The word of God can be read in unison by all. The version of course, may differ a bit, but the reading gives basically the same understanding. What makes Father greater than His written word, or His only begotten son, the Word? And by the way, Jesus is one of the first to say that his Father is greater than he. John 14:28, Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I. And when Jesus was called good Master, you know how He replied. Mark 10:18, And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God. Father is the only one good, and the one that is the greater because of two main reasons: one is His headship over the Godhead as Father, and the other is that He is all Spirit. In the state that Jesus was in at the time He said this, He was a man in flesh. And you know what it means to live in the flesh: man or God in flesh has to deal with the law of sin. Romans 7:18 , For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. So Father is up a few on any flesh dweller simply because in His state, He does not have to deal with it. He’s already the only good, and greater just with that alone. However, there is so much more to the state of God as Father than there is to the state of God as the rest of the Godhead.
As I said above, we can all read the exact same word from the bible in unison, and know that we have all received from God. However, when it comes to Father, we can’t read in unison because everything from Father is authentic. As we have all read in unison from scripture, for example, in 1 Corinthians 2:9, But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. This scripture can’t be referring to the written word since eye hath seen, and ear heard, and all that is written has entered into our heart from the time we first read it. And remember, the word of God, came forth from God, as a distinct spiritual life of God. This foreshadowed in the spirit what was going to happen in the flesh later on in the essence of Jesus, the only begotten son who as the word did, came forth of the Father. And once again, it was Jesus to be one of the first to talk about the authentic knowledge of Father, for example, Mark 13:32, But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. The knowledge of this great event is only known of by Father. So what about all of the events, all of the times and seasons of things to come. According to scripture in which we can all read in unison, Acts 1:7, And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. Jesus did not say that it is not for you to know this time or this season, no: He said the times or the seasons(not one), which the Father hath put in his own power. So in order to know your authentic time or season as to where, and when to enter into it, you are going to have to know more than just the written word. You are going to have to know the Father. He has kept in his own power the knowledge of your times and/or seasons. So how do we get to the Father? Jesus as the answer to that also as we can read together in unison. John 14:6, Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. I know, so many thought that this verse only meant their salvation, and getting into Heaven to be with Jesus and the Father. Nope, it does mean salvation first, but after salvation, then you got to get out here before you can get to Heaven.
One reason I keep mentioning reading the written word in unison is because that is just about all, we as individuals will start off as having in common. Everyone is different, everyone has a different set of challenges, and everyone has a different calling. Even the callings that appear to be similar require a different set of solutions. You can ask any pastor, and they all will tell you that “it isn’t no flock like the flock I got.” Similar callings, but totally different solutions required. The same goes for all callings, regardless of what they maybe. That is why we only get to share in unison the written word because it is about to lead us into our own individual paths of authenticity. What God has for us as individuals, is no group thing: once we get started on our path, the unison is over. We help each other, agree with each other, and pray for each other, but we can’t be as one in unison with each other. That relationship is how you get to enter into your time and season as you become one with Father. You will need your authentic word from Father to enter into that which only he has the power over. So what is only in His own power, can not be in any other’s own power.
Father sent two comforters to help escort us: Jesus the Word to save us, and the Holy Ghost to teach us. Together they will escort us to the Father where our times and season await us. We don’t really think of Jesus as a comforter, but that is what he was and is to us once He saved us. Again Jesus called himself a comforter as we can read the scripture in unison. John 14:16, And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; So You can only pray for another to come and replace one if there was one already here. So Jesus a comforter already here, prayed for the Father to send another comforter to replace Him when he leaves. I will do a full post next time on the step by step process of how to be escorted to Father by the “Word” and the “Holy Ghost”. Father does not rush this process, but He does seek sons that are willing to walk on the wireless cord with him. You will get all the support you need, but you just won’t feel the attachment to the cord. And Jesus is not going to let his undeveloped children come to walk with the Father too soon. He will only let sons that are ready to walk with the Father in spirit and in truth. In Father there is no word of unison to step up on with the group. There is only His spirit and His truth: if you didn’t really believe the truth of the written word that we all recite in unison, it’s no way you can believe the truth of the word that eyes have not seen, nor ears heard when Father shows it to you. If when you see what Father shows, and not believe it, then you are not going to step up, and enter into your time and/or your season. Things don’t move slowly with God because of God, things move slowly with God because of us not being sure. Do you remember how a less than two week trip took 40 years to complete? Do you remember how God rested from all His work after only six days. No, this being slow concept is not because of God. God is slow because of what we give Him to work with. We usually choose the faith opportunity that we believe in according to our level. We have to learn to step into the faith opportunities that Father presents that will match the level of the need and His will. This will usually be out of our comfort zone. The written Word keeps immature children safe from getting into more than they can bear, however, walking with Father is to allow us to get into more of that in which we can trust Him to bear. And that is the difference: sticking with the written word of unison for forty years or stepping up to that word with Father that eye has not seen nor ear heard for just six days metaphorically speaking. I will go through the process on how to walk that walk on my next post.
