Connecting Terms of The New Message

Part 6 - The Twofold Terms

Summary of Sermon Spoken on 9th February 2014 by Pastor Donald Parnell, Dayton, Ohio. U.S.A.

I thank God for the house that he has given to me. It is wonderful. There are no flaws, no sin, no spot, wrinkles or blemishes: I won't allow anyone or anything in my house that will be a bad influence in it.
 
When you pass through a black-hole in the Universe you transcend time while passing through to the other side. If you can understand "oneness" you will never have a problem with the person of Christ living in flesh today. When a part of the tree is dead then the very best thing you can do is prune it off, don't try to make it live when it is dead. Trim off the dead and the living will grow more.
 
"When you allow the wrong people in your house stuff will come up missing like: love, joy, hope, faith, and kindness... (yes, people steal these things), peace and blessings."

MARK 3:25 to 27:  And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end. No man can enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.

It the human spirit rise up against itself - wrestling within with the carnal mind - that house will have a breakdown. Bind the human spirit with the Word-man and you will acquire the whole house.

LUKE 6:47 - 48:  Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: he is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.

Enoch built the Pyramid and when the flood rose in the Days of Noah, the pyramid stood and still stands today. You are the type with your "house". As it was in the Days of Noah, so shall it be.

I CORINTHIANS 6:19 - 20:  Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

In my father's "house" ... We have instruction that will keep our house standing. There were terms that the Prophet used near the end of his ministry that open up a clear understanding of the "twofold terms". Some of those terms were the "two books", "genes", "souls", "natures, "beings", "seeds", "births", "bodies", and a "dual person". He explained them thoroughly in his messages for us to catch what is happening. If you don't have two houses walking in the same space then you are not a part of the promise in John 14.
 
Let's review the positions of this "twofold person". I want to discuss this dual person at length and show how that these terms are the manifestation of a "twofold being". One fold consists of the earth and will die, and the other fold is God's own life, Zoe, that cannot die. Listen closely because this teaching is not brought to light by the clergy of the Mess-Age today.
 
We will be speaking of "the flesh-fold" and "the Word-fold". The flesh-fold of the old man is a perverted unit. It consists of body, spirit and soul on the outside. That outer part of the duality needs a New Birth to be delivered of that condition. It is the Book of Life. When a person is delivered, the Lamb's Book of Life is the "brand new unit", or the flesh-fold, of the New Creation. The soul is the character, the identity of the person. The soul reveals the type person you are. Soul and character are two terms of the same thing.
 
The "flesh-fold" receives the New Birth. The Lamb's Book of Life is the Spoken-Word-Body made flesh of the Word-man. The Word-fold puts on a New Coat. The person is in fact a New Creation of the "spirit-man" with its new character from Christ. The first book is a record of your sex birth life and the second book is a record of your Spoken-Word-Birth life. The Lamb's Book of Life is the book of the "New Creation". God always saw you in that book. He never saw you any other way, but as his son and daughter.
 
Your name cannot change in the "Mind of God". They are autobiographies of your natures and one is a carrier for the other. The carrier is to hide the inner man as the shuck hides the grain of wheat. The old flesh book pulls away from the seed upon maturity for the grain to mature. The two books are elected by the predestinated Word-man. The real you is the Eternal Word-man that wears both coats of duality for a season.
 
The Spirit-Man elected the piece of earth and gave it free moral agency just like God did at the start. We made the Fall and our earth had to come back to its upright position. The Word-man or Word-fold takes back the free moral agency from the flesh-man and remakes it ... the same way the entire global Earth was done, is exactly how your individual piece of earth was done. We are all seven dimensions in action right now.
 
I tried to teach in this message and stay calm. It's hard to do when it is so exciting.
 
"TWOFOLD BEING"

REVELATION BOOK OF SYMBOLS;  Jeffersonville, Indiana. 17th June, 1956.
54.  When the Holy Spirit comes into the heart, quickly He becomes then a twofold being: one of the earth to die; and one of heaven to live. Amen. In his body he's still subject to death; but in his soul he's passed from death unto Life.

So now we see that the Prophet taught us this. We have moved into deeper revelation in these areas.
 

THE TOKEN;  Bakersfield, California. 8th February, 1964.
119. When He said, "You must be born again." That don't mean jump up-and-down at the altar; that don't mean walk back there and shake hands with the pastor; that don't mean all this foolishness that we've seen done; it don't mean putting your name on a church book. It means DEATH TO YOUR FIRST BEING, AND LIFE TO THE SECOND BEING.

"TWO GENES"

THE INVISIBLE UNION OF THE BRIDE OF CHRIST;   Shreveport, Louisiana. Thursday, 25th November, 1965.
61.  As sure as your gene had to be in your father, before your natural birth, your spiritual gene had to be in God, because you're an expression of the attributes of His thoughts, before the foundation of the world. Right. No way around it. That's right. Now, now we notice, then, that Life being in you, God's Life being in you, from the foundation of the world.

Look at that! A natural and a spiritual gene: they met up by the actions of two fathers. The lust of eye, lust of flesh, pride of life is the "foundation of the world". We had a spiritual gene before that every came along. That Life being in you, God's Life being in you, from the foundation of the World.

COMMUNION;  Tucson, Arizona. Sunday 12th December, 1965.
49.  What was it? There was another William Branham. See? A little spot of ETERNAL LIFE DOWN THERE, FROM THE GENES OF GOD, THE WORD OF GOD THAT WAS PLACED IN THERE. Each one of you can think of similar things. See, It was working.

"TWO SOULS - TWO NATURES"

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERSConduct, Order & Doctrine book.  Jeffersonville, Indiana. 15th January, 1961.
157.  The soul is the nature of that spirit, that when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, It does not do nothing... You... IT CHANGES OR CONVERTS YOUR SPIRIT TO A DIFFERENT SOUL. And that soul is a different nature that's on that spirit. So the soul is the nature of your spirit. First you were mean, and evil, and hatred, and malice, and strife; now you're loving, sweet, kind. See the difference? It's your nature. I'LL CALL IT THAT. IT'S YOUR SOUL THAT'S BEEN CHANGED. THE OLD SOUL DIED, AND THE NEW SOUL WHICH IS THE NEW NATURE WAS BORNED INTO YOU.

I've entered where the Soul of man shall never die - Christ. The soul of the flesh-fold after the conversion will image himself after the character or Soul of the Word-man.

The different soul has a nature that images Christ.
 
"DUAL PERSON"

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS 1;  Jeffersonville, Indiana. Conduct, Order & Doctrine book. 23rd August, 1964.
942-96.  See, you're a dual person, three people in one, soul, body, and spirit. Now, I believe your outward senses, your soul from the--not your soul, but your outside conscience, your senses... When you're awake, in other Words, you're operated by five senses: see, taste, feel, smell, and hear. Them were only given you to contact your earthly home; and they were not given to you to contact your heavenly home. There's actually six senses in a human body, because he is number six in the Bible. He was created on the sixth day, and he is number six--a man is. And he's got see, taste, feel, smell, hear, and faith. His faith sets his destination.

A dual person - three people in one. The flesh-fold has three realms and the Word-fold has three realms.

AND HE'S GOT SEE, TASTE, FEEL, SMELL, HEAR, AND FAITH. HIS FAITH SETS HIS DESTINATION.

Man has six senses - the sixth one is "faith" - notice what he said, "He puts faith in the human unit". The human fold has faith and it is extraordinary. How do we operate this? When the need arises you will! You have the Mind, the Body, and the Spoken Word to do exactly as you need. You control the elements. They do not control you. It wasn't there until my faith put it there. The keys weren't in Sister Lisa's purse until her faith put them there. The knife I pulled out of my pocket on this message was at home on my office desk and I pulled it out and held it up.
 
"TWO BOOKS - PREDESTINATION"

INVISIBLE UNION OF THE BRIDE OF CHRIST;  Shreveport, Louisiana. 25th Nov., 1965.
206.  Life is a sacred thing, to God, and it's recorded in a book. God is the author of life. Do you believe that? Our natural life here, we have, is just a perversion. It really should be the right life, to begin with, but it's perverted by the natural birth. The first life, or your first union, you were joined in at birth, by nature, a natural act. A natural human being associated, man and woman together, associated together in sexual affair, which brought your first life here, and that's associated with sin and death. How can you miss seeing the serpent's seed?

How can you miss seeing the 'serpent's seed'? The Prophet was clear - the 'serpent's seed' is the natural birth affair. All that come by a sexual affair are 'serpent's seed' and the only way out is the New Birth that gives you a Body in the right act of faith.

WORKS IS FAITH EXPRESSED;  Shreveport, Louisiana. 26th November, 1965.
119.  "The two books of Life." It's the same Book, but one of them was your natural birth, the other one is your spiritual birth. One leads out to the other one, just like a stalk of wheat. Whenever you talk to me, you talk to me as a living person. But there's a part of me here, is that person, that must perish. That's the Book that the name comes off of. But the Eternal one, the Predestinated one, the Elected one, the name never can come from there because it was always on It. It can never be taken off.

The Book of Life is the natural birth to the natural death. It continues in-between those two times. The Lamb's Book of Life reveals itself at your New Birth and you find out that you were on that book all the time. Your name was always there.
 
How was your name transferred? It wasn't in the Mind of God where it was transferred! Your name was always on the Lamb's! It was transferred in "your" mind, when you changed down here.

COMMUNION;  Tucson, Arizona. Sunday 12th December, 1965.
44.  The two Books being One, the Book of Life. The first Book of life coming up, was when you were born, that was your natural birth. See? But then one time, way back down in there, there was a little grain of Life as I was explaining to some of the young sisters at the house this afternoon. See, there's a little grain of Life laying there, that you wonder, "Where did It come from?
 
45.  "William Branham, well, forty years ago, the William Branham, it isn't the same one tonight." If somebody back there would say, "William Branham, he was a rank rascal," see, because I was born of Charles and Ella Branham. In their nature I was a sinner, I came to the world, a liar, and all the habits of the world laid right in me. But down in there, too, was another Nature present, see, predestinated, was in there by God. In this same body, see, two natures in there.

Look at that. Perfect Revelation - down in there (you).
 
"TWO SEEDS"

JEHOVAH JIREH 1;  5th July, 1962.
36.  We are Abraham's seed if we are in Christ. And then if you are Abraham's seed, you have the same faith that Abraham had, 'cause it was his faith that we're talking about. Especially in the church now, it's the royal seed of Abraham. There was TWO SEEDS of Abraham. One of them was the natural, Isaac; the other one was Christ, the promise. Israel was blessed; through Christ, he become the father of nations. See? So the royal seed, how much greater that would be than the natural seed of Abraham. So if you are in Christ, you have a super Seed, a super to what Abraham was, because you come by the royal Seed, Christ. If you are dead in Christ, then are ye Abraham's children, and you have Abraham's seed and Abraham's faith. And Abraham's faith was in God's Word regardless of what took place.

The blessing of "Joseph". Everything he did was blessed of God and all around him prospered from his gift. Flesh-fold has to have a New Birth and the Word-fold gives it.
 
"TWO BIRTHS"

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS 1;  Jeffersonville, Indiana. Conduct, Order & Doctrine book. 23rd August, 1964.
945-Q-243.  That's what makes a man a new person, is because he's born again, reborn. His first birth brings him a natural man on earth; his second birth brings him a spiritual man of heaven. See? It changes him, his soul, not his outward conscience, his outward being, his senses; he still feels, and smell, taste, and hear; but his inward parts, his desires, what motivates him, has been changed to God.

All the Prophet is saying here is that you have a second birth and don't have to go back into the earth or your mother's womb in this birth.

INVISIBLE UNION OF THE BRIDE OF CHRIST; Shreveport, Louisiana. 25th Nov., 1965.
222.  When you're separated from your first union by spiritual death. Now, you are borned again or remarried again to the new spiritual union of, not your natural life of the things of the world, but of Eternal Life. That Germ that was in you at the beginning, found you. Now, your old book is gone with your old union. Now, your name in your old 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. Now, your name is now in the new Book, not in the Book of Life, but the Lamb's Book of Life. What the Lamb redeemed, not the old book of your natural union, but you're 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.

Paul said, "When it pleased God to separate me from my mother's womb (or from my natural birth)." That germ that was in you at the beginning, found you. Listen to this closely.
 
The Word-man takes away the free moral agency for a season until the flesh-man unit is converted to the point of change. Just like God did Adam. He took back the title deed to the earth and kept it in his hands. When you learn responsibility and 'learn' the Love of God, then your life really changes; then the Word-man hands you back the title deed and says, "Go and write another book".
 
You were always on the Lamb's Book; it was in your mind where the change took place. Now, your name is now in the new book, not in the Book of Life, but the Lamb's Book of Life. What the Lamb redeemed ... not the old book of your natural union ... but you're New Bride. Hallelujah! Your new Life is in the Lamb's Book of Life ... your Marriage Certificate (hallelujah!) ...here your True Eternal Germ from the beginning takes hold.
 
"TWO BODIES"

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS 1;  Jeffersonville, Indiana. Conduct, Order & Doctrine book. 30th August, 1964. 1156-56.  Notice, a mother, she can be ever so mean and cruel, but just before that baby's born, there's a certain kindness that sets in. Did you ever notice a mother when she's to be mother? There's something sweet about her; she always takes on that sweetness. It's because that little angel, little spirit, a little messenger to this little tabernacle is ready to come forth into the world. And then, when this little angel comes into the body (That's a little angel of the earth, a spirit that's ordained of God to take this body.), then that baby has to have a choice. It makes its decision. Then when this takes place, then you see the Angel of the Lord now comes in here which is a spiritual body, that eternal.

The Eternal Body was always there and when the appointed time comes he begins to express Himself.

1156-58.  This is a dying spirit in a dying body; but now, you can't be in two bodies at one time, but THERE CAN BE TWO NATURES IN YOU AT ONE TIME. Now, the nature of the Spirit of the Lord... When you're borned again, you're not borned of physical, like the baby was; but what's happened, the spiritual birth has come to you. And while this spiritual birth is growing into your heart, of God, there is a physical or a celestial body growing to receive that spirit. And when the life leaves this body, it goes to that body. Just as when the body is presented to the earth, the spirit comes in, and when the spirit goes out of the body, there is a body waiting. "For we know that after this earthly tabernacle be dissolved, we have one already waiting." See? That's it, the spiritual body of the people.

Look at how Brother Branham tells us we can't be in two bodies at once; and then he tells us in the next few sentences that we are in fact in two bodies, a natural body and a spiritual body. And while this spiritual birth is growing into your heart, of God, there is a physical or a Celestial Body growing to receive that Spirit. When the human spirit leaves this body, then the Celestial Body will take all the memory and move on.
 
I never even mentioned the two rivers, the two trees, the two cities, and on and on.
 
The natural Book of Life is the flesh and blood person who was birthed into an animal life, within the blood, and is a carrier that is associated with sin and death. It is an animal life perverted in natural birth of the Old Creation. It is not the Life of God, for we know you can't pervert the life of God. This life come from a sex birth, a sexual affair. And this life is a natural life that has an end fades away, pulls back and drops into the ground as the shuck does from the grain. It is not an actual book written in ink. It is a life, a nature that is recorded, or lived in the temporal realms of natural time. The two vines. (sister thenea: Two women in the field; one taken, the other left. Yes, amen; two in the field, two in the bed, two grinding at the mill.)
 
There is a dimension that records all things. What has technology taught us? The fourth dimension is a record of everything! Tape recorders, vcr's, dictaphones, radios, televisions, satellites, computers, palm pilots, telephones, cell phones, pictures ipads, ipods, kendals, tablets and on and on. These things connect us to the fourth dimension and are firm proof that there is a dimension which is catching everything and recording that life or nature. The Prophet called it the ether waves, (today's Internet), and he said that the actual voice of Jesus is still traveling in those waves and we could hear it if we had the right receiver to pick His voice up; (thank God we do)! Thank God we know his voice - "real time".
 
The fourth dimension is the record of your books! So when we read in Revelations 20, concerning the books being opened, it is just saying that our books are recorded in the fourth dimension. That dimension is a vivid record of a person's life. When we are living here in Earth, our book is open and playing what we are in those books. Rejoice over the fact that the record of your natural book in the fourth dimension is wiped away. Voices are annihilated in the sea of forgetfulness. When we came, it was a blank white page - our record fills up quickly. What is your book filling up with now?
 
Jesus Christ is a magnet that can remove all the data, all the ordinances and the written record against you. When we were washed in the Blood-Word, it made our pages clean. Think of the concept and it is amazing. An example is like Marilyn Monroe: she can never erase what she did, every picture, every move, every color, every word spoken, every time she dressed immoral, every act she committed immorally with men, was recorded and before her in this natural Book of Life. The dust returned to the grave as promised and the spirit faced the consuming Fire of God. The natural life finishes and an account of its actions are swiftly administered.
 
Remember, the fifth dimension is unrest and a natural man is full of unrest. So we see the fourth and fifth dimensions associated with sin and death. A believer's natural book has an end to it. However, the believer has representation of Eternal Life. The Representation within continues on as it is an Eternal House that never sinned and cannot die.
 
The Prophet shows us that God didn't keep the old book as its purpose is not Eternal. Not the old book of your natural union, but your Life that created the Lamb's Book is the Eternal. Now we see that our New Life does not come from the old book, or Book of Life. It comes from the True Eternal Germ called the Word-man. This Life has a record also.
 
The old book recorded in the fourth dimension, connected to the earth-man, hell or Hades, is done away with and forgotten by God, (man likes to dig around in those old graves but God doesn't). Once the grain is matured and the old shuck is dropped back to the earth it is never in His mind again. God does not harvest the shuck or any other part of the natural book.
 
Where is the Lamb's Book of Life lived and recorded? Is there a dimensional record? Everything in the Sixth Dimension is the Word record. The Sixth Dimension is the Life of Christ and its records of time are recorded in the fourth dimension. Every thing that we are is recorded in the realms of time, which is the fourth dimensional record. And that is why the Prophet said, "It's really just one book and the natural part fades out and goes away". Whereas everything in the Sixth Dimension is the "Word record". Writings across the chest of ladies' shirts and things is to arise lust in people: writings across the backside of women on the hips; it is for the lust to arise in men's hearts.
 
The fourth dimension is the picture, the photo still shot, of our Theophany, Word-Formed-Body wrapped in terrestrial flesh and blood. The record of our natural book in the fourth dimension has an end. The new updated book, the Lamb's Book, ends in the flesh-fold too. "The Word formed Theophany" living in the Eternal dimensions carries the memories and experiences of those books.
 
There we are, Eternal Beings that slowed down enough to get a good picture of our character and image by the fourth dimensional record flashed like a video or camera. Our Theophany is living, with a live voice, moving in the Sixth Dimension. That's the body that will never be judged, because it is the Word. We will always keep the understanding of contrast from this realm and we can then always enjoy our Eternal Person. Look at this quote; it's good:

CHRIST IS REVEALED IN HIS OWN WORD;  Jeffersonville, Indiana. 22nd August, 1965.
63.  They're going to find out someday that they're not seeing a hundred and fifty million years of light space either; they're going right around in a circle. That's exactly. You're going to find out one of these days that when you go to heaven, you don't fly off somewhere else; you're still right here too, just in another dimension faster then this. Right through this room's coming color. Every color shirt, dress, whatever you got on is eternal, laying right on records, going around and around the world. Every time you bat your eyes, it's right on record. Watch, television will prove that. When you're born, God sets a record on. Put a record on, it don't make much noise for a little while, you know; that's the little baby till it comes to accountability. Then the noise starts. He starts saying things and doing things he has to answer for. Then when that life ends, that record or tape is took off and laid in the great big library.

A light year = travel at 186,000 miles per second for one year - that is a light year ... 186,000 miles per second for 365 days, 24 hours a day. They're going to find out someday that they're not seeing a hundred and fifty million years of light space either; they're going right around in a circle. That's exactly. You're going to find out one of these days that, when you 'go to heaven', you don't fly off somewhere else; you're still right here too, just in another dimension faster than this. Put a record on, it don't make much noise for a little while, you know; that's the little baby till it comes to accountability. Then the noise starts. He starts saying things and doing things he has to answer for. Then when that life ends, that record or tape is taken off and laid in the great big library. "Responsibility" brings on the true record.
 
There is an Eternal and a temporal. The Eternal is in the Sixth Dimension. They started out in one mind, the Mind of God. One Book of Life temporal, and another called the Lamb's Book of Life, created by the Eternal. They started out intertwined looking like one book at the natural birth. When manifested they are indeed two separate lives; two books. In the end the old temporal book is folded and it comes back to one book. It is in the Word-man's memory. The Lamb's Book of Life, starting at the Day of Pentecost, continued through the duration of the Church Ages. The Son of Man Age furthered the Church into the Rapture, and the Bride Age displayed her beauty on Sunset Mountain. Then we returned from the Cloud and entered the earth again in a return ministry that has matured us into the king/queen manifestation of Christ in Son of David form.
 
We came here from the Word-Body to learn about the Word-Body and how glorious and wonderful it is. When we go back into the Word realm altogether, we will be so thankful every day to have returned to the full walk of the Word-Body without this flesh on us. We learned what eternal and all of its attributes really are.
