1 ... be the Word. Remember tomorrow afternoon...
[Blank.spot.on.tape-Ed.]... that right? But you know where I mean. It's
about fifty miles up the road.
In the Book of Exodus, we read tonight from the 12th chapter of Exodus
and the 12th verse and the 13th verse. I believe it'd be nice if we
stood while we read the Word, in respects to God: Exodus 12:12.
For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and I will smite
all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast;... against
all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the Lord.
And the blood shall be unto you for a token upon the house where you
are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague
shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.
3 Let's bow our heads. Father God, we pray tonight that we'll examine
ourself and see if the Blood is sufficiently and in sight. As we speak
on thy Word, may the Holy Spirit guide us. In Jesus' Name. Amen. May be
5 Our Scripture reading tonight takes us back in Exodus. Exodus is a
"outgoing" and this... We're all acquainted with the--the time. And for
the context. I'm going to take the subject of "The Token." A token,
what is a token? A token is a sign of a--that a price has been paid.
Like a railroad company or a bus fare, when they run a bus line, you go
in... Many of the cities still have it... You can, or... A ticket is a
token. If you go to a railroad company and or an airplane company and
buy a ticket, it isn't the money that you give in when you go; it's the
token, your ticket, or your little token that you--shows that you have
purchased a required price. They require a certain price, and this
price has been paid.
7 In the subject we are speaking on tonight, God's requirement for
Israel, requirement of Jehovah, was the blood of a lamb. That was His
requirement, and it was to be for a token. The token showed that the
requirement had been met, that what God had required had been met.
What the railroad requires, the token shows it's been met. Your fare is
paid. You're ready to get on the train, plane, bus, whatever it is. But
you must have the token. You can't go on without the token. Many of the
companies will not receive your cash. When you go out to the airplane,
walk out there and say, "I want to pay my ticket," you go get your
ticket first. You must have the ticket. And just the token is what you
must hold. The money itself will not work. You must have the token.
9 The life was gone out from the sacrifice. And now the blood was a
token his orders had been carried out.
That's what it was in Egypt, that dreadful night just before death
struck, the last plague. God had showed His great signs and wonders in
Egypt, His long-suffering and kindness to Pharaoh and all of his
people. He'd sent many great signs through the land. He sent them a
prophet, showed them signs and wonders, a Pillar of Fire, and all that
He had did, and yet... All that He had did, yet they would not repent.
They would not come to God. They ignored all of His signs. They ignored
His prophet. They ignored the message. They wanted their own way. So
God had been fed up with them. So He said, "I'm going to make a
separation now between those who do believe and those who do not
I think we're living in that time now, where God's making a choice. Men
will believe, or they won't believe.
12 And God required a token. And this token was an innocent lamb, that
He had substituted for death in the garden of Eden. And now, when the
lamb was killed, the blood was to be placed upon the doorpost and on
the lintel. And it was a--to show that the requirement had been carried
Oh, I think that's a great lesson for us, as we look at it. See the
believing worship, as he was identified by the token of the blood. He
had to... The believer had to get the lamb, slay the lamb, a lamb for a
house, take the blood with the hyssop, which is just a little brush
that grows up there in the country, and they (Common weeds we'd call
it.)--and had to apply the blood. It shows by the applying of the blood
with this hyssop... Hyssop represents faith. Many times people think
they have to have some supernatural faith to be a believer. It isn't.
The hyssop speaks for that, just common weeds that you could get it
anywhere, pick it up, dip it in the blood, and apply the blood.
14 The blood tonight is applied by simple faith, just not nothing
supernatural. It's right around you everywhere. Just simply like a
child, reach out and get ahold of it and apply the blood. The hyssop is
just a simple childlike faith for the believer. It isn't something out
of your reach. You don't have to reach very far to get it.
This hyssop that grows in that country, it grows out of the cracks of
the walls: a little, kind of a diamond-shaped leaf. You can pick it up
anywhere, just as--as grass, or weeds would be in--in the country here
now. Just pick it up, apply it, put it on the door.
That's the way faith is to be applied. Take faith rather, and apply the
Blood of Jesus Christ by faith to the heart's door.
This was going to separate and make the difference between those who
were going out of Egypt and those who were going to stay in Egypt and
perish with Egypt. It made the difference.
18 Strange how God always works through signs, signals, tokens, and so
forth. He always has done it. That's His way of doing anything. He
never does it outside of that. God never makes a move until He does it
in that way.
The way God starts, that's the way God finishes. He's infinite,
omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient. He needs nobody's help. He doesn't
need our interpretation. As I said last night, He doesn't need us to
interpret the Word and say what it means. He speaks what It says It'll
do. That's the interpretation. Nobody has to interpret It. When God
says, "Let it be," and it is, that's His interpretation of it.
We might say, "The days of miracles is past. There is no such a thing
as the baptism of the Holy Spirit." A man who believes it, God speaks
through him, and that's the interpretation. They got it. That's... They
know they have it, because God gives His own interpretation to His Word.
21 That's what He was requiring that night to separate the believers
from the unbelievers. The believer worshipper was identified with his
sacrifice. He must apply the blood. It wasn't take and kill the lamb,
set the blood out there somewhere, or keep it in a charger, take it
down to the neighbors. He had to apply the blood.
That's the way it is tonight. We could come and sympathize with
everything God does, that isn't what He requires. You've got to apply
it. It's not sufficient until you apply it. The blood must be applied.
That shows that you are identified. The worshipper laid his hand upon
the lamb and then killed it, identify himself with the sacrifice.
23 The same thing we do tonight, is lay our hand upon our sacrifice and
identify ourself with Him. And He is the Word. We have to be identified
only through Christ is when we're identified by the Word, because He is
the Word, always has been. In the beginning was the Word, the Word was
with God, and the Word was God. And the Word was made flesh and dwelt
among us, the same yesterday, today, and forever.
24 So much Word is allotted to each generation. God sends someone in
there and identifies that Word by His interpretation of Himself.
Creeds and things has always had the church in such a turmoil.
Everybody says, "Well, this is the way. And this is the way. And this
is what you must do." But God comes in, and steps on the scene, and
makes what He said come to pass. That's the interpretation. Needs
nobody to tell. Not sinful men, or organizations, or any great big
denomination, or anything else, to interpret the Word; some bishop,
archbishop, pope or something. That isn't it; God does His own
interpreting. When He promised it, He does it.
As I've said many times... When He said, "Let there be light," and
there was light, that's the interpretation. It doesn't need any more
to--anything else to try to interpret it. God interprets itself.
27 This blood being applied and identified... Worshipper identified
himself with the blood by applying it in his own house, over the door,
where he could not go out or come in without being recognized by the
blood. A very perfect type of, today, of the Blood of Jesus Christ.
Then the blood was a token of identification. Christ is a token of the
identification of a believer today.
Animal life... Them days the reason they had to apply the chemical
blood, take it upon hyssop, place it upon the doorpost and the lintel,
is because the animal... The worshipper that put his hands and
identified himself with the animal... The life that was in the animal
could not return back upon the worshipper, because the animal doesn't
have a soul. He doesn't better hisself at all.
29 We find out today that we men, although fallen, in this fallen
state, we build our houses better, we buy--build a better car. We take
what God has created, pervert it, and turn it into something to help
ourself. It goes to show that we are sons of God in our fallen estate,
yet we have a soul. We cannot create like God did; but we can take what
He created and make a similar creation out of what He's already created.
An animal doesn't do that. The dog still lives in the same way he
lived. The bird still builds a nest. And the fish has his spawning
grounds. There's no difference, yet because (Why?) they doesn't--don't
have a soul. But proves that man is in the image of his Creator.
Therefore, that when the animal died, and the blood was broken, the
cell was broken, the life is in the blood cell. And when the blood cell
was broken, the blood broken up, the worshipper had to take the
chemistry of the blood, and put it upon the door, so it could be seen
with the literal eye. Because the life that was in the animal could not
come back upon the man, not having a soul. Therefore, it wouldn't mix
with the soul of a man. An animal's life won't come back upon the human
31 Now, our sacrifice today, It not only an ordinary human being, but
it was God Himself that was identified in flesh here upon the earth.
When that Blood cell was broke, not only did the soul of a man, or a
spirit of a man, but God Himself, Who was identified in that man,
returned back upon the believer in the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
That's the Token that God requires today. The Token of today that we
have to have must be the Holy Spirit. That's God's required Token.
We'll prove it to you by the Scriptures.
Without the Holy Spirit, you do not display the Token. That's... The
Token shows that the--that you have identified yourself with the
sacrifice, and God has sent you back the Token to show that you've been
accepted. Until that's done, no matter how good you are, how much you
know, how much... A college professor, good person, preacher, whatever
it might be, you are absolutely not recognized until you can show the
33 Israel, in that exodus as they come out that time, they had to have
the token to prove that they was identified with their sacrifice.
And tonight God requires the baptism of the Holy Ghost for proof that
we've been identified in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. There's
nothing short of it. The Bible teaches it plain. And we must believe
it. It's God's Word. God's requiring it. We're having an exodus again.
We all know that. Israel is marching to the promised land. So will the
Bride go to her home pretty soon.
35 Now, we find out the blood was a token and--and was identified.
Everyone was identified by the blood.
The Holy Ghost is our Token today to identify us by--with Jesus Christ
in His resurrection, the Blood being applied by faith.
The chemistry of the Blood could not sprinkle every heart; we know
that, because it was shed on Calvary. It bathed the ground. But out...
When that Blood cell was broke, it released God through the sanctifying
power that the Blood had to come back to believers.
38 God in the beginning was God the Father, Who lived above all, just
like the Pillar of Fire that led the children of Israel through the
wilderness. He come down upon the mountain. If anybody touched the
mountain because--he must be killed. God's holy, and He cannot condone
sin in no manner. And the man that touched that mountain died... Even a
beast had to be thrust through. When God came down... He was holy.
Then God condescending, come down, and was made in the form of a Man
that we could handle Him, touch Him, the Bible says. In that teeny
little Blood cell...
41 Many Jews wants to say He was a Jew. Many of us wants to say He was
a Jew. He was neither Jew nor Gentile. He was God. He was a created
Being by the hand of almighty God. He created a tabernacle He lived in,
which we know is the Son of God. That's right. The deity, the supreme
deity of Jesus Christ, 'cause God dwelt in Him.
Peter said, "You men of Israel; Jesus of Nazareth, a Man made known by
God by signs and wonders, you took with wicked hands and crucified Him,
who we're witnesses of His resurrection," when the Holy Ghost had been
poured out upon them.
Now, we find out that in this great thing, that as God was identifying
Himself with Israel back there, and requiring that identification...
44 Now, we find out here, the Jews could say... They might say, "Well,
now, wait just a minute. I am a--I'm a Jew. I'm--I'm in the covenant of
Abraham. I'm circumcised. The covenant had--was annulled if the token
wasn't displayed. Think of that. I'm talking of a Token of this day. If
that blood wasn't displayed, that Token... I don't care how much you
could show you was a Jew, how much you said you believed. You might've
been rabbi, priest, or anything, but that token had to be applied. No
ins or outs, yes or no. Until He saw the blood... He would pass over...
Some fellows might say, "Come aside here. I can prove I was circumcised
at eight days. The priest has record of it. My name's on the book up
there." That didn't have one thing to do with it. The--the token was...
If the token was not applied, the covenant was annulled. It was of
46 We must remember that what God says, He never takes back, but He
adds to. "Them of old times, you heard them say, 'Thou shall not commit
adultery.' But I say unto you that whosoever looketh upon a woman to
lust after her hath committed adultery with her already." He never
takes back; He adds to. He magnifies. That's what He does. All of His
works, He continually magnifies them.
That's where we're walking from one church age, from Luther into
Wesley, into Pentecost, and on and on, as we go. As we move on up, God
continually magnifies the same Word, just keep it going like that,
until finally the church will come into the image of Jesus Christ,
which will be His Bride that He'll take home (That's right.), things
that we're looking for today. Sure, we realize that the church will go
through the tribulation, but the Bride won't. She'll be taken out from
the church, just as--as Israel was taken out of Egypt. We find out now,
that the Holy Spirit was the One now, that identifies us with Jesus
48 The Jews might say, "Yes, we're covenant Jews." But if they did not
have the token, the covenant was of no effect. Same thing now, no
matter how good we are, no matter... You might say, "Well, I--I've did
this, and I've done all these things, and I've paid my tithes; I belong
to the church; I do all this." God requires a Token, show that you have
been identified with your sacrifice, the One that you claim to have,
the One that you believe that you have.
Peter said, "Repent, every one of you, and be baptized in the Name of
Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift
of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children,
and to them that's far off, as--even as many as the Lord our God shall
51 Who is that sinful man that will change that, and say "The days of
miracles is past"? Who will do that, and say that God's Word was wrong,
when He said, "Whosoever calls upon the Name of the Lord... For the
promise is unto you and to your children and to them that's far off,
even as many as the Lord our God shall call." He'll stamp the Token
That makes the difference between the believer and the unbeliever.
There were those sealed by the Kingdom of God, and those marked by the
mark of the beast. And the ones that was marked by the mark of the
beast could not take the seal of God. The same thing's coming in today,
and we see it right before our own eyes.
54 No matter how good you are, how much you say you're a believer, God
requires the Token. He required it in Egypt; He requires it tonight. He
requires it tonight. Still, the Token is just as much required in this
age as it was in that age. I don't care if you was a Bible student, how
well you can explain the Scripture. Satan can do the same thing. But
remember, that has nothing to do with it. God requires one thing;
that's the Token. The Token shows that you are identified with your
sacrifice that you claim that you worship. Amen. That's it. "When I see
the blood, or the token... The blood shall be a token, and I see the
blood, I'll pass over you."
55 Death was ready to strike Egypt then at any time. It was a great
tremendous time. God had showed them grace by showing His power, signs.
Still they desired not to repent and not turn back. They didn't want
anything like that. They didn't believe it. They didn't believe the
message that was going on. God had sent them a message. They didn't
believe it. They still wanted to go right on the way they were did.
Just a perfect type of today, same thing. Every spiritual happening and
every spiritual sign is a warning from God that something's fixing to
take place, if that sign comes from God. If it's manmade, there's
nothing to it. But if it's God-sent, anyone knows... Everyone knows
that God sends a sign. If it's a supernatural sign, He sends a message
with that sign. Always does, He never fails to do that. You see things
that's not signs of God. Well, then it won't be nothing, 'cause God
isn't in it. But when God's in it, a message is going to follow that.
And that message must be from the Scripture; that must be a Scriptural
message. It must come "THUS SAITH THE LORD." Every spiritual happening
is a sign from God.
57 Like the message and the signs a following in this day, like it was
in the days of other days that we pass through in the Bible time. And
no other time could this ever be till now. No other time could this
message ever come forth till now. Jesus said, "As it was in the days of
Sodom, so shall it be in the coming of the Son of man." The message
could not be till now. The world wasn't in the condition
as--until--it's in now. This is the hour that Jesus could appear at any
The sleeping virgin coming in, trying to buy oil... That is--that time
when the Bride went in, and the rest of them was left here. Did you
ever think what happened? They went right ahead preaching and thinking
they were getting souls saved and everything, and did not know it. They
knew nothing about it. The church will go on thinking souls are being
saved and everything else, and the church is already... The Bride's
sealed away. Don't know it. Certainly. That's exactly what the
Scripture said. Noah went into the ark, and God sealed it out. Truly.
And the time will come when men and women will cry to God, and even
think that they've got something, when they haven't. That's exactly
right. The Scripture speaks that.
59 Likewise, we must remember that God is long-suffering, not willing
that any should perish. He always sends His signs, His wonders. And
then when He gets ready to do anything, He separates the believer from
And notice then how He provided for His promised-land people. Look what
He did for His promised-land people there, to be sure that they would
not be mixed up in some kind of an ism. What did He do? He sent a
prophet to them, Moses, with a message identifying God's Word. And to
identify Moses, He sent a Pillar of Fire that hung over him. Amen. Then
to give him the perfect assurance, He required a token. Amen. There's a
messenger, the message, and the vindication, and the token, the perfect
assurance that they had nothing to worry about. No matter how many
plagues strike, what everybody else says they are sealed away.
61 Israel coming out of Egypt, as I said a few minutes ago, is a type
of the Bride coming out of the church. When Moses begin His ministry,
Israel gathered together in one place, in Goshen, begin to pray because
they knowed that the hour was at hand, because they knew something was
there. The deliverer had already come. God was working, doing things,
showing what He was going to do. They come from all parts of Egypt,
just like they will at the day of His coming. They'll take people out
of the Methodist, Baptist, Lutheran. All those who are identified in
Christ by the Token, God will take them with Him when He comes.
62 We read over here in Hebrews the 10th chapter, 26th verse, "If we
sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there
remaineth no more sacrifice for sin, but a fearful, dreadful, looking
for the fiery judgments which will devour the adversary." That is, if
we disbelieve willfully after we have a knowledge of the truth, there
is no more sacrifice for sin. Think of it. No matter what you're
thinking in your heart, the Token can never be applied. If you reject
it the last time, then it cannot be applied, he--for he that sins or
63 As we see the great ensigns and times a coming as we are now with
the promise of the Word, every Word that's been promised to us before
the end-time, we're laying right in it now, even to the marking of the
beast and the denominations getting together, and--and the papal reign
coming in, and everything just exactly the way it is. The world's
hanging yonder; the atomic bombs is in the hangers, and God's speaking
through His servants into the churches and pulling them out, and
showing the signs that He promised He would do, just before His coming.
We're at the end time. The Token is required. Yes, sir. Now, we know
that those things are true. As they was, they were only a type of what
we're going through now. As we see these great signs coming at the end
time, warning us the time is at hand...
64 Don't sin willfully, don't disbelieve willfully. If there's
something in you, that'll say, "Well, now, I don't see where I need the
Holy Ghost. I might not need it. I believe when I believed I got it."
Paul said to the people that asked that question; he said, "Have you
received the Holy Ghost since you have believed?"
The Holy Ghost is a Token. A man believes God; that is true enough, but
the Holy Ghost is a gift of God. It's something different than your
faith. Your faith applies it; that's exactly right. But the Holy Ghost
is the Witness. We'll see just in a few minutes how it works, and what
takes place, where we can be sure where we know whether we're right or
not. It warns us that the time is at hand.
67 We should love one another during this time. The church and the
believers should be unseparable. Believers should separate themselves
from all the things of the world. Everything that's ungodly, the
believer should separate himself from it.
Notice. They were not just to come together to talk about it, and say
"We believe it." They were come together to apply the blood, not come
say, "Oh, sure I believe that," walk home. They had to come and apply
the blood, that the Token might be seen. Get beneath it.
That's... Today, we set and hear the message preached. We read it out
of the Bible. We say "Oh, yes, I believe that." That ain't what God
requires. No matter how much you believe it, you've got to have it.
Church, wake up.
70 America, This is your last hour. Judgment lays in the balance yonder
for this nation. If God would let this nation get by with what it's
done now, He'd be obligated to raise up Sodom and Gomorrah and
apologize for burning them up. That's right. We are going to pay for
our sins. We're doing the same thing they did in Sodom.
And God has sent down, message just exactly the way He did in Sodom.
Just exactly, He sent one to the church out there, to the Lot group,
and to Sodom. And He sent to the elect, and so forth. And proved that
the church is setting exactly in the condition it was in the days
of--of Lot. And Jesus said it would be again. Friends, it's on our
hands. What are we going to do with it?
You say "Blood on your hands?" Yes.
72 What do you think Oswald thought, when he was setting in that room
the other day by taking the blood of his fellowman, shooting the
President in assassination? And he was setting there, knowed he had to
face that federal court, when that Supreme Court would look on him with
angry eyes, knowing that on his hands was the blood of the President of
the United States. He is in a sweat-box.
What ought it to do to a man, when you know you've trampled over the
Blood of Jesus Christ, and refused to do it? Setting in a sweat box!
Not only will you be judged by a Supreme court: by an angry God that
can cast the body away and throw the soul into hell. You stop. Look.
Listen. Take heed. We just trample on easy, and think He's so loving.
74 A young fellow said the other day, "God loves me so well..."
God is a good God. That is true. But He's a God of anger too. He's a
God of judgment. He's a God of wrath. We fail to get that. You make Him
so good, till you make Him some old doty grandpa. He's not no doty
grandfather. He Almighty God, and He don't have no grandchildren. He
has sons and daughters of God, not shook hands and adopted in; you must
be borned again, and the Blood applied. It's sons and daughters of God,
not some old soft grandfather let his kids get by--grandchildren get by
with anything. He's not a grandfather. He's a Father. Yes, sir. Every
child must be borned of Him. He's a Father of correction.
76 We know that this hour's here. Judgments is at hand. What are we
going to do with it? I'd hate to have His blood upon me. There's only
one way you could ever get it off of you. You can't wash it off. Pilate
tried that. He tried to pass the buck on to somebody else, and said,
"Send Him on over to a Caesar, or someone else like that, and see what
he does." It backfired. It fell right back in his lap again. Right.
And today we try to say, "I would if my husband... I would if my
wife... I would if the--my church..." Backfires right back on you
again. When you say, "Oh, well. My church believes this..." But when
Jesus Christ comes down in these meetings, and identifies Himself in
the Scripture that He's the same yesterday, today, and forever, I don't
care what your interpretation is. It backfires right in your lap, and
it's on your hands. Not a thing, brothers and sisters, you can do.
79 Friends, remember this, you of California, you're at the end of the
west coast here. Civilization's traveled with it. All the riff-raff is
blowing in. And the next thing it'll go to Israel, when the church is
taken up. Take warning. There's only one way you can get the Blood of
Jesus Christ off your hands, is put it in your heart. Only one way,
it'll never work no other way. Said, "When I see the blood, when it's
applied in the right place..."
"Well," you say, "I believe the blood."
What if they'd throwed it out in the back yard? What if they'd put it
on the chicken house? What if they'd throwed it on the garage? No. It
had to be applied at one certain place. That was on the lintel.
81 In the heart. That's where God wants the Blood today. not on your
hands, but on your heart, God wants it.
And it's on your hands today, if you haven't accepted Him and got the
seal in your heart. It's on your hands. His identification of His
Scripture in this last days puts it right back on our hands. What can
we do with this Jesus that's called Christ? What are we going to do
with it? Only one thing is display His Blood by letting it be on our
heart by the Holy Ghost.
83 We are responsible. Any of us that's not beneath that Blood, God is
not responsible for it, not even one. All the whole family had to come,
not just one member. Say, "Well, dad's a good man. He's a preacher.
I'll be saved." No, sir. Your godly father and mother has nothing to do
with you. You're an individual.
"I belong to the holy church. That church..." The church has nothing to
do with you.
There is no such a thing as a holy church. There is no such a thing as
a holy person. It's a Holy Ghost with the people, the Holy Ghost in the
church. No holy mountains, no holy places, It's a holy God. Not you
being holy, me being holy; it's He that's the one that's holy.
We are responsible to Him, not to a church. We are responsible to God
and to His Word; and God is the Word. The Bible said He was. We're
responsible to that. That's Jesus Christ.
88 Notice what He did then. We find out that the whole family only was
saved when the token was displayed. When the token was displayed they
Look in the 2nd chapter of Joshua. We find out here, that a believing
harlot by the name of Rahab, a Gentile harlot over across the river...
When they'd come into the promised land, the spies went over to spy.
All of her family was saved under the token, that only. Remember, God's
destroying angel honored that token. When... The churches went down;
the mayor fell; the city went down; the king went down, the governor,
the educated, the pretty women, the handsome men, the important, the
all-sufficients, and everything went down that wasn't under that token.
So will it be at the coming of the Son of God. His destroying angel
will destroy everything who hasn't got the Token of the baptism of the
Holy Ghost upon them to show that you've been identified, and died
yourself to your sacrifice, and are borned into the Spirit of God, and
sealed there by the Holy Ghost. Only one God, and He's the only One
that speaks the right word. And this is it. None other can take
anything from it.
91 Notice. Jericho had heard what God was doing. Jericho had heard the
words. You remember what the harlot said? "We have heard how God did
great things. I fear. Will you just spare me if I'll show kindness to
And the Caleb and--and--and Joshua had told them what to do, how to
apply this scarlet cord, and stay under it. "We're not responsible for
Said, "Can I bring my father in? Can I bring my mother? Can I bring my
brothers, my sisters, my neighbors?"
"Bring all that you can get under it."
That's just the same today, brother. It isn't, "Can we bring
Methodists, can we bring Baptists, can we bring Pentecostals?" All
that's ready to come under it, God will accept you. But that and that
alone will only identify you with Him. Notice. Yes.
95 His great powers and signs that He had done down there... And if
they seen it and knowed, why can't we have women and men today just as
honest as that woman was when we see what God promised to do, and see
Him doing it? Then next thing comes judgment.
They must believe... They were--they were... They believed... They must
have believed they were safe in that great wall where were--where they
were at, their great big family, their great big place.
Many people today... I say this through reverence and respect... Many
people today say, "I belong to the biggest church there is in the city.
My mother belonged to that church. It's one of the oldest churches."
That don't have one thing to do with it. The--the Token has got to be
They might've thought that big thing they lived in, that big system,
that was going to save them. But we find out every thing that didn't
show that token perished in the city. So will it be at the coming of
the Son of man. He's done said so.
99 There must have been some of them tape boys or somebody slipped into
the place down there, and played some tapes to them, or something or
other, and found the predestinated. She took all of her house and used
it for a church, and received the messengers.
Then when they got all in the city that would come under it and believe
the token, when she got all of it in there, then the destruction come.
When God's wrath destroyed that big system they had down there, the
token sign held her house safe. The token sign, not nothing else...
101 No matter how much societies, and how many good Red Cross things
they had, which is all good, how much of this, and how many charity
organizations, everything perished that wasn't under that token. Now,
think of it. Everything perished. I don't care how big a church they
had, how big a denomination they belonged to, if it was the king's
palace; everything perished. And so did everything perish in Egypt that
wasn't under that token.
Now, God doesn't change His ways. He's got a Token today. My brother,
sister, you'd better receive it. You'd better have it. Just remember,
it's a warning.
104 Look. The same life that the token dipped in... The same thing that
the token did in Egypt, it spared everything that was under it;
everything without it perished.
Joshua is a type of Jesus, which "Joshua" means "Jehovah-Saviour." So
does "Jesus" mean "Jehovah-Saviour." Joshua was true to the token sign
that his messengers had preached. So will Jesus be true to the Token
sign that His messengers preach, when He comes. All under it was saved
in Egypt. All under it was saved in Jericho. What about today? We find
out the lamb's blood was a type of Jesus Christ. All right.
106 In Hebrews 13 we find this, it is called there the everlasting
covenant. God had a covenant with them. But the Blood now is an
everlasting covenant, the Blood of Jesus Christ.
God's Blood-bound promises makes us free from sin and self, makes us
free from anything of the world. No matter how much we try to fashion
of the world, it's all dead. If we're in God's Blood-bound promises, we
see nothing but the Blood. How could they look out that door without
seeing the blood? How can you look out at anything without seeing first
the Blood of Jesus Christ? If you're in Christ you see that.
To worship Him and to show forth His promises in power... He promised
these things to come. His Blood-bound people are in Him, sealed in
there by the Holy Spirit, and are looking only at the Blood and the
promise. They can't look at the world. They're dead to the world, and
the world's dead to them.
108 And to see Christians today, who can do anything that the rest of
the world does, act like them, swear like them, drink like them, smoke
like them, and root in the pigpens of sin and--and dance halls, and
things like them, and then still say they are Christians. You can't do
that, friend. That's the reason people can't believe the power of God.
They can't believe the signs and wonders. They done died to those
things, and are resurrected over yonder in the world. But those who are
dead to the world are raised in Christ, and are looking for His promise.
109 The "New Testament" means "new covenant." The blood life... The
Blood life itself is the Token. The life out of the Blood is the Token.
Remember, in the Old Testament the actual blood of the lamb had to be
applied. Here it's the Token of the Blood. It is the Life from the
Blood that's in the person for the Token. Oh, my.
The new Token is the new Life, that comes through Jesus Christ when His
Blood was shed to sanctify a church, and fill it with His Presence,
that He might manifest His Word and His promises to the people.
111 "God in sundry times and divers manners..." Hebrews 1 said He spoke
to the fathers through the prophets; but in this last day through His
Son, Jesus Christ. What is His Son? The Word. The Word was made flesh
and dwelt among us. And This is the revelation, the completeness of
Christ. Whoever will add one word to It, or take one from It, the same
will be taken, His part, out of the Book of Life. There is the
revelation. We only need the Token with us to make that Word live
again. That's what He sent the Token for. He give us the
statement--give us that statement. And we know it's the truth.
112 The new Token shows Jesus has met every requirement for us, and is
here. The new Token, the Token of the Holy Spirit, shows that we know
that Jesus died to free us from all the things of the world. And the
Token that it is upon us proves it by vindicating what He said.
Now, how can a man claim to hold that Token in front of him, and deny
what this Word says? It isn't so. It can't be so. God can't lie about
His own Word.
114 And because He is here, we have the--the right to all that He
purchased for us. Notice. What was the Token to do? To purchase. It's
the price that's been paid. When you have the Token, you have a right
then to present that Token to anything that He purchased for you. And
no one can buy it without it. It only can be purchased by the Token.
Remember, if you went out here at the bus line, say, "Here, I tell
you... I got a... I got a token that says another bus line." That won't
work. "I got a token that says it come from Maine, from New Hampshire."
It won't work in California. You've got to have the token of that bus
line in order to... Purchase shows that you have purchased that fare on
116 And when we can display the Token of the Holy Spirit, shows that we
have been accepted in Christ. And that is our Token that all that we
have need of is already purchased by Him. We are identified with our
Token. The Token must be ready.
The Blood, covenant Blood is not recognized without the Token. The Word
assures us of the promise. The Token is a sign the purchase has been
made for us.
Full obedience to the full Word of God entitles us to the Token. No
other way is there that you can ever be entitled to the Token until you
fully obey the Word. Not what somebody's put into it, and added to it,
but what God said about it.
119 When He said, "You must be born again," that don't mean jump
up-and-down at the altar. That don't mean walk back there, and shake
hands with the pastor. That don't mean all this foolishness that we've
seen done. It don't mean putting your name on a church book. It means
death to your first being, and life to the second being. It means that
the Blood has been applied, and you're identified by the Life of Jesus
Christ. And if He be the Vine, and we be the branches, the Life that's
in the branch is in the--also from the Vine. It'll bear the fruit.
If that first branch come forth, that branch out of that Vine that
wrote a book of Acts behind it, if that branch ever puts forth--Vine
puts forth another branch, they'll write another book of Acts behind
it, 'cause it's the same Life. If one of your grape vines out here
brings forth blue grapes, if it puts forth another branch it'll bring
forth blue grapes.
121 I tell you, today we got so many grafted vines into it, with
denominations, and creeds, and things. And yet any citrus fruit grafted
in can live, live in that vine. But it's bearing the wrong fruit.
What we need today is another baptism of the Holy Spirit, and have the
real power of God that identifies the works that Jesus Christ promised
for this day, not so much as that day, this day, the promise that He
made here. That's what He promised there, He'd pour out His Spirit. Now
He's promised it again in the last days, and what He would do.
Strange that we can always look back. But you never look ahead. That's
the way with man. He's always saying--glorifying God for what He did
do, praising Him for what He's going to do, and ignoring what He's
doing. That's always the way of man. It's still the same thing.
124 Full obedience to the Word brings God, the Word eternal in you. And
that is the Token. When the Word is in you, it's Christ in you.
Now, notice. When... Then when we pray, if we have the Token... And
when we pray we have the Token, we are--present our Token with our
prayer. Now, if you're sick, if you're a sinner, if you're in need,
when you have the Token you have a right. If I had the token to a bus
line in my hand, they can't keep me off of that bus. They've accepted
my money, and I have the token. In this case I could not pay my price;
you could not pay it. But He paid it for us and give us the Token.
Amen. I have a right to Divine healing. Jesus Christ died that I could
have Divine healing. I have a right to claim every promise in that
Book. When will you get it? When you have the Token, and can
rep--present the Token with your prayer. If you haven't got it, the
sign of the full obedience the fare is paid...
126 Paul tells us the Blood speaks. Blood speaks, did we say? Does the
Blood speak, can it speak, that Token speak? Yes, sir.
If we'd--we'd look in Genesis 4:10, the voice of the blood of Abel
cried out against Cain. We find out in Hebrews 12:24 that the Blood of
Jesus Christ speaks better things. The Blood speaks. How can the
chemistry speak? It's the life that's in the blood that does the
speaking. The soul that was in Cain that cried out--or in Abel. It was
the Life that was in Christ that cries out better things than any... It
speaks, and it speaks loud. It's the Holy Spirit. It speaks plain. It
tells us that the time is here, when we see it. For it said it would
say it. And then we see it come back and identify what it said. It's...
There's nothing else left but to believe it (That's right.), to receive
128 Believe for self and apply the Token also for the family like they
did in Egypt, and like they did at Jericho. Acts 16:31, we find out
Paul told the--the Roman to be baptized, calling upon the Name of the
Lord. Him and his house could be saved by doing the same thing.
Move out. Some people wants to apply the Blood and stay in. You apply
the Blood, and kick all the trash out of the house, and have a
house-cleaning time. You women take off them shorts. You men throw away
them cigarettes, you women too. Get all this old stuff out of the
system here that's called the world. "If you love the world or the
things of the world, it's because the love of God's not even in you."
When you're ready to apply the Token, empty up and get ready for it.
You can't serve God and mammon at the same time. Women come along...
130 I've passed across this country. I've made remarks about Mrs.
Kennedy with her Jezebel haircut, and all like that, and your big
water-heads. And these women... I wonder, if Mrs. Kennedy would've
heard the messages I preached, she might've let her hair grow out a
long time ago. But I've crossed this country back and forth, showing by
the Word that it's wrong, and a condemnation for women to cut their
hair, and the Pentecostal women continue to go on the same way. She
might rise in the day of judgment not knowing it; but you know better.
It shows the Blood hasn't been applied. The Token's not there.
131 Long hair is a Nazarite vow. It showed that you've cut yourself
from the world to obey the Word. Amen. Samson let his hair grow out for
a Nazarite vow. Now, we realizing these things...
And women dressing and acting and doing, and men permitting them to do
it, big bunch of sissies... It seems like there's not even men anymore.
You see men wearing pink shoes, and preachers on the pulpit, something
like that. That's a disgrace. I like to see men again that's absolutely
men. Looks like there's a power that drives them to do it; it's the
devil and the pressure of this day. That's right. Sometime a man
weighing two hundred pounds, and muscles like that, and not a ounce of
man in him; acts like some big sissy out here. I like... Let men be
men. Let women be feminish; let them be ladies. When the Token's
applied, they turn back to that. God made them different, and they are
different. Men wants to look like women; women wants to look like men.
Goes to show there's a perversion, a dark spirit hanging over, gross
darkness over the people. It's the hour of the calling out. There's a
darkness over Egypt before the calling out, then the token was applied.
It's time for the church to get the Token or gross darkness is upon the
people. Gross darkness...
134 Yes. Clean out the cupboard; clean out the house. Oh, we have a
good old fashion house-cleaning. Let the Blood be applied. Then the
Token will come in. Clean it out. Sanctify it.
Then apply the Token in prayer, with confidence, when you've cleaned
yourself up. You've got away from the things of the world. You dumped
all the unbelief out. "I don't care what the people says. If the Word
of God says it and promised it, I believe it. If the Word says it, that
settles it. I don't care what anybody else says." See? Then when you
got all that done, you've applied the Blood, and you believe every
word, then take your Token in prayer, be fully convinced.
136 We read in--in Ephesians 2nd chapter and 12th verse, about what God
said about it when we applied this Token. Notice, serving the living
God with living works, and with living signs, with a living Token; not
dead works, and carnal, not dead works. Hebrews 9:11-14 tells us again
the same thing, not dead creeds, but a living Token. They... These
creeds deny that there is such a thing as a Token. They don't even
believe there is such a thing as a Token, the baptism of the Holy Ghost.
But we who believe the Word know better, know it. And it's His living
Presence for us in this day. We separated from dead works, and the Holy
Ghost comes in to confirm the Word and make it so. Hebrews 13:8 proves
that to us, proves that God has raised Him up for us according to His
promised Word. Thousands of years has passed; two thousand years almost
has passed. But what is it? The Token still holds that God raised Him
up on the third day. If you just got the Word, that's all you got. But
when the Token is applied, then Christ is reality to you. And He does
today like He did then. So it throws it right back in their lap again.
They can't get around it. God promised it, and here it is that the
Token's got to be applied. He takes the Token and when...
138 And when you accept His sacrifice Blood, then He gives us Life, the
Life of the Token, and it is a promised seal: Ephesians 4:30, "Grieve
not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby you are sealed unto the day of your
redemption." Then being baptized into Him, I Corinthians 12, we become
part of His Body.
And in Him is the Fullness. In Him is all the sufficiency that we have
need of. He is my Pleasure; He is my Life; He's my Joy, He's my... He's
where... Now, I don't have to puff on a cigarette to get some kind of a
relief. I take the Lily of the Valley. He's the opium. He's the thing
that--that makes me walk in the clouds. He's my All-sufficient. He's my
Hopes; He's my Rest; He's my God, He's my Saviour; He's my Healer. He's
all that I have need of, because I die... We die in Him, and are
baptized in Him, and in Him is all sufficiency.
140 Listen close, while I make this closing remark. If Satan tries to
hand you some of this stuff like sickness, you know what you do? Just
show him the Token. "I am a purchased product. My healing has been paid
for. I am a product of God, because I have the Token of the Holy Ghost.
You cannot keep me off of this highway. You cannot keep me from my
health. I present the Token and show you that my--by His stripes I was
healed. Here's the resurrection of Jesus Christ right in me now to
prove it to you." Oh, there's the real thing. There's the Token.
That's the reason people don't believe it. That's the reason it's hard
for them to see in. The Token has never been applied. See? That's the
reason, say, "Oh, days of miracles is past." You're doing that for a
142 Jesus said, "Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to
every creature. He that believeth and is baptized, shall be saved. He
that believeth not shall be damned. These signs shall follow them that
believe." How far? To all the world, to every creature. "In My Name
they shall cast out devils. They'll speak with new tongues, take up
serpents, or drink deadly things, it won't harm them. If they lay their
hands on the sick, they shall recover." Apply the Token, and then claim
your rights. Shake it before Satan.
143 The bus driver says, "Say..." Airplane man says, "Say, you can't
get on this plane."
"There's the Token." Amen.
"You're too ragged; you're not... Your rags, you're too poor. We don't
take little men, big men."
"But I hold the Token. Amen. You can't keep me off of it." Hallelujah.
When you give me the Token, that settles it. I have a right, as the
rest of them have.
I have a right, just the same as Paul had. I have a right, the same
that any man was ever baptized with the Holy Ghost. I got the same
right, because I got the same Token to show the same God purchased my
same thing for me, on the same day, on the same thing.
147 There you are: Blood, the Blood, the Token. Not the Blood
chemistry, but the Token, the Holy Ghost, the Life out of the Blood
that comes... What does that Life does? Comes and confirms what the
Token has been purchased for. The Token confirms what the--the Blood
bought for you. The Blood purchased your redemption. The Token is an
evidence of it. The Blood... He was wounded for our transgressions,
bruised for our iniquities, chastisement of our peace was upon Him.
With His stripes we were healed. See? All Blood, Blood, Blood. Then
when the Token come, it shows that you've been identified with that
sacrifice. Amen. The devil can't keep you from it.
148 That's when I stand at the platform here to face everything there
is, and around the world, and devils... God's Word promised it. As long
as I can know that Blood has been applied, and holding that Holy Spirit
here in my heart, the devil has not one word to say against it. Yes,
We'll walk where the apostles have trod (Yes, sir.), because the Token
paid the way. The Token's the evidence that the way has been paid, and
we've accepted it. And to prove it, God gave us the Token, the sign
that we was received.
150 A minister said to me one time, said, "Brother Branham, Abraham
believed God and it was imputed to him for righteousness."
And I said, "That's true."
Said, "What more can a man do but believe?"
I said, "That's exactly right."
"Then where do you get this Holy Ghost outside of believing?"
I said, "But He give him the seal of circumcision as a confirmation of
his faith." Amen.
And if He's never give you the baptism of the Holy Ghost yet, then He
hasn't confirmed your faith that you say you have. But the Token is a
I say, "I got the money. I paid it in the office down there." But
you've got to show the Token. That's right.
155 When I show the Token, I got a right. And when I can show the Token
of the Holy Spirit, you've got the right to any purchased thing that
Jesus Christ died for. It's the Token.
Watch, just a moment, as we close. Hold the Token over your unwavering
faith in the promised Word. I believe that Jesus said, "Ask the Father
anything in My Name, I'll do it." Hold your Token over that promised
Word and walk right to it. "I'm the Lord that heals all thy diseases.
He was wounded for my transgressions; with His stripes I was healed."
Take my Token of the Holy Spirit that's in me, hold it over my prayer,
and say, "Lord God, You promised it."
"When I see the Token I will reward you. I promised to do it." He can't
do nothing else. He looked right through the Blood of His own Son.
There's the Token applied. He has to do it, because He promised it.
156 He could not go into a house, the death angel destroyer, and take
one out. He couldn't do it, because there was the blood of the lamb,
the requirement of Jehovah. And the requirement of Him today is the
Blood of His own Son Jesus Christ, and the Token of the Holy Ghost.
If we haven't got it... We might be Baptist, Presbyterian, Lutheran,
Pentecostals, whatever we might be. We might shout, scream; we might
be, oh, so educated. That has not one thing to do with it. You must
present the Token.
Then you're a subject for the resurrection, because the resurrecting
power is already in you. The Token is the resurrection power, showing
that Jesus raised up from the dead, and you are raised from the dead,
the dead things of unbelief, and have been a--made alive in the Word of
Jesus Christ. You believe it, and the Word lives through you.
160 "If ye abide in Me, and My Word in you, ask what you will." St.
John 14:12, "He that believeth in Me, the works that I do, he shall do
also. Greater than this shall he do, because I go to the Father. A
little while and the world seeth Me no more. Yet you shall see Me,
because I'll be with you, even in you." How did He? Not the body, He's
setting at the right hand of the majesty, but the Token that you have
received it and He's give it back to you. Take that Token and claim
anything you wish to. God promised it.
161 I've always said I met two classes of people: the fundamentals and
the Pentecostals. The fundamentals positionally study the Scriptures
and figure it out. They say, "Well, we're sons of God." They believe
that. Yes, sir. But they don't have any faith with it. But the
Pentecostals has a lot of faith, and they don't know they're sons of
God. Like a man got money in the bank can't write a check; the other
one can write a check and got no money in the bank. If you could ever
just get the thing together, till men and women could realize...
You that's been truly baptized into the Holy Spirit, and you have the
Token to display, you have a right to every redemptive blessings that
God promised. Everything that He promised is yours. Hold your Token
over your unwavering faith as you pray, and over His Word, faith in His
163 God once gave a token to the people, and that was a rainbow. Looky,
listen close. We're closing. God ever remained true to that token. Way
back in the days of Noah, destruction of the antediluvian world, God
gave this nation--or give the world a rainbow sign for a token. And God
ever displays His token. As the thousands of years roll by, He never
fails, because He watches His tokens. All these thousands of years He's
displayed it to us, showing us that He never fails to honor the token.
He never fails to honor it.
164 He expects us now to display the Token over our faith, to Satan's
group, the unbelievers, and cults, and so forth, that don't believe in
it, that we, believing what He has said of His promises, and that Jesus
Christ has raised up from the dead, showing Himself alive... And that
is the badge, the Token of identification, because it's Christ's own
Life in you identifying the Word. It doesn't need anything else. That's
the Token. Without the Token...
Shows the fare is paid, shows that you're a subject for the
resurrection, that God, that same power that raised up Jesus from the
grave, you're holding within yourself as a Token. The Holy Ghost in you
is the Token that brings you from the grave, because the Token is God,
the Holy Spirit, which is Eternal Life, coming from the Greek word
"Zoe," which means "God's own Life," in you. That's the only thing that
paid the price. If that Token isn't there, how are you going to raise?
166 Brother, sister, tonight, with all fairness to God and to His Word,
and to each other, and to the time that we're now living in, if you're
without the Token, if you don't have the Token... Some of you might not
even believe it. But it's here. The Token has been here since Christ
died. Why don't you identify yourself in death to your own thinking
tonight, and let the thoughts that's in Him be in you. "Let the
meditation of my heart be acceptable to Thee, O Lord. Let Thy Word, 'If
ye abide in Me and my Word in you (That is Him.), then ask what you
will, and it'll be given to you.'" Don't you believe that?
167 Let us bow our heads a moment. How many people in here that know
that the way you live, that you really haven't got that Token applied?
You know it isn't there. You believe it. You absolutely believe it; but
you haven't got it. You know you haven't. Would you just raise your
hand and say, "Pray for me, Brother Branham." Let all heads be down.
God bless you.
"I haven't got it. I haven't, Brother Branham. I've tried to accept it.
I believe it, but really, it hasn't been applied to me yet. I look in
the glass. I see I'm not there. I look at the way I--I feel what's in
my soul. I'm full of temper, anger. I'm jealous. I've got all..." Oh,
my, that'd grieve the Holy Spirit from you right now. See, see?
"Now, I tell you. I--I--I do; I see the Word and see it confirmed; but
yet, I--I just got a bunch of people that I go with to my church, or my
society, my card parties, something. I just can't give them up."
That shows you haven't got the Token. "If you love the world or the
things of the world, the love of God's not... Come out from among
them," the Bible said. "Touch not their unclean things."
Friends, it can't be made more real that it is now. It can't be. The
Token is here, if we'll believe it. Do you believe it? Will you accept
173 Lord Jesus, they're in Your hands now. May the Token, the Token
that Jesus is not dead, the Token that Jesus raised up from the dead,
and is here tonight... He's the Token of His resurrection. He Himself
is the Word. He is here to confirm everything He said. He's here to
confirm every promise that He made. If the people could just only see
it once, Lord, that it isn't something that we could guess about; it's
something we must know, Lord. There's no try over. You can't go back
and try again. It must be done now. I pray, God, that every person will
receive Him tonight. And may the Token of the Blood be applied to every
heart. And then may there be a revival come through this country here
that'll be great. Father, we commit it into Your hands, in Jesus
Christ's Name. Amen.
174 Now, while we're in prayer and everybody real quiet, don't no one
move now. Just a minute. Do you believe this is the truth, that the
Token's got to be displayed? It had in every time, every age, it had to
Now, what is... The Token is a confirmation of His Word, that--that
shows He is the Word. Now, the Word said He raised up from the dead,
and He's alive forevermore. He lives in His people, the same yesterday,
today, and forever. Do you believe that? If you believe that, then you
have a right if you have that Token, the Holy Spirit in you, you have a
right to everything that His death purchased for you. Won't you believe
it? Now, look. So it...
177 Now tonight, we wasn't going to pray for the sick tonight. We're
going to do that tomorrow afternoon. But we're--we're... Tonight we're
just going to make this altar call.
Here, friends. If you ever was healed, if you live long enough you're
going to get sick again. But if you one time take that Token, you've
had it forever. "Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby you are
sealed until the day of your redemption." Not till the next revival,
you wasn't sealed; you got emotionally worked up. But you are dead, and
your life is hid in God through Christ, and you're sealed by the Holy
Ghost. If you are once baptized into that Holy Spirit... Now, you can
backslide, that is true. But you can't get away from that seal. You're
sealed into it.
Now, if you haven't got that seal... Let's be real sincere. We got a
place fixed here, and for everybody... We can receive the Holy Ghost,
and if He heals the sick... Why did He put that upon my heart to do
180 Now, that same Jesus that was raised up from the dead is right here
now. Now, listen. The Word can't say one thing and me another. He said,
"Wherever two or three are gathered in My Name, there I am in their
midst." Is that right?
Now, look up this way as you do. How many in here is sick? Raise up
your hands. Just say, "I'm sick. I'm needy," or... Now, you don't have
to be sick, just, "I have a need of God. Brother Branham, I have need
of God for something. I--I believe Jesus is here."
Now, hold your Token right over that desire. Now, let me tell you by
His Word, and He cannot go contrary to that Word: He has already
purchased your desire, if it's according to His will. And His will is
to heal. His will is to give you your desire. He withhold no good thing
from them that walk upright before Him, presenting that Token.
183 Now, you're strangers to me. But just a moment, that you might
see... Now, here's ministers setting behind me, people all around.
There's belief and unbelief here. It's always that way. You can feel it
coming in. But it's anointing of the Holy Spirit, and that Holy Spirit
is that Token. He is that Token.
Now, you don't have to do it; everybody wasn't Moses. There's one
Moses; but the people follow it. Now, you just believe this, that He is
a-living today. He's here as a Witness. Now, each one of you that's got
some thing on your heart, pray.
Now, if He was here you'd say, "Lord Jesus, will you heal me?" He'd
say, "I've already did it." See, He couldn't do it again. He's already
done it. But He's just wanting you to believe it.
186 Now, He did promise in the last days that what God did in a human
flesh, just before Sodom, the end of the Gentile world, it would be
repeated again. He promised that. Now, will He keep that promise?
He promised Malachi 4, that He would do this, and manifest His Word to
turn the hearts of the children back to the fathers again, back to the
original Pentecostal Word, the real Bible Word. Not the...
The Pentecostal, they claim a the Pentecostal organization; there is no
such thing. Pentecost is an experience, not a organization. They tried
to organize it, but you can't. See? It doesn't organize. Pentecost is
an experience. It's a seal of God, the Holy Spirit that come on the day
190 Now, you believe. Look this way and believe that I've told you the
truth. And if He will manifest Himself... I don't know whether He will
or not, but if He will, that'll show that the Token that I'm talking
about, that the Blood has been applied, and the Token is here to
identify that Blood is correct, that Jesus Christ has raised from the
dead. You believe that? Well, that... What more clear could it be? See?
Just believe it.
Brother, sister, and friends, in the Name of Jesus Christ believe it,
for the sake of your soul and for the sake of others. You'll never have
192 If God would've spoke to me back before the foundation of the
world, when I was a thought in His mind, so were you, and if He'd said,
"What age would you want to live in?" I'd have said, "Right now." This
is it, the most glorious time that there is.
Believe, won't you? Now, that you might know that Jesus Christ lives,
now just in your heart pray and say, "Lord, You're a High Priest can be
touched by the feeling of our infirmities. And I believe that You are
the Token. Now, speak to me, that I might be healed."
Somebody in... Go in sections like you can see where, so I won't have
to be turning back and forth this way. You notice at times...
See, a vision, when you see a vision, it has to be interpreted also,
turned around. So sometimes, we got hundreds a pulling. You can just...
It just has to single one out.
Now everybody real reverent, for just a few minutes.
196 Then that'll prove... If a man says any thing, and--and--and God
don't back it up, well then it couldn't be God. But if God backs it up,
then you've got Him to talk to from there. May it happen for the glory
of God, as I stand here to represent this Word to be the truth.
There's a man sitting right there. If you... I--I just wish that you
could see in this dimension, this Light. Now, right now (See?)
something happened. You just pulled it out, like the human part lays
aside; that's a gift. And when it does, then it's--it's another world.
198 There's a man setting there, and he's praying. And what's the
matter with him, he's had an operation for something in the intestines.
And it's been some time ago, but it isn't doing right. I hope he
doesn't miss it. But God will help me; I'll call his name. Mr. Price,
believe. I don't know you, sir. I'm a stranger to you. If that's right
stand up on your feet. If that's right and know... Is that true? Yes,
Now, don't you see? What is it? It's the token identifying that Jesus
Christ raised from the dead, and is the same yesterday, today, and
forever, working through human flesh just like He did there before
Abraham, the elected church, before Sodom. And Jesus said it shall
return again in the coming of the Son of man.
200 Here. Here's another man setting here looking right at me, a real
contact. The man is suffering with a stomach trouble and a back
trouble. His name is Mr. Flannigan. I don't know you, but that's true.
That's your wife setting there by you. She's suffering too. You believe
that God's able to tell me now, in your fine contact of faith? Your
wife has a back trouble, and she's got a female trouble. It's in the
womb. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD.
Now, what is it? Who is doing that? The Bible said that He is a High
Priest that can be touched by the feeling of our infirmities. The Bible
said the Word of God is sharper than a two-edged sword in its
preaching, cutting to the sunder, and don't pay no attention to a
celebrity, or denomination, or anything. And then it also identifies
itself as a what? A Discerner of the thoughts that's in the heart. Is
that right? It's exactly right. If you could only believe that. Just
believe it with all your heart.
202 There's a lady setting right here. She's got tumors. She isn't from
here. She's from Sacramento. Her name is Mrs. Bradley. Stand up on your
feet if that's right, lady, and we're strangers. Raise your hand, if
that's right. Is that right? I truly believe they're gone. Now, that's
just a woman setting there.
Here's a lady setting way back here. She's got on a hat, kind of a
brown looking hat. It's got feathers. She's putting her glasses off.
She's setting there praying. She was praying for something to happen.
What makes that woman do that? That woman has just been healed of a
heart trouble. She's praying for her brother, and he has heart trouble.
And she's got a brother-in-law that's not saved, and she's praying for
him to be saved. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. If that's right, lady,
stand up on your feet, so the people can know. She was setting right
there saying that--praying for them people then. If that's right, wave
your hand, lady, back and forth, so they can see.
How could I tell her what she's praying about, from the platform here?
205 Here's a man setting right here. He's suffering with trouble in his
knees. He's praying for a friend that's crippled. He--he really... He
isn't from here. He's from Santa Maria, a place called Santa Maria. And
his name, they call him Tony. Stand up, if that's right. I'm a stranger
Hold your Token before your prayer. God... When that Angel of the Lord
met me years ago, when I first come in here, I took the people by the
hand. I told you that He told me this would come to pass. Now, there's
something greater than that. See, see? It is constantly going. Why?
Holding that Token before that. See? The Holy Spirit itself, It lives.
It's the one that does it. He said.
207 Now, if anybody's in doubt, go around these people and ask them if
I ever seen them, knowed them, or anything else. They're here. It's
just beginning to happen all over the building, now.
Now, here. If God can discern that, let me tell you something. There's
scores of you here tonight that needs the baptism of the Holy Ghost to
hold that Token. You're--you're--you're just thinking you've got it,
when you haven't. Don't take that chance, friends. Believe me. If you
believe me to be God's prophet... Or pardon me, I didn't mean to say
that. I don't call myself a prophet, God's servant. If you believe I'm
God's servant, I'm telling you in the Name of the Lord.
While we bow our heads just a moment...
209 This is a great call. I want every person in here that's not a
Christian, come up here a minute and let me pray with you and lay hands
upon you, while the Holy Spirit's on me, while I'm--His anointing is
here. The Token is displayed, infallible proofs. We you keep real
quiet, move out of your seat, and come up now.
If a sister there, or whoever the song leader is, just give us a chord
Now, will you come up? And just every person that's not a Christian,
come up here and stand here at the altar just a moment. That's good.
Lord bless you, my brother. Lord bless you, sister. Come right up
around the altar here. Every person...
Come every soul, now, that's sin oppressed.
There's mercy with the Lord.
212 Now will you do it? That's right. Come right up here; stand here
just a moment. You without Christ, look, the hour is getting late,
friends. The death angel might separate between the Bride and the
church at any time. Won't you...
Every soul of sin oppressed,
There's mercy with the Lord. (Won't you come now, while they're
He will surely give you rest,
By giving you the Token, then you're at rest. You see? You have the
identification. The Lord sent His message, identified it, by the Pillar
Only trust Him, only...
Christians, you who have the Token, pray. Sinners without Christ, will
you come while He's so clearly identified here as the Token? The Token,
He's not dead. He's raised from the dead. Will you come now?
... will save you,
He will save you now.
215 Only trust...
Just trust Him. You say, "Brother Branham, I don't know how to do it."
Come up here. Just all you have to do is just raise right up. Listen to
the Holy Spirit. That's the way that these things work. It's just
listening to Him. He promised it. Just as He promised to do these
things in the last days, He promised to save the lost.
You say, "Well, I belong to the church, Brother Branham." That ain't
what I'm asking you.
I'm asking you now, "Are you saved? Are you a Christian?" If not, come
up. Come up, I ask you in Christ's Name, come...
... trust Him
That's it, come right in. Come right on around the altar now, we're...
He will save you, He will save you,
He will save you now.
What do you have to do?
Just only trust Him, only trust Him,
Only trust Him now;
He will save you, He will save you,
He will save...
That's right. Come right on, friends, come right on. Every Christian
pray right now. Remember, people might come... This might be the last
opportunity they'll ever have. This might be... If He can discern the
thoughts of the heart, He tells me. And it's true. Many in here...
Don't let Satan deceive you, sister, brother. Don't let him do it.
Please don't. Receive God's Token tonight. Will you come now?
(Sure.) Only trust Him, only trust Him,
Only trust Him now;
He will save you, He will save you,
He will save you now.
220 O God, I pray that in Jesus' Name that You will look down upon this
audience and will comb it through. I pray that the great Holy Spirit
Who is here now present, showing Jesus Christ the same yesterday,
today, and forever... Lord, there's no chance for Satan to try to rub
around it. Here You are--You're identifying Yourself, standing here in
human flesh among us, and identifying Yourself by the Token that would
identify You. The Token is to identify Jesus Christ, His resurrection.
And here It is now, identifying Him doing the same that He did when He
stood here in a corporal body. O Father God, may the people see and
realize how these Scriptures and things are perfectly fulfilled.
May every soul come now, Lord. Go once more, Father, and speak to the
hearts, so I'll be sure, that... I've asked You, and I know You're
going to do it. You always answer our prayers. Speak once more, Lord.
I'm sure there was some felt that they should, but they just didn't do
it. Grant it, Lord, that they'll come now. Through Jesus' Name, I ask.
222 With our heads bowed, rise (Won't you?) and come now while we sing
it again now? And come right out, walk out. I just feel down in my
heart... That's never wrong. See?
Only trust Him, only trust Him,
Will you raise up, come down here and stand around the altar? Don't...
This might be the last opportunity that you ever have. If that little
question's been in your mind, don't--don't take no chance. Don't take
no chance, friend...?... See, the rains come, and the people didn't
know it. The death angel struck; the people didn't think it was so.
Moses told them it was going to happen. He was clearly identified by
224 You say, "But I'm Presbyterian, I'm Methodist, I'm Baptist, I
don't..." That don't have nothing. See?
Come. I'm asking you to come now. Come, and really receive Him.
Don't... You'd be real sure if you checked your tires before you drove
fast, check your car before you take your vacation. Won't you have the
identification of the resurrection within you? Won't you come? God
bless you. That's fine. Six, seven, eight more has come since then. I
just hate to close it like that. Will you come? God bless you, young
fellow. Bless you, lady.
He will save you, He will save you...
God bless you, young man. You want to know? You were one of them.
Only trust Him,
Now, isn't that something? You see, the Holy Spirit is never wrong.
It's perfectly right.
He will save you, He will save you,
He will save you now.
228 Are you real sure now, as the music continues on, if you will,
slowly, could you trust Him? Could you just take Him at His Word?
Say, "Lord, I've always wanted that close fellowship, that real
something. I--I really want it, Lord, but I see so much mockery of it."
Why, sure. That's Satan. See, he does that to throw you off the track.
"I--I've seen those who claim..." Now, that--that is... See, it only
shows there's a real one somewhere. If you find a bogus dollar, it's
just because it's made off of a good one. See, see?
Won't you come, really trust Him for the Holy Spirit, when He's so
identified here before you, identifying Himself here before about three
thousand people, showing... He did it before about five hundred
thousand in Bombay. He did it before around a hundred and fifty or
seventy-five thousand in Durban, South Africa, where thirty thousand
blanket natives come to Christ at one time. The Gospel's about finished
in America, friends; she's about over. If you believe me to be
connected with God, remember that is true. Won't you come now?
231 I'm going to ask our minister brothers here, if they'll come off
the platform and stand around here with this prayer for the people.
The rest of you may bow your heads, unless you want to come while
they're just standing around the altar here. I'm going to pray with you.
I want you men to get down there because these people will become
members of your churches. They've come, accepting Christ now.
Won't you come stand around, anyone else would like to come at this
time? The altar's still open. They might not... It might be too late,
235 Just think, the great Holy Spirit coming, identifying Jesus Christ
alive after two thousand years. See, the very nature of Him doing the
same thing as He promised it would be done. That's right.
I'm so grateful for you, friends. You're that eleventh-hour people
standing here, just getting in. I'm so glad you come. Each one of you
remember, it was God who told you to come. Humanly, you wouldn't have
done it. But God told you to do it.
237 Now, while these brethren here and I'm praying, may the... If the
ministers over here... Sure, any ministering brethren come here. You
have churches and things around here, come gather around with this
people. These are people that strayed, some of them. Some of them are
coming for their first time, and they're standing here now. Walk right
up among them, pull right in among them. Just move yourself right in.
Tell them "I'm Pastor So-and-so. I'm here to pray with you, brother. I
love you. I love you, and I'm here to pray with you."
Would some of you come up this way, come up this way. There's a room in
here. Some of you, up this way, just... That's it, move right in among
the people. Say, "I'm Pastor So-and-so. " Put your hand on somebody's
shoulder. Say, "I come to pray with you, dear sister, dear brother. I
come to help you to Christ." Move right in now, say, "I'll be glad to
do anything for you I can." We're going to pray now.
240 I've asked the congregation if they'll bow their heads with us now,
while we go to prayer.
Each one of you pastors get you a person. Get somebody that you got
your hands on. Each pastor get among the people, so you got your hands
on somebody. That's it.
Each one of you confess that you've been wrong. And remember, that same
Jesus now is right here. So help me, that Light is right here among us,
Jesus Christ. Just ask Him to forgive you, and God will cleanse you
from every sin. Stay right there now, and the pastor will lead you
right to repentance and right on to the Token. And this will settle it.
243 Lord Jesus, we bring to You tonight, Lord, all these people...?...
for the glory of God, that You heal each and every one of them for Your
Father, this audience, we see You so clearly identified by Your Word,
identified as the Person of the Lord Jesus here in the form of the Holy
Ghost, moving through the people, discerning the thoughts that's in
their hearts, healing their sickness and calling them to repentance,
the great mighty Son of God. I give them to You, Father, as Tokens of
their faith in Your--in Your predicted Word, the Word that You said
that You'd... I trust, Lord, that You'll confirm It to them. They are
yours. They're love gifts. I give them to You, Father. In Jesus
Christ's Name, save every one of them, Lord. Fill every one of them
with the Holy Ghost. Grant it, O eternal God. Let Your Spirit and mercy
be upon them for Your glory.
