Operating in Father-time comes down to understanding the process, and that which was produced because of the process. You will be told from the pulpit that the Kingdom of Heaven, and the Kingdom of God is one and the same. This would be the accurate way to preach it in a Sunday morning service. However, if you were doing a work shop or a seminar, you would need to go a lot deeper. Saying that the two are one and the same is really like saying that little Jimmie at 10 years of age is the same person as big Jimmie will be at 35 years of age. On one hand, they are the same person, but on the other hand, they are not. We see Big Jimmie At age 35, and how people no longer just boast or allude to the promising future that lies ahead of him as they did when he was little Jimmie. Now as Big Jimmie, the same person is actually producing more of the results that everyone hoped would happen because of the gifts, and talents they believed would develop through the process from little Jimmie to Big Jimmie. The same is the Kingdom of Heaven, we start operating in it as soon as we receive Jesus into our lives, but the process from the beginning to the end is what allows us to produce more of the results already stored up for us in the Kingdom of God.
Can you picture a novice, or an immature member of the Body of Christ being allowed to just stroll freely into the Kingdom of God? I don’t think so: you know as Satan is going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it, he would just tear up that person’s life as he did Job’s. Little Jimmie was able to do a little bit here, and a little bit there along the way in the process in order to grow into Big Jimmie, but it was all done under protective cover until Jimmie processed to a certain age, and development. The Kingdom of Heaven is like the farm league in baseball to get you ready to operate in the majors. The Kingdom of God is the majors. When you get called up, you have already shown through the farm league process that you are able, and cable of playing in the majors. No man cometh unto to the Father (kingdom of God), but by Jesus. Jesus (Kingdom of Heaven) is always looking to promote those that are drawn by the Father to the Majors (Kingdom of God).
It is critical for the Body of Christ’s continued development, and production that it has more members that become ready to take that step up from the protective covers of the kingdom of heaven to the greater victories of the Kingdom of God. The Body of Christ has become stagnated as a whole, and we the members are losing ground to the members of other religions, other groups, and just the basic unaffiliated professional society as a whole. They all have their ways of achieving according to commitments, and beliefs. We have our commitments, and beliefs also, but we do what every one else is doing. God needs us to come on home, and win our victories down the path that He has laid out for each of us. Find your path, it is hiding from the world, but there waiting for you to see. The way of the world can’t lead us to victory: we must finish the process laid out in the Kingdom of heaven. Since Jesus left to go be at the right hand of Glory, the Body of Christ(us) has come along way toward making that Big step. We are at the door of the final phase to the Kingdom of God where we can pull the resources that are needed to complete each individual’s mission.
This scripture in Matthew will give a good understanding of where we are in the process. Matthew 13:33, “Another parable spake he onto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.” Those of you that have read my previous posts, know right off about the leaven that the woman hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened. The entire Body of Christ’s development, and use of power here in the earth is just waiting for us to use all three measures of leaven. We have inventories of power in every area of life for us to use on earth just waiting on us to rise up in each measure of leaven. We have already applied our hands to two of the measures of leaven, and we have risen to this point since Jesus left. The members of the Body of Christ are well grounded in the “Word” measure of leaven. We can walk, and hold on to our faith without growing faint. We have also developed in our use of “the Holy Ghost” measure of leaven. We are able to apply power to the “Word” that we believe in, and see more things being bought to pass than ever before. The last measure of leaven that will give us the big rise to victory that we need to tap into is Father. I call it Father-time. We have become stagnant because we think that we are looking to Father because we pray to the Father, but we are still looking to our habits: the Word and the Holy Ghost.
The “Word” and the “Holy Ghost” are the first two measures of leaven needed to process through the Kingdom of heaven. However, we are not able to complete the process without the third measure of leaven, Father. The three working together is what raises us from one Kingdom to the other. Until we unify them together from their spiritual modulation, and separation here in the Kingdom of Heaven, we can not access the inventory that lies in the Kingdom of God. Why is this? In order for us to have access to God in bodily form, the one God sent himself to us in the form of the God head. Jesus came first as the “Word” made flesh to deliver the “Word”, and left us the example of how to process the kingdom of Heaven here on earth in bodily form. Jesus was also given the fullness of God in bodily form so that He could complete His mission here on earth. You and I are not given the fullness of God in bodily form as was Jesus. God created a spiritual way for us to have access to the fullness of God by sending us the full God in the God head for us to step into as we processed from one God Head to the next. This is why we have to step into the final measure, Father, to complete the process in the Kingdom of Heaven so that we can have access to all that God has for us in the Kingdom of God. The Holy Ghost came to us right after Jesus left to go be with the Father. Now that the Body of Christ has developed in the “Word”, and the “Holy Ghost”, it is time to finish the development with Father (The Will).
Hi Adopted Son, What is the scripture or rationale for this please?
Hello Crossroman, I appreciate your comment. A very proper response from you. In Matt. 3:2, John the Baptist preached that the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. We know that he was speaking of the coming of the Christ. After Jesus finished being tested by Satan, In Matt. 4:17, He preached the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. He sent His disciples out in Matt. 10:7 preaching the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. This was our first opportunity to enter into the Kingdom, and have access to the things of the Kingdom: healing, prosperity, salvation, everything. The Kingdom of God without man being in the mix was always here with God. God could always move on whatever He desired and bring it to pass, but to have sons to move in this same power is a different task. So we enter into the kingdom of Heaven through Jesus, and then learn how to process into the greater things that are already in God’s kingdom. Jesus also tells us in John 14:28 that my Father is greater than I. So we enter into the Kingdom of heaven through Christ, and we develop through process to the greater.
2nd, Colossians 2:9 speaks of Christ having the fullness of the Godhead bodily. The goal of God is to produce sons that can operate in the power of God bodily. Jesus did it first as a man, and left us the example. The difference between Jesus, and us is that Jesus was given the fullness of God, you and I have to step into God as we process along the way.
3rd, Colossians 2:2 speaks of the Kingdom of God, and Heaven along with Christ as the door to both. The Godhead allows us to process into the fullness of God to have full access to the vast unknown kingdom of God: His Everything. Once we entered into the Kingdom through the Christ, we become only a word from God away from anything in the Kingdom.
4th, Acts 1:9, tells us of the measure of Father: times and seasons are in His hand. You and I must process through the Godhead of the Word, and the Power (Holy Ghost) to arrive at the correct time and season of the will for the word that you are walking in to bring to pass. Most of the members of the Body of Christ are not working the process together most of the time, and that is why we miss so much in God.
5th, Remember that Jesus was on earth 30 years before doing miracles. He was God, He was not confused as we are so many times today on when and what to do. Jesus knew what to do at all times, but He fulfilled all scripture first, then moved into the power. Today, we want to move into power first before we complete the word of that operation. Completing all you can in the word first is what ignites the Holy Ghost to move on what you are not able to move on. In Luke 24:49, we see how Jesus had given the Apostles the complete word, but told them not to leave until they were endued with power from on high. The word along is not enough. The two work together to point you toward the time and season of the Father’s perfect will: the finish.
lastly, Remember in the Garden (Matt 26:42), Jesus knew the time was at hand, but he ask the Father if this cup could pass. Then He said your will, not my will. This is Jesus entering into Father. I call it Father time. We need to process to Father so that we can step into the times and seasons of His will to bring it to pass. Things are not coming to pass because we don’t surrender at father time. Everything Jesus did in His life included the word first, and then the power of God. They directed Him to the time and season of his death on the cross. Everything that you and I do should include the processing of the word and the power to direct us to the time and season of the Father’s will in our life. And then when we reach that time, we have to defeat the soul in our garden, and step into father: Fathertime.
Be Blessed, stay tune, Adopted Son
Interesting, thank you!
