The story of Jesus’ life is one of great thrill and beauty if a person has been endowed with the understanding to see it and can see Christ’s purpose and mission into this world. Jesus so often tried to express Himself in human utterance, but found that His creation was too dull of hearing. Have you ever asked yourself just what Jesus could have meant by this statement: Their ears are dull of hearing? Well, I’ve considered much the teachings of our Lord, and in essence, have learned that He had reference to their comprehension.
Paul the apostle spoke of this same thing in his writings, when he said that we should comprehend the height, width, and depth of God and His love. To comprehend love in the depth, width, length, or height is to comprehend God, for God is the Spirit of love. Full surrender to God’s love is completion in God; that is, you have become one with God.
To become weak while in prayer and fasting is to become endowed with the strength of God. There are three major strengths: God’s strength, angelic strength, and man’s strength. There are three minds: God’s mind, Satan’s mind, and man’s mind. Satan is a fallen angel.
Jesus said that according to a man’s faith, so be it unto him. He tried to express that He, Himself was the chief heir and had been endowed with power, or put in charge, of all the glory, majesty, and power of God, and that in return, He had exchanged places with believers by power of translation, and that they had become a member of the body and were commanded to complete the fullness of the stature. Well, to say the least, Jesus wanted us to know that His faith was in full command of God’s Spirit. We see here that God is the Spirit of power, love, peace, joy, strength, and eternal life.
By using our personal desire after it has been converted to the desire of God, God produces the Christian faith, which is called the faith of Christ. So then, our desire, which is the faith of Christ, or the desire of Christ to the fulfillment of His Father’s will, becomes the control and command of God’s Spirit to a performance in behalf of humanity or humanity’s needs. God’s desire is to translate our faith into Christ’s faith, which is God’s faith, that our faith may command Him (God, the Spirit) to perform concerning the work of His hand, which means God’s desire.
God, Himself (Jesus Christ) made Himself a body of many members. Jesus is the head and we are the many members of that great body. Now, this great body has no boundaries or limitations in life. It must command and control all heaven and earth. We can see by this that God, through foreknowledge, has given all power in heaven and earth into the mind and members of the body (the church, which is Christ’s body). This is why Christ said, in the days of His ministry, that all things are possible, and that you can do all things if you are one of the Christian believers. In other words, you are no longer limited to anything, but are now in control of heaven and earth.
To rule, we must be processed from our born again experience, as a babe in Christ, to the fullness of the stature of the body and to the knowledge of the full stature or full mind of Christ Jesus. Remember, God is revealed in part, for we know in part; or that is to say, we seek to surrender to each part that is revealed. The power and anointing is given proportionately through this development, so it is up to us as to how much power we receive, which comes through divine perception. The bride of Christ, which is the many-membered body to its head, will mature to fullness or completion (oneness with the Word), for the bride is one with her husband, bone of His bone and flesh of His flesh, but the church world will be as children, incomplete in knowledge, and will not make the rapture or translation, but will go into the tribulation, for children learn obedience by chastisement or by the things that they suffer. You are complete, according to that which has been revealed, if you walk in all of it, conformed to the faith of Christ for the rapture.
When I discovered these great truths, after many years of waiting on God and listening to His voice, I said, “At long last, God, I have discovered the fullness of the stature,” and when I went to sleep, He showed me in a vision or dream by night that I had discovered it. It is the fullness of the Revelation of Jesus Christ. I have the burning desire to see this made manifest in the church or body of Christ, for I know, this having been revealed, that the end of the world is here, and nothing can be left except the rapture.
May God bless you and give you understanding in all things.
