1Let us stand for the reading of the Word. Revelation 1:19 Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;

2Revelation 19:9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

3Revelation 14:13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write,…

4Revelation 21:5b And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

5Habakkuk 2:2 And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.

6Hebrews  8:10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:

7John 5:47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?

8This morning we have several beautiful paragraphs to read from The Spoken Word is the Original Seed, It is where brother Branham tells us how the Holy Spirit commanded him to take up his pen and write what the Holy Spirit was about to tell him.

9I began with our text from quite a few Scriptures this morning because one of the arguments that so many website ministers have used against Brother Branham accusing him of being false because he said the “Holy Spirit told him to take up his pen and write”. Therefore having read more than half a dozen Scriptures and I could have read dozens more, but to save time, it is very apparent that on many occasions the Holy Spirit spoke to His servants and told them to take up their pen and write. So with this in mind, let’s go to our study of Brother Branham’s sermon, The Spoken Word is the original Seed, and we will pick up at paragraph 170.

10PP. 170 Is it two o'clock yet? I know it. I'm going to read some then. Let me read just for about ten minutes, will you? I got a good notion; I could stay here, but I just better move on a little bit here, and we've got--our time. It's just twenty-five minutes until five, I don't know what time we'll get in Georgia. I wish I could stop and comment on this just a little bit, but I'm just going to read it real slowly.

11171 Now, listen close. Here's what I picked up the pen for, part of it. Do you see, friends, the way I have stood the way I have? See why I am contending, get away from them denominations and get a real church of God? See why it's got to come out of the Word? It can't come by the wisdom of man; it's got to come by the Word of God. That's the reason I believe the Word just the way It's written. I won't add nothing or take nothing; just preach It that way; just keep going. Now, brethren (you all on the tape), if you disagree with me, I'll pray for you; if I'm wrong, you pray for me. I'm going to read some now just...

12I want you to listen real close to this. Here's where the Spirit said, "Pick up the pen." I'll have to leave some of it go, but I've got to bring some of it to you.

13172 All right. Now, here is what I'm trying to say to you: The law of reproduction bring forth of its kind (Genesis 1:11). These last days, true church Bride comes to the Headstone, will be the super church, a super race. As they near the great Headstone they will be much like, so much like Him, even they will be in His very image in the order to be united with Him. They will be One. They will be the very manifestation of the Word of the living God. Denominations can never produce this. They will produce their creeds and dogmas mixed with the Word and brings a hybrid product.

14173 The first son was spoken Seed Word of God. He was given a bride (I'm just reviewing the Spirit, and I was picking up what I said. See?) a bride to produce himself. She fell. (See, that's what the bride was given, to produce himself again another son of God, but she fell by hybreeding. See?)--produced himself, but she fell: caused him to die. The second Son, a spoken Seed-Word of God was given a bride like Adam, but before He could marry her, she had fallen also; for she was put to a free moral agency like Adam's wife was: to believe God's Word and live, or doubt It and die; and she did.

15 174 Then from a little group of the true Seed of the Word, God will present Christ a beloved Bride, a Virgin, a Virgin of His Word. And through them and by them will be fulfilled all that has been promised for His Word in the Virgin, who knows no manmade creeds or dogmas. The Word of promise in Himself like it was in Mary, God Himself made manifest... He will act Himself by His own Word of promise so to fulfill all that has been written of Him. As He did when He came from the virgin womb (type of the spirit womb now), so will the Virgin now, accepting His Word: "Be it unto me as Thou has said," though it was said by an Angel while it yet was the written Word (Isaiah 9:6). They will love Him (love His), and will have His potentials, for He is their Head, and they are His subjects, subject to His Head. Headship of Christ was His.

16175 Notice, what harmony. Jesus never did anything until seen of the Father or the Father showed Him first: (Harmony between God and Christ. See? John 5:19) So will the Bride, and He shows Her His Word of Life (He shows Her), and she receives It. She never doubts it. Nothing can harm Her, not even death; for if the Seed be planted, the water will raise it up again. Amen. (Now, I got a great big "Hallelujah.") Here is the secret: (1) the Word is in the Bride and (2) the mind of Christ (3) to know what He wants done with the Word, and (4) She does it in His Name. (5) She has THUS SAITH THE LORD. Then it is germitized; so the Holy Spirit waters it until it is grown and serves its purpose. (6)They do only His will. (Amen. I'll believe that.) No one can persuade them different. They have THUS SAITH THE LORD, or they keep still. (7) Then they will do the works of God. For it is Himself in them, continuing His Word to fulfill as He did complete in His day. All things when He was here--He did not complete all when He was here, for it was not time yet.

17Now, this morning I would like to break this down into seven facts that Br. Branham is presenting to the Bride of Christ in this hour.

18Notice brother Branham says, “Here is the secret”: Then he begins to lay out seven steps to this secret harmony between God and His first born son, because this is the same harmony that will be between God and the last day sons.  

19(No. 1) the Word is in the Bride: Notice he tells us that the Word is in the Bride, and that is exactly what Jesus prayed for before going to the cross for his brethren.

20John 17:8 For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.

2111And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.

2214I 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.

2322And the glory (the doxa, the opinions, the values, the judgments) 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.

241 John 2:20But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things. 21I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.

252 Thessalonians 1:10When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day. 11Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power: 12That 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.

26Peter prophesied that this Glory, this Word, would come by revelation at the time of the Apokalupsis of our Lord Jesus Christ at His Appearing which is His parousia, or great Presence among us in this hour. 1 Peter 1:13Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;

27The apostle Paul told us that God would descend with a Message which is His word to declare Himself by. 1 Thessalonians 4:13But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. 14For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. 15For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 16For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

281 Corinthians 1:3Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. 4I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ; 5That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge; 6Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you: 7So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ: 8Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord. 10Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

29Now, I hope you caught what the apostle Paul was telling us. He said that the Spirit of Grace would come like fertilizer on a seed, to take us from seed form to fully mature manifested son form, and in the process it would bring us into one mind, which is the Mind of Christ.

30And that brings us to point (No. 2) where brother Branham said, “and She has the mind of Christ”…

31The Apostle Paul told us in Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: So we must ask ourselves how is it possible to have the mind of Christ?

32And in 1 Peter 4:1 we read, Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;”

33And he gives us our answer in 1 Corinthians 2 where the apostle Paul expounds more on having the mind of Christ, and he declares to us how it is possible to have the mind of Christ. and how it can not come without having the same spirit that was in Christ.

341 Corinthians 2: 9But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. 10But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for The Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 11For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but The Spirit of God knows. 12Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but The Spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 13Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teaches; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. 16For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.

35So we see that only way we can have the same mind is if we have the mind of Christ.  And we found Paul teaching us here that the only way we can have the mind that was in Christ is that we have the same Spirit that he had, which is the Spirit of God.

36In Romans 12:16 we are told Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.”

37And in Philippians 1:27 “Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;”

38Ephesians 4:23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;

39Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

40And in Hebrews 8:10 “For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:”

41And again we see in Philippians 2:2 “Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.”

42And Paul tells us why it is necessary that we all have the same mind in Romans 15:6 That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. glorify God… endoxazo God, to manifest or magnify in our flesh the opinions, values, and judgments of God.

43And in 2 Corinthians 13:11 Paul says, 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.

44And in a day when men are losing their minds the Apostle Paul tell us that we shall keep ours through Jesus Christ. Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

45Because it is God who is writing His Word into our hearts, because He promised he would do it. Hebrews 10:16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;”

46In the mean time the greatest battle ever fought is for control of your mind as we see in 2 Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

47And again in 2 Corinthians 11:3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. Now from the deep, deep things, but from the simplicity that is in Christ.

48But we are warned that the mind can be a very vain thing, as the apostle Paul tells us in Ephesians 4:17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, 18Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: 19Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.20But ye have not so learned Christ;

49And finally  we see in 2 Corinthians 3:14 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ.

50So far we see of the first two things brother Branham called the secret of God, he said, Here is the secret: (1) the Word is in the Bride and (2) the mind of Christ.

51Now, then, what good would it do if we have the Word of God, and we have the mind of Christ, if we do not know what to do with the Word that was given to us from our Father who descended from heaven with a Shout which is a message. Remember, Jesus said he gave us the Word God had given Him that we might be one. And what is the purpose of being one if we do not do anything with this oneness?


53So that brings us to point (No. 3) to know what He wants done with the Word,

54Not to know what we want to do with His Word that He gave us, but what He wants for us to do with it. That is exactly what Jesus said in St. John 5;19 and 5:30…

55Let us pray…
