The Spoken Word

Is the Original Seed


In the Genesis dispensation, God sowed His Seed for the purpose of multiplying it. The Seed that was sown was the Word. He (the Word) was sown by being slain as a lamb, offered to God on behalf of the imperfect world. For the eternal judgement of God could not suffer anything short of perfection to exist. But the things which were nonexistent, were so because of their imperfections. Thus to bring them into existent required a sacrifice. The lamb of God provided the way.

And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the worldRev 13:8 

The way Abraham went to offer his only begotten son as a sacrifice upon the mountain, so indeed God offered his only Son, as a honorable sacrifice to bring into existence the worlds. That is why Moses was commanded to speak to the rock to bring forth his waters, after he had smitten it the first time, but Moses, in unbelief, smote the rock the second time, foretelling what the Jews would do to the Son of God. For God had already offered him for them to exist, but because of sin, he had to be smitten the second time to atone for their sins.

Now, the lamb being slain, the creation came into existence and received him as a sown seed. Thus the Spoken Word was the Original Seed, buy which all things were brought into being, be it good or evil. But God's purpose for offering His only begotten Son was not only for bringing the creation into existence, but also for multiplying him, for unless the corn of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone.

So was the Son of God, the Father's Seed, sown into the ground of creation in order to multiply him. For the creation came in as he passed out, thus receiving him into their ground. Then the testimony of death that had occurred took his place and spread over all things, with a commandment to keep until he who was slain for their sake should return. So, the dying of the lamb, as he was slain in the beginning, was the onset of the ministration of death engraved on stones of the creation:

Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life. But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away: How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious? For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory. 2Cor 3:6-9 

The letter here implies the knowledge of the flesh... "a man of letters"... means a learned man, learned in the knowledge and wisdom of this world. So, is the knowledge of the law; it is taught and learned as letters:

Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught. And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned? Joh 7:14-15 

Thus, the knowledge of this world is called letters, and the same is the ministration of death which occurred when the lamb was slain. It took his place as he died as a memorial of him who died for the creation to exist.

Thus, Genesis was the sowing dispensation. Not only did God sow his own seed, but others also sowed their seed. There was sowing in Genesis Chapter One by God Himself as the sower of the Word; there was sowing in Genesis Chapter three where two types of seeds were planted: the serpent's seed and Adam's seed. There was again the sowing of seed in the days of Noah after the flood, three kinds of seed were sown... Shem, Japheth, and Ham. Shem brings forth the Hebrew race; Japheth brings forth the Gentile race while Ham brings in the African race.

But the Word of God germinated during Genesis through the ground of the fathers as they beheld God as El-Shaddai -- the exceedingly fruitful one. Then in the Old Testament, which begins with Moses (the law), the Word put on a blade and increased day by day through Moses and the Exodus, Joshua and the Judges, Samuel and the kings and Elijah and the prophets. By the end of the ministry of the prophets, the blade had fully become a mature stalk. Then from the apostolic times through the Gentile times, the Word begun to flower. This increased and waxed more and more through the ministry of the seven messengers, and by the time of Branham the Baptist, a forerunner of Christ's second coming, the tassel and the shuck (the ear) were fully grown ready to give in into the final season -- fruiting unto harvest. So, now we are in the dispensation of fruiting, maturing, ripening and harvesting, quite a wonderful season!

Genesis -- the sowing dispensation

Old Testament -- the growing of the blade called the stalk

New Testament -- flowering and putting on the shuck

The Day of the Lord -- fruiting, maturing, ripening unto harvest

And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground; [Genesis] And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how. For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, [The Old Testament] then the ear, [The New Testament] after that the full corn in the ear. [The fullness of time] But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come. Mar 4:26 -29

The Spoken Word is the Original Seed!

THE SPOKEN WORD IS THE ORIGINAL SEED is a title to a pair of sermons that are among the most remarkable sermons preached by WILLIAM BRANHAM. They are so powerful and so revealing. Certainly, it was the Spirit of prophecy upon William Branham speaking concerning things that had been, and that were happening, and those that were to come after him. The Spirit clearly pointed to two landmark prophecies: 1) The latter rain and 2) The end-time messenger with a message to lead the church across Jordan.

THE BIBLE SAYS: In the beginning was the Word, [No religion was there of any kind, not Catholicism, not Protestantism, not Pentecostalism, not Muslim, not Judaism, but THE WORD!] and the Word was with God, [It is the Word that was with God, not some religious organization, not some religious teaching, not some religious laws, not the Catholics, not Protestants, not Pentecostals, not the Muslims, not Judaism, not Muhamed, not Budha, not Pope, nor any religion!] and the Word was God [Not Catholicism, not Protestantism, not Pentecostalism, not Muslim, neither Judaism nor any other religion, but it is the Word which God Himself spoke out of His bosom is His revelation].
