1Genesis 1:11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
3Tonight I want to go further into our study from last Sundays sermon where we read from paragraph 29 and 30 of The Rising of the Son. My reason for this is because people just do not think enough about what Genesis 1:11 is all about and that it is a law that regulates the nature of every life.
4Now, think about what we just read in Genesis 1:11 because first of all we read, "and God said," Now, if God said something, then it is final. There is no arguing about it, he said what he meant and he meant what he said.
5The Bible says Malachi 3:6 that "He is God and He changes not", and it also tells us in Hebrews 13:18, "he is the same yesterday, today and forever."
So the first thing we must do when we read where the Bible tells us, "and God said," we should immediately open our awareness to what it is that God is saying...
6So let's look at what God said here in Genesis1:11. God said, "Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
7Now, what is it God just told us here? He said every seed will bring forth after its kind, which means "after its nature". Now, this is the law of Life, and basically any child can understand this law.
8If you want watermelon, you plant watermelon seed, and if you want cucumber, you plant cucumber seed. Because the law tells us that the nature of the life is in the seed, and whatever that seed Life is, the life in that seed will bring forth the nature of the life.
11Now, these words demand an understanding, because brother Branham is not just talking to talk here. To say what he said, but placing them in other words to help you understand it better, he said, "we who are the beneficiaries of His Life, are to prove that it is His Life that is in us."
12In other words, the beneficiaries of His Life are those who are born again of the same Spirit. For we are told by the Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 12:13 For by one Spirit we are all baptized into one Body."And the same Apostle Paul who told us this told us also in Roman 8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. 12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to self, to live after self, 13 For if ye live after self, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of self, ye shall live. 14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
This tells us that if we indeed have the same Spirit, the same Life that lived in Christ now living in us, then it will by necessity do the same things that it did when it was in Christ.
14God in His people 50-0227 P:22 Now, if I told you I was John Dillinger, or the spirit of John Dillinger was on me, you'd look for me to have guns, act like John Dillinger. If I told you I was an artist, the spirit of a great artist was on me, you'd expect me to paint the pictures of an artist. Is that right? If I told you I was an expert mechanic, and the mechanic's spirit was on me, you'd expect me to know what was wrong with your car. If I said to you that I was born of the Spirit of God and the Spirit of Jesus Christ was on me, you'd expect me to do what He did, act like He did. That's His Spirit working through a human being. Do you believe that? His Spirit worked on a brass serpent one time. Do you believe that? And on the pool of Bethesda, a water chopped up, troubled water, ever who stepped in there believing, they received their healing. Is that right? Could the water say, "Look what a great water I am?" No, it was the Angel on the water that done the healing, not the water, the Angel. When the Angel went away, it was just water. Men are just men, but it's God's agency.
Now, this is the very nature that was in Jesus he is talking about. The very Life has a nature, and every seed will bring forth according to its own nature that i within itself. So he is talking about the very nature that was in Jesus Christ being in the Church in the last days.
15Adoption or placing 60-0522E P:15 Tell me, my brother, tell me, my sister, when was the time that the sons of God was ever to be manifested outside of this time now? When were there ever a time in the history, this that manifest the time to deliver all nature? Nature, the nature itself is groaning, waiting for the time of the manifestation. Why, before the atonement was made, before the Holy Ghost was ever poured out, before all the Old Testament, on down there, there couldn't have been manifestation. It had to wait till this time. Now, all things has been brought, coming, shaping up to a headstone, to the manifestation of sons of God coming back, and the Spirit of God coming into these men, so perfectly, until their ministry will be so close like Christ's, till it'll join Him and His church together.
16Now, you might say, "well that was in one man William Branham". And you could be right, it was in that man, but he didn't say man, he said men. he's speaking in the plural here. he is speaking of Romans 8:19 the sons (plural) of God. to the manifestation of sons of God coming back, and the Spirit of God coming into these men, so perfectly, until their ministry will be so close like Christ's, till it'll join Him and His church together.
17Notice, sons, plural, These men plural, their ministry plural his church plural. brother Branham is not speaking of just one man doing this, but a whole group of people reflecting his very life and ministry until the entire church is manifesting Christ.
18Again from his sermon, We would see Jesus 59-0422 P:16 Therefore, we are cleansed by His Blood, so that His Spirit lives in the Church manifesting Itself, moving among the members. "The works that I do shall ye also." I know the translation there is "greater" than this in the King James, but I believe the right translation would be "more" than this shall you do, for there could hardly be greater. He raised the dead, and stopped nature, and He did everything. "More" it'd be a universal, all around the world in the Church at the same time; where God was manifested in one Person, Jesus, now, It's manifested in the Church universal, around. Now, then that great Spirit... If I said the Spirit of God was in me, I would be doing the works of God. Jesus said, "If I do not the works of My Father, then believe Me not."
19So we see there was a deep desire to see the manifestation of the Holy Spirit living itself out n the hearts of al believers universally. And where there is a deep to call, there has to be a deep to respond.
20Again in his sermon, What it takes to overcome all unbelief 60-0729 P:20 Now, the Scripture says... Jesus said Himself in Saint John 14:7, "He that heareth My Word..." No, "The works that I do, that... He that believeth on Me, the works that I do, shall he do also." And the English translation there says, "Greater than this shall he do, for I go to My Father." But if you'll take the original translation on that said, "More shall he do." Now, no one could do greater than He did, because He raised the dead, stopped nature, and just done everything. But what He was, that He said, "A little while and the world will see Me no more (Now, that word is 'Kosmos,' which means 'the world order.'). It shall see Me no more, yet ye (the church) shall see Me, for I (And "I" is a personal pronoun, we know that), I will be with you (He's even said), in you unto the end of the world."Now, what was it then? God could manifest Hisself through one Man, a Man, His Son called Jesus. Now, God takes the Spirit of that Jesus and puts back into His children, that's been adopted by Jesus Christ, and manifest the same Spirit and same power, the world around. That's God in us, Emmanuel in us.
22Again we read in Let us see God 59-1129 P:76 Now, this Angel of the Lord, if It doesn't perform and do the same works that Jesus did, then it's not the Spirit was on Jesus. But if It does the same works that Jesus does; because He said, "He that believeth on Me, the works that I do, shall he also."You know the Bible says, same chapter, John 14, "The works that I do, shall he do also; even more than this shall he do, for I go to My Father." I know the King James puts it "greater." It couldn't be no greater; the original says "more." 'Cause He stopped nature; He raised the dead; well, it's just everything. You could do no greater than He did. But the church would do more of it, because while we're having a meeting here, they're having a meeting in Africa; they're having them in Brazil; they're all around the world (See?); 'cause it could be more. God was manifested in one Person then, His Son Jesus; now He's manifested in His church universal, but the same Spirit doing the same works. One day...
24That is why when God stopped the storm for me in Uganda, it was so important the s3econd time that the brothers prayed, and not just me. And when the brothers prayed, God did for them what he did for me and William Branham and the eldest son Jesus. Showing it is His Spirit in His church universally, throughout the entire world. And what he did for us here when we were in Kentucky, he did for the brethren in Argentina. I was just down in Bolivia and many of the people who were there in Argentina were in the meetings in Bolivia, and they still recall what God did for us in 2014.
25Again from Abraham and his seed 61-0416 P:75 I want you to notice. That was just before the destruction now and before the promise was fulfilled. Watch just a moment now. After He'd him that, placed his name now, positionally placed him, called him through justification (You believe that?), his seed through justification, sanctification through the Blood, to the seed, filling with Hisself, pouring Hisself into him as El-Shaddai, the Holy Spirit, Holy Spirit... Now, placing him and giving him a part of His Name, Elohim, a small Elohim, and man was born to be a god. Now, say that's wrong. Jesus said, "Don't it say in your own laws, 'Ye are gods'? And why do you condemn Me then, if Your own law says you're gods." He was given a domain; the domain was the earth. The whole earth is groaning, waiting now for the manifestations of the sons of God. If I'm a Branham, I'm a Branham; I'm part of a Branham. And if a man is a son of God, He's made in the image of God and given the domain here on earth to rule this earth like God ruled it. And the second Adam proved it. Amen. He stopped nature: "Peace be still." Amen. Cursed the fig tree... Certainly, He was a Man yet He was God; He was a manifested Son of God. That's what we're to be one of these days. We're just coming to it through justification, the seeds of Abraham coming up.
26Sardisean church age 60-1209 P:54 And as we overcome by the Holy Spirit like He had, we will set with Him as He takes the earthly throne of David, to set and rule with Him just like He did up there (Amen.) with power and authority over all the earth. "And the earth is groaning, waiting for the manifestations of the sons of God to be manifested, God's sons."Because after all, this world was not given for God to control. Let's notice. That's right. Who is the god of the earth? Man. That's his domain. All, everything in the earth is subject to the man. Through sin he fell; through Christ's redeeming power he comes back again (That's right.), because the earth belongs to man, it was given to him, and he was ruler over everything. And all nature's groaning, waiting for that time that when the sons of God will be manifested again. Oh, my. Manifestations of the sons of God... Now, we'd better leave that right now.
27That is why the temperature can be so unbearable people are getting sick, and we can speak to the atmosphere and command the temperature to cool down by 30 degrees and it does so at our command. And that is why we can say to the storm that is so violent we cannot even hear our self preach and command the storm to stop and it does so, or command the tornado to go north and it follows our command. We were meant to be little god's over the earth. And all we have to do is "hear it, recognize it, and then act upon it," In other words we need to step into who we are, because when the bride recognizes who she is she will be raptured.
28Now, pay close attention to this next quote from brother Branham at the beginning of the Church Ages. From his sermon, Patmos vision 60-1204E P:36 brother Branham said, "Watch His nature, His Life, His works. It should be manifested right here in this tabernacle, just like it was in His day (not saying this prejudice, God knows that), not only here, but across the world. I'm glad that it is. Then we know where we are standing, because we have that same Spirit in us, moving with us and showing that He's here. It's not us; it's Him; we can't do those things; it's God. Besides that, in the scientific world He permitted His picture to be taken. With us, in us, around us, over us, through us, working in and out of us, oh, how wonderful. They used to sing a little song. I AM that spoke to Moses in a burning bush of fire, I AM the God of Abraham, the Bright and Morning Star. I AM the Rose of Sharon; oh, whence did you say that I came? Do you know My Father, or can you tell His Name? Oh, who do you say that I am, Or from whence did you say that I came? Do you know My Father, or can you tell His Name? I'm Alpha, Omega, the beginning from the end, I AM the whole creation, and Jesus is the Name. Amen.
29Now, in getting back to paragraph no 29 from The Rising of the Son brother Branham continues, "There never was a life lived like it; He was the Son of God. And He died and that shut it out; but when He raised again from the dead on Easter morning, then we, as His servants, are commissioned by Him to go into all the world and to bring this good news to every person: that He is a-living. And how can we do it by word only? For it is written, "The Gospel came not by word only, but through the power and the manifestation of the Holy Spirit to prove that He is alive."
30Oh,my when I reflect back upon over a a decade and a half of taking this Word to all the world, and not only teaching them concerning the relationship that Jesus had with his Father, but showing them that this same relationship is for all sons, and watching God back up this Word with signs and wonders that no man could do, but it is done regardless, then I know we are the fulfillment of what brother Branham is talking about here.
31"then we, as His servants, are commissioned by Him to go into all the world and to bring this good news to every person: that He is a-living. And how can we do it by word only? For it is written, "The Gospel came not by word only, but through the power and the manifestation of the Holy Spirit to prove that He is alive."
32And to receive word from all over the world that the brethren are begining to see the same manifestation of sons of God in their own ministries and churches, it tells me we are in line with what the prophet told us would come.
33Then brother Branham goes on to say in paragraph 30 Now, if there is another gospel, as Paul spoke to one of the groups, "I am so surprised that you turned to another gospel (which there is no other but a make-believe gospel), to a denominational fiction, turning from that good news: 'And because I live, ye live also, and I live in you; and the works that I do (John 14:12), the works that I do will identify Myself in you.'" Oh, what a Message. No wonder we've had a dark world of theology. But in the evening time there shall come Light again. There will be a resurrection in the evening time. It shall be Light at the evening time.
34And last Sunday we focused on the nature of the Word showing that every seed having a nature and that the Word of God is also a seed therefore it will also produce the same nature in sons as it did in the Son.
36Oneness 61-0211 19 They were God's examples to us, what we should be, then ever present, never failing. When they spoke, God answered. He watched them daily. Night, when they'd lay down to sleep, He watched over them. In the daytime He guided them, fed them, loved them, communed with them constantly all the time. They were in God's image, and God was in them. That's what makes a fellowship. That's what makes the union is God in His church. That's the union. Much could be said, got many places to go. United with Him is Eternal Life. And the only way we can unite with Him is to come every bit of His Word (That's right.), take every promise and believe it.
3720 Now, Eve was united until she broke one Word, or, doubted one Word being true. That separated her. Every Word, "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word." So we can be in God, united, because Adam and Eve, before the fall, afore the disbelieving of the Word, was an example of what we could be in Him. To be united with Him is Life; to be separated from Him is death. Now, if we follow His commandments...
3821 We know we make mistakes, but you mustn't look at that. It's not your mistakes, because you're always going to have them. But, you see, it's following His rules, following what He said do. Stumble and falling doesn't have one thing to do with It. A real true servant, if he'll stumble, he'll get up again. If he wobbles, God pulls him right back in the path, as long as he's in the path of duty. But if he's off of the path of duty, God's not obligated to him. But as long as he's in the path of duty, God's obligated to him, knowing that he's just a man or a woman. He's obligated to that person as long as they're in the path of duty.
3922 Now, the church now is engaged to Christ for the wedding. The wedding has never been performed yet; it will be at the wedding supper of the Lamb. So we see that the church is now engaged, like a man engaged to his wife. What does he do while they're engaged? He's just bestowing all kinds of things, sending her presents, making her feel good. Well, that's what Christ is doing to His church. He's sending us gifts of the Spirit. How can you be engaged then when you're denying these gifts exist? It's the very love tokens. It's God's token to the church. Jesus said so, "These signs shall follow them that believe."
4023 Now, keep those things in mind. The church must believe every Word, every promise, every iota, and claim It for themselves, and exercise themselves in It. If I was engaged to a girl, and I was a single man, and I'd send her something, an engagement ring, and she wouldn't wear it, then that shows she doesn't believe me. She doesn't want to be my bride. And if Christ sends His church the gifts that He promised, and they refuse them and say they're not so, they don't want to be the Bride of Christ. They are espoused to some other lover and not to Christ, the Bridegroom. So the real church keeps the promise, and keeps all, and accepts the gifts that God sends. All right.
41 24 Now, the first human beings disfellowshipped themself from believing God by disbelieving His Word and listening to a lie of the Devil. Now, that's the first thing that dis-fellowshipped this wonderful union. Now look, Adam and Eve in a position to never die, in a position to never be old, to never be sick, to never have a worry...You say, "I sure wish I could be like that." Let me... I got news for you; you are in the same position. God places that to every creature on the earth in the same position.
4225 What was the agreement? "If you'll keep My Word. If, My Word, if you'll keep It, believe It and act upon It..." But the very first time that Eve disbelieved took one Word away from what God said, it broke off fellowship with that great union. And the minute that the church disbelieves any one Word of God's Bible, and places It somewhere else, then they break off that wonderful fellowship that's offered to them, and to be separated. As soon as she did that, death set in her mortal being, not only her mortal, but her spiritual being. She broke off relationship with God the minute she disbelieved. And no man can believe...Here it is. No man, no woman -can believe the Devil's lie until they have disbelieved God's Truth. No one can believe the Devil's lie until they have disbelieved God's Truth. So, you see, Eve, Adam, where it places us this morning.
43And we examined last Sunday that the Word has a nature, and will reflect the nature in you. And if the nature of Christ is not reflecting in you then you have a gospel with a different nature and thus you are reflecting the spirit of a different nature.
44And these two natures cannot live together. One of them must be killed off. The Apostle Paul said, "I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live, yet not I , but Christ that Liveth in Me, and the life that I now live I live by The Faith of The Son of God Who gave His life for me." So, then as Paul said, "To live is Christ, to die is but gain."
45Now we know that every life has it's own nature. The word nature according to Webster's dictionary means The essential character of a thing, the quality that makes something what it is, it's essence of being or inborn character. It's innate disposition or inherent tendencies. It's kind....
46Again we read from Genesis 1: 11 that Every Seed will bring forth after it's kind. Therefore, the very essence of Life itself is to reproduce itself in another. Every life form must reproduce itself (its own nature) in another which is called an offspring. It is impossible for one kind to produce another kind. Therefore simple Bible logic would tell you that Darwin's theory of evolution is nothing but hype and idiocy.
47we read earlier that Brother Branham said, "If you had the life of Dillinger you'd rob banks. If you had the life of Beethoven you would compose music." So you see, you can't have a Life form without having the nature of that Life form.
48Therefore if God's own Life is forming in you , then you will begin to show forth the very nature of His Life in you. Then "the things, He did you will do also." Jesus gave us Mark 16 and John 14:12 as promises that the law of Life in Christ will produce Christ in us..
49That is why brother Branham went to great lengths to teach us that if we have been quickened by the Spirit of God and are born again, then we will and must by the nature that is in us, by the new birth, stick with every Word of God.
50Now, this evening I would like to continue this thought as we examine further about these two natures that we have, the one given us at birth through the flesh by an act of the flesh and the other nature given us at our new birth. Then if we have the ability to actually possess two natures at one time, we know that unless these natures are the same, they cannot coexist in this earthly tent of our habitation without conflict. One will rise up against the other and warfare will ensue.
52Now let's See these two natures at their peak and investigate this further. Now remember, bother Branham taught us that if we have the Spirit or Life of Christ in us then the evidence of that is that we will believe the Word for the season, and we will do what he did. We will enter into the Word for the Season and become one with it.
54John 8:37... I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you. Notice, he says I know that you are a product of Abraham, and therefore you claim his life in you and therefore His nature in you, but something is really wrong here, because you do not reflect his nature in and through you.
56John 8:38 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father. He lets them know here that His Father and their father are different. By this time they get the drift and they try to repute what he is alluding to.
57John 8:39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham. Again he tells them if they really were from Abraham they would have his life and therefore his nature. But because their nature is not compatible with the nature of Abraham, therefore they could not possibly have been his offspring as pertaining to the lineage of God.
58John 8:40 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham. Notice now how He begins to let them know that the things they are doing in opposition to the Words of God shows that they have not the Spirit or Life or nature of the one they are claiming to have come from. He tells them because they would easily murder one who tells them the truth, it shows where their roots are from. He of course is alluding to Cain.
59Now let's just go back a moment and follow this through back at the beginning right after the great interruption took place. Now remember, God had said in Genesis 1: 11 that "every seed would bring forth after its own kind." And we see by Webster's definition of the word Kind means: origin, nature, or essential character.
61Genesis 3:14-16,20 14 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: 15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. 16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.
63Here we see the great interruption take place. Eve cohabitated with the Serpent who was of another kind or nature or essential character and so she became pregnant with his seed. The Life stream of God became polluted and by mixing or hybreeding one life to another, it introduced a breed of nature that became violent.
67Genesis 3:17-19 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; 18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; 19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
70Genesis 1: 29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
7130 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. 31 And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
72Now apparently the fact that they would have to eat herbs was not so bad yet this blessing given in chapter 1 becomes a curse in chapter 3. But notice more specifically verse 17 the curse is upon the soil. The ground. And what do we see Cain doing the very first time we hear of him? He is tilling the soil.
74It's a sign of a person in bondage. a bond slave. So Cain had become enslaved by his won false doctrine that it was by fruits, and not by the hybreeding through the blood that the curse was upon them. And Cain had become a bond-slave to the soil. A bond-slave, a legalist. And God cursed the soil so what does Cain do? He goes to the soil for a living. He tries and tries to break the soil, to break the curse but to no avail. This reminds me of the man John Bunyan wrote in His Pilgrim's progress whose name was Mr. Legalist. Mr. Legalist tried to carry his sins up the hill in a big sack and as he got further up the hill the hill became steeper and he kept falling back down the hill and then he would get up and start all over. And this scene would continue without end. Day in and day out.
75But Abel did not go for legalism, he went after the easy way out, to watch over the sheep. The sheep didn't need to be tilled, they just ate and slept ate and slept. All he had to do was to keep his eyes open and watch out for them and make sure they ate proper food. Then they would produce what he would have need of. You didn't see him tilling or becoming a bond slave to the soil like Cain. He was free.
78So watch his nature go into action. Genesis 4: 8 So Cain went to talk to his brother. Now what do you suppose they talked about? Didn't God tell him he had not rightly divided? So he went to his brother to get the right division of the Word because after all, God had vindicated his brother's revelation or understanding by accepting his offering.
79And we saw the same scenario as in John chapter 8 between Jesus and the Jew. Abel, a Son of God is talking to his half brother who is serpent seed. Now Abel never went to Cain and forced his revelation on him, Cain went to him to talk and find out. And when Abel spoke the Word it so infuriated Cain that his nature took over and he slew his brother.
80Remember, Abel's sacrifice was a slain lamb right? And what happened to him? He became his sacrifice. And what is a sacrifice but your revelation given back to God. So you become your revelation when you step into it. Why? Because you can only do what is revealed to you. And your nature controls what you are and what your responses will be. And if you have the nature of Jesus Christ, then you will respond like He responded to the Word of God.
81Notice. Abel became his revelation. A lamb slain. Now which of the prophets were not put to death? They all came the way Jesus Came? Why? Because His nature was in them. And If we were in Christ before the foundations of the world then His nature will have to be in you. Then we must know what HE was then so we will know what nature we will have.
82Ephesians 1:3-4 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: 4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: So we were in Him back then right? And what Was He then?
83Revelations 13:8 The Lamb slain from the foundations of the world. And just think as that lamb, we were in Him then. So then what nature will we have? "Butt Pastor," Butt I think" Butt I don't like it" Butt My opinion is"...Goats butt, sheep just follow.
What nature do we have today? That will tell us of whom we have our source. That will tell us what Life we have in us. So we see Cain was a murderer to begin with. And Jesus told the Pharisees that they were of their father the devil, just like Cain because when He attempted to give them God's Word they fought it tooth and nail.
