Just because that you accepted Christ as personal Saviour, that doesn't mean that you're going in the rapture

114-52 Now, there'll be... The first that'll take place will be the--the coming of the Bride. There will be people in the world... I... You might different a little with this, but listen close. Just because that you accepted Christ as personal Saviour, that doesn't mean that you're going in the rapture. That's for the elect, that'll go in the rapture. There'll be a remnant left here on earth that'll go through the persecution and the great tribulation. The church will be caught up in the rapture.

115-53 How many women here doesn't know that when you going to cut a piece of goods you lay the goods out like this, and lay your pattern on it like this, and you cut the goods just according to the pattern. Is that right? And the rest of the goods is just the same kind of goods that's in the pattern. Is that right? But this is the kind you take. You might lay that away for farther use, but the--the goods that you cut out of...
Now, who places the pattern? God by election. Amen. God by election places the pattern. He said, "Now, I have chosen before the foundation of the world... I place these..." Why, Jesus told the disciples that He was with them, and He had chose them, and knew them before the foundation of the world was ever laid. Is that right? So God places the pattern. Now, there'll be an elect that'll go in the rapture. And there'll be a group of people that's good, upright, holy living, God saved people, that will not be in the rapture; and they'll come up in the second resurrection, because...

115-55 Oh, I--I hope you won't get angry with me if I just make something real plain here to you. See? Don't do it. I--I've got to say it, because I--just keeps choking to me (You see?) to say it. Look. Now, look. Then I'm going to say this: There's a people that believe in justification by faith (See?), and they live a good, clean, holy life; they believe in sanctification too. Repeat...
Look at Judas Iscariot. Judas Iscariot was justified when he believed on the Lord Jesus Christ and accepted Him as his personal Saviour: Judas Iscariot. Judas Iscariot was sanctified in John 17:17 and was given power in Matthew 10 to go out and cast out devils. And Judas Iscariot come back, after he healed the sick and cast out devils, and he come back rejoicing and shouting just as much as any good holy-roller you ever seen. Is that right? The Bible said so. But when he come to Pentecost, he showed his colors. Now, watch that--that spirit.

115-57 There's people in the world today, good Christian people that'll believe in justification, many of them, thousands, millions that believe in justification. But they'll have nothing to do with sanctification. We'd say that's Presbyterian, Episcopalian, and so forth. They believe in justification; preach it. And it's good; they're right.
But now, the--the Nazarenes, Pilgrim Holiness, Free Methodists move up into sanctification. They believe in sanctification. Correctly. They're right. And they get victory, and shout, and praise the Lord. They're correct; they're right. But speak to either one of them about the baptism of the Holy Ghost, and the power, and signs, and wonders, they'll show their color right there. Say, "I don't want none of that. I don't believe..." Well, even to my dear Nazarene people, believes that a man speaks with tongues is of the devil. And, brother, you do that, you...

116-59 Why, they put Dr. Reedhead out of the Sudan Missions, the president of it, because that he spoke with tongues. Said, "We can't have it. "
I said, "You can't preach like Paul then. You can't accept Paul's Gospel, for Paul said, 'Forbid not to speak with tongues.'" That's right. But they--they say it's of the devil. They've seen a lot of counterfeits and carry it all over there. See? But there is a justified and sanctified church, but deny that the baptism of the Holy Ghost is a different work from sanctification. But It is--it is a different work. Sure it is.

116-61 There was three elements came from Christ's body. And the same elements came from His body is what we use to go into His Body. There was water (Is that right?), Blood (Is that right?), and Spirit. And Jesus--and the Scripture said, "There are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. These three are One; they are One. But there's three that bear record in earth; they're not one," he said, "but they agree as one: water, Blood, and spirit." Is that right?
Now, you cannot have the Father without having the Son. You can't have the Son without having the Holy Ghost, because--but you can be justified without being sanctified. And you can be both justified and sanctified and still not have the baptism of the Holy Ghost. See? That's true. That's Scripture. "These three," he said, "that bear record in earth, water, Blood, and spirit; and they agree in one." See? They are not one, but they agree in one, because it's the same Spirit with a measure. God gives us the Spirit in measure.
