On the surface it is a terminology that can be parroted by anyone, even without understanding.

Let's first place the Prophet's own words and then break it down by Spiritual Examination.

Now this messenger of Malachi 4 and Revelation 10:7 is going to do two things. One: According to Malachi 4 he will turn the hearts of the children to the fathers. Two: He will reveal the mysteries of the seven thunders in Revelation 10 which are the revelations contained in the seven seals. It will be these Divinely revealed `mystery-truths' that literally turn the hearts of the children to the Pentecostal fathers. Exactly so.

In looking closely at the statement without Revelation, it would seemingly be a contradiction of terms. The Pentecostal Fathers did not have the Revelation of the Mystery Truths, revealed in our age. Thus, how could the Greater Mystery Truths of our Message, not known or Revealed in Apostolic times, be used to LITERALLY take us BACK to the LESSER incomplete understanding they had?

If what was once delivered to the Saints, was/is sufficient for Brideship, why would we need this Message of Greater Understanding? If what they had perfected them, why would they need us to bring them to perfection. Instead it would be said in Scripture, we without them could not be made perfect.

Instead it is stated;

Now, that stone would not fit down there on that bottom foundation, neither will it fit on the second foundation or the third foundation. It'll only fit on the top foundation, when the entire building has become fitted to the stone. And Jesus cannot come until a church, a body of believers and the ministry that He once...?... will have to be the same as it was then to... And then, that brings... "Them without us is not made perfect," Paul said, Hebrews 11. "Without us they cannot be perfected." They must have this ministry to raise up the Lutheran, Wesleys, and all them down through their ages.

It is easily understandable, that our Messenger would, in order to Restore the *Doctrinal LOOSE ENDS* lost through the Church Ages, RE-ESTABLISH the order and truth of them. I would venture to say, that even before the Mysteries Message began in 1963, all that the Pentecostal Fathers taught Doctrinally was firmly Restored.

The *Faith of the Pentecostal Fathers* has a Deeper and far reaching meaning than just the Doctrinal Truths of their day, though of absolute necessity that is included.

To search Deeper into our thought, we will look into the HEART of the Gospel itself.

1 PETER 1:3 Blessed [be] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,
5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

The BASIC Premise of the Gospel is, That Jesus Christ died, was Buried, raised again and *IMPORTANTLY, WILL RETURN AGAIN.* That is the GOSPEL, or THE FAITH OF THE PENTECOSTAL FATHERS.

It was the Revelation FAITH of the Gospel, on and after the Day of Pentecost and throughout the Church Ages.

Notice the Perfect Order of verse 5 above. The Pentecostal Fathers were looking foreward by FAITH, (Revelation) to a future event at the time of the End, in which time, the Mystery (Message) of the plan of God for Salvation would be Revealed.

The fulfillment of that Promise, came to pass in our time, through the Ministry of Brother Branham.

Understandably the fulfillment is Greater than the Promise, believed by the Faith of the Fathers. The Greater,(Mysteries) Literally takes us back Scripturally, to the Faith Promise of the Pentecostal Fathers. This Message of Revealed Mystery Truths, is the Literal making known, or fullfilment of the Faith (partial Revelation), that was spoken of by all of the Apostles.

This Message is the vindication of the Fathers Faith, which Prophesied of this day. Because it is Written (prophesied ) in Scripture, it becomes the vindication also of the Message of this day. In essence this is that (FAITH) and that (FAITH) is this Message.

Thus is fulfilled the Scripture declaring *ONE FAITH,* ONE LORD, ONE BAPTISM.

When Peter stood up on the day of Pentecost, and referred to the Scriptural promise of Joel the Prophet, he could truly say, *THIS IS THAT!* He took the Believer back to the FAITH (Promised Word) Prophesied by Joel.

Those in our day who are the objects of Election, and recipients of the Revelation of this day, can point back to the foundation of the Gospel and its precious Promise for/of the Revealing of the Second Coming by this Message and declare, *THIS IS THAT!* The true Elect, have been Literally turned back by Divine Revelation, to the Faith Promise of the Pentecostal Fathers, that pointed to the Greater Event of this day.

The Faith of the Pentecostal Fathers is this Message and this Message is the Faith of the Pentecostal Fathers FULFILLED! They are ONE.
