What do you do when the tool you need is not in the tool box? Yeah right, that’s a good one! I can imagine hearing someone say, run to Lowes, and pick one up! lol. The first thing you do is to remind yourself of this one scripture that keeps everything alive and well for you to keep the faith to find it: Ecclesiastes 1:9, “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.” In other words, the tool you need today has been needed before, now let’s go find out where it is today. Let me make sure that we are all on the same page, we are not speaking of tools that are relatives of the hammer and the screw driver: No, the tool you need is what ever will make your life whole right now, that thing is the tool we need to locate.
I like to make this short and simple because that’s just the way it is for me when it comes to the things that I need. Obviously, you don’t have the power to get it, or else we wouldn’t be asking the question what if it’s not in my toolbox. By the way, did you surf around the house good, the friendly neighborhood, the cross town or cross country friends and relatives? Someone has had to have used the tool you need before, and may can help out with that or tell you something that sends you on your way. Another thing to always keep in mind, and this is part of your expectation, and that is you know God knows about this need already; and you just want to surf around, look around just to see if He has already placed the tool somewhere in your world already. You know how he is: always trying to be a step ahead so that he ends up being on time.
When you surf around, or look around, you are not only making sure of what may or may not be around you in the physical, but you are intentionally going to the heavenly internet, the Spirit, and check in to see which level of the Spirit may have what you need. And once you know them fairly well that labor among you, your surfing time gets cut in half. And say you know that your prayer partner has the revelation gifts of “the word of knowledge, and “the word of wisdom;” you want to go straight to that person for counsel, and maybe prayer. The Spirit maybe willing to drop some info your way through that person’s gifting tools. When Christians need something from God, they just need to get to the right clearance level in the spirit to find it, and then to get it. We need to be at peace with our God, and not get into a panic: everything we need is in the knowing of the Spirit somewhere in the pipe line. The main thing is to know that Jesus left us fully able to have all our tool needs met. The problem is knowing where to look in the Spirit.
Let’s say that the prayer partner did not receive any revelation to help us, so then what, keep surfing the Spirit. It maybe that a revelation was not needed yet, the Holy Ghost generally works in support of the written or rhema Word spoken to you. I am sure at this point of your need, that you are already taking in as much of the written word as you can on your tool need subject. The more you read the more chances that the word you need to move closer to your need may come up. The word of God that you are reading may contain the faith that you need to send you in the right direction. If revelation had been given by your prayer partner, but you had yet to receive the faith needed to move on that revelation, then what? The faith that comes by hearing the word of God, has nothing to do with your faith capacity. Your faith capacity can be full, but contain none of the faith to boost you, like the faith that comes at that moment when you need the boost. I have full faith, but that doesn’t mean that I have the boost of faith that comes to identify a word that’s hot: a hot word is a word that is ready, and needing to be moved on now. I don’t personally make the decision on when God is moving on a thing. When God needs me to move “now” on a thing, I will get that boost from that hot word because faith is in it to do just that: it has nothing to do with all the faith that I have already. Here is a simple example of how the faith from a word comes to boost you. I needed to finish a bathroom repair, and I kept pushing it down my to do list every time it would climb up some. So days kept passing; I knew how to get it fix, and I had all the faith substance of the thing hoped for in hand, I just needed to do it. So my wife and I was just sitting out talking, and she says that her sister wanted to come and visit us soon. You never know what word that you hear that will bring the faith to boost you when you hear it, but it comes when it comes. It was like this energy (faith) just came and set me off. There are people in the body of Christ that are anointed to just set you off: sometime the need isn’t in the tool box yet because you haven’t been set off yet to get it done. Jesus left the anointed ones to set you off: Apostle, Prophet, Pastor, Evangelist, and Teacher along with the staffing arm helpers of the word. It could be a workshop, a sermon, or a bible study where you get that boost to move forward. And once you get that boost to move, the Holy Ghost is ready and willing to assist you in every way the word is boosting you to go.
You know that I was coming one more time with what happens if I did receive the boost, and the Holy Ghost did assist me in Power Faith, in Revelations, and gave me much edification from prophecy, and I’m still looking for my need? Once again, just remember that all you need is still in the Spirit to have and to hold, you just got to go on up in the clearance levels to get it. You may say I have exhausted the Word Godhead, and the Holy Ghost Godhead using all that I could get my hands on: In the Word Godhead I have went before the five fold anointed ministries, stayed in the word, and received boost to my faith. And in the Holy Ghost Godhead I have received from others who are gifted in all three forms of the word gifts applied to me, revelations given to me from those with the gifts, and even applied power faith from my own gift along with lessons taught to me from the Holy Ghost; and I still need that one tool in my box. Let’s go get that last clearance level so that you can get the tool that you still need.
The last thing to remember as you process through the Godhead is that you may or may not need the complete fullness to receive that you need. It really depends on the time and season of the need. It’s like this, my child doesn’t need me to use the pop corn maker, but she does need me to make sure that there is a pop corn maker. We mature as we walk long time with God, and with most things, we just need him to make sure the pop corn maker is there and working. When we have a greater need than where we have processed currently in the fullness of God, then we will need a greater level of God. God keeps certain things under his control, but it doesn’t mean that we can’t get to them. It’s like with all things, there are a few that would ruin it for all so God keeps some things to himself until really needed. Let’s go to the final Godhead left, and that would be the Father Godhead. When you got to have that which you have not been able to process up to this point, you got to go to the Father. Why did Jesus say that the Father is greater than he was, let’s read that scripture: 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.”If the Father is greater than Jesus at this time, he would have also been greater than Jesus at the time before Jesus was the Word made flesh; and the Father would have even been greater than the Word from the beginning before the world was.
Let’s finish this up. This will show you why the Father is where the bucks stop when we get to a place where we can’t process our need through the “Word,” and with the power of the “Holy Ghost.” This is where the fullness of all of God must work together as one for the victory. Jesus had the fullness given to him in bodily form, but you and I have to surf the Spirit as we process through the fullness until we get it fully. So let’s go back to the beginning to see why Father is the greater, and why he is the only Godhead member that holds this power. It is all by design, and purpose: each body part of James, me, is only trying to be itself as all members of me make a one complete me: my legs are different from my arms, but they both are individual members of me that make a one complete me. I have arms, legs, eyes,and on and on, but there are not three or four James: there is just one complete James. John 1, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God.” So we know from scripture that the “Word” was with God in the beginning. Where was the “Word” before it had it’s beginning with God? John 1:18, “No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.” And when was he first in the bosom of the Father? John 17:5, And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. Since Jesus was the “Word” made flesh: by reversing the flow of things, Jesus, the flesh returned to “Word”, would make the “Word” in the bosom of the Father before the world was. The “Word” was in the bosom of the Father until the Father brought it forth, similar to a baby coming forth from its mothers stomach at it’s beginning. The “Word’ was with the Father before the world was just like a baby is with its mother waiting to enter the world. We all know the baby is there, but it’s not dated until it takes on its own life on the day it is born. The “Word” was there with God before the world was, but the beginning for the “Word”, just as with the already conceived baby, begins when it takes on its own life. And we know by scripture that although God, and the “Word” are one, they each have life in themselves: John 5:26, For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself.
The ‘Word” lay conceived in the bosom of God before the world was, but life in himself for the “Word” would begin at the first thing made to come forth in the world, let’s say one of the first let it bes. The one thing that makes the “Word” God, is that everything that it is, is God. The “Word” did not have a will because it is the will. It was brought forth to make or show that which God wanted to be known. Before the “Word” came forth from the bosom of God, God just kept all of his vast will to himself. And when God couldn’t keep the vast will with its times and season contained any more, just like a baby when its time comes, the “Word” just birth forth with life in himself to make God’s will Known. Here is the greater part, just as when the “Word” was in God’s bosom, and God’s will continue to grow, no one even knew all that vast will was there increasing even greater. We all know the spoken, and shown will now because of the “Word” coming forth, but still only the Father knows the vast “Will” that has not yet come forth to us. It is so much more vastness in Father where the water has not broke yet to come forth, and Father is the greater because only He knows what He is caring to term: then at its time, the little bouncing baby “word” will come forth. We know the “Word,”but there is so much more there that has not come forth yet: the greater.
