1This evening we will pick up at paragraph 31 of Rising of the Sun (Son), where brother Branham says, Now, the very essence of the Message that was sent that, "He is risen from the dead," we, His beneficiaries, we, who share the resurrection with Him, draw benefits from this by proving to the world that He is alive. We cannot do it by word only; we cannot do it by some tradition of man; we only reflect exactly what we're pointing to.
2And that has been the problem with Christianity. There are too many people who think they are Christians because they go to a church who says they believe in Jesus Christ. But saying you believe does not make you a Christian. Being a Christian means you are Christ-Like.
3Then brother Branham says, "I'm afraid today that too many of us are not getting people to Christ. We're getting them to a church, to a theory, (or I would like to add, they are getting people to a theology, to a certain doctrine) but we must get them to Christ. He is the only One, and the only One that has Life. "He that has the Son, has Life."
5He is quoting 1 John 5:12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. Now, the word hath as we should understand by now was translated from the Greek word "echo" which means the same as the English word echo since the English word was borrowed from the Greek word.
So let's read this again, "He that hath" (he that echoes) "the Son hath" (echoes) "life; and he that hath not" (that means he that echoes not) "the Son of God hath not life" ( echoes not life). So if you are incapable of echoing the son you are also incapable of living the life the son of God lives.
Then if you cannot echo the son you cannot echo Life itself, and God is Life. For you see when Jesus came he said, “It is written in the volume of the Book, I have come to do thy will o God”, and Jesus also said, in St. John 5:19 and 30, “The son can of himself do nothing, but whatsoever the Son seeth the Father do, that the son doeth likewise.” And he also said, “My doctrine is not mine but the Father s that sent me.” And he said, "the things I teach, the father commanded me what to say, and that is what I teach.”
And so we see that the Son of God reflected or echoed perfectly the Father in every thing he did or said. And thus he that can echo the son will echo Life for God is Life. And he that will remain in the Doctrine of Christ will echo both the Father and the Son. For if Jesus echoed the Father and we echo Jesus then we also will echo the Father.
6For an echo is not a one-time event, but rather something that happens over and over again. Thus Jesus the first-fruit was the first-repeat of the Father's echo to us, and as we catch the vision, and are conformed to the image of the first born Son, which is Romans 8:29, then we also will do nothing unless the father show us first, and what we teach are the commandments from the Father, given to us through the first echo of His first born Son, and thus as we echo them to others, they are repeated again and again and again, showing the word is Living and abiding in us.
The problem is that many people think in repeating the Word it will bring life and that is a misnomer. An echo and a repeat are two different words and they mean two different things. To repeat does not take the Holy Spirit in you. To echo does. Because when you echo you have the same inflection and the same spirit reflecting through you what was spoken by the same Spirit before you.
7That is why we have so many people who go through the motions thinking they are doing God a service because they show up to church. Let me tell you something, the only service you can do for God and for yourself is to die to yourself and let Christ live your life for you. Your trying to do it yourself will never get the job done.
8Paul said unless you have the Spirit of God in you, you cannot even understand the things of God, in fact he said cannot understand the things of God except the Spirit of God be in you. That is 1 Corinthians 2. There will be many people who will miss the rapture because they have fooled themselves into thinking they have the Holy Ghost when all they have is religion.
10Romans 8:11 But if (and that is a very big question right there) 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.
Most people make the mistake of assuming they have the Holy Ghost because they go to church, believe in Jesus Christ as their Saviour, and got baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. But Paul is saying IF the same Spirit that raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you it will make alive your mortal Body to what God is doing right now. You won't be fixated on what God did 50 to 60 years ago, but what is God doing to me and through me right now. Because if you are not born again you will not make the rapture, but not only that, you will never even begin to understand the things of God. It's impossible for you to even know them.
11From his sermon, Jehovah Jireh 58-0127 E-36 Brother BRanham, God's vindicated prophet said, "And the same Holy Spirit that was in Jesus Christ, will have to be operating in His church to make them coincide together at the rapture, or it won't go up at that time. The Spirit that was in Jesus, will have to be in His church, or the two pieces won't dovetail together, the life of the church and the life of Christ cannot dovetail together."
14Now, that is John 14:12. And if you are content that one man did it but you don't have to have that Life in your own life, I can make a comfortable assertion that you will not go in the rapture anyway.
15Because brother Branham's words are very specific. He said, the same Holy Spirit that was in Jesus Christ, will have to be operating in His church to make them coincide together at the rapture, or it won't go up at that time.
16Notice, he is saying "if the Holy Spirit is not doing in the church what it did in Jesus coinciding with the very same life at the time of the rapture, then the church will not go in the rapture at that time".
17So he is talking about your life and the Life of Christ coinciding at that time. That means he is not talking about what God did 50-60 years ago. That is not the time of the Rapture or physical catching away, unless you are going to try to do some mental gymnastics and intellectualize away the literal catching away, and say the rapture is the Shout and since you believe the Shout you are in the rapture. Well, good luck with that.
18Therefore, if you want to play that game, I will just ask you who are thinking like that, "where were you at that time?" "were you even in the Message back 50-60 years ago?" were you born of the Spirit back then, 50-60 years ago? I venture to say most of you were not even born at that time, much less born again. But you are alive at this time, and we have but one thing left and that is the rapture of the church. So it is very apparent if language means anything anymore, that he was talking about a future time when the literal catching away would take place, and not about the process of shout voice and trump. And we are looking forward to that time no matter how soon it will be.
19Paul continues, 12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to self, to live after self. 13 For if ye live after self, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. 14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. 15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
20Then the Apostle Paul brings it all down to this one statement. He says in verse 16 The Spirit itself (and there is only one THE Spirit and that is God's own Spirit) So God's Own Spirit beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
21And we must know how that God's own Spirit will bear witness with our Spirit, and brother Branham said it is when your life divvies up to God's Own Word. His Word tells you what to do and you do it, and God bears witness by confirming what you did was indeed His Word and His will.
22And that is when your Spirit is echoing His Spirit and your words are echoing His Words, and your Life is echoing His Life. Just like your heart pumping shows you are alive, so to your echoing the Word of God again and again shows you've been made alive in Christ.
23And notice as in the natural the heart pumping the blood (which the life is in the blood), and thus the pumping of the heart is the evidence that you are alive in the natural, so too in the spiritual, whereas the heart represents our understanding, then thus as the understanding echoes the Word of God again and again, it is an evident token that you have been made alive in Christ, and the life that was in the Father and given to His Son is hath quickened you and you are alive showing that he and His Life is the same yesterday, today and forever..
From his sermon, Earnestly contending for the faith 55-0123E P:28 brother Branham said, " There's quite a difference in me having an intellectual faith than a Divine faith. There's where you, my Baptist friends, fail to go on. You get the intellectual faith by that, but it must be a Divine revelation of Jesus Christ to you that just came out of the heart. The intellectual faith is not enough. That's all right, but it only brings you to the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is a personal experience of the birth, the new birth, regeneration, making a new creature in Christ.
24Christ is the mystery 63-0728 P:147 Notice, God holds this key alone. No theologian can tell you. It's not known; it's hid from them. They know nothing about it. So the schools... "Well," you say, "I got a Ph. LL.D." You only make... To me and I believe unto God and to any real, true believer, that means you're just that much farther away; you just backed off. God is not known by education; He's not known by how to explain it. God is known by simplicity and of revelation of Jesus Christ in the most illiterate person. See? Not your theology; it's a revelation of Jesus Christ. "Upon this rock, I'll build My Church." No other rock's accepted; no other thing's accepted; no other Roman rock; no other Protestant rock; no other school; no other nothing; but on exactly the revelation of Jesus Christ in a new birth. He is born in there and injects His own Life, and your life is gone, and the Life of Christ is projecting Itself through you with the preeminences to the people that they see the very Life, and works, and signs and wonders that He did is doing the same thing through you. Outside of that, the rest of it's not even called to at all.
25Then it is not you doing it at all but Christ is doing it, because he says you have died to yourself, he says your life is gone. And Christ's Spirit is bearing witness with your spirit, and he is the one doing. "ask what you will and I will do it" he said. That is Him, His Spirit bearing witness with your spirit. "And you are dead and your life is hid with Christ in God." Paul goes on to say in Colossians 3 "For when Christ who is our Life shall appear then shall you appear with him in the same Glory." Same Life doing the same things. His Spirit bearing witness with your spirit.
26Again we see from Christ is the mystery 63-0728 P:120 Brother Branham said "Look, Christ in you makes Him the center of Life of the revelation. See? Christ's Life in you makes Him the center of the revelation. Christ in the Bible, makes the Bible a complete revelation of Christ. Christ in you makes you the complete revelation of the whole thing.
28"See, what God's trying to do? What is the new birth then? You say, "Well, Brother Branham, what is the new birth?" It is the revelation of Jesus Christ personally to you. Amen. See? Not you joined a church, you shook a hand; you done something different; you said a creed; you promised to live by a code of rules; but Christ, the Bible... He is the Word that was revealed to you. And no matter what anybody says, what takes place, it's Christ. Pastor, priest, whatever it might be... It's Christ in you. That is the revelation that the Church was built upon.
29And again from pp. 124 he said, "The new birth is Christ, is a revelation. God has revealed to you this great mystery, and that's the new birth. Now, what are you going to do when you get all that group together, where the revelation is perfectly in harmony, and God expressing it through His Word by the same actions, the same things that He did, making the Word manifest? Oh, if the Church only knew its position. It will one day. Then, the rapture will go when it knows what it is.
31That is why Paul could say in Galatians Chapter 2 and Verse 20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
32In other words, Paul is saying, Since I was crucified with Christ, I am living by His Faith, His Revelation, and thus as a result the Life by which He lived, I too am living. And thus we wee the Life which was in the Father being passed along to His Son and then on to Sons.
And so we see that whosoever is of such a nature as to be able to echo the Son of God will also echo the Father who is Life.
Let’s look at this word “hath” again in reference to the effect it has upon those who possess the ability to echo verses those who can not.
Matthew 13:12 For whosoever hath, (whosoever echoes, or is of such a nature as to be able to echo) to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: (and why is that? Because the very nature of an echo is to have more and more and more of the same)but whosoever hath not, (whosoever is not of such a nature as to be able to echo) from him shall be taken away even that he hath (is able to repeat).
Now, the term "Hath Life" is used 23 times in the new testament, but in my examining each usage of the tern “hath Life” I found that the word hath was not always translated from the Greek Word echo. And to my amazement, the only times it was not taken from the word echo is when it referred to something God did. And why is that? Because God does not echo? His Spoken Word is the Original, it is not an echo. But each time that Word reflects from one to the next, it is echoing. Therefore, the source itself is not an echo but the echo comes forth reflecting itself as an echo by reverberating off vessels made to echo. The Life itself is not an echo, but the Life itself echoes from one to the other.
Notice in 1 John 3:15 Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him. That word hath is echo. So we see that no murderer can echo life.
But as we examine 1 John 5:11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. But here we do not see the word echo used. The Word hath there is an interpolation and is not in the original Greek. Simply put, Not God hath given, but God gave to us eternal Life.
We have already seen the usage in this verse. 1 John 5:12 He that hath(echoes) the Son hath (echoes) life; and he that hath (echoes) not the Son of God hath (echoes) not life.
Acts 11:18 When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life. Now, the Greek word that the word hath was translated from was not echo but didomi which means to give, thus then God gave to the Gentiles, but no where here does it say that God echoes.
John 15:13 Greater love hath (echoes)no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath (echoes) everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath (echoes) everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
John 5:26 For as the Father hath (echoes) life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;
John 6:47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath (echoes) everlasting life.
John 6:54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath (echoes) eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
Revelation 2:7 He that hath an ear, (echoes, he that is of such a nature as to be able to hear and thus echo) let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
John 20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have (echo) life through his name.
John 5:25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.
33Now, in continuing with the Rising of the Son brother Branham says in paragraph 31 "And if the life of a man that's dead be projected in you, you will live the same life he lived. If the blood of a man was a certain type, and you took the blood from one man and changed the blood of the one man into another, he'd absolutely be that typed blood. And if your spirit that's in you is reckoned dead, and you are anointed with the Life that was in Christ is upon you... Romans 8:11 says, "If the Spirit that raised Christ from the dead dwells in you, It'll also quickens your mortal bodies," that same Life, them same powers, them same beneficiaries that He had here on earth from God. He redeemed you, a seed that was foreknown by God, whose names was put on the Lamb's Book of Life before the foundation of the world. And that Gospel Light of the resurrection, the confirmation of the Word... How did we know He was the Christ? Because He proved what He talked about. How will I know the Message of the hour? God proves what He promised and He talks about it
35Now, remember we spent an entire service last Sunday showing you that to be identified makes you identical. and he is saying that By God using you to echo or reflect His own Word though you, proving it is not you but Him that is doing those things, and speaking those Words, then that proving by manifesting is the identification of His resurrection in you.
37Brother Branham continues in Rising of the Son, "He proves what He's talked about. What He promised to do in Christ, He proved it on the resurrection. What He promised to do in the days of Moses, He proved it. What He promised in the days of Enoch, He proved it. In all the days of the apostles, He proved it. And now in this day, He proves what He said, because they are a part of that seed that was represented on the Book of Life that He came to redeem back to God again. Oh, what a Message.
40Like we read a few weeks ago where brother Branham was speaking of His new ministry, and he said it wasn't based on visions like before, but the Holy Spirit said, I am waiting to see what you will do. and when you do without visions what the holy Spirit would do, then it is not longer you doing but the Holy Spirit in you that is doing. That is when you have become one with the Father as Jesus was one with the Father.
41New ministry 59-1115 P:36 I stood there amazed. It left me, I had nothing. I thought, "Well, what could I say? There's no sick people here. There's nothing here. I'm in the woods. What could I say? What could I do?" And I thought, " Am I losing my mind? Have I studied so hard till I'm, my mental powers are cracking up?"And just then, I heard It just the same as you hear me, said, "Aren't you hunting? And you have no game?" Said, "Speak anything that you wish."Well, I thought, "Since God said, 'Prove all things,'" I said, "Lord God, if that be You, and this is a sign that You're fixing to change my ministry from those visions to something greater I've for so longed." I said, "Let it come to pass that You'll answer my prayer."And I stood there a little bit. And I thought, "What did He say? He didn't say, 'Pray,' He said, 'Say what you will.' Just say it, and your words will materialize. Say to this mountain, and it'll do just as you say."
42You see, the third pull was not dependent upon a vision, but simply speaking the Word. Haddie, what do you want? I want the salvation of my two boys. Not a vision, just speak the word. The squirrels did not come by a vision, God said where do you want them, speak it and they were there. The little fish didn't come by a vision, it was dead, but something said there will be a resurrection of a little animal, he saw that little fish and spoke to it, said, "Little fish I give you your life, and away it swam. it lived again.
43from his sermon called New ministry William Branham 59-0406 P:39 Jesus didn't have no vision of her when she touched Him, but she knowed something happened. He knowed something happened. See, the woman was pulling the power of God through the Son of God. That's the reason He got weak on that little healing. But great miracles where the Father had showed Him, He didn't get weak, because God was using His gift. The woman was using His gift; that was the difference.
45Hebrews Chapter 7 part 2 57-0922 P:83 Listen close now, as we close. And at Calvary, God came down and took the body of His own Son in which He had lived, and He ripped it apart at Calvary, His bleeding, wounded, cut... And the spear run in there and ripped Him apart, and His Blood gushed out, and He said, "Father, into Thy hands I commend My Spirit." He bowed His head; and the earth shook, and the lightning's flashed, and the thunders roared. God was writing His everlasting covenant. And He took His dead body from the grave on the first day of the week, and brought it up into heaven, and set it there as a High Priest, as a memorial, setting there perfect forever. And He sent the Spirit that He tore out of that body, right back down on the church. And that church will have to have the same Spirit that was in that body, or it won't dovetail with It in the resurrection. Those two pieces must come perfectly together; and if this church isn't perfectly, just exactly the same Spirit that was in Christ, you'll never go in the rapture.
46Questions and answers COD 54-0103E P:41 16. Unless you are born again, circumcised of the Holy Spirit... You've got to be... I don't care how good you are, what church you belong to, how good your parents was, except you as a individual has been born again by the Holy Ghost, you'll never go in the rapture. See? You can't go. That's the very delivering sign, the circumcision; and the circumcision is by the Holy Spirit. Now, God...
47Super sign 62-0708 P:40 The Baptists wants to be the biggest group. The Presbyterian wants to be the biggest group. The Pentecostal, the Oneness wants to be the biggest group. The Assemblies wants to be the biggest group. The rest of them wants to be the biggest group. Let's get that out of our head. There's only one group, and that's the Blood-washed saints of the living God, that's been predestinated since the foundation of the world. And no seed, I don't care what it is, if it's not germitized, it will not come up. I don't care how many times you join church, how many denominations you belong to; unless that life of yours is germitized by the Holy Spirit, you'll never go in the rapture; you'll never raise from that place that you go beneath the grave. That's right.
48Called out 58-0109 P:29 Though you've accepted Him as your Saviour, you'll never go in the rapture unless you're filled with the Holy Spirit. That's the Scripture. You cannot see the Kingdom of God unless you're born again.
49Identified Christ of all ages 64-0401 P:81 I want to identify. I want Jesus to identify Himself to the Word that I have just preached, to show that this is the hour, the Word that's 'lotted for this hour, that we've passed through the denominational ranks. We're fixing to go to the rapture. Just trying to get people faith to believe. See, just like in the pyramid (See?), that headstone that never did come on (See?); on your dollar bill it's got it. See? And now that ministry, with the headstone where it was way down here in the Lutheran, Wesley, and down through, it's just... Not a pyramid doctrine now (See?); I'm just showing this for an illustration. That headstone will have to be so perfect like the rest of it, till it fits right straight into it. The ministry of Christ will be in His church, just exactly like Him in Spirit, when He comes to take the church. He redeems the whole thing and it goes up in the rapture.
50Easter seal 65-0410 P:90 The resurrection. We are now in the resurrection. We are setting with Him in the resurrection, but only those who have Life, not those who do not have Life. They won't know it. They'll never know it. They'll go right on thinking they're getting the Holy Ghost, being saved, and the rapture will done be over with and gone. Said, "Elias has already come and they did that what... And you knew it not." See?"
51QA on the seals 63-0324M P:85 13. Brother Branham, if this question is not--is not fit--does not fit in the... do not answer. (That's nice. I appreciate it.) What children--what children go in the rapture, if any small ones? Thank you. They never signed no name. Now, if you don't, it's not necessary. But look, when God puts a name on the Lamb's Book of Life before the foundation of the world, there's not nothing in the world can rub it out, because it's wrote with the ink of the Blood of Christ. Be it this big, that big, or that big, or whatever it might be, it goes just the same. See?
52Abraham and his seed after him 61-0423 P:80 Well, the church has come through justification, sanctification, baptism of the Holy Ghost, gifts manifested to It. And now what? The Spirit of God moving in the church, doing the same works that Jesus did before He left as a promise. And what's the next thing? The change. The next thing happened to Abraham was a changed body. He had to have it or he'd never got the son. And the next thing happens to the church is the rapture. We'll have to be changed and caught up in the air to meet Him. We can't meet Him on earth; we've got to go in the air to meet Him. It's the coming Son, the promised Son. Amen. We've looked for Him now for hundreds of years. He will come someday. But the next thing for the church is to be changed. We've had every sign: justification, sanctification, baptism of the Holy Spirit, placing of a son, manifestation of the Spirit. Now, what? The changing of the body for the rapture.
53Abraham and his seed after him 61-0423 P:79 When Abraham's body was changed, Sarah's body was changed, like it never had been changed before... Now, when we all know that when Jesus comes we'll be caught up in a rapture. And we know our bodies will have to be changed first. And it'll... It won't have to be just go back to young men and women, but it'll have to be changed, because Abraham and Sarah's body had to be changed in a way that they could receive the promised son. That's Abraham. His body had to be changed to receive the promised son, after being justified, sanctified, filled with the Holy Spirit, called by election, manifested God of glory in the midst of him. And then his body was changed in order the receive the promised son.
54Jehovah Jireh 57-0810 P:35 Now, how God was showing Abraham. If we had time to go into it. But here's what it was. God was showing that through the seed of Abraham, would bring Christ, His own Son, through Isaac to Christ. And that on Calvary, God took His own Son, and tore Him apart. He lifted up the body and set it on His right-hand, and sent the other part, the Holy Spirit, down on the church. And when the rapture comes, it'll have to be the same Spirit that was on Christ, will have to dovetail with that promise, or it will be rejected. No wonder He said, "Except the man be borned again, he will in no wise enter the Kingdom." It has to be the same Holy Ghost that fell on the day of Pentecost, has to baptize every believer or it won't be the same spirit, and contract, that was tore at Calvary. Think of that. Oh, that ought to make the Pentecost shout anyhow. Think of it, the unconditional covenant. God said, "It has to be." And He tore apart, soul and body of His own Son. He took the body and sent the Spirit to the church. And that Spirit can come into the church today, and perform the same miracles showing, and people will laugh at It and walk away from it. How do you ever expect to make the rapture or go in to see God? There we are. Maybe you never seen that before, but that's truth.
55Paradox 64-0418B P:79 Look at those four patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph. Abraham, calling, Isaac, election, (or vice versa) Abraham, election, and Isaac, calling, Jacob, grace, Joseph, perfection. Nothing against him. That's God working His way out. Watch. Luther, Wesley, Pentecost, and the capstone, when the church and the Word becomes the same: same thing exactly, perfectly. Everything in the mathematics in the Bible perfectly sets it.
56Jesus keeps all of his appointments 64-0418E P:11 Just like this, when my shadow here of my hand... If I never seen my hand, seen the shadow, it kinda... It gets pale as it gets away. But as it gets closer and closer, the negative and positive are coming together, until they both become the same thing. And that's exactly when the church and the Word has to be one, like Jesus and God was one, just exactly. God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself. And so will Christ have to be in the church, the anointed of the Word, to make everything fulfilled. And that's the capstone that comes upon the last church age, the... Not the Laodicea, now, it's a calling out of that, a Bride out of a church, Church out of a church, in otherwise, just like He called a nation out of a nation in Egypt. And now we're living in that day, and we're grateful for these great things that we've been seeing.
57Conferences 63-0608 P:88 Just let this fire come to this fire, and after while you'll find out it'll move that. It's come up through Luther, Wesley, Pentecost. And find out the pyramid will be capped one of these days. You know it never was capped, the pyramid on the back of your dollar. "The Great Seal," it says. And we in America... Here's the American seal on this side, but why'd they say the Great Seal, the one that Enoch made? Not pyramid doctrines now, 'cause I don't believe in that kind of stuff. But they never did cap the pyramid. Why? The--the capstone was rejected. But it will come again someday. Praise the Lord. And see in that pyramid (I've been there.), it's honed so close till even you can't run a razor blade, there's no mortar between it. It just perfectly sets together like the same stone. And when that church gets honed into the perfect image of Jesus Christ, He will come, resurrect all the saints when He comes and take them with Him. The church of the living God will be caught up.
