The origin and glorious adoption of the children of God

Good afternoon, beloved friends and brethren present. It is a great privilege for me to be with you on this occasion, to share with you some moments of fellowship around the Word of God and His Program relevant to this end time.

For which I want to read in Paul’s letter to the Romans, chapter 8, verses 14 to 23, where he tells us:

“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Our subject for this occasion is: “THE ORIGIN AND GLORIOUS ADOPTION OF THE CHILDREN OF GOD.”

Just as humanly we have come from our earthly parents…: from our father through the union with our mother, our earthly body has come; that is the closest earthly origin for us.

Now, when it comes to this topic: the origin of the children of God and the glorious adoption that is to come for the children of God, then we must go to God. The origin of the children of God is in God: the children of God come from God.

Now, notice how Jesus said that He came from God: “I came from God, and I return to God.1” He said that He had descended from Heaven2. Now, the earthly body had been born on Earth, but the one inside the earthly body had come from Heaven.

And now, the human being is body (which is what we see), is spirit (which is another body from another dimension) and is soul; and the most important thing about the human being is the soul: that is the seed, the offspring. And it doesn’t matter where the physical body came from, it doesn’t matter; what matters is where the person’s soul came from; and there are only two places where the person can come from.

And now, let’s see, because this is very important for every human being; and then see how all this is clarified through the Scripture, to know who we are and where we have come from, because it is very important that every human being knows where he has come from.

The human being is looking for his origin, and thinks that he came from the chimpanzee or another animal; and he says that there was, between the human being and the animal, another animal, which is called “the missing link”, which science is looking for. But look, the children of God have come from God; it is very important to know this, so that we can understand this mystery of the sons and daughters of God.

And now, notice how Jesus speaks in a hard way to a group of people who were against Him, and look, in chapter… let’s see… in John, Christ speaking to some Hebrews, chapter 8, verse 32 and on, it says:

“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?

Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.

And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.

If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

I know that ye are Abraham’s seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.

I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.

They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham.

But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.

Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.

Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.

Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.

Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.

Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?

He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.”

Now, see how Jesus identifies those people who were against Him as children of the devil, and He says to them: “If you were children of God, you would hear the Word of God, the words that I speak.” He says: “For he that is of God hears God’s words.”

And now, why didn’t they hear it, why didn’t those people listen to it? Jesus

tells them: “…ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.”

Now see, this was a hard word but it was the truth.

We have to understand that Jesus taught that on this planet Earth there are children of God and there are children of the devil. This is a reality that we can’t cover with our hands. Anyone who teaches that there are no children of the devil and that all are children of God would be contrary to what Jesus taught.

Now, what we have to do is to see who we are, which side we are on: whether on the side of the children of God or the other side.

Now, he who is a child of God is identified as Jesus Christ says: “He who is of God hears the Word of God.” See how the child of God is easily identified.

Now, Christ taught that there is wheat and there are tares; the tares represent the children of the evil one, and the wheat represents the children of God. And for the Last Day, for the end of time, for the time of harvest, the wheat will be gathered, the children of God; and the tares shall be bound in bundles and burned in the furnace of fire3. That will be the end of the tares, the children of the evil one; and for the children of God it will be the harvest, for the dead in Christ to be resurrected in eternal bodies and us who are alive to be transformed, and to all be in the image and likeness of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ.

We need to understand that there is a Divine Program which Jesus Christ is carrying out on behalf of His children.

Christ also said, in Matthew, chapter 15, verse 13, speaking here of human beings represented in trees, in plants, see what Christ says: chapter 15, verse 13, of Matthew:

“But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.”

In other words, he is talking there about all the people who are not children of God; they are plants that our heavenly Father did not sow.

Now, in John – the apostle Saint John also speaks to us in his first letter, chapter 3, verse 1 and on; he says:

“Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.

Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be:…”

In other words, we have not yet been adopted, we have not yet been transformed, what we will be when we are transformed has not yet been manifested; because when we are transformed and we have the new body, we will be kings on this planet Earth and priests in that glorious Millennial Kingdom of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ.

“…but we know that, when he shall appear (that is in His Second Coming), we shall be like him (in other words, we will be transformed, and then we will be in the image and likeness of Jesus Christ our Savior, because He will give us an eternal, immortal, incorruptible and glorified and young body for all eternity; and thus we will be like Him)<em>; for we shall see him as he is.”

And when we have the new body, we will already see Him in His glorified body, and we will be with Him for the Millennium and for all eternity.

“And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.”

And he goes on to say further on (chapter 3, this same chapter 3):

“He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.”

Did you see how clear Saint John speaks in this letter? Now notice, the children of God are God’s seed.

It is like the seed of trees: a mango tree (as you call it), its seed is made of mango; and if a little tree is born from a seed of that tree, what will be born? Will an avocado tree be born? No, a mango tree must be born; because the seed, the offspring that is in that tree that was born, is the seed of the tree from which that seed came from.

And now, every child of God is an offspring of God, a seed of God, sons and daughters of God. And this should be clear in the minds and hearts of all of us.

And now, that is why there is that feeling in the heart of the sons and daughters of God: they want to know the things of God, they want to read in the Bible the whole Program of God and they want to receive God’s blessings; and, in the time they are living, they are waiting for God’s blessings and for God to open their understanding to understand His Word; because “he that is of God, hears the Word of God.”

And now, we can see that this mystery of the sons and daughters of God is a great but simple mystery.

Our heavenly Father, notice, has sent us to this planet Earth; although the human being fell in the Garden of Eden and lost the right to eternal life: he lost the Title Deed, and therefore he lost the right to be king over the planet Earth, and he could not continue to live: Adam only lived 930 years4</sup>; and the Adam’s descendants we find that they are born, live for a while here on Earth, and then die. This is because the human being fell there in the Garden of Eden, sinned, and lost the right to eternal life.

Now, the human being has been living in bondage; but Christ, just as He delivered the Hebrew people from bondage in Egypt, He came to die on Calvary’s Cross, and to deliver the children of God from sin and from that bondage that the devil had, to set them free and give them eternal life. That is why He says in John, chapter 5, verse 24:

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”

Now see how important it is to hear the Word of God; for “he that is of God, the Voice of God, the Word of God, hears.”

In this passage, notice, Christ shows us that the one who hears His Word “hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation”: he doesn’t have to go to the Final Judgment to be judged and condemned, but rather, he was already forgiven, his sins were cleansed with the Blood of Christ, and he is justified before God as if he had never sinned. Therefore, that person at the Last Day will be transformed if he is alive, or if he died he will be resurrected in an eternal body, and will live with Christ for all eternity; he passed from death to life.

Humanity, since the fall of man, entered into death; because death entered through a man: through Adam, into the Garden of Eden, into the human race5. And now Christ in His First Coming brings all the children out of death, all those souls that come from God, He brings them out of death when they hear His Word, His Message, and believe in Christ as their Savior and receive Him as their Savior, and wash their sins in the Blood of Christ and receive His Holy Spirit; they obtain the new birth, are born in the Kingdom of God with eternal life; and thus they begin in the Program of eternal life to live eternally.

And now, in John, chapter 6, verse 40, Jesus says:

“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.”

Do you see how great a blessing there is for anyone who sees the Son and believes in Him? He says to “have eternal life (so that he may have eternal life); and I will raise him up at the Last Day.” In other words, even if the believer in Christ dies physically, his hope and his faith continues; because he knows that Christ in the Last Day (which is the seventh millennium) will resurrect him in a new body, in an eternal body, with eternal life; an eternal and glorified body, equal to the body of Jesus Christ our Savior, to live for all eternity; and if we remain alive until we see His Coming and see the dead in Christ resurrected, then we will be transformed while alive, and we will obtain the new body.

Now, these blessings are for those who believe in Him, for those who receive Him as their Savior and wash away their sins in His Blood, and receive His Holy Spirit; and thus they obtain the new birth: they are born as children of God, as sons and daughters of God; and they have already begun their stage of restoration to eternal life, from which Adam and Eve fell there in the Garden of Eden.

Now we can see that the origin of the sons and daughters of God is in God; they have come from God, their souls come from God; they come from God’s dimension, from the seventh dimension, and those souls come from God Himself. That is why Christ speaking about these people said, in chapter 10, verse 14 to 16 [John]:

“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: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.

Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.

No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.”

And then he continues here… See, Christ says that He has other sheep that are not of the Hebrew fold: “These I must also bring.” And since the death, resurrection and ascension of Christ to Heaven, then the Day of Pentecost came, where 120 people received the Holy Spirit; and from then on, the Gospel began to be preached presenting Christ as our Savior, to wash our sins in His Blood and receive His Holy Spirit.

One hundred and twenty people were born on the Day of Pentecost, they were born again, and from there onwards all the believers in Christ our Savior have been born again, who have washed away their sins in the Blood of Christ and have received His Holy Spirit.

All those people have their names written in Heaven, in the Lamb’s Book of Life, since before the foundation of the world. All those are souls of God, who have come from God to live on this Earth in these mortal bodies to make contact with eternal life, and to receive Christ as their Savior, to wash their sins away in the Blood of Christ, and to receive His Holy Spirit; and thus to receive the new birth, of which Christ spoke to Nicodemus when He said: “Verily, verily I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he can’t see the Kingdom of God,” in other words, he can’t understand it.

Nicodemus thought of birth through a woman, and said: “How can this be done? Can a man, when he is old, enter into his mother’s womb and be born?” So, what if Nicodemus’ mother was already dead?; for if Nicodemus was already old, how would his mother be?

And now, Christ says: “Verily, verily I say unto thee, Except a man be born of the Water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God (or the Kingdom of the Heavens).6

And now, you see, it is by believing in Christ as our Savior, and washing our sins in His Blood, and receiving His Holy Spirit, that we obtain the new birth; and thus we obtain a theophanic body of the sixth dimension.

Whenever there is a new birth or there is a birth, a body always appears, a body is born; and we obtain the heavenly body, the heavenly body of the sixth dimension; and then, at the Last Day, we obtain the eternal and glorified physical body, equal to the glorified body of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ.

That is the Program of the New Creation that Christ is carrying out, because He is creating a new race. That is why He is the second Adam7.

Through the first Adam, the race already comes in a condition of death: it is born, grows and later dies. But through Christ, you see, it is in a progressive way: He takes us out of spiritual death, gives us eternal life, and at the Last Day He will give us an eternal and glorified body to live with Him for all eternity.

Now, let’s see how Christ tells us here; in the same chapter 10, verse 27 and on, He says:

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

My Father, which gave them me…”

See: “My Father, which gave them me…” Where do the sheep of Christ, the sons and daughters of God, come from? From the heavenly Father.

“My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.

I and my Father are one.”

It was the heavenly Father manifested in Jesus in all His fullness; therefore, He was calling and gathering His sheep. He began back then, and He has continued to call and gather His sheep from stage to stage, from age to age, and to give them eternal life: producing the new birth, and thus giving them eternal life so that they do not die, but live for all eternity; because they are souls of God that come in mortal, corruptible and temporary bodies to make contact with eternal life on this Earth, which is Jesus Christ, and to wash away their sins in the Blood of Christ by receiving Christ as our Savior, and receiving His Holy Spirit, and thus obtaining the new birth.

Now, we have seen the origin of the sons and daughters of God and we have also seen the glorious adoption that Christ has promised for all His children.

We will be adopted: that is, we will obtain an eternal and glorified body, equal to the glorified body of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ. That is our adoption: it is the redemption of the body, where the sons and daughters of God will again become eternal, with eternal bodies, an eternal body like the eternal body of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ.

Now, we have seen this mystery of “THE ORIGIN AND GLORIOUS ADOPTION OF THE CHILDREN OF GOD.” The origin of the children of God and the adoption of the children of God for the Last Day, where the sons and daughters of God will again be physically eternal. From then on, no son or daughter of God will die, because we will have a glorified and eternal body, like the glorified body of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ.

That is why Christ has promised the resurrection of the believers in Him who have died physically, He has promised it for the Last Day, which is the seventh millennium from Adam until now or third millennium from Christ until now.

But we don’t know in what year of the seventh millennium the resurrection will be; but the important thing is, in the time that the person has to live, to be listening to the Voice of God, the Voice of Jesus Christ, to obtain the forgiveness of sins and to obtain the Spirit of Christ, and thus to obtain the new birth; and to be prepared for, at the Last Day, when Christ will resurrect the dead believers in Him, if the person died: be one of those who will resurrect in a new body, in an eternal body; and if he remains alive, then be one of those who will be transformed in this end time.

Do you see the importance in listening to the Voice of Christ, the Voice of God? And Christ said: “My sheep hear my Voice, and they follow me.” See the identification of the sons and daughters of God: they hear the Voice of God, the Voice of Jesus Christ, the Voice of the Good Shepherd.

The origin of the children of God, what is it? God; they come from God, they are souls of God; they come from the dimension of God, from the seventh dimension. And the glorious adoption for the children of God is the resurrection of the dead in Christ and the transformation of us who are living, in this end time, which will soon take place.

That is why the Gospel has been preached from the time of the apostles until now; and that is the call for all the sons and daughters of God, the call for all the sheep of Jesus Christ. “My sheep hear my voice, and they follow me.” And Christ has been calling His sheep through His messengers from the time of the apostles until now, to give them eternal life: to forgive their sins, to cleanse their sins with His Blood, and give them His Holy Spirit; and thus to carry out in them, to effectuate in them, the new birth: to be born in the Kingdom of God.

Without being born into the Kingdom of God, there is no resurrection in an eternal body for any person. Whoever is not born again cannot see the Kingdom of God; whoever is not born of the Water and the Spirit cannot enter the Kingdom of God, the Kingdom of the Heavens.

It is necessary to understand these things to see how we can be prepared in this end time to receive our transformation, our adoption, which is the new body that He has promised for each of you and for me as well.

“THE ORIGIN OF THE CHILDREN OF GOD AND THE GLORIOUS ADOPTION OF THE CHILDREN OF GOD.”

It has been a great privilege for me to be with you on this occasion testifying to you of “THE ORIGIN AND GLORIOUS ADOPTION OF THE CHILDREN OF GOD.”

May the blessings of Jesus Christ, the Angel of the Covenant, be upon all of you and upon me too; and may the number of God’s elect be soon completed, of the sheep of Christ in His Fold, in His Church; and may Christ soon resurrect the dead believers in Him and transform us who are living, and take us with Him to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb in Heaven. In the Eternal Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen and amen.

Thank you very much for your kind attention, beloved friends and brethren present, and continue having an afternoon filled with the blessings of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ.

Never deviate from our beloved Lord Jesus Christ. Keep moving forward, no matter what problems you have in your life.

If you have problems, if you make a mistake or a fault or a sin: confess your sins and your mistakes to Jesus Christ, and place them inside the Blood of Jesus Christ; because the Blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from all sin8. And continue onward in your Christian life, because soon we will receive the new body, and we will be equal to Jesus Christ; and from then on we will never make mistakes, we will not make faults and we will never sin again; and we will never get sick and we will never get old either: we will remain young, from 18 to 21 years old in appearance, and that will be for all eternity.

Do you see the great blessing that Christ has for you and me? Therefore, hold on tight to Jesus Christ. No matter what happens around you or in your life: keep going forward until you obtain the transformation of your body, until you obtain the new body; and if you die physically, you will be resurrected in a new body.

So, after you have held on to Christ, keep going forward all the days of your life!, and know that you have eternal life and that you are going to have a new and eternal body, just like the body of Jesus Christ.
