Walking in the fullness of the God Head requires generations to fully accomplish. It started back with Jesus and the Apostles. Adam and Eve ruined the original plan through their disobedience when they ate of the forbidden tree. Up to that point, God could just speak his will, and Adam would fulfill it. Every thing was measured in Adam at creation that allowed him to just walk with God in the cool of the Garden. God could just say to Adam, name the animals, and whatever the name should be, Adam already had it in him to correctly name it. We lost that connection with God, and we have been rebuilding it ever since.
How have we been rebuilding this relationship? It’s been done over a lot of time, and it’s been done bit by bit. The scripture that best describes it to me is in Isaiah 28:10. It says, “For precept must be upon precept, percept upon precept; line upon line; here a little, and there a little.” The Body of Christ has been building, and maturing each phase along the way since its birth. The soul of man is the big key in walking with Father because it is where the will of man resides. The soul is such a key because it is the one thing that we have freedom of choice. What you do must be of your own free will.
It takes something to give your soul completely over to the will of God. Even Jesus cried out in Gethsemane to his Father to see if there was another way: his soul was exceeding sorrowful, even unto death. What was Jesus purpose here on earth? Yes, to die: not my will, but your will be done. The thing that Adam, and Jesus both had in common is that their souls were free of sin. You, and I will have to allow the process to bring us to a place where our soul at all cost can say to the Father, not my will, but your will be done. Adam soul was free of sin because there had been no sin prior to the eating of the fruit. Jesus of course, was free of sin. You and I had our sin debt paid in full by Jesus, so when the Father looks upon us, He sees the righteousness of his son.
The format to walk in the fullness of the God Head is still as I stated in the previous posts: receive the word, apply the power, and replace your will with his will. There are different developmental stages that the Body of Christ has gone through to reach maturity. Jesus got it all started. The word always leads the way so that we know the will of God. Once you have the word from God, then the Holy Ghost will move on that word to move it along in the process. Here you get an idea of how to walk in the full ness of the God Head. You have two of the God Head working together in the oneness of the one God. Remember, Jesus who was all God, told the Apostles do not go out until you receive the promise of the gift: the power of the Holy Ghost. The word along is not enough: you must apply the other powers of the full God. When does the Father come into the process? The first time you start having to choose between the way of the word, and the way of another is when Father enters into the picture. It may take one or two challenges to replace your will with His will, or the process could be more complicated. The one thing that lets you know that you are entering into Father time is when you begin to challenge your soul: your emotions, and your mind are not so excited about the word as it was a month ago. One question could be, has the power of the Holy Ghost moved you into a position of discomfort. That is one way to challenge the soul. When you have to apply patience, you are in Father time because the Times and Seasons are in His authority. The holy Ghost can’t help you: you just have to wait. Oh, nothing challenges the will of man like having to wait. But again, you can see all three levels of the God Head working as one to accomplish the will of the one God.
I will load my next blog up with example after example so you can really see how to walk in the different levels of the God Head with skill, but today I want to leave you with a focus on Father. You know for me it is about Father. The Body of Christ needs to be ready for what Father expects. It his the age of Father now. The Father is not like the other personalities of the God Head. Father wants his will done at all cost: PERIOD. Jesus only does what his Father wants also, but with compassion he knows what we go through: he’s felt our pain. The Holy Ghost is power: his entire authority is moving on that which is spoken: teaching, directing, comforting, edifying, healing, etc. The Father could come at you like a heavy coffee drinker first thing in the morning before having that first mug: just your presence alone could bother him if He does not see his cup of Will being served.
I don’t understand one might say. What makes it time for the presence of Father? Super great question. Before I answer, I will say this about it. Most people refer to the Holy Ghost, just because they know something is different now than it was a few generations ago. So here is the answer to why the Father is upon us. It is Father Time because the Body of Christ is entering into the final stage of development before preparations for the return of Jesus. You hear ministers preaching more now about the return of Christ, but you hear little about the preparation of the Body of Christ before his return. One can’t happen until the body of Christ has reaches full maturity. There is one level of the God Head that has yet to have his time here with the Body of Christ: Father.
The Body of Christ was given the fullness of God in Measure by Jesus when he ascended upon high leaving gifts of himself to the body. These gifts operate to every man in measure, but will be strengthened to make the Body stronger as the Body of Christ develops. The Body of Christ has indeed grew in stature, and in power similar to a natural child: child stay around a long time, it will become an adult by default. The Body of Christ has stayed around a long time, and it has reached a level of development. This last level of development before Christ returns can only be finished by the finisher: Father.
Jesus, The word, came here and started our development. When Jesus left, the power of the Holy Ghost was sent to lead us in all things. He taught us the meaning of the word, and gave us the power. Jesus had the five fold ministry teach us, prepare us to walk in the word while we apply the power of the Holy Ghost. Now, it is time for the Father to finish up our development. There are things that the Body needs to finish up before Jesus returns that lie only in the authority of the Father. So each part of the God Head has been here on earth to oversee the authority that belongs to each. Now it’s time for the Father.
