This is a continuum of my previous piece, The power In Order I
Anything that is eternal and founded on God must be predicated on the revelation of ‘Jesus who is the Christ and also the son of the living God.’ For further understanding of this, I would recommend my piece, “Is The Church Invincible?”
Jesus further said, “That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” Here we can see that a church is going to be built, this church isn’t a structure necessarily, Paul Wilbur in one of his songs said ‘majesty too great to dwell in temple made of stones; you have chosen hearts of flesh to make your glory known.’
Saying that Peter or the pope as we know today is the head of the church is very wrong, in my piece, “That They May Be One, John 17: 22, Feasibility”, I explicitly explained why it is erroneous. Please do good to make reference to the piece.
Here we see that a building will be ensured, and the foundation of this building will be the revelation that “Jesus Is The Christ, The Son Of The Living God” anything short of this standard CANNOT stand. In a building, the foundation has to be laid; the structure is raised from ground level to any height the owner and originator desires. Then we have the roofing, furnishing and other interior decorations. You see, a believer needs his life to firstly be founded on the revelation of Jesus being the Christ and also the son of the living God, then upon this, he is built till he attains unto maturity, God’s desire for us as believer is that we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ according to Eph. 4: 13. In order for this to be achieved, he gave unto the church what is popularly called the fivefold ministry, which are: apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers. All through creation after the fall of man, God diligently played along till he found an opportunity He could explore and sneak in the plan for redemption and the salvation of man, all this was process given and order driven.
The path of maturity isn’t transverse in a day or two; it takes time of walk with God. In my pieces “A Mature Person Attaining To The Measure Of Christ’s Full Stature (I)”, “A Mature Person Attaining To The Measure Of Christ’s Full Stature (II)”, I expounded on what spiritual maturity is and how we would know a spiritually mature believer.
Having attained to that point of maturity, which has always been the desire of the father, then the keys of the kingdom of heaven shall be given and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven:”
Keys are symbols of authority and when authority is given. We can truly bind and loose and it will be as the father has always desired.
It takes a level of alignment to be able to discern what is in the fathers heart so as to fully be his ambassador on earth, you see dear reader, the level to which our prayers will be powerful is premised on how yielded we are to the spirit of God and how aligned our will is to the will of the father. If we must see the true power of God’s word perform, then alignment isn’t a choice; God is king, as much a loving father as he is.
He is also The Lord of all. In my latest piece, “What Is The Blessing Of The Lord That Makes You Rich And He Adds No Sorrow To It? (I)”, I explained the need to have our will and desires aligned and yielded to the father if we must understand and see the best. When we do so, intercourse follows and humanity is traded for divinity, part of the divinity package is authority.
Moreover, it takes a man who is yielded to use authority appropriately and not against the set decree of the Monarch of the Universe. Until then, we will never know the word of God to be quick, powerful, sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Until then, the word of God will sometimes work for you like magic and remember that such is erroneous.
God is process given irrespective of how urgent the situation seems, and no process is void of order.
If the full power of God must be seen in manifestation, then his path must not only be known, but aligned to and diligently followed.
No patriarch of faith or any character in the bible who God used to do exploit skipped the path of process, and no process is void of order, God desires that we yield to his order, so that as it is in heaven, so shall it be in the earth.
Recall that the name is hallowed, then the kingdom comes and then the will follow by default. Yieldedness to a higher authority will make you a man of authority
The power to bind whatsoever and loose whatsoever is made available to every believer, but only those who understand and have their foundation built on the revelation of Jesus being the Christ and the son of God, then a building unto maturity is done, and has been handed the authority, only such believers whose hearts and will have been metamorphosised to be same as the fathers will see and experience the unlimited power of God in manifestation in all that pertains to them even as they embark on kingdom business and agenda.
Anything short of this will only pave a way for the devil to explore and exploit the impatient nature of the fallen man, which is to our detriment in the long run.
Always remember that the devil is never out for your good, not in any way. My piece “What Is The Blessing Of The Lord That Makes You Rich And He Adds No Sorrow To It (I)”, “What Is The Blessing Of The Lord That Makes You Rich And He Adds No Sorrow To It (II)”, What Is The Blessing Of The Lord That Makes You Rich And He Adds No Sorrow To It (III), and “What Is The Blessing Of The Lord That Makes You Rich And He Adds No Sorrow To It (IV)”, I did a good justice the subject.
If the goodness of our loving father and king must be enjoyed, then His order and process must be understood and followed, and his authority must be yielded to, may we find the grace to diligently yield so that we can be full partakers of his essence.
