When Jesus says to the Father, “And I knew that thou hearest me always,” what does that mean? Does it mean that the Father can hear real good, and that he did hear the request being made by Jesus for the record just as the people standing by with decent hearing did hear it as well at the time Jesus spoke? Let’s read what Jesus said: John 11:42, “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.” Or, does it mean that the Father just couldn’t help but to know that Jesus made the request because of the Father’s Omniscient awareness of all that happens past, present, and future. You know, we could make a case that the Omniscient awareness of the Father maybe the way to go with this, especially when we look at many of our “to do request lists” in which we all have recited to the hearing of the Father. That list is longer than the number of days to the next big lotto winner in my family; oh, I haven’t had the first big lotto winner in my family; and oh, no one in my family plays the lotto that I’m aware of? Well, let’s just say that most of those list put up for the Father’s hearing are still very long, now. Then there is that one thing that Jesus did say that gives us some indication of what is going on with this, “And I knew that thou hearest me always” deal. Besides, don’t we all want to “knew,” that the Father hearest us always too? You know, it could just be that everything is still backed up at kingdom headquarters, as you know that worker angels are on short supply, Heaven is still handling its full load short of help, and making it work out as it replace all the work that would have been done by the other third of the angels that ran off with Satan back in the thousand years is as one day in that world.
It does appear to the gifted eye that Jesus either had much favor with God, was highly skilled in his trade of bringing to pass that in which he hoped for, was as we say in college football the number one five-star recruit in all the land, and/or all three named just to name a few. Although the Father is no respecter of person, we know by his own admission that with Jesus he was well pleased. Do you know if the Father is well pleased with you? Are you very skilled in your trade to bring to pass that you hoped for? Jesus came out of Junior high school as the number one recruit in all the land over all Pharisee, and Sadducee high school upper classman, as he was found already able to make every throw on field being about his Father’s business at the very young age of twelve. So here is what Jesus says to indicate how we might be sure of the Father to hearest us always too; and man, do you know what it would mean for the Church, for Us like JesUs, to “knew” that the Father hearest us always: WOW? And I looked around in the scriptures, and the Father would literally respond to Jesus, letting him know that he did hearest him: John 12:28, “Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.” You know, it is quit a few of those type responses throughout the Bible: I personally believe the Bible, especially when it comes from Jesus’ own words, that his Father hearest him always. However, when you say it to many people, it’s still best to lay out a few more pieces of confirmations if you will, but Jesus already had me at “hearest always with no other proof needed to be had.
We are going to have to use the squeaky Will get’s the oil concept here, just to keep it simple. And we can do that because Jesus sets us up for it, bless his greatness, by using it himself to explain the process between him and the Father. And remember, the process that Jesus is using, is the one that he already knows that you and I will use naturally to get to the spiritual. Jesus knows that we are just going to squeak, squeak, squeak until we can’t squeak no more: it’s just what we as humans do, we squeak. Look in the mirror, around the zoom office, and anywhere that you are out and about with social distancing; and you will easily hear the squeaky will, and then you will see the squeaky will get the oil. There are two main contenders in which we deal with as Christians, and they are whether to do our will or his Will, squeak, squeak, squeak. The key that Jesus wants to know first is this: who are you really squeaking to, when you squeak? We may say “Our Father, who art in heaven,” but have we squeaked enough to eliminate the other contenders in line for the Father to hearest our squeak. If I needed a thousands dollars today, right now, who will I squeak to, and who will you squeak to right now? Will I say “Our Father,” before I send the text hoping that the person on the other end will be moved by the Father to get up off of that money; or will I say “Our Father,” after I sent the text with hopes of the other person on the other end as my first responder be moved by whatever to get up off that money. We know the person can’t be moved by the Father at first, if I have not been moved to go to the Father at first. So how long will I have to squeak, before my heart turns to the Father to replace my first responder. There will be serpents, blood water, frogs, and lice in which another one may can respond to on your behalf as will the Lord, but the day will come, and is now at hand when the one in which you respond to first in your heart will need to be able to handle swarming flies, and above. We need to have a sincere habit of squeaking out to the Father at the lower levels, so that we will call on him first to respond in our heart to that in which only he can respond too. Jesus knew that the Father heard him always because the Father always received the greatest squeak above all others who Jesus may have squeaked to. The Father can not be in the group of others to hear you, but he must be the greater (est) to you in your heart, above the rest of the others, then he will hearest you.
And I knew That Thou Hearest Me Always, Father.
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good.
