TITLE: IT’S MANIFESTING TIME TEXT: Matthew 13:24-30 & 36-43
We have in the text two seeds that are people, bad seeds and good seeds. The good seed is that which the word has produced – 1 Peter 1:23 “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God…” The bad seeds are the children of Satan.
The field is the world of men. It is in God’s wheat field that Satan begins his work. He sows children of the wicked one, who profess to be children of God and in outward ways are like the true children that only the angels in the end can be trusted to separate. Brother Branham said the bad seeds are seeds of discrepancy sowing discord in the church.
So great is Satan’s power of deception that the tares often really suppose themselves to be children of the Kingdom. But it will only be made manifest to them at the end that they were not God’s seed.
Matt 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
It is a mingling of the true and false. Those that truly believe and those that profess but do no possess what they profess. Notice – Only religious unbelievers are called children of the devil (John 8:38-44).
It is at the endtime they are gathered to their place and both identified – a manifesting time. Like the song, “It’s manifesting time, the fruit is on the vine and the lovely one is coming in plain view.”
WHAT DID WILLIAM BRANHAM SAY?
61-0723E GOD.BEING.MISUNDERSTOOD_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN Did not Jesus say, when the fields was planted, “Let them all grow up together, the tares and the wheat together. Don’t you try to pull up the tares. Don’t you try to judge them; just let them grow together. And at that day the angels will be sent forth; they will take all the tares and burn them, and the wheat will be gathered into the garner”? But by their fruits we know them. You can know in your heart. Keep trying to deal with that person.
PHILADELPHIAN.CHURCH.AGE – CHURCH.AGE.BOOK CPT.8 The seventh age (a very short age) gathers up into itself for one quick work, all the evil of every age, and yet all the reality of Pentecost. Once the Philadelphian Age has about run its course, the Laodicean Age quickly comes in, bringing both the tares and the wheat to harvest, “First bind the tares to burn them; but gather the wheat into my barn.” Matthew 13:30.
Remember, please, that the Sardisean Age started the reformation that must still go on until the grain that was planted at Pentecost goes through the full cycle of planting, watering, nourishing, etc., until it comes right back to original seed. While this is going on, the tares that were sown will have to go through their cycle and be harvested also. That is exactly what we see happening. If you can just think of the seasons, you can get a very good picture of this. The plant that you see growing in full strength in summer suddenly appears to be going to seed. You can’t tell exactly when summer became autumn–it just faded into it. That is how the ages are, and especially these last two.
56-0603 THE.LAMB’S.BOOK.OF.LIFE_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN But there is a real segregation time: right from wrong. God separates His people, calls them out. Do you know that very word “church” means “segregated, called out, separated”? Amen. “Come out from among them,” says the Bible. “Be not partakers of their sin and of their uncleanliness. And I will receive you unto Myself, and you’ll be sons and daughters unto Me. And I’ll be God unto you. Come out.” It’s a separating time. And so much the more as you see this day approaching…
62-0908 PRESENT.STAGE.OF.MY.MINISTRY_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN See, the time comes, friends. And I want the people in the land that the tapes goes to, to remember that the separating time has to come. It must do it. I don’t know how far I am from the end time, my end of the road. I don’t know. That’s up to God. I don’t know what tomorrow is, and who… I don’t know what it holds, but I know Who’s holding it. So that’s where my faith is built, on that.
55 Now, I imagine Demas didn’t forsake him and start off to nightclubs. I don’t imagine Demas did that, ’cause Demas was a Spirit-filled man. He was a great helper. If you ever took the history of Demas, he was a notable preacher, a fine cultured man, highly polished, educated. He was a smart man. But why would he forsake Paul? That’s the thing. What made him do it, forsake Paul? I don’t believe he wanted to go to a nightclub or anything. But I believe it was God separating Paul. Now I imagine Demas…
62-0211 ONENESS_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN God’s gathering the Elect from the four winds of the earth. He said He’d send angels and gather them. Is that right? Gather them together, separate them from the tares. Amen. The tares will be burnt, not the wheat. Right.
200 But, they’re so headstrong [Stiffnecked, Stubborn], they’re going to have it or not, don’t make any difference. Oh!
201 But God’s chosen Ones are commanded to come out from among them. “Be ye separated,” saith God, “and I will receive you. Touch not their worldly things, and I’ll be a Father to you, or God, and you’ll be My sons and daughters. Yoke yourself not up with unbelievers, but come out of it!” God wants separation from the world. He wants to be unionized with you, Himself. And no man-made scheme of organization, denomination, or any man-made theories will ever stand.
CAIN’S SEED AND ADAMS SEED THAT FOLLOWED.
Gen 4:16 And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.
61-0402 THE.TRUE.EASTER.SEAL_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN And now, we find out, as soon as Cain realized that he had did what he did, well, he went out from the Presence of God, and was sealed away from God by a mark was placed upon him. He went out, the Bible said, from the garden of Eden, from the gates of the garden, east of Eden. He went out sealed, marked, went out from the Presence of God.
65-1031M POWER.OF.TRANSFORMATION_ PRESCOTT.AZ Let’s take Genesis now, 4 – And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD,…
145 Now watch the first thing he done. (You tell me when you think we got enough here, ’cause I’ll just stop on this anywhere.) See, “Cain went out from the Presence of the Lord.” There he made his mistake. And there is where you will make a mistake, and there is where I’ll make the mistake, the very minute we walk out of the Presence of God.
… Cain went… from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.
146 See how religious it was, went around to the “East” side, East side.
CONTINUED … Now notice, as soon as they went out from the Presence of the Lord, they started building cities, they started making instruments; they started in science, to making brass and iron, and–and playing music, and so forth. See? See? Now where did it come from? Who went out? Cain, the serpent’s seed. You understand it? [Congregation says, “Amen.”-Ed.] Cain went out. And, notice, he went out from the Presence of the Lord, and started working in science.
148 Now look where he is still working, see: science, education, cities, culture. It’s of the Devil. Who started it? The Devil. Who is it of today? The Devil. Atomic bombs and things, to destroy us with. We live in it. We have to live here. We are a being, we have to stay here. But God’s great civilization won’t have any of that in it. See? And science is taking–is taking the natural things and perverting it to do things that it wasn’t intended to do.
149 And so is scientific religion! It takes the Word of God and makes a church organization out of it, instead of doing the things that it’s supposed to do.
Gen 4:25 And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew. 26 And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD.
ADAM’S SEED WAS HUMBLE AND CONTINUED THE LINE TO THE MESSIAH.
1) Adam 2) Seth 3) Enos 4) Cainan 5) Mahalaleel 6) Jared 7) Enoch 8) Methuselah 9 Lamech 10) Noah
[By some especial providence, the family of Adam, Seth was chosen; in the family of Noah, Shem; in the family of Abraham, Isaac, and in that of David, Solomon and Nathan. All these things God watched over by an especial providence from the beginning, that when Jesus Christ should come it might be clearly seen that he came by the promise, through grace, and not by nature.] – from Adam Clarke’s Commentary.
RUTH AND ORPAH THE DAUGHTER IN LAWS OF NAOMI OF BETHLEHEM.
Ruth 1:14 “And they lifted up their voice, and wept again: and Orpah kissed her mother in law; but Ruth clave unto her. 15 And she said, Behold, thy sister in law is gone back unto her people, and unto her gods: return thou after thy sister in law. 16 And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God: 17 Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the LORD do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me. 18 When she saw that she was stedfastly minded to go with her, then she left speaking unto her. 19 So they two went until they came to Bethlehem.”
You never heard of Orpah the Moabite again, but Ruth married the wealthy Boaz, a near kinsman to Naomi and from the union came Obed, Jesse, King David and evintially Christ. It was truly manifested who was the true seed by her desire to follow the Word at all cost!
WHO ARE YOU?
The word bringing you to the RAPTURE will make the difference – it’s MANIFESTING TIME!
Christ has been fully manifested as promise and so has our enemy. Our manifestation is found in one or the other. At the end all is made known!
