TITLE: GOD IDENTIFIES HIS CHILDREN WITH HIS WORD

Dr. William Soto Santiago

Monday, May 3, 1999

(Third activity)

Tierra Blanca, Veracruz, Mexico

Source Scripture John 1:9-14

BOOK OF THE AGES

The Smyrnaean Age – Page 151-152

Rev. William M. Branham

According to Romans 4:16 we find that God has given a Sure Promise to ALL of Abraham’s seed, and Paul puts himself and all believers under that designation because he says, “…Abraham; who is the father of us ALL.” Then he goes on to not only narrow down his definition, but rather to finalize it for in Galatians 3 he identified the SEED (singular) with Jesus, and counted “the seed” children as children of promise, and promise as having to do with “election,” or “the choosing of God.” And that is exactly what we have been saying. These who are of the Royal Seed are the elect of God; are the predestinated, foreknown of God, and were in the mind of God and His thoughts. In very plain language the True Bride of Christ was in the mind of God eternally, though not expressed until each came forth in the designated, decreed season. As each member came forth it became EXPRESSED and took its place in the body. Thus this bride is the literal SPOKEN WORD SEED BRIDE. And though she is feminine in designation she is also called the “body of Christ.” It is very apparent that she ought to be called that for she was predestinated in Him, came from the same source, was eternal with Him, and is now manifesting God in a many-membered body whereas once God was manifested in ONE MEMBER, even our Lord Jesus Christ.

Perfect Faith

Jeffersonville, IN, 8-25-63

Rev. William M. Branham

974 – “‘And if you say to this mountain, ‘Be moved,’ and don’t doubt, see, in your heart, but believe that what you’ve said will come to pass, you can have what you said.’ That puts you back in the Word. Now, that’s not skim milk. See? It puts you back. I know it’s going to jumps right over top of you, maybe, see, because It can’t anchor. But real, genuine faith catches that, right now. / There’s Perfect Faith. No vision, ‘Just speak the Word,’ never saw the squirrel. He just said this Scripture, what it was, and ‘Speak it, and don’t doubt it; but what you say, it’ll be there.’ And I took God at His Word, and it was there. / And friend, as your pastor, that’s just as powerful as it was when Joshua stopped the sun; because the sun was already there, the elements was moving, and he stopped the movement. But this, He brought something there that wasn’t there, He created!”

Christ is the mystery of God revealed

Jeffersonville, IN, 7-28-63

Rev. William M. Branham

953 – “She is not hooked with nothing. But He was identified by God, being the body that God dwelt in; and the Church is identified by His Body, doing the same thing. She is His Body, the manifested Truth of His promised Word for the last days. And She, and She alone, stands by It. That’s why the devil is howling, these great organizations, to set up something to close Her up. They’ll never do it. She’ll be taken up, not closed up.”

Events are made clear by prophecy

Jeffersonville, IN, 8-1-65

Rev. William M. Branham

1399 – “God does His Own choosing, by predestination, chose the prophets for every age. Notice it. He fixes the nature of that prophet to fit that age. See, He fits his style, whatever he does. He fits him whether he’s educated or not educated. He fits the gifts, the manner that he’ll preach in, the gifts he’ll have. And the Message for that certain age, God’s predestinated that certain thing to happen and there’s not another thing can take its place. Care what it is, how many man-made achievements, nothing can take its place. He predestinated the man, maybe a ignorant man. He might have predestinated him another kind of a man. Whatever he is, He gives him his class, his—his gift, give him his nature, his style, and whatever it is, how he expresses himself, and whatever he does. He makes the man of the hour to catch the people of the hour. Right. He does it.”

The revelation of Jesus Christ

Jeffersonville, IN, 12-4-60

Rev. William M. Branham

330 – “And it was sent to the… ‘And signified this by his angel unto John.’ We do not know who the angel was. The Bible doesn’t say who the angel was. But we know that it was a prophet, ’cause the Bible later said, that, ‘I Jesus have sent my angel to testify these things which must shortly come to pass.’ Then we find out that when John started to worship the angel, the angel said, ‘See that you do it not.’ Revelation 22, I believe it is. And he said, ‘For I am of thy fellowservants and of the prophets.’ It might have been Elijah. It might have been one of the prophets. John was an apostle. But this prophet was sent. And John, being an apostle, look at the nature of the rest of his epistles, prove that it wasn’t John wrote it, because it has no nature like John. Take First John, Second John, so forth, and read it. And look at the nature of that, then look at the nature of this. John was a writer and was an apostle, but this is the spirit of a prophet. It’s a different person, altogether.”

 

STAY WITH THE WORD – PART XIV

Words everyone should know

Dr. William Soto Santiago

Friday, July 2, 1982

Monterrey, Mexico

That is why the words of the prophecy of this book are words that everyone must know, because they are words that by receiving them one will be receiving the great blessings of God, one will be receiving all the things that every human being desires for all eternity.

But if you don’t know the words of the prophecy of this book, you can’t have the blessing, because how are you going to believe, keep and receive something that you haven’t heard or known of? That is impossible.

You can’t say that you believe a Word, unless you have heard it first; for when you hear it, that is when you identify yourself as a believer in that Word you heard or as an unbeliever in that Word you heard.

There are many people who say: “I believe all the Word of God.” But when you hear the Word of God, that is when you identify yourself as a believer or an unbeliever in the Word of God.

And how is someone going to say he believes the Revelation, if he does not first hear the words of the apocalyptic prophecy? How is he going to say he believes all that is written there if he doesn’t even know what it means?

First one has to hear the words of the prophecy of that book, where the meaning of all that is written in Revelation is made known, and then the person will assume the position according to what is inside his heart. If what is within his heart is faith, genuine faith in God to believe all the Word of God, he will say: “This is what I was waiting for! I was waiting for the Lord to make known the meaning of all those apocalyptic symbolisms, to receive them!”

When he hears them, he says: “Now I understand the Revelation, now I understand those apocalyptic symbols, now I see; before I didn’t see, I didn’t understand the Revelation, before I was blind to the apocalyptic truths; because when I read, all I saw were symbols, but when I listen, when I hear the words of the prophecy of that book being brought, being brought in this end time where the meaning of all that apocalyptic revelation is made known to us, then I do see, that I understand and receive the revelation of Jesus Christ that He has sent through His Angel to testify of these things in all the churches.”

This is the greatest and most glorious time for human beings, this is the time when all this apocalyptic revelation is made known; it is made known according to how the Lord Jesus Christ said it would be made known.
