Good evening, beloved friends and brethren present, viewers and radio listeners.
May the blessings of Jesus Christ, the Angel of the Covenant, be upon each one of you and upon me as well, and may He open our understanding tonight and the scriptures to comprehend His Word and be able to see “THE SEVENTH SEAL AND THE RECLAIMING WORK,” which is our topic for this occasion. In the Eternal Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen and amen.
In Revelation, chapter 8, verse 1 to 6, it says:
“And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.
And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.
And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.
And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand.
And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.”
May God bless our souls with His Word and allow us to understand It.
This passage speaks to us about the Seventh Seal, of this Book sealed with seven seals, which appears in Revelation, chapter 5, verse 1, where it tells us:
“And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne (in other words, at the right hand of God) a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.
And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?
And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.
And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.”
What such important book is this one with the seven seals at the right hand of God in Heaven, which no person was found worthy of taking the Book and opening it? That Book is the Book of Redemption, it is the Title Deed of the Heavens and of Earth; and it is at the right hand of God. And while the years and the ages of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ have passed, that Book has been fulfilled from stage to stage.
And since it is the Title Deed of the entire Creation, just as a person has a title deed, whether it is of land, a certain property, his name appears in that book, in that title deed or document; and if that person has been subject to an invasion of their property, no matter how it has been, the person reclaims his property in Court; and even if the invaders made another title deed, another document, to adjudicate to that property, the original title deed shows who the original owner is.
And the original owner, if they had not sold it to that person, well the other person has a false title, and it is seen in Court, it is discovered, which one is the good correct title and which one is the fake one.
Now, when God placed the human being on this planet Earth, He gave the human being this planet Earth as inheritance.
God is the owner of the entire Creation, therefore He is the Creator and the owner; therefore, He is the One who has the Title Deed; which he had granted to Adam, but with the sin at the Garden of Eden, the Title deed returned to the original owner: to God; and this planet Earth remained illegally in the hands of the devil.
The human being lost the right to eternal life, lost the right to an eternal body, lost the right to eternal health, lost the right to eternal youth and to all the eternal things contained in the Title Deed.
And since the human being has not had that Title Deed since his fall, but rather it has remained at the right hand of God, the human being is born, grows up, lives a period of time here on Earth eating, drinking, working, and then he dies. But while that happens in the midst of the human race, God has opened the doors to eternal life to him, which is Christ, and who said1: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
He is the Path to eternal life, He is the Path to the Father, He is the only Truth and He is the Eternal Life.
“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,” says Jesus in chapter 5 of John and verse 24.
He has passed from death to life; because when the human being is born on this planet Earth he is already born with death, because he is born to then die; he lives here for a period of time and then he dies, because of the original sin there at the Garden of Eden; but he has the opportunity of making contact with eternal life to thus have eternal life.
When the person believes in Jesus Christ as our Savior and washes his sins in the Blood of Christ and receives the Spirit of Christ: he has received eternal life, he has been born in the Kingdom of God, he has been born in the Mystical Body of Christ; and therefore, he has a theophanic body from the sixth dimension, which is also called the Angel of the Lord who encamps around us and defends us.
Now, notice how the Program of Redemption begins for the human being; and for the Last Day, what there is for the human being, for those who have believed in Christ as their Savior and have washed their sins in the Blood of Christ, and have received His Spirit and therefore they have been born again, their part is the transformation of their bodies if they are alive; and if their physical bodies have died, their part is the resurrection of the dead in Christ in eternal bodies. And all of this corresponds to the end time, which Christ spoke about in the gospel according to John, chapter 6, verses 39 to 40, saying:
“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.”
We have seen two occasions, in these two verses, where Christ says: “And I will raise him up at the last day.” This is a promise for His believers who have physically died; and the promise for those of us who are alive is that we will be transformed. We will be transformed and then we will have an eternal body, that is, we will return to the eternal life with an eternal body too; to live for all eternity with our beloved Lord Jesus Christ, and reign with Christ for one thousand years and then throughout all eternity.
And it is for the end time or Last Day that Christ has pointed out that He will carry out the resurrection of the dead in Christ.
And which is the Last Day? It is not a 24-hour day, but rather when it is spoken about a day before the Lord, it is a millennium for human beings; and therefore, the Last Day is the last millennium for the human beings.
In Second Peter, chapter 3, verse 8, it tells us, Saint Peter speaking about what a day before the Lord is, and let us read it so you have a clear picture of this mystery of the last days and the mystery of the Last Day. Second Peter, chapter 3, verse 8, tells us:
“But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.”
Prophet Moses also testified of this truth in Psalm 90 and verse 4. One day before the Lord is one thousand years for human beings.
When God speaks of the last days in His Word, He is speaking about the last millenniums for the human beings. When Jesus was 4 to 7 years old the fifth millennium began, and therefore the last days began.
That is why Saint Paul and Saint Peter speaking of the last days, notice what Saint Peter says in First Peter, chapter 1, verses 18 to 21, speaking of the way we have been redeemed:
“Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world (since when was Christ destined to die on Calvary’s Cross? Since before the foundation of the world), but was manifest in these last times for you.”
Christ was manifested in the last times; but that Program of Redemption for Christ to die carrying our sins was already destined by God since before the foundation of the world.
But notice, when the last days arrived, that was when the Program of Redemption was manifested, where Christ had His three year and a half ministry, and at the end of that ministry He died on Calvary’s Cross carrying our sins, and thus cleansing us of all sin.
Saint Paul also, speaking to us about the last days, tells us in his epistle to the Hebrews, chapter 1, verse 1 to 2:
“God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds.”
When does Saint Paul say that God spoke through Jesus Christ? In the last days; and two thousand years have already passed.
And why does Saint Paul say that those were the last days, when Jesus was upon Earth? Because the last days before God, for the human beings are the fifth millennium, sixth millennium and seventh millennium.
See that there is no contradiction in the Scripture? It is because for the human beings, from Christ until now, two thousand years have passed, but before God only two days have passed; because one day before the Lord is as a thousand years for the human beings and of the human beings.
And now, notice how in the week itself we have the types and figures of the last days: in the fifth day of the week, which is Thursday; the sixth day of the week, which is Friday; and the seventh day of the week, which is Saturday. Those three last days of the week represent the three last millenniums. And in one week of God, before God, the last three days of the week typify or represent the three last days before God.
And now, seeing this mystery and seeing what the last days really are, we also see that Paul and Peter agreed that those days in which Jesus lived were the last days. And we are still living in the last days, because the last days are the fifth, sixth and seventh millennium.
If we add to the calendar the years of delay it has we are already in the seventh millennium, we are in the millennium where at some year of that seventh millennium Christ’s promise: “And I will raise him up at the Last Day” (because that seventh millennium is the Last Day before God and is also called the Day of the Lord), in some year of that seventh millennium, Christ will resurrect the dead in Christ in eternal bodies, and those of us who are alive, the promise is the transformation: He will transform our mortal bodies. That is the divine promise to be fulfilled in the Last Day.
Now, what things will be happening in the Last Day so that the resurrection of the dead in Christ and the transformation of us who are alive can come? The promise, for example, in First Thessalonians, chapter 4 and verses 14 and on, it says:
“For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Wherefore comfort one another with these words.”
They are comforting words for all those who believe in our beloved Lord Jesus Christ, since for the Last Day, Christ will be manifested with Acclamation, in other words, Commanding Voice, with Voice of Archangel and Trumpet of God. That is how the Coming of Christ is promised, the Coming of the Lord for the Last Day.
And now, First Corinthians, chapter 15, also speaks to us of this great event and it tells us that we will be in the image and likeness of the second Adam, it says [verse 49]:
“And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly (in other words, of Jesus Christ).
Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”
When will be the resurrection of the dead in Christ and the transformation of us who are alive be carried out? After the Final Trumpet or Great Voice of Trumpet has given His Message, has sounded.
This Final Trumpet or Great Voice of Trumpet of which it speaks to us here in the scripture, is the Trumpet of the Gospel of the Kingdom sounding, that is, the Message of the Gospel of the Kingdom being preached at the Last Day.
“For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.”
Now we can see that that is the time for death to be taken away from the sons and daughters of God, that is the time for the sons and daughters of God to obtain immortality in the body; and thus obtain an eternal body, a glorified body, a body like the one of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ.
We find that this mystery is the one that would be opened in the end time, so that we may comprehend all these things that must happen, so that the resurrection of the dead in Christ and the transformation of us who are alive can happen.
The forerunner of the Second Coming of Christ, Reverend William Branham from North America, said in the book of Quotations… these quotations are taken from different messages that he preached, and on page 47 of the book of Quotations in Spanish, verse 402, which is an excerpt from the message “The Ten Virgins,” preached in 1960, he says, speaking about this Final Trumpet or Great Voice of Trumpet, and of the resurrection of the dead in Christ. He says:
“‘For we which are alive and remain unto 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 announcing of His coming. ‘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.”
Here we have a clear picture of what the resurrection of the dead in Christ and the transformation of us who are alive will be in the Last Day. The promise is that the Final Trumpet will sound, that Great Voice of Trumpet; and that is the Gospel of the Kingdom being preached, it is the Trumpet of the Gospel of the Kingdom, the Gospel of the Kingdom being preached and revealing the mystery of the Coming of the Lord, the mystery of the Coming of the Son of Man with His Angels, as Christ promised in Matthew, chapter 16, where He tells us in verse 27 to 28 the following, and I want to read it so you may have it just as it was spoken by our beloved Lord Jesus Christ; it says:
“For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.”
That is the Coming of the Son of Man with His Angels; and that mystery of the Coming of the Son of Man with His Angels is the greatest mystery of the Heavens and of Earth; and that mystery is the mystery contained in the Seventh Seal, which was opened in Heaven and caused silence in Heaven for about half an hour.
In other words, the angels, archangels, cherubim and seraphim that worshipped God in Heaven, and the people that were there in Heaven, stopped singing, stopped praising God; there was silence for about half an hour in Heaven, half an hour from Heaven. And why was it caused? Because of the opening of the Seventh Seal there in Heaven.
That mystery contained in the Seventh Seal is the Coming of the Son of Man with His Angels for the Last Day, in other words, for the seventh millennium, which is the Day of the Lord, wherein the promise is that the Final Trumpet or Great Voice of Trumpet will sound.
The trumpet of the year of jubilee typifies that Final Trumpet. The trumpet of the year of jubilee appears in Leviticus, chapter 25, verse 8 to 13, and it was sounded on the tenth day of the seventh month, at the 50th year, that is, the year of jubilee.
All the properties that had been taken from the rightful owners due to a debt or due to a sale, for which God says that the Earth is His and its fullness2, the land ⏤God says⏤ cannot be sold forever; therefore, the land was sold in the midst of the Hebrew people, and then in the year of jubilee it returned to its original owner.
That is why the sale of properties was according to the years that remained for the year of jubilee. If a property was sold and 49 years remained for the year of jubilee, it was worth a certain amount; but if there was only one year left for the year of jubilee well the property was worth less, because the one who bought it could only take advantage of the property for one year, and then he would have to return it in the year of jubilee.
And that is typifying or representing what will happen with the sons and daughters of God at this end time, because the year of jubilee speaks to us about the liberation.
Just as the Hebrew people were delivered there in Egypt, the deliverance of the sons and daughters of God will also take place; we will be delivered or liberated, and we will be freed from mortality or death, we will be free of sickness, we will be free from everything that is temporary; because we will obtain an eternal body. We will be changed and then we will be immortal, we will be people with eternal health, with eternal youth and with the entire divine power that God will grant His children in the time of the redemption of our mortal body, which comes with the Final Trumpet or Great Voice of Trumpet.
The trumpet that sounded in the year of jubilee, the tenth day of the seventh month, every 50 years, its message was that the year of jubilee had arrived and it proclaimed freedom, it proclaimed the liberation of the slaves, it proclaimed the liberation of properties, and it proclaimed the return of the people to their families and to their properties.
Let us read here in Leviticus, chapter 25, and we will have a clear picture here of that feast that was carried out in the midst of the Hebrew people, which reflected what God would do with His children at this end time; and then it will also reflect what will happen after the Millennial Kingdom. Leviticus, chapter 25, verse 8 to 13, it says:
“And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years.
Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubile to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land.”
The day of atonement, wherein the high priest entered with the blood of the goat to present it before God, in the most holy place of the tabernacle Moses built and, then, of the temple Solomon built; through that which the high priest did, present himself with the blood of the goat there, in the most holy place, and placing it over the mercy seat, which is the throne of mercy, which is the seat of mercy there in the most holy place while the required blood was placed there.
If the blood required by God is not placed there, then that is a throne of judgment; and for the Hebrew people, we find that it was divine judgment if they did not place the blood of atonement there on the tenth day of the seventh month each year.
And now, we find that in the year of jubilee the trumpet of jubilee was played, of liberation, on the same day in which the blood of atonement of the goat was placed in the most holy place, for the reconciliation of the Hebrew people with God. If that sacrifice was not carried out, that atonement, the divine judgment would come upon the Hebrew people.
Now, notice how the trumpet was played throughout the entire land of Israel:
“And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof (what was proclaimed? Liberty in the entire land for all its dwellers): it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession (in other words, our inheritance), and ye shall return every man unto his family.”
For every person who had been sold as a slave, or was given away as payment due to a debt; in the year of jubilee, that person was freed and returned to his family and returned to his inheritance.
“A jubile shall that fiftieth year be unto you: ye shall not sow, neither reap that which groweth of itself in it, nor gather the grapes in it of thy vine undressed.
For it is the jubile; it shall be holy unto you: ye shall eat the increase thereof out of the field (in other words that each one returned to their inheritance, which he had lost somehow or had given it away due to something).”
And now, this updated Year of Jubilee in the sons and daughters of God will make us return to our inheritance of eternal life, with an eternal body, with eternal health, with eternal youth and with the divine power, which is an eternal power to be manifested in each one of the sons and daughters of God; and for all to have an eternal body, a glorified body, and for all to be in the image and likeness of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ.
And this is all to be fulfilled under the Seventh Seal and the Reclaiming Work; because after those 49 years have passed and then reach – we reach the 50th year, where it is the year of redemption for the Earth and for those who live in the land of Israel and for all those who were enslaved for some reason.
Now notice how the entire Divine Program that God would carry out is represented in the feasts that God gave to the Hebrew people.
Do you remember the Passover? Which was celebrated in Egypt for the exit of the Hebrew people from Egypt. The blood of the paschal lamb was placed on the lintel of the doors – of the door and posts of the house where the family was gathered so that death would not enter the house, because it was a time, a night in which death would be killing all the firstborn in Egypt; but the only thing that would deliver the firstborn from death was the applied blood of the paschal lamb, and being inside of that house eating the paschal lamb.
Then the Hebrew people would carry out that feast of the Passover each year in the first month; the Passover on the 15th and on the 14th they would sacrifice the paschal lamb in the afternoon; in other words, the lamb died on the eve of the Passover. And then they would take it inside and they would eat it roasted.
Notice, it was not how the people wanted to do it, but rather the way God had established.
And the blood had to be applied on the lintel and posts of that house’s door; and that was the guarantee that the firstborn who were inside that house would not die; if there was a firstborn, he would not die. And if there were two families and they were together because they were small, the firstborn of each of the families would not die either, for he was in the house where the blood was applied and where the paschal lamb was being eaten.
Christ fulfilled that type and figure and He is our Paschal Lamb, He is our Passover; and the Blood of Christ has to be applied in our souls, in our hearts, and we must be eating of the Lamb.
Christ said3: “Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.”
Now, notice how each one of you as an individual, as a house, must have the Lamb inside your soul, inside your heart: Christ, having received Him as your Savior; and you must have His Blood applied on the lintel of the door of your heart; and you must, as a sign that you have applied the Blood of the Lamb in your soul, in your being, you must have the life of that Blood, which is the life of the Lamb of God, which is the Holy Spirit.
That is why Christ said: “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of Heaven or the Kingdom of God. Except a man be born of Water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God,” said Christ to Nicodemus.
And that is why it is required to believe in Christ as our Savior, wash our sins in the Blood of Christ and receive His Holy Spirit; and thus He enters into our being, our life, and we are a temple for God, a house for God; and we are also in a Mystical Body of believers called the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, which is the House of God, the spiritual Temple of Jesus Christ.
In that House, notice, it is the place where the Blood of Christ is applied on the door. Christ is the Door, and the Blood of the Lamb is applied there. One enters to that House through that Door and receives the Spirit of Christ in that House; and one enters into a safe House: the spiritual food for the sons and daughters of God is inside; that is where we eat the flesh of the Son of Man and we drink His Blood.
It is not to literally eat the flesh or literally drink blood, as many people thought when they heard Christ speaking these words. It is: having received Christ as our Savior and receiving His Word every day of our lives and having the Blood of Christ applied in our soul, and having the life of Christ manifested in our life; the life of Christ: the Spirit of Christ.
Now we see the safe House where God would place His children, His firstborn; that is the place where He calls and gathers together His elect to have them there safe, so that they may not die, but rather live eternally.
It does not matter if the physical body dies, Christ said: “He that heareth my word, has everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”
And there in that House, the House of Christ, His Church, we are safe: with eternal life; and it is there, being in the Church of Jesus Christ, that for the Last Day, when the Trumpet of God, the Final Trumpet, the Trumpet of the Gospel of the Kingdom has given entire His Message, which revolves around the Second Coming of Christ with His Angels and His Reclaiming Work, when that entire Message has been given, then the dead in Christ will resurrect first, in eternal bodies, and us who are alive will be transformed; because Christ makes the Reclaiming Work and reclaims everything He redeemed with His precious Blood.
Saint Paul speaking of this mystery to the Church of Jesus Christ and speaking of the Hebrew people, tells us in his epistle to the Romans, chapter 11, verses 25 to 28, 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.”
What is the fullness of the gentiles, what does “until the fullness of the gentiles be come in” mean? That means: until the last of the elect of God has entered, of the firstborn of God, in the Mystical Body of Jesus Christ; in other words, until the fullness of the sons and daughters of God has entered into the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, until the very last of the elect of God whose name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life, has received his redemption; until the very last of the elect has entered to be a member of the Mystical Body of Christ; because Christ is on the Throne of Intercession in Heaven, making intercession with His own Blood there as High Priest in the Temple that is in Heaven; just as the high priest made intercession in the tabernacle Moses built and the temple Solomon built.
That is what the high priest of the order of Levi or Leviticus did, so did Aaron and the descendants of Aaron, so did the high priests each year. And now, to minister in the Temple that is in Heaven, the High Priest, notice, is not from the Leviticus order but rather of the Order of Melchizedek, it is an eternal Order.
That Melchizedek who appeared to Abraham, to whom Abraham paid tithes, and who gave bread and wine to Abraham, and blessed Abraham; that Melchizedek is the Lord Jesus Christ Himself.
Melchizedek the Priest of the Temple that is in Heaven, the High Priest, came to Earth in human flesh and was known by the name of Jesus; the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us and was known by the name of Jesus; and He carried out the Sacrifice just like the high priest did in the temple.
And then with the Blood of that Sacrifice He entered into the Most Holy Place when He died, resurrected and ascended to Heaven; and as High Priest He presented His own Blood: the Blood of His own Sacrifice as the Lamb of God. And in Heaven, throughout these two thousand years that have passed, He has been interceding upon the Mercy Seat, which is the chair or seat of mercy in Heaven, where God is. And He is still there interceding for those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life, in other words, their names are written in that Book of the Seven Seals.
And when the last elect has entered into the Mystical Body of Christ, well He will conclude or the intercession of Christ will have finished in Heaven as High Priest with His own Blood; and then He comes out of the place of intercession, He makes His Reclamation of everything He redeemed with His precious Blood, He takes the Title Deed, the Book of the Seven Seals, opens it in Heaven and brings it to His Church, it is opened to be given to His Church; and He reclaims the entire divine inheritance.
And since the elect of God are joint-heirs with Christ, they are heirs of God, in order for the sons and daughters of God to receive or return to their inheritance and to their possession and to their heavenly family, notice, the year of jubilee is updated at this end time and Christ reclaims us and He will be placing us in an eternal body, He will be restoring us to eternal life with an eternal body, He will be restoring us to our inheritance, our property, to everything Adam and Eve lost in the fall.
We will all be restored and we will live with Christ for all eternity as kings and priests, as children of the High Priest Melchizedek, the High Priest of the Temple that is in Heaven. And that is why we are also priests, of the heavenly Order, of the Order of the Temple that is in Heaven. Not of the Leviticus order but rather the Order of Melchizedek; just as Christ also is: not a priest, He is not a high priest of the Leviticus order, but rather of the Order of Melchizedek.
He is the High Priest of the Temple that is in Heaven, and for that reason, throughout these two thousand years that have passed, He has been interceding in Heaven as High Priest of the Temple that is in Heaven; and He is still there making intercession.
But soon the number of the elect of God will be completed and thus the fullness of the gentiles will have entered; and then, he that is filthy, let him be filthy still; in other words, there will no longer be a way to be cleansed by the Blood of Christ.
It says in chapter 22, verse 11, of Revelation: “He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.”
Now, we can see that a time will come where there will no longer be an opportunity for human beings to obtain mercy, but rather they will have to abide by the divine judgments that will come from the Throne of God, the Most Holy Place of the Temple that is in Heaven.
And that is shown in Revelation, chapter 8, when the Seventh Seal is opened in Heaven. It says in verse 5: “And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.”
What is coming from the Throne of God in the Temple that is in Heaven? The thunders, voices, lightings and an earthquake are coming out. That speaks about the divine judgments for the human race at the Last Day.
That is also why in chapter 11 of Revelation, verse 15 and on, it tells us:
“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 (that is when Christ takes that Title Deed).
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.”
It speaks to us of the blessings for the saints, for the prophets, for the just, for the great and small; this speaks to us about the Marriage Supper of the Lamb in Heaven, where Christ will be handing out His rewards to all the prophets, saints, apostles, all the believers in Christ, in that great feast of the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. Which, in an earthly wedding it is always called “the reception.”
The marriage is carried out in one place and then the reception is carried out where the food and the gifts are; and who receives more gifts? Well the Bride is the one who receives more gifts.
Now notice how the Marriage Supper of the Lamb will be in Heaven, in the House of our heavenly Father. Christ said4:
“In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again (that is His Second Coming with His Angels), and receive you unto myself (why ‘unto myself’? Because we are His Mystical Body of believers)<em>; that where I am, there ye may be also.”
And that is how He will take us to the House of our heavenly Father.
And while we are in that great feast of the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, the entire planet Earth will be going through a stage of three and a half years of divine judgments, called the divine judgments of the great tribulation or plagues, where God’s wrath will be poured out.
That is “the day of vengeance of our God” for those who destroy Earth; that is the day of vengeance of our God for those who did not take advantage of time by receiving Christ as their Savior; that is the day of vengeance of our God, which all the people who did not believe in Christ as their Savior, washing their sins in the Blood of Christ and received the Spirit of Christ, will go through; therefore, they appear without oil in their lamps, represented in the foolish virgins.
But those who believed in Christ as their Savior, washed their sins in the Blood of Christ and received His Holy Spirit, they appear as the wise virgins who had oil in their lamps.
And what happened with the wise virgins in the Coming of the Son of Man? In Matthew, chapter 25, verse 10 to 13, it says:
“And while they went to buy (oil, of course, the foolish virgins), the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.”
Who are the ones who were prepared? The ones who had oil in their lamps, the ones who had received the Spirit of Christ, and therefore they had received the new birth and thus they had already entered into the Mystical Body of Christ; they were inside the House where the Paschal Lamb was and where the Blood of the Lamb was.
“Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.”
Because the Son of Man coming with His Angels is the Bridegroom coming. And the wise virgins are the ones who enter with the Bridegroom, they receive the Second Coming of Christ with His Angels, and they enter into that union with Christ; they enter into that union called “marriage.”
Because what is marriage? It is the union of two beings who love each other, of a man and a woman; and when they get married they come to be, those two persons come to be one flesh. And thus it is with Christ and His Church in the Marriage of the Lamb, where the wise virgins enter with the Bridegroom, they enter into the Marriage, and the door is closed.
Christ is the Door of entrance to the Dispensation of the Grace, Chris is the Door of entrance to the spiritual Temple of Jesus Christ, which is His Church; Christ is the Door of entrance to the Fold of the Lord, which is His Church. And when all the sheep have entered into the Fold, the door will close; when all the elect have entered into the Mystical Body of Christ, the door will close; and no one else will be able to enter through it to receive salvation. When the very last elect has entered, then the fullness of the gentiles has entered, and then the door will be closed.
How will this Door be closed? According to the Word of God, that Door will be closed by the one who will have the divine commission to close that Door.
In the parable of the faithful and prudent servant, and the faithful and prudent steward, we find something very important, which we cannot ignore; because a great mystery is expressed there, and it is the mystery of where God places His children, His elect, from age to age. Where does He place them? In His House, in the House of God, which is His Church.
Saint Paul in his epistle to the Hebrews, chapter 3, tells us the following, and we read. Chapter 3, verse 5 to 6:
“And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after;
But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.”
Notice which is the House of God. God no longer has that house called “the tabernacle” which Moses built in the midst of the Hebrew people; neither does He have that house called “the temple” that king Solomon built; those were earthly and temporary houses. But Christ our Lord has been building a House for God with living stones, with human beings; and that House is the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ for God to dwell in Spirit in that House.
Saint Paul spoke to us about this in his epistle to the Ephesians, chapter 2 and verses 19 to 22, and he tells us:
“Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God.”
Perhaps many people have desired to be a member of the royal family of England or France or an important nation, to say: “I am royalty.” But look, the true and eternal Royalty is the Divine Royalty; and God is the eternal King, and He has children; therefore, those children, which are the members of the Family of God, are the Royalty of the entire universe.
Being part of that Divine Family is the greatest thing that you can be: your name has been in the Lamb’s Book of Life since before the foundation of the world.
In other words, it is not that the person wants to be, but rather he already belongs to that Family since before the foundation of the world, but he had not been manifested on Earth in human flesh yet.
Just like you, regarding your physical body, came through an earthly family; but before you appeared you were already in that family, you were in your father’s loins; and through the union of your father with your mother, you came to obtain a physical body in which you appeared on Earth.
But all of that is temporary; the Divine is what is eternal. Therefore, if your soul comes from God, you are a child of God. And Christ came to redeem you and me; to thus be able to return to our heavenly Family, our heavenly inheritance and to all the heavenly power that belongs to the heavenly Royal Family, to reign during the Millennial Kingdom and throughout all eternity.
And that Kingdom will not only cover the planet Earth but rather the entire universe; because we are heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ Jesus our Lord.
Christ as the Son of Abraham is the heir of the territory of Israel; and we as children of Abraham are joint-heirs with Christ; because all those who are of the faith of Abraham – all those who are of the faith in Christ are children of Abraham; therefore, we are children of Abraham and, therefore, heirs of that land that God gave to Abraham; and that is why we are going to also be living in that territory with Christ. And Christ is the heir, the heir as Son of Abraham, of that territory.
And He is the Son of David; and as Son of David He is heir to the Throne of David. And that is why the Throne of David, the Archangel Gabriel said it would be the Throne He would inherit. He says that God would give Him the Throne of David.
And since we belong to that House of David by being born through Christ, through the new birth, by believing in Christ as our Savior and washing our sins in the Blood of Christ and receiving His Spirit, now, notice, we belong to the House of Royalty, we belong to the Royalty of David, to reign with Christ in that glorious Millennial Kingdom, that is, in the seventh millennium; and we are heirs of that Kingdom with our beloved Lord Jesus Christ.
And Christ as the Son of Man is the heir of the entire planet Earth, to reign over the entire planet Earth; and since we are His children then we also receive that benefit, and we will reign with Christ over the entire planet Earth as kings and priests.
The Order of Melchizedek, notice, covers the religious part and also the political part.
And as Son of God, Christ is the Heir of the Heavens and of Earth; and we as children of God are Heirs with Christ, of the Heavens and also the Earth.
That is why the Kingdom of Christ will be at a universal level: it will be the planet Earth and all the rest of the planets, the entire universe; but that Kingdom must begin here on Earth.
Now notice, Saint Paul continues saying… he told us that we are members of the family of God:
“And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.”
We are placed in the spiritual Temple of Christ, which is His Church, for God to dwell in Spirit in His Church, and in each one of us as individuals. And now notice the mystery of that spiritual Temple made up of human beings. And the names of the people who belong to that spiritual Temple are written in the Book of the Seals, in that Book called the Lamb’s Book of Life.
And He takes the Book, opens it in Heaven and brings it to Earth; and thus He reclaims everything He redeemed with His precious Blood, for us to then return to eternal life, be restored to eternal life.
The forerunner of the Second Coming of Christ said on page 166 of the book of Quotations, paragraph 1485: “Now, I was…” Let us see… Let us read… This text speaks to us about the Final Trumpet, it speaks to us about the resurrection of the dead in Christ and it speaks to us about the great event promised for this Last Day, which is the greatest event of all the events that are promised. And when he speaks to us about this great event he says that the Final Trumpet, that Trumpet of God, will sound and the dead in Christ will resurrect first.
Now, that Final Trumpet or Great Voice of Trumpet, just like the Seventh Seal, will be the Coming of the Lord. It will sound, and the dead in Christ will rise first, and then we who are alive will be changed. Page 1305:
“‘…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.’”
What does the Trumpet reveal? What is it that sounds? The Coming of the Lord, it reveals the Coming of the Lord, it reveals the mystery of the Second Coming of Christ. And thus the Seventh Seal, which is the Coming of Christ is fulfilled, and the Reclaiming Work is carried out for our restoration to eternal life.
It has been a great privilege for me to be with you tonight, friends and brethren present, radio listeners and viewers, testifying to you about “THE SEVENTH SEAL AND THE RECLAIMING WORK.”
May God bless you and keep you all.
“THE SEVENTH SEAL AND THE RECLAIMING WORK.”
