NECESSITY OF AN OUTPOURING BEFORE THE RAPTURE


CHAPTER TWO

And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness…But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. Romans 8:10-11.
St. John 3:34: For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.
Romans 8:19-20: For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope.

May the Lord add a blessing to the reading of His Word.
Oh blessed Word of God! I don't know how many really love to read their Bibles, but I tell you it is sweet to read the Scriptures. It is so wonderful, so great when we read about our promises.
I want to tie together some little things on the Outpouring of the Holy Spirit, which gets a little deeper here. Little fellows that do not know these things will benefit. Try to grasp these little things concerning the Outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
Necessity of an Outpouring before the Rapture. Necessity! There is a necessity of an Outpouring of the Holy Spirit before the rapture. We can confirm this right away and many of you are familiar with the quotation of Brother Branham:


NECESSITY-NEW OUTPOURING

Quote W.M.B.: "This age started just after the turn of the twentieth century. As it was to be the age in which the true church would return to being the Bride she was at Pentecost, we know that there must of necessity be a return of dynamic power. The believers sensed this in their spirits and began crying to God for a new outpouring such as was in the first century. Church Age p.377.


FINAL QUICKENING- NOT COME IN 1906

Quote: "What seemed to be the answer came as many began to speak in tongues and manifest gifts of the Spirit. It was then believed that this was indeed the long awaited RESTORATION. It was not… Thus what was thought to be the restoration and the final quickening unto the rapture had not come. Church Age Book Chapter 10, pages 377-378.


IN HER WILL BE THE FULNESS OF PENTECOST

Quote: 379-1 In her will be the fulness of Pentecost… It is "Thus saith the Lord" for that is what Joel 2:23-26 says. Church Age Book Chapter 10.


GOD WILL TAKE THE CHURCH BACK TO PENTECOST

Quote: God will take the church right back to Pentecost of the beginning. God isn't going to plant a new Church, but is going to bring His original planting back to original seed. He is doing it as stated in verse 23, by the teaching, or "former" rain. Next will come the harvest rain or rapturing faith. Church Age Book Chapter 10 page 379-380.


OUTPOURING - A MUST FOR THE RAPTURE

I am never weary, never tired of preaching God's Promise. Yes, we'll preach the Promise of God until it comes. Even after it comes, we will still be talking about the Promise of God, saying, "This is that, which was prophesied by William Branham; this is that which was spoken of by Robert Lee Lambert; this is that which was spoken of by Brother Parylla; this is that which was spoken of by Pastor McGahee; this is that which we had been telling you about all the years concerning the great Power of the Holy Spirit."
Seeing that we came by and the Lord supernaturally brought out the messages on the Outpouring of the Holy Spirit, we want to tie things that probably have been a little cloudy for the children and outside there amongst our brethren. I want to lay emphasis on the rapture and the Outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
Now we heard the term "rapture" for a long time-since we were in organization. There are churches that do not believe in the rapture. However, that word "rapture" is not found in the Bible, but there are other Scriptures to support a rapture. The "rapture" simply means the secret catching away of the end time Church, the Bride of Christ, together with the sleeping saints. This is very popular over in the so-called full gospel churches, so-called Pentecostals and even the Jehovah Witnesses. They have looked for a rapture for many years.
I saw a picture of the "rapture" taking place, and women had high heel shoes, mini skirts, and chopped off hair; and all of them were going up, and they reached a good height. They are expecting to go in the rapture in that condition. Beloved, the rapture is a serious affair. The rapture is not for sinners; it is not for church members; the rapture is not for people that are not living what the Bible tells them to live.
God sent a prophet. His name was William Branham, anointed by the spirit of Elijah, Malachi 4:5-6. This Scripture was fulfilled in the person of William Branham. That is a settled issue amongst us here. We are believers of that message. In his message, there was a Promise that God will send another Outpouring of the Holy Spirit before the rapture takes place. People who rejected that message and the Promise continue to look forward for a rapture and they are desperate about it. They think that all these Pentecostals, so called full-gospel people-wearing pants, chopping off their hair, living in adultery-and all the ministers there-on the television, radio, on the field, taking the people back to Sodom and Gomorrah, living in adultery, fornication, a bunch of money Satans-will go in the rapture any day. That is not what we are talking about. We are talking about something far greater than that.
The rapture is a secret catching away and it is for Christians. You will receive this Outpouring of the Holy Spirit, or you will not go in the rapture. That is the purpose of the Outpouring. If there is anybody that is seated here or elsewhere that is waiting for the rapture, thinking that "it could take place any day now," you are deceived. There is something before the rapture. I Thessalonians 4:16 and I Corinthians 15:51 tell us about a rapture-a mystery catching away and the resurrection.

I Thessalonians 4:16-17: 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:
"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.

I Corinthians 15:51-54: Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

The religious world is so deceived concerning this rapture that they have set dates. (The Jehovah Witnesses, Seventh Day Adventists, and other organizations). That spirit followed right under the message, and they have also set dates. In 1970, they expected to leave us and go in the rapture; and in 1973 there was another date set; and another in 1977. All failed because they cannot go in the rapture without this Outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
For you to sit and wait on a rapture, not knowing how this rapture is going to take place, is gross deception. The majority of people that follow the message today just think that the rapture is going to come at any moment, nevertheless, they have enough time to fish and hunt and wallow in Sodom and Gomorrah until the rapture comes.


FAITH OF TEN VIRGINS DETERMINED BY OUTPOURING

There are two groups that are following this message right today. One is sitting in a Laodicean condition, waiting for the rapture; and there is another group that is pressing towards an Outpouring of the Holy Spirit because they know there must of necessity be an Outpouring of the Holy Spirit to bring about this rapture Now that is what Brother Branham contended for and that is what Brother Lambert contended for. His contention was that you cannot go in the rapture without an Outpouring of the Holy Spirit. There are hundreds of quotations that tell you that there must of necessity be a revival and Power to the Bride before the rapture takes place. Many are included in Chapter One of this book.
Matthew 24:14: And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
There are signs before the rapture; there are Scriptures to be fulfilled before the rapture. People, in their ignorance, sit down and wait for the rapture. Another group that follows the message is desperate after this Promise. I could look in the Bible and see that there were two groups of people in Matthew 25: one the foolish virgins and the other wise virgins. The foolish virgins thought that they were okay, packed up, sealed up and ready to go, until the last moment; the second group was actually prepared; and the Bridegroom came, took them in, and shut the door. The foolish were crying outside, knocking at the door saying, "Let us in," even because they were deceived. They missed the mark; they missed the Promise that was preached by the prophet. They missed the Promise that was echoed so loudly by Malachi 4:5-6, that we must of necessity have another Outpouring of the Holy Spirit before the rapture.


NONE IS PRESENTLY QUALIFIED FOR RAPTURE

We are a people who are settled on these things. We believe that there must be a return of Power. We want to line up these things and show you how clearly that is in the Word of God, if you have never seen it. I want to let you know, together with the whole world that will listen to this, that the Church does not now possess that Outpouring and the Power to take you in the rapture, but we are promised to have it. Let that be established. There is not a single individual, not a church upon earth that presently possesses this great Power that Brother Branham spoke about in the Church Age, ("there must of necessity be a return of dynamic power") including us here, and all that believe EODH and everyone that believes the way that we believe. There is not a church or individual that possesses that Power to go now in the rapture. That makes me bold to say that if the rapture will take place here at this minute, nobody goes in the rapture. Nobody is qualified for the rapture.
The Prophet of God said:


SONS OF GOD TO BE MANIFESTED BEFORE WE GO ANYWHERE

Quote: 27 …sons of God are manifested before we even go anywhere. Manifested Sons Of God 60-0518.


WE HAVE THE HOLY GHOST-BUT NEED POWER FOR RAPTURE

There is not a church today upon the face of the earth with that kind of Power to go in the rapture. Beloved, if the rapture is so close, and we do not have this Power, how anxious we should be to get it. Now that is the emphasis; that is the reason for preaching; that is the reason for pulling you up into prayer, teaching you how to meditate, teaching you how to contact the Spirit, teaching you how to clean up your lives and set your hearts in order for that upper room experience. We must have a greater Power than we now have.

When we speak like that, people think that we are saying that we don't have the Holy Ghost, but we do have the Holy Ghost. Yes. People think that we are saying that nobody has the Holy Ghost. That is not true. I believe that we have more of the Holy Ghost here today than all of the followers of the message put together. We have the dynamic power of the Holy Spirit moving in our midst, the great Christ, the Lord. I believe that Revelation 10:1, the mighty Angel, comes and walk up and down these corridors in His mighty power. So now, we are not denying the Holy Ghost. We are saved by the Holy Ghost; we preach by the Holy Ghost; we sing by the Holy Ghost; we live by the Holy Ghost.

Romans 8:9: …if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

But we belong to the Lord; the Spirit of the Lord is in us; we are born again of the Spirit. We are talking about a Promise of God that was made to the Church before the rapture can take place. I am anchoring down the fact that we need Power, and it is a necessity before the rapture.


POWER FOR REVIVAL

Now, just in case the children did not understand. You heard of the rapture, Little Ones? I want to outline something to you in a simple form. Before the rapture takes place, there must be a Bride's revival that will gather the Bride out of every organization, from the world and from the mixed multitude that now follow Brother Branham's message. There will be a Bride's revival of supernatural Power.


BRIDE'S REVIVAL -WE'RE LOOKING FOR IT- HE PROMISED IT- HE WILL SEND IT

Quote WM.B.: 253-2 {182} The Bride hasn't had a revival yet… We're looking for it. It will take those seven unknown thunders back there to wake her up again. He will send it. He promised it. The Third Seal 63-0320


ANOTHER REVIVAL - IT'S A PROMISE

Quote: 4 I was getting pretty old, and I thought, "Will there be another revival, I'll see another time?" And just remember, from the west will come a white horse rider. We'll ride this trail again. That's right. Soon as we get ready. It's a promise. God's Only Provided Place Of Worship 65-1128m.

How is that going to come? It is going to come by another Outpouring of the Holy Spirit.


ANOINTING STRIKE CHURCH - POWER, REVIVAL SHAKE THE WORLD

Quote W.M.B.: E-62 That anointing will strike the whole church… The sick will be healed by a word; the blind will see; the deaf will hear; the dead will be raised up; and the power of God will shake the world with the church of the living God…and it's going to start a revival that'll shake the world. I believe it. Speak To This Mountain 59-1123.

That is why you are not seeing revival anywhere upon the face of the earth. You heard about somebody who got healed, and a next brother got healed. We thank God for that. Somebody got saved, they danced and sang, and praised the Lord, but cannot manifest the Power of God like is found in the book of Acts. They cannot manifest the Power of God like Brother Branham manifested. They are too ashamed to admit it, but the fact is that they are lacking this dynamic Power for that revival. Now that only comes by another Outpouring of the Holy Spirit. You are not going to see any great manifestation until the Power comes. The Power has to come. The great Power that is promised to us must come before revival.
A man wrote me this morning. He was complaining how I believe that nobody has to have the virtues, and that I don't believe in signs and wonders and miracles. That's a lie. I wrote him back and said, "Where did I say so? Where did I say that a man doesn't have to have the virtues? Please answer me right back and let me know where you got that. 'Receive not an accusation against an elder.'" I said, "I'm a firm believer in signs, wonders, and miracles; and I contend for a Super-Church. I believe that a man must possess all seven virtues before the Capstone comes upon him." The very thing that I am contending for is the very thing that somebody lied to that man about, or he misread something somewhere. I believe in miracles!
Remember that word, "necessity." The reason that you are not seeing any revival around the world today amongst the followers of the message is because it is necessary that they first have this Power that is promised to the Church before they can manifest it. We have some healing by faith, but it is blown out of proportion to imitate the Apostolic Church and the ministry of the Prophet. That is typical Pentecostalism.


POWER FOR FIRST RESURRECTION, BEFORE RAPTURE

Do you know that before the rapture takes place you must have the resurrection of the dead saints? There must of necessity be a resurrection of the saints. In I Corinthians 15:51-52, what follows after that resurrection is a changed body. Now a changed body is different from the rapture. The Lord will resurrect the bodies of the saints of God from way back down there throughout the seven Church Ages. Only after they are resurrected, the living saints of God have a changed body. After the resurrection and after the changed body, then comes the catching away of the Bride.
In order to bring the dead from the grave, change your body, and go in the rapture, you need dynamic Power. You need Power in such a measure as we do not have now. So "there must of necessity be a return of dynamic power." That is the necessity of having this Power come upon the Church. That is what we are contending for.
I want somebody to show us where we are wrong. No, we are right in Brother Branham's message. Unbelievers today, false anointed ones, incarnated devils will fight you down to the last and tell you that there is nothing more for the Church and all is over!


HERETICS DENY POWER OF GOD

That is what that man, Lambert, fought against until they murdered him. From the beginning, he was beaten from one end of the country to the next end of the country. They fought him and told him that they had perfect faith, they had perfect love, they had the fullness of God in them, and all was over.
Some of these heretics are still preaching that "all is over" around the world, but EODH has gone out to expose them. They said that the only thing left is the rapture now, and they denied the very Power of God. The Bible speaks of such people that would deny the Power of God in the last days.
II Timothy 3:1, 5: This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come…Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

This is proving the Outpouring of the Holy Spirit. There is something here to take place which is the first resurrection. The rapture isn't gone yet. The second thing to take place is that while we are living, this body must be changed into immortality. When we change into immortality, we will be walking up and down the face of the earth and the rapture has not yet gone.


CHANGED BODY AND RAPTURE ARE DIFFERENT

Now don't think that is incredible. Our Lord came with an incorruptible body, a changed body, and He was walking up and down the earth for forty days. He came down there, He said, "You think I'm a spirit? Let me break this bread and I will show you that I will eat it." Oh my, isn't it wonderful? He said, "I'm telling you, I'm not a spirit Feel me, a spirit hath not flesh and bones; I have flesh and bones. I will break this bread and eat it. A spirit doesn't eat bread." After He walked the face of the earth for forty days and communicated with His disciples, then and only then did He start going up in the rapture. I am showing you that the changed body and the rapture are two different articles.
I am not sure how long that we will be here with our changed bodies, but I know for sure that there will be a resurrection.
He said that the saints of God will be resurrected in the first resurrection and they will be upon the earth some who were with the Prophet quoted him as saying for thirty to thirty- five days


THOSE THAT ARE DEAD WILL COME FORTH FIRST

Quote W.M.B.: 715-135 II Thessalonians, 5th chapter… 'the dead in Christ shall rise first,' the privilege of those that are dead will come forth first… 'Then we which are alive and remain shall be changed in a moment, twinkling of an eye, and shall be caught up together with them to meet the Lord in the air.' Questions And Answers 62-0527.


WE ALL MEET RIGHT HERE TOGETHER

Quote: 115 The going up of the saints in the resurrection. You see, we all meet right here together…for the trumpet of God shall sound, and the dead in Christ shall rise first; and we shall be caught up together with them (Amen.)--with them (here we are, meeting right here) to go to meet the Lord in the air. Seventy Weeks Of Daniel 61-0806.

I believe the prophet, even because we have a type. When Jesus was resurrected from the sepulcher, He stayed upon the earth forty days. So then it is no marvel that the saints of God could be resurrected and be upon the earth for thirty to thirty-five days. But there will be a change "…in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye…" You see? Before, you will be walking, preaching, hiding somewhere, and the World Council of Churches will be after us. When the time comes, there is a sweep that comes over us. Brother Lambert called that "seven waves of glory". There are seven waves of glory-mighty power-is going to sweep over you. When it sweeps over, you are changed!


SWEEP OVER US AND YOU'RE CHANGED

Quote W.M.B.: 934 These mortal bodies will not see death, but just of a sudden, there'll be like a sweep go over us, and you're changed. You're turned back like Abraham was, from an old man to a young man, from an old woman to a young woman. Questions and Answers 64-0823m.


WAVE AFTER WAVE OF THE SPIRIT - RESURRECTION - I'LL KNOW MY PEOPLE

Quote: 97 There will be wave after wave of His glory will come across the earth, and the resurrection of the saints shall come…A great wave of that same Spirit… "He that was last will be first, and he that was first will be last."…That's the order of the resurrection…And every generation will come successfully, right as it went down…I'll know my people. The next fellow, my dad will know his people. Seven Church Ages 54-0512.

My Lord, if you think of the reality of that change! We could just spend another hour thinking on the reality of that change! I was talking about Abraham and Sarah, and that mighty God, mighty Angel came down? When you hear the mighty Angel is upon earth, it is about time for that change.
I cannot get over that miracle up to now, since I preached about Abraham and Sarah becoming young again! Beloved, that is a miracle! They were in their tent over here, Abraham in-front of the door, and by the time they walked out they were young people-the old man and the old lady disappeared! I guess unbelievers were searching for a long time for the old man and the old lady. That was a miracle.
When we talk about the rapture, we are talking about the Lord coming by His Power and then changing your bodies. That makes us old people glad! Oh yes! Thirty or forty years old, we are suffering from old age symptoms. What a terrible thing! It's life. I always thought, "If I ever come to seventy, eighty I'll be creeping, the way that I feel!" The way that some feel, at thirty, thirty-five years, arthritis ate them up already, and they are bending, and limbering. By the time they reach eighty, they will be upon hands and knees! We need the Token, I am telling you that! I don't want to live here so long; we want the Token's Outpouring! We want that changed body, and we are going to have it! Oh my God!


POWER -REVIVAL-VOICE-BRIDEGROOM- THUNDERS GATHER BRIDE

"There must of necessity be a return of dynamic power," and when that dynamic Power comes, it breaks a revival. First of all, it breaks a revival amongst the brethren. What is the necessity of that revival? The necessity of that revival is to gather the elected Bride together under one Lord, one faith, one Baptism. See the necessity of that? All these assemblies that follow the message from around the world that claim to be the Bride, there is something that is going to move upon the face of the earth at that Outpouring that is going to pull all those elected members together. Now that they are hearing about this Promise, they are going to say, "That is it; it has come. That is what we read in the book called EODH! Yes, that's it!" Yes, nothing holds them. When that goes out it will be the Voice of the Bridegroom.


WHEN BRIDE REVIVAL BEGINS - MESSAGE SWEEP OUT TO CATCH THE BRIDE

Quote W.M.B.: 8-5 "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… …at that time there'll be a message sweep out to catch that Bride, catch that woman, elect. Invisible Union Of The Bride 65-1125.


VOICE - GETTING THE BRIDE TOGETHER

Quote: 152 The second is a voice of the resurrection. The same… loud voice in St. John 11:38 and 44 that called Lazarus from the grave. Getting the Bride together, and then the resurrection of the dead (See?), to be caught up with it. Rapture 65-1204.

They are moving with the Voice of the Bridegroom, the revelation, and that Voice of the Bridegroom will be the seven thunders. It will go out there and that will be the Voice of the Bridegroom, and it will gather the elected members from every group. In India, in Africa, throughout the Caribbean and throughout the world, no matter where they are, they are going to come together for the rapture. In one heart, one accord, one faith, one unity, they will believe the same thing. When that takes place, the revival would have started, and there will be dynamic Power. After this dynamic Power goes out, there comes a time that the resurrection will take place.
I Corinthians 15:51-52: Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.


FULLNESS OF GODHEAD FOR CHANGED BODY-RESURRECTION & RAPTURE

Now let me prove to you that the resurrection comes before the rapture. Those that go in the rapture are the sleeping saints since the days of Jesus, and also those who are alive. If we go in the rapture first, it means that they will still be sleeping in the grave There would have to be two raptures, but there are not two raptures; there is one rapture.
First of all, while we are in this ministry upon the earth, something is going to happen that brings the dead saints, all the ransomed body of the Lord, from the grave. They will appear to us and we will see them. They will identify themselves to us. They will help us in the time of the squeeze. They will direct us in the time of the squeeze. As we go along, because of this great resurrection and seeing them, we are building up faith, faith, faith. Faith is climbing. Oh, my! The ministry is coming to a close now; the last elect will come in through the Power of God. Then, what will happen is seven waves of glory will come over us, and then we are changed. Beloved, let us say that we are in this place here, and that change comes. Every one of us will look young again. Isn't that a wonderful thing? Young fellows, you will change. Yes, change! Whoever is missing hair, you will have a full head of hair.
Jesus said, …the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Matthew 10:30.
Resurrection, and then the changed body. This changed body has to come before the rapture. Before the resurrection takes place, we must have that Power upon earth to bring the resurrection.
We are not foolish people; we are not ignorant people. Outside there, you that will hear this tape, don't be ignorant! It takes Power to bring a revival. It takes Power to bring the resurrection. It takes Power for the changed body. What we have right now will not do it. That is why the foolish virgins were deceived, because they never believed this kind of doctrine. They thought they could have gone in the rapture with what they had. Now, where I want to pin this down is in Romans 8:10-11. I want to put up an argument with the whole world today.
Romans 8:10-11: But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

Friends, to bring about this resurrection, for you to be quickened and have a changed body for the rapture, the very same Spirit that indwelt Jesus-in the same measure-must be dwelling in us. Think of what I am saying.
Let me see if this is going to make sense to you now. What kind of a Spirit was dwelling in Jesus? The Spirit that dwelt in Jesus was the fullness of the Godhead bodily and it was a measure without any measurement. The Lord gave Him the Spirit without measure, so it was the fullness of the Godhead,bodily. The Promise that we are looking for and the dynamic Power that we are looking for is the same fullness of the Godhead that dwelt in our Lord Jesus Christ. Brother Paul is saying here that if that same Spirit-the fullness of the Godhead, all the Power that was in God, dwelt in Christ-will come into the Christian Church, it will do the same thing that it did for Jesus. Now what is it that caused Jesus to be resurrected from the dead after the man was dead almost three days? Well, this is the secret right here. Paul is saying what raised Jesus from the dead was the Spirit that was dwelling in Jesus. The Spirit that dwelt in Jesus was a Spirit without measure. It was the fullness of the Godhead bodily dwelling in Jesus. If you want to have that kind of resurrection, if you want to have that kind of Power, then take that same Spirit that was dwelling in Jesus and put it in the individual or put it in the Church and it will quicken your mortal bodies. Now upon that Scripture, we challenge the world!
Show us one church with the fullness of the Godhead in it. If you had the fullness of the Godhead in you for so many years, what are you doing on earth and why has not the Spirit of the Lord quickened your body yet?
The prophet of God said:


CAN'T EVEN GET FAITH FOR HEALING - LET ALONE THE RAPTURE

Quote W.M.B.: And as soon as God can get the thing ironed out, and the church get together, the rapture will come. But we can't even get faith for Divine healing let alone the rapture… Demonology 2 Religious 53-0609.

Quote: 128-2 {75} I believe that through those seven thunders will be revealed in the last days in order to get the Bride together for rapturing faith; because what we got right now, we wouldn't be able to do it…we can't have enough faith for Divine healing hardly. We've got to have enough faith to be changed in a moment and be swept up out of this earth. The First Seal 63-0318.

He said, in other words, "Don't talk about the rapture unless you can see dynamic power, signs and wonders working among you." So you will know that the rapture is about to take place when you see a revival break and signs and wonders and miracles come back in the Church like they had in the book of Acts.


WE WILL RETURN TO THE POWER OF PENTECOST TO WELCOME BACK JESUS

Quote W.M.B.: 108-4 In the last age there will be a group rise up, the True Bride of the last day, and she will listen to the Spirit. In that day of gross darkness the light will return by the pure Word and we will return to the power of Pentecost to welcome back the Lord Jesus Christ. Ephesian Church Age - Church Age Book Cpt.3.


POWERFUL DEMONSTRATION OF THE SPIRIT BEFORE RAPTURE

Quote: 361-1 "After a short and powerful demonstration of the Spirit this little hunted and persecuted group will go to be with Jesus." (Laodicean Church Age - Church Age Book Cpt.9)

Get my emphasis: this Power that we are expecting is the same Power that was in Jesus and that raised Him from the dead. The Power that raised Jesus from the dead is the only Power that is able to raise the saints of God that are sleeping, and is the same Power that will quicken your mortal bodies. That Power of the fullness of the Godhead is not in any church upon the face of the earth. This Power that raised Jesus from the dead is not in this church today. It is the Power that is promised to us, and it is going to come. This fullness of the Godhead bodily that dwelt in our Lord Jesus comes from Heaven as a sound of a mighty rushing wind again.


SOUND FROM HEAVEN - BAPTISM - RAPTURING GRACE

Quote: 15-1 When that Bride is called out and elected and set in the Book of Life, there'll come a sound from heaven that'll take such a baptism of the Holy Spirit into that Bride that'll take Her from the earth in a rapturing grace. God promised it. Three Kinds of Believers 63-1124E.


NO POWER: NO RAPTURE-CHANGED BODY, RESURRECTION

So we are not preaching fanaticism here. We are tying up these things to show you: no Power to the Church-no resurrection; no Power to the Church-no changed bodies; no Power to the Church-no rapture. I hope that anchors down here. "There must of necessity be a return of dynamic power" for the final quickening of the Church of God. Unless we see that Outpouring of the Holy Ghost, all the dead will remain in the grave and you will never be quickened to go in the rapture; and you will never go in the rapture until we see that Power. We have contended for that Power for the past thirty-eight years, from 1967 right down to 2005; and will continue to contend for It until it comes.
People think that they have that out there, and they can go in the rapture any day. They are deceived of the devil. We preach the truth and we know that we do not have that Power that dwelt in our Lord Jesus, in That measure. When it comes, we are going to know it. Yes, it is going to do something before it takes us in the rapture. It is going to prove that It is in us. This Power that dwelt in Jesus is the quickening Power. It is the rapture Power. It is the resurrection Power. Yes! This Power that was in Jesus is the very same Power to take us in the rapture. If we ought to have the same Power, then it ought to be the fullness of the Godhead bodily, because the Bible said that the fullness of the Godhead bodily dwelt in our Lord Jesus. By that Power, when He died, He rose again.
Was it a Power in Him that was able to raise Him from the dead? The Bible said that if that same Power comes in us and dwells in us, It will do the same thing. Did that Power raise Him from the dead? And after it raised Him from the dead, did it take Him in a rapture? Well now, that is the secret of the rapture! Oh glory to God! The secret of the rapture is the great fullness of the Godhead bodily coming down in the Bride!
You say, "Brother Bruce, I read in Brother Branham's message where he said that the seven thunders is going to bring rapturing faith." Yes, that is true, but he also said that "the seven thunders bring again the Headstone."


THUNDERS MYSTERY WILL BRING BACK HEADSTONE

Quote W.M.B.: 48-5 Is this the mystery of the thunders that will bring back the Headstone? Is This The Sign of The End, Sir? 62-1230E.

Quote: 47-1 …the pyramid is capped by the seven thunders. Is This The Sign of The End, Sir? 62-1230E.


SEVEN THUNDERS WILL GIVE FAITH FOR RAPTURING GRACE

Quote: 142-1 {166} …these seven thunders over in Revelations 10…We don't know what they are yet…it'll give faith for that rapturing grace for that Church to move out. The First Seal 63-0318.


SEVEN THUNDERS-RAPTURING FAITH -HEADSTONE

How will the seven thunders bring rapturing faith? The seven thunders bring rapturing faith because it is directly connected with the Outpouring of the Holy Spirit. When the Holy Spirit comes upon the Church of God, that is the same Power that raised Jesus from the dead. That is the same Power that is promised to us that will quicken our mortal bodies. So it is not two things that will change the Bride. The seven thunders bring again the Headstone. Yes, they are connected. The seven thunders, the seventh seal, will be broken to the public just before the Lord appears in the Heavens.
The early Church stopped short of the rapture and the resurrection of the saints. They had great Power that came on the day of Pentecost, and a great revival broke. There again I am proving to you that it only takes Power to bring the revival. Only when that Outpouring came on the day of Pentecost, then and only then, did they have a revival. The Church was in one accord, one unity, and they were going down the road. Signs, wonders, and miracles. It was the golden age of the Church. It was the early Apostolic Church. They stopped short of the resurrection and the rapture.
What stopped them? The thing that stopped the early Church and made them fail to enter into the resurrection and the rapture is Nicaea, Rome. They hybrid the message that Brother Paul was bringing to the Gentiles. They hybrid the Gospel, and it stopped the Church from going on to the resurrection and the rapture.


IF THE CHURCH HAD STAYED WITH THE WORD - RAPTURE WOULD HAVE GONE

Quote W.M.B.: E-39 Don't add nothing, don't take nothing away from it. Just keep it the way it is. Don't presume anything. Just have faith in the Word. If that Pentecostal church would've stayed with that, the rapture would done been gone. Presuming 62-0408.

Now I am happy about that, and every one of us should be happy about that, otherwise we would not be included. So the Lord had His plans; He had His program. He said, "All that the Father hath given me will come to me", no man pluck them out of my hands."


EARLY APOSTOLIC CHURCH STOPPED SHORT OF RAPTURE & RESURRECTION

In His Book were many names that were not manifested yet upon the face of the earth, so He had to allow this fall at Nicaea, Rome, as He allowed the fall of Eve in the Garden of Eden. He allowed the fall at Nicaea, Rome in order to bring us in, to cause us to be manifested here in the twenty-first century, to cause you little fellows to be born, to hear the Gospel, to make ready for the rapture. He is a good God.
The Lord allowed the Church to stop short of the resurrection and the rapture. That is the only thing that the early Church did not come to: a rapturing grace and a resurrection grace, otherwise, the Church would have been gone; the rapture would have taken place in the early apostolic Church. We would not be there. Then they would go up to Heaven, say, "Lord, some fellows are missing from this Book of Life! We better start all over." God does not do His business like that! No! He knew from the foundation of the world that there are many others that will come in by hearing the Gospel.
Watch something here, Brethren. The early Church stopped; and how did they stop? By the perversion of the Word of God. Everything was in place and the devil wanted to stop that rapture and resurrection. He perverted the message.
That is the same strategy of the devil today. We had a pure message that came by Malachi 4:5-6 and the devil wants to stop the rapture and the resurrection, so he started perverting the message; saying, "There won't be any Power coming; we can't go back to Pentecost; there will be no Outpouring of the Holy Spirit; we already have the Latter Rain; we already have the Outpouring; all that we have to wait upon is the rapture now; everybody sit down and wait, don't labor so hard!" He will turn everybody into foolish virgins if he had the chance. Now you see the strategy? Unbelief! Like in the Garden, and Nicaea, Rome.
What is it that the Lord had reserved to counteract that strategy? Notice something, the early Church did not have the opening of the Seals to expose the antichrist and the false anointed one, so they fell. But in the end time, for the Lord to stop the devil from preventing the people to go on to the resurrection and the rapture, He opened the Seals. The difference with us and the early Church is that we have the opening of the Seals that exposes all the strategies of Satan. Four horse riders; then the fifth seal-the Jews; the sixth seal tells us about those who misses the rapture; and the seventh seal, the secret of the Coming of the Lord and details concerning the great Outpouring of the Holy Spirit. You see what is happening? The only thing that saves this Church here today, and makes it unlike the early Church is the opening of the Seals. Isn't that wonderful? Now if the Seals were opened back there, Satan could not have deceived them with a revelation of it. The Seals are open today for that purpose.


ALL WHO MISSES REVELATION OF SEALS, MISSES OUTPOURING

That is why I am saying that every person that misses the revelation of the Seals will be deceived and they will not enter into that Outpouring. Any man upon the earth today that denies an Outpouring, and denies a revival to come for the Church, does not have a revelation of the Seals. If he had a revelation of the Seals, he would know very well what is promised to the Church, and he would know that every man that denies that Promise is an antichrist, an incarnated devil! I make no apology. Any man that fights another Outpouring of the Holy Ghost and revival and Spoken Word Power that is coming to the Church is an incarnated devil! If he is not, he is deceived by an incarnated devil and needs to repent! That is where we stand.
The of Satan deception is right around the world, that "there is no Outpouring, there is no dynamic Power, all is over." You see where the deception is? Do you see where the devil is? The devil is in those kinds of heresies. EODH has gone out to meet these incarnated devils and false anointed ones. Wave the Promise before the people and tell them that these heretics are lying. You can identify these heretics because they deny the Promise of God. That is how you identify the antichrist today because he denies the Promise of God.


AN UNBELIEVER TO PUT THE PROMISE IN ANOTHER AGE

Quote W.M.B.: 507-172 Now, when you see a man disagreeing with God's Word and saying, "Oh, that was for another age," when the promise is to whosoever will, let him come, just remember, he is a unbeliever and he's not of God. Questions and Answers 59-1223.


ANOTHER SPIRIT IN YOU TO PUT THE PROMISE FOR ANOTHER AGE

Quote: 136 The Bible promises these things…If you say you've got the Spirit of God in you, and God makes a certain promise in Here, how can that Holy Ghost punctuate It, say, "Well, it might be all right for another age. We don't believe it that way"? That ain't the Holy Spirit. Turn On The Light 64-0125.


DENIAL OF OUTPOURING IDENTIFIES "THE DEVIL"

When a man starts preaching, "No Outpouring, no revival, no Spoken Word Power, no more tent meetings for the Bride," Friends, he is an incarnated devil. That is how we know that. EODH has gone out there to wave the Promise before the people to bring them to the vision that "there must of necessity be a return of dynamic power." EODH takes that same Promise of God and identifies these heretics, because heretics and false anointed ones will deny the Promise of God. If they could get the people to deny the Promise of God, there is no Power for them to go in the rapture. See the strategy of the devil? Whenever you deny that Power coming to the Church, you are cutting yourself off from the rapture.
First, revival; second, resurrection; third, a changed body and then we can talk about the rapture, which is the catching away. Have you ever heard of the heresy that they have around the world today? Great men are now proclaiming that the rapture started in 1963 and the rapture is a period of time; the rapture has been progressing for the past years now and people don't know that. They say, "Since the opening of the Seals 'all is over' but the rapture is progressing." Isn't that madness? How will the rapture start and the dead saints did not come up yet? How will the rapture start and the body is not changed yet? The last item on the agenda is the catching away of the Church. The catching away of the Church only comes after the resurrection and changed body, so this is madness. The rapture could not start before the resurrection and it could not start before the changed body. They are lying to us.
The fullness of the Godhead that dwelt in our Lord Jesus is promised to the end time Bride to come and indwell the Bride. That resurrection is going to come by that Power. The changed body is going to come by that Power. I tied that right here in Romans 8:10-11. You cannot get away from that. The Power that was in Jesus was the fullness of the Godhead. That fullness of the Godhead is promised to us. In Ezekiel 47:1-5 there are four measures of Spirit.


FOUR MEASURES OF SPIRIT

Ezekiel 47:1-5: Afterward he brought me again unto the door of the house; and, behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward: for the forefront of the house stood toward the east, and the waters came down from under from the right side of the house, at the south side of the altar.
Then brought he me out of the way of the gate northward, and led me about the way without unto the utter gate by the way that looketh eastward; and, behold, there ran out waters on the right side.
And when the man that had the line in his hand went forth eastward, he measured a thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the waters were to the ankles
Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through the waters; the waters [were] to the knees. Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through; the waters were to the loins
Afterward he measured a thousand; and it was a river that I could not pass over: for the waters were risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed over.


RIVERS TO SWIM - A RESTORATION OF PENTECOST

Quote W.M.B.: 259-3 …the so-called Pentecostal Age… proved to be just the carrier to carry the life over into the age in which the true restoration comes and the Wheat Bride is manifested in the power spoken of by Ezekiel 47:2-5… for the waters were risen, waters to swim in… (Sardisean Church Age - Church Age Book Cpt.7.)

The first measure was to the ankle. The second measure was to the knees. The third measure was to the thigh, and the fourth measure was a river of water that we can swim in. So, the first measure of water was Luther with the ankle measurement; second was Wesley, with the knees measurement; and the third, so-called Pentecost, was the thighs, which was in 1906. They had a great outpouring of the Spirit, but what they thought was a return of Pentecost was not. What is promised to us, the end time Bride, is the measurement of the rivers of water, the Outpouring of the Holy Spirit. It is a measure that you have to swim in. That has not yet come. The first three measures of the Spirit came with Luther, Wesley, and so-called Pentecost and that is history, but your fourth measurement is rivers of waters. You say, "Preacher, how do you know that represents the fullness of God and the Holy Spirit?" Jesus said:

John 7:38-39: He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water
(But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given.…


HOLY GHOST NOT YET GIVEN OUT

Brethren, I am saying that the Holy Ghost is not yet given out in this measure. The Holy Ghost that Jesus was talking about was that fullness; that great measure of the Holy Ghost it was not yet given out. This measure of the rivers of water is not yet given out. It is the Outpouring of the Holy Spirit and it is yet to come.
There are different terminologies in the Scripture concerning this measure of the Spirit, or the Outpouring. There are different types in the Bible, but it relates to the same Promise. When it came on the day of Pentecost, the type of that great measure of the Spirit was called the Cornerstone. Why was it called the Cornerstone? It was called the Cornerstone because the Church foundation was being laid. The cornerstone is placed on the foundation of any building.

Jesus said: "The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of the corner…"
The head of the corner was the great Power of God that came on the day of Pentecost, but they had rejected the stone; Jesus was the stone.
Mark 12: 10-11: The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of the corner:
"This was the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?


CORNERSTONE AND CAPSTONE - SEVEN VIRTUES

That which was called the Cornerstone of the Church, back there, was an Outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Today, we are promised an Outpouring of the Holy Ghost and it is a type of the "Headstone". We are going to have the Headstone. That was a prophecy given to the prophet: the Headstone is going to come and we will have a Super Church. (Church Ages pg. 171) The prophet gave an entire lesson of how to receive that Headstone.
He said that you will put on seven virtues; and after that, then comes the Capstone upon you, the Headstone, the Lord Jesus Christ. Then you will be the living tabernacle of the Living God's dwelling place, where God moves and talks and walks within you.
The entire book "The Stature of a Perfect Man", confirms this message: that you must of necessity have all seven virtues before you have the Capstone. The Capstone and the Outpouring is the same article; and the fullness of the Godhead that raised Jesus from the dead is the same article. You cannot miss it.


DIFFERENT TERMINOLOGIES OF OUTPOURING

They are different terminologies of the great Promise of God. The next terminology for that great Promise of God to come to the end time Bride is called "the Latter Rain".
Fanatics around the world say that the Latter Rain is the Word of God and when Brother Branham brought the Word of God that was the Latter Rain. They lie. The Latter Rain is the Spirit of God. The prophet of God said:


LATTER RAIN WILL SWEEP THE WORLD

Quote W.M.B.: 55-4 Now, what they're trying to do, they're trying to manufacture a latter rain. Nonsense. Why, that latter rain will sweep the world, brother." Spoken Word Original Seed 62-0318M.

I am saying that the Capstone will sweep the world. I am saying the Outpouring will sweep the world. The Latter Rain will sweep the world. And when that Latter Rain comes, "…we know that there must of necessity be a return of dynamic power."


LATTER RAIN CAN COME ONLY AFTER FORMER RAIN

Quote W.M.B.: …the latter rain can come only after the former rain which is the spring or TEACHING rain. Church Age Book page 377.

The prophet came with a message and that was your teaching rain; the seeds were sown and were waiting for the Latter Rain. The Latter Rain is the Capstone; the Latter Rain is the river that overflowed; and again, we call it in Bride language, "the Token". It is one and the self-same article.
The Token, Young Fellows, is the Outpouring of the Holy Spirit. We say "Token" because it is a type. The Capstone is the same article, it is the Outpouring of the Holy Spirit The Latter Rain is the same article but it is only typed differently in the Scriptures. Those things have not yet come. They are not here. That is what we are contending for. Now when It comes, It will change our mortal bodies; It will bring a certain manifestation upon the earth.


OUTPOURING FOR MANIFESTED SONS

Let me inject this here. This is the Power that will bring the manifested sons of God on the earth. Now you see where this is tied up? Why are they called "manifested sons of God"? Because they are going to manifest Something! They are going to display Something. Now Jesus was a manifested Son of God. And if this would not offend people, Brother Branham was a manifested son of God. Yes. Peter was a manifested son of God; Paul was a manifested son of God because they were manifesting the Gospel. They were manifesting the promises of God that was in the Gospel of our Lord Jesus, so that is why they were called "manifested sons of God". Here the whole world is crying, groaning to see the manifestation of the sons of God.
I am saying that there will be no manifested sons of God upon the face of the earth until this Token comes. Until this Outpouring comes, until the Latter Rain comes, until the fullness of the Godhead comes into the Bride, until the Capstone comes, there will be no manifested sons of God on the earth. This thing is very plain. Is not this thing very simple that a fool shall not err therein?
It takes an utter fool to sit down and wait on resurrection, wait on a changed body and wait on a rapture without Power. He has to be a dead unbeliever! Yes, sir! And upon that basis, we defy every heretic, every unbeliever in the world and challenge them to show us how the dead is coming from the grave if there is not a Power coming. Show us how our bodies will be changed if you don't believe in a Power coming. Show us how the manifested sons of God will be upon the earth, unless we have that Power coming. I am saying that it is necessary that we have that Power come to the Church, and we must have it right away or we die! "Unless the Lord cut the day short, we will all perish." Our aims, ambitions, and our desires must now be focused upon that Promise of God.
Again, I am double proving as I have proved before, that without that Outpouring, Friends, there is no revival. Without that Outpouring, there is no rapture. Now I'm proving to you without that Outpouring, there is no changed body. Without that Outpouring, there is no resurrection. I am proving again to you, without that Outpouring, there are no manifested sons of God.
These manifested sons of God that the world and all creation are crying for are us. God also has many sons around the world, but we are not yet manifested. Now when I talk about manifested sons of God don't think that they're going to come from this place and the next place and the next place, and that you'll be happy to see them. No, you are one of them but you are not yet manifested. So right now you're a son of God but not manifested. These sons of God that are seated here today don't realize what they were born for, but let that Power hit them and you will see something: God will manifest them.

I John 3:2: Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

The whole creation is crying around the world-the birds, the beasts, the flowers. Yes, everything is crying-the oceans, every creature. Mankind upon the face of the earth is groaning and crying within but they don't know what they are crying for. Brother Paul knew what they were crying for. He said:

Romans 8:22-23: For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.


SEVEN THUNDERS, HEADSTONE FOR MANIFESTED SONS

The prophet gave us little examples of these manifested sons of God when they come on the scene. Here is something that I will tie in. What will bring about these manifested sons of God is none other than the seven thunders because the seven thunders bring again the Headstone. What will they be manifesting? There is only one kind of ministry that is promised to the end time Bride and that is "Speak the Word Power". "Spoken Word" ministry is the only kind of ministry that is promised to the end time Bride. Brother Branham came through one phase of his ministry, second phase of his ministry, third phase of his ministry-which in type he called "the third pull" (that was Spoken Word Power). These manifested sons of God are coming to manifest Spoken Word Power and the whole creation crieth and groaneth for them! That is where the Speak the Word ministry is: it is coming through the manifested sons of God.
Now all the diseases that we now see, read, and hear about upon the face of the earth, is setting the stage for this ministry. You see how many AIDS patients that there are upon the earth? Over forty million right now! How many did not report themselves as AIDS patients? How many will spread that disease to others for the rest of this year? Let us say it reaches to eighty million, then so many more people will get that disease. Now that is not happening by chance. The prophet of God says that there is coming a disease upon the earth that cancer will be a toothache to it!


CANCER'S A TOOTHACHE TO WHAT'S COMING

Quote W.M.B.: 88 You think cancer's something? The Bible said there's coming a time when men will rot right in their flesh, and the buzzards will eat off of carcasses before they even die. Cancer's a toothache to what's a coming. But, remember, that horrible thing was forbidden in that day to touch those who had the Seal of God. That's what we're striving for now, to get in and be positionally placed into the Kingdom of God before these horrible plagues strike. Adoption 60-0522E.


AIDS - CURSE OF SODOM & GOMORRAH

Look at this AIDS epidemic. I believe that is one of them that has set the stage; and you know that that is a Sodom and Gomorrah disease. It was right in the papers, that they dug up a mummy, a young man, from where the Lord burned those cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. Some how or the other, they checked that man out and they proved that he died from AIDS. You can see the just punishment that the Lord is giving the people of this world-He brought back a disease from way down there in Sodom and Gomorrah, and He allowed it to come upon the sodomites. Look where it started. It started among the homosexuals, yes, sodomites! So it's a disease; it's a curse upon people here upon the earth! That curse even falls upon the innocent children born with AIDS.
These manifested sons of God are going to have that Power to stop that disease. This is the kind of patients that we will be dealing with. The Lord, I believe, is coming in Power by these manifested sons of God. Beloved, by the click of the finger, by the Spoken Word, the Lord will just heal all these AIDS cases waiting here. When science is dumbfounded and they cannot find a cure for it, the Lord, just by the click of the finger-"Be healed. Be healed. Be healed. Be healed." And then they go out whole. Yes, I believe it is going to be dynamic Power!
So it is not only diseases now, they will control nature. "…Creation groaneth" for them. Certain things will happen upon the earth because of the rejection of the Gospel. They will be able to bring up a storm. They will be able to curse nations and bring up a famine. They will be able to curse people with diseases. Look in the book of Acts and you will see what it was in a time of mercy. This ministry, being a judgment ministry, is going by the Outpouring of the Holy Spirit and there will be curses and blessings. Brother Branham illustrated how these manifested son of God will act.


MANIFESTED SONS - SPEAK THE WORD MINISTRY

Quote W.M.B.: Go right back to Genesis, to the original; what is it? Now, the world and nature is groaning, crying; everything's a moving what? For the manifestation of the sons of God, when true sons, born sons, filled sons speak and their word is backed. I believe we're on the border of it right now. Yes, sir. Say to this mountain, let it be so. "Brother, I desire so-and-so, a certain thing done. I'm a believer in Jesus Christ."
"I give it to you in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ." Amen. There's a manifestation…Oh, waiting, groaning, all nature, waiting for the manifestations of the sons of God. God ordained it at the beginning. He gave man the domain. Adoption 60-0522E.


OUTPOURING FOR THIRD PULL MANIFESTATIONS FOR THE CHURCH

Now do you see the manifestation of the third pull, the Spoken Word ministry was not for Brother Branham? He manifested it five times to show us what the Church is going to have in the end time. These manifested sons of God here in the end time will manifest the third pull They will have the seven thunders. They will be the sons of thunder. They will all have this great Power. Men and women will be gifted and they will manifest this Third Pull Power.
This is the line up: when that Outpouring comes, it brings a revival. When it brings that revival, the manifested sons of God start manifesting the Third Pull Power, start manifesting Speak the Word Power that has never been seen nor manifested upon the earth in such a great measure. Brother Branham said,


WE HAVEN'T SEEN POWER YET - FULLNESS OF POWER OF HOLY GHOST TO COME INTO THE CHURCH

Quote W.M.B.: E-38 There'll be a power put into the Church, and now is coming in, that the Holy Spirit will so anoint the people, till they'll speak the Word and It'll create Itself right there. We haven't seen powers like's coming into the Church now…"Say unto this mountain be moved… …the placing of the Church in position, where the fulness of the power of the Holy Ghost comes into the Church. (Hear Ye Him 60-0313.


THIRD PULL TO BE MANIFESTED IN THE FULNESS OF ITS POWER

Quote: …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. Look Away to Jesus 63-1229.

We are in line up for that. We have been preparing. Your soul, your heart, your spirit must come under a certain Power. You must be trained to use such dynamic Power. It's by the Spoken Word!
Medical science can do nothing for certain sick people that are laying there. Around the world right now sicknesses by the billions-it is laying the stage for this ministry to come to pass. Yes, nothing takes God by chance.
So now we are happy to see these sons of God manifested, but don't look over there, Friend. You are a son of God here, today. It is you I am talking about. Those that believe this Promise of God in different countries, different places, you are sons of God today but you are not manifested sons of God. Something has to come upon you to manifest you. What is going to manifest you is the Power of God. It is going to manifest the Word, manifest the promises of God, manifest the Bible. That is how you become a manifested son of God.
There are liars right around the world saying that they are manifested sons of God today and all that they are manifesting is adultery and fornication, televisions and sports, but they "are manifested sons of God." They lie.
Send me a rain, if you can. Send me a rain if you are a manifested son of God. The place is very hot; send me a rain. Yes, you can't do anything, but a true manifested son of God has power like Elijah. Elijah shut up the heaven for three and a half years then he turned around one day and said, "I command the rain to come!" He said, "There won't be dew or rain until I call for it!"
When the prophet gave that illustration, no doubt he had Elijah in mind.


I'LL SEND YOU A RAIN IN THE NAME OF THE LORD

Quote W.M.B.: 80 Oh, brother, my crops are burning up out yonder. I haven't had any rain." "I'll send you a rain in the Name of the Lord God...?... bless your crop." Oh, waiting, groaning, all nature, waiting for the manifestations of the sons of God. Adoption 60-0522E

We want to see those days. We want to see that hour. We are contending for that; and the only way that we will have that is by another Outpouring of the Holy Spirit. The only way that we would have this Outpouring of the Holy Spirit as individuals is to condition our hearts. Upper Room Hearts Condition-we must condition our hearts. We must put our house in order, must put our church in order; we must put our lives in order, and be ready for that Outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
When that comes, that is the fullness of the Godhead bodily that will be dwelling in us. I am talking about the Church, collectively. No individual man will have the fullness of the Godhead bodily dwelling in him.


IN CHRIST WAS THE FULNESS OF GOD - WE HAVE IT BY MEASURE

Quote W.M.B.: …all God was, He poured into Christ; and all Christ was, He poured into the Church. He That Is In You 63-1110E.

Quote: E-58 Now, God gave Christ the Spirit without measure. Is that right? The Fullness of God was in Christ. He was God Emmanuel… in Christ was the Fullness of God. We have it by measure. He had it without measure, the Bible says. See? Without measure, no way, He's just unlimited. India Trip Report 57-0126B.


ORDER OF RAPTURE-WAVES OF GLORY

The Bride, collectively, will have the fullness of the Godhead bodily dwelling in her and then when that time comes and that ministry is about closing, here the Lord sends seven waves of glory. Those seven waves of glory will sweep over the dead-one wave of glory to each church age. A wave of glory comes and brings up the Laodicean Church Age-more Power is building up here on the earth. Then the Philadelphian Church Age-it's going backward, "The last shall be first and the first shall be last". So that is the order of the resurrection. It keeps going back…First Church Age, and then comes up Paul and the different brethren there. When they come up, there is so much Power upon the face of the earth; and those seven waves of glory will strike over the living saints and change their bodies into immortality.
About that time, we are getting ready to go in the rapture. How many days, how many weeks, I do not know, but then it is about time that sweep will come over us. It may not be many days, but it follows that order: revival, resurrection, changed body, and then we are caught up to meet Him in the air. When the last elect is brought in, then the Lord leaves the mercy seat and appears in the heaven in His physical body-physical return, with the nail prints in His hands-and He appears in the heavens; and the Church of God, the ransomed body-from the time of the cross right up to our time-is caught up together.
The Bible said: I Thessalonians 4:17: "Caught up together" to meet Him in the air, "…and so shall we ever be with the Lord".
Is not that a wonderful Promise? Let us live for it, Brethren. May the Lord add a blessing to His Word.
