98 But the Spirit of the Lord is possessing Him. So, it is a name of the Spirit of the Lord. So the King is not Me, but the Unseen God. He came to reveal His love to you into Jesus. Even after you do all kinds of atrocities if He is forgiving you, see that love.
You just understand the love of God. You are always rebellious. From the beginning till end we have been rebellious. Not only us, but our great grand father and great great grand father are all thieves. 99 But see the grace! He stands for that name. “My name should not be defiled; I will kill anyone for that sake. I will destroy nations.” It is not the promise of father Abraham or Isaac or Jacob. All those promises have gone. Baptism and all promise are all finished.
Baptism, communion and all those blessings are all finished. Even he went to idol worship. 100 Only one thing is there! After that name is revealed, that name should not be defiled. Before He revealed the name, this name can be spoilt. Once He reveals the name, He will fight for that name forever. Whether you are good or bad is not the question. So what does He say? After bringing them into Canaan, now again in anger what does He do? 24. Because they had not executed my judgments, but had despised my statutes, and had polluted my sabbaths, and their eyes were after their fathers’ idols. — Where did their eyes go after? They were after their father’s idols. 23. I lifted up mine hand unto them also in the wilderness, that I would scatter them among the heathen, and disperse them through the countries;
— See, what happens thereafter? He scatters them. It seems He lifted up His hand in the wilderness to disperse them through the countries. When was this?
This was not in Egypt. After bringing them to Babylon, spreading them, spreading them as powder, He has kept them to be dispersed through the countries. 103 What are the names? We are those tribes. What is the name of any fellow? Low caste; Harijan; backward community. These are the original people. But what are you doing today? “O, I belong to the low caste.”
104 Why did you become the lower caste? Because you forgot God. Return unto God. What does the grace do? “You can do any atrocity, but return to Me. Don’t bring about a bad name to My name.”
24. Because they had not executed my judgments, but had despised my statutes, and had polluted my sabbaths, and their eyes were after their fathers’ idols. 25. Wherefore I gave them also statutes that were not good, and judgments whereby they should not live;
— What? After that what does He give? He gave statues that were not good. Through whom? Through Jesus Christ. These statutes were given so that you may not thrive. What are the statutes? “If someone smites you on your cheek, turn to him the other also.” If anyone calls you, “Hey, you low caste,” you say, “Smite me on the other cheek; of course I belong to the low caste.” So, as the time goes, you are going further down. “If someone compels you to go a mile, you have to go with him twain.” Why? Because you are a coolie. You run even for two paise. Today, what does the full time worker do? Mm? He sells Bible; he sell this, that; and even he sells God. What does He say?
25. Wherefore I gave them also statutes that were not good, and judgements whereby they should not live;
— You know how thievish Jesus gave those statutes, for you to be scattered and to be ruined! If you are united, that is life; but if you are scattered to each and every place? 108 What is communion? “I will take communion in my house; I will not take there. He has the spirit; I do not have it. He is a dirty fellow. So, communion in my house.” So, even communion was scattered into thousands. Because of what? To scatter Jesus came. What did He do? He started winnowing the seed. All over the world they had to go because, nobody will agree with each other. 26. And I polluted them in their own gifts, in that they caused to pass through the fire all that openeth the womb, that I might make them desolate, to the end that they might know that I am the LORD. 27. Therefore, son of man, speak unto the house of Israel, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Yet in this your fathers have blasphemed me, in that they have committed a trespass against me.
— Still they are doing that. Even after scattering them, these unfaithful people are still doing that. 28. For when I had brought them into the land, for the which I lifted up mine hand to give it to them, then they saw every high hill, and all the thick trees, and they offered there their sacrifices, and there they presented the provocation of their offering: there also they made their sweet savour, and poured out there their drink offerings. 29. Then I said unto them, What is the high place whereunto ye go? And the name thereof is called Bamah unto this day. 30. Wherefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Are ye polluted after the manner of your fathers? and commit ye whoredom after their abominations? 31. For when ye offer your gifts, when ye make your sons to pass through the fire, ye pollute yourselves with all your idols, even unto this day: and shall I be enquired of by you, O house of Israel? As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I will not be enquired of by you.
— Hereafter you don’t have whom? You don’t have a prophet. 32. And that which cometh into your mind shall not be at all, that ye say, We will be as the heathen, as the families of the countries, to serve wood and stone.
115 See, after coming here, what did he do? When the British came, where did all the lost tribes of Israel join? They accepted Christ. But two or three communities alone did not join where? Because, these are the leaders.
These are the tribe of Judah. The tribe of Judah, tribe of Benjamin, tribe of Levi, household of David. 116 What zeal they had was, “Did You not destroy our temple? Did You not break the places where we have prayer, so hereafter we are not going to worship You.” Who got this zeal? To whom did this zeal come? To the two tribes who don’t belong to the household of Israel. To Benjamin, to Judah, to Levi and to the household of David. What did they do? “We will stay where we are. We are not worried about God. We will stay along with them,” saying so, what did he do? That is why these Hindus were not converted to Christians. Then we will see, what He says. 32. And that which cometh into your mind shall not be at all, that ye say, We will be as the heathen, as the families of the countries, to serve wood and stone. — We will serve the wood and stone. And, we will not become an heathen, but we will be as the heathen. 33. As I live, saith the Lord GOD, surely with a mighty hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out, will I rule over you: — Then what He does is, He rule only them. That He left for the twelve tribes. I will rule over you with fury poured out. Who is ruling us today? God is ruling. In His fury He says, “I will not leave you. You try to do whatever you may.” He is with so much zeal over us. 34. And I will bring you out from the people, and will gather you out of the countries wherein ye are scattered, with a mighty hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out. — I will bring you out from the people so that you be not among them.
35. And I will bring you into the wilderness of the people, — Where does He bring to? Wilderness of the people. The wilderness of the people is in India only. It is not desert. In the wilderness there will be trees and plants. But in the desert there will not be trees and plants. Both are different. and there will I plead with you face to face. — He has finished pleading, sir. It is not hereafter. “I will plead.”
36. Like as I pleaded with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so will I plead with you, saith the Lord GOD. 37. And I will cause you to pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant:
Leviticus 27:32: And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even of whatsoever passeth under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto the LORD. In that, the tenth shall be holy unto the Lord. What does passing under the rod mean? The rod means, after destroying everything will He not keep a residue, that is passing under the rod; under the punishment; escaping the punishment. So, who are all those who came to the wilderness? Those who escaped punishment.
Ezekiel 19:37: And I will cause you to pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant: — Bond of the covenant. That is not the bond of baptism; that is not the bond of communion; that is not the bond of church. What bond is that? 38. And I will purge out from among you the rebels, and them that transgress against me: — What does He do first? He brings them inside. And then He purges among you the rebels and the traitors. That has happened already. 38b. I will bring them forth out of the country where they sojourn, — Listen! “After sending them off, what do I do to the residue?” 38c. and they shall not enter into the land of Israel: and ye shall know that I am the LORD. — Where will not one set enter? One set of people who kept the statutes went to Palestine. 128 What did not one set do? The set of people who stood with zeal, what do they do? They say: “We will be like this only; for the things which You have done to us, we will also do like that.” Like that only some people speak: “You can try doing anything.” Like that, these are a set of people with such kind of zeal. Then what does He do? He brings them, makes them pass under the rod, brings a tenth out of them, puts them in the wilderness, chases away the rebels from among them, and then what does He do to the residue of them? “Hereafter you cannot enter inside Palestine. They will not want you.” This is because of what? Because he showed this zeal, what zeal does He show? “I will not take you.” How? “I will not take you to the earth, like how I took them there.”
39. As for you, O house of Israel, thus saith the Lord GOD; Go ye, serve ye every one his idols, and hereafter also, if ye will not hearken unto me: but pollute ye my holy name no more with your gifts, and with your idols.
— “You serve every one his idols. Did you not say because of your zeal, serve you every one his idols.” But bringing them He tells, “Still you go to serve every one his idols.” and hereafter also, if ye will not hearken unto me: but pollute ye my holy name no more with your gifts, and with your idols. — Hereafter, whatever you may do, you can drink, you can be out of your senses, you can do anything, you can marry any number of wives, you can go and worship the idols anywhere, I leave you. But only if you bring a bad name to my name, that what does it mean? “If you don’t lead a good life, and you bring a bad name to my name, then I will destroy you. But you do whatever you like. But see that My name doesn’t get defiled. 40. For in mine holy mountain, in the mountain of the height of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, there shall all the house of Israel, all of them in the land, serve me: there will I accept them, and there will I require your offerings, and the firstfruits of your oblations, with all your holy things. — Where is the mountain of the height of Israel?
The highest mountain in the whole world is the Himalayas. If you see that, it is ‘Himalaya’ – ‘Alaya’. Himmel means heaven; and so it is ‘temple of heaven’. Now, there is not a big mountain in Zion. 132 You know what the people say? It seems David ruled in that small country. When the British government came, they wanted to put all the names in Palestine, so that people will be blinded. He kept every name in Palestine itself. In Persia, this Daniel was in which river? Hiddekel river. But this fellow put everything in Euphrates itself. Pison is China river; Gihon is Ganges. Where is Hiddekel? It is in Persia. Only Euphrates flows where? To Palestine. And there he put everything. Putting Gihon, Pison, everything there, he said, “All these rivers were here only.” But it went to all the countries. Formerly it was one mountain which was giving life to all. 40. For in mine holy mountain, in the mountain of the height of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, there shall all the house of Israel, all of them in the land, serve me: there will I accept them, there will I accept them, and there will I require your offerings, and the firstfruits of your oblations, with all your holy things. — Where will He accept them? In the mountain. Mountain means, it doesn’t mean mount Zion. 41. I will accept you with your sweet savour, when I bring you out from the people, and gather you out of the countries wherein ye have been scattered; and I will be sanctified in you before the heathen.
42. And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall bring you into the land of Israel, into the country for the which I lifted up mine hand to give it to your fathers. — How can this happen? When He has said, “I will not bring you,….” Saying, “I will not bring you, you cannot go there,” He says, “I shall bring you.” 137 The one who goes to Palestine is a natural Jew. So, who came for the lost tribes of Israel? The British government came. It went to China, it went to Indo-china, went everywhere and brought them into the love of Jesus Christ. That is why the Lord blessed the British government. Two thousand years, the sceptre never left Judah. What does it mean? Wherever there was a king who was ruling, he belonged to the Zerah tribe.
The Pharez tribe went passive; they went to ‘satvigam’. In that only, Buddha and all come. 138 You know, many times in the Bible,… You must read the Bible, the answer is in the Bible. Job belonged to Issachar’s tribe. He is from the east. So from the tabernacle we can know which tribe went which side.
So, north: Germany and all in the north. Dan tribe is in the north. What did he do wherever he went? He named every place, ‘don, din, don’ – ‘Denmark, London.’ Wherever he goes, he names his father’s name as ‘dan, dan, dan’. From that we can find out where this tribe went. 43. And there shall ye remember your ways, and all your doings, wherein ye have been defiled; and ye shall lothe yourselves in your own sight for all your evils that ye have committed. — Then only he will lothe himself saying, “O, we did so much of wrong things.” Saying, “I will not bring you there,” where does He do all these? He takes them in glory. After taking them, from there He comes in glory, because he does not have any property in the earth; he has left everything. When he follows the word only Canaan is promised. 142 Judah, Benjamin and all are people who are always with the King. What did he say out of zeal? “I served you so much; but You have been unfaithful to us.”
Who? To God he says. “You lost our kingdom. So hereafter we don’t want You. The day I go, I will serve the stone and sand.” Even while telling like that, he worshipped ‘thathuvams’ only, by not making Him get angry; and he did not worship the real animals. Even in that he didn’t give up. 143 He said, “We will see whether You can punish us or not. We will worship that. We will worship stone, we will worship sand; but for You to punish us, there we have kept a hurdle.” What? Worshipping the ‘thathuvams’, he has put five, six hands. You cannot find an animal like this. We will put four heads and a man like an elephant.
Show us where anything like that is. You told us only not to worship the creatures of this world. Show us an animal like this. Show us an animal with such pot belly and two legs. We will see how You can punish us.” 144 Because of this, God could not punish these people. And He said: “Get lost; you just go worshipping that. But even then, don’t defile My name.” So what does it mean? All these Hindus are not worshipping what?
They are not worshipping the idols. It is ungodliness. That is, they have separated a little from His love; and that is why this anger. 145 Keeping this image, he’ll say, “O, my Lord God,” and He will get angry. But that is the Lord God; with the same features only he has made that. But what do they do? “This is our Lord God. You just keep quiet.” This is tit for tat. He could not catch them; and these people also, they made it in such a way that He could not catch them.
146 What did the others do? All the other house of Israel, they will join with anything. But these people are only for the king. They know the royal line is not in the west. They know that the royal line is in the east. Even today, the Jewish song is, “Look to the East.” 147 So they all came and stayed in India: “One day the King will come; you follow Him.” So when the name was revealed, what did He do? “You worship anything. You can worship in whatever manner you like. But only thing is, don’t bring a bad name to My name.”
So, in the name everything unites. When that revelation comes, when the power comes, he will leave everything. All ungodliness getaway in a single day. 148 But, where will He not take them? “Brother, you do not have Palestine.” But we come to Palestine only.
Why? When you come from there, immediately what does he do? When they see it, “O, from somewhere it is coming; it is a group from somewhere; and humans are coming,” – this is the woman which He married.
Everybody come and land there. They are heavenly people; we are earthly people. 149 Everything comes where? In the millennium, the new Jerusalem comes down. In that, from Abraham, from Adam, all are there; even the bride is there.
Everybody come there and land. They don’t have any connection with the earth; but they are rulers. Into whose hands does He leave this world? He leaves it to the saints. And when the saints rule the world, they are subject to the King and the queen. So that’s a great day. 150 So now we can see here, we come to Palestine not through this way but through…
So hereafter what can you worship? You can worship any idol, you can do whatever you like, and nobody is going to question you any more. But don’t defile that name. For that He punishes. So, many Hindus come today. Where did the bride get attached? Because she got attached with the blood she goes there. Revelations 14:9. And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads. 2. And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: 3. And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, — What is the meaning of ‘new song’? A new revelation. Because they knew the name, they sing a song. Where does this happen? It is not on the earth; in heaven. Don’t forget that. And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.
— That is redemption and not salvation. These lakh and forty four thousand, He redeemed them like the bride and brought them where? To heaven. 4. These are they which were not defiled with women; — They do not belong to any denomination, any religion. 4b. for they are virgins. 4c. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. — If He is in heaven they will be in heaven; if He is down here, they will be here down. They are the Benjamin, Judah and Levites. 4d. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. — Bride is not from the earth; she is for heavenly. Even the people among men, they take the firstfruits. 5. And in their mouth was found no guile: — No guile means what does it mean? They are saved people. They have no guile. 5b. for they are without fault before the throne of God. — That means, they are having the Righteousness of God. This will happen in a second. When they hear the voice, they will come running. Here it will not be delayed fourteen years like how it happened there. Here they will hear the voice and come straight away. Don’t think that we are going. This thing will come in one day. But here turn to Revelation 7th chapter. This is what is happening in the earth. This is happening on the earth.
1. And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. 2. And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: — The One who is above is the living God. But the one who is here is the one who has His seal. This is not the same person. 2b. and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, 3. Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. 4. And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel. These are the Jews. But that is not like that. They are the tribe of Judah who are mixed up among the Hindus. They won’t go to Palestine. Where does this happen? The pure Judah who obey the commandment of God, it is for them. 5. Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand. 6. Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand. 7. Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand.
8. Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.
9. After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; 10. And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
11. And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,
12. Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
13. And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? 14. And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. — So you can understand here,
Dan tribe is not there, Ephraim is not there. He destroyed both of them because they worshipped idols. These are real Jews. Then there are lot of martyrs. And when the two witnesses come, they all come to the truth.
(Side change.) 163 ….The important people died as martyrs. And when the two witnesses go up, they all get life. That is the multitude. And they, they are the first resurrection. You know, sleeping saints are different from dead saints.
When Jesus came at the crucifixion, it was not resurrection. That is, when the grave opened, this fellow thought that everybody came out of their graves. But it doesn’t say. Jesus took them to Paradise. They are called sleeping saints. What is the meaning? There is a little Spirit of the Lord, so, they are sleeping; they have life. 164 The dead people rising is only people who don’t have the Spirit of the Lord. The people who rise up when the two witnesses come is the first resurrection. If this is the first resurrection, then how could have been there a resurrection before? Why Jesus cried in front of Lazarus?
165 Before He could raise him up, He had to take his Spirit of the Lord back, and then he had to die. He was not dead because he was a sleeping saint. So He had to take the Spirit back, so He cried. Then He said, “Now Lazarus is dead.” Then to raise him again, He had to get his life back and then take it. 166 So, if you read the Bible, the opportunity given to the bride is great. She is created before the foundation of the world. The lakh and forty four thousand having the Father’s name, they are taken.
Whose name do they know? They know the name of the Father. That is why most of the Hindus are hidden there, because they know the name of the Father. That is why he is telling ‘Lahari, Lahari’. 167 But these lakh and forty four thousand, they are not redeemed from the earth, they sing only salvation songs. Then this lakh and forty four thousand, they are sealed with the Holy Ghost. And they, they are the earthly people who serve in the outer. When the heavenly Jerusalem comes, these people come to the outer.
Those saints who died, they are in the inner. The bride is in the holy of holies in Christ Jesus. 168 And Moses was the servant in the temple. But He was the son – Christ. So these two, he came as a servant; but This comes as the son. All inside is the bride, the bride tree. Then in the outer comes the people who are saved from the earth. That’s the lakh and forty four thousand.
169 Then the nations are there in different places; they serve the Lord in their own way, because they got the revelation. They know the name. So they are not converted from their religion to our religion. They understand God and worship with an understanding. 170 So the whole world, for thousand years,… Now soon the satan will be bound. Before that anti-christ has to come. And we have to be taken in glory. Then the Bridegroom slips down to the earth to take vengeance on the earth. Then the bride won’t be here in the earth.
171 It’s a single handed fight. And there, all those who are in tribulation, then they get a revelation. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. But the bride escapes all that. So now, we must understand the message. So God bless you. 172 This finishes the age of the bride. You have become the wife now; and get ready. God told you are ready, so I believe that. So allow Him to deal with you and take away all unnecessary things. But be careful that you don’t bring a bad name to His name. And that will not be forgiven for you. So be careful. So let us thank God.
173 Now He is dealing with this lakh and forty four thousand. I don’t know what He is going to do. Branham’s tent ministry is coming now, to win the lakh and forty four thousand. They will change in one day. He will cut short the work. Don’t delay the days thinking of that and saying, “It is being delayed.” 174 Door is closed now. Now only the covenant. Don’t go and tell anybody, to any Hindu: “Convert to religion and take baptism.” Hereafter never tell that. We don’t want that. You see, even the worldly governments are changing according to that. Now don’t go and tell him to convert to another religion. You say: “Hey, don’t leave your religion; but know that name. Get the peace and Spirit of the Lord, and do what God says.” He won’t leave that. Why? He will be always with the King. 175 The Judah tribe will never leave the King, they never left for two thousand years. The Pharez tribe will never leave the place where King will come. That is why they came along Babylon, they came with Daniel, came with Mordecai, and for so many years they are sitting here in India straightaway. When that comes, then you will see the might of the Judah tribe. They will never go for money. They are Hindus. Why is he standing zealously? The fellow who stands with a zeal against God because of anger against Him, when he accepts God, he will not leave that zeal. So may God bless us. 176 You be ready. So, that chapter is closed now. He has told me: “Tear away all the addresses. Hereafter there is no America for you; you need not go.” So, now the trouble will come there also. And bride will be ready for glorification. And, they are ready. Are you ready?
If you don’t go, don’t blame me. I wish that you all should go. Which is important today? Not your denominational things. Jesus scattered, Christ gathers. And, that Name will gather you. May God bless you. Let us all get up. Let us finish praising God.
