380. Brother Branham, who will populate the earth outside the Heavenly City?
381. Explain about each person’s angel who abides with them from birth unto death. Very good question.
48 I hate to pass these by; they’re good questions. And I want my–my children to know these things. See? “Now, who will populate the earth outside of the City?” Outside, it will be the redeemed that will populate the earth, outside the City, but they will not be the elected and called Bride. The Bride will live inside the Kingdom with the King.
On the outside will be the kings of the earth that labor and bring their toils, bring their…not toil, but bring their fruits into the City. And the doors will not be closed by night.
49 Now, on…Now, this Light on top of the mountain will not lighten the whole world, It’ll only lighten the City. But It can be seen in the distance of thousands of miles maybe; but It won’t lighten the earth, because the Bible said, in the New World, that from one Sabbath to another and from one–from one new moon to the other (you see?) will the people come up before the Lord unto Zion, up to the City to worship.
50 And now, they will be outside the City, not the Bride, but the people that come up in the second resurrection that will be tillers of the soil, just like Adam was, and so forth, and carers of the garden. But the King and Queen will remain in the City.
51 “Explain about each person’s angel who abides with them from birth.” Now, if you notice…Now, this is pretty deep. Now, I never…I just picked it up. Now, the…Part of it’s wrote in type and the other one is with a pencil–or pen.
52 Now, there is an Angel, but this Angel of the Lord that are encamped about those that fear them…that fears Him. See? Now, it isn’t promised that sinners has Angels, it’s only the redeemed has Angels. Did you know that? The Angels of the Lord encamp about those that fear Him.
53 Now, Angels are messengers. I want you to notice It’s so perfect, and it’ll prove predestination to you. See?
54 Now, when a little baby is being formed under the mother’s heart…And you little children that understand these things, see, the Lord gave you to mother. And she carried you under her heart, because you’re close to her heart. And then, one day the Lord came down and delivered you from mother’s heart, from away from her heart, but you’ll always be in her heart.
56 Now, while this little body is being formed, little natural body being formed in the mother, there is a spiritual body of the earth ready to receive this natural body as soon as it is born.
Now, the baby is born with live muscles, a beating heart, but no breath of life in it. It’s muscles twitching…See? Then, see, if there was something different from that, if there wasn’t a spirit that had to come into it later, then our breath could leave us, and we would breathe no more and still be alive. But when this body doesn’t receive oxygen from the…or breath (intake and outtake of our lungs), then we’re dead.
56 Now, but when the mother…The little baby is dropped to the earth from the mother’s heart. “Dropped,” you understand what I am saying, what way I’m…the reason I’m saying it this way. When the little, baby is dropped, what happens? As soon as it comes forth, if it doesn’t start crying, the doctor, midwife, or whatever, will spank it [Brother Branham claps his hands–Ed.], stretch it. It’s got to have a shock, and what happens?
57 Notice, a mother, she can be ever so mean and cruel, but just before that baby’s born, there’s a certain kindness that sets in. Did you ever notice a mother when she’s to be mother? There’s something sweet about her; she always takes on that sweetness.
It’s because that that little angel, little spirit, a little messenger to this little tabernacle is ready to come forth into the world. And then, when this little angel comes into the body (that’s a little angel of the earth, a spirit that’s ordained of God to take this body), then that baby has to have a choice. It makes its decision. Then when this takes place, then, you see, the Angel of the Lord now comes in here, which is a spiritual body, that Eternal.
58 This is a dying spirit in a dying body; but now, you can’t be in two bodies at one time, but there can be two natures in you at one time. Now, the nature of the Spirit of the Lord…When you’re borned again, you’re not borned of physical, like the baby was; but what’s happened, the spiritual birth has come to you. And while this spiritual birth is growing into your heart, of God, there is a physical or a celestial body growing to receive that spirit. And when the life leaves this body, it goes to that body. Just as when the body is presented to the earth, the spirit comes in, and when the spirit goes out of the body, there is a body waiting. “For we know that after this earthly tabernacle be dissolved, we have one already waiting.” See? That’s it, the spiritual body of the people.
Now, these must be a…There’s a group of them here, looks to be at least ten or fifteen. It’s all wrote out on paper, same kind of paper, typewriting, and so forth. I’ll try to get to them as quick as possible. We can get out in…as quick as can.
