Hey Bill, wait up, I’ve been trying to catch up with you for the last three blocks. Bill replies, I heard someone calling my name, but I didn’t see anyone trying to wave me down. Well in the beginning from the first block was me, and that word you heard to be near and dear to you was me, and that word that you couldn’t see coming from anyone nearby trying to wave you down was with me. The same word was there back in the beginning of the first block with ME. I knew I wasn’t in position for you to see ME yet, but I knew that once you heard MY word, it would let you know that it was ME. This little mini-story explanation of a friend trying to catch up with another friend on behalf of the ONE that sent him, betrays that the role is being played by four different characters. Since we have seen this script play out in its entirety on a spiritual level, it is clear to us that these roles are all being played by one character.
Now where have we seen this play out spiritually before to where all roles are basically being manifested from the one? Let’s see, ah, God. In John 1:1-2 it says, 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. And we also need to add Bill’s role from the above paragraph. Bill’s role can be found a little farther down in John 1:14, And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. It’s easy to see three of the characters roles coming from the one source of God. The word of God, the spirit of God, and the will of God all make up the one unified God. For example, Let’s say God’s will is for it to be light. We know this to be His will because the word of God will come forth to reveal it to us as God wills it. Then the spirit of God will move on what the word of God reveals to bring it to pass. It’s like when the one me becomes hungry, and I want to eat. If I’m depending on people like God does since the creation of Adam, I can’t just keep my will to eat all to myself. I will not get my will revealed to others if there are no words coming forth to say what it is that I want to happen. So the one me must now reveal my will to eat by saying it out loud to someone other than myself. Then the same one me will use my powerful resources like money, car, kitchen, or whatever I need to move on to bring to pass food for me to eat. Yeah, God had it going on before He included man in the equation. He could just will it, reveal it, and be done sealing it all it one motion. Now, with us in the picture, it’s no telling when His will may come to pass with us having to unify all the movements.
Now back to how Bill’s character comes from the same source as the other three: the word, the spirit, and the will of God. As mentioned earlier, John 1:14 says, And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. Bill is representing Jesus in the mini-story explanation stated in paragraph one. The “word” of God which is God, and was with God was made to be flesh. So we can easily see how the spiritual trinity, and the physical begotten son all play a different role, but all come, and make up the one God. Bill was sent here to establish, and show us in the physical how the body of Christ will need to walk in the power of the unseen God. Jesus came as God in bodily form, but He walked out his purpose in the power of the unseen God as do you and I. Jesus is no longer here in the physical, but He left us with access to the fullness of God to walk in spirit and in truth.
God had prepared for Jesus to come to us from the beginning of time. You can see that the spirit birthing of Jesus had already taken place way before the time and season even came to make the “word” flesh and send Him. I like how God carried the spirit Jesus around with Him concealed within the bosom of His “word” so He would know how to operate as one with the fullness of God once He took on flesh form. If you look closely at the scripture again in John 1:1-2 where it says, 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 verse 2 where it says “the same was in the beginning with God,” the same what was in the beginning with God, all the things that was stated in verse 1. The “word” had already been made equal with God by having the fullness of God given to the “word” concealing the spirit of Jesus in the beginning. God did not wait for the time to come when the “word” would become flesh to give the physical Jesus all power. He gave the spirit Jesus (concealed in His Word) the fullness of God in the beginning, again, preparing the way to extend the one unified God to us on earth years later.
In Colossians 1:19 it says, For it pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell; and in Colossians 2:9 it says, For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. You see how it pleased God to give Jesus the fullness of the Godhead bodily: but when did this all happen? It happened in the Beginning. John 1:1 says In the beginning the “word” was God, and Jesus was the “word” made flesh. Then if the “word” was God in the beginning, and the “word” was made Jesus in the flesh later, then Jesus was given the fullness of God from the beginning. Jesus then came and walked this earth as a man, and not as a God. He wanted to leave the model with us on how to walk in the power of spirit, and truth: the unseen God.
Here’s what Jesus, and the Father needs from the Body of Christ now. Let’s first replace Bill in my mini-story explanation above with your own name. Jesus has left the building. He is physically no longer with us, but alive and well, in spirit and in truth. Here’s the catch. You and I, however, we are here in bodily form. Jesus needs us to walk in the power of God in bodily form as He did in His example, and model given to us. The Body of Christ has grown-up, and it is at maturity. Jesus, and Father needs us to operate as such. If Jesus was here physically, we have a good idea of how He would operate based on scripture record keeping of His actions, activities, and feats. It is now our time to bring it home. Remember how Jesus told the Apostles not to go forth with their commission until they received the promise. If they had went forth with the word of God only, they would not have had the power to bring it to pass. They were now the Bill in the mini-story explanation just like we are today. We in the Body today are no longer waiting for the promise, we’ve had the promise for a very long time. What we are waiting for now is just closure to many promises that we have been waiting on God to close out favorably on our behalf.
What you’ve really been waiting to hear from Jesus, and His Father is the direction to change how you see things working out spiritually. It’s like a dance, one person usually follows the lead of the other. God needs us to change the lead that we are following. The word we believe in, and the power to bring it to pass has been our focus. We have used, and followed both to maturity. We have reached a stall because the “word” and the “Holy Ghost” are ready to unify with the Father who has the times and seasons in His control. Father needs you to follow His lead now. The “word” and “Holy Ghost” power needs us to follow Father’s lead now to make God’s action all unified as the one God. Remember, Jesus is the unified God, but that only worked when He was here with us. Darn, the Apostles didn’t really have to fast, and stuff until He left. Once the bridegroom physically left, we had to operate within the Godhead of the unseen Spirit of God. We will keep our maturity in the “word”, we will keep our maturity in the power of the “Holy Ghost” as well, but now we will look for Father to lead us to closure. There comes a time when we must not only have a good talk, but we must show that it was more than just talk. The time is now to bring to pass the “word” of God, in the power of the “Holy Ghost” as Father unifies the action of the one God. Jesus knew how to unify the spirit of God because He was God. You and I took a lot longer to get to this spot than Jesus, but He had an advantage since from the beginning.
So let’s follow Father’s lead, and do as Jesus would do, make Father proud you’re a son. Keep what you have built-in God. Everything is built precept upon percept, and line upon line. It is now time for the percept, and line of Father. As of today follow Father’s lead: OPERATE LOOKING TO CLOSE THE DEAL. NO LONGER OPERATE TO WAIT. FOCUS ON OPERATING FOR CLOSURE. THE TIMES AND SEASON TO BRING TO PASS ALL OF YOUR LONGING PROMISES AND DESIRES ARE SIMPLY IN FATHER’S CONTROL. FATHER WANTS YOU TO HAVE IT ALL, BUT YOU MUST ACT LIKE YOU ARE HIS SON. STOP LOOKING TO HAVE IT ALL, AND HAVE IT ALL!
REMEMBER THIS, THERE WAS ONE CARPENTER’S SON THAT ACTED LIKE HE WAS SOMETHING ELSE: JESUS. HOW ARE YOU ACTING? I AM A SON OF THE MOST HIGH. HE MEANS BUSINESS. WHAT DO YOU MEAN?
