Source Scripture: Revelation 1:10-20
BOOK OF THE SEALS
The First Seal – Pages 125-126

73 We found, in the studying of the Scripture, that the messenger to the age come right at the end of the age, every time. Paul come at the end of the age. We find out that Irenaeus come to the end of the age. Martin, end of the age. Luther, the end of Catholic age. And (what?) Wesley at the end of the Lutheran age. And Pentecost at the end of the age of sanctification, to the baptism of the Holy Ghost.
74 And at the end of the Pentecostal age, we are supposed to receive, according to the Word, as God help me tonight to show you, through here, that we are to see, receive a messenger that will take all those loose ends out there and reveal the whole secret of God, for the rapturing of the Church.
75 And then there is coming forth seven mysterious Thunders that’s not even written at all. That’s right. And I believe that, through those Seven Thunders, will be revealed in the last days in order to get the Bride together for rapturing faith. Because, what we got right now, we—we wouldn’t be able to do it. There is something. We’ve got to step farther. We, we can’t have enough faith for Divine healing, hardly. We’ve got to have enough faith to be changed, in a moment, and be swept up out of this earth. And we’ll find that, after a while, the Lord willing, find where It’s written.
THE HOLY SPIRIT, OUR SUSTAINING FORCE

Christ had sent His twelve apostles to preach, to heal the sick, to cast out demons, to do all the things that Jesus also did (and later sent seventy more); but now they encounter a problem, that what they were doing was not working for them; they tried to get it to go out by casting it out, rebuking it, and it wouldn’t go out. It shows that the disciples didn’t have perfect faith, like Jesus had.
And someday the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ will reach the perfect faith, in a perfect age, to obtain the Great Victory in Divine Love; of which the Reverend William Branham speaks, showing the Scriptures that speak of that great blessing that is coming for the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, where she will reach the perfect faith and will obtain the Great Victory in Divine Love. And all that will be carried out in the fulfillment of the Third Pull, which corresponds to the fulfillment of the Tent Vision.
That is why great things are going to happen by the creative Word that will be spoken, with perfect faith, and that is where the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ will obtain the Great Victory in Divine Love, and will reach the resurrection of the dead in Christ, they will be with us again; and when we see them, we will be transformed. It is as simple as that.
And the works that the Scripture says:1 “The works that I do, you shall do also,” will be a reality in that perfect age, which is the Age of the Cornerstone; where the Great Victory in Divine Love will be obtained to such a degree that the great victory over physical death will be obtained; because we will be transformed, and those who died believers in Christ will return, they will be resurrected in glorified bodies.
They are in their theophanic bodies, angelic bodies, which is in spirits, in the spirit world, in the sixth dimension, to which Jesus, Jesus Christ will descend; and after a judgment that He will make with the leaders, then He will come to Earth, He will resurrect them in eternal and glorified bodies; and when we see them, we will be transformed. It is as simple as that.
THE LAST DAY AND ITS MYSTERIES
Dr. William Soto Santiago

Cayey, Puerto Rico
And now, you see, all these things for this end time are mysteries of the Last Day; mysteries of the Last Day for the world and the kingdom of the world, the kingdom of darkness, which will be operating through the stage of the feet of iron and clay, which is the kingdom or empire of the antichrist, of the beast, of the man of sin, of 666.
And to know that mystery of 666, it says that it is for the mind that has wisdom. And the Archangel that comes to give wisdom is the Archangel Gabriel, to the prophet Daniel, and he shows all these things to Daniel.
In the revelation that he gave to the prophet Daniel is everything that would be happening in the kingdom of the gentiles, and also the things that would be happening in the kingdom of the Hebrew people.
And now, we find that for the Last Day, the mysteries that will be fulfilled in the midst of the gentiles, all are already prophesied, for they are contained in the Book of Truth; and the Archangel Gabriel is the one who has access to that Book, and he is the one sent to give revelation (to the prophet Daniel) of the contents of that Book, of the things that are to happen.
THE MYSTERIES OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD

And then in chapter 22, verse 16, it says:
“I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.”
It is through this Angel that the revelation came to John of all things that were to come to pass. We find him ministering already in John’s time. Just as the Angel of the Lord, the Angel of the Covenant, we find Him in the Old Testament ministering, and then He became flesh and dwelt among the Hebrew people, and was known by the name of Jesus.
And now, Christ has that Angel ministering in His Church. You see, in John’s time the apocalyptic revelation is ministering her; this Angel knows all those things that must happen soon, and He gives them to John in parabolic form, with these symbols, which are symbols that correspond to the Old Testament.
That is why we find that these symbols of Revelation are also in the book of the prophet Ezekiel, and also in the book of the prophet Daniel, and also in the book of the prophet Isaiah; and so on, we find these symbols in the Old Testament; we find them in the book of Leviticus and Exodus as well, these symbols.
In other words, all these apocalyptic symbols had already been used in the Old Testament, both in parables, in prophecies, as well as in the construction of different things in the temple built by Solomon and the tabernacle built by the prophet Moses.
Now, we are living in the time when these mysteries of the Kingdom of God, relevant to this end time, will be being opened to the elect of God; and only the Spirit of Christ, the Spirit of God, is the one who knows the things of God. Therefore, through His Holy Spirit, this Angel in the Church of Jesus Christ, on the Last Day, will be manifested in human flesh, making known to us all these things that must happen soon.
He gave them to John in symbols, which comes to be something parabolic and prophetic. He will open the Scriptures to us and make known the meaning of all these things that must happen soon.
Many have already been made known by the Spirit of Christ through the apostles Saint Peter, and also by the apostle Saint Paul, and also by the seventh angel messenger of the seventh Church age: Reverend William Branham. But there are things that have not yet been opened, but we have the promise that they will be opened and made known to the Church, above the seven Church ages, above the first age, the second, the third, the fourth, the fifth, the sixth and the seventh age; and that above is the Age of the Cornerstone, where the Spirit of Christ will be manifested; and through His Angel, Jesus Christ will be revealing to us all these things that must happen soon.
Now, we already know that this Angel is the faithful and wise servant; we know that this Angel who gave John the revelation of Revelation, Reverend William Branham says that he is a prophet; and it says that all revelation has to come through a prophet: it can’t come in any other way.
Therefore, all those who want to know the revealed Word for the Last Day (apart from what God has already revealed by the prophets, Jesus, the apostles and the seven angel messengers), everything that corresponds for this time to be revealed, has to come through a prophet.
Therefore, all things that must happen and we must know, we will be knowing them as they are being opened by the messenger of the Last Day, who will be a dispensational prophet messenger; and, therefore, it will be the first occasion —and the only one— that Christ will send a dispensational prophet to His Church.
Therefore, if it was great when God sent the apostles, if it was great when Christ sent the first angel messenger (Saint Paul), the second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh, much greater will it be for this end time, in the Church, when the Church sees the Angel of Jesus Christ, the messenger of the Dispensation of the Kingdom, of the seventh dispensation, making known to us all these things that must shortly come to pass.
Through that ministry that will be operating in that Angel, He will be calling and gathering all the elect of God with a Great Voice of Trumpet.
That is the Angel that has the Great Voice of Trumpet, that is the Angel that will be the messenger to the Church of Jesus Christ in the Last Day in the Age of the Cornerstone, and then He will be the messenger to the Hebrew people also; because He is a dispensational prophet messenger, promised in the prophecies and parables that were spoken and that will be fulfilled in this end time.
Part of these parables have already been fulfilled, such as the sowing, birth and growth of the wheat; but the harvest corresponds to this end time. And the Harvest…, for the harvest of the wheat to be carried out, it corresponds to the ministry of the Angels of the Son of Man; ministries that will be in the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Just to know that this mystery will be being fulfilled by the Holy Spirit in the Angel of Jesus Christ, is to have a very great revelation of the things that will be happening in this end time. And therefore, you will know that that will be the Angel Messenger, and the Message that he will bring, what Christ will support in this end time; because the other angel messengers have already reached their end.
John the Baptist said, speaking of Christ: “It is convenient for Him to increase, and for me to decrease.” And the forerunner of the Second Coming of Christ said: “There will not be two here at the same time. And even if there were: I will decrease, and he will increase.”
THE WAY TO THE MOST HOLY PLACE

Now, there is something very important there, which will be happening: When Christ finishes His Work of Intercession in Heaven, the Mystical Body of Christ will already be complete, the spiritual Temple of Christ will already be fully built; the Most Holy Place will already be built, which is the last thing that is built; and it is already dedicated to Christ, to God, that spiritual Temple. And then Christ manifests Himself in it, in the Most Holy Place, on the Ark of the Covenant, on the Mercy Seat; and all mercy, for whomever it may be, can only come out of that Temple.
Because from the Temple which is in Heaven, since there is no Blood there, and Christ will no longer be there, mercy will no longer go forth from there. But since the spiritual Temple of Christ will be merged with the heavenly Temple: Everything that takes place in that earthly Temple, that is, the Church of Jesus Christ, although it is a heavenly Temple, God will accept it.
It is from there that Christ will be ministering after He finishes His work in the Throne of the Father; and then He comes to claim His own Throne. And He will claim the Throne of David, to sit as King.
And now, He will be manifested on Earth in the instrument that corresponds to the ministry of the Most Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Christ; therefore, he has to be a dispensational messenger. And the only one there is, promised in the Bible, Christ says that He sends him: “I Jesus have sent my Angel to testify of these things in the churches.”
The manifestation of Christ, the Angel of the Covenant, in the Most Holy Place of His spiritual Temple will be through that messenger. Therefore, there will be a ministry that corresponds to the High Priesthood to be able to minister in that place.
That is why for the ministry in that place, to minister the Word, to bring the divine revelation, only that ministry will come; and only that ministry is the one that will be able to bring the divine revelation to the people.
