6We've been talking about the fact that God has a Seed for every season, and that there is a rain for every seed in every season, and that rain is the doctrine of the season, the word and promises for that season.
7We have shown that the manifestation of the seed in its season is the vindication that the seed was indeed for the season, and this morning i would like to take this one step further by showing that the seed being quickened and manifested is the evidence that the Seed is the Seed of God. In fact I would like to break down many of the attributes and characteristics of God Life in the Seed of God, and show how it is manifested, in fact has to manifest when the light for the season creates the correct atmosphere for the quickening to take place.
8This morning I would like to take our thoughts concerning this manifestation of the Seed Life that comes forth because we have been quickened by the Word for the season. And I want to show the evidence of that seed life in us, and we will do so by running it from Genesis the Seed Chapter to Revelations which is the Book of Manifestation.
9From his sermon, Queen of Sheba 61-0219 P:34 brother Branham said, "You can't hide it. You can't hide genuine life. You take natural life, botany life. Let that sun come warm. Now, like in my country, the little seeds drops off, out of these flowers; they die. They have a funeral procession; the--the skies cry down great big October tears and buries them in the ground. The seed bursts; the pulp runs out. That isn't the end of that flower. Just let the sun, the s-u-n, who has control of all the life of botany, and then when it begins to shine upon the ground and get it in a certain temperature; no other temperature will do it. Nothing else will put that color in there but the sun. So you let it get in the right temperature, the right atmosphere, and that little germ of life hid somewhere in the dirt, will come forth again. Did you ever lay concrete walk and notice in the spring of the year, where is your thickest of the grass? Right around the edge of the walk. What is it? It's that seed that was buried under that walk. And when the temperature gets right, the season gets right, you can't hide life. It'll work its way right through and come stick its little head up and praise God. Because it's life. You can't hide it when the s-u-n is a shining. Just as sure as the s-u-n brings botany life, the S-o-n brings Eternal Life. And you can't hide it. It'll shine forth. There's something has to happen. Jesus said, "If they hold their peace the stones will immediately cry out." Something takes place. When God, the eternal God, begins to shine His Spirit down, those that are ordained to life will recognize it. They'll come and walk in the Light, live in the Light.
10Notice that he said you cannot hide life, it has to manifest if there is indeed God-Life in you. That is what John 14:12 is all about. That is what we read last night from the Spoken Word is the Original Seed when brother Branham said if the same Seed Life was in the Son of God is in you it will produce son of God. It's all about Seed Life. What seed life is in you? And the manifesting of that Life is the evidence that it is God Seed, eternal Life.
11God's only provided place of worship 65-1128M P:96 Now, the Lutherans wanted to get in one way, by joining the Lutheran church. The Methodists wanted to get in by shouting. The Pentecostals wanted to get in by speaking in tongues. That still ain't it. See? No, that's gifts, so forth. But I Corinthians 12 says, "By one Spirit..." Spirit of God, which is the Life-giver to the Word, the Seed, to vindicate that Seed for that season. See? Here's the Methodist age seed laying there; it taken the Holy Spirit to make that seed come to life and purify the church by sanctification; Luther didn't preach that, 'cause he didn't know it. The Pentecostals wanted to speak in tongues for the restoration of the gifts. Each one declares, "That's it. That's it." See?
12Now, the fact is that way too many people are looking for the promises of this hour or being conformed to the Image of the first born son, and being manifested as sons of God, and being adopted and placed as sons, way too many people are putting that off in their minds to the millennium, but those promises are for this season we are in right now.
131 John 3:1-3 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.
14Now, for the next few minutes I'm going to read to you quotes from brother Branham showing that we get always get what we expect, and Satan knows that, so he uses misdirection to get you to look for the promises of God way off in the future when those promises are here for us right now.
15And brother Branham taught us that is how the people always miss out on the promises of God. They are always looking forward or looking backward and that is how the people are always missing what God is doing now.
16Jehovah Jireh 57-0106 P:25 I've always said, "You don't know who you are." That man setting by you is a son of God. That woman setting by you is His daughter. And we are sons and daughters of God, setting together in heavenly places right now in Christ Jesus, Him working with us, confirming the Word with signs following. Not, we will be in the millennium; we won't need healing in the millennium. Now is when we need healing. Now is when God is Jehovah-jireh to provide anything that we've got need of, for we're Abraham's seed under the covenant, through the death, and burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Amen. That'll make a Baptist shout. That's right. Think of that. My, I really feel religious when I think of that: saved by the grace of God, not by my own will, but by His will. Not by my own desire, but He changed my desire. My mind was once away from God, was changed and brought to God. I could no more make myself do that, than a leopard could lick his spots off. No, sir. It taken God to do it. It taken God to bring you here tonight. It taken God to save you. And God is doing everything He can to show you His goodness to you. Oh, I hope you see it.
17Where I think Pentecost failed 55-1111 P:12 So if you could ever get real good fundamental faith amongst Pentecostal people, or fundamental doctrine with the Pentecostal people, and the... or vice versa, I'd like to see what the meeting would be. When the people realize that you are... not, you will be, you are, present tense, right now, sons and daughters of God. You're pushing it way off out to the millennium somewhere, all the blessings out in the millennium. Why, it's right now. We won't need Divine healing in the millennium. Now, is when we have it. We won't be sons of God, but now you're sons of God, and heirs, joint heirs with Jesus. And everything that Jesus died for at Calvary is your possession. Amen. Brother, Satan don't like that, because... if the people would only realize and just be willing to take God at His Word, you would, you'd just hard... Well, it's unlimited.
18Redemption by power 54-0329 P:62 When you cross over that separating line, you become fellow citizens of the Kingdom of God. Oh, my. How good is it? Why, you become a new creature (oh, my), changed from this what you are now. You are now the sons of God. Now, are we sitting together in heavenly places, not, we will be in the millennium. We are now, right now we're the sons of God. Right now we're sitting together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus, not just in the church; we're in Christ Jesus. The resurrected Lord Jesus is here. He's here in His power. He's here in His redemption power. He's here for the exodus. He's here to bring every church member into fellowship with Him. He's here to bring every sinner, no matter how low you are, He's here to bring the power of His resurrection into your life and make you a new creature.
19Witnesses 54-0303 P:25 Jesus Christ is in the building tonight to perform miracles, but he does it through His Church, His people. "They shall lay their hands on the sick, and they shall recover. In My Name they shall cast out evil spirits." Is that right? The commission's given to the Church. That's what's the matter with the Church today. It doesn't know its position. If you knowed positionally who you was and what you are tonight, there wouldn't be a feeble person in here in the next five minutes. That's right. The thing of it is, you're looking off into a millennium for something to happen, when it's already here. "Now we are the Sons of God." Not we will be, we are right now. When? This night. Right now, this minute we're seated together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus, now. Oh, if you'd only recognize that. And the supreme authority that Jesus Christ has given to every believer. Anything you have desire of, need of, only thing you have to do is ask and receive it. "Whatsoever things you desire, when you pray, believe you receive it, it'll be given unto you," St. Mark 11:24. And that's true. Whatsoever things you desire, when you pray, believe that you receive it. And you shall have it.
20Expectations and what love is 54-0228A P:41 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. 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.
21What think ye of Christ 53-1213M P:23 What are we going to need miracles in the millennium, when we're supernatural beings? See? How are we going to need those thing... Now, the Bible said, "Now are we the sons of God." Not... "Now" is present tense. "Now are we the sons." Not we will be, we are now. We are this morning; we are this very hour. "Now are we the sons of God, seated together, set together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus now."Right this very minute we're--we're seated together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Every man, by one spirit we're all baptized into one Body, become members of this Body by Holy Spirit baptism. And now, we're seated together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus, free from judgment. We can never go to the judgment. How can you be judged twice? God judged Jesus Christ, and He put our judgment upon Christ, and Christ paid our judgment at Calvary. If we're in Christ, we're secured in Christ. How do we get into Christ? "By one Spirit we're all baptized into one body." Is that right?
24From his sermon, Father the hour has come 56-1002A P:49 Brother BRanham said, "But the time had come for that Word to be fulfilled. When the season rolls around, don't you worry, the crop will be there. That's right. And brethren, if there ever was a time... For the next few minutes now, I want to talk to you to your heart. If there ever was a time, that the time has come for the Word to be fulfilled, it's now. This is the day. Seeds has been planted; it's time to take the hoe and get out here, and go to cutting out some of these weeds and things we got grown up, saw briers, and stink weeds, and everything else that's grown up amongst the people: doubters, disbelievers, lukewarm, everything else. It's time for us to get the hoe and chop it out. And there's nothing any better than a two-edged sword of God to cut it with.
25Let's read 2 Corinthians 3: 18 for this hour, the way God meant for it to be read. "Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.
27For the remainder of this message we will go through many of the attributes and characteristics of God Seed Life. And I want you to see that these are attributes and characteristics that are not somewhere out in the future but they are now. Now we are sons, not will be, we are now.
30Questions and answers COD 64-0823E P:25 That's the evidence of the Holy Ghost, when God reveals to you and you see it, THUS SAITH THE LORD and accept it. Not what you are, what you was, or nothing about it, it's what God has done for you now. There's the evidence. Jesus said... He give us the evidence of the Holy Ghost, John 14. He said, "I have many things to tell you. I haven't got time to do it, but when the Holy Ghost comes, He will tell you, bring to your memory the things that I told you about, and will also show you things that is to come." Don't you see? There's the evidence.
32Broken cisterns 64-0726E 37 Today I was talking with my good friend Dr. Lee Vayle, who's present now. And he's quite a theologian. And so we usually have some--have some pretty good discussions on the Scripture. Very smart, and he asked me one time what I thought about the initial evidence of the Holy Ghost, was it speaking in tongues? (It's been many years ago.) I said, "No, can't see that."He said, "Neither do I." said, "though I've been taught that." He said, "What would you think would be a evidence?" I said, "The most perfect evidence I can think of is love." And so we got to talking on that. And then I thought, "That sounded pretty good." So I just held that: If a man's got love. But one day the Lord in a vision straightened me out, and He said that the evidence of the Spirit was those who could receive the Word, neither love nor speaking in tongues, but it's receiving the Word. P:38 And then Dr. Vayle was saying to me that that is Scriptural. He said, "Because in John 14 Jesus said, 'When He, the Holy Ghost is come upon you, He will reveal these things to you that I've taught you, and will show you things to come.'" So there is the genuine evidence of the Holy Ghost. He's never told me anything wrong yet. That it is; the evidence of the Holy Ghost is he who can believe the Word, who can receive It. 'Cause Jesus never said, "When the Holy Ghost is come, you'll speak with tongues." He never said, "The Holy Ghost come you'd do any of those things," but He said, "He will take these things of Mine and show them to you, and will show you things that is to come." So there is the genuine evidence of the Holy Ghost according to Jesus Himself.
331 Corinthians 2:10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 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. 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. 15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. 16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
34This day this scripture 65-0219 P:40 The Holy Ghost is the Word of God in you that identifies Itself by accepting that Word. Outside of that it can't be the Holy Ghost. If it says it's the Holy Spirit and denies one word of that Bible, it cannot be the Holy Spirit. That's the evidence whether you believe it or not.
37Way to have fellowship 55-1009 P:16 I love the Word, don't you? And you know why you love the Word? You have the Holy Spirit in you. For the Bible said that man does not live by bread alone, but by every Word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. So the Holy Spirit feeds on the Word.
41Expectations 50-0810 P:25 I love the Word. The Holy Spirit feeds on the Word of God. Christians should always read the Bible, for the Holy Spirit feeds... Its food is the Word of God. "Man shall not live by bread alone (Amen. There it is.), but by every Word that proceeds out of the mouth of God." That's what the Christian lives on, the Word. And the Holy Spirit loves the Word, and He's here tonight to receive the Word. And It's in you. And as the Word comes forth, then the Holy Spirit takes the Word of God and reveals It. Simeon, he's an old man now. He believed. It was revealed by the Holy Spirit that he wasn't going to die until he'd seen the Lord's Christ.
45Hebrews Chapter 3 57-0901M P:3 You know the Bible said that would happen? (That's right.) And you Bible readers, I heard you holler "Amen," and you preachers back there. That's right. The love would be so far away in the last days, the only love there would be left would be between the elect of God's people. The father would be against mother, and mother against father, and the children against parents, and different ones against each other. And the only love would be left would just be that elect; just the elected. The word "elect," there, comes from the word "elected": God's elected people.
48Luke 6:35 But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil
51John 8:42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. 44 (You cannot possibly understand the things of God because you are of another Father. ) Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
52When their eyes were opened 64-0416 P:32 What was it? They knowed the Word as far as the letter was, but they didn't understand the Word when It was literally interpreted. That's what it is today. Every man's got his own interpretation, when God condemns the whole thing. God does His Own interpreting. If God said He'll do a thing, He does it. That's the interpretation thereof. God interprets His Own Word. There He was standing there, His Own Interpreter. Hallelujah. He's the same yesterday, today, and forever. He does His Own interpretation. He doesn't need any seminary or any ministers, me, you, or no one else to interpret Him. He promised it, and then He turns around and does it. That settles it. That interprets Itself.
54Key to the door 62-1007 P:68 Now, when He went away, He said, "It's expedient for Me that I go away. For, if I go not away, the Holy Ghost will not come." See? Then when He comes, He will reprove the world of sin, and teach righteousness, and show you things to come; that's visions. "He'll take the things that I've taught to you, and reveal them to you." The very Words that He's come... No man can understand the Word outside the baptism of the Holy Ghost. And when a man says he's got the baptism of the Holy Ghost, and disputes the Word being right, there's something wrong.
551 Corinthians 2:10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 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. 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.
56Abraham 55-0624 P:22 Listen, first you've got to be born again of the Spirit of God. If you're not, you'll never understand the Word of God. God has said so. God said, "I have hid this Bible from the wise and prudent, and will reveal it to they such as will believe." If you want to get anything from God, just be a baby. Open up the Bible. Fall in love with Jesus.
