1Leviticus 23:15-16You shall count for yourselves -- from the day after the Shabbat, (Sabbath in English.) from the day when you bring the Omer of the waving -- seven Shabbats, they shall be complete. Until the day after the seventh sabbath you shall count, fifty days... (there's your day of Pentecost right there.)You shall convoke (or gather together) on this very day -- there shall be a holy convocation for yourselves -- you shall do no laborious work; 21 it is an eternal decree in your dwelling places for your generations.

2Now, Pentecost or in Hebrew it's "Shavu'ot", ends the Festival of Weeks, and is the second of the three major feasts that are significant to Judaism and Christians. The first in the Jewish calendar is "Passover" which not only commemorates the departure of Israel from Egypt but also commemorates the first Harvest season. we went into detai concerning this a few weeks ago to show you how there was to be a lamb for a house, etc, and how Christ fulfilled the Passover sacrifice right to the day.

3The last festival or feast is Sukkot, known as the Feast of Tabernacles or feast of the tents, and is also known as the Festival of Ingathering and it commemorates Israel's wandering in the desert and the final harvest of the year. It represents the last Harvest of the year, and the time when the first fruits are harvested and brought to the Temple.

4The reason I bring these up this morning is that we might gain a better understanding of Acts chapter 2 which we will read for our text this morning.

5Acts 2:1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. 5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven. 6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language. 7 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans? 8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born? 9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia, 10 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes, 11 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God. 12 And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this? 13 Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine. 14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words: 15 For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day. 16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel; 17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: 18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: 19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: 20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come: 21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

6Now this is significant because this morning we're going to read the next paragraph of brother Branham's sermon, "What the Holy Ghost was Given for" and this will be number 30 in our series. And I want you to listen to what brother Branham says in this next paragraph because it sounds like Acts 2, Joel 2, Revelations 6 and Matthew 24. All of which speak of the days of the sixth seal judgment.

7So let's read, 84 When the moon and stars is gone, and the earth has weeped itself into the mountains, and the deserts and everything has, it's no more, and the world's a-toddling like a drunk man coming home at night, and the stars refuse to shine and fall from the heavens, and the moon turns into blood, and the sun blushes (blushes means it turns red) and hides its face, when they see the Son of man coming, you'll shine in the righteousness of Jesus Christ to come forth from the grave as a young, beautiful woman to take your mate and live forever and forever and forever; and all eternal ages you'll still be living. That's what the Holy Ghost is for.

8Now, I want you to notice the promise. He's talking about resurrection power, and power to change the body from old to young again. And notice he speaks of all these signs in the heavens concerning the moon, sun and stars, and when the earth finally goes into a meltdown, he says, you will still be alive, you will still be living.

9Now, let me read the next paragraph before we begin to fix our thoughts on what He is telling us here.

1085 If you feel the least tug, don't turn It away. What is the Holy Ghost? God in you. What's It for? To continue His work among His people; to bring His church together; to bring a church to a place in this day, far beyond the Lutheran, Methodist, and Pentecostal, into a place to a adoption and a rapturing grace, that when this part of the church, when the Spirit moves into this church here, it'll just raise. And it'll bring forth, bring forth all of the redeemed that's touched that Spirit. Those Lutherans who stood there with all the light they had in Justification; those Methodists that fell on the floor, and they throwed water in their face from the Spirit striking them through sanctification; those Pentecostals, that they walked up and down the streets and they called them "tongues demons," and "Jabberers," and "goose language," and all of that; they'll stand in the righteousness in the sight of God at that day just as certain as this Bible stands here. (notice, he says they will all stand together, the resurrected saints and the living together at that day.)

11If you believe me to be a servant (You call me His prophet; I don't call myself that, but you listen.), I'm telling you in the Name of the Lord: Those that are in Christ will God bring with Him at His coming, at the resurrection, and only those that are in Christ.
Now, notice he is quoting 1 Thessalonians 4 here when he says, Those that are in Christ will God bring with Him at His coming, at the resurrection, and only those that are in Christ.

12But this that ought to settle the matter of how you should be living your life right there. There is still too much focus on these bodies, and how we can do this for our body and how we can do that.

13The Bible says in 1 Timothy 4:8 For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.

14Let me read this from the translation called the Message: Exercise daily in God—no spiritual flabbiness, please! Workouts in the gymnasium are useful for the body, but a disciplined life in God is far more useful, making you fit both today and forever. You can count on this. Take it to heart. This is why we’ve thrown ourselves into this venture so totally. We’re banking on the living God, Savior of all men and women, especially believers.

15I was a well trained athlete in my day and I look back on it as folly. We spent hours and hours every day honing our muscles, and speed, and for what? To put money in the bank of the University. A payback that was temporary. If men and women would spend the amount of time tending to their soul as they do for their bodies, you would see a mighty church of God in these days.

16But to show you that this tending to the body is just a fad, look back at the really great characters in this nations. George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and men Like Billy Sunday who walked away from Professional Baseball to Preach the Gospel, and William Branham who walked away from professional Boxing to walk with God. I am thankful myself for walking away from professional sports to walk with God. And that is where I have placed my efforts. To serve him.

17We should be spending our time getting our souls ready, not our bodies. You won't even take your body that you have now with you over there, "for Flesh and blood will not inherit the kingdom of God." The Bible says, "had the man knew what hour he would come he would have been ready," but the Whole warning of Scripture is to let us know, as Paul said in 2 Corinthians 6:2 "For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation."

18Now, we're looking at terrible days ahead, when all those signs in the heavens above and the earth below are beginning to show forth the days of sorrows that the Bible speaks of, and yet the typical American today fills his time with tending to his here and now, instead of getting himself ready for going in a rapture. And we know that these signs which are already beginning to show themselves are not to get you ready, they are for those who will be left behind.
The problem as I see it is people think they will have time to get more focused later on and I'm here to tell you this morning, you are only delusional if you think that you will have time to get ready later. He's coming as a thief in the night, and if you are not preparing yourselves now, it will be too late later, because you are setting a habit that you will not be able to break.

191 Thessalonians 5:2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

20But that's not all it says, it also says, when he comes secretly, it will be too late and then sudden destruction will come, and there is no preparing for what is coming, you prepare now.... 2 Peter 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

21Brother Vayle always told me to watch the people. He said when they loose interest in coming to church Wednesday nights, it won't be long before they quit paying their tithes and supporting the church, and then they will stop coming altogether. He said that is the pattern for people falling away from serving God.

22Now, this morning we're going to address these signs in the heavens that brother Branham spoke of in What the Holy Ghost was Given for, and they have to do with the judgments of the sixth seal. but before we do, let's read from Revelations chapter 6: 1-11 to review quickly the first five seals.

23Revelations 6:1 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. 2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.

24Notice he was dressed in white which appears righteous, but he had a bow but no arrows. meaning he was a bluff. Brother Branham taught us this was the Spirit of Nicolaitianism that went forth in the church first as a doctrine.

253 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. 4 And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.

26Notice power was given to him, that doctrine of Nicolaitianism became incarnate in a man that was elected to be over the people. That took place when men elected a papacy to rule the hearts of men instead of the Holy Ghost to rule the hearts of men. Notice the horse was red signifying the killing of those who opposed.

275 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. 6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

28Brother Branham said of this black horse as black represents famine and famine for the Word, and the scales represented he said, "this black horse was riding, when they charged for their sacrifices and everything they done, and money was just... Oh, you know how it was.

297 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. 8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

30Brother Branham taught us the brindle color was all the colors we've seen in this horse mixed together, and that antichrist spirit, formed an organization, gave birth to some daughters of organization, changing his power three times, and put them in one, and made a pale horse, and then given a name called Death, and rode him into eternity. Just as plain as it can be.

31So the first four seals had to do with the church and how that spirit of Nicolaitianism came in first as a doctrine then was incarnated in a man, then destroyed the church and ate away at her very foundations.

329 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: 10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? 11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

33Now, Brother Branham told us this speaks of the Jews that were martyred under Hitler and Stalin. Notice they sought vengeance, and they were called servants, not bride. These were not martyrs for Christ but were martyrs for the testimony which they held.

34Revelation 6:12. And I beheld when he had opened the Sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; (that's one thing, and when brother Branham was told to throw that rock into the air, and it came down it formed a whirlwinde that blasted the side of th cliff and dislodged pyramid shaped rocks that scattered all over and then that whirl wind headed west. Brother Branham said, the judgments of God are now in the earth. A few days later an earthquake almost sunk Alaska. I've been up there and I've seen the towns along the coast where they still haven't completely fixed the damage yet. So the earth quake is just one thing.

35Now, let's read on. "and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; 13. And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth,

36We've begun to see more and more asteroids coming down all over the earth, like the one that exploded over Russia that was equal to thirty Hiroshima Atomic bombs. From the Sunday express a Newspaper in the UK, we read, "But NASA has recently spotted a previously unknown asteroid belt that has been located in deep space and is now hurtling towards our part of the solar system. It means a 'global killer' could collide with Earth wiping out life as we know it and changing the climate for millennia. The terrifying predictions came as NASA revealed disturbing new data showing 400 impacts are expected, based on new observational data of objects seen in space over the past 60 days.

37Most will have a maximum diameter of around 100 metres - the size of seven double decker buses - and the potential to cause significant damage. But concerned scientists warned a colossal "monster" is also heading our way, with one 'mega' asteroid threatening earth in just SIX years.)

38"even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind." Now, if these asteroids bombard the earth you can sure bet there will be climate chaos and wind storms that will shake everything that can be shaken as God said He would do.

3914. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; (now this can't be good. It means that you will not see any light from the stars, moon or sun. Total darkness which could happen because of all the volcanic eruptions spewing out so much soot that it darkens the skies, they are predicting for 40 years or more. if you've seen the History channel documentary about the seed vault up in the mountains of Norway, they mentioned the total darkening of the earth do to the Volcanoes being set off.)

40"and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. Now, this is a total meltdown of the earth, and tidal waves a mile high wiping out all the islands of the earth.

41You can't get ready for that if you're here. But God said it is coming.

4215. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, (that's all the generals) and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;

43Now, look, those people are already preparing to be here, but it won't do them any good. I do not know if you have read my study on all these end time prophecies, but it is 36 pages of Bible prophecies, Prophecies by Will Branham and then actual pictures of all these things that the governments and peoples of the earth have been preparing for.

44And the Message people who should take heed to the warnings, and pray like they have never prayed before are still obsessed with sports, and their body sculpting, and Xtreme workouts, and you name it instead of spending what time they have making sure their soul is right with God.


16. And (the kings, and Rich elites, and the high up elected officials, and billionaires, and generals) said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 17. For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? Who is able to stand? Nobody!!!

45Now, this what we have just read to you in red, is just the beginning of what the Bible says about the sixth seal. And brother Branham tells us that the sixth seal does not concern the Bride of Christ, she is gone. It concerns the Jews.

46Sixth seal the 63-0323 P:21 And we're living in a terrific time, the time that... You see, these things that we're in now, that we're studying right now, is after the Church is done gone. See? These things are the tribulation period. And I think it ought to be truly settled in every believer's heart that this Church never takes the tribulation period. You cannot put nowhere the Church in tribulation. I... You put the church there, but not the Bride. See, see? The Bride's gone on, 'cause (See?) She has not one sin, not a thing against Her. The grace of God has covered her over, and the Bleach has took every sin so far away, there's not even ever a remembrance of it, not a thing but purity, perfect in the Presence of God. Oh, it ought to make the Bride get down on her knees and cry out to God.

47It ought to but why doesn't it?

48Now, in his sermon he preached on the sixth seal, Brother Branham said, Sixth seal the - 63-0323 p. 38 What an introduction to see the riders now, the riders, beasts, and the answering beasts has ceased. Then we taken up. We see the martyrs under the throne. Now, this... from the time... These martyrs are the true orthodox Jews that died in religious faith, because they could not be Christians. Remember, God blinded their eyes. And they're going to be blind for a long time until the Gentile Church is taken out of the way. 'Cause God doesn't deal with them two people at the same time, because it's very contrary to His Word. 39. Remember, He deals with Israel as a nation always. It's the nation of Israel. The Gentiles as individuals, people taken from the Gentile. And it had to... The Gentile had to be made up of all the people of the world, so now and then there's a Jew comes into that. See? Just like Arabian and Irish and Indian and what-more. It's all the people of the world make up this bouquet Bride. See? But now, when it comes to dealing then with Israel, in this last part of the seventy weeks, He deals with them as a nation. The Gentiles are finished. The hour's soon arriving (and maybe yet this very night) that God will completely turn from the Gentiles altogether. Exactly. He said so. "They shall tread down the walls of Jerusalem until the Gentile dispensation be finished."

49The times are over. Yes, sir. And then, "Let him that's filthy, stay filthy. Let him that's righteous be righteous." See? 40. There's no more Blood on the seat in the sanctuary at all. There's no more Blood on the altar. The sacrifice has been removed; and there's nothing but smoke and lightning and judgment in there. And that's just exactly what's poured out here tonight. (See?)The Lamb's done left His mediatorial work. The mediatorial work has been finished from over on the throne, and the Sacrifice, as we've typed Him perfectly, the Kinsman Redeemer, the bloody Lamb that come forth, the Lamb that had been slain (a bloody One, been killed, bruised), come forth and took the Book out of His hand. That's... The day's are finished. Now, He's coming to claim what He has redeemed. Amen. That just sends something through me. 41. We find out now, John said, "I beheld when He had opened the Sixth Seal, there was a great earthquake." Then all nature was interrupted. See? God's been doing great things, like healing the sick, and open the eyes of the blind, and doing great works, but we find out here that nature took a tumble. Yes, all nature...Look what taken place, the earth quaked; the sun went black; and the moon wouldn't give its light; and the stars shook and fell; and, why, everything happened (See?) right at the time of the opening of this Sixth Seal. That's when it takes place, right immediately after the announcing of those martyrs. See? The martyrs had been finished. 42. Now, you see, we're right close into that hour now. It could be at any time (See?), because the Church is just about ready to take its flight. But remember, when these things happen, the Bride won't be here. Just remember, the Bride's gone. She don't have to go through any of it. This is a time of tribulation of purification of the--of the church. It's put upon her for her to go through it, not the Bride; He takes His sweetheart out of the way. Yes, sir. She's... done redeemed Her. See it's kind of a... That's His own selection, His own choice, like any man takes his bride. See?

50Now, listen, you're all looking for these things to happen, because of the blood moons, and the solar eclipses and yet those signs are preconditions of the sixth seal. The Bride is gone when the real judgments start. So how close are we brothers and sisters, when we are seeing the moon turning to blood, and the sun becoming darkened?

51We should be gathering together every day to pray and seek God. We should leave the church doors open day and night for you to come and get into this atmosphere of His presence, and seek His face and make sure that you're ready to leave here. But no, instead we can't even show up for Wednesday night prayer meeting. We've got more important things to do, like attend to our bodies. Rest our bodies so we can go make more money for the great whore system. God has come down and he is wooing a bride and you won't even come to meet with Him. But you would never miss a day of work, because o that paycheck, that's what life is all about? Is it? My Bible says, "seek ye first the Kingdom of God and all these thing shall be added unto you."

52And you think you're going to be ready? My Bible tells me "the bride has made herself ready."

53Now, let's continue to read what brother Branham was telling us when he preached the Sixth seal. Sixth seal the - 63-0323 49. And I thought under this Sixth Seal, when the Holy Spirit broke it forth there, I seen what it was, then I thought it'd be a good thing to give the class a little something different tonight

54Now it looks like brother Branham is saying here, the Holy Spirit broke this seal to me but I'm not going to talk to you about it, I thought it'd be a good thing to give you something different tonight.

55You know that is a very strange thing to say in light of the angel coming into the room and him spending his entire day in there, and then commenting that after the seal broke he had to get out of the room to clear his head, because it was too much to take.

56That fits exactly with what he told Br. Billy Paul told me happened when brother Branham came out of the room. As best I remember brother Billy telling me, Br. Billy asked Br. Branham when he came out of the room, having just met with the angel, Br. Billy asked his dad, "what did the angel reveal to you tonight?" and Br. Branham replied, "I can't tell you son, because if I did you would never sleep again the rest of your life. I can't tell it to the people, because They wouldn't be able to handle it."

57So we see brother Branham begin to read the Scripture concerning the sixth Seal and then he assures us we will be gone when the things mentioned in the Scriptures begin to take place. But what of those people who are not in the Election? As you read on in Scripture, chapter six God no longer is dealing with the Gentiles in mercy, He's turned back to the Jews, and deals with Israel as a nation, not as individuals like he did the Gentile bride.

58Let's continue to read what brother Branham says concerning the sixth seal...

59(See?), 'cause it might be tiring you just listen to me talking all the time. So I thought that we'd do something different. 50. Now, notice. This great event was sealed under the Book of mystery of the redemption. Now, the Lamb has it in His hand and is going to break it. Now, let's look to Matthew the 24th chapter, the Lamb Himself speaking. Now, anyone knows that Christ is the Author of the whole Book as far as that concerned, but this is His speech here or His sermon to the people (All right.) and to the Jews. 51. Now, I want you to hold your Book like this: Matthew 24 and Revelations 6, like this, and let's compare something here just a little bit. So watch this now, and you can find out just how it is.

60Sixth seal the - 63-0323 Now, now, let's look at the 24th chapter of Saint Matthew and Revelations 6 and compare the 24th chapter of Matthew. We all know that that was the chapter that every scholar, every person goes to, to--to talk about the tribulation period. It comes out of the 24th chapter of Matthew. And now, let's... 52. If that is so... Now... We... For we know that this Sixth Seal is the judgment Seal. It's the judgment Seal: exactly what it is. Now, see, we've had the antichrist ride, seen the Church go, now it's finished, goes up. Then we see the martyrs of them Jews back there under the altar. Now, here is the breaking forth of the judgment upon the people where out of this tribulation judgment will come forth the hundred and forty-four thousand redeemed Jews. I'll prove to you they are Jews and not Gentiles. They have nothing to do with the Bride, not a thing. The Bride... We done see the Bride's gone. You can't place that anywhere else: don't come back again until the 19th chapter of the Book of the Acts Revelations.

61Br. Branham said Acts but it's actually the Book of Revelations, as there are other places he also refers to this as well.) 53. Now, notice, for the Sixth Seal is the judgment Seal of the Word. Now, here, let's start out now and let's read Saint Matthew the 24th chapter.

62Sixth seal the - 63-0323 69 Notice, no beast... That's the 12th verse starting off on our Seal to see it open. No beast-like living creatures was represented here either, like it was on the Fifth Seal. Why? This happened the other side of the Gospel age, in the tribulation period. 70. This Sixth Seal is the tribulation period. That's what takes place. The Bride has gone. See? There's no living creature, nothing there to say it. It's just... Now, God is not dealing with the Church no more. It's been gone. He's dealing with Israel.

63Now, Chapter Seven deals only with the Jews, and the time of Tribulation. Thus God is no longer dealing in mercy with the Gentiles.

64Revelation 7:1 And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. (Now, in order for that to happen, the earth would have to stop it's rotation. So something comes at this time to cause the earth to stop rotating.)

652. And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, 3. Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. (now, remember these servants of God are the 144,000 Jews) 4. And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel. 5 Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand. 6 Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand. 7 Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand. 8 Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand. 9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; 10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. 11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, 12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.

66Ok, so you see so far it is only dealing with the Jews in this chapter, and it lists the tribes and how many in each tribe will be marked with the seal of God which is the baptism of the Holy Ghost.

6713. And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? 14. And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. (In other Words, messianic Jews, the Jews who gave their lives for Christ) 15. Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. 16. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. 17. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

68Next we come to the Seventh seal, which is the coming of the Lord. Notice there is an overlap between the sixth seal and the seventh. But the Seventh Seal is the coming of the Lord.

69Revelation 8:1 And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.

70Now, brother Branham taught us that the seventh seal is the coming of the Lord and the reason there was silence is because no man knows the day or hour when he will come, only the Father.

712. And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets. 3. And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. 4. And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand. 5. And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake. 6. And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound. 7. The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up. 8. And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; 9. And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed. 10. And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; 11. And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter. 12. And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise. 13. And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!

72Revelation 9:1 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. 2. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. 3. And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. 4. And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. 5. And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. 6. And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them. 7. And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. 8. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. 9. And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. 10. And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months. 11. And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon. 12. One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter. 13. And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, 14. Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. 15. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. 16. And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. 17. And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. 18. By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. 19. For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt. 20. And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: 21. Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts
