I was in a recent conversation with someone who talked a lot about the fairness of God. It was like the person was trying to be self-convincing by trying to convince me. Then when I was asked what I thought about the fairness of God, I replied that there is no other one that is as just or as righteous as God, even unto the Father. That reply was my set up to allow me to answer the question presented without directly jumping straight to the point. I had detected or sense that the person was really hanging on to what was being hoped to be the truth and confirmed by me; therefore, I wanted to make sure that I carried that sensitivity into my response so that I may move the person to a place of truth. And when you have been a counselor, and a advisor of people for such a long time, you pick up on when there have been experiences that did not come out as planned. These types experiences can bring a person to begin to question something in which they believe. In the case of this person, that something that was being questioned was the fairness of God. So you know to not respond directly yet so that you don’t give an answer that will cause the person to doubt more, for the goal is always to move the person back to a place of peace and assurance in that they should believe. We all know that if we were just giving a one word opportunity answer to respond with to the question is God fair, of course the answer would be yes. The one thing that I look for in dealing with people is to listen to find out what type of relationship do they see themselves having with the members of the Godhead: Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost. The relationship that one has with each Godhead member will determine what is deemed as the fairness of the one unified God. This is important because if I don’t go through the proper protocols to walk with God, I will not be able to have the full experience needed personally to deem God as he is, A MORE THAN FAIR GOD. If I go to the White House to chat with the President, that my friend will not come close to happening if I have not cleared proper protocols; and I also must have an already known reason given to his staff as to why I need to see him in which the staff can not handle themselves. Is the President being unfair to me to not to talk to me when I just showed up of my own accord, with no appointment to see “THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES?” I know he is not being unfair to me; and I know this because I understand the way it works. Operating On What You Got, May Get You To Operating On What You Could Not.
One might say that I did not know that we had a proper protocol to follow when it comes to walking in the fulness of God. Oh yeah, Father set it up so that we would be able to handle his glory on a need to grow basis: the more you need to grow, the more of his glory you need to know. And we could not just handle his glory if there were no protocol, or order of precedence to adhere to. Moses tried that much earlier, to see the glory of God, but God put him in a protocol (cliff), and let him handle what he could from the backside. It is no different today, for God is the same today, as he was back then; and we too have our cliff or protocol to follow if we are going to have an appoint confirmed with the Godhead member as we need to grow to need to know more of his glory. Now, if you want to pray, praise, and worship God, Jesus is always right there for you to have a little talk with for he hears you from close by within your heart. However, Jesus will be the first to tell you, as he did tell the Apostles before he ascended up on high to right hand of God. Jesus told them before they could leave Jerusalem, their present growth, that they would need to grow more: they needed to know more of the fulness of God before going forth in the Word given to them by Jesus himself. They needed the promise of the Holy Ghost, or in other words, they needed more of the protocol in order to do what they had been commissioned to do. If there was one who knew better than any other, it would be Jesus since he had been a part of protocol as the Word before he was made flesh or Jesus. Jesus tells them in a manner of speaking, I have finished my work here, and it it next Godhead member up. Here we can see the protocol happening, or the cliff making way to give them more of the fulness of God needed to grow more. The Apostles needed to go now and do the Will of God; therefore, after all this time with Jesus (relationship), they are ready for more. The reason that we can say next Godhead member up, is because that is exactly what Jesus did say: you have your relationship with me, and now you will have your relationship with another comforter, and I must get out of here before he will come. 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.” So God is not going to be unfair to us; however, if we don’t let the “Word” get to full faith to finish his work so that he can get out of the way; what we need next to happen will not happen. The Holy Ghost will not come unto us if we choose to keep the Word hostage. You know that if Jesus didn’t know protocol, or that he had to get up out of there, they would have kept Jesus right there with them for a long a they could just like many of us do with our Word. You have to know when the Word is at full faith in order to move the next member of the Godhead into position to do what he came to do. So I can see how someone might begin to question the fairness of God if he hasn’t been allowed to be fair. Operating On What You Got, May Get You To Operating On What You Could Not.
If it was me, I would want to know why and when did the Father set all of this up. Oh, I am doing the writing here; therefore, I can just right all that in here for those who would want to know. First, I must release the right of waiver: Romans 11:33-34, “ O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! 34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?” The answer to that is no one has been his counsellor; however, I will offer you what I do know about it from his Word. The answer to why is all so easy, for I believe that we know the answer, or have at least heard it over and over again. John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” So after trying, and doing all God could do to save us from sin, from the Garden of Eden right on up through the Law; and Lord knows all of that which was in between, after almost 4000 years of loving us, he had to so loved us and send Jesus. When all else fails no matter how much you show your love; and you have to reach down within and give that part of yourself to make it happen, well, that’s so loved. How many are willing to go to the protocol of so loved, and reach down within and give that part of yourself that is the most to you in order to make it happen? I can see why it may be a challenge to deem the fairness of God, for the protocol is empowered by the willingness of the relationship to give up what it takes for the purpose intended. Let’s look over at our cliff, or our protocol, as it pleased the Father to set this up so that we could have all the Glory with him in which we could bear. 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. ” In these two verses we can see the set up of all fulness in Jesus to where it pleases the Father; however, this scripture is just speaking of Jesus as the head of the body at the moment. So where do we come in since we will be in Christ as his body, the Church, once we receive him by faith as being the Son of God? And since we are in Christ, we will also be in him where should all fulness dwell. Oh, here is where it talks about where we are as the body, and how we will operate in our protocol or cliff to bear all fulness. 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.” Now, in these two verses we can see that bodily, the Church, will dwelleth in the fulness of God through the Godhead. This means that we will dwell in the level of God needed as we move through the Godhead. We will not just be in his full glory when not needed, but we will of the Godhead be in the level of his glory needed to complete our purpose; or bring to pass the thing we hoped for. We will go in and out of the Godhead to complete our purpose. John 10:9, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.” When we process through the Godhead, we have protocol and a cliff to bear his fulness; and we can only grow more into the fulness on an as need basis. Father does not put more on us than we can bear, now that is what I call a more than fair Father. Operating On What You Got, May Get You To Operating On What You Could Not.
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good.
