When we begin to build a relationship with Father, and we begin to know Him according to His purpose in the Godhead, we will need to take on His heart, and His spirit. The way in which Jesus’ purpose in the Godhead will have him to handle a new convert member of the Body of Christ, as well as a still coming to maturity in the Lord veteran member of the Body of Christ, is far from the way in which Father’s purpose will have him to handle a seasoned son and daughter member of the Body of Christ. When you are dealing with Jesus, you will learn how to walk in the word as you keep his commandments, and do what you have received from His word to do. This is how you begin to build your relationship with Jesus, and this is how He knows when you are ready to be given opportunity to come to Father: John 14:21, “He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.” Once we show Jesus that we love him; and by the way, if we keep his commandments, we are then showing him that we love him because it takes the love of him to keep his commandments. And by keeping Jesus’ commandments, we are keeping the commandments of Father: John 14:10, “Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.” The Father that dwelleth in Jesus, is the ‘Will” that dwelleth in the “Word,” and it is the “Will” that drives the Word to doeth the work. Jesus states above in John 14:21, “and will manifest myself to him that loveth me.” So Jesus will manifest himself to those who keep his commandments and/or his words, because they would have learned how to walk it out, now walk it out. lol. There I go again, now walk it out. Stop it James. Now Jesus does not just manifest himself out of the goodness of his heart, but he does manifest himself as his commandments and/or his words are made flesh or natural; and that happens because you walk it out. And once you walk the word out, you would have made the “Word” flesh or natural, from all of the faith substances that you dressed the word in, along your way, to walk it out. It is not an easy thing to walk out the word, so we are given the spirit of the Son to empower us along the way: Galatians 4:6, “And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.” So when the walking out of the “word” gets tough, then we get tough going, because we have the Spirit of all tough, the Son himself, in our hearts to lead us on.
Now the Spirit of the “Son” is here to do the Son thing. This means it is here to help show all who want to be as a Son, sons and daughters alike, what it will take to be able to do what the Father tells them to do. This is how we build such a relationship with Jesus to where he will allow us the opportunity to come to Father. And remember the one scripture that you should know by hard now as much as I use it: 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.” Many members refer to this scripture to only mean eternal life in Heaven with Father when the time comes, but this is a key element in the process here on earth when we are walking out the word to bring to pass that which we hope for. You see, we need the Spirit of the Son not to enter into the kingdom of Heaven; for we do that by faith, and by believing that Jesus is the Son of God. However, once we are members of the Body of Christ, then we do need help to learn this brand new walk, and to renew our minds along the way. And as we learn how to walk out the word on multiple faith levels simultaneously, the Spirit of the Son in our hearts will be one with us along the way. So it is by the Spirit of the Son in our hearts in which we sons and daughters become one with Jesus to keep his words; and by showing that we can keep his word, Father will come to us also for us to love him as we did Jesus: John 14:23, “Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.” This is the place when we are walking out the word on multiple faith levels simultaneously, where the Father is needed to complete the process. We already use Father simultaneously on multiple small levels of faith simply because the faith from the “Word” overlaps the faith from the “Will” in certain things to complete them. For example, I am not tested on elementary level math for entrance into scholarship consideration if I pass all the high school level math: for if I pass high school level math, there is already built in consideration that my faith level will also pass the “Will” of the elementary math too. In this case, I will now need the Spirit of college level math to come in at some point, so that I will be able to do the “Will” of the college math too. There are many faith operations in which we don’t have to call on the Spirit of Father to bring our faith level up because the consideration has been fulfilled at the Word level. When we first spoke in tongues, we needed the Holy Ghost to fill us first or to baptize us first before we could speak; however, now all that most of us need is our will or desire to speak, and we can do it by gift, or by his presence in praise and worship; and not just only according to the time and season of Father at hand. The Spirit of Father is needed to finish what has been started by the Word as we walked in the Spirit of the Son, and what we have moved into position by the Holy Ghost through his gifts in us and/or when ushering in his presence. The Spirit of the Son helps us to keep the Word, and the Spirit of the Father helps us to keep the truth of the Word: John 4:24, “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” There is a difference in the “Word” to walk out, and in the “Truth” that the “Word” walked out becomes: The “Word” made Jesus started out in a manger, but the “Truth” of the Word made Jesus, died on the cross, and was risen on the third day. We have to walk out the Word to find out the “Truth” that the “Word” walked out becomes. This is why so many members leave so much on the table that God has for them: for the “Truth” of their “Word” is usually not found out. Matthew 10:20, “For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you:” you got to walk it out of you.
