The culmination of the Work of the Great Architect
The culmination of the Work of the Great Architect
Good morning to all those present and also those who are connected through the Amazonas satellite or internet in the different countries.
There in Valencia, Venezuela, our friend and brother, missionary Miguel Bermudez Marin, in the congregation pastored by Reverend Miguel Chavez, to his wife Ruth Bermudez and everybody there. And also to those who are present here, those here in Puerto Rico, and also those who are visiting us during these days in Puerto Rico.
May you have a happy and prosperous year 2023, which we are hours away from ending this year 2022 and entering 2023, according to the Gregorian calendar.
And we thank God for everything He has given us in this year 2022, which has been a year of great blessing and great revelation for all His Church. And we hope that this next year 2023 He fulfills everything He has in His Program.
And we thank all those who have also been working in favor of the Work of God in all aspects, especially in favor of The Great Tent Cathedral here:
To all the brethren in the administrative offices here in Cayey, Puerto Rico, of The Great Tent Cathedral; all those who work in administration, all those who work in the printing press, those who work in the audio, in the videos, in master control, in the cameras; those who work in the construction; those who also do the cleaning, those who also maintain the green areas; those who pray, those who also contribute (which are all of us). To all:
May God bless you and reward you for all that you have done during this year 2022.
And all of you from all Latin America who have also been hand in hand with the project here of The Great Tent Cathedral: May God reward you in a great way for all that you have done and all that you will continue to do in favor of the Work of God.
We read in First Corinthians, in chapter 3, verse 5; the Holy Spirit tells us by the mouth of the apostle Paul:
5 Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man?
6 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.
7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.
8 Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.
9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.
10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in Hebrews, chapter 11, verse 8, it says:
8 By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.
9 By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:
10 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
THE CULMINATION OF THE WORK OF THE GREAT ARCHITECT
[JBP] That is the topic we have for this Bible study.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Our brother William Soto Santiago says:
THE PROPHETIC WORD IS THE LIGHT OF THE LAST DAY
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Saturday, March 3, 2007
Mexico City, Mexico
For our time it will be as it was also in the time of Joshua, in the time of the judges, in the time of the prophets, in the time of John the Baptist…
Look at one very important thing that we must not overlook: John the Baptist didn’t join Jesus’ group, although he recognized Him as the one to whom he was preparing the way, although later when he was in jail, he got confused and asked.
For John the Baptist as all the Jews of that time expected the Messiah to redeem Israel, to restore it to the Kingdom of David, or to restore the Kingdom of David and therefore, establish that messianic reign.
John the Baptist’s group stood apart, but John said (speaking of Jesus): “It is expedient for Him to increase and for me to decrease”; and therefore, it was expedient for John and his group to decrease, and for Jesus and His group: to increase.
And so it has been and so the Reverend William Branham said it will be.
Reverend William Branham speaking about him as a forerunner. (Let’s see which page… If you can find a book of The Seals we can find it). [Page] 474 says, 475 [p. 565 in Eng.]:
“ I don’t know who is going to (so it will be a person)… what’s going to take place. I do not know. I just know that those Seven Thunders holds that mystery. The Heavens was quiet.”
And “for whose reason there was silence in Heaven” was because of the Seventh Seal. The Seventh Seal was what caused silence in Heaven. The opening of the Seventh Seal, the mystery of the Second Coming of Christ, is what caused silence in Heaven.
But it says that the Seven Thunders contain that mystery; and the Seven Thunders is the Voice of Christ, the Voice of the Mighty Angel that descends from Heaven, the Voice of the Holy Spirit coming with the little Book open in His hand, and speaking, and delivering it to a man.
In other words, the Holy Spirit, the Angel of the Covenant, speaking, is the one who will reveal to the Church-Bride the mystery of the Seventh Seal.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the prayer he made in the year 2016 to 2017, that new year’s eve, there is a small part here which he says:
WORDS OF FAREWELL FOR THE YEAR 2016
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Saturday, December 31, 2016
Cayey, Puerto Rico
END OF YEAR PRAYER
Lord, bring soon at Your Coming the Title Deed, the Book sealed with Seven Seals; and manifest Yourself in all Your fullness as the Lion of the tribe of Judah, as King of kings and Lord of lords, in this end time.
[JBP] And notice how there he speaks to us (in this message that we are reading) that that Mighty Angel with the little Book is the one which contains and is the one who brings the mystery of the Second Coming of the Lord…; and it will be made known to the Church.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He says [“THE PROPHETIC WORD IS THE LIGHT OF THE LAST DAY”]:
[WSS] …the Voice of the Mighty Angel that descends from Heaven, the Voice of the Holy Spirit coming with the little Book open in His hand and speaking and delivering it to a man.
In other words, the Holy Spirit, the Angel of the Covenant, speaking, is the one who will reveal to the Church-Bride the mystery of the Seventh Seal.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the book of The Seals it tells us… If He is going to make known that mystery and He will be speaking it, He must — therefore — have a veil of flesh to make it known. Page 470 [p. 560 in Eng.] at the bottom says:
 Oh, what a day we’re living in! What a great thing! See the mystery and secret? The Third…
289 Standing there when this left me, Something just come to me and said, “Don’t fear.” Now, I didn’t hear no voice. Like on the inside of me, spoke ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «inside of me». I have to just tell you the truth, just exactly what happened. Something hit, and said, “Don’t fear. This is that Third Pull.”
290 Third Pull! You remember It? [Congregation says, “Amen.”—Ed.] He said, “You’ve had so many impersonators on this, what you tried to explain. But,” said, “don’t even try, This.”
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «3rd Pull».
And at the top he writes: [WSS] «Imitation».
 You remember it? How many remembers that vision? [“Amen.”] Why, it’s all over. It’s taped, and everywhere. That’s been about six years ago, seven years ago. Been seven years ago. Said, “Don’t try to explain That.” Said, “This is the Third Pull, but I’ll meet you in there.” That right?
[JBP] And there he begins to tell that vision that we all already know.
And he writes: [WSS] «The 3rd Pull».
«The creative Word spoken creating».
«The creative Word spoken revealing the Seven Seals». There is the second one.
«The creative Word spoken by the Two Olive Trees in the Tent». The third one.
[JBP] See how there he identifies those three parts of that Third Pull. And the Third Pull in that last phase is the one that will give the Church the Rapturing Faith (through whom?) through the Two Olive Trees in the Tent.
He in that Scripture revealed all of that to us in such a simple way. It is as simple as that.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He goes on to say [“THE PROPHETIC WORD IS THE LIGHT OF THE LAST DAY”]:
[WSS] And (let’s see) there is the rapturing faith. In clearer words: those who are going to be transformed and raptured along with the dead in Christ who will be resurrected in glorified bodies, will have the revelation of the Seventh Seal, will have the revelation of the mystery of the Coming of the Lord.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And look on page 230 [p. 271 in Eng.] of the book of The Seals (of this other book), it says:
329 In other words, like this, “If you catch some of My little Flock, that’s filled with My Oil and wine, see, wine and Oil of the pure Word, see, and you are going to kill them. Cause, you, you’re doing it. That’s what you’re doing. Don’t you force them to say any ‘Hail Mary,’ or do anything like that, or some of your creeds. You keep your hands off of them. They know where they’re going, for they are anointed with My Oil. And by being anointed with My Oil, they have the wine of joy, ’cause they know My Word of promise [WSS] «the 2nd Coming of the Lord» ([JBP] see, they have the revelation of that mystery), ‘I’m going to raise them up again.’ Don’t hurt That! Don’t go trying to messing them up. Because, just keep away from It. No.” All…
330 He vindicates His Word and brings It in. They knowed. They knew they would rise again. Oh, how I like that! Whew! They’ll rise again.
[JBP] In other words, see that those who will have this revelation are those who will be transformed and also those who will be resurrected; because “the dead will hear the Voice of the Son of God and will arise.”1
[“THE PROPHETIC WORD IS THE LIGHT OF THE LAST DAY”]
[WSS] …they will have the revelation of the mystery of the [Second] Coming of the Lord.
And the Seventh Seal and the Seventh Trumpet is the Coming of the Lord – it is the Coming of the Lord and the Seventh Trumpet is Moses and Elijah.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the book of Quotations,2 on page 160, it tells us in paragraph 1420, it says:
1420 – “ You mustn’t misinterpret the Bible. For, Jesus Himself is the interpretation of the Bible, when He’s made manifest…” [WSS] «Fulfilling».
[JBP] And he draws the ages and the Cornerstone; and an arrow towards the Cornerstone.
1420 – “ …in the age that the part of His Body is being made manifest. If it’s a hand age, it must be a hand; it can’t be a head age. If it’s a voice age, well, then, it can’t be a foot age. See? And now we’re at the eye age. And now the next, is Him Hisself, to come. Seeing; prophetic! ([JBP] And he draws a Cornerstone).
77 See, down through the age, we started off from the foundation, from the first church age; when the Seed went in the ground, the complete Seed. Then it come out through the feet, Luther; come back out then through Wesley; then in to Pentecostals, the tongues, in the lips, see; now it’s in the eyes, prophetic, of Malachi 4, and so forth. And now there’s nothing else left for it to come but Him Himself to step into that, ’cause that’s the last thing there is. The next is the intelligence, and we have no intelligence of our own; it’s His.”
[JBP] And he writes:
[WSS] «The Intelligence of the Lord = the Mind».
«Moses and Elijah — the Coming of the Lord».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Look at 1421, it says [Quotations]:3
1421 – “ And to misplace It, you might make Him God in one age, and—and the next age you’d make Him a history, to misplace It. […]
 To dislocate the Scriptures, you might put His body together wrong, the foot where the head should be, or something. Just the same as a… Other words, you might have Jesus teaching Moses’ message. You might have… or even Wesley teaching Luther’s age. You might have now, our age, teaching Pentecost, the Pentecostal message. You see what a mess It would be in? Pentecost has already showed its colors. Luther has already showed his, went off into denomination.”
[JBP] And there he draws the ages, numbers them up to 7; and at the top he writes: [WSS] «Head», and he writes: [WSS] «8».
And he also writes: [WSS] «Do not dislocate the Scripture».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He goes on to say [“THE PROPHETIC WORD IS THE LIGHT OF THE LAST DAY”]:
[WSS] Now, notice, it seems like everything is tangled up; but no. Everything is placed in such a way that no one can untangle it, but the one who is ordained to do it and make it known to the people of God.
A puzzle. Brother Branham speaks of a puzzle; but someone sent from God has to appear to place the puzzle properly. Others try and put (he says) ([JBP] that is, brother Branham says): “They place the cow eating on top of a tree.”
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And he says that in the message “CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY OF GOD REVEALED”4 on one of the occasions that he speaks it. He says (page 16 and 17):
 When you read, “In the beginning God created,” there is Christ. See? Every… From that, to the “Amen” in Revelation, is every Word testifying of Jesus Christ.
122 That’s why these added books that they call the Second Book of Daniel, and the—the Book of the Maccabees, adds purgatory and stuff like that, see, it’s not spoke of in the Scripture. See? It doesn’t theme up with the rest of It. There’s no place to place purgatory in there. There is no place to place intercession of saints, and things. There is no place in there for that. There is no place for a denomination. There is no place for—for a creeds outside of the—of the Bible. See? So when you see those things, they—they just don’t come into the picture. And that’s why people has added those, and got their—their—their jigsaw puzzle all mixed up. See? They can’t make it right, “same yesterday, today, and forever.”
123 But, if the thing is put together right, there is the entire picture of the fall and regeneration. The whole picture of creation, and God’s whole plan revealed right in Jesus Christ. Amen! ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «have the entire picture» That’s the whole picture set together, every little crook and corner. It’s just like… Now, I don’t mean to be sacrilegious by this, but it’s just like putting a jigsaw puzzle together.
124 That’s why we got pictures today that looks horrible. Say, “We are believers,” and the cow picking grass up in top of the tree ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «the puzzle» ([JBP] he writes): [WSS] «cow» ([JBP] as well). Don’t work. That’s when they say, “Yeah, He’s every way, but just of a certain… He’s the same yesterday, today, and forever, all but a certain thing.” See? Then you ruin your picture.
125 The Bible said He is the same!
[JBP] Like they may also say: “God always speaks through human beings to the people, through a veil of flesh (See? They believe that part), but not that way”; that is, not in the way that it is being revealed now in the fulfillment of what He promised: “That is not the way.”
But God has said that He has always spoken through His instruments. See? They believe a certain part, and they then ruin the picture. And there he writes: [WSS] «the puzzle».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And also in the book of The Seals, let’s see a place there on page 336 [p. 395 in Eng.] (of the message “THE SIXTH SEAL”); the first paragraph says:
52 But when you see Scripture dovetailing with Scripture, making it a constant continuity where they come together. The Scriptures, where This one leaves off here, This other one over here comes and dovetails in, and draws the whole picture out.
53 Like putting a crossword puzzle together, like. You find the piece that fits in. There is nothing else can fit it. Then you’re getting the picture fixed.
54 And there’s only One can do that, that’s the Lamb, and so we’re looking to Him.
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «the puzzle».
[JBP] And he draws a Pyramid and the ages.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Our brother William continues saying [“THE PROPHETIC WORD IS THE LIGHT OF THE LAST DAY”]:
[WSS] Now, being that the rapturing faith is given by the Thunders, and the Thunders reveal the Seventh Seal, then the secret of the rapturing faith, the revelation for the rapture is the revelation of the Coming of the Lord. It is as simple as that.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Our brother William tells us:
THE SON OF DAVID COMING IN THE NAME OF THE LORD
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Sunday, April 5, 2009
Cayey, Puerto Rico
When it comes to the time for the restoration of something, there are many things with which people stumble over.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Let’s go for a moment here to page 77 of the message “THE FUTURE HOME OF THE HEAVENLY BRIDEGROOM AND THE EARTHLY BRIDE,”5 our brother Branham tells us:
560 He give Peter the keys to the Kingdom, and what was bound at Pentecost is bound forever. That’s the reason the Bride come into re-preview, the second time; there has to be a Church called out of the latter day, like there was in the first day, just exactly. The Tree has come from its roots, up to the Bride Tree, like it did in that time; God’s masterpiece again, as I said two Sundays ago, to be taken to the City.
[JBP] And there he writes: [WSS] «Bound in Pentecost».
«The vision of the Bride».
And he draws a Cornerstone and the ages.
There he also writes:
[WSS] «Peter and the Keys of the Kingdom».
[WSS] «The Masterpiece».
 God bless you. “I now believe.”
561 Satan is defeated. He knows. He’s on the earth, he is going like a roaring lion. It isn’t long till he’s, oh, he’s finished. He knows his time. He’s going like a roaring lion.
562 But, remember, the Prince of Peace stands by; the Great Divine One. The Architect of my being, the Architect Who built me what I am, Who built you what you are, is here. If the Architect, Who knows how to put the building together ([JBP] and he draws a Pyramid), its right place ([JBP] and he draws another little Pyramid above), who knows better than the Architect? And He’s here to prove, Hisself, He’s here.
563 Now it’s based upon your faith. Believe, only believe!
[JBP] And he also draws a Pyramid and the ages.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And our brother William goes on to say here, where we stopped, from this message “THE SON OF DAVID COMING IN THE NAME OF THE LORD.” (Let’s begin):
[WSS] When the time comes for the restoration of something, there are many things with which people stumble over. You can ask those who work in construction; and you will see if they visit a place that is going to be restored, the time comes for it to be restored ([JBP] remember that Elijah is always in the restoration, the ministry of Elijah), you will find that they are breaking a lot of things, and there is scaffolding and a lot of things, and you may stumble over some of them or some of the things that are being done there.
Now, when all things are restored, you will no longer see those things: scaffolding and pieces of wood or blocks on one side and on the other. The time for the restoration also means a moment, a period of time of destruction of some things that were not in the original; and if you are going to restore, you have to remove what was not in the original.
And now, the time for the restoration of all things will have a very difficult stage where many physical things will be destroyed; and that will be during the great tribulation, where that stage will become more difficult for mankind, for the earthly kingdoms, for all governments.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Look in the book of The Ages unedited6 (this book in this color [brown]; most of you have this color, the books), it says on page 388:
83 Now, you see, and then all of Jerusalem was destroyed. Now that… Now this here is perfectly a parallel, Revelation 7. Now watch! From the time of Titus’ besieging Jerusalem, within the world, there hasn’t been a time down through history that all the world went to war until 1914. Now listen close! Now here’s where Mr. Rutherford got off the wrong foot on, I’m sure, right here. Now watch:
And after these things I saw another angel stand-…four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, (That’s standing like this, on the four corners of the earth.) holding the four winds of the earth, (Now, anybody knows what winds means in the Bible, winds is “war, strife,” the devil is the power, the prince of the air, you see.) …and holding the four winds… that they shall not blow upon the earth, or…the sea,…
“And… another angel descending from the east (from which Jesus will come), having the seal of the living God ([JBP] he writes): [WSS] «Rev. 7:2»: in his forehand, in his hand: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, that was going to destroy the world, saying, who… was given [WSS] «atomic» ([JBP] that is, atomic power) to hurt the sea and the earth,
Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor… trees, until we have sealed the servants of our God in their forehead.”
[JBP] And there he writes in the area of notes, he writes:
[WSS] «The Angel that stopped ([JBP] in other words, that detained) the 2nd World War».
[JBP] And it is the same one that is stopping the Third World War from starting, which is being stopped until the 144,000 are sealed, and —of course— we are transformed and we are taken out of here, we go in the rapture to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.
84 Now, God don’t have time, His is Eternity. We measure by times, the only thing we know is inches and squares, and miles, and so forth. God is Eternity, no beginning or end. See, He’s—He’s Eternal.
85 Now, in 1914 the whole world was marching into Germany for a world war, that’s right, all the world to a world war. And did you notice? Sure was a strange thing.
86 I want my good friend sitting here, Brother Wood’s father, to get this clear. See, they was… he’s a converted Jehovah Witness, you see.
87 And so then this, all of them was marching to war. You well remember it, in 1914. Now, isn’t it strange (right in The Decline of the World’s War, I have the volumes of it, in volume two, about page forty-four) that they do not know to this day who stopped that war. Kaiser Wilhelm said he never issued no such a thing. But, all of a sudden, it stopped and nobody knows why. They were fighting, here come the… up front, and the… all come: “It was all over, the war was over.” And they had already signed a treaty of peace, knowing not what happened.
88 Now, of course, that would take a day or two to bring all that out. They didn’t know; but let’s bottle it and hit the high spots. It was God that stopped it ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «the war – 1914. Rev. 7:2», to fulfill His Word! There’s that Angel that stopped it. Those Angels went forth with a slaughtering weapon (What?) to destroy the whole world, and another Angel said, “Wait a minute! Don’t do that, we’ve got to seal these servants of our God in their forehead, first.”
[JBP] And he draws a Star of David there.
[JBP] And mankind, if they knew that because of Israel and that the 144,000 haven’t yet been sealed, the Third World War hasn’t been unleashed: they would assemble everything and they would all try to prevent the sealing of the 144,000 from happening. Because what the devil wants is to destroy.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And look in the book of The Seals, let’s turn there to page 458 [p. 546 in Eng.] (at the bottom):
173 This time was between the Sixth and Seventh Seal, that He calls these people, spoken of by Jesus in Matthew the 24th chapter and the 31st verse, that we’ve just read, see. Trumpets here, the two witnesses of the… When the trumpet sounds, is the trumpet of the two witnesses of the age of grace for the Jews. One trumpet sound, you notice, one trumpet sound. He said He’d sound the trumpet. Now notice over here, 31st.
And he shall send forth his angels (not one, see; there’s two of them ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «Moses and Elijah» with a great sound of a trumpet,…
[JBP] And here he writes: [WSS] «The Great Voice of Trumpet and Moses and Elijah».
174 What is it? When God gets ready to speak, there’s a sound of a trumpet. That’s always His Voice. It’s calling to battle, see. God speaks. These angels will come forth with the sounding of the trumpet.
175 And did you notice, at the last angel’s Message, the trumpet sounds. The first angel’s message, a trumpet sound; second angel’s, a trumpet sounded, when He sent it out.
[JBP] And here he also writes: [WSS] «The Great Voice of Trumpet».
 Notice, but when the Seals were announced, they were all in one great, Divine thing, to call out a group of people; there was one trumpet sound, and Seven Seals were broke.
176 Notice, “Gather His elected Jews from the four parts of the heavens.”
[JBP] And there he writes: [WSS] «Heaven», in other words, from Heaven.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Our brother William Soto Santiago goes on to say here [“THE SON OF DAVID COMING IN THE NAME OF THE LORD”]:
[WSS] Now, before entering this difficult stage, the time will begin…
[JBP] That is, that difficult stage of the divine judgments, of that Third World War.
[WSS] Now, before entering this difficult stage, the time of the restoration of all things will begin; because when the Last Day enters, that is the time for the restoration of all things.
The Last Day is the seventh millennium from Adam until now, represented in the seventh day of the week. The beginning of the seventh millennium is a difficult time for the human race; and we don’t know for how long, but each day will be more difficult for mankind.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the message:

Santiago de Chile, Chile
And now, the mystery of God in Christ is the mystery that is manifested according to the Divine Program for the realization of God’s thought, to reach the goal of having a Creation with eternal life.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the message “THE UNVEILING OF GOD,”7 on page 16 Reverend William Branham tells us:
83 This is a part of His way. This is the way that He manifests Himself to us, manifests the Eternal Word, God, Jehovah made flesh. Like in Saint John 1, In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the… In the beginning was Elohim, and Elohim was… became the Word, and the Word was Elohim ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «Elohim». And the Word was made Elohim.” See? It’s the same thing, just unfolding.
84 Like the attribute, see, it is in God. A attribute is your thought ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «the attribute = the thought». God in the beginning, the Eternal, He wasn’t even a God. He was the Eternal. He wasn’t even God; God is “an object of worship,” or something. See? So He wasn’t even that. He was Elohim, the Eternal. But in Him was thoughts. He wanted to become material. And what did He do? Then He spoke a Word, and the Word was materialized. That’s the whole picture, from Genesis to Revelation. Is nothing wrong. It’s Elohim materializing so He can be touched, feel. And in the Millennium, there is Elohim sitting on the Throne, see, that’s right, with all of His subjects around Him, that He predestinated before the foundation of the world.
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «Elohim» (and he draws a Pyramid and the ages); of course, above, in the Age of the Cornerstone, Dispensation of the Kingdom, which is the one that goes until the end of the Millennium.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He goes on to say [“GOD’S PROGRAM”]:
[WSS] Now, in the Program that is carried out in the construction of a building there are things that were not there when the construction or acquisition of a building, that is, having a building, came into the thought of the person’s heart.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the message “SHALOM”8 (the one preached on January 19, 1964), on page 33, it says:
203 A Word is a “thought expressed.” ([JBP] He writes): [WSS] «a word = a thought expressed». God, in His thinking, thought It, and expressed It through His prophets, and now It has to be fulfilled.
[JBP] He draws a Cornerstone and the ages. He is referring to the Church of the Lord as a spiritual Temple.
 And, when, He foretold us of these things so we wouldn’t make a mistake and blunder in darkness then, when we see it being fulfilled.
204 Now, He promised to send Christ the second time ([JBP] he writes): [WSS] «2nd Coming» ([JBP] and an arrow towards a drawing of the Cornerstone and the ages). And whenever He does, when Christ comes the second time, there will be an Eternal shalom.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Our brother William goes on to say here, he says [“GOD’S PROGRAM”]:
[WSS] When a person thinks of having a building, it is something that comes from within, like when he thinks of having a house; but, see, when he thinks about having a building he is not thinking about the scaffolding, he is not thinking about the walls that will make the raised floor; he is thinking about a nicely painted, beautiful, finished building, because that is the goal.
([JBP] That is, those who know about blueprints: you can see that there are no drawings of the scaffolding, or the buckets or the shovels in the blueprint; that doesn’t appear there).
But then when the program is made (the design is made and the whole program that has to be carried out for the construction of that building is made, and thus reach the goal of having a building), then things have to be placed there that were not in the original thought, things that were not in the attribute; the attribute is the building, but then in the program, then you have to put scaffolding in place to carry out that program and obtain that goal.
Now, we find that God, in order to reach the goal that He has: to have a Creation with eternal life, He has placed —to carry out that Program— things that will not be in eternity. And there we can see the cause for the emergence of Lucifer, Luzbel or Lucifer.
([JBP] See? That archangel was created, but he will not be in eternity. At the end of the Millennium he will be cast into the lake of fire).
In the construction of a building…; look, the building doesn’t cause problems ([JBP] that is, the Church of the Lord, the elect of each age: they don’t cause problems), but if a scaffold falls on anyone: it ruins him; if panels fall on him (that is temporary), it causes him a lot of trouble.
Now, we find that all those things that are temporary have a purpose…
[JBP] In other words, they have a purpose for carrying out that construction.
But they are not going to say (the scaffolding): “I did an important job here,” or the jacks (which are to support the false floor); or the panels: “I did an important job here, so I am going to stay here.”
That wasn’t in the original. Therefore, all that is taken out at the end of the construction. And what is not damaged or hasn’t been damaged: it is kept; and what is damaged (as it happens several times, when some scaffolding or some panel is damaged): it is picked up with the debris and thrown away.
And that is how the foolish group is: they are written in the Book of Life; they are written in the… (let’s say) in the list that the Contractor has, of the things that he has in his warehouse. But if that got damaged, they take that object or that item out of the list, and they take it out; that jack or that scaffolding was an important part, but it got damaged.
And so it happens with the foolish ones: They do a work, and when they think and believe that they are the ones that because they have done an important work…, and they start to throw themselves over it (like the scaffoldings and the jacks), and do damage to that Building: they bend everything, they twist the revelation that they have and the interpretation of the Word; and they are erased from the Book of Life.
So are with things that the Contractor has, that he has in his list of things to perform that construction.
As he says here: [WSS] “They are temporary things that served a purpose.” And the best they can do is to stay arm in arm with those in the spiritual Temple, aware that their names may be blotted out. And he says:
[WSS] …and because all things work together for good for those who are God’s chosen ones, those who love God and those whom God loves, then the scaffolding and the panels and all those temporary things are going to help them.
([JBP] You see? They have an important part too; but that is as far as it goes. He continues to say):
Now, we can see that there is a Program; and in the Program may be many things, but in the attribute is that which is eternal.
[JBP] And it is like when that building is about to be finished: you can see a lot of dust, you can see from the outside and see machinery and everything being picked up, and you can’t see the building well; and it is already in the finishing touches, being cleaned. Anyone can pass by there —and those are the neighbors—; those who passed by the side of Noah’s ark also: and they looked at Noah and what they were doing was making fun of him and criticizing him. But the one who knows that a cleansing is being carried out there…
Remember the time when the student was told (I think it was): “Where is Africa?” And he pulled back…, because he said to him: “You are not going to be able to see it up there close; pull back.” And when he saw it, it was written (something like this): “Africa.” See? From far away he saw it.
So are the chosen ones, who see like a turbulence or something that is happening, and they look and pull back, that is, they look at the whole picture like that: and what they see are angels. That is also another anecdote of a painting with a lot of… later we look for all those anecdotes and we can read them.
But look, there in that cloud that rises when everything is being gathered in a construction (we are going to put it in that spiritual part also): when they see, they see Angels. And they are the Angels: the ministries of Moses and Elijah, that are at this time doing that gathering, and gathering everything around that construction. And everything that is not useful will be taken out; and only the Building that was in the original, in the original Blueprint, will remain. And that work is what the harvesting Angels do, which are the ministries of Moses and Elijah.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Look on page 44 and 45 of the message “GOD’S POWER TO TRANSFORM,”9 look at what brother Branham tells us here:
228 You were in the loins of your father, but your father could not have any fellowship with you until you was transformed into a body of flesh.
229 My son there was in me. I—I—I wanted a son, but he was in me then. See? He was in me then. But through wedlock, he was transformed into a man like me, and then he become like me.
230 And you become like your parents, see, ’cause it was in you, to begin with. Now if we are the sons of God, His attributes… ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «attribute» Which, you are an attribute of your father, not your mother; your father. The germ lays in the father. See? And now your mother was an incubator that bear you, bear the seed of your father. (JBP] And he writes): [WSS] «incubator = woman». See?
231 And the earth, in flesh, is also the incubator that bears the seed of God. See, just exactly. Not the world, how great the world is; it’s how great the God that made it. See? See?
232 Now if you are a son and daughter of God, then you were in God at the beginning. You’re His attribute. If you wasn’t there then, then you never was or never will be.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in the book of Quotations10it tells us, on page 28, paragraph 235, it says:
235 – “ How many know that God put your name in the Lamb’s Book of Life before the foundation of the world? Then, in God’s thinking, we were born right then into His Kingdom ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «a thought of God expressed» ([JBP] and he draws a Pyramid and the ages).
180 One day there come a body through a holy wedlock, my father and mother. And they sired me, and here I come, William Branham, represented in a body of flesh. Now you know me as William Branham, a man. God knowed me as William Branham, a thought in His Own mind, and an expression.
181 What is a word? A word is a thought expressed. When He spoke and said, ‘Let him come,’ I come. When He says, ‘Let him come again,’ I’ll come again.” ([JBP] And that is in the resurrection).
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in the message “THE INVISIBLE UNION OF THE BRIDE OF CHRIST,”11 it tells us here on page 12 and 13:
 He was only the manifestation of the attributes of God, for He was the Son of God.
59 And any son is the attributes of his father, and just as you were in the genes of your father, in the body of your father when he was a young boy, you were in him. Yet, he could not have fellowship with you, because he didn’t know you. But then, through the bedding grounds of a mother, you were brought forth into the earth and become in the image of your father, then he could fellowship with you.
60 And so were you, sons of God and daughters of God, before there even was a moon, stars, or a molecule. You were sons and daughters of God, for you are only the physical manifestation of the attributes that was in God at the beginning. For, there’s only one form of Eternal Life, and that was you, before. You don’t know nothing about it. Neither did you know when you was in your earthly father, but you are manifested to… in his image. In the image of God you are made, and you were manifested for the glory and the fellowship of God.
61 And, therefore, as sure as your gene had to be in your father, before your natural birth, your spiritual gene had to be in God, because you’re an expression of the attributes of His thoughts, before the foundation of the world ([JBP] he writes): [WSS] «attributes». Right. No way around it. That’s right. Now, now we notice, then, that Life being in you, God’s Life being in you, from the foundation of the world.
62 Now, now, you cannot mix denomination creed with the Word, because they’re too contrary, one to the other.
63 That’s exactly what Satan tried to do with his intellectual conception to Eve. He said… he admitted that God said it, but he said, “Surely, you’ll not die.” See? And they believe that.
64 And that’s what creed has done, tonight. Denomination has separated the people from the Word of God. Didn’t Jesus say, when He come, “You, through your tradition, have made the Commandments of God of no effect to the people”? [Congregation says, “Amen.”—Ed.] And through our creed, we have disassociated the fellowship of the Holy Spirit to anoint the Word of God that’s laced out for this generation. We have separated the people so, by denomination, that they cannot have a chance to see It.
65 Now, God, He, every generation, He adds a new part of His Book.
[JBP] That is, in the construction of that spiritual Temple.
 …He, every generation, He adds a new part of His Book.
[JBP] And there he draws the ages, a Cornerstone, and a Star of David at the top.
And he writes: [WSS] «The Book of God».
 It all goes together.
66 Like my body was built. I’m told it started in the spine, but wasn’t all spine. It went from that to ribs, and from… lungs, and to hands, and arms, and feet, and so forth, and it come on out to be the person that I am.
67 And so was God manifested in the beginning. And finally [WSS] «1» He was appeared as Jehovah [WSS] «with Moses», God the Father. [WSS] «2» Then He appeared as God the Son, in Jesus Christ. Now ([JBP] and there he writes): [WSS] «3» He’s appeared as God the Holy Ghost. The same God, all the time, three manifestations of the same—same God.
68 Now, we find in this, that, each generation, God has lotted His Word from the beginning.
69 Just like evolution came. Just like first thing God created, probably, was… Let’s say He created botany life, first. Then He created animal life, next. Then He created human life, next. Kind of an evolution, rising higher.
70 So has it been in God and His Church. Justification under Luther. Sanct-… That’s pulling His Bride out, now. He’s creating His Bride. Justification under Luther; sanctification under Wesley; and so forth, you see. He, the evolution of the Spirit being given more and more, ’cause the Body is building, coming to the Head, which is Christ, the Body of Christ.
[JBP] And he draws a Cornerstone and the ages, and a lot of little arrows upwards, towards the Cornerstone.
71 Now, She, as a woman, if She is married to Christ ([JBP] that is, the Church) the Word, She cannot be married to a church denomination at the same time, for She’s bound by it. She shall… cannot live with both husbands at the same time. They’re contrary, one to the other. One is God-sent, the other one is man-made, so they’re contrary. Said, “Let every man’s word be a lie; Mine be the Truth.”
[JBP] And he draws a Star of David, and he writes: [WSS] «The Word for each age or dispensation is true».
 God said that.
72 Just as much contrary to one another, as law was to grace, as Paul speaking of here.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Our brother William goes on to say here [“GOD’S PROGRAM”]:
[WSS] And in the divine attribute is to have a universe, a world, with eternal sons and daughters. That is where we are, that is why we are eternal with God.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And a little further down, in this same message, he says [“GOD’S PROGRAM”]:
[WSS] (…) Now, in the construction of a building there are different stages. An eight-story building, well, has eight stages. And we find that the blocks or the concrete or the steel that is placed on the floor or on a floor, is not the same that is going to be placed higher; because you cannot take it out of there to place it higher, because it would break the stage that has already passed; then you have to have new material; you have to have material assigned for that part, and be placed there working in that stage.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the book of Quotations,12 on page 132, paragraph 1178, it says:
1178 – “ ‘Now we are the Sons of God,’ not we will be. We’re the attributes of God’s thinking. See? […]
 Dwelling in Heavenly places in Christ, in His glorious Presence. Even physical death will pass away then; just as spiritual death has passed away now.
263 There is no such a thing as spiritual death now, to a—to a— a baptized saint of God. ‘Though he were dead, yet shall he live. Whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die.’”
[JBP] And there he writes at the top: [WSS] «We are the [eternal] attributes of the thought of God».
1178 – “‘Though he were dead, yet shall he live. Whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die.’ All Scripture, It must be fulfilled. See? You can’t die. You got Eternal Life. Only thing, the Redeemer has made you recognize it. And you were always That, and that’s the reason you see the day you’re living in. […] ([JBP] that is, recognize the Day in which one is living).
267 And if you are the Bride, the Bride is a part of the Husband. And if… The only place that you’ll ever recognize It, is recognize what part of that Husband (that Word) you are, or you can’t recognize being the Bride.”
[JBP] And he draws the ages there, numbers them: [WSS] «1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7», and above the Cornerstone, and he writes: [WSS] «8».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Our brother William goes on to say [“GOD’S PROGRAM”]:
[WSS] And from age to age we find, in the Dispensation of Grace, that God has sent different messengers. Paul said, “I as an expert builder laid the foundation; and let others come and build upon it – he who builds upon it then let him see how he builds upon it…”13
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the message “TOWER OF BABEL,”14 there he speaks to us (brother Branham) Who is the one with the blueprints. On page 13 he says:
88 But, you see, as it is in the world so is it in the church. They’re trying to build something. God don’t need your help to build His Kingdom. God just wants you to preach the Word. He’ll do the building. He’s the Architect. He’s got the plans laid out Here.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Notice… Our brother William goes on saying [“GOD’ PROGRAM”]:
[WSS] …that is, it has to do with how he works in that construction, which is the construction of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] There is a place in the book of The Ages, page 352 [p. 315 in Eng.]:
Now He is not only giving crowns but He says that these in the bride will be made pillars in the temple of God ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «the Temple = The Church». But what is the temple of God? Jesus spoke of His body as being the temple. It was. It was the temple of God. But now that we are His body, the true church is the temple of God by the Holy Ghost within us ([JBP] and there he writes): [WSS] «adopted». Now He is going to make the overcomer a pillar in that temple. But what is a pillar? A pillar is actually a part of the foundation for it holds up the superstructure. Praise God, that puts the overcomer right in with the apostles and prophets…
[JBP] And he draws the ages and the Cornerstone.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] See, on 353 (in this one it is 357), there you can write it above, because that is where he says… after the Scripture of Ephesians 2:19, he says [The Ages] [p. 315-316]:
Yes, that verse 22 says that we are builded together with them. Everything went through the DOOR (Jesus) ([JBP] it is always through the Door that one has to enter) and is a part of that body or temple [WSS] «Church». Now when God puts a man in the temple as a pillar and makes him a part of that foundation group what is He doing? He is giving him the revelation of the Word and of Himself, because that is exactly what the apostles and prophets had. Matthew 16:17. There he is in that Word. There he stands. No one can get him out.
[JBP] And in this one he draws a Pyramid and the ages.
But over here in this one [red book] is that he writes: [WSS] «A Pillar = he is given the revelation of the Word and of himself».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And also in the book of Quotations,15 on page 83, paragraph 706, it says:
706 – “ When he comes to fix those stones and to cut them out for the building, what will happen?”
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And look, in the book of “THE SEVENTIETH WEEK OF DANIEL,” where it says that [WMB] “a Stone was cut out of the mountain”… Not that one… Later we will look it up.
Book of Quotations, page 83, paragraph 706, says:
706 – “ When he comes to fix those stones and to cut them out for the building, what will happen? [WSS] «Temple of God» ([JBP] and he draws an arrow and the Cornerstone and the ages, and he writes): [WSS] «stones». Many of them won’t stand the Word test. They’ll love their organization better than they love the Word of God, although that Word be vindicated by that man. He’ll be a prophet that’ll come in the Name of the Lord, and he’ll be the one that’ll come upon the earth. I believe it. Oh, everybody says, ‘It’ll be a group of people.’
237 I want somebody to show me in the Bible where it’ll be a group of people; God would break His Own Word, He can’t do that. No, sir. He promised this. It’ll be a one man.”
[JBP] And he draws a Star of David.
And above he writes: [WSS] «Cutting the stones for the Building, the Temple of God».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Our brother William goes on to say here [“GOD’S PROGRAM”]:
[WSS] Now, we find that in the Millennial Kingdom we will no longer have problems, we will no longer be as carpenters or masons, or working in an office sitting there all day, or working in some business of ours here earthly, but we will be there in the Cabinet of Christ. In other words, the Executive Cabinet of that Kingdom, who are they? It is us.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] On page 131, paragraph 1170, it says [Quotations]:16
1170 – “147 By the same means, for the world is one of His attributes just the same as you are one of His attributes. The world becomes one of His attributes, because it was God’s thinking, in the beginning. To have a world, to be on a Throne, to be a King, to be a Redeemer, to be a Healer, that’s His attributes. 148 Just like an attribute of you.”
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «The attributes of God». «To be a King».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And also on 1179, of page 133, it says [Quotations]:17
1179 – “ Potentially. The Kingdom of God is in the earth now, in the hearts of His saints. It’s His attributes that He begin in the beginning. Now His attributes is redeemed. What’s He waiting? To redeem the earth, to set His attributes on it, to fulfill exactly His predestinated plan.”
[JBP] And there he draws a Star of David.
And he writes: [WSS] «Potentially the attributes».
«Potentially — the Kingdom of God is on Earth».
[WSS] All of that is in the Program and all that is in God’s goal; all that is in the divine attributes; we were in the divine attributes and we are a divine attribute. And that is why He has prepared a Program: to reach the goal of having sons and daughters, and a Kingdom for all eternity.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the message “THE FUTURE HOME OF THE HEAVENLY BRIDEGROOM AND THE EARTHLY BRIDE,”18 it tells us on page 69, it says [P. 60]:
 Let everybody else keep their head down. God bless you.
503 Say, “Remember me in prayer, Brother Branham. I want to be there so bad! I—I don’t want to miss it, Brother Branham. I—I’m checking, I’m doing everything I can, but pray for me now, will you?” God bless you.
504 While you’re thinking of it now, just pray, say, “God…” It’s in your own heart. See, if you feel something tug, tingling at your heart, that’s what it is. It’s that attribute trying to declare itself.
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «If you feel something tugging at your heart, that is the attribute trying to manifest itself».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Our brother William goes on to say here. I am in the message “GOD’S PROGRAM”:
[WSS] Now, the Program of God goes through different stages, and therefore, the attributes of God corresponding to each time go through those stages. But the attributes of God are eternal, those divine attributes, those sons and daughters of God can’t be lost; they are written in Heaven, in the Lamb’s Book of Life, since before the foundation of the world.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the message “LEADERSHIP,”19 on page 16 and 17, it says [P. 14]:
115 The Word of the Lord, sometimes, you have to put It in Its right place or it’s not the Will of the Lord. See? Now let that soak deep and you’ll get a—a general conception of what I’m trying to say.
116 I don’t want the church to fall into the steps that you found over there in England: long hair, and painted-face men, and pervert. We don’t want that! No matter how religious it sounds, and how much Elvis Presley can sing religious songs, he’s still a devil. And I’m no judge ([JBP] he writes): [WSS] «Elvis Presley was Pentecostal», but “By their fruits you know them.” See? He’s a Pentecostal, but that don’t make a bit of difference. See, your fruits bear record of what you are.
117 No matter if the Spirit comes upon him, he could speak in tongues, he could shout, he could heal the sick, and Jesus said, “Many of them will come to Me in that day, and say, ‘Lord, haven’t I done this and that?’ And I’ll say, ‘Depart from Me, you that work iniquity, I never even knew you.’” See?
118 We’ve got to be real, genuine Christians, and the only way we can do that is confront it with this question here of “Eternal Life.”
119 There’s only one form of Eternal Life, and that comes from God. And He foreordained every creature that would ever have It ([JBP] he writes): [WSS] «foreordained». Just as you were the gene in your father, you was a gene in God; one of His attributes to begin with, or you’ll never be There ([JBP] he writes): [WSS] «genes of God: attributes». You come forth in the bedding ground of your mother; your father didn’t know you, you were in his loins. And when you come forth in the bedding ground of the mother, then you become a human being and are made in the image of your father, now you can fellowship with him. And the same thing by God, if you got Eternal Life.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the book of “THE AGES” unedited,20 on page 402, says… A person reads the Scripture; it says [P. 31]:
 [A sister reads: For there shall arise false Christians, false—false Christs,—Ed.] False Christs! [and false prophets,] False prophets! [and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.]
159 There you are. Now, what will rise? There will rise false Christs, false people saying, “I am of Christ.” False prophets, saying, “I am this and I am that.” And they’ll almost deceive the very Elected if it was possible. And there’s only one way that you can ever be saved, that’s when you was chosen before the foundation of the world; that is, the Elected, by foreknowledge, your name was put on the Book back there.
[JBP] And there he writes, referring to that page, he writes:
[WSS] «The attributes of God = the firstborn before the foundation».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in the message… this one we are reading of “THE FUTURE HOME,” on page 37 it says [P. 32]:
257 Now you say, “Well, look at this priest. Wasn’t he a son of God?” It proved he wasn’t. He couldn’t recognize what? Did he say, “I believe the Bible”? Sure. But he couldn’t recognize the expressed Word of the hour. He only had an intellectual learning from some group that had been back before him.
258 And it’s the same thing today! ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «intellectual teaching». See? I know that’s strong, but it’s the Truth.
259 There was the Word, as spoken exactly for that day; and, he, yet he was a scholar, yet he was a renown person, but he could not recognize It. Why? No matter how scholar he was, anything like that, he still didn’t have representation of predestination. See?
260 Only the predestinated will only be the one who does it…
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] That is why he said there, at the beginning which we read in one of the excerpts, that says [“THE PROPHETIC WORD IS THE LIGHT OF THE LAST DAY”]:
[WSS] In clearer words: those who are going to be transformed and raptured along with the dead in Christ who will be resurrected in glorified bodies, will have the revelation of the Seventh Seal, will have the revelation of the mystery of the Coming of the Lord.
[JBP] Only those who are going to be transformed and those who are going to be resurrected; because they are the ones who have representation there in the seventh dimension. They have the representation in God; because we come out of Him, and it is towards Him that we are going to return.
[“THE FUTURE HOME”]:
 …only can be. And you only can do it… ([JBP] See? There is no other way). Because, look, it proves predestination. Cause, if you’ve got Eternal Life, you had to be a part of God all times, ’cause He’s the only One is Eternal. You see it? Oh, my! Think of it.
261 Now watch what happens through the great Millennium.
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «Representation in the 7th dimension».
And we have that representation in the seventh dimension: you have it and I have it.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] On page 39 of this same message, look, he says [“THE FUTURE HOME”] [P. 34]:
274 Heavens and earth have met; God and man is reconciled. A restored Eden has begun; see, all the curse is gone.
275 Just like, all the curse of sin is gone when the Holy Ghost accepts you. See, you don’t accept It; It accepts you, see, ’cause It’s God’s attribute. See, if It’s the Holy Ghost, means, God’s Spirit; and it’s the attribute, the thought of God, has accepted you because that you were ordained for that purpose ([JBP] he writes there): [WSS] «the attribute». See? Yet you was born in sin; but God had that attribute, and here you expressed yourself here on earth, and He comes down and gets you. See, you’re back here; here is where you belong. See? See, sin has lost its power. That’s right. The desire of sin has done gone from your heart, when the Holy Spirit comes in. You are a restored person.
[JBP] And there he also writes: [WSS] «Representation. The attribute of God».
276 And then when the earth is restored, by the same thing, there can be no more cursing, no more storms, no more winds ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «storms», no more typhoons—typhoons, rather. You are reconciled; man and God has met.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He goes on to say [“GOD’S PROGRAM”]:
[WSS] But there is another section, called “the section of the Book of Life,” from which names can be removed; that is, because they were not in God’s original thought, they were not in God’s attribute ([JBP] notice, what we spoke about the scaffoldings: they were not in the original Blueprint, and they can be erased from the list of the Contractor, of those materials that he has) but that they were in the Program of God, in the thoughts that He had to carry out His goal.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the message “WHO IS THIS MELCHISEDEC?”21 on page 26 it says [P. 21]:
116 God vindicates that. That’s always been right. God vindicates it to be true. Show plainly, the predestinated is the only one that’s considered in redemption ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «in the redemption = only the predestined». Did you get it? Let me say that again. The predestinated is the only one that’s considered in redemption. People might be making like, think they are, but the real redemption is those that are predestinated. Because, the very word redeem means “to bring back.”
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «To redeem = to bring back».
And he also writes: [WSS] «the other did not come from God».
 Is that right? The redeem is something… To redeem anything, is, “bring it back to its original place.” Hallelujah! So it’s only the predestinated will be brought back, because the others didn’t come from There [WSS] «from the 7th dimension». See, “bring back!”
117 Being Eternal [WSS] «attributes» with Him, at the beginning [WSS] «in the 7th dimension»… The Eternal Life that you had, His thought of what you was, only, He wanted you to…
[JBP] And I pause here. Look how he was leaving us all those pieces of the puzzle, and how everything was there placed —in each place— in just the right way and form so that whoever put that puzzle together would find every piece and fit it into place; all by the same train of thought.
For it is not man; it is the Holy Spirit who is placing the Word in order, in line, to hit the target. And He will hit the target!
When we are at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, they will say: “He was right. We have hit the target!: because I am here at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb! I obtained the Rapturing Faith! I received it by the One who knew how to put that puzzle together: the Holy Spirit!”; because it is God.
“Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but He reveals His secrets unto His servants the prophets.”22
[“WHO IS THIS MELCHISEDEC?”]
 He wanted me to stand in the pulpit ([JBP] look, he had said that), say. He wanted you to set in the seat tonight. Then we are serving His Eternal purpose. And the one that left home ([JBP] he writes): [WSS] «7th dimension», only come to the earth to serve His purpose.
[JBP] The same thing that he told us there: [WSS] “I have come to bring these good news, and I have to return again to the House of my Father.”23 See? He came from God, he had to return to God again.
The same with us: we came from Him as attributes, and we must return to Him again.
And some day we will encounter each other: in the resurrection. And in that event, in that moment, we will know much better what it means to be an attribute of God, to be part of God’s thought.
 Is that right? All right. Then, after it’s finished, it’s brought back in a glorified state; it’s matured and brought back again.
[JBP] And there he writes, referring to that page:
[WSS] «Those who are not the predestined (attributes of God) did not come from the divine thoughts, they were not an attribute of God».
[JBP] And in another… in this part of notes he also writes:
[WSS] «You will never be the Word, unless you were a thought (an attribute) in Him».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He goes on to say here [“GOD’S PROGRAM”]:
[WSS] And now, just as we remove from a building the scaffolding, the molds and all these things, God will remove all that is temporary, and that which is eternal will remain: the attributes of God.
Now, we have seen the reason for a Program, and especially for God’s Program: it is because He has a goal, and that goal is the divine attributes that have to be manifested, materialized, to exist for all eternity materialized.
[JBP] Here there is another place (let’s also read it), which he writes: [WSS] «Those who have eternal life were with Him and in Him in His thought». And he also writes there: [WSS] «(and the Sun brings it again)».
[JBP] Look at these very, very important writings, where, by having them, we can write next to them: “I am one of those attributes!” And automatically you reflect, you identify, with that Word.
[WSS] God Himself materialized in the person of Jesus of Nazareth; therefore, that body is eternal, it is glorified and eternal.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the book of Quotations,24 on page 28, it tells us, paragraph 231 (look at what it says here):
231 – “ [Question 86] If we were saved before the foundation of the world—were we?. […] [Question 87] Were—were we spirits then?
167 No, we were not even nothing then, but in God’s mind we were. And He spoke it and it materialized. Jesus was slain before… How many knows that the Bible teaches that Jesus Christ was the Lamb slain before the foundation of the world. Why? God spoke it, and when He spoke it, it was as good as finished. And when He saw me, He saw you before the foundation of the world, we were only figurative in His mind.”
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «Attributes, thoughts in God, abstract».
And in the book of The Seals it tells us something about that, that [WMB] “the Title Deed is abstract.”25
And there at the top he writes: [WSS] «We were not theophanic spirits yet when we were saved».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And he continues saying here [“GOD’S PROGRAM”]:
[WSS] Christ said in Revelation, chapter 1: “I am he that liveth, and was dead and, behold, I am alive for ever and ever (that is, for all eternity).” And for all of God’s attributes this is also the case. It is God’s goal that we live for all eternity.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in the book of The Ages, let’s see here page 165 [p. 152 in Eng.]:
Hold this carefully in mind. Now take the next step. Redeem means to buy back. It restores to the original owner. God, by His death, the shed blood BOUGHT [WSS] «redeemed» BACK HIS OWN. He bought back the Spoken Word Seed Bride. “My sheep hear My voice (Word), and they follow Me.” You always were a sheep. You never were a pig or a dog turned into a sheep. That is impossible for every kind of life produces the same kind and there is no change in specie. As we were in the thoughts of God and then expressed in flesh, there had to come a day when we would hear His voice (the Word) ([JBP] he draws a Pyramid and the ages), and hearing that voice become aware of our Father calling us, and recognize that we are the sons of God. We heard His voice and we cried out as did the prodigal son, “Save me, oh, my Father. I am returning to Thee.”
[JBP] In other words, we will soon be in the rapture, going to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, to the seventh dimension, where everything is ready for the welcoming that God has there for His chosen ones.
And —as attributes of God— we thank God that we were in Him, in His thought, since before the foundation of the world.
We are rays of Light here on Earth representing Him, because we have come forth from Him; we are read epistles.26 We are what He first thought of.
It has been a great privilege and a great blessing for me to be able to speak these words to you at the end of the year 2022, which has been a very, very important year; and next year will be even more important.
And the year in which God will fulfill all that was shown in the fulfillment of the Tent Vision: that will be the year where it will be very significant in the Divine Program, because that angelic visitation will take place, as it happened in the First Coming of the Lord, where those of the Old Testament resurrected there with the Lord in His First Coming. And we are preparing for that event.
Then we look at… the one that was left there from the Stone. Let’s see here 114. That is the one. Look, that one goes there, but now we can read it. It says [“THE SEVENTIETH WEEK OF DANIEL”]27:
 It won’t mix.
127 But it was in the days of these empires that the Rock, Stone that was hewed out of the mountain, without hands, smote the image in the feet. Now, “Cut out of a mountain.” Must have been a mountain of stone. It was cut out of the mountain of stone.
[JBP] And he writes there: [WSS] «living stones». And he draws a Pyramid and the ages. [WSS] «1 Peter 2:2-9».
That was it: Living stones! Where are those living stones? Here we are!
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Let us bow our heads.
Our Father, Creator of the Heavens and Earth, I come to You, Lord, and I come before Your presence with all the brethren, with all Your people, from all countries and from this place; all those who correspond to this Dispensation of the Kingdom.
God of Glory: Look at us on this occasion, Lord, through those binoculars, through Your Eyes, which, Lord, are the ministries of Moses and Elijah, Lord; and look at every heart, Father. And, Lord, see there that there is that Blood applied on the lintel and on the doorposts, Lord, of our soul.
Lord, and so always see us through the mercy of God for the last time on this Earth, and see that in Your Temple, in Your Church, is that Blood applied as a sign; Lord, and so let us always be justified before Your presence.
Lord, we thank You for this year 2022:
For all the Word, Lord, that You have brought us through Your Angel Messenger: William Soto Santiago.
For all the Teaching, Lord, that You have brought to us under this glorious Tent, this glorious Great Tent Cathedral, Lord.
Lord, we place ourselves in Your hands in this year 2023.
Father, we desire, we yearn —as brother Branham yearned—, we desire, Lord, that this year, Lord, will be the year of our transformation; and if it doesn’t happen, we will wait for the next one.
But, Lord, we pray that you continue preparing us, that you continue helping us for those great prophetic events, Lord, that are about to take place: such as the resurrection and our transformation.
Lord, we want to be ready, we want to be prepared.
Lord, manifest Yourself powerfully in the midst of Your Church.
And Father, may the Hebrew people, the 144,000, see You manifested in Your Church in the midst of the Bride; and may they be sealed, Lord, before the divine judgments fall upon this planet Earth. We know, Lord, that this will happen before the great tribulation begins. We pray that You will also soon extend Yourself to them, and that they will be sealed by the Angel.
God of Glory, we entrust ourselves into Your hands. Watch over us, as You have watched over us all this year; watch over us this coming year from every sickness, from every physical or spiritual danger.
And, Father, keep us healthy, keep us strong, so that these bodies may last us until the transformation.
I pray for our brother Miguel Bermudez Marin, for all the ministers, for all the brethren and for me too.
Thank You, Lord, for I know that You always hear me.
In Your Eternal and glorious Name, O heavenly Father, revealed as Son of David, William, King of kings and Lord of lords. Amen and amen.
How many are grateful to God? We are all very grateful to Him for what He has given us this year. And there are only a few hours left —less than 24 hours— until the end of this year 2022.
And may we begin the year 2023 with strength! With courage! With enthusiasm! With the revival that God is bringing us at this time from this place!: From the place where He said that the Bride would be impacted, the foolish impacted, the world and the Hebrew people impacted.
God is fulfilling His Word.
God bless you, God keep you, and continue to have a happy day.
And I reiterate: Happy and prosperous year 2023!
God bless you and God keep you all.
With us Reverend William Perez.
