1Tonight we will look at an attribute of the God Seed that is very important for the safety and security of God's Elect seed.

2That is that God's Elect Seed Will know the two spirits and will not be deceived.

3Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christ's, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

4Now, to understand this Scripture, brother Branham preached a sermon call False Anointed ones at the end time. In it he told us the key to understanding this Scripture is that they are called FALSE Christ's and FALSE prophets.

5The anointing is genuine, and they are indeed anointed prophets (or preachers of the Word), but what they are identified as is being false. In other words there is a genuine anointing but they are false to the Word. They are lying prophets, they are lying anointed ones. They are false to the Word of God. Brother Branham calls them false teachers as false prophets.

6Anointed ones at end time 65-0725M P:185 Anointed ones, christ's in the last days, but the false teachers as false prophets... Notice how striking. Now, I want you to compare this (We haven't got time to read it out.), Matthew 24:24 with II Timothy 3:8. Matthew 24:24 said "in the last days (See?) there'll come false christs, false anointed ones, false prophets, and shall show signs and wonders exactly like the real real one and shall almost deceive the very elected.

7Now, brother Branham mentioned in the quote above both Matthew 24:24 which he read and then 2 Timothy 3:8 which we can turn to in our Bibles to read for ourselves.

82 Timothy 3:1 This know also, that in 1) the last days 2) perilous times shall come.

9Notice this verse tells us a whole lot about the end-time.

101) It tells us when this will happen and
2) it will tell us what the atmosphere of this end time will be like. It will be perilous times.

11Then we read on, 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, Notice the attributes called out: self serving, self centered, self centric, and as such they will be covetous,

12Now, the word covetous means: inordinately desirous of wealth or possessions; In other words greedy.

13And not only greedy, but they will be boasters, ... That means they speaks with exaggeration and excessive pride concerning themselves.

14And of course that leads us to the next attribute of the people at the end time. They are proud, which means they have an overly high opinion of themselves. Now, we know this is totally contrary to God Seed who have only God's Opinion, and hold to God's values. In fact Scripture warns us that Pride will lead to a fall.

15Proverbs 16:18 Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.

16And because they are proud, they become blasphemers, Notice that pride leads to blasphemy. The word "blasphemy" comes from two words "blepto" and "pheme", which speaks of irreverent speech towards God and the things of God.

17And then we see a whole lot of other attributes such as "disobedient to parents", "unthankful", "unholy", 3 "Without natural affection", (there's your LGBT people) "trucebreakers", "false accusers", "incontinent", (that means they can not contain themselves concerning sexual activity) "fierce", and look at this next attribute, they are "despisers of those that are good",

18Then it tells us they are 4 " Traitors", and if we have ever witnessed this attribute we see that our Government and the globalists that run it show more of this attribute than at any time in history. Globalism is proof enough that traitors among us.

19The next attribute is "heady", And I think it is very interesting that the word means: clever; shrewd: and the definition is followed with an example of the word used in a complete sentence, "a heady scheme to win the election."

20Next we see they are: " highminded," which means they are so caught up into their own high principles, that they cannot many times see the common sense approach to solving a problem.

21Then we follow up with "lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;"

22Easter seal 65-0410 P:73 Notice, long have we.. We're losing our identification. We come on Wednesday night, some of us. Others stay home to watch "Who Loves Susie." Televisions, all kinds of worldly things, all kinds of entertainments to keep you away from church... Long have we lost it. Our seminaries, our schools, are putting out a bunch of Rickies with a whole lot of theology, and entertainment, and everything in the church to take the place of the prayer meeting. We've took dress and tried to fulfill what the modernist try to do, and bring them in. You'll never win them by that. They got more of that than you have. You ain't got no business on their ground. Let them come over on yours where the real baptism is shining, where the real power of the Resurrection...

23Marriage of the lamb 62-0121E P:52 But now, what if this woman gets married, and takes all these vows and everything, and she becomes this man's husband, and she's heir to all he's got, and so forth, and then she goes wild? she starts off on a tantrum? she starts off running after other men? Not only that, but she's sharing her love with others. A man with his wife, all the promises that they've made, and then she goes out and starts sharing her life with others, her love and her affection with others...That's what too many so-called Christians do, sharing your love with the world: playing, dancing, gambling, staying home from prayer meeting to watch television, all kinds of worldly things that's took the place of the love of God in the church's heart. She's gone on a tantrum. She's gone wild. She's gone out after other men. She's sharing her love. She'll take her tithings that she should give to the church; she'll spend it on other things out there in the world. Instead of loving God the way she should do, and living for God, and loving to come to church, you almost have to persuade her to come.

24And the Paul states, 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

25This is the church he is speaking of, so-called Christians. 67% of Americans call themselves Christians. I hate to pop their bubble but to use a word brother Branham did, "they are more of a hain't than they a saint."

26ABC NEWS stated in a survey "Eighty-three percent of Americans identify themselves as Christians. Most of the rest, 13 percent, have no religion. That leaves just 4 percent as adherents of all non-Christian religions combined — Jews, Muslims, Buddhists and a smattering of individual mentions."

27This nation would have been better off had they not claimed to be Christians, there judgment would be less severe. "Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away."

28Then Paul goes on to describe the kinds of activity these phony Christians adhere to.

296 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, (houses of worship, churches) and lead captive silly women (church people, because women in the bible is always a type of the church) laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. (why? Church people! But without the Holy Ghost, these are not God Seed, but fakers. They have just enough religion to know the difference between a carnal person and a criminal, but they haven't God the power of an endless Life.) 8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, (ran opposition to Moses) so do these also resist the truth: (religious, yet they oppose the Truth, they resists it, and it shows they have not been renewed in the minds. In fact they are ) men of corrupt minds, (This word corrupt was translated from a Greek word which means their minds have wasted away, become deprived, Shriveled or withered away, morally bankrupt.

30And these church members are) reprobate concerning The faith. (reprobate concerning THE FAITH, The Faith, The Revelation of Jesus Christ. They are reprobate, castaways, they are rejected altogether concerning the Revelation of Jesus Christ.)
9 But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.

31And I believe we are seeing this today, what has been hidden is suddenly coming into view. They don't want a Gospel with teethe, they want some something smoot, and easy to listen to. They don't want the flaming fire of the Gospel to burn out of their hearts anything contrary to God's Word. They want s a preacher that is smooth and soft and non invasive to their comfort zone.

32God's wrapped gift 60-1225 P:49 The churches didn't want Him, because He disagreed with their creed. He told them that they were, said, "You generation of vipers, you whited walls." He called them everything that could be taught of. Told old Herod, said, "Go tell that fox." And what's dirtier than a fox? What's more stinking and lowdown than a dirty old fox? Jesus said, "That's what he is." So He called black "black," and white "white." He called wrong "wrong," and right "right." So they didn't want that. The churches today don't want a pastor filled with the Holy Ghost that'll really boil out, and tell you what's right and wrong. They don't want it. They'd fire him, right quick. Deacon board would get together and turn him away, get another one will talk about their creeds.

33God's wrapped gift 60-1225 P:44 They don't want It. It'll make women act different. It'll make men act different. You'll have to bear the name of a fanatic. You'll have to take the way with the Lord's despised few. You'll have to clean up your life. You'll have to quit your meanness. You'll have to stop doing wrong, cheating, stealing, lying, committing adultery. You'll have to stop these things. And the people don't want It. Although they may know It's right, but they don't want It. It brings too much Truth to them. It uncovers their sin, so therefore, they don't want It, don't want nothing to do with It. "Keep away from It."

34In continuing our study let's turn to 1John 4:1-6 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: (And how do you try the spirits to see whether they be of God? You give them the word test.) because many false prophets (preachers and teachers) are gone out into the world. 2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

35Now, this little word is, is very important because this is not saying that every sprit that confesses that Jesus Christ had come as though we are looking back, but John is saying, Is come in the flesh, is - present tense- is come in the flesh.

36Jesus Christ the same 58-0214 P:12 We could come to the altar, and pray all night, go back and fast for ten days, and come back and pray again... We might cry; I believe in all that. That's all, all right. But we might do all that and still not be saved, until we in our heart can believe that Christ died in our stead, and reckon ourselves as sinners, and accept His righteousness. When we do that and accept Him, He stands before the Father then, to make good that confession. That's right. And the same thing by His stripes, we were healed. And what does "confess" mean? "Confess" means "say the same thing." Don't say nothing contrary, but say what He said. Then we'll be Abraham's children, which could call those things that were not as though they were, when God had said something.

37Jehovah Jireh 55-0817 P:18 It is only the love of our Father, that loves us so much that He sends His Word. He sends His ministers to preach the Word. Then He sends gifts into the church with His arms spread out, trying to get you to believe it. He wants to heal you tonight, a thousand times more than you want to be healed. But you're afraid. You go by how you feel, because you've regarded that; you've lived by your feelings. That's... Your whole life has been wrapped in that. But you must get away from that, and act on God's Word, not what you feel, not what you see, what God said, and act on that. Make a confession of that. "Confess" means "to say the same thing." And He's at the right hand of the Father with His Own Blood to make intercessions on your confession. Now, He cannot do anything for you, until first you accept it and confess it; and then He can act on it. For He's the High Priest of what you confess that He is to you. Do you get what I mean?

38Only one true living church 51-0727 P:12 And He's healed all the sick people, but it will never help them, until they confess it by faith, and believe it, and act upon their confession. "For as the body is dead without the Spirit," says James, "so is faith without works." You got to believe it and act like it. When you accept Him as your Savior, you've got to believe it and act like Him.

392 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth (that says the same things that Jesus said,) that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

40Hereby know ye the Spirit of God, every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ is come in their flesh acts like Him.

41Attitude and who is God? 50-0815 P:35 And when the inspiration of the Holy Spirit is here to inspire you, remember, God will make your body come into your confession. If you say you're a drunkard, and want a drink. Don't worry, you'll soon be one. If you say you're a sinner, and want to sin, you'll be right into it. If you say you're a Christian and believe it all along, God will bring... Your testimony will bring you right into it. If you believe in healing, and believe that God has healed you, confess it, and God will make your body obey your confession, for He's the High Priest of your confession; setting at the right-hand of the Father now with His own Blood to make intercessions for any confession upon anything that He died for. And He died to rid sin. And sickness is the result of sin. "He was wounded for our transgressions, with His stripes we are healed." Remember that. Have faith. Don't waiver. Stand on it.

42Questions and answers COD 59-1223 P:64 Now, the law of sin and death works in your flesh, but the law of the Spirit of Life works in your heart. So your heart, your spirit in your heart will make your body obey what it says do. That's exactly right.

433 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh (and does not step into that confession and Like him) is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

444 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. 5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. 6 We are of God: he that knoweth God (he that ginosko God, he that has an intimate experiential relationship with God) heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

45...15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.

461 Corinthians 12:3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

47Queen of Sheba 60-0710 P:40 The Bible said that "No man can call Jesus the Christ only by the Holy Ghost." If you've never received the Holy Ghost, you don't know that He's the Christ yet. Remember that. You're only walking towards that light. You can say, "My pastor said so." That's true. "My Bible said so." That's true. "My mother said so." That's truth. "My church believes it's the Holy Ghost." That's true, but what about you? As an individual, you don't know until you've received It. And when you receive the Holy Ghost, then you are a witness that He's alive forever more. Now, the Holy Ghost is within you; now, and then you watch Him as He works. If the Life of Christ is in you, it will produce His Life in you." The works that I do shall you do also." The same works, because it's the same life. If the life in a watermelon vine produces a watermelon, well, The next branch that comes out, it'll produce another watermelon; every time it'll be a watermelon. And if the church is really anchored in Christ, every church will write a book of Acts behind it. That's exactly right, because the first one wrote a book of Acts behind it. So, there we are.

481 John 3:7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as (or in the same way as) He (God) is righteous.

49He that doeth what is right, is right, for by their fruits you shall know them.

50Proverbs 11:5 The thoughts of the righteous are right: but the counsels of the wicked are deceit.

51Now. let's turn in our Bibles to the book of Malachi and we will read from Malachi 3:16-18 Then they that feared the LORD (there's your key to understanding this Scripture right there.) Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him (in His Presence) for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name. 17 And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. 18 Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.

52Notice the attribute of God Seed here, they will discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.

53And while we are looking at this, let me just add, there is a big difference between a man who is simply a sinner, and them who are called "wicked"

54A sinner is one who has just missed the mark, but the wicked are those who actively are bad people.

55Ezekiel 44:23-24 And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean. 24 And in controversy they shall stand in judgment; and they shall judge it according to my judgments: and they shall keep my laws and my statutes in all mine assemblies; and they shall hallow my sabbaths.

56Trying to do God a service 65-1127B P:144 Let us pray. O church, here and across the nation, listen to your humble servant this morning, will you? Look where you were at a few years ago when this first started. Now look what impersonations has capitalized on it, and great millions and billions of dollars has flowed into the organizations. See? Still away from the Word of God... Buildings and organizations is not the way God stirs His Spirit. He stirs It right into His Word to make It live. And if you were ordained from the beginning of the earth to that Word, every Word will come right on top of the Word. Like a human cell will not have one human cell, and the next the cell of a dog, and the next the cell of a cat; it'll be human cells. But it's got to have a cell first to start with. Is that right? say, "Amen." Well, if it is the Word cell to start with, the other Word cells are ordained to make it a full body. Don't be children, only in love, but be men in Spirit and in judgment. Judge ye whether I've told you the Truth or not. Judge ye whether It's the Word of God or not. Judge ye whether it's the hour we're talking about or not. Judge ye whether these things are promised. Now, are they vindicated? By things that there's not a human being in the world could do it. But it's become so common to us till we're letting it flow right on a-past us. Wait, church, wait.

57Luke 12:56 Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?

58Hebrews 5:14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

59In closing let me read from brother Branham's sermon, "Oneness of Unity".
Oneness of unity 58-0128 P:27 Just recently I could feel the spirit in the meeting. And you all who are sending your letters in as an apology for the first night or two to believed that it was some kind of a mental setup, and now you're convinced, sure, I forgive you. God does too, and the Lord bless you. Certainly. Now, when the meeting going on, a evil spirit is in the meeting, that spirit is almost harmless until it can catch somebody that it can work through. Then when it can work through, it'll certainly do damage, because it is a evil spirit. And the Holy Spirit is here, trying to find somebody to work through, and when It finds somebody to work through, It can do good. See, the two spirits, their motives, objectives? Watch how it is. Watch their works. Watch their fruits. Then you can see what spirit is on you.

60Oneness of unity 58-0128 P:28 You are motivated by spirit. If you have no spirit, you're dead. And if you have a spirit, it motivates your life. And if your life bears the fruit of a Christian, it's a Christian Spirit. Now, you may be filled. Now, watch this evil spirit. When he goes out, he walks in dry places hunting a place to find rest. The Bible said he could not find it. So he says, "I will return back to where I come out of." He goes back to this person that he was once in, and he finds the house all swept, cleaned up, sanctified, all condemnation gone, oh, just a real happy believer. But it's empty, and he says, "Come here," seven other spirits, worse than he was... Will you please try to get this. The Bible said that's the truth, Jesus said it's the truth. And he comes back to this house. A man who has confessed Christ to be his Saviour, got rid of his wickedness, has quit his drinking, quit his smoking, his lying, his stealing, he has become sanctified, cleaned out. His house is all swept; He feels free. So he comes back, and he finds that house. Then he goes and gets seven other spirits worse than he was and comes into this person. And the Bible said that the last estate of a man is seven times worse than it was at the beginning.

61Matthew 12:43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. 44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. 45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.

62Let us pray...
