Cover Concept - First Look
I hope you enjoyed our latest YouTube video released on April 10th: "William Branham Did NOT Pretend to Speak in in Tongues". Viewer feedback has been a blessing and it's an honor to defend Jesus' Message and messenger.
Yesterday I received the first draft cover concept for my next book. What do you think?
The blue cover was my request since I love blue. My book designer chose the seal as the main image, which I'm pleased with.
This book is 840 pages so it will likely be separated into two books, hence the "Book 1" on the cover.
It's exciting to see the book take shape and the tentative release date is still June 15th, 2021.
My inspiration for this book came from Brother Branham's sermon, Is This The Sign of The End, Sir? The prophet taught the 7th Angel of Revelation 10:7 was to finish all the mysteries of God:
But it is the seventh angel that had this type of Message. What was it? Notice his type of Message, "Finishing all the mysteries of God, that are written in the Book." The seventh angel is winding up all the mysteries that's laying loose-ended, all out through these organizations and denominations. The seventh angel gathers them up, and finishes the entire mystery. That's what the Bible said, "Finishes the mystery of the written Book."
Now let's note a few of these mysteries, and if you want to write them down. First, I'll take what Scofield says here, in Matthew 13. If you'd like to type some of them down, if you haven't got a Scofield Bible. You might read what he thinks some of the mysteries are. Now, in the 11th verse.
I found Scofield's list of mysteries that Brother Branham read. This statement moved me to go search the Bible and I found 12 doctrines labeled as "mysteries" in the New Testament and each has a chapter in the upcoming book:
Chapter 1: The mystery of the Godhead (Colossians 2:2)
Chapter 2: The mystery of Israel’s spiritual blindness (Romans 11:25)
Chapter 3: The mystery of the New Testament church composed of both Jew and Gentile (Ephesians 3:1-11)
Chapter 4: The mystery of the New Testament church as the bride of Christ (Ephesians 5:32)
Chapter 5: The mystery of godliness restored to man (1 Timothy 3:16)
Chapter 6: The mystery of Christ in you (Colossians 1:27)
Chapter 7: The mystery of the seven stars and seven golden candlesticks (Revelation 1:20)
Chapter 8: The mystery of the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 13:11)
Chapter 9: The mystery of Babylon (Revelation 17:5)
Chapter 10: The mystery of iniquity (2 Thessalonians 2:7)
Chapter 11: The mystery of God’s will (Ephesians 1:9)
Chapter 12: The mystery of the rapture (1 Corinthians 15:51)
Indeed, Jesus Christ revealed these 12 mysteries to the 7th Angel, who was Brother William Branham. I never dreamed this book would take 26 months to write, but it went quickly. God even gave me extra time to write it due to the coronavirus.
Lord willing, I'll write much more about the 12 New Testament Mysteries in the coming months, but for now, we rejoice that the secret things belong to us and our children:
The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law. Deuteronomy 29:29
Let us rejoice in God's kindness to reveal His truths to us and our children!
