Good evening, kind friends and brethren present and listeners. It is a great privilege for me to be with you on this occasion, to share with you a few moments of fellowship around the Divine Program relevant to this end time.
Our topic for tonight is: “BEING GATHERED TO HIS PEOPLE.”
Let’s see here, in this passage, and throughout the entire conference of this occasion, how the person who serves God, when he finishes his days here on Earth is gathered to his people, because he goes from this earthly dimension to another dimension, where he meets with his people, with his relatives, with the believers in God like him.
We have the case of the prophet and patriarch Abraham, in chapter 25 of Genesis, verses 7 to 11, where the Scripture narrates the passing or physical death of Abraham’s body. It says:
“And these are the days of the years of Abraham’s life which he lived, an hundred threescore and fifteen years.
Then Abraham gave up the ghost, and died in a good old age, an old man, and full of years; and was gathered to his people.
And his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, which is before Mamre;
The field which Abraham purchased of the sons of Heth: there was Abraham buried, and Sarah his wife.
And it came to pass after the death of Abraham, that God blessed his son Isaac; and Isaac dwelt by the well (of God) Lahairoi.”
May God bless our souls with His Word and allow us to understand It. Our topic as I told you is: “BEING GATHERED TO HIS PEOPLE.”
Throughout the Scripture we can see that after the days of the human being in this earthly body end, life continues in another dimension; life only ends in this dimension, in this mortal body, but it continues in another dimension.
That is why we also find that when he died physically, his physical body, Isaac’s, it says in Genesis, chapter 35, verse 29:
“And Isaac gave up the ghost, and died, and was gathered unto his people, being old and full of days: and his sons Esau and Jacob buried him.”
And then when Jacob died in Genesis, chapter 49, verse 29, it tells us:
“And he charged them, and said unto them (this was Jacob to his sons, and commanded them, and said to them), I am to be gathered unto my people: bury me with my fathers in the cave that is in the field of Ephron the Hittite…”
See how these people knew that when their physical body died, they were going to be reunited with their people in another dimension, in another world.
Chapter 49, verse 33, also tells us the moment when Jacob died; and it says:
“And when Jacob had made an end of commanding his sons, he gathered up his feet into the bed, and yielded up the ghost, and was gathered unto his people.”
Now, we can see here that he leaves, he passes to another dimension, when the person finishes his days here on Earth.
Now, it is very important to understand something that our beloved Lord Jesus Christ taught us in His Word, so that when the days in this earthly body end, we go to the dimension of the redeemed of God, of the believers in our beloved Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ teaching of what life is after the person dies physically, He tells us in Matthew, chapter 16, verses 19 and on, and also in Matthew, chapter 10, verse 28. It says:
“And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
Now see how Christ teaches us that we should fear God, who is the one who can destroy in hell the soul and body of the human being who doesn’t believe in our beloved Lord Jesus Christ as his Savior. But fearing God and believing the Gospel, and believing in our Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior, then we go to Paradise if our earthly days here on Earth are over.
And that Paradise is another dimension; where there are trees, there are birds, there are rivers and there is of everything there is here on Earth, which has been created by God; but there are no problems that we have here on Earth: economic problems, social problems, government problems, military problems, social problems and all the problems we have here on Earth, nor pollution problems, none of those problems are in that sixth dimension, which is Paradise.
And neither the worries that we have here, they don’t have them there either. It is a place where life is restful, and where God is served and where we live in a theophanic body of the sixth dimension, which is similar to our physical body, but it is of another dimension.
That is the theophanic body that the person receives when he believes in Christ as his Savior, and washes his sins in the Blood of Christ, and receives the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Christ: He receives a theophanic body of the sixth dimension; so that when he dies physically, he goes to live in Paradise in that theophanic body of the sixth dimension.
If the person hasn’t believed in Christ as his Savior, or doesn’t have that theophanic body of the sixth dimension, therefore, he will have to go to another place, to the place where the spirit that the person has in his body is from, that is, the fifth dimension.
And now, let’s see the case of two people who died in… and of whom Jesus Christ speaks here (whether it is a parable, or something real). See what Christ says: Chapter 16, verses 19 and on, Christ speaks of this event… let’s see, He speaks about life after death. Let’s see chapter 16, verses 24 to 27, it says [Matthew]:
“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.”
Now, we can see here that this is very important for every person; because it is required that every person takes care, first of all, in his life, takes charge to ensure his eternal life, to ensure that his life after death will be with Christ for all eternity.
Now, we can also see in the case of Lazarus the beggar, and the rich man: where Christ showed that the rich man died, and went to hell; and then Lazarus the beggar also died, and went to Paradise. And the rich man, being in hell, lifted up his eyes and looked toward Paradise, toward Abraham’s Bosom, and saw Lazarus in Abraham’s Bosom, and saw Abraham also; and he says to Abraham: “Father Abraham, send Lazarus with the tip of his finger dipped in water, that he may put it upon my mouth (that is, upon my tongue), and so I may be relieved.” Let’s see, it is in Luke, chapter 16, this passage. Luke, chapter 16, verses 19 to 31, it says:
“There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:
And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,
And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.
And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom…”
When the beggar died, what happened? The angels took him to Paradise, to Abraham’s Bosom.
You see, when the human being dies, they come to look for him, they come to look for his soul and his spirit to take it to another dimension. And if he is a person who loves God and serves God, who has believed in Christ as his Savior and has washed his sins in the Blood of Christ and has received His Spirit: Angels of God come to take him to Paradise.
But if he is not a believer, what happens to that person? Angels come, but fallen (the fallen angels of the devil), and they take him to the fifth dimension, which is hell; and there he will remain… It is a prison, a dimension from where he can’t get out, he continues to live there.
The kind of life they live in that dimension, well, is different from the kind of life they live in Paradise. And the person remains there until the time comes when the second resurrection occurs, which will be after the Millennial Kingdom of Christ, to present every person before the White Throne of Christ, to be judged and to receive the sentence there.
And those who will come out badly, will be cast into the lake of fire, where they will be destroyed in body, in spirit and in soul also. They will be in the lake of fire for a certain number of years (depending on the sentence that Jesus Christ passes on them).
But the sons and daughters of God, who lived on this Earth serving God, and belong to the Church of Jesus Christ: before the beginning of the great tribulation, if they died, they will be resurrected in eternal bodies, and us who are alive will be transformed. This is before the beginning of the great tribulation. And then we will have an eternal and glorified body, equal to the body of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ, to live with Christ for all eternity, to go with Him to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb; and then return after three and a half years, which the Marriage Supper of the Lamb lasts, while the Earth is going through the great tribulation, which also lasts three and a half years, where the divine judgments will be falling upon the human race.
And then we return to Earth for the glorious Millennial Kingdom of Christ, to be kings and priests in that glorious Kingdom of our beloved Savior; where He will sit on the Throne of David as King, and will rule, will reign over the Hebrew people and over all nations. And we will reign with Him as kings and priests on this planet Earth, in the glorious Kingdom of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ.
And then, those who don’t belong to that group of firstborn of God, of the elect of God, but who believed in Christ as their Savior, and lived a life pleasing to God, and worked in the Work of God, and helped the elect of God: although they can’t be in the glorious Millennial Kingdom, they will be resurrected after the Millennial Kingdom and will be judged by Christ.
And since they helped the elect of God, the firstborn of God, the little ones of Christ, the little brethren of Christ, who are the members of the Church of Jesus Christ, the promise of Christ: “Whoever gives a cup of cold (or cool) water to one of these my little ones, shall not lose his reward.”
And their reward is eternal life. Therefore, those people who helped the elect of God, those little ones, brethren of Jesus Christ, who are the members of the Church of Jesus Christ: they will come out well, because they will receive eternal life after the Millennial Kingdom, and will enter into eternal life, and will live on this planet Earth, and will become part of the nations that will exist in eternity.
Now, we can see that it is very important to be aware of the reality that there is a life after this earthly life.
He who doesn’t understand these things, is mainly concerned with material things, because he thinks that everything for the human being is what he lives here on Earth. But this is not so: After this earthly life there is an eternal life for all who serve God; and for those who don’t serve God, there is a lake of fire, where they will be cast and will be destroyed forever.
Now, we have seen throughout Scripture that there is life after this earthly life, life continues. And we have to make sure that the continuation of our life is in the Kingdom of God, is in Paradise (if our physical body dies). And then, when the resurrection of the dead begins: we will be resurrected, if our physical body has died; and if we remain alive, then our physical body will be transformed, and thus we will obtain the eternal, incorruptible, immortal and glorified body that Christ has promised for all believers in Him; and thus we will be equal to Jesus Christ, and we will be kings and priests to reign with Christ for all eternity.
This is a biblical reality to which every person should be aware of; because if he is not aware: he will live on this planet Earth ignoring the most important thing; ignoring that he has come to this planet Earth to have an opportunity to make contact with eternal life, to be able to live eternally.
That is why Jesus Christ tells us in His Word, in chapter 5 of John, verse 24, it says:
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”
See how important it is to believe in our beloved Lord Jesus Christ and listen to His Voice, listen to His Word.
Also in chapter 6, verse 39 to 40, of John, Jesus Christ says:
“And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.”
When will He resurrect the believers in Him, who have died physically? At the Last Day, which is the seventh millennium.
“And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.”
Again He says: “And I will raise him up at the Last Day,” for the Last Day is the Lord’s Day, it is the seventh millennium, where Christ will resurrect all those who have departed but have believed in our beloved Lord Jesus Christ; and He will transform those who are alive at this time and remain alive in the physical body when the dead in Christ are resurrected, the promise is that we will be transformed.
Now, notice how Christ also in John, chapter 11, verse 23 and on, Martha talking to Jesus about Lazarus’ death…, for Jesus came to resurrect Lazarus. Now Jesus says to Martha:
“Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.
Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.”
You see, she knew that the resurrection would take place in the Last Day, and that her brother Lazarus would be resurrected in the Last Day. And he will be resurrected in the Last Day, which is the seventh millennium.
But Jesus Christ wants to show here with Lazarus what He will do with all believers in Him who have died physically. And now He is going to take Lazarus as an example, as a type and figure, of what He will do with the believers in Him.
Anyone could say: “Jesus Christ is promising to resurrect the believers in Him in the Last Day, and how is He going to do it?” Well look, here He is going to show in Lazarus how He is going to resurrect all believers in Him who have died physically. He has the power to resurrect the believers in Him. He said… let’s see:
“Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?”
We say: “Amen.” And what did Martha say to Him?
“She saith unto him, Yea, Lord (she also believed it): I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.”
Here we can see how Jesus Christ promises eternal life for those who live and believe in Him; He says that they will not die eternally.
Because if his physical body dies: he will be resurrected in an eternal body in the Last Day, and will live for all eternity. But if he remains alive until the dead in Christ are resurrected, and he is a believer in Christ who has been born again: he will be transformed in this Last Day, and will have the eternal body, and will live for all eternity in an eternal and glorified physical body, just like the body of Jesus Christ.
Now we can see that this matter of life after this earthly life is something very important: it is the most important thing for the human being. There is nothing more important than eternal life.
And if the human being doesn’t make the most of his days while he lives here on Earth, eternal life escapes him; because the human being doesn’t know on what day he will die. That is why he needs to receive Jesus Christ as his Savior, and wash his sins in the Blood of Christ, and receive His Holy Spirit as soon as possible; so that when his physical body dies: he goes to Paradise.
That is, be taken by the angels to Paradise, to live there in the theophanic body; and then, in the Last Day, at the precise moment when the Mystical Body of Christ is completed with the last elect of God, then the dead in Christ will be resurrected by Jesus Christ, and us who are alive will be transformed. The dead in Christ will be resurrected in eternal bodies, and we will be transformed and have an eternal body as well.
Now see what a great blessing there is for the believers in our beloved Lord Jesus Christ.
And now, if the person departs or his physical body dies, he is gathered with his people; there is no problem: he is gathered with the believers in Christ who are already there in Paradise, for that is his people; because we are God’s people, members of the Mystical Body of Christ, of the Church of Jesus Christ.
Saint Paul, speaking of the Church of Jesus Christ in chapter 12 and verses 22 and on, says [Hebrews]:
“But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,
To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,
And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.”
Now, we can see that we have approached Mount Zion, which is the Church of Jesus Christ; and the Church of Jesus Christ, Her members, which are the elect of God, have their names written (where?) in Heaven, in the Lamb’s Book of Life, since before the foundation of the world.
These are the firstborn of God or the predestined of God, which since before the foundation of the world have their names written in the Book of God, the Lamb’s Book of Life.
These are the sheep of which Christ speaks to us in John, chapter 10, verses 14 and on, where He tells us:
“I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.”
Here we can see that these sheep that the Father has given to Jesus are the sons and daughters of God, the firstborn of God written in Heaven since before the foundation of the world; who come to this Earth, are manifested in human flesh on this planet Earth, for what? To receive eternal life through Jesus Christ, whom on Earth, by means of His manifestation through each angel messenger of each age, is calling and gathering His elect in each age.
And it is through each messenger that He calls and gathers His elect, places His Word in the mouth of each messenger that He has sent from age to age, and through this messenger He calls and gathers His elect in each age.
For this end time He has said that He will send His Angels with a Great Voice of Trumpet and they will gather His elect: Matthew, chapter 24, verse 31. And also in chapter 16, verse 27, Christ said: “For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father (and then, what does it say?) with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.”
Now we can see that at the Coming of the Son of Man, the Angels of the Son of Man (which are the Two Olive Trees, the ministries of Moses and Elijah), will be manifested here on Earth to call and gather God’s elect with the Great Voice of Trumpet of the Gospel of the Kingdom. Preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom, all the elect of God are called and gathered.
These ministries of the Angels of the Son of Man are the ministries of Moses and Elijah, which will be manifested in the Angel of Jesus Christ, where the Son of Man will be manifesting Himself and will be sending those ministries, those Angels, to call and gather the elect of God. With what? With the Message of the Great Voice of Trumpet, of the Gospel of the Kingdom, which revolves around the Second Coming of Christ as the Lion of the tribe of Judah, as King of kings and Lord of lords, in His Reclaiming Work.
Now notice how the elect of God in the Last Day are called and gathered: it is through the ministry of the Angels of the Son of Man, it is through the ministry of Moses and Elijah; it is through the ministry of Moses and Elijah with the Message of the Gospel of the Kingdom calling and gathering all the elect of God in this end time.
It is very important to understand these things to know how God would be speaking to us in this end time, and would be calling and gathering us in the Age of the Cornerstone and Dispensation of the Kingdom, and preparing us to be transformed and raptured in this end time; so that, if we remain alive and the dead in Christ are resurrected in eternal bodies, soon we will be transformed and gathered with our people, which is the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ that will be resurrected in eternal bodies; and we will go to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb in Heaven, and there we will enjoy that great feast of three and a half years, where Christ will be distributing the rewards to all His children who have worked in His Work in the age and dispensation in which they were allotted to live in.
Now, we have seen how it will be there at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. We have also seen how it is when the person dies, we have seen where he goes: he goes to Paradise, if he serves Christ; but if he doesn’t serve Christ, he goes to hell, which is the fifth dimension, where he will remain there until after the Millennial Kingdom. In other words, when the Millennial Kingdom is over, then they will be resurrected; they will be resurrected to be judged by Jesus Christ on His White Throne.
In the parable that Christ gave us, in chapter 25, He also speaks of the Judgment of the Nations; the same thing that will happen later on in the Last Judgment. But this Judgment of the Nations is also manifested before the beginning of the great tribulation, where there will be nations that will receive the blessing of God, but there will also be nations that will receive the divine judgment, they will not be able to enter the glorious Millennial Kingdom of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ.
And in order to understand these things that must be happening in this end time, in which we by the grace of God are living; for that, notice, Jesus tells us in chapter 4 of Revelation:
“After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.”
Where are we going to go up to? To the Age of the Cornerstone. And He will show us all these things that will happen after those that have already happened in these two thousand years that have passed from Christ until now.
And now, through whom will Jesus Christ be manifested making known to us all these things that must shortly be done? It will be through a prophet called the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ. In Revelation, chapter 22, verse 6 and on, it says:
“And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.”
Who has He sent? His Angel Messenger. What for? To show His servants the things that must shortly be done, in this end time.
One can’t know the things that must happen soon, in this end time, unless it is through the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ sent to make known all these things that must happen to the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Also in Revelation, chapter 22, verse 16, again Jesus Christ testifies of His Angel and that He has sent His Angel Messenger, and says:
“I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches.”
Of what things? Of these things that must happen soon.
Now, we see here in the Scripture, in Revelation, that for this end time God, Jesus Christ, will send His Angel Messenger to testify of all these things that must happen soon, in this end time; and thus obtain the knowledge of the Second Coming of Christ as the Lion of the tribe of Judah, as King of kings and Lord of lords, in His Reclaiming Work; and obtain knowledge of the Angels of the Son of Man, which are the ministries of Jesus Christ, of Moses and Elijah, manifested in His Angel Messenger; those are the ministries of the Son of Man: the ministry of Moses and the ministry of Elijah.
There we have those three great ministries that are promised to be manifested in this end time. And that is through His Angel Messenger, whom He sends to give testimony of all these things that must shortly be done, in this end time.
No one will be able to see, understand, all these things that must shortly be done, except those who will be hearing and receiving the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ; and therefore, obtaining the revelation of the Word of God that He brings to the Church of Jesus Christ in this end time.
And this is how we also know the mystery of what happens after the person physically dies on this Earth: Either he goes to the fifth dimension, if he is not a believer in Christ, he goes to the fifth dimension, which is hell; or if he is a believer in Christ he goes to the sixth dimension, which is Paradise, and then at the Last Day he will be resurrected in an eternal body, if he is a born again believer in Christ.
Now, we have seen this mystery of what is after death, and how they are reunited with their people after they die.
“BEING GATHERED TO HIS PEOPLE.”
We saw Abraham, we saw Isaac, we saw Jacob; and so on and so forth, we have seen the departed saints, who have been gathered to their people.
In every age, the elect of God when they die physically, in their physical bodies, they have been gathered with their people, that is, with the members of the Church of Jesus Christ who are already in Paradise, because they have also departed.
And for the Last Day they will return to Earth, and will come to be with their people: God’s elect of this Last Day, which we are alive; and we will be transformed.
And all united with each other, those of us who live gathered with our people, those who will be resurrected in eternal bodies, then we will go to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb in Heaven, to that great heavenly feast, in the House and to the House of our heavenly Father.
It is very important to insure our life with Christ; that is the only insurance that is for all eternity, and its benefits are for all eternity. And that is the insurance that every person needs to have to be insured with eternal life; and even if his physical body dies: continue living in Paradise, in an eternal and glorified body, a body of the sixth dimension, a theophanic body.
And then, for the Last Day, he will receive an eternal physical and glorified body, if he has departed, if his physical body has died; and if he hasn’t died, then he will be transformed, and he will also obtain the eternal body.
See the importance of having the insurance that Christ offers us. That is the insurance of eternal life to be gathered with our people when our earthly days here are over.
“BEING GATHERED TO HIS PEOPLE.”
It has been a great privilege for me to be with you on this occasion, giving testimony of our subject: “BEING GATHERED TO HIS PEOPLE.”
Now, there is something I think you want to know. How many dimensions are there? There are 7 dimensions: light, time, matter, waves, the fifth dimension (hell), the sixth dimension (Paradise) and the seventh dimension (God). See?
First dimension: light. Second dimension: time. Third dimension: matter. Fourth dimension: the waves, where radio and television work.
It is through the waves… You look and you don’t see anything, but if you have a radio or a television, you turn it on, you tune it, and you can see those images that are passing through the fourth dimension, which is the dimension of the waves; and then you can see what they are transmitting from the places where they have those transmission equipment. And so you can see, in that fourth dimension, the things that are being transmitted by those channels.
So it is in other dimensions as well. But you see, people sometimes see in those other dimensions, either in dreams or in visions, and also when they leave this Earth, when they finish their earthly days here.
Now, it is very important to be prepared to go to the sixth dimension when our days are over, if our physical body dies; and if our physical body doesn’t die, then it will be transformed. And then we will go to our heavenly Father’s House.
It is very important to be prepared to go to the House of our heavenly Father; he who is not prepared, can’t go to the House of our heavenly Father.
We have seen the dimensions, so that you have them also and know that there are seven dimensions.
Well, it has been a very great privilege to be with you on this occasion giving testimony of our subject: “BEING GATHERED TO HIS PEOPLE.”
At this time, I will pass over to Reverend Jaime to give you the telephones and addresses, and the place where you can also watch video conferences like this one, to obtain more knowledge of all these things, of all these mysteries of these dimensions, so you can receive the blessings of God and be prepared to go to live with Christ for the Millennium and for all eternity. God has a Program, you have to enter through that Program to obtain those blessings.
Again we are going to have Reverend Jaime with us.
Thank you very much for your kind attention, beloved friends and brethren present and listeners; and may God continue to bless you all.
With us Reverend Jaime, to continue.
