ISRAEL.IN.THE.HOMELAND.title  JEFF.IN  IC 129-147  53-0329

And I realize that out yonder,

before every one of us is a great big black hole,

 big deep door that men go in called

death.

And I know every time that my heart beats,

I'm one beat closer there.

And I got to come down there,

Lord.

And every man and woman,

boy or girl in here has to come to that place.

 

 

HEBREWS 9:27

27    And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

 

1

HANDWRITING.ON.THE.WALL.title  JEFF.IN  56-0902

What if on your road home tonight,

 a drunken driver would crash into you, and the glass would fly across the arteries of your body,

and you'd be bleeding to death,

 and you have to stand before the judgment?

You'll be asked to give a reason.

What then?

What then? What then?

When the great Book is open, what then?

When the one that's

rejecting this message

 tonight

You'll be asked to give a reason, what then?

What then, what then?

 

2

FOURTH.SEAL.THE.title  JEFF.IN  63-0321

Don't reject God's message.

[THIRD PULL]

3

GOD'S.SERVANT.JOB.title  PHOENIX.AZ  55-0223

Some of you setting there, big and healthy,

 look like it,

might have a heart beating there,

that's

going to stop

in the next fifteen minutes, twenty.

 

4

HEALING.OF.JAIRUS.DAUGHTER.title  PHOENIX.AZ  55-0227E

  It may come before this week's over;

 'fore midnight tonight it may come.

You have no assurance.

That heart may stop beating any time.

 

5

PATMOS.VISION.title  JEFF.IN  ROJC 69-130  60-1204E

Maybe before daylight the heart will stop beating

 

(“When the great Book is open, what then?”)

 

6

ISRAEL.AT.THE.RED.SEA.1.title  JEFF.IN  IC 35-64  53-0326

"You ought to have listened to the prophets."

 

7

ISRAEL.AT.THE.RED.SEA.1.title  JEFF.IN  IC 35-64  53-0326

"You had Enoch;

you had the prophets;

you had the laws;

why didn't you listen to it?"

 

[YOU HAD THE PROPHET WILLIAM BRANHAM –WHY DID YOU NOT LISTEN?]

 

8

WHO.DO.YOU.SAY.THIS.IS?.title  PHOENIX.AZ  V-6 N-9  64-1227

Now,

 years ago,

 it was very easy when I first started out;

and the signs, and message, and preaching.

 Everywhere was a arm open,

 "Come Come. Come. Come."

 But then

(You see?),

 every genuine sign from God has a-

-a Message,

a voice

 (See?),

that follows it.

9

PRESENT.STAGE.OF.MY.MINISTRY.title  JEFF.IN  V-11 N-2  62-0908

"Preach the Word,"

that was my commission;

"stay with the Word."

And, brethren who's listening to this on tape,

I was a great guy when I come among you just healing the sick, speaking of visions, and showing things.

But when I went to tell you

the Truth about the Word,

what did you turn your back on me for?

Do you realize it's just fulfilling what the Scripture said?

 Yeah, it does that way. Now, I can hardly get in a place.

 

(“When the great Book is open, what then?”)

 

10

LOOKING.UNTO.JESUS.title  PHOENIX.AZ  V-22 N-2  64-0122

I say this with respects, but I say it to sink in.

I had more understanding, and better fellowship,

 with a bunch of African witch doctors than I did that

group of ministers that morning.

 They give more consideration to the Word of God, and asked questions, for the--that I could give them the hope that laid within me, for the hope of Eternal Life.

These ministers had no time for it at all.

Just quickly,

as soon as you'd say something,

 out they'd go.

 And so that's the way it is.

 They got their mind made up;

they just stay so long, and that's all they want to know.

 If it one Word disagreeing with any petty thing that they believe in,

 they cannot stay and listen through it.

 That's the reason they couldn't believe Jesus Christ at

 His first advent.

That's the reason they'll

miss Him

in the second.

[MINISTERS ARE DESTINED TO MISS HIM AT THE SECOND ADVENT.]

 

11

PERGAMEAN.CHURCH.AGE.title  JEFF.IN  ROJC 229-285  60-1207

The Scriptures,

 the revelation of the Scriptures is hid from the eyes of the wise and prudent,

and revealed to babes such as will learn. So let's you and I be babes and just unload our hearts, and say,

"Lord, You--You tell us, and we--we are listening."

And then catch the spiritual application.

 Now, remember that.

Words that will be said from tonight on,

catch the spiritual application,

because we're coming into a great mysterious church age.

 

12

CHRIST.REVEALED.IN.HIS.OWN.WORD.title  JEFF.IN  V-4 N-10  65-0822M

  If Einstein had only had the

spiritual application,

as he had the

--the physical application,

as he studied the laws of light and so forth,

he could've told us something.

 

(“Catch the spiritual application”)

 

13

EVENTS.MADE.CLEAR.BY.PROPHECY.title  JEFF.IN  V-12 N-3  65-0801E

Ought they not to knowed that Isaiah said in Isaiah 9:6,

 "Unto us a Child is born"?

 Ought not they to know also that the prophet Isaiah said,

"A virgin shall conceive"?

They ought to have knowed these things.

But, you see,

the thing of it was,

they were

èapplyingç

 it

somewhere way ahead.

(“That's the reason they'll miss Him in the second.”)

 

14

QUEEN.OF.SHEBA.title  KLAMATH.FALLS.OR  60-0710

But when Jesus came,

 He came exactly in the way that the Scriptures predicted He would come,

only it didn't line up with their teaching of that day.

 They had the Messiah coming...

They were watching for His second coming in the

 stead of His first advent;

that's what they was

confused on.

He was coming in power.

 They was looking for Him to take a rod of iron and rule all nations.

[THEY APPLIED THE WRONG APPLICATION]

 

15

SHEPHERD.OF.THE.SHEEPFOLD.title  CHICAGO.IL  56-0403

See, there's everything in the Bible runs in threes;

we know that.

And there's three comings of the Lord.

 The first coming is past;

 The

 second coming's the rapture when we meet Him;

and

the third coming is

 when He's coming to rule and reign a thousand years.

 

(“Catch the spiritual application”)

 

16

REVELATION.CHAPTER.ONE.title  JEFF.IN  ROJC 9-67  60-1204M

  Watch what the Scripture says here in closing.

 Oh.

Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him,...

(Now,

He's talking about the second coming,

not the rapture.)...

 

(“Catch the spiritual application”)

17

JESUS.CHRIST.THE.SAME.title  DAWSON.CREEK.BC  61-0519

And He will never come to the earth on His second coming.

 We'll

 be caught up in the air to meet Him in the air.

 We'll meet Him in the air. Is that right,

brothers?

Meet Him in the air...

 

(“Catch the spiritual application”)

 

18

FOURTH.SEAL.THE.title  JEFF.IN  63-0321

Watch Christ.

First coming, He come a mortal to bleed and die.

 Is that right?

That's His first coming.

èThe second coming is the rapture. ç

We meet Him in the skies, immortal.

 His third coming,

 He's the incarnate God (Amen. Yeah.), God Emmanuel to reign on earth.

That's right. Only three...

 

(“Catch the spiritual application”)

 

19

FROM.THAT.TIME.title  TULSA.OK  60-0331

For when Jesus comes, the rapture takes place.

 

20

PERGAMEAN.CHURCH.AGE.title  JEFF.IN  ROJC 229-285  60-1207

May the Holy Spirit give the

spiritual application

 to our hearts.

 

21

RAPTURE.THE.title  YUMA.AZ  V-5 N-14  65-1204

The true Bride of Christ

will be waiting for that

revelation of the rapture.

22

MARK.OF.THE.BEAST.title  LONG.BEACH.CA  61-0217

But when they wanted to know when the time of His return would be,

 He said,

"When you see the fig tree putting forth its buds, and all the other trees, know that the time is nigh, even at the door."

Now, the old hypocrite gets a hold of that, the old unbeliever and said,

 "That generation passed; the other generation has passed; He lied."

He didn't lie.

Because they don't have the

spiritual application

of the Word.

 

23

THIRD.SEAL.THE.title  JEFF.IN  63-0320

Now, it didn't say He'd secretly come,

 But

 the rapture will be a secret.

So if that was so secret when He come,

how much more will the rapture be unknown.

See?

 

(“Catch the spiritual application”)

 

24

COUNTDOWN.THE.title  SHREVEPORT.LA  62-1125E

Anything natural happened on earth,

God made it happen spiritually,

 bringing His church up.

[THERE IS NATURAL DEATH AND SPIRITUAL DEATH.]

 

25

VICTORY.DAY.title  SIERRA.VISTA.AZ  63-0421

When man begins to get ahold of God's binoculars here,

he--he begins to...

He looks at so much of the natural,

he fails to see the

spiritual application

that the Word gives.

 

26

ISRAEL.IN.THE.HOMELAND.title  JEFF.IN  IC 129-147  53-0329

And I realize that out yonder,

before every one of us is a great big black hole,

big deep door that men go in called

death.

 

(“He looks at so much of the natural”)

 

27

QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS.title  JEFF.IN  COD  62-0527

The church raptures

and

goes up at the 4th chapter of Revelation.

 

28

TAKING.SIDES.WITH.JESUS.title  JEFF.IN  COD  62-0601

The church goes up in the 4th chapter.

 

REVELATION 4:1

  1       After this I looked, and, behold, a door [was] opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard [was] as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.

 

(“He looks at so much of the natural,

he fails to see the

spiritual application

that the Word gives.”)

 

29

REVELATION.CHAP.FOUR.PT.1.title  JEFF.IN  ROJC 551-584  60-1231

  This Door set in heaven,

 that Door,

when he looked up he saw the Lord Jesus. Just watch the following part of it:

 that Door, the Lord Jesus.

30

REVELATION.CHAP.FOUR.PT.1.title  JEFF.IN  ROJC 551-584  60-1231

I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven:

and the first voice... I heard was... a voice of a trumpet...

Now,

the scene is changing.

John's been watching Patmos, and now he looks up.

Why?

 He sees something went on on earth here

 (these church ages),

 all down the seven church ages, and then after he got through seeing the church ages, after that, after the church ages had ceased,

he heard a voice.

 And he

looked up towards heaven

and

he seen an open Door,

and

the first voice sounded like a trumpet.

All right,

scene changed from Patmos to heaven.

 

(“Catch the spiritual application”)

 

                       

 

JOHN 10:7

  7    Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.

 

31

GOD'S.PROVIDED.WAY.title  CONNERSVILLE.IN  53-0613

The spiritual Body will go in the rapture.

 Truly.

32

REVELATION.BOOK.OF.SYMBOLS.title  JEFF.IN  V-13 N-6  56-0617

  But when the Holy Spirit comes into the heart, quickly He becomes then a

--a twofold being:

one of the earth to die;

 and one of heaven to live.

 Amen.

 In his body he's still subject to death;

 but in his soul he's passed from death unto Life.

 

(“Catch the spiritual application”)

 

33

REVELATION.BOOK.OF.SYMBOLS.title  JEFF.IN  V-13 N-6  56-0617

  And,

 John, only by the Holy-Spirit-filled heart...

Do you see?

Angelic beings associate together.

Oh,

I hope you get that, that just dropped right down, free.

 Look.

And if you've got the Holy Spirit in you,

then you're a candidate for association with the

 unseen world and the Supernatural.

 No wonder people can't believe in those things;

they've never come in contact.

They got nothing in here to believe with.

 

34

REVELATION.CHAP.FOUR.PT.1.title  JEFF.IN  ROJC 551-584  60-1231

"In the Spirit..."

 If you want to put that down to Revelation 1:10 and 13,

 "I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and I heard behind me as a voice of a trumpet and sounded like many waters. And when I turned to look, I saw One standing in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks."

Now, after He showed him all that mystery of them seven golden candlesticks (holding the seven stars, and a white wig on, and so forth, and feet like brass, and eyes like fire, the symbols), then he heard the same voice (Watch.) speaking from heaven. And he looked up and he saw an open Door (Oh.), an open Door into heaven.

How do you get in?

By Christ Jesus,

that one Door, one Way, no other way.

35

CHATAUQUA.OH  V-2 N-25  59-0812

Now,

our eternal destination

 is not altogether determined by what we see and what we hear,

but it's determined on what discernment we have

of

what we see and what we hear.

 

(“Catch the spiritual application”)

 

36

WHO.DO.YOU.SAY.THIS.IS?.title  PHOENIX.AZ  V-6 N-9  64-1227

But when it comes time that they've got to change their ideas about things,

that's when the trouble comes.

 

37

MESSIAH.THE.title  SHREVEPORT.LA  61-0117

And the message of this great messenger that'll come in this closing day in the Laodicean church Age,

 the Pentecostal Age,

 will be the one that'll take the church to the rapture.

 Exactly.

 He was raptured himself,

and he will come with the church to the rapture.

 

(“The spiritual Body will go in the rapture. Truly.”)

 

38

THIRD.SEAL.THE.title  JEFF.IN  63-0320

 Directly they'll say,

 "Well, I thought we were supposed to have a rapture and all this judgment upon the earth."

He said,

"It's already taken place, and you didn't know it."

See?

 

39

THREE.KINDS.OF.BELIEVERS.title  JEFF.IN  N-3 N-6  63-1124E

But you can also see

the raptured church making herself ready.

40

REVELATION.CHAP.FOUR.PT.1.title  JEFF.IN  ROJC 551-584  60-1231

He said,

"John, I can't talk to you down there no more,

 'cause I've left down there. I've come up higher.

 Come up here with Me."

 

41

REVELATION.CHAP.FOUR.PT.1.title  JEFF.IN  ROJC 551-584  60-1231

Before his death he was caught up in the Spirit

 

[HE WAS RAPTURED BEFORE HIS HEART STOPPED BEATING]

 

42

REVELATION.CHAP.FOUR.PT.1.title  JEFF.IN  ROJC 551-584  60-1231

  You say,

"He represented the church?"

To everyone that hears this Word,

John represented him.

 Amen

 

43

REVELATION.CHAP.FOUR.PT.1.title  JEFF.IN  ROJC 551-584  60-1231

He represented the entire church.

 

44

REVELATION.CHAP.FOUR.PT.1.title  JEFF.IN  ROJC 551-584  60-1231

"Come up hither,"

 and be caught up before the tribulation.

 

And the voice would speak back and tell you,

 "The rapture's already,

                           and                             

 you didn't know it."

 

AMEN.
