Good afternoon, kind friends and brethren gathered here in Palpala, Argentina. It is a great privilege to be with you, to share with you a few moments around the Divine Program relevant to this end time in which we are living.
For which I want to read in the book of Revelation, chapter 2 and verse 7, where God, Christ, tells us:
“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.”
May God bless His Word and vivify it for us, make it alive, and thus bless our souls with His Word.
This Scripture that we have read is good news for the human race.
The human being, when he was in the Garden of Eden, he had the Tree of Life in the midst of the Garden of Eden, in the midst of the Paradise that God had established on Earth; and this was the greatest blessing that the human being had there, in the Garden of Eden, in Paradise, where God had placed the human being.
And now, you see, according to what Genesis says, any man who eats from the Tree of Life lives forever; and there is nothing more important for the human being than eternal life.
All human beings have wished to live eternally (with an eternal body, of course, because you can’t live eternally with a body that is not eternal). And now, we find that after the fall of the human being in the Garden of Eden the human being lost the right to eat from the Tree of Life. If the human being ate from the Tree of Life, he lived forever.
The human being had been placed on the planet Earth, in the Garden that God had made there, and the human being was being tested; Adam with his wife were being tested: they had to live a season on Earth, and after that they would be adopted.
Now, notice, the Tree of Life was there; but for the human being to be able to eat from the Tree of Life, the Tree of Life had to become flesh. Because the Tree of Life that appears in Genesis, as the one that appears in the book of Revelation, is the same, it is the same Tree; and that Tree is our beloved Lord Jesus Christ. That is why Christ says1: “I am the way, the truth and the life, and nobody comes to the Father but by me.” He is the Tree of Life.
And you see, through the Scripture we also find that God represents human beings on trees as well. For example, we find in Matthew, chapter 3, John the Baptist preaching; it says in chapter 3, verse 10 and on:
“And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.”
What is he talking about? About human beings being typified in trees. It says:
“I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. but he that cometh after me (in other words, after me) is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:
Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner…”
And the wheat that He will gather in His Barn are the sons and daughters of God. In the parable of the wheat and the tares, the wheat represents the children of the Kingdom, the children of God, and the tares represent the children of the evil one2. And it says:
“…but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.”
Now we can see how God compares or represents or symbolizes human beings with trees, with wheat, with tares; and we also find that the Hebrew people, composed of human beings, is compared with the fig tree as well3.
And now, the Tree of Life is Christ, which is the one that gives Life to the human being.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The same was in the beginning with God.
All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
In him was life; and the life was the light of men.”
And who is he talking about here? The God creator of the Heavens and the Earth, which in Genesis, chapter 1, verse 1, says:
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”
That is in Genesis, chapter 1, verse 1; and here in John, chapter 1, verse 1 to 18, it speaks to us about the Word that was with God and was God, who created all things.
It is the same God, who being in His theophanic body, called the Word of God, being in His theophanic body He created all things; the whole universe was created by the Word that was with God and was God.
And then verse 14 of that same chapter 1 of John says: “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.” And when He became flesh and dwelt among the human beings we knew Him by the name of Jesus.
See who our beloved Lord Jesus Christ: He is nothing less than the Word made flesh.
And the Word is the same God in and with His theophanic body, which then created a body of flesh in Mary’s womb, creating a cell of life, which multiplied cell upon cell and formed the body of Jesus, in which God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, dwelt.
That is why Isaiah, in chapter 7, verse 14, calls him Emmanuel, which translated is: God with us. It says: “For the Lord himself shall give you a sign (in other words, a sign): Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and his name shall be called Immanuel (which translated is: God with us)4.”
In other words, just as God made the human being in His image and likeness, now God visiting the human beings is made in the likeness of the human being becoming a body of flesh, which He created in Mary’s womb, which was born through the virgin Mary in Bethlehem of Judea.
That was the visitation of God, the divine visitation in the midst of the Hebrew people, God among the human beings to carry out the Work of Redemption of the human being; for that body to be crucified and die, as the animals that were sacrificed in the midst of the Hebrew people died for sin.
That is why those animals that were sacrificed in the midst of the Hebrew people, to God (for sin), worked, the blood of those animals covering sin; and God accepted it, because those little animals were the substitute of the human beings, the substitute of the sinner.
And now the substitute of the human being are no longer little animals: the substitute of the sinner is our beloved Lord Jesus Christ, who took our sins and died for them on Calvary’s Cross, so that we may receive eternal life, so that we may live eternally with God.
Now we can see who our beloved Lord Jesus Christ is and we can see why the Hebrew people offered to God those sacrifices, which were effective in the form pertaining to that time; but after Christ died on Calvary’s Cross, from there on God no longer accepts sacrifices of animals for sin, because we already have a perfect Sacrifice, made by our beloved Lord Jesus Christ; and the only thing the human being has to do is to accept, receive that Sacrifice for himself (or for him), and thus wash our sins away in the Blood of Christ and receive His Holy Spirit, and thus receive eternal life.
He who doesn’t receive Him as his Savior, what happens to the person? His sins are there, in the person, and are seen by God; therefore, that person has serious problems before God, because the wages of sin is death5. And that is why, when the sinner dies, he can’t go to Heaven, he can’t go to Paradise, why? Because his sins were not taken away from him; therefore, he has to go to the fifth dimension, which is hell.
And whose fault was that? The person, because he didn’t take the Sacrifice for sin, made by Jesus Christ to take away his sins, so that the Sacrifice of Christ on Calvary’s Cross becomes effective in the person.
Now notice how the same thing that the Hebrew people did in Moses’ time and the time of the kings, we find that it is what the human being does, but now not with animal sacrifices but with the Sacrifice of Christ on Calvary’s Cross, which was already carried out; and now we, by receiving Him as our Savior, His Sacrifice becomes effective in our lives.
Did you see how simple everything is? Now we don’t have to be looking for little animals to be sacrificed, nor do we have to be going to the temple there in Jerusalem, but rather, the Sacrifice has already been carried out.
And Jesus Christ, who is the Lamb of God and is also our Atonement (represented in the goat of the sacrifice that was carried out on the 10th day of the seventh month of each year in the midst of the Hebrew people), now, Christ is also the High Priest. Priests or high priests of the Hebrew people are no longer needed to carry the blood of atonement to the most holy place, because we already have a High Priest, called the Lord Jesus Christ.
But anyone can say: “But Jesus Christ didn’t belong to the Levites; He was not a descendant of Aaron to be a high priest.” But Jesus is not the High Priest of the temple that was in Jerusalem: He is the Melchizedek who appeared to Abraham6, and Melchizedek is the Priest of the Most High God of the Temple that is in Heaven.
And that is why when Christ died and resurrected, ascended to Heaven and presented His own Blood there in Heaven; He placed it on the Most Holy Place, He placed it there in the Most Holy Place of the Temple of God in Heaven, upon the Throne of God, upon the throne or seat of intercession; and He has been making intercession as High Priest there in Heaven, before God’s presence, for the reconciliation of the heavenly Israel, whose names are written in Heaven, in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
And those are the ones who come to this Earth, to this planet Earth, they spend a season of time on this Earth…; and the purpose of coming to this planet Earth is to make contact with eternal life.
Just like our physical body, to come into existence it has had to make contact on this Earth in a way that scientists have already discovered; in other words, our genes have had to be manifested on this Earth through the union of mom and dad, and so our physical body could come into existence. Otherwise our physical body can’t come into existence, in which we have appeared on this planet Earth to live a season of time here and make contact with the Eternal Life, which is Christ; and thus to eat from the Tree of Life, which is Christ.
And when a person believes in Christ as his Savior and washes his sins away in the Blood of Christ and receives His Holy Spirit: he has eaten from the Tree of Life, and Christ says he has eternal life. Why? Because he has eaten from the Tree of Life.
That is why in John, chapter 5, verse 24, Christ says:
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”
And in John, chapter 6, verse 40, says:
“And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.”
Do you see the great blessing in believing in Christ as our Savior, washing our sins away in the Blood of Christ and receiving His Holy Spirit? The blessing is eternal life. Why? Because He is the Tree of Life.
And when we believe in Him and wash our sins in His Blood and receive His Spirit, we have received eternal life, because we have eaten from the Tree of Eternal Life, which was in the Garden of Eden; and which became flesh two thousand years ago and lived among the Hebrew people and was known —the Tree of Life— with the name of Jesus. That is the name of the Tree of Life when it was manifested in human flesh two thousand years ago in the midst of the Hebrew people.
And when we receive His Word by believing in Him, we are eating of Him. He said7: “Whoever does not eat my flesh and drink my blood has no life abiding in him.” Because no person has life abiding in himself; the life he has is a temporary life, but he doesn’t get eternal life; he can’t even do anything to avoid death. The person who lives on this Earth can do nothing to avoid dying; when that time comes, he dies.
But those who have believed in Christ have been born again, and have the promise of a resurrection on the Last Day; and the Last Day is the seventh millennium, which has already begun if we add to the calendar the years it is behind.
Now, we can see that there is a great blessing in the Tree of Life. What does the Tree of Life have? Well, eternal life; and whoever eats from this Tree, lives eternally.
Now, anyone can think: “There are millions of people who have believed in Christ, and Christ has said that they have eternal life, and have died.” What has died is only his physical body, but the person has continued living: he is living in Paradise, in the theophanic body that he received when he received the Spirit of Christ, by believing in Christ. And for the Last Day, which is the seventh millennium, he will be resurrected in an eternal and glorified body, just like the body of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ. And then he will remain young for all eternity: he will never get sick, he will never get old and he will never die; he will have a body that will be representing, for all eternity, 18 to 21 years of age in appearance.
Now see why the human being, after he fell, he had to be taken out of the Garden of Eden; because it says in chapter 3, verse 22 and verse 24, of Genesis:
“And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.”
Because no person could eat from the Tree of Life to live forever, until the Tree of Life became flesh and thus died on Calvary’s Cross and paid the price of redemption. No person could live eternally with the mortal body, corruptible and temporary, continue to live here on Earth; the one who lived the longest was Methuselah8.
And now, see how Christ died on Calvary’s Cross, for what? So that the human being can eat of the Tree of Life, which is Christ. And whoever passes through this planet Earth has the opportunity to eat of the Tree of Life.
Christ said9: “I am the living Bread which came down from Heaven; and whoever eats of this Bread will live forever.” In other words everyone has heard these things and has had the opportunity to eat of the living Bread that has come down from Heaven: of Christ, the Tree of Life; and whoever has not done it and dies, well, he lost his chance to live eternally; and whoever took advantage of that opportunity and ate, will live eternally. It is as simple as that.
Now we can see who the Tree of Life is: our beloved Lord Jesus Christ. That is why He, speaking of eternal life, always identified Himself as the one who had eternal life; He identified Himself as the Eternal Life and the one who gave eternal life to the human beings.
For example, in Lazarus’ case, when He went to resurrect Lazarus, He was talking to Martha, Lazarus’ sister, in chapter 11 and verse 23 and on [John]; and Jesus said to Martha:
“Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.
Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.”
Why did Martha say she knew he was going to resurrect on the Last Day? Well, Jesus had already taught that, to His believers, He would resurrect them on the Last Day, the believers in Him who would physically die later.
Being that the resurrection is for the Last Day, all the believers in Jesus Christ, from the time of Christ and the apostles to this end time, all who lived in those past times had to die; therefore, they will be resurrected on the Last Day, which is the seventh millennium.
But in the seventh millennium there will be a group of elect who will see the Second Coming of Christ and most of them will remain alive; some will leave, will depart, but most will remain alive.
And when the dead in Christ resurrect, those people who will remain alive but will have seen the fulfillment of the Second Coming of Christ with His Angels, and will have heard the Great Voice of Trumpet, the Voice of Christ, which is the Great Voice of Trumpet of the Gospel of the Kingdom: those people, since they have been chosen by God to remain alive and be changed, they will be changed when the dead in Christ resurrect; and that will be the majority of God’s elect of the Last Day. Although some will have to depart, but not all; and they will be, those who will depart, they will be witnesses of the resurrection when they resurrect in the eternal body.
Now see how Christ continues saying here:
“Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.”
The person, even though he dies physically, he will be resurrected at the Last Day in an eternal body; because the only thing of the person that has died is the physical body, but his spirit is living, because his spirit is a body from another dimension: a theophanic body of the sixth dimension, a body similar to our body but from another dimension, and that is why he goes to Paradise in that body; but the person himself is a living soul.
The human being is body, spirit and soul. What a person really is is a soul, but he has two bodies: one body called the spirit and another body called the physical body.
And now God has promised for all believers in Jesus Christ, who have washed away their sins in the Blood of Christ and have received His Holy Spirit, He has promised an eternal physical body and a theophanic body of the sixth dimension, eternal as well.
And the theophanic body of the sixth dimension is the first one we receive, and we receive it when we believe in Christ as our Savior and wash our sins away in the Blood of Christ and receive His Holy Spirit; and therefore we receive the new birth.
There we receive that theophanic body of the sixth dimension: by believing in Christ as our Savior, by believing in the First Coming of Christ and His Work of Redemption. And the Gospel of Grace is the one that contains the revelation of the First Coming of Christ and His Work of Redemption on Calvary’s Cross.
And for the Last Day, we will receive, in addition to the theophanic body of the sixth dimension, we will receive the physical and eternal body.
And that is why the Second Coming of Christ is so important for the people of God; because with the Second Coming of Christ being fulfilled, and the elect of God seeing it fulfilled and believing in His Second Coming and His Reclaiming Work, in the Last Day and for the Last Day we receive the faith, the revelation, to be transformed and raptured.
Thus we receive the rapturing faith, the revelation of rapture and transformation: by hearing the Word of God, the preaching of the Gospel of the Kingdom, which revolves around the Second Coming of Christ and His Reclaiming Work for the Last Day.
And now, notice, we have already believed in the First Coming of Christ and we have received the theophanic body of the sixth dimension; and what remains is to receive the eternal physical body. And that blessing is linked to 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.
And those who will see His Coming at the Last Day will be the ones who will receive that revelation, that faith, to be transformed and raptured and taken to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb in Heaven. They will be eating of the Tree of Life in His Second Coming to be transformed and raptured, and thus to be taken to the House of our heavenly Father, to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.
Just as we have eaten of the Tree of Life in His First Coming, for this end time the elect would also be eating from the Tree of Life at His Second Coming; in addition to eating of the Tree of Life in His First Coming and receiving salvation, receiving the new birth.
Now, we can see what a great blessing the Tree of Life has for each of you and for me too.
I need to be transformed, in order to have an eternal and glorious body like the body of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ, and you need it too.
Therefore, when the number of the elect of God in the Mystical Body of Christ is fulfilled and completed, then Christ will come out from the Throne of Intercession in Heaven and will claim back all that which He has redeemed with His Blood, and will resurrect the dead in Christ in eternal bodies, and He will transform us who are alive; and all that will be so because we have eaten of the Tree of Life, which is Christ, as well as those who have lived in past ages have also eaten of the Tree of Life, which is Christ.
Now notice, for this end time we would all be eating of the Tree of Life; both of the Tree of Life in His First Coming, believing in Christ as our Savior and washing our sins away in the Blood of Christ, and eating of the Tree of Life in His Second Coming as the Lion of the tribe of Judah, so that at the Last Day we would have the faith to be transformed and raptured, according to the divine promise.
Now see what a great blessing there is for all of us in this end time.
We need to eat of the Tree of Life, His Word, receive His Word and eat that Word, in order to receive the blessings of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ.
We have seen that for this time in which we live, the human being would have at his disposal the Tree of Life to eat of Him; just as since the days of Jesus until now the human being has had the opportunity to eat of the Tree of Life, which is Christ, by believing in Christ as our Savior and washing our sins in the Blood of Christ and receiving His Holy Spirit, and thus receiving eternal life.
He who eats of this Tree, has eternal life; because He is the Tree of Life that was in the Garden of Eden and He is the Tree of Life of the book of Revelation.
He was in the Garden of Eden in His theophanic body but He had to become flesh so that man could eat of Him and live eternally. But before that, the human being fell, couldn’t be adopted, couldn’t eat of the Tree of Life and live forever, and be adopted and continue to live and bring forth his children —Adam and Eve— through divine creation.
The way for children with eternal bodies and with eternal life to come is by divine creation. And that is what the second Adam with the second Eve, which is His Church, has been doing: the sons and daughters of God are being brought by divine creation.
First we obtain the birth in the sixth dimension, by a theophanic body of the sixth dimension being born for us, by believing in Christ as our Savior and washing our sins away in the Blood of Christ and receiving His Spirit. And it will come into existence on the Last Day, by divine creation, the physical and eternal body that He has promised for each of you and me too.
And so shall all the sons and daughters of God be, the descendants of the second Adam, with eternal bodies and eternal life, to live for all eternity and reign with Christ in the Millennium, in the Millennial Kingdom, as kings and as priests, and for all eternity.
Now, we have seen the second Adam bringing sons and daughters by divine creation.
Some people have thought: “Our beloved Lord Jesus Christ never married and never had children.” And you want to know something? He is the man who has had more sons and daughters, but by divine creation; not by being with a woman but by divine creation: producing a new creation in people who believe in Him as their Savior and wash their sins in His Blood, He gives them His Spirit and thus producing the new birth. And now we belong to a new race, of which Christ is the head, Christ is the first10.
In Revelation, chapter 3, verse 14, it says that Jesus Christ is the beginning of God’s Creation; He is the first of that New Creation of beings with eternal life. And now the only thing we are missing is the physical and eternal and glorified body that He will give us in this end time, in the Last Day, which is the seventh millennium.
Now, what year of the Last Day? We don’t know, but He has promised it. He has promised to resurrect the dead in Christ at the Last Day and then to transform all of us believers who are living in this end time, and are listening to the Great Voice of Trumpet, which is the Voice of Christ speaking to us in this end time and making known to us all these things that must happen soon, in this end time; and thus revealing to us the greatest mystery of all mysteries: the mystery of 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.
And so that there is no confusion in the midst of human beings and that many people don’t rise up, some on one side and others on the other, saying that they have the truth or that they have the revelation of Christ, do you know what Christ says in the Scripture, in the book of Revelation? Chapter 22, verse 16:
“I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches.”
It says that He has sent His Angel; this Angel is a prophet, the prophet of the Dispensation of the Kingdom with the Message of the Gospel of the Kingdom, which is the Message of the Great Voice of Trumpet; so that there is only one man, only one prophet messenger, to testify of all these things and everyone can know the Program of God for this end time.
And he is sent to testify of these things in and to all the churches. In other words, all the churches have the greatest blessing of all time: a messenger sent by Jesus Christ testifying of all these things in this end time, so that there will be no differences.
Thus there will be only one Message: the Message of Jesus Christ through His Angel Messenger testifying of all these things that must happen soon, in this end time; and thus revealing the mystery of the Second Coming of Christ, a mystery that is contained in the Message of the Gospel of the Kingdom; because the Message of the Gospel of the Kingdom revolves around the Second Coming of Christ, as the Message of the Gospel of Grace revolves around the First Coming of Christ.
Now see how for this end time Jesus Christ would send a dispensational prophet with a dispensational Message to His Church, making known all these things that must happen soon, in this end time; and thus giving us the faith, the revelation, to be changed and raptured, which is the revelation of 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.
Now, we have seen how the Tree of Life is Christ in the midst of the Paradise of God. Just as the Paradise of God was the Garden of Eden there, the Paradise of God on this Earth is the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.
And Christ, the Tree of Life, has been in the midst of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ giving eternal life to all who have received Him and have believed in Him and have washed their sins in His Blood; and have eaten, therefore, of Christ; they have received His Spirit and therefore have received the new birth.
And Christ continues in the midst of His Church in this end time, to give us to eat of Himself in this end time; so that we may eat of His Second Coming as we have eaten of His First Coming; and that is to be eating of the Tree of Eternal Life.
It has been a very great privilege for me to be with you on this occasion, testifying to you of THE TREE OF LIFE IN THE MIDST OF GOD’S PARADISE
By eating of the Tree of Life in His First Coming we obtain the new birth and we obtain a theophanic body of the sixth dimension. And in addition to that, for the Last Day, by eating of the Tree of Life in His Second Coming, we will receive, in addition to the theophanic body of the sixth dimension, we will receive the eternal and glorified and physical body, like the body of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ.
Did you see how simple everything is? And did you see the great blessing there is for those who eat of the Tree of Life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God, in the midst of His Church?; to which is sent, by Jesus Christ, the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ to testify of all these things that must happen soon, in this end time.
May the blessings of Jesus Christ, the Angel of the Covenant, our Savior, be upon all of you and upon me as well; and may the number of God’s elect be soon completed; and may all the dead in Christ resurrect in their eternal bodies, which Christ will give them, and we which are alive be transformed; and may we all be taken with Jesus Christ to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, to Heaven, to the House of our heavenly Father. In the Eternal Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen and amen.
