  • 4. The infamous story of Jezebel Elijah’s prophecy of her deathand her death. (2 Kings 9:30-37). had already been forgotten… but, it was still ‘thus saith the Lord.’ Jehu & the Israelite army were on the move, and unknowingly fulfilling Elijah’s prophecy… Jezebel was thrown out the window, trampled by horses and eaten by dogs. Moments before her death, Jezebel knew she was getting ready to be killed by Jehu. When she heard he was coming she put on makeup and fixed her hair. This act tells a lot about her character.
  • 5. Thyatira: The FOURTH AgeRevelation 2:18-29 ¶ Unto the angel of the church of Thyatira write; Thesethings saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flameof fire, and his feet are like fine brass. I know thy works, andcharity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; andthe last to be more than the first. Notwithstanding I have a fewthings against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel,which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce myservants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed untoidols. And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and sherepented not. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them thatcommit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repentof their deeds. And I will kill her children with death; and all thechurches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins andhearts: 5

It will be a prophet.”3. 2006, Joseph Branham, St. Petersburg, Russia; "Ibelieve that everything Brother Branham says is ThusSaith The Lord.” “If this Message is your absolute thenwe can fellowship with one another.

  • 11. Laodicea: The SEVENTH Age Messenger – Wm. Branham aka Elijah the Prophet (Rev 2:8,11; Rev 10:1-7; Mal 4:5-6; Luke 17:30) God prophesied, “I will send you Elijah…before the…day of the Lord” (Mal 4:5. Jesus said this man would „restore all things‟ (Matt 17:11). What does this mean? Who is this prophet-messenger, angel to the 7th church age? Has he come already? Is he yet to appear? Will this Elijah be one of the two witnesses? How will we recognize him? 11
  • 12. Laodicea: The SEVENTH AgeMessenger – Wm. Branham aka Elijah the Prophet How will we recognize him? Most ages had difficulty recognizing the ones that God had sent (Romans 11:13; 1 Thes 2:15; 1. Noah 2. Moses 3. David 4. “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee..” Matt 23:29-39 5.

  • 14. Laodicea: The SEVENTH AgeMessenger – Wm. Branham aka Elijah the Prophet How will we recognize him? Among many Christians and Messianic believers, there is an expectation of one who will appear in the power and spirit of Elijah before the second coming of Yeshua the Messiah. 1. Isaiah 61:2 “acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance“; Luke 4:16-21; a scripture is split – 2000 years between 2. Malachi 3:1 / Isaiah 40:3 / John 1:19-13; Luke 1:17– John Baptist 3. Malachi 4:5 – Wm Branham aka Elijah 14

John the Baptist “Elias is come already, and they knew him not…”Matt 17:124. William Branham “I will send Elijah the prophet…” Mal 4:5-65. Elijah (in one of the two witnesses) “power to shut heaven, that it rainnot…” Rev 11:6 15

  • 17. Laodicea: The SEVENTH AgeThe Church Condition in the Last Days Short age: 1906AD to Present Frequent earthquakes – eventually destroyed “Peoples Rights” Rev 3:16 “thou art lukewarm…” Rev 3:17 “I am rich, and increased with goods…” Rev 3:15 “thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked…” 17
  • 18. Rev 3:17 “I am rich, and increased with goods…” 18
  • 19. Rev 3:14 ”Laodicea - Peoples Rights…” 19

  • 22. Rev 3:18 “anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, thatthou mayest see.…” 22
  • 23. Rev 1:13 & 2:1, Jesus is “in the midst” and“walks among” the 7 churches, by the lastage He has been kicked out of His ownchurch – replaced by creeds, dogma, etc.“In that day seven women will take hold ofone man…we will eat our own bread & wearour own clothes, but be called by yourname…” Isaiah 4:1; Rev 18:7 No room in the inn – Luke 2:7 Go outside camp, bear his reproach – Heb 13:13 Despised, rejected – Is 53:1-3 Rejected King – Mark 11:8-10; John 6:15 Why call me Lord, and do not the things I say? – Luke 6:46 Lord, Lord…depart, I never knew you – Matt 7:21-23 “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock.” 23
  • 24. The Breach between the Seven Church Ages andthe Seven SealsChapter Four and Five of Revelation is called “TheBreach” because they lay positioned betweenChapter Three and Chapter Six. They also appearto occur in Heaven, whereas Chapters Two andThree that deal with the Seven Church Ages, andChapter Six which is the events that transpire uponthe Earth after the Seals are opened. The Breach isalso a transition from a world order under grace, to aworld order under judgment and wrath. The very actof the Lamb of God leaving the mercy seat to retrievethe Sealed Book signifies a cessation of the oldorder under a dispensation of intercessory grace, to anew era of The Lion of Judah assuming his Kinglythrone to sit as ruler and judge. 24
  • 25. The Breach between the Seven Church Ages andthe Seven SealsThe Lamb‟s blood had been upon the mercy seat fornearly two thousand years, that blood was “the bloodof an everlasting covenant. (Hebrews 13:20).Everlasting is a long span of time, not time without endor eternal. The lamb‟s redemptive work concludesduring the Last Days, the ceremonial act of KinsmanRedeemer calls for Him to leave the throne of mercyto take the book out of the right hand of God. Oncethe bloody lamb leaves his intercessory work, the samethrone becomes a throne of judgment; there is nolonger any mercy, grace or power to wash away theGentiles sins - “and he which is filthy, let him be filthystill.” (Revelation 22:11) 25
  • 26. The Breach between the Seven Church Ages andthe Seven SealsWhen the Seventh Seal is broken, the mystery ofGod is finished – One part of this mystery revealswho was sealed during Christs mediation, and howeach sealed believer overcame in each of SevenChurch Ages. Another aspect of this finishingmystery is the restoration of the Word of God – alldoctrinal errors promulgated over the span of theGentile Church Ages will be corrected and taught.The results of the seventh seal will manifest to theChristian believers as an acceptance of the correctedWord of God and faith for the resurrection (TheRapture), in nominal church-goers as faith to endurethe Great Tribulation, and in unbelievers as hatredtowards Jesus and unwillingness to repent of theirsins. 26

Wedding supper of the Lamb (Rev 19) SEVENTHSEAL 30
  • 31. The Bride will not have to face the cataclysmic events the Bible prophesies forthe end times. We will be taken to heaven before the Tribulation-the timeperiod the Bible describes as ” . . . a time of trouble, Such as never was sincethere was a nation, Even to that time.” [Dan 12:1]During the first phase of His Second Coming, Jesus will come secretly to“catch away His Bride”-the Church. Three and one half years later, during the“Day of the Lord,” the second phase of His coming will take place. At that timeChrist will come visibly with all power and authority to establish His kingdom onearth (Matt 24:29).The saints will spend the intervening time in heaven before returning withChrist. Jesus will come for the saints during the first phase, and with the saintsin the second phase. Christ is coming to rapture the saints before theTribulation-but returning with them afterward, the time when He pours out Hiswrath in divine vengeance. SEVENTHSEAL 31
  • 32. „Like a Roman candle firework, the seventh seal is the beginning of the end for all things … the dispensation of grace, the blindness of the Jews towards Jesus Christ, the seven trumpets, the seven vials of the wrath of God – even time.‟32

  • 34. Revelation 19:7-9 Let us rejoice and be glad and give honor to him, for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of the saints. And he saith unto me, write, blessed are they which are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb.34
