THE HEAD OF SPIRITS
In looking at matters related to the head, we shall first consider God whom the scriptures refer to as the father(head) of spirits in cover my head : episode 1.
Hebrews 12:9 KJV Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?
All things take root in the spirit realm. The believer must understand that no portion of the manifest creation of God exists without any spiritual relevance or implications.
The act of making
There is that which the scriptures refer to as the act of making. And in this very process of making are two stages by which a thing is made.
The act of creation
Please know that firstly, a thing will have to undergo creation before it can exist,. Nevertheless, the creative phase deals with the things of the Spirit. That means everything undergoes creation in the spirit realm before it manifests into the earth realm. And this time around am using the earth realm and no other because this is where we find ourselves.
The act of formation
The next thing to surface after creation is the act of formation. When we form, every eye sees the manifestation of such things. We classify something as having been made only when it fully forms. Other than that, it would be a waste of resources to embrace an unfinished work. Thus, the finished work of Christ in the believer is not when we get born again per se. As in the new creation. But then you must understand that the penultimate of God’s will is the formation of Christ in us. And the fact that you are a new creation does not mean you are a new formation as yet. For this cause, Paul the apostle testifies of his continual prayer for the formation of Christ in the church :
Galatians 4:19 KJV My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you,
The word, ‘formed’ as used in the scripture above is rendered in Greek as, ‘morphoo’. The root word for ‘morphoo’ is ‘morphe’. Which simply means, ‘the form by which a person or thing strikes the vision or makes external appearance’.

The finished work of Christ
Hence, what God is looking for in you as a believer is not an unfinished work of the new creation. But instead, a complete work of a new formation. God sends his Spirit into our hearts so that in the end Christ will make his appearance on the outside. Beloved of God, I would like to announce to you that we are currently in a transit of an act of making where God has already regenerated our spirits and we continually fellowship with him until the Day of Christ.
Therefore, Christ shall not only live on our inside but shall appear on our outside someday. Nevertheless, this as I talk about is a work of consciousness until Christ who is our life shall appear ;
Colossians 3:4 KJV When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
I don’t want to delve deeper into this mystery. Howbeit, it is necessary for the topic under discussion.
The difference between the created man and the formed man
Furthermore, understand that by reason of this act of making discussed above, there is a big difference between the created man and the formed man. That means, to create and to form are two different things but are all substantial in making a thing to exist. For this cause, the word of God is very clear on the fact that God created man before he formed man.
The scriptures below ascertain the act of making :
Genesis 1:26 KJV And God said, Let us ‘make man’(the act of making) in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
Thus when God decided to make man, he first creates him :
Genesis 1:27 KJV So God ‘created man’(the act of creation) in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
And later formed him :
Genesis 2:7 KJV And the LORD God ‘formed man’(the act of formation) of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
The body for a covering
Notice that Adam had no body until he was fully formed. This phenomenon is however evident in expectant mothers – pregnant women. It is in the womb of a mother that formation takes place. But then, before we were formed in the womb to be born by a woman, we existed with God in the spirit realm.
This is the reason why God was acquainted with the prophet Jeremiah even before his formation:
Jeremiah 1:5 BBE Before you were formed in the body of your mother I had knowledge of you, and before your birth I made you holy; I have given you the work of being a prophet to the nations.
Hence before Adam had a body, he was a disembodied spirit, a naked spirit to be precise. A spirit without clothing or covering. I will urge everyone to understand that we as believers do not possess our bodies as yet. What we have now is called the outward man. But the outward man must perish for the overtaking of the body of Jesus.
The body we dwell in now is called the body of Christ(the church – temple) which is patterned after the spirit for a garment to all that believe in the son of God. Because of this, scripture emphasises that Christ is a garment – a cloth : Galatians 3:27 KJV For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

The body of Jesus
But then, when we come into our full inheritance, the body of Jesus must be our dwelling. This body is a glorified body and celestial. And by reason of this body, even when we die, we actually sleep. That is to say that, we rest. 1Thessalonians 4:14 KJV For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also ‘which sleep in Jesus’ will God bring with him.
For this cause, Jesus admonishes that we shouldn’t be naked(without covering) on that day. Just as Adam and Eve were without a covering and became ashamed :
Revelation 3:18 ISV Therefore, I advise you to buy from me gold purified in fire so you may be rich, white clothes to wear so your shameful nakedness won’t show, and ointment to put on your eyes so you may see.
If you really understand the principle of making then you must understand by now that there is also a difference between Christ and Jesus. They are not the same and nevertheless it is one and the same person. Howbeit, without confusing hearts for confusion is not of God, I shall halt here for now – this is for the aged.
The mysteries of the kingdom is given for you to understand
In the meantime, if you didn’t get anything at all for today just know that God is the father of spirits. And in his bid to carry out his duty as the head, he seeks the ministration of nourishment firstly, to provide for every seed a body – a clothing;
1Corrinthians 15:38 EasyEnglish But God makes that seed become a plant. He gives to it the special body that he has chosen for it. To each kind of seed, God gives its own body.
If we have received the seed of Christ by which we are born again in the spirit then we must also receive the putting on of the body of Jesus by which our glory shall appear. For then must he(Christ) bring many sons into glory :
Hebrews 2:10 ISV It was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through suffering as part of his plan to glorify many children,
The King James version puts it this way :
Hebrews 2:10 KJV For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
Again, when we put on the body of Jesus, it won’t be the end of our transit in God. But rather, it shall be the end of the beginning. For when the sons come into full maturity, that is when the actual work shall begin. Howbeit, I speak mysteries – who can know it?
Today’s message in its simplicity
All that I want to communicate with this message is that God, who is more than our earthly fathers who provide shelter for us in the aspect of clothing also seeks that all men be clothed. That is to say, just as it is the duty of the head of the family to provide clothing, it is also the duty of God – father of spirits, to provide clothing for his children. This cloth as we talk about is called a body which is also known as a garment. Thus, when Adam and Eve fell, the first thing God did was to sow clothes for them, to cover their nakedness. And he did this so that their shame do not appear :
Genesis 3:21 EasyEnglish The Lord God made clothes for Adam and Eve to wear. He made them from animal skins.
Conclusively, one of the duties of the father of spirits in ministering nourishment for the body is the provision of clothing. For we all know that in the family, it is the duty of a father – the head of the family to provide clothing for the children :
Colossians 2:19 KJV And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God.
Therefore, what is the duty of the head of all spirits? His duty is to provide clothing for all his children. But why? In order to cover their nakedness. And how? He does this by a certain hope called the hope of glory. This is what I intend to simply communicate today in its entirety. If you didn’t get anything at all, please get this one, Hallelujah!
We have come to the end of a wonderful episode. Its been a time in the word, we will never forget. And I hope you’ve been blessed. Watch out for episode 2.
