1This evening we will again speak from the same paragraph 47 of brother Branham’s sermon, [b]The Spoken Word is the Original Seed, that we spoke from on Sunday.

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.

3Now, last Sunday we focused our thoughts on the last part of this paragraph where he said, everything that we have on earth today in its original form is a spoken Word of God….and we looked at Seed Life and the original form showing the original life. But tonight I wish to focus our thoughts on this issue of hybridization that he is mentioning here. So let me read once more this paragraph to you so we can focus on down these thoughts.

447Now, 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.

5Now, this evening I would like to focus our thoughts on this subject because this is a Wednesday night, and we can let our hair down so to speak. I also wish to speak in this because this is the progression of where brother Branham’s mind was as he was developing this sermon, and finally I think the subject needs to be spoken about because there is somewhat of a contention or controversial issue going on among some in this message concerning what we should or should not eat. This sermon is not about what side of the issue we should take. This sermon is to show you that this issue is a distraction to the plan of God and is being used by the devil to get the people’s focus off the doctrine of Christ and onto other more earthly or fleshly issues.

6Now, brother Branham rips into hybridization here because when the two life forms mix, or two seeds mix, the offspring are not genetically capable of reproducing the same life as in the original. In other words, the general trait of hybridization is that there are no further generations of offspring.  Therefore the dangers we see is that because there is not real life in the hybrid offspring, then there is no real nutritional value as well. All it is, is a whole lot of puff with very little substance.

7Now, notice he says, 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.

8Now, where the controversy has risen in this message is that there are some who teach we should not eat any meat and yet they say nothing about all the other hybrid things that produce death. Therefore,  some will not eat any meat while others will eat some meats, and still others will eat no meat and they look down on those who do not.

9The argument stems from several quotes but especially from one in particular.

10From brother Branham’s sermon, He cares do you care? 63-0721 P: 61he gave a warning to the people about the condition of life in the food chain. He said, “Now, what has science brought to us? Now, you may be shocked just for a moment. Science has brought to us sickness, death, and diseases. Now, you're only been taught one side of the picture. But there's two sides to it. You say, "Science has invented this, that, and the other." Well, we're going to grant you that privilege. But let's look at the other side. Science has brought us sickness. Science has brought us diseases, death. Look. Scientific hybreeding has brought death to the generation of foods and things. It's got the people so soft and so, until the men and women are made up out of a bunch of muck, and there's no structure in it. It's become a bunch of soft jellyfish. They can't live without an air conditioner; they perish. They can't play a baseball game. If one of them gets tapped somewhere, it kills him in the boxing rings and what more. And it's so soft till men and women, well, it's perverting them. 62  And they're injecting this hybrid into cattle which has come back into mankind now, according to science themselves, and is making perversions out of them. Because when a cow is hybrid, or any food is hybrid, that food makes blood cell, and blood cell is your life. See what it's done? And then, into meat, they inject these here injections into the meat, and now it's proved that these injections take effect upon the human race. Scientific...They spray the fields with this DDT, I seen the other day, and now we got eight hundred sick people in this community from eating eggs. Do you remember years ago when I first, when we had the little bitty structure here, and I was prophesying, and said, "It shall come to pass in the last days, don't live in a valley and don't eat eggs." I've got it on my book. I thought there was something about that, and I went and looked at it. "Don't eat eggs." That was way back in 1933. Eggs has got something in them now, and I see where science says that a man over fifty years old should never eat an egg, because it's the hardest thing on a heart that can be eaten. Diseases... 63 Milk, it used to be our most balanced diet was milk. The doctors will tell you, "Stay away from it." It's making sinus and everything else. It's the same human being that used to drink it and live for years and never know sinus, but the interbreeding and so forth has broke down the structure of the human being till it's nothing but a bunch of muck, a ball of sickness. What done it? Science. Look. It's caused the genes between the--the man and the woman to weaken, the physical weakness of the human being through the genes, and the increase of spastic children is around thirty percent. Mongolian is on the great climb. And these weakness of interbreeding of the foods that we are eating for life, is weakening the body, which causes cancer, mental troubles, and all kinds of diseases is setting in upon the human body because its weakness. Scientific, destroying themselves, getting away from God's plan... He said, "Let every seed bring forth of its kind." See where we're at? I could go on and on; our time's getting away. But notice, what's that's doing it?

11Science has brought death, sickness, and destruction. 64 And I seen the other day, I was talking to my good friend, Doctor Vayle setting here, that where there's a article that people getting killed by penicillin. It really isn't the penicillin; it's the filth that they let get into it when they're manufacturing the penicillin. It's a money-making, greed scheme. Doctors giving it sometime who don't even know the formula of an aspirin, and their father sends them away to get a specialist in something another, and don't know even how to cure a tummy-ache for a kid. But what have we got? Greed, some pull, or a little something. They don't have hardly anymore of the old fashion country doctor that used to get down and talk to you and console you and do everything. They leave God right out of the picture, because they went after their own way. In order to get God out of the picture, they explained Him plumb away. There we are.65 That's what we've done by interbreeding. You see, the body... What makes a healthy plant, a germ can hardly get to it. It's these hotbed plants, these hybrid plants you have to keep sprayed all the time. And many of you has read my message on "Hybrid Religion," keep it sprayed and babied and so forth. Notice, but the real genuine plant don't have to be sprayed; he's the original. 66 What makes disease come to the human body? Is the body... As I'm told by a precious doctor friend of mine, that I wouldn't want to call his name right now, but he's a very fine brother, reading to me recently out of a medical journal, a book in his office where he keeps all these fine books and the latest stuff on medicine. It is weakness. You notice anybody that's real... You say your body's run down, you take a cold right quick. What is it? It's the weakness of your body that produces a mucus out of your glands. And in that the cold germ beds itself and you got a cold. But if that body was strong, it would throw away that cold germ; it couldn't touch it. So, you see, when God constructed a man in the first place, he was immune from any disease. See? But unbelief and science... Science and education was the first thing that took a man away from God, and it's still taking him.

12Now, some read this as though brother Branham is warning the people not to eat meat, but I no not believe that eating or not eating meat is what brother Branham is focusing on here at all. Yes, Br. Branham does tell us of the dangers that all this hybridization of foods is doing to the human race, but he never tells us not to eat it. What he is telling us here is that every time man thinks he can improve on the way God does something it only ends up in death and destruction.

13This is not the Holy Spirit warning the church to not eat any certain foods. This is a prophet showing us what the original is verse what man has done to it.

14From his sermon Questions and answers COD 64-0830E 427 P:108 we read,  “Brother Branham, when you prophesy about: won't eat eggs, don't live in the valley, was that prophecy just for you or for the congregation? All right. Years ago, about thirty years ago, I gave a prophecy that it would come to pass that in the last days that there would be diseases amongst animals, amongst cattle, and even to eggs. And it come to pass, that there'd be eggs that wouldn't be fit to eat. Also, it would come to pass that people living in valleys... Now remember, I prophesied that way back thirty years ago, that it would come to pass, that people living in valleys, that I'd ask the Christians to move from valleys, and that they're not to eat... Different meats and things like that, would be poison. It'd be dangerous (I believe the way I had it) for people to live in valleys. Now, that was before they had fall-out or knowed anything about fall-out. But that was the Holy Spirit warning me. And right now, even to our cattle (You see them off the markets,) being sprayed by DDT has set up something in the cow.

15109 Notice again, all this hybreeding stuff and things that they're doing is absolutely decaying the human race. "Thirty percent"-twenty or thirty percent," "Reader's Digest" said, "of the patients in the hospital is put in there because of the doctors." They'll give you a medicine to knock this out of you, and it sets up something else over here. And did you notice eggs? Last year hundreds of cases in Louisville and Jeffersonville fell sick and was hospitalized from vomiting from eating eggs that the chicken in the valley here... The eggs out of the valley picked up fall-out and poison in weeds, and so forth; everything is contaminated.

16110 But here's where you get it, my brother. I believe with all my heart that it's written in the Scripture that “no food should be received without it be received with thanksgiving, for it's sanctified by the Word of God and prayer. See? If you eat it, say, "Lord Jesus, You prepared the food for me. Now, with faith I sanctify this food to the strength of our bodies." Then eat it, for in all we do is by faith.

17So what we see is that although the warning was given by the Holy Spirit that these diseases and hybridization processes would be here in these last days, yet, it will be so wide scale that it will affect everything you eat, and even the medicines you take. So then brother Branham says, 110 But here's where you get it, my brother. I believe with all my heart that it's written in the Scripture that “no food should be received without it be received with thanksgiving, for it's sanctified by the Word of God and prayer. See? If you eat it, say, "Lord Jesus, You prepared the food for me. Now, with faith I sanctify this food to the strength of our bodies." Then eat it, for in all we do is by faith[/i].

18Now, I want you to notice that he says we should eat it, but just make sure that you pray over it. If we are to avoid everything he mentions in these and many others quotes on the subjects, we could not eat meat, eggs, fish, corn, wheat, and other vegetables due to the fall out, nor should we drink milk, or even water because of all the stuff the put into it.

19Wisdom verses faith 62-0401 P:77 The earth itself is a womb. Where did God place His seeds? Where's seeds put? In a womb. God puts seeds... And what does man do? Like devils in a womb. He'll make a child deformed if he can; that's what devils has done on the earth, hybreeding, making creatures that's not so. I'd better leave off of that; I'll never get to the rest of this here I got wrote down. You know what I mean. That's the reason it is a deformed creation about to be cast; God's finished with it. The world's all out of order; everything's wrong. The streams are polluted; the air's polluted--filth, stink.

20So even the air we breathe is causing people to suffer with cancer and emphysema and all these other bronchial and respiratory conditions. And what is it? It’s Satan’s Eden, and it shows us that all life is just getting ready for the burning. Now, we all know that Alpha must repeat in Omega. So what took place in the Alpha must take place in the Omega.

21From the Masterpiece64-0705 P:98 brother Branham said, All true Life that was in the stalk, tassel, and husk is now gathering in the Seed, ready for the resurrection, ready for the harvest. The Alpha has become Omega. The first become last; and the last is the first. The Seed that went in has come through a process and become the Seed again.

22Therefore if we see something pop its head up in the church as a problem in the Alpha then we know it must again repeat itself in the omega. Then if we want to know how to deal with it in our day we must look back at how the Apostle Paul dealt with it in his day.

23So let’s turn in our bibles to Romans chapter 14 and I will read this for you from the New International Version, because the wording is just so good and appropriate for this hour.

24Romans 14:1 Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters. So The Apostle Paul is telling us here that he is going to speak on how to handle such matters of disputation.

252 One man's faith allows him to eat everything, but another man, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables.

26Now, this is where we are at today. One says only vegetables, and the other says anything goes. And the problem is that both sides of this issue are passionate about what they believe. But notice where Paul takes this argument. He does not take sides with one or the other, but rather he cautions the believers to be careful how they handle their own personal feelings on these issues.

27So he says, 3 The man who eats everything must not look down on him who does not, and the man who does not eat everything must not condemn the man who does, for God has accepted him.

28So we have two opposing views on the subject of eating meat in the early church. But Paul’s warning is not that they should eat or not eat. His warning is what are you doing with what you believe, and how is it affecting the operation of the Holy Spirit in your midst. Now, remember the Holy Spirit came down as a Dove and would only come down upon a lamb’s nature, because the dove and the lamb have the same nature. So this is where Paul takes this issue and really any other issue that would separate the church.

29Years ago in 1979 brother Vayle told me about a Baptist church that split because one part said you must eat only honey and no sugar at all. The others said no, sugar is ok, so the church ended up splitting over such a simple issue. And if the devil can get a church to split over that it shows they have already left The Faith.  Now, when an issue can affect a group of people like that it shows they are not focused on the doctrine and have deviated from the Truth.

30Notice what Paul says here to those who are judging and condemning or those who are looking down their nose on the others. 4 Who are you to judge someone else's servant? To his own master he stands or falls. And he will stand, for the Lord is able to make him stand. 5 One man considers one day more sacred than another; another man considers every day alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind. And that is just it. You must be fully convinced in your own mind.

316 He who regards one day as special, does so to the Lord. He who eats meat, eats to the Lord, for he gives thanks to God; and he who abstains, does so to the Lord and gives thanks to God. 7 For none of us lives to himself alone and none of us dies to himself alone. 8 If we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. 9 For this very reason, Christ died and returned to life so that he might be the Lord of both the dead and the living.

32You see the church had left Christ out of the picture all together and had left their first love. That is the admonition to the Church of the Ephesians or the Ephesian Church Age. They had left their first love which is the Doctrine of Christ.  That is what Ephesus means. Relaxed and drifting, and so they left their first Love, the Revelation of Jesus Christ and went to humanistic issues such as meat or no meat.

33Then Paul said, 10 You, then, why do you judge your brother? Or why do you look down on your brother? For we will all stand before God's judgment seat. 11 It is written: 'As surely as I live,' says the Lord,'every knee will bow before me; every tongue will confess to God.' 12 So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God.

34You see, Paul is saying, Look people, get focused and quit looking down on each other and being so judgmental with each other. Just make sure your motives are right and all will work out in the long run. Nothing can separate you from the Love of Christ. And All things shall work together for those that Love God and are the called according to His Purpose.

35 

36Then he says, 13 Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in your brother's way. 14 As one who is in the Lord Jesus, I am fully convinced that no food is unclean in itself. But if anyone regards something as unclean, then for him it is unclean. 15 If your brother is distressed because of what you eat, you are no longer acting in love. Do not by your eating destroy your brother for whom Christ died. 16 Do not allow what you consider good to be spoken of as evil.

37So it all comes down to Love doesn’t it? If I do something that is hard for my brothers and sisters to understand why I would do it then I will not do it at least in their presence. Years ago I had to face this issue first hand when I attended a church where the people were very young and spiritually babies because they were not being fed the doctrine of Christ. I wore clogs because I liked the way they felt on my feet. One day the pastors wife came to me and said she was offended because I was wearing that which she said pertained unto a woman.  I told here that the clogs were originated in Scandinavia and over there the women’s clogs had a back on them above the heel of the shoe and the men’s were open like the ones I wore, but I said, never the less, if it offends you that I wear clogs then I will not wear them and so should our attitude be. You see it is the weak Christian who can not make room for others being different, but the mature believer says, God does not look at every detail in your life, He looks at the condition of your heart. And so it should be with all of us.

38Finally Paul says, 17 For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of 1)righteousness, 2) peace and 3) joy in the Holy Spirit,

39Now, we could take a complete sermon on these three things, and perhaps some day we might, but then we see Paul say,

4018 because anyone who serves Christ in this way is pleasing to God and approved by men. 19 Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification.

41Now, what does that mean. It means try to do everything that you can do to keep the peace and be uplifting to all.

4220 Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food.

43Now, Listen!!! He says Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food. And what do people think they are doing when they make food their focus and not the Doctrine of Christ. Can eating meat or not eating meat give you a body change?  Common brothers and sisters? Paul’s entire admonition here has one purpose, to keep the peoples focus on Christ.

44Then he says, All food is clean, but it is wrong for a man to eat anything that causes someone else to stumble.

45Look, it’s all ok to eat unless your eating it causes someone else to loose their faith. You don’t live to yourself, and you certainly aren’t the only one affected when you die, so begin to live for others that Christ might live through you.

4621 It is better not to eat meat or drink wine or to do anything else that will cause your brother to fall. 22 So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God. Let me repeat that because this is the attitude that was in Christ. 22 So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God.  Blessed is the man who does not condemn himself by what he approves. Let the mind that was in Christ be in you.  23 But the man who has doubts is condemned if he eats, because his eating is not from faith; and everything that does not come from faith is sin.

47Let us pray…
