In a previous post I talked about the Body of Christ’s Developmental Process along with the Father’s Operational process. The two are dependent upon each other for both to achieve victory. However, their dilemma over all these years has been as it still is today, one process knows the way to victory while the other process knocks on the door seeking the way to victory. It made me think about the one element that both processes have in common, and that is you: the individual members that as a whole unit makes up the Body of Christ. The members do not make up the developmental process of the Body of Christ, but we do make up the Body. In contrast, we do not make up the Father’s Operational process, but we do as individual members process through maturity to stand in the stead of the one and only begotten Son to finish the work with the Father as assigned to each of us. So I want to offer to you a third process that is the glue that connects the first two processes, and that is processing the placement of each member within the Body through maturity.
Processing the placement of new converts into the Body as well as not so new converts into the Body is no piece of cake. And even more challenging is processing the continued placement of any member, no matter how long a convert, through maturity. If it was so easy to accomplish, Father’s operations would have already finished, and there would be no doubt from Christian opposition about the power of God. Look at this for a moment. We talk about proper placement in every area of life except when it comes to spirituality. We take test for placement at every level of school. We take test for proper placement in our careers in all levels of our society: government, military, and business. Let’s face it, you first get to participate as a child in any number of our favorite sports past-times based on placement. Your child will be placed on that first memorable team by division based on age, and not the great amount of talent yet to be seen. So what’s my point? Do we ever wonder why so many well intended members of the Body of Christ fall by the way side? We wouldn’t place our little Billie at the tender age of six years old on the JV team, and say show them what you got my boy as you drive off in your car. No: little Billie needs to be placed with other little five, and six year olds so that the benefits of the pee wee division will provide proper balance in the development of little Billie.
Let me show you what it really looks like for not just a new convert just placed in the Body of Christ, but for any member of the Body of Christ that is seeking upward movement in the Kingdom’s business at regular intervals. Oh, just a minute, I just had a thought. I don’t know how it is now, but I know that it use to be for some of the major companies that upward movement at regular intervals was a must to keep your placement. However, the thing about the companies was that you at least came in knowing your placement, and what needed to be done to achieve the next level or promotion. It’s hard to enter into the Body Of Christ, and know your placement. Most of the well known leaders around the country will tell you some things about their journey, and count to you many years passing by before they arrived to their current placement in the Body of Christ: processing through maturity is not an easy thing to achieve, and to continue.
Now, the thing to know concerning your placement today for all members from new converts to long time members is that the Body of Christ developmental processing is at the final level of the Godhead. What does this mean to you? It means that it is the Father’s time to oversee the final stage of the Body’s development. If you are looking for your placement, here it is: you are at the highest level of development that the Body has ever seen. The Body has developed through maturity in the Word, and in the Power of the Holy Ghost. Each of those two God Heads have taken their turn overseeing the development of the Body up until recently. It has taken over two thousand years to reach this level of maturity. Most all of the members before us never knew what time it was for their placement in the Body. They didn’t know that it wasn’t meant for them to see the greater blessings come to pass: this was the only reason the world hasn’t seen more from God. The earlier members always believed and hoped to see, but didn’t understand the processes that were in motion. Most of the members before us were appointed to finish the Body’s development in the maturity of the Word; and others after them were assigned to finish the Body’s maturity in the Holy Ghost. Our placement today is to finish the development of the Body in the maturity of the Will (Father).
Now, the thing to know concerning the Father’s operation today is that we need to build the final level of maturity on top of the two now already established by the earlier members of the Body. We can’t let them down by not finishing the development. Unlike our fellow members before us, you, and I will actually see the fullness of God in our lives. Oh, don’t get me wrong, many of the members of the Body of Christ from over time saw some of the power of God, but they were not in placement to see the fullness of God at that time as you and I are for this time: keep in mind that everything is built percept upon precept until we realize the concept of full maturity. The earlier followers of Christ from the apostles on up exploded on the scene with a mass number of conversions, and Church growth because of the “Word.” It was the “Word” alone to first spread, and captivate the land. Even in places where the Holy Ghost hadn’t yet fallen, the power of the “Word” was building, and developing the Body. The “Word” was not ever meant to complete the fullness of God on its own. Even Jesus warned them not to spread apart on their missions until they received the promise: Power. The Apostles then start building the Body up with the “Power” working together with the “Word.” There was so much to learn about the administrations, persons and operations, of the God Head that would require time for the Body to get it.
So it took all that time to develop the Body of Christ to this point. And all those people lived, and died not knowing their true placement, but still kept the faith. I’m glad to know that we are here for the time at hand to walk in the fullness of God by means of the God Head in bodily form. Jesus operated as a man, but Father gave Him the fullness of God in bodily form to complete the work, and leave us a means to follow His lead as we walk in the power also. It is our time, and the Father’s operation is ready for the members that are ready to be sons, and come forth.
Last thing for this post, we’re getting a little long here. Processing your placement so that you can walk in the Father’s operation may take some training, but Father will make available all that we need to get it. Father will not bring us this far, and not finish it. I will as I have done over recent years continue to offer as much as I can on the subject matter. Be excited, it is our time to walk in the fullness of God in Bodily form, and we will do it. There has not been a generation where access to God’s fullness was actually provided for everyone with the knowledge on how to walk in it. The big difference now is that Father has shown up with the times, and seasons in His hand. We don’t have to wonder if the time is now, we know the time is now because Father is the God head overseeing the operation.
