Next level sons and daughters already know the process to walk in the Word, and to move in the Holy Ghost, but do they know that it’s okay if they can stand for the Father To Reign. Most members of the Body of Christ are not able to stand for the Father to reign because you can’t teach gifting, anointing, and the Father-level love: Luke 14:26, “If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.” You see, the Father is going to need some of us to “so love the him” now, in a way which most people can’t stand, in order for the Father to reign. Every member of the Body of Christ is not called to be in the Father at his next level, but we are required to be at the next level in which we believe. The Father is willing to let you operate at the level in the Body in which you believe, or else he would be contradicting his own Word: Romans 14:21-23, “It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak. 22) Hast thou faith? have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth. 23) And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin. So, just because a member of the body is grieved with something you do, it does not mean that God is also grieved with it; but what the Father would like to see you do is turn from that which grieves that person at that time, and leave it with the one grieved, and allow you both to leave that moment in time as happy people. Now later on, when you are not around that person, do as it is stated above in verse 22: If you have faith in a thing non-grievous to God, then have it to thyself before God when you are away from the person it did make grievous. God has made it quite clear his position concerning these things: Romans 14:16-18, In first in verse 16, “Let not then your good be evil spoken of:” just don’t put on pants if you come to the Bible study where the person attends, and is grieved by your pants. And what qualifies you to be protective of you having good not to be evil spoken of? Here is the answer in verse 17, “For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.” So if you living in righteousness, and no restraining orders, gag and curfew hours for speech, and disturbing noise just using as examples, and the Holy Ghost isn’t convicting you left and right with unbias others in agreement for confirmations; all that other stuff that make people itch, and they require you to scratch, God isn’t holding you responsible to join them on promoting their spiritual skin disorders. And as you can see in verse 18, “For he that in these things serveth Christ is acceptable to God, and approved of men” So God is accepting your service as long as you are serving Christ in righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
Yeah, the Father wanted me to address that side of it briefly, but your true concern is not about what the members of the Body may think, but it is about what the Father is seeing from you as you do service to his Will. Do you remember this scripture that I stated above: Luke 14:26, “If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.” It didn’t go anywhere. The Father will be needing quite a few sons and daughters who can live by this creed. I mean some of the stuff seem crazy, but “can you stand for the Father to reign? Once I thought that I was getting ready to give my mother away at her wedding, but I found out quickly if I “can stand for the Father to reign. The telling part was that hardly anyone attending the wedding from our side of the family believed that it should go forth. I didn’t even talk to anyone, but you still could hear the chatter. It wasn’t important to me what they all were saying, but I only needed to know what it was that the Father wanted. And here is the problem with scripture, is the scripture really saying not to attend my mother’s wedding simply because I don’t have faith in what the two of them have the faith to do? Will I really be in sin if I attend a wedding in which I don’t believe should happen? So once I confirmed for myself only, that my leading was of God, I did not go. Well, the man died less than a year later, and my mother was left in a foreign land, but still in the states for over twenty-five years. Well, she recently, finally left that land, and is now back around family, and she tells me that I have been the only one there for her over all these years, go figure right. You know, I really do love my mother, but when it comes to the Father in heaven, and his Son Jesus, there is no contest at all. Now, it’s not necessary to say amen to that; we don’t want the Father to think that you were having a summit of agreement with me, and he go get excited, and have you go sacrifice something. I don’t have any concerns of him knowing my feelings verbally: there is no one left on my side of the family in which it hasn’t already been tried and proven.
You do know that most of this “Can You Stand For The Father To Reign” stuff, is to get you into treasures and special places with only your name on it. Of course, the Father has to try you against one that may try you against him at a time that we must be sure of, and not be trying of. Think of it also as a way he finds out your grade level of operation. The soldiers that become Seals made the decision to become Seals only after they could check off all the requirements stated by the Department of the Navy, as this is a highly selected and honored membership. And the hard working, very skilled, and trained members of all the other departments are not expected to go through the training of the Seals, but we could not defend this country successfully without what each one of them brings to their departments. The members of the Body of Christ is the same in that we all have a calling from God to fulfill, and the Church can not fight this spiritual war successfully without each one of us fulfilling our calling. I just love going into situations in which the Father needs me to stand in order for him to reign. And I will know that it is on, at the moment it starts because it is usually proceeded by a touchy situation, and it can happen anywhere from church to work. Real quick here, I was working at a major financial services company in Cincinnati, Ohio years back, and I remember having to stand for the Father to reign. To make this story short, the broker fired this one registered representative for reasons beyond her control. The client had called in to redeem and transfer some stock out of an account, old school, but called back too late with different directions. That was not her fault, and I heard God tell me to resign now because of the firing of that lady. Of course, you know if I am able to not go to my own mother’s wedding for God, this is a piece a cake in that it is just money. And God can replace just money any time he chooses. The bottom line was, that lady kept her job, and I was re-hired back with a promotion two weeks later. Anyway, I just want to encourage you to take that stand when you can, if the Father presents it to you, and let the Father reign. I just Love it when the Father’s unplan stand, can stand for him to reign.
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good.
