The Family Altar
228 Minister, member, good man, moral man, whatever you are, and you know that God taken cigarettes from you. Women, you know He has taken shorts, and—and short hair, and everything, from…You know He did that. But then if you turn around and do despite, and count that Blood of the covenant, as It was, “an unholy thing,” Who has sanctified you and brought you this far!
229 Like the spies, if they come right up here to the borderland, and looked over, and said, “Well, I know it’s there, but the obstacle is too great. We look like grasshoppers,” they perished in the wilderness. Borderline believers!
230 Don’t just come this far, say, “I believe the Message.” You obey the messenger. Come into Christ! You say, “Well, I believe every Word said, Brother Branham.” That’s good, but that’s just—that’s just being able to read.
231 Take the Message, take It into your heart, that you must have the Token, the very Life that was in Christ be in you. “When I see That, I will pass over you.”
232 As we see the great end-time signs on earth today, we know that that’s right. Now look, I’ve waited for this, for a long, long time, for this Message to you. See? And you’ve seen the end-time signs. And I’ve preached It to you, and showed It to you, by everything that Christ said. Is that right? [Congregation says, “Amen.”—Ed.] You’ll admit that? [“Amen.”] We’re at the end time. I don’t see nothing left.
233 You say, “What about the mark of the beast?” Those who reject the Holy Spirit is already marked by the beast. The punishment will come later. See?
234 In Israel, when the trumpet sounded in the Jubilee year, every man…You notice Christ, in reading that? He just read half of it, ’cause just half of it was applied to that time. See? “He sent Me to bind up the brokenhearted, preach deliverance,” and so forth, see, but, He, “and the acceptable year of the Lord.” The rest of it, He never—He never read that; He laid the Scroll down, for that’s for this day. See? He just read part of it, part was His day.
235 Now this is what He is going to do today. This is what He is speaking, through His anointed Spirit, to the church today: Now is the hour. Now is the time. Receive It, people. Receive It!
