THIS MOVE OF GOD IN US
BY: LINDA KEITH
AUGUST 19, 2005
Bless Father’s Holy Name. Folks, we truly are in a holy time. Although the move that Father is making today, is not new to Father, to us it is indeed new.
There seems to be a “restlessness” and a “confusion” in the more mature part of the Body of Christ. And I might say, probably in the moves that we have already been brought through, but others are entering those moves now. I am not sure that the words, “restlessness” and “confusion” are the correct words to use, but, as I am not sure what words would describe what is taking place, so for now, I am using these two words.
I have received quite a few emails; gotten letters, and talked to several folks on the phone, and all are speaking the same words. With every “new” move of Father, there is always a “wondering” and “searching” feeling about what is happening. We have wondered, “is this Father?” and “wonder if I should ask Pastor So and So?”. No one wants to get caught up in anything that is not part of Father’s Plan. Of course, as we matured, we learned to depend on Father to show us and explain to us what is taking place.
Today is the day when manifestation is taking place in many. We have been told by some, who has not received the same revelations that we have received, or has chosen to not receive, that we are all incorrect. But, as usual, our dependence must be in Father.
I had one sister email me and told me that although she did not understand one thing about what is being given to her, by the Spirit that she just has to KNOW that Father will enlighten her about it. And truly, that is what all must do.
I, personally, do not like the “titles” that people take on or are given by others, of the Body of Christ. There are said to be; the Pentecost group; the Sonship group; the manifested Sons group; the finished works group and on and on and on. We ARE A BODY. Not a group of bodies. We ARE GOD’S BODY on earth. Plain and simple.
The move that Father is making today is the KNOWING HIM and the KNOWING OF WHO WE ARE. We all say, “oh, I’ve known Father for 40, 50, 60 years”. But, if they only knew, they haven’t even chipped any of the peak of the iceberg as of yet! We have been so filled with religion, that even the most mature, STILL are carrying around some of it. We have taken the things and THE PEOPLE that Father has placed in our lives, FOR A TIME, and made idols out of them. And as usual, whenever Father begins taking some of the religion from us, there is always some who swear up and down that WE are trying to take God’s place.
I use to allow these people to get on my last nerve, but, thank God, He has shown me a better way. They no longer bother me. It is the Body of Christ that I am concerned with. Wherever they might be in Father’s Plan. There are those who STILL want to CONTROL how and what we believe. They preach the same things that they’ve taught for 30, 40, 50 years, and IF someone follows the revelations that Father gives, INSTEAD of following their same old teachings, they come against you with their many, knowledgeable words. And that’s ok. Father said, “MY sheep KNOW MY voice and another they will NOT follow.”
Father has been revealing things that go against what we were taught in the past. Of course, it was just a lesson in maturing. We are told, “Nothing under the son is new”, and Father shows us daily how true this is. To Father, all is finished. To us, we are learning and walking into this truth. Each of us in our own rank and order.
What I want to discuss here, is what some are going through. These are mature folks who have walked in Father and Him in them for years. MANY have said, “You know, I’m tired of this stuff; not seeing myself as I should be”. They love Father and I believe, are experiencing “the gitters”. You know, how when you were about to be moved out of Pentecost and into a deeper revelation and way of living and believing? There was an excitement and yet there was a “restlessness”. We wanted what lay ahead of our natural eyes, but, it was like, “am I sure this is what Father wants?” But, then after we calmed down, and just said to ourselves, “Look, my dependence has been in Father, this far, so this is who I have to continue to depend on.” Then, when the elevation was made, we look back and laugh about how nervous we were for a brief time. Father is good, and He’s dependable!!
There is a “new” learning, or a higher, elevated revelation that Father is showing some. It is in regards to the flesh man, Jesus. There are those who are trying to walk in the finished works (seriously, and lovingly) and yet without even realizing it, they are serving TWO GODS; Father God, our creator, and Jesus the Son. We cannot do it. It won’t work. God IS, WAS and WILL ALWAYS BE , ALL IN ALL, and that includes the flesh man Jesus. GOD manifested in the flesh, as the flesh man Jesus. I like the way it is said in the Living Bible.
Philippians 2:5-8, “Your attitude should be the kind that was shown us by Jesus Christ, who, THOUGH HE WAS GOD did not demand and cling to his rights AS GOD, but laid aside his mighty power and glory, TAKING THE DISGUISE of a slave and becoming like man”.
Even the prophecy regarding the birth of Jesus, the man, makes it clear Who He was.
ISAIAH 9:6, “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder; and his name shall be called THE MIGHTY GOD, THE EVERLASTING FATHER, the Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth ever forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.”
Jesus was the Soul of God our Father. It is the woman who feeds, cuddles, and is the caregiver. So it was with Jesus. He fed all, WHAT HE RECEIVE FROM GOD OUR FATHER. The soul represents the feminine part of EACH OF US, so it was with Jesus, the flesh man. Jesus, Himself, told us many times that there was a time for HIS REIGN to come to a close and return to being Who He had been from the beginning. FATHER.
Now, I will say this, for those who cannot accept this truth now, you may as well stop reading, now. This is for those who are receiving a revelation of WHO REALLY FATHER is and has always been. This is not taking nothing from Jesus, because GOD WAS JESUS in the form of a man, while on earth. NOW, Father is a many-membered BODY ON EARTH!! Some will walk into Fatherhood, some won’t.
LUKE 22:37, “For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me. And he was reckoned among the transgressors; for the things concerning me have an end.”
Now here, Jesus is talking to His disciples, about being crucified. Which was THE GOAL for God becoming the flesh man, Jesus. God’s goal, His Plan was to come as a flesh man and that flesh dying so the Holy Spirit could reign in each person. This goal was met, as the man Jesus, went to the cross.
JOHN 18:37, “Pilate therefore said unto him, (Jesus), Art thou a king then Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth.”
To this END.
Revelation 22:13, “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.”
For the scriptures in Luke and John, let’s look at that word “end”. It means: to set out for a definite point or goal; the point aimed at as a limit; the conclusion of an act or state (termination); purpose.
Now, we see in Jesus’ own words, there was a purpose and a goal that was to be reached, and HE DID IT. Now, understand, this DOES NOT MEAN THAT IT WAS THE END OF JESUS. Jesus, who was God FIRST, when He completed the goal set for the Son to do, He simply returned to being God. The glory is STILL all of Jesus’, who was GOD DISGUISED as a man. Do new babes still need to learn about Jesus? Absolutely. They have to see THE PATTERN SON, so that they can walk into the knowing that they are God’s Sons. But, as these Sons progress into the understanding of Father’s revelations, they must also come into TRULY KNOWING THEIR FATHER and the TRUTH that there is ONLY ONE GOD AND FATHER. People can make it sound as religious as they want, but, to still believe that Jesus and God were two separate or different people are seeing double mindedly.
It cannot be as some, even in the “finished works” group believe, that it is “us AND Jesus” or “us AND God”. God IS ALL IN ALL. Folks, think about it, ALL MEANS ALL! Father IS NOT A PART OF YOU, He IS ALL OF YOU. Anything that you cannot see AS GOD, in you, is an illusion of the carnal mind. STILL, they are asking for healings, doesn’t He tell us that we HAVE IT? We can’t think as US, and CLAIM to be Who we SAY we are. ALL that you cannot see as God, must be dumped!
Now, I know that there are the “scholars” who will tell you, “WHAT”S WRONG WITH YOU? YOU HAVE NO PART IN THIS< IT IS ALL GOD!” And guess what, they are right. They don’t know it, but, they are right. They are seeing their words one way, but GOD IS ALL IN ALL, so that means YOU DO HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE DUMPING!! YOU are a part of the ALL!!
Even IF we do not understand it all right now, the ONLY THING we can do is to KNOW that GOD DOES NOT LIE!! And He doesn’t play this cruel little joke of telling you that you are all that He is, and then, tell you, “just kidding, you have to go to heaven to be this”. Because you know what? You ARE IN HEAVEN RIGHT NOW!! As long as our focus is on Him, and we know Who we are, we are in heaven and have been ever since “the Lamb was slain BEFORE the creation of the world”. Think about it, He fixed it so that when the woman part of us started thinking with the carnal mind, we had ALREADY FALLEN INTO THE PREPARED ATONEMENT! Praise our wonderful One!
Let NO MAN’S words of condemnation come upon you. Brush it off, knowing that these dear ones have not or will not receive what Father is NOW saying. It is His PRESENT TRUTH!! Be established in it. Just be as you are led to be, it will all manifest outwardly. Let no one tell you not to teach. They suggest that we stop teaching, and yet they go right on holding meetings. What for? Believe there is a lot more to learn and to teach. You are the Saviors from Mount Zion. And the word “Saviors” means the same thing it meant when Jesus is called Savior.
It’s NOT, you AND God, it is ALL God. It is NOT you AND Jesus. Jesus is God our Father and ALL IN ALL.
For those of you who were with me, back in 1999, remember the Word that Father spoke to me on New Years. He said, “The time is come that ALL that I show you will not be able to be proven by the Written Word”. ONLY I can do the proving.”
His thoughts are manifesting as our thoughts. Things have changed. Thank God we are wakening up to the mysteries that have been hidden since the foundation of the world.
Allow the mind of Christ, which is Father’s mind, do the thinking. Let man do as they will. Let them say what they will. Be yourself, HIM. Take the “AND” out of it and be ONE with HIM. Understanding is here, we just have to accept it. The restlessness will pass. Clarity is here, we just have to see through the single eye instead of the two natural eyes. Hold on, it’s here. Expect things that is different from the norm. When you start to see people “who aren’t here”, know that you are beginning to see in BOTH REALMS, the natural and the spiritual. Let the “scholars” say what they will, just keep your focus.
