34Now, the Book of Ephesians, as I was just saying, I… to my opinion, is one of the greatest Books of the New Testament. It leaves us, on where Calvinism runs out on one limb, and Arminianism runs out on the other limb, but the Book of Ephesian draws it together and positionally places the Church.
35Now, I’ve typed it with Joshua. If you noticed, Israel was brought up out of Egypt, and there’s three stages of their journey. One stage, was leaving Egypt. The next stage, was the wilderness. And the next stage, was Canaan.
36Now, Canaan does not represent the age of the Millennium. It only represents the age of the overcomer, the dispensation of overcoming, because in Canaan they killed and burned and took cities. And there’ll be no death in the Millennium.
37But another thing that it does, it brings up justification by faith, after they believed in Moses and left Egypt. Sanctification, to following under the Pillar of Fire and the atonement of the sacrificial lamb in the wilderness. And then entering into a land that had been promised.
38Now, what is the land promised to the New Testament believer? The promise is the Holy Spirit. “For it shall come to pass in the last days,” Joel 2:28, “that I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh. Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy. And upon My handmaids and My maidservants will I pour out of My Spirit, and they shall prophesy. I’ll show wonders in the heavens above. And in the earth, pillars of fire, and smoke, and vapour.” And Peter said, on the Day of Pentecost, after taking his text and preaching, “Repent, every one of you, and be baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission,” to remit, to forgive, to take away all back trespasses.
39Did you notice, Joshua, before they crossed Jordan, Joshua said, “Go through the midst of the camp and clean your clothes and sanctify every one of you, and let no man come at his wife, for within three days you’ll see the Glory of God.” See? It is a—it is a process of getting ready to inherit the promise. Now, the promise to Israel, was, God gave Abraham the promise of the land, of Palestine, and it was to be their possession forever. And they was to always remain in this land.
The Third Exodus

299The first exodus, what did He do? He brought them out of a natural land, to a natural land.
300The second exodus, He brought them out from a spiritual condition, into a spiritual baptism of the Holy Ghost.
301Now He is bringing them from the spiritual baptism of the Holy Ghost, right back into the Eternal Land of the Millennium and the great Hereafter. Same Pillar of Fire, by the same anointed system, the same God doing the same things! And the same Word, declared the first one, declared the second one. The same Word, declared the second one, has declared the third one, and here we see It among us.
302Come out. Oh! Come out of this chaos. Come to the living God. Come to the Word. “And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us.” And now He’s in our flesh, dwelling among us. Come out and serve the living God.

222Let me tell you today, as His servant, unless the Token is on the door, there is a spiritual death going to strike. And all churches are headed back for the—for the council, of World Council of Churches. They’re all going back to Catholicism. And only those who are genuine, born again, is going to stay out!
223Remember, not your Pentecostal denominations, ’cause they’re already in it. Shows they are dead! They are perished. They sacrificed. They’ve went back. They put Him outside the door, but He is looking for the Token. Because, the only thing they relied upon was speaking in tongues.
224Don’t you rely upon no speaking in tongues, no nothing else. But let the Token Itself be there, the Person of Jesus Christ, His Own Life in you. Circumcise not just this, that; but circumcise your whole being, till you and Christ are One. Christ is in you, and His Life lives out through you.
