Let’s look at one of the top scripture verses in which new converts hear that will affect them the most at the Word level, and eventually lead them to the changes that will effect their lives the most at the Will level: 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.” The one thing that you can get most Christians to agree on is the need to empty oneself of what one thinks are the ways of God, delete delete delete; and then get ready to renew your mind to his truth. If new converts can get pass that hurdle, then they are off and running in a God way. There are still many many veteran converts who forget from time to time the one in charge of the operation, and they have to be processed for a minute to have it brought back to their remembrance. We were talking in yesterdays post about being a friend to Father, but if you are not able to hear him, trust him, and obey him; and not necessarily in that order, then there will be no friendship relationship. He will still be your Father, and he will still love you, but you will, how can I say it, let’s just say that you will miss out on the experience of having the most loving Father beyond imagination. Many many of the goodies that comes at the Father level, can only come by spirit and in truth. There is a whole lot of truth of his that we just can’t get on this side of the getting, but in after all of our getting, then we will get the understand. When you deal with the Father remember this, there are no layman’s terms, there are only trust terms. If he could get us to understand the depths of what he means, it would have happened centuries ago. So to all new converts, here is a renewing of your mind exercise: when the Father says jump, don’t explain back to him in prayer what you think he means, just jump. And really, don’t be concern of how far you need to jump because you can’t jump far enough anyway: just jump and he will stretch the one landing in the Father fits all to fit where you need to land. There has been one to make the jump the first time out, and he is the one affecting you by giving you the Word to jump. Did it work? Did Jesus affect you this time around enough for you to just jump? Oh well, as I said, there is still only the one to pull it off on the first time out, but hang in there you will get many more opportunity exercises to work on renewing your mind. And since most new converts, as well as close to getting it veteran converts, still operate mostly at the Word level, your out of spiritual pocket payment on these exercises will remain at or below thirtyfold. Jesus will make sure that you can handle the affects of renewing the mind on the Word level before he brings in the Holy Ghost in all his fulness and up to sixtyfold self: in other words, when you are ready to get MORE for the same Word, Jesus will leave you to the More.
I thought back many years ago when I use to deliver news papers, and I was five to seven years into my relationship with the Holy Ghost by that time. Of course, Jesus was there strong in my life, no Jesus no Holy Ghost, because they shed forth one to the other in the fulness of the Godhead after Jesus established the church. You remember Jesus telling the apostles that if he didn’t leave, the Holy Ghost wouldn’t come. Wait, I got time, let me find that scripture: 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.” Father may allow me to expound more later, but for now, let’s just say there can’t be two Gods present if they are one God unified; yeah, that’ll work for now. Jesus complicates it being the Word as a Godhead member; and being the Son of God made flesh to dwell amongst us to die for us on the cross: Jesus is so much. Anyway, back to when I use to deliver news paper, and I was always making extra money. I even had a full time job as a registered financial services representatives for a still major investment company, and I ran a ministry to develop oversight and five-fold ministry leaders. Anyway, I had a point to make concerning the renewing of the mind. The newspaper had this one route in the worst part of the city, and it was not only the shortest route, but they paid you double if you would run it. And if any of you knew me, I would say, now you know me: I’m a child of God, and I can go make two times the money on a route that takes half the time with fear pushing you also to get out of there, give me the route. The managers could not believe it, as I just pranced on in there every night, and went and took care of business every night. And the managers eventually relaxed because they had to go run the routes when the regular paper person they sent out didn’t finish the route. I must be honest about this one time out of all the nights in which I made that easy money. I was held up once, but the robbers only ask for news papers, and nothing else. Now, if you knew me, I took that as a confirmation from Father that everything would remain alright; plus, who robs you for five news papers in an area known for robbing you of everything, except now wanting to include newspapers, maybe? This also made me think about eternal life in God, we can have what we want eternally, starting now; or back then for me. Who said eternal had to start with Heaven? Eternal just means to continue from a place forth, and I choose to continue from back then, forth. I can say this having done so much by choice, the Father is the best friend to have because he can just show up and rewrite the script for his friend on the spot: no, you rob papers tonight, and not money and cars tonight. Lol. I had much more to say to you today, but you never know what may be next, and it works out good if you have a renewed mine so that you can just flow, and not question Father to death. Now I am thinking about the Children of Israel, Joshua and Caleb, I understand: why take a forty year anything, when you can just go out for less than a two week walk and be home? I want you to think about what’s in front of you right now, cut it short and enjoy life. The Word will get you there at your own pace, but if you want to get much more for the same Word, prove that you are a friend of God, even the Father.
