REMEMBERING THE LAW OF MOSES: THE HEART

The Law is not to be kept on tables of stone, nor is the Law to be kept written on paper; the Law is to be kept written on the tables of the heart. Therefore:1
“Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.”
Don’t open your heart to things contrary to God’s Plan, don’t open your heart to things that God says you should neither believe nor do. Open your heart only to the Voice of God, open your heart to the Plan of God, open your heart so that God may write His Law and His ordinances in your heart, because from it flows life.
If in your heart God can write His Law, you will then be a person who will be taken as those tables of the Law were taken, and you will be placed in the same place —updated— where the tables of the Law were placed.
Those tables of stone were placed in the most holy place, in the ark of the covenant; there where the manna was, and there where the two cherubim of glory were, and where the presence of God, the Shekinah, was; because those tables of stone had the Scripture, they had the Law of God written there.
And you, being the place where God writes His Law, you will also be placed…, you will be placed as a person in the equivalent place, in the updated place, where the tables of the Law were placed. There you will be able to read the divine laws, you will be able to see and read the updated divine laws; that will be written in your heart.
THE LIBERATING TRUTH

He is not going to leave the work that corresponds to Him for the end of time to please ignorant, fanatic and capricious people, who want God to do something else because they don’t like what God promised for our time.
But the capricious, the unbelievers and all those people who are represented in those people that Jesus said: “As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be at the coming of the Son of Man. And they understood not, until the flood came, and took them all away.”
The people who don’t understand what corresponds to our time will be like those antediluvians: they didn’t understand until the judgment came, the flood, and took them all away.
And those who don’t understand at the end of time will be like those people: that the flood of atomic fire will come and take them away too.
Because the Earth will not be destroyed again with water, but with fire; therefore, a literal ark will not work; but a prophet like Noah has to come, a prophet like Moses, a prophet like Elijah: who will update for us the ark of salvation. That prophet has to place for us the Ark of the Covenant, where the hidden Manna, Aaron’s rod that budded, and the tables of the Law have to be; and all that in an updated form.
THE TEMPLE OF THE VIRGIN MARY’S SON

The seven candlesticks in Revelation and the seven stars… represent —the seven candlesticks— the seven churches or seven ages of the gentile Church; and the seven stars represent the seven angel messengers. In the candlestick, that wick with that lighted light represents each messenger illuminating each age in the stage of the Temple of the Lord Jesus Christ, all in the Holy Place still; because the seven ages or stages of the gentile Church were lived in the Temple of the Lord, in the Holy Place.
We can even see that in the Holy Place there is still a ministry there that influences the ministry of the seven angel messengers; because they, although they had Light for their age, the oil and the light… The oil came from the two golden pipes, from the two olive trees, the two olive branches; therefore, they used that oil to be able to give Light in the age in which they lived. And the light is the Light of the Most Holy Place that is brought into the Holy Place and every lamp is turned on.
Light is brought from that place, Light is brought from a certain place in order to give light in the Holy Place to those who live in that stage of the Holy Place. And the people who were enlightened by the Light in the Holy Place know that they only received a portion, but that the fullness is in the Most Holy Place; because it is with the Glory of God that the most holy place is illuminated; it is with the Glory of God that it is seen in the most holy place.
And for the Most Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of the Lord Jesus Christ, He prepared a group of people, of His children, and He has chosen them from since before the foundation of the world, He separated them; and He said: “These are not going to belong, even if they pass through the Holy Place, they are not going to be part of the Holy Place, but of the Most Holy Place; therefore, I have them chosen for that place; and I am going to call them with a Great Voice of Trumpet and I am going to gather them and place them in the Most Holy Place, and they are going to be the living stones with which I am going to build the Most Holy Place. And I will place in their time – in their time will be the Age or stage of the Most Holy Place, Age or stage of the Cornerstone, Eternal Age, and there I will place the Ark of the Covenant; there I will place the Two Cherubim, the ministry of the Two Cherubim of the Old Testament updated in the ministry of Moses and Elijah, the ministry of the Angels of the Lord at His Coming, calling and gathering with a Great Voice of Trumpet all the elect in the Most Holy Place of the Temple of the Lord Jesus Christ. I will place that ministry there.”
That is why no age of the past could have that ministry: because it was a ministry for the Most Holy Place, over the Ark of the Covenant. And no one could reach the Hebrew people, because it required the ministry of the Two Cherubim, the ministry of Moses and Elijah updated; and for that the Age of the Most Holy Place was required to be functioning. Because the Message to the Hebrew people came out of the Ark of the Covenant; just as the Message of the Law came out to the Hebrew people, which was in the Most Holy Place when the temple was built.
THE DIVINE ORDER FOR THE RESURRECTION AND TRANSFORMATION
Dr. William Soto Santiago

Remember, brother Branham saw the Tent Vision, he had the Tent Vision, and he wanted that blessing; but it wasn’t granted to him because it wasn’t for him.
Now look here, now we go to chapter 3, verse 21. We already read verse 20:
“To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.”
Christ in Holy Spirit is speaking this promise, and now He is promising that, to the overcomer, to him that overcomes, He will give to sit with Him on His Throne. “Even…” What is the Throne of Christ? The Throne of David. “Even…” He says, “Even as I overcame and am set down with my Father in His Throne,” the heavenly Throne.
It is a promise that the beloved disciples, James and John, wanted to take hold of as well. And if they let them and Christ allowed them, they would grab that blessing. That is the greatest blessing of all blessings in the Kingdom of the Messiah. Somebody is going to receive it.
And why didn’t Saint Peter, Saint Paul and all those apostles, and James and John receive it? Because it wasn’t for them. But Christ said: “It is not mine to give, but to those for whom it is prepared.” That is for the Two Olive Trees, in plain words. That is why the Two Olive Trees appeared on Mount Transfiguration, which are Moses and Elijah.
And therefore, from where will those ministries emerge? They will emerge in the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, from the Age of the Cornerstone, which is the Most Holy Place; where they were represented there in the temple that King Solomon made, and prostrated, placed two giant cherubim of olive wood covered with gold. Olive wood speaks to us of humanity and gold speaks to us of Divinity. And there also are the two cherubim of solid gold as well; which shows how it is in Heaven also; and there in Heaven Gabriel and Michael are the main ones, therefore, they are the right hand and left hand ones.
The Divine Order for the resurrection and transformation is in the Age of the Cornerstone, where for that resurrection and transformation of those of us who live will be the manifestation of Christ in His Coming to His Church with the Two Olive Trees; and then the Hebrew people will see it and say, “This is what we were waiting for”.
Therefore, we pray for the Jews; because they have promises from God to be fulfilled in the second part of the seventieth week, which corresponds to the last three and a half years of the seventy weeks of Daniel; because the first three and a half years were already fulfilled in the First Coming of Christ, and the second will be for the Last Day, which will be in the great tribulation; at that time will be that the second part of the seventieth week will be fulfilled.
But something will happen before those three and a half years in the midst of the Church, that they will see and say: “This is what we are waiting for.” And we are waiting for it too. First the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ will receive it and then the Jews.
Reverend William Branham says, speaking of the Seventh Seal, he says… and speaking of what the Second Coming of Christ is, he says: “How will it come and when will it come? That hasn’t been revealed. And it is good that it hasn’t been revealed.” It is that there are so many imitators who would come later trying to imitate to destroy the Divine Program. That is why the mystery of the Seventh Seal will remain…, it will be opened already at the end; and it will give us the faith to be transformed and raptured.
