247Now, It cannot be mixed, and It will not hybreed with nothing else. It will not hybreed. Today is a great day of hybreeding animals, corn, wheat, making a better looking product, but it's no good. It's rotten, no life in it: dies, can't reproduce itself. It's dead because everything that we have on earth today in its original form is a spoken Word of God. 48 That's why that a mule, a bastard-born animal with a crossbreeding cannot breed itself back again. God made a horse and He made a donkey. You breed them two together, you got a mule. It's a hybrid; therefore it can't breed itself back. (We're going to hit the serpent's seed after while now.) It can't breed itself back. 9 Now, what's my text? "The Spoken Word is the Original Seed." Now, I want to prove that. Let us turn now over to Matthew 24:35 just a moment and as we search through these Scriptures for a little while and I want to read here a word that Jesus said. Matthew 24 and the 35th verse, show how eternal this Word is, what we've been talking about. “Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heavens and earth shall pass away, but my word shall not pass away.”
3Now, what I wish to focus our thoughts on this morning are Brother Branham’s words where he says, everything that we have on earth today in its original form is a spoken Word of God…. Now, he’s talking about why hybridization does not pass on life, but creates death instead by mixing two living breathing organisms that shouldn’t be mixed, because by mixing them the life can not mix, and thus it is a dead mixture because it can not breed itself again. So you see when he is talking about “everything that we have on earth today in its original form is a spoken Word of God…He is talking about Seed Life.”
4And let’s face it, everything man has put his hands to he has altered the way God made that thing to be. And when he puts his hand to the Word of God he alters that too. Now, the reason I believe he is talking about seed here is because right after he says everything that we have on earth today in its original form is a spoken Word of God… he then says, Now, what's my text? "The Spoken Word is the Original Seed." So the Spoken Word is the original… It’s the first seed that has life in it, and it is the last seed that has life in it. All other seeds are not original and have no life.
5Now, in the Book of Luke 8: 11 Jesus tells us that the word of God is a seed. 11 Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. And in 1 Peter we are told that God’s Word is his Seed and it is an incorruptible seed. Therefore it can not perish. 1 Peter 1: 23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
6And in Matthew 13: 23 Jesus tells us that if this word seed is sown into soil that understands, it will produce what it is meant to produce, because the life in it is sown into an understanding mind. 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.
7But Jesus also tells us that if the Word seed is sown into a mind that can not comprehend or understand, then the seed life is wasted and will not produce anything. Matthew 13: 19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.
8In other words, Jesus Himself said in St. John 6:63 “The Words which I speak unto you, they are spirit and they are Life.” Therefore, the Word as a seed is a carrier of Life. And if they are His Words then they would have to be a carrier of His Life. Because Jesus said, “As a man thinketh in his heart so is he and ot of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.”
10Therefore the Life that is in the Word comes forth from the Father and then into the Son. That is why Jesus said in John 5:19 & 5:30 that he could do nothing until the Father showed Him first what to do.
11John 5:18 Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God. 19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. 20 For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel. 21 For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth [them]; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.
12John 5:30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me. 31 If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true. 32 There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true.
14John 1:1-4In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2The same was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
15Notice the Scripture speaks of Life being with Him and in Him. It tells us that He is the Word. Therefore the Word is a carrier of Life, God Life. Jesus also told us the Word of God is a seed which the sower planted. In Luke 8:11 Jesus said, “The seed that the sower sewed is the Word of God."
16We find this also in 1 Peter 1: 23 Peter speaking of the Word of God as a Seed, an incorruptible Seed which lives and abides forever. He says, “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.” And what Lives and abides forever but Eternal Life.
17Let's also look at 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: 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.
18Here we find that the Word of God is what gives us everything we have need of in this life, even the divine nature which is God's very own nature. That is why Paul told us that while the outer man is perishing, the inner man must be renewed daily. And he also told us in Romans 12:1 that our transformation comes by the renewing of the mind.
19Now, in getting back to what Brother Branham was telling us here, he said, everything that we have on earth today in its original form is a spoken Word of God… he then says, Now, what's my text? "The Spoken Word is the Original Seed." So the Spoken Word is the original… It’s the first seed that has life in it, and it is the last seed that has life in it. All other seeds are not original and have no life.
21Now, I know that some teach that this bible is just a history of the Church. Well, you get what you look for, and therefore it so then it is not life to them. And that is there reward, which is death. It may contain history, but the History that it contains is His Story. And if it is His Story, then it must tell us everything we need to know about Him in order for us to know Him. After all, the Bible tells us, "As a man thinketh in his heart so is He, and out from the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh." Then if that is true, and I believe it is, then the Word of God is the testimony of God or the expression of God’s will to us. It's HIS STORY after all.
22Now, this Bible is the map that He told us to enter into Eternal Life. It is our blueprint, and we all know that a blueprint is a pattern. And just like in building a house, we must have a foundation first, and after all a foundation is the blue print of the shape that you build your building upon. You can not have a rectangle foundation if the house is to be built octagon shape. The house must sit squarely upon its foundation, and therefore whatever shape the foundation is, that is what the house shape of the house will have to be. Therefore a foundation is the basis for any building. And you must follow the foundation in order to build.
23Even Paul said, in I Corinthians 3:10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. 11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
24Therefore if Jesus Christ the Word is our foundation, and our pattern, if Jesus Christ the Word is our blueprint, and our Map, then every thing we live for and expect out of Life must come forth from His Word.
25And remember, the Life of the Father was in the Son so when the son talked the people heard the Father speaking. When the Son acted, it was the Father acting within him. He said, the Father worketh and the Son worketh hitherto.
26His Word then which is the original Seed is our absolute. We just read in 2 Peter 1: 3-4 that everything we have need of in this life comes forth from the Word of God, even the Divine Nature which is God’s Own nature that we so long to receive. His divine power (His Spoken Word, His Original Seed) hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness.
27If God told us in His Own Word that His Divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life, then that means everything. You can not have a truly successful life without having a Christ centered Life. You can not have a close knit family without having a Christ centered family. You can not have a truly lasting marriage without having a Christ centered marriage. And what is a Christ centered marriage? What is a Christ centered family? It is one that is Word-of-God centered. For in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. Only the original Seed has Life in it. All other seeds are hybrid and will die out.
28In the Book of Ecclesiastes 4:9 we read, Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labor. 10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him [that is] alone when he falleth; for [he hath] not another to help him up. 11 Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm [alone]? 12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
29Now, what do you think that three-fold cord is? Because if it just anything, it is not eternal and therefore can not last. And we are told that this third cord is what makes the marriage last and therefore must be an incorruptible cord. It must be an eternal cord.
30Matthew 19:4 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, 5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? 6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. And this is the key right here. Did God put together the marriage or not. Is he that third cord in this relationship? If so it shall last, if not then it will not last. Why do you think America has a 60% divorce rate? What God puts together will last, but what He does not put together is destined to fail. If God put it together it will last, but if He did not then how can you expect it to last. That is why I am very careful who I will marry any more. I will not marry a believer to an unbeliever. God told us not to yoke ourselves together with unbelief. He also said, ”How can two walk together unless they agree.”
31Therefore, unless you marry a believer you are on your own. I've seen too many marriages fall apart because God never put the couple together in the first place. Then you ask, what put those couples together? The answer is LUST. Too many kids just want to hop in the sack and can't wait for the right one to come along. One girl was asked why she was waiting so long for Mr. Right to come along and she said, I would rather be lonely than miserable.
32A pastor one day was walking down the street and he came upon a woman who was very irreligious but whose husband was a true believer and who sought to have a peaceful and closer relationship with his Lord. The Pastor addressed the woman and said, "Madam, I think your husband is looking upwards and he is making quite an effort to rise above the world towards God and heaven. You must not let him try alone. When ever I see a husband struggling alone in such efforts, I picture in my mind a dove that is endeavoring to fly upwards while it has one broken wing. It leaps and flutters, and perhaps it rises a little way; but then it becomes wearied, and drops back again to the ground. But when both wings cooperate, it can easily find its way upward towards the heavens.
33Years ago the reverend Robert Newton celebrated his golden anniversary with his wife and told the people assembled that he and his wife had never had even an unkind word or an unkind look at each other in those 50 years. When he was asked how they could accomplish such a wonderful thing, he replied, From the day we married, we would both retire twice each day to pray for the other and we have kept up this practice for 5o years. You've all heard, I'm sure the old expression, "the family that prays together, stays together." Well, this is true. Now, I don't say that I’ve been the worlds best example for that but this is what I believe and I have tried to practice in my own home. And to my own shame we were very good at this until my daughters got older and started their living own schedules. The scripture tells us as parents not to provoke our children to anger. The scripture in my home is our absolute. As the head of my home I have the final say. But, if I am wrong in what I say or do by the Word of God, and my children or wife point this out to me, I must repent and ask their forgiveness. If my wife is wrong or my children are wrong, I do not tell them they are wrong because my opinion says they are wrong. I show them by the Word if they are wrong, and if I can do this then it is not me but God's Word that has the final say. If we would do al as unto the Lord, then when any of us side steps God's Word, it is the Word which will correct the error. If that third Cord, Christ is in your relationships, your relationships will live on. If it is not, they are doomed to fail.
34If you want a close family, then pray together and talk this word together, and use the Word as your guide and your absolute in running your home. The last thing my children want to hear is for me to tell them to do something and when they ask me why, I tell them, because it's my house that's why, of because I want it that way. We have got to get away from that type of thinking. My children are all adults, and that doesn’t work any longer. But show your family the Word and they easily submit and that is the way our homes ought to be run.
36We must have Christ centered thinking. And if we all have the mind of Christ then we will think alike. Therefore, Children obey your parents for this is the first commandment with a promise, and parents, show them a Christ centered mind in what you do and say.
37Brother Branham said, The Spoken word is the original, and only the original has life. This Bible is our blueprint to a wonderful and prosperous life. This Bible is the map that we are to follow if we are receive His eternal promises. This Bible is the map that He told us to follow to begin Eternal Life. We have within us the power right now, to begin Eternal Life. Just think of that. Eternal Life. That means a life that will live on forever. This life that has made so many mistakes, this life that has known so much unbelief and sin. This physical life that has had so many ups and downs, can be righter if we just walk in the Light as he is in the Light. Walking in the light brings righteousness. Walking in the Light brings newness of Life. Walking in the light leads us into immortality. Then why do we hesitate when we have such a great opportunity before us?
38Hebrews 10:21-26 And having an high priest over the house of God; 22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; for he is faithful that promised; 24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:
