The Integrity Of The Word: Part 2

Why pray if FATHER has predetermined every event on earth?

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Ephesians chapter 3:

14 So I kneel humbly in awe before the Father of our Lord Jesus, the Messiah, 15 the Perfect Father of every father and child in Heaven and on the earth. 16 And I pray that HE would unveil within you the unlimited riches of HIS Glory and favor until supernatural strength floods your innermost being with HIS Divine might and explosive power.

Paul received his revelation by direct revelation from Jesus Christ when he was taken up to Heaven.  Our walk on this earth has conditions that we individually control and have accountability attached to our personal decisions and actions.  We are not robots of Our Loving Heavenly Father.  Our life on earth has not been predetermined where we have no choice of what path we take. However, FATHER did express HIS Intent for our lives which are revealed in our books written in Heaven.  IT IS OUR CHOICE!  FATHER wants us to have an ongoing relationship with us through prayer and guidance by The Holy Spirit.

17 Then, by constantly using your faith, the life of Christ will be released deep inside you, and the resting place of His Love will become the very source and root of your life.

We have the responsibility to walk in faith.  Jesus expressed His disappointment toward people who had no faith or little faith.  You and I decide if we are going to grow in faith thus it is not predetermined where we have no choice in the matter.  If that were the case, Jesus would not have expressed any comments about the issue of faith.

18–19 Then you will be empowered to discover what every Holy one experiences—the great magnitude of the astonishing Love of Christ in all Its dimensions. How deeply intimate and far-reaching is His Love! How enduring and inclusive It is! Endless Love beyond measurement that transcends our understanding—this extravagant Love pours into you until you are filled to overflowing with the fullness of God!

Love is greater than our knowledge and understanding.  If you want to experience the overflowing fullness of God, you must focus on Agape Love first.

20 Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. HE will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for His miraculous power constantly energizes you.

Doubt can and will hinder FATHER’S mighty power which is intended to work in us.  FATHER will not override your decision to doubt.  You and I are responsible for our future here on earth.  We have the option to reject The Truth and walk according to the world.  We have the option to place ourselves among either the wheat or the tares, the sheep or the goats, the five wise virgins or the five unwise virgins.  As for me and my household, we will serve THE LORD.  FATHER will not supersede your decision concerning who you will serve. 

Don’t think that you can rationalize away your accountability be claiming you have no choice because of thinking that GOD’S sovereignty has not accounted for choice.  GOD limited HIMSELF to allow us to have personal choice in the matter.  This is what Love does for It does not demand your submission as though you are a slave forever.  Those who promote any other doctrine do not have a revelation of Agape Love nor do they seek to know HIS Love which is greater than man’s capacity to fully understand it.  One primary attribute of Agape Love is integrity!

The Holy Spirit wrote in Psalm 89:

29 For I have decreed that he (David) will always have an heir—

    a dynasty that will release the days of Heaven on earth.

30–32 But if his children turn from Me and forsake My Words,

    refusing to walk in My Truth, renouncing and violating My laws,

    then I will surely punish them for their sins

    with My stern discipline until they regret it.

FATHER makes it abundantly clear that men have a choice to refuse HIS Truth and violate HIS Laws.  Their actions result in punishment and discipline because of HIS integrity.

33 But I will never, no never, lift my faithful Love from off their lives.

    My kindness will prevail and I will never disown them.

However, Love will continue to prevail even when their choices move them away from HIM.  They can repent at any time and no longer be adversaries of FATHER.  Love will restore them if they choose to turn from their wicked ways.

34–35 How could I revoke My Covenant of Love that I promised David?

    For I have given him My Word, My Holy, irrevocable Word.

    How could I lie to my Loving servant David?

FATHER’S Word is irrevocable, unchanging.  Any failures are not due to HIM, the responsibility lies with each of us to choose our path.  There are conditions which must be met for us to pursue life rather than death.

36–37 Sons of David will continue to reign on his throne,

    and their kingdom will endure as long as the sun is in the sky.

    This covenant will be an unbreakable promise that

    I have established for all time.”

FATHER’S Word is an unbreakable promise on HIS part.  We can either accept or reject HIS various promises.  It is our choice.

The Holy Spirit wrote in Psalm 115:

16 The heavens belong to our God; they are HIS alone,

    but HE has given us the earth and put us in charge.

By HIS integrity, HE placed us in charge of the earth and will not go against HIS own Word.  It is up to us to establish Heaven on earth, not HIM.  You will either be for HIM or against HIM and HIS Covenant established on HIS integrity.
