THE MYSTERY OF THE FOUR TYPES OF GROUND
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Wednesday, November 26, 1997
Ji-Parana, Rondonia, Brazil
Scripture: Matthew 13:11 / 13:16-23
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] There he, our brother William, used the Scripture of the Gospel according to Matthew, in chapter 13, verse 10 to 11… That is, then he explained the parable of the sower, of this same chapter 13, but on verse 16.
And we read in Matthew, chapter 13, verse 23 (so as not to read the entire chapter; we will read it once brother William reads it):
23 But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
[JBP] And there he, in this Bible, he writes there: [WSS] «Those who understand».
THE SOWER SOWING THE SEED OF THE WORD
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Sunday, April 24, 2016
San Salvador, El Salvador
That good ground, that good heart in which the Word was sown, will produce fruit, because it is good ground.
And how many are typified in that good ground, who are present here? That is why we are here, because we are represented in the good ground that hears and understands the Word.
That is why the Bible studies, the preaching, the teaching of the Word is so important; like in the days of Jesus and the apostles, when the Word was taught so that everyone would know the Divine Program pertaining to the time of Grace, the Dispensation of Grace. And now we have reached the end time.
Let’s remember that the one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man, Christ; and the good ground is us, who hear and understand the Word; and bear fruit: some at a hundredfold, some at sixtyfold, and some at thirtyfold, all bear fruit; and the smallest number that Jesus placed is: thirtyfold.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Now, remember, if you have the… In the April Bible Study, there on page 4571… This Study I think is the thickest one, because in that month it wasn’t divided in…, by parts (in other words, April I think it is only one). In the April one, on page 457, there was placed that writing, where our brother William wrote there:
[WSS] «The good ground as:
Individual: the children of God».
«The elect [gentiles]: at 100×1».
«The Hebrew elect: at 60×1
[the 144 thousand Hebrews, Rev 7:2-5, 14:1]».
«The rest of the children of God: at 30×1, of the gentiles and the Hebrews».
[JBP] And there is the rest of the 144,000 and the rest of Christianity, which includes the foolish virgins.
And see how the position of the 144,000 is greater than that of the foolish ones. They are the eunuchs; and they are in the Millennium, and the foolish ones are not. That is why they carry that second place of producing that fruit as good ground at 60×1.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And… see, also here in the notebook…, in this notebook it also says:
[WSS] «The spoken Word is the original seed / Matthew 13».
[JBP] And he also writes further down:
[WSS] «Every seed must be sown in the good ground so that it bears fruit according to its kind.
She comes in and through the messenger of every age or dispensation; and Jesus Christ, the Son of Man, sows that Word».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And see on page 91, paragraph 785, it says [Quotations]:2
785 – “ The Word of God, and watch It being made real.” Cause, It’s a seed. And when It’s sowed, It’ll take Life. It’ll produce just what It’s talking about. If it doesn’t, then it isn’t God’s Seed. Or, the sower didn’t know how to sow It; He wasn’t sent of God, to sow Seeds. He might be sowing Them on top of a rock or something. See? So you—so you see, the sower sowing the Seed, God takes care of It, It falls in the right place.”
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «The Sower is the Son of Man».
And above: [WSS] «The seed of the spoken Word produces what was spoken». And he draws a Cornerstone and the ages there, and a Star of David.
We had already read that one.3 But for it to remain here in this Study as well.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Now look at this other writing from this same notebook, there he writes…, I saw that we hadn’t read it in that Bible Study, it was just that sheet; but here we are going to have this one that says:
[WSS] «The good ground as: The Mystical Body of the Lord Jesus Christ in each age».
[JBP] Because in every age it is the Son of Man who sows; and that is where it produces… See? In every age… There is the seventh [WSS] «7» and the eighth «8». And in every age it is the Son of Man sowing that spawn, that seed.
[JBP] But remember that it is sown, but not harvested; because if it is harvested in that time, look at what happens… And when is it that that harvest must happen? It says in the same chapter 13 of Matthew…, it continues on verse 24:
24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
[JBP] See, in each age He went sowing the seed.
25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers ([JBP] and the reapers are the Angels: the ministries of Moses and Elijah), Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
[JBP] In other words, it would be at the time of the harvest that this separation would be happening.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] See, in the same chapter 13, verse 36 [Matthew]:
36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.
37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;
38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
[JBP] There he wrote: [WSS] «Rev. 14:14-20».
40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;
42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
[JBP] And there He explained to them the parable of the wheat and the tares.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He continues saying [“THE SOWER SOWING THE SEED OF THE WORD”]:
[WSS] Now we find that Christ also said: “Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up (rooted up and cast into the fire)” [Matthew 15:13]. In other words, the time will come when only the believers in Christ will live in the Millennial Kingdom.
The tares do not pass the great tribulation to enter the Kingdom of the Messiah. He who was sown and the enemy uprooted what was sown in the heart, also does not pass into the Kingdom of the Messiah, into the Kingdom of the Lord. He did not enter the Kingdom of God. Because to enter the Kingdom of God, Christ says: “You must be born again”; as Christ said to Nicodemus in John, chapter 3, verses 1 to 3: “Verily, verily I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot enter the Kingdom of God.”
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Also in the message:
THE GOOD GROUND
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Sunday, August 27, 1989
Santiago de Chile, Chile
And we have reached the end time, we have reached the third dispensation; and the Message of the third dispensation has emerged…
[JBP] Now, notice how he speaks there (at that moment) that we had reached the third dispensation, which he is referring to the Dispensation of the Kingdom. Potentially we were in the Dispensation of the Kingdom. And we are going to see that later on, of what something potential is; because then, in 2016, 2017 still, he was telling us: [WSS] “The Dispensation of Grace is about to conclude.”4 But hadn’t he said 30 years ago that we were already in the Dispensation of the Kingdom? Potentially we were.
[WSS] …and the Message of the third dispensation has emerged, and multitudes have heard that Message, they have also read it; they have heard it through the radio and also through the television and also through the different people, ministers who have preached it, and they have also been in activities where we have been preaching the Message of the third dispensation, the Gospel of the Kingdom. They have also read the Message through the newspapers.
And the four groups have been manifested: some along the path, some as the stones (that is, stony places), others as or among thorns. The seed has fallen, has been watered, scattered, and has fallen in different places; but the heart and mind of each person has been in different conditions, the heart of some and the heart of others.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Now, see, in the book of The Seals, on page 410 says: [p. 484 in Eng.]
 Someone said, “Why, Brother Branham, people regard you as a prophet.”
Now, I don’t say I was a prophet. Nobody hears me to say that. But I’ll say this, that if—if you did do that, if you regard it…
Said, “Why don’t you teach people how to receive the Holy Ghost, and how to get this, and how to get great spiritual gifts and help the church?”
How can I teach them algebra when they won’t even listen to their ABC’s? That’s right. ([JBP] he writes there): [WSS] «algebra» ([JBP] and he draws a Star of David). You do these little things. Get down here at the bottom and brush it off, and start right. Amen. All right.
220 What was I talking about, anyhow? Let’s see. I didn’t mean to get off that subject. Excuse me, see. All right. “Some of the… some of us are mixed up. Is the Elijah the same as the…” Yeah, uh-huh, that’s right.
No. This Elijah that will come to the Gentiles, will be a Gentile anointed with that spirit…
[JBP] And there he writes: [WSS] «Elijah».
In this book he draws a Star of David.
And here in this other one he writes: [WSS] «Elijah» and he writes: [WSS] «it is a spirit».
 …will be a Gentile anointed with that spirit, because God used that same spirit to bring His people out of chaos every time ([JBP] notice how he uses that spirit to lead the people out of chaos). And it served His purpose well, so He comes it right back down again. Because, see…
Cause, now, if He uses a high-polished, educated, that’s the kind it would catch.
221 He brings a man that hardly knows his ABC’s, and can’t pronounce his words right, and everything like that; some old wilderness something out yonder somewhere, and brings It in and shoves right down to that simple-minded people. [Brother Branham snaps his finger once—Ed.] And they get It, like that. They get It, see. If It come, and collar…
222 Like Paul said, “I didn’t come to you with the polish of an education, but I come to you in the Power of the resurrection. ([JBP] and he writes there): [WSS] «Paul»” It taken God three and a half years, down in Arabia there, to knock it out of him, his education. Took—took Him forty years to get it out of Moses. See? So there you are. That’s…
[JBP] There he draws a Star of David.
And he writes: [WSS] «Moses».
 I don’t say God don’t…I’m not supporting illiteracy now, but I’m—I’m trying to tell you it don’t take…Education don’t…
223 The wisdom of this world is contrary. Education has been the biggest hindrance that the Gospel has ever had.
[JBP] Look, he writes there: [WSS] «Education = the greatest hindrance the Gospel has ever known».
[JBP] That is why in the writing that we read some time ago, where he says…, when Jesus said: “Go into the world and preach the Gospel to every creature; he that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, but he that believeth not shall be damned,”5 he says: [WSS] «He did not command to build hospitals or to build schools».6
See? That is why it is a hindrance for the work that God sent from the time that Jesus was resurrected and sent that work to the Church: it was to preach the Gospel. And it is, education, as he says there: [WSS] «The greatest hindrance the Gospel has ever known»; both the Gospel of Grace and also in this time: The Gospel of the Kingdom, which is being preached.
 If we didn’t have education, we wouldn’t have all these big seminaries and things that we got now. It’d be people, simple-minded, who would listen to the Word.
[JBP] The things that will happen and occur in the Millennium: “The Earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of God”7; it will be [filled] of the knowledge of God and His Program.
 But they’re so polished and messed up, and tightened up out there, although, them organizations, till that they’re going to stay with it. That’s all. They take on that spirit. [WSS] «know-it-all».
[JBP] And he also writes: [WSS] «Rapturing Faith», and he draws a Pyramid and the ages.
So that you also have the drawing he made here in this other book, because I had it open there.
 Did you ever take a good woman, marry into a low-down man? That low-down man either becomes a—a good man like the woman is, or the woman becomes low-down as he is.
[JBP] That is like… If you have it there, the one in “The Words to the Bride,” there is a part there that he speaks something too. That is in “CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY OF GOD REVEALED,” and we also had it placed on a little card here… Let’s read that little part there; it is in a bookmark as well. We didn’t have it to read it, but since that little part came out there… If not, there is also this part in the book of Quotations, around page 106 [paragraph 921-922]. (Let’s see if we can find that one… I think I should have the bookmark there on the desk).
We are studying. Thus also in classrooms of university, there are times when there are also these pauses like this. (Look, here I have it! I turned the… and here I have the bookmark8).
Remember when brother William said to have this in the Bible, and he…? Well it was…, I turned the page and it was there on page 106, 107, of “CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY OF GOD REVEALED”; because it is from this message. So it’s good that you have it.
And those words to the Bride are very important to have them, and read them from time to time, because they are of great help to us, because brother Branham spoke to us there…
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Notice, our brother William says, speaking of those words… That was on January 8, 2011, some words that he spoke:
WORDS OF GREETING
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Saturday, January 8, 2011
Via telephone from Cayey, Puerto Rico
to Bogota, Colombia
…we have to be prepared, keeping ourselves well united in divine love; always remembering the words of Reverend William Marrion Branham: “Words to the Bride,” having them as a bookmark in our Bibles, and also in our pocket ([JBP] look) to always read them; so that we are prepared to always keep ourselves steadfast in the Divine Program. Because as in all times there were spiritual struggles, there are and there will be in our time too.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And brother Branham says… this was of the message “CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY OF GOD REVEALED,”9 of July 28 of ‘63, says (it is in paragraph 921 of Quotations; only a small part that was placed there; page 106):
Words to the Bride
80 Love one another, above everything. Love one another. Don’t…No matter what the devil tries to say! Now you’re all one great big sweet group now, but remember my warning, see, Satan won’t let that stay that way. No, sir. He’ll shoot everything, if he has to bring somebody in to make his target. He’ll bring some critic…
[JBP] There are always critics at all the times.
 He’ll bring some critic or unbeliever in ([JBP] now, it’s not that he will bring them from outside; it’s from inside) and sit him down, and cause him to fellowship with you under the quietness and things, and then he’ll shoot…
[JBP] They are going to start to: smooth-talk, and very friendly, very cunning; because that type of person are very cunning.
 …and then he’ll shoot that guy with some kind of a poison stuff, and he’ll start through the church with it. Don’t you take sides with it. Don’t you have nothing to do with anything else. You stay right loving and sweet and kind to one another. Pray for that man, that he’ll be saved too, or that woman, or ever who it is ([JBP] see, the devil can use a man or a woman) just pray for them. And stick one with another.
81 And stay with your pastor. See, he’s the shepherd, and you give him respects ([JBP] and so it is in every place, in each congregation: you must have respect for your pastor.). He’ll lead you through, and, ’cause he’s ordained of God to do so.
82 Now do you remember that?[Congregation says, “Amen.”—Ed.] The enemy will come. And when he does, just cling that much closer together. And the one that the devil is using for an enemy will either get out or come in and be one of you. That’s all.
[JBP] That is the part we were reading in the book of The Seals on page 411, when he places that example there: [WBM] “That low-down man either becomes a good man like the woman is, or the woman becomes low-down as he is.”
And there our brother Branham continues to say [“CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY OF GOD REVEALED”] [P. 11]:
83 Don’t never clan among one… or—or talk, make yourself clannish. We are one. I couldn’t say, “Left hand, I’m—I’m mad at you, I’m going to take you away ’cause you’re not a right hand.” He’s my left hand. I want him to stay there. Even the little tip of my finger, I want to stay right there, every little part of my body stay right there. And God wants us, as a body of believers, to stay right exactly with one another, right at with one another.
[JBP] In other words, the Mystical Body of believers from age to age is the body that is represented in the sons and daughters of God of every age; and they remain united.
Because the Mystical Body of Christ is being built; and in this final stage —which is the most glorious stage, the stage of the Most Holy Place— that place is filled with those living stones, which are those that are represented in a hundredfold.
And brother William spoke about it. We are going to see that important part in a moment. He says:
84 And now you’ve got tapes on that. You’ve got tapes on what we believe. You’ve got tapes on discipline in the church, how we behave ourself in the church of God, how we got to come here together and sit together in Heavenly places. Don’t stay home. If God is in your heart, you can’t hardly wait for them doors to open out yonder, to get in here to fellowship with your brothers. If you don’t—don’t feel that way, then I tell you, it’s time you got to praying.
85 Cause, we’re in the last days, where the Bible exalted, or, exhorted us to—to, “Much more as we see that day approaching,” to love one another with Christian love and Divine love, “to assemble ourselves together in Heavenly places and—and—and Christ Jesus,” and love one another. “This will all man know you are My disciples, when you have love one for the other.” That’s right. Stay right together.
86 If the brother, you think he’s a little wrong, or the sister, say…
[JBP] Now remember, it is, that is the part from Sunday…, we have read it, where he speaks to us that: [WMB] “We must honor the resurrection (which was Sunday), going to the service.”10 (he says something like that); and that… Also in other places he says that: [WMB] “To not go on a Sunday is a sin before God.”11
86 If the brother, you think he’s a little wrong, or the sister, say, “Lord, don’t let me never have the root of bitterness spring up, ’cause it’ll—it’ll affect him, and it’ll take the Christ right out of my life.” That poison acids of malice, and jealousy, and hatred, that will just take the Holy Spirit right away from you. It will run Him from the tabernacle here. It’ll kill the Spirit of God, or drive It away from here, hurt your pastor. It’ll do everything. See? Don’t you do that.
87 You just wax that much closer together. Draw up the… Take the buckle, as the brother testified, a minister here the other night, about having a buckle, seeing it in a vision. Just, that buckles on the whole armor of God. Just pull her on, tighten up, move right up close to one another. Love one another, anyhow. Talk nice about one another, say nice things about one another, and then God will bless you.
[JBP] And those words, as he says there: [WSS] “Always have them.”
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And look, there we fulfilled that part where we read them today. It wasn’t there to be read and we read it. That little part entered well where brother Branham continues saying there [The Seals]:
 That low-down man either becomes a—a good man like the woman is, or the woman becomes low-down as he is.
224 That’s the reason He said, “Come out from among them, when I’m getting ready to take that Rapture.” You got to have some kind of faith that’ll take you out of here.
[JBP] A certain kind of faith, which is the one that is going to be producing that rapture. That is, the faith that the Bride needs is the Rapturing Faith that is in the Thunders, that is in the Teaching under Tent.
And he writes there: [WSS] «Rapturing Faith».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He says that on page 104 [p. 125 in Eng.] of the book of The Seals:
75 And then there is coming forth seven mysterious Thunders that’s not even written at all. That’s right. And I believe that, through those Seven Thunders, will be revealed in the last days in order to get the Bride together for rapturing faith. Because, what we got right now, we—we wouldn’t be able to do it. There is something. We’ve got to step farther. We, we can’t have enough faith for Divine healing, hardly. We’ve got to have enough faith to be changed, in a moment, and be swept up out of this earth. And we’ll find that, after a while, the Lord willing, find where It’s written.
[JBP] And there you already have what he wrote on those pages.12
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He continues to say in the message “THE GOOD GROUND,” says:
[WSS] We all want to bear fruit a hundredfold; and we are in the dispensation and in the age of bearing fruit a hundredfold. And these people who hear and understand the Message, discover that they are the good ground and bear the fruit relevant to the age in which they live.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Look in the message “IT IS THE RISING OF THE SUN,”13 on page 24, says:
 …the Dynamics strike That! But It strike a chicken, it won’t do no good. But when It strikes the eagle, he moves out. Amen! The Dynamics with the Mechanics! See what I mean? That is, if he is a true eagle now, he will “understand.”
159 Let me straighten a little Scripture here for you. I think we’re off of the phone, but we are still here. Saint John 5:24, Jesus said, “He that heareth My Word, and believeth on Him that sent Me, has everlasting Life ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «hears = understands».” Now look, I go down the street and just take that literally, what It is, without the spiritual understanding…Not making It say nothing else, but just saying what It says, see, the right word there, in the Greek, in the original, it says, “He that understandeth My Word.”
[JBP] In other words, brother Branham says that that part there that says: “He that heareth my Word…,” in the original says: “He that understands my Word.”
160 Now, to prove that’s right. I go down here ([JBP] now, there our brother Branham says: [WMB] “just take that literally”), and here’s a drunk coming along the street, and with some other man’s wife on his arms, and cussing, and taking God’s Name in vain, and everything else like that. “Say, did you hear what that preacher said? ([JBP] That is, they ask him, that person). Did you?” “Yeah, I heard It!” That don’t mean he’s got Eternal Life. See? See?
“He that understandeth My Word,” he that is an eagle!
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] That is, that small part there is in the book of Quotations, in paragraph 1297 (at the bottom of page 145).
He writes there: [WSS] «He who understands the Word» (so you can place it there below).
[JBP] And on the other page, that is in the continuation of the paragraph, there he writes: [WSS] «Eagle».
And he writes: [WSS] «He who understands My Word has eternal life».
And he draws a Pyramid and the ages.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And on 1298 says [Quotations]:14
1298 – “ …you potentially have the earnest, the waiting.
191 Now, when you get the Dynamics, you have been quickened from mortal to immortality. It makes the whole body come subject to the Word. It’ll make you act different, look different, live different. It’ll just make you different. […]
197 Now, potentially, you are resurrected. You’re resurrected when you receive the Holy Spirit in you. You’re resurrected right then. Your body is potentially resurrected.”
[JBP] And he writes, notice: [WSS] «John 3:1-6, 5:21-29». And he also writes: [WSS] «You are resurrected when you are born again, and your body is potentially resurrected».
[JBP] You are seeing what it is and what that word “potentially” entails. And above, he writes there: [WSS] «Potentially», as well.
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «The mechanism = ».
«The dynamic = the baptism of the Holy Spirit».
«Spiritual resurrection and potentially the physical».
[JBP] Look at all that he wrote there.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] On page 27 of the same book of “IT IS THE RISING OF THE SUN,”… (you can read page 26, page 27 to… and I will read only the little part at the bottom, where it says) [Page 23]:
 And, when He said ([JBP] that is, Jesus), ‘Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,’ He knowed how they was going to baptize. They knowed Who He was. ‘My sheep hear My Voice.’ See? See?”
He said, “Oh, I see.” ([JBP] with the conversation he had with the person who was talking to him there).
187 But now, the next thing, will you believe? See? “He that heareth My Word ([JBP] and brother William writes): [WSS] «understands», and believeth on Him that sent Me, has everlasting Life ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «and believes».”
[JBP] In other words: [WSS] «understands and believes».
 And when this new Eternal Life dwells in you, It is the potential ([JBP] See?).
188 When you have received this Holy Spirit now, that they did at Pentecost; they were the mechanics, now the Dynamics had to come. They had believed. You know, our good Baptist friends tells us, “When we believe, we’ve got It.” But, they didn’t have It, yet they had believed.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Now, in the message “THE EASTER SEAL,”15 on page 17, also a small part there. It says:
87 When It fell upon Luther, It manifested that promise of that hour.
[JBP] I am on page 17, which is page 15 in English. And he tells… This was on April 10, ‘65, and in the one of “IT IS THE RISING OF THE SUN,” it was on the 18th; in other words, he continued in this message (“IT IS THE RISING OF THE SUN”), he continued in this line that he had talked about here, because he also tells something similar that we read now. Let’s see there. Look, he says:
87 When It fell upon Luther, It manifested that promise of that hour. When It fell upon Wesley, It manifested the promise of that hour. When It falls in this day, It manifests the promise of this hour. When It fell upon Moses, It manifested the promise of that hour. Fell upon Noah, It manifest the promise of that hour. When It fell upon Jesus, It manifest the promise of that hour. See?
88 It’s the Holy Spirit coming down, to quicken, make alive those people that’s foreordained of God to be in the Rapture. Notice. That is, if he is a true eagle, he will understand the Message of the hour if he’s a true eagle.
[JBP] And he writes here, in the English one, in this message, he writes: [WSS] «The Holy Spirit quickens the Word in each age».
And he also writes: [WSS] «If he is a true eagle: he will understand the Message of the hour».
 …if he’s a true eagle. Now, the little eagle probably, in the barnyard, was eating all right, but he—he knowed it wasn’t just exactly right. But then when he heard the Truth, then he received this Truth. Now, in John 14…
89 John 5:24, rather, Jesus said, speaking this way, “He that heareth My Words, and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath everlasting Life, and shall not come into the judgment, but is passed from death unto Life.” Just think how simple that is, “He that believeth.” Now, the correct way of saying that, “He that understandeth.”
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «He that understands», here in the Spanish book. And here in the English book he writes:
[WSS] «Believe = understand».
[JBP] And he had written here: [WBM] “He that hears my Word,” and he writes: [WSS] «understands».
In other words, it is not just hearing, but understanding. And: [WSS] «believe ([JBP] he is also placing) = understand»; because if it’s not understood, how can you believe something you don’t understand?
In other words, to believe is to understand, and to hear is also to understand.
When you believe it, with the basis on what you are hearing, God is obligated to show it to you and open your understanding, because you believe it; and when you believe it, even if you don’t understand it at the moment, but there comes a time when you understand it; because you believed it. But how will you understand something if you don’t believe it? See?
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He continues saying… Look, in the message as well, let’s see here, in “HIS UNFAILING WORDS OF PROMISE,”16 page 24, says:
219 Now, but what you’re doing now, you’re going to accept Eternal Life. Look what Jesus said, “He that heareth My Words.” Heareth means “to understand.”
[JBP] Two or three witnesses: and we have already read “IT IS THE RISING OF THE SUN,” “THE EASTER SEAL,” and now “HIS UNFAILING WORDS OF PROMISE”; and in all three places we find the same definition. “In two or three witnesses let all righteousness or every Word consist,”17 it says (you can look it up there).
 Heareth means “to understand.” See? “He that heareth My Words, and believeth on Him that sent Me, has everlasting Life; and shall not come to the judgment, but has passed from death unto Life.” You’re doing the most noble thing you ever did.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He continues saying on the subject… Let’s finish this paragraph here; he says [“THE GOOD GROUND”]:
[WSS] God builds the Age of the Cornerstone with them at this time…
[JBP] With whom? With those who understand.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Matthew 18 is the Scripture… Let’s read it to have it there as well:
16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.
[JBP] There are other places where he also talks about it more… that also refers to that18; but that one is good too.
[WSS] God builds the Age of the Cornerstone with them at this time, just as the relevant age of each stage was built with those who received the Word of each age through the messenger of each age.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the message:
THE WORK OF THE LAST DAYS
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Sunday, March 5, 2000
Santa Rosa, El Oro, Ecuador
And now, for a seed that you have sown to bear much fruit, it is required that, in addition to being a good ground, you have the necessary water; because if you do not add water or do not have humidity, that seedling comes out stunted; and the fruit is tiny and not much fruit; and the plant looks bad and the fruit also; you does not look like very good fruit, that is, you see a fruit that is not a fruit for export (just so that you have a clearer idea).
Because just as good fruit is produced and exported to other nations, the fruit of Christ in this good ground is fruit for export: He will take it to the House of our heavenly Father. It is fruit to be taken to the Presence of God ([JBP] in other words, in the rapture), to our heavenly Father’s House! So it has to be the best fruit.
And now, we all desire to produce a hundredfold [100%]; therefore, we need water. Water represents the Holy Spirit and it also represents the Word.
Therefore, we need, in addition to having received the Holy Spirit, we need to be given Water —and Water of the revealed Word—, so that we may bear much fruit.
And that the Sun is also hitting us, because through the sun come many vitamins for the plants. And through Christ, the Sun of Righteousness shining upon us come many spiritual vitamins, much divine revelation, that feeds our soul so that we may bear much fruit.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the message:
THE BRANCH THAT PRODUCES FRUIT FROM
THE ROOT OF THE TREE-BRIDE
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Saturday, August 7, 2010
For example, Reverend William Branham was transported to the future in the midst of the Church, and he saw a Great Tent Cathedral where they were carrying out activities, it was being preached and callings were being made; people were coming weeping to receive the Lord, they prayed for them also and they prayed for the sick.
And in none of the past branches did we see the fulfillment of that promise.
Although the seventh branch of the seventh gentile Church age wanted to produce it, but he was not allowed to.
And now the promise is that there will arise in the midst of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ a Great Tent Cathedral. It will be produced in that branch that will bear the fruit of the Last Day: the branch of the Age of the Cornerstone. There is no other place.
That is where Christ is going, by His Spirit, to produce all that He has promised for His Church.
All the blessings that He has promised for His Church He will bring in that branch, in that shoot that is born from the trunk, and comes directly from the trunk and is placed above the Church. Above, upon those seven ages, there was a gap there, and then comes that Age of the Cornerstone; but it comes directly from the trunk.
That is where we will see what was called by the Angel that appeared to Reverend William Branham: The Third Pull. That is where there will be a ministry that will preach even to the lost.
This Third Pull will be for the Church-Bride, to speak to them the blessings so that they will receive the faith to be transformed and raptured receiving the revelation of the Seventh Seal.
[JBP] See how the blessings will be received for the Church-Bride: by the spoken Word; because the Third Pull is the Word being spoken.
[WSS] And also that Third Pull will work for the foolish virgins, it will also work for the 144,000 Hebrews and it will also work for the lost.
Not for salvation for the lost; because the Door of mercy in Heaven will have already been closed, and there will be no more time to enter into the Mystical Body of Christ, obtaining —therefore— first the new birth; but it will then be for them to take strength to go through the great tribulation and to give their lives in the great tribulation.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the message “THE THRONE OF MERCY” … Now, look at the date that the message was preached on, and that it was after…; that is, it was on July 21. And see what he says here:
THE THRONE OF MERCY
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Sunday, July 21, 2002
San Bartolome Milpas Altas, Sacatepequez, Guatemala
What Christ is doing with that Overcomer is the same thing that the heavenly Father did with Him: God placed Christ as the Administrator of the Heavens and Earth.
And now, Christ will have a faithful and wise servant who will be with Him (with Christ), and he will be working in the Millennial Kingdom of Christ; he will have the power and authority from Christ, and Christ will work through him.
And that angel messenger will work in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ; He will work in the Millennial Kingdom of Christ and then for all eternity in the Kingdom of Christ…
[JBP] As he would say, that: [WSS] “That messenger is the one of the XX, XXI, XXII, XXIII, XXIV and all centuries”19 ; because he is eternal; it will be eternal.
[WSS] …and He will be the one that will be with Christ on His Throne, just as Jesus Christ sat with the Father on His Throne.
So we can see that it is very great the blessing that there will be – that there is from God, from Christ in the Kingdom of Christ for the Overcomer.
And those who will be with him in the final stage of the Church of Jesus Christ, which is the stage of the Age of the Cornerstone, will have a very great blessing in the Millennial Kingdom of Christ; because that will be the Cabinet of that messenger of the Lord Jesus Christ, as the Cabinet of every angel messenger is the group of his age.
[JBP] When it is said “angel messenger of Jesus Christ,” notice, it is the messenger relevant to each age of the Church. And there he says: “He sends His angel”; it is the angel messenger of each age.
[WSS] (…) Therefore, Christ will have in His Church a Cornerstone ministry, and will have a Cornerstone messenger, and will have a Cornerstone group of elect…
[JBP] Like the explosion that took place, that many little stones fell, and the people in the cars caught them (we read that a little while ago; later when we have some time we will also read that part again)20, which were stones that were cut from that mount, and they represent God’s chosen ones.
[WSS] …and he will have a group of Cornerstone chosen ones; because we are of the group of chosen ones of the Age of the Cornerstone.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Now see in the message “HEBREWS”; we are going to see something that he says on page 24 of the book of “HEBREWS SIX, PART 1,”21 says:
112 But it’s the things you see in your spirit, through the Word! The Word is God’s looking glass that reflects what He is and what you are.
[JBP] In other words, at this time we are cornerstones, because we belong to the Age of the Cornerstone; and it is the Word that shows us what each one of us is: that seed-Word that produces a hundredfold. And how do we know this? Because we see ourselves in the Mirror of the Word and discover that we are that good ground.
 Hallelujah! Oh, my! It tells you. This is the only Book in the world that tells you where you come from, who you are, and where you’re going.
[JBP] And there he writes: [WSS] «The Word = Mirror of God»; and he draws a Star of David.
 Show me any page of literature, anywhere, with all the science or anything else, every good book that’s been written, none of it can tell you that. This is God’s looking glass, that shows what He is and what you are. Then, in between there is the Blood-line, that shows what you can be if you want to make the choice. There you are.
113 “By one Spirit…”
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Our brother William continues saying here [“THE THRONE OF MERCY”]:
[WSS] Therefore, this is the stage, the age of the Church, that being alive will receive its adoption; and therefore will receive the greatest blessings of the Kingdom of Christ.
If you didn’t hear it well, listen to it again: It will be the stage, the age, which will receive the greatest blessings of the Kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ! It will be the group that will be closest to Jesus Christ!
(…) And now, God gave us an example through Reverend William Branham, when He tells us that the power of Jesus Christ will be manifested in all His fullness, and that Christ will perform great miracles, wonders and signs worldwide; and he called that stage: “The Third Pull.”
And he says that people will come seeking mercy. There will be altar calls for people seeking mercy from Christ; but, Reverend William Branham says: “By that time there will no longer be mercy in Heaven, Christ will have already left the Throne of the Father.”
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And now see on page 370 [p. 436 in Eng.] of the book of The Seals, he says (the top part):
363 And there they was. They had no place to go, no retreat. And the Bible said here, “They called for the… Cried to the rocks and the mountains, to, ‘Fall on us, and hide us from the—from the face of [WSS] «Judge» the… [who is sitting on the Throne] [WSS] «Throne of David» ([JBP] he writes) and the wrath of the Lamb [WSS] «Lion».’” They tried to repent, but the Lamb had come to claim His Own, see. And they cried to the rocks ([JBP] and there he writes): [WSS] «governors» and the mountain ([JBP] he writes): [WSS] «kingdoms». Prayed, but the prayers were too late.
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «There was no Blood on the Mercy Seat».
[JBP] And here in a small part he also writes… He writes: [WSS] «the Throne of David», as well. And also to the side there he had written: [WSS] «with Elijah and Moses: claim». But what we are reading now.
And there he also writes in that part: [WSS] «Prayers: out of acceptable time». In other words, they were not acceptable at that time because they were outside of the time.
364 My brother, sister, the goodness and mercies of God, extended to the people. While, Israel was blinded for this, for here, just about two thousand years, to give us [WSS] «gentiles» a chance to repent. Have you turned that mercy down? Have you? Have you rejected That?
365 Who are you, anyhow? Where did you come from? And where are you going? You could not ask the doctor, you could not ask anybody in the world, and there is no book you could read, that could tell you who you are, where you come from, and what you’re going, but this Book.
[JBP] And notice here where we read in “HEBREWS,” where he says that: [WBM] “The only Book that shows and reflects, that is a mirror that is the Word, is the Bible: The Book that reflects what He is and what you are.”
366 Now, you know, without you have the Blood of the Lamb to act in your place, you see where you’re headed for. So, if—if God did that for you, the least thing we could do would be accept what He’s done. That’s all He asked us to do.
[JBP] And there he writes: [WSS] «The Blood». And he draws a small Star of David there.
367 And on the basis of this, if I go any farther, I’ll have to come right into that Plague, all that, tomorrow night’s service.
[JBP] And the next day it was the preaching of “THE SEVENTH SEAL.”
And he writes… brother William draws a Star of David and he writes: [WSS] «If I extend myself more………», (and many ellipses).
367 And on the basis of this, if I go any farther, I’ll have to come right into that Plague, all that, tomorrow night’s service. And now I can’t do it, can’t go any farther. I got it marked down here, a cross, “stop here,” see. So, then, I—I got to wait till tomorrow.
Now let us bow our heads just a moment.
368 If you haven’t, my precious friend, haven’t—haven’t accepted the love of this God that I’m talking about! If you haven’t…Listen to this close now. If you haven’t accepted His love and mercy, you’ll have to stand His judgments and wrath.
369 Now, you tonight, are…
[JBP] Now listen to this well. Notice here:
369 Now, you, tonight, are in the same place that Adam and Eve was in the garden of Eden ([JBP] remember that we are in our way back to Eden). You have a right. You’re a free moral agent. You can go [WSS] «in the soul» to the Tree of Life, or you can take the plan of the judgment.
[JBP] And there he writes: [WSS] «The Tree of Life. The Eden today».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And our brother William continues saying in the message: “THE THRONE OF MERCY”:
[WSS] It says that this Third Pull is for the world: it will see the power of God, the world, manifested in all its fullness. It will be for the foolish virgins also: there the foolish virgins will see Christ manifested in all His fullness, there will be a ministry that will show great signs and wonders. And it will also be for the Bride, the Church-Bride of the Lord Jesus Christ, why? Because it will be in the midst of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.
At that stage is that the dead in Christ will resurrect and we who are alive will be transformed; that is the stage of resurrection and transformation for the elect of God.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Now see, here he says… I don’t want to go over time, but it’s…. We are okay. He says in this same message that we are reading, of “HEBREWS 6, PART I,” on page 25, where we are reading [P. 20]:
115 How do we get to perfection? That’s what we want to know.
…Christ has perfected…
“God laid upon Him the iniquity of us all. He was wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement of our peace upon Him, with His stripes we were healed.” That’s the Body we want to get to. That’s the Body. Why? If you’re in that Body, you’ll never see judgment, you’ll never taste of death.
[JBP] He draws a Pyramid and the ages. See: “If you are in that Body,” that is, the Mystical Body of believers:
 …you’ll never taste of death. You’re free from all of death, judgment, sin, and everything else, when you’re in that Body.
[JBP] And there he writes: [WSS] «I will see the Blood and I will pass». And he draws a Star of David.
116 “How do you get into It, preacher? By joining this tabernacle?” You’re lost, yet. Couldn’t join, anyhow; we don’t have any book. “How do we get into It? By joining some church?” No, sir. “How do you get into It?” You’re born in It.
117 First Corinthians 12.
For by one Spirit we are all baptized into one body,…
[JBP] And there he draws another Pyramid and the ages.
118 By the Holy Spirit baptism, we are baptized into that Body ([JBP] he draws another Pyramid and the ages), and are free from sin. God don’t see you no more; He only sees Christ. And when you’re in that Body, God can’t judge that Body. He’s already judged It. He took our judgments and invited us in. And by faith, through grace, we walk and accept our pardoning. And the Holy Spirit brings us into this fellowship with Him. “And we walk no more after the things of the world, but we walk in the Spirit.”
Quickened, the Word came to us. He died in my stead. I’m made alive. Here I am, who was once dead in sin and trespasses, been made alive. All my desires is to serve Him. All my love is to Him. All my walks want to be in His Name, that wherever I go, whatever I do, I glorify Him. If I’m hunting, if I’m fishing, if I’m playing ball, if—if I’m…whatever I’m doing, I must be, “Christ in me, ([JBP] there he draws a Star of David)” in such a life, that will make men long to be that way; not tattling, backbiting, and fussing about your churches. You get it? [Congregation says, “Amen.”—Ed.]
“By one Spirit we are baptized into that Body.” “And when I see the Blood, I’ll pass over you.”
[JBP] And there he draws another Star of David.
119 Listen. Let’s read just a little further here, please.
…what could never make the comer unto perfect.
“For…” 2nd verse, the 10th chapter.
“For then they would not have ceased to be offered?”
([JBP] He read a quote there). Brother Branham says:
120 If that could make the person perfect… And God requires perfection.
[JBP] And there he draws a Pyramid. And writes: [WSS] «50» above in the Pyramid.
And to the side he writes: [WSS] «8». And below he draws the ages.
And also writes: [WSS] «1 – 49»; from 1 to 49, in the part there of the ages, below.
 If keeping the laws, if doing all the commandments, would make you perfect, then there’s no—there’s no need of having anything else; you’re already made perfect. Cause, when you’re perfect, you’re Eternal. Cause, God is the only One is Eternal, and God is the only One perfect. And the only way you can be Eternal, is become part of God.
[JBP] And he draws a Star of David and he writes: [WSS] «He who is perfect is eternal».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He goes on to say here, in the message we are reading [“THE THRONE OF MERCY”]:
[WSS] And in that full manifestation of God in the Third Pull, in which Reverend William Branham says that there will no longer be mercy in Heaven: On the Throne of God there will no longer be mercy because the Blood of Christ will no longer be there, and Christ will no longer be interceding as High Priest.
Now, and how is it that people will receive mercy? It is that Christ will be manifested in all His fullness in His human Throne; and from there He will extend mercy, and from there He will work in mercy in favor of many people; and from there it will be that Christ will extend His mercy to the Hebrew people as well.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Now, look in the message “THE UNVEILING OF GOD,”22 on page 19, at the bottom (19 and 20):
99 Notice, He said to them, “Except this corn of wheat falls into the ground, it abides alone.”
100 They, they couldn’t understand how, why that they couldn’t see Him. There stood a man. They come to see God, and they seen a man. See? They couldn’t see God because God was veiled to them. Now keep that on your mind, God was veiled in a man. They could say, “No man could do these works except it be God. No man can do it, and how here stands a man and yet the works of God is manifested through Him!” See, they couldn’t understand that God was veiled.
101 He is veiled in a man, as He always was veiled ([JBP] God has always been veiled in a man, every time He is going to manifest Himself in the midst of the human race). But, He was veiled unto them, He was in His human temple ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «God veiled in the human temple» ([JBP] and he draws a Star of David). God was in a human temple. Now, be real careful, now He’s the same yesterday, today, and forever. See? God veiled, hiding Himself from the world, veiled in human being. See? Here was God! Those Greeks saying, “We would see Him.”
102 And Jesus said, “A corn of wheat has to fall and die.” You have to die to all your ideas. You have to get out of your own thoughts.
Like those disciples was, they couldn’t explain about eating His body and—and drinking His Blood, but, see, they had done died to those things. They were dead to a Principle, they were dead to Christ. No matter what it is, or how much defeat looked like He had, they still believed It anyhow ([JBP] and he draws a Star of David). See? They could see in that Man; a Man that eat, drank, fished, slept, everything else, was born here on the earth, and walked with them, talked with them, wore clothes like the rest of them, but that was God.
103 So the Greeks couldn’t see Him, because He was hid from them, in a human being. Notice His Word to them, “Except this corn of wheat falls in the ground.”
104 God veiled in the form of a man, hid Himself from their view. They could only see a man. But those Predestinated seen God. One saw a man, the other one saw God.
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «God veiled in a human being, you believe it». And he draws a Star of David there.
 See? And it was God veiled in a human being, making both of them right ([JBP] the Greeks and the predestined), but your faith in that what you don’t see. You believe it, anyhow.
[JBP] I am going to read it again, because see this part here, says:
 One saw a man ([JBP] in other words: the Greeks), the other one saw God ([JBP] in other words: the predestined).
[Continues the reading]:
 …but your faith in that what you don’t see. You believe it, anyhow. God veiled in a human being. He was in that flesh, and that flesh was His veil. The veil was rent, see, that God might be made manifest.
105 In the Old Testament, God was hid when He was on His mercy seat; on the mercy seat, by a veil ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «the Throne of mercy by a veil». In the Old Testament, God was in His temple. But the people come in and worship like this, but, remember, there was a veil (amen) that hid God. They knowed God was there. They couldn’t see Him. That Pillar of Fire never appeared anymore there. Did you notice? There’s not one time in the Scripture, from the time that Pillar of Fire went in behind that veil, that It ever showed again, till It come from Jesus Christ. God was veiled!
106 When He stood on earth, He said, “I come from God and I go to God.”
107 Then Paul, (after His death, burial, and resurrection), on his road to Damascus, there was that Pillar of Fire again. What was It? Out from behind the veil! Glory to God!
108 He was in behind the veil. Now He was behind what? Skin veil. See, “badger skins,” behind the veil. And when that veil was rent on the day of crucifixion, the veil that He was wrapped in was rent on the day of the crucifixion, the whole mercy seat came into view.
109 Now, the Jews could not understand how that God could have mercy upon a sinful, foul people like we are. But they couldn’t see this One Who was giving mercy, because He was hid. He was behind the mercy seat, on the inside, with badger skins hanging down, covering Him. Before…
110 Before, if any man walked in behind that veil, it was sudden death. Amen. Oh, we’re going to get a lesson here in a minute, see, if you can—you can receive It. To walk behind them skins… Even one of the priest’s sons tried to do it one time, and died ([JBP] those were the sons of Aaron). “Don’t go behind that veil.” The man that walked behind… Why? There was no redemption yet, in that. It was potentially. It was just potential. And anything potential is not the real thing yet…
[JBP] See how we are now still comprehending all that we have received in all this time; wherein it was potentially what we had received. In other words, look at it from all angles.
 And anything potential is not the real thing yet…
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «The potential is not yet the real». And he draws two Stars of David there.
 …see, just potentially. It was redemption… Sin was covered, not omitted…remitted, rather, not remitted. Remitted is “divorce and put away.” And so the blood of sheep and goats could not do that, so Jehovah was hid behind a veil. Now, back behind this veil where He was hid, to enter into that, a man dropped dead, to try to enter into It.
111 But since Pentecost, since the Crucifixion, when that veil was rent from the top to the bottom, for that generation… Jesus was that God, veiled. And when He died at Calvary, God sent fire and lightning, and ripped that veil from top to the bottom, that the whole mercy seat was in plain view. But they were too blind to see It. As Moses said here, though, or… Paul said, reading of Moses, “When Moses is read, yet, that veil is still on their heart.” Oh, brother, sister, that’s what the Jews did when the veil was rent and brought God into plain view, hanging on the cross. He was in plain view, but they couldn’t see It.
[JBP] Now, that is what happened with the Hebrew people, and that is what will happen with the gentiles as well.
We had already read this part23, this one that now is…; because he goes on to say:
112 Could it be possible that the Gentiles has did the same thing?
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «at the 2nd Coming the gentiles do the same thing that the Jews did at the First Coming».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] There, notice, they saw Him hanging on the Cross when that veil was torn; and they saw Him, and they rejected Him. And here, doesn’t Revelation 11 say that, after His testimony is finished, the beast will make war against them and kill them? And their dead bodies will be laid in the street. See how in the midst of the gentiles the same thing will happen.
Verse 7, of chapter 11 [Revelation]:
7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
10 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.
11 And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
[JBP] Remember that at the First Coming He was as the Lamb of God; and now they will think that He is still a Lamb. And they are going to be surprised that He is the Lion of the tribe of Judah, King of kings and Lord of lords in His Reclaiming Work. Back then the Work was of Redemption.
12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.
14 The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And remember that after the Seals come the Trumpets; and in the Trumpets, notice that in the Trumpets there are three Woes… Let’s see here. Three Woes. Notice, in the fifth is the first one (let’s check that); and in the sixth the second one; and that third Woe…
Look at something here (since we touched on something over here); there is a part where he says…, in chapter 9 of the book of Revelation, verse 11, it says:
11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.
12 One woe is past ([JBP] notice, in the fifth Trumpet); and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.
[JBP] This is already in the Seven Trumpets, which occurs after the opening of the Seventh Seal. And… “…passed,” there comes the other one. That is the one we read, the second one. We saw the first one there. That is the second Woe.
And after they come in… After the Trumpets is that the Vials come. There all that was up to chapter 19.
See all that is shown there: The Trumpets, the Vials, the Plagues (which are poured out by the Vials); all that is what would be made known in the fulfillment of the Tent Vision, and all the Teaching that is being given. Because that is what brother Branham prophesied was going to be happening at that time: the preaching of the Trumpets, the Vials, and the Plagues; and all that is what God is fulfilling in this end time.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Notice, he continues saying in the message “THE THRONE OF MERCY”:
[WSS] And we will leave it there…
[JBP] Brother William says.
[JBP] We will go a little before then to interlace it:
[WSS] Now, and how is it that people will receive mercy? It is that Christ will be manifested in all His fullness in His human Throne; and from there He will extend mercy, and from there He will work in mercy in favor of many people; and from there it will be that Christ will extend His mercy to the Hebrew people also.
And we will leave it there; we are going to stop there so as not to continue, because up to that point it is fine. We have already seen how Christ will extend His mercy to the Hebrew people from His human Throne and from His Throne as an age: the Age of the Cornerstone.
[JBP] That is, from that other Mercy Seat. That is what we were talking about this week.24 And you can join that message with the one of today; and there —with today’s— I think it has been spoken clearly.
As here, further on; see, he says:
[WSS] The Throne of Christ in His Church as an age is the Age of the Cornerstone, composed of God’s elect of this end time; and there will be the human Throne of Christ, which will be the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
[JBP] That is, look at how all that is now being fulfilled. And it is no longer potentially, it is now real.
[WSS] See, with what we have heard, nobody will have to interpret anything, because I believe that the saying we use in Puerto Rico is too accurate for this occasion. It is said over there, when one speaks so clearly, that there is no room for doubts about what was said, that everything is left open to the human mind, it is said: “A rooster can’t crow any clearer.”
Therefore, I can’t speak any clearer for the moment.
[JBP] That is, later on we would be speaking more clearly; and that “later on” is now.
And I believe that we have spoken clearly enough so that those who understand, the elect of God, the good ground, hear and understand.
How did he say it there? That is in “IT IS THE RISING OF THE SUN”:
[WMB] “He who hears,” that is, [WSS] «understands, and believes».
And we have been found worthy to escape all the judgments to come (that is, the great tribulation), and to stand before the Son of Man; because we have heard, we have understood, we have believed, what God is carrying out in this end time.
And how God has been fulfilling it in such a simple way, that we thank God for having placed us to live in this great time, so glorious, and opening our understanding; because we are that good ground that is producing a hundredfold [100×1], those who would form the Age of the Cornerstone, the Most Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Christ.
And we will have this subject: “THE MYSTERY OF THE FOUR TYPES OF GROUND.” We immediately leave with us our dear brother and friend, Dr. William Soto Santiago.
