#4 Seed for Every Season no 3 Manifestation of the Seed is Vindication the seed is for the season

Rising of the Son

October 1st, 2016

1We have been speaking on the topic that there is a Seed for every season, and last Sunday we showed how that God has a Seed which is quickened by A Word That God has ordained for each season, to produce the fruit for the season. The Word is the Light of the world, so it is this light that quickens the life that is in that predestined seed, and thus brings the seed into manifestation of the Life that is in the seed.

2Tonight we will examine point no. 3 which concerns when the seed for the season manifests and show that this manifestation of the Seed actually vindicates that this Seed was indeed for this Season.

3What I am trying to say is that there are people who have hung around the Message for 30 to 40 years and yet there has never been any quickening of life in them. They can talk about the Message, and even know many terms identified concerning the Message, yet they have never gotten beyond just being good church going people. But God's Seed, His royal Seed possess the Life of God in them, and when the Light of the Word strikes that seed, it begins to manifest just what Life it has within it. And therefore the very God-Life that manifests Itself in the Seed does so because the Light has quickened it to Life. And that manifestation of the Life is a vindication that the seed was indeed ordained to be quickened by the Light.

4For Bible confirmation of this thought we can read in John 3:21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

5So this tells us that the Seed of God will come to the Light in order to manifest Itself that it is indeed God Seed.

6And we find in Ephesians 5:13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light. Therefore we see that nothing can manifest what Life is in it, unless it has light, for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.

7Again we see that the Life is brought to manifestation through the light of the Gospel as we see in 2 Timothy 1:10 But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:

8And if there is no God-Life in the seed, then the Light of the glorious Gospel will also manifest there is no God-Life. John 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
Therefore in order to avoid manifesting what they really are inside, they will avoid coming to the light.

9From his sermon, The Rising of the sun 65-0418M P:20 we have already read where brother Branham said, "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.

10So we are looking at the fact that God has a predestined a Seed in the earth for every season, and it takes the Light of the hour to bring to life those predestined seeds, for only Light can bring Life.

11Brother Branham said in his sermon, Man that can turn on light 63-1229M P:36 "So life is only by the Word of God made manifest. Life comes only by the Word of God made manifest. As long as it is just in the Book like this, it still can be questioned; but when it's made manifest, then you see the product of what It spoke of being manifested; (In other words when the Word that is in this Bible becomes manifested, then it becomes a reality, for it comes to life. And brother Branham goes on to explain,) then that is Light on the Word. See? That's what brings... The Word said so, and then when it comes to pass, that is Life in Light, Light bringing Life. Light brings life. Plant the wheat out here, You put it in a basement, cover it all over, and it'll never bring forth anything, because it can't; there's no light there. But as soon as light strikes it, then it'll bring forth life if it's a germitized seed. That's the same thing it is in the Word. See, the Word is God, and when the Light strikes It, it brings the Word to life again. Every age has always been that.

12Now, that brings us back to our thought for today, the manifestation of the Seed actually vindicates that this Seed was indeed for this Season

13Thirsting 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.

14In Ephesians 4: 8-12 God uses The five offices He has placed in the church to produce a ripened crop, or seed. A matured seed. But watch how the Apostle Paul speaks of others who come along but they will not come to the Light, they will avoid it at all costs.

15Ephesians 4:17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, 18 Having the understanding darkened, (notice this darkening is an absence of Light, and thus turning away from the Light they become alienated from the Life of God.) "being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: (Blind people do not walk in light, darkness is all they see, that is what Paul is telling us about these people, darkness is all they are capable of seeing.) 19 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.

16Turn on the light 64-0125 P:13 Nothing can live, natural or spiritual, without His Light, and His Word is Light and Life. But when He sends His Light and makes It known to the people, and then It is rejected, then what about that? That's what we want to talk about this morning is: rejecting this Light, by them It's sent to, rejected just like it was then. "Behold My servant, in Whom I have delighted in." He's a Light to the Gentiles. He's a Light to the world. He was the Light of the world, but He was rejected. That's the sad part. And it meets that condition every time that God manifests His Light, the world itself rejects that Light. Why? It's written right in the Bible. Each age, God has 'lotted so much of His Word for each age, and (Notice what brother Branham says next, He says...) He always sends somebody to manifest that Word.

17And the manifestation of that word is the light upon the word.

18Man that can turn on light 63-1229M P:38 And spiritual Life, Eternal Life, can only come by God's spoken Word of Life. Life was the S-o-n this time. In Him is Light, and in Him is no darkness; and He is God's spoken Light (Is that right?), God's spoken Word; for In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And It's forever God. See? And it takes the Light of God to strike the Word to make It live. Here's what He spoke, now let the Light shine (Amen.); let the Light shine. And the Light will bring every Word to Its right position in its season. Amen. No. You see, when it comes time, sometimes that little grain lays in the earth dormant all through the winter, like seed of winter wheat, sowed in the ground. But when that sun gets just right, oh, it's got to live. See? And it can't live without the sun. And God's made promises for every age and every day, and when the Light gets right and shines upon that, it'll produce just exactly what the Word said; because He is the Light and the Life.

19In first John 1 we read that God is light, and we find out that a lack of manifested Life is actually a representation of darkness.

201 John 1:1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; 2 (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) 3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. 4 And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full. 5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, (walking in darkness is bearing no fruit, no life. So to say we believe the message and not live it shows we do not believe it. And John says to do so) we lie, and do not the truth: 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. 8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

Great servant Moses 55-0122 P:7 Moses knowing that, as a scholar, "I guess I'll just go out and set the thing in order," he said. So he was forty years old, so he thought, "I'm getting old enough to do it." So he took the thing over in his own hand and failed. And every time that we take the matter in our hands, we're going to fail. You just go as the Lord leads. And what the Lord says do, then you do that, and you'll never fail. You can't fail, because you're following the leading of the Lord. If Moses would've only waited just a little while, and let things get ripe, and let the thing get... and the season. You can't plant corn in now, and go out and gather it in an hour. You've got to let it lay there, and the seed die, and rot away, and new life come up in spring in the corn. That's the way we do now. We're putting the seed in the hearts of the people, that when this great time of reaping comes, (see what I mean?) it'll be materialized, and be a great thing happen.

21Now, listen to what brother Branham says here in paragraph 89 through 91 from his sermon, Spoken word original seed 62-0318M P:89 The works that Jesus did, (Now, we know he is referencing John 14:12 here, because he says,) The works that Jesus did, if a man has the Seed of God in him with the Spirit of God watering that Seed, the same works that was manifested in Jesus, Him being the original Seed of God, His death brings you back to the original Seed of God, and if the same Spirit that was within Him is in you, then the same works will be manifested. You don't believe that? All right, let's turn over to Saint John 14:12.You say, "I'm a believer, Brother Branham. I sure am a believer." All right, I'm going to see if Jesus would call you one, see if the Word of God calls you one...Verily, verily,... (absolutely, absolutely)... I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go to the Father. 90 What is it? Same seed. Can't keep... How can you plant wheat here and wheat here and say, "I'm going to get cucumbers here and wheat here?" You can't do it. The only way you're going to get cucumbers is plant cucumbers. If you hybreed it, then it won't be a cucumber. It'll be a hypocrite. Is that right? It'll be a hypocrite, friends. You've got to say it. It isn't neither one. Isn't cucumber or what you bred it with. It's a crossbreed, and it is a bad product, and it's dead in itself, and it can't breed itself back no more. It's dead right there, back, won't go no farther. That finishes it; that's all. But if you want a cucumber, start with a cucumber. If you want a church, start with the Word of God. If you want a Life of God, start with the Word of God. Accept the Word of God in Its fullness, every measure of It. And then that's, And if that is the fullness of God in you, then the rain that's falling will produce exactly what's in your garden. See? Then now, where's your Latter Rain coming up at? You see where that's going after while, don't you? Going over with them wild gourds that Elijah got and thought they were gourds or them school of prophets up there, that denomination they had: gathered some wild gourds and thought they were peas. Oh, well.

22P:91 Then the works will be manifested in Him are the same, for it is the same Seed Word of God. God's Son was His example Seed. And what His Life was when the Spirit poured upon Him after His baptism and the Holy Ghost come upon Him, the very Life that He produced will, that same watering Spirit of the Holy Ghost will bring forth the same kind of a Life, doing the same thing that He did; if it's the same Seed. Son of God Seed will bring forth a Son of God Seed.

23So you see, the Life is in the Seed, and if the same Rain, same Holy Spirit waters that seed Life, no matter if that life was hidden in the body of the first born Son of God or the last born son of God, or in any other son of God in between, it will have to produce the same Life, the same thoughts, the same words, the same actions and the same works. And when it produces the very same life, then that vindicates that the seed was indeed predestined for that season. That vindicates Son of God seed because Son of God life is manifested from that seed.

24Turn 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.

25Proverbs 15:23 A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth: and a word spoken in due season, how good is it!

26We have seen His star 63-1216 P:18 Did you notice, it had to be just at this time when this murderous king, Herod, nothing but a murderer, killed all those little children, that it might be fulfilled which was spoke of the Lord by the prophet, saying, "In Rama, Rachel reaping--weeping for her children, and they were not." See, there had to be a murderous king to fulfill that prophecy that was spoke many hundred years beforehand. But when God speaks a Word by His prophet, It has to come to pass if It's God's Word. No matter how long It lingers, It'll still come to pass because It's a Seed. Jesus said that the Word of God is a Seed that a Sower sowed. So It must bear Its fruit in Its seasons. And now, this murderous king had to be at that time to kill those children.

27Church Age Book Chapter 8 - The Philadelphian Church Age P:48 In order to understand the wealth of meaning involved in "behold I set before you an open door, and no man can shut it," we must now recall what has been said about each age running over into another age. There is an overlapping, a melting or fading into, rather than an abrupt end and a clear cut start. This age particularly flows into the next age. And not only does this age overflow into the last age, but the last age is in many respects simply a carrying on of the sixth age. The seventh age (a very short age) gathers up into itself for one quick work, all the evil of every age, and yet all the reality of Pentecost. Once the Philadelphian Age has about run its course, the Laodicean Age quickly comes in, bringing both the tares and the wheat to harvest, "First bind the tares to burn them; but gather the wheat into my barn." Matthew 13:30. Remember, please, that the Sardisean Age started the reformation that must still go on until the grain that was planted at Pentecost goes through the full cycle of planting, watering, nourishing, etc., until it comes right back to original seed. While this is going on, the tares that were sown will have to go through their cycle and be harvested also. That is exactly what we see happening. If you can just think of the seasons, you can get a very good picture of this. The plant that you see growing in full strength in summer suddenly appears to be going to seed. You can't tell exactly when summer became autumn, it just faded into it. That is how the ages are, and especially these last two.

28Psalm 1:1 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. 2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. 3 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. 4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. 5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. 6 For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

29Christ is the mystery 63-0728 P:197 So what did her Husbandman do? Come by and pruned it. See? It brought forth denominational fruit (lemons on an orange tree), so He pruned it off (See?), brought it forth, kept up... But where is the heart of the tree? Right in the middle. And He's pruned them all down, till right in the top... He's got a Seed down here in the root, like a tree that's planted by the rivers of water (he that takes God's laws and love in his heart)--and he shall be like a tree (Psalms 1) planted by the rivers of water; his leaves shall not wither; in his season he'll bear his fruit. And here it is right... And where does the fruit ripen at quickly? in top of the tree. Why? The light's on it. Amen. That's right. And right in the top of the tree in this last days He's bringing forth a Bride Tree.

30Revelation 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.

31End time sign seed 62-0319 P:48 ...then the prophet got in the Spirit and cried out, "I know my Redeemer liveth. And in the last days He will stand upon the earth. Though after the skin worms has destroyed this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God." He seen that perfect One coming. What happened? Job being a prophet, the secrets of God is known to the prophets. He spoke the word. And when he spoke the Word that God showed him, it become material, for it was a spoken Word. And in its season it happened just exactly that way. Christ was born, the Redeemer One could stand between the living and the dead and bridge the way, and brought the resurrection. Exactly. Why? It was the Word of God. Now, He spoke the Word, and the Word was a Seed, and it matured in its season. Every seed of God correctly placed will mature.

32God who is rich in mercy 65-0119 P:43 Look what He did, How now we can see how He promised each age a certain thing to happen. And we find out that it happened just exactly like it, that He said that He would do, because He's rich in His mercy to always have mercy to fulfill every Word that He has promised. He has to do it, and always, in order to stay God. Always He does this: His Word always comes to pass in Its season, His seed that He has sowed into the earth. What did He do? He put it here in the Word, and that's a Seed. And every time the age comes along, that seed ripens up, and then a reformation comes forth. And He promised it, and it does that. Now, we did not deserve these things. We did not deserve these blessings of God, because we had went out after the things of the world, went in the error of Cain. Cain, building a nice altar and a nice church, and putting flowers upon it, and thought that's exactly what it was; it was a bunch of apples, or pears, or pomegranates, or whatever it was that his father and mother had eat in the garden of Eden that run them out. And so he offered that back to God, and God rejected it.

33Christ 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.

34Things 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.

35Trying to do God a service - 65-0718M 20 He reveals It in His seasons, because It is a Seed; and as It grows and Matures He reveals Himself. In other words, if it is a son of God seed, then as it grows and matures you cannot help but to see Christ in that individual. Now, it takes a very smart and well experienced farmer to look at a seed and tell one seed from another, but when it manifests itself, even a child can tell them apart.

36My granddaughter Ella can look at a crop of beans and she says, "Beans grandpa" and so I will point to the other side of the road and say what is that? And she will say, "that is corn grandpa. But when it is in seed form, it takes a special knowledge to know what seed it is and therefore what it will produce. But we have a promise from God that we are to produce Christ? We are to be conformed to the image of the first born son, because he is the Spoken Word Seed, and we are spoken Word seed and must manifest what Life was in the Seed that was Spoken. And that is why Jesus Called Him Father and we call Him Father. Because he is the same source of Seed Life.

37Seed 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.

38Psalm 1:1-6 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. The ungodly [are] not so: but [are] like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

39We have look to look at Noah, He received a Word for his day and was told what to do and he did it, and he manifested that word for his day by what he did.

40And the same with Moses, God had a Word for His day, and Moses received that Word, and reflected that Word by the actions he took, and he became the manifestation of that Word for his day that he lived.

41And what about the Apostle Paul? I want you to think about it for a moment. Paul didn't walk with Jesus and fish with Jesus, yet Paul met Jesus on the road to Damascus, and Paul ended up knowing Jesus better than all the rest of the apostles. Why? because they got lost in the vessel, but Paul saw Him without the vessel. And Paul became the manifestation of the Word of Life in the elect body of Christ.

42Jesus never taught the disciples what Paul taught. When he said, "unless you eat my flesh and drink my blood you have no life in you." The Disciples had no clue what Jesus was talking about, but because Paul did not meet the vessel, he did not become focused on the vessel like the others did, he focused rather on the God who used the vessel.

43From Why against organized religion 62-1111E P:79 Borned again from above, then we are active, active in things from above, for His Life is in us, which is His Word a-vindicating the Word Itself. The Spirit that's in you is the Word made flesh in you. The Spirit minds the Word, and is active in vindicating the Word. Now, the Spirit is not active in any denomination. It's not interested in making organization, because the Spirit Itself is contrary to the organization. The organization are looking for worldly things, the mind of the world, and they make big temples and polished things, and great polished organizations, and polished preachers, and so forth like that, and the best class in the city. Where the Spirit is trying to find honest hearts where the Spirit is anxious to manifest and prove that every Word of God is Truth. How can the Spirit work in an organization when it's denying, taking creeds instead of the Word? Can't do it. So, you see, it's dead. God don't go to them kind of places to find His, a group of men to work for Him, 'cause they're already dead. They're unbelievers in the Word or they wouldn't be in there. See? Now, we are active in the things from above. Now, the Spirit minds the Word. Now, that's right, 'cause the Spirit gives the Word Life. See? "The letter killeth, but the Spirit giveth Life."

44Sirs we would see Jesus 64-0304 P:28 That's what those Greeks wanted to know, what the hour was and what that Messiah should be. The portion of Scripture that was made known for that day, if that Messiah fulfilled that, that's the evidence. The a-vindicated Word of the hour is the evidence; not that He had to have fruits of the Spirit, He had to be a lawyer in the courts of justice, for His, or one of the Pharisees or Sadducee organizations. He was the manifestation of God's promised Word of that hour. You want to see what the fruit of the Spirit is? Watch what the Bible promises for a certain hour, then watch for that to be vindicated. That is the evidence. Jesus said, "Search the Scriptures, for in Them you think you have Eternal Life; They are They that testify of Me. That's what proves Who I am."

45Notice, William Branham saw Malachi 4 and Revelations 10:7 and Luke 17:30 and he stepped into those Scriptures and became the manifestation of that Word for the hour.

46But we have Scriptures that are supposed to reflect a Word for the hour also.

47Ephesians 1:5 Having predestined us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,

48Romans 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.

49Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. 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. 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.

50Romans 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.

51Now, the thing of it is, those are promises from God. They are for a certain season, and when you hear those promises, and recgnize them as yours, and step into them, then when you manifest those promises, you are becoming the manifested Word for your hour.

52Titus 3:4 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared.

53Here we are told that the very fact that God sent Jesus to epiphanaea, that this act of manifested Life opened up a way for us to be redeemed from our corruptible nature. I hope you see how important the epiphanaea of Christ is to us.

54Luke 1:79 To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.

55This is spoken in prophecy concerning John the Baptist. Notice what the Light does. It is to give knowledge of salvation, to bring us out from the shadow of death into Light and Life.

56And remember, brother Branham said in, A Man that can Turn on the Light pp. 96 "Life can only come by Light" and just before this he said, pp. 95 "There's nothing can give you Life but the spoken Word of God."

57Again in 1 John 1:3 "That which we have seen and heard, declare we unto you, that you may have fellowship with us." John tells us that the only way we can have true fellowship is to receive the declaration of God's Presence and the manifested Life (through vindication) which has come down into our midst. God's very personal Presence among His people. I believe the reason people miss this, has to do with expectations. Why did the people miss Messiah at His first coming? They didn't expect Him to come the way He did. And today, not many people will argue and say God is not here, but when you tell them He is here in a different way than He has been through the Church ages, they will habitually fall back to their past theology that says, "He's always been here." But, as we see in 1 John 1:1-3, The Fountain of Life Himself has once again returned to earth in the same way He was Present in the first Church Age and He has come to bring out the Life that was planted in our seed before the foundations of the world and bring that Word Life Seed into Manifestation.

58Let us bow our heads in prayer.
