So what is it that you come to do? It’s more than a fair question. The answer should be the driver of many of your decisions if you intend on keeping a clear focus according to your purpose in God. Jesus summed up what he come to do so nicely, and straight to the point whenever it was needed it to be known. And whatever words that Jesus may have used that were different than the time before when he explained it, they always had the same meaning because he always had the same reason as to why he had come in the first place. Here are a couple of examples of Jesus explaining what he come to do: the first is 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.” There is but one way that we might have life, and that we might have it more abundantly, and that is for Jesus to go to the cross. And the second one is John 6:38, “For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.” And again, there is but one primary will of the Father that sent his Son down from heaven, and that is for Jesus to go to the cross. There are no blurred lines anywhere in Jesus explanations as to why he come, and as to why the Father will move him on: Jesus and the Father both know that at all cost, Jesus is going to that cross. Whew, just saying it like that opens up a vein to feel the purpose, and intent behind both the Father and the Son concerning why Jesus come. I would ask you wouldn’t you like to experience it like that, like whatever my reason for coming, I’m going to come for the purpose of my cross at all cost. I’m not going to do that to you because I have seen people, even in my family, of those in which I know without a doubt love the lord with all their heart, but buckled under certain pressures to where that cross got pretty heavy. We can’t take it all away from one because some extra weight, and not extra sin may have caused a slight buckle, now can we? I have it under great advisement that the top guns in the rank, had once buckled under extra pressure, and not under extra sin to the point of making some roosters sound off a few crowing times. By the way, I guess the extra weight pressure, and not the extra sin pressure is one reason why we have this directive left to us from the top rank who know that man doesn’t live by pumping every piece of iron alone: Romans 15:1, “We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.” So Jesus, the strong one, bear the infirmity, dagger in the heart, by the weak inner circle Peter not having his back, and kept him as the rock, as he ought.
So are you ready to take why you come to the next level, and have the Father move you on if that is indeed your intent. Now the Father doesn’t play, you can hang around the Body of Christ Mall playing toy cop head of security to have life be alright, or you can Seal it up, and let’s go after some of already been done later than should have been operations to have life more abundantly. It is up to you: you must only keep the faith to keep the life, but if you want to keep life more abundantly, you must keep the faith fighting as it is intended. When I explain why I am come now, you and I unlike Jesus, we did not hit the ground running from jump to clearly know by the age of twelve how to be about the Father’s business. It took us quite a few Ins and Outs to be pretty sure of why we had come, and you know what can still happen when you are only pretty sure, as your intent is never certain. I am in the first Ins in where I am certain about why I am come now. I will tell you right off the mat that I come to highlight the Father, and his role in the Godhead. My two foundation scriptures that I love and model are one John 14:28, “Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.” Jesus is of course the reason why our sin debt is paid in full, but Jesus still always points us to the Father in some way, form, and shape. In this verse, the Father is greater than I, and also Jesus is leaving since he has done what he had come to do in order for the Father to move us on as intended by the full Godhead: Genesis 1:26, “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.” So as it was always the intent of the full Godhead, man will work with the Father as Jesus did work with the Father when he was here in bodily form: John 5:17, “But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.”
One reason why Jesus left Word gifts to man: Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, and Teachers; was because there was not enough room or time to write it all down ever. So these gifted people would fill in the many blanks along the way. And my second foundation scripture is 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.” Again in this powerful explanation by Jesus of being the way, the truth, and the life, at the end he again will always point to the Father: this is for those with the intent of moving on, as the Father will move you on. Again, I myself come to highlight the Father because the Father is the greater place in the Godhead in which your intent must be. I will lay down this set up scripture for another post, but Jesus also said this about the middle of the Godhead: John 16:7, “Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.” Here we can see how Jesus, member of the Godhead as the Word, had just come to chair the head; now he must leave as it is expedient for us that he leaves so that the Holy Ghost, member of the Godhead, will now come to chair the head; and guess what, the growing Body of Christ needs the rest of the Godhead to chair the final phase in order to finish what the Body of Christ came to do. Jesus could have included in John 14:6 where he says truthfully that he is the way, the truth, and the life, he could have included that after him, the Holy Ghost, level two of the way, the truth, and the life will work the Body on to maturity right on up into the final chair of the Godhead, the Father. Jesus didn’t have the time to explain the many ins and outs of the spiritual process, so he left us the five-fold ministry to fill in the many blanks for us. When we move on to another level, we will move into another comforter. The Holy Ghost is often thought of mostly when the comforter is mentioned, and rightfully so, but all of the members of the Godhead are comforters in one way or another: John 14:16, “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;” The fact that Jesus speaks in terms of another comforter in the same text gives credence to all the Godhead as being comforters in some matter of speaking for you cannot have another comforter without having a first comforter. Now go write out clearly why you have come, and see that “The Father Will Move You On, If Moving On Is Your Intent.”
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good.
