The Seven Seals  by William M. Branham

Chapter 8: The Sixth Seal 63-0323 (Continued)

Day 84


6  And there was so many that's wrote in that group of questionnaires last, or questions last night, was more or less not as much as questions, it was wanting to have a healing service anyhow, wanted to stay an extra day to have a—to have healing service on a Monday. So I—I—I would—could… I actually could do it if that was the—the will of the people that they would do that. You could think it over, let me know, but if you just want to stay and have—pray for the sick, because I've designated all this time completely to these Seals and just kept myself away for the Seals. So you can think it over and pray over it, and then let me know.
8  And I'll, if the Lord willing, I can… My next appointment is at Albuquerque, New Mexico, and that'll be a few days yet, and I have to go home for some business on making another convention ready in Arizona. And so then if it be the will of the Lord, you pray over it and I'll do the same, and then we'll know more about it a little later. And I just detect now… You see… You go to talking about sickness, there it comes. See? See this lady setting right here, if something don't help her, she ain't going to stay here but a little bit. So then, see, we—we just pray that God will… That's what you're here for. Come way away… So see, the—the Holy Spirit knows just everything (You see?), so He… But see, I've tried to designate this time for these Seals 'cause we set it for that. You see? But if there's a…
11  How many is sick is here anyhow that come to be prayed for? Let's see your hands, all around everywhere. Oh, my. Well, how many would think that that would be right, the will of the Lord to stay and have a—take Monday night just pray for the sick, have a healing service Monday night? Would you like to do that? Could you do it? Well, Lord willing, we'll do it then. See? We'll—we'll have prayer service for the sick Wednesday, or Sunday night, or Monday night and pray for the sick. Now, I hope that don't interrupt that group that I'm going back with, going back to Arizona. Brother Norman, is he here anywhere? Does that interrupt your program, Brother Norman, anything? Brother Fred and the rest of you, is that all right? See? That's okay. All right, then the Lord willing, Monday night we pray for the sick. Just one night set aside for that altogether, just praying for the sick. Now, won't be any more of the Seals. The Lord has opened these Seals, and then we pray for the sick Monday night.
14  Now… Oh, I been really enjoying this tremendously, of serving the Lord under these… Have you enjoyed this…? Now, we are now, speaking from the Fifth Seal—or the Sixth Seal, rather, and that takes down now from the—the 12th verse of the 6th chapter down to the 17th. It's one of the long Seals, that a quite a bit of things happen here.
16  And now the a… Tell a little review of last night, kindly back up a little each time. And say, I—I want to say something too. I found in that box four or five very important things to me. I was told that… And I certainly want to apologize… Is the tapes on? Tape's on? I want to apologize to my minister brethren and to you people here. They say the other night when I was speaking of—of Elijah, that hour of—when they was… He thought he was the only one was going to be in the rapture, or he—only one going to be saved; and I said seven hundred instead of seven thousand. Is that right? Well, I'm sure sorry of that, folks. I—I—I knowed better than that. It was just simply a mumble of speech, because I knowed it was seven thousand. I just didn't say it right. I—I… And I—I thank you and I… That means that…
18  I'm glad that you are watching what I say, and you see then, that's… 'Cause it's—it's—it's seven thousand. I got two or three notes on it. It said, "Brother Branham, I believe you were mistaken," It said, "Wasn't there seven thousand instead of seven hundred?" I thought, "Surely I didn't say seven hundred." See? That a… And then I… Billy… And then first thing you know, I picked up another note and it said, "Brother Branham, you—I believe you said seven hundred." And one person said, "Brother Branham, was that a spiritual vision that—that there's—there's just going to be a type and you're typing it with the seven…" It puts people on edge when you go to thinking these things (See?), and it's enough to. It puts me on the edge. Something happened today when this Seal was revealed, till I had to walk completely out in the yard, just walk around out in the yard a little while. That's right. It just simply almost took my breath right away from me. See? So it's all… A tension, oh, my… See? And another thing (See?), you're laying right on to what I say, and God's going to hold me responsible for what I tell you. See? And so I—I must absolutely be as sure as all sure can be sure (See?), of—of these things, because this is a—a tremendous time that we're living in now.
24  I was thinking about the healing service for Monday night. That wouldn't interfere with you, Brother Neville, or anything? Precious Brother Neville, I tell you what. They just—they just made one, I think, then lost the pattern. It's a… He certainly has been a—a real chum and friend to me; I'll tell you. The Tabernacle now built and got the Sunday school rooms and everything ready and in order here. And some of you people that's around here, right in Jeffersonville, want to come to the church, you got a nice place and a place to come—Sunday school rooms, fine teacher and Brother Neville here for the adult class, and a real pastor. I don't say that to put a bouquet to him, but I'd rather give him a little rose now than a whole wreath after he's gone. And Brother—Brother Neville, I've knowed him since I was just a boy, and now, he hasn't changed one bit. He's still Orman Neville, just like he always was.
28  I remember visiting… Even he had grace enough to ask me to his pulpit when he was a Methodist preacher down here in the city. And we had a nice congregation down there in Clarksville. Or, I guess that's called Howard Park… Harrison Avenue Methodist Church. I think that's where he must've found you down there, Sister Neville. Down there, because she was from there. I come back up, and I said to the church here; I said "That was—that's one of the nicest men, and one of these days I'm going to baptize him in the Name of the Lord Jesus." And it happened. Here he is, and now he's my chum, right along my side, and such an honorable, respectable man. He's always stood by me just like—just as close as he could stand. Whatever I say, he just lays right with me and hangs right along. Even when he first come in, he didn't understand the message then, but he believed it, and he stayed right with it. That's a honor; that's respect to a brother like that. I can't say enough for him, and now the Lord bless him.
31  All right. Now, a little preview of last evening in the breaking of the Fifth Seal. We won't go all the way back tonight, just back far enough to get the—the Fifth Seal. Now, we find out that there was the antichrist that rode on, and wound himself up from three powers, all went into one power and rode the pale horse, death, into a bottomless pit into perdition where it come from. And then we find out when the—the Scriptures says when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of God raises up a standard against it. And we seen it perfectly vindicated in the Word last night. For there was four beasts that—that answered to the—the four times that this rider rode, and he rode a different horse each time—a white horse, and then a red horse, and a black horse, and then a pale horse. And we found out those colors and what they were and what they did; then take it right back into the ages of the churches and exactly that's what it done, just perfectly. Therefore you see, when the Word of God blends together, that mean It's correct. You see? You… I believe anything that hooks with the Word of God is always, "Amen." See?
36  Now, like a person said they had a vision, and said, that—that it was… Oh, they know the Lord give it because it come with great power. Well, the vision might be all right, but if it isn't with the Word and contrary to the Word, it isn't right. Now, they may be present, some Mormon brethren or sisters, and they may be some get these tapes now. And I don't want to say that… Some of the finest people I—you would want to meet would be—be in the Mormon people, very fine type of people; and then their—their prophet, Joseph Smith, that the Methodist people killed here in Illinois, on their journey over… And so then that—that fine man… And the vision, I don't doubt at all but what he had the vision. I believe he's a sincere man, but the vision he had was contrary to the Scripture; therefore, they had to have a Mormon Bible to—to make it. (See?) This is It here, to me. This is… That's the reason. Just the Word; that's it. See?
39  One time a—a—a m—a minister came here from a foreign country, and he—and I seen him out with a—or riding around in a car with (which is not), with a—a lady. And they come to a meeting. And I found out they drove two or three days (just he and she in the meeting), to come to the meeting together; and the woman had been married three or four different times. And this minister walked up in the hotel lobby where I was and run over and shook hands with me, and I shook his hand, raised up and was talking to him. I asked him; I said, "When you're free, could I speak to you in my room just a moment?" He said, "Certainly, Brother Branham." I took him to the room, and I said to the minister; I said, "Reverend, sir, you're a stranger in this land," I said, "but this lady has a quite a name." I said, "You come all the way from Such-and-such a place down to this Such-and-such a place?" Said, "Yes, sir." And I said, "Aren't you afraid that that'll kinda… I—I don't… I'm not doubting you, but don't you think that'll reflect on your reputation as a minister? Don't you think we should put a—a little better example than that?" And he said, "Oh, this lady's a saint." I said, "I—I don't doubt that," but I said, "but, brother, the thing of it is that everybody that looks at her is not a saint. (You see?), that looks at what you're doing." And I said, "I believe you better be careful. That's just one brother to another." And he said… I said, "The lady's been married four or five times now." And he said, "Yes, I know that." Said, "You know…" I—I—I said, "You don't teach that in your church at home, do you, brother?" So said, "No, but" said, "you know, I had a vision of it, Brother Branham." I said, "Well, that's fine." I said… He said, "Do you mind?" Said, "I believe I could straighten you out a little bit on your teaching about that." And I said, "All right." And—and he—I said, "I'd be glad to know it, sir." He said, "Well," said, "you know, in this vision," he said, "I was asleep." And I said, "Yeah." (I seen then it was a dream, see.)
