Now that we have established the groundwork for phase I, “The Word”, to walk in the fullness of the Godhead; we need to actually add phase II, “The Power,” to the mix. You remember from the beginning of the reign of the Apostles, post Jesus, one of His first directions to the Apostles before His ascension was to not go forth until you receive the promise of the Holy Ghost (The Power). Jesus, The Word, knew that men were not giving the fullness of God in bodily form as it so pleased the Father to give to Him. However, Jesus was aware of the plan that they(The Godhead) had put in place starting with Him, to give men access to the fullness of God in bodily form.
So the Apostles, just as you and I, had received the word. Now they await the power: if Jesus himself says that the Word isn’t enough by itself, need we say more to that subject. The difference between us, and the Apostles is that they initially received the Word in person in faith; we received the word in spirit in faith. Either way, the process of walking in the fullness of the Godhead in bodily form begins with receiving the word. Let’s move on to Phase II: The Power (The Holy Ghost).
One note before we move on. When I talk on adding the Holy Ghost to the mix in order to walk in the fullness of the Godhead, I am not speaking of the Pentecost experience of receiving the Holy Ghost. My posts are geared toward mature, and developed members of the body of Christ that already have the experience of the baptism of the Holy Ghost. If you are new to your salvation, and/or have not yet experienced receiving the Holy Ghost, please speak with your pastor, or church leadership on this matter.
So how do we add the Holy Ghost (phase II), the power, to the Word (Phase I), Son/Adopted sons? In order to add phase II to the mix with phase I, we (adopted sons), will apply unmeasured faith to every option that we are using as examples to explain this format, and system. Remember that unmeasured faith is doing all the common sense, practical, and logical things that you can do with your options that do not require action by a member of the Godhead. It’s like handing off the baton to the next runner. Since the Godhead is one, the next member is already in position waiting for the human element(us) to process to that point. Once we get to that point, the Holy Ghost is there ready, and waiting to take the baton from you. Unmeasured faith is always defined as stuff, or anything that us humans can do without a member of the Godhead doing it for you, or with you. The Godhead phases are God’s brilliant plan to allow us to have access to the fullness of the Godhead in bodily form, otherwise there is no need for this system: They operate as one God. The phases are our opportunity to move in them(The Godhead) when we need to in bodily form. If we do not have access to God within our human elements, we can not defeat the enemy. God has always been able to defeat, and create anything since the beginning: the problem has been us without power. Now we have access to it!
Let’s apply some unmeasured faith to our example options from the previous post:
- Jesus has a multitude of hungry people to feed – some of the unmeasured faith would be: ask boy for lunch – sit everyone down – disciples have extra baskets – Jesus starts breaking food.
- Sister Susan desires to buy a house – some of the unmeasured faith would be: contact seller/agent – confirm requirements – ensure upfront money – complete qualifying/application.
- Brother Bill is called to start a ministry – some of the unmeasured faith would be: talk to pastor/municipality – confirm spiritual/legal qualifications – apply for license/non-profit.
- Teenager Ralph needs money/means for college – some of the unmeasured faith would be: request info. on funding: grants and loans – match your qualifications with requirements – meet with recruiter for info. of benefits for college through the military.
As you can see just from the few unmeasured faith activities laid out above, a lot of movement will be birthed from the activity. When this movement starts, guess who will be involved to direct any movement that is a part of Father’s bring it to pass plans for you? That is correct, the Holy Ghost is just waiting for your human intervention to hand off the baton to Him to initiate His spiritual intervention as it lines up with the Father’s overall plan for you!
This is getting long. In the next post, we will jump right in to handing the baton over to the Holy Ghost. Unmeasured faith is so important because it really shows the depth of your belief in God to bring it to pass.
