Good evening, beloved friends and brethren present, radio listeners and also those who are hearing through the internet, and those present; and also the authorities of the city of Lakeland, the mayor of the city: Mr. Fletcher, and all the people of this city.

May Christ bless you with His Word and allow you to comprehend His Word on this occasion, and may He speak directly to our soul and allow us to see His Program relevant to this end time. In the Eternal Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen and amen.

For this occasion we have the subject: THE SEVENTH SEAL AND THE AMERICAN NATION”; and we will include Central America, South America and the Caribbean, because the American nation or continent is composed of North America, Central America, South America and the Caribbean.

I want to read in the book of Revelation, chapter 5, verse 1 to 6 (and then in chapter 8, verse 1), where it says:

And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.

And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?

And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.

And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.

And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.

And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.”

And in Revelation, chapter 8, verse 1, says:

And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.”

May God bless our souls with His Word and allow us to understand It.

In order to comprehend this mystery of the Seventh Seal, we need to comprehend that the Almighty God, Creator of the Heavens and of the Earth, is the one who in Heaven has this Book sealed with seven seals, which is the Title Deed of the entire Creation; this is the Book where the names of the elect are, written since before the foundation of the world, this is the Book of Redemption.

When the time arrived for that Book to be opened, there was no one worthy of taking that Book; and John wept a lot, for if no one was found worthy of taking that Book and opening those Seals, the entire Creation was lost, because when the time arrives for something in the Divine Program, what pertains to that time must be carried out.

Now, where was our beloved Lord Jesus Christ? He was in the Throne of Intercession in Heaven, making intercession for the last elect of God when that takes place, in other words, when the call is made for someone to present himself and take that Book from the right hand of the One sitting on the Throne.

And our beloved Lord Jesus Christ cannot leave the Throne of Intercession in Heaven, that is, the seat of mercy, until the very last elect of God enters and He makes intercession for the last elect of God, whose name is written in Heaven, in the Lamb’s Book of Life, since before the foundation of the world; and Christ cannot leave the Throne of Intercession until He intercedes for the very last elect and the Mystical Body of the Lord Jesus Christ is complete.

If He leaves before appointed time, that is, if He leaves before interceding for the last elect, the Church of Jesus Christ remains incomplete; and the Church of Jesus Christ if incomplete, cannot obtain the resurrection of the dead in Christ and the transformation of we who are alive, because it would be an incomplete Mystical Body of believers, and that Mystical Body of believers would be imperfect if it is incomplete.

And since that Mystical Body of believers is the spiritual Temple of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ, it would be an imperfect temple, an unfinished temple; because the spiritual Temple of Jesus Christ, which is His Church, is composed, is created by Christ calling and gathering together His elect in each age or stage of His gentile Church; which began in the land of Israel, then it continued in Asia Minor, then moved on to Europe, it continued in Europe and then it continues in North America; and His Program of Creation of that new race continues (which are the members of the Mystical Body of Christ), continues in Latin America and the Caribbean.

From those different territories where God has been carrying out His Work, that Divine Program of each stage, of each age, has extended from there, to the rest of the nations; but, notice, God has always had a territory from where God has been manifested; and He has had a messenger through whom God has been manifested, as He did in the Old Testament.

“Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but He revealeth His secret unto His servants the prophets,” says Amos, chapter 3, verse 7, and so it has always been.

And now, for the end time, all the elect of God who live in this end time are called and gathered together. And how will the elect of God of this end time be called and gathered together? Jesus Christ Himself told us how the elect of God would be called and gathered together: in Matthew, chapter 24, verse 31, Christ says:

And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.”

Here Christ shows the way in which the elect of God will be called and gathered together. This is for this end time, where the Son of Man will send His Angels with a Great Voice of Trumpet and shall gather His elect.

Now, what is the Great Voice of Trumpet? It is the Great Voice of Trumpet of the Gospel of the Kingdom being proclaimed in the end time, in the Last Day, for all the elect of God to called and gathered together with that Message.

We find that a trumpet always symbolizes the Voice of Christ in the New Testament. Notice, in Revelation, chapter 1, verse 10 to 11, we find that Great Voice of Trumpet in the Day of the Lord; so says John the apostle:

I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day (in other words, he was transported to the Day of the Lord), and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,

Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last.”

And who is the Alpha and Omega? Who is the first and the last? Our beloved Savior Jesus Christ. It is the Voice of Jesus Christ at the Last Day speaking to us with the Great Voice of Trumpet.

And now, let us see what Christ promises to speak to His Church at this end time. In chapter 4, verse 1, John also hears the Voice of Christ as a voice of trumpet, and says:

After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me (here we have that he heard a voice how?, as a trumpet; it is not a literal trumpet, but rather a voice like a trumpet); which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.”

Here Christ, for the end time or Last Day, He will make known to His Church, to His children, the things that must happen after the ones that have happened these two thousand years, approximately, that have passed from Christ until now.

Now, the things that will happen at this end time, He promises to make them known to His Church, to His children, and for that, we are required to go up to where He will be speaking at this end time. He says: “Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.” The Voice of Christ will be making known the things that will happen after the ones that have already happened in past ages.

Now, where will we go up to? Well, when we ascend to hear these things, the resurrection of the dead in Christ has not yet taken place and the transformation of we which are alive has not taken place either.

In order to comprehend where we will go up to, me need to read the diagram  of the Church of Jesus Christ going through its different stages, in order to comprehend the stage that we have been granted to live at this end time.

This is a diagram that was used by the Reverend William Branham when he preached the message “The stature of a perfect man,” where he showed the different stages or ages of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ among the gentiles.

The first one pertains to that time in which Saint Paul was ministering the Word of God in Asia Minor. The first age was fulfilled in Asia Minor among the gentiles, and its messenger was Saint Paul; and that first age was represented in the Ephesian Church, because the seven churches of Asia Minor (which actually existed) are type and figure of the different stages of the Church of Jesus Christ through which she would go through among the gentiles.

And now the second stage through which the Church of Jesus Christ went through among the gentiles was represented in the Smyrnaean Church there in Asia Minor; and that second stage was fulfilled in France, and its messenger was Irenaeus.

Then the third stage of the Church of Jesus Christ was represented in the Pergamean Church there in Asia Minor; and that third stage of the Church of Jesus Christ was fulfilled in France and Hungary (also there in Europe), and its messenger was Martin.

Then the fourth stage was represented in the Thyatirean Church there in Asia Minor; and that fourth stage was fulfilled in Ireland and Scotland, and its messenger was Columba.

Then the fifth stage, represented in the Sardisean Church there in Asia Minor, was fulfilled in Germany, and its messenger was Martin Luther.

Then the sixth stage or age of the gentile Church - of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ among the gentiles, was represented in the Philadelphian Church there in Asia Minor; and that sixth stage of the Church of Jesus Christ among the gentiles was fulfilled in England, and its messenger was John Wesley.

Remember that every time an age is fulfilled in a certain territory and from there the Word of God extends to other territories, to other nations; and God places that messenger in that territory where that age is fulfilled, and with that messenger the Message of God relevant to that time is extended.

Then the seventh stage of the Church of Jesus Christ was represented in the Laodicean Church of Asia Minor, and it was fulfilled in North America; and its messenger was the Reverend William Branham, who was the forerunner of the Second Coming of Christ and came with the spirit and virtue of Elijah forerunner the Second Coming of Christ; and he left in 1965, Reverend William Branham passed away on December 24, 1965.

And now, those seven stages or ages of the gentile Church, since the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ is also a spiritual Temple, is the spiritual Temple of Jesus Christ… Notice, the tabernacle that Moses and built and the temple that Solomon built, had an outer court, holy place and most holy place.

From Christ and back, it pertains to the Outer Court; from Jesus Christ until the Reverend William Branham, it pertains to the Holy Place.

Where were the lamps on the candlestick or candelabra? Well in the holy place. And that candelabra with the seven lit lamps, represent what? It represents the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. It says in Revelation, chapter 1, verse 19 and on:

Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;

The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.”

Now notice, the seven Churches or ages of the gentile Church represented in the seven churches of Asia Minor, pertain to the Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Jesus Christ. And notice how it comes in order, that entire Divine Program has a sequence: first, it began with Christ and His ministry in the land of Israel, then it moved on to among the gentiles in Asia Minor, and from there it moved further on to Europe, France, and from France the third age was covered in Hungary, and then it moved on to Ireland and Scotland, and then it moved on to Germany, and then it moved on to England, and then it moved on to North America.

All of that pertains, notice, these seven stages pertain to that Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Jesus Christ, which is being built with what? With human beings, because it is a spiritual Temple, which Christ is building with human beings, with living stones, just as Christ is the living Stone that the builders rejected, the Headstone, the Stone not cut by hands.

And now, we have reached the end of time or the end time, and where will God be carrying out His Work relevant to the Last Day? It is very important to understand that in order to comprehend the Divine Program relevant to the Last Day.

If we were living in the first stage or age of the gentile Church in the time of Saint Paul, we would have to go up to the first age of the gentile Church to hear the Voice of Christ through Saint Paul.

Saint Paul said1: “Nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me.” Christ was speaking through Saint Paul, because Christ was manifested in Holy Spirit in Saint Paul, in that great ministerial gift that He placed in the midst of His Church among the gentiles.

Remember that these ministries of the messengers of God are greater ministerial gifts that He has placed in His Church; and that is why these seven great ministries placed in His Church to be manifested in the Holy Place of His spiritual Temple, pertain to the manifestation of the Spirit of God, which is represented in those seven spirits of God that travel all the Earth; it is the manifestation of the Holy Spirit in those seven angel messengers, which are the seven spirits of God traveling the entire Earth and who are the seven candlesticks that stand before God.

Now, notice, the people who lived in each one of these stages had to go up to that stage, that age, to hear the Voice of Christ through the messenger God sent for that age. “Because surely the Lord God will do nothing, but He revealeth His secrets unto His servants the prophets.”

And notice how He has been speaking through these messengers; and we can see why they were successful in their ministries, even though the circumstances that surrounded them were against them most of the time; now, the success came from God.

And now, where are we going to go up to so that we can hear the Voice of Christ after the seventh angel messenger of the seventh age of the gentile Church…, which was fulfilled in North America and its messenger was Reverend William Branham and who has left? Now, where are we going up to so that we can hear the Voice of Christ, and through whom will we hear the Voice of Christ? Through whom will our beloved Lord Jesus Christ be speaking at the Last Day, and making known to us all these things which must shortly come to pass?

We must go up to the Age of the Cornerstone, to that heavenly stage that represents eternity, because eight represents eternity and it also represents infinity.

That is why in cameras, in many cameras, you will find that when you turn it to the number eight, that refers to the infinity, and you can take pictures at any distance, from a long distance.

And now, in the Age of the Cornerstone, the Voice of Christ will be speaking with that Great Voice of Trumpet and making known to us all these things which must shortly come to pass, at the end time.

And now, which territory does the Age of the Cornerstone pertain to, which territory does the Work of Christ of the Last Day pertain to? It pertains to Latin America and the Caribbean.

He has been building His spiritual Temple, we have seen the construction of His spiritual Temple out of living stones, from age to age, during the construction of the Holy Place; but a temple is not complete if it does not have a most holy place. We have seen the construction of the Temple, the part of the Holy Place, during the seven ages, but now we need to see the construction of the Most Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Jesus Christ.

Now, which direction was the most holy place facing in the tabernacle that Moses built? Towards the West, in other words, facing West. Which direction was the most holy place facing in the temple that Moses built? The West, that is, facing West. And which direction is the Most Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Jesus Christ facing? The West, which is the American Continent.

And now, it is in the American Continent where the Age of the Cornerstone will be manifested and Christ will be speaking to us all these things which must shortly come to pass at this end time, and that is how Christ will be building the Most Holy Place of His spiritual Temple out of living stones, out of human beings; and from there, the Message of God will spread to all the other nations, and it will reach the Hebrew people, who are waiting for the Message of God, the Voice of God speaking and revealing to them all these mysteries of the Kingdom of God.

And now, we have seen the territory where Christ will be manifested, speaking to His people all these things which must shortly come to pass. He said: “Come up hither,” now we have seen where we must go up: “Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.”

And now, through whom will Christ be speaking to us all these things which must shortly come to pass? Because if He is going to speak to us, He must have a person through whom He will speak these things to us, so that we may understand them.

In Revelation, chapter 22, verse 6 and on, it tells us through whom all of this which must shortly come to pass at this end time will be made known; because through the one in whom He will be manifested speaking, He will be making known to us all these things which must shortly be done, at this end time.

Revelation, chapter 22, verse 6 and on, says:

And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.”

Who has He sent? His Angel Messenger. For what? To show unto His servants the things which must shortly be done. Revelation, chapter 22, verse 6, and the passage continues:

Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.

And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things.

Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.”

Now notice, this Angel Messenger who revealed this book of Revelation to John is not the Lord Jesus Christ, although Jesus Christ is manifested in him, speaking to us all these things which must shortly be done, because this is the Angel who comes with the revelation of Jesus Christ.

Revelation, chapter 1, verse 1 to 3, shows us that this is the Angel who comes with the revelation of Jesus Christ, although he is not Jesus Christ. Revelation, chapter 1, verse 1 to 3, says:

The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John...”

Now, notice that the revelation of Jesus Christ given to John the apostle was the revelation of Jesus Christ sent through His Angel Messenger. Who is the one that brings that revelation of Jesus Christ? The Angel Messenger of the Lord Jesus Christ, to declare what things? It says:

...Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw (now, notice that this revelation contains the things which must shortly be done).

Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.”

Blessed are those who hear, those who read and hear the words of this prophecy that the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ brings, for the time is at hand.

Now, why is it so important to hear - to read and to hear the words of the prophecy of this Book that the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ brings? Because it is the Voice of Jesus Christ, the Word of Jesus Christ making known to us all these things which must shortly come to pass; and he who takes away from it or adds to it…, whoever takes away from it: his name will be taken out of the Book of Life, and whoever adds unto it: plagues will be added unto him, according to the prophecy. Revelation, chapter 22, verse 19, says:

And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.”

Now, also notice Revelation, chapter 22, verse 16, where it says:

I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches.”

Who has Jesus Christ sent to all the churches to testify these things which must shortly come to pass? His Angel Messenger. And the question is: Who is this Angel Messenger?

This Angel Messenger is a prophet, he is the last prophet who Jesus Christ sends to Earth, he is the prophet of the Dispensation of the Kingdom with the Message of the Gospel of the Kingdom, testifying all these things which must shortly come to pass.

This Angel Messenger is the one sent by Christ at the Last Day, who revealed this book of Revelation to John in this symbolic manner. In the time of John the Baptist, this Angel Messenger - and in the time of John the apostle, this Angel Messenger was not on this planet Earth in human flesh yet; but the Scripture tells us that God is the God of the spirits of the prophets. And John the apostle saw, heard and knew this Angel Messenger of the Lord Jesus Christ, and tried to worship him, but he said to him2: “See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren. Worship God.”

Now, this Angel Messenger is the one sent by Jesus Christ, so that through this prophet messenger, Christ may speak to His people, to His Church and make known to her all these things which must shortly come to pass, all these things which must happen after what has already happened in the past ages. “Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.”

And now, no one will be able to understand the things that must happen at the Last Day, in the stage or Age of the Cornerstone of the Mystical Body of Christ, which pertains to the Most Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Christ, except those who hear the Voice of Christ through that Angel Messenger, that prophet messenger of the Lord Jesus Christ, which is the prophet of the Dispensation of the Kingdom with the Message of the Gospel of the Kingdom.

The Message of the Gospel of the Kingdom 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. With that Message, the Earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea, like the prophet Habakkuk says in chapter 2, verse 14, and Isaiah, chapter 11, verse 9:

For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.”

And now, notice what is needed for every human being to be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord: what do we need? We need the revelation of Jesus Christ of the things that must happen soon, at this end time, after what has already happened in past times. And the revelation comes through the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ; and that is why we must go up to the Age of the Cornerstone: “Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.”

There is one dispensational messenger for all churches, for every nation, for every people, for every language, for every human being. It is the first time in the history of His Church that Jesus Christ sends her a dispensational prophet, it is the first time.

And now, notice, what does this Angel Messenger, which is the prophet of the Dispensation of the Kingdom, come testifying? He comes testifying the things which must shortly come to pass; because he is a prophet.

What have the prophets done throughout the entire Bible? Testify the things which must come to pass; and that is to prophesy. Every prophet of God comes prophesying during the time in which God has sent him, he comes prophesying the things which must come to pass. And this Angel Messenger of Jesus Christ comes prophesying the things which must shortly come to pass.

And we find that he made known to John the apostle (in symbols) all the things which must come to pass from the time of Saint John until this end time. Everything is in this book of Revelation, all of it enclosed in these apocalyptic symbols, which are also found in the book of the prophet Daniel; because the book of the prophet Daniel is the Revelation of the Old Testament.

And now, that is why the prophecies of the book of Daniel are consistent with the prophecies of the book of Revelation.

To get an idea, let us see the book of the prophet Daniel and we will see an example here: In chapter 7, verses 13 to 14, notice what it says:

I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.

And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.”

And in Revelation, chapter 5, it says, verse 5 to 6:

And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.

And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.”

Here we can see Christ leaving the Throne of Intercession in Heaven and coming forward to take the Book of the Seven Seals; He came forward and took that Book of the Seven Seals.

Now, the elder said: “Behold the Lion…” and when John looked, it says that he saw a Lamb. Is there a contradiction between what John saw and what the elder saw? There is no contradiction, because they both saw the same person, but one saw Him as a Lamb (John the apostle) and the elder saw Him as Lion.

Now, when John the Baptist introduced Jesus Christ, he said3: “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” And on one occasion, when John the Baptist said4: “Behold the Lamb of God!”, when John the apostle and Andrew, Peter’s brother (who were disciples of John the Baptist), when they heard John the Baptist speak that way, they followed Jesus; John the apostle knew Jesus Christ as the Lamb of God.

And now, when the elder says: “Behold the Lion of the tribe of Judah” and John looked, he saw the Lamb. Why? Because he saw Jesus, because Jesus is the Lamb of God and He is also the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, He is the King of kings and Lord of lords.

They both saw the same person; but John saw Him as a Lamb, because that is how John the apostle knew Him; and the elder introduced Him as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, because Christ takes that Title Deed when He leaves the Throne of Intercession, when He finishes His Work of Intercession in Heaven.

And now, in Revelation, chapter 10, verse 1 and on, it says:

And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:

And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,

And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.”

Notice how here, after Christ has taken this Book of the Seven Seals and opened It in Heaven, He then comes down to Earth in Revelation, chapter 10. And He comes down with that Book open in His hand: He comes down clothed with a cloud, a rainbow around His head, with His face as the sun, with His eyes as flames of fire, His feet as pillars of fire, and He cried as when a lion roars.

Notice, He cries out as when a lion roars after He has set His right foot upon the sea and His left foot on the Earth. In other words, that the Seven Thunders, which is the Voice of Christ as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, in other words, crying out as when a lion roars after He sets His right foot upon the sea and His left foot on the Earth; and when He had cried out as when a lion roars, Seven Thunders utter their voices.

It is the Voice of Christ speaking to His Church at the Last Day, it is the same Voice of Trumpet or Great Voice of Trumpet now introduced here with the Seven Thunders of Revelation, chapter 10; it is Christ speaking at the Last Day.

Then He tells John or He gives John the book of Revelation or the Book of the Seven Seals for him to eat It, because that represents that at the end time there will be a man, a prophet messenger here on Earth, who Christ will reveal Himself to, who Christ will come to and give him that Title Deed, that Book of the Seven Seals, to eat It, and then what? And then prophesy before many peoples, nations and tongues.

Notice, it continues saying in Revelation, chapter 10:

And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.

And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,

And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer.”

Now notice, this is the same Angel, the same Son of Man who prophet Daniel saw in his vision in chapter 7 and verses 13 to 14, when he said:

I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.

And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.”

And now, let us see this same passage, where it says: “but in the days of the voice of the seventh angel…” Revelation, chapter 10, verse 7 and on:

...But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.

And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.

And I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.

And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.”

Now, here we have that this Book that is at the right hand of God in Heaven, no man there in Heaven, nor on Earth, neither under the Earth, was worthy to take that Book, while that Book was at the right hand of God.

And where was Jesus Christ? Well, He was in the Most Holy Place, making intercession on the Throne of Intercession, on the seat of mercy, but then He left and took the Book.

And why was no man worthy to take that Book while it was at the right hand of God in Heaven? Because after the fall of the human being, every person had come through the union of a man and a woman; and Adam, who had not come to Earth that way, had fallen; therefore, no human being was worthy, because they had all been contaminated by sin; and the one who was worthy to take that Book was still in the Most Holy Place making intercession for the last elect of God.

But once He finished His Work in the Most Holy Place of the Temple of God in Heaven, He left and took that little Book out of the right hand of the One seated in Heaven, and He opened it; and then, in Revelation, chapter 6, verse 1 and on, we find that each one of those seals was opened. And then, in Revelation, chapter 8, verse 1, He opened the Seventh Seal; and when He opened the Seventh Seal in Heaven, there was silence in Heaven for about half an hour.

Now, when it refers to silence in Heaven for about half an hour: remember that when it refers to half an hour in Heaven, for human beings it is not literally 30 minutes, because one day is with the Lord as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day.

Second Peter, chapter 3, verse 8, and Psalm 90, verse 4 (the psalm of the prophet Moses), which Saint Peter referred to saying that one day before the Lord is as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day; and he says that this cannot be ignored. Let us see how Saint Peter says this here in chapter 3, verse 8, of Second Peter:

But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.”

It is something we cannot ignore. If we ignore it, we will all be confused in the Scripture. What do I mean by “we will all be confused”? Do you want to see whether we would be confused without understanding that one day for the Lord is a thousand years for human beings and a thousand years for human beings is one day? Let us see, the apostle Saint Paul says in his epistle to the Hebrews, chapter 1, verse 1 to 2, says:

God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,

Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds.”

And about two thousand years have already passed; and Saint Paul was saying back then, two thousand years ago, that God spoke through His Son, through Jesus Christ, “in these last days,” and two thousand years have already passed.

Was Saint Paul mistaken when he said that they were living in the last days when God was speaking through Jesus Christ? He was not mistaken. It is because one day is with the Lord as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day; and when God speaks to us about the last days, for human beings, those are not three days that are 24 hours long, rather, they are three millenniums.

Notice, also Saint Peter, speaking to us in the book of Acts, in chapter 2 of the book of Acts, notice what Saint Peter says: chapter 2, verse 14 and on says… On the Day of Pentecost, when they were filled with the Spirit of God, some people thought they were drunk, and others well, they did not know what was happening and they asked “what does this mean?” The book of Acts, chapter 2, verse 14 and on, says:

But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:

For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day.”

In other words, it is 8 to 9 in the morning, which is the third hour. The first hour is from 6 to 7 in the morning, the second hour is from 7 to 8 in the morning and the third hour is from 8 to 9 in the morning; that is the fourth watch that happens in the morning, from 6 to 9 in the morning:

But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;

And it shall come to pass in the last days (when? In the last days), saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy.”

Here it is talking about the last days and it says that God promised to pour out His Holy Spirit at the last days; and since the Day of Pentecost until now, He has been pouring out His Holy Spirit upon every person who has believed in Christ as his Savior and has washed his sins in the Blood of Jesus Christ; and the believers in Christ who have cleansed their sins in the Blood of Christ, He has been filling them with His Holy Spirit, baptizing them with His Holy Spirit; and thus, what has He been bringing forth? He has been bringing forth the new birth, which Christ spoke to Nicodemus about, saying: “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Except a man be born of what? Of the Water and of the Spirit, this is in John, chapter 3, verse 1 to 6.

Now we can see what has been happening since the Day of Pentecost until now: Christ has been carrying out a new creation, He has been bringing forth the new birth of millions of human beings, of millions of human beings from age to age, He has been bringing forth the new birth in the Kingdom of God of millions of human beings.

That is why the call of God comes from age to age, the call of God through the messenger of each age: to bring forth that miracle of the new birth of the sons and daughters of God who live at this time; and that is where the person receives a new theophanic spirit, which is a theophanic body of the sixth dimension, a theophanic body like our body, but from another dimension, and if a person dies, then he goes on to live in that body in Paradise; and there, he walks like we walk here, he speaks; the only thing is that they do not eat there, nor do they work, nor do they sleep, because they do not have the needs we have on this Earth and in this dimension and in this mortal, corruptible and temporary body.

Now, notice what has been happening since the Day of Pentecost until now, until these days referred to as the last days.

And now, when Christ was 4 to 7 years old, the fifth millennium began; and therefore, the last days began before God, which are the last millenniums for human beings, which are the fifth millennium, sixth millennium and seventh millennium.

And out of the last millenniums, which is the last one, which is the final one? The seventh millennium, which is the Last Day that Christ spoke about, in which He will resurrect all His believers who have died, John, chapter 6, verse 39 to 40, says:

And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day (When? At the Last Day).

And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.”

And if we continue reading this passage in chapter 6, we will find two more occasions in which when Christ speaks about the resurrection of His believers, He says: “And I will raise him up at the Last Day.”

And now, what is the Last Day? The Last Day before God is the seventh millennium for human beings.

And now, see how Saint Peter and Saint Paul were not mistaken when they said that those days in which they were living were the last days? Because the last days before God are the last millenniums for human beings: the fifth millennium, sixth millennium and seventh millennium.

If we add to the calendar the years of delay it has, then we are already in the seventh millennium, and therefore, we are at the Last Day, where Christ will be speaking to His Church with that Great Voice of Trumpet and making known to Her all these things which must shortly come to pass; and all of this is through His Angel Messenger, whom He sends to testify these things to all churches and to all nations and to all tongues and to all peoples.

“The Lord God of the holy prophets sent His Angel to shew unto His servants the things which must shortly be done.” Revelation, chapter 22, verse 6.

Now, we can see the mystery of the last days. We have seen that the last days before God are the last millenniums: the fifth millennium, the sixth millennium and the seventh millennium; just as the last days of the week are Thursday which is the fifth day of the week; Friday, which is the sixth day of the week; and Saturday, which is the seventh day of the week; and then, a new week begins on Sunday.

Now, we have seen what the last days are and we have seen the mystery of what God has been doing in the last days until this time, and what He will do at the Last Day, in other words, in the seventh millennium.

We find that in the seventh millennium the Kingdom of God will be established on this planet Earth in the midst of the Hebrew people; and Christ will sit on the Throne of David, because He is the heir to the Throne of David.

The Archangel Gabriel spoke about Jesus and he spoke to the virgin Mary saying the following, he says… the Archangel Gabriel said to Mary in Luke, chapter 1, verse 30 and on:

And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.

And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus.

He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:

And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.”

Here we have the promise of Christ receiving the Throne of David. The Lord, God Almighty:

...And the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:

And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.”

And now, Christ says in Revelation, chapter 3, verse 21:

To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.”

Now, the Throne of the Father is in Heaven, it is the Throne where God is, in which Christ also sat when He ascended to Heaven, because He sat at the right hand of God in Heaven, on the Throne of God.

And now, just as He sat on the Throne in Heaven, Christ will sit on His Throne, which is the Throne of David, and the overcomer will sit with Him, who will be His Angel Messenger at the Last Day; because Christ will reclaim His Throne, the Throne of David, at the Last Day (in other words, in the seventh millennium), to establish the Kingdom of God on Earth, among the Hebrew people; and from that Throne, He will reign over the Hebrew people and over all the nations.

Now, we have seen that all these things are promised to be fulfilled, when? At the Last Day.

This is the most glorious time of all times. If we add to the calendar the years of delay it has, then we are already at the Last Day, in other words, in the seventh millennium; but if we do not add to the calendar the years it is behind, then notice, what remains is only what is left of this year 1998, the year 1999 and the year 2000, and then we will enter into the seventh millennium and the 21st century; so either way: we are either already in it or we are very close to entering the seventh millennium.

Now, it is important to know the Divine Program relevant to the seventh millennium, it is the Program of Christ as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, as King of kings and Lord of lords in His Reclaiming Work, in which He comes manifested at the Last Day to carry out His Reclaiming Work.

He appears in Revelation, chapter 1, verses 10 to 18, He appears there with a garment down to His feet, with a golden girdle across His chest and He also appears with His feet as pillars of fire; He also appears with His eyes as a flame of fire, He appears with His hairs like white wool, He also appears with a sword that goes out of His mouth; all of these are the symbols of what Christ will be manifesting, of all those attributes of Christ, which He will be manifesting at the Last Day, in other words, in the seventh millennium.

Notice, the Sword that goes out of His mouth does not mean that instead of a tongue, at the Last Day, Christ will have a literal sword coming out of His mouth. The Sword that comes out of the mouth of the Son of Man is the Word of God, which is sharper and more penetrating than any two-edged sword; that is why the Word of God is represented in a sword. Saint Paul says that the Sword of the Spirit is what? The Word of God5.

And now, the mouth of God has always been God’s prophets; and the Word of God has always come out of the mouth of God’s prophets, because God has put it in the heart and in the mouth of each prophet He has sent. In the book of Deuteronomy, chapter 18, verse 15 and on says:

The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken…”

Who does Moses say the people are called to hear? The prophet who God sends; and in verse 18 of this same chapter 18, verses 18 to 19, says:

I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth…”

Where does God put His words? In the mouth of the prophet He sends. This prophecy has been partially fulfilled in the prophets God has sent, it was also fulfilled in all its fullness in our beloved Lord Jesus Christ; and it has also been fulfilled in the seven angel messengers of the seven ages, and at this end time, it is fulfilled in the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

And now, where does God put His Word, which is the two-edged Sword? In the mouth of the prophet He sends, because the mouth of God has always been God’s prophets.

“…And will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.”

Everyone says: “I want to hear the Voice of God,” well notice where the Voice of God is in the time in which a person has been granted to live: it is in the mouth of the messenger who God sends for that age or for that dispensation. If you find the messenger and hear him preaching, you will be hearing the Voice of God, the Voice of Christ, you will be hearing the Voice of the Almighty God making known what the person needs to know, and you will be seeing the Sword that comes out of the mouth of God, the messenger of God pertaining to this time.

And now, what will he speak? Everything God will send him to speak to the people.

Whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.”

In other words, it is not a matter of a person saying: “I am not interested, and I am not going to have anything to do with what that man is talking about.” Since every person has free will, he can reject or accept, receive what is being said; and according to what a person does, such will be the benefit he will receive. If he rejects the Word, God says:

Whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.”

Now, he who receives the Word of God, well, he receives the blessing of God; and the promised Word, the blessings promised, become flesh in the person who receives the Word of God; because Christ said: “My words are spirit and they are life,” and “he who hears my Word has eternal life, and shall not come into condemnation, but has gone from death to life.”6

It is for the ones who hear the Word of God, through the messenger God sends, at the time in which they were granted to live, the ones who have the promise of a resurrection at the Last Day if their physical bodies have already died, and if they are alive, they have the promise of the transformation of their bodies.

That is why, referring to the end time and the resurrection of the dead in Christ and the transformation for us who are alive, Saint Paul tells us in First Corinthians, chapter 15, verses 49 and on:

And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly (in other words, we will be in the image and likeness of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ, we will have a glorified body like the body of the Lord Jesus Christ).

Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”

When will the resurrection of the dead in Christ and the transformation of us who are alive take place? When that Final Trumpet is sounding, which is the Trumpet of the Gospel of the Kingdom being preached by the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is the Voice of Christ through His Angel Messenger, that Final Trumpet or Great Voice of Trumpet, is the one that all those who will be changed at the Last Day will be hearing; and in Paradise, all the dead in Christ will also be hearing that Trumpet, because from there, they can look over here and they can hear and they can also see everything that is happening in the Mystical Body of Jesus Christ. Let us see, it goes on to say:

In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.

But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Now, notice that at the end time, the Final Trumpet or Great Voice of Trumpet, which is the Trumpet of the Gospel of the Kingdom, will be sounding; and the dead in Christ will resurrect in incorruptible bodies and we who are alive will be hearing that Voice of Trumpet sounding, that Message of the Gospel of the Kingdom being preached and reaching the depths of our souls; and when we see the dead in Christ resurrected, we will be changed, that is the promise of Christ for all of us.

Now, we are living in the most glorious time of all times, we are living at the end time, we are living at the time of the Seventh Seal; the Seventh Seal is the Coming of the Lord, the Coming of the Son of Man.

Christ said in Matthew, chapter 16, verse 27 to 28, regarding the Coming of the Son of Man, He said:

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.”

He spoke of the Coming of the Son of Man with His Angels for this end time, and on Mount Transfiguration He showed the Coming of the Kingdom of God; and that is the reason why Moses and Elijah appeared there, who are the Angels of the Son of Man for the end time; they are the Two Olive Trees and the Two Candlesticks who come with that Great Voice of Trumpet, which is the Great Voice of Trumpet of the Gospel of the Kingdom, to call and gather together the elect among the gentiles first, and then to call and gather together the elect of the Hebrew people with the Message of the Great Voice of Trumpet of the Gospel of the Kingdom, proclaiming and revealing the mystery of the Seventh Seal, the mystery of the Second Coming of Christ with His Angels at the Last Day.

That mystery, which has been hidden in the mind of God for millions of years, has been hidden in the mind of God since before the foundation of the world, it will be revealed, will be proclaimed at this end time through the Message of the Great Voice of Trumpet, through the Message of the Great Voice of Trumpet of the Gospel of the Kingdom that the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ brings for the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ and for the Hebrew people.

Now, we have reached the most glorious time of all times, we have reached the time in which God’s blessing has been in the West, that is, in the western region. And Christ has promised the greatest blessing for the West, because He said: the Coming of the Son of Man would be as the lightning comes out of the East (the First Coming of Christ was there, in the East, the Middle East, in the land of Israel), it comes out of the East and shines where? It shines, it is manifested, where? In the West7.

The West is the one that has the promise of the manifestation of the Son of Man as the lightning, to shine and enlighten our understanding, so that all of us may understand all these things which must shortly come to pass at this end time, and we can understand that the blessing of God at this end time is in the West, shining and blessing our souls, and filling us with the knowledge of all these things which must come to pass at this end time.

And now, we have seen how under God’s blessing, North America has had the blessing of the seventh stage or age of the gentile Church, where God has sent the forerunner of the Second Coming of Christ, who has already finished his ministry and has left; but his Message has remained.

And then, Latin America and the Caribbean have the blessing of being the territory of and for the Great Voice of Trumpet, the Voice of Christ, to be speaking to us all these things which must shortly come to pass, and thus, filling us with the understanding, the knowledge of His entire Program pertaining to this end time.

We are in the territory of God’s blessing: the American continent. We are in the territory of the West, where the Son of Man as the lightning, will be shining at this end time, enlightening our soul, our understanding, our whole being, so that we may know all these things which must shortly come to pass, and thus obtain God’s blessing promised for this end time.

This is a time of blessing for all the sons and daughters of God, this is a time of blessing for all those who hear the Voice of Christ, that Great Voice of Trumpet at this end time, making known to us all these things which must shortly come to pass, according to the biblical prophecies relevant to this end time. We have reached the most glorious time of all times for children, youth, adults and elderly people.

Seek God all the days of your lives, serve God with fear and trembling, with reverence, with all your heart; and never in your lives depart from His way; so that when the resurrection of the dead in Christ takes place, we are able to see them and be changed, and have the new body; and thus, our earthly struggles come to an end with a great victory in divine love.

The Scripture says not to let that which is lame be turned out of the way8. What does this mean? That people who are spiritually lame, who have problems walking, who have difficulty walking, who have faults in their lives, should not leave God’s path, but instead, be spiritually healed, and fix their lives and walk properly; because the recommendation is not that if someone has faults he should depart from God’s path, but rather, that God work in his life, perform a miracle in his life and that he be spiritually healed.

Now, we have reached the most glorious time of all times, we have reached the time of the end, we have reached the Last Day if we add to the calendar the years it is behind; and we have reached the time in which the Seventh Seal will be opened and that mystery of the Seventh Seal will be made known to all of the sons and daughters of God. Where? In the West, the Western continent, the American continent, in Central America, South America and Caribbean part, which was the part left to receive God’s blessing; because the rest of the stages of the Church of Jesus Christ were fulfilled in Asia Minor, Europe and North America, and the stage of Latin America and the Caribbean was left, which pertains to the Age of the Cornerstone and the Most Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Jesus Christ.

We have reached the most glorious time of all times; therefore, hold on tight to Jesus Christ every day of your life, as Jacob held on to the Angel of the Lord until he received the blessing of the Angel of the Lord, and let us hold on tight to Jesus Christ at this Last Day until we obtain our transformation, until we obtain the new body He has promised each one of you, and me, too.

It has been a great privilege to be with you, kind friends and brethren present, radio listeners, viewers and also those who are connected through the internet, it has been a great blessing to share with you these things which must shortly come to pass at this end time.

May God bless you, and may you all have a good evening. I will leave Reverend Miguel Bermudez Marin with us.

THE SEVENTH SEAL AND THE AMERICAN NATION.”
