So there is one who believes that the thing hoped for has already happened, in the same way as one who already knows that the thing hoped for has already happened: so what is the difference between believing that the thing hoped for has already happened, and already knowing that the thing hoped for has already happened? Two of the few pure forms of trust and truth outside of God himself, with God not being a man that he should lie, is math and science. So to find the trust or the truth, say I was to make a simple spiritual written math equation. It may lead me to answer the question of the difference between believing, and already knowing that the thing hoped for has already happened. Since they both have an identical variable on each side of the equation, “that the thing hoped for has already happened,” the same variable on each side cancels each other out to confirm that part of the trust or truth. Now we are left “with one who believes on one side, and with one who already knows on the other side” to determine the difference. Here we have the two completely different variables left to drive the equation that some how ends up with the exact same conclusion, “that the thing hoped for has already happened.” And when there is an ending conclusion that is exactly the same, while being driven by totally different variables, there has to be an exponent common to both variables that is capable of covering the range of both. For example, I could come charging at my son when he was smaller in an attempt to scare him , but he wouldn’t budge; I also handed him a mystery can on another time, and he just opened it up without caution; and most recently, the neighbor’s Big dogs got loose while he and I were too close for comfort, and he stayed more calm than I did. There have been many other things to happen by chance that involved some risky business, and I notice the same demeanor on him when he and I are involved. And he would have no proof to know how many of these things would come to a good ending at their beginning, but he always acted as though he knew that everything would be alright as we hoped for. So I had asked him once, one way, and then much later, I asked him in another way, why he always knew that things would end up good before they ended. It was his answer that helped me realize the answer to the spiritual math equation above. My son, ten years old at the time, and now thirteen years old, he said back then and he still says presently this to me: “I know that things will end well because I know that you will not do anything to hurt me.” So when do you get to believe the thing hoped for has already happened, in the same manner in which one who knows the thing hoped for has already happened? When you have the relationship that has turned your believed things hoped for over and over into your known things hoped for over and over again. The exponent that can cover both believing, and already knowing into the same out come is Relationship.” Once you know God to come through for you on a few levels over and over, then you will always know God to come through for you at any level over and over even before the evidence is at hand.
Father is indeed the trust to the truth of it all because of relationship. Once you have build a relationship with Father, the evidence may still yet be unseen, but you already know that it is just a matter of time only, as well as the matter of it being on time for you to do what you need to do. How does it believes to know that the Father always hears you period? What a relationship that would be, but are you willing and do you want to have that type of relationship with the Father as did Jesus. Jesus makes it known in scripture that he knows that the Father always hears him: John 11:42, “And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.” When you sit down and think about it, are you convinced that the Father always hearest you? We are talking about the highest level of hearing possible, right? You see the est on the end of that verb hear: we are not talking great hearing, or greater hearing; but we are talking the greatest hearing as in giving you His undivided attention. I always ask people if they think that the Father really hearest them after I just finish listening to them tell me how much Word that they are still waiting on to come to pass. Right then I give them a break because I know now that they are expecting movement from the wrong relationship. The Father is not the mover of the Word. If one is still waiting for certain Word to come to pass, then they need to have a little talk with Jesus, and touch up that relationship before looking to the Father to finish up. And that is a good way to describe the Father, for he comes to be there at the finish just in case you ask for something that the other relationships do not have in their power: change the word to fifteen more years to live and not die, have a double portion of anointing, change times and seasons on the spot, and just any unspoken thing not yet revealed as the Will. Yeah, having a relationship with the Father is truly a game changer in ones life. I will continue in my upcoming post to talk about the relationship that we must have with Father, as well as with the rest of the Godhead members by which we even get to come to the Father. The Father does not want any of his sons and daughters to hit their ceiling, and feel as though they can go no higher. There is no such word in the Father’s vocabulary such as hitting your ceiling: what ceiling? Have you looked up lately to see what you could see? I bet you didn’t see no ceiling. The kingdom of God is nothing like corporate America: in corporate American, in which I am a proud alumnus, your upward movement depends on your performance; in the kingdom of God, your upward movement depends on how you let go and let God perform. So if you are feeling the intense light on your eyes from being close to hitting the ceiling, just take out your relationship building rag, and lets build some room between you and that ceiling.
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good.
