Tuning : Part Three - The First Octave.Tuning to Others

My very well used pouch of 12 tuning forks. Thirty years ago I had an electronic tuner which was stolen during a restaurant meal when I was beginning to share the third level with my friends around 1989. A waitress came up and said "Is that your car with the smashed window?".
Worse still, my friends' pastor after this, told them to have nothing to do with me. Hmmm.....were it not for the reality of Christ living our lives....we'd all have given this message a miss, and rejoined the jolly ranks of the charismatic kneesup. But it is true, and no matter what the devil, or the charismatic movement want to throw at it, Christ is going to have His way. Ever since,by the way I've operated from 12 tuning forks instead.

This is the third in a series which traces the procedure of tuning a whole piano. It is an unashamed allegory for the Big Picture of how God is wooing a people into relationship with Him. He is tuning us up to Him, both directly and indirectly. Directly by taking some apart for a while, and getting them to tune stringently to His operational ways, and to His heartbeat which is love. Indirectly, through "peer tuning", by far the quicker procedure because having each other puts pressure upon each other that left to our own devices might simply not occur as fast.(*$)
This series is at one level the real deal of tuning. If you follow these steps with enough practice pianos over approximately two years you literally will be a professional standard piano tuner.
Hah! And you thought they were mild little blogposts, huh?
In Part One and Part Two (Mark Knopfler edition) we were looking at the very first two stages.Tuning one individual string to an authentic concert pitch/normal pitch source, then by using nature's inbuilt mechanism of hearing odd beating effects between notes, we can tune strings to other strings so that three separate stings are "bang in tune" and give the impression of one note. This is all a picture of how we have to get our gospel from God. The one we've been living from had either only one string to it : the gospel of forgiveness, or two strings only : forgiveness and an experience with the Holy Spirit.
But treble strings on a piano have 3 strings to make a complete note. The missing string is the subject of this blog: the complete exchange made by Jesus Christ at the Cross. There were two baptisms for the Israelites. One baptism launched the Israelites on a route through the Red Sea, where all their Egyptian enemies (past life) drowned. This is a Passover Truth. This is a gospel of forgiveness. That is ALL a whole generation of Israelites experienced in terms of baptism, and there they all died (excepting 2) in the desert. The young ones 40 years later experienced a 2nd baptism in order to go into the Land. This is also represented by the Day of Atonement immediately before harvest time in the third Feast: Feast of Tabernacles. Day of Atonement is related to but DIFFERENT FROM Passover. Most Christians are completely confused by this.

But before communities can be set up in different locations to the glory of God in the manner that Paul set them up, a full " 3 string gospel" has to be understood by revelation. You see, this third post is about living as communities of this genuine 3 string gospel. The analogy is taken from once having one perfect three string note, we progress to set up the first octave.

What is an octave?
An octave is 8 notes which in our cultures are represented by the seven letters A B C D E F G, which lead onto the 8th note where the same sequence repeats. This is like the 7 days of the week and the 7 visible colour shades of the rainbow. In between some of these notes are black keys which give us the remaining semitones or half notes , the flats and sharps,which enable us to play in any of the 12 keys. In C major, the simplest of keys, we only use the white keyniotes. In C# Major you practically have to borrow pieces of coal from next door to have enough black notes to squeeze 'em all in.

Later, I'm going to be dropping a natural and spiritual bombshell regarding these 12 notes.

What does an octave represent?
For the purposes of my blog and this post in particular an octave represents a fully functioning unit of Kingdom Community, most often known as the local church.
What it doesn't represent is an interest group, or a club of similar personality types.

In piano terms, having isolated one particular string in order to tune it to a source, like a tuning fork or electronic tuner, and having tuned two other strings to it to fool everyone that there is just one note being played, they have to set about creating one perfect prototype octave working out from this one note. A large disproportionate time is given to this octave. From this one octave, every other octave will be tuned. Make a mistake here, and that mistake will be virally transmitted throughout the piano!
(Hmmm...did you pick up something there?.....interesting isn't it?)

The first ever Kingdom Octave was ACTUALLY an octave of 12 notes, or 12 rightly relating disciples, now apostles. They stood up together in Acts 2. Peter was granted the opportunity of being first to speak, but each of them had been prepared for this hour.

When tuners prepare that first octave, the best results are not obtained by tuning the lowest and gradually going up note by note against a tuning source. The system is not obvious at all. We tune by leaps of fourths and fifths and octaves. These are the most "related" of all the notes.

I don't want you to get too bogged down in the piano real world. Just to say we DO NOT TUNE one note against its immediate neighbour, but by notes that have a natural empathy towards each other. In real terms, when you play them against each other the beat cycles you hear are nearly .....I say....nearly non existant. But once you have been round the whole cycle of related keys, you end up with an incredibly stable, robust octave.

Let's start to pull this together
Andrew Elmes, Portsmouth, is an evangelist. If you do a search under his name below you will see that I particularly admire the way that rather than immediately get to work over here in the UK he took time out to seek God for his own life, and particularly to have the reality of God in terms of a real empowering and fire. This all occurred during the period my close friends Ron and Pam Knight were also staying with them all at Vaughan Jarrold's Preparation Centres in Queens New York City and Upper New York State. I know of which I speak. Also, that you should never touch Vaughan's Lemon Curd if you want to live long on the earth.
Peter Stott, Havant is primarily a prophetic teacher, but with a deep deep desire for revival which originated in his youth.

Now according to 1 Corinthians 12, if Andrew discounts Peter's ministry because it is not evangelistic, or if Peter does the converse because Andrew doesn't particularly "do " the
prophetic, they are both going to have fantastic little operations stretching across the globe in the respective keys of say Gbmajor and let's say B major, but speaking in Kingdom terms, they will be reproducing something other than Kingdom. The Bible says we are complete in Christ. This does not mean "Ah....I'm complete....needing nothing."
2 Peter 1:5-11

[5] For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; [6] and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; [7] and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. [8] For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. [9] But if anyone does not have them, he is nearsighted and blind, and has forgotten that he has been cleansed from his past sins.

The Life we receive from Christ has "joiney" bits to the other keys which we are not primarily.
One of the main reasons we can tell where people are at now is by observing not the "joiney" bits that run smoothly from one part to the other but rather the "fightey" bits.

This is the giveaway Paul says to the Corinthians that they are immature, when they say "I am of..... and not of...." Paul says rightly ALL THESE ARE YOURS.

Another look at the foundation
If you were to ask both Andrew and Peter what their foundational message is, they would, I believe answer in phraseology that related to their respective ministries. Neither would at this stage have reached the simplicity of
"laying a foundation of Christ " in the believer, or if they have reached here, they would not be happy reducing things to
Christ in You the Hope of Glory.
Nor certainly, a foundation of Christ IN YOU AS YOU.
This is precisely what this blog IS SAYING is the foundation of the Kingdom, and the foundation that transplants of itself anywhere. It has no viral additions. It is not "less than complete".
Everything that you South American man, and you Chinese woman need to "tune your whole area" is in
Christ's own very Life in you as you. Received by faith. Confessed with the lips.

The Radical nature of the Spirit octave.
Each note, or person rightly tuned into the Heavenly Tabernacle wherein dwells the Living Resurrected Christ is
connected to the Living Version, the Spirit version of these realities:
The OuterCourt where we had all our sin dealt with, both from a "covering " point of view and an inworked REPLACEMENT of sin at our spirit centre.
The Holy Place where we are made Kings and Priests to our God. We receive an anointing of the Holy Spirit and Fire. Fire to thoroughly bring us forth and fix us in our new identity, but fire also to transmit Christ's Person and message to others. Where anyone got the idea of some human university course of transmitted information to prepare for a secular office of Priest or Minister, our current generation, and certainly those from the Jesus People onwards are at a complete loss to explain.
The third most disputed area or Holiest Place, where Christ's life is fully mature in a believer, and they operate freely in this incarnated form of God's glory in just the same way that Jesus did.

Now this third "string", to be multiplied through a complete octave and from thence throughout the piano, is certainly the current war that is taking place in the Kingdom .This third Feast teaching. This Holiest Place teaching is the necessary missing ingredient which explains the gospels and Acts to us. It explains and fills out the rather patchy "human" teachings we have been getting in our churches from the later epistles. It explains how Paul can become a "prisoner for Christ" and simultaneously be releasing huge areas of nations for the multiplication of the gospel.
If the Kingdom of the devil switched itself on in Genesis 3 by us acting "independently (we thought) from God, then this third "string" represents the final "seeing" of how the the Kingdom of Light functions. We are replacing the devil's kingdom with the truth that Christ has totally replaced our sin spirit at our centre. Or as Andre Rabe and Francois Du Toit would say we are choosing to return to the Authentic creation, the one conceived in God's eye way before the beginning of time, the YOU as God conceived you. The same one the devil lies about, casts slurs about,saying you are insufficient and lacking. Well you are if you as a container are planning on functioning in the lie of self- godhood. This lying realm is empowered by the devil's own spirit which is seriously, seriously lacking in just about every feature of true godliness. But if instead as a container you recognise you were always intended to CONTAIN CHRIST....then instead of seeing this as something charismatics warn you against, in your desperation you find this is THE ONLY WAY LIFE WORKS. So where else are these other charismatics going to turn? Well, actually they only have 2 choices.
Back again to lengthen the duration of their self-imposed sentence of frustration in their own personal Romans 7, or like you, to realise this is one complete waste of time and a precious once lived- life, and therefore to properly recognise the truth. There is ONLY one LIFE in the Universe. God. Anything else isn't even a side-show. It's the realm of the law of sin and death. As Peter said of Jesus..."Where else can we go? You have the words of Eternal Life"

Starting to tune the octave
Quite often tuners will do a quick rough octave. This is like the charismatic movement. Jesus said when we meet together in the Name of Jesus there He is in our midst. So a whole bunch of totally different people, different personalities, ages, both sexes, find a MIRACLE takes place. They relate to this central pure tuning of Christ's Presence. And somehow, for the brief duration of a meeting a kind of "downpayment of unity" occurs.(Press on in the Unity of the spirit until you attain the unity of Faith) This can sometimes be just about continued across a Conference over mealtimes and staying with each other at houses.

This is like the Solomon's Temple version of Temple Building.
All the main slabs are cut elsewhere in quarries, then wonder of wonders, when the slabs are on site they slide together miraculously. In Piano terms, you get a beautifully tuned piano first octave that holds together just long enough for a quick run through! But lo and behold! Messy bits are there already, or messy bits soon appear because the notes are not stable yet!!!!
(Are you getting this already????)So here comes the bombshell!

The 12 note Bombshell in nature and in the Church

If stability wasn't enough of a factor there is an important feature about our creation you need to know. It concerns notes, pitches and keys.

Something happened in the Fall. Ask anybody, absolutely anybody who has been in prayer or in a meeting and suddenly had an open revelation of heaven where they have physically heard heaven's music and they will ALL say the same thing. So in the abundance of witnesses let's go with it. Music in heaven IS TRUER.
In the Fall, the harmonics of notes got squished. It is a subtle thing, but it has had an effect.
Nine foot or tenfoot Concert grand pianos are made that size for two reasons. They are louder. But they are truer. Long strings have louder main harmonic overtones. The loudest overtone of a string is an octave up, which sounds great. The next one up is a fifth above that which also sounds great. Too much above that you start to get some strange sounding harmonic overtones. Not much of a problem on a big piano.

It can be an enormous problem on a small piano. And us tuners have to tune a piano slightly squiffily to match!
Before I really appreciated what the differences were , Chichester College asked me to hurriedly tune an upright piano to their grand piano for a concert that afternoon. So I did. One of those occasions where you shouldn't do what a customer asks you because customers DON'T KNOW BEST!! The two performers would have played together quite happily,but for the next 6 months anyone playing on the upright would have winced because the tuning of the octaves was matched to the purer grand overtones.

Now regardless of overtones fourths and fifths seem to have been knocked out since the Fall. They are all but pure. So close in fact that the unitiated tune their guitar strings by means of harmonics which are altogether too pure if you want to be able to play in every key. This seems to hint that once upon a time 4ths 5ths and octaves once sounded absolutely pure one against the other, and just as many other features changed on earth, so the mathematics of sound vibration changed too.

I have described the octave as representing rightly related individuals in a locality, or another kind of meeting sliding together seemlessly as in Solomon's Temple. There is another model and this is more dynamic. This is the model that co-tunes itself. As in the 12 disciples who not only had Jesus shaping their behaviour by the power of His Word, but to a certain extent they would also have knocked each other into shape.
How do I know this? Because I was that man, among many women and men in Bible House who had the same effect on each other in the Holy Spirit. It is the Ezekiel 37 pattern of "bone rattling" which precedes the second prophesying which causes the army to stand fully clothed with flesh.

Now piano octaves do not tune themselves , more's the pity. But the Body of Christ builds itself up in love. Seamlessly.Quickly. Breathtakingly quickly. 'Look away for a while and it's already done' quickly. But only Christ builds Christ.

I'll say that again.
Only Christ can build Christ.

So are we clear then? If we want to play in one key, we may just about get away with tuning one scale with a perfect fourth and a perfect fifth. Sort of. But to be able to play in any of the 12 different keys at any time we have to detune each note, one against the other by an exact amount. This entails dividing an octave into twelve equal and rather abstract portions. It doesn't seem natural. In fact it isn't. It's mathematical. In the real world of tuning, for anyone that is following this, this pragmatically occurs by playing the note you are tuning along with a fourth and a fifth that you have tuned already and finding the mid point of "least" complaint. If you tune perfectly to the fourth, the fifth will complain, and vice-versa.So you have to find the midpoint where neither complains much. Then to finish your octave you must check that the beats in the thirds (GB,G#C,AC#,right up the scale) rise evenly. If all these criterion are met, congratulations, you have a perfect scale.

As Peter Stott always says Truth has tensions in it. See the suspended Orb Vision.
Just as the first octave has to be "meticulously detuned" for it to be tuned!!!! the Body of Christ cannot really work together in an immature state.
John Poole ministered in the Kansas City Shepherds Conference 1975 a key message on Unity. He reminded us that David prayed in Psalm 51 "Unite my heart to fear your name". If we as individuals are walking around with divided hearts: divided by fears of life, fear of ourselves, fear of man, a wrong fear of God (not the healthy one). Divided by agendas. False loves.
Then, John asked, how do we suppose the Body is ever going to be unified?

The middle realm known as the charismatic movement is a place of "downpayment", of "earnest" of our inheritance. The Holy Spirit falls and brings a unity of Spirit. We walk in this and maintain it until God brings the "unity of the faith".

So, to repeat, the bombshell in natural terms is that if you cycle round all the fifths in an octave tuning each perfectly , with no beats at all, why? Because it sounds pure. Then you will find that when you close the circle arriving back at the first note you began with, all your pure fifths added together , will have created an hideously overstretched octave.

But it sounded pure! But I was just going with the flow! How can it sound so awful?

So here we come to the awful truth about charismatic Christianity. If a group of individuals purely rely on what they "think" is flow without the other main point of reference which the Church is now being given, a complete unity and perfect incarnation of Christ cannot occur.

For the awful truth is this, according to 1 Corinthians 12, as it is for the strings of a piano. A man or woman will tend to be gift-centric.

Just as a string will want to be tuned a pure fourth or a pure fifth to another string. Strings don't think in terms of themselves, but if they did, this is how they would think.

Members of the Body on the other hand DO think in terms of themselves , their gifting and their own inclination. A teacher can think entirely according to doctrine, a prophet to their prophesying, a musician according to worship, a pastor to their pastoral care, a helper to their giving and helping.

In real terms, lived out in Christian community, this makes for an unpleasant rattling of the bones. A permanent state of tension between the different angles of seeing of the Body. What Peter Stott calls living in the tension of Truth.

The First Octave - but this time Three strings

"There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death." Proverbs 14:12
"But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!" Matthew 6:23

A longer passage from Ezekiel 8 :5- 16

5Then He said to me, "Son of man, F)">(F)raise your eyes now toward the north " So I raised my eyes toward the north, and behold, to the north of the altar gate was this G)">(G)idol of jealousy at the entrance.

6And He said to me, "Son of man, do you see what they are doing, the great H)">(H)abominations which the house of Israel are committing here, so that I would be far from My sanctuary? But yet you will see still greater abominations."

7Then He brought me to the entrance of the court, and when I looked, behold, a hole in the wall.

8He said to me, "Son of man, now I)">(I)dig through the wall." So I dug through the wall, and behold, an entrance.

9And He said to me, "Go in and see the wicked abominations that they are committing here."

10So I entered and looked, and behold, every form of creeping things and beasts and detestable things, with all the idols of the house of Israel, were carved on the wall all around.

11Standing in front of them were J)">(J)seventy K)">(K)elders of the house of Israel, with Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan standing among them, each man with his L)">(L)censer in his hand and the fragrance of the cloud of incense rising.

12Then He said to me, "Son of man, do you see what the elders of the house of Israel are committing in the dark, each man in the room of his carved images? For they say, 'M)">(M)The LORD does not see us; the LORD has N)">(N)forsaken the land.'"

13And He said to me, "Yet you will see still greater abominations which they are committing."

14Then He brought me to the entrance of the O)">(O)gate of the LORD'S house which was toward the north; and behold, women were sitting there weeping for Tammuz.

15He said to me, "Do you see this, son of man? Yet you will see still greater abominations than these."

16Then He brought me into the inner court of the LORD'S house. And behold, at the entrance to the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about twenty-five men with their P)">(P)backs to the temple of the LORD and their faces toward the east; and Q)">(Q)they were prostrating themselves eastward toward the sun.

How can it be that right in the place of worship things can be going so wrong. How can we as born again people of God at our spirit centre still be behaving so out of tune, so unnaturally towards that new Life we have been given. What are these creepy crawly squiffy lines of graffiti on the walls of our imaginings. How is it when we have such a lampstand of the Holy Spirit, and more than that, in our more inspired times the awareness of the Pure Light of God's actual Presence in the Holiest Place (He is the SUN that illumines heaven), that even here we should have our backs to God and be prostrating our selves to the natural sunlight? This speaks of returning to our natural wisdom. running meetings according to the OPPOSITE of Proverbs 3:5 , and not trusting God with all our heart and Not relying on our insight,
but in fact, yes trusting in our insight with all our heart and NOT RELYING on our Lord. RIGHT there in meetings.....let alone afterwards in Havant Macdonalds!!!

What we are saying is the entire charismatic movement has been running on a two string gospel.
It has not known about... or if it has, it has not acted on the message of the Two Goats:

the unknown, unheralded 2nd goat-
The next problem for God is, without resurrecting the first goat, how do you get over that the MAN OF SIN, the SIN PRINCIPLE, the INDWELLING BIAS to SIN, is left behind in hell, by a now empty Body of Jesus after the death on the Cross, with its spirit container opened up, and emptied out in the manner of a rubbish lorry at a waste site, municiipal do you get that over to folk in the middle of a wilderness? Aha!

A second goat. This goat IS NOT to repeat the idea of sins being cast as far as the oceans away from you. You Pentecostals got that wrong.

No this is HUGE! This is what makes Church work! This is what makes Jews even want to come within smelling distance of the tragedy known as Christian Church. This second goat, represents the UTTER annhilation of your sin spirit at your spirit centre. You are a container for spirit, and you have a soul and a body. Your soul and your body have to catch up with what just happened.

Psalm 131 describes a people weaned from a life that is self-centered. That is always clamoring for that sense of greatness, specialness, me-ness. Now here's the irony that evangelicals wont tell you....they just stop at the negative and kind of leave you depressed. Well if evangelicals bothered to actually go the whole way with the Cross and come out the other side they would be able to tell you that this "clamoring for that sense of greatness, specialness, me-ness," is itself an electrical shortcircuit. As we connect with the One Life that is God,
He at our centre shows us how we were always planned to be. We can't be any more central to His plans for us. His plans through us. His plans in the Earth. All His Godness in us. All we had planned for ourselves was something like a Madame Tussauds stuffed version.

With a "single eyed" gospel we ONLY see God going on. What we don't "see", we don't do.

For eleven years now I have road-run this third level gospel right through a 2nd level church again. I have only spoken as the Spirit has given me utterance. He certainly , in the main hasn't given me liberty to go back into worshipleading, or any of the creative stuff I find natural to my personality. Within the context of 2ndlevel believing, yet with a sense of a thirst for more, in other words a church in transition, I have prophesied as I've been given stuff to share, and I've shared small snippets in a more relaxed way for no more than a few minutes. I have seen with my own eyes the effect of "breaking into" the apparent flow of a secondlevel meeting to bring more of the Presence of God, and what Ed Miller would call real flow.

The girls in Havant worship group were too young for the worship group 30 years ago in Emsworth, although they were in the meetings. But time and again Ed would allow us to rattle on for half an hour so, then without much ado, would quietly restart the meeting. We thought we were flowing. We were like those piano strings, wanting to be tuned to "what felt right" with no beating vibrations....only to be stopped short and retuned to heaven. Those who walk uprightly have an internal circumcision that is a product of months and years of right believing. Of "right internal seeing".

So both Ed Miller and Jack Schisler who had walked in many many waves of revival over localities and nations, would quietly sing some simple song of theirs like
Holy Spirit, You are welcome in this place, Holy Spirit you are welcome in this place,
Omnipotent Father of mercy and grace,
You are welcome in this place."

or a song from the past like :
Turn your eyes upon Jesus
Look Him full in the Face
And the things of Earth will grow strangely dim
In the Light of His wonder and Grace.

And heaven would fall.


Charismatics don't know who is living their life. They wander in and out. I addressed our leaders on this many weeks ago and sure enough. They said with their own mouths they are two peas in a pod rattling around. Christ and them. Or them and the old man. And there's a continuous struggle.
Put worship in this framework and they have to spend yea long "getting into the Presence of God" What actually happens is by necessity of their "wrong seeing", when you seek to come in with real flow, it seems to them jarring...unnatural. Like tuning a perfect octave. Until they start seeing how the true Christ operates, the whole irony that they accuse us of, is theirs...they cannot "see beyond their self-effort"
their attainments
their struggles to enter and maintain the Presence of God.
Well ofcourse, David and the New cart episode showed what happens when we try to "maintain God", specially over a bumpy bit. Uzzah died.

The sad truth is if Andrew Elmes extends his present octave it will be a soul-winning evangelism machine with as many walking straight through the back door as come in. If Havant extend their current octave, as Peter has been doing all through Spain and some of the States, while he knows how to take some of the Presence of God with Him and get people attuned to this in measure, without the full "3 string" gospel he will continually hit on leadership problems and pyramid church structures and "putting out fires". I have for this reason refused to have anything to do with his ministry outside of our locality until he recognises what I am doing amongst them. If that does not occur, I feel confident that the same Holy Spirit who has joined me to similar "seers" on the net, can do so in the real world, and that He has a place for me somewhere in what He is bringing together.

The Third level Gospel produces a Pure Octave which can then be reproduced.
While ever people are tuning themselves to "Christ and", to "2 peas in a pod", to enjoying quiet fellowship with Jesus in Simon's house.....
we have to be like those friends who make a hole in Simon's neat roof, his neat religious ceiling,his religious restrictions, in order to let a cripple down in front of Jesus, in order that we have a "true meeting" of God's energy and Power.

I introduced 2 people to Havant recently and both were blown out the other side after only a few weeks. It boiled down to Christianity by committee. You see if you don't know who you are, you have to fall back on "Christ and."
Peter was talking about leadership and how much things have altered since his Brethren days, and especially now in regard to letting women minister alongside men in equal fashion, something a lot of people do not agree on.

According to my gospel, and the one I see in the New Testament, leaders are only there to facilitate the tuning procedure inside every born again believer. To lead them to their own True source of tuning according to Psalm 19 in the beginning of this series. To impart by means of Word the New Covenant in His Blood to every child of God.
They are not there to "lead them".
They are not there to derive benefit from the believers. Leaders are "made eunuchs" for the sake of the Kingdom of God.
Leaders should flow with you in the local "octave" of the Body.
If these two people I have mentioned feel excluded from our local octave....guess who has to change? And it's not the people. They will change anyway as they learn Christ as them. Shepherds hunt after the 1 that leaves the 99. Charismatic shepherds do not. Charismatic shepherds are paid anyway. It's bad for their productivity to go after the one and be like Jesus.

The truth is the 2nd level gospel of the "Holy Spirit" out at arms length and a separate "you" that is 2 peas in a pod, does not work. It can never create a true octave. You always end up manipulating the last bit that just won't bend into shape.

The Truth about the 3rd level Octave.

The truth about the 3rd level form of octave formed as we not only meet, but live together in the Name of Jesus, and He lives in and amongst us is even more fantastic still. (*$)
Unlike a piano octave, which sounds brilliant enough, the Body of Christ is dynamic.It has its own life which is released proactively when the psalm 133 dynamic of unity occurs. Note, this dynamic only occurs after the Psalm 131 weaning stage. Until people know they are Christ in their form, and have identified their inner seeing with this truth for a good period, you can forget the sort of line up God has planned in psalm 133.
This anointing brings Blessing and Overflow, yes to the group concerned, but God is always looking over His shoulder to see who He can bless through you. Who can He tune this octave too next?
Good Soil
Like anyone raised in Sunday school on the Parable of the Sower I used to see each soil type as representative of a type of person. And this is probably the first meaning. But the Holy Spirit has been showing me recently that it is also a parable arc of our one life. It is the story of how God gets us to be good soil. Really everything Rich Novek is currently writing is unearthing every bit of wrong seeing on our insides. If we allow God to strip out of our Ezekiel 8 temple Walls which is situated somewhere above the reality of Christ at our inner centre and somewhere below our conscious thinking, hidden away programming our days and weeks, if we see God only in this place, we will have this good soil.

We don't need to import anymore soil. God made us with perfect soil. It is just strewn with generations of stones, hardnesses,a lifetimes wrong seeing, of God......AND.....stuff. The disciples asked how do we get more faith? Jesus then began a bit of an alarming tale of servants first working a shattering day out in the field....then if that wasn't enough, he has them still stand and wait on Him until He is satisfied....then they get to the bit the disciples asked Him about.....

But after all this bleakness, in which they get to see ONLY GOD
by then their soil is pure.
"Unite my heart to fear Thy Name"
And the natural gift of the soil is to produce a harvest easily.
We've been travelling 200miles to make one convert and we make them as disease ridden in their soil, as confused in their "seeing" as we are.
That's why the third level gospel is so good and why the charismatic/pentecostal one hasn't been really working.
We felt we needed to add to it...
Pyramid structures ... New Frontiers, Salt and Light, Pioneer ministries.
we had to have a leadership tier because evidently the sheep dont feed themselves. Evidently they dont after you've made them sick with the gospel of Jesus AND.....
Selwyn Hughes Counselling Add ons.For the Individual Christian who was never properly built into an octave in the first place, now experiencing total fragmentation. Wonder why?

True octaves work
You dont have to keep manipulating them. Bodies of Christ (read the tin label) are not like piano strings. The genuine ones at least are self-tuning. The leaders don't have to do much. Poor things , they have to do what Paul did and go and open up fresh territories rather than spend 30 years in one locality producing no self-sustaining ministries.
It is stunning how fast the true gospel works as we read in the Bible compared with the lumpen UK charis asthmatic version we have.

We reproduce Christ in us as us. The knowledge of how we tune ourselves to Him both individually and as groups. It is real. It is not fake. It is Spirit reality. Once there, we move on. People dont need us. They have been established in their own ability to hear.

Not dragons over there but Romans 8 setting Creation Free Glory
Charismatic leaders are trained to preserve their tithing rights by keeping their flock in fear what will happen if they step out from the "covering". Well 23 years ago i was thrown out of the 2nd level and thrown out of "covering", and every day of every year since a dragon has eaten me for breakfast and spewn me out again so he can eat me the next day........NOT

The covering lie is a lie.
The truth is as we live Christ as us we are covered by Christ, He joins us to His Body as He alone knows how. If one section rejects us, we are knitted in with others who are walking in His purposes. But the final most glorious thing which you won't believe about these God octaves is they send creation freeing ripples out into their environment.

The secular world since the Fall has a had a huge disconnect from its surroundings. It poo poos the very idea that man is connected to his surroundings. The Word says different. Righteousness exalts a nation. A nation feels better to live in with an abundance of righteousness kicking around.

But as the Transformations series of DVDs show whole environments change. The third level gospel, this one that through Christ's death,burial and resurrection processes ends up in Romans 8 onwards type of intercessory living has fantastic unbelievable 3D effects. We become connected with our surroundings again! I saw a prototype of this with my very own eyes at Darmstadt's Community of Mary when I was only 16, when I went to learn from Mother Basilea Schlink about this third level gospel.

Saints, you don't have to fake the gospel. The real one moulds everything around you!!! And to such an octave, everyone will be attracted to tune!
