This is really an amazing time to be the Body of Christ, you know, if you can just get it. When we think back to our early beginnings with Jesus, and the small band of followers known as His Apostles. This movement was all so new, and impactful to them. Jesus had to talk to them in parables, or otherwise they would not have survive the learning curve. Even with the greatest teacher of all times right in their face, they didn’t get it for a long time. We can look at the greatest writer in the New Testament, the Apostle Paul, he wrote about having to give the milk of the word to the body. Once again, a reference to the stage of development of the Body of Christ at that time.
It is easy to understand when we think of it in the same light of a new-born child. The new-born physical organs, and overall body processes are not ready, or developed enough to take on the meat of regular food. In parallel, the new-born convert spiritual digestive organs, and overall spiritual processes are not ready, or developed enough to take on the meat of the “Word.” Even after the physical child’s body develop into the middle to late adolescence years, there are still many parameters along the way to protect the developing teen across the board. Tough food is no longer a problem, but the puberty years bring a host of developmental changes to a physical big body, but still an ever-changing biological, and psychological body. And now as the growing child matures, the world has to become a place of planning through rationale as oppose to just right and wrong.
The Body of Christ had to take time to develop in a similar fashion. Even still today, you can hear a Pastor lay out a nice eloquent explanation to the congregation, then say to them that some of you will get it by the time you get home. The “Word” by itself can bring a depth of understandings, and administrations that may take time to get, and when you add all the gifts of the spirit to it, along with the many operations of Father that are going on, you can see why it has taken the Body so long to dock. Then the renewing of every members mind, the development of the fruit of the spirit, and the love to operate in them all at a high level; some members will not ever get it: oh the woes along the way to spiritual adult-hood.
I have great news for those members that have done their due diligence along the way. Here is the great news, the Body has docked, and the door is wide open for you to enter in to spiritual adulthood. Some will say that they have been there for quite some time, but you can’t be somewhere that didn’t exist until recently. The Body of Christ has existed ever since Jesus came to start it, then left to go to the Father. The Body of Christ has just recently hit the dock to where the members that are ready can join in to spiritual adulthood. Please go back to the earlier post entitled “Father-Time operation process vs The Body of Christ developmental Process,” to understand why the Body of Christ just hit the dock to the greater things. We have been developing toward maturity over all these years. It took some time to get the Body as a whole, properly established in all the things of the “Word.” Then it took more time to add the person of the Holy Ghost to the mix while at the same time learning how to produce the needed fruit of the spirit to win our battle. Most members still haven’t learn how to produce the needed fruit at a much faster rate to move on to the next phase of development. Hint: whatever type circumstance that you are going through, it is to produce that particular fruit. God will always allow circumstances to move into your life that will develop the fruit that you are weak or underdeveloped in to gain strength. So to get through it faster, and move on, gladly take it on with joy, and it will end faster because you ended faster.
The last phase of maturity for the Body of Christ is of course, Father: I always refer to it as Father-time. This is where the Body has docked. The door has opened, and the opportunity for the greater is there for you to behold. The great news is this, each member can take the ball, and run with it now. This last phase of our development hasn’t been there before for every member until just recently. WHEN WAS RECENTLY SOMEONE MAY BE THINKING? THE FIRST TIME YOU HEARD OF IT, AND BELIEVED IT: MAYBE TODAY FOR SOME OF YOU IF YOU JUST FIRST BELIEVED IT TODAY. There are members of the Body that you will begin to see moving in ways that they have never moved before. The reason why they have never moved in Father that way before is because there was no door open to the greater things of Father before until recently. Don’t you think that if the door had already been there, and opened that you, me, and many others would have already bust through it before now? We are not looking to suffer forever, are you? I’m am so happy about my opportunity to go through that door to the greater things of the Father. Don’t forget what Jesus said, “my Father is greater than I. Let’s finally get it, so that we can get the greater.
It’s Greater Time because It Is Father-time. I’m already going after mine!!!
