Father loved us so much that he sent his only begotten son that we may have life more abundantly. Jesus was the founding member of His new fold, the Body of Christ, in which every member accepts Him as their Lord and Savior. Jesus was able to produce hundredfold results because it pleased the Father to give to Him the fullness of the Godhead: Jesus was, and is all God. However, it did not please the Father to give you and I the fullness of the Godhead, and I can’t say that I blame Him. A lot of Christians have acted the crazy just with the limited power that Father did give to them. Now here is where I’m going with this. Father knew that He was going to need His sons in the Body of Christ to have power to fulfill His will once Jesus came back to be with Him. When Jesus left, He gave us gifts to help us finish the story already written, but these gifts are mainly parts of who Jesus is in the full scheme of God. In other words, Jesus was the spiritual “Word” before He became “God” in the flesh. The “Word” is His department, and area of the Godhead. When Jesus ascended upon high, He left word parts as gifts to men: Apostles, Prophets, Pastors, Teachers, Evangelist, Administrations, and other relevant parts from the word department. These gifts are all just gifts, and they are a part of the fullness of God, but they are not the fullness of God in the physical absence of Jesus. The “word” part of the Godhead is only going to produce that first level of what the fullness of God can do in the absence of the physical Jesus: they are gifts from Jesus, not Jesus.
Now Jesus himself, in person, with all the fullness of God in his pocket, told His Apostles whom He had touched with his own anointed hands, I’m leaving, but don’t you go anywhere just yet. Although the Apostles had received the word clearly from God himself, just having the word was not enough during their time, and just having the word is not enough presently during our time to fully complete the will of God. The Apostles were not confused about it as we often are today; they were not wondering if the voice they heard was the right voice as we often are today: No, there was no doubt in them as to where the word they had just received came from as we often are today. Jesus was standing right in front of them moving his mouth as the commission came forth from His lips. And yet, the all God with all power in his hand said to them, wait here until you receive power from on high. You know what was happening: they were waiting for the next member of the Godhead (the Holy Ghost) to make the tag with Jesus (the Word) so that He could begin to do his part. We all know that there is only one God, but we sometime seem to forget that God is a spirit, and that Jesus is a man who is God. The man God is not here physically with us at this time. The plan is for the sons that are here to have access to the fullness of God in order to get the work done. If you leave before being endued with power, you will not be able to complete the work fully. The word alone, can only do so much, but when you add the power, now we’re getting somewhere. Now since Pentecost, God has given the Body of Christ the time to work on unifying the first two levels of the spiritual Godhead in bodily form as it was in Jesus. The big difference between the Son Jesus, and we the adopted sons is that Jesus was the fullness of God, while we are allowed to access the fullness of God by way of the Godhead. We have been working the “Word” and the “Power” together for sometime now to where the skill level for some members of the body is ready for a tag with the Father. Many of the members of the Body have experienced so often, getting so close to putting an end to many of the issues that they seek victory over, but it always seem that they are always that one step away. In essence, we have been by designed, to not be one step away, but to be one final level away. You see, the word, and the power working together produces a greater level of results than the word does alone, but the greatest level will be produced when the sons are able to include Father by making that tag with Him.
Since we are in the day and age where it’s going to take everything that we can get from God to win this battle, we are going to have to get the Father involved. If we want the greatest return available, we are going to want the Father to be a part of this tag team. Jesus has already told us that the greatest level of return is the father’s level. Now We have the two other levels in addition to the word that Jesus Himself advocates that there be a working relationship to get the job done. Now remember that Jesus had the apostles (the sons carrying the word) waiting on the power (the Holy Ghost) to arrive before going forth in the word. Also, Jesus always talks about Himself (the word) and the Father (the vast will) working as one with each other to get the will done. This working relationship among the Godhead is easy to see, and follow. Think about it, before Jesus was physically born, there was already God (the vast unknown will), and the word (the known spoken will) which was always with God, and was God. Then the one spirit of God would just move on that word revealed from God’s will according to its time and season with power to bring it to pass. The same concept works today, but we have to include the fourth member to the team now: you and me. Jesus came first and operated in the Godhead as a man, and not as the God that He was. He had to leave the way prepared for the sons to follow His lead through the Godhead process. Jesus could have done the God thing many times during His process, but it was not the will of the Father. I’m thinking about one of many instances, for example, when Jesus was in the Garden of Gethsemane about to go face death: his flesh was in agony to the point where He sweat drops of blood. He could have called down angles to get a quick ride out since He was God, but He had to operate as a man processing the will of God through the Godhead. The Father’s will did not include the processing through the Godhead the calling down of angels for a quick ride out of the Garden. Instead, Jesus would put His will down, and follow the pattern that He would eventually leave behind for the Body of Christ to follow: your will be done Father.
It’s Fathertime!!! Let’s tag the Father so that we can receive a hundredfold.
