The masculine and feminine spirit in the first Adam and in the second Adam
The masculine and feminine spirit in the first Adam and in the second Adam
Thank you very much Reverend William Perez. Good morning to all those who are present and all those who are connected through the Amazonas satellite or the internet, this morning, today Saturday, September 3 of this year 2022.
We open out Bibles in the book of Genesis, in chapter 2, verse 20 and on, it says:
20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.
21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] “THE MASCULINE AND FEMININE SPIRIT IN THE FIRST ADAM AND THE SECOND ADAM,” that is, in Jesus. Therefore, the feminine spirit that came out of the first Adam and that came out of the second Adam.
THOSE WHO HAVE FAITH FOR THE PRESERVATION OF THE SOUL
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Sunday, December 2, 2022
Here God said [Genesis 1:26]: “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.”
In this space between: “In our image,” and then: “After our likeness,” there was a lapse of time that we don’t know, because here it says [Genesis 1:27]:
“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”
But it doesn’t say that He created him in image and likeness, because the physical likeness is given later in chapter 2, verse 7, where it says:
“And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the message “GOD’S POWER TO TRANSFORM,”1 Reverend William Branham tells us:
40 I think, many times, when even critics begin to read the Book of Genesis, they begin to criticize It, because it seems like It constantly repeats Itself, or throws you out here and there.
41 But if we would just notice for a moment, before we get into our text, that, Moses saw the vision. And God spoke to him. God spoke to Moses face to face, lip to ear. Now, He never spoke to any other man like that, as He did Moses. Now, Moses was a great, one of the greatest of all the prophets. He was a type of Christ. And now God can speak, He has a voice. It’s been heard. God can speak.
42 And God can write. God wrote the ten Commandments with His Own finger.2 He wrote on the walls of—of Babylon once, with His finger.3 He stooped down and wrote in sand one time, with His finger.4 God can speak. God can read. God can write.
[JBP] And brother William writes on the side: [WSS] «God speaks, writes, reads».
What a privilege and blessing to have the writings of this mighty Angel!
43 God is the Fountain of all grace and Power, and of all Divine wisdom, is in God. So therefore, knowing that, He is the only Creator there is. There is no other creator but God. Satan cannot create, at all, he only perverts what’s been created. But God is the only Creator.
44 Therefore, He created by His Word. He sent His Word. So all the seeds that He had placed upon the earth, He formed those seeds by His Own Word, for there was no nothing else to make the seed out of. He had placed them, and they were beneath the water. He just said, “Let there be this, and let there be that.”
45 Now we find out that, many times, it look like the Bible repeating or saying something to what It doesn’t say. For instance, in Genesis 15 we find that, “God created man in His Own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.” And then He goes on, and many things happened upon the earth.
46 Then we come to find out, there was no man to till the soil. “Then God created man out of the dust of the earth.” That was a different man. “And He breathed the spirit of life into him, and he became a living soul.”
[JBP] He writes: [WSS] «theophany, man and woman, Adam».
[JBP] And when it is spoken that He created man (that is, created him), he writes: [WSS] «flesh».
47 The first man was in the image of God, which is Spirit. John 4, says, “God is a Spirit, and they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.” But God is a Spirit. And the first man, that He created, was spirit-man, and he was in the image and in the likeness of God.
48 And then He put this man in flesh, and man fell. So then God came down and become in the image of man, that He might redeem that fallen man. That’s the real Gospel story, to my—to my opinion.
49 Now, God, in six thousand years, had planted all these wonderful seeds [WSS] «6 thousand years», or He had spoke His Word. “It shall be this way. This tree shall be. This shall be.” Everything was perfect. It was just good. And He commanded each one of those seeds that they would be, they would transform themselves into the plant of which kind of life that the Word of God had spoken in them should be. If it was an oak tree, it was to bring forth an oak. If it was a palm, it was to bring forth a palm.
50 Because, the great Creator had just sent forth His Word, and the Word seed was there before the real seed was ever formed. And the Word [WSS] «Christ» formed the seed. See, “He made the world out of things that does not appear.” See, He—He made the world by His Word. God spoke everything into existence.
51 And being God, the Creator, speaking all things into existence, it must have been a perfect world. It was a—a beautiful place. It was a—a real genuine paradise here on the earth.
[JBP] Further on he says [P. 7]:
55 And God made him a helpmate, out of his own body; perhaps a rib from over his heart, so she would be close to him, and made him a helpmate. It really wasn’t his wife as yet [WSS] «they were not husband and wife yet; and he wasn’t yet adopted» ([JBP] brother William writes), no more than it was man as yet; He had just spoke it. And there is where the trouble come, Satan found her before Adam did ([JBP] he writes): [WSS] «Satan in the serpent». So, it was just His Word He had spoken.
[JBP] And on page 10 at the bottom to have, it says [P. 8]:
58 Now this great Creator had placed His created son. Now, Adam was His first created son. Jesus was His only begotten Son, see, He was begotten by a woman. But Adam was right straight from the hand of God, in the creation.
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «Adam: first son of God incarnated on Earth».
59 Now the headquarters, with His—His son and His son’s bride over all, it looked so perfect. There was a—a man, the head of all of it, His Own son and his bride.
60 And every seed was perfect, the palms, and the oaks, and the grass, and the birds, and the animals. And everything was in perfect order with the Commandment of God, “Don’t change your nature. Bring forth of its kind, every seed! Oak, don’t you never be perverted into a pawpaw tree.” See? “Palm, don’t you be perverted into something else. But every seed after his kind!” And He had—He had watched it through the times.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Our brother William goes on to say here [“THOSE WHO HAVE FAITH FOR THE PRESERVATION OF THE SOUL”]:
[WSS] The human being, being created by God in His image and likeness, is a triune being; because God is a triune being: He is Father, He is Spirit and He is also body.
He is Father, He is Spirit, He is Son: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. There is a trinity in God, which is undeniable.
[JBP] And he makes a drawing in various studies, and writes: [WSS] «1, 2, 3». That is, in the little drawing in the center, he writes: «1», in the outer one: «2» and in the third one he writes: «1».
[JBP] And writes: [WSS] «Souls have form and speak».
[JBP] And he writes… We look there, in the book of Revelation, which are the Scriptures that he placed there, so we can see there:
Revelation, chapter 6, verse 9, tells us:
9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
10 And they cried with a loud voice ([JBP] See? That is why he wrote there): [WSS] «Souls have form and speak», saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
[JBP] And also in Revelation, chapter 7, from 9 to 10, it also tells us:
9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
[JBP] And also Revelation 20, verse 4:
4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
[JBP] Those were the Scriptures that he placed in that study.
And he goes on to say in this message we are reading [“THOSE WHO HAVE FAITH FOR THE PRESERVATION OF THE SOUL”]:
[WSS] And now, if God created the human being in His image and likeness and God is triune, then the human being is also triune. The human being is: soul, spirit and body.
Father is the ultimate: the eternal God, Creator of the Heavens and the Earth.
Then He is also Spirit: that is the image of God, which is the Holy Spirit and which is an angelic body of another dimension that appeared to the prophets in the Old Testament starting from Adam.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And it tells us in the book of “HEBREWS, PART 3” (this is in the book of “Conduct, Order and Doctrine” which was placed in this booklet). “HEBREWS, PART 3,”6 page 334 at the bottom, it says:
635 Now, the souls that were in prison (that repented not), were not Angelic beings that had—had been brought down in the form of Angels, but it was the spirits of those angelic beings that fell before the foundation of the world, back there when the war went on in Heaven. And Satan and—and the dragon fought, and then…or Michael and—and the—the dragon fought (and Lucifer). And Lucifer was cast out with all of his children (all of the angels that he had deceived), and those angels come to the earth and was subject then to become human. And when they did, that’s when “the sons of God saw the daughters of man was fair, and took unto them wives.”
636 They are sons of God. Every man that’s borned in this earth is a son of God. Regardless of whether he’s sinner or what he is, he’s a son of God. Created in the image of God for the praises of God, he’s created that way. But God in the beginning knew who would receive Him and who would not receive Him. Therefore He could predestinate, or, not predestinate, but by foreknowledge He could tell who would be saved and who wouldn’t be saved, for He knew which person would take up which spirit.
637 And those spirits that come from the Throne of God, and stands before the Throne of God, and lived…and billions and billions and aeons of time before the world ever begin, in the Presence of God, do you think they don’t know something about worship? And they come down and get right into man, and they worship God! Absolutely, they worship God; and they have a knowledge of God, and they’re smart, and shrewd, and educated, always. But God rejected them from the beginning!
638 So therefore, friend, membership of a church, or—or knowledge of some theology or something, doesn’t have one thing to do with It. It’s got to be the Blood of Jesus Christ and a new birth that joins you to Him as one person. There you are.
639 God, in the beginning when He knowed that… Men and women was made one, not two, they were made one. They were separated, one put in flesh and one in a theophany. He knew that. So in order to prove that to you: when God made the woman, He never took some dust and made her like He did the man; He took a rib out of the side of Adam ([JBP] that is, He didn’t have to get more dirt from the earth, but from Adam himself, from which Adam was created), and she become a by-product of a man (because she’s part of him). You get It now? See? There you are.
640 There are the angels. And God and the spirit that’s joined with God is one Spirit. That’s right. Now, the Spirit of God that dwells in the Church, is the Spirit that come from Heaven, that God knew before the foundation of the world, that rejected the devil’s lie. And that spirit had to take a body of flesh to be…to take his testings. He had to come flesh like these others did, and all of them put on the equal yoke. And God, by the beginning, know the spirits that would, and which would not. There you are. That devil is so wise he’d just deceive the very elect, if possible. ([JBP] but it is not possible).
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He goes on to say [“THOSE WHO HAVE FAITH FOR THE PRESERVATION OF THE SOUL”]:
[WSS] (…) Paul knew that mystery; and he wanted and prayed to God that all believers in Christ would know the mystery of God the Father, and of Christ.
Therein lie all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge; for God through Christ created the Heavens and the Earth.
What scientist, or what nation with its team of scientists can create a planet or a solar system or a galaxy? None.
Therefore, the wisdom and knowledge with which all those galaxies were created and the invisible world and the visible world were created, that is truly science!, that is knowledge!, that is wisdom! It is the wisdom of God, the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth.
And all that knowledge and wisdom of God was expressed through Christ; and continues to be expressed through Christ.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in the same message we were reading of “GOD’S POWER TO TRANSFORM,” it tells us on page 13, it says [P. 10]:
71 Now we find that this deformer [WSS] «Satan» has also had the same amount of time, to deform, as God had to transform. Now he planted his seed, or, never planted his seed, he… in the garden of Eden. Since that time [WSS] «Satan», he has had six thousand years of deforming the Seed of God, the Word of God; to deform It, make It something different; when he… the first time that Eve listened to him, and got herself just one little phrase.
72 Remember, first Satan quoted that Scripture just as clear as it could be, “God has said that, ‘Ye shall not eat of every tree in the garden of Eden’?” See? “You shall not eat of every tree?”
73 And remember now, Eve said, “Yes, we may eat of every tree; but the tree that’s in the midst of the garden, we mustn’t even touch it.” Now watch him, in his message, twist that Word just a little bit. In saying…Eve said, “For God said, that, if we do this, that day we ‘die.’”
74 He said, “Oh, surely you will not die.” See, he was a—a man, he said, “You—you—you do this now. And, you—you are—you are kind of a ignorant people. You, really, you don’t know all things. But if you would only partake of this, then you would have wisdom, you would have knowledge. You would know right from wrong and be like gods, you, if you would only partake of this wisdom that I have. I know, but you don’t.”
75 Which, it’s all right to have wisdom. But if the wisdom is contrary, if the wisdom isn’t correct wisdom from God, Divine wisdom, and becomes natural wisdom; I don’t care how much science we have, and what-more, or education, it’s of the devil. I’ll prove it to you, the Lord willing, in a few minutes. It’s of the devil.
76 Civilization is of the devil ([JBP] he writes): [WSS] «wisdom, education, civilization». I just got through preaching on that. All culture in the earth, all powers of science, and everything, is of the devil. It’s his gospel he preached, of knowledge, in the garden of Eden. And he has took that knowledge, perverted knowledge, contrary to the Word and will and plan of God. And now he has had six thousand years to do just exactly what God did ([JBP] he wrote): [WSS] «Masterpiece», only in a perverted way, and took the same amount of time to bring his own Eden in. Now he has got an Eden here on earth, and it’s filled with wisdom, knowledge. That was his gospel at the beginning, knowledge, wisdom, science. Never did God ever cater to such. And I—I want you to watch a minute. He did this, and because that he was a man of worldly wisdom.
77 Now, it’s hard to say this. It’s—it’s very hard, because speaking to people who feel the same way I do, and the way I have been for many years. But since the opening of those Seven Seals, of them Angels just behind the mountain yonder, This has become a new Book. It’s the things that’s been hid, is being revealed as God promised in Revelation 10, He would do it. And we are the privileged people that God has chosen, of the earth, that we might see and understand these things; which is not some mythical, fleshly mind of a person trying to make it up. It’s the Word of God made manifest, proven, that It’s right. Proven, not by science; but by God, that It’s right. God, as I have said before in a message, God doesn’t need anyone to interpret His Word. He is His Own Interpreter. He says it’ll happen, and it happens. That is, He—He confirms it, that interprets it.
LADIES EARNERS OF THE BLESSINGS AND INSTRUMENTS OF SALVATION IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD
Dr. William Soto Santiago
February 5, 2009
He has been preparing His Cabinet in the spiritual sphere of His Kingdom, in which it has been from the Day of Pentecost until now; and when the physical sphere comes, what will it be? The materialization of the spiritual sphere.
Like the appearance of Adam and Eve on Earth, what was it? The materialization of Adam and Eve, the man and woman. Adam, who was male and female in the spiritual sphere, that is, in the sixth dimension; and then, when he is placed on Earth physically, he is male and female; and from there God took Eve (from Adam), and they lived on Earth.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] Now let’s see here a few places; for example, in the message “SOULS THAT ARE IN PRISON NOW,”7 on page 5 and 6, it says:
 He is a—a Spirit Being.
40 Then there was no man to till the soil, and then God formed man out of the dust of the earth.
41 Then He taken from his side, a by-product, a rib; and, from that, separated this man which had a dual nature, which was both ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «2 theophanies» feminish and masculine. And He taken [WSS] «theophany» the feminish out, ’cause it was love, and He placed it into a person called Eve, that Adam called Eve, which was his wife. That’s where his love, natural, phileo love, held to his wife. That’s the way a man should be today, and her back to her husband. The man [WSS] «theophany», the masculine; the woman, the feminish.
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «The creation of man in theophany, and then he received a body of flesh».
42 And then, see, after He done made man in His Own image, “created He them, male and female,” there was no man to till the soil. And He put him in the dust of the earth, and therefore he become… he was that man. This human man was mammal, see, he was animal; but He put this spirit of God, a life, into him, and made him on the basis that he could make a choice.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And also in the message “JEHOVAH-JIREH,”8 (April 2, ‘64) it tells us on page 27 of this volume (which there is “JEHOVAH-JIREH,” #1, #2 and #3). Page 27, it would in #1. It says:
118 What was Eve? Her and Adam were the same. They were called Adam. They were spirit. When He formed man, the first time, He made him in His Own image. And God is a Spirit. “In the image of God created He him, male and female created He them.” He was… and then still there was no man to till the soil. Then God formed man out of the dust of the earth and put this dual spirit into him, and that was the first Adam.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And we also see that, the Name, there is a dual form too: in His First Coming and in His Second Coming.
Also, in the message “THE SERPENT’S SEED,”9 on page 19, it says:
 Adam had done named all the creation, everything else, but he wasn’t nothing for himself. So, He made him a helpmate; took a rib from his side, closed up the gash, and made a helpmate to him. And man, in his spirit, was both man and woman.
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «in theophany: man and woman», and he draws a Star of David there.
114 And a woman is just a part of a man. And when a man takes to himself a wife, and if she is correctly his wife, a God-given wife, she’ll be just to him as part of him.
115 That’s the reason you have so many scruples in the marriage, is because you go out and see some girl with pretty brown eyes or blue eyes, or something like that, and some pretty figure, and you fall for her. First time she has her first baby, them teeth comes out, and she gets wrinkled and old, and then you want to kick her out. And some of you women find some little boy with his hair slicked down, and his mammy’s lard can half dumped on it, and curly. And it’ll all fall out; I know that by experience. But what happens? What is it? You fall for that.
116 You ought to pray, first, ’cause a woman is part of you.
[JBP] And further down it says [P. 19]:
119 Now notice. This man, when he was created, God separated his spirit. And He took a piece off of the man, his side, and made a woman out of it ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «man and woman: Adam and Eve». And then He took the feminish, dainty spirit of the man, and made a woman out of it. And He made the man masculine, burly.
120 And when you see a—a—a man that’s little… you know, manicuring, or whatever you call it, his fingernails ([JBP] like now, that they also paint them); and, you know, four on one side and five on the other, and—and a slicking his hair down; to hold his mouth open in front, and such stuff as that; one of these pretty boys. You just remember, sis, there is something wrong with that bird. There is something wrong. Better keep your eye on him.
121 And when you see a woman with a cigarette in the side of her mouth, with a pair of overalls on, and saying, “I’ll tell you, feller, what it is!” Brother, you watch that old gal. There is something wrong with her.
122 A woman, supposed to be a woman, and she is supposed to dress like a woman. When God made a man, He made him one thing, and He made a woman something else. And when God dresses a man, He dressed him one way, and the woman something else. And the Bible said, “It’s abomination for a woman to put on a garment that pertains to a man.”
123 And you women, putting on these little old pants and things, and wearing them out here, little old… What is it you call them, knickerbocker? ([JBP] Pants) What do they…? Oh, what is that stuff they…? No, no, it’s not shorts, it’s that other one, got the long legs in it. [Congregation says, “Pedal pushers.”—Ed.] Pedal pushers ([JBP] he says there), and overalls, dungarees.
Go in, said, “This is for the ladies.”
124 I said, “No, you’re mistaken. Ladies don’t wear them things. Women might, but ladies don’t.” That’s right.
125 The Bible said, “It’s an abomination for a woman to put on a garment… and for a man to put on a garment that pertains to a woman ([JBP] And now we even see them wearing skirts).”
126 And man is becoming more sissyfied, every day, and women is becoming more masculine. What’s the matter? We’re going to find out in a few minutes, by the Bible. Women ain’t women no more. I don’t mean you Christian women. I’m talking about the general run. They want to act like men; want to cut their hair like men; put their hand up on a bar, like that, and sing God Bless America, with a cigarette out of the corner of their mouth.
[JBP] And he goes on speaking of all of that in this message. All of that, of that message… that one of “THE SERPENT’S SEED.”
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And it also tells us here in the message “LEADERSHIP,”10 on page 23, it says:
153 Sometime in life we have to confront the thing just like this young man did, because you are a mortal being and you are given the—you are given the opportunity of choice. You have a choice. God made it so you can choose. If He put Adam and Eve on free moral agency so they could choose, and then they made the wrong choice, and, see, He can do no more to you than He did to them. He’s got to put you the same thing so you can choose or reject.
You have a choice. Let’s look at some of them:
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «Adam and Eve / Free will».
154 You have a choice, as a young man, whether you’re going to have an education or not. You have that choice. You can want to be “just not have it,” you can just refuse it.
155 You have a choice of your conduct. I’m going to hurt just a little bit here. See? You can go out and let your hair grow down and be a Beatle or some of these ignoramuses.
156 Or you women, you can look like a—a decent human being or you can be one of these weird creatures that we have out there, them blued eyes. And water-head haircuts and things, they’re completely against the Word of God, which is absolutely contrary; not even offer… couldn’t offer a prayer to be accepted. That’s the Truth. That’s exactly right. That’s what the Bible said.
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «long hair on men».
And notice, they can’t offer a prayer because it is not accepted, one that acts that way.
THE INCARNATION OF THE WORD
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Monday, November 20, 2000
After a certain time had passed, which is not clearly identified in the Scripture (we don’t know how many years passed), God didn’t find a suitable help for Adam from among the other creatures that were on Earth; and from Adam’s side (from Adam) He took out a rib and formed a female body for Adam, to be his help meet; and He placed the female spirit that was in Adam (because he had a female and male spirit), separated it and placed it in that female body that God formed to be Adam’s companion.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in the message “IT IS THE RISING OF THE SUN,”11 on page 19, it says:
121 Now, there you are, “If the Bridegroom Spirit dwells in the Bride!”
122 When God made His first bridegroom, He made the bridegroom first, and he was both man and woman, in spirit ([JBP] he writes): [WSS] «Adam and the masculine spirit. Eve and the feminine spirit»; formed him in the dust of the earth, to make him material. And notice when He made Eve, from Adam, He took not another piece of clay, He took from the same piece of clay; the same Word, for Adam was a spoken Word. See? He took from him ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «Adam = was a spoken word», and then taken the…He had masculine and feminish spirit. And He took the feminish spirit away from Adam, and placed it in Eve; so it’s still part of Adam’s spirit, it’s Adam’s flesh. Then, it was Adam’s spirit, the dynamic ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «the spirit of Adam = the dynamic», that quickened the mechanics of his body.
123 So the Bride must also be flesh of His flesh, and bone of His bone. Then how is this mortal flesh going to become His flesh? ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «glorified» We’ll get to it in a minute, see. How is it done? How? What is this great transformation? Notice.
Now if the Spirit of him (God) ([JBP] he is quoting a Scripture) that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
[JBP] And he writes: [WSS] «Adam had a masculine and feminine spirit».
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] He goes to say [“THE INCARNATION OF THE WORD”]:
[WSS] And after God performed that operation —see, He was the first surgeon, and also the first doctor, anesthesiologist—, then Adam woke up from the anesthesia He put him under… God knows how to anesthetize anyone, how to put anyone to sleep and how to do any operation, because He is the Designer and Creator of the human body; of the theophanic body as well.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And it tells us in the message “JEHOVAH-JIREH,”12 preached on March 12, 1961, it says on page 21:
54 When God made His first man in the garden of Eden, did you notice, He made him both male and female? He was a man made in God’s image, a Spirit. He put him in flesh, Genesis, the next chapter, after He already made him, male and female. And there still was no man to till the soil. So then He created man out of the dust of the earth, not in His image, but then God came down in the form of man by Jesus Christ, to redeem the man that fell from the image of the earth. And he was made in the image of the earth. O God, can’t you see what Gospel means? When God became man, so man became God; we’re sons and daughters of God.
55 Now, this first man, Adam, look at him. In spirit he was both feminish and masculine ([JBP] he writes): [WSS] «Masculine and feminine. Man and woman (female)». And then he was made flesh. And he had no helpmate. Then God… A woman is not in the original creation of God. She’s a by-product of the man. So to make them one, to show what He did, He opened up the side of Adam, and took a part of Adam’s flesh (so that they wouldn’t be separated, they’d be one), and took part of Adam’s spirit, part of Adam’s flesh, took the feminish spirit off of Adam and made an Eve.
And when you see a woman, the way some of our modern women, hair cuts like men, smoke like men, cuss like men…You see a woman that wants to be masculine, there’s a perversion there somewhere. And when you see a man sissified with a—look like a duck setting on the back of his head, and so forth like that, and wants to wear women’s clothes all the time, there’s something perverted there somewhere. God made men to be men, and women to be women. The Bible said…
56 One day I was speaking against women wearing shorts, and a woman said to me, “I don’t wear them.”
I said, “What’s that you got on?”
She said… What is them things? Pedal pushers, or ever what it was, like that.
I said… No, dungarees… I said, “It’s… That’s worse than ever. The Bible said it’s an abomination for a woman to put on a garment that pertains to a man.” That’s right.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] It goes on to say in this other message:
LADIES AND THEIR MISSION
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Thursday, July 4, 2002
San Luis Potosi, Mexico
Now, we can see that there are things that correspond to the feminine spirit to carry out and others to the masculine spirit; and that is why both have to be manifested in bodies: the feminine spirit has to be manifested in a feminine body, and the masculine spirit has to be manifested in a masculine body; so that each one carries out their functions according to the will of God.
And have your children, have your home, and love God and serve God, and teach your children to serve God, and raise them in the fear of the Lord; and have them well fed physically and also spiritually. And thus the family grows and the family that God created continues to multiply, the human being on this planet Earth; and thus the human race continues to exist.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the message “THE INVISIBLE UNION OF THE BRIDE OF CHRIST,”13 preached on November 25, 1965, Reverend William Branham tells us on page 34, it says:
206 Life is a sacred thing, to God, and it’s recorded in a book. God is the Author of life. Do you believe that? [Congregation says, “Amen.”—Ed.]
207 Our natural life here, we have, is just a perversion. It really should be the right life, to begin with, but it’s perverted by the natural birth ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «life is perverted by the natural birth». The first life, or your first union, you were joined in at birth, by nature, a natural act. A natural human being associated, man and woman together, associated together in sexual affair, which brought your first life here, and that’s associated with sin and death. How can you miss seeing the serpent’s seed?
208 When you see the woman, a by-product; not another female like her; made in that order, knowing that she could be deceived. God knowed. If He didn’t know the end from the beginning, then He wasn’t God. If He isn’t infinite, if He isn’t, if…He can’t be infinite without being omniscient, omnipresent, knowing all things, Eternal. So He knowed all things, and He had to make that woman.
209 The man didn’t have a wife. The wife and the man was the same thing. He had the feminish and masculine spirit in himself.
210 He had to separate, take a by-product, after the whole creation made ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «separate – masculine and feminine». No female created by God, in the original creation, can do a thing like that. She was made thus, to do it. He knowed she would do it. If He didn’t, He wasn’t God.
211 But, see, the attributes that’s in God had to be displayed. He—He was to be a Saviour. And to make everything perfect, the way He had it, then there could be nothing lost. Oh, don’t be children. Be men and women. We’re at the end road. Notice.
212 Now, it was nature, associated with death. Your first husband, that had rule over you, was your nature by natural birth. Natural, you love the world because you are the world, and part of the world. That right? [Congregation says, “Amen.”—Ed.] Your desires was, by nature, to love the world which you’re a part of [WSS] «your spirit». You’re a part of nature. You believe that? [“Amen.”] And that’s your natural thing.
[JBP] And he writes:
[WSS] «1st husband = 1st nature».
«2nd husband = 2nd nature».
213 That’s the reason you have to be born again. You have to separate; you have to die to that first husband. You can’t live with it. You just can’t say, “Well, I’ll divorce him, and hang him up here till occasion.” No, sir. No writing of divorcement! He dies. The nature of the world [WSS] «the spirit of the world» has to die. Every speck of him has to die. You have to be reunited, again, with another Nature [WSS] «theophanic spirit».
214 Your name of your first nature [WSS] «spirit of the world», was born, and put in a book of life. And all your deeds was wrote in it, too. Everything you done under that nature was put in a book, called the book of life ([JBP] Book of Memories, like last night – he told us yesterday in the message).
215 You notice, in Daniel, when he come to “the Ancient of Days, Whose hair was as white as wool. Ten thousand times ten thousands came with Him, to minister to Him; the—the Bride. And then the books were opened.” “And another Book was opened, which was the Book of Life.” See? There is saints already there, the Church, the Bride. “Another Book was opened, which was the Book of Life.”
[JBP] And he writes:
[WSS] «The name in the Book of Life – Of the 1st birth: through sex».
[WSS] «The name in the Lamb’s Book of Life = Of the 2nd birth: through the Word».
[JBP] And he also writes:
[WSS] «The new birth = to separate».
216 Now, you, but when you were separated from that union, by spiritual death: Your natural desire is to cut your hair. Your natural desire is to wear shorts, paint your face. Your natural desire is to be intellectual, smart man, know something better than the other. That’s what Eve wanted. That’s the very thing she wanted.
217 “Well, say! You little two bit, two-by-four preacher ([JBP] he writes): [WSS] «2 x 4», stand up there and tell me? I’ve got a Ph.D., LL.” That just makes you farther away from God, every time you add one thing. See? See? That’s right. It’s true. See?
218 That’s what Eve took. She was pregnated with that kind of a pregnation. That’s what the church is today, by Bible schools and intellectuals. And, look, every one disagreeing with the other, a big mess just exactly what the Bible said, “Babylon.”
219 The Bride knows where She stands. She is very few. There won’t be many saved; just a very, very, very few ([JBP] brother Branham says). You say, “Well, there, said, ‘thousands.’” Yes. But they’ve come up through the two thousand years, too, on every age where It come out.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] In the message “THE HELP MEET FOR MAN,” preached on February 23 in Monterrey, Mexico it says:
THE HELP MEET FOR MAN
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Saturday, February 23, 2002
Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico
And now, people don’t realize that Christ and His Church are one flesh, the Spirit of Christ is in His Church.
Now, there is a great mystery that still can’t be made openly known to the public, because this would reveal a very great mystery that shouldn’t be interrupted, but someday you will know it, it has to do with the mystery of Christ and His Church…
[JBP] “THE MYSTERY OF THE CHURCH” is tomorrow’s topic. That is why these days it is going along that line, and we will see how God is showing us all this. Because he always said, [WSS] “Someday… someday…,” and this is the day. God is helping us and will continue to help us.
[WSS] …it has to do with the mystery of Christ and His Church, just as the mystery of Adam in his help meet; as it was… the spirit that was in Adam was then placed in Eve, the feminine spirit.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] That is why in the message “IT IS THE RISING OF THE SUN,” he says on page 35 [P. 30]:
 When God looked down upon the body ([JBP] upon the body of Jesus)…
241 The Spirit left Him, in the Garden of Gethsemane. He had to die, a man. Remember, friends, He didn’t have to do that. That was God. God anointed that flesh, which was human flesh. And He didn’t… If He’d a went up there, as God, He’d have never died that kind of death; can’t kill God. But He didn’t have to do it.
242 But, remember, He went there with you in Him. See, God had never separated the Bride from the Groom, yet. So when God looked down upon the body of Christ ([JBP] that is, when He looked to the Cross), He saw both male and female. It was all redeemed in that one body. ([JBP] and he writes): [WSS] «and today His Church in her body of human flesh». See? They are one, same, same Word. The same Word, spoke of the Groom, speaks of the Bride.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And let’s see, because in the book of Quotations that excerpt is… (this message was preached April 18, 65) Here: page 146, paragraph 1299.14 It says:
1299 – “ God had never separated the Bride from the Groom, yet. So when God looked down upon the body of Christ, He saw both male and female.”
[JBP] And there he writes: [WSS] «Church» at the top of [WMB] “female.” In other words, he saw us, who are part of the Church.
1299 – “ He saw both male and female. It was all redeemed in that one body. See? They are one, same, same Word. The same Word, spoke of the Groom, speaks of the Bride.”
[JBP] And writes:
[WSS] «[2nd Adam] Christ – [2nd Eve] the Bride».
[WSS] «Christ and the Bride = are One — man and woman».
[JBP] And there are other quotes that we can read tomorrow in tomorrow’s topic.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And in the message of “QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS,”15 preached on August 30, 1964 (this was in the morning), he says (page 27):
112 Now, you understand? We are not… We are Messiahettes, but not that Jesus. He is our Father; we’re just anointed with His Spirit, and that’s the reason His Life… And that gets people. See, if you don’t set and think it through, it gets people to believe, “Well, this guy would be the Messiah.” Sure he is.
“This one over here could be.” They both are. See? “Well, how can there be two of them?” There’s thousands of them. See?
113 But you see, His Life is separated on the Day of Pentecost. When that Pillar of Fire came down, It separated like tongues and set upon each of them, God dividing Himself among His people, because the Church and Christ is One, just as the husband and wife is one.
YOUTH SHINING LIKE THE SUN IN THE KINGDOM OF THEIR FATHER
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Saturday, March 2, 2002
Villahermosa, Tabasco, Mexico
Do you remember when Reverend William Branham was in Paradise?16 And he was already 50… around 52 years old (right, Miguel?) He was 50 to 54, around there. And he says, “Is this a dream I’m having, or is this a vision?, or is this something real?” And he says he took a finger there, he bit it, and he felt it; so he is already realizing that he is experiencing something real.
Then he touches his head and finds he has all the hair, he realizes he is in a young body with hair. And he looked from Paradise down and saw his body of flesh on the bed, he is realizing he is in the angelic body, and he realizes he has all the hair.
That is why he would always say to his wife, when she would say, “You are losing your hair.” He would say, “I haven’t lost a single one!” And how is a person who is missing all his hair up there going to say he hasn’t lost a hair? For Christ said, “Not a hair of your head shall perish.”17 Therefore, we don’t lose even one!; God already predestined how many hairs you would have on your head.
Now, in this body we can lose them all, and even not have lost one; because when we are in the new body we will have all the hairs that God predestined for each one of us. And even in the angelic body, notice, you have hair too; and in the angelic body all the hairs are there, all the hairs that God predestined for the person.
Then, when he saw a group of sisters coming with their long hair… See? Sisters shouldn’t cut their hair. In Paradise, notice, the ones in Paradise show us that. And they come with hair…
([JBP] Now, there are some who have their condition, for which they can’t have it, because of certain medical conditions; and that, well, according to what the doctor tells them they have to do, because it is a health issue).
[WSS] And they come with hair of different colors, not because they are painted, but because it is the color that God predestined for each person.
The design already comes in the angelic body; and then in the physical body it materializes, in the body that we will use to walk around the planet and throughout the universe, because it is an interdimensional body.
Now, when they arrive they say to him, “Our precious brother.” They greet him, they hug him and they leave; and so it was also with his wife Hope. He thought, “Here she comes”18 ([JBP] that is, Brother William says) he recognized her. Why? Because when she died she was about 23 years old or so, about 23 years old; and when she appears there in Paradise, well, she is about that age; because in Paradise, our brother Branham says that they were about 18 to 21 years old the people that were there.
And when she greets him, he thought, “She is going to say to me: ‘Husband,’” or something like that. And when she greets him and hugs him she says, “My precious brother Branham.” For in Heaven they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but shall be as the angels of God.
But every man will have his companion, who will accompany him during the Millennial Kingdom and for all eternity; for thus will the two spirits be together, though in two bodies.
If man, the sons and daughters of God, the sons of God, were not to have a companion in the Millennial Kingdom, then they would have to have in the same body the two spirits. But, notice, God made this separation when He formed a companion for Adam, and placed the female spirit in that companion.
So notice, that is why also in the Millennial Kingdom each man will have his companion: the one that God predestined for him since before the foundation of the world.
[Rev. Jose B. Perez] And there are other places that we can continue to find (and we will be looking for) everything that he speaks of this great mystery, of this dual form that God placed there in Adam, which was those two theophanies, those two spirits (female and male, or male and female), and then He made that separation; the same that He did there on the Day of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit came down, distributed the Holy Spirit in the way that it was.
And when he says he saw both, there is a part where he says that what He sent to the Church was the female Spirit, that is, the Holy Spirit. He speaks… I think that tomorrow we can read it also, so that… (today we have already gone beyond the time we had). But all this is Teaching for each one of us, and thus to understand that great mystery of those spirits or that feminine spirit that was in Adam being separated and placed in a woman’s body.
That is why [WSS] “we have to reflect (as he said there at the end) everything that is there in the sixth dimension.”
May God help us —and will continue to help us— to be prepared; because that is what we desire: to be prepared to be soon adopted.
Everything that is spoken is for our benefit, for correction… Because [WMB] “Church is a place where correction.”19 says brother Branham in some places. In other words, we come to learn and to correct the things that we are doing wrong. We correct them, and God continues to help us to remain faithful, to do His perfect will, and to walk in the perfect will of God, which is a requirement for transformation.
God bless you, God keep you; and thank you for coming on this occasion to share these moments of fellowship, which are of great help and spiritual growth for all of us.
With us is Reverend William Perez, so we can conclude with a praise (that our brother Felix will sing for us), and then we will be dismissed in prayer. And may God keep you and take care of you to the places where you will be today.
And tomorrow let us be here early, to glorify His Name through the praises (in the prelude); always arrive early to pray and meditate to God; and then to be in the part of: the reading of the Bible, the prayer, the praises and to listen to the Word; then a song and then to be dismissed in prayer. That has been the order from the beginning, which our brother William told us to do. So we always follow as he has told us.
May God bless you and keep you all.
Thank you very much.
