THE MYSTERY OF THE FATHER
-Colossians 2:2,3 states, … That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto
all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of
Christ; In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge …
According to Ray Prinzing:
-"I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father."
[John 16:28]. Furthermore, "It is expedient for you that I go away." [John 16:7]. What was He saying? God, omnipotent, omnipresent
Spirit, invisible, THE FATHER SOURCE, dwelled in the man Christ Jesus, manifested as SON. In this realm there
was limitation, "The Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do." [John 5:19]. As the Spirit ( Father)
directed, so He did. Faithful, obedient, He sought not His own will, but only to fulfill the will of the Father. Men knew
Him as Jesus, they could not see the Father in Him. But furthermore, it was necessary to leave the realm of limitation (sonship)
behind, and to return into His FATHERHOOD POSITION, so that He might fulfill those purposes which were beyond the realms
of sonship. The very fact of "being in the form of a servant, made in the likeness of men," [Philippians 2:7] meant limitation.
Jesus knew His position as a SON, but He also knew of His position as FATHER, and that it was expedient for
Him to return to that realm from which He would be able to impart, pour out of Himself, as the Source for every need." ( Whispers
Of The Mysteries, Ray Prinzing )
-YES … Jesus was the Father manifested in the flesh. The understanding of the Father remains a mystery
to many people due to the common, traditional error of trying to make the Father and the Son as two separate beings. When
we use the term “THE SON OF GOD”, we are to understand this as God in the form of the Son. God, the eternal Word,
was made flesh, and dwelled among us. Here is a list of some other scriptures to help you understand the mystery of the Father:
Isaiah 9:6, John 10:30-33, and John 14:8-9.
-The mystery of the Father was manifested in the Son. Jesus, the everlasting Father (Isaiah 9:6), was the Word
made flesh, Who dwelled among us, ( and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, ) full of grace
and truth (John 1:14).
