In another link we have shown that Brother Branham's ministry was fullfilled in "three pulls" or phases. These are more fully explained at the following link: A Prophet Is Shown His Last Commission His ministry was already mapped out before it started. His public ministry would span just over 33 years.
When Brother Branham was commissioned by the Angel in 1946 he was given "two signs" which would represent the "First and Second Pull" of his ministry. The first sign was the "sign in the hand". The second sign was the "discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart". The Third was "the opening of the Word", the revealing of the mystery of the Seven Seals and Seven Thunders of Revelation chapters 5:1 - 10:7. The Angel that commissioned him in 1946 also guided him through the three different phases of the ministry.
In a Message entitled, "Christ, the Mystery of God revealed" (July 28, 1963), Brother Branham made reference to the END of the "second pull". This is what he said.....
Not knowing, (of course, being spiritual, you watch spiritual things), not knowing this, God knows it. But if you'll turn and look at the clock, it's on the dot, two o'clock, the end of the Second Pull. The Third Pull is at hand!
At the Name of Jesus bowing, Falling prostrate at His feet, King of kings in Heaven we'll crown Him, When our journey is complete.
Precious Name...(Second Pull has been made manifested!) Hope of earth and joy of Heaven; Precious Name, O how sweet! Hope of earth and joy of Heaven.
Did you notice the Spirit take the same song and picked it up an octave higher like that? The next Pull is at hand.
Throughout his ministry Brother Branham was very consious of the fact that 'he' was not in control. He learned obedience by the things which he suffered. Just prior to the End of the Second Pull the Angel told the prophet that he was "catering too much to the people with the signs, causing them to lean on the signpost". Those signs were ordained to attract the attention of the people to the Word (Third Pull) for Their day, crowned with the Opening of the Seven Seals and the Revelation of the Seven Thunders.
