Yeah, what happens when our faith is thrown a curve ball, and our current ongoing faith operation is no longer working hitherto with Father; or, should I say that our current ongoing faith operation is no longer going according to our plans. Jesus seems to believe that working hitherto with the Father is the way to go: John 5:17, “But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work. The thing that Jesus wanted the Jews standing there to know is that his Father had already been working up to this point; therefore, he had already been working with him up to this point. Now here’s the thing that makes this work relationship between Father, and Jesus go so well. I will use a line from one of my Golden Oldie, favorite movies of all times: “He (Alex) said we made a good couple, because I (Chloe) had no expectations and he had plenty.” The only expectations that Jesus had was to do the Will of his Father: John 6:38, “ For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.” Can we be somewhat like Jesus; and come into a faith operation with the Father having no expectations of our own, but to do his Will? When we can do what things soever that the Father is doing, then we can stay in the present with the Father, and work while keeping the hitherto on going. Jesus did not get started in a work, and get to a point where he made the decision that I got this now. So how would Jesus have answered, that he came to a point in his work, and decided that I’m good now on my own? John 5:19, “Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.” If we are to be like Jesus, and follow his lead, then we have to realize that we must stick to the Father’s plan, and do what things soever he doeth: now the work relationship between Father and the members of the Body of Christ will also go so well. I And My Faith Work Hitherto With Father.
I know that we don’t just get to point in our faith operation, and just literally make the decision that we got this now; nor do we make the decision that we’re good now on our own. However, if we get to a place along the way in a faith operation according to the Will of the Father; and the hitherto work of the Father, and of us, does not continue on together, then Houston, we do have a “we got this now” problem entering in from somewhere. These instances can come out of no where, and usually there is no pondering over whether or not to continue in the Will of God: we usually want to continue, no questions or doubt about it. When we look at the parable of the ten virgins in the Bible, they all believed that they were prepared to receive that which God had for them. We hear people innocently say all the time with belief, what God has for me, he has for me; however, if we do something that takes us out of the way according to the Will of God, then he might have had what he had for us, but we might not get it if we are out of the way of his coming. I mean, who would have planned for the possibility that the God who is always on time, would decide to tarry. Now that he has tarried, five of the virgins will not get what God had for them because they were out of the way of his coming. Listen, faith cometh by hearing; and if you hear anything that could be faith substance to help you with the work in which you hitherto with the Father up to this point, then go and show the skill level to get that substance without an updated, unavailable itinerary. When the five virgins that had the oil that they needed for that they knew; and then also having seen, heard, helped one of the other virgins move her extra container over a foot, or however it was made known that the other five had done more, then that five should had gone for more also while the tarry was going on to give them a chance to go get more. We must always be looking to see how the Father is working hitherto, or we want know what work to do ourselves with our faith. Jesus knew what work to do with the Father not by being all knowing, for he can not leave that as an example for us to follow who can not be all knowing. So Jesus left the example that we can follow to stay in the ongoing fight to extend the hitherto unto going further to, according to his Will. So Jesus knew what he came to earth to do, so whenever he saw evidence of what he came to do, he knew that the Father, who is a spirit, would be doing it too, hitherto. So what did Jesus come to do: Luke 4:18, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,” So Jesus saw John 5:5 show itself, “And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.” Then Jesus saw that in which he came to do, and joined in with the Father who was doing it hitherto, and Jesus worked too. This is a great example to leave for the members of the Body of Christ to follow, because once they see what they came to do or that in which they hoped for according to the Will of God; then they will know when to move in faith with the work they have been called to do. That certain man there told Jesus what was wrong with him, and Jesus heard the faith to move, and he healed the man as he was anointed to do: Romans 10:17, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God: Luke 4:18. Now that’s an example that he can leave for us to follow, and join in with the work of the Father hitherto. The Father has already began his work, and once you hear that which you have been called to do, then you can work with him too. And by the way, the Father does need us to dress what he is doing so that it will not remain evidence unseen. I And My Faith Work Hitherto With Father.
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good.
