There is no other way to safely walk a spiritual minefield, other than to walk it with Father. And once many members of the Body of Christ realizes that they are in a spiritual minefield, then they don’t want to move at all. I guess it is some rationale to not moving at all: if your current location is not exploding on you, then you could remain alive longer if you stay put. The truth be known, all of the members of the Body of Christ are in an ongoing spiritual minefield; however, the difference for some members from other members is the level of attention that their position receives from their enemies. If a member of the Body of Christ proves to just be happy go lucky in not being about the Father’s business; therefore, showing to be of no threat to the Prince of this world, then resources and time would be used at another member’s position who has a need, to do Father’s deed. So those happy go lucky members who have no urgency about themselves to be about the Father’s business, can pretty much go on about their own business without much concern of walking up on an exploding mine. Now of course, the enemy would allow those members from time to time, as a part of his strategy, to run into a little trouble here and there just to keep those member honestly thinking about everything. The enemy is not going to want to interrupt the happy go lucky member who is not going about the Father’s business. No, why make Mr. or Ms. Happy Go Lucky go need the Father by default? And then there are those of us that must be about Father’s business, or the rest of our business will not bring us the joy and the fulfillment that it should bring.

Is it better to walk a spiritual minefield with the Father, or with the Son? Are we kidding? They are one in the Godhead: John 17:11, And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. The Father and the Son, as well as the Holy Ghost, are all one in all that they do. Now obviously, as by Jesus’ proclamation; the Father and the Son are not exactly the same, but they are exactly one: John 14:28, “Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.” We can always just take Jesus at his word, for he is truth: if Jesus says that his Father is greater than he; then I automatically know something is different to make them not the exact same. It is more like simple math than like rocket science: ten is greater than six. The two, both ten and six, both have six; however, the ten is different and greater because it has more. The element that makes the Father and the Son one, as well as the ten and the six one, is the fact that each of them will be consumed by the greater one, as the other is consumed to keep them one. If the ten is the Father, and the Son is the six, the Father would always count up to six, and stop there to keep them one. So they are one in each other, but not the same because the Father is left with more as He’s the greater. The six always goes to the ten, and the Son always goes to the Father as stated above in John 14:28; and this is how they are one in each other as the substance of one is always consumed into the other. You see if I am counting to ten, I will have both the six and the ten be one with each other at six, and then the six will lose itself into the ten as the count continues. They will be as one, while not being the same as the ten is left for it has more. To Walk A Spiritual Minefield With Father!
The Son’s position in the Godhead as always been as the Word. It was like this before the world was, in the beginning when God created the Heavens and the Earth, and as well as after Jesus had come, and finished the work in which the Father had sent him to do. Jesus talks about getting back to his place that he had with the Father before the world was, now that he had finished the work that he was sent to do: John 17:4-5, “I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. 5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.” Where was Jesus before the world was, and in what form was Jesus before the world was? Well, we know from just reading it above in John 17:5, that Jesus and the Father had glory together before the world was. And we can also read where Jesus was when he made declarations about the Father: 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.” Yeah, Jesus declared to have had glory with the Father before the world was:” that must have been some bosom to have been in before the world was?

Now with the scripture documenting the glory that the Father and Jesus had together before the world was, we can see the form of Jesus as the Word at the beginning of the creation for the world to be: Heaven and the Earth: Genesis 1:1 & 3, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.” So before the world was, Jesus was with the Father in his bosom together in glory; and at the beginning of the world to be we can see the form of Jesus as the Father sent forth the Word “Let there be light.” And how do we know this to be the form of Jesus at the beginning? John 1:1-3, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.” So we can make the simple spiritual conclusion from this information in order to see why the Word (Jesus), and the Will (Father) is one, but not exactly the same. When the Word (Jesus not made flesh yet) was sent forth from the bosom of the Father to let there be light, the Word was at that point one and actually the same as the Will was concerning the light to the world. So where does the Word (the Son), and the Will (the Father) become not the same; or as Jesus said, where does the Father become greater? It’s simple in that the Will (the Father) is the one who sends forth the Word (the Son). And the Will can always be more or greater than the Word, and the Word can never be greater than itself. For example, if the Word tells Hezekiah to get ready to die, we also know that this is one with the Will to get ready to die. However, if Hezekiah wants to live longer, the Word will not tell Hezekiah to live longer of its own self. The Word can only say what the Will (the Father) tells it to say. If Hezekiah wants to live longer, he will need the Father to have a different Will greater than the current Word, and send it forth: the Will is always the Word, and a new Will can always be greater than the current Word. The Prophet could not change the Word himself, but the Prophet can get a new Word sent if Father has a different Will, as a different Will can be greater than the current Word. In the same manner as the number six must go back into the number ten and become one with it, the Word must come back into the Will and become one with it. Jesus always did what the Father told him to do, and Jesus did not do his own will. Even now Jesus will fulfil the position of the Word in the Godhead. When Jesus ascended upon high to be at the right hand of glory, Jesus gave gifts to men, but they were only gifts from the Word position of the Godhead; mainly the fivefold ministry, along with other administrative offices of word support.

So you and I can send forth an email with our will, and the email will be one with our will. You and I can recall the email, but the email can not recall itself. The email may need to be changed, but it can not be changed without coming back to us for a changed will. When the Apostles ask Jesus how to pray, and with the Word (Jesus) soon to be going to be with the Father, they will now need to pray to the Father just for any updates. Once the Word is sent forth, it can’t update it self, and we are not to change the Word at all. The Father is the one to change his Word, and only if he has changed his Will. All of this is not about praying to who in the Godhead, but this is about praying to where in the Godhead, for the Godhead is God. Jesus was setting up the process of what was next since he knew the Word foundation was solid. He didn’t have the time to nurture the Word all the way to harvest, but he did leave them ready for what was next to come. You and I need to focus on where in the Godhead as oppose to who in the Godhead: the Godhead members are all one, and we just need to flow with the member up. For example, if we need the working of miracles, we don’t need to forego opportunity when it springs forth to continue to hold on to what the Will says: we need the Holy Ghost member to move with us as one to bring it to pass now. After Jesus had given all the Word that he had intended to give, he said to the Apostles that it was better for them that he left. Can you imagine any situation where it would be better if Jesus left? John 16:7, “Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.” It is not about who when it comes to the Godhead, but it’s about where. So when we walk a spiritual minefield with Father, it is not about who in the Godhead that we are walking with, but it is about where in the Godhead it is expedient for us to be walking. If the Word has done its part, and is ready to go back to the Father to be consumed to remain one, let it go; and let what springs up next, spring up next. In a minefield you walk through it only as the Godhead member spring forth to show you where to step to next. We must make sure that we are not holding on to Jesus or the Word beyond the time of processing a particular operation, for it is not expedient for us to do so.
