SUNDAY, JULY 3, 2022

 

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Thank you very much, missionary Miguel Bermudez Marin, may God continue to bless you greatly; and also to all the ministers and brethren who are watching us through the Amazonas satellite or Internet, and those who are also present here.

May God speak to our hearts this morning through His Word, and may we leave here filled with the blessing of the Most High.

Ephesians, chapter 4, verse 30.

30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:

32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

[JBP] The topic that we will be reading (some Scriptures), and the message afterwards, that we will be hearing, is:

 

TITLE: THE MYSTERY OF REDEMPTION

Base Scripture: Ephesians 4:30

THE FRUIT OF A SPIRITUAL DECISION
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Friday, December 4, 1998
(Third activity)
Bogota, Colombia

In the time of the barley is where the first fruits are taken, and from the barley is where the sheaf is waved.

And now, we can see that that time is very important, because it is the time of the beginning of the harvest. At the beginning of the harvest is when the first fruit or the first fruits are taken, a waved sheaf is prepared, and it is presented to God. And that waved sheaf of the first fruits represents Christ.

Now, notice that this story of Ruth’s life, this story of Naomi and Ruth’s life is very important, because it is a story that represents Christ (who is represented in Boaz), it represents the Hebrew people (whom is represented in Naomi) and it represents the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ (who is represented in Ruth).

That is why this story of Ruth, Naomi and Boaz is so important, because here Christ and His Work as Kinsman Redeemer is reflected, who redeemed the Hebrew people and His gentile Church; which was represented when Boaz as kinsman redeemer redeemed Naomi; and therefore, in that work that he carried out there in Israel, he automatically redeemed Ruth.

Because Ruth belonged to whom? To Naomi, she was part of Naomi; and that is why, notice, she returned with Naomi, that is, she went with Naomi to the land of Israel, and lived there until she died; but she became one of the important women in the history of the Hebrew people.

And through her, Boaz had a son named Obed, which means ‘worshiper’ (let’s see: it means ‘worshiper’). And Obed had a son named Jesse, and Jesse had a son named David; and David means ‘beloved.’ And that offspring continued from David, by which the Messiah came, being born through a virgin descendant of King David.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the book of The Seals, on page 71 [page 86 in Eng.] of the message “THE BREACH,” it says:

[133] Now look. The Book…

134 The Book of Ruth gives a beautiful picture of this, how Boaz… And Naomi had lost the estate. You, you know. You heard me preach on it, haven’t you? Raise your hands up if you heard me preach it. So, you understand, see. Boaz had to become a redeemer. And he was the only one that could. He had to be a kinsman, a near kinsman. And, in redeeming Naomi, he got Ruth. That was Jesus, Boaz typing Christ. And when He redeemed Israel, He got the Gentile Bride. So then, you see, so very beautiful! We have it on tape, I’m sure, here somewhere, you’d like to have it.

[WSS] «Boaz – Jesus / Naomi – Israel / Ruth – gentile Bride».

[JBP] On page 72:

135 Now notice, now, He must be Kinsman. So, you see, an Angel couldn’t do it. A man couldn’t do it; it must be a man, but he can’t be born of a woman, a sex act. So, the virgin birth, the Holy Spirit overshadowed Mary. Therefore, Jesus was not a Jew. Jesus was not a Gentile. Jesus was God. That’s exactly. His Blood didn’t come from any sex act. He was the holy, created Blood of God. And we’re not saved by Jewish blood, neither are we saved by Gentile blood. “We’re saved by the Blood of God.” That’s according to the Bible. It says so. “We’re saved by…”

136 So, you see, Jesus was God. He was not no third Person, fourth Person, second Person. He was the Person. He was God, see. He was God, Emmanuel. God come down from His Glory, revealed Himself.

[JBP] And right there, on page 72 [page 87 in Eng.] below, its says:

137 That’s the One met the requirement. Grace produced the Person of Jesus Christ. And we find, this Book now… God stretched His tent, come from God, to become a Man. He changed His strain, from the Almighty ([JBP] he writes: [WSS] «God stretched His Tent»), to be a Man; to take on the form of man, so He could die, to redeem man. Wait till we see Him, when there’s “nobody worthy.” See? All right.

[JBP] And he writes next to it: [WSS] «The Tent».

138 In the Bible, in the Book of Ruth, as you read it, you’ll find out, such a person was called the “goel,” g-o-e-l. Was called the goel, or, it was a person that could meet the requirements. And the goel must be [WSS] «1» able to do it, must be «2»willing to do it, and must «3» be a kinsman, next to kinsman, to do it.

139 And God, the Creator, of Spirit, became kinfolks to us when He become man, in order that He could take our sin upon Him, and pay the price, and redeem us back to God again. There it is. There is the Redeemer.

140 Christ has redeemed us now. We are now redeemed. But He has not claimed His possession yet ([JBP] and below he writes: [WSS] «the Reclamation»). Now, you might differ with that, but just hold on a minute, see. We’ll see. See? He hasn’t claimed it.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] On page 12 of the book of The Ages, it says [p. 14] [page 23 in Eng.]:

It was now time for God (Messiah) to come back to claim His bride and then present Himself (make Himself known) [WSS] «through Moses and Elijah» to Israel. Thus we see God again stepping forth to assume a physical relationship to man as the “Son of David, King of Kings and Lord of Lords, and Bridegroom of the Gentile Bride.”

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] It goes on to say here in the book of The Seals, page 73 [pages 87-88 in Eng.]:

[140] If He took the Book of Redemption, everything that Adam had and everything that he lost, Christ redeems back. And He has already redeemed us. But He hasn’t took the possession yet; He cannot until the time appointed. And then will come the resurrection, and then the earth will be renewed again. And then He’ll take possession, His possession which He got when He redeemed us, but will do it at the appointed time. Oh, my!

141 This is described in this Seven-Seal Book that we’re talking of now. All right. The Book of Redemption, it’s all described in here. All that what Christ will do at the end will be revealed to us this week [WSS] «8th day», in the Seven Seals ([JBP] and above writes: [WSS] «The appointed time. The Book of Life = the Book sealed with 7 Seals»), if God will let us. See? All right. It will be revealed. And revealed, as the Seals break and are released to us, then we can see what this great plan of redemption is, and when and how it’s going to be done ([JBP] and he writes: [WSS] «Leviticus 25:8-13»). It’s all hidden in this Book of mystery here. It’s sealed, got up with Seven Seals, and so the Lamb is the only One Who can break them.

[JBP] And he writes next to it: [WSS] «What Christ will do (in the end) is explained in the Seals».

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He goes on to say here in the Bible study, page 2:

(Next Sunday, the brethren at the printing house should have this message for the brethren; it is good that they have it in its entirety, the one of “THE MYSTERY OF THE TWO CONSCIENCES TOGETHER,” so that they have it printed; it has a very important content).

It says [Bible study]:

 

THE MYSTERY OF THE TWO CONSCIOUSES TOGETHER
(Ministers Meeting)
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Saturday, November 8, 1997
Asuncion, Paraguay

The human being has two consciences, called the conscious and the subconscious. And science says that the human being only uses 10% of his brain, because the other 90% is unconscious, it is not conscious. And if the human being with only 10% of consciousness has achieved so many things, how would it be with a little more, and how would it be with one hundred percent [100%]?

Now, see how that can only be possible with the union of both consciousnesses; and so the conscious takes from the subconscious what is in the subconscious and makes it conscious; and if a person has both consciences together, then he will be able to use more than 10%, depending on how much he takes from the subconscious.

Now… the conscious is and pertains to the spirit of the person, and the subconscious pertains to the soul of the person. And that is why there are people who are not aware of the reason for their existence here on Earth.

And that is why the Word has to be sown where? There in the soul, in the subconscious of the person; there the person believes it; and then, notice, that mystery of salvation becomes conscious for the person.

Because the person, unless he believes it in his soul, it does not become a reality, and the person does not become aware of that great blessing that Christ won for us on Calvary’s Cross.

For people it usually becomes something historical; but when the person has believed it in his soul: it has become a reality in the life of each person and produces benefits for that person.

God has in His Program that the human being has both consciousnesses together.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] There is a part here in the book of Quotations that tells us, on page 85, paragraph 726, it says (it is an excerpt taken from the book of The Seals):1

726 – “[69] The Bible… You’re putting your Scripture down. Ephesians 4:30, said, ‘Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed until the Day of your Redemption.’ Hold that word, ‘redemption,’ see. Until the day that the Book of Redemption has been revealed ([JBP and he writes above: [WSS] «until the Day of Redemption, until the day of the opening of the 7th Seal»), and the Redeemer comes to claim His possession! […] 70 Seal signifies a ‘finished work.’ And when the Seventh Seal is broken, the mystery of God that’s sealed in these mysterious Seals is finished. Until the day that Seal is broke ([JBP] that is, the Seventh Seal is the Second Coming of the Lord), and then it’s revealed what’s on the inside of It. […] 75 Now notice, now, this Book is sealed. And—and you are sealed, with the Book, until the Day of Redemption. 76 Again, in Romans 8:22 and 23. […] ‘For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.’ 77 Oh, my! Oh, my! Don’t that make us old folks feel good? It ought to make us all feel good, waiting for this hour. We understand this will take place at the first resurrection.”

[JBP] And he writes:

[WSS] «The adoption = the redemption of the body».

«Sealed until the day the 7th Seal is opened».

[JBP] And in 727, he says:2

727 – “[140] If He took the Book of Redemption, everything that Adam had and everything that he lost, Christ redeems back. And He has already redeemed us. But He hasn’t took the possession yet; He cannot until the time appointed. And then will come the resurrection, and then the earth will be renewed again. And then He’ll take possession…”

[JBP] He writes there: [WSS] «The Earth will be renewed. Christ redeems what Adam lost».

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the book of The Seals, page 85 [page 103 in Eng.], it says:

251 But now in this sevenfold Book of Seals, of redemption, that the Lamb took, within Himself, was the only One Who could do it. And He took It from the right hand of Him that sat upon the Throne, now, to claim His redemptive, to claim His rights. To claim, for me and you, what He redeemed us from, to, see, back to everything that Adam lost in the garden of Eden. He has redeemed us back to that.

252 Now with the Lamb, with the Book in His hands, we are ready to ask His grace and mercy upon us, to open the Seven-Seal Book to us, and let us look a past the curtain of time [WSS] «to the Most Holy Place», just a little bit. Oh, my! Notice when He took the Book, the title deed, sealed, (just get that in your mind now), and broke the Seals of the mystery, to reveal them, to bring them to His, see, all of His redeemed subjects.

253 Now, when we hit this in the Seals, we’re going to go back there and see them souls under the altar, crying, “Lord, how long, how long?”

254 And here He is as a Mediator, on the altar, “Just a little longer, until there’s more has to suffer like you.”

255 But now He comes from here, at this last Seal. He no more Mediator. He is King now ([JBP] and the last seal is the Seventh Seal). And what does He do? If He’s a King, He has to have subjects. And His subjects is them that He has redeemed, and they cannot come before Him until He takes the rights of redemption. And now He walks forth, from a Mediator; where death put us in the grave, He comes forth with the rights. Amen.

256 “And even those who are alive and remain till His Coming [WSS] «to the Lion», shall not hinder them which are asleep. For the trumpet of God shall sound, at that last trumpet.” When the last Seal is broke, and when the seventh angel is giving his Message, “The last trumpet shall sound, and the dead in Christ shall rise. And we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them, to meet Him in the air.” He claims! He has come forth now to claim His—His possession.

[JBP] And he also wrote there: [WSS] «The Reclamation. Redeemed today to the Garden of Eden».

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He goes on to tell us here, page 2, at the bottom [Bible study]:

Adam was a man with both consciousnesses together, because he had his theophanic body, and had been placed in a body of flesh with that theophanic body; but after the fall the human being has not been able to obtain his theophanic body before coming to this Earth in the physical body; therefore, he has taken a spirit from the world and (the person) has also taken a body in the permissive will of God, begotten by a man in a woman, which is a temporary, corruptible and mortal body.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] On page 63 of the book of Quotations, paragraph 557, it says:3

557 – “148 All of God’s sons must be the same. Yes, sir. To be born of the Word [WSS] «Gospel» and Spirit ([WSS] «E.S.» [JBP] Holy Spirit, he writes), brings us back to the spoken Word again, like in John 3. See? To be born of the Water and the Spirit, what does It do? Then It brings you right back again unto the place of where you should have been at the beginning ([JBP] and he writes above: [WSS] «the redemption, born in the 6th dimension»; and he also writes below: [WSS] «the Word – the Water / the Holy Spirit – of the Spirit»). See? That’s the reason of Christ’s death, brings us right back again to (where?) sons of God.”

[JBP] And he writes in a little notebook, he writes: [WSS] «Redemption. Delivered, returned by ransom payment». That is the meaning he writes there of “redemption.”

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He goes on to say here on page 3 above [Bible study]:

But through the new birth, through believing in Christ as our Savior and washing our sins in the Blood of Christ: we receive the Spirit of Christ, we receive the theophanic spirit of the sixth dimension, which will also be living in the new body that we are to have.

And there will be both consciousnesses together; and there will be the mind…, let’s say, the mind of the soul and the mind of the spirit together. And there the human being, you see, will bring out of his soul all the things that he will have during the Millennial Kingdom and during eternity; this is for those who will reach the stature of a perfect Man.

Now, notice, from the human being —from there, the soul— things come out, good things and bad things come out, and good things or bad things materialize to people in life; but they do not understand how this mechanism is working.

(…) And that is why at this time now, the Church of Jesus Christ can be speaking the things that are to happen —that is, she is prophesying— through the Spirit of Christ who is in Her, in the Age of the Cornerstone, making known to us all these things.

([JBP] They are elect of God, children of God, with prophetic perception, as he spoke in the book of The Ages: [WMB] “It will require that kind of people,”4 it says there).

The Spirit of Christ prophecies through His Angel Messenger the things that are to happen, and the Church of Jesus Christ in the Age of the Cornerstone says the same thing.

That is why it says in Revelation, chapter 22, verse 17:

“And the Spirit and the bride say, Come.”

See? The Spirit: Jesus Christ in Holy Spirit in His Angel Messenger, is the one who says: “Come”; and how does the Bride say?: “Come,” because she is a Church-prophet.

([JBP] Glory to God!)

Now, we can see where we are at this Last Day: where the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ is joined to the other consciousness.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] On page 137, paragraph 1219, it says [Quotations]:5

1219 – “[105] The Pillar of Fire is the Anointing. […] [114] As Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever, and also that in the last days, as it was before Lot’s time, or in Lot’s time in Sodom, so shall it be in the day that the Son of man reveals Himself again, revealing Himself. Now, in this last days the Logos that was upon Jesus, which He has become from that back to the Pillar of Fire again and has descended down on the earth to ([JBP] and there he stops, and says) (I was going to say something, but I watch the tape. They wouldn’t believe that if you told them. It wouldn’t make any difference. They… People wouldn’t believe it, but I’ll omit that) ([JBP] but we do believe it, because he wrote next to it: [WSS] «the anointing: the Pillar of Fire / the Pillar of Fire / the Logos»), but has come down for, like an investigating judgment goes on. […] 117 I am not He; I am His servant. And the Pillar of Fire is not He; It’s in Spirit form (see?) which was upon the Son of man and has come now to anoint sons of man, to bring back ([JBP] and he writes: [WSS] «prophets 4-and 5th Elijah and Moses») a ministry just exactly like He said it would be, in order for the Head and the rest of the Body to connect together.”

[JBP] And he wrote above: [WSS] «S.M. ([JBP] Son of Man) The union of the Body with the Head».

[JBP] And 1220 reads:

1220 – “‘Them without us is not made perfect,’ Paul said, Hebrews 11. ‘Without us they cannot be perfected.’ They must have this ministry to raise up the Lutheran, Wesleys, and all of them down through their ages.”

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «The perfect ministry. Without us they are not perfected».

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He continues saying here [Bible study]: 

To be joined to the Cornerstone is to be joined to the other consciousness; that is, the subconscious being joined to the conscious of the Church of Jesus Christ. To have the Age of the Cornerstone joined to the seven ages of the Church is to have the subconscious of the Age of the Cornerstone joined to the conscious of the seven ages.

And so, notice how the Church of Jesus Christ has been being built in the same way that Jesus Christ is. There is then a perfect (what?) Church being built.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the message “THE STATURE OF A PERFECT MAN,”6 there he tells us, speaking of Hebrews, chapter 11; after he read the Scripture he says:

367 You get it? These people who died, in here, are depending and waiting on us. So, this Church ([JBP] Laodicea) has got to come to perfection, in order to bring the resurrection. And they’re under, souls under the altar, waiting for this Church to come to Its perfection, that when Christ does come.

368 And this Church, you see, is coming smaller, in the minority ([JBP] that is, it becomes smaller and smaller). [Brother Branham refers to his chalkboard drawing—Ed.] It’s a whole lot sharper than that, but just like to write that cross there, see. It’s come up to a needlepoint ([JBP] and in the book of The Seals, in “THE FOURTH SEAL,” there he tells us about those of the fourth Elijah and those of the fifth Elijah). Until, the Church, in the minority, has got to get into a place until it’s the same kind of a ministry that this left, because, when this Headstone comes back…

369 It’s got a little pocket-like here, where it’s going to sit right in there, on the regular pyramid.

[JBP] He makes a little drawing of a… like a notch, where it fits. It is like a little notch, in this corner of the pyramid, and below in the corner of the Age of Laodicea he makes another notch; that is, he makes a little drawing there (you are about to see it), a little notch, as if it were a mesh, there he makes the little drawing. And in the pyramid below that he draws, he makes that mark there with a blue pen, and in red the edge of the pyramid.

It just isn’t a cap that sits across the top. It’s a little flange ([JBP] See?), and it’s got to sit on there, ’cause it sheds the water. And when it comes, this Church has got to be honed.

370 All these, rest the stones in the pyramid, are laying so perfect till you can’t run a razor blade between them, weighing tons, laying in there. How they got them up, they don’t know. But they were built.

371 And up here, when the pyramid Cap does come, the pyramid Itself, the Body of Christ will have to be honed. Not only just some creed or doctrine, or something other we come through. It’ll have to be so perfectly like Christ, till, when He comes, He and that ministry will fit right smack together. See? Then will come the Rapture, the going Home.

[JBP] And he writes there: [WSS] «Something. God in flesh», and he draws the arrow where brother Branham says: [WMB] “It’ll have to be so perfectly.”

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in the book of The Seals, on page 471 [page 562 in Eng.], look what it says here, what is going to come; because there he says: [WMB] “when He comes.” On 471 it says:

[299] And in Sabino Canyon, He said, “This is the Third Pull.”

300 And there’s three great things that goes with It. And one unfolded today, or, yesterday ([JBP] we already know what that is); the other one unfolded today; and there’s one thing that I cannot interpret, because it’s in an unknown language. But I stand right there and looked right straight at It. And this is the Third Pull coming up. [Brother Branham knocks on the pulpit three times—Ed.] And the Holy Spirit of God…Oh, my! That’s the reason all Heaven was silent.

[JBP] What is it that is going to come? The Holy Spirit, that Something that he wrote there: [WSS] «Something. God in flesh». That is why there was that silence in Heaven. And who produced it? Let’s read what he wrote there. What produced that silence? I didn’t read it to you. And brother William writes: [WSS] «The Third Pull= produced the silence». And the Third Pull is the Seventh Seal being manifested, being revealed.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] It goes on to say here, where we stayed, on page 3, at the bottom it says [Bible study]:

And so also for each member of the Mystical Body of Christ is the Program of God; to all be in the image and likeness of Christ with both consciousnesses together; and all be to the stature of a perfect Man, to the stature of Jesus Christ: to all be like Jesus Christ, the prophet of Nazareth.

“Would God that all the Lord’s people were prophets!”7 said Moses; and who else said so (Samuel did too?).

And now, you see, their desire, when they speak that way, is why? Because at some time they would all be prophets; but all of the heavenly Israel. And they reflected that with the earthly Israel: “Would God that all in Israel were prophets,” all the earthly Israel; but look, the heavenly Israel is the one that all will be prophets!, because they will all have both consciousnesses together!

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] On 254 [page 301 in Eng.], from The Seals:

180 We find out that he gets killed with the sword, too, the sword of the Word. God’s Word, sharp, two-edged sword, slays him, puts him right down. Wait till them Seven Thunders utter Their voices to that group [WSS] «Moses and Elijah with the elect» who really can take the Word of God and hand It there, It’ll slice and cut. And they can close the heavens. They can shut this, or do that, whatever they want to ([WSS] «Rev. 11 and 19» [JBP] he writes there).

[JBP] And 364 [page 430 in Eng.], it says:

[314] Egypt; blackness, darkness! 

315 God, delivering Jesus at the cross, just before He brought Him up from the resurrection. First, darkness; sun went down in the middle of the day, and stars wouldn’t shine. Two days from then, He was going to raise Him up with a mighty triumph.

316 After the sun, and moon, and stars, and everything, in Egypt, all these taken place, He delivered Israel to the promised land.

317 Here it is, in the Tribulation period, and here stands them prophets to who has the control of the Word that God gives them ([JBP] and he writes: [WSS] «Adopted ministries on Mount Zion. Moses and Elijah have the Title Deed»). They can only speak as God gives them the Word ([JBP] and he writes: [WSS] «they speak as God gives them the Word»).

318 Now, they’re not gods. They’re temporarily…Amateurly, they are, ’cause Jesus said they were. Said, “You call them gods, who the Word of God came.” But, look, that’s the ones that God brings the Word to. And when he speaks It, it happens. That’s all.

319 And here he is with a commission from God, to smite the earth, whatever he wants to (oh, my), stop the heavens. And he does. What’s the matter? He is fixing to take the hundred and forty-four thousand out, for redemption, out of the Book of Redemption. And that’s under the Seal of Redemption, in the Sixth Seal. That’s it, my dear friend. That’s that Sixth Seal; been so mysteriously.

[WSS] «The 6th Seal = the Seal of Redemption».

[WSS] «The 144,000 are in the Book of Redemption».

320 (…) Oh, there is so much on that! My, you can just keep going from place to place! But I’m afraid I’ll confuse you when I scatter too much of it. And I’m not… I can’t hold it together like I should.

321 In Isaiah, let’s take this. Isaiah, the prophet, seen this Sixth Seal open, and spoke of It; as whether It’s important, or not. See?

322 Well, the whole thing, the whole plan of redemption, lays under these Seals; the whole Book.

323 Now remember, we seen Jesus saw It. Is that right? See? Jesus saw It. And now we find others that saw It. We find It typed out in—in Jacob. We find It typed out in Egypt. We see It typed out at the cross.

324 Now let’s go back to Isaiah. I got a whole lot more prophets wrote down here, too. Let’s just…I like this, this of Isaiah. Let’s go back here to Isaiah, the 13th chapter of Isaiah. I like… 

325 Isaiah is the—the complete Bible, in Itself, you know. Did you know that? See, Isaiah starts out with creation; in the middle of the Book he brings John; and at the end he brings the Millennium. And there is sixty-six Books in the Bible, and sixty-six chapters in Isaiah. It’s the complete encyclopedia, Itself.

[326] “Howl ye; for the day of the Lord is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.”

([JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «the Day of the Lord = with Moses and Elijah», and writes: [WSS] «Isaiah 13».

[JBP] And below it says:

[330] “For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun [WSS] «Christ» shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon [WSS] «the Church» shall not cause her lights to shine. And I will punish the world for their evil, and the iniquity, and the wickedness of their iniquity; and I will cause the arro-… 

331 I—I don’t know how to spell it, arro-… [Congregation says, “Arrogancy.”—Ed.] I can’t say it, see. …of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of—of the terrible—terrible.” [WSS] «this will be Moses and Elijah coming».

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He goes on to say, page 4 [Bible study]:

And if with one —Jesus Christ— look how things were with a perfect one; now, how will it be with millions who will reach that stature? That will be the most glorious thing for the glorious Millennial Kingdom and for all eternity.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And on page 77, paragraph 667, it says [Quotations]:8

667 – “190 But, God, specially upon Adam, breathed the Breath of Eternal Life [WSS] «soul», and he become an Eternal person with God. He had power like God. He was an amateur god. He was god of the earth; not God of Heaven, now. God of the earth! And some day the sons of God will again become gods.”

And he writes above: [WSS] «The children of God will be Gods again. Adam was God of the Earth».

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in the message “QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS”9 of August 23, 1964, it tells us on page 30, it says:

148 “And will there be people on earth in corporal bodies during that time ([JBP] in the Millenium)?” Yes, sir! We will have our glorified body right here on earth, eating, drinking, building houses, and—and—and living just like we do now for a thousand years. It’s a—it’s the honeymoon of the Bride and Groom ([JBP] that is, it will be a Millennial Kingdom with the elect with that eternal and glorified body).

 

ISRAEL, GOD’S CLOCK
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Sunday, May 24, 2009
Cali, Colombia

Israel, the State of Israel, is a reality and is marking the hour for the Coming of the Lord, it is marking the hour for the restoration of the Kingdom of God on Earth, it is marking the hour for the resurrection of the dead in Christ and the transformation of us who live; because Israel is God’s clock, and Christ said that when we see all these things begin to happen: let us lift up our heads, because our redemption is near, our transformation.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And it tells us on page 343 [pages 403-404 in Eng.] of the book of The Seals, it says:

118 But, now, when it comes to dealing then with Israel, in this last part of the seventieth week, He deals with them as a nation, the Gentiles are finished. The hour is soon arriving, and may be yet this—this very night, that God will completely turn from the Gentiles, altogether. Exactly! He said so. “They shall tread down the walls of Jerusalem until the Gentile dispensation be finished, the times are over.” [In English “gentes” was translated

gentiles] Yes, sir!

119 And then, “Let him that’s filthy stay filthy; let him that’s righteous be righteous.” See?

120 There is no more Blood on the seat of the—of the—of the sanct-…in the sanctuary, at all. There is no more Blood on the altar. The Sacrifice has been removed, and there’s nothing but smoke and lightning and judgment in there. And that’s just exactly what’s poured out here tonight [WSS] «the plagues». See, the Lamb has done left the…His mediatorial work. The mediatorial work has been finished, from over on the Throne. And the Sacrifice, as we’ve typed Him perfectly, the Kinsman Redeemer, the bloody Lamb that come forth. A Lamb that had been slain, a bloody One, been killed, bruised, come forth and took the Book out of His hand. That’s, the days are finished. Now He is coming to claim what He has redeemed. Amen! That just sends something through me!

121 We find out now, John said, “I beheld when He had opened the Sixth Seal, there was a great earthquake,” then all nature was interrupted. See?

122 God has been doing great things, like healing the sick, and open the eyes of the blind, and doing great work.

123 But we find out, here, that nature took a tumble, yes, all nature. Look what taken place, “The—the earthquake…

[JBP] He places there… “THE FEAST OF THE TRUMPETS,” page 31:10

187 And in the hour when I see all the churches, their great glamour, “and rich, and have need of nothing,” they say; and see them, miserable, wretched, blind; then patting you on the shoulders, want you to compromise with them. I was born for a purpose, that’s to condemn that thing and to call out. This I do.

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «I was born to condemn the thing and call out».

[The Seals]

[123] Look what taken place, “The—the earthquake; the sun went black, and the moon wouldn’t give its light; and the stars shook and fell.” And, why, everything happened, see, right at the time of the opening of this Sixth Seal. That’s when it takes place, right immediately after the announcing of those martyrs, see. The martyrs had been finished.

124 Now you see we’re right close into that hour now. We could be, at any time, see, because the Church is just about ready to take Its flight ([JBP] in the rapture). But remember, when these things happen, the Bride won’t be here. Just remember, the Bride is gone, She don’t have to go through any of it. This is a time of Tribulation, of purification of the—of the church ([JBP] that is, of the foolish virgins); it’s put upon her, for her to go through it, not the Bride. He takes His sweetheart out of the way. Yes, sir! She, done redeemed Her. See, it’s kind of a…That’s His Own selection, His Own choice, like any man takes his bride.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And also in the message “RECOGNIZING YOUR DAY AND ITS MESSAGE,”11 it says, on page 13, it says:

[59] …“blinded.” As Israel was blinded so that the Gentiles could come in, now the Gentiles are blinded so the Bride can be taken out and Israel can receive the feast of Trumpets. Just perfectly! 

60 “After two days He will revive us, or give us a revival, bringing us together, the Jews,” speaking on these Trumpets now. And He shall…“And we shall live in His sight, or have Eternal Life. See, we’ll be in His sight.” The Bible said here in Hosea, said, “And we shall live in His sight; Life, have Life in His sight.” That’s His Own Life, Eternal Life, “have Life in His sight.” 

“She that lives in pleasure [WSS] «Laodicea» is dead while she’s alive.” So we… promised that Israel again would have Life in His sight. She’s been dead, to the facts, and to the pentecostal feast.

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «open to Israel the history of the 7 Trumpets».

[JBP] Let’s continue here:

61 Now notice, carefully. “Then after two days.” Now, that didn’t mean two twenty-four-hour days, ’cause there’s been…That happened way back yonder, many hundreds of years ago. See? It meant, “two days with the Lord,” after two thousand years. Now, you know how long it’s been since that time? It’s been twenty-seven hundred years since that, ’cause in Hosea here it’s b.c. 780. 1964, see, it’s been something over twenty-seven hundred years ago. He said, “After two days, in the third day, He will revive us again ([JBP] and he writes on the side: [WSS] «on the 3rd dispensational day»), and give us Life in His sight.” There is your Trumpets coming in. That’s the hour that we’re living, the day that we’re living.

62 Now, they have been scattered, blinded, gathered, and are far into the third day. You see it? They were scattered, from Palestine, throughout the world. They were blinded, to reject the Messiah. And now they have been gathered in their homeland, ready for the Trumpets, to recognize the Atonement. As the Bible said, “When they receive It, and find Him with the nail scars,” after the Church is taken, “and they say, ‘Where did You get these scars?’ He said, ‘In the house of My friends.’” And He said, “They would separate, each family, and would cry and weep, for days, like a family that lost their only son.” Remember, that feast of Trumpets was to do that. “To weep, mourn for the killed Sacrifice,” and they had rejected It.

63 They’re in their land. They were scattered, blinded, and now gathered. And it was all under that Sixth Seal, their Seven Trumpets…sounded to gather them together, the Sixth Trumpet. The Seventh is “that Great Trumpet,” as we had last Sunday.12 The Sixth Trumpet sounded under the Sixth Seal. Just like our Sixth Seal opened, everything at the same time; only, theirs all sounded at once; where, we been two thousand years in the pentecostal feast [WSS] «Dispensation of Grace».

[JBP] And he also writes:

[WSS] «the 7th Trumpet».

[WSS] «(Under the 7th Seal) The Great Trumpet».

[JBP] What the Seventh Seal is for the Church, which is the Coming of the Lord, His Second Coming, is the Seventh Trumpet for Israel: Moses and Elijah.

[JBP] And let’s read a little bit more here, it says:

64 Now, twenty-seven hundred years since that time…

[JBP] And he writes here… Remember that brother Branham spoke in The Ages that 1977 would bring an end to the world systems and the entrance into the Millennium; and there in 1977 the Laodicean Age closed. And he writes: [WSS] «(1977) On the 3rd day = after the 2000 years of the ages» [JBP] So it is on the third day where they are going to be gathered again. He says:

64 Now, twenty-seven hundred years since that time. He said, “In the third day, we’ll be gathered again. After two days, in the third day, we’ll be gathered again, and receive Life in His sight.” Do you see the promise? The hour perfectly wrote on the wall. We see where we are living.

65 Now in the homeland, waiting for the Feast of the Trumpets, or the recognizing of the Atonement, and to wait for the Coming, to mourn for their rejection of the first time that they rejected It. They’re in the homeland for that, waiting. What are they all…Everything is positionally placed.

66 As a minister of the Gospel, I can’t see one thing left but the going of the Bride. And the Bride has to be taken away before they can recognize what’s happened. They were bound, scattered…I mean, they were scattered, blinded, and now gathered. What’s left? The Bride to be taken out of the way. Waiting for the going of the Bride, so their prophets of Revelation 11 can call them to the feast of the Trumpet, to make them to recognize what they have done.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in the book of The Seals, notice that here it says something that we have all read. On page 359 [pages 423-424 in Eng.]:

266 But Jacob said, “I—I’m not going to leave You. You, You can’t go. I’m going to stay right with You.” See? “I want things changed here.”

267 That’s that hundred and forty-four thousand, that money-scheming bunch, and things like that, when they see the true, genuine thing to get a hold of. There stands Moses, and there stands Elijah. Amen! They’ll wrestle with God until one hundred and forty-four thousand of the tribes of Israel are called out right there.

268 That’s just before the Tribulation period, see, (oh how wonderful) also, “Jacob’s trouble.”

269 Here is when the hundred and forty-four thousand is called out. They, the—the preachers, them two prophets, they preach like John the Baptist. “The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. Repent, Israel!” Repent what? “Repent from your sins, your unbelief, and turn back to God!”

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And it says, he goes on to say here [“RECOGNIZING YOUR DAY AND ITS MESSAGE”]:

[66] I mean, they were scattered, blinded, and now gathered. What’s left? The Bride to be taken out of the way. Waiting for the going of the Bride, so their prophets of Revelation 11 can call them to the feast of the Trumpet, to make them to recognize what they have done. 

67 Remember, right between those Seals, came forth the Sixth Seal. And there was a hundred and forty-four thousand, chosen and called. And between the Sixth and Seventh Trumpet, Revelation 11 appears right there exactly in line with the Sixth Seal. 

68 What to do? What was it to do? And this was to bring forth two witnesses, Moses and Elias, prophets. Which, the Jews only believe their prophets. And they’ll come forth with the sign of the prophets, and their work will be that of the prophet, for they did exactly ([JBP] and he writes: [WSS] «Moses and Elijah = will be a prophet»)

Showing one thing, that, man, when you die or whatever, when you leave this world, your nature doesn’t change [WSS] «spirit». If you’re a liar now, you’ll be a liar there. If you’re hot-headed here, you’ll be hot-headed there. If you’re a doubter here, you would be a doubter there. Men and women, it’s time to shake yourselves and to examine yourselves, and see where we are standing, for death does not change it. 

69 They had been gone for two thousand years. Moses for about twenty-five hundred years, and Elijah for ever since…Almost twenty-five hundred years has Elijah been gone, and Moses had been gone, and here they return with the same nature and do the same things. Death doesn’t do nothing to a man but change his dwelling place. Doesn’t change your nature. Doesn’t change your faith. Doesn’t change nothing in you but your dwelling place. [WSS] «Death doesn’t change your nature».

[JBP] We could continue there all that… In another study we can continue reading, what the Feast of Trumpets open for Israel is.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Page 4, where we left off [Bible study]:

Therefore, let us be with our heads lifted up to the things of God, serving God with all our hearts, ready for the redemption of the body, that is, for our transformation.

Our redemption is at hand. And the Kingdom of God, the restoration of the Kingdom of God on Earth, which will be the restoration of the Kingdom of David, is also near.

Therefore, let us be ready, let us hold firmly to Christ, the Angel of the Covenant, as Jacob held on to the Angel and did not let go until he received the blessing from Him. That is in Genesis, chapter 32, verses 24 to 32.
