By Brother Charley Clyde

Brother Branham listed the understanding of Serpent's Seed as one of the Lost things of the Church Ages and he explained it in the Message, "Sirs is This the Time". He revealed that the Truths of it had been restored to the church under the Malachi 4 portion of his ministry.

Now to those that can receive that the original sin in the garden was Eve's transgression by her sexual union with the Serpent, the question that immediately arises is this: What then happened to the natural Serpent's Seed? Because sooner or later this subject comes up, many ministries have tried to explain this question and have completely missed the way these things were taught by our Prophet.

We must remember that there were two things interjected into the human race when Satan used the Serpent for his perverted action. The First thing that we readily see, is the hy-breeding that naturally come into manifestation through Satan's ploy of using the Serpent.. [This channel brought into being a lineage from the Serpent that produced his own offspring of scientific and learned men]

God's True method of bringing into being sons and daughters was ordained to be by the creative power of the Spoken Word and Spoken Word alone. When sin entered because of the sex birth, then came the permitted nature we are all born with. It now takes a complete changing of the soul by a Word Birth to restore a spiritual relationship back with our Creator. Through the Message of God's Prophet, we learn that once again in this end-time that a Spoken Word Birth has come back into manifestation by the Token of Life which is Christ, Himself, on the scene again.

If Adam and Eve would have waited they would have come to God's Spoken Word method of reproduction and only true Sons and Daughters of God would have come into being.

Instead, Eve's Sorrow, which is the sexual act having to be used to bring forth children, was greatly multiplied and children of both Belief and Unbelief flowed from the womb of womanhood. [Some were ordained on the Lamb's Book of Life and some were not a part of the Promise]. That is why it took God's Word by his special Messengers, wooing the Elect in every age and generation to separate and make known which was which. By Predestination the Sons and Daughters of God already are on the Lamb's Book of Life but had to be called out by God's Word being preached in every age so that they were able to recognize and walk in God's promises to show and prove who they were.

We also must recognize that here can be no natural Serpent's Seed now. The Natural seed germ always comes from the Male and of course the seed germ is the Blood cell. Medical science then shows us that the Blood cell is definitely the cell of life that comes from the male alone.

The germ of Life carried by the sons of God is traced in the book of Genesis from Adam through Seth all the way to Noah. Then after the Flood it is important to note that no other males other than Noah and his sons were there when the commandment was again given to replenish the earth. This replenishment could now only come by the sexual act and God now ordained that this physical act would be the chosen way and acceptable in His sight for a period of time. The plan of the redemption of man is then promised to Noah as a Token [Life Promise] in Gen. 9, between God and the earth. So all flesh after the flood had to come in the natural reproduction by Noah's three sons of righteous linage. Therefore, the Blood cell of the human race that had been polluted by the Sons of God [Linage of Seth] intermixing with the daughters of men [Linage of Cain] was destroyed by the flood and only the linage of Seth existed as a Blood line.

However, there also was another kind of a seed and Brother Branham tells us that this corruptible seed [Spiritual Unbelief which was Satan's own nature] that was interjected into the human race by the natural linage, that was carried over, in the ark, by those female carriers. The laws of genetics tell us that half the physical genes do come from the mother [female]. So the genes of the serpent, but not the blood cell, was carried over into the entire human race, from both the male and the female. Giants therefore were born, characteristics from the process of natural selection took place and the physical was also in manifestation. In fact the ungodly nations bred up their Great Giant warriors much as we see cattle breeding today. That is how such men as Goliath and his brothers were born into the world, because those genes were carried over and cultivated by the ungodly. The Blood cell, itself, comes entirely from the father so there was nothing of the Serpent's blood present nor any channel of Life that could be used. The natural seed of the Serpent passed away but the Spiritual seed of Unbelief contaminates us all with that first breath of Life that we take. [The Living Soul has been born to fallen flesh to be dealt with by the Word]. No wonder David said, "I came forth from my mother's womb speaking lies". "So did we all."


"Now, Noah and his sons which come out, Ham, Shem, and Japheth, come out in the righteous line. How did the seed ever get over? The seed come over in the ark, just like it did in the beginning through the woman, their wives. They carried the seed of Satan through the ark, just as Eve packed the seed of Satan to give birth to Cain, through the woman. You put them women in your platforms for preachers, the Bible condemning it. Paul said, "If any man thinks himself to be a Prophet or even Spiritual, let him acknowledge that whit I write is the commandments of the Lord; but if he be ignorant, just let him be ignorant."

Therefore the see of the serpent that was carried had to be a Spiritual seed for it could not be carried in a natural way. Always in the Scripture there is a natural and a Spiritual application of the Word. That Spiritual seed of unbelief has to be and is in us all, because we all came by sex through the women of that ark. That is why the woman cannot preach or ursurp authority over the man. David said, "We are all born in sin, come forth from our mother's womb speaking lie". So our sex birth places within us the seed or nature of death [Nature of death is the Old Soul] and the seed of death is the seed of the serpent. This next quote shows that even a prophet has a fallen nature [old soul] because he comes by sex. We can only have that seed changed by the New Birth that places the seed germ of life [new soul] in us.


"And as I preached over at the Central Assemblies, or the First Assembly, the other night, how God's great nature projected Jesus. See, all the rest of the nature was fallen. He couldn't take a prophet, because he was borned of sexual desire, and he was a fallen nature. But God in His Love projected One without sin. And therefore this One was so perfect with the Father, just a body that was called the Son, that the Word was Him. John explains it in the 1st chapter. "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word was made flesh."

If our first birth was alright why must we be born again? The flesh birth will take us into the lake of fire if we are not born again by the incorruptible seed. If Jesus Christ is the incorruptible seed of our Word Birth is not the corruptible seed of our first birth Satan? The truth is that we were never meant to be born by sex, for we should have come by the spoken word like Adam and like Jesus who was Spoken into the womb of Mary. When we come by this Spoken Word Message of the last hour we are the Spoken Word Children born from out of the womb of the church. I ask the question; If the Spoken Word was the original seed then what will be the seed produced in this hour? It will , of course, be the Spoken Word in human flesh form. Isn't it amazing that Brother Branham's third pull was the Spoken Word? And isn't it amazing that all things fit together?


"And if it's the Word of the Lord, then it's His premeditated thoughts. Amen. That's how we have Eternal Life, because we was spoken into existence by God, not joined into9 a church, but born by the Word, the original Seed, that God said, "Let there be," and there was. Amen. That's the way God borns His children today, in the womb of their heart with His Word, and His Word takes root and grows. How can a spirit in a human heart say it's of God and deny this Word, when the very God-Word itself is what's in the human heart? Amen. If it isn't, it's something else, and it isn't the Holy Spirit in there. All right."


"Just like in the beginning, it was not God's perfect will for children to be born on the earth through sex. No, sir. God created man out of the dust of the earth, breathed the breath of life into him, and he become a living soul. He took from that man a helpmate and made a wife to him. That was God's first and original will. But when sin come in and did the thing that it did, then He permitted man to marry a wife legally and have children by her. "Multiply and replenish the earth then, if that's the way you're going to do it." But, you see, it never was His perfect will. Therefore, all these things that had a beginning has to have an end. All sin has to come to annihilation. All sin has to be done away with. Therefore, in the great millennium when the resurrection comes, we will not have to be reborn again by out fathers and mothers, but God like He did in the beginning will call man from the dust of the earth and his helpmate with him. That's right. That's the way He did it at the beginning."


"Now, looky how God planned that. Now, God is the male part of--that brought Jesus Christ here. Now, God's a Spirit, so there couldn't be any sex. There couldn't be ant sexual desire. Because if it was, then Jesus wasn't born a virgin birth. So God is a Spirit, and He overshadowed this Mary and created in her the blood cell that brought forth the Son of God. And it's through His holy Blood that we have access to life. And our sexual blood is dismissed, and we have the Blood of Jesus Christ that stands for an atonement, making an atonement for our sins. How beautiful the picture. You believe that? You have to be if you're saved. You can't accept nothing else and be saved."

The old seed nature is completely burned out with the Holy Ghost fire and annihilated. And the Spoken Word germ is birthed into the believer. The Elect, the Prophet said, had representation laying inside us. That is not some kind of visible seed but God's thought [Representation] reaching out into His children who already have their names written on the Lamb's Book of Life from before the foundation of the earth.


"You become a new person [Amen], not just an old one patched up by joining church or trying to turn a new page, but you are a complete BRAND NEW UNIT, God takes the old man and burns him completely out with the Holy Ghost and Fire and comes Himself, sends down your representation. "No man can come to Me except My Father has drawed him. And all the Father has given Me will come to Me." Same plan, same way."


"And therefore, the life that's in there is of the world, and that life will not stand. It's a thing that is already judged and condemned. You can't patch it up. There's no way to--to smooth it out. There's no way to make it better. It's got to die. That's the only requirement there is. It's got to die, and the substitute, a Life of Jesus Christ has to come into you, which is the Holy Ghost, God's Token, that you have accepted the Blood of His Son, Jesus Christ. Therefore, in the days of Wesley, or the days of Luther, it was thought to believe--in the days of Wesley, the chemistry of the Blood. But this is the last day where the--Token is required. That males together the WHOLE UNIT for the rapture. You see it?"


"And God, in order to be--get this, couldn't come through sex, which first started the ball rolling. But He brought it through a virgin birth. Can't you see that--that first sin, what it was? Many won't agree with that, and you holler about the serpent's seed. But there it is. See?"
Here is a list of seven statements and questions made some time ago that really covers what sin was and was not, that was committed in the Garden of Eden. These help clear our thinking on the Spiritual seed of the serpent.

1. The act of sexual relations committed by whoever in the Garden of Eden was not the "sin".
2. Sin is not acts of any kind; smoking, drinking, lying, stealing, murder, and so on.
3. An act which is unbecoming is just an attribute of sin....Sin is unbelief. To disbelieve God's Word.
4. What Eve committed by act was only an attribute of her unbelief in the fullness of what God said.
5. Sin [disobedience] entered the human race when Eve disbelieved the Word of God and her act of taking the fruit was an attribute of that unbelief.
6. If the forbidden fruit was not a fruit related to your sexual birth, then why did Jesus say, "Ye must be born again?" Also, He said, "That which is born of flesh is flesh". If there's nothing wrong with your first birth, why do we have to have a second birth that is spiritual?
7. If Blood, hemoglobin, had no part in the fall, then why did Jesus have to shed Pure "nonsexual" Blood for our sanctification and washing?


"Man could not directly come and partake of that Tree of Life in the midst of the garden. That Eternal Life of the Tree had to become flesh first. But before God could raise and save a sinner, He had to have a sinner to raise and save. MAN HAD TO FALL. The fall which would be caused by Satan, had to have flesh to make fall. Satan had to come through flesh also. But Satan could not come through human flesh to make the fall as would Christ come tin human flesh to restore the fallen. But there was an animal , the serpent, so close to man that Satan could get to that beast and through that beast he could get to human flesh and cause the fall, and inject himself thereby into the human race, even as Jesus would one day come and inject Himself into the human race, into human bodies, even to the extent of a resurrection wherein we would have bodies like unto His glorified one. Thus what God worked out here in the Garden was His predestinated plan. And when Satan had brought about that which was necessary to the purpose of God, then man could not get to the Tree of Life in the Garden. Certainly not. It wasn't time. But an animal [animal had caused the fall had it not? let animal life be shed] was taken and his Blood shed and then God had communion with man again. Then there was to come a day when God would appear in flesh, and by means of His humiliation He would restore fallen man and make ham a partaker of that Life Eternal. Once you see this, you can understand the serpent seed and know that it was no apple Eve ate. No, it was the degradation of humanity by intermingling the seed."

What Satan did in the garden affected all flesh not just some. In other words some can not be serpent's seed and others not be, because all the natural Serpent's seed was cut off at the flood in Noah's time. All flesh is fallen flesh because it is the seed of unbelief that Satan was able to sow into the entire human race. Now we must be born again and as Jesus was the bearer of Life by the Spoken Word so we must receive Life by being Born Again. Jesus was the Beginning of the "Creation of God" and if He was the beginning then there are others to follow.

Now we, as the Bride, will have an entire Honeymoon to spend in the millennium where we are changed and walking in a perfect Glorified Body where the fullness of our Lord will continually be Revealing the perfection of the Word and how His Spirit of Life and Love brought us through. Now let us see how the Prophet shows us to be the New Creation, Born Again as a brand new race.


"But now He is standing in the midst of the Church. As he stands there revealing Who He is in this last age, He calls Himself the "Author of the Creation of God". This is ANOTHER CREATION. This has to do with the church. This is a special designation of Himself. He is the CREATOR of that church. The Heavenly Bridegroom created His Own Bride. As the Spirit of God, He came down and created in the Virgin Mary the cells from which His body was born. I want to repeat that. He created the very cells in the womb of Mary for that body. It was not enough for the Holy Spirit to simply give life to a human ovum supplied by Mary. That would have been sinful mankind producing a body. That would not have produced the "Last Adam". Of Him it was said "Lo a body hast thou [Father] prepared for Me." God [Not Mary] provided that body. Mary was the human incubator and she carried that Holy Child and brought Him to birth. It was a God-man. He was the Son of God. He was of the NEW creation. Man and God met and joined; He was the first of this new race. He is the head of this new race."

Collossians 1:18,
"And He is the head of the body, the church; Who is the beginning, the first-born from the dead; that in all things He might have the
pre-eminence. "
II Corinthians 5:17,
"Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation, old things have passed away, behold all things are become new."
[There you can see that through man was of the OLD ORDER or creation, now in UNION WITH CHRIST, he has become the NEW CREATION of God.]
Ephesians 2:10,
"For we are His workmanship CREATED IN UNION WITH CHRIST JESUS unto good works."
Ephjesians 4:24,
"And that ye put on the NEW MAN which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness."
"Hallelujah" Aren't you glad that you belong to Him!"

[A New Creation by the Seven Thunder Voice of God that satan cannot touch]

"This New Creation is not the old creation made over, or it could not be called a new creation. This is exactly what it says it is, "NEW CREATION".

It is another creation, distinct from the old one. No longer is He dealing by ways of the flesh. That was how He dealt with Israel. He chose Abraham, and of Abraham's issue through the godly Isaac line. But now out of every kindred, tribe, and nation He has purposed a new creation. He is the first of that creation. He was God created in the form of man. Now by His Spirit He is creating many Sons unto Himself. God the Creator, creating Himself a part of His Creation. This is the true Revelation of God. This was His purpose. This purpose took form through Election. That is why He could look right down to the last age when all would be over and see Himself still in the midst of the church, as author of this New Creation of God. His Sovereign power brought it to pass. By His own decree He elected the members of this New Creation. He predestined them to the adoption of children according to the good pleasure of His will. By His Omniscience and Omnipotence He brought it to pass. How else could He know that He would be standing in the Midst of the church receiving glory from His brethren if He did not make sure? All things He knew, and all things He worked out according to what He knew in order that His purpose and good pleasure be brought to pass."

Without an Understanding of the sin in the Garden there can never be a clear revealing of why, how, and who must have a Word Birth on the Revelation God sent through a Prophet in this hour. Living just on the experiences and partial Revelation of the Church Ages is not enough now, for we must now be birthed on the full word Understanding sent through the End-Time Messenger. To put off to another Hour the full manifestation that the revealed knowledge that the Word brings is worse as not knowing the Truth. "To him that knoweth to do good and doeth it not, to him it is sin" Now sin will never be imputed to God's Elected but the Elected quickly and gladly receive and walk in the totality of the Prophet's Message. Spiritual non-seed will always argue and try to explain away what True Revelation clearly reveals.
Satan despises the Word of God but the two books of the Bible that he hates more than any other is the book of Genesis that reveals his beginnings and the Book of Revelation that records his end. When dealing with Satan and his works always remember that he is a defeated foe.


"Now in the Garden of Eden there were two trees standing in the midst of it. One was the Tree of Life, the other was the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Man was to live by the Tree of Life; but he was not to touch the other tree or he would die.-------- -Now that Tree back there in Eden, that Tree which was the source of life, was Jesus.------ --He showed Himself as the GREAT I AM. He is the Bread of Life, The Well of Life, the Eternal One, the TREE OF LIFE. He was back there in Eden in the midst of the garden even as He will be in the midst of the paradise of God."------- If the Tree of Life is a person, then the tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil is a person ALSO. It can't be otherwise. Thus the Righteous One and the Wicked One stood side by side there in the midst of the Garden of Eden. Ezekiel 28:13a "Thou [Satan] hast been in Eden, the garden of God."

As we look at this part of the Revelation we must dismiss from our minds the image of literal trees standing in the Garden because this is the image Satan has used through the ages to bring the thought of the eating of a natural fruit. Trees throughout the Scripture are shown to be persons. Psalm one proclaims that a righteous man is like a tree planted by the river of waters. David cries in the Psalms again, "rejoice all ye trees". The Lord Jesus is called "The Branch" in prophecy and then in the Message, "Restoration of the Bride Tree" the entire Bride Body is pictured as a tree for the very Life of Christ flows throughout her from root to the smallest leaf.

John the Baptist reveals the Spiritual understanding of trees when he stomps out from the wilderness declaring that, "The axe is laid to the root of the Tree". Therefore to "eat from the tree of Life" was to become one with the very Life of Christ, Himself. This was Eternal Life. Adam never was able to become one with the Life of the Tree for when sin entered the Garden, Adam and Eve were driven out.
The Angels with the firey, blazing swords, would not let anyone come close or partake of the Life of that Tree. Brother Branham told us that if Adam and Eve had not been separated from the presence of the Life Tree that hey could have Spiritually eaten and lived forever in a fallen condition. Now we can look at both the natural and Spiritual part of the true Revelation of the Serpent's Seed.


"Here is where we receive the true Revelation of the "Serpent's Seed". Here is what really happened in the Garden of Eden. The Word says that Eve was beguiled by the serpent. She was actually seduced by the serpent. It says in Genesis 3:1, Now the serpent was more subtil that any beast of the field which the Lord had made." This beast was so close to a human being [and yet was pure animal] that he could reason and talk. He was an upright creature and was somewhat in between a chimpanzee and a man, but closer to a man. He was so close to being human that his seed could, and did mingle with that of the woman and cause her to conceive. When this happened, God cursed the serpent. He changed every bone in the serpent's body so that he had to crawl like a snake."

Science in the person of great men has cried out for years about the search for the creature that fits between the chimpanzee and man on their evolutionary scale. Well they and science can try all it wants to, and it won't find the missing link. God saw to that. Man is smart and he can see an association of man with animal and he tries to prove it out of evolution. There isn't any evolution. But man and animal did mingle. That's one of the mysteries of God that has remained hidden, but here it is revealed. It happened right back there in the midst of Eden when Eve turned away from Life to accept Death. God's curse on the serpent hid almost under their very eyes the thing that they wished to know.


"Notice the exact way the record of God sets forth the account of the births of Cain, Abel, and Seth. Genesis 4:1, "And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord. And she again bare his brother Abel." Genesis 4:25, "And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth..." There are THREE sons born from TWO acts of carnal knowledge by Adam. Since the Bible is the exact and perfect Word of God, this is no mistake but a record for our illumination. Since THREE sons were born from TWO acts by Adam, you know POSITIVELY that ONE of those three WAS NOT the son of Adam. God has recorded this in this exact manner to show us something. The Truth of the matter is that Eve had in her womb TWO sons [twins] from SEPARATE impregnations. She was carrying twins, with Cain's conception sometime previous to that of Abel's. See those TWINS again. Perfect type as always.

To those who think that this is not possible, let it be known that the medical records are replete with cases where women have carried twins who were of separate ova and separate insemination with the fertilization of the eggs being days apart, and NOT ONLY SO, but some of the records show that the twins were fathered by separate males."

"And so those two sons were born. Sons that would be the fathers of the human race that was even now polluted. And what does the record say of them? Read the record. Jude 14, "And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied.. ."

Genesis 5 is the chapter of genealogy of Enoch. It gives the genealogy thusly, 1. Adam, 2. Seth, 3. Enos, 4. Cainan, 5. Mahalaleel, 6. Jared, 7. Enoch. Notice that Cain is not mentioned. The line of Adam goes through Seth. If Cain were the child of Adam, the law of the birthright would have given Cain the right of linage. Also it must be noted carefully that in Genesis 5:3, it says that, "Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, after his image, and called his name Seth."

Nowhere does it say that Cain was in Adam's likeness, yet he would have to be if he were his son, for the law of reproduction is emphatically that each brings forth after its likeness. We must also credit the fact that in both genealogies in Genesis and Luke, Cain is missing. If Cain were the son of Adam it would be said of him somewhere that, "Cain, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God." It does not say that for it CANNOT say that."

Now with this understanding we can readily see the physical access into the human race that Satan gained but more subtle is the Spiritual access that was gained by the fact that now no one could now be born by the Spoken Word Tree of Life. Life was coming forth, the human race replenishing the earth and subduing it but all by the tree that man had been forbidden to partake of. Intellect and reasoning and wisdom would now dominate the world and the just plain "Let there Be" of pure Logos life was pushed 4000 years into the distence.

God, Himself, now speaks that through false seed has now been sown both natural and Spiritual through the woman that here will be an hour when the woman will be used again. This time God's own seed would be manifested through that woman. If we look at the woman as the bringer of death to the human race we must quickly look again to see that the woman was also God's chosen vessel to be the bringer of Life itself.

First the seed being birthed through Mary to bring the Firstborn of God's new creation: The Lord Jesus who would pay the terrible penalty to overcome death, hell, and the grave. Then secondly the seed Word Life of the Son of Man to be birthed from out of the 2000 year old Bride Body to bring into manifestation all the Sons and Daughters of Faith who by receiving and walking in this End-time Message would be the perfection of God's Promise. They receive a Life Token not only for themselves but for the saints of the ages who would be all the new creation to inhabit Eternity. A bridegroom and Bride in fulfillment of God's Eternal purpose from the beginning. Look at the Promise.

"And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her Seed, it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise His heel." Two seeds, one of the serpent and one yet to come forth by the woman. There is no true student of the Bible who does not know that the Seed of the woman was the Lord Jesus Who came by the instrumentality of God, apart from human human intercourse. It is also just as well known that the bruising of the serpent's head was in actuality a prophecy concerning what Christ would accomplish against Satan at the cross. There at the cross Christ would bruise the head of Satan, while Satan would bruise the heel of the Lord. Why did all of this come to pass in this fashion? Brother Branham in his editing of the Church Age Book lays it out this way.


"Now why did this have to be so? Why was it that the seed of the serpent must come this way? Man was created for God. Man was to be the Temple of god. The place of God's rest [The Holy spirit] was man, the temple. Acts 7:46-51, "Who found favour before God, and desired to find a tabernacle for the God of Jacob. But Solomon built Him an house. Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet, Heaven is My throne, and earth is My footstool: what house will ye build Me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of My rest? Hath not My hand made all these things? Ye stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye." Satan has known this all along. He also wants to in-dwell man even as God so does. But God has reserved to Himself that right. Satan cannot do that. God alone appeared in human flesh. Satan could not and cannot do that. He does not have creative powers. The only way for Satan to accomplish what he wanted to do was to enter the serpent in Eden even as he entered by evil spirits into the swine at Gadara. God does not enter animals; but Satan can and will to accomplish his ends. He could not have a child directly by Eve as did God by Mary, so he entered into the serpent and then beguiled Eve. He seduced her and by her did Satan have a child vicariously. Cain bore the full spiritual characteristics of Satan and the animalistic [sensual, fleshly] characteristic of the serpent. No wonder the Holy Spirit said that Cain was of that wicked one. He was."

Remember in Part one we pointed directly to the fact that the act that took place in the Garden was not the sin. The sin was Unbelief and Unbelief has always been the separator between God and man. God didn't have to say one thing about what would happen. He simply gave the Word. He said not to partake of knowledge for we were to partake of life and life was the Word of God. Death is always anything that changes the Word of God in any way shape or form. Eve allowed just one Word to be changed and right then Satan had her. You can not believe part of a Message or have your way and God's way at the same time. Don't fool with that Word. That is exactly what exactly what happened in the Garden and separated man from the Tree of Life.


"And when Jesus died for sins, He died for every attribute that sin ever produced. See? So when sin was finished, it was all finished, the complete plan of redemption. So we are... If you just knock him in the head with the sin question, kill sin you kill every attribute of it. See? What is sin? Unbelief. So when you kill all unbelief, why, you know that God's Word's right, that He's the same yesterday, and forever, so all the promises are yours. Walk through the land, it's all yours. It belongs to you."


"In the garden of Eden there were two trees, one woman, and one man. All that lived by that woman die. She's a tree of death. If you was borned of a woman you die. When you're borned of a man, Christ Jesus, you live. Notice. Then Adam's Bride was defiled before he got to her. when Jesus came, He was that tree of Life. "I am the Bread of Life, the Tree of Life, come from God out of Heaven. If a man eats this, he never dies"
Then when He went away, He purchased a Bride Tree. And that tree was established, and putting in the roots of the earth on the day of Pentecost."


"Now, remember, He is that Tree of Life contrary to the serpent's seed. You see? He's that Seed, the woman's Seed, the Tree of Life in the garden. And unless they put forth their hands and move this Tree, they'd eat that Tree and live forever. And He's the only Tree that can be taken that you can live forever. His Word is Life. And that be the Word then, the Word of god which Eve turned down in the Garden of Eden, then here's Christ, the Word made manifest; and when He come on earth, He was the Tree of Life. Do you believe that? And Rome, what did they do? He had to be chopped down. And He was put on a tree of disgrace ["Cursed is he that hang on a tree"], beclome a curse for the human race. And now through that, He brings forth a Bride Tree, which will be the Tree of Life restored back to Him as Husband and Wife un the garden of Eden [Oh, Glory to God.], by the same Word and the same God made manifested as Husband and Wife: the same Bride Tree back again [notice], making it known."

God has again brought Christ the Living Tree of Life on the scene again with the Opening of the Seals. Out of the Seven Thunder Voice of God Through the Prophet the Token [Life of Christ] which is the Tree of Life spiritually back again, has again given the woman the choice of which tree to eat of. Little Bride, let us eat freely of the Tree of Life and fulfill the theme song the followed throughout Brother Branham's ministry. "Only Believe, only Believe, all things are possible only Believe"
Brother Branham spoken of wanting to bring a Message on, "The Trail of the Serpent" and many good Messages have been preached on that subject now by God's ministry. It should be so because all the needed information was given in bits and pieces throughout every Message the Man of God brought.

In Brother Branham's ministry there was a continual Spiritual inspection going on the separated the fruit from the tree of the Knowledge of good and evil and the fruit from the Tree of Life. The Word that was preached then in the Messages of the Prophet and that now is carried on by the five-fold ministry is the divider today. The true ministry is continually separating the fruit of the trees because the true ministry has learned by and teaches only by the Revelation from out of the seven Thunders [The fullness of the Prophet's Message].


"He knows that if the people get the TRUE REVELATION of the TRUE CHURCH and what she is, what she stands for and that SHE CAN DO THE GREATER WORKS, she will be an invincible army. If they get a true Revelation of the two spirits within the framework of the Christian Church, and by God,s spirit discern and withstand the antichrist spirit, Satan will be powerless before her. He will be as definitely thwarted today as when Christ withstood his every effort to gain power over Him in the desert. Yes, Satan hates revelation. But we love it. With true Revelation in our lives, the gates of hell cannot prevail against us, but we will prevail over them."
We are shown by the Prophet that the two trees in the garden were Jesus the Tree of Life and Satan the tree of the Knowledge of good and evil which always brings death. We can trace and follow the tree of knowledge down through the first 2000 years as the spirit of Satan carried the Serpent's Seed both naturally and spiritually. Just as the Spoken Word of God produced Life fruit [Adam] so the spoken word of Satan from the mouth of the Serpent produced the deception and knowledge that would produce death fruit through Eve. God brought a flood in Noah's day to slay all natural Serpent's seed but all flesh, the eight souls spared even then, being fruit from the forbidden tree [Eve], carried the spiritual Serpent's Seed of the nature of satan himself on into all the coming generations of man.


"Now, Noah and his sons which come out, Ham, Shem, and Japheth, come out in the righteous line. How did the seed ever get over? The Seed come over in the ark, just like it did in the beginning through the woman, their wives. They carried the seed of Satan through the ark, just as Eve packed the seed of Satan to give birth to Cain, through the woman."

See! Only the Male can carry the natural seed so it is the sex birth itself that makes us partakers of the Tree of Knowledge. If our first birth was alright why must all flesh be born again or be cast out? It wasn't alright for it was only permitted until Calvary could bring mankind a second birth, the New Birth.

Eve incubated that seed both naturally [sexually] and spirtually [by unbelief] and became the tree of knowledge bringing death to all living. We are all the fruit of our mother, Eve, the "mother of all living". Remember the life germ always comes from the male so the seed she accepted into her womb is what brought forth Cain and it was 4000 years later the Holy Ghost Seed bringing Jesus Christ on the scene becomes, "The seed of the Woman" and makes her the fruit tree that will produce again the Original Seed, the Spoken Word Tree of Life.


"If a man eats of the woman... And look, through the birth of--by the woman, we all die; 'cause we're subject to death [Is that right?] through a birth of the woman. Through the birth of the man, we all live forever. The woman is a tree of death; the man is a tree of life; for the woman doesn't even bear life in her. That's exactly right. The--the life germ comes out of the man [See?], correctly, goes into the woman. And the woman's nothing but a incubator; and the baby's not connected, only the navel cord. Not one speck of the Mother's blood's in the baby; borned in her blood, but not one speck in the baby."

Genesis 2:4b-5a
"The LORD God made the earth and the heavens, And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew."
Genesis 2:16
"And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 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."

When Eve was taken from Adam's side and they both literally walked out into the garden of Eden, there they saw every tree that was made on display there, except that tree that they had specifically been told about, the Tree of the knowledge of good and evil. It was missing. I'm sure they looked for it, wondering why it was not yet manifested but did not worry about it not being there, knowing that like all the other trees, this tree would show up because all had been in God's mind and promised. The other trees were there and had appeared and whatever God said, always happened. By Revelation they also knew that though they did not see it either, there was also a tree of Life to appear.
All continued well under that veil of innocence until Satan moved through the Serpent. Eve was then beguiled or defiled by the Serpent's words but was fully caught by being deceived completely.She really thought she had found the way to the Tree of Life not realizing she had produced the tree of the knowledge of good and evil on the scene by becoming that tree herself.

Adam was not deceived. Immediately he recognized the tree for what it was and just as the Lord Jesus would 4000 years later, out of pure Love laid his very being into the only deed and act that could cover and protect Eve, placing his own seed Life into her womb. Then with both their eyes wide open and seeing what the tree was, they covered their loins with aprons and ran and hid themselves from their Creator.
When God came down to talk to His children he found them already walking in guilt and remorse. He did not slay them but instead covered them with the bloody skins of animals that were slain for them. He cursed not His children but only cursing Satan and then the Earth He told Adam and Eve that the fruit of the tree that they had eaten from would greatly increase it's fruit and produce vessels of flesh of both good and evel. Yet hope was given, a covenant was set by God's Word to the woman that the "seed of the woman" would yet produce the Tree of Life.

Remember, the Prophet said that the man, himself, is a tree of life, and the creative process of the Tree of Life would have been produced in Adam, himself, had he only waited to be fully joined and one with the Spirit of Life which was God, Himself. The One who had so freely walked and talked with him in the cool of the day, would have used him to play his part in producing the manifested Children of God. Yet hope was given, a covenant was set by God's Word for the woman's part to play in the redemption of mankind. With obedience to God's instructions the "seed of the woman" could yet produce the Tree of Life.

Now we all know the story of the Lord Jesus and how "The Branch" was manifested for all mankind that those who were obedient to the Word could come into manifestation as the Children of God. However it would take the very bearer of Life dying on the Old Rugged Cross of death to give His own self as the sacrifice for the sin of the world. That was 2000 years ago. The Prophet for this hour, Brother William Branham, gave us the understanding of the restoration of the Bride Tree. PRAISE GOD, the "Tree of Life" has once again come into "full manifestation. "

TRIAL (Quote)

"We pray today, Lord, as we have see ourselves partakers of the woman tree and we all must die because there is no life in the woman, now also, Father, we've been given the priviledge to partake of the Man-Tree, which was Christ. And now, through Him we have Life, Life, the Word be made Life among us. Grant, Lord, that these things will become such a reality to the Church, that they will see, and we'll understand the hour we're living."


"Now, remember, He is that Tree of Life contrary to the serpent's seed. You see? He's that Seed, the woman's Seed, the Tree of Life in the garden. And unless they put forth their hands and move this Tree, they'd eat that Tree and live forever. And He's the only Tree that can be taken that you can live forever. His Word is Life. And that be the Word then, thge word of Godf which eve turned down in the garden of Eden, then Here's christ, the Word made manifest; and when He come on earth, He was the Tree of Life. Do you believe that? And Rome, what did they do? He had to be chopped down. And He was put on a tree of disgrace ]"Cursed is he that hang on a tree"], become a curse for the human race. and now through that, He brings forth a Bride Tree, which will be the Tree of Life restored back to Him as Husband and Wife in the garden of Eden [Oh , Glory to God], by the same Word and the same God made manifested as Husband and Wife: the same Bride Tree back again [notice], making it known."

Now as we close this understanding of the two trees, where is the tree of Knowledge and the tree of Life today? Answer: In the heart of man. We are the fruit {Remember the fruit carries the seed in it] born naturally with the nature of Satan, the life of the tree of Knowledge controlling our very being. The Prophet said that old nature had to be destroyed or annihilated and that we became a brand new Creation becoming one with the New Nature which is Christ, Himself.
All flesh is the manifestation of the Tree of the Knowledge of good and Evil. By the Word Birth the Elect become the manifestation of the tree of Life restored back to the Garden of Eden condition before sin entered. He's in Flesh again, Christ, the Tree of Life, is now our manifestation. That Life now from inside out manifests in our Theophany body and will change this Flesh Body into a Glorified Body, just like His.


"I'll go with you, and I--you'll be part of Me; you'll be my Bride. My Life will be in your body. Just like a husband and wife is one person, you and I are going to be One. "At the day you'll know that I'm in the Father, the Father in me, and I in you, and you in Me." Hmm, I just love that. Satan just gets so angry at that. See? See the Oneness of God? All that God was, He poured into Christ, and all that Christ was, He poured into the Church. There you are. It makes them all one. Now, look. Now, THE BRIDE ARE ONE, THE TREE OF LIFE. In other words like husband and wife is one, Christ and His Bride are One: same thing, same Spirit, same workds, same signs, everything else."


"The church will come through justification, through Luther; through sanctification, through Wesley; through the baptism of the Holy Ghost, of the Pentecostals; and grow right on into the perfection of the Son of man, that when Husband and Wife will be the same-self persons. God will be so manifested into His Bride, His church, till they'll both be the same. They are one. Now, you see where we're at."


"Blessed art thou [See?], son of Jonas, flesh and blood never revealed this to you, but My Father which is in Heaven has revealed It. Upon this Rock I'll build My church; the gates of hell can't prevail against It. And I give unto thee the keys. Whatever you bind on earth, I'll bind it in Heaven; what you loose on earth..." That's that Divine revelation of the Word made Flesh. If it was Flesh in that day by the son, the Groom, it's of Flesh today by the Bride."
