BIBLE STUDY #238
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2022

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Thank you very much missionary Miguel Bermudez Marin; may God continue blessing you greatly, there where you are at, along with your wife Ruth (who I greet from here as well); and also the Reverend Jorge Hernandez, and all the congregation there “El Sol,” in the state of Mexico. Our brother Gerson as well: may God bless you Gerson, and continue using you greatly in this such important work that you are carrying out; and that has been of great help for our brother Miguel and for all the brethren everywhere you go, and also the work you do from there, from Mexico, which is also of great help to everyone, so everyone also pray for our brother Gerson, who also carries a very important work. And like all of us, we also desire your prayers, he also needs prayer; so everyone praying for each other.

And also to all those who are watching us via Amazonas satellite or internet in the different countries, today Friday, September 16 of this year 2022.

Today they announced in the last bulletin at 5:00 p.m., here in Puerto Rico, that the storm system, which is already catalogued as a storm, will pass in the early hours of Sunday morning, at about 2:00 a.m. on Sunday; and the government has already issued an alert for everyone to stay in their homes, since there will be a lot of rain; and the land is already saturated, so there could be landslides and swollen rivers.

So for the safety of the brothers and sisters we will be having the activity on Sunday, virtually, here in Puerto Rico. We will be transmitting, like today, that we are transmitting like this, for the safety of the brethren, so that they are not on the street on Sunday morning, since the government is issuing that everyone be… in other words, they have already talked about everyone being in their homes.

Any change, either during Saturday night, in the afternoon, in the evening, at night or Sunday morning, as we see the weather, we will let you know; but for now, those of us from Puerto Rico will be staying in our homes, watching the transmission through the networks and through the satellite and the radio as well.

Let us hope that God protects the island and that this system doesn’t bring hardship to Puerto Rico.

 

TITLE: THE MYSTERY OF THE SEVEN THUNDERS OF REVELATION, CHAPTER 10

Tacna, Peru

Scripture: Revelation 10:1-3

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] It tells us in the book of the prophet Daniel, in chapter 7, verse 15, and it says:

15 I Daniel was grieved in my spirit in the midst of my body, and the visions of my head troubled me.

16 I came near unto one of them that stood by, and asked him the truth of all this. So he told me, and made me know the interpretation of the things.

17 These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth.

18 But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever.

19 Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet;

20 And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows.

21 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;

22 Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.

23 Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.

24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.

25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

[JBP] And there he writes: [WSS] «Rev. 5:1-14, 10:1-11».

26 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.

27 And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.

28 Hitherto is the end of the matter. As for me Daniel, my cogitations much troubled me, and my countenance changed in me: but I kept the matter in my heart.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] It tells us… He uses the Scripture of Revelation, chapter 1, verse 1 to 3, our brother and friend William Soto Santiago, in this topic “THE MYSTERY OF THE SEVEN THUNDERS OF REVELATION, CHAPTER 10.”

 

THE VOICE THAT WILL SHAKE THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH AT THE LAST DAY
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Wednesday, May 4, 2005
(Third activity)
Talcahuano, Biobio, Chile

And now let’s see other Scriptures that speak to us of these things.

In Revelation, chapter 10…

Remember that John the apostle, in the apocalyptic revelation represents the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ and the messengers that Christ would send to His Church; there the apostles are represented, Saint Peter, Saint Paul and the other messengers that Christ would send to His Church are represented.

Therefore, when John hears the Voice of God, through whom does he hear it? Through the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is through the Angel that the revelation of Jesus Christ comes. That is why John wanted to worship the Angel; and the Angel told him not to do so; John says that he wanted to worship the Angel that had showed him all these things.

And now, let’s see something else here.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] There is a writing of the dispensations, how he writes that in each angel of the different dispensations, it is the Angel in each messenger.

And he writes:

[WSS] «The 7 dispensations and the covenants and the compound names of God».

«1st [disp.] The Innocence with Adam / [the Angel in] Adam».

«2nd [disp.] The Conscience with Seth / [the Angel in] Seth».

«3rd [disp.] Human Government with Noah / [the Angel in] Noah».

«4th [disp.] The Promise with Abraham / [the Angel in] Abraham».

«5th [disp.] The Law with Moses / [the Angel in] Moses».

«6th [disp.] The Grace with Jesus / [the Angel of the Covenant] Jesus» incarnated in Jesus.

«7th The Dispensation of the Kingdom with ??».

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And there we will continue seeing now.

Look, in the message “CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY OF GOD REVEALED,”1 it tells us on page 28 (this was preached by the Reverend William Branham):

204 Because, the Bible is written in mysteries. Jesus thanked the Father for it, see, that It was wrote in mysteries.

205 Now, the Coming of the Lord is in mystery. We don’t know when He’s coming, how He’s coming, but we know He is coming. See? And so was all the mysteries of God waiting for this last day. After it’s already been completed, then He reveals and shows what He’s done. Oh, my! Never gave His mystery in full.

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «Each age was revealed in His Angel of each age» (as we read that writing there.

[WSS] «William Marrion Branham in the West, in Tucson, is type and figure of the 5th Elijah in America [the Angel of Jesus] waiting for the Church to be completed and Christ come out of the Throne of Intercession and gives her the Title Deed or the Book of the Seven Seals».

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «Rev. 10:1-11, 11:1-14».

206 It’s just like this, comparing the Seven Seals. Now, when God used Martin Luther for the coming out for that first church or that church age, and when He used John Wesley, and He gradually brought them out, and was revealing in them that church age. When we…when it goes back through the Bible now and find out. But in the last days, the reason that was such a tremendous thing, that He spoke of it here and showed those Seven Thunders. And Look and Life ma-…

207 Life magazine then packed that Circle of a Cloud and Light there that they could not understand, and don’t know it yet. But here telling, “Go there and wait for these mysteries to be revealed,” and here months before it happened, and then it happened at exactly the way He said it would do. Did you notice in that picture? Even that Angel on the right, when he was being materialized, coming down, with his wings back and his head setting sideways, there it is right there in the picture, just exactly. Months before it happened, told here, that, “He’s going to bring the Body of believers together; to reveal, take up them lost ends.”

[JBP] And he writes:

[WSS] «the 7th Angel in the cloud of angels».

208 Here come Luther through, he only preached justification, just pounded away in that age. He didn’t know what the age was. Here come Wesley through, and he pounded his age through. See? A lot of outfalls come from it, the other churches raising up. Then here come Pentecost, pounding away, and they organized and went right back into death again; as we’ll get to it in a few minutes, right back into “death.”

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «organizations is death».

209 And then comes the revelation of the mystery, to reveal what it’s all been about. Where, these little doctrines, like Luther brought out catechism and everything else; and Wesley brought this, that, and the other, and these other things; and then Pentecost brought organization just the same, and “Father, Son, Holy Ghost” baptism, and things; not knowing any different, ’cause… Then come back in the last days and pick up all these mysteries and clearly explain it, reveal it. Why? It’s all the last days when this great mystery that God had in His heart is being revealed.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Our brother William continues saying here in this message [Bible study]: 

In Revelation, chapter 10, we find that Christ, after He takes the Book of the Seven Seals, which is at the right hand of God, in Revelation, chapter 5; then in Revelation, chapter 6, He opens six Seals; and in Revelation, chapter 8, He opens the Seventh Seal. And then in Revelation, chapter 10, He comes with the little Book open in His hand.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in the book of Quotations, there on page 85, paragraph 724, it says:2

724 – “[45] See, this angel was an earthly angel, messenger; but here comes One down from Heaven, a rainbow covenant, see, only Christ it could be.

46 Just exactly like was in Revelation, 1st chapter, ‘Standing in the midst of the Seven Golden Candlesticks, with a rainbow, to look upon as jasper and sardius stone.’” ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «Rev. 10:1-6».

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Which is: That Angel is that Mighty Angel that in Revelation, chapter 10, comes descending from Heaven.

It goes on to say [Bible study]:

This Mighty Angel that descends in Revelation, chapter 10, is Christ; and He comes with the little Book open in His hand, He comes with the Book of the Seven Seals open.

The Book of the Seven Seals is the Lamb’s Book of Life, it is the Title Deed of the Heavens and the Earth, it is the Title Deed of eternal life.

And now, Adam had this Title Deed; and now, since Adam sinned: It returned to the right hand of God. And Christ, the second Adam, takes it in Revelation, chapter 5. This hasn’t happened yet.

([JBP] That is, it hasn’t happened yet in that moment he was preaching this message, that is why…; then further on you will see that he himself explains it in this message).

Christ can’t rise from the Throne of the Father (where He is making intercession as High Priest with His own Blood, for each person who receives Him as their Savior) until the very last sheep enters, the last chosen one, to the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.

And then, when that Church is complete: Then Christ has finished His Work of Intercession as High Priest, He will rise from the Throne of the Father, will take the Title Deed, the Book of the Seven Seals, will open it in Heaven and will make His Reclaiming Work.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And let’s see who is the one who makes this Reclaiming Work, where he writes there in the message “IT IS THE RISING OF THE SUN,” on page 20. Look at what he tells us there. Page 20 of the message “IT IS THE RISING OF THE SUN,”3 preached by Reverend William Branham.

125 Now, the predestinated Ones are the first to be quickened by the Holy Spirit, for the Holy Spirit comes to claim Its Own. Now, this is deep now, and be sure to catch this good.

[JBP] He writes at the top: [WSS] «The claim is done by (Holy Spirit, that is) the H.S.» (abbreviated).

[JBP] And on the back of this same message, referring to that page, he writes: [WSS] «The reclamation – (the Spirit incarnated)».

[JBP] Who does the claim? The Holy Spirit incarnate; is the one who does the reclamation, or the claim, the Reclaiming Work.

And there is another place here that he writes, referring to that page as well; it says: [WSS] «The Holy Spirit comes to claim His own, and they are vivified by the Holy Spirit».

[JBP] How are the elect vivified? Through the Holy Spirit, which is the revealed Word that He is bringing, through which He does that Reclaiming Work.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] It goes on to say [Bible study]:

(…) It is the first occasion —prophesied here— that the Title Deed, the Book of the Seven Seals, will be delivered to a man who will eat it.

Adam had it, and didn’t eat it. Jesus Christ receives it, and doesn’t eat it; but He gives it to a man.

The most important Book in the Heavens!, of which no person was worthy to take that Book and open it, not even look at it, and now Christ takes it —who was the only one worthy to take it— and gives it to a man.

What is Christ doing? He is giving him the Title Deed of the Heavens and the Earth, the Title of eternal life.

Therefore, that Title… Without that Title there will be no resurrection nor will there be transformation for the elect. It is necessary for Christ to take the Title Deed in Heaven, bring it to Earth and give it to a man; and that man receives the order to prophesy over many peoples, nations, tongues and kings.

And then, in Revelation 11, there is already the prophetic ministry. It says in chapter 11, verse 3 and on:

“And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth (those are the ministries that will have the Title Deed, the Book of the Seven Seals).

([JBP] Who are the ones who will have the Title Deed? The ministries of Moses and Elijah).

These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.

And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth…”

In movies they show, when they show movies like that of the Two Olive Trees or the Two Witnesses, they show them casting fire out of their mouths; but what that represents is: Speaking the Word. That Sword that comes out of the mouth of the white horse Rider of Revelation 19, and the Son of Man of Revelation, chapter 1, is the Word.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the book of The Seals, on page 362 [p. 428 in Eng.] (at the bottom) it says:

[296] Now notice. Don’t let it choke you ([JBP] that is, it may scandalize a person). But, watch what opened that Seal, prophets! See? Whew! Amen! There you are.

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

298 They opened that Sixth Seal. They have power to do it.

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «Prophets open the 6th Seal».

[JBP] In one of the book of The Seals… I have 3 here, and in one he wrote: [WSS] «Prophets open the 6th Seal»; and in this one that I’m reading, he marks a lot where it says: [WMB] “They have power to do it.”

[298] Amen! There is your Sixth Seal coming open.

[JBP] And in this one… Let’s see… Let’s keep reading here:

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

300 And here the Sixth Seal opened, and they say, “Well, that’s a mysterious thing. What did it?”

301 Here is the secret of it, the prophets ([JBP] that is, Moses and Elijah), ’cause the Bible said so here. They can open it, any time they…They can do anything to nature they want to. And they do the same thing they did do, amen, ’cause they know how it’s done. Amen! Glory!

[JBP] And here he, in this one writes: [WSS] «whenever they want», that is, whenever they want to open the Sixth Seal; and he writes: [WSS] «Moses and Elijah».

And at any moment…, that is, it can be that with a system like this one that is coming, which is imminent, they can always work —of course, by divine direction— to stop it; as it happened in one of the manifestations, of the five manifestations that God showed to Reverend William Branham, and one of them was the storm; which he spoke by the spoken Word, and the storm dissolved, and you don’t know where it went.

So that ministry can also begin —according to divine guidance— to operate; whether it’s stopping a storm, or speaking for it to come; whether it’s an earthquake, whether it’s…; whatever it is; because it’s the control of nature that those ministries will get when… it says on page 362: [WMB] “They discover it and open it.”

In other words, all this would be taking place under that ministry that would be at the end of time working in the midst of the Church, in the fulfillment of the Tent Vision.

[The Seals]:

302 When I seen that, I just raised out of the chair and…

[JBP] Imagine, something as glorious as having power over nature (the same as Adam had). And when he saw that: The Title Deed coming back to Earth, and that a human being can have control over nature, he…, there he surely thought of transformation. Because remember that the Rapturing Faith is in the Thunders; and he knew, he knew that mystery by which he couldn’t speak openly, because it was not in the Laodicean Age that that Rapturing Faith was going to be spoken, because it wasn’t (that promise) for the elect of that age. And he had to keep quiet.

But seeing that…, that is why he said: [WMB] “I could almost reach out and touch it,”4 the fulfillment of the Tent Vision. Because all of that entails (all that which is the Tent Vision and its fulfillment), involves the ministries of Moses and Elijah, involves the Rapturing Faith and involves all of that, the resurrection. That is why he says: [WMB] “See how the resurrection moves there.”5

In other words, all this would be taking place under that ministry that would be at the end of time working in the midst of the Church, in the fulfillment of the Tent Vision.

[The Seals] [P. 428]:

[302] …started walking up and down the floor. I thought, “Lord, how I thank You, Heavenly Father!”

303 There it is. That’s it. They opened that Sixth Seal. Amen! Watch them, “If any man hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth,” the Word. Holy Ghost come upon the apostles [WSS] «the Day of Pentecost», you see. “Fire proceeded out of their mouth [WSS] «the Year of Pentecost».”

304 Now notice over in Revelation 19, we see the same thing ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «Moses and Elijah» ([JBP] What is Revelation 19? Moses and Elijah), “And a great sword proceed from His mouth,” Word. See? Christ’s Coming. “And He slayed His enemies with It.” Is that right? [Congregation says, “Amen.”—Ed.] Now He’s on His road. Watch Him now. All right.

“These have power to shut the heavens, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy:”

305 Boy, that’s interrupting nature!

[JBP] And that there is an intertwining that there will be before the great tribulation begins; because all stages are intertwined, and that power will be seen. And that is why in the fulfillment of the Third Pull, which is for the Bride, for the foolish, for the unbelievers and for the Hebrew people, will be impacted by that ministry; which fully, in that ministry of three and a half years, will be seen fully manifested; but before there will be a great manifestation of that power of God.

305 Boy, that’s interrupting nature! Now, how long did—did this man, Elijah, close the heavens for? [Congregation says, “Three and one-half years.”—Ed.] There you are, exactly. How long is Daniel’s seventieth, last part of the seventy weeks? [“Three and one-half years.”] There you are, exactly.

306 What did Moses do? He—he—he turned the—the waters into blood. He done all these kind of miracles, just exactly what’s predicted here under this Sixth Seal. And here they are, in Revelation 11, doing the very same thing. Amen!

307 There is three different places in the Scriptures, right there, blending the thing right together. That’s the opening of the Sixth Seal. Right there it is. Amen! Glory! […]

308 Oh, my! There you are. Now turn right over here to the plagues, see. All nature is interrupted, in this Sixth Plague…or the Sixth Seal, open. That’s exactly what happened. Now look. The…

309 Here, God is about to deliver His son, Israel, after the same manner of the tribulation that He did down there. He sent Moses down there and delivered Israel. Is that right? [Congregation says, “Amen.”—Ed.] And he done these very same things. 

[JBP] Notice that this happens…

And he writes: [WSS] «Israel = Moses delivers them».

[JBP] And if he says there: [WMB] “He is about to deliver His son, Israel, after the same manner of the tribulation that He did down there.” That is, with all those signs that Moses did there, before freeing the Hebrew people from Egypt, here it would be before the great tribulation; in other words, it would be… See how there is the intertwining, because that happens just before the tribulation begins.

That is in this same book of The Seals, in this same “SIXTH SEAL.” Notice that he says that [WMB] “that happens just before the tribulation begins.” (It should be a little before). Page 359 [p. 423 in Eng.], look (I believe it is this one, which says):

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

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

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «Rev. 10:1-7 and Luke 17:30».

268 That’s just before the Tribulation period…

[JBP] See? There is an intertwining there of that manifestation of Moses and Elijah: between the beginning of the tribulation and prophesying —those ministries— before that, those ministries will already be operating in favor of the Church-Bride, in favor of the foolish; also so the lost, those who don’t have the opportunity, know; and the Hebrew people. In other words, this manifestation will impact all those groups.

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

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «Before the great tribulation».

[JBP] And he goes on to say… In this other book of The Seals… Let’s also place it here so it remains, because he says… on page 363 [p. 429 in Eng.] at the bottom, when he says:

[306] And here they are, in Revelation 11, doing the very same thing. Amen!

307 There is three different places in the Scriptures, right there, blending the thing right together.

[JBP] And in this book of The Seals he draws the Star of David in the part where he talks about [WMB] “the Holy Spirit came upon the apostles.” Then he draws another one, which that one is from Revelation 19. And the one below is from Revelation 11. In other words, there you have the three that he says there:

307 There is three different places in the Scriptures, right there, blending the thing right together.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Our brother William continues saying here (I’m on page 3) [Bible study]:

And now, they will have the creative Word to speak it; and what they speak, will happen; because they will have the Voice that will shake the Heavens and the Earth.

Now, we have seen where the Voice that will shake the Heavens and the Earth is ([JBP] Where is it? In the ministries of Moses and Elijah). It is in the prophetic mystery of the Two Olive Trees, in the prophetic ministry of the one who will eat the Title Deed, the Book of the Seven Seals; it is in the one who will have the Message of the Great Voice of Trumpet of the Last Day.

That Great Voice of Trumpet is the prophetic Message of God through Christ, through the Holy Spirit through the final messenger, the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in the book of Quotations, page 130, look at what he tells us there, paragraph 1162, it says:6

1162 – “[233] What are we waiting for? When that Trumpet (the last one)… the Lord shall sound, and time shall be no… (Done broke into Eternity, ‘In a moment, in a twinkling of an eye.’)”

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «The Great Trumpet, and time will be no more. Rev 10, 11:15-19».

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] It goes on to say [Bible study]:

In that Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit (which is the only one that has ministries) will be operating those ministries, and He will be speaking; and what will be speaking is the Voice of God. That will be the Voice of God. And that is the Voice that will shake the Heavens and the Earth.

([JBP] And if he is speaking, well, He has to have a voice; and if He has a voice, it is because He has a veil of flesh to be able to speak).

We have seen that everything is simple. Everything is simple, but everything is hidden here: in the Bible, in the book of Revelation and in other books of the Bible.

([JBP] Now, look at this).

(…) Christ is still in Heaven, on His Throne of Intercession; still the Second Coming of Christ hasn’t yet taken place; still the Coming of the Mighty Angel hasn’t yet taken place; because Christ is still on the Throne of the Father making Intercession with His Blood.

He is as High Priest until the last elect has entered His Church.

Then He will rise from the Throne of the Father, take the Title Deed, open it in Heaven, and do His Reclaiming Work. And He will give the Title Deed to a man, who will be His Angel, to eat it and prophesy over many peoples, nations and tongues. In other words, preach, prophesy, the divine judgments that are to come upon the human race, preach the plagues.

([JBP] Where is it that the Vials, the Plagues, the Trumpets and all of that are preached? Reverend William Branham there in the book of Quotations says it is in the Tent).

It is like Moses: God commanded Moses to preach the plagues. He would say, “Say that such a thing is coming.” If Moses didn’t say it, it wouldn’t come. But Moses went and said it, and things happened. Why? Because it is the creative Word of God on the lips of a man; and when that man spoke that Word: it materialized, because it is the creative Word of God.

[JBP] In other words, if it is through the lips of a man that the Word is spoken, it must be through a veil of flesh. Automatically the idea that a divine being has to come is gone to fulfill this: to speak and to prophesy and to preach; when God always does it through a human being, which is His Ambassador. We are His partners in His Program.

In other words, it is the ministry that God would be raising up, which He had hidden; but He had him, preparing him for that stage, which was a stage that He had hidden; and at the right time He would be operating that ministry, when He would have all the elements, and would have the specific time for that ministry to begin.

By obligation, it has to be in a Tent; because everything was prophesied and everything was being appointed to be in a Tent and under a Tent.

So Moses ministered: in a tent, he already knows how to do it. And also in the part of prophesying and speaking the Word, Elijah (like Moses) had the Word also; in other words, what he spoke: God vindicated him by what he spoke.

It says [Bible study]:

If Moses didn’t say it, it wouldn’t come. But Moses went and said it, and things happened. Why? Because it is the creative Word of God on the lips of a man; and when that man spoke that Word: it materialized, because it is the creative Word of God.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the message “GOD HIDING HIMSELF IN SIMPLICITY,”7 look at what he says here, it says…

This message is not the one he preached in the The Seals; this one was preached on April 12, 1963. It says:

260 And Jesus Himself said, “If your own law said ye are ‘gods,’” amateur gods with control of the earth. He said, “If they call those ‘gods,’ who the Word of God came to,” which was the prophets. The Word of the Lord comes to the prophet. “And if you call them ‘gods,’ how do you condemn Me,” He said, “when I say I’m the Son of God?”

261 Now, if the blood of bulls and goats could give a power to Moses, to go out there, by the commission of God, and stretch forth that rod, and say, “Let there come flies.” He had the Word of God, and he spoke that Word. And when he did, it become from God’s thought. A word is a thought expressed. And so then when God thought it, and put it in Moses’ mind, and he spoke it, it become a Word. And Moses turned around and went back; maybe not a fly in the country. In an hour from then, maybe one old green fly begin to buzz around. In a half hour, there was ten pounds per square yard. What was it? The creative Word of God that was spoke by the lips of a mortal man.

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «God’s thought in the mind of Moses, which he spoke, and the creative Word spoken. Deuteronomy 18:15».

[JBP] And on the side he writes: [WSS] «in the mind of Moses».

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In other words, God placed it in the mind of Moses. (And that was what we looked for recently, where he says that the revelation – how it came to him [WMB] “in the thought,”8 he said something like that)9. And that is what happened there with Moses: that thought of God was placed in Moses’ mind, and Moses spoke it.

He goes on to say [Bible study]:

Like when God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. See? It is the same thing. Now God speaking through men, through prophets. That is the way it has always been.

([JBP] And so it shall be! It will always be so! He can’t do it any other way).

Notice, the things that Jesus prophesied have been fulfilled each in due time. Why? Because that was the creative Word of God. So shall this one also prophesy that the Title Deed shall be eaten up; for the command is:

“Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.”

And then, in Revelation, chapter 11, the Two Olive Trees are prophesying.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in the book of The Seals, on page 364 [p. 430 in Eng.], it tells us there:

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

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

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

[JBP] And he writes:

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

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

[JBP] And here he writes:

[WSS] «Rev. 10:1-11, 7:1-11».

«Adopted».

[JBP] And he also writes: [WSS] «whenever they want». So they speak whenever they want to; but, remember it is by God’s direction.

That is why he says, [WMB] “They can only speak as God gives them the Word.” That is why they are going to have a tremendous stumble with that Stone not cut out of hand, because He comes as a Lion; no longer as a Lamb; because in that manifestation in mercy that the Son of Man had in our time…

Paragraph 183, page 22, of the book of Quotations:10

183 – “[24] that the Son of man is now being revealed from heaven.

‘Will it come after while, Brother Branham?’

It is now. And I hope I won’t have to make this so personal of this own meeting, but that your spirit within you that’s give you by God, can read what I’m talking about. The Son of man has already come from glory and is revealing Himself for the past few years to His Church in mercy, showing them His great Presence, doing the same things that He did when He was here on earth, revealing Himself like He did to Abraham, before the destruction. He has come now in mercy, revealing Himself to the Church. It’s being laughed at and scoffed at. The next time He reveals Hisself, it’ll be in judgment on the world and the nations that’s forgot God and sinned their way of grace—their day of grace, rather, away.”

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «Elijah and Moses».

[JBP] And he writes at the top: [WSS] «Rev. 19:11-21».

[JBP] See how all those Scriptures are the same: Revelation 10, Revelation 19, Revelation 11, it is the Coming of the Lord; for the Lord comes with His Angels.

And here he writes: [WSS] «He has come from His glory».

[WSS] «Son of Man. Grace and judgment».

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Let’s read on page 369 [p. 435-436 in Eng.] of The Seals, so it remains here. It says:

360 Notice the last verse of the Sixth Seal, opened. Those who had laughed at the preaching of the Word, of the vindicated Word [WSS] «Elijah» of the living God; when them prophets had stood there and performed miracles, closed the sun, and everything else, and all down through the age. See, “They cried for the rocks and the mountains to hide them,” see, to hide them from the Word that they had laughed at, ’cause they seen Him come. “Hide us from the wrath of the Lamb.” He is the Word. See? They had laughed at the Word. And here the Word was, incarnate. And they had made fun of It; laughed at them, made fun of them. And the incarnate Word had dropped forth! [WSS] «In the Angel of Jesus. Moses and Elijah».

361 Why didn’t they repent? They couldn’t. It was too far, then. So, they knowed that, the punishment. They hear It. They had sat in meetings like this…

[JBP] See, he is talking about people who are listening to the Word. And he is also referring to all those who have mocked and scoffed at the manifestation of the Son of Man, both in the fourth Elijah as well as in our beloved brother William Soto Santiago, as well as in the final manifestation.

[361] They had sat in meetings like this and knowed about It. And they knowed that the things of those prophets, had predicted, was looking them right in the face, the thing that they had rejected. They had spurned mercy for the last time.

[JBP] And he writes at the bottom: [WSS] «Elijah and Moses, the one who receives His Message receives mercy».

[JBP] He who doesn’t receive His Message: will not receive mercy. [WSS] “As simple as that” our brother William would say being in his physical body. Because since the messenger and the Message is the same, when one says: [JBP] “As simple as that,” (I respectfully say it), he would be saying it.

And he writes: [WSS] «mercy for one last time».

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

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «with Elijah and Moses / reclamation».

[They pass to Rev. Jose B. Perez the text that he had requested to look for, regarding the thought and how the revelation comes]:

[JBP] Let’s see if that is the one he had here…, because he wrote, I remember he [WSS] “how the revelation of the Seals come…” Yes, here, that was it. It says [The Seals] [P. 240]:

[98] God dwelt with us in flesh. He was the Word.

99 Before a Word, it’s a thought. And a thought has to be created. All right. So, God’s thoughts become creation when it was spoke, by a Word. That’s when He presents it to—to you as a thought, His thought, and it’s revealed to you. Then, it’s still a thought until you speak it. That’s the reason… 

100 Moses went out to pray. That Pillar of Fire around him, and He said, “Go, hold your stick towards the east, and say, call for ‘flies.’” 

101 There’s no flies. But he went and held the stick there, and said, “Let there be flies.” No flies at all, yet. Went on back. But the words, God’s thought, has already been spoken. It’s a word, now it’s got to happen.

[JBP] And there, look, if we enter that topic…; because he speaks of Mark, chapter 11… there he writes: [WSS] «Thought, word, matter».

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «a thought = it must be created».

[JBP] And he in the writing, which is where I read it, which he says: [WSS] “how the revelation of the Seals came to him,” because he wrote: [WSS] «to the thought».

But we already found that one… Now, I will calmly look for it (we weren’t to talk about this part). But look at what he says [The Seals]:

102 Now don’t you see where Jesus said? “If you say to this mountain; ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «the gentile kingdom» ([JBP] what we spoke of these days) not if I say it. But you say to this mountain, ‘Be moved.’ ([JBP] And he continues there talking)

[JBP] And notice, and he writes: [WSS] «mountain = kingdom».

[JBP] And he also writes: [WSS] «Los Angeles and Hollywood».

In other words, all that, that earthquake that is going to come to California, will be produced by the spoken Word. And it will be spoken so that earthquake will be a reality in all that territory of California, and Los Angeles, California, will sink; and all that is going to happen; because it is the creative Word, the spoken Word (being spoken) and things happening. It may be, as he says that: [WMB] “it is spoken,” and as it says there that [WMB] “Moses turned and there was not a fly yet,” but it was already the Word spoken through a prophet; and it has to be fulfilled.

Just like the kingdom of the gentiles, which he says there that that kingdom of the gentiles will be taken away by the spoken Word as well.

It goes on to say where we left off over here [Bible study]:

What is it? It is the ministry of the Two Olive Trees, in which the Book is eaten, which is represented in John the apostle: By eating that Book, there it is representing the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ ([JBP] See?), who in the Last Day will receive the Title Deed, the Book, and will eat it; and will prophesy the divine judgments that are to come upon the Earth, he will prophesy them upon many peoples, nations and tongues.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And on page 82 of the book of Quotations, paragraph 698, it says:11

698 – “[366] …this Angel brings the next announcement. And an angel means a ‘messenger.’ And He comes down from Heaven, clothed in that Pillar of Light, Cloud, with a rainbow over His head. And a rainbow is a covenant. It was Christ, “With one foot on land, and one on the sea, and swore, that, ‘Time will be no more.’”

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «The next Message. Rev. 10:1-11 / The Angel = Christ, the Pillar of Fire».

[JBP] There, we could talk so much about that: The Pillar of Fire; because… where did brother Branham see it? In a Great Tent Cathedral. And there he draws a Star of David.

Look at the previous paragraph, 697, what he writes here, it says [Quotations]:12

697 – “319 And Seven Thunders, right in the revelation here of Jesus Christ, It’s some mystery. Does not the Bible say that This is ‘The revelation of Jesus Christ’? [Congregation says, “Amen.”—Ed.] Why, there is some hidden mystery, then, of It. Hum! What is It? The Seven Thunders have It.”

[JBP] And he makes a drawing of the Star of David, and above he writes: [WSS] «the 2nd Coming in flesh».

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] It goes on to say [Bible study]:

Therefore, we are close to that – to that time, of prophesying over many peoples and tongues, happening. ([JBP] That blank space that he left there: [WSS] “Therefore, we are close to that -…,” let’s say, there he left a space is ellipses). But still mercy is extended in Heaven. There is still mercy in Heaven, we are still in the Dispensation of Grace…

[JBP] See, and didn’t he say that we were in the Dispensation of the Kingdom already? God has hidden this time so, so much, that if we don’t watch, many will miss the simplicity of how God is fulfilling everything in this time; everything that the prophets spoke, everything that brother Branham spoke, everything that mighty Archangel spoke (that Angel who was different from the others, who began His ministry there in 1963, and who brought us all this powerful Message); everything that they spoke and left it in secret.

But there it was all hidden, of what God would be doing and fulfilling in the midst of the Church-Bride at this time. And He kept it that way, so that now there wouldn’t be in the midst of mankind a bunch of impostors (it is so; and there are some that have arisen), but that there is only One true one.

And there can be no imitation of that final manifestation: of the manifestation of the Mighty Angel of Revelation, chapter 10, and of that manifestation of those ministries of Moses and Elijah of Revelation 11.

One: they will not have the ministries; and another: they will not have the Pillar of Fire, the Holy Spirit, which is the one that does the Reclaiming Work.

[Bible study reading continues]:

…we are still in the Dispensation of Grace still the Door of Mercy is open.

But in Luke, chapter 13, verses 25 to 27, it says that the Door will be closed. When it is closed: then no person will enter the House of God, the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ…

[JBP] And that was seen around there, around the year 2018 (at the end), when he ordered to suspend the baptisms. Already that part… we don’t know if already beforehand, that was already being intertwined; but we know that the Door to enter and to have those requirements to be born again, by cutting out those requirements (which one of the things was baptism and Holy Supper also; all that has to do with it)… By eliminating all that (not eliminating it, but ceasing to do it, because that already belonged to a past dispensation), the Door to enter the Dispensation of Grace was automatically closed.

The Door is always the veil of flesh. The Door is always the veil of flesh. To enter the Most Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Christ, the Door is also a veil of flesh.

Because to be born again and to obtain that theophanic body of the sixth dimension, it was required to believe in the First Coming of Christ as the Lamb of God, who is the Door: “I am the Door” said Christ. And to obtain the eternal and glorified body, it is required to believe in the Second Coming of Christ as the Lion of the tribe of Judah, to be able to look and enter behind the veil.

Whoever can’t enter through that veil, can’t enter the place where the divine promises are, where the promised land is, where everything that the elect of God at this time will receive is; therefore, the Marriage Supper of the Lamb (we will receive there also the rewards); and then enter… after the three and a half years, return to Earth and be in that glorious Millennial Kingdom.

[Bible study reading continues]:

When it is closed: then no person will enter the House of God, the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ will have been completed, and we will be ready to go with Christ to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] May God help us at this time, to look and see the fulfillment of this great mystery, of: “THE MYSTERY OF THE SEVEN THUNDERS OF REVELATION, CHAPTER 10.”

There is a place here (let’s read it then, since I had it bookmarked). On page 113 of the book of Quotations, paragraph 989, it says:13

989 – “[100] Oh, Church, rise and shake yourself! Pinch your conscience, wake yourself up, in this hour! We must be desperate, or perish! There is coming forth something from the Lord! I know it as THUS SAITH THE LORD. There is coming forth something, and we better get desperate. It’s between Life and death. It’ll pass through us and we won’t see it.”

[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «Something is coming. What is it?».

[JBP] And on the side he writes: [WSS] «It is the 7th Seal the Coming of the Lord».

[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And we thank God for having sent us at this time His Angel Messenger: William Soto Santiago.
