When you know what’s going on, when it’s going down, and how to apply yourself in the situation at the most opportune time, then you know what time it is. Knowing what time it is can determine the outcome in your life for many things. Let’s take a step back into the basic simplicity of this concept of knowing what time it is. If I have a doctor’s appointment on Friday, but I didn’t make note of the time of the appointment, I have just effected the outcomes of many lives. I used this simple example so that you would get it quickly without much need of explanation: so you got it. Everything from wasting time, to missing your time, to having medical professionals ready to handle your special need, to robbing others in need of an appointment, and the list goes on and on just because you didn’t know the time. You were willing to be on time, your attitude to make your appointment was great, you had insurance along with your co-pay in hand, but you didn’t know what time the appointment was.
Let’s graduate from the simple to the more complex function of our faith walk in God. The best example of course is always one that involves Jesus. Even as a child, His parents had to know what time it was in order to save His life. This is what happens when you know what time it is. You can pack up, and get your family out of town before the soldiers show up at your door by decree to kill your son. You see, talking about tick tock time is one thing, but talking about the times that you need to meet with your life, is whole different thing. Also think about how Jesus responded to the Roman leaders after he had been betrayed, and turned over for them to determine if He should be put to death. Since Jesus knew what time it was, He was not going to fight the opportunity given to Him to fulfill His purpose for coming to earth in the first place. This was not about being innocent of the alleged crimes, but it was knowing what time it was. Jesus knew that He had walked this earth in patience waiting for this time to come. When you know what time it is, you know how to move into that time without letting the opportunity pass by you. You know, the Roman leaders may have let Jesus go if all of that anointing were to begin explaining how innocent He was of the crime. However, Jesus knew what time it was, and how He needed to act with that time.
How about us, the members of the Body of Christ, how are we to know what time it is? Jesus was not just any man, but He was a fine tuned Spiritual Son of God that was in sync with His Father’s movement. Well, there it is: you and I have to become better tuned spiritual sons of God in sync with Father’s movement so that we will know what time it is also. The other thing is our mindset, we have to begin to, as we say, take one for the team. We will not know the time if we make everything personal about ourselves. There will be many times when you have to unrightfully take the hit in order to keep you right in line with Father’s movements. Remember, we are not of this world, so we have to know what time it is so we will operate appropriately to receive our world results at the right time. Joseph didn’t do the wrong that he paid 13 years for, but in the world that we are from, those years were his door into his purpose. Yes, it is hard to decrease at the right time in order for the Father to increase, but it is the way of His world. This is why Father has made Himself accessible to us so that we can move into the opportunity when it presents itself. So look up at your word clock, and see what time it is. If you don’t see no action around you that connects to your word clock, your time is not yet at hand. Make sure that you continue to adjust to the situations in your life by using your fruit of the spirit. Learn how to produce all that you need to keep you on your word course. If the situation is trying your patience, produce more of it. The kingdom can produce more patience or any of the nine fruit until your change come. In our world, we don’t have natural time, but Father will move at the fastest paste for you not to miss the opportunity when it comes. So remember to forget (lol) about the natural ways, and always be ready to jump into your spiritual ways by knowing what time it is. It Is Fathertime!!
