The Fifth Seal – Pages 376-379

382 But, however, standing there, I felt up, and I had my hair again. My! I was young. And these, all these, young! And I thought, “Well, isn’t this strange! Here they are.” And they was all run…

383 And I looked, coming, and I—I seen Hope coming. She looked… You know, she died at twenty-two. She was still just as pretty as ever. Many of you remember her; them big dark eyes. She was German. Her black hair hanging down her back. I thought, “Now, when she gets here, she’ll say—she’ll say, ‘Bill.’ I know she will. I know she’ll say, ‘Bill,’ when she gets here.”

384 I was watching. And every one of these women coming and hugged me, saying, “Oh, precious brother, we’re so glad to see you!” And I thought…Every one dressed just alike, but they had their hair different, you know, red hair, and black hair, and blond hair. And—and they was coming by, but they was all young.

385 And when she got to me, I thought, “I’m just going to see what she says.”

386 And she looked up at me, and she said, “Oh, our precious brother!” She hugged me, and she just went on. Some other woman come, hugged me, next.

387 And I heard a noise. And looked over this way, and here come a bunch of men, young fellows, all in age about twenty. They had dark hair, and blond hair. And they all had white robes on, and barefooted. And they run to me and begin to hugging me, hollering, “Precious brother!”

388 I thought. And I turned back around, and there I was, still laying there. And I thought, “Well, now, this is strange.”

389 And just then a Voice went to talking to me. I never did see the Voice. It said, “You have been gathered, you—you have been gathered to your people.” And then some men picked me up, set me way up, on a big high thing like this. I said, “Why did you do that?” Said, “In earth you was a leader.” And I said, “Well, I—I don’t understand this.”

390 And that Voice talking to me. I never could see the Voice. Now, It was just above me, talking to me.

391 I said, “Well, if I—if I have passed on, I want to see Jesus.” I said, “I…He was so…He was all my life. I want to see Him.” And so He said, “You can’t see Him now. He is still higher.”

392 See, it was below the altar, yet, see, the sixth place, where men go, see; not the seventh, where God is, seventh dimension. The sixth!

393 And they were—and they were all there, and they was passing by. And I said…Looked like there were actually millions of them. I never seen them…And, when I sat there, these women and men still running by and hugging me, calling me “brother.” And I sat there.

394 And then that Voice said, “You’ve been gathered to your people, like Jacob was gathered to his people.” I said, “All these, my people? Are all these Branhams?” He said, “No. They’re your converts to Christ.”

395 I looked around. And there was a real pretty woman run up. She looked just about the same. She threw her arm around me, and she said, “Oh, my precious brother!” She looked at me.

396 I thought, “My! She looked like an Angel.” And she passed by. And that Voice said, “Didn’t you recognize her?” I said, “No, I didn’t recognize.”

397 Said, “You led her to Christ when she was past ninety.” Said, “You know why she thinks so much of you?” I said, “That pretty girl was past ninety?”

398 “Yeah.” Said, “She can never change no more now.” Said, “That’s the reason she is saying, ‘Precious brother.’”

399 I thought, “Oh, my! And I was afraid of this? Why, these people are real.” They, they wasn’t going anywhere. They wasn’t tired, being There. And I said, “Well, why can’t I see Jesus?”

400 Said, “Well, now, He will—He will come someday. And He’ll come to you, first, and then you’ll be judged.” Said, “These people are your converts that you have led.”

401 And I said, “You mean, by being a leader, that I…that He’ll judge me?” Said, “Yes.”

402 And I said, “Does every leader have to be judged like that?” Said, “Yes.” I said, “What about Paul?” He said, “He’ll have to be judged with his.”

403 “Well,” I said, “if his group goes in, so will mine, ’cause I’ve preached exactly the same Word.” That’s it. I said, “Where he baptized in Jesus’ Name, I did, too. I preached…”

404 And millions screamed out, all at once, said, “We’re resting on That!”

405 And I thought, “My! If I had only knew this before I come here, I would make people come here. They can’t afford to miss this. Why, looky here!” And then…

406 And He said, “Now, someday He’ll come, and then… Now, in here, we neither eat, drink, or sleep. We’re just all one.”

407 Well, it isn’t perfect; it’s beyond perfect. It’s not sublime; it’s beyond sublime. There is no name can…You can’t think… There ain’t no words in the vocabulary to say it. You’ve just arrived, that’s all.

408 And I thought, “Well, this, this would be perfect. And then what are we going to do next?”

409 Said, “Then, when Jesus comes, and we’re…and He judges you, or for your ministry, then we go back to earth and take up bodies.” Well, I—I never thought about it then. That’s exactly the Scripture. Said, “Then we go back to earth and take up bodies, then we eat. We don’t eat here, neither do we sleep.” Said, “We eat down there, but we go back to the earth.”

410 I thought, “My, isn’t this wonderful! Oh, my! And I was afraid of it. Why was I afraid of dying, to come to this? Well, this is perfection, plus perfection, plus perfection. Oh, this is wonderful!”

411 See, we was right under the altar. See? That was it, see, right under the altar, waiting for the Coming, see, for Him to go get the ones that was sleeping in the…the—the bodies sleeping in the dust, to raise us again; come by, raise us up.

412 Like Jesus come through paradise, and brought up Abraham, Isaac, and all them, you know, was waiting the first resurrection. They entered into the city and appeared to many.

413 It’s perfectly Scriptural. The vision was that, or whatever it was, it was perfectly Scriptural.

 

THE LORD JESUS CHRIST: THE I AM

Now, when the rich man died, it doesn’t say that the angels of God took him to Paradise; rather it says that the rich man found himself in hell. So he was taken by the fallen angels, who fell with the devil, who are found in the fifth dimension, which is hell; that is where they took the rich man. But Lazarus the beggar, the angels of God (angels that have not fallen) took him to Paradise.

That is why it is necessary for every human being to ensure his departure from this Earth, and to know who will take him when his days here on Earth are over: because the angels of God will take him to Paradise, or the fallen angels, who fell with the devil, with Luzbel, will then take him to hell, to the fifth dimension.

That is why every human being has to be prepared for the day of his departure. And if he will not depart, then he has to be prepared for the day of his transformation; because a transformation will come for the elect of God at the end of time.

So for one thing or the other, we have to be prepared.
