Points are shared on the GODhead, and how divinity may hear and respond to multiple expressions and prayers from the living.  Mature Christian believers agree that GOD is a spirit who appears through active presence, person and purpose, yet, is not limited to form or process that is carnal, material and social.  Sacred order and the divine Word establish, and further oneness and relationship to divinity through diverse aspects of utterance.  Included are law, praise, prayer, promise, and prophecy.  Existing as spirit, Deity may continue as immutable, omnipresent, unbounded, and unchanging.  Christ dying upon the cross comes into view for his followers as an appearance of divine fullness that combines life, death, flesh, Spirit, things seen, and things unseen.  Consider the following from the Scriptures, and the presentation below:

1st Corinthians 8:  6, King James Version (KJV):  6 But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

1st John 2:  22-24, KJV:  22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.  23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father:  [but] he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.  24 Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.

Romans 8:  26-28, KJV:  26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities:  for we know not what we should pray for as we ought:  but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.  27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.  28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

1st Corinthians 12:  12-14, KJV:  12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body:  so also is Christ.  13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.  14 For the body is not one member, but many.

Mark 14:  32-36, KJV:  32 And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane:  and he saith to his disciples, Sit ye here, while I shall pray.  33 And he taketh with him Peter and James and John, and began to be sore amazed, and to be very heavy;  34 And saith unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death:  tarry ye here, and watch.  35 And he went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him.  36 And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me:  nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt.

How does God handle billions of prayers coming in to Him simultaneously?

Let’s its easter and everyone is praying. God could easily receive a billion prayers from people asking for stuff within a hour. Do He got a huge switchboard up there ih heaven?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come:  but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.  And ye now therefore have sorrow:  but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.  And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.  Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name:  ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.  These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs:  but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father.  At that day ye shall ask in my name:  and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:  For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.  (John 16:  21-27, KJV)

“Larry Fine”, to correctly understand the accomplishment of the peculiar unity for Creation provided by Jesus Christ dying upon the cross requires sacred knowledge that is recognized and retained through operations of an imparted Spirit from the makeup of GOD.  Mature Christian believers trust that, despite time and space, through operations of the Holy Spirit, blood and truth from the cross are flowing to here and now.  Through revelation, divinity appears using things that now exist, once existed, and are promised will exist to become knowable and known by created beings and living creatures.  Finite intellect operates by acknowledging measurable dimensions, discrete characteristics, and orientation within frameworks of time and space.  Classification and differentiation are promoted (i.e., comparison, contrast, and separation).  In the priesthood of Jesus Christ, however, sacred operations appear whereby divinity fulfills eternal purposes that center in permanent change, completion, joining, making whole, and unifying.   Oneness may exist without sameness, thus, sacred operations appear such as atonement, confession, covenant, inheritance, rebirth, sanctification, substitution, and transformation.  Given the absence of such features as competition, malice, exaggerated pride and selfishness. prayer among believers demonstrates accord, agreement and diversity (rather than  conflict or change).  Saying this in language from the Bible, consider the following:

(1.)  Ephesians 4:  4-6, King James Version (KJV):  4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;  5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,  6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

(2.)  Colossians 1:  19-22, KJV:  19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;  20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.  21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled  22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:

(3.)  Romans 8:  5-9, KJV:  5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.  6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.  7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God:  for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.  8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.  9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

(4.)  Ephesians 1:  17-21, KJV:  17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:  18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,  19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,  20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,  21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

There is far more to be said, understood, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (5.)  Ephesians 1:  9-11, KJV:  9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:  10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:  11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
