1This evening we will continue with our study on the Trail of Adoption, but first I want to re-read a few things brother Branham said from The Spoken Word is the Original Seed, paragraph 87.

2In  paragraph 87 of  the spoken Word is the original Seed brother Branham said, See, the spoken Word... Then we are God's Word made manifest. That's how God wants His church: is to manifest Himself. How can He manifest Himself unless His Own Seed is in that person? How can you use your own thoughts and God manifest Himself through you? How can you take your own belief and say, "Well, my pastor teaches... My creed says that this... days of miracles..." How you going to do that and then be a manifested son of God? How you going to do it? The death of Jesus wasn't nothing to you. "Oh, I accept Him as my Saviour." You don't. You say you do, but you don't. Your works proves what you are. Jesus said the same thing. "If you think I am illegitimately born..."They said, "We're Abraham's son and need nobody to teach us." Said, "If you was Abraham's children, you'd know Me." See? Said, "Which one of you condemns Me of sin (unbelief)? Show Me one thing that God promised of Me that ain't fulfilled. Show Me one thing that the Father promised that I haven't fulfilled. (Sin is unbelief.) Let's see you produce it then." That de-horned them. See? Certainly. Said, "Who's accusing Me? Who can condemn Me with sin (unbelief)?" See? "If I don't believe, then why is the Father doing through Me like He's doing, every Word that He promised? Now, let Me see where you got it in yours."

3Now, I want to look at this paragraph in light of paragraph 91 where he says, 89 …if the same Spirit that was within Him is in you, then the same works will be manifested.  and then in paragraph 90 he said,

490What is it? Same seed. Now, let’s jump ahead a little where he said,  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 if that is the fullness of God in you, then the rain that's falling will produce exactly what's in your garden. See? And then in paragraph,  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.

5Now, looking at these thoughts all together what we see is that Brother Branham is speaking on this Subject “The Spoken Word is the original Seed” and the key here is original Seed, because that is where all the other seeds come forth from.

6Before Jesus died, he said, John 12: 24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.

7NIV 24 I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.

8Amplified 24 I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, Unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains [just one grain; it never becomes more but lives] by itself alone. But if it dies, it produces many others and yields a rich harvest.

9Weymouth 12:24 In most solemn truth I tell you that unless the grain of wheat fallsinto the ground and dies, it remains what it was,  a single grain; but that if it dies, it yields a rich harvest.

10What brother Branham is telling us here is that the Law of Life which was spoken by God way back in Genesis 1:11 tells us that every seed must bring forth after it’s kind, and what brother Branham is showing us here is that the original seed is the pattern seed or as he puts it the example seed.

11Now, the word example according to the English dictionary is: 1. One that is representative of a group as a whole: Now, that is not as good of a definition as the second one which says, 2. One serving as a pattern of a specific kind: Because that is Genesis 1:11 which says, every seed must bring forth after it’s kind. So you see the original seed is the pattern for each seed that comes forth after it.

12                                                                                           

13Therefore we are ordained to reflect the image of the original seed, and that original Seed was Christ.

14Ephesians 1:3Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:  4According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: 5Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,

15And Ephesians 1: 3 is Romans 8: 29…29For whom he did foreknow, (foreknow when? Before the foundations of the world, that’s when,…And so those that He knew before the foundations of the world, were those that were in Him, and as brother Branham said, if we did not have representation back then, we never will have it. So if we were in Him, we are those he foreknew, and 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.

16Now, that word conformed was translated from a Greek word summorphos which means jointly formed, i.e. (figuratively) similarly formed,  fashioned like unto, and  the word summorphos was derived of two words, “sun” a primary preposition denoting union; with or together or  process, or resemblance, or in addition to, and the word, Morphe which means to  shape or form. So you see it is not just a shaping but together the shape comes forth. In other words, it takes the original to shape the other, thus the original is the pattern. And you know a pattern is what is needed to make exact copies.

17So God wants children, sons and daughters that are exact copies of the original seed Son of God. and that is what brother Branham was saying in paragraph 90-91.

1890 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 if that is the fullness of God in you, then the rain that's falling will produce exactly what's in your garden. See?

1991 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. (An example seed is a pattern 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.

20And that could not be possible unless we have the life that was in the first born seed. For if we have the life, then we have the nature, for the two are one in the sense the nature and life reflect attributes or manifested characteristics of the life that is in the seed.

21You see, God is not coming for a people who think his Message is just a new creed or something. And he’s certainly not coming for a people who think the Message is “God sent a prophet”. He’s coming for son of God seeds who came off the original son of God seed.

22That is what the Doctrine of Christ is all about, and that is why we should not view it as a theology because it is life we are talking about.

23You argue about theology, but Life is not to be argued over, Life is to be lived, expressed, manifested in our vessels. The Doctrine of Christ is a reality of your position in the family of God.  The Doctrine of Christ, is to know Your Father and your eldest brother and to recognize your brothers and sisters in the family and to thus treat them as such.

24Ephesians 4:11 tells us the ministry of the five fold is top help the family to mature as sons and daughters of God, and it tells us that we can not do that unless we come to a knowledge of The Son of God, and an understanding of The Faith.

25Ephesians 4:11And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12For the perfecting of the saints, (perfecting, that isn’t without blemish, the blood of Jesus does that. No, God gave a five fold ministry to bring the church to maturity.) for the work of the ministry, for the edifying (that means the building up) of the body of Christ: 13Till we all come in The unity of The faith, (Not just Faith, but The Faith, and not just any unity will do, because when the tower of Babel was built God looked down and saw that man was one and he said this is not good, I will have to go down to confound their speech so they can not be one in this way, yet in 1 Corinthians 1, Paul tells us that we are given the mind of Christ that we might be one. Jesus said in St. John 17 that he gave us His Word, and His Glory that His Father had given him that we might be one even as He and the father were one.  Now, we know that word Glory as translated from the reek word Doxa which means the opinion, values and judgments. So you se he had received from the Father His Opinions, values and judgments, and that is how he and the Father were One because He was the expression of the Father’s Glory (the father’s opinions, value, and judgments. And in the same way we become one with the Father as well.)

26But in Ephesians 4 Paul tells us that the five fold ministry will bring us to The Unity of The Faith, and since there is but One Lord and One Faith, (Ephesians 4;5) and we know that Faith is a Revelation, then that One Faith has to be the Faith of that one Lord, which is Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today and forever. God Himself who is the God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ.) and of the knowledge of the Son of God, (Why knowledge of the Son of God? because if you do not know the Son of God you do not know what a mature son, an Adoptable son is, because he is the pattern for all sons.) unto a perfect man, (that word perfect does not mean without blemish, it means mature. The five fold ministry is for the perfecting of the church, the maturing of the church) unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ: (no longer will a part be ok, but this same Paul said in 1 Corinthians 13, When that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part will be done away. And at that time we shall see him as he really is and in seeing him as he really is we become what we really are. ) 

2714That 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; 15But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: (see there we go again, it’s all about coming to maturity, to harvest time.) 16From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.(and that is what the edifying will produce is unfeigned love, genuine holy Ghost love for the family of God.) 17This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, (that’s moral depravity) 18Having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: (Now, look, there are 4 things here you must not miss. Their understanding becomes darkened, shutting off the light of His glorious Gospel, His Glorious presence, and this alienates them from the Light which is life, and all because of the blindness of their hearts. They are blind and naked, and this is Laodicea.)

2819Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. 20But ye have not so learned Christ; 21If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: 22That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; 23And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; 24And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.  25Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another. 26Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: 27Neither give place to the devil. 28Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.  29Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.  30And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. 31Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: 32And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.

29Then to know it and understand it from your heart will bring with it the same Life that was in the first born son, and you will see your own life become a reflection of His Life. Why? Because God wants to live out your life for you, in your own set of circumstances.

30The trials and tests God gives to each of you are very unique to your own life circumstances, and God wants your vessel to reflect Himself through your circumstances.  And it matters not who you are. My circumstances are different with my wife’s circumstances and hers are different from our daughters. And each of my daughters have a set of circumstances that are unique to them, And God wants to live out their lives and show Himself the same yesterday, today and forever in each of our lives.

31No matter who you are, if you are a son or daughter of God, he wants to borrow your body, so just loan it to him, or give it to Him, Just surrender your self to Him that he might use your vessel to manifest His life through it. That is what Life is all about. It’s not seeing what you can do with this vessel, but allowing God Himself to use it, and to see what He will do with it.

32From the Future home 64-0802 P:76 brother Branham said, Now, many of you wonder how that discernment comes? I'm going to tell you. See, it's a word that I say, and it isn't my thinking, 'cause I don't know. I don't know of the thinking of it. How can I tell you who you are and where you come from, when I don't know you? How can I tell you what you done ten years ago, when I never seen you in my life? How can I tell you where you do and what you'll do ten years from now? How do I know the future? But it is Somebody Else's thought." Let the mind that was in Christ be in you. Let the mind that was in Christ be in you." See, then it isn't your thinking; it's His thinking through you, and you're not expressing your own words; you're expressing His Words.

33God's gifts always find place 63-1222 P:44 God works through human beings to redeem human beings. He can take you, work through you to redeem humanity, if you'll completely dedicate everything you are .If you're a young woman, dedicate your morals. You're a young man, dedicate your morals, dedicate your mind, dedicate your thinking, dedicate your heart, dedicate your soul, dedicate all you are and let Christ work through that. What a glorious thing.

34Who is this 59-1004M P:34 …a supernatural God cannot change His nature to fit people's nature. People has to change their nature to fit God's supernatural plan. And that's why people cry, "Who is this?" It's God in the midst of His people. They don't understand it. God will never come to your level; you'll have to come to His. God will not come to your requirement; you have to come to God's. And then when that requirement is met upon a promise that God made to redeem the people. If that requirement has met, your entire being changes; your thinking changes. Your habits change. Everything about you changes. Your desires change. Your living changes. Your habits change. You change. Everything about you changes, 'cause there's a new life in you.

35Can we see Jesus 58-0619E P:14 You have to have God on the inside before you can see Him on the outside. And there's many people that doesn't seem to understand what God is. But He has to come in, and look through your eyes, use your eyes, and your mind, your thinking, and your sight, your emotion, all has to be fully controlled by God.

36Door to the heart 58-0316E P:42 Say, "Now, you can come in, but don't you dare open that door. Don't you go to this one. But you can stand right here." Would you feel very welcome? That's the way with some of you church members. You just let Him come in. Oh, you want Him to be your Saviour, but He wants to be your Lord. Lord is rulership. He wants to be your Ruler, not just your Saviour only. You want Him as a Saviour, but what about being your Lord, that'll control you, control your emotions, control your thinking, control your every fiber of you, that you could say like the man years ago who let Him in, "For me to live is Christ and to die is gain." Let Him in, in that way to be Ruler and Lord over you.

37Door inside door 58-0209E P:31 You must let Him be the supreme Ruler. That is, He's over all. He's over your opinions. He's over everything that you have. He's over your emotions. He's over your ideas. He's controls every fiber of your thinking. Everything that you are you should turn it over to Him, if He's going to be your Saviour and your Lord.

38So no matter what Son of God we look at, every seed must come forth in the likeness of the original seed, and if we are Son of God seed then we will produce son of God results.

39Therefore we see the trail of Adoption, and the Life of sons who God used to manifest Himself to the world throughout the ages. We saw it in Moses, and in Joseph, and in David, and in Daniel, and in Isaiah, and in Jesus and Paul and Luther and Wesley, and William Branham, and will it be in you as well? God said he would have adopted sons, and he predestined us to the adoption of children unto himself. 

40So can you see your calling? Having you heard that call? Has He revealed to you your role in the family? Have you stepped into your role? Have you seen the rejection that must come to bring you into a further defining of your role?

41I hope that you can see that no matter who the son or daughter was, there is the same pattern that took place in each of their lives no matter what age they lived in and no matter what their life circumstance were.

42God called each of them, and they heard that calling, and perhaps for a time they did not understand that calling, but in due season, God revealed to them his plan for their lives, which was their role to perform for their hour, and  when they stepped out in faith and obedience to that call, in every case their brothers didn’t understand their role, and so they persecuted them and rejected them, because they misunderstood them, but needless to say, they endured because they knew who they were and they knew the role their Father had called for them in this vast family of brothers. And so they were mocked, made fun of, and their life was filled with a lonely trail that they had to bear by themselves, but once God their Father saw that they were obedient to the heavenly vision, he crowned their ministry, he crowned their son-ship, he crowned their role, by calling them up even higher. And once God crowned their ministry, their obedience as sons, he then took them off the scene, he called them home to rest.

43And we know that this predestination to the adoption of sons as spoken of here in Romans 8 and Ephesians 1, and Galatians 4 and Hebrews 1, 3, and 7 shows us that not only the pattern of behavior is predestined by the seed we receive, as brother Branham said, if Son of God seed is in us, we will produce in our bodies Son of God life for brother Branham said that Jesus was the “example seed” or the pattern seed.  But also the very path that leads us to the pattern for adoption is predestinated by God. The pattern is what we are to be conformed to, so the pattern is predestined in us, and so is the path or trail to the adoption.

44In a seed all its attributes and characteristics are already in it that it will ever need to become the fully mature plant ready for harvest. All it needs is the water and Light to bring it to maturity and ready for the harvest, and so is every son of God by the new birth and the process of adoption made ready for the great day of adoption of sons. The pattern is predestined in us, Ephesians 1;3 and the path to that day which is Romans 8.

45And since he was the original Seed and the law of reproduction says every seed must come forth after the life that is in the seed, then if Son of God Seed produced an obedient son in the original seed it will also produce obedient sons in the other son of God seeds that were in that seed to begin with and came froth from that original seed.

46Now, in looking at this trail of the Adoption or the process that we go through to the adoption of son, we found in Romans 8: 30 that there are 3 stages that we go through in this process.30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, (remember Ephesians 1) them he also called: (that’s the first part in our journey is the calling)  and then whom he called, he also justified: (which is the second stage of our journey. Then once we have received our call there comes justification which comes by Faith. Faith is a revelation, then once called, God reveals to us what our role is. You see first we must understand we are a son or daughter of God.  because you can not be adopted as a son if you are not a son, and you cannot fulfill your role in the family if you’re not in the family. So the call is first, the revelation of what that call is all about. Now, the revelation is where you get refinement in your role. The justification is the faith or revelation of What it takes to become what we are, the revelation which tells us what our calling is all about, what our position in the family is, and then ) whom he justified, them 3) he also glorified.

47And as I mentioned last weekend that is when the role you are playing out actually becomes the word for your season with skin on it. (That’s doxazo, which speaks of the opinion, values and judgment actually becoming expressed or materialized. In other words, you are called as a son to your role in the family, and through revelation of that role and faith in God’s calling, you step into your role, and become the expression of that part of God’s word for that season. You become that words manifested to this age. Then Paul says,) 31What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? 32He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

48Look, God has a Word for every season, and in our case he has a Word that said there would be sons predestined unto the adoption of sons. So if God has a Word for this season that speaks of sons, then there has to be vessels to manifest that word for this season. It’s just that simple, and the vessel that God uses to manifest that portion of His Word for this season, steps into that promise for the hour, it becomes the manifested Word for the season.

49We saw it in William Branham, in Wesley, in Luther, in martin, in Paul, in Jesus, and Moses, and Joseph, and Daniel, and David, etc. All were thoughts of God before the foundations of the world, and in their generation they became the Living Word of God expressed out through the vessel that they lived in. Thus the manifested word for their hour.

50So as we see in verse 33 Paul said, Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth. 34Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.  So the condemnation will come, but so what. The judgments of people who do not understand what God has called you to will be there, but that’s their problem. You are focused on what God has called you too. You are focused on what God has revealed for you to do. You have stepped into your son-ship, so 35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

51Let us pray…
