23. Discernment fulfills Luke 17:30 “..the Son of man is revealed

[Sign of Messiah is the last sign before rapture and judgment.]

LUKE 17:24-30

For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day.

But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation.

And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.

They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.

Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;

But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.

Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

E-11 (…) And as you see Him working... If He tells some person here on the platform the things of their life, remember, He knows everything that's in your heart. Do you believe that? He know your thoughts before you think them. That's right. He knows all things.

And He's here tonight just as He was in the days when He stood by Sarah there, and was perceiving her thoughts. Does He...?... ? Don't... When He brought Nathanael to the Son of Man, "I knew you before Philip called you. When you was under the tree, I knew you." Told the woman at the well her sins.


E-74 The Father said, "Go up there." That's all He knowed to do.

Father told me to come down here. That's all I knowed to do. Here's the woman. I don't know nothing about her. But what am I doing? Contacting her spirit, same thing He did.

Now, Jesus said to the woman, "Go, get your husband." He found her trouble. Was that right. Said, "Go, get your husband."

She said, "I don't have any husband."

He said, "That's right. You got five." What did that Jew said when He told him of where he was.

He said, "This is the sign of a Messiah. You're the Christ, the King of Israel."

Watch this Samaritan now. What you going to say? Why, she said, "Sir, I perceive that You're a prophet." She said, "I know that when Messiah... We know (the Samaritans)--we know that when the Messiah cometh, He will tell us these things. But Who are You?" He said, "I'm He that speaks to you."

What was that the sign of? Newcomers? Messiah. Is that right? It was the sign of the Messiah to the Jew. It was the sign of the Messiah to the Samaritans. The same thing to the Gentile, when Peter went up. Jesus was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel.

Now, if the Messiah is not in the grave, but alive today in His Church, it's still the sign of the Messiah. Is that right?

E-24 Jesus said, "When the Son of man is revealed from heaven." Let me close by saying this: that the Son of man is now being revealed from heaven.

"Will it come after while, Brother Branham?"

It is now. And I hope I won't have to make this so personal of this own meeting, but that your spirit within you that's give you by God, can read what I'm talking about. The Son of man has already come from glory and is revealing Himself for the past few years to His Church in mercy, showing them His great Presence, doing the same things that He did when He was here on earth, revealing Himself like He did to Abraham. Before the destruction, He has come now in mercy, revealing Himself to the Church. It's being laughed at and scoffed at. The next time He reveals Hisself, it'll be in judgment on the world and the nations that's forgot God and sinned their way of grace--their day of grace, rather, away. Because they have forgotten God. And they're doing the same thing that they did to the Angel of Lord back there, mocking and making fun of it. But He's here now in mercy.


E-21 Notice, the Angel that brought fire, was the One Who performed that miracle. And we all know that the world's going to be destroyed the next time by fire. And the Angel that was sent to Sodom and Gomorrah... Look what Jesus said. Oh, it just thrills my soul to get to that. "As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be at the coming of the Son of man." What did the Angel do? He had the Spirit of discernment, and He said, "As is was then, so will it be when the Son of man is being revealed from heaven." Do you see it? Just think, that in our midst now, stands that same Angel of God, which is none other but the Lord Jesus Christ in the form of the Holy Ghost. It's in our midst. And that day... And He was God, and that was His Message, just before the destruction came.


E-28 Hurry, hurry and escape. That may be your last opportunity. And remember, we see the missiles setting. We hear of them. We look at in the paper. The whole world's a trembling. Everything that God said's coming to pass. Then what about it? "In the day that the Son of man shall reveal Himself from heaven..." What is the Son of man being revealed? "Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever."

Look at it at the 21st verse or the 30th verse, it is.

Even thus shall it be in the days when the Son of man is revealed from heaven.


E-36 And He never did that one time to a Gentile. Why? He left it to this day. That's what He said here, "In the days when the Son of man shall reveal Himself from heaven..." He's revealing Himself now to the church for mercy. The next time He reveals Hisself is in destruction to those who's rejected the Message. God be merciful for--to us, while we pray, just a moment.


E-44 (…) Remember, that sign of discernment is the last message to the Gentile church. Look, so that you'll know. Jesus said, "As it was in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah, so will it be in the coming of the Son of man.


E-61 Oh, I hope you're not so numb by the things of the world that you don't pick that up. Don't you see the nature of the same Angel just before the coming of the Lord? Jesus said, "As it was in the days of Sodom, so shall it be in the coming of the Son of man." Surely, you're not spiritual dead enough not to recognize that: the discernment... Just at the end of time of the Jews, God sent that Spirit. Just at the end of time of the Samaritans, He sent that Spirit. Just at the end, before judgment, when He's going to burn the world up, Sodom and Gomorrah, He sent that Angel as a Witness. And bombs are hanging yonder ready to blow this world into bits in one minute's time.

There's Billy Graham and them evangelists out yonder pushing that Sodom and Gomorrah; and the Angel of the Lord's with the elected Church, the called out Group, showing signs and wonders of discernment. So shall it be in the coming of the Son of man.

165 What does the Word of God... See, if these ministers don't say this. The Bible said in Hebrews, New Testament, the 4th chapter

"The Word of God is sharper than a two-edged sword, cutting asunder even the marrow of the bone, and a Discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." Is that right brethren? See? What is it? It's the Word 'lotted for this day, the Word 'lotted for this day, fulfilling this promise, when the Son of man shall be revealed, the days of Sodom, all these other things promised. Here it is. It's the Word of God being revealed, 'cause it's the Word Itself discerning the thoughts that's in the heart. See, it's exactly right.

222 And the Son of man is revealing Himself in the same power that He was (not down through the church age, through justification, sanctification, all these things here), but the Son of man. Who is the Son of man? The Word. And the Word is quicker than, powerful than a two-edged sword, and discerns the thoughts that's in the heart. What did He have to do? He has to prove that Word. What will He do? Notice of it when we see it happening, look at It in the same form that He was here in the beginning, the Pillar of Fire (My.), proving that He's Hebrews 13:8, said, "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever." What was it? Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, that was Christ that was in the wilderness with Moses. How many knows the Bible said that? Yesterday. That was Christ when Paul was speaking here today (You believe that?) in the New Testament. Then the Son of man, the same Christ, in the last day. See? All right.

Notice also John 14:12, He said, "The works that I do shall you do." All these other Scriptures, what does He do? He's here now proving (not Luther's age, not Wesley age, not Pentecostal age, not Baptist age, not Presbyterian age; we've went right down through it and proved it by history in the Bible; but what?) the age of the Son of man being revealed to bring these things in to fulfill the Word when all must be fulfilled. See? We see it, and it's true.

And, think, by the same methods He did in the first place, is not only confirmed among us, but it's confirmed by science. They have to admit it's right. George J. Lacy, the head of the FBI, for fingerprint and documents, said, "The Light struck the lens. I called it psychology myself," but said, "Mr. Branham, this camera won't take psychology. It's there."

What is it? A testimony, that long years ago when that Pillar of Fire was standing there in that bush like a whirlwind, speaking, He said, "Don't you never smoke or drink, there's a work for you to do when you get older."

The people said, "That boy's gone out of his mind." Mother wanted to call a doctor, I was nervous.

But what was it? He settled right down here at the bottom of that river there, at the Ohio River, and said, "As John the Baptist was sent to get a people ready for the Word to be made manifest, so will your message."

How Doctor Davis and them called me out of my mind, wanted to turn me out of the church, because I'd disagreed with him on women preachers and all those things that was unscriptural. He said, "And you say you're going to preach and cause a revival to strike the world?"

I said, "Not me, but He said so."

He said, "Billy, you had a nightmare."

I said, "I'll give up my card right now, I'm no more of you."

He said it; I believe it; and He's proved it. That's the good part; He's proved It, proved His Word by the Word, for He is the Word. See? And the Word does what? Knows the secret of the heart. Is that right? All right, proves it in Hebrews 13:8.


186 When we see the Holy Spirit come into the church, begin to discern the thoughts of the hearts, doing these great signs, and return of the Spirit back in the evening time when the Lights are shining, we see Him come and do the very same thing He did there at Sodom before it burnt down; see that Angel with His back turned, say, "Why did Sarah laugh?" behind Him. Jesus said, "As it was in the days of Sodom, so shall it be at the coming of the Son of man." What is it? It's the sounding forth of the coming of the Lord Jesus.

"Behold, I'll send you Elijah the prophet before that great and terrible day shall destroy the world. He'll restore the hearts of the children back to the original faith back to the Gospel, back to the power of God, back to the real Holy Spirit, back to Christ again, before that great day comes." We hear the trumpet sounding. Oh, my. What is it?
