1This evening we will speak on paragraphs 75b-79 where brother Branham speaks of the Whoring womb. In this study we will find that in order to commit adultery a woman must first receive that thought in her mind then she will perform the act. If you recall the Garden of Your mind we laid out the principle that the womb of the spirit is your mind, and in that mind there are many seeds that have been planted. Now, some of those seeds are God’s seed, the Word of God. But not all seeds in that womb of the mind are from God. The Bible says that train up a child in the way it shall go and when it gets old it will not depart.
375b I ain't saying the Catholics not good people, as good as anybody. They're human beings like we are. But when it comes to that old church, she's wrong. The Protestant's just as good... The Methodists as good as the Baptists, or Pentecostals, or anybody else. They're all the same.
4 76 But the thing of it is, how then can she be a harlot? Why? Give her the Word test. That's how you know it. Uh-huh. Try her on the Word once and see what she says. "Oh, of course, we're taught in the seminary that them days... Oh, it used to be that way, but (ha-ha) that was way back in the days of the apostles. That was only for the apostles only." You so-called Church of Christ "speak where the Bible speaks and silent where..." I'd like to hear you do some speaking now. See? No, you're shut up. God's Word shuts everything up, brother. No man can brag. That's right.
577 All her daughters are harlots. How? By the same as their mammy: committing just spiritual fornications against the Word. That's how the Catholic church become a whore. That's how her daughters become harlots: same thing, spiritual fornication against the Word. She and her daughters has a whoring womb. Only death can come from them. God can't bring life through death, and anything that's born dead is not alive. Like Job said, "Can you bring a clean thing out of an unclean? No not one." Right. Well, how can she give birth herself when she's dead herself? How can she be virgin when she is a whore? See, there you are. That's the whole thing.
678 Oh, my, now we're going to hit something real rich, full of vitamins from Genesis to Revelation. Notice, and she and her daughters has a whore's womb. Only death can come from them. If you want to join the organization, think you're all right, you see where you're landing. You're landing right in the midst of death. Just exactly. If you can't see that now, you're spiritually blind. See?
779 Now, let's go back now and pick up again and come down for something. You remember what last Sunday's service was? The Gate to the Soul. You remember? Now, there is a womb of the physical; there is a womb for the spirit. Did you believe that? There is a spiritual womb and a physical womb. And the mind is the womb to the spirit. Why? Now, remember, I told you last Sunday and drew it out here for you. There's five senses that enters this seed from the outside: see, taste, feel, smell, and hear; five on the inside: conscience, and so forth, from the inside five. Now, on the life side there's only one. That's you're on the basis of free moral agency to accept, take in, or let out. See?
880 That's how adultery is committed spiritually. When you, knowing better by the Word of God, by the intercourse of the mind, take in a lie of the devil against the Word of God: that's exactly what Eve done. With a spiritual intercourse first that come by believing Satan's lie into the womb of her mind, that polluted her soul, set death in the soul; then the natural act taken place. And that's the only way that a woman ever can commit adultery against her husband, is to first let some man talk her into it and then receive another man that's not her husband. Then she's committed adultery. And when the Bride of Jesus Christ lets manmade creeds and dogmas take the place of the Word of God, she is committing adultery.
11Deut 6: 4-9 4Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: 5And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. 6And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: 7And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. 8And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
14Now, verse 7 in the Amplified version is even more memorable, it says, “And these words which I am commanding you this day shall be first in your mind heart; (now, that is the problem I have seen in this Message the most. When children go wayward it is usually because the parents do not have a true revelation themselves. The children see mom and dad as hypocrites and know that that just play church and it is a social thing for them, but because they are not driven by this word, the children do not come into the proper manner of importance as they should have. I know that I must seem to many as a fanatic because of the strong stands I have taken over the years, but I would rather know my soul is right with God and have His approval than to have a large church full of compromising people. Notice next what he tells us to do). then (when? After you have established the word of God as first in your own mind and heart, then) you shall whet and sharpen them, so to make them penetrate,…
15Now, the scripture uses symbolism here to get the message across. If you wish for a knife or dagger to cut deeper into the flesh, you must first make sure it is very, very sharp, so you use a wet stone to sharpen the blade in order to make it penetrate as deep into the body as it can possibly penetrate. So he says.. you shall whet and sharpen them, so to make them penetrate, and teach (that’s number 1) and impress them diligently upon the minds and hearts of your children, (that’s number 2) and (number 3) You shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and (number 4) when you walk by the way, and (number 5) when you lie down and (number 6) when you rise up."
16I hope you can see the importance of not being wishy-washy with your children. We see that the people were commanded to place pictures and Scriptures and all sorts of things that the children will actually see with their eyes and when they see with their eyes it will have an influence in their minds and in their hearts.
17Now, we have already explained what it means to wet and sharpen the Scriptures to your children, but what does it mean when it says to imprss them upon the minds of your children. It tells us how to do it. It says, You shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and (number 4) when you walk by the way, and (number 5) when you lie down and (number 6) when you rise up."
18But what does it mean to IMPRESS them upon their minds. The word Impress means 1. To affect strongly, favorably: 2. To produce or attempt to produce a vivid impression or image of: 3. To mark or stamp with or as if with pressure: impressed a design on the hot wax. 4. To apply with pressure; press.
19So it is not a laid back attitude you are to take with your children, It is an attitude that when they do wrong, it seems like the end of the world. You do not impress without a press, for the word is IM-PRESS as in making an imprint. When you press a coin into wax or clay to make a mold, that is what you are doing to make the mold. And the word should be presented as Life and death, not lackadaisically.
21Brother Branham said in the MessageIsraelinEgypt53-0325 104, Well, they say, "I don't need anybody to teach me. Glory to God, I got the Holy Ghost." Well then, the Holy Ghost was wrong when It said It set some in the church, teachers. God put them in the church as teachers. That settles it. Why'd He put teachers in there, if the Holy Ghost is going to do all the teaching? See?What people needs is their brains baptized, besides their water. That's right.
22Again in the message Demonology 2 Religious 41-78 53-0609 178 he said,I said, "Instead of baptizing your body, you need your brains baptized." That'sright.You don'tstop tothinkof things.You don'ttry toconsiderit."
23And in the messageBlasphemous Names 62, 22-1The biggest part of our faith is mental faith. By hearing the Word it brings us to a mental recognition of God. But if this coming from above, oh, brother, if it ever strikes this, there is a godly, spiritual faith. Then what does that faith do? That faith recognizes only the Word. No matter what anything else says, it only recognizes the Word, because "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (And the Word's still God.) And the Word was made flesh and dwelled among us." And when the word Itself is pouring into our faith, our mental faith becomes a spiritual revelation. "And upon this foundation I'll build My Church," (See?), not upon a mental conception of church joining, a mental conception of that, but upon the revelation. When them streams of grace has poured into that mental faith that you've got, then upon this, a spiritual revelation, "I'll build My Church and the gates of hell can't prevail against it." See?
24Now, in getting to our thought on how the womb of the mind can be a whoring womb, let me say that when you fill your mind with any thoughts other than God thoughts, you are filling it with a compromising spirit and that is what a whore does. She compromises what morals she did have for other motives and objectives. It may be for money, it may be for position, it may be for popularity. But she has to give something in exchange for this goal that she has, and in her case it is that she compromises her body to gain those things.
26From the sermon, E-39 God Revealing Himself to His People 50-0813E.The right mental attitude towards any promise of God will bring it to pass. Do you believe that? The Word is a Seed (Is that right?) that a Sower sowed in the ground. And every Seed will bring forth of its kind. If you need salvation, the Seed's here. If you need healing, here's the Seed in the Word. The Word of God is a Seed. Put it in your heart. Don't dig it up every morning to see if it's sprouted, put it in there and leave it there. It's God's business to bring forth the harvest. You just leave it there;water it by faith and praise every day thanking God for it. All right.
27E-50 At Thy Word 53-1204I don't know how I'm going to do it, but at Thy Word, Lord." That's it. Take God at His Word, and God's spoken Word must--will materialize and produce just exactly what It says It will.Listen. The right mental attitude towards any Divine promise of God will bring it to pass. I don't care what it is.If you want corn, you plant corn, water corn, leave corn alone. It'll produce corn. Is that right? Wheat will produce wheat.The promise of salvation will produce a Christian.The promise of the Holy Ghost will bring It to you. The promise of Divine healing will make you well. Any Divine promise of God...And the Bible said that the Word of God is a Seed. Is that right?
28E-8 What Think Ye of Christ 53-1213MAnd if the right mental attitude, you just take the right mental attitude towards any Divine promise,watch it materialize. See? No matter how it looks, if it looks impossible, if God said so He makes it possible.
29175 Word Became Flesh India Trip 54-1003MEvery Word in the Bible is God'sthoughts laid in seedform, that if received into the human being, and spoke by the same thought that materialized the Bible, brings the thing to pass. See what I mean? How powerful could the Church be? The Bible said, "Let this mind that was in Christ be in you.As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he." Now,your thoughts, if they become expression... Like, God said, "Let there be a world." Before it could be a word, it had to be a thought. So God in the creation, created the world by His thought first, then spoke it, andthe thought, expressed became material. See what I mean?180Now, you can express it by mental conception, but if it becomes a real revelation of God, that you see it before it happened, and express it in word form, that word takes a hold and becomes material:a thought expressed. Oh, my, how God could... See?If your heart and your mind is so, and infilled with God's Spirit, until your thoughts become His thoughts... Amen. There you are. When your mind, and your leading, and your guiding, becomes a direct place, or a direct inspiration of the Holy Spirit that's moving your mortal being... Oh, my. What kind of people should we be?If the very Holy Spirit has you so embodied or empowered, that you don't use your own thoughts, you don't use your own mind, you don't use your own opinion; but the Holy Spirit has you so built, until your thoughts and your being is God's Spirit expressing Itself through you, what kind of a church would we be?What kind of a people would it be, this morning, if this Branham Tabernacle, this morning, was so filled with the Presence of God, why, when you didn't even use your own mind, didn't even use your own thoughts, didn't even have no alternative of your own, but just to be led by the Spirit...?212"As a man thinketh..."It has to become a thought before it can become a word. And a word expressed, materializes. I believe in my heart that I am a Christian, because I have accepted the Lord Jesus Christ; if I don't cry, if I don't move, if I don't do a thing.In my heart first, I believethat Christ died for me in my stead. Amen. I accept it as a Christian; I believe it as a Christian;then it's in my heart. Then I express it in a word, "I am a Christian." Hallelujah. Then I start walking as a Christian,talking as a Christian, living as a Christian,being as a Christian. And by my fruits I'm recognized by the world as a Christian. Hallelujah.
31Now, brother Branham spoke of the original seed being the Word of God and we see in 1 Peter 1: 23 that we are born again by an incorruptible seed that lives and abides forever. That seed is the Word of God. and notice what he also tells us in 2 Peter 1:3-4 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: 4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
32And, so we see that the Word is a Seed carrier of Eternal Life. Now, this evening I would like to look at this thought of the Word being a Seed in a little different way than perhaps you have heard before. Since we are talking about the Word as a Seed, I would like to break this down to our own personal level for a few minutes.
33Now, we know that the Word is a Seed, right? Then if the Word is a Seed, there is a life that is in that seed. Every seed is a carrier of life. We know this by definition. Butwhat is in a Word? The answer is thoughts.Before there were any words there were thoughts.Then the word is an expression of the thoughts.So in essencethe thoughts within the word are the life of the Word,right?
34Now to further understand how our mind is like a garden, we shall look further to the book of [Proverbs 23:7] Here we read,"For as a man thinketh in his heart so is he." And so we see that a man is what he thinks in his heart. And we have already shown that our thoughts are likened to the life that is in a seed. Therefore, we can conclude thata man is literally what he thinks, andtherefore his character is the sum of all of his thoughts."As every plant springs forth from a seed that was hidden in the earth, and could not have began without a seed, sotoo every action that we do, springs forth from a seed that was planted in our minds as a thought." Therefore our actions manifest what thoughts lay in our heart.
35InLuke 6:45 Jesus tells us thatthe words we speak all come forth from the abundance of the heart.And the word heart as we know,means the understandingwhich is the compilation of all of our thoughts. Therefore our actions and speech are only the fruitage which comes forth to manifest the seed-life within.
37Therefore, the life that is in the seed must become manifest. And therefore, whatsoever life is in the seed will come forth in an outward manifestation in due season. Our thoughts then are the seeds of our actions. And therefore if a man is righteous, it is because he has righteous thoughts as we see in Proverbs 12:5 The thoughts of the righteous are right: but the counsels of the wicked are deceit.
40Brother Branham taught us the simple principle that before you can actually do the sin-act in your flesh, you must first have to think of it in your mind. Therefore the Greatest battle ever fought is in the mind.
41Since we know that God created man in his own image, then we must consider that as God brings forth into manifestation His thoughts and desires of His heart, so does man do the same. Jer 23:20 The anger of the LORD shall not return, until he have executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it perfectly.
42Your mind then is likened to a garden which will grow forth fruit,whether good or bad depending on what we do with it. In a natural garden we plant the seeds that we want to bring to harvest. We cultivate our garden so that no weeds will grow in it. It takes work, but if we sow we shall also reap. The problem is that there is another who also wishes to sow in our minds as well. Jesus tells the parable of the two sowers who went forth sowing seeds. The First was the Son of Man and the other one was the devil. The Son of Man sowed forth good seed which was the Word of God. But the devil sowed his own word seed which brought forth tares or weeds. Now we are likened as to the husbandmen who are responsible for this garden. We are supposed to act as good stewards of the good seed which is the Word of God. But if we are not really interested in what kind of harvest we shall reap, then we do not cultivate the good seed. We just let whatever grows to grow. And this will result in the weeds overtaking the seeds every time.
44And so we see that every deed is first committed in the heart, or mind. Matt 12:35 35A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.
47The Bible tells us,"As he thinketh in his heart, so is he."Therefore we are the product of our thoughts just as any fruit is product of the seed that was planted in the ground. That is why we are told to cast down any thought that would exalt itself against the Word of God.
49Notice that we are told to bring every thought into obedience to the Word of God. Matt 12:33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.
50Luke 3:8-9 Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. 9 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: every tree therefore which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
51If we are righteous it is because we think righteous thought. And if you have your source from God then you will not be able to help but to think God’s thoughts. Remember the parable of the two sowers. They both sowed seed, but the Seed from the Son of Man was called he good seed. And we see that a good plant will only produce a good fruit.
52Now I believe thateverything you are,even your Charactercomes forth from the garden of thought that is in your heart, making you what you really are. Brother Branham told us that when we are born again, we receive everything that we will ever have need of to bring forth the image of God in us.
54This evening, I would like to show you how the thought in your mind affect every thing about you, not only does it affect your character, and the molding of your character, but it will even affect the circumstances that you enter into daily, which circumstances are used by God in the shaping of your character into it’s final product that God has predestined for you.Therefore, every trial you endure, every test that God puts you through, comes about as a result of the Seed thoughts that lay within your heart.
56Here we see that it should not surprise us when we face our trials, because these trials are made for the purpose of testing us. In fact we see in 1 Peter 1:7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
57Not only are we ordained to these tests, but we are also ordained to pass them.WUEST TRANSLATION ....In which last season you are to be constantly rejoicing with a joy that expresses itself in a triumphant exuberance, although for a little while at the present time if perchance there is a need for it, you have been made sorrowful in the midst of many different kinds of testings in order that the approval of your faith, which faith wasexaminedby testing for the purpose of being approved, that your approval being much more precious than the approval of gold which perishes, even though that gold be approved by fire-testing, may be discovered after scrutiny to result in Praise, Honor and Glory at the time of the Revelation of Jesus Christ;
58Therefore, we can say that every trial that you go through and ever time you are put to a test by God and you can not see beyond the circumstance which surround your life, just remember that these are all a result of the seeds of your thinking and they have spawned forth from the garden of your own mind. Remember, what Paul told us in the book of
59Romans 8:28-31 tells us that all things shall work together for our good, and that we are the called and that we are ordained to the image of the first born son. So if everything about us is already predestined from God, then the very thoughts we think, He knew before the foundations of the World, and He knows not only what you have thought, but what thoughts you will think too. Then we can see the relationship of these thoughts that we have and how they influence our growth into the image of His Son.
61And as we receive each and every new experience, our minds begin to examine the circumstances in our lives with a more mature understanding. Paul said in 1 Corinthians 13:11"When I was a child, I spoke as a child, because I understood as a child understands, because I thought as a child thinks, but now that I have become a man, I put away from my mind childish thinking."And so we see that our mind is in a constant growth pattern, in which our garden or thoughts are constantly being upgraded so to speak, or renewed by what life experiences we go through on our journey of becoming.
62Therefore we must understand that since our character development is dependent upon receiving every outside stimuli that will produce in our thinking, the thoughts of God, thus we can see the dependence upon these stimuli in order to bring us into fulfillment toward the ultimate goal of receiving the very mind of God. Therefore,our reactions that we show toward these circumstances is an outward indication as to where we stand in our development toward the end-product of our being.How we handle each circumstance will depend upon what stage we are in, in our progression toward our ultimate character. Thenwhat appears to be a test at one stage in our progression, will not appear to be so at a further stage in our character development.
63Circumstances are just like taking a test in school. What would appear to be a very difficult thing for us in the first year of schooling, would not even appear to be a test after twelve years of schooling. The further on in our progressive state that we move into toward the image of God that we are conforming to, the further developed will be our response mechanism that we harbor in our mind set or seed garden of our thinking.Therefore every circumstance that we face in life is a growth from our own mind or thoughts.Circumstances grow out of thought. We are only buffeted by circumstances so long as we perceive these to be an outside influence upon our lives.
64But when we come to the place wherewe realize that circumstances that come forth in our lives are a direct result of our own mental state, we will begin to appreciate their use and purpose in our growth toward the finished product that God has destined for each one of us.
65Anyone who has for any length of time, been a practicing Christian, and who has practiced self control and self purification or sanctification, will have noticed that the alteration in their circumstances have been in a direct ratio to the alteration in their mental state.When a man purposely and earnestly makes an effort to remedy their personal character defects, and makes a swift and marked progress, toward bettering themselves in those areas of weakness, they pass swiftly through a succession of unpredictable changes.Therefore,the soul attracts that which it secretly desires,and also that which it fears the most.It not only reaches the heights of it’s desired aspirations, but it also falls to the level of it’s unchastened desires, and circumstances are the means by which the soul receives what it longs for.
67Sooner orlater each thought seed we have sown in our hearts will have to take blossom and become manifested in our lives as an action or deed.Andeach action or deed will bear it’s own fruit in terms of opportunity or circumstances. As the Scripture tells us,good thoughts will bear good fruit and bad thoughts will bear bad fruit. That is why we must come to the place wherewe begin to monitor and control what we think and believe.
68In 1 Peter 1: 20-22 we find Peter tells us that if we suffer for Christ sake it is acceptable with God, but if we suffer for what we have caused, then we should take the consequences patiently, knowing that all things are working together for our own good. As you can see, you thoughts are seeds that must by their nature of being a seed, bring forth into manifestation the nature that is in the seed.
69Since the life in the seed will make itself known, then when the seed thought does give way to a life experience in the form of an action or a deed, it will then cause other things to happen in response. Therefore as Peter said, don’t be so shocked and surprised if your actions cause other circumstances to happen which you may feel you can not control. You really can control them by not causing them to happen in the first place.
70For every action there is a reaction. Therefore, it behooves us to be careful how we do things. If we really believe that everything we sow will result in a reaping, then when we sow hateful speech, or criticisms, we should not be surprised when the criticisms come back our way. Therefore we should be able to now seehow the outer world of circumstances actually shape themselves to our inner world of thought. And both pleasant and unpleasant external conditions are factors which make for our ultimate good, or work together for our good. That is whywe learn byboth sufferingandreceiving blessings. Each of these outward stimuli helps to further our growth toward that image of Christ that we so long to be in our souls. Therefore we should be able to see that our actions are only an expression of our thoughts.Circumstances do not just happen, they grow out of the conditions of our heart.
71Just as our spiritual lives are progressive where word must be piled upon word to bring forth that Glorified body, so too do our circumstances add to our suffering in order to help our character to grow and develop.Every situation we face in life is like the piece of a large puzzle that once fitted together gives purpose and meaning to each of them.The circumstances and conditions we face each day are only reflectors which help us to know how far along in our development we have come. Therefore, you may not always receive what you pray for, but know one thing for sure,youwill always receive what you have sown for.Therefore our desires and prayers are only gratifying to us when they are in harmony with what we are actually sowing in the recesses of our mind. When we fight circumstances, we are only revolting against the effect of what we have been sowing. We see the circumstances that are without and we may not like what we see, yet they are there only because we keep nourishing them in our minds, and we keep feeding and thus preserving them in the gardens of our mind.
72We so often wish to improve upon our circumstances, but yet we are so unwilling to improve ourselves. And that is why our circumstances remain the same.If we shrink from crucifixion of self, we shall never achieve our hearts desire.A man who wishes to have a better life style, must be willing to work for what he wants. Too many people live at the poverty level and wish daily that they could rise above it, and yet they are personally unwilling to do something about their condition other than gripe and complain about it. You are the reason you are what you are. What you have sown is what you are reaping in your life.
73You don’t get a close knit family by the luck of some draw, but you get a close nit family by hard work and constant communication.Good thoughts and actions can never produce bad results. Jesus told us that a Good tree can not produce bad fruit. Therefore if we think good thoughts, we will have good actions which will produce good results.
75Psalms 37:4 and Proverbs 16:4 tells us that when you make the commitment; you are the one who must sow, and then God simply honors the Law or Reproduction that says,every seed will bring forth after it’s own kind.I have seen too many people complain about their lack of victory, yet they do not sow victory, but defeat.
76E-17 Hour Is Come 51-0415EYour right mental attitude towards God's Divine promise will bring any promise to pass. Now, maybe you don't believe that. You say, "Well, my faith is weak."I wouldn't confess it. See?Don't let the devil know that.Always say, "I have good faith.I believe God with all my heart." See? Don't testify nothing of the devil.And when you accept Him as your Healer, don't never act like you're sick or crippledany more. Believe that you're healed. Take Him at His Word. Thenit's all over on God then and not on you. See?As long as you take God at His Word, then the Word will produce what It promised to do.
77Therefore,Beautiful thoughts of all kinds will crystallize into habits of Grace and kindness, whichsolidify into friendly and cheerful circumstances: pure thoughts crystallize into habits of holiness and self control, which further solidify into circumstances of rest and peace. If you sowthoughts of self reliance,courage and decisiveness, theywill bring forth circumstances of success, plenty and freedom; energetic thoughts crystallize into habits of cleanliness and industry, which solidify into circumstances of courteousness: gentle and forgiving thoughts solidify into protective and preservative circumstances.
78Loving and unselfish thoughts crystallize into habits of self-forgetfulness for others which solidify into circumstances of sure and abiding prosperity and true riches."To have friends you must show yourself friendly"If you keep sowing the same particular train of thoughts, be it good or bad, it cannot help but to produce its results on the character and circumstances in which you live.
79[Isaiah 58:11] "Andthe Lord shall guide thee continually, andsatisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: andthou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose water s fail not."
80Therefore, everything you are, even yourCharactercomes forth from thegarden of thoughtthat is in your heart, making you what you really are. And the garden of your thoughts affects every thing that is already in you, not only affecting your character, and molding your character, but even to the circumstances that you enter into daily, and the way you handle those circumstances. And God uses those circumstances in shaping of your character into it’s final product that He has predestined for you.Therefore, every trial you endure, every test God puts you through, comes about as a result of the Seed Thoughts that lay within your heart. Therefore, every thought seed that is sown, or that we allow to fall into the fertile soil of our minds, to take root there, will produce it’s own, after it’s own likeness or nature.Sooner or later each thought seed we have sown in our hearts will have to take blossom and become manifested in our lives as an action or deed. And each action or deed will bear it’s own fruit in terms of opportunity or circumstances. As the Scripture tells us, good thoughts will bear good fruit and bad thoughts will bear bad fruit.
81ThereforeLoving thoughts create an atmosphere of help, and trust, which crystallize into habits of Grace, kindness, and charity, which creates further circumstances of friendliness and cheerful benevolence, and reciprocity on the behalf of those who are the recipients of your loving thoughts.
