« 141 † 339. Now, if time ceases when the Seals were opened, then--is... If time ceased (pardon me) when the Seals were opened, then the Millennium is also--then the Millennium is also finished, is it not?
No, no. Time didn't cease when the Seals were opened. Misunderstood it. What happened, the mysteries was revealed, not time ceased. See? Just look. Watch real close now, and will--play your tape if you got it from a tape. See?
« 142 † Time never ceased until the... This must be a post-millennialist or something that asked the question. Because see? We got a thousand years after the church has gone home and comes back upon the earth. Then time ceases in the new heavens and new earth.
Now, the Millennium is not the new heavens and new earth. There will still be sin after the Millennium. The Millennium is a type of Noah going in the ark, and carried over, and brought Ham and them on the other side. And sin even come out of the ark. See?
But Enoch, the translated one, was a type of the Bride that went up, not the one that was carried over. So sin will still be on the other side of the Millennium, but not during the Millennium. See? During the Millennium is peace. See? But sin will be dealt with the other side of the Millennium, and then time fades out.
And now, the opening of the Seven Seals that was given by the Holy Spirit, the Seven Seals only was to make known what had been left off in the dispensations behind us.
« 146 † Now, as some great theologian tried to corner me on that, he said, "Brother Branham, you--God someday will give you the secret of those Seven Seals. Those Seven Seals will be something that we've never learned yet, that it'll be something that's not even in the Bible." No, no. It won't be that, because if you do, that would make it a... If I told you that, I'd be a false prophet, because (You see?) this Word... There... Everything that's--that's... The whole revelation of Jesus Christ is all completed in this Word. See? And if the Seven Seals pertained to the seven churches, it had to be already past, because we're in the Laodicea church age... And the Seven Seals was only revealing what they had left off back there, and it opened up what they had left: what Luther left, what Wesley left, and all the reformers, and Pentecostals, and down to the present time.
« 147 † Now, the next thing left is the translation of the church, the return of Moses and Elijah, the Millennium reign upon the earth with the Bride and Groom for a thousand years, and then the judgment bar, and then a total annihilation of sin. It'll never be no more at that time.
Now, not the... Cease... The Seals never ended time. Time or seasons until after the Millennium. No. It'll still be time until after the Millennium.
