7. Cloud of Angels and face of Jesus photographed on Feb. 28. [Daniel 7, Revelation 1]
I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.
His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 8. Sealed on back of Book. [Article in “Life” magazine May 1963 “Odd Sights at Heights”]
And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY. JEFF. IN 63-0728
33-3 The reason that was such a tremendous thing, that He spoke of it here and showed those Seven Thunders and "Look" and "Life" my "Life" magazine there, packed that circle of cloud and light there that they could not understand and don't know it yet, but here telling, "Go there and wait for these mysteries to be revealed" and here months before it happened; and then it happened, and exactly the way He said it would do.
Did you notice in that picture even that Angel on the right when He was being materialized, coming down, with His wings back and His head setting sideways? There it is right there in the picture just exactly: months before it happened, told here that He's going to bring the Body of believers together to reveal, take up them lost ends.

80 I got in the room there and got to speaking to God. I run my concordance to take Him back to Daniel, where it said, "And he came to the Ancient of Days Whose hair was white as wool." I said, "Lord, I--I--I don't know what to say, and I've got the responsibility." Now, that was before the--and remember, before the Seven Seals was opened, about a year or more before. I was praying there, "Lord, what was it?"
And I looked, standing before me, and there stood a man and he was a judge, and he had a white wig on. The old judges of ancient days used to wear a white wig to show that he was a supreme authority.
And then when I seen Jesus with the white wig, I said it only vindicates the truth that we know, that He is the supreme Authority. God witnessed the same thing on Mount Transfiguration, said, "This is My beloved Son, hear Him," the supreme authority.
Then back out there at the beginning of the Seven Seals, when those seven Angels come down in that pyramid form, stood there, and told me to return back here and speak on those Seven Seals. He'd be with me. He showed me what they were, the lost things. I always thought it was sealed on the back of the Book and it'd be something wasn't wrote in the Book; but it turned out that it was made known that He cannot do that. It isn't something that's written in the Book... It's something that's been hid in the Book. "For whosoever shall take one Word from It or add one word to It..." So it is a mystery that's been in the Book in these seven church ages. Each one of them produced a--a mystery, all about water baptism, and these other things that they've fumbled about so long.
Then when that went up, the big observatories from way down in California, plumb down in Mexico, over Tucson, everywhere, taking the picture of It. It was a mysterious sight. Brother Fred Sothmann there, setting right back there, and I and Brother Gene Norman, standing right there present when it went up... They took the picture, still they don't know what about it. Here sometime ago, everybody saying, "Looky here at this, looks like this, and the--them angels' wings, how they're folded in there."
85 One day, turning it to the right, looking, there was Jesus Christ just as perfect as Hofmann ever drawed Him. It was standing there with a white wig on, looking back down towards the earth, showing that He's supreme Authority. The heavens declare it; the Bible declares it; the Message declares it. It's all the same: Supreme Authority, with the white wig on. You see His black beard under it. Many of you have seen the picture. We got it back there. Just turn it to the right, sideways; look at it. There He is, just as perfect as it was--if it would been photographed of Him. They're looking at it from the wrong angle. You got to look at it in the right angle. And only the Lord God can reveal which is the right angle. Turn it to your right and look at it. There He is just as perfect, and it'd been photographed up there.
The first time I ever seen Him, He looked like a Head of Hofmann. I had never seen that before; and in Billy Sunday's tabernacle years later, I saw it. My house has never been without one of the pictures since.
Then, here in the skies, saying that the very God that I saw up in this vision out here, just a little boy out here by where this schoolhouse stands, He looked like that. And here in the heavens, thirty-three years later, declare it, that it's the truth. That's the way He looks: not some mystic something of somebody's idea.
CHRIST REVEALED IN HIS OWN WORD. JEFF. IN 65-0822M
160 A little lady here, she don't belong in this organization (this organization)--belong in this congregation. She comes from somewhere else, and she come in this morning, got a picture there. She was--give it to my son, was very much astonished. I don't know whether she ever heard about this or not. I don't know. She had a picture of this Angel of the Lord that was on the Seven Church Ages--Seven Seals opened out there. When it did, said, "looked back through there" and she seen that standing in the sky in a dream. And she looked back through there and seen that--seen somebody in white marching forward and behind it. Said it looked, said, "Brother Branham, it was you." And said marched in there, said, "Behind you was people of different colors packing banners, Georgia, Alabama, all different kinds of places, marching forward coming up into the Headship to where Christ was being revealed into the vision. Oh, hallelujah. We're in the last days, and the last hours of the days.
I HAVE HEARD BUT NOW I SEE. Shreveport, LA 65-1127E
209 How many of you take the tapes? You heard of: "What Time Is It, Sirs?" Did we show those magazines and things a year before it happened? Science is stumped on it. There was the Lord Jesus crowned and with that white wig on as you see in the Bible, in Revelations 1, and the Daniel: Supreme Judge of heaven and earth. Right there, when science can't even see It themselves. And in the observatory, out there in the University of Arizona and down through Mexico, they're searching, have been for the last two years. And there it was told you, it was going to happen before.
