If the readiness is there, it is acceptable according to what a person has, not according to what he does not have…[1] for we are not only to do the work but also to desire to do it… and to now finish doing it as well, so that our readiness in desiring it may be matched by our completing it out of what we have ~

For we do not live – even live to never die, even live to never die in the full power of God – to make a good impression on others, but we are careful to put into action God’s saving work in our lives… for God is working in us giving us the desire to obey Him and the P/power to do what pleases Him… and to have a readiness according to what we have – a readiness to not only do the work but also to desire to do it and to finish doing it well… our readiness in our desiring of it matched perfectly by our completing it out of what we have… working towards the day when we are finally all that Jesus Christ saved us for and wants us to be.

For God was pleased to live in Christ and by Him reconciled everything to Himself – and we are complete through only our union with Christ Jesus who is the Lord over every ruler and authority in the all of the universe. For God shamed them publicly by His victory over them on the cross, forgiving all our sins and cancelling the record that contained the charges against us – Destroying it by nailing it to the cross of Christ, and it was in this way, this simple and yet complicated way, that God disarmed the evil rulers and authorities by forgiving all of which was held against us… with now our real life hidden with Christ in God and when Jesus, who is our real life, is revealed to the whole world, then we will share in all HIS glory as our real life given us by God in Jesus Christ has its full revelation.

And that full revelation will be seen in the full light of the all of His triumph ~

What He made possible for us and for Himself and for God… and how limitless He has made the exploring of our eternity for us… and how much further He has pushed the boundaries by which we can come to know the one true God in all of His forms and all of His desires… and how much further He has taken us into the full expanse of the unsearchable wisdom of God and into the realm of where everything is possible with God and for God.

The full knowledge of His victory and triumph… the luxury of ones who listen to hear what Jesus made possible… who listen to hear Him in the silence of His sufferings… listen to hear Him in the darkest hour of His life as a Man… as He wrought our salvation and then was rejected not only by men but also forsaken by God… It is to know what He did and said and thought in this place of His deepest darkness and despair… with a Father’s Ministry to His Son so acute and razor sharp that it would bring out of Him… out of One who was fully Man… and fully hated… fully persecuted… fully rejected… fully forsaken… it would bring out of Him the essence of His Father’s ministry to Him as He discipled Him with a discipline that would not only shatter Him… but bring to the surface the very core of His humanity… the very reason He was a Man… the very essence of the Man Jesus.

For our salvation is as unique as the One who gave it, and so is the working out of our salvation as unique as the One who is working it out ~

So when we grow weary and lose heart and find ourselves in pain and without readiness or desire, we should consider Jesus who suffered such opposition from sinful men and such forsaking by God, and go outside the camp and bear the reproach He endured… for here we have no lasting city, but we seek the city that is to come –

And if our undertaking or our plans for His arrival is found to be of men, it will fail and be destroyed… but if it is of God, it will not be able to be overthrown by men for they will be found opposing God… they will be found standing in opposition to God… even found to be God fighters, fighting against God as He rises to show us how deep is the love of God held in Christ… and how real is the humanity of Christ held so preciously in God… so much so that His heart pounds for His return unto Him – the One He sent to be of the flesh… how He aches for the Word to return to Him and the time of separation to be finished…

For as silent as a lamb He was led to the slaughter… for the power of God to save is not held in many words… but in the silence does the breakthrough come –

For Jesus displayed right to the end that He did not have on His mind the things of men even when He was a Man fully forsaken by God… but He held onto the things of God that He may not forsake God, even if God had forsaken Him… and so that He did not fall into the temptation of using the things of God – the power of God – the knowledge of God – to satisfy the will of a Man who had now on His mind the things of men… the things that are fading away… the things that would perish… perish and not see the light of the Empire of the Eternity of the Living God.

For as Jesus displayed that He did not have on His mind the things of men, but the things of God as He remained on that cross with His power held within Him… so God displayed that He did not have on His mind the things of Jesus who is God, but the things of Jesus who is Man… for that Man, Jesus, was about to fulfil His own will as Jesus the Man, and bring God and even Jesus who is God into a new dimension of perfection… and even into a new dimension of Their Eternal Empire.

The Father’s ministry to His Son moved Him into a place of where He would be who He was still yet to be.

For when we see Jesus the Man on the cross we see the Father… we see Him ready to reveal His most treasured possession… the Son of the Living God… The Man Jesus ~

Ready to reveal Him in the most profound and exclusive way –

The Father revealed His Son to the very core of His eternal existence in the very sight of sinful men… in the very sight of His enemies –

For in the sight of all, He stepped back and let the Man Jesus step forward ~

Jesus and everything held in Him of unsurpassable revelation ~

His unmatched courage and determination to finish the work – and to finish doing it well with a deep penetrating silence – and a fierce unrestrained determination held captive to an unkillable patient endurance so thick and tangible that it breathed the closeness of the age that was to come, and nothing could reduce Him to having on His mind the things of men when He had on His mind… even more so now, if that were possible… the things of God – For even if the things of God were that God had forsaken Him… it was still the things of God which kept from His mind the things of men…

And not to follow through on the plans of God, which have borne the burden of such opposition – of such despair and agony – of such monumental chartering of new frontiers of the living God, would never be a quality of the One who patiently endured, and by this, revealed the hidden quest of God who is Spirit – as the revelation of the hidden quest of Jesus who is flesh was found within Him… as He in the form of a Man, and making Himself not equal to God… brought man into His unlived frontier as the perfect and completed image of God in all of its aspects… in all of its design… in all of its manifestation… in all of its unrevealed glory… just as it was supposed to be before the throne of God.

God who stepped into the flesh and gave us the last Adam… then stepped into eternity without looking back, with those in Him held captive to the passion of God’s Christ, and held captive with a passion to God’s Son, Jesus the Man, Jesus the Lord of all.

Yes, we need the strength and courage of Jesus to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge so that we may be filled with all of the fullness of God. For there is no knowledge that will exceed that which is held in the love of Christ for it surpasses any knowledge that we have about Him… for what we know about Him will never be greater than knowing Him as His brothers and sisters and mothers should know Him.

They should know Him and believe in Him and not ask for signs and wonders and miracles to prove who He is… that they believe and ask to know Jesus Himself… for He is the sign and the wonder and the miracle God has already sent us and displayed before our eyes, and out from that should come the display of us turning ourselves from seeking God for His power to seeking the power of God for God… and for it to manifest in our life with such a natural ease… with such a true giving of ourselves over to the Man Jesus who was sent to lead us to Jesus who is God –

For the knowing of Jesus the Man must come before the knowing of Jesus who is God, otherwise we do not know Him… and He does not know us… for if we do not know Him in His humanity… humanity of which we are a part of, then we can never come to know Him in His divinity of which He is leading us into… but leading us into it through His human form… and through His human sufferings… and through all the things He accomplished as a Man ~

For His P/power in us – Jesus formed in us – is to be an outpouring of man dwelling with God through the fullness of the Person of Jesus Christ and what He accomplished for us… and then what He accomplished for us through His own personal search of God as a Man, even when He knew God as God knows God… to search as a Man who was at full power as God was at full power… to search as a Man who was nailed to a Roman cross and God still letting Him live… hour after hour… God still sparing Him from death… God still leading Him into His destiny of which only Jesus as fully Man could come into ~

His own search into the dark hours… into the darkness of being forsaken by God… His own search as to how He may have failed God… it was the ninth hour… He was alone, dying in darkness… no touch from anyone… His body going into full shutdown and He pushed through into God as a Man… and He found His destiny as that Man… found it deep within the work of salvation for all… For deep within the will of God, of which He fulfilled, was this unchartered frontier of Himself of which He was led into by the Father and the Holy Spirit.

And by His triumph comes the eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison. The weight so great… so revealing of what is held in the eternity that only by trials and persecutions and testings so hard are we prepared to come into it –

And the Holy Spirit’s elect will live to never die so as to be the fullness of what Jesus accomplished on that cross… its manifestation in men and women who are in the fullness of Christ so as to reveal to the world the all of the triumph of the cross of God’s Christ… the triumph of the cross of God’s Son Jesus, the Son of all men… and it will be seen in the face of those who are in the fullness of its power – in the fullness of the power of the knowledge of the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge – for then we will be filled with all of the fullness of God.

For the intenseness of the discipleship of Jesus by His Father took Him to a place of where He could be who He was still yet to be… and that had to come out of Jesus the Man forsaken by God… for God stepped back when His will was done to see the Man Jesus step forward and to have Him step into His will and let His will be done.

This was Jesus of Nazareth… a Carpenter by trade… a Saviour by destiny… who had done the will of God and who now God was allowing to fulfil His own will ~

The will of a Man at full power and at the full height and depth and width of the hardest of all teachings…

We never give up on this journey – this journey into the far depths of He who lived and died and He who now lives and never dies.

For the Holy Spirit, who God has placed within us and in whom we are baptised, jealously longs for us to be faithful, and gives us strength and power to stand against evil as He yearns over us and yearns for the Spirit to be welcome with a jealous love ~ The Spirit who will lead us into all T/truth… and into all of which is still to come…

For to us now – the Father is the Father we need Him to be… the Father He has to be to bring His Son to glory – and then many sons and daughters to glory through Him – Simply, He is the Father He has to be… and not always the Father He wants to be – had planned to be – had desired to be and was ready to be…

And the Father He had to be to Jesus, wanted to be to Jesus, brought Him into the place where Jesus would be who He was still yet to be… to bring Him into the all of every aspect of the Man He was born to be… not the God He was… but the Man He was to be, and is still to be in the eternity which He has torn in two with what He has pioneered for us and for God and for Himself.

For He was to be who He was to be… not only as the Third Person of the Godhead but as this Person who was Jesus the Son of all men… who was born of a woman and who was of the flesh and blood of the physical… who experienced the all of which men are vulnerable to and remained sinless… who from His own strength of purpose and from His own will to finish the work and finish it well… sought God and Himself sought as to why God may have forsaken Him for He asked God why He did not accuse Him… it was not an accusation but a question… He asked and sought and knocked on every door of the deep of the many rooms of His soul for the answer of what He may have not done… not for what God may have done to Him, but what He may have left undone unto God.

He did not accuse God but searched Himself as a Man who was sent to serve God, as the springs of the all of His humanness came forward and all of the things of men came rushing toward Him but only to collide with the things of God of which He still had on His mind – for if He had accused God… if He had become the accuser… the things of men would have filled His mind and be given over to manifestation with the release of His fullness of power – Power used then to satisfy the will of a Man who did not have on His mind now the things of God but the things of Himself

But now at this most crucial time, it was even more so that He had on His mind the things of God… the things of which may have lead God to forsake Him… and His determination of purpose to finish the job well set like flint within His shattered body… and His power was unleashed – but only within His mind and His heart and His soul and His spirit as He forged a forgiveness above all forgiveness… a righteousness above the righteousness of God… a peace that was deemed unbreakable… and the use of miraculous power not to ease His sufferings nor to vindicate Himself nor to satisfy the crowd who looked for a sign and a wonder and a miracle, for all of which was of the miraculous was all of which was this Person who was Jesus… and His fullness of power… the fullness of the power of His Being which had been perfected was released upon and into and unto His God and His Father…

The full power of the miraculous… that a Man continue to be sinless in a sinful world… that a Man fulfil the Law and Prophets and Psalms… that a Man fulfil perfectly the will of God… that a Man forsaken by God in His darkest, most powerful hour, would search the deepness of His own heart and soul and spirit and mind… clinging to the things of God and forging through darkness into the unknown… giving God an increase in His perfect Being which would take Him and all men who came through Jesus into where even God has never been before – because it did not exist before – it did not exist before Jesus the Man called it into existence by the whole state of His Being as it was at the ninth hour on the Cross at Calvary.

Such love the Father has for Jesus to be the all of who He is and the all of who He is still to be – so much love that it took all of His strength and all of His love for Him to bring Him to such a place of utter darkness and despair – such a place of such loneliness and forsakenness that the razor’s edge for Him was one that cut His body to pieces when He walked it for us… and cut His heart to pieces when He walked it for God…

Man taken to His supreme limit… no further could He have been taken in the depths of His humanity, even the depths of Godhood… but it was not His Godhood now which God was so focused on… it was His humanity, for that was what was going to bring all men into the fullness of the perfect Image of God and be as the blazing eternal lights of the Empire of the Eternity of the Living God –

It was Jesus the Man of flesh and blood and heart and desire and will and pain and love and who had needs in all of His humanness, needs that God pushed and made manifest in their greatest form… being pushed and stretched and taken to where no man has been… and only where the Man of Jesus can now take God… for God has never had a sinless Man to work with before… never had a righteous Man to take to the point of such perfecting of what was perfect before… He has never had a Man with such determination and endurance before to take to a breaking point… to take to a place where even God has not been before…

For God is Spirit and Jesus is flesh… and the Father entrusted to Jesus what Jesus would not know until the work was done and done well –

And the agony and the ecstasy of this place is that God the Father is watching to see Jesus break through this great unchartered, unlived frontier of the Living God, which is to be lived by God only when men have come into the glory of being the fullness of His Image down to the very last tie on their sandalled feet – With the Holy Spirit in silence as He watches with the Father… knowing that only Jesus can bring the Father into this territory of what He cannot live without His full Image being in Oneness with Him and His Eternity… Oneness which was forged by Jesus at the cross in the ninth hour – but the Father chose Jesus and the Holy Spirit prepared for Him a body… and even though it was the will now of Jesus… the Father and the Holy Spirit watched as the eternal Son gave illumination to the Empires of His Eternity… as He rose to finish the work even when He thought all of it done… but pushed further into God that if He was forsaken, then forsaken He was… and if He was to die to never rise again, then die to never rise again He would… but He would do it as a Man who never accused God of forsaking Him… but only asked why… that He may search Himself for where He may have let Him down and had ceased to serve Him completely… for if God had stepped out of the way at the peak of His suffering… at the height of His agony… at the completion of the work of salvation… then He would go the extra distance alone… no matter where it took Him… for if God had forsaken Him then there was no more He could lose… but perhaps more that God could gain out of His forsakenness of this Man on this Roman cross.

For it was not My will but Your will be done… but God’s will was done, and now it was the will of Jesus to be done… and by His own will, into His Father’s hands He committed His spirit… and it would be as it would be… and whatever it would be, God would be glorified.

For the agony and the ecstasy of this place, which brought His Father and His God into an unchartered, unlived territory… that of which the Father could not live without His full Image being in perfect Oneness with Him and His Eternity… as Jesus was in perfect Oneness with Him and His Eternity… Giving God an increase in His perfect Being which would take Him and all men who came through Jesus into where even God has never been before because it did not exist before… did not exist before Jesus pioneered it for men and for God…

So if the readiness is there, it is acceptable according to what a person has – not according to what he does not have… for we are not only to do the work but also to desire to do it… and to now finish doing it as well, so that our readiness in desiring it may be matched by our completing it out of what we have.

So let he who has ears hear what was unspoken in the silence of the Lamb being led to the slaughter.

And if you know nothing else… know that Jesus will never forsake you nor leave you even until the end of the age…

AMEN
