Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you (I with you am (present tense) alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
The fullness of the essence of God in Christ as “I AM” is always found in the present and immediate tense. God supersedes the dimension of time.
As with faith, in ministry, God’s power will not be sent to us in the future. His healing will not take place in the future. His fire will not be poured out upon us in the future. At the moment that He reveals that these things are for us in a ministry situation they are forevermore and immediately there. The “I” of Jesus is presently always with us in the am of time.
Mark 14:62 And Jesus said, I am (I am (present tense): and ye shall see the Son of man sitting(continually and constantly ruling and reigning….) On (Christ’s energy/ fuel source is power; the world in which Christ operatesis God’s power; andGod’s power does the work through Christ) the right hand of power, and coming(continually and constantly) in the clouds of heaven.
· As we live and minister in the timeless dimension of the immediacy of Christ’s continual “I AM ness”, His presence is always coming and is constantly present, in the sphere of God’s power.
· His “I” always come sin the AM of time rooted in God’s power, continual ruling. and reigning.
John 8:42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came (Defined as :”Arrival” Christ is in a present and continuing and continual state of arrival ) from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
· “Came” – This uncommon word describes to come in its dimension of arriving or arrival. Christ has arrived from God into our world, or more correctly because it is in the present tense, Christ is in a continuing state of arrival, confirming the timeless immediacy of the continual now of His presence. It is imperative that we ask God to deliver us into His world of the dimensionless ness of time. As long as see God as doing things for us in the future we will never work in miracles.
John 8:58 (AV) Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
In the am of time Jesus always is in the mode of I
John 10:30 I and my Father are one. (Present tense).
Greek: “I and the Father one are” A perfect and continuous exchange of location in the father and the instrumentality of the father’s works back through Jesus.
· The “I” and the “Father” are one in the same
John 10:38 But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.
· Greek: That in THE ME the Father just as I am Him
· The I being in Jesus allows complete accessibility for all that Jesus has. Jesus now in this I allows for full effectiveness of His power and so forth.
John 14:7 (AV) If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
· From now on you know Him progressively and have seen Him with perfect discernment
9 (AV) Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
· The one perfectly discerning me, perfectly has discerned the Father
John 14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in(Locative- in the world of) me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth (present participle- the continuing abiding in the world of the Spirit; necessary to produce miracles) in me, he doeth(Present tense- the father performs the miracles in proportion to our abiding in the world of the Spirit) the works.
We have the timeless immediacy of faith at our disposal, as well as the continual and timeless immediacy of Jesus’ presence. However, the continual and timeless immediacy of Jesus’ presence is also with the Father at the same moment that it with us. This guarantees the absolute effectiveness of our ministry, in that it is the Father who originates, energizes, produces and executes the works through Jesus. Christ’s presence with us in its timeless immediacy generates the works of the Father in their absolute perfection and effectiveness through us. This is because His presence is also in the timeless and continual fellowship with the Father.
The “I” in the Father allowing for access of all that our position in Christ has attained to.
The Father in ME is the I allowing for total effectiveness.
The Father which is now the ME does the works in the ME
· Greek: The Father in or inside of “ME”, is.
John 14:20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.
Greek: I in my Father, and you in me and I in you.
· Jesus now teaches us that the believer lives with the Father and the Son in the same perfect exchange of location and instrumentality as the Father and the Son themselves enjoy. This is because Jesus lives in the world of the Father so that the Father simultaneously executes His works back through Jesus.
· Now we also see that the believer has been placed in the world of Jesus so that Jesus can instrumentally work back His works through the believer. In reality God works through Jesus and back into us because we are in the world of Jesus and Jesus is in the world of the Father. The believer is God’s channel for God to take the invisible works of His kingdom and manifest them into them through Jesus and then visibly through them into the world order. The exact and same ability to do miracles just as Jesus did dwells in us.
John 16:28 I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: (I have come into the world system Perfect Tense) again, I leave (I am constantly and continually releasing the world system) the world, and go (I am constantly and continually journeying to constantly and continually fellowship with the father) to the Father.
· The perfect tense describes an event that has been accomplished and fully carried out in the past, but that its occurrence has an influence and an impact for us now and eternally forevermore. Jesus coming onto our world system is described in the perfect tense. His coming and presence for us is therefore in the timeless immediacy of the continual now. At the very same moment that Jesus is timelessly and immediately here.
He is timelessly and immediately releasing Himself from the world system to timelessly and immediately fellowship with the Father.
John 17:11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, which they may be one, as we are.
Greek: In order that they may be one (Present Subjunctive) in exactly the same way as us.
· As the Son lives continuously from moment to moment in the world of the Father, the Father superimposes back upon those very same moments His works back through the Son. We must remember the timeless immediacy of the continual now in the workings of God.
In Jesus priestly prayer in John 17, He asks of the Father that the believers could work in exactly this very same fashion. The present subjunctive tense is one that emphasizes the will of the person. In other words the believer is not guaranteed that automatically he or she will operate in the timeless immediacy of continually dwelling in the world of God so that God can continually work His works back through them.
Though positionally this is the true for every believer, the manifested reality of God from moment to moment flowing in His works back through the believer can only come as the believer out of his or her will dwells in the world of God from moment to moment.
· To abide in Jesus is the same as living from moment to moment in the world of Jesus.
John 17:21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
Greek: that the may be one (Present Subjunctive) in exactly the same way that you Father in me, and I in you.
· The prayer of Jesus is that the believer will from moment to moment live in the world of the Spirit so that the same perfect exchange of location in God and God instrumentality working His works back through them exactly as Jesus has with the Father, can take place in the believer. The believer has the same ability to work the works of Jesus to the degree that he or she lives as closely and dependent as Jesus lives in the world of the Father.
22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
Greek: That the may be one (Present Subjunctive) in exactly the same way that we one are (Present)
John 17:23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
· Greek: I in them, and you in me, that they may become matured and completed into the same finished product manifesting our exact oneness; so that the world system might from moment to moment learn and know that you sent me into it with a mission, and that mission being that you loved them in exactly the same way that you loved me.
· To the degree that every believer operates from moment to moment in the world of God of God so that God can simultaneously and from moment to moment work back through the believer will be the same degree that the church will become matured and completed in the oneness that the Father and the Son have. This oneness as we have learned is the perfect exchange of Jesus being located in God and God instrumentality working His works back through Him. As the church operates in this oneness with God, He then has absolute liberty to work His miracles in His church, revealing Jesus and His mission to love the world in exactly the same way that the Father loves Him, and thus drawing the world unto Himself through the church.
Gal 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I but Christ liveth in me and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
· Greek: Yet no longer I, but lives in the world that defines “ME”, Christ.
