Do not attempt this act of greater love with mankind. This is only to be attempted under the close supervision of Father. To choose obedience over truth with mankind will almost, always guarantee to reveal our extreme foolishness to all that we know. However, to choose truth over obedience when dealing with Father will not almost, but will without a doubt always guarantee to reveal the extreme judgement against our life for disobedience to Father’s will.
Here’s the thing with Father. I want to use a remark that I once heard stated in a movie about a high school principal that was given the job of turning around a pretty bad school. This student was referencing the principal to one of her friends, and she simply said, “Mr. Clark don’t play.” The thing about Father is, He don’t play. If we are going to step up to that greater level of Father, the place where Jesus stated to be greater than He, we need to come ready to handle Father’s business. If it is still play time with the emotions, or a state of mood fluctuations with our mind where our feelings can still rule, it is not time to enter into Father-time. When Jesus introduces us to Father, we can’t go do the Peter because we will hear the cock-crow. Once a dialogue is made with Father, He will expect obedience at all cost. We can’t deny Him in the course of heated action, or heated truth: that would not be the time to polish up on our skills. The time to become polished is during our processing time in phase one with the “Word,” and phase two with the “Holy Ghost.”
Once we step to the Father, we step into His operation already up and running. Father is a continuation, and the final phase of the complete Godhead coming together with you in bodily form. We must remember the time chart of Jesus? It was a model of reference to follow, and it has not changed. Jesus only spent three days of his life in the “main” operation of Father: once Jesus was buried, Father operated! His prior thirty-three years were spent preparing, and coming to that period when Father would raise Him from the dead: 30 years fulfilling scripture, and three years in ministry in the full power of the Holy Ghost. We spend most of our time today walking in the “Word,” and following the movements of the “Holy Ghost” on that “Word.” There are many members of the Body of Christ sitting all Fat on the “Word,” and uncomfortable in the continuous nudging of the “Holy Ghost.” The “Holy Ghost” will continue to nudge us toward Father, but it is up to us to stay focus, and enter into Father.
The best way for us to understand Father is to pretend we have no other options to attack us. If we can imagine back before the voice of the serpent, and walk in the light shoes that Adam walked in at that time, we may can see this thing. In the beginning, all that Adam heard was from God, and all that Adam repeated with Eve was that which he heard from God. So up to this point, what ever was heard, was all good because it was all of God. Then the serpent said something true that made Adam, and Eve see the tree in a different way. The serpent gave them some knowledge that they otherwise would not have had without first eating the fruit of the tree. That is why God was so mad at the serpent. The serpent cheated, and sneaked them some of the processed knowledge from the tree that got them so inspired that they continued to eat the actual fruit of this tree. Then the serpent just kept feeding, and feeding them until they start feeding themselves. You see, they got in trouble by saying to the Serpent that God said something that God did not say. In Genesis 3:3 they says this, “But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.” What God actually said is in chapter 2:17, “But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” A few thing to take note of: first, they were looking at the end product of fruit on the tree, but the command was concerning the knowledge of the tree. The serpent fed them much knowledge of the tree to get them started down the path to disobedience. Second, they were focusing on eating with their mouths, and therefore played the past-time pleasure activity of window shopping. They didn’t realize that hearing all those words from the serpent was another way to by-pass the window shopping, and actually buy the product. And third, this may be the killer, they probably touched the fruit, and held it for a minute to see if they would die. When nothing seem to be happening, they could have figured that what the serpent said was true since they were still alive. Once again, not hearing or remembering what God actually said got them in trouble to a point of no return.
Let’s look at Genesis 3:22, “And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:” we see that the serpent’s knowledge proved to be true, but when it comes to Father, obedience is the only acceptable option. Father is the face of God when it comes to the times and the seasons. When it was time for Jesus to rise from the grave, it was Father there with the final operation to unify the one God in bodily form. You and I have already processed much of the “Word” under the direction of the “Holy Ghost” that we are believing God to bring to pass. All we need now in many instances is for Father to give way with the times and seasons which are in His hand. We know what to do to have Father present this window to us, but there is always something there trying to inspire us to be disobedient to the path of Father.
There is just one inspiring motivational remark that we all need to know: FATHER DON’T PLAY!
No matter the stress of our truths: bills due, college tuition, health care, unequal yokes, jail term, smeared reputation, addiction, or whatsoever our truths may be, it is always in our best interest to obey His will. When we are ready to enter Father-Time, there will be no truth so strong that will pull our soul away from the will of the Father. WE DON’T WANT TO TRADE FOR HAPPY TRUTHS, WE WANT A HAPPY FATHER!
