Good evening kind friends and brethren present, radio listeners and television viewers. It is a great privilege to be with you on this occasion, to share some moments of fellowship around the Word of God and His program pertaining to this end time.
For this reason, I want to read a Bible passage in Isaiah chapter 54, verses 11 to 14, where it says:
“O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will lay thy stones with fair colours, and lay thy foundations with sapphires.
And I will make thy windows of agates, and thy gates of carbuncles, and all thy borders of pleasant stones.
And all thy children shall be taught of the Lord; and great shall be the peace of thy children.”
May God allow us to understand His Word and may we all be taught of God on this occasion.
“THE MYSTERY OF: BEING TAUGHT OF GOD.”
Throughout Biblical history, we find that God has sent prophets for each age and for each dispensation; and those are God’s messengers for different generations and different dispensations and different ages too.
Now, God’s teaching has always been in the framework of a dispensation. It is impossible for God’s teaching, through which God’s sons and daughters are filled with the knowledge of God—it is impossible for that teaching to be outside a dispensation.
And for each dispensation, we find that God has established the relevant ages and their relevant messengers.
Now, knowing that God’s teaching is in the framework of a dispensation, we then need to know the dispensation relevant to the time in which a person is given to live, in order to obtain God’s teaching in that dispensation through the messenger that God sends for that time.
We find that God, through the Prophet Moses, spoke in the Book of Deuteronomy, chapter 18, verses 15 to 19, saying:
“The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken.”
Why does the Prophet Moses say: “Unto him ye shall hearken?” Because God’s teaching comes through that prophet; through that prophet, God comes teaching His people for that age and for that dispensation.
And what does that prophet bring from God? Verse 18 of this same chapter (chapter 18), says:
“I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee,” (meaning, like Moses), “and will put my words in his mouth…”
What does God put in the mouth of that prophet-messenger that He sends? He puts His Word. Because God’s prophets are the mouth of God, through whom the Word of God, the Voice of God, comes teaching all the children of God, teaching all the sheep of God’s Fold.
Psalm 23 speaks to us about God, and says: “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul.” And it goes on to say all the things that God, our Shepherd, will do for us as sheep of His Fold.
When it speaks to us about the Food and the Water He will give us, that is speaking to us about His Word, which is the spiritual Food and the spiritual Water for our souls.
And now, notice how through His prophets, God has been teaching His people in the different times.
We find that God taught His people, Israel, through the Prophet Moses; by giving them the Message of the Law and thus establishing the Hebrew people in the Dispensation of Law. It was God teaching His people through the Prophet Moses; because God puts His Word in the mouth of the prophet that He sends. That is the place where we can hear and find the Word of God pertaining to the age or dispensation in which the person is given to live.
And notice how for each age and each dispensation, there is a prophet-messenger of God; and God puts His Word in the mouth of that prophet-messenger, who is God’s mouth for the people that live on Earth; and through that prophet, God comes teaching His people:
“…And he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.”
Notice what a prophet sent by God will speak (as promised here): he will speak everything God commands that prophet to speak to the people of God; and that is how God teaches His people: it’s through human flesh, through a prophet sent at the time in which God wants to teach His people.
And what will be of the people who are not interested in God’s teaching, who don’t want to be taught of God? It says:
“And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.”
He will have to give an account to God because he rejected God teaching His people through the prophet He has sent for the time in which the person has lived.
And now, we have seen the way that God teaches His people.
We find that at all times there were and there are many preachers who have been speaking about what God has already spoken through His prophets, His messengers; but at no time does that mean those people are prophets or the one God sent for that time.
The one sent by God for that time, through whom God teaches His people, is the prophet-messenger sent for that dispensation which pertains to that time. Through that prophet, God comes with a dispensational Message: that Message comes within the framework of that dispensation pertaining to that time; and that is how God teaches His people.
Now, notice how among the Hebrew people He sent prophets from age to age and from dispensation to dispensation.
There are seven dispensations in the Divine Program:
• The first dispensation is the Dispensation of Innocence, back in the time of Adam, before the fall in the garden of Eden. And the Prophet Adam was the prophet-messenger of that Dispensation of Innocence.
• Then we have the second dispensation, which is the Dispensation of Conscience, and its prophet-messenger was Seth (the son of Adam, who was in the likeness of Adam).
• Then we have the Dispensation of Human Government, which is the third dispensation, and its prophet was Noah.
Notice how each of these messengers brought the Message pertaining to that dispensation in which they were given to live. Then, we can also see that the Message brought by each dispensational prophet contains all the things that the people of God must know; the things relevant to that dispensation are made known by that prophet.
• After the third dispensation, of Human Government, (whose prophet-messenger was Noah), came the Dispensation of Promise: the fourth dispensation; and the messenger of that dispensation was the prophet and patriarch Abraham.
• Then came the fifth dispensation: the Dispensation of Law; and the prophet of that fifth dispensation (of the Dispensation of Law) was the Prophet Moses.
And we can see how he came with a Message, with a dispensational Message; and God was manifested in that prophet, teaching His people, Israel. And He made the Hebrew people into a nation through the manifestation of God through the Prophet Moses; and He taught the Hebrew people all the Divine Laws, and established them as a nation.
• And now, after the fifth dispensation, the Dispensation of Law, we have the sixth dispensation, which is the Dispensation of Grace; and its Messenger is the Lord Jesus Christ, who appeared two thousand years ago among the Hebrew people. And at that time, the Dispensation of Grace was overlapping with the Dispensation of Law.
Remember that dispensations overlap with one another; and that is why we find a connection between one dispensation and another dispensation, and between one dispensational messenger and another dispensational messenger, and between a Message of one dispensation and a Message of another dispensation; the Messages are overlapping, and so are the messengers, and so are the dispensations.
And it is the same God in each dispensation and in each dispensational messenger, with the Message of that dispensation teaching His people.
And now, seeing the way that God teaches His people, we can then understand why when our Lord Jesus Christ was here on Earth, in human flesh, He was preaching the Word; and they spoke very badly of Jesus.
But Jesus said, notice, in Saint John chapter 6, verse 39 and on, He said… let’s see here, there is much more here… chapter 6, verse 35 and on; Jesus says:
“And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.
But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not.
All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven.
And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he saith, I came down from heaven?
Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves.
No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.
Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.
I am that bread of life.”
Here we can see how Jesus shows the Jews the way that God was teaching the Hebrew people in those days: through Jesus; but they could not understand the teaching of Jesus.
In the time of Jesus, there were many teachers: like the high priest, and the doctors of the Law, the Pharisees, the Sadducees, and the priests of the Hebrew religion, and the Sanhedrin Council (made up of seventy scholars in religious matters, with their doctorates in theology); they spoke about God, they taught the Biblical teachings, they spoke to the people about those Biblical teachings, but the One through whom God was teaching His people Israel at that time was through Jesus, the others had a theoretical teaching; it was an intellectual teaching, it was the letter, but Saint Paul says: “The letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.”1
It is not the same thing to teach God’s Message for an age or dispensation anointed with the Spirit of God, as it is to teach people intellectually, to teach the letter of the Bible.
The most important thing in God’s teaching, in God teaching His people, is that God opens to them the Scriptures relevant to the time in which people are living; and He shows them the meaning of those Scriptures and their fulfillment as they are being fulfilled; and He shows them in the Scriptures the time in which they are living, and who they are in the Divine Program, and thus, He prepares them to receive all the blessings that God has for that time, for all of God’s sons and daughters.
Now, notice how God taught through the Lord Jesus Christ, in whom God was manifested in all His fullness in human flesh. God was in Christ reconciling the world unto Himself.2
And now, we find that after Jesus’ teaching in human flesh, approximately two thousand years have passed. And what has God been doing? He has been teaching His people. And how has He been teaching His people? We find that Christ said in Saint John chapter 10, verses 14 to 16:
“I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold,” (meaning that they are not of the Hebrew people, they are Gentiles), “them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.”
They will hear the Voice of Christ. They will hear the Voice of Christ, the Voice of the Good Shepherd, teaching His sheep the Word of God.
And that is God’s manifestation through each angel-messenger of each age, through whom God has been teaching His people, His Church, all those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life; all those sheep who are not of the Hebrew people, but who would be called and would hear the Voice of Christ: they would hear the teaching of Christ through each of those messengers He would send.
“And there shall be one Fold, and one Shepherd.” That Fold is the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, where all of God’s elect, all of God’s sheep, are called and gathered. That is where they are born of the Water and of the Spirit.
In the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ is where God’s sons and daughters are born. The new birth is operated there, because that is where people believe in Christ as their Savior, wash away their sins in the Blood of Christ, and receive the Spirit of Jesus Christ; and thus, they are born into the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.
And now, that is the Fold, the Flock, of the Lord Jesus Christ. And He is the Good Shepherd.
And the Good Shepherd has been leading His Fold, His Church, from age to age, through these messengers He has sent during these seven stages or ages of the Gentile Church, pertaining to the Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Christ. For the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ is the new Temple, the spiritual Temple of Christ.
The Hebrew people no longer have the temple Moses built, nor do they have the temple Solomon built, nor do they have the temple that was there in Jerusalem (for it was destroyed in the year 70 by Roman general Titus, and then, in that place, the Mosque of Omar was built: a Gentile temple, a temple of another religion); and now the Hebrew people don’t have a temple in which to carry out the sacrifices for sin and for reconciliation to God.
But God does have a Temple; Christ has been building that Temple, and that Temple is the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. And God’s elect, represented in the Lord’s sheep are part of that Temple from age to age; because Christ has been building that spiritual Temple out of human beings.
And now, we have seen that seven stages or ages of the Gentile Church have passed, in which God has been teaching His people, His children, through each of these seven angel-messengers; and He has been calling and gathering His elect, and putting them (where?) in His spiritual Temple, in His Church.
And now, notice, God has a new Temple in which He has been manifesting Himself in the portion relevant to each age, and He has been teaching by that manifestation through each angel-messenger.
And at the Last Day, we would be in the Age of the Cornerstone—which is the age pertaining to the Holy of Holies of the spiritual Temple of Christ—where God in Holy Spirit would be manifested in human flesh in His Angel-Messenger, teaching His people: teaching His people the Message of the Gospel of the Kingdom, the Message of the Dispensation of the Kingdom; the Message represented in the Last Trumpet or Great Voice of Trumpet, which is the Voice of Christ at the Last Day through His Angel-Messenger, in the Holy of Holies of His spiritual Temple, which is the Age of the Cornerstone, where a new dispensation is opened: the Dispensation of the Kingdom, and where all of God’s elect are called and gathered.
All the sheep of the Lord Jesus Christ of the Last Day are gathered in the Age of the Cornerstone, which is the Holy of Holies of the spiritual Temple of Christ.
A temple for God is not complete, nor can it be dedicated to God, unless it has the holy of holies where God must dwell. And the spiritual Temple of Christ, notice, we find that It has had the Holy Place pertaining to the seven stages or ages of the Gentile Church, and at this Last Day the Holy of Holies of His spiritual Temple would be built.
We find that with the seven stages or ages of the Gentile Church (which were fulfilled: the first in Asia Minor; the second, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth in Europe, and the seventh in North America), the Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Christ was built, where God was teaching His people through His seven angel-messengers.
The Spirit of Christ manifested in the seven ages through human flesh in His angel-messengers, those were the seven Spirits of God that run to and fro through the whole Earth;3 in other words, the manifestation of the Holy Spirit in seven messengers, in seven ages, ages pertaining to the Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Jesus Christ.
And now, at the Last Day, where will Jesus Christ in Holy Spirit, God in Holy Spirit, be teaching His people? He has gone to Latin America and the Caribbean, where He calls and gathers His elect for the construction of the Holy of Holies of His spiritual Temple, to thus complete the number of His sheep, to put them in His Fold, which is His spiritual Temple, in the Holy of Holies of His spiritual Temple; and thus, build the Holy of Holies of His spiritual Temple and complete the construction of His spiritual Temple, of His Church, to manifest Himself in His Church—in the Holy of Holies of His spiritual Temple—in all His fullness.
That is why at the Last Day we would also have God teaching His people, where? In the Age of the Cornerstone. And in which territory? In Latin America and the Caribbean.
That is what God does at this Last Day in Latin America and the Caribbean: He is teaching His people, He is teaching His elect, all those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
And where is He teaching them? In His spiritual Temple, in His Church. All teaching comes—during the seven ages and in the Age of the Cornerstone, it comes in and to the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.
And now, notice how at this end time, THE MYSTERY OF: BEING TAUGHT OF GOD has been opened; and now we know how God taught in the seven ages of the Gentile Church pertaining to the Holy Place of His spiritual Temple (in Asia Minor, in Europe, and in North America): He taught through His seven angel-messengers.
And now, we have also seen how He would be teaching at this Last Day (where?) in Latin America and the Caribbean, through His Angel-Messenger; all Divine Teaching will come to His people through the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ. That is why in Revelation chapter 4, verse 1, it says:
“Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.”
Where will we go up to? We will go up to the Age of the Cornerstone, which is the Age that represents the Holy of Holies of the spiritual Temple of Christ. And what will we hear? We will hear the things which must shortly come to pass, being made known.
And now, through whom will God be teaching His people all these things which must shortly come to pass? Let Jesus Christ say it Himself in Revelation chapter 22, verse 16:
“I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches.”
Whom does He say He has sent? Jesus Christ says He has sent His Angel-Messenger to testify these things in the churches, these things which must shortly be done.
And now, in Revelation chapter 22, verse 6, it gives us more information about the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ and the things that will be made known through the Angel of the Lord. It says:
“And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.”
Why has He sent His Angel? To show His servants the things which shortly be done. And through His Angel-Messenger, God would be teaching His people at the Last Day.
We have seen: “THE MYSTERY OF: BEING TAUGHT OF GOD.”
Through that manifestation of God in Holy Spirit in His Angel-Messenger, we would be taught of God at this Last Day.
And this is how all of God’s elect would be called and gathered: by the teaching of God through His Angel-Messenger, teaching us the Message of the Dispensation of the Kingdom, which revolves around the Second Coming of Christ as the Lion of the tribe of Judah, as King of kings and Lord of lords, in His Claiming Work; and thus, He opens the mystery of the Seventh Seal to us, meaning, of the Second Coming of Christ, and He fills us with that revelation so that we may be changed and raptured at this Last Day.
“THE MYSTERY OF: BEING TAUGHT OF GOD.”
Notice where we are at this end time: in the Age of the Cornerstone; and in a new dispensation that has opened up at this end time: the Dispensation of the Kingdom, which is overlapping with the Dispensation of Grace.
A new age is also overlapping with the Age of Pisces: it is the Age of Aquarius that is overlapping; and in the Age of Aquarius is when the knowledge of God will fill the whole Earth: “For the Earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.” (Habakkuk chapter 2, verse 14, and Isaiah chapter 11, verse 9.)
Now, we can see how the teaching of the Gospel of the Kingdom will fill every human being with the knowledge of God and His Program; it will fill him with the knowledge of the whole Divine Program: “All shall know Me.”4 God says through the Prophet Zechariah: “In that day shall there be one Lord, and His Name one.”5
No one will teach his neighbor, why? Because we will all be taught of God, in God’s manifestation in Holy Spirit through His Angel-Messenger; and that is the teaching we need at this Last Day. And that is why it says that every man shall no more teach his neighbor, because we will all be taught (of whom?) of God.
Just as people were taught of God in other ages through the prophets of each age and each dispensation… and as they were taught through Jesus Christ two thousand years ago, and then they were also taught by the Spirit of God through the apostles, and then they were taught through the messengers of the seven ages (God teaching through them); likewise, at this Last Day, we will all be taught of God by the manifestation of God in Holy Spirit through His Angel-Messenger, and He will be teaching us the Message of the Gospel of the Kingdom.
Notice, every teaching of God is within the framework of a dispensation; it cannot be outside a dispensation. And God’s teaching for the Last Day is within the framework of the Dispensation of the Kingdom, which is the seventh dispensation.
And Jesus Christ in Holy Spirit will be in His Angel-Messenger teaching His Church, teaching His people, His Church first and then the Hebrew people; and then all human beings on Earth during the glorious Millennial Kingdom of Christ.
And now, we can see how we would be taught of God at this end time.
We have seen: “THE MYSTERY OF: BEING TAUGHT OF GOD.”
May the blessings of Jesus Christ, the Angel of the Covenant, our Savior, be upon each of you and also upon me. And may He allow us to understand His teaching at this Last Day. And may He teach us His entire Program pertaining to this Last Day, pertaining to the Age of the Cornerstone, pertaining to the Dispensation of the Kingdom, and pertaining to Latin America and the Caribbean, and pertaining to the whole Kingdom of God. In the Eternal Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen and amen.
It has been a great privilege to be with you, beloved friends and brethren present, radio listeners and television viewers, testifying to you about: “THE MYSTERY OF: BEING TAUGHT OF GOD.”
We have seen the way we would be taught of God at this end time in which we are living.
So in order to be taught of God at this time, we only need one thing: to find the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ at this end time testifying these things which must shortly come to pass; and upon finding him, we will be receiving God’s teaching, we will be taught of God at this end time.
May the blessings of Jesus Christ, the Angel of the Covenant be upon each one of you and also upon me.
And tomorrow, I will be with each of you again, here in this same place, in this same auditorium, in the morning, and then in the afternoon, at the times that Rev. Miguel Bermúdez Marín will be informing you; and he will also be giving you the address of where we are on this occasion, and where we will also be tomorrow, which is going to be this same place. And we will also be broadcasting on these friendly radio stations and these friendly television channels which have been broadcasting this conference tonight.
May the blessings of Jesus Christ be upon each one of you. And have a good evening, everyone.
I will leave Rev. Miguel Bermúdez Marín to continue with you, and to give you the names, addresses, and phone numbers you can contact.
May God bless you all.
