Good afternoon, beloved brethren and friends present, workers in this hour, workers in the Work of Christ of this Last Day, gathered here in Cayey, Puerto Rico, and also there in Venezuela (in Valencia is it?), in Arenosa of Valencia.
May the blessings of Jesus Christ be upon each one of you here present, and also those gathered there in Arenosa, Venezuela. May God bless you, may He use you greatly in His Work in this Last Day, in this time where the Work of the Harvest of the end of the world and of the Last Day is being carried out. In the Eternal Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen and amen.
Miguel, may God bless you greatly and all the ministers who are gathered there in Venezuela, and may God use you greatly in His Work, as well as those present here; and may He open more Scriptures to us relevant to this Last Day in order to understand them, so that those Scriptures may be fulfilled; because to fulfill the prophecies, to fulfill what God has promised to His people, they have to believe it; and to believe it, God allows them light so they can hear it, they can understand it there in their soul and in their whole being; and thus it becomes a reality, it becomes flesh in each one of us.
It is a great blessing for me to be with you here in Cayey, Puerto Rico, and with you also there via telephone line in Venezuela.
At this time, as we have seen, we are seeing THE WORK OF THE HARVEST AT THE END OF THE WORLD AND IN THE LAST DAY, of which Christ spoke in Matthew… first in Matthew, chapter 13, verse 30 to 43, where He told us as follows, it says:
“Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.”
And in chapter 13 also, verse 36 to 43, Christ explaining the parable, when they said to Him: “Explain to us the parable,” He says:
“Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.
He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;
The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;
And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father.”
Now we can see that this is a promise to be fulfilled, when? In the end time, that is, at the end of the world. And at the time when we are seeing the tares being piled up, and we are seeing the wheat being gathered, and we are seeing the ministry of the Angels of the Son of Man: We will be living in the end of the world, of which Christ spoke here in this parable; and the wheat, He says that it will be gathered…
In Matthew, chapter 3, John the Baptist also speaks to us, saying… chapter 3, verses… let’s see here: Verse 7 and on, of chapter 3 of Matthew, thus says the prophet John the Baptist:
“But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:
And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.
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.
I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. but he that cometh 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; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.”
Now, see here how John the Baptist also speaks to us of the Work of the gathering of the wheat; Work that is appointed to be carried out at the Last Day, where the Harvest is carried out, and where the wheat is placed in God’s barn.
Now, we are living in the end of time or end of the world, as our Lord Jesus Christ spoke to us. At the end of the world, according to the calendar used among the gentiles, we are living in 1998, and in about two years we will reach the year 2000, where the 2000 years from Christ until now are completed, and where (according to the calendar of the gentiles) we reach the end of the 20th century and we reach the end of the 2000 years from Christ until now.
And now, notice how, according to the calendar of the gentiles, we are living at the end of the world, at the end of the 20th century, for it is coming to an end (it is just a few years away); but look, we have to take into consideration these prophecies that speak of the end of the world.
See, in Matthew also, chapter 13, verse 47 to 50, Jesus Christ spoke again of the end of the world, saying:
“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:
Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.
So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,
And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.”
Now we can see how also in this parable Christ speaks of the end of the world, He says that the Angels being sent to carry out this work, corresponds to the time of the end of the world.
In other words, the great sign that mankind would be living in the end of the world, would be what? The presence of the Angels of the Son of Man, the presence of the ministries of the Two Olive Trees, which are the ministries of Moses and Elijah; ministries that Christ in Holy Spirit will be manifesting in the Last Day through human flesh; and through those ministries He will be calling and gathering all His elect, as it says in Matthew 24, verse 31: “And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect.”
And Christ also taught us in Matthew, chapter 16, verses 27 to 28, that the Son of Man will come with His Angels. Wherever the Son of Man is, which is Jesus Christ in Holy Spirit manifested, the Angels of the Son of Man will be there, which are the ministries of Moses and Elijah; because the Angels come with the Son of Man, and where the Son of Man is manifested, Jesus Christ in Holy Spirit manifested, the Angels of the Son of Man will also be manifested there, which are the ministries of the Two Olive Trees, the ministries of Moses and Elijah. 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.
Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.”
Now notice, the Coming of the Son of Man is in His Kingdom and to His Kingdom, it is to His Church, which is the Kingdom of God or Kingdom of the Heavens; and we find that it is the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ that will have the Coming of the Son of Man with His Angels in the Last Day, in other words, at the end of the world, for the Work of the Harvest; Work that the Son of Man will be carrying out with His Angels, according to the prophecies.
That is why we find that on Mount Transfiguration, Christ was there showing Peter, James and John the Coming of the Son of Man in His Kingdom; and because He said He would come with His Angels, His Angels appeared there, which are Moses and Elijah.1 It is the ministries of Moses and Elijah that will be in the Last Day in the midst of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, where Jesus Christ will be manifested in Holy Spirit, according to His promises, and He will be manifested with these ministries, operating them also in the midst of His Church.
In other words, the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ in the Last Day, in the end time, at the end of the world, will have the most glorious stage of all her stages, she will have the Golden Stage, which will be the stage of the Age of the Cornerstone, where the Coming of the Son of Man with His Angels will be a reality for the great harvest or gathering of all the elect of God. And there will be many ministers who will be filled with the knowledge of this Divine prophetic Program relevant to the Last Day, and they will be working arm in arm with the ministry of Jesus Christ in Holy Spirit, the ministry of the Son of Man manifesting the ministries of His Angels too, the ministries of Moses and Elijah.
That is why Christ in Revelation, chapter 22, verse 16, says:
“I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches.”
So that His Church may obtain the knowledge of all that will be happening at the end of the world, in which we are already living; and thus obtain the knowledge of all this Divine Work relevant to the Last Day and the end of the world, which is THE WORK OF THE HARVEST AT THE END OF THE WORLD AND THE LAST DAY, that is, the seventh millennium. This is the Work relevant to this end time, for the gathering of all the sons and daughters of God.
And just as the Work of the calling of the sons and daughters of God was carried out in each age, in the territory relevant to each age where each age was fulfilled…
For example, the first age among the gentiles was the age represented in the church of Ephesus, and that age was fulfilled in Asia Minor, and its messenger was Saint Paul; then the second stage or age was the age represented in the church of Smyrna, and its messenger was Irenaeus, and that age was fulfilled in France; and so on and so forth we find that there was in different territories, different nations, an age being fulfilled: The first in Asia Minor; the second in France (France, a territory of Europe); the third also in France and another territory; and so forth we find that there were five territories there in Europe, which were the fulfillment of the second, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth ages of the gentile Church.
In the European territory there were fulfilled (how many ages?) five ages or five stages of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ; and that is why God sent there those five angel messengers, where the Spirit of Christ was manifested; because that manifestation of the Spirit of Christ in those five angel messengers, plus in Saint Paul (the first angel messenger), plus in the seventh angel messenger, the Reverend William Branham: They are the seven spirits of God that travel throughout the Earth2</sup>; they are those seven manifestations of the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of God traveling throughout the Earth, through Asia Minor, Europe and North America.
And those were the men anointed by the Spirit of God for those seven stages or ages of the gentile Church. They were Saint Paul, Irenaeus, Martin, Columba, Luther, Wesley and our beloved brother William Marrion Branham.
The seventh stage or age of the gentile Church was fulfilled in North America; and that is why it was in North America that God raised up the Reverend William Branham: he was born in North America, and He fulfilled His Program relevant to the seventh age of the gentile Church through him.
Then we find that the Laodicean Age has come to an end. And then what is left for human beings? Well, the most important part remains, which is the Golden Age, the Age of the Cornerstone.
And that is why, in the trajectory of the Spirit of God, of Jesus Christ in Holy Spirit, the Angel of the Covenant, the Angel of the Lord, the Pillar of Fire, in His trajectory, notice, He started in the land of Israel, then He went to Asia Minor, then He went to Europe, then He went to North America; and all this moving in each angel messenger. It went from one messenger to another, and from one territory to another, and from one age to another.
And now, after His seventh manifestation through the Reverend William Branham in the seventh stage or age of the gentile Church, and then in the gap between the seventh age and the Age of the Cornerstone; after that, where did the Angel of the Covenant, the Angel of the Lord, the Pillar of Fire, which is Jesus Christ in Holy Spirit, go to? Where did He go to? Well, He went to Latin America and the Caribbean.
And that is why Latin America and the Caribbean is the territory where the Age of the Cornerstone is being fulfilled, and where —therefore— the call of the Great Voice of Trumpet or Last Trumpet has emerged, the call of the Last Trumpet has arisen calling and gathering the elect of God in this end time, in the Great Harvest at the end of the world. Now see how simple everything has been.
That is why for Latin America and the Caribbean there was the promise of Jesus when He said:
“I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches.”
That Angel Messenger is a prophet messenger, the prophet of the Dispensation of the Kingdom with the Message of the Gospel of the Kingdom, for the Age of the Cornerstone and for the Dispensation of the Kingdom.
And now, nobody knew where that Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ would appear, that messenger of Jesus Christ; but now, through the Divine Blueprint, we have seen how that Divine Blueprint has been fulfilled in the land of Israel, in Asia Minor, in Europe, then North America. And now, the secret was: Where this final stage would be fulfilled. And now we have seen that it would be Latin America and the Caribbean.
It is the same blueprint that we find in the tabernacle built by Moses and the temple built by King Solomon. That is the blueprint that was used, because that is the blueprint that represents the Temple that is in Heaven. That is why the temple that Solomon built and the tabernacle that Moses built are type and figure of both the Temple that is in Heaven and also of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, which is the New Temple that Christ has been building.
And just as in the occident, that is, in the west, the tabernacle of Moses and the temple of Solomon had the most holy place, so also in the spiritual Temple of Christ —which is His Church— the Most Holy Place would be in the West.
The seven stages or ages of the gentile Church correspond to the Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Christ, and the Age of the Cornerstone corresponds to the Most Holy Place.
And now, see in which part of the spiritual Temple of Christ is Latin America and the Caribbean; and the elect of this Last Day look where they are in the spiritual Temple of the Lord Jesus Christ. That is why the promise of being transformed is for the elect of the Last Day, for the elect of the end of the world, who would be in the Last Day, in the stage of the Most Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Christ, in a new dispensation; just as we find that the seven ages of the gentile Church were in the Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Christ, under the Dispensation of Grace; and so we can see how the elect of past ages were placed in that Holy Place.
But now He is calling and gathering His elect in the Age of the Cornerstone, which is the Age of the Most Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Christ, in a new dispensation: The Dispensation of the Kingdom; so that all may receive the faith, the revelation, to be transformed and raptured in this Last Day, the revelation of the Second Coming of Christ and His Reclaiming Work.
Just as we have received the faith to obtain the new birth, to be transformed internally; and from a spiritual body, from a spirit of the world, to obtain then a spirit of Heaven, a spirit or theophanic body of the sixth dimension, by means of obtaining the revelation, the faith, of that inner transformation, which is the revelation of the First Coming of Christ as the Lamb of God in His Work of Redemption on Calvary’s Cross.
No person can obtain the new birth without believing in Christ as his Savior, and washing his sins in the Blood of Christ, and receiving the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Jesus Christ.
And no person can be transformed while alive, without seeing and believing the Second Coming of Christ; because the faith for the rapture revolves around the Second Coming of Christ as the Lion of the tribe of Judah, as King of kings and Lord of lords, in His Reclaiming Work. He said [ John 14:2-3]:
“…I go to prepare a place for you.
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”
And that is why He calls us and gathers us in the Age of the Cornerstone, where the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ in this end time would be to be transformed and raptured, according to the promise of Jesus Christ. No person who is living in the end time and is in another stage, in another age, will be able to be transformed.
Like in the First Coming of Christ: The promise of the new birth, you see, was for those who would believe in the First Coming of Christ and His Work of Redemption on Calvary’s Cross. It didn’t matter, or doesn’t matter, if people were believers in Moses and his Message; that was good, but that alone was not enough to obtain the new birth. And only believing in John the Baptist and his baptism, and being baptized by John, it was not enough to receive the new birth with that. It was required to receive the First Coming of Christ and to believe in His First Coming and His Work of Redemption on Calvary’s Cross.
The disciples of John the Baptist, we find that they believed in John the Baptist and his Message, and believed that after John the Baptist would come another prophet, who would be the Messiah, of whom John said he was not worthy to untie the latchet of His shoes3</sup>; but not all the disciples of John the Baptist followed Jesus, the man to whom John was forerunning, to whom John was preparing the way; except a group of John’s disciples, like John the apostle and like Peter’s brother Andrew:
When they heard John say: “Behold the Lamb of God,” what did they do? Well, they left John and followed Jesus.4 Now, it was not that they despised John, nor that they ceased to believe in John, but that they were good believers in John.
And those who stayed with John, for they didn’t understand the great blessing of the coming of the forerunner and the foreman.
A forerunner is to prepare the way, but the forerunner says: “He that cometh after me is greater than I.” “It is expedient for Him to increase and for me to decline,”5 said John the Baptist.
So, who is to be followed? First we have to follow the forerunner, see what he is saying, and then follow the foreran; for he comes to prepare the people to receive the foreran.
Those who followed Jesus did well. It was not that they despised John, but that they got a good preparation and understood that John came to prepare the people to believe in the One who would come after John the Baptist.
Saint Paul also taught this in the book of Acts, chapter 19, when he met some disciples of John the Baptist. Chapter 19 of the book of Acts, verse 1 and on, says:
“And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples,
He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.
And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John’s baptism.
Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.”
Now, notice what the Message of a forerunner is for: To teach the people that after him comes another, and that they may believe in the one who is to come after him.
And those who believed in Jesus (who came after John the Baptist), after Jesus died, resurrected and ascended to Heaven, then on the Day of Pentecost, who were the ones who received the Holy Spirit? Those who had believed (in whom?) in Jesus.
Many of them had been disciples of John also, but then they followed (after following the forerunner), then they followed the foreran. And of those who received the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost, there was not one (who had been a follower of John the Baptist) who had not received Jesus. The followers of John the Baptist who didn’t follow Jesus didn’t receive the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost.
That is why Saint Paul encounters a group of them, many years later, and asks them if they had received the Holy Spirit, and they say: “Neither do we know that there is a Holy Spirit.”6 Look how late these disciples of John the Baptist were.
And in order to receive the Holy Spirit, you see, they had to believe in the First Coming of Christ and His Work of Redemption on Calvary’s Cross; believing just in John was not enough.
And for the Last Day we have the promise that we will all be transformed, we will all be filled with the fullness of the Holy Spirit; and it will not be enough to be only a believer and follower of the forerunner of the Second Coming of Christ, but it will be a requirement to also believe in the Second Coming of Christ as the Lion of the tribe of Judah in His Reclaiming Work. Those are the ones who will be transformed in this Last Day, they will be filled with the fullness of the Holy Spirit; plus the dead in Christ who will be resurrected: The dead in Christ of past ages will be resurrected in eternal bodies.
Now, you see how for this end time God is calling and gathering His elect in the Work of the Harvest at the end of the world or of the end of the world, and also of the Last Day.
And we have been privileged to be chosen by God to be workers in His Harvest Work at the end of the world, to work arm in arm with the ministry of Jesus Christ, the Angel of the Covenant, who in this end time would be operating it (that ministry) in this end time in the midst of His Church, and would be manifesting the ministries of Moses the second time, of Elijah the fifth time and of Jesus the second time; those are the ministries for the Harvest at the end of the world.
And all of us, arm in arm with those ministries, would be in this end time working in the great Work of the Harvest at the end of the world. So we are privileged people, privileged ministers, privileged workers in this Last Day and in this end time or end of the world.
We are in the most important Work that is being carried out on this planet Earth. There is no other more important work on this planet Earth than THE WORK OF THE HARVEST AT THE END OF THE WORLD, in which we are living.
This is the Work of Christ, of God, promised for this end time; and we have been allotted in Latin America and the Caribbean to be the people benefited with THE WORK OF THE HARVEST AT THE END OF THE WORLD.
So let’s work in His Work with all our soul, with all our heart, with enthusiasm, with understanding, and without limit of time, and without limit of schedules, without limit of anything; working with all our soul, because we are working in the most important Work that is being carried out on this planet Earth, for every believer to be gathered, to be transformed and then to go to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.
When we are transformed and the dead in Christ are resurrected, there will be a very great manifestation from God, and God will shake this world as He has never done before; in other words, it will be a unique way: As He has never done before, God is going to do it at this time. And all the great manifestations of God of other ages and dispensations, will become type and figure of what God will do in this end time.
The whole world, the whole planet Earth, will be shaken with that manifestation of God in all His fullness in His Church in this Last Day.
So when we are transformed and the dead in Christ are resurrected in eternal bodies, what was seen in Jesus (which was a manifestation in all His fullness, of God), will be seen in each of God’s elect; and all under the leadership of Jesus Christ, the Angel of the Covenant, in His final manifestation.
And not only those of us who are alive will be under the leadership of Jesus Christ in Holy Spirit in this Last Day in His final manifestation, but also the saints of past ages will be under that leadership, who will be resurrected with their angel messengers. In other words, they will not be resurrected, each angel messenger with his group, and say: “Well, I have to do this and I have to do that,” no; they will be subject to the head, which is Christ in the Age of the Cornerstone and in His final manifestation; and they will join us to work in what needs to be worked.
And that is the multitude with which, notice, the Scripture says that the Son of Man will come: He will come with His holy thousands, which are His elect, His Church; in Daniel it speaks of that7 and in other places8</sup>; and also in Revelation 19, also that group are the elect of God, that mighty Army.
Now, see how there will be on this planet Earth a group of human beings that will reach perfection, they will become equal to our beloved Lord Jesus Christ, in the image and likeness of the Lord Jesus Christ.
And when we are already perfect, with the eternal body, and we are equal to our Lord Jesus Christ, the limitations will disappear there; and the Family of God will be complete, the new race that He has been creating from stage to stage, from age to age; and that for the Last Day, you see, He calls and gathers His last elect, and creates the theophanic body of each one of them; and then what remains is that He creates the physical body for the dead in Christ, and the physical body for each one of us who are alive. And us, without seeing death, we will receive the new body, we will be transformed from mortal to immortal, and then that work of creation of the new race that comes through Jesus Christ the second Adam will be completed.
That new race, you see, is being created, and that Work of Creation in this end time will reach its perfection in the Last Day, that is, in the seventh millennium. And for the first time in the history of the human race, there will be on this planet Earth a group of perfect sons and daughters of God, with eternal bodies. What we saw in only one, in Jesus, will be seen in this end time in millions of sons and daughters of God; this is including the saints of past ages.
So you see THE WORK OF THE HARVEST OF THE END OF THE WORLD, notice what the Work of the Harvest at the end of the world is for: It is for all of us to reach perfection at the Last Day, that is, in the seventh millennium (if we add to the calendar the years of delay that it has, we are already in the seventh millennium).
Now, when will the resurrection of the dead in Christ take place? We don’t know. When will our transformation take place? We don’t know; but it will happen, because it is a promise of Jesus Christ, both in the Old Testament and in the New Testament.
Now, see how this promise will be fulfilled to us in this Last Day, in this end time. When will it be? In which year? We don’t know, but in one of the years, which we have to go through, that promise will be fulfilled in all its fullness; because it is already in the process of fulfillment; but the culminating part of that promise, which will be our transformation with the resurrection of the dead in Christ, will occur in one of the years through which we have to go.
In every year that we have been living in the present, we have been waiting for our transformation, because it is a promise for us.
And God can’t fulfill a promise for someone who is not waiting for it. If a person says: “No, I believe that this promise of transformation is going to be for other people who will come in another generation,” that person can’t receive the transformation, because he doesn’t believe it; and if he doesn’t believe it, how is God going to fulfill a promise that a person doesn’t believe?
That is why the elect of the Last Day would be believing that promise, and thus they would be receiving (what?) the revelation to be transformed and raptured, they would be receiving the revelation of the Seventh Seal; and with that revelation of the Seventh Seal, of the Second Coming of Christ, we would thus obtain the faith, the revelation, to be transformed and raptured.
You see, throughout the ages it was preached that there a resurrection of the dead in Christ and a transformation of those who live is coming, but that promise was not fulfilled in none of the past ages. And the mystery is that for that transformation of those who live and that resurrection of the dead, the revelation, the faith of the Second Coming of Christ, had to be in effect here on Earth.
The elect of God had to obtain the revelation of the Second Coming of Christ; and thus obtain the Divine Program, the knowledge of the Divine Program relevant to the Second Coming of Christ; and believe it with all their soul to obtain the benefits 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 thus the rights that the elect of God have (those rights) be fulfilled, those rights be fulfilled from behalf of God; and thus obtain the transformation of their bodies, those of us who are alive, the transformation of our bodies, and the dead in Christ receive the resurrection in eternal bodies.
Look at how simple everything is in the Divine Program. It speaks of the Last Trumpet or Great Voice of Trumpet, and it speaks of the resurrection of the dead in Christ and the transformation of us who are alive. And look, in “Broken Cisterns,” page 35, what Reverend William Branham says is the Last Trumpet or Great Voice of Trumpet or Seventh Trumpet, and what the Seventh Seal is; he says:9
“…for the Trump of God, that last Trumpet…’ The sixth one has just sounded. And that last Trumpet, like the last Seal, will be the Coming of the Lord. ‘It shall sound, and the dead in Christ shall rise first.’ Just resting till that time.”
Now notice what will be the Last Trumpet or Seventh Trumpet, of Revelation, chapter 11, verse 15 and on; and of First Corinthians, chapter 15, verses 50 to 55; and of First Thessalonians, chapter 4, verses 13 to 17.
That Last Trumpet or final Trumpet or Seventh Trumpet, like the Seventh Seal, for it is the same thing: It is the Coming of the Lord. And that Seventh Trumpet will “sound,” that is, it will sound the Second Coming of Christ, the Message of the Second Coming of Christ, which is the Message of the Gospel of the Kingdom making known the mystery of the Second Coming of Christ and His Reclaiming Work.
With the preaching of the Gospel of the Kingdom revealing the mystery of the Second Coming of Christ, what is sounding? The Seventh Trumpet of Revelation, chapter 11, verse 15 and on; what is sounding? The Last Trumpet, the Trumpet of the Year of Jubilee, the Trumpet of the Message of the Gospel of the Kingdom, to call and gather all the elect, and then for the resurrection of the dead in Christ and the transformation of us who are alive to come.
That is the Work that does that Last Trumpet or Great Voice of Trumpet in this Last Day, in “THE WORK OF THE HARVEST AT THE END OF THE WORLD.”
It has been a great privilege for me to be with you, workers of this end time, and collaborators here in Puerto Rico; and also with you there in Venezuela via telephone line.
May God bless you greatly and use you greatly in His Work, in THE WORK OF THE HARVEST AT THE END OF THE WORLD in which we live, and may all the elect of God, who have their names written in the Lamb’s Book of Life since before the foundation of the world, be called and gathered.
Continue working and searching until we get all the elect, until every last one of the elect is reached; and then the Mystical Body of Christ will be completed in the Age of the Cornerstone; and then the dead in Christ will resurrect first, and us who are alive will be transformed.
We are in the most glorious time of all times, in the time that the seven angel messengers and the prophets of the Old Testament desired to live. We are in the most glorious time of all: The time of the Age of the Cornerstone at the end of the world. And we have been allotted that privilege; and to be within the Age of the Cornerstone, and in the territory where the Age of the Cornerstone is being fulfilled.
May God greatly bless all of you present, and those who are via telephone line in Venezuela; and use you greatly in His Work in this Last Day.
And for those who are there on the telephone line, for you, just as Julio (our brother Julio) reminded you of that eclipse that will occur shortly… You see, when our brother Branham spoke in 1964, in the message “Recognizing your day and its Message” (this is something additional here that I want to tell you), it says as follows… it says on page 5 and 6 and 7, it tells us about this, in this message “Recognizing your day and its Message,” it says:10
“…And as we preached the Seven Church Ages, and they were so perfectly until the Holy Spirit Himself come down among us and vindicated it (that is, He confirmed it), and put it upon the papers, and throwed it across the nation, and showed it in the moon in the heavens, and proved it to us, weeks and months before it happened, that just the way it would be, perfectly. Here in the tabernacle He made it known. Here on the…in the time, He made it known. On the moon and the sun, He made it known. And in the position of the nations at this time, He made it known; as the hierarchy of Rome left and went back to Palestine (that is, Israel), supposedly had been the first pope back since (they claim) Peter being the pope. Now, it was so tremendous!
Then, we see, before the Seven Seals that hid all the mysteries.
Me not knowing what I was drawing on the board, for the Church Ages. I never. God knows. Just by vision,11 I drawed it. Not knowing that God, a year and six months later, was going to vindicate it in the skies, by the moon, and slip it across the national papers. I didn’t know that. I didn’t know there would be a mysterious blackout in the moon, to represent this Laodicea Age.
Now, on the papers, you only get the six ages. Is because the Laodicea church was blacked out completely. And if you would notice the spiritual application, as God set it in the heaven. When I set it here on earth, I left a little bitty space, as you see, just a teeny little bit of light. That was just before the very Elected was to be called from the earth, the reason I placed it on there for the seventh age. But when God put it in the heavens, it was totally blacked out, means maybe the last one is called from that Laodicea Age.”
But what of our age? It seems that the calling of our age had not yet began; but of the Age of Laodicea, he says:
“… means maybe the last one is called from that Laodicea Age. We don’t know. There could be a sermon on it.”
Now, let’s leave this alone here, because these12 are the six pictures that were taken of the moon at that time; and the last one came out dark, which is not placed there.
Then he also speaks about the cloud, of the angels that appeared in heaven; and he also here, and in other messages, says that there in that cloud of angels is represented the Bride of the Lord; and there it is complete, because there are the seven angel messengers of the seven ages and another Angel that was very different from the rest.
And here on Earth the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ is completed with our age; because there can’t be a perfect pyramid if it doesn’t have the Cornerstone, and there can’t be a perfect Temple if it doesn’t have the Cornerstone of that Temple, which is the Most Holy Place, where God dwells.
Well, this was a little something here, as we would say “the dessert.” But remember that in these days we are going to have an eclipse that will be seen in the Caribbean and part of Latin America also; and part of the United States: The Southern part, perhaps, of the United States, and perhaps the Western part of the United States.
Now, maybe at some point I will tell you something about that eclipse; but remember that always in the sky things happen that later we see them materialized here on Earth; things that are in process to be fulfilled.
In these days, as we have seen, and as our brother Julio was talking to you, again we find that the pope has made a visit, but now not to the land of Israel in these days, but to the Caribbean island of Cuba; and now will come, you see, a sign in the sky. So let’s leave that alone for now; but in some message we will see in detail what these things, which will be seen in heaven, will be representing. So let’s leave that alone for now.
The sun, remember, even if it goes through some eclipse, then it comes out again and continues to shine. So we are going to see more about these things later on.
May God continue to bless you, may God keep you. And onward working on THE WORK OF THE HARVEST AT THE END OF THE WORLD, in which we are living.
Thank you very much for your kind attention, and may God continue to bless you all.
With us again Miguel Bermudez Marin, to say here (for those of you present here and for those of you in Venezuela) the last words of this special part that we have had with you, those of you who are there in Venezuela, which you have shared with us and we with you, in this fellowship of “THE WORK OF THE HARVEST AT THE END OF THE WORLD.”
May God bless you and keep you all; and go ahead, Miguel.
