For linux, RHEL dist

From a directory structure like the following

    /first/second/third

I want to go to /first

and then find all files that contain the word 'TEST.TEST'

What command would I use to do this.  Could someone please post an example?

The standard UNIX/Linux command for retrieving files in a directory tree is "find".  The man page will show its use.  It can run commands on the files it finds, so your usual text search command should be fine.
