Eighth Day = the day of vengeance
Eighth Day = the day of vengeance
Good afternoon, missionary Miguel Bermudez Marin and all the ministers, brothers and sisters, who are gathered there in Matamoros, Mexico, and also all those who are connected, both from Mexico and from the different countries, today, Saturday, July 23 of this year 2022.
And also all those who are gathered in the different countries, both in Mexico, as well as in all the other places, such as in Bolivia, there in La Paz, that our brother Joel Lara gathered there with a group and also in Peru with our brother Bruno; also in Panama, with our brother Ariel; and also in Brazil with our brother Oswaldo; in Chile with Patricio; and all the ministers in the different places, in the United States, in Spain, in Africa, in the Dominican Republic, in Haiti, and in all the places; in Argentina also, Paraguay, Colombia, in Ecuador, Venezuela, all Central America, United States and all the places where you are gathered today glorifying the Lord and reviewing and listening to all these messages that the Lord has brought us through His Angel Messenger: William Soto Santiago, which contains everything we need to soon be transformed and be raptured.
We read in the book of Revelation, chapter 6, verse 12 and on, it says:
12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in the book of The Seals, on page 342 [page 413 in Eng.] it tells us (brother Branham, quoting this Scripture), in the last verse:
183 For the great day of his wrath is come; …who shall be able to stand?
[JBP] It’s the translation here. And brother William writes there: [WSS] «8th day = the day of vengeance».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] That would be the subject of this talk that we will have, of some excerpts that I will be reading to you, like the excerpt from the message:
THE VISION OF THE TABERNACLE
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Thursday, June 17, 1976
It says that those who went out of step were looking back, to where? To the age that had already passed, the Laodicean Age; and it says that they were going up. “Looking down,” is looking to Laodicea, see?
Then only God can do a miracle to place us in step, so that we walk as we should walk in the Age that corresponds to us and in the dispensation that corresponds to us.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Remember, that was at that time, in 1976; which at that time (from 74 to 77), we see that now in this time is a repetition of that time span in which there brother William was bringing all those things to the people of God.
That dispensational intertwining was beginning there, in which he was calling the people not to look back to the Laodicean Age; but rather, it was already a Message to go up, to go up to the Age of the Cornerstone.
And aware that within the Age of the Cornerstone we have been traveling through those seven stages or ages that were represented in the seven stages or ages of the gentile Church…, we have traveled through those seven stages within the same Age of the Cornerstone, which are those Seven consecutive Thunders: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven; which there brother Branham in the book of The Seals, in the message “THE SEVENTH SEAL,” relates it1 (and later you can look it up and read it), where those seven consecutive stages are traveled through.
And the people are being called not to look back, to those past ages that have passed, both of the Church ages, of some of the messengers, as well as within the Age of the Cornerstone, not to look back to those ages that have already passed; because when brother Branham there is relating that part, where he was in that vision, where he saw that vision of the Bride, he wasn’t here; in other words, he was already there in the sixth dimension and from there he was looking at what was happening in our time.
In the message “THE MASTERPIECE,”2 it tells us on page…, from page 41, it says:
192 And there she went. And they were singing this here twist-and-roll songs, you know, or ever what you call, going down, singing that and going by. I said, “Is that the Church?” And I was standing there, and in my heart I was crying. And, this witch, to my notion it’s nothing else in the world but she’s a… She is that World Council of Churches, leading them right straight down the road where she was going. They went off to the left, and disappeared in chaos [WSS]«the left, the church» ([JBP] he writes above); still beating this music and making real funny sounds, and shaking their bodies, one side and then the other side. And then, like that, carrying on like that, walking.
193 And I just started to bow my head, and He said, “Wait, the Bride must come again.” And I looked, and here they come again. And they passed…
([JBP] And he makes a drawing of the Stone, of the ages, of the Cornerstone; he makes a drawing of the bottom part and the Cornerstone drawn above; and a little arrow from there, where brother Branham writes: [WMB] “the Bride must come again,” from there comes a little arrow towards the Cornerstone.
 And they passed by, a sweet-looking little ladies. They was all looking right at me, as they passed by ([JBP] and he writes beside it): [WSS] «The Bride comes when the ages end». And I noticed each one was dressed different. And one in the back had kind of long hair hanging down, and had it rolled around like this; might have been German or something like that. And I watched them. And then as they started leaving, two or three of them, in the back, kind of get out of step, and I was going to holler at them. And they was trying to get back in step again. And I seen them, just the vision just fade out and change, from me.
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «two or three out of step towards the right». «(maybe Germany, Europes)».
194 Now here is the interpretation thereof. The reason…Now, remember, I had just got through writing… I hadn’t finished, I hadn’t wrote these notes yet. But in preaching, this morning, I caught what it was, right in my sermon. Did you notice, the church only came in view… Now, that’s the Truth, friends. The Heavenly Father, Who writes the Word, knows that I tell the Truth. See? I know I just say the Truth. And not knowing it till just a few minutes ago, looked like, or just recently, see. Did you notice? The Bride come in view twice; the first Seed and the second Seed, both of them exactly the same One. And the reason they were dr’iff…dressed in different parts, She’ll come from all nations, it’ll make up the Bride. Each one had long hair, and no makeup, and real pretty girls. And they were watching me. That represented the Bride coming out of all nations. See? She, each one represented a nation, as they marched perfectly in line with the Word. See?
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «The Bride two times: before the ages and then after the ages. / Each one represents a nation».
195 And, then, I have to watch Her. She’ll get out of step with that Word if I don’t watch, when She is passing by, if She gets by. Maybe it’ll be my time, when I’m over, see, when I’m finished, or whatever it is.
196 What? They was getting back. Trying their best, and was getting back, just get in line; ’cause, they—they was looking out somewhere else, watching about that church [WSS] «Laodicea» that just went out into chaos. But two…The front ones, never. The back ones, just two or three of them, was kind of stepped out a little bit to the right-hand side, and looked like was trying to get back in line as they went by
[JBP] and he writes: [WSS] «The vision of the Bride. Maybe when he is on the other side».
[JBP] And he also writes: [WSS] «One must walk in the center of the promised, vindicated, fulfilled Word for the Age of the Grain, the Age of the Cornerstone».
[JBP] And also in between, there he writes: [WSS] «(for the moment)».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in the message “PROVING HIS WORD,”3 also tells us of this event of the Bride out of step, he says, page 25:
109 And now notice, when He comes to deliver the children of Israel, what does He do? His same way, He sends His prophet. His prophet’s got the Word. The signs and wonders of the Word promised backs it up, that it’s exactly the Truth. Israel made her march to the promised land, because they believed it.
110 And in the wilderness journey, it came to pass that they disbelieved ([JBP] and there he writes): [WSS] «The Bride out of step» this prophet, after seeing the Word being so confirmed, the Bride got out of step (you know what I’m speaking about, in the vision, see, “got out of step”).
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And here, in the message I am reading of “THE VISION OF THE TABERNACLE” it says:
[WSS] So I believe that God will do that miracle and we will walk in the Age of the Cornerstone, we will walk in the third dispensation and not in the second dispensation that already finished. Only God can do it.
And brother Branham says he was the one crying out and shouting to the Bride but he was in another dimension, see?
For us to hear, for us to hear him being in the other dimension, how are you going to do that? You can’t go to the other dimension; he has to come to this one. But his body, well, already finished his ministry; he can’t do it through the body that he used and the fourth Elijah was manifested.
[JBP] That is why we have been quoting and talking there, that in the different times, when God finishes the work with a ministry that He is using in a veil of flesh, and God takes that veil of flesh, He, if He wants or desires to use that ministerial spirit that He was using there in that veil of flesh, He will use another veil of flesh that would be in the midst of the Church in that time, or the time in which He would be using him or using it. He explains it here and brother William says it, he says:
[WSS] Then He has to take another one of the bodies that is here; and through another one of the bodies that is here, then the ministry of the fourth Elijah can manifest again. And it will be the fifth Elijah crying out the same thing that he had spoken, speaking it again; and then he will put us in our rightful place, see?
[JBP] And that happened when God sent that ministerial spirit in our dear brother William Soto Santiago, which was crying out to the Church, to the Bride to enter in step into the Age of the Cornerstone, which was intertwining with the Laodicean Age, and the Dispensation of Grace was intertwining with the Dispensation of the Kingdom; it was an intertwining of age and also a dispensational intertwining; and there was the ministerial spirit of Elijah. And that ministerial spirit of Elijah that would be in him, it would be in a double portion.
[WSS] … see? He will place us in the age that corresponds to us and in the dispensation that corresponds to us.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He continues saying here, where we paused on page 25 [page 21 in Eng.], of the message “PROVING HIS WORD”:
 There was one stayed up, by the name of Joshua, and Caleb, and believed the Word of promise true, regardless of what the circumstances was.
111 Watch when they got to Kadesh-barnea. At Kadesh-barnea, Moses sent out one out of each tribe, to go spy out the land, see which way they was to enter. And he sent his general, Joshua, which was a prophet, so he sent a minor prophet under Moses. And Joshua listened to Moses. And they sent him out, so he said, “Go over and spy that land out.”
112 And the general went out and picked him out a man out of each tribe, and they took off. He took Caleb, his side buddy, because he knowed Caleb believed. They went over into the promised land, and came back with a bunch of grapes that taken two men to pack. Say, he said now, “So that Israel will have the evidence before they even get into the promise. See, they’ll have the evidence that God said it’s a good land, and it’s filled with milk and honey.
[JBP] That is, before they obtain that promise to enter the promised land, they would have the evidence).
It’s a grand land. It’s a good land. Now your…oh, all this old garlic, leek, and whatever you got here in Egypt. Now we’re taking you to a land with milk and honey. You probably never tasted either one, milk or honey, down there in Egypt all these years. They just give you the slaves’ rationing. But now you’re going to this land ([JBP] and he writes on the side): [WSS] «the introduction».”
[JBP] And he also writes: [WSS] «Kadesh-barnea = seat of judgment».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in this same message it tells us…, the one we are reading of “THE VISION OF THE TABERNACLE,” on another place at the bottom, he says:
[WSS] Our purpose, with these services that we are going to have under the Tent, we have seen that they will be of benefit to the Lord’s people; because all of us in Puerto Rico will be able to be together. And thus, everything that God has been giving us for two years and more, He has been letting us see, then it will be preached…
[JBP] Look how that time they were there, from ‘74 to ‘77, how that divine cycle is now repeated.
[WSS] So everything that God has been giving us for two years and more, He has been letting us see, then it will be preached ([JBP] See? Where does it say? In a Tent); and the people are already prepared (then) to have all this engraved in their hearts.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the book of Quotations, on page 13, paragraph 100, a little part here, it says:4
100 – “15 One of these days I want to pitch that tent the Lord’s going to give me, right outside of this side of Chicago here somewhere, have about a six or eight weeks meeting. We’re just going to go right down the Bible and teach on those things and just let Divine healing rest, go just about once or twice a week, or something, and just teach the Bible. Now, those things are not mythical. In contact with the Holy Spirit, I’m an illiterate person. That’s true. There’s nothing to me. But when I come under His anointing, and He takes me away and shows me things, I just got perfect confidence that it’s just exactly right, ’cause it’s never failed. And He will never say one thing outside what’s written in this Bible ([JBP] and he writes next to it): [WSS] «The Tent and the Teaching. It is written in the Bible».”
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And also in the message “THE GOD OF THIS EVIL AGE,”5 on page 4, it tells us:
16 Now, in doing this, I have come here for the purpose of teaching the last Vials, last Seven Vials, and the last Seven Trumpets, and the last Seven Thunders, of the Book of Revelation, tying them together in this hour that we’re now living; to follow the opening of the Seven Seals, the Seven Church Ages. So, we couldn’t get room to do it. So I—I hope that, soon as I can, we’ll…can get a place sufficient for that, either here or in Louisville, New Albany, or either put up a tent, so we can just stay as long as the Lord leads us to do.
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «In the Tent = the Teaching of: The Vials, the Trumpets and the last 7 Thunders».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And he continues [“THE VISION OF THE TABERNACLE”]:
[WSS] And then, notice, and then all that that is going to be preached, then it will run, it will reach the hands of the ministers of the Lord, so that then it will also be engraved in the brethren, in the elect of the different countries where there are elect.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] On page 31 he also tells us something there, from the book of Quotations. It says, paragraph 260 (this book of excerpts of messages preached by reverend William Branham says):6
260 – “And then if I ever have tent meetings; which I’m figuring on doing, the Lord willing, someday. Then I—I will, before I teach anything of these teachings, first will be a morning services with the pastors, for several days, let them know what I’m fixing to teach. And then if that brother doesn’t see it and doesn’t agree, any brother, then let them take their congregation, say, ‘Now, I don’t want you to hear this. We’ll just stay away while they’re teaching That.’ See? And give them the privilege.”
[JBP] and he writes: [WSS] «the Tent and the teaching».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And he continues saying here [“THE VISION OF THE TABERNACLE”]:
[WSS] And after the Word in its fullness is engraved in the heart of every chosen one, then God can do other things, see? God can then do other things that He has promised to do; then God can deal with the group of the foolish virgins.
[JBP] See? Already then, after that stage, of that teaching, then God can then work with that other group; which remember that is one of the explosions of the Seventh Seal, which when it bursts or explodes, it is the speaking, as he wrote there:7 [WSS] «explodes = speak».
[WSS] Listen well: those who haven’t received this Message or this part of the Message, and haven’t seen the New Name and all these things, let them be: don’t speak of them or their ministers, because their time comes; their time comes, and then those who haven’t crossed the line will have a chance.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in the message:
DISCERNMENT BY THE WORD
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Sunday, January 4, 1976
Ponce, Puerto Rico
When He manifested Himself in simplicity in Jesus, people began to stumble with what? In the simplicity: in Jesus, in the veil of flesh; that was the simplicity in which God was manifesting Himself.
When He manifested Himself in the messengers of every age, they stumbled at the simplicity in which God was manifesting Himself.
When He manifested Himself in brother Branham, they stumbled at the simplicity in which God was manifesting Himself and coming as He promised He would come.
When He manifested Himself in the disciples, those 120, on the Day of Pentecost, they began to stumble at the simplicity through which God was manifesting Himself; for He wasn’t manifesting Himself through the greatness of the Pharisees and Sadducees (eloquent ministers), and through Caiaphas (the leader of the religion of that time); but He was manifesting Himself through simple fishermen, simple tax collectors, very simple people; and through those simple people, through that simplicity, God was manifesting Himself powerfully; and people began to stumble with the veils of flesh where God was hiding and manifesting Himself.
All that was already promised that God would do it; but He did it in such a form, so simple, that the wise and the knowledgeable couldn’t see it; they couldn’t see God manifested through simplicity.
And at this time God is in the midst of His people in the form of Word, in the form of Message, in the form of teaching; and very few will be those who will be able to see God manifesting Himself in this end time in which we are.
Many will think and say: “That is the teaching of So-and-so or So-and-so, of So-and-so,” but they will not realize that it is the teaching of God; they will not realize that it is the Lord Himself in the form of Word, in the form of Message, discerning everything that has already been revealed; discerning it, making it known, teaching it to the Lord’s people.
Then, He also discerns everything. All that was revealed now is the time to be made known, that is, to be understood.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] On page 94 of the book of Quotations, paragraph 809, it says:8
809 – “122 That’s the reason we had an Irenaeus, and a Polycarp, and—and—and—and those fellows, a Saint Martin. 123 When that antichrist was riding with his false teaching; God sent His Teaching out, the Word, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, which is the Word made manifest in the Holy Spirit.”
[JBP] and he writes: [WSS] «The teaching. Lion of Judah».
[JBP] In other words, it is a Work of the Holy Spirit that will be doing that Work of teaching.
He goes on to say [“DISCERNMENT BY THE WORD”]:
[WSS] Now, when we see all these things we can understand, by the discernment of the Word, which is manifesting itself in the form of teaching: through that we can understand and know what is right and what is wrong; we can understand and know who are the true anointed ones with the Word of God for this hour and for this new dispensation.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Also, in the message:
TIME OF REDEMPTION
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Sunday, November 4, 1977
Cayey, Puerto Rico
What can be said of this generation, of this world that is now coming to an end? They can say: “We serve God, we believe in Christianity, we have this and that.” God says about this gentile world, about the world systems, about the political ([JBP] And who puts an end to all that? It is the Seventh Seal), religious, economic, and educational systems: “Ye are of your father the devil, and the works of your father ye are doing.” That is what God says in this hour to this gentile world, and of this gentile world, and of this gentile humanity. There is no sugarcoating, the Word is tough, harsh; but it is the truth.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In this message: “THE GOD OF THIS EVIL AGE,”9 on page 42, it tells us:
170 Remember, the hour is close at hands when the mark will come. You’ll either be in it or out of it. It’ll come like a thief in the night. It’ll catch you right in there, and you’re there. There ain’t no getting out of it then; you done took it. Come out!
An Angel came down from Heaven, with a great shining face, and cried out to the people. It shook the earth. “Come out of Babylon, for she is fallen. Be not partakers of her plagues, My people!” Get out of her. Get out! Didn’t we just read it in the Word, a while ago? An angel is a “messenger,” see, coming down. Notice the Holy Spirit, “Come out of her, that you be not partakers.”
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «the mark of the beast will come».
171 Now she’s built all these things. She has built great churches. She has built college, schools, taking the people and educating them into a—a better, so-called, civilization. And they’ve educated them by a modern civilization that’s brought them into the pit of death, by knowledge, away from God and His Word.
Don’t you see the whole scheme? Do you see that, church? [Congregation says, “Amen.”—Ed.] Out on the air, if you see it in your own congregations out there, say “amen,” the rest of them will know where you’re standing. See?
She’s did it. She’s…It’s a god of this earth, and she has built colleges. She has built universities. She has built hospitals. She has built libraries. She has built all these things for temporary help of man, just enough to deceive them, to get off of that Word. And what’s she led them to? The whole church world is plunged into death, for God said that He would burn the whore, and her children, with an everlasting fire.
Come out of it, people! Don’t you be caught in there. You get away from that thing as quick as you can!
By her scientific knowledge, she is been able to do this, now notice, without God’s Word.
172 God never did ordain us to go out and have schools. He never. He never told us to build hospitals. They’re good. He never told us to build libraries. No, sir. He never.
[JBP] And he on the front cover writes, referring to that page 43: [WSS] «The Lord did not say to build schools, hospitals, etc., but: Preach the Gospel».
 No, sir. He never.
He said, “Preach the Gospel.” And, the Gospel, is manifesting, demonstrating the power of the Holy Spirit.
Paul said, “The Gospel come to us, not through word only, but through the manifestation and demonstrations of the Holy Spirit.” Paul said, “I never come to you with great words of wisdom by some doctor of so forth, but I come to you in power and demonstration of the Holy Spirit; that your faith would not be in the wisdom or knowledge of the men of this world, but in the power of the resurrection of Jesus Christ; because He lives, the same yesterday, today, and forever.” God help us to believe the same thing, and God vindicate the same thing as He has been doing.
173 He keeps you from seeing the true revelation and faith of God’s Word being revealed and vindicated today, by his schools, libraries, literature, hospitals, and so forth. See? He keeps you from it ([JBP] That is, the enemy, the devil). He is now interpreting, as he did to Pharaoh, trying to keep you from seeing the meaning of the vindicated Word of His promised age in the evening Light, vindicated and proved.
[JBP] and he writes: [WSS] «True meaning».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Of course, we encourage them, our children and the youth, to study, to get a good profession for the support of your own needs, and when you get married, of your families; because we are living on this planet Earth with and for a divine purpose, which is to make contact with eternal life, by believing in Jesus, in Jesus Christ in His First Coming as our only and sufficient Savior, and after that, also believing… and there we receive the theophanic spirit, we are born again in the sixth dimension; and then to believe in His Second Coming as the Lion of the tribe of Judah in His Reclaiming Work, to then obtain the eternal and glorified body.
While that is happens, we have to —on this planet Earth— we have to occupy our responsibility as children, as kids first, then youth, then adults, then elders; in other words, it is a process in which, being on this planet Earth, we have to fulfill.
And as he says: [WMB] “Hospitals are good; and schools, well, we have to learn to then obtain that knowledge in that learning,” whether it is a profession or some career for the support of each one of us or our family. But the first thing or the only thing that Jesus there said, as he says, was: [WMB] “to take the Gospel.”
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] It goes on to say on the other part, on the other page, on a little part here [“THE GOD OF THIS EVIL AGE”]:
174 See, trying to keep you from seeing the real meaning of the Word. Not what…See, he is interpreting It, saying It means this.
God said, “I promised in the last days I’d send you Malachi 4.” It don’t have to be interpreted; He did it. He said, “And as it was in the days of Lot, the world will be in a Sodom condition; and in that time, I will reveal the Son of man by it, exactly.” We got all kinds of impersonations and everything else, of it, but we got the real One, too. See? He said He would do it.
He said the antichrist would raise up and almost deceive the Elected if it was possible. But said, “Let them alone. Let them go ahead. Their folly will be found out.” Why? The Word test proves it. See?
When it come to that Word, “That had been back this way, that? Oh, I don’t believe in serpent’s seed. I don’t believe in this, that, and the other.” It’s never been revealed, see, no, never. Oh, brother, just look where… We’re going to have to close, because it’s twelve o’clock.
175 Notice, trying to keep you from seeing the meaning of the Word of this age, of evening Light being interpreted [WSS] «Vindicated». It is… What does it mean? It’s the time of exodus is at hand… [WSS] «The third exodus».
[JBP] And in another part he writes: [WSS] «Satan prevents them from seeing the true meaning of the Word».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] It goes on to say in the message “TIME OF REDEMPTION”, where I left off:
[WSS] Therefore, then because of that and other things over there it cost the Messiah His life at His First Coming. They said: “He is blaspheming, He has blasphemed.” Why? Because He said He was the Son of God, because He identified Himself with what He was. See? He identified Himself in the Word, and He took the Word that was spoken about the Messiah, and He said that Word was fulfilled in Him. What when He identifies Himself as the Son of David, as the King of Israel? Then all of that you know will cause a persecution, it will cause a squeeze, it will cause things to happen that are said to happen.
But what will seemingly be a victory for the world, will be the greatest defeat for them. What will seemingly be a defeat for God’s chosen people, will be the greatest victory for God’s people. That is why, in this hour, as we approach that time, don’t be surprised at the squeeze and the way it gradually comes in. The tighter the squeeze, the firmer the Word, knowing that in a time of squeeze, in a time of testing, is that all of that will be fulfilled.
Therefore, people will mock, people will think that these things that are currently said, well, they are said just to say something, without meaning; and some who notice that the Bible speaks of those things, if they don’t know the time we are in, they may say: “Well, yes, that does say it in the Bible, but…” Well, it will not be fulfilled because So-and-so says it, but it will be fulfilled because God says it through His mouth. For it is the mouth of the Lord that will speak, that will speak and point out the things that are to come to pass, point out the judgments that are to come upon this gentile world. They will laugh, but after they laugh they will see all that was spoken fulfilled. First they hear it spoken and then they see it fulfilled.
[JBP] And I think in the book of…, Psalm, there is a Psalm that says: “The Lord will laugh at them” [Psalms 2:4]. In another paragraph in that same message, it says:
(…) We are entering that time, that time is moving to the literal. And we see that everything that has been moving spiritually, and being fulfilled spiritually with a spiritual resurrection and a spiritual rapture and a spiritual transformation…, because we have been transformed spiritually; all that is already moving to the literal. From one moment to another… because the spiritual and the literal are intertwined, and we are already in the introduction of that time; and from one moment to another, we will fully enter that time. And then what we have waited for so long, what we have longed for so much, we will see it fulfilled. And then we will see our beloved brothers and sisters who have died.
We know that… The first one who died of the New Testament saints, the first one who died as a martyr was Stephen. Right? And his face was seen as the face of an angel, and he said: “I saw the heavens opened.” Well, that was the first of the martyrs, the first of the saints to die, and he was killed. Now, we find that the Scripture also tells us that… Notice, we will see the first one that died, we are going to see him when he is resurrected; and he will have been dead for almost two thousand years; but he will be resurrected, and it will be as if he had not died. And he was a young man.
Now, we will also see the last one who will die, who will be the last martyr, who will be the last martyr of the chosen ones. We will see him. But he won’t have to be there long, because after a few days he will have to return ([JBP] And that tells us about the one that will have that ministry of Revelation 11, Moses and Elijah in him, where at the end of his ministry they will kill him), because the time to return arrives, and he will know how to return. So when he comes back he will not come back alone.
[JBP] Glory to God! In other words, he will come with all the saints of the sixth dimension; because there is a great mystery, which will not be opened and it will not be shown how that ministry of Elijah that will be in the midst of the Church, that will be operating that double ministry of Elijah, he will not be alone, he will call Moses to his side.
That Voice that called Lazarus: “Lazarus, come forth!”, is the same Voice of the Resurrection; He will call Moses to his side. And there, with that call, with that Voice of Archangel, He will be bringing those of the sixth dimension. And all that is written, all that is pointed out in the Bible and in the messages of brother Branham and in the writings of brother William.
There is something very, very big in all this, which is not openly spoken of how all this will be happening. And it would all be in a simple way, in a way that later on you will say: “But it was easier, simpler, than I thought!” See? God fulfills everything that He would be doing, what He would be carrying out in the midst of His Church, which is in a very, very great stage, and they are very important and very great prophetic events, and there He fulfills it in a very simple way.
[WSS] So let’s be prepared, let’s be in expectation, because the hour is advanced, because the time has come to an end; and now we don’t know for sure if the time of the gentiles is over or is about to end or is ending in these days, but when that happens, then that other time span left over comes in where all those other things are to take place ([JBP] Where do all those things take place? In that spare time). So this morning’s topic is: “TIME OF REDEMPTION,” that is, time of transformation for the earthly bodies.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in the message:
THE LIGHT AT THE TOP OF MOUNT ZION
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Sunday, January 22, 1989
Cayey, Puerto Rico
As it happened in the days of Jesus. In the days of Jesus, all the ministers of that time were called to do what? To call the people to the Message of the Lord Jesus Christ, to tell them: “That is the man, the messenger; and He has the Messianic Message for this time; and what He is saying is the Truth; and the Spirit that is upon Him is the Spirit of God.” But they said it was that of Beelzebub.
So notice how the religious leaders of that time turned the people away (from what?) from the Divine Program that was relevant to that time. And for that reason the Lord Jesus Christ said to them: “Blind, guide the blind. If the blind lead the blind, both will fall into the pit.” So He didn’t treat them very well.
Today we are treating them better than the Lord Jesus Christ treated them. We will see later on how God is going to treat them through His Message, through His Word for our time, because a time is going to come when God is going to ask them for an account, as the Scripture says.
And if in the time of Moses, those who rose up against Moses: because of the Word that Moses spoke —which God put in his mouth—, the earth opened and swallowed them up… And in the time of Elijah, those who came against him to take him prisoner, he said: “Let fire come down from heaven”; and fire came down from heaven, and burned them all. And then, to the false prophets, who were leading the people away from the Message that was relevant to that time, then Elijah with the Word of God called them to challenge; and when they lost the challenge, they lost even their lives.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the book of Quotations, in paragraph 772, it says…, on page 90. This is from an excerpt of the message “THE SECOND SEAL”:10
772 – “ All right. This rider and all his kingdom subjects that are slaying down through the age, that’s drawed all this blood of the martyrs of the saints, will be slain by the Sword of Jesus Christ when He comes. ‘They that take the sword will be slain by the sword.’ They took the sword of dogma and antichrist, and cut down the real, true worshippers, all down through the ages, to, well, the millions. And when Christ comes with the Sword, for it’s His Word that proceeds out of His mouth, He’ll slay every enemy there is before Him. Do you believe it? ‘Kill the enemy.’ 321 Let’s go over here just a minute, Revelation. We’ll see now if I’m just saying that, or whether the Word says it. Revelation 19:11. / 326 Hebrews, the 4th chapter, said, ‘The Word of God is sharper than a two-edged sword, cutting even to the marrow of the bone.’ And what does It, the Word, do? ‘It’s a Discerner of the thoughts of the heart.’ Right. / 328 But God said, ‘With the same Thing that he perverted, or tried to, by a false teaching; that same Word will rise in power, coming forth from the lips of Jesus Christ, and shall slay him, and everything before Him.’ Amen. 329 There is the Second Seal.”
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «2nd Seal = the Word killing the anti-Word».
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «The Sword = The Word».
[WSS] «The teaching»
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Our brother William continues to say [“THE LIGHT ON THE TOP OF MOUNT ZION”]:
[WSS] Remember that He comes at His Second Coming with a sharp two-edged Sword to destroy the nations. And it will not be a literal sword or a literal anything (as Elijah had in past times), but it will be the Word. And by the Word will come a time when many things will come to pass: blessing for some and judgment for others. This will happen at a certain time: in what is called or known as “the squeeze.”
In that time of the squeeze, they will try to tighten the Divine Program; but, as we say: “Let’s see who will squeeze the most.”
The squeeze that they will do to the chosen ones will be so small compared to the squeeze that will come as divine judgment to all nations, to the kingdom of the gentiles, which will be as big as it has never been before.
To crown that squeeze that will come to the kingdom of the gentiles, the Lord, by His spoken Word, will speak those judgments in the Age of the Cornerstone. He will also speak the blessings to the elect who departed in the past, so that they may receive the resurrection, may return to this Earth; and the elect who are alive may receive the transformation of their bodies.
But for the kingdom of the gentiles the only thing that is promised is the judgment from the mouth of God. That is why He comes with a Sword that comes out from His mouth to smite all nations with it. He comes with the Message, with the Word that corresponds to our time, with the Message of the Great Voice of Trumpet, with the Message of the Trumpet of the Year of Jubilee, with the Message of the Last Trumpet.
That is the Message that comes out from His mouth; that is the two-edged Sword with which He strikes all the nations, all the gentile kingdoms, or the whole gentile kingdom, which is composed of all the gentile nations. With what is spoken through the Great Voice of Trumpet Message, divine judgment comes to all nations.
At present time, apparently (apparently) nothing is happening. People don’t know what is happening in the Divine Program, because it is happening in an age: The Age of the Cornerstone; it is also happening in a new dispensation: The Dispensation of the Gospel of the Kingdom. And everything is made known through the Message of the Gospel of the Kingdom; not through the Message of the Law or the Message of Grace, but through the Gospel of the Kingdom, which is preached by testimony.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the book of The Seals, on page 374 [page 441 in Eng.], it says:
399 Do you enjoy the Sixth Seal? [Congregation says, “Amen.”—Ed.] You see where It’s opened at now? [“Amen.”] Have you believed It? [“Amen.”]
400 It said, “Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?” See? Believe the report, then the arm of the Lord is revealed. The arm, the Word of God, is revealed ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «The arm of the Lord = the Word».
401 The Lord willing now, tomorrow morning, I’ll try my best to answer those questions. I’ll spend probably the rest of the night, and, or most of it, in prayer, over them. I’m getting about from one to three hours a night. I never got to bed last night till going on one, and at three o’clock I was in study. See? See?
402 I’m going to have to answer for this. That’s right. We’re too close for anything, any foolishness, or any presuming, or halfway believe. I’ve got to see it, first. And then, when I see it, it’s got to be in the Word, too. And so far, by the grace of God, they’ve perfectly. I’ve took it from all the way through, you know that, and it’s—it’s blended right together.
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «the guessings».
[JBP] That is to say, not to be… this is no longer a time to be guessing, to be fooling around or imagining something, but it is a time to see reality.
403 It’s got to be THUS SAITH THE LORD. Cause, it’s not only as it say It from me knowing It, myself, but the Word of the Lord is THUS SAITH THE LORD. And here is the Word, taking what He has give to me, and blending It together and showing you. So you know, yourself, it’s THUS SAITH THE LORD. See?
([JBP] Page 375):
404 Here is the Word, says so. And then the revelation that He gives me, which is contrary to what any of us has ever thought; why, contrary to what I thought, ’cause I never went into It like that. But now, we find, it slides right together. And what is It? It’s THUS SAITH THE LORD. See? It’s exactly. It’s been a place opened up, holding there, to this hour, and then the Lord comes and pushes It right in like that. So, you see, there It is. It, It’s—it’s the Lord. Oh, I love Him! I love Him with all my heart.
[JBP] And brother William writes: [WSS] «opposite, different from how we thought before».
405 Now remember, you…We couldn’t get to the altar. Several held their hands up. Now, see, it’s an individual affair, with you. It’s whatever you want to do. See? 406 The hour is so close at hand, you ought to be pressing as hard as you could, not have to be pulled. See, just pressing, trying to get in, “Lord, don’t let me out. Don’t leave me out, Lord. The doors are closing; if I can just get in!”
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «Don’t leave me out Lord».
[JBP] And it is the time where we should be most interested, it is the time where we should be saying: [WMB] “Lord, don’t leave me out. The doors are closing. I just want to come in.” Those are the words that an elect of God should be saying: “Don’t shut me out of the blessing, Lord, of my transformation.” A chosen one is not going to be lost, a chosen one is not going to go through the great tribulation; but it is better that he enters soon, it is better that he is already sitting, preparing himself to receive his transformation, and my transformation. In other words, it is a time to be crying out to God for that.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in the last excerpt here, just to finish:
THE WORK OF THE SEVENTH SEAL
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Sunday, March 5, 1989
Cayey, Puerto Rico
Blessings will be spoken for all the elect: The Great Voice of Trumpet or Last Trumpet will speak all the blessings for the elect. But also at a certain time shall be spoken the plagues that pertain to the kingdom of the gentiles; that it may be so fulfilled, that with that Sword which proceeds out of His mouth He shall smite all nations.11 There must be spoken —in the Message— judgment upon the nations.
That is THE WORK OF THE SEVENTH SEAL.
And when every divine judgment is being spoken over the kingdom of the gentiles, when those plagues are being spoken: The Seventh Seal will be inside and intertwined with the Sixth Seal, under the ministry of the Two Olives, of Moses and Elijah.
And it is through the ministry of Moses and Elijah that the Hebrew people will see what they for thousands of years have been waiting for; so it will be that they will see the Second Coming of the Lord.
So we are living in a very glorious time, a wonderful time; we are living in the time of the Work of the Seventh Seal.
[JBP] Carefully read that last excerpt, so you can notice… and that message, I think brother Miguel, I think he put it at some point or sent it to be written; but there are many very important things in that message.
Well, it has been for me a great honor and privilege that you grant me, brother Miguel, to send this greeting to all the brethren that are gathered today in all Latin America and the whole world, which today, Saturday, July 23 of this year 2022, are gathered today, and for this talk that we have given this topic for today, which was taken from the writing there of brother William: [WSS] «Eighth Day = the day of vengeance».
May God bless you greatly, and may tomorrow be a day full of great blessing for each and every one of us. And may God also use the missionary Miguel Bermudez Marin greatly.
God bless you and God keep you; continue having a happy day and a day full of great blessings from our heavenly Father. And we thank God for sending us at this time His Angel Messenger: William Soto Santiago.
God bless you and God keep you all.
