You know, for whatever the reason, there is a whole lot of moving going on in the name of faith; and God did not say, Father says. In the child’s game, “Simon says,” if you want to be the winner of the game, your goal is to be the last player who has successfully followed all of the given commands. The key in the game is not just being able to follow the given commands, as almost anyone can touch toes, nose, and rub elbows. The real key to the game is for one to show enough self control, in order to touch toes, nose, and rub elbows only when Simon leads off the command by first saying “Simon says.” When walking in faith by the “Word” of God, the Father has just one request of us: “When I Want You To Move, Then Will You Move?” When moving in faith by the “Word” of God, how do we know when the Father wants us to move? Well, he will say “Simon says.” The real question that you want to ask is this, how does he say “Simon says” when he wants us to move? Jesus knew that his hour to die had come because of the fancy watch he was wearing, right? Of course not; Jesus knew that the Father was ready for him to move forward to die because the “Word” came to usher him into it. He knew that Judas had left the last get together early to go get the next stage of his final hour started. And it wasn’t just the agony upon Jesus in the garden, because for us sons not like the Son Jesus, there was still time to run away from the moment. However, when Jesus saw the traitor changed into his traitor apparel, and coming toward him accompanied by those who accepted him not as the “Word” says, Jesus already knew what the “Father says” was made flesh for him to move into it.
When you are walking in the “Word” by faith, your calling card to let you know that the Father wants you to move is the “Word” made flesh. Jesus knew what the scriptures proclaimed, but he also knew that they had more to do than to just be proclaimed. Jesus knew that the “Word” was life because that “Word” was once him now made flesh. In the beginning is always the “Word,” and was nothing made without it. Let’s read it: John 1:3-4 , “All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4) In him was life; and the life was the light of men.” So you see, when you get ready to move in faith as “Father says”, you don’t want to move until you see some of that “Word” already said be made flesh; and that is your light to know that you are on the path that he commands. Although Jesus was all knowing, operating as a man required him to walk by faith, and not by all knowing. Jesus knew the “Word” on the traitor, Jesus knew what was said about his own not accepting him, and Jesus knew his boys would scatter from him as was said by the “Word;” and with all that knowing, Jesus still had to walk the “Word” he knew so well into its substance to be made flesh. We can’t just know the “Word,” but we have to move into it and dress the part: we have to put it on when it comes at us in order to get to where we are going. So in the game, “Simon says” is required to be said first to move forward with hopes of being the last one standing to win the game. And when walking by faith, the substance of things hoped for, or putting it another way, when some of the “Word” is coming at you in flesh apparel, now is when faith wants you to move on it, and dress into that substance. If you don’t see any substance (some “Word made flesh) there is no reason for you to make any movement since there is no new material presented to add to making that which you hoped for. In the scripture: Romans 10:17, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” So you know that you have the faith because you have the “Word,” and you have the faith that was transferred to you by your hearing the “Word.” And also in the scripture: Hebrews 11:1, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Now when you see substance or “Word made flesh,” you can move on it in assurance being that you know the “Word” that it should be dressed like. Jesus knew it was time to move because the flesh substance coming at him looked just like the things Father says, made flesh. You will know also when you should move because the flesh substance coming at you will look just like the things Father says, made flesh.
Wow, Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good.
