Many times there are those who do not have the power to lead onward because they wouldn’t follow the order that came next for them to follow presently. So many times we make so much about ourselves as individuals until we lose sight of what God is doing at the time, and he is forced to take the next in line who is willing to follow. One can not be a leader in the Kingdom of God, specifically at the earth level, if one is not willing to follow the order of the next. Father may have the very hairs on your head all numbered and such: Luke 12:7, “But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.” And Father may have known you before you were in the womb: Jeremiah 1:5, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified[a] you; I [b]ordained you a prophet to the nations.” However, we are not to be mistaken, and think more highly of ourselves than we ought: Romans 12:3, “For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.” The Father has one purpose for all of us as for as he is concerned: Romans 12:2, “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” We each have a different part to play toward helping to make sure that his good and acceptable and perfect will is done. When our hour is at hand to do our part with our measure of faith, or to use what only we have been given individually to use in our role of the operation; Father is not expecting to look for you to come through for him, but you were taking care of a family emergency because you thought more highly of yourself than you ought. You thought that it would be okay to take care of your business, and catch Father’s business on the next go round. There are five virgins who kept themselves perfect just for the Bridegroom who are willing to testify under experience and under oath, that there is no catching the Father’s business on the next go round. You may need to check your plans for today to make sure that you did not enter into the wrong post today: it should say planning to be “Upper Level Sons And Daughters.” Follow The Order, To Have The Order Follow You.
So how do you know if you are planning to be “Upper Level sons and daughters: so that you can “Follow The Order, To Have The Order Follow You?” Well, knowing if you are planning on being upper level sons and daughters just happens so subtly. You know, every once in a while when you are doing your Bible reading, and you will just come across one of the qualifiers that will get you thinking about the true meaning of what does that scripture really mean that you just finished reading? We all ask that question not realizing that we were actually reading without mystery, the true meaning of the scripture as it is already. Some of these qualifiers come at you in a way that make you hope that there is more to it than what meets your eyes current reading of it. And depending on where you are in your development, and according to the Will of the Father concerning your life; you may just get to show Father if you are willing now to step up to the upper level. My Matrix people will remember how the Oracle withheld going further into detail with Neo at that time when they first met because he wasn’t sure of himself just yet. When you first read one of the qualifiers, you will determine if you are ready to know more by your response to what you have read. The Father will be right there looking, for he is always on the after coming to Jesus recruiting trail to see who maybe sure enough to take that upper level step: John 4:23, “But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.” There are already many worshipers in Christ on one level as they continue to grow to know themselves as they walk out the Word; however, Father, the greater level as stated by Jesus himself, is now looking and interviewing those who are ready to walk with him only in Spirit and Truth: John 14:28, :”I am going to the Father, for My Father is greater than I.” Now when you step into standing on the branches from the “Word” of truth and of Spirit with Father, welcome to a taste of Abraham’s world: “just go to a land,” and that was it on the Word for now. First time at it Abraham was now looking for branches of truth and Spirit without knowing that he was looking for them: not much Word coming at all. You and I get Word all day long, and we have the five-fold ministry to help guide us along the way And there are also checks and balances for us to keep from being in over our spiritual heads, in which Abraham the father of faith, just did not have. You and I don’t even have to worry about Jesus letting us go into it if we are not ready to go: John 14:6, “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” So when you by chance read one of those qualifiers that can draw a response from you one way or the other, if you are not ready yet, the Word will not give you the life in it to prematurely go forward. Jesus will keep you safe, and help you through the Word, and the Holy Ghost to continue your development toward knowing yourself, so that you will eventually be ready to go if not ready now. Follow The Order, To Have The Order Follow You.
I remember when I by chance while reading my Bible came across one of the qualifiers. And I in my true nature, not knowing that I was saying yes to an upper level, as I was always ready for a challenge. I am here to tell you, and many of you know this already, don’t rush to leave the plush confines of walking out your daily lives by the Word. The difference in the Word, which is Spirt also, and walking with the Father who is Spirit also, is that the Word is the anchor in which you can always stand on. The truth and Spirit with Father are the branches that came forth from the Word of truth. And you do not stand on branches as an anchor, but you do step on to them to extend toward that which you hope for. The Word of God is life, and when you bring it to full faith, it begins to change to be made into natural or flesh. It will no longer look like it started, but its branches can only produce more truth since they came from the truth. This is why we are told to have our faith by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God: you can get faith from many things, but only the Word of God will give you faith to move substance which will only move on the truth. So when your branches extend and change, you will remain in truth and Spirit as you go on: the Word can only produce truth, while other things will falter to secondary truths that will not give you what you hope for; but by then you are so far down the road on the branches of secondary truths to where you have to live with them for a season until they die out because you finally stop feeding them life. My qualifier scripture came from Luke 14:26, “If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.” Now what does that mean? It does not mean that you have to hate all your people, no not at all. Let me ask you this. Isn’t it great that we are not called to sacrifice our Issacs in todays world as was the Father of faith? However, you can see the truth of Father come to life here. God just wanted to know the truth: Abraham will you really do this for me at all cost. Abraham brings the truth and understanding of Luke 14:26 to us to know what the Father wants. Father doesn’t want you to hate your family, but he does expect you to always choose him over your family regardless of what he ask of you. So there is the answer to your qualifier. And Jesus is not going to let you come to the Father just because you are all emotional when you said yes to the qualifier. I don’t know what your qualifier may be, but you need to be ready when you seek the Father for change as a son or daughter. Follow The Order, To Have The Order Follow You.
The members of the Body of Christ are not pressed to take on the qualifier to show the Father that there is no other person or thing will they put before him. Jesus has been given the fulness of the Godhead in bodily form; therefore, anything that is needed by a member can be handled by the fulness of God that dwells within the bodily form, the church. The Father, who is not a member of the Body of Christ, he will seek the members who want to seek his also. There are many members who do not want to do more than their reasonable service, and that is just find with the Father and the Son. I wanted to do more than the reasonable service which is required of by members of the Body of Christ. Once I made my desire known to seek the Father, he spent no time finding out if my qualifier in Luke 14:26, would hold up to be true. My mother, back at the time, was going to marry this man. I knew that it was not the will of the Father for the marriage to take place. It also came to my knowledge by other members of the family that they believed the same way, but they did not express as I did that the Father had spoke it to them. I did not mistaken the scripture to suggest or command that I literally hate my mother if she was to go ahead with the marriage. However, when I was the only family member that did not go to the wedding, I was fulfilling the scripture by doing what the Father had directed me to do, and by not being influenced to go against the Father just because of the love, and the pressure of family. The marriage did go on, and it ended before the year was up. And as I understand it, the man died shortly after it was over. I was sadden for my mother, but I was so happy that I had stood with the Father over the family. There have been more times in which I had to stand with the Father over family, and friends; and those times have ended all well, and better off for all involved: that’s just the way the Father rolls. And by the way, my mother and I have never been as close as we are today. It took a long minute to get her out of that land in which she had followed that man to, but she’s finally back to the place where it all started. You remember how Jesus had a qualifier opportunity at the age of twelve years old when he traveled with his parents to Jerusalem. It was a no brainer for Jesus whether to be about the Father’s business, or to be about the parent’s business: Luke 2:49, “And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?” So this is how Jesus saw it all the way: it was like didn’t you know my purpose is to be on the side of my Father? Follow The Order, To Have The Order Follow You.
Jesus did take his first qualifier to heart, and initially showed the Father that he was indeed more important to him than the wishes of his parents. However, Jesus at any age, does not do anything without purpose. Jesus did leave Jerusalem with his parents as they directed, and returned back home with them. The Father would have no problem with this because at Jesus’ age, it would be the correct order to follow. And remember, you can not be the leader needed to be in the future, if you can not be the follower as you should be today. When you can go low according to order, you then prepare yourself to have the order follow you because you were willing to follow according to the order. The scripture tells me that Jesus went on to have favor with man and God afterwards. Luke 2:51-52, “And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them: but his mother kept all these sayings in her heart. 52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.” Always remember that when dealing with Father, it’s not about your person, but it’s about his business. Yes, Father wants to have a personal relationship with us, but according to his Will, and not our will. When you set family guidelines for your home, you are not going to take curfew hours from your children are you? Well, Father is not going to take curfew hours, or any other hours from us, his adopted children. Again, if any just want to do the reasonable service, and have options according to the faith substances that comes from that which they hoped for, then stick with that and be ok. However, if you desire to do that in which the Father will seek to do in Spirit and in Truth, come ready to do that which comes next, and in order. I believe we miss identifying the Father, and we make it about our person. It is not about the human before you in which you are dealing with when what’s next springs forth out at you as a branch would. The upper level son and daughter will recognize it for what it is: it is the truth of the Spirit coming out at you as Father seeks for you to step out on it. Father, and not the man, needs you to Follow The Order, To Have The Order Follow You.
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good.
