It's hard for "the unstable and unwrest" (II Peter 3:16) to under the "operation of GOD!"
GOD IS GOD! HE came "Praise HIMSELF" if it's HIS Will; ANY TIME! HE doesn't need us because HE SAID "I'll make the rocks cry out if mankind doesn't praise me" (Luke 19:40); therefore, we need HIM!
Being in the world as half man and half GOD, JESUS learned how mankind "feels in the flesh" (Hebrews 4:15) so that HE can "judge righteous judgment!"
When JESUS spoke Matthew 28:18 HE had risen from the dead and was now back in ALL SPIRIT whereas previously HE was half flesh (aka CHRIST) and as ALL SPIRIT HE regained ALL POWER from the "SELFSAME SPIRIT" (I Corinthians 12:11)!
GOD is NOT a man and mankind shouldn't look at HIM as one looks at mankind or as an earthly father and son but ONE "SELFSAME SPIRIT" who operates in GLORIES! If you bear this in mind MAYBE you'll be able to understand the "operation of GOD!"
When GOD manifests into different "GLORIES," HE never separates from HIMSELF (I Corinthians 1:13) while "filling the heavens and earth" (Jeremiah 23:24) in as MANY other "GLORIES" as HE desires; SIMULTANEOUSLY! Therefore, when HE was walking on earth in the "GLORY" *AS OF* THE SON, HE was also in heaven operating in the "GLORY" of THE FATHER; SIMULTANEOUSLY!
One of the things JESUS acquired while in the flesh is knowing how mankind feels in the flesh in order to "judge righteous judgment!" Hebrews 4:15 says "We don't have a high priest who cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin." Therefore, the "SELFSAME SPIRIT" who has the capability of "knowing how we feel in the flesh" is necessary to "judge mankind righteously" but when that "GLORY" is no longer required that is when HE will "give authority back to the "SELFSAME SPIRIT" so HE can be "ALL IN ALL" (I Corinthians 15:28) the way HE was "in the beginning!"
What confuses mankind is when the "SELFSAME SPIRIT" Fathered HIMSELF (Luke 1:35) and "subjected HIMSELF to the world" (Hebrews 4:15), then "CALLED" HIMSELF THE SON as HE was GOD'S "greatest GLORY" (Hebrews 1:3)! To add to man's misunderstanding of "The Father and Son; GOD *CALLED* HIMSELF; THE SON because being half man and subjected to this sinful world HE gave up "ALL POWER" and became one of us; at least half of one of us and therefore; THE SON! If you read John 1:14 HE came "...*AS OF* the only begotten of the Father" but was REALLY GOD who "manifested HIMSELF in the flesh" (II Timothy 3:16)!
THIS IS THE GREATEST ALLEGORY IN SCRIPTURE: "The Father and Son are One" (John 3:30)!
In Matthew 11:25 you have to bear in mind that JESUS is half man and half GOD and JESUS was speaking from the "flesh" (after seeing how man operates in the flesh) thanking the "SELFSAME SPIRIT" that the lower class (aka "babes") are more highly used by GOD than those who think themselves "wise!" The "babes" have less "ego" and are more "humble" therefore GOD can use those who don't think highly of themselves unlike the "wise" who "Lean to their own understanding" (Proverbs 3:5)!
JESUS SAID in Matthew 18:3-6 "...Verily I say unto you, Except you be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall HUMBLE himself as this little child, the same is GREATEST in the kingdom of heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth ME. But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in ME, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea."
Therefore, "pride" and "ego" has no part in the kingdom of heaven! We must become as little children "TRUSTING" (Proverbs 3:5) and "BELIEVING" on HIS WORD!
As for me, "...I thank thee, O Father, LORD of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and the prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes!"
THANK YOU JESUS!
