WHERE THE NAME OF GOD IS, THERE SHALL BE THE BLESSING Rev. William Soto Santiago Sunday, July 7th, 2013 - Cayey, Puerto Rico.
Very good afternoon, beloved friends and brethren present, and those in other nations, ministers and their congregations, brothers and sisters everywhere. May the blessings of Christ the Angel of the Covenant, be upon you, bless you, and may He open your understanding, may He open the Scriptures to you, and may the Holy Spirit teach us His Word on this occasion. In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen. Every Sunday always, is a very special day for all believers in Christ, in which we always remember Christ's resurrection on the first day of the week, which is, Sunday morning. For that reason Christians gathered on Sunday from the time of the apostles, the first day of the week to worship God; and Saturday they also gathered there in the land of Israel, to go to the synagogues to bear witness of Christ. I thank the Rev. Jose Benjamin Perez for the part he always does, of reading on the subject that we will have, which prepares to all them who are present and those in other nations, so that beforehand, you know what the theme of each Sunday is. That is a good preparation and thus it helps me not to have to read to much: you already heard it. That’s why it is very important that you are attentive to what he reads, because that is what is going to be spoken of, at the Bible school, at the preaching. Therefore, in all countries you should be already connected for when he comes forward, everyone should be connected listening; because that preparation is very important for all who will listen. If they miss that preparation, then perhaps I may not read all these Scriptures, those quotations, and you all will not know what I'm talking about if I do not read them at the time; but since he already read them, you already know what we are speaking of. That part is very, very important. They have not played the video or videos of the construction yet, so it's good to play them as to know how the construction is going, and if they also have (if they have ready the Senate greeting there) about the presentation of the project: "Footprints to remember" of the Embassy of Peace Activists, over in the Senate of Bogotá (it's also good to play it). And if the one of the construction is ready, it’s good to play it. And if it is available the one from Guatemala, you can also play it. Let's see if they are... When they are being played, then we already see which country it is from. So you can play three of them if you have all three, or if you have two then play only two, because it is important that you are aware of what is happening in other countries, the work that is being carried out, all those who collaborate with the Embassy of Peace Activists, to know that your contribution is well invested, and a very very important work is being carried out with the work of the Embassy of Peace Activists, which is very important; and it is connected not only to Christianity but to the Jews and to all governments, academic institutions and also other institutions of all countries, therefore that work is very important, that's why we're doing it, otherwise it would be a waste of time for me to be working on something that is not in God's Program; but it is in God’s Program, so that you may know why I work and we work at the Embassy of Peace Activists in all its projects. Well, if everything is ready I ask you all to excuse me so that you can watch what is recorded and I’ll be back with you in a few minutes. [Presentation of corporate videos] In those videos you already saw how the work of both, the Embassy in different countries, as well as the work of the Great Tent-Cathedral is going, which is advanced but to advance more it is required-more-support in a bigger way, of everyone who is supporting this project of the Great Tent-Cathedral. Now we will read in Numbers, Chapter 6, and also in Isaiah, chapter 52, verses 5 onwards. It says as follows in Numbers, chapter 6, verses 22 to 27: "The Lord ..." This is: the Lord, but the translation says JEHOVAH. That's rather: the Eternal. "And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying, Speak unto Aaron and his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them, The Lord bless thee, and keep thee: The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace. And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel; and I will bless them." And Isaiah, chapter 52, verse 5 onwards, says: “Now therefore, what have I here, saith the LORD, that my people is taken away for nought? they that rule over them make them to howl, saith the LORD; and my name continually every day is blasphemed. Therefore my people shall know my name: therefore they shall know in that day that I am he that doth speak: behold, it is I.” May God bless our souls with His Word and allow us to understand It. "WHERE THE NAME OF GOD IS, THERE WILL BE THE BLESSING (HIS BLESSING)." Throughout biblical history we find that all the prophets wanted to know the Name of God. And now, anyone who reads the Bible wishes to know the Name of God. We find Moses (who was called by God in Exodus, chapter 3) and the Angel, which is God's heavenly body, the theophanic body of God, which is the image of God. He appeared to Moses in a flame of fire, in a tree, in a bush, and says to him: "I am the God of your father (in other words, the God of Amram, father of Moses), the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob." God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The same God now appearing to Moses, who was none other than the one chosen by God before the foundation of the world for the deliverance of the Jewish people, when God told Abraham that his descendants would be in bondage in a strange land, that they would dwell in a strange land and would serve them for four hundred years. Chapter 15 of Genesis, verses 13 onwards, says: “And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance. And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good old age. But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again…” In the fourth generation they would return to the land God promised and gave to Abraham. They would be four hundred years oppressed as slaves in that strange land, which became Egypt. And now we find that Moses meets God's Angel, the Angel of God in which God is speaking, and through which God always spoke, speaks and will speak ... because that is God's heavenly body, the theophany body of God, which is Christ in the spiritual dimension, He is the anointed One in the sixth dimension, the angelic dimension. That’s why the Messiah-Prince in His heavenly body is the Angel of the Covenant. That is what is promised to Israel: that the Angel of the Covenant is who will come, and so will the Messiah-Prince be: the Angel of the Covenant will come incarnate. See, Malachi, chapter 3, verse 1 onwards, says: “Behold, I send my messenger, who will prepare the way before me ..." The One who sends him says that he is sent to prepare the way before Him. For the first Coming of Christ it was John the Baptist, for the Second Coming of Christ it was the Rev. William Branham, for Christianity. "... and the Lord whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple ..." Who will come? To whom will he be preparing the way? To the Lord, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. "... and the Lord whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to His temple.” There is the physical temple of stones and there is the human Temple, which is the physical body where God dwelt in all His fullness which was the veil of flesh called Jesus. "... And shall suddenly come to his temple the Lord whom you seek, and the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in." See, the Lord God the Father and the Angel of the Covenant, God's heavenly body, the image of God, who is the Angel of the Covenant, the Angel of God. "…Behold he shall come, says the Lord of hosts." It is a divine promise, of which the first part was already fulfilled in the days of Jesus and the second part corresponds to the end time, in what Christianity calls the Second Coming of Christ. And as He sent a messenger forerunner, John the Baptist, preparing the way for the Lord for His First Coming, He sent the Rev. William Branham preparing the way for the Lord in His Second Coming. This is the most important subject in the entire Bible: the Coming of the Messiah. And now the Lord, the Angel of the Covenant comes to His Temple. And now, what does this have to do with the Name of the Lord? wherein the blessing is, and which Name is used to bless Israel, and therefore to also bless Christianity? In Exodus, chapter 3, verse 13 onwards, says: “And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them? And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.” Here He is showing Moses the Name of God, the Name God told Moses to tell them ... or for Moses to tell the people if they asked for the Name of God, the Name of the One who was sending him. “And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever (this is my memorial), this is my memorial unto all generations.” And then in Exodus chapter 6, verse 1 to 3, says: “Then the LORD said unto Moses, Now shalt thou see what I will do to Pharaoh: for with a strong hand shall he let them go, and with a strong hand shall he drive them out of his land. And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the LORD: And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.” In other words, it is to Moses that He makes known His Name: I am, which are four consonants, which are: Y (in Greek) HWH. Those are the letters of the sacred Name of God. And now, where did God place His Name? It's important to know ... Remember that He is speaking to Moses through His Angel, the Angel of the Covenant, which is God's heavenly body. In chapter 23, verses 20 to 23 says: "Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and bring thee into the place which I have prepared. Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not, for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him." Where did God place His Name? Where is the Name of God? In His Angel, the Angel of the Covenant, which is the image of God, which is God's heavenly body, which is the Christ, the Messiah in the sixth dimension, the Messiah in the angelic dimension; which will then become flesh, then He will have a physical likeness, which will be the Messiah in His physical body, wherein Christ will be, the Messiah, in His body and with His heavenly body; and therefore God will dwell in Him, because the Angel of the Covenant is the heavenly body of God, and Jesus Christ in His body of flesh, His physical body, is the physical likeness of God in whom dwelt the fullness of the Godhead. This is why Jesus said: "The Father that dwelleth in me, He doeth the works." That’s why also John the Baptist saw the Holy Spirit descending like a dove upon Jesus and rested upon Jesus. The Angel of the Covenant is the Holy Spirit, a spirit is a body of another dimension, a spiritual body. We saw already where God has placed His Name: in the Angel of the Covenant, in His heavenly body, and then Christ Jesus in John, chapter 5, verse 43, says: "I am come in my Father's name." And now He comes in the Name of His Father. The Name of God, that God placed on His Angel, the Angel of the Covenant, has been placed in His physical body also; that’s why the Angel Gabriel tells the Virgin Mary that the child she is going to have, which would be called the Son God, to call His Name Jesus (Hebrew: Yejoshua); and therefore in that Name are the letters of the Name of God, there's the Name that God revealed to Moses. And now, it says: "But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice and do all that I speak, I will be an enemy to your enemies and an adversary to your adversaries. For mine Angel shall go before thee ... " The Angel went leading the way before Moses and the people of Israel in their journey through the wilderness toward the Promised Land. We can now see where the Name of God is: it is in His angelic temple, in His heavenly body, and then it is placed also in the temple of His body or body of flesh called Jesus. This is why Jesus said: "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up." Many thought He was speaking of the temple of stones, but He was speaking of the temple of His body. (John, chapter 2). And now, remember that St. Paul says: "Know ye not that ye are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?" See? Every believer in Christ is a human temple where God in Holy Spirit dwells. And now we have pretty clear where the Name of God is. And wherever the Name of God is, there is the blessing of God for the people. The blessing of God for the people comes from the place where the Name of God is: the blessing comes from Christ; because in the seed of Abraham, which is Christ the Messiah, all nations shall be blessed. In Him was, is and will forever be the Name of God. And now, where Christ in Holy Spirit is manifested: there consequently, will be the Name of God which is in Christ; and that is the place to worship God, the place of worship, and from there the worship goes to God the Father. For those who come to God, they must worship Him, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth. [John 4:23-24] It is not a matter to worship God without knowledge, it is to worship God knowing where the Name of God is, the Name of blessing, the Name to worship God. Because one does not worship God if God's Name is not there. That's why Paul would say: "Whatever you do, whether in words or deeds, do all in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ." [Colossians 3:17] Christ also said: "I am the way, the truth and the life and no one comes to the Father but by me." [John 14:6] We cannot approach God unless it be through Christ, and in Him is the eternal Name of God, in which Name the people have to worship God. And now, Christ also says: "And whatever you ask the Father in my name, I will do." [St. John 14:13] "Ye asked nothing in my Name yet," He also says in John. [John 16:23-24] Therefore, to ask, you have to ask in the Name of the Lord; to worship, one must worship in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and to receive the blessing of God; the blessing is cast over the people in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ , which is God’s Name for redemption, salvation. Because YEHOSHUA translated into Greek as Jesus is the Name of blessing; it is the Name that is used to bless the people and even to pray to God, worship God, ask God requests, offer hymns of praise too, and also to pray for the sick. Therefore, it is important to know that the Name of God for the Dispensation of Grace, for salvation, for Redemption is LORD JESUS CHRIST, in Hebrew is Yehoshua. The Name Jesus is Yehoshua in Hebrew, which means "Savior," "Redeemer." And now, Christ, the veil of flesh called Jesus, where the fullness of God dwelt, and the fullness of God dwells in Christ glorified; in His glorified body dwells the fullness of God; and Christ in the Holy Spirit dwells in the midst of His Church . Christ said: "I am with you always, until the end of the world." Matthew, chapter 28, verse 20. And He also once said: "Where two or three are gathered in my name, there I will be." [St. Matthew 18:20] Remember that believers in Christ gather to worship God, and to sing to God and present their requests to God, that is, make their requests to God, they gather in the Lord's Name. Christ said, "Where two or three are gathered in my name." What is the Name of the Lord? Lord Jesus Christ. "And whatever you do, whether by word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ." [Colossians 3:17] Therefore, the name is important; because if the name is not there it is like a check without the signature of the account holder: which has no funds, because the name of the person who has the funds is not there, the name of that person is not there. Therefore, from which funds, from what account is one going to withdraw, if the owner’s signature of the account is not there, which is the one that authorizes the payment of that check? Therefore, it is important to know God's Name placed on the Angel of the Covenant, on Christ, to worship God, to make our requests to God and to pray for the sick as well, and to preach the Gospel, because the Gospel is preached in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, because it is the Gospel of Christ. "There is no other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." [Acts 4:12] And now, the blessing of God is in the Name, in the Name of Christ, the Name of the Lord in His first Coming for the Dispensation of Grace. It is important to know these things so that those who seek and worship God, do it so in spirit and in truth, it cannot be done incorrectly. And since Christ is in the midst of His Church, which is His Mystical Body of believers, there is, therefore, the Name of God, because Christ is there in Holy Spirit, Who bears the Name of God. And that is why in the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ one prays in the Name of the Lord, and the preaching is done in the Name of Jesus Christ and we make requests to God in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. That's where the blessing of God is: in Christ. And Christ is in His Church, and therefore the blessing of God through Christ is in the midst of the Church. And from the Church passes onto the human beings who hear the preaching of Christ and receive Him as only and sufficient Savior, and receive the blessing of salvation and eternal Life, and receive the Spirit of Christ, which pro duces the new birth in the person; and thus enters the Kingdom of God. Let us remember the conversation of Jesus and Nicodemus, where He tells him in Chapter 3 of the Gospel of John, verse 1 onwards: "Verily, verily, I say unto you, except a man is born again he cannot see the Kingdom of God." He cannot understand It, he cannot see It, cannot see what the Kingdom of God is, which is in the spiritual realm but in the Millennium It will be in the physical realm as well. Nicodemus asks, "How can this be? Can a man when he is old (that is, as an adult) enter the womb of his mother and be born, born again?" Jesus said: "Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter the Kingdom of God." These are God's requirements. Therefore, no matter how good the person is, without being born of the Water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the Kingdom of God, there is no other way. So as to live on this Earth, one had to be born on this Earth. Therefore, the new birth is required, in which the person receives the Spirit of Christ; and there the new birth comes about, and the person is born in the Kingdom of Christ. And now, being that it is in His Church, the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, where Christ in Holy Spirit has been since the day of Pentecost until now; we have to understand that the blessing of Christ is in His Church, and it goes out of His Church for every human being living on this Earth. That’s why the Gospel of Christ is preached, in order for the human beings to receive the blessing of Christ, the blessing of salvation and eternal Life. And now, we have seen where the blessing of God is. From there the blessing comes for all the human beings, and that's how God blesses all nations, through Abraham's seed, which is Christ, in whom and by whom all nations would be blessed. The preaching of the Gospel of Christ is the greatest blessing which is proclaimed, because the Gospel is unto salvation for Jews and also for Greeks, for every human being who lives on this Earth. That’s why the Gospel began with Jews, Christianity began with Jews, and then went out to the Gentiles also. And now we can see, therefore, that that which is in the Old Testament, the Covenant that was given by God on Mount Sinai to Moses, plus everything that was given by God from Adam to the time of John the Baptist, is type and figure, is the shadow of things to come in the New Covenant that God would establish in the midst of the human race. There they had the paschal lamb, and in the New Covenant we find the Passover Lamb, which is Christ taking away the sin of the world. He is our Passover, (I Corinthians, chapter 5, verse 7). And so on, we find that all the things that are in the Old Covenant, the Old Testament, materializes in the New Covenant, in the New Testament. Back there it was the shadow of things to come later in the Dispensation of Grace, in order for all heavenly things to be materialized. And it is embodied in the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, which is in and under the New Covenant, and where the Name of God for the Dispensation of Grace is. We also find in Revelation, chapter 2, verse 17, that God will give the hidden manna to the overcomer, and He will give him a white stone, and on it a name that no one knows saving himself, and now ... and will give him to eat of the hidden manna. Says chapter 2, verse 17 of Revelation: “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.” And now, it speaks to us of a New Name written on the white stone, and also the promise that He will give him of the hidden manna. He gives all this to the messenger, and the messenger makes it known to the people, that which the people should know, the rest of it he keeps it for himself because he has to have a greater knowledge than the people, in order to teach the people. Now, it speaks to us of a New Name that will be given to the overcomer, who will receive the white stone with a new name. And only he will ... “...which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.” He who receives the white stone is the one who receives the New Name, because it is in the white stone; and he is the only one who will know it; and he can keep that secret all the days of his life, because that Name will only be revealed in the end of time, in the Golden Age of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. That will be the most important Name. Now, in Revelation chapter 3, verse 12 tells us also of the New Name and says: “Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out (that is, He will make him an important person in the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ) ... and he shall go no more out (this is, he will remain in the Lord's Church) and I will write upon him the name of my God.” That's for the overcomer. God will write His Name upon him. Therefore, just as He placed it in the Angel of the Covenant and in Jesus, He will also place the New Name upon the overcomer. “... I will write upon him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.” And now here Christ in Holy Spirit speaking says that He has a New Name. That is the Name by which He will reign as King during the Millennium. Here also, in Revelation, chapter 19, verse 11 onwards, says: “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.” This is not the Name Jesus because everyone knows the Name Jesus (or Yehoshua in Hebrew). It is His New Name. “And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.” These are the believers in Christ, that after the resurrection in glorified bodies and transformation of those who are alive, will go with Christ to the Wedding Supper of the Lamb, and that's for three years and a half there in Heaven, in that feast. And then they will return to Earth with Christ to begin the Millennial Kingdom. “And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” The Name that no one understands but Himself, which He has, is the Name as King of kings and Lord of lords which He will have for the Millennial Kingdom, it is the Name with which He comes in His Second Coming. He comes with that Name which says it's a New Name. In Revelation chapter 7, we find the Angel with the Seal of the living God, who calls and gathers one hundred and forty-four thousand and seals them on their foreheads. And in Revelation, chapter 14, they are already sealed on their foreheads. It says: “And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads.” In other words, they are already with the knowledge of the Lord's Name and the Name of God. In other words, with the knowledge of the New Name which Christ speaks in Holy Spirit in Revelation, chapter 2, verse 17 and Revelation chapter 3, verse 12. Then Revelation, chapter 22, verse 3 onwards, says: "And there shall be no more curse (and that's in eternity) ... And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it (in other words, in the city, in the New Jerusalem, which will be upon the Earth in the territory of the Middle East where Israel is, there will be no more curse there, neither on planet Earth) ... “And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads (the Name of God and of the Lamb will be in the foreheads, in the minds of all who will be in the eternal Kingdom of God). There shall be no night there; and they need no candle nor light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.” So will it be in eternity. The heavenly Throne of God will be there in that city, and the Throne of the Lamb, that is, the Throne of David and God's eternal Throne will be there. And the territory of Israel will not only be the capital of this world but the capital of the entire universe. God will dwell on this Earth with His angelic body called the Angel of the Covenant and with His glorified physical body which is the body of the Lord Jesus Christ; and all the believers in Christ will be there, because that will be the city of God for His children, for God to dwell with His children in that city. That city will bear the Eternal Name of God, that city will bear the New Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Revelation chapter 3, verse 20 to 21, says: “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me." If He is to sup, then it is evening time; and if it is evening time, the fulfillment falls onto the territory of the West, because the sun sets in the evening by the West. Supper is in the evening time. "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.” He will grant the overcomer to sit with Him on His Throne, the Throne of David, just as Christ overcame and sat down in the heavenly Throne of God the Father. He Himself said in chapter 26, verse 64 of Matthew, that He would sit at the right hand of the power of God (that's on the Throne of God), and thus He would have all the power of Heaven and Earth, full power of all Creation. In Matthew, chapter 28, verse 18 onwards, says: "All power is given unto me in Heaven and on Earth." God was not left without power, because God is in His glorified veil of flesh there: Jesus Christ, in other words, God is in Him. The angelic body is the Angel of the Covenant and God is within that heavenly body, with and within: with that heavenly body within the physical glorified body of Jesus Christ. As simple as that. And in that manner God is in His image and likeness; as the human beings, that were made, created in the image and likeness of God. Therefore, that’s how God is, in His heavenly body within the glorified physical body of Jesus Christ. Here is a great mystery regarding to the overcomer “... 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 (he must overcome, he must obtain the victory in the Last Day).” [Revelation 3:21] That is the blessing that the mother of James and John sought when they went, in chapter 20, verse 20 to 25, to Jesus (there in Matthew); they went to Jesus and she says to Him: “I want to make a request." Jesus asks: "What do you want?" She says: "That in Thy Kingdom these my two sons, may sit, one at your right and one at your left.” That's the most important position after the position of Christ in Heaven. That tells us that just as the Father sat Christ at His right hand in His Throne: “As I also overcame and am set down with My Father on His Throne," thus in that manner, where He was given all power in Heaven and on Earth, in this same manner Christ will grant the overcomer to sit at His right and at His left. That was what the mother of James and John was looking for, for every mother believer in Christ wants the best for their children; and she took them before Christ; that’s what the mothers who love their children do: they take their children to the Feet of Christ. It is the greatest thing a mother can do for their children. There is nothing greater, because salvation and eternal Life depends on that, to see them in the Kingdom of God forever, for salvation is the greatest thing a person can receive; it is eternal Life what the person receives in receiving Christ as only and sufficient Savior. Christ Himself said: "My sheep hear my Voice and they follow me, and I know them, and I give them eternal Life, and they shall never perish. My Father which gave them me is greater than all, and no one can pluck them out of my Father's hand. "(John, chapter 10, verse 27 to 30). And then He says: "I and the Father are one." In other words, God the Father, God the Holy Spirit (the heavenly body), and God in physical body (physical likeness). The heavenly body of God: the spiritual body of God, it is the image of God, a body of another dimension in which He appeared to many prophets at different times. That’s why in John, chapter 1, verse 18, says: "no one has ever seen God, the only begotten Son who is in the bosom of the Father, has declared Him, has made Him known." In other words, those who said they saw God, what they saw was the heavenly body of God, the theophanic body of God. Then also those who saw Jesus Christ were seeing God. Christ said: "He who has seen Me has seen the Father; and why do you say then, show us the Father? Don’t you know that I am in the Father and the Father in me "(John, chapter 14, verses 6 and onward). And now, our theme: "WHERE THE NAME OF GOD IS, THERE SHALL BE THE BLESSING." And the Name of God is in Christ the Angel of the Covenant, and Christ in the Holy Spirit is in the midst of His Church. Therefore, from the midst of His Church He blesses everyone who receives Him as Savior and believes the promises of God, which are realized in the midst of the Church and through the Church, being the Church Christ’s instrument to fulfill His promises. And as God worked through Jesus fulfilling the promises of the Coming of the Messiah at that time, carrying out the works that had to be carried out; Christ in the Holy Spirit, God in the Holy Spirit in His Church, works and fulfills the promises for the Dispensation of Grace for each age, including our time. It is by using His Church that those divine promises will be seeing materialized, because the hands that God has by means of Christ on Earth, are the members of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, it is concerned to the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ to believe all those promises and to work for them so they become a reality; knowing that the Church of Christ is the instrument to fulfill all that He has promised to His Church. That’s why, in the Church is the Name of God which is in the Angel of the Covenant, and then It passed onto the body of flesh, and passes onto the Mystical Body of Christ, the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. There is the place of worship: in Christ, and Christ is in His Church. And in our time, since the Church is a spiritual temple made of living stones, human beings who believe in Christ, which from stage to stage they have been gathered in His Church, the Mystical Body of Christ in past ages, pertaining to the Holy Place of the Church, the spiritual Temple; and for this time we pass onto the Holy of Holiest in the Golden Age of the Church, the Age of Cornerstone, which is the Holy of Holiest of the spiritual Temple, where God’s Name is, the Name of the Lord, and will be revealed at the appropriate time. Therefore, they will know God's Eternal Name, the Name of the city of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ’s New Name. He's going to write It upon the overcomer, and the overcomer will be in His Church. Therefore, be always attentive to the preaching of the Gospel, so when that mystery is opened it may not go over your heads but rather for you to catch it, for a blessing. We have a promise for Christianity, of a manifestation of God in a Great Tent-Cathedral; all that will be worked out-the physical part, by the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, the believers in Christ. And in the wooden small room, which was shown to the Rev. William Branham, will be that Name, which was shown to him and he was looking for it after he had that dream or vision. The mystery of the Seven Thunders will be opened to give faith to be changed and brought with Christ to the Wedding Supper of the Lamb. They are the Seven Thunders of Revelation 10, the Voice of Christ speaking consecutively to His Church and in His Church, revealing the mystery of His Second Coming with a New Name. It is a great mystery. The First Coming of Christ was a great mystery and the Second Coming of Christ is even a greater mystery. Therefore, that's the mystery of which Christ said that even the Angels knew not when would be the day and time; but it will be revealed to the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ in this end time, and the Name, consequently, also. Therefore, onward, working in the Work of Christ, receiving His Word and working in His Work, because there are things, promises to be fulfilled, to be materialized and they will be materialized by the Holy Spirit through the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is important that, as soon as possible, all who are lacking to come to the Feet of Christ to join the Church of the Lord, may come as soon as possible, before the door of mercy is shut. Because when it is shut: We already have the parable of the ten virgins, that at midnight there was a cry: "Behold the Bridegroom cometh, go ye out to meet him." That's the message of Rev. William Branham forerunning the Second Coming of Christ, preparing the people to come out to meet the Bridegroom, so that they be waiting for the Coming of the Lord. And all of them woke up: there was a spiritual awakening, a revival in the midst of Christianity, and the wise virgins took oil in their lamps and the foolish took no oil in their lamps: they did not receive the Holy Ghost: and when they awoke they were without oil in their lamps, and they asked the wise virgins to give them oil for their lamps, and the wise say to them: "Go and buy so that there is enough for us and you." And while they went to buy, to seek the Holy Spirit, to ask for the Holy Spirit, the Bridegroom came, that is: the Lord came at His coming. And they that were ready went in with Him to the Wedding, and the door was shut. When the door is shut there is no more opportunity for someone else to enter in. He that entered: entered in, and those who remained outside: were left outside; and they are left in the great tribulation. Then came also the foolish saying, knocking on the door and saying: "Lord, Lord, open to us." They were believers, they were Christians, but they did not have the Holy Spirit; and it doesn’t say that they got it either. The Lord says to them: "I know not where you are from, I know you not." They were thrown into the outer darkness, where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth, in other words, they were thrown into the great tribulation. And the wise, which came with Him to the Wedding, they went to the Wedding Supper of the Lamb. When the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ is brought by Christ to the Wedding Supper of the Lamb, things are going to get very tough on this planet Earth. God's judgment will fall: earthquakes in different places in a larger, higher scales and more frequent, in different nations also seaquakes, tsunamis also; the sun will get hotter and many areas will be burned by the sun, and so on; volcanic lava will also begin to spread on Earth, and some areas will be covered with volcanic lava, volcanic ash and lava. Malachi, chapter 4, speaks to us about this day coming, burning as an oven. Therefore, it is important to be inside the Mystical Body of Christ, as soon as possible; because thereafter what's to come, no one can bear. Life will be very difficult on this planet Earth when the Lord takes His Church away. "WHERE IS THE NAME OF GOD IS, THERE SHALL BE THE BLESSING." We have already seen how the blessing has been in the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, because the Name of God is in the Lord Jesus Christ, and He is in the midst of His Church. Therefore, notice where the blessing it is under the New Covenant: it is in Christ, and Christ is in His Church to bless everyone who receives Him as only and sufficient Savior. If there is someone who has not yet received Christ as Savior, you can do at this moment and we will be praying for you. And those who are present and those in other nations, who have not received Christ, they can do it right now. And children ten years and older can also come to the Feet of Christ, so that Christ may receive them in His Kingdom. Let's wait for a few minutes as they come to the Feet of Christ, those who have not done it yet. In different countries people can also come, you can continue coming to the Feet of Christ, so that you may be included in the prayer that we will be doing for those who are receiving Christ right now in different nations. The most important thing for humans is eternal Life, and this Life is in Jesus Christ. First John, chapter 5, says, verses 10 to 13: “God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who hath the Son has life: he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.” In other words, whoever does not have the Son does not have eternal Life; what you have is a temporary life, and one does not know when it will end; and when it is finished, if you did not obtain eternal Life by receiving Christ, you no longer have an opportunity to receive eternal Life; you wasted your time here on Earth. One should not live on Earth to waste time, but to use it to receive eternal Life through Jesus Christ our Savior. We will stand up to pray for the people who are coming to the Feet of Christ in different nations. With our hands raised to Christ, to Heaven, our eyes closed in all locations: Heavenly Father, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ I come to You bringing all these people who are receiving Christ as only and sufficient Savior. I pray You receive them in Your Kingdom and give them salvation and eternal Life. In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen. Now, repeat after me this prayer those who have come to the Feet of Christ at this time: Lord Jesus Christ, I heard the preaching of Your Gospel and Your faith was born in my heart. I believe in You with all my heart, I believe in Your Name as the only Name under Heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. I believe in Your first Coming and believe in Your death on the Cross of Calvary as the Sacrifice of Atonement for our sins. I acknowledge that I am a sinner and need a Savior. I bear public witness of my faith in You and Your faith in me, and I receive You as my only and sufficient Savior. I beg You to forgive my sins and cleanse me with Your Blood from all sin, and baptize me with the Holy Spirit and Fire and produce in me the new birth. I want to live in Your Kingdom, I want to live forever. Make the salvation You purchased for me and for every human being on the Cross of Calvary a reality. You paid the price of our redemption, make it a reality in me. I pray in the Your Eternal Name, Lord Jesus Christ. Amen and amen. With our hands lifted to Christ we all say: THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST HAS CLEANSED ME FROM ALL SIN! THE BLOOD OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST HAS CLEANSED ME FROM ALL SIN! THE BLOOD OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST HAS CLEANSED ME FROM ALL SIN! AMEN. Christ has received you in His Kingdom, has forgiven your sins and with His Blood has cleansed you from all sin, for you have received Him as your only and sufficient Savior. You will say to me: "I want to be baptized in water in the Name of the Lord, because He said: 'He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved.' (Mark, chapter 16, verses 15 to 16). When can I be baptized? "It’s the question from the depths of your heart. You may well be baptized. Water baptism does not remove sin, it is the Blood of Christ that cleanses us from all sin, but water baptism is a commandment of the Lord Jesus Christ in which we identify with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection. When a person receives Christ as Savior, he dies to the world, and when the minister immerses him in the baptismal waters, typologically he is being buried, and when he rises him from the waters of baptism, he is being resurrected to a new life, unto eternal Life. Therefore, you can be baptized, and may Christ baptize you with the Holy Spirit and Fire and produce in you the new birth. And we will continue to see each other forever in the Kingdom of Christ our Savior. I leave the Rev. Jose Benjamin Perez to let you know what to do, and every minister in every country so that you know what to do to be baptized in water in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ those who have received Christ as Savior at this time. May God bless and keep you, and continue having a happy afternoon filled with the blessings of Christ our Savior. With us the Rev. Jose Benjamin Perez and in each country the minister concerned to let you know what to do to be baptized in water in the Name of the Lord, those who have received Christ as Savior at this time. May God bless and keep you all. "WHERE THE NAME OF GOD IS, THERE SHALL BE THE BLESSING."
