These "Well Done" sections are from a chapter that is still in processes, but I wanted to post a little more here as I hope to have a message up shortly where I go further into this revelation. Love to hear feedback as well! Lord Bless! ...
Jesus walked the planet the last three years telling people who He was and backing it up with signs and wonders. He actually told us we didn’t have to believe Him if He didn’t back it up this way… But for His first thirty years, Jesus (The Father revealed) perfect theology, Love in human form, lived among us and only handful knew it.
Some might be tempted to think that Jesus first thirty years are not as significant as the last three years simply because we have no miracles to measure Him by. However, I think that those first thirty years are the reason He lived like He did the last three.
Jesus goes into the water and when He comes out, what does the Father say? “This is my Son, whom I love. With Him I am well pleased” Essentially the Father looked at His Son and said, “well done”.
So why was the Father pleased, what had Jesus done? It’s a good question.
And the answer is, apparently nothing noteworthy – in the eyes of man. But in the eyes of His Father, Jesus nailed it. For thirty years Jesus became sure in His Fathers love. For thirty years Jesus saw His Fathers nature, and then saw more of His Fathers nature, and then saw more of His Fathers nature. For thirty years Jesus knew His Fathers love, and then knew more of His love, and more of His love. For thirty years Jesus grew in Wisdom and Favor. For thirty years Jesus became sure, and surer, and surer in His Fathers always-good love.
AND then, He gets a “Well Done.”
He got the well done before He did anything.
He got the well done before he healed the blind eye, the def ear, the lame, before he cleansed the leper. He got the well done before he cast out demons and set people free, before he turned water into wine, before he walked on water, before he made more food out of less. He got the well done before He raised the dead. He got the well done before He raised up world changing disciples,
He got the well done before He went into a wilderness, before He went to a cross, before He rose, before He saved all of humankind, before setting us free from slavery to need. He got a well done before He ascended and then descended in the form of the Holy Spirit to release us into a brand new one of a kind intimate revelation of love.
Jesus got a well done, before He did anything.
You know what I think, the well done set Him up to do. I believe all the beautiful works He did over the last three years of His life was the evidence of the first thirty years of becoming sure in His Fathers always-good love.
I would like to suggest that those thirty years of obscurity had nothing to do with doing and everything to do with becoming sure in His Fathers love. It was about intimacy. It was about seeing the Father and becoming sure as His Son.
I would like to suggest that when we get to heaven and we get a well done, it wont be for what we did, it will be for how sure we became in our Fathers love. The doing is simply the evidence that we believed He loved us.
