Within the sermon, Brother Branham retold about the experience he had in Sunset when the whirlwind came down and he was told, “Judgment is striking the West Coast.” Then he told of a vision he had of the preview of the Bride on July 3, 1964. (The first time he told about this was in his sermon, The Masterpiece. July 5, 1964. Jeffersonville, Indiana, USA.)
“A few weeks ago I was in a vision, and I was standing upon a high place, and I was to see the preview of the church. And I noticed coming from my--- I was standing more like this way, facing the west, and coming this way was the lovely bunch of women, real nice dressed, long hair fixed nice in the back, sleeves, and skirts down neatly, and they were all in a marching tune, like ‘Onward Christian soldiers marching as to war, with the cross of Jesus going on before.’

“And as they passed by, I stood, and there's something there, some Spirit was God, and He said, ‘There is the Bride.’ And I looked and my heart was happy. And she went around this way, and passed around behind me.

“After while when She come back this a-way, It said, ‘Now, the modern church will come into preview.’ And here come the Asian church up. I never seen such a filthy bunch. Here come the other churches up of the different nations. They looked horrible.

“And I say this because I am duty bound to tell the truth before God. And when He said, ‘Here comes the church of America now to be previewed,’ if I ever seen a bunch of devils, it was that. Them women were stripped naked with a old gray looking thing like a color of an elephant's hide, and they was holding it in front of them with no upper part on it at all, and they were doing this kind of stuff that these dances that these kids do out here, that twist and stuff and that kind of music going on. And when I seen Miss U.S.A. come up, I almost fainted.

“Now, this is ‘thus saith the Lord.’ If you believe me to be His servant, you believe me now. I wouldn't say that for nothing in the world; there's not enough money in all the world to get me to say that if it wasn't true.

“And when she come by, that was the filthiest looking thing I ever seen. I thought, ‘God, as hard as preachers and we brethren have labored to get You a Bride, and that's the best we could do.’ She was twisting, holding this in front of her like one of these hula skirts of a thing, holding it in front of her parts, her lower parts like this, dancing and twisting like these kids do out here on these vulgar shows that they have, twisting. That was Miss Christianity of America.

“So help me, by the help of God, that's what it looks like in His face. I just--- I start--- I could've fainted. I thought of all the trying, and the preaching, and the persuading: every one of them with bobbed hair, and they were twisting and carrying on, holding this in front. They come around where I was standing there with this supernatural Being. I couldn't see Him. I could hear Him talking to me. He was right around me. But when they turned this way, they hold--- they was just twisting and laughing and going on, carrying on like that, holding this in front of them.

“Now, me standing in His Presence there, and His servant, and of all I'd tried, that's the best I could do. I thought, ‘God, what good did it do me? What good did it do? All the crying, and begging, and persuading, and the great signs and wonders and miracles that You showed. And how I stood there and go home and cry after preaching to them and things, and what good did it do me? And then I have to present something like that for You for a Bride.’

“And as I stood there looking, she passed on by, and you can imagine the back part of her with nothing on, holding this in front of her as she went shimmying by like that to this twist, throwing her limbs out like that in her--- Oh, it was vulgar how she was carrying on, her body shaking around like that. Now, I---

“You say, ‘What does it mean, Brother Branham?’ I don't know. I'm just telling you what I seen. And when she passed by like that, I looked at her, and oh, I just got real faint. And I just turned around. I thought, ‘God, then I'm condemned. There's no need of me trying any how. I just might as well quit.’

“Mrs. Carl Williams, if you're setting here, and that dream that you told me about awhile ago that you had the other night that's been bothering you; there it is. The steering wheel is taken from my hand.

“Then I just thought I just might as well forget it--- I was gone. Then all at once, I heard them coming again, and coming upon this side come the same Bride that went around this a-way. Here come them little ladies again, and each one of them was dressed in their national garb from where they come from, like Switzerland, Germany and so forth, each one wearing that kind of garb, all long haired, just exactly like the one at the first. And here they was coming, walking, ‘Onward Christian soldiers marching as to war.’

“And when they had passed by the preview stand where we were standing, you just all at once every eye went that way, and then they turned back, and on they went marching. And just as they started to going right up into the skies, this other one went up to a brink of a hill and went down like that. These started marching right up into the skies. And when they went to marching, I noticed a couple of little girls from the back ---looked like they might be of some foreign girl, like Sweden or Switzerland, or somewhere's--- they started looking around and got--- I said, ‘Don't do that. Don't get out of that step.’ And as I screamed like that, I come to in the vision, standing there with my hand out like that."
