The Order Of God
« on: October 08, 2006, 03:42:00 PM »
Ephesians 1:22-23  And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

Colossians 1:18  And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

From the Word of God, we know that Christ is the head of His body, which is the church.  We know that God the Father is the head of Christ.  One the earth we have designation of gender and even that is spoken of in God's Word:

1 Corinthians 11:3  But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

1 Timothy 2:12  But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

In a congregation, assembly, fellowship, ministry both online/offline and even in the spirit realm and on the earth, God is STILL the God of order:

1 Corinthians 14:33  For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

1 Corinthians 14:40  Let all things be done decently and in order.

Ideally, in any service (Matthew 18:20), it should be Holy Spirit led.  So then if we ALL truly yield to the Holy Spirit then there would be NO confusion.  However, we know this is not always so.  Our flesh, self will and the devil get involved in services and then there is spiritual warfare (Ephesians 6:10-20) that we must contend with.  When the Holy Spirit is truly in control of a service, then there will be God's order and His peace, provision, presence AND blessing. 

So then however the Holy Spirit wills to show up in any one vessel or many vessels, if the Holy Spirit is truly doing and we're obeying/yielding to Him there will be God's perfect order. 

Can't mix flesh with Spirit to get Spirit.  Has to be Spirit to Spirit, spirit to spirit or Spirit to spirit to equal God's plan.  God is SO MUCH God until He CAN make our flesh behave.  Everything is subject to God.  Nothing is hidden from Him:

2 Chronicles 16:9  For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.
