It sounds like a negotiation is always going on amongst God, Man, and the rest of the world that Is. One might say that God, even up unto to the Father Godhead level, does not negotiate his ways, it is either his way or the highway one might say. Well, for the sake of peace-ment, lets just put a few things out there to allow us to move forward in the entertaining of this notion, that the Father’s Will is based on acceptability, and is therefore not already perfectly laid out at the sound of the bell. Here are a few things that I’m putting out there: it obviously was not already perfectly laid out that Hezekiah would die when the Word of God first came forth that he would die soon. Now we are talking about the you can’t change Word of God right? However, Hezekiah didn’t change the Word of God, God changed the Word of God: so make sure that you always remember that when ever you find yourself stuck in a rut that you can’t get out; you just need to go, and have a little talk with the Father to see if he agrees that you need relief from the impediment that’s in your way. It’s like I remember from the movie “Coming To America” when the King asked the Queen, who am I to make changes to the law? Then she replied, you are the King! The Father is the King of his Will, even Jesus himself does not know all that the Father knows concerning all of his Will: Mark 13:32, “But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.” So you can only change it all, if you know the greater of it all as does the Father: John 14:28, :for my Father is greater than I. In another instance, and there are many of them throughout the Bible, it was not already perfectly laid out that Elisha would get a double portion of Elijah’s anointing as Elijah had already reached the place where he would be taken away from Elisha, and there the double portion request was made. 2 Kings 2:10-11, ” And he said, Thou hast asked a hard thing: nevertheless, if thou see me when I am taken from thee, it shall be so unto thee; but if not, it shall not be so.11 And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.” Here again, we can see the negotiation going on: if you see this when it happens, then you can have the double portion, okay? Okay. This was not perfectly laid out to happen this way, but it became acceptable. And last, but not least, in another instance: and I wanted to show different type scenarios in which they all would still require having an option from the Father that was not already perfectly laid out. In this instance, King David had to receive punishment for his sin in numbering Israel, and simply put, God gave him options, do you want me to do it, or do you want man to do it, I’ll let whichever be so: 1 Chronicles 21:13, “ And David said unto Gad, I am in a great strait: let me fall now into the hand of the Lord; for very great are his mercies: but let me not fall into the hand of man.” See, The Father will work with you, if you be willing to work back with him, and he will negotiate not to put no more on you than you believe that you are able to bear: I just love it when a not perfectly laid out plan becomes acceptably perfect to the Father.
So let’s look at the foundation, and process of having a not perfectly laid out plan become acceptably perfect to the Father. In Romans 12:2 it reads, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” In the first place, we have to initially have an ongoing process to enter into the will of God since we are born into the will of the world. We can not be expected to just jump into what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God from our initial stages of being a new convert. We may not be of this world anymore from at the age in which we received Jesus, but we were of this world by birth before we were called unto him: there is no way around it. As you can see from scripture, not being of this world has nothing to do with physical location, but everything to do with how you operate your life after being chosen to give your life unto the Lord: John 15:19, “If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.” So we were of the world at first, but the Lord has chosen us out of the world. The Lord was never of this world, but was made flesh through the process into the world, that he might save our souls, and know how we suffer. Jesus shows us again when talking to the Father why we have to not be conformed to this world, but be transformed to his world by the renewing of our mind: John 17:18, “As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.” Jesus was sent into the world from his world after living in the glory of the Father before the world was; however, you and I was sent into the same world as Jesus was sent, but it was after living in the glory of the same world in which we are now sent. It stands beyond reason that the Father will give us all the good faith proving room that we need to make the change from living in the world ways, into now being in opposition of the world ways in which world we still live. And I must add this to it, being in opposition of the world ways when they do not help us prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. In the world ways, we must work to live, and in the not of this world ways we must also work to live: so you see how that is good, and acceptable, and as you find the work that the Father has for you to do along your working ways; and then the perfect will of God. So don’t get so frustrated along the way as you find your way, at least you are looking: the Father knows that there are habits, ways, and loving relationships that you must no longer conform to, and the new habits, ways, and loving relationships that you must now transform to, and all must be done not by leaving the earth, but by the renewing of the mind. So get on it for your sakes, and just do it the best as you believe according to the Word of God, for that is what being acceptable, and perfect will mean to the Father, as being laid out for now.
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good.
