Good afternoon, beloved brethren and friends present. It is a great blessing and privilege 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 the book of Revelation, chapter 11, verses 15 to 19, where it says:
“And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.
And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,
Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.
And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.
And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.”
May God bless our souls with His Word and allow us to understand It; may He open His Word to us this afternoon and reveal to us all that He wants us to understand. In the Eternal Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen and amen.
Our subject for this occasion is: “THE SEVENTH ANGEL SOUNDING THE LAST TRUMPET.”
Of that Trumpet that is spoken of here, is the same Trumpet that is mentioned in First Corinthians, chapter 15, verses 49 to 55 (or 56), where it says:
“And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly (in other words, we will be in the image and likeness of our beloved Jesus Christ).
Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.”
In other words, we can’t, with these mortal bodies, inherit the Kingdom of God and become kings and priests in the glorious Millennial Kingdom, with this mortal, corruptible and temporary body. In order to reign with Christ in the Millennial Kingdom, we must have the new body, which He will give us, and be in the image and likeness of Jesus Christ our Savior. In that body is that we will live eternally young, representing —for all eternity— 18 to 21 years of age.
“Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed (in other words, a transformation is coming for our earthly body: it will be changed from mortal to immortal, from corruptible to incorruptible; it will be changed to be an incorruptible, immortal and glorified body, like the body of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ),
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump (here we have the Last Trumpet; and it will be at the Last Trumpet, that is to say, it will be at the time of the Last Trumpet): for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed (at the Last Trumpet is that the dead in Christ will be resurrected and we who are living will be transformed).”
The Last Trumpet is that Seventh Trumpet of Revelation, chapter 11, verses 15 and on; and all that is under the ministry of the Two Olive Trees… Remember that chapter 11 of Revelation pertains to the Two Olive Trees, in whom, notice, these great wonders, miracles and signs will be manifested worldwide.
The forerunner of the Second Coming of Christ, in the book of The Seals (we will see here), on page 458 (to 59), says1:
“173 This time was between the Sixth and Seventh Seal, that He calls these people, spoken of by Jesus in Matthew the 24th chapter and the 31st verse, that we’ve just read, see. Trumpets here, the two witnesses of the… When the trumpet sounds, is the trumpet of the two witnesses of the age of grace for the Jews.”
Now see how this Last Trumpet, this Great Voice of Trumpet with which the elect of God are called and gathered…; the elect from among the gentiles first, the Church of Jesus Christ, and then the elect of the Hebrew people.
Now look, these elect are called (with what?) with the Last Trumpet or Great Voice of Trumpet, and:
“ When the trumpet sounds, is the trumpet of the two witnesses of the age of grace for the Jews. One trumpet sound, you notice, one trumpet sound (it is the Trumpet of the Two Witnesses, that is, of Moses and Elijah). He said He’d sound the trumpet. Now notice over here, 31st.
‘And he shall send forth his angels (not one, see; there’s two of them) with a great sound of a trumpet,…’
174 What is it? When God gets ready to speak, there’s a sound of a trumpet. That’s always His Voice. It’s calling to battle, see. God speaks. These angels will come forth with the sounding of the trumpet.
175 And did you notice, at the last angel’s Message, the trumpet sounds. The first angel’s message, a trumpet sound; second angel’s, a trumpet sounded, when He sent it out. Notice, but when the Seals were announced, they were all in one great, Divine thing, to call out a group of people; there was one trumpet sound, and Seven Seals were broke.
176 Notice, ’Gather His elected Jews from the four parts of the heavens.’
177 He mentioned the six Seals, as we have seen, but not the Seventh Seal.”
Now, notice how God when He speaks on Earth —and He always does it through a messenger—, the Voice of God is typified in the sound of a trumpet: a Trumpet is sounding; and that is: God is speaking through a messenger.
And now, for the call of God’s elect from among the gentiles first, for the Church of Jesus Christ, He calls His elect with a Great Voice of Trumpet it is through the ministries of the Angels of the Son of Man; and then He will call the elect of the Hebrew people with the same Message of the Great Voice of Trumpet through the ministries of the Angels of the Son of Man.
And that is how the Seventh Trumpet, the Last Trumpet, sounds, and calls and gathers together all the elect of God, and prepares us to be transformed in this end time, we who are living; and then He calls the Hebrew people, calls 144,000 Hebrews with that same Trumpet, gathers them and seals them with the Seal of the living God; and thus the elect from among the gentiles are completed first and then the elect of the Hebrew people.
Now look, when the Reverend William Branham spoke to us about this Last Trumpet, he says on page 47 of the book of Quotations, verse 402, he says2:
“‘For we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord (See, who is this for? For those who live and have remained until the Coming of the Lord), down here, shall not prevent or hinder those which are asleep.’ Them precious ones that sealed their blood… sealed their testimony with their blood. ’Not prevent or hinder those that are asleep, for the trumpet will sound.’ Something will take place, ’the Gospel something will sound,…’”
“…the Gospel something will sound…” That Last Trumpet or Seventh Trumpet is the Gospel something: it is the preaching of the Gospel of the Kingdom.
“…‘the Gospel something will sound,’ the announcing of His coming.”
The Last Trumpet or Great Voice of Trumpet or Seventh Trumpet, which sounds in Revelation, chapter 11, verse 15 and on, you see, is the preaching of the Gospel of the Kingdom (which revolves around the Second Coming of Christ) proclaiming, announcing the mystery of the Second Coming of Christ; announcing that mystery to the Church of Jesus Christ, opening that mystery, and identifying what the Second Coming of Christ truly is. And with the preaching of that mystery, of the mystery of the Second Coming of Christ, of the mystery of the Seventh Seal, all the elect of God are called and gathered, and prepared to be transformed in this final time.
“‘And the dead in Christ shall rise first. And we which are alive and remain shall be changed.’ Standing, and feel a change come on: the gray hair go out, the wrinkles fall away, be changed in a moment, in a twinkling of an eye. And we shall meet our loved ones first…”
Now see what this great event of our transformation and the resurrection of the dead in Christ will be like.
We also saw on page 1593 that flying saucers or chariots of fire will have to do with our transformation and the resurrection of the dead in Christ. Now, we can see that the heavenly hosts will be working in this end time, for all this Divine Program that will be taking place in this Last Day in which we are living.
Now, let’s see a little more about this mystery. Remember that the Reverend William Branham tells us, on page 128 of the book of Quotations, verse 11434:
“Under the Seventh Trumpet, is to Israel the same as the Seventh Seal was to the Church.”
The Seventh Seal for the Church is the Second Coming of Christ, and the Seventh Trumpet for Israel is the Second Coming of Christ; and Moses and Elijah are under the Seventh Trumpet.
And now, let’s look on page 129, verse 1150; it says5:
“Now, as soon as this Church (…); that mystery of the Seventh Seal, or the Seventh Seal, the mystery of going (that is, the mystery of the Second Coming of Christ: as soon as the mystery of the Seventh Seal is known, that is, as soon as the Second Coming of Christ is known). And the Jews is called by the mystery of the Seventh Trumpet, which is two prophets, Elijah and Moses…”
Now, see this such great mystery; but everything is so simple that even children can understand it by being open to all God’s sons and daughters.
We find that this mystery of the Seventh Trumpet… See, it says here6:
“He said, at… ‘The Great Trumpet would sound. The Great Trumpet!’ Not Trumpets now, feast of trumpets; there is two of them, Moses and Elias, to call the Trumpet. But, under ‘the Great Trumpet,’ the Coming of the Lord (The Great Trumpet is what? The Coming of the Lord), to announce Joseph returning (that is, to announce the Second Coming of Christ; because Joseph returning, that is the Second Coming of Christ, Christ returning, typified in Joseph, the son of Jacob there in Egypt), that all nations would assemble at Jerusalem (…) that’s in Isaiah 18:1 and 3. And in Isaiah 27:12 and 13, is where He sounds that ‘Trumpet,’ and all of the nations will recognize Israel in her homeland, God with her. Then the Bride will come to be with the Bridegroom, and the Bridegroom with the Bride; and then the great Millennium, after the whole world is destroyed by atomic power. And there will be ‘a new heavens and new earth,’ shall live forever.”
Now we can see what a great blessing God has for all of us.
Also on page 130, verse 1164, he tells us7:
“Remember, that, ‘They which are alive and remain shall not hinder those which are sleeping, for the Trump of God, that last Trumpet…’ The sixth one has just sounded. And that last Trumpet, like the last Seal, will be the Coming of the Lord. ‘It shall sound (that is, it will sound), and the dead in Christ shall rise first.’”
He also tells us something about this Trumpet on page 149; he says, verse 13338:
“Remember, that, ‘They which are alive and remain shall not hinder those which are sleeping, for the Trump of God, that last Trumpet…’ The sixth one has just sounded. And that last Trumpet, like the last Seal, will be the Coming of the Lord. ‘It shall sound, and the dead in Christ shall rise first.’ Just resting till that time.”
Now we can see how that Last Trumpet or Great Voice of Trumpet or Seventh Trumpet, which is the Trumpet or Great Voice of Trumpet of the Gospel of the Kingdom being preached and revealing the mystery of the Second Coming of Christ, it would be sounding for this end time; and all the elect of God would be called and gathered together: being called and gathered together by the mystery (of whom?) of the Seventh Seal for the gentile Church, and for the Hebrew people by the mystery of the Seventh Trumpet, which is the Coming of the Lord.
The Seventh Trumpet for the Hebrews and the Seventh Seal for the gentiles is the same: it is the Coming of the Lord. It will sound, it will play, and the dead in Christ will be resurrected in eternal bodies and we who live will be transformed.
It is under the time of the Seventh Trumpet, of that Last Trumpet —which pertains to the Seventh Seal for the gentile Church—, that the resurrection of the dead in Christ and the transformation of us who live will come, when Christ has called and gathered the elect of the Last Day in His Church, into His Mystical Body of believers. When the number of God’s elect in the Church of Jesus Christ is completed, then the dead in Christ will resurrect and we who are alive will be transformed.
Now, the seventh angel that sounds that Last Trumpet is a dispensational angel, he is a dispensational messenger. The seven angel messengers typified, represented, the dispensational angel messenger that will be on Earth in the Last Day; because the messengers of ages represent a dispensational messenger that is to come.
Always in a messenger… A dispensational messenger is typified, represented, in other messengers before him, of ages and even of past dispensations.
And the seventh dispensational messenger, who sounds the Last Trumpet, that Great Voice of Trumpet, which reveals the mystery of the Second Coming of Christ, the mystery of the Seventh Seal, which preaches, which proclaims the Message of the Gospel of the Kingdom, is the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ; and that is a dispensational prophet, which was already reflected in the messengers of the seven ages of the gentile Church.
That is why we find that many things that this dispensational prophet will be doing, the seventh dispensational messenger for the seventh dispensation, with the seventh dispensational Message, with the Message of the Gospel of the Kingdom, you see, it was already reflected in the different messengers of the different ages; and apparently it was as if some messengers fulfilled that which he is going to do; but no: they only reflected it.
For example, the Reverend William Branham, when he tells us about the Seven Seals and is opening, making known, these mysteries of the Seals, apparently he receives the Book, and apparently he is the one who opens the Seals and brings the revelation of all Seven Seals to the people; but God is giving us a preview of what will be when the number of the elect of God in the Mystical Body of Christ is completed, and then Christ finishes His Work of Intercession in Heaven, and goes out and takes the Lamb’s Book of Life, the Book of the Seven Seals (takes it from the right hand of Him that sits on the Throne, in Revelation, chapter 5), and opens it, and then comes with it to Earth and gives it to a man.
And then, that man, upon receiving that Title Deed, that Title Deed that no one in Heaven or on Earth or under the Earth was worthy to take and open, not even to look at it… Now look, Christ takes it in Heaven and then opens it, and then brings it to Earth and gives it to a man, and tells him to eat it.
Look at what is the purpose of Christ taking that Book and opening those Seals: to bring it to Earth and give it to a man to eat it. And when he takes that Book and eats it, it will be sweet in his mouth, but it will be bitter in his belly; and he has the ministry of prophecy, the prophetic ministry to prophesy over every peoples, tongue, nation and people.
In Revelation, chapter 10, verse 1 to 11, and then in Revelation, chapter 11, there we have the ministry of the one who ate the Book; and that ministry will be the ministry of an adopted son of God. By receiving the Book, the Title Deed, and eating it, it shows that he is a son of God who has been adopted. And the Title Deed is restored again to the human race: to the Church of Jesus Christ, by being given to a man, a redeemed one by the Blood of Christ.
And then, the prophetic ministry of that adopted Angel Messenger will be so great that great blessings will come upon the Church of Jesus Christ and upon the Hebrew people, and things will be seen that were never before seen manifested in the Church of Jesus Christ; in other words, the manifestation of Christ in His Church will be in all His fullness.
And what God will do in the midst of His Church will be so great that the Hebrew people will see what God will be doing through that adopted son, who will say: “This is the one we are waiting for.” But he will be a redeemed by the Blood of Christ, an elect of God redeemed by Christ, in whom Christ will be manifested in all His fullness. They will see Christ manifested in all His fullness in His Angel Messenger.
And that is the prophet of the Dispensation of the Kingdom and of the Age of the Cornerstone, the Angel Messenger that comes with the Seventh Trumpet, with that Trumpet sounding, that Trumpet of the Gospel of the Kingdom; and God vindicating him, confirming him, and God working the things that He has promised to do in this end time.
Now we have seen who is the seventh angel that sounds the Last Trumpet: it is the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ; and the Last Trumpet is the Trumpet of the Gospel of the Kingdom being preached, which revolves around the Second Coming of Christ. And the Seventh Trumpet, as the Seventh Seal, is the Coming of the Lord. It will sound, and the dead in Christ will be resurrected incorruptible, and we who are alive will be transformed.
We have seen this great mystery of the seventh angel: that is the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ, a seventh dispensational messenger for the seventh dispensation, with the Last Trumpet, the Final Message of God, the Gospel 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 Reclaiming Work.
That is the Last Trumpet: the Great Voice of Trumpet, the Trumpet of God, the Trumpet of the updated Year of Jubilee, sounding and proclaiming freedom throughout the Earth; and proclaiming that we have reached the time when the dead in Christ will be resurrected and we who are alive will be transformed, and we will all return to our inheritance; because we are heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ Jesus, our Lord9.
And we are going to return to our Family, the heavenly Family, and they are waiting for us: our heavenly Family and our heavenly Father are waiting for us with a great supper: the Marriage Supper of the Lamb in Heaven.
We will return to our Family and our inheritance, according to what has been reflected in the year of jubilee, in Leviticus, chapter 25, verse 8 to 13; where the trumpet of the year of jubilee was sounded on the 10th day of the seventh month, and freedom was proclaimed throughout the land; and all property that had been given or sold or taken for some debt, returned to its original owner; and the slaves were set free and returned to their families.
That is what God will be doing in this end time: we will return free to our heavenly Family, with an eternal and glorified body, like the body of Jesus Christ our Savior; and we will return to our inheritance: To all that Adam and Eve lost in the fall, we will return, and with an eternal body, and with all divine power restored in and to us; and we will be equal to our beloved Lord Jesus Christ.
And so the offspring of the second Adam will be restored, will be restored to eternal life, from which the first Adam fell, and therefore all the offspring of the first Adam fell. But now, through the second Adam we are restored to our heavenly Father’s inheritance, the inheritance which He gave us: to eternal life with an eternal body and with all the power and authority manifested in us, to live with Christ for all eternity as kings and priests on this planet Earth, in the glorious Millennial Kingdom and for all eternity.
It has been a great privilege to be with you this afternoon testifying to you of THE SEVENTH ANGEL SOUNDING THE LAST TRUMPET.
With the seventh angel sounding the Last Trumpet all the elect of God are called and gathered in this end time, in the Age of the Cornerstone and Dispensation of the Kingdom, in Latin America and the Caribbean; and they are prepared to be transformed and taken with Christ to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb in Heaven.
There are also many elect of God who have traveled to other nations and other continents, but the Message reaches them there as well.
May the blessings of Jesus Christ, the Angel of the Covenant, be upon all of you and upon me as well; and may He soon transform us and take us with Him to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, to Heaven, to the House of our heavenly Father; and may we be with Him in that great heavenly feast, where He will distribute the rewards to all His children, for all the works they have carried out in His Kingdom, in His Work, in His Church, each one in the age that he had to live. May the number of God’s elect be completed soon and may we all be transformed, and the dead in Christ resurrected, and all taken with Christ to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. In the Eternal Name of the Lord Jesus Christ Amen and amen.
And now, we have seen that the seventh angel, who sounds the Seventh Trumpet, the Last Trumpet…, which was reflected in the angel messengers of the different ages; and it was reflected more in the seventh angel messenger of the seventh age, because being the seventh, then it reflects more…, the seventh messenger of the seventh age reflects the seventh dispensational messenger more.
It is like the prophet Isaiah, who was speaking in chapter 53; and later, when the eunuch is reading that passage, and Philip approaches him and says: “Do you understand what you are reading”, the eunuch says: “And how can I understand, if there is no one to explain it to me?” And he says to him: “Get into the chariot,” he invited him to get in; and then the eunuch says to him: “This that the prophet Isaiah says here (it was what the eunuch was reading), this that the prophet Isaiah says here, is he saying it about himself or is he saying it about someone else?”And then Philip begins to explain to him that he is talking about another person: the Messiah10</sup>; but it seemed that he was talking about himself!
And so it has happened with the messengers of the different ages: they have spoken things that seem to be speaking of themselves, and yet they are speaking of another who will come later on: They are talking about the seventh dispensational messenger, which will come after the seven ages of the gentile Church; which will come with the Great Voice of Trumpet of the Gospel of the Kingdom revealing the mystery of the Seventh Seal, revealing the mystery of the Second Coming of Christ, and revealing the whole Divine Program for this end time in the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ; and also preaching to the Hebrew people with that Message of the Gospel of the Kingdom, and calling and gathering 144,000 Hebrews; but first he calls and gathers the elect from among the gentiles.
So you see this mystery of the seventh messenger, the seventh angel with the Seventh Trumpet, sounding that Seventh Trumpet. Did you see how simple it is? And all that was already reflected by God in the messengers of past ages, and also of past dispensations.
Now, we have seen that the Angel with the Seventh Trumpet is the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ, with the ministry of Moses and Elijah and Jesus for the Last Day.
And by hearing the Voice of Christ through His Angel, we are following Jesus Christ our Savior, the King of kings and Lord of lords.
“I follow, I follow Jesus Christ.” Just as in every age the elect followed Jesus Christ by hearing the Voice of Christ through the angel messenger that He sent. And for the end time, hearing the Voice of Christ through the Angel Messenger that He sends to His Church in the Last Day, we follow Jesus Christ every day of our life.
