39. Fire's going to fall. [Bride’s getting ready.]
INVISIBLE UNION OF THE BRIDE. SHREVEPORT, LA 65-1125
44-5 Now, before closing: One time I was up in Glacier National Park. We heard all day long that they had--they had a "glacier of fire" that was going to fall at night. So the people was busy all day long getting that thing ready, because they was going to pour that fire out that night. They put a liquid... fire falls like a great glacier of water, looked like a rainbow almost when it comes out of that fire, falling out of this glacier. All around through the park, wife and I, and children, walked around through the day; we wanted to stay to see that fire exhibition. So it--it--it was promised us that we would see it, we'd witness it again. They said they have it ever... through the summer seasons and so forth. I said, "Well, will we be able to see it?"
Said, "We promised it tonight. We're promised that." Said, "They're up there getting it ready now."
After all I had been made ready for the event... That's what's taking place right now. All's being made ready for the event: a church being pulled out for His Name's sake, taking His Bride out from amongst the world, these denominations, all the world, and the filth, and things of the world.
And everybody... The event was made ready. Everybody was standing out, and said. "Now, just keep watching, right on top the mountain there."
That's the way it's always come. That's the way it's to come this time. That's the way it always come, not through a denomination. Never did God use a denomination: never. The reformer goes forth. He gets the Word of the Lord, and then when he dies, they build a denomination out of it. That's what the Pentecostals and all did. When the new issues and everything... That's just the way everything come out. A new word added, then they build a church out of it, made a denomination, separated theirselves. It had to be that way. That... You can't--you can't beat nature. Nature falls in the same routine all the time: stalk, leaf, tassel, so forth, shuck, then the wheat.
Now, notice. All was ready. Everything had been kindled and made ready. And everybody was standing out. I had my head sticking up, my arm around my wife; we was looking. The children standing there, all were looking up like that. My, it was something, 'cause we was expecting it. It was promised to us. Amen.
The Word promises this. "It shall come to pass before the great and terrible day of the Lord shall come, behold I will send unto you Elijah the prophet. He shall turn the hearts of the children back to the fathers."
"And it shall come to pass in the last days, I'll pour out my Spirit from on high. The former and latter rain shall come together in the last days."
All these promises, through the Scriptures, has been given. We're looking upward, watching at the true Bride across the nation this hour, looking up.
Church, He's coming one of these days. Just as sure as He come the first time, He's coming again. Get everything ready. Separate yourself from shuck; lay before the sun. Keep looking up. Be under expectation.
Then this man, standing right there by the side of me, said, "Let the fire fall."
Here it comes pouring down across that mountain, a glacier of fire and blazes a licking, a sight to behold.
Brother, let's get all things ready, for one of these days, the fire's going to fall. We're going up. Now, let's get ready for the fire-falling time.
We're in the last days. We all know that. And we're ready for the coming of the Lord. The thing to do is separate yourself from all sin. Separate yourself from anything that pertains to the world. Don't love the world or the things of the world. Let no man, by his creed, deceive you. You stay right straight in the promise of God, the Word of God; and that Word, if It's the Word, for this day, God vindicates It so. If He doesn't, it's not the Word for this day. The Word that fell on the day of Pentecost will not work this day. No, sir, that was for Pentecost. This is for the Bride: going home of the Bride. We got something different. The Pentecostals represented that again. We're in the Bride age. No more than the Word of Noah would worked in the days of Moses. No more than Moses' law would've worked in the time of Paul, here. He tried to tell them, "You're dead to that. And you cannot have that."
46-3 Church, you, who I'm speaking to tonight across the nation, if you've separated yourself from denomination and all the filth and things of this world, and all those things that keeps you in manmade creeds, and orders, and things like that, you separated yourself, look up. Get ready. The fire's going to fall one of these days. God's going to let Him come, in a sight to behold. Would you be ready when He comes? Would you be ready to go up with Him when He comes? The secret rapture of the supernatural Bride... She'll be made from mortal to immortality; be changed in a moment, in a twinkling of an eye. We which are alive and remain shall not prevent them which are asleep.
