Scripture: Revelation 19:7-9
THE CONGREGATION OF THE FIRSTBORN
REGISTERED IN HEAVEN
Dr. William Soto Santiago
Tuesday, December 2, 1997
Our souls have come from God, they have come from the seventh dimension; and just as Jesus said: “I came from God and I return to God” [John 16:28], so it is for every son and daughter of God, for every firstborn written in Heaven, in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
Each of the firstborn of God has come to this Earth in the midst of a fallen race; and that is why we have taken mortal bodies and spirits of the world, and that is why a new birth has been required, which we obtain by believing in Christ as our Savior, and washing our sins in the Blood of Christ, and receiving His Holy Spirit; and thus we receive the spirit of the sixth dimension, that theophanic body; and then, in the Last Day, we receive the physical and eternal body that Christ has promised for each of you and for me also. And that is the adoption of the sons and daughters of God, of the firstborn of God, firstborn of God written in Heaven, in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
(…) Now we can see that this is the most important group on planet Earth: The congregation of the firstborn of God registered in Heaven, in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
And now, see how the name of each one of you, and also mine, is written in Heaven, in the Lamb’s Book of Life, since before the foundation of the world; because the first thing God thought of was those firstborn. That is why they are the firstborn: because they are the first persons that God thought of to bring them into existence; and for that reason, since before the foundation of the world, we were as a thought, as an attribute in God’s mind; and we have come from there.
And that is why we have had the right to obtain a theophanic body; and for that the new birth was required. And in order for the new birth to take place, it was required that Jesus Christ came in human flesh: The Angel of the Covenant, the Angel of the Lord, Elohim, Melchizedek, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, who delivered the Hebrew people from Egypt, was required to come in human flesh.
And He came in human flesh and was called Jesus; for His physical body to die on Calvary’s Cross bearing our sins, so that we may live eternally, so that we may be restored to eternal life, and may obtain the eternal body of the sixth dimension, which is the theophanic body or theophanic spirit.
(…) Now, you see, the only thing that saved the Hebrew people from the death of their firstborn was the death of the lamb that each one had in his house, and its blood applied on the lintel of their doors; death couldn’t enter there.
And now, for the firstborn of God written in Heaven, in the Lamb’s Book of Life, God provided a lamb: The Lamb of God, Jesus Christ; and His Blood being applied on the lintel of the door of our soul, of our heart; and us eating His flesh.
And inside the House where that Lamb is —which is the congregation of the firstborns— death can’t kill those firstborns, the devil can’t kill those firstborns with death; because they have eternal life through the Sacrifice of Christ; and they are safe (where?) in the congregation of the firstborn of God.
Outside of that congregation they are not safe; because the congregation of the firstborn of God is the one that has the Blood of Christ applied at the Door; and the Door is Christ. That is in the congregation, the Church, as the Mystical Body of believers; and as individuals, for we have the Blood of Christ applied on the lintel of the door of our heart.
(…) And see how God has that Title Deed in His hand, the Lamb’s Book of Life; and see how Christ then takes it. And let’s leave it there; because then it passes from Christ to a person, who eats that Book.
And when the roll is called, and when the time comes…, we will say, at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, for the distribution of the rewards: The Ministering Angel will have the Book there; for he is the one who receives it in the end time, and the one who eats it; and he will call for them to appear before Christ, for Christ to give His reward to each person.
And why will an Angel be there with Jesus Christ? Because that will be the one who will be working with Him, His administrator. Doesn’t the Scripture say, speaking of the faithful and wise servant, doesn’t it say: “Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing”1 Find him doing how? Giving the food, the ration, on time, to God’s elect. “Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.” And we see him there working with Christ.
THE TIME TO EAT THE BOOK OF THE SEVEN SEALS

We are in a very important time, in which we have to eat the Book of the Seven Seals. And the most important part of that Book is the one that has to do with us; because it is the part that will bring the entire Mystical Body of Christ to perfection, in the Work that Christ will be doing in His Church in this end time.
That is why it is so important to be eating the Book of the Seven Seals open; and for that reason is that in Matthew, chapter 24, verse 44 and on, to 47, Christ says:
“Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household (that is, who is the faithful and wise messenger who the Lord placed over His House…? Which is His Church), to give them meat in due season?” For whom? To the Family of God, to the members of the Mystical Body of Jesus Christ, to the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. To give them the spiritual food?
Who is that faithful and wise servant whom when his Lord comes He will find doing so? Who is that faithful and wise servant whom when his Lord comes He will find giving them the spiritual food of the Book of the Seven Seals, and especially the Seventh Seal, giving them that spiritual food?
But not only does he remain giving them the Seventh Seal, which is the most important of all, but he also gives them the contents of the other seals; in other words, he also makes known to them all the things that happened, that happened in the past, which are already revealed; because God revealed them to the seventh angel messenger, and those things are already history.
In other words, He will also give them the history of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ going through the seven stages or ages of the gentile Church, and he will show it to them in the spiritual Temple of Christ, in the Holy Place; and then he will show them the Church in the Most Holy Place at the end of time. In other words, he will show them the whole Divine Program that Christ had to carry out in and with His Church from the beginning to its end. In other words, he will have a complete Message, because he will have a complete revelation of the Book of the Seven Seals.
THE TRAJECTORY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

During the Millennial Kingdom there will be peace and love among human beings, it will be a Kingdom that will rule the whole world; and no one will be able to sin, because the devil will be bound and cast into the abyss.
Now, we can see that in the trajectory of the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit has been in the Old Testament; we find Him there in Genesis moving upon the waters; we find Him moving in the midst of the people descended from Adam as well, up to Jesus; and in Jesus we already find Him moving in a body of flesh. He also moved through the bodies of flesh of the prophets, Christ the Pillar of Fire, the Holy Spirit.
Then we find Him coming on the Day of Pentecost, and we find Him moving in the midst of His Church; and we find Him moving in the midst of the nations, calling and seeking His elect from age to age.
Nations, peoples and tongues represent or are represented in waters, in seas or a sea, therefore, the Spirit of God has been upon the waters, upon nations, peoples and tongues, producing a new creation, producing sons and daughters of God.
Like the hen when she is in her nest with, let’s say, a dozen eggs, anyone can say: “But what is that hen doing there?” She is heating the eggs, she is incubating them, to produce many chicks, many birds, many chickens just like her and the rooster. And Christ in Holy Spirit is producing sons and daughters of God.
Every time a person is born again, every time a person receives the Holy Spirit: he or she is born, the shell is broken and a son or daughter of God is born. Christ Himself once said (speaking of Jerusalem): “How many times I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks, and you were not willing.”2
Now, we find the Holy Spirit in His path, where? In the midst of His Church, producing sons and daughters of God as He did in past ages, and teaching us all things that are soon to happen, in this end time; for the Holy Spirit came to guide into all righteousness and all truth, and to teach.
He is the Guide for the Church and for every believer in Christ; He is the One who works justification, sanctification and the baptism of the Holy Spirit in every believer; and He is the Seal of the Living God.
(…) May God greatly reward all of you according to the work of each one of you as an individual, and also do it with me; because if He has promised it, I want the reward that He has promised.
Well, if someone doesn’t want it, then it will not be lost, He will give us that reward that someone didn’t want, He will pass it on to someone.
Who knows who or to whom God passes on what others don’t take advantage of? To whom did He pass on the talent of the one who didn’t do anything with it? To the one who had more.
So, in order for God to pass on to us the rewards of others who don’t want to work, then let us work hard, so that we may have many rewards; and may God continue to give us more rewards, well, more talents.
You see, He adds talents to people. Sometimes you see a person who before —as we say— didn’t know how to sing, for example, he didn’t know how to sing, he was out of tune; but he is a person who likes to work in the Work; and suddenly you hear him singing, his voice is already working. What happened there? God has given him a talent. Someone didn’t use the talent.
And now, some people have problems, they have good voices and they don’t sing; and sometimes later their voice is damaged and they are no longer good for anything; but God passed that blessing to someone. One person’s throat was damaged, his voice, and another one’s voice was fixed; when the talent passed from one to the other, things changed for the person.
So let us work in the Lord’s Work as much as we can. In this year we are going to work as if this were the last year we have in these earthly bodies.
I am not telling you what it will be, but we have to be prepared always in the year we are living, believing that this will be the year we are going to be transformed; and the month we are going to be transformed, expecting it to be the month we are living; and the week we are going to be transformed, expecting it to be the week we are living; and the day we are going to be transformed, the day we are living. Always in the present.
(…) I am already waiting for God to give me the green light to speak some things; meanwhile, I am storing (and there is a lot stored); but among all the things that are stored, I am giving you what He allows me to give you; but I have others that I have not yet been allowed to give you; but they are safe, they are very safe. And at some point (whether in Puerto Rico, in some country) He is going to give us those things, and He is also going to open our understanding to understand them.
Well, in these days you have already seen about the Angels, the Archangel Gabriel, and we have also seen about the Angel that accompanied the Reverend William Branham; we have seen these little things. And we have also seen why it also speaks of the Two Olive Trees: Revelation, chapter 11, which is the same as Zechariah, chapter 4, verse 1 to 14.
Well, we have seen that the Archangels of God: Gabriel and Michael, just as they have been in the midst of the Hebrew people in the Old Testament, they have been in the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. Well, let’s leave that alone there, because if everything that is sealed there is spoken, the Seventh Seal would be opened completely to the understanding of the people; but let’s leave that alone there.
It is that the mystery of the olive trees, of the Two Olive Trees, of Moses and Elijah, which are the ones that sound the Seventh Trumpet of Revelation 11, verse 15 onwards, the Reverend William Branham says that the Seventh Trumpet is for Israel the same as the Seventh Seal for the Church; and he also says: “The Seventh Trumpet and the Seventh Seal are the Coming of the Lord.” In other words, it all comes together, and then that is the Coming of the Son of Man with His Angels. See?
So let’s leave that alone there, let’s not open it more than it is open to the understanding so far; but I hope that God continues opening the Scriptures more and more, and also the heart, the soul and the mind to understand.
