Good evening, beloved friends and brethren in Christ gathered here and in different countries. May God bless you greatly and may He open the Scriptures and our understanding in order to comprehend. In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
Warm greetings to missionary Miguel Bermudez Marin, who was speaking to us a few minutes ago; and also to all the ministers in every country.
For this occasion, we already heard missionary Miguel Bermudez Marin and we have also heard the readings by Reverend Joel Lara, which revolve around the topic: “THE DAY OF THE SON OF MAN AND THE WORKS HE WILL DO IN HIS COMING.”
We read chapter 17, verse 20 and on, of Luke, which says:
“And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:
Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see it.
And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: go not after them, nor follow them.
For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day.
But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation.
And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.”
May God bless our souls with His Word and allow us to understand It.
“THE DAY OF THE SON OF MAN AND THE WORKS HE WILL DO IN HIS COMING.”
Jesus tells us that the Coming of the Son of Man will be as the days of Lot and also as it was in the days of Noah.
In both times there was a destruction: for the people or antediluvian world in Noah’s time, and it was with water; at the time of Lot, the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah and nearby cities was with fire; and as it was in those days, it will also be in this end time.
The destruction with water in the time of Noah and the destruction with fire in the time of Lot, represent the divine judgment that will fall upon the human race for the destruction of the kingdom of the antichrist, of the kingdom of the beast, of the kingdom of the gentiles, that will be in the stage of the feet of iron and clay; for the interpretation given by Daniel, chapter 2, of the statue that the king saw and was interpreted by the prophet Daniel, the destruction of the statute came in the feet, in other words, when it was representing the kingdom of the gentiles in the end time, in the stage of the feet of iron and clay, which is the final stage of the kingdom of the gentiles, the stage that corresponds to the beast, to the antichrist in the end time. Therefore, the destruction will be with atomic fire; atomic fire in a Third World War that will take place in the end time.
Before the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, God appeared to Abraham, and then the Angels Gabriel and Michael appeared to Lot, there in Sodom and Gomorrah. In other words, that manifestation of God represents the manifestation of the Son of Man with His Angels for the end time; and His Angels are the ministries of Moses and Elijah for the end time.
The ministry of Moses was repeated in Jesus and it will be repeated in this end time; and the ministry of Elijah was repeated in Elisha, then it was repeated for the third time in John the Baptist, and then it was repeated for a fourth time in Reverend William Branham; and once again will be repeated in this end time for a fifth occasion as one of the Two Olive Trees, the Two Anointed Ones of Revelation, chapter 11, verses 1 to 14, that promise, that prophecy comes from Zechariah, chapter 4, verses 1 to 14.
How will God do it? It is simple. It will not be literally Moses, but a prophet like Moses. That is what the Scripture says: “The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet; unto him ye shall hearken.1”
And the promise of the coming of Elijah will not be literally Elijah, but a prophet like Elijah. That is also how the Jews are expecting him.
And that is for the end time, for the Day of the Age of the Cornerstone, because the Coming of the Son of Man two thousand years ago was in an Age of Cornerstone.
Then we will find that God has already given us a sample of this through Reverend William Branham, in a manifestation of the Son of Man, of the Holy Spirit, of the Angel of the Covenant, of Christ in Holy Spirit veiled and revealed in Reverend William Branham speaking to His Church and carrying out the work of forerunning the Second Coming of Christ.
There was a manifestation of Son of Man in Reverend William Branham, but he has departed; but he said there would be another manifestation of the Son of Man to announce the divine judgments. Therefore, it will be a manifestation of the Son of Man not in mercy, but in divine judgment, to announce the day of vengeance of our God, wherein Christ stopped when He read Isaiah, chapter 61, verse 1 to 2; while He was reading, He stopped in the middle of the passage of Isaiah 61, there on verse 2; and He read that Scripture in Luke, chapter 4.
Why did Jesus Christ not continue reading? Because He was going to say: “That Scripture has been fulfill today…” And He was not carrying out the the proclamation or preaching of the day of vengeance of our God in His First Coming; He was proclaiming the acceptable Year of the Lord. Therefore, He had to read up to that point.
The part about: “proclaiming the day of vengeance of our God,” about 2,000 years had to elapse in order to continue reading the passage of Isaiah, chapter 61, verse 1 and on.
We already had a manifestation of the Son of Man in Reverend William Branham; because the manifestation of the Son of Man is the manifestation of Christ in Holy Spirit through human flesh, in a man, in a prophet. “Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.” (Amos, chapter 3, verse 7). And it is through prophets that the Word comes for the people; it first comes to the prophet and through the prophet the Holy Spirit speaks It to the people.
That is why God calls Ezekiel: “Son of Man,” because the Word of God came to him, and God manifested Himself in Holy Spirit through him bringing the Word to the people.
Jesus Christ spoke about the Coming of the Son of Man in the prophetic field, and it was the most important subject of Jesus’ preaching for the Last Day.
Reverend William Branham tells us in a quotation found in the book of Quotations, which corresponds to the message “Works is faith expressed,” page 38, preached on November 26, 1965, (the month prior to his death). And it says: “The Son of Man…” Page 38 of the message “Works is faith expressed,” paragraph 126, says:
126 – “The Son of Man will be revealed in a body of flesh, you people the church, just exactly like it was before the days of Sodom, a called-out group away from all of them, setting out, believing the promise of God.”
And on page 165 of the book of Quotations, this message by Reverend William Branham, on page 165, paragraph 1471, which narrates these words taken from the message “Trying to do God a service without it being God’s will,” on page 28, from November 27, 1965 (that is, the day after the previous quotation), says:
88 – “That wasn’t Elijah, that was the Spirit of God on Elijah; Elijah was just a man. Now, we’ve had Elijah’s, and Elijah’s coats, and Elijah’s mantles, and Elijah’s everything. But the Elijah of this day is the Lord Jesus Christ. He is to come according to Matthew the seventeen… Luke 17:30, says the Son of Man is to reveal Himself among His people. Not a man, God! But it’ll come through a prophet. Now, He never had two major prophets at the same time.”
Notice how simple the mystery of the Son of Man is; therefore, be alert, pray much for Sunday’s service. Today is only the introduction; and I appreciate the words that Reverend Miguel Bermudez Marin gave us tonight, and the readings given by Reverend Joel Lara regarding this subject, which will be the subject of next Sunday’s Bible school, God willing.
And the subject for next Sunday is: “THE DAY OF THE SON OF MAN AND THE WORKS HE WILL DO IN HIS COMING.”
We have already seen that in the Mystical Body of Christ, in His Church, the Day of the Son of Man is to the Age of the Cornerstone; and as far as chronological time, the Day of the Son of Man is the seventh millennium from Adam until now, where He will have His final manifestation in the midst of His Church; and Israel, the Hebrew people, will see that manifestation and will say: “He is the one we were awaiting.” It is as simple as that.
The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ has the greatest and most glorious promises relevant to this end time, to receive the faith to be changed and taken with Christ to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. And it is the Voice of Christ, the Mighty Angel that descends from Heaven, crying out as when a lion roars and seven thunders uttering their voices, that will give us the faith, the revelation for our transformation, the rapturing faith.
And what does that revelation contain? The mystery of the Seventh Seal, the mystery of the Coming of the Lord to His Church, the mystery of the Coming of the Son of Man to His Church; which caused silence in Heaven, in Revelation, chapter 8, verse 1, when that seal was opened in Heaven.
Why? Because it is not good for people to know the mystery until the time comes for that mystery to be opened, to avoid impersonators, so they cannot imitate; because for the days of the Coming of the Son of Man two thousand years ago, there were impersonators such as Theudas and Judas (who came before Jesus); and Jesus said those impersonators who came before Him were thieves and robbers.
All the imitators are classified as such, especially those in the spiritual field; and they will not have a good future. The impersonators have a place to go at the end of the road; therefore… it is not good for them, and no one desires that ending, not even themselves.
We always want what is original, what is genuine from behalf of God, although it does not have the attraction the world likes, the fame, as artists, and all those things.
We want what is real, what God has promised to give us in this end time; and that is the manifestation of the Son of Man in the Last Day, which will give us the faith to be changed and taken with Christ to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, in what is known by Christianity as the catching away or rapture of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.
We are in the Last Day or seventh millennium from Adam until now, and we are also in the Day of the Age of the Cornerstone. Therefore, they are both the Day for the manifestation of the Son of Man, to give us the faith to be changed and taken with Christ to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.
With what we have heard, we have the introduction to next Sunday’s Bible school.
Therefore, may God bless you and keep you all, and may He open our understanding and the Scriptures to comprehend the mystery of: “THE DAY OF THE SON OF MAN AND THE WORKS HE WILL DO IN HIS COMING.”
Next Sunday we will see the works promised that the Son of Man will carry out in His Coming. I have said one of them, which is to give us the faith, the revelation, to be changed and taken with Christ to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. And that is how the mystery of the Seventh Seal will be opened to the Mystical Body of Christ in the Last Day.
And once we know the mystery of the Coming of the Son of Man, we will know the mystery, of what?, of the Seventh Seal, and receiving the faith to be changed and taken with Christ to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.
May God bless you and keep you, and be with you all the days of your life, and me too. In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
I leave with you once again Reverend Joel Lara to continue and finalize; and we will continue next Sunday.
And what do we have for tomorrow?… (We will talk later… since it was not… Since they did not put it on my list, I must see the commitments for tomorrow, and see if there is time available; which I cannot promise at the moment, but we will see if there is time to gather with the ladies tomorrow. But you may gather even so, and if we find a space, we will come by, since we will be in this same area).
So, may God bless you; and the ladies may have their service while we are in other meetings, in another meeting; and if there is time, we will be with the ladies for a few minutes.
What time will that be?… [At 4:00] In the morning…? [No. In the afternoon]. That is the most secure time but… We will try to be with the ladies, but I cannot confirm that yet; but I will try to be with the ladies tomorrow, God willing, I hope to get some time from the meeting, so I can have the opportunity to go and gather with the ladies in their meeting.
Well, may God bless you and keep you. Pray much for Sunday’s service, God willing, in which we will talk about today’s subject, which we have had as the introduction to next Sunday’s Bible school.
Continue having an evening filled with the blessings of Christ, the Angel of the Covenant. Have a good night.
“THE DAY OF THE SON OF MAN AND THE WORKS HE WILL DO IN HIS COMING.”
