In the 3rd Pull: They had to recognize Him

Rev. José Benjamín Pérez
Thursday, November 17, 2022
Cayey, Puerto Rico

Good morning. Today Thursday, November 17 of this year 2022, a greeting to the missionary Miguel Bermudez Marin and to all the brethren gathered today with him; and also tomorrow, who will have a meeting there in Puebla. And also to our brother Andres Cruz, who is gathered today in Villahermosa with all the pastors and ministers of the southeast of Villahermosa, of Tabasco, all that region; and all those who are in the different countries, who also have a meeting today during the early hours of the morning, also during the day and during the night, and also tomorrow. It is truly a blessing to be able to send these words of greeting to each and every one of you.

It tells us in the Holy Scriptures: In the book of Revelation we look in chapter 12, verse 1 and on; it says:

1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:

2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

[JBP] He draws a pyramid and circles it, and puts like gleams; and at the bottom he draws the ages, and also circles, puts a circle below.

2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.

4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the message “SHALOM” (let’s stop for a moment here in that Scripture), on page 15 at the bottom, of the message “SHALOM,”1 preached on January 12, ‘64, it says:

68 Now, the other day, we’ve had in the event of the history of the church now…In the—the Bible, the moon represents the “church,” and the sun represents “Christ.” [WSS] «Moon / Sun» For we find that in Revelation, the 12th chapter, the woman which was the “church,” she was found with the moon under her feet and the sun at her head, twelve stars in her crown. Which, the—the old Orthodox Jewish law was under her feet, she had crossed over that into the light of the sun. Twelve stars are the “twelve apostles” that brought the messages to us, now, under the Holy Spirit. Now we find that the moon in the heavens is to reflect the light of the sun, in the absence of the sun. It gives us—it gives us light to get around. But it’s still… No matter how much it reflects, it’s still not the perfect light, because it is reflecting. And the sun shines against the moon, and the moon reflects its light in the absence of the sun. But when the sun comes up, then the moon [WSS] «Church» is not needed no more.

He draws a Star of David, and he writes: [WSS] «What is perfect is the Light of the Sun».

And he also writes: [WSS] «There is no Light except through the Word, the Light of the 8th Day». «The Sun = the Word».

He writes all of that there in that part, there… He goes on to say [“SHALOM”]:

69 And today the Church is reflecting the Light of the absent Son of God. The Church is a reflection of the Light. Because He said, “A little while and the world seeth Me no more. Yet ye shall see Me, for I will be with you, even in you, to the end of the age. The works that I do,” Lights that He made manifest. And there’s no Light except through the Word of God. There was…

70 That sun is the Word of God.

([JBP] And he also draws a Star of David).

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And we continue here in the book of Revelation, chapter 12; we stopped on verse 4.

4 …for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

[JBP] He writes there: [WSS] «Revelation 11:3-12».

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Let’s turn for a moment to Matthew, chapter 2, verse 13:

13 And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.

14 When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt:

15 And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.

[JBP] See, we also see that promise fulfilled in the First Coming of the Lord, where Jesus was persecuted —even as a child— to kill Him; in other words, it was a persecution to death that the Messiah had in His First Coming.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] It is as he tells us in the message:

THE MAN WHO RECEIVES THE KING’S ROBE, HORSE AND CROWN (AND THE SCEPTER)
(Ministers Meeting)

Bogota, Colombia

Because prophecies have multiple fulfillments; a single prophecy can be fulfilled once, twice, three times, four times or five times; and it will always be at a time when the conditions are parallel to that time when it was fulfilled; therefore, the same prophecy will be repeated.

[JBP] See how that prophecy, of that persecution that took place there and that slaughter of children, at the time of Jesus, we saw that it also took place at the time of Moses. In other words, all those prophecies have —as our brother William says— multiple fulfillments.

And here, in Revelation 12, we also see that prophecy being fulfilled in Revelation 11:3-12, which is the Scripture that he writes there.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] It goes on to say on verse 5 [Revelation 12]:

5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

[JBP] And he writes there again: [WSS] «Rev. 11:3-7».

7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,

8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.

9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven…

[JBP] And there, he also writes in that part: [WSS] «the whole world is deceived». (We had read that several months ago)2. Says:

10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God [WSS] «Rev. 11:15», and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.

14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness…

[JBP] He writes: [WSS] «Malachi 4:2»; where He says there: “And on His Wings He will bring salvation (health).” Remember that those two Wings are the ministries of Moses and Elijah.

14 …that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

[JBP] And there he writes: [WSS] «Rev. 11:3-7».

15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.

16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.

17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «the 144,000». In other words, those are the ones who “keep the commandment of God.” “And they have the testimony of Jesus Christ,” he writes: [WSS] «the gentile Church».

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in the message:

 

THE MYSTERY OF GOD, CHRIST AND HIS ANGELS
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Sunday, July 25, 2004
Villahermosa, Tabasco, Mexico

Sometimes I say “Michael” first, sometimes I say “Gabriel” first, but the important thing is that those are the most important Archangels of God. And there is such a great mystery there that for many years I have known it, and I haven’t been able to make it known to you, but someday I will make it known to all of you.

[JBP] And that great mystery is being made known under the fulfillment of what was prophesied and spoken by the Reverend William Branham, where in a Great Tent Cathedral all the Teaching would be given, which is the one that contains the Rapturing Faith.

And all the mysteries have to be known by the Church; because knowing the mysteries, knowing the mysteries of God, is that the people of God would be receiving that Rapturing Faith.

Remember that [WSS] «The mystery = a truth hidden to the human being». Let’s read it, because that was said by our brother William and he wrote it in a place here; and so we have that foundation of the place where he said it… He writes in a Bible study:

[WSS] «The mystery = a truth hidden to the human being».

«The Sword = the Word of God».

«The mouth = the prophet».

«The hand = God’s power».

[JBP] And he writes something else on the side: [WSS] «and the Faith».

«The Son of Man = Christ veiled and revealed in human flesh».

[JBP] Notice how God’s ministries are revealed to the human being; and God always has to use a feil of flesh.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He goes on to say here [“THE MYSTERY OF GOD, CHRIST AND HIS ANGELS”]:

[WSS] …someday I will make it known to all of you.

But the important thing is that God with His Archangels Gabriel and Michael are working on this Earth in the midst of His Church, and they will also work in favor of the Hebrew people.

We find that these Archangels had to do with the changes of the kingdom of the gentiles: The change of Babylon, from the Babylonian kingdom to the Medo-Persian kingdom, and from the Medo-Persian kingdom to the kingdom of Greece, and from the kingdom of Greece to the Roman kingdom…

[JBP] And he writes in a Bible study, he writes: [WSS] «The two Angels arrived in Sodom when changing a (dispensational) day to another (dispensational)».

See, those Archangels, those two Angels came in a change of dispensation.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Our brother William goes on to say [“THE MYSTERY OF GOD, CHRIST AND HIS ANGELS”]:

[WSS] …therefore, these Angels will also have to do with the change of the kingdom of the gentiles to the Kingdom of Jesus Christ our Savior.

That is why the Archangel Michael appears in Revelation, chapter 12 fighting against the devil and casting him into the earth. And also in Daniel, chapter 12 says the Archangel Gabriel, that Michael will arise and “it will be a time of trouble such as never was,” because then will come the great tribulation for the human race; and the kingdoms of this world will be taken away and will be given to Christ; the kingdoms of this world will become of our Lord and of His Christ, and He will reign for all eternity.

 

GREETINGS TO THE PASTORS
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Saturday, August 18, 2012
Via telephone to Ibague, Colombia

We are in the most important time of all times, the stage or Golden Age of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ; time parallel to the time when Jesus Christ appeared on Earth and had His ministry of three and a half years; time parallel also to the time of the apostles, and time parallel also to the time of Noah, and time parallel also to the time of Abraham and Lot, when Sodom and Gomorrah and other nearby cities were destroyed.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the message “SOULS THAT ARE IN PRISON NOW,”3 we are going to see here on page 39 (at the bottom), it tells us:

[277] And notice when the Third Pull of His ministry come. The First was healing the sick.

278 The Second was rebuking the organizations, and prophesying; what they had done, what they were, and what was coming. What is, what is, will come; and what was, what is, and what will come. That’s what He done. Is that right? [Congregation says, “Amen.”—Ed.]

279 But His Third Pull was when He preached to the lost that couldn’t be saved no more. They were down there where them big, painted eyes was, “Ooh, ooh!” Preached to the souls in hell, that did not accept mercy, but were Eternally separated from the Presence of God. But yet they had to recognize it, what He was, because God made Him there.

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «In the 3rd Pull: They had to recognize Him».

And he draws a Star of David.

280 Wonder if His ministry climbs out the same way in the last days, as it was? “As the Father sent Me, so send I you. The works that I do shall you also.”

281 Lost, could never be saved. They had rejected mercy. That was His Third Pull.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Now, remember, in the book of The Seals it tells us something there that the mercy of God would be in those ministries; and it also tells us about those who despised that mercy for the last time. And that is in the book of The Seals, page 369 [p. 436 in Eng.]; it says:

[360] He is the Word. See? They had laughed at the Word. And here the Word was, incarnate [WSS] «Moses». And they had made fun of It; laughed at them, made fun of them. And the incarnate Word had dropped forth! [WSS] «in the Angel of Jesus, Moses and Elijah». ([JBP] Remember that the Son of Man comes with His Angels).

361 Why didn’t they repent? They couldn’t. It was too far, then. So, they knowed that, the punishment. They hear It. They had sat in meetings like this and knowed about It. And they knowed that the things of those prophets, had predicted, was looking them right in the face, the thing that they had rejected. They had spurned mercy for the last time.

362 And when you spurn mercy, there is nothing left but judgment.

[JBP] And next to that he draws a Star of David.

And that is where he writes: [WSS] «Elijah and Moses, he who receives His Message receives mercy».

Notice how God sends God’s mercy for the last time to the human race: In the Third Pull.

[“SOULS THAT ARE IN PRISON NOW”] [P. 39]:

[281] That was His Third Pull.

282 Now is there any question? His First Pull, He healed the sick. Is that right? [Congregation says, “Amen.”—Ed.] His Second Ministry, He was prophesying. His Third Ministry was preaching to the Eternal lost. The three mountains, so forth; the lost, Eternal!

283 Noah’s ministry, all ministries, done the same. Noah preached. That exactly right. He went into the ark. And when he went into the ark, there were seven days ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «the 7 Thunders» that nothing happened ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «in 7 perfect ages».

[JBP] Where did that happen? Look, he draws a Star of David, and writes:

[WSS] «Silence, Revelation 8:1».

Look where that represents those seven days…; because in the Age of the Cornerstone there are seven stages, seven ages. And look here how it says: seven stages, that is, seven stages and seven ages in the Age of the Cornerstone. And he writes there:

[283] …there were seven days ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «the 7 Thunders» that nothing happened ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «in 7 perfect ages». His testimony preached to the doomed.

284 Sodom and Gomorrah! Jesus referred to both of them as coming. “Before the coming of the Son of man, so shall it be like the days of Noah, so shall it be in like it was in the days of Sodom.” He referred to Noah.

285 Noah had Three Pulls, and his Third was to the lost after the door was shut. For, God let it sit right there, where nobody could enter or go out. They were inside. For, (as on the seventh mountain) the highest mountain, that’s where He settled the ark, mountain. See? That right?

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «The 7th mountain = the 3rd Pull».

And he writes to the side: [WSS] «The Coming of the Son of Man».

286 In the days of Sodom, the First Pull was the righteous Lot. And the Bible said, “The sins of Sodom vexed his righteous soul daily,” how them women acted and done.

287 You remember, “As it was in the days of Noah.” What was they doing? “Eating, drinking, marrying, given in marriage.” Women, see, women. What was it in the days of—of Sodom? Women.

288 And the First message was Lot. They laughed him to scorn.

289 Then they sent another messengers, two of them, and they went down. That was His Second Pull for Lot… for Sodom.

290 But look at that One that went last, there’s more and more mercy. It was all over then, all over at that time. That third Messenger that went down there, the Third Pull, what was He? What kind of a ministry did He have? He set with the elected, and told them what was taking place behind Him. That right? But when He stepped off into Babylon, or into Sodom, He wanted to find…

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «Elohim stepped off into Sodom».

And don’t lose sight of that. The Third Pull, what was that messenger that came down in that Third Pull, the one that went there? It says: [WMB] “The one who was speaking to the chosen ones, and had told them what was happening behind their backs.” It says:

[290] That right? But when He stepped off into Babylon, or into Sodom, He wanted to find…

291 Even Abraham, crying, “If I could find fifty righteous?” On down to “ten righteous?”

God said, “Yes, find ten righteous.” [WSS] «in the gentile world».

292 Let me tell you something, sister, just a minute. You might be old-fashioned, but you got something these sex queens hasn’t got. You’ve got something that she can never have. Right. You might be old-fashioned in your dressing, dress up like a lady. They might say, “Look at that old holy-roller.” Don’t you worry. She’s got something that that little old sex queen, that’s got all the world looking at her out there, she hasn’t got it. She can never have it. She is lost, Eternally. She is doomed. See? She’s never… You got moral; you got virtue. She’s got nothing. She’s got a bait that traps the lost souls into hell. The blind walks into it. Now, you’ve got something.

293 You know, you might not be even on a church book, but it might be your righteous life that’s holding the wrath of God from the world today. The world won’t believe it. You woman that’s called holy-roller, you little man that don’t hardly know anything, but you cry to God, day and night, for the sins of the country, you might be the one that’s holding off the wrath. “If I can find ten, I’ll spare it. If I can find ten!”

[JBP] And remember, there is a place (I think it was sent to me) where he says that [WSS] “in the congregations there are… (or something like that) that have more than 10 or that have many children of God; that that is why it is taken – the Message is carried (something like that).”4 Later we can find that place where he talks about that. He goes on to say:

[293] “…If I can find ten!”

[JBP] Because we want God to take care of Latin America and the Caribbean from the divine judgments that are to come; and we desire that Latin America and the Caribbean remain without suffering from those damages that will come, of those divine judgments caused by all those atomic bombs, and volcanoes and eruptions and all that; and so the majority of the human beings that enter the glorious Millennial Kingdom will be Latin American and Caribbean people.

[293] “If I can find ten, I’ll spare it. If I can find ten!” “As it was in the days of Sodom, so shall it be.” See what I mean?

294 Not, “If I can find ten Methodists, if I can find ten Baptists, if I can find ten Pentecostals, if I can find ten athletes, if I can find ten senators, if I can find ten ministers.”

295 But, “If I can find ten righteous!” There is One righteous, that’s Christ. Christ living in One, them ten ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «The Mighty Angel», see, “I’ll spare it.”

296 But that last Messenger…

[JBP] I am going to place right where he wrote that, it says:

[296] But that last Messenger preached to the doomed.

[JBP] And there he makes an arrow towards that sentence, and he writes: [WSS] «Rev. 10:1-6», and he writes: [WSS] «The Mighty Angel».

That is the Angel who is preaching to those who couldn’t be saved. See how that Scripture here is also fulfilled; for he is told, after he eats the Book, that he should prophesy upon many peoples, nations, tongues and kings.5

And remember that the Third Pull is for the Bride, it is for the Church (the sleeping virgins) and it is for the lost. That is the Stage where it will be said that there is no more opportunity for salvation.

And a messenger has to be proclaiming, preaching, and speaking that the hour of His judgment has come; and preaching and teaching, that the time of God’s mercy is over, that He is out of the Throne of Intercession, that now the Throne is a Throne of Judgment, that the Dispensation of Grace has come to its end, and that we are in a new day, in a new dispensational day.

All that has to be being preached through the manifestation of the Lord in the fulfillment of Revelation, chapter 10, which is the Coming of that Mighty Angel that descends with the Title Deed, with the Book open in His hand, and gives it to a man to eat it; and that man has to be proclaiming the day of vengeance of our God.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He goes on to say [“SOULS THAT ARE IN PRISON NOW”] [P. 41]:

296 But that last Messenger preached to the doomed. You say… He went down there. Scripture don’t say what happened, but the fire fell the next morning, right, after He performed those signs, immediately after He performed His prophecy ministry. “Why did Sarah laugh?”

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «Fire fell in the morning».

And he also writes: [WSS] «[Christ left USA] The last messenger preached to those who could not be saved = it is the 3rd Pull with the Angel of Jesus».

[JBP] Remember to always keep in mind, and always look at all the angles, the Scriptures, the prophecies, how God would fulfill them at the moment, at the right time, where it meets… How was it that we read just now? Where [WSS] “it is a time that meets the conditions, that are parallel to the time in which it was fulfilled,” in other words, in which that prophecy was fulfilled before. Well, that which meets all those conditions for that prophecy to be repeated and fulfilled again, it would have that meaning (that prophecy, that Scripture) at that moment in which that Scripture is being fulfilled again, materialized again.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He goes on to saying… I am on page 41 at the bottom. I am reading from page 39 at the bottom, page 40, I am on page 41 at the bottom and I am going to turn to 42 [“SOULS THAT ARE IN PRISON NOW”]; he says [P. 41]:

[296] She said, “I didn’t.”

Said, “Yes, you did.” See?

297 Now, immediately after that, He entered Babylon, or went down into Sodom. He never found them ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «Elohim went down into Sodom», so the fire fell. He found Lot and his two daughters, said, “Get out of here right now.” See? It went out. He went down there. Remember, He [WSS] «Elohim» was on His road down. He sent messengers before…

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «Graham and Roberts», that is, Billy Graham and Oral Roberts.

[297] …sent messengers before…

Notice, that represented, at that time of our brother Branham (when he was and put it in type and figure): that the fourth Elijah was with the Bride, that is, with Abraham; and he spoke in several messages where he says that: [WMB] “Billy Graham and Oral Roberts were the messengers that were in Sodom and Gomorrah,”6 that is, in the gentile world.

That, see how he represented that there, which would be type and figure of what God would be doing in this end time.

[“SOULS THAT ARE IN PRISON NOW”] [P. 41]:

[297] He sent messengers before Him, but He went down Himself, right, to find out if all this thing was so. And He found it full of what? Painted-faced women. The Message to the doomed.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in the book of Quotations,7 let’s read something there, on page 159, paragraph 1418, it says:

1418 – “68 You see these little pockets going through the air, they call “saucers,” so forth. People so…That, well, we better leave that alone. “Hear all these people come up missing?” you say. Don’t hear from them; they’re standing there, and they’re not there.

That’s the way the Rapture is going to be. One of them will drop right down, and this terrestrial body will take on a celestial body. And they’ll be…hide, hair, or bones left; it’ll be transformed in a moment of time, dropping right out of space and taking Home that. We see all this going on now, and the—and the Pentagon wondering about these lights, and mystic lights, and everything they’re seeing in the—in the sky. You seen they had one here in the paper at Jeffersonville this week, and so forth, “a mystic light.” So, oh, they don’t know what that is. But listen, little children, It’s going to pick you up, one of these days. See? See? Don’t worry.

Remember, Jesus said, “As it was in the days of Sodom.”

69 What happened just before Sodom? God came down with some Angels, and They had an investigation judgment. Said, “I’ve heard the cry, that it’s so sinful, so great, so I’ve come down to find out whether it’s altogether the truth or not.” That right? Watch that main One that stayed with Abraham, could discern the thoughts was in Sarah’s heart, behind Him.

Now, you look around just a little bit and notice, see, watch what It’s doing, the same thing today. It’s an investigation judgment.

Why, after a while, the Church, when It can stay in that place, and every seed has been brought to its spot, they’ll be gone. They won’t know what happened to them. One will be going one way. See? One will be going over to the pastor’s house, and one will be going here, or down there, and, the first thing you know, they’re not there. For Enoch which was the type, “God took him, and he was found not.” Come down to investigate!” ([JBP] And there he draws a Star of David, there at the bottom).

And above, at the top part of that excerpt, he writes:

[WSS] «the transformation = flying saucers».

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He goes on to say. I am on page 42 of “SOULS THAT ARE IN PRISON NOW” [P.41]:

[297] What’d they do? Laughed at it.

298 What do they do today? The same thing ([JBP] that is, those are the scoffers). “I belong to the Assemblies. I belong to the Oneness. I’m—I’m…I’ve danced in the Spirit. Glory to God, I speak in…” All right, go ahead. “I’ll cut my hair if I want to. I’ll do this. I’ll—I’ll just say this. I don’t have to be baptized in Jesus’ Name. I—I don’t care what said. Paul is an old woman hater, anyhow. That’s a…” All right, go ahead.

299 One of these days, if you haven’t already, you’ll cross that line. You’ll never desire no more to do what’s right. Did you hear what I said? It’s a matter. Brother, sister, do you realize what’s been said? You’ll cross that line, and you’ll never want to do it.

[JBP] And they reach a point where they no longer even have respect for the Word. There will come a time when they will no longer have that reverential fear. But they will not realize that He is already as a Lion. There is no more mercy, there is no more turning back. When they try to cleanse their sins, they will not be able to; because neither He is on the Throne of Intercession in Heaven, nor are they receiving the One who has that mercy.

[WMB] “They spurned the mercy of God for the last time,”8 which is in those ministries; and by not receiving them, therefore, what awaits them is divine judgment.

[299] You’ll still hear the Gospel, sure, but you’ll never accept It. You can’t accept It. But the Gospel will be preached to the doomed, those that are Eternally lost, can’t get saved, no more. You’re already in that spot, and don’t know it. You think you’re living in pleasure, and dead while you’re alive.

[JBP] As I was saying, see?: [WSS] “They are pieces of flesh dressed, walking around, and they don’t know that they are dead already.”9 That is why you can’t pay attention to those pieces of flesh that go around talking and saying things and mocking and blaspheming, and speaking against the Divine Program. Don’t mess with them; leave them alone. Lest you get your piece too. So you better not listen to them, don’t pay attention to them, don’t listen to them, don’t read them; leave them; they are already dead even while being alive.

300 Oh, listen. All those who rejected the Message of the hour, before doom, the Gospel was preached to the doomed, first, before they went; without mercy [WSS] «Revelation 10:1-7», ([JBP] and he writes on the side): [WSS] «the lost». Noah, shut up [WSS] «silence for 7 days», was a testimony. God shut the door, after his Third Pull ([JBP] and writes): [WSS] «Noah, the Door». After the Third Pull at Sodom, the doors was shut. There was no more mercy. The ten couldn’t be found ([JBP] and he draws a Cornerstone and the ages; and where it says [WMB] “after the Third Pull,” there he draws an arrow upwards, towards the Cornerstone). And the lost had the Gospel preached, that could not be saved, because it was just… Been that way in every age, every age reject the Message before judgment.

[JBP] Remember that… There is a message that he preached: “GOD DOESN’T CALL MAN TO JUDGMENT WITHOUT FIRST WARNING HIM.”10 God always sends the warning, and then the judgment. And we have been warning you for some time now, before you receive divine judgment.

[“SOULS THAT ARE IN PRISON NOW”] [P. 41]:

[300] Been that way in every age, every age reject the Message before judgment.

301 Have they done it again? Is that appearing in a Pillar of Fire down here on the river? Is that appearing along in the Message of cutting the women, and throwing the places where it should be, and rebuking those ministers who takes the place with the denomination instead of staying on the Word? When, God has thoroughly vindicated that it’s Him, and not some poor ignorant unlearned thing like a man. It’s God! And have we now come to the spot that the Third Pull would return again to the lost, Eternally?

[JBP] And he writes on the side: [WSS] «3rd Pull», and he draws a pyramid and the ages below.

We go back to the message where we left off, here in the “GREETING TO THE PASTORS” of 2018:

[WSS] Also that same time is the time when three Angels appeared to Abraham and one of them was God, was the Lord; and the others, therefore, were the Archangels Gabriel and Michael who were having lunch with Abraham.

And then in the evening, two of them, Gabriel and Michael, went to visit Lot and dined with Lot there in Lot’s house. And already at dawn fire came from heaven, fire came down from heaven, because the Archangels Gabriel and Michael were sent with Their heavenly Armies to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah, because the time had come for those divine judgments to occur on those cities that had sinned against God.

A time parallel to this time in which we live, a time of much national and also international violence, much violence between nations, with wars and rumors of wars, and countless other problems, where we also know that there is fire prepared in atomic bombs, which is going to fall from the sky on some nations in a Third World War.

So, we are in a parallel time to the time of Noah, also to the time of Abraham and Lot, and of those cities that were destroyed, Sodom and Gomorrah, and other cities nearby; and also to the time of Elijah, and also to the time of Moses, parallel time to those times; and also the time of Jesus; because we are in the fourth generation, where all these things must come to pass.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in the same message “SOULS THAT ARE IN PRISON NOW,” on page 44, at the top of the page it says [P. 42]:

308 Again, also, in Genesis 15:16, if you want to put it down, 16, 15. He told Abraham, “Over in that land of the Amorites, their iniquity,” they were Gentiles now. “I can’t take you in there right now, ’cause the iniquity of the Amorites, the Gentiles [WSS] «gentile kingdom», is not fulled up yet. But I will judge them [WSS] «in Moses» ([JBP] Remember that he is a dispensational prophet). I’ll come in that fourth generation…

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «Roman empire in the feet of iron and clay». And on the “fourth generation” he writes: «(the Age of the Word) for the elect».

He goes on to say:

[308] “…and then I’ll judge that nation with a rod of iron.” [WSS] «Moses and Elijah» Is that right?

[JBP] And he also writes here: [WSS] «Rev. 11:3, and Rev. 19-11-21».

[JBP] And he also writes over here: [WSS] «The Fourth [the Roman empire, in the feet of iron and clay] Generation». That is, he writes: [WSS] «The Fourth Generation», and on the center he writes: [WSS] «the Roman empire, in the feet of iron and clay». «The judgment with a rod of iron». And he draws a pyramid and the ages at the bottom, (but only the last three) and he numbers them: [WSS] «1» «2» «3», and he writes on the Cornerstone: «4».

309 Has it been so long, that God’s longsuffering, the ministry constantly, through tape and everything else, has combed across the world, to see if there is one more? But maybe that last one come in just recently. Has it been the iniquity that’s been—been so long?

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He continues saying… I am going in parts, so that I don’t miss any writing; because this is one of the books that has more annotations —very, very important—, which we are going to see as we fulfill all those stages, which are contained in the Third Pull.

Look at something. I will pause here; maybe I had it for Sunday, but let’s read it today, because look at something very, very important; which…

At each time, the presence of a messenger of God is a great sign for humanity; and that messenger being present at that time that He sends him, where a stage, an age or a dispensation begins, there those mysteries contained in that new dispensation begin to open. And in order for it to be effective and to be fulfilled in each chosen of God of each age and each dispensation: The messenger opens that mystery; and it is fulfilled to the extent that the messenger is allowed to speak that mystery to that group, to those elect that have been called through that messenger.

For example, He couldn’t, in Paul’s time, open the mystery of the Coming of the Son of Man with His Angels, because then they would have obtained there the Rapturing Faith; and so with all the ages. Only the portion corresponding to each age or dispensation was spoken to them.

In other words, the presence of the messenger in each stage of the Divine Program, shows the Divine Program with the preaching, with what he is proclaiming; and that is what opens that mystery in the fulfillment of what that prophet is already speaking and preaching.

And we are going to put an example here (which is the one I had to speak to you in these next days, maybe on Sunday, but now we are going to speak about it today). For example, I was studying in one of the studies that we prepared for him (and the ministers also) in previous years, and in one of them they placed the quote from the book of The Seals, which is on page (of “THE SIXTH SEAL”)… page 362… We are going to match here to read, so that you can read as I read here from the study sheet that had been prepared for him on that occasion. I am going to start reading from page 362 [p. 428 in Eng.] at the bottom, where it says:

295 There you are.

[JBP] We read this a little while ago, but now with this that he wrote there, in this Bible study that had been prepared for him, and he wrote in a few parts there in this excerpt that was placed for him from the book of The Seals, from page 362 and 363; it says:

[296] Now notice. Don’t let it choke you. But, watch what opened that Seal [WSS] «fulfilled» ([JBP] “who fulfilled this Seal.” There it says), prophets! See? Whew! Amen! There you are.

297 Oh, we’re living in the eagle day, brother, head up among the clouds!

298 They opened ([JBP] in other words, we already know that this is ‘they fulfilled’; they opened and also fulfilled; he wrote): [WSS] «fulfilled» that Sixth Seal. They have power to do it. Amen! There is your Sixth Seal coming open [WSS] «being fulfilled».

[JBP] When I saw that, brothers and sisters… We are well but well, well advanced and well into everything that God will be fulfilling in this change of kingdom. Because with the presence of those ministries that are fulfilling the Sixth Seal, all things will be fulfilled as the Word will be spoken; because everything will be fulfilled by the spoken Word. Since the Creation, you notice that everything was created by the spoken Word.

[298] There is your Sixth Seal coming open [WSS] «being fulfilled». See?

299 Now we drop right back here, and Jesus spoke it would take place. Way back yonder in the Old Testament, back in Ezekiel, back in the old prophets, they spoke it would take place.

300 And here the Sixth Seal opened ([JBP] that is, opened, fulfilled, being fulfilled), and they say, “Well, that’s a mysterious thing. What did it?”

301 Here is the secret of it, the prophets, ’cause the Bible said so here. They can open it, any time they… ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «Make a reality, fulfill, materialize» They can do anything to nature they want to. And they do the same thing they did do, amen, ’cause they know how it’s done. Amen! Glory!

302 When I seen that, I just raised out of the chair and started walking up and down the floor. I thought…

[JBP] And you… And I am sincere, I also stood up and I said: “Lord!” When I read that which he wrote: that when they opened, in other words, they fulfilled…; in other words, when it is being opened is when it is being fulfilled. In other words, the presence of those Angels is the fulfillment of that Seal, and then they can do whatever they please with nature and with everything; when I saw that I said: “Oh, we are very, very close to everything that God will be doing for that change of kingdom to happen, that change from the kingdom of the gentiles to the Kingdom of God.”

He says [The Seals] [P. 428]:

[302] “Lord, how I thank You, Heavenly Father!”

303 There it is. That’s it. They opened that Sixth Seal ([JBP] that is, they fulfilled that Seal!). Amen! Watch them, “If any man hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth,” the Word. Holy Ghost come upon the apostles, you see. “Fire proceeded out of their mouth.”

304 Now notice over in Revelation 19, we see the same thing…

[JBP] And in the book of The Seals, he wrote there:

[WSS] «Rev. 19 / Moses and Elijah».

[JBP] We are going to open all this as God helps us. And notice how God is placing —as we are studying— all those Scriptures in order, so that they may be fulfilled as His Program is being carried out.

And the fulfillment of that Seal, you see, is that opening. With the presence of those ministries in that final stage: The Third Pull, then his presence is that fulfillment. And as we go deeper and deeper into that stage, the more all the contents of that Seal are being fulfilled; and fully: in the great tribulation.

Because notice that, before that, those ministries have to do with…, let’s see here, those ministries have to do with resurrection and transformation. Let’s go a little bit further, and I will look for it if I can find it as we speak, something about those ministries, that have to do with the resurrection and with our transformation also.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] I am on page 44 of the message “SOULS THAT ARE IN PRISON NOW.” It goes on to say [P. 43]:

[309] If Jesus is the same, which He is, Hebrews 13:8, His Message must be the same. (Fixing to close.) His action must be the same.

310 If the First and Second Pull is without question! Is there a question in your mind about the First and Second Pull? Did it come to pass just like He said? [Congregation says, “Amen.”—Ed.] Then why question the Third?

[JBP] And excuse me if you hear any machine noise; it is here behind this area of the little room and the pulpit, they are doing maintenance to the tarp, they are washing the tarp on that side (the boys). He continues:

[310] See? Why would you question It? The first two was identified by the Scripture. I’ve proved to you this morning that the Third is identified by the Scripture, too ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «The 3rd Pull».

[JBP] Remember that the Third Pull is scriptural.

311 Look upon the world, see where she’s at. Look how they have rejected the Truth, and how it’s been properly identified, the prophecy part. Now where we at? O God, be merciful! That makes my heart bleed on the inside ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «That makes my heart bleed». What about it? Where we at?

312 Remember, these seven peaks up there ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «west», they could tell you. It’s… There is not another peak beyond that. It’s on the Continental Divide. It goes right into the desert, from there on. Eternity sets in. Seven peaks, right on the Continental Divide. That’s right between right and wrong. And at the end of that, the Third Pull was the last Pull of the range. Is that right? See? All right.

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «The last peak is the Third Pull».

313 Noah went in, then after seven days [WSS] «7 ages», nothing happened, see ([JBP] and he also draws a pyramid, and writes): [WSS] «7 Thunders» ([JBP] and he also draws here a pyramid and the ages, and an arrow towards there, towards the Cornerstone). In seven days the judgment come ([JBP] When did the judgment come? At the end of those seven days). If only… Listen now, in closing. If only, in Noah’s time, they would’ve knew that sign! If they would have only knowed! Now I’m going to close. If they would have only knowed that sign, the world in that day!

[JBP] What was the sign that God was showing and making known to them back in Noah’s time? The prophet Noah! That was the sign that the world had to be seeing; because the greatest sign that God has on Earth is: a prophet. It says [“SOULS THAT ARE IN PRISON NOW”] [P. 43]:

[313] That, God proved here, by the reading of the Scripture, a while ago, He destroyed them people.

314 Not without mercy; mercy was sent to them by a prophet. They wouldn’t believe it. God is merciful, but, He sent mercy but they wouldn’t receive it. He always sends mercy, first ([JBP] And he draws a Star of David).

315 What if they would’ve knowed that sign was the end-time sign? ([JBP] And he writes): [WSS] «Mercy was sent through a prophet». And when they seen, all at once, salvation let up. Nobody, see. Just, the first thing you know, the door was closed. If they…There was only one person knowed that sign, that was Noah and his group. That was the only one knowed. When that door swung together, Noah knew it. Noah knew that was the finish. He knew it. That’s right. If you only knew the sign!

[JBP] And he writes there: [WSS] «Noah = Moses and Elijah with the 144,000 Jews».

And he also writes: [WSS] «Noah = the 144,000 Jews», that is, everything together.

And he writes: [WSS] «The salvation in the 7 ages is over».

[JBP] The salvation is already over in the ages. Salvation for people to receive Christ as their Savior, wash their sins in the Blood of Christ, be baptized in water in His Name, and receive the Holy Spirit: that ended, that is already concluded. There is no more time to be born again and obtain the theophanic body.

There is a stage that will come, which is to receive the Lord in His final manifestation: To receive the Lord in His First Coming and in His Second Coming, to understand it, to comprehend what the First Coming and the Second Coming is. Which also the Hebrew people will see and understand when they see the Second Coming and Its fulfillment, and receive it: they will be told of what the First one was.

The same is for all that denominational world, where they will be receiving the knowledge of the Second Coming of the Lord; but it will not be to obtain the eternal and glorified body; it will be so that the beast and his image (the image of the beast) will not mark them with the mark of the beast, and so they can give their lives in the great tribulation; and not be sealed by the beast, but be sealed by the Lord.

Which, in Revelation 7 and Revelation 14, we also see them already sealed there: the 144,000. In other words, that Seal of the living God will be placed in the 144,000; in other words, they will have the revelation of the Second Coming of the Lord. They will be receiving that Latter Rain, but they will also understand what the Former Rain was.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He goes on to say [“SOULS THAT ARE IN PRISON NOW”] [P. 43]:

316 Oh, if they would have only knew that sign, when they seen this One come in there, had been up there with Abraham!

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «Elohim went down into Sodom».

[JBP] And that, when we fully understand it, we will have a pretty clear picture of what he told us on that occasion, [WSS] that at some point he would tell us that mystery of those Archangels; that for many years he knew that mystery, but that he hadn’t been able to make it known; because in making known that great mystery, he would be giving the Rapturing Faith, and then the rapture would have already happened; but it wasn’t the time for that.

The time is now, today, that that is being made known; because he had already said that [WSS] “someday I will make it known.” And he in his physical body left. What He didn’t fulfill in one messenger, He fulfills in the next. Everything is simple in the Divine Program.

But being a mystery, that has to be opened through the Spirit of God. Is the one who reveals, “the one who discerners,” as Paul says11: “He discerns the intents, and the marrow and all things; piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul,” and all that (you know that Scripture).

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Let’s go for a moment here to the book of Zephaniah; in chapter 1, verse 2, it says:

2 I will utterly consume all things from off the land, saith the Lord.

3 I will consume man and beast; I will consume the fowls of the heaven, and the fishes of the sea, and the stumbling blocks with the wicked: and I will cut off man from off the land, saith the Lord.

4 I will also stretch out mine hand upon Judah, and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and I will cut off the remnant of Baal from this place, and the name of the Chemarims with the priests;

5 And them that worship the host of heaven upon the housetops; and them that worship and that swear by the Lord, and that swear by Malcham;

6 And them that are turned back from the Lord; and those that have not sought the Lord, nor enquired for him.

7 Hold thy peace at the presence of the Lord God: for the day of the Lord is at hand…

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In other words, there in… You can look it up there so we don’t stop here. It says:

[Habakkuk 2:20]:

20 But the Lord is in his holy temple: let all the earth keep silence before him.

[JBP] In other words: place the studies, and thus God will be opening the understanding of each one of God’s chosen ones; because if you start explaining what is already explained…; because the messenger has already brought everything; the messenger has already brought everything through the Message. And everything that is being spoken and read, is also written.

You on your own can’t explain anything; because he already, what he spoke in the Message…, and he wrote in his books what is not in the Message, which is what is being made known: what is written of all those messages, which was what was brought by the forerunner of the Second Coming of the Lord, which is what presents and points out what would be the Coming of the Son of Man with His Angels.

And all those writings are the ones that are being made known; are being read and are being placed in these studies; and thus the people of God are receiving all this Teaching that is being given under a Tent, from a Great Tent Cathedral.

In other words, it is up to the ministers to place that, and they also have to be part of listening to those studies. But remember, there is an order in the church: there has to be a minister, there has to be a song director; and so on, the order of the church.

A person can’t now say: “I can go my own way, and I can listen to everything here, without gathering.” He must have fellowship with the brethren in the church. Brother Branham says: [WMB] “To miss a Sunday is a sin before God.”12 You must gather and praise God, and glorify God with songs and praises, and then prepare to receive His Word.

Everything has a divine order, God has everything in order; and so He wants the Church to be in order too. God is a tidy God.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Verse 7 [Zephaniah, chapter 1]:

7 Hold thy peace at the presence of the Lord God: for the day of the Lord is at hand: for the Lord hath prepared a sacrifice, he hath bid his guests.

8 And it shall come to pass in the day of the Lord’s sacrifice, that I will punish the princes, and the king’s children, and all such as are clothed with strange apparel.

9 In the same day also will I punish all those that leap on the threshold, which fill their masters’ houses with violence and deceit.

10 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord, that there shall be the noise of a cry from the fish gate, and an howling from the second, and a great crashing from the hills.

11 Howl, ye inhabitants of Maktesh, for all the merchant people are cut down; all they that bear silver are cut off.

12 And it shall come to pass at that time, that I will search Jerusalem with candles, and punish the men that are settled on their lees: that say in their heart, The Lord will not do good, neither will he do evil.

[JBP] And there he draws a Star of David.

12 …The Lord will not do good, neither will he do evil.

[JBP] That is, they think that God will never…: “God is merciful; He is not going to do anything.” They don’t remember that God is also a consuming Fire.13

13 Therefore their goods shall become a booty, and their houses a desolation: they shall also build houses, but not inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, but not drink the wine thereof.

14 The great day of the Lord is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «Malachi 4:1», even the voice of the day of the Lord: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.

15 That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,

[JBP] And he writes there: [WSS] «Revelation

6:12-17,

19-17-21,

11:3-7,

11:15-19,

14:14-20,

17:14-18,

19:11-21».

[WSS] «Revelation 6:12-17», [JBP] that that is the opening of the Sixth Seal; which is this that we are also reading here. This Scripture is also – it tells us about divine judgment. Verse 16:

16 A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.

17 And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «because of the sin» against the Lord: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.

18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the Lord’s wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And there is a part… Now that we read here in verse 18, when it says: “Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of wrath”; I remembered… Let’s look it up here really quick.

Page 83 of this version of the book of “THE SEVENTIETH WEEK OF DANIEL,” in “THE SIXFOLD PURPOSE.” He is saying here (which we read recently)14 of the woman who said that [WMB] “she would not allow her cow to have anything to do with that religion.”15 Let’s read it to get the whole line. This is one of the occasions that he talks about that incident, that is, of that occasion, he says:16

147 I remember a woman standing at the door one night, of this church, laughed at me. And said, “I wouldn’t let my cow have the kind of religion he’s got!” Less than one hour, I was called to the hospital ([JBP] And he writes): [WSS] «The woman and the cow». Beautiful woman, about twenty-two years old, she was screaming, “Get that preacher here!” She was Catholic, by faith.

When I walked up, the old sister said, “You’re too late, Brother Branham. She died about five minutes ago.”

I said, “Can I see her?”

Said, “She screamed for you, in her last words, ‘Get that preacher, Brother Branham!’”

Her husband was there, hollering, “Say a prayer for her! Say a prayer!”

I said, “It’s too late now.”

148 I pulled the cover down. She had great big brown eyes. Beautiful woman; little freckles across her face; auburn hair; very attractive. She had suffered so hard till the freckles stood out on her face like pimples. Her eyes were bulged plumb out of their sockets, like that. And, course, her bowels and kidneys had acted, which is in the—in the…Everyone does that as they’re dying, mostly. And there she was, laying in that condition, her mouth open. And her lids here, had half covered the brown part of her eye. I’ll never forget it. That song come onto my mind.

Covet not this world’s vain riches (beauty, pomp)…

[JBP] And he tells another anecdote; he says:

149 I stood by the side of a man right over here in Port Fulton, dying. They called me to his bedside. And I prayed with him here at the altar one night. He put his arm around a woman.

[JBP] In other words, he is talking about how he was praying with him there, that that man was in bed; but that, he says that one night, that is, before he was bedridden, he says that they were praying… He says:

[149] And I prayed with him here at the altar one night. He put his arm around a woman. I said, “Take your arm from around that lady.”

He said, “I’m leading her to God.”

150 I said, “Not your arm around her.” I don’t believe in such stuff as that ([JBP] brother Branham said). He got angry with me. He stomped out the door.

[JBP] That is, you see?, he was… Look at why. There is always a reason. Look at the reason then he was… they called him to pray for him. Look at why he was there: he had been upset with brother Branham, he had been angry with him; because brother Branham told him to take his arm off around a lady when they were praying for her; and the excuse he gave was: [WMB] “I’m leading her to God.”

And you shouldn’t take advantage of being a minister to be putting your arms around her or hugging her, and with a lot of flattery, very smarmy17 to women, with the excuse that you are leading her to God. That is not right. And still trying —at this point— to be looking for profit, in terms of seeking, by position, girls or young women: it is not right to do that; and even more so if he is married, whether he is a minister or not.

And young women, don’t let them do that either: that they put their arms around you and hugging, and putting their arms around you, because we already see that that is not right, it is not correct. And you, girl, no matter who you are (minister or whoever you are, and whoever you are): don’t let them out their arms around you like that because he is a pastor or because he is someone important. That is not right. Don’t allow that.

[“THE SIXFOLD PURPOSE OF GABRIEL’S VISIT TO DANIEL”] [P. 71]:

[150] He got angry with me. He stomped out the door. I went to him, a little later, when he was dying. He looked me in the face, said, “Don’t pray for me, Brother Bill. I’m lost. I’m gone.” Said, “All I ever gained, has been gone.”

151 I stood right out here at the corner, a little piece from here, one day ([JBP] there he is telling another anecdote), to a man that called me to his bedside when he was dying. He said, “I always wanted such-and-such, and such.” He said, “But I never did serve the Lord ([JBP] this is on another occasion, of another person). Many times have I kept from going to the altar.” ([JBP] see, that is that he didn’t receive the Lord while there was a chance). He said, “Brother Branham, pray that God will let my little girl atone for the things that I have done. Maybe she can do something for the Lord.”

152 I said, “That can’t be done, brother. The things that you would have done is lost.” Hum!

153 Stood by a man, see him fight devils for twenty-four hours. Said devils was standing on his bedside with chains wrapped around their neck. Said, “Don’t let them get me!” Screaming; hold him in the bed. Said, “There he stands. Can’t you see it? It’s coming after me.” He had put off God, too long. Had big barns full of hay, full of wheat, fine race horses. A year before that, he cursed God to His face, slapped his wife for going to the tabernacle. You know what happened? Lightning struck his barn, and killed his horses, burnt up his hay. And the man died in some kind of a spell, fighting devils off of him.

154 And an old friend of mine (glory!) standing yonder ([JBP] and now he tells another anecdote), come to the end of the road. I said, “Are you going, dad?”

Said, “This is it, Billy.”

I said, “How is it?”

155 He said, “All well.”

[JBP] Look at the other part of these stories that he is talking about, of those who have taken advantage of the time while on this planet Earth, and have made contact with eternal life; look where he was going and what he was going to receive. He says:

155 He said, “All well.” Said, “Bring my children up along side the bed.” He put his old feeble hands upon each one of his children and blessed them. Told his two sons, said, “Hang up my hands, raise them up, like Joshua and Caleb did.”

[JBP] Listen to this anecdote carefully.

[JBP] I will read it again [“THE SIXFOLD PURPOSE OF GABRIEL’S VISIT TO DANIEL”] [P. 72]:

154 And an old friend of mine (glory!) standing yonder, come to the end of the road. I said, “Are you going, dad?”

Said, “This is it, Billy.”

I said, “How is it?”

155 He said, “All well.” Said, “Bring my children up along side the bed.” He put his old feeble hands upon each one of his children and blessed them. Told his two sons, said, “Hang up my hands, raise them up, like Joshua and Caleb did.” Wonder what he was going to say. He said:

Happy day, happy day,

Since Jesus washed my sins away!

He taught me how to watch and pray,

And live rejoicing every day.

We’ve got some of those things to come to, friends! No one but what desires to eat good food, drive a nice automobile, have the best that we can have. I don’t blame him. That’s all right. God wants you to have that, but:

Covet not this world’s vain riches,

That so rapidly decay,

Build your hopes on things Eternal,

They will never pass away!

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] See how that Scripture there of Zephaniah, chapter 1, verse 18, there it speaks to us that: “What shall it profit a man if he shall gain the whole world (in other words, I refer to that other Scripture,18 referring to this one) if he shall lose his soul?” And there it says on verse 18:

18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the Lord’s wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And on chapter 6, of the book of Revelation, says, verse 12:

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?

[JBP] That Seal is the Seal that will be fully fulfilled in the great tribulation.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Look at the message:

JESUS CHRIST, THE GOOD SHEPHERD, GATHERING HIS SHEEP
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Friday, July 8, 2011
(Second activity)
Veracruz, Mexico

Remember that there are crimes committed by individuals, but there are crimes committed by nations, there are sins committed by nations.

And now, we can see why God judged Sodom and Gomorrah, condemned them and destroyed them with fire; it was the divine judgment; that is why Gabriel and Michael descended with God to bring judgment there in Sodom and Gomorrah. That is why when the Angels, who are Gabriel and Michael, appeared to Lot, they told him: “We have come to destroy the city.”

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the message “DISCERNING THE BODY OF THE LORD,”19 it tells us on page 17 at the bottom:

129 That Angel of God Who came to Sodom, He come. He’s promised. Remember, that same Angel came. Anyone knows that That was God. It wasn’t that body, because the body was dust.

130 I spoke that to someone, not long ago, that, “That was God,” I said.

131 He said, a minister, he said, “Oh, now, Brother Branham, you don’t believe that Man was God?”

132 I said, “He was God. Abraham said He was. He called Him, ‘Elohim.’ That’s the Almighty God. Him; and two Angels.”

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «Elohim went down to Sodom».

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] On page 18, it says [“DISCERNING THE BODY OF THE LORD”] [P. 16]:

[132] He said, “Well, you thought He lived in a body?”

I said, “That’s so easy.”

133 We’re made out of sixteen elements; petroleum, cosmic light, and calcium, potash, so forth. God just gathered Him a little handful, He went, “Whew”…

[JBP] And they passed me a message in audio when brother Branham spoke on one occasion in that way of the breath of life; and when he did, he did: “WHEW!”20, something like that; you hear a loud blow – breath, a loud breath. He did “WHEW!” Something like that was heard in the audio.

[133] “Whew;” said, “step in there, Gabriel.” Um-hum. “Whew; step in there, Michael.” And breathed one for Himself.

[JBP] In other words, there he gave – he made three. Notice, for His own He breathed. In other words, there were three breaths: “WHEW! WHEW! WHEW!” You see? Three. There were three breaths: Michael, Gabriel; and also for Himself, for Elohim.

[133] Said, “I’ve heard Sodom is about ripe. Let’s go down and see. Let’s go down, ourselves. Abraham has been preaching, and others has been preaching.

[JBP] He writes: [WSS] «Elohim».

[WSS] «God in body with Gabriel and Michael».

134 And where did they come to? To the Elect. This One set behind, talked to Abraham, and Abraham called Him, “Elohim.” Watch that capital L, and see if it isn’t right. The Lord God Jehovah was in a body of flesh.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the message “TAKING SIDES WITH JESUS,”21 on page 15, says:

62 There’s three things could happen to me. It’s either the end of my road, and let this other one come on; I’ve opened up the road for him to take over, ’cause, remember, the one that comes to preach, will be on the Word, “Restoring the Faith of the children back to the fathers.” It could be the end of my road. It could be that He’s changing my ministry back into evangelism, for overseas. Or, it could be that He’s not going to call me anymore for an evangelist, and He’s taking me into the wilderness somewhere, to anoint me, to send me forth like the promised one is to come, I think.

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «Another will come = Christ will come in flesh».

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And remember, there in the book of The Seals, on page 277 [p. 327 in Eng.], it tells us:

[391] …may the Holy Spirit come down now, the white-horse Rider ([JBP] “The white-horse Rider,” is referring there to Revelation 19, that is, the Coming of the Lord with His Angels), while His Spirit, Spirit of Christ, in the face of antichrist, and call His Own.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And on 134 [p. 158 in Eng.] of the book of The Seals, it tells us:

[302] And when this Holy Spirit that we have becomes incarnate to us, the One that’s in our midst now in the form of the Holy Ghost, becomes incarnate to us, in the Person of Jesus Christ, we’ll crown Him King of kings. That’s right. See?

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «The Holy Spirit incarnate».

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And remember that also the antichrist, the man of sin, also comes incarnated. It says on page 146 [p. 172 in Eng.] (at the bottom) [The Seals]:

400 But, you see, when Christ come, a Sword went forth from His mouth, like a lightning flash. It went forth and consumed His enemies, and cast away the devil. It cut away everything else. And He come, His vesture dipped in blood, and on His thigh was written, “The Word of God.” Amen. Here He come, with His army, coming from Heaven.

401 That white-horse rider has been in the land all the time. He will change from antichrist. He does that, and becomes to a false prophet.

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «blood-stained garments».

[401] See, he first started, an antichrist, the spirit; then he become a false prophet; then, later, when the devil is cast out, he is incarnate then with the devil ([JBP] When will he be incarnate? When the devil is cast out, the accuser). Three stages! The first, he’s a devil, to begin with, a spirit of the devil; then he becomes a false prophet, teacher of a false doctrine; next thing, he comes as the very devil himself, incarnate. See? There he is.

402 And at the same time that this devil falls out of Heaven and becomes incarnate in a man, the Holy Spirit goes up and comes down in carnate men.

[JBP] And he writes:

[WSS] «The Holy Spirit incarnate in a man».

[JBP] And let’s see here for a moment, let’s see if here in this other… the other book of The Seals that he has there, he writes… where it says: [WMB] “The Holy Spirit goes up and comes incarnate in a man,” look, he writes: [WSS] «in all His fullness. Rev. 7:2, 11:3-7», which is the Two Olive Trees: Moses and Elijah.

And where it says: [WMB] “The Holy Spirit goes up,” he draws a little Stone and the ages, and a little arrow to the Cornerstone.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] It goes on to say here in “DISCERNING THE BODY OF THE LORD,” where we left off, it says [P. 16]:

[134] The Lord God Jehovah was in a body of flesh.

135 You just don’t realize what God is. God can just, “Whew.” I’m glad I know that God. One of these days I won’t be nothing but maybe volcanic ashes, but He’ll speak and I’ll come to life again. He’s God.

[JBP] Look, but someday He will speak.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And look how the Scripture of the Gospel according to John, chapter 5, verse 28, in an excerpt…, in other words, in a Bible study page and they put that piece of the quote, in other words, that excerpt of quote from the Gospel according to John, chapter 5, verse 25. It says:

25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «of the Holy Spirit in flesh».

See how the resurrection will be brought about by the spoken Word; how the transformation will also be.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Notice, what I had told you at the beginning about Moses and Elijah, on page 33 of “CHAPTER 4 OF REVELATION,” that is “REVELATION CHAPTER FOUR #1”22; page 33 it says:

177 John, called and summonsed by the Lord Jesus, promised by God back there that he would see the coming of the Son of man. Peter, James, and John, and them standing present, when Jesus spoke to them and said, “There’s some standing here will not taste of death until they see the Son of man coming.” He didn’t say “all” was standing there, but “some.” And they went, few days after that, and saw the order of the resurrection rehearsed, and the coming of the Lord.

178 Elijah represented the ([JBP] he said “the dead saints,” but there he corrected) dead saints… I mean Moses, and be resurrected. Elijah represented the translated bunch. Remember, Moses was first, and then Elijah. Elijah was to be the messenger of the last day, that with him and his group would come the resurrection… would come the…well, it would come the Rapture, I mean. Moses brought in the resurrection and Elijah brought in the Raptured group. And, there, both of them was represented right there.

[JBP] Notice…, and he writes: [WSS] «Moses = brings the resurrection».

And he writes on the side, also over here:

[WSS] «The order of the resurrection».

«Elijah = the raptured».

«Moses = brings the resurrection».

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He goes on to say [“REVELATION CHAPTER FOUR, PART I”] [P. 29]:

179 And after a while they noticed then, and they seen, and Peter said, “Let’s build three tabernacles. Let some go under the law, and let some go under Elijah, and let’s go (some of them) this way.” ([JBP] that is, under Jesus; he writes): [WSS] «(under Jesus)».

180 And while they were yet speaking, a Voice spoke and said, “This is My beloved Son, hear ye Him.” And when they looked, they seen Jesus only, everything had wilted into One.

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «Everything had shed into One».

How will the resurrection take place? By the spoken Word; for [John 5]:

25 …when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.

And that is where he writes: [WSS] «of the Holy Spirit in flesh».

It will be the Holy Spirit incarnate in a man, who will speak all that he has to speak and all that corresponds to the divine promises for this end time. And one of them is: the resurrection, and the other: our transformation.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He goes on to say, where I left off around here, of the message…, I am reading “DISCERNING THE BODY OF THE LORD,” he says [P. 16]:

[135] …but He’ll speak and I’ll come to life again. He’s God.

136 My wife said, not long ago, said, “Billy, you’re about bald-headed.”

I said, “I haven’t lost a one of them.”

She said, “Where they at?”

137 I said, “Tell me where they was before I got them, I’ll tell you where they are waiting for me to come.”

138 It’s right. “There is not one hair of your head shall perish.” The God of Heaven, [Blank spot on tape—Ed.] Who controls all things, will say, “William Branham,” or so forth, “come forth,” ([JBP] notice, the Word will be spoken) and I’ll come in His likeness. Hallelujah!

139 That same God, by the Holy Ghost, is dwelling among us, tonight, in the Shekinah glory, proving Himself by the same natural signs that He did.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Our brother William continues saying here… I am in the message “JESUS CHRIST, THE GOOD SHEPHERD, GATHERING HIS SHEEP”; he goes on to say:

[WSS] And now, we can see these things that are in the Bible; and that, seeing that we are living in the Last Day and that these things will be repeated…; because it says that the Coming of the Son of Man will be as in the days of Noah and as in the days of Lot.

In the days of Noah: divine judgment came upon the nations, and consequently, upon the individuals of those nations. And it was the judgment of the destruction of mankind at that time; but Noah and his family escaped.

So also in the time of Lot (who was the very type of Abraham): God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, and Lot and his family escaped; and except Lot’s wife, Mrs. Lot, who looked back and became a statue of salt.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the book of Quotations,23 on page 105, paragraph 906, it says:

906 – “[391] I pray that You will save every one, Lord.

392 May there come forth a revival of the just, and a great Power come among the Church just before Its going. I…It’s not hard to pray that, because You promised it. And we’re looking, Lord, for that third pull that we know that will do great things for us in our midst.” [WSS] «3rd Pull».

[JBP] And above he writes: [WSS] «Great power will come upon the Church. It is a promise».

And he, in one of the studies as well (in one of the studies that were prepared for him), in that same excerpt that we read from the book of Quotations, he writes next to that same excerpt that was placed there, page 105, paragraph 906, he writes next to it: [WSS] «The 3rd Pull with the Two Olive Trees»; in other words, the Third Pull is the one that will be fulfilled by those Two Olive Trees.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in 1407 it says, from the book of Quotations24… Let’s see over here, because that quote was also placed there; page 157, it says:

1407 – “94 I’m only building. The hour is close at hand when you’re going to see something happen, when something is going to take place.”

[JBP] Remember in the book of The Seals, when he says: [WMB] “Something’s got to come, something’s got to come to change this Church. You know that, something has to come!”25 And he wrote there: [WSS] «in the 7 Thunders, the Rapturing Faith»26, therefore, it is the Rapturing Faith.

He says [Quotations]:

1407 – “[94] …when something is going to take place. And all this background here has only been laying a foundation for a short, quick Message that will shake the whole nations.

95 Why I been picking on women, it’s just been laying up here for something that you can hit it right on the head, with it.”

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «[The foundation for] a short Message will come and will shake the nation».

And he also writes:

[WSS] «The Gospel of the Kingdom».

And also above there he writes… In the little part here (you can hardly make it out a little bit); but in the…, he writes here, in this quote that was placed in this Bible study (which was the same there: 1407), he writes next to it: [WSS] «3rd Pull»; where it says: [WMB] “you’re going to see something happen,” there he makes an arrow and writes: [WSS] «3rd Pull».

In other words, that is what that quick Message contains; [WMB] “a short quick Message,” it says. That is, he points it out as the Third Pull.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And on 11-A, paragraph 112, it says [Quotations]27:

112 – “[239] Can’t you see we’re at the end time? It’s all over, the next thing will be a sweep that’ll grab that little group together, in a month or so she’ll be gone, as soon as she is gathered together. Well, we’re at the end, there is no hopes left nowhere. Run to Christ, people!” [WSS] «Moses and Elijah».

[JBP] And he also writes: [WSS] «One month», «in 30 days» and also a little Stone. And he writes above: [WSS] «a sweep = in a month».

[JBP] And also in that Bible study, they also placed that excerpt of that message, and he wrote next to it: [WSS] «The 3rd Pull».

See all that he pointed out to us there as the Third Pull, that is, what the Third Pull would be. He gave us a great number of details that I have been reading to you now in order to have it in this Bible study, and thus to have a clearer picture each time of what the fulfillment of that Third Pull is.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] It continues saying… here our brother William says in the message “JESUS CHRIST, THE GOOD SHEPHERD, GATHERING HIS SHEEP”:

[WSS] And now we are living in the end time, where the things that already happened will be repeated; that becomes the type and figure of what will be happening in this end time.

In other words, we are in times parallel to the time of Noah and Lot; and therefore, many terrible things will be happening upon the nations and upon individuals; but also great wonderful things will be happening, great blessings upon all the believers in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

Upon all believers in Christ who are children of Abraham by faith in Christ: beautiful things will be happening, great blessings from God.

God will be opening the understanding of all the children of God to understand the Word, to understand those divine mysteries, to understand all these things that must happen; to get closer to God, to seek God more; to hold on more and more to God every day, as Jacob held on to God that night, a whole night, and when dawn was already breaking he was still holding on to God, to the Angel of God; in other words, he was holding on to Christ in His heavenly body.

And he didn’t let go.

And the Angel said to him: “Let me go, let me go, I have to go, dawn is breaking.”

And Jacob said: “I will not leave you, I will not let you go, until you bless me.”

[JBP] And so all the children of God will say in this end time: “We will not let go of the manifestation of God in the end of time, in the end time, in the fulfillment of the Tent Vision, in the fulfillment of the Third Pull, until we are transformed! We will not let go of that Angel, we will not let go of that ministry, until God fulfills all that He promised for each one of us: which is our transformation,” which that precedes the resurrection.

For He will speak, and the dead will resurrect first, and when we see them we will be transformed.

It has been really a great blessing for me to speak these words to you on this occasion, which I have been enjoying all these days in all that I have been studying. And there are still a lot of things for which you can be talking about this subject, which in other upcoming studies we will be doing.

For this study we will place the title: “IN THE 3RD PULL: THEY HAD TO RECOGNIZE HIM.”

May God bless you greatly, and keep you always holding on to that final manifestation, where you will obtain the Rapturing Faith, you will obtain the transformation; in other words, you will obtain what we are longing for so much: to leave from here, soon, to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.

But first we are going to shake this world and we are going to leave everything in confusion, and we are going to do it as it has never been done before in the history of mankind; and then we will be taken to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. But remember that it is always under the direction of the Lord.

May God help us all; continue helping and blessing our brother Miguel Bermudez Marin, and all the ministers in all places and all the brethren; because what we want is to continue growing in this glorious knowledge, which is making known to us the open mystery of the Seventh Seal, the mystery of the Second Coming of the Son of Man with His Angels, which contains —that revelation— the Seven Thunders, which is the mystery being opened for us to obtain that Translation Faith, that Rapturing Faith.

Remember: we are being tested to be adopted, as God did there with His Son Jesus; and Moses and Elijah were there.

May God bless you, may God keep you; and continue having a day (today, Thursday, November 17 of this year 2022) full of blessings from the Lord, and also tomorrow night, and all these next days. And all the days that we are on this planet Earth in these bodies: May we continue to enjoy and be happy, and thankful to God who has allowed us to live in the most glorious time of all times: the time where we will be transformed.

And I was about to finish, but I have to read you this excerpt, this portion here from the book of The Seals; and with this I finish, I finish for today, with this greeting, with this I conclude this talk. On page 373 [p. 440 in Eng.] of the book of The Seals:

[391] …for we realize we have just a short time. And the Church might go at any time.

392 The Lamb might, at any time, leave the sanctuary up There, or the Throne of sacrifice, come forth from the Throne of God where the sacrifice lays, and then it’s over; there is no more hopes for the world; she is finished. Then she goes into flusterations, of great spasms of earthquakes, and—and great shakings like it was at the resurrection. And—and, the—the…

393 As Christ rose from the grave, when the saints rise, the same thing will take place. Lord, it could be at any minute. We’re watching for that glad day to arrive.

394 Take Your children under Your arm, Father, now. Draw Your little lambs to Your bosom. Grant it. And feed them on the Word, till they’re in strength for service.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] May God bless you, keep you, strengthen you!, more and more each day; and continue to prepare you for your adoption.

“IN THE 3RD PULL: THEY HAD TO RECOGNIZE HIM.”

It has truly been a great blessing for me to speak these words to you and to read to you all these Scriptures, which, I ask the Lord to incarnate in your hearts.

“IN THE 3RD PULL: THEY HAD TO RECOGNIZE HIM.”
