REVELATION.22:12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my REWARD [is]
with me, to give EVERY MAN according as HIS WORK shall be.

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

Verse 12 of the Scripture above puts it exactly into a nutshell what the opening of the seven LAST SEALS will be about for every individual saint whose works are recorded in the Lamb's Book of Life. That will be the day of the SECOND COMING of the Lord Jesus, the OMEGA at the END. But let us begin at the start of the Message and bring it up to that conclusion above. In the following quote, Brother Branham explains the importance of the Book of Revelation.

The Book of Revelation is the last Book of the Bible. It's sealed to UNBELIEVERS. In there the Bible says in the 22nd chapter, "Whosoever shall take ONE WORD from it or ADD ONE word to it, I'll take his part from the Book of Life." We realize that then It was altogether given for believers. And it opens the Book of Revelation and reveals Who the Author of this entire Book is (He's to look upon as Alpha and Omega, from Genesis to Revelations, Jesus Christ just the same right straight through), and reveals His complete mystery of Himself and His plans for His church ages that's to come, and was sealed in there by seven seals.
74 THE RAPTURE -- YUMA AZ -- V-5 N-14 -- 65-1204

In the next Scripture, we see the Lord Jesus as the ALPHA at the beginning, after His death, burial, and resurrection, and His ascension to Heaven to the right hand of God. He told John to write in a Book what he is seeing, and to send it to the seven churches which typed the seven church ages from that time in AD 96 until Laodicea, which is this last age in which we are now living in.

REVELATION.1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith
the Lord, which IS, and which WAS, and which IS TO COME, the Almighty.

1:18 I [am] he that liveth, and WAS DEAD; and, behold, I am alive for
evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

Verse 20 in the same chapter explains that the seven stars in the right hand of the Lord are seven angels, seven men, seven messengers chosen by God to bring their Message to their respective age. Each one was anointed by a heavenly Angel, by one of those Spirits explained in Revelation 1:4 and other Scriptures. As we know, the first messenger to the first church age was the Apostle Paul, he personally knew his Angel, just as Brother Branham met his Angel many times.

Acts 27:23 For there stood by me this night the angel of God,
whose I am, and whom I serve.

The Lord Jesus, the ALPHA, used the Apostle Paul at the BEGINNING to establish the Gospel of the New Testament. Brother Branham referred to him sometimes as "a PROPHET."

Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John wrote the acts of what taken place, and so forth. But Paul separated law and grace and put it into its place. See? He was the writer of the New Testament. He gave us the writings of the New Testament, setting the Word of God in order.
46 THINGS THAT ARE TO BE -- RIALTO CA -- V-4 N-6 -- 65-1205

Peter, James, John, all of them, they wrote (why, Matthew, Mark, Luke) what Jesus did, as scribes. But Paul set the thing in order; he was the--he was the PROPHET of the New Testament.
14 COMMUNION -- TUCSON AZ -- V-8 N-4 -- 65-1212

In the Old Testament, God spoke through the Prophets. He anointed them to bring certain portions of His Word at different times, acting out and revealing all the time what the Messiah will be.

All the old prophets back in the Old Testament cried out, not to themselves; they cried out under the Spirit of God, making them act like God in so much that they were called gods, and then the Fullness of that Spirit was manifested in Jesus Christ.
42 DISCERNMENT OF SPIRIT -- PHOENIX AZ -- V-9 N-3 -- 60-0308

Now, the word "anointed," or, the--the--the word "Christ" means "anointed One." Therefore, there would be One anointed above all the prophets; for the prophets had a portion of God, but He had the Fullness of God. See? Now, so man could just have a portion. He had the Fullness of the Godhead bodily.

As Noah, Moses, David reflected the coming of the perfect BRIDEGROOM, so has Luther, Wesley, and Pentecost reflected the coming of a perfect BRIDE.
301 HARVEST TIME -- PHOENIX AZ -- V-18 N-6 -- 64-1212

HEBREWS.1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake
in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,

2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by [his] Son, whom he hath
appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

The Apostle Paul, the writer of this Scripture IS that angel, or messenger, through whom God's Son was speaking to the church at that time. He made that very clear, he was very bold about that fact.

GALATIANS.1:8 But though we, or an ANGEL from heaven, preach any other
gospel unto you than that which WE have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

As we said before, so say I now again, If any [man] preach any other
gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for
if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

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

Paul was truly the mouthpiece of Jesus Christ, and not only at his time, but right through the New Testament. The next verse is certainly a stumbling block for many, where Paul is saying that there is a reward for “worshipping” an angel like him! We understand that no true servant of God would accept to be worshipped. According to Young's Concordance, that word “worshipping” in that particular verse means actually “threskeia,” which means “Religious observance.”

COLOSSIANS.2:18 Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary
humility and worshipping of angels
, intruding into those things which he
hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,

GALATIANS.4:14 And my temptation which was in my flesh ye despised
not, nor rejected; but received me as an angel of God, [even] as Christ Jesus.

15 here is then the blessedness ye spake of? for I bear you record, that,
if [it had been] possible, ye would have plucked out your own eyes, and
have given them to me.

In the last Scripture, Paul reminds the Galatians of their “Religious observance” and respect they once had for him, he did not say that they were wrong to reverence him like that. The same does apply for the angel messengers of every other age, and more so in this final age.

I.CORINTHIANS.3:10 According to the grace of God which is given unto
me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth
thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.

I.CORINTHIANS.15:1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel
which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;

2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto
you, unless ye have believed in vain.

The Apostle Paul was anointed to lay the foundation for the New Testament, he knew that other messengers would come after him and built upon it. Like Moses in Deuteronomy 4:1, he told the Corinthians that they can't be saved by any other Gospel, only by his preaching, all else is in vain.

ROMANS.2:16 In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men
by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.

As Paul said before, the Gospel that he preaches is not after man, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ, the ALPHA at the BEGINNING of the church ages. We have seen in Hebrews 1:2 that Paul explains that the God of the Prophets now speaks through His Son Jesus Christ, and he made it clear that he is the angel-messenger to deliver that Message to that FIRST church age.

What Hebrews 1:1 + 2 was for the BEGINNING, Revelation 1:1 is for the END. The Revelation of Jesus Christ, this time as the OMEGA, once again given by God, is sent and signified (with signs and wonders) by His angel-messenger to John, who represents the end-time believers.

REVELATION.1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave
unto him
, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to
pass; and he sent and signified [it] by his angel unto his servant John:

We understand that the Apostle and Prophet Paul was that first angel and messenger to the first church age. He had that revelation of Jesus Christ to set the New Testament in order. During the church ages that teaching was lost completely, but that revelation of Jesus Christ will be restored again by the seventh and last angel, the messenger to this church age. He is that angel by whom God restores the faith once delivered to the saints, as also Matth.17:11 and Acts 3:21 tells us.

REVELATION.10:7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel,
when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished,
as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

I believe that Paul knew that this would happen. In Romans 16:24 he ends his letter, then he adds another 3 verses. He addresses it to “him that is of power,” and the contents of the next 2 verses is exactly the same as in Revelation 10:7, and is to be made known to all nations around the world.

ROMANS.16:25 Now to him that is of power to stablish you according
to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation
of the mystery
, which was kept secret since the world began,

26 But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets,
according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known
to all nations for the obedience of faith:

I like “to him that is of power,” we know that in Brother Branham's ministry powerful things were done like in no other man's ministry, such as creating squirrels from absolutely nothing, just by the spoken words of a mortal man. In the above Scripture the Apostle Paul also says that we will be established by the preaching of Jesus Christ, the next quotes tell us how that is done.

I don't mean to be a rough preacher. I don't mean to do that God, You know it, but how can I say anything, 'less you put in my mouth. It's not premeditated. I know not what to say. You said, "Open your mouth, I'll fill it." And I do it, Lord, and I believe You.
E-81 GOD KEEPS HIS WORD 2 -- PHOENIX AZ -- 57-0307

Now, that same Spirit... Not because that I'm here. Why, I have no more to do with it than anybody out there. It's because that He is here. Christ is here, the Holy Spirit, the Angel of God. And I'm merely just a mouthpiece for Him. And Moses was just a mouthpiece for Him. And Jesus was a Mouthpiece for God.



REVELATION.1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith
the Lord, which IS, and which WAS, and which IS TO COME, the Almighty.

Most of the many different doctrines we see in the Message all over the world today started by the wrong understanding of what is taking place NOW, which IS now, and what HAS BEEN, and what is still TO COME. The next two quotes show us clearly that the Lord's day is still TO COME, that is when the Lord WILL COME as the Judge, as illustrated by the 1963 cloud picture.

We must realize that John was translated from Patmos into the Lord's day, and everything which is in the Book of Revelation is written from that viewpoint. He sees what takes place on the Lord's day, and from there he looks back to the church ages, and forward all the way into Eternity.

An attorney, a JUDGE. The judge with his sash over his shoulder, girded up here, not down as a priest. See, that shows He wasn't in His priesthood now. John went all the way over into the Lord's day and saw Him coming as the Judge.
167 PATMOS VISION -- JEFF.IN -- ROJC 69-130 -- 60-1204E

Actually what had happened was that John was caught up in the Spirit and transported into the Lord's Day, which is yet to come. The Bible speaks of the Day of the Lord which is to be in the FUTURE, and John is now seeing the things of that future day.

Today, March 2011, that is still in the future, it still IS TO COME when the Lord Jesus will come in His corporal body to judge the quick and the dead. But before that, the Lord Jesus appears in the form of the Holy Spirit to reveal the mystery of Himself, and everything we have need of, through His Prophet, His angel-messenger William Branham. That is the present part WHICH IS taking place right now till the last sheep has come into the fold. Then we move on to the "IS TO COME."

Look. When is the time at hand? When the Revelation of Jesus Christ HAS BEEN revealed to the Body of Christ, and Christ has been revealed, not dead, but alive, living in His Church, doing the same things He did, the same ministry, the same Gospel, the same sign, the resurrected Christ, when He's revealed by HIS ANGEL into the Church, then the time is at hand. And never a time, since that day until this has the mystery of Jesus Christ ever been revealed until these LAST few YEARS. Then the time is at hand.
78 REVELATION BOOK OF SYMBOLS -- JEFF.IN -- V-13 N-6 -- 56-0617

How different when John was caught up and seen Jesus, he was... Said, "Write it in a book what you have seen and give it back, SEND IT BACK to the church." Paul was forbidden to speak, and John was even asked to put it in a book so it would go all down through the ages. Oh, my. It's revealed NOW, to be revealed in this last days. It wasn't revealed in his day; it's revealed NOW as we GO ALONG.
124 REVELATION CHAP.FOUR PT.1 -- JEFF.IN -- ROJC 551-584 -- 60-1231

God does nothing without showing it to His prophets. That's the reason the Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ is the full Fullness of Christ right HERE before US, the Book. Now, He'll have to send one--someone to confirm that Book, reveal It, OPEN the SEALS, and so forth. But as far as any farther revelation of Christ, it's already recognized RIGHT HERE. He's the Fullness of This, of the Revelation.

The Messiah, the Holy Ghost, the Lord Jesus Christ IS here in Spirit form, this IS His ministry, but signified by His angel, a Prophet. The Son of Man reveal Himself through a son of man, as he said somewhere else. This is also called the shout, the FIRST fold of the threefold coming of the Lord.

Not through the Lutheran age, they had It in a form. Not through the Wesley age, they had It in a form. But this IS the age when the Holy Ghost comes HISSELF.
153-203 HEBREWS CHAPTER 4 -- JEFF.IN -- HEB -- 57-0901E

Two, three nights straight I tried to lay that in there; and then the Holy Spirit spoke and said (under inspiration)--said, "Blessed is he that cometh in the Name of the Lord." And before I could say anything, I'd done said it over, "Blessed is he who believes the Lord HAS come IN THIS."
440-128 QA.ON THE HOLY GHOST -- JEFF.IN -- COD -- 59-1219

They were watching for the Messiah. The Messiah is here, the Holy Spirit, the Messiah of this day, the Messiah that's making the Word be vindicated, of His promise.

But the Elijah of THIS DAY is the Lord Jesus Christ. He IS TO COME according to Matthew the seventeen--or Luke 17:30. It... The Son of Man is to reveal Himself among His people: not a man, God. But it'll come through a PROPHET.
212 TRYING TO DO GOD A SERVICE -- SHP.LA -- V-7 N-2 -- 65-1127B

The next quote is very significant. After Brother Branham had preached this sermon, the Holy Spirit came down upon the audience with a wonderful anointing. The Prophet realized that a Brother had a revelation from the Lord. By spiritual, Divine leading of the Holy Spirit, the brother reads chapter 22:16. It obviously speaks of that situation at that point in time. That is a direct confirmation from the Lord Himself that Brother Branham IS that ANGEL who is mentioned in that verse.

You have something you want to read, Brother Pat? Go ahead. See? [Brother Pat says, "22:16 of Revelations I read in the name of the Lord Jesus:
I Jesus have sent MINE ANGEL to testify unto you these things in the churches".
--Ed.] Amen. Now, that's spiritual, Divine leading. See, the Holy Spirit moving through the laity, going out there, speaking. Oh, isn't He wonderful? To think, friends, that's the same thing the Bible spoke of. And IT'S HERE today; we don't have to wonder about it no more.
363 TEN VIRGINS -- JEFF.IN -- ROJC 425-492 -- 60-1211M

From the 4th to the 11th of December 1960, Brother Branham had special meetings at the Branham Tabernacle. In that week, the Holy Spirit led him to preach that WHICH WAS, what HAS taken place over the past 2000 years during the seven church ages. The Lord revealed to him who the angel-messengers were for each age, and how many years each age lasted. There was a specific Message for each age which was introduced to the age by the angel-messenger who was anointed by his heavenly Angel to deliver the Lord's Message, to call out the elect, the predestinated saints.

Since this study was to be the most serious one I had ever undertaken up to this time, I sought God for many days for the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Then only did I read the Scriptures on the Church Ages and delve into the many church histories written by the most unbiased historians that I could find. God did not fail to answer my prayer, for while I read the Word and the histories, I was enabled by the Holy Spirit to see unfolded a pattern that runs through the centuries and right into this present, last day.

In Revelation chapter 2 and 3, each age starts with a different message from the Lord Himself to the respective angel-messenger. There is praise for those who receive and believe it, and a rebuke for those who fail the leading of the Holy Spirit. For each age, those elected saints that have an ear to hear and understand their Message, and OVERCOME the obstacles and opposition along the way, they are promised a REWARD. Notice: HE who has an ear, HIM who hears, HIM that overcometh, the INDIVIDUAL.

REVELATION.2:7 HE that hath an ear, let HIM hear what the SPIRIT
saith unto the churches; To HIM that OVERCOMETH will I give to eat
of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God..

REVELATION.3:21 To HIM that OVERCOMETH will I grant to sit with
me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my
Father in his throne..

Seven times, at the end of every age, there is a promise for each individual who has overcome the temptations of Satan by listening and acting upon the leading of the Holy Spirit. The verse above is the last one, it is for the overcomer of our age, the greatest reward will be to sit with Jesus in His Throne. There are millions of saints for each age, we know the names and actions of some of them who are mentioned in the Bible, but who are all the others? Each one has a specific place in the body of Christ, where and how do they fit in? What will be my place and my personal reward? And what about yours? That is exactly why we will have another Sealsopening, at the END, to witness the exact placing of each individual saint in the body of Christ.

Three weeks after Brother Branham had finished the church ages, he preached Revelation chapter 4 part 1. Then his teaching of the Book of Revelation changed from WHICH WAS to WHICH IS TO COME. It is very sad that this change has been missed by and large, that is the main reason why we see so much confusion in the worldwide Message, most ministers do not move with the Spirit. We are still in the "WHICH IS" time, in Laodicea, but the prophetic revelation had moved on to what "IS TO COME."

REVELATION.4:1 AFTER this I looked, and, behold, a door [was] opened
in heaven: and the first voice which I heard [was] as it were of a trumpet
talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things
which must be hereafter.

AFTER the church ages was OVER, and everything was come ready, made ready the setting of the 4th chapter here, the church ages was DONE. He had done left the earth. You see? Remember, the voice that spoke to him, behind him, in the seven golden candlesticks, the work was finished. And now that same voice was speaking up in heaven. What was it? He had DONE redeemed His people. His earthly work was FINISHED, and He was in glory, calling to John, "Come up hither." Amen. That makes me feel like shouting on the eve of New Year. Oh, my. There you are. See, ready, "Come up here."

To everyone that hears THIS Word, John represented HIM. Amen John was the representative of the Blood of Jesus Christ, testimony of the Word. He was a witness of the baptism of the Holy Ghost, with a personal fellowship with Christ, and he represented the ENTIRE CHURCH; that, every man or woman, boy or girl that ever believed in Christ and accept Him on the same grounds, he'll be summoned someday, "Come up hither," and be caught up before the tribulation. Remember, the tribulation time hasn't set in yet. This is being the time of setting of the JUDGMENT. John is being showed now what's going to take place AFTER the church AGE.
109 +174 REVELATION CHAP.FOUR PT.1 -- JEFF.IN -- ROJC 551-584 -- 60-1231

Many ministers do not regard as relevant what Brother Branham preached before the opening of the Seals in March 1963. That is an error with terrible consequences. For instance, he referred to Revelation 4:1 till the end of his ministry, but never explains it again like in the sermon above. This translation of the living saints to meet all the dead in Christ before the Throne is very important, chapter 12 at this website gives more details. Only a very few will be ready for that translation.

And when Jesus came, who did He come to redeem? Israel. What did He do in taking Israel? He got the Gentile Bride. Sure, He did, when He took Israel. He went... And He went to His own; He had to. What was the first thing HE HAD to DO? Redeem His own. And the Gentile church is just a sister to that woman, the Israelite church. Certainly. So He had to redeem Israel in order to get this. And he had to redeem Naomi in order to get Ruth, his bride.
121 REV.CHAP.5 PART 2 -- JEFF.IN -- ROJC 747-793 -- 61-0618

When the last saint has come in and is sealed unto this day of Redemption, then the church ages are completed. Then the Gospel will go over to the Jews, the sixfold purpose of His coming will start their redemption as explained in Daniel 9:24. Just like Boaz had to start the redeeming process for Naomi to get Ruth, so Christ has to do the same with Israel to get His Bride at that point in time. Brother Branham says: "Whatever you do, DON'T MISS THAT... BE SURE. Why do most believers know nothing about it? They know nothing about this change in the Prophet's teaching of the Book of Revelation, the change from WHAT IS now, to the prophetic, the future part of "what IS TO COME" at the END.

Now in closing, the Seven SEALS, Seven Trumpets, Seven Vials, Three Woes, woman in the sun, casting out of the devil--or the red dragon, comes between these times during the great tribulation period. Don't forget it. All these things take place during this time, but here is the SIXFOLD PURPOSE of his coming. Do you believe it? What a glorious time lays in store for those who love the Lord. I tell you, friends, WE CAN'T afford to MISS THAT. DON'T miss that for WHATEVER YOU DO. Be SURE.

All this now that we see will help us by His grace as we endeavor to approach these LAST Seven SEALS. See where we'd have missed it? From Revelation 6:1 to Revelation 19:21, WE WOULD'VE MISSED IT, 'cause (See?) we'd have been trying to apply it back there in this Gentile AGE, where you see it's over in THIS AGE. See? Now, we have proved it by the Word of God, and by the history...
193 SEVENTY WEEKS OF DANIEL -- JEFF.IN -- DA 89-141 -- 61-0806

The Prophet said: "We would have missed it?" Lets rather ask if there is someone else who has NOT missed it? This is indeed a very sad and tragic situation! In between his normal preaching, Brother Branham continues with his WHAT IS TO COME teaching of those seven LAST Seals.

...the next time, as far as I know, to be with you, will be after the church is completed. And I want to then, after the church ages, now we want to go then to the seven LAST Seals, and the seven last seals in the Book of Revelations, to TEACH THAT.
6 A GUIDE -- JEFF.IN -- V-12 N-7-- 62-1014E

Now, to you from the Tabernacle, we'll let you know as soon as possible if we can get it arranged up for those Seven Church Ages, to be followed up with the Seven LAST Seals.

And the seven seals that we're trying to speak of when I come THIS TIME, is the seven WRITTEN Seals. And these seven seals, as you know, is JUST the manifestation of the seven angels of the seven churches. But there are seven OTHER SEALS that's on the BACK SIDE of the Book, that's outside the Bible.
30-1 IS THIS THE SIGN OF THE END SIR -- JEFF.IN -- V-2 N-11 -- 62-1230E

The last quote is from the most important single sermon, the Prophet referred back to it at least 31 times. He said later that it is THUS SAITH THE LORD, and just before the end of his ministry he said that it contains the revelation which will gather the Bride together. The next quote tells us again that there are seven Seals AFTER the church ages, and the Breach is in BETWEEN the two.

Now, now, we're going to turn to the 5th chapter. Now, this is not the Seven Seals. It is the "Breach BETWEEN the Church Ages and the Seven Seals." Now, there is also a 6th chapter of... and there was a 4th chapter, rather, of Revelation, and in that it kind of revealed something that would take place AFTER the Church going up:
70-5 {23} BREACH THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0317E

The next three quotes tell us exactly what the opening of the seven written Seals in March 1963 was all about. First, it was the Holy Spirit Who opened the Seals in the denroom to the Prophet alone, then he preached a small portion of it at night at the Tabernacle. The Holy Spirit, WHICH IS Jesus Christ in Spirit form, He is the One WHO IS HERE, He opened those seven written Seals.

And there about twelve o'clock in the day the Holy Spirit just swept right down into the room, and the whole thing just opened up to me, and there it was...?... of this--of this First Seal being OPENED.
122-2 {35} FIRST SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0318

The next quote tells us that the opening of those seven Seals explained WHAT WAS, they show us that the millions of "overcomer" in the first three church ages were baptized with the "Lion Spirit" to overcome and conquer the perverted doctrines of the satanic white horse rider. After AD 325, they crowned a self-elected man to be the leader of the church instead of the Holy Spirit. In the next age the same rider rode a red horse, he killed the very elect "overcomer" with the sword, many millions died, endued with the "Ox Spirit," accepting death rather than compromise on the Word of God.

The third Seal covered the next three church ages, it opened up the mystery of the same rider on a black horse, his false spiritual food became subject to money, but the millions of "overcomer" with the help of the "Man Spirit" cannot be deceived. In this last age, the black horse rider will overlap with the pale horse rider, his deadly ride will produce the squeeze, and the "overcomer" will be kept alive and survive by the supernatural manifestation of the "Flying Eagle" part of the Holy Spirit.

And if the Seven Seals pertained to the seven churches, it had to be ALREADY PAST, because we're in the Laodicea church age... And the Seven Seals was ONLY revealing what they had left off BACK THERE, and it OPENED UP what they had left: what Luther left, what Wesley left, and all the reformers, and Pentecostals, and down to the present time.
1093-146 QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS -- JEFF.IN -- COD -- 64-0830M

But the opening of the seven written Seals in March 1963 did not only reveal the past, but also the mystery of what IS TO COME. ALL what Christ will do at the END was described at the opening of those Seals. That included the explanation of the fifth, sixth, and seventh Seal, because they start at the same time. There are over 70 quotes in the Sealsbook which plainly and clearly explain what takes place at the END. When the LAST one has come in, and the church ages are finish, then Jesus Christ will come the second time to all the gathered saints, all the hundreds of millions of "overcomer" of all ages, and He will fully redeem and reward each one individually at that day of Redemption.

This is described in this seven-sealed Book that we're talking of now. All right. The Book of Redemption, it's all described in here. All that what Christ WILL DO at the END will be REVEALED to us this week in the Seven SEALS if God will let us. See? All right; it'll be revealed. And revealed as the Seals break and are released to us, then we can see what this great plan of redemption is and WHEN and HOW it's GOING TO BE DONE. It's all hidden in this Book of mystery here. It's sealed up with Seven Seals...
90-1 {140} BREACH THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0317E

There are at least 17 quotes in the Sealsbook alone which explain what Christ will do at that time, He will come forth to take the Lamb's Book of Life to loose those seven LAST Seals. That is the most important part of the section which IS TO COME. The "Parousia" followers try to force it into the 1963 Sealsopening, but it does not fit at all. And the others? They sweep it under the rug, or ignore it as if it does not exist. Here are 2 of those 17 quotes, they all say basically the same.

...He was a Lion. See? The elder called Him, said, "a lion," because He had been a Lamb, an Intercessor, a bloody Lamb, but NOW He's coming forth as a Lion. My. His days of intercession's over. "Let him that's filthy be filthy still. Let him that's righteous be righteous still. Let him that's holy be holy still." The thing is closed. Oh, brother, then what? Then what? And remember, it comes at the seventh church age, when the mysteries of God will be opened up. Now, watch real close. This is something you MUST GET. Now, He HAD BEEN doing His mediatorial work making intercessions for the believer. For two thousand years He'd been back there, a Lamb. Now, He is stepping forth from eternity to TAKE the title deeded BOOK, and to break the SEALS, and reveal the mysteries. WHEN of it? At the END TIME. Do you get it?
99-1 {210} BREACH THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0317E

"They shall tread down the walls of Jerusalem until the Gentile dispensation be finished." The times are over. Yes, sir. And then, "Let him that's filthy, stay filthy. Let him that's righteous be righteous." See? There's no more Blood on the seat of the--of the-- in the sanctuary at all. There's no more Blood on the altar. The sacrifice has been removed; and there's nothing but smoke and lightning and judgment in there. And that's just exactly what's poured out here tonight. (See?) The Lamb's done left the--His mediatorial work. The mediatorial work has been finished from over on the throne, and the Sacrifice, as we've typed Him perfectly, the Kinsman Redeemer, the bloody Lamb that come forth, the Lamb that had been slain (a bloody One, been killed, bruised), come forth and TOOK the BOOK out of His hand.... The day's are finished. Now, He's coming to CLAIM what He has redeemed. Amen. That just sends something through me.
407-4 {116} SIXTH SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0323



We know Brother Branham's interpretation of Revelation 5:1, he says there is one Book with two sections, one “written within” and the other one “on the backside” of the Book, and both sections are sealed with seven Seals. The first section is the Bible, and the other section is the Lamb's Book of Life. If there is only one section, then verse two is the wrong way around. The Seals have to be opened first, BEFORE the book can be opened. The last quote above gives the perfect explanation of verse 2, the opening of the seven Seals “written within” the Bible opened the mystery what Christ WILL DO at the END, and when and how He comes forth at the END to loose those OTHER Seals on the Lamb's Book of Life.

REVELATION.5:1 And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the
throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.
2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy
to open the book, AND to loose the seals thereof?

Brother Branham said that his Message is finishing and winding up all the mysteries of God that are WRITTEN IN the Book. As Amos 3:7 and 8 says, the Lord GOD reveals His secrets through His Prophets, and their Message is like a lion roaring. The Bible also calls it the shout. The Message has to go to every nation, kindred and tongue till the LAST one has received it, then he HAD cried. Then, when he HAD cried, AFTER the last saint has come in, then those seven unwritten Thunder Voices will open up the OTHER or LAST seven Seals, as the following quotes plainly explain.

REVELATION.10:3 And cried with a loud voice, as [when] a lion
roareth: and when he HAD cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.

4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to
write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those
things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.

I want to take, the NEXT TIME that we start on the Seven Seals of Revelation, AND the seven NATURAL SEALS. And then if we get through in time, take the SEVEN SEALS on the BACK of the BOOK. See? Now, that may take a little time. See, there's seven seals that's opened; there's seven plagues, seven trumpets, all those sevens; and THEM SEALS we could TAKE FIRST. But then on the BACK of the Book is sealed with SEVEN SEALS. Daniel heard the Voice as It thundered, and was forbidden to write it. John was forbidden to write it. But it was sealed on the BACKSIDE of the Book, that is, AFTER all of the mysteries of the Book has BEEN GIVEN out and REVEALED.
2 IN HIS PRESENCE -- JEFF.IN -- V-11 N-4 -- 62-0909E

It's on the BACKSIDE. When a book is COMPLETE... Now, He didn't say on the front side; He said on the backside. AFTER it's all done COMPLETED, then these SEVEN THUNDER VOICES is the only thing that is stuck to the Book, that's NOT REVEALED. It's NOT even WRITTEN in the Book.
38-2 IS THIS THE SIGN OF THE END SIR -- JEFF.IN -- V-2 N-11 -- 62-1230E

The phrase “on the backside of the Book” is not connected to a location, but to TIME. When the LAST saint has received the Message of the Word “written within,” then that first section is finish and completed. Then, AFTER that, then it is time for the section on the backside to be loosed. We see in the next quotes that this will take place at the time when the sixth Seal has come into effect.

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.
575-6 {392} SEVENTH SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0324E

The Bride is sealed in with Christ. The last member has been redeemed. 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.
50-3  SOULS IN PRISON NOW -- JEFF.IN -- V-2 N-22 -- 63-1110M

Like everyone else, the last member will be redeemed by the Message, by the opened mystery of the Word “written within” the Bible, no matter how long it takes. THEN the Lamb will come to take the Lamb's Book of Life out of the hand of Him on the Throne, which is the section on the backside of the Book. The one follows AFTER the other.

Now, remember, the Bible said, the LAMB'S BOOK of LIFE was written before the foundation of the world, and your name was put in--was in that Book when the Lamb was slain before the foundation of the world to redeem every name that was written in that Book. See? You got it now? See, there ain't nothing out of order. It's working just exactly like God's big timepiece (See?), like a clock moving right around. Your name was put in there before the foundation of the world, when the Lamb was slain to redeem what was in that Book. And now, HE COMES forward and takes THAT BOOK to claim His redemption.
486-3 {188} QA ON THE SEALS -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0324M

And your name was put on the Lamb's Book of Life in His thinking at the beginning. And HE COME to redeem all names that's in THAT BOOK, no more, not one more, just what was in there. When the LAST name's redeemed, He takes HIS BOOK and claims what He has redeemed.

The next quotes show us as clear as clear can be why the Seals of the Lamb's Book of Life can only be opened AFTER the last one has come in. That Book is laying open in Heaven since the Plan of Redemption started with Adam and Eve, after they were cast out of Eden. Every one whose name is in that Book was chosen before the foundation of the world for their obedience to the Holy Spirit, and acting positively upon His leading to fulfill God's desired purpose. Those are the “earth's actions” of the overcomer, acting out obediently what the Spirit leads us to do, as it was foreseen by God and recorded in the Lamb's Book of Life. It will be closed when the last one has been saved and sealed UNTO the day of Redemption.

And when the BOOKS is closed of EARTH'S ACTIONS, and when they are finished, and we stand at the judgment bar, may it be said that when this meeting comes to be read off at that GREAT DAY that literally hundreds, yes, thousands, will raise their hands in joyful tone, that it was at that meeting that I found Jesus as my Saviour.

And when He brings the LAST ONE in... He's setting at the right hand of God TONIGHT doing His mediatorial work. And when that LAST SOUL is SAVED that was redeemed and seen and knowed by God before the foundation of the world, when that LAST soul's saved, that CLOSES the BOOK. Then the Lamb comes out and takes the Book out of the right hand of Him that sets upon the throne. Then it's--then He's coming then. He's coming to the earth.

Maybe there's a little boy in here tonight, or a little girl was born over in Seattle, Washington. Now, that Book holds her NAME. He come to redeem whose name was on THAT Book. "Redeem" means "bring back from where it fell from," and in the human race she was fell. And she can't accept it now; she's too young. So the church will slug right along, just play along. We'll have meetings, and so forth, till that last person is brought in. Then that BOOK is CLOSED. There's no more added. Then it's all over until...

We understand that when the LAST SOUL is brought in and is saved, then the predestinated personal “earth's actions” of all the saints of all ages are completed. Only then can the Book be closed and sealed, and go into the hand of Him on the Throne. According to the Prophet, that is the reason why it is called “on the BACKSIDE” of the Book, because the Lamb can only come AFTER the first section “written within” is completed, when the actions of the last ones “lifestory” will be finish and fulfilled.



Ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands of Seals are going to be loosed at that time and place. According to Daniel 7:10 and Revelation 5:11, that is the number of the saints who make up the Bride, the very elect, all those who are written in the Lamb's Book of Life.

I.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.

Now, you won't SEE HIM in a PHYSICAL BODY, until He comes FOR YOU at the great general resurrection. Then we'll see Him. And then we'll KNOW as we're KNOWN, see Him as He is. That's the hour we're all longing, waiting for, that time.

That opening of those OTHER seven Seals will be a very personal encounter for each saint with our Lord, because He will come for ME and YOU. When I shall see my Kinsman Redeemer face to face on that day, and He will loose MY SEAL of my life, then will I know all about myself just as I am known by Almighty God since before the foundation of the world when He seen my completed life in His mind, with all the ins and outs, and when He recorded every detail of it, and sealed it in the Lamb's Book of Life. That's what the opening of the seven LAST Seals will be all about for each and every saint of every age.

Ephesians 4:30 says, "Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby you're sealed until the day of YOUR redemption." Argue with Him, not me. That's what It says. I'm reading It. All right. "You're sealed until the day of YOUR redemption," until the day that JESUS comes FOR YOU. Then think of it.
95 GOD'S PROVIDED PLACE OF WORSHIP -- LA.CA -- V-18 N-2 -- 65-0425

He changed His strain from the Almighty to be a man to take on the form of man, so He could die to redeem man. Wait till WE SEE HIM, when there's nobody worthy. See?
89-3 {137} BREACH THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0317E

“What a day that will be, when my Jesus I shall see, when I look upon His face, the One who saved me by His grace...” That song will become reality on that day! The next quote gives us a important hint, it is “between the lines,” it shows that the opening of the OTHER Seals will reveal  all the believers names and deeds.

God said, "I'm going to OPEN UP one of the SEALS and show you something." Said, "You know, I got seven hundred back there that ain't never bowed a knee or joined any of them CREEDS yet, denominations. There's seven hundred of them READY for the RAPTURE.See?" Oh, oh, He said to His prophet, who He reveals His Word to (See?), through the Scripture, "I have seven hundred PREPARED NAMES yet out of this generation
329-1 {370} FOURTH SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0321

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.
93-1 {159} BREACH THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0317E

In Revelation 2 and 3, we seen a promise of a reward for each believer of the seven church ages. The Lord Himself says: “...and I will give to every one of YOU according to your works...” (2:23) To every OVERCOMER who has an ear to hear what deeds the Holy Spirit is leading him to perform. The opening of the seven written Seals in 1963 opened up the mystery how the saints overcame the various satanic horse riders with the respective lion, ox, man and flying eagle Spirit anointing. But at the END, each one's contribution, and obedience to the Spirit makes up the whole picture. That is when all the pieces come together, each one's portion, all our names and works will interlink from Adam to the last one, then the whole Mystery will be complete.

And there wasn't nothing, nobody in heaven, or in earth, or anywhere, was worthy to come TAKE the BOOK, or to even to look on It. John wept with great... Because the whole Book of redemption was there.

It was at the meeting the other night, that little Assembly of God brother and sister sang that song, "I wonder if John SAW ME when he saw all the nations gathered. Did he SEE ME?" Sure HE DID, IF your name was on that Book.
125 HARVEST TIME -- PHOENIX AZ -- V-18 N-6 -- 64-1212

Did John see me, Emil Fichter? I believe with all my heart that he did! Many times we hear some say: “If my name is on the book, I will be there. If not, then I can do nothing about it.” That is a very dangerous attitude. Those who do not firmly believe that they will be there, there will be a little chance that they are included in the Bride. In the next quote we see that Brother Branham hopes that the Brothers at the Tabernacle will be there on that day in their white ROBES, together with some of the saints of the Sardis church age. The white robe of fine linen is the righteousness of saints as Revelation 19:8 explains.

Them noticing them poor fellows standing there, God help you, brethren. I HOPE each one of you are given a white robe THAT DAY too. See? Standing, changing back and forth with legs hurting, and some of you worked all day.
370-2 {296} FIFTH SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0322

REVELATION.3:4 Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which
have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk WITH ME

in WHITE: for they are worthy.

Zion, the Bride, the general assembly, the righteous saints of all ages shall be redeemed by God, the JUDGE of ALL. Every individual overcomer will appear before Him yonder, in the presence of an innumerable company of Angels, on that glorious day of the Lord's SECOND COMING.

ISAIAH.1:27 Zion shall be REDEEMED with JUDGMENT, and her

WRITTEN in HEAVEN, and to God the JUDGE of ALL,
and to the
spirits of JUST men made PERFECT,

...they don't know what minute that WE may be called or summoned to answer for OUR LIVES on high. And if our name is still on that stalk book, doomed we'll be; but if it's in the LAMB'S BOOK of Life, the real Life, then we are SAVED.
99 TRYING TO DO GOD A SERVICE -- SHP.LA -- V-7 N-2 -- 65-1127B

Only those perfected just men who are written in Heaven, in the Lamb's Book of Life, will be called or summoned to come up hither to answer for our righteous deeds done in our righteous lives at that Judgment Seat of Christ. This will be a mere formality, but we have to be CLAIMED officially. That is exactly what the opening of the seven LAST SEALS is all about. Is it Important? I believe that It is MOST important!

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

"When will it be, Brother Branham?" I cannot tell you. I do not know. 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 that in that room, the revelation coming from God (just like all the rest of them has)...
568-2 {335} SEVENTH SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0324E

Look what Paul said in the Book of Hebrews the 11th chapter, said they was sawed asunder and pulled apart, wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins in the--the desert and destitute and so forth, lives that this world's not worthy of. There you are. That life's worthy of the Gospel. How's mine and YOURS going to stand in the DAY of JUDGMENT with men like that?
258 IS YOUR LIFE WORTHY -- JEFF.IN -- V-5 N-5 -- 63-0630E

There are hundreds of quotes in the Message about this Judgment, chapter 9 at this website has many more of them. The day of Redemption will REVERSE the fall in Genesis 3 where God the Judge condemned Eve and Adam for their unrighteous deeds. This Judgment of the righteous will confirm every saint to be the opposite, to be blameless, faultless, holy and unreproveable. This is for all the Bride, the Corinthians, Colossians, Hebrews 11 etc., for all those who died with the earnest, the Holy Spirit by which we all are sealed unto that day of OUR full Redemption at the second coming of the Lord.

I.CORINTHIANS.1:7 So that ye come behind in no gift; WAITING for
the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ:

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

COLOSSIANS.1:22 In the body of his flesh through death, to PRESENT
you HOLY and UNBLAMEABLE and unreproveable in HIS SIGHT:

JUDE 24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to PRESENT
before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,

...there's nothing in the world can stir you, change you, shake you? You're in Christ Jesus, anchored away in the Kingdom of God until the DAY of YOUR REDEMPTION to be presented FAULTLESS before Him.
130 ACTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT -- JEFF.IN -- V-26 N-10 -- 54-1219E

Show us the paths that You have ordained that WE should WALK, and give us of Thy grace and love, that we might follow those paths and instructions with all of our heart, that WE might be found THAT DAY in Christ, BLAMELESS, for we believe, Lord, that His appearing is soon.
1 TRYING TO DO GOD A SERVICE -- JEFF.IN -- V-4 N-8 -- 65-0718M

In order to be openly judged and declared FAULTLESS and BLAMELESS by the righteous Judge, there has to be a sure evidence, a public display of each ones righteous deeds and works, that everybody can see our testimonies.

Jesus said, "He that will confess Me before men, him I'll confess before the Father and the holy Angels." 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.

And God's GREAT SCREEN picks that up. And every move and EVERY ACT that you make, you've got to MEET IT at the JUDGMENT. See? So, young fellow, it's a good thing to stop, think about these things (See?), 'cause you're going to meet it again.
E-29 COME FOLLOW ME -- TUCSON AZ -- 63-0601

Nobody can fail at this Judgment of the righteous, those who fail to go all the way in the Word will appear at the White Throne Judgment after the Millennium. But each one of the elected saints will manifest an ATTRIBUTE of God Himself. Jesus died, rose and ascended on high that He could come back again in the form of the Holy Spirit to guide and lead us to live and display our personal foreordained, predestinated attribute of God. God has entrusted a different attribute of Himself to be displayed by each one of His saints.

His THOUGHTS is the Christian of today, the thoughts before the foundation of the world. Now, remember, man, when he was borned in sin, shaped in iniquity, comes to the world speaking lies. Is that right? There's nothing in him at all. So you see, if he was in God's THOUGHTS when he come to the world, he's come in God's thoughts at the beginning to DISPLAY His ATTRIBUTE. You follow me? Then Jesus came to break the clouds back so that attribute could display itself. He is God's expressed Word.

But when the body had BEEN FORMED and that LAST NAME that's on the Book be recognized here on earth, the books are closed, for it is completed; the STORY of REDEMPTION has been READ COMPLETELY. Then we go to see Him and to meet Him in the resurrection.
79 BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT -- JEFF.IN -- V-5 N-2 -- 58-0928M

This last quote has very crucial facts in it. It says that the LAST name completes the Redemption story. That means that all the new names of all the saints of all ages read together will spell out the full Redemption story, when we all go and gather there to see Him! That means that the captions, the titles of each one's displayed attribute of God will be our new names. When the righteous lives of all the saints of all ages will be displayed on God's great canvas spread across the sky, one after the other, from Adam to the last one, then all the hundreds of millions of attributes of God will be disclosed, acted out ALREADY at that time by the saints as foreordained and foreseen by Almighty God before the foundation of the world. All that is still sealed up in the Lamb's Book of Life.

I'm trusting I--I'm one of those that's going to find my name tonight behind that SEAL yonder that was put on there from the foundation of the world. Something struck my heart and I'm standing, Lord, is it me? Are You calling me? I want You to reveal to me MY NAME over THERE. Fill me and seal me INTO YOURSELF by the Holy Ghost."
226-4 {359} SECOND SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0319

He said give them a NEW NAME. I--I--I don't know what that is. See? It'll be probably made known when WE GET THERE, but I--I don't know what it is now. See? See, He is going to do that. See? He give them a new name that--that they just knowed themselves.
471-3 {98} QA ON THE SEALS -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0324M

The Lamb's Book of Life, that seven sealed Book, the title deed of our Redemption will also open up and reveal our REWARDS when the bloody Lamb will loose those seven LAST Seals on that great day of our Redemption. The Lord Jesus paid at a great cost at the cross and in hell for HIS inheritance, but being one body with our Kinsman Redeemer, He shares His inheritance freely with all of us. That is why He will appear there as the bloody Lamb on that day, “as he was slain,” as Revelation 5:6 says, as a memorial that He suffered in our place that we all can stand there on that day, perfect in His likeness.

Then what? Ruth was REWARDED. That's when WE'LL be REWARDED. That's what this seven-sealed Book is going to OPEN UP TO US. What is these things? They're mysteries. They're NOT WROTE in the Word; they have to be revealed by the Holy Spirit; but if you'll notice, actually, they are revealed all down through the Scriptures, but they been hid from the people.
118 REV.CHAP.5 PART 2 -- JEFF.IN -- ROJC 747-793 -- 61-0618

It is the title deed of OUR redemption, this seven-SEALED BOOK.It's the title deed. You wait till we get into those SEALS. He breaks the SEALS, reveals, gives US HIS inheritance to His people. He gives the inheritance that He inherited by becoming Kinsman Redeemer, and freely gives it out TO US. It all belonged to Him. He was the One Who redeemed. But instead of keeping it Hisself, He gives it back to the people. That's HIS LOVE for US.
161 REV.CHAP.5 PART 2 -- JEFF.IN -- ROJC 747-793 -- 61-0618

MATTHEW.16: 27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with
his angels; and then he shall REWARD every man according to his WORKS.

28 Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste
of death, till they see the Son of man COMING in his kingdom.

Jesus told His disciples that EVERY man shall be rewarded at the coming of the Son of Man, every one whose name and works is written in the Lamb's Book of Life will be gathered yonder. Seven days later, Jesus took three of his disciples up on a high mountain apart (a type of the translation of the living saints) to show them a preview of His coming. Then Moses and Elijah appeared, Brother Branham explained lots of times that Elijah represented the translated LIVING saints, and Moses represented the DEAD in Christ, whose bodies will still remain in the grave at that point in time.

We close this chapter with the same Scripture I started it, Revelation 22:11-12. We all know that verse 11 is still to come, unjust and filthy people can still become righteous or holy. But when the last one has come in and is sealed with the Holy Spirit unto the day of Redemption, then that day of Redemption will take place as explained in verse 12. We can say that verse 11 represents the 4th chapter of Revelation, which will be AFTER the church ages have finished, and when time for salvation will be NO MORE, and the living saints will be translated according to Revelation 4:1, to meet the dead saints in their Theophany bodies before the throne.

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.

Verse 12 represents chapter 5 of Revelation, the bloody Lamb coming forth to take the Book out of the right hand of Him on the Throne, after nobody else was found worthy. Why does this verse end with the words SHALL BE? At that moment in time He has come and has taken the Lamb's Book of Life, but He has not yet loosed those other Seals. SHALL BE represents chapters 6:1 to 8:1, when EVERY man's WORKS SHALL BE displayed on the great canvas of Heaven, as Brother Branham explains it in different sermons. Everybody will see the evidence that every saint was an obedient overcomer by his or her personal yielding to the leading of the Holy Spirit.

Sometimes people say that it would take many years to display the lives of hundreds of millions of people, it could never be done in a day! They don't realize that in another dimension, time is not like we know it. The Lord receives hundreds of thousands of prayers every minute, maybe millions at “peak-times,” and He receives every one, and also answers them. It is said that when a person dies, at the last moment, the whole life of that person is flashing past before their eyes in a split-second. That shows that it can and will be done in a day, Paul refers often to THAT DAY.

Dear Brothers and Sisters, we see in this chapter that at the END it will come down to the personal relationship between God and the individual. We must have the baptism of the Holy Spirit, just to go to church is not enough. We must be led by the Holy Spirit to do what nobody else can tell us to do, only He knows which attribute of God we must fulfill. Only those works will count on that day which is soon at hand. It is high time to get desperate, dig deeper, and make our election sure.



It is almost 12 years ago since I added chapter 24 to this website. Since then, a few more points of interest have come to light which further clarify this most vital subject of the opening of 2 times 7 Seals at different times, and I felt I should add them to this chapter. Let us look at the 2 verses which reveal the FIRST written Seal, as Brother Branham opened and explained them on the 18th of March 1963. Then we compare that explanation with what we know about the opening of the FIRST Seal on the backside of the book, and the rest of the 7 LAST Seals. The first verse of the FIRST written Seal says:

REVELATION 6:1a  And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard,
as it were the noise of Thunder...     

Now, let us find the symbols. We found out what the thunder means. That's perfectly; we know that. See? The THUNDER was the Voice of God when the Seal opened.    
155-4 {262} THE.FIRST.SEAL – JEFF.IN – 63-0318

There are lots of different Thunder doctrines in the message, which were taught by various ministers who thought that they had the right interpretation of what those Thunders said, not realizing that it was the thundering Voices of the 7 Angels who appeared to the Prophet on sunset mountain. THEY were the 7 Voices which opened up and explained those mysteries to him, and They anointed him to preach it, each night one at the time at the Branham Tabernacle in Jeffersonville.

6:1b ….one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.

The Prophet tells us that the 4 beasts mentioned at Revelation 4:6 to 9 represent 4 different Holy Spirit anointings, and the first beast was a lion, which means a lion-like Holy Spirit anointing of strength, boldness, fearlessness and courage upon the believers to withstand and overcome the forces of the enemy.

6:2a  And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow...

A horse in the Bible means a power, and white stands for righteousness, but this powerful rider was actually a bluffer, because he had a bow but no arrows. This white horse rider was spreading a satanic perversion of the true word of God, who tried to force his false doctrines upon the believers of the first 3 church ages, trying to lead them away from the true messages preached in the days of the ministries of the angel-messengers Paul, Irenaeus and Martin.

6:2b ...and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.  

This satanic force manifested itself first as a deviation from the original teaching of the Apostles, then it became a false doctrine which crept into the churches, and eventually it was crowned by the election of a man who took over the ruling of the church as a false prophet. That was the election and crowning of the first pope, it took place in the third church age, after the Nicean council established that office in the year 325 AD. This white horse rider's assaults against the believers did take place during the first 3 church ages, from the start of the EPHESIAN church age at 53 AD to the end of the PERGAMOS age at 606 AD.

This opening of the FIRST Seal of the 7 WRITTEN Seals by the Holy Spirit through Bro. Branham gave us the true explanation of these 2 verses of Scripture. That teaching gives as the basics of that Seal without going into further details. It seems to be obvious that there must be a related continuation which would lead to the opening of the FIRST Seal of the LAST 7 Seals on the backside of the Book, and those details of the continuation must also be found in the Message, and in the Bible. Revelation chapters 2 and 3 were written by John in AD 96, they give us a prophetic, condensed description of all 7 church ages, they are addressed to the 7 angel-messengers of each age.

We know that every message produces 3 kinds of followers, the true saints, the make-believers and the unbelievers. At the end of every description of each church age, we see a promise for the true believers, the elect who are referred to as the OVERCOMER, because they overcame Satan's horse riders by the power and leading of the Holy Spirit. They hear and act upon the Spirit's direction. The next verse shows that there is a promise for every OVERCOMER in the first church age, promised to them by the Lord Jesus Himself.

REVELATION 2:7  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches;
To HIM that OVERCOMETH will I GIVE to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of
the paradise of God.

All of them hear the message, but only the elect are those who hear the deeper spiritual revelation of it, and diligently follow the leading of the Holy Spirit, because they have received that lion-like Holy Spirit baptism to give them strength and fearless boldness to stand up for it, and to know how to correctly divide the right revelation from the perverted interpretations infiltrated by the opposing spirit of the satanic white horse rider.

“To HIM that OVERCOMETH...” Every word written in Revelation chapters 2 and 3 was dictated directly to John by the Lord Jesus Himself, including these written promises of a reward to every individual OVERCOMER, which He promised He will give PERSONALLY to each one at a certain time. Common sense does tell us that “Prize-giving” can only happen AFTER the LAST saint at the LAST age has come in, and has also passed his test, and has overcome the opposition of the evil pale horse rider. He will be the last horse rider, which is still a future event. The next verse is directed to the overcomers of the second age.

REVELATION 2:11 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches;
HE that OVERCOMETH shall not be hurt of the second death.

His call here is not to just the church. "HE that overcometh." See? Not the church; that would be she, see, the church body. But it's "HE that overcometh," the INDIVIDUAL that will overcome, now.
38 HOW.CAN.I.OVERCOME  – JEFF.IN –  63-0825M 

At the SMYRNAEN church age, in Revelation 2:10 the Lord Jesus encouraged His elect to be faithful unto death, and He will give them a crown of life. Right now, those overcomers are still waiting somewhere in the Heavens together with their messenger Irenaeus for that promise to be fulfilled, just like Brother Branham and his converts are waiting over there behind the curtain of time for the very last overcomer in this last age to come in, then ALL these promised rewards will be handed out, on that day of our full redemption.

REVELATION 2:17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches;
To HIM that OVERCOMETH will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white
stone, and in the stone a NEW NAME written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

Now, that, now look to PERGAMOS, we'll find out what the overcomer had left for him, in this. We'll read the 17th verse, to the Pergamos church. HE that has an ear,... That, that's the INDIVIDUAL, not the whole group. The individual, that's BRIDE COMING OUT, you see, the Church. Let him that has an ear, hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To HIM that OVERCOMETH I WILL GIVE to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a NEW NAME written, which no man knoweth saving he that receives it. That's the overcomer, of the church age.
152 HOW.CAN.I.OVERCOME – JEFF.IN –  63-0825M

This Scripture, together with the Prophet's explanation tells us already of one of the sealed and hidden mysteries which will be loosed at the opening of the 7 LAST, or 7 OTHER, or 7 DIFFERENT Seals, as Brother Branham calls them. What will our new names be? And the new name of Jesus? As we already seen in section 4, when they asked the Prophet that question. He gave them the obvious answer: “I don't know what that is, It'll be made known when WE GET THERE.” Let us make sure that we will not miss it.

At the end of the third age, the FIRST Seal was completed, and according to Ephesians 1:13+14, all the overcomer's of the 3 ages were sealed by the Holy Spirit of promise, and the promise is that there is more to come. This Holy Spirit baptism is the earnest, the down-payment of our inheritance UNTIL the redemption of the purchased possession, which will happen at the gathering together of ALL the purchased sons and daughters of ALL ages. Ephesians 4:30 confirms it, saying we are sealed UNTO the day of Redemption, and Bro. Branham also says UNTO the day of YOUR Redemption. No NOT until the resurrection as they preach all over the world, but the day of redemption when we are fully redeemed, individually and personally by our Lord Jesus in His nail-scarred body. THEN comes the resurrection, which will be the RESULT of our full redemption.

This detailed explanation and placing of the 2 openings of the FIRST Seal is the same in principle which does also apply to the second, third and fourth Seal. The true followers of Columba's message at the THYATIREAN church age were baptised with an Ox-like Holy Spirit anointing to help them to suffer, and to rather accept torture and death than to compromise on the word of God, which made them OVERCOMERS of that satanic spirit which was enforced on them by Satan's red horse rider.

REVELATION 2:26  And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to HIM
will I GIVE power over the nations:
27  And HE shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken
to shivers: even as I received of my Father.

153  63-0825M  See, "With Him, in His throne." Christ is to rule the nations, with a rod of iron. And here is the Church that overcomes, "Setting in there, with Him, to break the nations with a rod of iron." Now let's take them to the SARDIS church. Now the 5th verse of the 3rd chapter.

REVELATION 3:5  HE that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment;
and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name
before my Father, and before his angels.

155  63-0825M  Now, let's take now the 12th verse. Now, this is to the church of--of PHILADELPHIA, in the 12th verse.

REVELATION 3:12  HIM that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and
he shall go no more out: and I WILL write upon him the name of my God, and the name of
the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God:
and I WILL write upon him my new name.

Again we see the promise is “TO HIM,” to every individual OVERCOMER who one day receive HIS or HER reward given out individually and personally by the Lord Jesus Christ (I WILL). That event and all the other actions, and whatever else will happen on that “greatest day in human history” as Brother Branham calls it, is sealed up in those 7 LAST Seals, still waiting to be loosed and revealed by the Lamb, on that day.

156  63-0825M  Watch what the OVERCOMER'S promised. See? Now, now Laodicea, that's the last church age. There's going to be some overcomers in there. Watch here. They, remember, each church age, the one proceeding it inherits ALL that the other ones offered. Watch up here. Now, here, it's after they done received all these powers, these new names, and everything written, that He promised, and eat the hidden manna, and all down through. Watch this last church age, Revelations 3:21.

REVELATION 3:21  To HIM that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as
I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

157  63-0825M  There's a reward for OVERCOMERS. Press on, lily. If it's in you, lay aside the mud and everything else, and press towards the top. Yes, sir. "To sit with Me on My throne."

When Satan in and through the serpent came to Eve to seduce her, he quoted to her what God had told Adam and to her, but in a questionable way. Eve failed the test, she did not recognize and OVERCOME Satan's perversion of the Word of God, and after the act in the flesh, Adam did also partake in that act to save his wife. Then at the following Judgment at Eden, Almighty God pronounced His sentence personally and individually upon the serpent, and Eve and upon Adam.

GENESIS 3:17  And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife,
and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: CURSED
is the GROUND for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
18  Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;
19  In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou RETURN unto the ground; for out of it
wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

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:

JOHN 16:33 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.

As Brother Branham said, “we are born in sin, shaped in iniquity, coming to the world speaking lies.” But despite this great tragedy which is described in Genesis 3, and the result told in Romans 5, the Lord Jesus tells us to be of good cheer. He is the first OVERCOMER of every obstacle which Satan can produce, and He in the form of the Holy Spirit has assisted every overcomer in the Old Testament, and during the first 6 church ages, and He will continue to do so till the LAST predestinated saint has overcome that evil pale horse rider with the help of the flying eagle anointing. We see that Satan in the form of the serpent came to test Eve and Adam, so has he done and still continues to test the message followers of all ages by these 4 horse riders. Like Eve, the majority have failed the test, and will still fail, but ALL the true saints of all the 7 ages are waiting for the DAY of our full REDEMPTION to conclude Ephesians 1:13+14 and 4:30. Full Redemption means to reverse the sentence of Genesis 3:17, and to pronounce every OVERMOMER as being as holy and sinless, and as faultless as Adam and Eve were BEFORE the fall.

At Eden, Adam blamed Eve, and Eve blamed the serpent, but God the Judge said to each one: “I BLAME you, it is your own FAULT.” The Bible says that on the day of Redemption, we are confirmed to be BLAMELESS (1 Cor.1:8+1 Thess. 3:13)  and presented FAULTLESS (Jude 24+2 Cor.11:2). At Gen. 3:24, God said “you done wrong,” and He drove Adam and Eve out of Eden, but the same Judge will tell all of us OVERCOMERS: “Well done, thou good and faithful servant...enter thou into the joy of thy Lord” (Matt.25:21). Outside Eden, Adam and Eve lived many years till the time of their death, then their bodies went back to the dust of the earth. Behind the curtain of time, the Prophet was told what the RESULT of our Judgment will be: 

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.
382-4 {409} THE.FIFTH.SEAL – JEFF.IN –  63-0322

She said, "Brother Branham, Jesus will come someday, and then we'll go back to earth." And said, "THEN we'll receive our GLORIFIED BODY; then we'll live together forever."  

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... – JEFF.IN – 60-1211M

The Prophet Daniel had seen visions of the endtime, and in chapter 12:8+9 he asked what the end will be? The Lord told him that the words are closed up and SEALED till the time of the end. In Revelation 10:4, John heard 7 Thunders, but he was forbidden to write them, and he was told to SEAL up those things which they had uttered. Then in Revelation 22:10 John was told: SEAL NOT the sayings of the Book, for the time is at hand.

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 REWARD is with me, to give EVERY man
according as his work shall be.

As the last 2 verses explain, this will be at the time of the coming of the Lord, as I have already mentioned in the previous sections. Verse 10 is a further scriptural confirmation that the opening of the 7 LAST Seals on the backside of the Book will take place at that time. This is the most vital part of the coming of the Lord, the Prophet explains it at least 27 times at the opening of the 7 written Seals in 1963, and in many other sermons.

There are HUNDREDS of MILLIONS Bride members in the Heavens, made up by all the OVERCOMERS over the past 2000 years, who are SEALED by the Holy Spirit UNTO the day of Redemption, which according to Ephesians 1:13+14 and 4:30 will take place BEFORE the resurrection of the dead in Christ. As far as we can see, well over 90 % of the worldwide message following reject and discard just about everything which I have mentioned in this chapter, all the quotes and the Scriptures, but yet they falsely proclaim that they believe Malachi 4:5+6. Brother Branham predicted what the result will be, and what the END will look like:

And the church age GOES OUT with such a little bitty minority that we find... Just listen here. I--I read this again this morning; it just nearly tore me to pieces: the place and the attitude of Christ at the END of the church age, found from the 20th verse to 22nd verse of Revelation 3. Think of it: Christ, at the END, where He's at. Where is He at the END of the church age? OUTSIDE His church, pushed out by denominations and creeds. What's His attitude? Trying to get back in. That's a pitiful condition.

Looking at this worldwide utter confusion, which also includes VGR and their worldwide following, we can see why the Lord Jesus said: “And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.” Brother Branham also said that the Lord has to shorten the days, or else there will be no flesh saved for the Rapture. As far as we can see, wherever we look, we see this clearly happening in front of our eyes, may God have mercy on us.
