The last thing that I said to you in the previous post was this: “I am going to stop, and cover the other things that we just must get passed, later.” I am happy to say that later has become now, so let’s finish the other things that we just must get passed in order to enjoy victory on the journey within the Father’s plan to get us to his Will. I would recommend reading the previous post, “The Father’s Will Plan Is For You,” in order to finish this post out with us in all clarity. In that post we established how there is no way around the Word of God: the way to victory in the Will plan that Father has for you must come through the Word. We know that when it comes to Father, there is nothing made that was made that did not come by the Word of God: John 1:3, “All things were made by him(the Word); and without him was not any thing made that was made.” There will be times when Father will audibly address certain things himself, and not send forth the Word to handle it; but the thing that the Father may address will have already first come from the Word. When Father spoke from Heaven about Jesus, John the Baptist had already laid down the Word to be prepared for the coming of the Lord. We all remember the phrase coined by John the Baptist in the New Testament: Matthew 3:1-2, “In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” You see, the Word of Jesus coming was already sent forth when the proud Father spoke out like we do at the ball game when our child scores the winning point: Matthew 3:17, “And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” The Father’s Will Plan Is For You, Let’s Finish.
The Holy Ghost and the Father both have their own voice: however, when it comes to the Will of Father, the Word made Jesus, will be initiating the Word that is the Will of the Father with the Faith to move. There were plenty other times when Father becomes audible, but again, he will usually be addressing a thing in which the Word has already put out. Jesus had been saying since he was twelve years old that he must be about his Father’s business, and he probably said it off record many times before then. You are who you are, just as Jesus is who he is: I was my father’s son at one hour old, and I am sure that Jesus was his Father’s son before he was twelve years old as he was playing belly trampoline with John before being born. lol. I couldn’t help myself! OK, I will put this scripture in for the belly trampoline remark for the new members of the body to link the phrase with scripture: Luke 1:41, “And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost. You’ll hear me say at times in a post that I was trying to be good; and I know that most of the people who really know the Bible can make good sense out of those remarks intended to bring a smile to all this seriousness. And Although the Word in the flesh(Jesus) had already put forth that he was the Son of the heavenly Father, that did not stop Father from showing off his versatility: instead of going audible on this one, he decides to extend the gift of wisdom by “revelation” to put Peter one up on the other Apostles: Matthew 16:13-17, “When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? 14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. 15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? 16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. 17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.” The Father’s Will Plan Is For You, Let’s Finish.
We do want to be sure to keep this in mind as one of the other things that we just must get passed. If it comes a time when the word in which you may have been given seems to leave you short of the thing that you hoped for, do not take it on your own to change the Word. When we get the word from God, we can not change it, and neither can the Word change itself: Deuteronomy 4:2 & Revelation 22:18-19; and there are many other verses to let us know not to add or take away from the word of God, revealed or written. Now I will say this to the upper level sons and daughters; and that is if your relationship is as such with the Father to where you got it like that with him. I would take any major concerns with the Word given specifically for your hope, to the Father to see if he is willing to do anything about it. The Word may not can change the word, but the Will being changed can send forth a new word: you know like with deciding to give Elisha a double portion of anointing instead of the single portion that came with the job. If you read that entire passage concerning Elisha feeling that he is short of being able to accomplish his hope with the single portion of anointing; then we can see that Father changed his Will to give Elisha an opportunity at the double portion in which he wanted. How do we know that Father changed his Will? Well, that’s just basic “one God,” beginning 101, and you know that already: John 1:1-2, “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.” Whenever we see a new word, as when Elijah was telling Elisha how to make the double portion happen by seeing him when he is taken up; then we already just know that we have the changed Will of God also: the new word can only come forth because of it being the new Will. There can be no new Word if there is no new Will: so since the Will and the Word have been “one,” or the same, since before the world was, it’s like white on rice, Word is Will. Everyone remembers how Hezekiah received the Word of God from the Prophet that he should ready himself for death. Hezekiah went right above the middle man, and straight to Father about this death thing coming up soon. It did save time for Hezekiah when he bypassed the Prophet, because the Prophet can not change the Word sent forth by God. The Father heard Hezekiah present his case in sincerity and in truth. Then Father decided to change his Will from death soon, to fifteen more years. This is how the word to prepare for death became the word to have fifteen more years: the Word did not change, but the Will did change. The changing of the Will by Father will automatically send forth a new word to follow. The Father’s Will Plan Is For You, Let’s Finish.
The Father does ask a lot from us when he ask us to trust him; but he did give up a lot when he gave up his only begotten Son. Now that we know how vital the Word is to our finishing the Will Plan in which Father has for us, can we trust that in the Word is all that we need to have the success that we hope for? We don’t really know all that God sacrificed to have the Word made Jesus, but we do know that this format is more beneficial for you and I then it is for the Father and the Son. We get this idea from Jesus that the operation to come save man as the son of man was not his ideal format to exist; therefore, if we can just get passed our trust and belief challenges, it would bring more of the glory back to God that being in this format as taken away from the Godhead. John 17:5, “And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.” This format with mankind does not bring the glory in which they had before the world was, and that in itself would be a major sacrifice in which the Godhead made just for us. We can add to God the lost of glory by walking in more victories with the Godhead in order for more glory to come to them from our production in working out the things hoped for with God. If we would think about the who of the Word of God, and not always think about the many words of God in which we hear, it would help us get passed the challenge of letting God be God. We have to get passed the fact that we do not let God be God at the point when it really matters because there are so many words of God left out there in which our hope is contained. It is a challenge to just trust God at all cost, and to just believe at all cost when much of our hope is still in the evidence of things not seen. So let’s begin to focus on the who of the Word of God, and not so much on the many words of God still out there in hope land. The who of the Word of God, of course, is Jesus; but what did God initially call the who of the Word of God way before the birth of Jesus? He was already here, but what was he called before man was created? Well, what did God call himself when Moses asked him for his name? Exodus 3:14, “And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.” Here is my point with this, and it will help us with the Father’s Will plan for us. God was I Am That I Am because the who of the Word of God made his Will be. When God said to let there be light, the who of the Word made it be; therefore, I Am that I Am: I Am my Will. This is what Jesus misses in John 17:5, the glory which he had with the Father before the world was, or man came. I don’t know if God called the who of the Word of God by any name back in the day before the world was. I don’t call on myself when I do my will. I just go do what I will when time comes for me to do it; and then when it is done, what you see done is what I will; and now that I am. So let’s look to be the who of the Word, and not worry so much about the many words of God: once we look to work with the who of the Word, to do the Will, then Father can look to be his Will manifested: I Am That I Am. That’s what Jesus misses. The Father’s Will Plan Is For You, Let’s Finish.
