The Father is the greater in that he is the only one that knows the time and season of every Word, and he is the only one who can change the Word from how it was first sent forth. So if you want to be all that you can be, you need to be making your way up the Godhead chain to have a little talk with the Father, of course, this is after you first have a little talk with Jesus. Jesus tells us himself, as for as any one coming unto the Father, the road for that level of Godhead access runs right through Jesus: 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.” The way it goes concerning both the Word of God, and the word of the world’s system can be summed up in this one phrase, knowledge is power. Those who live by the Word of God have the power of God in their lives, and they along with those who are educated like the Apostle Paul, live with the power of both in their lives: yes knowledge is power. So only the Father knows the day and hour of one of the most promised day to come in the lives of all Christians, as well as all of the world: Mark 13:31-32, “Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.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.” And while we have this scripture here, it also says here in Mark 13: 31, “but my words shall not pass away.” It is true that his words shall not pass away, but if the Father wanted to change them or upgrade them, they would just be changed and upgraded, and still not passed away. This is the other thing about the Word, the Word does not have the power to change the Word, or upgrade the Word, or Add to the Word because the words are not his to change: John 12:49-50, “ For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.50 And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.” So only the Father can change the Word, as the Word is his to change. The Word, made Jesus, has life unto himself, but his life is from his Father: the Word was made to sound off what the Will was that the Father was sending forth at the time the horn was blown. The reason why the Father is the greater you is because he can update, improve, and extend what the Word says about you into a Word that is greater about you on the spot: for the Father is the greater you, I AM THAT I AM.
Jesus is the manifestation of God, given the fulness of God, from the Word being made flesh: Jesus will only be what was fully said to him to bring forth, and not all what still waits to be said to come forth. The Father is the greater because he must send it forth, in order for it to be the Word given to us, and to this we are not to add or take away from it: Deuteronomy 4:2, “Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.” Jesus was manifested to be the proof of the Father’s truth: whatever the Father dreamed up, willed up, or just had it to come forth for us to hear, written or vocal, Jesus was the one to be it. And if Jesus purpose was anything else other than the Father’s truth, you know Jesus would have had a thing or two of his own to say after all that he did to save our souls. Jesus let the people know right after their excuse that it was Moses that permitted them to divorce their wives, Apostle Paul also gave a few of his own thoughts on some things, but he let us know that they were not from God as he said them. And only Jesus lives with us as the Word in the truth as it is given from the Will of the Father because that is what he does: he is that Word in our life that lives right there along with us through all the truth without his love for us changing. This is why we have to trust Jesus to get us to the Father for the greater changes, upgrades, and extensions when we need the Will of the Father refreshed. The Word is the Will of the Father, from the Will of the Father; and the Father has plenty of Will left yet to be Word, so let’s always ask the one that sits above as the greater, and let’s see what Word that he sends forth after our request. Have you not ever just asked him anyway to see what he may say, and then waited long enough for the answer to get through the red tape stuff? You can reference Daniel as he knows a little bit about getting through that red tape stuff that makes you wait on the answer. So let me leave you with this about the Father, the greater. When the never changing Word came forth for Hezekiah to ready himself to die soon, the Father, the greater, changed that word from soon to fifteen years; and when it was time for the outgoing Prophet to hand over the mantel to the next Prophet, an upgrade to a double portion was given by the Father; and there may be a Word in the Bible about an appointed time given for a man to die, but the Father went for a walk with Enoch, and I guess that they were very long winded. Anyway, you see my point, all kind of things can come up out side the Word, at least give yourself a good shot at getting an adjustment, upgrade, and/or an extension by going up the Godhead chain to the Father, the greater, and let’s see what maybe sent forth.
The Father Still Loves To Do The Body Good.
