1164 Oh, my. Apply the Token. That's what it means to us. We expect the sacrifice to give us Life, and it does. Then it gives us the Token, and we apply the Token, which is the seal until...Being partakers of this.
2Now, let me just for a moment, let's back up and we want to know what it means to apply the token. He says we must apply it. So we know the Token is the Holy Ghost, Christ in you. But notice he says he gives it to us to apply it.
3Token the 64-0308 P:70 He said in John 14:12, "He that believeth (not he that maketh believe)--he that believeth in Me, the works that I do shall he do also." Is that right? Someone said, "'Greater shall ye do.'" That's right. Said, "Well, we preach the Gospel, that's greater."Just do the things He done; that'll prove it to me (See?), then we'll talk about the greater. I can show you the greater things He's doing now than He did when He was on earth, and that's not just preaching the Gospel either; that's in signs and miracles. It's not time for it. Just believe. And may the God of heaven, Who raised up Jesus Christ from the dead, and has presented Him here alive to us after two thousand years, identify this message that it's correct. The Token's got to be applied.
6The word apply or applied is a verb and it is used to describe an action we take with something. Apply or applied means 1. to make use of as relevant, suitable, or pertinent: 2. to put to use, especially for a particular purpose: 3. to bring into action; to use; or to employ: 4. to assign to a specific purpose: 5. to put into effect: 6. to devote or employ diligently or with
8Brother Branham said in his sermon, Token the 64-0208 P:60 "We read in Ephesians 2nd chapter and 12th verse, about what God said about us when we apply 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.
9And then he also takes us to Hebrews 9:11-14 tells us again the same thing, not dead creeds, but a living Token. 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.
13Token the 64-0208 P:41 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.
15"They must believe... They were... They believed... They must have believed they were safe in that great wall 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 Token has got to be applied. 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.
17Now, let's take another example from the bible. We have another witness when Joshua came to Jericho, and anyone who did not have the Token applied then, when that great earthquake took down the walls of that great city they all perished.
18The Token applied, then judgment follows. Now, we heard brother Branham last Sunday associate the Token being applied with John 14:12, because the Token is the very Life of Christ and John 14: 12 is the display or the applying of that Life in your life.
21Token the 63-0901M P:111 Remember, there's a lot of them come by, them women, that night, and say, "Hey, girlie, Lily, some of you, come on out; we're going to a party tonight.""Huh uh, I'm under the Blood. I'm under the Token to stay here. My love is to my Maker. Death is in the land tonight."And death is in the land today. Judgment is waiting; she's pending. Atomic, and hydrogens, and all kinds of disaster is waiting for the nations. And God is moving His church and showing all... We been keeping the Lamb up now for quite awhile, watching, seeing what He's doing, watching His nature and everything, but now the Token's got to be applied. It's got to be applied. It's the only thing. "Except a man be born of the Spirit and of water, He will in no wise enter in."
22Token the 63-0901M P:85 Now, we don't want to take any chance on it. You mustn't do it. The Message of the hour is a sign to the churches. It's sign to the people. Don't...Are you catching it? I hope on the tape, that they're doing the same thing (See?), and other parts of the world. See? The hour sign is here. There's a Token that's got to be applied, and no other time could it have come.
23Notice, no other time could it come like it has come, and yet we know that each example we see of the token being applied in Scripture, it comes right before judgment, adn then when the judgments come, only those who applied the token and had the token applied for them are saved.
24Token the 63-0901M P:68 Satan's throwed all kinds of counterfeits of shaking hands and evidences and everything like that. Forget it. The hour has arrived that the Token Itself, not some counterfeit, make-believe substitutionary, anything; the hour is here when the Token Himself is identifying Himself right among us and proving that He's the same Jesus yesterday, today, and forever, and He's right with the Word.
25Now, look, brother Branham is identifying the Presence of the Judge as the Token that must be applied. And what does a judge do? He speaks judgment. So why did the judge come? To bring judgment. Then how close are we tonight.
26When we see that John 14:12 is the applying of the token, and we know that we have have received the Token, the very life of Christ, and we have began to apply it that Life in our own Life, and we have learned to apply that Life and present it with the Word of God when we ask anything in His name.
27And that is exactly the pattern Jesus set before us, when he said, John 14:12 first and then the request in verses 13 and 14. Let's read...12 "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. 13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it."
28Notice, if "you believe" it is because "you have my spirit in you" Jesus is saying, and then if "you have my spirit you will do the works that I do" and then immediately after that he says, "anything you ask the Father in my name I will do it for you".
29Therefore, as brother Branham says, "It's got to be applied. A man that says that he's got the Token, deny this Word, then what about it? See, you can't do it. The Token's got to be there. When I... "The Blood shall be a Token unto you."Now, the Holy Spirit, the Life that was in the Blood is a Token unto you. (Get to it in a moment. See?) The Holy Ghost is the Token. The case is closed. Yes, sir.
31Token the 63-0901M P:65 What is sin? Unbelief. You've disbelieved the message. You've disbelieved the Word. You've disbelieved the witness of the Token Itself, when It's identified Itself in the midst of us. And have you disbelieved that? No matter how much you disbelieve It, It's got to be applied. You might say, "I believe it; I believe it. I believe It's the Truth. I accept It as the Truth."Then that is all good, but yet, It's got to be applied.
33Seed not heir with shuck 65-0218 P:30 There is no judgment to the royal, spiritual, predestinated Seed of Abraham, for they are predestinated to Eternal Life. They have accepted God's provided Sacrifice, and that Sacrifice which is Christ, the Word. "And there is therefore now no condemnation (St. John 5:24, if you want the Scripture)... There is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1)... walk not after the flesh, but the Spirit." And Romans 5:24, "He that heareth My Word (the word there is 'understandeth.' Any drunkard anything else can hear it and walk away.)... But he that heareth My Word (understands My Word) and believeth on Him that sent Me hath Everlasting Life and shall not come into the judgment, but's passed from death unto Life." Yes, sir. He that this great mystery of the God made known, understand, how that God was in Christ reconciling Himself to the world, how that He and the Father were One, how that the great mysteries of the fulfilling of God taking and bringing Hisself, manifested in the age of human beings, and in the strain of human beings, and in the company of human beings, to make His Word manifested in the day in the eastern rising of the sun and to do the same thing as the sun sets in the west, to make Hisself manifested in a Bride church, the Word made manifest. See? It will to... "He that understandeth (that is, to know), that's been revealed to him of Him that sent Me, has Everlasting Life and will not come into the judgment, but's passed from death unto Life."
34Thou son of David have mercy on me 61-0215 P:78 Our heavenly Father, Your Word cannot fail. It's eternal. You said, "He that heareth My words, and believeth on Him that sent Me, has Everlasting Life." You said so, Lord. "And will not come into the judgment (or condemnation at the judgment), but has passed from death unto Life," because they have believed on the Lord Jesus Christ, that He died in their stead, taking their sins.
35Now, back to The Token, 164 What a great thing it is. Being partakers, baptized by this one Spirit into that one mythical Body. Did I say that word right? Mystical--mystic, mystic body. Mystic body of Jesus Christ.See, the Holy Spirit said, "You're saying that wrong." A dummy, like me, but He said, "You're saying that wrong." I caught mythical, which is mystic body of Jesus Christ. See? The mystic body of Jesus Christ. I don't... We don't need an education; we need the Holy Spirit. He's the one; He's the one. See? That would might've stumbled somebody somewhere, some educator. And I hope he gets it right. The mystic body... It'll be for something, 'cause He wouldn't have said that. He's right here now. He's right here at the pulpit. He's right out there. It's Him. See?
36165 And in Him is no death; in Him is no sorrow; in Him is no weary; in Him is no sin; in Him is no sickness; in Him is no death. We are in Him. If Satan tries to hand you something like sickness, just take your Token and apply it. Oh, my. Take your Token and apply it, that you are a purchased product of Jesus Christ. The Token stands that your fare is paid. He says, "When you die, you're lost." Say, "You're wrong. I have the purchased product. I'm the purchased product. I have the Token." What is the Token? He knows what it is. Don't fool him, he knows what it is. Now, you might talk to some of these preachers, and they'd argue with you. Not Satan, he knows better. Oh, yeah. He come against it two or three times, you know, and made a mistake of temptation. Satan knows what you're talking about. Just show that Token; he'll fly. It's 'cause... What is it? It's a sealed product. He can't break that open and give something in there that's not right. Say, "Take your hands off, I'm sealed."
37166 Oh, my. A sealed product. Yes, sir. You are purchased. Hold the Token over your unmovable faith in His promise. Watch him go. "The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." See? Take that Token. That's what it's for. Satan's there to tempt you. He's in Egypt to tempt. Why, you know that they, when Rahab put that... That harlot put that string down that I imagine some of them soldiers laughed and made fun, and said, "That crazy old woman up there. She's off of her head. Look, she's got it bad. Ha-ha-ha-ha--why, did you ever hear of such? Why, Dr. Jones said down here, there's nothing to that." But there was, because the messenger from God brought the message and told them.
38167 Could you imagine the Egyptians say, "Look...?... Look at that crazy bunch of holy-rollers, putting blood... Ha, ha. Won't they have a mess to wash that off now. Oh, my, them big fine homes, all covered over with blood. Oh, such a stink. I'll bet you that'll be horrible in a few days. It don't mean a thing. You know why? Holy father so-and-so, said so." But there was; there was; it did mean something. It does mean something to us who believe it.Just remember, your unmovable faith that you got in this word... Now, you're not Eve no more. See? You're not one of these doubters, and well--compromising with Satan; you hold every Word of God. See, Eve said, "Well, the Lord said so." Satan said, "But, you know, the Lord surely won't do a thing like that to a nice person like you. Oh, you're so lovely." He... Oh, yes, He will too. He said He'd do it. "Well, my father was a minister; I've been a minister..."I can't help it. Without the Token, you're lost. The wrath is upon you (That's all.) without the Token. See? He said He'd do it, and He will do it. That just settles it. He says He'd do it. "Oh, I believe the days of miracles..." Yes, but He said it was. "I'm the same yesterday, today, and forever." See? That's just what He proves to be. Now, to us, we know it. To them, they don't believe it. But we do believe it. We know it is the truth. See?
39And it was just before judgment that the Token was to be applied. O, I hope you can see by the scriptures that God has opened our understanding to what it means to apply the Token. To Apply the Life , His life in our Life.
From his sermon, An Absolute 63-0127 P:40 "And Jesus said in John 14:12, "He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also." It's an absolute fact that Christ promised that. That's His Word. And we've got to believe that. Said, In St. John the 5th chapter and the 24th verse, "He that heareth My Words--My Words and believeth on Him that sent Me has Everlasting Life, and shall not come into the judgment, but's passed from death unto Life." That's absolute. That's it. Now, not him that maketh-believe, but he that believeth. See? Now, we've got to have an absolute, and He is that Absolute, and He and His Word are the same. We can't separate them.
42John 14:12 is for every believer as we see in 59-0628E - "Questions And Answers" 172 88b. Brother Branham,... Can any man do the works of Christ unless he was Christ? That's what it is, "Unless he was Christ?" Sure. Let's take Saint John, just a minute. Saint John the 14th chapter and I want you to look at this, now, if you can catch it right quick, Saint John 14:12, I believe it is. We'll get it right quick, and look what Jesus said about this. All right, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He," "whoever it is", "He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also." Any man, The man himself can't be Christ, but the works of Christ will follow every believer. See? He'll do the works of Christ in any man. "He that believeth in Me, the works that I do, he shall do." Not, "I shall do," "he shall do, he shall," not, "I." "But he believes in Me and has confessed his faith in Me and died out to himself and My Spirit dwells in him and he becomes a part of Me." Now that don't make him Christ. It makes him part of Christ with the rest of the Church. All right. He is not Christ, because that would be anti-Christ, you see. He would be taking away from Christ. But he can be, do the works of Christ, any believer. All right.
43Confirmation of the commission 62-0122 P:32 See, it's either whether you take what some organization said, some manmade theory said... They'll preach the doctrine of that theory. And then, that is their credentials to the deacon board or whatever it is, that they stand in good fellowship with that organization. I have nothing against that, understand, but I'm only defending what Jesus said. See? He said, "These signs shall follow them that believe." And Jesus said in St. John 14:12, "Verily, verily I say unto you (that's "absolutely, absolutely, I say unto you) he that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also." And how can a man believe that he is sent from God, and then turn around and deny the very commission that God said would... that would be the identification of every person that He sent out?
44Identification 63-0123 P:51 We've got to take the entire full Gospel. We must... And now, being that we have identified ourselves as full Gospel people, let's mold our character. We're invited to be molded in His Image, that we might reflect His Presence. "And the works that I do, shall you do also. The Life that I live, so shall you." We're invited by God to take Him as an Example, and let our character be molded like His. What a thing. My. Then when we let His character be in us, then we have become sons by having the mind of Christ: mind, which is His character. Your mind makes your character. "Let the mind," Paul said, "of Christ, this mind that was in Christ be in you." Let that mind of Christ be in you. It molds the character of a son of God.
46And we have seen the signs that Judgment is just around the corner. We've seen the four blood moons, we are witness that it has taken place. And that is two 2's, and 2 is a witness, therefore we have seen a double witness that the church which is represented by the Moon and was shown in the heavens to have completely darkened out, and when it did it was blood reed which signifies death. We have seen God's signs in the heavens that the church is dead.
47We have seed the pope come out of the United States on the day of the last Blood Moon. Now, when the Pope came to America in 1963 brother Branham said when the moon went into a total eclipse then, it was a sign of judgment.
49I believe we are at the end time, and I do not believe we will be here too much longer. The judgments are already sweeping across Europe and America. Our current administration is doing everything they can to provoke a war with Russia and China.
50Deuteronomy 28:43 The stranger (foreigner) that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low. 44 He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail.
51Obama is a foreigner, and he has risen up to be the head. And the Federal reserve bank is not owned by the American people, it's owned by several international Banks from England, Germany, France, Denmark and Italy.
52Brother Branham said in 1963, the judgments are now in the earth, and we are seeing them almost daily in the form of severe weather, earthquakes, and tornadoes, and flooding, and hurricanes, and volcanoes, and the economy, and the heathen invasions across Europe and America, and nation is rising against nation, and every man turning against his neighbors.
53And one of these days the Bible says that the earth will turn over, and the oceans shall raise so high the islands shall flee away, and the mountains shall melt. And it is on its way, because the token is now being applied, and that had to happen before the judgments could come.
54Malachi 4:1 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. Notice this Scripture speaks of a day that is coming that is full of death and destruction, and the next few verses tell us that God will send the Spirit of Elijah to prepare a people to escape it.
55And that preparation is not a mental preparation, but condition of the heart that will save them. And He promised that this ministry of Elijah will be to a special people, those who actually fear His name, a people who are ordained to receive a heart change.
562 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. 3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts. 4 Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. 5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: 6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
58Isaiah 2:10 Enter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty. 11 The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. 12 For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low: ...
59To save some time let me skip forward to verse 17 And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. 18 And the idols he shall utterly abolish. 19 And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth. 20 In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles (that is the big tunnel machines) and to the bats; (to those making great caverns and caves for men to hide in) 21 To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth. 22 Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?
60Isaiah 24:1 Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, (the Hebrew word for empty here means literally to depopulate) and maketh it waste, (annihilated) and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof. (Now, the word scattereth abroad not only speaks of disbursing the people, but also signifies a breaking apart of the people.) 2 And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him. 3 The land shall be utterly emptied, (utterly depopulated) and utterly spoiled: (plundered) for the LORD hath spoken this word. 4 The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth (it becomes feeble, weak) and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish. 5 The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof;(it is not only polluted, but corrupted in a moral and spiritual sense) because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. 6 Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left. 7 The new wine mourneth, the vine languisheth, all the merryhearted do sigh. 8 The mirth of tabrets ceaseth, the noise of them that rejoice endeth, the joy of the harp ceaseth. 9 They shall not drink wine with a song; strong drink shall be bitter to them that drink it. 10 The city of confusion is broken down: every house is shut up, (boarded up) that no man may come in. 11 There is a crying for wine in the streets; all joy is darkened, the mirth of the land is gone. 12 In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten with destruction. 13 When thus it shall be in the midst of the land among the people, there shall be as the shaking of an olive tree, and as the gleaning grapes when the vintage is done. 14 They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the majesty of the LORD, they shall cry aloud from the sea. 15 Wherefore glorify ye the LORD in the fires, even the name of the LORD God of Israel in the isles of the sea. 16 From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs, even glory to the righteous. But I said, My leanness, my leanness, woe unto me! the treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously; yea, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously. 17 Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are upon thee, O inhabitant of the earth. 18 And it shall come to pass, that he who fleeth from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that cometh up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth do shake. (look, all this shaking and destruction comes when the earth goes into a tilt because of the heavens opening up and the earth goes into a global shift. 19 The earth is utterly broken down, (that means to spoil by breaking in pieces) the earth is clean dissolved, (completely broken up) the earth is moved exceedingly. (totally off course) 20 The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed (tossed) like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, (cease to be as it was, to die) and not rise again. 21 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth. 22 And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit,(down in their underground cities) and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited. 23 Then the moon shall be confounded, (turn red) and the sun ashamed, (blackened out) when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.
