It takes some getting use to when one sets out to have Father as a best friend. When we think about having him as a best friend, we can’t think about it as a one way deal. We as humans see the almighty God as the one in which the friendship breeds from; however, Father will be looking to see what is it that we are willing to bring to the table. I have no doubt that many of the members of the body of Christ have been given the opportunity to have Father as a best friend, but having the wrong perspective on what that may mean has caused a lot of members to not even be aware that the opportunity came. When God comes to find out just what level of friendship with each of us that he can depend on, we will usually attribute the situation to the devil because of how it may sound. Now being Abraham, and along with your wife having shown so little trust in God that he would do what he said no matter your age or your circumstance; then God will have to come at you to touch the word in which he did deliver as he said, but in which you did not believe he would do. Can you imagine telling your prayer partner, or your Pastor that Father really wants to be close friends with me; and I have to go sacrifice Isaac? Yeah, I bet you can’t imagine that either; and that is why Abraham didn’t tell anyone either. The devil is about to make Abraham go kill his son: you know all the things that will be said about you by us people of God. The thing is, no one just wants to believe that a loving God would ask such a thing; furthermore, that would mean that they could also be asked, so let’s nip this thing in the bud now. Lol. It’s not funny. How does that song go: “so be careful what you wish for ’cause you just might get it” When it comes to Father, be careful what you ask for ’cause you will get the opportunity to get it. Father As A Best Friend.
When you think about having Father to be a best friend, and although Father and Jesus are one, they are not the same; therefore, you can not sit there thinking that Father understands the pain that this dance with him may bring to us. Jesus understands the pain of dancing with Father having come down here to earth like us to experience it for himself, but Father gets the info on our pain from our chief advocate, Jesus. 1 John 2:1-2, “My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: 2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.” So Jesus is at the right hand of glory, and he always has us on his agenda. So one of the big differences between the Father and the Son is that the Father sits at the right hand of no one: 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 is important to know if you decide to go after Father as a best friend because he will expect you to know that there is nothing greater than he is that you possess: so do you want to be best friends with me , or best friends with the thing that’s with you? Father will want to know that; and Jesus just went ahead and went on record with it: John 6:37-38, “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. 38) For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.” Whatever the Father wants is greater than anything that I want; therefore, when it comes to me, I will no wise cast it out. Father As A Best Friend.
You have to ask yourself the question when it comes to Father. Do I want to no wise cast out whatever it is that he gives me; because whatever it is, is greater than whatever I have to give? If you are not coming to Father to really be a best friend, meaning that you come to do his Will, and not your will regardless of the pain; then you might not want to expand that best friend dance up to Father just yet. The Father wants what he wants when he wants it, and there is nothing that we can come to do, according to Jesus, that would be greater than what Father may give us to do. We are not required to be a best friend to Father, but he will come and make his abode with us if we make the pledge to Jesus to keep his commandments. The Navy Seals is the one example that can clear this up for you. You can be in the branch of the military in which you believe the most as reflected to a degree by your test scores, and serve your country whole heartily; and you will not be required or can you be ordered to be a Navy Seale. If you desire to be a Navy Seale, you really need to desire to do this with all your heart; and then let the qualifying for the opportunity begin. In the Church, we can just hang out in the Body of Christ, and serve our Lord and Savior whole heartily; and you will not be required or can you by another’s will be made to hang out with the Father. Jesus is all we need if making it to heaven is all that we want along with life more abundantly; however, Father is seeking those who can step outside the Body box to serve him as the greater. John 4:23-24, “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. 24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” In the Body of Christ, we get to walk out the word to full faith at a pace in which we believe we can handle; but when it comes to Father, he might drop a sacrifice on you like it’s hot, and at that time there is nothing greater than he is, so you do it. When you come to the Father, you don’t come to pray about doing it; no, you come to do it now. Jesus is even there to protect us from more than we can bear; and if we are not ready to handle the heat in which comes with the Father in spirit and in truth, he will not let you take it on: John 14:6, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” Father As A Best Friend.
I mention to you earlier that the Father and the Son are one, but different: they have different roles to play in the Godhead to bring to pass that in which you may come to do. Jesus is fully in charge of the Word Godhead, and if you do not bring a particular Word given you to full faith so that it is positioned for the next Godhead, then Jesus is not going to let you move on prematurely. He will just keep you in the Word Godhead branch for that particular word to assist you to full faith before he let’s you move on not ready for the next Godhead. The Godheads are the total of the one God, but the total must be added together to make the complete fulness of God in the Body of Christ. 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.” I was called by Father to make him my best friend, and he has kept me protected from man all of these years: I have avoided being exposed as the weak human that I am because I stay at a level in him in which many seem to avoid. It is always my desire to make the promised land, or promised whatever it is in eleven days as opposed to forty years metaphorically speaking. I will always take the short route because my best friend has more power than any other just as long as he is kept as the greater than any other person, place, or thing that I may have. I remember years back when Father gave me a path to the promised land of best friend, and I had to show him if the path was to difficult for me to follow so that he would know for future operations. He just simply said to me, “do not attend your mother’s wedding.” It was hard for me back then because it was not the thing that you expect to hear from God concerning your mom’s wedding. This will let me see if I can follow Jesus in that my Father is greater than anything that I may have to do, and in this case, my mother’s wedding. The Father now knows that he’s my best friend, and that he is definitely greater than I: I have nothing greater than Father in which I would not give up to him. I have put up; therefore, I don’t have to shut up. What a mighty best friend to have: he can just Will up stuff anytime I need it: no one else can just Will up. Father As A Best Friend.
