Like Father, like sons and daughters, “Let The Father Shed Forth Your Hope.” You know that’s exactly how the Father did it, and if it was good enough for the Father, well, need I say more. The Father had his “Word” in which he had brought into his bosom to keep it close to him because it was so special to him. And for a few centuries the Father played this game with himself, and not send forth the Word from his bosom yet. The game that the Father played was similar to the one that those lost in love headlights play from time to time. And the game of those lost in love headlights goes something like this: she loves me, she loves me not, she loves me, she loves me not; and this continues until the only game piece, usually a Daisy flower, is plucked down to the last daisy leaf in order to receive the hopeful future. Now, in the case of the Father, he did not use a daisy flower; and with hindsight, we can see that what he did use did not work out as good as a daisy. No, the Father used different men with women, and most of them turned out to end up being as a deer lost in the Father’s Will headlights. And the game for the Father with these men with women, too many to pluck to mention them all, went something like this: Adam with Eve loves me, Adam with Eve loves me not, Noah Sons loves me, Noah Sons loves me not, Abraham’s many nations loves me, Abraham’s many nations loves me not, Moses’ law loves me, Moses’ law loves me not; and I do believe that you get the point with me here. So the Father eventually had to include his special Word from his bosom as the many plucked from Adam and Eve’s tree of life to the earth, would not satisfy the love for the world in which the Father had hope for. So in order for the Father to get what he hoped for, he had to let himself shed forth his own hope in which he already had with him before the world was; and also before the plucking of men in his Will headlights to love him, or to love him not had even began. You know sometimes, even for the Father, letting go is so hard to do, but you have to reach down and come up with the Word of truth that can bring you the manifestation of the thing hoped for: John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” And there it is, game over: the Father finally got the thing hoped for in which he shed forth.
Now, are we sons and daughters, ready for the hope in which we are willing to shed forth? Listen, I understand how it can be, shedding your love forth for the victory. We see how long it took the Father to shed forth his love, and he had the love with him in the beginning: so I believe that we will continue to get a little wiggle room from the Father because he knows. So like Father, like sons and daughters, let’s shed forth this thing hoped for. So you know how the Father had the “Word” just sitting in his bosom all that time while he was playing the plucking game to see if the men love me, or love me not; we are going to skip that part of the experiment since the Father has proven it not to be dependable. You and I are going to just pick the “Word” for the thing that we hoped for, and then go ahead and shed it forth: we not gone let our, okay, I’ll say it correctly, but it doesn’t sound as good. Here we go, we are not going to let our precious Word that we now hold in our bosom just sit there while we play love me, or love me not with the world. We already know that the world loves us not, so let’s go for who we know so loved us, and had his only begotten son to die on the cross for us. Thank you Jesus!! This is the time to not be that child to have to learn the hard way. Now is the time to take the lesson handed down from our Spiritual parent, and run with it. So shedding forth is not so hard, unless it’s your only begotten Son that you have to shed forth: so we are all clear of that problem. So as the caterpillar becomes, or should I say, sheds forth into the butterfly, so does the “Word” becomes, or should I say, sheds forth into that in which you hope for: John 1:14, “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”
So just how did the Father take the Spiritual Word from his bosom, and send it forth to be made flesh; and keep in mind, like Father, like sons and daughters. Well, the Father, all knowing, knew exactly where to get his shedding from the Word to the flesh started. There was this girl name Mary, and all the Father needed from her was to believe and to agree with what she heard from the angel, and may the shedding begin: Romans 10:17, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Now you and I on the other hand, Mr. and Ms. all not knowing, we will have to look around our worlds to see what the Father has put there for us to get the shedding of our Word to begin. Once Mary, the natural part, had received the Word, the spiritual part, the process was off and running. And you will do it in the same fashion as like Father; you will have your Word, the spiritual part, and you will have your Mary or faith substance, the natural part, then the process is off and running. And your natural part, just as Mary did, will just need to hold up as the process sheds the Word into flesh or natural. We do this process all the time, but we generally are doing it with natural on natural. So say you hope to buy a car, you prospect for the right car at the right dealer ship, you give them your word to buy; and you show that you can shed forth the word, natural, for the car, natural; by bringing forth cash, or have good enough credit to complete that in which you hoped for. It works the same way in the Spirit, but at times, you need to show your fruit of the Spirit production along with your trust in the one who runs the times and seasons of the shed operation. I want you to remember that it is the first contact between the spiritual, and the natural that is so important: the natural that you are dealing with need to be valid in that the spiritual process can be ran through it from heaven’s view point, as it is being ran from and by the Godhead. For example, Mary had to be validated to hold up to all that she had been made to be, and not just someone capable of having a baby. There are things that must work for God, and there are things that must work for the natural in order to have what you hope for come to pass. And even in the natural with the car dealership example, it can’t be just any car dealership, it must be one that meet your needs as well as you meeting its guidelines: if you have had a recent foreclosure, or bankruptcy, you will have a limited number of institutions that will be willing to shed your word into that car in which you hope for. You may end up doing more prospecting, or searching around for one who will work with you, than you will spend getting to test drive a car. Even with the Spiritual, where you have some knocks on your obedience credit report, one reason why the Father played that love me, or love me not game for so long, was to have already been there standing with those who at one time had loved him not enough. And those people can now know to just stand, and do all they can to stand, until the new reporting of love can register their new updated rating: they love me now says the Father. Now let the Word Shed begin!
