TITLE: THE SPIRITUAL AWAKENING OF THE LAST DAY, 

OF THE CHURCH OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST

Dr. William Soto Santiago

Friday, February 19, 1999

Trujillo, La Libertad, Peru

Acts 3:18-23

18 But those things, which God before had shewed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he hath so fulfilled.

19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.

20 And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you:

21 Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.

22 For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.

23 And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.

Speak to this Mountain

San Jose, CA., 11-23-59

Rev. William M. Branham

“I believe that the church of the living God is moving into a sphere now that’s going to shake the whole world. / Oh, it’s going to come to pass pretty soon. I’m looking for it to happen in this meeting. I’m wanting it to happen now, that that anointing will strike the whole church of the living God, and she’ll rise to her feet like a mighty marching army. The sick will be healed by a word; the blind will see; the deaf will hear; the dead will be raised up; and the power of God will shake the world with the church of the living God. We’re in the process of it now. I believe it’s soon coming to pass. / And just remember, just as I told you about—from the discernment, taking the hand, to the secrets of the heart, how them things is fulfilled every time, so has this happened just exactly the way it said it would be. And it’s just exactly with the Scriptures. As it was proved to you about knowing the secret of the heart, how that Jesus looked upon the multitudes, and discerned, and could tell the people that touched His garment, and so forth, how that that rain, latter rain, former rain and latter would be together.”

THE RESTORATION OF ALL THINGS

(Minister’s Meeting)

Dr. William Soto Santiago

Saturday, November 25th, 2006

Osasco, São Paulo, Brazil

We are in the time for the restoration of all things; that is why I am waiting for my transformation, I am waiting for my restoration to physical eternal life, which will be the adoption, the redemption of the body, as Saint Paul says in Romans, chapter 8, verses 19 to 23.

Therefore, I am waiting for my transformation, the dead in Christ are waiting for the resurrection in eternal bodies, I am waiting for my transformation. Saint Paul says that those who will be alive will be transformed without seeing death. And who will those people be? He is speaking of the elect of the Last Day, who will be in the stage of the restoration of all things.

That stage and to that stage is the Vision of the Tent linked, of which the Reverend William Branham says that it will be the Third Pull; and what we saw in part manifested in him, will be manifested in all its fullness.

GOD BLESS OUR GOALS FOR THE GREAT TENT CATHEDRAL

Dr. William Soto Santiago

(Via telephone from Puerto Rico to São Paulo, Brazil)

Therefore, the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ in this final stage of the Cornerstone, which it will go up to…, just as it went up from one age to another, and went up in the three previous stages: it went up from the Lutheran age to the Wesleyan age, and from the Wesleyan age it went up to the Pentecostal age, after the Pentecostal age it goes up to the Age of the Cornerstone; age for the restoration of all things; for the restoration, above all, of the sons and daughters of God unto eternal physical life, to obtain the adoption, which will be the redemption of the body, the transformation of the living, to have eternal, immortal and glorified bodies, and the resurrection of the dead believers in Christ in eternal, immortal, young and glorified bodies, as the glorified body of our Lord Jesus Christ our Savior.

“But watch, when the spiritual Bride, when She begins to have a revival, when She begins to come back and line Herself up with the Word of God. Watch then again, you see, how that the Scriptures, at that time, there’ll be a Message sweep out to catch that Bride, catch that Woman, Elect.”

“Why, me an old man, suffered all my life, why did He heal me now? I believe I’ll ride this trail again, I got to bring a Message! And I say to my Father, tonight, (as Junior seen in a—a dream the other night of the wings of this Dove, moving in these windows here), Lord, Your servant’s reporting for service. Amen, I’m ready!”

Rev. William M. Branham

“And Elijah was not… That wasn’t Elijah; That was the Spirit of God on Elijah; Elijah was just a man. Now, we’ve had Elijahs, and Elijah’s coats, and Elijah’s mantles, and Elijah’s everything. But the Elijah of this day is the Lord Jesus Christ. He is to come according to Matthew the seventeen-… Luke 17:30, is, the Son of man is to reveal Himself among His people. Not a man, God! But it’ll come through a prophet. Now, He never had two major prophets at the same time, never, in the world.”

THE TIME OF ANGUISH AND LIBERATION

Dr. William Soto Santiago

Sunday, December 26, 1999 (Second activity)

Cayey, Puerto Rico

Now, we can see that by this time God’s elect will be going through a stage of squeeze. Also the fatuous or foolish virgins will go through that stage of squeeze, and then they will enter a full persecution during the great tribulation. When the elect go to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, the foolish virgins will be left here to be purified during the great tribulation, and the 144,000 Hebrews as well.

Under that full manifestation of God, it will be that the 144,000 Hebrews will awaken. God will awaken them, and they will say: “This is what we are waiting for.”

And now, we will have that blessing from God in this end time.

THE MIRACULOUS CATCH

Dr. William Soto Santiago

Thursday, January 30, 1997

Santa Fe de Bogota, Colombia

If you look at the Tent Vision, our brother Branham was over the congregation that was present there. He was not sitting or standing with his feet on the ground or in cement, but he was in the air looking from where the congregation is to the pulpit. And he saw on the left hand of him a little place, where great things were happening there; but if he had been in the pulpit, he would have been on his right hand; but that was his left hand, because he was there, looking from there to here; but that was the right hand of the one who had the ministry of preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom and the ministry with which the revival of the Last Day would come.

And the revival or awakening of the Last Day is promised to be carried out through the Seven Thunders of Revelation, chapter 10. It says that the Thunders will bring a revival to the Bride, the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. And the Thunders pertain to the Age of the Cornerstone and Dispensation of the Kingdom, to sound under the preaching of the Gospel of the Kingdom.

And what do the Thunders contain? What revelation do the Thunders bring to us for the Last Day? Well, it brings the revelation of the Second Coming of Christ in the preaching of the Gospel of the Kingdom. Just as the preaching of the Message of the Gospel of Grace brings the revelation of the First Coming of Christ and His Work of Redemption on Calvary’s Cross.

Now we can see how the catch of the Last Day will come, how this revival promised for the Last Day will come, for the territory pertaining to that stage of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ; and from there it will spread to the whole world.

Christ Is The Mystery Of God Revealed

Jeffersonville, IN., 7-28-63

Rev. William M. Branham

“And that’s what I want to speak on to the Church this morning, the hidden mystery of God that He had in His mind before the world ever began, and how that it’s unfolded itself right down to this present hour that we’re living. See? Then you will understand clearly then, you see, on, I believe, what is being done. God’s great mystery, of how, it’s a secret. He kept it a secret. Nobody knowed nothing about it. Even the Angels didn’t understand it. See, He didn’t reveal it. That’s the reason, under our seventh mystery, when the seventh seal was opened, there was silence. Jesus, when He was on earth, they wanted to know when He would come. He said, “It’s not…Even the Son Himself don’t know when it’s going to happen.” See, God has this all to Himself. It’s a secret. And that’s the reason there was silence in Heaven for a space of a half hour, and seven thunders utter their voices, and John was even forbidden to write it, see, the Coming of the Lord. That’s one thing He hasn’t revealed yet, of how He will come, and when He will come. It’s a good thing that He doesn’t. No. He has showed or revealed it in every type that’s in the Bible. Therefore, the entire Bible is the revelation of God’s mystery in Christ. Hum! The entire Bible is an expression of one goal that God had, one purpose He wanted to achieve in the entire Bible. And all the acts of the—of the believers in the Bible has been in type, an expressing what God’s great goal is, and now in this last day He has revealed it and shows it.”

Taking Sides With Jesus

Jeffersonville, IN., 6-1-62

Rev. William M. Branham

“I’ve waited, I have longed, I have been under anticipations and believed that some great one was coming some day, or maybe the great prophet that I speak will come, of the Elisha. I’ve always believed and thought, maybe, that maybe I’d live to see the day that when I could change, when I’d see that person rise on the scene, then I could take my little church and say, ‘Brethren, this is the man we have looked for. This man, he is the one.’ I’ve waited for that. And if actually that has passed, then I’m looking to say, from up here, ‘Brethren, this is the One,’ coming from here, see. And I—I want to see the church kept up like that.”

“We’ll be looking for that great one to rise. He might come in my day, he might come in the younger day, I don’t know. He might be right among us now, we can’t tell. The Holy Spirit is here to lead us till that time, then when this leader will take us over he’ll still be anointed of the Holy Ghost; the—the Elijah will, of course, that will come.”

Rev. William M. Branham

77 Now, the—the 8th chapter only reveals the scene of the—scene of the Seventh Seal, where nothing else is revealed, now, nothing. Is not revealed in the Seventh Seal… now, has nothing to do with the 7th chapter of—of Revelation. Its revealing, of the Seventh Seal, is perfectly mute. And if I only had time… I’ll try a few places, to show you.

78 All the way back, from Genesis, this Seventh chap-… or this Seventh Seal is—is—is spoke of. From the very beginning, in Genesis, this Seventh Se-…

79 These Seals moved right up. Couldn’t you remember, this morning, bringing these things up? And watch, tonight, bringing them up. And you find out, when it gets to that Seventh Seal, she cuts off.

“And there’s them two witnesses. And when they tormented the church, or the world, by their preaching; and receiving back the Jews, and bringing them back to repentance, bringing them back to believe on… When they see Jesus coming for the Bride, they’ll say,’Lo, this is our God Who we waited on. That’s Him!’ But He’s not coming for them; He come for His Bride. And His Bride…”

WHAT’S BEYOND THE SEVEN CHURCH AGES

Dr. William Soto Santiago

Friday, June 25, 2004

San José de los Campos, Brazil

When the Door of the gentiles is closed, that manifestation of Jesus Christ in all His fullness, Jesus Christ anointing His Church, will come; and then such great things will happen that they will shake mankind. That will give fulfillment to the Tent Vision that the Reverend William Branham had, that will give fulfillment to the prophecies for this end time.

The Hebrew people will see all these things happening after the seven Church ages and they will be awakened to reality, because Jesus Christ in Holy Spirit will be in the midst of His Church manifesting Himself in all His fullness; and then He will open the heart, understanding and spiritual eyes of the Hebrew people, and will call and gather 144,000 Hebrews, 12,000 from each tribe.

And then the God’s elect, of the Mystical Body of Christ, will be glorified, with eternal bodies; and that group of elect is the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, which will be anointed with the Spirit of God in all His fullness; and wonderful things will be happening in the midst of the Church of Jesus Christ.

Rev. William M. Branham

Now, when is the Gospel returning to the Jews? When the day of the Gentiles is finished. The Gospel is ready to go back to the Jews. Oh, if I could just tell you something that is about to happen right in this our day. This great thing that is about to happen will carry over to Revelation 11 and pick up those two witnesses, those two prophets, Moses and Elijah, turning the Gospel back to the Jews. We’re ready for it. Everything is in order. As the Jews brought the message to the Gentiles, even so the Gentiles will take it right back to the Jews, and the Rapture will come.

“Them hundred and forty-four thousand will stand yonder. And one of these days, some Divine, holy, anointed prophet of God will go over there with signs and wonders. Those Jews will say, ‘That’s what I’m looking for.’ Yes, sir. And God will baptize a hundred and forty-four thousand Jews. And the Rapture will come; the Gentile age will cease. The atomic bomb will explode and take the world. And the Gentile Church will be raptured up, to stand there in the Presence of God.”

“Remember, that, ‘They which are alive and remain shall not hinder those which are sleeping, for the Trump of God, that last Trumpet…’ The sixth one has just sounded. And that last Trumpet, like the last Seal, will be the Coming of the Lord. ‘It shall sound, and the dead in Christ shall rise first.’ Just resting till that time.”

The Way Of A True Prophet Of God

Jeffersonville, IN., 5-13-62

Rev. William M. Branham

“And as Elijah went down to Jordan one day, and struck it, with Elisha, and it parted back, and he crossed over. He come back with a double portion. And when we strike Jordan, with Christ, we got one portion, but when we return, we’re coming with two portions. We got Eternal Life, resurrection from sin, now, in righteousness with the Holy Ghost. And then on the return, with Christ, we come back with both physical resurrection, and we already got spiritual resurrection. We have a double portion of it.”

352 That’s the reason the—the… We’re in travail, Christ, to bring forth the Bride. Everything is travailing and groaning. See, there is something fixing to happen.

353 And this Sixth Plague lets her go. Brother, the earthquake bursts open, and the stars shake, volcanics will come forth, and the earth will renew itself. New lava will break forth from the center of the earth. And she’ll crumble, all around and around and around, when she spins out in yonder.

354 And I tell you, one morning when Jesus and His Bride comes back to the earth, there will be a paradise of God there. That, oh, my, them old warriors of the battle, walk down through there with their friends and loved ones. The anthems will fill the air, of an Angelic host. “Oh, it was well done, My good and faithful servant. Enter into the joys of the Lord, that’s been prepared for you, like you should have had back there before Eve started the ball a rolling in sin.” Amen!

THE CRUCIFIXION AND DEATH OF CHRIST

Dr. William Soto Santiago

Friday, April 6, 2012

Cayey, Puerto Rico

Someday the Coming of the Lord will become a reality, the Coming of the Lord will be opened to the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ; and that will be in the fulfillment of the Great Tent Cathedral, there is where that mystery of the Seventh Seal will be opened. And that is where there will be a great revival, a great awakening, a great manifestation of Christ in the midst of His Church, called that stage: the Third Pull.

For that time, if the beginning of the Tent Vision has not ended when it appears, at some point then Christ will finish His Work of Intercession in Heaven as High Priest, He will leave the Throne of Intercession, He will take the Title Deed and will open it in Heaven (in Heaven that Title Deed is the Book sealed with seven Seals); that is because Christ will have already completed His Church with all those written in Heaven, in the Lamb’s Book of Life.

And then He will do His Reclaiming Work: He will bring the dead in Christ which are in Paradise; He will pass through Paradise, He will bring them, He will resurrect them in eternal and glorified and young bodies; and He will transform the believers who are alive. And then we will be in the physical likeness of Christ, with glorified and eternal, immortal and young bodies for all eternity.
