Oh, which “It” am I talking about: yeah, you are right about that, Jesus did finish a lot of Its, one by one, while here on earth. So let’s read the “It” that I am talking about from scripture. This It would be the one that make any other It happen. Hebrews 12:2, “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Jesus came to earth, and did what no man, or a third of the angels had ever been able to do before, and that was to stand up against Satan and finish the will of God. Jesus took his birth right, as the Son of God, and created a path in victory by his faith against every mountain that tried to stop him from the start to the finish. Jesus started, and finished this path called faith just for us. So are you ready to capitalize even more than ever before on your birthright, as adopted sons and co-heirs, who follow the path of faith carved out by Jesus to finish all faith as he did? And we might as well grab the rewards that come with finishing, for life on earth is made easier when you collect on the spoils of victory from exercising your faith.
So who are we going to collect our reward from after each finish, the Father! Hebrews 11:6, But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Now Jesus, thinking forest and not tree, set the path to follow in faith, the one thing that we must have to please God: so we have no choice but to have pleased the Father once we finish because Jesus made the path that we followed in faith. Now I want to show you in reverse the tree of faith in order for you to see the whole forest of faith. The one elephant tree in the forest room that over shadows the forest every time is of course the cross tree. The cross was the main reason that Jesus came in order to pay our sin debt, and save our soul; however, for practical living purposes we must understand that the same process applies to all trees in the faith forest. So let’s keep this simple, we all know that Jesus was not going to be rewarded for his faith in going to the cross, by being raised from the dead to sit at the right hand of Glory without the Father overseeing this operation. There was no one else left who holds the times and the seasons in his own power: Jesus hour was now at hand, so the time and season for this must now be at hand in order for it to happen. The Father moving as one with all the moves of Jesus, and the Holy Ghost along this path of faith to the finish, was there ready, able and more importantly willing to reward Jesus for his finish.
I went that way with it to refocus our minds on all the other trees of faith that had to be finished along the way by Jesus before the elephant in the room finish would happen. We live in this world, our purpose is not one to die on the cross to save our souls: Jesus already did that and got on up out of here, and still lives now. And since we must still live here, and we can’t get on up out of here to live again until after Jesus returns, we need to stop leaving so many rewards on the table. We need these rewards here on earth in order to live in abundance. Jesus always knew, and called on the rewarder of his faith, and collected from all those other faith trees along the way up to the main tree, the cross. We like Jesus, have many trees that try our faith along the way, not just the one main calling tree. We need to start and finish those mountain trees in our path, and receive the rewards along the way in order to keep replenished. John 11:41-42, “Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me. And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.” We have to be like Jesus, we have to just know that Father hast heard us, and that he will reward us for our faith, and do “It.” The other thing to remember is that others around you may not know that Father hast heard you: this was the reason Jesus said it out loud so that they may believe that his Father had sent him. Always keep the two concepts separated so that you may receive your reward from your knowing, and that they may believe once they see you do what you said Father sent you to do.
