When the Father is seeking those true worshipers that will worship him in Spirit and in truth, does he already know them by relationship, and just going through the process of free will to have it play out on record; or is he really out seeking such a people in order to know who they are: formality or reality? Now if I take my relationship people such as family, friends, fraternal, and ministry colleagues type just for example, there are some people within those relationships who I just already know would give me their full support in Spirit, in truth, and in supply; but up to what point if any? See in my case, I am not all knowing from the jump like the Father is, so although I may know that I have been good with my people so far, but is this next time the one thing finally, that may be more than anyone of them can bear in the relationship to support? I thank the Father that I have been blessed over the years to be less in need to have to seek out support, and the one more in position to help with support. If my relationship people are in need of my support in Spirit, in truth, and in supply, asking me is just the formality rendered as the courtesy of communication: they already know the answer to the question even if I have to cash in or redeem some things, but I’ll be there. I believe one reason that I have needed less help from man is because I have received most of my help from the Lord. I mean, I just wouldn’t go to man directly because I wanted to get it from God using man directly. You know, if we can’t get it from God at times, then it does become a formality to us in our asking. I will take help from people, but I always looked to take help from people as the Father was moving on them in the midst of the battle. I believe that the Father really does seek those on who he can just count on to doubt not in the middle of the battle.
The Father probably at times did believe that he had one who he could count on to worship him in Spirit and in truth at the next level in battle. The Father is always looking to see what have you done for him lately, lol. Ok, you knew it was coming, but it is yet true, the Father is progressive, he can’t live off of the mash potatoes that you served him up last year. No, he is going to want what you can do for him today. I had to make up my mind if I was going to be there for God, or were most things just going to be a formality. In America, get some education, be lucky enough to avoid dependencies on substances, and try to follow the golden rule, you pretty much can make God a formality. There are more people with more resources, and living fat off the American land with lost souls because you don’t really need God in America to get along and survive well; you just need to know where the next address is to get what you need until you get your next break. So it is really not just a formality with the Father, he is really having a difficult time trying to fill some of his vital operation vacancies. It’s hard to get that level of experience from his people when that level of experience is not required to live the good life in America: if you have education, skill, talent or just something tangible to offer in America, you will hear let’s make a deal, and sign you up with no God being required.
As I said, I needed to know that God would be there consistently as I wanted to need him, and not just when I had to need him. My experience with God, even the Father, was hard to come by because I came out of high school with scholarships for college. I graduated from college with little debt, except for a work study job that I transferred into a loan so that I would have some time to hang out with my brothers at the student center without losing study time. Then in my early twenties out of college, right into corporate American without really ever having employment problems. Oh, here it is: this is when I made a spiritual move in my life, and in learning about the gifts of the Holy Ghost, and many other things strange to me at the time, I manage to get some real real experience with God. I found my self in money trouble for the first time ever as I tried to get a handle on this new faith concept from my new spiritual move. I decided that I would not take any money from my peep relationships, but that I would face the music and show up, as the choir sang on Sunday, so that God could show out. I also found out early in my new spiritual life, that the people song good, but they didn’t show up good for the fight unless they were cornered or boxed in. You know, if you too sick to run, you will show up for the fight if only by default. So here I am about to be evicted, and this is the move that made the Father not a formality for me, and me not a formality for him ever again. The great singers were still singing, but it was the look on my leadership face with them knowing that the next day was eviction day for me. It was the look that changed my life in God forever: the look said it all, as it was not one that a person new to the teachings would need to see from those who suppose to answer when being asked what would my faith have me to do now? There was no confidence there at all about what I should do now. So I went home and told these exact words to God, and I remember them so clearly because they kept me from being just a formality to God, and God a formality to me over all these years. I said Father, I know these people love you, but they don’t know what they are doing when it comes to this faith stuff. I told him that I needed him to teach me, and then I left it at that. Oh, by the way, I did not run: I did show up to my front door from the inside the next morning to a heavy knock with four big dudes standing at my door to evict me. To make a long story short, and I will tell anyone who may want to know the long version later, but I showed up, and the Father showed out: eviction cancelled by the land lord as the heart of the landlord was changed on the spot. The deputies had just told me a few minutes earlier that evictions are not stopped, well, I guess those in the realm of formality are not stopped. Let me sneak this in real quick. less than a month later I was living in a new apartment with free rent and no utilities to pay. And none of this free stuff was through the government, as nothing is wrong with that if it was, but all was part of the compensation package offered to me with a new job.
I have not been the same since because I can not be the same since: I am not a formality. And by the way, I was in a meeting with one of those ministers from that leadership a few years later, along with another minster from a big church in Oklahoma. Somehow, yeah I know, the Father worked it into the conversation, I found out that both ministers had faced an eviction at one time since I had faced mine, and they both had left the home before the day came for the Father to have his chance to show up, and knock them out. This was one of them days in which the Father may have desired to seek some to worship him in Spirit and in truth, but for fear according to them of how it would look to others if they were evicted, they chose to make their known request a formality, and not have the Father to show up, to show out, and to fight the battle.
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good.
