The Seven Seals  by William M. Branham

Chapter 9: Questions And Answers On The Seals 63-0324M (Continued)

Day 106


269  Brother Branham, if all the… (Now, just a moment. I guess what… Pardon me.) Brother Branham, if—if all the godly (Yeah.)—godly be taken up in the rapture, where will Elijah and the—and Moses come from?
270  There's something wrong. There's something wrong. Now, that's just all there is to it. There's—there's something's happened. See? There's something that went wrong somewhere. Everybody feeling all right? There's no—there's no sickness or nothing? [A man in the congregation requests that Brother Branham read Revelation 5:9 again—Ed.] Let's see, Revelations, where was it, brother? 5… The… Oh, the question. Oh, the question I was answering. Now, let's see. "Thou…" [Continuation of Question 23—Ed.] And when he had… the book, the four beasts and the four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of the saints. And they sang a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seal thereof: for thou has—wast slain,… (And here it is. Here it is. I was wrong on that. See?)… thou has redeemed us to God by the blood of every kindred,…
271  That's right. Now, what do you think about that? Oh, if the Presence of the Holy Ghost isn't here, what is? He wouldn't let… See, I only read the first part of that verse. See, it's just—it's just a—or something wrote here, and I was trying to get through, looking at that clock. But you see Him stop me on that? Glory. I never read the other part of that. See, I got here: "and…" Look here. "And they—and they sang a new song," and I stopped. See? But look here, "the song they sang, saying, You have redeemed us out of every kindred, tongue, and nation." Sure, that's them. My, oh, my, oh, my. See it? And by the way, there's another question down here too.
272  24. Could you (c-o-n-t-r-o—) control those given—Oh, control was given white robes of Revelations 6:11 with those who washed their robes in the Blood of the Lamb? Now, let's see. Revelations 6… I just can't hurry on this, folks, like…?… this (See?), because it's going… I'm going to answer something wrong. Now, He didn't like—He didn't want me to do that. That's the truth. So help me, the Holy Spirit of God knows that's the truth. See? I just… There's something just… I—I just—I was looking at—I was looking at that clock, 11:30, and I thought, "If I don't hurry up now, I won't get to pray for the sick," and I'm—I'm trying to get that because I, in my mind is so… you… I can't… You remember, you'll just have to understand now; I—I'm a human (See?), and I—I've been in there for seven days, and my—and I got something yet this afternoon I've got to find from God. But He was so determined that I wouldn't make that error that He called me back to read the rest of that verse.
274  I just… It just felt like something just rolled over me there and said, "Go back; go back." And I thought, "Go back, what? Stop right now and start praying for the sick? What—what is it? What have I done?" And just as I started to reach for that, somebody said, "Read the verse over again." I read it over, and there at the bottom of this question, there it was (See?) Revelations 6. See, I read the first; it does sound like it at the first (See?), "And they sang a new song…" But down here, see what it was? the next, coming on down, "has redeemed us." Sure it was the Bride, the raptured saints. Could you… And here… Certainly, the—the Lamb had the Book in His hand. He'd done left the Throne of mediatorial grace. See?
276  You see how the Holy Spirit watches that? 'Cause exactly, that's the same thing I said the other night, when He had talked to me in the room, and I come down here and preached to you all: that when the Lamb left the place (Oh, my. Now, I believe we'll just take a text. See?)—the Lamb had left His seat and come forth (See?), as I got up there when He was present, that Light, which is Christ… When He was present, told… When the Lamb leaves that seat of the throne, to—being a Mediator, He becomes down here, and the day of redemption for the church is finished.
277  The next redemption is opened is for the Jews, the hundred and forty-four thousand. Is that right? Cause He promised He'd cut the tree off, you know. Now, here… Now, here He comes out, the Lamb, and then the day of redemption is finished, and all that's going to be redeemed is already been redeemed and put on the Book, and He's out here opening the Book. That's right. Oh, thank You, Lord. Forgive Thy nervous servant for trying to run over something. Now. Could you tolerate those given white robes of Revelation 6:11? Now, let's see (6 and 11). All right. Where we at on this now? White robes… Yeah, that's the—the crucified under the altar—the—the Jews between that time. They were given white robes.
281  … with those who washed their robes in the Blood of the Lamb of Revelation 7:14? No. Now, that is different, sure enough. Because see here, we find out here that these were given white robes over here in this time. They were given white robes themselves by grace, and these here had washed their robes in the Blood of the Lamb. And over in Revelations over here, this is that great multitude that come up before God of all kindred, tongues, and nations, and these are directed exactly to the martyrs of the Jews, you see. Now, now, that is correct. Now.
282  25. Brother Branham, if all of the godly was taken up in the rapture, where will the Elijah and Moses come from? Will they be Jews, or will our Elijah, given to us, be—be with them? No. The a—the a Gentile that'll be anointed with this spirit to call out the Gentiles will be taken away, 'cause, you see, the whole church, all has been taken up; and these two prophets of—of the 11th chapter is brought down; and the day of grace is ended with the Gentile and been sent to the Jews. No, it won't be the same men. I don't… I'm—I'm pretty sure of that. Now remember, these are just the best of my knowledge. Let's see what this—this says here.
283  26. Question. Does the wheat and wine… (W-h-e-a-t… No, I guess it—it meant, "What does." It doesn't have a what there.) It just says: Does the what and wine… or wheat and wine… what does the of Revelation 6:6… Let's see what it is when I get down here now, this here. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts saying, A measure of wheat for a penny, and a… measures of barley for a penny;… see that thou hurt not the wine and… oil. I guess that's meaning the wheat and the wine, that was one to the other. … was a symbol, the wine taken at the communion table of Rev—of First Corinthians 11:24, does the wine—the wine… No, one of them is a spiritual symbol (See?), and the other one is actually the—the revelation of the Word.
285  27. Could it be that the reason many are sick, because we did not discern the Lord's Body? (Correct.) but now revealed by the opening of the Sixth Seal… (Let's see now. Let me see if I can get that now. It's—it's not you, it's me. You didn't… You wrote it all right; it's just me.) Could it be that the reason many are sick, because we do not discern the Lord's Body? (That's—It's got a question mark at the end of that.) Well, the Scripture says that many are sick and weakly among you because of the discerning of the Lord's Body. That's exactly right, because (See?), the Lord's Body is the Bride, and many of them go off and they don't go with it. That's true. See, and they don't know how to behave themselves, lives any kind of a life and take communion and things, that's not right. See? When people take communion that lie and steal and drink, and… That's—that's—that's terrible. You shouldn't do that. See?
287  … but now reveal by the opening of the Sixth Seal? The opening of the Sixth Seal. Let's see now. No. Now, you find out the Sixth Seal opening here was to the Jews. See? The—the Church is done gone. This is the tribulation period. So it wouldn't be the same, no. No, it isn't. One of them is a spiritual wine; that's the revelation of the Word, then the—the believer becomes stimulated by the revelation of the Word, and the other one is a symbol of the Blood of Jesus that's taken at the Lord's table. Now, that's the best of my understanding of it.
288  28. Will any that are not predestinated accept the Lord. If they do, will they fall away? Not if they're predestinated, no. See, they couldn't.
289  29. Where is the Scripture that shows that the—that Catholicism will deceive the Jews and get their wealth? Now, just where does it say that—that—that the beast will deceive for the wealth; it doesn't say that. But we're presuming that that was… (Now, the other night, you remember… you look to the tape real close.) I never said that's what they would do, I said… See, the Catholics is the richest group in the world, nobody like them. And what they don't have, the Jews has the rest. That's where the economics of this country now… We're right now living on tax money, according to "Lifeline," that will—off of taxes, that comes right from Washington, DC, that'll be paid in forty years from today. That's what we're spending now. That's how far back we are—giving notes. See? On taxes that will be paid in forty years from now… The nation is broke. She's done.
