Command Ye Me?

 

David Eells

 

{Isa.45:11} Thus saith Jehovah, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker: Ask me of the things that are to come; concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands, command ye me.

 

Primarily, we do not command God but secondarily we do.  When we command a thing in obedience to Him, like the disciples commanded healings, deliverances, provisions and miracles, it is God Who performs them.  {Mar.11:23} Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou taken up and cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that what he saith cometh to pass; he shall have it.  Some in false humility would argue with Jesus here and beg God to do these things for them instead of command them done as He commanded us to do.  When we in obedience command, "thy kingdom come thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven," God is the one who does it.  In effect; we are commanding Him.  However, we command what he has told us to command and given us the gift of faith to command.  This is what He means by "concerning the work of My hands command ye me."   

 

Even though Jesus was cut off in the flesh, He never ceased His ministry.  Instead it became greater for He ministered in His corporate body, as He planned, in order to reach the New Testament, world wide, corporate body.  He continued His ministry in His disciples.  He said, concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands, command ye me.”  The Lord’s sons do the work of His hands because they are His hands in the earth.  (Isa.53:10) Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin (cut off), he shall see [his] seed (His disciples), he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.  Notice that Jesus saw [his] seed and prolonged his days” after His death.  There are no “days” in eternity where Jesus went.  Therefore He prolonged his days” in his seed as He said He would (Jn.17:21,22; 1 Cor.12:12; Mt.10:40).  His name, Immanuel, means “God with us,” and of course He has never left us.  Jesus in verse one was called “the arm of the Lord.”  Like as our relationship to Jesus, without the arm the hand is nothing.  The arm gives strength to the hand, which was and still is His disciples.  “he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.”  As the hands of our Lord we do all things in accordance with the mind of the Lord and just as He did them when He was physically on earth.

 

Jesus' disciples always commanded healings, deliverances, provisions and miracles when ministering the gifts of God to others.  They prayed for God to do these things in their personal prayer life but not when ministering for they had been given authority to act in Jesus name.  {Act.3:6} But Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but what I have, that give I thee. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk. {9:34} And Peter said unto him, Aeneas, Jesus Christ healeth thee: arise and make thy bed. And straightway he arose. {9:40} But Peter put them all forth, and kneeled down and prayed; and turning to the body, he said, Tabitha, arise. {13:11} And now, behold, the hand of the Lord is upon thee, and thou shalt be blind, not seeing the sun for a season. And immediately there fell on him a mist and a darkness; and he went about seeking some to lead him by the hand. {14:9} The same heard Paul speaking, who, fastening eyes upon him, and seeing that he had faith to be made whole, {14:10} said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped up and walked.  {Josh.10:12} Then spake Joshua to Jehovah in the day when Jehovah delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel; and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; And thou, Moon, in the valley of Aijalon. {10:13} And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, Until the nation had avenged themselves of their enemies.  Authority is the right to use power and in this case the command to use power.  It would have been disobedience to ask God to do what He had commanded them to do.  He said, “Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons: freely ye received, freely give.”  He also said, "As the Father hath sent me, so send I you."  As Jesus sows the seed of His own life and ministry in His disciples today, it is He that is commanding “thy kingdom come” in them for now they are the Body of Christ in the earth commanding as He did.
