The Rapture

Summary of Sermon Spoken on 14th April 2013 by Pastor Donald Parnell, Dayton, Ohio. U.S.A.

 
We moved forward and skipped three messages. You can find them on the website, in, "The Easter Messages Review", and the two on, "The Power of Transformation". This message is kind of a conclusion of the "The Power of Transformation" messages.

... One thing that it takes is that the ministers need to be very grounded in the Revelation, so that the leaders and the congregation see the unity. The discussions are to help the people see and go deeper into the Revelation. It is for their growth. If the ministry is not agreeable then it would not be good to have the panel-type discussions. We are all in this together and looking to solidify and go deeper in the Revelation. I wanted to do it for the edification of the Body of the Lord in this Third Testament. ... Would rather that people listen and comment on the message.

We know it is not exactly the same, but you are a part of us Sister Mae and you can participate from a distance. We love you and all the Canadian group that is part of our congregation. Amen Sister Rose, yes, you too. We consider you a part of our local Assembly, all of you.

Real fighters that will fight Satan and stand behind this Third Testament Word no matter what. Bethlehem dwellers, draw your swords and come stand by me this day in the Third Testament. I could never be the same from a little boy seeing the move of a real prophet, the real coming of the Lord. [If there's any deliverance, God will use man.] That experience has marked my earthly life forever.

It was good to have our congregation from Indiana with us today. We have many of our congregation living in Indiana. Brother Darrell and family are in Richmond and then there are many in Frankfort, and then we have some in Peru and Darlington, Indiana.

Yes, amen, and we have loved ones from Brook, Indiana, just south of Chicago. Wow, we have a large congregation from Indiana. May God bless them greatly. Amen, we have many families in Canada too. We have about 55-65 locally and we have about 175 across the United States, and Canada outside the local area.

[God's trend doesn't change and cannot change. When the World wanted a Savior, God gave a little man-child in a manger. Again, when the World wanted Jesus Christ to come back, God gave William Branham to us, yet they do not want him still, they want Jesus Christ to come. God sent Jesus Christ to us in this Last Day through his servant William Marrion Branham... food for thought... Are you awake to see this or are you blind as a bat and keep walking away waiting for the rapture all your life. Maybe, if you search the scripture, you will see that God always sends man to do the work of deliverance.]

JOB 42:1
Then Job answered the LORD, and said, JOB 42:2 I know that thou canst do every- thing, and that no thought can be withholden from thee.

Job had three friends that didn't take him far enough ... Job's denominational friends. They can only take you so far and then you stop under condemnation. Then Elihu, the fourth man came on the scene (the full Word) ... the fourth man in the fiery furnace. Elihu gave back Job all that he had and justified him. Justification, sanctification, restoration of gifts ... and the full Word.

42:3 - 4: Who is he that hideth counsel without knowledge? therefore have I uttered that I understood not; things too wonderful for me, which I knew not. Hear, I beseech thee, and I will speak: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me.

The fourth man on the scene was Elihu, the full Word and he revealed to Job the Whirlwind and the Word of the Day. Elihu opened up Job's mind, have him the Mind of Christ that he always needed.

42:5 - 6: I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee. Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.

Now that I see all this, I abhor myself. Look at what "abhor" means. In the following;
Abhor: 1) to reject, despise, refuse, to abhor, loathe, be vilely cast away, fall, to abhor, loathe, to be defiled. "Refuse to look at myself as imperfect"

I refuse to look at myself as imperfect! We are free from the Fall. We are not in a fallen condition anymore. Now watch Job and see what he writes.

JOB 8:20:
Behold, God will not cast away a perfect man, neither will he help the evil doers:

A man who is Spoken Word Birth Body ... New Creation is not cast away. We are perfect in the condition. The preaching of the Word has made you perfect!!!

Perfect: = (Garden of Eden Perfection). 1) perfect, complete - complete, perfect - sound, wholesome - complete, morally innocent, integrity - one who is morally and ethically pure.

A complete man who walks in maturity, morally, ethically pure, is perfect and cannot be cast away. You are New Creation!!!! Behold!!! All things are New. We have been made into the same condition as Jesus by the New Birth.

HEBREWS 12:22 - 23:
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.

Perfect = Faith of the Fathers Perfection -- man, of full age. 1) Brought to its end, finished; wanting nothing necessary to completeness; perfect; that which is perfect: consummates human integrity and virtue; of men, full grown, adult, of full age, mature.

Look at that! Just men made perfect!!!!!! So your body was taken back to the original Word and your faith is taken back to the original Word. Inside and out, you are perfect. We have grown to the fullness of perfection. The original Pentecost in Acts 2.

HEBREWS 5:13 - 14: For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the Word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

Milk = baby food. Unskillful = no experience. We now have senses that are being used that are senses of the Word-man. Even when they are babes, eagles eat meat.

'THE TOKEN'; Jeffersonville, Indiana. 1st September, 1963.
85. Therefore, in the days of Wesley or... The days of Luther, it was thought, "to believe." In the days of Wesley, "the chemistry of the Blood." But this is the last day, where the Token is required. And that makes, together, the whole unit for the Rapture.

Look at that! "together, the whole unit for the rapture"! All of the unit from acts 2 is the whole of the entire rapture. There is a unit now, we are it!

86 - 87. Water, blood, and spirit come when a mother gives birth to the baby. The first thing breaks, a normal birth, is a water, the second thing is a blood, and the next thing is life.
There come from the body of our Lord Jesus Christ: water, Blood, and Life. And the whole Church, the Bride, together, has been made up through justification, sanctification, and the baptism of the Holy Ghost, which is the Token.

Water, blood and life - Luther, Wesley, William Branham - the messages.

'CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY OF GOD REVEALED'; Jeffersonville, Indiana. 28th July, 1963.
188. And to be sure, that, the whole Rapture now; Luther was a part, Wesley was a part, the prophets was a part. If they're--aren't a part... Just in the revelation that they was making up, the body, feet, toes, arms, and so forth, until the Head, see, that makes the entire Rapture. It's the Body of the Word, which is Christ. Amen!

The whole Rapture = all of its parts from Paul all the way through. The entire Rapture ... it's the body of the "Word", which is Christ. Jesus transformed into the bodies of the believers.

The Body of the "Word" is being Raptured. You are transferring everything into the Word-man for his experience. The dirt gets quickened but the Word-man gets Raptured.

'THE RAPTURE'; Yuma, Arizona. Saturday, 4th December, 1965.
115. Now, the Life that come up through Luther was what made Wesley. The Life that come out of Wesley is what made Pentecost. The Life that comes out of Pentecost makes the wheat. But they are carriers. See? The real Life goes through there. The Message goes through, but It's heading on up into the wheat.

Our existence is by the "Word" and when the Word was preached through William Branham it brought us into existence in the earth. That's the reason the wheat come up and brings the whole thing in the Rapture, up here at the top. The Bride, Itself, comes out of each age. But the denominational stalk dies, dries up and dies. Have you noticed, this last days, how it's begin to pull away now? When that wheat begins to grow, then the shuck begins to get away from It.

'THE POWER OF TRANSFORMATION'; 31st October, 1965.
79. To bring this Message, it wasn't easy. See? No, it isn't. I had to forsake everything that was dear to me, even my own people, everybody. But you see the value of it is, you see, is to do the will of God. And to do that, which knowing that there is something in me, when they used to say... Well, they was going to put me away; thought I lost my mind.

The cry from the past is always, "Look out for that new stuff, you'll be deceived". It wasn't easy! We all have walked away from so much. We all have a book to tell. This is why we love one another so much. We have all sacrificed our lives for this.

The Will of God - that is the value of what you do.

EPHESIANS 2:4 - 5:
But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved.)

The Message of the Hour in each day caught the Wife of Christ all up "together". It happened again today.

2:6: And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

Notice; "together", "together", "we are all in this together. When the Prophetic Spirit comes on the scene it raises an entire nation of believers.

"The Transformation Together as a Unit" "A Seed": "A Pyramid". The Seed moves together as a unit! "The pyramid is built as a unit". Do you see that we have raised together as a unit? Yes, amen ... as a "temple" ... it is built as a unit. Look at us, a unit of the Seed, the Pyramid, the Temple. "A person" ... the body of a person is a unit. We are a person. Jesus Christ!

"A Person", in Death, Burial, and Resurrection ... Lazarus building a Spoken-Word Body, from Luther to William Branham. The building of a unit of the Lord, a Spoken-Word Body of the Lord across 2000 years.

"A creation" - seven messages of Creation brought forth a unit called - the Universe. It moves continually as a unit. Planets, stars, houses, constellations, the Zodiac, the water, the Blood ... the Spirit worlds. We are a unit! Too vast for a man!!!!

"A family", glory, what a unit! Relation! "Prophet - Priest - King" ... from Pentecost - the Transformation Church - (1953 - 1956) Bride; (1957 - 1963) Queen; (1963 - 1965) Wife / King. [Amen; the 'triple conjunction' is for the family to stay together in the same Room.] Amen, Brother Winston. All in the Room together, raised into the Water of the Word.

Look at the change, the transformation, the translation into the New Day. Matured ... Church, Bride, Queen, Wife, and King. Now watch how this change took place. The change of the Body took place and we need to see it here.

And when he looked around to see where that Lion was, he saw a Lamb: strange, look for a Lion and see a Lamb. The elder called Him a Lion, but when John looked, he saw a Lamb--a Lamb as It had been slain from the foundation of the world: a Lamb, having been slain... What was it? What was that Lamb? It was bloody, wounded, a Lamb that had been slain, but was alive again; and he was bloody. Oh, my. How can you look at that, folks, and remain a sinner?

When he looked around to see where the lion was, all he could see was a lamb. The lion was hidden behind lamb's skin ... hid behind the Redeemed Lamb, William Branham. During this time of Malachi 4, the Lion was hidden behind the skin of a Prophet, restoring all things. All this was going on in 1963 at the Opening of the Seals.

There are still many people looking around for where the Lion is ... and all they see is your Redeemed Lamb's skin. The Lion, Leo coming back into the earth, and Aries is the Lamb standing in front of them. Aries birthed in a Prophet. John recognized it was Jesus Christ standing there in the body of William Branham. How about you!!!!!! Who do you see today????

John was used to seeing Jesus with long hair and a robe or in robes of Fire in Revelation. And then John saw a man, "William Branham" standing in a suit with a bald head, 53 years old. John was looking at the Redeemed Lamb William Branham and didn't know how to take it further. Don't worship the flesh; you bow to Jesus, the Word-body, the Fullness.

And when he looked around to see where that Lion was, he saw a Lamb: strange, look for a Lion and see a Lamb. The elder called Him a Lion, but when John looked, he saw a Lamb--a Lamb as It had been slain from the foundation of the world: a Lamb, having been slain... What was it? What was that Lamb? It was bloody, wounded, a Lamb that had been slain, but was alive again; and he was bloody. Oh, my. How can you look at that, folks, and remain a sinner?

Glory! How can you look at that and remain a sinner!!!! You can't; you'll become the Redeemed Lamb when you see this!!!! The Lion is always hid behind the veil. He is alive again!!!!!!

John had seen the Word-body, but he hadn't noticed this Lambs body! This Lamb was hid!!!! We were not in flesh back there in the prior world. This Lamb was strange, but had the same Voice. It looks different when it gets into the human body. It come from the Father's Throne = it come from the Theophany world and put on flesh. He hadn't seen us in these bodies and it looked different.

He raised up and set on the right hand of God, ever living to make intercessions. Amen. Raised there today as an Intercessor with His own Blood to make intercession upon the ignorance of the people. Now, oh, that's the One I'm depending on.

Every Age got into trouble and got sent the Word, a Prophet, Jesus in a human body. Prophets come to stand in place of our ignorance. Jesus in human bodies, that's the one I'm depending on ... the Word in the Third Testament.

He proceeded out; John hadn't saw Him, because He had been way back into the eternities, even making intercession and showing that those who had come to God under the offering of the blood of bulls, of goats, a substitutionary offering, He also... 'Cause them who believed it pointed to Him. And the Blood had not been shed yet, so He was there to clear them. He was there to clear you and I. And oh, God, I hope He's there tonight. For every sinner, the Lamb been slain.

Way back into the Eternities sending out Theophanies to put on flesh and become the sacrifice in every Age. The title deed is an authority over the earth body that you own. Adam fell into a polluted condition and the human spirit put a lean on the title deed. The human spirit wanted to acquire Eternal Life through a fallen lean. With a Theophany living in there it was a soul imprisoned unless someone cleared the deed. The title deed had a lean of sin upon it. You can't use the land the way you need to because of the lean on the title deed. The judge was our redeemer! The judge, the lawyer and the jury was all Jesus Christ.

The judge cleared the court lean on the title deed of your earth. Now you have an "abstract title deed". There is nothing against you at all - you are free, holy, pure, morally ethical, perfect. The courts of Jesus Christ enforced the judgment and cleared the deed.

He proceeded out; John hadn't saw Him, because He had been way back into the eternities, even making intercession and showing that those who had come to God under the offering of the blood of bulls, of goats, a substitutionary offering, He also... 'Cause them who believed it pointed to Him. And the Blood had not been shed yet, so He was there to clear them. He was there to clear you and I. And oh, God, I hope He's there tonight. For every sinner, the Lamb been slain.

He's here today, the Lamb been slain! Now we are the Redeemed Lamb of God with our abstract title deed walking through the earth calling all other holders to their Glory.

"Abstract", not a body of old creation! A body of the New Creation - back to the Garden and back to the faith of the fathers - a double portion, Elisha on the scene, Joseph in his ministry.

If anybody asks you just who I am, tell them I am redeemed ... the Voice of the Lion, the skin of a Lamb, walking in earth ... perfect, totally redeemed.
