Pursuing The Way

THE FATHER of Jesus Christ, is THE ONE who has united to HIMSELF in the closest bond of love and intimacy, made acquainted with HIS purposes, appointed to explain and carry out among men the plan of salvation, and made to share also in HIS own Divine nature.  This is Our Heavenly Father whom I speak of when I refer to the Sons and Daughters of GOD.  Consider these words closely.

Jesus spoke in John chapter 14:

1 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.

2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.

4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.”

5 Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?”

6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

7 “If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.”

Jesus established the one and only way to Our Heavenly Father in this passage.  It is of paramount importance for us to fully understand the brevity of these Words if we are to fully mature as Sons and Daughters.  You can spend a lot of time pursuing the “acts of GOD” and never know HIS ways.  Many have done this and have not drawn closer to Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Why spend time learning and memorizing the meaning of numbers in the Bible (numerology) if the study hasn’t brought you closer to the revelation of Love?  It makes you appear to be an expert in Scripture but it doesn’t change other people’s lives.  I made this mistake myself.  Yes, there are times when we should seek the meaning of a number as FATHER directs but we should not spend an inordinate amount of time simply to study a secondary topic for our own supposed benefit in order to impress others.

Pursue life and pursue Truth but pursue both by pursuing The Way.  Jesus Christ must be preeminent in our focus lest we miss the point of what the New Testament is all about.  Let us not simply be observers of The Kingdom coming forth in the earth, let us be a part of The Kingdom spreading over the earth.  How do we do this?  We become one with Christ and take on His attributes.

12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.

13 And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

14 If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.”

Are we to ask in the name of Abraham, Moses, Isaiah, or Jeremiah?  No, there is only one name, one way, and one Truth.  Let us keep this perspective in our daily prayers and study.  As it is written by THE SPIRIT in Hebrews chapter 12:

1 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,

2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
