The Third Testament - Three Is Perfection (Discussion)

Notes on a Sermon preached 16th May, 2013 by Don Parnell, Jerry Allen, Glen Kegley; Dayton, Ohio.

The Oklahoma City area has been devastated with a monster tornado today. It was almost two miles wide and wiped out a path of 25 miles through the city suburbs. Be in prayer for them as we have believers there in the area. We have Third Coming believers and family in the Oklahoma City areas. Be in prayer as there was complete devastation by a monster tornado ... two miles wide and 27 mile path.

The Earth is pulling back into the upright position. Our Spoken Word Birth and Message is calling for all things to be restored. Yes, our Message is calling it back to its proper position, Sixth Dimensional alignment. The only person in this life that has peace is the one who understands their twofold being.

May 14, Israel was recognized as a nation; May 17, Noah entered the Ark; May 17 issue of the Cloud in Life Magazine. Many things happened in this time. The Lord knows what He is doing for all of us ... symbols of something that is happening in a much deeper dimensional sense.

Salmon fish always swim upstream to plant their eggs and bring birth. We had to swim upstream, backwards to all other fish. Rainbows or "half" covenants happen to the Earth continually. We see the half rainbows after most every rain. The only way to see the whole rainbow in the Earth is to be raptured up off of the Earth and turn around and look back. There is a full Covenant rainbow too. The full rainbow is around the sun. The half Covenant is to the flesh-man and the full Covenant is the Word-man, full Word. Revelation 10:1, is a full rainbow covenant around the sun. His face was as the sun and the rainbow about His head.

Revelation 12 put the woman in the sun, Revelation 10 put the Covenant in the full sun, and Revelation 19 put the prophet in the sun. The woman, the prophet and Christ united.

REVELATION 10:1:  And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:

Face as the sun = wrapped with a rainbow. The full covenant; No more half covenants. First Testament / Second Testament = Third Testament.

PSALM 27:5-6:  For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock. And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me.

The Head is lifted up and in full Covenant now as we walk in the Cloud. Psalm 27 is the Seventh Seal.

'CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY OF GOD REVEALED';   Jeffersonville, Indiana. 28th July, 1963.
...When you see the Headship and the Body becoming One, and the fullness of the measure of His manifestation, shows that the Body is about ready to be received to the Headship. ...

The prophet defines the connection and then he declares that it is connected. Look at the next quote.

... The Headship and the Body has become one unit. It's God manifested in His people. That's the reason the husband and wife is no longer twain; they're one. God and His Church is one, "Christ in you", God's great revelation. Glory to God! ....It's the anointed Body of Christ, proving, manifested God like That body did. And That body redeemed every of this, these bodies, and through there God works His threefold manifestation.

There is no question. The Headship and the Body has become one unit!! God's great Revelation!!! The anointed Body of Christ!!! Manifested God like that Body did!!!  Just like Jesus Christ. It is because "we" are Jesus Christ. When the connection happens, that is perfection, the full complete Body of the Lord.

What do you see? The Great Day, or the terrible day? I am in the Great Day of the Lord. We are not waiting on Headship to come. He already revealed Himself and connected to the Body of believers.

DANIEL 9:27:  And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

What we are looking at in Daniel is a "seven year" covenant that would be split in half. We know that it is the "Son of Man" ministry. Jesus Christ came as Son of Man and then He came again to fulfill the last half in the Redeemed body of William Branham. The Son of Man is connecting headship and bringing together the Son of God and the Son of David to fulfill the Sonship ministry in the Earth. We know that 3 1/2 is a symbol and 7 is a symbol. We are not talking about a literal 3 1/2 years. It is symbolic; it shows us that a Messianic Ministry is on the scene. The last week of Daniel is finished now. We are on the backside of Daniel's 70th week.

REVELATION 11:3-4:  And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.

So we see that the Son of Man ministry is completed and working in the Body of the Lord now.
Moses, Elijah, Christ. = perfection.

DEUTERONOMY 1: 7:6:  At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is worthy of death be put to death; but at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death.

By the Word of the Lord there can be "three witnesses" ... whether you like it or not.

II CORINTHIANS 13:1:  This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every Word be established.

Paul brings it over into the Second Testament. Three is a witness: three is perfection: perfect witness.

'SOULS THAT ARE IN PRISON NOW';   Jeffersonville, Indiana. 10th November, 1963.
348.  Three is perfection. The ministry come to its perfection when it reproduced Christ again in natural, amongst human beings, as was predicted.

Perfection among human beings ... it is here ... prophecy fulfilled.

'SATAN'S EDEN';   Jeffersonville, Indiana. 29th August, 1965.
...when we lust for knowledge (want a Ph.D., LL.D.) it's sin to do so. That's a strong statements, but that's the Truth. No matter how strong it is, it's still the Truth. See? To lust for knowledge, understanding...

This is good. Listen and enjoy Brother Jerry. Anything outside of revelation is "lust".

[Ed. Note. The comments below are from Brother Jerry Allen, unless shown in '[ ]' ].

It's a lust spirit upon a man that would bypass the Word of God for his day and seek for something different. [The thing of it is, is that today we don't try to establish the Word of God in the people's hearts. We're trying to establish ourselves. Churches are trying to establish the doctrine of their church in a person's heart. Spiritual "lust".]

A ministry will never come to a day of perfection when they lust for something outside of the Word of God to establish the hearts of the people. If a ministry hasn't come to perfection in the Third Coming, it's because they're trying to establish or form their own doctrine into the hearts of the people. Instead of planting the Word into the minds of the people for it to take form in their hearts, and so move them forward into a day of perfection, they're trying to inject their own theory into the people.

To stay in an old thing that God has left is to "lust" for something outside of revelation. They do it out of lust, because they want to build or form their own kingdom. Their ministry holds the people back from entering the Perfect Day, desiring to bring honour unto themselves for something that they have done.

A ministry is known by what it tries establish or disprove in the hearts of the people. It's a true ministry that tries to establish the Word of God (Christ) in the hearts of the people. It's a false ministry that tries to disprove the Word of God (Christ) ... to take God away from the hearts of the people. Churches are trying to establish the doctrine of their church in a person's heart. We are commanded to establish the Word of God.

If a ministry has come to its perfection in this day, it's because they have established the Word of God in the hearts of the people, producing Christ again in the flesh. A ministry is perfect or complete in the Third Coming Day when it produces Christ in the flesh. On the other-hand, it's an incomplete and false ministry that tries to disprove Christ from becoming flesh in the Third Coming Day.

Paul said, "I didn't come to you with enticing Words of man that your faith might rest up in the knowledge of men, but I come to you in power, in manifestations of the Holy Ghost that your faith might rest in God." The only thing that can come out of lusting in an old thing is a root of bitterness. Exactly what Esau had, and sold his birthright. [Through this "lust spirit" many minister's of the Second Coming are committing adultery against God - remember if you even think it (lusting after strange flesh) you already committed adultery in your heart!] Today, our faith is resting in God, because our ministry has been perfected by the Gospel of third Coming of Christ in flesh.

PROVERBS 4:10 - 11:  Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many. I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths.

Amen, Solomon, the Son of David speaking: The Lion prevailed to lose the Seals and lead us into the path of the Third Coming. The Third Coming is the way of wisdom.

4:12:  When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble.

When you go in the path of the Third Coming, your steps do not have to be straightened, because there are no crooked paths.

4:13:  Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life.

The Second Coming Message is no longer our life: the Third Coming is our life now.

4:14:  Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men.

Don't go down the path of lust and deceit of evil men who lust to establish their own kingdom; stay with Kingdom of God.

4:15:  Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away.

Avoid anything that tries to distract you away from the Third Coming.

4:16:  For they sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall.

There's no rest for Mess-Age clergy, as they're always trying to do mischief. Their mischief is to cause some to fall from entering into a Day of Perfection. Amen; Paul gave us the same instructions. Avoid those who try to destroy what you are building up.

4:17:  For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence.

When men eat and drink on something outside of the Third Testament it brings tribulation.

4:18:  But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.

Paul said, "Who has bewitched you?" ... bewitched into staying in the past Message of the Second Coming. Christ has been reproduced in the flesh of His people, showing that we have entered into the Perfect Day of the Third Coming.

4:19 - 20:  The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble. My son, attend to my Words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.

Wise Words from a Son of David reading ... from the Son of David.

4:21 - 22:  Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.

It is health unto the flesh-man when Christ is reproduced in the natural. It's unhealthy to the flesh when Christ is not produced in the natural. It's a healthy thing to have perfection. [All of that food came from this Word from the prophet]

'SOULS THAT ARE IN PRISON NOW';   Jeffersonville, Indiana. 10th November, 1963.
348.  Three is perfection. The ministry come to its perfection when it reproduced Christ again in natural, amongst human beings, as was predicted.

[Very good Words of wisdom! Thank God we don't have to pump from a well now. It is an artisan well pushing up and flowing over continually now.]

'SIRS, WE WOULD SEE JESUS';   Jeffersonville, Indiana. 24th December, 1961.
5-3.  When I seen what those men and women went through with back there and see--to maintain this same Gospel, and when they preached this same Gospel, the same thing that happened in the Old Testament, New Testament, and then, just exactly the same, so that gives it one, two, three witnesses; every Word is established. The same God that dealt with the old prophets, dealt with the apostles, and dealt with the Pre-Nicene brethren; and here He is today, dealing the same way with His people, with the same signs, same wonders, same Gospel, same power, same God, everything, with three as a witness to us that this is the Truth. This is Truth, God giving it in three testaments (See?), that history is...

Three as a witness - Old Testament prophets, New Testament prophets, and present day Testament prophets giving it in three Testaments. God giving it in "three Testaments" - it is right in the search engine.

5-4.  The Bible is a history of what God was. So the history of the Old Testament... The New Testament is a history of the New Testament, - the Nicene Council and Fathers, and Post-Nicene Council is the history of the church then. And now, history is making on just as it was, which this history will never be written. No. It's too close to the coming now.

[We were right in the middle of the Coming of the Lord ... and they were so close to it that they couldn't see what was happening. They missed the story that was going on. The history was written wrong. Now, 50 years later I'm making it right!]  We're writing about our Gospel because we're not missing the Third Coming.

HEBREWS 9:14 to 17:   How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth.

[I like a life insurance policy on you. It is of no effect until you die and that covenant with you and the insurance company will come upon the family afterwards. Amen, Brother Rob, very clear.]

1303: AV: -- make - testator - appoint 1) to arrange, dispose of, one's own affairs of something that belongs to one to dispose of by will, make a testament 2) to make a covenant, enter into a covenant, with one.

[You made a "will" or a "testament" between you and the insurance company. You paid the price for it. When you die then the "wife" gets the benefits of the testament.]

'HE THAT IS IN YOU';   Jeffersonville, Indiana. 10th November, 1963.
24.  Now there it is, scientifically, proof that it is the Truth, so therefore we don't worry about whether it's Truth; both scientifically, and spiritually, what was said come to pass. So, the Message of the Seven Seals, in their closing, that's the Message of the entire Bible. The Seven Seals closes the New Testament and sealed it up. That is true. Now, we know that that is, by prophetic utterance, by scientific, and by the Word. Three has give the witness to it, that it's the Truth.

[So, the message of the Seven Seals, in their closing ... that's the message of the entire Bible. The Seven Seals closes the New Testament and sealed it up. That is true. Now, we know that that is, by prophetic utterance, by scientific, and by the Word. Three has give the witness to it, that it's the truth.] Look at the testators: who revealed the testator?

"Adam"   - Testator of the 1st Testament 4000 yrs.
"Jesus"   - Testator of the 2nd Testament 2000 yrs.
"Wm. Branham"   - Testator of the 3rd Testament "50 yrs. & Unfolding"
"Moses"   - Revealed the testator 1st Testament
"Paul"   - Revealed the Testator 2nd Testament
"Rev. 22:16"   - Revealed the Testator 3rd Testament.

REVELATION 22:16:  I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. Brother Branham had to leave the scene in order for the Third Testament to come of force in the Third Coming. It didn't have the strength that It needed until the testator left the scene.

[The ministry of the Third Testament has revealed the testator. Crucified and indicted the World for it. The testator died and now we have agents in the Earth letting the Wife know that She has benefits in this Third Testament now.]

'THE TOKEN';   Jeffersonville, Indiana. 1st September, 1963.
274.  He only recognizes the Token. That's the Message of the hour! That's the Message of this day! That's the Message of this time! In the Name of Jesus Christ, receive It!

'THE DEITY OF JESUS CHRIST '   Jersonville, Indiana. 25th December, 1949.
48.  There is a difference between reason and God's Word. God's Word is true; reason is false. You can't reason out nothing. That's right. Our mind is not (See?), is not good enough or never will be, to fathom God's eternal wisdom. And therefore, you can't reason it; you just got to believe it.

[Amen, notice how the spirit of the Lord searched out Apollo and the different ones and put them in the correct Coming of the Lord.]  Acts 19; Amen. Receive the correct Coming and you'll receive the Baptism of the Holy Ghost. [John's Message changed three times in six months. - 1.  The Messiah is Coming; 2.  The Messiah is among us; 3.  Behold the Lamb of God. Be ready to hear and move forward at all times and quickly.]

[Ed. Note. Bro. Glen Kegley is now speaking].

Recognize your Day and Its Message and everything will be okay.  [Amen, give me the Revelation of Jesus Christ and I'll accept it all the time.]

48.  There is a difference between reason and God's Word. God's Word is true; reason is false. You can't reason out nothing. That's right. Our mind is not (See?), is not good enough or never will be, to fathom God's eternal wisdom. And therefore, you can't reason it; you just got to believe it.

'THE FLASHING RED LIGHT OF THE SIGN OF HIS COMING';   Jeffersonville, Indiana. 23rd June, 1963.
88.   ...we see the national condition; we see the political disturbance; we see the church situation. We preach on all that. But this is something new. It's something is not very popular to be spoke on, but it must be done, for there's got to be a voice crying out.

[But this is something new! Not very popular but it must be done.]  We are the voice that's crying out something new. We're not crying out something old, but it something that's altogether different than that of the Mess-Age groups.

THE VOICE OF THE SIGN;   Beaumont, Texas. 13th March, 1964.
48.  If the voice comes, the same old voice of the same old... You see a sign, rather, and the sign that the man is doing is the same old school of thought, then you can say right then, "That didn't come from God", if it keeps identifying the same old school of thought. It never did. It never has. It would be against God's program.

49.  It's got to be something new. It's got to be something that the people don't understand. Or it wouldn't be sent. It don't need to be sent, if the same old school of theology. It's got to be something different, yet it's got to be identified in the Word, that it is for that day. See, the positives of God's Word, it has to be that. There's no slip-ups to it. It's got to be the Truth; got to be vindicated by God, the Truth. And the man who speaks it has to be vindicated of God, to be a seer from God, or it's wrong;

[He said I fell in a deep hole. I say amen. A black hole and passed right through time into a New Universe. Did you fall in the hole with me?]  If he's not a seer sent from God, then he doesn't have anything new for the people.

'THE INVISIBLE UNION OF THE BRIDE OF CHRIST';  Shreveport, Louisiana. 25th Nov. 1965.
196 to 201.  What did He do? He opened up the Seven Seals of the last Message. You notice that? The Seven Seals, which, all the mysteries of the seven church ages was sealed with Seven Seals. The reformers didn't have time to do it in their days. They didn't live long enough. But this blessed revelation of the Seven Seals, it's open to us in this last days, from a prophecy that went forth to Arizona.

How I asked God, the other day, "What are You doing with me out here in this desert?"

Did you know Moses wrote the New Testament... or the Old Testament? He certainly did. First four Books gives the laws, everything; Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, and Deuteronomy. He wrote the Old Testament. To do that, he had to leave all of his associates and loved ones, and go into a desert.

Paul wrote the New Testament. That's right. He wrote Romans, and Romans and all the rest of It there, Hebrews and Timothy, and so forth. And to do that, he had to separate from hisself, and go down into Arabia, into a desert, for three years, get the revelation of God.

"Oh," you say, "how about Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John?" They were scribes that just wrote what Jesus did.

Paul separated, put the Word together. That's right. Well, then, look, if it taken that, and had to go to a desert, away from their loved ones.

Look at this now. He is giving you the answer to his question!!!!!!!!!

202.  Remember what, What Time Is It, Sir? How many ever heard it? Say, "Amen." Was it exactly right? Then we've got the revelation in this last days, for the Message of the Lord God to gather His Bride together. No other age has it been promised. It's promised in this age: Malachi 4, Luke 17:30, Saint John 14:12, Joel 2:38.  Those promises is just exactly like John the Baptist identified himself in the Scripture.

[Amen that is what prophets do - bring fresh kill to the eagles to feast on - are you enjoying it?] We have been gathered into one place.

268.  Oh, that spiritual union of Christ and His Church now, when the flesh is becoming Word, and the Word is becoming flesh, manifested, vindicated. Just what the Bible said would happen in this day, it's happening, day by day. Why, it's cumulating so fast out there, in those deserts, and things taking place, that I couldn't even keep up with it.

[Evil spelled backwards is live.
Eagles are the only bird that turns upward when storms come and he gets above the storm.
It was my desire to do these discussions and help the new ones coming into the revelation and to solidify the older ones in the depths of the truths.
"Third Testament Assembly". It has a ring to it.
The four beasts around the Throne are singing, "Holy, holy, holy" - Three Testaments.
We are in the Most Holy Place: Perfection.]
