The Body of Christ needs the operation of Father more so now than ever before if we members are going to change our position in society as a religion of power, and viable achievement. Whatever the areas of change to come, whether it be first economically, socially, politically, spiritually, or whatever it maybe, until the Body of Christ start applying the operation of Father, it will not achieve the abundant level of living that God has intended for it. We will continue to do what we have always done, and that is, the same ole thing: and that is insane!
What is the same ole thing one may ask? Well, we follow the leader. There is a hymnal with lyrics that says,”where he leads me I will follow,” this was not meant for us to assume a position on this earth where we do everything that we see the world do. We need to show the world more of what we can do from our true leader: Father. This is the “He” that the song is referring to that we follow, but we don’t do it. It’s not that we are not willing to follow Father, but we are not truly aware of what it takes to actually follow Him. The world is much easier to follow than God is because there are so many people in the world just waiting, and willing to show you how: this is how we do it, this is how we do it baby!(lol) The Body of Christ has many members ready to show you what they know, but it’s basically the same ole stuff that the experts in the world is showing us.
What do we as a Body of Christ do in this world that is solely ours to behold? You know Joseph in an unworldly way could interpret dreams better than any one of Pharaoh’s royal cabinet members. David could take out a lion, a bear, and a Goliath with an aim from a slang shot that would not be rivaled by any worldly expert marksman. Noah could build a structure that could endure waters, and pounding unlike anything made by the world’s lead builders. The thing that each of these people, and so many others had going for them is that they followed the same leader. That same leader is still around today. He wants the Body of Christ to look to Him for the new; the thing that is unique to your gifting that this world does not have to give to you, but you have in you to give to it.
The process of walking in the fullness of the Godhead is how Father allows us access to a power of inventory that the world can’t produce. As long as we only follow the lead of the leaders of this world, we can never catch up to them. We must pull out of Father that which is new: this will give us a upper hand, and not the receiver of that which is second handed. There is a science to Father’s spiritual madness. It is not Father who is holding us back, but it is the lack of understanding how He operates that is holding us back. Recall when God sent Moses, and Aaron to Pharaoh with the direction to let my people go. Well, God was the same God every step of the way, but Moses had to allow God to set up some logistics along the way. Moses showed up with all power in is hand, but he only presented to Pharaoh that which Pharaoh could also do: they both had rods that became serpents. Moses left, and came back the second time with all power in his hand, but again, Moses did the same ole same O: Moses turned water into blood, and so did Pharaoh’s magicians. Well, just like us today, it’s not that Moses is trying to keep Pharaoh in the game, but Moses is learning how God operates. God always has a bigger picture going on, and you can’t stop pushing what you are pushing until the end. Moses had to learn that He had to keep pushing, and keep coming to allow God to work out a few logistics along the way: otherwise, we will find our selves just doing that which the world can do. The world will not make room for you as long as you are following it. You have to get to Father, and step up your game.
Moses went back a third time with all power in his hand again, and again, Moses did the same ole thing; he only did that which Pharaoh’s magicians could do. However, Father had began to work out a few things since Moses did the first offering to Pharaoh, and this time around things begin to change. Pharaoh begin to wonder how Moses could do the things that his magicians could do, so Pharaoh called for Moses. You know, once the world sees that it can’t out do you anymore, it will call for your services also. Then Pharaoh mistook God’s kindness in given him a break after the frogs, and he went back to a harden heart. Moses returned again to Pharaoh, and it’s game on now. The magicians could not match the output of lice from Moses next offering, and every offering after that moved Moses closer to victory. Hey, it’s time for us to move closer to victory by learning the process of Father, and giving Father the lead way to work out a few logistics.
Let’s name a few logistics that we can anticipate from Father. He will always gauge your current faith level to make sure that you are getting the training needed before you call down the lice. Father will make sure you can handle the world’s serpents, blood water, and frogs before you enter the territory new to the world. Father will look to see if your movement is getting support from those that have your best interest at hand. Another thing that Father will plan for is how you are linking where you were, with where you are on the bridge that is leading you to where He is taking you. Father is not going to throw you to the wolves until you are ready, and able.
It’s Father-Time! Let’s produce the new, and do away with the world’s same ole, same O.
