The Entombment

The following was posted on the website.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I have never been more excited about Easter weekend than I am RIGHT NOW. The world is in chaos, a virus has plagued every nation, fear is painted on faces everywhere we look, but the Bride is looking upward today, saying, “Thank you Father, for you have prepared us for this hour, and we have no fear for our redemption is drawing nigh.”

Praise be the Name of the Lord! He has given us vindication after vindication that we are in His Perfect Will, and that He is Coming for us SOON. He has trained us for this hour, friends, through our Home Tape services, Home Prayer Meetings, and Home Easter Meetings as well.

For the past several years, we have announced an Easter Weekend Schedule to be done in our HOME CHURCHES, which unites the Bride as never before, and includes prayer times, tape services, and meditations on the Lord. It has become a weekend of what Easter should be all about, a weekend of CONSECRATION and HOLINESS unto the Lord; a weekend of shutting the entire world out of our lives, and inviting Christ to come into our homes, and into our hearts, worshiping Him all weekend, PRAISE THE LORD.

I believe this Easter will be the most special Easter we have ever had. The enemy thinks he has the upper hand by confining us to our homes and cutting off our fellowship, but God has already provided another way for us to come together from around the world to His Throne.

As in past years, I would like to encourage each household to join in on a true Communion with the Lord this Easter, devoting the whole weekend to worshiping Him. Let us shut out the world by turning off our phones and not be distracted with texts, social media, news, or the many things that keep our minds occupied, but just speak to Him, and He will speak back to us. I promise you, it will change your life, you will never be closer to Him.

I would like us to all unite this weekend on Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) for the following schedule.


Let us begin our Easter weekend at 9:00 A.M. then again at 12:00 P.M. by uniting in prayer and inviting the Lord to be with each of us on this very special weekend, and to fill our homes with His Holy Spirit as we dedicate ourselves to worshiping Him.

At the same time, I ask everyone to pray at—at nine o’clock at morning, twelve o’clock at day, three o’clock in the afternoon. And that’s the world around. And people get up at midnight in the night, in old countries, they keep that prayer chain at the same time. Literally, tens of thousands and thousands of thousands are praying at the same time. God’s bound to hear; you’re just—you’re just storming Heaven with prayer, you see, so He’s got to hear.

53-1201 - "God's Provided Way"

The healings, the Holy Ghost filling, and the re-consecration we will be receiving as the Bride around the world joins together at one time, in one accord, to pray with and for one another… what can and will take place?

Then let us rejoin together in prayer at 3:00 P.M. in commemoration of our Lord’s crucifixion. May our minds go back to that day over 2000 years ago, to Calvary, and see our Savior hanging on that cross and say:

"But He was bruised for my iniquity. The chastisement of my peace was upon Him. And with His stripes William Branham was healed." Oh, if we can just read our name into Scripture, and really mean it, it’s that what does it. Read our name into it, makes a receiving, pardoning, for when we realize that He was wounded for our transgression, He was bruised for our iniquity.

Then at 7:00 P.M. gather around His Throne once again to hear the Message: 57-0419 The Perfection


Saturday: 9:00 A.M., 12:00 P.M., and 3:00 P.M., let us once again all unite in prayer

Then Saturday evening at 7:00 P.M. we will all come together once again to hear the WORD: 57-0420 The Entombment. What a wonderful day this is going to be.


On that great and wonderful resurrection morning, let us rise like Brother Branham did at 5:00 A.M. and just thank the Lord for raising Jesus from the dead:

“Five o'clock this morning, my little friend with a red breast flew up at the window and woke me up. Seemed like his little heart would burst, saying, "He is risen.”

Hallelujah, He HAS risen and there is an empty tomb, and we will be risen with Him some glorious day.

At 9:00 A.M. let us sincerely join once again in our prayer chain, praying for each other and preparing ourselves to hear The Voice Of God.

At 9:30 A.M. we will come together to hear our Easter Message: 65-0418m It Is The Rising Of The Sun

At 12:00 P.M. we will once again unite in prayer, thanking Him for the WONDERFUL WEEKEND HE HAS GIVEN US WITH HIM AND WITH HIS BRIDE.

To my brothers and sister overseas, I know this schedule will be very difficult for you due to the time difference. I’d like to encourage you to do your prayer times according to your local time, at 9:00 A.M., 12:00 P.M., and 3:00 P.M. To unite with your own country in prayer, but please also set your alarms so you may join in at Jeffersonville, Indiana, times for prayer as well. The whole world will storm Heaven TOGETHER with prayer at these times, just as Brother Branham instructed us to do.

I also realize that playing the Friday and Saturday Messages at Jeffersonville time would be very difficult for you, as it would be very early in the morning for many of you, so please feel free to play the tapes at your local times. I would, however, like for us all to join together on Sunday at 9:30 A.M., Jeffersonville time, to hear our Sunday Message together.

I would also like to invite you and your children to be part of another very special activity this Easter. Many have asked if we can post the Creations Easter tutorials and quizzes for the whole family to enjoy together. We think you will love them as they are all based upon the WORD we will be hearing this weekend.

Click here to see the material you will need for the Creations projects. The projects themselves can be viewed here.

Click here for the Easter Weekend tape quizzes.

It is such an honor for me to invite you and your family to come together for a weekend of WORSHIP, PRAISE, and INSTRUCTIONS in the Word. Thank the Lord for the Hidden Manna He has provided for His Bride. Praise His wonderful Name.

May God richly bless you,

Bro. Joseph
