The soul has really had a ride since it became relevant. It has been through all the ups and down that one of the main parts of the human body could never hope to experience. I would rate it as the number one part of the human body since it never really dies, but as a human functioning on this earth, I guess I will default to the heart for all practical purposes. The soul’s function was easy before the fall of man in the garden: just follow the commands of the Lord God, name everything to that whatsoever your heart desires, and dress and keep up the garden. In all truth, the natural man’s soul(Adam) could commune with God because it was pure. There was no sin in it before that day when another voice moved into the conversation. This other voice made the soul relevant in that it now had to process between two voices. Hence lies the problem that we continue to face: we are okay with the processing of our soul until the other voice shows up. So how do we stay true to the commands of God, when the other options are put on the table are so hard to resist? And keep in mind, it doesn’t have to be illegal or immoral to be a sin. It could be, let’s see…, just an apple, but if God commanded you not to eat that apple, you will want to keep the apple out of your mouth at all cost.
It is critical to become skilled in the processing of the soul because it is required on all three levels of the Godhead: Word level(Son), Power level(Holy Ghost), and Will level(Father). If you are going to walk in the fullness of the Godhead in bodily form, you will have to surrender the soul each time you are in the process. You may get ten opportunities on this day to bring to pass ten different situations in your and yours lives that may require the soul being contained for each opportunity. Or you could get the biggest opportunities of your life in one swallow like Jesus did, and have to quickly process your soul to achieve victory. Jesus had to let Judas leave dinner early to go betray Him without intervening in the will of the Father; He had to receive for the first time a No from His Father to a request to remove this cup from Him: He had to listen to Pilate talk about his power over Him when Jesus knew that He could shut Pilate’s mouth with a thought; and Oh yeah, then Jesus had to listen to the people that He came to die for choose the very evil Barabbas over Him without being derailed. You get what I’m saying. This is the same process, admittedly to a much lower level, that you and I have to process through everyday. Although the pain and agony of Jesus’ level of soul processing is no match for us, our level still brings us all of the same agony and pain that is hard to bear.
Okay, let’s breakdown the soul. It is made up of three parts. It has the emotions, the mind, and the will. You have to believe the word that you are processing through the fullness of God in each of these three areas in order for the whole soul to be positioned for surrender. If only part of the soul believes in what you are doing, then when it’s time to put up or shut up, you will shut up, and eat the apple. The soul will not surrender to the commands of God without proper processing. You can not cheat the soul, and take short cuts in this area. Many times, we just knew that we were ready to take on what was next until there was nothing that showed up next to take on. The process did not provide you with what was next because you had skipped over something that probably contained the substance needed to bring the next thing to pass.
How do you really tell when someone believes the talk being talked? Well, when we really believe something, there is no way that you are going to leave me out of it, right? In other words, if I really believe you God or husband, or pastor, or friend, or stranger, and etc.., I’m willing to put my money where my mouth is. Why is this? How can I be willing to believe a stranger, and not my God? It’s called process. It can take no time at all, or it can take more time than you have to give to it. This is why you have to give the process all you got when it first offers you the opportunity to start it. The opportunity will show up, but will you start it or move it on to what’s next? A stranger can show up at your door with a vacuum cleaner, and leave your house with a $400.00 check. How is that? You were already processed 90% before that stranger ever showed up. That person just finished the processing, and made the deal.
Key point here, in order to be in time with your needs, you must stop missing out on the early processing. God has been trying to process you now, to be ready for an emergency that you will have down the road. We miss our supply time, after time because we miss the early processing that started early before the need. God told Adam to dress, and keep the garden. You have to stay ready to keep, and dress your world as the processing makes its offer to you. Here is how you stay ready to take advantage of the early processing. The word processing is a word of action. It means that you are moving something from one state to another state or condition. God is always moving us from one state to another because he knows all that we are to encounter before we encounter it. Because of this knowing all about us, He knows what to bring into our life to have us ready for those things to come. God didn’t just supply Egypt’s needs for the seven lean years once they were in need. No, He processed a man of faith with the knowledge of what to do early to be ready or to take action to be ready before the need ever came.
The emotions are easy to process, and convert to believing just about anything. This is why we leave Church so happy, ready to take on the world. It’s all emotional at this point. Give the people a good drum beat, and organ along with a pastor that can really bring the word, and the emotions will lead the soul to a charge. The emotions can not lead the soul to victory, but they will lead the charge. Once we leave Church or whatever the stimulus that has our emotions ready to do battle, we get out to the real world. We pull up in the drive way, and the mind looks at the emotions over there just a cutting up. The mind says to itself, am I really going to join that party? Here is where the next level of processing take place. When you get that first attack by the mind, you have to be ready to dress it up with reinforcements. The mind will send your emotions right back to that dry place if you do not start feeding yourself with that which has the emotions so charged up. Your mind will have you to drop the whole matter if you don’t provide constant reinforcement to its attack. Many people never make it out of the Word level, let along to the Holy Ghost and Father level, because it is stolen from them right here at this stage of processing. How ever many attacks that your mind sends to your emotions, you have to attack back by reinforcing where you stand on the issue each time. When the will in Jesus’s soul, tried to change the mind of Jesus, Jesus reinforced His stance on the death issue again, and again. And once you win your mind over on that issue, guess what, you have to go after the big boy in the soul: Your will.
The will makes up a third of the soul, but its vote is the hardest one to win over. We usually lose out at the word level, but for those few that can get through to the will level, you have to hold tight. The will is not a fair fighter. It will go back to your emotions, and mind to bring up your biggest fears and issues. While it’s fighting you tooth , and nail, it tries to weaken the two areas that you’ve already won. It tries to pull a sneak attack because you think that you are already passed that thing: then you find yourself asking where did that come from? To win the will on any level is a challenge, but to win the will battle at the Father level is the ultimate battle. The Father level is where the finish is processed. Listen, I will continue to talk about these things day to day in the post. We have to talk more about the operations that Father is running, and in need of recruits immediately. We still have many members in the Body of Christ yet to process the soul through the word level. Another note: to process the soul on any level requires that you reinforce it with that Godhead. If you’re in the word level, reinforce it with the word. If you’re in the Holy Ghost level, reinforce it with the power, and if you’re at the Father level, reinforce it with Father: just give up the ghost.
