1From
paragraph 96 of
The Spoken Word is the original Seed
brother Branham said,  96… When God
and His Word becomes one
(Hallelujah.) that's when God's Spirit waters the
Seed of God, the Word of God, It
produces God
; and it's not the
individual
; it's God. For “you are dead”; you're not yourself no more. You reckon yourself dead,
hollowed out, waiting for the Seed germ.

2Paul
Said in, 2 Timothy 2:11-12 It is a
faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him If
we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:
So suffering and death are essential components of God
molding and shaping us into the very image of His beloved first born son.

3Now,
brother Branham continues in paragraph 96…Then what is it? It
isn't you no more; isn't the man; it's God IN the man.
It's a Seed germ
like the beginning spoken Word. God's
Word made manifest IN the man
; then
it isn't the man
; it's the man that's died. ….  

4Notice,
that is exactly what the Apostle Paul told us in
Galatians 2:16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works
of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus
Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works
of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be
justified. 17But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ,
we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the
minister of sin? God forbid. 18For if I build again the things
which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. 19For
I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God. 20I
am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in
me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son
of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.21I do not frustrate
the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in
vain.
:

5Then
brother Branham added in pp 96... Then let God plant His Own Life in you, then
it's not you no more; it's God's Life, because it's God's Word, watered by the
Holy Spirit will produce the same thing.

6We see this in Romans 8:10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11But
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 dwells in you.” 

7You
see, that is what Brother Branham is saying when he says, let God plant His Own Life in you, then it's not
you no more; it's God's Life,
And in Romans 8:12 Paul addsTherefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the
flesh, to live after the flesh. 13For if ye live
after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye
through the Spirit
do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
14For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the
sons of God. 15For ye have not received the spirit
of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby
we cry, Abba, Father. 16The Spirit itself bears
witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: 17And
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. 18For
I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared
with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19For the
earnest expectation of the creature waits for the manifestation of the sons of
God.

8Now,
we will move forward to pp. 97
All right. Manifested, the works manifested the same by us, for It
is the same Word
. Now, if you
want to do the works of Christ, do the same thing He done
. "He that
believeth on Me shall have My works." What is that? Believeth what? That He is
the Original Seed germ that come.
And remember, what were the
works of Christ? John 5:19, “the son can do nothing but
what the Father shows him to do, and whatsoever the father doeth, the son doeth
likewise.”

9Then brother
Branham says, Now,
the Word that God spoke to multiply and
replenish the earth, It couldn't find a place to land.
Finally this Word caught into the womb of a virgin. (We'll speak of
the two wombs this afternoon more...?...)

10I would
like to add here that when brother Branham says there are two wombs, he is
referring to the physical womb and the spiritual womb of the mind where ideas
are conceived and brought to life.

11Back to
The Spoken Word he continues, And what happened? From
Him came forth the germ Life
, the thing that gives, the Water that gives the kernel its chance to reproduce itself. The
Spirit came out of Him and went up.

1298Here we are. We come along. What happened? We
believe It
; we believe It. Now,
what did Jesus say? "He that
believeth on Me
(See?)... He that believeth on Me, the works that I do, the
manifestation that the Holy Spirit come in the form of a dove come upon Me and
done this (not through hybreeding, but through virgin born...)" Not the
course of life, like breeding a child, husband to wife; no, not that, not a
hybreed, but a virgin born. "Now, through this, I'm giving this Life
that if you by faith will accept what Father, all the prophets, all the Word of
God, I will pour this Life down upon you, and you can't do nothing else but
produce the same thing that I am
.
" There you are.

1399"The
works that I do shall he do also." And what did He do? Just as the
Father led Him
, what He saw. Saint
John 5:19
, just... "I do
nothing till the Father shows Me
." What was He, made Himself a man.
God was made flesh and dwelled among us. The
Word was made flesh and dwelt among us
. God's spoken Word, through a virgin, brought forth a body, and in that
body come the--the Water, the Spirit, and washed by the water of the Word and
then went in Him, dwelt in Him, and there come the Life of God manifesting
Himself through Christ. God was in Christ, the anointed One.

14I would
like to take these wonderful thoughts we read here and add some thoughts that some
say brother Branham sent in a letter to Br. Ernest Fantler, and was made available to the public through brother Robert
Goff. Now, I do not know if Brother Branham was quoting this from GD Watson a
19th century minister or not, but regardless of the source the words
ring true.

15 “If God has called you to be like Jesus in all
your spirit, then He will draw you into a life of crucifixion and humility, and
put on you such demands of obedience, that He will not allow you to follow
other Christians,…

16Romans 8:17 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.

171 Corinthians 9:12 If others be partakers of this power over you, are
not we rather? Nevertheless we have not used this power; but suffer all things,
lest we should hinder the gospel of Christ.

18“and in
many ways He will seem to let other good people do things which he will not let
you do. Other Christians and ministers who seem very religious and useful may
push themselves, pull wires, and work schemes to carry out their plans, but you
cannot do it; and if you attempt it, You will meet with such failure and rebuke
from the Lord as to make you sorely penitent. Others can brag on themselves, on
their success, on their writings, but the Holy spirit will not allow you to do
any such thing and if you begin it, He will lead you into some deep
mortification
that will make you despise yourself and all your good works .”

19Now, this
deep mortification means God will cause to come upon your soul a deep feeling
of shame, and humiliation, for what you have attempted to do outside His Will
for yourself.

20It is not that God will slam you to the earth for this, because he allows
others to do it and get away with it without feeling or remorse or grief. But
you are different. You are His to do with whatsoever he desires. And all you
want to do is that which would be pleasing to Him, and thus you are smitten in
your soul, of your own volition. That means by your own conscious choice and
not because of fear of reprisal.

21In the book of Philemon Paul called Himself a
prisoner of the Lord Jesus Christ. Now a prisoner is one who is not in control
of his own destiny, but is totally captive to another.  A Prisoner is a person held in custody, captivity, or a
condition of forcible restraint, especially while on trial or serving a prison
sentence. 2. One deprived of
freedom of expression or action:

22You see it is God working in you to perform, it is
not yourself. Philippians 2:13 For it
is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
God Himself, His very Life in you working in you to will
what He wills and to do what He would have you to do.  

23 “Others will be allowed to succeed in making
great sums of money, or having a legacy left to them or in having luxuries, but
God may supply you daily, because He wants you to have something far better
than gold, and that is a helpless dependence on Him, that He may have privilege
of providing your needs day by day out the unseen treasury.

24And God spoke this of His Son to
Isaiah, in Isaiah 
42:19
Who is blind, but my servant? or deaf, as my
messenger that I sent? who is blind as he that is perfect, and blind as the
LORD'S servant?
 The Lord may let others be honored
and put forward, and keep you hid away in obscurity, because He wants to
produce some choice, the fragrant fruit for His coming and glory, which can
only be produced in the shade.”

25When we realize that we belong to Him, then we will
lay aside our own desires and look to His will to be done.

26David who was a man after God’s own heart said in Psalms 100: 3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we
ourselves; we are His people,
and the sheep of His pasture.

27And the Apostle Paul who acknowledged Himself to a
prisoner of the Lord Jesus Christ said in Ephesians 2:10
For we are His
workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained
 (set in order and
predetermined) that
we should walk in them.

28 “God will let others be great, but keep you
small. He will make you work and toil on without knowing how much you are
doing; and then to make you still more precious, He will let others get the
credit for the work which you have done, and this will make your reward ten
times greater when Jesus comes.”

29“The Holy Spirit
will put a strict watch on you with a jealous love and will rebuke you for
little words and feelings or wasting your time, which other Christians never
seem distressed over. So make up your mind that God is an infinite Sovereign,
and has a right to do as He pleases with His own, and He will not explain to
you a thousand things which may puzzle your reason in His dealings with you.”

30Zechariah 8:2 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; I was jealous for Zion with great jealousy,
and I was jealous for her with great fury.

31And Joshua speaking to the people said in Joshua 24:19 … The LORD: He is an holy God; he is a jealous
God;

32And Moses said in Deuteronomy
6:15
(For the LORD thy God is a jealous God among you)

33And again in Deuteronomy
4:24
For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire, even a
jealous God.

34So make up
your mind that God is an infinite Sovereign, and has a right to do as He
pleases with His own, and He will not explain to you a thousand things which
may puzzle your reason in His dealings with you.”

35John 5:19 Then
answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily,
(truly, truly) I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what
he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the
Son likewise.

36John 14:31 But that the world may know that I love the
Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go
hence.

37John 15:10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my
love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.

38John 12:49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father
which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should
speak.

39John 12:50 And I know that his commandment is life
everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so
I speak.

40“God will
take you at Your word; and if you absolutely sell yourself to be his slave, He
will wrap you up in a jealous love, and let other people say and do many things
that you cannot do or say.

41Jesus Himself said in John
5:30
I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I
judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will
of the Father which hath sent me.

42So if he could do nothing but what the Father showed
him to do or say, he was a total prisoner of the father. But not out of fear,
no he was a bond slave out of Love for his Father.

43Matthew 12:50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which
is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

44Matthew 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord,
shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father
which is in heaven.

45John 14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he
it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I
will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

46“Settle it
forever, that You are to deal directly with the Holy Spirit, and that He is
have privilege of Tying of your tongue, or chaining Your hand, or
closing your eyes
, in ways that others are not to deal with. Now when you
are so possessed with the living God that you are, in your secret heart,
pleased and delighted over this peculiar, personal private, jealous
guardianship and management of the Holy spirit over your life, you will have
found vestibule of heaven.”
That means you will
have found your place or entrance into heaven, for we are given access through
Christ into this glorious liberty of God, to walk in His Word and to become the
Living breathing Word of God incarnate among brothers and sisters in need of
hope and life.

471 Corinthians 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God,
and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

48Ephesians 4:6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and
through all, and in you all.

491 Corinthians 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of
the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

501 Peter 5:6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand
of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

512 Thessalonians 1:12 That the
name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according
to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

522 Corinthians 1: 21 Now he
which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God;

53Romans 15: 13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and
peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy
Ghost.

542 Corinthians 13:11 Finally,
brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in
peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.

552 Corinthians 11:7 Have I committed an offence in abasing myself that
ye might be exalted, because I have preached to you the gospel of God freely?

56Colossians 2:6-12 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the
Lord, so walk ye in him:
7Rooted and built up in him, and established in the
faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
8Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit,
after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 9For in him
(not
in mere traditions of men or in their vain philosophy, but IN HIM) dwells all the fullness
of the Godhead bodily. 10And ye are complete IN
him
, which is the head of all principality and power: 11IN
whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting
off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:

57Col. 3:1-5 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things
which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. 2Set
your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. 3For
ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. 4When
Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. 5Mortify therefore your members which are upon the
earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and
covetousness, which is idolatry:

58Rev. 3:21 To him that
overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame,
and am set down with my Father in his throne.

60       The High Call

61If God has called you to be like JESUS in all your
spirit, He will draw you into a life of crucifixion and humility, and put on
YOU such demands of obedience, that He will not allow you to follow other
Christians, and in many ways He will seem to let other good people do things
which he will not let you do. Other Christians and ministers who seem very
religious and useful may push themselves, pull wires, and work schemes to carry
out their plans, but YOU cannot do it; and if you attempt it, You will meet
with such failure and rebuke from the Lord as to make you sorely penitent.
Others can brag on themselves, on their success, on their writings, but the
Holy spirit will not allow you to do any such thing and if you begin it, He
will lead you into some deep mortification that will make you despise yourself
and all your good works .

62Other will
be allowed to succeed in making great sums of money, or having legacy left to
them or in having luxuries, but God may supply you daily, because He wants you
to have something far better than gold, and that is a helpless dependence on

unseen treasury. The LORD may let others be honored and put forward, and keep
you hid away in obscurity, because He wants to produce some choice, the

63God will

without knowing how much you are doing; and then to make your still more
precious, He will let others get the credit for the work which you have done,
and this will make your reward ten times greater when JESUS comes.

64The Holy
spirit will put a strict watch on you with a jealous love and will rebuke you
for little words and feelings or wasting your time, which other Christians
never seem distressed over. So make up your mind that God is an infinite
Sovereign, and has a right to do as He pleases with His own, and He will not

65God will
take you at Your word; and if you absolutely sell yourself to be his slave, He

66May the God of all comfort be with
you all, amen. Let us pray…
