Father-time is not an atmospheric gathering of excitement where your team, and favorite player are just rolling over the opponent! No, on the contrary: it is a time where you make the decision at the “will” level of your soul that it is not your will, but his will that will be done. When you step into Father-time, you are stepping into an area that brings the most challenge to your soul. The soul: emotions, mind and will, hates nothing more than surrendering it’s authority to another. Free will is the one thing that our flesh can boast about. It will not lay it’s free will down so easily.
We are now in the time where we have to deal with both levels of Father-time: individual, and corporate. For so long, we only had to deal with the individual level of Father-time. The individual level is more like driving a car with an automatic transmission: once you can crank up the car and turn the engine over, the rest of the shifts will take care of themselves. Since Jesus was given the fullness of the God Head, as each of us obey his word and turn it over to the power of the Holy Ghost, the rest of the outcome will take care of itself. The reason the outcome can take care of itself is because the big picture of God is already worked into the fullness of God given to Jesus. When Jesus gives us a word, it is already worked out: it is already given a certain finish. Its outcome is automatic as long as you just keep your faith driving on down the road. As they say, one day you’ll look up and, there it is!
The corporate level of Father-time can now make it-self available to the structural unit of the Body of Christ as well as to the members that make up the Body of Christ. It is an additional benefit to the Body corporately as well as to the members individually because of the development, and maturity attained by the Body. It has been a long time since Jesus came and started the Body of Christ with Himself, and his initial followers. Just like a natural child will grow, and develop over time; the Body of Christ has grown, and developed over time. Also like a young child that is protected by parents, and the law from so many bad things; the members of the body of Christ has been protected by Jesus, and Father from so many bad things. Do you remember how the Devil was only allowed to do so much to Job during the time of testing: if you would just remove the hedge from around him….. you know the story.
Since it pleased the Father to give Jesus the fullness of God in bodily form, Jesus could protect us as we matured, and developed by making sure that all our needs were provided for along the way. Because Jesus was all God, He knew all that we would need to have provided to finish our walk before we ever started our walk: now that’s protection. On the other hand, God did not see it to be wise to give us the fullness of the God in bodily form. What God did see was allowing us to develop, and grow into learning how to walk in the fullness of God. God would accomplish this by sending the God Head to us at different times, and giving us the time needed to learn how to walk in each level of the God Head. This is the reason why we have the individual level, and the corporate level of Father-time.
So corporately, what time is it? It is now time for the authority of the Father to finish the development of the Body itself. Father also wants to give as many sons that want to walk in the greater authority with Father, an opportunity to do so. Members of the body that like driving an automatic, can continue to do so, and still reach a desired finish that’s in the will of God. Those sons that want to step out and drive that stick shift into the greater walk with Father, Stay tuned for more.
Remember, Jesus said that the Father is greater than I. Now is that time. The structural development of the Body of Christ now cries out for Father. Jesus has come and gave the body its start, the holy Ghost has given the Body full support, and it’s time for Father to FINISH: Get Ready For Father – Time.
