Everything originates in the sovereignty of God. He is the source of everything.
1 ¶ In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 He was in the beginning with God.
3 All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.
Christianity relates passively to God. It acknowledges all things coming from His hand, both things in the heavens and the things upon the earth. But this is where Christianity’s faith stops. There is another step into the kingdom we must take. We must enter into God’s sovereignty and become channels of that sovereignty. It is not enough that we do the will of God. We must become the will of God. This takes things to a whole new level. Christianity speaks of being in the perfect will of God. Being in His perfect will is contrasted with being in His good or acceptable will. This has been a noble endeavor throughout the church age. “Let us attain to the perfect will of God.” But as we come to Zion, the realm of sons, it is not enough to “attain” to His perfect will. We must become it. To become His will is to see all of God’s creativity expressed through us. He will create through us. There is an important distinction to be made here. This does not mean we make things up as we go along and call them God. This is why this message began with the emphasis that God is the source of everything. We are to come to a level of maturity as sons where we are participating with Him because we are inseparable in our spirits from His word. We do not hear such a message as this, pray over it, and then claim it. It is the sum total of God’s work in us. This is the bringing, as in present tense, many sons to glory (Heb. 2:10). As we embrace the word of the kingdom that is coming, it creates in us the oneness with God that is necessary to see an age change. There is no hypothetical Bible thumping in this realm. His word must become a living reality in our spirits. Continue reading
