Just as God revealed to Daniel those things which would take place from then until the end of time, God also showed Brother Branham seven things which would happen before the end. Five of the seven things have already happened. Brother Branham referred to these in several sermons, but had the most complete accounts in "Hybrid Religion" [also titled, "Condemnation by Representation"] and in "The Seventieth Week Of Daniel."
"Hybrid Religion" ["Condemnation by Representation"], November 13, 1960
"The Seventieth Week Of Daniel," August 6, 1961
In the vision Brother Branham saw some dreadful things take place. After telling them, some people were so shocked they wanted to throw Brother Branham out of the hall for saying such things; others wanted to throw him in jail or lock him up. Remember, we are looking back at history on five of these prophecies which have been fulfilled. Public opinion of Mussolini was not bad at the time of the vision, and for some it still is not. People at that time could not believe the newly elected President, Franklin Roosevelt, would help lead the world into a world war. So when Brother Branham first told this vision, these events were shocking to the people who heard them.
The following is the entire text of this vision from the sermon, "Hybrid Religion." The items inside quotation marks are what Brother Branham read. You can hear this in his voice as you listen to the sermon. While he is reading the vision, the items in parenthesis are the comments he is making. After he is finished reading, he makes more comments and repeats another prophecy concerning 1956 and one concerning a President who would be a crew cut, playboy, beatnik-type, lady’s man.

From the sermon Hybrid Religion:
I’d like to read something to you.
“1932:” (Listen to this. As I was on my way— Or—) “As I was getting ready to go on my way to church this morning, it came to pass that I fell into a vision. Our services is being held on Meigs Avenue at the old orphans’ home, where Charlie Kern lives in part of the building.” (He lives just across the street now, you know.)
“And it came to pass that while I was in this vision I seen some dreadful things take place. I speak this in the name of the Lord.”
“The President which now is, President Franklin D. Roosevelt—” (Now remember this is 28 years ago.) “—will cause the whole world to go to war.”
“And the new dictator of Italy, Mussolini, shall make his first invasion towards Ethiopia. And he will take Ethiopia, but that’ll be his last. He shall come to his end. We will be in war with Germany. Watch Russia.” (Now, that’s—) “Communism, Nazism, and Fascism. Watch Russia. But that is not the main one to watch.”
“It shall also—has been an evil thing done in this country; they have permitted women to vote. This is a woman’s nation, and she will pollute this nation as Eve did Eden.” (Now, you see why I’m hammering the way I do. I got ‘thus saith the Lord.’) “In her voting she will elect the wrong person.”
“The Americans will take a great beating at a place that Germany will build, which will be a great wall built of concrete.” (The Maginot Line [Siegfried Line], 11 years before it was ever built.) “But finally they will be victors.”
“Then when these women help elect the wrong person, then I seen a great woman rise up in the United States, well-dressed and beautiful, but cruel in heart. She will either guide or lead this nation to ruination.” (I’ve got in parenthesis: “Perhaps Catholic church.”)
“Also, science will progress, especially in the mechanical world. Automobiles will continue to get like egg shape. Finally they will build one that won’t need a steering wheel.” (They’ve got it now.) “It will be controlled by some other power.”
“Then I seen the United States as one smoldering, burnt-over place. It will be near the end.”
(Then I’ve got in parenthesis: “I predict that this will take place.” Now, remember, the Lord ne— That’s what the Lord showed, but— “I predict this will take place before 1977. Upon this prediction, I base because of the onrushing slaught that’s coming now.” —How fast that it was moving, how long it’ll take till this nation meets its place.)
Now, look what happened now, in— President Franklin D. Roosevelt took America to England’s tea party. That’s right. Germany never picked on us; we picked on them— throwed the whole world into a war, to cause a world war.
The Germans built the Maginot Line [Siegfried Line], which there, any veteran here knows what she took there at the Maginot Line.
Women, given the right to vote, elected President-elect Kennedy—the woman’s vote, the wrong man, which will finally be to full control of the Catholic church in the United States; then the bomb comes that explodes her.
There’s seven things predicted, and five of them has already happened. So you can judge yourself how far away we are. We’re near the end. If them five things happened, these other two things are bound to happen. It’s just got to happen.
I do not think that Mr. Kennedy will have much effect now, because he’ll make a wonderful President in order to bring in the others to get a scene set just like they have in England, like they did Mexico, like they did everywhere else, like that. And the American people, so unstable, not spiritually; they’re smart, but too smart for their own good. Intelligence swings backward sometime and backfires. So they— I’m preaching on that this morning, in a little bit.
So we find out we’re right on the verge— The reason I said this, that’s the reason I pressed that the other day so hard the way I did, but it was that that did it. That’s right. Women’s vote that put—
Did you notice the rallies on the television? Nixon to be pretty near all men. All of them wanted to kiss Kennedy (the women), jumping astraddle the cars and everything like that, jumping up and down.
And now, let me bring something else. I haven’t got it written here, but on magnetic tape (and this is taped too):
In 1956 in Chicago, Illinois, standing at that Lane Tech High School— (They were there.) I said, “This year is going to be the changing point of America.” I just come from overseas—don’t know why I come. Come back; canceled my meetings in Africa and around—come back. Billy Graham, something mysterious, he canceled his. Tommy Osborn canceled his. And we all crossing the United States in meetings. I said, “America will either receive or reject Christ this year.”
Then I said, “When they elected in Indiana, a 22 year boy— year old boy to be judge,” the Spirit of the Lord came on me and I said, “They’ll finally have a President that’ll be one of these crew cut, playboy, beatnik-type Presidents, a lady’s man.”
Now them’s predictions years ago. See where we’re at? It’s later than we think.
So I think that these messages on these Seven Church Ages is timely. Let’s be in prayer and study. Now, if you disagree and say, “I think Brother Branham’s wrong,” that—you got a right to do that; but before we do it—before you do, let’s search what the Lord has said with the Scriptures. See if— And then the prophecies, what was given that would come to pass, and look to see where they come to pass or not—
Now, it’s on tape and so forth. You know it’s spoke years ago, and here it is now coming to pass.
Mussolini went down to Ethiopia, didn’t he? Those poor colored people down there with scythe’s blades and sticks to fight with. And them—modern machinery—he just slaughtered them down. Come back blowing about it, but he met his doom. That’s correct.
And the Americans— And the Germans built the Maginot Line [Siegfried Line], and they— And Americans taken a hard beating there but finally overcome. Exactly right. You veterans brethren know that, and you all at the D-Day and so forth, and when they went in.
Now, and you find out then that women given the rights to vote, and they elected a President that they should not have elected. See? That’s that fall.
And the face of that, now, we’re coming up to this next meeting, coming up. And be prayerful, and pray hard now that God will bless us and will open our understandings, that we might know the hour that we’re living.
Let us bow our heads now for a word of prayer. Our gracious Lord, as in one way I feel shaky to know that this world is at the end time. I would not know what nation to flee to. There is no more refuge, only looking up. For it is told us when these things begin to come to pass, then look up for our redemption is drawing near.
Oh God, I pray for the sinful world today, in its condition, to see how everything is going on. I pray that somehow, Lord, that You’ll speak to every heart, every minister, that he might be a burning flame in these last days to call to repentance and back again to the faith, the church of the living God. As we know, we’re living in that Laodicean Church age, where that they’ll be lukewarm. I pray, Father, that You’ll let us hold tight to that what we have: Christ, looking for that day of His appearing.
Forgive us of our sins, as we have forgive those who have sinned against us. And we know now, Lord, that we see the outside world, knowing that it had to come to pass; there’s no way of stopping it. Though we speak against it and give a voice against it, yet we know in our hearts according to Thy Word, it’s going to be anyhow. For Thou has said so. But in that day of the judgment, when God’s great magnetic tape will be played, we want our voice against wrong and for right.
Encourage us today, Lord, by Thy Presence. Bless all these ministers that’s here, and all the laity of the church, all the borned again across the world, the great fire brands that You’ve got on radio and out in the other parts of the world, preaching the Gospel, missionaries going hungry, husbands and wives under deep persecutions, still standing at the post of duty— God bless them today.
And in the little tabernacle, give us of Thy blessings, Lord. Anoint us. Bless those who sang this morning the wonderful songs of Zion that we cherished in our heart through the years, knowing someday we’ll stand and sing those songs in the presence of the Lamb.
Bless the Word today, and anoint the message, Lord; for we ask it in Jesus’ name and for His sake. Amen.
