One of the most attractive things to see is a man in uniform. Personally, I have come to realize that it’s not the uniform that I am attracted to, but the union that is attractive. The ability for all of them to come together as One, being many. Such a refreshing contrast from the division we see in the body of Christ today. Years ago I wrote an article called the Original WWW. Many of us are familiar with the term trinity. It is a word we use to explain how our God being one is still plural, yet one. As I shared with you in the above analogy this is what Yahushah was attempting to explain to His disciples concerning God. He and His father are One. If you have seen him, then you have seen the Father. (John 10:30; John 14:9-10) What is he saying exactly? He is saying that since he only does that which please the Father just as those who do the will of His father are the same as his mother, brother, and sister that they are in perfect harmony. (Matt. 12:50) As members of a band, as an orchestra in symphony, as soldiers in the service and yet like those examples every member being one band or one orchestra, or one army have different instruments they play or different positions they hold, but to complete one unified purpose. If we understand the role of each then we not only understand the triune nature of God, but also our role as husbands, wives, children, or as men and women.
Which is where the www comes in understanding that each member in God has a specific function. The Father wills it, the Son words it, and the Holy Spirit does the work. You will find this pattern consistently through scripture. The Father doesn’t do the will of the Son, the Holy Spirit doesn’t do the speaking, but the working. In fact it wasn’t until the Holy Spirit descended upon the Messiah that he began to do the miracles he did. The water into wine, the healings, the multiplication of loaves and the raising of the dead, all of these things take place after the baptism and the Holy Spirit descending upon him.
Why is this important to you? Families don’t function the way they should because we fail to reflect the image of the one who we belong to. We want the Father to do the will of the son, the mother to be the word of the son, and the Holy Spirit to have limited movement or range because it makes us uncomfortable when we can’t control the work He is called to do in our lives. A lack of order in the natural creates a lack of understanding of the Spiritual. Yahushah followed His father’s script and if we are going to be successful and walk in the plurality that Yahushah describes we have to do what he did, follow the script. He couldn’t marry someone because that was not in the script for him. He did what was in the script, and whatever we are doing if we are saying it is for God, we need to make sure that it is in the script for us. Operating outside of the script, and outside of His spirit no matter how good it sounds or looks can lead you outside the will of the Almighty. That is not a place you want to be found when it is all said and done. Thus, understanding the plurality of God as described in Genesis when Elohim said “let us make man…” (Gen. 1:26) has to do with God being a unified one, is this what we are endeavoring to do in our homes and our lives? Can a mother do things a father can do, this is not the question we ought to be asking, the question is should she? I can tell you no father can do what a mother can do, nor should he be expected to. If we make it our business to do what a man can do who will fulfill our role? Who will be the voice of femininity? If what we did had no value then why would God have created us? He could have stopped with Adam. Eve was God’s decision, and she was created for Adam’s good. The lack of appreciation for the work of the wife, and mother has lead to increase in auto-immune diseases, the increase in obesity, the increase of children being insecure in who they are and who they were intended to become because of the detours our absence creates. It opens the home to rape, incest, abuse, confusion, plain and simple the enemy. There are multiple ways the enemy can bind the strong man, but the bottom line is once you take him out the house the devil can do his work. A woman having to do the job of a man because a man is absent leads to unnecessary stress on both the parent and the child. Are there exceptions, yes, but exceptions are not the rule. In scripture we see the exceptions, Deborah was an exception, but you can count on one hand how many exceptions there were. But when the exception becomes the rule you create a paradox in society that offsets the balance and creates an atmosphere of chaos. I think we can all agree that we see the chaos in our midst. Let us however, endeavor to be that unified one speaking the same as our Father, and having the same mind, because we are fulfilling the same will, that is, the will of our Father.
I did a series on Matt 10:16 focusing on the characteristics of a serpent that we as believers should apply to our lives. Isn’t it interesting God didn’t say be ye as wise as Solomon, yet though he was given wisdom unlike any other man. Think about it, we are in the situation as humans that we are in because a serpent was able to deceive Eve. We need to tap into the wisdom of a serpent from a heavenly perspective, so that we would be able to defeat the enemy of our lives with the wisdom that God has made available in the earth. I am making it available as an e-book. This e-book will show you:
- How the characteristics of a serpent can translate into wisdom for a believer and how we should walk in that wisdom.
- How to understand how Spiritual principles can be extracted from getting a natural understanding of how God created the serpent.
- Often times we don’t get what we need in our walk with Christ because we don’t hask the right questions. The right questions in how we study can make a tremendous difference in its benefit for us. It is insightful in that it will ask questions at the end of each chapter so that you can reflect on them and gauge if you are using this wisdom in your life.
The e-book is currently in pre-production, but you can fill out the form below to let me know that you are interested in reserving a copy. The cost will be $5.00. I am making e-books to save on cost of printing. If you would prefer a hard copy please let me know as you submit me your contact information, if enough people are interested in a hard copy I will provide print on demand, but the cost will more than likely be more than $5.00.
