When people don’t know you, and what you bring to the table, especially when they should know you, there are levels of communications broken that could only be made through what should have been known by another at that precise time. Many people miss the conversion into something that was special and uniquely theirs only because they did not know what they should have known about another when they were given the time to learn it. And again, this is communication that is even above that between best friends: I had this one best friend in college, and you know him because we all had one, to one level or another. He and I could give each other full understanding of what we were thinking just by what we had come to know about each other over time. We didn’t sit down and come up with signals to allow each to know what is being done, we could just do it, and do it with our only reference being all the time that we hung out together. I don’t make friends or associations with people so easily because my standard of friendship can not be matched by many, and I’d rather remain an acquaintance in happy with you than a friend that frustrates you. What does your close people bring to the table with you, and more importantly, what does God bring to your table with the time spent with you already. You see, the frustration that I would bring to a friend would not have come from my mistreatment of my friend, but it would’ve come from my friend not keeping up with the level of friendship I expect from myself to give to the friend. I would not be disappointed at my friend for having me late ten times, but It would eventually frustrate my friend not having a chance to earn back some of that late credit from when I would have my friend late at times: I would rather just leave unfinished whatever it was that took my time away at my expense than to have my friend late. I am okay if my friend is having me late from time to time, but I am not okay if I am going to have my friend late at any time: unless it’s LA traffic, in which it’s best to leave super early to not mess around with that beast; and oh, I will be on time for you. What is it that you have spent over time experiencing what is okay, and what is not okay with your people and your God? When you know how a person or God really is in those type of times, a certain knowing will be rendered to you just from the process of time spent together with each.
The Father Knows You, Do You And Others, Know You? So why is this knowing yourself and others who labor around you so important? This level of communication is like the making of fine wine through the fermentation process where the final selection is done by taste: this level of communication will avoid the audible means and only be produced through the time together process where this level is received by knowing. The best wine has a taste that you must get from the time the fruits spent in the fermentation process that renders the wine that you seek; and in parallel, this level of communication has a knowing that you must get from the time spent in the together process that renders the knowing that you seek. This past Sunday as you all know, was Mother’s day, and like most of you with Mothers on the opposite coast, the delivery processes of many different companies became our best friend for the day, two, or three days delivery before the main day itself. My Mother has kids on the West and East coast with an extension or two into the Carolinas, so she was a busy little bee this past Sunday with her gifts. My nephew was with her opening her gifts, and she got to one and ask him who was it from because of the packaging. And she told me of my nephew’s reply; “he said grandma, you know that package is from uncle James, he just has certain way that he does things unlike everyone else.” My point is that from the time spent together with him receiving packages from me, he just knew without audible or legible communication that the package in question was from his Uncle James.
This is where we have to get to with the Father in order to know what it is that he is saying to do without having to hear it, for we will just know it because of the process. Again, there is a level of communication, and we all go through it at this lower natural level: where the expression or look on the face, the timely sound made, or when no food was left in the kitchen for dinner, just clearly says it all. And this level of knowing as nothing to do with teaching in a way for better understanding. Jesus, the best teacher by far than any of us could imagine to be, brought the same concerns up to the Apostles: John 14:9, “Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?” Jesus is thinking that Philip should know a little more after spending so long time with him. One thing for sure, Jesus gave him all the clarity that could have been given to a disciple. This makes me think about the Apostle Peter, who was not the most orderly Apostle, but he was able to know that Jesus was the Son of God based on the revelation that he received from the Father himself: Matthew 16:17, “And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.” Peter did have a step up on Philip in the big ticket events with time spent together with Jesus: Peter, James, and John were able to see a thing or two in which the other Apostles were not because they were with Jesus at times when the other Apostle were not in the loop. I am sure that it added to the three in a favorable way when it comes to the process of time together with Jesus in rendering the higher level of knowing from the Father. So in order to have more knowing rendered to you, experience as much as you can according to that which lines up with the Will of God for your life with God as well as with those that are linked to your life, and you will get more knowing rendered to you that can only be rendered from the process: the time spent together with God and others in faith deeds through trust.
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good.
