A straight vertical run to Father would be too long for us to reach without a place to land on along the way up. We basically have four main stair flights to climb to get to the top flight of stairs to Father with four landing positions along the way to gather ourselves, and confirm our position. I want to talk about the four stair flights in chronological order that make up the long run to Father, but I’m going to break order because of this irresistible model of one flight of stairs that Jesus so clearly left as an example of how the climbing process operates. We know that the Apostles had received Jesus, and their commission from Jesus to go teach all nations to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you. However, they get to stop in one of the landing positions along the way up to the top flight before moving on. In Luke 24:49 as well as many other scriptures, Jesus says And, Behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high. Some might think that once you had received Jesus along with the “word” from God, it was time to go take care of business. Jesus is very clear to the Apostles that there is another level, or flight of stairs needed to continue your ascension to the top. So here we can see the Apostles being commanded to tarry here at this landing position, and wait for the next flight of stairs (Holy Ghost) to connect you up higher.
We know that there is nothing made known that was not made known without the “word,” but once the “word” makes known that which is the will of God, we need the power of God to move on that which was made known by the “word.” Here you can also see how the God heads are unified back into their oneness. There is only one God, there are not two, three God parts working individually. Every since the “Word” of God was made flesh to come here, and save us from eternal death, the individual personalities of the God head have been elevated for our benefit. In order for us to walk in the fullness of God in bodily form, God established the landing positions between each God head so that we humans could access His fullness in Bodily form. You know back in the day before God sent the “Word” to become Jesus in the flesh, and before including humans in the God head process of walking in His fullness with power, the “Word” would just come forth and make known God’s will; then the “Spirit” of God would just move on it, and it be done. Remember back in the beginning without man, it seem so simple. For example, God would say “Let there be light: and there was light,” and the light was good. Ha, Ha, I bet God misses those days. He could rest after six days when He did all the work alone, but now with man, He doesn’t ever rest! We hardly complete anything nice and simple.
The “Word”, and the “Holy Ghost” are the two middle runs of stair flights where we do most of our climbing. I will just briefly mention the first flight along with its landing. Before we become of age to accept the responsibility for the action of our ways, we have our natural development that leads us to accepting Jesus as our savior. There is the landing position between the natural, and the spiritual where we are positioned until it’s time to start the walk with Jesus as a new convert. Some find Jesus at an early age, and are not on this first landing position as long as others. Then there are those that live a great part of their life before accepting Jesus, and remain at this natural landing position much longer than God desires.
In summary, and in mentioning the last flight of stairs at the top, I will just say Father: Father time. Those of you that have read any of my previous post know that father is at the top of the stair flight. The first stair flight is our natural birth into this world where we live until we are drawn to accept Christ as our savior. Second, we step up to the “Word” that God has spoken over us to walk it out. Third, we look for the movement of the Holy Ghost for the power to be applied to that “word” in order for the “word” to be made ready for manifestation. And the top flight, is Father. Once all the other stair flights have ushered us into the proper position, Father will unify all the work done into the one long complete stairway that runs right into the times and seasons held in His hand: Father time.
