What happen on Inauguration Day in the USA, was it the purple dress or the purple curtain? People are always complicating the obvious of what has already been made known. If we would just look into the WORD of God the answers can always be found when it comes to world events and Bible prophesies. Many times they are not completely clear, but they will be, when fulfilled. God is doing a marvelous thing and it is veiled in simplicity. 1 Cor 1:19 “For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise , and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”
William Branham (1909-1965) a prophet to this generation spoke by vision of these times. The sixth vision of seven in 1933 spoke of a great woman coming to power in the United States just before the destruction of this nation and the coming of the LORD. Many time he said it could be a woman president or great leader, and in one place he said she could be a woman vice president. However, almost every time he said it could be a church and many times predicting that it “would be” a church (Rome).
A prophet will have a vision and then speak what he sees, he will not always know the interpretation of the vision. It could be literal or representative of something else. The Old Testament has many examples of this.
Brother Branham as a prophet could only say what he saw. Notice the following quotes: “Now, I predicted and said, ‘I saw a great woman stand up, beautiful looking, dressed in real highly royals like PURPLE,’ and I got little parenthesis down here, ‘She was a great ruler in the United States, perhaps the Catholic church.’ A woman, some woman… I don’t know her to be the Catholic church. I don’t know. I can’t say. ONLY THING I SEEN, I SEEN THE WOMAN; that was all.”
Brother Branham also prophesied in the sermon “Conference”; “Listen THUS SAITH THE LORD. Repent. I predict three curtains. In the Name of the Lord, there’s one called the Iron Curtain, which will be Russia. Watch Red China. That’ll be the Bamboo Curtain. They’re horrible, but watch that Purple Curtain that’s rising in the United States and over the world, the Roman Empire, the cruelest of all of them.”
While preaching on the Pergamean Church Age, and referring to Revelation 17:4 Brother Branham said; “The beast was scarlet, but the woman was arrayed in purple. Now, have I not warned you the other day, there’s three curtains? I don’t know how long I’ll live, but remember this. As I’ve told you many years ago, ‘watch Russia.’ There’s three curtains, remember this. There is the iron curtain. There is the bamboo curtain (Red China and so on). And there’s the PURPLE CURTAIN, you watch that curtain, that’s the deceiver.”
In his sermon titled “The Restoration of the Bride Tree” (1962) Brother Branham again said as he did in many other places; “There is an iron curtain. There is a bamboo curtain. There is a PURPLE CURTAIN. Brother, don’t you fear none of the rest of them, but watch that purple curtain. She is setting right here on the throne, today, in this country. Remember, just like Ahab did, Jezebel behind him. The Bible calls the Catholic church ‘Jezebel; prostitute.’ And Ahab wasn’t no bad guy. I don’t say that Mr. Kennedy isn’t a nice man. I don’t know nothing about him. He’s a man. That’s all I know. He’s the President. I believe he’ll make a good President. It’s not him; it’s that system behind him. Wait till she gets wormed into the cabinet, and everywhere she can, then watch what happen. Look what it done in other nations. Look what it’s always done.”
UNQUOTE: I believe it is clear, when Brother Branham spoke of the sixth vision he saw the same woman that the Apostle John saw in a vision while on the Isle of Patmos; Rev 17:4 “And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: 5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.”
I ask you, is it a purple dress or a purple curtain we fear?
Jesus Christ the Word is the Bride of Christ’s message and understanding. We find our place of safety and salvation there! Luke 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
