Raising the Son of David

The Power of God Has Quickened Us

Summary of Sermon Spoken on 30th June 2013 by Pastor Donald Parnell, Dayton, Ohio. U.S.A.

My freezer part of the refrigerator quit working and everything was going to ruin. The cost of the refrigerator and the foods would have been in the hundreds. I laid my hands on it and prayed saying, "Lord, we are so close to the Haiti Meetings and I can't put the money into a new one of these. Please fix it for me so I can use all the money possible for the Haiti, Caribbean, mission work." The freezer started up and has been working fine now for over two days. I want to thank Him and testify of His works for me. I prayed for a washing machine one time and it started working again and ran for years. I always praise God for what He does for me.
 
A man told me that the Lord is not concerned with machinery and he didn't believe in those type of things. That it was just a coincidence. I said, "Well, I know that a man lost his axe head in the lake while he was working and needed the axe to finish the job. Elisha took the axe handle and cast it into the water and the axe came to the top of the lake and swam to the axe head and they picked it up out of the water and continued to use it. I am a believer that God cares about all that we do and need."
 
Yes, this is the New Testament after the Old and the New are finished. Who named the Bible, who named them Testaments? Who said, Old and New, who? Who named it the Holy Bible? It is men of God who God deals and speaks with, always. And still today He is doing the same thing. Brother Joseph spoke up and said, "I still have the same testimony today". The Lord blessed Joseph and let him see the Angel of the Lord that deals with me.

MATTHEW 1:1:  The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.

The Son of David is "a generation" - it is a people that receive the King in every age they lived in. We are the generation. Time is not a part of this "generation".
 
There is no branch on the tree that looks the same. The original life will flow in every original branch but they all look different ... many fruits according to the season. Justification, sanctification, restoration, full Word ... it all depends on the season. It is the rising of the "sun". What "Son" is rising that the prophet cried out, "It is the rising of the sun". Son of man, Son of God were setting in the west. The Son of David was rising. We are raising the Son of David. We lifted up His emblem and His Word.

'IT IS THE RISING OF THE SUN'     Jeffersonville, Indiana. 18th April, 1965.
6.  Five o'clock this morning, my little friend with a red breast flew up at the window and woke me up. Seemed like his little heart would burst, saying, "He is risen." I've always thought of this little bird as being a friend to me, because I like him.
 
7.  As the legend about him says, "A little brown bird saw Him suffering on the cross, where sin had placed Him." Of course, the little bird had no sin. He didn't have to die for the little bird. "But he flew into the cross and tried to pull the nails out, with his little beak, and he got his breast all red." And that's the way I want mine, too, as a shield, of trying to protect this glorious Thing that He died for.

What did Jesus die for? Is the Earth and the other life forms really out of sorts and out of cater? Or is it our focus and angle that we are looking at things?

'MARRIAGE AND DIVORCE'     Jeffersonville, Indiana. 21st February, 1965.
89.   ...Then, we find now that everything "in the beginning" was running in perfect order and harmony with God, nothing was out of cater.
92.  Everything in heaven is still in order; all the stars, the galaxies, the solar system, everything is perfectly in order. One of them move, it would interrupt the whole program.

Maybe it is just us that dropped into a different cycle and it makes everything look different for a season.

'THE VOICE OF THE SIGN '     Beaumont, Texas. 13th March, 1964.
10-11.  ...That's all power, knows all things, in all places, and knows the end from the beginning. If He doesn't, then He isn't God. So there isn't nothing really out of cater. It's us. But nothing in God's Word; it's ticking just like a clock. And when that hour comes for it to happen, the Word that's allotted for that age, it happens. We might think it go... isn't going to happen. Sometimes it happens and we don't know it.

The Word allotted is going to take care of Itself ... and there is nothing that is going to stop It. Jesus Christ already took care of what got out of order. Maybe it is all taken care of! Maybe at the time of the Prophet's Word things changed and we are catching up to that. When we catch the light of a nova striking the Earth, that light is already millions of years finished. Watch where the "raising of the Son of David" began to take form.

'IT IS THE RISING OF THE SUN'     Jeffersonville, Indiana. 18th April, 1965.
8.  ...I would like to call your attention this morning to a picture that sometime ago was taken by the camera, of a vision that I had here at the tabernacle, of leaving Indiana, to Arizona; where I was to meet, in the form of a pyramid, seven Angels. Not knowing what would happen later, when I got there, thinking it was the end of my life, that no one could stand the blast; and I'm sure all of you are acquainted with the story. And then in Sabino Canyon, one morning like this, while in prayer, there had been a sword placed in my hand, and said, "This is the Word, and the Sword of the Word."

An observatory took a picture of the "vision"; visions are "real". January 19, the event of the sword in Sabino Canyon, and March 8, vision on the mountain ... and yet he talked like it happened together. It did! You don't spot time into eternity. This Third Testament is so amazing that it just keeps unveiling more and more.

8.  ...would like to call your attention this morning to a picture that sometime ago was taken by the camera, of a vision that I had here at the tabernacle, of leaving Indiana, to Arizona; where I was to meet, in the form of a pyramid, seven Angels. Not knowing what would happen later, when I got there, thinking it was the end of my life, that no one could stand the blast; and I'm sure all of you are acquainted with the story. And then in Sabino Canyon, one morning like this, while in prayer, there had been a sword placed in my hand, and said, "This is the Word, and the Sword of the Word."

'The sword, the Angels, the earthquake were over one year apart and yet in, "What is the Attraction on the Mountain?", the Prophet makes it sound like it was just a few moments between each happening.

9.  Later, the Angels appeared as was prophesied. And at the same time, a great cluster of Light left where I was standing, and moved thirty miles high in the air, and around the circle, like the wings of the Angels, and drawed into the skies a shape of a pyramid in the same constellation of Angels that appeared.

The cluster of Light went up from William Branham into the Heavens. We met on Sunset Mountain and then went into the air for the marriage of the Wife to the Son of David.

12-13.  And so there He spoke to me, and said, "The Seven Seals will be opened. The seven mysteries, seven-fold mystery of the Bible, that's been closed up since the foundation of the world, will be revealed." And we, yet a humble little group, compared with all the world, we've enjoyed these blessings, a hearing those mysteries. Marriage, divorce, serpent's seed, all these different questions, has been completely revealed to us, not by man, but by God, Himself, that's opened those seven mysteries; of what the Church was, how It was in Christ at the beginning, and how It would be revealed in the last day.  And now, as this went up, we have the picture outside on the plaque. But, then, I have the picture laying present here, if you notice, as Life Magazine had it. But I wonder if my audience, visible here, has ever really looked at the picture, see, see, in the way it should be.

Not by one man, but by God! Raising the Son of David is a ministry of many gifts, peoples and ministers all across the Earth.

13.  And now, as this went up, we have the picture outside on the plaque. But, then, I have the picture laying present here, if you notice, as Life Magazine had it. But I wonder if my audience, visible here, has ever really looked at the picture, see, see, in the way it should be.

We are the audience that has looked at the picture right!

15.  Well, if you'll turn the picture like this and look, you can probably see it from the audience, it's Christ. See His eyes looking here, just as perfect as it could be; wearing the white wig of Supreme Deity and Judge of all heavens and earth. Can you see His eyes, nose, His mouth? Just turn the picture from this, the way they had it; this a way, the way it's supposed to be. And you... Can you see it?
He is Supreme Judge. There is none other but Him. And that is a perfect identification again, a vindication that this Message is the Truth. This is the Truth. It is true. And making Him not a third Person, but the only Person!

Look at the return of the Lord, in the form of a Body!!! Eyes, nose, mouth, hands, feet, face ... my goodness, what are they looking for!!!! It is Him.

16.  With the white, see, you see the dark, His face, His beard, and His eyes. And notice, He is looking... From Him comes this Light shining on the right hand side, to which He's looking to.
23.  Now, my text this morning, I want to take for a text: It Is The Rising Of The Sun. And for a subject, I want to use, "the quickening Power."

Text: "Raising the Son of David" - Subject: "The Power has Quickened Us"

40.  The first time the sun rose, in Genesis, it was bringing a message that there will be life upon the earth, mortal life. 41 But this time, when the sun rose, there was a dual sun-rising; another, Son, rising. It was the... not only s-u-n rising, it was the S-o-n had risen to bring Eternal Life to all God's promised Seed that by foreknowledge He had seen laying upon the earth.
41.  But this time, when the sun rose, there was a dual sun-rising; another, Son, rising. It was the... not only s-u-n rising, it was the S-o-n had risen to bring Eternal Life to all God's promised Seed that by foreknowledge He had seen laying upon the earth.

The Gospel of Sonship travelled horizontally across the Earth as the sun travels across the Earth. Son of Man rose up in Adam and finished in Jesus. Son of God rose up at Pentecost and finished up in the Seventh Messenger. The Son of David is raised up now to unfold.

42.  No more could the botany life lived back there at the beginning without the s-u-n to bring it to life; no more than, today, when sons of God is upon the earth, it takes the S-o-n Light to bring them to Eternal Life, His chosen ones that He knew before the foundation of the world. He had chosen them in Himself before the foundation of the world.
43.  And on Easter morning, then, in this dirt somewhere laid our bodies at that time, for we are the dust of the earth. And in Heaven, there was a Book of memory, and His attributes was in Him, knowing that because this Son of God raised, It would also raise to Life every son that was foreordained to this great time. He knew it would be. And what a more glorious sunrise that was than it was at the beginning, at time when it first dawned. Now, on this great breaking of the Easter Seal!

Our mothers ate and made our natural bodies. The mother (Word-body) eats to make your character of the Word-man.

69.  And if your spirit that's in you is reckoned dead, and you are anointed with the Life that was in Christ, is upon you! Romans 8:11 said, "If the Spirit that raised Christ from the dead, dwells in you, It also quickens your mortal body," that same Life, them same powers, them same beneficiaries, that He had here on earth, from God. He redeemed you, a Seed that was foreknown by God, whose names was put on the Lamb's Book of Life before the foundation of the world.

Look at that closely. Every benefit Jesus had after the Resurrection - you have now!! The Inside Man is so healthy and strong; it is great and can't die ... that It is keeping this flesh-man in good health too.

73 - 74.  On Easter morning, not only did He raise, but His beneficiaries raised with Him. They were in Christ at His crucifixion. They were in Him at His resurrection. We are His beneficiaries, quickened after being dead in darkness. The darkened world of unbelief, where churches and denominations, and so forth, had drawed us out.

After the Church Ages ended, we are the beneficiaries, the benefactors of the Son of David ministry.

76 -77. Now, them who were once groping in darkness and wondering around, if they should wash feet on this day, or if they should keep a certain day, or do a certain set of rules, all those things passed away. For, there was a glorious resurrection that defied every man-made thing that man had ever done, every man-made reason. There had never been, to that time, a man that could lay his life down and pick it up again. He defied that scientific proof they had, by raising again.

The Resurrection put us in association with Angels. Jesus reincarnated Himself in us and Angels can use our body to get a message across at any time.

94 to 96.   As Christ was the first One to raise, from all the prophets, and so forth; although typed in many places, He was the First-fruits of those that slept. In the Bride, coming of Christ, coming out of the church, there'll have to be a Sheaf waved again in the last days. Oh, my! Waving of the sheaf! What was the sheaf? The first one that come to mature, the first one that proved it was a wheat, that proved it was a sheaf.
Hallelujah! I'm sure you see what I'm talking about. It was waved over the people. And the first time there will come forth, for the Bride age, for a resurrection out of dark denominationalism, will be a Message, that the full maturity of the Word has turned back again in Its full Power, and being waved over the people, by the same signs and wonders that He did back there.

William Branham was the first fruits of the Son of David ministry and we are the "more to come" now.

96.  Hallelujah! I'm sure you see what I'm talking about. It was waved over the people. And the first time there will come forth, for the Bride age, for a resurrection out of dark denominationalism, will be a Message, that the full maturity of the Word has turned back again in Its full Power, and being waved over the people, by the same signs and wonders that He did back there.
 
111.  And as He, being the Groom, the Bride has to come forth, 'cause It's part of Him. And It can only be the manifestation of the fulfilling of all the revelations any others has spoke of the Bride; It can only manifest. If it does something different from the Groom, it isn't the Bride. Because, She is flesh of His flesh, bone of His bone; Life of His Life, Power of His Power! She is Him!

We have looked narrowly upon this devil and proved him to be a simple man ... not even a creator ... doesn't even have a Theophany. Whereas, She is Him!!!!!!

124 to 126.  Oh, my! The predestinated One, of course, like the Seed laid upon the earth, the One that had Life in them. Many of them were dead; they were just rotten seed; the waters and things burnt them out. But, you know, there was a Seed laying there ready for Life. God knowed It was laying there.
Now, the predestinated Ones are the first to be quickened by the Holy Spirit, for the Holy Spirit comes to claim Its Own. Now, this is deep now, and be sure to catch this good. Now, as the sun was sent across the earth, not to bring rocks, which was dirt also, to life, it was not to bring all the dirt to life, but was to bring the part of the dirt which was enclosed around a life.

Look at that!

127.  Not all man will receive Christ. Oh, no. But those which God foreordained Life, is housed around some of the dirt of the earth, that's the One He comes to quicken. They're the Ones.

Your dirt is quickened!

141.  And God knows! Hallelujah! He's got a predestinated, foreordained Church! He knowed He's got sons and daughters, and a Bride, waiting somewhere; when the Holy Spirit begins to fly over it, that wave Sheaf. Oh, my! He's the same yesterday, today, and forever. Not some mythical story, but a reality!

Your dirt loves this Third Testament; the Word-man quickened the dirt around you. Your dirt is Holy Ground!

149.  ...All at once, Something screamed, and you looked down here and It was the Word. See, It quickened your... You said, "No more shorts for me, no more liquor for me, no more lying, no more stealing, no more this, that." See? The Spirit that raised Him from the dead, dwelling in you, will also bring your mortal bodies, the dust of the earth, into subjection. You see? What is it? Subjection to what? Christ. Who is Christ? The Word. Not the theology, but the Word!

See how your dirt changed!!!! You had a body change. Eternal Life will pull you out!!!!

156.  Therefore, your body is the temple of the Dynamics, because (why?) from the beginning you are part of the Mechanics. Oh! There is your resurrection. There is the Church in the resurrection, with Him. These bodies right now are quickened. See, you've heard; you believe. It changed you from a denomination to the Word.

When your body was Baptized with the Word for the Hour, there is your resurrection. You changed from denomination to the Word!

213.  It changed them. It quickened them. It made them different. They were a changed people, from then on. It quickened them, from an old life of being a coward, to like the Lion of the tribe of Judah. They absolutely faced martyrdom, nailed to crosses, crucified upside-down, burnt, throwed in the lions' den. No more cowards, about them. Death had no victory over them, at all. The Dynamics was in the mechanics. Yes, sir. It quickened their mortal body.

The Son of David generation is the Eternal ones ... been here all along.

225.  The quickening Power wasn't only in their soul, but It was all over them. It... Not only the Dynamics come in, to quicken, but It quickened the mechanics. You see what I mean? They were so quickened till their tongues begin to speak in another language. They were so quickened by the Power of the resurrection of Christ, until they laid their hands... They were so quickened with quickening Power, till, when they laid their hands upon the sick, they got well. "It quickened your mortal body." They were healed, by laying on their hand.
 
240.  Now notice this quickening Power, Zoe, bringing the Word, the mind that was in Christ was in you then. I'm trying to show you, that, you, when you raised. When God raised Jesus from the dead, He raised up you, also. And also quickened to Life, with Him, you are now quickened to Life, although then you were but an attribute in His thoughts, but God had saw all in Him, at the finish, see. When God looked down upon the body...
 
242.  But, remember, He went there with you in Him. See, God had never separated the Bride from the Groom, yet. So when God looked down upon the body of Christ, He saw both male and female. It was all redeemed in that one body. See? They are one, same, same Word. The same Word, spoke of the Groom, speaks of the Bride.

"This Body" is not "that" old body ... but is wearing a Glorious Body like His own Body.

246.  Like the Pentecostal experience today, and the coming of the Holy Ghost in this last days, as promised, is like the abstract to a title deed.

Just believing is not enough. You must move into owning, ownership!

247.  Now, you can get a title. Sure. See? You can get a title to a place, but that still don't say it's yours. No, sir. Somebody way back yonder could come in and put a claim on it. But when you get an abstract, that shows that everything that's ever against it is struck off, plumb back from the foundation. Is that right?

If you have the Holy Ghost, the Word for the Hour, then you have gone beyond believing, you've moved into ownership of that Property! A man told me one time, "I believe in St. Luke 17:30". I said, "That is the difference between you and me. You believe in it; but I am St. Luke 17:30."

248.  And when a man has said that he believes the Word, and then when the Holy Spirit comes, It is the abstract to the title. And that gives you permission, when you have that abstract, that every bit of that belongs to you, and everything is on it belongs to you. Amen! And that gives us the abstract, when the Holy Ghost comes upon this title deed that God saw back yonder 'fore the foundation of the world, and put it name on the Book of Life; but was born through a man and woman, and subject to sin, and guilty of sin. But when I believed on It, I received the deed; but when the Holy Ghost come, It was the abstract that everything against me, whether my mother done it, my father done it, my grandmother done it...

This is a Spoken Word Body! It is not living from the blood of Leamon Parnell. It is the Blood-Word of God.

248 - 249.  And when a man has said that he believes the Word, and then when the Holy Spirit comes, It is the abstract to the title. And that gives you permission, when you have that abstract, that every bit of that belongs to you, and everything is on it belongs to you. Amen! And that gives us the abstract, when the Holy Ghost comes upon this title deed that God saw back yonder 'fore the foundation of the world, and put it name on the Book of Life; but was born through a man and woman, and subject to sin, and guilty of sin. But when I believed on It, I received the deed; but when the Holy Ghost come, It was the abstract that everything against me, whether my mother done it, my father done it, my grandmother done it...
Like the little, epileptic child I prayed for, a few minutes ago, that come through from the grandparents. The epilepsy fell down, and upon the child, I said.

All of the genetics of the sexual human instrumentality has been struck off for me!!!

250.  But when the abstract has come, It struck off, omitted everything. I'm a abstract holder then. Amen! And as sure as the Spirit that raised Christ from the dead, I have a abstract deed that I'm part of that Body, with the abstract of the Holy Ghost making that body of Word live out just exactly like It did in Him, as He promised in the last day. The abstract! All my sins are struck out, all your sins are struck out, by the Blood of Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost is come as an abstract to the title deed that God give me by grace, by foreknowledge.

I have the genetics of the Royal Seed of Abraham and I hold their genetics in my body. Look at that! Make the Word Body live in me just like His lived in Him. Oh, realize that you are the owner of your property, your flesh now. It is yours to plant and grow and eat from. Enjoy it in the 'second ride', in the Third Day. Oh, I thank God this is not the intelligence of a man. This is the Quickening Power of God.

307.  Look what we've seen in this day. The Quickening Power has come to us, to open the Seven Seals. What was that, the intelligence of a man? No, the quickening Power of God. See, the quickening Power of God foretold this would take place. See, the quickening Power of God made the world testify to It, it's the Truth. The Angel of the Lord, I told you, was around, in a Pillar of Fire; quickening Power let the world testify that It's the Truth. And, in that, they didn't know what It was; and we knew, just look this a way, and It's our Lord up there, you see.

Time is just a fleeting moment. Grass fades away and on the same day ... this generation of David continues on. Eternity is not spotted by time. I see no "spot" in thee. "I see no "time" in thee."

307 to 309.  Look what we've seen in this day. The Quickening Power has come to us, to open the Seven Seals. What was that, the intelligence of a man? No, the quickening Power of God. See, the quickening Power of God foretold this would take place. See, the quickening Power of God made the world testify to It, it's the Truth. The Angel of the Lord, I told you, was around, in a Pillar of Fire; quickening Power let the world testify that It's the Truth. And, in that, they didn't know what It was; and we knew, just look this a way, and It's our Lord up there, you see.
He is the One Who opened those Seals. He is those Seals, for the whole Word of God is Christ, and Christ is the Seals that was opened. What is the opening of Seals then? Revealing Christ. ... And the very seven Angels, which represented the Seven Churches all completed, and we couldn't even see It. They did, they took the picture, not us. And there He is, standing there, Supreme Judge; showing that He is Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. What identification! Quickening Power did that to us.

Look!!!! "Did that to us" - Quickening Power formed us into the Cloud and took us into the Heavens to meet our Husband.

310.  Quickening Power lets us see His coming. Quickening Power snatched us from death to Life. Quickening Power gives discernment; to know what's wrong with you, and what to do; what you have done, and what you ought not have done; and what you should have done, and what you will be. Quickening Power, all these things!

June 11 - Our first meeting, the first preaching in our little building was on July 4, 2004. "Full maturity in the Resurrection". Every little thing matters. God uses it all ... the dates, the times, the locations. We are in Ohio, which means the Upper Heavens; and Ohio has 88 counties. The Upper Heavens of the Zodiac has 88 Constellations. This hunting ground is the Upper Heavens, the "Third Heaven". The angels are before the throne crying, "holy, holy, holy" - 1st, 2nd, 3rd Testament ... Body, Spirit and Soul: everything is Holy now. It is Holy Ground.
 
Amen, the Lord moved in prophecy - a Word of Knowledge to us in this service. The prophecy will come forth in a few minutes as they worship.
 
Amen, as David, all I wanted to be is a doorkeeper in the House of the Lord ... to stand at the entrance and welcome you in. We are believers here, you don't have to worry.
 

248.  And when a man has said that he believes the Word, and then when the Holy Spirit comes, It is the abstract to the title. And that gives you permission, when you have that abstract, that every bit of that belongs to you, and everything is on it belongs to you. Amen! And that gives us the abstract, when the Holy Ghost comes upon this title deed that God saw back yonder 'fore the foundation of the world, and put it name on the Book of Life; but was born through a man and woman, and subject to sin, and guilty of sin. But when I believed on It, I received the deed; but when the Holy Ghost come, It was the abstract that everything against me, whether my mother done it, my father done it, my grandmother done it...

On Sunset Mountain, standing there looking at us, was the crowning of the ministry of Jesus Christ our Groom - the Son of David.
 
God bless and good day to all. Pray for our meetings in the Caribbean's and also for Brothers John and Mita in Australia.
 
The following Word of the Lord in Prophecy came at the end of the meeting ...
 

"I AM GOD AND I MADE EVERY ORGAN IN YOUR BODY TO FUNCTION THE WAY IT DOES. I CREATED YOU IN MY IMAGE. I WALKED ON THIS EARTH AND NOW YOU WALK ON THIS EARTH AS ME, FOR I DWELL IN YOU.
AND YES, IT IS A GREAT MYSTERY. IT'S A MYSTERY THAT MEN DON'T WANT TO ACCEPT. THEY DON'T SEE HOW THAT INSIDE FUNCTIONS, BUT YET THEY KNOW IT DOES. THEY DON'T SEE HOW I - GOD, AM DWELLING IN YOU AND I MADE EVERY PROPHET. I GAVE THEM THEIR VOICE TO SPEAK. I GAVE THEM THEIR VOICE TO DO WHAT THEY WILL AND WOULD FOR ME.
AND NOW YOU, HERE IN THIS EARTH, WALKING BEFORE MEN FUNCTIONING AND DOING MY WILL AS PROPHETS, AS PRIESTS, AND AS GOD ALMIGHTY! AND THEY DON'T WANT ME. THEY TURN IT DOWN. I SAY, I WILL DESTROY THEM THAT'S NOT OF ME, FOR ONLY THING THAT WILL STAND IS ME.
AND THEY MUST COME IN AT THE DOOR. THEY MUST COME IN THE ENTRANCE THAT YOU HAVE ENTERED. IT IS THE THIRD COMING SON OF DAVID REIGNING. AND THEY MUST, THEY MUST SURRENDER. THEY MUST LAY DOWN THEIR MAN-MADE IDEAS - THE THING THAT THEY WANT TO SEE, AND REALIZE THAT IT'S GOD - THAT IT'S ME IN THE EARTH, SAITH GOD ALMIGHTY.
AND I HAVE USED YOU, DON PARNELL. I HAVE USED YOU TO SHOW THE PEOPLE THE ENTRANCE, SAITH GOD ALMIGHTY!"
