          In 1962, God’s Prophet, William Branham, preached two sermons entitled, “The Spoken Word is the Original Seed.” It took most of one day for him to preach them, one in the morning and the other the same afternoon. Both together, were about six hours long. In these two messages, he made some astounding statements that this writer believes has led to a powerful revelation. It concerns finding out who we are in God’s spiritual realm and has to do with the fact that scripture says, “Every seed must bring forth of its kind.”          In the first chapter of Genesis, the Holy Ghost said that every seed was to reproduce “after its own kind.” This order of God was repeated eight times, and included botany life, all beast, fish of the waters, and human life as well. In Gen. 1:26, God said, “Let us make man in our Image, after our Likeness….” That is to say, “Let us make man after our own kind.” And we know from the Prophet’s Message that this first creation of man was in a body called a Theophany. It was a body like God’s own Theophany Body. God’s Seed produced offspring “after God’s Kind.”

          Before God came down and was made flesh in the womb of Mary, and before the Holy Ghost came to live in the hearts of men, the Bible teaches that God came down in some kind of a body and walked and talked with men. Our Prophet said that the body that God appeared to Abraham in was a Theophany.

          QUOTE: IF GOD BE WITH US. PAGE 10, “It was God, it was a Theophany. A man in the form of God, like appeared to Abraham back in the wilderness, and He looked like a man.” (End quote)

          Gen. 3:8 tells us that in Eden , before Adam sinned, God walked and talked with them. He must have been in His Theophany Body.

          QUOTE: SPOKEN WORD IS THE ORIGINAL SEED, PAGE 18, “The Bible said, ‘Let every seed bring forth its kind.’ Now when God said that, that settles it. It’s always settled. Let every seed bring forth of its kind.” (End quote)

          There are many different kinds of seed, and the Bible says that the very first seed of any kind was a WORD that God had spoken. God spoke the word GRASS and grass appeared. God spoke the fruit trees by NAME and they appeared. He said let there be LIGHTS in the firmament, and the Sun, Moon, and Stars appeared. He spoke and the fish and the beast of the earth appeared, and God saw that all this was good. But, He was not through with His Creation. He had been working toward creating His masterpiece, a man with a body made in His own Image.

          In creating this man, God used the same method that had brought the rest of creation into being, He spoke, and that Seed Word produced a man. That man was like his Creator because the Seed that produced him was God’s own Seed, and every seed will produce after its own kind. God’s own Seed produces God’s own kind! So God created His own kind in Theophany Bodies in the beginning. (Gen. 1:26)

          God’s Seed produces God wherever it’s planted. When the Holy Ghost overshadowed the Virgin Mary and planted God’s Seed in her, it produced Jesus Christ, who was God in flesh. When God said in Gen. 1:26, “Let us make man in our Image, after our likeness,” there appeared God like beings in Heaven, with bodies like their Father, the Creator. God’s Spoken Word Seed produced Son’s of God with bodies like their Father. It was a law of God and so it could not be otherwise. Some of these Son’s of God were created to fall and follow Lucifer, but some were “ELECT ANGELS” who would not fall. (See I Tim. 5:21)

          Following the rebellion of Lucifer in Heaven, and his being cast out along with the angels who chose to follow him, the time came for God to place His true Sons on Earth, to be tested and tried. Perhaps Lucifer had another conversation with the Lord concerning these faithful Angels, much as he had with Him about Job. Lucifer declared that if God would open the hedge and let him in to test and try Job, he would curse God.

          Is it too far fetched to believe that Lucifer declared to God that if He would let him test and try the Elect Angels, he could cause them to follow him also? At any rate, that is what the Lord did. He took a seed out of the original creation of man and placed it here on Earth in the new-born flesh bodies of His Sons. They were to grow up and be put to the test to prove they would not follow Lucifer, but overcome him with God’s Word.

          QUOTE: C.O.D. BOOK, PAGE 340, “Notice now, when man was separated from the Theophany and put in flesh, he wasn’t just altogether there (in flesh); part of his being was still a Theophany. (End quote)

          QUOTE: C.O.D. BOOK, PAGE 344, “That’s the way we are here, we came from a higher being (a Theophany). In the beginning we were in the Image of God. The veil of darkness keeps us from knowing it now, but Jesus told His disciples He was with them before the foundation of the world, see! We were……..and if this earthly tabernacle be dissolved we have one already waiting. Then we move into this Theophany, what we once lived in.” (End quote)

          The Bride of Jesus Christ have in their flesh bodies a part of God Himself, that was taken from their original created bodies called a Theophany. This “Part” we speak of is a Seed of God that was placed in them at their physical birth.

          QUOTE: C.O.D. BOOK, PAGE 341, “We are both natural and supernatural.” (End quote) I Cor. 15:44, “There is a natural body and there is a spiritual body.”

          QUOTE: C.O.D. BOOK, PAGES 20-23, “He made the man and the woman before they was ever formed out of the dust of the Earth, and then God made man, NOT in His own Image. This body (of flesh) is not in the Image of God, this body is in the Image of Beasts. Jesus told His disciples that He knew them before the foundation of the world, before the world was ever formed.” (End quote)

          God allowed Lucifer to enter the human race through the Serpent, into Eve, then into Adam, and from Adam into every human born of sex. Our flesh bodies are the result of the sin in Eden . We were born totally lost and “Dead in trespasses and sins,” (Eph. 2:1) but our Father did not intend to leave His Elect in this condition. When we were born physically, the Holy Ghost Seed Planter again overshadowed each new-born Elected Child of God and placed a Seed of God in that little flesh body.

          When God’s time came, He watered that Seed and it sprang into life. We call that the “New Birth.” It amounts to our God slaying the old soul and replacing it with His own Soul (a portion of His own Soul). THE BREATH-TAKING REVELATION IS THAT THERE WAS NO DIFFERENCE IN THE SEED PLACED IN THE VIRGIN MARY, AND IN THE SEED PLACED IN EVERY PREDESTINATED SON AND DAUGHTER OF GOD! We know that the seed in Mary produced Jesus Christ, who was God in the flesh.

          Do we not also know that the Seed placed in us was to do the same thing? Gal. 4:19, “My little children, of whom I travail in birth again UNTIL CHRIST BE FORMED IN YOU.” God’s Seed, His own Seed, is all of one kind, and it can only produce after its kind, and its kind is God. (The Bride is not God, so as to be worshipped, but they are OF HIM, born-again spiritually of His Seed.) I Peter 1:23, “Being born again, not of CORRUPTIBLE SEED, but of INCORRUPTIBLE, by the Word of God, which liveth and abideth forever.”

          We were born physically by corruptible seed, the seed of our earthly father whose blood line was corrupted because of Adam’s sin. But, at our spiritual birth, the INCORRUPTIBLE SEED OF GOD that had been placed in us beforehand was quickened into life, and the glorious result will be “Christ formed in us.” Can we not see then that the seed we received at our physical birth was of the same source as the seed placed in the Virgin Mary? It was God’s Seed, and therefore can produce nothing less than God!

          Who are we then in our INNER-MAN? We are truly Sons and Daughters of the Great King. King Jesus lives in these flesh bodies! To be called “Sons of God” is not just a saying, it is a scriptural fact. With this revelation continually in our thoughts, how then should we conduct ourselves as we take this Creator King Jesus from place to place in our daily walk? No doubt some questions have come into your minds concerning what we have said about there being no difference in God’s Seed, in that wherever it is planted, it can only produce God. For example, you may ask, “If I have the same seed that was placed in Mary (which produced Christ, who was literally God), then why is it that I cannot live totally above sin, as my Lord did? This is a fair question, but not one that cannot be answered.

          The answer to this question has to do with the TIME the Seed was placed in Mary, as compared to the TIME it was placed in us. The Holy Ghost overshadowed Mary BEFORE she knew a man. Therefore, the blood in her Son Jesus was not from the lineage of Adam, but from God Himself, and the Bible says, “The Life is in the Blood.” (Lev. 17:11) At our physical birth, this Seed of God was placed in us AFTER our mother had known our father. Therefore, our blood-line was contaminated because it was from the lineage of Adam.

          Through the blood-line then, our Lord Jesus was ENABLED to live above all sin. Not that He was not tempted like as we are, but that He had in Him the ABILITY, through the Blood of God, to overcome all sin, and it was the plan for Him to do so. He was to be the REDEEMER, and as such, He had to be a sin-free sacrifice. We were to be born needing to be redeemed because of what our first parents did in Eden . We were born separated from God and unable even to come to Him on our own, much less keep His Holy Law Standard. (John 6:44)

          Could not God have placed His seed in us BEFORE our mothers had known a man? Surely He could have done so, He is God. He does whatsoever pleases Himself. But, His plan was to be a Saviour and a Redeemer, and if we had been born of a Virgin also, this would have defeated His plan to show forth that powerful Love that had before time had no proper way of expression. We would have needed no Redeemer.

          Aren’t you glad, Dear Bride that we know, according to the Prophet and the Word of God, that there is nothing “out of cater?” “The creature (us) was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of Him who hath subjected the same in hope.” (Rom. 8:20 ) Our birth, with our separation from God, was right on schedule, and so was the birth of our Redeemer right on schedule, as He also took part of flesh and blood (though His was different from ours). (See Heb. 9:12-14)

          Heb. 2:14, “For as much then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same, that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is the Devil.”

          And so God’s Great Plan was to subject His Sons and Daughters to flesh bodies, in which they could not keep His Law perfectly (Gal. 2:21), but He would also make the Captain of their Salvation PERFECT through sufferings, in the same kind of a flesh body.

          Heb. 2:10, “For it became Him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing MANY SONS unto glory, to make THE CAPTAIN of their salvation perfect through sufferings.”

          Heb. 2:11 tells us that we are of the same seed as our Sanctifier, Jesus Christ. “For both He that sanctifieth, and they who are sanctified, are all of one.” (All of one what? All of one kind of seed, The Seed of God.)

          Paul said, “Christ is being formed in you.” Gal. 4:19, “My little children of whom I travail in birth again, until Christ be formed in you.” (It takes the Seed of God to form God in us.)

          Did our Prophet actually teach that we are of the same seed (in our spiritual man) that produced Jesus Christ?

          QUOTE: THE SPOKEN WORD IS THE ORIGINAL SEED, PAGE 30, “If you want a life of God, start with the Word of God…….And if that is the fullness of God in you, then the rain that’s falling will produce exactly what’s in your garden………FOR IT IS THE SAME SEED WORD OF GOD. God’s Son was His example seed….The very life that He produced (in Mary), that same watering Spirit of the Holy Ghost will bring forth the same kind of life, doing the same thing He did. IF IT’S THE SAME SEED. SON OF GOD SEED WILL BRING FORTH THE SON OF God SEED.” (End quote)

          QUOTE: SPOKEN WORD IS THE ORIGINAL SEED, PAGE 31-32, “And a real seed of God is an absorbent for the Spirit. All denominations is took out. All unbelief is out, and when the Holy Spirit comes into that germ of life that’s laying there, it produces another seed, just exactly. Another Son of God is born. Amen! Another amateur God, Son of God.”……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 anymore. You reckon yourself dead, hollowed out, waiting for the seed germ. Then what is it? It isn’t you anymore, isn’t the man, it’s God in the man. It’s the Seed
Word like the beginning Spoken Word
.” (End quote)

          Friends, our Father God is still in the process of revealing to us who we actually are! We are so very much aware of our sins and failures in our flesh man, that we are slow to understand that God is still producing HIMSELF in flesh bodies. Not that our flesh is of God, but our innermost being, our NEW SOUL is of God, IT IS GOD. When our mind can comprehend this most powerful and glorious fact, it is then that our devilish flesh will be made to bow down before this God that is in us!

          It is then that, by Faith, we will be enabled, as was the Apostle Paul, to keep this flesh body under. Our struggles to overcome satanic flesh will be over, and we will simply rely on the God who is in us to do it for us. All He has been waiting for is for us to realize that we will never, on our own, be able to do it. This makes Him more precious to us than ever, realizing that He has made all of His mighty power available to His own Seed.

          As this truth seeps into our minds, other great revelations will emerge. For example, we will see that God will bless even the things that we touch. The Apostle Paul, in reading the Old Testament scrolls, learned that whatever the Prophet Elijah touched was blessed. (The staff that he carried sent to be laid on a dead boy). From that example, Brother Branham said Paul learned that he could send cloths from his body and see people blessed and healed. So did the Prophet of our age make use of this powerful anointing.

          But, we must remember that this anointing is not something we gain by being Holier than some others. It is something God has done by placing His own seed in us. We had nothing to do with that Seed planting; it was not given because of any good He saw in us. We have it simply because He chose to manifest us on Earth as one of His attributes. Elijah was a man subject to like passions as we are. (James 5:17) Paul rebuked the people who would have offered sacrifices unto him and Barnabas after seeing the man at Lystra healed, saying, “Sirs, why do you these things? We also are men of like passions with you….” (Acts 14:8-15)  Peter said in Acts 3:11-12, “Ye men of Israel , why marvel ye at this? Or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk?”

          We do not gain this anointing by living a perfect life in our flesh. We have it because God saw fit to place His Seed in us and then quicken it, resulting in our being given a New Soul. Why do we wait any longer then, Bride of Christ? It is time for us to move forward, with the knowledge that we are the anointed of God, even while we still live in an imperfect flesh body. Let us walk every hour with a repentant heart, dropping every sin into the Blood of God, while we do His works.

          The anointing that is on us will cause souls to be saved, devils to be cast out, and people to be healed. Is this not the Bride Revival that the scriptures and the Prophet said would come? Let us walk with a new faith, expecting devils to tremble and manifest themselves to us, even as they did to our Lord when He was here in His own body. He is here now in our body, not a different Christ, but the same one who cast these devils out 2000 years ago. These devils have known who we are ever since that Seed was quickened in us, and now that we are finding out who we are, they will no longer be able to hide from us.

          We know they are the reason people can’t get through to God to receive the Holy Ghost and to be healed. We cannot give the Holy Ghost, nor heal a body, but the Prophet said we can bind or cast out the Devil spirits that are keeping them from it. (See Page 14, paragraph 30 in the Demonology Book.)

          May God move us straight into the End-Time Revival. May His work then be completed through us, and may you come for us quickly, Lord Jesus. Amen!
