There is one thing that every member of the Body of Christ all know, and that is that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is good. We may not know much, but if we are members of the Body, the Church, we have tasted of that which is his Word, and we know it to be good. If nothing else, we know that the person that existed before the taste, that person exist no more; and that is a good taste all by it self. Jesus says in Psalm 34:8, “O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.” So now that you have tasted that the Lord is good, that is, the words in which your ears first heard, you stepped into what you heard by faith, and you now can vouch for the taste as you have entered into the Word heard: Hebrews 6:5, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,” And now for the second part of Psalm 34:8, “O taste and see that the Lord is good: as I said earlier, to be members of the Body, we had to taste what our ears heard by stepping into what was heard by faith; so that we entered the taste of what we heard. Now, we not only want to enter to taste what we hear, we want to also see that the Lord is good: so now it’s time to go to work. How do we see that the Lord is good, after we taste the product to determine that the quality of it is indeed that in which we had heard. Well, once the buyer (you) taste that the product is good, with a smile and great desire, you want the big shipment to come on in, so that you can see just how good life can be living with what you just taste more abundantly. So the “taste” is all that Jesus did for us through his death on the cross where all we have to do is dress in what he did already to have life now and eternally; however, the “and see” is for us to put our hands to our Words of faith from the Father, and see life more abundantly because of what we can do with that same power we just tasted. So live life with you sin debt paid up unto eternal life, and keep the taste of all that Jesus has done with you forever; or, see what you can do with this same power in which Jesus left for you to taste, and turn the taste into seeing what you yourself in God can take and bring to pass as Jesus modeled.
There really are two directive life styles in which you can live your life out in God once you enter into the sin free debt that Christ has left for us to enter into. You can have life, wait, let me read the scripture as it reads: John 10:10, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” Even in this scripture, you can have life, and if you choose to go for it, you can have life more abundantly. The more abundant part of life that you might have requires that you go for more led by the Word than you would in just a regular life led more by the natural: you can be of God, and work the things that the world works to supply your needs such as a job; or at times you can go for life more abundantly, and just say, bye FePharaoh, that’s the end of the same thing game. Once Moses had been matched a few times according to God’s plan by the world in deeds, God said that’s it, I got to leave this place, I don’t care what these people say; now let there be lice, and then a swarm of flies. lol. There I go again!
And once you really look at all these scriptures, they tell you the same thing; you can go for more if you choose to. Let’s look at Psalm 34:8 again, “O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.” Even in this scripture, you can just taste that life is good from receiving the life from the Word that Jesus walked in to victory, or you can trust in him for it to happen to you, as you walk in your Word to see a greater victory if you have the mustard to trust in him to bring it to pass. And let’s look at another scripture in Hebrews 6:5, “And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come.” And again, even in this scripture you can see the two directives available for the member of the Body of Christ to taste or see. First, you can always taste the victory of Jesus through the good word to live your life; or you can see the victory for yourself through the good word in which you can bring to pass against the powers of the world to come: you can go for more against these powers as you trust in God to give you the victory. Another scripture: John 14:23, “Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.” If you love me, you will keep my taste through my word to live your life; and if you continue in my word because you trust in me, you will draw my Father who is greater, and you will have a greater life because you chose for the Father to abode with you. And there is just one more scripture out of many others in which I must mentioned in order to make this all happen: John 14:6, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” Oh yeah, the Lord Jesus is good, and we have tasted what he has done for us by receiving his Word, and receiving him as the Son of God, and by knowing that he was raised from the dead. Now to see this victory in our own lives more abundantly than a taste, we must O Taste And See Too, That The Father Is Greater: John 14:28, “for my Father is greater than I.” In order to first have life, you must first receive Jesus to have life free of your sin debt; then if you want more than the taste of living in what Jesus has done for you when he brought the Word to pass in all he done while on the earth, let him bring you to the Father where you can see how to bring the Word to pass while you are on the earth to have life more abundantly. Jesus is not just the way because he paid the sin debt on the cross, but he is the way because both life, and abundant life must come through him first in order to get to the Father either way: will he pass you on as he goes to prepare the way? Jesus does not just go ahead of us to prepare a place for us in heaven; no, Jesus is the Word in the Godhead made flesh, he still goes ahead of you on the earth in his Word to prepare the way for you in the earth to come to the Father for life more abundantly. Anyway you look at it, Jesus allows you to taste, and he allows you to see: to taste life, and to see life more abundantly.
The Father Still Does Love For You To Have Life More Abundantly,
Pingback: Prayer Theme for June 2021: Our Father – Belgian Ecclesia Brussel – Leuven
The Father of Jesus is not Jesus himself, but the Most High God Who gave him authority, the right to speak and handle. Without his heavenly Father, Jesus could do nothing.He was always respectful to his heavenly Father and prayed to Him and not to himself, like so many Christians think, having made Jesus into their god. We must be careful not to do such a blasphemous act by making Jesus and his God into a fraud. In the month of June when many celebrate their father, they also could think about the worldly father and the heavenly Father of Jesus. We all should be thankful that the heavenly Father, Who is the Only One true God, accepted His beloved son his ransom offering to save us all.
