We are well aware that the Prophet preached the Great Seventh Seal in riddles, but the Bible itself is written so that, without a revelation from God, we cannot understand it. One good example is that the Lord Jesus said that His disciples should go forth and baptize the new Christians in “The Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.” (Mat. 28:19) The natural mind, therefore, supposes that we should baptize in these titles. But, that was not the meaning of the Lord at all! He meant for us to have the revelation that the Name of The Father is Jesus Christ, the Name of The Son is Jesus Christ, and the Name of the Holy Ghost is also Jesus Christ, and that we are to baptize in that Name, The Lord Jesus Christ. In the Book of Acts, this is what was done.

    In preaching on the Seventh Seal, it has been brought to our attention many times that our Prophet, William Branham, said that this Seal was NOT OPENED. And indeed, he did make those statements. Most of you are already aware of these statements, apparently having studied them well. But, it is only fair that you be made aware of the many places where he also said that the Seventh Seal WAS OPENED. We will not use our space here quoting the places where he said it was not opened, but will rather point out the other set of quotes that so many seem to be unaware of. Then you will have to make up your own mind as to which statements you want to believe. This is not being done to cause confusion, but to help some whose eyes have been tightly closed against the revelation under the Seventh Seal. By the help of God, we will give you some food for thought, but we well know that only God can give the revelation.

    We have asked the question, “Has the Seventh Seal been opened?” What do the scriptures and the Prophet say? We will first go to God’s Word and let it testify. In Rev. 5:1-7, John the Revelator saw a Book in the Right Hand of Him that sat on the Throne, and the Book (Bible) was sealed with Seven Seals. A strong Angel asked, “Who is worthy to open the Book, and to loose the Seals thereof?” No man in Heaven, or in Earth, neither under the Earth was found who was worthy to tear off the Seals. Then John wept much because no man was found who could understand the Book.

    Then one of the Elders said to John, “Weep not, behold the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the Book, and to LOOSE THE SEALS.” Then, John saw a Lamb that looked like it had been slain (the Lord Jesus Christ), and this Lamb had seven horns and seven eyes. (Horns represent power, and the eyes represent the Seven Messengers of God who were to be sent forth into all the earth.) And the Lamb came and took the Book out of the Hand of Him that sat on the Throne. Then, the Four Beasts, and the Four and Twenty Elders fell down before the Lamb. They sang a new song saying, “Thou art worthy to take the book and to open the Seals thereof.”

    Please notice here that this Lamb, Jesus Christ, was found worthy to open ALL SEVEN SEALS, not just six of them. If you will follow the scriptures in Rev. 6, you will see where this Christ opened six of the Seals, one after the other. Then, in Rev. 8:1, we read, “And when HE HAD OPNED THE SEVENTH SEAL there was silence in Heaven about the space of half an hour.” The opening of the mysterious Seventh Seal is therefore recorded in the Bible. The scripture says it was opened!

   We often say that the Prophet, William Branham, opened the Seals. Not true. He only preached the mysteries after the Lamb had opened the Book. Please notice that in Rev. 5, the Book (Bible) was closed. It was still sealed with the Seven Seals. But, in Rev. 10, when the Mighty Angel (Christ) came down, He had “In His hand a little Book OPENED,” indicating that the time had come for the Seven (not six) Seals to be revealed. I am writing this to those people who believe that Rev. 10 was fulfilled on Sunset Mountain in Arizona.

    Jesus Christ came down on that mountain, in spirit form, bringing seven angels with Him. This writer believes that these angels were the theophany bodies of the Seven Church Age Messengers, the seventh of which was the Prophet, William Branham’s theophany. These seven (not six) angels uttered their voices (speaking for God) and it sounded as if it thundered. In the little room in Jeffersonville, one of these theophany-bodied angels (men) came each day before the Prophet was to preach a Seal opening that night, and explained the mystery to him. Please note with me that the Seventh Angel appeared in the room to him also. The scripture says SEVEN THUNDERS uttered their voices, NOT JUST SIX. The Seventh Angel spoke his mystery to the Prophet also.

   And when the Seven Thunders had uttered their voices, John was about to write, but he heard a Voice from Heaven saying, “Seal up those things which the Seven Thunders uttered.” (Seven Mysteries were revealed, not just six.) Then the Angel (Christ) that John had seen standing on the earth and the sea, said, “But in the days of the voice of the Seventh Angel, when he shall begin to sound (preach) the Mystery of God should be FINISHED, as He hath declared to His servants the Prophets.” Friends, if the English language means anything, we have to conclude that this scripture tells us that ALL THE MYSTERIES, ALL SEVEN OF THE SEALS, were to be finished, revealed, while the Seventh Angel was on the earth preaching. God declared in the scriptures that it would be done, and so it was!

    Please notice what the Prophet said in The Seven Seal Book, Page 74. QUOTE: THE SEVEN SEALS, PAGE 74 “At the sounding of the seventh church age, the last church age, all the loose ends that through these church ages have been probed at, will be wound up together. And when the Seals are broken and the MYSTERY (singular) is revealed, down comes the Angel, the Messenger, Christ, setting His foot upon the land and upon the sea with a rainbow over His head. Now remember, this seventh angel is on earth at the time of this coming.” (End quote) 

    The above statement is clearly a reference to Rev. 10:2 where the Lord Jesus came down and placed His Right Foot upon the Sea, and His Left Foot upon the Earth. We also know this to have happened in 1963 on Sunset Mountain in Arizona. Notice that he said, “When the Seals are broken, AND THE MYSTERY IS REVEALED, it is the result of a COMING OF CHRIST, while the Seventh Human Angel is on the earth. The MYSTERY (singular) that had been hidden under the Seventh Seal was this Coming of Christ in a DIFFERENT WAY than anyone expected. But, the Prophet definitely spoke of it as “A COMING OF THE LORD” But it was not The Rapture Coming, for that is still future, and the seventh earthly angel has now left the scene. It was the Coming of Christ, Himself, to reveal ALL THE MYSTERIES THAT HAD BEEN HIDDEN UNDER THE SEVEN SEALS while the Seventh Messenger, Brother William Branham, was still on Earth! Let the Prophet explain this “Different Way” that the Lord came.

    QUOTE: PROVING HIS WORD 1965, PAGE 41, “After nineteen hundred years, and we're at the end of the Laodicea church age, He promised in Luke 17:30, that this same Son of man (He promised it) would be revealed in the days like it was in Sodom upon the earth. DID HE DO IT? Does it have to come to pass? It's impossible...(for it to fail) Now, remember, He come in three names: The Son of Man, a Prophet (a baby that grew up as a Prophet); The Son of God, the Spirit (on the day of Pentecost); The Son of David, for the Millennium. BUT IN BETWEEN, THIS CONJUNCTION, now according to His own Words, in the day when THE SON OF MAN shall be revealed, reveal Himself as what? Not Son of God, Son of Man. (He) will reveal Himself in a different way. Now, what does that make? Malachi 4, exactly right…… He would manifest Himself as Son of man again to make manifest Malachi 4. "And in that day I will send to you Elijah the Prophet, and he shall turn the hearts of the Children back to the Faith of the Apostolic Fathers…..” (End quote)

    Notice, that he said in between this conjunction, He would come as SON OF MAN again, and it would be in the body-form of the Prophet of Malachi 4. He said He would reveal Himself in a DIFFERENT WAY. Although this Prophet would repeat the exact Ministry of Christ, the Church Natural would fail to see that his life and ministry was the fulfillment of Luke 17:22-30. While they still wait for the lightening to flash and the thunders to roll, and some “Great thing to happen,” these scriptures have already been fulfilled. Luke 17: 22-30 is now history.

   While the natural church (the church without the Holy Ghost) waits to see the cars all crash on the freeways, and the planes to fall from the sky for lack of drivers and pilots, and all the babies to suddenly disappear from Earth along with millions of adults, there will only be a SECRET, SILENT resurrection of the Dead. These dead will gather with the live Saints, and in God’s time all will be SECRETLY caught up to meet Him in the air.

    While the world and the carnal church wait for “Every eye to see Him,” He will come at Rapture time as “A thief in the night.” Every eye shall surely see Him, but it will be after The Rapture, after Tribulation, and when He comes back to Earth WITH HIS SAINTS. (Rev. 19:14)

    Truly, there has been a Coming of Christ that was a surprise to all of us, that is until God’s Prophet shed light on it.

    Before someone misunderstands, we are not at all teaching that Christ has come, the Rapture is past, and we are in the Millennium. We speak of His coming in a Prophet to fulfill the Son of Man Ministry on Earth FOR THE SECOND TIME.

    We believe, as the Prophet said, the Rapture comes in three stages (I Thess. 4:16). First: the SHOUT which was the Message for our hour that Christ delivered to our Prophet when He (Christ) opened the Seals, Second: the VOICE OF THE ARCH ANGEL which will call the Dead in Christ from the grave, Third: the TRUMPET that sounds to call both the living, and those who have been dead up to meet the Lord in the air.

    This being true, we are waiting for the second stage which will be a RESURRECTION. There will be no Rapture until there has been a Resurrection! There can be no Millennium until there has been a Resurrection, a Rapture, and the Great Tribulation, which ends in the Battle of Armageddon. Then, the Thousand Year Reign starts. The next great event on God’s calendar, the thing we are watching for any time now, is the resurrection of the Dead in Christ. Someday, just walking along, and meet someone face to face whose funeral we have preached, or been too! What a quickening effect that will have on our faith!

    The great burden on Brother Branham’s heart, after his experience on Sunset Mountain and the opening of the Seals, was to try and show the people that Christ had truly come, but in a different way than anyone had expected. He walked this Earth in shoe leather once again, but not in His nail-scarred body. This time He used the body of Brother William Branham.

    This in no way made Brother Branham deity, but it did place him in the highest office ever given to man. His calling was to reenact the very same Ministry that Jesus had. This he did, doing every work and miracle that Jesus had done before him. The Super Sign, or the sign that proved that Christ was surely in him, was the reading of the hearts of the people. This was done around the world without one failure. Never was it proven that his, “Thus Saith The Lord” was wrong.

    In sermon after sermon, Brother Branham cried out for us to believe that Christ had truly come back and that He was fulfilling all the scriptures that the people would be looking for at Rapture time. It seemed as if his heart would break because we could not see it. He knew we would be in danger of missing The Rapture because we would be looking for things to happen that had already happened. He said, “This book (the Bible) has already been opened, just waiting for the Bride to see that the Coming of Christ in a Prophet was the Mystery under the Seventh Seal!

    QUOTE: WHAT SHALL I DO WITH JESUS CALLED CHRIST, PAGE 43, “This Book (the Bible) has already been opened, that’s right just waiting for the Seventh Seal TO BE IDENTIFIED WITH THE COMING OF CHRIST.” (End quote)

    He very clearly said that the Mystery under the Seventh Seal was the COMING OF CHRIST, and that the Bride was waiting for that revelation to be given to them. It had already been given to the Prophet. He said, “This Book has already been opened.”

    But, the Coming of Christ that he referred to here was NOT THE RAPTURE COMING. It was the secret, mysterious Coming of Christ that was to happen AFTER He came on the Day of Pentecost as “The Son of God,” the Holy Ghost, and BEFORE He was to appear in the sky to call the Bride up. (He does not come to Earth at Rapture time. He remains in the clouds.)

    It would be good at this point to list FIVE TIMES that the scriptures and the Prophet declare that Christ will come.


1.      1.      He would come as a Babe in Luke 2:11, grow up and minister as SON OF MAN.

2.      2.      After His death and resurrection, He would come as the Holy Ghost in The Upper Room. (Acts 2:4)

3.      3.      He would come IN A PROPHET, thereby making His second appearance on Earth as SON OF MAN. (Mal. 4:5 and Luke 17:22-30)

4.      4.      He would come for the Rapture, but remain in the clouds and call the Bride up to Himself. (I Thess. 4: 16) He does not come to Earth at the time of Rapture.

5.      5.      He would come back WITH HIS SAINTS to fight the Battle of Armageddon and set up the Millennial Reign. (Rev. 19:14)


It is the third appearance that we have listed that was so mysterious. It is this COMING to Earth that was so well hidden under the Seventh Seal, that not even the Angels understood it.

The Mystery under the Seventh Seal was a Coming of Christ BEFORE Rapture in the body form of His Prophet. (On Sunset Mountain, Christ entered into His Prophet and raised him up to the High Office of a FULL WORD PROPHET.) Although many saw the Cloud itself in 1963, and many have since seen the picture of it, only in the last few years have we understood that this Coming of Christ to enter into a Prophet was the revealing of the Seventh Seal.

We also notice in verse two of Rev. 10, that Christ had a “Little Book opened” in His hand. This book was the Bible indicating that the time had come for ALL MYSTERIES to be revealed. The Seventh Angel Messenger was on Earth (Brother William Branham) and verse 7 says that when he began to preach, the Mystery (singular) should be (would be) finished (revealed). And, so it was. Though he spoke of it in parables, he knew the Lord would at a later time, unscramble his words for the Elect.

In the following quote, the Prophet tells us that Rev. 10 was the opening of the SEVENTH SEAL, which was to be the full word restored to a prophet, who would then have the same Ministry that Jesus had 2000 years ago. It would be THE SON OF MAN REVEALING HIMSELF AGAIN and fulfilling the scripture in Luke 17:22-30. Read carefully what he said!

QUOTE: THE SEED IS NOT HEIR WITH THE SHUCK, PAGE 18-19, “Now, notice, but at the OPENING OF THE SEVEN SEALS, REVELATIONS 10, THE FULL WORD is to be borned again (all of it revealed again) and vindicated by the Spirit of God in the full strength, as It was when It was here on Earth (in the days of Jesus), manifested in the same way, doing the same things that It did when It was here on Earth. Amen! Hebrews 13:8 said, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” In St. Luke 17:30 Jesus said, "In the last days, as it was in the days of Sodom when the Son of man will be revealing Himself again, it'll be the same thing." (End quote)

Here, he told us that Revelation 10 was the opening of this great, mysterious Seventh Seal. He said the FULL WORD was to be born again, or revealed. Then if the the opening of this Seal pertained to the things that happened in Revelation 10, we simply read what happened there in order to see what was under the Seal! Oh, the simplicity of God! Is the Seventh Seal opened? Without a doubt, that is, if we believe our Prophet!

Let us study Revelation 10 and see what this Seal actually was. The first and great thought that engages our minds is that John saw Jesus Christ, in spiritual form, actually come down to Earth. Verse one tells of Christ descending from Heaven, clothed with a Cloud. (We have actual photographs of this huge, beautiful Cloud.) What John saw in vision form 2000 years ago actually happened February 28th, 1963, in Arizona!

From the Prophet’s statement then, where he said the opening of the Seventh Seal was to be seen in Revelation 10, we are to understand that this unexpected COMING OF CHRIST was the Mystery that the Church Natural has missed, as well as some precious Message people. Although Brother Branham spoke of this Seal in riddles, he said enough so that when God’s time came, the Bride would know that it has been opened, and see the mystery it held. Though he spoke of it in parables, he knew the Lord would, at a later time, unscramble his words for the Elect.

There would be “About the space of half an hour” of time pass, according to Rev. 8:1, before the revelation would start. (Perhaps about 20 years, if one day is a thousand years with the Lord.) If this writer’s memory is correct, some of our minister brothers began to understand the Mystery under the Seventh Seal in about 1983, perhaps a few a little ahead of that. From 1963 until 1983, is twenty years and the silence in Heaven was broken as God began to show the opening of the Seal.

Brother Branham knew God would reveal it at a time closer to The Rapture. (See top of page 577 in the Seal Book.) He knew God would show the Bride His Super Sign, and they would catch the revelation.

QUOTE: THE SUPER SIGN, NOV. 1963, SHREVEPORT, PAGE 22, “We’ve had the sign of Religion. We’ve had the sign of Revivals. We’ve had the sign of getting together. We’ve had the sign of speaking in tongues. We’ve had the sign of healing the sick. We’ve had all these signs. But yet we find in the Bible, that the last sign before the Promised Son arrived, it was a Super Sign. Jesus said as it was then, before the promised Son arrives again (to take the Bride out!), that Super Sign would come on the earth again. I declare to you tonight, in the Name of Jesus Christ, IT’S ON EARTH NOW, NOT ONLY THAT, BUT IT’S RIGHT HERE AMONG US TONIGHT. THE HOLY GHOST, GOD’S SUPER SIGN, THE RESURRECTED JESUS CHRIST, IT CANNOT FAIL. It’s an Eternal Sign. It can never be changed. Heavens and Earth will pass away, but that’ll never change. It’s an Eternal, Everlasting Sign, GOD MANIFESTED IN HUMAN FLESH. GOD MADE HIMSELF KNOWN IN HUMAN FLESH.” (End quote)

What was it? It was the Sign of Messiah! And what did The Sign of Messiah mean? It could only mean that Messiah was on Earth again, manifesting Himself through another man. The Ministry would not be the Ministry of a man, but the Ministry of God in the man, for no man can, of himself, show forth the Sign of Messiah. It was the Seventh Seal being manifested.

QUOTE: THE SUPER SIGN, PAGE 20, “But look, right at the end-time, before the burning and the destroying, the Super Sign appears mysteriously, right on the scene again before us, amen, God HIMSELF. Not a man, but God made manifest, a Super Sign, an Everlasting Sign, an Eternal Sign, a Super Sign. God manifested in the flesh……..The Super Sign will return.” (End quote)

The Super Sign was the Seventh Seal manifested. What was this Super Sign, this Everlasting Sign, this Eternal Sign? Why, it was God on the earth again, having come down on Sunset Mountain, in a DIFFERENT WAY than He had ever come before. He entered into a man like as you and I, and showed forth that sign that had not been seen for 2000 years, not since He was here in His own sinless body, the reading of the thoughts and intents of the heart. It was the revealing of The Mystery under The Seventh Seal, God in human flesh, The Hope of Glory. (Col. 1:27)

We are well aware that this Mystery of God in human flesh was not to stop with our Prophet, William Branham. He was only the “First Fruits” being waved before the Bride, showing Her the way. The Lord Jesus was the First Fruits in His day, in His own SINLESS body, but to be waved again in the last days, first, in the body of a sexual-born Prophet, then in the sex-born bodies of His Beloved Bride. This is not to say that the Bride will show forth the “Sign of Messiah.” This was done in one man in our age, and for the purpose of showing the Bride which man had God’s Message, but it will not be repeated. The nine gifts of the Holy Ghost can work, but not the “Sign of Messiah” again.

QUOTE: THE SUPER SIGN, PAGE 23, “Now you all can’t be that One (with the Super Sign), but you can be a part of that with your faith. All of them couldn’t be a Jesus, when they (He) was on Earth, but they could believe Him and accept the Message. There was one Moses and one Elijah, one Noah, on down, always been that, but the rest of them could accept it.” (End quote)

Do you believe we are the generation that saw Jesus Christ return to the Earth to prepare a Bride for Rapture? Do you believe His coming as He did, was the Mystery under the Seventh Seal and that it was revealed in our sight?

QUOTE: THIS DAY THIS SCRIPTURE, JEFF. IN. 65-0219  33-3 068, “I've read the Scripture, with a dozen or more evidences that we're living in the last day, the generation that would see Jesus Christ return to the earth. And I say to you tonight again, this day this Scripture is fulfilled in your sight. (Not the Rapture, but the Sunset Mountain Coming!)

QUOTE: INVISIBLE UNION OF THE BRIDE, SHREVE. LA, 65-1125 43-1 124, “God had to open up those Seven Seals….He opened those Seven Mysteries in there, and it shows forth, brings forth those things that’s been hid since the foundation of the world…might be revealed in the last days to Son’s of God.”

QUOTE: INVISIBLE UNION OF THE BRIDE SHREVE. LA 65-1125 42-3 “….The Seven Seals of God….was opened on the mountain.”

QUOTE: THE MASTERPIECE, JEFF. IN. 64-0705 167 167, “Now, what did He say in Revelation 10, that would take place? Why was the trip to Tucson? To open to the Church…. In the days of the Messenger of the Seventh Angel (Seventh Angel’s Message) the whole Word of God would be made manifest. The Seal that what all the stalk has left off, and why, and all about it, would be made manifest in this time. Is that what the Word said? Then we see it. Then where are we at? See? Where are we at? There’s only one thing. The harvest is here. She’s dead ripe. She’s ready now for the coming.”(End quote) (The Rapture Coming)

QUOTE: THIS DAY THIS SCRIPTURE, JEFF. IN. 65-0219 23-3 047, “….And said the Seven Seals of the hidden mysteries of the entire Bible would be opened and fulfill Revelations 10, that in the Seventh Angel’s Message these things should come to pass! This day this Scripture is fulfilled before our eyes!” (End quote) (Rev. 10 and the Seventh Seal is the same thing!)

QUOTE: SEED NOT HEIR WITH THE SHUCK, JEFF. IN. 65-0218, “Neither will a Christian eat on that dead a-carrion from old denominational doctrines and things. They want the Word of God fresh, the promise of the hour.

128 088 God promised rabbits in the days of Luther. He promised other things in the days of others. But now He’s promised us a full square meal, the full seven course menu, for all the Seven Seals are opened and everything is ready for the Word of God, for those who can receive….”

QUOTE: CHRIST REVEALED IN HIS OWN WORD, JEFF. IN. 65-0822M 162 117, “There has to be eyes first to see, and then when that come, He opened the Seven Seals and revealed the Evening Light, taking all the mysteries that’s been hid down through these church ages and now revealed them as He promised to do in Revelations 10:1-7.  Here we are today setting in the midst of the Word, and the Word being revealed to us by Jesus Christ.” (End quote)














    On July 28th, 1963, the Prophet, William Branham preached a message entitled, “Christ Is The Mystery of God Revealed.” It was preached in Jeffersonville, Indiana some five months after Brother Branham’s experience with the giant cloud on Sunset Mountain in February of that same year. It is one of his longest messages, and it has to do with the Great Mystery that had been hidden under the Seventh Seal. If studied with an open mind and with prayer, the obedient ones will be given the revelations contained in this powerful sermon. If the Seventh Seal was opened, what mystery did it reveal?

    The Prophet’s subject in this sermon is one of the most remarkable events in all of history. It is next in importance to the First Coming of Christ Jesus, and to the future Rapture Coming. It has to do with a coming of Jesus Christ just before the Rapture, in Spirit-Word form. Christ, in Spirit-Word came down on Sunset Mountain and entered into His Prophet, William Branham, thus making him a “Word Prophet.” This Spirit-Word was then given out in the way of sermons to the Bride of Christ. Now, in this hour, that same Spirit-Word is entering into the Bride so that Christ is being formed in Her. Truly, we know the Spirit of Christ is on the earth when we see Him in the flesh bodies of our Brothers and Sisters. “Every Spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh (Our flesh as well as in the flesh of the Virgin’s Child) is of God. And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh, is not of God….” (I John 4:2-3)

    As we attempt to enter into the meaning of this scripture in I John 4:2-3, let us remember that we are looking at the meaning of The Great Seventh Seal, and the mystery it has been hiding. For the mystery has to do with Christ in the flesh of a Prophet first, then in the flesh of every other Bride Member. The riches of the Glory of this Mystery that is now being revealed to us Gentiles, is Christ in us, the Hope of Glory. (Col. 1:27) What has Christ done in order to make sure the Rapture of His Elect Bride? What is the importance of this Mystery Coming of Christ that was hidden under the Seventh Seal?

    From the start, we must be warned about submitting these questions to human reasoning and of bringing the world’s wisdom into the matter. The preaching of this Seal to them that perish is “Foolishness” but to the “Born-Again” it is the power of God for the Rapture. Therefore, this study is worthy of our most diligent attention, and our most solemn prayers. Not only should we know when and where this secret coming of Christ took place, but we need the right conceptions about why Christ came as He did, in such a secret way, and what has been accomplished by it. The Mystery under the Seventh Seal reveals it all.

    In the message, “Christ Is The Mystery of God Revealed,” Brother Branham used Col. 1:15-29 as his text. When reading the scriptures, and coming to the 26th verse, he said, “Now I want to read that verse again,” then he repeated it. Col. 1:1-26, “Even the Mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but NOW IS MADE MANIFEST TO HIS SAINTS.” Then he said, “I want to title this “Christ Is The Mystery Of God Revealed.” (Page 16)

    QUOTE: CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY OF GOD REVEALED, PAGE 16, “Now God’s secret Mystery He had before the world began. Now back in the back part of God’s Mind, there was something that He was trying, and was gong to achieve, and He had a motive in doing it – IN ORDER TO LET HIMSELF BE EXPRESSED.” (End quote) God’s motive, as the Prophet taught it, was to live in human flesh and express himself.

    QUOTE: CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY OF GOD REVEALED, PAGE 17, “Now God had a purpose and a hidden mystery. And that’s what I want to speak on to the Church this morning; THE HIDDEN MYSTERY OF GOD, that He had in His mind before the world ever began and how it’s unfolded itself right down to this present hour that we’re living. See? And then you will understand clearly then (see) on, I believe, WHAT IS BEING DONE.” GOD’S GREAT MYSTERY OF HOW…..IT’S A SECRET. HE KEPT IT A SECRET NOBODY KNOWED NOTHING ABOUT IT. EVEN THE ANGELS DIDN’T UNDERSTAND IT, SEE? HE DIDN’T REVEAL IT. THAT’S THE REASON UNDER OUR SEVENTH MYSTERY (The Seventh Seal) WHEN THE SEVENTH SEAL WAS OPENED, THERE WAS SILENCE.” (End quote)

    Please note with me that in this whole dialog, the Prophet is speaking about the HIDDEN MYSTERY that was under the Seventh Seal! And please note carefully that he said, “WHEN THE SEVENTH SEAL WAS OPENED!” He said God kept it a secret, but then he went on to say, “WHEN IT WAS OPENED.” Now let’s continue to quote him on page 17. He taught the mystery under the Seventh Seal in riddles.

    QUOTE: CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY, PAGE 17, “Jesus, when He was on Earth, they wanted to know WHEN HE WOULD COME. He said, ‘It’s not….even the Son Himself don’t know when it’s going to happen. See, God has this all to Himself. It’s a secret. AND THAT’S THE REASON THERE WAS SILENCE IN HEAVEN FOR THE SPACE OF HALF AN HOUR. (This key sentence refers to Rev. 8:1. It will be very important to us in just a moment as we continue the quote.)

    And SEVEN THUNDERS uttered their voices, and John was even forbidden to write it (See) THE COMING OF THE LORD.” (End quote)

    What coming of the Lord was the Prophet referring to here? Very clearly, he was speaking of the Coming in Rev. 10:1-3, where the Mighty Angel (Jesus) came down clothed with a cloud, and Seven Thunders uttered their Voices. And do we not know that this coming in Rev. 10 was the Sunset Mountain Coming? Surely, we understand that much about the Message. (I refer to those who have had a chance to study it.) Can we see that the Coming of the Lord that Brother Branham speaks of here was NOT THE RAPTURE COMING, But the Coming of Christ in the Cloud on Sunset Mountain? He plainly said it was the coming at which time the Seven Thunders uttered their voices. Seven Angels came down with Christ on Sunset Mountain, and when they spoke for God, it sounded as if it had thundered! Then the Prophet went on to make this statement:

    QUOTE: CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY, PAGE 17, “That’s one thing he hasn’t revealed yet, of HOW He will come, and WHEN He will come. It’s a good thing that He doesn’t. No.” (Then he speaks in riddles again, as he goes on to say that God revealed the Great Mystery in every type in the Bible.) “He has showed, OR REVEALED IT, in every type that’s in the Bible. Therefore the entire Bible is the revelation of God’s Mystery in Christ.” (End quote)

    What then, was the Mystery that was shown in every type in the Bible? It was Christ come down in flesh, in the body form of His Prophets, and ministering to His People. In our age, it was Jesus Christ back on Earth in the Prophet of Malachi 4:5, to prepare the hearts of the Bride for Rapture. In the following quote, the prophet will tell us again that God’s Great Mystery in CHRIST HAS BEEN REVEALED, that His great goal has been accomplished, and that all the acts of the Believers in the Bible expressed what God’s goal was. He said, “God has revealed it to me.” (Saying God revealed the Mystery under the Seventh Seal to him.)

    QUOTE: CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY, PAGE 17, “Therefore, the entire Bible is the revelation of God’s Mystery in Christ. See? The entire Bible is the expression of one goal that God had, one purpose He wanted to achieve in the entire Bible, and all the acts of the Believers in the Bible has been in type and expressing what God’s great goal is. AND NOW IN THIS LAST DAY, HE HAS REVEALED IT AND SHOWS US. And God’s help we’ll see it right here this morning…what the Lord has had in His mind all along, AND HAS EXPRESSED IT. Therefore, you can see the great meaning of what it’s been to know this, and then try to bring it to the people. See?.......I haven’t went into details and tried to explain, AS GOD HAS REVEALED IT TO ME.” (End quote)

     But now, in this sermon, “Christ Is The Mystery”, he is going into much detail and explaining the Mystery under the Seventh Seal. May God help us as we study it!

    QUOTE: CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY, PAGE 18, “Now listen close, because now I ain’t going to even pay attention to what the clock says. I want you to get this. See? you can see here basically, in the beginning, the very thought that God had in His mind. He hid it from all of those scholars. And that just a number, a selected predestinated number….a predestinated people was only the one that heard it.” (End quote)

    Now, we will let Brother Branham tell us that the Mystery Coming of Christ, which was the Seventh Seal, has already happened and has been explained.

    QUOTE: CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY, PAGES 32-33, “All those things type Him (just in type), but yet the Mystery was hid. Them man didn’t know what they were doing. They only knew that they were led by the Spirit to do something. Now, holding it back in the last days for the great revelation, BUT EXPRESSING IT. Expressing Himself in Moses, and David, and Joseph, and Elijah and on down through. We could take each one of those prophet’s and bring their lives out and show it expressed Jesus Christ perfectly, exactly, yet never giving His secret in full, WAITING FOR TO MAKE IT KNOWN IN THE LAST DAYS, AS HE PROMISED, WAITING FOR IT TO BE FULLY COMPREHENDED. SEE? Before He could express it. If He told the whole thing….because the Bible’s written in mysteries; Jesus thanked the Father for it, see? That it was wrote in mysteries. (The Mystery was God expressing Himself in men such as Moses, David, Joseph, and Elijah.)

    CONT. QUOTE: “Now the COMING OF THE LORD is in mystery. We don’t know WHEN He’s coming, HOW He’s coming, but we know He’s coming. See? And so was all the Mysteries of God waiting for this last day. AFTER IT’S ALREADY BEEN COMPLETED, THEN HE REVEALS, HE SHOWS WHAT HE’S DONE. OH MY, NEVER GAVE HIS MYSTERY IN FULL.” (End quote)

    Again, we ask the question, “What coming are you speaking of, Prophet of God?” It’s very, very important that we understand he was not talking about the Rapture Coming! Notice, in the statement just above that he said, “After THE COMING has already been completed, then He reveals, He shows what He HAS DONE!” The Rapture is yet future, but Sunset Mountain was history.

    CONT. QUOTE: “The reason that was such a tremendous thing, that He spoke of it here, and showed those Seven Thunders, and LOOK and LIFE – my LIFE’S MAGAZINE  there, packed (carried) that circle of cloud and light there, that they could not understand, and don’t know it yet, but here telling (me), ‘Go there and wait for these mysteries to be revealed’, months before it happened; AND THEN IT HAPPENED EXACTLY THE WAY HE SAID IT WOULD DO.” (End quote) (The Sunset Mountain Coming of the Lord!)

    He said, “And then it happened.” That is to say, the Lord came just as He said He would do, fulfilling the scripture in Rev. 10: 1-3, Luke 17:22-30, and others.

     Now, let us go to a statement in the Message, FEAST OF THE TRUMPETS, PAGE 39, and see what Brother Branham said about Rev. 10, and the Seventh Seal. He said that what happened in Rev. 10 WAS THE SEVENTH SEAL MYSTERY being revealed!

    QUOTE: FEAST OF THE TRUMPETS, PAGE 39, “Look! I want to say one more thing. Closely now, don’t miss this. How striking. From the Seventh Angel’s (Messenger of the Seventh Seal) message, AND REV. 10 WAS THE Seventh Seal….” (End quote) Can we see it? He said Rev. 10 was the Seventh Seal, and we know that Rev.10 was the COMING OF THE LORD ON SUNSET MOUNTAIN. Then is it not clear that the Coming of the Lord he is speaking of is NOT THE RAPTURE COMING? It was the Luke 17:22-30 Coming, The Son of Man in A son of man. It was the Seventh Seal being pulled back, for all who have eyes to see. It was the Coming of the Lord in a sex-born man, to repeat the ministry that Jesus had 2000 years ago. What was the Seventh Seal? It was “The Sign of Messiah” being re-enacted on Earth through the body of the Prophet of Mal. 4:5, it was God, Himself, come down to FINISH ALL THE MYSTERIES. The Seventh Seal was Christ in a man doing all the works that Jesus did 2000 years ago. Let the Prophet say it in his own words.

    QUOTE: SHALOM, SIERRA VISTA, AZ. 1964, PAGE 28, “We heard the Word say that, ‘IN THE DAYS OF THE SEVENTH ANGEL.’ In the Church Age, He just said, ‘The Seventh Angels’ Message would be the last message.’ And then, oh, we find out over here in Rev. 10, ‘In the days of the Message of the Seventh Angel, THE MYSTERIES OF GOD SHOULD BE FINISHED.’ THE Seventh Seal WOULD BE PULLED BACK. IT SHOULD BE THERE! Then all at once, WHEN IT’S HAPPENING, a vision broke, said, ‘Go to Tucson, a great noise will take place at this time, so you’ll be thoroughly understanding, and know that it’s sent. It’ll just shake the earth nearly.’ All of you know about it. It’s on tape months before it happened. AND THEN IT HAPPENED. Then it appeared in the skies. Shalom! What is it? It’s a changing beats, the Sympathy.” (End quote)

    He said, “The Seventh Seal would be pulled back.” Did you notice it? But you say, “That’s for a future time.” But wait a minute, he went on to say, “It should be there,” and that was in 1964. Friends, the revelation has been there for a long time, we have just been slow in understanding it. However, it has come to us in God’s time.

    QUOTE: CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY, PAGE 34, “Then (He, Jesus would), come back in the last days and pick up ALL THE MYSTERIES and clearly explain it-reveal it. Why? (Because) It’s all of the last days when this Great Mystery that God had in His Heart IS BEING REVEALED. Do you get it? If you fail, come back to this tape again. I don’t know how much longer I’ll be with you. Remember, this is the truth of THUS SAITH THE LORD. IT’S THE TRUTH. IT’S THE SCRIPTURE.”

“Like the Seven Mysteries of the Seven last Seals, the mysteries of them... The Seals HAD DONE BEEN BROKEN; every age had come down, and there they left a lot of scattering. (The people didn’t understand it all.) And God, not willing that it should be scattered, HE COMES BACK AND PICKS UP THOSE THINGS, those doctrines they started, and brought it on out and revealed the WHOLE THING, same thing He's doing now in REVEALING THE MYSTERY OF CHRIST, how He was God's threefold purpose for the Church. Oh, my. Letting them out, REVEAL...!” (End quote)

    In the above quote, he said, “God is NOW REVEALING the Mystery of Christ.” The Great Mystery of Christ had been hidden beneath the Seventh Seal. What God would do in the end-time had not been revealed through the centuries. Paul saw it in the First Church Age, but then the revelation of it was lost in the following Church Ages. But now, in the Bride Age, Christ, Himself, came down again in Spirit-Word form and, as the Prophet said, “Not willing that the truths should be scattered, He comes back and picks up those things and revealed the whole thing.”

    We are studying the sermon, “Christ the Mystery of God Revealed” because it is in this message that the Prophet teaches on the Great Seventh Seal. For all who do not see this Great Seal opened, I strongly suggest that you study this sermon. And, if you will first open your mind to the fact that it is not a teaching about the RAPTURE, but about a Coming of Christ, BEFORE Rapture, then I believe the Lord will give the revelation of it. The Mystery of the Seventh Seal was the return of Jesus Christ, in the body form of His Prophet, William Branham, to perform the same Ministry He had 2000 years ago, which would attract the attention of the Elect Bride to the Message that would follow.

    The message would, in turn, put the very Faith of God into the hearts of the Bride, and prepare them to receive a body change. The Mystery under the Seventh Seal was that the same Pillar of Fire that Paul met on the road to Damascus, returned in our day and anointed the prophet, William Branham, so that it was actually Christ expressing Himself through the flesh of a sex-born man.

    QUOTE: CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY, PAGE 38, “No wonder he (Paul) could separate the Law from Grace over in the Book of Hebrews. He met the same Pillar of Fire. He said, ‘I’m Jesus, whom you persecute.’ AND HERE HE IS TODAY IN THE SAME MANNER! FOR THE SAME PILLAR OF FIRE EXPRESSING HIMSELF, AND VINDICATING HIMSELF THE SAME, REVEALING THE MYSTERY OF GOD THAT’S BEEN HID SINCE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD. SEE IT?” (End quote)

    The Mystery of God that has been hidden since the foundation of the world was the one under the Seventh Seal. It was the Coming of Christ in a DIFFERENT WAY than what anyone expected. Even our Prophet did not expect any such thing, but God proved to him that it was the truth.

    QUOTE: PROVING HIS WORD, AUG. 1964, JEFF. PAGE 41, “After 1900 years, and we are at the end of the Laodicean Church Age, He promised in Luke 17: 30 that this SAME SON OF MAN (He promised it) would be revealed in the days like it was in Sodom, upon the earth. DID HE DO IT? DOES IT HAVE TO COME TO PASS? It’s impossible …..(for it to fail) Now remember, He came in three names, The Son of Man (Born as a baby and grew up as a prophet), The Son of God, The Spirit (Holy Ghost on the day of Pentecost), The Son of David, for the Millennium. BUT, IN BETWEEN THIS CONJUNCTION (in between these times), NOW ACCORDING TO HIS OWN WORD, IN THE DAY WHEN THE SON OF MAN SHALL BE REVEALED, REVEAL HIMSELF AS WHAT, NOT SON OF GOD, SON OF MAN. (HE) WILL REVEAL HIMSELF IN A DIFFERENT WAY. NOW WHAT DOES THAT MAKE, (What scripture will that fulfill?) Malachi 4, EXACTLY RIGHT. SEE? THE SON OF MAN WILL REVEAL HIMSELF….TO MAKE MANIFEST MALACHI 4. “AND IN THAT DAY, I WILL SEND UNTO YOU ELIJAH THE PROPHET, AND HE SHALL TURN THE HEARTS OF THE CHILDREN BACK TO THE FAITH OF THE APOSTOLIC FATHERS.” (End quote)

    This coming, in a DIFFERENT WAY in the End-Time, was the Mysterious Seventh Seal pulled back. But, just as in the days of Jesus 2000 years ago, God holds the key to this revelation of Christ Himself. The great scholars can never find it, Jesus said they could not. (Mat. 11: 25-27) The Church Nominal today accepts the intellectual side, but knows nothing of the Spirit of God; therefore their leaders are the blind leading the blind.

    QUOTE: CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY, PAGE 54, “Get the revelation, Brother. This generation’s spurning this revelation. See? False Prophets are doing that. By their fruits you shall know them…….The Holy Ghost alone shows you who He is….and here God is manifested in flesh. HERE IS THE FULLNESS.  HE IS COMPLETELY REVEALED AND MADE KNOWN TO THE WORLD. OH MY!” (End quote) (Saying the Seventh Seal is revealed!)

     QUOTE: CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY, PAGE 57, “Notice, the anointed man, THE CHRIST HIMSELF HERE, (OH GOD) IS MADE KNOWN……God fully manifested in Jesus Christ. GOD’S GREAT SECRET OF HIS REVELATION, THIS GREAT LIGHT OF REVELATION HAS ALWAYS BLINDED THE WISDOM OF THIS WORLD. (He is speaking of the Seventh Seal, which is Christ come in the flesh of human beings.) In the days of Christ (when He was here on Earth), it had blinded them. They said, ‘Why, you even make yourself God. You make yourself equal with God. He was not only equal to God, He was God, himself! See? THEY DON’T GET IT.” (End quote)

    Over and over in the Message, “Christ Is The Mystery Of God Revealed,” Brother Branham tells us that GOD’S GREAT MYSTERY has been revealed to the Bride. But, He also said, “I am sure you don’t get it.” And, we did not get the revelation of it at the time he was preaching it. But, he went on to say that God would let the Bride know the secrets, not the flirters, just the Bride.

    QUOTE: CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY, PAGE 58, “Look! What was once God’s great secret, great Mysterious Secret in His mind, is NOW PUT IN THE HEARTS OF THE BELIEVER, THAT IS THE BODY OF CHRIST. What was once God’s great secret in His mind before the foundation of the world, is NOW MADE MANIFEST. Think of it! Oh, I’m sure we don’t get it, I can’t see it the way I ought to, and I’m sure you don’t. See? But God’s Great Mystery, what the Eternal God had as a Mystery, HAS NOW BEEN UNFOLDED IN JESUS CHRIST, THEN WAS GIVEN OUT DOWN TO HIS CHURCH. WHAT WAS ONCE IN GOD’S MIND, IS NOW IN THE BODY OF CHRIST (Speaking of the Mystery under the Seventh Seal). Jesus making love to the Church, His Bride, whispering secrets to her…..that’s what God-Christ is doing to the church. See? He’s letting Her know the secrets-just the secrets. Not these flirters; I mean His Wife. See? All right….”

    CONT. QUOTE: …..PEOPLE I KNOW IT (I know the secret). I hope you don’t think this sounds personal to a bunch of people, or this, that, but the Secret that God is sharing with the whole Church, if they would just receive it. See? It doesn’t mean just me or just you; it means the Church that He’s trying to get into it. And you say, well why don’t they receive it? They can’t receive it (Nominal Church can’t receive it, it’s for Bride only)…..and how could they? Because Isaiah said they can’t see it.” (End quote)

    QUOTE: CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY, PAGE 61, “Now making His Mystery known to His Bride Tree here in the last day, bringing forth the fruits that was in the Tree at the beginning.” (End quote) (The Mystery under the Seventh Seal)

    Brother Branham, would you tell us plainly what the Great Mystery is that you are talking about? It would help us so much to hear you say it in your own simple way!


    How simply he explained it! The Great Secret under the Seventh Seal was that Jesus Christ would come into the Prophet of the Last Age and repeat the Ministry He had 2000 years ago. The Prophet and Christ would become One in thought and deed. Not that the Prophet became Deity, but that Deity worked in and through him. But, the Great Mystery did not stop with the Prophet and Christ becoming One! So would the Bride and Christ become One by means of the WORD MESSAGE that came through the Prophet.

     QUOTE: CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY, PAGE 69, “Remember! Think of it, that people borned of His Spirit in a day like this, in this great denominational age that we live in, AND THE LIVING GOD TAKES HIS LIVING WORD AND VINDICATES IT PERSONALLY. This Life that in the Word, the Germ that’s in the SEED (And the WORD is THE SEED that the Sower went forth to sow), and the Life is Christ in the Word personally in you, vindicating something that you cannot do, proving Himself that it’s not you, BUT IT’S HIM. AND YOU BECOME ONE, A LOVE SLAVE TO HIM, TO BE A BRIDE.” (End quote)

    I pray that we are beginning to see that the Great Mystery spoken of by the Prophet in this message, “Christ Is The Mystery Of God Revealed,” is that the Bride and Christ will become ONE. The plan was that Jesus Christ would come down in these last days, enter into His Prophet and give forth a Word Message that would produce Christ in His Bride. The Bride is pregnant in this Holy, hushed hour, and as she nourishes the WORD in the womb of Her mind, and it passes on down into the Soul, the Church is about to see Jesus Christ in flesh again. The Bride will walk like Him, speak like Him, and love like Him. A powerful anointing is getting ready to fall upon this little unknown group. They will do a short, quick work by the power of the Holy Ghost, and will then be taken out of Satan’s Eden. This is the Mystery that has been hidden under the Seventh Seal. It is Christ walking the earth again in the flesh body of His Prophet, then in the flesh bodies of the Bride, doing the will of the Father, finishing the last day works.

    The revelation of the Seventh Sealed Mystery had to be revealed in this last day, through a prophet who would not allow his Message to become denominated. The messages of Luther, Wesley, and Pentecost had all denominated and gone the way of the fallen angels, but God would not allow His Plan, and His Truth, to be smothered out. He would come down Himself and see to it, and that Coming is now history. It was the Seventh Seal revealed!

    QUOTE: CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY, PAGE 79, “Wesley was a man of God, but what followed him? Fallen Angels got into it. What was the Angels (at) first? Creative beings of God, but fell for Lucifer’s wisdom. And you see what they become-fallen Angels…..Fallen Angels come in and took it over and made denominations out of it. THAT’S THE REASON THE REVELATION OF THE SEVENTH SEAL MYSTERY HAD TO BE UNFOLDED, NOW DO YOU SEE IT? …….If Luther would have went on, it’d been back here (back then), if Wesley would have went on, if Pentecost would have went (on) what would they’d done? Now there’s only one thing can happen. There has to be a Message at the End-Time, when there is nothing else can follow it.” (End quote)

    The Prophet said the Revelation of the Seventh Seal HAD TO BE UNFOLDED. Why? Because God was going to come down to Earth and live in the flesh bodies of His Bride, and He wanted that great revelation passed on to Her through the mouth of His Word Prophet. The promise is now being fulfilled, Christ the Word is in His Bride. The same works that He did are now beginning to come forth!

    QUOTE: CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY, PAGE 83, “Now we see the promise being fulfilled. Christ, the true Headship going in-coming in His Bride, doing the same works that He did at the beginning, and making ready and fulfilling His Word as He did at first in John 14:12, “He that believeth on Me the works that I do shall he do also.” Then, the Head and the Body are becoming ONE in works, and in SIGN and in LIFE, vindicated by God Himself through His promised Word for the Last Days. He promised this in the last days. Now, if you’re spiritual, you’ll catch it.” (End quote) (The Seventh Seal opened)

    Brother Branham taught that the Seventh Seal being opened was the devils answer from the Bride, as he is allowed to try and stop Her Ministry. He said the Risen Lord is in Her, and she can’t be stopped. She has the same Power as Her Lord, and He is manifesting Himself through Her.

    QUOTE: CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY, PAGE 85, “Now we are the Son’s of God. Not we will be, WE ARE. Now we’re redeemed. We have Satan’s answer. God’s avindicated Himself. God’s proved Himself to His Promise in this day. Hallelujah! THE HEADSHIP IS HERE. AMEN! CHRIST THE RISEN LORD. IT’S (HE’S) HERE IN THE SAME POWER OF HIS RESURRECTION THAT HE EVER WAS, MANIFESTING HIMSELF. THERE’S THE DEVIL’S ANSWER.” (End quote)

    The Seventh Seal opened is Christ back in His people in the fullness of His Word, and that’s Satan’s answer! Amen!









            In our message today, we have a group of people who are waiting for the Seven Thunders to be revealed, and on page 75 of the Seven Seal Book, Brother Branham did say, “The Book is absolutely a sealed Book until the Seven Seals are broken. It is sealed up with Seven Seals. Now, that’s different from the Seven Thunders!” (End quote) Later, when more revelation had come, Brother Branham changed this and declared that the Thunders were revealed in the Seven Seals. See the quote below.

            QUOTE: QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS, JEFF. 64-0830E 1161=Q-395 049 395, “Have the Seven Thunders which equals Seven Mysteries already been revealed? Were they revealed in the Seven Seals, but are yet….but are yet not known to us as the Thunders? ANSWER- No, they were revealed in the Seven Seals, THAT’S WHAT THE THUNDERS WAS ABOUT. They was to reveal…..The Seven Thunders that had uttered their voice, and no one could make out what it was…John knew what it was, but he was forbidden to write it. He said, ‘But the Seventh Angel, in the days of his sounding, the Seven Mysteries OF THE SEVEN THUNDERS would be revealed.’ And the Seventh Angel is a Messenger of the Seventh Church age. See?” (End quote)

            You may wonder what the Prophet meant in the beginning of his answer (above) when he said, “No!”  When we put his whole answer together with this first “No,” we understand that he was saying “No, we don’t (you don’t) understand it yet, but it has been revealed to me, and I am telling you that the Mysteries under the Seven Seals is what the Thunders were all about. Please read the following quote carefully, again he says the Seven Seals opened up the Mystery of what the Seven Thunders uttered!

            QUOTE: UNVEILING OF GOD, JEFF. IN. 64-0614M 274 137, “Now, someone has been, many has been saying to me, and theologians said, ‘Brother Branham, if the Lord God….’ Said, ‘If…if with your experience that the Lord has given you for His People,’ humbly saying this, said, ‘you’d be eligible to write a..a Bible yourself, your Word that God has manifested.’ I said, “That might be true.” See, He was trying to catch me. See? And I said, ‘But, you see, I couldn’t do that.’ He said, ‘Why couldn’t? You have all the qualifications.’ I said, ‘But, you look, one word cannot be added or taken away.’ See?  And he said, ‘Well then, them Seven Thunders (You See?),’ said, ‘wouldn’t them Seven Thunders blasting out, won’t that be a revelation be give to some man?’ I said, ‘No, sir, it would be adding something to It or taking something from It.’ It’s all revealed in there, and the Seven Seals opened up the revelation of what that was. See? He’s still in the Word. You see, you can’t get out of that Word. It won’t leave the Word. And God’s Spirit will never leave that Word.” (End quote)

            In the following quotes, the Prophet tells us that The Seven Thunders and The Seven Seals are the same thing. We invite our good brothers who are still waiting for the Thunders to be revealed to study these statements carefully, and with an open mind. We press the point that we ALREADY HAVE all the mysteries revealed in the Prophet’s sermons that we need to prepare us for the Rapture. May God grant that we don’t continue to overlook this glorious fact. Rapturing Faith lays in the messages NOW, though we may not understand it all as yet.

            QUOTE: GOD IN SIMPLICITY, JEFF. IN. 63-0317M 18-6 {103} 059, “We’re…we’re in teaching, and you can realize what a great strain it is on me (See?), because if I teach anything wrong, I am going to have to answer for it. See? And so I must not take what anyone says; I must…it must be inspired. And I believe that THE SEVEN ANGELS WHO’S HOLDS THESE SEVEN THUNDERS, WILL GRANT IT.”

            QUOTE: GOD IN SIMPLICITY, JEFF. IN. 63-0317M, “I got the notes wrote here on it (See?), to show what them things are, and we’ll get it on the breaking of these Seals this week anyhow. See, see? There it is, just where it’s already passed and you didn’t know it. See?  See if it is. IF THE ANGEL OF THE LORD WILL BREAK THEM SEALS FORTH TO US….REMEMBER, IT’S SEALED WITH THEM SEVEN MYSTERIOUS THUNDERS. SEE?”

            59-5 {385} 187, “Now, why…why can’t people believe the simple simplicity of a humble bunch of people (See?) and the ….the voice of the signs of God? Why can’t they believe it? Just like it always been. The true Word of God being made manifest….” (End quote)

            QUOTE: THE FIRST SEAL, JEFF. IN. 63-0318 139-1 {146}, “When the thunder….REMEMBER, A LOUD CLAPPING NOISE OF A THUNDER IS THE VOICE OF GOD. That’s what the Bible said (See?), a clap of thunder. They thought it was a thunder, but it was God. He understood it, for it was revealed to Him. See? It was a thunder.”

            141-5 {165}, “…..come and see what the Mystery is under the First Seal. The Thunder, the Voice of the Creator, has uttered it. Now, He ought to know what’s there. Amen. Oh my. (Reference: John 12:28-30)

            QUOTE: THE SEVEN SEAL BOOK, PAGE 142-1 {166} 077, “But think, now he wrote this, but when he started to write those other Seven Thunders, he said, ‘Don’t write it.’ He’d been commissioned to write everything he seen. But when THESE SEVEN THUNDERS OVER IN REVELATIONS 10 uttered, he said, ‘Don’t write them at all.’ They’re mysteries. We don’t know what they are yet; but my opinion they’ll be revealed right away. And when it do, it’ll give faith for that rapturing grace for that Church to move out….”

            143-1 {173} 080, “All right, and a thunder went off. John knew it was the Voice of God. And then the…the lion like creature said, ‘Come, see what it was,’ and John went forth now with his pen to write what he was going to see. Now, he never seen exactly what it was. He never understood it, but what he saw was what God was sending to the Church for a time. Now, He’s got….He will; He always does; He makes it plain when it’s time to make it plain. But He didn’t make it plain then. Why? Because He was going to keep it a secret until the last days, and the sounding of the last angel’s message was to gather up these mysteries (See?)

            ….Now, see that’s in symbol. That’s the way the Church has received it, but with the promise that at the last day He’d reveal it, show what it is. God help us to understand….Church Ages…But is not made fully known till the Seventh Message of this last church age.” (End quote)

            QUOTE: THE FIRST SEAL, JEFF. IN. 63-0318 155-2 {259} 117, “Seven Thunders of revelation…. May He show the Bride how to prepare for the great translation faith.”

            155-4 {262} 118, “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.” (End quote)

            Again, we want to say that we have no heart to debate this question of the Seven Thunders being revealed with those who are already convinced otherwise. We simply present the Prophets own words, and do already know that those who have ears to hear will hear, and those who have eyes to see, will see! Yet, we hurry on to say that we do not break fellowship with those of a different opinion. We do realize that some of God’s true servants have not yet had the revelations that Brother Branham is setting forth in these statements. Therefore, we preach it with all the love we can muster, and in meekness of spirit. Remembering that we also lack understanding in some things.

            Please bear with us and take time to study the Prophet’s own words as we continue to present them to you. He taught that The Seals and The Thunders are the same thing. May God give us eye salve that we my see!

            QUOTE: LAODICEAN CHURCH AGE – THE CHURCH AGE BOOK. CH. 9 327-1, “Now this messenger of Malachi 4 and Revelation 10:7 is going to do two things.

            ONE:  According to Malachi 4, he will turn the hearts of the children to the fathers.

            TWO: He will reveal the MYSTERIES OF THE SEVEN THUNDERS IN REVELATION 10, WHICH ARE THE REVELATIONS CONTAINED IN THE SEVEN SEALS. It will be these divinely, revealed “mystery-truths” that literally turn the hearts of the Children to the Pentecostal Fathers. Exactly so.

            QUOTE: AUDIO LETTER TO LEE VAYLE, TUCSON, AZ  64-0500, “But when all these SEVEN THUNDER’S MYSTERIES IS TO BE MADE KNOWN, HE HAS TO COME AGAIN AS SON OF MAN. That is the same Holy Spirit back into human flesh perfectly paralleling Sodom when God was manifested in a human being. See? And, if He come then to the natural seed, Abraham, He comes now to the Royal Seed, Abraham, who is also waiting for the royal promised Son, not the natural, Isaac, but the royal promised Son. And, that’s why there can be nothing else but prophetic, as you have well explained it, a prophet for these last days.” (End quote)

            QUOTE: THE SEVENTH SEAL, JEFF, IN. 63-0324E 565-2 {307} 101, “Now, the voice of that great thunder and the mission that was brought here has been revealed that it…and proven that it was of God. Just think now. I knew not these Seals, and they been revealed this week. Did anybody think of that? Of those Seven Angel, being this being the message that was coming forth, them Angels bringing me back here for that?

            QUOTE: GOD IN SIMPLICITY, JEFF. IN. 63-0317M 18-6 {103} 059, “We’re…we’re in teaching, and you can realize what a great strain it is on me (See?), because if I teach anything wrong, I’m going to have to answer for it. See? And so, I must not take what anyone says; I must…it must be inspired. And, I believe that the Seven Angels, who holds these Seven Thunders, will grant it.” (End quote)

            (As each Angel “thundered” or “spoke” to the Prophet, a Seal was revealed. And notice, the scripture says Seven Thunders uttered their voices, not just six.)

            QUOTE: FEAST OF TRUMPETS, PAGE 20, “He put one foot on land and one on the sea and swore by Him that lives forever and ever, that time shall be no more. And when He did, Seven Thunders uttered their voices, John said he was about to write; and He said, ‘Don’t write it.’ See? AND HE SEALED IT!” (End quote)

            Please notice what it was that was SEALED; it was what the THUNDERS had spoken. Seven Seals were placed on the Seven Thunders, so that they could not be known until the end-time. But, just before the Rapture, the Seals were to be removed and the Mysteries revealed. Then, can we understand that when the Seals were pulled back, the Mysteries that had been hidden under them would be made known. The removal of the Seals revealed the Thunders.

            Now, let us go to the scriptures and see that they say the same thing. Rev. 10:3, “And cried with a loud voice as when a Lion roarth; and when He (Jesus) had cried Seven Thunders uttered their voices.

            Verse 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.”

            Notice the scriptures closely, for they do not lie. The Voice from Heaven said to John, “SEAL UP THOSE THINGS.” What things were to be sealed up? Was it not the MYSTERIES that the thunders had spoken? Surely! Then we are to understand that when the Seals were broken and removed from the Book (Bible), what the Thunders had spoken was revealed! This seems to be such an elementary conclusion that it is hard to miss when it is brought to our attention.  The Thunders and the Seals are one and the same. The Seals had the Thunders hidden, but once the Seals were removed the Thunders were in plain sight. Each Seal revealed what one of the Thunders had spoken. Who were the SPEAKERS that thundered out the Mysteries that the Seven Seals had been hiding? They were the Seven Theophany bodied Church Age Messengers, or Angels, who had come down with the Lord Jesus Christ, the seventh of which was the Angelic body of Brother William Branham himself. (Please see our sermon in book number one entitled, “Identification, Who Are We?”)

            From Sunset Mountain, Brother Branham was sent back to Jeffersonville to have the Seven Mysterious Thunders revealed to him. Each day for seven days one of the seven angelic beings (Men) entered the room at Jeffersonville with the Prophet, and gave him the revelation to be preached that night, starting with the First Church Age Messenger, the Apostle Paul. On the day that the Seventh Seal was to be preached that night, Brother Branham’s own theophany body appeared to him and opened the great and mysterious Seventh Seal. The Prophet knew it from that time on, but the public did not, neither did very many if any, of the Message Believers catch the revelation at that time.

            But, now that the Great Mystery is being revealed to more and more of the Bride, we see another proof of the nearness of the Rapture.

            QUOTE: THE SEVENTH SEAL, PAGE 577, “He omitted the revelation of the Seventh Seal, and here, when the Seventh Seal, WHEN HE OPENED IT. He also omitted it again. (The Prophet knew it but the public did not.) So, we see that it is a complete mystery, therefore, the hour is not yet for this Mystery to be known, therefore we’re this far, and THE REST OF IT WILL BE KNOWN RIGHT AROUND THE TIME THAT JESUS APPEARS ON EARTH AGAIN FOR HIS BRIDE……” (End quote)

            When the mysterious Seventh Seal is being made known, the Mystery that the Seventh Angelic Being thundered, then it’s RIGHT AROUND ABOUT THE TIME FOR JESUS TO APPEAR FOR HIS BRIDE.”

            When the Seventh Seal was opened to the Prophet, there was about one half hour of silence. The public received no revelation concerning it. Twenty years passed and God opened the Seal to a few brothers (In the early 80’s). Now, twenty more years have passed and the Mystery is being revealed to the Bride in general. We are looking for the Resurrection of the Dead in Christ! Amen.















            We know that this last Laodicean Age is the most deceiving age of all. The enemy is being allowed to deceive all whose hearts are not right with the Lord. We have a powerful promise in Matt. 24:24 where we are told that the Elect cannot be fooled, but there is need for a word of caution here. If we take this scripture to mean that the Elect cannot be fooled TEMPORARILY, then we have already been fooled. The fact is that the Elect can be on a side road, so to speak, and have need to be brought back to the Main Highway (the Word). If we rightly divide this scripture, we will see that it means the Elect cannot be fooled PERMANENTLY. Bride Member, have you ever been wrong about some teaching and the Lord had to correct you? I doubt if there be one who has not had to be corrected, and most of us many times!

            Therefore, we should see the dire necessity of keeping our minds open, and always comparing our thoughts with the scriptures, and our Prophet’s explanation of them. This brings us to the topic of this chapter, “Are All The Mysteries Finished?” Were they all revealed to the Prophet of Malachi 4, or do we wait for another man to come, or for the Prophet to come back and finish the work? We are well aware of the good Brothers who believe that Brother Branham will have a return ministry, some of them are our good friends, and we have not one bad thing to say about them. However, we feel led to share our thoughts with you, while we pray that you will not have anything bad to say about us for doing so. If there was ever a time that we need to follow Paul’s teaching to, “All speak the same thing, and that there be no division among us,” (I Cor. 1:10) it is now! There is only one way for the Bride to reach this place of unity, and that is by honoring and respecting each other, while we keep an open mind to the teaching of the Holy Ghost that lives in us.

            We will now present some statements of the Prophet which, in our mind, seem to prove that all the Mysteries were revealed through his ministry, and that Rapturing Faith lays in the messages that we already have. May our Lord give us eye salve as we study what the Prophet, himself, said concerning the mysteries!

            QUOTE: FEAST OF THE TRUMPETS, JEFF. IN. 64-0719M 20-3 107, “This is the complete revelation of Jesus Christ, and the Seven Seals had the mysteries hid of what it all was, and is supposed to open it in the last day, at the Ladodicean Age, at the end of time. Thanks be to God that finishes the Message to the Church. That finishes it, when they look back and see what has been, and see where it’s all brought up to, that finishes it, the age of the church. (There is no more to come later.)

            According to the above quote, when Revelation 10 was fulfilled and the Seven Seals were opened, all the mysteries of God were finished. If all the mysteries were finished, then that means the Seven Thunders were also revealed! The Third Pull Ministry of the Prophet was the opening of the Full Word to the Bride, and even though we did not see it at the time, it was in the scriptures and was revealed in the sermons the Prophet preached. A sex-born man, redeemed by the Blood of Jesus Christ, reenacted the exact ministry of Christ, and fulfilled Luke 17:22-30, the ministry of “The Son of Man.” Christ in the man, William Branham, was the voice of God to the people, just as in the days of old, when God spoke through His Prophets.

            In the following quote, Brother Branham tells us WHAT the “Message of the Hour” was to do. It was to restore back the hearts of the Children to the Faith that was once delivered to the Saints. Not just a partial Message, but a Message that would restore the FULL FAITH that the early Church had. To have faith, we must of necessity have a FULL MESSAGE, A COMPLETE MESSAGE.

            QUOTE: GOD’S CHOSEN PLACE OF WORSHIP, JEFF. IN. V-5 N-7 65-0220 114 055, “I’ve stood here now for some thirty years around the city here and screamed this same Message. I’m getting old. I can’t be with you too much longer. But remember, in the day of Judgment, my voice is recorded, and it’ll speak out against you…..And that’s suppose to be the Message of the hour, to restore back the hearts of the children back to the faith that was once delivered to the saints.” (End quote)

            The Message he brought was a complete message, not one to restore only partial Faith, but Perfect Faith, even as the early Fathers had it. The Prophet was given the Faith to believe he could not be taken off the earth until the work of the Seventh Angel was fully completed; which angel he was.

            QUOTE: POSSESSING ALL THINGS, JEFF. IN. V-10 N-4 62-0506 9 007, “And I remember the vision of the Lord not long ago. Do you remember me telling it here? The sweetness of the Lord that morning, said, “Do not fear whatever, wherever to go, or what, for the never-failing Presence of Jesus Christ is with you wherever you go.” So he can’t, Satan can’t kill me until God says, “It’s finished.” See? He might try it, but he’ll never succeed in doing it.” (End quote)

            ONE IN A MILLION, L.A. CA, V-18 N-1 65-0425M 13 008, “Father, I pray thee that Thou will in somehow help me, give me strength, for the hour that I’m now facing. And, if my work is finished here on Earth, THEN I must come to You.” (End quote)

            The following statements of Brother Branham do not suggest to this writer that he was taken to Glory before his work here was finished.

            QUOTE: SEVEN CHURCH AGES, JEFF. IN. V-26 N-2 54-0512 41 018, “John, his destiny was met like this. He was caught and boiled in a vat of grease for twenty-four hours, of hot boiling grease, and without any harm coming to him. And they put him on the isle, as commonly believed, as a witch, ‘He bewitched the grease so it wouldn’t burn him,’ they said. ‘Course, it was the Power of God, that…You can’t boil the Holy Spirit out of a man. Why, so they tried to boil it out of him, but God wouldn’t permit it. And He had a work for him to do. And until God was finished with His man, nothing in the world can bother him. That’s all.” (End quote)

            QUOTE: THE WAY OF A TRUE PROPHET, JEFF. IN. V-3N 14 62-0513M 2-1 004, “I want to thank each and every one of you all for your prayers for me while I… You know, I had a little explosion down on the range down there. And Satan tried to kill me and…and a….’Course he couldn’t do it; God wasn’t through with me yet. So he just can’t do it until it’s all over. When God’s finished, then I’m ready.” (End quote)

            QUOTE: LEADERSHIP, COVINA, CA V-7 N-7 65-1207 180 083, “No, I don’t want to hurt you. And this is not a joke; this is THUS SAITH THE LORD from the scriptures. It’s exactly true, friend. I’m an old man, I haven’t got much longer to stay, but I’ve got to tell you the Truth. If this is my last message, it’s the Truth. See?” (End quote) (All of the truth!)

            QUOTE: ANOINTED ONES AT THE END TIME, JEFF. IN. V-5 N-3 65-0725M 115 081, “Now, care all this Message. And when you listen to the tape…even maybe I’ll be gone someday WHEN the Lord’s finished with me here on the earth…you’ll refer back to this. Listen to my voice, what I’m telling you. If He takes me before His coming, just remember, I’ve spoke to you in the Name of the Lord by the Word of the Lord.” (End quote) (Did he leave some loose ends? No! God finished His Message!)       

            QUOTE: WHAT DOES THOU HERE, JEFF. IN. 59-0301E E-26 026, “And no matter how much we cry out and think this, that, or the other, nothing can take us until God is finished with us.” (End quote)

            To be finished with a work is to have “completed” it. To have completed the Message, is to say it is the last one! (See the quote below.)

            QUOTE: QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS, JEFF. IN. COD 61-0112, “But, this Message that I am preaching is the true message of this day, AND IT’S THE LAST MESSAGE. You see what I’m doing, Brethren? I’m putting you all in the same place I am, cause you’re just as much into it as I am. You are messengers of this same message.” (End quote) (So don’t try to add something to it later)

            The complete message, or revelation of Jesus Christ, was given to our Prophet, and he gave it to the Bride. All Hell is against it being revealed, but so what! Who is the most powerful, the Creator or the created ones? God promised that the Seventh Angel would tie up all the loose ends, and so He did. We are now looking back and seeing what has been done. God is now known by His Bride, and rapturing faith is being the result!

            QUOTE: UNVEILING OF GOD, JEFF. IN. V-9 N-1 64-0614M 295 148, “The Word itself revealed, reveals itself. Think. The mysteries of God made known to us in this day.” (End quote)(All we need to know has been revealed!)

            QUOTE: CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY, JEFF. IN. V-3 N-7 63-0728 72-5 233, “Notice, all right. But all this mystery is revealed only as He promised to His Bride. Hell is against this truth of the revelation of this mystery. But the Bride is standing on it. That’s Her stand. Why do you hunger, Church? Why do you thirst? It’s the Father trying to reveal this hidden secret to you, but you let so many things get it out of you. You let your job, you let your wife, you let your husband, you let your children, you let the cares of the world, you let the…some pastor, you let somebody else get that out of you, when you know that way down in your heart you’re a-thirsting, hungry. It’s God trying to reveal it to you (See?), the revelation. The last day is here.” (End quote) (Is God only wanting to give us half a loaf, or all of it?)

            QUOTE: EPHESIAN CHURCH AGE, JEFF. IN. ROJC 131-183 60-1205 39 026, “As Daniel heard the Seven Thunders and forbidden; and John heard the voices, and this Book was sealed, and the back of the book was sealed with Seven Seals; but in the days of these Seals to be opened, the mystery of God would be finished. In other words, God would be known to His church, not in three people, but as one Person. The mystery of God would be revealed, and when that was completely revealed, then the seven mysteries would open to the church; because, in there, the church would be living under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, Him moving in and out and showing His signs of being alive and among us, living among us, and we’re then worshipping the living Christ that’s among us.” (End quote) (Worshipping the full word, Christ)

            QUOTE: THE ABSOLUTE, JEFF. DEC. 1962 PAGE 35, “Oh, and I remember when He swept down there in that big light, standing yonder at the bottom of the river, 1933 in June, when He said, “As John the Baptist was sent forth and forerun the first coming of Christ, I send you with a Message to the world to forerun the second coming of Christ. And around the world she’s went, when revival fires had been built for fifteen years on nearly every mountain. Divine Healing across the nations, and the power and restoration, AND NOW I BELIEVE SHE’S READY TO STRIKE THAT FINAL CLIMAX YONDER, TO BRING FORTH A FAITH THAT WILL RAPTURE THE CHURCH INTO GLORY, AND SHE’S LAYING IN THE MESSAGES. We’re really at the end-time. We’ve talked about it and everything, but the thing has moved upon us now. HEAR THEM! Yes Sir! Here’s One. That’s right!” (End quote)

            Did you notice that he said Rapturing Faith is laying in the Messages NOW? Then he said, “Hear them!” not wait for more Message to come, but hear what has already been preached. We are trying to place enough of the Prophet’s statements together, to show that he taught all the Mysteries were revealed, finished, and that all the Bride needs to perfect her is already laying in the Messages. Please study the following quotes:

            QUOTE: UNVEILING OF GOD, JEFF. IN. 64-0614M 341 174, “But now as Revelation 10 is revealed, the mysteries of God is made manifest, known, as the seven-sealed book promised.” (End quote) (Mysteries already made known!)

            QUOTE: THE RAPTURE, YUMA, AZ 65-1204 155 117, “I say it because it’s Life, because I’m responsible to God for saying it. And I must say it. And my Message…..all the time knowing back there under healing and so forth like that, was just to catch the people’s attention, knowing the Message would come, and here it is. And them Seven Seals opened, those mysteries and showing those things is what’s happened.” (End quote) (The Mysteries already revealed!)

            QUOTE: PERFECT FAITH, JEFF. IN. 63-08253 184 078, “This is coming into that Third Pull!....And watch a perfect God, with a perfect heart, keep a perfect promise, by His perfect Word, which is sharper than a two-edged sword and Discerner of the thoughts of the heart. What? We’re coming now to the perfection, because the people has to come to this in order for the Rapture. That’s what’s holding it away right now, is waiting for that church to come into that perfect raptured faith.” (End quote) (A perfect Message already given waiting for us to see it!)

            QUOTE: I HAVE HEARD BUT NOW I SEE, SHP. LA 65-1127E 201 122, “And then He promised, in the hour of the seventh angel’s Message, the Seven Seals would be revealed; and the mysteries of God would be declared (Revelation 10) When the seventh angel begins to sound his Message, not the healing service, the Message that follows the healing service.” (End quote) (The full message has been preached!)

            QUOTE: SIR, IS THIS THE TIME OF THE END? JEFF. IN. 1962 1230E, “Now watch here. But, in the days of the Voice of the Seventh Angel, when he shall begin to sound, THE MYSTERY OF GOD SHOULD BE FINISHED. Notice his type of Message; FINISHING ALL THE MYSTERIES OF GOD THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE BOOK….THE SEVENTH ANGEL GATHERS THEM UP AND FINISHES THE ENTIRE MYSTERY. That’s what the Bible said; FINISHES THE MYSTERY OF THE WRITTEN BOOK.” (End quote) (Dozens of times the Prophet said that his ministry FINISHES ALL THE MYSTERIES.)

            If we have any confidence at all in our Prophet, then we must conclude that the entire mystery was preached before Brother Branham was taken from the scene. No other man should try to add to what has been ministered; neither should we expect Brother Branham to resurrect before the rest of the Bride, to bring truths still hidden! There is a great controversy over the statement, “We’ll ride this trail again.” Some good brothers have used it as a foundation to teach a “Return Ministry” doctrine, but we wonder if it has not been misunderstood. Again, let us say that we honor our Brothers’ belief, and have no intention of disfellowshipping them, however, we believe we can show that all doctrines have been already divinely revealed, and faithfully preached, so that we are not waiting for any further teaching. Our duty now is to study what has already been brought, and make ourselves ready for the Rapture. Let the Prophet speak again…and again, and let us hear!

            QUOTE: WHO IS THIS MELCHISEDEC, JEFF. IN. V-5 N-10 65-0221E 42 022, “Notice, like the sculptor, he hides with a..a mask over it. That’s what God’s done to this age. It’s been hid. All these things has been hid, and is supposed to be revealed in this age. Now, the Bible says they would be revealed in the latter times. It’s like a sculptor keeping his..his piece of work all covered over until the time he takes the mask off of it and there it is. And that’s what the Bible has been. It has been a work of God that’s been covered up. And it’s been hid since the foundation of the world, and its sevenfold mystery, and God promised in this day, at the age of this Laodicean Church, He would take the mask off the whole thing and we could see it.

            What a glorious thing, God, En morphe, masked in a Pillar of Fire, God, En morphe in a Man called Jesus, God, En morphe in His church; God above us, God with us, God in us, the condescending of God. Up there holy, no one could touch Him; He settled upon the mountain. And even if a animal touch the mountain, had to die.” (End quote)

            QUOTE: RISING OF THE SUN, JEFF. IN. V-3 N-12 65-0418M 2-4 005, “And so, there He spoke to me and said, ‘The Seven Seals will be opened. The seven mysteries….sevenfold mystery of the Bible that’s been closed up since the foundation of the world will be revealed.’ And we, yet a humble little group compared with all the world, we’ve enjoyed these blessings now, hearing those mysteries: Marriage, Divorce, Serpent’s Seed. All those different questions has been completely revealed to us, not by man but by God, Himself, that’s opened those seven mysteries of what the church was, how it was in Christ at the beginning, and how it would be revealed in the last day.” (End quote)

            QUOTE: MARRIAGE AND DIVORCE, JEFF. IN. V-3 N-13 65-0221M 43-3 091, “Now, on the marriage and divorce. See, it has to be revealed. Until it’s revealed, you don’t know it. But He promised in this last days, in this age, that every hidden mystery in the Bible would be revealed. How many knows that? (Revelations the 10th Chapter) Jesus promised it, that all these hidden mysteries on…on marriage and divorce, all these other hidden mysteries that’s been would be revealed in the end time.

            Now, you remember the Voice said, ‘Go to Tucson.’ You remember a mystic Light in the skies, the seven Angels standing there? Come back and the opening of the Seven Seals?” (End quote)

            QUOTE: UNVEILING OF GOD, JEFF. IN. V-9 N-1 64-0614M, “The whole mercy seat’s setting in plain view; anybody can see it; the veils rent. Glory to God. The whole mercy seat comes into plain view.

            118 063, How God could have mercy on foul sinners as us, when He hid Himself, was a mystery. And now it’s in plain view, or in full view revealed by His Word. It’s always the Word, constantly; that is God. It’s the Word that opens it up. If those people would’ve knowed the Word of God that day when Jesus died, they’d have seen the mercy seat, they would’ve seen Who He was.” (End quote)

            What more could be said to show us that all the Mysteries have been revealed and preached? Then, what need is there for a return ministry when the Bride now has the Word formed in Her and She is God’s Mouth Piece in these last hours?

            What about the statement, “We will ride this trail again?” When we look at this in the light of everything else that Brother Branham said, we understand that he was not speaking of coming back himself to reveal more mysteries, but that the Message he had already brought would go forth again in the form of books and tapes, and then through the Bride after he was gone.

            QUOTE: GOD’S PROVIDED PLACE OF WORSHIP, SHP. LA. V-7 N-4 65-1128M 4 003, “The shuck’s pulling away so the wheat can lay out there now. See? So just keep reverent; keep praying. See? Remember, they that wait upon the Lord, renew their strength. Now, there’s…I was getting pretty old, and I thought, ‘Will I….Will there be another revival, I’ll see another time?’ And just remember, from the west will come a white horse rider. We’ll ride this trail again. That’s right. Soon as we get ready. It’s a promise.” (End quote) (As soon as the Bride gets ready to receive the revelations)

            QUOTE: LEAN NOT UNTO YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING, PHOENIX, AZ V-19 N-3 65-0120 88 037, “Oh, people, don’t think I…You may think I’m crazy. But when my voice is silenced in death, these tapes will still be playing, and you’ll recognize that what I’ve said has come to pass.” (End quote) (The Bride will see that it’s all been said and she will preach it, as did the prophet!)

            QUOTE: KNOWETH IT NOT, JEFF. IN. V-2 N-10 65-0815 8-6 022, “And I know that after my going away from this earth, them tapes and them books will be living on, 5 and many of you young children will find in the days to come that this is exactly the truth, because I speak in the Name of the Lord.” (End quote) (Nothing more could be added to the overall message. It was in the Name of the Lord.)

            Also, there is another spiritual application that could be made concerning Brother Branham’s statement, “We’ll ride this trail again.” We know that Brother Branham had the spirit of Elijah on him, and in Rev. 11:3, the Bible speaks of the two witnesses (Prophets) that will appear in Israel to preach this very same Message, “And I will give power unto My two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and three score days, clothed in sackcloth.” We were taught that this will be two men of this day, one with the spirit of Moses upon him, and the other with the spirit of Elijah.

            In a spiritual sense then, this man with the spirit of Elijah could be said to be “Riding this trail again” at the time he fulfills his ministry. He will preach the very same Message to the Jews that Brother William Branham has already preached to the Gentiles. And in one sense of the Word, the spirit of Elijah will ride this trail again, but through another man, the fifth Elijah that is to come.










            For years, some of us have been mystified about the Tent Vision. What actually was it, and has it been fulfilled? It is this writer’s opinion that we have been overlooking a very important statement that Brother Branham made when the Lord picked him up and showed him the Tent. Here is the statement, “The LIGHT whirled away from me…..and went over to the Tent, and said (Notice, the LIGHT said), “I’ll meet you there.” (In the little room) And said, “THIS WILL BE THE THIRD PULL, AND YOU WON’T TELL IT TO NOBODY.” Read the full quote below:

            QUOTE: THE SEVENTH SEAL, JEFF. IN. 63-0324E, “Here it is, the one with the Seventh Seal, the thing that I’ve wondered all my life. Amen. Them other seals meant a lot to me, of course, but, oh, you don’t know what this has meant. For one time in life…I prayed; I cried out to God. After that Phoenix meeting, any of the people there with me know; I laid in the mountains. One morning I got up and went up in Sabino Canyon; it’s a great rugged high mountain. And I’d went up in there, and there was a little foot trail after you lead off…go on up into Lemmon Mountain which is a thirty mile walk, and there about thirty foot of snow up there.

            And just then He picked me up. And He took me up and set me way up high to where a meeting was going on, looked like a tent or a cathedral of some sort. And I looked, and there was a little box-like, little place over in the side. And I seen that Light was talking to somebody above me, that Light that you see there on the picture. It whirled away from me, like that, and went over to that tent, and said, “I’ll meet you there.” And said, “This will be the Third Pull, and you won’t tell it to nobody.” (End quote)

            It is strange indeed how we can look at certain statements of the Prophet, and also at a scripture, for years, and have no special understanding concerning them, then one day, in a flash, we see something that we had not seen before. A revelation opens up to us as the Gracious Lord shines His Light into our minds. It was this way concerning the preceding statement. One day as I read it over again, I suddenly saw that the Voice that was speaking to the Prophet told him exactly what the Tent Vision was! I was stunned at the simplicity of the thing that had been a question in my mind for years.

            Notice with me what the Voice in the LIGHT actually said to Brother Branham. When He whirled away and went over to the TENT, He said, “I’ll meet you there (In the Little Room) and then He said, “THIS WILL BE THE THIRD PULL, AND YOU WON’T TELL IT TO ANYBODY.” In other, plainer words, “The Tent Vision and what it represents will be the Third Pull of your Ministry.” Brother Branham was told that the Lord would meet him there, in the Little Room, then added, “You won’t tell the meaning of this Tent Vision to anybody.”

            And in reality, that is the way it came to pass. In fact, Brother Branham, himself, apparently did not understand the full meaning of the vision for quite a long time. He truly thought he would minister in a huge tent before his ministry was over. A number of statements he made backs this up, although it never became a reality. But, if what the Voice told him be true (and we know it was), then the Tent was only a spiritual representation of the Third Pull Ministry. It apparently represented meetings that the Prophet would have where Jesus Christ in him, would re-enact His own Ministry of 2000 years ago, which was the Third Pull Ministry.

            It seems to this writer that the little room, or closet, represented the deep secret that veiled the Third Pull Ministry of the Prophet. For many years, most of us did not understand that the Third Pull and the Seventh Seal was one and the same thing. The mystery under the Seventh Seal was the Coming of Christ in a DIFFERENT WAY than any of us expected. He came BEFORE the Rapture in the body of His Prophet of Mal. 4:5. The third stage of Brother Branham’s ministry then was the ministry of Jesus Christ, Himself, done on Earth again through a Prophet, and when the Seventh Seal was pulled back we saw that it had been hiding this mystery secret.

            Yes, the Third Pull Ministry, and the Seventh Seal that had been hiding the secret of what it was, can be said to be the same thing. Then the question arises, was the Third Pull Ministry completed, was it finished before the Prophet was taken up? We believe that we have proved in previous chapters of this book that the Prophet’s ministry was finished when he left. If this be true, and because the Angel said the Tent Vision and the Third Pull was the same thing, we conclude that the Tent Vision was completed, although no actual tent played a part in it.

            We are aware of at least three places where Brother Branham stated, after the Seals were opened, that he was expecting to preach under the huge Tent he had seen in the vision. If you will permit me to say it, I believe with all my heart that Brother Branham had misinterpreted the vision about the Tent. I refer to the part about the Tent being a literal canvas structure. We do well to remember that the Prophet was a man who had thoughts of his own, just as we do, some of which were right and some wrong!

            Many of us are very familiar with the statement Brother Branham made wherein he predicted (not prophesied) that, “I sincerely believe and maintain, as a private student of the Word, along with Divine Inspiration, that 1977 ought to  terminate the World Systems, and usher in the Millennium.” (Church Age Book, Page 322) This did not happen, but neither did it side track any of the Bride. They knew that their Prophet was a man and had thoughts of his own, the same as we all do. Perhaps the Lord allowed it to prove His Prophet’s humanity, knowing that the Bride would understand and not be moved away from the “Thus Saith The Lord” part of the Message. To this writer, Brother Branham’s thought about the Tent Vision involving a literal, canvas Tent was also his own thought.

            The Vision itself was “Thus Saith the Lord,” but as we know, all visions must also be interpreted by the Lord, and even a Prophet can have his own thoughts about it.

            In studying the overall Message, I can see where the meeting in the Little Room, or closet, between Brother Branham and the Angel of the Lord, was fulfilled. He was told that the Angel would meet him in the room. That happened when the Prophet went back to Jeffersonville and spent several days in a room by himself, where the Seven Seals were revealed to him one day at a time. That part of the vision was fulfilled exactly.

            And, do you remember that Brother Branham was told that what happened in the room would be the “Third Pull?” that is exactly what happened. The Seven Seals being opened to him in the Little Room resulted in his Third Pull Ministry. I believe it is quite possible that the huge Tent represented the World as being the Prophet's mission field. In the message, “Ever Present Water From the Rock,” Brother Branham said this about a vision he had in 1933.

            QUOTE: “The morning that I dedicated the Tabernacle, a vision came, which is written in the cornerstone there, when the Holy Spirit said to me, “This is not your Tabernacle.” And I asked where my Tabernacle was, and He set me down under the bright blue skies, and said, “Do the work of an evangelist.” (This he did, going around the World with the Message.)

            Let us now read another statement concerning the Tent Vision, and study it.

            QUOTE: WHAT IS A VISION, CHI. IL. V-2 N-9 56-0408A 18-6 058, “And it left me, and it went right down over the top of that audience and went and stood over the top of that little building, then settled down on top of it. And then when it did, this One that was standing by me, behind me, the same voice, the Angel’s voice, he said, “I’ll meet you in there, and this is the Third Pull, but nobody will know nothing about it.”

            And I said, ‘Well, I don’t understand why in there. Why there?” He said, “It will not be a public show this time.” I said, “I don’t understand going into that closet, like that.” And he said, “Is it not written by our Lord, when thou prayest, be not like the hypocrites who like to be heard before men, but enter into a secret closet and pray to the Father who seeth in secret, and He who seeth in secret shall reward thee openly?” it’s perfectly to the scripture; every time it is.

            And I said, “I understand.” Then He took me to this place and 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, that’ll…when I leave this world, that’ll still be in my bosom.” (End quote)

            In this statement, we read where the Lord told the Prophet He would meet him face to face and speak to him personally. This actually happened in the room in Jeffersonville when the Lord spoke to the Prophet through the Seven Theophany-bodied Church Age Messengers. The result of God speaking to Brother Branham in this fashion was to be the beginning of his Third Pull Ministry. The Angel had said, “I’ll meet you in there and this is the Third Pull, but nobody will know anything about it.” When the Seven Seals were revealed, the Third Pull Ministry began. Can we then see that the Tent Vision was all about the opening of the Seven Seals and the beginning of the Third Pull Ministry? But, it was God’s secret for the time being.

            When Brother Branham questioned the Angel as to why he must go into the little room, he was told, “It will not be a public show this time.” In the Tent Vision, a line of people was seen going into that little room and coming out the other side, healed, and very happy. They were asked, “What happened in there?” And, they answered, “I don’t know.” I believe this line of people represented the Bride who was also to pass through the little room, in a spiritual sense, and receive the same revelations that Brother Branham did in Jeffersonville in the room there. The revelations that came from the opening of the Seals gave them new faith.

            In the last part of the quote What Is a Vision, the Lord was said to have, “Took me to this place and 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’ll still be in my bosom.” (End quote)

            What did he mean that the secret would still be in his bosom? Remember, this was said in 1956. As always, we must put all that we can find that he said about one subject together, then we have a more clear picture of what he was saying. In the message, UNVEILING OF GOD, JEFF. IN  64-0614M, he made another statement that, in my mind, goes with the one he made in the sermon WHAT IS A VISION.

            QUOTE: UNVEILING OF GOD PAGE 53, “One day down on the river, before the ministry started, first revival, he appeared in the skies, identified Himself, and gave the commission. ALL THESE YEARS I’VE HID IT IN MY HEART, VEILING CHRIST, SAME PILLAR OF FIRE INTERPRETING THE WORD, AS PROMISED.” (End quote)

            What was it that the Prophet kept veiled in his heart all those years? To this writer, it was the Third Pull Ministry, which was the exact ministry of Christ reenacted on Earth through His Prophet, William Branham. Although in the last years of His ministry, after the Seals were opened, he did all he was allowed to do in preaching what had taken place, showing that an unexpected coming of the Lord had happened, and that before the Rapture. God had come down in a Prophet once again, even as He had done in Moses. The scripture says of Moses, “I have made thee a God to Pharaoh.” (Ex. 7:1) Again in John 10:35, “If He called them gods, unto whom the Word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken…..” Our Prophet, William Branham “veiled Christ,” even as Moses had done. But he was not deity, it was God hid behind human skin!




            QUOTE: UNVEILING OF GOD, JEFF. IN V-9 N-1 64-0614M 231 116, “Behind the old temple, in the veil, what was back behind there? What was Jehovah? What was hid back there? What was the veil hiding? Oh, hallelujah. What was the veil hiding? It was hiding the Word.” (End quote)

            QUOTE: UNVEILING OF GOD, JEFF. IN. V-9 N-1 64-0614M 295 148, “The Word manifested or revealed in that revelation in there, then what does that put me? If He is that  Shekinah Glory, I’m part of it. Amen. Oh, Amen, that‘s right. The Word itself revealed, reveals Itself. Think. The mysteries of God made known to us in this day by the same heavenly Messenger that was made known to them in them days. Notice, the same Pillar of Fire that sent Moses, the same Pillar of Fire that was on Moses that wrote the Bible….” (End quote)

            QUOTE: IDENTIFIED CHRIST OF ALL THE AGES, TOPEKA KS. V-20 N-1 64-0617 38 019, “The word was in Moses, the prophet. He went up on the mountain. He had met the Pillar of Fire, and it was spoke to him. He went down and performed the signs of the Prophet, brought children of Israel out of Egypt to this mountain. And then God came down and identified Moses, by bringing him into that Pillar of Fire inveiling Him. No one else could go. Not any person could try to impersonate that, could not do it; they died. Taken one man, he went in behind here into the Pillar of Fire into the Glory of God, and into the Shekinah Glory; and when he came out with that Word for that age, he was so shinning with the Glory of God till he had to veil his face. The people couldn’t steadfast look upon him. And that was the natural veil.” (End quote)

            QUOTE: UNVEILING OF GOD, JEFF. IN. V-9 N-1 64-0614M 333 170, “What’s this Shekinah Glory today to break beyond the veil to see who God is standing before you? See who God is standing here before us? The…The Pillar of Fire, He’s veiled in human flesh. But what does it does? What did it do? The Shewbread Seed, the Word that we’re to live on in this day by these promises, the Shekinah Glory ripens that Shewbread, brings it to pass, makes it Bread to the Believers, that laid in the pages of the Bible year after year, the Word for this age.” (End quote)

            To me, the Tent Vision was God showing the Prophet and the Bride what was to happen in the last, or Third Stage, of Brother Branham’s ministry. It was to be Christ, the Full Word, here among us calling His Bride. But it was to be a mystery, a hidden secret, to all outside of Christ. Therefore, the Little Room was used as a symbol of this secret revelation, and as the Bride passed through it in the vision, it symbolized their receiving the same revelations from the mouth of the Prophet. And although the Bride did not understand for a season, they were being healed in Mind, Body, Soul, and Spirit as the powerful revelations flowed forth. The Bride is being given rapturing faith because of what happened in the Little Room.

            What was the secret of the Message? Was it not shown to us in the Tent Vision? The Vision showed our Lord going about His business of fulfilling His Word for our age. The vision showed the lame leaping as an hart as they passed through the little building. It showed the mysteries being revealed to the Prophet in the Little Room. It showed forth Mal. 4, Luke 17:30, Heb. 13:8, John 14:12, and Rev. 10, and the vision showed that all the mysteries would be revealed, and so have they been! It showed the man God would use to show forth the mysteries.

            QUOTE: SEED IS NOT HEIR WITH THE SHUCK, JEFF. IN. V-6 N-4 65-0218 152 105, “There’s the secret of the Message now. Just exactly, the Father’s business. What is the Father’s business? Could you think of what our Father’s business was to Him? To fulfill what Isaiah said, ‘A virgin shall conceive.’ Fulfill what Isaiah said again, ‘the lame shall leap like a hart,’ and all these thing that’d take place; like Moses said, ‘The Lord your God shall raise up a prophet among you liken unto me.’

            It was the Father’s business to fulfill that Word. Well, if that come down through them stalks of them natural women, what about these stalks of these spiritual church women? Churches means women…women means churches, rather. Is that right? Then what is it now? ‘We must be about the Father’s business,’ the wheat would cry back, the grain! Yes sir. What must it do? Vindicate Mal. 4; vindicate Luke 17:30; vindicate Heb. 13:8, vindicate St. John 14:12; vindicate all of His Word: vindicate Hebrews…I mean Revelation the 10th chapter; of the opening of the Seven Seals: and the mysteries of God, even to the Serpent’s Seed, and all would be manifested: Marriage and divorce and all these other mysteries that’s been hid under the pillars from all these years from the theologians and so forth, but it’s now the hour. That’s the Father’s business. Think they would receive it?” (End quote)

            No, the denominational church world did not receive it, but we sincerely believe the Tent Vision was fulfilled, and because of it, the Bride is now looking for a resurrection and then the Rapture. Amen!



































            We would not be so presumptuous as to say that we understand all that was hidden under the Great Seventh Seal. In the back of my mind, I can’t help but wonder if there will yet be a revelation concerning more about the actual time of the Rapture, but that remains to be seen. However, there are some things that we do know happened as the Seventh Seal was being pulled back, things that some may not have connected with the opening of it. We will mention of a few of them.

            1. The Seventh Seal was “THE KINGS SWORD” placed in the hand of the Prophet. In 1963, Brother Branham was up in Sabino Canyon praying, when suddenly a bright, shinning sword appeared in his up-lifted hand. I will give his own statement about what happened.

            QUOTE: THE SEVEN SEALS, PAGE 561 AND 562, “In Sabino Canyon, sitting up there that morning, I had my hands up, and the wind had blowed my old black hat down. I was standing there with my hands up, praying. I said, ‘Lord God, what does this mean?’ (Brother Branham had experienced a powerful vision a few months earlier, where a terrible explosion took place and a constellation of Angels came down and picked him up. He couldn’t understand the meaning of the vision, and wondered if it meant his death.) ‘I can’t understand it Lord. What am I to do?’…and I had my hands out and all at once, something hit my hand. I don’t know. I can’t say. Did I go to sleep? I don’t know. Was it a vision? I can’t tell you. The only thing I can say is from what…..just the same thing like them Angels was. And it struck my hand, and I looked and it was a sword, and it had pearl handles, real pretty; and had a guard over it with gold, and the blade looked like something like chrome, like silver, only it was real shiny. And it was so featheredged sharp. Oh my!”

            CONT. QUOTE: ……….And just then a Voice shook down through there that rocked the rocks! Said, ‘It’s the Sword of the King!’ And then I came out of it. The Sword of the King………Standing there, when this left me, something just come to me and said, ‘Don’t fear.’ Now, I didn’t hear no Voice, like on the inside of me spoke. I just tell you the truth, just exactly what happened. Something hit and said, ‘DON’T FEAR. THIS IS THAT THIRD PULL.” (End quote)

            We know that the Third Pull and the Seventh Seal was the same thing, the Coming of the Lord, Himself, in Spirit Form, to repeat His ministry of 2000 years ago. And the Voice told Brother Branham that the Sword represented the Third Pull Ministry. From this, we can see that the Kings Sword was the Seventh Seal, the opening of the Word, the revealing of the Mysteries. It was speaking the Words of God and seeing the things spoken come to pass. The Kings Sword was the Seventh Seal manifested!

            2. The opening of the Seventh Seal was over a period of time, it was in three stages. The Prophet said, “It’s in a threefold manner.”

            QUOTE: SEAL BOOK PAGE 557, “And now as certain as I stand in the platform tonight, I had the revelation that revealed….IT’S IN A THREEFOLD MANNER. That, I will speak to you by God’s help of a fold of it.” (End quote)

            In the RAPTURE MESSAGE, PAGE 29, Brother Branham said: QUOTE: “He ordained these things to be, and He must send this. The first thing come when He starts descending from the Heaven, there’s a SHOUT. What is it? It’s a Message to get the people together. A Message comes forth first. Now, lamp trimming time. Rise and trim your lamps. What watch was that? The seventh, not the sixth, the Seventh. Behold the Bridegroom commeth. Rise and trim your lamps. And they did. Some of them found they didn’t even have any oil in their lamp. See! But it’s lamp trimming time. It’s Malachi Four time when you come…’s Luke 17…….” (End quote)

            In I Thess.4: 16, we see the three stages of the coming of the Lord, “For the Lord Himself shall descend from Heaven with a SHOUT, with THE VOICE OF THE ARCH ANGEL, and with THE TRUMP OF GOD, and the dead in Christ shall rise first.”

            Notice the first stage, The Lord HIMSELF shall descend from Heaven with a SHOUT (A Message). We have lived to see this first stage of the Rapture fulfilled. In Rev. 10 1:3, the scripture promised that this mighty Angel, Christ, would come down, and He did come, and He had in His Hand a little book opened, and in verse three He cried with a LOUD VOICE (The Shout) and Seven Thunders uttered their voices (Revealed the mysteries that had been hidden under the Seven Seals).

            The first stage of the Rapture is in progress, and has been so since the Seals were opened. We must be very near to the second stage, which will be the Voice to call the dead Bride from the graves. We are showing that the Rapture is being brought to pass in three stages, over a period of time. The Shout had to do with a Coming of the Lord that was one of the deep mysteries under the Seventh Seal, His coming in a Prophet. The second stage, the VOICE, is yet to happen. The third stage will be the Lord appearing in the sky to call the Bride up to where He is. His feet do not touch the earth at this Coming; it is a secret to the nominal church world!

            The third stage is the Rapture itself. And, according to the Prophet, is the third part of the mystery of the Seventh Seal, or that is to say the last stage of the Coming of the Lord. We will let him explain it in his own words again.

            QUOTE: THE RAPTURE, PAGE 32, “The first thing… a SHOUT, and then a VOICE, and then a TRUMPET. Shout, a Messenger getting the people ready. The second is a VOICE of the Resurrection, the same Voice that, a loud Voice in St. John 11:38-44 that called Lazarus from the grave. Getting the Bride together, and then the Resurrection of the Dead. (See?)  To be caught up with it. Now watch the three things take place…….Now the third thing is a TRUMPET, which always at the Feast of the Trumpets, is calling the people to the Feast; And that’ll be the Bride’s Supper, the Lamb’s Supper with the Bride in the sky…….. Why, it’s…that’s the thing that takes place friends. We’re right there ready now. The only thing the Church coming out has got to lay before the sun to ripen. The great combine will come by after while……” (End quote)

            And so, we see that the Prophet taught that the Coming of the Lord would be in three stages, or that is to say, spaced out in different periods of time. First, the SHOUT, which was a Message from God that we have been receiving for a number of years now. (The Sunset Mountain Coming) Next, and the thing that we are waiting for now, is the VOICE to call the dead up in a resurrection. But, also notice that he said there was a third part which will be the sounding of the TRUMPET, which calls the Bride up to meet the Lord in the air, to go to the Marriage Supper.

            All Born-Again Christians are now very, very interested in this third part, which will take place shortly after the resurrection. In July of 1996, we published a sermon called, “The Seven Feast Days of the Lord.” It was a study of the Seven Feast Days that God ordained for the Israelites to keep found in Lev. 23. In this sermon, we saw that God set a date on which each of the Seven Feast Days was to be held. We also saw where Brother Branham indicated (At least it seemed to this writer) that this Fifth Feast Day was a type of the Bride meeting the Lord for the LAMBS SUPPER in the sky.

            If you will read our sermon, “The Seven Feast Days of the Lord” found in book number one of the DeWitt Tabernacle Teaching Series, you will see that God set a specific date for each of the Seven Feast Days to be held. (You can read it in the scriptures in Lev. 23.) The great question is does the date set for the Fifth Feast Day actually correspond with the date on which the third stage of the Rapture will take place?

            Let me be quick to say that I do not know, but it is something to think about and study. Perhaps the revelation will continue as time passes. Is the Seventh Seal great? Yes, it is very great, and the Bride continues to watch and pray to see what her Bridegroom will reveal next about it. Amen!

            3. THE OPENING OF THE SEVENTH SEAL WAS THE COMING OF THE HEADSTONE TO CAP THE PYRAMID. It was the Stone cut out of the mountain with out hands. When the Lord Jesus Christ came on Sunset Mountain, He was the Headstone that the Prophet declared would come and cap the Pyramid. He had been rejected in the days of His Ministry 2000 years ago, by all except His Elect Bride, and today, when He came again as the Headstone to cap the Pyramid, He was rejected by all except His Bride.

            QUOTE: PREDESTINATED MYSTERY OF HIS WILL, PAGES 6-7, “The Pyramid never was capped…..why wasn’t the Capstone put on it, the Headstone, the top of it? Because He was rejected when He come. He was the rejected Stone. That’s right. BUT IT WILL BE CAPPED……then the coming of the Lord Jesus is so close at hand until the Spirit from way down in here….Justification, Sanctification, Baptism of the Holy Spirit, AND NOW, RIGHT INTO THE TIME OF THE COMING OF THE HEADSTONE. (He, Himself, the Word)……We got a ministry coming that’s just exactly like the Life of Christ….WHAT DOES THAT MINISTRY IDENTIFY? THE COMING OF THE LORD. (The Capstone)…..Look at the age coming now, right up to the Headstone. See what I mean? THE COMING OF THE LORD, THE MADE KNOWN.”  (End quote)

            Brother Branham preached that the Coming of the Headstone, the Rejected Stone, would be a Ministry in the earth, in our day, exactly like the Ministry Christ had 2000 years ago. It would be the Coming of the Stone cut out of the Mountain without hands.

            QUOTE: DANIELS SEVENTY WEEKS, PAGE 117-118, “But the true Church all over the world has shaped down to a place that there’s come a Ministry among them just exactly like the Ministry of Jesus Christ. Now, what they got? They got the thing in condition.” (End quote)

            QUOTE:  PAGE 118, “Now, what the next thing? This Rejected Stone to the Pyramid, cut out of the Mountain with out what? Without hands. God sent it. Do you see it? The Rejected One, the Rejected Stone is the Head of the….is the Head of the Capstone. AND THE VERY ONE THEY’VE REJECTED THROUGH THIS GENTILE AGE IS CHRIST……..And the Cap of the Pyramid WILL BE Christ COMING. Do you see it?..........You understand it now? Christ the Headstone, the Rejected Stone, the all-seeing Eye, coming exactly like the Bible said…..And Daniel said he watched this Gentile Age until the Stone come out of the Mountain that wasn’t cut with hands. They had never put a Capstone on that Pyramid.”

            CONT. QUOTE: “It wasn’t cut by man’s hands. It’s God’s Hands that cut the Stone. You see it? And what did it do? It hit the Image right smack in the feet (Daniel 2:34) and broke it to pieces, ground it into powder. Hallelujah! What happened at that time, the Coming of the Stone? Up went the Church (Bride) into Glory at the Rapture, cause it ended the Gentile Dispensation. God ended it up, THE COMING OF THE STONE.” (End quote)

            Can we see now that the Seventh Seal was the Coming of Christ on Sunset Mountain, the stone cut out of the Mountain without hands? He came as a SWORD in the hand of His Prophet, to speak the WORD and to reveal the WORD. He came as the CAPSTONE and now the Pyramid is complete in a spiritual sense. He came to destroy the Image, as Daniel explained to King Nebuchadnezzar. In other words, Christ the Word came in His Prophet AND DESTROYED ALL THE ANTI-Christ TEACHING that has come out of Rome and her harlot daughters. No longer is the Bride deceived by their creeds and dogmas. The Coming of the Stone destroyed all our preconceived ideas and took us back to the Word.

            4. The Seventh Seal was the coming of the SUPER SIGN. On November 29th, 1963, Brother Branham preached a sermon entitled, “The Super Sign.” In this sermon, he told us that there would be a SUPER SIGN given to the Church just before Rapture time, and this Super Sign would be “The Sign of Messiah.”

            QUOTE: THE SUPER SIGN, NOV. 29, 1963, SHREVEPORT, PAGE 22, “Brother and Sister, we are living in the days of super markets, super jets, super highways, super races, super everything else. AND THERE IS A SUPER SIGN. We’ve had the Sign of Religion. We’ve had the sign of getting together. We’ve had the Sign of Speaking in Tongues. We’ve had the Sign of healing the sick. We’ve had all these Signs. But yet, we find in the Bible that, THE LAST SIGN BEFORE THE PROMISED SON ARRIVED AGAIN (FOR RAPTURE), IT WAS A SUPER SIGN. Jesus said, ‘As it was then; before the promised Son arrives again, that SUPER SIGN would come on Earth again. I declare to you tonight, in the Name of Jesus Christ, IT’S ON EARTH NOW. NOT ONLY THAT, BUT IT’S RIGHT HERE AMONG US TONIGHT, the Holy Ghost. GOD’S SUPER SIGN, THE RESURRECTED JESUS CHRIST, it cannot fail. It’s an Eternal Sign. It can never be changed. Heavens and Earth will pass away, but that’ll never change. It’s an Eternal, Everlasting Sign, GOD MANIFESTED IN HUMAN FLESH. GOD MADE HIMSELF KNOWN IN HUMAN FLESH.” (End quote)

            What was this Everlasting, Eternal Sign that the Prophet spoke of? It was Christ back on Earth reading the thoughts of the people, just as He did in the days of His own ministry 2000 years ago. It was the SIGN OF MESSIAH!

            QUOTE: THE SUPER SIGN, PAGE 10, “Jesus said, ‘Search the Scriptures!’ When they seen He could discern the thoughts that was in their mind, and they called Him Beelzebub, He said, ‘Search the scriptures, they are the ones that testify of Me.’ The continuity of the scriptures running perfectly with the sign of the time! He was God’s SIGN OF THE TIME. He was the manifestation of the written Word, and also He could foretell what would happen, and they could not deny it. He was the Super Sign of the day. He certainly was.” (End quote)

            QUOTE: THE SUPER SIGN, PAGE 20, “Look at the track (Trail) of the Church. It has come up through Luther, Wesley, Pentecostals, Denominations. We’ve had revelations and all other kinds of things. We had speaking in tongues. We’ve had gifts of healing. We have everything manifested. But look, right at the end-time, before the burning and the destroying, the SUPER SIGN appears mysteriously, right on the scene again before us, Amen, God, Himself. Not a man, but God made manifest. A SUPER SIGN, an Everlasting Sign, an Eternal sign, a Super Sign, God manifested in the flesh (Of a Prophet). Same sign that His Son did. His Super Son promised the same at the end, “As it was in the days of Sodom, so shall it be at the coming of the Son of Man.” (End quote) THE SUPER SIGN SHALL RETURN!

            And so, the Super Sign was the return of the Lord Jesus Christ in His Prophet, reading the thoughts of the people, just as He had done 2000 years ago. Through His Prophet, Jesus gave the SIGN that He was back on Earth with a Message to prepare His Bride for Rapture. The Seventh Seal was the Coming of the Lord, who then proved that it was He, Himself, by showing forth the Super Sign, the SIGN OF MESSIAH.

            In conclusion, we will simply pray that the Gracious Lord will continue to bless us with any future revelations that we need, as well as correct us concerning anything that we may have wrong so far, and we ask these things in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen!
