Moses and Elijah. 

On page 458 and 459 it says that the Angels with the Great Voice of Trumpet to call and gather the elect are Moses and Elijah, who will call and gather 144,000 (12,000 of from each tribe) [The Seals, “The Seventh Seal,” p. 546, paras. 173-176].

It says [The Ages, p. 36]:

“We’re ready for it. Everything is in order. As the Jews brought the message to the Gentiles, even so the Gentiles will take it right back to the Jews, and the Rapture will come.”

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He is reading that from the book of The Ages, that quote that he read there, which is from page 30; and we will see this little part there that he… It says:

We’re ready for it. Everything is in order. As the Jews brought the message to the Gentiles, even so the Gentiles will take it right back to the Jews, and the Rapture will come.

[JBP] And that is where he writes: [WSS] «Rapture».

And he also writes in this book: [WSS] «A Message influencing for another Message».

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And he continues saying here [“GREETING TO PASTORS”]:

[WSS] So you are also going to see some movement from the gentiles, and it is Moses and Elijah who will take it; and it is from among the gentiles to the Jews.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the message “SPIRITUAL FOOD IN DUE SEASON,”1 Reverend William Branham tells us on page 18, he says:

95 Remember, he went into his secret place by the plan of God, by the call of God, and the Word of God. Elijah entered into his secret place ([JBP] and there he draws a Pyramid) by God’s foreknowledge, plan, and the call upon his life, and according to the Word. If that ain’t the way we entered, I don’t know how we get there.

96 And notice, before the drought begin, Elijah went into this place of secret for his living. A very type of before the judgment starts to strike the earth, the Church is already called out, the Bride is already chosen, and just waiting before the judgment strikes.

[JBP] In other words, a time of waiting.

[96] Already waiting…

[JBP] But it is a time of waiting, how?

[96] Already waiting, eating the Food of God, enjoying the blessings of God. Any man in his normal mind knows that we’re headed straight, we’re right in the hour of judgment.

[JBP] And he writes there: [WSS] «The judgment today: we are living in that hour. Rev. 14:1-9».

97 Look! Brother Banks, several of you men that’s here tonight, that standing out there on that mountain that morning.

98 And I want to speak about that mountain, next Sunday morning, the Lord willing. Got a great revelation, something further that I can’t hardly keep from telling it tonight. But I have… See? And it just constantly, all the time, one thing happening after the other. See? It’ll never stop happening, for it was THUS SAITH THE LORD.

99 Every one of you here, thousands times thousands over the tape, heard me stand and say, “THUS SAITH THE LORD, it will be thus and thus.” And even the newspapers and magazines have to declare it to be the so. They don’t know what it’s all about, but they seen it. They don’t know what it is, but they seen it, making the Word exactly the truth.

100 We was standing down here on the river, that Angel of the Lord came down that day, thirty-three years, or, 1933 it was, come down and spoke the things that He did. Walked out, and many men stand upon the bank there, said, “What did that mean, Billy?” 

101 I said, “That wasn’t for me; that was for you. I believe; you don’t.” And just went walking on ([JBP] that is, when he came out of the water he continued walking).

102 Then the pastor said to me, he said, “You mean that you, with a seventh-grade education…”

[JBP] And there he writes: [WSS] «Brother Branham had 7th grade education».

«With the teaching of 7 grades = 7 ages, the 5th Elijah will take the Message worldwide».

102 Then the pastor said to me, he said, “You mean that you, with a seventh-grade education, is going to go all over the world and pray for monarchs and potentates and kings and things? And, oh,” said, “forget It!”

103 I couldn’t forget It, It was engraved upon my heart. Now here, thirty-three years later, everything He said has happened perfectly the way He said He would do it. He’s God and can’t fail. He always keeps His Word. He… Don’t never doubt It.

104 Now, notice, he went in by the plan of God (foreknowledge), call of God, and the Word of God, and went in before the drought set in.

Now, we know that judgment is ready to strike.

105 Standing on [WSS] «judgment» the hill that day, Brother Banks Wood standing here, we was walking up the hill. Maybe I quote it again, so that build your faith for this prayer line that’s fixing to take place in the next ten, fifteen minutes. I was just walking ahead of Brother Banks. He was… I think he had left Sister Ruby when she was sick. And he coming behind me, I noticed his face, red. I looked back. I thought the hill might be a little hard for him to pull, so I kind of slowed up. Right in them deserts, right up hills like that, right where the Angels of the Lord appeared. We was heading right in that direction then, where They had appeared a few months before that.

106 And as I went up the hill, the Spirit of God… When I turned around, look on top of the mountain, He said ([JBP] there he draws a Cornerstone and the ages), “Pick up that rock, and say to him, ‘THUS SAITH THE LORD, you’ll see the Glory of God in the next few hours.’”

[JBP] Above the Cornerstone, above, he writes: [WSS] «Judgment».

And he writes: [WSS] «Rev. 18: , 11:3-19, 7:1-17».

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] On page 246 [p. 292 in Eng.] of the book of The Seals says:

[113] Now I want you to notice again, before this. Now, this here is the last of the riders, to reveal the working of the antichrist.

Tomorrow night, strikes the souls under the altar.

The next night, the judgments.

114 The next night, the going away, of the—of the end of the age, end of time, of all things, see, when She is taken up. Therefore, right in that Seventh Seal there, pours out Vials, and everything else are poured out. What they are, I don’t know.

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «The Vials in the 7th Seal».

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Our brother William continues saying here in this greeting that we are reading; he says [“GREETING TO PASTORS”]:

[WSS] Therefore, the ministries of Moses and Elijah will be in the fulfillment of the Tent Vision, that is where they will see that great manifestation and will say: “Well, this is what we are waiting for!”

And so that when they hear Elijah for the fifth time there is no doctrinal difference…

[JBP] Notice, where is he saying that they are going to hear Elijah? In the fulfillment of the Tent Vision. He was speaking there, on that occasion, quite clearly.

[WSS] And so that when they hear Elijah for the fifth time there will be no doctrinal difference, the ministry of Moses will be there, the ministry of the one who gave them the Law…

[JBP] Where will these ministries be? In the fulfillment of the Tent Vision. And if it says they are going to hear, it is because those ministries are going to be in a veil of flesh.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Look in the book of Quotations,2 on page 8, paragraph 62, it says:

62 – “184 I believe it’s on its road, that when the Church will be so wrapped in Christ, the Holy Spirit, mankind so away from theirselves, that they don’t see themselves, they don’t have no but to serve God. And their thoughts move on. They refuse the things of the world. They just move in the Spirit, live in the Spirit, move in the Spirit, walk in the Spirit, so fulfill the law of Christ. Then, the love of Christ in the human heart, moving in the Holy Ghost, that great wonderful Church will go forth with Power and Deity; because Deity will be revealed in human beings, by the Holy Spirit, bringing to pass, the thought of their mind.”

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «so they listen».

And he draws a Cornerstone and the ages there.

And he writes: [WSS] «The thought of the mind will happen (from the Mind of God)».

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He goes on to say [“GREETING TO PASTORS”]:

[WSS] …therefore, there will be no problems with them.

[JBP] That is, with the Hebrews. Why? Because the ministry of Moses will be there.

[WSS] …therefore, there will be no problems with them. Let us try to not have problems from us.

[JBP] Notice, he was already giving us the warning not to have problems among us when those ministries were operating in the Tent Vision, in the fulfillment of the Tent under that manifestation; which he was already letting us know there that the Hebrew people were not going to have any problems with those ministries, they are not going to have them.

Remember that for the First Coming of the Lord: there the Hebrew people had certain problems and the gentiles didn’t. At the Second Coming: the gentiles will have those kinds of problems, but the Hebrews will not.

So we are also seeing that the Tent Vision was not possible for the past times: of the apostles and the seven angel messengers; and although the seventh angel messenger of the seventh age wanted to fulfill that Vision, it was not possible; because that is a promise for the Church of the Lord, for the Last Day, in the stage of the Age of the Cornerstone.

That is why when he went in the vision to that place, to that Great Tent Cathedral, notice, it was not his tabernacle, it was not his tent, it was not his auditorium.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] That is in the book of Quotations,3 that which he is reading there… 474. No, there is another place. But that one too, let’s read it, 474 says:

474 – “[11] The morning that I dedicated the tabernacle, a vision came, which is written and in the cornerstone there, when the Holy Spirit said to me, ‘This is not your tabernacle.’ See? ([JBP] He is making reference to that quote) And I asked where my tabernacle was, and He set me down under the bright blue skies. And then He said, ‘Do the work of an evangelist,’ and so forth.”

[JBP] There he writes: [WSS] «A vision written in the Cornerstone of the tabernacle». And he writes: [WSS] «This is not your tabernacle», and he underlines it.

[JBP] 638? (Yes, it is this one). Page 74, paragraph 638, says [Quotations]:4

638 – “[4] …the morning that the cornerstone was to be laid, about early, about six o’clock […]

5 And I remember that morning when I had wakened up, and laying in the room, in the upstairs right here on Seventh Street. Something said, ‘Rise up to your feet.’ ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «on» ([JBP] in other words, ‘rise up on your feet’) And I got up. And I saw, as it was, a great place, and it was like a place where they would… a river [WSS] «a river» run in the valley [WSS] «a valley». And I got down there to the river ([JBP] he writes again there): [WSS] «river» and I understood it was a place where John the Baptist [WSS] «Elijah» had been baptizing the people, and they had turned it into a hog lot. And I was very critical of it, just saying that it should not be done.

6 And while I was there, there was a—a Voice spoke to me and took me up…”

[JBP] He draws a Cornerstone and the ages; and where it says: [WBM] “took me up,” there is an arrow upwards. (I am not sure if we had already read it5 …; but the drawing was there).

638 – “…and I noticed this tabernacle in just about the state it’s in right now. But there were so many people till they were just packed all in, in the tabernacle, in this condition, about the state it’s at now. And I— I was happy, standing behind the pulpit, saying, ‘God, how good You are to give me a tabernacle.’”

[JBP] He writes below: [WSS] «When the Cornerstone was going to be placed… … ».

638 – “7 And, at that time, the Angel of the Lord spake to me, and said, ‘But this is not your tabernacle.’”

[JBP] He writes: [WSS] «A valley, a river, and a tabernacle».

And he also writes: [WSS] «This is not your tabernacle».

And in question marks, he says: [WSS] «Whose is it?».

[JBP] It is of he of whom that promise is being fulfilled; the one who is present.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He continues saying [“WORDS OF GREETING TO THE PASTORS”]:

[WSS] …notice, it was not his tabernacle, it was not his tent, it was not his auditorium. When he arrived it was already being ministered…

[JBP] When he arrived it was already being ministered. In other words, what was being ministered to the people? The Word; in other words, the Word was being preached, was being brought to the people who were there present.

[WSS] …it was already being ministered. And to see all that was seen there, it had to have been there already for some time ([JBP] that is, “already for some time” ministering in that place; there was already a lapse of time of Teaching), certain time, and there had to be a trajectory until it reached the culminating part of a ministry that would be crowned with the fulfillment of the Tent Vision.

[JBP] Which ministry was going to be crowned? The one that was ministering before brother Branham appeared there; in other words, the one that had already been ministering in that place for a certain amount of time: at the end he would be crowned.

He continues to say a little further on, he says [“WORDS OF GREETING TO THE PASTORS”]:

[WSS] (…) So, being that the Third Pull —which is linked to the Tent Vision, where the Third Pull is fully fulfilled—, notice, it is in another language…; and it has to be a language of the West, that is, of the American Continent.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Look in the message “THE FEAST OF THE TRUMPETS,”6 on page 38, a little part here says:

234 The prophet said, “There will be a day that can’t be called day or night, but in the evening time it shall be Light.”

235 What was it? The same sun that shines in the East is the same sun that shines in the West.

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «The Sun in the west».

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And also in the message “THERE IS A MAN HERE THAT CAN TURN ON THE LIGHT,”7 brother Branham tells us on page 36, he says:

[168] Look, Paul, the early church, started in the East; it went from there, jumped across the—the—the—the sea, over into Germany. It’s made three pulls. Look here. From Asia, down in—in Palestine, it jumped across the ocean to Germany; that was Luther. And it jumped from Luther, across the English Channel, over into England; by Wesley. And from Wesley, she’s jumped to the West Coast, to the United States. And this, if you go any further, it’s coming back East again. This is the evening time already.

169 Look how the church ages has fought. Luther… Paul, first, back in the early age; then come down to Ireland, to Irenaeus, and so forth; on down into France; from there, over into Germany [WSS] «Luther»; over into England [WSS] «Wesley»; constantly going West.

And now we can’t go no farther. This is the last age. And what does the Bible say about this last age? See, geographically, chronologists, and almost any way you want to take it. Scripturally, first; Scripture, of course, first. Evidence, historically, any way you want to take it, we’re at the end, the last church age.

170 And, watch, as it went forward it grew stronger and stronger. And so has the real, little minority of the Church growed from justification, sanctification, baptism of the Holy Ghost ([JBP] there he draws those three parts: Luther, Wesley, and that part of the Laodicean Age, of brother Branham, messenger of the seventh age), and now to the coming Capstone ([JBP] and he draws a Cornerstone there), shaping itself up. ([JBP] He draws a Star of David, and writes): [WSS] «The Coming of the Stone».

[170] No more organizations after this.

[JBP] In other words, after the seventh age there will not be another organization; that is, it will not be denominationalized.

[170] See, can’t be, see, we’re on the West.

171 Just to show you, through all types and everything else. And look at those three jumps, three pulls ([JBP] the translator writes: stages). We’ll get into that tonight, see, see, how we’re at the end time. It’s just…

172 The s-u-n has traveled like S-o-n; S-o-n like s-u-n. The church has come the same thing, from the Seven Church Ages, and so forth. Civilization has moved right on to the West, and the Church has moved right on to the West. And now if we go any further than what we are now, we come back East again. You leave the West Coast, you go right back into China, Japan, right back in again. Seven thousand miles across, you go right back to the East again. So, East and West has met, that’s all of it. We’re at the end. There is nothing left.

([JBP] And he writes): [WSS] «Orient and Occident have found each other: East and West».

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And also in the book of… in the message, this booklet of “THE MIGHTY GOD UNVEILED BEFORE US,”8 he writes there on the back, he writes:

[WSS] «August, 1965. Brother Branham said to brother Green: My Vision about the Tent will have its faithful fulfillment; and a Message will come [Moses brings it] from West to East, from occident to orient».

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in the book of The Seals, in one of the books of The Seals… This was the last one he had there at the house studying; it was the last one of which he wrote down the annotations. And there is one of the parts where he writes… On page 472 [p. 563 in Eng.], it says (let’s read that last paragraph):

306 Now do you see it, the Truth of God’s vision, the seven Angels bringing me from the west? They were coming from the west, coming back east, bringing here for this Message tonight. [Brother Branham knocks on pulpit two times—Ed.] Oh, my!

307 Now, the Voice of that great thunder, and the mission that was brought here, has been revealed, that It… and proven that It was of God. Just think now. I knew not these Seals, and they been revealed this week. Did anybody think of that, of those seven Angels being This, being the Message that was coming forth, them Angels bringing me back here for That? See?

308 Remember, the seventh Messenger was… The seven Messengers was… The noted One to me, the seventh Angel, It seemed more to me than any. Now, see, they were standing like this. Now, we just want you to notice. And I was standing here, and I was watching those other…

309 See, one, first bunch, of little birds, feathers all beat down. You remember them? And they all flew eastward. And the second bunch, were brighter, bigger birds, looked like doves, pointed wings. They flew eastward.

[JBP] And there he writes: [WSS] «from West [America] to East [Israel]». And below that he writes: [WSS] «Birds, doves, angels».

[309] First Pull, Second Pull, then the next was Angels. And as…

310 I was standing right there, and this explosion left. And I was looking this way, towards the west, and They come and just picked me up, in There. I went plumb out of my knowing. And the one of Them, coming, was the One that looked so strange to me, was the One on my… Be to the left, where I entered the constellation at. But counting from the left to the right, it would have been the seventh Angel, see, coming across. Now, remember, the seven Messengers.

[JBP] And here at the bottom he writes, on page 472 at the bottom:

[WSS] «West = America = Tucson.

Branham Tabernacle (in other words, “Branham Tabernacle”) = PR (in other words, Puerto Rico)».

[JBP] See where the Third Pull…: there it is pointed out where it is going to be. No one can say it is somewhere else. It is already pointed out by God where God is fulfilling that promise.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He continues saying here [“WORDS OF GREETING TO THE PASTORS”]:

[WSS] And there are, let’s say, three or four languages in the American Continent, in the Central and South America part. The northern one is English; although Mexico belongs to the north as well; so they have English and Spanish, but the language of the messenger was English. And that stage moved in English, the seventh age. But now, the stage of the Age of the Cornerstone, which also corresponds to the West, to the American continent, moves in another language.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In The Seals (to place that little part where he says [WMB] “in an unknown language”) (we have already read it), in the last pages of the book of The Seals: 471… Here in this other book, in 471 [p. 562 in Eng.] at the bottom:

[299] And in Sabino Canyon, He said, “This is the Third Pull.”

300 And there’s three great things that goes with It. And one unfolded today, or, yesterday ([JBP] he writes): [WSS] «Moses and Elijah. The 6th Seal»; the other one unfolded today; and there’s one thing that I cannot interpret, because it’s in an unknown language ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «under the 7 Thunders».

[JBP] That paragraph, all the things that he writes there, we have already read.9 And he writes to the side: [WSS] «in another language».

[JBP] But there is a book where he says and he writes… (let’s see if it is in this other one) that he writes: [WSS] «Spanish». Brother Branham wasn’t going to speak it openly like that there. Here is where it’s at (but we have to look in that other book). But in 466 [p. 555 in Eng.], look (halfway) [The Seals]:

[252] Seven Thunders in a row, uttered, not… making just—just one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, straight.

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «An unknown language»; [WSS] «in Spanish».

[JBP] You have it marked there, right? Yes. (But that one over there, 471, I have to look in another book). Yes, we had already read that part there.10

Now look, on 471 (that we are looking for here in this last book of The Seals), there he writes… I don’t know if we had already read it,11 but let’s see here; in other words, his writing next to it, to have it already placed there.

Because here, on 471, we had said that – what he had written there about… (so that this paragraph is already there then:

[300] And one unfolded today, or, yesterday ([JBP] and he wrote there): [WSS] «in the 6th Seal»; the other one unfolded today ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «in the 7th Seal»; and there’s one thing that I cannot interpret, because it’s in an unknown language.

[JBP] [WMB] “and there’s one thing,” and above he writes: [WSS] «the 2nd Coming…». This part should be read with a magnifying glass, where it says:

[300] …and there’s one thing that I cannot interpret ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «the 2nd Coming…» ([JBP] but there is something else there). Yes, oh yes, I had read that one:… with [WSS] «Moses and Elijah».12

[JBP] But let’s go up here to this one. We are joining all these annotations in… Let’s go here first.

Page 471 [p. 561 in Eng.], look, so that if this, so that it is also marked (more or less in the middle of the paragraph)… He is telling about the Tent Vision; he says [The Seals]:

298 A Voice come, said, “You can’t teach Pentecostal babies supernatural things.” Said, ([JBP] and there he draws the ages, and makes the seventh age, and draws the Cornerstone) “Now, let them alone!”

299 And just then He picked me up. He took me up, and sit me way up high, to where a meeting was going on. Looked like a tent or a cathedral of some sort ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «Tent Cathedral». ([JBP] And to the other side he draws a Pyramid). And I looked, and there was a little box, like, little place over in the side. And I seen that Light was talking to somebody, above me, that Light that you see there on the picture.

[JBP] And here he draws… I think we had placed that drawing: the ages, but only the seventh age is pointed out, and there is an arrow towards the Cornerstone, very small.

And he writes to the other side: [WSS] «The 3rd Pull».

[299] It whirled away from me, like that, and went over that tent. And said, “I’ll meet you there.” And said, “This will be the Third Pull, and you won’t tell It to nobody.”

[JBP] And he writes on the side: [WSS] «Age», and a Cornerstone, in other words, Age of the Cornerstone. He writes: [WSS] «people». In other words, in the part where he says: [WBM] “you won’t tell It to nobody,” he writes: [WSS] «people», in other words: “You will not say anything to the people.” And he also writes there as well: [WSS] «Sword. Tent Cath.», that is, Cathedral.

And he writes to the side there: [WSS] «The sign on the hand, discernment, the spoken Word». And below that he writes: [WSS] «Elijah, Moses, Jesus».

I don’t know if we had already read that at some point. But what he writes there and says that [WBM] “you won’t tell It to nobody,” (in other words, to the people), all that has to do with what is going to be fulfilled in the little wooden room; and how God is going to be working in the midst of God’s people without the need to be showing the people how all that is going to be carried out.

Because the elect don’t need to see to believe. And also so that imitations don’t arise.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He continues saying where we left off here [“WORDS OF GREETING TO THE PASTORS”]:

[WSS] …moves in another language.

There is English in Central and South America, including in the Caribbean; there is French also, but very little; but the main languages are: Spanish, Portuguese and also a little bit of English.

And where that stage is being fulfilled, it will be the language of that territory, the main one, in which the Message of the Voice of the Seven Thunders will go out, which will reveal the mystery contained in the Seventh Seal.

Mystery that will give you the faith for the rapture, to go up in spiritual terms and physical terms also.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in the edited book of The Ages, there he also talks about the language, on page 36 [p. 42 in Eng.], where he is speaking about the time when Joseph revealed himself to his brothers. See there, he… in a little part he says:

[…] He spoke to his brethren in another tongue.

[JBP] And there he writes: [WSS] «another tongue».

There you can read that page 36 later, which is very important (from 35, you can read that part; all of that which brother Branham speaks about there).

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] But so that you have another place where he talks about the language: Page 90 (we had already read it)13 [The Seals] [p. 108 in Eng.]:

293 They wanted to come back. And here they are going back, to be kings and priests.

294 Glory to God! I feel good enough to speak in tongues. Look. Watch. Yes. It seems like I ain’t got enough language; I could praise Him with it. I need one ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «Spanish» that I don’t even know.

[JBP] In other words, notice that in order to speak of all that mystery which is the Age of Love —and the language of love is Spanish—, and to speak in the Cornerstone stage, the stage where the Age of the Cornerstone is fulfilled, which is the Age of Love, —therefore— God has to manifest Himself and speak in Spanish.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in the book of Quotations,14 page 154, it says, paragraph 1379:

1379 – “27 So I’ve got my mind set on this Message, that’s that Third Pull, and it’s the one I must be loyal and reverent to.”

[JBP] And he writes:

[WSS] «Two part = in English».

[WSS] «The last part = another language».

[WSS] «The Third Pull = is the Message».

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Brother William continues saying here [“WORDS OF GREETING TO THE PASTORS”]:

[WSS] He will give the faith to be transformed and raptured, and taken with Christ to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. And He gives the faith to also be raptured, to be taken up, from the seventh age to the Age of the Cornerstone. That is a spiritual rapture; because from age to age they have been going up from one age to another, and you go up.

Notice, you find in the message of Reverend William Branham, that he speaks of the seventh step, where the one who introduces the King stands. The King appears where? At the top, which corresponds, in the Church, to the Age of the Cornerstone.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And on page 161 of the book of Quotations,15 paragraph 1429, says:

1429 – “152 You can’t see with your hands, yet it’s part of the body. You can’t see with the ears, yet it can hear. You can’t see with the nose, yet it smells. You can’t—you can’t see with the lips, though it speaks; see, that was the Pentecostal age. But now it’s in the eye time, the seeing. See? Now, there isn’t one moving faculty beyond the eye. Is that right? The next is the intelligence, which is Christ Itself, Who controls the whole Body.”

[JBP] And he draws a Cornerstone and the ages.

And there he writes: [WSS] «Moses and Elijah».

In other words, look at that next part, which is Intelligence, which is Christ Himself, he places there: [WSS] «Moses and Elijah».

And above he writes: [WSS] «The eye — the prophet».

[WSS] «The Intelligence — Christ».

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in the message, as well, “THE STATURE OF A PERFECT MAN,”16 on page 44, it says:

[325] Moses lifted up the serpent on a pole. He said, “I’m the Lord that heals all your diseases.” And they looked at that serpent, for Divine healing. And yet they testify against it; yet their own sign testifies against them. Whew!

326 Here, our nation, saying the things they are, and making fun of these things, and their own money, their currency, testifies that the seal of the whole universe is God ([JBP] in other words, the eye that is on the dollar bill). See that eye standing up there above that, on that dollar bill? ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «the Seal of the universe». That’s the great seal.

327 It never was put on top of the pyramid. They couldn’t understand why. The capping Stone was rejected, the Head, Christ. But It will come, someday. [WSS] «2nd Coming».

And he writes: [WSS] «The Coming of Christ = Moses and Elijah».

328 Now, in building, the virtue… Building this monument, building this stature, see, it starts off with the foundation stone; faith, virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, godliness, brotherly kindness. Now what does it do? Then they’re waiting for the Headstone, which is love ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «the Mind = Christ» ([JBP] and he draws a Cornerstone) for God is love. And He controls, and He is the strength of every one of these things. That’s right. Yes, sir.

329 Right in here, right in here, you see I got, in between, all these works in here, and here these little waves come. What is that? The Holy Ghost coming down, through Christ, see. Holy Spirit! The Holy Spirit is above all this, welding this together, building (a what?) a perfect Church, for the Capstone to cap It off.

[JBP] That is beautiful right there, isn’t it? [WMB] “Building a perfect Church, for the Capstone to cap It off.”

The Light, Christ, the Angel of the Covenant, will shine in the West at this end time. “For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be.”17 The day in which the Son of Man will reveal Himself, will manifest Himself.

Western people, there is a great blessing to be manifested in the West. The Light, Christ, the Son of Man, the Holy Spirit, will shine in the West at this end time. And that manifestation will spread out and it will impact all of humanity in the entire world.

[JBP] Notice, humanity will be impacted by this Third Pull: the Bride will be impacted (as we spoke about today), the Bride; the foolish will be impacted; the Hebrew people will be impacted; the world will be impacted; the unbelievers will be impacted, the lost, in other words, those who no longer have an opportunity.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Look at what it says in the message “ESCAPE HITHER, COME QUICKLY,”18 (this was on February 2, ‘58), our brother Branham says:

[10] God’s Word never fails. Now, my subject that I have chosen for this afternoon is, “Escape Hither, Come Quickly.”

11 Now, I’ve been talking a few nights ago upon the sputnik. And since I have been speaking to you, three nights ago, the American government, or the army has launched them a sputnik that’s going around the world about every hundred or two minutes, making a circle around the world. And it only indicates that what was said is closer at hand.

Now, I believe if there ever was a day when men and women ought to open up their eyes and look into the Word of God, it’s today. This is the day, ’cause there may not be a tomorrow. And if the church ever buckled on its armor, it should be today. Don’t put it off one more day. If there’s anything between you and God to keep you from going in the rapture, you better make it right, now. Don’t leave your seat ([JBP] He draws a Cornerstone and the ages). We’re living in the expectations of the soon coming of the blessed Lord. And we’re watching for that hour. Jesus said Himself, “When you see these things begin to come to pass, lift up your head; your redemption draweth nigh.” Signs in the skies, fearful sights, man’s heart failing for fear, the sea a roaring, tidal waves, great things taking place.

And I know some might get in their head, “Brother Branham, why are you continually pounding at those things?” It’s on my heart. And I know that it’s supposed to be pounded at today.

12 Now, we was speaking on Babylon and the handwriting on the wall. And today, as we’re here today, we can almost feel the hot winds of judgment blowing in our face. The world has come to its end. There’s not a hope for the world outside the coming of the Lord Jesus ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «the Coming of the Lord is the only hope». That’s the only hope. You can put an Eisenhower in every county, and America will still wade in sin.

I am not looking for any great revival. The thing of it is, the revival has come and gone and you didn’t know it. It’s always been that ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «revival». You look for something, and Satan’s kept saying, “There’ll be greater over here, greater over here.” And it’s passed right by you. Did not John the Baptist come on earth and even the righteous didn’t even recognize him? Did not the disciples say, “When will Elijah come?”

He said, “He’s already come and you didn’t know it.”

The revival is just about over ([JBP] In other words, in that Age of Laodicea). Don’t look for nothing greater. We’ve already got the greatest thing in heaven, the Holy Spirit manifesting Himself in this generation. There’s nothing else that can be done.

13 But the oncoming judgments…

[JBP] He was already there prophesying that the seventh age was about to end. They could no longer move forward, because what was next was the Age of the Cornerstone.

[13] …the world is feeling it. The newspapers… And I’ve heard that in the Pentagon, I don’t know, but they say that they don’t know what to do. Well, there’s only one Book can direct you on what to do, and that’s God’s Bible. That’s the only thing that can tell you what to do; that’s lift up your head; look up. There’s no way of escape.

[JBP] He writes:

[WSS] «Luke 21».

[WSS] «Look up».

[13] It’s already come into the hands of men that they can destroy this world in an hour if they want to ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «atomic bombs». What would hinder Russia this afternoon, some of those leaders to drink one can of vodka too much, and punch a button that would send the entire world out of its orbit, and wouldn’t contrary the Scriptures a bit. There you are. See, we’re at the end time.

14 And I want to bring this to your minds, that all these things that we’ve see happen this week, when a meeting like this in a place prepared, and people unconcerned, it’s altogether indicating that that thing is at hand. And to see a little group that would faithfully, like yourselves, gather out, day after day, and night after night, because something is pressing to you, there’s something in you. You Spirit filled people, there’s something inside of you that’s warning you.

Now, some great theologian might come to the city, that maybe had a lot of education and could speak their words real good and plain, and perhaps every church in the city would fully cooperate. And it would kind of be an honor to get to go out and hear the man which might be a marvelous speaker. But that’s not what the Church is looking for. The Church, the real believer is looking for the manifestation of the Holy Spirit, something in their heart moving. The children doesn’t know what it is. But God help me this afternoon to explain to you what it is.

15 Not long ago it was my privilege to go to India, where I’d been led of the Lord. And, was striking enough, that when I got to India, they’d just had an earthquake. And I got a piece out of the paper, which is in the Christian Business Men’s office tonight, or today, my—my good friend Tommy Nickel, who’s going to publish it.

And it was that a strange thing begin to happen. About two days before that earthquake shook that great nation, that we carried it also over here, that there was a strange thing taken place, that all the cattle and all the little birds that had their nests and their roosting places up in the—the chimneys and in the great walls in India…They don’t have too many just fences; it’s big stone walls, that they pick up the rocks and make the wall. And little birds that had roosted and had their dwelling in these places, all flew away, and went out into the wilderness to stay. The cattle that hung around the walls in the evening out of the hot sun, went out and stood in the middle of the pasture.

What was it? There was not one material thing showing an earthquake. Scientist could not pick up this oncoming earthquake. But oh, may I say, “Blessed be His Name.” The Creator knew it was coming, and He moved His little creatures out from around those walls, ’cause they flattened out on the ground, and would’ve been killed.

16 And if a little bird, by instinct… He has not a soul [WSS] «soul». And if a little bird, and a cow could make their way by instinct [WSS] «instinct» away from the walls to keep from being killed ([JBP] and those walls also represent there: denominations; keep away from all of that) how much more ought the church, and this great oncoming judgment, to pull itself out from around its old haunts if you have to stand in the middle of persecution, and look up, for the redemption’s drawing nigh.

God, as He warned His birds, He also warns His people.


[WSS] We are in the cycle for that manifestation, and therefore, in the cycle for the restoration of all things; for the restoration of all things with the Coming of the Lord, the Son of Man, to restore His believers to eternal physical life; and then to restore the Kingdom of God on Earth, the Kingdom of David with the Jews, a Kingdom that will rule over all the nations, over all of humanity.

[JBP] We stand up, and thus we leave with this topic: “THE MYSTERY OF THE WEST,” our dear friend and brother, Dr. William Soto Santiago.
