THE REVELATION OF THE MYSTERY OF THE SEVENTH SEAL
Before we go deeper into this Message of the SEVENTH SEAL, let us study about the Gods purpose of opening of the seals at the end time of the Gods plan of redemption. The Gods entire mystery was revealed to the Great Prophet William Marrion Branham, Amen!
The Revelation of the Seven Seals contain the entire plan of redemption. Amen!
But in the Seals, practically everything is included - The Seventh Seal (527)
...THE WHOLE MYSTERY lays right here in the seals. EVERY MYSTERY of the BIBLE LAYS IN THESE SEALS" The Breach (91-92)
You see, it takes months and months and months, and you still wouldnt have it, because THE SEAL ITSELF TIES THE ENTIRE SCRIPTURES from Genesis to Revelation - one seal of it - The Fifth Seal (337-338)
The complete Revelation of Seals is the culmination of the Great Plan of Redemption.
Now, the mysteries of the Book are revealed when the Seals are broken. And when the Seals completely are broken, the time of redemption is over. - The First Seal (124)
He came to get His subjects. He revealed His secrets, and they saw it; and TIME IS NO MORE at that time. TIME IS RUN OUT; ITS FINISHED. All right. The Breach (107)
I can almost see that Angel standing there and saying at the last of that Seventh Angels Message, TIME SHALL BE NO MORE. That little loyal Bride will fly away into the arms of Jesus one of these days... The Sixth Seal (405)
When the Great Prophet received the complete revelation of the Seals, the perfect mind of Christ was placed in him and he became a PERFECT WORD OF GOD.
Now, the Great Holy Spirit has opened up the Seventh Seal and thus has renewed the mind of the Bride and has replaced the full mind of Christ in the Real Bride and is making her the Perfect Word. The flesh is becoming Word to produce THE WORD IN THE FLESH. Amen!
One of the purposes of God revealing the seals to His Real Bride is to show what He was doing in the past, what He is now doing in the present and what He is going to do in the Future.
Now, if you can get back here under these Seals, if they ever get ...when they are opened, you can see exactly what God is a-doing, What He has done, what He is going to do. Here it is Exactly... - The Sixth Seal (427)
1. What God has done
2. What God is doing
3. What God is going to do
When the Seven Angels visited the Great Prophet, he was lifted up from the ground and caught up into the constellation of Angels. There is a great significance behind this event. God, by His sovereignty, has lifted him up to the highest position in the Spiritual world as Joseph was lifted up to the highest position in Egypt by Pharaoh, and revealed the entire mystery of God to him. So, the Great Prophet had understood the entire mystery of God: What God was doing until the time of opening of the Seals, what God was doing right at the time of opening of the Seals and what was going to do after the opening of the Seals.
But the church at that time didnt understand the entire mystery of God because it was not the predestinated time for the church to receive the revelation of it. The church at that time had understood only the things that had already been fulfilled. That is the revelation of White Horse, Red Horse, Black Horse and Pale Horse. But the church didnt have the revelation of what God was actually doing in the life and the ministry of the Great Prophet, and what was going to do after the opening of the Seals until the Rapture.
Now, reveals all the mysteries that has gone on in the past The First Seal (129)
And these revelations then of what it has been breaks forth upon the people and they see WHATS HAPPENED. Do you get it now The First Seal (132)
...After its already been completed then He reveals; HE SHOWS WHAT HES DONE. Oh, my! - Christ is the mystery of God Revealed (33)
Though the entire mystery was revealed to the Great Prophet, he was forbidden from revealing these things to the church. That is why he was repeatedly telling of these two things in his message as :
1. Something is happening.
2. Something is fixing to happen
These things were hidden within the Thunder mysteries. Because the church has come to the very time of the coming of the Lord, He has already raised the seven manifested sons of God and has put the Seventh Angel (C) on the scene to reveal the Seventh Seal. Through the revelation of the Thunders, the Lord has now revealed what had happened in the life and ministry of the Great Prophet and what is happening right now just before the Rapture.
The Great Prophet Branham, the greatest of all the prophets was raised at this end time to reveal the mystery of God. Before the seals were opened, he gave a message on the Seven Church ages; which was the interpretation of Revelation Chapters 1-3.
Now, what is an interpretation? Why was this interpretation of Seven Church ages not given by any other church angel?
An interpretation is a message given to connect a word with its fulfillment or history
On the day of Pentecost, the Apostle Peter interpreted the Pentecostal experience by connecting it with the promise in the Book of Joel.
But THIS IS THAT which was spoken by the prophet Joel - Acts 2 : 16
So, an interpretation is a message which connects a word with its fulfillment or history.
The interpretation of Seven Church ages was not given by any other church messenger because the history of the complete church was not written yet.
Oh! How the last age and the coming of the Lord was was covered up to the apostles! They asked the question, but only one lived to have the Revelation; still he didnt understand it, BECAUSE THE HISTORY WAS NOT YET MADE. - The Revelation of Jesus Christ (24)
THE WRITTEN SEALS AND THE UNWRITTEN SEALS:
The Seven Seals that we are trying to Speak of (when we come this time) are the Seven Written Seals, and these Seven Seals, as you know, are just the manifestation of the Seven Angels of the Seven Churches. But there are Seven other Seals that are on the back side of the Book - outside the Bible. Notice, we will get to it in a moment. . . . Now there is writing on the back of it that wasnt Written in the Book. Sirs, is this the time? (30, 37)
When the Great Prophet gave the message of the Seven Church Ages, he revealed the Seven Church age messengers and their names. Then, what is the purpose of God revealing these seven church messengers in the revelation of the Seven seal?
The Seven Seals that we are trying to speak of (When we come this time) are the Seven Written Seals, and these Seven Seals, as you know, are just the manifestation of the Seven Angels of the Seven Churches. - Sirs, is this the time? (30)
When the Great Prophet gave the message of the Seven Church ages, it was by revelation he gave it. But when the Seven Seals were revealed, it was God who revealed them directly.
... I DONT SAY THAT OF MY OWN! ITS HIM THAT SAYS IT! - God in Simplicity (19)
There are two important things that we have to consider when we study about the Seals
1. The events of a Seal
2. The revealing of these events to the church
Dont miss it now. Notice, each church age had its messenger. We know that Paul was the first messenger. And when the first trumpet sounded, and the First Seal was tore loose. Paul was the first messenger as we found. - Sirs, is this the time ? (33)
Here is the plan of it: The first thing happens, there is an announcement in the heavens first. What happened? A Seal is opened. What is that? A mystery is unfolded. And when a mystery unfolds, then a trumpet sounds. It declares a war. A plague falls, and a church age opens... And then God takes His messenger with the elect of that age and lays them away asleep, and then He drops a plague upon them who rejected it a temporary judgment. The First Seal (126)
The trumpet always denotes war. The messenger, the angel, come on earth the messenger of the hour Like Luther, like any of the messengers that we talked of. What does he do? He arrives, and a Seal Open, revealed; a trumpet sounds, and war is declared, and away they go. And then the messenger dies. He seals away this group thats put in, and a plague falls upon those who rejected it. The Sixth Seal (420)
When the Great Prophet had revealed all the written mysteries, then there came a time for revealing of unwritten mysteries, the Seals. So, Christ, who alone knew the secrets of the Seals, came as the mighty Angel of Rev. 10 to reveal the Seven Seals.
So, revealing or opening of a Seal is the interpretation of an unwritten mystery given in a symbolic expression as a vision.
That is what the Great Prophet did when he revealed the Seals. He interpreted the visions about the white horse, the Red horse and so on. While revealing the written seals He has also shown the revelations about the unwritten seals. The Thunder mysteries here and there. So, the Revelation of the Seven Seals contain the revelations of both the written seals and the unwritten seals. The church picked up the revelations of the written seals but not the revelations of the unwritten seals, as it was not the time for the church to have the revelation about the Thunder Mysteries.
Now, the church has come to the very time of the coming of the Lord that He has revealed the Thunder Mysteries to the True Church to have the Rapturing Faith.
When the Great Prophet opened the seals, he gave the revelation of the visions given in the Book of Revelation Chapter 6. And we know that the Revelation of the visions (Seals) dovetailed with the word, the History and the Interpretation of the word.
Now, the vision plus the word, plus the history, plus the church ages; and all blend together. So, I could truly say that to the best of my understanding and according to the word of God and the vision and the revelation, the interpretation thereof is THUS SAITH THE LORD The Seventh Seal (579)
One of the very important purposes of God opening the written seals is to show what is meant by opening of seals. Because before the Rapture to the church. When God says that something has to be revealed or something has to happen in future, the devil always sends impersonations to confuse the people, and to make them doubt when God sends The Genuine thing The devil has already put many people on the scene to claim this message of Revelation of Thunders. By the Spirit of God we can easily differentiate the Genuine from the false as the early Christians did.
I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou can't not bear them which are evil; and thou hast TRIED THEM WHICH SAY THEY ARE APOSTLES, AND ARE NOT, AND HAST FOUND THEM LIARS - Revelation 2:2
Thats the way with the church ages and Seals and all the rest of it. And when anybody thinks that he has those seven thunders, if it dont compare with the rest of the word, theres something wrong. Its got to came THUS SAITH THE LORD- The Fourth Seal (284)
God opened the written seals through the Great Prophet Branham to lay a pattern for the opening of the unwritten seals.
PATTERN OF OPENING A SEAL
The various elements that are connected in the opening of a Seal are:
1. THE WORD
2. THE HISTORY
3. THE INTERPRETATION
4. THE VISION
5. THE REVELATION OF THE VISION
First the interpretation of the WORD has to come to connect the WORD with the HISTORY. Then we must have THE VISION to give a symbolic expression of the Seal. Finally the REVELATION has to come to blend all these things together. If the revelation is from God, then it will dovetail with THE WORD, THE HISTORY, and THE INTERPRETATION. Then the revelation of the vision will be Thus saith the Lord.
INTERPRETATION OF THE WORD
OPENING OF A SEAL
If any person claims that he has got the revelation of Thunders and his message is not of the same Gods preset pattern of the opening of the seals, his message is not of God.
For the written seals.
1. the WORD is Rev. Chapters 1-3.
2. the HISTORY is the church history,
3. the INTERPRETATION is the message of the Seven Church Ages,
4. the VISION is given in Rev. Chapter 6.
5. the REVELATION OF THE VISION is the message of the The Revelation of the Seven Seals given by the Great Prophet.
Now, as a preliminary step, let us set the various elements that are needed for opening of the Seventh Seal..
I. THE WORD
And when he had opened the Seventh Seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour - Revelation 8:1
This seventh seal is of such a great secret of God that nothing is mentioned here in the Scripture except about the silence in heaven for half an hour. But this seal has to be revealed before the rapture; otherwise the Bride cannot attain perfection and have the Rapturing faith to go in the Rapture. This mystery of the Seventh Seal was revealed to the Great Prophet and it remained closed to the church it was not the time for the church to know it.
Though nothing is mentioned in this Scripture of Rev. 8:1, the WORD for this seal must be same where in the Scripture. Because it cannot be outside the Book. Only by revelation we can fix up the Word for this seal. It is something like a question generally given to students asking them to fill up a blank with the suitable word given within the bracket. The word for this Seventh Seal must be some where in the Book of Revelation. If you search the messages of the Great Prophet patiently somewhere you will be sure to got the answer for this. By the help of the Spirit of God we can fix up these things.
Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them. - Isaiah 34:16
Do you see? The message will not come by some great mights or powers, BUT BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD! The Message of Grace (8)
Its the Spirit of God that gives the message to the people. Its the spirit of God that confirms the Word. - The Message of Grace (11)
Without the help of the spirit of God there is no chance for any man to have this message of the Seventh Seal.
... If we dont know it, and it wont be known til that time... The Seventh Seal (576)
...And here when the Seventh Seal, when He opened it, He also omitted it again, see. So we see that it is a complete mystery... - The Seventh Seal (577)
...And were now coming up to the last seal tonight, the Lord willing. And its a very mysterious seal very, very, because its not even... Its not even mentioned in the Scriptures nowhere - no symbols, anything to hold onto. Its got to come right direct from Heaven. -Questions & Answers on the Seals (457)
Look! I want to say one morething. Closely now, dont miss this. How striking! From the Seventh angels (messenger of the Seventh Seal) Message and REVELATIONS 10 WAS SEVENTH SEAL Feast of the trumpets (38)
So, the WORD for the seventh seal is Rev. 10.
II. THE HISTORY
History is a written facts of the past events. The events of yesterday have become a history of Today and the events of Today will be a history of tomorrow.
The Great Prophet studied the complete church history up to his time and has connected it with the Scripture Revelation chapters one to three. That is the Book. The Seven Church Ages In that message and in the message of the Seven Seals he has tied all the loose ends that were left untied during the Seven Church Ages. Now, there are certain loose ends that are yet to be tied and explained to the church.
They are :
1. The Mystery of Seven Thunders.
2. The Mystery of the Manifested Sons of God
3. Thy Mystery of the God head restored to Man
4. The Mystery of His coming
5. The Mystery of the Head Stone
6. The Mystery of the Third Pull
7. The Mystery of the Seventh Seal.
These loose ends have to be tied together and explained by the Spirit of God to dovetail the Spoken Word of God. These mysteries were kept hidden in the white stone The Thunder Mysteries.
Now, all the Mysteries of Justification, sanctification, Baptism of the Holy Ghost is done explained. Now, picking up the loose ends of that which is concealed in the Seven Seals; not the Seven Churches, the Seven Seals revealed the Mysteries. And then He opened this thing up at the top and found rock in there, WHITE BUT HAD NEVER BEEN WROTE ON, IS A MYSTERY. The Third Exodus (42)
Only the revelation of these mysteries is going to give the rapturing faith to the Bride and make her attain the full stature of Christ with the Perfect Mind of Christ.
This is that SOMETHING which the Great Prophet was repeatedly mentioning in His various messages. This SOMETHING the Great Prophet know it for himself, because the Lord by His sovereignty had revealed the entire mystery of God to him. But he was forbidden to make it known to the Church.
There are two things hidden in that SOMETHING
1.Something that was happening in the life and the ministry of the Great Prophet which he was telling as, something is happening now
2. Something that is happening right now at this very time of His coming, which the Great Prophet was telling as, something is fixing to happen
Now, the Lord has already brought this SOMETHING to come to pass. And this SOMETHING is no more a mystery because it has already been fulfilled. Now, this has become a history.
Now, this fulfillment of this SOMETHING has become the HISTORY of the WORD, Rev. 10:1-7. The church is now actually in the period of the Seventh Seal since the time of the visitation of the Seven Angels to the Great Prophet. This Seventh Seal period will end at the Rapture, when the Lord comes for His Bride.
Now, what is the modern History of the church since the time of the Great Prophet?
The Lord God by His sovereignty had raised the Great Prophet as the fulfillment of Malachi 4:5:6. And various other Scriptures pertaining to this end time were fulfilled in the life and the ministry of the Great Prophet. As the Seventh Church Angel he revealed all the written Mysteries, and later on he revealed the Seven Seals. Thus he has revealed the entire mystery of God.
Before the Seven Seals were revealed Seven Angels come from the ETERNITY and visited the Great Prophet on February 28, 1963 at the Sun set Mountain in Arizona. Another very important event that happened in his life was the overshadowing of the Pillar of fire on the Great Prophet Branham on the same Sun set Mountain before preaching the Messages Who is this Melchisedec? and Marriage and Divorce. He connects this event with Bro. Roy Robersons dream which is naratted in the message Standing in the Gap.
When the Seal is opened these three things are revealed
1. What God did in the past
2. What God is doing in the present
3. What God is going to do in the future
Out of these three things only the first was made known to the church. The other two things were not made known to the church in the days of the Great Prophet. Because these two things were hidden in the Mysteries of Thunders, which was to be only at the coming time of the Lord.
Now, the church has come to the very time of the coming of the Lord and the Lord by His Sovereignty has revealed the Thunder mysteries in an EASTERN country, INDIA.
...but theres an hour coming now when something is fixing to take place. The Message will go to another nation, another people... Gods provided way
In this winding up time, the Lord has already raised, Seven Manifested Sons of God to reveal the mysteries hidden since the foundation of the world and to set up THE TRUE CHURCH, the Real Bride. Through the Seventh Angel (the Seventh of the manifested Sons of God), the HOLY SPIRIT has revealed the mysteries of the Thunders. Thus, He has fulfilled the last ministry that is hidden in the Scripture Rev. 10:7. This is a gist of the Modern History of the Church. If this HISTORY is correct it will dovetail with the WORD.
And I want to speak about that mountain, next Sunday morning, the Lord willing. Got a GREAT REVELATION, something further that I cant hardly keep from telling it tonight. But I have, see, and its just constantly all the time one thing happening after the other. See? Itll never stop happening, for it was THUS SAITH THE LORD! Spiritual food in due season (15)
Junior Jackson listening in, you remember the dream he had that I interpreted going towards the setting of the Sun? And this happened on SUNSET MOUNTAIN! Its the evening time, Sunset time. The Sunset message through a setting of HISTORY, a setting of prophecy rather, being fulfilled. And it shall be Light at the evening time upon Sunset Mountain in the Coronado Forest, forty miles north of Tucson. Get on the map and see if Sunset Peak there. Thats exactly where it happened. I never know it till the other day.
Everything, that that shall never die, its constantly unrolling itself. From the very thing happening, to the picture being Jesus standing looking at us and now exactly on Sunset Mountain and the Sunset Light. The evening Light has come, God vindicating himself. What is it? It is a fact that God and Christ are one. The White How many seen it, the white wig upon Him, as we taken in Revelation other nothing. In Him dwells the fulness of the Godhead bodily. The Angels themselves was His wig. Amen!
Whats happened upon Mount Sunset? God confirming His word. Thats what all this noise is about. Notice, its GOD FULFILLING HIS PROMISED WORD AGAIN, of Revelation 10:1-7, And in the days of the sounding of the seventh angels message, the mystery of God should be finished. The hidden mystery of Revelation 10: 1-7 THE LAST MESSAGE TO THE LAST CHURCH AGE. Fulfills exactly, in this age. St. Luke 17:30.
The day when the Son of Man shall be revealed.
And the God of Heaven promised the evening time would have evening light. Three years ago this mystery was a PROPHECY, what time is it, Sir? But now its HISTORY. ITS PASSED. The promise is fulfilled. What time is it, Sir, and whats this attraction? GOD FULFILLING HIS WORD! Hes the same yesterday, today, and forever. What is the attraction on the mountain (23, 24)
III. THE INTERPRETATION OF REV. 10:1-7
The interpretation is displaying of the word with its fulfillments
And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud; and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the Sun and his feet as pillars of fire:
And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth. - Rev. 10 : 1,2
The descriptions in the verse show that it is Christ coming down from Heaven. The second verse shows the purpose of His Coming.
... a little book open...
This shows that He comes from Heaven to reveal the entire mystery of God; because the open book indicates the opening of the WORD, that is revealing of the WORD.
... and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth... one person cannot stand with his one foot on the earth and the other foot on the sea.
The significance of the left foot on the earth and the right foot on the sea is as follows.
Generally we keep our left foot first when we board a train or bus or climb up a stair case. Even the first astronaut, when he landed on the moon, first he placed his left foot on the surface of the moon. Athletes when they get ready for the running race, they keep their left foot first. When the training is given for the cadets, they are taught to keep the steps as left, right, left...
In natural things, the left foot is placed for the first step. The Great Prophet says that the natural types the spiritual.
The left foot of the Mighty Angel on the earth signifies the FIRST STAGE of the opening of the mysteries in America by the Great Prophet Branham. That was the FIRST CLIMAX of the Message of the Great Prophet when he opened the Seals in 1963.
The significance of the right foot on the sea is that the right foot stands for the Second step of the opening of the mysteries by the Holy Ghost The Sea represents the country from where the Holy Spirit is sending out the revelation of the Seventh Seal.
Which is the country from where the Holy Spirit is sending the Message of the Seventh Seal? The written Word and the Spoken word are sufficient to understand the entire mystery of God.
Now, the WORD for this Seventh Seal is Rev. 10:1-7. Here, we see the mighty Angel coming down from heaven; and setting His left foot on the earth and the right foot on the sea. Through the Modern history of the church we know that the Mighty Angel placed His left foot in America when the Great Prophet revealed the Seals.
The Mighty Angel has placed His left foot in America, and where has He kept His right foot as second step, to open the Seventh Seal?
He is the North Star, He is the Ultimate, He is the Absolute. And if He is the North Star... Theres only one thing thatll point to the north star, thats your compass that youre sailing with. And the compass that Im trying you to sail with is the WORD, and the WORD always points to Him Spiritual Food in Due Season (1,2)
Here, the WORD is the Mighty Angel. If He has set His left foot in America, which is in West on the globe, and is looking to the North naturally His right foot will be in the East on the globe.
Now, the Real Bride knows that she has received the Message of the Seventh Seal from India, which is in East in the globe. India is a country of different peoples of different races, speaking different languages with diverse culture and customs. And we know in the Scripture the sea represents peoples and multitudes.
When the Great Prophet received the commission from God through the Seven Angels to open the Seven Seals the FULNESS of Christ was placed in him and he was made THE CHRIST to open the Seven Seals, when the Great Prophet Branham opened the Seven Seals it was not man Branham who opened the Seven Seals but it was THE CHRIST BRANHAM, THE FIRST CHRIST REPRODUCED from among men.
The Seventh Seal brings Him back to earth. The Lamb come and took the Book out of the right hand of Him and sat down, and claimed what He owned what He had redeemed. Is that right? Its always been that THIRD PULL.
Three is perfection. The ministry come to its perfection when it REPRODUCED CHRIST again in natural amongst human beings. As was predicted, As it was in the days of Lot. Souls in prison (50)
The Great Prophet has THE THREE-PULLS in his ministry. It was God placing His fulness in the predestinated BODY of the Great Prophet Branham in three stages. We know that in Gods numerology the number three is the number of completion. Opening of the Seven Seals was the last phase of the Third Pull in his Ministry. At the last phase of the Great Third Pull ministry God successfully and completely placed HIS FULNESS in the BODY of THE GREAT PROPHET WILLIAM MARRION BRANHAM and made HIM THE CHRIST to open the Great Seven Seals. Amen! Hallelujah!
In Revelation Chapter 5, it says that:
...the lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof - Rev. 5:5
We know that the lion of the tribe of Judah and the Root of David is the Lord Jesus Christ. But He died as the FIRST CORN OF WHEAT to reproduce MANY GRAINS OF WHEAT at this HARVEST TIME.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone; but if it die, it bringeth forth MUCH FRUIT. - John 12:24
When a seed is sown, first it dies in the soil and then the life in the seed comes out as a sprout. In the end the life comes into the fruits, stalks of corns. When we reap the harvest WE DON'T SEE THE SEED which was sown into the ground. The seed disappears and only the life goes out and produces the corns. One seed of WHEAT has reproduced many corns of wheat. We see the seed only in the image of the corns of the harvest.
If we dont see the ORIGINAL SEED in the natural harvest. How are we going to see the Lord in the Body of Jesus with nail prints? Is God going to contradict. His own FIRST BIBLE? No, God will not violate His own law!
In the Old Testament, when an animal was offered as a sacrifice, the sacrifice was burnt on the altar. That was the sacrifice of the Old Testament. The Scripture says that the Old Testament was a shadow and type of the New Testament. When there was no chance to see the animal which was once offered as a sacrifice, how are we going to see the Lord again in the same body of Jesus?
The Great Prophet says that the Bible is given for us to know for sure the ways of the Lord.
How that God, in His infinite wisdom, has foreshadowed all things to us; that we might by these things know of certain, what lays before us. MADE IT SO PLAIN, that God and His WORD, and the NATURE and His Universe, is so perfectly arranged together, that even the the sinner can see something is fixing to take place. God has so arranged it. No one is without excuse. - Hearing, Recognizing, Acting on the Word of God (2)
The Lord cannot be in the Body of Jesus for eternity because He cannot be the eternal son.
...eternal sonship, as they talk about. How can He be an eternal son, when eternity never began or never ends? And a son is something that is begotten of. How can it make sense? - Sirs, is this the time?(36)
God became the WORD and the WORD became flesh to die as the ransom for our sins. Then after the ascension he became the quickening Spirit. That is why He said I come forth from the Father,... and go to the Father. - John 16:28
... the last Adam was made a quickening spirit - I Corin 15:45
...the last Adam (Christ) became a life-giving Spirit - Amplified Version
Now the Lord is the Spirit... - II Corin 3:17
The eternal purpose of God is to dwell in the bodies of Men.
Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? - I Corin. 3:16
God has been manifesting in three dispensations. God, being a Spirit, cannot manifest Himself without a body.
1. In the dispensation of the Father, His Body was the WORD
2. In the dispensation of the Son, His Body was Jesus.
3. In the dispensation of the Holy Spirit, His Body is the Church.
... the church, which is his body, the fulness of Him that filleth all in all - Eph. 1:22,23
The church is a body of Believers. Among the Believers God has chosen the first body in which the fullness was placed, to keep His name for eternity. This Mystery, the Lord was trying to show as shadows and types in the Old Testament.
All that openeth the matrix is mine; and every firstling among thy cattle, whether ox or sheep, that is male.- Exo. 34:19
The first of the first fruits of thy land thou shalt bright unto the house of the LORD thy God... - Exo. 34:26
As it is written in the law of the Lord, Every male that openeth the womb shall be called holy to the Lord. - Luke 2:23
The Great Prophet Branham was the first person to be filled with all the fulness of God. The Lord has predestinated the BODY of the Great Prophet Branham to be the first BODY to keep His fullness and take that BODY for HIMSELF TO KEEP HIS NAME for eternity. The Great Apostle Paul saw this promise as a shadow in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Hence, when He (CHRIST) entered into the world, He said, sacrifices and offerings. You have not desired, but instead you have MADE READY A BODY FOR ME! - Hebrews 10:5 (Amplified)
The Great Prophet has said that In the Old Testament there are patterns, types, and shadows. The old Testament was a shadow of the New Testament. THAT WHICH IS IN BOTH TESTAMENTS IS A SHADOW OF THIS DAY - Hear Ye Him
And if all the old things the Bible said in the Old Testament was shadows of the things to come, then therefore, CHRIST WAS THE SHADOW OF THINGS TO COME. - Gods chosen place of worship (9)
The Lord Jesus Christ, when He was here on the earth He kept himself as a shadow of the Son of Man that was to come in the end time. Now, we see the REAL OBJECT in the Great Prophet Branham. Amen!
The resurrected Christ, who has become the Quickening Spirit to bring forth many Christs from human beings, can only be recognized by His Characteristics.
Watch the identification there, not just the preaching, but the sign identified the WORD OF GOD made flesh in A MAN. - God is identified by His characteristics (13)
In what way did the Great Prophet Branham came short of in the signs of Messiah? If you really humble yourself before God and read the message of Look away to Jesus under the guidance of Holy spirit you will not fail to see Jesus in the Great Prophet Branham. Amen!
The Elijah of THIS DAY IS THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. He is to come according to Luke 17:30. Hes the Son of man thats to reveal himself among His people, not a man, God! - Trying to do God a Service (33)
If you read the message of the Great Prophet under the anointing of the Holy Spirit you will find many more, yes, countless number of passages to substantiate this revelation.
Then I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven, robed in a cloud, with a halo like a rainbow over his head"...Rev. 10:1 (Amplified edition)
This scripture itself is self explanatory because the science has proved the appearance of this HALO over the head of the Great Prophet Branham.
THE RESURRECTED CHRIST CANNOT BE RECOGNISED BY HIS PHYSICAL IDENTITY
Soon after His resurrection, the Lord lost His physical identity. That is why His disciples even after seeing their resurrected Lord they were not able to recognize, Him. Mary Magdalene recognized Him by His voice (John 20:16). The Emmaus disciples recognised Him by the way He broke the bread (Luke 24: 30,31). The disciples recognised Him to be the Lord when they cast their net according to His word and caught multitude of fishes (John 21: 6,7). So, we cannot recognize the resurrected Lord by His physical identity. Only by His characteristics we can recognized the resurrected Christ.
Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: Yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more - II Corn. 5:16
We are not going to see the Lord Jesus in that body with nail prints Amen!
If anybody disagrees with this revelation let him show the very same seed, which was sown into the ground, at the time of harvest. And also let him show the original animal after offering it as a burnt sacrifice.
If you cannot bring out the original seed that was sown into the ground, and if you cannot bring back the same animal which was once offered as a sacrifice, how can you expect the Lord to come in the same body in which He offered Himself as the eternal sacrifice of God? Jesus Christ was the original corn of wheat who died to bring out many corns of wheat the Christ reproduced from among human beings. Are you expecting the Lord to come in the body of Jesus with nail prints and so on? It is high time you understand the deep revelations of the Seals before you are disappointed.
The life in the original seed goes into the plant to produce stalk of corns at the harvest time. We see the original seed only in the forms of the produce of the harvest.
The Bible promises of the coming of the Lord to the Church before the Rapture. 2000 years ago He came for the Jews, now the promise is for the Gentile Church. As the Jews missed their Messiah so are the Christians are missing to see the coming of their Lord.
Do you know why the Jews missed their Messiah?
But as His First coming did not fulfill all the prophecies associated with His Coming, it is evident that there must be another coming to completely fulfill them. It was because the religious leaders of Christs day failed to distinguish between the prophecies that related to His First Coming and those that related to His Second Coming that they rejected Him. Peter tells us (I Peter 1:10,11) that prophets themselves did not clearly perceive the difference between the Sufferings and Glory of Christ. That is, they did not see that there was a TIME SPACE between the Cross and the Crown and the Cross would precede the Crown. - Dispensational Truth : Page 8 (by Clarence Larkin)
The Second coming of the Lord is set in three different and distinct phases, each phase is separated from the other by a Time Space.
When this Seventh Seal mystery in the Book of redemption was broke open....And now, as certain as I stand in the platform tonight, I had the revelation that revealed its in a THREE FOLD manner.... - The Seventh Seal (557)
Now, do you notice on the opening of this Seventh Seal, its also in a THREEFOLD mystery....- The Seventh Seal (575)
The three distinct and different phases of His coming are: Christ has to come,
1) to reveal the entire mystery to the Real Bride and prepare her for the Rapture.
2) to catch away the Bride in the Rapture.
3) To usher us into the Millennium.
Now, the first phase of His second coming is ALREADY OVER in the ministry of the Great Prophet Branham. As the Jews missed their Messiah the Church has missed its Messiah who came to reveal the entire mystery of God through the opening of the Great Seals. Now, the Church has already come into the very time for the fulfillment of the second phase of His coming.
Many prophecies related to His second coming have already been fulfilled in the Life and the ministry of the Great Prophet.
Luke 17 : 22, 26, 30 Phil. 3:20, 21
John 14 : 1-3 I Thes. 4:16
Acts 3:20 II Thes. 1:10
II Corn 5: 1-5 Rev. 3:20
Rev. 10: 1-7 etc
...Seventh Seal hasnt opened yet, you know; thats His coming - Feast of the Trumpets (25)
...Just waiting for the Seventh Seal to be identified with the coming of Christ.- What Shall I do with Jesus (42, 43)
The Seventh Seal brings Him back to earth - Souls in prison (50)
Were living in the last day, the generation that will see Jesus Christ return to the earth. And I say to you to night again, this day this scripture is fulfilled in your sight. - This day this scripture is fulfilled(34)
The last Book in the Bible (Revelations) shows us that there will be a RETURN OF HIM in the last days TO THE GENTILE CHURCH -True sign overlooked (35,36)
The Angel of the Lord...said to me, Ill meet you in there! I saw his hand pointed to the little room...Then the Angel of the Lord and I descended into the little room, what he said to me there I will have to keep a secret the rest of my life. -Tent Vision -This day this scripture is fulfilled (40)
Then He took me to this place, set me down in this room where I was at, and then He told me what to do for the third time. Now, Christian friends, when I leave this world, that will still be in by bosom. But you mark my work WHATS GOING TO TAKE PLACE....
....The Lord is fixing to visit His people in a great, marvelous something friends. It has to be a secret in my own heart, but as you know me, and you believe me, love me, and respect me as Gods servant just remember Im telling you a blessing is on the road. Thats right, Its coming. -Visions and Prophecy (19,20)
So, the secret of the Third Pull which the Angel of the Lord told to the Great Prophet and which was kept as a secret in His Heart was actually revealed and kept hidden in His messages. It was revealed in such a way that it remained a revealed mystery until this very time of His coming. Now, the Thunders have revealed what that secret of the Third Pull is. The revelation is that The Lord had again visited His Church at this end time through the ministry of the Great Prophet Branham.
...When God in Heaven known I could die on this platform right now, you you just ought to walk ground awhile ... Its just... Its TREMENDOUS. We see God came from Heaven, stand before groups of man, and stand there, declare himself just as He ever did.... And thats the TRUTH and this BIBLE OPEN. See? Were here! - The Rapture (30)
Its not meet to take the Childrens bread and give it to dogs Didnt say the same thing to the Syrophenician Women? He had sent to His own. That is right. And thats who He came... He never went to the Gentiles.
And now TODAY HE VISITS THE GENTILES IN THEIR TIME, and its not meet... you say, why is it that the Message dont go out in these great big places, these big crusades, like amongst the denomination?
Its not their food. Its not the Churchs (so called) food. Its the BRIDE FOOD. Its spiritual food in season. - Spiritual food in due season (15)
In a humble little church like ours, THAT THE ALMIGHTY HAS COME and regard the low estate of His people. -Sirs is this the time? (45)
The messages of the great Prophet contain many countless in number, passages to substantiate this revelation. After receiving this revelation you will definitely see that the message of the Great Prophet will be a new message for you.
Now, at this time of the THIRD PULL, the very same God who manifested through the Great Prophet is now manifesting Himself through His sons, the manifested sons of God by revealing the mysteries hidden since the foundation of the world. The Third Pull is God visiting His people to place HIS FULNESS into them.
...And the third flight was angels! Not birds, Angels! And that is the end time. That is all of it. Will this be the time Brethren? Is this the time? -Sirs, is this the time? (50)
I could see those angels, those shaped back wings traveling faster than sound could travel. They came from eternity in a split like the twinkling of an eye. -Sirs is this the time? (26)
They came from Eternity This shows the ministry of the manifested sons of God of revealing the mysteries hidden since the foundation of the world.
But there will come on this earth, by Gods promise, a genuine servant of God, identified by God (by His word being the answer of this day), thatll set the Bride in order (a real little minority of the Church) and take it up. Thats right! Hell introduce, Behold, theres the one I talked about, see, thatll come - Modern events are made clear by prophecy (41)
And these Seven Seals was not to be opened, Revelation 10, until the sounding of the last earthly angel on earth. Revelation 10:7. See? And in the days of the sounding of the last angels Message, seventh angel, the mystery of God should be finished in that age.... And thats the age that were living in. - The Rapture (16)
And here when the Seventh Seal, when He opened it, He also omitted it again, see. So we see that it is a complete mystery, therefore, the hour is not yet for this mystery to be known, therefore, were this far and the rest of it wil be known right around about the time that Jesus appears on earth again for His Bride. - The Seventh Seal (577)
Now, what does the Prophet mean by ...it will be known right around about the time that Jesus appears on earth again for His Bride?
The Great Prophet, Himself was interpreted his message.
Everyone of you cleanse all your heart, lay aside everything, every weight. Keep it out of your way. Dont let nothing bother you. Dont be scared. There is nothing to be sacred about. If Jesus is coming, it is very...it is a moment that the whole world was groaned and cried for. - Sirs, Is this the time (53)
But the Scripture says that the whole world is groaning and waiting for the appearance of the manifested Sons of God.
It is not the literal Jesus Christ that appeared in these last days on the earth. But the quickening power that was in Him has, now at this harvest time, produced Christ from among human beings as the produce of the Harvest. The fullness of Christ that was manifested in the Great Prophet is now manifesting at this time of the Third Pull through the manifested sons of God.
Now coming back to the opening of the Seals, just before the lamb came to receive the Sealed Book one of the elders announced that ... the Lion of the tribe of Judah, and the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals there of.
But, when the Lamb took the book and opened it, the Great Prophet says that the people who were there were perplexed! What caused this perplexity?
No angels singing, no praises, no alter service, no nothing! There was silence-hushed, deadly silence in Heaven for a half hour. All the host of Heaven was silent for this half hour, when this Seventh Seal mystery in the Book of Redemption was broke open. Think of it; but its broke. The Lamb breaks it. You know what? THEY WERE AWED BY IT, I believe. They didnt know. There it was; they just stopped. Why? What is it? - The Seventh Seal (557)
...THEY WERE AWED BY IT ... WHY? WHAT IS IT ?
When one of the elders announced that the Lion of the Tribe of Judah and the off-spring of David had prevailed to receive the Book and to break the Seals, the people were expecting for the Lord Jesus to come in His body, which was offered as the sacrifice and open the Seals. But contrary to the thinking and expectations of the people there came a man with the BLOOD of THE LORD JESUS on him and received the Book and broke open it. That is why they were awed when they saw a man with the Blood of Jesus on him receiving and breaking the Seals.
...stood a Lamb AS IT HAD BEEN SLAIN ... Rev. 5:6
Here this Lamb of Rev.5 was not the Lamb, the Lord Jesus Christ, who died as the RANSOM for our sins. Once an animal was offered as a sacrifice there was no chance for that animal to appear again. Once a seed is sown and it comes out as a plant and yields its fruits, there is no chance to see the original seed again. If these were shadows in the Old Testament, how can we look for the Lord to come in the body with nail prints and break open the Seals?
Generally a Lamb stands for a believer; and flock for the church. Here, this Lamb which received the Book is a LAMB with the TOKEN on it. Blood is the life and the TOKEN is the LIFE OF GOD. So, the Lamb that received and opened the Book was A MAN in whom was placed all the fulness of God, and who was covered with the blood of the Lord. Because this Lamb was covered with the blood it appeared as it had been slain. This is the Speckled Bird of the Old Testament. We know that this is none other than the Great Prophet William Marrion Branham. Amen! Hallelujah!
Here are some substantiating passages from the message vindicated by Heaven.
The Seventh Seal brings Him back to earth. The Lamb came and took the Book out of the right hand of Him and sat down, and claimed what He owned-what He had redeemed. Is that right? Its always been that Third Pull.
Three is perfection. The ministry came to its PERFECTION WHEN IT REPRODUCED CHRIST AGAIN IN NATURAL AMONGST HUMAN BEINGS. As was predicted, As it was in the days of Lot - Souls in prison (50)
- The Church was predestinated without spot or wrinkle, shes going to be there, and the Lamb died for that purpose. Then when the last name on that Book was redeemed, the Lamb came forth and took the Book. IM THE ONE THAT DID IT.
The Angels, the Cherubims, the four and twenty elders, the beast, everything, uncrowned themselves, fell down before the THRONE. and said, worthy art thou John said, Everything in heaven and earth heard me hollering, Amen! Screaming, hallelujahs and praises to God. - Souls in Prison (25)
One of the four elders announced that the Lion of tribe of Judah and the root of David had prevailed to receive the book and open it. Just now the Thunders revealed that the Lamb which received the Book and opened it was the Great Prophet Branham. This shows that the blood of the Lord has made the Great Prophet the True Son of David, the king that comes in glory Amen! Hallelujah!
In Rev. 19 we see that the coming king of kings, and Lord of Lords ......was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood; and His name is called The Word of God. The Lord Jesus did not shed His blood for Himself. He does not need any cleansing blood as He is the Holy God. The Holy God shed His blood only for us. Here the Lord God comes in the body of man washed by His own blood. The eternal purpose of God is to dwell in the bodies of the human beings. The church is the eternal body of Christ. The church is a body of believers. Among the believers God by His Sovereignty had chosen a Body for Himself to keep His NAME for eternity. Amen ! Hallelujah !
Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the spirit of God dwelleth in you? - I Corin. 3:16
The eyes of your understanding being enlightened ; that ye may know what is the hope of His calling, and what the riches of the glory of HIS INHERITANCE IN THE SAINTS - Ephesians1:18
We will study this in more detail as the Lord takes us into the messages,
The revelation of the True Son of Man
The revelation of the coming of the Lord
THE MINISTRY OF THE GREAT PROPHET IS IDENTIFIED WITH THE COMING OF THE LORD !
The last Book in the Bible (Revelations) shows us that there will be a RETURN OF HIM in the last days to the GENTILE CHURCH -True sign overlooked (35,36)
He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also. Jesus said that see? No were going to have, we got a ministry coming thats just exactly like the LIFE OF CHRIST. What does that ministry identify? THE COMING OF THE LORD". - Adoption (107 36)
Were living in the last day, the generation that will see Jesus Christ RETURN TO EARTH. This day this scripture is fulfilled in your sight... - This day this scripture is fulfilled.... (34)
After almost two thousand years GOD HAS VISITED AGAIN - Going beyond the Camp (27)
The Third pull is God visiting His people to place His fulness in them. He had visited the Church in the Body of the Great Prophet Branham when the Seven seals were revealed. Then it was kept a secret. Now it is revealed in the second climax.
Rev. 10: 1-7, which is the Seventh seal, is the coming of the Lord to His Church to reveal the entire mystery of God and thus to place His fulness in His True Church. But the coming was not in the Body of Jesus with the nail prints. But it was in the Body of a man who had been made to Christ by the very Blood of Jesus Christ. When the Mighty Angel came, The Thunders had uttered their voices to proclaim that the Lord Jesus Christ, was coming in the Body of the Great Prophet B-R-A-N-H-A-M to open the Seven Seals.
This mystery was revealed to the Great Prophet but it was not the time for the Church to receive it.
In the Amplified version the Scripture Rev. 10 : 1 Then I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven, robed in a cloud, WITH A HALO like a rainbow over his head is self explanatory, Because the world know the scientifically proved fact that the Great Prophet Branham was the man who had THE HALO of the supernatural light over his head.
When the Seals were revealed this mystery was not made known to the church. Only the revelation of the mystery what God had been doing till that time of revealing the Seals were revealed to the Church (the revelation of the white horse, Red horse......). But the mystery of God placing His fulness in the Great Prophet Branham and making Him as the CHRIST to reveal the Seals was not revealed to the Church. That is why the Great Prophet was telling that something is happening. Now the Holy Spirit has revealed it to the Bride for her to receive the same fulness and to have the rapturing faith.
And I want you to get built up now in the .... this Holy Oracles of God, in the Faith, the faith of this hour. The Faith! Its going to take more faith than ever was in any age. for this has to be rapturing faith, be taken up. And so we want you to believe tonight in ALL THAT YOU HAVE SEEN, HEARD, THE WORD that you have heard preached, the the signs and wonders that you have seen done. We want you to accumulate all that together in your heart, and consider whether if that be God or not. - Spiritual Food in due Season(1)
Hes sovereign, He does what he wants to. But stand there and wait to see what He will do, then feel IT BREAK THROUGH ON YOU LIKE THAT - What is the attraction on the mountain (3)
This opening of the Seals was the First Climax. Now after 20 years the same anointing that was on the Great Prophet has now came to an Eastern Country to reveal the mystery of the Seventh Seal, which remained a mystery until this very time of His coming.
Now the Holy Spirit has come to an Eastern Country India to reveal this Seventh Seal.
And notice the next thing now, I took some kind of a bar and cut it off, and on the inside was white rock that had nothing wrote on it. And at that time I started to the West. And I told them all I siad, Dont go out West. Stay here and look on this til with the Holy Spirit INTERPRETING this UNWRITTEN WORD. Now, if that isnt perfectly with God. Almighty, I want you to know what is. What am I trying to say this for, friends? Its to show you that WERE AT THE END TIME - The Seventh Seal (566)
In the entire world, India is a very peculiar country of people of different races speaking different languages, with diverse culture and customs.
We know that in the Scripture the sea represents People and multitudes
The mighty Angel Keeping His Right Foot on the sea signifies of the message of the second climax going from India which lies on the EASTERN SIDE of the globe.
Rev. 10:1-7 is the WORD for the Seventh Seal. The mighty Angel of Rev.10 : 1 7 had set His left foot in American which is in the western part of the globe.
He is the North star, He is the ultimate, He is the Absolute. And if He is the North star ........Theres only one thing thatll point to the north star thats your COMPASS that I m trying you to sail is the WORD, and the WORD always points to Him - Spiritual food in due season (2)
If a man keeps his left foot on the western side and looks to the North direction naturally His right foot will be on the Eastern side. Now, here the Written Word and the Spoken Word are dovetailing with the interpretation of the word Rev . 10:1-7
THE MYSTERY OF GOD
But in the days of the voice of the Seventh Angel, When He shall being to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as He hath declared to His servants the prophets -Rev. 10:7
NOW WHAT IS THIS MYSTERY OF GOD?
God is the interpreter of His Own Word. The Great Prophet has already interpreted his message.
But when the Seventh Angel finished his message, his prophesying of the day, then the mystery of God should finished. Everybody known the Bible says that THE MYSTERY OF GOD, WHAT GOD IS, WHO GOD IS , and all about the way into the baptism and things, that should all be settled in that day - The Evening Messenger
The invisible God became the visible God, the Christ to manifest Himself. All along through 6000 years God has been manifesting Himself through His prophets and kings. 2000 Years ago the Lord Jesus came to manifest Himself. Even that manifestation was only a shadow of the Real object that was to come.
Christ was the shadow of things to come - Gods chosen place of worship (9)
In the Old Testament there are patterns, types, and shadows. The Old Testament was a shadow of the New Testament. That which is in both Testaments is a shadow of this day. Various truths can be had from certain portions of Scripture. - Hear Ye him
All through 6000 years God has been changing His mask from ages to ages to manifest His mystery. Now at this end time when He placed His fullness in the Great Prophet to open the Seven Seals His Mystery came to an end. All through the Seven Church ages people knew Christ only as the Alpha, the Beginning. Now, the revelation of God head placed in Christ. Branham has made us to see the Christ as Omega., the end. Because the mystery of God came to an end when God poured Himself into the great prophet Branham. The Mystery of God was finished with the Seventh Angel, the Great Prophet Branham when the God head was finally placed in Him. Now , the revelation of this Mystery is coming to an end through this Seventh Angel (c) - the Seventh of the Manifested Sons of God.
When the Mystery of God came to an end in the Seventh Angel Branham, the door of mercy begin to close.
by seeing those Seals revealed and the Great things thats taken place right here in the last few years - I believe with all my heart that the door of mercy is beginning to close." - The Fifth Seal (390)
Now when the revelation of this Finishing of the mystery of God is revealed through this Seventh Angel (c) the door of mercy is completely closing.
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. - Rev . 10 : 7
..there should be time no longer. The entire plan of redemption is coming to the end. Gods purpose at His plan of redemption is over. Amen ! Hallelujah!
THE THIRD PULL
Many things are involved in the THIRD PULL. Now let us consider one aspect of this THIRD PULL. We will study the Third Pull in detail as our Great Teacher, The Holy Ghost takes us into the Message on The Third Pull.
The Great Prophet says that the Third Pull is revealing of the mysteries:
And remember the THIRD PULL was the opening of the SEVEN SEALS to reveal the HIDDEN TRUTH thats been SEALED in the word, Do you see it? - The Anointed ones at the end time (61)
In the Message of What is the attraction on the mountain the Great Prophet connects this Message with the Third Pull and the Text that he had chosen for this message is Mathews 21 : 1- 11
So, Ive got my mind set on this Message. Thats that Third Pull, and Its the one I must be loyal and reverent to Mathews 21 : 1 11. I said that so you could be watching for the - What is the Attraction on the Mountain (5)
The event narrated in the Scripture Mathews 21 : 1 11 is fulfillment of the prophecy in the Zechariah 9 : 9 .
Rejoice greatly. O! daughter of Zion; Shout, O ! daughter of Jerusalem; 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
This event of Mathews 21 :1 11 was only a shadow and type of the real event that had taken place at the beginning of the Rapturing age when the Great prophet Branham opened the Seals which was the fulfillment of the Word. Rev. 10 : 1 7.
S H A D O W : Mathew 21: 1 11
REAL OBJECT: Rev . 10 : 1 7 ; Rev . 5: 6,7
Shadow : Mathews 21 : 1 11; At the end of the dispensation of the Son, the Lord Jesus, Christ went riding on an ass. A donkey is used to carry people and luggage.
The Great Prophet says that the donkey which carried the Lord was a WHITE DONKEY !
On top of mount Olives came a little WHITE DONKEY..his Rider was non other than Gods ANOINTED MESSIAH of the hour
When Jesus entered His temple, riding or entered Jerusalem , riding on a little WHITE DONKEY" - What is the Attraction on the Mountain (8, 15)
Now, now , Jesus, the Messiah, rode into the city of Jerusalem, triumph , on the back of a WHITE MULE on palm Sunday, April , the 2nd , A.D. 30. - The Seventh Weeks of Daniel (105)
In this event of SHADOWS AND TYPES, what does this WHITE DONKEY represent? One thing we are very sure of is that the white donkey was a carrier of the Lord Jesus Christ. This was at the end of the dispensation of the Son; when the Lord was in His physical body, Jesus.
THE REAL OBJECT OF THE SHADOWS OF THE SCRIPTURE
In the dispensation of the Holy Ghost, the Lord had became the QUICKENING SPIRIT and man has become His Carrier. Then, whom does this WHITE DONKEY? represent ? In the Message of Sirs, Is this the Time?: the Great Prophet has dealt with two kinds of Seals (Written and Unwritten) and opening of those Seals and two Seventh Angels who open them. The Text that he had chosen for this Message was Rev. 10 : 1 7.
Now , in the 10th Chapter of the Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ, I wish to read the first few verses the first seven verses....And my text (if I should call it that ) tonight is this: Is this the Sign of the End, Sir?
We all know that we are living in a glorious time for the Church, but a horrible time for the unbeliever. We are living in one of the most dangerous times of all all that ever since the world began. No prophet, no apostle, never in any time, ever lived in such a time as we live now. This is THE END. - Sirs, Is this the time? (6,7)
The Book of revelation was written in the year A.D. 96, quite a long time after the Church was founded on the revelation that Jesus was the Christ the Son of the Living God. So, naturally the Revelation of Jesus Christ hidden in the Book of Revelation must be something other than the revelation that Jesus was Christ.
Where does this Other revelation of Jesus Christ lie in the book of Revelation ? This new and final revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ is lying in the Rev. 10: 1 7. This is the revelation that makes us to see the Christ as Omega. The Church, All through the Seven Church ages saw the Lord Jesus Christ, only as Alpha , the Beginning. Now , in this Rapturing age the True Church, the Real Bride knows the Lord Jesus Christ as both Alpha and Omega. Amen!
........ When He was to look upon as Alpha and Omega.- Sirs, Is this the time? (34)
THE REAL OBJECT THE OMEGA
Rev . 10 : 1 7 is the Real object of the ENTIRE BIBLE. All the Scriptures focus their light only on this Rev. 10 : 1- 7.
The event of Matt. 21 : 1 11. the Lord riding on an ass to Jerusalem, happened at the end of the Son dispensation. At that time Jesus was in His corporal body , and He used the ass as a carrier to carry Him to Jerusalem.
The Great Prophet has said that nothing happens without any reason, .What is the signification of this event of the Lord riding on the ass at end of the Son dispensation?
The Great Prophet has used this scripture as the text for the message What is the attraction on the mountain? Here in this message he connects this Scripture of Matt. 21: 1 11 with the Third Pull . Now , the Third Pull is revealing of the mysteries of God through the opening of the Seals.
...... And remember the Third Pull was the opening of them Seven Seals to reveal the HIDDEN TRUTH thats been sealed in the Word. Do you see it? -The anointed once at the end time (61)
Before opening of the Seals, the Great Prophet preached a prophetic Message, Sirs, is this the time? Here, in this message he has explained about the Third Pull, the ministry of opening of the Seals. The text chosen for this message was Rev. 10 : 1-7. Here we see that the Mighty Angel; the Christ is coming down with an open Book. This indicates that He comes to reveal the mysteries of God.
After ascension, the Lord became the quickening Spirit.
. . . the last Adam was made a quickening Spirit - I Corin. 15:45
Now the Lord is the Spirit. . .- II Corin. 3:17
In this Holy Spirit Dispensation human beings have became the carrier of the Holy Spirit.
know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? - I Corin. 3:16
All through the Seven Church ages a portion of the Holy Spirit was poured into the people as the first fruit of the Spirit. This was given as the earnest on the guarantee for the fulness of the Spirit that was to come at this time of ADOPTION.
Now, at this adoption time the FULNESS of the Holy Spirit came into the Great Prophet Branham and used his body as the carrier to open the Seals. Thus, he was made the Christ, the Lamb to open the Seven Seals, Rev. 10 : 1-7 is the fulfillment of Matt. 21 : 1-11 in reality in the life and the ministry of the Great Prophet.
Jehovah of the Old Testament, the Great Prophet has said, was the Lord Jesus of the New Testament, and He is the Holy Spirit of this day, the Rapturing age!.
Jesus and the Father was the self same person, just the same as the Holy Spirit in me, Youre looking to me preaching. but its not me . . . but the only way Hes expressed is through me, see? - Questions and Answers on Seals (520)
The very same Lord Jesus who rode on an ass in Matt. 21 : 1-11 at the end of the son Dispensation had now, at the end of the Holy Ghost dispensation rode on a THE WHITE DONKEY, the Great Prophet Branham, thus fulfilling the Scripture Rev. 10 : 1-7.
God by His sovereignty has made the great Prophet Branham Lord and Christ. He is the true Son of David. He is the coming Bridegroom, the Headstone, He is the coming king of kings and Lord of Lords. Amen!
Blessed is He that cometh in the NAME of the Lord. Hosanna to Christ Branham the True Son of David.
This is the revelation of Christ as Omega. The revelation of Jesus Christ gave the first fruits of the Spirit, to the Church. Now, the revelation of CHRIST BRANHAM has already brought the FULLNESS of the Spirit to the True Church, the Real Bride. Amen.
THE REAL BRIDE OF CHRIST IS NOW READY FOR THE RAPTURE
Dear Reader, are you ready?
If not, run to God and receive this revelation of Christ as OMEGA and be filled with the Fullness of Christ before the door is closed for ever.
My Brother, run to God before it is TOO LATE.
One can miss or forego anything in this world, BUT NOT THIS REVELATION OF CHRIST AS OMEGA.
In Matt. 21 : 1-11 the Lord rode on an ass and a colt the foal of an ass. The White Donkey represented the Great Prophet Branham. Then, what does this Colt the foal of an ass represent? You find out from God.
In these last days, at the beginning of the Rapturing age the Great Prophet opened the Seals and that was the First climax of his message. Now at the end of this Rapturing age, at this very time of the rapture the Holy Spirit has finished revealing the Seventh Seal and this is the Second Climax, the END of THE CHURCH. Amen!
Now, this is the interpretation of the Word Rev. 10 : 1-7. Out of the five things that are needed to establish the opening of a Seal we have already established the first three things, THE WORD, THE HISTORY and THE INTERPRETATION.
IV. THE VISION
Opening of a Seal is interpreting of a mystery given in a symbolic expression through a VISION. For opening up a Seal there has to be a vision. To open and reveal this Seventh Seal, first we have to ascertain the vision related to this Seventh Seal. If we search the Spoken Word of God very diligently, the Holy Spirit will help us to fix the VISION of this mysterious and unwritten Seal.
John first heard the noise of thunder just before he saw the vision of the written seals.
And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder. - Rev. 6 : 1
Notice, there was only one great burst of thunder, and seven Angels appeared. Is that right? One burst of thunder, Seven Angels appeared. And I saw the Lamb when He had opened the First Seal, and I hear as it was a voice of a thunder, and one of the four beasts said, come and see Notice, one thunder Seven Messages thats been sealed up and cannot be revealed until the last day, at this age. See what I mean? - The Seventh Seal (559)
If you watch carefully in the above passage you will see that the Great Prophet is trying to throw an hint to fix the VISION for the Seventh Seal. And also we see that he is trying to emphasise on the point that it thundered only when the First Seal was opened. Blast of Thunder indicates the opening of the first seal.
When the First Seal was opened, that there was a Thunder? The First Seal in the Book was opened, there was a Thunder. Would not the First Seal on the outside Book open the same way? God doesnt change His program.
Lets turn over to Revelation 6.
And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the Seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, come and see Now, there never was another Thunder; and the last seal was opened there was space in Heaven for a half hour of silence. But the First Seal was opened, there was a blast of Thunder. - Sirs, is this the time (43)
So, a Blast of Thunder indicates the opening of the First Seal.
Before the message Sirs, is this the time? was given, the Great Prophet had a vision. In that vision there was a blast of Thunder just before the Seven Angels come in a constellation in the form of a Pyramid.
In the pages 559 563 of the Seventh Seal, the Great Prophet has given the following three visions.
1. Vision of the Seven Angels
2. Vision at Sabino Canyon
3. The Tent Vision
These three visions put together to form the VISION for the Seventh Seal.
V. THE REVELATION OF THESE VISIONS
1. The Revelation of the vision of the Seven Angels.
the Third came from the West sweeping forward with great terrific speed, and they picked me up. That was coming back east with the mystery of these Seven Seals, just like it said in Junior Jacksons dream that the Lord let me interpret for him these. On the inside of that Pyramid, there was white stone that wasnt written on.
We know that the White Stone represents the Thunder mysteries which were kept hidden in the mind of Christ since the foundation of the World.
But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: - I Corin. 2 : 7
This mystery was kept hidden in the head of Christ. The significance of the Seven Angels coming in the form of a pyramid with the white stone within themselves was that they represented the Head of Christ. And the significance of the Great Prophet being caught up into the constellation of the Seven Angles who came in the form of the Headstone is that the Great Prophet Branham was made the Headstone, the Christ.
Even the Photograph of these Seven Angels was in the form of the Head of Christ as described in Revelation chapter one. The photograph is also blending with this revelation.
This revelation of The Great Prophet Branham being made the CHRIST will not look strange if you remember the vision of, two climaxes, in which the he was standing in the SUN and preaching to a mammoth congregation.
Do you remember the vision about three weeks ago, standing in the Sun, preaching to the congregation? - Sirs, is this the time? (29)
And I thought that I was the happiest person I ever seen. I was standing in the sun, S-U-N, and was and was preaching the Gospel to a large, mammoth congregation. - Blasphemous Names.
We know in the FIRST BIBLE, THE NATURE the Sun represents Christ; and the moon the church. Who could else other than Christ stand on the Sun and preach to the people?
In the book of Zechariah, we see that, and he shall bring forth the headstone there of with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto IT. - Zechariah 4 : 7
What is Grace?
Why did the Headstone require grace?
The Grace is something that God does for a man, and it is Gods unmerited favour to man. When the Lord Jesus was here, the complete God-head was placed in Him. It did not require any grace for God to pour Himself completely into the Body of Jesus. Because the Holy God, the Spirit poured Himself into the Holy Body created without sex in the womb of Mary.
We, the human beings require the Grace of God for our salvation, baptism of the Holy Spirit and so on.
At this harvest time of God placing His Fullness in His church, the Lord by His sovereignty chose the Great Prophet Branham to place His fullness first in his body and thus made him the FIRST FRUIT OF THE HARVEST THE FIRST CHRIST REPRODUCED FROM AMONG HUMAN BEINGS.
For all the first born of the children of Israel are mine. . .I sanctified them for MYSELF - Number 8 : 17
This is only a shadow or type of what the Lord has done to the Great Prophet Branham who is the FIRST CHRIST reproduced from human beings. The Lord by His sovereignty has taken the Body of the Great Prophet Branham for HIMSELF TO KEEP HIS NAME IN HIM FOR ETERNITY and has made him the Headstone. That is why in Zechariah we see that
he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying Grace, grace unto it.
Soon after the vision of the Seven Angels, the Lord gave the Prophet a Scripture Romans ninth chapter the last verse.
Behold I lay in Zion, a cornerstone, a stumbling stone, a precious cornerstone, and whosoever believeth on Him shall not be ashamed. I thought, It is strange I would be reading that. - Sirs, Is this the time (27)
God by His sovereignty and GRACE has made the Great Prophet Branham the Headstone, and it looks marvelous in our eyes. Amen.
The stone the builders rejected Has became the CAPSTONE The Lord has DONE THIS And it is MARVELOUS in our eyes - Psalm 118 : 22, 23
PYRAMID (CHURCH) WITHOUT PYRAMID (CHURCH) WITH
HEADSTONE BEFORE THE HEADSTONE DURING THE
III PULL III PULL
In Gods numerology the number three is the number of completion, God placed His Fullness in the Great Prophet Branham in three stages of THREE PULLS.
Three is perfection. The ministry come to its perfecting when it REPRODUCED CHRIST AGAIN IN NATURAL AMONGST HUMAN BEINGS. - Souls in prison (50)
2. THE REVELATION OF THE VISION AT SABINO CANYON
One morning I got up and went up in Sabino Canyon great rugged high mountain.
And I knelt down between those rocks. I laid down this Bible and laid down this book this little tablet. I said, Lord God, what does this vision mean? ... And I had my hands out, and all at once something hit my hand. . . And it struck my hand, and looked and it was a sword, and it had pearl handless real pretty; and had a guard over it with gold, and the blade looked like, something like a chrome, like silver, only it was real shiny. And it was so feather edged sharp, oh my! And I thought, Isnt that the prettiest thing?
JUST FIT MY HAND . . . And just then a voice shook down through there that rocked the rocks! Said, Its the Sword of the King! and then I come out of it. (THE SWORD OF THE KING)
Now, if theyd said, a Sword of a King but it said, the Sword of the king, and theres only one the king and thats God! And He has one Sword thats His word. - The Seventh Seal (562)
The Great Prophet went to Sabino Canyon to find out from God the meaning and the purpose of the vision of the Seven Angles.
Now, I went up in the Canyon, and I climbed way as high as I could go, and I asked the Lord.. I had my hands out saying Lord, what does this blast mean and what does these seven Angels in a constellation of the pyramid, picking me up from off the ground and turning EASTWARD what does it mean? - The Breach (68)
And I knelt down between those rocks. I said, Lord God, what does this vision mean? I was standing there with my hands up, praying, I said, Lord God, what does this mean? I cant understand it, Lord. What am I to do? - The Seventh Seal (561, 562)
The Lord answered his prayer by dropping THE SWORD OF THE KING into his hands. Another thing to be noted here is that the handle of the Sword fitted his hand perfectly.
What does it signify?
He was made THE CHRIST, THE KING and that is why THE KINGS SWORD fitted his hand perfectly.
Dont you see that this revelation is blending with the revelation of the vision of the Seven Angels. Amen! Hallelujah!
The Sword of the Lord is the Word of the Lord :
And just then a Voice spoke that shook the canyon said, This is the Sword of the Lord. And the Sword of the Lord is the word of the Lord - Standing in the Gap (23)
- It is rising of the Sun (2)
- Third Exodus (40)
Does not the description of the Mighty Angel of Rev. 10 with a halo over His head and with an open book in his hand blend with the posture of the Great Prophet Branham with an halo over his head and with the word (the Sword) of the Lord in his hand?
Then I saw another mighty Angel coming down from heaven, robed in a cloud, with a HALO like a rainbow over his head. . . He had a little book (Scroll) open in his hand - Amplified version
If you dont see the blending of these visions together something is wrong with your Eyes of understanding and it is high time you run to God and ask Him to open your eyes to see these mysteries revealed.
This is the LAST MESSAGE TO THE LAST CHURCH.
The hidden mystery of Revelation 10 : 1-7, THE LAST MESSAGE TO THE LAST CHURCH AGE. Fulfills, in this age, St.Luke 17 : 30; The day when the Son of man shall be revealed.- What is the attraction on the mountain (23)
Hurry up before the Door of mercy closes completely before you.
The Great Prophet had the experience of the visitation of the Seven Angels in the WEST and then he went to reveal the seals in the EAST. In Bro.Jacksons dream, after interpreting the writings on the rock; the Great Prophet went to the top of the mountain and picked up a sharp crow bar like thing from air and lifted up the Capstone and showed the white Rock to the people. There was not any writing on the white rock. So, the Great Prophet asked the people to be watching at the White Rock, then he slipped from there, went to west and disappeared.
The significance of the Great Prophet picking up a sharp tool from air and lifting up the Capstone to show the White Stone, to the people was that the Great Prophet after receiving The Kings Sword at Sabino Canyon he opened the Seven Seals and at the same time he brought the hidden Mysteries (Thunder Mysteries) to the notice of the people. These hidden Mysteries though they were revealed, yet they remained mystery because that was not the time for the Church to know it.
When the Great Prophet opened the Seven Seals it was the Third Pull period for him. Gods purpose of the Third Pull ministry was to reveal the entire mystery to the Great Prophet and thus placing His FULLNESS in him. That was the First Climax of his message. In the First Climax the FULLNESS was placed in the Great Prophet Branham and he was made the CHRIST, the FIRST FRUIT OF THE HARVEST.
Now, during this SECOND CLIMAX at this Midnight hour the Holy Spirit is revealing the Seventh Seal. This is the THIRD PULL for the Real Bride, wherein the Holy Spirit has revealed the entire mystery of God and has poured HIS FULLNESS into Her.
3. THE REVELATION OF THE TENT VISION
Certain important things that are to be noted in the Tent Vision are :
THE TRUE CHURCH GOES INTO THE THIRD PULL WHEN THE GREAT PROPHET IS TAKING REST
. . . I was standing in the air . . . I was trying to make my feet go down to where they were, but I remained up in the air. A real kind hearted, pleasant looking man stepped out before the people and said, Dear Friends, while our Brother Branham is taking a moments rest from this marvelous altar call, we will form the prayer time to the right.
GOING INTO THE WOODEN ROOM IS THE THIRD PULL
The Angel of the Lord, was still standing by me in the air. He said to me, Ill meet you in there! I saw his hand point to the little room. He added, This is the Third Pull!
IT WAS A STRONG MAN WHO LED THE PEOPLE INTO THE WOODEN ROOM, THE THIRD PULL.
A strong man came out and pushed the lady on the stretcher through the gate of the canvas fence and through a door into this little wooden room.
THE SAME PILLAR OF FIRE THAT WAS ON THE GREAT PROPHET BRANHAM HAS NOW COME ON THE REAL BRIDE.
I heard the familiar swishing sound made by the light that accompanies my ministry, and I saw it go from me to the little room.
ONLY IN THE THIRD PULL WE ATTAIN THE PERFECTION AND RECEIVE THE FULLNESS.
A strong man came out and pushed the lady on the stretcher through the gate of the canvas fence and through a door into this little wooden room .. I watched and saw the sick lady coming out a door on the opposite side of the little room. She was off the stretcher, pushing it .. Then came the man out, carrying his crutches.
The interpretation of the Tent Vision as revealed by our Great Teacher, the Holy Spirit.
The Third Pull is the ministry of revealing the mysteries of God hidden in the Seals.
And remember the Third Pull was the opening of them Seven Seals to reveal the hidden Truth thats been sealed in the Word. - The anointed ones at the end time (61)
In the Third Pull of the Great Prophets ministry the written Seals were revealed to the Church. Now at this Third Pull to the Church the Unwritten Seals (The Thunder Mysteries) are revealed to the True Church by the Holy Spirit.
People who went through the wooden room became physically whole (Perfect). The significance of this is that the True Church which was entered into the invisible and mystrical wooden room, the THIRD PULL THE BRIDES REVIVAL has attained the perfection by the REVELATION of the Thunder mysteries.
The Angel of the Lord Said : This will not be a public show. - Tent Vision
Now the revival of the Third Pull is almost coming to an end and most of the people are not aware of this Brides Revival because of its simplicity.
The Bride hasnt had a revival yet. There has been no revival there no manifestation of God to stir the Bride yet, See? Were looking for it. It will take those Seven Unknown Thunders back there to wake her up again. He will send it. He promised it. Now watch! - The Third Seal (253)
Oh, Church rise and shake yourself! Pinch you conscience, wake yourself up in this hour! We must be desperate or perish! Theres coming forth something from the Lord! I know it as THUS SAITH THE LORD. Theres coming forth something, and we better get desperate. Its between life and death. ITLL PASS THROUGH US AND WE WONT SEE IT. - Desperation (23)
REVIVAL IN OUR TIME The revival would be SO SMALL THEYD NEVER KNOW IT. EVER HAPPENING. - The Seed is not heir. . . (25)
The Lord has sent the Revival to the Real Bride by the revelation of the Mystery of the Seven Thunders revealed by the Holy Spirit through the Seventh Angel, the Messenger of the Seventh Seal. The STRONG MAN who led the people into the wooden room in the Tent Vision is the Seventh Angel who had his chest out.
the Seventh Angel, He was brighter, meant more to me than the rest of them. You remember, I said he had HIS CHEST OUT like that, and was flying EASTWARD. - The Seventh Seal (561)
We will study this Tent Vision in more detail as the Lord leads to the Message on the Third Pull.
In the First Climax, the Third Pull Gods mystery came to an end as He poured Himself fully into the Great Prophet Branham, thus making him the CHRIST. God hid himself in simplicity in HIS LAST & ETERNAL BODY, the Body of the Great Prophet Branham.
Now, at this Second Climax, the Third Pull, the Mystery of God of pouring Himself into His last and eternal Body of The Great Prophet Branham thus finishing the Mystery of God is now revealed to the Real Bride thus enabling her to be filled with His Own Fullness.
Hes sovereign, He does what He wants to. But stand there and wait to see what He will do, then feel it break through ON YOU LIKE THAT. - what is the attraction on the Mountain (3)
God who was hidden in simplicity in the WEST is now revealed through the Word in the EAST.
In the very day that the Son of man is revealed, Revelation 10 : 1-7.. The Seventh Angels Message, opening up the Seals .. What is it? Not the Angel is the Son of Man, but the Messenger is revealing the Son of Man. Can you get it separates now? Thats where it seems to be so hard for you. You See? Not the Son of Man Himself, but the Seventh Angel, the seventh messenger is revealing to the public the Son of Man, because its left the struck. - The Anointed ones at the end time (60, 61)
and the Church has moved right on to the west. And now, if we go any further than what we are now, we came back EAST AGAIN. You leave the West Coast you go right back to the EAST AGAIN. So east and west has met. Thats all of it. Were at the end. Theres nothing left. - A Man that can turn on the Light (33)
MANIFESTATION IN THE WEST
AND THE REVELATION IN THE EAST
THE MYSTERY OF GOD IS FINISHED!
TIME IS NO LONGER!
Now, we have seen that the WORD, the HISTORY, the INTERPRETATION, the VISION and the REVELATION are all blending together. So, we are quite sure that this REVELATION IS THUS SAITH THE LORD.
