Coming full circle to win our battles so that we can bring to pass that which we hope for, only happens in Father. Why? Because that part is his part: taking our little, and making it our greater. If we are going to win with what we already have, then we are going to need the one who specializes in winning by being who he is, the greater. Jesus has been very clear about his position on this matter, and have left no doubt by making it the written word of God: 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.” This word can not be explained away. It can not be taken out of context to mean something else other than what it says. I have no problem with Jesus’ Father being called greater than the Son, by the Son himself. I know that I have always viewed my natural father as being the greater of us two; and it also pleased him very much to help give me the fullness of a four year college degree in bodily form. However, it is very important that we see this from the perspective in which it was given: Father’s perspective. When Jesus was given by his Father the fullness of the God head in bodily form; or when I was given help by my father to have the fullness of a four year college degree in bodily form, we did not become greater than our Father/father because of what we had been given. The Father/father could have come forth before the Son/son, but the Son/son could not have come forth before the Father/father. 1 Corinthians 14:40, “Let all things be done decently and in order.” So let’s look at the position of the Father and the Son from the beginning before the world was, and then we will know the position of the Father and the Son now since God is still the same God. Hebrews 13:8, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.” We Find The Little, Then Father Finds The Greater.
The position in which the Father and the Son have in overseeing the Body of Christ is really what we have before us. It was at this point in which the Word was made flesh, or made Jesus; and he was sent to start and be the head of the Body of Christ, the Church. The Father and the Son have no problems in the operation because the operation is as it always has been, except for the members of the Body of Christ have a role to play now with the Godhead. The Father and the Son still play the same role for the most part in which they have always played: Father Will it, and the Son be it, as in being Father’s truth. Now let’s roll it back to before the beginning of the world, in the same fashion in which Jesus did after his resurrection from the dead: let’s go down memory lane with Jesus for a minute. 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.” So yeah, Jesus has completed what he came to do, and he is ready to get back to the role in which he had before the world was. Jesus didn’t have to deal with the faith of man before the world was. No, the Father would just send it forth to let it be, and it would just be before the end of the day. I can imagine hearing Jesus now, where did those days go Father? I can also imagine hearing someone ask the question, “Jesus was here before the world was, and before he was made flesh as Mary’s precious baby? Well, you read it for yourself, yes he was! I would take you through all of that, but today, I need us to know the position of the Father and Son so that we can better roll with them in the Godhead. We the members of the Body of Christ play a role in the Godhead in which we can delay, and/or miss what we hope for if we don’t improve our skill level: the anointing is there, but the skill level needs a little bit more knowledge to lift us up higher to the greater. We Find The Little, Then Father Finds The Greater.
Now speaking of greater, I am going to make this short and sweet just so we can identify how to improve our skill level in any faith operation. 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.” We can read in verse one here that the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Why was this Word that was with God, also God? Well, Jesus tells us all the time throughout many scripture that the words that he speak are not his words, but are the words of his Father: John 14:24, “He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.” So when we take what we know about the Word being made flesh, or Jesus later on, then we can know that this Word with God was Jesus, and this Jesus was also God. And furthermore, we know that the Word that was with God was not of its own, but that it was sent from the Father. And since the Word came from the Father, the Father would be the greater. The only time that the Word, and the Will are equal is when the Will is sent forth as the Word. The Will can always send forth a Word, but the Word can never send forth itself. When the Word came forth for Hezekiah to die, that Word was with God and it was God; however, once Hezekiah ask to live on, the Prophet had to go back to get the Will, for the Word could not just change itself. Once the Will was reveal, the new Word was reveal, and again the Will and the Word was God. The Father has a vast Will in his bosom that is unknown to man, and until the greater sends it forth, it will be a Word that is with God and that is God just waiting to be sent forth by God. So today once we receive the Word, we must let it be all the substance that it can be; and then we must look to and also just know that the Father will find the rest of what we need. The Father can send forth without measure all the Will in which we need, but the Word can only bring forth the measure of the Will sent. The skill to improve on is this: exhaust your Word to let it be all that you can get out of it; and then you need to improve on your just knowing that the Father, the greater, will find you what you need because he can always send forth the unspoken Will, the greater. We Find The Little, Then Father Finds The Greater.
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good.
