We hear people say all the time that the Christian life is mainly about salvation, and the eternal life in the here and after. Some frown on the prosperity message as to say, just a lil bit that glitters, isn’t of God. Well, I agree that the most important part of the message is about salvation, and spending eternal life in heaven with the Father, and our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. However, Jesus’ spiritual-net must have been down that day because he evidently missed that memo from Kingdom headquarters, directing all executive department levels of the “Word” Godhead to only focus on life; and not to put any emphasis on having that life, even a lil bit, more abundantly. I know Jesus had to have miss it, because He’s the type of Son/son, that is more than glad to only say what his Father, The Chief Executive Over All “Will” Operations, wants him to say. And it was a totally different memo that Jesus sent out to all of his front line, executive ministers of the “will,” directing them to continue to pass it on to all members of his body even after he is gone, and right on up until the day he returns. Look here, let’s read what Jesus’ memo said, and still says: John 10:10, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” You see. I am inclined to believe what Jesus is saying, and I’m basing it from experience: I’m here to tell you that you can hope for good health and unspeakable joy in spirit, soul, and body, but if you can’t pay your bills, and at times, other family members’ bills; and if your transportation, can’t consistently get you to work, then there will not be much unspeakable joy to talk about. So I would say to them who oppose abundant living a lil bit, a similar reply that Jesus gave to Peter when he didn’t yet fully understand: get thee behind me Satan thief.
The Godhead operation is the one single thing after salvation, that changes the outcome of things in life as we go forth. Pre-Jesus, only certain ones were anointed for the work of the Lord, such as kings, prophets, and priest. Once Jesus paid our sin debt, and we became members of his Body, the door was wide open for you, and the door was wide open for me too. Jesus started and established the Body of Christ with him being the head, and first partaker in it. It pleased the Father that Jesus be given the fulness of God in bodily form: Colossians 2:9, “For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily; and Colossians 1:18, And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.” And we the church, the body where that fulness of the Godhead first dwelleth in our head member, can now access this fulness of the Godhead bodily just as Jesus did as a man.
So every new day experienced is another day that the Body of Christ matures, and develops to where it can operate more efficiently with the Godhead, than say yesterday, and all days before? Jesus modeled his life in the flow of the Godhead in order for us to know, and become skilled in the operation of the Godhead. So let’s follow Jesus’ model: Jesus spent the first thirty years of his life living , knowing, and teaching the “Word” only, as he went being about his Father’s business. Now could they have used some power to heal, and miracles to enable during Jesus first thirty years of life? I would say most definitely so; however, Jesus had a bigger purpose of order. Then Jesus, after fulfilling the “Word” as needed, he goes off into his operation of the “Holy Ghost” for another three years as the two now feed off each other: “Word” say what, “Holy Ghost” does what Word says! It is no surprise that the “Holy Ghost” came after the “Word” because it’s like that, and that’s the way you must do it too. Once the “Holy Ghost” operation part of his ministry was fulfilled, you know what part of the Godhead came last? That is correct: the “Father” always shows up for the finale because he’s the one with the times and seasons in his own power to finish what the “Word” and the “Holy Ghost” has ushered into the hour at hand. The “Father” usually takes the least amount of time to finish: here it took just the three days as it had been told in the word. Now Jesus did interact, and interchange between the God head as he processed along each level: this is what you will be skilled at doing everyday of your life as you move in and out of the Godhead in bodily form processing along each level.
There Is No Better Time Than Now To Have It More Abundantly because the Body is the most mature, and developed at the “Word,” and at the “Holy Ghost” levels than ever before. Just as Jesus showed early as the single member, and head of the hole body, he allowed thirty years to be given to the “Word” for it’s maturity, and development of his body. And likewise, years have been given to establish, and mature the body since Jesus left it in man’s hand. And so forth with the Holy Ghost with Jesus, and since with us: years have been given to it for the body to continue its development, and maturity. And now for the part that I like most, and the part that I believe Jesus liked the most also, the arrival to “Father” for the hour is at hand. Jesus was so excited after the three days in “Father”, he said to his “Father” to finish up so that we can get back to the glory that we had before the world was! As for you and me, can you see how the Body arriving to full maturity, and development to the “Father” is so great for us? We get to step right into “Father” much faster than ever before because we don’t have to wait on the “Word,” and the “Holy Ghost” to fulfill our maturity, and development levels. We have the “Word” as we need it, and we have the “Holy Ghost” at the level we need it, and now we just need to have the courage to step into “Father” as He passes by our hour at hand. Don’t let people rob you of your opportunity to step off the “Word,” and the “Holy Ghost” into your season with the “Father.” Peter tried to rob Jesus when his time had come. Jesus had stood on the “Word” only for thirty years, and he had worked the “Holy Ghost” with the “Word” for another three years to get his hour at hand. And the moment that the “Father” was passing by with the time and season in hand for Jesus to step into, Peter decides to attack and cut off the ear of one of the people sent to help usher Jesus into “Father.” If Jesus was some weak Christian who can be talked out of his or hers hour at hand, Peter the rock, would have been the tool used to make Jesus lose out, and miss the “Father” as he passes on by. I know you can think of a few times that you went on back to the good old reliable “Word” of God for a few more rounds, instead of stepping on into that season that you wanted as the “Father” just had to pass you on by. Stop It.
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good.
