Imagine - The Third Level Version.


Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today...

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...
You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...
You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

 Third Level   Annotations...
Imagine there's no separation from heaven as lived now, with Christ living as us, from a future heaven where all we do is relocate bodily, or receive new bodies in the crowning triumph of Christ's completed work.
Imagine no more dread of hell or separation, because the Knowledge of the Glory of God covers the earth as the waters cover the seas. No more Genesis 3 lies about an evil Father who is holding out on us, but only the knowledge that God has always been mad on us, has always been for us. Even when sin did occur, He initiated the questioning with such pain in His heart(Adam where are you?)...because He felt the separation more dreadfully than even we did. And straight away He'd arranged a temporary covering for us that involved other parts of creation dying in our stead, until the one true covering came, that would cover every single transgression that ever was or ever will be, namely after sending His Son to die in our place.
Imagine all people everywhere only living in the Now of heaven again, not frittering their lives away in remorse at what might have been, not hoping feebly in some never never land promise of what might still be, because everyone is 100% consumed in what Christ is operating through them now, fully AS THEM, and IN THEIR FORM...... knowing  
"No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him"--
Imagine there's no countries with separate allegiances, separate competing agendas, only groups of diverse originality to contribute to the whole. The former need to fragment nations at Babel is no more, because the mindless drunkenness that comes from a humankind deluded and fixated in the utter lie that a separate existence from the Life of God could ever occur, and which corporately had such a false power and lying energy that literally any wild plan that could be thought up, could virtually be accomplished....but would drag the future further and further into its black hole of godlessness, duplicity, faithlessness.... All this need for fragmentation has now disappeared in the third level knowledge that Life, true Life, has a Cross in it. True life is sacrificial. It is self for others.In this knowledge is true freedom, which needs no corporate fragmentation.

Imagine no religion. Only Life. That form of pasty replica of true relationship with the One Living One who always existed. The formats that replicated themselves as Law Rulebooks. The manifestations of all fake imitations of the One who spoke time and space creation into being. Whether the millionfold Hindu dreams, the fake Jewish and Christian dreamery, the Allah concept,the Sikh,the Krishna imageries....the twisted confusion of Masonry ,witchcraft,druidery....the pagan ideal of a Lucifer, a Light bearing Messiah...who is no Messiah for he leaves mankind in their sins and only demands absolute slavery and mindless worship...

All these images, dreams,philosophies disappearing like morning fog before the reality of humans
Living in the One True Father,in whom dwells Jesus,In whom dwells the Holy Spirit,In which agape community the God tabernacled mankind find their home and their true identity...

not rehearsing endlessly 5 pillars of wisdom, Christian services where one figure paid by tithe speaks at you,books of laws of desperate attempts to find oneness with their god, their deity, their image made in likeness to man....

All this  shrivelled to nothing before a Living New Covenant written across the chests of living beings totally in love with the God that they know, they love they touch. No more buildings, for they ARE the buildings. No more to be added, because Christ is the Cornerstone, 
He is the capstone with the two cries  of Grace,Grace to it!
Grace of forgiveness, of realignment
Grace of complete Union, complete identity rediscovered.
Imagine there's no possessions...
or better still, what John Lennon couldn't himself live 
like in Acts 4:32-33
All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had.
So they had possessions....but weren't claiming them as solely their own.
Anyone who has lived in marxist communities
or Christian communities knows that if no one claims ownership, all
possessions resemble the Council Houses here in Leigh Park which are rented but not owned. No one takes responsibility or pride in them for their maintenance. Someone wrote "Ownership is theft"....But the truth is "Non-ownership is destruction."
You cannot be in one heart and mind with other people who are themselves still fragmented. Our own personal Unity comes within the One who is One. God is One. God is Love.God never Lies. And God remains both always the same BUT always Filled to the Brim with Newness of Life. A Community that is tucked up in this identity will find it easy to share possessions as any has need. Not even John Lennon could do this.

Imagine a brotherhood of man. "The brotherhood of man makes no sense without a Fatherhood".
At the moment put one man with fears alongside another man with fears and they will make up a brotherhood alright. They will yield up to one another things that are sacred and should never be yielded up. But fearful men and women cannot help themselves. So communities are formed locked in fear.
So when you try to help an African community, you discover many doors that you have to pass your aid through....and it is not simply a matter of bypassing those doors, because you see at a fundamental level that African has yielded certain rights over himself and his community that should never have been shared. And so it is too in the West. So it is in China.
And for this reason Babylon remains....a world of fragmented nations trying desperately to unify....but the Union on the INSIDE has never been sorted.

But I believe in the third Level of growth. 
I believe in God tabernacling with His people.
I believe in Psalm 133.
I don't imagine this. I have lived it. For long enough periods to know it is on its way, though I see only a cloud the size of a man's hand....
I see in my spirit already the DOWNPOUR.

Psalm 133

A song of ascents. Of David.
 1 How good and pleasant it is
   when God’s people live together in unity!
 2 It is like precious oil poured on the head,
   running down on the beard,
running down on Aaron’s beard,
   down on the collar of his robe.
3 It is as if the dew of Hermon
   were falling on Mount Zion.
For there the LORD bestows his blessing,
   even life forevermore.
