THE ANGEL OF JESUS AND HIS MISSION ON EARTH

Dr. William Soto Santiago

Sunday, January 1, 1989

Cayey, Puerto Rico

In the seven ages of the gentile Church there were Seven Thunders, because a Thunder is the Voice of God speaking; and in the seven ages of the gentile Church there were Seven Thunders speaking through each of the messengers, angel messengers of the seven ages or seven stages of the gentile Church.

And just as in each one of the messengers God thundered, spoke, in the Age of the Cornerstone God speaks in a consecutive way; and this way of God speaking in a consecutive way in the Age of the Cornerstone is nothing less than the Seven Thunders of Revelation, chapter 10, making known the revelation, the manifestation of the Lord Jesus Christ in His Second Coming, with His Angels, in the Age of the Cornerstone. And one can see and understand the Second Coming of the Lord, the Son of Man with His Angels by only being in the Age of the Cornerstone, and one can hear and understand the Great Voice of Trumpet or Last Trumpet, or Trumpet of the Year of Jubilee, or the Seven Thunders of Revelation.

That is the mission of the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ: To speak the Message that corresponds to our time.

The Seven Thunders utter their voices in the Second Coming of the Lord through His Angel Messenger to all the elect. It is the Lord Jesus Christ through His Angel Messenger speaking to His people and revealing to them the mystery for which there was silence in Heaven for half an hour: Revealing to them the Seventh Seal, the Second Coming of the Lord with His Angels calling the elect with a Great Voice of Trumpet.

There we can see the Coming of the Lord with His Angels and the mission of the Lord with His Angels through His Angel Messenger: He comes as a blessing for all the elect; He comes to call and gather all the elect, and give them the faith to be transformed and to be raptured.

The faith for the transformation and rapture is given to each of the elect through the Seven Thunders of Revelation, chapter 10, which utter their voices here on Earth through the Angel Messenger of the Lord Jesus Christ; his Message is the Message of the Seven Thunders of Revelation. That is his ministry, that is his mission here on Earth, for the Lord Jesus Christ to produce the resurrection of the dead and the transformation of the living.

For that reason, Revelation, chapter 19 and verse 11 to 16: a Rider riding on a snow white horse, and his name is the Word of God; and He has a name written on His thigh and on His garment, which1 [is King of kings and Lord of lords. And out of His mouth proceedeth a sharp two-edged sword, to smite the nations therewith].

[That sharp Sword is the Word], the Message of the Seven apocalyptic Thunders, the Message of the Great Voice of Trumpet, which proceeds from the mouth of the Lord Jesus Christ; and the mouth of the Lord has always been His prophets.

The Word will be coming out from the mouth of the Lord, from the mouth of the Angel Messenger of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Message of the Great Voice of Trumpet, the two-edged Sword; the Sword that in this end time will carry out the Work promised for the blessing of the elect, and to smite the kingdom of the gentiles to make way for the Millennial Kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ; that two-edged Sword, that Third Pull, which is for the Bride, the elect, for the children of God in the Age of the Cornerstone; and it is also for the Church, the foolish virgins, the Church that couldn’t see the Second Coming of the Son of Man with His Angels in the Age of the Cornerstone. But that two-edged Sword will have a work to carry out with the Church (that is, the foolish virgins), and it will also have a work to carry with the lost. It is for the Bride, for the Church and for the lost; for the lost, who no longer have a chance.

The Bride will see that Sword coming from the mouth of the Lord, from the mouth of His Angel Messenger, in the fulfillment of the Second Coming of the Lord, of the Son of Man with His Angels, riding on a snow white horse, riding upon the Message of the pure Word: the Message of the Great Voice of Trumpet, the Message of the Last Trumpet, the Message of the seven thunders of Revelation.

That is why it was promised by the seventh messenger, Elijah in his fourth manifestation: “When our Lord appears on Earth, He will come riding on a horse as white as snow, and He will be completely Emmanuel —the Word of God incarnated in a man.”

The Word of God incarnate in His Angel Messenger and with the sharp Sword coming out of His mouth, will be the Second Coming of the Son of Man with His Angels; it will be the Lord Jesus Christ riding on a horse white as snow, and from coming out of His mouth a sharp two-edged Sword, and His eyes as a flame of fire; and His Name is the Word of God, the Word incarnate. And on His garment and on His thigh this name: King of kings and Lord of lords; for He comes in His Second Coming as the Lion of the tribe of Judah, as the King of kings and Lord of lords, with the little Book that He opened in Heaven, opened in His hand and given to His Angel Messenger to prophesy again over many peoples, nations and tongues.

It is the Lord Jesus Christ manifested, revealed, revealing Himself through His Angel Messenger to His people, to His elect; and then to the Church, to the foolish ones; and then to the lost ones; in the Third Pull, in the stage of the Word coming out of His mouth: coming out from His Angel Messenger.

 

BOOK OF THE SEALS

The Sixth Seal – Page 423-424

Rev. William M. Branham

260 Now, Jacob, as he come up now, the first thing you know, he got a longing to go (where?) back to the homeland.

261 Oh, that’s exactly what Israel has done! That’s—that’s… That’s Israel. Jacob is Israel. He just had his name changed, you know. See? And he’s…

262 He got out there, and he got all the money he had, and he could get, and took it any way he could, from his kinsfolks or anybody else. So, cheating, stealing, lying, any way he could get it, he got it. See? He did.

263 And then when he starts back to home, he got to get a homesick feeling in his heart. But as he started back, on his road going back, he met God, then his name was changed. See? But, in this time, he was so worried, because he was afraid Esau was coming after him. See?

264 And—and watch, watch the money, the money proposition. Just like the Jew will try making this covenant with—with Rome, see, in their money proposition. Notice it. That Esau didn’t need his money; neither does Rome. She’s got the wealth of the world in her hand. See? But it didn’t work.

265 But we find out now, that Israel, in that time of trouble, when he was Jacob, he wrestled with the… that got a hold of Something that was real. There was a Man come down. Jacob got his arms around Him, and he stayed there. And the—and the—the Fellow said, “I must be going now. It’s coming daylight.” Oh, that breaking-of-the-day! See? It was fixing to come day.

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

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

268 That’s just before the Tribulation period, see, (oh how wonderful) also, “Jacob’s trouble.”

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

The seed of discrepancy

Phoenix, AZ, 1-18-65

Rev. William M. Branham

1260 – “Notice in verse 41, the two also very close, so close in the last days till He didn’t do… He could not depend on some certain church to separate them, say, the Methodist or the Baptist, or the Pentecostals, to separate them. He said, ‘He sends His angels to separate them.’ An angel is coming to bring the separation, the segregation between the right and the wrong. And no one can do that but the Angel of the Lord. He’s the One that is going to tell which is right and which is wrong. God said He will send His angels at the last times. Not angels down through here, but angels at the last time, and would gather together. We know that this is the coming harvest time now. Now, an angel is actually interpreted a ‘messenger.’ And we see that there is seven angels of the seven churches, and now… no, through the church ages.”

402 And at the same time that this devil falls out of Heaven and becomes incarnate in a man, the Holy Spirit goes up and comes down in carnate men. Amen. Oh, my! What a time!

 

THE WORK OF THE SEVENTH SEAL ON ALL DIMENSIONS – Part II

Time of redemption

Look, here it says, page 45 of the book of Quotations, paragraph 384 says: “And Jesus comes from Heaven with ten thousands times ten thousands of His Saints (What is he talking about there? Of the Resurrection), and the Bible says that ‘the Heavens was empty for the space of a half hour.’”

Well, there we find things that are already about to happen, we see that all that has to be fulfilled according to the promise; and the promise is true, the promise is real. All this is coming to the time of its fulfillment, and it will be that way.

Many people think that God is going to send literal angels with shovels and picks to go to the tombs and open the graves, and bring out the departed saints; but the thing is simpler than that. The saints come with the Lord. And the Lord comes according to His promise. So, then, page 61 of the book “Questions and Answers No. 3,” preached in 1964, August 30, says:

“‘And then shall he send his angels, and… gather together his elect from the four winds, and shall… and the utmost parts of the earth to be… and to the utmost parts of heaven. …utmost parts of the earth to the uttermost parts of heaven.’

That’s talking of the resurrection, the translation, going up. He’ll send forth His angels to gather. Did you ever think what the angels are? Huh? Messengers. He’ll gather them together, congregate them together (see?), bringing them, bind them together from the utmost parts of the earth to the utmost parts of Heaven, the Word that was, been made manifest on earth (And what is the Word that was and has been manifested on Earth? The Second Coming of the Lord, the Seventh Seal). See? Get it? The Word’s been spoken; here It’s manifested. See? All right.”

Now, you can see that all the things that are going to happen in the resurrection, will be things that the chosen group will know beforehand, just as the chosen group of the time of the Lord in His First Coming knew the things that would happen, although they didn’t understand them, but they knew them; but when they were fulfilled, then the Lord opened their understanding, and they understood the things of which the Lord had been speaking to them before they died; then they understood all those things correctly.

Well, surely there will be things that will be spoken and there will be things that we will understand, but there will also be things that we will not understand for the time being; but when they are fully fulfilled, then we will understand them. So what we don’t understand now, we will understand later. What we don’t understand now, we will understand when we see the resurrected saints coming with the Lord in glory. Then, what can’t be explained to us now in a more detailed way, will be explained to us later, in a more detailed way.

Remember that after the Lord was resurrected and went to the sixth dimension, and brought those who were in Paradise, He then appeared and was with His disciples, and opened their understanding so that they would understand all those things of which He had spoken to them first, and so that they would understand all the things that the prophets had spoken.
