30 Just a personal testimony before I pray for the sick out in the radio land. It was a few days ago I was setting up in a mountains where a great thing had taken place before fifteen or twenty brethren there, where the Angel of the Lord came so down, and great Light flying like a comet, bursting around through the mountains, and rocks flying for two hundred feet, or more, across the earth, cutting the top of the trees out. And I was standing right under It. And told them just a few moments before it happened, it would be there and what would happen; frankly, it was told the day before. And all these men running under trucks and everything, trying to get away, they didn't know what had taken place. And He spoke and said what would take place right immediately afterward.
UNVEILING OF GOD. JEFF. IN 64-0614M
35 And so we find even back as far as Job. Job knew that there was a God. He knew it. And there's not a--a--a human being in their right mind but what knows there's got to be Something somewhere. And now, Job wanted to talk to Him. And I want you to notice the form that God chose to talk to Job in. God was veiled when He talked to Job. He was veiled in a whirlwind, came down in a whirlwind. You believe that God still comes in a whirlwind to unveil Himself?
There's several setting here, a number, that was with us the other day when He came in a whirlwind, told us the day before, Brother Banks Wood, them, when He said, "Take up this rock; throw it up in the air, and say, 'THUS SAITH THE LORD. You will see it right away.'" And I picked up the rock up on top of the mountain, threw it up in the air, and the... 'Course, coming down, it started a whirlwind (See?), the suction of it.
You have to do something to cause something to follow it. Jesus took a piece of bread and broke it, then multiplied from that piece of bread. He took water, poured it into a pitcher. Elijah took salt, put it in a cruse; cut down a stick, throwed it on the water. It's something to symbolize. And picking up this rock and throwing it into the air, and coming down started the whirlwind.

157 Stand there and see a whirlwind come out of the sky. It blowed a mountain half in two, standing there where we was at; cut the top of trees off and things like that. And a blast of Word come out and shook there three times, said, "Watch it go to the west coast." Went right over there and shook down Alaska. And coming right down the west coast now. Just exactly.
Day before, I took a rock and throwed it up in the air, and said, "THUS SAITH THE LORD, The hour is here; judgments will start into the earth. Earthquakes and everything will be taking place. And all the west coast will be shook and so forth." Look how perfect, day by day, everything just exactly the way He said. How can we turn back, brethren? Let us keep our faith towards Him.
MAN RUNNING FROM PRESENCE. JEFF. IN 65-0217
81 Looking back there at some friends that was with me up there when the Angel of the Lord... These boys setting here, I believe they found the place where it happened up there. And just remember what the Lord said that day to Brother Wood when we was walking up the hill. And--and he was kinda weeping because of his wife being sick. And the Lord said, "Pick up that rock, and throw it up in the air, and say THUS SAITH THE LORD." And I did that. And Brother Wood is setting as a witness.
And I said, "Brother Wood, it won't be long till you're going to see something happen." And the next day when we were standing there, all of us together... And a bunch of the men standing right here tonight...
A young preacher was there, and he was a... I noticed... I just met him the night before; he was in our camp. He come up to be with us. And he said to me; he said, "Brother Branham, do you ever see visions out like this?"
I said, "Yes, sir. But I come out here to get away from it, to kinda rest a little bit." He said... "Well," I said, "of course He shows me things out here." And I said, "Just over the hill here where the Seven Angels appeared down in there."
He said, "Yeah, I understand." Said, "I was one of the sponsors on your meeting over in California."
I said, "Well, I'm certainly glad to know that."
And while standing there, just then I looked around and I seen kind of a heavy-set doctor looking into his eyes, and I heard him say, "You're going to lose that eye, because there's a allergy in there. And I've doctored it for two years, and you're going to lose that eye." I said," Reason you ask me that, because your doctor told you the other day you was going to lose that eye."
And he said, "That's right."
And he looked around like that, and I seen his mother take off one of her stockings and hold her foot out with little tumors hanging down between her toes, up-and-down her leg and said, "If you see Brother Branham, tell him to pray for this." And I said, "Your mother hand her--stuck her foot out like that and said she had--she's got little tumors all over her--her toes and like that, and said, 'Have Brother Branham pray.'"
He said, "Brother Branham, that's the truth."
And I looked back, and when I did, I seen him standing there looking at me like that with his eyes just as bright. I met him this fall; he had better eyes than anybody in the camp. The Lord had healed him and made him well.
88 While I was standing there the Lord said--showed me what was going to happen: "Judgment's fixing to strike the west coast." And He said, "Get over there beside that fireplace."
And I had a shovel in my hand, walked over there... Brother Roy Roberson, all of us know him here; he's not here tonight as I know of; he's in Arizona out there. He's the chairman of the trustees here. And I knowed him being a veteran. And something was going to happen. A real, pretty, still morning about ten o'clock in the morning, and the boys all around there, ten or twelve of us, letting down tents, and skinning out pigs, and things. So we, I walked around, said, "Roy, hide quick. Something is fixing to happen." I couldn't tell him no more. And just the time I got over there... And coming down from the heavens come the whirlwind of God and clapped like, shook the hill, run inside of that mountain, cut a streak plumb around it about five feet above my head, and cut all the tops of them trees off as the rocks went out, went up in the air and come down again with another big baptism, and struck across the mountain, and throwed the rocks out like that. Did it three times, then went up in the air.
And Brother Banks come over to me and, "Is that what you said yesterday?"
I said, "Yes, sir; that's exactly it." See? And then two days after that Alaska sunk almost up there. And up and down that west coast has been thunders and pushings and everything happening. And one of these days she's going to slide beneath the ocean. That's right. What is it? We're living in the hour of the coming of the Lord.
WORKS IS FAITH EXPRESSED. SHREVEPORT, LA 65-1126
59 Right beside a great canyon, eight or ten times higher than this building, just a box canyon; like a fire come down from the heavens, like a whirlwind, just a few feet above where I was standing, and ripped the rocks right out of the mountain, went out through and cut the tops of the mesquite trees off, for a hundred yards out. Everybody running, and trying to get under trucks and everything else. It went back up again and clapped like a great thunder, went back up in the skies again, and come down again, and done that three times. And when it was all over, they come over and asked, "What did it mean?"
I said, "I don't want to tell you, it was a judgment sign. In a few days a great earthquake's going to strike on the west. And it won't stop. California, Los Angeles will sink. It's going down. It'll slide right into the ocean." And two days after that, the Alaskan earthquake shook Alaska.
