The End Of Mercy

From BelieveTheSign

When does the Bible teach mercy will end?

What William Branham taught

William Branham taught that God's mercy ended when the Seals were opened:

  • "How the Lamb ceases to be a mediator when the Seals are opened." (First Seal)
  • "No mercy if you reject this: “If a man heard the jubilee call, and refused to go free, he was taken to the post and an awl marked his ear. Ear is where you hear…then if he hears IT, and refuses to accept his freedom, then he has to serve his denominational master the rest of his life.” (Fourth Seal).
  • "Those who laughed at the word asked for rocks to fall on their heads. “And when you spurn mercy, there is nothing left judgment.”" (Sixth Seal)
  • “He arrives; and a Seal opened, revealed; a trumpet sound, war declared, and away they go. And then the messenger dies. He seals away this group; they’re put in. And a plague falls on those who rejected It. See?” (Sixth Seal)

What the Bible teaches

God is merciful:

For just as you were at one time disobedient to God but now have received mercy because of their disobedience, so they too have now been disobedient in order that by the mercy shown to you they also may now receive mercy.  For God has consigned all to disobedience, that he may have mercy on all.[1]
The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end...[2]
So speak and so act as those who are to be judged under the law of liberty. 13 For judgment is without mercy to one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.[3]

Judgement on all only comes on the day of judgement:

But by the same word the heavens and earth that now exist are stored up for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.[4]
By this is love perfected with us, so that we may have confidence for the day of judgment, because as he is so also are we in this world. 18 There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.[5]
And the angels who did not stay within their own position of authority, but left their proper dwelling, he has kept in eternal chains under gloomy darkness until the judgment of the great day.[6]
Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of his holy ones, 15 to execute judgment on all and to convict all the ungodly of all their deeds of ungodliness that they have committed in such an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things that ungodly sinners have spoken against him.[7]

Your Choice

If you believe that the Seals were opened in 1963 to William Branham: welcome to the judgment. If you were born after 1963 and you believe this doctrine, then there never was a time Jesus sat as mediator for you.

Or, you can spurn William Branham's teachings, and accept Jesus Christ as your savior and mediator. William Branham was wrong, and you can find unending mercy today.
