EVENTS BETWEEN NOW AND THE LORD'S SECOND COMING





 

THE "SOUND DOCTRINE" MUST BE RESTORED

The Bride is called out and separated by the Message, it is also called the former or teaching rain. Then those who are properly taught will be prepared for the next event, the latter rain, which will be a short and powerful outpouring of the Holy Spirit. That harvest rain will produce the fruits.

Now, watch. Now, remember the word "m-o-u-r-e-h, moureh," means "teaching, the former rain." It says "the moureh rain, the teaching rain," teaching rain went forth. Billy Graham has struck the world. The Pentecostals struck the world, and the Word has struck the world. Now, what's the matter now? She's now waiting for the latter rain. That's when she produces her fruits. Oh, I hope you get it.
46-1 SPOKEN WORD ORIGINAL SEED -- JEFF.IN -- 62-0318M

In Joel the 2nd chapter (Joel 2:28) where he's speaking of the coming of the former and latter rain, the word "former" is the Hebrew word M-o-u-r-e-h, moureh, which means "teaching." In other words, it'll be a teaching rain and a harvest rain. Now, we've had the teaching rain, and we're ready now for the harvest rain.
64-3 SPOKEN WORD ORIGINAL SEED -- JEFF.IN -- 62-0318E

God's Prophet had a definite vision how this former or teaching rain must be established, and how it should be sent out and distributed into all the world. Jeffersonville was supposed to be the center of the true teachings, and from there it was supposed to be PREACHED all over the world.

May there be a fellowship in this church, seeing that we're just about to emerge into some great move, we feel, of bringing up other ministers to go out into the fields to where, if You shall send me into the different parts of the world, there to establish the faith, and to have a minister ready, and willing, and trained to take over. And may the faith that was once delivered to the saints, that we are gallantly standing for, become a circle around the world. Grant it, Lord. And may this little weed pile, as it was one day when we dedicated it to You, may there be a church rise up HERE, Lord, that OUT OF IT shall go ministers, and evangelists, and teachers, and missionaries to all parts of the world.
32 TOTAL DELIVERANCE -- JEFF.IN -- 59-0712

I think it's good for us to get together once in a while and kind of find out the way the Lord is leading us and many times there is little things come up like the Scriptures that you would find that would be hard. and if we don't... We want the SAME, speak the SAME thing everywhere.
1b GOD'S WRAPPED GIFT -- JEFF.IN -- 60-1225

And then in there, get training in your own groups other ministers, men that you see that has a calling in their life for the ministry. Train them young men; bring them in here to the elder. All of you set together in a ministerial meeting and there teach the DEEPER THINGS of God. Don't go on the bad end. Keep someone who, can have confidence in to be kind of like a--a leader for you. And then sometimes if you don't see it just exactly the way he does, goes--that's all right, you're in the faith anyhow; just move along. Maybe when we come together then, all of us together, we'll pray, the discernment of God come down, and He'll give it just exactly what it is (You see?) and let us know just how to do it. And in there, churches can go hear. And training up a group of men. And if I'm in evangelistic work somewhere, there's places I can place them worldwide.
762-82 TAKING SIDES WITH JESUS -- JEFF.IN -- COD -- 62-0601

Ministers who preach exactly the same doctrine were meant to go forth from the same place, all of them trained and taught properly in line with the Message. In this sermon above, Brother Branham almost begged those Brothers to train younger ministers in the doctrines of the Message, he asked them 8 times to meet once a month, and talk about the deeper things that all should understand and teach and preach the same. Was that done? No, as far as we know it was not, and that is the obvious reason why we have such a confusion in the Message. Brother Branham's logical orders have been disregarded, and are still ignored. The Prophet continues in the same sermon:

And if you can get the preachers straight and him going right, look what he's going to do. He's going to influence a... It would take care of a hundreds of these things. That's it; we're just beating at it, you see? You've got to get it a system, God's system. Now, that's the way. That was God's way back there, that was God's way in the--in the early church age, and I believe it's God's way now (That's right.) for us to do it. So, let's do it. Just quit talking about it and do it. That's all. We can do it by the grace of God. Don't you believe it?
768-115 TAKING SIDES WITH JESUS

Not only Brother Branham's way was brushed aside, but God's system also because the Prophet wanted it to be done as in the first church, as ordained by the Lord Jesus Himself. He said: “Go ye in all the world and preach the Gospel... beginning at Jerusalem.” In our time, as we see in the quotes above, the order is the same, to send out trained ministers from Jeffersonville to preach the true genuine Message all over the world while giving out the tapes and the books to confirm it. The Lord commissioned Brother Branham according to 2 Timothy 4:1 to 5, and the Prophet put it under the cornerstone at the Branham Tabernacle. Is it still relevant? Then where are the results? It was originally meant for Laodicea, but sadly we see it repeating itself once more in the Message.

II.TIMOTHY.4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of
season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after
their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
4 And they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and shall be
turned unto fables.

The trained 5 fold ministry was supposed to continue to preach the sound doctrine everywhere. But that was never done, and now we have all these fables like the false parousia, the perverted Thunders, two souls, different return ministry doctrines etc. But the most widespread deadly fable is that the resurrection of the dead and the changing of our bodies is the next event, which cuts out the day of Redemption altogether, and also what the Prophet was told behind the curtain of time. The big question is, which is the SOUND DOCTRINE in this multitude of fables in the worldwide Message? We have clearly seen that Jeffersonville should be the leader, what has gone wrong?

At the Branham Tabernacle in Jeffersonville, the trustees and the deacon board made a number of resolutions which was signed by each member, including Brother Branham himself. Paragraph III says that the church sends only Brother Branham out to hold services elsewhere. This statement is absolutely contrary to every statement the Prophet ever made on any of his tapes, as we see in the quotes above and many more. It is also utterly unscriptural, because Paul firmly established the 5 fold ministry, and he sent out Apollos, Cephas, Timothy, Titus and others to preach his Message. He also said that if an Angel from Heaven says something else, let him be accursed. Far be it that Brother Branham believed something different to what Paul and Jesus Himself taught. When the Prophet signed that, he was certainly not aware of the exact wording in that paragraph III.

III/ This church does not send out any Ministers other than its pastor Rev: William Branham to hold services elsewhere.

In some sermons, Brother Branham says and does exactly the opposite:

How many believes that with the preaching of this Message and this Word, that Brother Sink, and you believe that by the witness of the Holy Spirit, that Brother Sink should be ordained and sent from this church here as a minister of the Gospel to proclaim these Messages like has been preached this morning, to everywhere that he can go in the world the Lord will send him?
218 CHRISTIANITY.VERSUS.IDOLATRY -- JEFF.IN -- V-8 N-2 -- 61-1217

How we thank the Lord this morning for this great honor of the church witnessing the sending out of ministers in the field in this last days. Grace of God go with you, my brethren. I hope He sends you to the foreign fields and across the world, preaching this unsearchable riches of Jesus Christ, where it's so needy, so needy the world is today.
8-2 INDICTMENT THE -- JEFF.IN -- V-3 N-19 -- 63-0707

We lay hands upon him as Your elders, Lord, and give to him the right-hand of fellowship, and lay our hands upon him, and pass the blessings of God upon him, that You'll anoint his lips, his thinking, his entire being, and may he take this Message of the Gospel to every crack and corner that You'll call him to. Grant it, Lord. We give You our brother as a servant of Yours in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
Preach the Word, my young brother. Be in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke with all long-suffering in doctrine. God bless you...?...
28 DOES GOD CHANGE HIS MIND -- JEFF.IN -- V-5 N-9 -- 65-0418E

In the quotes above, we see exactly the opposite to paragraph III, anybody can see and understand that, even a child. Does a signature on a rather obscure document have more authority than every statement the Prophet has ever made on the tapes in his entire ministry? Somebody wondered about this paragraph III and asked Brother Branham, and he gave the answer loud and clear.

349. Now. Brother Branham, is it true that no one should preach but you? We have seen your--we have seen you ordain men. We do--don't believe you would do that if there were not--if they were not to preach.
Mercy. Brother, sister, ever who told you that nobody's to preach but me, I'd sure be a poor subject to God with all that. No. Every man or that feels a call of God upon his life, get into the ministry and start preaching; we need them. Men of God are anointed all over the world to preach the Gospel.
1106-Q-349 QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS -- JEFF.IN -- COD 64-0830M

In the following quote, Brother Branham spells out very clearly that he cannot, and will not get involved in the decisions made by the deacons and trustees. The tone of the Prophet's utterance tells us that he is not interested in such things, but he has to be there and HAS to sign it because of his position in the church.

In the decisions that was made by the board of trustees and deacons here in the church, of course, they can't please everyone. We cannot do that. I have not ONE THING to do with the trustee board or the deacon board. I have not even a vote unless there's a tie, and I have to be here to do it then; Brother Orman Neville takes that second vote. Then we HAVE TO sign these, because we're part of the church. But what the trustee board and them board's decision they make, we certainly stand behind them one hundred percent, 'cause that's what they're here for. And their decisions is between THEM and GOD. I cannot, cannot and would not, by any means, contrary that decision. And another thing, I am forbidden by the United States Government to make any decision concerning that, so please don't ASK ME to correct their decisions. I cannot do it, and I WILL NOT HEAR nothing about it. See? So don't ask me to correct their decisions. You SEE the BOARD; that's the one that made the decisions. All right.
7 EVENTS MADE CLEAR BY PROPHECY -- JEFF.IN -- V-12 N-3 -- 65-0801E

First of all, no Deacon or Trustee board has the right to decide who can preach and who cannot! Such a decision has nothing to do with their duties, only the Pastor can decide on that. Their duties are clearly explained in the church order sermons. When Bro. Branham signed that resolution, he said he would not interfere with their decision, he obviously expected that it all referred to their respective duties. But that paragraph III is outside their responsibilities, and contrary to the Message and the Bible.

Those in authority at Jeffersonville strictly stick to that paragraph III of that Resolution. Their official version is that only Brother Branham's tapes (CDs, MP3s etc.) and books must go out into all the world, and the 5 fold ministry and all the teachings of the Message is incorporated in that preaching of Brother Branham's and no more is required, according to their theory. They believe the evidence is that the Lord has blessed their work, there is always enough money, there are lovely testimonies, they have big buildings, big numbers etc., and they believe that they are in God's perfect will.

David being anointed, yet with the anointing he did, he got out of the will of the Lord with that anointing; and all the people, not taking the run of the Scripture or the key to this revelation, all of them anointed too, they all together, shouting and praising God for a thing that looked exactly right: to bring the Word of God back to the house of God. But David was king, not prophet. See? He... There was a prophet in the land to do it by, and God dishonored the whole move, because they never used the right key. The door didn't unlock. And now, we must remember that, and keep that in mind. There is... Everything of God, one certain way it's to be done, and that settles it.
51 GOD'S ONLY PROVIDED PLACE OF WORSHIP -- SHP.LA -- 65-1128M

No matter how good it might look on the outside, but by and large the right key has not been found, the door has not unlocked, the fables dominate over the sound doctrine just about everywhere. The Lord will bless the work to send out the Message, even without the anointed preaching, but it is not God's original plan and therefore only His permissive will. He will soon dishonour that whole move.

"Why, He blesses me." I don't doubt that. He blessed Balaam too. See? Certainly He will. You'll walking in His permissive will, not His perfect will. God doesn't change His mind 'cause He blesses you. He blessed Israel right out there for forty years. What did they do? Married wives, raised families, kissed the children, paid their tithe, lived right out there, and the--God blessed them in the wilderness, fed them with the manna on and on; and every one of them perished, 'cause they never kept His original permissive--His original will, His Word. They took His permissive way.

So remember, friend, as long as you live, don't you never forget this: God doesn't change His mind. Yet He'll bless. He'll let you go His permissive will, but He won't change His mind. He won't change His plan. He won't change His Word for you. No, sir. You've GOT TO CHANGE... You can't have God's Word to match your experience; you got to have your experience to match God's Word.
177 + 186 DOES GOD CHANGE HIS MIND -- JEFF.IN -- 65-0418E

And that's what we should strive for: His perfect will, not His permissive will. The Kingdom of God, which He--is in the earth today, will--can never be set up justly on a permissive will. It's got to come back to His perfect will.
38 SEED SHALL NOT BE HEIR -- LA.CA -- 65-0429B

Brother Branham said that the Message cannot be denominated. No, not the real, true Message, but all these different interpretations we see everywhere, they are denominations. The next quote expresses this present situation perfectly, just as we see it the world over. These Message churches are denominations because they know nothing about the true revelation of the coming of the Lord on the day of Redemption, it has never been PREACHED to them. Why? Because the Message is not going out as it should!

All the time they hear "Malachi 4" mentioned, but they never hear Brother Branham's explanations of it, they don't know what the "great and dreadful day" is all about. How can they prepare and be ready for that "greatest day in human history" as Brother Branham calls it, when they know no more than nothing about it? How many hearts are turned to the Apostolic fathers teachings of the Bible, and are waiting to partake at that "Judgment of the righteous saints" at the appearing of the righteous Judge, our Saviour?

They the--the--the church, the people that's in denominations that are--are genuine Christians who's RECEIVES THE MESSAGE... And they will never see it. It'll never be PREACHED to them. And those in a mixed crowd (who IT IS PREACHED TO), it'll go right over the top of their head unless their name was on the Lamb's Book of Life. That's right. But they will be good people, and they'd be raised up again and given trial, and be judged by the very group that preached to them.
488-4 {201} QA.ON THE SEALS -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0324M

O God, anoint Your ministers afresh. Lord, may we get out into the field with the Word, plant the real Word. If there's no Word, no seed sowed, there'll be no harvest. Give us strength now while it is day, that we might sow the seed of Life to the dying and perishing millions.
E-1 UNITED UNDER ONE HEAD -- MIDDLETOWN.OH -- 58-0326

It has to come back to God's perfect will, those dying and perishing millions are Message believers who only know the fables. But Brother Branham promises us that a fresh anointing is on it's way to plant the REAL WORD, the SOUND DOCTRINE for the latter rain harvest. Our Lord, the God of William Branham is more than able to call out and train men Himself to bring this whole thing back to His perfect will, to the sound doctrine, or else there will be no latter rain Holy Ghost revival. This present situation reminds me of a rather shocking Scripture,

ISAIAH.9:16 For the leaders of this people cause [them] to err;
and [they that are] led of them [are] destroyed.

And before we can have this revival, God has to call out and train men (God trained men) to carry this Message. And they don't care what the opposition is. They are willing to go to the fiery furnace in defeat, or to the lion's den, or wherever it may be; they're ready to go, because they've been in the Presence of God and know that He is. Whether it's to victory or defeat, they still stand the same. That's the kind of training God does to man.
6-5 GOD CALLED MAN -- JEFF.IN -- 58-1005E

I believe that we still have great Light coming on now that'll just flood the earth one of these days for a short period, maybe just in a matter a months. But I believe that there's great Light coming.
656-55 QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS -- JEFF.IN COD -- 61-1015M

What's the matter with people? Can't you see we're at the end time? It's all over. The next thing will be a sweep will...?... that little group together. In a month or so she'll be gone, as soon as she's gathered together. Well, we're at the end. There's no hopes left nowhere. Run to Christ, people.
E-112 LETTING OFF THE PRESSURE -- GREEN LAKE WI -- 62-0518

The only pluspoint the permissive way of Jeffersonville has achieved is that it has reached out into almost every nation on earth. When God will bring it back to His perfect will, the sound doctrine can go instantly into every nation to call out the predestinated seed quickly, in about a month or so.

So I've watched for something. Has it slipped by us in humility and we've missed it? Is it gone and the church is left in her sin? If that be so, then it's later than you think. If not, then there's coming one with a message that's straight on the Bible, and quick work will circle the earth. The seeds will go in newspapers, reading material, until every predestinated seed of God has heard it. None of them will come unless the Father's drawed them, and everyone the Father has drawed will hear it and come. That'll be the predestinated Seed will hear the Word.
724-179 QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS -- JEFF.IN -- COD -- 62-0527

I'm only building. The hour's close at hand when you're going to see something happen, when something's going to take place and all this background here, has only been laying a foundation for a short, quick message that'll shake the whole nation.
13-4 KNOWETH IT NOT -- JEFF.IN -- 65-0815

But watch when the spiritual Bride when She begins to have a revival, when She begins to come back and line Herself up with the Word of God, watch then again (You see?), how that the Scriptures, at that time there'll be a message sweep out to catch that Bride, catch that woman, elect. For as the world... Satan the deceiver, who deceived the first bride to sinning against the--God by misbelieving His Word...
8-5 INVISIBLE UNION OF THE BRIDE -- SHP.LA -- 65-1125

In this sermon preached right at the end of his ministry, we can see that the Prophet knew that the Bride would go completely off the Word. And then, just before the coming revival, she has to come out of the fables and line herself up with the sound doctrine which will be preached by these God called and God trained men to bring the thing back to God's perfect will. The Message which will sweep out all over the world at that time will not be another one, but the same we had all along, just preached to the saints the way it should have been done in the first place. I know it sounds terrible, but according to the Prophet, only those will be the Bride who will be called out of this present body.
As for the Bride for the whole of the USA, he mentioned 3 times the number 50, at the most.

You expect there be a hundred billion in this America come out, or some other, this world today. There might not be FIFTY come out. But the great ransomed Church is laying in the dust a waiting. They're God's jewels that's resting in the dust, but their souls are under the altar of God.
130-62 HEBREWS CHAPTER 4 -- JEFF.IN -- HEB -- 57-0901E

I was speaking here a few days ago upon this Scripture, "Strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, and but few there'll be that will find it." And a young man who was riding with me in a car, said, "How many would you say would be saved in this generation?" I said, "Eight or ten." "Oh," he said, "Don't say that, brother." I'll say, "I'll lengthen it to FIFTY, and that's as many as I can go." He said, "Fifty people?" I said, "Jesus said when He was on earth, 'As it was in the days of Noah...
E-14 LIVING DYING BURIED RISING COMING LA.CA 59-0403

...when Pentecost first started out in this latter day, when the Word begin to be preached, if it'd stayed like that, she probably wouldn't have had over FIFTY members today. That's right. But they would be blood washed. They'd had the power of God in them. The world would be shaken under her tremendous impact of the Word flesh being spoke word by word.
78-1 SPOKEN WORD ORIGINAL SEED -- JEFF.IN -- 62-0318E

And right in our own little services, just that I know, has been way and around two million or better converts to Christ. And no doubt, a few of those are going to make it anyhow. And so, just to set down, maybe... Say there'd be a hundred of them.
E-5 HAVE NOT I SENT THEE -- PHOENIX.AZ -- 62-0124

Then He shows that the people that are living on earth, it'll be one here and one there, it will not be a bunch of people gathered together in a little group, "For there will be one in the field, or two in the field, I'll take one and leave one," there comes one of the church out of daylight. On the other side of the earth, "There'll be two in bed, I'll take one and leave one." Is that right?
716-141 QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS -- JEFF.IN -- COD -- 62-0527

There's approximately five hundred million Christians in the world tonight counting Catholic and all: five hundred million so-called believers in the world. If the rapture come tonight, that would mean, if one out of a million was a count (I don't say it is.) but if it was, five hundred people in the next twenty-four hours would be missing.
33-2 CHOOSING OF A BRIDE -- LA.CA -- 65-0429E

The latest count shows that there are 2.2 billion Christians, Catholics and all. That is 2200 million, which means that 2200 will go in the Rapture. There has to be at least 1 or 2 from every nation, kindred and tongue. There are at least 3 million Message believers worldwide, which means that 99,9% will fail. As we have seen in “51 GOD'S ONLY PROVIDED PLACE...”, God will reject this whole present move of distribution of the Message as His permissive will, we must come back to His perfect will. That is a gloomy prospect, the Angel of the Lord will soon do the separating.

He said, "He sends His Angels to separate them." An Angel is coming to bring the separation, the segregation between the right and the wrong. And no one can do that but the Angel of the Lord. He's the One that's going to tell which is right and which is wrong. God said He will send His Angels at the last times. Not angels down through here, but Angels at the last time, and would gather together. We know that this is the coming harvest time now.
19 SEED OF DISCREPANCY -- PHOENIX.AZ -- 65-0118

Come right up here; stand here just a moment. You without Christ, look, the hour is getting late, friends. The death angel might separate between the Bride and the church at any time.

THE LATTER RAIN AND THE SQUEEZE

When the separation comes, then we will know that the latter rain has started, the harvest time. It also means that the last Gentile has come into the fold, when we see the latter rain outpouring of the Holy Spirit taking place. Every genuine believer is longing for that day, to experience the same Holy Ghost power in the Bride again as it was in Brother Branham's ministry. That is the real return ministry, not the return of Brother Branham, but the return of the same Holy Ghost Who anointed him, to anoint us also to make us ready, like the last sentence in the next quote tells us.

Oh, brother, give me a church full of the Holy Ghost. God will do in one year what all theology's failed to do in two thousand years. You wait till the anointing of the church really strikes home to that faithful the little remnant. AFTER the doors of the Gentiles IS CLOSED, oh, God will anoint a church THEN. "He who's filthy, let him be filthy still. He who's righteous let him be righteous still, and he who's holy let him be holy still." And God will anoint the church with the power of God, and things will be taken place. Not only that then, but He's doing it now.
145-202 QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS -- JEFF.IN -- COD -- 54-0103E

Come, Lord Jesus, catch away Your Church. And if it be Your will, Lord, just before that Church is raptured, may there rise power. O God, fill these vessels. Raise them up, Lord. Shake this world once more. We know it'll be PAST TIME; there'll be no repentance; they'll be too far for them then. But show Your power, Lord; fill those vessels and shake this world like it's never been shook before. Take Your Church then. Leave the world in her chaos that she sets in, O God, they struggle.
365 PERFECT STRENGTH -- JEFF.IN -- 61-1119

And love burning in our hearts, trying our best to seeing a lost world... And seeing the signs that God... Even down, as far as I know, to the very LAST ONE that the Church is going to receive BEFORE the fire falls from heaven. The same Pillar of Fire that was seen back there in the wilderness, the same One that struck Saint Paul down, is the same One even that's got Its picture taken of It, right here doing the same thing It did there, same Messiah.
195 INFLUENCE -- NY.NY -- 63-1114

Wonder, could it be already passed? Could the Bride already be called? Is that what we're going through today? She's has to be molded and made into the IMAGE OF CHRIST, and Christ is the Word.
204 RAPTURE THE -- YUMA.AZ -- 65-1204

We cannot bypass the grave without first coming to the full statue of the perfect man, because the Message with the full revelation of the written Word must produce that. According to Revelation 22:18 and 19, We cannot add ONE WORD, or take ONE WORD from it. Brother Branham quoted that Scripture over a 100 times, and mostly after the opening of the 7 written Seals in March 1963. Do we actually realize how tight this is going to be at the end? This Scripture must be fulfilled!

Let us not be satisfied till we feel the miracle working power in God taking the--in our own hearts, taking the world out, and forming Christ. Now, not tonight, and tomorrow start doing something else, but grow in Him, up to His statue. We grow up to Him, until we meet Him.
292 IF GOD BE WITH US -- JEFF.IN -- 61-1231E

If you're a born again Christian, that little Germ that's predestinated in you, it's Word coming on Word, on Word, on Word, on Word, till it comes into the FULL STATUE of Christ. That's right. So He can come and get His Bride.
43-3 INVISIBLE UNION OF THE BRIDE -- SHP.LA -- 65-1125

Why does the Holy Spirit keep crying out? It knows there's something lacking there. We must be in the FULL STATUE of Jesus Christ. We must be sons and daughters of God. We must act like God's children.
68 THINGS THAT ARE TO BE -- RIALTO.CA -- 65-1205

We must be like the Firstborn at that time of the full manifestation of the sons of God. Only the Holy Spirit can form and mould us as individual believers, and lift us up into such great spiritual heights. With all the spiritual gifts in operation, and another Ananias and Sapphira manifestation will bring the separation between right and wrong when this short and most powerful latter rain outpouring of the Holy Spirit will take place. To become the full Word, we have to understand the right doctrine.

But if all of the full Gospel people would come one heart and one accord, there would be a revival that would shake the whole world. And every spiritual gift would be in the Church within a hour's time after it took place. Signs and wonders that was done by the apostles would be a minor thing to what would be if we could just get the Church together. It's got to happen. It will happen. It may be after I've passed off the scene. But I want to put my word in this that you might know, that my voice is this... O Christian people, bind yourselves together with one heart and one accord. For God cannot no more send the gifts to the Church while the Church is separated, than He can send the Holy Ghost unless we're in one accord. That's right. For it comes by the Holy Ghost. Believe it.
E-4 ANGEL OF GOD -- PHOENIX.AZ -- 48-0304

When the church begins to get into its mighty power, when they have an Ananias and Sapphira, few of them. Yes, sir. You'll see when that holy church stands together in its power, positionally placed as sons of God, adopted into the family of God, powerful church standing there in its glory. Oh, that's what He's coming for.
205 MANIFESTED SONS OF GOD -- JEFF.IN -- 60-0518

Brother Graham, this has been the longing of my heart, to see a Church that's so filled with God until sin can't abide in it anywhere, the Spirit of God calling it right out, wherever it is. I want to see that. And one thing that I desire, the one great vision from the Lord that I've always desired to have from the Lord, He give it to me the other morning about ten o'clock in the morning. And that satisfied my desire.
20 IF GOD BE WITH US -- JEFF.IN -- 61-1231E

Let the Pentecostal church straighten itself up, get right with God, and I'll prove to you that the Holy Ghost will come right in. Why, this... The church will be so full of the power of the Holy Ghost there can't be one member do one sin. The Holy Ghost will call it right out, like Ananias and Sapphira. Right. But you can't do it when you won't even take your kindergarten training. Certainly not.
E-118 CONVINCED THEN CONCERNED -- TEMPE.AZ -- 62-0118

The crisis is on, and we're missing something. We're missing power that we ought to have, where the big machine ought to be running up, and great signs and wonders. Well, this building ought to be setting so full of power of God, now, till a sinner couldn't stay in here; the Holy Spirit condemning it, right quickly like that, like Ananias and Sapphira. And we're missing something.
126 DOES GOD CHANGE HIS MIND -- LA.CA -- 65-0427

You know, the hour will soon arise when--when right among us will be--the Holy Spirit will speak out like It did in Ananias and Sapphira...?... See, that hour is arriving. See? And we are... Now, you just remember that (See?) that God is going to dwell among His people. That's what He wants to do now.
60 COMMUNION -- TUCSON.AZ -- 65-1212

In the Prophet's very last sermon, he confirmed once more that God will come again to be among His people to eradicate all sin and unbelief. There will be no fables among those little groups, God will only come among those who are prepared by the SOUND DOCTRINE. In 1 Thessalonians 4, this latter rain outpouring of the Holy Ghost is also called the "Voice of the Archangel," it will restore the power to RESURRECT us to a living power of faith. Like in Ezekiel 37, the first voice brought the dry bones together, and the sinews, and the flesh and skin, but they had no breath in them. But the SECOND voice breathed the breath of life into them. That's what the latter rain will do to us.

O Jesus, Thou Son of God, come again; anoint Your church freely, fully, powerfully. May the Spirit of the living resurrected Jesus resurrect this little church this morning into a new faith, power, power of faith, that we might put every gainsayer to shame.
131 GO TELL -- JEFF.IN -- 60-0417M

You promised, "I will restore," saith the Lord, "all the years that the caterpillars destroyed, and the palmerworms, and so forth." How they would be restored again, and that tree would live again. We pray, Father, that You'll send down grace, and the resurrection power of Christ, that You might restore, resurrect us to a living faith in the living Word of this day.
23 PARADOX -- BAKERSFIELD.CA -- 64-0206B

She is part of that Word, and she's watching for Her life to manifest that Word. Brethren, can't you see that? I hope that didn't go over you. The Body is waiting for, which is the Word, waiting for the Life, which is the Spirit, to confirm or make It ALIVE. That's what she's waiting for. No other life will work in her. She can't come TO LIFE any other way, yet she feels it out there, and she knows it's going to happen; then here it happens, then she wakes up.
167 GOD OF THIS EVIL AGE -- JEFF.IN -- 65-0801M

One of these days a great attack will take place which will start a great depression. All the security agencies in the western world expect another terrorist attack, a more severe one then 9/11. That could bring a collapse of the present money system, it almost happened in 2009 already. All the countries of the world will sooner or later go bankrupt in this great and terrible depression.

When God sends forth a message and tells the people, and they don't receive it, then He withdraws His servant and sends His plagues: famine, death, spiritually speaking, physically also. You watch for a depression, brother. You think you've seen something; you just wait after while. You haven't seen nothing.
100 JEZEBEL RELIGION -- MIDDLETOWN.OH -- 61-0319

They won't believe nothing. See? They just got their own hardheaded ideas, and they're set, and the next thing's for this nation is judgment. She's going to have it too. It may be through depression; it may be through an atomic bomb; it may be through a great plague, a disease or something; but she's ready. It's a-coming; thousands times thousands will fall.
87-4 HEBREWS.CHAPTER.3 -- JEFF.IN -- 57-0901M

...the mark of the beast: in the ecclesiastical realms, the confederation of churches, all in uniting and making themself a great organization, the same as Catholicism. And the world empires are uniting themselves together and forming up a big head over there in the political realms called communism. And the life of God is pressing on. What's happening this same time to make it? The Christian Church, the Church of the living God is being anointed. Power is coming to her. She's receiving the Holy Spirit.
E-38 BEGINNING ENDING GENTILE DISPENSATION -- JEFF.IN -- 55-0109E

In this quote it appears that the latter rain will come after this attack has taken place. This event will divide the world again, Russia, China and other countries will come together and make an alliance, and the western countries will unite. The Catholic church and the World Council of churches will also unite and lend the western countries the money to be able to continue. The condition will be to shut down all the churches which do not belong to them, and to fight against the communists.

For the church system of the Roman Catholic and the Protestant in coming together will control the whole wealth of the world system and force the whole earth into its religious trap, or will kill them, by refusing them the privilege of buying and selling whereby they would make a living. This will be accomplished simply, for the harlot's daughters are all but gone back to her. In the meantime, Rome has acquired nearly all the supplies of gold. The Jews have the bonds and all the paper. At the right time, the harlot will destroy the present day money system by calling in all the paper, and demanding gold. With no gold, the system falls. The Jews will be trapped and come into the alliance, and the harlot church will take over the whole world.
314-1 CHURCH AGE BOOK

But now, he's to bring them all in together and make a confederation, and in there the Jews will accept it. Oh, glory, hallelujah. Praise be to our God Who lives forever and ever. There you are. Now, brother, it's just as simple as simple as... A little kid could see it. The confederation will bring in Jewish, and Protestant, and Catholic together.
169 SEVENTY WEEKS OF DANIEL -- JEFF.IN -- 61-0806

A confederation of church will consolidate them together and bring the Jews into this confederation, and bring them back to their own TEMPLE worship again in the THUS SAITH THE LORD out of the Bible, and they will have their own church.
140 SIXFOLD PURPOSE GABRIEL VISIT DAN -- JEFF.IN -- 61-0730E

The Jews mentioned in the last 2 quotes are not the Wall street Jews, it is Israel as a nation. They will be pressed to join this Confederation, and the 7 year covenant will be negotiated with Rome. Jerusalem will come under the rule of the Vatican, and the Jews will be compensated by allowing them to built the third Temple. The covenant will be finalized and signed after the Bride is raptured.

Israel will return to her homeland. And I see her going in. I understand by letters of the prophets that Israel will become a nation. They'll re-establish the temple worship. And God will go to dealing with her again when she comes to her homeland.
93 GABRIEL'S INSTRUCT.TO DANIEL -- JEFF.IN -- 61-0730M

And these two marks run side by side. And it's going to get so great (Listen.), so pinching, that just before the coming of the Lord, that you'll have to have one mark or the other one, or there'll be a boycott: you can't buy nor sell.
E-17 MARK OF THE BEAST -- JEFF.IN -- 56-0715

To sign up with this confederation of churches means to receive the mark of the beast. The other mark is to be truly baptized with the Holy Spirit. Those of us who will remain faithful at that trying time, we will be regarded as evil religious fanatics like terrorists who attack the innocent people. But God will be with us at that time if we are steadfast, and He will lead us by His Spirit. But we have to know these things, and believe it to prepare ourselves. That's why this chapter is very important.

And so there'll be a unionize amongst the churches, and they'll unite themselves together, form up the head of the confederation of churches, which they've already got a big U.N. building and every denomination is in it. And you'll either have to belong to some of those denominations or be ousted. And that's the time where we have to show our colors and be sure that we know, not a guess work, but know THUS SAITH THE LORD where you're standing.
57 PATMOS VISION -- JEFF.IN -- 60-1204E

And they're going to bring a persecution on pretty soon and shut up all the churches. You see that. And churches like this who's not in denominations, they'll use them for storehouses then. And if any man goes and offer a prayer for anybody else that don't belong to the economical movement will be shot on the spot.
60-5 CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0728

Next move is to crucify. Same as now, causing all who don't join with them, will be shut out and not be allowed to preach. You see? That crucifies afresh the vindicated Word of promise. Stops it. You're not allowed to have it no more. "No more healing services. No more prayer for the sick." No, sir. You can't do it. No matter... "This other..." No, sir. You'll come through the Council of Churches or you don't have it at all.
122 WHAT SHALL I DO WITH JESUS -- JEFF.IN -- 63-1124M

What she doing? Heading up in the federation of churches, which will finally join with Romanism to fight Catholicism--or with Catholicism to fight Communism. Pope John is calling for all the churches to come back, and they will. And they'll unite themselves together, just exactly what THUS SAITH THE LORD.
215 HEAR RECOGNIZE ACT ON WORD -- JEFF.IN -- 60-0221

And how that then the three isms (Nazism, Fascism, and Communism) would all wind up in Communism. And how many in here remembers me just keep having you stand, and say it over like that, "Watch Russia. Watch Russia, the king of the north. Watch Russia, king of the north. Watch Russia, king of the north"?
44 LAODICEAN CHURCH AGE -- JEFF.IN -- 60-1211E

In December 1991, the Soviet Union and communism in Russia came to an end. It looked as if the Prophet's prediction that the churches will unite to fight against communism in Russia was wrong. But in the following quote he explains what will happen, the communists will take on democracy for a while to recover. This had to happen for the Message to get into Russia and all the other states of the former Soviet Union. But as the Prophet said, the communists will COME BACK to power and make their alliance, and then the doors will be shut. There are at least 3 independent prophesies which were given in different European countries that this would happen, long before it started.

...just let America come back to God, back to her gift, back to the Holy Ghost, and people will have to quit hollering about communism. It's so worm-weeded in until even communists has anticommunist setups, to find out who they are. The thing has to be that way. But let them COME BACK.
52 GREATER THAN SOLOMON -- DALLAS.TX -- 64-0306

Why did Russia become communism? Because of vulgar and dirtiness and the non-power of the Catholic church. That's exactly why this nation is taking over communism in a federation of churches and joining itself up with the Catholic church, which communism and Catholicism will unite together, you know.
54-1 INDICTMENT THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0707

Watch that now, these ten horns, these ten kingdoms. See, that's everything falling in, what these dictators are. Watch the way dictators lean to. Where's it leaning to? Just--just look--tell me a dictator that doesn't lean towards communism. See? And they shall what? "Hate the whore," the woman, the church. But watch. Watch what's going to do it.
... these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked,
and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
88 WHY ARE WE NOT A DENOMINATION? -- JEFF.IN -- 58-0927

These 10 horns in Revelation 17 are 10 dictators, they will form this communist alliance to oppose the rule of the Confederation of the Catholics and the Protestant churches. But after the present money system will be destroyed, and this Confederation will hold the wealth of the whole world, the communists will be forced to join the Confederation. They utterly hate them, but they have no other option, and it will be the Lord Himself who will make them to agree till the end of the tribulation.

REVELATION.17:16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the
beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and
naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give
their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

But the first thing you'll know, they'll try to stop all of this. The--they'll try to quit praying for the sick and put a banned on it. And just remember that when persecution rises, the church it comes to its very height then. It's always the best. Yes, sir, and God's working it all together.
22-7 WHAT IS A VISION -- CHI.IL -- 56-0408A

I believe He's got the same thing today, waiting for His church to call it on the scene, so He can act. The promise of today is ready. But He's got to get the people to praying and groaning, like they were down there. Then it'll come on into the scene. See?
50 VOICE OF THE SIGN -- TULARE.CA -- 64-0214

In these 2 quotes we see that the Lord allows all these things to happen to test and try us. We have to become much more sincere as most of us are at this time. First we must clearly understand all these things, and then when we see them come to pass, then our faith will become strong. We will need great faith to take an unwavering stand at that time, and we must trust the Lord in all things.

REVELATION.13:8 And ALL that dwell upon the earth shall worship
him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain
from the foundation of the world.
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the
name of the beast, or the number of his name.

It is obvious that not ALL that live upon the earth would voluntarily join this Confederation, but they are forced to take that mark of the beast to be able to buy any food, or whatever is needed to stay alive. This will be a very serious situation when we get there, but the Bible says that those who are written in the Lamb's Book of life will be excluded from this worship of the anti-christ. That means that at that time the Lord must have something special in store for us, to help us to stay alive.


 

WE WILL LOSE ALL, BUT THE LORD WILL PROVIDE

Then, if you don't belong to the world organization of churches, you won't be able to buy or to sell. YOU WILL LOSE ALL. Those who stay true to God and keep their garments clean from the defilement of this `world-system' of church orders will be PHYSICALLY BEREFT. There will be presented to them a great temptation to give in.
265-1 CHURCH AGE BOOK

The ecumenical move that has started on what seems such a beautiful and blessed principle (fulfilling Christ's prayer that we all might be one) becomes so strong politically that she bears pressure upon the government to cause all to join with her either directly or through adherence to principles enacted into law so that no people will be recognized as actual churches unless under direct or indirect domination of this council. Little groups will lose charters, privileges, etc., until they LOSE ALL PROPERTY and spiritual rights with the people.
313-2 CHURCH AGE BOOK

With the world church system under her Rome will be controlling, and this image (church system) will be obedient to Rome because Rome controls the gold of the world. Thus all the people have to belong to the world church system or be at the mercy of the elements for they cannot buy or sell without the mark of the beast in the hand or head.
376-1 CHURCH AGE BOOK

Like everybody else who refuses to sign up, we will lose all our worldly possessions, our properties, houses, cars, everything. We will be treated as vagabonds, Brother Branham said that we will be at the mercy of the elements, counted as fanatical outcasts because we will refuse to sign up with them. Then the true disciples will fulfill the following Scripture:

Luke 14:33 So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh
not ALL that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.

But then we will have what nobody else will have, the presence of our Lord in our midst.

The Confederation of Churches are going to all unite together as they are now. And you know what's going to happen to a little group like this? You're going to pay for it, boys. That's exactly right. But don't worry, the Lamb shall overcome him. For He's the Lord of lord and a King of kings, and God will go to leading His church, instead of a denomination. He'll pour out that golden Oil of the Holy Ghost upon that church, brother, Fire will fall from Heaven, with signs and wonders will take place like you've never seen before. Yes, sir. "Fear not, little flock, it's your Father's good will to give you the Kingdom." Yes, sir. "He that endures to the end..." There you go.
123 WHY ARE WE NOT A DENOMINATION? -- JEFF.IN -- 58-0927

Now, you'll see what the latter rain produces. You'll find out there'll be an affiliation. The Pentecostals and all the groups will come together, and they'll shut the doors on them guys that won't listen to it; and you won't even be allowed to open your mouth. That's right. That's when He will come. That's when He will show. That's when you'll see a rain.
55-4 SPOKEN WORD ORIGINAL SEED -- JEFF.IN -- 62-0318M

And if this is true, then it must also be true that the Bride Church will mature, and her ripeness shall be an identification with her Lord by means of the Word, and her Head Who will come to her is the Mystery of Godliness, Which indeed is Christ. And as the false church with all cunning and diabolical power made up of political force, physical force and demons of darkness come against this true vine, the true vine with the fullness of the Spirit and the Word will do the very acts of power that Jesus did. Then as she nears her Headstone, becoming like Him through the Word, Jesus will come that the bride and Groom may be forever united as one.
363-1 CHURCH AGE BOOK

The Lord has already vindicated to us during Brother Branham's ministry what He will do to sustain us when we lose everything, and be at the mercy of the elements. Those five manifestations of the third pull will provide for us everything we have need of. We will control the elements by the spoken Word like the Prophet dispersed the Colorado blizzard, and speak food into existence like the fish and the squirrels. Sickness we will speak out of existence, cast it out by the spoken Word, and the wayward children we bring to repentance, and back in the fold by the spoken Word. That is a sure promise we must keep in our hearts, and have faith to use it, there is no other way to survive.

O Lord, I believe the hour is soon coming that when the loaves and fishes will be multiplied. There'll come a mark of the beast soon. There'll come a confederation of churches, and they'll put out a sign that--a unionized church that no man can buy or sell. And Your Church, it won't bother them; for Your Holy Spirit shall lead them and feed them as You did Israel in the WILDERNESS. You are God. Don't let us miss that, Lord. Let us remain faithfully. Let us be true.
E-69 NEW MINISTRY -- JEFF.IN -- 59-1115

And that is, the thing that we have looked forward to for so long, or at least many years, four or five years or maybe longer, the third pull has now been vindicated, and I'm sure you all know what it is. Now, remember, there'll never be any impersonation of that, 'cause it can't be. It cannot be. Now, it's in existence, and I have--I am warned of this, that soon, right at this time now, it's just happened, so it could identify its presence among you. See? But it will not be used in a great way, until this council begins to tighten up. And when it does, when that does... The Pentecostals and so forth can almost impersonate anything could be done, but when that time comes, when the squeeze comes down, then you'll see what you have seen temporarily, be manifested in the fullness of its power.
6-1 LOOK AWAY TO JESUS -- JEFF.IN -- 63-1229E

It's tightening; and then when that time comes, and the press comes to a place to where you're pressed out, then watch (what I am fixing to tell you in a few minutes) watch the third pull then. It'll be absolutely to the total lost, but it--it will be for the Bride and the church.
7-4 LOOK AWAY TO JESUS

Mrs. Branham," Is that right the way he said it? That's right. "that that tumor isn't there. You don't have any tumor." What was it? Just exactly according to the Word of the Lord that was spoke. Amen. That's the fifth time. Five is the number of grace, a number of f-a-i-t-h too. There's no more doubt in my mind. I know what the third pull is, and I know what it does. Now, be reverent; just keep quiet. The hour will soon arrive, where God is going to do some great things for us.
21-3 LOOK AWAY TO JESUS

Now, that great gift... Others I tried to explain and say how it was done. This can't be explained. Just wait. It will not be in operation so perfectly now. Wait till that council of churches brings on that persecution; that's when it'll happen.
138 HIS UNFAILING WORDS OF PROMISE -- PHOENIX.AZ -- 64-0120

And we all know that the identification, we know what the third pull is, we all understand that. Now, you've got--you'll have the tape. You see? And it's... Now, I think it'll just lay dormant for a little while, until the great hour of persecution comes on. That's when...?... It'll speak. It'll be manifested. Just like the five straight signs without failure, perfectly.
263 SHALOM -- SIERRA VISTA AZ -- 64-0112

Notice, He called to this widow, and this widow had not associated herself with the unbelievers (took the mark of the beast during the drought), so He called he--her out to--called Elijah to sustain this widow. They just had one little cake, one little thing she was holding on to. And Elijah said, "Give that to me first. For THUS SAITH THE LORD, that barrel will not go empty; neither will the cruse run dry..
121 SPIRITUAL FOOD IN DUE SEASON -- JEFF.IN -- 65-0718E

The Angels of the Lord will be encamped around us to keep us perfectly safe. About that time, just before the coming of the Lord, something else will take place. When this Confederation has shut down all the "radical and fanatical" Mosques, and churches, and all the other religious places which have refused to sign up with them, then they will say that there will be no more attacks by religious extremists, and they will claim that they have restored peace and safety again for everybody.

I.THESSALONIANS.5:2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day
of the Lord so cometh
as a thief in the night.
3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh
upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

Look at the earthquakes over here in California. I predict BEFORE the coming of the Lord Jesus, that God will sink that place. I believe that Hollywood, and Los Angeles, and them filthy places over there, that God Almighty will sink them. They'll go beneath the bottom of the sea. And it's so much sin (You see?), it's the barrier.
47 WHO DO YOU SAY THIS IS? -- PHOENIX AZ -- 64-1227

And fear, sights upon the earth, perplexed of time, distress between the nations; sea roaring, big tidal waves washing away parts of cities and breaking upon the shores, just BEFORE the coming. It is get... It's setting a stage for the greatest drama that was ever acted out in all ages, the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.
E-9 PILLAR OF FIRE -- JONESBORO AR -- 53-0509

No other destruction comes as sudden as an earthquake and tidal waves. We understand that a huge earthquake is predicted to sink a huge junk of the Californian coast beneath the sea. It's more than likely that this will be the sudden destruction mentioned in 1 Thessalonians 5:3, it will certainly cause a massive tsunami at all the coasts around the whole world. There are lots of big cities near the coast, some just a few meters above the sea level, the destruction will be unimaginable.

Fifteen hundred mile chunk of it, three or four hundred miles wide, will sink hundred--or maybe forty miles down into that great fault out yonder one of these days, and waves will shoot plumb out to the state of Kentucky. And when it does, it'll shake the world so hard that everything on top of it will shake down.
144 THINKING MAN'S FILTER -- JEFF.IN -- 65-0822E

JEREMIAH.25:32 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, evil shall
go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind shall be raised
up from the COASTS of the earth.
33 And the slain of the LORD shall be at that day from [one] end of the
earth even unto the [other] end of the earth: they shall not be lamented,
neither gathered, nor buried
; they shall be dung upon the ground.

Recently we have seen the terrible destruction in Haiti, and the tremendous suffering of the victims of that tremor. There will not be nearly enough rescue teams, and medical staff, or aid and food for those who will survive this coming massive calamity. But the true Bride of the Lord will be safely tucked away, protected by the Angels, waiting eagerly to hear that summons of Revelation 4:1.


 

THE MOST IMPORTANT SUMMONS OF ALL TIMES

REVELATION.4:1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door [was]
opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard [was] as it were
of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will
shew thee things which must be hereafter.

Except for Israel, all the other people on the face of the earth, every kindred, nation and religion will be pushed at that point in time like to the edge of a cliff, to be cast over into outer darkness where there will be weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth, known as the great tribulation. Just in the nick of time, the Voice of the Lord will call or summons His living saints to “come up hither” to meet Him at His second coming in Glory. We must be ready and respond quickly to that call on high.

After the church ages was over, and everything was come ready, made ready the setting of the 4th chapter here, the church ages was done. He had done left the earth. You see? Remember, the voice that spoke to him, behind him, in the seven golden candlesticks, the work was finished. And now that same voice was speaking up in heaven. What was it? He had done redeemed His people. His earthly work was finished, and He was in glory, calling to John, "Come up hither." Amen.
109 REVELATION CHAP FOUR PT 1 -- JEFF.IN -- 60-1231

Oh, and notice, John, being taken up immediately after the church age, was a type of the raptured church. Immediately after the church age is over, this Laodicean church age, then comes the rapture. The church goes up like John did into the Presence of God. Oh, that just winds my soul around. Caught up, at the rapture of the church.
125 REVELATION CHAP FOUR PT 1

You say, "He represented the church?" To everyone that hears this Word, John represented him. Amen John was the representative of the Blood of Jesus Christ, testimony of the Word. He was a witness of the baptism of the Holy Ghost, with a personal fellowship with Christ, and he represented the entire church; that, every man or woman, boy or girl that ever believed in Christ and accept Him on the same grounds, he'll be summoned someday, "Come up hither," and be caught up before the tribulation. Remember, the tribulation time hasn't set in yet. This is being the time of setting of the JUDGMENT. John is being showed now what's going to take place after the church age. See? So it was.
174 REVELATION CHAP FOUR PT 1

Oh, every Christian. The very voice, Charlie, that summoned you one day down there in Kentucky, to turn around, is the same voice that'll summons you, "Come up." Aren't you glad of that, Brother Evans? The voice that said, "Turn around," same voice said, "Come up." Oh, my. There, what a summons. What a reality, clear, distinct like a trumpet, "Turn around; serve Me. Come up to where I am." There we seen them representing those who died, Moses to represent the dead saints, rose. Elijah, with his group at the last day, with his raptured group standing there all before the Lord Jesus.
66 REV CHAP 4 PT 2 -- JEFF.IN -- 61-0101

This is one of the least known, but one of the most important facts of the Message. The Bible says that the Lord will come to judge the living (quick) and the dead, and this Voice summons the living saints to come up hither to join the dead saints before the Throne to be judged and fully redeemed. As Brother Branham explained many times, Mt. Transfiguration is a type, Moses represented the dead saints, and Elijah the raptured or translated living saints who join the dead before the Throne.

Oh, it pays us, my brother, sister; it behooves us as sons and daughters of God to check up on ourselves every hour of the day. Paul said, "I die daily. Yet I live, not I, but Christ lives in me." See? Be checked up, because you don't know what hour you're going to be summoned to ANSWER on high.
111 REVELATION CHAP FOUR PT 1 -- JEFF.IN -- 60-1231

Lord, year in and out, and sometime we don't when or where, but we know we'll have to assemble for the last time, and we'll be called to ANSWER. I pray, Father, that if there be some here tonight who does not know You as their Saviour, that this will be the night that they'll make preparations for when that call of summons to come on high to stand at the JUDGMENT, may they BE READY TO GO, all washed in Calvary.
E-1 WHY -- PHOENIX AZ -- 60-0309

...they'll realize that they don't know what minute that we may be called or summoned to ANSWER FOR OUR LIVES on high. And if our name is still on that stalk book, doomed we'll be; but if it's in the Lamb's Book of Life, the real Life, then we are saved.
99 TRYING TO DO GOD A SERVICE -- SHP.LA -- 65-1127B

Cause the day is far spent and the evening shadows are falling; the evening Light is here; and we are soon listening for the summons to come on high, and we are wanting TO BE READY at that hour. So, help us, Father. And there's no man worthy to open the Book, or to loose the Seals thereof; but the Lamb, that was slain from the foundation of the world, come took the Book and LOOSED THE SEALS.
49 HARVEST TIME -- PHOENIX AZ -- 64-1212

Once again, these quotes tell us that the Judgment of the righteous saints and the opening of the seven last Seals is one and the same event, we will be summoned on that day of Redemption to meet our Kinsman Redeemer. The Bible tells us that we cannot appear before the righteous Judge in these bodies of sinful flesh. We must be judged in righteousness first in order to lift the curses of Genesis 3:17+19 individually off every one of us, BEFORE we can receive our glorified bodies. We must understand that we must leave these bodies behind, and to be translated like Paul to the 3rd Heaven, and Brother Branham behind the curtain of time, and John to the Throne of God.

His experience must've been something like that of Paul's. II Corinthians 12:2 and 4, if you're putting it down. II Corinthians... 2 to 4. Paul was caught up one day, in a--in a vision too. Did you know that? And he saw things that wasn't expedient for him to even talk about; fourteen years, never even mentioned it. See? But listen at the difference between them. What Paul saw, he was forbidden to speak of it or to tell it out to the public. Oh, my. I don't believe he could do it. (Why, a little trip I took one day, I've never got over it and never will.) See, he--he saw things that he couldn't talk about. I guess he didn't have words to. He was caught up in the third heavens though (See?), up in the third heaven.
121 REVELATION CHAP FOUR PT 1 -- JEFF.IN -- 60-1231

I looked right back and seen myself laying on the bed. Oh, Lord, let me look a-past the curtain of time. What is it? It's quickening power that'll CATCH US AWAY: that great quickening power.
35-2 EASTER SEAL -- PHOENIX AZ -- 65-0410

II.CORINTHIANS.5:6 Therefore [we are] always confident, knowing
that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:
8 We are confident, [I say], and willing rather to be absent from the
body, and to be present with the Lord.

First of all, we must have a solid understanding of the sequence of these events, then we will see how logical it is, we cannot be redeemed any other way. That will give us the confidence we need to make us willing to gladly leave this body at that time of the summons, to meet our Lord at the Judgment Seat of Christ to be accepted of Him as verses 9 and 10 tell us.

9 Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be
ACCEPTED of him
.
10 For WE must ALL appear before the judgment seat of Christ;
that every one may receive the things done in his body, according
to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

In Genesis 3, we see that God the Judge condemned Eve and Adam for their unacceptable and unrighteous deeds done in their bodies. But on the day of the Judgment of the righteous saints, when our righteous deeds will be displayed like on a television screen on the canvas of Heaven for everybody to see, then that same Judge will judge and declare us to be faultless and blameless as explained in the Bible. We will stand before Him, and He will tell us individually:

MATTHEW.25:21 ...Well done, [thou] good and faithful servant:
thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over
many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

We cannot enter into the joys of the Lord in these terrestrial bodies, we must leave them behind on the earth when our souls will exit this corruptible flesh and be translated or raptured to meet the dead in Christ before the judgment seat of Christ. They will rise, not from the grave, but from their sleep and slumber as Matthew 25:5-7 tells us. Brother Branham said that all Scriptures have a compound meaning, that also includes 1 Thessalonians 4, as the next quote shows us.

The next rapture takes place is II Thessalonians for the church, the Bride, to be resurrected to be raptured into glory. "We which are alive and remain (That's the body that's left on earth.) will not prevent or hinder them which are asleep; for the trumpet of God shall sound first, and the dead in Christ shall rise. (See?) And we which are alive and remain shall caught up together with them."
172 RAPTURE THE -- YUMA.AZ -- V-5 N-14 -- 65-1204

That is when we must have that great translation faith the Prophet speaks about in many places all over the Message, or else we stay behind and miss that great day of our full Redemption.

Let's bow our heads. Our heavenly Father, oh, my heart gets warm, real warm...[Blank.spot.on.tape--Ed.]... great faith that'll just make the people be ready for the GREAT TRANSLATION.
E-51 ANGEL OF THE LORD -- LA.CA -- 51-0502

But just the same, God's moving right on, bringing in the RAPTURING FAITH for His Church. That's right. So tonight I represent that faith, the faith that was once delivered to the saints, in the way of a Divine gift.
27 GOD HAS A PROVIDED WAY -- LVL.KY -- 54-0404

"Just shall live by faith," or sanctification, or the gifts of the spirit, but revelation after revelation, power after power, glory after glory, for we ought to be way up the road ready for the TRANSLATION. And we're lingering back down in the old things and saying, "Well, we keep going back." Let's go forward.
E-31 GOD KEEPS HIS WORD -- JEFF.IN -- 57-0407M

Divine healing across the nations, and the power, and restoration... And now, I believe she's ready to strike that final climax yonder to bring forth a faith that'll rapture the Church into glory (It's the truth.), and She's laying IN THE MESSAGE.
35-3 ABSOLUTE THE -- JEFF.IN -- 62-1230M

3rd mystery is the mystery of the TRANSLATION of the LIVING SAINTS at the end time of this age: I Corinthians 15 and also Thessalonians 4:14-17.
31-1 IS THIS THE SIGN OF THE END SIR -- JEFF.IN -- 62-1230E

The mystery of the translation of the living saints lays only in this Message, because only the living saints need it. This is not the generally known Rapture, this great faith is only for the souls of the living saints to be quickened to leave the body and join the dead in Christ before the Throne of God over there as explained in Revelation 4. As the next quote says, we need more faith than any of the other ages, because they are there already, and we have to be translated to join them yonder.

And I want you to get built up now in the--the holy Oracles of God, in the faith, the faith of this hour. The faith, it's going to take MORE FAITH than ever was in ANY AGE, for this has to be RAPTURING FAITH, be taken up. And so we want you to believe tonight in all that you have seen, heard, the Word that you have heard preached, the--the signs and wonders that you've seen done.
3 SPIRITUAL FOOD IN DUE SEASON -- JEFF.IN -- 65-0718E

There'll just be a FEW UNDERSTAND it. "As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the coming of the Son of man." What was saved? Five souls. In the days of Lot there was actually three saved. The wife started out and lost. So shall it be in the coming of the Son of man. There'll be VERY FEW saved, TRANSLATED in that time. One of the mysteries of that church being taken up, like Lot was taken--like Lot was taken out away.
35-2 IS THIS THE SIGN OF THE END SIR -- JEFF.IN -- 62-1230E

The Lord Jesus tells us in the Bible that there shall be two in one bed, and one shall be taken, and the other one shall be left. And two in a field, one shall be taken and the other left. Interesting, they are in a field, out at the elements, is it not because they had lost all their property? And the beds on the other side of the earth could very well be under the stars. Some who came this far will still fail.

May we be part of that little flock that'll be waiting when He comes, as He comes to pick it up across the world. For the--the rapture will be universal. "There'll be two in the bed; I'll take one; two in the field, and I'll take one." Shows it'll be night on one side of the earth and daylight on the other. See?
291 LAODICEAN CHURCH AGE -- JEFF.IN -- 60-1211E

"As the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of God rises a standard against it." One of these days IT'LL RAISE the church plumb out of its place, the borned again saints. "Two in the bed, I'll take one and leave one, two in the field I'll take one and leave one." It'll raise the church into the Presence of Christ to live forevermore.
E-121 WAY BACK THE -- SHREVEPORT.LA -- 62-1123

It'll be, maybe one leave Jeffersonville, just somebody come up missing. They'll say, "Well, you never..." The rest of them won't know. There'll be one leave Georgia. See? There'll be one leave in Africa. And let's say there'd be five hundred people a-living will go in the translation. Now, that ain't--that ain't the church body; this is the Bride.
57-5 {373} GOD IN SIMPLICITY -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0317M

There will be very, very few who will really and truly understand, and have the faith to go all the way in the Word, and will have this translation faith right at the end of this earthly journey. As we have seen already, there will be about 2200, one in a million of the world's Christians, as God's Prophet said many times. When the real Message will be restored and will go forth just before the latter rain, the greater majority of this multi million body of Message believers will reject that “sound doctrine” because they have denominated on some of the many fables that we find in the Message today.

Then, at the time of the squeeze, many more will not be able to resist the temptation when hunger and frustration has to be overcome, they will sign up when the going will get really hard. When we will lose all our properties and everything else because we will not sign up, and we will be beaten and cast out, even by family and neighbors, how many will trust the Lord for the manifestation of the third pull? And those who have taken a stand that far, will they have that great rapturing faith to enthusiastically leave the body when that summons to “come up hither” will sound from Heaven?

So, therefore, He knew that the great question laid, not whether He would rise again, or whether He would be crucified according to the Scriptures, or not whether He would ascend on high, and the Holy Spirit would come. But the question was: Would there be ANY FAITH LEFT ON EARTH at His coming? And where is faith come, by hearing the Word of God. That was His question. "Will there be faith on earth when I come?" Will He find people who believes His Word?
E-19 WATCHMAN WHAT OF THE NIGHT -- JEFF.IN -- 58-1130

The amount of faith we have is really based on how much we love the Lord Jesus, that is why the Capstone is love. Those of us who deeply love the Lord above anything else, and believe and trust Him all the way, and walk by the leading of the Holy Spirit, and understand the sequence of events as it was explained to us by Brother Branham according to the Bible, then we will be those sons of God without whom the dead in Christ cannot be made perfect as Hebrews 11:40 tells us. When we will hear that trumpet of Revelation 4:1 calling us to “come up hither,” and that great translation faith within us has answered positively, and our souls have left our bodies and have entered the waiting Theophany bodies, and we are in the translation to meet the dead in Christ, then we have made it already. At that point in time we have absolutely made it, that is then the end of our faith according to 1 Peter 1:9, and the salvation of our souls and bodies will then already be irreversibly assured. I humbly hope and trust that this chapter will be a contribution that our precious Lord will find people on earth who believe His Word, and make themselves ready for His second coming in Glory.
