Connecting Terms of The New Message
Part 3 - The Age of Maturity
Summary of Sermon Spoken on 30th January 2014 by Pastor Donald Parnell, Dayton, Ohio. U.S.A.
Since we started this series of messages on, "Connecting Terms Of The New Message", I have been reading, listening and preaching. I've realized something made clear by the Angel's direction. When someone with a vision can unlock all the parts and pieces of the different ministries, ages, dispensations and all the things that transpired, it is a great picture.
I am enjoying the new series so much. "Connecting Terms Of The New Message". The book that I carry to the pulpit is a book with blank, white pages, no lines or anything. When I look at it my mind stays blank and lets the Holy Spirit lead me. We will be breaking into these terms and looking at what these terms did and are doing for us in our day. I like to write the scriptures of Donald Parnell. Paul wrote to his group and I write to mine.
HEBREWS 5:12 to 14: You have need to be taught again the importance of a new message; your need is milk, and not strong meat. When you cry for milk you are unskillful in the Word of the hour: it's because you are still an infant suckling. Strong Word is for those who aged to full maturity. Ones that experiences have developed their spiritual senses to discern all things.We still find people wanting to follow the Second Testament oracles and it doesn't work. We have need to teach them the Word of the Day.
We have a group of people who are skilled in the strong Word, and there is a people who are still needing to step into the New Day. The "Bride Age" was a one man ministry. We are not there anymore. William Branham's ministry changed from a Church Age ministry to the prophetic ministry of Revelation 10:7 ... and a new attribute was unfolding. His status change from Church Age to "Prophetic Messenger"; also quickly changed the status of the believer from Church Age to Bride Age Revelation. One of the first things that happened was the move of the Spirit took him into the change from a partial revelation to a full and complete revelation of the entire Bride Body.
When the status of the leader changes, it quickly changes the status of the believers with that leader. The body follows the head.
The "Bride Age" was a one man ministry enjoining the Bride to the Husband. It had matured the Prophet William Branham. The wave sheaf united the field with the farmer.
The preparation had been evident through the Elijah ministry of Malachi 4 after the Church Ages. That Elijah ministry led up to the new door opened at the revealing of the Seals in March 1963. It was a new ministry coming on the scene. The Seventh Angel uses terms that we will look at for a few minutes to understand the change of form, en-morphe, into the New Age of maturity in the Son of David reign.
Terms relating to the "age of full maturity" are terms such as the Fullness of the Gentiles, the Body Ministry, the Son of Man ministry, the Bride Unit, the All in All, the complete, the Bride Time, the Bride Tree, the Light-upon-Light age, the whole Seed, the whole of the Omega Sevenfold Revelation, seven course menu, and "full Word birth". These terms relate to the Wife of Christ receiving her understanding and rising up from dead denominationalism.
She raised into an age of full maturity, which couldn't happen until this age. In the prior ages the believers rose to the level of revelation and understanding given, but there was no complete Bride Tree coming forth in the whole Seed. When the mystery was finished in the prophet of Revelation 10:7 then the ministry began to unfold in the Fullness. The Prophet finished the mystery and delivered us into the understanding of the full Word. Yes, we did meet the Lord in the air (air is interpreted "spirit") Restoration isn't Fullness until it is complete.
It is just terms. There is no first and no last in Eternity ... it just keeps working in cycles.
"THE FULL WORD"
THE SEED IS NOT HEIR WITH THE SHUCK; Jeffersonville, Indiana. 18th February, 1965.
We passed through the veil of the Church and entered a Bridal Relationship and we saw the significance of the Day. This day let's us see our "full Word strength". What we became at the Opening of the Door in 1963 was prophecies taking on maturity. The growing was needed and apparent, but the Promise was sure. The Bride Age entry and our Age of Full Maturity needed something more than the Church Ages had produced. Please do not take me wrong here. The Promise, the prophecy, the strength and stamina were all given to us at the Opening of the Seals, but the mind had to develop into the authority.
The individuals through the Seven Church Ages received an individual Birth by the Message of their hour. Their New Birth made them Hebrews, redeemed in the earth-body. Their flesh-man became subject to the Theophany as witnessed in Martin Luther when he stood and declared, "Here I stand, I can do nothing else". Their New Birth brought their earth-bodies subject to the Theophany within while dwelling in this dust. David was anointed by Samuel as king, but he needed the experience and maturity to take the authority of the throne.
IT IS THE RISING OF THE SUN; Jeffersonville, Indiana. 18th April, 1965.
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.We actually are immortal and nothing can stop us in the form we are in now. The Theophany makes us Holy Ground even as the burning bush made Mount Sinai Holy Ground. When the Theophany is finished with the earth-body then it will leave it. This earth-body can't die until the Word-body leaves it. When we leave the earth-body it becomes as it was before. No man takes my life, I lay it down when I'm done with it. It is no longer Holy Ground even as Mount Sinai is not Holy Ground now.
The thought here on the "Age of Maturity", takes in several terms under its umbrella and we want to open a Door of revelation to those terms. The ministry can take these pieces of perfect truth and dig deeper into the well of Life for their respective areas. People do not even believe there is a body of the Lord revealed yet.
"BODY OF THE BRIDE"
DESPERATIONS; Jeffersonville, Indiana. 1st September, 1963.
Back to the Word, because the messages, and the messages, and the messages has to wind up in THE ENTIRE WORD. And in the last days, the Seven Seals being open, was to pick up every straggle that's been left off in it and make the whole thing in ONE GREAT BIG BODY OF THE BRIDE, that them who lived back there was not perfect until this church be perfected, the Bride group in the last days, to bring them in and ALL together be taken up.Look at that - "all together be taken up" - Sunset Mountain.
The immaturity and lack of understanding was fading quickly. We entered a Door that removed the veil of ignorance in a short quick work. A Bride Age had opened and it was an introduction into the male/female relationship. The Son of Man Attribute bridged the move of the Holy Ghost by a Prophet in flesh, and Christ used him supernaturally. Christ, in the Redeemed Body of William Branham, opened the Seals raising us to the "revelation of Full Maturity". What you are hearing about that age now from these messages is what the Prophet was seeing as a one man ministry fresh in his vision. Yes, the revelation is in the heart.
"THE NEW MESSAGE"
GOD'S ONLY PROVIDED PLACE OF WORSHIP 28th November, 1965.
"THE WHOLE UNIT"
THE TOKEN; Jeffersonville, Indiana. 1st September, 1963. 82. The substitute, a Life of Jesus Christ has to come into you, which is the Holy Ghost, God's Token, that you have accepted the Blood of His Son, Jesus Christ. 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. THAT MAKES TOGETHER THE WHOLE UNIT FOR THE RAPTURE.The whole unit for the Rapture!
"THE COMPLETE - THE ALL-IN-ALL"
THE UNVEILING OF GOD; Jeffersonville, Indiana. 14th June, 1964.
Then when this fades out, then, like John said, "I must decrease, He must increase," then ALL-IN-ALL comes into Him. He is fully manifested, through Luther, Wesley, and Pentecostal age, and on down, on down. He is fully manifested, you see, come down, just the manifestation, God unfolding. See Him now, notice, fulfilled in His promises for this day, as they had."THE WHOLE SEED"
THE MASTERPIECE; Jeffersonville, Indiana. 5th July, 1965.
THE SEED IS NOT HEIR WITH THE SHUCK; Jeffersonville, Indiana. 18th February, 1965.
"DELIVERED OF A NEW BIRTH"
BIRTH PAINS; Phoenix, Arizona. 24th January, 1965.
Jesus was in a Spoken-Word-Body - male/female relationship and that is how His Words were Spirit and Life. The Children of Jesus are Spoken Word. It is not "two halves"! This revelation is a "whole".
We matured experiencing the identification of the Body while 'eating on the seven course meal'. Have you ever seen a child as it begins to recognize its body parts and its senses and functions of itself? It is amazing to watch their expressions and actions as they are maturing through those processes. The child is not adding to his stature as a body, but that child is developing the functions necessary as the body grows into its age of full maturity. Discovering our "body" was an amazing part of my life in the Revelation. We don't add to the stature of Christ ... can't add ... just develop the functions of the Body after the Birth.
We don't add a third eye, or a third ear, or nose or arm. We don't add a second head. We develop the body we are given.
"LIGHT-UPON-LIGHT AGE" - "THE WHOLE OF THE REVELATION"
THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST; CHURCH AGE BOOK; Chapter 1. Intorduction.
. "The whole of the revelation"!!!! Look at you. We have come through the "Full Word Birth" and we have the complete understanding of Christ's return. We completed His Second Coming and quickly unveiled the Attribute of Wife to reign as Queen over the Earth. We are in the Third Coming of Jesus Christ and truly we have fully birthed the Sonships of God into the Earth. The Son of God, the Son of Man and the Son of David manifesting in the Earth now as we fulfill our part of Sonship in this Third Coming.
Look back at the age, the ministries and things that you came out from, and rejoice in thanksgiving for all that the Lord has moved us into. The last slide is a picture of what the native American Indians called, "the passage of life".
There are stages that you pass through and mature in that realm, and then you move into the 'egg' or the 'seed' again and start maturity again. We come through all these passages of the gospel - Church, Bride, Queen, Wife, King and Sonship.
The Native Americans knew that the first authority was the vegetation, the second authority was the animals, and the third authority was the humans, and these three authorities ruled and developed the spiritual senses. We have moved through the passages of earth and now we are resting in the highest authority in the Heavenly Places. This is the Third Pull. Now we really can take this Earth through the purging because our piece of earth is already purged. We can call for the Earth to follow us now.
Christ Jesus' piece of earth was completely whole - He called for His Seed to come out of the fallen Earth and what did we do? Our earth-body followed the calling of the Head. Now we are calling back the Earth to its upright position. I remember my elders saying that Brother Branham had changed; he had, for some reason, had left the anointing of the Lord. The healings weren't there, the miracles were subsiding ... because they went there for the loaves and the fishes. I looked and I saw something greater happening. Elihu, it is time for you to speak now. Elihu, the Word made flesh in the days of Job after the denominational men were finished talking.
HEBREWS 5:12 to 14: You have need to be taught again the importance of a new message; your need is milk, and not strong meat. When you cry for milk you are unskillful in the Word of the hour: it's because you are still an infant suckling. Strong Word is for those who aged to full maturity. Ones that experiences have developed their spiritual senses to discern all things.The doves have passed through their windows. We grow eagle feathers because we are eagles ... we don't try to put on eagles feathers.
I will give you all my praise, for you alone I long to worship, you alone are worthy of my praise.
The year of rejoicing and thanksgiving.
