First and Second Pull.

Ohio River, 1933.

Acts 26:13-15,
13 At midday, O king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me.
14 And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.
15 And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest.

It was on June 11, 1933, as Brother Branham was baptizing in the Ohio river at the foot of Spring Street in Jeffersonville, that a strange Light, like a star, suddenly came whirling down and hung over his head. There were about four thousand people sitting on the bank watching, many of whom were witnesses of this unexplainable phenomenon. Some ran in fear; others fell in worship. Many pondered the meaning of this remarkable occurrence. Just as with Saul, a Voice spoke from the Light. These were the words, “As John the Baptist was sent to forerun the first coming of the Lord, your message will forerun His second coming...”

If people can believe that God revealed Himself to Paul in a pillar of fire, what hinders them from having faith to believe that God could, and did, do it again in the twentieth century? Yet even among those who were used of God to confirm the message given at the foot of Spring Street, through tongues and interpretation, there are those who will deny that Brother Branham was the forerunner with a Message before the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

I know of people in San Antonio, Texas, whom God used to repeat those words, “As John the Baptist was sent ...,” but they deny him today. They either have no confidence in what God told them in 1946, or they have advanced so far in their theology that they feel they can change the original prophecy. Either way they are wrong. If God sent this man with the spirit of Elijah to forerun His second coming and to correct those things that have gone off into tradition and strayed from the Word of God and if God kept His Word to this man every time he said, “Thus saith the Lord.” then we should also listen to his doctrine.

First Pull.

Pearry Green.

When I first saw Brother Branham, this was the phase of his ministry; the “pull,” that was being manifested. When people came before him, unless he could visibly see their ailment, like blindness, being crippled, or paralysis, he would take them by the hand, and, if they had sin in their life, he told them first of their sin. That is, if that sin were not already confessed and under the blood of Jesus Christ. He would warn them, “Confess your sins before you come.”

One demon he always called out was cigarette smoking - tobacco. He recognised at that time, before the American Medical Association and the Department of Health, Education, Welfare and Drugs knew, that cigarettes cause cancer. He could see the connection by the spirit of the thing, and denounced it back in the 1940’s. That was also before women really started smoking. Back then, you didn’t see many women smoking. You never saw an advertisement in a magazine of a woman smoking. But after the tobacco industry got all the men they could get, they started making it popular for the women to smoke, and now the cigar industry has even got them on cigars and pipes. They have encouraged the further denigration of the women by making it seem glamorous and something to be desired for them to drink as well as smoke. Now you never see an advertisement showing the wares of the liquor industry unless it has a woman in it.

Just as the women have deteriorated, so has the Church deteriorated. Women type the Church. There is no way a man can prevent it. It will be exactly as that angel told Brother Branham back in 1946. Just as the angel instructed Paul and it came to pass as Paul was told, so will it be with this angel’s message, because it came from God to a prophet of this generation.

Second Pull.

The second sign, or “pull,” was to be his knowing the secrets of the heart. He would be able to just talk to people and he would know their name and other facts about them. (Remember, the Word of God is sharper than a two-edged sword and a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.) People began to see this manifested in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s in Brother Branham’s ministry. Subsequent visions and occurrences in the last months of his life revealed to him the purpose of the first sign. It was to bring out and make manifest all the imitators. Sure enough, some came out with it in their left hand, others in their right hand, some with a tingling in their elbow, some with it up their spine, and some would feel it in their right ear.

It was all to show that there were Jannes and Jambres types even in this generation, for they did it for filthy lucre’s sake, for gain and out of no concern for the people, or the Word of God, or the way of holiness. They would pronounce everybody healed and bring a reproach on the Word of God. Jesus said, “I can do nothing except I am commanded by my Father.” People came to Brother Branham and said, “Pray for me; God has given you authority.” He answered, “Yes, I have the authority, but I do not have the commandment.” He never would do it until God showed him. He did nothing unless the Father showed him. Thank God for one who would stay with the Word.

When the Second Pull began, discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart, here came a new crop of evangelists, and they too could tell you the secrets of your heart and say, “Thus saith the Lord.” There isn’t space to tell it all, but a full understanding, according to the revelation of the Holy Spirit and the light of the Word of God, can be found on Brother Branham’s taped message Anointed ones at the end time. It is a genuine anointing of the Holy Ghost, but they are false vessels. You ask where that is in the Scriptures? Matthew 7 says that there will be those who say, “Lord, Lord, did we not cast out devils in your name and raise the dead and heal the sick?” But, Jesus answered them, “Depart from me, ye workers of iniquity, I never knew you.” People came who did signs and wonders, and if it were possible, they would deceive the very elect. Why? Because they had the signs, but they did not have the Word of God to bring to the body of the Bride.

Brother Branham had a vision where he was trying to lace a little baby’s shoe with a large rope and he couldn’t do it because of the rope being larger than the eyelet of the shoe. In the second part of this vision, he was catching fish and he began showing others how to catch fish. This was later interpreted to him to mean that when he came out with the sign in his hand he had tried to explain it to the people. The Spirit of the Lord spoke to him and said, “You can’t teach Pentecostal babies supernatural things.” This had been when he had tried to show other preachers how to do the same thing he was doing.

  The Scripture Saith...

As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him.

For who is God, save the LORD? and who is a rock, save our God?
