Good morning dear friends and the brethren present and those in other nations. May the blessings of Christ the Angel of the Covenant be upon you all and upon me too. In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
For this occasion we read Genesis, chapter 1, verse 1, and on, where it says:
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.”
Then we read in the same chapter 1, of Genesis, verses 26, to 28, which says:
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”
And then in chapter 2, verse 7, of Genesis, says:
“And the Lord formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”
God bless our souls with His Word and permit us to understand It.
“THE SPIRIT OF THE ETERNAL ONE GIVING LIFE.”
Here in Genesis chapter 1, we see the origin of creation: God created Heavens and Earth. God is the One that gives origin to the creation. God by means of His Holy Spirit created all things, and the Holy Spirit is called nothing less than the Angel of the Covenant or Angel of God; it is through the Angel of the Covenant, through the Holy Spirit that God created all things and through Whom He spoke and speaks to the human being, and He does it by means of prophets, from Genesis to Revelation.
In Zechariah tells us that God spoke through prophets. Zechariah chapter 7, verse 11, and on, 11, to 12, says:
“But they refused to hearken, and pulled away the shoulder, and stopped their ears, that they should not hear.
Yea, they made theirm hearts as an adamant stone, lest they should hear the law, and the words which the Lord of hosts hath sent in his spirit by the former prophets.”
How did God sent His Word to the people? By means of His Spirit through the prophets. We find that the physical creation is type and figure of the spiritual creation. God first created the spiritual world, the invisible world, because what is seeing was made of that which is not seeing, and then He created the visible.
That’s why when the human being is created, it is said in Genesis chapter 1, verses 26, to 28: “Let us make man after our image.” Man would be made after the image of God, spiritual man, man-spirit, because God is Spirit, and the human being would be in the image and likeness of God, that’s why the human being is the greatest thing of the divine creation, and when He created man, it says:
“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”
And is lacking him the physical likeness which is given to him in chapter 2, verse 7, where it tells us:
“And the Lord God (in other words, the eternal One) formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”
Man was not a living soul until given the physical body, he was not a living being of this earthly dimension. Man was first created, made, in the image of God, which is a Spirit, in other words, spiritual body, heavenly body; and then was given an earthly physical likeness to live and to rule on this planet Earth, which God gave to His first son: Adam, so he would be king, the governor of this planet Earth with all the things that were and still are on this planet Earth.
You will notice when God formed the physical body from the dust of the ground, then He breathed into his nostrils breath of life, and there the spirit of life entered in, the spirit entered into the person, in the physical body that God formed from the dust of the ground; to say it more clearly: Adam in his soul and spirit, in soul and spiritual body, heavenly body, entered into the physical body and he became a living being in this and of this earthly dimension.
Before having his physical body, he was in his spiritual body heavenly body leading everything on this Earth; and would appear in the form of man or of light, because “for God makes His angels spirit, and His ministers a flame of fire.”
It is as the Angel that appeared to Moses in a pillar of fire and would speak to him and delivered the Hebrew people through the prophet Moses, who became the physical veil, the veil of flesh, through whom the Angel of the Covenant would manifest. In some occasions we find that He appeared to Moses and also appeared to Joshua in different occasions as the Prince of the Hosts of God. Chapter 5, of Joshua, verse 13, and on.
We find the Divine Program, the divine project of the creation being carried out by God Himself, called the eternal One, the Lord, Elohim, and so forth. We find that God is the One who gives life, because He is Life, and He is eternal, and He is the only One that can give life, and can create; He is the Creator.
Science is searching for the origin of creation, and the origin of the creation is God, He was the One who originated the creation by means of His Spirit, which is the Angel of the Covenant or Angel of God, or heavenly body of God, or the image of the Living God; the very Angel that delivered the Hebrew people, the very Angel that appeared to the different prophets, we find Him giving life, bringing life, bringing spiritual life first, in other words, bringing life in the dimension of the spirits, and then bringing life in the physical dimension.
Therefore, physical life is type and figure of spiritual life of another dimension, because life comes from another dimension, from the dimension of God passing through the dimension of the angels, the heavenly dimension, and from there to this dimension.
God is the Giver of life. We find that the body without life is dead, therefore, for a body to be alive it is required for that body to have spirit in it, which is a spiritual body of another dimension, which leaves the body when the time comes for the person to depart from this earthly dimension.
The one that departs is that which is within the body, the physical body remains here on earth, because that body came from the dust and will return to dust; but the person who is a living soul, along with his spiritual body which is similar to the physical body, returns back to the dimension of the spirits.
And now, in the same manner in which God carries out the spiritual and the physical creation, so much as the creation of the universe also of the human being, in the same manner He does with nations, as like Israel, of which He says: “Israel is my son, my firstborn son.” Therefore, Israel is a divine creation, a son of God, the first son of God as nation; and consequently Israel has a double blessing called the Blessing of the Birthright, and consequently as an earthly nation Israel is heir to the earthly Kingdom of God. As simple as that.
For that reason the Scripture speaks to us of the Kingdom of the Messiah and shows us that the Kingdom of the Messiah will be with Israel. As nation Israel will be the head nation of all the nations, Jerusalem will be the Capital of the world, the Capital of the Kingdom of the Messiah, where the Throne of the Messiah will be called the Throne of David, the Prince Messiah will be there as the Son of David and His Kingdom as the Kingdom of David; which will be the Kingdom of God on Earth ruling for a thousand years and thereafter will come the final judgement, and then that Kingdom of God will continue for all eternity.
Notice, the Scripture tells us that God created Israel, God by means of His Spirit is the Creator of Israel. When something is created, the one who created it, is called the father of that creation: God is the Father of Israel because God created Israel.
And now we find that Israel is the people, the model nation for the rest of the nations, which are the sons and daughters as nations of God, which will enter the Kingdom of the Messiah; therefore, their God will be the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of Israel. That’s why the Kingdom of the Messiah is shown in Zechariah chapter 14, verse 9, which says: “And in that day the Lord shall be One, and His Name One.”
There will only be but one way of teaching in relation to God, and only one way of believing in God, that signifies that the Earth by being filled with the knowledge of the glory of God, of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea, as Habakkuk chapter 2, verse 14, says, and Isaiah chapter 11, verse 9, the differences between religions will end, because all the religions want to serve God, and according to the knowledge of that religion it is that the person wants to serve God.
But when the Earth is filled with the knowledge of the glory of God, of the Lord, in the Kingdom of the Messiah everyone will have the same knowledge about God, they will know God and will render to God and will receive the full knowledge of how to serve God and will know who God is. Therefore, there will no longer be religious differences in the midst of the human family. “In that day the Lord shall be One, and His Name One.” And that will become the victory of the God of Abraham, of Isaac and of Jacob.
Now, we have that the body without spirit is dead, that is so for the physical body as also for a body of one nation, or more nations; for instance, Israel as a nation not having the Spirit of God is a dead nation, and Christianity, the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ as a Mystical Body of believers, having not the Spirit of God, is dead: the Church, Christianity is dead without the Holy Spirit, without the Spirit of God.
The Spirit of God has been giving life to each person that has heard the Gospel of Christ and has received Him as only and sufficient Savior and has been baptized in water in His Name of Christ and has been baptized with the Holy Spirit and Fire and has received the new birth, the Spirit of God has entered into that person and consequently has received eternal Life, and consequently has entered into the Kingdom of God.
Whoever does not have the Spirit of God, the Holy Spirit, has not eternal Life, what he has is a temporary life that will end for the person and he does not know when it will end, that’s why is so important while we live on Earth to make contact with eternal Life, which is Christ, so that He may give us eternal Life; that’s why He commanded to preach the Gospel to every creature, “and he that believes and is baptized will be saved; but he that believes not will be damned.” (Mark chapter 16, verses 15, to 16.)
The body without spirit is dead, and a without the Holy Spirit is dead unto eternal Life, that’s why St. Paul in Ephesians chapter 5, verse 14, says: “Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.” It is to rise from the dead in a spiritual resurrection, to arise from those who are dead unto eternal Life, it is a spiritual resurrection, a resurrection unto eternal Life, wherein God gives the person the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of eternal Life, then the person obtains eternal Life, he is alive unto eternal Life.
Thus it is for individuals, that’s why St. Paul and St. John speak to us of the blessing Christ gives to His believers; for instance, First John chapter 5, verse 10, and on, says:
“He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made hi a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave his Son.
And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.”
In other words, whoever does not have Jesus Christ the Son of God, in his soul, in his heart, by having received Him as only and sufficient Savior; in order to have eternal Life one has to have Christ in his soul, in the heart:
“These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.”
The good news for the believers in Christ is that they have eternal Life, for it was well said by Christ when He said in St. John chapter 10, verse 27, and on:
“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, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.
I and my Father are one.”
In this Scripture Christ says that His sheep hear His Voice, they hear the Gospel of Christ, which is the Voice of Christ, the Voice of God speaking and calling the sheep the Father has given Him to seek. In the very Gospel according to St. John, in chapter 10, verse 14, says:
“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.”
In other words, that Christ came to the Earth already with a commandment to lay down His life as an atonement for our sins, to lay down His life for the sheep the Father gave Him, in other words, to lay down His life for the persons that are written in Heaven in the Lamb’s Book of Life, which are the sheep of the Father, for whom Christ would lay down His life as an Atonement for our sins.
He came with a divine commission which was already planed by God since the foundation of the world. Notice, Romans chapter 5, verses 6, to 11, says:
“For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
But God commended his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
For, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son; much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.”
We have been reconciled to God through Christ, He has reconciled us unto God, He laid down His life as an atonement for our sins, He is the atonement for our sins; His death at Calvary’s Cross is the Atonement for our sins to reconcile us to God, as in Leviticus chapter 23, verses 26, to 29, in the Feast of the Atonement the people, the persons had the opportunity to afflict their souls and to ask forgiveness to God for their sins; and with the blood of the sacrifice of atonement their sins would be covered, not taken away for the blood of animals cannot take away sin, because the animals do not have soul and consequently the spirit of the animal cannot come to the person; that was only the type and figure of the Sacrifice of the Messiah, of Christ, which would come to pass according to Daniel chapter 9, to take away the sin of the world.
It is important to know that the life of the Messiah would be cut off at the seventieth week, in other words, after sixty nine weeks of the prophecy of Daniel chapter 9, verse 21, and on, it says:
“Yea, while I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, (in other words, the archangel Gabriel) whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation.
And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to give thee skill and understanding.
At the beginning of thy supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to show thee; for thou art greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision.
Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the Most Holy.
Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem, unto the Messiah the Prince, shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: (
seven weeks and sixty two weeks are sixty nine weeks) the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself…”
And now, here we have the prophecy that the life of the Messiah would be cut off after the sixty two weeks, but before that there were seven previous weeks, therefore, after sixty nine weeks the life of the Messiah would be cut off; after sixty nine weeks, because in the seventieth week the life of the Messiah would be cut off.
The Messiah would have His messianic ministry in the seventieth week, and at the middle of that week the life of the Messiah would be cut off, because He would be the Atonement that would take away sin, in Him would be fulfilled the Feast of the Atonement as the Sacrifice that would cleanse us with His Blood from all sin.
“And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself (in other words, He will not commit suicide, nor will He die of natural death. It says) and the people of the prince that shall come (this will happen at some point of time after the death of the Messiah)… and the prince of the people that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary…”
“And the people of the prince that shall come…” watch, the prince that was to come: Titus Vespasian, and the people, Rome. The romans were the ones that in the seventieth year of the Christian era, or common era, destroyed the City of Jerusalem, destroyed the walls, and crucified hundreds or thousands of Jews at the walls, and also destroyed the temple; and from there on Israel has been without temple and consequently without the presence of God.
And consequently Israel was scattered throughout the nations according to the prophecies of the Old Testament, and the prophecies of Jesus the Christ, Jesus Christ. Christ also prophesied according to the prophecies that spoke of the destruction of Jerusalem here in Daniel chapter 9, verse 26; and the Spirit of God, the presence of God, you will notice, left Israel after a certain time, It was with the apostles the day of Pentecost, and after a certain time It moved on to the Gentiles to find from among the Gentiles a people for His Name’s sake, the people that form the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, who would be in the midst of the Gentiles; although maybe many of them would be Jewish or Hebrew descendants, because the ten tribes that were scattered through the world in past times because of the two golden calves that were placed back there in the midst of the ten tribes, and that was done by Jeroboam who placed those golden calves so that the people would not go to Jerusalem to worship God and would not return to Rehoboam, king of Judah or king of the South, and would not go to the kingdom of David, but rather would remain with Jeroboam; and that was a sin of idolatry, it was paganism, it was the very religion of Babylon which they received from Jeroboam.
And for that reason those ten tribes were scattered throughout the world, and the tribes were those golden calves were placed had problems, those tribes do not appear in the book of Revelation, chapter 7, and the reason for that is that in them were placed the two golden calves, in other words, in the tribe of Ephraim and the tribe of Dan, but then they appear in the Kingdom of the Messiah.
And now, the names of those tribes were blotted out, but it will be given back to them again, so therefore if the lost tribes could not… they have tried to locate them, how much more the two tribes whose name was blotted out from under Heaven? In other words, to locate those two tribes is much harder.
But remember that Ephraim, and consequently the tribe of Ephraim is very important in the divine Program and consequently in the restoration of the Kingdom of David. First Chronicles chapter 5, shows us what God has for the tribe of Ephraim and for the tribe of Manasseh; chapter 5, of First of Chronicles says:
“Now the sons of Reuben the firstborn of Israel, (for he was the firstborn; but, forasmuch as he defiled his father’s bed, his birthright was given unto the sons of Joseph the son of Israel: and the genealogy is not to be reckoned after the birthright.
For Judah prevailed above his brethren, and of him came the chief ruler; but the birthright was Joseph’s).”
Without the birthright that corresponded to Joseph, which passed unto Ephraim and Manasseh… Manasseh represents the Jews and Ephraim represents the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. The blessing of the Birthright passes to the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, and one part passes to Manasseh: the Hebrew people which are represented in the one hundred and forty and four thousand, twelve thousand of each tribe.
Therefore, the Kingdom of the Messiah or Kingdom of God or Kingdom of David and It’s restoration requires the union of the ten tribes with the tribe of Judah, and the tribe of Benjamin, in other words, it is required for the twelve tribes to be together for the restoration; we can say the twelve tribes of thirteen tribes; if we say twelve tribes, then we are not mentioning the tribe of Ephraim and the tribe of Manasseh, but rather we are mentioning the tribe of Joseph, because from the tribe of Joseph come the tribe of Manasseh and the tribe of Ephraim.
The Blessing of the Birthright was cash by Jacob (in chapter 48, of Genesis, verse 21 and on,) upon Joseph when Jacob blessed the sons of Joseph. Joseph took his sons or grand sons of Jacob or Israel to be blessed by Jacob before dying; and since Joseph knew that the Blessing of the Birthright corresponded to the right hand; upon whom the right hand was placed and was blessed, that person received the main blessing, the greatest blessing; and Joseph had had that experience, because his father had blessed him and he knew what his father had spoken to when Jacob cast the blessing upon him had become a reality him, and whatever Jacob would speak when giving the blessing would be converted into a reality, and that’s how the blessing of Abraham passed to Isaac, and from Isaac to Jacob, and from Jacob or Israel It would pass to his sons, and the Blessing of the Birthright would be cast among them.
And the Blessing of the Birthright was going to be given to Joseph, who is type and figure of the Messiah, a man in whom we don’t find any failure throughout the biblical history; the most perfect type and figure of the Messiah, the most perfect type of Christ, a man prophet with the two consciences together.
Jacob was about ninety one years of age when he begot Joseph, therefore, he was an old man when he begot Joseph upon whom he would cast the blessing of the Birthright, and before dying, he cast the blessing of the Birthright directly upon the sons of Joseph: Ephraim and Manasseh, Joseph placed his sons before Jacob and placed the older son before the right hand of Jacob, he placed him before… before the right hand of Jacob which is the left hand of Joseph. Manasseh was placed before the right hand of Jacob, and before the left hand of Jacob was placed Ephraim.
Now, Joseph placed his sons correctly, because he placed Ephraim at his right hand and Manasseh at his left hand. And now when Jacob was to give out the blessing he placed his right hand upon Ephraim, in other words, from the right hand of Jacob went to where the right hand of Joseph was, where Ephraim was, and blessed him, and Joseph tells him: “Father, not so,” he tried to take his father’s hand away to place it upon Manasseh, and Jacob, Israel tells him: “I know it, my son I know it, Manasseh will also be a great nation, (which is Israel) but Ephraim will form multitude of nations.”
Therefore, the promises given to Abraham and Sarah that from them would come princes who would be important people, but notice how that promise has been moving, although a very great number or half, or three fourth parts or almost all of Christianity may be descendants of Israel, descendants of Abraham physically, it does not matter, they are part of the lost tribes, and the people have not been aware that a very high percentage of the people that have received Christ as only and sufficient Savior are descendants of Abraham, descendants of Israel after the flesh.
But since they are in the midst of the lost tribes, many people have not become aware that the majority of the lost tribes would be in the midst of Christianity; which is the place where the majority of the lost tribes would be found. There is a place in the Scripture of Hebrews chapter 2, verse 16, which tells us:
“For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.”
The descendant of Abraham was succored by God through Christ and His Sacrifice at Cavalry’s Cross, and not only that, but also St. Paul says in Romans chapter 4, verse 13:
“For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.”
Therefore, the inheritance of the whole world belongs to the Prince Messiah, and the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ and the Hebrew people will be co-heir with Christ, each one in the corresponding position; therefore, there will be an interlace of Judaism with Christianity, and Christianity with Judaism, because the believers in Christ will also be in the Kingdom of the Messiah. They are kings of the royal family, they belong to the heavenly Kingdom, and they are joint-heirs with Christ of all the creation.
Therefore, the friends that love Israel the most, are the believers in Christ, they are seed of Abraham by the faith in Christ, and perhaps in all times, the number of descendants of Abraham, descendants of Jacob, of Israel, has been a great number in the midst of Christianity, mainly of the lost tribes, and even more: Christiandom began with Jews also.
The Bible is a Jewish inheritance,
it is a Jewish inheritance shared with Christianity, with the gentiles, because salvation comes from the Jews, said Christ to the Samaritan woman in chapter 4,of St. John, and all the things that have come to pass during these two thousand years with Christianity, it has been God by means of His Spirit creating, giving eternal Life to all the ones that hear the preaching of the Gospel of Christ and receive Him as only and sufficient Savior.
And by giving eternal Life He is creating a new race with eternal Life, first in the spiritual sphere and then in this end time will come the physical sphere which will be the physical adoption, which will be the redemption of the body, the glorification, the resurrection of those that died believing in Christ, they will rise in eternal bodies, immortal and glorified bodies with eternal physical Life, and the believers in Christ that remain alive, born again believers will be transformed, and then we will have physical eternal Life, which is the Spirit of God giving life, eternal Life in the spiritual sphere first to the soul and spirit of the person, and then by His Spirit giving physical, eternal, immortal incorruptible life, with eternal glorified bodies and young for all eternity.
When the adoption takes place, then the Intercession in Heaven which Christ has been carrying out for about two thousand years since He ascended to Heaven to intercede as High Priest after the Order of Melchizedec, He is the High Priest of the heavenly Temple, which was represented in Aaron and the rest of the high priests that interceded for the people in the temple, in the most holy place, on the tenth day of the seventh month of each year, and also in other occasions in which they prayed for the people.
But the Intercession for the person to be reconciled with God was in the tenth day of the seventh month of each year of the Feast of Atonement for the people to be reconciled with God for a year, and then the following year they had to do the same thing, and thus it is also with Israel as a nation.
The promise for Israel is that they will be restored. A restoration is coming for Israel, shown in the dry bones of Ezekiel chapter 37, verse 1, to 14, wherein God asks Ezekiel when He showed him a valley full of dry bones, and tells him: “Can these bones live? Ezekiel tells Him: “O Lord God, thou knowest. And begins to explain to Ezekiel everything concerning those dry bones, and tells him: “Son of man, can these bones live? And I said: Lord thou knowest.
And again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord. (In other words, the Word of the eternal One, the Word of the Lord).
Thus saith the Lord God unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live.”
When the spirit enters into a baby that baby lives, he has earthly life; while the spirit has not entered, a body without spirit has no life, he is not alive physically, to live on this Earth, the spirit is needed, because the spirit is what gives life:
“And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the Lord (in other words, the eternal One).
So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.
And when I beheld, lo, sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.
Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord God; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.”
Notice, although the bones had come together, sinews had appeared, flesh came up on the sinews and upon the bones, and then skin upon the flesh, but they were still without spirit, and a body without spirit is dead, dead unto life, that body cannot enjoy life and consequently that body becomes a house which is not occupied by the soul and the spirit of a person:
“So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army (when the spirit comes upon them then they become an exceeding great army).
Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.
Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; (
in other words, thus says the eternal One) Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.
And ye shall know that I am the Lord, (
in other words, the eternal One), when I have open your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,
and shall put my Spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the Lord have spoken it, and performed it, saith the Lord.”
This prophesy shows us what God will be doing in this end time. Israel is found as a free and sovereign nation; the bones have come together, sinews, flesh and skin have come together, but the only thing lacking is that the Spirit which has been throughout the nations seeking and calling a people for His Name’s sake, may return to Israel under the ministry of the Holy Spirit in the ministries of the Two Olive Trees and of the Prince Messiah. That’s how the Spirit of God will return to Israel.
For not having the Spirit of God for approximately two thousand years that have transpired it is that Israel has had so many problems; it is that the sacrifices had to be done in the temple, and if there is no temple then there are no sacrifices, and if there are no sacrifices then there is no atonement, and if there is no atonement, then there is no reconciliation to God. For the believers in Christ the Atonement is Christ with His Sacrifice on Cavalry’s Cross, they have an Atonement for their sins, no problem with them.
Now, the Scripture also tells us in Hosea chapter 5. verse 15, and chapter 6, verse 1, and on:
“I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offense, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me early.
Come, and let us return unto the Lord: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.
After two days will he revive us…”
They are not days of twenty four hours, but rather they are days consisting of a thousand years each, “because a day for the Lord is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as a day.” (Second Peter chapter 3, verse 8, and Psalm 90, verse 4).
“After two days (two thousand years) he will revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.”
In other words, in the third day, in the third millennium, in the third millennium of those three millenniums, which are the last days, which are represented in Thursday, (first of the last three days), Friday, (second day of the last days) and Saturday, (the last day of the three last days) which if we count it from the previous Sunday it becomes the seventh day, and the last three days are the last days of the week; just as in seven thousand years the last three thousand years are the fifth millennium the sixth millennium and the seventh millennium, and already the first two thousand years of the last three thousand years from Christ to the present, have transpired, because in the days of Christ they were already living in the last days, they were living in the first of the last days, the fifth millennium. Hebrews chapter 1, verse 1, to 3, tells us:
“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 (
in other words, by Jesus Christ), whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds.”
Here we have again the origin of creation, God through Christ, God through the Angel of the Covenant, God by means of the Holy Spirit which is Christ in His heavenly body created all things, He spoke into existence all things. And also in the book of Acts chapter 2, Peter says that God through the prophet Joel said that in the last days God would pour out of His Spirit upon all flesh, and “whoever shall call the Name of the Lord shall be saved.” You can look for it in the book of Acts chapter 2, and in the book of Joel chapter 2, also verse 21, to 29, you will find that information there.
And now, we are already in the Last Day which is the seventh millennium from Adam to this time or third millennium from Christ to the present: if the numbers do not square for someone and he does not understand that we are in the seventh millennium from Adam to the present time, then try to find the years that are lacking, because for surely you have missed a few years of history, so that you may understand that we are already in the Last Day for which there are great blessings for Christianity and for Israel, for the Hebrew people, for the Jews.
It is for the Last Day that the promise of the Coming of the Messiah for the Jews and for the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ will be fulfilled; in the meantime the Spirit of the eternal One is giving eternal Life to all those that receive Christ as Savior, and giving eternal Life to His Church, and will also give Life to Israel.
When it says He will rise them, that’s a revival for Israel, a spiritual awakening coming for Israel; it is always in the revivals, in the spiritual awakenings that God gives life to the person that receive the blessings of that revival, the blessings of God.
It is for the third day, already from Christ to the present time two of the last three days have transpired, and we are at the third day of the last days before God, of the last three millenniums, wherein God will give them life, He will resurrect them, God will give them a spiritual resurrection, a revival, a spiritual awakening, and the blessing for Israel is great.
Therefore, they being already a free and sovereign nation, waiting for the Coming of the Messiah, and waiting consequently for this revival, wherein the Spirit God, the Holy Spirit will return to Israel to give them that revival, to give them eternal Life; that will be the Spirit of the eternal One giving life to Israel in the Last Day, just as He has been giving eternal Life to all those that hear the preaching of the Gospel of Christ and receive Him as only and sufficient Savior, and has been giving eternal Life to His Church, His Mystical Body of Believers, and will also give physical eternal Life also to all the believers in Christ that have died physically, and to those that remain alive in the Last Day, He will give them physical eternal Life, which will be the redemption of the body, the transformation of our bodies, then we will have young, eternal, immortal and glorified bodies and inter-dimensional bodies, that’s why Jesus said that they will be as angels, that will not marry or are given unto marriage.
“THE SPIRIT OF THE ETERNAL ONE GIVING LIFE.”
From age to age He has been imparting eternal Life to all those that receive Him as only and sufficient Savior; for that is the preaching of the Gospel of Christ, so that the sheep of Christ, which the Father gave Him, could hear, as Christ says:
“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me, and I give them everlasting life; and shall never perish, and no man can snatch them from my hand.
My Father which gave them me, is greater than all, and no man is able to snatch them from my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one.”
(St. John chapter 10, verse 27, to 30).
It also says: “I have also other sheep which are not of this fold; which I must also bring,” and He tells us that they will hear His Voice:
“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.”
The Fold is the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Shepherd is Jesus Christ, the Shepherd of shepherds, the Bishop of our salvation, and the sheep, who are they? All the believers in Christ to whom He gives eternal Life.
Already the believers in Christ have eternal Life, and what they are lacking is the physical eternal Life wherein Christ will give them a physical glorified body with eternal Life. It is as simple as that, and the Spirit of the eternal One continues doing that, giving eternal Life.
If there is anyone that has not yet received Christ as Savior, you can do it at this moment and we will be praying for you so that Christ may receive you in His Kingdom, may forgive you and with His Blood may cleanse you of all sin, and you be baptized in water in His Name and Christ may receive you in His Kingdom, may place you in His Kingdom with eternal Life, and in that manner the Spirit of the eternal One may give you eternal Life.
Those that are in other nations may also come to the Feet of Christ, and those present also, if you have not received Christ as Savior yet, and the children of ten years and older may also come to the Feet of Christ our Savior.
The most important thing for the human being is eternal Life, there is no other thing more important, and if this life is so important, how much more eternal Life; without life other things have no value. Life is needed in order for us to appreciate the rest of the things. The eternal Life is the greatest Treasure that God gives us through Christ our Savior:
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
This is the greatest expression of God’s love toward us when He sent Christ to Earth to die for us.
Let us all stand to pray for the persons that have come to the Feet of Christ our Savior, those in other nations may also stand so that you may be included in the prayer that we will be doing within a few seconds.
With our hands raised to Christ, to Heaven:
Our Father who are in Heaven, I come to You in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ with all the people that are receiving Christ as only and sufficient Savior in the different places. Father, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ receive them and place them in Your Kingdom. In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ I beg You.
And now the ones that have come to the Feet of Christ in these moments, repeat this prayer with me:
Lord Jesus Christ, I heard the preaching of Your Gospel and Your faith was born in my heart. I believe in You with all my soul, I believe in Your first Coming, I believe in Your death at Calvary’s Cross as the Sacrifice of Atonement for our sins, and I believe in Your Name as the only Name under Heaven given unto men in which we shall be saved.
I acknowledge that I’m a sinner and need a Savior, a Redeemer. I testify publicly of my faith in You and of Your faith in me, and I receive You as my only and sufficient Savior. I beg You to forgive my sins and to cleanse me with Your Blood of all sin and may You baptize me with Holy Spirit after I be baptized in water in Your Name, and I beg You to produce in me the new birth.
Lord, make a reality the salvation You purchased for me at Cavalry’s Cross. I beseech You in Your eternal and glorious Name, Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
With our hands raised to Heaven, to Christ, we all say: !The Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ has cleansed me of all sin! !The Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ has cleansed me of all sin! !The Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ has cleansed me of all sin! Amen.
Christ with His Blood has cleansed us from all sin and has justified us before God and sanctifies us with His Blood and with His Spirit leads us in His way, in His divine Program under the new Covenant, being covered with the Blood of the new Covenant, the Blood of Christ our Savior.
At the last supper Christ said: “Drink ye of it all,” when He took the cup of wine and gave thanks to God saying: “Drink ye of it all, for this is my Blood of the New Testament which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” In the wine He represented, typified, His Blood of the new Covenant, of the eternal Covenant, as St. Paul says in Hebrews chapter 13, verse 20 to 21.
Those that have come to the Feet of Christ will say to me: “I want to be baptized as soon as possible, for Christ said: “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved. When can I be baptized? is the question from the inwards of your heart. You can certainly be baptized for you have believed in Christ and have received Him as only and sufficient Savior.
In the baptism in water which is typological, the person identifies himself with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection. Water does not take away sin, it is the Blood of Christ that cleanses us of all sin, but water baptism is a commandment of the Lord Jesus Christ which is typological and in which we identify with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection.
Therefore, you may be baptized, and may Christ baptize you with Holy Spirit and Fire and may He produce in you the new birth, and we will continue to see each other eternally in the Kingdom of Jesus Christ our Savior.
I leave with you the minister Jose Benjamin Perez at this moment so that he may continue, and in each nation I leave you with the relevant minister so that he will let you know what to do to be baptized in each place and nation at this moment.
Continue having a happy afternoon full of the blessings of Christ, and we will see each other Sunday God willing. Good afternoon to you all.
“THE SPIRIT OF THE ETERNAL ONE GIVING LIFE.”
