This has been the desire of God from the beginning to work hand in hand with his creation. He even created us in the image of God. It was not His desire for us to be without passion as the rest of his heavenly entourage: so He gave us a heart to show love, and a soul to express our feelings. He tried the creator, and creation team working together dynamic back in the beginning, but as you already know, that didn’t work out good at all with Adam.
So here we are now at it again in the latter development of the Body of Christ, generations after that first fail attempt to have creator, and creation working together. This is God’s best, and final attempt to make it work. He went about it a little differently on this last time around trip: oh yeah, He has tried all kind of things to get His creation to see it His way throughout time, but up to this point to no avail. Those of you that missed the earlier posts on those previous attempts to rescue man before sending Jesus to finally nail it, can read up on it later. Also, reading up on all of those previous attempts will give you a better understanding on John 3:16. Why did God have to “so loved” the world to make it happen? Why couldn’t He just “love” us, and that get the job done?
Here is the reason that this is God’s best, and final attempt to have a good working relationship with his creation. He realized after trying so many things that there is only one way to make it work: if you want something done right, or if you want something done the way you want it done, you have to do it your self. He had to do more than just love us to get it done: just loving us simply means that you do all that you can do to make it work while never giving up on it. God never gave up on us because it is not in Him to give up, or be defeated by any thing. So here is where the “so love” comes in to play. If you are not capable of defeat, or giving up on your will, as is the case with almighty God; and the people (us) that you are working with will never be able to work at your standard long enough to get the job done, then you have to send the only thing alive that can get the job done: God. You don’t “so love” because you choose to, you “so love” because there is nothing else left to do. If you could bring it to pass any other way, let’s do it, but if not, YOUR WILL BE DONE.
There was just no other way for God to ever have a good working relationship with us on earth unless He sent “His Blood” to get it done. And since this was earth, and not heaven, the one sent had to come here the same way everyone else came here to make it legal. So the Word became flesh, and entered into our world to establish the model that we on earth would follow. Now God is becoming happy because he has found the way to make a way for you, and I to have a successful working relationship with Him through His son: His Blood. Now, God’s will be done: Father-time.
In Summary, Jesus established a pathway for us to have a working relationship with his Father while we are here on earth. That is why Jesus was giving the fullness of the Godhead to work everything out in bodily from while here on earth. This model gives Father the victory that He has been trying to obtain over generations. You and I can now work with Father because each member of the Godhead came down in His headship role to walk with us each step of the way. We couldn’t do this on our own without them. Jesus the Word came first, and walked in the fullness of the Godhead first: 30 years of word, 3 years of ministry in the word with the Holy Ghost, and the final 3 days in the grave for Father to finish it up!!! Jesus presented the model of the one full God walked out in phases so you, and I could do it in bodily form here on earth.
Unlike Jesus, you and I were not giving the fullness of the Godhead in bodily form. We have it in the spiritual modular form. The Word (Jesus) came and set it all in motion as only the word can do. Then the Power (Holy Ghost) came, and has been working with us to bring us to a place in the word as only He can do. Now it is time for the ultimate Will (Father) to finish it up. We call it Father-time because the Body of Christ have processed through two of the members of the Godhead: The Word and Holy Ghost. That leaves just one Godhead member to finish up: Father!!!
In order to have a successful working relationship with God, we have to walk with God in bodily form. He told His Apostles that you will indeed drink from the same cup as I drink. The members of the Body of Christ that step up, and out to walk with Father will indeed drink from that cup. It is time to walk in the fullness of the Godhead in bodily form and drink from that cup. It is Father-time: tell me, what are you waiting for?
