1The End-Time Judgment Plagues
[Romans 1:18] For the wrath of God is revealed (apokolupsis - laid open, made known, uncovered) from heaven against all (ungodliness) lacking reverence toward God and (un-right-wiseness) of men, who hold down (hinder or suppress), the truth in un-right-wise-sness; Here Paul is speaking of the wrath of God that will come upon all those who withhold the Truth, suppress it, or hinder it by holding back from the people that which has been vindicated to be True by the very essence of God's phaneroo absolutely declaring His Word. [Matt 23:13]

2[19] For that which is known about God is evident to them and made plain in their inner consciousness, because God Himself has shown it to them) God hath phaneroo'd unto them. In other words, He has openly manifested in His True Character, and yet they still turn it down. ( Now this takes His personal Presence to do this, therefore this scripture could not have been fulfilled in any other age.)
[20] For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead (Godhood) ; so that they are without excuse: Now, had God done all these things in a corner, they would not be held accountable. But these know what God has done and they turn away from it, therefore, they are without excuse. And this word excuse is a Greek word which means without a defense, or defenseless. Therefore, they have left themselves defenseless just like Eve did back in the garden when she stepped out from behind the protection of the word. And then what happened? The serpent inoculated her with a germ that upon entering into her blood brought forth death. (The day you eat thereof is the day you die.") So death enters into the human race. Now, why do we bring this in here? Because that is exactly what Paul is telling them.

3By turning down God's Mercy, there's nothing left but God's wrath. This then is the same as we see in Hebrews 6, where God shows forth Himself in a once for all enlightenment and they still turn it down, then there's nothing left for God to do but send forth the plagues and His judgment. Then what we're looking at in Romans 1:18-28 is the wrath of God which are the judgments that God has determined for those who openly and willfully turn away from Truth, and willfully withhold It from others.)

4[21] Because that, when they knew God, they glorified [him] not as God, (therefore, these are men who knew better, but they would not give Him the proper glory and respect. neither were they thankful; but they became vain (empty or worthless) (in their questioning of what is truth?), and their foolish hearts unintelligent without understanding, were clouded and darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four footed beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed (substituted) the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
Rev 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

526 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind,( a mind that could not stand the test), to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, they become covenant breakers, (faithless) , without natural affection, implacable (unbending, unsatisfied, inflexible, rancorous and relentless) ,in other words - unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

6Today we shall look extensively at how God deals with the people who turn Him down in each age. We see a time line showing every time God opens a seal in heaven, a mystery is declared, a Gospel trumpet sounds, a message goes forth, and a spiritual war takes place. Then when the Message is rejected, God sends down plagues as a temporary judgment for those who have rejected His mercy.
This shows in type the great judgments to come. We will see how that in each age an angel messenger ss sent forth with a trumpet and a vial full of plagues which is the wrath of God. Now the question is, How will these plagues come? And by what means? The answer is in the scripture as we shall continue to read.

726 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections:( Now what is vile affection? What does the word vile suggest? Morally base and evil, depraved) and notice then what Paul tells us they do as a result of this vile affection. for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet. Now, before we even go any further with the Scripture here, let's just stop and review what Paul is telling us.

8He's saying that first of all they turn down mercy, and then there is only one thing left and that is judgment. Mercy then judgment. Hence the wrath of God. Now how does this wrath of God come upon them? Does God send down lightning bolts and kill innocent people? Does God send them pestilence and earthquake because they are innocent? No, God has never destroyed man. Man always destroys himself. Man brings on his own judgment. As brother Branham said, he must be in the spirit of destruction for destruction to come.

9From the message Preparation 53-1111 brother Branham said, I believe that the people are in the preparation of the last great destruction this world will ever know. I believe we're at the end. You can speak to people; you could put a Billy Graham in every city in the United States; they'd drink whiskey and smoke cigarettes and laugh at you and everything else just the same. They are in the spirit of the last days. And God cannot send destruction before the people are in the spirit for destruction. God never did destroy anything. Man always destroys himself. The Message Trumpet is declaring, Grace and Mercy for all that would receive it, and to reject Mercy leaves only judgment.

10Notice what Paul says in [Romans 9:22], [What] if God, willing to shew [his] wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much long-suffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: Now, what does this word fitted to destruction mean? The word fitted to is a Greek word which means they are prepared for. If I fit something to something else, then what I am doing is preparing that thing to match the other. Then the judgment matches the judged, right? Remember, where there is a deep calling there is a deep to respond. Brother Branham said, that there couldn't have been a fish with a fin until there had been first a water to swim in. Then who prepares them? God made them for destruction. But He has left them with a free moral agency to prepare themselves. And how do they do they prepare themselves for destruction? [Proverbs 14:12] says, There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. They take their own way above God's way.

11So in getting back to Romans 1, we saw how they turn down the mercy of God and yet so far all we have seen is that they begin to lean toward vile affection. And yet right after this Paul says likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet. So we see here the order of the plagues.
#1) God sends forth a Message of repentance which is a call to change your thinking.
#2) they turn down the mercy of God
#3) their minds having turned from God turn toward each other For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections.
#4) they do an evil act men with men, women with women.
#5) thus receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet. Now, what does the scripture mean by recompense of their error which was meet. In other words, you will reap what you sow. They sew error, and they will receive death. The word recompense means payback and that which was meet means that which was owed to them. Therefore the plagues are their payback.

12How the HIV virus works. DNA creates RNA. Transcription DNA writes code to RNA. The cell is called a messenger cell. goes forth to pre-plan need. But Aids is a false messenger. It actually reverses the order. It's aids virus is an RNA cell with it's own code. It attaches self to DNA and causes DNA to become aids factory. HIV invades T cells. defense cells. Leaving the person defenseless.

13Therefore they are without excuse, in other words they are left defenseless. The aids virus does not kill you, it just strip your bodies defenses, and other things kill you, like flue or cold or TB, or just about any mild disease or illness. The day you eat thereof is the day you will surely die. Notice vs 25 (substitute)

14Now, before we deal more specifically with the wrath of God let's continue at Romans 1:28.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, (a mind that could not stand the test), to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all un-right-wise-ness, They fall into first of all, fornication, wickedness,(depravity) covetousness,(greed) maliciousness; (desire to injure) full of envy (which is hatred because of jealousy) and this leads to, murder which is what Cain did for the very same reason, other attributes include debate which is strife or variance, deceit, malignity(which is an evil influence);which causes them to become whisperers or secret slanderers,
30 In other words, Backbiters, and haters of God, despiteful ( this means they heap insulting language), proud (overabundance of self esteem), they become boasters, inventors or contrivers of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, they become covenant breakers, (faithless) , without natural affection, they become implacable (unbending, unsatisfied, inflexible, rancorous and relentless) ,in other words - unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. And since they turn down mercy they become unmerciful. They turn down faith and therefore they are faithless. What a wicked condition to be in. Therefore the judged fit themselves to the judgment. They cause the judgments themselves. They fit themselves to them.

15Now we are promised that God's wrath will deal with these people at the end-time. And as you know, We have found that the judgments of God which we are reading about here are brought to earth at the time of the seventh angels message. Remember, when Brother Branham through the rock in the air He said the judgments of God are in the earth and a couple days later Alaska was nearly destroyed by an earthquake. He had to do something for them to start, just like Moses through up ashes into the air to bring forth the judgments in his day.

16Therefore we see in the scriptures that in each age, there is a messenger that comes forth with a message, and when the people rejected that Message, then God sends down a plague as a temporary judgment.

17[Revelations 15:1] And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God. notice that there are 7 angels and each one has a plague.

18[Revelations 15:7] And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and ever. Now, here we see more specifically that these last plagues are contained in seven golden vials.

19[Revelations 16:1] And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth. Notice what is told to these angels. Notice that each one is told to go his way. What is the Way? It is the Message of their hour. Ps 103:7

20[Psalm 86:11 & 119:30] In fact in [John 14:6] we hear Jesus tell us that He is "The Way, The Truth and The Life... and we know that He is the Word. Therefore, these angels are sent each one on his way with His message and they also bring with them the vials full of God's judgment.

21#36) 420-4 {198} The First Seal 63 He sent forth the first messenger, and he preached, and the trumpet sounded (as we pick it up after while); and then the trumpet was declaring war. Trumpet always denotes war. The messenger, the angel come on earth, the messenger of the hour, like Luther's, like any of the messengers that we've talked of. What does he do? He arrives, and a Seal opened, reveals; a trumpet sounds, war declared, and away they go. And then the messenger dies. He seals away this group; they're put in; and a plague falls upon those who rejected it. See? And then it goes on, then they organize, get another organization. (We've just come through it.)

22Now, what are we driving at this morning? What I am trying to address to you is this. Is it later than we think. I want you to notice something. In our text this morning, we hear Paul talking about the wrath of God that will fall upon those who hold back the Word of God in unrighteousness. Now, we have seen that each messenger, comes with a message.

23Each Message is the Gospel Trumpet that is declaring a Mystery that had been sealed but is now being declared in it's ordained age. When that Seal is broken, and that Message went forth, it starts a spiritual warfare that ends with rejection and judgment. God then sends forth plagues and diseases to bring forth a temporary judgment to those people what rejected His Message.

24#34) 126-3 {61} The First Seal 63-0318 He come in the first age, the Ephesian Age, revealed, sent the messenger. Notice what happened as we go along. Here's the plan of it: The first thing happens, there is an announcement in the heavens first. What happened? A Seal is opened. What is that? A mystery is unfolded. See? And when a mystery unfolds, then a trumpet sounds. It declares a war. Or a plague falls, and a church age opened. See? What is the war part? The angel of the Church catches the mystery of God, not fully yet revealed, but when he does, he catches this mystery of God, and then he goes forth to the people (after the mystery has been given to him), goes forth to the people. What does he do out there? He begins to proclaim that message, and what does it start? A war, a spiritual war.

25OK, then what happens? Those who believe that message and enter into it, are sealed away and hidden from the plagues or judgment. But those who reject are sent the plagues to destroy them for rejecting The Message for their age. And why does Brother Branham call these plagues a temporary judgment? Because they are just showing what is in store for them at the White throne Judgment.

26#35) 126-5 {65} The First Seal 63-0318 And then God takes His messenger with the elect of that age, and lays them away asleep, and then He drops a plague upon them who rejected it: a temporary judgment. And then, after that is over, then he goes on, and they denominate, and bring in denominations, and start off with that man's work like of Wesley and all the rest of them, and then it gets all in a scrapple again; and then another mystery comes forth. Then what happens? Another messenger arrives on earth for a church age. See? Then when he arrives, the trumpet sounds. He declares war. See? And then what happens? Finally then he's caught away. And then when he's laid away, then plague falls destroys them. Spiritual death hits the church and she's gone, that group. Then He goes on to another one. Oh, it's a great plan until it comes to that last angel. Now, he has no certain mystery, but he gathers up all that's been lost in them other ages, all the truths that wasn't truly revealed yet (See?), as the revelation come. Then he reveals those things in his day. If you want to read it, there it is: A Revelations 10:1 to about 4. You'll get it. All right. See?

27Notice that Brother Branham speaks of God having a plan...He says... Here's the plan of it: The first thing happens, there is an announcement in the heavens first. What happened? A Seal is opened. What is that? A mystery is unfolded. See? And when a mystery unfolds, then a trumpet sounds. It declares a war. Or a plague falls. Now if there is a plan, then these things are fore known, right? And if they are foreknown, then God also foreknows those who will receive this Seal, and those who will not, right? Then when the Seal is broken and declared, it seals in one group and seals out all others.

28Now, the Plan is this: #1) A Seal is opened, right? That's number One, and what does a seal being broken do? It allows you to see what was locked up and kept previously from view. Therefore, by Faith we are able to see what God is revealing, because Faith is the first thing, it is the foundation stone. And all that can not receive the revelation for the hour they live are therefore faithless.

29#2) When the Seal is broken, It actually allows for us to see and by seeing it seals us in, but by rejecting to look, the others, all others become sealed out. Then what is happening here? One group is locked in and the other is locked out. What would we call this? Separation, right? Let's see if we're not right.

3059 The Token 64-0208 Likewise, we must remember that God is long-suffering, not willing that any should perish. He always sends His signs, His wonders. And then when He gets ready to do anything, He separates the believer from the unbeliever. And notice then how He provided for His promised-land people. Look what He did for His promised-land people there, to be sure that they would not be mixed up in some kind of an ism. What did He do? He sent a prophet to them, Moses, with a message identifying God's Word. And to identify Moses, He sent a Pillar of Fire that hung over him. Amen. Then to give him the perfect assurance, He required a token. Amen. There's a messenger, the message, and the vindication, and the token, the perfect assurance that they had nothing to worry about. No matter how many plagues strike, what everybody else says they are sealed away.

31The separation by revelation always begins a warfare, a Spiritual warfare. It always has. In the beginning Michael disputed with Lucifer and then warfare broke out. Then on earth, Cain disputed with Abel. And really, who did He really dispute with? God! Then after the dispute, Cain killed Abel. Warfare! It's been the same in every age. Look at Jacob and Esau. Revelation received by one and rejected by the other. A dispute, then warfare. Look at Joseph and His Brothers, Revelation received by one, the same revelation rejected by others. A dispute and then warfare. The same in Moses day, Revelation received by one, the same revelation rejected by others. A dispute and then warfare. Daniel's day, the same. Elijah's day, the same. David's day, the same. In fact we find this example entirely throughout the scriptures from Genesis through Revelations. A Revelation, a dispute over that revelation, then warfare. Then what?

32#3) Those who are sealed in are protected from the judgments that are to follow, and those who are sealed out, are fitted for destruction. They fit themselves. Notice [Romans 9:22] [What] if God, willing to shew [his] wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much long-suffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: Now, what does this word fitted to destruction mean? The word fitted to is a Greek word which means they are prepared for. If I fit something to something else, then what I am doing is preparing that thing to match the other. Then the judgment matches the judged? Remember, where there is a deep calling there is a deep to respond. Brother Branham said, that there couldn't have been a fish with a fin until there had been first a water to swim in. Then who prepares them? God made them for destruction. But He has left them with a free moral agency to prepare themselves. And how do they do they prepare themselves for destruction? [Proverbs 14:12] says, There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. They take their own way above God's way.

33E-16 Preparation 53-1111 I believe that the people are in the preparation of the last great destruction this world will ever know. I believe we're at the end. You can speak to people; you could put a Billy Graham in every city in the United States; they'd drink whiskey and smoke cigarettes and laugh at you and everything else just the same. They are in the spirit of the last days. And God cannot send destruction before the people are in the spirit for destruction. God never did destroy anything. Man always destroys himself. The Message Trumpet is declaring, Grace and Mercy for all that would receive it, and to reject Mercy leaves only judgment.

34E-14 Planting the Vine and Where to Plant It 59-0920 In the Scriptures, we find that Jambres and Jannes withstood Moses by doing practically the same things he did, by casting down the rod and turning to a serpent. Moses called for plagues, and they could call plagues too. They couldn't heal, because God is the only Healer. But they could cause plagues to come; then Moses took them away.

35E-63 5 Junctures of Time 56-0122 We got the impersonators. We got people pretending to be, when they're not. And the Bible said, "As Jambres and Jannes withstood Moses, so will these men of reprobated mind concerning the truth," in the last days at the junction we're at now And there stood Jambres and Jannes when Moses threw down and performed a miracle of God. They impersonated it and done a miracle too with their stick. And Moses called for plagues, and they called plagues. It's the devils turned loose. And notice that they are called reprobates concerning the truth, and they have a reprobate mind, and this is what Paul is also speaking of concerning the wrath of God coming against all the would hold back the truth in unrighteousness which is a wrong understanding.

36And as he goes down into Egypt, he took his stick, and cast it down, and healed his hand with leprosy, and done those things, then I want you to notice every time the miraculous was done, Satan's always there to counterfeit it. And as he was counterfeiting it that day, he's still the same counterfeiter today. Even his counterfeits only point to the end time at the junction. He had some old soothsayers and--down there by the name of Jambres and Jannes, who stood up and they could throw their rods down, turn them to serpents and so forth and do just like they did. But God vindicated who was God's. They could bring plagues, but they could not perform Divine healing

37Now, this then brings us to another thought. We can see that God has a plan, and in this plan He is to bring forth a Message, and He knows those few who will receive it, because He has ordained for them to receive it. In [Acts 13:48] we read, "As many as were ordained to eternal life believed." [II Timothy 2:19] Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, ( What Seal?) The Lord knoweth them that are his.

38Now, God knowing then, who would and who would not believe, He then prepares His Messengers for the task at hand. And each is given a golden vial which contains the wrath of God. So before that angel messenger even shows up to earth, He has been given a vial that has death in it, and yet that death can not touch those with the seal of God. For God has commanded that it not even touch them.

39[Rev 7: 1-3] Brother Branham said this is the same as Ezekiel 9.

217-39 Q&A Hebrews PT 1 57-0925 Let's get Revelations the 7th chapter, and we'll find out in here now where--what It said. It's a beautiful thing. And after this... I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth,... (Now, this parallels Ezekiel 9, where he saw the destruction of the Jews. And here he sees the destruction of the Gentiles, Revelations the 7th chapter.)... And... I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds... ("Winds" means "war and strife.")... that the wind should not blow upon the earth, nor on the sea,... or any tree... (Now, that's war, holding.).

4089 Ten Virgins 60-1211M Now, you see, and then all of Jerusalem was destroyed. Now, this here is perfectly a parallel: Revelations 7. Now, watch. From the time of Titus besieging Jerusalem, within the world, there hasn't been a time down through history that all the world went to war until 1914.

4193-207 Q & A 54-0103M Now, "On four corners of the earth, holding the four winds." In other words, here went the winds blowing in the wars and strife to come all over the world. When did that ever happen? Never until the First World War. "Holding the winds," and they were striving, going in to take over. And now, here come another One. Now, if you'll watch and refer that Angel, He's the same Angel that come out in Ezekiel 9, when the men come from hinder their gates with slaughtering weapons and was going through Jerusalem to slaughter the Jews. You remember? He said, "Hold it. Hold it. Stop it, till you go through the city and put a mark on every forehead that sighs and cries for the abominations done in the city." Is that right? Then after He did that, then He let them go in and slaughter. That was the persecution under Titus. Now, you see, he's the same Angel come forth again, coming from the east, from where Jesus shall come, and He has the Seal of the living God. Glory.

42[Ezekiel 9:4] And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof. 9:5 And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity: 9:6 Slay utterly old [and] young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom [is] the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Notice where the judgments are to begin? To those who have heard His word. Then how much ought we to be living this word, brethren. How ought we to be conducting our lives according to this Message?

43[Revelations 9:4] And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. Therefore, when God sends a Prophet, a messenger, that messenger is a sign of impending doom. The Prophet is a sign of a soon coming judgment.

44#41) E-20 Voice of the sign 64-0313 The coming of a prophet is a warning sign that judgment is at hand, always has been. Let me just quote one. Look at Noah rising up in the days of the antediluvian world, a prophet prophesying. What was it? Judgment struck immediately after. Moses went into Egypt, a vindicated prophet with the signs of the prophet. What happened? Judgment struck Egypt right afterwards. Elijah come on the scene, the prophet, and prophesied to Ahab and that nation. What happened? Judgment struck it right afterwards.

45#42) E-32 Voice of the Sign 64-0321E Notice. The coming of a prophet is a warning sign of judgment at hand. Did you know that? Judgment is ready to strike. If there is a prophet in the land, remember, he's certainly first got to be vindicated by God and the Word for that day...... Now, watch. The coming of this prophet gives the sign of judgment is at hand always Now, therefore, we have seen thus far that in every age when God sent a prophet, he sends Him with a Message and that message is ordained for a small group of Predestinated individuals who are ordained to believe and receive that Message. That is who the Message is for. It is a Message of safety, Salvation and deliverance, to come into the safety net of God, for judgment is about to strike. we have seen that when each Gospel trumpet went forth a war followed, spiritually and then plagues.

46Now since we have a Message for each age, we also have a punishment for those who reject that Message.. Now with each of these Church ages we have both a Message and a plague that followed, and I would like to diagram this for you that you can see historically for yourself what has taken place.

48#32) 30 Seven Church ages 54-0512 When the sixth one sound... We'll get on that maybe the sealing away on Friday night. When the First World War, why, that Sixth Trumpet sounded exactly according to the time God spoke of it, exactly, geographically, following the seal before that. And when the mystery was revealed in there, for the baptism of the Holy Ghost, and the people then, how the Church did not move up; and those who were moving refused to walk in Light, and went back; and the plague was opened at that time, and poured out upon the earth, which was influenza, that killed all the people as it did, the thousands times thousands... And then coming down into this last age where we are here... And just come and listen what the Lord has to say about it in His Word. Now, that isn't my makeup. I'm just reading it like a newspaper right out of the Word of God. So this is His direct revelation to the Church, to the Church: The Revelation of Jesus Christ to the Church.

49#33) 195 Revelations Chptr 5 Part 2 61-0618 When the first seal was opened up, the first trumpet sounded and the first plague fell. When the sixth seal opened up, the sixth sounded and the sixth plague fell. Just watch it; it's the most beautiful thing that you ever seen. And when I do, I'm going to get me a big, great big blackboard, bring it up here and just teach it right across here, so we just take plenty of time on each seal, and go back and take up the history and things, and prove just when it happened, and show right here in the Bible when It said it would take place, and right exactly when it happened, just the date and everything else. I got it (See?), got it from Him. That's right.

50Now we have shown what has happened during the 6 first ages, A Seal was opened, a Message went forth, a spiritual war broke out, the Message was rejected, and God sent plagues upon the people. But what about the seventh age. That's the age that we are living.

51#37) 39-2 Feast of the Trumpets 64-0719M Read in your book here and see if that between the Sixth and Seventh Trumpet isn't injected in there with the Jews being called out. Between the Sixth and Seventh Plague, we come over with that one hundred and forty-four thousand (you remember that?), which was between that. Do you remember between the Sixth Seal and the Seventh Seal, there was a calling out of the one hundred and forty-four thousand. You remember that? Now, there's where these trumpets come in, right there (See?) and persecution of horses loosed on there. Then between that--then there was to be the seventh angel's Message that had been preaching and condemning the Pentecostals. And Jesus had been put out, wouldn't have no cooperation with nobody, be put on the outside, rejected (The Bible said so.); for it's Christ made manifest among us, Jesus among us all made manifest in the purity of His Word, making It known. And if that... This is not just makeup, friends, this is THUS SAITH THE LORD, the Scripture.

52If we are to follow this through with what I have already laid out by scripture for you, then the last angel doesn't have just one plague, but all seven, as we shall see in the scripture.

53[Rev 17:1] And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: Notice that this one angel has all seven vials and he is the one who pronounces judgment on the great whore church and her harlot daughters.

54[Rev 18:4] And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. Notice how this one angel shows mercy first by shouting forth a message for those who are in to come out before it is too late? Mercy then judgment.

55[Rev 18:8] Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong [is] the Lord God who judgeth her. Here we see the plagues that will befall this whore church and her harlot daughter, Spiritual death, and physical death, mourning, famine and then burning.
[Rev 21:9] And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife. Now, notice that this angel is to show or present the Bride of Christ, and he is the same one that brought forth the vials containing the seven last plagues.

56Now, what are these seven last plagues? Could they be the six plagues that have already been let loose upon the earth? Only this time they will be all let loose at the same time? Remember, Rev 9:15 tells us 1/3 of the world will be killed by these plagues and that means nearly 2 billion people this time around. Brother Branham told us what the seventh plague was. Spiritual death, and we already see that plague has taken over the churches, and there are nearly 2 billion people that claim to be Christian today. The people are spiritually dead every where you look and it has come right into this Message because remember, "judgment begins in the house of the Lord," and let's face it, that is what this judgment is all about. Those who are closest to the Door without entering in are in the greatest danger of all because they had better know better, which reminds me of what Brother Vayle told one sister who was spouting off how she was not responsible because she did not know, and he said, your wrong, you are responsible therefore you had better know. Ignorance is no excuse when the judgments of God begin to fall.

57134 Oncoming Storm 60-0229 We see the newspapers and the oncoming storm. When you go home tonight, do me one favor, don't go to bed till you read Revelations the 8th chapter. You see the oncoming plagues and storms, that shall hit the earth, and thunders and lightning's are going to shake the heavens. Woes are going to pass over the nation. Men will rot in their flesh. Diseases will strike them the doctors knows nothing about. But remember, before that took place there was a sealing went forth. And the death angels and the plagues was commissioned by God, "Don't come near any of those who has the Seal in their forehead." And the Seal of God is the baptism of the Holy Spirit; Ephesians 4:30 says, "Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby you are sealed until the day of your redemption." No matter how hard the ark rocked, no matter how many times the lightning struck close to it, "Ten thousand shall fall on your right, and thousands to your left, and it shall come not nigh thee." The Holy Spirit...

58Ephesians 4:30 "Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby you are sealed until the day of your redemption." No matter how hard the ark rocked, no matter how many times the lightning struck close to it, "Ten thousand shall fall on your right, and thousands to your left, and it shall come not nigh thee."

59100 Jezebel Religion 61-0319 When God sends forth a message and tells the people, and they don't receive it, then He withdraws His servant and sends His plagues: famine, death, spiritually speaking, physically also. You watch for a depression, brother. You think you've seen something; you just wait after while. You haven't seen nothing. You think you're dying for a good spiritual revival; you wait till after a bit. You just wait, long and cry to hear the Word of God. The Bible said so. "There'll be a famine in the last days," said the prophet, "and not for bread and water alone, but for hearing the true Word of God." But that voice will be quiet in the wilderness somewhere, hid away.

6057 Israel at the Red Sea 2 53-0327 Now, we're coming down to the last plague, last thing. God said, "I'm tired fooling now. I'm going to give the last plague." Now, I want you to notice; the last plague was death. Now, we've had earthquakes; we've had wars and rumors of wars; we've had tidal waves, as Jesus said would be, the sea a-roaring, man's heart failing, more heart trouble (number one disease), fear, perplex of time, distress between the nations, horseless carriages in the broad ways, all these things fulfilled. But the last plague is death, not physically speaking, but spiritually speaking, death, spiritually in the church. You notice it was amongst the sons: spiritual death. The church has got more members than it ever had, thriving better than it ever did, and yet the weakest in spirit that it ever was. That's true. That's just like it was in Egypt.

6156 Israel at Kadesh Barnea 53-0328 Notice. Then God, after fixing Moses, getting him ready, sent out the--the signs, then the last sign we taken last night was death. And we found out, that spiritual death in the church, the last plague now, church drying up, blowing away. That's right. We're living in a horrible time. How that the church, the old-timers that used to really have the victory is losing out, dying time, letting the Blood get off the front of the door. "When I see the Blood I'll pass over you."

62E-16 God's Provided Way 53-0613 Moses took God's provided way when they were down there in Egypt. How they going to get out? It... God kept hardening Pharaoh's heart. But He said, "Now, I'm going to make a way of escape, because I'm going to send death over the land." Say, listen, here's something striking. Watch, plague after plague after plague, but the last plague fell was death, just before the deliverance. Notice it. How striking it is today. Jesus said there'll be--perilous times shall come, men's hearts would fail; how He said they'd be distress between the nations, sea a roaring, tidal waves that's never been heard of before, bursting forth in the seas. How that in all these things, signs would be coming to pass. Just like it was in the days of Noah, it would be again. How marvelous. But remember, the last plague that fell was death. And the last thing... God has give us warning after warning, warning after warning. Now, the last thing that's come is death, spiritual death. The churches are dying spiritually.

63Now, we that the seventh plague is spiritual death and we know for certain that this has taken place. But remember also that the spiritual comes before the natural. The thought must come before the action, and therefore, the spiritual death takes place before the actual dying out in the flesh begins. Then how close are we, especially as we sit here this morning and know that there are people that are walking death, filled with these last age plagues which their flesh is rotting away as they try to live.

64And what about he rest of those vials. There was seven vials exposed during the seven church ages, and to think, if 37-40 million people were killed because the church rejected the revelation of the Baptism of the Holy Ghost, then how much greater will be the punishment for rejecting the Baptizer Himself, the Holy Ghost Himself. we have seen that the Black Plague went forth just as the seals revealed the black horse turned into a pale horse riding forth, and he was called death.

65Rev 16:9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory. Rev 16:21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, [every stone] about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

66Zech 14:12 And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.

67E-93 Five Junctions of Time 56-0122 One day, the Bible says, that things will break out on this earth and diseases and things, and all the people will be plagued, till the flesh shall rot on them and so forth. But the Bible says, "Don't you come near any of those who has the Seal of God in their forehead." And the Seal of God is the baptism of the Holy Ghost.

6888 Adoption or Placing 60-0522E You think cancer's something? The Bible said there's coming a time when men will rot right in their flesh, and the buzzards will eat off of carcasses before they even die. Cancer's a toothache to what's a coming. But, remember, that horrible thing was forbidden in that day to touch those who had the Seal of God. That's what we're striving for now, to get in and be positionally placed into the Kingdom of God before these horrible plagues strike.

69109 Revelation Chptr 4 Pt 1 60-1231 War... This is the setting of the great battle; the people that rejected God's message, rejected the Holy Spirit, the Messenger of the seven churches. The one that had rejected this message of His grace had nothing left, but judgment was ready. All right. He's making ready to pour out the plagues upon the earth now. "Come up hither and I'll show you what's fixing to take place. Christ-rejecting, godless sinners, I'm going to pour out My wrath upon them."

70But listen, we have a hope like no other people because, God promised us... PS 91:10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. Psalm 34:7 "The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear Him, and delivereth them." Now, do you believe that He is still here? If you don't your on your own.
