The Restoration Of All Things - Part 7

Summary of Sermon Spoken on 30th December 2012 by Pastor Donald Parnell, Dayton, Ohio. U.S.A.

 
The devil doesn't like the Third Coming day. But we keep on talking about it. You can't stop God.
 
Thirteen is the number of the United States. The seventh mystery is of God, even Christ, as the incarnate fullness of the Godhead embodied, in whom all Divine wisdom and Godliness is restored to man. The seventh mystery is all about how God came out of the 6th/7th dimensions and stepped into an earthly body. He embodied Himself in the fullness in man. The birth of Jesus started the fullness - Galatians 4 - "0" B.C.

GALATIANS 4:4: ... but when the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth his son, made of a woman, made under the law,

The embodiment of God in the Earth is the fullness is on the scene. The 'fullness of time' on the scene was a son ... that came by the angel Gabriel with his message and appearance.

LUKE 1:26 - 35:  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.

God build circumstances around you to bring out what he wants to.

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:

God reveals things as you go along.

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. Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the son of God.

It's easy for the natural mind to think of natural happenings, but God moves us away from the traditional way of thinking. We've gone beyond the natural way of thinking. Mary received the Message for her Day by the Spoken Word. Mary received the Revelation for her Day how God was going to embody Himself in the Earth.
 
Joseph - a just man - was going to privately put Mary away - but then came an angel visitation.

MATTHEW 1:18 - 24:  Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: when as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privately.

The Holy Ghost (Word-man) overshadowed your body and spoke the Word Seed into your body. The only way to receive a New Birth is for the Word-man to speak to you.

But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.

The "thing" that is inside of you is of the Holy Ghost and it created another body for you. You must hear the Word of the Hour in order to receive it. It's the operation of the Holy Ghost. You have to have an 'angel visitation' in order to bring forth fruit in due season.

Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:

Our 'angel visitation' gave us a Word to build our Revelation upon. When the embodiment takes place it is the fullness of God on the scene. Have you heard from your Word-man? He talks to you from the inside.
 
Herod the King - taxation & politics.

LUKE 2:1 - 5:  And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David to be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

Taxation and politics begins to rise when the embodiment (fullness) steps on the scene. Everything that happens is related to what God is doing. 
 
Birth of Jesus in Bethlehem - House of God's bread

LUKE 2:4 - 7:  And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David to be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

Angel visitation to shepherds - message of good will - child born

2:8 - 20:  And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

When God gets ready to embody Himself into the Earth, he visits shepherds. Shepherds are like their people (sheep). They love and protect them. God visits shepherds who are willing to live like their people. God moves/lives among his people. God visited Brother Branham and the Message went to the common people.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

We are fulfilling Scriptures every day.

And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.
 
And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

When you're Born Again you ponder in your heart on the supernatural things. You believe them and then they are produced in your life. The Eighth Day Holy Convocation - circumcision and presentation to the Lord - the new name - Simeon and Anna at the Holy Convocation.

2:21 - 24:  And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called Jesus, which was so named of the angel before he was conceived in the womb.

The 'name' is revealed on / in the Eighth Day.

And when the days of her purification according to the Law of Moses were accomplished, they brought Him to Jerusalem, to present Him to the Lord; (as it is written in the Law of the Lord, every male that openeth the womb shall be called holy to the Lord and to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the Law of the Lord, a pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons. God uses those who are poor in spirit.

2:25 - 35: And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the holy ghost was upon him. And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ. And he came by the spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law, then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said,

We were taken up and God was blessed.

Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy Word: for mine eyes have seen thy salvation, which thou hast prepared before the face of all people; a light to lighten the gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel. And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of him. And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against; (yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.

The embodiment of the Lord is a body movement.

2:36 - 39:  And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of a great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity; and she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day.

The Word-man and the flesh-man came together on the eighth day. It was a Word embodiment.

And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto the Lord, and spake of him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem. And when they had performed all things according to the law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own city Nazareth.

After the angels sang at Sunset Mountain then the Word and flesh united in the Eighth Day and presented a New Body of the Lord in the Temple. Star and wise men - heavenly constellation and announcement appears at the birth of Jesus. Wise men - they travel east to west following the birth star. They enter Jerusalem and the star disappears; and they reveal to Herod that the Messiah is on Earth. Herod awaits a word from the wise men that they have found the Messiah.
 
They exit Jerusalem, the star reappears and they are led to Bethlehem - Jesus is in the house, they worship Him and three gifts are revealed - gold, frankincense and myrrh. The wise men go out another way and hide this Revelation from Herod . ... with many in the church tonight enjoying fellowship. God created the circumstances in order for us to come together in the Third Coming. Herod was over the headquarters. There is a red dragon today. We are declaring ... we saw the star and we know the Lord is in the earth now. They don't know what you're talking about.

MATTHEW 2:1 - 2:  Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the King, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.
 
3 - 8:  When Herod the King had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born. And they said unto him, in Bethlehem of Judaea: For thus it is written by the prophet,

Herod has a long arm and he taxes everyone if he don't like your message.

And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, art not the least among the princes of Judah: for out of thee shall come a governor, that shall rule my people Israel. Then Herod, when he had privately called the wise men, enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared. And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me Word again, that I may come and worship him also.
 
9 - 11:  When they had heard the King, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was. When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy. And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh.

The flight (rapture) - angel visits Joseph - go to Egypt - hide there.

12 - 15:  And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod , they departed into their own country another way. And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee Word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him. When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt: and was there until the death of Herod, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.,/p> The flight (rapture) - angel visits Joseph - go to Egypt - hide there. Great tribulation and red dragon - Herod calls his prophets and starts a persecution - Rachel weeping - Jesus hides in Africa for 8 years (He is 10 years old when he returns to Galilee)

16 - 18:  Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men. Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.

Nazareth - the quite years of maturing and growth - silence

19 - 23:  But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the Lord appeareth in a dream to Joseph in Egypt, saying, arise, and take the young child and his mother, and go into the land of Israel: for they are dead which sought the young child's life. And he arose, and took the young child and his mother, and came into the land of Israel. But when he heard that Archelaus did reign in Judaea in the room of his father Herod, he was afraid to go thither: notwithstanding, being warned of God in a dream, he turned aside into the parts of Galilee: and he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene.

The spirit of the red dragon is here today to try and kill the influence of the Third Coming. Our angel will directs us to fulfill our Scriptures.
 
"The birth of Jesus in this wise"

'GOD HIDING HIMSELF IN SIMPLICITY'; Jeffersonville, Indiana. 17th March 1963.
16-1. {86}. Now, Lord God, creator of heavens and earth, we stand as the people of thy fold. We stand as the people of thy kingdom, and with myself, and the pastor, and the church, the people, we dedicate this building to the service of the almighty God through the name of Jesus Christ, His son, for the service of God and for reverence and respects of God. And may the gospel so flow from this place till it'll cause the world to come from the four corners of the globe to see the glory of God going forth from it. As thou hast done in the past, may the future be many times greater.

The Prophet dedicated the Temple of the Lord in this Third Coming. Simeon and Anna, Word and flesh, came together and went to dedicate the Tabernacle of God to the Lord. Our building (flesh-man) has been dedicated to the service of the Lord. Watch him dedicate "Solomon's Temple" = the Third Testament. Look at them come from the four corners of the Globe to hear this Third Coming. We are the people that God has embodied for the service of the Lord in the Third Coming.

16-2. {87}. And, father, we now dedicate ourselves to the service to the Word with all that's in us. Lord, the congregation and the people, they dedicate themselves this morning to the hearing of the Word. And we, as ministers, dedicate ourselves to the preaching of the Word, to be instant in season, out of season, reproving, rebuking with all long-suffering as it's written there in the cornerstone from thirty years ago. You said the time would come when people would not endure sound doctrine, but would heap for themselves teachers having itching ears and be turned from the truth to fables.
 
16-3. {87}. Lord, as we have tried to hold out the Word to the people, may we be inspired and strengthened with a double effort, Lord, as a double portion of the Spirit strikes upon the place, may the Holy Spirit as it was in the day of the dedication of the temple when Solomon prayed, the Holy Spirit in the form of the Pillar Of Fire and Cloud came in the front door,

Rode up around the cherubims, and went over to the Holy Place, and there took its resting place.

O God, Solomon said, "If thy people be in trouble anywhere, and look to this holy place and pray, then hear from heaven." Lord, may the Holy Spirit this morning come into every heart, every consecrated soul that's in here. And the bible says that the glory of God was so great until the ministers could not even minister for the glory of God.

... ministers dedicated to the preaching and the believers dedicated to the hearing. It is a Double Portion - the Spirit of the Lord moving across the land in the Third Coming.

17-1. {89}. Oh, Lord God, let it repeat again as we give ourselves to thee with the church in dedication for service. And it is written: "Ask and you shall receive", and we commit ourselves with our offering of the church this morning to you for service, for the latter day light for the evening time lights, that we might bring consolation and faith to the waiting people that's waiting for the coming of the Bridegroom to dress a Bride in the Gospel of Christ for the Lord Jesus to receive. This we dedicate, myself, Brother Neville, and the congregation to the service of God in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Look at the prayer: give us the "cloud". We are past the Pillar Of Fire, a night time gospel. This is the day time now. Look, all ye people of the Earth ... look to this Holy Place, "the Third Testament, the Son of David Ministry, Solomon's Temple. The Third Testament is God's Holy Place today. If God is going to move, He will move in His Holy Place. A small comparison of the two unfolding:
 
When we read of the man-child in Revelation 12 and see that He is caught up ... if we look only on the surface it would appear that He comes forth from the womb and is immediately taken up. But, not so; there is a space of time between the birth and the catching away of the man-child. The type is in the natural child, the Lord Jesus. Always in every prophecy of Scripture there is a natural and a spiritual fulfillment. And, the natural always types the spiritual.
 
Now you are familiar with the teaching on it. How that the Church, the woman, the virgin, produces Christ, the man-child which is the Word-born Bride ... the true Tabernacle of God.
 
"How is it that the man-child remains hidden from the dragon to escape destruction? And, what is he doing during that time."? Below is what I see in Scripture:
 
The child is given, according to Isaiah 9:6, which is the message of the angel to the virgin. Now, since the type is in the natural birth of the Lord Jesus we must follow out those events to see the pattern. When Christ was born in Bethlehem, it was a very quiet and humble event. It took place very near the center of worship, Jerusalem; but the great religious leaders knew nothing of it. Herod was the natural enemy of Christ who sought to destroy him ... and he was the head of the Jewish religious world. He was a great religious leader but was self-centered and worldly. It was through his efforts that the tribulation was set in motion.
 
Jesus was born according to Promise and in such humble circumstances, that it went unseen except by a few shepherds. These shepherds saw and recognized who this was and announced it, but they were considered as fanatics and mostly ignored. Yet, they continually glorified God for the knowledge of this mysterious event.

And when they had seen [it], they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. And all they that heard [it] wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds......and the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

After a period of time (which, in the natural we know to have been about two years) wise men came from afar seeking him. They saw a star and understood by scriptures what time it was: they knew it was time for the appearance of the King of Heaven ... the promised man-child! They came from the East and traveled west to locate him as they inquired along the way. Finally, having lost sight of the star, in the religious system of Jerusalem, they inquired of Herod and in that way the secret was made known to the enemy. The dragon was now aware of the presence of the man-child and sought to destroy him. Before that could happen, God called him away to Egypt to escape the tribulation when Herod realized he had failed. He then slaughtered the woman's seed throughout the land. There is the natural picture; Rachel weeping for her children.
 
When this birth took place it was too simple to believe that such a Supernatural Great Spirit would come in such a way. It hid away the manifestation. What was the man-child doing during this time? Where was he hiding, and what was transpiring? He was discretely being "presented to the Lord" on the Eighth Day. On the Eighth Day after his birth he was "circumcised", "dedicated", and "named". The Eighth Day signifies Eternity after the completion of time. The completion of the Old Testament then, and now the completion of the New Testament ... the Seven Church Ages.

There was in Jerusalem a devout man awaiting the consolation of Israel, Simeon - of the tribe of Asher - eighth son of Jacob.

What was going on in Jerusalem?

'EXPECTATIONS'; 7th May, 1951. Los Angeles, California.
E-21. And the day had got very dull in those days. There were hundreds of people, thousands of them that had turned away from the traditions and away from the faith, gone back, lukewarm. But there was a little remnant who looked for the consolation of Israel. That was John the Baptist, and Simeon, and Anna, the prophetess at the Temple, and many more who waited constantly believing that God would fulfill his promise. They was waiting. They believed. No matter how long the promise had been, they believed that the woman's seed would come.
 
They knew that God would send the Christ for judgment ... and for the Salvation of Israel. Simeon was such a man. He was faithful in all the Word he had received by the prophet and in his daily walk he served the Lord day and night. And, he had a revelation that he would be in that promise and see the Lord's Christ.

The reward of uniting the Word-man / flesh-man together is - "I see the Lord in human flesh" ... the New Body of the Lord. Also, there was a woman, Anna, that was present there who had dedicated her life to the worship of God. She was of the Tribe of Asher and was living as close to him as she could and was very devout. She was blind. The things of the world meant nothing to her as she was blind to them all and remained in the service of the Lord day and night. But, she, too, lived with a hope ... to see the consolation of Israel. The reward is being able to see the Lord in His people.

Both of these believers of the eighth tribe were rewarded at the eighth day "convocation" (a "gathering") Jesus raised from the dead on the eighth day, the Holy Ghost fell on the eighth day ... and Jesus was identified and presented to the public on the eighth day ... a holy gathering of the faithful. At that "gathering" he was, 1) presented to the public, 2) he was dedicated to the Lord, 3) he was circumcised of the flesh, and 4) he was given a new name. All of this needed to transpire before the wise men arrived and the enemy forced his flight.

After a space of time the wise men had followed the prophecy and star and the secret was made known to Herod in Jerusalem. The wise men came to Jesus after leaving Jerusalem. There was an exodus out of Jerusalem and Jesus, the Word birthed, was found in Bethlehem. The revelation of deity and worship was revealed in Bethlehem.

The Jerusalem headquarters tried to slaughter the new born king, the Messianic sign and prophecies. The red dragon was waiting in the Message to attack the truths at birth. Then there was the slaughtering of Rachel's children while searching for the Messiah, when he was hid away "resting" in the hiding place of God, Africa.
 
The return was to Nazareth, Galilee, where Jesus grew in wisdom and stature; the silent years of the Fullness while God prepared the scenes for the religious and political realms. The seventh seal was ready to be revealed and at the age of maturity (thirty) the prophet and the Word met at the river when the period of growth for the messiah had completed. The "child messiah" was so hidden away until it was all forgotten, laid aside ... counted as nothing, until the Jordan River experience of the Prophet and the Word fulfilling the prophecies. All of prophecies of the Old Testament in the midst fulfilling themselves in human flesh.

1962-2002 look at such a hiding place ... right on the lap of pharaoh.

The one man ministry had finished planting the Seed Word that would flourish at the end of the age of Fullness. Joseph, Mary, Simeon, Anna, and the twelve disciples, were all seeds that would flourish into the expression of Eternal attributes. The appearances, the angels, the women, the resurrection, the ascension, they were all Seed Word to be made manifest in a grander larger scale in the Body of the Lord.
 
The one-man ministry was now leaving, fading so another Body could come on the scene in the fullness.
 
The promise of another body developing was clear in the Revelation of Jesus. His ascension removed the obstacle of a one-man ministry just as the obstacle of a one-man ministry was removed at the crossing over of the Seventh Angel Prophet. However, all the Seed Word was already placed for the flourishing of the Body of the Lord in His Third Testament.

Now it is a World-wide ministry ... a New Body developing for the Third Testament. It is the change of the Body, from 'lamb to lion'. We have a clear revelation of the Embodiment of God in the Fullness in the Third Coming. Our reward is being able to see the Lord in His Fullness ... a great cluster of angels breaking forth into the Earth ... the Embodiment of Jesus Christ again. I see the Lord!
 
I am so privileged to be a part of this Body. I'm humbled. Thank you all for allowing me to enjoy this Revelation with you. Have a great year in 2013.
