1John 10:27 My sheep hear (recognize) my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

2God Seed will only recognize God's Word.

3Jehovah Jireh part 1 62-0705 P:27 Now, this unconditional covenant. Not "if you will, I will, but I will later on," or something like that; "I have already give the land to you, and your seed after you!" Amen. See, already done it; It's a finished work. You said, "To Abraham He did that." Yes, not only Abraham, but his seed after him. And if we're Abraham's seed, it's a finished product. "Those who He foreknew, He called; those who He called, He's justified; those who He has justified, He has already glorified." What you scared about? That's right. "And the antichrist in the last days," according to Revelations, "deceived all that dwelt upon the face of the earth, whose names were not written in the Lamb's Book of Life," since the last revival? No, "before the foundation of the world." That's when your name was put in the Lamb's Book of Life, when the Lamb was slain. God spoke the Word; It was in His thinking, in His thought, He spoke the Word and everything happened just at that time. This is just God's seed materializing; that's all. His Word's coming down. Now, when the Light of God flashes across that, quickly that Seed recognizes It, because It's born of God. It's Abraham's Seed foreknow by God. That's why the Light flashes is to catch that Seed.

4Queen of Sheba 61-0219 P:18 Now, He said, "I come." And when He did come, the people did not recognize Him. He came just exactly the way the Scripture said that He would come. He came and He was the Jewish Messiah. And not only Jewish Messiah, He was the promised seed of Abraham, that we have so taken through the week of study, and, over at the church. And He came to His own and His own received Him not. And He had presented Himself to His own. And He came to Israel, which was the church of God, and the people of God, and the nation of God. And He came to His own and His own received Him not, but as many as did receive Him, to them gave He the power to become sons of God to them that believed on His Name."

5John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

6The word "received" was translated from the Greek word Lambano, which means: to lay hold of, to appropriate to oneself, to give one access to oneself, to experience.

7The Apostle John is talking of him, to them He gave power (Notice, He gave exousia = He gave authority, He gave the right, He gave the judicial decision, He gave the judgment, in other words, He gave the ability to make a right decision, He gave the ability to make a right choice. And what is that right choice?) to become (to ginomai, to come to fulfillment as) the sons of God,)

8Brother Branham goes on to say, The very revelation itself is sovereign in God. That's how people pound at things, and jump at things, and hit at things, and not knowing what they're doing. God is sovereign in His works.

9From his sermon, Who is this Melchisedec 65-0221E P:27 brother Branham said, "Now, we find Him at the beginning, His attributes. And now, you were with Him then. Then is when the Book of Life comes into view. Now, we read over here in Revelations the 13th chapter, the 8th verse, that the beast that comes upon the earth in these last days will deceive all those people on the earth whose names were not written in the Lamb's Book of Life before the foundation of the world. Think of it. Before Jesus was ever born, four thousand years before He came on earth, and several thousand years before you come on earth, Jesus in God's mind died for the sins of the world, and the Book of Life was made; and your name was put on that Book of Life before the foundation of the world. That's the Bible truth. See? Your name was ordained of God and placed on the Book of Life before the foundation of the world. You were there in His attributes. You don't remember it, no, because you're just a part of His life. You are a part of God when you become a son or a daughter of God, just as you are a part of your earthly father. That's right. You are... The male carries the hemoglobin, the blood. And when that has gone in the egg, then you become a part of your father, and your mother is a part of your father also. So you're all a part of your father. Glory. That lets the denomination out altogether. Certainly does. God in all, the only place...

10Now, notice he said, Your name was ordained of God and placed on the Book of Life before the foundation of the world. You were there in His attributes. You don't remember it, now, because you're just a part of His life. You are a part of God when you become a son or a daughter of God, just as you are a part of your earthly father.

11Now, brother Branham is telling us that who we began as a thought in God, just as when our earthly father had a desire to have a child, he consummates his thought with an act in his flesh with his wife (the bedding ground) and out from him comes forth life in a expression of Love, which results in an offspring).

12He said, Jesus in God's mind died for the sins of the world, and the Book of Life was made; and your name was put on that Book of Life before the foundation of the world.

13Then if our name was in that Book of Life before the World was even framed, then we had to be a part of God. An "expression Word" as brother Branham put it, and as Webster says, The word EXPRESSION in speaking of genetics, means: the manifestation of a trait, caused by a particular gene.

14And in the Book of Revelations, when it speaks of the Lamb of God being slain from before the foundations of the world, it speaks also of those whose names were written in the Lambs Book of Life. Then we ought to know that when God, the great architect and designer planned out His family, He planned out for our Older brother Jesus to go to the Cross on our behalf to redeem back all of God's other Seed that had been taken captive by Satan. The Word Redeem means to buy back, and only those who belonged to God in the first place can be bought back. None others have that privilege.

15Galatians 4:6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father

16Look, it is all in the Divine plan and foreknowledge of God. Romans 8:29-30 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

17And the Apostle John tells us "now we are sons" not in the future we will be, but we now, are already sons of God. It's already done, and only sons of God can acknowledge what God has already done.

181John 3:1-2 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. 2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

19Only true sons of God can truly see Him a he truly is.

20Workings of the Holy Spirit 56-0816 P:46 Nearly every one that really truly serves God meets them kind of times. Sure we do. And when... Sometimes you wonder how you're going to get the kiddies some shoes for school, how you're going to make this bill and that bill. Don't worry. There's only one thing to do, is rest on His promise. I've never seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread; so it doesn't matter. Oh, how we could stop here and sow testimonies of the great power of God. One day, while, Abraham, sitting in that condition... He raised up his eyes and looked one hot day, and he seen three Men coming, walking, had dust all over their clothes. And Abraham was spiritual. He recognized immediately Who that was. And he run out and fell down by the side of the Man's feet and said, "My Lord, stop by a little while and set under the tree. And let me bring a morsel of meal. And refresh Yourself, and then you may go on. For this purpose have You come to Your servant."What? They looked like Men. But you know Who it was? It was two Angels and Almighty God. That's what the Bible says.

21Jesus said in John 14:7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

22Thirst 65-0919 P:78 Just remember, when you were in your father's loins, you were with him then. But your father didn't know you then, and you didn't know your father. And you had to come and be born. God made a way through your mother, for the seed bed, and then it come. And then you become a man or a woman, whatever it was, then you recognized your father, and your father could have fellowship with you. Now, remember, if you've got Eternal Life, your Life was in God at the beginning. And the Life... God is the Word. And then when the Word was made flesh in Jesus Christ, God coming down to dwell in His Own body, made Himself the Son of God, when God came down to dwell in that, you were in Him when He was crucified. And you were crucified with Him, and you died with Him on Calvary. You was buried with Him on the mountain. And you rose with Him, on Easter morning. And now you're setting together in heavenly places in Him, and now you've got fellowship with Him. See? God Himself become one of us. "No man has seen the Father at any time, the only Begotten of the Son--Father has declared Him." That's God became a man, so He could fellowship with you as a man. See? And now you are flesh, and He's flesh. God is made flesh among us in the Person of His Son Jesus Christ. And in Him was God. He was God, nothing short of God. He was God, God manifested in the Son Jesus Christ, which made Him Emmanuel, as the prophet said He would be.

23Jesus Christ the same 63-0627 P:45 And here comes Simon, with such teaching as that, into the presence of a Man that his brother firmly believed that He was the Messiah. And as soon as he walks into His Presence, not only did He know who he was, He knowed that godly old father, Jonas. No wonder it took the starch out of him. He knowed that was the true identification of the Messiah, "your name is Simon; you are the son of Jonas."And a man that was so illiterate that he could not even sign his own name, we're told; the Bible said, in the Book of the Acts of the Apostles the 3rd chapter, that he was both ignorant and unlearned. But it pleased God to make him the head of the church at Jerusalem and give him the keys to the Kingdom. 'Cause when that predestinated seed laying there in that old fisherman, and when the Light struck it, quickly it recognized that that was the Messiah.

24John 20:17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, "I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God."

25Acts 17:28-29 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

26And if His offspring, then our living, our moving, and our complete being are obedient to Him and are led by him. And we must recognize Him in order to be led by Him.

27Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

28Faith 56-0815 P:29 A man said to me the other day; he said, "Now, wait a minute, Brother Branham, you're getting away from your Baptist doctrine when you go to say, receiving the Holy Ghost." Said, "We received It when we believed."I said, then, "Why did Paul say, 'Have you received It since you believed, Acts 19?"Oh, he said, "I want to ask you something." Said, "You were preaching on Abraham, and Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness." Said, "The only thing he can do is believe. What else can a person do but believe? And God imputed unto him the righteousness because he believed."I said, "That's true, but He give him the seal of circumcision as a confirmation of his belief." And I said, "If you haven't received the Holy Ghost yet, God's never recognized your faith. And the Holy Ghost is the seal of God."Ephesians 4:30, "Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby you're sealed until the next revival?" Oh, no! "Until your eternal destination." How long? Forever. God settled it once for all.

29Hebrews 12:7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?

301Corinthians 8:3 But if any man love God, the same is known of him.

31And if we live by Him, and move by Him, and are led by Him, then we will be gathered as His Sons by Him and He is the Word, the revealed Word of God

322Thessalonians 2:1Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

33Hebrews 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

34Sirs we would see Jesus 57-1211 P:43 Jesus said, "Wherever the carcass is, the eagles will be gathered." That's right. They gather to Him.

35Satan's Eden 65-0829 P:18 People, ignorantly worshipping Satan, thinking they are worshipping God. As we're warned by prophecy in II Thessalonians that... Let's just read that: II Thessalonians, the 2nd chapter. Let's just get it a moment, if I can right away. I'd like to read that just a... I believe II Thessalonians. I got the Scripture here and say... Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of the Lord Jesus, and by our gathering together unto him, And see the coming of the Lord and the gathering to Him, as God will gather His people to Him in the last days: the gathering of the people to the Lord, not to the church, to the Lord.... gathering together unto Him. That ye be not soon shaken in your mind, or troubled--troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as... the day of the Lord is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin... (man of sin, watch what he is now) ... man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition, (That was Judas. See?)Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God setteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

36And when is this gathering to take place? he said in 2 Thessalonians 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming (Parousia) of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

37Hear ye Him 57-0322 P:1 And we pray that You will altogether gather us tonight under the wings of His abiding Presence. As a hen gathers her chicks, may we be gathered this night. And may the Holy Spirit visit us with great power. For we ask it in Christ's Name. Amen. May be seated.

38Jesus said in Matthew 3:11-12 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire: 12 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.

39And again in Matthew 13:28-30 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? 29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

40Ephesians 1:10 That in the dispensation of the fullness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him: In One what? In one body. The Body of Christ.

41John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

42Mark 13:27 And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.

43Luke 3:17 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and will gather the wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.

44Now, this gathering unto Him is due to our Love for Him and His Word for He is the Word.
2 Corinthians 2:8 Wherefore I beseech you that ye would confirm your love toward him.

45And Jesus said in John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

46Again he said in verse 23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

47Leading of the Spirit 55-0807E P:16 ... led by the Spirit of God. Be expecting it. Simeon was expecting God to keep His Word. Abraham was expecting God to keep His Word. David was expecting God to keep His Word when he met the giant. Samson was expecting God to keep His Word when he laid his arms around the pole. Samson was expecting God to keep His Word when he picked up a jaw bone of a mule and beat down a thousand Philistines. The Hebrew children was expecting God to keep His Word when they walked into the fiery furnace. Daniel was expecting God to keep His Word when he went in among the lions. The woman that touched the hem of His garment was expecting God to keep His Word. Martha was expecting God to keep His Word when He said, "I am the Resurrection and Life."

48And what about us today? We have promises from God that before one bomb stikes the USA we will be in the arms of Christ.

49God's provided way 59-0415A P:48 Even now, till the science is claiming that the--the earth is bulging out in the middle. You seen that here the other day, and heard them talking of it, that their... The waters in the North has went down so many feet, in the middle of the earth, rather, and getting deeper in the north and in the south, because the earth is a bulging out. The sun doesn't go around its orbit like it used to. Everything is indicating that coming of the Lord. We're right at the door. And remember. Before one of those bombs can drop... Don't forget this. Jesus said, "As it was in the days of Noah and in the days of Lot, so shall it be in the coming of the Son of man." And before Noah, 'fore any rain fell down, Noah was in the ark, safely. Before any fire fell on Sodom, Lot was outside. And before one bomb can strike at, the Church will be home in glory, gone in. Be sure. Then if this... Just to think, friends, if it's that close, how much closer is the coming of the Lord? 'Cause the Lord comes before that happens.

50World War 3: Vladimir Putin Declares War If Hillary Clinton Wins
By Irene Cabrera on June 27, 2016

Vladimir Putin has declared that he might make World War 3 happen if Hillary Clinton wins as president in the U.S. Elections. The Russian president says that it’s Clinton who brings the real threat of war, not Donald Trump. His declaration has stressed out a lot of Russians and Romanians. “If it’s Hillary Clinton, its war,” the Russian president declared.

51Russia Preparing For War: Putin Moves Nukes To US Border & Mediterranean Sea By Necta Casiple on October 7, 2016

Is Russia preparing for war? The powerhouse has deployed its biggest and most powerful nuclear bombers on Cold War-esque patrols on the border of the United States airspace. The Kremlin has also sent a warship to the Mediterranean sea amid growing fears in the West of a possible World War 3.

Russian president Vladimir Putin has recently signed off a new division of massive nuclear capable bombers to patrol around the region. Long-range strategic bombers TU-95Ms and TU-22M3s, dubbed as the “Blackjacks” and “Bears”, are set to make regular patrols which were common during the Cold War. The said bombers will undertake flights over the Pacific Ocean extending as far as Hawaii and US military bases in Guam.

The superpower has also dispatched another warship off to Mediterranean. Express reports that Russia’s missile corvette has left its Black Sea Fleet base of Sevastopol to join a group of warships in the area. The Malakhit cruise missile-armed “Mirazh” follows two more Kalibr-armed Black Sea Fleet missile corvettes— the “Serpukhov” and the “Zelyony Dol” that are sailing to the same location as well.

52Is Russia preparing for war? Vladimir Putin sends a warship to Mediterranean.

Captain 2nd Rank Nikolai Voskresensky, a spokesman for Russia’s Black Sea Fleet, confirmed this to Russian news agencies on Wednesday, saying the two warships have already left their home port in Crimea on Tuesday as part of the country’s planned offshore maritime zone rotation. According to Voskresensky, the two missile ships “have passed the Black Sea straits and will enter the Mediterranean waters in evening.”

The two latter vessels are returning to join its naval forces in the Mediterranean after carrying out missile strikes against militants’ positions in Syria on August 19. The redeployment comes a day after Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov’s announcement that the country has sent the S-300 surface-to-air missile defense system to Syria to protect the Russian naval base in Tartus.
Brewing tensions between Russia and US

The Kremlin claims the new assignment of the ships is still in assistance to the fight against the “barbaric” Islamic State (ISIS). However, its recent nuclear activities are ringing alarm bells to the West whose tensions with Russia are already high over disagreements in Syria.

As previously noted, the United States has repeatedly condemned Russia’s actions surrounding the ongoing Syrian war which the former claims were leading to death and destruction. The West thinks extremist groups will continue exploiting vacuums to expand their operations. This could reportedly include strikes against Russian interests or even Russian cities.

53Russia Preparing for War — The clash between the US and Russia could be coming as relations seem to worsen.

“Russia will continue to send troops home in body bags, and will continue to lose resources, perhaps even aircraft,” a US State Department spokesperson said.

Prior to the redeployment of its warships, the Putin-led country has already implemented a four-day “civil defense” drill in preparation for an imminent nuclear war. The massive evacuation of 40 million citizens follows the Ministry of Defense’s warning of “schizophrenics from America sharpening atomic weapons for Moscow.”

People were told that a war with the West may happen anytime and that Kremlin officials have already prepared underground shelters to house an estimate of 12 million evacuees.

40 Million Russians Take Part In 3-Day Emergency Drill: Preparing for World War 3?

Putin and Obama are experiencing an all-time low in displomatic relations since the Cold War.

In these trying times, World War 3 seems closer to reality than ever before. The US and Russia are experiencing the worst tensions since the start of the Cold War in the 70s, and reconciliation between the two superpowers grows more and more impossible each day.

The most recent episode that sparked international concern was when Russian president Vladimir Putin oversaw a nationwide 3-day emergency drill, led by the Ministry of Civil Defence, Emergencies, and Elimination of Consequences of Natural Disasters a.k.a., the EMERCOM. This exercise in soft power will involve 200,000 emergency personnel, alongside the cooperation of around 40-million Russian civilians.

54World War 3 imminent? 3-Day Drill is to make a statement against the US?
The reason for the 3-day drill is straight to the point – the nation is preparing itself for an inevitable backlash from the West. As per the announcement of the Defence Ministry-run Zvezda TV network, they are broadcasting against “schizophrenic Americans” who are preparing nuclear weapons for Moscow. The EMERCOM website also added that the drills would properly rehearse Russia’s citizens in the government’s protocol to recover from any radiation, chemical, and biologically-induced events.

Emergency minister Vladimir Puchkov made sure to vocalize the hidden intentions of the drill, which is to show the powers of the West that they are capable of surviving and retaliating should they think of launching an attack. Prior to this, President Putin suddenly dropped a 16-year-old existing treaty between the US and Russia last Monday. This pact was signed during the time of former US President Bill Clinton and ensured a key agreement that both countries would dispose of weapons-grade plutonium in an effort to rid themselves of nuclear weaponry.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was aware of the implications of their falling out but asserted that it was a necessary step in order to show Russia’s domination over the region following the backlash against US interference in Crimea. Russia also did not take kindly to the US bolstering the NATO forces along the Russian border, as well as their public declaration against Russian forces bombing parts of Syria in order to support some of their allies.

55What it takes to overcome all unbelief 60-0729 P:11 Now, during these ten days, if God permits us to go on, you may see some things that'll seem unreasonable to you. But if it seems a little question, in my speaking I'll always stay right in the Words on God's promises. That's enough for us. If we stay right with His promises, if God will confirm all of His promises, that's as good as we need. Don't you think so? That's as good as we need, if God will stay with His promise. Because I believe that we're living in a day that when there's mysterious things going on, and will continue to go on, and get complicated, because we know that there's to be a Jannes and Jambres rise up in the last days to withstand Moses and Aaron, as the Bible said, and some impersonations to act like it's something that it is isn't. But God's Word is ever the truth. I always hold onto that, and that God's Word is always eternally true. And no man is any better than his word. If I don't keep my word, then I'm not much. And if God doesn't keep His Word, He isn't God. But if God does keep His Word, then He ever remains God. In order to be God, He's got to keep His Word. You, see, He's got to keep His Word.

56And evidence that we are seed of God is that we will keep God's Word as well.

57John 15:10 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

58John 7:17-18 If any man will do his will, (God's will) he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. 18 He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.

59Let us pray...
