One of the reasons that the Father gave to his only begotten Son the fullness of the Godhead in bodily form was so that they the Godhead, the us in Genesis 1:26, could give man as by design a shot at being made in the image and likeness of God. Let’s read the first segment of the first sentence in Genesis 1:26: “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:” There was not going to be a way for man to be made in God’s image after God’s likeness if all that man came to a spiritual fight was with a verbal peace treaty. The first natural man, Adam and Eve, did not last a full natural season, wait check that; they did not last half of a full natural season in the “garden of everything that you needed Eden,” as they were only prepared to fight with a verbal peace treaty based on obedience. I don’t know how many times it took the serpent to out talk their talk, but it was the talk that they heard from the serpent that brought them the faith to do it: Romans 10:17, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” You see there highlighted in bold, that faith cometh by hearing? I know that the scripture finishes the sentence out with, “and hearing by the word of God.” That finish has nothing to do with the “fact” that hearing can bring faith from all type of sources; however, the part of the scripture after the change of meaning comma finishes it out with, “and hearing by the word of God” to direct the members of the Body of Christ to the source from which we only want to receive our faith from. When I receive my faith from the Word of God, I am receiving the truth that is based only on directing me into the Will of God. However, let’s say I take my final source of faith on the matter from a reputable and factual source, say the leading book about healing a broken heart. Now as true and full of answers to many of my questions that this great book may answer, it can not take in consideration that in four months a great change opportunity is going to come my way. While I have indeed been reading and learning how to better deal with my broken heart, I am still dealing with my broken heart. And I still want the word of God to be my final answer because He knows that I have a great change opportunity coming my way. Matter of fact, unlike the book as helpful as it was and is, it has no way of knowing about the upcoming change opportunity, nor when it will be coming. So four months later as the person is feeling better a lil bit from reading the book, and walking down “not as depressed today street,” the person hears a word from God to turn right off that street, and onto “you made it street” into the little bakery. Now faith cometh by hearing, and the hearing that we really want, comes by the Word of God. Well, it has now been twenty one years later since that person made the turn off of “not as depressed today street” because of the book, and onto “you made it street” because of a word from God. The faith to make that turn off that street, and into the bakery where her current husband of twenty years had stopped for a donut at that exact time. This unbeknown to her randevu could have only be known by the one who is always in live time with us in our daily lives, and he is always ready to speak to us when our change has come. Take Your Word Back To The Father To Be Happy.
Whew! My God, how do you do, all that you do? Yes, you want to take your Word back to the Father from whence it came, and be happy. If you want a clear way to know when you should let go of your Word that you have received from God, even the Father; then just know to not let go until you can give it back to him having achieved the purpose for which it was intended. If God gave you a Word that his Will for you was to have a ____________________, you fill in the blank. Now your job is to hold on to that Word until you can return it back to him as his Will manifested. If you can’t return that Word back made flesh or natural for your use, then you are not done yet. Isaiah 55:11, “So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. So as you can clearly see, it shall not return unto the Father unless it has accomplished that which He pleases: he pleases to accomplish His Will. Now we have to understand that the Father knows that you could no longer go to war with just a verbal peace treaty based on obedience. You must still have the obedience, but you are going to need much more that just the verbal peace treaty, known as the Word of God, to be more than overcomers in your fight that Jesus as already won. Now that is something that you don’t see accepted anywhere, with all things being equal, the members of the Body of Christ still have to fight for that which is theirs already won by Jesus. Man, or woman, you can be on the playground, the high school gym, the college quad, the business conference room, or at the NATO summit; if you have already won what is yours, then it is yours. If you are already a Sovereign country having your own political independence, keep the fight alive, the NATO Ghost is coming with power to endue you for victory against the evil one. I know, but I just couldn’t help myself on that one about the NATO Ghost. I got the idea from Jesus. Jesus had already went to the cross, and defeated the evil one; and he knew that the victory had already been won. However, after giving the Word of God himself to the Apostles to share the good news of our victory to all who would hear, he said wait first. Luke 24:49, “behold, I send the promise(the Holy Ghost) of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high. Jesus had come to earth to work, and he came to work as a man in order to put this fullness of the Godhead to the test in the conditions in which we would need it here on earth. Jesus showed us that we no longer would be going into a spiritual war with only the peace treaty in hand. We have now received the fullness of the complete God, and we can now make sure that the Word of God does not return to him void of its purpose. Now when we hear the faith to move that which comes by the Word of God, we now also have the fullness of God’s power in order to do the moving in which we need in order to win what is already ours. I also need you to just know that you may be paused, but you may not be stopped. And most of the pausing that is done in order to bring the Word back to the Father as the manifested Will, is done as your next intentional move. If you get to a place in your faith operation that does not yet have the resources or the space for you, then by your choosing you will do one of two things. One, you will either make the resources already there work for you, and/or you will make space for you with all of the power of the Godhead at your fingertips; Or two, you will choose to produce from the fruit of the Spirit whatever time buying fruit that you need in order to allow the rest of the perfect plan to catch up to you. We are the ones with the power to have what we hoped for: Jesus has already come and personally worked out all of the everything. Now in the words of one of my friends favorite saying, “Now Work It Out, Now Work It Out!” Take Your Word Back To The Father To Be Happy.
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good.
