Since we are in the Body of Christ, we might as well go to the best place in the body, the greater place, the place of Father. Now I didn’t say it, but the only one that really knows the truth about it said that the Father is greater. 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.” And I do understand that when it comes to eternal life, any place in the body of Christ is a great place to be, for it is your ticket to the ride. Now once that business has been handled, and I am, as I am, in the Body of Christ; therefore, I want to not just have life; but have life more abundantly. These are the couple reasons for which Jesus said he came for: not just for us to have life, but for us to have life more abundantly. John 10:10, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” Now I don’t know about you and your house, but as for me and my house, we are going to receive the opportunity given to might have life more abundantly. And having both life, as well as having life more abundantly, is a might thing because you have to come at it with the right thing. In order to have life in Jesus, you have to come to him believing that he is the Son of God, and receiving him by faith as your Lord and Savior for starters. There is just no other way around it in order for us to might have life: it is ours for the having, if we will have it right. The same goes for us to might have life more abundantly while here on the earth: it is also ours for the having, if we will have it right. Father Is The Place Of The Godhead Where We Want To Be.
Now let’s talk a little more in depth concerning the right way in which we might have life more abundantly while here on the earth. The first thing to know can be summarized best by the phrase in which we all know so well: it is what it is. So let’s first look at what it is that is. The way in which Father set the operation up to run can not be changed: it is what it is, so we must work within it in order to receive from it. Father even gave himself a pat on the back with this one as he was so happy with his work. It was similar to the beginning when God created the Heaven and the Earth; and the one reply that ran throughout creation was, and it was good. This time around Father may have out done himself with the set up of this operation: Colossians 1:18-19, “And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell.” The Father was pleased with the set up of this new operation. I can imagine seeing Father sitting there chewing on a Red Vine licorice bringing it to pass as he ponders along over all the plans in which he had instore for Jesus. The thing that made it work for us is the structure in which Father set up the fulness to dwell. This would be a big deal to man in that it will give us controlled parameters to operate within to keep us from being lost in spiritual space. Jesus would have had no problem with any structure when it came to operating in the fulness of God since he had operated in the fulness already as the Word for centuries before he was made flesh. So what would be the structure set up in which Father would use in order for the man, the body of Christ, to operate in the fulness of God to bring to pass that place which we want to be, Father? Father Is The Place Of The Godhead Where We Want To Be.
The Father is so brilliant in the way in which he gave the Body of Christ, the Church, all the access to the fulness of God, without given the Body more access than it could bear. So let’s look at the structure in which we must operate in order to get to the place of the Godhead where we want to be: Colossians 2:9-10, “For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. 10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power.” So the Father was pleased to have all the fulness of the Godhead dwell in Jesus the head, and his body, the church. This let’s us know that the development of the body over the years is paramount to how we function today. All of you next level sons and daughters remember when the Apostle Paul was so outdone with the church when he could only give them the milk of the word. Can you imagine seeing the level of fulness of the Godhead bodily with that group of mainly milk of the word receivers. My God, we know over all these centuries, at least we hope more than in theory, that the level of fulness of the Godhead bodily has come almost full circle at this point in time. If we were still mainly milk of the word receivers, I would just say forget ever about getting to the place of the Godhead where Father is. We do not get to Father if we can only take in the milk of the word. And yes, I have no doubt from what I know about the current more developed body of Christ, we have come a long way baby, since that time! lol. Father Is The Place Of The Godhead Where We Want To Be.
The real question before us today is just how far have we come in the fulness of the Godhead bodily. When we look at our form bodily, are we a form of equal opportunity development and maturity among all the members of the Godhead; or are we a form with more of a strong suit opportunity development and maturity in one, the Word, with less than efficient opportunity development and maturity in the remaining two members of the Godhead: the Holy Ghost and the Father? We can now find two positions of the body of Christ in which the Godhead members work all operations. We have the aggregate development of the Body of Christ as one whole: meaning on a scale of one to five, how do we rate overall in our completeness in all things? If I broke down the aggregate into categories, I would give the Body of Christ a five in the Word, a three in the Holy Ghost, and a one in the Father. The other position of the body of Christ would be in individual development and maturity in the members of the Godhead. There are next level sons and daughters that are highly developed across the Godhead members, but the problem lies within the enormous number of members that are undeveloped and immature across the Godhead members. We can easily see this number burst out the roof when we look at the number of the members of the body of Christ that live in the lack thereof in many areas. The deception is that we do have quite a few members in the body of Christ that do live well, but that number is small when put by the number of non-members of the body of Christ that live much better than they do. If the members of the body of Christ do not have higher education because they lack resources, should they be made to live in lack when the people that do not follow God are the people that usually live the best. We should do the best we can to learn a skill, or to go to college, but if we can’t afford to do either, you also can not afford not to know the fulness of the Godhead. There are people out there who will tell you that knowing God was how they made it to college. There are resources out there with your name on it, and it maybe that the only way to those resources is by the fulness of the Godhead. And the place that you need to be is at the top end of the fulness. The Father is looking for those who need to be at the place where he is, and the time to be there is now: 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. We have spent centuries learning to walk in the Word, and we have spent centuries trying to work the power of the Holy Ghost; but now the time has come to just let Father raise you up from your dead. It is now his time, He will help you. Father Is The Place Of The Godhead Where We Want To Be.
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good.
