Identifying the End of Time

Good morning, beloved friends and brethren present, ministers here in Guatemala and in other nations of Latin America, North America, the Caribbean, and other nations, and especially to the Church in Puerto Rico (the Great Tent-Cathedral), and the pastor, Minister Jose Benjamin Perez in Puerto Rico.

Congratulations for the work of the construction of the Great Tent-Cathedral which you are carrying out in Puerto Rico.

I would like to congratulate the National Coordinator of the Global Embassy of Activists for Peace in Guatemala, Miguel Gonzalez, and all the Activists, for the excellent events carried out these days in favor of the human family.

Today we will be watching a few videos of the latest events carried out through the project “Children of Mother Earth” and the International Blood Drive campaigns “Life is in the Blood – Donating the Sap of Life.” We will also be watching a video about the important construction work of the Great Tent-Cathedral in Puerto Rico, which is being carried out thanks to the support of hundreds of churches worldwide. Go ahead with the videos.

We have been seeing the work that the Global Embassy of Activists for Peace has been carrying out in different nations. We have also been seeing everything you have been doing here in Guatemala and in other nations. And today we also saw the construction of the Great Tent Cathedral being carried out in Puerto Rico. I would like to greet Deputy Victor Manuel Estrada and his wife and his daughter, who are with us on this occasion, welcome.

Sunday is a very special day for the human being. It is the day which commemorates Christ’s resurrection, which was on a Sunday; and on Sundays, Christians would gather there with the apostles. And when the Lord Jesus Christ resurrected, on a Sunday, He gathered with them, and then each Sunday He appeared to them for a period of time of about forty days. He would appear to His disciples, let’s say, every Sunday of the week during those forty days. And we find that the day of Pentecost was also a Sunday, in other words, Christianity has enough reasons to gather on Sundays to worship God in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, hear His Word, and ask God for His blessings upon family and neighbors.

Jesus Christ is the only hope for the human being, and the only hope of the human race is the Second Coming of Christ at this end time. Christianity has been waiting for the Second Coming of Christ for approximately two thousand years, but why has it seemingly taken so long? If He had come in His Second Coming during the days of the Apostles, we wouldn’t be here worshipping God and believing in Christ. It’s because during this time period of about two thousand years, Christ has been in the Throne of Intersession in Heaven as the High Priest, according to the Order of Melchizedek, interceding for every person written in Heaven in the Lamb’s Book of Life. They are the ones who would make up the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ from stage to stage and from age to age. And we have been allotted to live in this time and discover the reason of our existence here on Earth. We are on Earth to make contact with eternal Life through Christ our Savior, so that He may give us eternal life. That is the purpose of the human being. Christ rightly said: “Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” [Matthew 6:33.] And He also said: “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.” (Saint Matthew chapter 16.)

And now, it is important to know why we exist, why we have come to this Earth without us asking to be here. Therefore, the Divine Hand has brought us to this Earth. We have come from another dimension: from God’s dimension, to leave on earth, to serve Christ and enter into the Program of Redemption to seal our eternal destiny with Christ in His Eternal Kingdom.

Let’s read in Saint Luke chapter 21, verse 25 and on. It says:

And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees;

When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand.

So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.

Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.

Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.”

May God bless our souls with His Word and allow us to understand It.

“IDENTIFYING THE END OF TIME.”

It is important to know which time we are living in. Anyone may say: “The day in which we are living is Sunday, July 10, 2016.” That is according to the Gregorian calendar, but according to God’s Calendar… we want to know from that Calendar what day it is in the Divine Program; because this Earth and all its inhabitants are subjected to God’s Calendar.

And Christ, on one occasion when the Pharisees and Sadducees approached Him to tempt Him, notice what took place there. Chapter 16 of Saint Matthew, verses 1 and on, says:

The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven.

He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.

And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?

A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.

Human beings look at the sky and see that it’s cloudy, and say: “It’s going to rain.” And if someone doesn’t recognize the signs of rain, he goes out without taking a raincoat or umbrella, and gets wet; but the one who sees the signs that it is going to rain, prepares himself, because he knows the signs of rain, because there can be no rain without clouds; clouds are full of water to pour rain out over the Earth.

And Christ speaks about this here: He compares the signs of the weather, physically, with the signs of God’s time, the time of the Divine Program, in which God has promised to carry out certain things.

During the time of Jesus, the promise was the Coming of the Messiah as the Lamb of God, as John the Baptist introduced Him when he said: “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” [John 1:29.]

Just like in Egypt God commanded Moses to ask each father of a household to take a lamb and sacrifice it on the day of Passover, and to place the blood on the doorposts and lintels of their homes to preserve the lives of the firstborn, and the paschal lamb.

Saint Paul says in First Corinthians chapter 5, verse 7: “For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us.

Just like in Egypt, were the lives of the Hebrews firstborn was spared, they did not die when death fell upon the firstborns in Egypt, nevertheless the firstborn Egyptians, including the son of the king, of the pharaoh, died. They did not know the sign of the time for the preservation of the life of the firstborn.

And that Lamb represents Christ, our Passover, who was sacrificed for us on Calvary’s Cross for the preservation of life, so that we may preserve our lives throughout the eternity. Therefore, without Christ and His Sacrifice no one can preserve their life throughout eternity.

Christ Himself says that he who believes in Him has everlasting life, and that He will raise him up at the Last Day. (Saint John, chapter 6, verses 39 and on.)

Now He is talking about a specific Day: The Last Day. Remember that one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. [Second Peter 3:8.] The Last Day is the seventh millennium from Adam to the present, and the human race has already been entering into the Last Day, which is the time when Christ will resurrect His believers who have died, and He will change His believers who are alive. And therefore, they will have immortal, glorified, eternal bodies like the glorified Body Christ our Savior has.

Christ established that at the Last Day He would resurrect all His believers who have physically died.

And Saint Paul, as a person knowledgeable of that mystery in First Corinthians chapter 15, verses 49 to 58, tells us: “Behold, I shew you a mystery: We shall not all sleep (in other words, not everyone will die), but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead in Christ shall be raised incorruptible, and those of us that are alive shall be changed.

There is a Divine Promise for the Last Day, a promise of resurrection for all the believers in Christ who have died in past ages, and who have passed away in our time as well. And for those who will be alive, the promise is that they will be changed, and they will obtain the physical immortality we need so much and which will fill us with joy, with which we will all become in the image and likeness of Christ our Savior.

Therefore, we must know which is the Last Day. We already know it’s the seventh millennium from Adam to the present time. Because: “One day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” (Second Peter chapter 3, verse 8.) And we also know that there will be a Trumpet sounding which is the Voice of God speaking to His Church at the Last Day with the Message of Great Voice of Trumpet, to give them the faith to be changed and taken with Christ to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, in the rapture or catching away of First Corinthians chapter 15, verses 49 to 58 and First Thessalonians chapter 4, verse 13 and on.

And this will be the redemption of the soul, spirit, and body, and above all, the redemption of the body to become physically immortal. Which is also called the adoption of the sons and daughters of God, according to Romans chapter 8, verse 14 and on, where it says:

And if children, then heirs; (verse 13) For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,

Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.

And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.”

The redemption of the body, where the believers in Christ who died, will resurrect in glorified, young, and eternal bodies, and the believers in Christ who will be alive will be changed. And then we will have physical eternal Life according to the Divine Program, according to the prophetic Word of God.

Saint Paul also spoke about that in Ephesians chapter 4, verse 30, when he said:

And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.”

Sealed by the Spirit of God unto what day? The day of the Redemption.

Therefore, it is important to know that the Day of Redemption will be the day of the resurrection of the dead in Christ and the transformation of those who are alive, which will take place during the Second Coming of Christ at the Last Day, because Christ is the One who says that He would carry this out at the Last Day. That is why it is so important to know these Divine Promises, so that we are prepared for our adoption: the redemption of our body, in order to be able to live in the Kingdom of Christ during the Millennium and throughout eternity.

We are in the most glorious time of all times, the time which the prophets and the apostles wished to live in.

Notice, in Saint John chapter 6, verses 39 and on, it 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.

And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.”

Christ is the One who says He will resurrect His believers at the Last Day; and Christ’s followers of that time knew this very well, because when Christ went to resurrect Lazarus, He had a conversation with one of Lazarus’ sisters, where it says in Saint John chapter 11… Verse 21 and on, of Saint John chapter 11 says:

Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.

But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.

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.

Since those days, the believers in Christ knew that the resurrection of the believers in Christ would be at the Last Day.

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?

She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.”

Now, Martha and Mary also believed that Christ would resurrect His believers at the Last Day; therefore, she knew that Lazarus would resurrect at the Last Day, but she did not know that Christ could resurrect at any time any believer who passes away and whom He wants to live for a longer period of time.

Jesus is the Resurrection and Life, therefore He can resurrect any one at the time He wishes, but the resurrection in everlasting, immortal, and glorified bodies is at the Last Day, it is not for another period of time. That belongs to the first resurrection, and there was already a resurrection of the believers of the Old Testament when Christ resurrected on Sunday morning.

Therefore, Christ is the One who will carry out the resurrection of all His believers, this was represented, typified, in Him resurrecting Lazarus among the dead, who had been dead for four days.

It does not matter how long ago a believer in Christ passed away, it does not matter if years have passed, Christ will resurrect them at the Last Day. And we already know that the Last Day is the seventh millennium from Adam to the present.

Therefore, Christ is the only hope of eternal Life for the human being, and He is the only way to reach God. He said: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (Saint John chapter 14, verse 6.)

Therefore, the only hope there is for the human being is the Second Coming of Christ for the resurrection of His believers who have died and the transformation of those who will be alive on this Earth, to obtain physical immortality and go with Christ to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb in Heaven, which will last three and a half years and which corresponds to the time of the Great Tribulation for the human race here on Earth. While humanity will be going through the Great Tribulation, which is the second part of the seventieth week of the prophecy of Daniel chapter 9… because the first part of that seventieth week was fulfilled by Christ during His earthly ministry of three and a half years. And three and a half years left of that week, which is the end of time of the seventy weeks of Daniel, and therefore, it is the end of time for the Gentile Kingdom.

We are very close to the adoption, to the resurrection of the dead in Christ and the transformation of the living believers in Christ. We are seeing the signs in the sky, in the sun, in the moon, in the stars, in the sea, as well as the volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, sea quakes, wars; Christ Himself spoke about all these signs which would be manifesting at the end time. Therefore, Christ said that when we see these things, to know that the Kingdom of God is near.

The Kingdom of God will be established or restored on Earth. And which is the Kingdom of God? The Kingdom of God is Kingdom of David that will be restored on Earth, and the Throne of David, which the Messiah the Prince will sit upon to rule over the Hebrew people and all nations. And the Gentile Kingdom, which been going through different stages, is at the stage of feet of iron and clay, and that is why at this time we can see the situation that countries are in.

Therefore, we have the signs that we are at the time for the fulfillment of the Coming of the Lord to resurrect His believers who have died, and change those who are living and take them with Him to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.

Christ said that the people of those days did not know the signs of the times; they did not see them, they did not understand them, they did not know them.

When a person goes to another city, he must take the road, path or street that will take him to that place, and for that there are also signs he needs to see and follow in order to reach that place. It is the same way to reach the Divine Program relevant to our time: there are signs which Christ indicated would take place, and we already see them being shown on Earth.

Therefore, Christ said that when we see these things taking place, know that summer is near. The Kingdom of God is near. David’s Kingdom will be restored as it says in Ezekiel chapter 37, and as Ezekiel chapter 34 says.

And the Kingdom and Throne of David will be restored, and the Gentile Kingdom will removed, it will break into pieces, (as it says in Daniel chapter 2) with the Coming of the Stone not cut with hands that will smite the image, the Gentile Kingdom, in the feet part iron and part clay. And the Kingdom of God will be established on Earth. Jerusalem will be the Capital, the Federal District will be the territory of Israel, and from there, the Messiah the Prince, the Son of David, will govern over the human race. And that will be the Kingdom of God according to Isaiah chapter 9, which will bring the peace for and among human beings.

People seek peace, but there are always problems, there are wars in different places; but Christ said that we would have wars and rumors of wars. The everlasting peace will come in the Kingdom of the Messiah the Prince, because He is the Prince of Peace, the Prince of Peace of Isaiah chapter 9; and He is the only One who can bring peace to all of humanity.

Just as He can bring peace to the soul, He will bring it to all nations. That is why in the Kingdom of the Messiah, war weapons will be turned into tools to work in agriculture and other areas in favor of the human family; and the environment will not be contaminated nor will the human being be contaminated. It will be a kingdom of peace and happiness for all those who have received Christ as their Savior.

We are at the time in which the signs of the times, the signs of the Messianic times, are being seen in all nations. Therefore, it is important to be IDENTIFYING THE END OF TIME through the signs Christ said that they would be seen on Earth when going into the end of time, in other words, the last three and a half years of the prophecy of Daniel chapter 9, which are the last three and a half years of the seventy weeks of Daniel and of the seventieth week; because Christ has already fulfilled the first three and half years of the seventieth week.

Each week is made up of seven prophetic years. Now, Israel is missing three and a half years of God dealing with Israel. That is why He will turn to Israel to fulfill those three and a half years left of the seventieth week. That is when the Hebrew people will awaken to the reality that there is an Atoning Sacrifice for sin, and they will be converted to God, and God will deal with the Hebrew people once again. But in the meantime, He is dealing with the people of the New Covenant, which is the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. That is why Christ said: “For this is my blood (my Blood) of the New Testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” (Saint Matthew chapter 26, verses 26 to 29.)

Now, there is a New Covenant which God spoke about in Ezekiel, and Jeremiah too, as well as Isaiah. Therefore, it is a great blessing, a great privilege to be inside the New Covenant, because for an individual, this means that he belongs to the people of the New Covenant, that has been redeemed by the Blood of Christ and that he has promises of eternal Life in the Kingdom of God.

The Hebrew people will understand this, later on. In the meantime, God’s Spirit, the Holy Spirit, has been in His Church since the day of Pentecost, calling every person written in Heaven, in the Lamb’s Book of Life, calling them to the Fold of the Lord.

Christ said in Saint John, chapter 10: “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.” Those sheep are the believers in Christ of the New Covenant, of the New Testament, who would be among the Gentiles.

And in Saint John chapter 10, verse 27 and on, Christ also said: “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.

The believers in Christ make up the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. They are written in Heaven, in the Lamb’s Book of Life. They are the sheep of the Father given to Christ to seek and give them eternal Life. That is why He was sent to preach the Gospel to every creature, so that whosoever believes and is baptized can be saved.

This is by seeking the sheep of the Father, which are given to Christ to seek and give eternal Life. “For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.

He came to seek me and save me and who else? Each one of you too. Therefore, we thank Christ who came to Earth and did not spare His Life, preserve it, but rather He gave it for us as the Sacrifice of the Atonement for our sins.

If He had not died, He would have continued living on this planet Earth, but alone. But thank God that He came to fulfill the will of the Father, and He fulfilled the Divine Program relevant to that time.

Some thought that He had failed in His spiritual-religious movement, but He was triumphant, He obtained the victory. He is our Victory. He came for that reason: to die for us. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” [Saint John 3:16.]

Eternal Life is only obtained by believing in Christ. There is no other way. There is no laboratory that can produce eternal Life, only God through Christ freely gives us eternal Life.

Therefore, if there is someone here has not yet received Christ as Savior, you may do so at this time and we will be praying for you so that Christ receives you in His Kingdom, forgives you and with His Blood cleanses you from all sin, and you be baptized in water in His Name, and so that Christ baptizes you with the Holy Spirit and fire, and brings forth the new birth in you; and thus you enter into the Kingdom of God.

Eternal Life is the most important thing. There is nothing more important than eternal Life; and it is accessible to every human being; it is accessible to anyone who reaches out with a hand of faith to receive Christ as his only and sufficient Savior.

On Earth the human being must always make important decisions, but of all the decisions he makes, none gives him eternal Life, through none of those decisions can he obtain eternal Life, except one: receiving Christ as his only and sufficient Savior.

The biggest decision a person makes in his life is receiving Christ as his only and sufficient Savior. That is why Christ said: “Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father.” [Matthew 10:32.] We confess Christ as our Savior publicly, and He confesses us before the heavenly Father.

We have come to this Earth to obtain eternal Life through Christ our Savior. That is why we are here on Earth. That is the reason of our existence on Earth: to obtain eternal Life in the Kingdom of Christ our Savior.

The Kingdom of Christ is the one that will be established on Earth, and therefore, it is important to be born in His Kingdom.

God has many people in Guatemala and in all nations, and He is calling them at this end time to place them in His Kingdom, in His Mystical Body of believers.

Eternal Life is the greatest thing a human being can obtain while he is on Earth; that is why the highest priority for the human being is eternal Life. If the human being does not receive eternal Life through Christ, what did he gain by living on this Earth?

For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” [Saint Matthew 16:26.] Remember that the human being is a living soul. “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” It wasn’t of any benefit for him to have lived this Earth.

It is important to know the reason of our existence on this Earth.

Let’s stand up to pray for the people who are coming to the Feet of Christ here and in other nations.

With our heads bowed and eyes closed:

Heavenly Father, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ I come to You with all these people who are receiving Christ as their only and sufficient Savior, here and in other countries. Receive them in Your Kingdom and give them eternal life. In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I pray to You.

Now repeat this prayer after me which we will be making for each one of you:

Lord Jesus Christ, I heard the preaching of Your Gospel and Your Faith was born in my heart.

I believe in You with all my soul. I believe in Your Name as the only name given unto man whereby we must be saved. I believe in Your First Coming. I believe in Your death on Calvary’s Cross as the Sacrifice of Atonement for our sins.

I acknowledge that I am a sinner and that I need a Savior. I give public testimony of my faith in You and Your faith in me, and I receive You as my only and sufficient Savior.

I pray that You forgive my sins and with Your Blood You cleanse me from all sin, and baptize me with Holy Spirit and fire and bring forth the new birth in me.

I want to be born in Your Kingdom, I want to live eternally with You in Your Kingdom. Make a reality in me the salvation You purchased for me on Calvary’s Cross. I pray to You in Your Eternal and glorious Name, Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

Now, those who have received Christ as Savior may ask: “When can I be baptized? Because Christ said: “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.” [Mark 16:16.]

Water baptism is a commandment of Christ our Savior. Even Jesus Christ Himself was baptized by John the Baptist. John did not want to baptize Him, he said to Him: “I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?” And Jesus said to Him: “For thus I becometh us to fulfil all righteousness.” Then, he baptized Him. And when He was raised from the baptismal waters, the Holy Spirit came upon Jesus like a dove. [Matthew 3:13-16.]

It is important to do what Christ says.

And now, water baptism does not take away, the Blood of Christ is what cleanses us from all sin; but it is a commandment of Christ in which we identify with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection. That is the symbolism of water baptism in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Therefore, you may indeed be baptized and may Christ baptize you with Holy Spirit and fire and bring forth the new birth in you. And we will continue seeing each other eternally in the Kingdom of Christ our Savior.

It has been a great privilege to be with you on this occasion.

May God bless you and keep you, and I leave Missionary Miguel Bermudez Marin with us to continue, and the minister here, Reverend Esteban Golon.

And in each country I leave each minister to let you know what to do to be baptized in water in the Name of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ, so that you may fulfill the commandment of Christ our Savior. “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved.”

May God bless you greatly, take care of you, and protect you, and we will see each other eternally in the Kingdom of Christ our Savior.

Our subject for our Bible study today was: “IDENTIFYING THE END OF TIME.”
