3pp.61 When Adam come to his wife, she was pregnant. She'd done something. She was mixed. She just hybrid the child, and it died. But when Joseph come to his bride, she was impregnated, but with Life. Adam's wife, or Adam's bride, when Adam, before they came together, just like Joseph and Mary, just like Christ and the church now... Don't you see it? See? And before they came together, Adam and Eve, she was impregnated with a corrupt seed from the serpent; and when Adam come to his wife he found her impregnated to death. See? Death, how? Spiritually, physically dead. But when Joseph, the human, come to his wife (Glory, can't hardly hold her.), she was impregnated with Life, the Word of God flesh among...?...
462 Bring back that spoken Word, bring back that Word of God which was Word here, come through a human's womb... Amen. God will do it anyhow. He spoke it, and it's got to be so. Oh Glory. Amen. That's our God. Oh, that's rich, brethren, if you can dissolve it --you can hit it. That's where He found them.
563 When Adam come to his wife, she was impregnated with the wrong seed. When Jo... That seed died. When Joseph come to his, she was impregnated. Now, what caused the different impregnation? Because that Adam's wife doubted the Word. Is that right? Joseph's bride believed the Word. That's the difference. So what is it then? It's the Word. Oh, that precious Word. It was... The world was formed by the Word of God. Hallelujah. There's my stay right there. Let all denominations and everything else fall and do what they are going to. On that Word I stand. That's why I have done what I've done. That's why I've downed denominations. You say, "Why, he's just a, breaks up churches." They said the same thing about our Lord. Just say it every time. See?
664 Now, now, he found her. Christ comes to His Bride. What does He find her? Same thing. Why? When she first started out... (Now, listen, I don't want you to miss this.) When she started out, she was a virgin. She was going to be all right. She went right on in that early church. It's to be wonderful. God gave him a Bride, and what did she do? If you know history, in 606 she goes right down there and impregnates herself with Roman dogma, a organization. And from that on, that old mother whore in the Bible give birth to churches, and they were harlots, which is a whore. That's Protestants, because they was every one born right out of her and everyone took her own thing--organization. Now, do you see why I'm against it? All right.
7I want you to notice that brother Branham here is speaking of two seeds, life and death. The One seed which genders to Life is because the Word is alive to them that have this seed. Because this is a living seed, full of life. But that other seed which genders to death, it has to use organization to hold its people together, because it has no life in it. So the Word of God coming alive to the one is what moves them and motivates them, while the other is held together by organization, which is death.
8Revelation 2:21And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. 22Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.
9So God who is the word discerns the heart and knows what seed lays in there, either life or death. Now, I would like you to see this is not just what Brother Branham thinks, it is what the Apostle Paul taught us as well in the book of Galatians.
12Romans 8:28And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.29For 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.
13And not only to be conformed to that Image, but the literal Life that was in the Son of God is to be formed inside of you. Remember, Jesus said in John 7: 24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment. And in 1 Samuel 16:7 we read, “But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.”
14And that is what we need to look upon as well, because if Christ is to be formed IN us, then it will not be an outward thing that takes place. Brother Branham taught us that if he came in this hour with nail scar hands and long hair and robe it would not be the way he would come. The Kingdom of God Jesus said, does not come by observation, but it is in the heart.
15Luke 17: 20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: It doesn’t come with an outward show. It is an inward thing this Kingdom, and it is in the hearts of men. 21Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. Now, the word translated here as “within” you was the Greek Word “entos”, is an adverb of the noun “en” which literally means among or within you. In other words, Jesus was not telling these Christ rejecting Pharisees that the Kingdom of God would be within them, as though it would be in their hearts. But he is telling them that the Kingdom of God will be “among them, or in their midst”, but they will not be aware of it.
16So he is saying it will not be an outward show, but something that although will be in their very midst, yet they will not recognize it, therefore they shall not see it, nor will they be aware of it, unless it is alive in their hearts, and then they will see it.
17So you see God’s Kingdom deals with the heart that is alive to God and His word. But the heart that is not born again is focused like all religions on the outward appearance only, and not on a surrender to the perfect will of God.
23Luke 6: 45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.
29John 13: 2 And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him; So the betrayal was placed into his heart by satan. So you see the devil dealt with his heart, but God wants to deal with the hearts of His Children.
30That is why we see in Acts 28: 27 For the heart of this people (the understanding of this people has become hardened and) is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes have they closed; lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
312 Corinthians 3: 3 Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.
32And that is why his word discerns our hearts. Hebrews 4: 12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
342 Corinthians 8: 16 But thanks be to God, which put the same earnest care into the heart of Titus for you. Now, Paul is speaking of Titus in whom God put the same care he had for the people into Titus heart. But you can leave that name blank and insert your name if you wish.
35But thanks be to God, which put the same earnest care into the heart of Michal for you. But thanks be to God, which put the same earnest care into the heart of Darek for you. But thanks be to God, which put the same earnest care into the heart of Glenn for you. But thanks be to God, which put the same earnest care into the heart of Wesley for you. But thanks be to God, which put the same earnest care into the heart of Nick But thanks be to God, which put the same earnest care into the heart of Adam for you. for you.
36You see what I mean, God wants your heart alive to His Word. That is the One seed that brother Branham is speaking of, the seed with life. And if only you new what he has planned for you it would stir your heart to come alive for sure.
38Romans 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. And righteousness is life. That is what the Scriptures tell us, and it comes by really understanding what Grace is all about. It is a free gift, not one that we use as a tool to manipulate others, but Grace has great tolerance for differences.
39Notice what Paul tells us in Galatians 3: 21 Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, then verily righteousness should have been by the law. But you see, law and legalism does not produce life, only death, stoning, and the curse of death to break the law.
40So Paul tell us in Romans 5: 21 That as sin (disbelief) hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord. Notice that Grace using a rightly wise Understanding is what brings Life.
41And again in Romans 5: 17 Paul tells us For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ. Again we see it is through grace and righteousness that Life will reign in us. Look, no one wins when the church atmosphere is legalistic and closed to the outside. Everyone wins when Grace and righteousness reign supreme in that church.
42Romans 8: 10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin (because of unbelief); but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. So what makes alive the spirit? Righteousness, which is right-wise-ness.
43Now, anybody can quote the Word and quote the Message, but it takes a right-wise-ness to present it in such a way as to make it come alive to those who hear it. Solomon prayed for wisdom and God gave it to him. Oh, if only the preachers would seek wisdom from God as to how to help the sheep to relax and not be afraid of the boogy man, instead of making up boogy man stories to frighten the sheep into submission.
44You know, you parents here and out there who hear this, never tell your children lies and fearful stories. Tell them stories that places Christ as their healer and Saviour and helper in times of need. Don’t lift up the boogy man and use him as a fear tool to make your children do the right things. Because if their motive is wrong for what they do right, then it is still not acceptable to God.
45As I mentioned a few weeks ago Martin Luther in his preface to Romans said, "How shall a work please God if it proceeds from an unwilling and resistant heart. To fulfill the law however, is to do its works with pleasure and love, and to live a godly and good life of one's own accord, without the compulsion of the law. This pleasure and love is put into the heart by the Holy Ghost."
46That is why Brother Branham said you could have the right doctrine but if your heart is wrong, then what good will it do you. God looks on the heart. That is why the Scripture tells us that the love of God constrains us. That means it is our motivator, or as Jesus said, my meat is to do the will of Him that sent me. In other words, “my motivation”, “my source of energy” “My meat is to do the will of Him that sent me."
47Notice how Jesus Himself tells us that it is from the heart where this love for god must come. Mark 12: 33 And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.
49Romans 6:17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine (that form of teaching, that right-wise-ness, notice…) which was delivered you. It was delivered to them to deliver them.
51Hebrews 13: 9 Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein. So if we are to produce in us the seed of Life,and if this is so, then from our heart we must first present grace by a right wise-ness, because Grace quickens and makes alive that which was dead.
