Now He is not only giving crowns but He says that these in the bride will be made pillars in the temple of God. But what is the temple of God? Jesus spoke of His body as being the temple. It was. It was the temple of God. But now that we are His body, the true church is the temple of God by the Holy Ghost within us. Now He is going to make the overcomer a pillar in that temple. But what is a pillar? A pillar is actually a part of the foundation for it holds up the superstructure. Praise God, that puts the overcomer right in with the apostles and prophets, for it says in Ephesians 2:19-22, “Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God; and are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief corner stone; in Whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: in Whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.” Yes, that verse 22 says that we are builded together with them. Everything went through the DOOR (Jesus) and is a part of that body or temple. Now when God puts a man in the temple as a pillar and makes him a part of that foundation group what is He doing? He is giving him the revelation of the Word and of Himself, because that is exactly what the apostles and prophets had. Matthew 16:17. There he is in that Word. There he stands. No one can get him out.

 

THE SIXFOLD PURPOSE OF GABRIEL’S VISIT TO DANIEL

[127] When the Tabernacle is erected; the resurrection has come; the Jews has returned; Christ and His Bride has come; the Jew, the hundred and forty-four thousand are sealed; the Millennium has taken place. There will be an anointing when the most Holy place will be anointed; the holy, Holiest of holies, and the most Holy. When, the most Holy place is the sanctuary where God lived, between the Cherubims. And, this time, Christ will set in the most Holy place, with the anointing upon Him. And they’ll need no sun there, for the Lamb in the midst of the City shall be the Light. The sun will never go down in that City, as old Uncle Jim used to say. And it never will, because Christ will be that Light, the anointed One. And the King will come and take His Throne for one thousand years, to reign.

 

GOD WILL SUPPLY ALL THAT YOU LACK

It is important to know these things to know that the meeting place for the people, designed by God, is the greatest project that the people can carry out.

It is important to know these things in order to seek, to know what construction is promised in God’s Program to be carried out, on which or in which God would be or will be manifested in the Last Day.

When Moses dedicated the temple to God, the presence of God entered the temple and the priests couldn’t minister because of the presence of God. When Solomon dedicated the temple to God, the same thing happened: the presence of God entered in the Cloud, and the priests couldn’t minister due to the Presence of God in the temple.

He entered into the most holy place and stood upon the mercy seat, in the midst of the two golden cherubim; a place which only the high priest could enter, and with the blood of the sacrifice of atonement on the tenth day of the seventh month of each year.

Two sons of Aaron entered without the required blood and with strange fire, and died there in the most holy place, because the fire of God went out and burned them; for God is a consuming fire; he is love, but he is also a consuming fire.

We find that the tabernacle built by Moses, as well as Noah’s ark, and the temple built by King Solomon, typify Christ and also the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, and every believer in Christ; because just as God is: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, the human being is: soul, spirit and body; and the Church is: Outer Court, Holy Place and Most Holy Place, because the Church is a spiritual Temple for God.

(…) You see, the most holy place was covered with gold inside and outside, which represents Divinity; that is why that is the Golden Age also for the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. And there were the golden cherubim over the mercy seat, which represent Gabriel and Michael, and also the Two Olive Trees, for there also Solomon built two olive trees, two giant cherubim of olive wood, and covered them with gold; which tells us about the Two Olive Trees. And gold represents Divinity, and the olive wood: humanity, the ministry of Moses and Elijah. It is as simple as that.

 

THE NEW TEMPLE

We know that our theophanic body, if it is seen in motion, what will be seen is a light; but someday that light will be in this body manifested and will transform this earthly body. Therefore, don’t be afraid of those mysterious lights: one of them will be your body from the other dimension.

So this is a time that they are reappearing in different places, and at any moment something good is going to happen with us.

Remember to have your life prepared; because that is an angelic body, that is a heavenly body, and if you are not prepared, it can’t get close enough to you to transform you. See? So let’s be prepared. At any moment, something is going to happen.

Of course, we all wish it was this year. I am the first one to wish for it. And if you were to ask our beloved brethren of the past dispensations, what do you think they would say? If you were to ask the messengers of the seven ages, what do you think they would say? “We would like to go back right now!” But the Scripture says that they are waiting for us, until we reach perfection.

I think we are getting there, I think we are getting very close. And when we get there completely, each of us as individuals, then the saints of the past ages must come. That is what the fourth Elijah said. It can’t be otherwise. So our part is up to us. God’s, is up to God.

Let us be ready, let us be prepared. If everything should hold up, and we couldn’t be transformed in this year, it would only be because of one thing: because we are not ready, and we would then have to wait for the next year. If we were not ready next year, we would have to wait another year.

But we want Him to perfect His Work in us, and that this very year, if He can finish bringing us to perfection, to what we lack, we would like Him to do it. What for? So that then we will be transformed, we will be moved, and we will leave here… even if we stay here. Do you understand?

Because when we leave here, we will not be far away: we will be right here but in another dimension. So we can work more than we have worked, we can preach better, we can do more things than we have done. So the Work will go on, and this Earth will be cleansed and then the Millennium will begin after that.

These things that we are talking about, you already know that they are a material that was stored by the fourth Elijah, but now we are using it. It was stored for us to use. For what? For the Work of this New Temple that is being built, and we are already in the last part of this New Temple. We are in the most important part, the part of laying the Cornerstone to that Temple, that Temple of God.

Therefore, we are being prepared, we are all being prepared. Let yourself be prepared by God, so that you may rejoice in a great way when God fulfills the rest of the things that are yet to be fulfilled. Let us be in expectation.
