Since I was personally involved, I had a front row seat to view how this one lady found a way to stand it. I mean with me having been a Godhead Strategist for a couple of decades, I’ve been involved with helping quite a few people bring to pass their word that they were standing on for God to work out. Usually a person can stand the moves of God on simple request on their own, but the more complex the request, the data will show a major increase in the numbers of those not being able to stand it without the proper skill level assisting them. This also helps explain why so many members of the body of Christ fail to receive the manifestation from Father of their more complex request. It is not that we fail to believe, but it is fact that we fail to have the skill needed to receive at the more complex levels of faith activity. Remember what Elijah told Elisha, Thou hast asked a hard thing: nevertheless, if thou see me when I am taken from thee, it shall be so. I know that God is God, but there are some hard scenarios that require we find a way to stand it while God finishes up the work of bringing it to pass. Oh, and let me be clear, the hard part is on us, not God. Before God involved man with a stance in the process, He would just zip right through any of His development campaigns. He would just say a few of His most creative words that He used to complete His “in the beginning” campaigns: “Let there Be ………..”, and be it was.
OK, let’s get on with this spiritual text-book reality of this one lady making her stand to allow God to work out her miracle. The thing that we can all relate to is how it started: it was not just a surprise out of the blue, but it was the type that we all Dred hearing of, the untimely death of a forty-nine year old family member. This lady is a senior citizen living on a relative low-income, so any financial event that requires out of budget money is a problem. She needed to get to the funeral, but the funeral was four states away totaling roughly 900 miles between her and her destination. If this was you or me coming from her location, we would probably be talking about one rest stop, one more fuel fill-up, a drive thru restaurant, and good driving music all totaling around twelve hours to completion. Oh, yeah, we can do the plane thing too! Lol. So when I found out that she needed to get to the funeral, it’s like no big deal, I can help make that happen. My wife and I live in LA, we can only fly when we visit our family in the summer on the east coast if we want to get there in less than a week. I’m thinking to myself, let me just spread some of all my American Express reward points right into a plane ticket to and from the funeral. No problem here: I don’t even need to bother the skill and power of God to get this done. I have an earned freebie right here in my wallet, right? Nah, you know that God wasn’t going to miss this opportunity to allow me to get some training exercises in out of this. You know how the military does training exercises all over the world to stay combat ready, well, my commander and Chief of the supreme Kingdom forces of Heaven does the same thing. I should have known that Father would do this to help keep my skill level ready to combat anything trying to stop His word from coming to pass. One of the first things that came out of this ladies mouth was that God will make a way for her to get to the funeral. That was a red alert in itself to me saying to get ready for some exercises.
So what made this seemly done deal, a deal that would require a very high skill level in the ways of God to make it happen? Anyone can pop out a credit card to use reward points, but anyone can’t pop out full faith, full trust, and a fully developed arsenal of the fruit of the spirit. And to top it all off, a little knowledge and understanding of the movements of the Godhead is strongly suggested. This lady revealed to me at the last-minute that her grandson was graduating from the eighth grade on the evening before the funeral. She had helped raised the boy, and she was not going to miss his graduation or the funeral services. The graduation was set for 6 pm Thursday evening, and the funeral was set for 1:30 pm on Friday afternoon. Here lies the crux of the matter: flights departing her location, and arriving at the desired destination location had dropped from a few dozen to just three by the time she made her stand to attend both services. It’s not everyday that you find someone whose situation really required a God to make it happen: we were now at that point. Most things that we give God credit for, did not require His services at all, but it doesn’t hurt to say thank you Jesus anyway.
Usually, I’m working at the Father tier of God to finish bringing a word to pass that some one is standing on to manifest, but with the lady desiring to stay for the grandson’s graduation, we were about out of substances to work with. Now we had to bring the full Godhead back into play starting at the word tier: we needed more substance of the things hope for because all of the roundtrip flights (substance hoped for) were full. Now I could see that Father was ready to begin the skill exercises with me because it seemed as though the lady would not be able to attend the funeral since all the round trip flights required her departing before her grandson’s graduation: exercise on, Let’s get it started! This is now a hard thing to bring to pass, but the one who’s skilled knows that it can still happen if she can find a way to be there at the end when God finishes it. So this is what I did to help her stand while God worked it out. I moved into the Holy Spirit tier of God in order to buy more time. I just continued to search the flight schedule just to give God an opportunity to make some changes in her favor if it be His will. Since the Holy Spirit had gifted me with power faith, I could continue to exercise that which seem futile and keep her hope alive. I went through this for a couple of hours without seeing any changes, but I could still say to the lady truthfully that I’m still looking. This is where the unskilled in Godhead strategy will deem this fruitless, and no longer productive. They forget how Elijah kept praying over the dead boy when most physicians would have called the time of death. They forget how this same Elijah kept sending his servant back looking for rain when most weather- persons would have chalked it up to a hard west wind taking the rain in another direction. They forget how wroth Elisha was at the King for only smiting the arrows three times, when if the king had smite the arrows five or six times, he would have completely consumed his enemy. The skilled son operating in the ways of his Father does not forget, so I continued to search for another couple of hours until what I needed showed up: whew!
Listen, this is God right? He is supposed to be able to do all things right? What is making a grandson’s graduation, and a funeral 900 miles away in 16 hours with no roundtrip flights available, no trains connecting, and no buses fast enough at this point in time to even get close for a believing lady with very little money: A hard thing for the lady, but possible for God if she can stand while He continues to work it out. So with me being skilled, and gifted in power faith, I keep hope alive: believe it or not, I’m still searching for flights while knowing that I was just buying time for God to do something for the lady. Then the lady called me again for an update with time running out, and I hear a new word spoken unaware by the lady that gives me the new direction. She said that her best friend from high school called to see if she was still going to make it to the funeral. Her friend also said that her car had been in the shop, and that she was in this particular city about 40 miles away from the funeral visiting a family member until Friday. Bingo: the Father tier of God was giving me insight that if I could confirm a few logistics that I just may be able to put together this thing for this lady. I instantly received a word of wisdom from the Holy Spirit to book the lady a one way flight to the city where her best friend would be at until Friday. This thing was beginning to come together for the lady as long as she could stand in faith and be there at the end when it is finish.
You know what happened next, the lady told her best friend that she could fly into the city where she was, and make it to the funeral if she would wait up for her flight to land. By this time there was only one one-way flight left departing from the lady’s location, and arriving at the location where her best friend was currently. I know that Father had that flight reserved for the lady as part of His means to get her to the funeral, but He couldn’t tell us that until it was time for us to know. This is one difference in the Word tier of God, and the Father tier of the same one God. The word is the known will for us to work out with our faith now, while the Father controls the unknown will for us to work out with our faith later when the seasons and times for it to be known becomes now. The Holy Spirit tier of God empowers us to work in bodily form to bridge those two together in order to get the desired manifestations if we can stand it while God works it out. You see, Jesus was given the fullness of God, so He being the only begotten Son had all of this in Him in bodily form. Jesus was all God, and it pleased the Father to bestow the fullness of God upon Jesus. You and I (adopted sons) on the other hand, we have to move in and out of the Godhead tiers based on the gifting, and anointing given to each of us. Plus we need to recognize the spiritual movements of the Word, Holy Spirit, and Father so that we can become one with them with our bodies with each’s movements. Jesus is the visible God in His fullness in bodily form. You and I make God visible when we become one with the Godhead movements in bodily form to bring to pass His manifestations.
I will finish part 2 of the Lady’s miraculous story in the next post. You don’t want to miss its ending.
It’s Truly Father time!!!
