JESUS AND THE REVOLUTION! - Entry Twenty Eight
Updated: Sep 2, 2019
The Magnitude of Eternal Purpose
So what about the eternal purpose that God has written into the code of the universe? Do we understand it? Do we actually get it and is our faith, which is a gift from God, stretch out by our conscious agreement to encompass the full magnitude for which it has been given?
We learn from the ancient writings that vision, meaning what and how we see the future and ourselves within it, are critical to creation molding itself in harmony with the Holy Spirit activations that are calling out to us on the inside. As Jesus, the Son of God teaches us, "According to YOUR FAITH, even so will it be to you" (see Matthew 9:29).
The awareness of eternal purpose was at the life pivot point undergirding the clear perceptions of the apostles of Jesus. Listen to the apostle Paul addressing the eternal purpose with his usual flair and style;
"To me, who is less than the very least of all those who have set themselves apart exclusively for divine use, has this honor, this kindness and empowerment been given as a precious gift to me, that I should express outwardly among all the Gentile nations the vast and never ending, incomprehensible to mere human earthbound understanding, immeasurable and inexhaustible wealth and riches of Christ.
And to carry forward this shining enlightenment so that all men everywhere might see what is meant to be their own embodied communion with this mystery, which from the beginning of the world has been hidden, secreted away from the prying eyes of others so as not to be seen, hidden deeply within God who founded a place of habitation like a city, like an island or a region (a spiritual geography), a place set aside for the sole purposes that we find surrounding Jesus Christ.
And this is the very intention of it all, that now, in this present time, in these days and in these moments that have come, directed purposefully in the direction of the principalities and powers currently occupying positions within the heavenly (spirit) realm, that it might be made clearly manifested and known to them by means of the direct effects surrounding the ones who have been called and have separated themselves to the divine intent, (those persons called ekklesia - they who echo the voice and image of God), that the multi-faceted and multi-dimensional wisdom of God might be alive and active and completely functional in them, all of this being in absolute and perfect accord with the full eternal purpose which He ever purposed in Christ, who is Jesus, who is our own Lord (our leader, teacher and guide), in whom we also now have great boldness and total access with absolute confidence founded entirely upon his own same faith" (Ephesians 3:8-12).
What Is Man?
There is an eternal and a grand purpose and mankind is right in the middle of this street. But you've really got to wonder, why is humankind even a part of this? What is this faulty, frail, fraught with folly creature to whom God continues to pay so much of His attention? If I were the one rolling the dice, I would have asked for a new pair a long time ago because mankind if anything has proven one thing over and over again, he/she does not have the capacity to handle the task we've been given, but then maybe the beauty of it all is to be found in that very thing, for we cannot do it apart from our own direct infusion infusion with the great force and living power that is God.
Listen to the Psalmist King David, under the anointing of the Holy Spirit as he proffers this same question to God - "What is man?";
"Oh LORD, our Lord, how majestic, gallant and glorious is Your name (power, rank, being) in the whole measure of the entire earth!
You are the One who has established and shined forth Your splendor which is far above the height of the highest of all the heavens! Yet You have appointed that out of the mouth of the little boys and the little girls, like those who yet hungrily nurse like tiny infants in their sustaining dependence upon their mothers breasts, that here, right here, is laid the foundation of power, and this is because of the enemies that would oppress, and this is so You might put an end to the foe (the opposing destroyer), and apply Your own vengeance upon them.
When I observe the visions rooted in the heights of Your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars and their arrangement, what is man that You hold him in Your thoughts or the offspring of man that You constantly visit him, overseeing and caring for him so deeply?
He is little, in fact he is very small, and he appears to be very much lacking and diminished in comparison to angels, and yet You have crowned him and encircled him with the rich weight of Your own glory and have placed upon him incredible honor.
You made him the ruler over the works of Your hands, You have put all things under his feet. All sheep, all oxen, yes and the beasts of the field, the fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea and anything that passes through the pathways that are within the seas.
Oh LORD, our Lord, how majestic, gallant and glorious is Your name (power, rank, being) in the whole measure of all the earth!" (Psalm 8).
If you are human, the eternal purpose is YOUR purpose and a grand one it is.
How far have you stretched your faith? Is it stretching as far as the eternal purpose?
Are you beginning to get the picture? Are you beginning to see the significance God in His creation of you, places upon you within the divine order of all things?
Are you beginning to believe it?
