Good morning to all present and those that are in different nations.
Today, Mother’s Day, I want to extend my congratulations to all mothers: May God bless you and continue using you greatly in His Work in this end time!
I want to also extend my greetings to doctor Miguel Bermudez Marin and the congregation where he is at today. May God bless you and keep you and always use you greatly in His Kingdom, and to all congregations and churches and ministers that are in different nations.
For today we read in Hebrews, chapter 11, verse 1 to 3:
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
For by it the elders obtained a good report.
Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”
Our subject for the Bible school for today Sunday is: “FAITH BASED ON THE DIVINE PROMISES.” This is the Bible study for today’s Sunday Bible school of Sunday school.
Faith is based, rests, upon the promised Word of God for each time. For example, we have Noah. Noah received the revelation of the Word, and faith was found on that revelation of the Word, the faith to construct the ark where he and his family would be saved. It was the faith in action when he was working on the construction of the ark where they would be saved.
Faith must always be based on the Word of God promised for the time in which one is living in, for the dispensation and age of that corresponding dispensation and where that Word is being fulfilled; because that is the promised Word to be fulfilled from behalf of God in His Program.
That is why there are seven dispensations; for each dispensation there are, let’s say, seven ages; and in each age there is promised Word to be fulfilled. And that is the Work that God carries out in the midst of His people of that dispensation, in each age; fulfill what He has promised to those and with those that believe wholeheartedly, which receive the revelation of that Word; the Word comes to be vivified, comes to be fulfilled in that stage, in that age of each dispensation. And that is having the revelation of God for the time in which one is living in.
There have always been and there are many religions, human interpretations; but when the revelation of God comes to the person and he believes wholeheartedly, the promise for that time becomes a reality in the person; because he is placed with the corresponding group for that age, with which God is dealing with. And for each age of each dispensation, He has a messenger that is the head of the group of that age; and God brings them together with the messenger, because the revelation of God for the people comes through the messenger; it first comes to the messenger and then to the people. It comes from behalf of God through the Spirit of God, the Holy Spirit, the Angel of the Covenant.
And some dispensations have already passed, and we are at the end of the sixth dispensation for the introduction of the seventh dispensation, the Dispensation of the Kingdom, which is about to open very soon; which that dispensation requires an introduction, because a dispensation interlaces with the other one; while one is coming to its end, another one is beginning, another dispensation is being introduced. Thus it is with the ages: an age intertwines with another age. And God is already preparing everything for the introduction of the seventh dispensation, which is the Dispensation of the Kingdom, the Kingdom of God, to be established on this planet Earth.
Therefore, we are in the most glorious time of the Dispensation of Grace, where the Dispensation of Grace will be closed with the resurrection of the dead in Christ and the transformation of those that are alive in Christ, in the Mystical Body of Christ; and then go to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb in Heaven, and be there for a lapse of corresponding time while the Earth goes through a lapse of time of three and a half years of great tribulation, where the ministries of the Two Olive Trees will be manifested on the Earth.
The things that will take place in the great tribulation will be made known by them, like Moses did, he made known the divine judgments that would come upon Egypt in that time. He received the revelation of God of the judgment that would come, and he made it known; and that Word was materialized, because it was the creative Word of God to bring that divine judgment. It was not Moses’ word, but the Word of God, which was spoken of what would take place, and it would take place. That is God speaking through Moses.
Therefore, since in the great tribulation, according to Revelation, chapter 11, the Two Olive Trees will be (which are the ministries of Moses and Elijah speaking, making things known, the judgments that will come), we know it will be like the times of the prophet Elijah and the time of the prophet Moses.
It will be a very difficult time for the human race, because it will be the time of the Feast of the Trumpets, which is for the Jews; and is the time in which the judgment is carried out for all of humanity. That is why it is the day of Malachi, chapter 4, where it tells us: “For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up (will burn them), saith the Lord.” But before that day comes, it says: “I will send you Elijah.”
In other words, we are in a time of dispensational interlacing; therefore, we must be prepared, because before the great tribulation, the Coming of the Lord collects the elect, gives them the faith, the revelation to be transformed and raptured, those who will be alive; and He will bring with Him in His Coming those who have died and will resurrect them in glorified bodies, as it happened in the time of the resurrection of Christ.
We can see that all of this from past times occurred in the Age of the Coming of the Lord, which is the Cornerstone; therefore, it happened in the Age of Cornerstone; because what the messenger is, the age is as well, the Age of Cornerstone for the Coming of the Cornerstone.
And if the resurrection of the saints that had died was there in the Age of Cornerstone, the resurrection of the saints of the New Testament must also be in Age of Cornerstone. That is the Golden Age, the Age of the Coming of the Lord, the most important age of all, with which God crowns His Mystical Body of believers, His Church.
The Age of Laodicea has passed; they closed the door to the Lord.
He, knocking on the door, calls and says: “Whoever opens the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him.” And just as from age to age the door was opened to the Lord by the messenger of each age, here, Revelation, chapter 3, verse 20 to 22, tells us:
“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.
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 that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.”
Someone is going to sit with Christ on His Throne, just as Christ sat with the Father on His heavenly Throne; and Christ promises that someone is going to sit on His earthly Throne, the Throne of David. And who was it that sat on the heavenly Throne with the Father? The messenger of the Age of Cornerstone, Jesus Christ.
Therefore, there must be someone in the end time, in the Age of Cornerstone, that will have that privilege; and he and his group will be blessed, because it must be the corresponding messenger of that age and his group the ones who receive the greatest blessing in the Kingdom of God on the Earth.
“The saints shall judge the world” [First of Corinthians 6:2]. Remember that the saints are members of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. They are priests, they are also judges, and they have a very great position with Christ when the Kingdom of God is established on the Earth.
When it becomes established on the Earth, after the great tribulation, we will see each other in the Kingdom, not of the gentiles, but rather the Kingdom of God that will be established; and we will rule with Him, as it says… Revelation 20, verse 4 and on, says:
“And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.”
And that is just to start with, reigning for a thousand years to start with, in the Kingdom of God which will be established on the Earth. When we are in the Kingdom, we will see the difference there is between the kingdom of the gentiles and the Kingdom of God.
Also, Revelation, chapter 1, verse 4 and on, says:
“John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne;
And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,
And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.”
He made us kings and priests; and this is of the Order of Melchizedek, kings and priests of the Order of Melchizedek.
And Revelation, chapter 5, verse 9 to 10, says:
“And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.”
That is what Christ has done for us: He has redeemed us with His Blood and has made us kings and priests for God. It is a kingdom of kings and priests and judges, because the priests and kings themselves are also judges, judges who will judge; that is why it says that the saints will judge the world. And all of that is very close.
We are so close that no other age was as close as we are; because it is the Age of Cornerstone, the Crown Age, the one that crowns the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ for the adoption of the sons and daughters of God, for the redemption of the body, to have a new, eternal, immortal and glorified body as the one Jesus Christ our Savior has. When we are in that body, we will be invested with the investiture of kings, priests and judges.
We are very, very close; and we can say: “Great is the inheritance that has been given to us.” The Divine Program is all of that. We did nothing, God did. Our part is that, since we have been chosen since before the foundation of the world, we have received the revelation of the Word, God has showed us which are the promises for this time, we have believed them and have been working based on those promises; because when a promise is believed in, one works on the foundation of that promise.
That is why we find that Jesus said: “The Scripture says… Doesn't the Scripture say such thing?”; because He came to fulfill what the Scripture said about Him. The entire Program that He brought was what was promised that God would do in that time: the redemption of the human being, dying as the Sacrifice of Atonement for our sins.
He came to do the will of the Father; and God showed Him every single thing He had to do, the Father showed Him and He repeated it here on Earth. That is why He said: “For what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.” [John 5:19].
Therefore, we see there is a Divine Program that was sealed and is sealed, and is opened in the fulfillment; and God allows the chosen one from each age to see the Divine Program, which they believe, and consequently they have faith. Faith enters into action to carry out the corresponding work in this time, according to what is promised for that time. That is why we see Jesus Christ doing what corresponded to the Divine Program for that time.
Then, throughout the ages, we can see the Church doing what corresponds to each age; and in our time we can see the Church doing what corresponds to this time. That is the Holy Spirit working, giving the revelation; the person believing and marching, working in the Divine Program for our time.
Everything that is promised that God will do in our time, He will do through His Spirit through His Church, through His Church led by the Holy Spirit in the messenger and his group of that age. Everything will be simple; and that will later give place to the introduction of the Millennial Kingdom on Earth.
As the Dispensation of Grace was introduced in the days of Jesus and the apostles, the seventh millennium under the Dispensation of the Kingdom will be introduced the same way.
And we will see each other in the Kingdom; because our faith is based on the divine promises.
“FAITH BASED ON THE DIVINE PROMISES.”
It has been a great privilege for me to be with you on this occasion.
May God bless you and keep you.
Sorry for the hoarseness. In some - in many places they say that it is the hoarseness of the waiter, because the young boy’s voice changes between the age of 13 and 15 and it becomes hoarse; and we are expecting a change.
May God bless you; and continue having a joyful afternoon, filled with the blessings of Christ our Savior.
I leave the corresponding minister in each country. I leave Reverend Jose Benjamin Perez to continue.
God bless you and keep you all.
