Let’s just jump right in as we said we would in the previous post to continue, and finish up the phase II option examples from the previous post. We’ve already done a couple of examples with Jesus feeding the multitude to show how unmeasured faith activity from us unites the “Word Phase,” and the “Power Phase,” together with us as one. Now let’s do another example of unmeasured faith activity with each of the three remaining option examples:
- First option example was Jesus feeding the multitude. We’ve already done the unmeasured faith activity for this example in the previous post: now the last three option examples below.
2. Sister Susan desires to buy a house – some of the unmeasured faith would be: contact seller/agent – confirm requirements – insure upfront money – complete qualifying/application. Let’s say that sister Susan choses the option of for sale by owner instead of going with a real estate agent. There may not be a dominant option here for her to choose from. She may have concerns that she believes can be better handled by avoiding the use of the real estate agent. Whatever her reason may be in this example, it must be the choice that she believes in before applying her faith. If she choses an option that she does not believe will work for her, she leaves a window of opportunity for doubt and disbelief to enter in when she runs into a bump in the road: and there will be bumps in the road. So what could be an unmeasured faith activity applied by Sister Susan to her option that would unite the “Word,” and the “Power” together as one with her in bodily form? Remember that unmeasured faith is just doing all the common sense, practical, and logical things with your selected option that do not require action by a Godhead member. The option to go with “sale by owner” would necessitate that she make contact with an owner of a house for sale that she may be interested in buying. Once she makes contact with the owner, guess what she has done? She has used unmeasured faith activity that has just opened the door for the “Word” that she is believing to come to pass, to get connected to the “Power” for the advancement of her cause. Now the “Word” from God along with the “Power” of God has been introduced to a means(the owner) to bring the substance(house) that she hopes for to pass. The three, Sis. Susan – the Word – the Power, can now walk farther along in the fullness of God process. That “Word” ingrained with faith will be working unawares on that owner on behalf of Sister Susan, and the “Power,” will be working on adjustments, cancellations, logistics, etc., etc. to put in order the things needed to get this house for Sis. Susan if it lines up with God’s will for her. Sister Susan will now enter into rest awaiting the outcome of the movement of God’s power on this option. You never know until you start walking things out that God may have a better house situation for you. He may close the door on this option in order for you to get to the one that He has with your name on it. In this example, you can clearly see how to take unmeasured faith activity, and connect the “Word” that you are believing to the “Power” that is necessary to advance you in the process to bring it to pass. Let’s do another option with a different example.
3. 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. Let’s say that Brother Bill believes that it is better for him to go through his Church to build his ministry as oppose to start a ministry alone through state, and local municipalities. So what could be an unmeasured faith activity that Brother Bill could do that would unite the “Word,” and the “Power” together with him in bodily form? Since his selected option is to build his ministry through his Church, he will first need to talk with his Pastor. This meeting alone will generate a union between the “Word” that he hopes to bring to pass, and the “Power” of God to get it done with him included in bodily form. The Pastor will offer a number of options once he hears what brother Bill has in his heart to do, but it still comes down to believing in the option that you selected to walk out the process. The Pastor may have Brother Bill to usher for a while, or teach Sunday school for a while before moving him toward the place that he believes he should be. The result of Brother Bill’s unmeasured faith meeting with the Pastor could land him in the food pantry for a season as person in charge. The point is that once you start down the selected option to walk in the fullness of the Godhead, it must be down the option path that you believe. This is true because you also have to believe that the power of God is in charge of all the moves that come your way now: the ones you favor as well as the ones that challenges your resolve. Anyway, once again you can see how using unmeasured faith activity will connect the “Word” that you are believing from God to the “Power” of God to farther advance you in the fullness of God. Brother Bill is already on the road to bringing to pass that which he believes after his use of unmeasured faith activity: after using unmeasured faith activity, you rest to see what outcome the power will produce on the means (Pastor) that it moves on. Let’s do one last option with another different example.
4. 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. Let’s say that teenager Ralph selects becoming a member of the National Guard while attending college at the same time. He understand that he will attend camp every summer until he graduates, and then enter the military after school to fulfill his obligation to Uncle Sam. He believes the benefits from this option would be best for him. He could still do part-time work while going to school for extra money, but he did not want to bill up a huge debt in student loans to pay back after school. I see that you are beginning to get this unmeasured faith activity down now. You are probably already ahead of me with teenager Ralph meeting with a recruiter to go over everything, and completing the necessary paper work to get this started. Let’s stop right here. Do you see how just these couple of activities of unmeasured faith have placed teenager Ralph well on his way to bringing to pass that which he hopes for in bodily form. He has connected the “Word” from God that he believes with the “Power” of God to move on the means (recruiter) to bring to pass a way to attend college.
Big Note: people are always doing things to try, and get what they want. The difference for us is that we have the fullness of God with us to make it all happen. We get to walk every step of our process out with a phase of the Godhead in bodily form. In the next post we will start to put all three phases of the Godhead together: you know that God is a unified God anyway. He came to us in phases starting with the “Word” becoming flesh that we may have an opportunity to walk in His fullness. Then the “Word” left us, and then came another phase, the Holy Ghost. Right on cue, we will move into phase III next: Father, the will of God that contains the times and the seasons. Can you imagine the results to come when we put the “Word,” the “Power,” and the “Will” all together as one: Watch Out!!!
