When Jesus begins to reveal the Father to us, there is a new knowledge. In Matthew 11:27, “All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will REVEAL him.” The new knowledge is that which is sent forth for the first time for us to behold. The Father’s truth is Jesus; therefore, no man can know that which has not yet been sent forth until Jesus reveals it. And no man can know the Father, save the Son, because the Son and the Father are together in all that the Father Wills, spoken or unspoken, until the time comes for one or the other to reveal it to man. We know that Jesus knew the Father when he was still the Word, yet to be made flesh; and He as the Word gloried in the Will of the Father, spoken or unspoken, 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.” Here in scripture Jesus clearly talks to the Father about “glorifying thou me with thine own self with the glory that I had with thee before the world was.” And we know that the physical Jesus, son of man, was no where to be found in physical form before the world was. However, He was around at that time with the Father, in His bosom, in the form of the Word, just learning the ends and outs of the family business while He shared in the glory with Father. We can read here in John 1:18, “No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.” And when you do your cross referencing, one of the many similar scriptures describing the form of Jesus in the bosom of the Father is John 1:14, “And the “Word” was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” You are welcomed to read the other reference scriptures if you like, but they also refer to the “Word” as being the one in the bosom of the Father before the world was. What does this also confirm to us concerning the pay grade level of the Word? The Word paygrade level is very high: the Word was, and is as much involved with the Will as a God could be up unto creating it, or coming up with it.
We can begin to see the management style in which the Father would apply to His oversight of the Word. First of all, Father involved the Word in His Will while in His bosom to work with Him before the world was; and before there were non-spiritual beings around to need God’s Will to be communicated in Word form. Although, Jesus in Word form, was being about His Father’s business from early on while in His Father’s Bosom, Father was using that time to establish the communication of His Will by Jesus, to rule over the spiritual world before the world was, as well as the natural world soon to come a little later. We know of the success Father had, along with Jesus in Word form, from how Jesus talked of the glory experienced working with the Father before the world was in John 17:5, as stated in the above paragraph. The Father created the Word to be His Will Revealed, more so than He did to just voice His Will. And when it was time for the world to be made, the work done by the Father and the Word before the world was, just kept on rolling with the glory they already had together. We can really see the functional difference between Father, the Will; and Jesus, the Word, once the Word is out of the spiritual bosom of Father, and sent forth as a Word Spoken, into the natural world. However, whether the Will is being done in Heaven or in the earth, Father still expects the Word to reveal or manifest His Will. The relationship between the Will and the Word remained the same at the start of the world, just as it had been before the world was to start. We can read of the relationship between the Will and the Word in John 1:1. It reads, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” So in the beginning before the world was, was the Word, and the Word was with God because it came from the Will that came from God; and the Word was God since it was the exact manifestation, or revelation of the Will from God. So nothing changes relationship wise between the Will and the Word as we move on to the beginning of the start of the world. It’s still the same. In the beginning of the start of the world, was the Word sent forth, and the Word was with God because it still came from the Will that came from God just as it did earlier when the Word was in the bosom of the Father before the world was; and the Word was still God since it was the exact manifestation, or revelation of the Will from God.
As I mentioned in the above paragraph, because of the separation of the Word from the Bosom of the Father as it was before the world was, we can clearly see the functional difference between Father, the Will; and Jesus, the Word. And this difference is why you and I will need to build a relationship with Father, as well as with Jesus. This functional difference was there between them, while Jesus was in Word form; but since the Word was in the bosom of the Father in their true image of being one, the difference did not matter before the world was. Then at the start of the world, and the Word was sent forth to manifest and reveal the Will of Father, the built in relationship opportunity was revealed. When the Word is sent forth to manifest, or reveal the Will of Father, we now only get the Word spoken for the specific Will. The Function of the Word sent forth by Jesus is now and always has been, to say only what the Father’s Will is for now. It was like that, even with Jesus in Word form, in the bosom; but since they were one in the God image before the world was, it did not matter. When the Will and the Word were one before the world was, Jesus in Word form was privy to all of the Will. All of it was just there, and the Word did not have to separate from the Will to go forth from the bosom. Jesus function to the Body of Christ is to say what the Father says, and not include all the rest that He sees out there in the vast Will of His Father: John 5:30, “I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.” Jesus’ function is to receive from the Father His Will, and to send forth His Word to us according to the Will of the Father. There is much that Jesus knows about the Will of Father from the Word position, but His function is to give us the specific Word concerning that Will. The Father wants to have relationship with us, and He will not let us have it all without Him. The plan is for us to seek Him too: John 4:23, ‘But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.” There is an increase in our fold return in all categories when we find Father, but if we choose not to seek after Father, the Body of Christ will still be sufficient for all our needs. The Father will keep seeking at the door of the Body of Christ for those sons and daughters who are seeking after Him. Father Plans To Seek You!
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good.
