THE SON OF THE RIGHT HAND

(Volume 54)

And now we have reached the time where that Birthright Blessing given to Ephraim will be seen manifested in the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, in the last ministry that Christ, the heir of all things, the heir of the Birthright Blessing…, who has passed it on, as Jacob passed it on, has passed it on to His gentile Church, represented in Ephraim.

Now, it is in the midst of the gentile Church that the Birthright Blessing will be seen in the Last Day manifested, although it has always been there; but it will be manifested in all its fullness, so that the sons and daughters of God, who have been redeemed by the Blood of Jesus Christ, who are the Firstborn written in Heaven, in the Lamb’s Book of Life, will receive their resurrection, those belonging to the past ages and some of ours who have departed; and we who are alive will be transformed.

Because the Birthright Blessing, the blessing of the one who is on the right hand, the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ has it all the time, from the time He was born until this Last Day, where that blessing contained in the Book that was sealed in Heaven with seven seals is spoken; because the Birthright Blessing comes from the Right Hand of God, it is contained in that Book that is in the Right Hand of God.

And that Book is opened in the Last Day, and it is brought to the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ by our beloved Lord Jesus Christ; and it is delivered to His Church through the ministry that the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ has in the Last Day, which is the ministry of the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

(…) Now, here when John sees Him in the Lord’s Day, when the ages are past, he says [Revelation 1:16]:

“…and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.

And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me…”

And that is the Right Hand where the Birthright Blessing is. And He places His Right Hand here over John; and John represents the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ in the Last Day, in the Lord’s Day, where Jesus Christ places the ministry of His Angel Messenger of the Dispensation of the Kingdom.

So the Right Hand of Christ is placed over His Church, which will be under the ministry of Christ through His Angel Messenger. And there we can see the Son of the Right Hand, the Son upon whom Jesus Christ places His Right Hand to bless him.

By blessing His Angel He will be blessing all His Church in the Last Day. That is why in Revelation, chapter 10, which is the same, Christ as a Lion descends from Heaven with His face like the sun, with the little Book open in His hand, and cries as when a lion roars, because He comes as the Lion and not as a Lamb, and seven thunders utter their voices.

(…) Now, lets see something here:

“And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me…”

And Jacob placed His right hand upon Ephraim. And now Christ places His Right Hand —which brings the Book of the Seven Seals— upon His Church, by placing His Book of the Seven Seals on John, which represents the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ and the whole Church of the Lord Jesus Christ in the Last Day.

Now look how here, when Christ placed His right hand upon John, then, in Revelation 10, when He gave him the Book of the Seven Seals, there He is placing His right hand on John, which is type and figure of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ under the ministry of the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

It always comes to the ministry placed by Christ, the Word; it is always to the ministry that God has placed in every time that Christ’s blessing comes to His Church.

And now, in the Last Day, we can see how the blessing of Christ comes to His Church, that Birthright Blessing, that Title Deed: it comes through the ministry that Christ has placed in His Church in the Last Day, which is the ministry of His Angel Messenger, of the messenger of the Dispensation of the Kingdom and of the Age of the Cornerstone.

 

THE MYSTERY OF DIVINE GUIDANCE

(Ministerial Meeting)

Dr. William Soto Santiago

Santiago de Chile, Chile

We have seen that there will be a judgment for all those who have been the messengers of each stage, and they will be judged with their age group; and there, if they do well, they will return to Earth in eternal bodies; if they don’t do well, they will not return. And if any of the age group doesn’t do well, then the messenger can’t bring them here. So you see how that judgment will be for them.

And how will it be for us, being here on Earth? Because the judgment begins where? In the House of God. That is a judgment in the House of God for those of the past ages and for those of us who live here on Earth.

So at the end of our work we will see —in that judgment that He will make for us— whether we will enter or not. Therefore, let everyone be careful; for the Scripture said, Saint Paul said, that every man’s work shall be tried, and the fire shall try him: and it says that the work of some will be burned up.1

So you have to be aware of this reality, and work in the Work of Christ with divine love and with reverence, with respect and with holiness in the Work of the Lord, aware that we are not working for any person here on Earth, but for God; and He expects a correct behavior from all of us; that we don’t get into trouble or look for trouble, but that we work being faithful to Christ and His Work in the time in which we live.

And always avoiding doing things that will be of stumbling to the Lord’s Church. Never thinking as any person may think: “He who stumbles, let him stumble.” That is an irresponsible attitude and thinking; for which he will have to give an account to God.

We can’t be stumbling stones, but of blessing, for all the sons and daughters of God; always helping each other in everything, and knowing that at the end of the road, at the end of our work, and at the end of the work of the Work of Christ in this Last Day, in the Age of the Cornerstone, comes that little part, where those who are in Paradise, the messengers with their group, will be judged, and we also here on Earth.

 

THE MYSTERY OF THE ARK OF THE COVENANT APPLIED TO THE LAST DAY

Dr. William Soto Santiago

Cayey, Puerto Rico

You see, Moses, who was the humblest man of all the people, at that moment he was filled with anger; and all the good things he had done weren’t enough for God to forgive him that fault. And for that reason he couldn’t enter the promised land in the body of flesh.

He did enter in his theophanic body; you find him later on Mount Transfiguration in the midst of the Hebrew people; but he couldn’t enter in his body of flesh, he couldn’t pass to the other side of the Jordan; although the territory where the prophet Moses died belongs to the Hebrew people, it belongs to the tribes that took inheritance before crossing the Jordan; in other words, in the territory that they conquered before passing to the other side of the Jordan, which were the tribes of Reuben and Manasseh.

And now, you see how one can’t be angry, because anger causes serious mistakes and problems for the person before God. You will find, throughout biblical history, that every person who has served God and has become angry to carry out the Work of God, and has done it in anger: has had problems before God. An example is the prophet Moses.

Now, you see, throughout the biblical history, how every person who serves God has to do it with all his heart, with love, expressing to Him even in the work he does in the Work of God, expressing love to God.

Because he is serving God with all his strength, in the labors that he is doing in favor of the Work of God; and he is serving God with all his spirit and with all his mind, doing things with understanding, doing them well done; and he is doing them also in spirit, and he is doing them also with all his soul. That is, with body, spirit and soul working, working in the Work of God, and with divine love.

Anger doesn’t produce good fruits for people who let themselves be carried away by anger; and then, at the end of the road, they lose all the blessing they had, that has happened in many people throughout history.

(…) Now, you see, how we have to act: with divine love and with sincerity in the Divine Program, loving one another as Jesus Christ said.

He said: “Love one another.” Saint John also said it, he said: “By this you will know that you are truly my disciples: that you love one another.”2 We can’t be contending with our brethren, because that displeases God.

(…) We are not to be fighting with one another, ministers with ministers, or brethren against brethren; but to be in harmony, in divine love, helping one another; and receiving the Word, and also carrying the Word, the Message, to other people.

Now, you see how the work of God must be done in and with divine love; not in anger. The one who works in anger will be seen at the end of the road badly, because his work will not be pleasing before God, and will be burned; and the person will have problems before God.

Now, if he is predestined, an elect, he will hold on to the messenger of his time. And if he doesn’t hold on, then he will testify —with that action— that he doesn’t have his name in the section of the Lamb’s Book of Life; and he runs the risk that his name will be erased, because he is in the other section: in the section of the Book of Life, from where some names can be erased; and the messenger will not recognize him as part of his group. This is so for the seven ages of the gentile Church and for our age as well.

 

THE VOICE OF THE SIGN

Dr. William Soto Santiago

Different ages have passed, where Christ through His Spirit has been cutting those living stones, those believers who would form the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ; each one, each one, in the age that corresponds to him.

Seven stages of the gentile Church or among the gentiles have already passed, and now we are in the stage of the Cornerstone; where He cuts through His Spirit the living stones that will form that stage of the Church, the Cornerstone stage, which is the most important stage of all the ages, of all the stages, because it is the stage that crowns and with which Christ crowns His Church.

That is the stage that we are allotted to live in. That is the stage for which there is the promise of a Third Pull to be manifested in a Great Tent Cathedral. Therefore, the sign of the wonders that will happen in that manifestation of the Third Pull, from God in all His fullness, will have a Voice: which is the Final Message of God, which is the Seven Thunders, the Voice of Christ speaking as the Lion of the tribe of Judah to His Church, and thus giving them the faith to be transformed and taken with Christ to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.

It is at that stage where the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ will receive the revelation of the Second Coming of Christ to His Church. That is the parallel stage to the First Coming of Christ.

That stage is the most glorious of all the stages of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, because it is the stage where the Church will receive the faith to go with Him to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.

It is the stage in which Christ will come in His Second Coming and will manifest Himself in all His fullness. Therefore, it is the most glorious stage of all the stages of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. And it is a great privilege to live in the time relevant to that stage of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, where He will fulfill all the promises He has made to His Church.

We have great promises in the Scriptures, to be fulfilled in this end time.

It is promised that Christ will manifest Himself in all His fullness in the midst of His Church, and the Jews will know Him. Here, on page 41, paragraph 189 of this booklet or message “The Feast of Trumpets,” preached on July 19, 1964, it says:

[252] This will be the Trumpet; the feast, be rejected, then their Messiah made known.

253 Notice, they’ll (that is, the Jews) know their Messiah when they see Him. He is coming in power, this time, the One they looked for. He is coming in power, for the Gentile Bride, and the Jews are going to recognize Him.”

In other words, the manifestation of Christ in the Last Day, in the fulfillment of that Third Pull, where He will be manifested in all His fullness in the fulfillment of the Tent Vision, the Jews will see that manifestation and they will say: “But this is the one we are waiting for!”

Israel is waiting for the Coming of the Messiah; and the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ is also waiting for the Coming of the Lord. Since the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ is in the New Covenant, which is in force, it is to the Church that He will come in this end time.
