Every true Bible believer loves Genesis 1, the creation story step by step till God finally made man in His own Image and likeness to rule over His whole creation. Every botanical plant has life in it to make them grow, and to bring forth of their own kind. Fish and birds, and animals also have that life, plus a spirit with memory, affection and conscience etc. But when God made man, He added the soul to the spirit, and that soul makes the man a person, a free moral agent with thinking faculties to make his own choice, and to have responsibilities towards his Maker.

GENESIS 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let

THEM have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the

cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he HIM;

male and female created he THEM.

So the first thing He created... Now, some of you want to know about my Genesis story; God said, "Let us make man." The first thing He created was Angels to worship Him, then He become God. Then when He said, "Let us make man after our own image," what kind of a man did He make? Spirit man; then when He made that man, He give him control. Then He made man out of the dust of the earth; then he fell.


The first manlike creatures which God created was Angels, they have celestial spirit bodies. Like God, all the Angels are males, there is no such a thing as a female Angel. When God created man, He also made him a spirit man like the Angels, but He put into that first man a masculine and a feminish spirit. In his spirit body, Adam was both male and female, that is why the man Adam was first referred to as HIM and THEM, HIM in his body and THEM in the spirit. Then God made an earthly body, and He put the spirit man Adam into that terrestrial body, and he became a living soul. Then God took a rib out of ADAM to make another body out of it, and He separated the feminish part of Adam's spirit and put it into the woman, and she became a person of her own.

God, did you notice in Genesis 1:27, He created man male and female, created He them. Now, the man was a--a--both male and female when it come to being in the spirit of feminish and masculine. Then God took from his side a--a rib. Did you notice, the BODY PART was a byproduct, but NOT the SPIRIT? The body part of the woman was a byproduct; after the creation had been finished, God took from the side of Adam a rib and made a woman. But not the spirit, the spirit was part of Adam, for he was both man and woman, fem--spiritually speaking both masculine and feminish.

19 ONENESS -- JEFF.IN -- 62-0211

Man was created in God's image (God is a Spirit), so he's a spirit man. Then when he become flesh man, ANIMAL flesh on the earth, He is--He is showing, portraying here the BRIDE. He never taken and made another being, but He took part of Adam, the original creation, took from him, a rib from his side; and took the feminish spirit out of Adam, left the masculine spirit in there, and placed it in the feminish part. Therefore, part of his spirit, part of his body; flesh of his flesh, bone of his bone; Word of His Word, Life of His Life, and that's the way the Bride is to Christ!


"The BODY part was a byproduct, but not the SPIRIT!" What an amazing explanation, the spirit of a believing Sister was also in the original creation, just like the spirit of a believing Brother. In principle, this creation story is repeated in the redemption story, to be saved we have to go through the same stages. God made His own Word an earthly body called Jesus, in 1 Corinthians 14:45 and 47 He is also referred to as the last or second Adam. Then the Spirit of God came into Him, God was made flesh which made Jesus the Christ. Then on the cross, as the second Adam fell asleep, the Roman centurion pierced His side at His ribs, and water, blood and Spirit came out of him. Through water baptism, and being cleansed by the blood, we receive the Holy Spirit which was with God from the beginning as John 1:1 tells us. For the Bride, the Token is the Holy Spirit which comes from God, it is not a byproduct.

The Spirit left Him, in the Garden of Gethsemane. He had to die, a man. Remember, friends, He didn't have to do that. That was God. God anointed that flesh, which was human flesh. And He didn't... If He'd a went up there, as God, He'd have never died that kind of death; can't kill God. But He didn't have to do it. But, remember, He went there with you in Him. See, God had never separated the Bride from the Groom, yet. So when God looked down upon the body of Christ, He saw both male and female. It was all redeemed in that ONE BODY. See? They are one, same, same Word. The same Word, spoke of the Groom, speaks of the Bride.


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


The fullness of God, the masculine Father part of the Spirit left His Throne in Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane. But the feminish part of that Spirit, the Word or Logos, that Son part came out of Him when he gave up the Ghost. Jesus said that all the Father has given Him will come unto Him, and, spiritually speaking, we were all in Him when He was crucified. By Spirit baptism we are part of that same Spirit which called us into His Body, the body of Christ right through the 7 church ages, till the last sheep has come into the fold. That baptism is the "downpayment," or the earnest as Ephesians 1:13+14 and 4:30 tells us, till the day of redemption.

On that day, after we have been judged individually as holy, faultless and blameless overcomer of sin and unbelief, then the masculine Father part of God's Spirit will come into us with the same baptism as Jesus had at the Jordan river. He will come in and abide on His third and Eternal THRONE in the soul of each Bride member. And from there He will direct each saint from the inside, then God will be the ALL in ALL of His Bride members, as 1 Corinthians 15:28 says. He will be the "Commander" (Isaiah 55:4) of every thought, and every word which will be spoken, and every act done in the glorified bodies. The Throne will be inside our Theophany bodies, and the glorified bodies will be on the outside, and the feminish Spirit will willingly and obediently fulfill every commandment in Words and deeds through our Theophany bodies and the glorified bodies. How do we know that will be so? Jesus is our example, and in the Gospel of John He said:

John 4:34 Jesus saith unto them, My meat is TO DO the will of him that sent me,

and to FINISH his work.

5:30 I can of mine own self DO NOTHING: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just;

because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.

5:36 ...for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I DO,

bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.

6:38 For I came down from heaven, NOT to DO mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.

7:16 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.

8:28 Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I

am he, and that I DO nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I SPEAK these things.

9:4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day...

10:29 My Father, which gave them me, is GREATER THAN ALL; and no man is

able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.

12:49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment,

what I should say, and what I should speak.

14:28 ...I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is GREATER THAN I.

14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father IN ME? the words that I speak

unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that DWELLETH IN ME, he doeth the works.

If the words of the Lord Jesus in these Scriptures does not express a humble and totally submissive, and an entirely obedient and loving feminish spirit, then I do not know what else does. At that time, the masculine commanding Father Spirit, the fountain of all wisdom and knowledge Who has no beginning and no end, He was DWELLING IN the man Jesus on His second THRONE, as the quote above tells us. On the day of our full redemption, when the same God will incarnate Himself into all the members of his Bride to occupy His third THRONE, then those verses of Scriptures will also apply to us, to all the members of the Bride.

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

204-6 {205} THE.SECOND.SEAL -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0319

Let us go back to the creation of man in Genesis 1, when God created the man Adam in his own image, as it says, "In the image of God created He HIM; male and female created He THEM." After Satan had deceived a third of the Angels, and was cast out of Heaven with them, he tried to do the same to Adam and Eve, and finally to all mankind. He knew that the prosperity and security of the whole creation was based on God's condition that everything must bring forth of it's own kind, the crossing of anything with another kind would tear down everything. Knowing that the seed of the serpent could be mixed with Eve, Satan waited for a convenient time to do that evil deed. He knew if he could persuade her, she would fall from the image and likeness of God. What does it mean to be in the image and likeness of God? It means to possess the 7 virtues, which make up the stature of the perfect man.

II PETER 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises:

that by these ye might be partakers of the DIVINE nature, having escaped the corruption

that is in the world through lust.

5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your FAITH VIRTUE; and to virtue KNOWLEDGE;

6 And to knowledge TEMPERANCE; and to temperance PATIENCE; and to patience


7 And to godliness BROTHERLY KINDNESS; and to brotherly kindness CHARITY.

8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor

unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Someone might ask, how can we say that the image and likeness of God is the same as the 7 virtues in 2 Peter 1:4 to 8? We will see just now that the story which the serpent told Eve is sevenfold, and each part fits perfectly with the seven virtues, and exactly in the same order as the inspired Apostle Peter wrote it in the Bible. The serpent had no soul, because he was an animal, therefore he could not have made up that story. Just like God uses His Prophets to bypass their mental faculties to speak through them, Satan incarnated himself in the serpent to used the serpents tongue and lips to deceive Eve. Here is what he said to her:

GENESIS 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had

made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

Our FAITH is entirely built on the accuracy and truthfulness of the Word of God, FAITH does never question it, that FAITH is the foundation for a true believer. Satan through the serpent started to chip away on Eve's FAITH, quoting God's Word to her, but putting a question mark to it, which made it questionable and uncertain. In the next two verses, Eve is telling him what their Message from God is, and that they must stay with that, or else they would die.

2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall

not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

VIRTUE means sanctification, which comes by being washed by the water of the Word, to get all the basics right and DO IT according to the Bible. Eve did not need that washing, at that stage she was still perfect as she confirmed in verses 2 and 3, and she affirmed that she possessed that VIRTUE.

4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall NOT surely DIE:

We must realize that Eve did not know what a lie was, she had never experienced anything evil. Then the serpent told her a completely new story she never heard before, and he tried to explain very positively that they would NOT die. That was the time that her FAITH and VIRTUE crumbled, she started to believe something different to what God said. Then Satan in and through the serpent continued to deceive her, he said:

5 For God doth KNOW...

Now he tells her of the KNOWLEDGE of God, of which she knows nothing about. He actually insinuates that God says something in one place, but thinks and knows different to what He says. With other words, what God thinks and knows, and what He says is not always the same, it can be different. That is exactly what Satan is doing all the time, but here he tells Eve that God is really doing that. Then he continues:

...that in the day ye eat thereof...

To spiritually "eat" of the tree of Life produces the fruits of the Spirit, which according to Galatians 5:22 is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, TEMPERANCE, which is the fourth virtue. But the serpent offered the unsuspecting Eve the fruits of the wrong tree, which according to Galatians 5:19 is adultery, fornication, uncleanness etc., and that is exactly what this satanic deception led up to.

...that in the day ye eat thereof...

God told Adam and Eve that they should be fruitful and multiply, but He did not tell them where and when it would start. They met God every day, but they had to wait PATIENTLY for a specific "Coming of the Lord" to anoint them to start the multiplication, and to tell them how it must be done. In the sermon "The spoken Word is the original Seed," Brother Branham said that if they would have had the PATIENCE to wait for the right time, God would have brought them together, and by the anointed spoken Word of Adam it would have produced the first child, which would have been Jesus. But the serpent told Eve they do not have to wait for God any longer, he can give her this understanding straight away, right now. That was the first false Parousia teaching.

...then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods...

The next virtue in the stature of the perfect man is GODLINESS, and our Prophet said that means "to be like God." After having perverted every one of the first 5 virtues, Satan promised Eve to be like God, but he actually meant for her to be one of his subjects, it is him who wants to be like God, as Isaiah 14:14 says.

...knowing good and evil.

Hebrews 5:13+14 tells us that those who have grown out of the baby stage, and can take the strong meat of the Word of God because they are of full age, which means they have come right up to the stature of the perfect man, they through experience and discernment will know the difference between good and evil. Nothing evil will be able to penetrate that BROTHERLY KINDNESS at the gatherings of those who possess those 7 virtues. Satan offered that knowledge of that "good" part of the virtue to Eve, knowing full well that what he promised her was outright evil, as she found out soon after that encounter with him.

6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to

the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did

eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked;

and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

Speaking through the serpent, we see that Satan perverted all of the 7 virtues, one by one exactly in the same order as they are written in 2 Peter 1:5 to 7, and Eve fell for it. Adam would have known better, he could not have been deceived like Eve was, but when he did partake of the act in the flesh, then they both fell from being in the image and likeness of God, and that is what the fall is all about. But God rich in Mercy started the plan of Redemption immediately, even so He sentenced both of them to death in the flesh. But before God chased Adam and Eve out of the garden of Eden, He wrapped them in a bloody sheepskin, and that covering speaks of a Redeemer Who will come someday to redeem all the predestinated believers back to that original state, as they were before the fall.



When Eve fell pregnant of the serpent, and Adam did partake in the same act of the flesh to save his wife, then she conceived 2 sons, and they named them Cain and Abel. Both of them worshiped God even so Cain was born of the seed of the serpent. When they came of age, the difference between them was that Abel was a spiritual man who could receive revelations of God, but Cain was carnal who could not go that far in his worship of God. Therefore at a convenient time, because of jealousy and hatred, Cain killed Abel, and God cast him out and send him to the land of Nod. Then Eve conceived again and Seth was born, and God strictly separated the lineage of Seth who were called the sons and daughters of God, and the lineage of Cain who were called the sons and daughters of man. God made it very clear that He wanted the 2 lineages to stay apart, they must not mix.

GENESIS 5:21 And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah:

22 And Enoch walked with God AFTER he begat Methuselah three hundred years,

and begat sons and daughters:

23 And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years:

24 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.

That commandment lasted about 500 years, then some of the sons of God broke it because they could not resist the pretty woman of the sons of man. And as the Bible tells us, they took them to be their wives. This must have started at the time of Enoch already, because God warned Enoch that He would destroy the world by a flood for this sin. The Bible says that Enoch walked with God AFTER he begat Methuselah, after he got this revelation from God of the coming Judgment to destroy the world by water. The Wikipedia encyclopedia says:

Methuselah ... "Man of the dart/spear", or alternatively "his death shall bring judgment"[1]) is the man in the Hebrew Bible reported to have lived the longest.[2] Extra-biblical tradition maintains that he died on the 11th of Cheshvan of the year 1656AM (Anno Mundi, after Creation), at the age of 969, seven days before the beginning of the Great Flood.

Enoch got the revelation from the Lord that when his son dies, then God will send that Judgment, and he named his son "His death shall bring Judgment" as a warning to the people. The Bible confirms that Methuselah died in the same year when the flood came, at the age of 969 years. He was the oldest man who ever lived on earth, his life was extended because God was longsuffering, the flood was long overdue.

Jesus Christ said Himself, "As it was in the days of Noah..." And God was longsuffering, not willing that any should perish, was longsuffering, waiting, waiting, holding off the wrath, waiting, see if somebody else would, and waiting, waiting, waiting. "As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the coming of the Son of man." God's longsuffering, waiting to get His church in condition. What is it? What is it? Instead of getting in condition, we're getting farther away all the time.


The flood was supposed to drown and kill all sin and uncleanness, how was it possible that sin continued after the flood, and worse than before? This question is on the mind of many believers, the Prophet said:

Now, Noah and his sons which come out, Ham, Shem, and Japheth, come out in the righteous line. How did the seed ever get over? The seed come over in the ark, just like it did in the beginning through the woman, their wives. They carried the seed of Satan through the ark, just as Eve packed the seed of Satan to give birth to Cain, through the woman.

27-3 THE.SERPENT'S.SEED -- JEFF.IN -- 58-0928E

After the flood, after a few generations the perversion of the Word of God set in again. The Bible speaks of Nimrod, the mighty hunter who founded Babel, and also a new religion in which he and his wife were worshiped as gods. He built the tower of Babel with the idea that if God ever send a flood again, they would run up the tower and be save above the water. Then God came down to confound their language, and the people stopped building the tower, and they were scattered in all directions to eventually settle all over the face of the earth. But they took their idols and false gods with them, which caused the whole earth to be covered in idolatry. According to "Hislop's two Babylons," those babylonian perversions are still around us, the biggest "Christian" church is full of it.

GENESIS 12:1 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and

from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:

2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great;

and thou shalt be a blessing:

3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee

shall all families of the earth be blessed.

We understand that the "great nation" mentioned in verse 2 was speaking of Israel, the promise coming through Abraham's natural seed which produced Isaac, and of him and his wife Rebekah Jacob was born, and the seeds of the 12 sons of Jacob produced the nation of Israel, which was to be established in the land which God mentioned to Abraham in verse 1. Then according to verse 3, the promise would be extended to all the earth, to every nation to call every predestinated true believer, all those who are scattered all over the earth to which our forefathers were dispersed after they left Babel. God told Abraham indirectly in type what will bring about the change of the promise from Israel to the Gentiles, and when it will take place.

GENESIS 22:13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind

him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram,

and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of HIS SON.

14 And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovah jireh: as it is said to this day,

In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen.

15 And the angel of the LORD called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time,

16 And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, for because thou hast done

this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son:

17 That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as

the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed

shall possess the gate of his enemies;

18 And in THY SEED shall ALL the NATIONS of the EARTH be blessed; because

thou hast obeyed my voice.

God told Abraham that in "THY SEED" all the nations will be blessed, and Paul tells us in Galatians 3:16 that SEED is singular, it is Christ. He is the spiritual Seed of Abraham because of Abraham's unwavering faith, and we are in Christ by the baptism of the Holy Spirit which circumcises our hearts, which means that all those fleshly desires, and lust and all those sinful cravings will be cut off by the sharp sword of the Word, and He gives us a new birth instead.

He took Isaac and bound his hands. Which, we all know, in Genesis 22 here, is a type of Christ. Led him up the mountain, bound, like Jesus was led up the mountain, Mount Calvary; a type of God giving His Son, of course.


Immediately after God stopped Abraham at the last moment from killing his son Isaac, and after he had sacrificed the ram, the Angel of the Lord spoke to him out of Heaven. Why at that time, and what is it all about? As Brother Branham said many times, here in Genesis 22 Isaac represented Jesus the Messiah at the cross of Calvary, and the oath of God straight after that event was foretelling the coming of the changeover from the Old Testament to the New Testament. That Angel of the Lord was the Angel of the Covenant Who swore by Himself, He is none other than Almighty God Himself, as also Paul tells us.

HEBREWS 6:13 For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could

swear by no greater, he sware by himself,

14 Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee.

God is showing here in type that after the death of His Son, the Gospel blessings would be taken from the Jews by the Angel of the Lord, and will go over to the Gentiles, to ALL the nations of the earth. That took place 1905 years later, in AD 33. Then came the 7 church ages, but now we are living at the end-time when these blessings will come to an end, and then they will go back to Israel again. Soon that mighty Angel Who promised these blessings to Abraham, and swore that He will do it, He will soon come on the scene and swear again that time for the multiplication of saints, and the blessings for all the nations shall be NO MORE. That will wind up the 7 church ages, as Revelation 10:5 shows us.

REVELATION 10:5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth

lifted up his hand to heaven,

6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things

that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things

which are therein, that there should be TIME NO LONGER: 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."


After Israel came out of Egypt, and was established as a nation, they wanted to live by God's law. Most of those commandments are actually like a schoolmaster (Galatians 3:24) to teach the people obedience, they are types and shadows and "carnal ordinances imposed on them until the time of reformation," as Paul explains in Hebrews 9:10. Nevertheless, there were great scholars and wise men among them with unsurpassed spiritual wisdom, and great kings and Prophets who partly expressed and acted out in words and deeds what the Messiah was going to be.

ISAIAH 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin

shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

MICAH 5:2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the

thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be

ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.

GENESIS 49:10 The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between

his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.

HOSEA 11:1 When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt.

ISAISH 11:1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and

a Branch shall grow out of his roots:

MALACHI 3:1 Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me:

and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the

covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.

ISAIAH 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed

me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to

proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

ZECHARIAH 9:9b ...behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation;

lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.

ISAIAH 53:7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought

as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.

PSALM 22:16 For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have

inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.

PSALM 16:10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine

Holy One to see corruption.

PSALM 110:1 The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until

I make thine enemies thy footstool.

As Noah, Moses, David, reflected the coming of this perfect Bridegroom...


Some scholars claim that there are over 350 Old Testament prophesies that speak of Jesus, like these few above. Then at the end of all those predictions, He secretly appeared when He was born in Bethlehem of the house of David, as the Prophets of old had prophesied. Among other things, He came to fully redeem and restore man again to the image and likeness of God, or to the stature of the perfect man as Brother Branham puts it, as Adam and Eve were before the fall. Before He could do that, He had to get Himself into that high and lofty condition.



After the Angels of Heaven and the shepherds did worship the newborn baby at the stable, His parents brought Him to the Temple on the 8th day for circumcision. Simeon was directed by the Spirit to the baby Jesus, and he blessed Him and prophesied. We are living in the days right now when this prophesy is about to be fulfilled. The evening light of the seventh and last church age is fast fading out, and then the Gospel will go over to the Jews again for the glory of the people of Israel, to fulfill the last portion of Daniel's 70th week.

LUKE 2:30 For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,

31 Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;

32 A light to lighten the Gentiles, AND the glory of thy people Israel.

About 2 years later, the wise men arrived from the East, and the star which directed them all the way led them to the house where He and His parents were. They worshiped Him, and gave Him presents.

It speaks perfectly. They brought gold, "Deity." They brought frankincense, "service." And they brought myrrh, for His "death." When He was a Baby, amen, showing that Deity would be put to death in the flesh, amen, that it might redeem fallen man.


When He was 12 years old, most likely in preparation of His Bar Mitzvah celebration the following year, Josef with his family took Him with them up to the Temple at Jerusalem for the Passover feast. On the way back, they lost Him, and after 3 days they found Him in the Temple, among the religious Doctors. Here we can see the first 2 virtues, He was not interested to play with other children, he knew already who He was, because He said He must be about his Heavenly Fathers business. His FAITH was set on that and nothing else, and He obviously lived a clean life full of VIRTUES, and obediently dedicated to God.

LUKE 2:47 And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers.

The next virtue is KNOWLEDGE, and this verse tells us that He had so much of it that everybody was astonished. Verse 52 of the same chapter says that "He increased in wisdom and STATURE, and in favour with God and man." To be in favour with God and everybody on earth means He must have had the virtue of TEMPERANCE. He also had PATIENCE, because He had to wait for another 18 years till the start of His ministry.

LUKE 3:21 Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus

also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened,

22 And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice

came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.

The next virtue is GODLINESS, which means "to be like God." The incarnation of the full measure of Almighty God into the man Jesus made Him not only "like God," but in Him was and still is all the fullness of the Godhead bodily, nothing short of that. Did He have BROTHERLY KINDNESS? Because He had that virtue in abundance, He that was absolutely sinless accepted mocking, shame and torture, and the most terrible death on the cross, that billions of people could be saved. And because of His great BROTHERLY KINDNESS, I am also included. With all 7 virtues in place, and in the same order according to the Bible, the second Adam had again restored what was lost at the fall, the full stature of the perfect man, to be in the original image and likeness of God.

1 JOHN 4:16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is LOVE;

and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

But the man Jesus was also capped with the Capstone, which is love, and God Himself is that love. Jesus the man was directed in everything from the inside, from the second Throne of God which was inside His heart. The 7 virtues are 7 different manifestations of total obedience to do and to act out every commandment which comes from within the soul. Isaiah 11 confirms this, it speaks of Jesus, the Messiah.

ISAIAH 11:2 And the SPIRIT of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and

understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;

3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall NOT JUDGE

after the SIGHT of his EYES, neither reprove after the HEARING of his EARS:

Anything Jesus thought, or said or done was governed from the Throne of God. He was not influenced by what His eyes seen, or what He heard others say, or what or how He felt. Memory, reason or affection or anything else could not distract Him from being completely obedient to God.

Look at Jesus, nothing but one bundle of love. See? He was God manifested. He, God, expressed Himself through Him, no wonder miracles and things happened. His humble life, and consecrated life; to come from BEING God, to be a man here on earth, to express God through Himself. That's what made Him what He was. I've always said, "What made Jesus God, to me, was the way He humbled Himself. He was so great, and yet could be so small." See? That's right.

103 HUMBLE.THYSELF -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0714E

God said to the first Adam that they should be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth. God never intended to have just one son, He predestinated a big family to dwell in, and to reflect and to manifest all His attributes through millions of them. Romans 8:29 says that Jesus is the firstborn among MANY brethren. After the Lord Jesus was tested for 3.5 years, and after He passed every trial and overcome every demon, He came to the point in His earthly journey when He knew that He had to lay down His own life. That perfectly obedient life in His blood, made up of the seven virtues, that was to become the SEED to multiply and replenish the whole earth, to bring forth spiritually born again sons and daughters of God throughout the 7 church ages, and eventually from every nation, and kindred and tongue on earth, as we see it today in our age.

JOHN 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever

believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through

him might be saved.

Then when that blood Cell, because of sin, was pierced with a sword yonder, and broke, it freed God yonder. And He broke open the blood Cell, and washed us, and brought us into Himself by the Holy Spirit. There you are. And now we are sons of God, part of God. Deity Itself lives in every believer. Every man that's borned of the Spirit of God is a part of God.

146 HE.SWORE.BY.HIMSELF -- JEFF.IN -- 54-1212

Then that Blood Cell was broke on Calvary, was not an animal, neither was it a man. It was God's own Blood and It comes back and gives new birth.

E-44 BE.NOT.AFRAID -- RICHMOND.VA -- 61-0311

ROMANS 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell

in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

After His death on the cross, and after He ascended up to Heaven to the right hand of God with all the power over Heaven and earth, He send His Spirit down to the 120 believers who were assembled and waiting in the upper room in the Temple at Jerusalem. On that day of Pentecost, they were the first ones to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit, which is the earnest by which the true believers are sealed unto the day of our full redemption. That baptism with the life which was in the Blood of Jesus will produce the 7 virtues, and It was released when the blood cell broke at Calvary. That was not the Spirit of the fullness of God, that Spirit had left Jesus in Gethsemane, and came back again upon Him after He ascended to the Father on Easter Sunday morning. But we will receive that same baptism of that Spirit of the fullness of God on the day of our full redemption. It will be added to the earnest when God will take His third and final Throne in our hearts for all Eternity.

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


We understand that there are 7 church ages, and in Revelation chapters 2 and 3 there are 7 basic summaries of the Message from God for each age. During the 7 ages, there are 4 horse riders which oppose the believers, to try and test them just like the serpent came to Eve to deceive her. Brother Branham says that every Message produces 3 kinds of believers, unbelievers, make-believers, and true believers. Each age ends with a promise from the Lord to the true believers who He calls the "overcomer," and He promises them a reward. All those "overcomers" are waiting somewhere behind the curtain of time to receive that promised reward at the second coming of the Lord Jesus, after the last one has overcome the temptation of the pale horse rider.

The story of lies and deception which Satan told Eve through the lips of the serpent can be divided into 4 parts, and each part fits exactly with the characteristics of the 4 horse riders, and precisely in the right order. Satan started first by quoting God's message to Eve, but he put a question mark to it, he sounded as if it is questionable. That is just like the white horse rider, Brother Branham says that white means righteous, but the way he presented it made it of no affect. Like a bow without arrows, he was a bluffer like the serpent was to Eve.

Then after Eve confirmed to the serpent that they must not eat of that tree, or else they would die, Satan told her that blunt and deadly lie that they will NOT die, and that God actually thinks and knows different from what He says. That is the red horse rider all over again, the people were told that the church teaching is above the Word of God, because the "Vicar of Christ" knows better. But 68 million plus knew better than that, they would rather die than give in to those wicked lies. They preferred Eternal life of the soul to the pain in the flesh, they knew what Jesus meant in Matthew 10:28 when he said: "And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul..."

After Eve started to consider that this deadly lie could be right, Satan wanted her to EAT of that wrong tree, knowing that would bring about all the evil of Galatians 3:19-21, such as Adultery, fornication, idolatry, hatred etc. Same with the black horse rider, he did sell the spiritual food of wheat and barley for money, which degraded the Message to a low carnal standard, which will make it spiritually of no effect. That is how the Messages of Luther, Wesley and the Pentecostals lost their power, and it is the same within the Message. Telling someone about the day of our full redemption, as Brother Branham teaches it, they pull back because it would interfere with their cosy lifestyle, or the "pennys" they pay or get for some false doctrine they are addicted to. As far as we can see in the worldwide Message, this terrible "black horse" mentality is just about everywhere, on the Internet and many of the other outlets. Today the misuse of cellphones, and all these other fancy devices is a very powerful tool for the black horse rider to distract the believers from their walk with the Lord. Brother Branham would be against those gadgets as he was against Television.

He never ordained groups of men; He ordained men to PREACH the Gospel, not machinery, mechanical DEVICES, or any angelic being; it was MAN. And when He brought deliverance to the people down there, He sent a simple human being, born of a simple family in a bunch of slaves.


Satan through the serpent promised Eve that if she eats thereof, they will be like God, knowing good and evil. There is a man somewhere on the earth who will soon become that antichrist, the pale horse rider. Paul describes him, he will present himself as if he is God:

II THESSALONIANS 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come,

except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped;

so that he as GOD sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is GOD.

This man of sin will most likely succeed this present pope, and he will introduce the mark of the beast. It will be at a time when the worldwide economic system has collapsed, and his church and the World Council of Churches will be presented as a compassionate charity organization, helping everybody who will not be able to buy or sell anything. But the condition will be that they must join that confederation. At that time, the latter rain outpouring of the Holy Spirit will lift up a standard against them as Isaiah 59:19 promises, and the true believers will have come up to the virtue of Godliness, we will be "like God" by the continuous leading of the Holy Spirit. No matter how good it will look, we will know that this move of the antichrist is not good, but an evil deception.

John 17:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the

world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Let us stop blaming Eve, we could never overcome those horse rider spirits of Satan by ourselves. If it was not for our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ Who has overcome every demon for us, and give as a portion of His Holy Spirit which has already overcome, where would we be? There are 7 Spirits of God, or 7 Angels before the Throne of God. These Angels or Spirits are mentioned in Revelation 1:4, 3:1, 4:5 and 5:6, they are the same 7 Angels which appeared to the Prophet at sunset mountain. They represent the 7 virtues, and over the past 2000 years, each one of these 7 Angels was sent to anoint one of the 7 church age messengers at their time on earth. With that angelic anointing upon them, the spoken Words of each of the messengers for their age was the seed going forth to cause a "immaculate conception" to the true believers, to have that experience of the new birth which can also be called a "virgin birth," to bring forth the birth of the Theophany bodies yonder in the Spirit world. Our flesh can never ever be perfected, the new birth is entirely spiritual, the newborn baby is actually that Theophany body yonder.

GALATIANS 1:11 But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached

of me is not after man.

12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.

1 CORINTHIANS 3:6 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave theincrease.

The Apostle Paul, the messenger of the first church age made it very clear that his preaching was not influenced by any man, but came directly from Jesus Christ. He knew that he must keep that Word absolutely pure and clean from any contamination, because it was the spoken word seed for the saints of that day to conceive that seed which Paul planted for their new birth. Apollos, one of Paul's 5 fold ministry must water that seed that it can grow and express largely that virtue of FAITH, which was foreordained for that first age. This was repeated throughout the 7 church ages, for every age to reflect and demonstrate mainly one of the 7 virtues, and for the true saints to overcome the relevant satanic horse rider spirit for the age they lived in.

We find out that, during that time, I saw SEVEN Angels in a--in a form of a pyramid, that swept down and picked me up. And I was brought East, to open the Seven Seals for God. If you haven't got them... If Jesus tarries, and I... my great-grandchildren, little Paul's children, that will still be the Eternal Truth of the living God.


The true teaching of the Word of God was completely lost in the dark ages, but in the Reformation by Martin Luther preaching justification, and John Wesley sanctification, and the restoration of the gifts by the Pentecostals, the truth of the Word was gradually restored again. But those reformers left lots of loose ends, and the Message was sent to bring us back again to the original teaching of the Bible. In 1963, all those 7 Angels came down together to open the 7 written Seals of the Bible to complete the full restoration of the true Bible teachings.

So, the Message of the Seven Seals, in their closing, that's the Message of the entire Bible. The Seven Seals closes the New Testament and sealed it up. That is true. Now, we know that that is, by prophetic utterance, by scientific, and by the Word. Three has give the witness to it, that it's the Truth.

24 HE.THAT.IS.IN.YOU -- JEFF.IN -- 63-1110E

...the Angels of the Lord appeared and told about the Seven Trumpets... or the Seven Seals, that I was to return back here to Jeffersonville and preach the Seven Seals. And, there, if I've ever said anything that was inspired, it was in that. There where the Angel of the Lord met us, and the Bible become a new Bible. There It opened up and revealed all the things that the reformers and things had left out. It was the complete revelation of Jesus Christ, altogether new to us, but perfectly exactly with the Scripture. That was the Word which has always been. I was so inspired and directed.


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


Those 7 Angels represent the 7 virtues, which means that they revealed everything which is needed to bring the true saints back to the full stature of the perfect man. In that state we will have the victory over death and the grave, and we will be ready for the translation to meet the dead saints before the Throne, to take part in the second coming of the Lord Jesus in Glory. The following quote is a striking one, I made a diagram which explains it. Except for the 2 Scriptures at the Capstone, and the words "Time of the SQUEEZE," all the other explanations on the right and on the left of the pyramid are taken from this same quote.

You believe that this is the hour that Jesus is to come; that the Church has come from justification, sanctification, baptism of the Holy Spirit, just like the pyramid like that coming? And now the TOP STONE is going to have to be so perfect till, when the HEADSTONE comes, it has to blend right with it. The ministry has to start out like this, and just come to the minority all the time, getting smaller groups, and smaller group, until finally the Stone meets with the building. He is the Headstone, takes the whole building with Him, which is the Church. All of them will raise up, plumb back from this first watch, on to the seventh, and all go in the Rapture. Each one had their day allotted to them, and they had their reformers and founders, and so forth, all down through. And this last day, it come into an eagle again, which is back in the prophetic age, to bring this together. Do you believe that, the Word and STONE, the coming One?

270 PERSEVERANT -- DALLAS.TX -- 64-0305

...the Bride Church will mature, and her ripeness shall be an identification with her Lord by means of the Word, and her HEAD Who will come to her is the Mystery of GODLINESS, Which indeed is Christ. And as the false church with all cunning and diabolical power made up of political force, physical force and demons of darkness come against this true vine, the true vine with the fullness of the Spirit and the Word will do the very acts of power that Jesus did. Then as she nears her Headstone, becoming like Him through the Word, Jesus will come that the bride and Groom may be forever united as one.


To be identified with the Lord means to come up to the virtue of Patience, and here we wait patiently for the latter rain outpouring of the Holy Spirit, and for the last one to come into the fold. Then at the time of the squeeze, we move up into the virtue of Godliness as the quote above confirms, and on to the stature of the perfect man to be ready to receive the Headstone. Please note, as we move upwards, the groups of the true believers will get smaller all the time while the Message following will constantly increase. In the next quote, Brother Branham mentions "Word on Word." Five times he says Word, and five Virtues brings us up to Patience again, and then on to the fullness. He makes it very clear that only those who are in the full stature are ready to meet the Lord, nothing short of that.

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 statue 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.


REVELATION 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the

prophecy of this book, If any man shall ADD unto these things, God shall add unto

him the plagues that are written in this book:

19 And if any man shall TAKE away from the words of the book of this prophecy,

God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and

from the things which are written in this book.

That will be the showdown at the end of the age, Jesus Christ is the full Word of God, nothing added onto Him, and nothing taken away from Him. And for us to be in His Image and in His likeness, we have to be exactly the same. As Brother Branham says, full and complete obedience to the Message and the Bible entitles us to the TOKEN, and the Token is the leading of the Holy Spirit to understand and believe every revealed Word of God.

...if the people get the TRUE REVELATION of the TRUE CHURCH and what she is, what she stands for and that SHE CAN DO THE GREATER WORKS, she will be an invincible army. If they get a true revelation of the TWO SPIRITS within the framework of the Christian church, and by God's Spirit discern and withstand the antichrist spirit, Satan will be powerless before her. He will be as definitely thwarted today as when Christ withstood his every effort to gain power over Him in the desert. Yes, Satan hates revelation. But we love it. With true revelation in our lives, the gates of hell cannot prevail against us, but we will prevail over them.


ROMANS 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions

and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.

18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly;

and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

19 For your obedience is come abroad unto all men. I am glad therefore on your behalf:

but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil.

20 And the God of peace shall BRUISE Satan under YOUR feet shortly.

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

If we get that true revelation of the TWO SPIRITS within the Message, and stop compromising with the other side, and take a solid stand for the real and true Message and withstand that antichrist opposition, Satan will be cut off, he will have no more power over us. Paul tells us that we must mark them that cause divisions, and avoid them. What does the Token mean? Total obedience to ALL the Message, including 2 times 7 Seals opened at different times, and the Judgment of the righteous saints as Brother Branham was told behind the curtain of time, and everything else which the Message teaches us. Then when we come to the end of the age, and into the full stature of the perfect man, and by total obedience to the leading of the Spirit, we will live in a protective bubble which Satan cannot penetrate. He will try, but he will be powerless to do it, and that will be when he will be bruised under our feet. That will fulfill that certain part in Genesis 3:15, it will be Christ in us Who will do it, but through us.

And he lost his godship; he lost his sonship; he lost his domain; and Satan took it over. But, brother, we are waiting for the manifestations of the sons of God, who will come back and take it over again. Waiting for the fullness of time, when the PYRAMID gets up to the TOP, when the full sons of God will be manifested, when the power of God will walk out (Hallelujah.) and will take every power that Satan's got away from him. Yes, sir, it belongs to him.

76 ADOPTION.4 -- JEFF.IN -- 60-0522E



Brother Branham said many times that at the end, one in a million Christians would be ready for the coming of the Lord. We often wonder how many Message followers stop and seriously consider how few that will be? There are about 2 400 million Christians worldwide, which means that about 2 400 will make it! There are about 2 400 000 Message believers all over the world, and half of us live in the Congo, which means one in a thousand will be ready at the end. That is a shocking small number, but lots of quotes like these 2 confirm it.

I was speaking here a few days ago upon this Scripture, "Strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, and but few there'll be that will find it." And a young man who was riding with me in a car, said, "How many would you say would be saved in this generation?" I said, "Eight or ten."

"Oh," he said, "Don't say that, brother." I'll say, "I'll lengthen it to fifty, and that's as many as I can go." He said, "Fifty people?" I said, "Jesus said when He was on earth, 'As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be in the coming of the Son of man.


See how few it is? Just one here and there, a little family will come out from a state. That right? [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.] Exactly now, here we're talking FACTS. We're... If you're going to see what the antitype is, you have to see what the type was first.

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

What will happen to the rest of the Message believers who failed to reach the full stature of the perfect man? They will go into the great Tribulation, Brother Branham calls them the Tribulation saints. They are also called the foolish virgin, we understand that the wise and the foolish virgins receive the same Message. The oil means the Holy Spirit, the foolish virgin had just enough for justification, but not enough to be truly baptized with the Holy Spirit. They are the REMNANT, that means they are from the same material (Message) as the Elect. To reject parts of the Message is the same as rejecting the whole Message.

That's like the virgin. The word "virgin" means "pure, holy, unadulterated, sanctified." Five had oil and five did not; five was filled and the other one just remained in sanctification.


The ELECT will go up, and the REMNANT will be left here to go through the tribulation period. And at the end of the time, when they see what has happened, they'll have to go down in MARTYRDOM.


Now, we find out also in this that the Sixth Seal now being opened, it was for a threefold purpose. Now, here was the purposes: The first thing was that the sleeping virgins had to go through the tribulation period for purification. She had to be purged of her sins of unbelief and rejecting the message. This she was done in the tribulation period.

574-7 {386} THE.SEVENTH.SEAL -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0324E

The sixth Seal has a threefold purpose, firstly to purify the remnant by martyrdom for rejecting the main part of the Message, the day of Redemption. The second part is the redemption of the 144 000 Jews by the same Message we have, but it will be preached by Moses and Elijah. Thirdly the whole earth will be cleansed by fire when the atomic chain reaction will be let loose by the Russian army at Armageddon.

REVELATION 12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went

to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of

God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

REVELATION 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that

keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

Just a little while, we'll be summoned, then the Rapture will come. Just a little bitty group, like Enoch, will be taken up. Then, "the remnant of the woman's seed, that keep the commandments of God," JEWS, "have the testimony of Jesus Christ," GENTILE, will be hunted down like dogs, "and shall give their life for their testimony."


"Will the foolish virgin be saved." No. Whatever happens she--happens now. After that time she's in the state... Now, she will have to go through the tribulation period. And the reason of it is, is because she has rejected the Atonement in Its FULLNESS. She is a believer, a professed believer, but she will have to go through the tribulation period. The Bible said, "And the rest of them, the dragon spurted water out of his mouth to go and make war..."

1033-174 QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS.2 -- JEFF.IN -- 64-0823E

What is the FULLNESS of the atonement which they rejected? That is to have the Token, which means to be led by the Holy Spirit to go all the way right up to the full stature of the perfect man. That is why they cannot triumph over death and bypass the grave, and they have to accept martyrdom and be hunted down like dogs by that dragon system. Brother Branham said that in Revelation 15 we see these foolish virgins again, he calls them the Tribulation saints.

REVELATION 15:2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them

that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and

over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.

3 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great

and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.

4 Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations

shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.

Notice. Now, at the end of this age, John when he saw the sea of brass there, it was clear as crystal. What was it? The Word had been taken from the earth, raptured in the church, and it was clear as crystal, no more Blood; the church age was over. Now, in Revelations 15, the remnant of the woman's seed, which was the tribulation SAINTS that went through the tribulation was found (Look.) standing on this sea. And it was filled with fire, blood, red blazes licking forth, the fire of God. They had gotten the victory over the beast (Rome), over his number, over the letter of his name, and over his image (the Confederation of Churches), and had come out. And through the preaching of MOSES and ELIJAH, those two prophets that will appear to Israel to pull out the--this group of people, those tribulation period saints, back in that time that'll be brought in would...


The water in the sea of glass is the Word for the age, and today we in the Message are washed by that water of the Word. But at the end of the age, that water will be removed, and then the water will be replaced by fire and lightning which represents Judgment without mercy and without grace. Then in the Tribulation, the foolish virgin will hear from Moses and Elijah that they have missed the second coming of the Lord, and they will hear all the details about the Judgment of the righteous saints, and the opening of the 7 last Seals, and the incarnation of the fullness of God into His Bride, but it will be too late for them. Those who had heard it before and rejected it, they will be cast into hell as Brother Branham says in the next quote, but those who have never heard of these deeper things of the Message, they will give their life willingly and they will get Eternal life at the White Throne Judgment. As far as we can see at this point in time, that will be about 99% of the Message believers worldwide. Why will it be as terrible and dreadful like that?

ISAIAH 9:16 For the LEADERS of this people cause them to err; and they

that are led of them are destroyed.

201 Now, these tribulation period saints that come up, had went through great tribulation... The church will not go through the tribulation. Do you see they was already in glory? And here's the tribulation saints, the sanctified ones that had... Being it's mine and your fault they had never heard the Word. If they heard It and rejected It, they went on to hell; they was cast out into outer darkness because they rejected the Word. But if they would never heard It, God's just; tribulation period comes to them.


202 Now, notice just a minute, saints washed by the SAME Word, 'cause it's the SAME altar; it's the SAME sea of glass and the SAME Word. Revelations 2:5, Revelations 15 (or rather) 2 to 5. Now, notice, just a minute. Now, we never took the Word to them; that's the reason they was--they was like that. We never took the Word to them; we're going to be held responsible. So we'll not be able to catch all the people, the church won't in this age, that's got the truth. Because they'll go through the tribulation; they're not the saints that died way back yonder in them church ages, because he said, "They come up out of the great tribulation," and the great tribulation's yet future, after the church goes home.

These Tribulation saints are washed NOW by the same Water, by the same Word, by the same Message given to us by the Holy Spirit through our Prophet William Branham. Only the Message teaches that our Lord Jesus is God Almighty the right way, all the outside denominations teach the Godhead differently. There is no question about it, all these quotes tell us that the foolish virgins are precious Brothers and Sisters in the Message who are all around us. It hurts to write things like that, but we cannot ignore that these things are true facts.

204 Now, see, they never entered in, but they'd heard the Word. They heard the Word. Now, listen, see what kind of doctrine they heard, see if it compares with the churches NOW.

And they sang the song of Moses the servant of God... (That's after Moses had crossed over.),

and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are Thy works, Lord GOD ALMIGHTY;...

(Who is that Lamb? Lord God Almighty.)... just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.

See what they recognized Him to be? Not no third person in a trinity but the Lord God ALMIGHTY, the King of Saints.

260 They was washed by the SAME waters that you're being washed by NOW, hearing the Word in the faith and power of Jesus Christ being the Almighty. It's the whole revelation at the beginning. The whole thing's wrapped up in the revelation of Who Jesus Christ is: God made flesh among us.



The appearing of those seven Angels in March 1963 for the opening of the seven written Seals was an event of great importance for all humanity, not only for those who follow the Message. That is why the picture of the cloud had to be published in "Life" magazine, and distributed all over the world as a witness, because it was showing the world that the Lord will come soon as the Judge of the whole world, and that will directly affect every living person on earth. As can be expected, that warning was by and large ignored, even within the Message the true meaning of that picture is not understood. Brother Branham must have realized that, because after the opening of the 7 written Seals in 1963, he was so discouraged that he stopped preaching.

Here recently I was going to just quit preaching. The people wouldn't hear me. They just kept on doing the same thing, and I--I got discouraged. I built a COMPLEX. O God! A couple Sundays ago, when You give me that sign out there, and reading a Bible, and see You told Moses, just as that dream was, that there was a mountain, too, and would be a sign to him. And then right at the end of it, to know that I--I had left a lot of sick people; a ministry not only in the prophetic, but in teaching the Word, and--and for praying for the sick. You let a man drop dead right here in the floor, then brought him back to life, for confirmation that it was true. You always confirm Your Word.

388 THE.INDICTMENT -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0707M

While opening those seven Seals by the seven Angels, Brother Branham said 3 times that these Seals explain what IS, and what WAS, and the mystery of what IS TO COME. But still today, 52 years later, the most important part of that Sealsopening, the part of what IS TO COME, which explains exactly WHEN and HOW the second coming of the Lord will be, that is practically unknown among the worldwide Message followers. That means that the Message which was revealed from Heaven with the mighty Angels was and still is by and large rejected. Therefore, those same Angels will take vengeance by pouring out the 7 vials upon all who live on earth, upon the Message believers who will fall short and become the foolish virgins, and the rest of humanity, except upon Israel.

II THESSALONIANS 1:7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus

shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,

8 In flaming fire taking VENGEANCE on them that know not God, and that obey not the

gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:

9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord,

and from the glory of his power;

When the last predestinated saint has come into the fold, then the church ages will be finish, and the Gospel will go over to the Jews, and the Bride will be raptured. Then the sixth Seal will start, which is the great Tribulation. These same seven Angels Who anointed the church age messengers during the church ages, and Brother Branham at and after 1963 to preach the full Word of FAITH, VIRTUE, KNOWLEDGE, TEMPERANCE, PATIENCE, GODLINESS and BROTHERLY KINDNESS to bring us at the end-time to the full stature of the perfect man, They will take vengeance on all of them who did not obey all of the Message, or rejected it altogether, and They will pour out these 7 vials upon all of them. We will see that each vial is the punishment for the rejection of each virtue, and they are once again exactly in the same order as the virtues.

REVELATION 16:1 And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven

angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.

2 And the FIRST went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome

and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them

which worshipped his image.

Brother Branham said that at the END, there will be some saints of God who will be sealed by the Seal of God, by FAITH they will go all the way to the full stature of the perfect man. The rest of all the people who live on the face of the earth, except the 144 000 Jews, they all will take the mark of the beast as Revelation 13:8+16 tells us. Because they did not have the FAITH to accept the Message, they will be tormented by the outpouring of the first vial by the same Angel Who anointed Paul and the first church age with the virtue of FAITH.

3 And the SECOND angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as

the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.

After we repented of our sins, we were sanctified by the blood of Jesus, and we were washed by the water of the bleeding Word of Calvary. Then by obedience, we believed every Word of God which established VIRTUE visibly in our changed lives. The sea types multitudes of people, and the multitudes who never had that new life experience by rejecting being washed and cleansed by the blood of Jesus, they will be tormented when the second Angel pours out His vial upon them.

4 And the THIRD angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains

of waters; and they became blood.

5 And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord,

which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus.

6 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast

given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.

7 And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty,

true and righteous are thy judgments.

Psalm one says that the true believers are like trees planted by the rivers of water. The waters there represents the flow of the Holy Spirit from that great fountain of all wisdom and knowledge on high. This speaks of the baptism of the Holy Spirit which connects us to that fountain, and it gives us revelations and KNOWLEDGE to be guided into all truth, and shows us things to come, as John 16:13 explains. Those who reject the 9 gifts of those spiritual rivers will certainly miss the rapture, and they will be subject to the third Angel who will bring the plagues upon the natural rivers like in Egypt, which will cause very serious suffering.

8 And the FOURTH angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power

was given unto him to scorch men with fire.

9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God,

which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.

In a vision, Brother Branham saw himself standing in the sun, preaching to a huge mammoth congregation, and he said that "streaks of the sun was shining down on them." Those "streaks of fire" of the Holy Spirit produce and ripen the fruits of the Spirit, such as love, joy... and TEMPERANCE, as Galatians 5:22+23 says. The same sun which gives life to all nature and man, naturally and spiritually, the same sun will scorch the people like in the days of Elijah and Ahab at the outpouring of the fourth vial upon the whole world.

10 And the FIFTH angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his

kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain,

11 And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores,

and repented not of their deeds.

As 1 Thessalonians 5:5 tells us, we are the children of light, and not of darkness because we know the signs of the coming of the Lord, and we will not miss it. We are watching the predicted events taking place, and with PATIENCE we are waiting for the final call to come up hither to meet our Kinsman Redeemer. But the children of darkness don't know what to look for till it will be too late, then they will be cast out into the outer darkness, and then there shall be weeping and crying, and gnashing of teeth at the outpouring of the fifth vial by the fifth Angel who had anointed Martin Luther to take the church out of the dark age into the Reformation.

12 And the SIXTH angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the

water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.

13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon,

and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

14 For they are the spirits of devils, working MIRACLES, which go forth unto the kings of

the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments,

lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.

16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

Just before the end, another latter rain outpouring of the Holy Spirit with great signs and wonders, and with Mark 16 in action, and another Ananias and Sapphira manifestation will bring the Bride to the virtue of GODLINESS, which means to be like God, to make us ready to be gathered for the day of Redemption. In his very last sermon, Brother Branham said:

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

Near the end of the 3.5 years of Tribulation, at the outpouring of the sixth vial, a satanic "latter rain" outpouring of spirits of devils will be released to work miracles. Revelation 13:14 says that ALL who live on earth at that time will be deceived by those miracles, and with that UNGODLY satanic deception, the antichrist will gather them for the battle of Armageddon.

17 And the SEVENTH angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice

out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.

18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake,

such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.

19 And the great city was DIVIDED into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell:

and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the

wine of the fierceness of his wrath.

20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.

21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and

men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

All those saints who will be completely purified in the latter rain, and will reach that virtue of Godliness, when they are gathered together, they will make up a body of total unity. They will be welded together as one body by the virtue of BROTHERLY KINDNESS, there will not be enough space for a razor-blade between them. Everyone will be in the full stature of the perfect man, and then together we will be ready to triumph over Satan and death, and we shall bypass the grave on our way to meet our Kinsman Redeemer at His second coming. But when the seventh Angel will pour out his vial, everything will be broken down and fall apart. Cities, mountains and islands will be ripped to pieces by volcanic eruptions and great earthquakes, and the people will be stoned to death out of Heaven, to bring Judgment to all those adulterers as Deuteronomy 22:21 to 27 demands.

That will be the vengeance of the 7 Angels, by pouring out the 7 vials upon the whole Gentile world during the great Tribulation, because they have rejected the end-time Message of the Lord Jesus which He sent and signified by His Prophet William Branham. Those are the same 7 Angels Who met Brother Branham at the sunset mountain, and a week later at Jeffersonville to anoint him to preach the opening of the 7 written Seals. The correct understanding of those previously hidden mysteries, plus the manifestation of the Holy Spirit in the soon coming latter rain outpouring will bring the Bride to the full stature of the perfect man, to the image and likeness of God as man was when he was created originally, as explained in Genesis 1:26.

It is very sad that these vital facts of the Message and the Bible are just about unknown in the worldwide Message, most Message followers live in an unrealistic happy go lucky dream world, knowing just the basics of the Message and think that is enough to bypass death and the grave. Anyhow, the doors of grace and mercy are still wide open, and as the Lord Jesus said: "All the Father has given Me will come," and there are not enough devils in hell to stop that. There will be many sincere ones who will "press" into the Kingdom as Luke 16:16 says, and I will certainly be very happy for anyone who after reading these chapters will have enough understanding, and with the help of the Holy Spirit will go all the way in the Word of God to meet our Kinsman Redeemer at His second coming. May God richly bless you as you seriously consider these most important facts of God's Word..
