Now take the starting pitcher in a baseball game: the pitcher’s job is to shine as deep into the game as possible. The manager of the team will be feeling really good about the pitcher’s outing if the pitcher is still in the game, and is still shining after the sixth inning. And in most camps, the first part of the strategy would be working out the way that the manager hoped it would be; because the starting pitcher would not still be in the game pitching at this stage of the game if it were not. The game has also approached the stage for the manager to consider if the time has come to add more shine to the mound in the form of relief, or to leave the mound to continue in the shine that is now left there with the starting pitcher. The dilemma that the manager faces is determining as close as he can on the shine side, the best time to relieve his starting pitcher for a fresh replacement full of shine. The manager does not want to turn a very successful outing by the starting pitcher into a disappointment, only because the manager went for more shine than the starter had left to give. The manager has to decide to make the next move before the starting pitcher’s shine runs out; and he is only able to do this at the right time, by already having a plan to replace the starting pitcher with a finisher, before the game ever starts. You have to know from previous experience with those that labor amongst you, how they have usually performed at certain stages of the game, in order to know when the time for consideration to relieve that one may have come. And if the manager looks up to find the starting pitcher in the middle of having one of those rare special pitching days, then you just go with it, for no one can plan for that day.
Now take the Christian walking in the word to bring to pass that which is hoped for: the Christian’s job is to shine into every opportunity that lines up with the word of promise, by fully exhausting each opportunity deep into the Godhead process as possible. As the Christian shines into each word opportunity, the Godhead is going to be well pleased with the Christian’s outing if all that can be done to stand is done, and the Christian is still standing to exhaust the full shine of the word to the end of the Godhead process. In regards to the Godhead, all is well as the Christian has exhausted all the opportunities in which the word shined on at this stage for the things hoped for; And the Christian could not stand ready to shine on into the next stage, unless all was well at this stage concerning the things hoped for. Now the Christian not only has the job to shine into every opportunity that lines up with the word of promise, but at the end of the word Godhead process, the Christian must determine if there is enough shine for the finish, or does more shine need to be added for the finish. The dilemma for the Christian is of two-fold: first, the Christian does not want to exhaust all the shine afforded by grace at this Godhead level, and it not be sufficient for the finish to receive the things hoped for. And second, the Christian does not want to exhaust all the shine afforded by grace at this Godhead level, and it be sufficient for the finish to receive the things hoped for, but the Christian remained on this level going in circles to the disappointment of the full Godhead. So if you have exhausted all, but do not have the finish to step into, the Holy Ghost power will give you what you call for to finish. And you will know that he is working because he will be moving what you need in place for you to finish: wait for it. And if you have exhausted all and have what you need, but not able to step into the finish that you see, then you must ask the Holy Ghost to help your unbelief in order to have the power to finish: again, wait for it, and he will probably send someone to walk you on into the finish. You can not leave a fully ready, exhausted, and shining word to go into circles; for it will live on as you live added days, weeks, and years away from the finish. The Father is always ready to finish, but we must get there by process to step into it.
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good.
