Let’s bow our heads just a moment now.

Lord, we are again gathering in for the service. And we think of the time, in the early days, when they all come up to Shiloh for the blessings of the Lord. And now, tonight, we have assembled here to hear Your Word. And as we have been studying in this certain portion of the Scripture, that the Lamb was the only One that could open the Seals, or to loose Them. And we pray that tonight, as we have under consideration this great Sixth Seal, we pray, Heavenly Father, that the Lamb will open It to us tonight. That, we are here to understand It. And when no man on earth, or in Heaven, was sufficient, only the Lamb was found sufficient. So may the all-sufficient One come and open the Seal for us tonight, that we might just look apast the curtain of time. It would help us, we believe, Father; this great, dark, sinful day that we’re living; would help us and give us courage. We trust now that we find grace in Your sight. We commit ourselves, with the Word, to You, in Jesus Christ’s Name. Amen.

You may be seated.

Good evening, friends. It’s a privilege to be here again tonight, to be in the service of the Lord. I was just a bit late. I just went to... on an emergency, of a dying man, of a member of this church; his mother is, or comes here. And they said the boy is dying right then. So I... I went down to see just a... a shadow of a man laying on a bed, dying, a man about my age. And in just a moment’s time, I seen a man rise to his feet, giving praise to the Lord. And so, God, if we will be willing to confess our sins and do that which is right, ask for mercy, call upon Him, God is willing and waiting to grant it to us.

And, now, I know it’s warm in here tonight. And... and it’s... No, I guess the heat is altogether shut off. And... and we’re...

I noticed last night, or today, this is my seventh day in a room without light, just electric lights, see; studying, and praying for God to open these Seals.

And there was so many that’s wrote, in that group of questioners la-... or questions last night, was, more or less, not as much as questions. It was wanting to have a healing service, anyhow; wanted to stay an extra day, to have a... to have healing service on Monday. So I... I... I would, could, I actually could do it if that was the... the will of the people that they would do that. You can think it over and let me know, but if you just want to stay and pray for the sick.

Because, I have designated all this time, completely, to these Seals, and just kept myself away for the Seals.

So you can think it over, and pray over it, and then let me know.

And I’ll, if the Lord willing, I can. My next appointment is at Albuquerque, New Mexico, and that’ll be a... a few days yet. And I have to go home for some business, on making another convention ready in Arizona. And so, then, if it be the will of the Lord! You pray over it, and I’ll do the same, then we’ll know more about it a little later.

And I just detect. Now I see... You go to talking about sickness, there it comes, see. I see this lady sitting right here. If something don’t help her, she ain’t going to stay here but a little bit. So, then, see, we... we just pray that God will. That’s what you’re here for, come way away. So, see, the... the Holy Spirit knows just everything, you see. So He...

But, see, I’ve tried to designate this time for these Seals, ’cause we set it for that, you see. But if there’s a ...

How many sick is here, anyhow, that come to be prayed for? Let’s see your hands, all around, everywhere. Oh, my! Hum! Well, how many would think that that would be right, the will of the Lord, to stay and have this, take Monday night, just pray for the sick, have a healing service Monday night? Would you like to do that? Could you do it? Well, Lord willing, we’ll do it then. See? We’ll... we’ll have prayer service for the sick, Wednesday, or, Sunday night, or, Monday night, and pray for the sick.

Now, I hope that don’t interrupt that group that I’m going back with, going back to Arizona. Brother Norman, is he here anywhere? Does that interrupt your program, Brother Norman, anything? [Brother Gene Norman says, “No."] Brother Fred and the rest of you, is that all right? [Others say, “All right.”] See? That’s okay. All right.

Then, the Lord willing, Monday night we pray for the sick, just one night set aside for that, altogether, just praying for the sick. Now, it won’t be any more of the Seals. If the Lord will just open these Seals, then we pray for the sick, Monday night.

Now, oh, I’ve been really enjoying this, tremendously, of serving the Lord under These! Have you enjoyed This, the opening of the Seals? [Congregation says, “Amen!"]

Now, we are now speaking from the Fifth Seal or, the Sixth Seal, rather. And that takes down now from the... the 12th verse of the 6th chapter, down to the 17th. It’s one of the long Seals. That’s a quite a bit of things happen here.

And now the... Tell a little review of last night, kind of back up a little, each time.

And, say, I... I want to say something, too. I found, in that box, four or five very important things to me. I was told that... And I certainly want to apologize. Is the tapes on? Tape is on? I want to apologize to my minister brethren and to you people here. They say, the other night when I was speaking of... of Elijah, at that hour of when they was... He thought he was the only one was going to be in the Rapture, or he only one going to be saved. I... I said seven hundred instead of seven thousand. Is that right? [Congregation says, “Yes."] Well, I’m sure sorry of that, folks. I... I... I knowed better than that. It was just simply a mumble of speech, because I knowed it was seven thousand. I just didn’t say it right. I... And I... I thank you. And that means that...

I’m glad that you’re watching what I say. And you see, then, that’s... Cause, it, it’s... it’s seven thousand.

I got two or three notes on it, that said, “Brother Branham, I believe you were mistaken.” It said, “Wasn’t they seven thousand instead of seven hundred?”

I thought, “Surely I didn’t say seven hundred.” See? That, and then I... Billy...

And then I, first thing you know, I picked up another note. It said, “Brother Branham, you was... I believe you said seven hundred.”

And one person said, “Brother Branham, was that a... a spiritual vision that... that there is just going to be a type, and you’re typing it with the seven... ?” Puts people on edge when you go to thinking these things, see. And it’s enough, that, it puts me on the edge.

Something happened today when this Seal was revealed, that I had to walk completely out in the yard, just walk around, out in the yard a little while. That’s right. It just simply almost took my breath right away from me. See? So you talk, a tension? Oh, my! See?

Another thing, see, you’re laying right onto what I say. And God is going to hold me responsible for what I tell you. See? And so I... I must absolutely be as sure as all sure can be sure, see, of these things, because this is a... a tremendous time that we’re living in. Yeah.

I was thinking about the healing service for Monday night. That would interfere with you, Brother Neville anywhere? [Brother Neville says, “Not a thing. I’d be right here."] That’s fine.

Precious Brother Neville! I tell you, they just... they just made one, I think, then lost the pattern. It’s a... He certainly has been a... a real chum and friend to me, I’ll tell you.

The tabernacle now built, and got the Sunday school rooms and everything ready, in order here. And some of you people that’s around here, around Jeffersonville, want to come to the church, you got a nice place, and a place to come, Sunday school rooms.

Fine teacher, and Brother Neville here, for the adult class, and a real pastor. I don’t say that for a bouquet to him, but I’d rather give him a little rose now than a whole wreath after he’s gone. And Brother... Brother Neville, I’ve knowed him since I was just a boy. Now, he hasn’t changed one bit. He is still Orman Neville, just like he always was.

I remember visiting. Even he had grace enough to ask me to his pulpit when he was a Methodist preacher down here in the city. And we had a nice congregation down there in Clarksville, the... I guess that’s called Howard Park, Harrison Avenue Methodist church. I think that’s where he must have found you, down there, Sister Neville. Down there, because she was a mem-...

I come back up, and I said to the church here, I said, “That was... That’s one of the nicest men! And one of these days I’m going to baptize him in the Name of the Lord Jesus.” It happened.

Here he is. And now he’s my chum, right along my side. And such an honorable, respectable man! He’s always stood by me just like... just as close as he could stand. Whatever I say, he just lays right with me and hangs right along. Even when he first come in, he didn’t understand the Message then, but he believed It and he stayed right with It. That’s honor, that’s respects, to a brother like that. I can’t say enough for him. And now the Lord bless him. All right.

Now a little preview of last evening, in the breaking of the Fifth Seal. We won’t go all the way back tonight, just back far enough to get the... the Fifth Seal.

Now, we find out that there was the antichrist that rode on, and wound himself up, from three powers. All went into one power, and rode the pale horse, “Death,” into a bottomless pit, into perdition, where it come from. And then we find out when the...

The Scripture says, “When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of God raises up a standard against it.” And we seen it perfectly vindicated in the Word last night, for there was four Beasts that... that answered to the... the four times that this rider rode.

And he rode a different horse each time, a white horse, and then a red horse, and a black horse, and then a pale horse. And we found out, those colors, and what they were and what they did. Then take it right back into the ages of the churches, and exactly that’s what it done, just perfectly.

Therefore, you see, when the Word of God blends together, that mean It’s correct, you see. Yeah. I believe, anything that hooks with the Word of God is always “amen.” See?

Now, like a person said they had a vision, and said that it was. Oh, they know the Lord give it, because it come with great power. Well, the vision might be all right. But if it isn’t with the Word, and contrary to the Word, just isn’t right. See?

Now, now there may be present, some Mormon brethren or sister. And there may be some get these tapes, now. And I don’t want to say that... Some of the finest people I and you want to meet, would be... be in the Mormon people; very fine type of people. And then their... their prophet, Joseph Smith, that the Methodist people killed here in Illinois, on their journey over. And so then that... that fine man, and the vision, I don’t doubt at all but what he had the vision. I believe he was a sincere man. But the vision he had was contrary to the Scripture. See? Therefore, they had to have a Mormon Bible, to... to make it. See?

This is It here, to me. This is. That’s the reason, just the Word. That’s It. See?

One time, a... a... a minister came here from a foreign country, and he... And I seen him out with a... a... riding around in a car, with which is not... with a... a lady. And they come to a meeting. And I found out, they had drove two or three days, just he and she, in the meeting, to come to the meeting, together. And the woman had been married, three or four different times.

And this minister walked up in the hotel lobby where I was, and run over and shook hands with me. And I shook his hand, raised up and was talking to him. I asked him, I said, “When you are free, could I speak to you in my room just a moment?”

He said, “Certainly, Brother Branham.”

I took him to the room. And I said to the minister, I said, “Reverend, sir, you’re a stranger in this land.” I said, “But this lady has quite a name.” I said, “Aren’t, or, you come all the way from such-and-such a place, down to this such-and-such a place?”

Said, “Yes, sir.”

And I said, “Aren’t you afraid that that will kind of... ? I... I don’t... not doubting you, but don’t you think that will reflect on your reputation as a minister? Don’t you think we should put a little better example than that?”

And he said, “Oh, this lady is a saint.”

I said, “I... I don’t doubt that.” But I said, “But, brother, the thing of it is, everybody that looks at her is not a saint, see, that looks at what you’re doing.” And I said, “I believe you better be careful. That’s just one brother to another.” And he said... I said, “The lady has been married four or five times now.”

And he said, “Yes, I know that.” Said, “You know, I... I...“

I said, “You don’t teach that in your church at home, do you, for that?”

So said, “No. But,” said, “you know, I had a vision of it, Brother Branham.”

I said, “Well, that’s fine.” I said...

He said, “Do you mind?” Said, “I believe I could straighten you out a little bit on your teaching about that.”

And I said, “All right.” And he... I said, “I... I... I would be glad to know it, sir.”

And he said, “Well,” said, “you know, in this vision,” he said, “I was asleep.”

And I said, “Yeah.” I seen, then, it was a dream. See?

And he said, “My... my wife,” said, “she had been living with another man,” and said, “and running around on me.” And said, “Then she come to me, and she said to me, ‘Oh, darling, forgive me, forgive me!’ Said, ‘I... I... I... I’m sorry I did it. I’ll be true from now on.’” Said, “Course, I loved her so much, I just forgive her, said, ‘All right.’” And said, “Then...“

And said, “Do you know what? Then I got the interpretation of this vision.” Said, “That was the woman.” Said, “Sure, she has been married, and... and so forth, and all these times.” And said, that, “It’s all right for her to marry, because the Lord loved her so much. She can marry as many times as she wants to, far as...“

I said, “Your vision was mighty sweet, but it was way off of the beaten path here.” I said, “That’s... that’s wrong, see. You shouldn’t do that.”

So that... See?

But when you see Scripture dovetailing with Scripture, making it a constant continuity where they come together. The Scriptures, where This one leaves off here, This other one over here comes and dovetails in, and draws the whole picture out.

Like putting a crossword puzzle together, like. You find the piece that fits in. There is nothing else can fit it. Then you’re getting the picture fixed.

And there’s only One can do that, that’s the Lamb, and so we’re looking to Him.

But we find that when these, this rider, he was one rider that rode these horses. And then we chased him right down, seen what he done and everything, and found out, back in the church ages that’s exactly what he did.

Then when he went out on a certain beast and done a certain thing, we find out that there was one sent to combat what he did.

Kein Übersetzungstext von BerFra vorhanden

There was one sent for the first age, of lamb... of lion. That was the Word, of course, Christ.

Next was the ox, during the time of the dark age, when... when the... the church had organized and had accepted dogmas instead of the Word.

And remember, the whole thing is based on two things: one, an antichrist; the other one, of Christ.

It’s still the same thing today. There is no halfway Christians. There is no drunk-sober man; no black-white birds; no, no; no sinner-saints. No. You’re either a sinner or a saint. See? There is just no in-between. You’re either born again or you’re not born again. You’re either filled with the Holy Spirit or you’re not filled with the Holy Spirit. No matter how many sensations you had, if you ain’t filled with the Holy Spirit, you’re not filled with It. See? And if you have been filled with It, your life shows it, goes right up to It. See? Nobody has to tell anybody about it. They see it, see, ’cause It’s a Seal.

Now, and we find those beasts, how they rode each time. One sent out on his ministry, in political powers, uniting religious powers and... and political powers, together. We find out, God sent out His power to combat it. We go right back and see what the church age was, and looked back; and there it was, just exactly that way.

Then we find out, another age come along, and the enemy sent out the antichrist under the name of religion, under the Name of Christ, under the name of the Church. Yes, sir. Went out under the name of the Church, even. “That was the real Church,” he said. See?

Antichrist is not Russia. Antichrist is not that.

Antichrist is so close like real Christianity, till, the Bible said, “It would fool everything that wasn’t predestinated.” That’s right.

Kein Übersetzungstext von BerFra vorhanden

The Bible said that, “In the last days, everything that wasn’t predestinated, the Elect.” It says, “The Elect!” Now, anybody, take that word and run it back in your margin, you see what it means. It says, “The elected, predestinated.” See? “It’ll fool every one of them whose names were not on the Lamb’s Book of Life from the foundation of the world.”

When the Lamb was slain, the names were put on the Book. He is standing in the Holy Place tonight, in Glory, as an Intercessor, making intercessions for every one of those souls whose name is on that Book. And nobody knows that name but Him. He is the One that’s got the Book in His hand, and He knows. When that last one comes in, then His intercessing days is over. He comes forth then to claim what He has interceded for. He is doing the Kinsman Redeemer work now; and comes forth to receive His Own. Oh, my!

That ought to set every Christian to... to searching himself, and holding his hands before God, and saying, “Cleanse me, O Lord! Look into my life, and... and let me... let me see where my bad part is. Let me get it out of the way, right quick.” “For if the righteous be scarcely saved, where will the sinner and the ungodly appear?” It’s checking-up time.

And if you would place it, and want to... and give this Word. (Now, I don’t want to, to ask me a question on this, ’cause it get me plumb over on another; I mean, in writing your questions. I think the questions done in, anyhow.) This is the time of the investigation judgment. That’s right. Now, we’ll get that on the... on the Trumpets when we come to that, whenever the Lord provides, or the Vials, and we’ll find out on that investigating judgment, when just before the Woes went forth. And... and we see that that is true. And the three Angels that struck the earth, crying, you know, “Woe! Woe! Woe unto the inhabitants of the earth!”

And we’re living in a terrific time, a 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 in the Tribulation period. And I think it ought to be truly settled in every believer’s heart, that this Church never takes a Tribulation period. You cannot put, nowhere, the Church in Tribulation. I... You put the church there, but not the Bride. See, the Bride has gone on.

Cause, see, She, 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 is 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!

I think of a little story; if I’m not taking too much of your time now, in this preliminary. I’m... I... I do this for a purpose, to feel, till I feel the Spirit just right, to start.

This is a... this is a sacred thing. See? It’s, see, who knows them things there? Nobody but God. And they’re not supposed to be revealed, and proved in the Bible that they would not be revealed, till this day. That’s exactly right. See? They was... they was guessed at; but now we’re supposed to get it exactly, the Truth, vindicated Truth. See?

Notice. Now, there was a... a little girl in the west, that how she had... she had fell in love with a... A man had fell in love with her. As a buyer of the cattle, come out there for the Armour Company. And... and they had a... a great...

The boss come one day, the boss’s son from Chicago, and, course, they put them on a regular, western frontier. The... the girls there, they dressed up; each one was going to get this boy, sure, you know, ’cause that was the main man’s boy. So, they dressed in their western frontier.

And... and they do that out west.

They just got through one of those episodes. And Brother Maguire, I think he’s here now, they caught him downtown without his western clothes on, and they throwed him in the... in the jail. And put him in a kangaroo court, and made him pay for it, and then made him go buy a western outfit. And I seen the rest of them walking around with guns about that long, hanging on them. They just go native out there. They’re trying to live in something in the back-gone days, bygone. See?

And then, in Kentucky, you’re trying to live in a bygone days of the east here, still back in Renfro Valley and things. You like to go back to the old days. There is something causing that.

But when it comes back, to go back to a Gospel in the original, you don’t want to do that. You want something modern, you see. Goes to show that, see, you... you... there’s a ...

And what makes a... a man do wrong? What makes him drink and carry on, or a woman do wrong? Is because she is trying to... There is something in her, thirsting. There is something in him, thirsting. And they’re trying to quench that holy thirst with the things of the world. When, God ought to be that quench. He made you that way, to thirst. That’s the reason you thirst for something. God made you that way, so you would turn that holy thirst to Him. See? But when you try to quench that thirst... How dare anybody to do that! You have no right to do that, to try to quench that holy thirst that you thirst for something, and, then, and you turn it in to the world, try to satisfy it with the world. You can’t do it. There’s only one thing will fill that up, and that’s God. And He made you that way.

So, this... this young girls put on a... a regular western carry-on for this boy when he... he come out. And each one of them was sure they was going to get this boy.

There was a little cousin there on the ranch, and she was an orphan, and so she just done all the... the work for these. Cause, they had to have their fingernails fixed, you know, and they couldn’t wash the dishes for the hands and things. And she done all the real hard work.

And then, finally, when the boy came, they went out and got him in an old western style, the buckboard. And they come in, shooting their guns and carrying on, you know, and acting up. And that night they had a great big dance out there, on a... on an old-fashion dance, and all the ranchers around, about, and coming in with their dancing, and so forth. And, first thing you know, why, this went on, was jubilee for two or three days.

Then, one night, this boy stepped out, till... of the place, just to rest a while from the dance, and got away from these girls. And he happened to look, going down towards the corral. There went a little girl, kind of ragged-looking. And she had a dishpan full of water, she washed the dishes. And he thought, “I never seen her before. I... I wonder where she come from?” So he just puts it in his way to go around beside of the... the bunkhouse, and go down there and come back, side of the corral, and met her.

She was barefooted. She stopped. She held her head down. She seen who it was, and she was very shy. She knew this great person. And she was just a cousin to these other girls. Their father was foreman on this big Armour outfit, so they kept... She kept looking down. She was ashamed of being barefooted.

He said, “What’s your name?” She told him. Said, “Why ain’t you out there to the... where the rest of them is?” And she kind of made excuses.

And so, the next night, he watched for her again. Finally... He was sitting out there. And they all got to carrying on, everything. He... he sit on the corral fence and watched for her to come, throw the dishwater out. And he watched her. And he said to her, he said, “You know my real purpose of being here?”

She said, “No, sir, I don’t.”

Said, “My purpose of being here is hunting a wife.” He said, “I find a character in you that they don’t have.” I was thinking of the Church, you see. Said, “Will you marry me?”

She said, “Me? Me? I... I can’t think of such a thing, me.”

See, that’s the main boss’s son. He owned all the companies and ranches throughout the country, and everything, you see. Said, said, “Yes.” Said, “I... I couldn’t find one in Chicago. I... I want a real wife. I want a wife with character. And the thing that I’m looking for, I see it in you.” Said, “Will you marry me?”

She said, “Well...“ It startled her. And she said, “Yes.”

And he said, “Well...“ Told her he would be back. Said, “Now, you just make yourself ready, and a year from today I’ll be back. Well... And I’ll get you, and I’ll take you away from here. You won’t have to work like this no more. I’ll take you. And I’ll go to Chicago, and I’ll build you a home like you’ve never seen.”

She said, “I don’t, never... never had a home. I’m an orphan,” she said.

He said, “I’ll build you a home, a real one.” Said, “I’ll be back.”

He kept in track with her, during the time, the year. She worked everything that she could do, to save enough money at her dollar-a-day, or whatever she had with her board, to buy her wedding dress. Perfect type of the Church! See? See? She got her garments ready.

And, you know, when she displayed this wedding garment, her... her cousins said, “Why, you poor, silly kid. You mean to think that a man like that would have anything to do with you?”

She said, “But he promised me.” Amen. Said, “He has promised.” Said, “I believe his word.”

“Oh, he was just making a fool out of you.” Said, “If he’d have got somebody, he’d have got one of them.”

“Yes,” said, “but he promised me. I’m looking for it.” Amen. I am, too.

So, kept getting later and later. The day finally arrived, certain hour he was to be there, so she dressed in her garment. And she hadn’t even heard from him. But she knowed he would be there, so she dressed up in her wedding clothes, got things ready.

Well, then they really did laugh there. Cause, the main boss had sent up to the... to the foreman, or... or to... Ain’t none of the girls had heard nothing about it, so it was just all a mysterious thing to them.

That is, too. It sure is. But this girl, just in face of all of it, upon the basis of his word that he would be back for her.

So, they got to laughing. And put their hands around one another, and dancing around her. Said, “Ha!” Laugh, you know, like that, said, “Poor, little, silly kid!”

She just stood there, not a bit of blush in her. She was holding her flowers. And her wedding garment all fixed; she had struggled, you know. “His Bride has made Herself ready.” See? She kept holding her flowers, waiting.

They said, “Now, I told you it was wrong. See, he ain’t coming.”

Said, “I got five more minutes.” Said, “He’ll be here.”

Oh, they just laughed!

And just about time the old clock ticked up to five minutes, they heard the horses galloping, sand rolling under the wheels. The old buckboard stopped.

She jumped from between them, and out the door. And he jumped out of the carriage, and she flew into his arms. He said, “It’s all over now, honey.” Left her little old cousin denominations sitting there, looking. She... she went to Chicago, to her home.

I know of another great promise like that, too, yet. “I’ve gone to prepare a place for you; coming back to receive you.” They might be saying we’re crazy. But, brother, to me, right now, and these Seals breaking like this, under this supernatural thing, I can almost hear the sound, as that clock of time ticks away into Eternity there. I can almost see that Angel standing there and saying, at the last of that seventh angel’s Message, “Time shall be no more.” That little, loyal Bride will fly away into the arms of Jesus one of these days, be taken to the Father’s House. Let’s think of these things as we go along now.

Notice the ministry of the lion, the Word; the ox, the labor and sacrifice; the cunningness, of the reformers; and the... the eagle age, coming in, that’s to reveal and pick up these things and show them.

Now we find out, in last night’s service, also, the great mystery opened with this Seal, which was absolutely contrary to my former understanding. Just presuming that it was right.

I always allowed them souls under the altar to be the early Christian martyrs. But we found out, last night, when the Lord God broke that Seal for us, it absolutely is impossible. It wasn’t them. They were gone on to Glory, plumb on the other side, and there they was. We find out that they were Jews that would come up during the time, where the...

From the calling now, of the hundred and forty-four thousand, which we get into tonight and tomorrow. And... and between the Sixth and Seventh Seal, the hundred and forty-four thousand is called.

And then we find out, that they were martyrs that had been killed, and yet had not been... Had white robes on, but their names had been on the Lamb’s Book of Life. And they were given white robes, each one of them.

And we took that. And it’s nothing in the world, I don’t believe, but that bunch of the... the Jews that’s went through a pre-tribulation period. When, during the time of this last wars, they were... they’ve... They’re got to be hated by everybody. And Eichmann killed millions of them in Germany. You just heard the trial. Millions of innocent people slain, Jews, just because they were Jews; no other reason.

The Bible said here, that, “They were slain for their testimony of God, for the... the Word of God, and the testimony they held.” Now we find out that the Bride was the Word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. These had no testimony of Jesus Christ.

And we find out that the Bible says, that, “All of Israel, the predestinated Israel, will be saved,” Romans 11. Now we know that. And there we seen them souls.

Now look how close. Why couldn’t this be before? Because it hadn’t happened before. Now you can see it, you see. See, the great Holy Spirit, seeing those things coming down through the... the ages and times. And now it’s being revealed, and then you look there and see that’s the Truth. There is where it’s at.

Now, it was... it was the martyrs in the tribulation, or the pre-tribulation, of Eichmann. Now, they only type the martyrs of the hundred and forty-four thousand, which we’re entering into, between the Sixth and Seventh Seal. See?

And the Seventh Seal is just one thing, that’s all, and this, “It was silence in Heaven for a space of a half hour.” And now only God can reveal that. It’s not even symbolized, nowhere. That’s tomorrow night. Pray for me. See?

Now, we notice now, as we go into the Sixth Seal. Now may the Heavenly Father help us as we settle down now to this Sixth Seal. Now this 12th verse of the 6th chapter:

And I beheld when he... opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;

And the stars of heaven fell unto... earth, even as a fig tree casts her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.

And the heavens departed as a scroll when it’s rolled together; and every mountain and every island were moved out of their places.

And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bond-... and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;

Notice there? Look at them, “mighty men,” see. What had they done? “They had received the wine of the wrath of the fornication of the harlot.” See? That’s exactly the same class that drank of her wine. See?

And 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:

For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

What an introduction to... See, the rider’s now, the rider’s beasts, and the answering Beasts, have 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 Christian faith... or in... 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.

Remember, He deals with Israel as a nation, always. It’s the nation of Israel.

The Gentiles, as individuals, “people taken from the Gentiles.” And it had to, the Gentile, had to make... made up of all the people of the world, so now and then there is a Jew comes into that. See? Just like an... like a Arabian, and an 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 seventieth week, He deals with them as a nation, the Gentiles are finished. The hour is soon arriving, and may be yet this... 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, the times are over.” Yes, sir!

And then, “Let him that’s filthy stay filthy; let him that’s righteous be righteous.” See?

There is no more Blood on the seat of the... of the... of the sanct-... in the sanctuary, at all. There is 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 has done left the... 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. A Lamb that had been slain, a bloody One, been killed, bruised, come forth and took the Book out of His hand. That’s, the days are finished. Now He is coming to claim what He has redeemed. Amen! That just sends something through me!

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 has been doing great things, like healing the sick, and open the eyes of the blind, and doing great work.

But we find out, here, that nature took a tumble, yes, all nature. Look what taken place, “The... the earthquake; 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.

Now you see we’re right close into that hour now. We 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 is 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, done redeemed Her. See, it’s kind of a... That’s His Own selection, His Own choice, like any man takes his bride. See?

Now, the earthquake... Let us compare Scriptures now. I... I want... Have you got a pencil and paper with you? I want you to do something for me. As you want to write, write this, ’cause, unless you’re going to take the tape. Now we... I want you to read with me, as you do.

Compare Scriptures of this great event, that we will see that this great secret, or mystery, that was under the Sixth Seal of the Book of Redemption. Now remember, these are hidden mysteries. And the six Seals, all together, is one great big Book, just six scrolls rolled together, and it unwinds the whole Book of Redemption. That’s how the whole earth was redeemed.

That’s the reason John wept, because, if no one could get that Book, all creation, everything was gone. She would just simply turn back to... to... to atoms and molecules, and so forth, and cosmic light, and not even be creation, person, nothing else. Cause, Adam lost the rights of that Book. He forfeited it when he listened to his wife, and she listened to Satan’s reasonings, instead of the Word of God. See? It was forfeited.

Then, it couldn’t go back into the dirty hands of Satan, who tempted her out of the way, so therefore it went back to its original owner, like any abstract deed would do, see. Goes right back to its original owner, and that was God, the Creator, Who made it. And He holds it.

And there’s a price, and that’s redemption. There is some price for redemption, and there was nobody could do it. So, He said, made His laws, His Own laws of a Kinsman Redeemer. Then, they could find nobody. Every man was born of sex, born after sexual desire; he was in the original sin, Satan and Eve, so he could not do it. There is nothing in him. No holy pope, priest, Doctor Divinity, whoever he might be, he would nobody worthy. And he couldn’t be an Angel, because it had to be a Kinsman. He had to be a man.

Then God Himself become a Kinsman, by taking on a human flesh, through the virgin birth. And He shed His Blood.

That wasn’t the blood of a Jew. It wasn’t the blood of a Gentile. It was the Blood of God. See? The Bible said, “We’re saved through the Blood of God.”

The child takes the father’s blood. We know it. Anything in the male sex produces the hemoglobin. So we find out, like the hen laying the egg; she can lay an egg, but if the rooster, or the mate, hasn’t been with her, it won’t hatch. It’s not fertile. The woman is only the incubator that carries the egg. But the egg come... The germ comes from the male.

And, in this case, the male was God Himself.

That’s how I say, how up is down, and... and big is little. God was so great till He become, even formed Himself in such a teeny thing, to a little teeny germ into the womb of a virgin. And around there He developed the cells and the Blood. And was born, and raised on earth. And from that kind of a start, unadulterated, no sex desire to it, at all.

And then He gave that Blood, because He become a kinfolks to us. And He was the Kinsman Redeemer. And He shed that Blood, freely. He didn’t have to. He give It freely, to redeem.

Then He goes upon the altar of God, and waits there, while God holds the Book of Redemption in His hands. And the bloody Lamb stands on the altar of sacrifice. There is the Lamb, to make redemption, making intercession.
