When the Seal of God is being known
When the Seal of God is being known
Good afternoon. Greetings to the missionary Miguel Bermudez Marin, and to all the ministers and to all the brothers and sisters that are gathered today there in Colombia, who have…, it is a holiday; and there are a lot of places, many congregations that are gathered, like the congregation there “El Sol de la Mañana,” in Bogota, there with Camilo Montoya; also with Mario Villegas; also in the coast of Colombia and other places of Colombia.
Also in Venezuela with our brother Luis Brito and our brother Neptali Diaz, in their different places. Also in Chile with our brother Patricio. In Peru with our brother Toribio. In Panama, in Spain, in the United States, also in Paraguay, in Ecuador; and in Mexico there are also several places that are gathered, or will be gathered tonight, or tomorrow, or in these days.
To mention them all would take too much time; but you know that all of you are always included in these greetings; that, even if I don’t mention the names, you are all included. And many ask me for a specific greeting for a place, and sometimes I can send them, or sometimes I include them in the general greetings. So to everyone (even if I don’t include you): you are always included in these greetings.
We all want to be prepared for our adoption, because that is why we have already come up to this place, up to this time: it is to prepare ourselves to obtain those promises that He made through the prophets of God, which pointed to this time; and they saw it from afar. And many of them spoke as if it was in their time; others spoke as if they were themselves; and countless prophecies they spoke inspired by God, and they spoke to the people, and it was implied as if it was in their time and as if they were themselves. But there was going to come a time when it would be a reality.
As when it happened at the time of the fulfillment of the First Coming of the Lord: noice, many prophets spoke and prophesied of the Coming of the Lord, and also of the sufferings that He would have. As, for example, David said: “They pierced my hands and my feet. I can count all my bones”1; all that would be fulfilled and would be carried out fully, in a real way, that is, the fulfillment of that in Jesus of Nazareth.
And so, many prophecies that spoke about the First Coming of the Lord, many of them spoke as if it was being fulfilled in them at that time. It was God reflecting Himself in all those prophets that spoke of the First Coming of the Lord. And so it is for the Second Coming of the Lord. Because God doesn’t change His way, God doesn’t change His form: as He did it from the beginning, so He will continue to do it until the full fulfillment of His Program.
I want in this little talk that we have on this occasion, to take advantage and send this greeting to all those who will be gathered – are gathered and will be gathered tonight, and tomorrow and the day after tomorrow; this greeting can be placed for everyone. And also, if some more words get recorded during the week, you can also place it, to share all these Scriptures and these important writings, which have been of great blessing and of great help and great knowledge, because that is what each one of us needs.
If we didn’t need it, then God wouldn’t have to have this stage, in which is the fulfillment of what was already spoken that was going to take place in a Great Tent Cathedral; if not, then it wouldn’t have been necessary to make a Tent Cathedral.
The main part has already been done, and everything that was spoken that was going to be fulfilled before the full fulfillment of that Vision that was shown to the Reverend William Branham is already being carried out. God is fulfilling everything according to His Program.
It tells us in the message “LOOKING AT THE UNSEEN,”2 … I am directly from the message, from the booklet; this was preached on October 3, ‘58, that is on page 26, paragraph 216 [Quotations]. That is the excerpt we are going to read here, from the book itself, to read what brother William wrote here. It says:
9 And today, in the interviews, the Holy Spirit was wonderful, today. And it seem like that maybe it’s just going to continue on for a while, until that tent comes in, up under the same ministry that I’ve had. [WSS] «the Tent».
[JBP] If it is the same ministry, then he is already telling us there that it is the ministry of Elijah, which will also be there; because he had the ministry of Elijah in his fourth manifestation.
 Because, in the interviews today, there were four great outstanding visions took place, in the interviews. So, seemingly, maybe, I will continue on until that maybe the tent starts, or wherever it is He has chosen to begin to declare His Name in a new way. [WSS] «the Tent and the New Name». But when It does, it’ll be just as perfect as the others. It’ll be just…And I’m trusting to God that it will be greater than the others ([JBP] in other words, than the other two stages). Not because of—of our ministry, but because of the sick and needy people. There’s such a need in the land today!
[JBP] It will be a time of great need; and we are already seeing it, how the world is.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] We turn to (in that same message)… It says on page 9 of this same message, [“LOOKING AT THE UNSEEN”]:
55 And the reason that I am on the field, today, in this move, is because, that, by faith. One night, yonder at Green’s Mill, Indiana, about ten years ago, an Angel of the Lord, Who had spoke to me [WSS] «Angel» from a child, spoke to me about these things. And I went out and connected myself. A lot of times I won’t believe in the things that they are doing, but yet, I believe, there lays the Church of the living God. And I would rather walk alone, with the few people that really believe God and take Him at His Word, than to be with millions who deny Him. Certainly! Their works would do it.
[JBP] Notice that there on Mount Transfiguration Jesus was there with Peter, James and John, and there Moses and Elijah appeared to them; and down there were a lot of people, they were not there with the One who was going to be adopted.
In other words, those who were there, they really believed in God and took Him in His Word. Not that the others didn’t believe in God, but at that moment the ones who were believing what God was doing and what God was carrying out were the ones who were there at that moment of adoption. The others, although they believed in God and believed that there were promises, they were not there at the precise moment that this was taking place up there. In other words, not even being close, they couldn’t hear. And many times they could be hearing and they could be seeing, and still not take the Word, as it says there:
 …and take Him at His Word, than to be with millions who deny Him.
[JBP] That is, you can be listening, and not be comprehending, understanding, and rather deny it. So it is a matter of being present, but it is also a matter of believing; of believing, of receiving and believing; it is not a matter of being present and not believing.
He goes on to say:
56 “Moses endured, as seeing Him Who is invisible.” And at the end of his life’s journey… Oh, I just love to say this!
57 Someone once said to me, he said, “Mr. Branham, do you think God was just, when He let Moses for forty years with those people, and then would refuse him to go into the promised land?” But the glorious part of the story of Moses, he was in the promised land, eight hundred years later, with Jesus and Elijah, and was seen on Mount Carmel [WSS] «Transfiguration».
58 Not only that, but at the end of the road, when he was standing on the mountain, waving good-bye to his people, and he had looked across Jordan, and he was a hundred and twenty years old, when his last breath begin to fail him, he climbed up on that smitten rock from the wilderness, and it was present, and he didn’t…He had a Angel pallbearers who took him somewhere and buried him, that the world knew nothing about it. Because, “He had endured, seeing the Invisible.”
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «Archangel Michael».

In the book of the prophet Daniel we find him, the Angel or Archangel Gabriel, working in the Divine Program in the midst of the gentiles for the changes of government or changes of empire among the gentiles. Gabriel announced the First Coming of Christ, and Reverend William Branham says he will announce the Second Coming of Christ [Quotations, page 33, paragraph 282].
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And let’s read that little part there; in the book of Quotations,3 page 33, paragraph 282, it says:
282 – “ And standing there was a Angel, the mighty Gabriel. He’s a messengers to the Jews. Remember, Gabriel announced the first coming of Christ; the Angel Gabriel will announce the second coming of Christ. The Bible said so.”
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «Gabriel = announces the 2nd Coming of Christ».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And our brother William goes on to say [“GOD’S HOUSE”]:
[WSS] So these Archangels intervene, not only with the Hebrew people, but with the gentiles also, for the changes of government; and they also have to do with the House of God of the New Covenant, which is the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ is the one that is waiting for the Second Coming of Christ with His Angels, where the ministries of the Angels —which are the ministries of Moses and Elijah— will accompany the Coming of the Lord, as it was shown on Mount Transfiguration, in Matthew, chapter 17, verses 1 to 13; according to what Christ promised them in Matthew, chapter 16, verses 26 to 28, when He says to them: “There are some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, until they have seen the Son of Man coming in His Kingdom.”
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Let’s stop for a moment here and let’s continue here reading from the message “LOOKING AT THE UNSEEN.” Look, it says:
 And in the hour of his death, the Invisible was there. I wonder, if he would have become pharaoh, if it would have been that way. Very doubtful. But he was sure when he took the right choice.
And you can be sure, by taking the right choice.
[JBP] He writes there: [WSS] «the dispensational prophets have Archangels that help them».
It goes on to say:
59 Joshua, forty years later…
[JBP] And he writes there: [WSS] «Rev. 12:1-7, 13:1-, 7:1-17, 11:1-19, 10:1-11, 14:1-9, 17:1-18, 19:11-21, 14:14-20».
[JBP] Look at all the Scriptures he places there.
Now, then, when he says:
59 Joshua, forty years later, after he had entered into the promised land, and the… being the great military general. When his first battle, his enemies had walled in to a place where there was no way for him to get to them. But by faith he looked at the Unseen, because God gave Moses a promise while they were yet in Egypt. “I have given you all Palestine.” And by faith he saw the walls of Jericho laying flat on the ground. And he marched around and around, in full armor, with not a doubt in his heart, but believing that God would do it. And when the trumpet sounded, and the people shouted, the walls fell and they took the city. Why? He seen the invisible One.
60 Remember, before he did this, he was walking one afternoon, and he seen a Man who was standing against the wall, with His sword drawed. And Joshua drawed his sword and went to meet Him. And he said, “Are you for us? Are you for the enemy?”
61 And the Man [WSS] «the Angel = Christ» spoke back and said, “I am the Captain [WSS] «Prince» of the Host of the Lord.” Joshua knowed the battle belonged to him then.
[JBP] And here he writes: [WSS] «Joshua».
And he also writes: [WSS] «The Prince of the Hosts».
He knew that the battle was his; in other words, he knew that he was going to win, to prevail in that battle; because he had that Prince, he had the Angel of the Lord, he had that powerful Archangel, those Archangels on his behalf.
In other words, how those prophets have that help from God, which move on the scene when there is a change of kingdom, a change of dispensation.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Our brother William continues saying, where we paused, it says [“GOD’S HOUSE”]:
[WSS] Therefore, what was shown on Mount Transfiguration…, remember that the Church is represented on a mountain. Therefore, comes into His Kingdom; for the Church, the believers in Christ, for two thousand years (about two thousand years), has been waiting for the Coming of the Lord with His Angels.
[JBP] It is what the Lord’s Church has been waiting for and what the Lord’s Church needs to know, needs to understand. And where is it that this great mystery of the Seventh Seal is being made known? In a Great Tent Cathedral.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] See the book of “THE SEVENTIETH WEEK OF DANIEL,”4 on page 70 of this version, it says:
114 Do you get it? [Congregation says, “Amen.”—Ed.] Oh, my! Now, Paul speaking. The time when the Seal of God is being made known, His Spirit, His Name, His grace, all these other great mysteries that’s going forth now, plans for His Church to go in the Rapture; the outpouring of the Holy Ghost has done this. That’s what He’s done in the last days.
[JBP] And he writes:
[WSS] «The Rapturing Faith».
[WSS] «7th Seal and the Name».
And he also draws a Star of David and he writes: [WSS] «When the Seal of God is being known».
[JBP] When is the Seal of God being made known? It is at this time, where this mystery is being opened, what the Seventh Seal is, is being made known.
Brother Branham opened six Seals. But look at the great blessing that the Church of the Lord has in this end time, in the fulfillment of The Great Tent Cathedral, where the Seventh Seal will be opened, the mystery of the Coming of the Son of Man with His Angels.
And that mystery is the one that is being made known; of which brother Branham spoke there that in a Great Tent Cathedral that mystery would be made known, and also the Name would be made known; and in a new way, in other words, a new form, it would also be working in those activities there. And everything would be in a simple way.
On that page 26, paragraph 216 [Quotations], the excerpt we read directly from the same message, but it is the excerpt that is placed there, he also writes: [WSS] «The New Name = in the Tent».
See how all that has to do with that ministry under Tent that would be made known in this end time; which is the opening of the Seventh Seal. And that is what will give the faith to be transformed and raptured to all those who will be in that place where Jesus was to be adopted, that is: on the Top of the Mount, with all the elements there, so that that will be a reality in this time; and be able to see what brother William says there [“GOD’S HOUSE”]:
[WSS] The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ is the one that is waiting for the Second Coming of Christ with His Angels, where the ministries of the Angels —which are the ministries of Moses and Elijah— will accompany the Coming of the Lord, as was shown on Mount Transfiguration…
[JBP] And all of that is in this end time fulfilled in all its fullness.
The prophets were a reflection, and types and figures of what would be His Coming.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Look at what in this same message, “LOOKING AT THE UNSEEN,” further on, he says:
120 Now, do you believe that that God is still the living God? Do you believe that we’re living in the last days of the Gentile dispensation? ([JBP] That is, in the last days. And he writes): [WSS] «Final last days of the Dispensation of Grace». And the churches are looking for Him to come? And do you believe He’s getting them ready for His Coming? The shadows of His Coming is cast upon the earth ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «We are in the shadows of what He will do in His Coming»; trouble, distress, perplexed of time.
121 And the shadow of His Coming is placed over His Church. And these things that we do in His Name are just a shadow of what He’ll do when He comes ([JBP] And he writes): [WSS] «God, Christ, reflected in William Marrion Branham. The type and figure of His Coming». When we see a child laying there, dying with leukemia, straightened back to life in five minutes, that’s a shadow of when He comes.
[JBP] Look how all of that reflected and is a shadow of what He is going to do in His Coming.
 The dust that’s in the earth shall rise in the beauty of youth again. This is just a shadow, but it’s to make you know that He’s coming. Let’s break loose and lay aside every fetter now.
[JBP] And that is where it ends but it is blurry (we will complete it later, when we look it up on the tape). But look at how he also still talks that…, he says:
 The dust that’s in the earth shall rise in the beauty of youth again.
[JBP] There he speaks of that new eternal and glorified body that He promised for each one of us, and that He will fulfill it in this end time.
Well, these are the little words that I am sending to all those who are gathered. And those I didn’t mention, I again reiterate that this greeting is for all.
And may God bless you greatly, may God keep you, and may He continue opening your understanding, may He continue opening the Scriptures to understand this great mystery of the Coming of the Son of Man with His Angels; which, those Archangels are directly in this change of dispensation that has taken place, which help us, will continue helping us, so that everything goes according to the Divine Program.
That is why when he writes there: [WSS] «the dispensational prophets have Archangels that help them»; and we know that one of them is the one that announced the First Coming of the Lord, and he will also announce the Second Coming, as he wrote there in the book of Quotations, he wrote:
[WSS] «Gabriel = announces the Second Coming of Christ».
May God bless you greatly, may God keep you; and may you continue to have a day full of great blessings.
