Where is the Angel who revealed the Revelation to John today?

(…) And now, let’s see what will be happening in this end time. On page 22 of the book of Quotations it says, in paragraph 176, which is an excerpt from “Questions and Answers from the book of Hebrews #3,” it says:

“And there’s them two witnesses. And when they tormented the church, or the world, by their preaching (that is, preaching the divine judgments that are to come); and receiving back the Jews, and bringing them back to repentance, bringing them back to believe on… When they see Jesus coming for the Bride, they’ll say, ‘Lo, this is our God Who we waited on. That’s Him!’ But He’s not coming for them; He come for His Bride. And His Bride…”

So how is He coming for His Bride? He comes as the Mighty Angel that descends from Heaven; and He comes veiling Himself and revealing Himself in human flesh in His Angel Messenger in the Last Day, and manifesting Himself through His Angel Messenger, and making known to us all these things which must happen soon, in this end time; and calling and gathering together the elect, and preparing us to be transformed and raptured, to be adopted.

And when Christ adopts His Angel, and then He will also adopt all of us, the Hebrew people will see that manifestation; because when the Angel of Jesus Christ is adopted, then great wonders and miracles will happen. And the Tent Vision will be fulfilled literally at that time, with great wonders and miracles; and it will shake the whole world, and the Hebrew people also, and the whole Christianity. Because the Third Pull, which is the stage of the fulfillment of the Tent Vision, which is the stage of the fulfillment of the Seventh Seal, of the Second Coming of Christ, pertains to the Last Day, when we are adopted by Christ and obtain our new body.

 

BOOK OF THE AGES

The Patmos Vision – Pages 53-54

Rev. William M. Branham

How deeply moving and inspiring was the appearing of Jesus to John, who was in exile for the cause of the Word, and behold, the Living WORD now stands before him. What an illuminating vision, for every descriptive attribute has a significance. What a revelation of His glorious Being.

1. His Hair as White as Snow

John first notices and mentions the whiteness of His hair. It was white, and as bright as snow. This was not because of His age. Oh, no. The brilliantly white hair does not signify age but experience, maturity, and wisdom. The Eternal One does not age. What is time to God? Time means little to God, but wisdom means much. It is as when Solomon called to God for wisdom to judge the people of Israel. Now He is coming, the Judge of all the earth. He will be crowned with wisdom. That is what the white and glistening hair signifies. (…)

There it is. Daniel saw Him with that white hair. He was the Judge opening the books and judging out of them. Daniel saw Him coming in clouds. That is exactly what John saw. They both saw Him exactly the same. They saw the Judge with His judgment girdle over His shoulders, standing pure and holy, full of wisdom, fully qualified to judge the world in righteousness. Hallelujah. Even the world understands this symbology, for in ancient times the judge would appear and convene court, dressed in a white wig and a long robe that signified his complete authority (head to foot robe) to mete out justice.

The restoration of all things

Therefore, the physical part belongs to the Church of the Lord of the time of the restoration of all things. Saint Paul will not appear building a giant tent to be fulfilled there; neither the second angel messenger, nor the third, nor the fourth, nor the fifth. Luther is not going to appear building a big tent with his group, to say: “That is what the Reverend William Branham saw.” Luther’s time has already passed. The Reverend William Branham was looking to the future. He wasn’t looking back in his time, he was looking into the future. He was already in another dimension; and he saw activities taking place; and they were not his activities, nor was it his tent either. He saw things happening and miracles happening, and yet he was not ministering. But the Angel told him that he was going to be there.

If the seven angels of the seven ages came and met him… Or would it be that the seven angels of the seven churches came to meet the one who was different?

And he took him up to where he was with the other angels, for this meeting which —as a result— would have a major effect on the East, where he went to preach the Seals; which indicates that, for the Last Day, what will happen in the West will have a major impact on the East, on Israel.

The Reverend William Branham says that the Mighty Angel that descends from Heaven is the Messenger to Israel. Then, who is it? The Holy Spirit, Christ in His heavenly body, the Angel of the Covenant. But He says: “But He comes for His Church, for His Bride.” And He says that when they, the Jews, see Him coming for His Church, they will say: “This is the one we are waiting for.”

So, where are they going to see Him manifested? In the midst of the Church. That is in the Third Pull that the Reverend William Branham saw. That is why he was forbidden to go to Israel, because it wasn’t time yet. It wasn’t the time in the seventh age. Nor was the breach between the seventh age and the Age of the Cornerstone the time to go to Israel.

The time for Israel is in the Age of the Cornerstone, in the time or times for the restoration of all things, for the restoration of Israel; for Israel to be restored with the twelve tribes, for the Kingdom of David or Kingdom of God to be restored on Earth, in Israel, for the Throne of David with a King over Israel and over all nations to be restored.

 

BOOK OF THE SEALS

The Seventh Seal – Pages 555-556

Rev. William M. Branham

249 Now, why? Let us prove it. Why? It is the secret that no one knows about. John was forbidding to write about It, even—even write a symbol about It. Why? This is why there was no active in—activity in Heaven: it might give away the secret. Do you see it now?

250 If It’s so great, It must be included, because It’s got to happen. But when the Seven Thunders…

251 Now notice. When the seven Angels come forth to sound their Trumpets, there was one thunder. When Israel was gathered, there was a trumpet. “When time shall be no more,” the last trumpet, one thunder.

252 But here is Seven straight Thunders, right in a row: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, that perfect number. Seven Thunders in a row, uttered, not…making just—just one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, straight. Then, Heavens couldn’t write That. Heavens can’t know about It, nothing else, because there’s nothing to go on. It was a relaxing time. It was so great, till, It was kept secret from the Angels.

253 Now, why? If Satan should get a hold of It, he might do great damage. There is one thing he don’t know. Now, he can interpret anything he wants to, and impersonate any kind of a gift, (I hope you’re learning), but he can’t know This. It’s not even written in the Word. It’s a total secret.

254 The Angels, everything, shut up. If they made one move, it might give something away, so they just shut up, quit harping. Everything stopped.

255 Seven, God’s perfect number. Seven, just right down the row. Seven Thunders uttered straight together, like they were spelling out something. Notice, at that time, John started to write It. He said, “Don’t write It.”

256 Jesus never spoke of It. John couldn’t write It. Angels know nothing about It. What is It? It’s the thing that, Jesus said, “Even the Angels of Heaven didn’t know” nothing about It. See? See? He didn’t know It, Himself. Said, “Only God” would know It.

257 But He told us, when we “begin seeing these signs coming up.” Now you getting somewhere? All right. Notice, we “begin seeing these signs coming up.” See?

The Breach – Pages 90-991

Rev. William M. Branham

153 Now, “And a strong angel…” Now verse 2. …the strong angel, with a loud voice, proclaiming, Who is worthy…(Worthy for what?) Who is worthy to take that book,…

154 Now we find out. Where is the Book at now? To Its original Owner, because It has been forfeited by a son, the first son of God, in a human race. And when he forfeit his rights, to listen to Satan, he give up…What did he do? He accepted Satan’s wisdom instead of God’s Word. Now, couldn’t we stop here a while! Sons of God will take a seminary’s idea about It, instead of the Word of God. See, same thing Adam did, forfeited his rights. And when it did, it went right straight back. Can’t you see where those ages has been? See? Went right straight back to the original holder.

155 And John, in the Spirit, standing up here in Heaven. He’s just been lifted up now, from the church ages, see, saw the church ages. And then he was taken up, in the 4th chapter. He said, “Come up higher. I’m going to show you things that will come.”

156 And he saw One sitting upon the Throne, with this Book in His hand, in His right hand. Think of it, now. And, then, in this Book was a title deed to redemption, and It was sealed with Seven Seals.

157 And then an Angel came forth, a strong Angel, proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who was worthy to open the Book; to take the Book? Who was able to open the Seals? Who was able to open this Book?” See, the Angel asked it. John saw it. And He said, “Now, who is worthy? Let Him…” Oh, my! Maybe I’m just feeling this, this a way. “But let Him,” said the Angel, “let Him…” Here is the Book of Redemption! Here is the plan of redemption! Here is the only way you’ll ever be redeemed, for here is the title deed to redemption of the whole heavens and earth! “Let Him come forward, if He will.” Oh, my! “Now speak, or forever hold His peace. Let Him come forward and claim this Book. Who is worthy to do it?”

158 And John said: There was no man in heaven found worthy; no man on earth found worthy; no man beneath the earth, that ever lived and died, was found worthy. No man was found worthy.

159 The Angel’s call was a call for the Kinsman Redeemer to appear. God said, “I have a law; a Kinsman Redeemer can—can be a substitute. Where is that Kinsman Redeemer? Who is able to take It?”

160 And it come from Adam, all the way down through all the apostles, and prophets, and everything else, and nobody was found. Now, what about that? “Nobody in Heaven, nobody on earth, nobody that ever lived.” Elijah was standing there. Moses was standing there. All the apostles were standing there, or—or all the ones that had died; all the holy men, Job, the sages. Every one was standing there, and nobody was worthy even to look at the Book, let alone take It and break the Seals.

161 Now where is the pope and all these come in at? Where is your bishop? Where is our worthiness? We’re nothing. That’s right.

 

BOOK OF THE SEALS

The Fourth Seal – Page 281

Rev. William M. Branham

36 But we’re promised that It would be revealed. And now there is Seven Seals that this Book is sealed with. And those Seven Seals now…

37 And then after these Seven Seals are completed, we find, in Revelation 10, there was seven mysterious Thunders that John was commissioned to write, but then forbidden to write those. And at the time of those Thunders, we find Christ, or, “The Angel come down with a rainbow, and put His feet on the land and sea, and swore that time had run out, at that time.”

38 And then we find—find out, that in the revealing of the Seals, that the—the Lamb had left His mediatorial work as an Intercessor, and had come forth now to claim His rights, all that He had redeemed by His death.

 

THE CHURCH MAKING HISTORY IN ITS TRAJECTORY

(Ministers’ Meeting)

And now, we can see that John wanted to worship the Angel who showed him all these things; and we have this Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ sent by Jesus Christ, with the revelation of Jesus Christ, to give John the apocalyptic revelation, which contains all the things that are to happen.

That is why that is a prophetic book; that is why it says: “Blessed is he that keepeth the words of the prophecy of this book,” because it’s a prophetic book; the prophecy – the words of the prophecy of this book.

In other words, they are prophetic words contained in this book, which God gave through the Archangel Gabriel to John. It says Revelation, chapter 1, verse 1 to 3:

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

Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.

Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.”

Here are the spoken words: “Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy.” See? It’s a prophetic book given by the Archangel Gabriel to the apostle Saint John; because that Angel Gabriel or Archangel Gabriel (which means ‘Man of God’), we find that he is the one who has access to the Book of Truth; that is why he said to Daniel: “I will show you (the Archangel Gabriel said to Daniel)… I will show you the things that are in the Book of Truth.”

And now, we find here, in Revelation, the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ revealing to John the apostle the things that are going to happen during all that period of time of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ; all these things are contained here in symbols, so that they remain there as prophetic words: The words of the prophecy of this Book.

And now, with that prophetic revelation given to John the apostle, you see, we find that the history of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, and everything that will revolve around the Dispensation of Grace, and then it will go on to the Dispensation of the Kingdom, everything is contained in the prophetic words of Revelation.

The First Seal – Page 139

Rev. William M. Branham

[166] But, think now, he wrote This.

167 But when he started to write those other, Seven Thunders, He said, “Don’t write It.” He had been commissioned to write everything he seen. But when these Seven Thunders, over in Revelation 10, uttered, He said, “Don’t write Them, at all.” They are 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. See?

168 We’ve just moved through everything that we know of, through all the dispensations. We’ve watched everything. We seen the mysteries of God. We seen the appearing of the—of the great gathering together of the Bride in the last days. But, yet, there is something in There that we just can’t lighten ourself with. There is something other.

169 But I imagine, when them mysteries begins to come forth, God said, “Hold It back now. Wait a minute. I’ll reveal It in that day. Don’t write It, at all, John, ’cause they’ll stagger over It. Just—just let it go, see. But I’ll reveal It in that day when it has need to be done.”
