We are not of this world, but we do live in this world. Most of the things of this world will not help get us any brownie points when it comes to the Father. He is so unlike the world that He has gone to the extent to say that if any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. When I read further into the scripture, 1 John 2:16, I can see why Father wants nothing to do with the things of this world. In His view, and for us adopted sons, the only view that counts; it contains the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life. And since these things are bound in just about everything in this world, how are we going to live in this world? How are we to become what He wants us to become, if what we ultimately need to win our battle is not here in this world? It looks to me that we are going to have to order in what we need from Father’s world, and let him deliver it to us. We will have to learn how to live on room service while we are here in this world, and live as though we are in some type of world motel.
This is why we as the body of Christ have been preparing, and developing over time to become what the Father needed when the time came. Guess what, the time has come, and Father is now ready for His time in this world with us, His adopted sons. You know that Father knows that we need things from this earth to sustain, but He wants us to order, and receive them by the way of the kingdom. The way of the world usually ties your hand, and makes you become something that you didn’t want to become in order to enjoy the better things that it has. This is just the way of the world: you wash my back, and I wash yours. Most of the time the thing in the wash is more costly in the long run than you anticipated because there is a price for everything: nothing is free. It is our time to place our order for the promised things, and have them delivered to us clean from the ways of the world. This will make Father very pleased with us, but how do we place our order for the promised things?
This is where walking in the fullness of God through the Godhead comes into play. Go back and read some of the material from earlier posts on the use of the Godhead, and how the Godhead gives us the means to order the things that we need from the kingdom while we are here in this world’s motel. Romans 12:2 says, And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Here you can see the unity of God in this scripture as it sets us up to process away from the will of the world to the will of God. We as the body of Christ has entered into the third, and greatest of the God head phases: Father. Jesus said that my Father is greater than I. Father sent Jesus to give us life more abundantly, Father sent the promise of the Holy Ghost to give us comfort and power, now Father sends himself to finish up the orders that were placed. We all have been living in this world’s motel, receiving poor service at every turn. It is time for it to end: It is Father-time.
Jesus came as the “Word,” and left it in our hearts. He left gifts to men to make sure the word would continue to flow to the people through the adopted sons in bodily form. The only begotten son left, but He left us here to walk out the Word in his stead. Although He had given them the word, Jesus told the apostles not to do anything until they had the promise of the power: the word by itself is not enough to finish. The power came into our spirit, and gave us gifts to operate in bodily form. All this time since Jesus left, we have been being built up as the body of Christ in preparation to do the work of the son along side the Father when the time came. The time has come, and it is now time to make delivery to those orders placed by many through room service from our worldly motel.
Jesus was God in bodily form. It pleased the Father to give Jesus the fullness of God upfront to complete the work that He had a short time to complete. You and, I must walk through the processes with the Word, Holy Ghost, and Father to receive the Fullness of God. Father just wouldn’t give us upfront the fullness of God in bodily form as He did Jesus. I can’t say that I blame Father after seeing how some of His sons have acted with the little power that was given to them. Now here we are at the Father phase ready to walk with Him as a son. Father wants us to have victory, but to have victory, He must have our soul. The “word” is in our heart, and the “Holy Ghost” dwells in our spirit, are we ready for “Father” to have our soul. This is when the order is complete, and finish: when we replace our will with Father’s will. Once the will of the Father replaces the will of the son in the soul, the times and seasons for delivery are right there with the Father. I will talk more about the process to Father in the next post, but just remember that once you can process through your soul, your delivery is free from this world: knock, knock, Room Service.
