TEXT: John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
60-0515M THE.REJECTED.KING_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN V-2 N-23 SUNDAY_ Oh, my precious friend, my beloved, my darlings of the Gospel, my begotten children unto God, listen to me, your pastor. You… I wish there was some way I could explain it to you. There’s no words. I couldn’t find it. It’s not found anywhere. But just beyond this last breath is the most glorious thing that you ever… There is no way to explain it. There’s no way; I just can’t do it. But whatever you do, friends, lay aside everything else till you get perfect love. Get to a spot that you can love everybody, every enemy, everything else. That one visit there to me has made me a different man. I can never, never, never be the same Brother Branham that I was.
WHAT’S NEXT FOR THE BRIDE OF CHRIST (2020)? THE COMFORT OF CHRIST COMING!
1 Thess 4:13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. 15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
2000 YEARS TO THE FLOOD, 2000 YEARS TO CHRIST, 2000 YEARS TO WHERE WE ARE TODAY. WE ARE PROMISED A RAPTURE/RESURRECTION, A MARRIAGE SUPPER FOR 3 AND 1/2 YEARS WHILE THE EARTH GOES THROUGH THE GREAT TRIBULATION. THEN 1000 YEAR MILLENNIUM WITH CHRIST.
SIX DAYS IN CREATION ON THE SEVENTH GOD RESTED.
2 Peter 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
WHERE WE AT, WHAT DID OUR PROPHET SAY? WHAT ARE WE WAITING FOR?
64-0401 THE.IDENTIFIED.CHRIST.OF.ALL.AGES_ LOUISVILLE.MS – So, the Bible is perfectly true. And that’s what we stand on: the Bible. It must be THUS SAITH THE LORD. Now, we do believe that God can do things that’s not written in His Word, because He’s God. He does whatever He wishes. But, yet, I like to see anything, when it comes in a line of a doctrine, come out of the Bible. Because, I believe that the Bible is the full revelation of Jesus Christ. The Bible said that’s what It is. It is the revelation of Jesus Christ. And nothing is to be added to It, or anything taken from It. So, I like to stay right in what It says and what It promises.
58-0618 HANDWRITING.ON.THE.WALL_ GREENVILLE.SC – And anyone could look upon the streets, and read the newspapers, and listen to the radio. And we all are aware that something is wrong. And being that it is wrong, God’s Bible never leaves us without an answer to these things. And to see the condition our nation has got into, we know that there cannot be anything left but judgment to us. And I say this statement without any apology. If God lets the United States of America, our lovely country and home, get by without judgment, He will be duty bound to resurrect Sodom and Gomorrah and apologize for burning them up. That’s right. For we’re guilty of the same sins.
62-0908 PRESENT.STAGE.OF.MY.MINISTRY_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN – We believe that it’s near the end. We see that as we have been teaching here, the Laodicean Church Age is now on, we see there can’t be nothing else happen but the Coming of the Lord. And, Lord, wouldn’t that be a great crown for the Word, to see the Crown Himself come? I’d like to be standing here and say, “There He is, that’s the Lamb.” Like John did. “Behold the Lamb that we have waited on, this is He.” The Lord will quickly come to His temple, take away His people in a Rapture.
THAT HAS BEEN FULFILLED!
64-0719M THE.FEAST.OF.THE.TRUMPETS_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN – 307 The seventh angel, messenger, say, “Behold the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world!” Not, “behold my Methodist, my Baptist, my Pentecostal.” But, “The Word, the Son of God, the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world,” for no other foundations is there! You see?
63-0623E THE.FLASHING.RED.LIGHT.OF.THE.SIGN.OF.HIS.COMING_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN – We see it’s pointing, every–every milepost, everything, every needle, every compass, is set straight onto His Coming. We’re at the end. There is nothing else that I know to happen but the Coming of the Lord.
65-0822M CHRIST.IS.REVEALED.IN.HIS.OWN.WORD_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN V-4 N-10 SUNDAY_ So there can’t be no organization left, neither can there be any further advancement than what’s going right now, for she’ll burn before the day breaks again. The revival is over, across the nation. There ain’t going to be no more revivals, big sweeping revivals; this nation never receive it. You might have a intellectual gathering. But, I mean, a Spiritual revival, we’ve seen all of it. I hope you’re catching it. I’m saying it in such a way that–that I hope you get it. See? It’s over.
A fine minister said, a while ago, said, “Brother Branham, if I could just have the joy of the Lord in my heart!”
I said, “Son, the revival is over.” See?
« 156 † Now the stabilizers has been put on the ship. Great fearful waves are out here before us; but we know, just beyond that wave yonder, we’re nearing the shore. See? We’re nearing the shore. Just stay stabled. Just stay in the Word. Stay with God. No matter how you feel, what anything else; stay right with the Word. Let–let–let it stay stable, when you see all these great big old clouds around us, and storms coming, and atomic bombs, and everything else they’re talking about. But our stabilizer is right straight in the Word. God said it would be here; we’ll crest every one of them. Yeah, we’ll go right over the top of them. Yes, indeed! They, they can’t sink us. They can’t drown us. You put us in the grave; we’ll come out again. That’s just all there is to it. There ain’t no way in the world to keep it down there. We’ll crest every one of them, ’cause our great Chief Captain is calling at the other side.
65-0815 AND.KNOWETH.IT.NOT_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN – 39 Let’s think of the Laodicea Church Age and its condition today. As far as I know, I don’t see anything to hinder, at this time, the Coming of the Lord Jesus, outside of the readiness of His Church.
WE ARE ONLY WAITING FOR THE LAST ONE!
64-0415 CHRIST.IS.IDENTIFIED.THE.SAME.IN.ALL.GENERATIONS_ 10 † We all believe in the Coming of the Lord, that His Coming is soon at hand. We believe It’s at hand now. We don’t know just what time it’ll be that He will arrive. In view of this, we want to put forth every effort that we know how, to further the Kingdom and get that last person saved into the Kingdom. And when the last one is saved, there will not be one extra. It’ll just be just so many. And when that last one is brought in, the Body of Christ is completed, the Rapture will come.
THE SIGN TO THE ELECTED CHURCH
64-0319 CALLING.JESUS.ON.THE.SCENE_ DENHAM.SPRINGS.LA – 191 And I want to ask you something. Without any prayer cards,… -out anybody up here, if that great Holy Spirit will come down here, and by the anointing of you and the anointing on me, and will identify that Jesus Christ is working in among us like this, what more could He do? There is not another promise in the Bible, above that. That’s the supreme promise. How many knows that? Sure, it is. It’s the last thing to the church age.
192 The Jews, in time of the Tribulation period, and on the… there they have a–a visit back there, but not to the Gentile church.
193 This is the last thing promised to the Gentile. It’s true. See, it was the Gentiles down there in Sodom, was going to be burned. And that, here is the Bride, which was the Royal Seed of Abraham, being the Bride called out from amongst the Gentile. That’s their ending sign, all of it.
THEN WHAT WILL WE MISS OUT ON?
John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
64-0126 WHAT.SHALL.WE.DO.WITH.THIS.JESUS.CALLED.CHRIST_ PHOENIX.AZ – 76 Someone said, the other day when I was talking, said, “Brother Branham, you don’t believe then the church will go through the tribulation?”
77 I said, “I believe the church will, but not the Bride.” The church will go through the tribulation, yes, sir, but the Bride is free from it. She’ll go in the Rapture, in a moment, in a twinkling of an eye. She’ll be caught up to meet her Lord in the air, for the Wedding Supper. She has nothing to go through any tribulation about; her Lord has paid her price.
63-0714E HUMBLE.THYSELF_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN – Across the nation, will come, those who are dead in Christ will rise first. The Rapture will take place, the Church will be taken Home. And then the Tribulation will set in, and, oh, my, we don’t want to be here during that time. I don’t want to be here in the Tribulation. No. God forbid that any of us would ever be here during that time. Because, “he that’s filthy is filthy still; he that’s holy is holy still; he that’s righteous is righteous still.”
63-0323 THE.SIXTH.SEAL_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN – And we’re living in a terrific time, the time that–that… You see, these things that we’re in now, that we’re studying right now, is after the Church is done gone. See? These things are the tribulation period. And I think it ought to be truly settled in every believer’s heart that this Church never takes the tribulation period. You cannot put nowhere the Church in tribulation. I… You put the church there, but not the Bride. See, see? The Bride’s gone on, ’cause (See?) She–she has not one sin, not a thing against Her. The grace of God has covered her over, and the Bleach has took every sin so far away, there’s not even a–ever a remembrance of it, not a thing but purity, perfect in the Presence of God. Oh, it–it ought to make the Bride get down on her knees and cry out to God.
63-0323 THE.SIXTH.SEAL_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN – Now, that’s exactly what taken place. Then God dealt with the Gentiles till He took out a people for His Name. As soon as the Gentile church is taken out, He taken up the Church. And when He did, the sleeping virgin, the church itself (The Bride went up.), and the church itself was put into outer darkness, where there’s weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth, and the same time the tribulation falls upon that people.
64-0830E QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS.4_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN COD SUNDAY_ – The Bride, when she’s taken from the church, then the church age will cease. Laodicea goes into chaos; the Bride goes to glory; and the tribulation period sets in upon the sleeping virgin for three and a half years while Israel is getting its prophecy; then tribulation sets in upon Israel; and then comes the battle of Armageddon which destroys all things. And then, the Bride returns back with the Groom for a thousand years, the Millennium reign; after that comes the white throne judgment; after that comes the new heavens and new earth and the new city coming down from God out of heaven. Eternity and time blends together.
« 364-1 † LAODICEAN.CHURCH.AGE – CHURCH.AGE.BOOK – Harvest time. Yes, harvest time. The two vines that grew together and intertwined their branches are now to be separated. The fruits of those vines which were at such variance will be gathered into separate garners. The two spirits will go to their separate destinations. Now it is time to heed the final call that comes only to the Wheat Bride, ‘Come out of her My people that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye (wheat) receive not her (tares) plagues (the great tribulation of the sixth seal and Matthew 24).
64-0719M THE.FEAST.OF.THE.TRUMPETS_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN – 186 And so will it be upon the Bride, and so is it on the Bride. We unworthy creatures, deserving of hell, but His grace holds us through it. Look at how many lost and blind! How many, how many sinners was there in the world, the hour I got saved! God saved me for a purpose; and I’m determined, by His will, to do that purpose. I don’t care what anything else goes; I want to do it.
187 And in the hour when I see all the churches, their great glamour, “and rich, and have need of nothing,” they say; and see them, miserable, wretched, blind; then patting you on the shoulders, want you to compromise with them. I was born for a purpose, that’s to condemn that thing and to call out. This I do.
