The Seven Seals  by William M. Branham

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

Day 90


220  Lewi Pethrus of the Stockholm Church sent them a million Bibles, and those Jews coming in there… You've seen the picture; I've got it on the reel right back here now: "Three Minutes To Midnight." And them Jews coming in from all over the world, everywhere, begin gathering in over there. After England had went in there during the time of General Allenby in the "Decline of the Worlds War," in second volume I think it is, and they surrendered—the Turks surrendered. Then they give it back to Israel, and she's been growing as a nation. And now, she is a perfect nation, her own money, currency, flag, army, and everything else. See?
223  And these Jews coming back to the homeland, they were… First thing, when they went down in Iran and down in there to get them, they asked—they said… He… The—they wanted to take them back to Israel, give them their—take them back to their land, Palestine, where they was supposed to be. And remember, as long as Israel is out of that land, she's out of the will of God. Like Abraham, who it was give to. And when… They wouldn't get on that plane. They didn't never seen anything like that. There was an old rabbi stepped down there and said, "Our Prophet told us that when Israel went home, it'd be on the wings of an eagle." On the plane away home… There she is now, building, the fig tree restoring. Amen. The old six-point Star of David flying. The Gentile days numbered, With horrors encumbered…
227  The tribulation period's right at hand, standing right here, and the Seals being opened, the Church ready to take her flight in the air, and the tribulation set in. Then God comes down and pulls the hundred and forty-four thousand out of there. Amen. There… Oh, it's perfect. You see where the Seals bring it out now (See?), open it up? Now, this is the last three and a half years to the people. Also, if you notice, it's the time that God will call that one hundred and forty-four thousand Jews in this last three and a half years. See, He hasn't dealt with them at all. They haven't had a prophet. They won't believe nothing else but a prophet. You ain't fooling them. So they're going to hear a prophet (Yes, sir.); and that's all. The God told them that in the beginning, and they stay right with it.
231  He said, "The Lord your God shall raise up a prophet among you like me." Moses said that. And said, "Him shall you hear. And ever who will not hear that prophet will be cut off from the people." That's right. And see, their eyes had to be blinded or they'd have recognized Him. Instead of that being blinded, they were—that let Satan get on them, and they say, "He's a fortune teller, Beelzebub. Let his blood be upon us; we know there's nothing to him." See? And the poor people was blinded. That's the reason the Eichmann group, and all that group was slain back there, had a right to come in; their own Father had to blind their eyes so He could take us. That's the most pathetic thing in the Scriptures nearly. Just think of their, the Jews were calling the blood of their own Father, their own God hanging there, bleeding.
234  Look, "There they crucified Him," the Bible said. That's a four of the greatest words… Look. There, Jerusalem, the most holy city in the world; they, the most holy people in the world; crucified, the most brutal death in the world; Him, the most important Person in the world. Why? The religious people, the greatest religion in the world, the only true religion in the world was standing there crucifying the very God that their Bible said would come. Why didn't they see it? The Bible tells us that God blinded them so they couldn't see it. They… He said, "Which one of you can accuse Me of sin?" In other words, "If I hadn't done exactly what's predicted for Me to do, then you tell Me." Sin's unbelief. He done exactly what God told Him, but they couldn't see it.
236  Now, when you talk to people, it's just like pouring water on a duck's back. Do you see what I mean? It's a pitiful thing. When you see this nation, and people the way they do, so starch, they, religion… But don't the Holy Spirit tell us that they'll be heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, and despisers of those that are good. "They'd have a form of godliness but would deny the power of the Gospel." Said, "From such turn away from them."
237  Here we are; these denominationals twist it up. They take all the glory and power, place it back with the apostles and the rest of it over in the Millennium. It's just like a man, as I have said before: A man is always giving God praise for what He has done, looking forward to what He will do, and ignoring what He's doing right now. Exactly. Man's still the same thing. There were them Jews standing there saying, "Glory to God." Why, as the 6th chapter of Saint John said, "Our Fathers eat manna in the wilderness." And Jesus said, "They are everyone dead."
239  They drank water from the rock in the wilderness and…?… He said, "I am that Rock." That's right. Amen. He said, "But I'm the Bread of Life that come from God's out of heaven—that Tree of Life from Eden back yonder. If a man eats this Bread he shall not die. I'll raise him up again at the last days." Oh, oh, they couldn't see it. That's right. The very Messiah standing there speaking the very words of their heart, and things like that, showing that He was Messiah, just what Messiah was supposed to do. And them standing there with their hands behind them, and, "Hah, it can't be. No, no. He—he—he didn't come in the right trend. See, he come out of Bethlehem, and he—he's nothing but an illegitimate child, and that's the devil working on him. We—we know he's mad. He's crazy; he's got a devil." See, their eyes were actually blinded to that. Now, but they're looking for their prophet; and they're going to receive it, going to receive two of them. That's right.
244  Now, notice again. Now, also when these Jews… I'll give you another little symbol so you can realize that it's Jews over here now on this side of the rapture. Watch what takes place. It's also symbolized (We won't take time to do it, 'cause we run—run out here.)—also symbolized in the—in what was called Jacob's trouble. Now, look, these Jews here has… Notice. Oh, it's a… I—I'm going to take just a little bit time here. It makes me nervous when it starts getting around like that then. See? Notice. I want you to see it. And I—I… And this… Well, God will show it to you, I'm sure. Look. Jacob had the birthright. Is that right? But he sure was a little shyster with it. See? He went down and he deceived his daddy; he deceived his brother; he done everything; but yet legally right down, he had it; because Esau had sold out. But then, when he goes down there to work for his father-in-law, he put those poplar sticks in the water to make those pregnated cattle and things bring forth speckled calves, and, oh, you know everything he done like that, just to—to gain money.
247  Now, watch. Now, he was ousted from his people. Now, it's a type of the Jew now. He's a money snatcher. I don't care how he gets it; he will get it. He will skin you alive to get it. You know that. He's a little shyster; that's all. Boy, don't deal with him. He—he will get you, boy. Yes, sir. Why? He's got to be that. That's the kind of a spirit that's dominating. Just exactly like them reformers could not understand this Word, because that was the spirit of the man sent to them. It's the eagle age that gets the Word and the revelation. All that understands that, raise up your hands, so I… See? That's good. That's fine. See, that's good.
249  Now, see, if you can get back here under these Seals, if they can ever get… When they're opened, you can see exactly what God is a-doing, what He has done, what He is going to do. Here it is exactly, and that's the reason men acts that way, because that's the spirit that's predicted for that age to be on them. They couldn't do nothing else. Nothing could… John, Paul, and them, that Lion spirit there, the—the L-i-o-n standing there, the Word Itself… Paul stood right with that Word and said, "I know this, that there'll be false brethren rise up among you. Go around and what they'll make—denominations and everything else among you. And what they'll do, they'll go on to the last days and horrible time." Why? He was a prophet. There stood that Word in Him, how it would end up way over there. Said, "false men among yourselves will rise up and speaking things, and draw away brethren who are disciples. That's exactly the antichrist." It did just exactly that.
253  Notice, after it went in the dark age of the tribulation, what was it? There was nothing they could do. Rome owned the—he had the religious power and he had the political power. Wasn't nothing they could do, but just labor to stay alive and give theirselves for sacrifice. It was an ox. That's all they could do. That's the kind of spirit they had, the Spirit of God, the ox. Then here come the reformers, the head of a man, shrewd, wise: Martin Luther, John Wesley, and so forth; Calvin, Finney, Knox, the rest of them. Here they come forth, and when they did, they were reformers. They come forth reforming—bringing the people out. And turned right back around exactly like they did back there and married right straight back into her again on the denominational system. That's exactly. The Bible said so. She was a whore, and then she had harlot daughters. Just exactly.
256  And God said, "I—I give her space to repent, and she didn't do it, so I'm going to take her and her offsprings, cast them over yonder where they belong." That's exactly. Now, that's… God said that down under this Seal—under the Seal. Now, there she was. We find out that He does that, and He will do it. And they're everyone headed that way. But the, all that's got their names on the Book of Life, God will call; they'll hear it. "My sheep hear My voice," Jesus said. Only thing we got to do is make a sheep call. Goats don't know it.
