The whole purpose of the Godhead is for our benefit so that we will have a way to get closer to Father, and to be in line with what his Will wants to accomplish. This act of love gives us full access to the fulness of God. We become a partner with each Godhead member over our time as a member of the Body of Christ, and this allows us to know him at each level to the degree of our own choosing. It is no doubt a great experience to know the fulness of God, even unto the Father, for Jesus himself, post resurrection, could not wait to get back to the way it was with the Father even before the world was: John 17:5, “And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.” So when Jesus came to dwell among us, he knew what the Father wanted him to do and he did it. These relationships that we build with the members of the Godhead will allow us to get closer to the Father to know what to do. Jesus was in constant contact with his Father, and he knew exactly what Father wanted him to do. Jesus was His son and they shared things with each other. Jesus prayers were always answered. You and I need to be in constant contact with Father so that we will know exactly what to do. Remember from earlier post, the Word is always the Will, but the Will may not always remain as the Word: sometimes you need a relationship with the one who sits above the Word in order to know what to do. One of my most favorite examples of this in the Bible is with Hezekiah. The Word from God in which the Prophet delivered to King Hezekiah was get ready to die: Isaiah 38:1, “In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz came unto him, and said unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Set thine house in order: for thou shalt die, and not live.” Yes, the Word is the Will of God, unless you got relationship with the one who sits above the Word: Isaiah 38:2-5, Then Hezekiah turned his face toward the wall, and prayed unto the Lord,3 And said, Remember now, O Lord, I beseech thee, how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight. And Hezekiah wept sore. 4 Then came the word of the Lord to Isaiah, saying, 5 Go, and say to Hezekiah, Thus saith the Lord, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will add unto thy days fifteen years.” The original Word from God that Hezekiah would see death soon was indeed the Will of God, but relationship called in its marker, and God changed His mind. God had a new Will and there fore he sent forth a new Word for Hezekiah, fifteen mo. The Word is always the Will, but the Will may not always remain as the Word.
This is why you have to know each member of the Godhead in a friendship relationship type manner. You need to always know what God has you down for when it comes to lately: you maybe the one in which he upgrades the anointing mantel up to the new an improved double portion just because you asked him. It is up to the Father if he wants to change his Will there on the spot, isn’t it? Again, there must be a relationship first, or you will have to ride with what you already know that he said. The key with the Father is his Will, but the Word is how you know what his Will is. And from what I’ve seen in life and in scripture, there is usually a witness of some fashion when a change of the Word is sent forth by God to update his Will: King Hezekiah had the Prophet on his extended life, Elisha had Elijah on the double portion, Paul had the trance showing the Lord himself sending him to the gentiles, and I myself once had my Pastor’s visiting Prophet friend tell him that it was time for me to leave him back at the time. The Will of God can not be taken lightly, and the Father does not just have his Word so easily changed, especially his written Word in which we change it not. However, any must changes and adjustments to any Word can only be done to those Words which went forth on you, as you alone are responsible for what came forth concerning you: 1 Timothy 1:18, “This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare.” The Spiritual walk is a personal walk, so make sure to make it that way. One thing that made me so successful in sales in corporate American is that I learned early never to try and close the deal with the screen, and /or the middle person. You use them to get you to the decision maker, and then you close the deal with the decision maker during your talk as the buying signals start to come. I need the Word to get me to Father, but I can’t use the Word to finish the deal. The Word may show me an area to exhaust to full faith first, but only Father can give me the time and season to finish it. In a sales call, the potential buyer’s situation may need to be expounded on further to see the true cost of not having a copier on site, but converting the situation to savings is what will get the signature on the dotted line. For example, what happens Ms. decision maker when you close your office to run down to the copy store? cha-ching! Have you yourself missed any important phone calls during those extra thirty minutes while you were away? cha-ching! Have you ever had to go out during rush hour, and had to get back for a big appointment? cha-ching. Taking a customer’s situation and finding a way to show the savings on the new equipment is easy, but it must be done in front of the decision maker. I want you to take these examples and apply them to the God head process. When you are dealing with the Word, take everything that you can concerning that Word out of all situations, and substances, but take it toward the Father’s Will, the decision maker. And when you are dealing with the Holy Ghost, take every movement you see on the situations, and substances that concerned the Word, and move with it toward the Father’s Will, the decision maker. And finally, when you are positioned from your movements with the Holy Ghost, along with situations and substances concerning the Word, you should be right toward the time and season of the Father, now step on in it as it passes your way. Welcome to Father, the decision maker. The Closer We Get To Father, The More In Line With Father We Are.
