A Brief Whirlwind Tour of John Chapters 13-17
If you own any kind of web platform or web space be it a profile in Twitter or Facebook, be it your own blog or commercial webpage you will have a control panel.
This is what Jesus was announcing repeatedly in the Upper Room discourse repeatedly in this phrase
Whatsoever you ask in My Name I WILL DO IT John 14.14
This was the first of several John 15.7
further clarification verse 26
WE HAVE A CONTROL PANEL.
This is the thing the devil was trying to get for himself.
This is the very hub of witchcraft and all the occult arts as defined by Aleister Crowley....."Do what thou wilst."
So how can it be safe for man?
How can God's Mandate to us ever be true? Go , multiply, fill the earth and subdue it?
YOU KNOW HOW?
It is hermetically sealed before the Throne in the heavenlies
It cannot be touched by human hands
It is absolutely IN Jesus Christ.....SAFE
It is IN HIS NAME
The ROGUE idea of a self run soul commanding things from his leftbrain, or even adjoined to demon spirits by initiations and spells.....all this unyielded mind ,will and emotion dies in the Place of the Skull, Golgotha....
Not to deny us through the Cross as Satan lies to us....
But to secure for us a heavenly control panel inside the new Creation and Person of Jesus Christ.
Everything in the heavenlies is cleansed by the Blood of Christ and His offering.
No more does he call us disciples. He calls us friends.....if we can accept it.
But God LOCATES the Power in John 13-17
He puts it in a living framework.
What is that framework, that infrastructure?
WASHING OTHERS FEET LOVE.
UNION in the Trinity and with each other.
“I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who believe in Me through their word; 21 that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may [f]believe that You sent Me.
The Israelites sought union with each other when they pushed Moses up the mountain and they made a calf and played.
The Gift to us and our generation of Psalm 24 people is that the mountain is given to us to enter and find one another in, while coming home to God the Trinity.
This is the context of power.
In MY NAME you shall ask what you will and it shall be done for you.
Is anybody grabbing something????
