The Consciousness of the Father

Text: I Corinthians 15:24-28

A father represents order and authority; the devil is attacking fatherhood, and this has caused the scarcity of fathers in society, but God is revealing himself as a father again.

Jesus is the way to the Father, and he primarily came to reveal God to us as the Father. 

I Peter 3:18, I John 2:13.

The ministry of Jesus may be summarized in four ways:

  1. He came to reveal the father; in Jesus, the father was made manifest, and he was proximate
  2. He reconciled all things back to God. (II Corinthians 5:18). Man can be evil when he is subscribed to the devil, and can be divine when he is subscribed to God.
  3. He came to throw down all the workings of the enemy
  4. He will re-center all things in the Father. (Romans 11:36).

God’s proper position is that he is first, God does not always act in response to man or his circumstances, God is sovereign; he is the first cause of all things. God wants us to see him in everything; nothing exists outside of him.

The meaning of God is that he is the creator of all things and the sustainer of all things; he is the source and sustainer. Jesus is more than just a savior, he is meant to be our salvation too. 

God is at work in your life, working out holiness. Philippians 2:13.

One of the greatest things that can happen to man is to discover his connection to God; hence, the need to wait on God. This is the only rational thing to do, knowing that our lives depend on him.

The Father must be the light and the life of all things. The proper position is to know that all things depend on God.

God is raising truth while Satan is spreading falsehood all around and this has crept into the church. Jesus came to restore all things to the truth of their nature. 

In these end times, end time truths must be taught to ensure that God’s people are thoroughly equipped for the days ahead.

There’s been more noise with little or no substance in the church in recent times, and this has to come to an end.

There’s a protocol for receiving things from God, and it is asking (Matthew 7:7). 

The root of things is not beneath the earth but above (Matthew 18: 18-20)

We need to bring the world its Father again and only the Son can bring the Father. That is the essence of sonship.

The Holy Spirit is the spirit of truth, and his work is to guide us into all truth. If we are truly under his government, as the years go by, more truth should be seen in our lives and more truth should be revealed through our lives.

The truth is not a “what,” it is a “who.” The truth is a person. The truth of all things is to center on the father. 

What hinders the father from doing his work in our lives:

  1. We will not let him
  2. Our self effort

We must learn not to disregard God’s leadings and promptings. We must let go of religion and allow the Holy Spirit (the ever leading and ever present one) to lead us; this is true spirituality.

The battle is the battle of truth. 

God is always faithful. Your program is too small to have God hide from you

God depends on the faith of man to do things on the earth, without faith nothing will move. God demands faith from us as men to carry out his purposes on the earth.

If God has given you a word, wait for it; the vision is for an appointed time.

God is in your life, do not look for him everywhere else but within.
