At the FINISHING of the SEVENTH Seal, the mystery of God should be finished to know Who God is, what He is, how He lives, His nature, His Being. You're supposed to be all the way UP HERE by THAT TIME (See?), bring us into the FULL STATURE of sons and daughters of God, a Church that's washed in the Blood of Christ, that's bought without money, is paid for by the Blood of Jesus Christ.

35 A.GUIDE -- JEFF.IN -- 62-1014E

As Noah, Moses, David, reflected the coming of this perfect BRIDEGROOM; so has Luther, Wesley, and Pentecost, reflected the coming of a PERFECT BRIDE.


That is what the short and powerful latter rain outpouring of the Holy Spirit will produce, a perfect Bride in the FULL STATURE of the perfect Bridegroom. The Holy Spirit, the Voice of the Archangel will anoint gifted people simultaneously all over the world and work through the restored 9 gifts of the Spirit. There will be a repeat ministry like it was in the days of Ananias and Sapphira, as Acts 5 tells us. Brother Branham mentioned that many times in his sermons.

And just before God cut off relationship with the Jews, He put nine spiritual gifts into the Church. And just before the Gentile's age is over, He's RESTORING back in the Church those nine spiritual gifts, giving the Gentile church its last call before turning again to Israel.

E-23 EXPECTATION -- NEW.YORK.NY -- 50-0405

You know, the hour will soon arise when--when right AMONG US will be... the Holy Spirit will speak out like It did in Ananias and Sapphira. Remember, see, that hour is arriving. See? And we are... Now, you just remember that, see, that God is going to DWELL AMONG His people. That's what HE WANTS TO DO now.

60 COMMUNION -- TUCSON.AZ -- 65-1212

Almight God will come back to be AMONG His worldwide Bride as He was with His Prophet, to guide and lead us all the way to the full image and likeness of Jesus Christ. That is the real and true understanding of the promised “return ministry.” NOT Brother Branham coming back to take the Bride by the hand to take her up to Heaven as thousands of Message followers believe. There are dozens of quotes right through the Message which say that the next time Brother Branham will meet his converts, it will be yonder at the Judgment Seat of Christ on the day of redemption, and nowhere else.

But one of these days we're going to have to meet again into His Presence and give an account for all that we've done and said here on earth, when the GREAT Book is opened in the JUDGMENT.


But one of these days, if we never meet again on this EARTH, we're going to meet yonder at the--at the JUDGMENT Seat of Christ. And you'll find out…

568-2 {335} THE.SEVENTH.SEAL -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0324E

If I never see you again; when I meet you there at the Judgment Seat of Christ, where WE’LL ALL meet, remember, I have told you the Truth. I'll still be saying that when I meet you THERE. Until then, may the Lord bless you, richly.

22 INFLUENCE -- BEAUMONT.TX -- 64-0315

As the next quote confirms, that same ministry of the Angel of the Lord which Ananias and Sapphira experienced, that will achieve what no other age has fully accomplished, it will take ALL the wrongs out of each individual believer. ALL sin and unbelief will be openly called out and dealt with, and those of us who will confess and become completely obedient to the leading of the Holy Spirit, they will be led by that Angel to the full stature of the perfect man.

Because that Eve listened to the word of discrepancy, contrary to the Word of God, and it started the ball of sin rolling right there, and has rolled ever since. And we'll NEVER get it ALL OUT until the Angels comes and segregates the thing, and God takes His children to the Kingdom, and the tares will be burned. Notice those two vines.


We are over here in the LAST age. And the first age begin with the Word, which was Christ. And the last age has to END with the Word, which is Christ. And these other things, these shucks and so forth, as I have explained, is just carriers of the Word, to serve its purpose until It comes into the FULL STATURE, see, of what the original grain was.


1 JOHN 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as

the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

The Bible says in Romans 6:23 that the wages of sin is death, so how can we accomplish to triumph over death and bypass the grave? There is only one way to achieve that, every individual believer must come personally into that most blessed state of perfection. The next quote explains that to be ready for the coming of the Lord, we must increase Word upon Word to eventually possess all these 7 virtues, which brings us to the full stature of Christ. This quote spells it out clearly that when the last one of the living saints on earth has come to the FULL STATURE of CHRIST, only then can the Lord come to get His Bride.

You're born anew. Don't try to dig him up. He's dead. If you're a born-again Christian, that little germ that was predestinated to you, it's Word coming on Word, on Word, on Word, on Word, and come into FULL STATURE of Christ, that's right, so HE CAN COME get His Bride. Now we're just ready for one thing, that's the COMING of the Lord.


When the last predestinated saint of God has come into the FULL STATURE of the perfect man, and is sealed by the Holy Spirit UNTO the day of Redemption, then the church ages will be completed. That will instantly start the SIXTH Seal, everybody will know when that happens because there will be a great earthquake that will shake and unbalance the whole earth, and the sun will turn black and the moon red like blood from the effect of that huge catastrophe, as Revelation 6:12 says.

Just last March, 1964, that Good Friday earthquake of Alaska shook the whole world though it did NOT UNBALANCE it. But God was warning by a world tremor what He will soon do on a GREATER SCALE.


REVELATION 6:12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great

earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;

He opened the SIXTH SEAL by saying the moon would be turned into blood and darkness and everything, these things would take place. We come right over here, open up the Sixth Seal.


Anyone knows that the world, positionally, everything is sitting in order for His Coming. "Earthquakes in divers places; the MOON is spurting out red blood, or red volcanic all over, covering it," as Jesus said watch for THAT SIGN in the last days …


That sign will be seen and felt all over the world, then we will know that the church ages have ended. A few months before the Laodicean church age started at the Azusa street in Los Angeles, there was a massive earthquake in California which destroyed 80 % of San Francisco. At that time, there were many prophesies which predicted that the age will end with a greater earthquake. The Prophet tells us that will happen BEFORE the coming of the Lord. There are also Jewish Rabbis who predict that God will return to Israel after an earthquake, they say Psalm 93 explains that.

Look at the earthquakes over here in California. I predict, BEFORE the COMING of the Lord Jesus, that God will sink that place. I believe that Hollywood and Los Angeles, and them filthy places over there, that God Almighty will sink them. They'll go beneath the bottom of the sea.


PSALM 93:1 The LORD reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the LORD is clothed with strength,

wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved.

2 Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting.

3 The floods HAVE lifted up, O LORD, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves.

4 The LORD on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea.

Verse 1 describes the Lord being girded as a Judge, and verse 2 portrays Him as the King. That is exactly what He will be at His second coming, the Judge, and to be crowned as King of kings. But before that takes place, Brother Branham said that a chunk of the American west coast, about 400 miles wide and 1500 miles long, will sink about 40 miles down into that great fault. That will unbalance the earth, Isaiah 24:20 says that the earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard. It will cause massive tidal waves, a huge tsunami destruction along the COASTS around the entire world, as verses 3 and 4 in Psalm 93 indicate. The Prophet Jeremiah tells it like this:

JEREMIAH 25:32 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation,

and a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the COASTS of the earth.

33 And the slain of the LORD shall be at that day from one end of the earth even unto the other end of

the earth: they shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they shall be dung upon the ground.

The end of the church ages will instantly start the sixth Seal, which is also called the Judgment Seal or the tribulation Seal. Then there will be a short space of time between the END of the church ages and the fulfillment of the second coming of the Lord, which is the fulfillment of the SEVENTH SEAL. At that short space of time, an anointed Gentile Prophet will take the Gospel Message back to the Jews again, and the 144 000 Jews will be sealed by the Holy Spirit through his preaching.

And I believe that someday the--the Gentile church will take the message to the Jew, as the Jew gave it to the Gentiles. I believe that with all my heart. And then when that goes back to the Jew in full, you watch, the Gentile door will close then, and it'll be Jews.

E-1 THE.PATH.OF.LIFE -- S.GATE.CA -- 62-0621B

The iniquity of the Gentiles hasn't filled up yet, just to the end of the cup, but someday that'll be. And God will send somebody there that's a PROPHET, and will prove to them... I trust that God will raise him up right away, whoever he may be, that'll raise him quickly.


God hardened Hitler's heart, Mussolini's heart, Stalin's heart. He's driving by force into Palestine, not knowing what he's doing, working right in the hands of God. Them hundred and forty-four thousand will stand yonder. And one of these days, some Divine, holy, anointed PROPHET of God will go over there with SIGNS and wonders. Those Jews will say, "That's what I'm looking for." Yes, sir. And God will BAPTIZE a hundred and forty-four thousand Jews.

277 THE.SEAL.OF.GOD -- JEFF.IN -- 54-0514

ACTS 15:7 And when there had been much disputing, Peter rose up, and said unto them, Men and brethren, ye know how that a

good while ago God made choice among us, that the Gentiles by my mouth should hear the word of the gospel, and believe.

Peter was one of the Jews who brought the message of Christianity to the Gentiles as it is explained in Acts 10. He describes how the Lord sent him to Cornelius, and after preaching a short while, the Holy Spirit baptized those Gentiles with the Holy Spirit the same as the 120 experienced at the upper room at the day of Pentecost. After the completion of the church ages, when the Lord will send that Gentile Prophet to go to Israel, he will preach the same Message we have to those Jews, and great signs and wonders will take place, and the 144 000 Jews will believe it and be sealed by the Holy Spirit as Cornelius and his friends were in Acts 10:44 to 46. In 1954, some Brothers arranged for Brother Branham to visit Israel, and to show the Jews the signs of the Messiah and preach the Message to them. He was already at the airport in Cairo, waiting to board the flight to Israel when the Lord stopped him. He explains:

And something struck me and said, "DO NOT GO NOW, for the hour is not yet." See, the Gentile's isn't fulfilled yet (See?), day ISN’T finished.

"Oh," I thought, "that was just me." So I started again, and it got so bad till I just couldn't stand it. And I went out behind a hangar, and I bowed my head; I said, "Father, is that You speaking to me?" He said, "Do not go to Israel now; the hour is not yet." I just went in, changed my ticket, routed it again, went the other way (See?), 'cause the hour is not yet.


And one of these days God's going to let me go to Jerusalem. That will be it. Just remember. If you believe me to be God's servant... When the Jews receive Christ as Messiah, the Gentiles are finished.

E-57 IT.IS.I.BE.NOT.AFRAID -- TULSA.OK -- 60-0329

No, Brother Branham could not have gone to Israel in 1954, and neither could he have gone in 1960 as he expressed hopefully in the last quote, because almost all of us would have ended up in the tribulation which would have followed straight after his Israel visit. We wonder who that Gentile Prophet will be who is chosen of God to take the Message to the Jews at the right hour? We just have to wait and see for the answer of that question, till it will be revealed at the correct time.



The Jews will say, "This is that. There's our God Who we've waited on." There's where your hundred and forty-four thousand, that Russellites got mixed up in. There's those Jews standing there that will receive Him. They said, "There's our God Who we've waited on." They'll see Him...


When they see Jesus coming for the Bride, they'll say, "Lo, this is our God Who we waited on. That's Him." But He's not coming for them; He come for His Bride.


ISAIAH 25:9 And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he

will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.

Notice, they'll know their Messiah when they see Him. He is coming in power, this time, the One they looked for. He is coming in power, for the Gentile BRIDE, and the Jews are going to recognize Him.


These quotes and Scripture tell us that when the Lord will show the mighty signs and wonders of the Messiah in Israel through that Gentile Prophet, the Jews will believe the Messiah has come to fully redeem them. But the ministry of that Prophet will be to convert the 144 000, and for them to be baptized with the Holy Spirit UNTO THEIR own day of Redemption, which will be 3.5 years later as explained in Revelation 11:18. The Lord is actually coming to fully redeem his Bride in the fulfillment of the 7th Seal, but for various reasons He has to seal the 144 000 first before He can judge and redeem and reward us. This chart explains it:

Now, now, we're going to speak here now on this 7th chapter just a minute to--to kinda bridge it in BETWEEN Sixth and Seventh Seal, because that's the only material that we have to go on right now, is the Sixth--BETWEEN the Sixth and Seventh Seal, is the calling out of Israel.

536-6 {81} THE.SEVENTH.SEAL -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0324E

For the remnant, or the hundred and forty-four thousand predestinated, receives the SEAL of God. Let's just read. Now, listen real close now. Now, I want you to read with me if you can because I'm going to refer back to this just in a little bit: 7th chapter, now this is BETWEEN the Sixth and Seventh Seal.... after these things... (After these things, these Seals, this SIXTH Seal was let loose, and that's the TRIBULATION period.

542-2 {126} THE.SEVENTH.SEAL -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0324E

BETWEEN the SIXTH Seal and the SEVENTH Seal, there was a calling out of the hundred and forty-four thousand. You remember that?


This short space of time between the start of the SIXTH Seal and the SEVENTH Seals, the Bible refers to that time as “ONE DAY” when the 144 000 Jews will be converted and accept Jesus as the Messiah. As the next quote indicates again, this conversion will come through the signs and preaching of that Gentile Prophet. The Bible says that ALL Israel will be saved, that means the 144 000 Jews are ALL Israel (12 000 of each of the 12 tribes). Brother Branham says time and again that God deals with Israel as a nation, which means that in the eyes of God, the 144 000 are the NATION of Israel which will be born at once. The rest of Israel, all those millions of Jews will join the World Council of Churches and the Catholic Church, and they will receive the mark of the Beast when they make that covenant with them.

ISAIAH 66:8 Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in

ONE DAY? or shall a NATION be born AT ONCE? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.

Brother Branham says that Zion is always the Bride. She will have a hard time at the time of the squeeze, we will be severely tested, and the manifestation of the third pull will be the only way to avoid the mark of the Beast and physically survive. But as soon as she has travailed and overcome every obstacle, the church ages will end, and Israel will bring forth her 144 000 children, a nation born in one day by the ministry of that Gentile Prophet.

…they said, 'If this Jesus, if He is the Messiah and your words are true, then He is not dead, and He's alive. And if He's alive, He promised to be in His--the--His servants, His disciples. And if we can see Him do the sign of a prophet, then we will believe that He is Messiah...'" What a perfect thing, exactly right. Then what would that do? A nation would be borned in one day amongst the leaders. Every one of them would say, "We know it." When that rabbi says that, that settles it. A nation would be born in one day. ISRAEL would be born in ONE DAY. And I was on my road and stood at Cairo, Egypt, with the ticket in my hand…


But now, he's to bring them all in together and make a confederation, and in there the JEWS will accept it. Oh, glory, hallelujah. Praise be to our God Who lives forever and ever. There you are. Now, brother, it's just as simple as simple as... A little kid could see it. The confederation will bring in JEWISH, and Protestant, and Catholic TOGETHER.


There are very good explanations why these Jews must be saved and sealed at that short period of time, which everybody should be able to understand, and one of them is the law of Redemption. We all know the story of Boaz and Naomi and Ruth, and we understand that Boaz could not take Ruth to be his wife unless he first redeemed Naomi. We know that Boaz represents Jesus Christ, Naomi types the 144 000, and Ruth being a Gentile is a type of the Bride.

"There you are. Let all Israel know that I have REDEEMED Naomi, and I also take Ruth." Amen. "I take Ruth for my bride." Who was it? The Lord of the harvest. Amen. There she is, "I redeem Naomi, and I get Ruth. And Ruth will be my bride."


He had to be a kinsman, a near kinsman, and redeeming Naomi he got Ruth. That was Jesus, Boaz typing CHRIST; and when He redeemed Israel, He got the Gentile Bride. 88-3 {134}


Another reason why the 144 000 Jews have to be sealed at that time is that they must be saved BEFORE Christ leaves the Mercy Seat, and comes forth to take the Book and open the seven LAST Seals. There will be no more Grace and Mercy, and no more Salvation after that, not for Gentiles or for Jews. The Mercy Seat will become a Judgment Seat, and the atoning Blood will be removed from off the Altar. At that time between the 6th and 7th Seal, the 144 000 will be the last ones ever to be saved, and throughout the 3.5 years of tribulation, nobody will be added or taken away from that number of believing Jews, they are the last ones.

God created that blood cell without anything to do with any man, JEW or GENTILE. We're saved by the blood of Immanuel. "Drawn from Immanuel's veins, where sinners plunged beneath the flood, lose all their guilty stains."


REVELATION 22:11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still:

and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.

12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

306. After the Bride is raptured will any of the foolish virgin be saved or will they all be lost?

No. See, everything will be FINISHED for the Gentile church when the Bride is taken from the earth. The Spirit of God leaves the earth: "He that's filthy is filthy still; he that's righteous is righteous still; he that's holy is holy still." In other words the sanctuary becomes smoky, where the--the Attorney stands to plead the case. Christ leaves the sanctuary; His day of mediatorial is OVER. The RAPTURE comes; He leaves from the sanctuary, goes forth and TAKES the BOOK of Redemption, and CLAIMS everything He redeemed. There's no more mediatorial work. How many understands that?

1032-Q-306 QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS.2 -- JEFF.IN -- 64-0823E

How many understands that? That is a very serious question! Except for a few friends of mine in different parts of the world, we do not know of anyone else in the worldwide Message who understands and teaches the Message as the quote above (and many more) plainly and clearly explains the second coming of the Lord. When Christ leaves that Mercy Seat to come forth to fully redeem every individual holy saint of His gathered Bride, the unrighteous, the filthy, the righteous and the holy people will remain the way they are from there on forever. But after the church ages, and just before that great event, He will seal the 144 000 Jews.

So the hundred and forty-four thousand are Jews, God's servants. And when the Holy Ghost Gospel is preached to them, and they receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost just exactly like they did in the beginning, the Gentile dispensation is finished, the church is sealed away, the RAPTURE COMES.

96-225 QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS.1 -- JEFF.IN -- COD -- 54-0103M

96-229 The Jews has got to receive the Holy Ghost and be baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ. Along they persecuted and made fun of; and there, as soon as the Holy Ghost is represented to them, they receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost. The Gentile Church IS RAPTURED.

The Rapture Brother Branham mentioned in the last three quotes is NOT the generally known Rapture. This Rapture is the translation of the living saints, the HOLY Bride, to join the dead in Christ before the Throne to be fully redeemed by the coming Kinsman Redeemer, as illustrated in the chart above. According to our Prophet, this translation is the start of the actual manifestation of the SEVENTH SEAL, the first part of it, after the sealing of the 144 000 Jews.



Now, as soon as this Church (the Bride) is drawed together, She is TAKEN UP; in that MYSTERY of the SEVENTH SEAL, or the Seventh Seal, the MYSTERY OF GOING. And the Jews is called by the mystery of the Seventh Trumpet, which is two prophets, Elijah and Moses, and they come back.


Then John was summoned to come up higher, "come UP hither," which means "come up here." He showed him all that was going to happen in the world of the--the church age. Then after the church ages was over, we find then that John was a type of EVERY true BELIEVER that will be summoned by Christ on high. That right? Summoned, "Come up hither."


NO, not the resurrection of the dead in Christ, but the call to “Come up hither” is the next thing to happen for the living saints on earth. There are lots of quotes in the Message to confirm that over and over. As the next quote explains, this Rapture or Translation is ONLY for the living saints, we must not miss that!

3rd mystery is the mystery of the TRANSLATION of the living saints at the end time of this age: I Corinthians 15 and also Thessalonians 4:14-17.


I look right back and see myself laying on the bed. "O Lord, let me look a past the curtain of time." What is it? It's quickening power that will CATCH US AWAY. That great quickening power. The quickening power come in this last days.

227 THE.EASTER.SEAL -- PHOENIX.AZ -- 65-0410

The revealed mystery OF GOING, or being TAKEN UP, or “COME UP HITHER” at the start of the seventh Seal is that the living saints will leave their bodies, and enter their waiting Theophany bodies and with great rapturing faith be translated to meet the dead in Christ before the Throne. This translation will be like Brother Branham experienced in 1960 when he was taken out of his body to be translated behind the curtain of time. This Rapture or Translation is further explained in chapter 12 at this website with all the relevant quotes and Scriptures, the title is ”The first of the two Raptures.” That way, I do not need to repeat it all over again.

That's the way the church will be CAUGHT UP in the air, in the MIDDLE of the air, and meet the Lord on His ROAD DOWN. Oh, what an affair it will be, love at the first sight. And when we stand there upon the rings of this earth and sing them songs of redemption... Oh, my, how we'll sing and praise Him for our--the redeeming grace that He's give us. When Angels will cover the sides of the--the circle of the earth with bowed heads, not knowing what we're talking about... Them Angels wasn't lost; they won't know what it means to BE SAVED. We was the ones who was lost; we were the one. We'll understand then what a horrible thing laid ahead of us, and He redeemed us by His Blood, out of every kindred, tongue, and nation. What a DAY of rejoicing that will be.


What did Moses meant? Moses was--represented the ones that had died and was sleeping in the grave, 'cause Moses died and was buried; nobody know where he was buried at. But he represented the ones that were asleep WHEN HE COME. And Elijah represented the TRANSLATED ones, who didn't have to die. See? There you are.


Now look at transfiguration. WE was, every one, represented there. There was the living saints that had RAPTURED, there was Elijah standing there; and there stood Moses, the dead saints repre-... Also, both of them had quickening Power. Whether one DIED, and the other DIDN’T DIE, they're ALL there.


These quotes above, and lots more confirm the sequence of events at the start of the SEVENTH Seal, as explained in the chart. The living saints will be RAPTURED, translated, taken up or caught up as Brother Branham calls it in these various quotes, to join the dead saints at the Throne. He clarified that in many sermons when he explained the meaning of Moses and Elijah on Mt. Transfiguration. In the third last quote, Brother Branham says that this will take place “In the middle of the air” where we will meet the Lord Jesus on His “Road down.” This will be the continuation of the SEVENTH Seal, as we see it clearly explained in many other quotes.

The Lamb had redeemed it, but He could not come forth until every name was revealed, and that was taking place under the Sixth Seal, BEFORE the Seventh broke. Then the spotless... Then the Lamb came for what He had redeemed. He come to claim what He had redeemed. He's already got it, right here in the Book, taken It from His hand. Now He's coming to receive what He has redeemed. That's His work. He's done. He's come to receive it. Oh, what a--what a time! Has proven it, the SEVENTH SEAL proved it. Come back and took the Book of Redemption!


347 But, remember, all this time, Noah was in the ark. The Bride is sealed in with Christ, the last member has been redeemed. The Sixth Seal has produced itself. The SEVENTH Seal brings Him BACK TO EARTH. The Lamb come and took the Book out of the right hand of Him, and set down and claimed what He owned, what He had redeemed. That right? It's always been that Third Pull.

Here now, we find that the Sixth Seal has been opened to us; we see it, and we know that this SEVENTH Seal cannot be broke to the public until that hour arrives. Now, there was some reason that God let this seven voices be thundered, because it must come (See?), for the... We find that Christ, the Lamb took the--the Book in His hand, and He opened that SEVENTH Seal. But you see, it's a hidden mystery. No one knows it. But it--it's right along with what He said: no one would know His coming; they also would not know about this seven thunder mystery. So you see, it's connected together.

76-3 {394} THE.SEVENTH.SEAL -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0324E

In every one of these last three quotes, Brother Branham says again that the hour of the manifestation of the SIXTH Seal must come first BEFORE the Lord will come down to open the seventh Seal. We understand that can only happen AFTER the church ages have been completed, and the Gospel has gone over to Israel already, and after the 144 000 Jews have been sealed. We must read the next quote very carefully, he says that when the LAST ONE, or SEVENTH Seal of the 7 written Seals will be opened, when THEY will be opened, then the day is finished, it’s all over, time has run out. How can the ONE be THEY? THEY, the seven LAST Seals will be a part of the whole manifestation of the seventh Seal, which is the LAST ONE. Under the seventh Seal Jesus comes as the Lion, the JUDGE, the King of kings and Kinsman Redeemer, and He takes the Book and opens the 7 last Seals, as the quotes above and the next ones clearly indicate.

The seven and LAST ONE of THESE Seals, when THEY’RE opened, is found in Revelations the 10th chapter; there was a mighty Angel (which was Christ) came down and put one foot on the land and one on the sea, and raised up His hand, and says, "The day is finished. Time is run out. It's all over. Time shall be no more."


And John omitted the SEVENTH Seal--the SEVEN LAST--the Seventh Seal. That's going to be a great thing. It's not even written (See?), omitted the Seventh Seal, both of them did.

418-5 {189} THE.SIXTH.SEAL -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0323

Revelations 10, at the END we find when the LAST SEAL was broke, we find the Angel standing with one foot on the land and one on the sea, with His hands up to heaven, and a rainbow over His head, swearing by Him that lives forever and ever, that time has run out on the LAST Seal. And you wait till we get in them Seals and see where that Seal's at. After you find the SEVENTY of WEEKS, THEN see where the Seals are. Time has run out. Redemption is over. He is now the Lion and the Judge. He's your Saviour this morning, but one day He'll be YOUR Judge.


At the same time when the church ages end, the Gospel will go over to the Jews, which will start the sixth Seal instantly and also the remaining last half of Daniel’s SEVENTIETH week. As the quote above tells us once again, it will be at that time within the seventieth week when the opening of the seven last Seals will take place. Near the end of chapter 25, there are 10 quotes which confirm that the opening of the 7 last Seals is connected to Daniel’s 70 weeks.

So here come the Lamb now. His intercessory days is over, the mediatorial days. That's when this Angel's going to stand there (You wait till we get in the Seals.) and time shall be no more. That's right. That half hour of silence; watch what takes place in that half hour of SILENCE on that SEVENTH Seal next Sunday night, Lord willing. He comes forth (what?) to take His claims now (Oh, my.), comes forth to take His claims. Now, He had done the kinsman work.


Sunday night, I don't know what--I don't what these others mean; I just read them like you did; but there's SILENCE for a half hour; but there's something took place. I'm expecting Him to reveal it.

329-5 {374} THE.FOURTH.SEAL -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0321

May the Lord help us to open the SEVENTH Seal, where there's just a short verse, and it says this: "There was SILENCE in heaven for a half hour,"


Brother Branham connects the half hour silence mentioned in Revelation 8:1 to the opening of the seventh Seal. But in Revelation 5, under the seventh Seal, when the bloody Lamb comes forth to take the Book out of the hand of Him on the Throne, all the gathered saints of all ages and the heavenly host will worship the Lord with singing and “with a loud voice” as verse 12 says. How can that be, it looks like a contradiction! The Lord Jesus is still on the Mercy Seat, which is according to Ephesians 4:10 above the Heavens, which is the seventh Heaven above the Altar. On that day, He will leave that Seat and come down to meet His Bride at the Throne in the third Heaven, therefore there will be silence in the seventh Heaven while He is down here to open the seventh Seal and fully redeem His Bride.

And Jesus comes FROM heaven with ten thousands times ten thousands of His saints, and the Bible said that the heavens was EMPTY for the space of a half hour. Where is this big fellow, God then? Uh-huh. See, He's in Christ. Sure.


He kept it a secret. Nobody knowed nothing about it. Even the Angels didn't understand it. See, He didn't reveal it. That's the reason, under our seventh mystery, when the SEVENTH Seal was opened, there was SILENCE.


Because, Jesus said Himself, "Not even an Angel of Heaven knows WHEN I will return. I don't even know it, Myself, what time. The Father has put that in His mind." God alone knows it, the Spirit. Said, "I didn't know it." Then, it wasn't revealed. When that Seventh Trumpet sounded... or the Seventh Angel, a--a Seal was opened, then there was SILENCE in the Heaven. See, it wasn't give away, what would take place.


All the Trumpets sounded under the Sixth Seal. Because, the SEVENTH Seal, there was SILENCE. "No one knew; that was the MINUTE or hour that Christ would come," as He revealed it to us.


In 1963, when the 7 written Seals were opened on earth, there was silence in HEAVEN when the Seventh Seal was opened. Why? Because those mysteries can only be revealed at the actual opening of that Seventh Seal up there in HEAVEN. We never say that we know everything about the Seventh Seal, there are great secrets under that Seal of which nobody knows anything about. Revelation 4:1, when we personally hear that Voice like a Trumpet saying “Come up hither,” then and only then will we know the MINUTE of the coming of the Lord. Other mysteries which will be revealed by the bloody Lamb at that time are the new name of Jesus, our new names, our exact position in the body of Christ, our personal reward which we receive at that day, and much more which we cannot grasp in this faulty flesh body, and in this low dimension. The next quotes are difficult to understand, there is not enough information in the Message to be sure about it.

…the mighty Gabriel. He's a messengers to the Jews. Remember, Gabriel announced the first coming of Christ; the Angel Gabriel will announce the second coming of Christ. The Bible said so.

E-18 MARY'S.BELIEF -- PHOENIX.AZ -- 60-0311

…the sun is swiftly going down, time shall be no more, one day the great ARCHANGEL will step out on the scene of time, from out of Eternity. And the trumpet of God shall sound, and every man and woman will ANSWER to what we know to be the Truth, the Word of God.

200 PARDON -- TUCSON.AZ -- 63-1028

It could be that Brother Branham means that the great Archangel Gabriel will be the anointing, the Voice of the Archangel of 1 Thessalonians 4:16, Who in the latter rain will make us ready for the second coming of Christ. Over there every man and woman will answer for their deeds done in their bodies, as 2 Corinthians 5:10 and other Scriptures tell us. On the other hand, the Archangel Gabriel is not Jesus Christ Who Himself shall descend with the “Voice of the Archangel.” So at this time, we do not know the correct answer to that question. The next quote is another one which still needs a correct answer.

Now, the Angel was to my left, would really be the LAST, or SEVENTH Angel, if we would count them from left to right, because he was on my left, me looking to him towards the west, him coming towards the east would be on the left side, so that would be the last Angel's MESSAGE: very notable. You remember how I said he had his--kind of his head back, and his great sharp wings, and how he flew right to me. Now, that is THIS SEVENTH SEAL. It's still is a notable thing. And we are... We DON’T KNOW what it is as yet, because it's not permitted to be broken.

578-2 {407} THE.SEVENTH.SEAL -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0324E

There are lots of different “revelations” of Who that Angel is supposed to be. Some say it was Brother Branham’s Theophany body, others have other interpretations. But Who is that SEVENTH SEAL Angel? The Archangel mentioned above? Brother Branham says we don’t know yet. He said that Angel has still a message to bring, but we know for sure that there will be no further Message than the one brought to us by Brother Branham. The next quote seems to speak of the same event at the same time as the last quote above referred to. If that is so, then that means that at the end, that SEVENTH SEAL Angel will call out the true genuine predestinated saints out of this present confused and puzzled worldwide conglomeration of Message followers. He will give us the true interpretation and doctrine of the Message, and every detail of what we don’t know yet about the coming of the Lord.

You remember when them last angels, that third Angel come across, "COME OUT OF HER my people."... When that ANGEL FLIES at the same time that MESSAGE drops here for the last trumpet, last angel's message, LAST SEAL opens. All happens at the SAME TIME. Yes, sir. All seals up and goes over into eternity.

173-3 {387} THE.FIRST.SEAL -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0318

…the Angel appears right at the end time, and just at the end time, to rebuke the church for losing its first love and how it's got away from God like they did down through there, the ages. And at that time the RAPTURE COMES to take the church home; the church goes up just at the time of the message.


MATTHEW 13:40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the END of this world.

41 The Son of man shall send forth his ANGELS, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;

42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

He said, "He sends His angels to separate them." An Angel is coming to bring the SEPARATION, the segregation between the right and the wrong. And no one can do that but the Angel of the Lord. He's the One that is going to tell which is right and which is wrong. God said He will send His Angels at the last times. Not Angels down through here, but Angels at the last time, and would gather together. We know that this is the COMING HARVEST TIME now.


The Angel of the Lord will separate between right and wrong, and restore the Message to it’s original and unadulterated state, to call out and bring that little group on the right side to the full stature of the perfect man, and make us ready to come up hither for the opening of the seven last Seals. They will understand that there are 2 times 7 Seals opened at different times, they will not stumble at the fact that there will be a Judgment for the righteous saints before the resurrection of the dead in Christ, and they will become the full manifestation of the Word of God in word and deeds, with all 9 gifts in operation. The next few quotes confirm that.

I believe that we still have great Light coming on now that'll just flood the earth one of these days for a short period, maybe just in a matter a MONTHS. But I believe that there's great Light coming.


Can't you see we're at the end time? It's all over. The next thing will be a SWEEP will...?... that little group together. In a MONTH or so she'll be gone, as soon as she's gathered together. Well, we're at the END. There's no hopes left nowhere. Run to Christ, people.


I'm only building. The hour is close at hand when you're going to see something happen, when something is going to take place. And all this background here has only been laying a foundation for a short, quick MESSAGE that will shake the whole nations.

94 AND.KNOWETH.IT.NOT -- JEFF.IN -- 65-0815

But watch when, the spiritual Bride, when She begins to have a revival, when She begins to COME BACK and line Herself up with the Word of God. Watch then again, you see, how that the Scriptures, at that time, There'll be a MESSAGE sweep out to catch that Bride, catch that Woman, Elect.




In Daniel chapter 9, we read that Daniel realized that the prophesied 70 years of exile in Babylon was coming to an end. With fasting and sackcloth, he prayed before the Lord and pleaded for forgiveness of his and his people’s transgression and sins, and iniquities and unrighteousness. While still in prayer, the Angel Gabriel appeared to him to give the “greatly beloved” Prophet Daniel understanding. Gabriel’s assurance that their sins and iniquities were forgiven is actually twofold, first after their first exile in Babylon in Daniel's time, and more so at their return from the second exile from all over the world back to Israel, as it is happening at this time.

DANIEL 9:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the

transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in

everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.

We know that God will not deal with the Gentiles and Israel as a nation at the same time. Therefore, these Scriptures in Daniel 9:24 to 27 will be fulfilled AFTER the church ages have finished. The following brief extracts from the Message show us that the first 4 folds of the 6 folds apply mainly to the 144 000 Jews who will be sealed by the Holy Spirit between the end of the 7 church ages, and the start of the seventh Seal, which is the second coming of the Lord.

40 ...Number one: To finish the transgression. That's the first thing...


42 ...Romans 11:21... ...for God is able to graft them in again. (See? Telling that there will be a time that when the Gentile will be cut out and Israel come back in again.)

52 ...Number two: Make a end of sins... That's His second purpose of coming. First is to finish Israel's transgression and to make an end of sin. Where did Israel sin? Where did they do their vital sin? Where did they separate themselves from God?... Matthew's... the 25th verse of the 27th chapter.

55 ...Then answered... the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children. There's where they done it. He was making a end of sin for them. How could He do anything else but forgive them, knowing that He had to blind their eyes that we could come in.

85 Number three: To make reconciliations for iniquity... (Zechariah 13:7) ...smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn my hand upon the little ones... "And I will turn My hands to the LITTLE ONES." What? The Benjamin group that's COMING up NOW.

96 Number four: To bring in everlasting righteousness... When bringing in everlasting righteousness, something that cannot end. All because unrighteousness will be done away with.

After the 144 000 ”little ones” have accepted Jesus Christ as their Messiah through the preaching of that Gentile Prophet, and all are sealed by the Holy Spirit at once, then comes the fifth fold. According to Bro. Branham, that will be the opening of the 7 other, or 7 different, or 7 last Seals, as he calls it.

103 Number five: To SEAL UP the vision and prophecy...

106 (Daniel 12:4) Listen. Here it is, the real true sealing. But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the END:... What is it? Oh, hallelujah. Do you see it, class? This revelation of Jesus Christ, and of His power, of HIS COMING, of the end time was sealed up UNTIL THIS TIME.

110 The end time Message shall REVEAL IT, the last church age. Glory. Whew. There you are. Oh, my. It shakes me to think of it. The mystery...

114 Now, Paul speaking... The time when the Seal of God is being made known, His Spirit, His Name, His grace, all these other great mysteries that's going forth NOW, plans for His Church to go in the RAPTURE, the outpouring of the Holy Ghost has done this. That's what He DONE in the last days.

Without the opening of the mysteries of the 7 written Seals of the Bible in 1963, and the Message as a whole, this chapter could not have been written. But these previously hidden MYSTERIES have been revealed by the Holy Spirit through our Prophet that we can know the sequence of events as they will take place right up to the very end. Daniel did not understand these mysteries, because it was not time yet for them to be understood, and Gabriel told him that these mysteries will be sealed up till the end, only then will the vision and prophesy be “unsealed (SEAL NOT)” as Revelation 22:10 says. That was not in March 1963, it will be at the second coming of the Lord when He will come quickly with His rewards which He will give personally to each and every one of all the gathered saints of ALL ages.

DANIEL 12:8 And I heard, but I understood NOT: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?

9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and SEALED till the TIME of the END.

13 But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.

REVELATION 22:10 And he saith unto me, SEAL NOT the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the TIME is at hand.

11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous,

let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.

12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my REWARDS is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

And may there not be one person here this morning lost, may everyone be ready, be in that great circle when we meet at the other side. When the roll is called, may I hear the name after name, "PRESENT." That's what we're looking for, Lord…

…But we hear what You said to the prophet, "Go thy way, Daniel, for thou shall rest in thy lot, but in THAT DAY you will stand." O God, LET US be counted worthy through the Blood of Jesus; no merits of our own do we claim; but through His merits may we be worthy to stand at that day as we confess our wrong and desire to stand in His righteousness, with the great prophet Daniel and all those who will stand when the REWARDS are given.

16 COUNTDOWN -- JEFF.IN -- 62-0909M

Revelation 22:11 will be fulfilled when the Lord Jesus will leave the Mercy Seat. The unjust, the filthy, the righteous and the holy will remain the way they are, they cannot become righteous or holy without the blood of Jesus on the Altar. That will be the time when Daniel will also stand in his lot, and I am in my lot, and everybody else who is recorded in the Lamb's Book of Life will be present and stand in his or her lot, and we all will be confirmed and rewarded as blameless and faultless overcomer of sin and unbelief. Oh what a day that will be, when my Jesus I will see, when I look upon His face, the One Who saved me by his grace…

1 CORINTHIANS 13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then FACE TO FACE:

now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I AM KNOWN.

When this great canvas is spread across the sky, and this sermon begins to record up yonder, and this day has to be brought in, your picture will be standing there on God's big television screen. You stood for Christ.


When I will be called to stand before my nail-scarred Saviour and Kinsman Redeemer face to face, then I see all my predestinated works and deeds transferred from the “unsealed” Lamb’s Book of Live onto that big screen of the sky for the many millions to see. Then it will all fall into place, then I will know everything of myself as I have been known by Almighty God since before the foundation of the world when He “JUDGED” me to be good enough to be a part of His Bride. I will look into those same eyes which we see in that 1963 photo of that 28 miles high cloud, and I will see His lips move and hear Him say: “Well done my good and faithful servant, enter into the joys of the Lord.” That will be the time and place for me to stand in MY LOT, and only the Lord Jesus can help you personally to be part of it, and stand present in your lot on that day.

May there not be one person here be missing on that day of the Rapture. May we be so filled with the love of God and the Spirit of God until the Holy Spirit will catch us away with the waiting, or even if we shall rest in our lot. As You said to Daniel, "Go your way, Daniel, for you shall rest. But at that day you'll stand in YOUR LOT."

735-244 QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS -- JEFF.IN -- COD -- 62-0527

Daniel, that elected one that had overcome. And He said, "Close up the Book, Daniel, for thou shall rest in thy lot. But when the Prince shall come, which will stand for the people, thou shall stand in that lot." Here it is. Daniel, this prophet of God, saw the end time coming. And He said, "Daniel, you'll stand in your lot at THAT DAY." And here he was, come forth; not all of Israel, but the BRIDE TYPE of Israel. Now, the rest of Israel don't come forth until the general resurrection.

60 HOW.CAN.I.OVERCOME -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0825M

But, when, this great Prince came, Christ, the One that Daniel saw. That great warrior, Daniel, in the midst of all the troubles and things like that, and the great... Where, if we would had time, could have referred to him. Yet, he laid in the dust of the earth. He said, "Thou shall rest in thy lot that day, but, Daniel, you'll stand again."


And it come from ADAM all the way down through all the apostles, and prophets, and everything else, and nobody was found. Now, what about that? Nobody in heaven, nobody on earth, nobody that ever lived... Elijah was standing there. Moses was standing there. All the apostles were standing there of--of all the ones that had died, all the holy men, Job, the sages. EVERYONE was standing there, and nobody was worthy even to look at the Book, let alone take It and BREAK THE SEALS.


From Adam all the way down, there are Bride members from all ages since the fall, from Adam to the last one. EVERYONE, that includes the very last one who will come in soon at the end of the seventh church age. This quote cannot pertain to the March 1963 Sealsopening, that is as plain as a pikestaff. ALL those who are foreseen and predestinated as overcomer of Satan’s deceptions, they are recorded in the Lamb’s book of Life, they make up the Bride. It is obvious that Israel has many “BRIDE type” believers, and Daniel is certainly one of them, as Brother Branham tells us in these quotes. He will stand in his LOT at that day, I am looking forward to meet him there on that great day when our full redemption will be finalized.

Look at what Paul said in the Book of Hebrews, 11th chapter. Said, "They were sawed asunder, pulled apart; wandered about, in sheepskins and goatskins, and was in desert, and destitute and so forth; lives that this world is not worthy of." There you are. That life is worthy of the Gospel. How is MINE AND YOURS going to stand in the Day of Judgment, with MEN LIKE THAT?


Oh, some glorious DAY when YOU STAND upon the earth again, it'll be said, "Was not it written in the songs, 'YOUR REDEMPTION draweth near.'" When You was here the first time, You said, "Was it written by David in the songs, these certain things?" And when we think of that song, "There is going to be a meeting in the air," where ALL the PROPHETS and the REDEEMED and little David and Moses and all the PATRIARCHS will be present there, then we'll say, "Was it written, in the song that we would see this and the REDEEMED OF THE AGES shall rejoice TOGETHER."


E-69 When we rally there with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, those who were heirs of the promise, looking forward to us NOT TO FAIL, for without us they cannot be MADE PERFECT... And how they're depending on us this morning. Let's not fail. Keep your anchor in Christ.

LUKE 13:28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob,

and ALL the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.

29 And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God.

30 And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.

And she said, "Good bye." And I said, "Are you going?" I said, "Look, on that morning," I said, "so we'll be able to get together now," I said, "i--if... On that morning, I want you to go to the East side of the gate," and I said, "I want you to stand there. And when...?... It'll be terrible DOWN HERE." I said, "If--if I die before He comes, I will be sleeping out there." I said, "We'll get together. But IF I'M somewhere ON THE FIELD and be TAKEN UP," I said, "you go there and wait for the children, and stand there by the side of the gate. And then when you see Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob coming in, start screaming, 'Bill, Bill, just as loud as you can." I said, "I'll answer you there."


But that was not the last time Brother Branham saw his wife Hope, she stood next to him at her own funeral, and he saw her with Sharon Rose at that mansion in Heaven, and she met and hugged him behind the curtain of time. Those of us who live long enough to see the coming of the Lord, we will be “taken up” in that translation to meet the dead in Christ at the gate yonder, not at the resurrection as most Message followers are falsely taught. Brother Branham said it will be “terrible down here,” because this will be shortly after that most devastating earthquake at the start of the 6th Seal. Then we will go in together to gather at the Throne, the living and the dead, and meet the coming Kinsman Redeemer. Verse 30 in Luke 13 confirms this sequence again, Brother Branham always connects “last first and first last” to the resurrection of the dead in Christ, which will be AFTER the gathering at the Judgment Seat of Christ, as verses 28 and 29 explain.



Coming back to Daniel 9:24, we have already placed the first 5 folds of the 6 fold purpose of the coming of the Lord. The sixth fold is “to anoint the most Holy.” Just as the man Jesus was anointed by the Spirit of God without measure at the Jordan river, as John 3:34 says, so will the Bride receive the same baptism on the day of redemption, after we have been judged individually as faultless and blameless overcomer of sin and unbelief. On that day, the Bride will become the Temple of God, she will be the most holy Temple, anointed with the fullness of God in His new Eternal THRONE which will be in the soul of every one of her members.

Now, the first THRONE was in heaven, judgment seat. The second throne was in Christ; the third throne is in MAN.


...that New Jerusalem is the most holy place, and the anointing will be upon the New Jerusalem that descends from God out of heaven, prepared as a BRIDE adorned for her husband. The anointing will be upon THEM.


130 And I will rejoice in Jerusalem,... (The KING in the THRONE on the royal majesty of the throne, the eternal THRONE and the eternal PEOPLE with an eternal joy in an eternal city. Oh, my.)

134 What was it? His people had just crowned Him King of king and Lord of Lord, coming back to His holy Temple, anointed with the Presence of God to live and to reign through the millennium with His Church. Amen. The appearing with the mighty King to take Her place at His side, the new royal ANOINTED TEMPLE... Now, the sixfold purpose of Revelations 6:1 to Revelations 19:21 is fulfilled.

We will crown the Messiah King of kings and Lord of lords when we will stand in our lot with Daniel on the day of redemption, when the bloody Lamb will come forth to open the 7 LAST Seals, which will “unseal” all the previously hidden mysteries of the vision and prophesy. That is the fifth fold, and the quotes above explain the sixth fold, when God as the Son of David will anoint and incarnate Himself into the Bride, which will then be the most holy Temple. That will finally complete the prophesy of Daniel 9:24, and we see that it perfectly fits in step by step with all the other quotes and Scriptures. At this time the most important thing for us is to make sure that we have the earnest, the down payment which is the true and genuine baptism of the Holy Ghost, or else we cannot be ready for that day.

We are predestinated with the Lamb. The Holy Spirit is our Seal. The "Earnest" means "MORE is yet to come." We only have the Earnest of It now. The Earnest is just the down payment (Oh, how beautiful.), just the down payment that holds it, and secures it, and anchors it so no one else can touch it. It's the Earnest of our ADOPTION. Amen. The Holy Spirit is now the Earnest of God in our hearts (seal), the adoption of sons waiting us at the END...


105 Now, we have the Earnest; our spirit's groaning for the FULL adoption, but now we have the Earnest of it. As we receive the Holy Spirit, It is the Earnest of our complete ADOPTION or COMPLETE SALVATION. Oh, how beautiful. I just love that. All right.

EPHESIANS 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation:

in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of PROMISE,

14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.

We just got the earnest; that's the down payment of the com... What will it be when WE SEE HIM and get the full value of His redemption?


What will be the full value of His redemption, which we get at that day when we SEE HIM? The present baptism with the Holy Spirit that we have since the day of Pentecost is only the earnest, the down payment of more to come. That “more to come” will be the same baptism that the Lord Jesus received at the Jordan, the full baptism of God, after we have been confirmed and rewarded as overcomer of sin and unbelief, and be found as a virginal Bride by the same Judge Who sentenced the bodies of adulterous Eve and Adam to death. On that day, each messenger of each age will present his converts as a chased virgin to the Bridegroom.

2 CORINTHIANS 11:2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused

you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.

Paul said, "I am jealous over you (His church) with godly jealous, for I espouse you." There you are; that's got it. That's it. "For I espouse you, ENGAGE you to Christ as a chaste virgin." Now, if that was true then on that day, he said (them, the people said to me), said, "Jesus will come to you, and you will present us to Him, a chaste virgin." Judged by the Word that you preached to them. And, look, if I preach to you just what Paul preached to his church, if his group gets in ours will too...

MATTHEW 20:23a And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized

with the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my left...

EPHESIANS 3:19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that YE

might be filled with ALL the FULNESS of God.

In Colossians 1:19 and 2:9, Paul explains that all the fullness of God dwells in the man Jesus. In Ephesians 3:19, he says that YE, the Bride, might be filled with ALL the fullness of God, and in Matthew 20:23 the Lord Jesus Himself confirms that we will be baptized with the same baptism as He was baptized with. Brother Branham explains that soon the Holy Spirit will leave the earth and go back into the body of Jesus from which it came on the day of Pentecost. Then Satan will be cast out as explained in Revelation 12:9-10, and he will incarnate himself into the false prophet. Then the Holy Spirit in Jesus will come down to all the gathered saints of all ages to fully redeem us, and then He, God, will incarnate Himself into His Bride as explained in the next quotes.

Then later, when the devil is cast out, he's INCARNATE then with the devil. Three stages: the first he's a devil to begin with, a spirit of the devil; then he becomes a false prophet, teacher of a false doctrine; next thing he comes as the very devil himself incarnate. See? There he is. And at the same time that this devil falls out of heaven and becomes incarnate in a man, the Holy Spirit goes up and comes down INCARNATE Man. Amen.

When Jesus INCARNATES Himself in His people, the VERY LIFE that was in Christ is in this person.

First, to express Hisself completely, God in Christ. Second, to have the preeminences, by this, in His Church, which is His Body, the Bride, till He could have the preeminence to express Himself THROUGH THEM. All right.


These quotes speak for themselves, that great Spirit of the self-existing One, that great fountain of ALL wisdom Who has no beginning and no end, He will divide Himself to take His Throne in the hearts of ALL the gathered saints, the hundreds of millions judged and verified as faultless and blameless Bride-members of all ages. Inside our Theophany bodies, our souls will become the third Throne of God for all Eternity, God and the soul of every individual saint will merge and be welded together as one unit. As Jesus said: “I and my Father are one…” so will we become one with the Father on that day, to make up the whole predestinated family of God.

Because He is Father God, and He made a man an amateur god, so He isn't self-existence any more; He exists with His FAMILY. Amen. Elah, Elah, Elohim... Now, now He is Jehovah, "Jehovah" meaning the "One Who exists with His FAMILY."

1 CORINTHIANS 15:27 For he hath put ALL THINGS under his feet. But when he saith all things are

put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.

28 And when ALL things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him

that put all things under him, that God may be ALL IN ALL.

Jesus said that ALL that the Father has given Him, ALL who God had foreseen in His mind before the foundation of the world to be His Bride, all of them will come unto Him. That will be soon completed. When the last sheep has come into the fold, then “ALL THINGS have been subdued” unto Jesus. Then at His second coming, Jesus the last Adam will gather ALL of His Bride together, the living and the dead before the Throne, and He will judge and confirm and reward us as faultless and blameless overcomer of sin and unbelief according to the “unsealed” and openly displayed evidence which is recorded in the Lamb’s Book of Life. At the Judgment in Genesis 3, the first Adam failed to justify himself, and the deeds of his Bride before God, which brought death upon the whole human race.

ROMANS 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin;

and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

1 CORINTHIANS 1: 8 Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be BLAMELESS in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

But when the Bride of the second Adam will be confirmed to be blameless before God, then that curse of death will be lifted individually from each and every one, because the dead in Christ cannot rise as long as that curse is still in effect. Then the Son Jesus will subject Himself with His redeemed Bride altogether unto the Father, that Almighty God will be the ALL in ALL. THE ALL is that great self-existing Spirit Who was by Himself BEFORE the beginning of anything else. Everything that exists is secondarily, because it was first a thought in the mind of God, which is that fountain of ALL wisdom and knowledge. That is why He is the FATHER of everything, or the ALL, because everything originated in His mind. Then God, the ALL, will incarnate Himself into ALL the members of the Bride, to be the ALL in ALL.

And God, at that DAY, "The Kingdom be given over to the Father; He might be ALL-and-ALL." "While he's yet speaking, I'll hear." David, Christ, David sitting on the Throne, the King over the whole human race. "And while they're yet thinking, I'll know what they're thinking about. Before they speak, I'll answer them.


And Jesus will not be on His Father's throne, He'll be on His throne. And the Father will hover over the Son, which the Father and Son will be One. "And while they are yet speaking, I'll answer. Before they can think, I'm thinking for them." That's right. And Jesus will commit a perfect, perfect age to a--the perfect living God, that He has redeemed and give over to the Father.

1046-237 QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS.2 -- JEFF.IN -- COD -- 64-0823E

These quotes tell us that God as Son of David on His Throne in our hearts will do all the thinking, and all the talking, and direct every move of the body. That means that every thought we will have will be a divine Revelation, and every word we speak will be infallible truth, and every move of the body will be an act of God. All we have to do is to be in total obedience and submission to the One on His Throne inside our souls, just as Jesus said that He does and says nothing but what the Father in Him tells Him to say or do. Brother Branham says that you have no thoughts coming, we do not act according to what we hear or see, or taste, feel or smell. Imagination will have no more influence on us, we will be continuously conscious of God’s presence, and there will be nothing to reason about. Memory will not count anymore because the “I am that I am” from the burning bush will be ever present inside of us, and all our affection is for Him and Him alone.

Up to this time, our souls receive what comes through the 5 senses into the body, and by the 5 inlets to the spirit. Our previous carnal and worldly spirit has been replaced by the Holy Spirit to filter out all the evil and worldly deceptions, and keep the inflow into the body and the spirit in line with the Word of God. At our full redemption, the spirit will be replaced by the Theophany body. And after the incarnation of God into our souls, and after we come back and have picked up the glorified body, the new unit will be complete.

1 CORINTHIANS 11:3 But I would have you know, that the head of every MAN is Christ;

and the head of the WOMAN is the man; and the head of Christ is GOD.

At that time, this Scripture will not be relevant anymore. Brothers and Sisters will be absolutely equal, every saint will be personally instructed and directed from the inside, no orders or influence from anyone else, not even from the man Jesus. God the ALL will do all the leading Himself from His Throne IN ALL, men or woman, He will be the one and only head. God as the SON OF MAN vindicated this through the man Jesus, He was the true witness of that at His first coming. During the church ages He was, and still is the SON OF GOD as the Intercessor on the Mercy Seat, and as a leader and teacher in the form of the Holy Ghost. At the day of our full redemption, He will become the SON OF DAVID incarnated in His Bride to become the commander of all our thinking, speaking and actions for all Eternity.

ISAIAH 55:4 Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people.

Now, "His voice," or this Being that was standing there looking like this, Christ in His Church, as the Bride and Christ BEING ONE, like husband and wife is one; the Church and Christ being MOLDED TOGETHER with one Person, the same Holy Spirit. And the things that Christ did, the Church does also. Do you see it? That beautiful Church there in holiness, in power, in majesty, with seeing visions, signs, wonders, everything just like HE DID, here it is on earth; giving all praise to God, saying, "I can do nothing except the Father shows Me; but He showed Me, and here it is." And they come see these things go to taking place. Now, Christ molded INTO ONE.

... and the voice... of many waters... Many people, not just the one; it was the whole Church, the Seven Churches molded together as one great ransomed Body of the Lord.


What powerful quotes, the Voice of many waters speaking in absolute unity! How else could it be when each one of this hundreds of millions strong body is directed in thought, words and deeds by the same person of Almighty God? If there would be any disagreement in that body, it would be like God disagree with Himself, which is not possible. Satan does that, but not God. Then, after the baptism with the fullness of God, then we come back to earth to pick up the glorified bodies. Now we know the sequence of events, we the living saints will one day hear that clear trumpet sound of Revelation 4:1, calling us to come up hither. We will drop this present robe of flesh and enter the waiting Theophany body to be translated somewhere behind the curtain of time to meet all the dead saints of all ages before the Throne. Then Christ will leave the Mercy Seat and come down to judge and fully redeem and reward us according to our righteous deeds which are recorded in the Lamb’s Book of life. Then God will incarnate Himself into His Bride with the baptism of His fullness, the same baptism which Jesus received at the river Jordan. Then all together we come back to earth again to pick up our glorified bodies.

And, then, when this robe of flesh is dropped, there is a natural body, theophany, a body not made with hands, neither born of a woman, that we go to. Then that body returns back and picks up the glorified body.


But let us have all of our deeds DONE RIGHT, because they're in a BOOK, a record that is to be played at the day of the JUDGMENT.


He said, "Then when Jesus comes, then we're... And He judges you for your ministry, THEN we go back to earth and TAKE UP BODIES." (Well, I--I thought about it then; that's exactly the Scripture.) Said, "Then we go back to earth and take up bodies; then we eat. We don't eat here, neither do we sleep." Said, "We eat down there. But we go back to the earth."

He said, "Yes, Paul stands too with his group that he preached to." I said, "I've preached the same message he did." And them millions raised their hands and said, "We are resting on that." There you are (See?), right there. Yes. Said, "THEN together we'll go BACK to the earth for a BODY that can eat, and we drink, and live together through all the ceaseless ages there." That's the COMING of the LORD.

213 THE.TEN.VIRGINS.AND... -- JEFF.IN -- 60-1211M

Brother Branham says “That is the COMING of the LORD,” which means that is the SEVENTH SEAL for the Bride. It starts with the summons for the living saints to be translated or raptured up to the Throne in Heaven, and it ends with the resurrection of the dead in Christ, and the changing of our bodies. Some will say that Brother Branham says that the seventh Seal is not revealed, that is true, there are great mysteries hid under that Seal which can only be revealed when we actually get there. But Brother Branham told us when and how to GET THERE that we not miss those revelations on that day, and that is what this chapter is all about.

Although an Angel directed Philip to him, but the germ of Life had to come through the BODY: Philip. Oh, brother, now we're on the line. Where did the germ come from? Through the Angel? The Angel showed him where to go. A Angel is a messenger; here's a son. Philip had the Germ, the Message, the Word. That's how a child can be born. Philip laid his hands upon him. Philip baptized him in the Name of Jesus Christ. There come forth the Spirit of God. Sure. Now, the germ had to come from the body. What body? Christ's body. Correct. And Philip was a member of the BODY. Now, listen, the same thing took place in Acts 10:48. Peter was on the housetop. An Angel directed him to Cornelius' house, but where did the Word come from? The body. Oh, I feel pretty good, feel like traveling on. An Angel come and said, "Don't worry; don't call nothing unclean; just go on; don't think nothing." And while Peter spake these words, not the Angel, not the cardinal, while Peter spake these words... What? He was the body. He had the Word. The Word took hold. Oh, brother. Whew. Umph. Oh, my. Angel directed it, but the LIFE come through the BODY of Christ.


His great, glorious Presence shall strike the earth. "He cometh in clouds." Oh, I love that. "Clouds," there will be wave after wave of His glory will come across the earth, and the RESURRECTION of the saints shall come. When that blessed Holy Spirit that's lived in their hearts, and they died with their corpses laying there, and the tear stains over their cheeks, and things like that, they're placed out here in a graveyard. A great wave of that same Spirit, and a "whoossh," wave after wave. "He that was LAST will be FIRST, and he that was FIRST will be LAST." How can it be that way? That's the order of the resurrection. I won't know nobody in the generation before me or the generation after me. I'll know those in the generation of this. And every generation will come successfully, right as it went down. "They which were last will be first." Sure, it has to be. See? I'll know my people. The next fellow, my dad will know his people; his grandfather, his people, ON DOWN like that. Wave after wave, after wave, after wave, and the saints arising from everywhere, won't that be wonderful. Amen.


Just as the Lord Jesus was the BODY to call Lazarus from his grave, so the BODY of Christ will call the dead from their graves. When we come back to earth, we the living saints will enter our bodies again which we left behind when we were translated up to the Throne. We will be the BODY at that time to start the resurrection, because all the others will be in their Theophany Spirit-bodies. We were the LAST ones to be saved, but we will be the FIRST ones to call the dead who we know, and when they have entered their glorified bodies, then they will speak and call those believers who they knew, and the generation before them. It will continue like that like dominoes right through all the ages, till at the end someone will call Abel who was the FIRST one to die, and he will be the LAST one to be resurrected. That is how the last will be first, and the first will be last. Then after all the dead have been resurrected, then our bodies will be changed and glorified like the bodies of the resurrected saints. But before we are changed, all the other saints of all ages will see us in this body in which we reached the full stature of the perfect man, and they will know that without us getting into that perfect state, they could not have been perfected. We still have a very steep hill to climb, to get into that lofty condition.

As Hebrews 11 says, "All these who wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins, and was destitute, and all these things that they done, yet was not made perfect without US." And the Church in this day, that's received the Token, of the baptism of the Holy Spirit, that the Blood has been shed and that the Holy Ghost is upon the Church; without us, then, they cannot RAISE. But they're depending ON US, for God promised He would have It, and somebody is going to be there. I don't know who it's going to be, but somebody is going to receive It. The only one thing I'm responsible, is to preach It.

88 TOKEN -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0901M

Yes, somebody is going to be there, who will go all the way to the full stature of the perfect man. In this last quote, Brother Branham sounds as if he himself can hardly believe that is possible. But according to the Message and the Bible, there has to be at least one from every nation which would amount to about 200. Right through the Message, Brother Branham mentions that from all the millions who claim to be Christians, ONE will make it at the end. That would amount to about 2 400 souls, a shocking small number. No matter how big or small that number might be, the door is still wide open for everybody whosoever will. And if this chapter will help some believers to get there, then I will be very happy because the purpose of putting all this together has been accomplished. May God richly bless you as you sincerely consider these vital facts of our beloved Message.
