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.

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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
