Good afternoon, beloved friends and brethren present. It is a great blessing for me to be with you here in this place, after 21 years or so, here in this area, in this territory.
And I don’t know how many of you —of those who are here— were here at that time… How many were here when I came in (seventy what was it?) 78? You have multiplied already… And you have surely multiplied in children too, right?
So, look, we started seeing each other on that date here, and look, we are still seeing each other in these mortal bodies; and when we have the new body we will see each other here for about 30 or 40 days; and then we will continue to see each other at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, and then in the Millennium, and then for all eternity.
So we begin to see each other to continue seeing each other forever, for all eternity. We belong to a family, and it is a heavenly Family.
Some people, when they hear about the kings, let’s say, the kings of England, the kings of Spain, the kings of Scotland, the kings of all those nations; and when they read about those nations also in past times, where almost all the nations had kings, and also the Hebrew people, and king David and king Solomon; look, many people in their hearts think: “I would like to be a son (or if it is a girl or a lady: ’I would like to be a daughter’) of a king.”
But the good news for all of us is that we are children of a king; of a king, but not of a temporary king; because look, all those kings died. And we are children of an eternal King: of the King of kings and Lord of lords!, to live with Him for all eternity as kings and priests in His glorious Kingdom.
So it is even more than we can imagine, and than we can desire in our soul, the blessing that we have. But as normal men and normal women, we have come in these mortal bodies to this planet Earth to live in a trial stage.
And now, notice, we have come here, and we don’t look like kings, right? We don’t have a crown, we don’t have millions of dollars or millions of pesos and large properties, but we have rather a normal economic condition here: some of the poor class, some of the middle class, and very few of the rich class. And a normal education too; some have very little education, but that doesn’t take away from the position they have as sons and daughters of God, as kings and priests with Christ.
And notice, we have come to this planet Earth to be tested, to go through this earthly stage…; which is a unique experience: we will never again have a mortal, corruptible, temporary body. But in this body we have come to be tested and to —being in these bodies— show from the depths of our soul that we love God, we love Christ, and we serve Him, it doesn’t matter that we are in these mortal bodies; we serve Christ in good times but also in bad times; we serve Christ no matter what problems we have in our life.
Remember that God passed the Hebrew people through the wilderness to test them and to let what was inside of their heart out: whether they would serve God or not1. And now we are going through this earthly life, as the Hebrew people went through the wilderness.
And now, we showing on this Earth and in these mortal bodies that we love Christ and serve Him all the days of our life, with that we are showing that we serve Him by being in these mortal and temporary bodies, and that we will also serve Him by being in the eternal and glorified body. And we will serve Him for all eternity!
And now, for this occasion we have a subject, which, well it has been prepared by Miguel here, and by Jose Nolasco (pastor). It says… First they had: “144,000 JEWS STANDING BEFORE THE SON OF MAN,” but it was fixed with: “144,000 JEWS WITH THE ETERNAL NAME OF GOD ON THEIR FOREHEADS”; but we can fix it a little more, because if we say that they are 144.000 Jews, then the rest of Israel is out; for those of the tribe of Judah are the Jews; though they called them all Jews, because of Nebuchadnezzar when he took many out of the tribe of Judah into captivity2, and then called all of the Hebrews “Jews”; but in reality…
For example, the Ephraimites are of the tribe of Ephraim, and those of the tribe of Manasseh are the Manassehites, and so on; and those of the tribe of Benjamin are the Benjaminites; and those of the tribe of Judah, the Jews.
And now, to make the subject clearer, let’s put: “THE LAMB WITH THE 144,000 HEBREWS ON MOUNT ZION.” And when it is said “the Hebrews”, all the tribes are there, from all the tribes of Israel. And there, in those 144,000 Hebrews, 12,000 from each tribe enter; from each tribe of those that are mentioned there in chapter 7 of Revelation.
And now let’s see here, in Revelation, chapter 14, what it tells us about those 144,000 Hebrews; it says:
“And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads.
And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps:
And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.
These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.
And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.
And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,
Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.”
May God bless our souls with His Word and allow us to understand It.
Our subject for this occasion is “THE LAMB WITH THE 144,000 HEBREWS ON MOUNT ZION.”
In order to understand this, our subject, we have to know a few very important things in relation to this subject; for example, we have to (let’s list some things):
- We have to know what Mount Zion is.
- Then we have to know who is the one who makes the calling.
- We have to know who the 144,000 are.
And we need to know some other things; but now we are going to see (of these three things) the one who does the calling. In Revelation, chapter 7, verse 2 and, says:
“And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,
Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand (and it continues to enumerate 12,000 sealed of each tribe).”
We have seen who is calling those 144,000 Hebrews: it is this Angel that comes with the Seal of the living God, it is the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ anointed with the Holy Spirit, it is the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ with the Holy Spirit, with the Seal of the living God; Christ comes in him manifested in Holy Spirit; the Word comes, the Word manifested in human flesh; to call 144,000 from among the Hebrews, 12,000 from each tribe.
Now, notice, they are called to be where? Upon Mount Zion; they are found on Mount Zion with the Lamb. The Lamb is Christ, who changes from Lamb to Lion of the tribe of Judah.
And now, Christ in His manifestation will be on Mount Zion in the Last Day. He has been on Mount Zion from stage to stage, from age to age. Let’s see which is Mount Zion, so that we have a clear picture of everything that contains the message for this occasion.
Let’s read in the book of Quotations, where the Reverend William Branham speaks to us in relation to Mount Zion. Let’s see… on page 133 of the book of Quotations, let’s see here what the Reverend William Branham tells us in relation to Mount Zion. Page 133, verse 1185, where there is an excerpt of the message “The future home of the heavenly Bridegroom and the earthly Bride” (that is, the future home of the Bride), it says3:
“Wherein the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughter of Zion, (remember, that’s always the Bride, see)…and shall have purified the blood of Jerusalem (that’s the remnant of the Jews, plus the Bride, see).”
When it is spoken of Jerusalem: “…have purified the blood of Jerusalem”, it is the remnant of the Jews, that is, 144,000 Hebrews; and when it is spoken of “have washed away the filth of the daughter of Zion”, that is the Church-Bride of the Lord Jesus Christ. In other words, when one says “Zion,” “he has washed away the filth of Zion,” or “of the daughters of Zion,” he is speaking of the Church; and when one speaks that “have purified the blood of Jerusalem”, one is speaking of the Hebrews, one is speaking of those 144,000 Hebrews here.
And now, let’s continue to see throughout the Scripture what is related to Zion. In many occasions “Jerusalem” also refers to the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Now let’s see what Saint Paul says to the Hebrews, chapter 12, verse 18 and on; he says:
“For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched (that is, mount Sinai), and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest…”
In other words, when God was there on mount Sinai, and Moses was there, what was there on the mount was a storm; a storm; and there was fire there upon the mount, there was darkness, gloom and tempest. It says:
“And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words (that is the Voice of God)<em>; which voice they that heard intreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more:
(For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart:
And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:)…”
And if he was like this, frightened and trembling, the messenger, how would the people be?
“And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:)
But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,
To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven…”
The firstborn who are inscribed in Heaven are the members of the Church of Jesus Christ; they are the believers in Christ who have received the Spirit of Christ and have therefore been born again.
“… and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,
And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.”
Now look at what we have come to: we have come to Mount Zion, the heavenly Jerusalem; we have come to “an innumerable company of angels” and “to the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven…”, are inscribed or written in Heaven, in the Lamb’s Book of Life, since before the foundation of the world. That is the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, that is the spiritual Mount Zion.
And now, in Galatians, chapter 4…
[A little dunkey is heard braying –Editor]
If it’s a little donkey… would it be a…? Listen… he says: “a, e, i, o, u,” in his way. That is why in school they tell kids: “a, e, i, o, u, the donkey knows more than you.” If you lend him a good ear when a little donkey like that… He is like that spelling, I mean, what he is doing is saying “a, e, i, o, u”. Those are the what?, the vowels? The vowels; but that is where he stayed, that is all he knows. The parrots learn; they teach them, they learn, and then they talk a little bit more. The serpent used to speak, but because of the curse it was left mute.
But, notice, God has allowed animals to speak some words, like parrots, parakeets and… macaws too, right?, or some birds like that. And among the animals, some say a word or two, that is what they say. The little donkey, the little donkeys say the vowels there, but they stay there all the time and don’t progress.
Now, let’s see here in Galatians, chapter 4…
We took advantage of the fact that the little donkey was like this, to say this about why in school they say: “a, e, i, o, u, the donkey knows more than you”; although sometimes not even the teachers themselves know why they say it, but you have heard why.
Now let’s see in Galatians, chapter 4, verse 22 and on, it says:
“For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman.
But he who was of the bondwoman (that is, Ishmael) was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise (in other words, Isaac was born by the promise, through Sarah).
Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar (he received the Law on mount Sinai).
For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.
But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.
For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband.
Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.
But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.
Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.
So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.”
Now see how, in this typology, the Hebrew people appears as a nation under the Law and the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ under the Grace. And the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, as we read in Hebrews, chapter 12, verse 20 and on, is represented in Zion.
And now, let’s see what the prophet Isaiah says, speaking to us in chapter 59, verses… Chapter 59, verses 19 and on, he says:
“So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.”
This is for this end time, where the enemy, the antichrist, the man of sin, in whom the devil will be incarnate, will rise against Christ and against His Church and against the Hebrew people; but it says… and he will rise with the armies of the ten kings who will give their power and authority to the beast:
“…the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.
And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the Lord.
As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the Lord; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed, saith the Lord, from henceforth and for ever.”
And now let’s see what Saint Paul explains in Romans, chapter 11, in relation to that passage. There in that passage it says that the Deliverer will come to Zion; the Deliverer will come to Zion, the Deliverer who will take away ungodliness from Jacob; and that will be when He takes away their sins, the sins of the Hebrew people.
In Romans, chapter 11, verse 25 and on, it speaks to us referring to that passage of Isaiah, and it says:
“For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer…”
And now, where does the Deliverer come from for the Hebrew people? From Zion; and Zion is the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. Zion in Israel typifies —in spiritual terms— the Church of Jesus Christ.
“… There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.
As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the father’s sakes.
For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.”
And there, 144,000 Hebrews will be called and gathered together, and they will obtain forgiveness of their sins, and they will be sealed with the Seal of the living God; and thus they will be sealed in their foreheads, and they will have the revelation of the Eternal Name of God and New Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Name of the Lamb.
That is why it says that the Angel comes to call and gather 144,000 Hebrews and seal them with the Seal of the living God, seal them in their foreheads; that is in Revelation, chapter 7, verses 2 and on. And in Revelation, chapter 14, they already appear upon Mount Zion, sealed in their foreheads: they appear with the Name of the Lamb and the Name of His Father written on their foreheads; and they sing a New Song.
Now, see this here; it says [Revelation 14:2]:
“And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps:
And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.”
And who then is singing that New Song? In Revelation, chapter 5, verses 8 and on, those who are singing that New Song in Heaven appear; it says:
“And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.
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.”
Who are those who sing that New Song in Heaven? The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, those who have been redeemed with the Blood of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ.
And that is the Song that 144,000 Hebrews are going to learn; because the Message will go from God’s elect of the Last Day to the Hebrew people, and they will have that New Song; because the Hebrew people has been kept under the Law. But look, in this end time the Hebrew people will be converted to Christ, 144,000 Hebrews, and they will learn the New Song, and they will proclaim that New Song.
In that New Song it is proclaimed that He has washed us with His precious Blood, “He has redeemed us unto our God from every people, kindred and nation, and has made us unto our God kings and priests, and we will reign with Christ for the Millennium and for all eternity.” All these things will be made known to the Hebrew people, and they will have that New Song.
Now, you see how simple everything is.
That New Song, only those 144,000 say that they are the ones that will learn it. It says there:
“… and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.”
In other words, even the rest of the Hebrew people will not be able to learn that Song, nor the people who have not received Christ as their Savior; but only the ones redeemed by the Blood of Christ are the ones that have that New Song; and then the 144,000 Hebrews learn it, which will be called and gathered together in this end time, from Israel (in other words, from the entire Hebrew people), 12,000 from each tribe. Although there are two tribes —Dan and Ephraim— that do not appear; but God does not lose anything; but they do not appear as a tribe; but the blessing of Ephraim passed onto the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.
So do not worry, because the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ will be living in the midst of the Hebrew people; and since she has the Birthright Blessing, which was cast upon Ephraim, the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, the redeemed with the Blood of Christ, will be the ones that will have the highest position in the midst of the Hebrew people; for they will be the people who will be with immortal bodies, and they will be in the image and likeness of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ, and they will be the kings and priests in the midst of the Hebrew people and in the midst of the entire planet Earth; and we will reign with Christ for a thousand years and then for all eternity as kings and priests on this planet Earth; and even that reign will extend to the entire universe, but you have to start somewhere.
Now we can see who are those 144,000 Hebrews, we can see who is calling them: it is Christ through His Angel Messenger, it is the Angel of the Covenant (who called the Hebrew people through Moses and brought them out of Egypt); now He returns in the Last Day, and through His Angel Messenger He calls and gathers 144,000 Hebrews.
And Mount Zion: we have seen that it is the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. They are called and gathered in the Age of the Cornerstone, which is an age that is above the seven ages of the gentile Church: it is the one that crowns, it is the one that crowns those seven ages, it is the one that crowns the Mystical Body of Christ; because the Age of the Cornerstone is the age of the Second Coming of Christ, it is the Golden Age of the Church of Jesus Christ.
The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ began with Hebrews, there on the Day of Pentecost; even the First Coming of Christ was in the midst of Hebrews, and His disciples were Hebrews. And the Church began on the Day of Pentecost with Hebrews, but then Christ turned to the gentiles, and the Door was opened to the gentiles in the house of Cornelius4. And then Christ sent Saint Paul to the gentiles5, and in Asia Minor, notice, God began to call and gather thousands of people from among the gentiles; although some were also Hebrews, but the majority were gentiles.
And so we find that at first the Church of Jesus Christ began with Hebrews, and then continued with Hebrews and gentiles, until later it spread from Asia Minor to Europe, and in Europe they were already very few Hebrews and most of them gentiles; and so it has been from age to age.
Most of them have been gentiles, from age to age… The age that had more Hebrews —of the seven ages — was the first age; and before the first age, well the time of the apostles, which was completely of Hebrews.
Then, when the Church has gone through those seven stages, where He has called from among the gentiles a people for His Name (and also from among the Hebrews, because the Church is composed of gentiles and Hebrews); now, for the end time, the Age of the Cornerstone, which does not pertain, does not belong to any of the seven ages of the gentile Church…; which opens and is fulfilled in Latin America and the Caribbean, and He calls and gathers the elect for the Age of the Cornerstone, from among the Latin American and Caribbean people; that age, notice, is an age for gentiles and Hebrews.
And from among the gentiles, when called and gathered and placed in the Age of the Cornerstone, many have Hebrew roots; for Latin American people, almost all Latin American nations are full of Hebrews, due to the persecutions that came in past centuries, and thousands or millions of Hebrews came to Latin America and the Caribbean.
And then some became Christians, the easy way or the hard way, in those times, because it was a matter of life or death; and then they continued to multiply, they continued to have children, who were raised in Christianity; and even the names were changed: sometimes they changed them themselves and other times the Government or the Catholic church changed them, and marked them with certain names (or in the names or surnames certain letters that identified them). And then, we find that Latin America and the Caribbean is full of Hebrews, in their roots, who do not even know they are Hebrews.
Now look how it’s all been happening. And now we do not know how many, among those who are called in the end time by the Great Voice of Trumpet of the Gospel of the Kingdom, and are placed in the Age of the Cornerstone, we do not know how many are Hebrews or how many are gentiles. And it may be half and half; or it may be the majority Hebrews, of Hebrew roots, who do not even know that they are Hebrews.
But look, God does know what the roots of each of His children are. But the important thing is that our roots are from God, are in God, that we are God’s seed; that is what is important, whether our earthly roots are Hebrew or are gentile; that part does not matter.
Now, in the Age of the Cornerstone is that the intertwining of gentiles to Hebrews is done. It is the only age that is designed by God for that change of age and dispensation, and for the Gospel to return from the gentiles to the Hebrews.
In no other age could such a change of dispensation or age take place, nor could such a change from gentiles to Hebrews take place: for the Gospel to pass from the gentiles to the Hebrews through the ministry of the Two Olive Trees, through the ministry of Moses and Elijah, through the ministry of the Two Anointed Ones who stand before the presence of God. That is why the gentiles will take the Gospel to the Jews just as the Jews brought it to the gentiles.
The Jews through the ministry of Saint Peter taking the Message to the gentiles, to the house of Cornelius, and Paul being sent to the gentiles in Asia Minor: the Gospel passed to the gentiles. Through whose ministries? Peter and Paul.
And now the Gospel will return to the Hebrews through the ministries of Moses and Elijah; and in order to return to the Hebrews, well, the ministries of Moses and Elijah must be among the gentiles.
The ministries of the Two Olive Trees must be in the midst of the gentiles, in the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, in the Age of the Cornerstone. That is the only age that would have the ministries of Moses and Elijah: the ministry of Moses for the second time and the ministry of Elijah for the fifth time, manifested there to make the change from the gentiles to the Hebrews.
That is why Christ, the Mighty Angel that descends from Heaven, the Messenger to Israel, who comes to Israel, first appears to His gentile Church. And there, being in the midst of His gentile Church, manifested through His Angel Messenger, the Hebrews will recognize Him; they will recognize the Angel of the Covenant, the Angel of the Lord manifested in human flesh in His Angel Messenger, and they will say: “This is the one we are waiting for!”, and they will receive Him. And therefore they will be receiving Christ, the Angel of the Covenant in His final manifestation through His Angel Messenger; and it will become the Message of the Gospel to the Hebrew people, the Gospel of the Kingdom.
Just as the Hebrews brought the Gospel of Grace to the gentiles, the gentiles will bring the Gospel of the Kingdom to the Hebrew people. That is in the Age of the Cornerstone, where the change of dispensation is made: the new dispensation is introduced, the dispensational intertwining, with the new dispensational Message; to pass over to the Hebrew people, after being among the gentiles with the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ for a while, which goes up to the Age of the Cornerstone.
Now we can see that it is through the ministry of Moses and Elijah that the Gospel will pass to the Hebrew people, and it will pass from the gentiles to the Hebrews.
See what the Reverend William Branham tells us regarding this great event that is about to take place in this end time…
And even in this end time, since God is working among the gentiles, and is calling and gathering His elect, among those who answer that call there will be a large number of Hebrews, of people who in their roots are Hebrews. And we do not know how far it can go; it can go up to 50%, 60, 70, 80 or 90%, and it can even go higher.
Now look, on page 30 of the book of The Ages, it says6:
“Now, when is the Gospel returning to the Jews? When the day of the Gentiles is finished (that is, when the Dispensation of Grace has ended). The Gospel is ready to go back to the Jews. Oh, if I could just tell you something that is about to happen right in this our day. This great thing that is about to happen will carry over to Revelation 11 and pick up those two witnesses, those two prophets, Moses and Elijah, turning the Gospel back to the Jews.”
Who will take the Gospel back to the Jews? Moses and Elijah, the Two Olive Trees.
That is why thousands of people, thousands of preachers have tried to take the Gospel to the Hebrew people and have not been able to; nor have they heard them; the Hebrew people as a nation have not heard. Even Saint Peter tried and they did not receive him, even Saint Paul tried and didn’t work out either; and even Jesus, notice, He came in the midst of the Hebrew people and they rejected Him.
But for this end time is that God has promised that He will open the spiritual eyes of the Hebrew people, the spiritual blindness will be removed; and that is a miracle that God will do with Israel. Israel, which is spiritually blind, will receive a divine miracle; and God will give them eyes to see, a miracle!: He will open their spiritual eyes, He will give them eyes to see.
And what does “He will give you eyes to see” mean? Eyes represent prophets, seers. He will give them two eyes to see: He will give them Moses and Elijah!; and with those eyes Israel will clearly see the entire Program of God. And those are eyes of a flame of fire, the eyes of the Son of Man as a flame of fire7.
“…will carry over to Revelation 11 and pick up those two witnesses, those two prophets, Moses and Elijah, turning the Gospel back to the Jews. We’re ready for it. Everything is in order. As the Jews brought the message to the Gentiles, even so the Gentiles will take it right back to the Jews, and the Rapture will come.”
And now, it says: “Just as the Jews brought the Gospel to the gentiles…”, the Jews, and that was Peter and Saint Paul; the Gospel passed through two Jews to the gentiles.
And now, the Gospel will pass from the gentiles to the Hebrews through Moses and Elijah; because Moses and Elijah, the Two Olive Trees, will be first in the midst of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, in the Most Holy Place; because it was in the most holy place of the temple that Moses built and of the temple that Solomon built where the two golden cherubim were and where the two cherubim of olive wood covered with gold that king Solomon built were as well.
And it is there, in the Age of the Cornerstone, where the ministries of the Two Olive Trees, of Moses and Elijah, will be manifested; so that after they finish the Work among the gentiles, in the Age of the Cornerstone, in the Church of Jesus Christ, then the call will pass to 144,000 Hebrews and they will be placed where? On Mount Zion, in the Church of Jesus Christ, in the Age of the Cornerstone.
And from there on the call will be to Hebrews, totally, to 144,000 Hebrews who will be on Mount Zion with the Lamb, with Christ in His Second Coming; and they will have His Name and His Father’s Name written on their foreheads, in other words, they will have the revelation of the New Name of Jesus Christ and Eternal Name of God.
In Revelation, chapter 22, verse 4, it says:
“…and they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.”
When it speaks of the forehead, it speaks of divine revelation in the person.
And now, also in Revelation, chapter 2, verse 17, we have a promise for the Overcomer, where it says:
“…and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.”
And the little white Stone coming is the Second Coming of Christ, which comes with a new name. And the Overcomer who will be on Earth and receives it, receives Christ in His Second Coming, receives Him with a new name; and that is the one who receives that white little Stone: the Second Coming of Christ is given to him with a new name; and that will be the only one who will understand that new name written on that white little Stone, written in the Second Coming of Christ.
Also in Revelation, chapter 3, verse 12, it says: “Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the Name of my God, and the Name of the City of my God, which is New Jerusalem, which cometh down out of Heaven from my God, and my New Name.”
And now, in that passage Christ goes beyond what He had gone in Revelation, chapter 2, verse 17, because it gives more light regarding what He will do with the Overcomer, to whom He will give the little white Stone with the New Name; and now it says that He will write upon him the Name of our God and the Name of the City of our God and His New Name.
And now, in the Old Testament… Remember that all of this has to come by a thread of divine thought throughout all of the Scripture. That is why in the Old Testament we find that God changed names.
For example, He changed Sarah’s name to… – to Sarai for Sarah (that is in the Spanish translations; when you go to other languages it may sound different). And to Abram He added an “h” and an “a”; and now Abraham has an “h” and an “a”; in other words, he has three “a’s” and an “h”; in other words, an “h” and an “a” was added, and that changed the name8.
Jacob’s name was changed to Israel: when he won the victory with the Angel wrestling with the Angel, and he won, he obtained a name change; the Angel changed his name, the Angel of the Lord, the Angel of the Covenant9.
Then we find Peter, who received a name change; his name was Simon, and Christ changed his name to Peter. Christ said: “You are Simon, son of Jonah,” and He called him Peter: “And I say that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my Church”10, upon the rock of revelation.
The Church is founded on revelation; revelation: to have the revelation of Christ in every age and in every stage through which the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ passes, and to know, to know Christ, to know who Christ is in every age, manifested from age to age.
And now, to Saul of Tarsus, when he received Christ as his Savior, after having the experience there on the road to Damascus and received Christ as his Savior, his name was changed from Saul to Paul11.
So we can see how these name changes occurred because of a victory that the people who got these name changes had.
And here in Revelation it says that for the Overcomer, for the one who obtains the victory, a new name will be given to him, a new name will be written upon him: the Name of our God and the Name of the City of our God and the New Name of the Lord Jesus Christ; and the little white Stone with the New Name will be given to him; and the bright and Morning Star will be given to him, which is the Second Coming of Christ. He is the one who receives Christ in His Second Coming with a new name.
And now you see how this comes by a thread of thought from the Old Testament.
And if you look in the Old Testament, in chapter 23 of Exodus, verse 20 to 23… and also in chapter 3, verse 14 to 15, when Moses asked the Angel of the Lord what His Name was, He said: “I am. I am who I am. And thou shalt say unto the people, I am hath sent me unto you.” There, when you go to the original, there are four consonants, which are “Y” (in other words, the “Greek i”), “H”, “W” and “H.” Those four consonants were the ones that the Angel of the Lord gave to Moses as His Name.
And then it says in Exodus, chapter 23, verse 20 to 23, speaking about the Angel of the Lord, God says something very important there, which we cannot overlook; it says:
“Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.
Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him.
But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries.
For mine Angel shall go before thee, and bring thee in unto the Amorites, and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites: and I will cut them off.”
Now see how the Name of God is in His Angel.
That is why the Angel of the Lord, when Moses asked Him what His Name was, He gave him those four letters, four consonants: “Y” (which is the “wai”), “H”, “W”, “H”; and thus Moses obtained that revelation. Moses heard how it was pronounced and Moses had that knowledge, being a dispensational prophet sent for the deliverance of the Hebrew people. Sent by whom? By the Pillar of Fire, the Angel of the Covenant, the Angel of the Lord, which through Moses was manifested and carried out the exodus of the Hebrew people.
And now, this Angel of the Covenant, when He became flesh was known by the name of Jesus; and He said (Jesus said): “I have come in the name of my Father”12</sup>; and He said that the things He did, He did them in the Name of His Father13.
And He said on one occasion: “Father, glorify thy name.” And God said: “I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.” That is somewhere around chapter 12, verse 28, of John:
“I have both glorified it (He glorified Him in the First Coming of Christ) and will glorify it again (that will be in the Second Coming of Christ; and that will be the Eternal Name of God and New Name of the Lord Jesus Christ).”
We were correct: chapter 12, verse 28, of John. When Jesus said these words, God spoke this from Heaven:
“I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.”
And many people said: “An Angel has spoken to Him.” Others said: “No, it was thunder.” And Christ said: “This voice did not come for my sake, but for your sake.”
Now see how, for the Last Day, the Eternal Name of God will be glorified, the New Name of the Lord Jesus Christ will be glorified: in the Coming of the Angel of the Covenant, the Angel of the Lord, in the Last Day, in the Age of the Cornerstone.
And the things that Christ in Holy Spirit will be carrying out, He will be carrying them out in the Eternal Name of God; and that is why we will be seeing that everything will be materializing according to how it is promised in the Scripture. It is a Work of God in His Eternal Name and New Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Now, we cannot go on talking about these things, since we are running out of time and we would already get into this subject very deeply.
But look, for the Millennial Kingdom this Eternal Name of God and New Name of the Lord Jesus Christ will be taught, and people will obtain the knowledge of the Eternal Name of God. “And in that day the Lord will be one, and His Name will be one.” That is in Zechariah, what chapter? Chapter 12 or 14; chapter 14, around there, around verse from 8 to 9.
And now, why does it say that “the Lord will be one, and one His Name” and “the Lord will be King over all the Earth?” And when it says: “The Lord will be King over all the Earth,” that is Jesus Christ as King over all the Earth.
Now, the Name of the Lord, notice, when the Name of the Lord is spoken, it is the four consonant letters. What should be placed there is “Y” (in other words, the “Greek i”), “H”, “W” and “H”; but they added, to those four consonants, they added other letters.
For example, the “Y”, they added the “e” and the “o”, and it says “Jeo” or “Yeo”. The “Y” in Spanish is also translated as “J”.
And then… Notice, they added the “e”, to the “Y” they added the “e”. And after the “H” they put the “o”, and then it says “Jeho”.
And then, to the “W”, as the “double u” is also “double v”, then they placed an “a” after the “W”, then it said “Jehowa”, with “double v”; and then they also took away one of the “v’s”, and then “Jehovah” was left; or they also placed “Yahweh”.
In other words, they began to add letters in different ways, to make the four consonants that God gave to Moses in chapter 3, verse 13 to 14, of Exodus pronounceable; but look, with that they have not yet achieved the pronunciation of the Eternal Name of God.
But you see, for the Last Day the promise is that God will write upon the Overcomer, Christ will write upon the Overcomer the Eternal Name of God and New Name of the City of our God and His New Name; and he will have the revelation of that Name, and he will work in that Name.
Now look, in the First Coming of Christ, Christ said that He came in the Name of His Father, and that He worked in the Name of His Father, and He spoke in the Name of His Father; but you never heard it – in the history of the Gospels you never hear Jesus say: “I in the Name of the Lord heal this sick man,” or “I in the Name of the Lord open your eyes,” or “I in the name of YHWH multiply these loaves and these fishes,” but rather, He spoke the Word; and no one heard Him pronounce a name, no one heard Him pronounce the Name of God. Why? Because He came in the Name of God, He had the Name of God manifested in Him.
And therefore… You see, when the president of a nation comes, he comes in the name of the president of that nation; and he can command this to be done or that to be done without having to say: “In the name of the president of the nation, So-and-So, I command this to be done.” No, everybody knows that that is the president, and he is ordering that to be done; and they do it. They do not ask him: “In what name do you command us?” Well, if they know that he has the name; therefore, if he has the name, he is commanding in his name; and the people that are doing the things, they are doing them because the one that has the name is commanding it.
Now, let’s leave that alone, because when this Angel comes, who receives that little white Stone, and upon whom Christ will write His Name and the Name of our God and the Name of the City of our God, he will not have to be saying any name for the work he is doing. He will do it, and everyone will know that he will be doing it in the Eternal Name of God and New Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Well, we have seen that even the calling of the 144,000 Hebrews will be done in the Eternal Name of God and New Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. And all the work… and the calling of God’s elect of the Last Day from among the gentiles, too, from the Church of Jesus Christ. And all the Work that will be done by the Angel of Jesus Christ will be done in the Eternal Name of God and New Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
And that is how THE LAMB WITH THE 144,000 HEBREWS will be ON MOUNT ZION at the Last Day; but first there are the elect of the gentile Church on Mount Zion, in the Age of the Cornerstone.
[The little donkey brays again –Editor].
There we have it again… On some occasion watch, listen well; and perhaps some, then, do not say it so clearly; but for a donkey, it speaks quite clearly.
Well, there are people who do not even know what are the… what? The vowels. And if a donkey knows them… And notice, he went from the first to the second, from the second to the third, because… That is hereditary, right? So it came by inheritance, they did not learn it either; it already came, let’s say, in their blood. Well, but God has given us to know much more than that.
And you see, the great wise men in religious matters have tried to pronounce the four consonants, four letters too, and they still have not been able to; to pronounce them in such a way that it is heard as God told the prophet Moses, to make the Eternal Name of God pronounceable.
Well, the religious science, which is theology, has been there for many thousands of years with four letters there, that it has not yet been able to pronounce right. But for this end time one of the things that will be contained in the revelation of the Second Coming of Christ are those four letters, those four consonants.
Well, let’s leave that still there, since time has advanced.
May God bless you all, may God keep you, and take care of you; and may soon the number of God’s elect be completed; and may soon the dead in Christ be resurrected and we who are alive be transformed, and may we all be taken with Christ to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb in Heaven. In the Eternal Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen and amen.
And with the faith placed in Christ we will get the new body: we will get the new and eternal body that He has promised for all of us; with the faith placed in Christ, the Angel of the Covenant.
With the faith placed in Christ, the Angel of the Covenant, we will obtain all that He has promised for us, for this end time, in the Age of the Cornerstone and Dispensation of the Kingdom.
Look how the greatest blessing of the Church of Jesus Christ and for the Church of Jesus Christ has fallen upon us in Latin America and the Caribbean: the most glorious stage of all stages.
And with that manifestation in Latin America and the Caribbean, God will dedicate, Christ will dedicate that spiritual Temple to God, for God to dwell in all His fullness in it, in His Church.
Well, let’s leave that alone; because if God is going to manifest Himself in all His fullness, someone has to be ministering there. Christ the Holy Spirit has to be ministering, Christ in Holy Spirit through a man; therefore, the intercession will no longer be made in Heaven, because He will have already finished in Heaven His Work of Intercession.
Therefore, on Earth, in His Church, the blessing or divine judgment will come from there, the blessing for the human beings or divine judgment; it will be spoken. In other words, the revelation of Heaven will come, from the Throne of God in Heaven, to the Church of Jesus Christ; and there that divine revelation will be captured and made known to the human beings.
Remember that it is in the most holy place where only one person ministered: the high priest? And that was the one who had the Name written on his forehead, on a gold leaf.
That is why God got angry with Moses when he asked for an assistant. The ministry of the priesthood was for Moses; when he asked for an assistant, then he passed the ministry of the priesthood of Moses to his brother Aaron. But it had to be in Moses both the ministry of prophet and king and of priest, high priest; because the ministry of king and high priest is the ministry of Christ, who during the Millennial Kingdom will be as King, and He is also the High Priest.
Now, let’s already leave that alone.
Did you see that the New Name, that comes from a line of thought since the Old Testament? And if it was there in the temple, and the Angel of the Covenant had it… See, where was the Angel of the Covenant in the temple? In the most holy place, upon the mercy seat, and there He had it. And then the high priest had it on his forehead: when he entered the temple, there he had it written on a gold leaf.
See? It was written upon a man. And now Christ says: “I will write upon him the Name of my God, and the Name of the City of my God, New Jerusalem, which comes down from Heaven, from my God, and my New Name.”
That person will minister in the Most Holy Place. The other angel messengers ministered in the Holy Place; but that one who ministers in the Most Holy Place will have written… See? “I will write upon him…”
It was the high priest that had it written on him. And now, the one that will minister in the Most Holy Place will be the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ in the Last Day. The other messengers ministered in their time there in the Holy Place.
Well, that is the Angel that calls and gathers the elect of God of the Last Day. That is the Angel who comes in the Eternal Name of God, to carry out the Work of Christ, and Christ through him carry out His Work for the Last Day. That is why He comes with the Seal of the living God and can seal in their foreheads the servants of our God, the 144,000, and then they appear with the Eternal Name of God and Name of the Lamb written on their foreheads, having the revelation of that Name.
Well, we already saw a little bit more; but there are many other things. As you listen through the messages, you get the knowledge of all these things.
Remember that God gives us a meal, a well distributed dinner, in other words, well prepared: a little bit of vegetables here, a little bit of meat here, and so on a little bit of each thing, because it is well balanced.
Some people want to hear about only one thing, and that rather hurts them; it has to be in the way God gives us spiritual food.
Look, some people say: “No, it’s just that I like carrots,” and you have to put a plate of carrots for them, and that is what they eat. And every week, how are they? So yellow they look like they are sick. Excess of vitamin A. See?
We have to have a well-balanced diet. And that is what God gives us in every message: a meal, a well-balanced diet, a little bit of everything. And thus we are growing in the knowledge of all these things with these spiritual vitamins; vitamins, minerals and all these things; and we are getting a complete picture of the entire Divine Program; not of one single thing, but of the entire Program of God.
May God continue to bless you all, and may you all have a good evening.
