« 440 † Now, notice. One day she said to me; she said, "Bill," she said, "I just want to ask you a question about heaven."
I said, "All right, Meda, what is it?"
She said, "You know I love you." I said, "Yeah." It was right after this happened up here.
She said, "You know that Hope loved you too."
And I said, "Yeah."
And she said, "Now," she said, "I don't think I would be jealous," she said, "but Hope was." And she said, "Now, when we get to heaven... And you said you seen her there."
I said, "She was there; I seen her. I seen her twice there. She's there; she's waiting for me to come; so's the--so's Sharon. I seen her just the same I'm looking at you. I seen her there." And I said...
She said, "Well, now, when we get over there," said, "which one is going to be your wife?"
I said, "Both of you. There won't be any (See?), yet both of you'd be."
She said, "I can't understand it."
And I said, "Now, honey, set down, let me explain something to you." I said, "Now, I know you love me, and you know how I love you, in respects and honor. Now, for instance, what if I dressed up, went downtown and some little prostitute, real pretty, and, come and throw her arms around me and say, "Oh, Brother Branham, I sure love you." Started putting her arms around me, hugging me. What'd you think?"
She said, "I don't think I'd like that very well."
And I said, "I want to ask you something. Do you... Who do you love the best, if it had to be a showdown: me or the Lord Jesus?" (Now, this is family talking.)
And she said, "The Lord Jesus." Said, "Yes, Bill, as much as I love you, but before I would give Him up, I'd give you up."
I said, "Thank you, honey. I'm glad to hear you say that now." I said, "Now, what if that same little woman would come up to Jesus and throw her arms around Him, say, 'Jesus, I love You'; what would you think about that?"
She said, "I'd enjoy that."
See, it changes from phileo to agapao. See? It's a higher love. See? And there's no such thing as husband and wife as--as to raise children; it's all gone.
63-0323 THE.SIXTH.SEAL_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN SATURDAY_
« 450 † The--the female and male sex, the--the glands are all... They're all the same there. See? There's none of it no more. See? There's no sex glands at all, not at all. See? You're just... Just--just think of yourself without a sex gland. The reason they were put in us is to repopulate the earth. You see? But there, there won't be any there. There won't be neither male nor female glands; it's gone. But the statue of the art of God will be there. That's exactly right. But we'll be truly genuine, no--no phileo at all, all agapao. See?
Therefore, a wife would be no more than just some lovely something that's--that's yours and she--and you belong to each other. There's no such thing as husband... No, no, there's not even...
See, the phileo part's not even there at all. See, there can't be anything like a jealousy. There's nothing to be jealous about. There ain't no such a thing there. You never know such a thing as that (See?), and just a lovely young men and young women to live.
And then after, I--she said, "I see it now, Bill."
I said, "Yes."
