I am trying to create a form and have url parameters passed to the form and have them populate fields on the form.
I have that portion working. Now I need some of the URL Parameters that are passed to be used within a text area.
URL Parameters that are passed:
Text Area will have this block of Text and I need to use there URL Parameters within the text.
When I call the form with the parameters the Text Area does not update the Text area with what was passed by the URL.

It is not possible to pass URL parameters to text fields in this manner. You would need to use a Text Area field, and conditional field update to allow for this.
Basically, you would have the URL populate text boxes with the variable text, then use a Text Area field to display the text. Since regular text fields to not work in conditions, the will not work for this set up.
Here is a quick test clone of your form pre-filled in the URL with a block of variable text:
You can clone the form to your own account if you would like to see the full set up:
