Connecting Terms of The New Message
Part 12 - Terms For Our Day - 3
Summary of Sermon Spoken on 16th March 2014 by Pastor Donald Parnell, Dayton, Ohio. U.S.A.
So Elijah and Elisha crossed over the Jordan together. While in the Cloud on the other side Elisha asks for the 'double portion'.
II KINGS 2:8-9: And Elijah took his mantle, and wrapped it together, and smote the waters, and they were divided hither and thither, so that they two went over on dry ground. And it came to pass, when they were gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha, Ask what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away from thee. And Elisha said, I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me.
2:12 to 14: And Elisha saw it, and he cried, My father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof. And he saw him no more: and he took hold of his own clothes, and rent them in two pieces. He took up also the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and went back, and stood by the bank of Jordan; and he took the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and smote the waters, and said, Where is the LORD God of Elijah? And when he also had smitten the waters, they parted hither and thither: and Elisha went over.The chariot of "Israel". And the "horsemen" thereof ... there were men on those horses! Angels; Sixth dimensional men, Israel, the ones carried up. Sunset Mountain with Elijah and Elisha. Elisha came out of the Cloud with a twofold mantle ... a twofold being. The mantle is the Message and he smote the waters (people) with the Message and they parted too. We accepted the twofold being.
14. And he took the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and smote the waters, and said, Where is the LORD God of Elijah? and when he also had smitten the waters, they parted hither and thither: and Elisha went over.Elisha crossed over and had to go back into the Earth from the Cloud and live his Message. Elijah said, "If you see me when the catching-away happens, then that is a sign that you have a double portion". We saw the change!!!!!
14. And he took the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and smote the waters, and said, Where is the LORD God of Elijah? And when he also had smitten the waters, they parted hither and thither: and Elisha went over.
LETTING OFF THE PRESSURE Green Lake, Wisconsin. 18th May, 1962.
So he took his robe and throwed it over him. He must've took it back. He was baptized (You see?), with the spirit that was on Elijah. He had one portion. He was called to be a prophet. Then when he went to Jordan with him, and he crossed over Jordan with one portion. When he come back he had two portions. Glory to God. When the Holy Ghost comes upon us today, you get one portion. When we cross the Jordan of death and come back in the resurrection, we have both a spiritual body and a physical body raised with Him.Catching Elijah, William Branham, is just one portion of the 'double portion'. When you go to the Cloud and return with the Commission and Revelation of your Day, then you have a 'double portion'. You understand that you have a Word-man and a flesh-man. The Word-Body awakens you and you are physically changed ... spiritually and physically perfect.
The second ride: this language is taken from the prophecies of William Branham. I'll ride this trail again ; we'll ride this trail again ; and, she'll ride this trail again ! Where did we come back from to make a 'second ride'? Paul had two journeys in his ministry, and William Branham had two in his ministry. Now we are the continuation of that 'second ride'. We'll ride this trail, she'll ride this trail ... remember the chariot was for "Israel". We are the continuation of those journeys. My father, my father - two Elisha calls.
HAGGAI 2:3 to 5: Who is left among you that saw this house in her first glory? And how do ye see it now? Is it not in your eyes in comparison of it as nothing? Yet now be strong, O Zerubbabel, saith the LORD; and be strong, O Joshua, son of Josedech, the high priest; and be strong, all ye people of the land, saith the LORD, and work: for I am with you, saith the LORD of hosts: according to the Word that I covenanted with you when ye came out of Egypt, so my spirit remaineth among you: fear ye not.70 years in Babylon - 7 decades - 7 'Church Ages' in the wilderness. Haggai is in the return after the Ages. The Second Glory is at rest!
4-5: Yet now be strong, O Zerubbabel, saith the LORD; and be strong, O Joshua, son of Josedech, the high priest; and be strong, all ye people of the land, saith the LORD, and work: for I am with you, saith the LORD of hosts: according to the Word that I covenanted with you when ye came out of Egypt, so my spirit remaineth among you: fear ye not.The Lord is reminding them of their origin.
2:6-7: For thus saith the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; and I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts.All nations - shake every true nation of God. A 'nation' is a person. The King is over his nation. I will fill the nations ... each house with my glory. There are no nations outside of Christ; they are not recognized.
2:9: The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.My nation is full of peace.
The Joseph Ministry: this term came to identify the ministry that came after Elijah. It holds the 'double portion' in this day ... a 'double portion' of the Resurrection-both Word-man and flesh-man. The Joseph Ministry is the blessing of the Son of David upon the believers. The blessing of Joseph made the deserts bloom and the Earth brought forth its seed in multiple portions. Joseph matured into the Son on the Throne, ruling the entire Earth. Joseph and Elisha are two ministries alike.
The Joseph Ministry is our ministry. The Third Testament is the Joseph Ministry. We have taken his Word ... walking in his mantle. We grew up with the 'double portion' on us.
William Branham driving tacks with a .22 rifle at 25 yards. Joseph took the same rifle and the same sights and drove tacks at 50 yards. .22 rifle - the Mind of Christ ... there are 22 collective nerves to the mind.
The Joseph Ministry is the blessings of the Son of David. We are the Joseph, the Elisha, the Solomon, the Christ. In, "Works Is Faith Expressed", the Prophet saw a young minister in chains trying to get out of those chains. Brother Branham was going to help him, but had to help others in bondage. When he turned back to look at the young ministry, he had gotten out of those chains ... the Joseph Ministry.
When William Branham died at the crash he had put Joseph in the car with Billy Paul for a while. Billy Paul = old ministry ... and Joseph had to ride in the car with the old ministry for awhile. That is what we did. When the wreck happened, then Billy Paul locked Joseph in his car and told him to sit there. He went to the wreck and Brother Branham and his wife were dead.
Somehow little Joseph unlocked that car, and got out of the car. He came to the wreck and screamed out, "Daddy"; and Billy Paul said that William Branham raised up his head. The Joseph Ministry raised the head (the Son of David). William Branham looked and said, "Tell Joseph everything is going to be alright". Amen. He was personally talking to you and me!!!! He laid his hand on his wife and raised her from the dead. Joseph came to operate the Voice of God. Amen. That is what we are doing in the Joseph Ministry.
The backside of the ages: we now know where we are at in the Day, in the dispensations and in the Scripture. We are on the backside of the Ages. This term was created to help people grasp the truth that we crossed the Veil and stepped outside of the Church Ages into a New Day, a New Message, after the Opening of the Seals. We crossed over to the backside of the books.
DANIEL 9:1-2: In the first year of Darius the son of Ahasuerus, of the seed of the Medes, which was made king over the realm of the Chaldeans; in the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the Word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.Daniel read Jeremiah's book; he realized that his prophecies were finished and he knew he had to go beyond Jeremiah or die in Babylon.
9:3-4: And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes: and I prayed unto the LORD my God, and made my confession, and said, O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments;Just a few years ago I recognized the same thing that Daniel recognized. I knew we had to move from the walls of Babylon or die. The time had been accomplished under William Branham's Ministry. I went back to the books and did what the Angel told me to do; I found my correction there. I saw what Daniel saw.
9:3-4: And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes: and I prayed unto the LORD my God, and made my confession, and said, O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments;... God moving on the Seed of the Age. Look at Haggai, Daniel, now Nehemiah next. They were all moved on by the Spirit of the Lord Jesus.
The ministry of the thunders: with the sets of Thunders in the First and Second Testaments fulfilled, I knew we had to differentiate ourselves from those even though we are connected. We needed to pick up our Day and our Message ... to see the new set of Thunders sounding. A Third Testament Ministry in the Earth ... that was no longer a mystery and much more than seven
. Men in different parts of the kingdom of Babylon and the Holy Spirit moving on them when they weren't even living together across Babylon. Look at it today: all across the Earth, the Ministry of the Thunders moving and placing the Seed.
NEHEMIAH 1:11: O Lord, I beseech thee, let now thine ear be attentive to the prayer of thy servant, and to the prayer of thy servants, who desire to fear thy name: and prosper, I pray thee, thy servant this day, and grant him mercy in the sight of this man. For I was the king's cupbearer.In the middle of all that war (just like today) God raised up people who brought the spirit of the Lord for their day and hour.
2-3: Wherefore the king said unto me, Why is thy countenance sad, seeing thou art not sick? this is nothing else but sorrow of heart. Then I was very sore afraid, and said unto the king, Let the king live forever: why should not my countenance be sad, when the city, the place of my fathers' sepulchres, lieth waste, and the gates thereof are consumed with fire?God was changing things. You have to have a special character to be a cupbearer, the drinker of new wine, to ensure that there was no poison. Nehemiah was Mark 16 in action.
2-3: Wherefore the king said unto me, Why is thy countenance sad, seeing thou art not sick? this is nothing else but sorrow of heart. Then I was very sore afraid, and said unto the king, Let the king live forever: why should not my countenance be sad, when the city, the place of my fathers' sepulchres, lieth waste, and the gates thereof are consumed with fire?I know that Babylon is not my dwelling place; if I were in it, why shouldn't I be sad? We have moved!
Our millennial reign: I realized that the long awaited reign of Christ as Son of David was missed by the people following William Branham, and there was no way to show them that he ushered in this Reign. I knew after the Ages the Reign of Christ was to be in His Redeemed subjects as Son of David in their Throne. The interpreted reign of politics, religion and economics was false teaching. The ushering in of the Reign of Christ has happened.
The people in the third day: we entered the Third Day and we are the True Israel. The Prophet cried out that this is the Third Exodus , the Third Pull, the Third Coming ... and we have entered these things. We are not looking for a Third Day, we are in it. This term was created to help us understand that we are the people Hosea and the Prophets spoke of in their Word.
HOSEA 6:1-2: Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up. After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight."Raising the Son of David". After the intercession and blood as Son of God, the raising of the Son of David occurs in the Third Day.
6:3-4: Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the Lord: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth. O ephraim, what shall I do unto thee? O Judah, what shall I do unto thee? For your goodness is as a morning cloud, and as the early dew it goeth away.In Noah's Day it was the end and the beginning, depending on which side of the Ark door you were on.
4. O ephraim, what shall I do unto thee? O Judah, what shall i do unto thee? For your goodness is as a morning cloud, and as the early dew it goeth away.Morning dew, morning cloud ... Good morning. The son is raising us up.
The people in the Third Exodus: ... we know that the prophet spoke of the Third Exodus. The issue was that everyone was looking for one to happen in the future. I started this term to help us all define ourselves and realize that the Third Exodus had been formed and we are the people who transitioned and translated into this Third Day. It is among us now and we are the manifestation. We have to eat the present message or we will never move on.
THE THIRD EXODUS Jeffersonville, Indiana. Sunday 30th June, 1963.
298. This great angel of the covenant! "Jesus Christ, in the form of God, thought it not robbery, but become equal with God." Now he's a Pillar of Fire, in the same form that he was back there, bringing that first exodus, bringing the second exodus, and here he is with the third exodus.The father/son relationship: the reason I emphasized this term is to help believers understand the twofold being. The father = the Word-man, the Pillar of Fire Sixth dimensionally within. The son = the flesh-man, the converted human spirit within and together in the New Birth this relationship is in perfect harmony. It is the dynamics and mechanics, the husband and wife, and the former and latter rain. Equality of the flesh-man/Word-man while the Word-man is in the flesh.
When I'm wearing the coat, it is a part of my every movement. When I take it off it does not move with me any longer.
Shape-shifting: this is an old native American term and way of life. It is what we today would define as forming or casting a different image. It is what Christ has done all the way through the Ages, shape-shifting from the lion, ox, man, and eagle. I used this term to wake us up to what we are doing. We moved from lamb to lion, from Son of God to Son of man and to Son of david. Shape shift? We do it all the time and as a Body of the Lord. From lamb to lion, from Son of Man to Son of David.
Shape shifting ... amen, Brother Edston. Yes, when people get angry at you over your Message you can even disappear! Mutants, transformers. The forth dimension technology always follows what we are doing. Shape shifted from space ships to shuttles.
The male/female manifestation: the male was the dominant attribute in the First Testament. The female was the dominant attribute in the Second Testament. I created this term to wake us up to the truth that we have changed, merged, shape shifted and entered the male/female relationship of Christ, with both attributes on display. It is a great explosion of Word in dynamics and mechanics breaking the veils.
THE WAY OF A TRUE PROPHET OF GOD Jeffersonville, Indiana. 13th May, 1962.
THE FUTURE HOME OF THE HEAVENLY BRIDEGROOM AND THE EARTHLY BRIDE Jeffersonville, Indiana. Sunday, 2nd August, 1964.
170. You think that little noise out here in Tucson was something, when He opened the Six Seals, that shook the country around about, and caused the talk. Wait till this earth receives her baptism!
THE WAY OF A TRUE PROPHET OF GOD Jeffersonville, Indiana. 13th May, 1962.
The collective nerves of the Mind of Christ have gathered all the information and data and we have processed it. It all adds up to the Third Testament, the Third Coming of Christ.
