Good evening, beloved friends and brethren present, and also those who are in other nations; and warm greetings to Missionary Miguel Bermudez Marin, who was speaking to you a few minutes ago; and from where he is at and to where he is at, I want to extend my greetings to the faithful Missionary, Dr. Miguel Bermudez Marin.
May God bless you, Miguel, and give you much health and much life so you may be alive for the transformation and also for the fulfillment of the Vision of the Tent. And may God bless you all, ministers gathered there with him, and to all the congregation gathered there with him where he is at, and to all the ministers in different nations and their congregations. May the blessings of Christ, the Angel of the Covenant, be upon each one of you and also upon me as well. In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen. And may He use us greatly in this end time.
Now, I read in First of Kings, chapter 19, verse 8 and on… Verse 8 and on, says, of First of Kings, chapter 19, speaking about the prophet Elijah says:
“And he arose, and did eat and drink, and went in the strength of that meat forty days and forty nights unto Horeb the mount of God.
And he came thither unto a cave, and lodged there; and, behold, the word of the Lord came to him, and he said unto him, What doest thou here, Elijah?
And he said, I have been very jealous for the Lord God of hosts: for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.
And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord. And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake:
And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.
And it was so, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood in the entering in of the cave. And, behold, there came a voice unto him, and said, What doest thou here, Elijah?
And he said, I have been very jealous for the Lord God of hosts: because the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.
And the Lord said unto him, Go, return on thy way to the wilderness of Damascus: and when thou comest, anoint Hazael to be king over Syria:
And Jehu the son of Nimshi shalt thou anoint to be king over Israel: and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abelmeholah shalt thou anoint to be prophet in thy room.
And it shall come to pass, that him that escapeth the sword of Hazael shall Jehu slay: and him that escapeth from the sword of Jehu shall Elisha slay.
Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.”
In tonight’s introduction, of the topic of Bible school, the topic of the Bible study will be: “ELIJAH ON THE MOUNT OF GOD”; for which we will have a short introduction for next Sunday’s Bible school topic, God willing.
Today Friday, November 4th, we will have the introduction tonight; and after Sunday, November 6th or next Sunday, November 6th, will be the Bible school, where the topic will be: “ELIJAH ON THE MOUNT OF GOD.”
Mount Sinai in the time of Moses, in the Exodus, it was the Mount of God where the Angel of the Covenant was and where God appeared unto Moses in a bush that burned and was not consumed. God was there in the Angel, in His Angel, in the Angel of the Covenant, to speak to the instrument He had, through whom He would manifest Himself and deliver the Hebrew people from the bondage in Egypt.
Therefore, that was the mount where God would take them to give the Ten Commandments; manifest Himself, reveal Himself to Israel on that mount, of which it is said in Hebrews, chapter 12, verse 18 and on, Paul speaking says:
“For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest,
And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard intreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more:
(For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart:
And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:)
But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,
To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,
And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven:
Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.
And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
For our God is a consuming fire.”
Just as Moses with the Hebrew people approached the Mount of God, Mount Sinai or Mount Horeb, now under the New Covenant, Christianity, the believers in Christ, have approached the Mount of God since the Day of Pentecost, which in the New Testament is the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, which has been going through the different stages. And when it goes through the stage of sanctification on the days of Luther, in that stage, that is the stage that the prophet Elijah was there on Mount Sinai was Prophet Elijah on the Mount of God.
Now see, we can see the prophet Moses with the people on Mount Sinai, we can see the prophet Elijah (now in this passage we read) with the people, the ten tribes, or where God was going to speak to him, and we see him fleeing when God appears unto him and says: “What doest thou here, Elijah?” [First of Kings 19:9]
He says: “I have been very jealous for the Lord God: for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant.” And he begins to explain why he fled. And he was in the best place: on the Mount of God, Mount Sinai or Mount Horeb.
When God passes before him, the effects of a “strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind” can be seen and heard (that was the age or the time of Luther, the Lutheran Age). And after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake (that is the Wesleyan stage).
And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire (that is the Pentecostal stage in Christianity)...”
Those are stages that later on Mount Zion or Mount of God of the New Testament, on the Mount of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, those stages would be materialized; because they reflected the stages that would be materialized on the Mount of God of the New Covenant, of the New Testament.
But then comes a…:
“...and after the fire a still small voice.”
That is in the Age of Cornerstone the Voice of God speaking with a Still Small Voice, speaking a still soft Message, a soft Message for the believers. And see [verse 13]:
“And it was so, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood in the entering in of the cave. And, behold, there came a voice unto him, and said, What doest thou here, Elijah?
And he said, I have been very jealous for the Lord God of hosts: because the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.”
In other words he was fleeing because they wanted to take away his life, and he fled towards the Mount of God, where he saw the strong wind, an earthquake and a fire; three things, each one in its moment; but God was not in the strong wind, nor in the fire - nor in the earthquake, nor in the fire. And then he saw and heard a small still voice, and God was there. And when he heard the still small voice, the Word of God came unto Elijah, and asks him: “What doest thou here, Elijah?”
That is the same question that will come up: “Why the Lord with the believers in Christ in the Last Day, on the Mount of God, in the Age of Cornerstone?” When the Jews see Christ coming for His Church, they will say: “This is the One we are waiting for.” That will be in the Still Small Voice, in the Age of Cornerstone.
They will see the blessing that will come in the midst of Christianity in the Age of Cornerstone, under the ministry of Elijah, who will be there, and from there the ministry will go over to the Hebrew people.
We saw Elijah in the seventh age, the ministry of Elijah in the Reverend William Branham for the fourth time; and he says he will come for a fifth time for the Jews also. That is the fifth time or fifth manifestation of the ministry of Elijah, that God will not only speak to the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ but also to the Hebrew people; above all the Hebrew people in the fifth manifestation of Elijah or ministry of Elijah. They will see him and ask themselves: “Why has that ministry been with Christianity?”
We already are in the time of the Still Small Voice; therefore, God will be speaking to the people about Israel and about a group of Christians who will be changed and taken with Christ to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.
“ELIJAH ON THE MOUNT OF GOD.”
Now we saw that under the New Covenant the Mount of God is the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ; It is also the spiritual Zion, also the spiritual Jerusalem. Therefore, we already know which is the Mount where Elijah will appear on in his fifth ministry in the Last Day.
And he was in his fourth ministry also on the Mount of God in the stage of Laodicea, in the Pentecostal stage; that is why Reverend William Branham was with that ministry, moving in that seventh age of the gentile Church represented in the Church of Laodicea of Asia Minor.
For this end time, the ministry of Moses and Elijah will move towards the Hebrew people to bring them the prophetic Word, the Word of blessing to the Hebrew people; but first the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ will see them, the fifth ministry of Elijah and then the ministry of Moses, and so on, in the fulfillment of the Vision of the Tent.
There we are going to see more clearly the ministry of Elijah for the fifth time and the ministry of Moses in action. And we are going to hear it thundering with the Seven Thunders of Revelations, chapter 10, the ministry of the Mighty Angel that descends from Heaven.
The literal thunders represent the spiritual Thunders, which is the Voice of God speaking to the people; as He spoke to them on Mount Sinai, and lightning, voices, thunders could be seen, but it was God speaking. The physical part they could see, but they did not fully understand, maybe some, God speaking to them; but Moses did know what God was speaking.
And God was speaking with a thundering Voice to Moses, and the people heard when God was speaking to him. Everyone heard thunders, saw lightning, voices; the mount was full of angels and chariots of fire. It was a very important time in the life of the Hebrew people.
Mount Sinai was full of angels. That is in Deuteronomy. That was when the blessings were being cast. Chapter 33 of Deuteronomy:
“And this is the blessing, wherewith Moses the man of God blessed the children of Israel before his death.
And he said, The Lord came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir unto them; he shined forth from mount Paran, and he came with ten thousands of saints: from his right hand went a fiery law for them.
Yea, he loved the people...”
What does Moses say? “He came with ten thousands of saints.” In other words that there was a big gathering there.
Now let us see for a moment Daniel, chapter 7, verse 9 and on. It says:
“I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.
A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened.”
Here also thousands of thousands serve before God.
The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ under the New Covenant will be with the Prince Messiah in the Judgment for the nations and afterwards for the Final Judgment.
“ELIJAH ON THE MOUNT OF GOD.”
We already saw that the Mount of God under the New Covenant is the Church of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. That is where the ministry of Elijah appeared for the fourth time, just as the ministry of John the Baptist appeared in the people that was under the Old Covenant (Israel), and he came and introduced the Messiah.
And the age or stage of John the Baptist was the seventh stage of the Hebrew Church under the Law, which is the Hebrew people. And then the Prince Messiah in the Age of Cornerstone, because He is the Cornerstone or Capstone, and He is who produces the Age of Cornerstone; just as God produces through each messenger each age, in the formation of a people as the Temple of God, and consequently as Mount of God.
And now it is in the Last Day the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, that has gone through different stages or ages, the spiritual Temple of God. “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?” Therefore, it says: “If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy”. [First of Corinthians 3:16-17]
In other words the persecutions and all these deaths against Christianity, will be judged in the Divine Judgement; and the reward will be given by God, He will give the blessing to the believers that have been martyrs and to all who remain in the Last Day that are in the Mount of God, which is the place where He will place those who are written in Heaven, in the Lamb's Book of Life.
Where do we see the fourth Elijah that came? In the Mount of God in the seventh stage. Then, out of the seventh stage: within the seventh stage and eighth stage, within the seventh age and the Age of Cornerstone.
And where are we going to see Elijah coming first for the fifth time? In the Mount of God, the spiritual Temple of Christ, which is His Church and is the Mount of God under the New Covenant.
That is why it is so important to know these divine promises, to not fail in the Last Day and to be seeing what we must to see in the Divine Program.
“ELIJAH ON THE MOUNT OF GOD.”
“It is the Mount in which and to which we have come,” Paul says in Hebrews, chapter 12, verse 18 to 29. It is there where God will speak as He spoke on Mount Sinai, it is there where Elijah also… Just as Moses was on Mount Sinai, Elijah was also on Mount Sinai, and God spoke to him; and it is on the Mount of God of the New Covenant, the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, where God has been speaking, it is the Mount of God; and consequently, it is where He has been manifesting the ministry of Elijah for the fourth time (in the seventh age), and He will manifest the ministry of Elijah for the fifth time. And from there He will move to the Hebrew people, were the ministry of Elijah will be manifested for the fifth time and then the ministry of Moses.
And what Moses and Elijah will be for the Jews, they will be the mystery of the Seventh Seal for the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.
On Sunday we will continue, God willing. This has only been the introduction to the topic of Sunday’s Bible study in the Bible school: “ELIJAH ON THE MOUNT OF GOD.” We will see with more detail, God willing, about this topic.
I leave with you Missionary Miguel Bermudez Marin there where he is at, and to each minister in the church or congregation where he is at; and in Puerto Rico I leave Reverend Jose Benjamin Perez to continue.
Until next Sunday, God willing, where we will see Elijah in more detail in and for the fifth manifestation of the ministry of Elijah and the ministry of Moses in the Mount of God.
May you all have a good evening. May God bless you greatly, and open the Scriptures to us next Sunday and the understanding to comprehend.
Pray a lot for me also, that I may be well for next Sunday. God has been helping me a lot and will continue helping me; and each and every one of you as well.
Remember that the… May God bless you and keep you; continue having a pleasant evening, filled with the blessings of Christ our Savior.
