THE TRUE TOKEN VOLUME 1

Preached on 29TH December, 1994 At THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD ONITSHA By APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA THE SON OF MAN (THE LAMINATED HUMAN BEING) “Truth has no ubstitute” © BRIDE OF CHRIST MINISTRY WORLD-WIDE

 I am the Author of life, HE that knows the secrets of the heart. The beginning and the end, the Lord God Almighty. Believe it if you can…
— THE SON OF MAN
An excerpt from the Message: FOLLOW THE CLOUD, VOL. 1, PP. 3)
Let me give you your last consolation. In time past I used to tell you that any day you do not see the Son of Man, please weep. However, henceforth, I do not say so. I do not make that statement again. Rather, I am your consolation.
Believe it if you can, I AM THE RAPTURE. I am the One Who is going to deliver all of you into Paradise.
You were sealed long, long time ago but not all of you. What was sealed was in the Book of Life, the record where your names were documented in this generation was closed and the testimony sealed. That is the point of our consolation. The Lord has finally sealed us into the Ark. All we have to do now is to rejoice. No more; no less.
–SON OF MAN.
(I AM THE CONSOLATION OF THE BRIDE PAGES 51 AND 52 VERSES 4 AND 5; PAGE 98 VERSE 69.
PRAYER
It is the Promise of the Father, it is in Your Hand, whomsoever you willeth, him You will fill with the Holy Ghost. My duty is to place your Word right before the eyes of your people to let them know your mind concerning them as it is written in the Holy Scriptures.
2.          The confirmation is in your hands to confirm that what I have told them is the truth, that what is written in the Holy Scriptures is your Word; that the Promise of the Father is not only to us, but also to our children, our children’s children; to them that are afar off, as many as the Lord our God shall call.
3.          Therefore, O Lord, as we continue in this ministration, may nobody fall asleep; may we remain awake. If it means sleeping all through tomorrow provided we are certain we have received the Token, let it be so, O God.
4.          Every impersonation of the Spirit, we cast it away in Christ Name. Like you have written on the board oh God that we should make sure that we have received the TRUE TOKEN, I pray, Thee O God, may nobody receive false Token; may all of us receive the TRUE Token together so that on that GLORIOUS DAY, WE WILL ALL WADE THROUGH THE GATE.
5.          Thank You this day, oh God. Give Me enough strength, give My interpreter enough strength, feed us very well for the battle ahead is still great.
6.          Our little ones are included in the number also. I lift them up before You, spiritually, O God, transmit Your Spirit into their lives. Apply the TOKEN upon all of them. Just for your Name’s sake, move in a great way and mark all your people, O God. By the time this Message is over, may all of us receive the Mark of Christ which is the TRUE TOKEN. May nobody receive the mark of the beast. Thank you, O God, in Christ’s Name I pray. Amen.

THE PAINS OF LABOUR AND THE JOY OF DELIVERY
You know when the Holy Ghost comes down, it is a very thrilling experience. The Mark of Christ is the TRUE TOKEN. I will tell you many things the Prophet Braham said in the Message called, “Token,” before I will show you the Word.
2.          Note, We are like a woman under labour. When a woman is under labour the man is also under labour.  When a woman is under labour pain, the man is equally having labour pain. One thing is clear; the end result of that pain will be life on Earth. The end result of that pain will be life to be born on Earth and the moment that life appears, the labour pain stops. Nobody remembers it again, what follows is laughter.
3.          Thank God, we have medical doctors in our midst; we have nurses also.
4.          In childbirth, there are three stages of labour: when the early labour pain starts and eventually the woman goes to maternity home with the husband, the man is in a great expectation that he is going home with a baby, whether a boy or a girl. His expectation is very high; he does not  listen to what people are saying. All his attention is focused on the labour ward.
5.          What is more, if he notices any strange movement, his heart jumps into his stomach because pregnancy comes in different forms; also delivery comes in different forms, but in all, the man’s anticipation is that he must go home with a child, and that child must be a true child without deformity. It must not be a miniature human being but it must be a well-developed human being having all the organs of a human being, all the attributes of a human being must be there.
6.          Note, when that man is there and the woman is in the labour room; a type of the Church, groaning, travailing in pains and the man is somewhere shaking his legs with his eyes red. It is at that moment that the woman regrets being married, yet a little while, the pains will turn into laughter, that is, if the woman delivers a living child.
7.          However, where she could not deliver that child, maybe, as a result of her mistakes the child could not come out alive, that woman will be the most miserable woman on Earth. The man will look very sad because all of them are disappointed.
8.          I am speaking in types. If you want the True Token, pray that God will give you perfect understanding. I will give you some analysis. We are in a battlefield. Put on your spiritual jacket.
9.           All we have been labouring all these years, the Lord has gathered all of us to bring all of us to one level of faith because when my brother receives the Holy Ghost and I receive the Holy Ghost, that scripture will fulfill: “Brethren, although they are Gentiles, seeing they have received the same Holy Ghost which we received from the beginning, what then do we say? God has accepted them and has accepted us. We are now equal with them; no difference.” Is that not Bible?
10.      If the weakest Sister is filled with the Holy Ghost, she will attain the same faith with Saint Paul and in the RESURRECTION MORNING, when they will wear their Token, she will put hers on. You must get the Token; it is a must.
11.      I will define “Token,” but first of all follow these little explanations. All these years, we are just like a woman under labour pains. When a woman goes to the hospital to deliver her baby and her husband is around, watch many things that will happen there. If the nurse comes out jubilating, “Glory be to God!” the man will rise up and ask, “Has she delivered?” 
12.      If he hears “Congratulations, the water has come out.” That man must heave a very big sigh of disappointment. Did he go to the hospital because of water? Though, the same labour pain must be accompanied with water; you cannot avoid it.
13.      Now watch out, the man will look somehow disappointed, yet he has not lost hope. He knows that something remaineth, “Although I have seen water, it is a sure sign something is on the way.”
14.      The water has paved the way. The Word is the water, paving the way. Something is on the way. The Word does some cleansing. Note that water is for cleansing, water sanctifies, the same way the Word sanctifies and paves the way.
15.      Something is on the way; a vessel has been sanctified, that is, cleansed in and out. It will now be okay for the Master’s use, but the Master has not started using it to work.
16.      When you wash your bottle intending to use it for iced water, no matter how you wash it clean, as long as you have never poured water into it, you can never get iced water from it. Thus, you can be sanctified and still remain empty: “I do not commit fornication; I do not tell lies; I do not cheat; I do not do this and that,” fine, you have been sanctified. YOU ARE READY TO BE FILLED BECAUSE THE MOMENT YOU ARE FILLED AND YOU ARE CORKED, YOU CANNOT MAKE ANY NOISE AGAIN.
17.      How I wish I can demonstrate it. Whatever it will take Me to bring this Message to a level where everybody will understand, I will do it because if you do not understand, there is no way you can be filled.
18.      Empty jerry cans; you know they make a hell of noise. Why? They are empty, but when you fill them with water and throw them around, they will not make any noise. When you wash a rubber bottle intending to use it to get water. You have washed it clean but as long as there is no water in it, it will continue to make noise because it is empty, though it has been sanctified. Are you getting Me?
19.      That is why many of you in this Faith, although sanctified, you still have some filthy things; filthy thoughts. Why? You have been sanctified; you have been cleansed by the Word, that is, the fear of the Lord will not permit you to commit open fornication; it will not permit you to do open cheating, but because your throne, nothing is there, the thought will still linger in your hearts because what you have removed is just a moral aspect. That is sanctification.
20.      However, when you stop all those things; you hate evil. You have taken a decision. You will not go back to evil again. You are now ready. You say, “God, I have come to worship You. Heal me; use me.”
21.      After this Message, somebody must be broken into pieces; after breaking the person into pieces, he will be melted. Many of us in this Church are very stiff.
22.      If you want to re-mold a rubber, do not make the mistake of patching it. If you patch it, by and by, it must leak. What do you have to do? Break it into pieces, melt it. Let it go into liquid form; then re-mold it. After re-molding it, it will not leak again.
23.      Now watch that woman, watch the man, a little while, another nurse comes out and says, “Sir, congratulations.” The man will say, “Has she delivered?”  She says, “Well, blood has come out.” The man will say, “What are you talking? Did I come here because of blood? I came here to collect my baby. Whatever you are saying is nonsense!”
24.      Nevertheless, that is the second stage of the labour. You cannot deny it. What am I saying? The only Gospel that is dripping with blood is the Token Gospel because you do not get it anyhow.  You must pass through labour pains, you must travail, you do not pick it along the way. It will take you sleepless nights. It will put you in a state of emergency because in all your labouring, you are never a child of God until you have received the Token.
25.      Now, the man went there to collect his baby, not blood, not water. What if while he is waiting, somebody comes out and says, “Master, congratulations; your wife has delivered!”? The man will simply jump up. He does not want to know the gender. Why? Life has come out.
26.      We have preached the Gospel; we have seen signs and wonders; we have seen miracles, what is left? Preaching does not make one a child of God; signs and wonders do not make one child of God. What makes a child of God is the life. The life makes the difference. Until the life comes out, brethren, there is no hope.
27.      Why is the whole world travailing in pain and groaning? What have they been earnestly waiting for? The life of those people that will be called the sons and daughters of God.
28.      Romans 8: 19-21: For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God…”
29.      Why are they waiting for the appearance of sons and daughters of God? Look at what the Bible said:
30.      For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,
31.      Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.”  KJV.
32.      You see, the creatures themselves are still in the bondage of corruption and are waiting earnestly to be delivered into the glorious liberty of the sons and daughters of God. Do you think all the goats and fowls you eat are happy? Do you know that they have been groaning, travailing in pains, waiting for the day they will be delivered into the glorious liberty of sons and daughters of God?
33.      All the animals you kill in the forest, do not you know, from the beginning, they were not being killed so? And they are waiting for the day the real sons and daughters of God will come out so that they will stop dying.
34.      In the Garden of Eden, the Son of God was Adam; the daughter of God was Eve. They were living together with all the animals and they were friendly. THEY WERE NOT ENEMIES, BUT TODAY, BECAUSE MAN SINNED, CORRUPTION SET IN, ALL OF THEM ARE NOW IN BONDAGE OF CORRUPTION AND THEY ARE WAITING EARNESTLY UNTIL GOD WILL REPRODUCE HIS IMAGE AGAIN WHERE ANIMAL AND MAN WILL STAY TOGETHER WITHOUT KILLING EACH OTHER TO ENJOY THE GLORIOUS LIBERTY OF THE SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD, BUT TILL THAT DAY, THEY ARE ALL IN BONDAGE.
35.      When God created man, He created him in His own prefect image. When man fell away from God, he put on the image of a beast. When man is coming back to God, will he put on a different image?  A sure sign of resurrection is the restoration of the original Image of God. That is the much we can take there.
36.      What am I saying? All that we have been labouring for, this is the time we are going to crown it. It is now or never. We must be very, very sincere to ourselves.
37.      Now, what if you do not know what the true Token is all about? How will you know that you have gotten it? Some people in this Faith are like a man and his friend that went to hunt rabbit. Thus, they were digging to smoke out one rabbit. The other asked his friend to wait: “If this thing comes out from this hole, kill it.” He said, “Okay”. He asked him, “I think you know what it looks like?” He said, “Yes”.
38.      Then, the other person started digging and continued digging. As his friend was waiting, he saw evidence that the rabbit must be in the hole, but unfortunately, he dug and got to the place where his friend placed his foot; he doubted it. He said, “My friend, are you sure this rabbit never escaped through here? Check well.” He said, “What are you talking? I kept my eyes here, holding my machete. How can it escape?”
39.      He said again, “Look at the remnant of the food the thing ate there. Are you sure it has not escaped?” He said, “My friend, what are you saying? Do not make me angry. I said it has not escaped. I kept my eyes right here.” The other said, “Okay, let us stop the argument, maybe, I missed it.”
40.      A little while, his friend turned round and said, “Brother, let me ask you this question; do not be offended. This rabbit, is it like a sheep?” The man looked round and said, “Are you with your senses at all?” “No, I know why I am asking you. Is it like a goat? I have been watching.”
41.      The man digging then said, “But you said you know it.” “Yes now. Is it like a dog?” The man digging said again, “My friend, let us go! But you said you know it. Do not make me angry!”
42.      The other one said, “I know why I am asking. Let me ask you another one. Is it like a rat, but larger than a rat with very big ears and long dry tail? Is it like that?” The man digging said, “Yes now!”  then the other man said, “It escaped long time ago. It did not stay up to two minutes. Look at the footprints here.”
43.      You see, but he said he knew what it was and his friend relaxed. I hope some people are not like that now? Thinking you know what Holy Ghost is all about; thinking you know what Token is all about, then the preacher will relax, not knowing you do not even know it, let alone reaching your hand for it.
44.      For that reason, we are going to go a very lengthy journey; very lengthy journey. Gird up your loins. Before I will open the Scriptures, I will first of all open the Sermon Book. I want to read certain nuggets.
45.      “Is like going to the doctor to get medicine and then save it upon the shelf; if you go to get the medicine, get the medicine; if there is a disease bothering you and its remedy is supposed to help you, you take what it gives you and just the way it says, ‘deal it’ because sometimes, just a few minutes makes a lot of difference in the way you give it.”
46.      When you receive your medicine, do not put it under your pillow or else you will die. This is the only remedy for unbelief. When I open the Word, I will tell you what happened in the Apostles when the Holy Ghost had not come and what happened in them when the Holy Ghost came. The Holy Ghost makes the difference.
47.      Israel’s lamb; now down here that which we are thinking of where we are starting it is God saying to Israel, the blood of the lamb is a Token for you.’ Israel’s lamb slain was Jehovah’s required Token.”
48.      Note it. God never required any other thing from them. As many of them as will escape from Pharaoh, what God expected was the blood of the Lamb. Once it is applied, no other problem. When the angel of death will visit the land, they will all be secured.
49.        I may not take you too far in the TOKEN book because you were all commanded ahead of time to read it. Is that not right? I believe you have complied with the instruction. Let me stop there, otherwise, I would have read a lot of things there.  Let Me try my best to see what I can do. Amen.
