A Recent Vision About WIlliam Branham
November 20, 2008
My dear brothers and sisters:
God bless you and fill you with peace in spite of your circumstances!
Times have changed for sure! Perilous times have come.
I wrote this in the mountains outside of Asheville, N.C. where I was visiting my father who was in the hospital at this time. He is doing a whole lot better. He has finally been released to go home. He is almost 100%. I want to thank everyone for their prayers and intercession while he was in the hospital. It was truly a miracle from God that he is back to his old self.
The leaves had all changed and it is a breathtaking view, for sure! It seems so surreal, in contrast to all the upheavals going on throughout the earth. This is just the beginning. Far more shakings are coming.
I have been having some amazing prophetic experiences. I don't know what else to call them. They are like visions but I can function in both worlds, so to speak. I used to have these only seldom, but now they seem to come more and more often, especially since we have entered into the New Year on the Jewish calendar.
I am released to this one with you, so here goes:
Fishing With William Branham
In late August, we were driving my daughter, Rebekah, up to start her Freshman year of college. It was about a six hour drive from our home to the San Fransisco/Oakland area north of us. About halfway up on the highway, the Holy Spirit came upon me like Ezekiel talks about as "the hand of the Lord". I have learned from experience that this was important, so I waited on the Lord. I felt like a heavy weight of God's hand was on my whole body. I was encouraging my daughter about the coming year and went over into the spirit of prophecy. For the next half an hour, I prophecied over her and a cloud of glory filled our car. Then, suddenly, right in the middle of this, I found myself in a small fishing boat in the middle of the most beautiful mountain lake that I had ever seen! It looked like I was up in the Swiss Alps, with huge mountain peaks surrounding us covered with snow. It was so breathtaking, I just sat in amazement. It seemed like everything was in super hi definition. It was perfect! I just sat in astonishment and looked around. I was still aware that we were driving, but this was like being "inside" of an Imax movie. I new that this must be a part of heaven. Suddenly, I heard a voice that interrupted my reverie,
"Hey Maury, you want to catch some fish?"
I turned to see where the voice was coming from, and saw a funny looking man with a hat on that was covered with fishing lures that were stuck in it all around. He looked so happy sitting in the boat next to me as he cast his line way out into the lake.
He said, "This is my favorite lake for fishing. I always catch the big ones out here." Then he reached down and found a rod a reel and gave it to me. "I wanted to invite you to go with me today. Cast it out! Maybe you'll catch a big one too."
I said, "Ok. Thank you. Who are you?" I cast out my line and was amazed out how it went right where I wanted it to go without even trying.
"My name is Billy. Billy Branham." I said, "you are?! Do you mean William Branham?"
He said, "Yep." Then his rod suddenly bent violently forward as a fish hit his line. "Allrighteeeeeee!!!!!!!!! I think I got me a BIG one this time!!!!!" He began to fight that fish as he reeled it in. He seemed to be so delighted that I just stared at him as he pulled a huge bass out of the lake and it flopped in the boat.
"I got to send ya back, big fisheeeee!!!", he cried. Then he looked at me and said, "Maureee, I don't like to kill the fisheees, even though I could eat them. I just love to catch them, though." I could hear that he had a little southern accent. It was like watching a kid having the time of his life.
Then he said, "The Lord wanted me to give you a message. It's time!!! It's time for the fullness of my message to come forth. Maury, you're more than just a fiddle player. You have been ordained to help me carry and complete my message."
I said, "What message?"
He said, "The message that God gave to me. You know, not everything I said and taught was right. But, by God's grace, there was entrusted to me a message concerning the times that you are now coming into in the earth. There's a great revival, coming, don't you know? They were trying to turn the worship to me, and God wouldn't allow it, so I had to go home. But there are 25 of my sermons that contain my MESSAGE." When he said that last word, he seemed to shout it so loud that it echoed back and forth between the mountains on each side of the lake.
Then he cast laughed really heartily, and cast his line out again. I said, "Brother Branham -" and he shouted back, "My name is BILLLEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" There was that echo again, even louder this time. "Call me BILLY". I replied rather sheepishly, "Ok. Billy..."
"Now, I want you, Maury, to listen to those 25 tapes of mine and learn my message. Will ya do that?!!" He said it kind of rough, like I didn't have to if I didn't want to. But I knew it was right, so I said, "Yes, Billy. What are they and where are they?" Then he said, "AW! That's easy, just talk to Stevey. He knows. He'll give them too you." Then he suddenly turned and looked right at me so intensely and said, "It's time for the coming of Elijah to the earth. But it isn't just one man....There are going to be a thousand of them at first, and then 12,000 for the Grand Finale. All heaven is waiting for the GRAND FINALEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It will began after the Jewish New Year, just two weeks from now. Will you take this mantle? I said, "Yes, sir...if it is God's will."
"Son, you've drank the cup of suffering for the past seven years. You have qualified before the Almighty. Now you shall see that God is a miracle working God in the earth. He's not DEAD....He's ALLLLLLLIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVVVVVVVVVVVVEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" The whole mountain lake seemed to just reverberate for several minutes with that last shout.
Then the vision ended. It was now dark and we arrived at Rebekah's dorm room and moved her in shortly thereafter.
I wondered who this person named "Stevie" was. Then, I remembered I had just played my violin and ministered in a conference in Lancaster, CA. earlier that month. I had met a brother named Steven Shelley (www.revival.org). He had told me about his long association with brother William Branham through his Pentacostal family growing up. So, after we got back home, I phoned Pastor Steven Shelley in a small town in Alabama and told him what happened to me. He immediately confirmed that he was called "Stevie" growing up and said that he was just then preparing a CD with 19 of "brother Branham's" messages that he had left behind. Before brother Branham died, he had told his son that these contained, "My message". Then Pastor Shelley said, "But I have always felt that there were several more...perhaps 25. Thank you for confirming this."
He felt that it was a genuine vision, because he has studied William Branham's ministry and message for many years. I don't know hardly anything about him. I still haven't gotten the CD yet, but I am planning to listen to it when I return to California next week if it has arrived in the mail.
I'll be back to tell you of some other revelations that are coming now. They are coming faster and faster, so I thought I would just blog them so you can receive them, Beloved. God is preparing His Bride for the marriage supper to come. Are you ready and waiting for Messiah's coming?
I am very troubled about the elections. God gave the people of America the king that they desired, but the covering of protection has been breached...great shakings and judgments are about to hit America. There is coming a war in the Middle East that will change many things that we take for granted now. Get Ready and keep your eyes on Yeshua our Messiah!!!
God bless you! All my love to you, beloved of the Lord!
