Let us remind ourselves of the few things we have mentioned in the course of our discussion on the mystery of godliness. We talked about the partnership between the Father, the Word and the Spirit. Concerning that we mentioned how the Father wills a thing, how the Father voices His intent through the Word and how the Spirit incubates the Word till it hatches into reality.
Then we found out from the scriptures that this partnership between the Father, the Word and the Spirit produced man, that we were made to a very particular specification; the image of God. So we know that we were created to be all that God is, have all that He has and do all that He does within the earth. We know this because He says we are made in His image and likeness, that we are gods and that we can do on earth what He does in heaven. Thy will be done on earth as it is done in heaven, since God has given the earth to the sons of men.
We did speak about the way a spiritual man gets physical results here on earth. We said he must first of all find out what the will of God is concerning what he wants to accomplish, then when he has found it he must make that will his own. By that he lets heaven know that earth is in agreement with God concerning that issue. Then he must go ahead and voice that will. He must pronounce it upon the earth. That means that the man must verbally announce Gods will, which he by faith has made his own.
We then began to talk about the right words and the proper way to announce Gods will on earth. That it must be done with words taught by Gods wisdom not words taught by mans wisdom, meaning that we must use words of faith that have been inspired by the word of God, instead of saying words that were born out of natural observation. It was from here on we began to lay a very necessary foundation, one that sounded like warnings.
Now, having laid that foundation, having made it clear that we must deny ourself and look to Christ in all our dealings in this matter, let us proceed. The issues we shall begin to visit from our next discussion are very practical things. These are things you can practice and get results. We shall do our best to lay them out in such a way that they will be very clear, so that we may read and run with them. It is time for us to begin to ask: “what shall we do for God?” and stop asking “what shall God do for us?” We shall not remain children of God forever. We must grow from children to sons, and then to fathers. The creation will not wait endlessly for the manifestation of the sons of God. Now is the time; your time.
O LORD COME SOON!
