The Trial

Tampa, FL, 4-19-1964

Rev. William M. Branham

126 – “Now, why wasn’t He recognized as Son of man? The Son of man was the spiritual revelation, a prophet. Son of man means ‘prophet.’

Now if you’ll turn over in your Bibles to Ezekiel, the 2nd chapter and the 1st verse, you’ll find out that Ezekiel was the prophet, the Word of God for that day. And Jehovah Himself called him the son of man. Jehovah called him a man, the son of man, the same as Jesus revealed Himself as Son of man. What was it? The promised Word of that hour being made manifest, same God! God of Ezekiel’s time, God of Jesus’ time, Son of man! He was not at that time…

He was the Son of man because He had come to reveal Himself to Israel as a Prophet, and they rejected it. And that was the prophecy that they should receive Him in, in the name of the Son of man, a Prophet, because it was according to the Word. Deuteronomy 18:15, ‘The Lord your God shall raise up a Prophet likened unto me.’ And when He come, He identified Himself in His ministry as a man, not a Son of God, Son of man! God is a Spirit. And He revealed Himself as Son of man, what He claimed to be. And they was blinded and couldn’t see it.

But now unto the Gentiles He reveals Hisself, and now the Son of God which is the Holy Ghost.

(…) The church now has served the term through the church age, in the baptism of the Holy Ghost. But Jesus said here, to make Malachi 4 and the rest of these Scriptures real to you, see, that ‘In the last days, just before the Coming, the world setting will be like the Sodom, and the Son of man will reveal Hisself as the Son of man like He did in the days of Sodom.’

Blind prosecutor, can’t you see that? His Words are true. Not nail scars and prints and thorns.

It’s the Son of God impersonated in His Church, as Son of man. It has to fulfill Malachi 4 and the rest of the Scriptures.

(…) Son of man revealed then as a Prophet. Son of David, the King. And now the Son of God to the church age, as, God isn’t man, God is a Spirit, and the Spirit’s Son is the Holy Ghost, which is revealing the church age. But promised here, ‘In the last days, that the Son of man would be revealed’!”

Events made clear by prophecy

Jeffersonville, IN, 8-1-1965

Rev. William M. Branham

1399 – “God does His Own choosing, by predestination, chose the prophets for every age. Notice it. He fixes the nature of that prophet to fit that age. See, He fits his style, whatever he does. He fits him whether he’s educated or not educated. He fits the gifts, the manner that he’ll preach in, the gifts he’ll have. And the Message for that certain age, God’s predestinated that certain thing to happen and there’s not another thing can take its place. Care what it is, how many man-made achievements, nothing can take its place. He predestinated the man, maybe a ignorant man. He might have predestinated him another kind of a man. Whatever he is, He gives him his class, his—his gift, give him his nature, his style, and whatever it is, how he expresses himself, and whatever he does. He makes the man of the hour to catch the people of the hour. Right. He does it.”

The Seventh Seal – Page 534

Rev. William M. Branham

[81] …between the Sixth and Seventh Seal, is the calling out of Israel.

82 Now, I have many fine Jehovah Witness friends sitting here, that’s all… or have been. Maybe some of them is still Jehovah Witness. But they’ve always applied, Mr. Russell did, this hundred and forty-four thousand, to being the supernatural Bride of Christ. See? They… It’s not.

83 It has nothing to do in the church age, at all. They’re absolutely Israel. Now, we’re going to read in a few minutes. Now, this interval, between the Sixth…the Seals, is a calling and sealing of the hundred and forty-four thousand Jews, called in the Tribulation period, after the Church is gone. See? It has nothing to do with the church age, at all. Oh, is called, and perfectly in harmony with the Scripture. Daniel’s last three and a half weeks, allotted to Daniel’s “people,” see, not the Gentiles. To Daniel’s “people,” and Daniel was a Jew!

84 Now notice, Israel, Israel believes only her prophets, and, after they are vindicated.

The Masterpiece

Jeffersonville, IN, 5-7-1964

Rev. William M. Branham

1134 – “Now, for nearly two thousand years, God has been again making Him a Masterpiece. Because, He struck Adam to get a ma-… a piece off of him, part of him, a rib to make a wife for him. And now that perfect Masterpiece that He struck at Calvary, He got a piece off of Him. It’s just the New Testament, that’s all. He fulfilled the Old Testament. Now it’s the New Testament, another piece to be fulfilled. See, the New and Old is husband and wife. See? And it taken the New to fore-… The Old to foreshow the New; Christ come, the Masterpiece, to fulfill that. Now His Bride will fulfill everything that’s in the New Testament. Another Masterpiece is in making. As it taken Him four thousand years to make this Masterpiece; now He’s been, for nearly two thousand years making another Masterpiece, a Bride for Christ, another Masterpiece. In so doing it, He does it by His never-changing method, the same way He made the Masterpiece; His Word. That’s the way He makes His Masterpieces, because He can only be a perfect Masterpiece when It’s the perfect Word.”

The Seventh Seal – Pages 574-575

Rev. William M. Branham

397 Now, we have, in the completion here now, by the grace of God, all the mysteries of the six Seals that’s been sealed up, and we understand and know here that the Seventh Seal is not to be known to the public.

398 Now, His Coming, at the hour of His Coming, when the destruction of the earth, you know. He said there, “What will be the sign of the coming of the end of the world?” In Matthew 24, there where they asked Him that question. He went down to that. He told about Israel being gathered as a nation, in the 31st verse, of Matthew 24:31. But then He started off on parables, see. Then you see the… “Learn a parable of the fig tree. When you see it putting forth its buds, why, you know spring is nigh. And then when you see this coming to pass, then know the time is nigh.” See, Israel gathering in its own homeland. But, you notice, He omitted the revelation of this Seventh Seal.

399 And here, when the Seventh Seal, when He opened It, He also omitted It again, see. So we see that It is a complete mystery, therefore the hour is not yet for the mystery to be known. Therefore, we’re this far, and the rest of It will be known right around about the time that Jesus appears on earth again, for His Bride, or whatever takes place at that time.

The Mystery of the Seventh Dispensation

(Ministers’ meeting)

Dr. William Soto Santiago

Thursday, May 16, 2002

Medellin, Colombia

Now, notice what that means under the Third Pull. All these blessings for the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ come, and the power of God in all His fullness comes under the Third Pull.

What was seen in part in the Reverend William Branham, regarding the manifestation of God’s power in all His fullness, will come manifested in all His fullness.

Page 119 of the book of Quotations. There he tells us that when the squeeze comes, then what we have seen in part manifested, of God’s power in all His fullness (but in part), now he says that it will fully come; and that will be a time when it will come in a consecutive way.

And that will give fulfillment to what? To the Tent Vision. That is where the great miracles and wonders will be seen. But meanwhile, we are receiving the revelation of the Seventh Seal, the revelation that the Seven Thunders, the Voice of Christ, gives us in this end time; the revelation of the mystery of the Seventh Seal for the seventh dispensation, where an intertwining is made with the Dispensation of Grace, and so the mystery of the seventh dispensation is being opened for the elect of God in the Mystical Body of the Lord Jesus Christ.

There is a new dispensational Message, a new dispensational prophet, a people to enter into a new dispensation, and great promises and blessings in that new dispensation, in the mystery of the seventh dispensation. The transformation of our bodies pertains to the seventh dispensation, and the rapture of the Church as well.

All that is within the seventh dispensation in this dispensational intertwining. Notice that it will be after Christ rises from the Throne of the Father, when He has already finished His Work of Intercession, that the resurrection of the dead in Christ will come and our transformation will come, and the 30 or 40 days of full manifestation of God in His Church, and then the rapture or catching away of God’s elect. And that already corresponds to the seventh dispensation, that is why it is in the mystery of the seventh dispensation, under the Message of the seventh dispensation and under the mystery of the Seventh Seal, which is the Second Coming of Christ, and under the mystery of the Angel who has the Seventh Seal.

God hiding Himself in simplicity… – Pages 19-20

Rev. William M. Branham

[113] …Many miss Him by the way He reveals Himself.

114 Now, men has their own ideas of what God ought to be and what God is going to do. And as I have made the old statement many times, that, man still remains man. Man is always giving God praise for what He did do, and always looking forward to what He will do, and ignoring what He is doing. See? See? That’s the way they miss it. They look back and see what a great thing He done, but they fail to see what a simple thing He used, to do it with. See? And then they look forward and see a great thing coming, that’s going to happen, and, nine times out of ten, it’s already happening right around them. And it’s so simple that they don’t know it.

God hiding Himself in simplicity… – Pages 19-20

Rev. William M. Branham

[305] …The other day, last Sunday, a week ago today, when I was preaching on “Be humble! Be humble! Remember, God deals in little things.” I didn’t realize what it really was talking about. And now I see it. It is in such a humble way! You would think that something like that would be revealed to the Vatican or… But It comes just like John the Baptist. It comes like the birth of our Lord, in a stable. Glory to God! So help me, the hour is at hand! Amen! We’re here. Oh, my!
