The Rapture of the Seventh Seal

Good evening, beloved friends and brethren present here in Gaitan. It is a great blessing to be with you to share some moments of fellowship around the Word of God and His Program relevant to this end time.

For which I want to read in Revelation, chapter 8, verse 1 to 5, where it tells us the following:

“And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.

And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.

And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.

And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand.

And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.”

“THE RAPTURE OF THE SEVENTH SEAL.”

The Seventh Seal, which was opened in Heaven and caused silence in Heaven, there was silence in Heaven for about half an hour; the mystery of this Seventh Seal by being opened in Heaven, in the Book of Redemption, in that Book sealed with seven seals that appears in Revelation, chapter 5, verse 1 and on, where it says:

“And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.

And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?

And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.

And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.

And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.

And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.

And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.

And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;

And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.”

Now, notice this Book sealed with seven seals, which in Revelation, chapter 5, is at the right hand of the one sitting on the Throne, that is, of God; and then when the time comes for that Book to be opened, and a person is asked to present himself before God and take that little Book and open it in Heaven; and there was no one worthy, not even in Heaven, nor on Earth, nor below the Earth, to take that Book and open those Seven Seals.

The archangels of God were in Heaven, and they are worthy; the patriarchs and all these people were there; but a man worthy of taking that Book was required, a close family member, who was represented in Boaz, the one who redeemed Ruth.

And now, a man who had come to this planet Earth without sin was needed, a man who came by divine creation and not by the union of father and mother; not through human conception, but rather through a divine conception, a divine creation; and we find that person in our beloved Lord Jesus Christ, because He came by divine creation, His physical body.

And now it was asked for a man to take that Book and open those Seals, but for him to be a man worthy who came to Earth without sin; and the only one, notice, was Jesus; because Adam came without sin, but then he sinned and he lost the right to God’s inheritance.

And this Title Deed, we find that Adam lost the right to that Title Deed, and now Adam could not eat that Book of the Seven Seals. Notice what it meant to eat in the Garden of Eden: In Revelation, chapter 5 and chapter 10, it is to eat that Title Deed, and that is to eat of the Tree of Life, eat of Christ, because Christ is the Tree of Life.

And now, notice how no one in Heaven, nor on Earth, nor below the Earth was worthy of taking that Book and opening the Seals, no human being was worthy of even looking at that Book, except for one: Jesus Christ, and He did no appear.

He was in the Most Holy Place making intercession upon the Mercy Seat or seat of mercy there in Heaven, and He could not leave that place until the very last elect entered into the Mystical Body of Christ; and that is why, although the call is being made in Heaven, of a person who is worthy and to take that Book and open it, no one worthy appeared in Heaven; and Jesus, being the only one worthy, didn’t appear, because He was still in the place of intercession, making intercession for the last elect of God.

In clearer words, Jesus Christ was very busy making intercession for the last elect of His Mystical Body, of the Church; in other words, for the last elect of the Age of the Cornerstone, which are the last elect of the Mystical Body of Christ. Therefore, He was very busy making intercession, for whom? For each one of you and for me as well; He was making intercession for the last elect of God, which are the elect of the Age of the Cornerstone.

And notice, until the very last elect of God enters into the Mystical Body of Christ, He cannot leave the Throne of Intercession to take the Book and make the reclamation there in Heaven.

Because anyone who doesn’t enter the Divine Program before Christ leaves the Throne of Intercession, every person who does not enter before Christ leaves that place, will remain with his sins, because he will not have a way of washing his sins, because Christ will have already left the Throne of Intercession in Heaven.

Now, this Book of the Seven Seals has been fulfilled from age to age; and in terms of its fulfillment, it has been opened in terms of its fulfillment, but it has been at the right hand of God. That Book sealed with seven seals has been in the hand of God like a blueprint; and God, who knows the content of that Book, has been working from stage to stage, from age to age, and has been fulfilling the content of that Book.

Before that Book is taken by Christ in Heaven and opened in Heaven, that Divine Program that is in those Seals must be fulfilled here on Earth; and at the end, then the Hebrews will enter; and when they enter, Christ, notice, is or will be already manifested in a new stage.

Now, before Christ leaves the Throne of Intercession and the dead in Christ are translated or raptured to Heaven, before that, the Hebrew people will see the glory of God manifested in His Church; and the Hebrew people will see Christ, the Angel of the Covenant manifested in His Angel Messenger in human flesh, at the Last Day, and they will cry out: “This is the one we are waiting for.”

Because when Hebrew rabbis are asked about the Coming of the Lord, the Coming of the Messiah, they testify that they are waiting for the Coming of the Messiah; but when they are asked: “What do you expect to receive when you receive the fulfillment of the Coming of the Messiah?”, well what they are expecting to receive is a prophet in their midst, a prophet anointed with the Spirit of God, the Holy Spirit, a prophet in whom the Angel of the Covenant is, the Angel of the Lord manifested in human flesh. They are waiting for the Coming of the Word in human flesh, the Coming of the Word in human flesh at this end time; and that is the same thing that has been promised for the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The forerunner of the Second Coming of Christ said about the Coming of the Lord… He said on page 256 in Spanish, he said to us referring to the passage of Revelation 19 (the white horse Rider of Revelation 19, who comes and his name is called The Word of God, and on his thigh and on his garments, a name written: King of kings and Lord of lords)… Now, what did the forerunner of the Second Coming of Christ said would be the Coming of that white horse Rider of Revelation 19? Page 256 of The Sealsin Spanish says1:

“But when our Lord appears here on earth, He’ll be riding on a snow-white horse. And He’ll be completely, fully, the Emmanuel, the Word of God incarnate in a Man.”

And now, notice how this mystery of the Seventh Seal is: It is the mystery of the white horse Rider of Revelation 19 coming, and that is the Word incarnate in a man. That is what has been promised for the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ: The Coming of the Word incarnate in a man; that is the Seventh Seal for all the sons and daughters of God.

On page 472 of the book of The Sealsin Spanish, it says2:

“Notice now, for the end-of-time Message, this Seal. After all, He has revealed all the six Seals, but He don’t say nothing about the Seventh. And the end-time Seal, when It starts, will be absolutely a total secret, according to the Bible…”

When the Seventh Seal begins, when the fulfillment of the Seventh Seal beings, it will be what? It will be something completely secret, according to the Bible; because He said that no one knew when would be the day or hour in which the Son of Man would come.3

Now, notice how at the beginning of the Seventh Seal, in terms of its fulfillment, the start of the Seventh Seal would be a mystery; but the Seventh Seal would continue onward carrying out the fulfillment of the divine promises relevant to this end time.

Now, the forerunner of the Second Coming of Christ continues saying:

“…before knowing That. And remember, Revelation 10:1-7, 1 to 7, chapter 10:1 to 7, ‘At the end of the seventh angel’s Message, all the mysteries of God would be known.’ We’re at the end time, the opening of the Seventh Seal.

The other day, last Sunday, a week ago today, when I was preaching on ‘Be humble! Be humble! Remember, God deals in little things.’ I didn’t realize what it really was talking about. And now I see it. It is in such a humble way! You would think that something like that would be revealed to the Vatican or… But It comes just like John the Baptist. It comes like the birth of our Lord, in a stable. Glory to God! So help me, the hour is at hand! Amen! We’re here. Oh, my!”

Now notice how he speaks to us of the Coming of the Son of Man for the end time, the Coming of the Lord, and he compares the time and fulfillment of the Second Coming of Christ with the coming of John the Baptist and the coming of Jesus. Because the Son of Man with His Angels will be manifested here on Earth in the fulfillment of the Second Coming of Christ, but how will the fulfillment of this great promise be? It will be like John the Baptist came and how our Lord Jesus Christ came.

The fulfillment of the Coming of the Son of Man comes like John the Baptist came. John the Baptist came with whose ministry? Elijah’s in his third manifestation; and the fulfillment of the Seventh Seal comes with the fulfillment of Elijah in his fifth manifestation, and with the fulfillment of Moses in his second manifestation and with the fulfillment of the ministry of Christ for a second occasion. These three great ministries will be manifested here on Earth under the opening of the Seventh Seal.

And now, notice how the Seventh Seal is identified with the Coming of the Lord, because the Seventh Seal is what?

In the book of The Sealsin Spanish, page 469, the forerunner of the Second Coming of Christ, speaking of thisgreat cloud that appeared on February 28, 1963 over the Arizona skies…, which if we turn it thisway, towards your right, it forms the face of the Lord Jesus Christ; and there the seven angels of the seven ages form the beard of the Lord; and the Angel who was different from the rest, who is up here, forms the white hair of the Lord.

And now, notice how in these symbolisms we find that everything that was shown in Revelation, chapter 1: The Son of Man with His face like the sun, with His head and His white hair like white wool, His eyes like flames of fire, His feet like fine brass, and from His mouth a sharp sword; all of those are the symbols of the things that will be fulfilled in the Coming of the Son of Man; because the Son of Man will come with His Angels, and then He will pay each one according to their works.4

Therefore, He comes with His Angels, He comes with the ministries of Moses and Elijah, who will be manifested here on Earth for the Last Day, Elijah for a fifth time and Moses for a second time.

And now, what does the forerunner of the Second Coming of Christ say that the ministry of Elijah is? When he was asked question 11 on page 399 [The Seals], which reads5:

“Is the Elijah, who comes to preach to the Jews (oh, yes), the real man who lived on earth, or will he be spirit of Elijah in some other man?

(The answer was):

I’m inclined to believe that it will be anointed men, of their spirit. Because, see, there, when Elijah had ascended and Elisha came across the sons of the prophets he says, ‘Does not… on Elisha? Does not the spirit of Elijah rest on Elisha?’ See, ‘the spirit of Elijah.’ And he done just like Elijah did, see.”

Notice, he opened the Jordan just as prophet Elijah had done; and when they saw that, they said: “The spirit of Elijah has rested upon Elisha.” That is what Elisha asked for, for a double portion of the spirit that was in Elijah to come upon him (that is, upon Elisha); and his petition was granted.

Now, the Elijah who comes to preach to the Jews will be according to what the forerunner of the Second Coming of Christ says: he will be a man anointed, of this time, with that spirit.

“I’m inclined to believe that it will be anointed men, of their spirit.”

Now we can see how each time that God manifests a ministry of a prophet who He already manifested in the past, when He manifests it for a second time, it is a man… [Power outage].

We have seen that the Elijah who will preach to the Hebrew people ⏤which is the ministry of Elijah manifested in another man, it is the ministry of Elijah, the spirit of Elijah anointing a man of this time⏤it will be a man anointed with that ministerial spirit of Elijah, in whom the Spirit of God will be, the Holy Spirit at this end time.

We have seen what is: The Elijah who will preach to the Hebrew people is a man of this time anointed with that ministerial spirit; and we have seen what the Coming of the white horse Rider of Revelation will be, the Coming of Christ: It will be the Word incarnated in a man.

And the Moses who will be as one of the Two Olive Trees on Earth at the Last Day, the forerunner of the Second Coming of Christ tells us on page 326, at the end, he says6:

“Moses will be the same person. Now, and we find out, in Revelation 22:8, the same thing.”

And what do we find in Revelation 22, verse 8? He says: “Now, and we find out, in Revelation 22:8, the same thing”: There we find Moses.

And now let us see who Moses is here:

“And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things.”

Moses will be this same person: The Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ, because this Angel is a prophet, and it is the prophet of the Dispensation of the Kingdom.

We also find that the forerunner of the Second Coming of Christ, notice, on page 301 of the book of The Sealsin Spanish, he said7:

“Now, now, notice now. And then according to the time that God was going to deliver the antediluvian world, He sent the eagle (in other words, Noah, because the prophets of God are represented in an eagle). And time He was going to deliver Israel, He sent the eagle. Do you believe that the time, even on John, on the Isle of Patmos, this Message was so perfect that He couldn’t trust It with an Angel? You know, an angel is a messenger. But do you know the messenger was a prophet? You believe that? Let’s prove it. Revelation 22, let’s see if it was a eagle. Sure, he was an angel, he’s the messenger, but it was a prophet that revealed this whole Book of Revelation to him. Watch what John seen here:

‘I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I… heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which showed these things, which showed me these things.

Then said he to me, See thou do it not (no true prophet would be worshipped, or messenger of any kind, see): for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them that keep the sayings of this book: worship God.’

Revelation 22:8-9

Now, the Book was so important, that, It is the Word of God. Now watch. And when the Word of God is brought forth, It’s got to be brought by the prophet, because that’s who the Word of God comes to.”

The Word of God can only be brought and revealed, how? Through the prophet that God sends for that time. It cannot come any other way, because the way established by God to bring His Word is through the prophets, because they come with a theophanic spirit of the sixth dimension, of the dimension of the Word.

So for that reason is that the prophets are the Word of God for the time in which they are living, and the Word of God relevant to the time in which God sends them comes sealed in them. And through those prophets, that Word that comes veiled in them and revealed through them is manifested; it is revealed through them when they give that Word and work in the Program of God relevant to that time, and God carries out His Program, which is contained in His Word.

And since that messenger, that prophet, comes with a theophanic spirit of the sixth dimension, he brings that Word sealed in him; the Word comes veiled in that messenger and that Word comes revealed through that messenger for the people of God.

And now let us see what the Seventh Seal is. On page 469 of the book ofThe Seals in Spanish, the forerunner of the Second Coming of Christ says8:

“And did you notice? ‘That one Angel,’ I said, ‘in there, was a strange Angel (of these angels here, in this photograph).’ He looked more to me than any of the rest of Them. You remember that? [Congregation says, “Amen.”—Ed.] They were in a constellation; three on a side, and one on top. And the one right next to me here, counting from the left to the right, would have been the seventh Angel. He was brighter, meant more to me than the rest of Them. You remember? I said, ‘He had His chest out, like that, and was flying eastward’ (you remember) ‘like that.’ I said, ‘It picked me up; lifted me up.’”

Who was the Angel that took our brother Branham and placed him in that constellation of angels, in this great gathering of angels here in heaven, here, higher than the clouds, at 27 miles9high? It was the Angel who was very different from the rest.

“Here It is, the one with the Seventh Seal, the thing that I’ve wondered all my life. Amen! Them other Seals meant a lot to me, of course, but, oh, you don’t know what This has meant, for one time in life!”

Now notice that the Angel who was different from the rest, this Angel who comes with His hair – who comes forming the white hair of the Lord Jesus Christ, is the Angel who was different from the rest and it is the Angel who has the Seventh Seal. In order for the Seventh Seal to be manifested here on Earth, that Angel must come in human flesh in the midst of the people of God, in the midst of the Church of Jesus Christ, to have His ministry and thus the Divine Program relevant to the Seventh Seal be fulfilled.

Now, when the Seventh Seal begins it will be a complete secret, but that secret will later be revealed to the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ; the secret of the Seventh Seal will be revealed, the secret of the Angel who was different from the rest coming in human flesh veiled and revealed in the Angel Messenger of the Lord Jesus Christ, carrying out His Work relevant to the Program of God of this end time, the Reclamation Program of God, of everything He has redeemed with His precious Blood; and before Christ comes out of the Throne of Intercession, He also calls and gathers His last elect through that ministry.

In other words, He fulfills the content of the Seventh Seal, He fulfills it at this end time. Before the Title is taken, the Book of Redemption being taken and opened in Heaven, before that, the content of that Book is gradually fulfilled; and the things that remain to be fulfilled are fulfilled later on, even after Christ comes out from the Throne of Intercession, there will be things that will be fulfilled.

And now, notice that the Angel who was different from the rest has the Seventh Seal. The seven angel messengers of the seven ages of the gentile Church already came in human flesh and were manifested on Earth, and Christ carried out the Work relevant to each age through them; and for this end time, the Work relevant to the Last Day in the Divine Program is the Work of the Seventh Seal, the Work of the Angel who was different from the rest.

The mystery of the Seventh Seal is (where?) in the Angel who was different from the rest. That Angel coming in human flesh at the Last Day, in the Angel Messenger of Jesus Christ, is the Coming of the Word incarnated in a man, it is the Coming of the Word, the Word incarnated in a man in the end time; and therefore, he gives us the Message relevant to this end time, and he calls and gathers together the elect of God of this end time.

And thus the mystery of the Seventh Seal is manifested, the purpose for which He has come is fulfilled; and through His Angel Messenger it is revealed to His Church and he testifies of the things that must happen soon, and he reveals to her the mystery of His Coming, he reveals to her that He came just like He came to each age in the seven ages of the gentile Church, in each messenger of each age, in the portion relevant to each age: For the Last Day He reveals to His Church the mystery of His Coming to His people, in the Age of the Cornerstone and Dispensation of the Kingdom, in and through His Angel Messenger, to thus the entire Divine Program of the Seventh Seal be fulfilled and the dead in Christ be resurrected in eternal bodies and we who are alive be transformed, and all go to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.

That is for whom? For the dead in Christ, the resurrection in eternal bodies, and for us it is the transformation of our mortal bodies to immortal bodies; that is what God has for His children for this end time. And then we will be raptured, that is, we will be caught away in the clouds to receive the Lord in the air; and thus we will always be with Him in His glorious Kingdom and then for all eternity; we will also be with Him in the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.

Now, we have seen THE RAPTURE OF THE SEVENTH SEAL.

The catching away of the elect of God, notice, it is also through the manifestation of the Seventh Seal relevant to this end time. And we already know the Divine Program for the resurrection of the dead in Christ, and we already know the Divine Program for our transformation, where Christ calls and gathers together His elect with that Great Voice of Trumpet; and in Matthew, chapter 24, verse 30 to 31, He tells us that He sends His Angels with a Great Voice of Trumpet, and they will gather His elect.

Why does it say in some places that Jesus is the one who sounds the Trumpet of God and in other places it says that it is the Angels of the Son of Man? Because the Coming of the Son of Man is with His Angels, and where the fulfillment of the Coming of the Man is, the Coming of Jesus Christ in Holy Spirit manifested in human flesh at the Last Day, the ministries of Moses and Elijah will also be there, those ministries incarnated (where?) in a man of this end time.

Wherever the Word will be incarnated in a man, in the Angel Messenger of Jesus Christ, the ministries of Moses, Jesus and Elijah will also be there; those are the ministries relevant to this end time to call and gather together the elect of God and prepare them to be changed and raptured at this end time.

And now, notice how the divine blessing has fallen on Latin America and the Caribbean; it is the territory where the calling of the Great Voice of Trumpet or Final Trumpet is made, which is the calling of the Trumpet or Great Voice of Trumpet of the Gospel of the Kingdom being proclaimed, and with that Message calling and gathering together all the elect of God of this end time.

And just as Christ manifested Himself in each angel messenger in each age of the gentile Church, in the territory where each age was fulfilled, now Christ coming to His Church at the Last Day is manifested, where? In the territory where His Coming is fulfilled, and through the messenger of the Last Day, which is the messenger of the Dispensation of the Kingdom and the Age of the Cornerstone.

Notice how in each messenger is that God has been manifested in each age; and it is also this way today, where Christ, the Son of Man, the Angel who was different from the rest, we find that He will be manifested; Christ, the Angel who was different from the rest, will be manifested in human flesh at this end time, because that is the Word of God who comes in human flesh in the Angel Messenger of the Lord Jesus Christ. No wonder John wanted to worship him on two occasions.10

Now we can see the mystery of the Seventh Seal and the rapture of the elect, or vice versa: “THE RAPTURE OF THE SEVENTH SEAL.”

All the sons and daughters of God of this end time are represented in the Seventh Seal; and it is for this end time that we will be hearing the Seventh Seal, that is, the Son of Man, Jesus Christ in Holy Spirit veiled and revealed in and through His Angel Messenger.

And when the Work of the Seventh Seal reaches its end, in other words, the Work of the Son of Man with His Angels, the Work of the Second Coming of Christ, then it is also the end for all things, for this world and for all things, everything will come to an end for the kingdom of the gentiles; but before, we find that we will be transformed and the dead in Christ resurrected, and we will go to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, in Heaven, in the House of our heavenly Father.

So let us take advantage of our time in this day we live, loving God with all our soul, serving God, Christ will all our strength, and letting Him bless us at this end time; because He wants to bless His children in this time, and He needs for you to be in a favorable position in order to receive all the blessings of God; and this is by hearing the Voice of Christ, the Word of God, which is the Voice or Word of the Seventh Seal, to thus all the elect obtain the knowledge of all these things that must happen soon, at this end time.

We have seen what the Seventh Seal is: It is the Second Coming of Christ with His Angels; we have seen what the rapture of the elect of God is: It is the translation or catching away of the elect of God, who have been granted to live at this Last Day in the Age of the Cornerstone, where a new dispensation, the Dispensation of the Kingdom, is opened and it interlaces with the Dispensation of Grace, and where we will receive the body’s immortality, which has been sought by many people in past times; but, notice, it is not for he who wants it, nor he who runs (or he that runs), but rather of God, who has mercy.11

And now, we have reached the time of the Seventh Seal for the calling and gathering of the elect, to then be raptured and go to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.

It has been a great privilege to be with you on this occasion testifying to you of this Seventh Seal and testifying to you of the rapture or catching away of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, promised to be carried out at the Last Day.

He said: “And I will raise him up at the Last Day.12” This is for the believers in our beloved Lord Jesus Christ.

And where are those who would be hearing and seeing the Seventh Seal at the Last Day manifested, veiled in human flesh? Here we are, in Latin America and the Caribbean.

And where are those who will be raptured with the Seventh Seal? Well here we are too. Here we are, to be taken by Christ at this end time, to be raptured by Christ, by the Seventh Seal, and taken to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.

May the blessings of Jesus Christ, the Angel of the Covenant, be upon all of you and upon me as well, and may soon the number of the elect of God be completed, and may we all soon be transformed and taken to the House of our heavenly Father, to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. In the Eternal Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen and amen.
