1Last night we looked at the End Time Testing Time, and we saw that the Squeeze will come at a time when the Council of Churches begins to tighten up and that will bring on a real test for every believer to either stand or fall. We looked at the end-time in general, and saw the principle of God in that he always tests his own. The trial of our Faith or Revelation. And we saw no matter how many times we are tested and fail that since we are ordained to pass the test we shall. So if God has to get us sick and tired of the tests in order to get us to finally die to self, then that is exactly what he will do.
3It will be during this time that God turns to Israel to work with her one last time, and during this time He will send 2 witnesses with the spirit of Moses and Elijah to Israel. They will be rejected during this time and killed. The whole world will watch this event on television. Finally the tribulation will end in the war in the Middle east which is called Armageddon which will be the destruction by man's fire.
4Questions and answers COD 64-0823E P:112 322. Brother Branham, I would like to know about the millennium. Is it after the marriage supper, or is it on earth, all about it. I don't understand about it. Well, brother or sister, it's hard for me to understand it, myself. But only thing I can say is this: that the marriage supper comes before the millennium. Now, see, somebody, I know somewhere in here has got a question on that, that said, "Brother Branham, you're wrong on the seventy weeks of Daniel. There will still be seventy weeks." No, the Messiah was to come and prophesy, and in the midst of the seventy weeks, seventy of weeks, which is seven years, He was to--He was to be cut off from among the living and made a sacrifice. How many remembers that? All right. How many years then did Jesus preach, the Messiah? Three and a half. Then there's still 3 1/2 determined. And in Revelations the 11th , these two prophets, they prophesy one thousand two hundred and three score days. Three and one half years still promised to Israel when the Gentile Bride is gone. How many understands that now? See? All right, all right.
6Questions and Answers 64-0830.2E 392 The church age ending and has blacked out, the Bride is called, we have already entered into the tribulation period? No, no, no, you're... I wished that I could just have more time on that. See, see? 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 3 1/2 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.
8The events of the tribulation are interesting because God is no longer dealing with the gentiles at that time. He has now turned to deal once more with the Jews, and it is interesting when God is dealing with the Jews that he selects out 144,000 Jews to be His witnesses tot he earth during that time. And the same time that God is dealing with a righteous Jew the 144,000 He will also at the same time be bringing an end the reprobate Wall Street Jewish reign. Because they will enter into a pact with Rome, and then in the midst of the Week, Rome will turn on them and they will be through.
9During the tribulation the world will be stricken by the judgments of Deuteronomy 28 for turning down God's Voice to this hour, and they will receive all the curses and judgments which as we have already shown are both economic judgments, and also judgments of plagues and death.
11So the Events and characters of the Tribulation period which we know is a space of time, will be the 144,000 Jews which God is dealing with and which will be saved, and the reprobate Jews who will be cursed.
12Victory day 63-0421 P:50 It'll finally wind up into the great battle of Armageddon. That'll be the last of it. When she comes to the battle of Armageddon, that'll settle the whole thing. Just before the great millennium, Armageddon is to clean off the earth. She re-purifies herself with this atomic blowing, and the volcanic ash, and thing sinks this soaked blood of men upon the earth, and sin, and crime. She sinks beneath the earth. The volcanic breaks out again, and renews, and cleans the earth for the great millennium. He cleans His church during that time for a people to live here. Amen. I say, I like that. Yes, sir. There's coming a time when it'll be great...
13Now, for the next few minutes I would like to read some scriptures and quotes concerning the tribulation period. In Matthew 22 we see a parable Jesus tells us about those who are called to the wedding supper.
14Matthew 22:11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: 12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. 13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 14 For many are called, but few are chosen.
15Now, I want you to notice about this wedding garment she is given to wear because over in the book of revelations, we are told that wedding garment is the righteousness of the saints and these people don't have it on, therefore they are not rightly wise, and since they did not come via the door, which is the word, then they came in some other way.
16Revelations 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. 8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. 9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
17I believe this garment if it is her righteousness, then it has to do with being the right kind of sons, and remember according to the law of adoption, only the right kind of son will receive the garment of adoption, that brother Branham talks about at the time of adoption, which Paul said is, "to whit is the redemption of the body". Just a thought.
18Now, from his sermon, Questions and answers COD 64-0823E P:117 brother Branham said, "The church, the lukewarm, anything outside of the elected Bride will go through the tribulation period. They will not raise in the first resurrection: "The rest of the dead lived not for a thousand years," just the foreordained, predestinated, elected Bride, God's own elections. "Who is it, Brother Branham?" I don't know? I can't tell you who it is, but I know it's going to be there, 'cause the Lord said they would. See? (1)They are the ones that'll go up from the tribulation, but the rest of them will go through the tribulation, go down, and everything will be killed before the millennium. (2) Then the righteous shall come out in the millennium and live a thousand years. (3) And after the thousand years, then the great white throne judgment comes, (4) and then the dead, both right and wrong is raised. (5) And the books are opened, and the Book of Life was open; and the saints, the Wife and the Husband, set and judge the world. And there it comes to pass the saying: "And He'll judge all nations with a rod of iron." All nations shall stand before Him there, and He'll judge them with the rod of iron. He'll separate the sheep from the goats and say to the goats, "Depart," and the sheeps, "Come, ye blessed of My Father."
19We see another Scripture that deals with the tribulation in Luke 13:23 Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, 24 Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. 25 When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: 26 Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. 27 But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. 28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out. 29 And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God. 30 And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.
20And from his sermon, Sixfold purpose Gabriel visit Daniel 61-0730E P:80 brother Branham said, "Now, after this the Bride appears. After the seventy weeks, the Bride appears in Revelations the 19th , the 1st and the 16th verse. She arrives with her Bridegroom, the mighty King. Oh, my. I don't know whether we're going to get it all or not. Just got it so...Let's just read part of this anyhow. Here's where the Bride will come, after this. See? After the millennium sets in, then Christ comes back with the Bride. Right. One to sixteen in the 19th ...And after these things... (After this tribulation, after the Woes, after the Seals, after the Plagues, after the casting out of Satan, after the setting up of the Millennium. Watch.)... after these things I heard a... voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory,... honour,... power, unto the Lord our God: For true and righteous are thy judgments: for he had judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and has avenged the blood of his servants at her hand. And again he--they--and again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up for ever and ever... (That's the old prostitute church.)... her smoke rose up...And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that set upon the throne, saying, Amen; Hallelujah.And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great. And I heard as it was the voice of a great multitude,... (Listen. Here you are, church. After She went up in the 3rd , here She comes. See?)... And I... (The 6th verse.)... And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a mighty thundering, saying, Hallelujah: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. (Hallelujah. Watch. The marriage of the Lamb comes now. Here She comes.) Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife has made herself ready. (Here She comes, both Bride and Bridegroom.) And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is... righteousness of saints. And he said unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the wedding supper of the Lamb. And he said unto me. These are... true sayings of God. And I fell down at the feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou doeth it not: I am of thy fellowservant,... thy brethren and have the--thy brethren and have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Christ--of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.And I saw heaven opened, and... a white horse;... (Oh, my.)... and he that set thereon... was called Faithful and True, and... righteousness does he judge and make war.And his eyes was as flames of fire, and... his head was many crowns;... (He was crowned what? King of kings.)... and he had a name written, that no man knowed, but... himself.And he was clothed with white vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God... ("In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was God; and the Word was made flesh and dwelled among us." Who was It? Jesus.)... and His Name is called The Word of God.And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. (Glory. Here He comes.) And out of his mouth will go a sharp sword, that--and that... it... should smite the nations: and... shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of Almighty God.And he had on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KING, AND LORD OF LORDS."
21Another Scripture that deals with the time of the tribulation, showing how people will get there, is Matthew 25:27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury. 28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents. 29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. 30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
22And brother Branham said in his sermon, QA on the seals 63-0324M P:94 16. "What happened to the born again believers who are in the various denominations but not in the Bride of Christ? What happens to them? Well, I think we explained that awhile ago. See? They go into the tribulation. They are martyred in the tribulation, come up in the last after the millennium for their judgment (See?), because the Bible said that the rest of the living... the rest of the dead lived not until the thousand years was expired. Then there was a resurrection, and then come forth the both just and unjust and was judged by Christ and the Bride. He came to the earth with ten thousands times ten thousands of His saints (Is that right?), His Bride. Judgment was set, the books was open... Books was open, and another Book was opened, which is the Book of Life. He separated from there the goats from the sheep. Is that right? That had nothing to do with the Bride. She was standing right there in judgment with her, the Queen and King together."
23We see another parable in Scripture that Jesus deals with the tribulation in Matthew 24:44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. 45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? 46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. 47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. 48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; 49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; 50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, 51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
24And again Jesus deals with the tribulation in Matthew 13:40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. 41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; 42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
25And again in Matthew 13:47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind: 48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away. 49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, 50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
26Then in his sermon, Q and A on Genesis 53-0729 brother Branham speaks to us about the two witnesses that will go to the Jews during the tribulations period. "Then when the Church is taken up, Moses and Elijah appears, in Revelation 11, and preaches Jesus Christ to them. And the Holy Spirit's took from the Gentiles, and the Rapture comes for the Church to be taken up. And the Jews that's left here will be preached for three and a half years, because he said, "There's seventy of weeks still determined on Thy people, and Messiah shall be cut off in between them." When He's taking away, the Gentiles will be given a place, and then they got three more years and a half to be preached to, of Jesus Christ."
28Revelations 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. 8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. 9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
29Rapture the 65-1204 P:93 Therefore, the Message calls the Bride together. See? The shout and the trumpet, the same morning with a loud voice He screamed out with that shout, and voice and woke Lazarus. With a loud voice He cried, "Lazarus, come forth." See? And the voice wakes up the sleeping Bride, the sleeping dead. And the trumpet, with the sound of the trumpet, and when it does, it calls... Always a trumpet called Israel to the Feast of the Trumpets (See?), which was the Pentecostal feast, the great feast in the sky and the Feast of the Trumpets... And now, a trumpet denounced a calling together, calling to the feast. And now that is the Lamb's supper in the sky (Now, watch.,)--the assembling together in the Bride, the Feast of the Trumpets, the Wedding Supper. We have seen it in types. Now, watch just a moment before we close.
30Matthew 22:1 And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said, 2 The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son, 3 And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come. 4 Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage. 5 But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise: 6 And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them. 7 But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city. 8 Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy. 9 Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage. 10 So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests. 11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: 12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. 13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 14 For many are called, but few are chosen.
31Things that are to be 65-1205 P:79 In Matthew I've got a Scripture here (I'm watching Scriptures), Matthew 22:1-14. I haven't got time to read it, because it's getting too late. I've spoke too long to you. But remember, the King sent forth and made a supper. He killed all of His oxen and fixed the fatlings, and everything, and had a great supper prepared. And He sent out and He bid many to come. One said, "Well, you know, after all, I belong to this, and I got this. And I got to go to my farm," and one did many things. And He sent again, and they evilly mistreated them. And finally... That was the Jewish generation Jesus was talking to; they had something else to do. Then finally, He sent him and said, "Go, just compel them. Go into the streets, and highways, and everywhere, and compel them to come in." And after that, determined that His wedding supper was going to be set. There was going to be guests there. And then He found a man in there without the wedding garment on. He wanted to hold to the old coat. And look what he said: "Friend, after I have invited you to My wedding supper, and I invited you and give you an invitation to come..." 80 And if you ever was in the Orient, which I preached in there many times, that wedding supper's still carried on just the way it was. The bridegroom, he has so many guests that he's going to have. Probably, Brother Kopp, probably you've watched it there in India. See? They just have so many guests that he's going to ask. Say he's going to ask thirty guests. Now, the bridegroom has to furnish the robes. He has to furnish them. Therefore, there's a man stands at the door, and you come up with your invitation; he examines your invitation and puts you on a garment, a robe, that... Some of them are rich; and some are poor; and some of them are different; but they all look alike when they get these robes on. They all look alike. And you have to all be alike. You ain't going be saying, "I'm the Methodist over here," "I'm the Presbyterian over here." Oh, no. You ain't going in the first place. See? You've got to come by the Door. Jesus said, "I am the Door to the sheepfold." "I'm Pentecostal." "I'm this, I'm that." That don't mean one thing. You come by that Door. And if you come by that Door, you get the robe.
32Who is this Melchisedec 65-0221E P:46 Jacob wrestled all night and wouldn't turn Him loose until He blessed him. That's right. Battle for life. And after the battle is over, then God gives you of Himself. That is His true Communion. The little bread and wafer just represents it. You shouldn't take it, 'less you've wrestled it out and become part of God. Remember, at this time the Communion had never been instituted, not until, before the death of Jesus Christ, hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of years later. But Melchisedec after His child Abraham had won the victory, Melchisedec met him and gave him wine and bread, showing that after this earthly battle is over, we will meet Him in the heavens and take the Communion again; it'll be the wedding supper. "I will not drink no more of the vine or eat the fruit, until I eat it and drink it with you anew in My Father's Kingdom." That right?
33Doors in door 65-0206 P:45 But, see, it's like the church has to pass through the hall of critics. We go through. You're going to be called "holy-roller," you're going to be called everything. But if you could only hold your position in Christ, then someday He'll take us to the hall of fame. But first we've got to stand criticism. There's where the littleness of us stands; there's where it shows. He that cannot stand chastisement is a illegitimate child and not a child of God. No matter how much he's joined church, and whatever he's done, he's still, if he cannot stand chastisement, he's a illegitimate, and he's not a real child of God. But a real, genuine child of God don't care what the world says; everything else is secondary. He's got his mind on Christ, and that settles it. Yes. Whatever Christ says do, he'll do it. Wherever the Lamb goes, they're with Him, wherever. And then you see His appearing, His Presence, and what He does. He's always with His people, His Bride. He's courting her. Someday there's going to be a wedding supper.
34Questions and answers COD 64-0830M P:136 363. The Word that's in you, the body will materialize around that Word, and the same thing did by Sarah. When that old body that she had, that first body, it had to be changed in order to produce a son. You get it? That body could not do it. This body cannot do it, so it'll have to be changed the same way to receive the Son. How will it take place and when is--where is the--where is it the Bride goes? It goes to glory, heaven for the Wedding Supper, just in type like Isaac and Rebekah, when Rebekah went to meet Isaac. Remember Eliezer, representing now the message that went forth from Abraham, Eliezer went forth to find a bride for--for Isaac. He found the beautiful Rebekah in the cool of the evening, a little dark-skinned girl coming out with a water pot on. And Eliezer prayed, said, "Lord God, give me good journey now and success for my master, Abraham."And he said, "Go, don't take him amongst the Philistines--don't take her." Get over here amongst his people, showing that the Bride of Christ and Christ is blood relation, 'cause Rebekah and--and Isaac were cousins.
35Questions and answers COD 64-0823E P:89 Now, this is a striking thing. Please don't take it as a doctrine, but do you understand what the Scriptures said would take place when that did? Time was over. For look, there was ten virgins went out to meet the Bridegroom, and half of them had oil in their lamp, half of them didn't. That's the part of the body that's dead and the part that's alive. The five's wise, when they--the cry come, "Behold the Bridegroom..." they all woke and trimmed their lamps to go into the wedding supper. But when the foolish virgin said, "Give us some of your oil, our lamps is gone out. (See?) Give us of your oil," they said, "Not so, we just got enough for ourself. Go buy it." And while they went to buy it, the Bridegroom came.
36Proving His Word 64-0816 P:118 Now, we say He's raised from the dead. I didn't say it; the Word here said it. They said, "He raised from the dead." He says He's the same yesterday, today, and forever. You believe that? He promised these things to happen in the last day, that the same Son of man will be made manifest. Now, remember, that was not Jesus talking to Abraham there, that could discern the thoughts in Sarah's mind behind him. That was not Jesus; He had not yet been born. But it was a Man in human flesh, that Abraham called, "Elohim, the great Almighty," showing... And Jesus said, "As it was in the days of Sodom," now watch close, "in the days of Sodom, so will it be at the coming of the Son of man, when the Son of man is being revealed." Not no more as a church (See?), not no more; the Bride's called. See? "In that day the Son of man will be revealed." What? To join the Church to the Head, unite, the marriage of the Bride. The Bridegroom call will come right through this, when the Son of man will come down and come in human flesh to unite the two together. The Church has to be the Word; He is the Word, and the two unites together, and to do that it'll take the manifestation of the revealing of the Son of man. Not a clergyman. I don't know, Do you see what I mean? See, it's Son of man, Jesus Christ, will come down in human flesh among us, and will make His Word so real that it'll unite the Church and Him as one, the Bride, and then she'll go Home to the wedding supper. Amen. She's already united (See?); we go to the wedding supper, not to the marriage. "Fill your self, of all the flesh of mighty men, 'cause the marriage of the Lamb has come." But the rapture is going to the wedding supper. When the Word here unites with the person, and they two become one, and then what does it do then? It manifests the Son of man again, not the church theologians, the Son of man. The Word and the Church becomes one. Whatever the Son of man done, He was the Word, the Church does the same thing.
37Future home 64-0802 P:239 Just a little while and we'll be summoned; then the rapture will come. Just a little bitty group like Enoch will be taken up. Then the remnant of the woman's seed that keep the commandments of God (Jews), have the testimony of Jesus Christ (Gentiles), will be hunted down like dogs and shall give their life for their testimony. Then one great morning, the break of the millennium for the honeymoon will start. And then the rest of the dead lived not till the end of the thousand years. Then at the end of the thousand years there was a judgment, showing that Ham was in the ark. And Ham is still there in the remnant. Ones that heard it and rejected it will have to be judged. Now, grant it, Lord, that we'll not be considered among them, but will be in the call to the wedding supper, for we do recognize Jesus among us today. We're going in with Him, out of the world into Him. Let us walk forth in that City, come out with Him.
38Unveiling of God 64-0614M P:182 So will it be sometime when the trumpet of the Lord shall be sounded out, time shall be no more. Those who have been looked at and made fun of, that stood there before the open veil and seen the Word of God manifested... Others will scream for It, but as You said, "It'll be too late then." They went into the wedding supper, and they were left out where there's weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth. Help every person to believe this morning, Father. Break through every veil of selfishness, every veil of unbelief, and see the Mighty Conqueror unveiled before the believers. For, "Lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the world. A little while and the world won't see Me no more, yet ye shall see Me." Show Yourself among us, Lord, as You have been doing. Ever remain that way until we're visibly before You, when the--the en morphe has been changed and You become again Son of man and Son of David. Grant it, Lord, through Jesus Christ's Name.
39QA on the Holy Ghost COD 59-1219 P:61 Now, here's one that's really a sticker. Question... I think it's the same person, 'cause it looks like the same handwrite: 95. If a person must have the Holy Ghost to be converted and to go in the rapture, what will be the state of children that have died before the years of accountability? And when will they rise? Now, my brother, sister, I cannot tell you that. There's no Scripture on it in the Bible as I can find anywhere. But I can express my thoughts. Now, this'll strengthen you that believes in grace of God. You see, the person wants to know (which is a very good question. See?)--the person wants to know what will happen to a baby, that if he has to have the Holy Ghost in order to go in the rapture... As I have said, that's right. That's according to the Bible. That's the teaching of the Scripture. Not to go to heaven... Because the Holy Ghost filled people is the first resurrection the Elect. And the remnant of those... The rest of the dead live not for a thousand years. After the millennium, then the second resurrection, the great white throne judgment. See? That's exactly Bible order. But this person wants to know what about these babies. In other words, did they have the Holy Ghost before they were born? Did they receive It? Now, that I cannot tell you.
