The rapture and the end of Gentiles Dispensation

WHAT IS THE BRIDE TREE & WHAT'S THE MEANING OF IT BEING EATEN BY AN INSECT?

WHAT IS THE BRIDE TREE & WHAT'S THE MEANING OF IT BEING EATEN BY AN INSECT?

Bro Branham was asked a question by a sister about the rapture and the end of gentiles dispensation and what takes place after the opening of the seven seals which He answered plainly  and it’s important to know the truth today especially when we have so many theories, divisions and versions of the rapture and the second coming of Christ in our midst as believers

247. Brother Branham, here is a question that’s been sort of puzzling to several of us here. One—on—on (pardon me) on some tapes you speak only of the Jews being saved after the Bride is raptured. (And it’s a line across.) Please explain fully about the Gentiles that don’t go in the Rapture. I thought you said that the Gentiles that were left went through the Tribulation and gave their lives for a testimony of Jesus. When He returns from the Gentiles to the Jews…when He turns from the Gentiles to the Jews, then there isn’t any more chance for the Gentiles being saved, just the Gentiles who have been saved, but not received their last day Truth will go in the Tribulation Period and then be saved in the end. Is this right? Please explain, because you said that there would be just a small number go in the Rapture. What about the people that believed in the Lord—believes in the Lord now and the way…and don’t believe the way you preach for this end-time-day Message? Will they be saved? And then the sister signed her name.

145 Now, very good question. Now, the first place, the confusion is, is what I have said about the Gentile’s days be done when the tribulation…in the tribulation. Now, I do not see the Gentiles in the Bible…The Gentile Bride, Bride, not the Gentile church now, the Gentile church will go through the Tribulation Period (see?), but not for their…See, the Bride is the Elected; They go through nothing but the Rapture. They’re just changed and taken out of the world. See? Now, I’ll explain that in a further question here, bringing it from Luther up, and you’ll see then what it means; it’s the maturing of the Body. See?

146 Now notice. Now, the Jews that’s left is the one who will be preached to by the two prophets, Elijah and Moses.

147 Now, this is my own thoughts, minister brethren, in my own way that I feel the Holy Spirit has revealed to me.

148 Now, the next thing is to happen is the Jewish, or, the Gentile, elected Bride to be caught up with the rest of the Gentile, elected Bride that’s been down through the ages, be caught up in the Presence of Christ in the heavens. The dead raises; the ones that’s alive and remain is changed; and they’re caught up together in the air to meet the Lord. Then, because…

149 After the Wedding ceremony in Glory, Jesus, after that has caught up into the skies, Jesus returns onto the earth and makes Hisself known to His people, in the type like Joseph made hisself known to his brothers. And his wife, no Gentile was present, nobody but Joseph alone, when he made hisself known to his brethren. All understand that now?

150 He sent…Even his wife was in the palace, the type that the Bride will be in the palace in Glory at that time. Then Jesus makes Hisself known to the Jews (see?) after the Wedding ceremony, the three-and-a-half years, and—and—and Jacob’s trouble, that three-and-a-half years, the end of the seventieth week of Daniel. The Messiah’s to be cut off in the midst of the…And He prophesied three-and-a-half years and was cut off. Then there’s three-and-a-half years left yet for their prophets, Moses and Elijah, and then at the end of their seventy days as yet determined upon the people, as Daniel said; then at the end of that seventy days, Jesus is to make Hisself known to them. He’s that Prince that should come to the Jews. See?

151 Now, and then at that time…See, the Gentile Bride is in Heaven, and the sleeping virgin, the Gentile virgin, is not to be saved during that time; she’s already been saved, but has been rejected in the Bride. And she only goes through the Tribulation Period for the time of purification, because she has rejected Christ, the Word, for her purification. Then she has to suffer for her deeds, but the Bride who has become the Word, a complete atonement was made of Christ, ’cause He is the Word. That body was rended, and when that body was rended, the Bride was in that body, because It’s all the Word! Amen! You see it?

152 When Jesus suffered in that body, He suffered…Cause a man and a woman are one person. Eve was taken out of Adam, and the Church…What happened? God opened up the side of—of Adam and took out of there a helpmate, the bride. And God opened up the side of Jesus at Calvary and took out the Bride. See? And when Jesus died at Calvary…Remember, the Bride was not taken from the body until the body was dead. He had already died, and they was going to break His legs. And the prophet said, “There’ll not be one bone broken.” So they done drawed back the hammer to break a leg, and a man went up with a spear and pushed it through His heart; and water and Blood came forth; He was already dead. She was already redeemed in the body by His death, so there’s no more suffering Tribulation Period for the Bride. See? She goes in. But the Gentile church that just believe on Him and take the denominational creeds and so forth, and still…

153 Like this poor person said: “My husband and son, they still love the things of the world and things like that…” See, they haven’t accepted that redeeming, for when you do, it cleanses you automatically. “He that’s borned of God does not commit sin.” There’s no desire, nothing in him for the things of the world.

154 Jesus said, “He that loves the world (Kosmos now), or the things of the world, the love of God’s not even in him.” He’s not in love with the Groom. See? Therefore, she has to pay that penalty, and not…She’s not saved during that time; she’s saved now from eternal death; but she will have to go through the Tribulation Period for the purification. See what I mean? Now, now, there, I believe that settles that question.

155 Let’s see, there’s something else here.

Please explain, because you said that there would be just a small number go in the Rapture.

That is these on the earth that’s going to be changed. Jesus said, “Strait is the gate and narrow is the way, but few there’ll be that find it.”

What about the people that believe in the Lord now and don’t…and not the way you preach (They don’t have to believe this. They don’t have to believe the way I preach it. See? Don’t have to believe that.) …for the last day Message. Will they be saved?

156 Yes, if they believe the Lord. See? And if they—if they disagree and say, “I don’t believe He’s the Word. I don’t believe that this is right. I don’t believe in the baptism of the Holy Ghost,” that shows where they’re headed for, the Tribulation Period. But those who can accept the Word in Its fullness, not me preaching It, because It’s the Bible says so. Those who accept that is free, because they…the Word’s already been judged.

157 Now, could a righteous Judge judge a man twice for anything if the penalty’s been paid? If I was in the pawnshop, and you come by and said, “I’m going to redeem him”; and you went in and paid the price for my redemption (and that’s my penalty of being in the pawnshop), and you pay my redemption, then how can the pawnbroker claim me again? Unless I sold out again. There you are. When I rejected the Fullness of the Word, then I go right back in the pawnshop again. See, see? Then fight my way out then, if I can. But He redeemed me. All right. I hope that that…I’m—just got so many here I want to get these that…[End of first side of tape. Second side begins with part of question missing—Ed.]
