The Family Altar
When it comes to the resurrection, he’ll be there, for God will raise him up at the last day. Jesus said so! “When I see the Blood, the Token, I’ll pass over you.” Oh!
125 Remember, if that token was not displayed, even the covenant was annulled. That’s right. The covenant was annulled. There was no—there was no covenant as long as that token wasn’t there. The token stood for the covenant. God made a covenant with them, yes, sir, but the token had to be. It wasn’t in effect, the covenant wasn’t, unless the token was there.
126 There might be many Jews could say, “Come here! I ain’t got no blood on my door, but I want to show you something, I’m a circumcised Jew. I am circumcised.” That didn’t mean that. [Brother Branham snaps his finger—Ed.] “When I see the blood! When I see the token!”
127 You might say, “I am Baptist, Presbyterian, Methodist,” or whatever you want to be.
But, “When I see the Token!”
128 You say, “I’m a believer. My mother was a member of this church. My daddy was a member of this church. I’ve been a member there since a child.” That don’t mean that. [Brother Branham snaps his finger—Ed.] “I don’t lie, steal. I don’t do this. I…” That don’t mean that. [Brother Branham snaps his finger.] “I belong to Branham Tabernacle. I do this, that, or the other. I believe all the Word.”
129 Them Jews could say, “I believe Jehovah!” He’d a listened to the Message of the hour, if he did. Certainly.
They’d had a lot of messages, but This was the Message of the hour. See? I believe the Message of the hour. Yeah. The blood was applied in the evening time.
They might have said, “I, I’m a Jew.”
130 People say today, “I’m a Christian. I can show you my long membership. I want you to tell me where I ever stole anything, was ever in law courts. Show me where I ever committed adultery, I ever done all these things, or something like that. Show me one place.” That don’t mean a thing now. Oh, no. See, no matter how much covenant he was, the covenant is without effect. It’s non-effective.
You say, “Well, I’m a Bible student.”
131 I don’t care what you are. Without that covenant, the wrath of God is upon you. That’s right. It’s caught up with you. Yeah. “Your sins will find you out.” What is sin? Unbelief. You’ve disbelieved the Message. You’ve disbelieved the Word. You’ve disbelieved the witness of the Token, Itself, when It’s identified Itself in the midst of us. And have you disbelieved That? No matter how much you disbelieve It, It’s got to be applied.
