1Wednesday night we spoke on Identification, and showed the importance of our being identified with the Token. This morning I would like to continue in this same thought so that perhaps by looking at this subject using other words, it might sink into our inner being what brother Branham is trying to get across to us concerning the Token, which is the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.

2In paragraph number 30 Brother Branham tells us, "So, you see, when Jesus was baptized by John, and the Bible said, "And he saw the Spirit of God like a dove coming down upon Him." Therefore, if it had been a wolf, or if it had been any other animal, the nature of the dove could not have blended with the nature of the wolf. Neither could the nature of the dove blend with any other animal but the lamb. And those two natures came together. Then they could agree with each other.

3Now, brother Branham is making a case here that we have got to die to ourselves, if we expect the Spirit of God to rest within our mortal beings. You could never expect a Holy God to enter into an unholy vessel. So right there, you know that your spirit much be of such a nature as to be welcoming to Him.

4Ezekiel 36:26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. 27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.

5What Does it take to make a Christian 57-0113 33 Now, He taken, and what did He do? Give you a new heart, give you a new spirit, and then He puts His Spirit, His Spirit in you. It's just like... You don't have to go around and pretend that you're a Christian man. That new spirit brings new life. The Holy Spirit in your new spirit, in your new heart... Your new heart, your new spirit and the Holy Spirit goes right in the center of your new spirit, and your new spirit goes right in the center of your new heart.

6Why Some People can't keep Victory 57-0324 50 Yes. That's what we need today is experiences of the new birth. Now, I want you to watch the order that Ezekiel brought it in. He said, "I will give you a new heart, and I'll give you a new spirit, and I'll put My Spirit in you." I want you to watch; there's three of it. A new heart. "I'll take the old stony heart away." That's that old different heart you have. "And I'll give you a new spirit." Now, many times, and there's been a terrible mistake, the people has thought sometimes that that new spirit was the Holy Spirit. But it isn't; it's a new spirit. God gives you a new... Why, you couldn't even get along with yourself with your old spirit; how you going to get along with the Holy Ghost? God had to give you a new spirit so you could get along with His Spirit. And sometimes people...?... "A new heart, a heart of flesh, so you will receive it; then a new spirit in that heart, and then I'll put My Spirit in that." You see? New heart, new spirit, "and My Spirit," three things He spoke of. E-51 Now, many times we try to make that thing just say... Well, as soon as you get the new spirit, you quit your stealing, you quit your lying, things like that. You say, "Oh, hallelujah, I got it." And you find out the first time anyone crosses your path a little bit, oh mercy, what a difference. Sure. You blow up like a frog eating buckshot. But let me tell you, brother. That's the reason you never got God's Spirit. That's true. "Oh," you say, "he stepped on my toe; I'll just not put up with that." All right. That shows what you got in you. That's true. "I'll put a new spirit in you, and then I'll put My Spirit in you."

7Now, the heart is in the center of the emotions of the human being. Your heart is the middle of you. That's exactly right. So God puts a new heart in the middle of the old man, then He puts a new spirit in the middle of the new spirit, or heart, and puts His Spirit in the middle of the new

8Impersonation of Christianity 57-0120M E-29 And in this being the intellectual type of churches that we have today in America, and all over the world, when we get to that type of school, then the Christian, the believer, the church member, reading the Bible sees that he must try to act humble. He must try to be this way. But in doing so he only makes a carnal impersonation. Let that soak deep. A carnal comparison, he's trying to act something that he really isn't in his heart. In his heart he's thinking one thing, and trying to act another, which in real genuine language, that makes him a hypocrite
E-30 Jesus said, "You hypocrites, how can you speak good things, for out of the abundance of the heart speaketh the mouth." If you don't speak according to what's in your heart, your heart thinks one thing and you speak another, that makes you a hypocrite. The very word "Pharisee" means, "actor" They acted out their religion for they had a stony heart They come and said, "Good Master, we would see a sign from Thee to prove that you are what You said." Said, 'How do you call Me good, when there's none good but God?"

9Uncertain Sound 55-0731 75 There's where so many people today, is going to be so terribly disappointed at the day of judgment: to know that they've lived in church, to know that they have done good deeds, to know that they have treated their neighbor right, to know that they have been loyal to the people, loyal to the church, and in their mind have believed that Jesus Christ the Son of God and be condemned at the day of judgment. Jesus said, "Many are called and few are chosen. Straight is the gate and narrow is the way that leads to Life, and but few there will be that find it. "Now, to you people here this morning, I want you to set up and take notice to this. You're old enough now. You've heard enough Gospel preaching, till you ought to be able to get off of milk and to come to a real solid Gospel diet: come to a place where men and women ought to stand. Paul said, "When you ought to be teachers, why, you have to be taught to, yet" 78 Now, in the soul where the man lives, you are what you are in your soul, not in your mind, not in your reasoning. Not because you say, "I will have a better standing. 1 can associate with better company ff1 become a Christian." That's reasoning. See? You mustn't do that Don't do that Let it become from a new experience, a new Birth, something that's happened, not in the mind, but in the soul, that's taken all reasoning's away, and you become a new creature. And you're in Christ Jesus.

10GOD MAKING HIS PROMISE 56-1209A E-17 Now, if you're trying just to impersonate it, then it, you're just making a hypocrite out of yourself You see? 'Cause you can? do that. Christianity is something that has to come from the heart. Jesus speaking to the Pharisees, said, "Ye hypocrites, how can you say good things when out of the abundance of the heart speaketh the mouth?" Then if the heart thought one thing and the mouth spoke something else, it becomes hypocrisy. See? We must from our heart express exactly how we feel. We must express it from our heart And if we can't express the right thing, then keep still Don't say nothing about it And now, if the church ever gets to practicing that, they might have fewer members for a while, but they'll have better members while they're having it. God grant the day that when every man or woman will be and express just what they are.

11Exhortation on Healing 51-0501 E-45 We learned this, friends, that God knows what your heart is. See? And if you don't speak from your heart, then you're a hypocrite. Is that right? And I really mean it

12Word became Flesh and India Trip 54-1003M 223 Jesus said to the Pharisees, "You hypocrites. How can you say good things?" That's what made them a hypocrite; they thought one thing in their head, and expressed their lips with something else. A hypocrite is that. That's what makes a hypocrite. Said, "How can you, being hypocrites. For out of the abundance of the heart speaketh the mouth. You don't speak what you really think." And see what! mean? You must say what you think. If you don't think it, don't say it. See? Speak your words; let them be come from the bottom of your heart Like Jesus said of that tree, "No man eateth from thee" Why, there wasn't a shadow of doubt in I- whole heart, what that tree would wither away. Why? His heart was coming from pure from... It was the Spirit of God in Him, that was making Him that way, teaching those disciples a lesson. See what I mean? All right
225 Then let that be pure. Let your thoughts run pure, and your expressions pure. Live pure and be pure. Now, out of your heart proceedeth evil thinking, adultery, and all these different things; if that comes out of your heart, that's what's in your heart. But if out of your heart comes righteous, peace, love, joy, oh, my, then it's coming from a resource here that s made up of that See what I mean? It's made up of the Spirit of God here that's expressed Itself through the words, and what you say then will come to pass.
You See then, The hearts that we are born with are no good to begin with. And if that is so, then we are dependent upon God to give us a right heart. God must give us a new heart, for the heart we are born with is corrupt to begin with, then He gives us another Spirit and then His own Spirit.

13Ezekiel 11:19-21 And I will give them one heart, and! will put a new spirit wIthin you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh: That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God. But [ for them] whose heart walketh after the heart of their detestable things and their abominations, I will recompense their way upon their own heads, Saith the Lord GOD.

14Ezekiel 36:26-28 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will / put within you: and I will take away the stony head out of your flesh, and / will give you an head of flesh. And! will put my SpirIt within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do [ And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and / will be your God.

15PP 37 inter veil 56-0121 Notice. There is an intellectual faith. And there's a faith that comes from the heart. The old unbeliever said years ago, "When the Bible said, 'As a man thinketh in his heart... " Said, "That's crazy. There's no mental facilities in the heart" Said, "You think with your mind. There's no mental facilities in the heart." But last year they found that's wrong. God was right down in the heart, in the center of the heart, there's a little compartment where there's not even a blood cell in it, It's not in the animal heart, only in the human heart. And they say, it's the occupation, or the occupant of the soul The soul lives in the head. Then after all, God was right, when He said, "As a man thinketh in his heart."

16And I'd like to add, "So is he" And so this brings us to the last part of this question, what about the heart? Now this is very important that you understand about the heart as I just read this wonderful quote. Because "as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he."

1751 Hear ye Him 60-0712 Man ain't measured by muscles; that's beast. Man's measured by character. I seen men that weighted two hundred pounds and all muscle and didn't have an ounce of man in him. Throw a baby out of a mother's arms and ravish her, that ain't a man; that's a beast. That's brute. Man is character. There never was a man like Jesus Christ But the Bible said there was no beauty that we should desire Him. Probably a littIe, bitty Fellow, stooped in the shoulder or something... We all hid as it was our faces from Him. But He... There never was a character like that That's what real man is. You don't measure a man muscles, but by the bags of the knees in his pants where he's been praying. That's the way you measure a man, by character It's true.

18What does it take to make a Christian Life? 57-0113 Now, I want you to listen for a few moments before closing. I want you to notice one thing and watch closely now. Watch the order of the Scripture, "I will take away the stony heart and give you a new heart." Now, the heart is the dwelling place of the Holy Spirit "And I will give you a new spirit." I want you to watch the order. Now, many people get mixed up there. They think they got the Holy Ghost, but they just get a new spirit Watch.

19What does It take to make a Christian Life? 57-0113 "I'll give you a new heart, and a new spirit And then I will put My spirit.. "Now, the new Spirit God had to give you a new spirit, but that's a new spirit God give you so you could get along with the Holy Ghost. With that old spirit you had, you couldn't get along with your neighbor; you couldn't get along with yourself; so you know you couldn't get along with God; so God gives you a new spirit And many times under enthusiasm, and if you'll watch the life that it bears... I hope I'm not hurting, but / hope I'm uncovering. See? A lot of times you'd think that you'd have the Holy Spirit "Oh," you said, " sung; I spoke in tongues." Certainly. Being that close to it you might do all of that, but that isn't the Holy Spirit yet See? The Holy Spirit bears record of Jesus Christ Now, He taken, and what did He do? Give you a new heart, give you a new spirit, and then He puts His Spirit, His Spirit in you. It's just like.. You don't have to go around and pretend that you're a Christian man. That new spirit brings new life. The Holy Spirit in your new spirit, in your new head... Your new heart, your new spirit and the Holy Spirit goes right in the center of your new spirit, and your new spirit goes right in the center of your new head.

20Impersonation of Christianity 57-0120M Now, when you do that, and don bear the fruit of the Spirit, then you're in the new spirit You didn't use to do that; that's right. But God had to give you a new spirit. Why, the spirit you had, you couldn't even get along with yourself So how are you going to get along with God? So God had to give you a new head, not a patched up one, a new heart. That's your intellects that you think with, a new way of thinking. Then He give you a new way of thinking, "Yes, that's right....{ notice the new heart is a new mindset, a new way of thinking) Then He said after that, "Then I'll give you a new spirit" What's that? A new desire, "I want to do right" "Now, / know I'm a Christian, I got to... I'll smoke one more and then I'll throw it away. See? And I'll--I'll--I'll just see.. I--I--I'll just stay home tonight, and you know, I'll just..." all these little just, just, that's exactly.., Eve stopped just for a moment. That's all she had to do. But now, that's the new spirit Then notice the order of the Scripture. After you get a now heart and a new spirit, He said, "Then I'll put My Spirit.." See? Oh, what? That's the what the Scripture says here. That's the order, the pneumatics and numerical order of the Scripture: a new head, a new spirit, and then My Spirit. E-44 Then God's Holy Spirit.. God's new heart that He put in you, sets right in the center of you. That's your-your impulse, where you--you--your--your emotions goes out And the new Spirit sets right in the center of the new head. And God's Spirit, the Holy Spirit, sets right in the center of your new Spirit, and there It controls your emotions. -69 But to accept it, and to have a new heart, a new spirit, and His Spirit, part of the Logos in you controlling your emotions... And when He coos through His Word, you coo back and answer to Him. "Jesus Christ the same, yesterday, today, and forever..."

21Impersonation of Christianity 57-0127A Yes, watch the order of the Scripture. "I will take away the old stony head, and I'll give you a new heart." That's the first order. Some of them stop on that first order. Now, that's... You are--you're just getting started. Then He said, "I'll give you a new spirit." There's where a lot of you Pentecostals fail You had to have a new spirit Oh, you felt good and you felt like that, "Oh, wel4 I just, oh, I feel fine. I--I--I couldn't have it." Well, you just got started. You're just getting fixed up now to just... You're just coming in line. He had to give you a new spirit. Why you couldn't get along with yourself with the old spirit So how could you get along with God's Spirit? So He had to give you a new spirit.

22Matthew 13:15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with eyes, and hear with ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

23So we are dealing with the heart as the receptacle of the Soul. Then the heart and its condition is very important because of the influence it plays on the condition of the soul.

24The Bible tells us, "Raise up a child in the way they are to go and when they get old they will not depart".

25Therefore, if you raise up that child in a condition or atmosphere of unbelief, it will have a very strong influence upon what that Child will believe concerning the Word of God. A child raised up in a very irreverent home will have a much harder time coming to grips with his need for salvation than one who is raised up in a home where love, and respect for God are taught.

26And the five fold ministry can not give you a revelation, but they can prepare your mind to receive revelation from God. And you parents can prepare the minds of your children to receive the Word of God as well. That is your duty before God as a steward of your household.

27Deuteronomy 6:4 Hear, 0 IsraeL The LORD our God, the LORD is one. Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. (and how do you do that? God says,) Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.

28Notice he says, Bind them on your foreheads, keep the Word always before you.

29And concerning this brother Branham said, Blasphemous Names pg. 23 " Coming to your mental faith, right here, comes the Holy Spirit; coming down into your mental faith making it a Spiritual Faith. Then the Spiritual Faith only recognizes the Word."

30And so, in looking at this condition of the mind, we see that God has come down in this hour to bring about a change of our mind that we might receive His mind.

31The apostle Paul said, "Let this mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus."

32And we also know in Colossians 3:4 we are told, that "when Christ Who is our Life shall appear, then we shall appear with Him in the same Glory or the same opinions, values, and judgments, which is as Paul earlier said, having the same mind as what was in Christ.

33So then, if it is a condition of the mind, then it must first come to our mind, before it can move down into our heart and soul and take over the very ambitions and desires of our heart.

34That's why the scripture tells us, "where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."

35In Luke 6: 45 we read, "A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good: and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil; for of the abundance of his heart the mouth speaketh."

36And so here we find the Scripture telling us that our hearts will only reflect the real treasure that lays inside of it, and it will show what our treasures really are in the things that we talk about.

37From the message Is Your Life Worthy Of The Gospel PP 151, Brother Branham said, "the things that you think on, the things that you do, (the actions), the things that you talk about creates an atmosphere!"

38What your mind is feeding upon is only a reflection of your Spiritual condition which is only a reflection of your Eternal destination. Gods Elect will hold His Word as their treasure, and it will reflect in their thoughts and actions as well.

39From Enticing Spirits brother Branham said, "you let me see what a man reads, let me see what he watches, listen to the music he listens at, and I can tell what spiritual condition he is in." He said, "because that's your appetite!'

40From What is the Holy Ghost PP 31, brother Branham said, "You let me talk to a man for two minutes; I can tell you whether he's received the Holy Ghost or not So can you. It separates them; It's a mark, It's a sign. And the Holy Spirit is a Sign. And any child that refused circumcision in the Old Testament, which was a foreshadow of the Holy Ghost, was cut off from amongst the people. He could not have fellowship with the rest of the congregation if he refused to be circumcised. Now, pattern that to today. A person that would refuse to receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost can have no fellowship among those that has the Holy Ghost You just can't do it You have to be a nature. Like, my mother there used to say, "Birds of a feather flock together" Well) it's an old proverb, but it's a true one. You don't see doves and crows fellowshipping. Their diets are different; their habits are different; their desires are different. And that's the way it is with the world and with a Christian when you have been circumcised by the Holy Spirit, which means to cut off a flesh.

41And so we see that there is a certain diet that we partake of. A crow can eat just anything, nothing hardly will bother him, but a Dove can only eat certain kinds of food. That's his nature. To eat like a Crow would kill it. And Ill tell you I believe that with all my heart. I heard a tape other night of a certain preacher in this message, and all he did was holler and scream and yet nothing was being said. I couldn't stand it.

42THIRST 65-0919 there is a control tower in your soul, that tells you the spiritual things that you have need of, something in your spirit, and, and you by this can tell what kind of a life is controlling you. When you-when you can see what your desires are, then you can tell, by that, what kind of something that's in you, that's creating this desire that you have. See, there is a certain thing that you thirst for, and it--and it can tell you in your soul what this desire is, by the nature of the thirst that you have. I hope that you can understand that.

43So what we are looking at here is the fact that God has made us to receive His Word with our minds first and then He will anoint the understanding He has given us and t then drops down into our Soul and becomes a Spiritual Revelation. So we are dealing with the mind here and that is why we see Brother Branham pointing to the deteriorating condition of the minds in the people.

44Now, as I have said, the Soul is that part of man that identifies the man. It is His very Life, and nature of the Spirit. When we read I Thessalonians 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and [ pray God] your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

45We see that the word for Soul here is the Greek word, Psuche which is also translated as the word Life. When Jesus said, he that will lose his Life for my sake shall save it, he was using the word Psuche that is also used as the same word for your soul as we see in I Thessalonians 5: 23 and so many other scriptures.

46And remember your soul is the nature of your spirit.

4731 Now, do you see predestination? It was a Lamb when He come there. See? See, it was a lamb when it was brought, it was a lamb. It was borned a lamb. It was raised up a lamb. See? Therefore, that's the only kind of a true Spirit that can receive the Word, that can receive Christ. Rest of them try. They try to get it, and put the Spirit of God upon a wolf (See?), angered, ill, mean. It won't stay there. The Holy Spirit just flies right away. It will not do it.

4832 What if that Dove had come down, and instead of it being a Lamb there, would been some other animal? It would've quickly took its flight and went back. See? But when It found that nature that It could blend into, It just become One. And then, the Dove led the Lamb; and notice, It led the Lamb to slaughter. Now, the Lamb was obedient to the Dove. See? No matter where it led, it was willing to go.

49Now, the problem that I see is that many who claim to believe this Message think that because they have the right doctrine or theology, that means they have the Holy Ghost. But let me tells you something. And I want to make this as clear as I can. And I am not saying this to boast, because their is only one we boast in and that is God. But to set the facts straight, I will compare my record with anyone's for having taught the doctrine around the world. I know no other that has taught as many ministers the doctrine, (over 3,500) and I know no other whose sermons have been translated into as many languages as mine have been (11 languages in all), so I think I can speak here with some authority when I say, "it's not about what doctrine you know, It's about what Life you are reflecting." And if you are not reflecting the same Life that William Branham reflected, in the same way he reflected it, then I don't care what doctrine you have and how well you know it, you have nothing in God's opinion but sounding brass and tinkling of symbols.

50Because if you have the doctrine only in your mind, but it is not radiating from your heart, you haven't got anything.
1 Corinthians 13:1 The Voice What if I speak in the most elegant languages of people or in the exotic languages of the heavenly messengers, but I live without love? Well then, anything I say is like the clanging of brass or a crashing cymbal. 2 What if I have the gift of prophecy, am blessed with knowledge and insight to all the mysteries, or what if my faith is strong enough to scoop a mountain from its bedrock, yet I live without love? If so, I am nothing.

51The Message; So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.
Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.
Love doesn’t strut,
Doesn’t have a swelled head,
Doesn’t force itself on others,
Isn’t always “me first,”
Doesn’t fly off the handle,
Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn’t revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.
8-10 Love never dies.

52So we are looking at the nature of God, for God is Love, and if we are born again we take on His own nature.

53Law having a shadow 54-1203 P:70 And every man that's ever borned of the Spirit of God, takes on a nature that he can't digest the world no more. "For if you love the world, or the things of the world, the love of God's not even in you." And, brother, if you still love the world and professing to be God's child, for the sake of your own soul, find a place at the altar and pray through until God takes the world out of you. For He has perfected forever those that are sanctified or cleaned by the Holy Spirit, then we are in perfection. The law having a shadow of things, not even the real things to come, with them sacrifices can never make the believer perfect. But a believer once coming into Christ, and by one Spirit baptized into that Body, He has perfected forever those that are in Christ Jesus. Then the things of the world... See? And He that... The worshipper once purged has no more conscience (or the right interpretation of that), has no more desire of sin. For the worshipper once purged has no more desire or conscience of sin. He doesn't even want to sin to... He will do things wrong. And as soon as he does it, he will confess his sins right there and say, "God, forgive me; I didn't mean to do that. You know it, Father." God never sees it, but He has an advocate. He has a confession and he makes it. But the man who goes ahead and sins and says, "Well, I belong to a church; don't make any difference," it shows that right in him proves that he hasn't got what he says he's got. And that reminds me of an interview some reported had with one of the persons running for president. They asked the candidate if they ever asked God for forgiveness for anything they did wrong, and their answer was "no", If I think I did something wrong I always make it right, I don't need someone to tell me I did wrong". That person has no clue about God, and if that person doesn't even know how to live their own life, how do they think they could run the nation?

54Brother Branham then quotes James 3:11 and says, "No, sir. You can't draw bitter and sweet water from the same fountain. That's right.

55Cruelty of sin 53-0403 P:20 "Then He breathed into him the breath of life, and he became a living soul. So the soul of man is the nature of the spirit. Now, when you're reborn, you don't get a new spirit. You get a new nature of that spirit. It's the same spirit, but a new nature of it. You take two men, stand them together, both look alike; and one of them is a sinner, and one of them is a Christian. One man say, "I got a spirit the same as you have." See? But one of them is a different, his soul, his nature's different. He's been changed.

56Token the 63-0901M P:40 Now, there's a life, a blood, a life, and a soul in the life. The soul is the nature of the life. Therefore it had no certain nature. It was an animal. Therefore, the blood stood for a token that the life had been given. But in this glorious place, under this covenant, there is a difference between the Blood and the Life. The Token for the believer today is the Holy Ghost, not a blood, a chemistry; but it is the Holy Spirit of God. That is the Token that God requires of the church today. God must see this Token. He must see it in every one of us. Therefore, as the evening shadows are appearing, and the wrath is ready to be poured out from on high upon the ungodly nations, and upon the ungodly unbelievers, upon the professors without a possession, upon these things... And I've tried to unfold myself and live right among it to see where it was standing before I said these things.

5733 I wonder today, when God leads us to a life of complete surrender and service to Him, I wonder if our spirits then sometimes don't rebel, kinda showing that: wonder if we are lambs. See, see? A lamb is obedient. A lamb is self-sacrificial; it doesn't claim its own. You can lay it right down and shear the wool off of it (That's the only thing it's got.), it never says anything about it, just sacrifices everything it's got. That's a lamb. It gives everything to its, gives everything away, itself and all it is. And that's the way a real Christian is. If they're self sacrifice themselves, (that's self sacrificial) caring nothing for this world, but giving all they got to God. See?

58Now, notice we have been showing quote after quote and Scripture after Scripture that God requires us to have the same nature that He has if we are to be received up into His Presence. And it takes dying to self first, that is what you do, that is your new spirit, which is not you getting a different spirit, but it is you changing your own spirit. Your spirit is now a Welcoming spirit, which is not the Holy Spirit, but it is your own spirit changed by your dying out to your own self. Then when you have totally died to your own self, your nature becomes like a lamb nature which is willing to be led, then and only then God will come into you with His own Spirit and lead you like the Dove leading the lamb. But you must have a lamb-like spirit within you before God's Dove-like will come in and lead.

59Notice that brother Branham makes this very clear in the next paragraph, 34 And now, this was a perfect Lamb: Christ was. And then through the shed blood of this lamb, the natural lamb in Egypt, the blood was applied. And when it was, it stood for a token. Then what would the Blood of this Lamb stand for?(he's referring to Christ now) See? The Token that we are dead to ourselves and identified with our Sacrifice. See? Then the lamb and the Blood and the person becomes identified together: the Sacrifice and the believer. See? You are identified in your life by your Sacrifice. See? That makes you what you are.

60Now, remember, I brought this out last week, the word "Identified" that brother Branham is speaking here according to our dictionary means: "to cause to be, or become identical." The second definition is: "to conceive as united in spirit, outlook, or principle. And the third definition in our dictionary is: "to be" or "become the same as"

61Therefore with this understanding let's see what brother Branham says next.

6235 Then the blood was a token of our identification. The blood identified that the worshipper had slain the lamb, and accepted the lamb, and applied the token to himself, that he was not ashamed. He didn't care who saw it. He wanted everybody to see it. And it was placed in such a position, that everybody passing by could see that token. See, many people wants to be Christians, and they like to do it secretly, so nobody would know that they were Christians. Or the associates they run around with, some of them would think, "Well now look, I want to be a Christian, but I don't want so-and-so to know about it." See? Well now, you see, that's not Christianity. Christianity has to display its Token (See?) publicly, in public life, at the office, on the street, when trouble is around, anything, in church, everywhere else. The Blood is the Token, and the Token must be applied (See?), or even the covenant is not in effect. The blood was a token or an identification, identifying this person has been redeemed.

63And the Life of Christ in the believer is your Token that you are identified, and as Paul said, in Colossians 3:3 "you are dead and your life is now hid with Christ in God". 4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

64You must become your revelation. You must manifest your revelation. Abel offered unto God a bleeding dying lamb, and then Abel became a bleeding dying lamb. Jesus was the lamb slain before the foundations of the world, that was His revelation. He said, "for this purpose I have come into the world. He then became His revelation. What is your revelation, are you an adoptable, obedient son, heir of all thing? Then step into it.
