Remember the Good Friday earthquake in Alaska that shook the whole world?  If you were here in March of 1964 you do!  This was prophesied by William Branham (1909-1965) a few days before it took place.

“The very next day, standing there, a whirlwind came down and blasted the mountains out. Rocks cut the top of the trees off, about three or four feet above my head. Made three big blasts, and the brothers come running over. There was about fifteen man standing there, preachers and everything else. ‘What was it?’ He said, ‘What was it?’

I said, ‘Judgment is striking the West Coast.’ About two days after that, the earthquake almost sunk Alaska.”  (WMB – What is the Attraction on the mountain, Jeffersonville IN. July 25, 1965)

He also believed this to be the beginning of Judgment which would bring the soon coming of the LORD Jesus Christ to take His church to heaven in the resurrection of the saints and the Rapture of the living saints.  He also prophesied of the ultimate destruction of sinful Hollywood and Los Angeles, even before science said there would be a great earthquake that would one day hit California.

Where are we at?  These are just signs of the end (Mark 13:8 “…there shall be earthquakes in divers places”).  We just had another earthquake in Alaska, Friday, November 30, 2018. How easily people forget.  Since Friday’s 7.0-magnitude tremor, there have been 190 earthquakes hit parts of Alaska, one day later.  Perhaps many in those areas live prepared for the big one to come, but do we live for Jesus that is just as sure to come?  He will come in greatness of the “Blessed Hope” to those that are ready!  However, He will come in judgment to the unprepared!

The following quotes come from sermons preached by William Branham (1909-1965).


What is left? Nothing except Hebrews 12:26. “Whose voice then shook the earth: but now He hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.” Once more God will shake the earth and with it shake everything loose that can be shaken. Then He will renovate it. Just last March, 1964, that Good Friday earthquake of Alaska shook the whole world though it did not unbalance it. But God was warning by a world tremor what He will soon do on a greater scale. He is going to blast and rock this sin-cursed world, my brother, my sister, and there is only one place that can stand that shock, and that is in the fold of the Lord Jesus. And I would beseech you while God’s mercy is still available to you, that you give your whole life, unreservedly to Jesus Christ, Who as the faithful Shepherd will save you and care for you and present you faultless in glory with exceeding great joy.


And now we’ve enjoyed about a fifteen-year revival, which according to history is longer than any revival has ever lasted, to my knowing. Usually, a revival lasts about three years, then it gets scattered. But believing that this is one of the last great revivals that the world will receive, and it’s come in the last age, the Laodicean age, at the end of the Pentecostal dispensation. And I believe the church now is going out into its lukewarmness, as the Bible predicted. And we’re seeing just the catching of the last part, when we see things happening like has been happening in the world, in the last few days.

For instance, the great earthquake in Alaska. Never has been an earthquake like that, in all the world. Did you notice? It come on Good Friday. You know, the last time the world was shaken was on Good Friday, too, when our Master died, and it shook the whole world. And remember, it might be the sign of Him returning. He said, that, “There’d be earthquakes in divers places.” Today we got another one in California, and they’re just appearing everywhere, light earthquakes. We notice, even the Capitol building has moved out of its place, and moved back. And–and down here in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, there’s a swimming pool there, dashed the waters out, from plumb from Alaska. Over in Switzerland, Sweden, and through there, shook buildings and things, around the world.

I believe that it’s trying to open our eyes, to see the hour that we’re living. I’m here in godly fear, that, it may be sooner than we think, of His appearing.

And brother and sister, even to the young folks, let’s put all the sincerity we can. This might be the last revival we’ll ever attend, and we may not get through this one, until His Coming. I’m looking for Him today. If He isn’t here today, I’ll be looking for Him tomorrow, if I’m here. And I been looking for Him now, since I heard about Him returning, and that’s been thirty-three years ago when I gave my heart to Him. I been behind the pulpit, thirty-three years, try and proclaim His unsearchable riches of His glory. And I trust that God will make Hisself so known among us, that every unbeliever will be saved, and all the sick will be healed, and the saints of the Lord, His believing children, will be lifted up in the–in the Spirit.


A few days ago, down in Brother Tony’s store, I was listening to a man there that said… When this earthquake taken place in Alaska, he was fishing down in what we call Stony Point, at Mexico. And he said, “The birds wouldn’t feed, and the fish wouldn’t feed. There was something wrong. And, all at once, the earthquake broke loose.”

And the other day, when that one happened over in India, or wherever it was, he said he was fishing again. He thought, “Well, it’s strange. Those fish feed about this time. There is not a roll in the water, nowhere. The water is just as quiet, perfect time for the fish to feed, but they didn’t feed. And all the birds that’s usually out there, the gulls, picking up these fish and things, was all walking around on the bank, huddling one against another. In a few moments, the sea moss from the bottom begin to come up like that, an earthquake had happened across the other side of the earth.” See, them fish knowed there was something wrong, something was fixing to happen. Those birds knew the same.

Surely, if God gives a fish and a bird discernment, how much more should He give His–His children! We know that we’re at the end time, and judgment is waiting, so let’s be real reverent. Flee to God with all your heart! “O Capernaum, thou who art exalted into heaven, will be brought down into hell,” and today she lays beneath the bed of the waters. Just remember, and pray.


The very next day, standing there, a whirlwind came down and blasted the mountains out. Rocks cut the top of the trees off, about three or four feet above my head. Made three big blasts, and the brothers come running over. There was about fifteen man standing there, preachers and everything else. “What was it?” He said, “What was it?”

I said, “Judgment is striking the West Coast.”

About two days after that, the earthquake almost sunk Alaska. What is this Light up on Sunset Mountain in the Coronado Forest of Arizona? What is this strange thing that happened up there, that the people has been driving east from west, picking up the rocks that laid around there where It struck? And every one of them, every one rock, has three corners on it, that It tore off. (The three are One.) They’re laying on desks, on paperweights, across the nation. What is this strange thing upon Sunset Mountain in the Coronado Forest?


And everything has been said, oh, even to the destruction of California, coming up now, and all these other things. And how I told them how many days it would be, how it would be where this big earthquake happened in Alaska, and that would be the beginning of the sign of time, and what would take place. And just word by word, what It said, it’s never failed one time. You’ve never seen It fail. And It can’t fail, because It’s God’s Words. “And Heaven and earth will pass away, but It can’t fail.” That’s right.


Right beside a great canyon, eight or ten times higher than this building, it’s 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. She’ll slide right into the ocean.” And two days after that, the Alaskan earthquake shook Alaska.

And then, the last meeting I had in California, while speaking, and didn’t know nothing happened till I got on the street, It told California, said–said, “Capernaum, Capernaum, the city that’s called by the name of the angels,” (that’s Los Angeles) “you’ve exalted yourself into heaven, but you’ll be brought down into hell. For if the mighty works had been done in Sodom that’s been done in you, it would have been standing till this day.”


We can’t stay here much longer; you see that. We’re–we’re at the end time. All that believe that, say, “Amen.” [Congregation says, “Amen!”–Ed.] We’re… There’s nothing left. Everything is gone. The churches is headed to the Ecumenical council. The world, it…

Look here! Do you know what the Lord says about Los Angeles and these places here? “She’s gone!” You remember what I told you, about two years ago, how that earthquake would come in Canada up here, Alaska? I also tell you that “Hollywood and Los Angeles is sliding into the ocean. California, you’re doomed! Not only California; but you, world, you’re doomed! Church, unless you get right with God, you’re doomed!” THUS SAITH THE HOLY SPIRIT!  Have you ever heard me use that Name unless it come to pass? Ask you! You’ve known me twenty years. Did I ever tell you anything in the Name of the Lord but what come to pass? If everything I’ve ever told you would happen, happened, say “Amen.” [Congregation says, “Amen!”–Ed.] See? I tell you, now is the hour, you better be getting right, all of us.
