Unbroken Communion "With The Father"   Lesson #1
We as children of God need to realize the importance of communion. God’s word frequently uses the
words, “communion” or “commune.”  The Greek word for communion is “Koinonia.”  The two
words are used to describe fellowship, communicate, contribution, and distribution. Here, we will
study the sweet fellowship and the communication between God the Father, and Christ the Son.  This
lesson is an attempt to enlighten the believer of the importance of their communion with the Lord as
well.

Communion with our father will allow us to walk in the fear of him, and it allows us to take on his
thoughts, feelings, attitudes, and the principles of God.  In a nutshell we take on the heart of God. If
we would only commune with the father as often as he desires, we would not be just considered ‘His
servants.’ But we become more of his co-workers. 2Cor. 6:1 states, “We are workers together with
him.” 2Cor 3:18 says, “But we all with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the lord,
are
changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the spirit of the lord.” By these
statements, we learn that it is very possible for us to take on the character of God. It is clear that we
cannot take on God’s heart if we do not seek to develop or become persistent in our efforts to have a
more deeply rooted, intimate, and committed relationship with him. As dear children of the Most
High and Almighty God, we should long for hunger, and thirst after righteousness…...Why?  I am
glad that you asked!
For they that do hunger and thirst after His righteousness shall be filled (Mt 5:6).  Also
see and read Ps. 63:1, 84:2,42:1-2.

Constant communion with our Father will allow us to experience His omnipresence. When we are
tempted to entertain deluding thoughts, especially those that tempt us to give up on God, He will
make known His touch and His presence. Let us take a glance at our Savior Christ Jesus.  He was
presumably always aware that his Father was very near, and very present (see John 5:19, 30, 14:11).  
When Jesus was praying in the Garden of Gethsemane, He underwent the “agony of decision.”  He
had to make one crucial, self-less decision that would effect the lives of all humanity for all eternity.  
He knew what His initial purpose for living had been, as well as what His cruel death would mean.  
But somehow, even this man, the Son of God, was in a dilemma.  Perhaps, Satan and flesh itself, had
not given up on Jesus.  They (Satan and flesh) wanted to present Jesus another chance to give up on
the most climatic moment in history which purpose had been to ultimately destroy and completely
annihilate the works of the devil (John3:8).  However, Jesus knew He needed guidance, assurance,
and perhaps, a touch from the Father.  He knew the cross was waiting for Him.  Apparently in a brief
moment, He was not so sure He could bear
it….becoming SIN for the sake of souls!  (Rom8:3; Heb.10)
For we believe that His request to have the cup pass Him was not merely because He knew He would
undergo such pain and torment.  In fact, we really do not believe that Christ was as much concerned
with not wanting to suffer the pain.  For again, He knew the consequences aforetime.  He really knew
about the physical and emotional part of being humanized (Heb4:15).  We truly believe that the entire
ordeal of Jesus’ agony boiled down to the fact that He knew that there would be separation between
He and God, the Father….Which the two of them had never been separated!  For in the beginning
was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God (John 1:1).  If you quickly notice,
Matthew cites Jesus saying:
 “Eli, Eli, lama sabacthani?. ….that is to say, “My God, My God, why hast
thou forsaken me?”
 Please note, this is perhaps, the first and only place you will see Jesus refer to ‘His
Father‘, as ‘My God‘!  Up until this point, Jesus always referred to God as, ‘My Father‘.  Nevertheless,
Jesus proceeded to do what He had become accustomed to….and that was seeking the Father.  In so
doing, Jesus got back on track.  The Father had to reassure Him in His spirit that the cup couldn’t be
passed (Luke22:39-44).  For he stated, nevertheless, not my will, but thine will be done (v42).  Jesus
and God were back in sync. For it was at that moment, the bible declares that an angel came from
Heaven and strengthened Him.

(
Reflection Point:  This is the way Satan tries to detour you from the ways of Lord.  If Satan can
distract you from
your divine purpose, deceive you of who and what you really are, then, get you
separated from God, and the things of God all is well for the kingdom of Hell! For Satan want us to
give in to our carnal man: our will, our mind, and our emotions… And he knows we have been
commanded to let the mind of Christ be in us (Phil.2:5).  Satan also knows we need a renewing of our
minds on a daily basis….And his job is to steal, kill, and destroy anything or anyone who threatens his
darkened kingdom….And my friend,
YOU ARE THE ONE!)

Jesus really walked to a different beat.  Anyone that knows anything about Jesus, knows that His very
works, actions, reflexes, and/or responses to people and things were and are quite contrary to those
actions and responses of us (i.e. on a day to day basis).  In other words, Jesus did exactly what his
Father instructed Him.  Yes, He had been manifested in the flesh.  However, he responded very
spiritually… Why you ask again?  For we know that He and His Father are one (John10:30)…see also
John14:6-10, 15.  Moreover, the Father was and is a spirit!  For the scriptures states
“God is a spirit and
they that worship Him, must worship Him in spirit and in truth.”
(John4:24)  Nevertheless Jesus wanted to
please the Father.  He stated that his meat (i.e. business, aim, or goal) is to do the will of Him that
sent Him, and to finish His work (see John 4:34; along w/ John 8:29, 5:7, 6:28-29).  This concerns the
work of God.  We could very well examine Jesus’ sayings concerning His relationship with His
Father.   We can infer that Jesus was practically God’s translator of Heavenly things (i.e. things
present and things to come, and all things concerning the Kingdom of God, of which He always
operated in).  In other words, Jesus spoke when God spoke, and judged when God judged (John5:22,
30; 8:15).  Most people couldn’t hear what He heard.  Most people couldn’t flow in the spirit with
grace as He had.  Jesus really walked to a different rhythm.  
“I am the vine and you are the branches.”
(John15:5)  Think about that scripture.  If you took a quick glimpse at a grapevine, you would notice
that it is a little impossible to discern exactly where one (the vine) starts and the other (branches)
ends.  This nevertheless, is how we are supposed to be as believers.  We are and supposed to be so in
sync with Christ, having God the Father as the Husbandman, that even the world at large will
recognize who and whose we are.  We should never have to be compelled to verbally express our
Christianity.  We should clearly resemble God the Father and the Son.  For they are one according to
Jesus. (see John 5:17-45;14:1-31)  Most importantly, we were made in their image. (Gen.1:26-27)   Just
take a look at the following, while we’re talking about the “oneness” of God the Father, Christ the
Son, and we, the sheep of his pasture :
“That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee,
that they also may be one in us:  that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.  And the glory which thou
gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, that they may
be made perfect in one…”
(see John 17:11, 21-23)  The scriptures goes on to tell us that you shall know
them by their fruits… Think about this for a moment!  If Christ is the True Vine, we are the branches,
and God the Father is the husbandman (the One that watches over Israel neither slumber nor
sleep…Ps121:4) why should we jeopardize our relationship?  With Christ being the one good True
Shepherd, that never leaves His sheep, we should desire to develop and maintain a deeply committed
relationship with the Father all the more!  Do you want to know how you can obtain such a
relationship with the Father?  Praise the Lord!  You said, “Yes!”

There needs to be conditioning: a renewing of your mind set and your priorities. There needs to be a
consistent pattern of intimacy and prayer.  Do not allow for your day to begin without crying out to
the Lord in reverence of His wondrous ability to wake you.  Now God does not esteem any one-time
over another.  For you can seek Him in the evening and at night as well.  He simply wills that men
pray everywhere (1Tim.2:8).  Evening, morning, and at noon will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall
hear my voice (Ps55:17).  It is probably just as sweet incense that enters God’s presence and His
nostrils to know that He has a child that declares, “My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord;
in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up: (Psalms.5:3).  In a sense, you are
saying, “Every morning that I awake, I will tell you what I need and I’ll wait for your answer.  For the
Lord will bless the righteous with favor. (see also Ps5:12)

Hear the Word of the Lord!  Seek Him now….Seek a more intimate relationship with Him.  Love on
Him!  He deserves
it and YOU owe it to yourself!  Start TODAY!….Commune with the Lord…and
make Him Lord over EVERYTHING!
