God confirming the work of our hands

How many wish they had lived in Noah’s time to be helping Noah? That was God’s work for that time. Others would have wanted to live in the time of Moses, that powerful prophet of God, to be working alongside Moses, and to be working and collaborating for the construction and in the construction of the tabernacle, because it was a temple for God to dwell in and bless His people.

It had an outer court, a holy place and a most holy place, because the human being has body, spirit and soul. The body is equivalent to the outer court, the spirit is equivalent to the holy place, and the soul is equivalent to the most holy place. It is as simple as that.

God’s gifts always find their places

Jeffersonville, IN., 12-22-63

Rev. William M. Branham

1045 – “That’s the reason that God does nothing outside of a man. He always works through a man because He had to use a man. A man is what He had to use to display His attribute of Saviour. He had to make him in His image, make him something like Him, and put him on free-moral agency and let him act any way he wanted to. He could take his choice. And He knew that man, by giving him this choice, would fall. So being that He had to do that, He turns back around and makes the man a partner to Him, and does nothing except He does it through a man!”

(Third activity)

Ibarra, Ecuador

Remember that this land or this terrain, is the soul of the person, the person here in the depths of his being, which is his soul.

The human being is triune: he is body, spirit and soul. The Word is preached, it enters through the body, through the ears, it passes to the spirit through the understanding and the reasoning and all these parts, it passes inside, through the person’s thought it passes inside, it reaches the soul; and there the person, because he has the sense of free will to believe or to doubt, or he believes or doubts the Word of God.

Arriving on time at the place of salvation

Dr. William Soto Santiago

Cali, Colombia

And now, the most important thing is the salvation of the soul.

As for the physical body (which is mortal, corruptible and temporary), it is a body in which we have come to Earth after the fall of man in the Garden of Eden, and we have appeared on this planet Earth to be tested; to be tested and that each of us as individuals, using our God-given free will, say to God: “Yes, we want to live forever” or “we do not want to live forever.”

And how do we tell God that we want to live forever? By entering through the narrow Door: The Door which is the Door to eternal life. Christ said: “I am the Door; whoever enters by me will be saved.”

The person who enters through that Door is saved to live eternally with Christ in His Kingdom, and enjoy all that eternal life from which the human being fell; and everyone who is interested in living eternally, enters through that Door.

The New Earth

Dr. William Soto Santiago

Sabana Seca, Toa Baja, Puerto Rico

Knowing all the problems that will come, knowing that we will have to go through a squeeze, knowing that God tells us through brother Branham that we will be at the mercy of the elements, and already knowing how those where the Word was incarnate, how they could act and how to solve the problems that could come, well, then we do not worry about the problems; what worries us now is: to be in good position and in good disposition, and to take all the time that is necessary so that that Word, that Title Deed, becomes incarnate in us; the rest, later on, is simple.

The hardest thing for us is what? The hardest thing is for the Word to be incarnated. Not difficult in terms of God making the thing difficult for it to become incarnate; in terms of God and on God’s part it’s simple. The hard and difficult part is from you, that because of the chores of this life, because of so many things that we have to do on this Earth to survive, we have very little time to devote to the time of the Word, to have it incarnate in us.

And as we have seen through the countless years that we have been through, that has always been our problem: that we have very little time available to devote to the Lord, so that He can incarnate His Word in us.

The veil that Christ has taken from us

Dr. William Soto Santiago

Thursday, September 10, 1998

San Bartolome M.A., Sacatepequez, Guatemala

And just as the tables of the Law, the Word of God for the Dispensation of the Law, were placed by Moses inside the temple, in the most holy place, in the ark of the covenant; so Christ brings the Title Deed, the Book of the Seven Seals, and places it inside the Most Holy Place, inside the Ark of the Covenant.

And that is why, notice, Christ, the Mighty Angel that descends from Heaven, tells John —which is type and figure of the Church of Jesus Christ and of the Angel Messenger for the Last Day, as he was also type and figure of the seven angel messengers—, He says to him: “Ask him (He says to John, who is a type of the Angel of Jesus Christ)… Ask the Angel that stands on the earth and on the sea, ask him for the little Book that He has in His hand.”

He goes and asks for it, and the Angel says: “Take it, eat it; it will be sweet in your mouth, but it will be bitter in your belly.”

And John says he took it and ate it, and says it was sweet in his mouth, but bitter in his belly. He says: “And when I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.”

Those are the trials and persecutions and afflictions that the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ will have to go through when he eats that little open Book that is given to him by Christ, the Angel of the Covenant, the Mighty Angel that descends from Heaven.

“And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up (Revelation, chapter 10, verse 10 and on); and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.

And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.”

The final prophecy, the prophecy of the Last Day for many peoples, nations and tongues, comes through the one who eats the little Book of the Seven Seals in the Last Day, which the Angel of the Covenant brings, the Angel of the Lord, which is Christ, the Angel of the Covenant, the Holy Spirit coming in the Last Day with that Title Deed. Coming where? Coming to His Church. Coming to what part of the Church? To the Most Holy Place of His Temple.

 

BOOK OF THE AGES

The Smyrnaean Age – Page 156

Rev. William M. Branham

In every age we have exactly the same pattern. That is why the light comes through some God-given messenger in a certain area, and then from that messenger there spreads the light through the ministry of others who have been faithfully taught. But of course all those who go out don’t always learn how necessary it is to speak ONLY what the messenger has spoken. (Remember, Paul warned the people to say only what he said, I Corinthians 14:37, “If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the COMMANDMENTS OF THE LORD.” “What? Came the Word of God out from you? or came it unto you only?”) They add here, or take away there, and soon the message is no longer pure, and the revival dies down. How careful we must be to hear ONE voice, for the Spirit has but one voice which is the voice of God. Paul warned them to say what he said, even as Peter did likewise. He warned them that EVEN HE (PAUL) could not change one word of what he had given by revelation. Oh, how important it is to hear the voice of God by way of His messengers, and then say what has been given them to say to the churches.

The Divine Love

Dr. William Soto Santiago

Sunday, May 28, 1989

Cayey, Puerto Rico

Now, in that vision we find the Angel of the Lord saying to our brother Branham: “Do you remember the name you were looking for when you had the Tent Vision?” Because in that Tent Vision and in that little room, there is a name, which has to do with the Work that corresponds to the fulfillment of the Tent Vision, which pertains to a new age.

And after the seventh age our brother Branham foreran the Second Coming of the Lord, the new age to come: the Age of the Second Coming of the Lord, the Age of the Cornerstone, the Age of Divine Love. And he stood between the seventh and the eighth age, preparing people to enter into a new age, an eternal age.

That is why when he speaks of the Tent Vision, he unites it with the Victory of Divine Love; for it is in the fulfillment of the Age of the Cornerstone that the Tent Vision is gradually carried out: first in spiritual form; and then later on it will take another form for the benefit of the Bride (the chosen ones, the elect), and also for the benefit of the foolish ones (the Church), and for the lost to see a divine manifestation (which will not be for their salvation).

That is the Third Pull in the fulfillment of the Tent Vision and the fulfillment of the Great Victory of and in Divine Love; which is fulfilled in the Age of Divine Love.

Now, we have already seen that our age is the Age of Divine Love, because it is the Age of the Cornerstone. And you have seen that there are seven steps or seven virtues; and after those seven steps or seven virtues, the next thing is divine love, which is God, the Holy Spirit.

So we are in the Age of Divine Love, the age where the Lord Jesus Christ, the Pillar of Fire in the form of the Spirit, and Jesus Christ in the form of the Spirit, was promised to be manifested in all His fullness in this end time.

That is why the seventh messenger says: “And when the Holy Spirit that we have today, becomes incarnate, we will crown Him King of Kings and Lord of Lords.” That is promised for our age, the Age of Divine Love.
