TITLE: THE MYSTERY OF THE RAPTURE OF THE ELECT
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Friday, August 29, 1997
Candelaria, Campeche, Mexico
Scripture: John 14:1-3
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And I want to read you the Scripture, so that we can see there what brother William wrote, two little words; but perhaps before we didn’t understand that part there; but for some time now, well, through the Message God has been opening all those Scriptures and now He is confirming them to us. As it says in the Gospel according to John, chapter 14:
1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare [WSS «theophanies»] a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare [WSS «theophanies»] a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
THE SEVENTH SEAL AND THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Sunday, March 15, 1998
How can we be prepared to be raptured?
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] That is the question he asks there, on that occasion, in that excerpt that we placed there. And it tells us in the book of Quotations, page 32, paragraph 267, he says:1
267 – “ And then, when God’s people begins to gather back together, there’s unity, there’s power. See? And whenever God’s people gets together completely, I believe the resurrection will take place then. There’ll be a rapturing time when the Holy Spirit begins to gather it up. They—it’ll be in the minority, of course, but there will be a great gathering.”
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «Time of The Rapture (Rapturing Faith). The gathering is above» and he draws the Cornerstone.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in the message “THE FEAST OF THE TRUMPETS”2 tells us, on page 28… This message was preached by Reverend William Branham, forerunner of the Second Coming of the Lord, with the spirit and power of Elijah in his fourth manifestation, there in North America, forerunning the Coming of the Mighty Angel, the Coming of Revelation 22:16, which we all know is the Seventh Seal, which contains the Thunders, contains the Rapturing Faith, which our beloved brother and friend William Soto Santiago brought: The fulfillment of His Coming. It says:
“168 He said, ‘He’s already come.’ And even the disciples didn’t know it ([JBP] he is referring to John the Baptist). ‘They done to him what they listed.’
169 The Rapture will be the same way. In—in a hour… He promised to do that ([JBP] and he writes next to it: [WSS] «in one hour = 41. years / Rapture»). He didn’t promise to show Elias like that, but He promised to take the Bride like that. ‘In a hour that you think not,’ just a change, in a moment of a twinkling of an eye, be caught away. Then you’re left, then that’s the time!”
[JBP] And on page 44 of this same message, it says [page 37] [page 35 in Eng.]:
270 And at the same time… Now, as soon as this Church (the Bride) is drawed together, She is taken up; and that mystery of the Seventh Seal, or the Seventh Seal, the mystery of going. And the Jews is called by the mystery of the Seventh Trumpet, which is two prophets, Elijah and Moses, and they come back. And there is where the Pentecostals is all mixed up; they’re looking for something to happen; the Church is done gone. And that’s to the Jews.
[WSS] «The Bride ascended in the mystery of the 7th Seal / The Rapture».
[WSS] «Moses and Elijah. The mystery of the 7th Trumpet»
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Also on page 29 (we briefly touched on this one, then later we can read other quotes from this part here), but so that there is also that part that he wrote there beside it. It says (at the bottom, of 28) [page 23]:
 Said, “It’d happen just before the Coming.” Here we are right at the end now, and look like that sixth thing is moving right up ([JBP] and he writes above: [WSS] «the 6th vision = the woman president». The woman, the vision, which is the woman who stands up there in the United States, in North America, which can be a woman or it can be the church that represents woman, a woman). See? Perfectly, exactly, even the wars and how they would happen, exactly on the dot, and not one time did it miss.
172 Listen, folks, we ought to take inventory every hour. You don’t know where we’re standing. Real close!
173 Now, now he loosed, upon, under that Sixth Seal, these two hundred thousand spiritual demons, started in Rome, Germany, Hitler. And notice over in the Bible, where they received, never…They received power as kings, but wasn’t crowned. A dictator is not a crowned king; just receive power as a king ([JBP] and he writes: [WSS] «It was politically unleashed and it remains to be spiritually», those 200,000 demons).
174 Oh, the Spirit of God just moving through me now, you know, just saying something. I don’t know how to say it, nor what to say, and maybe I better not ([JBP] and there he makes a dash of this that we read on 28 a few minutes ago, and he writes: [WSS] «one hour = 41 years, 6 months, 6 ⅔ days»).
175 Notice, two thou-…hundred thousand demons turned loose upon those Jews, when they burned them, they crucified them. They put bubbles in their veins. They killed them, till they had no more gas to kill them with. And they shot them, till they had no more bullets to shoot with. And they—and they done everything they could do. They cremated their bodies, and everything; and hung on fences, children and all, innocent people. Because they were Jews, they were done that way. But God said He give each one of them a robe, undeserving as they was; but His grace to blind them so that we could see.
176 The Seventh Seal hasn’t opened yet, you know. That’s His Coming.
[JBP] And on page 30, he says [page 23]:
 Now in the ecclesiastical realm of it! I…are you…
181 I hope that God opens your eyes to this now. Cause, I realize this is just not speaking to this church here. This tape goes world-wide. And I don’t mean to hurt anybody’s feelings, but just to tell the Truth.
182 Now the ecclesiastical realm has been opened, from the natural revival of the old pagan Rome, went forth on those Jews, which has always been their enemy. The lion, with teeth and everything, it stomped down and broke out the people. Rome, always been God’s enemy! [WSS] «Rome is the enemy of God». And it was turned loose in the same spirit, by the dictators of the world, because the religious system was still holding. Now it’s been loosed.
183 What has it done? In the “cunningness,” as He said, he come in like flatteries. And what has he done? He is bringing the Protestant Ecumenical Council of the World Churches, the spirit of antichrist upon both of them, bringing them to the slaughter, just like they did the other, in the hour to call the Bride. How? Loosed in the ecclesiastical church spirit. Loosed upon what? Not upon the denominations; upon the Bride! But here you’ll get it, the Bride will not go through that time. The Bible says not. The church will, but not the Bride. Can’t you see? Ministers, can’t you see that, brethren?
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «the squeeze».
[JBP] He writes: [WSS] «in the morning».
[JBP] And he also says: [WSS] «The 200,000 demons will be unleashed upon the Bride».
[JBP] And there are several places where it speaks to us of that, of that spirit, which was politically unleashed before, but it will be unleashed spiritually; but that would be another subject. Maybe tomorrow we will talk about it, because tomorrow’s topic is about the dimensions, and it can go along that line. Today is about the rapture, which is also linked to tomorrow’s topic.
It continues saying in this message that we placed here “THE SEVENTH SEAL AND THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH.” It says [bible study]:
The first thing is that it is not of him who wills, nor of him who runs, but of God, who has mercy.3 The people who are going to be transformed and raptured, as well as those who are going to be resurrected, are already chosen by God since before the foundation of the world; that is why they are called the elect or chosen of God; they are written in Heaven, in the Lamb’s Book of Life, since before the foundation of the world, and they come to this planet Earth in the time assigned by God for them; and they live in the age that corresponds to them under the ministry that corresponds to that age, of Christ through the angel messenger of each age.
In other words, a person cannot say: “I want to be transformed and raptured,” and for God to say: “As you wish, it will be granted to you.” It is not like that.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in the message “QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS,”4 preached on August 23, 1964 at night, on page 42 it says… it is question number 71, it says:
317. Will all borned again believers go in the Rapture ([JBP] or enter the rapture)? 211 No, just the remnant, just the remnant, not all born again believers. The Bible said, “And the rest of the dead lived not for a thousand years,” (Revelation 20:5) and then they was raised and separated, the sheep from the goats. Not all borned again will go in the…according to Scripture.
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «For Rapture not all born again».
[JBP] And it also tells us on 35 and 36 [page 941]:
173 No! See, everything will be finished for the Gentile church when the Bride is taken from the earth. The Spirit of God leaves the earth: “He that’s filthy is filthy still; he that’s righteous is righteous still; he that’s holy is holy still.” In other words the sanctuary becomes smoky, where the—the Attorney stands to plead the case. Christ leaves the sanctuary; His day of mediatorial is over. The Rapture comes; He leaves from the sanctuary, goes forth and takes the Book of Redemption, and claims everything He redeemed. There’s no more mediatorial work. How many understands that? I’ve got it on one of the Seals—or one of the… Yeah, the Seals, I believe it was…
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And if we go to The Seals, there he… there are several places where he tells us… On 85 [page 103 in Eng.], of the message “The Breach,” he says:
251 But now in this sevenfold Book of Seals, of redemption, that the Lamb took, within Himself, was the only One Who could do it. And He took It from the right hand of Him that sat upon the Throne, now, to claim His redemptive, to claim His rights. To claim, for me and you, what He redeemed us from, to, see, back to everything that Adam lost in the garden of Eden. He has redeemed us back to that.
252 Now with the Lamb, with the Book in His hands, we are ready to ask His grace and mercy upon us, to open the Seven-Seal Book to us, and let us look a past the curtain of time [WSS] «to the Most Holy Place», just a little bit. Oh, my! Notice when He took the Book, the title deed, sealed, (just get that in your mind now), and broke the Seals of the mystery, to reveal them, to bring them to His, see, all of His redeemed subjects.
253 Now, when we hit this in the Seals, we’re going to go back there and see them souls under the altar, crying, “Lord, how long, how long?”
254 And here He is as a Mediator, on the altar, “Just a little longer, until there’s more has to suffer like you.”
255 But now He comes from here, at this last Seal ([JBP] and he writes: [WSS] «7th Seal»). He no more Mediator. He is King now. And what does He do? If He’s a King, He has to have subjects. And His subjects is them that He has redeemed, and they cannot come before Him until He takes the rights of redemption. And now He walks forth, from a Mediator; where death put us in the grave, He comes forth with the rights. Amen.
256 “And even those who are alive and remain till His Coming [WSS] «the Lion», shall not hinder them which are asleep. For the trumpet of God shall sound, at that last trumpet.” When the last Seal is broke, and when the seventh angel is giving his Message, “The last trumpet shall sound, and the dead in Christ shall rise. And we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them, to meet Him in the air.” He claims! He has come forth now to claim His—His possession.
[JBP] And on 86 [page 104 in Eng.] he tells us [The Seals]:
261 Could you imagine Peter, and James, and John, and them up in the upper room, saying, “Oh, we got the Holy Ghost now, but maybe we better just keep still”? Brother, through windows, doors, and everything, they went, out into the street, acting like a bunch of drunks. That’s the real Holy Ghost.
262 But, you see, that sleeping virgin ain’t receiving nothing ([JBP] and keep in mind what we read there, from “QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS.” And he writes: [WSS] «foolish»), anyhow. Uh-huh. That’s right. And remember, while they went to try to buy Oil, remember, the Scriptures doesn’t say they got It.
263 But while they were out trying to buy It, there come a sound. What happened? All those virgins that slept, rose and trimmed their lamps, “and went in to the Supper.” Is that right? [Congregation says, “Amen.”—Ed.]
264 And the rest was left for the Tribulation period, right, “Weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth.” That’s the church, not the Bride; the church.
265 The Bride went in. There is a whole difference between the church and the Bride. Yes, sir! Uh-huh. “Went in to the Wedding Supper.” Oh, notice, boy! [Brother Branham claps his hands together once—Ed.]
266 The Seals was broke (why?) in the last church age, to reveal these Truths. Why? The Lamb broke the Seals and revealed them to His Church, in order to collect His subjects for His Kingdom. His Bride, see! Oh, my! He wants to bring His subjects to Him now.
267 What is it? Out of the dust of the earth, out of the bottom of the sea, out of the pits, out of everywhere and every place, out of—out of the regions of the dark, out of paradise [WSS] «6th dimension», wherever they may be. He’ll call, and they’ll answer. Amen! Amen! [Congregation says, “Amen.”—Ed.] He’ll call, and they’ll answer.
268 He come to get His subjects. He revealed His secrets, and they saw It. “And time is no more,” at that time. “Time has run out.” It’s finished. All right.
269 He leaves the Throne, to be an Intercessor, as a slain Lamb; to be a Lion, King; to bring the world to Judgment, who has rejected His Message. He’s not a Mediator.
270 Remember the Old Testament teaching now, as we hurry. When the blood went off the mercy seat, what was it? Judgment seat.
271 And when the Lamb, slain, walked forward from Eternity, out of the Father’s Throne, and took His rights, it was a Judgment Seat. Then He become, not a Lamb, but a Lion, King, and He calls for His Queen to come stand by His side.
[WSS] «He is no longer Lamb, but Lion».
[WSS] «Lion — King»
[WSS] «The Sixth Seal = judgment».
[JBP] And he also writes there: [WSS] «Standing on the Cornerstone to judge the world».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And it goes on… this is where we paused. On page 36 it says [“QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS #2”]:
174 Now, just a minute. “Will the foolish virgin be saved?” No! Whatever happens she—happens now. After that time she’s in the state…Now, she will have to go through the Tribulation Period. And the reason of it is, is because she has rejected the Atonement in Its fullness ([JBP] did you see there?). She is a believer, a professed believer, but she will have to go through the Tribulation Period. The Bible said, “And the rest of them, the dragon spurted water out of his mouth to go and make war…” And what an hour that is.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Our brother William continues saying here, page 1, where we paused at the bottom [bible study]:
The person will have the desire to be transformed and raptured, but he will be written in the Lamb’s Book of Life since before the foundation of the world. That means that a person who is not written in the Lamb’s Book of Life since before the foundation of the world, will not be able to be transformed and raptured, and go to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb; God already has a program designed since before the foundation of the world.
(…) We have seen how to be prepared to be raptured.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the message “THE INVISIBLE UNION OF THE BRIDE OF CHRIST,”5 it says on page 35:
 …see, all those branched off from there like the leaf.
221 But, you remember, when it went down, and the grain begin to ripen, that you find, before that grain can ripen, everything in that stalk has to be dead. Hallelujah! Can’t you see where we’re standing? Life is in the grain again. What is it? Just exactly like the same grain that went in the ground, the same Jesus in the Bride form, same power, same Church, same thing, same Word. The same Word sucked up through these and come out here, and come to a head here. And all that Life that come through here, picked up its people. Now it’s forming up into a head, for the Rapture ([JBP] and he writes: [WSS] «the head for the Rapture»). Speaking on that tomorrow night, or next night, one, the Lord willing ([JBP] that is the translation that is in this version).
222 Well, you separated from your first union, by spiritual death. Now you are born again, or remarried again, to the new spiritual union; of not your natural life of the things of the world, but of Eternal Life. That germ ([JBP] and he writes: [WSS] «soul» above) that was in you at the beginning, found you.
223 Now, your old book is gone, with your old union. Now, your name in your old, in your…has been transferred. Now, you say, “Do you mean to tell me that my old book…” God put it in the Sea of His Forgetfulness. You stand perfectly before God.
224 Now, your name is now in the new Book; not the book of life, but the Lamb’s Book of Life, what the Lamb redeemed. Not the old book of your natural union, but your new, Bride. Hallelujah! Your new life is in the Lamb’s Book of Life, your marriage certificate, hallelujah, where your true Eternal germ ([JBP] he writes: [WSS] «soul»), from the beginning ([JBP] and he writes: [WSS] «Your marriage certificate»), takes hold.
[JBP] And above he writes: [WSS] «The new race, their names are written in the God’s Lamb’s Book of Life, the Book of Christ, the second Adam».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He goes on to say, page 2 [Bible study]:
(…) We have seen how to be prepared to be raptured:
• To be part of the Mystical Body of Christ (that is, to be an elect of God, a chosen of God, written in Heaven, in the Lamb’s Book of Life, since before the foundation of the world), and to be redeemed here on Earth by believing in Christ as our Savior, and washing our sins in the Blood of Christ; and thus to be born into the Mystical Body of Christ.
• Number 2: To see and receive the Coming of the Son of Man with His Angels at the Last Day, in the manifestation of the Angel of the Covenant, of the Angel of the Lord, of Jesus Christ in Holy Spirit through His Angel Messenger.
• To hear the Great Voice of Trumpet of the Gospel of the Kingdom revealing the Coming of the Son of Man with His Angels in human flesh in His Angel Messenger.
[Rev Jose B. Perez] It tells us in the book of Quotations, on page 138, paragraph 1236:6
1236 – “ ‘And then shall he send his angels, and…gather together his elect from the four winds, and shall… and the utmost parts of the earth to be…and to the utmost parts of heaven.
…utmost parts of the earth to the uttermost parts of heaven.’
262 That’s talking of the resurrection, the translation, going up. He’ll send forth His angels to gather. Did you ever think what the angels are? Huh? Messengers. He’ll gather them together, congregate them together (see?), bringing them, bind them together from the utmost parts of the earth to the utmost parts of Heaven, the Word that was, been made manifest on earth. See? Get it? The Word’s been spoken; here It’s manifested ([JBP] and he writes very small there: [WSS] «with Moses»).”
[WSS] «Gather the elect in the manifested Word».
[WSS] «Moses and Elijah = Resurrection and Rapture».
[JBP] And also on page 41, paragraph 333, it says [Quotations]:7
333 – “301 Now, when is the Gospel returning to the Jews? When the day of the Gentile is finished, the Gospel is ready, go to the Jews. Oh, I could, if I could just foretell you a little something that’s fixing to happen right here, see, right in this day. You see? It’s fixing to happen. We get it in the Church Age. And this great thing is fixing to happen, will carry over to Revelation 11 and pick up those two prophets, Elijah and the Moses returning back again for the Jews. We’re ready for it. Everything is setting in order, just ready. This Gentile Message, as the Jews brought it to the Gentiles, the Gentiles will take it right back to the Jews again. And the Rapture will come.”
[JBP] And he writes there: [WSS] «The gentile day = the Dispensation of Grace / Moses and Elijah».
[JBP] And also up here he writes: [WSS] «The gentiles (Moses and Elijah) take the Message to the Jews, and the rapture will come».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He goes on to say [Bible study]:
• And to persevere in the Mystical Body of Christ, and to work in the Work of the Lord, and to live according to the will of God: Christian lives, pleasing to our beloved Lord Jesus Christ.
• And to always persevere in the Mystical Body of Christ, to persevere in Christ by remaining in the Mystical Body of Christ, and always attending the activities to worship God, sing to Him, glorify Him and listen to His Voice, His Word, in the congregation where God has placed you, where you will have the spiritual food of which there is in abundance for all the children of God.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] On 137 also, of the book of Quotations, it tells us, paragraph 1217:8
1217 – “77 The time of the Rapture will be the awakening of the dead and the get-togethering of the living, for…with the living, for the Rapture to take place.”
[WSS] «Resurrection and reunion = Time of Rapture».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He writes there, on 96, paragraph 834 [Quotations]:9
834 – “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.”
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «Before the Rapture, the earthquakes and the resurrection».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He goes on to say [Bible study]:
(…) Every person who will be transformed and raptured will see His Coming, will understand It (to see is to understand), will receive It, will believe It, and will hear His Voice as a Great Voice of Trumpet making known to us all these things that must happen soon; and will say: “This is what I was waiting for; and now I really can understand all these things that would be happening in this end time.”
And after we are transformed, it will be the Hebrew people’s turn, for their opportunity: how to be prepared to be raptured.
THE ANOINTED ONE WITH THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Friday, February 11, 2005
Osasco, São Paulo, Brazil
Many people of this end time have received the promise that Simeon received: That they will not see death until they have seen the Lord’s Anointed One, until they have seen the Anointed One with the Spirit of the Lord.
And who are those people who have that promise and who will be seeing the Anointed One with the Spirit of the Lord at the Last Day? It is us. And then we can say: “Lord, send thy servant away in peace, from this earthly physical body to the glorified body; for mine eyes have seen the Lord’s Anointed One, the Anointed One with the Spirit of the Lord, with the Holy Spirit.”
Simeon knew that he would not die until he saw the Lord’s Anointed One; therefore, Simeon’s death would be after he saw the Lord’s Anointed One. And he did see Him, being a baby being presented to be circumcised at eight days old. After he had already seen Him, he knew that his departure from this earthly dimension would occur at a moment’s notice.
And God’s elect of the Last Day, after they have seen the Anointed One with the Spirit of the Lord, will understand that their departure from this Earth, from this earthly dimension, will be very near; their departure for the Marriage Supper of the Lamb in an eternal, immortal, incorruptible and glorified body.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the book of The Seals, on page 412 [page 487 in Eng.], it tells us (it is question number 22):
194. Would the Bride of Christ have…? Would the Bride of Christ have a ministry before the Rapture? ([JBP] And he writes above: [WSS] «prophet»)
233 Sure. That’s what’s going on right now, see, the Bride of Christ. Certainly. It is the Message of the hour, see, the Bride of Christ. Sure. She is consist of apostles, prophets, teachers, evangelists, and pastors. Is that right? [Congregation says, “Amen.”—Ed.] That’s the Bride of Christ. Sure. She’s got a ministry ([JBP] and he writes: [WSS] «prophet»; and he points a little arrow down, in the pyramid he drew, in the seventh age he writes: [WSS] «Elijah»), great ministry, the ministry of the hour [WSS] «prophet». It’ll be so humble.
234 Now remember. How many was here, at the first, when I…? Last Sunday, see, remember what I preached on? Humility. Oh, don’t forget that. I’m going to stop a minute, to warn that again ([JBP] and when he goes to already preach “The Seventh Seal” he makes again the same…, let’s say, the same warning he made when he began to preach the Seals). Remember, when God predicts anything great to happen, the people are looking so far away, by their wisdom, till they miss what happens. When God says anything is great, the world laughs at it. “That bunch of ignoramuses!” That’s right.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He continues saying [Bible study]:
None of those people who will be alive at the Last Day can be transformed without first seeing the Anointed One with the Spirit of the Lord, without first seeing the Anointed One with the Spirit of Christ of the Last Day, where Christ, the Angel of the Covenant, will be manifesting Himself in all His fullness, and will be making known to us all these things that must happen soon, in this end time.
Christ, being the Anointed One with the Holy Spirit, when He read the reading of Isaiah, chapter 61, verse 1 to 2, which said: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed me…,” and He began to list the things for which He had been anointed, which He would be carrying out.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in the book of Quotations, on page 52, paragraph 455, it says:10
455 – “ That’s the way the Church is going to have to be: so honed down—the Word honing the Church—until when Christ comes to take the Church, the ministry, the Church will pick right up on it and will raise Luther, Wesley, and Pentecost and all, and go up with it… ([JBP] and write: [WSS] «Resurrection, Rapture»).”
[Bible study reading]:
Therefore, the Anointed One has a ministerial work to carry out, where He will fulfill the promises of God for that time. So it has also been for the Anointed One with the Spirit of the Lord of every age, and so it will also be for the Anointed One with the Spirit of the Lord for the Age of the Cornerstone.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in the message “PERFECT FAITH,”11 page 31, it says:
213 This is coming into that Third Pull! I—I’m believing it. Now I want to ask you a sincere question, you that passed through the prayer line. Can you actually believe, and feel now, that there is something happened in you since you’ve had hands laid on you? Raise your hand!…?…There it is. This is what we’ve waited for. Now, this is not…This is just starting to bloom now. See? Just started with… I did this for a purpose. I did this for a purpose. I’m working out something, see, it’s taking this charge of faith and going right back to begin and come in; see, to kind of raise faith in a bracket where you’ve never noticed it that way before. Not a faith, but a Perfect Faith, build it up in here. And watch a perfect God, with a perfect heart, keep a perfect promise, by His Perfect Word, which is sharper than a two-edged sword and a Discerner of the thoughts of the heart. What? We’re coming now to the perfection, because the people has to come to this in order for the Rapture. That’s what’s holding it away right now, is waiting for that Church to come into that Perfect Raptured Faith. Looking for it. It means a lot of shaving down for me, it means a lot for you, but together we’ll make it by the grace of God.
[JBP] And he writes the question:
[WSS] «What is stopping the Rapture?».
[WSS] «Faith will come to a level / Rapturing Faith / Rise Faith How? The 3rd Pull».
THE RISING SUN
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Wednesday, December 2, 2009
Atlanta, Georgia, United States
We are all waiting for the same person! There are theological differences, but the one we are waiting for is the same person.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in the book of Quotations, on page 4, paragraph 34, it says:12
34 – “ If that great Pentecostal church would u-…throw down them little, old traditions and unite themselves together in one blessed Church of God, the Rapture would come.”
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «union and Rapture».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And also… let’s also read here, in the message “AS THE EAGLES EXCITE THEIR NEST,”13 on page 23 it says… page 22 at the bottom, it says:
 Jesus said, “As it was in the days of Noah and in the days of Lot, so will it be in the coming of the Son of God.” And if the handwriting’s on the wall, if the time of judgment is at hand, how close is the rapture of the Church? How close is it tonight? Think of it.
22 Noah went into the ark for safety. Lot came out of Sodom. One came out; the other went in. What is it the type of, when it’s conglomerated together? It’s the type of the Church coming out of the world for safety, and going into the ark of Christ to go to glory. One come out, the other went in. One come out to keep from being destroyed with the world; the other one went into the ark of safety. And Christ is the Ark of safety.
And remember. Before that the judgments of hail, fire, and darkness swept over Egypt, Israel made her way to Goshen where there was light. And Egypt was left to wander in the darkness.
Men and women, listen to me now. Before you’re left on this earth of misery, and canker here in sin, run to the Light as hard as you can go…[Blank spot on tape—Ed.], the Light, Christ Jesus, and accept His Message of mercy.
“Hurry,” said the Angel, “and escape thither, for I can’t do nothing till thou has come out,” judgments cannot come.
23 Russia’s got the missile that’ll put all of us on our knees. And so our scientists says that we are five years behind them. It’ll be five years before we can catch up to where they are now. Our little sputnik fizzled about three foot off the ground. Theirs make trip after trip around the world.
What is it speaking to us? God saying to His Church, “Come hither, for I can do nothing till thou hast come hither ([JBP] in other words, that we go in the rapture).” God waiting for His Church to break down their denominational barriers and come together for a real outpouring of the Holy Spirit to lift her to glory. “I can do nothing until thou comes hither,” waiting for us to come together.
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «The Rapture».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And also in the message “WARNING THEN JUDGMENT,”14 page 39, he says:
188 Lord Jesus, we are a people who are—are trying our best, with all that’s in us, to walk in the Light of the gospel of Your great Gospel that You died to make right. We are so thankful to see, in this evil dark days that we’re living now in this hour, that we see the signs appearing. O God, as it is the handwriting on the wall, we thank Thee, Lord, that we can see it and know that deliverance is close at hand. We preach, we cross the country, we see You work great signs, show Yourself daily, every year. There’s not a year passes but what (great) His Supernatural signs is striking the earth. And we see it, knowing that the great army of God marches on.
189 Oh, not many in number, but what a powerful group that’s got Eternal Life! Said, “They shall run through a troop and leap over a wall.” Yes, the “troop” of death will have no holders to it, She’ll run right through it. Leap over the “wall” between natural and Supernatural [WSS] «from one dimension to another», and go into the arms of God, into that great Eternity. Lord God, we thank You for this. We know the time is approaching at hand.
[WSS] «The great sign of freedom. The Year of Jubilee, the Proclamation».
[WSS] «the wall = from one dimension to another».
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «walls — denominations». [JBP] Wall means denominations.
[JBP] There are other excerpts here, but it already corresponds to tomorrow’s topic.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And also in the message “CHRIST IS REVEALED IN HIS OWN WORD,”15 there he tells us something also about the Rapture. Page 17 says:
63 And they’re going to find out, someday, that they’re not seeing a hundred and fifty million years of light-space either. They’re going right around in a circle. That’s exactly.
You’re going to find out, one of these days, that when you go to Heaven, you don’t fly off somewhere else. You’re still right here, too, just in another dimension faster than this.
Right through this room is coming color. Every color, shirt, dress, whatever you got on, is Eternal, laying right on records, going around and around the world. Every time you bat your eyes, it’s right on record. Watch, television will prove that.
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «the Rapture to the other dimension, which is here».
64 When you are born, God sets a record on ([JBP] turns the recorder on, to record there). It don’t make… Put a record on, it don’t make much noise for a little while, you know. That’s the little baby, till it comes to accountability; then the noise starts, he starts saying things and doing things he has to answer for. And then when that life ends, that record or tape is took off and laid in the—in the great big library of God. Now, how you going to get around it at the Judgment Bar? It’s played right back in front of you, every move you made, every thought that went through your mind. Can you see that? Now can you see where God…
[JBP] And on the same page 18 (below) it says:
66 Now notice, and there is not any error in the Scriptures. Jesus, the Word of God, perceives the thought that’s in the heart. “The Word of God is stronger, sharper,” Hebrews 4:12. “The Word of God is sharper, more powerful than a two-edged sword, even a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the mind.” See? Goes way down into the mind, and pulls out, and discerns. What is discern? “Make known, reveal out.” And that’s what the Word of God does.
Today we say, “The Catholic church is the Word of God; the Baptists, the Methodists, the Pentecostal, the tabernacle.” That’s wrong. The Word is the revelation; God, revealed by the Word.
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «The Word discerns in another dimension».
[JBP] Page 19:
67 No, we could have got…get any continuity amongst medics, amongst scientists, different ones.
If Einstein had only had the spiritual application, as he had the—the physical application, as he studied the laws of light, and so forth, he could have told us something. When I heard his message on that great center somewhere into the skies, that, “Ever contacted with that center, you could create earths, do anything, and the power would be unlimited.” See? He had seen that.
[JBP] And he writes above: [WSS] «Einstein = the 8th scientist in the natural».
[WSS] «The Law of Light» [JBP] he also writes next to it.
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.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And on page 32 of the book of Quotations, paragraph 263 it says:16
263 – “ But if we don’t get the Truth, when we going to get started? We’ve got to have something to take place here to straighten us out. We got to get rapturing grace here now. Truth has to come forth.”
[JBP] And he writes above: [WSS] «Rapturing Faith».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He goes on to say. Page 4 of the Bible study:
It is important not to be in arguments, in fights, with one another, but with our heart and mind set on that divine promise, and praying to God that we may be counted worthy to avoid the judgments of the great tribulation that are to come, and to stand before the Son of Man, to stand before the Lord at His Coming.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And there on page 90 it tells us something very important, in the book of Quotations. Page 90, paragraph 778, it says:17
778 – “ So if that was so secret, when He come, how much more will the Rapture be unknown! See? They won’t know it. Directly they’ll say, ‘Well, I thought we was supposed to have a Rapture. And all this judgment upon the earth?’
65 He’ll say, ‘It’s already taken place, and you didn’t know it.’ See? It’ll be so, just like a thief at the night.
66 Like a—a book I read, one time. What is that called? Romeo and Juliet, is that what it was, or something? He let, got the ladder ([JBP] and he writes: [WSS] «Moses and Elijah») up aside the house, some way. I for-… Been a long time ago. And come, got his…to get her out at nighttime.
67 Now, that’s the way that it’ll—it’ll take place, and it’ll be gone. Not, they’ll send a bunch of Angels down, with some spades, and dig up the graves. The Bible said, ‘We’ll be changed, before even you could bat your eye.’ Just a twinkle, it’ll all be over, that quick.”
[JBP] How beautiful!
And then 779 you can read it also.
[JBP] Page 110, paragraph 962, it says:18
962 – “ …sooner or later, we’re going to have to give each other up.
22 But, that won’t hurt the Rapture, now. See? No. They come first, then. Them are privileged, that’s gone on. They come first. See? See? ‘We which are alive and remain, to the Coming of the Lord, will not hinder or prevent those that are asleep. The trumpet of God shall sound; the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then when our eyes behold our loved ones, then we’ll be changed, in a moment, in a twinkling of an eye, and with them shall be caught up together.’”
[WSS] «The Resurrection: and the Transformation when we see the resurrected».
[JBP] And on 964 (there below) it says:
964 – “Brother Branham reads Matthew 27:51-53 and says: 59 There is that Elected, that Bride. Not all of the Jewish church come forth at that time. All of them made the same sacrifice ([JBP] he is speaking there when Christ was resurrected with those of the Old Testament). All of them was under the shed blood of the lamb. But there was an elected Group / …they were in paradise until that pla-…that time. When that time was made ([JBP] we can also keep this excerpt in mind tomorrow, it has to do with tomorrow’s topic), they had overcome and was resting, sleeping; see… /  Now, the rest of Israel don’t come forth until the general resurrection. And now, at the Coming of the Lord Jesus, those who are really loving His Coming, that’s living for it; when He appears in the sky [WSS] «Paradise», the Church that’s dead in Christ shall rise, and those will be changed in a moment. The rest of them will know nothing about it. Remember, ‘Appeared to those in the city.’ See? The—the—the Rapture will be like that. We’ll see each other, and we’ll see them. The rest of the world won’t see them.”
[JBP] And he writes above:
[WSS] «The world shall not see them». «The Resurrection. Only the elect from among the Jewish church were resurrected with Jesus» ([JBP] only the elect).
[JBP] He also writes next to it: [WSS] «Heaven = Paradise».
[JBP] And below he writes: [WSS] «The Resurrection — only we will see them».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] It goes on to say here the Bible study:
The Coming of the Lord is the greatest mystery of the entire Bible and of all times; it is the mystery of which Christ said that neither the angels nor any person knew when that time would be; it is the mystery for which there was silence in Heaven for about half an hour, when the Seventh Seal was opened in Revelation, chapter 8; but it will be something simple in the midst of the people of God; and we will see the Jews saying: “This is the one we have been waiting for.”
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In other words, what will be happening at that time will be something simple; and the Hebrew people will see that great manifestation of the Third Pull, where great wonders will be seen. But there the Church-Bride will already be completely ready to be transformed and raptured. It is already a time when the faith of each one of us will be at a very high level, for… in those days we can see and access (if it hasn’t already happened), we can see those who are going to be resurrected; but the world (as it says there) will not see them. Only we are going to have that blessing of being able to see into that dimension.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Look here, on page 46 of the book of Quotations. Paragraph 400 says:19
400 – “114 Now if you look in the 14th chapter, just a moment, here you see: And I looked, and lo, a Lamb stood on…mount Sinai, and with him a hundred and forty-four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their forehead. ‘Mount Sinai.’ The Lamb had come back from the Rapture. And come back, as we took the other night, as Joseph dismissed all the Gentiles when he stood by his brethren ([JBP] and he writes: [WSS] «After the rapture»).”
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He goes on to say [Bible study]:
There is going to be a great blessing for Christianity: We are going to see the greatest revival of all times.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in the book of Quotations also: page 4, paragraph 28, it says:20
28 – “73 I truly believe, before the Church can have the Rapture, it’s got to have rapturing faith. We can’t even have faith for Divine healing, let alone rapturing faith. Got to have a faith that’ll change and quicken this body, and be taken away. I believe there’s a Church on its road tonight ([JBP] We can say that now: “I believe, Lord, that there is a Church on the way tonight.” Today, present time. Today, Friday, July 1, 2022, we can say that: “There is a Church on the way”), a power of the living God, that men will speak the Word here and there, and it’ll flash like lightning. And a Church is coming out; not a psychologist, not some of this put-on, make-belief; but a real, true, genuine, anointed, Holy Ghost, called-out Church!”
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «She will speak. Rapturing Faith».
[JBP] Glory to God! And he draws the pyramid there.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And on 122, he says… paragraph 1092 he says:21
1092 – “24 And I am looking for a time of a break forth, of the Spirit of God, in these last days that we’re now living in ([JBP] the operation of the Spirit of God); for another surge of the Holy Spirit, into the Church; for a rapturing faith, just before it comes. And everything is sitting straight in order for that.”
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «Rapturing Faith and the filling of the Holy Spirit».
[JBP] But then (you can see that it is another pen), he writes there next to it (with a little arrow): [WSS] «Rapturing Faith and the [other] filling of the Holy Spirit».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And on 6-A it also tells us something there; paragraph 59 says:22
59 – “59 Why, I believe the time will soon arrive, that when healing will be, a miracle healing, will be such a common thing ([JBP] it will be a common thing among us, and that is very, very close). We’ve got to get some rapturing faith in the Church, to go away from here one of these days.”
[WSS] «Rapturing Faith in the Thunders, in the Gospel of the Kingdom».
[JBP] And above he writes: [WSS] «Rapturing Faith. Healing will be common».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] It goes on to say [Bible study]:
A great blessing is coming for the believers in Christ, to obtain the faith to be transformed and taken with Christ to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb…
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] There also, on 22, we could read that little part too; paragraph 181, it says:23
181 – “12 It was the waters of judgment that destroyed the unbeliever, and it was the same waters that packed Noah to safety. And it’s the Gospel message [WSS] «of the Kingdom» that will destroy the unbeliever, that’ll take the Church in the rapture before the judgment ever strikes.”
[JBP] And he also writes above:
[WSS] «The Gospel Message of Judgment». And above: [WSS] «The Gospel of the Kingdom».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And on page 168, paragraph 1498, it says:24
1498 – “65 But, to the Church, the Bride, the Rapture is a revelation ([JBP] and writes: [WSS] «all revelation comes to the prophet», right there, on top) to Her. It’s revealed to Her. That, the revelation, the true Bride of Christ will be waiting for that revelation of the Rapture.
66 Now, it is a revelation, for the revelation is faith. You cannot have a revelation without it being faith. Faith is a revelation, because it’s something that’s revealed to you.”
[WSS] «The Rapturing Faith».
[WSS] «The Rapture = a revelation».
[JBP] And he also writes: [WSS] «The Bride waiting for the revelation of the Rapture ([JBP] and he also writes) by a prophet: Moses and Elijah».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And he continues here, to finish here the excerpt, it says [Bible study]:
…because the born again Christians will not go through the great tribulation, they will go with Christ to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb; that is why the Coming of the Rising Sun is so important, the Sun of Righteousness, which is the Coming of Christ our Savior.
