And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.

The Orgiinal Seed or God's Timepiece III

The Original Seed expressed (God's Timepiece III)

I feel so inspired just hearing the Word on tape this afternoon, the Seed is not heir with the Shuck (or husk).

God's timepiece of the full restoration of Israel is expressed in the nature of the Seed of that wheat which must first die before it can reproduce, some thirty fold, some sixty and some hundred. The four stages of this Life,  is first the seed dies and rot in the ground, next it puts forth a tender stem, next leaves formed, next the husk and finally the seed.

These four stages were given in fine details in the book of Joel, in two of the chapters. All the time during these four stages, there is a bug which will attack each of the stage. The palmerworm, the locust, the cankerwormand the caterpiller.

Joe 1:2-4

(2) Hear this, ye old men, and give ear, all ye inhabitants of the land. Hath this been in your days, or even in the days of your fathers?

(3) Tell ye your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children another generation.

(4) That which the palmerworm hath left hath the locust eaten; and that which the locust hath left hath the cankerworm eaten; and that which the cankerworm hath left hath the caterpiller eaten.

See the precision of the Word of God. In verse 3, it says, tell (who tells, the first generation 1st stage), ye your children (2nd generation) and their children's children (3rd stage) and another generation (4th or last stage).

And by the mouth of two or three witnesses, let everything be established. There are many witnesses in God's Word which is the Amen of all things. He said it and it is final. There are no about turn but the time frame may not be immediate. We have to look for the same pattern, the same admonishment for the bible is the oracle of God. Only by the revealing of the Word can we be made to understand God's purpose and final act.

In the book of Daniel, we read of the four forms of beast that Daniel saw in a vision and the last beast was the worst and most fearful because it is at the very end, that this beast faced the ultimate justice when the Ancient of Days whose hair was white like wool established His everlasting dominion.

Dan 7:4-14

(4) The first was like a lion, and had eagle's wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man's heart was given to it.

(5) And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh.

(6) After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it.

(7) After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.

(8) I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.

(9) I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.

(10) A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened.

(11) I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame.

(12) As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time.

(13) I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.

(14) And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.

The minor prophet Hosea spoke of this restoration on the Third Day. See the Timepiece God has set up for us to consider our days and the ending of it – Israel.

Hos 6:1-3

(1) Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.

(2) After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.

(3) Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.

Verse 2 of Hosea 6 says after two days, He will revive us, the Jews and raise us up on the Third day. The uttering of this prophecy by Hosea was about 753 BC and today, in the year 2014 is 2650 years which is exactly the 3rd One thousand years, the third day for one day with the Lord is as a 1,000 years. Brother Branham refers to the first verse , he hath torn and he will heal us the call of his ministry.

Psa 90:4

(4) For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.

2Pe 3:8

(8) But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

Rev 20:5

(5) But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.

The Day you eat thereof:-

Because in the Garden of Eden, God warned Adam not to eat of the Tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil and he will surely die on that day if he should have partaken of it. But Adam and Eve did eat and Adam died at the age of 930 years old, short of the 1,000 years which God will rectify when He restored to us to live that 1,000 years in the Millenium because Christ had died for us and that sin in the Garden of Eden is annulled.

Gen 2:17

(17) But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

The serpent used by the Devil lied to Eve and gave her a reason to ignore God's commandment. It brought death to the world and ever since, death came by the woman as Job lamented in Job 14. Man that is born of the woman is of few days - death.

Gen 3:3-5

(3) But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

(4) And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

(5) For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

Job 14:1

(1) Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble.

That was the penalty we found in our previous article, man delving into the mysteries without being a prophet but scientist. We know the Word of God don't come to scientists nor theologians. They are off their league. The Word of God comes only to His prophets, not even the pope or priests or ministers. Anyone trying to imitate a prophet is a witch or a wizard. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft.

1Sa 15:23

(23) For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

To know God's timepiece and His timeline is based on the Word revealed. Flesh and blood do not reveal that to us but the Lord Himself. So nobody can claim to understand unless they hear first from God and God had chosen prophets to do that.

Amo 3:7-8

(7) Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.

(8) The lion hath roared, who will not fear? the Lord GOD hath spoken, who can but prophesy?

2Pe 1:20-21

(20) Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

(21) For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

Yes, the Word came by holy men moved by the Holy Ghost. And prophets are borned not manufactured.

Isa 49:5

(5) And now, saith the LORD that formed me from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob again to him, Though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of the LORD, and my God shall be my strength.

Jer 1:5

(5) Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

Luk 1:15

(15) For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb.

Mat 16:17-19

(17) And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

(18) And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

(19) And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

Based on the scriptures above, from Isaiah to Mathew, we know it was not flesh and blood that hath revealed to us the mystery of God, but the Father which is in heaven. And this rock, which is not flesh and blood, but the REVELATIONS of God is the fortress and strength. Hence the Name of the Lord is a strong tower, the righteous run into it and are safe.

And what is Revelation? Paul tells us in the book of Hebrew.

Heb 4:12

(12) For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Yes, the Word of God is quick, powerful even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit and is a DISCERNER of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Today in the beginning of the twentieth century, God once again came and manifest this Word through the only Gentile prophet this side of the universe. There are no other contender and that is why it is so important and inevitably necessary to hear what he says.

Based on this gift of the Holy Spirit from the womb, Brother Branham thought he could go to demonstrate the sign of the prophet to the Jews as early as 1951. He bought his ticket to Jerusalem, Israel and was on transit in Cairo. The Lord but intervened. Listen to what the Lord told him.....

THE.GREATEST.GIFT.IN.THE.BIBLE_ EDMONTON.ALBERTA SUNDAY_ 57-0811A

E-18 When those Jews come in, they'd never heard of such a thing as Jesus. And many of you Norwegian and Swedish people here, the Filadelfian church of Stockholm, Sweden, sent down thousands of Bibles, New Testaments, to these little Jews. And the Jews as they would read this Bible, they said to the ones standing by, "If this be the Messiah, Jesus is the Messiah, let us see Him do the sign of the prophet and we'll believe Him." The Jew seeks signs, the Greeks, wisdom.

What a beautiful setup for the ministry the Lord has given me. I was in two hundred miles of Palestine recently. And I had my ticket to go on over; I thought, "This is the hour."

And the Holy Spirit called me from a plane at Cairo, Egypt. I went out behind the place and prayed and He said, "Don't go now."

QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS.ON.HEBREWS.1_ JEFF.IN COD WEDNESDAY_ 57-0925

220-61 And Brother... At Stockholm, Brother Pethrus, sent them down a million New Testaments, and when they got them they were reading them. They said, "Well, if this be the Messiah, let us see him do the sign of a prophet, and we'll believe him."

What a setup for my ministry. I was within two hours of the gate to Jerusalem, to go in; and I was at Cairo, Egypt. And I was walking along there, and the Holy Ghost said, "Don't go now."

I thought, "I was just imagination. My ticket's done bought; I'm on my road. The man's out there to meet me, the whole group, schools and so forth."

I walked a little farther, and the Spirit said, "Don't go. Don't you go."

I went back to the ticket agent; I said, "I cancel this ticket, I want to go up to Athens, Greece, to Mars Hill.

And he said, "Well, your ticket calls for Jerusalem, sir."

I said, "I want to go to Athens instead of going to Jerusalem." The Holy Spirit's waiting; that hour hasn't come just yet. It just isn't just right.

HAVE.FAITH.IN.GOD_ PITTSFIELD.MA SATURDAY_ 58-0510

E-48 And we interviewed them, Brother Arganbright, and many of the Christian Businessmen, and they said, "Are you coming home to the old homelands to die?"

Said, "No, we've come to see the Messiah."

When the fig tree puts forth it's buds... The six point Star of David hanging over there, the oldest flag in the world, flying again for the first time for two thousand years, no, twenty-five hundred years. Think of it.

They said, "Where is the Messiah?"

And then when they read these Bibles, they said, "If this Jesus was the Messiah, and He claims here that He's raised from the dead, let us see Him do the sign of the prophet. We'll believe Him."

Oh, what a real thing. My heart jumped. I said, "I want a ticket, I'm going. I'll call thousands of them out."

Say, "Did you mean that?" They believe their prophets. And when I got to Cairo, Egypt, thirty minutes of Palestine, I'd had my ticket in my hand. They were ready to make the first call. Something struck, said, "Not now. The wrath of God has not yet come to the Gentiles. Their iniquity is not yet fulfilled."

I thought, surely, that's my imaginary mind. I started on out again; I thought, "I'll walk out towards the ramp." And I started walking out, and then there stood that Light, that you see on the picture.

THE.TEN.VIRGINS.AND.THE.HUNDRED.AND.FORTY.FOUR.THOUSAND.JEWS_ JEFF.IN ROJC 425-492 SUNDAY_ 60-1211M

133 And Something struck me and said, "Do not go now, for the hour is not yet." See, the Gentile's isn't fulfilled yet (See?), day isn't finished.

"Oh," I thought, "that was just me."

So I started again, and it got so bad till I just couldn't stand it. And I went out behind a hangar, and I bowed my head; I said, "Father, is that You speaking to me?"

He said, "Do not go to Israel now; the hour is not yet." I just went in, changed my ticket, routed it again, went the other way (See?), 'cause the hour is not yet.

But one of these days the message will go to Israel, and what will break for... God will send unto them Moses and Elijah of Revelations 11, and they will do signs and wonders, and Jehovah's sign; while the Gentiles is finished, the grace of--day of grace will leave the Gentile church; the Pentecostal age will leave. The denominations will continue on, because they come up here with the sleeping virgin (We will go into that just in a moment.), but they will come up in that class.

THE.MARK.OF.THE.BEAST.AND.THE.SEAL.OF.GOD.2_ LONG.BEACH.CA FRIDAY_ 61-0217

E-50 And when they got there they give them these New Testaments. Ask Lewi Pethrus. They read this New Testament about what Jesus was. They never heard about Him. They said, "If this be the Messiah, then He's not dead, then let us see Him do the sign of the Messiah and we will believe Him. Let us see Him proved. We believe our prophets, and the Messiah will be a prophet. Let us see Him do the sign of the Messiah, a prophet, and we'll believe Him is the Messiah." Oh, what a perfect set up, just perfect. I said, "Lord, let me go."

And when I got off at Cairo, Egypt, just before we met that King Farouk, and we--at Rome. Then we went down at Cairo Egypt; I had my ticket in my hand to go. I went up, and they done called the flight. And the Holy Spirit spoke and said, "Not now. This is not the hour yet: more gleaning to do." I couldn't hardly believe it. I went out behind the hanger (God is my Judge.), and I prayed and knelt down; I said, "Heavenly Father, just another hour or two and I'll be in Palestine. I'll challenge those Jews. And say, 'Did you say that if that Messiah be the true Messiah, let you see Him do the sign of the prophet and you'll believe Him?'" Get a Jew to promise you; he will keep his word. "Now, if that's the Messiah of the Bible, then He was a prophet, and He is still is a prophet. Now, if He does the sign of the Messiah, will you believe Him?" Right on the same ground, say, "Select yourself a group of men and set them out here somewhere. Find out whether He's the prophet yet or not--or not. Let them see it be done. Then right on them same grounds where your fathers, forefathers, rejected the Holy Ghost... A Jew took it to the Gentile, here a Gentile bringing it back to the Jew. When that Jew receives the Gospel, the Gentile days are finished." But He wouldn't let me go. Why, I don't know. Here just a minute and we'll show you in the Scripture why.

E-51 Notice, hardened their hearts... Now, when was there ever a complete global strife after that time? Was the First World War. All of the armies, the nations, were gathering into one... [Blank.spot.on.tape--Ed.] They was writing on the decline of the First World War. Nobody knows today whoever made a issue of peace. Kaiser Wilhelm said he didn't do it. No general said he didn't do it. But notice, how strange it was. It was on November the 11th at eleven o'clock in the day. The eleventh day of the month, the eleventh month in the year, the eleventh hour of the day, and eleven minutes till eleven. What was it? Hold, stop mysteriously... What did it? God's issue went forth to hold it. "Hold the four winds." "Winds" means "war and strife"; we know. Until we have got Israel back in Palestine again, "Hold the four winds," and it stopped right there on the eleventh hour because...

Remember Jesus speaking of the eleventh hour, people? And the one that come in on the eleventh hour, what did He say? Oh, don't be dumb; be spiritual. Look, how did He say? The eleventh hour people got the same wage the one did that come in the first hour. Then the baptism of the Holy Ghost has to go right back and seal the Jew, like the first one was sealed, that eleventh hour people. "Hold the four winds; don't let the world be destroyed until we seal the servants of our God in their forehead.

E-52 That's been nigh to fifty years ago when the Holy Ghost come from the east, fell upon the people, and the Pentecostal, Azusa Streets and so forth, started. Now, what is going to happen? They have to hold it; don't destroy the whole earth, 'cause He couldn't have done it then anyhow. But now they've got the regular bomb that'll destroy the whole earth. That's right. Hold it until what? "Until we have sealed in the foreheads the servants of our God." Oh, brother. There you are. There you are.

... seal the servants of our God in their forehead.

And He goes ahead here and said.

... I heard the number of them was sealed:... was a hundred and forty four thousand... (give twelve thousand of each tribe)

Oh, my, don't you see what I mean? The Scripture perfectly put in. Now, remember, all without that perished.

E-53 Now, First World War, Second World War, and now we're ready for the Third World War: brewing everywhere. What is it? Israel's in her homeland waiting for her Messiah. The Gentile church, the Pentecostal age, Luther, Wesley, and now the Pentecostal age has got lukewarm and spued Jesus out, and He's spuing them out: right, the Pentecostal age. But just at the end before the world is to be destroyed, Jesus said, "As it was in the days of Sodom, so shall it be in the coming of the Son of man," that the Gentile church would receive the same power, the same angel, the same witness, the... Surely, you can see that. It's just as plain as plain could be. A child could see it. See?

See, the Holy Spirit told His prophet, not now. Do not go yet. Does this speaks of a return ministry? Yes and No. Yes because Israel will receive her Elijah and Moses. No because it will not be Brother Branham as the Gentile in a suit which John could not recognize, but it will be the Elijah and Moses of the old testament. God allowed the time window to open for John in the book of Revelation and he heard the ministry of a twentieth century prophet. That was why he could not recognize who it was and bowed down to worship this angel prophet, who had the testimony of Jesus Christ (which means he is a Christian and the closest person to fulfill these words in Rev 19:10 and 22:8. Some said it was Paul who spoke to John but we know John would have recognized Paul as Paul was in Jerusalem twice. Afterall, when Jesus rose from the grave, He came back to minister to His disciples for almost 40 days before He was taken up.
