We have covered much concerning my beginning as a member of the Body of Christ in the series, “As A Result Of Relationship. It details the one thing that we all have in common when it comes to our having a relationship with the Father, and that is that we all have a beginning. We all started at some point after birth, and becoming of age to have a relationship first with the Son, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; then later on to have a relationship with God the Father. It is my expectation that as you were reading about my beginning, that you were also bringing back to memory the path of your beginning. It is the path of our beginning in which we were all lead to the place where we are today in the Body of Christ, and in relationship with God. If today is your first day joining us in the “As A Result Of Relationship” series, please take time to read over post I – VI as the Lord leads you in order to bring yourself up to par with us in the account of the results along the way. It is the results along the way that became the spring board forward for each of us into what more was next for us toward building a relationship with the Father. I want to put the scripture out before you again that I believe to be the foundation scripture to having any relationship with the Father, as you must first have a relationship with Jesus in order to even get to the Father. 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.” Yes, there is no way around how you can come to the Father. If you are going to show that you should be introduced to the Father, then you will have to show it to Jesus; and then he will let you come to the Father, or he will not. And remember from the earlier post, we are not just speaking of the truth of God, but we are also speaking of the proof of God. We all know the truth that once you come to Jesus, then one day you will get to be with the Father in Heaven. What I am dealing with in this series concerning your beginning in the Body of Christ toward having a relationship with the Father is about earth, an not about the Heaven. When I get to Heaven, I will have no needs to be concerned about because life there will include everything that I need and want. However, life on earth is a different animal, I need more than the truth to live life, and to live life more abundantly: I need the proof of the truth to live life, and to live life more abundantly. The Father dealt truth to the world from since creation, but it was not until the truth, the Word, was made flesh and dwell amongst man did man finally see the light. My series “As A Result Of Relationship,” comes to help you identify just where you are in your relationship with God since your beginning, in order for you to not only know the truth, but to also have the proof of the truth. Romans 12:2, “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. We need to show the world, and ourselves that on the flip side of God’s truth, is God’s proof. So let’s have the relationship with the Father that we need, and then go have more of the truth made flesh, or made natural, for us to use here on the earth! We are children of the King, aren’t we?
The first part of our beginning gets everyone of us off and running in the right direction. We must first come to Jesus in order to save our soul; therefore, we are in position from our start, to start building a relationship with Jesus. And Jesus does not just want us to be a part of his Body of Christ entourage, and yes he wants us to praise him for who he is; however, Jesus wants us to be able to not only talk that talk, but he wants us to be able to walk that talk out into the natural where we can use it. So as we are praising him for who he is, we need to fill in his missing shoes in bodily form, and do what he does as we move as he moves. Now that is how you build relationship with Jesus: take his Word that he received from his Father, and move as he moves being the Word. John 14:12, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.” Jesus expects us as a Body to do greater works than he did because there are more of us here to do it. And that is why Jesus had to leave us and go to the Father, so that we could receive the power from the Holy Ghost in order for us to do the greater things. Remember that Jesus was given the fulness of the Godhead in bodily form, so he could do what he needed to do to make the Will, the Word made flesh or natural. Jesus had to leave for the Holy Ghost to come in order for you and I to move in the Word to make it flesh or natural: 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.” This part is a no brainer here as there can not be two comforters present at the same time in their true form if there is already one God standing there in the fullness: Jesus had to go because in spiritual form, one member of the Godhead, will shed into the next member of the Godhead in the process to bring to pass that which you hope for. Acts 2:33, “Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.” So to build the relationship first with Jesus, yes please praise him, but for relationship building, move in the Word when he moves as the Word. Let’s do a real simple example: situation, you need a job; Word, I will supply your need; show belief, put out five applications; produce fruit of the Spirit, have patience and faith; Word starts to become flesh, you receive three responses from your five applications; Apply faith to the three response substances, now move on the three responses substances in which the Word has started to become flesh; and now the next move will more than likely be to set an interview by phone, zoom, or in person. Here is where the Word will shed the responsibility over to the power, the Holy Ghost. If all or just one of the three faith response substances line up with the Will of the Father for your life, the Godhead tag member shed will be made with the Holy Ghost to take over. The Word at work just flows on when the Holy Ghost comes to work, but if you don’t work the Word when it works, then you are not letting it go forth in order for the holy ghost to come, so the Holy Ghost will not come. Once you do this with your different situations that come up in your life, from a job to a medical need, and everything in between over and over, you will have built a relationship with the Word, Jesus. And then you will build a relationship with the Holy Ghost and then the Father as you will shed into all three of the Godhead members to complete the one God. Now you can better understand why Jesus told the Apostles to not leave Jerusalem until they were endued with power. The Word has a built in profit margin of thirty fold, so members that need longer to build their relationship to where they can shed into the Godhead’s next member, can still receive that in which they hoped for up around thirty-fold as they grow in their trust and faith in the Word. So you now build a strong relationship with the Word, or with Jesus as you move along from your beginning or start as a member of the Body of Christ.
And once I had moved from my beginning, as I talked about in the previous post series, “As A Result Of Relationship, and I had built a strong relationship with Jesus, the time came for me to receive more of what was next as I moved closer to a relationship with the Father. I am still feeling it like the Karate Kid did in movie, so much sanding the floor, over and over; and waxing on, wax off, over and over to where I was ready for some more action as was the Karate Kid. We have seen from the example left in the Bible by Jesus and the Apostle, that after you build a relationship with Jesus, the Holy Ghost is next in line: Apostles, although you have clearly received the Word from Jesus, do not leave Jerusalem until you are endued with power. In the previous post, I told you how the man in my dream ended up coming to my Church where he preached one night during a revival. Well, I did talk to the man because you have to move as Jesus moves, as the Holy Ghost moves, and as the Father moves, or you will miss your move and remain still until your season circle back to you. In this case, when the man showed up at the Church to preach, I didn’t know it at that time because I had received no training in the gifts of the Holy Ghost to know what to recognize, but looking back at it now with training, I know that by talking to the man, I had stepped into a move of the Holy Ghost. So I was already underway in my training of what was next for me to come. I probably said at the time that Jesus was making a way for me, and that would have been true too; but more specifically, Jesus had shed the Word for my growth in the Father over to the Holy Ghost for the next level training. If the man had not been revealed to me, and he had just came to preach showing an ability to move in the gifts of the Holy Ghost, or talked about the Father; my moving to ask him about the Father later, would have been me working the Word to find the faith substance in which I am looking for to come to pass. However, since the man had been revealed to me in a dream, I can identify the Holy Ghost at work because of the revelation gifts being at work which are not a part of the Word gifting. I had no training in the gifts of the Holy Ghost at the time, but I had received the Baptism in the Holy Ghost at that time upon my visit to the Church of the Pastor who had stopped in the park to talk when I was running. So I had stepped in the revelation of the man in my dream fully, as I began attending his Church the very next week. When I attended the first service at his Church, I received the announcements to hear that the gifts of the Holy Ghost study would be starting as scheduled this coming week. I then knew that I had made the right move, and that the Holy Ghost had been right on time when he gave me the revelation. The Pastor, the one revealed to me in my dream, he spent the next two plus years teaching on the gifts of the Holy Ghost. Boy, oh boy was I a happy member of the Body of Christ: for now, no more just sanding the floor, and waxing on, waxing off. I was about to learn how to not just live in hope, but I was going to have the power to live in faith, now. This allowed me to answer Jesus’ question in my season, that he had asked his Apostles in their season: Matthew 17:17, “Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me.” My answer to Jesus. Thank you Jesus, Not Any Longer, now bring the Father’s Will for me to me!!!
