1Wednesday night we began a minis series within our study of Brother Branham's sermon, "It is the rising of the Son".

2We began to look at the thought that there is a Seed for every season.

3We saw brother Branham speak on the Seeds that were in the earth in paragraph 20 of "Rising of the Son" and he talked about how they had to wait until there came a predestined light to bring to life these predestined seeds.

4The 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."

5We broke down the thought of a Seed for a Season and a Season for a Seed into 5 stages.

6#1) There is a Seed for every season. This we spoke on last week, and showed you quite a few Scriptures and Quotes concerning this.

7From his sermon, Trying to do God a service - 65-0718M 20 Brother Branham said, "He reveals It in His seasons, because It is a Seed; and as It grows and Matures He reveals Himself.

8And from his sermon, There is a man here that can Turn on the light 64-0125 P:10 he said, " 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.

9Notice once again brother Branham lets us know that there are seeds for certain seasons, and the seed life is dependent upon the right season to manifest what Seed life is in the seed.

10Again from his sermon Thirsting for life 59-0613 P:19 Brother Branham said, " 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.

11And at the Resurrection season all Predestined Seed of God with eternal Life in them will come up right on time. The season is only for a specified time, and during that specified time all the predestined sons and daughters of God will come forth in the resurrection that have been planted in death.

12But there is another season we are to look for and that is the Harvest season where sons and daughters of God are to manifest as sons and daughters of God, and that are to be conformed to the image of the first born son.

13You might ask, How many are you talking about preacher? And the answer is as many as God has fore-ordained to be conformed to the image of the first born son.

14Romans 8:29 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.

15When is this to happen? It's to happen at the harvest time, during the latter rain when sons of God come to maturity as sons. It is to happen before the adoption or placing of sons takes place because these sons that are predestined must be conformed to the image of the first born son in order to be positionally placed in the family and ready for adoption.

16The Apostle Paul told us in Romans 8:15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. And the Spirit of Adoption is not the adoption itself, but the Spirit of Adoption is the Holy Spirit in us that makes us sons, and we are sons when we are born again, but we must be the right kind of son in order to become adopted sons.

17That is what brother Branham taught us in his 18 sermons on "here ye Him". And we know that Jesus was the right kind of Son, because he was an obedient son, and he is the pattern for all sons. So we are looking at a time when sons of God will come into the very image of the first born son, and that will be before the adoption and placing of sons takes place. And Paul taught us our adoption s when we receive our change of the body.

18Romans 8:23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, (that's the Baptism of the Holy Spirit) even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, (that means which is ) the redemption of our body.

19Now, listen to this quote from brother Branham's sermon Hear ye Him 60-0313 P:37 Because he explains how that Jesus was the right kind of Son, and then after explaining that he tells us that is the way we must be also for our placing as sons.

20"Now, you see, Jesus had proven to God that He'd been the right kind of Son. And God took Him up on the top of the mountain, brought witnesses out there--heavenly witnesses and earthly witnesses--and He clothed Him in immortality. When they looked up, they said, "His garments shined like the sun." A supernatural something taken place. His garments glistened like the sun in its middle of the day, as white as they could be. God placed on Him the robe of immortality, showing that He had received Him. That's the thing that God will do to His sons here on earth some day. He will call you aside, Church, if you'll only obey Him and stay on the Word and believe it. And He will place into the Church, before the coming of Jesus Christ... He will place into the Church... All the powers that Christ had in Him will be in the Church. All that God was, He poured into Jesus; all that Jesus was, He pours into the Church. God wanting His work done, He sent it into His Son; the Son wanting the work done, sent it into the Church. "At that day you'll know that I'm in the Father, the Father in Me, and I in you, and you in Me." At that day, because the same power of God, was in Jehovah God, rested in Jesus Christ. The same power that rested in Jesus Christ, rests in the placed sons in the body of Christ.

21So this is to take place before the end of the harvest season. Listen all you have to do is read the entire 8th chapter of the book of Romans and you will see the order of the last season, the harvest season when all this is to take place. And unless you have the same Spirit that raised up Jesus from the dead dwelling in you, you will not be a partaker of this end time harvest season.

22Now, I know people want to put this off until the Millennium, but brother Branham said it is a promise for now, and he further stated, "we won't need it in the millennium."

23Explaining healing and Jairus 54-0216 P:37 The devil's just trying to scare you out of something. He's trying to put something off somewhere else, say, "Some of these days you'll be this." You are now. Now, we're sons of God. Now, we're seated together in heavenly places. Now, we have all powers in heavens and the earth. See? Now, we have it. Not in the millennium, we won't need it then. We got it now. Right now we are the sons of God. "It does not appear what we shall be, but we know we'll be like Him."What you are here is a reflection of what you are somewhere else. "Those who He called, He justifies." Is that right? "Those who He justified, He has glorified." Already in the Presence of the Father, we have a glorified body. Whew! Wasn't that deep? All right. We'll find out whether it's right or not. "If this earthly tabernacle be dissolved, we have one already waiting." Is that right? That's right. So right now, and what we are there, is a reflection. Here, what we are here, is a reflection of what we are somewhere else. So if your deeds are evil, you know where it comes from. You know where your other body's a waiting.

24Now, I would like to ask you how many preachers are you hearing that from? How many tapes listeners are talking about this? But he said it, and why don't they talk about it? because they don't believe it or they would be talking about it.

25From his sermons, Expectations and what love is 54-0228A P:41 brother Branham said, "Now, if he hasn't got the Holy Spirit in there, he's got nothing but just his mind to rest on it, so he just can't comprehend the things of God. He doesn't know them. The natural mind can't understand the things of God; they're foolish to him.

26Now, that wasn't brother Branham's words that was the Words of the Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 2. 11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God knows. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

27Now, brother Branham continues, "Now, the Pentecostal or Full Gospel, you are... The one thing that I find that's one of the greatest hindrance among us, is that you're trying to place the great things of God, yet to come, when you're right in the middle of it now. That's right. Now, you say, "Just wait till some..." Well, that could be the millennium where we won't need any healings and things. That's the next age to be issued in. Now we're in the Holy Ghost age. Now you are the sons of God. Now we're seated together in heavenly places, not we will be, we are now, this afternoon, right here now, sons and daughters of God seated together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. There we are. See? All things are possible then.

28And from his sermon, Water from the rock 55-0224 P:38 When they entered into that land, then the manna ceased to fall, a very beautiful type, as the Holy Spirit falling today, which is the Manna from heaven. The day that we enter the millennium, Christ, the Son of David, will set on David's throne. Amen. Won't need any Holy Spirit then, because Christ will be here Himself, in a body form, as King Jesus. Then all the nations is sure going to beat their plowshares, or their pruning, or swords into plowshares, and war is over then. Going to have some rest around here.

29Now listen, some people actually think brother Branham is going to set on "the throne of David" for a thousand years. That's false doctrine. Well, you say how do you know people are preaching that? I know because I've talked to them. Thee are people who won't set under a five-fold minister because these are tapes only people, yet they fill their minds with their own thoughts. They say "there is only one Voice of God to this generation", and I'll say amen to that. But then they say Brother Branham is that voice and I say just a minute, now. You had better know what you are talking about.

30The Apostle Paul said there is one Spirit and one Body, and everyone who is baptized with that same Spirit are part of that one body. The body of Christ is not made up of one member.

31Paul also said in Hebrews 5:12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.

32Look the oracles of God comes from the Greek word "Logion", and speaks of the "utterance of God". That's what the definition is of the Greek word logion, and that means that all who are in that one body with that one spirit become the very voice of God. One Voice because there is one body.

33And Peter told us in 1 Peter 4:11 If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; (Let him speak as the voice of God.) if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

34And God's vindicated prophet said in his sermon, Spoken word original seed 62-0318E P:175 Notice, what harmony. Jesus never did anything until seen of the Father or the Father showed Him first: (Harmony between God and Christ. See? John 5:19) So will the Bride, and He shows Her His Word of Life (He shows Her), and she receives It. She never doubts it. Nothing can harm Her, not even death; for if the Seed be planted, the water will raise it up again. Amen. (Now, I got a great big "Hallelujah.") Here is the secret: the Word is in the Bride and the mind of Christ to know what He wants done with the Word, and She does it in His Name. She has THUS SAITH THE LORD. Then it is germitized; so the Holy Spirit waters it until it is grown and serves its purpose. They do only His will. (Amen. I'll believe that.) No one can persuade them different. They have THUS SAITH THE LORD, or they keep still. Then they will do the works of God. For it is Himself in them, continuing His Word to fulfill as He did complete in His day. All things when He was here--He did not complete all when He was here, for it was not time yet.

35Therefore, whether it be God's prophet or someone who is perfectly echoing the Words that went forth from that prophet, it is the same Voice if it is the same Spirit. Now, I know there are people that don't want to believe that, but that is the truth. Just like brother Vayle told me, he said, "Brian, there are people who are saying that when I am gone, teaching will be over, but that is wrong, because the Holy Ghost is the teacher, and as long as the Holy Ghost is in the earth there will be teaching, because he is the teacher."

36And that is what the Voice of God said, if we believe the Bible is the voice of God.

37Israel In Egypt 53-0325 104 Well, they say, "I don't need anybody to teach me. Glory to God, I got the Holy Ghost." Well then, the Holy Ghost was wrong when It said It set some in the church, teachers. God put them in the church as teachers. That settles it. Why'd He put teachers in there, if the Holy Ghost is going to do all the teaching? Huh. All right. See? What people needs is their brains baptized, besides their water. That's right. All right.

38Now what I am trying to address to you this morning is this: namely, we are to receive an understanding first, (that is the part the True Five Fold Ministry play in this great drama) They bring the True Understanding of the scripture to our minds. Next, this New understanding creates a desire in our heart for God's Word. Finally, God sends forth His Word into our hearts by the Holy Ghost who is the Teacher and He anoints the understanding in our heart thus becoming a Spiritual Revelation. That is why John said in 1 John 2: 21 "that we have an unction or anointing from the Holy One, that we might know all things."

39This Revelation then takes over the guiding of our whole body, Soul and Spirit thus perfecting the believer by the washing of water by the Word. So in effect every fiber of our body is becoming subject to the Word of God which lives and abides in our hearts, bringing us into captivity to the Word for the day we live in and bringing us into subjection to it. Thus the sacrifice becomes a living sacrifice, not just a mental conception. And a s that it actually changes the actions done in the body.

40And The Voice of God said, "God set in the church a Apostle, Prophets, pastors evangelists and teachers, for the perfecting of the church", so tell me how you going to get perfected or mature without the gift God set in the church. if you say you can, then you're adding to the Word and you got tribulation brother, and if you try to take the five-fold gift of God out and say we Got one Voice and that is William Branham's voice, then you have taken away from the Word of God and you will have your name taken from the Book of Life. Those are not my words they are God's Word.

41Ephesians 4:4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. 7 But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. 8 Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. 9 (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? 10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.) 11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, (That word perfecting means maturing) for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, (remember there is only one Faith because there is One Lord, and how you going to come to that unity of that One Faith which is the revelation of Jesus Christ) and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, (a mature man) unto the measure of the stature (character) of the fulfilling of Christ: 14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

42Now, I ask you, if God set in the church a five-fold gift to bring the church to maturity, then how you going to bypass that and come to maturity just listening to tapes. He said the five-fold gift is not only to bring you to maturity but will help you grow up so you don't get enticed by every wind of doctrine.

431 Corinthians 12:28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.

44Blind Bartimaeus 59-0408 P:31 Now, in the Church, He has sent gifts. Some are apostles. Apostle and a missionary is the same word, meaning, "one sent." Why the missionary only--wanted to be called a missionary, I don't know why. Because a missionary and an apostle both means, "one sent." A missionaries or--prophets, apostles, prophets, teachers, evangelists, and pastors. That's the office of the Church. And these offices should be alive with the Holy Spirit, not set in by man, but set in by the Holy Spirit in each church. Apostles, prophets, teachers, evangelists, pastors--these are offices that God set in the Church. Man has nothing to do with it. God puts them in the Church.

45Blind Bartimaeus 56-0414 P:49And God set in the Church first, what? Missionaries, or apostles; apostle and missionary, as I told you, taught you, is the same thing, "one sent." Apostles, prophets, teachers, evangelist, pastors, God set in the Church for the perfecting of the Church. That's Divine gifts that God foreordained and set into the Church. See? Those are for the perfecting of the Church. Jesus speaks through His pastor, speaks through His teacher, speaks through His seer, His prophet, speaks through His missionary to the countries, and so forth. That's His gifts that's He's put in the Church.

46Now, that ought to settle that question forever. God set these five gifts in the church for the perfecting, so don't tell me you can get perfected or mature by denying thee five gifts exist. That's cultish.

47Way back the 62-1123 P:96 But the Holy Spirit in predestination foreordained gifts; God has set in the church, not what some elder laid his hands on. God set in the church first apostles, then prophets, and so forth. God set them in there. They're Divine gifts foreordained of God. Before Jeremiah the prophet was ever borned, God said, "I knowed you 'fore you was even in your mother's belly, and ordained you a--a prophet to the nations before you ever come out of the womb." Is that right? He had nothing to do with it. God does that. He's still God.

48We would see Jesus 62-0627 P:77 I could not do it. I cannot bring Him. It takes all of us together to do it. I'm just a part of Him, and you're a part of Him. But if you're sick and needy, I'm your brother. And they... God set in the church... Now, there's nine spiritual gifts goes in each local body, which is tongues, interpretation of tongues, and prophecies, and so forth. But there is five predestinated offices of the church: apostles, prophets, teachers, pastors and evangelists. That's what God set in the church. The Holy Spirit... That's a office. The Holy Spirit might fall on one tonight and speak in tongues, and the other give the prophecy, and--and so forth. And then next night It might be on somebody else, and somebody else, like that. That's local gifts in the body to keep us straight. But in the church alone, five offices: apostles (means missionaries), apostles, prophets, teachers, pastors, and evangelists, God sets those in the church. Now, let's believe with all of our heart that through these ministering gifts that the great God of heaven will send Christ among us tonight, that we'll see Jesus. Let us pray now as we bow our heads.

49Influence 63-0112 P:35 Paul said, "If a trumpet gives an uncertain sound, who'll know how to prepare himself for battle?" Now, but when the Gospel gives a sound, Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever, and we watch it and see that it's the truth, and it's with the Word, that's the thing that influences a real duck. Now, there's others on the pond, like water guineas and so forth. They have another way, mud hens, and all such. But they stay their own way. But the real duck goes on. God placed that little duck there and give him that, because God placed him to be that. And now, God has set in the church... God, not the organization, not the achievement of man to make bishops and so forth, presbyters, but God set in the church, first, apostles (That's missionaries.), secondarily prophets, teachers, pastors, evangelists. God set them in the church, and every bugle will blow the same, the same Gospel. See? If he's a prophet, he blows the bugle of a prophet. He foretells the things that is to come and hits every time.

50Now, I have shown you where God set them in the church, you show me where he ever took them out?

51In fact that is what brother Branham said himself. Witnesses 56-1004 P:49 Now, the Bible said that God set in the church apostles, prophets, teachers, evangelists and pastors. He never did say where He set out of the church apostles and prophets. They say, "Oh, He has still got teachers, and evangelists and pastors." But what about prophets and so forth. It's still just the same. God doesn't change.

52Anyway, in getting back to Romans, Paul said, 16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: 17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

53So we see there is a Word Seed for every season, and we just so happen to be in the season where Ephesians 1:3-4 is to manifest, and where Romans 8:11 and Romans 8:15 and Romans 8:19 and Romans 8:29 are to manifest before the resurrection takes place. In fact go home and read prayerfully Romans chapter 8 and you will see the Seed for the season in which we are now living.

54#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.

55#3) When this Seed manifests who it is, this manifestation of the Seed vindicates that this Seed was indeed for this Season.

56#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.

57#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.

58This morning we will look at Number 2) God has a Word for each season that he sends like His rain (Doctrine) to produce the fruit for the season.

59Way of a true prophet 63-0119 P:17 And when this prophecy come forth, it seemed like that it would not--it would be the last thing that could ever happen. According to what this prophet said to them, it'd be the last thing that could happen to them, from the way he cursed that generation. But yet within fifty years, the kingdom was completely wiped off the earth. God speaks His Word. And God's Word is like a Seed. And when It's sowed... When that prophet coming with the Word of the Lord, and spoke these words, they had to come to pass, if they were God's Words. When the Word of the Lord is anointed, and It is the Word of the Lord, It's bound to take Its place in Its season. We can see it after thousands of years taking Its place today. It must do it, because It's the Word of the Lord, and It cannot perish.

60Trying to do God a service 65-0718M P:20 Now, we find that God had a way of doing things, but David, just being blessed of God like he had to become king, he just thought that he would just do something for God anyhow. And he never went about it in the right way. We notice, God reveals His Word in His own predestinated season. Now, how could Martin Luther have knowed about the Message today? How could the Presbyterians... How could Martin--or the Catholic church know Martin Luther's message? How could John Wesley have knowed Luther's message? How could Wesley have knowed the Pentecostal message? Or how could the Pentecostals know this Message? See? He reveals It in His seasons, because It is a Seed; and as It grows and matures He reveals Himself.

61Church Age Book Chapter 4 - The Smyrnaean Church Age P:130 These elect were not only the eternal thoughts of God which were to be expressed in flesh in their due season, but these same elect are called by another name. Romans 4:16. "Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all." Romans 9:7-13, "Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, in Isaac shall thy seed be called. That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed. For this is the word of promise, At this time will I come, and Sarah shall have a son. And not only this; but when Rebekah had also conceived by one, even by our father Isaac; (For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of Him That calleth;) It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger. As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated." Galatians 3:16, "Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ." Galatians 3:29, "And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed and heirs according to the promise." According to Romans 4:16 we find that God has given a Sure Promise to ALL of Abraham's seed, and Paul puts himself and all believers under that designation because he says "Abraham who is the father of us ALL." Then he goes on to not only narrow down his definition, but rather to finalize it for in Galatians 3 he identified the SEED (singular) with Jesus, and counted "the seed children" as children of promise, and promise as having to do with "election", or "the choosing of God". And that is exactly what we have been saying. These who are of the Royal Seed are the elect of God; are the predestinated, fore-known of God, and were in the mind of God and His thoughts. In very plain language the True Bride of Christ was in the mind of God eternally, though not expressed until each came forth in the designated, decreed season. As each member came forth it became EXPRESSED and took its place in the body. Thus this bride is the literal SPOKEN WORD SEED BRIDE. And though she is feminine in designation she is also called the "body of Christ". It is very apparent that she ought to be called that for she was predestinated in Him, came from the same source, was eternal with Him, and is now manifesting God in a many membered body whereas once God was manifested in ONE MEMBER, even our Lord Jesus Christ.

62Psalm 119:25 My soul cleaveth unto the dust: quicken thou me according to thy word. 37 Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken thou me in thy way. 40 Behold, I have longed after thy precepts: quicken me in thy right-wise-ness.:50 This is my comfort in my affliction: for Thy Word hath quickened me.: 88 Quicken me after thy lovingkindness; so shall I keep the testimony of thy mouth.:93 I will never forget thy precepts: for with them thou hast quickened me.:107 I am afflicted very much: quicken me, O Lord, according unto thy word.:149 Hear my voice according unto thy lovingkindness: O Lord, quicken me according to thy judgment.:154 Plead my cause, and deliver me: quicken me according to thy word.:156 Great are thy tender mercies, O LORD: quicken me according to thy judgments.:159 Consider how I love thy precepts: quicken me, O LORD, according to thy lovingkindness.

63And we ask the question, Why?


He says here, "so that we might walk in His word, and come into manifestation of who we really are. Son's and daughters of God Himself."

64The Gene Seed of God will come to fruition and God's Word will not be sown and then come up empty in His predestinated Gene Seed because He is Here to bring all His Word to pass.

65Phillipians 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: and how does He perform it?

66Unrecognized Presence 6-18-64 "working for this One purpose: for you to recognize the Presence of Jesus Christ, See? If He is Present, then, everything is settled. He made the Word, He's here to confirm it." And then He said, "If we could realize that He is Appearing to us in these meetings for one purpose and that's to release our desires that we have in Him back to us. But we've got to recognize His Presence."

67Now, what if you know nothing of His presence? Then what? Then the promise is not for you? Oh, my but that is the truth, because that is what God's vindicated prophet taught us. You think God sent a teacher to teach us these things, and then people spit them right back in his face and call it fanaticism, and go their way. You think they will receive the promise of a change of the body if they are unwilling to die to self and reject the teaching ministry of the Holy Spirit in this hour?

68There are more than 2 million people claiming to believe God sent a Prophet in this hour but what good does that do you if you reject his message and what he came to do?

69Brother Branham said, From that time 62-0713 P:102 How many knows there's a difference between the appearing of Christ and the coming of Christ? It's two different words. Now's the appearing, the coming will soon be. He's appearing in the midst of us, doing the works that He once did, in His church. Now, you're a part of that church, and by grace you believe. I am a member of that church. Now, I'm not a preacher. You know I'm not. I have not the education to do it. Sometimes I feel reluctant standing here by men of God, who's called to that office. There are apostles, prophets, teachers, pastors, and evangelists. Not all are apostles, not all are prophets, not all are teachers, not all evangelists. I'm standing here...But my ministry is a different ministry from a pastor or teacher. I'm not. And if I say things wrong, brethren, forgive me. I don't mean it. But this is my ministry (See?) to declare Him, that He's here.

70Now, notice he tells us two things here, he says this is my ministry, to declare him, that is Godhead, that is to declare God, and secondly to declare that God is here.

71And from his sermon, Way to have fellowship 55-1009 P:62 But my ministry is this: it just declares that God is here.

72And to reject His ministry is to reject the Revelation of Jesus Christ and to reject The very presence of God. Notice brother Branham taught us what season we are in. We are in the time of the appearing of Christ which is before the coming of the son of God, which we call the second coming. So we ought to know the promises then for the time of the appearing.

73And we see in the former rain there is a teaching rain where the prophet will come and sow the seeds from genesis to Revelation.

74Church Age Book Chapter 5 - The Pergamean Church Age P:53 Now I want you to be very careful here and see this. God has promised that at the end time Malachi 4 is going to be fulfilled. It has to be for it is the Spirit-quickened Word of God spoken by the prophet Malachi. Jesus referred to it. It is just before Christ comes the second time. By the time Jesus comes all Scripture must be fulfilled. The Gentile dispensation will be in its last church age when that messenger of Malachi comes. He will be right with the Word. He will take the whole Bible from Genesis to Revelation. He will start at the serpent's seed and carry on to the messenger in the latter rain. But he will be rejected by the denominations.

75End time evangelism 62-0603 P:105 But what did the prophet saw that, he said, "But I will restore that tree, saith the Lord." She started back in the Reformation. What did she do? Organized. God pruned her like in St. John 14, cut all the organization off of it. And she come back to Wesley, she organized: pruned her off."I will restore." She's still coming. Now, what does it do? In the evening time there will be not an organization. There will be a--a top. Where does the fruit ripen at first? In the top. Why? The sun hits it. And in the evening time the seeds are planted now for a evening-time Bride tree, when the Tree of Life returns back to the Bride tree. You see? And the evening Lights has come out now to water and ripen that fruit that's been on the tree that's been planted. The seeds are sowed. See? The evening time. So the evening-time evangelism will be the mark of Malachi 4, to restore the faith of the people back to the faith of the fathers. Yes, sir. Back to the building stones. Amen.

76Church Age Book Chapter 5 - The Pergamean Church Age P:40 "Here is what I am trying to say to you. The law of reproduction is that each specie brings forth after its own kind, even according to Genesis 1:11, "And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, and 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." Whatever life was in the seed came forth into a plant and thence into fruit. The very same law applies to the church today. Whatever seed started the church will come forth and be like the original seed because it is the same seed. In these last days the true Bride Church (Christ's seed) will come to the Headstone, and she will be the super church, a super race, as she nears Him. They in the bride will be so much like Him that they will even be in His very image. This is in order to be united with Him. They will be one. They will be the very manifestation of the Word of the living God. Denominations cannot produce this (wrong seed). They will produce their creeds and their dogmas, mixed with the Word.

77Now, look, this is exactly what Paul taught in Romans 8 because it speaks of conforming to the image of the son of God and it speaks of coming into manifestation as sons of God.

781 Corinthians 1: 4 - 10 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ; That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge; Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you: So that ye come behind in no gift; (spiritual endowment) waiting for the Unveiling of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall also confirm (establish you, vindicate) you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but [that] ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

79Notice He will confirm you or vindicate you to be word Seed by fertilizing the predestinated gene seed. This thought on seed is the best and simplest explanation of predestination that I know, because a seed has everything about it already predetermined in it. It's growth rate, it's response to the light, it's full manifestation of it's attributes and characteristics are already in it by predestination.

80Deuteronomy 11: 14 That I will give you the rain of your land in his due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil.

81End time sign seed 62-0319 P:63 Now, we said in the last days Joel told us (the other part of the Scriptures. Listen close now.) that there would be a former and latter rain in the same season. How many Christians know that? Say, "Amen." Sure. What. Now, the other day, to my surprise, when I looked... Former and latter rain would come in the same season. Now, the word "former" in the Hebrew word (get your Hebrew lexicon and find out), the Hebrew word for "former" means "moureh." "Moureh" means "teaching." There will come a teaching rain. What is it? Putting the seeds into the earth. What's had. What's gone on? Well, we find out that there's been a teaching rain going on. The Baptist people, "A million more in '44," was their goal, members of the church. Billy Graham's great revivals, our great evangelist, look what he done. Look at Oral Roberts and the Pentecostals. There's been a teaching rain gone forth. There's been a national teaching rain, communism sowed amongst the people, every nation. There's been a Roman revival. Do you know what happens? If they give the western part, or the eastern part of Berlin back, that puts communism just, or I mean the Roman empire, just exactly in the old circle it was in the time of Jesus. Certainly it does, perfectly.

82Joel 2:23–29 Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.

83Brother Branham said that the former rain which we know is the teaching rain was to the Jews, and then he tells us that at the end-time we are to receive both the former and latter rain together.

84Now, if we read Joel 2:23 from the Amplified Bible, we read it as thus... 23 Be glad then, you children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord, your God; for He gives you (you children of Zion) the former or early rain in just measure and in righteousness, (which is right-wise-ness) and He causes to come down for you the rain, the former rain and the latter rain, as before.

85and then as we read to the end of the chapter we see the Seed in fulfillment right up to the very end. 24 And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the fats shall overflow with wine and oil. 25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you. (Now, he can't restore if he is not here to restore. So the seed is for a season, and the light, His Presence is here to bring the seed to full maturity) 26 And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed. 27 And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed. (Notice you will know I am in your midst and you will know that I am the Lord your God. You will understand presence and Godhead.) 28 And it shall come to pass afterward,(when is afterward? Well the first rain is the teaching rain, the sowing rain, but the afterwards rain or latter rain is the seed coming to maturity) that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: 29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. Again, here we see the season and it’s fulfillment.

86Hosea 6:1-3 Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up. 2 After two days (two thousand years for a day to the Lord is a thousand years to man) After two days will he revive us: in the third day (we are now in the 21st century since Christ came, so we are now in the 3rd day) in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight. 3 Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.

87And we have already seen that the rain is the doctrine, and we know that it is the doctrine of Christ so therefore, Christ is the doctrine.

88James 5:7-9 Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming (Parousia) of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. 8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming (Parousia) of the Lord draweth nigh. 9 Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.

89Let us pray...
