1Let us pray, “We thank Thee for this opportunity to come into Thy Presence with Thanksgiving and joy in our hearts, knowing that it is true that we are Your children, spirit of your Spirit and Word of Your Word. And because we are children you have given us a spirit of adoption whereby we cry Abba Father. Thank you dear God and Father for giving us life by Thy word, and for making us to come alive by the hearing, and recognizing, and to show we are alive by our acting upon what we have seen and recognized in our day, for we ask it in Jesus Christ’s name”. Amen, you may be seated.
2Now, this morning we are going to look more and more into the very theme of this Sermon of Brother Branham’s which I have pointed out to you as we have gone from paragraph to paragraph over these last 235 sermons, because the Scripture brother Branham brings more to our attention than any other Scripture throughout this six and one-half hour sermon of his concerning the Spoken Word is the original Seed. And that Scripture that he used more than any other in this sermon is Genesis 1:11, that every seed must bring forth after its kind.
3And since this scripture deals with the law of reproduction which is the law of Life, then it behooves us to listen closely to what this vindicated Prophet of God has to tell us from this Scripture. And this morning we will see again how important this Scripture is to us, but before we read the next few paragraphs from his sermon, we will look to the Word of God and take Genesis 1 as our text.
5Genesis 1:1In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 3And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. 5And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. 6And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. 7And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. 8And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day. 9And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. 10And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.
6Notice that up to this point everything God did was to prepare earth to receive Life, and then be able to sustain that Life. God, who is the fountain of Life gave light first for in order for life to exist and come into being there must be light. Paul said all things that manifest, are manifested by the light. Ephesians 5:13 for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.
7And then the next thing God does is to separate the waters from above from the waters below. Notice also it takes water to sustain life. Notice also that the first time God spoke there was separation take place. The light separated from darkness. Then the next time God spoke, the waters were separated. Then as we will see in verse 11 the very next time God speaks there is also separation.
811And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. 12And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 13And the evening and the morning were the third day.
9Now, when life comes forth and multiplies, it must first divide itself to do that. The cell divides from 1 to 2, and from 2 to 4, and from 4 to 8 and on and on. So you can not have life without first separation. And to have life and then sustain that life, there had to be first light, then water. They have even proven in this age through hydroponics, that all that is required to grow tomatoes and other fruit is water and light.
10And So God first brought forth light by the spoken Word, and then he separated the waters by His Spoken Word, and He had to do this first, for if Life is dependent upon these two things to live, then it would have been foolish to bring forth life first and then the other. So God always prepares the way first then he plants the seed of Life.
1114And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: 15And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. 16And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. 17And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, 18And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good 19And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
14And of Course Jesus said himself in, John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. And again in John 9:5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world. And again in John 12:35-36 Jesus said, “Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth. While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them.”
15And the Apostle Paul told us in 2 Corinthians 4:6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
16And of Course we can not leave out the Apostle John who said in 1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
18Now, notice in verse 20“And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life,” There you are, Life coming forth right out of those very waters that he had separated. “and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
2021And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. Again we see life, the purpose of God’s creation is to bring forth Life. For God is the author of Life, the great fountain of Life.
21Now, as we continue to read, I want you to notice it is all about God bringing froth Life. 22And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. 23And the evening and the morning were the fifth day. 24And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, (notice that law of reproduction, after its kind, after its nature…) cattle, and what about cattle? Ever see a cow produce a goat? After its kind… and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. 25And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
22So by now we can see that no matter what specie God brought forth, it was to reproduce itself after its kind. Not cross breeding, not one specie developing into another specie. Darwin was nuttier than a hoot-owl. Man no more came from an ape than some fish walked out of the sea, sprouted wings and became a bird of the air. The Apostle Paul called it “science so-called”, and nothing short of conjecture and nonsense.
24So now that God has established his law of Life which is the law of reproduction, he then brought forth man in his own image after his own kind, after his own nature. 26And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. 29And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. 30And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. 31And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
25Just one more thought, not for doctrine but for thought, if you will notice that God gave us fruit from the trees He said, for our meat and to the animals he gave the green vegetables and green grasses.
26Now, that we have opened our study this morning looking at this law of Life, let us move forward into brother Branham’s sermon The Spoken Word is the Original Seed. Because he is dealing with a thought that simply amazed me as I read the next few paragraphs of his sermon.
27The Spoken Word is the original Seed pp. 164 “Paul was afraid that the people would watch some kind of a big words that he could say (some of his education). I Corinthians 2:1-8, you want to put it down. I Corinthians 2:1-8, Paul said, "I never come to you speaking words (intellectual, you know), that your faith might be in some seminary thing, but I come to you with the simplicity, in the power and demonstration of the Holy Ghost, that your faith would rest in the Word of God." Yes, sir.
28165 Although the denominational churches will outnumber the Bride a thousand to one... Do you believe that? You believe the Bible teaches it? Isaiah 54:1, He promised it. You want me to read it? All right, let's get it. If you want to see where it's at where He promised that they'd outnumber, let's get over to Isaiah 54:1 “Sing, O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith the Lord. That right? More are the children of the whore than the married wife:” sure, outnumber us many times. Though they be more in numbers they have no true father. Now, the denominational kinds is represented in Jude 8-13. That's the secular church: "Clouds without rain, foaming out their own shame." The Pentecostal church is represented of that denominational group in II Timothy 3:1-8, "Having a form of godliness"; their seed produced their kind.
29Now, although these are wonderful thoughts here, we will have to get back to them next week since there is so much here in these few paragraphs, but to keep our continuity of thought, let’s read on…
30166“Notice, the eunuch... Oh here, we're going to get in something deep now”. (and let me tell you, he was not just saying this just to say it. We are about to hit on something very, very deep right here.) “Now, watch, this Seed-church, this real church with the real true sperm. Notice, the eunuch had been with all the D.D.'s. Now, remember, God never committed His preaching and His Gospel to an Angel. How many knows that? How many knows that Galatians 1:8 said if an Angel come from heaven and preach something else besides they had preached, let it be accursed? So the Angel's wrong if he's different from the Word.”
33So listen carefully to what brother Branham says next. 167 Now, Philip had been up to Pentecost, Jerusalem, to worship. How many says, "Amen," to that? The eunuch, he had been with all the D.D.'s and L.D.'s and everything. But why didn't he get something? He come back down studying the prophecy of Isaiah. Although an Angel directed Philip to him, but the germ of Life had to come through the body: Philip. Oh, brother, now we're on the line. Where did the germ come from? Through the Angel? The Angel showed him where to go. A Angel is a messenger; here's a son, Philip had the Germ, the Message, the Word. That's how a child can be born. Philip laid his hands upon him. Philip baptized him in the Name of Jesus Christ. There come forth the Spirit of God. Sure. Now the germ had to come from the body. What body? Christ's body. Correct. And Philip was a member of the Body.
34Now, I hope you are getting what he is saying here. Because this whole sermon, this six and a half hour sermon has focused us to this point to know and understand that God wants a family but God is spirit, so He placed His God-Life in Sons to bring forth sons. Hallelujah, I’m getting excited. Just think, Men provide the seed, the woman the atmosphere. But the life comes down from the man, and it can’t come down from Spirit, it must come through a body. Jesus did not materialize in the manger. He was not teleported down to earth as spirit. He could never have manifested or declared and openly revealed the God-Life as a spirit. So God produced an egg and sperm and placed it into the womb of the woman, because the expressed image of God had to come through a body.
36Let’s read on 168 Now, listen, the same thing took place in Acts 10:48. Peter was on the housetop. An Angel directed him to Cornelius' house, but where did the Word come from? The body. Oh, I feel pretty good, feel like traveling on. An Angel come and said, "Don't worry; don't call nothing unclean; just go on; don't think nothing." And while Peter spake these words, not the Angel, not the cardinal, while Peter spake these words... What? He was the body. He had the Word. The Word took hold. Oh, brother. Whew. Umph. Oh, my. Angel directed it, but the Life come through the body of Christ.
37Notice the new birth, the Holy Spirit Baptism came to individual sons, quickening them to life, not from an angel, but from sons to sons and daughters. Angels don’t have children, but sons do? Now, can you see why I go to these places like I do? O brother, I didn’t see this, I just saw the fruits of the work, and my love for the brethren, but all these children of God, these sons of God birthed by the Word of God that comes through sons of God.
39St. John 17:14I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. 16They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. 18As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 19And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. 20Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
40Notice what Jesus is saying here. He says, Father I have given them thy Word that they may be one with you even as I am one with you. And not only these that I have given them Thy word to, but the others that will receive your word through these others that I am sending, that we all might be one because we have all received Thy Seed, Thy God-Life, Thy Doxa, which is Thy Opinion, Thy Values, and Thy Judgments. Because after all Father, as a man thinketh in his heart so is he, and so in expressing your Word, and Your Glory, Your opinions, and values, and judgments, these others have received Thy God-Life and are sons through their testimony, the testimony of those whom I have sent.
4121That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. 22And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: 23I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. 24Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. 25O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. 26And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.
42Now, do you see why it is so important to receive whomsoever God sends? Jesus said Himself, John 13:20 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. Why? Because by receiving Him you receive the God-Life that he is a carrier of. Don’t believe me? Turn to St. John 1:12.
43St. John 1:12But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14And the Word was made flesh,
44“As many as received him”, that’s what it says. And Jesus said if you receive one that I send you receive me. Why? because he’s a seed carrier, God’s sperm of His Word of Life Carrier. And what does it produce? Son of God-Life in the one who receives him.
45Don’t forget what brother Branham said to us in paragraph 91 of The Spoken word Original Seed 62-0318M P: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.
46Oh, how I love this sermon of brother Branham’s. and notice he says the seed must come through the body, not from an angel. All the angel did was give direction, but the spirit of God, the Sperm seed of God, the Word of God came from son bringing birth to sons. People want to make such a big deal about angels, but let’s face it, the angels could not bring the Word. And if they brought any word that was not God’s Word they were cursed for it.
47Notice brother Branham’s next example of this in paragraph 169 “Paul, on his way to Damascus, a vision directed him; but Ananias had the germ, had the Word. Amen. That prophet Ananias saw a vision. And said, "Go up there and lay your hands on him." Said, "Brother Saul, the Lord appeared to you on the road coming down here." How'd he know? He had the Word. The Word of the Lord came to the prophet. Prophesied, went up there, and said, "He sent me up here that I might lay my hands upon you, and you'd healed and receive the Holy Ghost, and receive your sight.” And the scales fell off his eyes, and he rose and was baptized in the Name of Jesus and went to studying. The Angel directed it. That's right. But Paul had the Seed germ. It takes the Spirit of God, the Seed to give Life Eternal. Whew. My.”
492 Peter 1:2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, 3According as his divine power (and what is the power of God? Romans 1;16 The Gospel is the power of God, the Life Seed of God, for Jesus said, “My Words are spirit and they are Life”. And Peter said,) According as his divine power (His word) hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory (God’s doxa, God’s Opinion, God’s values, God’s judgments) and virtue: 4Whereby 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. Notice through these divine promises, that’s God’s Word, through His Word ye might be partakers of the divine nature,.. Son of God Seed will bring forth a Son of God Seed.
50That’s what God promised in Hebrews 6:14 Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee. It’s all about bringing forth sons of God the way God intended it in the beginning when he told Adam in Genesis 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth…
51So when you hear the Word of God, think of it not so much as spiritual food in due season, for it is that, but it is also the Life of God being cast upon human troubled waters, and in the right soil this Son of God Seed will bring forth a Son of God Seed.
52That is exactly what the Apostle Paul told us in 2 Corinthians 9:10 Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness;) in other words, Son of God Seed will bring forth a Son of God Seed.
56Matthew 13:23 But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
59In Jeremiah 30:19 we read, And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small.
60And what God promised his people in the first exodus has to repeat at the third Exodus, for Alpha must become Omega. So we see the promise of God through Moses in the first Exodus is the same as what brother Branham is telling the people here in the third Exodus and is exactly what the Apostle Paul told them at the second Exodus.
61In Deuteronomy 30:16 “In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it”. Son of God Seed will bring forth a Son of God Seed.
62And again in Deuteronomy 8:1 All the commandments which I command thee this day shall ye observe to do, that ye may live, and multiply, and go in and possess the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers. Son of God Seed will bring forth a Son of God Seed.
63And again in Deuteronomy 7:13 And he will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee: he will also bless the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy land, thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep, in the land which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee.
64And in Genesis 22:17 we see God’s desire to bless us and the bring forth many more sons. That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;
