We will pick right up from where we ended in the last post. I finished the example with Jesus transitioning from phases 1 & 2 into the final phase 3. We saw the coming together of phases 1 & 2 as the disciples applied unmeasured faith to the “Word” phase. As the application of unmeasured faith signaled the start of phase 2, the power of God in the person of the “Holy Ghost” begin His preparation to work the miracle of multiplying the small amount of substance into enough to feed the multitude. Here is where Jesus, or You and I, will look toward heaven signaling the transition to phase 3: Father-time. Once we get to this stage in the process of walking in the fullness of God, we already know that the “Word” of God, and the “Power” of God are both in unison on the same page. What we want to do here is join their page or timing to the page or timing of Father. We do not know for sure if Father is ready now, or if Father has been ready in His timing for a while just waiting on us to get there: this is when you find out because the times and seasons of everything is in His hands or phase to control.
If we get to phase 3 and Father time and season is at hand, then the power of God will multiply the food to feed the multitude; but if you missed a step in the process, or tried to take a short cut along the way, you will get to a place in the process without receiving the desired results. One thing you don’t want to get twisted is this, Jesus worked the process as a man, but as a man gifted in all God. So Jesus worked the process to perfection: He didn’t get to a place in the process to early or to late. He didn’t let people try to make Him get to Lazarus too soon because they heard of Lazarus failing health: Father had bigger logistics to cover than the small human mind could see. So as you are processing along in the word, make sure you keep a bag of your fruits of the spirit very handy. You are going to need to go deep into that bag at times to find a level patience that hasn’t been used in a while. Just around the corner there may be a need for a little long-suffering that you can’t even spell anymore. The point is, once you get to the father phase of the process, be prepared for God to be God: being God does not mean that your every hope is granted just because it was you that hoped it. Now if you are prepared to come at God correctly, your bag of fruits of the spirit may not get much use at this stage because you would have already produced what was needed correctly, earlier during the process.
Another thing to remember is that God operating without the inclusion of man is like, automatic. Remember, let there be light, and it was. It was no waiting. It was just there. Even with the man Jesus, it was still pretty automatic. Jesus may have run into a stubborn fig tree here and there, or a city with people full of doubt and disbelief from time to time, or had a mom that occasionally wanted Him to do things before His time, but for the most part Jesus having the fullness of God was still the fastest gun as the human’s best. Now we as total humans just have to know that we don’t move as fast as a God. We read in the Bible how God moved fast, and how God used, and still uses a few people who at times show to be on the same page as God, but those people had sold out. They were not worried about promotions, making larger mortgages, or what the family and friends may say. What you have to do is mix you, and God together to see what level of production you two can produce with you as your current self. If you then want to be a more productive vessel of God, then you must make the adjustments. One thing for sure, God is not making any changes, and he doesn’t mind one way or the other waiting for you to decide to change. He has all the time in creation: with Him a day is as a thousand years. Wow, that means a regular 90 day calendar season for us can be made to be as long as 90,000 years roughly: Oh my God. I can’t wait to change, change me now!!!
Ok, one of the traits of Father is the gift of insight. My blogs would be a good example of insight. Father will give the strategy, but then go on to explain it to you as though you were sitting at the table with Him when He was revealing it for the first time ever. I know all the processes that He wants me to know when it comes to walking in the fullness of the Godhead. I shouldn’t know those processes with such clarity from a human perspective, but I do only because Father continues to give me the insight. Insight is not like the gifts from the Holy Ghost. A word of wisdom will tell me something about the future, but it will not explain to me any of the details. Insight details will more than satisfy the mind of a scientist, but a word of knowledge will only give the scientist a fact that does indeed exist without any explanation. Discerning of spirits will let you know that the spirit is there, and a word of knowledge may even name the kind of spirit it is; but insight will tell you how to deal with it, and it will let you know that this kind come forth only by prayer and fasting. One more trait that is near, and dear to Father is full faith. When operating in phase 3 while walking with Father, turbo patience is something that you can’t leave home without, but full faith keeps you busy and sharp while you stay in your place to allow God to be God. He is going to be God whether you allow it or not, but it turns out much better for all involved if you are obliged.
We are getting long here with much more to say. I will offer more on the traits of Father in the next post. We will also get to the other three examples to finish the phase 3 example. We really have to be clear on that for Father. He wouldn’t have it any other way being a God of excellence as He exist!
