HIGH DENSITY LIVING IN CHINA

 

 

 “ You say,

"Preacher, you mean to tell me you doubt a dozen out of this millions and four billion people in the world?"

 I doubt whether there'll be a dozen that'll make the rapture.

Think of it.

I'm telling you what Jesus said here in the Gospel.

China’s "One Child" Policy

One of the most serious social and economic problems that faced China in the ‘60s and ‘70s was population growth. Until the 1970s the Chinese government regarded a growing population as a catalyst for bringing about

swift economic development.

By 1963, the average number of children born to a Chinese woman was 7.5.

However, in 1979, after years of encouraging reproduction, the Chinese government began to view population growth differently.

With one-fifth of the world’s population, but only seven percent of the world’s arable land, continuing strong population growth would bring about hardships, extreme poverty, and famine.

 As a result, the government

implemented a policy known today as the "One Child" policy.

 The policy was adopted to ensure that China,

a country that has historically been prone to severe flooding and famine,

would be able to feed its people.

 

1979 One child policy introduced.

Introduced to curb China's population growth rate, this policy limited most families in towns and cities to just one child.

REVELATION 6:15-17

  15    And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;

  16    And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:

  17    For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?    

WHAT A PRAYER?

SEVEN CLASSES OF MEN ARE DESTINED TO SEE 

1. The kings of the earth.

 2. The great men.

3.  The rich men.

 4. The chief captains.

5. The mighty men.

6. Every bondman.

 7. Every free man.

AS REALITY: THE “DAY OF JUDGMENT”.

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

  O God,

 Let Your people realize that soon the Angel shall set foot upon the land and sea

and

raise up His hands and say,

"Time shall be no more."

Then O, what a weeping and wailing,

When the lost ones are told of their fate;

They'll cry to the rocks and the mountains,

They'll pray, but the prayer is too late.

2

END.TIME.EVANGELISM.title  JEFF.IN  V-10 N-5  62-0603

O God,

then it's too late for the rest of them,

The rapture has come.

The judgment will strike the earth;

 

3

GOD.IN.SIMPLICITY.title  JEFF.IN  63-0317M

The rapture,

Then judgments will strike:

 sin, plagues, sickness, and everything.

 The people will cry for death to take them when the judgment...

"Lord, why is this judgment upon us when You said that there'd be a rapture first?"

He will say,

"It's already come, and you didn't know it.":

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

  THUS SAITH THE LORD,

The hour is here;

Judgments will start into the earth.

 

5

GOD.IN.SIMPLICITY.title  JEFF.IN  63-0317M

Why don't believers believe the simple signs of

His coming?

 

6

EVENING.MESSENGER.title  MESA.AZ  V-8 N-5  63-0116

The oldest civilization we have is China.

And civilization has traveled from east to west, because it's followed the sun.

And now,

we have got all the way to the west coast.

If we go any further, we're back east again.

 See?

 So we're at the end of the road.

[CHINA IS A MARKER – A TOKEN – A SIGN POST.]

7

FLASHING.RED.LIGHT.title  JEFF.IN  V-5 N-4  63-0623E

  And what about the

increase of population

As it was in the days of Noah?

 

8

FLASHING.RED.LIGHT.title  JEFF.IN  V-5 N-4  63-0623E

…There has never been a time in all the history that there's ever been

so many people and so quickly multiplying as we have today,

Until it's hard to get a place to stay.

 

9

FLASHING.RED.LIGHT.title  JEFF.IN  V-5 N-4  63-0623E

"Reader's Digest,"

I believe it was, that quoted that.

That there won't even be food for the people,

they're multiplying so fast.

 

1979 One child policy introduced.

Introduced to curb China's population growth rate, this policy limited most families in towns and cities to just one child.

 

10

FLASHING.RED.LIGHT.title  JEFF.IN  V-5 N-4  63-0623E

What'll happen?

Just exactly like it was in the days of Noah:

one day the door of mercy will be closed.

Then the Scripture says,

the Sanctuary becomes smokey.

That means that the Intercessor has gone from it.

 

·                        Now, watch what's come after the Seven Seals:

·                        And after those seven seals, He showed what was the truth of it.

·                        Now, listen closely, we see plainly after the Seven Seals has been opened;

·                        Now, if this sign is only to be known at the end time, then it'll have to be after the opening of those Seals. See? It's a sign of the end. That would be, when these things happens it'll be at the end time.

 

NOTE.

 

This is the end.

It's written in the skies.

It's written over the face of the earth.

It's written in every newspaper.

This is the end,

If you can read the handwriting.

 

And others are reading it and seeing the handwriting on the wall,

and yet many just ignore it, and don't even see it at all.

It's nothing to them at all; they don't notice it.

·                       And the handwriting's on the wall and can be read by the spiritual mind that believes in spiritual things, that's been born of the Spirit of God.

·                       It come in by revelation of Daniel being able to interpret the Word that was wrote on the handwriting on the wall.

·                       Lord Jesus, Thy Word is Truth. And in this troublesome hour that we're living, nation against nation, pestilence, earthquakes in many places, men's hearts failing, fear, we see the handwriting on the wall.

·                       The handwriting is on the wall of today again. They see it, but they don't recognize it.

·                       The handwriting was on the wall, and they didn't know it.

·                       And we see the handwriting on the wall, so it's very easy to prophesy and see that we're at the end time.

We see the handwriting on the wall, the earth getting nervous, the time of deliverance is at hand.

FORMER.AND.LATTER.RAIN.title  PHOENIX.AZ  60-0303

China was the oldest civilization,

Our first that we have record of.

 

12

QUEEN.OF.SHEBA.title  BEAUMONT.TX  61-0119E

Now, remember,

civilization's traveled with the sun.

The oldest civilization's the eastern civilization.

 China's the oldest civilization we know of.

 

13

MAN.THAT.CAN.TURN.ON.LIGHT.title  JEFF.IN  V-6 N-1  63-1229M

The s-u-n has traveled like S-o-n: S-o-n like s-u-n.

The church has come the same thing from the seven church ages and so forth.

Civilization's moved right on to the west,

 And

 the church has moved right on to the west.

And now, if we go any further than what we are now, we come back east again.

You leave the west coast you go right back into China, Japan, right back in again. Seven thousand miles across you go right back to the east again.

So east and west has met.

That's all of it.

We're at the end.

There's nothing left.

 

14

FAITH.ONCE.DELIVERED.TO.THE.SAINTS.title  INDNPLS.IN  57-0610

Christ will come.

He will be the judge.

 

He is the supreme Judge of the universe,

Supreme Judge of heaven and earth.

 He is God,

and nothing else but God.

15

HANDWRITING.ON.THE.WALL.title  CHICAGO.IL  V-14 N-7  58-0108

  Then there's nothing left but judgment when mercy has been spurned.

And here we are at the end of the road.

The supernatural's being done.

 It's been laughed at and made fun of.

And the last thing,

God has come in His own power,

in His own beloved Son to work through His Church,

and they say It's spiritualism,

 or,

 the Devil.

What else can be left but judgment?

 

16

BE.NOT.AFRAID.IT.IS.I.title  BLOOMINGTON.IL  61-0414

Why,

If they had only knowed who John was...

 

17

INNER.MAN.title  CHICAGO.IL  53-1212

And look at-

-at Buddha.

Buddha died twenty-three hundred years ago,

 the great religious of-

-of China.

And when he died,

 here was the things he said before he died.

 He said,

"It will come to pass before the world shall end,

that the god of love..."

 

18

INNER.MAN.title  CHICAGO.IL  53-1212

 Said,

"The god of love will send his servants,

his prophets in here,

and they'll come by a way

that they won't leave a track behind them."

 

BY AIRPLANE.

 

19

SCRIPTURAL.SIGNS.OF.THE.TIME.title  BIRMINGHAM.AL  64-0410

I've been seven times around the world.

 

“If they had only knowed who John was...”

20

DOOR.INSIDE.DOOR.title  KLAMATH.FALLS.OR  60-0711

I've preached direct or indirect to twenty or thirty million people around the world,

seven times around.

 And I--I--I know I've got to answer for that.

And I've got to be in the deepest of sincerity and know that I'm telling them the truth.

You don't realize the goodness of God.

If a person,

a sinner,

could only open their eyes

and

see how good God is.

If He could just rub a little salve on their eyes

 and

they could look around and see

how good He is...

 

“If they had only knowed who John was...”

 

21

SOULS.IN.PRISON.NOW.title  JEFF.IN.  V-2 N-22  63-1110M

Mercy was sent to them by a prophet.

They wouldn't believe it.

 God's merciful, but He sent mercy, but they wouldn't receive it.

 He always sends mercy first.

What if they would've known that sign was the end time sign?

 And when they seen all at once, salvation let up...

22

GOD.HATH.A.PROVIDED.WAY.title  JEFF.IN  56-0108

We're living in the day of the coming of the Lord.

 

23

CONFERENCE.title  SHREVEPORT.LA  60-1125

The coming of the Lord is at hand.

 

24

UNCERTAIN.SOUND.title  MIDDLETOWN.OH  61-0315

Now,

 let's not look at that too lightly.

"Oh,"

 you say,

"Brother Branham, I've--I've heard such things as that before."

I know it.

But you're going to hear it one time,

the

Last time.

 

25

SIXTH.SEAL.THE.title  JEFF.IN  63-0323

  And there they was.

They had no place to go,

no retreat.

And the Bible said here,

"They called for the--cried to the rocks and the mountains to fall on us, and hide us from the--from the face of the--of--and the wrath of the Lamb."

They'd tried to repent,

but the Lamb had come to claim His own.

 See?

 And they cried to the rocks and the mountains,

 prayed,

but their prayers were too late.

 

1. The kings of the earth.  2. The great men. 3.  The rich men.

 4. The chief captains. 5. The mighty men. 6. Every bondman.

 7. Every free man.

 

26

ONCOMING.STORM.title  PHOENIX.AZ  V-15 N-2  60-0229

You see the oncoming plagues and storms,

 that shall hit the earth, and thunders and lightnings are going to shake the heavens.

Woes are going to pass over the nation.

Men will rot in their flesh.

 Diseases will strike them the doctors knows nothing about.

 

27

GOD'S.CHOSEN.PLACE.WORSHIP.title  JEFF.IN  V-5 N-7  65-0220

She's weighed the storms.

 We've picked up in population; we're great in numbers;

we're a mighty church;

she's a great thing."

 

FLASHING.RED.LIGHT.title  JEFF.IN  V-5 N-4  63-0623E

[1963]

In India they're trying to become--to make--interrupt the human part of men and make them become sterile, that children cannot be born, because they're-

-they are in--on the increase so:

four hundred and seventy million at this time in India.

 

What is the population of India 2011?

India

The population of India is approximately 1,198,003,000.

 

But God never said anything about a

"she,"

He said,

"Him."

"Him"

Is the meeting place,

the Lamb,

not the church.

“There He is with them Angels.”

28

ASHAMED.OF.HIM.title  JEFF.IN  V-3 N-9  65-0711

He is Supreme,

and He's wigged or--or covered.

The Bible said that He changed His countenance,

or He changed Himself, en morphe. The word comes from the Greek word, "en morphe," which means "a Greek actor that plays many parts"; today he is one thing, in the next act he's something else. He was God the Father in one act; God the Son in another act; and He's God the Holy Ghost in this act.

See?

There He is;

His Word is still Supreme.

We're living in the last days.

INDICTMENT.THE.title  JEFF.IN  V-3 N-19  63-0707

Their blasphemy, which they crucify to the people the Son of God afresh.

He's the vindicated Word.

One word against It can never be forgiven. Now, what are you going to do then? Where you going to stand?

 They're condemned, just waiting the hour of God's wrath to be poured out.

He'll crumb them.

 

“Just last March, 1964,

that Good Friday earthquake of Alaska shook the whole world though it did not unbalance it.

 But God was warning by a world tremor what He will soon do on a greater scale.

He is going to blast and rock this sin-cursed world,

 my brother, my sister,

and there is only one place that can stand that shock, and that is in the fold of the Lord Jesus.”

  Notice the Scripture so accurately gives it.

Watch what this... to show the...

 them who wants to believe, them who wants to see.

 Remember

Jesus stopped in the middle of a Scripture, 'cause part of it was fulfilled then,

the rest for His Second Coming?

"To preach the acceptable year of the Lord, bind up the brokenhearted,"

and stopped;

 Not

"bring judgment to the Gentile"

 until

His Second Coming.

 

·        “For the next was to bring judgment; that would apply to His second coming,

not His first coming.”

·        “The other part, to bring judgment, it didn't apply to His first coming,

 but His second coming.”

PERSEVERANCE.title  JEFF.IN  V-10 N-3  62-0218

We got more people on the earth right now,

 is on the earth right now.

This is that wicked and adulterous generation:

 homosexuals, perversions,

 See?

 How few are the righteous;

 how many children the harlot has.
