Good afternoon, mighty young people of the Son of David. It is a great privilege for me to be with you on this occasion, and to see that here there are mighty young people of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, and there are also children, and there are also mighty adults and elders, who work in the Work of Christ.
For this occasion, I want to read in First Corinthians, chapter 3, verse 12 and on… Let’s see a little before that: Chapter 3, from verse 5 and on (so that we have a clear picture), it says, of First Corinthians:
“Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man?
I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.
So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.
Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.
For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.
According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;
Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.
If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.
If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.
For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.
Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are your’s;
Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are your’s;
And ye are Christ’s; and Christ is God’s.”
“WORKING IN THE MISSIONARY WORK WITH A POSITIVE MIND.” That is what Saint Paul taught us here in this passage.
It is very important to know that we are working in the Work of God, in the construction of the House of God, which is the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, just as in the time of Moses they worked in the construction of the house of God, of the tabernacle that God showed Moses to build; and they had to work according to the model that God showed to the prophet Moses. And that house was built for God, and it was accepted by God, for it was built according to the design that God showed the prophet Moses; and they worked the correct way.
Then, when Solomon built the temple for God, they worked in the right way. And it says that there was no sound of hammering there.1 They did everything correctly and they set everything up correctly.
And then, the Scripture teaches us that the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ is the Temple of God. Now it is no longer the temple or tabernacle that Moses built, neither is it the temple that Solomon built, those temples no longer exist; but Jesus Christ is building a Temple, a House, for our God; and that is the House of God in which we are working.
Saint Paul says in chapter 3, verses 5 to 6, of his letter to the Hebrews:
“And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after;
But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.”
Here Christ shows us that House through Saint Paul, which is us, as the Mystical Body of Jesus Christ.
Also in his letter to the Ephesians, the apostle Saint Paul tells us, in chapter 2, verse 19 to 22:
“Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.”
Now see this construction of this House to which we belong, as living stones that have been placed in the construction of that House, of that Church of Jesus Christ; which was represented, was reflected, in the tabernacle that Moses built and in the temple that Solomon built, because those temples represent the Temple of God that is in Heaven; and the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ is the representation of the Temple of God that is in Heaven, here on Earth She is the representation of that Temple that is in Heaven.
And that is why, just as the temple that Moses built and the temple that Solomon built represented the Temple that is in Heaven, now the Church of Jesus Christ is the representation of the Temple that is in Heaven. That is the Temple of God here on Earth representing the Temple that is in Heaven; that is why that Temple is built according to the model of the Temple that is in Heaven, and that is why it contains the same things that Solomon’s temple and the tabernacle that Moses built had.
For example, we have the candlestick or candelabrum, which has seven lamps, and represents the seven stages or ages of the gentile Church with their lit wicks, which are the angel messengers lighted in the fire of the Spirit of God; and that corresponds for the Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Christ. And that is why those seven angel messengers and those seven ages were already fulfilled in the seven stages of the gentile Church; and those seven stages correspond to the Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Christ.
And now, see how God materialized in that Temple, Jesus Christ materialized in that Temple, in the Holy Place of that Temple, the things of the Holy Place of the Temple which is in Heaven; and of the tabernacle that Moses had built and of the tabernacle that King Solomon had built.
And for this end time Jesus Christ materializes what is in the Most Holy Place of the Temple which is in Heaven in human beings. That is why in the end time, when the time corresponds to the stage of the Most Holy Place of the Temple which is in Heaven, that stage being fulfilled, materializing in the Church of Jesus Christ: All of the things that are in the Most Holy Place, there in the Temple of God, are the things that Jesus Christ materializes in His Church, in the Age of the Cornerstone.
That is why He takes, from the right hand of Him who sits on the Throne, the Book of the Seven Seals, and then brings it to Earth and delivers it to a man —that is the Angel Messenger of Jesus Christ, represented in the apostle Saint John—, what for? For that Book to be placed (where?) in the Most Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Christ.
It comes from the Most Holy Place of the Temple which is in Heaven, to be placed in the Most Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Jesus Christ, which is here on this Earth; and all the things that are in the Most Holy Place there, are materialized here in the Church of Jesus Christ, in the Age of the Cornerstone.
That is why, notice, the two cherubim that are over the ark of the covenant and over the mercy seat (where the glory of God was in the midst of those cherubim, over the mercy seat), we find that they are materialized here in the Age of the Cornerstone, which is the Age of the Throne and the Age of the Most Holy Place; and it is the age where the glory of God in all His fullness will be manifested. First He begins by building that place, and then He will manifest Himself in all His fullness in the Most Holy Place of that spiritual Temple, that is, of the Church of Jesus Christ.
That is why King Solomon also placed two olive trees, or two cherubim of giant olive trees, and covered them with gold; which is a type and figure of the ministries of the Two Olive Trees: of Moses and Elijah; and gold represents the Divinity, that is, the manifestation of God in those two ministries of the Two Olive Trees.
All that was (where?) in the Most Holy Place; and that is why during the seven ages of the gentile Church neither of the Two Olive Trees could be manifested on Earth, because the ministries of the Two Olive Trees —which is the ministry of Moses for the second time and the ministry of Elijah for the fifth time— couldn’t be manifested in any of the seven ages of the gentile Church (which corresponds to the Holy Place), because it is for the Most Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ.
Now, we can also see that the ministry of Jesus for the second time is to be manifested in the Most Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Christ as the manifestation of God of the Last Day in His Church, where He will be working and building that Most Holy Place, in order to manifest Himself there upon the Ark of the Covenant in all His fullness, and to carry out the adoption of all the children of God; and thus, to all be in the image and likeness of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ.
Now we can see the work that Christ is doing in the construction of His spiritual Temple.
And now we are collaborators of Jesus Christ in His Work; and that is why we are working in the missionary work, where we take the Message everywhere and we gather the living stones, which are the sons and daughters of God, and we bring them to the House of God, to the Church of Jesus Christ, to the Mystical Body of Christ; they are placed there as part of that spiritual Temple, in the Most Holy Place of the spiritual Temple.
In other words, the living stones that make up the spiritual Temple of Christ in this end time, correspond to the Most Holy Place; just as the living stones of the first age correspond to the time of Saint Paul, and they were in Asia Minor.
See how in different territories God has had those living stones that He would take for the construction of His Temple.
And now, the living stones… Saint Peter speaks of living stones. Just as he says that Jesus Christ is the Cornerstone, now he also says that we are living stones for the construction of the Temple of God, to be placed there, in the House of God.
See, in First Peter, chapter 2, verse 4 and on, it says:
“To whom coming (that is, to Christ), as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,
Ye also, as lively stones, are…”
You see, just as Christ is the living Stone that the builders rejected (that is, the priests, the ministers of that time, the Sanhedrin Council with the High Priest), now Christ, being the living Stone, the Stone that the builders rejected, now His children, Saint Peter says here, says that they are living stones. He says:
“…Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.
Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,
And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;
Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.”
Now, see that this people, which is the Church of Jesus Christ that has attained mercy, are, the members of that Church, living stones; and they are placed in the House of God, in the Temple of Jesus Christ, which is His Church, in the construction of that Temple.
And we, working in the missionary work, are working in the construction of that spiritual Temple; and “your work in the Lord is not in vain”:2 you will receive the righteous reward from the Lord:
“And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.” (Revelation, chapter 22, verse 12).
And Matthew, chapter 16, verse 27, says that the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His Angels, and then He will pay each one according to his work.
Now, Jesus Christ tells us: “Labor not for the meat which perisheth, but (for something else) for that which endureth unto eternal life.” John, chapter 6, verse 27. Let’s see what He says there so that we have a clear picture; verses 26 to 27, it says:
“Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled.
Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.
Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?
Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.”
Now, see how important it is to work, not for food, but for what endures to eternal life. It is very important to work in the missionary work, knowing that we are working in the construction of the spiritual Temple of Christ, the Church of Jesus Christ; and we are working in stage number eight, the eternal stage, the Age of the Cornerstone.
We are not working in the first age, nor the second, nor the third, nor the third, nor the fourth, nor the fifth, nor the sixth, nor the seventh, but in the Age of the Cornerstone. And we are with Jesus Christ…
When they went to look for Him when He was 12 years old, who was in the temple talking with the priests and the scribes there, and asking them questions, and answering questions to them also; and Mary says to Him: “What have you done? Your father and I have been looking for you, why have you done this to us?”3 For He had remained there in the temple, there in Jerusalem. Jesus said to her: “Did you not know that I ought to be about my Father’s business?”
And where is it good for us to be working? Well, in the business of our heavenly Father, in the business of Jesus Christ, in the Age of the Cornerstone and Dispensation of the Kingdom, in the construction of that spiritual Temple.
And that is why we work in the missionary work and carry out all the relevant work, so that the Message may reach all the people who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life since before the foundation of the world; and may they be called and gathered and placed as living stones in the House of God, the Church of Jesus Christ, the Temple of God; because soon that Temple will be dedicated to God, for the dwelling of God in the Holy Spirit in all His fullness; where we who are alive will be transformed; and those who died: In their physical bodies will be resurrected, in eternal bodies, and will be with us again, where? In the House of God, in the Church of Jesus Christ, they will be with us in the Age of the Cornerstone in this end time.
So we can see how important it is to be working in the Work of Christ, in the House of Christ, in that House that He is building, which is the New Temple, for the dwelling of God in all His fullness.
That manifestation of the Third Pull, where great things will happen and the whole world will see them, will be done (where?) in the House of God, the Church of Jesus Christ: when all the elect of God are completed in the Mystical Body of Christ, when the Church of Jesus Christ is already complete, and the dead in Christ are resurrected and we who are alive are transformed.
Now, you see how important it is to be working, but in the House of God, in the age in which one is living; because “unless the Lord builds His House, the builders labor in vain”4; and He is (where?) in His House, in the stage that corresponds to the time in which one lives.
If a person says: “No, to me… This looks better in the Church of Jesus Christ in this other way.” Well, he is edifying; but he is not edifying according to the model established by God; it is his own work. But God is not working through that person; therefore, it is not Jesus Christ who is working, building His House.
He edifies His House through His instruments, who work according to the model that God has shown for the construction of that House.
Now, we can see that we are working in the edification of the House of God, which God Himself, Jesus Christ, is building. And we are His collaborators, we are laborers in the construction of that House; and therefore, He guides us in all the work and uses us in all the work, and He will pay us according to the work that we have done in His House.
He, you see, in the Work, in His Work, He also showed in the form of a vineyard, where He sent people to work, some at one hour, others at another hour, and so on; until about the eleventh hour He sent for more laborers, who came and worked. And when God had paid them all, he began to pay beginning with whom? The last ones; and… Let’s see, that is around Matthew, chapter 20: “When the hour came…” Chapter 20, verse 6 and on, it says:
“And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle?
They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, that shall ye receive.
So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first.
And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny.
But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man a penny.
And when they had received it, they murmured against the goodman of the house,
Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day.
But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny?
Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee.
Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good?
So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.”
See how the last ones have a great blessing. And the last ones are those who live in the end time, the ones who work in the House of God in the Work of the Last Day, of the last hour; and they will receive the same salary of what they received – of what those of the first hour and other hours will receive.
Now, see that there are great blessings for all of us in this end time; there are great blessings for all the sons and daughters of God who work in the Work of God. And we have been allotted the best part of the Work of God, which is the finishing part. And a worker of completion is a worker that has more value, his work is of completion, it is of more value.
And notice, for this end time, in the Work of Christ, the work is the work of the Age of the Cornerstone, the work of the Most Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Christ; and the Most Holy Place is the most important part of the Temple of God.
And so it is also in the Church of Jesus Christ: The Age of the Cornerstone, which is the Age of the Most Holy Place, it is the most important part of the Church, where Jesus Christ will dwell in all His fullness in this Last Day. That is why He prepares it well, that part of His spiritual Temple, and in that part is where He works in this Last Day; and He is the one who builds His House, and we are His collaborators.
So see where we are working in the Work of Christ, in His Church, His spiritual Temple; therefore, let us work in the missionary work with divine love.
We are working in the missionary work so that the stones that have to be placed in the Most Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Christ, are brought and placed in that Most Holy Place, in the most important part of the spiritual Temple of Christ.
Just as there were living stones in Asia Minor, for that part of the Temple; and so in different nations, in each one of the stages of the Church, for the Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Christ; now there are living stones for the Most Holy Place (where?) in Latin America and the Caribbean, living stones for the Temple of Jesus Christ in the construction of the Most Holy Place in this end time, for that construction to soon be finished and that Temple be dedicated to our beloved Lord Jesus Christ, to our God, for God to dwell in all His fullness in Holy Spirit in His spiritual Temple.
And the temple of Moses is no longer needed, nor the temple of Solomon; they are gone, they no longer exist, but they are not needed either; because the Son of David, Jesus Christ, has already been building a New Temple; and He has it almost finished. There are only some details and some little stones to be placed in the Most Holy Place, and some details inside the Most Holy Place, to say: “The work that You gave me to do, I have already done it and it is finished; and I dedicate it to You.”
And Jesus Christ dedicating that Work: God will receive it, for God to dwell in all His fullness in His Church in this Last Day and for all eternity; and He will resurrect the dead in Christ, and He will transform us who are alive, and thus that spiritual Temple will be dedicated to God, for the Millennium and for all eternity.
It has been a great privilege for me to be with you, mighty young people of the Son of David, giving testimony of the work that we are carrying out in this end time in the Work of Jesus Christ, where we are WORKING IN THE MISSIONARY WORK WITH A POSITIVE MIND.
We know in which Work we are working, we are aware of all that Divine Program; therefore, our mind is a positive mind.
We know that Christ is there in that work: He is the Chief, He is the Director, and we are collaborators with Him. And us working with a positive mind, like Him also, working with a positive mind to finish that construction; but to finish it well, in such a way that it will please our heavenly Father and will dwell in all His fullness in Holy Spirit in that spiritual Temple, which is His Church.
It has been a great blessing for me to be with you giving testimony of the way we are working in the missionary work in the House of God in this Last Day: We are working with a positive mind, aware of what we are doing.
So God bless you, God keep you, young people, and use you greatly in His Work, and also the adults who are here present, and the children also and the elders also.
God bless you and keep you, and I leave again young Jose Benjamin Perez to continue this afternoon.
We are on this Earth walking, but we are walking with Christ in the Work of the Last Day, working in that Work of construction of the spiritual Temple of Christ. We are working in the missionary work and we are walking with Him in the missionary work, in the construction of His spiritual Temple. Therefore, “I walk with Christ” but working in His Work. For in our Father’s business it is convenient for us to be.
And we are walking with Him, working in His Work; working in the missionary work, in all the Work of the construction of His spiritual Temple, which is His Church; the construction of His Church, where God will dwell in all His fullness in this Last Day.
May God bless you and keep you; and with us Benjie to continue.
