The Restoration Of All Things - Part 14 - True Grace Revealed
Summary of Sermon Spoken on 27th January 2013 by Pastor Donald Parnell, Dayton, Ohio. U.S.A.
ZECHARIAH 14:17 to 19: And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain. And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles. This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.Isn't it something how all of the interpreters of the Second Coming miss scriptures like this. They think the Millennium is going to be an earthly utopia when the Lord prophesied drought, judgment, cursings and things upon the ungodly.
I was listening to a preacher who said, "Brother Donald Parnell has fallen, fallen out of the Second Coming truths and will never find his way back". When I heard him I stood up and raised my hands and said, "Lord, if Coming into the Third Coming is a fall, then please Lord let me fall like this all the time. And I thank you Lord that I will never find my way back."
When there is no more good food in an area then a lion will move on to ground where there is fresh food. Then the hyenas come in behind the lion and pick over what is already ripped and torn and dead. I watch it happen time and time again ... hyenas moving around in the land. That's okay, when you see them you know God is finished with that place. The roar of the lion is a sound that calls us together. The roar that gathers us scatters them.
For the year 2013 Dayton, Ohio was termed "the city of death". All major manufacturing has left it. It was counted as one of the ten top cities to stay away from if you are looking for a career. "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil."
We are alive. A table is set in the presence of our enemies. Yea, "Though you make your bed in hell, I will be there with you." The global Earth will follow the Church back into order. The Church has to receive all things first.
EPHESIANS 3:1 - 2: For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles, If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward:Paul was breaking a new dispensation to the people of the Lord. He declared it to be a dispensation of "grace" and a dispensation to the "gentiles", or to all people and not just a natural seed. God always uses the heart of the ministry to administer His dispensations and Word. The disciples didn't know how to pull things over into a New Day and open up the field to all nations. God sent Paul and opened his heart to them through the door of utterance. God has a ministry pouring out into the Earth. God uses human flesh and opens up the heart of a man to reveal His mysteries. Paul did not reject Israel. He said, "They counted themselves unworthy of Eternal Life, therefore, I go to the Gentiles." The grace of God will accomplish the purpose of God every time.
3:3 to 7: How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few Words, whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ ) which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; that the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel: whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power.1. It is a dispensation of "grace"
2. All nations are included in this dispensational gospel.
The Church under this past dispensation was a woman. We have been gone from the dispensation for about 50 years now.
3:5: Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;
"A Woman Still Waiting":
Mess-age ones, what's that flower you have on - a faded message? Waiting to go to a mansion someday?
In her younger days they called her Delta Dawn

114. Now, now, then comes the church dispensation in. We lived back in Noah's time, the antediluvian; we come into the dispensation of law; then in the dispensation of grace, the church. And now the church dispensation is ending. We all know that.You don't have to stay under the Law for a moment unless you chose to do so. There were other things that God injected into the human race. Law, was one of those things. He gave us an inoculation. He builds immunity against things by placing a temporal live germ into us. What does jail do for you? It limits the things that you can get do. The Word sets you free. And He sent a Prophet prophesying of the time. Now, the believers, He gathered them; the unbelievers perished in his day. All who believed on Him was saved; all that did not believe His Message was lost.
114. Now, now, then comes the church dispensation in. We lived back in Noah's time, the antediluvian; we come into the dispensation of law; then in the dispensation of grace, the church. And now the church dispensation is ending. We all know that.1. Dispensation of law
2. Dispensation of denomination - grace prevailed.
And now the church dispensation is ending. what ended!!! "Denomination".
115. Now, if God did thus-and-thus in that dispensation, in those other two dispensations, He has to remain the same and do the same in this dispensation, 'cause He said He would do it. I'll prove it in a few minutes, by the Word, that He said He would do it. Now, He cannot change His program, He's God. Notice what He did in them dispensations.So the prophet shows us "another dispensation" after the dispensation of denomination. Law inoculated the male dispensation. Denomination inoculated the female dispensation. The Lord built the revelation against that germ of denomination and you can't die from it now.
TITUS 2:11 - 12: For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and Godly, in this present world;Grace of God is a life form that will change you completely. The grace of God pulled all the life out of the shuck into the grain. The Old Testament was that male factor and that body needed an inoculation of law to build the body for the Messiah's First Coming. How did you come through the female factor and come out into the Third Coming? You were inoculated with a germ of denomination and you built up a body against that germ.
The female factor had to die too. She had to receive her inoculation to build the body against this end time Mess-Age and defeat the denominational germ. We are delivered! Male and female have passed through the death germ and defeated it.
The polio germ was a germ that saved millions of children but it also killed many children. Some people can't get past the denominational germ. The Law jailed you. Your Gospel should not jail you. You are still under a denominational germ if you feel jailed. The Message of Jesus Christ will free you. We don't need a jail-house to keep me from going out into the World now. The Message set me free. Not free to sin but free from sin. Build your body up against denomination and law. The grace of God puts you in a covenant of sufficiency. Here's the real woman.
'THE INVISIBLE UNION OF THE BRIDE OF CHRIST'; Shreveport, Louisiana. Thursday, 25th November, 1965.
See, these women we call perfect are really truly "Miss Grace". Yet if a person has things wrong with them in our day, we can't get past it. The Law came for the old creation. Denomination came for the old creation. The grace of God is for the New Creation. "elected lady".
One Message, among all the other messages, elected of God ... William Branham and 969 organizations. God chose 1. 33,000 denominations and one Third Testament Message today. God chose 1.
41 - 42. Like, the virgin was to bring forth the body of God, on the earth. She was an elected woman. God chose Mary. And, also, God has chose an elected Lady, which is His Bride. She's elected. I hope we're members of that, tonight, across the world, across the nation, rather.This Elect Lady is now producing Christ, chosen, elected and bringing forth Spoken Word-birth children.
43. The illustration here, showing the relationship of Bride to Christ, the elect Lady: and how She was to be brought to Him; where She would come from; and how that She would be brought to Him. The Church here, in illustration that we got in view, is illustrated by a woman. Which, a woman is always a type of the Church, because the Church is considered a Bride. A Bride, She is the Bride of the Lord Jesus, the Son of God.The wife goes further and understands more than she did when she was a bride.
44. Always, if you'll watch, watch the conditions and the conduct of women, and you'll see where the church is.
... the people have. See? And that's the way the church has. And you can see it going straight to the ecumenical council, just as certain as anything in the world, and right into Rome as hard as it can go, see, 'cause it's prophesied. And there she is. That's her behavior.
Delta Dawn - abnormal behavior.
52. But then watch again to the spiritual Church, how that group of people, called out, the Elected, through every revival. In Martin Luther, it happened the same way in the reformation. It happened the same thing in the time of John Wesley. It happened the same thing when Pentecostal first started. They dropped them women right back in line with the Word, and then they drift away. There she goes right back over into chaos. But then the time that the people are ready to line up, there is a Message comes forth, and they line with It.Mrs. Grace! The female factor had trouble but watch the real true female fall back in line when a fresh Message comes.
53. Luther was the messenger of one day, of justification, and the Church lined right with it, some of them. The rest of them continued on. Wesley come with sanctification, the Church lined right with it. Pentecost come with the restoration of the gifts, the Church lined right with it, the Elect of that day; and then faded away, went right back off in denominationalism and went right out with the rest of them, all of them right down along the line.
55. We have families. Every family in here is custom to that. Sometimes everything will run fine for you, for years. Then, all at once, you'll hit a spell where, we say it many times in the South here, "When it rains, it pours," and everything goes wrong. You're going through a night time. Then there's a day break, then a night time. Everything runs in continuity. 55. We have families. Every family in here is custom to that. Sometimes everything will run fine for you, for years.

54. Now, but you notice, when the people begin to try to line with the Word, there comes a fresh Message from the Word of God, RIGHT STRAIGHT TO THE PEOPLE. And they catch that Message and line up, every time. It's just in God's... We have that.I thank God for this Message: "right straight to the people". I love it when a person can stand alone, but they still want to get together for fellowship.

Then born and married to a spiritual birth. The first one died.
223. Now, your old book is gone, with your old union. Now, your name in your old, in your... has been transferred. Now, you say, "Do you mean to tell me that my old book..." God put it in the Sea of His Forgetfulness. You stand perfectly before God.Look at this: one book which is an "Eternal Book". And that Eternal Book pushed out two books for us to look at which is the old creation and the New Creation. Like the prophet said, it's really just one book but he's showing you the details.
224. Now, your name is now in the new Book; not the book of life, but the Lamb's Book of Life, what the Lamb redeemed. Not the old book of your natural union, but your new, Bride. Hallelujah! Your new life is in the Lamb's Book of Life, your marriage certificate, hallelujah, where your true Eternal germ, from the beginning, takes hold. Now you're not only forgiven, but you're justified. Glory! "Justified," Romans 5:1 said. Yeah. Romans 5:1 said, "Therefore being justified by faith."Eternal Book = the old and New Book revealed. The Third Testament = the Book of Life and the Lamb's Book revealed. We moved back into the one book and closed up the other two. Transferred from the old creation to the New Creation or transferred from the Book of Life to the Lamb's Book of Life. When the New Creation is finished it will still just be one book - the Eternal Life Book.
225. Look up the Word. The Word don't mean forgiven. The Word means justified. It don't mean you're forgiven.
227. Now, if I did do it, I'm guilty. But you could forgive me, and I wouldn't be guilty. But yet I'm not justified, because I actually done it.Look at that. Once you forgive a person listen.... "Then I wouldn't be guilty"!!!!!!!!! Stop holding guilt over someone and then try to tell them you forgave them.
228. But the Word, justified, is though you never done it. Amen. It's not even regarded, at all. How is it done? In God's Book of the Sea of Forgetfulness, your old book and marriage is divorced and dead. It's not even in the memories of God. Amen. You are justified. "Therefore being justified." It was accused. You was accused. ...Mrs. Grace, can you look at one another in that manner? You certainly should.
You never done it, in the first place. The old union is in the Sea of God's Forgetfulness. You wasn't married to it, to begin with. He, the Bridegroom, bore your shame, Himself, for you, in your place. He took your place, for you were predestinated for Him, to be in His Bride, before the foundation of the world. The Bible said so. You are the predestinated Seed.
COLOSSIANS 3:10 -11: And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him: where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor un-circumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.This New Man is not of the ethnic seed. It is the Spoken Word Seed. A picture of the wedding ring in the August issue of Life Magazine after the great picture of the Wife and Christ on Sunset Mountain.
