It may interest you to note that the persons of the Godhead have always dwelt in an abode from a beginning that had no beginning, but sometime in eternity they agreed to prepare man to make it to a prepared place. They prudently considered the implication of the foundation for this project which would be laid over centuries. They knew that the completion and furnishing of their temple in each soul would cost them an enormous amount of longsuffering. They ratified their accord with an oath and pledged that a generation of men would see God’s secrets demystified. The father of good light and perfect light was refreshed to know that a generation of men who were once subject to vanity would overcome death and attain His rest. (Jn. 1:1/Rev. 10:7c/Jam. 1:7/Heb. 4:1-9)
Jn. 14:2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would
have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am (i.e. in the father), there ye may be also.
The father kept consulting with the person of The Word, who under the auspices of the Holy Spirit would set out on an adventure to save and raise man into an estate where he would become a fellow of eternal life. To guarantee the destruction of the only enemy God had in common with men, The Word had to agree to be stripped of all His power and glory, and take the likeness of sinful flesh. The father raised the Son with His ways, crowned him seasonally with glory and honor and through him, consecrated The New and Living Way in Jesus Christ (The Way); so that man’s journey back to his original eternal dwelling place – The Father (The Place), would be guaranteed. (1Jn. 1:1-3/Ps. 90:1-2/Heb. 10:20)
Man’s sole response to God’s gracious outreach was to diligently make his calling and election sure ! Man had been given no alternative but to cross over from being the least among God’s creature into being great in the realm of the creator. Man was given a lifetime blank cheque to learn what Jesus learnt from his father over a period of three decades. Man would thereby learn righteousness, unlearning his ways, experience reconciliations and justifications in the Spirit and then partake of God’s glory after attaining a soul-state where he can permanently love what the Son loved (Righteousness)!
A generation of saints that would cross from THE HOLY PLACE into THE MOST HOLY PLACE; from KINGSHIP into PRIESTHOOD; from THE SON into THE FATHER are therefore being born in AD 2015! They are keeping their appointments with all the feasts that will make them delightfully come under God and carry him. Their sole quest is to glory only in the cross of Christ. They know they are being left without an excuse and they must keep acknowledging the Father and Son until they can give a clear interpretation of His eternal power and Godhead. DOES THIS DESCRIBE YOU?
