In yesterday’s post entitled, “Don’t Save It, For Now Father Is,” we talked about making your move now. This concerns the things that you want to do according to the Father’s Will for your life as opposed to thinking that you have the time to put them off another day. The post from yesterday foundation was based on the teachings in James 4:13-14, “Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain:14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.” These two scriptures together tell us to “Go to now” for “ye know not what shall be on the morrow,” right? However, we can’t just “Go to now” on everything that we are working on with God based on the odds that we might not be around tomorrow to Go to now, can we? Well once again, and as always, the answer can be found in the Word: James 4:15, “For that ye ought to say, “If the Lord will,” we shall live, and do this, or that.” Yep, there is the answer, all hiding there in broad five-fold ministry teacher-light. First of all, the answer in James 4:13-14 clearly says “Go to now,” and do this, or that. And (14) Whereas you know not if this chance will come around again tomorrow, for your life may be changed or over by tomorrow. And don’t presume by being spiritual that the Father will always be present to accommodate us. The lack of attention to detail or to the lack of preparation on our part to take care of Father’s business when the time came as was the case with five of the ten virgins, will be costly. Five of the ten virgins were wise, and did not presume that they would be allowed to make up time if they fell short in some aspect when the time came to “Go to now.”
In one sense, the scripture is indeed addressing both sides of the argument, ours and Father’s, in the same two verses. On one hand, you and I are missing his point concerning His meaning of “Go to now,” and not to wait until later. I use the phrase not to wait until later because it allows me to address both sides, ours and Father’s, concerning “Go to now.” Now again, in James 4:15, “For that ye ought to say, “If the Lord will,” we shall live, and do this, or that.” Here we need to know how the meaning of “Go to now” in James 4:13, will come into play with “If the Lord will” in James 4:15. We can see here in verse 15 the fence go up to say that you just don’t “Go to now” as directed in verse 13, at any time in which you wish to do this, or that. So if I can only “Go to now,” to do this or that “If the Lord will,” when do I know If the Lord will or when will the Lord permit me to do this, or that? Once we build a relationship with Jesus through the “Word,” we learn quickly that we always “Go to now” when the faith comes to move us. And why do I say that we learn quickly when to “Go to now?” If we don’t move when the faith comes, we end up not having this, or that as we hoped for. And once you find yourself missing the mark a few times, you learn quickly to be ready to Go to now when you see the substance show up that can match what you hope for. When the “Word” says that faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the “Word” of God, this is just the shed of the “Word” to the “Holy Ghost” to continue the “Go to now“ process of this, or that to be made flesh or natural. So again, when do we know “If the Lord will” permit us to “Go to now,” to do this, or that? When we see the substance being manifested in our presence, then the Lord will permit us to “Go to now.” There is no other reason for us to make a move on the “Word,” or to do this or that, unless more substance has come to help make change to the this, or the that Word in which we hoped for. The shed from the “Word” to the “Holy Ghost,” is just a simple step in the process to bring to pass that which you hoped for. When I start on the Word, it is just the start. There are spiritual logistics going on up and down all the lines, and all the percepts just to make you be good soil in which the Word was sent forth to manifest. When the proper next move does come along for that Word with substance that matches the truth of the Will, then the faith will come by that Word to give you the permission needed to “Go to now.” And we know that when substance comes to match the Word to do this, or to do that which we hoped for, it is the Holy Ghost moving in us as faith by the Word on the substance needed of the things hoped for: Hebrews 11:1, “now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” When the time comes for you to Go to now, it will be because some of the substance needed for the thing that you hoped for had come along; and you will feel and sense the faith to move you to Go to now.
Let’s look again at the example of the ten virgins using James 4:15, “For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that. We can fill in James 4:15 with the Word that the ten Virgins were standing on to do this, or that. So here we go: the ten Virgins’ version of James 4:15, ” The Bridegroom is coming soon and we will go forth to meet him because what God has for me to do, he has for me to do, and I will be there early at the door so that I can be one of the chosen ones. Until the day comes, I will be ready by doing all that I know to do with joy: I will buy extra oil for my lamp, and I will also replace the old wick so it can burn well. I will be well rested, and in need of nothing. And there isn’t anything left uncheck that can go wrong, and everything will run like clock work, for the Bridegroom will be here when he gets here for us to Go to now.” You can fill in James 4:15, with your own example for an exercise in Go to now shedding. I can see the Bridegroom tarrying to give the five foolish virgins time to see their short comings by recognizing that some of the other women had extra oil, so maybe go get some extra oil while he tarries. And when the time came to move, those without any oil was not ready to receive what God had for them, so what he had for them, will now be had by some others. The Word would not permit them to just shed into the Faith to Go to now because they were not ready, so when he tarried, their lack of preparation took away what God had for them. Now take the results of your exercise, and apply it to all faith operations to lake sure that you are ready to shed into the next member of the Godhead. And remember, Once You Shed Up To Father, There Is No Other Shed. Go to now.
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good.
