Good Morning Friends
The Spoken Word is the Original Seed
This Forum is dedicated to the two sermons preached by William Marrion Branham under the title:
The Spoken Word is the Original Seed
In these two sermons, Brother Branham clearly and tremendously proves a number of facts about the Word of God.
And first, he shows that God's Word is the Origin Seed by which all things were created and made, and it is the only source of life, and the true foundation of Christianity. Outside God's revealed Word there is no truth, there no God, there is no genuine Christianity.
Secondly, he shows clearly that God's Word remains the same from the beginning and does not change with time, and that all will be judged by that Word. To add one word or subtract one word from God's Word means eternal damnation. So, it should be received wholly and fully the way it is. Where you don't understand you should wise enough to leave it the way it is and go pray over it.
30 Now, this Word of God is Eternal. God, being infinite, cannot speak one thing and then, later on, change it to something else, to a better decision. Because, every decision of God is perfect. He cannot. Once His Word is once spoken, It can never die. It lives on, on, on, and can never die, because It is God. His Word can no more die than He can die. 62-0318 - The Spoken Word Is The Original Seed, Rev. William Marrion Branham
Thirdly, he brings it out clearly that to mix God's Word with human opinions is to produce a hybrid product; any hybrid thing is dead to begin with; it has no life, and that is what religions do. As Eve received the serpent's seed and Adam's seed instead of God's Word, and thus was defiled bringing forth a hybrid race on earth, so are all churches defiled by Satan's lie and men's opinions about the Word. Remember, your opinion is a wrong seed; it is a lie, and the end thereof is death. When you receive men's opinions together with God's Word, you become a perverted creature just like a hybrid thing.
Fourthly, he brings out clearly that God's seed by which He brings forth His children is His Word. Just the same way a man begets children by his seed, so also God begets His children by His own seed. A man cannot beget a child by some lesson to his wife. That can never happen! A man gets a child by sowing a real seed into the womb of his wife, so God does not beget by using some religious lessons! He begets you by sowing a real seed into your heart. That seed is His Word. His Word is the revelation of Himself. It has nothing to do with religious lessons!
121 What is the Seed of Life? The Word of God. Therefore, for Life, you can’t come through a creed. You can’t come through a denomination. You got to come back to the Word, now, the Seed of Life. All right. His Word is His Seed, and His Spirit is the Water. 62-0318 - The Spoken Word Is The Original Seed, Rev. William Marrion Branham
Fifthly, He shows clearly that the seed that Eve was supposed to conceive and bring forth was the Spoken Word, not a biological seed! The biological seed is from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, and that is why men die, because they are born out of a wrong seed.
Eve was meant to conceive the Word of life to bring forth God's Son into his creation. She was to crown the whole creation by its creator, but she failed and crowned it by the serpent's seed instead. That is why Satan rules the present world; he is the god of this evil world. Yes, Christ was the seed that Eve was to bear children by. When God said "Be fruitful and multiply," He meant that they were to bear the children of His own seed. That seed is His Word. Not some religious ethics, but the living, breathing Word of God! No man can bear a child by some writings on paper, neither can God bear a child by some writings! You ought to receive the living Word into your heart!
127 He was that Seed that Eve should have produced. Do you get it? [Congregation says, “Amen.”—Ed.] He was the Seed that Eve was…produce. But she hybrid It, by disbelieving God’s Word. 62-0318 - The Spoken Word Is The Original Seed, Rev. William Marrion Branham
149 If Eve would have brought forth that Child…She would have finally done it. Did not God tell her, “Multiply and replenish the earth”? But she had to walk over here, play the part of a whore. Well, you just say, “That’s flat, Brother Branham.” But wait just a little bit, we’ll get into that a little later. 62-0318 - The Spoken Word Is The Original Seed, Rev. William Marrion Branham
Here, let me take these handkerchiefs. Here is the man that was supposed to be. Right here, this is the man that was supposed to be. What happened? Eve hybrid it, breed it, what it did. Then what did it do? Turned to death; just keep dying, dying. Now this one come, that out… Now here stays the Word, just the same. Here is the Word laying here, just the same. Now what happened? Here is the Word. Now, the Word that God spoke, “To multiply and replenish the earth,” It couldn’t find a place to land. Finally, this Word, It caught into the womb of a virgin. We’ll speak of the two wombs, this afternoon, more. 62-0318 - The Spoken Word Is The Original Seed, Rev. William Marrion Branham
Exactly what Eve was supposed to bring forth! It was to be the Word! She was supposed to conceive the Word of God in her womb the way Mary did. She was to become fruitful by the Word, not by the biological seed of flesh. Flesh only brings forth corruption. That is where death came from.
Sixthly, he showed plainly that God had all His sons and daughters predestined in His Word, and only that Word can beget a child of God. Everything is born from some seed, and the child takes the nature and character of the parent, so is it with God's children. They are just born out of His seed and grows to be exactly like God; they don't have to be taught anything.
188 Now notice. Now, in this, God foresaw and predestinated a world of sons and daughters. He predestinated them to be there. And because of hybreeding…Disbelieving God’s Word caused the hybreeding. God has put it right back, again, that you don’t have to be hybrid anymore. You can come right back to the original Word and be a son of God just like you was supposed to be at the beginning. See? 62-0318 - The Spoken Word Is The Original Seed, Rev. William Marrion Branham
Seventhly, Branham shows plainly that by that time, the healing revival he had spearheaded had died down, and that during that revival, three kinds of seeds had been sown -- the evangelical denominational seed whose sowing was headed by Billy Graham among others; the Pentecostal seed whose sowing was led by Oral Roberts among others; and the true Word of God had also been sown, and he was the main sower of the Word. That revival was former rain, which in Hebrew means planting or teaching rain. It was not latter rain. Latter rain will come later on. So, we are supposed to press ahead to that promise which is left for us by which we also enter into God's rest.
Eighthly, in the afternoon sermon, he shows that Satan has been misleading people by grouping them into religious organization led by antichrists. He proves that organized religious systems, like Eve, have been committing whoredoms with the devil through their antichrist leaders. All churches from the beginning to date have been deceived by Satan and misled away from the Word; and thus all are fallen; because of that, God cannot fulfill the purpose He has for His Word through them. All have fallen from the way of the Word.
Ninthly, Branham makes it clear that God has been sowing His seed to bring forth His sons through men in flesh on earth. That He passes His seed into the heart of a man by the channel of a man. The Word of life as a seed reaches the heart of a believer through a man whom God has sent and has anointed with that seed of life.
Then lastly, the Holy Spirit moved upon him to write a prophecy concerning the final church, the end of time Church, which he called a Super Race, a super church, the church that is finally perfected by uniting with the headstone who is the Word, and that from among them God will present to Christ a true Bride who cannot not compromise with anything away from the Word. The Spirit further points to an end time leader expected to come to usher in the latter rain, bring the super church into union with the whole Word, the headstone, and lead them across Jordan. Certainly, that leader is the one whom Branham was forerunning.
He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled. He must increase, but I must decrease. He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all. John 3:29
The Bridegroom is the true messenger for the Bride. John was not a messenger to the Bride, for the Bride was not with him. The same thing applies to Branham. He did not have the Bride with him! The above scripture applies to both ministries, the ministry of John and of Branham. The one who has the Bride is the Bridegroom. The one who comes to lead the Bride is the Bridegroom! Branham could not lead the Bride for he was not the Bridegroom. He must decrease with his ministry as the Bridegroom's ministry increases to call the Bride and lead her across Jordan.
Thus in the two sermons Branham speaks about the things that had been, the things that were happening that time, and the things to come. Our interest therefore should be centred on the things to come, for that is the promise left us.
Two promises come out clearly, and to see it, you have to compare Branham's ministry to John's ministry. John preached pointing the people ahead to two promises: The Word which was the one he was forerunning, and the Baptism of the Holy Ghost and fire.
John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water;  but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose:  he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire: Luke3:16
So, did brother Branham preach pointing us ahead to the coming Word, the headstone, even Joshua (Jehovah-Saviour] coming with the seventh seal -- the latchet which he was not worthy to loose. He preached the first six seals, but God forbade him to say anything about the seventh seal -- for that seal concerns the ministry of the Bridegroom in his second coming. He also pointed us to the final latter rain, the fullness of the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
Sharing on this forum includes your experience with the two sermons (the Spoken Word is the Original Seed, part 1 and 2), the revelations and the prophecies in it, and the application of the sermons to the present state time.
THE SPOKEN WORD IS THE ORIGINAL SEED
William Marrion Branham
Sunday Morning, 18 March 1962
Jeffersonville, IN., USA
Thank you, Brother Neville. Good morning, friends... [That is the first statement that Brother Branham spoke to the congregation as he arrived that morning with the wonderful message loaded in his heart... Good Morning Friends...]
[What a Good Morning it was, as the herald messenger arrived packing a fresh message from God! Just like Gabriel flying down to Mary and greeting her, "Hail Mary," so was the message of that bright blissful day, had only the people eyes to see! It's fire should have spread from country to country, and from continent to another.
It was indeed such a blessed morning, a spiritual breakthrough, as the forerunner arrived with that bright light, to point to the elect the final victory in love divine. The message revealing the past, showing clearly how the enemy had been slipping through and spoiling the human race, and pointing clearly to the only weapon that can withstand his craftiness. A message casting so bright a light on the religious past, present and future, and showing the elect the path leading to the final triumph against the antichrists. No wonder, it was a Good Morning! And I repeat again to you in this hour, "Good Morning Friends!"
Oh, yes, the message was a light that was forerunning the coming day, the breaking day, for the forerunner is the morning star. The sun, the sun of righteousness, was just beneath the horizon. So, the Morning arrives with Good News, the News announcing the soon breaking of Day. A cloudless Day:
And he shall be as the light of the morning, when the sun riseth, even a morning without clouds; as the tender grass springing out of the earth by clear shining after rain. 2Samuel 23:4
Who is that? The Day Star! The one whose light makes a day! The seven stars shines in the night, for that is when stars can be seen, and they are for signs. But the sun rising brings on a day! Hallelujah! Branham was the forerunner of the morning without clouds; a blissful day, a day without clouds! He whose ministry scatters all darkness from your heart, the Word!
But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. Mal 4:2
Malachi 4:5-6 foreruns Malachi 4:2! Malachi always presents two messengers, the herald and the one who is heralded. The herald is the morning star, and of course the morning begins just before sunrise, about 5.00am. For the scriptures speaks of four night watches: the evening watch [6.00pm - 10.00pm], the midnight watch [11.00pm - 1.00pm], the cockcrowing watch [2.00pm - 4.00pm], and the morning watch [5.00pm - 7.00pm]. The apostolic times, the dark ages, the Protestant reformation times, and the Pentecostal/Branham times respectively.
Thus, the forerunners ministry wanes into the ministry of the one whom he prepares the one for. John's ministry waned off as Jesus' ministry picked up. Of course, the sun's light causes the waning away of the morning stars light! The light of the message of the forerunner wanes as the light of the message of Christ waxes! So, was it after John, and so is it after Branham! Blessed are those who have eyes to see these things. None of the seven stars could make a day for you. It is the light from the face of Jesus that makes the day of the Lord, a day without clouds! There it is!
And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. Matthew 17:2 There is the great day star, the sun of righteousness, whose coming brings on the day break! Glory to God! Oh, hallelujah! You can't fail to see that, if you have eyes, of course. For light only means anything for those who have eyes.
And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. Rev 1:16 There is the sun of righteousness to arise after Branham, after the morning star, after the seventh star -- the messenger of messengers! Religious teachers only see seven messengers in that scripture, but they fail to see the messenger whose face shines like the sun; not as a star, but as the sun! The light of stars only mean anything during the night, so are the messages of the seven stars. But when the sun of righteousness arises, all other lights are put out! So is it now! If you only had eyes!
And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: Rev 10:1 Oh, what a messenger! The message He proclaims was not even written in the Bible! Why? He is the message! He is the Word! He is the whole Word of God; the very mind of God expressed into a living person, a son! That is beyond writing. Why? A son is begotten, not written! How could He, being the begotten Son of God, be written with ink and paper!
There he arrives after the seventh angels ministry and scatters all the night away! The very arch-angel, the arch-messenger, the fullness of God's mission on earth revealed.
When the day is dark before you,
And the clouds are hanging low,
There is One who watches o’er you,
Everywhere that you may go.
Jesus is the one, yes, He’s the only one,
Let Him have His way until the day is done;
When He speaks, you know the clouds will have to go,
Just because He loves you so.
2.O if you are sad and lonely,
Life is but an empty tomb,
Breathe a prayer to Jesus only,
He will drive away the gloom.
3. When you come to cross the river,
He will be your Friend and guide;
You can live with Him forever,
Over on the other side.
Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound. Isaiah 30:26 The moon symbolizes the Church; now here is a church whose light is like the sun! How? Because her messenger's light is seven times the sun! There is the Bride and the Bridegroom! There is the end of time Church! There is the super race Church. Not Laodicea please! The messenger of Laodicea is a mere star, the seventh, but here is a Church whose light is the seven spirits of God in one! Who is that? The one who has the seven spirits of God!
The messenger of the Bride is the Bridegroom. Period! The Man whose face shines like the Sun is the messenger of the Bride! He is the one to espouse her; he is the one to betroth her. He is the one to love her. He is the one to speak to her. He is the one to make love to her. He is the one to sow the seed in her womb to bring forth the super race. No one else can represent him! No one can represent a man in sowing his seed to bear a child for him! Branham could not represent Jesus! Jesus himself is the messenger of the Bride!
Joh_3:29 He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled. John did not have the bride, but Jesus had the bride in Himself, the same way Eve was in Adam before she was manifested; so, Branham did not have the Bride, but Jesus has His bride in himself. She comes out His own ministry on earth at His second coming. Yes, Branham as the morning star, introduces the morning break...
Yes, it was indeed a Good Morning Message when Branham arrived with that message that morning, just pulsating in his heart back and forth... and finally announced: The Spoken Word is the Original Seed!
Oh, what a title! Just reading that title alone left a never ceasing impact in my heart. The Spoken Word, not the written Word, but the Spoken Word, Spoken by those seven consecutive voices of thunder, is He who is the Original Seed. The One born out of those seven thunders. The One who arrives from the secret place of thunder, even the bosom of the Father, it is He who is the Spoken Word! Thou calledst in trouble, and I delivered thee; I answered thee in the secret place of thunder: I proved thee at the waters of Meribah. Selah. Psa 81:7
Praise the Lord! And in Him is life, eternal life, and the same is the light of men...the light of day, a cloudless day... a morning without clouds after the rains, with tender grass everywhere, soft and clean!
Hallelujah! Oh, yes... Good Morning Friends!
Why? What makes the morning good? It is the light thereof! What is that light? The Gospel light, the glorious Gospel light from the face of Jesus! Glory to God!
For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 2Cor 4:6 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth! Isa 52:7 The feet of one who comes, one mightier than me, one loaded with the richest melodies that eternity has, making His face shine above the sun, even seven times the sun! Oh, what a Gospel trumpet He sounds!
In other words, I bring you Good News today, for one mightier than I comes behind me, whose light brings you the morning without clouds... so, Good Morning to you! I bring you great News, that the sun of righteousness is arising with healing in His wings, to bind up the breach of His people and to heal the wound inflicted upon their souls by the serpent. Thus, Good Morning Friends!
Please I want you to answer the special greetings to you this morning! From the bottom of your hearts answer the greetings, if you are one of the friends to whom these charming, entrancing greetings were sent. Respond!
Oh, how charming is the voice loaded with grace! What? Good Morning Friends!
Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. Joh 15:15 Hallelujah! Good Morning Friends! A man does not hide anything from his friend; he shares all his heart with his friend, if he is a friend indeed. He pours all his heart out to his friend. And just like Abraham who was a friend of God, and God could not hide anything from him! And the LORD said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do...
So, the friend of the Bridegroom arrived that fine morning, breaking forth in Jeffersonville, packing a message from the Bridegroom, that He is on the way coming, to bring on a morning without clouds, so he greeted his fellow friends, extending the hand of friendship to them, conveying the same friendship which he enjoyed, being an Abraham spelled Branham... So, with deep tones of love he said, Good Morning Friends! People unto whom God was so much friendly to that He had sent a message to reveal the great secrets of what had gone by, what was going on then, and what was to follow. So, from the heart of his messenger preparing the way before him, He said, Good Morning Friends!
For he was announcing tidings of great things loaded with peace, that the Good Morning indeed was on his heels behind him. So, if those who heard such greetings rejoiced in the burning light of the forerunner, which light wanes away as the bright sun begins to beam his light across the sky, then how much more is it Good Morning to you unto whom the very sun has now risen! So, say I again to you, this day, to all the friends of the Spoken Word that has appeared among you: Good Morning Friends!
What a message stocked high with strong rich meals that can last you through a whole dispensation! No other sermon moved my heart like the two sermons preached that day. Oh, as I read that message book, I was fully absorbed away, sinking deeper and deeper into the bosom of the Word, until I forgot all about myself, about what I was doing, and where I was.
You know, I was looking after cattle, grazing in the plains in-between two rivers. I sat under the shades of some shrubs and started reading the book... hours passed on without the least notice. Oh, finally, I woke up from the book, and from its rich contents and could not tell where the cattle had gone! I ran all over the place looking for them. Finally, I found them in someone's field of vegetables. They had eaten a small part of it. I finally confessed it to him.
Hearing the voice of the friend of the Bridegroom, yes, my very friend, addressing me about His love, how could I help but fall in love with every word from his lips, as it were a honeycomb, full and tripping. What was the forerunner's voice to me? Good Morning Friend! And my heart was hollering back, "Good Morning Friends... to you my friend indeed!
I have been in much prayer this week, and I would not even get through if I had not cut about a quarter or a third away of what I wish to say.
I had the privilege, a few moments ago, of talking to an old man and woman, Brother and Sister Kidd, who have been very faithful down through the years. They stopped a few moments ago. I told them to come by; I wanted to see them a minute; and what a privilege it was to talk to old people that had been preaching the Gospel when I was yet a baby! And the glorious old Gospel gets better all the time as we near the end of the road.
The Glorious Gospel gets better or brighter all the time; for it is the path of the just, even the sun of righteousness! As the morning begins to dawn, the horizon gets brighter and brighter till the eye-lids of the morning beams across the sky. So, what was making the morning good? the glorious old Gospel The Spoken Word, the Original Seed from the beginning. And you know what? The Alpha is becoming Omega all the time. But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day. Pro 4:18 Brighter and brighter until a perfect day spreads before him, even the day of the Lord.
Now, let us just bow our heads a moment for a word of prayer.
Our heavenly Father, You said in Your Word: “If I be lifted up from the earth I will draw all men unto Me.” And, that is our purpose in life, is to lift up before a dying generation of people, that Jesus Christ is still the Son of God, the Saviour of the world. And I am so happy to know that I live where there are people who believe that, and along with the thousands that have accepted Him as their Saviour.
And knowing that after this life is finished, there will be a Life on the other Side that will be so glorious that these toils and few hours that we are passing through in these shades and shadows of life here are in the testing ground, and that we are merely entering into the orbit now, waiting for the countdown, for soon there will come a time that when God’s time is fulfilled. The great arm, that has held back the time so long, will finally let go, and His Church will move off from this earth in space out yonder into a Land where there will be no sickness, sorrow, old age, death. That is why we are gathered today, Ishi, is to express our feeling about these things.
We are so glad to know that this is not just bringing the people together for something vain; it has been proven the greatest Reality the world has ever known, that the Son of God is not dead, Who made the promises, but is alive among us forevermore. And we are so happy this morning, Ishi, above all things, for though we owned the world and could be young for hundreds of years to enjoy it, but it would only be a season compared with what is the time that is laid up for those who love Him. So we are trying to point our brother and sister to this great hour that is approaching us. And as we see that time coming, Ishi, our hearts burn. We want to make ready.
And one by one we go down the lane. We just got through burying one from our midst. Our Sister Bell, going so quick (according to her request), that we could not get to her to pray with her, but it was her request; how good You are to provide all the things that we desire in our hearts. You leave none of them. You promised it.
Now, we pray that You will bring those hearts who do not understand You to understand today. Bring sinners to repentance; bring sick people to the healing knowledge of God. O God, bless Your saints and bind their hearts together. And as these tapes goes out to the cities and the churches all out through the nations around the world, may ministering brethren who have maybe once misunderstood understand now that Thy Church might be prepared.
And now, O Lord, Who separated me from my mother, Who has fed me all the days of my life and has brought me to this hour, by Thy grace, feeling it was Thy Will that I should explain to the people why that I have acted the way I have done; may it be in such a way that people will have a better understanding, Ishi, of the peculiarity of Thy servant.
Grant these things, Father, these Scriptures and a text and words that we have written here through the week, praying and studying. May they fall on good ground everywhere they are heard, a ground that can hold them and nourish them, and then all praise shall be given to Thee, for we ask it in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Yes, I extend my hand again to you:
Good morning friends...
