THE TRUE TOKEN VOLUME 2

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 substitute” RIDE 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)
TOKEN; Token means an infallible sign—the sign that can never disappoint. Token means a mark of ownership, a mark of approval. Token, a sign that can never fail. 
When you know the importance of Token, you can never stay without making sure that God has given you that infallible sign, otherwise, you labour in vain. You may be a Preacher, you may be a Prophet, you may be an Apostle. That has nothing to do with it. It is upon this true Token that we are all equal in the sight of God.
GOD IS GOING TO JUDGE ALL OF US BY ONE STANDARD. WHAT IS THAT ONE STANDARD? HAVE YOU RECEIVED THE HOLY GHOST SINCE YOU BECAME A BELIEVER? THERE IS NO CHILD OF GOD WITHOUT A HOLY GHOST
–SON OF MAN.
(THE TRUE TOKEN VOLUME 1 PAGE 50, VERSE 50-51  

1
THE HOLY GHOST MAKES THE DIFFERENCE
I thank God. I love the atmosphere in the camp. It was exactly what I prayed for. I said, “God, my brother told Me that he is new in the Faith, that he is not used to all these noises that people make; that it disturbs him. God, tonight, may they never make such strange noise. May they say Amen by revelation so that every soul must be blessed.”
2.           If I teach you rightly, you will receive the Holy Ghost which is your true Token. That is why some people, after William Branham baptized them, he said, “Wait, I will counsel you so that you will receive the true Holy Ghost.” Counseling means teaching.
3.           If you are not properly taught, you can trample upon the Holy Ghost. Many hearts will settle after this Message. There are people that do not fear death anymore. From the sacred move of God, they are ready to die. I know women in this Church; I know our sisters in this Church, nothing on this Earth can stop them from prophesying. They will rather choose to die. It is not the work of man. I know others that will say like Mama Nwakaobi, “It is better for me to be excommunicated so that I can have my rest.”
4.            There are people like that here, saying something like that: “Everyday, we pay ten Naira, ten Naira. Everyday we pay twenty Naira. What type of thing is this?” Do not worry, when we go, the whole money in the world will be your own. I love where the whole thing is going.
5.           Galatians 3:2-5, “This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the Law, or by the hearing of faith? Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?...”
6.           They could not receive the spirit by keeping the Law. The Holy Ghost is received by hearing the Faith. What is the faith? The faith of Christ. Whatever I am saying now I am only establishing a faith inside man. If I can succeed after this Message in establishing this faith in all of you: THAT CHRIST IN YOU IS THE HOPE OF GLORY, I think I have done the greatest job.
7.           Verse 3-5: “…Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh? Have ye suffered so many things in vain? if it be yet in vain.
8.           He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?” KJV.
9.           You have the answer. It is in your hand now. All along, is there anything we can boast of in this Church? Yet the Spirit of God has been in our midst. He that has been doing all these great signs and wonders which we heard during rehearsal, did He do those things because we have done anything good? Did He do them because we have merited those things? Is it not because of our faith? Faith is expressed in the Spoken Word. Didn’t He confirm it saying: “HE IS MY WORD AMONG MY PEOPLE.”? That is the word of faith.
10.        Acts 8:14-17, “Now, when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John.”
11.        Brethren, note, as long a God lives, we are praying for Apostles to come up. Meanwhile, it has pleased the Lord that we have only one Apostle that is being vindicated. Do not deny people of Holy Ghost baptism. No matter how you lay hand on somebody, if he is not approved by the Word of God, you are wasting your energy. God is not the God of confusion. He does His things in a very orderly manner. God is not confirming the Apostle; the Apostle is just obeying God’s Word and God is confirming His Word. That is all.
12.        As long as God did not plan it for Evangelists; He did not plan it in the pastor’s ministry or in the teacher’s ministry, if you do it, you are writing a new Bible. God will indict you and call you a liar; that He did not say so. When the Apostles in Jerusalem heard that some people in Samaria had received the Word of God, they sent unto them some apostles. Who? Peter and John.
13.        Acts 8:15, “Who, when they were come down, prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Ghost.” KJV.
14.        Were Peter and John the people that baptized them? Why couldn’t they receive the Holy Ghost through the people that preached to them and baptized them?
15.        If it is not God’s Word it is not approved. I do not know the distance between Jerusalem and Samaria. You may say, “Well, we are at Abuja; we are so, so and so place.”As far as the Apostle hears about it, you have done your own duty. If He fails to go, God will hold Him guilty because that is His Commission: “Preach the Word; he that believeth, baptize him.”
16.        Inform the Apostles; if they fail to go because it is too far and they do not have money for transportation, leave them. On the last day, God must judge them. Do not try to do God a service outside His Word. You cause more harm than good. Check Acts 9:1-19.
17.        Acts 11:15-17, “And as I began to speak, the Holy Ghost fell on them, as on us at the beginning. Then remembered I the word of the Lord, how that he said, John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost.
18.        Forasmuch then as God gave them the like gift as he did unto us, who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ; what was I, that I could withstand God?” KJV.
19.        They are now equal with those people. The idea that they are newcomers does not arise. Thus, you can be baptized into this Faith now and you are filled with the Holy Ghost, you are as old as somebody who built this synagogue because what he has is what you have. What made him a Christ is what makes you a Christ. Before God, you are all equal. That is why we are not a denomination. Holy Ghost makes the difference. Holy Ghost binds us together.
20.        Acts 19: 1-6, “And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples, He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost…”
21.        Brethren, that question is very important. Although they have believed, but it is too essential that they must be certain of the true Token. They said, “We have believed but we have not received the Holy Ghost.” You see, the tendency is there that they will perish.
22.        When they said that they have not heard about it, they were sincere. If they had heard about it, whatever it took them to do that, they could have done it. St. Paul enquired, he noticed that their baptism was a wrong one. Are you in this Church, as long as your baptism is a wrong one, you cannot receive the Holy Ghost. The foundation must be amended. First of all He baptized them. After He baptized them, He laid His hand on them and the promise of the Father came down.
23.        Please examine the way you were baptized to see whether you actually believed before you were baptized or because you saw others going to the water then you joined them. The way you were baptized will determine whether you have the Holy Ghost or not. What happens when people receive the Holy Spirit? When a man receives the Holy Spirit, when a woman receives the Holy Spirit, what is the evidence?
24.        Number one, when people receive the Holy Spirit, they become certain that they are children of God. It is no longer, “I think” or “ feel.” They become certain.
25.        Romans 8:14-16, “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God…”
26.        For as many as are led by the Word of God, which is the Spirit of God, they are the sons and daughters of God. When a man receives the Holy Ghost, the Holy Ghost in him bears witness that he will no longer perish.
27.        “For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.” KJV.
28.        You have not received the spirit of bondage whereby you will be afraid again, whether you will perish or you will not perish. You have received the spirit of adoption whereby you can boldly call Him Abba Father. You are no longer a slave; you are no longer a servant. You are now members of the family. The Token purchased it for you. We will continue gradually.
29.        Galatians 4:6, “And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the spirit of his son into your hearts crying, Abba Father.”
30.        We are now members of the family; God sending His Spirit into us, whereby we can now call Him Father. If He is our Father and we are His children, living right with Him, we cannot perish again. This is because we are being led by His Word. He controls us because He is nothing but His Word.
31.        HENCE, THE BRIDE IS NOTHING BUT THE CHILDREN OF THE WORD. Number two, when somebody receives the Holy Spirit, he will start understanding spiritual things. A carnal minded man cannot understand the things of the spirit. You cannot understand mystery.
32.        First Corinthians 2:14-15, “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
33.        But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.” KJV.
34.        You see what happens when somebody receives the Holy Ghost? Is it speaking in tongues?  Is it dancing about? I said that after breaking it this way in this Message, I will not break it down this way again.
35.        Number three, he will have a very big insight into the understanding of scriptures. If you do not understand the Holy Scriptures or the Message in this Church, it is a sure sign that the Holy Ghost is not in you. It is a sure sign that even God hates you. But if God loves you, He will cause you to understand all things. Somebody may say, “Brother, what are you saying?”When God hates a man, He causes him to fall into fornication.
36.        St. John 14:26, “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.”  KJV.
37.        You see what He does! The forgetful spirit is a sure sign that you do not have the Holy Ghost. “I have forgetful spirit;”it is a sure sign you do not have the Holy Ghost because when the Holy Ghost comes into your life, He will remind you of all you have learnt from Me. It is not when Brother asks a question; you will open your mouth wide and close it; nothing coming out. You will say: “Brother, pray for me, it is forgetful spirit.”There is nothing like forgetful spirit. It is lack of Holy Ghost in a man or in a woman. It has narrowed down again. You must have the true Token.
38.        Having the true Token is not speaking in tongues; it is more than that. Anytime you forget the Word of God, doubt comes into your life. The moment you forget the Word of God for your hour, you deny Christ, you deny this Church; you deny the Word of God.
39.        When the disciples forgot His Word, when they heard that He had resurrected, the Bible said they believed not. Is it Bible? What caused it? They forgot His Word and they disbelieved Him.
40.        Second Timothy 3:16-17, “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.”
41.        When a man receives the Holy Spirit, praying becomes very easy. He does not labour to pray again. He does not dream while praying. He does not think while praying. Many people think instead of praying; when you say, “Let us pray”, many people think instead of praying. When you say, “Let us pray,” they kneel down, bend their heads, instead of opening their mouths to pray, they will be thinking about their kitchen, thinking about their business; thinking about their children. It is a sure sign that the Holy Ghost is not there. When the Holy Ghost is there, Holy Ghost does the praying.
42.        What happens when a man is filled with the Holy Ghost? Let us harness it in the scriptures.
43.        Ephesians 6:18, “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.” KJV.
44.        Did he say in the flesh? It must be in the spirit. What if the spirit is not there? Then you will pray in the flesh: you will be thinking of your kitchen, your business and at the same time kneeling down. Tomorrow you will say, “Brother, pray for me! I do not know what is happening to me!” Nothing is happening to you. The Token is not there.
45.        Romans 8:26-27, “Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.” KJV.
46.        Is it Bible? What if the spirit is not there? Holy Ghost baptism is not speaking in tongues, brethren. When a man is filled with the Holy Ghost, when a woman is filled with the Holy Ghost, he or she lives his or her life to please God. All the days of his life, his target is to please God.
47.        Romans 8:5-10, “For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh, but they that are after the spirit, the things of the spirit, for to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
48.        Because the carnal mind is enmity: for it is not subject to the Law of God, neither indeed can be; so then, they that are in the flesh cannot please God. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now, if any man had not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.” KJV.
49.        It is the mark of ownership. If any man has not the Spirit of God which is the Holy Ghost, even if he lavishes everything he has for this most holy Church he is wasting his time; he is wasting his energy. It is narrowing down gradually.
EXAMINE THE SPIRIT THAT IS IN YOU
50.        God help Me. I made a vow that I will never deliberately deceive this Church. If I make any mistake, it must be an honest mistake as a man, but I know my God, He must guide Me against mistakes all for your sake.
51.        If any man has not the Spirit of God, God can never claim him. God does not claim another man’s property. Examine the spirit that is in you; Brother Emeka, be very careful. What you are manifesting is not the Spirit of God. This Spirit of God must be manifested by everybody from Apostle to every member; even our little children must be controlled by God’s Spirit. IT IS A MUST! If you are in this Church, your children, you cannot train them in the fear of God with the Word of God, see your children perishing. My duty is to declare the whole truth to the congregation of the saints.
52.        Verse 10, “And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the spirit is life because of righteousness.” KJV.
53.        There was a man that visited our Church in those days. He found God proving His Word. He said, “Song leader, hold on. Let me go and ease myself,” proving your word.
54.        Where the Spirit of God rules, there is liberty. I love this Message. Equally, I love the environment. I believe the whole thing is sinking somewhere so that after this teaching, nobody will come to this Church tomorrow saying, “Hey! Hey! Hey!” thinking it is the Holy Ghost. Holy Ghost is more than that! Nobody will come into this Church to push the whole benches’. No, the Holy Ghost is more than that! Even if you pull down the pulpit, Holy Ghost is more than that. What is pushing you is the Spirit; anointing of the Spirit. It is narrowing down.
55.         Any area that is not clear to you, simply let Me know. I must surely stop and explain. I KNOW WHY I AM TAKING IT THIS WAY. THIS IS BECAUSE I AM HEADING SOMEWHERE. You cannot read it in any sermon book. Read sermon books from now till the next world, you can never get it. The Prophet mentioned it and told stories about it, but I am bringing your faith back to the Spoken Word, which is the mind of God.
56.        That is why William Branham prayed for this ministry (the Bridal Faith). He said, “When it will appear, it will spring up on its own. It must establish the Word of God in the hearts of men.”
57.        I have seen this way before. All you received so far is the level you prayed for.
58.        When people were filled with the Holy Spirit, they became more like Christ, the Sovereign Spirit, they behave like Christ. When people see them, they will see carbon copies of Christ on Earth. Our Prophet William Branham told us that the Bride Ministry is to reproduce Christ on two feet once again.
59.        You think Christ will come down from Heaven to come and walk on two feet? It is you and Me who will do that. It is not claiming. Somebody may say, “Brother, what are you saying?”I am saying what I am saying. Or do you want me to say what I did not say?
60.        Galatians 5:22-23, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.” KJV.
61.        Going extra mile, enduring all things, cherishing all things, accommodating every brother and sister in love, forgiving others as Christ has forgiven you; being ready to die for the brethren; opening your heart to hospitality without complaining, without murmuring. When a man receives the Holy Spirit, the Law has no rule over him again because the Law of the Spirit has set him free. He obeys the Voice of the Spirit. 
62.        2nd Corinthians 3:17-18, “Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.” KJV.
63.        1st John 4:13, “Hereby know we that we dwell in him and he in us because he hath given us of his Spirit.” KJV.
64.        Do you see the evidence that we dwell in Him and He in us? This is because He has given us the Token.
65.        Ephesians 1:13-14, “In whom ye also trusted after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation in whom also after that ye have believed, ye were sealed with that holy spirit of promise which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.” KJV.
66.        Ephesians 2:17-18, “And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh, for through him we both have access by one spirit unto the Father.” KJV.
67.        It is by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body and through that Spirit, we all have access unto the Father. Note and read Colossians 3:1-14. Amen.




DESIRE GOD

2
DESIRE GOD
Ephesians 3:3-6, “How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)
2.           Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; That the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel.” KJV.
3.           How can we be filled with the Holy Spirit of God? The answer is very clear: Our hearts must be perfect. We must desire it with all our hearts. Is that right? I will balance it in Psalms 42:1-2.
4.           Whatever is the desire of your heart, tell God about it. If you desire Holy Ghost baptism, if you know it is important to you as a believer, I do not need to tell you to desire it.
5.           Psalms 42:1-2, “As the hart panted after the water brooks so panted my soul after thee O God. My soul thirsted for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God?” KJV.
6.           You have to desire God. The hunger and craving for this Holy Ghost baptism must be there in you. The Lord will fulfill it by supplying the desire of your heart.
7.           John 7:37-39, “In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, ‘If any man thirst, let him come unto me and drink. He that believeth on me as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water”. KJV.
8.           If any man craves for the Holy Spirit, now is your time. If you wait for tomorrow, well, your problem is in your hand. I have opened the way. I know God is around us in this Church to confirm it because I must lay hand on some people, the Lord helping Me. To receive Holy Ghost baptism requires total surrender to God.
9.           Matthew 22:37, “Jesus said unto him, “Thou shall love the Lord thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul and with all thy mind”. KJV.
10.        Is it like that in your Bible? You want Holy Ghost baptism now? You must love the Lord thy God with all thy mind, with all that is in you, what it means is total surrender. You must crave God more than every other thing in this life. You must come to a point where you love God more than your wife, more than your husband, more than your children, more than what has been helping you, more than everything on Earth. All that is in you must love God and that is where the Spirit of God will come down from Heaven and dwell in you and then you will enjoy it. You will not perish.
11.        1st Corinthians 6:19-20, “What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you which ye have of God and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.” KJV.
12.        Therefore, glorify God in your body. You do not own yourself anymore; you do not live the way you want to live. You just live the way God wants you to live. You see the case of Holy Ghost baptism in a man! When you say that you have received the Holy Ghost baptism and you live anyhow, you received false Token. It is false baptism of the Holy Spirit. To be baptized with the Holy Spirit, it will take one to live like Christ for our Christ is holy; thus our own life must be holy.
HAVE YOU SURRENDERED YOURSELF TO GOD?
13.        Romans 12:1, “I beseech you therefore brethren by the mercies of God that ye present your bodies, a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God which is your reasonable service and be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.” KJV.
14.        I beseech you by the mercies of God to surrender your bodies unto Christ as the living sacrifice holy without blame, total surrender. THE EXTENT YOU SURRENDER TO GOD IS THE EXTENT HE WILL USE YOU.
15.        We have to ask God to fill us with the Holy Spirit because no man can fill us with the Holy Spiri, no man can change our heart, no man can give us that new heart that will make you have that new experience.
16.        St. Luke 11:9-19, “And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
17.        For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent?
18.        Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
19.        And he was casting out a devil, and it was dumb. And it came to pass, when the devil was gone out, the dumb spake; and the people wondered. But some of them said, He casteth out devils through Beelzebub the chief of the devils.
20.        And others, tempting him, sought of him a sign from heaven. But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth.
21.        If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub. And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons cast them out? therefore shall they be your judges.” KJV.
22.        Is it like that in your Bible? Your problem is in your hand. Is your heart right with God? Have you surrendered yourself to Him? Ask God, if He fails to do it, then He is a liar, but He is not a liar. My duty is to declare the whole counsel of God to you.
23.        John 15:1-16, “I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
24.        Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
25.        If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
26.        Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.
27.        These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
28.        Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
29.        Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.”. KJV.
30.        Whatsoever you ask my Father in My Name, He will give it to you. Don’t you know the Name of Christ? What will close your mouth this moment? If you have faith in God, your testimony must change. You can never be the same again.
31.        You see why I delayed this teaching till about this time so that everybody will relax. If you miss Him today, I wonder whether you can make it tomorrow. While there is light, walk with the light, for darkness is around the corner.
32.        Let us look at Holy Ghost in a Church, why it is necessary that the Holy Ghost must operate in a Church. Without the Holy Ghost in a Church there will be confusion. Thus, the Holy Ghost unites the brethren together, unites everybody to God. Without the Holy Ghost, we are all separated from God. Hence, the Holy Ghost binds us together with God.
33.        1st Corinthian 12:12-13, “For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.” KJV.
34.        You see what the Holy Ghost does in a Church! It does not matter where you came from provided you have the Spirit of God in you, I have the Spirit of God in me, it means we are one in Christ. However, where there is no Holy Ghost, people quarrel: “It is the Imo people in this Church; it is the Anambra people; it is the Abians; it is the Delta brethren; the Enugu brethren; the Benue people in the Church,” which is a sure sign that there is no Holy Ghost there. It is a carnal Church; a false Church.
35.        Ephesians 4:1-6, “I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,
36.        With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
37.        There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
38.        Have you seen what the Holy Ghost does in the Church? He endeavors earnestly to bind everybody with God so that nothing will separate us.  We will be worshipping one God, have one faith, one Spirit and one baptism. Holy Ghost helps us to worship God.
39.        1st Corinthians 12:2-3, “Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led. Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.” KJV.
40.         In other words, no man can attribute the things of God to the Devil if he has the Spirit of God in him. Thus, he that has the Holy Ghost in him can never commit sin. Sin against the Holy Ghost is attributing the things of God to the Devil.
41.        When you have the Spirit of God in you, you can never curse God. That somebody can open his mouth against the Holy Ghost is a sure sign that he had never tasted the truth from the very beginning. He has never tasted the Spirit of Life. He has never tasted the Spirit of God.
42.        Ephesians 5:15-20, “See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
43.        Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
44.        Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”  KJV.
45.        When one is filled with the Spirit of God, he can then worship God with praises, hymns and special numbers. If you are not filled with the Holy Ghost and you come into the Church to clap your hands, sing from now till eternity, you are only making a noise. You are an escort. You help people to worship their God. It is a dangerous situation. I am showing you the power of the Holy Ghost in the Church. Holy Ghost in the Church gives the Church the power to witness God’s Word.
46.        Acts 1:8, “But ye shall receive power after that the holy ghost is come upon you; and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the Earth.” KJV.
47.        In Acts 4:31-33, you will see when they received the Holy Spirit, instead of speaking in tongue or prophesying, they received the spirit that made them preach and witness the power of God.
48.        People are sleeping in the spirit. I will soon call it off. I will not continue to waste my time; maybe you want Me to go evangelical. Going evangelical will not help you in what God desires for you. No man has ever obtained the Token through evangelical messages. I am telling you the truth. That is why I warned the Evangelists in this Bride Ministry to be very careful. I do not believe that Evangelists have another spirit other than that of the Apostle. We are not writing another Bible.
49.        In the end-time message, they said that Evangelists scatter the Church. They are the fire brands of William Branham.  To that I say what the Bible said, “He that is not gathering is scattering. He that is not with me is against me.”By one spirit are we all baptized into one body. The Five-fold Ministry will stick together to perfect the Church.
50.        Imagine a situation where the Pastor will build, the Evangelist will pull down. The Apostle will plant, the Teacher will uproot. What type of house will they build? That is end-time spirit, yet they go about saying what the Prophet said. You want Me to tell you that Evangelists scatter the Church? It is only an Evangelist filled with the spirit of the Devil that does that. Every Holy Ghost filled Evangelist builds up the Church.


WHAT IS YOUR OWN HIDDEN AGENDA? 
51.        Christ showed Himself through honesty, meekness and sincerity. I think we should be sincere to ourselves until our lives become a mirror. One looking at Me will penetrate my heart, see how open I am and how pious I am. Not people calling themselves believers having a lot of hidden agendas.
52.        If you are in this Church and you are having your hidden agenda, there is no way you can be filled with the Holy Spirit. Hidden agenda will not allow the Holy Ghost to work in you.
53.        How do you know somebody that has a hidden agenda? When he comes into the Church, he will be absent-minded. When the Word is preached, he will be shaking his leg. When the Church says Amen, you will hear, “Any problem?” “Ha! No problem.”
54.        After planning everything, he sees the end of it all and hides it here; hidden agenda. Nothing kills more than hidden agenda. You only know when a man fails, he declares it open. Hidden agenda, it has killed many people and is still killing. What is your own hidden agenda? 
55.        Acts 4:31-33, “And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.
56.        And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that aught of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common. And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.” KJV.
57.        When the Holy Ghost came down, everywhere was shaking. Did anybody speak in tongue? He only evidenced Himself in the life that they started living immediately. Selfishness vanished. Every element of selfishness vanished. They did not want selfishness mentioned in their midst. They shared everything in common. Then they realized that they were one family.
58.        No matter how I preach it, there must be unbelievers in this Church. No matter how I bring it down, there are people that have already stumbled by this statement. You can believe every side of the Bible, but when it comes to sharing things in common, you say no. You see everybody dragging his feet and you say you are praying for the Holy Ghost? Na lie.
59.        What type of Holy Ghost are you then praying for? It is now narrowing down. Whether you say, “Amen” or not, as far as God is glorified, I do not intend to entertain anybody. I am not an entertainer. I am to tell you the naked truth. Note and read 1st Corinthian 2:1-5; 1st Thessalonians 1:4-5 and Ephesians 4:7-13.
60.        In the Church of God, the Holy Ghost bears fruit and the fruit shows itself in righteousness. It does not manifest any unrighteousness at all. We can see it in the Book of Corinthians 12:7-10, “But the manifestation of the spirit is given to every man to profit withal, for to one is given by the spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same spirit; to another faith by the same spirit; to another the gift of healing by the same spirit; to another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another, diverse kinds of tongues; to another, the interpretation of tongues.” KJV.
61.        Every man in the Church must have at least a gift. God is the One Who gives as He decides as can be seen in that place of 1st Corinthians 12:4-11.
62.        Every man has at least one gift. You can see it also in Romans 12:4-9, “For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
63.        Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching;
64.        Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that showeth mercy, with cheerfulness.
65.        Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.”
66.        I WANT TO BRING YOUR ATTENTION TO THE FACT THAT HOLY GHOST IS A REALITY. HOLY GHOST IS A PERSON; HOLY GHOST IS GOD. HE THAT HAS NOT THE SPIRIT OF GOD IN HIM IS NOT OF GOD.
He that has not the spirit of God in him is not of God. From what I have told you from the Bible, check what you have, in line with what you have heard. If your life is not in line, if your life is not bearing witness, brethren, what you have received is a false Token. What do you do? Surrender your life unto God now.
67.      Decide this moment to live for God all the rest of your life. God Himself who knows the heart of every man must seal your heart with the Holy Spirit. It is in your hand. If you ask for the Holy Spirit, He will give it to you for He promised it: “Whatever you ask in the Name of Christ, that you will get.”
68.      God’s True Token, the moment you get it you relax. Every other thing you commit does not touch your soul; this is eternal security. Tell yourself the truth. Check everything you have received, if it is not in line with what you have heard now, you have false Token. Make sure you have the true Token. God bless you. It is in your hands.
69.      A harlot received the Token. She made sure that nothing hindered her from taking it and it saved her life. Noah got the Token, Lot got the Token, all that must live godly in Christ must have the Token. All that must be raptured into glory must have the Token and the Token must be the true Token, not the false one, not impersonation.
70.      You may not speak in tongues, you may not prophesy, but your life must bear witness that you are a child of God. By this teaching, every doubt has been cleared. You do not need to ask Me whether you will go into rapture or not because everything is naked before you. You know yourself, you know what is hiding you. 
71.      Tell God the truth about your life. You do not need to live in fear again because when the Holy Ghost comes in, every fear vanishes, every doubt vanishes.
72.      Brethren, follow the spirit gradually, if you want to get the bedrock. When you plant your yam, many a time you divide it into two and plant it. During the time of harvest, when you harvest that yam, is it divided into three? What happens to it? Watch the flesh, it is a new one. It is better than the old one.
73.      I will keep on typing it until people will understand it. By the time I will tell you what it is, like I said before, somebody will say, “Oh! So, I have got it, yet I did not know? This is wonderful!”  Amen.

BE SURE YOU HAVE THE TRUE TOKEN
God bless you Church. Whatever you are receiving in this Message is what your faith is pulling out from Me. You stay awake in the spirit. A preacher stays awake in the spirit because he is your servant. However, the moment you sleep, you cause him to sleep also because he will not be preaching to the benches.
2.           I know many are still in expectation. I am also in a great expectation. When this life is over, you will know why we are passing all these sleepless nights.
3.           A man can never pass sleepless nights in vain unless that man is crazy. There is nothing beautiful here on this Earth. My joy is that William Branham saw it ahead of time and said it must be in the wilderness, away from human view.
4.           I told you in this Church that a woman is not a public figure. For when the woman is about to wed, she adorns herself inside. Only few people are permitted to see her there.  When she is fully adorned with her wedding dress, people will come and examine it; look round, ask her to stand up and  make some movements, then people will nod their heads.
5.           You have been fully adorned. Now, the world will take you just for a session. Then she will be presented to the world with the man standing right by her side for how many days? Less than 3 hours. Then, she recoils.  She cannot put on that dress again all the days of her life. Do not mind the Jezebels that are walking on the streets today, carrying megaphones; they are politicians.
6.           If God never raised a woman preacher in the Old Testament and He permitted them in the New Testament, He would not have been pointing them back to the Law. He said, “You should remain silent as unto the Law,” because He did not come to break the Law but to fulfill it.
7.           You see, we are in Jerusalem together going contrary to the Law of nature in this wilderness. We have spent 7 days yet it appears as if we are starting now. Think how eternity will look like? It appears as if we are starting now.
8.           You see, the more we progress, the sweeter it becomes. We are going to call it off at a time it is very sweet. I pray that God who knows everything should do something at that time it is very sweet. What is more, you know what my prayer is, that we will continue it here till eternity because the moment we go back to our families now, the cares of this life may not give us enough opportunity even to continue in this type of fellowship.
9.           I love God. Brother Ben Okezue, come to the pupit with your Bible. Flank Bon Diuka on the left side. There is no obstacle on the way. That was why I wept bitterly. I said, “Devil, you cannot see any good thing for snatching Bon Diuka away from Me.”
10.        However, when I remember the Voice that spoke to Me concerning him, I said, “Well, to God be the glory. Every man must fulfill the portion of the scripture God made for him. “When any man comes to the end of his own ministry, God knows how to stop it because God can never make a mistake. When He calls a man, He has a purpose for calling him. When that man achieves that purpose, it is all over, anything can happen to him.
11.        When John the Baptist achieved his purpose God was not mindful of him again. That was why when Herod arrested him, he heard that Jesus Christ was doing exploits, he sent people to go and tell Him. Jesus Christ heard it, He had authority over Herod for he could open that prison yard. Frankly speaking, that was what John the Baptist expected.
12.        Jesus Christ knowing fully well that John cannot be on the land while He, Himself will be on the land at the same time, ignored him. You know that is the truth. If He had caused John to escape, John’s converts would not have left John. Though he pointed them to Christ, some loved John so much and they continued running around him.
13.        What did Jesus do? He looked at His disciples and said, “Go and tell John what you have seen, what you have heard.” Then He left and went to Galilee. When He heard that John had been beheaded, what did He do? The Resurrection and the Life, He just went His away.
14.        Somebody might be asking, “Was He not the man that claimed He could cause someone to resurrect?”Was He claiming to do that? He did it. That was a good opportunity to save John the Baptist, but He did not do that. John finished his ministry.
15.        Not all that were sick in the days of Jesus were healed by Jesus Christ. Not all that died in the days of Jesus Christ He caused to resurrect. While He was on the land walking on two feet, people were marrying, they were dying also. There were hospitals here and there, but He healed few; caused few people to resurrect that they might believe that He was the Alpha and Omega. However, did they believe? Signs and wonders are for unbelievers.
16.        The Apostles, the same way. Besides, we are still in the days of the Apostle. We are in the days of the Church. Trust God even unto death.
17.        I heard a special number that touched Me this night. I just leaned on the wall and said, “What am I hearing? This voice is the sweetest I have ever heard in this camp”. I gave my ears to the wordings of that particular song. There is something in singing a song. When you are singing a song, you are conveying a message. Hence, I got the message and I shook my head.
18.        I said, “God, so you hid this type of gift here.” No wonder, the spirit told our Brother, “Forget about marriage. Forget about everything. Give your life fully to Christ. Whatsoever gift that is hidden in your life, will come out.” Satan can never fight you unless there is something in you.
19.        You see all these people that go to AMORC, Ogboni and all these occult groups, Satan got them because of what God planted in them. I am telling you the truth. Many are there regretting why they are there. When you see them, you think they are happy. They are not happy. They do not know how to come out of it. It requires the mighty hand of God to bring them out.
20.        That’s why when we are preaching this Gospel we are preaching, peradventure, some of such people will hear us and then jump out. Amen.
