Let’s bow our heads for prayer.

Our Father, we thank Thee, this morning, for this grand time of coming together again, and to opening up the Word of the Lord, laying It here before us. And—and with prayer now, that the Holy Spirit will take that which is God, and will deliver It to us, that we might leave this place of worship today with happy hearts full of joy. See Your great power of deliverance, Lord, how it delivers the captive and sets them free, makes known to us “the things that was, and which is, and shall come.” And we just thank Thee for these things.

We pray that You’ll bless us as we study Thy Word now together. And when we leave, may it be said in our hearts, as we go along the way, “Our hearts burned within us as He, the Holy Ghost, talked to us while we were in the way.”

Bless every minister today, everywhere, Thy servants that’s standing for This, Thy Truth. Answer their prayers for the sick. Heal the sick bodies of those that are suffering.

Lord, we would ask that You’d go out among the people and seek out that predestined seed out there, Lord, and bring it around, in some way, that the Light will fall across the path, Lord. For, we believe that the hour is getting late, the sun is swiftly sinking in the west, then will soon be that “time shall be no more.” Time and Eternity will blend together when God and His people blends together. And we pray, God, that, at that time, that we will be numbered among those that’ll be blended into Christ, that’s called His Bride.

Help us, today, as we prepare, knowing not what tomorrow will hold, but we are ready to receive anything, Lord, as far as we know, that Thou has for us. We are ready to receive It. We ask this blessing for the glory of God, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

You may be seated.

I was sure happy, this morning, when I walked in and saw that the—the people gathered together for the service of the Lord. And we are giving announcement now for tonight. There will be healing service tonight. We’ll be praying for the sick, tonight. Just a few moments ago, they...

As I come in, Billy, my son, told me, said, “There’s a—a gentleman here, that’s just a poor man that’s drove from a long distance.” And said, “I—I put him in the room, Dad.”

I—I got in late last night, and—and didn’t get to study much on the Sunday school subject that I was going to talk on, this morning. So I picked up some little notes that I picked from what I heard some brother say, and took from that a text, to kind of have the Sunday school lesson this morning; and while we prepare, and make ready for the evening service.

And Billy said, “There’s a man in there that’s sick.” Said, “I—I—I wish you’d go by and see him.” So, I went into the room just now. And a brother about my age, and his wife, setting in there. And the Holy Spirit came down among us in the room just now.

Just think, just making mention of healing service, and there He was. See? And He told this brother all about what he had done, and what he had been doing, and what caused his trouble, and where he come from, and all about him. And there was a great dark shadow hung in the room. Then it started getting lighter, lighter, lighter, and lighter, then the Holy Spirit took a hold.

Now, I think the man is in the... somewhere back here now. He and his wife maybe can’t get into the building, but they said they were going to stay, anyhow, for the service. They come from up around, near Yakima, Washington, and drove in. And he’s a minister of the Gospel.

But just to see the grace of—of God there! Where, the man had been in the institution and had treatments and everything. The Holy Spirit revealing all this. When, the doctors trying hard to do everything that they could, perhaps, for the man, but it just took that certain little touch from God, to turn the tide. Shock treatments is all right, but it’s kind of like we’d call “a shot in the dark,” you know. You, it might make you worse, see, ’cause you’d forget everything you ever knew, when they put that medicine in you. But the Lord God, how His grace and mercy! And even before I ever offered a word of prayer for him, it was already over. See? It just took that certain something of God, that certain touch, to do it.

I oughtn’t to say this. Yeah. I’d look over, see the man now. Well, I didn’t know whether you’d make it today, or not.

Down in the country where I been staying, this week. I—I—I love my friends down there. It’s a little vacation before these big meetings, you see. And I come home, to go down there and go out squirrel hunting with these brethren. And this family, families, rather, that I stay with down there, are certainly lovely people. And the man, a real brother, friends; they are.

And one of them is a great lover of—of hunting dogs. And he has a pen full of them up there. And—and I seen the prettiest little hound down there, a little fellow, was what I call about that, “half a dog high and two dogs long,” you know, that—that was running around the house there. And I thought, “My, wouldn’t Joe like to have something like that!”

And, course, out in Arizona, couldn’t use him. He’d get in the cactus, and that would be the end of him. So then I said, too, “You can’t have it. They don’t use dogs in there, in that part of the country. Cause, they, well, they just couldn’t use them. They would... too, the weather, the—the condition of the country with cactus, and they’d get killed.” And then, true, a hound out there, a—a wolf, or something would kill him, perhaps, anyhow, if he’d get out.

So then this man said to me, “You can just have him.” But I—I couldn’t take him. I—I appreciated it. Come to find out, it was one of his favorite dogs.

And this man has got a lovely little wife and little kiddies. And the other day, she started to back out with his car, and she had this Oldsmobile car. And the little dog is only about that long, just a puppy. And she run right straight over him. That Oldsmobile going right across the little dog, in its back here, and mashed it down, where the rocks on the driveway had just pinched across its little stomach down here, you know. And—and the little wife, instead of running the little dog over to the veterinary... Course, the veterinary would just put it to sleep right then, and killed it. See?

There was another young man with me. And soon as he got up there, said, “If that was my dog, I’d shoot it.” Said, “That’s all. Let it suffer like that?”

I said, “Well, let’s not shoot it.” I said, “Let’s wait a little bit.”

Got everybody away, and went and prayed for it. The little dog followed me up on the porch. And he, [Congregation rejoices.] yes, he... See? “Whatsoever things that you desire, when you pray, believe that you receive it; ye shall have it, be given to you.” “Whatsoever things.” That’s our Lord God. Isn’t it? [Congregation says, “Amen”.] He’s—He’s marvelous and wonderful. And we certainly love Him, this morning; and expecting Him, and knowing.

Seen, the other day, a—an old couple, the mother and father of a very fine member of this—this congregation of believers. And the mother is, oh, I guess she’s close to hundred, and the dad is, too. And for around twelve years this man has never moved; on his back, just laying straight out. Or, can’t lay on his side, or nothing. Laid there for twelve years. Just old age! And the mother is now about his age, I guess, somewhere close to a hundred, and poor old thing is just about lost her mental control. She is thinking somebody is taking all she has.

And I looked at the... across the table, at all of us, young and old, setting there. And I said, “Where are we going? What are we doing?” And the lady that I was staying with then, that was her mother and dad. And I said, “You’re headed that way, too. Exactly, every one of us.” See?

Just think of it, just a moment, before we start our lesson. That’s where you’re headed. What are you struggling for? So you can live. What are you living for? So you can die. Wouldn’t it be most foolish if we didn’t accept God’s provision for Eternal Life? What could we think about? What—what could be on our mind, that would attract our attention from... to anything? What if you owned a hundred million dollars, and you owned the state of—of Indiana, or any other state, or even the nation, or, as far as that concern, the entire world?

You live long enough, you’ve got to come to that, too. See? And constantly, day by day, every time your heart beats, you’re going right straight to that. See? You, there’s no winning for you. You’re on the losing side, and, you, you’ve got to lose. But remember the promise, that, “He that’ll lose his life for My sake shall find it.” Now, what would be any more of a treasure to find than Life, though you found the whole world to be yours? But, if you—if you find Life, you found the greatest thing that could be found. I want to...

Looked to my left and saw again, just now, another trophy of the grace of the Lord. About a few weeks ago, I was called to the phone. And a lovely member of this church, or this body... I don’t want to call this so much as a church. I—I want to call this, that...

Like I was talking to some people, they said, “Well, what church you belong to?”

I said, “I don’t belong...”

“What denomination you belong to?”

I said, “None.”

Said, “Well, what do you belong to?”

I said, “A Kingdom.”

A Kingdom! “And by one Spirit we are baptized into that Kingdom.” By one Spirit, all, into this Kingdom! Jesus said, “Pray, ‘Thy Kingdom come. Thine will be done on earth, as it is in Heaven.’” Now, He stood one day before Mount Transfiguration, He said, “Verily I say to you, that some stand here, shall not taste death, until they see the Kingdom come in power.” It was foreshowed, as we’ve been through it, Mount Transfiguration. And the Bible said, “The Kingdom of God is within you.” So, this is a Kingdom people that professes that this is not their home. This is not our home. We are looking for the Coming of the King, set up the Kingdom.

I was called on an emergency case, of a—an old brother that’s been like a daddy to me. And he... I hadn’t knowed him very long, but I remember the day that I took him in here for water baptism. And the man will soon be ninety-one years old. And his lovely wife called me, and her being a nurse, said, “He had a complete heart failure.” Besides that, he had... Oh, I call... can’t call the name. Heart attack. [A sister says, “Coronary”.] Coronary heart attack. Thank you. Coronary heart attack, and a complete heart failure. Doctor give no hopes, at all. And the man was dying, and he called for me.

And I got in my little old Ford, and started up the road to Ohio, as hard as I could. And didn’t know, one of my wheels out of line, ripped the tire off of it. And so then I... getting up there. Coming out of a filling station, about eleven o’clock. I was worried about him. I—I love him. And I know, if—if it continues on, the Lord tarries, why, sooner or later, we’re going to have to give each other up.

But, that won’t hurt the Rapture, now. See? No. They come first, then. Them are privileged, that’s gone on. They come first. See? See? “We which are alive and remain, to the Coming of the Lord, will not hinder or prevent those that are asleep. The trumpet of God shall sound; the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then when our eyes behold our loved ones, then we’ll be changed, in a moment, in a twinkling of an eye, and with them shall be caught up together.” See? The ones that goes first are privileged above those that are living.

As I stepped out of the station, just at eleven o’clock, the Holy Spirit said to me, “Don’t worry about him. You’ll shake his hand, on the street again, and he’ll come in the church,” man ninety-one years old, dying.

When I met his wife and his loved ones in the hospital at Lima, they told me about his condition. Went in, looked at him in there. He said, “But he’s something strange.” Said, “He—he started changing for the better, at eleven o’clock.” Well, and I’d... The Lord had showed them people so many things, they know that I just didn’t say that. Because, they said it to me first, “He started changing.” They knowed that I would tell them the truth.

So, last Sunday, as I was going into the Blue Boar Cafeteria in Louisville, where I think about eighty percent of this congregation gathers on Sunday afternoon, to eat, who did I see coming down the street? I tell you, my heart quivered when I seen our Brother Dauch coming down the street, exactly what He told me. I shook his hand, on the—on the street.

Then I—I come back here for last Sunday night and spoke on the subject of the unity, of The Uniting Of The Time Sign. So... And then that brought that to pass, just what He said. And here he sets in the church today, right here by us, as a trophy of the grace of God. When shaking his hand under the tent, oxygen tent he was under, I said, “Brother Dauch, you’ll be all right. I’ll see you in church again. That, that’s THUS SAITH THE LORD.” See? Here he sets in the church, right here now, Brother Dauch.

If I’m not mistaken, the minister I was talking about, a few moments ago, the Holy Spirit came in and revealed all these things; told him how it happened, and told him what he done; how it happened, how it come to pass, all that’s been taking place since then, even to the character of his family, and all about that. And told him, that, “It’s over.” And the minister is setting right over here, at the right hand. Would you just raise up your hand, sir? There, he and his wife, exactly, just now.

Here sets Brother Dauch, right here now. Oh, my!

Isn’t He wonderful? [Congregation says, “Amen”.] “Those things which was, which is, and shall come to pass.” One, two, three witnesses. “The things which was, what you have done; the things that’s going on now; and the things that will come to pass.” And every time, exactly, exactly upon the Word. That’s only God can do that. Oh! Aren’t we most happy for these things? [“Amen”.]

Now, reason I was taking just a little bit extra time, Billy had to go get his wife and baby. And he said, “Daddy, don’t start preaching till I get back.” So, I—I think he’s back now. And I ought to have that much time, anyhow. And I’m trying to get away from these four hours of strain that I put you all under here, and make it thirty-five, forty minutes, you see, and trying to keep it.

Now, I was commented one time in Chicago. I got it to a thirty minute, or something, thirty-five minutes. And last Sunday night was only forty-five minutes. Billy said, “You’re really improving, dad. I’m kind of proud of you, for that.”

Well, maybe, this morning, to make it a little Sunday school type, I won’t keep you too long. Then you can go out and have your lunch, and pray, and come back tonight for healing services. We’re going to form a prayer line tonight and pray for the sick.

Now, if you know any peoples around, anywhere, that’s sick and wants to be prayed for, you bring them here tonight. See? If you have to bring them, any way, get them here. See? That’s the main thing, is, bring them here tonight. We all meet together. That way... It’s hard to make calls, going place after place; then you leave off somebody, and there’s a hard feeling. But if I can get them all in one place, then I could pray for them. Now, if you’ll... If the people wants to be prayed for, they... You say, “Will they?” Oh, certainly. They’ll be prayed for. Bring them on in. The Lord willing, we’ll be here, pray for everybody. Cause, I feel that that third pull is beginning to move, you see, with—within me. And I—I—I want to pray for everybody.

Now let us turn, this morning to a familiar old Scripture where I kind of picked up in a hurry last night, being real sleepy, and wrote out a few more Scriptures to go with it. And taking kind of complimentary. I heard some brother, once, use this text. And I thought... I jotted it down. I thought, “Well, I believe I’ll jot that down, ’cause it might come in handy.”

Lot of times we do that. I notice, many of you here, had a piece of paper. And a minister can be saying something, and then you’ll—you’ll hit that point, something will strike within you. And then if the Holy Spirit is doing that, then you’ll start building from that very point right there, a message for the Lord. And that’s all right. I’ve noticed in meetings, wherever you go, just preachers and people jotting down. That’s all right. We—we are here, that’s what we’re here for, is to try to help one another along these roads.

And now let’s turn to Revelation, the 3rd chapter, at the church ages, repeating a church age. But now we are... we... there. Yeah. I could take this one text, and with the Holy Spirit, preach on It a hundred years and never get what’s in It out. Because, in this one text, like all other texts of the Bible, It’s all tied together.

And I want to take my subject, this morning, of this: How Can I Overcome? Now, I chose this because that I think that it’s a time that we should never let the Spirit of revival die. We’ve got to keep in revival, constantly revived, every day. Paul said he had to “die daily, that Christ could live.” And we must never let that revival die, within us.

Now, Revelation, the 3rd chapter, and beginning with the 21st verse, we read this:

To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I... overcome, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Did you notice the—the ’rangements of that? See? “Set with Me in My throne,” not “on My throne.” “In My throne,” that’s in His domain. See? And there, as—as Christ is the Ruler, throne Ruler at this time, of the complete domain of God, so will the Church be with Him, the Bride be with Him, in His throne, in the entire domain. See? Not “on My throne,” but “in My throne,” see, where His domain reaches. A throne is over a domain, and—and a domain reaches just as far as its boundaries does. And this is from Eternity to Eternity. Just think of it!

Now, as we study this, my purpose of this is just not to come here to—to fellowship with you people. Which, I love to do that. But if—if I had a chance to do that, I would come to your home, and shake your hand and talk with you, and set down, eat dinner with you; and set down, under the shade tree, and talk and fellowship a while.

But when we come here, we are here for one specific purpose. This is the house of correction. This is the throne. This is the throne of God, and judgment goes forth from the house of God. And here is where we come together, gather in love, with one another, as only Christians can love. But, in here, we are... we are under a—a—a—a leadership of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Ghost is among us. And we’re here to be... to take reckoning among us, to see where our short places are, our shortcoming, and how can we catch from where we should be, over to where we ought to be now; where we are, and where we ought to be. And that’s what we study. Ministers study those places, for their people. When they see the people, the lack, then they begin on that.

Now, soon, I think that the church maybe should be taking just a little step higher at this time. I don’t plan on doing it this morning, of showing these things. But I—I think, shortly, the Lord willing, before we preach on those Trumpets, I want to—to—to bring the Church just something that—that you should know, I believe, now.

And now we’re speaking on this, “overcoming.” The word "overcome", of course, you know what it means. You’ve got to have something to overcome. And this church age that the Holy Spirit was speaking about here, at the Laodicea Church Age, as we have just been through it, needed a rebuking. Laodicea had to be rebuked, because of its—its different towards Christ. It had put Christ outside, in—in their age. And Christ was on the outside, trying to get back on the inside. That’s love. After He had been put out of His Own house, was trying to come back in, and said, “He that’ll open the door, I’ll come in to him.” See? The church, itself, in whole, had put Him out.

But now notice. His call here is not to just the church. “He that overcometh.” See? Not the church; that would be she, see, the church body. But it’s “he that overcometh,” the individual that will overcome, now.

And Laodicea had it coming to her.

Now we see, then, knowing that this is the Laodicea Age, and knowing that this age needs a sharp rebuke from God. It needs a sharp rebuke. And when our clergy gets so soft and doty, like some aged grandfather to his grandchildren, ever what they do is perfect. And they’re...

It’s been said so much, that God is such a good God, until they try to make God just a big doty grandfather. You see? But He is not. He is a Father, and a Father of righteousness, of correction. And love is always corrective. See? Love corrects. No matter how bad it hurts, it still corrects.

A real mother will correct her children. A real dad will correct. See? If you just get soft and doty, and let it...

I was crossing an old log the other day, down a—a wash, or what is called a hollow. And I jumped up on this log. On the outside, it looked good, looked like a big old beech log. But when I jumped on it, oh, a great chunk of it fell off. It was real rotten and doty. I said, “That’s the way the Christians are becoming.” They been dead in sin and trespasses, so long, till become doty. They can hold no weight, at all. They—they don’t know what the overcoming means. And I begin to think of this text, then. Overcome, keep Life in you. When life went out, that’s what brought that log to that condition. See? And it made it worse than ever when it laid in the branch where the water was.

And then, there, you take a Christian, that’s supposed to be a Christian, let the Life of God go from him, and the experience, the joy of serving Christ; and, living in a church where such is going on, he rottens twice as quick, right, living right under.

So, if we are trying to follow the Message of the hour, or at least this part of the Message, we should live constantly in the Life of Christ. See? Cause, if it don’t, you lay around, and know That, these things that you’re supposed to do, and don’t do it. The Bible said, “He that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it’s sin.” Then you become doty, rotten, when you’re separated from the Life of God. So, strive with all that’s in you, to stay in the Life of Christ, that you would be fruit-bearing.

We see this age that we’re living in. It’s one of the grandest ages of all ages. This Laodicea Church Age is the grandest of all the church ages, because it’s the ending of time and the blending of Eternity. And, then, it’s the greatest sinful age. It’s more sin in this age than there’s ever been. And the powers of Satan is—is many times harder to fight against than it was in any age. See? Here!

Back there in early ages, a Christian could, for his profession of being a church... of belonging to Christ, could be beheaded for it. He could be killed, and put out of his misery, and go to meet God, quickly.

But now the enemy has come in, in the name of the church, and it’s so deceiving. This is the great age of deception. When, Christ said so, “The two spirits would be so close in the last days till it would deceive the very Elected if it was possible.” See? See? See? Remember, Christ spoke of an elected people for the last day. See? “It would deceive the very Elected if it were possible.” So close!

The people so live, people can live a clean, holy life; not be sinful, adulterers, and drinkers, and liars, gamblers. They can live above that, and still not with It.

This is the—the age of Life, personal Life of Christ, where, the—the chemical of His Body, what was in Him.

First, under justification, the water baptism. Second, under the new Birth, of Wesley, sanctification, which cleanses. And thirdly, under the baptism of the Holy Spirit, putting that sanctified vessel into service. See? The word sanctify means, it’s a compound Greek word which means “cleaned and set aside for service,” set aside for service. Now the Holy Spirit puts it in service. See?

And we’ll notice, “When the unclean spirit is gone from a man, he walks in dry places.” That’s exactly what the church has done, Baptists, Methodists, those who believed in sanctification. “Then,” Jesus said, “the unclean spirit that went out, returns back to this church body and finds the house garnished, swept clean, living pure, clean lives.” All right. “But then if that house isn’t filled, occupied, then he comes in with seven other evil demons worse than he was, and the last stage of this place is seven times worse than it was at the first place.” They had been better to stay Lutheran, than it would to be to receive that Light and fail to follow It. So will the Pentecostals, see, you know what I mean, the house is garnished.

As I was talking to someone, the other day, said, “They’re very careful, even many of the holiness groups, not to call the Holy Ghost, ‘Holy Ghost,’ ’cause they identify themselves with Pentecostals when they do that. They say, ‘Holy Spirit,’ see, keep from saying, ‘Holy Ghost.’” Because, the Pentecostal, common people, just call It what the Bible says, “Holy Ghost.” Which, Holy Spirit and Holy Ghost is the same thing. But they’re very careful about it. They don’t want to be identified with them tongues-speaking people; and that’s the Holy Spirit, Itself. See?

What happened then? When the enemy, that went out under sanctification, that was washed out, returned back and found the house not filled with the Holy Spirit, now the state of the church is joined with the—with the league of churches, with the World Council of Churches. And it’s a state now that connects it with Roman Catholicism and all the rest of it, and now it’s seven times worse than it was when it come out of Lutheranism. That’s where man takes it.

And then look at the Laodicea Church Age after has received the Holy Ghost, and with the knowledge and the Spirit of God within It, and then the works of God is denied by it, and call It “an evil work.” Then what about that? There is where Christ is put out of His Own church. See? He... It never showed Him in the church until it come to Laodicea; and when He got to Laodicea, He had been put out of His church, trying to get back in.

Now, see, justification never put Him in. Sanctification just cleaned the place for Him. But when the baptism of the Holy Spirit come, it put Him in the people. And now they turned Him out, when He begin to show Hisself, that He’s the same yesterday, today, and forever. They turned Him out because they have denominated, and the—the Spirit of the Lord don’t agree with their denomination. You understand now? [Congregations says, “Amen”.] That, they put Him out. “We don’t want nothing to do with this telepathy. It’s—it’s of the devil. It’s fortune-telling. Or... ” See?

They don’t understand. “Eyes, and can’t see; ears, and can’t hear.” See? God only opens eyes as He will. “He hardens who He hardens, He wishes to, and—and—and gives Life to those who He desires to.” That’s what the Scripture said.

Now, we see these hours that we’re in, this stage, and we see what it was. And the Holy Ghost is rebuking the age that put Him out. But, in all that, did you notice, “To him that overcometh”? [Congregation says, “Amen”.] Even in that worldly, wicked church age, “Him that overcometh.”

We find here that God has always had overcomers. He’s had overcomers in every age. There’s always, every time, in every age that there’s been on the earth, God has always had somebody He could put His hands on, as a witness in the earth. He’s never been without a witness, though sometimes just one. But somebody overcome, now, like the saints of old.

And a—a very fine man, a scholar, was saying, after The Seven Seals, he said, “Brother Branham, you being a—a typist, typologist, rather,” said, “how in the world are you going to put that Church in the Rapture without the Tribulation period, in a type?” He said...

You see, if it’s a type, there’s got to be a... there’s got... If there’s an antitype, there’s got to be a type for that antitype to come from. And everything I say, that is true, has a type. It has a type. You have a shadow. And the Bible said, “The old things was a shadow of the new things to come.”

He said, “But now you took the Old Testament as a shadow. Now,” he said, “what you going to do with this Church?”

This man comes from a... A great man, a great teacher that’s a bosom friend of mine, very good man, and he’s a lovely brother. I—I’d be daresn’t to say one word against the brother. I wouldn’t, anyhow. As—as a... As a Christian, I wouldn’t say nothing against him. He—he—he don’t agree with me on that one subject, but he—he’s my precious brother. We eat together. And, oh, he’s just a dandy fellow. I take his magazine, read his articles. And he writes some of mine, and so forth. And I’ve took a many a texts out of what I—I’ve read—read of his articles, hear him say. He’s a great man, but he—he just can’t agree with me. I appreciate that, of his sincerity. Though he don’t just, one of these pushover, just have to agree with everything you say. He’s got his own conviction, and he stands for it. I appreciate that. And he’s a good man. Oh, I—I am not a teacher or scholar, at all, but this man is both teacher and scholar.

But I—I can’t agree with him, ’cause I don’t see it. But, it doesn’t pertain to salvation, it’s pertaining to the Coming of the Lord. He sees that the Church has to go through the Tribulation period, for purification. I say the Blood of Jesus Christ purified the Church. See? It needs no...

I believe that the church goes through the Tribulation period, church organization, but the Bride does not. Would you choose a woman you had to purify before you married her? See? Christ’s Bride is chosen, and She is Elected. And She is God’s Bride, the Bride of Jesus Christ.

And now he said, “How you going to type that, if that Bride goes forth, goes up before She goes through the Tribulation period?” Said, “I got Scripture that shows you that the Church is in the Tribulation period.”

I said, “Just read the Sixth Seal, that’s all, she is right there under the Tribulation period. But find out, just before that, the Bride is done gone. See? She is in Glory at that time. She has no purification.” See?

“He that believeth on Me has everlasting Life, and shall not come into condemnation or the Judgment, but has passed from death unto Life.” Christ gave the promise that we would not even stand at the Judgment. So freely did He take my place, until I’m absolutely free. When I’m pardoned, I’m pardoned. How can He take me out of the pawnshop, got a clear receipt, if... How can He be my Redeemer, and take me from the pawn shop, and the broker still say I belong to him? I got a written receipt, amen, see, wrote by the Blood of Jesus Christ. See?

He said, “Now, how are you going to get, separate that elected Bride you talk about now, how you going to put That under a type?”

I said, “Very good.” I say, “Here it is. Now, in Matthew, the 27th chapter and the 51st verse.” If we...

Let me just read it, and then we—we got it good. Then we find out whether it was typed or not, whether it’s the elected Bride. Matthew, the 27th chapter and the—and the 51st verse. All right. We read this, at the crucifixion of our Lord:

And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom;...

Now, that was the law. The law ended right there. Because, the veil kept the congregation from the holy articles of God. Only an anointed priest went in there, and, that, once a year. Remember? [Congregation says, “Amen”.] Now, God, with His Own hand, notice, “from the top to the bottom,” not from the bottom to the top. It’s some forty-feet high. Notice, not from the bottom to the top, but “from the top to the bottom,” showed it was done by God. Rent the veil in two, then though, anyone, whosoever will, may come and partake of His holiness. See? All right.

...from top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;

And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,

And came out of the graves after his resurrection,... went into the holy city, and appeared to many.

There is that Elected, that Bride. Not all of the Jewish church come forth at that time. All of them made the same sacrifice. All of them was under the shed blood of the lamb. But there was an elected Group; and that elected Group, as soon as the event come, that really believed in It with sincerity. Now I’m coming to the word overcome. Now hold that. These that had really overcome, sincerely making the same offering that the rest of them made, but, in sincerity, overcome the things of the world. When the propitiation correctly was made for them, they were in paradise until that play at that time. When that time was made, they had overcome and was resting, sleeping; see, “many bodies of those that slept in the dust,” see, slept.

Now, if we had time, we could go on back to Daniel, when, Daniel, that elected one that had overcome. And He said, “Close up the Book, Daniel, for thou shall rest in thy lot. But when the Prince shall come, which will stand for the people, thou shall stand in that lot.” Here it is. Daniel, this prophet of God, saw the end time coming. And He said, “Daniel, you’ll stand in your lot at that day.” And here he was, come forth; not all of Israel, but the Bride-type of Israel. Now, the rest of Israel don’t come forth until the general resurrection.

And now, at the Coming of the Lord Jesus, those who are really loving His Coming, that’s living for it; when He appears in the sky, the Church that’s dead in Christ shall rise, and those will be changed in a moment. The rest of them will know nothing about it. Remember, “Appeared to those in the city.” See? The—the—the Rapture will be like that. We’ll see each other, and we’ll see them. The rest of the world won’t see them. It’ll be caught away as a secret going. Waiting for that time!

Then returning back to the earth for that glorious Millennium, then the thousand years... “The rest of the dead lived not for a thousand years.”

And then come forth the general resurrection, where, all Israel. And also, looky there, the twelve apostles, the twelve patriarchs, all represented. And we ain’t never got to that yet. Maybe, the Lord willing, we’ll get to it in the Testament, how that those walls of jasper, and twelve stones, twelve gates, twelve foundations, all of that’s represented. Here they are on twelve thrones, the angel-messengers of those days, to pass judgment upon those who rejected their message. Amen. There comes forth that great hour. Yeah.

What a day, what a time that we’re living! How that we should check up, Church. Now we talk about these things coming, that’s going to come. Now, today, let’s drop back here and see, check ourselves and see if we’re right in the Faith.

Now let’s talk of a few overcomers for a few minutes, in the days of Noah’s time, which was typed by Jesus Christ, of being like today.

I suppose to have ten minutes. Now I’ll be a half hour. I just getting started, the first page. I’ll skip a few of them, if I can. And get what...

In Noah’s time, type of today: Jesus referred to it, and said, “As it was in Noah’s time, so shall it be in the Coming of the Son of man. In Noah’s time, so shall it be in the Coming of the Son of man.” Notice, there were all that antediluvian world, perhaps of millions of people, there was eight overcomers. Eight people overcome, that was real, genuine overcomers. There was Noah’s three sons and their wives, and Noah and his wife. Eight overcome, that entered the ark at the appropriate time. How did they do it? They listened to the Word of God. They wasn’t caught outside the door. They were caught inside the door.

Oh, my beloved friends, don’t let that door shut. Jesus said, “As it was in that day, so shall it be in the Coming of the Son of man.” (Thank you, brother.) “So shall it be in the Coming of the Son of man.” Now, there’s somebody is going to get caught outside that door.

Many of them might have had good intentions, and, “Some day, if such things happen, we’ll go in with Brother Noah, ’cause he’s a fine fellow.” But, you see, it caught just eight inside.

Now, think hard now. If you are laying around, getting doty, get in. Hurry, quick, ’cause the door might close at any time.

And there’s always been an ark in God’s economy. There was an ark in the days of Noah, for the saving of His people. There was an ark in the days of the law, ark of testimony. In the days of the law, they followed the ark.

And there is a third dispensation now; like Noah’s time, Lot’s time, and now this time. There is an ark now. And that ark is not a denomination, neither is it a good works that you do. It’s “by one Spirit,” Romans 8:1, “we are all baptized into one Body, in the domain of that Kingdom, one Spiritual baptism.” No matter how good, how bad, whatever, you’re in that Kingdom by—by Holy Ghost baptism. See? That’s the only way you overcome. It’s all that is under the shed Blood is overcomers, ’cause you cannot overcome, yourself. It’s He that overcome for you. You’re resting.

“How will I know then, Brother Branham, that I’m in There?” Watch what kind of a life you’re living. Just look around. See if it’s just lived out of you, automatically. Or, do you have to strain and pull, see, then you’re doing it. But don’t try to do it. Did you ever try? Yeah. Don’t.

Just like putting a little baby’s arm in a sleeve hole, you see. He’s just up, down, over, and everything else. See? He can’t do it. “Put on your coat, honey.” He can’t do it. Little arm is up, down, around. It takes your steady hand.

Oh, how glad I am, I can just yield my hand to Father, say, “Lord Jesus, I can’t get in There. You help me. Put the coat on me.” I quit trying. Just let Him do it. See?

If the little baby keeps trying, “Oh, I can do it. I can do it.” And he’s just everywhere. He can’t do it.

Neither can you, neither can I, but if we’ll just hold still and let Him do it. Just yield to Him, “Here, Lord, here I am. Just—just let me be nothing. I—I yield. You put my hand in the right place.” That’s the victory. That’s overcoming.

The thing you have to overcome is yourself, your idea, your thing, and surrender yourself to Him. He overcome for you. He knows the way; we don’t.

But in Noah’s time there was eight overcomers, and that’s what went in. They were caught inside.

Now look, friends. I believe they’re taping this. And if it’s on television, or not tel-... pardon me, a tape. Whatever you do, who is listening now, or who will listen hereafter, the hour is very late, and you do have good intention, but be caught inside. Now, don’t struggle. “Not him that willeth, or him that runneth, but God.” Just let God. Just yield yourself to Him and walk on, with a perfect, satisfied faith, that, “What God has promised He is able to perform.” Not joining one denomination, another denomination, running this, that, or the other, trying this. Just yield yourself to God, and walk with Him, peaceful, quiet, not interrupted. Just keep on walking with Him. That’s right.

That’s what I told our brother that just had the—the breakdown. See? “Just yield to Him. He’s here, He Who knowed what you have done, and what caused your being and doing this way, and all that. He knows all about you, and now He’s just told you back just what to do. Now,” I said, “only thing you have to do is just go do it. That is, forget all about the past, walk, live for the future, in the Glory and Presence of God.”

Eight overcomers.

In the days of Daniel’s time, there was four overcomers that could stand the test of fire and lion.

Now, we’re expected to be tested. That’s a good lesson for my—my brother back there, also. “He that cometh to God must first be tested.” Tested (what?) with the Word. That’s God’s test. Do you believe it? [Congregation says, “Amen”.] “He that cometh to God must be tested.” That only shows a true child, then, see, be tested. And when the test comes on... You can’t overcome ’less there’s a test give to you. And when test is given, it’s to see whether you can overcome or not. And Jesus said, “To him that overcometh,” the test. The test is the greatest thing that ever happened to you. I believe it’s written in the Scripture, Peter said, that, “Our trials are worth more to us than precious gold.” It’s a testing time. It’s one good evidence to us that God is with us, when we’re tested, for all children of God are tested and tried.

And Daniel, a man, a prophet; Shadrach; Meshach; and Abednego; Daniel was the prophet; and that was the size of the Church in that day, I mean, the Bride. There’s lots of church, about two million of them went down there. But there was... That was the size of the overcomer. And them overcomers was put to the test. And every overcomer has to be put to the test. And when they said, “You take back what the Word says, or either be throwed in the fiery furnace,” they refused anything but the Word.

And when Daniel was given a test, that he should take back what the Word said, that they should lean towards the temple, as Solomon prayed, and He would deliver them from all things. God would hear from Heaven if they’d lay... look towards the temple and pray. And said, “If any man prays within these amount of days... And we are Medo-Persians, who cannot change or alter our laws. That man will be throwed into the lions’ den.”

They set a trap for him. I believe that prophet knew that. But they set a trap for him. He walked humbly. When it come time for him to pray... When, he knowed, at the home place in Jerusalem, there was a burning sacrifice on the altar. Daniel wasn’t afraid of them spies. Raised up the shades, and threw back the shutters, and knelt down on his knees, and throwed his hands up to God and prayed. Why? Live or die, he had the victory. And, therefore, so much victory till the lions couldn’t eat it. He—he overcome.

The... Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego had so much victory until the lion... till the fire couldn’t burn them. You know, victory is a hard thing to burn out, or eat up, or anything. See? So, they, they had it.

I might mention another character. In the days of Lot, Jesus referred to it, there were only three that overcome, Lot and his two daughters. Not even his wife; didn’t overcome. She—she started out. She’s a type. Wish we had time. My thirty minutes is up right now. See? See? She, she done all right, she left.

Now I’ve got to give this to you, just a moment. Many of you has left, too. Many of you left these things, to take your stand, after you search It through the Scripture and find It’s right. You seen the vindication of Almighty God; not by some, what somebody said was a vindication. What the Bible said would be, and here It is doing it. You saw It was the Truth. So, you’ve set out, to leave Sodom, leave the denomination, leave the things that bind you to a creed; and to follow Christ, by the Holy Spirit vindicating Himself by the written Word of God. In other words, you took the Bible instead of the creed. You’ve set out, to follow.

Well, Lot’s wife did the same thing, you know. She set out, to go with Lot, follow her husband, her children, her loved ones, but It wasn’t in her heart. She still loved the world. So it’s possible you can make a start, and still be the world in you. See? She never overcome. And even though she was well on the road, it finally overthrowed her. She had to take that one big, long, last look. There’s where she got caught. Don’t even look back. Don’t have no desires. Keep going. Put your mind on Calvary and keep moving towards Christ. See?

She started out, as an overcomer, but she never did overcome. Oh, she left the denomination. She did. She walked out of Sodom, with Lot. But she wanted to go back and have her hair cut. You know what I mean. See? She had to go back. She just couldn’t stand the—the test. She had to look back again, to see what the rest of them was doing. “Oh, you know, I had some good friends down there, after all. And, after all, this might be just a little—a little move. I don’t know whether it could be right or not. I—I’ve only got this man’s word for it, though he’s my husband. But yet... ” Your pastor is your husband, spiritually speaking, you see. “Now, whether it could be right or not, I don’t know. Maybe he, his revelation wasn’t right.”

Then, if you’re not perfectly satisfied, you’re not perfectly know that It’s the Word of God, then—then you can’t go. See? You got to be really sold out. You’ve got to know. Not just say, “Well, I see others doing it. I see a sign.”

You know, Israel started out, I could say the same thing and bring it in here. They started out, two million strong, and ended up with two men. Right. They saw the works of God. They saw the manifestation of the Spirit. They saw great, mighty miracles being done there in Egypt, and everything, and started out. But it—it wasn’t in their heart. They didn’t overcome. They just come out. And Jesus said, “And they perished in the wilderness,” and are Eternally dead. “Every one of them is dead,” that means Eternal separation. Every one of them rotted in the wilderness.

But there was two men, Joshua and Caleb. And when it come to the showdown, the obstacles was so great till they looked like grasshoppers side of them. Joshua screamed out with Caleb, and said, “We are more than able to do it.” Why? “God said so.” And they were overcomers. They overcome. They was the ones that was privileged, out of that whole great organization of people, to take the real, elected Bride into the promised land. Joshua and Caleb in the front lines out there, as the two generals, led them right down to the river, and crossed the river, over into the promised land. Why? They believed the Word, no matter what.

Then, Dathan raised.

They said, “We’ll just start a group of people and we’ll make this, that, or the other, and we’ll make our organizations, we’ll do... ” And they died and perished.

But those men had that Word of the Lord, and they stayed with It, and they went over.

“Not he that starts; he that finishes.” Many start the race, but there’s One finishing it. There’ll be many churches start, many groups of people. There’ll be one Group finish. That’s the overcomers.

Lot’s day, yes, she had to have that one great, long look back. “Oh, I’m leaving So-and-so down there, them fine times we used to have. I’ll never forget it.” And she was caught, shut out, like it was in the days of Noah. She was shut out, without mercy, and she perished. And the—the lump still stands there today. They claim (I don’t know) you could break a piece off of it and it’ll grow back, a salt pillar. You ever see that picture of Sodom And Gomorrah, you’ll see the original pillar of salt that stood there.

Now, there’s a difference between a pillar of salt and a Pillar of Fire. See? You have to turn one way. Yeah.

Notice, in John the Baptist’s time. In John the Baptist’s time, there was found six that had overcome. All ages, they’ve had overcomers. In John’s time they had six, that was Joseph and Mary, Zacharias and Elisabeth, Simeon and Ann.

It’s just like a lily. Where is... A lily, I think, is one of the most prettiest flowers that there is. I’m very fond of those great calla lilies and pond lily. I think there’s nothing hardly as pretty as a great big pond lily, call it water lily. How it’s radiance! Now, where does it come from? It’s a little seed, down in the bottom of a muddy, mucky pond. And that little seed, yet, all the radiance that’ll ever shine in it, is in it right then, when it’s in that mud. But it has to strive, daily, knowing that there is something. It’s black. It’s dirty. It’s mucky. It’s slimy. In that slime that it’s living in, yet it presses its way through the mud, the muck, and the waters, and the stagnant places, until it sticks its head above, in the light, and expresses what’s been hid in it all the time.

I think that’s an overcomer, that, once in sin, once did things that was wrong, don’t worry about it now. Once did things that was wrong, then, now why look back into the pond again? See? Look, you have...

Neither did you, in your—your sin, and adultery, and everything that you lived in. You didn’t express nothing. But there was a seed in there, and it got a chance to press itself into Light. And now you’re in the Presence of Jesus Christ, with the Son Light. It brought out what you really was in the beginning. You see what I mean? You saw the Light. You bloomed out.
