The Restoration Of All Things - Part 6
Summary of Sermon Spoken on 27th December 2012 by Pastor Donald Parnell, Dayton, Ohio. U.S.A.
We enjoyed the time together today looking at the revelation of the embodiment. It has happened again. It is my desire that every believer have a great year in 2013. Happy New Year to all and we believe this is another year of the Lord for us.
We are showing a World map in our Fellowship hall on the screen and talking about it. It is what is called a "dateline map". It starts with the international dateline and goes from there. The Evening Light in the West broke out into the New Day - crossed the international dateline and traveled again from the East to West in a New Day. ... traveled through the 'southern chambers' this time. Amen, I love that map of Brother Winston's how it was preached; it was so clear.
The fourth mystery, that of the New Testament Church as one body, composed of both Jews and Gentiles: Ephesians 3:1-11, Romans 16:25, and also Ephesians 6:19, Colossians 4:3. Look at that - the New Testament church as one body composed of both Jews and Gentiles. ..... What New Testament is that? The only New Testament that is preaching this is the Third Testament. The Second Testament groups are waiting on what we have.
Paul's Message is full of it but we will see why it was put aside by the Church and not accepted. There is a reason. We had two bodies and we united them together to be one in this Third Testament.
The Prophet closed and sealed the Second Testament. When it was closed there are a lot of things in there that people don't realize are finished. 1906-1956 the Pentecostal Church Age. At the 50 year Jubilee the interval period came in and the Prophet called them back to the Word. By the end of 1961 he had finished the revealing of the Seven Church Ages with the names and dates and Ages of the Church all in order. The Lord came down in his church and vindicated it on the back wall of the Tabernacle.
In March 1963 comes the Opening Of The Seals, the ending of the Second Testament, the opening of the Third Testament, and this New Testament brought the two bodies of Jewish and Gentile together. Revelation 10 united the Gospel and all the little covenants were finished and sealed away. Only one Lord now and that is Revelation 10.
The fourth mystery, that of the New Testament Church as one body, composed of both Jews and Gentiles: Ephesians 3:1-11, Romans 16:25, and also Ephesians 6:19, Colossians 4:3. When the Second Testament groups read that quote they are still waiting. We read it and see ourselves and understand that we are the New Testament with one body of God's Word, Revelation 10.
The Prophet said that Mount Transfiguration was the rehearsal. Moses and Elijah were not in flesh there and they will not be in their flesh here. But they are in flesh; it is Christ in the flesh of his believers. When the gospel was first preached it was preached as one body; Jew, Gentile, Greek and all. Paul was enjoining every race by the Blood of Christ, by the Word.
EPHESIANS 3:1 - 2: For this cause, I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you gentiles, if ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward:Paul's revelation was to the Royal Seed of Abraham which is in every race of people on the Earth.
3:3 - 4: how that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few Words, whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ).The natural seed-line of Israel took a spirit of elitism and said, "Only we can have it". That is wrong. We know this is the truth and all the Seed of God no matter what race will come into this Revelation. We have the same spirit of Paul and say to the Mess-Age groups, "Stop trying to exclude races of people from this Revelation".
3:7 to 10: Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power. Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; and to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: to the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,This is the prophet's thought on this. All men, the mystery of God unfolded. It is not a natural seed-line that draws the boundaries; it is the seed-line of the Royal Seed. In the Third Testament, one gospel, one door, one way, one life.
3:11: According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:The two, the manifold wisdom being one body. Now we see how he is setting up this mystery. The New Testament (Third Testament) Church has come to the revelation of one body for all races of people ... the blessing is the revelation of Jesus Christ in this Third Testament and nothing else is a blessing.
ROMANS 16:25 - 26: Now to him that is of power to establish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, but now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:Man's human spirit split up the people of God by race, by using the perverted gospel of separation.
EPHESIANS 6:19 - 20: And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.We eat on the flesh of the Testament. One message, Revelation 10, is the only flesh (Word) to eat on.
COLOSSIANS 4:3 - 4: Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which i am also in bonds: that I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.We are looking at the diagram of two bodies: three realms of Celestial within and three realms of terrestrial on the outside. We kept them separated and couldn't apply the New Birth to the right realms. This New Testament relates the two; unites them and brings them under the New Creation in the Kingdom of God. Celestial and terrestrial are working together as one now. It is not a separation ... it is a unification in this Testament.
We had to separate them out in the Second Testament to understand them and dissect them. Now in this testament we put them back together and watch them work properly under the operation of the Holy Ghost.
EPHESIANS 2:10 - 11: For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past gentiles in the flesh, who are called un-circumcision by that which is called the circumcision in the flesh made by hands;How do we get to the point that we have another parent rather than the natural relationship? Only the New Birth! ... Born Again to walk in the good works of my father ... the Spoken Word-body.
2:11: Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past gentiles in the flesh, who are called un-circumcision by that which is called the circumcision in the flesh made by hands;In time past - Gentiles in the flesh - but no more!! Notice it is always man that tries to separate us.
2:12 - 13: That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: but now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.Now we are Israel. We are flesh bodies that are true Israelite, Hebrew, the Royal Seed of Abraham.
2:14 - 15: For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;"... broken down the "middle wall of partition". There is nothing stopping you from uniting your bodies together.
2:14 - 15: For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;The Word (flesh) abolished "slavery". It abolished the enmity - all the reasons why you should be left out of the Body of the Lord - they have all been abolished.
2:16 - 17: And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: and came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.Politics is what causes class war, enmity of races, ethnicity issues, genocides ... agendas of hate and separation. The Mess-Age is full of politics.
2:18 - 19: For through him we both have access by one spirit unto the father. Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God;The citizens of the Third Testament Nation, though not geographical, is a nation without politics. The Lord has developed the leaders and the commonwealth.
2:20 to 22: And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; in whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: in whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the spirit.
COLOSSIANS 2:8 - 9: Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.Use philosophy and try to get you upset over the things of the world through jealousy and deceit.
2:10 to 17: And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: in whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ: buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. And you, being dead in your sins and the un-circumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; and having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days: which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.We are in the Eighth Day and Paul preached it to us. The Second Testament men looked to the philosophy and rudiments of the World. It separated the people. Now Revelation 10 has brought us back to one revelation. When the Word-man give the flesh-man a New Birth it is what the Gospel declares it to be. Melchisedec walking in the earth in a dust body, not sexed, but put together by the Spoken Word.
Here in the U.S.A. it is already starting out rough in economy and politics. Oh well, when you're poor, that doesn't affect you much. Everybody is upset about losing things. I don't have much to lose so it isn't affecting me much.
