The place where all your hopes, promises, and the desires of your heart can come to pass. I almost said come true, but then I realized that with Father all things are true: they just might not come to pass for everyone. Oh, don’t get me wrong, God is not a respecter of persons. He wants all of us to walk in our land of milk and honey. However, for those who are not a respecter of Love, how can they be powered by that which they do not know? One can not walk in the power of Father unless there be the willingness to walk in the clothing of His Love. Adam and Eve traded the Love clothing line in for the disobedience clothing line, and the truth of their land of milk and honey passed away from them.
The Body of Christ has matured now, and most of the members of the body, including you and me, have a great opportunity to walk at the level of Father. It hasn’t been easy getting to this point, and it has taken a long time in the process for it to happen, but I am so glad to have this opportunity along with many of you to go for it. I know I didn’t come this way as a Christian just to get to heaven. That was the main reason, but I want to have life, and have it more abundantly. There have been, there are, and there will be more members of the Body of Christ to come that will be happy just to make it into heaven one day off into the future. I am not guilty of that desire only. This walk has cost too much not to have all that Jesus died for on my behalf for me to have while here on earth. Speaking of here on earth, in John 10:10, the scripture says “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” Jesus didn’t die just to give us eternal life, but He also died to give us more earthly life, and to show this life to those that don’t know Him. Well, the truth be told, it appears on the surface for the most part that those that don’t know Him maybe living a tad bit better in the abundant area by the numbers. Father knows for many of you that He has your heart, and your joy. Now He wants your heart to have more than a happy hope of things to come: He wants you to have a “Happy Now”!
How do you get to walk with Father at the level of a Son as Jesus did back in His day? Most of us have already placed ourselves in position by our maturity in walking in the “word” already, and showing that we can move in the power of the “Holy Ghost” already. Then what is left? Jesus is left. Well what do you mean, Jesus is left?
In John 14:6, Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. First of all, one can not even get unto the Father until cleared by Jesus for entry into that level. This is not set up to keep you from that level, but to protect you until you are ready to handle the responsibility that comes with walking with Father. When you walk as a mature son with the Father, the trampoline is removed from beneath the high wire. There is no net to catch you when you fall; and when you fall, you fall all the way back to the floor in that particular area of activity. For example, Moses didn’t lose Heaven, but he lost the promise land; King David didn’t lose the trophy of the man after God’s heart, but he lost the right to build God’s house; Adam didn’t lose God’s fig leaf protection and covering, but he did lose his relationship with God to name all things whatever he would have them to be named; and we will not lose our salvation if we are blessed with the opportunity to come unto the Father, but we will lose whatever our hearts desire was at the time we chose to disobey Father. We know from Jesus that a son always does what it is that the Father wills, and not what it is that the son wills. In John 6:38 Jesus says, “For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.” If you are one of those that have to have your own will done when it counts the most, then I highly recommend that you mature more as an individual before you desire to walk at the Father’s level.
Now Jesus is not standing there WAVING those forward that qualify to walk with Father, but He is there PROCESSING those forward that qualify to walk with Father. Some will qualify, but in the end they can come up short in their walk with the Father if they are not powered by Love. First the qualifier, in John 1:1-3, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Verse 2, the same was in the beginning with God. Verse 3, all things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.” In order to walk with Father to bring His “will” to pass, you must first bring the “word” concerning that “will” to its fulfillment: you must do all you can with the resources you have while moving with the Holy Ghost to exhaust the word to its end. As stated in verse three, all things were made by the word; and without the word not anything will be made. Therefore, by the time you are ready to walk at the Father level, you will have walked in the word so much that if you were victorious in your walk, you will have a good chance to walk victorious with Father. Jesus will process you to the Father level at that point. The word can not come to pass until it connects with the times and seasons that are in the hand of Father. You may walk in the word to your death, but if you don’t walk the word into its time and season, well you call that working the word on commissions. You will eventually get paid for your work, but not today.
Next after the qualifier comes one of my favorite terms, and realizations: Powered By Love. The one thing that we learn as we process our walk in the “word” along with our movements with the “Holy Ghost” is how to love and be loved by one another. At times the “word” processes at a snail’s pace while the “Holy Ghost” hovers around patiently looking at the clock: you know that He’s always right on time! These frequent occurring patterns in the life of a Christian will make you love, and be loved by those around you: familiarity also tends to employ a greater level of tolerance allowing love to abound. The members of the body of Christ that are not ready to walk with Father will continue to develop toward that goal, but until then the body of Christ will provide all the processing needed to walk in victory. Jesus was giving the fullness of God from the beginning, so He can release that part of Father to us on our level until we mature enough to go to Father on our own. Most members of the body have chosen the path of keeping the trampoline underneath them vs stepping out to operate as a mature son at the Father level. Jesus has all power so He can provide for the body at this level until He returns. We need to have more members ready to leave the measured results within the body, and step up to the Father level where there is no limits: nothing but big boys out on this level.
This was so brilliant of God to set up the levels of power to accommodate each individual member’s level of growth, and maturity. Can you imagine a three-week old convert, and a twenty year seasoned member trying to feed at the same level. If the three-week old slips up, or a member that’s been slow to mature comes up short, Jesus is right there to comfort at the needed level. Now at the Father level, you rely on relationship. You have done it within the Body so many times, and experience the love that comes from victory so many times; it’s like Jesus just says to you, now go do this same thing with my Father, but do it without a net or trampoline. The rewards are much because the level of love required to succeed is greater than here safe in my bosom. Once you process a “word” to come to pass with Father, He expects you to do whatever it takes to be there representing that “word” in bodily form as Jesus once did until He shows up with the time and season to make it happen. You can’t look back at Jesus for help when out on this limb, you are the Son looking forward to finishing the work with Father in the way His Son always did with Him. Powered by Love with the Father simply means that you have come to know that no matter what hot spot you may find your self in, all is well. Like a surfer, you just tuck yourself in the funnel powered by the water, and you ride it on in: just tuck your self in the activity going on powered by the love, and you ride it on in! Your fruits of the spirit are so developed by this time that you can be patient 10 years without a sweat if that’s the time Father planned to be in your orbit with the time and season to make it happen. Powered by Love also means that you are at full faith in your maturity: while in the Body you showed Jesus that you were the Duracell Faith Bunny. You may have tried something 10 times, but because you are at full faith, you are ready with full excitement to move on it 10 more times if necessary: Elijah once checked for rain seven times, Elisha was upset at King for striking ground with arrows only three times, etc. All you know at this level Powered by Love is that it is going to come to pass, it’s just a matter of time. Be at full faith by keeping the “word” alive as long as it takes to manifest. And because you are so well-trained, you know to keep watch to see if the initial “word” that you have already exhausted, repositioned to stand more exhausting. And finally, being Powered by Love at the Father level means that you are at full trust: meaning that no matter what comes forth for you to eat from all those good fine people trees of the knowledge of good and evil, you are able to trust what came forth for you to eat from the tree of life as Father directed.
LIFE IS GOOOOD IN FATHER: IT’S POWERED BY LOVE!
