSED BACK THERE. NOTHING CAN BE ADDED TO THE BIBLE:
FEAST.OF.THE.TRUMPETS.title JEFF.IN V-3 N-16 64-0719M
"And he said that this--in THAT DAY that he see HIM come down, and he
EAT up the LITTLE BOOK. And there was... He put one foot on land and
one on the sea and swore by Him that lives and ever and ever, that
time shall be no more. And when He DID, SEVEN THUNDERS uttered their
VOICES. And when the SEVEN THUNDERS uttered their VOICES, John said
he was about to write; and He said, "Don't write it." See? And he
sealed it… WHAT IT IS, is a "REVELATION" on what has been MISSED BACK
there, to bring to... It's ALREADY WROTE here; it's IN HERE; it's to
REVEAL what's ALREADY's BEEN WRITTEN (See?), 'cause you
can't ADD one thing to It or take one word from It."
FIRST.SEAL.THE_ JEFF.IN MONDAY_ 63-0318
And then there's coming forth seven mysterious thunders that's not
even written at all. That's right. And I believe that through those
seven thunders will be revealed in the last days in order to get the
Bride together for rapturing faith; because what we got right now, we-
-we wouldn't be able to do it. There's something we've got to step
farther; we--we can't have enough faith for Divine healing hardly.
We've got to have enough faith to be changed in a moment and be swept
up out of this earth, and we'll find that after a while, the Lord
willing, **find where it's written.***
GOD.HIDING.HIMSELF.IN.SIMPLICITY_ ALBQ.NM FRIDAY_ 63-0412E
Something happened the other day. You read the--or heard the tape,
the seven thunders, "What Time Is It, Sir?" See? It happened the
other day. You know these things... The time is at hand, church. The
time is at hand. Don't--don't--don't wait any longer. See, how do you
know the rapture's not going on all the time? First thing you know
it'll be past, one disappearing here, and there. It'll be gone the
first thing you know, and you'll—judgment will strike the world. You
say, "Well, I thought this..." "It's too late now." You remember,
they didn't know it until the day they entered into the ark, and then
it was too late. The foolish virgin didn't know until she come back
and found the wise virgin gone. Then she was left for the tribulation
2. BROTHER BRANHAM CAN NO LONGER ADD TO THE BIBLE BY INTRODUCING ANY
NEW "THUNDERS" DOCTRINE. THAT'S ACCORDING TO HIS VERY OWN WORDS:
UNVEILING.OF.GOD_ JEFF.IN V-9 N-1 SUNDAY_ 64-0614M
"Now, someone has been, many has been saying to me, and theologians
said, "Brother Branham, if the Lord God..." Said, "If--if with your
experience that the Lord has given you for His people," humbly saying
this, said, "you'd be ELIGIBLE to WRITE a--a Bible yourself,
your Word that God has manifested."
I said, "That MIGHT be true." See, he was trying to CATCH me. See?
And I said, "But, you see, I COULDN'T do that."
He said, "Why couldn't? You have all the qualifications."
I said, "But, you look, ONE word CANNOT be ADDED or taken away." See?
And he said, "Well then, them SEVEN THUNDERS (You see?),"
said, "wouldn't them seven thunders blasting out, won't that be a
revelation be give to some man?"
I SAID, "NO, sir, it would be adding something to It or taking
something from It." It's ALL REVEALED IN THERE, and the SEVEN SEALS
OPENED up the revelation of WHAT that was. See?"
3. THE SEVEN SEALS AND THE SEVEN THUNDERS GO TOGETHER:
BREACH.THE.title JEFF.IN 63-0317E
"This SEVEN-SEALED BOOK is REVEALED at the TIME of the SEVEN THUNDERS
of Revelations 10."
4. A THUNDER MEANT A "VOICE" REVEALING A MYSTERY, NOT "VIRTUES", NOR
ANY "MAN" THAT'S TO COME AFTER BROTHER BRANHAM. JESUS SAID SO in this
JOHN -30- "Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a VOICE
from heaven, [saying], I have both glorified [it], and will glorify
[it] again. The people therefore, that stood by, and heard [it], said
that it THUNDERED: others said, An angel spake to him. Jesus answered
said, This VOICE came not because of me, but for your sakes."
5. BROTHER BRANHAM REVEALED THE THUNDERS BY FULFILLING DUTY # 2:
327-1 LAODICEAN.CHURCH.AGE - CHURCH.AGE.BOOK.CPT.9
"Now this MESSENGER of Malachi 4 and Revelation 10:7 is going to do
TWO things. One: According to Malachi 4 he will turn the hearts of
the children to the fathers. TWO: HE WILL REVEAL the MYSTERIES of the
SEVEN THUNDERS in Revelation 10 WHICH ARE the "REVELATIONS" CONTAINED
in the SEVEN SEALS. It will be these Divinely revealed
`mystery-truths' that literally turn the hearts of the children to
the Pentecostal fathers."
6. THE THUNDERS WERE MYSTERIES WHICH WERE REVEALED WHEN THE SEALS
QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS.title JEFF.IN COD 64-0830E
Q-395. "Have the SEVEN THUNDERS which EQUALS SEVEN MYSTERIES already
been revealed? Were they revealed in the Seven Seals, but are yet--
but are yet NOT known to us as the thunders yet?
Answer: No, THEY WERE REVEALED IN THE SEVEN SEALS; that's WHAT the
THUNDERS WAS ABOUT. They was TO REVEAL... The SEVEN THUNDERS that had
uttered their VOICES and no one could make out what it was... John
KNEW what it was, but he was forbidden to write it. He
said, "BUT the SEVENTH ANGEL, in the days of his sounding, the SEVEN
MYSTERIES of the SEVEN THUNDERS would be REVEALED." And the SEVENTH
angel is a "MESSENGER" of the SEVENTH church age. See?"
7. THE THUNDERS WERE CONTAINED INSIDE THE SEVEN SEALS. THE SEALS WERE
JUST THE COVERING:
Scriptural Reading: REVELATION 6:1-2
"And I saw when the Lamb OPENED one of the SEALS, and I HEARD, as it
were the NOISE of THUNDER, one of the FOUR BEASTS saying, Come and
SEE. And I saw, and behold a WHITE HORSE: and he that sat on him had
a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering,
and to conquer."
It's very plain here that the FIRST THUNDER was released in the TIME
of PAUL at
ANTICHRIST, impersonating the Word, while the LION Spirit from God,
was released through Paul, to counteract the forces of this white
horse rider. It signified the BOLDNESS of the preaching of the
Gospel. This was the first mystery in a row of seven.
When the SECOND THUNDER was revealed, it revealed a RED HORSE RIDER.
That was the second mystery of the SEALED VISION of DANIEL and JOHN.
It was counteracted by God's higher standard – God's second BEAST,
the CALF – a beast of burden, sacrifice, when the Christians were
persecuted, burned at stake, fed to lions, dying gladly for the Word
of God. Surely the HORSE here was RED, a blood-hungry devil riding on
When the THIRD THUNDER was revealed, it revealed a BLACK HORSE RIDER.
That was the THIRD mystery of the SEALED VISION of DANIEL and JOHN.
It was counteracted by God's higher standard – God's third BEAST- the
FACE OF A MAN – them REFORMERS from Luther, Wesley, Knox, Calvin,
Moody, all counteracting the black forces of the Catholic Church,
reforming the church, to bring the Bride into justification and
When the FOURTH THUNDER was revealed, it revealed a PALE HORSE RIDER.
That was the fourth mystery of the SEALED VISION of DANIEL and JOHN.
Death and Hell (it's eternal separation from God to receive the Mark
of this Beast) followed it. This pale horse rider
which rode along with the ministry of the end-time prophet was again
counteracted by God's higher standard – God's fourth BEAST, the
FLYING EAGLE – the prophetic age, time for soaring the deeper
mysteries of God, a time for the real outpouring of the Holy Ghost…
which is the end of the Gentile dispensation, the Laodecian Age.
When the FIFTH THUNDER was revealed while the SEAL was broken from
it, it revealed the SOULS UNDER THE ALTAR – The Jews that died under
Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, crying for vengeance against the cruel
people of this earth who put them in gas chamber and firing lines.
But it was promised unto them to wait for a little while for their
144,000 Jewish brothers that need to die and be purged in the
When the SIXTH THUNDER was revealed, it revealed a TRIBULATION
PERIOD. It revealed Moses and Elijah coming back again for the
144,000 Jews, the 12,000 remnants from each tribe. It revealed their
Joseph again revealing Himslef to His brethren, in nail-scarred
hands, while they wail in sackloth with tears in their eyes,
realizing that it was JESUS CHRIST who is their real Messiah.
When the SEVENTH THUNDER was revealed, it revealed a MIGHTY ANGEL
coming down with a BOOK OPEN, and there was silence in heaven for
half an hour, while the SON of MAN ministers here on earth. This was
fulfilled in the ministry of Brother Branham, when the constellation
of seven angels came down in
that were hidden since the foundation of the world. The Mighty Angel,
fulfilling in the flesh-body of the prophet of God Hebrews 13:8:
Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today and forever: doing the first
pull, second pull and the third pull.
These MYSTERY-TRUTHS (THUNDERS) today are what turns our HEART back
to the FAITH of our Fathers (Malachi 4:5-6). This is the real SEVEN
THUNDER MYSTERY that's still a puzzle to some. But Brother Branham
said it's already written in the Word, for no man can ADD or take
away from the Word, not even the seventh angel himself. Though the
SEVENTH SEAL EVENTS happen before the SIXTH SEAL, the church is
raptured while the SIXTH SEAL continues on to the Jews and to the
foolish virgins, until the consummation, the Battle of Armageddon.
8. SEVEN THUNDERS EQUALS SEVEN MEN? Let's see:

MESSENGERS, and then SAY what has been given them to SAY to the
PATMOS.VISION.title JEFF.IN ROJC 69-130 60-1204E
"Now, "The SEVEN STARS that was in My right hand." HE had SEVEN STARS
in His right hand, which MEANS the SEVEN MINISTERS of SEVEN AGES. Oh,
it's--it's beautiful. How we go back and get the--the minister that
brought the MESSAGE to the EPHESIAN church, and the MINISTER who
brought the MESSAGE and held with It until death, right down to the
SMYRNA church, and to the PERGAMOS church, the THYATIRA, and ON DOWN
through the AGE, even into this AGE NOW. The MINISTERS that kept and
brought the LIGHT, and held It back like the ORIGINAL at the
BEGINNING, and brought the LIGHT through, He HELD THEM in His right
SEVEN.CHURCH.AGES.title JEFF.IN V-26 N-2 54-0512
"When those SEVEN VOICES uttered their--the SEVEN THUNDERS uttered
their VOICES, He said, "Seal it; not known until the last day." He
said. "But the TIME this mystery of God should be FINISHED, when
these will be REVEALED to the Church; and He swore by Him that lives
forever and forever, that time should be no more."
LISTEN what He said there then. He said, "Go thy way, Daniel; shut up
the Book." See? "For thou shall rest, and you shall stand in the last
days in your lot. But many of those who turn many to righteousness
shall outshine the STARS forever and forever." THERE YOU
ARE, "STARS," those SEVEN MINISTERS, seven ministers, THROUGH Seven
Church Ages, which CONSISTS of TWO THOUSAND YEARS."
PATMOS.VISION.title JEFF.IN ROJC 69-130 60-1204E
And, remember, the SEVEN STARS was in His right hand. Just think,
they were DRAWING their current, THEIR LIGHT from HIM. They were
completely under His control in His right hand. Oh. Every true
servant of God is the same way. Held in... Who can harm them? Who can
harm them? As one of the angels cried back there at the beginning.
Remember a "ANGEL" means "MESSENGER." We get into those deeper things
later in the week. "A angel" means "messenger."
9. THE COMING OF THE LORD (REVELATION 10)
SOULS.IN.PRISON.NOW.title JEFF.IN. V-2 N-22 63-1110M
The Lamb took His Book when the Seventh Seal, just ready for it to be
opened--the Sixth Seal. Remember, He hid the Seventh Seal from us. He
wouldn't do it. When the Angel stood day by day telling it, but then
He wouldn't do it on that one. Said, "There's silence in heaven." No
one knew. It was the coming of the Lord.
1 And I saw another MIGHTY ANGEL come down from heaven, clothed
with a cloud: and a rainbow [was] upon his head, and his face [was]
as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:
2 And he had in his hand a little BOOK OPEN: and he set his
right foot upon the sea, and [his] left [foot] on the earth,
3 And cried with a loud voice, as [when] a LION roareth: and
when he had cried, SEVEN THUNDERS uttered their voices.
4 And when the SEVEN THUNDERS had uttered their voices, I was
about to write: and I heard a VOICE from heaven saying unto me, SEAL
UP those things which the SEVEN THUNDERS uttered, and write them not.
5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the
earth lifted up his hand to heaven,
6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created
heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the
things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are
therein, that there should be TIME NO LONGER:
7 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.
While the MIGHTY ANGEL comes down from heaven placing His right foot
upon the sea and the left foot upon the earth with an OPEN BOOK,
seven thunders uttered their VOICES:
3 THINGS HAPPEN DURING THE COMING OF THE LORD:
SHOUT –VOICE – TRUMP (FOR THE BRIDE : ONE GREAT TRUMPET)
1st Corinthians 15:51-52 &
Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall
all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last
trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised
incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal [must]
put on immortality.
1st Thessalonians 4:15-17::
"For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are
alive [and] remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them
which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with
a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:
and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together with
them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever
be with the Lord."
