[208] So, here come the Lamb, now. His intercessory days is over, the mediatorial days.

209 That’s when this Angel is going to stand there. You wait till we get in the Seals. “And time shall be no more.” That’s right. That “half hour of silence.” Watch what takes place in that half hour of silence, when that Seventh Seal, next Sunday night, the Lord willing.

248 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. And then you…Let’s go over that, first. Here is the revelation, to begin what I want to tell you, what It is. What happens, is that…Those Seven Thunders that he heard thunder, and was forbidden to write; that’s what the mystery is, laying behind those Seven consecutive Thunders rolling out.

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.”

391 Now, now, do you notice? On the opening of this Seventh Seal, it’s also in a threefold mystery. This one, I have…will speak and have spoke, that it is the mystery of the Seven Thunders. The Seven Thunders in Heaven will unfold this mystery. It’ll be right at the Coming of Christ, because Christ said no one knew when He would return.

392 Did you notice, when the Jews asked Him that? Know… When we compared the Scripture here with Matthew 24, with the six Seals, the Seventh Seal was left out. Because, you see, Christ said, “Only God Himself knowed; not even the Angels.” No wonder, It wasn’t even written. You see, they hushed; nothing take place then. Angels don’t know It. Nobody knows when He is coming.

393 But there’ll be a—there’ll be a—a Seven Voices, of these Thunders, that will reveal the great revelation at that time.

1057 – “It’s tightening. And then when that time comes, and the press comes to a place to where you’re pressed out, then watch what I’m fixing to tell you in a few minutes. Watch the Third Pull then, see, and it’ll be absolutely to the total lost, but it—it will be for the Bride and the Church.”

[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!

306 Now do you see it, the Truth of God’s vision, the seven Angels bringing me from the west? They were coming from the west, coming back east, bringing here for this Message tonight. Oh, my!

307 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 Angels being This, being the Message that was coming forth, them Angels bringing me back here for That? See?

308 Remember, the seventh Messenger was…The seven Messengers was…The noted One to me, the seventh Angel, It seemed more to me than any. Now, see, they were standing like this. Now, we just want you to notice. And I was standing here, and I was watching those other…

309 See, one, first bunch, of little birds, feathers all beat down. You remember them? And they all flew eastward. And the second bunch, were brighter, bigger birds, looked like doves, pointed wings. They flew eastward. First Pull, Second Pull, then the next was Angels.

 

THE SEVENTH SEAL AND

THE INTRODUCTION TO THE MILLENNIUM

And that Angel has to come to Earth manifested in human flesh in the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ, to speak through him, to anoint His Angel Messenger and speak through him, and make known all these things that must happen soon; in other words, to speak through His Angel Messenger with that Great Voice of Trumpet of the Gospel of the Kingdom.

Therefore, from 1963 and on, the ministry of that Angel in some way had to begin; but its beginning, the beginning of the Seventh Seal, our brother Branham says that it would be a complete secret. Nobody would realize the beginning of the Seventh Seal, the beginning of the ministry of that Angel that was different from the rest, through the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Therefore, the ministry of the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ had to begin around 1963; and therefore, the birth of that Angel in the Kingdom of the Heavens, in the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ (in other words, that new birth), had to occur before the beginning of His ministry. In other words, before 1963 that Angel had to be manifested in the House of God, in the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, as a member of the Mystical Body of Christ born in the House of God, in the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, as a son of God; because that is the House of the sons and daughters of God.

And now you see how the ministry of that Angel, which was different from the rest, had to begin in a secret way and that ministry had to grow, and to fulfill every divine promise.

Our brother Branham says about the Coming of the Son of Man, that at the time he was living the time of the Coming of the Son of Man, he was living in the time for the fulfillment of these promises.

“But when the Seventh Seal begins, it will be a complete secret,” our brother Branham said on page 472 of the book of The Seals.1

Just as the First Coming of Christ, the Coming of the Angel of the Covenant in human flesh, was a secret among the Hebrew people: His birth through the virgin Mary there in Bethlehem of Judea; the growth of the child Jesus was a secret, the stage as a child was a secret, the stage as a young man was a secret; and then, when He becomes an adult and is almost 30 years old His ministry begins, and the mystery of the First Coming of Christ is opened to the sons and daughters of God, to the elect of God, among the Hebrew people.

But the people listening to the preaching of Christ were thinking that Jesus was making Himself God, and they didn’t understand that it was the Coming of the Messiah, the Coming of the Almighty God, of the Angel of the Covenant, of the Word manifested in human flesh.

He was approximately 30 years in the midst of the Hebrew people before revealing Himself, before manifesting Himself and beginning His ministry; and they didn’t realize who was in their midst.

Then, you see, He began His ministry of three and a half years; and at the end of His ministry He accomplished the Redemption with His death on Calvary’s Cross, shedding His Blood to cleanse us from all sin. That was the end of His ministry in the physical body before He died, resurrected and was taken to Heaven.

With His death that ministry came to an end, producing our redemption; because He came as the Lamb of God to take away the sin of the world in His Work of Redemption.

For this end time, how long will the Angel who was different from the rest be manifested on Earth without people being aware of His presence on Earth, in the midst of His Church, making known to us all these things that must happen soon, in the fulfillment of the Seventh Seal being manifested?

But “to you it is granted to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of God,” the mysteries of the Second Coming of Christ as Lion of the tribe of Judah, as King of kings and Lord of lords in His Reclaiming Work. To you it is granted to know the mystery of the Coming of the Angel who was different from the rest, veiling Himself in human flesh in His Angel Messenger and revealing Himself through His Angel Messenger, and making known to us all these things that must soon come to pass; and thus opening to us the mystery of the Seventh Seal, the mystery of the Angel who was different from the rest.
