1Deuteronomy 32:2 My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass:

2Job 29:23 And they waited for me as for the rain; and they opened their mouth wide as for the latter rain.

3Deuteronomy 11:14 That I will give you the rain of your land in his due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil.

4This morning as we are getting much closer to the end of this sermon of Brother Branham’s and thus the end of this series, I would like to continue in our study of Brother Branham’s sermon, The Spoken Word is the Original Seedand let’s go to paragraph 193 where Brother Branham says, As the end time prophecies will repeat, I believe, as the first forerunner came from the wilderness and cried, "Behold the Lamb of God," the second forerunner will probably do the same by pointing the people to a Word born Bride. The Bride of Christ will be pointed to the skies at the appearing of Jesus, screaming, "Behold the Lamb of God," will come forth from his lips. God help us to be ready for this near event.

5194 Now, I better leave it from right here. Do you believe? Why has this been? Have you a better understanding now? It's the Word, friends. This has been about six hours (right close to it), five and a half or six hours. There's much more could be said, but surely the Holy Spirit by this time has sunk it so deep in you, that you know what I'm talking about. We are at the end time. The seeds are sowed now; the latter rain is fixing to come forth. Remember, there will be such a denominational gathering pretty soon; it'll be terrific. And they will bring themselves together into this federation of churches, and then this kind of a church will be put out of operation (as far as they know). It's at that time that Jesus will appear, and He will show which is Bride and which is not.

6Notice here that brother Branham speaks of the former rain and the latter rain. Well, he says the seeds been sown, that’s what takes place in the former rain, because he former rain is the teaching rain.

7JEHOVAH JIREH PT 1 62-0705 54 We've had a revival. Joel said... We fuss so much about latter rain, had movements called latter rain; latter rain, former rain, inner rain, outer rain. I was reading the other day. Do you know what former rain means in the Hebrew word? I can't call it right now; I never wrote it down; it skipped my mind. But "former rain," the first rain, means "a rain of teaching." The second rain is the Spirit that comes upon what's been taught and produces the crop.

8 So you see the two rains are very essential in the end-time events. The former rain is the teaching rain, and remember God said his Rain is His Doctrine.

9Deuteronomy 32:1Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth. 2My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass:

10End Time Seed Sign 62-0319 63 They've been talking so much about latter rain. Not discarding you latter rain brethren, but that's not latter rain. If the latter rain would've been here, the power of God would've struck that thing, and she'd have swept the world. The latter rain's fixing to come. What's the matter? The church is manufacturing herself something just like Eve tried to do. She tried to have more light to manufacture something. We've done the same thing, trying to make something in ourselves. Keep your hand off of it. Let God do it. Take His Word and believe It. Hold It in your heart. And when the rain begins to fall life will take hold, and the Word will manifest itself.

11And that is the problem we have in studying these two rains, because as soon as you mention the latter rain, automatically because of all the fanaticism that took place when that group of Pentecostals tried to bring on the latter rain, and they tried to emulate William Branham in the gifts because they didn’t understand the Word of God for the day they lived. They thought the latter rain would be supernatural feats like jumping over buildings and things. That’s not latter rain, that’s Hollywood Chinese movies. When the seed is sown, the rain rains waters that seed, and when it comes up into manifestation ready for harvest there is another rain that get’s it ready for the harvest. And that as brother Branham says will be a move of the Spirit that will water that crop and make it ready for the harvest. A husbandman is one whose occupation is husbandry which the act or practice of cultivating crops and breeding and raising livestock; agriculture. And we are told in Scripture when to be expecting this husbandman

12James 5:7 Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming (Parousia) of the Lord. Behold, The husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until He receive the early and latter rain. Notice the husbandman, or The Son of Man that went forth sowing is also the same one who does the tilling and weeding.

13Romans 4:21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.  So we see then it will be a work of the Holy Spirit that will perform this thing in you. 

14Philippians 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:

15Philippians 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.  But brother Branham said that they which expect it are the ones who receive the promise.

16Leading of the sprit 55-0807E P:21 Expectations: If you're expecting it, you will receive it. You usually get what you expect to get. If you come to the meeting tonight, expecting to find something to criticize the meeting, the devil will show you. He will see that you get satisfied. You get what you expect. If you come to get a blessing, God will see that you get it. If you come to get saved, God will see you get it. If you come to get healed, be expecting to get healed. God will see that you do it. It's what ever you expect Him.

17So you see in this last days we expect there to be an elect group of adoptable sons and daughters of God because God said in his word there would be. Ephesians 1, Romans 8 Galatians 4 etc. And if you are expecting it then you will get what you expect. It’s not that any of us can in our own selves become what we are not ordained to become. And in fact the Apostle Paul said, “when I would to do good why is it that evil is present with me?

18Romans 7:14For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. 15For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. 16If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good.17Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 18For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. 19For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. 20Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 21I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. 22For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: 23But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. 24O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?  25I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.

19Martin Luther in His Preface to the Book of Romans said, "God judges according to what is at the bottom of the heart, and for this reason, His law makes its demands on the inmost heart and cannot be satisfied with works, but rather punishes works that are done otherwise than from the bottom of the heart, as hypocrisy and lies. … "The law is spiritual," For if the law were made for the body, it could be satisfied with works; but since it is spiritual, no one can satisfy it, unless all that you do is done from the bottom of the heart. But such a heart is given only by God's Spirit, who makes a man equal to the law, so that he acquires a desire for the law in his heart, and henceforth does nothing out of fear and compulsion, but everything out of a willing heart. That law then is spiritual which will be loved and fulfilled with such a spiritual heart, and requires such a spirit. Where that spirit is not in the heart, there sin remains, and displeasure with the law, and enmity toward it, though the law is good and jut and holy.

20And that is why Paul taught us that we could never even understand the things of God unless the Spirit of God is in us.  1 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. 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.

21Now, in getting back to James 5 James 5:7 Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming (parousia) of the Lord. Behold, The husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until He receive the early and latter rain.  

22Notice The One who comes as Judge and stands at the door knocking is also called the husbandmen. That’s the guy who prunes back the plant to help it with producing a better fruit crop. And it says at the time of the Parousia of Christ he will have long patience to wait for the fruits of the earth that will be produced by the former rain (the teaching rain) and the latter rain which is the harvest rain coming together at the same season.

23Now, never forget that in Deuteronomy 32:1 the rain God sends is His doctrine. So there is to be fruit from the teaching rain and that fruit is to be watered by another move of the spirit to produce the fruit which move of the spirit is called the latter rain. And since the rain is the doctrine of God, or the doctrine of Christ as the Scriptures call it, then it will be the Word taught or sowed that comes forth in maturity and manifestation. And at the time that it is to come forth to manifest God will water it once more to help it along. But it is not two different doctrines a former doctrine and a latter doctrine, for rain is rain. H2O is not different from one rain to the next, it is the same H2O.

24And the doctrine taught and sowed is the former RAIN, and the doctrine that waters is the latter Rain. And remember, Jesus said My Words are Spirit and truth. So the Word or Spirit waters the seed bringing it to maturity. And since that is the role of the five fold to bring the seed children to maturity, then the ministration of the Spirit is slightly different from the One who sowed it to begin with. For the Son of Man came forth sowing so we see God in the role of a prophet brought forth the first rain, to sow the Word. But the second sweep of the Spirit or rain comes via the Five-Fold ministry because it is their role to bring the church to maturity which is ready for harvest.

25Zechariah 10:1 Ask ye of the LORD rain (that’s doctrine) in the time of the latter rain; so the LORD shall make bright clouds, and give them showers of rain, to every one grass in the field.

26As brother Branham taught us in the Seven Church Age book, he said in the 380-1 RESUME OF THE AGES - God isn't going to plant a new Church, but is going to bring His original planting back to original seed. He is doing it as stated in verse 23, by the teaching, or "former" rain. Next will come the harvest rain or rapturing faith.

27This is also what we see in Joel 2:23 Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and He will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.

28And in his sermon, FUTURE HOME 64-0802 52-3 brother Branham speaks of the  the daughter of Zion,... and then he says, (Remember that's always the Bride. See?)

29So Joel is speaking of the children of Zion or Bride Children that will come to maturity at the time of the harvest rain which according to the Apostle Paul will be the role of the Five Fold ministry in the way they bring the Word (the Spirit) that will water the seed that was sown in the former rain. The teaching rain. 

30Ephesians 4:11And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12For the perfecting of the saints,(the finishing off or equipping of the saints which means the maturing of the saints) for the work of the ministry, for the edifying (or building up) of the body of Christ: 13Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, (a mature man) unto the measure (the metron, the limited portion) of the stature (maturity) of the fulfilling of Christ:  14That we henceforth be no more children, (you see, it’s all about coming to maturity) so that we be not tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:  

31So this role of the five fold under the direction and leadership of the Holy Spirit is to bring the Doctrine, the rain to the people in such a way that they will come to maturity and limited portion of the stature of Christ. 

32Jeremiah 3:3 Therefore the showers have been withholden, and there hath been no latter rain; and thou hadst a whore's forehead, thou refusedst to be ashamed. So you see during the church ages when the church went to whoring and denominated itself, the rain, the latter rain was withheld.

33Proverbs 16:15 In the light of the king's countenance is life; and his favor is as a cloud of the latter rain.  God’s favor, His delight, His pleasure is as a cloud or witness to the latter rain. That is why he would not have us to be children any longer. He wants us to grow up.  

34In Ephesians 1:5 Paul said, Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, so that is the same thing as we see in the Proverbs that we just read.

35Now, it is interesting to note that in this sermon The Spoken Word is the original Seed, brother Branham speaks quite a few times about the latter rain in connection with the Predestined Seed of God growing up.

36From P:186 he says,  Then in the latter rain there will come forth a Mount Carmel, a showdown: Bible fulfilled to the letter. John the Baptist, His messenger before His face in Malachi 3, planted a former rain and was rejected by the churches, the denominations, the Pharisees and Sadducees in his day. Jesus came and had the Mount Transfiguration showdown. This forerunner of the last days will sow for the former rain. Jesus will be the showdown between denominations and creeds (which is His Word). When He comes, the showdown, the rapture of His Bride... The first was Mount Carmel; the second was Mount Transfiguration; the third will be Mount Zion. Glory.

37Spoken word original seed 62-0318E P:6 Someone asked me to repeat that Hebrew word again. In Joel the 2nd chapter (Joel 2:28) where he's speaking of the coming of the former and latter rain, the word "former" is the Hebrew word M-o-u-r-e-h, moureh, which means "teaching." In other words, it'll be a teaching rain and a harvest rain. Now, we've had the teaching rain, and we're ready now for the harvest rain. (Notice same doctrine, but for different purposes. One plants the seed, the other matures the seed. Then he gores on to say,…) You know the first rain is when you plant the seed. That starts your crop growing. Then just before it matures, there comes another crop. That's what they call the harvest rain. We know when it is the spring rains, and then the rains about June, it makes your crop.

38And again from Spoken word original seed 62-0318M P:177 Gracious heavenly Father, we're not trying to bring the meeting to a close but just a halt for a little rest for a few moments. And now, may these seeds that's been sown this morning, may they have fallen upon good fertile ground. May they bring forth abundance, Lord, abundance of Eternal Life. Now, we pray, Father, that these seeds that's sown will be laying waiting for the latter rain to fall. Waiting... They that wait upon the Lord, they shall renew their strength. God, may we not run ahead of the Word; stay with the Word. Grant it, Lord. Bless us now, and those who go off to eat, I pray that You'll give them their lunches, and--and bless their food, and give them strength, and bring them back this afternoon real early. Lord, may they be setting in the temple here waiting. And may You help me as I go to pray and come back. I pray that You'll a-freshly anoint me this afternoon. Grant it, Lord, that I might bring what I believe to be Your Word to the people. Grant it, Father.

39And again  Spoken word original seed 62-0318M P:179 Father, may the people see it and be obedient to water baptism for the remission of their sins. And may these few words for baptism fall deeply now in the heart of everyone, for we don't know how much longer we have, Father. It's getting very close. The enemy, as we expect to speak on this afternoon, is growing deeper, more bolder all the time. Since they've took the throne; they're moving right on in. Lord, we see it on every hand. Not Communism, Lord, may the people be able to understand that it's Romanism, the old mother whore and her harlots; and we see them, Lord, coming an image unto the beast and here we are. Father God, be merciful now, and let us all get into the safety, into the ark and be ready for the latter rain. We ask it in Jesus' Name. Amen.

40Spoken word original seed 62-0318M P:163 Now, what they're trying to do, they're trying to manufacture a latter rain. Nonsense. Why, that latter rain will sweep the world, brother. And then a former rain sowing Word... That's right. Now, you'll see what the latter rain produces. You'll find out there'll be an affiliation. The Pentecostals and all the groups will come together, and they'll shut the doors on them guys that won't listen to it; and you won't even be allowed to open your mouth. That's right. That's when He will come. That's when He will show. That's when you'll see a rain. Oh, my, lay still; be quiet; let it go. See? And I believe that is what we are seeing now, all over the world, the rain of God bringing the church to a maturity by laying in the presence of the knowledge of the Son of God to ripen as Paul said was essential for this maturity to take place in Ephesians 4.

41Spoken word original seed 62-0318M P:145 Moureh, moureh, the rain, former rain, planting rain, has went forth. Now, what had happened? The former rain was being planted. The latter rain fell. What happened? Sodom and its Sodomites burned. Abraham received the promised son. Jesus said, "Let them grow together. The tares shall be bound, bundled, and burned. The garner... The wheat will go to the garner." See? The latter rain's just at hand. We're going to get... I don't want to wait too long on that, 'cause I got something real good back here on that; I know. See?

42Spoken word original seed 62-0318M P:140 The latter rain is fixing to fall. You've hold that seed in there long enough now, on believing, and you're looking for a coming son, and he's coming." Amen. That's the real church today (See?), that elected Seed. "You've been looking for him, and I'm going to send him to you." What said that? The Word.

43Spoken word original seed 62-0318M P:134 Now, watch. Now, remember the word "m-o-u-r-e-h, moureh," means "teaching, the former rain." It says "the moureh rain, the teaching rain," teaching rain went forth. Billy Graham has struck the world. The Pentecostals struck the world, and the Word has struck the world. Now, what's the matter now? She's now waiting for the latter rain. That's when she produces her fruits. Oh, I hope you get it. P:135 Then the kind of seed you have planted in your field will be the kind of crop you will reap. If the denominations wants more members, that's what they're going to get. That's what they have gotten. The Pentecostals wants more Pentecostals; that's what they're going to get. That's right. But the Word's going to produce sons and daughters of God. Uh-huh, uh-huh. That's coming too. Watch, look at that great latter rain supposed to be done, how they would run over the wall, and leap over, and how they'd be an army coming. Just wait a minute. Uh-huh. The kind of crop you'll get is the kind of seed you put in your field.

44Spoken word original seed 62-0318M P:131 Now, we're hearing so much, and so many organizations and everything else talk about we're in the latter rain. Nonsense. No such a thing. Notice, he says as they are looking for it, to be all full of super duper supernatural feats and all, he says that is nonsense. The seed you plant is the seed that you will reap. So the teaching or planting rain places a certain type of seed in the earth, and it will be sons and daughters of God, and so then when the latter rain comes it will help produce those fully mature sons and daughters of God.

45Spoken word original seed 62-0318M P:90 What is it? Same seed. How can you plant wheat here and wheat here and say, "I'm going to get cucumbers here and wheat here?" You can't do it. The only way you're going to get cucumbers is plant cucumbers. If you hybreed it, then it won't be a cucumber. It'll be a hypocrite. Is that right? It'll be a hypocrite, friends. This... You've got to say it. It isn't neither one. Isn't cucumber or what you bred it with. It's a crossbreed, and it is a bad product, and it's dead in itself, and it can't breed itself back no more. It's dead right there--back, won't go no farther. That finishes it; that's all. But if you want a cucumber, start with a cucumber. If you want a church, start with the Word of God. If you want a Life of God, start with the Word of God. Accept the Word of God in Its fullness, every measure of It. And then that's... And if that is the fullness of God in you, then the rain that's falling will produce exactly what's in your garden. See? Then now, where's your Latter Rain coming up at? You see where that's going after while, don't you? Going over with them wild gourds that Elijah got and thought they were gourds or that--them school of prophets up there, that denomination they had: gathered some wild gourds and thought they were--they were peas. Oh, well.

46So you see, brother Branham is again emphasizing that the seed planted in the moureh or teaching rain is the same seed that will rise up in the harvest rain, but being it is a harvest rain that means the plant will have come to maturity and ready for harvest.

47In closing let me read a closing prayer from Brother Branham’s sermon Uncertain sound 55-0731 P:81 Thou art here today. You're here, for the closing hour, for even greater blessings, "for the former and latter rain should come together." And now, Father, if there be any uncertainty in any person's experience in this room; I pray, Father, at this hour, they'll confine their faith, not to their mental way of thinking, not to reasoning after men's doctrine, but to the believing of God's Word to Everlasting Life. These blessings we ask in Jesus' Name, Thy Son.

48And what we see by the teaching rain and harvest rain coming together is that the Word and the Word expressed or manifested is the same thing.

49In closing let me read from John 14:20At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you. 21He 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.

50And let me read also from John 17:21That 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 (and the values you have given me, and the opinions you have given me, and the judgments you have given 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.

51SHOW US THE FATHER IT'LL SATISFY 56-0422 36 Now, it's many times it's been said that no man can see God at anytime, the Bible said so. But the only begotten of the Father has declared Him. Philip, here was very inquisitive; he wanted to see the Father. Says here He said, "I've been so long with you, Philip, and you don't know Me?" Said, "When you see Me you see My Father." In other words, you see the Father express Hisself through the Son. Him and the Father were one in the sense that His Father was dwelling in Him, not Him doing the works; He was a Son, Himself, the immortal, virgin born, Son of God. And then in Him was dwelling the God, the Father, expressing Hisself to the world, His attitude towards the people. See? Well, that's how Christ and God were one. God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself. Now, He said, "When you see Me, you see the Father, and why do you say, 'Show us the Father?'"

52Again in the sermon, HE SWORE BY HIMSELF 54-1212 He said, "I and My Father are One. My Father is in Me." Said, "Show us now the Father." Philip said, "Showeth me the Father and it'll satisfy me." Said, "Philip, I been so long with you, and you don't know Me?" He said, "When you see Me, you see the Father. And why say, 'Show me the Father.' I and the Father are One. My Father's living in Me now. It's not Me that doeth the works; it's Him that dwells in me, that does the works." Oh, my. How could I tell a man what was wrong with him? How could I tell him what his future will be ten years, or what he was forty years ago? It isn't me. Hallelujah. It's Him that lives in me, that come down, that through His Blood brought me in fellowship with Him. Hallelujah. How could my hands do anything by healing the sick? It hasn't got a bit of power. It's not me. But it's Him that dwells in here that does it.

53CONFERENCE 60-1125 73 When He said, "It's not Me that doeth the works. It's My Father. He dwelleth in Me. Me and My Father are One. I and My Father are One. My Father dwelleth in Me." And He did the same works that He did when He dwelt in that Body standing there before Abraham.

54AS I WAS WITH MOSES 51-0503 15 When Jesus of Nazareth ... I believe that the Father was in Him, that all the great things that was the Father's was given unto His Son, all the great blessings and gifts; for He was just expressed image of the Father. And in Him dwelled all the richness of God dwelling in Him here, looking up. And I... He said, "I and My Father are One. My Father dwelleth in Me." Just as Jehovah... Just what Jehovah was, Jesus was. He was the expressed image of Him. He was God shaped out here, and all the powers of God formed into, and put in a human body. He said, "It's not Me that doeth the works; it's My Father that dwelleth in Me; He doeth the works."

55GIFTS 56-1207 29 Now, in Christ dwelt the Fullness of the Godhead bodily. He had all the Spirit of God in Him. "I and My Father are One," said Jesus. That's the reason the people couldn't understand Him. Sometimes He'd say something, might look like He turn around and say something different. It was Him speaking, then the Father speaking. See? They were... And even the disciples could not understand Him. And right at the last, they said, "Lo, now speakest Thou plainly. Now, we believe by this if you know all things; no man needs to teach you." Jesus said, "Do you now believe?" After all that time, they couldn't get the... Why? That sometimes He'd say this and then say that. It was Him and the Father speaking.  30 Now, notice closely. Now, God dwelling in Christ used His voice to speak by. Jesus said in His miracle, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, the Son can do nothing in Himself, but what He sees the Father doing, that doeth the Son likewise." Is that right? Saint John 5:19. Then He did not do nothing within Himself. No prophet ever did anything within himself, until first God showed what to do. What a mistake Moses made when he went out without the vision of God and smote down the Egyptian, thought he'd liberate them with his hands, because he thought he had a lot of faith and could do it, because he was called for the job. No matter how much you're called for the job, God has to do the leading. See? He failed of all of his schooling and his military mind and his training as a great Egyptian leader. But yet it failed, 'cause God had a program and we've got to work according to God's program. No matter what we do, how smart we are, we've got to humble ourselves and work according to God's program. Amen. So he failed and God had to keep him another forty years to educate him. So what it was, that he must forget himself, and it's not him, but it was God.

56SUPER SIGN 59-1227M 86 When He was here on the earth, He proved that He was God, proved that God was in Him, because the signs of God followed Him. He said, "If I do not the works of My Father, then believe Me not. But if I do the works of My Father, if you don't believe Me, believe the works, the sign": Immanuel. "I and My Father are One. My Father has sent Me. And as He sends Me, so send I you. The Father that sent Me is with Me; He's in Me and doing the works of Himself. It's God in flesh."

57SHOW US THE FATHER AND IT WILL SATISFY 60-0731 15 "The works that I do, shall you also." And seeing the same results by human beings so submitted to God, until the Holy Spirit can work through those human beings just like the Holy Spirit worked through Jesus, Who just has confessed that, "I and My Father are One. My Father dwelleth in Me. He doeth the works. It's not My words; it's His words."... See? He was so submitted to God.

58Spoken word original seed 62-0318M P:96 I'm a Branham because I was born of Charlie and Ella Branham. That makes me a Branham because I'm their seed. Their two agreements with their sperm together made a seed, and that made me. 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 what? you are dead; you're not yourself no more. You reckon yourself dead, hollowed out, waiting for the Seed germ. 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. He can't be a hybrid and a son at the same time. He's either a son of death or a son of Life. So if he's a son of death, give it over to the devil and let him kill it. Give over to God a minute and let Him kill the devil that's in you--run him out: hollows you out. 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. You see it? I'd just love to preach on that a few minutes, but with thirty or forty pages of Scripture here... And I've only got three so far.

59Spoken word original seed 62-0318M P: 90 What is it? Same seed. Can't keep... How can you plant wheat here and wheat here and say, "I'm going to get cucumbers here and wheat here?" You can't do it. The only way you're going to get cucumbers is plant cucumbers. If you hybreed it, then it won't be a cucumber. It'll be a hypocrite. Is that right? It'll be a hypocrite, friends. This... You've got to say it. It isn't neither one. Isn't cucumber or what you bred it with. It's a crossbreed, and it is a bad product, and it's dead in itself, and it can't breed itself back no more. It's dead right there--back, won't go no farther. That finishes it; that's all. But if you want a cucumber, start with a cucumber. If you want a church, start with the Word of God. If you want a Life of God, start with the Word of God. Accept the Word of God in Its fullness, every measure of It. And then that's... And if that is the fullness of God in you, then the rain that's falling will produce exactly what's in your garden. See? Then now, where's your Latter Rain coming up at? You see where that's going after while, don't you? Going over with them wild gourds that Elijah got and thought they were gourds or that--them school of prophets up there, that denomination they had: gathered some wild gourds and thought they were--they were peas. Oh, well. 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.”                                                                                 Let us pray…
