Good morning, beloved friends and brethren gathered here, in Santiago de Chile. It is a great privilege for me to be with you on this occasion, to share with you some moments of fellowship around the Program of God relevant to this end time.
For which I want to read in First Peter, chapter 2, verse 4 and on, where it says as follows:
“To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,
Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.
Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,
And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;
Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;
Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.”
May God bless our souls and allow us to understand His Word.
Our topic for this occasion is: “THE KINGS AND PRIESTS OF GOD IN THE LAST DAYS.”
The book of Revelation also speaks of this, in chapter 1 and verse 5 to 6, when it says:
“And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,
And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.”
It also tells us in Revelation, chapter 5, verses 9 to 10:
“And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.”
These kings and priests, who have been redeemed by the Blood of Christ, have the promise of Christ to reign with Christ for the Millennium and for all eternity.
That is why it also says in Revelation, chapter 20, verse 4 to 6:
“And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.”
Here we have seen, in the book of Revelation, that there is a new priestly order. For the glorious Millennial Kingdom, the priestly order will be that of this new order, and this is the Order of Melchizedek.
That Order of Melchizedek, which is the Priestly Order of the Temple that is in Heaven, has been appearing on this planet Earth from stage to stage, from age to age; and they have been being redeemed with the Blood of Jesus Christ, since they have been coming in mortal, corruptible and temporary bodies, and obtaining a spirit of the world; and that is why the new birth has been required of those people, which belong to the Priestly Order of the Temple that is in Heaven.
And what has been happening is that the same thing that the high priest carried out on the day of atonement every year, on the 10th day of the seventh month of each year, is what Christ has been carrying out in Heaven; and He has been carrying out that Intercession for all those belonging to that heavenly priestly order.
See how the high priest did it in the temple; chapter 16 of Leviticus says:
“And the Lord spake unto Moses after the death of the two sons of Aaron, when they offered before the Lord, and died;…”
These sons of Aaron went into the most holy place with strange fire, to offer it to God, and they died; because you cannot offer strange things to God, it has to be according to what God has commanded.
And now, God tells Moses something very important; He says:
“And the Lord said unto Moses, Speak unto Aaron thy brother, that he come not at all times into the holy place within the vail before the mercy seat, which is upon the ark; that he die not: for I will appear in the cloud upon the mercy seat.”
Where did God appear in the most holy place? Upon the mercy seat; and He appeared in that Cloud of Light or Pillar of Fire, He appeared there in the light of the Shekinah.
And now, God tells the prophet Moses not to enter into that place at all times, so that he does not die, and He establishes the day when he has to enter in. It is established that on the 10th day of the seventh month of each year the high priest would enter there, to take the blood of atonement there for the reconciliation of the Hebrew people with God and also for the reconciliation of the priests.
And now, let’s see what it says here:
“Thus shall Aaron come into the holy place: with a young bullock for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering.
He shall put on the holy linen coat, and he shall have the linen breeches upon his flesh, and shall be girded with a linen girdle, and with the linen mitre shall he be attired: these are holy garments; therefore shall he wash his flesh in water, and so put them on.
And he shall take of the congregation of the children of Israel two kids of the goats for a sin offering, and one ram for a burnt offering.
And Aaron shall offer his bullock of the sin offering, which is for himself, and make an atonement for himself, and for his house (in other words, for himself and for the priestly house, which are the descendants of Aaron, the priests; and their assistants are the Levites, who are also of the same tribe as Aaron).”
For the reconciliation or atonement of the priests, Aaron was required to take the bullock of atonement to make that atonement for himself and for the priests.
“And he shall take the two goats, and present them before the Lord at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; one lot for the Lord, and the other lot for the scapegoat.
And Aaron shall bring the goat upon which the Lord’s lot fell, and offer him for a sin offering.
But the goat, on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat, shall be presented alive before the Lord, to make an atonement with him, and to let him go for a scapegoat into the wilderness.
And Aaron shall bring the bullock of the sin offering, which is for himself, and shall make an atonement for himself, and for his house…”
The reconciliation of the high priest and the other priests, descendants of Aaron, see how it was carried out: taking the blood of the bullock, which had been taken for the atonement of the high priest and the other priests, its blood was to be brought into the most holy place; though it was sacrificed in the outer court, but then its blood was brought by the high priest into the most holy place.
Now it goes on to say:
“And Aaron shall bring the bullock of the sin offering, which is for himself, and shall make an atonement for himself, and for his house (that is, for his family, for his priestly descendants), and shall kill the bullock of the sin offering which is for himself:
And he shall take a censer full of burning coals of fire from off the altar before the Lord, and his hands full of sweet incense beaten small, and bring it within the vail (that is, the most holy place):
And he shall put the incense upon the fire before the Lord, that the cloud of the incense may cover the mercy seat that is upon the testimony, that he die not.”
When the high priest entered with the censer (which carried the fire – the coals of fire from the altar of incense), he entered into the most holy place, and took his handfuls of ground incense and poured it into the censer; and the censer, because it was burning with the burning coal, there the incense burned and the smoke rose; as when something burns, smoke rises, well, the smoke rose and covered the whole mercy seat. And God was manifested there in the light of the Shekinah; for God said that He would appear upon the cloud, upon the mercy seat.
And now, all this had to be done by Aaron, because otherwise he would die entering into the most holy place; as his two sons died, who entered in, and they entered with strange fire, not with the fire commanded by God.
“And he shall take of the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it with his finger upon the mercy seat eastward; and before the mercy seat shall he sprinkle of the blood with his finger seven times.
Then shall he kill the goat…”
In other words, then he will leave the most holy place and go again into the outer court (for he would change his clothes) and kill the goat of the atonement (the one who fell by lot for the Lord); and then he will take the blood of the goat…; he shall change his garments again, and put on the linen garments that pertain unto him, that he may enter into the most holy place (for he cannot enter with any other garment but linen), and shall take the blood of the atonement of the goat, and spread it again upon the mercy seat, as he did the blood of the bullock. Let’s see:
“Then shall he kill the goat of the sin offering, that is for the people, and bring his blood within the vail, and do with that blood as he did with the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it upon the mercy seat, and before the mercy seat:
And he shall make an atonement for the holy place, because of the uncleanness of the children of Israel, and because of their transgressions in all their sins: and so shall he do for the tabernacle of the congregation, that remaineth among them in the midst of their uncleanness.”
And now, since the tabernacle that Moses built and the things it contains within, and the one that Solomon built, represents the Temple that is in Heaven…; and therefore it represents the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, which is the spiritual Temple of Jesus Christ.
And now, let’s see here something that Saint Paul told us, so that we do not miss it. In his letter to the Hebrews the apostle Saint Paul tells us: in chapter 9, verse 16 to 24, he says
“For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.
For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth.
Whereupon neither the first testament was dedicated without blood (in other words, that the first Covenant was instituted with blood).
For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people,
Saying, This is the blood of the testament which God hath enjoined unto you.
Moreover he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry.
And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.”
Everything that has to be redeemed requires blood; and the blood of the redeeming animal is then required.
“It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these…”
The figures of the heavenly things, in other words, all the things that were there: the tabernacle, the utensils of the tabernacle and everything that was there in the tabernacle was sprinkled with blood, and the people themselves; and that is type and figure of those who would be sprinkled with the Blood of Jesus Christ.
“It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these (with a better sacrifice: with the Sacrifice of Jesus Christ our Savior).”
And now, the Temple of the Lord Jesus Christ, which is His Church, is sprinkled and purified with the Blood of Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God and Goat of Atonement, for our reconciliation with God.
And just as the high priest made intercession with the blood of the bullock that was for him and for the priests, now you see how all these sacrifices (both the goat and the bullock for the high priest and the other priests), all these sacrifices represent the Sacrifice of Christ.
And now, by the Blood of Christ, the priests of the Order of Melchizedek, who have been coming to this Earth since the days of Jesus until now, we find that they are redeemed and reconciled with God through the Blood of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ.
And now notice that the Priestly Order of Melchizedek has been passing through this planet Earth; and our Melchizedek, the Priest of the Temple of God that is in Heaven, has been doing the same thing that the high priest was doing on Earth in the earthly temple: the high priest making intercession for the priests; and he was making intercession with the blood of the bullock, spreading it over the place of intercession, over the mercy seat, seven times.
And now, notice, Christ has been in Heaven for these two thousand years that have passed, and He is still there making intercession. And now see how He makes intercession in Heaven for all the members of the Order of Melchizedek, which are the sons and daughters of God, the members of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.
That is why Saint Peter tells us that we are priests. And of what priestly order? Of Melchizedek, which is the Eternal Order, it is from the heavenly Temple. And that is why when we come to this Earth we have to be in a temple here on Earth that represents the Temple that is in Heaven; and the temple here on Earth that represents the Temple that is in Heaven is the spiritual Temple of the Lord Jesus Christ, which is His Church.
And now, Peter tells us what we are doing here as priests in this Temple of Jesus Christ. It says… First Peter, chapter 2, verse 5, says:
“Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood (notice, that spiritual House and that priestly House, which is the Church of Jesus Christ, is being built), to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.”
And we offer spiritual sacrifices to God when we have the activities and we sing to God and glorify God: we are in that work of spiritual sacrifices (where?) in the Temple of God, as they had to be done in the temple of God in the midst of the Hebrew people.
And now, it continues to tell us in verse 9 of this same chapter: First Peter, chapter 2, verse 9, it says:
“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood…”
What is the Royal Priesthood? That of Melchizedek, it is eternal; and that is the priestly order that will be throughout the Millennial Kingdom.
“…an holy (people) nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light…”
And when we are making known the virtues of the One who called us out of darkness into the light, we are ministering as priests of the Order of Melchizedek.
So when the members of the Church of Jesus Christ are working in the Work of Christ, taking the Message everywhere, working in that work, both in preaching and printing the Message in booklets, and also in videos and tapes, and taking that Message: we are ministering as priests of the Order of Melchizedek, in the Temple of Jesus Christ, which is His Church.
Look at the work of the priests of the Order of Melchizedek, of those who have been made kings and priests by the Blood of Christ. And during the Millennial Kingdom, we will literally reign on this Earth as kings of the Order of Melchizedek.
And as priests of the Order of Melchizedek, who will be in charge of the entire religious side? The priests of the Order of Melchizedek; because the religious side of the Millennial Kingdom and of all eternity corresponds to the new order: to the Order of Melchizedek and His children; for His children are the priests of the High Priest, priest children of the High Priest; just as the sons of Aaron were the priests and Aaron was the high priest.
And now, Jesus Christ is the High Priest Melchizedek, of the Temple that is in Heaven; and His children, which are the believers in Christ who have received Him as their Savior and have washed away their sins in the Blood of Christ, and have received His Holy Spirit: they have been born as priests of the Order of Melchizedek; their souls have come from God, from Heaven, from our Melchizedek. And that is why we belong to the Priestly Order of Melchizedek, the new order that will be throughout the Millennial Kingdom, in charge of all the religious side of that Kingdom.
And since our Melchizedek is also the King of the entire universe, the children of Melchizedek are also kings. Therefore, we will reign with Christ, with our Melchizedek, the King of the universe and, therefore, King of the Earth also, we will reign with Him because we are His children and therefore we are kings too. That is the Government Order for the Millennial Kingdom.
And notice why we have had to pass through this Earth: so that Melchizedek may make intercession for us in Heaven, in the Temple of God that is in Heaven, and thus we may be redeemed; that is why Christ has been doing His Work as High Priest: for our reconciliation with God.
We had to come to this planet Earth, and we have come; and although we have come in a mortal, corruptible and temporary body, Jesus Christ has been in Heaven, in the Temple of God in Heaven, making intercession for all of us; and thus reconciling us with God.
We belong to a Heavenly Priestly Order and also to a Heavenly Government Order as well; and we are kings and we are priests of the Order of Melchizedek.
Now, we have seen what is the order that will be established in the Millennial Kingdom: the Order of Melchizedek; and all those redeemed by the Blood of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ belong to that order.
We are currently kings, because He has made us kings, and we are priests; and all this moves in the spiritual field at the present time, but for the Millennial Kingdom it will also be physically, literally, in function.
And then everything in the Millennial Kingdom of Christ will be subject to Christ our Melchizedek, the High Priest of the Temple that is in Heaven and also the King of the Heavens and Earth; it will be subject to Christ and His children, who are also kings and priests; because what He is, He has also done it for us.
He has made us what He is: He is King, He has made us kings; He is High Priest, He has made us priests.
Remember that the priests descendants of Aaron were the ones who helped the high priest, they were the ones who worked in the temple established on Earth. And so it is for the Temple of God: we belong to the Priestly Order of the Temple that is in Heaven.
And that is reflected in the spiritual Temple of Jesus Christ, which is His Church, where we minister as priests of the Order of Melchizedek; and where Jesus Christ Himself, our Melchizedek, has been manifested in Holy Spirit from stage to stage, from age to age, ministering; just as the high priest ministered both in the outer court, as well as in the holy place, and once a year (in other words, one day in the year) he ministered in the most holy place.
And now, Christ in His Church, which is His spiritual Temple, see how from stage to stage He has been ministering through His manifestation through His messengers; and with Him, the priests, the sons and daughters of God, have been working in the Work of Jesus Christ, united with Jesus Christ in the Work relevant to each age.
So we can see that just as God gave good helpers to the high priest Aaron (who were his sons), the High Priest of the Temple that is in Heaven (our beloved Lord Jesus Christ) God has given Him good helpers, which are all those redeemed by the Blood of Jesus Christ, who have been made priests of God, and kings as well. And He has given Him good helpers for the glorious Millennial Kingdom as well: He has given Him kings as well (redeemed by the Blood of Jesus Christ) for that glorious Kingdom that will rule over the Hebrew people and over the entire planet Earth, over all nations.
Now we can see this mystery of these kings and priests of God in the last days.
See how in the last days, which began since Jesus Christ was 4 to 7 years old… because the last days before God are the last millenniums for the human beings, which are fifth millennium, sixth millennium and seventh millennium, since one day before the Lord is as a thousand years for the human beings1
And now, the last days before God are the last millenniums, the last three millenniums, which are fifth millennium, sixth millennium and seventh millennium. That is why Saint Paul and Saint Peter say that God spoke through Jesus Christ in the last days2
And the priests of the Order of Melchizedek are still ministering in the House of Jesus Christ, in the Church of Jesus Christ, making known to the human beings the good news of God, making known all these divine virtues that have been manifested both in the First Coming of Christ and in all these stages or ages of the Church of Jesus Christ, plus those that He manifests in this end time.
In charge of that New Priestly Order, which is the Heavenly Priestly Order of Melchizedek, is in charge of ministering all spiritual goods, to be ministered, which are being ministered by that Heavenly Priestly Order, which are the members of the Church of Jesus Christ.
Therefore, no one else has the right to minister heavenly goods but the sons and daughters of Melchizedek, who are washed by the Blood of Christ and made priests and kings of the Order of Melchizedek.
Therefore, the commission for the preaching of the Gospel, who was it given to? To the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, because it is the one that has the heavenly Priestly Order to minister spiritual things to the human race.
Now, we have seen that from stage to stage, a group of priests have been working with Christ, the High Priest, in the Work of God; just as in the midst of the Hebrew people the priests had their time to work in the temple.
And now, notice, all the work that the priests performed was synchronized with the work of the high priest; it had to be according to the work that the high priest performed, because he is the head of that priestly order. And so it is in the Priestly Order of Heaven or Heavenly, of the Temple that is in Heaven.
Each angel messenger in each stage had his time, to minister with Melchizedek, the High Priest of the Temple that is in Heaven. And now, for the Last Day…
Notice, we can see that during the last days they have been ministering with the High Priest Melchizedek, the priests who have been ministering in each age.
And now, we can see that the manifestation of Jesus Christ in Holy Spirit in each angel messenger was a manifestation of Melchizedek, the High Priest; and with Him were the helpers, the priests who worked with Christ in the Work for each age.
And for this end time, Christ, the High Priest of the heavenly Temple, our Melchizedek, ministers in this Last Day just as He ministered in the seven stages or ages of the gentile Church, which pertain to the Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Christ, which was represented in the holy place of the temple that Solomon built and the tabernacle that Moses built.
And now, for this end time, Christ ministers, the High Priest ministers in His spiritual Temple, in Holy Spirit, through His manifestation for the Last Day through His Angel Messenger, in the construction of the Most Holy Place of His Temple and in the ministration of spiritual things relevant to this Last Day in the spiritual Temple of Christ, in the Most Holy Place; so that in the Work of Reconciliation that Christ is doing in Heaven for all His children, all His House, all His Family, just as we have obtained spiritual reconciliation with God and we have obtained the new body, the theophanic body, in other words, that new spirit (He said He would give us a new spirit and a new heart3), He has also promised to give us a new body.
And now, for the physical reconciliation, the reconciliation of the body, where we will obtain the redemption of the body, where we will obtain the transformation, and therefore the new body, Christ enters the Most Holy Place of His spiritual Temple (in other words, of His Church) and ministers there through His Angel Messenger; and along with His Angel Messenger, notice, there will be all the elect of God (who are also priests) working in the Work for the Last Day; but the one who ministers that which pertains to the Most Holy Place, and the one who does the Work for that stage of the Most Holy Place so that the resurrection of the dead in Christ and the transformation of us who are alive may come, is Christ, our Melchizedek.
And He ministers in the stage of the Most Holy Place of His spiritual Temple, and gives us the faith, the revelation, to be changed and raptured in this end time; He ministers to us the divine revelation of the seven thunders of Revelation, chapter 10, which is the divine revelation of the Seventh Seal, the divine revelation 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 that is the revelation that will cause the dead in Christ to be resurrected in eternal bodies and we who are alive will be transformed.
Now, Christ, notice, is in Heaven, in the Most Holy Place of the Temple that is in Heaven; there is His glorified body, which was resurrected; but Jesus Christ has been in the midst of His Church in Holy Spirit, ministering through His angel messengers in the Holy Place, and in this end time He ministers in the Most Holy Place through human flesh.
And with the work that He will be doing in the Most Holy Place of His spiritual Temple, all His work will be completed, all His labor, and the spiritual Temple of Christ will be standing, which is His Church, and they are also the priests of the Order of Melchizedek, children of our Melchizedek, children of Jesus Christ through the new birth.
And now, you see how the children of Jesus Christ, those redeemed by the Blood of Christ, which have been born again, being children of the second Adam, therefore they are priests too, of a new order that will be working on Earth physically as well during the Millennial Kingdom.
From Christ until now, that Order has been functioning spiritually, since the Day of Pentecost until now, spiritually, ministering the spiritual things of Christ, of God; but for the Millennial Kingdom, notice, everything of the Government of Christ in the religious field belongs to the Order of Melchizedek, to which belong all believers in Christ washed with the Blood of Christ and filled with the Spirit of Christ, which have obtained the new birth and have been born as kings and priests in the Kingdom of God, as children of Melchizedek, the Priest and King of Heaven; who appeared to Abraham and gave Him bread and wine4
That is why He, in this end time, being the Word, He will give us of Himself: He will give us His Word, and we will soon obtain our transformation; because that Word that He will give us and will be made flesh in us, will cause us to be transformed, just as the Word that Abraham and Sarah had received worked in them, and their rejuvenation to have the promised son came around that Word.
And around the Word that He gives us at this time, our transformation will materialize, which He has promised; in other words, all those who will be transformed will have received that Word, also called the Great Voice of Trumpet5 or Trumpet of God6. And that is how Christ ministers for us in the Most Holy Place what we need to be changed and taken with Christ to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.
And this is so because He has washed us from our sins with His precious Blood, and He has made us kings and priests for our God; kings… and we reign spiritually, but in the Millennial Kingdom we will literally reign as kings; and as priests we will minister everything that has to do with the religious aspect.
“And in that day the Lord shall be one, and His Name one.7”
Now, since it will be in the hands of the priests descendants of Melchizedek (who are those redeemed by the Blood of Christ), there will be only one way to believe in God. In other words, there will not be a bunch of religions, each one with its different ways of interpreting the Bible and believing in God, each one with its forms or its intellectual conceptions of who God is, how God is and how many people God is.
In Zechariah it tells us: “And in that day the Lord will be one, and His Name will be one.” In other words, the teaching will be monotheistic: one God; the teaching of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one.8” Thus begin the ten commandments. That is why when they asked the Lord Jesus Christ: “Tell us which is the first commandment,” Jesus began by saying: “Hear, O Israel; the Lord our God is one. And you shall love the Lord our God with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. And the second commandment is like unto this, which is: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.9”
Now we can see the religious teaching that will take place during the Millennial Kingdom; and it will be in the hands of the priests of Christ, who are those redeemed with the Blood of Jesus Christ; and all other beliefs will be eliminated.
And not only that, but the Scripture says in Zechariah… let’s see: in chapter 14, verse 8 and on, it says:
“And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.
And the Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord, and his name one.”
He will be King over all the Earth, because He will be reigning as King of kings and Lord of lords. There is also the promise of Christ in Revelation, chapter 3, verse 21, where it says:
“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.”
Just as Christ has sat with His Father in the heavenly Throne, in the Temple that is in Heaven, now He has promised to sit the Overcomer on His Throne.
And which one is the Throne of Jesus Christ? Well, the Throne of the Father is the one in Heaven, and the Throne of Jesus Christ is the Throne of David, upon which He will be reigning during that Millennial Kingdom.
That was what the Archangel Gabriel spoke to the virgin Mary when He said: in chapter 1, verse 30 and on, where it says [Luke]:
“And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.
And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus.
He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:
And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.”
There we have the Throne of Jesus Christ; it is the Throne of David, which the Archangel Gabriel says here that God will give Him. And that is the Throne to which Christ refers when He says:
“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.”
Now see how the same thing God has done with Jesus is what Jesus does with the Overcomer in His Kingdom. In the Kingdom of Jesus Christ, that Millennial Kingdom, Jesus Christ does with the Overcomer the same thing that the Father has done with Jesus by sitting Him on His Throne.
Jesus Christ will also give Him authority over the nations, “and he will rule them with a rod of iron; (He says) as I have received of my Father,” as Jesus received authority over all nations, peoples and tongues; and He said10: “All authority is given to me in Heaven and on Earth.”
And now Christ will give authority to the Overcomer, He will give him authority over the nations: “and he will rule them with a rod of iron, and they shall be broken to pieces like a potter’s vessel; even as I received of my Father.” Revelation, chapter 2, verses 26 to 28.
Let’s read it directly here so that you have it just as it was said by Jesus. Chapter 2, verse 26 to 28, it says:
“And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end…”
He who keeps the works of Christ until when? Until the end, until the end of time. The messenger who will be in that time will be the Overcomer, and he will be the one who will obtain the materialization of these promises in him.
“…to him will I give power over the nations:
And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.”
You see, the same authority that He has received from the Father, He now gives it to the Overcomer; because through the Overcomer, through His faithful and wise servant, who will be at the Last Day ministering in the House of God, through whom Christ will be manifested in Holy Spirit…; and Christ will be manifested in Holy Spirit as Melchizedek, as High Priest ministering in the Last Day in the Age of the Cornerstone, which is the Age of the Most Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Christ.
Therefore, the authority that Christ has received from the Father will be manifested through the faithful and wise servant, through the instrument that Christ will have in the Last Day, which will be His Angel Messenger. “As I have received of my Father” (Christ says), He will give authority over all nations to the Overcomer.
“And I will give him the morning star.”
And what is the Morning Star? In Revelation, chapter 22, verse 16, it says:
“I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.”
These attributes of Christ, notice, are given and manifested through the Overcomer. It says: “To him that overcomes, I will give the bright and Morning Star.”
Therefore, the bright and Morning Star, which is Christ, will be manifested as the bright and Morning Star through the Overcomer; and He will also be manifested as the root and the offspring of David through the Overcomer.
And that is why Christ, our Melchizedek, ministers through His Angel Messenger in the Last Day in the Age of the Cornerstone, in other words, in the Most Holy Place of His spiritual Temple, and manifests these attributes of Jesus Christ through His Angel Messenger in the Last Day.
And the elect of God, the Church of Jesus Christ, will see the bright and Morning Star shining in the Last Day, in the Age of the Cornerstone, through His Angel Messenger; and they will also see the root and the offspring of David manifested through His Angel Messenger; because they will be seeing Christ in Holy Spirit manifested in His Angel Messenger, manifesting those attributes of the Lord Jesus Christ. And the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ will see him and the Hebrew people will also see him.
But the Angel of Jesus Christ is not the Lord Jesus Christ; he is only the instrument of Jesus Christ for those manifestations of Jesus Christ promised for this Last Day, in the spiritual Temple of Christ, which is His Church, in the part of the Most Holy Place of that spiritual Temple.
Now remember that the high priest ministered in the outer court, he ministered in the holy place and he also ministered in the most holy place. And then, when he was coming out of the most holy place, he went into the holy place and there he ministered as well, when he was already coming out of the most holy place; where —in the holy place— he placed of the blood of atonement upon the horns of the altar of incense11, and so on; and he used of that blood of atonement when he came out of the most holy place, he used in the holy place, and then he continued coming out.
In other words, the leftover blood was used. And that blood does what? Redeem. So we can see that Christ will do something great in this end time, after He has finished His Work in the Most Holy Place.
That is why then they have an opportunity, after Christ works with His elect, the Hebrew people have an opportunity and the rest of the virgins have an opportunity.
The five virgins, for those belong to the Most Holy Place in the Last Day; but the other virgins, who did not have oil in their lamps, which represent the rest of Christianity or the Christianity that did not have the Holy Spirit… but they will be willing to give their lives for Christ, and will be willing to die in that squeeze and then persecution that will come in this end time, where the antichrist, the beast, will persecute the rest of the believers in Christ but did not have the Holy Spirit; although they thought they had it, but they did not.
Then, in the end, they realize that they did not have It; they come looking for oil, they come looking for the Holy Spirit, but the wise virgins say that they should buy some so that they don’t lack it, as well as the foolish virgins12
Now we can see that there will be a blessing for the Hebrew people when Christ has completed the number of His elect in the Mystical Body, in His Church; and there will be a full manifestation of God, both in the Most Holy Place as well as in the Holy Place, and in the Outer Court as well; because there will be people who, although they do not belong to the Most Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Christ (because only the kings and priests of the Last Day belong to that place), but there will be thousands or millions of people who will be in the Outer Court; because they were not of the seven stages, they were not of the group of the seven stages, therefore, there will be room in the Outer Court for the rest of the human beings.
That is the place that God extends, and that is where the foolish virgins will enter. And that is why in the book of Revelation, chapter 7, verses 8 to 17, that multitude appears there. Verses 9 to 17, it says, of Revelation, chapter 7:
“After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number (that is, they are millions), of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues (in other words, they are not Hebrews, because they are from all peoples, nations, tribe and tongue), stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,
Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.”
Those are the foolish virgins, who come out of the great tribulation; they have to die during the great tribulation because they did not have oil in their lamps, in other words, they did not have the Holy Spirit: they had not been born again. It says:
“Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them (by extending His Tabernacle, they come to have part in the Outer Court of the Tabernacle of God).
They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.”
This is the same group that appears in Revelation, chapter 15; let’s see, verse 1 and on, it says:
“And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God.
And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire…”
A sea of glass mixed with fire. Where was the brazen sea in the tabernacle that Moses built and the temple that Solomon built? In the outer court. And now, look here:
“And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.”
Where are they? They are in the Outer Court. They don’t belong in the Holy Place or the Most Holy Place.
“And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.”
How do they know Him? They recognize Him as the King of saints, they recognize Him as the King of kings and Lord of lords. That is the revelation that the foolish virgins will obtain; and they will die during the great tribulation by giving their lives, but they will not bow down to the beast and to the image of the beast, but will remain faithful to God.
“Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.”
And there we can see what will become of the group of foolish virgins, who had no oil in their lamps: they will have to go through the great tribulation. But they, after everything is over, at the end of the Millennial Kingdom will resurrect and will be judged and will enter into eternal life.
Now, we can see all this Divine Program and how it has been moving from stage to stage; and how from stage to stage the sons and daughters of God have been entering the Program of Redemption, whose names are written in Heaven, in the Lamb’s Book of Life, and have been washed with the Blood of Christ: They have believed in Christ as their Savior, have washed their sins in the Blood of Christ and have received His Holy Spirit; and thus they have been born again; and they have been born as kings and priests in the Kingdom of God, because He has made us kings and priests for our God; not of the Levitical order, not of the order of Aaron, but of the Order of Melchizedek, of the Order of the High Priest of the Temple that is in Heaven.
And for the Millennial Kingdom, everything that will be taking place on this planet Earth —whether in the Government aspect, politics, and religious aspect— will be in the hands of Melchizedek and His children.
He is the High Priest of the Temple that is in Heaven, and His children are also priests, with Christ; and they are the ones who work with Christ in all religious matters, and they are the ones who work with Christ also in all Government matters, in all the political aspect of that glorious Millennial Kingdom that Christ will have on this planet Earth, and that Kingdom will be over the Hebrew people and over all nations. Everything will be subject to that Kingdom.
And from Jerusalem shall go forth all laws to be established in all nations; “for out of Jerusalem shall go forth the Law13” for all nations, both political and religious. They are the laws of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ.
That is why, just as through the ministry of Moses God established the laws for the Hebrew people, the ministry of Moses and Elijah will be manifested on Earth because God will establish the laws (for and of His Kingdom) for the Hebrew people and for all nations, in that glorious Messianic Kingdom of a thousand years.
Now, we have seen this mystery of THE KINGS AND PRIESTS OF GOD IN THE LAST DAYS.
Everything has been moving in the spiritual field, because the kings and priests of God of the Last Day have received the eternal theophanic body, which Christ has given us by believing in Christ as our Savior and washing our sins in the Blood of Christ and receiving His Holy Spirit; and thus He has given us the theophanic body of the sixth dimension.
And that is why a spiritual work has been carried out since the Day of Pentecost until now; but soon He will give us the physical and eternal body, and we will be fully in the image and likeness of Jesus Christ physically too, with a glorified body; and then in the physical part we will also be having all the work that will be carried out here on Earth: all of them will be under the direction, under the government of Christ and His Church, Christ and His kings and priests, which He has done by washing us in His Blood.
And now, watch how these kings and priests are being prepared from stage to stage for that glorious Millennial Kingdom, where we will also physically rule as kings and minister as priests.
And from Earth, from that spiritual Temple (which is His Church), everything will be ministered, and everything will be communicated to the Temple of God in Heaven and the Kingdom of God in Heaven. In other words, through the spiritual Temple, which is the Church of Jesus Christ here on Earth during the Millennial Kingdom, everything from the Temple of God of Heaven will be ministered.
Just as during the time of the tabernacle that Moses built and the temple that Solomon built, and all that time of the Old Testament, all heavenly things were ministered through the earthly temple that the Hebrew people had.
See why Moses had to raise that tabernacle; and God spoke to Moses inside that tabernacle, from the most holy place, from the mercy seat, from where God manifested Himself, revealed Himself to Moses, and spoke to him everything that God wanted Moses to make known to the Hebrew people. “From there (God says) I will manifest Myself to you, and I will tell you all that you have to say to the Hebrew people.” That is in the book of Exodus, chapter 25.
Now see how God shows here that Moses could enter the temple, the most holy place, at any time, but the high priest could not. It says chapter 25, verse 21 to 22:
“And thou shalt put the mercy seat above upon the ark; and in the ark thou shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee.
And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubims which are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel.”
Now we can see that this is the most important place in the temple: the mercy seat, which is upon the ark of the covenant. In other words, the ark of the covenant with the mercy seat also has the two golden cherubim, and in the midst of the two golden cherubim there is the presence of God.
We have reached the greatest and most glorious time of all times, the time of the Most Holy Place in the spiritual Temple of Christ. And the two golden cherubim there, over the most holy place, pertain to the ministries of Moses and Elijah; and from the midst of those two ministries promised for the Last Day will be that the glory of God, the glory of Jesus Christ will be manifested in all His fullness.
From there is that God will manifest Himself in the midst of His Church in this end time; and there will be the glory of Jesus Christ manifested. Of which we will speak in the next activity, since the next activity has as its topic… let’s see, the subject of the next activity is: “THE COMING OF THE LORD WITH THE CLOUDS.” That will be the topic that we will be seeing in the next activity: “THE COMING OF THE LORD WITH THE CLOUDS.”
Remember that all these things, all these revelations promised to be made known to the children of God in the Last Day, are ministered in the Most Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Christ through the Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ in Holy Spirit through His Angel Messenger; just as the revelations for each age of the gentile Church were ministered by the Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ in Holy Spirit in the angel messenger of each age, and the Work of Christ was carried out in each age.
And the Work of Christ for the Age of the Most Holy Place of His spiritual Temple, which is the Age of the Cornerstone, notice, it will be carried out by Jesus Christ in Holy Spirit through His Angel Messenger, making known to us all these things that must happen soon, in the stage of the Most Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Jesus Christ, where we have been called and placed in this Last Day.
We have seen our topic for this occasion: “THE KINGS AND PRIESTS OF GOD IN THE LAST DAYS.”
We have seen them in these two thousand years that have passed, and they are the ones redeemed by the Blood of Christ, the members of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ; and now in these days in which we live, where (if we add to the calendar the years it is behind) we are already in the seventh millennium, which is the Last Day before God: and now we look at the kings and priests of God in the Last Day.
And when we look at them, when I see them, I look at them, I see all of you, who have been redeemed by the Blood of Christ, and have been made kings and priests of God, and are living in the Last Day; and are working, ministering in the Work of Christ, taking the Word, taking the Message, making known the good news of Christ for this Last Day, in addition to the good news of the First Coming of Christ.
And now, we can see the kings and priests of God, not only in the last two days that have already passed, but in this Last Day, in this last millennium that has already begun (if we add to the calendar the years it is behind); where there are great blessings for the kings and priests of Jesus Christ, for all those redeemed by the Blood of Jesus Christ; and great things will be ministered by the priests of Jesus Christ, the priests of the Order of Melchizedek, who work and minister with Christ, the High Priest of the Temple that is in Heaven.
Because we are Christ’s collaborators, Saint Paul tells us, God’s collaborators14
Therefore, everything that has to do with politics will be in the hands of Christ as King and His children as kings; and everything that has to do with religion will be in the hands of Christ as High Priest (which is Melchizedek) and all priests, which are the children of King Melchizedek, who have been made priests by Christ by being redeemed with the Blood of Christ.
Now notice that everything that moves during the Millennial Kingdom will be linked to Christ and to us. Nothing will move without the approval of Jesus Christ and His redeemed; because they are THE KINGS AND PRIESTS OF GOD IN THE LAST DAYS.
May the blessings of Jesus Christ, the Angel of the Covenant, be upon all of you and upon me too; and may we all soon be changed along with the dead in Christ who will resurrect in eternal bodies, and be taken to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. And may the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom upon this Earth be soon delivered to the saints of the Most High, as God tells us through the prophet Daniel in chapter 7, verse 18:
“But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever.”
May all this materialize soon for each of you and for me too. In the Eternal Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen and amen.
We have seen the great blessing that God has given to all of us; and we did not know that the blessing was so great, but now we know.
So in the afternoon, or in the next activity, we will already have the topic that we have announced; the topic that we have announced (let’s see) is “THE COMING OF THE LORD WITH THE CLOUDS.” And there we will be covering from the angle of the Coming of the Lord in the clouds, we will be covering all that field, to see there the blessings that there are for each of you and for me too.
Sometimes we think that the story of Christ is only since He was born in Bethlehem of Judea until He was crucified; but the story of Christ before that and the story of Christ after He was crucified and died and resurrected…, and since He died, resurrected and ascended to Heaven, He already has two thousand years of history; plus the 33 years; plus before that, which is endless.
In other words, the history of Christ is not only 33 years; because: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word was made flesh.15”
And now, the history of Christ before He became flesh, the history of the Word before He became flesh; and the history of the Word when He became flesh; and the history of the Word after He died, resurrected and ascended to Heaven; in other words, we have many thousands of years or millions of years, of Christ’s history.
Well, now let’s always ask to hear the story of Christ.
There is a verse there, for this end time. It says: “I Jesus…” [Those present continue: “…have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches.”] So he will be making Christ’s history known to us very, very clearly.
Here again our beloved brother and friend, the Reverend Miguel Bermudez Marin, to continue.
May God continue to bless you all; and we will see each other in the next activity, where we will have the topic: “THE COMING OF THE LORD WITH THE CLOUDS.”
May God continue to bless you all.
