1Let us pick up at the paragraph we opened with on Sunday of our new Study of brother Branham's sermon The Rising of the sun 65-0418M P:20 "The first time the sun rose in Genesis, it was bringing a message that there will be life upon the earth: mortal life. But this time when the sun rose, there was a--a dual sun-rising, another son-rising. It was a not only s-u-n rising, it was a S-o-n had risen to bring Eternal Life to all God's promised seed, that by foreknowledge He's seen laying upon the earth. No more could the botany life live back there at the beginning without the s-u-n to bring it to life; no more than today, when sons of God is upon the earth, it take the S-o-n Light to bring them to Eternal Life. His chosen ones that He knew before the foundation of the world, He had chosen them in Himself before the foundation of the world. And on Easter morning then, in this dirt somewhere, laid our bodies at that time, for we are the dust of the earth; and in heaven there was a book of memory, and His attributes was in Him, knowing that because this Son of God raised, It would also raise to Life every son that was foreordained to this great time. He knew it would be, and what a more glorious son-rise that was than it was at the beginning, at time when it first dawn."
2Now, we are talking about the predestined seeds of God that God placed in the earth in Spirit form even when the earth was without form and void. In other words, when it was still Spoken Word, we as spoken Word were also placed here in this earth at that time.
3Works is faith expressed 65-1126 P:65 Like God in Genesis 1, He said, "Let there be light. Let there be this. Let there be that." Created man in His Own image, image of God created He them, male and female, and there was nothing on the earth yet. Then we find out in Genesis 2 here He made man in His Own image. There was no man to till the soil, after the rest the creation. What was it? It's His Words; He was speaking It. And when He spoke, He said, "Let there be light." There might've not been light for eight hundred years afterward, might not have been no light, but He said It. And as long as He said It, "Let there be a palm tree. Let there be an oak tree. Let there be this," them seeds was forming down beneath that water. That's right. And in the season, in the time, in its own season, it brought forth. It can't fail; it's God's Word. It just can't fail; It'd been expressed.
5Therefore, what I wish to bring out this evening is that in order for the seed to come forth there must be a certain season and a certain light condition during that season, for that seed to some into manifestation. Because even if the seed comes up because of the light and water (Word) yet if that light shifts into another season before the seed is matured there cannot be a harvest.
The winter light is not at the right angle and does not produce a warmth to produce a crop, so there is a seed for a season, and a season for every seed. And that is what I wish to address this evening.
6Christ Revealed in His own Word - 65-0822M 65 The thing that's the matter with the message today is, those who obtain it in their hearts must lay in the presence of the Son to get ripened. See? You can pick up the message, and then let the Son bake all the greenness out of you (See?), make you Matured Christians. You see what I mean? God's coming soon to receive His church, and we must have that type of Christians for Him to receive. The wheat's got to get ripe. All right.
7And there is a certain process every seed must go through in order for it to come to a ripening experience. And Paul tells us in Ephesians chapter 4 concerning this process that is God ordained, but we will get to that when the right time progresses in this mini series on a Seed for Every Season. That will come up in no 3 in this series.
8Things that are to be - 65-1205 28 Now, you grew from your birth... When you was born and presented into this world, God knew that you were going to be here in this earth, and you grew from birth to maturity. Things that seem so strange to you in your young womanhood, young boyhood, as children, now seems very real. You couldn't understand it when you was a child, but now as you become adult, you begin to understand and find out that everything was just set just right. And you... It really means something to you now. 29. So is it in your spiritual birth. You do things that you don't understand when you're a little baby, come to the altar and you give your life to Christ. You do such strange things. You wonder why you did it. But after while when you Mature, as Matured Christians, then you understand it. See? There's something picks up and you see why you had to do it. Your spiritual birth... Your natural birth types your spiritual. How it fitted to you. In this life as you grew, everything fitted right in, because you were made for that.
9Notice in this quote brother Branham shows us the type between the natural process of a seed ripening and a Spiritual seed ripening and that both processes are the same. The natural typing the spiritual, always.
10Seed not heir with shuck - 65-0218 40. That's the way with people who profess Christ. Many of them look like Christians, try to act like Christians, but you've got to have Christ on the inside of you, which is the Word made manifest, or it'll never Mature into a real Bible believing Christian. It'll always be a denominational something. It cannot live, because there's no life in it to live.
11Notice that he tells us that in order to come to maturity the life of the seed must first be there, or it will never come to maturity. So we are not just talking about church people here, we are talking about truly born again sons and daughters of God.
14That is what we will deal with tonight, the fact that there must be a certain seed for a certain season. For "there is a seed for every season". And in order to understand what seed there is to be in your day you must first understand what day you are living in. Then we can understand what seed is supposed to be manifested in this season.
16Therefore we see that when it comes to feeding the people, the minister of God is supposed to know himself what meat is for the proper season. Can you imagine being invited to a supper and the man of the house opening up a ham that has sat in the closet for ten years, it would be full of maggots. And no one would ever want to set down to eat meat that is out of season.
18Turn on the light 64-0125 P:10 And we know that in the beginning it must've been foggy and dismal and dark, as the world was turning, and when God knowed that He had a need of light. Now, His seed was already in the earth, because He'd planted it there. Now He needed light to bring forth that seed, to make that seed live, because the seed was already there. Just like it is in each age, God has foretold us what would take place in each age. The only thing He needs is the manifestation of the Light of God upon that Scripture to make it live for that age. And it will do it as long as the Light can get to the Word. If the Word's germitized, It'll make it live if it's a promise for that day. You might plant wheat at one time, or grain at another time. Some come slower than other, because it depends on the season. God's Word comes in season, the law and the grace, and so forth, as we've went on down through the ages. And each time it's lit up by the manifestation of the Light spreading forth the Life that's in the Seed.
21Then we may also assume that if a word is spoken in its proper season and that word is good, then what of a word spoken out of season? What if I made a promise to give you tickets to an event that you really wanted to attend. What if I made that promise to you in advance of the event? That would be good right? But what if I made that promise after the event had already come and gone? Then that promise would not do you any good, and it then would be no good.
22Paradox a 62-0128A P:26 A leaf hangs on a tree to serve a purpose. And you and I are hanging on a Tree of Life after we've accept Christ. And after while when the season changes, the life goes out of that leaf down into the root, comes back again next year bringing a new leaf. And we Christians who believe in Christ have Eternal Life, and hanging on the Tree of Life... But someday this old leaf will drop off, return back to the God that give it, only to come again in another season. This season we are divided, we're men and women. And all it is, is a seeding season. The tree continually year after year to bear record and testimony of the living God...
24Now, if he said we are in a seeding season now, and that was in 1962, then that would be the former rain, the Moureh or teaching rain or the teaching season. That was then, but there is a reason we plant seeds and that is to produce a harvest. Therefore if they were in the former rain at that time, them the people must have to wait for a harvest season to begin before they can expect a harvest. Therefore, we cannot expect harvest until we are in the season of harvest. and then we must know what seeds will manifest in with chat characteristics in order to harvest them.
25Revelation chapter one 60-1204M P:46 Now, the 3rd verse He announces the blessings; listen at this. "Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand". What time is at hand? The time these things take place, when this Revelation of Jesus Christ is completed in each church age. Now, the reason He wrote it like this, if he'd have said... Well, now, if he'd... They was looking for Him to... If it'd been revealed. If it would've been revealed to John that He was going to come as soon as those churches there was finished... That's the way John thought it. But if it was, them churches, as soon as they was finished, they come... If he knew, if it had been revealed to him there was going to be seven long church ages, several thousand years, or several hundreds of years, then there wouldn't be no reason of waiting, they'd just live their church age out. Therefore, God spoke it and it wasn't revealed to them. It wasn't revealed to Martin Luther, the things that John Wesley knew about the Scripture. It isn't revealed to the Baptists what the Pentecostals knows about Scripture. Because it's in a different age; it's a different time, and God reveals His things just in the season. Oh, You can't plant corn in the springtime and reap at the same time. You plant a seed and it grows to maturity. God plants His Word, and then It grows right out, and then we look back and say, "There It was." Why, sure, we see It after It's been revealed.
27Thirsting for life 59-0613 P:19 Did you ever lay a sidewalk? Some of you man, no doubt, have done it. And just scoop up all the dirt, and lay the sidewalk out, pour it was concrete. But then in the summer time when you go to cut the grass, do you know where the grass is the thickest at? Right by the side of that walk. It's twice as thick there as anywhere else. Why is it? Down beneath that concrete, you covered over some seeds. But just as sure as that sunshine begins to bathe the earth, and the season's right, that seed's got life in it. And you can't hide life? It'll work its way right over those grains of concrete till it comes out, so it can lift up its little head and praise God. You just can't hide life. That's the reason if you've got Eternal Life, they may bury you in the sea, or cremate your body, but you'll live again when Jesus comes. There's no way to keep you down. You can't hide real life.
29Trying to do God a service 65-0718M P:21 Like the heat of the sun to open up. When it's tender and young, bring it out of the ground, the seed, then give it its leaves in another stage of the sun. The hot sun will kill it if it's the ripening seed or ripening time. So He regulates the sun and regulates nature to meet His Word. He regulates the church, the predestinated, the Bride, to meet the season that they are living in. Even nature itself tells us today, as we see the nations breaking, the earth sinking in; the handwriting's on the wall. We see the church and the states it's in. We see the Bride and the state she's in. And we know by nature that the church is getting ready to leave. What a glorious time. It's a time that all the prophets longed to see this hour.
30Deuteronomy 32:1-2 Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth. 2 My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass:
31Numbers 28:2 Command the children of Israel, and say unto them, My offering, and my bread for my sacrifices made by fire, for a sweet savor unto me, shall ye observe to offer unto me in their due season.
32Now, what if Moses had came with Noah’s Message? It wouldn’t have worked. And what if John the Baptist would have came with Moses Message? It wouldn’t have worked. So you See, God has a message for each season, and a certain rain for each season in order to produce the intended crop for that season.
34Now, this evening I would like to show forth how that God has a Promise for each season, or a Word for each season, and He has also ordained a Seed for each season to catch that Word or promise, and to manifest that Word and to produce the fruit that is ordained to become manifested in each season.
36#1) There is a Seed for every season.
#2) That Seed is a Word That God has ordained for each season that he sends like rain (or doctrine) to produce the fruit for the season.
#3) When this Seed manifests who it is, this manifestation of the Seed vindicates that this Seed was indeed for this Season.
#4) This manifestation of the Seed life by being quickened by the Word for the season, is the evidence that the Seed is God's Seed.
#5) All other Seeds will not be quickened to Life By the Word or Light for the season, but will reject the Word for the season. Not the Word but the True understanding of it.
37Now, we said point number One is that "There is a Seed for every season" So what do we mean, "a seed for every season?" Well first we must ask ourselves what we mean by the word "seed". What is a seed? Webster says it is the "source, origin, or beginning of anything. A carrier of Life.
38So what is a seed? A Seed is a carrier of Life. And it speaks of predestination, because everything that seed will ever manifest in its life cycle it already has in it; every attribute, every characteristic, every expression. That is why a seed is the purest form of predestination.
39The bride must come to a place where they have no contrary thought from what was vindicated and revealed to us. We won't go back to previous thoughts that were in error, but we immediately go to God’s thoughts for the hour in which we live.
40Luke 1: 19 - 20 And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings. And, behold, thou shalt be dumb, and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall be performed, because thou Believest not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season.
42In John 1:1-4 we read, In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
43Notice in verse 5 we read, "darkness does not comprehend it". Now the word comprehend in the Greek is the word ( katalambano = and it means, "to take eagerly, to seize upon and possess, to apprehend and comprehend."
45And in John 1:14 we read “the word became flesh”, And because they did not comprehend it they missed it.
John 6: 63 - 66 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
50So if everything has a season, we must ask ourselves this question? What season are we in? What is my season? Why am I here? What is my end? And if you know what the promise is for the season in which you live, your whole focus becomes the focus of God's purpose and plan for that season.
511 Peter 1:3-7 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, (you see it is waiting for the right time, the right season) Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. (therefore this time which is called the last time is epochal and strategic in its significance.) Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: (so we see there is a season of trials and testings to bring the fruit to perfection.) That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
52Now the Wuest translation says, "You who are constantly being kept guarded by the power of God through Faith, for a salvation that is ready to be revealed in a last season which is epochal and strategic in it's significance." and in verse 6 & 7, the trials will produce in you a crop that is in the image of the Life of the Original seed.
Hebrews 6:4-8 For it is impossible for those who have been once for enlightened, those who have tasted of the Heavenly gift and have been made companions of the Holy Ghost Himself being brought long side and made aware of His presence, by tasting the goodness of God's Vindicated Word and have been exposed to the Powers of the coming age, having fallen away and deviated from the truth, it is impossible for them to ever come to a change of the mind again, seeing that they have crucified themselves along with the Son of God, and have subjected Him to public disgrace.
53Now catch carefully what Paul says right after this... "For the land that drinks in the rain (doctrine) that often falls upon it and that produces a crop that is useful to those who have sewn it" (And who did the sewing?, the Son of Man. It is this land which produces the crop which receives the blessings from God.) "But the land that produces thorns and thistles is worthless to the one who sewed the land and is in danger of being cursed. In the end it will be burned."
54Psalm 1: 1-3 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight [is] in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
57Galatians 6:7-9 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
582 John 8-9 Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.
59Trying to do God a service 65-0718M P:35 When somebody says they got a revelation to baptize people in the Name of the Father, Son, Holy Ghost, that's contrary to the Word. None of the rest of them ever did. When they say that, "Oh, we're going to stand..." and this, that, and the other, and so forth, that's contrary to the Word. When they say they don't believe in serpent's seed, that's contrary to the Word. All these other things, that's contrary to the Word. It must be with the Word and at the season.
60Show us the father 62-0722 P:20 Now, this afternoon we're going to pray for every person, and I don't want to keep you long. I've kept you long each night. I would say, "Forgive me." But brother, sister, somehow, keeping the message just as simple as I could, I know that seed has been planted. It'll bring forth in its season. And you pray for me as I go along. I'll always be praying and asking God to help you.
61End time sign seed 62-0319 P:54 Now, we could go on with this for hours, but let's just look at some of the Scriptures here just a minute, that looks to the seed that's been planted for the end time. If that seed of... Job's spoken word, Isaiah spoke of it, every man of God, every prophet of God that He made his secrets known to (even David, Isaiah, Jeremiah, all the rest of them), spoke of that coming Seed. And when the season come, it was exactly that way. It always does. It can't fail. It's God's Word. It's eternal. It can't fail. And all of us know that Jesus was the Word.
62Unconditional covenant 54-0306 P:23 Oh, something about the Word of God that when a man speaking of It, he trembles. And another thing, It blesses his soul in such a way; it puts something in him that nothing else can do, because it's the Word, the written Word, a Seed that will bring forth in its season, just as God has promised it to do.
63Jehovah Jireh 1 64-0402 P:62 Down in the heart of that tree, no matter how many branches is pruned off, will come forth the royal seed of Abraham. Hallelujah. God promised it. God will do it. He said He would do it. "I will restore all the years that the denominations eat. I'll restore all the years. I pruned the thing off. But yet there'll come a vine out of the heart of it. He'll be like a tree that's planted by the rivers of water, a man that meditates in the Word of God day and night," not to a creed or a denomination, but "meditates in the Word day and night, he'll be like a tree that's planted by the rivers of water...?... branches shall not wither. He'll bring forth his fruit in the seasons."
64Confirmation and evidence 62-0621E P:42 I stood with two of my friends here in February, when we were out into Arizona, and we were out at the mountains, been out there hunting for a few days after the meetings. And we seen two stars, how close they were, and I said, "Perhaps that they are many millions of light years away from one another, farther than we are from them." And I said, "To think that the God Who made the universe, the God Who made the solar system, Who made the heavens and the earth, and created them by His spoken word..."Remember, a word is a thought expressed. God thought it. Then when He expressed it, it has to happen, for the world was framed by the Word of God. And things were made out of things that do not appear. It was God's Word. He thought it, and He spoke it, and it has to come to pass. It's a seed that's growing, and, marvelously, that has to bring forth its season.
65Revelation chapter one 60-1204M P:46 Now, the 3rd verse He announces the blessings; listen at this. Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. What time is at hand? The time these things take place, when this Revelation of Jesus Christ is completed in each church age. Now, the reason He wrote it like this, if he'd have said... Well, now, if he'd... They was looking for Him to... If it'd been revealed. If it would've been revealed to John that He was going to come as soon as those churches there was finished... That's the way John thought it. But if it was, them churches, as soon as they was finished, they come... If he knew, if it had been revealed to him there was going to be seven long church ages, several thousand years, or several hundreds of years, then there wouldn't be no reason of waiting, they'd just live their church age out. Therefore, God spoke it and it wasn't revealed to them. It wasn't revealed to Martin Luther, the things that John Wesley knew about the Scripture. It isn't revealed to the Baptists what the Pentecostals knows about Scripture. Because it's in a different age; it's a different time, and God reveals His things just in the season. Oh, You can't plant corn in the springtime and reap at the same time. You plant a seed and it grows to maturity. God plants His Word, and then It grows right out, and then we look back and say, "There It was." Why, sure, we see It after It's been revealed.
