I ended yesterday’s post with the relationship in which Jesus has with the Father. Everything that Jesus did had all to do with the Will of the Father: John 6:38, “For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.” So can you come to a fork in the road, and not do your own will, but the will of him that sent you? Once you have developed your relationship with Father, you will be able to do that in which Father has sent you to do. You can do a self-check by asking yourself a question: should I go now if I know that I can go raise Lazarus today, and not on the fourth day, because shoot, the Bible tells me that tomorrow isn’t promised to no man? Well, that’s true about what the word does say, especially when taken somewhat out of context: Proverbs 27:1, “Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.” And then to be more specific, the word says don’t put it off at all until tomorrow, what you can do today: James 4:13-14, “Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain:14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.” I guess Jesus didn’t hear this part of the word in which he was responsible for speaking to the men who wrote it, even before he was the Word made flesh. Don’t lol, for it’s not funny. Jesus knew exactly what he was doing, and do you want to know why Jesus knew exactly what he was doing? Jesus has a relationship with the Father, and when you have an intimate relationship with the Father, you get to have a private line directly to the Father. This is why you want to have a relationship with the Father, “in case you need to have the word re-considered for your unique relationship.” I got you again on today’s post as I did in yesterday’s post: today I got you with “in case you need to have the word re-considered for your unique situation” as many would think. In yesterday’s post, I said “near and dear to your five senses,” when I know that many were thinking “near and dear to your heart.” The Father doesn’t re-consider the word based on your situation, but he will re-consider the word base on your relationship with him, and obedience to him. No one ever had a more demanding situation than Moses did: forty years of fame, forty years of shame, and then forty years of blame from the very people he freed from the “Hotel Pharaoh owns you.” I myself find it hard at times to deal with a couple of non-stop talkers, let alone many non- stop blamers ranging anywhere from hundred of thousands up to a couple of million. This situation did not help Moses’ cause; no, but his response of disobedience to the Father’s direction caused him to not enter into the promise land.
If you ever come to a fork in the road, and you do need the word for you reviewed, you have to know the Father because the word can’t review itself. Who could change the word when needed before Jesus was sent forth? The one who sent Jesus forth, his Father, he is the one who would change the word if he wanted it change. When the word for Hezekiah came forth that he would die, God changed his own word delivered unto Hezekiah, and added fifteen more years to the life of Hezekiah. This did change the initial word from God after He took careful consideration not of Hezekiah situation, but of the relationship that Hezekiah had with him. You would think that Hezekiah was a lawyer the way he laid out his case in defense of why he should not die now: go on over in the book of Isaiah, chapter 38: 1-5, and read how Hezekiah worked with that relationship. One day you will come to that fork in the road, where the word for you will have you all written up, and no one, but one can change the word on you; and that will be the Father. The same intimacy with the Father that Jesus has is available to those who know Jesus, and ask Him to reveal Father to them. I have mentioned many times lately in quite a few post that Jesus is the only way to the Father. And my foundation scripture to that point remains the same: 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, I know those who read the post have seen this scripture showing up over and over. If we are to have relationship with the Father, we must have it with the Son first. For many years some have had a relationship with Jesus, and not realizing that they were at the start of the relationship with the Father. Why is it so important that we have a strong relationship with Jesus before we can have one with the Father? My simple answer is because this is the way that the Father set it up to be: if we, the members of the Body of Christ, were going to have the same access to the fulness of the Godhead as it pleased the Father to give to the Son, there must be some format in which we can follow decently and in proper order if we are to benefit from this fulness. If there is no set way to access, and follow the movements of God, there will be no way to exercise our faith in the fulness of God when we need it in God.
So we start with Jesus, the Word, because this is where the process all starts if you are going to walk it out, walk out the word. Matthew 11:27, “All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.” Jesus is the gate keeper not only to the Spiritual kingdom, but he is also the gate keeper to the practical, and abundant living in the natural world in which we must all have in order to live here on earth. All things are delivered unto Jesus of the Father; therefore, the Father will always know how far along you are in the process of any faith operation. And not until one has a relationship with Jesus, will Jesus even consider whomsoever is ready to deal with the Father. The relationship with the Father is the greater of the three Godhead member relationships, for not only does the Father start the buck by delivering all things on you unto Jesus, but the Father can always chime in to end the buck concerning all things on you. I want to have a relationship with the Father because_______________________, now finish your own because. Let me make it clear why the Father is a must have relationship if you are a son or daughter who sees no limitations when it comes to God. There are many members who talk no limitations, but there are only a few who are willing to live no limitations. If you are to live no limitations, then you must build your relationship beyond Jesus, and beyond the Holy Ghost. Remember, Jesus would not let the Apostles leave Jerusalem until they were filled with the next relationship. It is now our time to walk and trust the last relationship, because we need him. Isn’t it obvious that the members of the Body, not the Body form, are missing something? Well, we have had the two in their fulness for quite some time, now let’s complete the fulness in order to live it fully. Here is a natural example in how you can think of the Father’s importance to the Body of Christ now: think of Jesus and of the Holy Ghost as level one, and level two, as they are able to handle what we have ask from God so far in our lives. And let’s say that one needs more from God than the Word and the power are authorized to do, and if one has fully exhausted the relationship during the process with the word, and with the power, they will shed one or hand one over to ask the Father. The Father seeketh such who are willing to ask of him, when there is no where else to ask, for the Father sits above levels one and two.
Now remember this, the all things that are delivered to Jesus for the Body of Christ in the fulness of God are the all thing in which the fulness currently contains. Whenever the Father sends forth his Will, we have more added to the fulness of God given to Jesus in bodily form in which the fulness contains. What happens if one ask the Word something that has not been sent forth or delivered by the Father to the Church in bodily form from the fulness of God? That means that the answer has not been delivered yet to exist in the fulness given to Jesus in bodily form; and this will process the Word, and the Power to shed the thing asked for over to the Father to bring forth that which was not already in the fulness. The Father is the only one who has an unspoken will that has not been given yet; and therefore, the one that ask for such a thing, or ask for a double portion if you will, or ask for more life after the word of God said to die, or ask whatever it maybe; that one will have no choice but to have a little relationship talk with the Father. The fulness of God given to Jesus, the head of the Church, was given to him, and to the future members, as they are the body, to dwell in bodily form. The Father is so vast, that he has in no way delivered that which it’s time has not come yet; and if the Father has not sent it forth yet, it is not delivered yet as part of the fulness given to the body. One reason that the fulness of God given to Jesus the head, and given to us the body, does not include all that’s in the Father’s own power is because the Father has not sent many things forth yet. If something has not been sent forth yet, then it is not yet in the fulness of God. For example, we know that the time of Jesus’ return is not in the fulness of God given to Jesus, and the members of the Body in bodily form: 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 the fulness of the Godhead where it pleased the Father to give to Jesus in bodily form, did not include this knowledge. One reason that the Father has not sent this Word forth yet is because he is giving the lost all the time needed to come to Jesus, for he wants no soul to be lost if at all possible: 2 Peter 3:8-10, “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
So let’s build the relationship with the Father, where he might deliver our unspoken fulness to us through relationship with Him. We are leaving a lot on the table when we don’t have relationship with the Father because he can stop the buck when no other can. The Father only has to reveal his Will to that in which you ask, that was previously unspoken, and it will become a part of your fulness.
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good.
