Warm greetings to international missionary, Dr. Miguel Bermudez Marin, along with Reverend Jairo Ordoñez, there in the congregation of Maracaibo, Venezuela; and to all the ministers and their congregations; and to Reverend Jose Benjamin Perez Matos and the Church of Cayey, Puerto Rico.
May the blessings of Jesus Christ, the Angel of the Covenant be upon each one of you and upon myself.
On this occasion, the subject of the Bible study will be: “THE ONE SENT BY THE FATHER,” for today, Friday the 15th and Sunday the 17th of December 2017.
It is a great privilege to address each one of you with the subject “THE ONE SENT BY THE FATHER,” meaning, by the heavenly Father, by God; through which, on this occasion, we want to see who is promised to be sent by the heavenly Father to His people, to His Church.
God has sent different men in different dispensations, and in different ages within those dispensations. And we find that it is through those He sent that the Word of God for each time has come to the people of God, to the people who are under the Covenant in effect at that time; therefore, we want to see who is the one sent by the Father at this end time.
In the time of every prophet who was sent, the Word of God came for the people who were under that Divine Covenant. And we have seven important dispensations, to which God has sent dispensational messengers, dispensational prophets, and they are the greatest prophets that God sends to Earth; and a dispensation lasts hundreds and thousands of years in some cases.
And now, we have seen that the people who are under the Divine Covenant for that time, they are the ones to whom God sends a dispensational prophet-messenger; and within that dispensation, He sends different messengers for ages and stages of that dispensation.
And now, for the days of the Coming of the Messiah two thousand years ago, He sent the forerunner, John the Baptist, who was the last prophet of the ages of the Law for the Hebrew people.
We find that after this messenger, the Messiah the Prince had to appear and He would carry out a three-and-a-half year ministry in which He would lay down His life in atonement for sin.
Before beginning His ministry, He was a simple carpenter in Nazareth, having been born through the virgin Mary, and raised under the divine laws of the Dispensation of the Law.
We find that in order to have that three-and-a-half-year ministry, He had to come to Earth 29 years earlier, to then begin that ministry, which would take Him to the fulfillment of the Coming of the Messiah for that time as the Lamb of God, to die in the corresponding Sacrifice and take away the sin of the world; because He would take the sin of His people.
And now, when He began His ministry, He was already an adult who had been among the people for about 30 years; and He must have grown up, He must have been raised like the other children, like the rest of the people, but there is something very important, and it is that when the enemy of God, the devil, Satan, knows that God will do something in favor of the people, he rises against that instrument whom God will use, like in the case of Joseph, the son of Jacob, whom by His grace, God had to take to Egypt, to be educated there; however, the Egyptians didn’t know who was that young man who was second-in-command in the kingdom of Egypt, in the days of the Pharaoh who helped Joseph and placed him as his second-in-command in the kingdom of Egypt.
If it were discovered who Joseph was, he would have had many problems there in Egypt. We find that very few people knew that Joseph was a Hebrew, a descendant of Jacob. We also find that Moses was born already determined by God as a dispensational messenger, as a prophet for the Dispensation of the Law.
And if the Pharaoh knew that Moses was a Hebrew, he would have cast him into the river, to the crocodiles, just as they were doing to all the Hebrew boys who were born. If they found out that Moses was the deliverer whom God would send, they would kill him. That is why the Pharaoh gave the order to kill, to cast into the river all the boys who would be born, all the male sons who would be born. Why? So that the deliverer would die, because they already knew he had been born somewhere, but it could not be revealed who he was, in order to prevent his death.
We also find other messengers of God who were partially instruments for an age, for one of the ages of each dispensation. For example, we have John the Baptist. John the Baptist died, he was beheaded, but he introduced the One who would come after him: Jesus Christ.
We find that Jesus Christ had lived in Egypt for a period of time, because the king found out that the Messiah the Prince had been born when he questioned the wise men who had come looking for the King of Israel who was born, whom they came to worship. And Herod didn’t want another king to appear, and he sent them to investigate where the Messiah was, he sent the wise men to go, to see Him, and then to tell him where He was so that he could go worship Him; but his intention was to go kill Him, because the king didn’t want the deliverer, the Messiah the Prince, the King of Israel to appear. But the Angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in dreams and told him to leave to Egypt, because the king would seek the child to kill Him.
There is always a struggle when the coming of a prophet is promised to the people of God, to the House of God, to the Family of God.
We find that John the Baptist was beheaded because he was preaching and announcing the Coming of the Messiah, who would be among them; and when he saw Him and baptized Him, he said that He was the One who would come after him.
Now, we find that Jesus Christ would tell His disciples and preach the things that the Messiah the Prince would be carrying out for that time, which was to fulfill what the Messiah the Prince would materialize in His Coming.
We find that He fulfilled everything that was promised for the Messiah to carry out in His First Coming as the Lamb of God to take away the sin of the world with the Blood of His Sacrifice, and thus cleanse the human being from all sin.
Therefore, after the forerunner, comes the one forerun, for which he must be on Earth during the days in which the forerunner is alive. At some point in the earthly life of the forerunner on this Earth, the one forerun must be present, carrying out a work, which is relevant to what the Messiah the Prince will fulfill, will materialize on this Earth, so that at the end, the mystery of the Coming of the Messiah may be opened.
And if they cannot believe in Him, they can believe in the works He will be carrying out, which are the materialization of what is promised for God to carry out at the time of the prophetic ministry, the messianic ministry of that man anointed with the Spirit of God to fulfill the Coming of the Messiah.
The works He will be doing before revealing to the people who the Messiah the Prince is, who was promised for that time, the works that He will be doing will testify themselves that He is the Messiah the Prince promised to come to the House of God, to the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ at the Last Day, as He did two thousand years ago, through the presence of Jesus Christ, who fulfilled everything that was promised to be carried out by the Messiah the Prince in His First Coming as the Lamb of God.
When He was revealed in His prophetic, messianic ministry, He was already about 30 years old; therefore, the messianic ministry for Jesus two thousand years ago was short, three and a half years long; and that is half of the seventieth week of the book of prophet Daniel. The other half of the three and a half years is left, which will be fulfilled in the Second Coming of Christ, the Anointed One, the Messiah the Prince, who will also be a descendant of Abraham, he will be a descendant of Jacob, and he will be a descendant of Judah, he will be a descendant of Judah as well.
Therefore, let’s be prepared, because the works that the Lord will be doing at this end time will be the evidence that He is the One sent by God to the House of God, to the Family of God, which is the Mystical Body of believers for the gentiles; and for the Jews, this will be the Two Olive Trees, the ministries of Moses and Elijah, those ministries being repeated at this end time.
The House of God, the Family of God, the descendants of God, the ones written in Heaven in the Lamb’s Book of Life, at this end time will have the fulfillment of the promise of the Coming of the Messiah to the House of God, to the House, to the Family of God, which is the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ under the New Covenant. And Israel will see these ministries of the Two Olive Trees: the ministry of Elijah for the fifth time, manifested in a man, and the ministry of Moses, which will identify that person as the One sent by God, the One sent by the Father, sent to the House of God, the Family of God, the descendants of God.
Now, let’s read a passage here in First Timothy, chapter 3, verses 14 to 16, it says the following: “These things write I unto thee…”
Saint Paul, writing to Timothy, says:
“These things write I unto thee, hoping to come unto thee shortly:
But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.
And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.”
Here the apostle Paul tell us, speaking to Timothy, how he should behave in the House of God, which is the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. The House of God, the Family of God, where God sends His prophet-messengers from dispensation to dispensation and from age to age.
Therefore, where will we look for the One sent by God for the Last Day? In the House of God, which is the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. That is where you will find, where they will see the fulfillment of the Coming of the Messiah for the end time. For the gentiles… what the Second Coming of Christ is for the Church, for the Jews will be the Coming, the manifestation of the Two Olive Trees, the manifestation of Elijah for the fifth time (in his fifth ministry), and the second ministry of Moses for the people of God, for the Jews.
What the Sixth Seal is, the Two Olive Trees, Moses and Elijah, for the Jews: is the Seventh Seal, the Coming of the Lord, for Christianity. It is as simple as that.
Therefore, it is important to be spiritually awake, awaiting the fulfillment of the prophecies relevant to this end time.
The believers in Christ must be alert, because the mystery of the Second Coming of Christ will be opened to the public at some point, and that is where mercy will end, because the door to divine mercy under the Dispensation of Grace will close, and the door to the Dispensation of the Kingdom will open, which Jews from among the Hebrew people will enter into, twelve thousand from each tribe of the children of Israel.
Therefore, let’s be alert, with our spiritual eyes wide open, because soon, the mystery will open of the Second Coming of Christ for Christianity and the Coming of Moses and Elijah for the Jews.
The subject of our Bible study for today, Friday, December 15th and Sunday, December 17, 2017, has been: “THE ONE SENT BY THE FATHER.”
May God open the Scriptures to us and allow us to see which are the prophecies for this end time, the messianic prophecies which must be fulfilled by the Messiah the Prince, who is promised to come at this end time.
May God bless and keep all of you, and at this end time, may He allow us all to see the important time in which we are living, wherein, when we see Him in the fulfillment of His Coming, we will be able to say: “That is what I was waiting for, because I wholeheartedly believed in what is promised in the Scripture regarding the Coming of the Messiah at this end time.”
May God bless all of you, keep you, and may He use you greatly in His Kingdom at this end time, and soon, may we receive the faith, the revelation of the Coming of the Lord and the works that will be fulfilled by Him at this end time. And thus, we will receive the faith to be changed and taken with Him to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, to Heaven.
Now, if there is someone who has not received Christ as his Savior, you may do so at this time and we will be praying for you so that Christ receives you in His Kingdom, forgives you and cleanses you from all sin with His Blood, and so that you be baptized in water in His Name, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and Christ baptizes you with the Holy Spirit and Fire and brings forth the new birth in you.
You may come to the front, here, and those who are in other countries may also step forward in the church, in the congregation where you are, to receive Christ as your only and sufficient Savior, and we will be praying for you.
You may continue coming to the front, those who have been receiving the Word and whom God has spoken to their hearts, to their souls.
You may continue coming to the front to receive Christ as your only and sufficient Savior, here in Puerto Rico, and also in the rest of the countries connected to the broadcast of this service we are having directly from Puerto Rico.
Now, let’s pray:
Our Father which art in Heaven, blessed be Your Name forever. I come to You with these people who are receiving Christ as their only and sufficient Savior. Receive them in Your Kingdom. In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen, amen.
And now, you have the opportunity to be baptized in water in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, for which there are baptism clothing and baptisteries in the different countries so that all those who have received Christ in their hearts as their only and sufficient Savior can be baptized.
In Puerto Rico, I leave the minister, Reverend Jose Benjamin Perez, and in each place, I leave each minister to inform you what you must do to be baptized in water in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, as it was done on the Day of Pentecost, and as it continued to be done by the early Church.
May God greatly bless and keep all of you today, Friday, December 15th, and Sunday, December 17, 2017.
May the blessings of Christ, the Angel of the Covenant, be upon all of you and upon myself as well.
“THE ONE SENT BY THE FATHER.”
