Good morning, beloved friends and brethren present, and those connected through the Amazon Satellite or internet in different nations. It is a great privilege for me to be with you on this occasion, here in Washington, to share some moments of fellowship with you around the Word of God and His program pertaining to this end time.
Congratulations to Reverend Gian del Corto, who is celebrating his birthday these days; He is the Coordinator of the Global Embassy of Activists for Peace in Brazil. Congratulations Gian, and greetings to your wife in Brazil. And greetings to Yubelly Quiñonez, wife of Ariel Cerrud, Coordinator in Panama. May God bless you, Yubelly, and may He use you greatly in the Divine program pertaining to this end time.
Warm greetings to Missionary Miguel Bermudez Martin and his wife Ruth as well, and everyone working with Him in the Divine program; Miguel is the International Coordinator.
Greetings also to Jose Benjamin Perez, the minister in Puerto Rico, who is connected to this broadcast with the Church of Puerto Rico.
On this occasion we have the subject “THE SON OF MAN,” from the four titles of Son that Jesus, the Messiah, the Anointed One, the Christ, has. On Friday we will have a summary of the four titles of Son, and next Sunday we will talk about the subject “King of kings and Lord of lords.”
We will be in Puerto Rico next Sunday, and Saturday as well, to discuss these subjects which are current subjects in the Divine Program pertaining to the end time.
Now let us look in our Bibles, in Saint Matthew chapter 16, verses 26 and on. Let’s read from verse 24... chapter 16, verses 24 to 28 of Saint Matthew, where it says:
“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? (Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?)
For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.
Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.”
May God bless our souls with His Word and allow us to understand It. Our subject is: “THE SON OF MAN.”
Throughout the Scripture, we have seen that Christ has different titles as Son. He has the title of “Son of God”, He has the title of “Son of Abraham”, He has the title of “Son of David”, and He has the title of “Son of Man.”
As the Son of Abraham, He is the heir to all the land, all the territory that God promised Abraham: the entire territory of the Land of Canaan, the Promised Land. That is why the Messiah is a descendant of Abraham, to become the Heir of what was promised to Abraham, which God would give Him as inheritance.
Remember that God can give everything, or a part of a territory, or the entire planet Earth, to whoever He desires. The Scripture says: “Mine is the Earth, the world, and the fullness thereof, and they that dwell therein.” [Psalms 24:1.] In other words, everything belongs to God, and therefore, to whoever He wants… He can grant it to whoever He wants, but the person must be an heir.
We also have… that is the Royal granting; we also find the Lord as the Son of David. Each title of Son has its inheritance. As Son of David, Christ is the heir to the Throne and Kingdom of David. Remember that when the Angel Gabriel appeared to the Virgin Mary in Saint Luke chapter 1, verses 26 and on, it says:
“And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,
To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.
And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
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 are the words of the Angel or Archangel Gabriel to the Virgin Mary about the child who would be born through her, through the work and grace of the Holy Spirit. The first—and only—woman in the world who has given birth to a child without the intervention of relations with a man, but through the Work of the Holy Spirit, which brings forth sons and daughters of God.
That was the way in which Adam and Eve should have brought forth children in the time of Eden, but that way was altered and that is why we have come with a temporary life to live for a short time and confirm our place in eternal Life, receiving Christ as our Savior so that He may give us Eternal Life and thus we may become descendants of God through Christ, our elder Brother, the Firstborn among all His bretheren.
Here we have seen the promise that Christ, the Messiah, is the Heir to the Throne and Kingdom of David. Therefore, God will give the Kingdom and Throne of David to the Messiah, the Prince, to the Prince of Peace, the only One who can bring everlasting peace to Israel; there lies the secret of peace for Israel and for all of humanity.
As the Son of David, we have seen the inheritance that belongs to the Lord, the Messiah. Then we also have the title of “Son of God.” With the title “Son of God”, He is the Heir to the Heavens and Earth; that is why when He died and resurrected, that was the fulfillment of what He said in Saint Matthew chapter 26, verse 64 (so that we don’t have to read a lot): “Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said...” Let us read verse 63 as well:
“But Jesus held his peace, And the high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God.
Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.”
Christ knew that He would sit on the Throne of God, which means to sit at the right Hand of God. And whoever is on the throne is the one who has the power of the kingdom; therefore, He is the Heir of the Heavens and Earth, He is the King of the Heavens and Earth. That is why Christ is above all the heavenly hosts; all the heavenly hosts are subjected to Him.
As the Son of God, He has been in the midst of His Church in Holy Spirit from age to age. He is the Angel of the Covenant, and the Angel of the Covenant is God’s heavenly Body, God’s theophanic Body, the Holy Spirit. Remember that a spirit is a body from another dimension.
As the Son of God in the stages of the Church (in other words, in the dispensation of grace), He has been manifesting Himself as the Son of God in Christianity since the day of Pentecost.
Then we have the title of “Son of Man”. That is the title of a prophet. Whenever the Son of Man is manifested, it will always be a prophet. That is why when God speaks to Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, all of them, He can say to them: “Son of Man, listen!” “Son of Man, speak!” “Son of Man, eat this book.” Because Son of Man is the title of a Prophet. Always keep this in mind so that when God allows us to fully understand, we may know what the promise of the coming of the Son of Man refers to.
Christ said that the Son of Man comes with His Angels. Saint Matthew chapter 24, verses 30 to 31:
“And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
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.”
There, the elect are one hundred forty-four thousand Hebrews: twelve thousand from each tribe, which appear in Revelation chapter 7, verse 1 and on, and in Revelation chapter 14, verse 1 and on. They are the elect of God from the Hebrew people, which will be called at this end time, in and under that manifestation of the Son of Man.
That is why the manifestation of the Angels of the Son of Man is promised for the Last Day; they are the ministries of the Two Olive Trees, the ministries of Moses and Elijah of Revelation chapter 11, verses 1 to 14, which also appear in Zechariah chapter 4, verses 11 to 14 as the Two Olive Trees that stand before the presence of the Lord, which are the ministries of Moses and Elijah of Revelation chapter 11, verse 1 to 11.
Those are the Two Olive Trees and the two Candlesticks that stand before the presence of God. They are the symbols that have to do with this end time, and with the final manifestation of God among His Church and among the Hebrew people.
As the Son of Man, what does He inherit? What is the inheritance? What is inherited? We are interested in knowing because Saint Paul says in Romans chapter 8, verses 14 and on, that we are heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ Jesus, our Lord; therefore, we want to know what is the inheritance to which we are heirs to as children of God, and what is the inheritance to which we are joint-heirs with Christ, because Christ as the Son of God is the Heir to all things, but the believers in Christ are joint-heirs with Christ to what? To all things as well.
That is why Revelation chapter 1, and also in chapter 5 and in chapter 20, they are referred to as kings, priests… and also in First Corinthians chapter 2, chapter… let me give you the exact Scripture of First Corinthians. It is important that we know what God has given us. It is important that we know what our inheritance is. First Corinthians chapter 6 says… verses 2 and on:
“Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?”
See? The believers in Christ, with Christ, who is the Supreme Judge, whom God has appointed as Judge of the living and the dead… He is the Supreme Judge of the Divine Supreme Court, and the believers in Christ belong to that Divine Supreme Court, as judges, because they will judge the world and the angels as well.
In other words, all the believers in Christ belong to the Judicial Power of the Kingdom of God (as judges), they are members of the Judicial Power, that is why they will be able to judge. Someone who is not a judge cannot judge; they cannot judge the world, nor can they judge the angels. And Christ is the President-Judge of the heavenly Court, the One whom God has appointed as the Judge of the living and the dead.
Since He is the Son of Man, God has made Him Judge. In chapter 5 of Saint John, it tells us that since He is the Son of Man... Let us look it up in order to clarify it for you. Chapter 5, verse 27 of Saint John says:
“And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.”
It also tell us that the Father judges no one, but that He has given the Son that position because He is the Son of Man.
How will God judge humanity? Through Christ, who is the Supreme Judge appointed by God to judge the living and the dead, which is why He will turn from Lamb into a Lion, from a High Priest to a Judge, in order to carry out that Work.
That is why Psalms 2... let us see what it says… Psalms chapter 2, verses 6 and on says:
“Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.”
It says here that God will give the nations, and the uttermost parts of the Earth. This is because as the Son of Man, Christ is the Heir to the planet Earth, with everything it contains: with all the nations, all the human beings, all the animals; with everything on planet Earth.
And it says: “Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance...”
Remember that Adam lost the Inheritance and that is why the Title Deed, the Book sealed with Seven Seals (which is the Title Deed of the Divine Inheritance), returned to God’s right Hand, and in Revelation chapter 5 we find that it is at God’s right Hand and it is reclaimed by Christ as the Lion. He takes the Book, opens it in Heaven (in Revelation chapter 6 and on), and then in Revelation chapter 10 He brings it open to Earth and gives it to a man. Christ—the Mighty Angel who descends from Heaven crying out as when a lion roars, speaking as a lion (not as a Lamb but as a Lion, and therefore as a Judge)—gives it to a man represented in John the apostle, who represents the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ and all the messengers that the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ would have.
Therefore, by John receiving that open little Book and eating it, since the Word comes to the prophets, there will be a prophet on Earth who will receive and eat that Title Deed. And then in Revelation, around chapter 10, it says: “Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues...” And then in Revelation 11 the prophetic ministry begins to prophesy the things that will take place during the great tribulation.
And there we have that prophetic ministry of the Two Olive Trees being manifested for the time of the great tribulation, bringing the Word, revealing the Divine judgments that will come upon the planet Earth.
“Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance.”
Remember that whoever has a title deed to a property is the legal owner of that property, and the Title Deed not only of the planet Earth but of all Creation is the Book sealed with Seven Seals. It is the Title Deed of eternal Life, where the names of all the sons and daughters of God are written; they are in the part, in the section of the Lamb’s Book of Life.
Those are the sheep of the Father, which God would give to Christ, the Good Shepherd, to seek them, bring them to the Fold and give them eternal Life. That is why He called on us to preach the Gospel to every creature: “…And He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, but he that believeth not shall be damned.” [Mark 16:15-16.]
Who will believe? The sheep that the Father gives to Christ to seek them and give eternal Life to them. That is why Christ said: “I have come to seek and save that which was lost.” In other words, He came to seek me, and whom else? Each one of you as well.
Remember that you have come to Christ because God has brought you. The human being doesn’t seek God; it is God who seeks the human being. “I have come to seek and save that which was lost.” See? That is why Christ came. And that is why He says: “My sheep hear my voice, and they follow me, and I know them. And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.” [John 10:27-30.] In other words, the person who is written in Heaven, in the Lamb’s Book of Life cannot become lost. Those are the sons and daughters of God, whom God thought of before the foundation of the world.
Sometimes, when someone tells us: “I was thinking about you on this day,” we say: “How good that someone thinks about me.” Imagine how much better it is to know that God thought about each one of us eternally! He thought… we were in the Divine Thought.
It is like, humanly speaking, when a person, a young man thinks and says: “I wish to have children, a boy and a girl,” which is usually what they want: the pair. Then when they get married (doing things Biblically) they get married and they have the pair they wanted. The parents can say to them: “We had thought of having a pair (a boy and a girl), and you are it, you are the ones we had thought of.” Those children feel happy, and they say: “Mom and dad thought of me, they thought about bringing me to Earth. Thank God they thought of me!”
And thank God that God thought of us, to bring us into existence, into life, so that while being on this Earth we can make contact with eternal Life and confirm our place in eternal Life with Christ, to live with Christ in His Kingdom, for how long? For all of eternity.
Remember that an elect cannot get lost, he was eternally in God’s mind. And when Christ was here on Earth, we were with Him.
And now, how can you explain this? How can you understand it? If you have an avocado or a mango tree, you can say: “I had this avocado or mango tree in my hand with all the avocados or mangos it now has.” They may tell you: “You are crazy.” But how did you have that fruit? While it was in the seed. The potential was in the seed; and that seed contained the roots and the tree with its branches and its fruit (which are the children: the fruit).
And Christ is the Tree of Life. We were with Christ, the Tree of Life; and therefore we have appeared in the relevant time. Where? Manifested in the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Remember that Christ said: “I am the vine, ye are the branches.” [Saint John 15:5.]
In other words, we belong to Christ, we are part of Christ. When He was here on Earth, we were in Him, as attributes who would later be manifested in the form of people. Just as the tree had its fruits in the seed, Christ is the Seed, the Seed of God through which all the sons and daughters of God would come in and with eternal Life. We don’t remember anything, but we do know that we were in Him.
Notice, the body of the human being was in the father, and before it was in the father it was in the grandfather, and before it was in the grandfather, it was in the great-grandfather.
In Hebrews chapter 7, speaking of Levi, the Apostle Paul says that when Abraham tithed to God, Levi (whom was in Abraham’s loins) was also tithing. In other words, life emerges there, in the fourth generation before a person. Levi was already in Abraham’s loins. That’s what the Bible tells us, speaking through Saint Paul. And in this way it came descending from the loins of Abraham to the loins of Isaac, from the loins of Isaac to the loins of Jacob, and from the loins of Jacob to the manifestation, the birth of Levi.
And we were eternally in God; we have come from eternity, and we have come to confirm our place with Christ in eternal Life. This planet is where we confirm our place in eternal Life.
Now, the Scripture also tells us: “No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him.” [Saint John 6:44.] If the Father doesn’t bring him, He can’t come.
“My sheep hear my voice and they follow me.” The sheep that the Father gave to Christ are the people written in Heaven, in the Lamb’s Book of Life. And when they come to understand who they are, they thank God for the blessing and privilege of being a daughter or a son of God. They are the sons and daughters of God, and therefore, they are the Family of God. And God is the King of the Heavens and Earth, and His children are kings, priests and judges; they are Royalty, members of the heavenly Royalty.
Remember that those who belong to royalty are descendants of the king and queen. And those are the believers in Christ; that is why the Church is the Queen, and Christ is the King, and their children are princes and princesses. It is important that we know what we are before the presence of God. You are not just anyone; you are Royalty.
As the Son of Man, Christ tells us something very important in Romans chapter 4, verses 12 to 13… verse 13 says:
“For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.”
Abraham’s seed, Christ, is Heir to what? The entire world. Therefore, we are joint-heirs with Christ of the entire world as well. “For it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the Kingdom,” Christ said. [Saint Luke 12:32.] “The meek shall inherit the Earth.” [Saint Matthew 5:5.]
All these blessings are promised for the believers in Christ as joint-heirs of God, joint-heirs with Christ, joint-heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ our Lord.
As the Son of Man, we saw that He is the Heir to the entire world. That is why in Isaiah chapter 9… chapter 9 verses 6 to 7, it says:
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.”
The Kingdom of the Messiah will cover these titles of Son of Man. As the Son of David, He will reign over Israel; He will sit upon the Throne of David, and that is how the restoration of the Kingdom of David will come. Jerusalem will be the capital of that Kingdom, and He will also rule, reign over all the nations from there, and peace will come forth from Jerusalem, the City of Peace, the City of God.
The Kingdom of the Messiah—which all the prophets have spoken about—is the only hope of a Government that brings everlasting peace for the human family. That is why the second coming of Christ is the only hope there is for humanity; there is no other hope for the human being.
It is promised that the Son of Man will come; He will be revealed and manifested in this end time. He was shown on Mount Transfiguration, in chapter 17 of Saint Matthew; He was transfigured before Peter, James, and John, and Moses and Elijah appeared at Jesus’ sides, who are the Angels of the Son of Man sent to call and gather one hundred and forty-four thousand Hebrews. Those are the ministries of Moses and Elijah being repeated at the Last Day to call and gather one hundred forty-four thousand Hebrews. They are not literally Moses and Elijah, but their ministries are being repeated.
Christ, the Son of Man, the Heir of the Earth, knows what He will do and how He will establish His Kingdom on Earth and bring peace and happiness to the human being.
The greatest event promised for this end time is the promise of the coming of the Son of Man, keeping in mind that it is the title of a prophet. This is the end time, and therefore, it is the time for the coming, for the manifestation of the Son of Man, for God’s manifestation at the Last Day, where He will fulfill the promises that He has made to His Church.
Therefore, let us be prepared with our lives fixed before God, having received Christ as our Savior. And if someone has not received Him yet, it is important that you receive Him as soon as possible, because we are already in the end time, where at any moment Christ will complete His Church, and then the door will be closed, as Christ taught in the parable of the ten virgins: the Husband came, and the ones that were prepared entered with Him to the Marriage, and then the door was shut.
Also…This is in Saint Matthew 25, chapter 25. And in Saint Luke chapter 13, verses 21 to 27 it also tells us that when the master of the house is risen up and has shut the door… in other words, the door will be shut; the door to the Dispensation of Grace will close at any time. When Christ completes His Church, His Work as the High Priest in Heaven will have ended, and He will become the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, King of kings and Lord of lords, to carry out His Reclaiming Work, taking the Title Deed and reclaiming everything He has redeemed with His precious Blood. Let us be prepared, because we are at the end time.
A great manifestation will come from God, just as it happened in the days of Jesus, in the days of the apostles, and in the days of Reverend William Branham. In Reverend William Branham there was a manifestation of the Son of Man, in other words, of Christ manifested in a prophet, working as He did two thousand years ago. And Reverend William Branham says that it will be repeated, but when that happens, humanity will no longer have an opportunity. That will be the Third Pull, which Reverend William Branham spoke about, according to what the Angel told him about the Third Pull, and he showed him a Great Tent-Cathedral.
In other words, through the fulfillment of that Vision we will be able to see a great manifestation of the Son of Man, for that is the promise for the believers in Christ for the Last Day: the coming or manifestation of the Son of Man.
Christ has been with His Church at all times; and He has been veiling and revealing Himself through different messengers of God. He was in His Church, among the Gentiles, in the first age, in and with Saint Paul; veiled in Saint Paul and revealed through Saint Paul. And in this same way, He veiled and revealed Himself through each age of the Church in and through the messenger of each age. These are the manifestations of Christ in the midst of His Church, where He has been since the day of Pentecost.
Christ said: “I will be with you all the days, even unto the end of the world.” (Saint Matthew chapter 28, verse 20.) And Saint Matthew chapter 18, verse 20 says: “Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them; I will be there.” And He takes different instruments and messengers, and manifested in them and through them, He speaks to His people, He calls and gathers His elect from each age, and this is how He has been forming His Church from age to age, gathering the elect of His Church.
And in this end time, He will complete His Work, He will complete the number of the elect. Just as the father of a household and his wife say: “We stop here,” and they have no more children, God will complete His Church, His sons and daughters. He will complete His Royalty, and then He will carry out the other things He must carry out, such as the resurrection of the dead believers in Christ in glorified bodies, and the transformation of those of us who are alive, so that everyone can be like Jesus Christ with glorified and young bodies resembling 18 to 21 years of age throughout eternity.
And if someone doesn’t appreciate that, I certainly do. And if someone doesn’t need that, I certainly do; because the body I have is temporary, and because the human being has four rays of light and they start to dim, but in the new body they don’t dim. Since the new body will be eternal and glorified, it will remain alive and young throughout eternity. And that is the body that God predestined, chose for you and I to have for all of eternity. Therefore, the body we have is temporary, it has its problems because it is not a perfect body; this is in the permissible Will of God while we receive the new one. The new one is the eternal body that God designed, predestined for all of us, like that of the Lord Jesus Christ; it is interdimensional.
Therefore, that blessing for Christ’s believers is the greatest one of all times, and there is a feast awaiting the guests: “Blessed are they that are called unto the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.” [Revelation 19:9.] I have been called, and I accepted the invitation, and whom else? Each one of you, too.
Therefore, a great feast is awaiting us in Heaven, the greatest feast to ever take place in Heaven in the House of the Heavenly Father, which is the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, the Marriage Reception of Christ with His Church. And they are waiting for us there. Therefore, let us be prepared and always working in the Work of the Lord.
We are at the time of the manifestation of the Son of Man. We saw it in Jesus, we saw it in Reverend William Branham, and it will happen again at this end time.
That is why under that manifestation we saw that the Son of Man, Christ, had authority over nature and all things. We also saw that manifestation in Reverend William Branham, and it will be seen again according to Revelation chapter 11. Therefore, let us be prepared, because there are good news for the believers in Christ, good tidings of peace and happiness.
We are very close to the fulfillment of all these promises. We have been waiting for about two thousand years for the second coming of Christ, the coming of the Son of Man, and now we have been granted to live in the end time. In other words, we are two thousand years closer than what the apostles of the Lord Jesus Christ were.
“THE SON OF MAN.” The Heir to the planet Earth along with everything it contains, and we are joint-heirs with Him.
If there is anyone who has not yet received Christ as his Savior, you may do so now and we will be praying for you so that Christ may receive you in His Kingdom, forgive you and cleanse you from all sin with His Blood, and you be baptized in water in His Name; and may Christ baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire, and produce the new birth in you.
Let us give an opportunity to those who have not yet accepted Christ as their Savior to come to the front, so that Christ may receive you in His Kingdom and place you in His Kingdom with eternal Life. And those who are in other countries or nations can also come to Feet of Christ, our Savior, so that Christ receives them in His Kingdom. And children ten years of age and older can also come to the Feet of Christ so that Christ receives them in His Kingdom.
One thing is most important in life: eternal Life. There is nothing more important than eternal Life. Without eternal Life, people do not have a future in the Kingdom of God, and by experiencing what life is, although it is temporary, all of us see that it is very important and good; imagine how much greater eternal Life is.
Living on this Earth with mortal bodies gives us the opportunity to make contact with Christ so that He may give us eternal Life, place us with Him in His Kingdom, and therefore, place us in eternal Life.
In other countries you may also continue coming to the Feet of Christ our Savior. Let us stand up to pray for the people who have come to the Feet of Christ our Savior.
There is a glorious future for the human being who receives Christ as His Savior. Remember that the only One who has the exclusivity of eternal Life is Jesus Christ, our Savior. No one else has the exclusivity of eternal Life; Christ is the only One who has it. That is why He said: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (Saint John chapter 14, verse 6.) And He was aware of what He was saying.
Christ is our only hope, our only hope of eternal Life. Without Christ, there is no eternal Life.
When a person has Christ, while he rests (before falling asleep), he thinks about what it will be like to awake in Paradise. He sleeps peacefully, knowing that if he dies, he goes to Paradise, which is the Sixth Dimension, the Dimension of the angels in heavenly bodies, and in the resurrection he will return to Earth to receive the resurrection in a glorified and eternal body. It is as simple as that. That is why we must secure our eternal future with Christ in His eternal Kingdom. He is the only one who can secure our eternal future.
Let us pray now for the people who have come to the Feet of Christ. With our eyes closed and our hands raised to Heaven:
Heavenly Father, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I come to You with all these people present and in other countries who are receiving Christ as their only and sufficient Savior. Receive them in Your Kingdom, I pray, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
And now, repeat this prayer after me, which we will be making for each person who is receiving Christ as their Savior:
Lord Jesus Christ, I heard the preaching of Your Gospel and Your faith was born in my soul, in my heart.
I believe in You with all my soul. I believe in Your first coming and I believe in Your Name as the only Name under Heaven, given unto men, whereby we must be saved. I believe in Your death on Calvary’s cross as the atoning Sacrifice for our sins.
I acknowledge that I am a sinner and that I need a Savior, a Redeemer. I give public testimony of my faith in You and of Your faith in me, and I receive You as my only and sufficient Savior. I beg You to forgive my sins, and may You cleanse me from all sin with Your Blood and baptize me with the Holy Spirit and fire after I am baptized in water in Your Name; and may You produce in me the new birth.
I want to be born in Your Kingdom, I want to live eternally. Save me, Lord. Make the salvation You purchased for me on Calvary’s cross a reality. I pray in Your eternal and glorious Name, Lord Jesus Christ. Amen and amen.
Now, you may tell me: “When can you baptize me? Because Christ said: ‘He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.’”
We all want to be saved; therefore, we do what Christ commanded: “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved.”
The Gospel is preached so that the faith of Christ be born in the soul of the person and he may believe and give public testimony, receiving Him as his Savior, and he be baptized in water in the Name of the Lord and Christ baptizes him with the Holy Spirit and fire and produces the new birth in the person. He is born in the Kingdom of Christ, in the Kingdom of God, because whoever is not born again, Christ said: “He cannot enter into the Kingdom of Christ.” Christ said this to Nicodemus in Saint John chapter 3, verse 1 to 6.
Therefore, you may be baptized and may Christ baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire and produce the new birth in You.
Water baptism does not take away sins, it is the Blood of Christ that cleanses us from all sin; but water baptism is a commandment of Christ our Savior.
Even when John the Baptist preached and baptized in the Jordan River, Christ went to John to be baptized by him, and John tells Jesus: “I have need to be baptized by You, and You come to me that I may baptize You?” Jesus says to him: “For thus it becometh us to fulfill all righteousness.” And then he baptized Him. And when Jesus rose out of the baptismal waters, the Holy Spirit descended upon Jesus like a dove and rested upon Jesus.
And now, every person… just like Christ, every person who hears and believes the Gospel of Christ is also baptized in water in the Name of the Lord. Remember that this is how we identify with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection. This is the symbolism, the typology of water baptism in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ; we identify ourselves with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection.
May Christ baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire and produce in you the new birth, and we will continue seeing each other for all of eternity in the Kingdom of Christ our Savior.
Therefore, those of you who have received Christ as your Savior at this time, both those present and in other nations: you may indeed be baptized.
May God bless you, and we will continue seeing each other for all of eternity in the glorious Kingdom of Christ our Savior.
I leave Reverend Joel here, and in every country and congregation I leave each minister to tell you what you must do to be baptized in water in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
May God bless you and keep you all.
