What the Prophet Ezekiel saw by Vision about 2600 years ago, God allowed the mechanical eye of the Camera to catch here in the 20th century, giving another vindication of the ministry of His servant and Prophet, William Branham. In July of 1960 while he was ministering to a congregation in Lakeport, CA. two photos were taken (see below) - one of these photos give a clear picture of the "Glory of the Lord".
(Referring to Ezekiel 1:4-5; 26-28 Brother Branham said), Watch this prophet here, five hundred and ninety-five years before the coming of Christ, see how his vision compares with John's:
A whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud,... a fire unfolding Itself, and the brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof was the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire.
Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had a likeness of man.
Notice the color of the Spirit of God which was above the likeness of these four Creatures, was amber. Amber is yellowish green. Now, watch, "yellowish green," amber, oh, He's the same yesterday... He revealed Himself to Ezekiel in the midst of Ezekiel's vision. This Light that he saw coming above the four living Creatures was yellowish green. When He come to John, He appeared in the emerald which is also "yellowish green." He comes now to the revelator in yellowish green. He comes to us in yellowish green, the Light! Walk in the Light, He is the Light.
Let's go to the 26th verse now, so we can read to the 28th. The 26th verse, Oh, when you get home, I want you to mark that, read every bit of it. Save time:
And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of throne, as the appearance of sardine stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness of the appearance of a man above upon it. (That was the Son of man, see, Christ)
(Now watch how He was arrayed here:) And I saw as the colour of amber, (watch, around this Son of man) as the appearance of a fire around about within it, from the appearance of his loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about.Listen! Be spiritual, be understanding, and in your own hearts here. I adjure you in Jesus' Name, keep this to yourself! But just remember how blessful! Let's start again in the 27th verse. Be real understanding now!
And I saw as the colour of amber... (that's yellowish green), ...as the appearance of fire around about within it,... (fire around the amberish green), ...from the appearance of his loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about. (fire all around).
Now, that you might know that the color of the Light that's with the Lord, and the Lord's Light that follows the Lord, and this was the Lord, is amber, yellowish green. That's the same color of the Light that's with us today, as the scientists has took Its picture, yellowish green, amber.
When a little boy, and I seen It for my first time, you remember, the old-timers here. I always told you before the actual picture was taken, "It was yellowish green, which is amber."
He said, when he seen it from the loins of the living Creature that stood in his presence, "From his loins upward was like fire, a Light from his loins downward, was covered with Light. And all around was many colors like unto a rainbow." Is that right?
I want you to remember, God still exists in the same colors, "from the loins upward, fire, amber color," shot with a movie camera or with a color camera, "amber from the loins up, from the loins down, and all around, many colors like is in the rainbow in the sky after a rain." Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever! The Holy Spirit's still in His power, still in His Church in this last days.
There you are. Not me, I was just standing there, but it was a picture that was taken. I want you to look at that, just exactly what Ezekiel saw. Same colors, the same way, and acted the same way, and flesh the same way, of the living Creatures. What is it? The living Creatures represents the living Church, the Church that's a-living by the power and the resurrection of Christ. Them same amber colors has covered it from the loins upward, from the loins downward.
There's no more guessing, science has took their picture! Look at their colors, just look at the colors of fire in there. See, the rainbow. Look at this yellowish-emerald color. Now, on this camera, it was just a straight photographer's camera. On this camera was color, colored pictures, Kodachrome color. Look at the emerald color in there. "Like unto a rainbow," look at the streaks coming back and forth like the rainbow, every one a different color. We're going to get into that in a few minutes, what are those colors and what do they reflect?
Oh! That just makes my poor heart jump for joy. And to know that in this day that we're living, that Christ... when all other grounds is sinking sands, all other ground. I think, "Why can't I tell that? Why can't I make the world see It?" The world wasn't meant to see It.....
.....The world won't see It, they never will see It! But the Church is receiving the mightiest shaking It ever had!
Because of the state (in the eyes of God) of the churches in this Age, as recorded in Revelation 3:14-22 - "wretched, miserable, poor, blind, naked and DON'T KNOW IT" - they failed to recognize the Ministry of the Revealing of the Son of Man (Luke 17:30)...Editor.
