This is why we have to establish relationship with the members of the Godhead, especially unto Father. In truth, we do understand that Jesus has won the game on our behalf: victory is ours here on earth as well as there in heaven. However, in practicality, we must understand that we must still show up to play the game to walk in the claim. Heaven has marked victory by each of our names, but World-Vegas has made us heavy underdogs across the board. So you got to ask yourself the question, are you going to believe the truth makers or are you going to believe the oddsmakers across the board? Now you sports Christians, as I am one of you, you have heard this particular saying, “that’s why they play the game.” That is why we play the game is referring to instances like when Hollywood Joe Namath led the New York Jets to a victory in Super Bowl III over the heavily favorite Baltimore Colts. The Jets on paper had no chance to win that game if you were one to listen to the sport trees of the knowledge of good and evil. And God forbid you to be the quarterback to hear, if you held it near and dear to how you believe. It just turned out that Hollywood Joe just may have had some Joshua and Caleb running through his sports tree of life: for Joe did not see the Colts as being giants in the land on that day. Anyway, you all know the “That,” Joe led the Jets to victory over the heavily favored Colts. It was something on the inside of this young quarterback, yeah, “THAT:” which made him convincedly stand up and out as he predicted a victory for the Jets. And because of your “THAT” on the inside of you, you come ready to play the game knowing you will win. And after we win the game, we can give the glory to Father; and “that’s why we, the sons and the daughters, play the game.” Now let’s go get Father some more glory!
Now the entrance into the Holy of Holies begins with Jesus, whether it be in truth or in practicality, there is but one way 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.” So if one plans on coming to the Father in truth or in practicality, one best be planning to come to Jesus in order to get the relationship party started. The truth part is straight forward: basically believe that Jesus is the Son of God, raised from the dead, repent for the forgiveness of your sins, and ask Jesus to come into your life as your Savior. If you will do these things by faith, and believe what you did, then you will have the truth of the matter covered. Now come and get it all: come and get all of the promises of God to you as a co-heir with Jesus. Oh, now we begin the practicality of the relationship, and this is how you get to know the Godhead personally, all the way up to the Father. When we look at the truth of God, it is where we get our power to remain true to the end of the faith operation in which we are bringing to pass; that’s why we play the game, or stick it out in the faith operation for that which we hope for. Unlike with any other means of so call truth, knowledge from the tree of good and evil, or any other truth other than from God; we can not let faith come forth to those truth because they may not contain what is needed to come true. There are many ways that faith can come to a person, but only one way in which it will bring you toward the Father, and that is by the Word of God. Smart people who know a lot, can not claim that they know truth without facts. You hear it all the time from the District Attorney, it’s not what I believe, but it’s what I can prove: the truth of these smart people are always built on what evidence they have to prove their case. We as sons and daughters of Father don’t need evidence to build our case because our evidence is unseen. All we need is for Jesus to give us his Word, and with evidence unseen, we have a case, and that’s why we play the game. The District Attorney can not come to court with a word or statement that has no evidence to support and prove its case. On the other hand, you and I, sons and daughters of Father, we can come to court or to play the game with a Word only from Jesus, because the evidence unseen is how we use our faith to support and prove our case to get what we hoped for. The Father always has us to start the relationship with Jesus, because Jesus is the only tree of life that requires no evidence to prove his case: all Jesus needs for his word to come to pass is substance. Then Jesus will turn the substance that touches his Word into the proof that brings to pass that which we hope for. And that’s why we play the game because we know the Word of truth will become “THAT” which is needed to remain the truth. There is no other word from no other source where you can put your faith to work in it, and it comes out the truth through out many changes. We are directed for our faith to be put to work with the word of God because the word of God is complete truth: Romans 10:17, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” I can get faith from a loud crowd at a baseball game full of hope and hype after a two run homer ties the game in the bottom of the eighth inning: shoot, I am ready to cheer praise for as many more innings as necessary to win the game, but that faith is connected to a performance, and not to a truth that really holds the outcome. So this is why we always start on the Word of truth from Jesus because the truth of the Word has already been worked out to the reality in which I need base on what was first said. Let’s work this out further in tomorrows post. The Truth In Father Vs The Practicality Of The Truth In Father.
