On April 9, 1964, about two weeks after the Alaskan earthquake, Brother Branham gave an explanation and referred to the earthquake that happened when Jesus died on Good Friday.
“The earth shaking all over with earthquakes--- Why? The first time the earthquake ever shook the whole earth was on Good Friday. The last time it shook it was another Good Friday.
“What did it shake for? Because they had rejected their Messiah. Why did it shake again? They’ve done the same thing. See? Laodicea church age, any scholar knows that He was on the outside knocking, try, ‘Lo, I stand at the door and knock.’ [Revelation 3:20] The only church age that ever completely put Him out.”
