If Jesus and His Father worked together in order to finish the work at hand, need I have to say more about it. Since you and I are No Jesus, we will definitely need to work with the Father to finish our work at hand. Look, how are things working out for those that are depending on the word only to come to pass all by its little lonesome? The word of God has never, or will it ever operate alone. We know from the bible that the word was here in the beginning with God, but let me say it the way it is stated in the bible. John 1:1, In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Verse 2, The same was in the beginning with God. In order to make a long talk short, we all know that when the Word comes forth, that the Spirit of God moves on it to make it so. Now if the truth really be said, as soon as God wills something to be, the Spirit of God moves into position ready to respond to orders. Do you remember in Genesis 1:2 before all the let there be this and that start coming forth in verse three and on down, how the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters already in position before the Word said let there be anything? When I want to run in the park, since I am one body, all of me knows that I am about to take all of me for a run before any part of me is put into action. When God (the vastness of everything) was ready to start the work of creating the heaven and the earth, since He is all one, all of God was on alert that this project was about to start before it was announced to the world. So now when the Word (the will of God to be made visible) says let there be light, all of God is ready for there to be light. You see, before the Word became flesh, all of God worked to perfection like a perfect bag of popped pop corn with a Rolex watch as the timer: pop, pop, pop till it all was done on time without a kernel burned or a kernel left not popped. LOL! No, you can’t get it like that anymore since the Word became flesh: you guessed it, the adopted sons are now operating in the spot of the only begotten son, and the pop, pop, pop is popping all over the place with burnt kernels, and many kernels left not popped.
One example I like to use a lot because everyone already knows it to be true, and we don’t have to spend time fact checking. Jesus told His Apostles not to go forth with their commission until they received the promise of power. We all know the power that Jesus was referring to is the Holy Ghost: the word is not as effective by its little lonesome, but when you allow it to be made whole, then you can get the greater results that you seek. Jesus said it all the time that His Father is greater than He. If you are not into Father yet, how is that working out for you? Are you getting the hundredfold or are we just still doing better than most of the rest? And by the way, it took the Body of Christ a long time to warm up to the Holy Ghost. You see how much better things are for the Body since we moved on up in God: just getting barely over thirty fold results was not keeping us in the game. The rest of the world was just running away with all the goodies, and fun stuff. Thank you Holy Ghost for that power boost to get us back in the game!
Now the time has come for the Body of Christ to move into the greater, and show the world what our God is willing to do for those that He loves. It is Fathertime! It is time to make God whole again in our lives. Let me explain it to you like this. We just finished with Valentine’s day, right? How many of you just spoke the “word” only to your sweet heart on Valentine’s Day with all your soul and might: HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY SWEET HEART, I JUST LOVE YOU!!! How did that work out for you?? Then there were those of you that sought a higher return of happiness from your sweetheart. So you did as the first did, but you also looked into your resources and applied the “power” that you had at the hallmark store, pro flowers shop, along with some select dining all just for your sweet heart. You didn’t have to use all your soul and might like the person that only used the “word” on valentine’s day, and the statistics show us that you were very glad to answer us when we surveyed you with the same question, How did that work out for you? Unlike the first person that applied only the “word” at Valentine’s day, you answered the question with great joy, and you gave us all the time we needed without rushing us off the phone as did the person that only spoke the “word” to the sweet heart. Well, well, well, and what if you were really looking for the greatest level available for an even higher return of happiness from your sweetheart? We know the “word” alone will not do it, and we also know that we will need to look into our available resources to see if we have what is needed to make this happen. Jesus has already told us that the Father is greater than He, so we will need to look toward the Father for the answer. In other words, we will not find what we want in that which we already know. We already know that Valentine’s day has been the will for years, but what have you applied your hands to for years that will give you a higher fold result this year. The only reason that we are looking to Father for the greater is because the faith that you have applied to gain additional resources up to this time, still does not allow you to give to your sweetheart that one thing that will produce that greatest level of happiness that you desire. However, you did take the “word,” “He will supply all my needs”, and applied for a promotion. When they called you for the interview, you believed that the Holy Ghost was moving on your behalf: so in bodily form you took your nervous self into the interview in sync with the invisible “power” of God’s spirit, and you in God’s power got you the promotion. Nevertheless, supplying your needs is a promise from Jesus (the Word), and the Holy Ghost (the Power) will move with you in bodily form on any of your faith moves to make sure your needs are supplied: faith activity (the interview) that lines up with the “word of promise” (supply your needs), you and the Holy Ghost were able to bring to past your promotion.
So back to your Valentine’s day desire to make your sweet heart happier this year than the year before. Now, after you and the Holy Ghost had nailed down the new promotion, and you check all of your resources; you discover that you can do all the things that you did last year plus a gift card. This is good, but not exactly what you were hoping to do. So anyway, you stay positive and in faith because you know that Father has resources that your eyes have not seen nor have you ears heard. This is where you tap into the Father by expecting Him to release that which even the “Word” can not come forth with: the “word” is God’s known will, but the unknown vastness of Father is the inventory that is the greatest. When you finally decide to get into Father by expecting to run out of the “word” you know, so that you can run into the greater things that you don’t know, you just might see a fully paid full length mink coat cross your path just in time for Valentine’s day!!! When we did the survey on this person, he was still on the high from Father: let’s just say that this guy had the blessing of being slain in the mink!! We will have to call him back to get input concerning the extreme happiness of his sweet heart! Plus, I have to ask him the question since he’s into the Father now, HOW IS THAT WORKING OUT FOR YOU??!!
