My third level trek
Some of what we learn is by direct revelation, some is Word through God's ways with others. Some we, like Ruth and Boaz, have sensed the Holy Spirit to "go up by night and get".
Today is Ben's first ever national exam GCSE. 44 years ago I was 12 and got 11 A's in school.....but having achieved and it brought no change whatsoever......didn't make me feel better.....and didn't buy me more or.less favour with my Dad.....I kind of divebombed into questioning everything and fell into deep depression. I left my Methodist distant God and my language and behaviour was totally perverse. My born again school
friend needles me for.a year.....so I.went eventually to hear Billy Graham in films being shown in an Amersham outreach centre. Later in Chesham Bois in another Big Bible.study for youth on Romans my little ex Methodist eyes couldn't believe what I was seeing. In an era of Jimi Hendrix and Courts of the Crimson King and national power strikes.....all these teens were praying unashamed and studying by candlelight as the power was off. That touched me.deeply. Then they said there was going to be a Holy Spirit teach in day.......
So yes.....I was born again and baptised in the Spirit and I'd like to say I've raised up a great ministry throughout England and Europe.
And yes I preached into my posh Dr Challenors school at 13. And yes the head boy even became a Christian......and yes.....those that survived school are now elders up and down Britain....
But I got myself Schlinked.....
At 16 I went with other mixed youth to the sisters of Mary in Darmstadt fresh from the Grace outpouring in the London housechurches except Mother Basilea Schlink wasn't there. For four weeks she was away in prayer having heard that Mao was assembling his troops to begin an attack on Europe. Read Jung Chang. God used Basilea in the same way He had used Rees Howells with the three War dictators, and she paralysed Mao's advance. He never again made another move until his death. Basilia returned a bit like Moses from the mountain. She delivered two talks that blasted me out of my own generation. It was pure third level light. Talk 1 was......Go the way of the Lamb it is a way of Great Power.
This talk was nothing less than the little understood 12th Gate of Jerusalem......the prison gate......describing the no holds barred body intercession of Romans 12.1 and psalm 110....which is totally thirdlevel stuff.
Talk no. 2 was......seek the Face of the God of Jacob as at Peniel.....psalm 24 and Genesis 32.
In other words.....the mechanics of how you get into third level operation.
Now obviously as a 16 year old I couldn't explain any of this had they listened.....to John Noble or Gerald Coates or Dave Mansell......who were really otherwise our then current UK gurus....
But one thing I had experienced was being with a woman who had just possibly stopped another World.War and who had spoken in such Spirit authority to us youngsters......our souls had literally been cleft in two by God's Lightning.
I couldn't articulate it.....but it was clear my life was something about carrying the thirdlevel back into the world church. Christianity doesn't really actually work properly outside the thirdlevel. That's where Jesus lived. It's not just anointing....or.else Jesus wouldn't have said.....many will say to me Lord Lord....I cast out demons in your Name.....and I will.say....but I never Knew You.
And 1 John 2 Father level Christianity is precisely this......knowing Him who is.from the beginning.
But as a first and secondleveller still in separation from the bad old.days of Genesis 3......you think in terms of emotional Presence....or signs....which is of course.part of the package.....but like in Bethel or IHOP.....you forever cry.....more Lord More Lord.....without knowing you are booking an appointment with a steam roller. If you'd only shut up a minute God will swing into action. He heard you the first time. All that is necessary for.life and godliness is actually within you......namely His own DNA.....you can't miss it.....only if you harden your heart in the day of testing....and go back into unbelief. What first and secondlevellers don't get is that after God has sat on you.....you are fused.
You feel lucky to be still alive.....
In the words of the psalms.....66 I think.....all men have ridden over my head....
You can't help.feeling circumcised
That you are marked
Isaiah 53 says.....there is nothing about how you look .....but you are a shoot appearing out from nowhere in a parched wasteground.
You don't do this stuff. You can't do this stuff. You just go the Way of the Lord and He writes His stuff in you. The true church will.recognise where you have been. Everybody else will look for certificates and tassels and won't find any and just walk past you. Isn't it amazing that probably the greatest work in the English language in the twentieth century is still hardly known for the simple.reason that God called Norman Grubb onto the mission field 2 months before his final Cambridge exams. Now, the only people reading his books are people hungry for God.....and especially his final book "Yes I Am." Which is the final treatise on individual thirdlevel revelation, whereas the church blueprint is George H Warnock 1950 Feast of Tabernacles. Mother Basilea Schlink taught on how Romans 6 and 7 works. And Ed Miller used to take churches through and found that some way into the journey sequence in the Spirit there was a Gate 9 open day.....the Jerusalem Eastern Gate.....Revival.....the Jewish Feast that was a component of the third great last Feast of Tabernacles.....called the Feast of In Gathering.
So no.......my hidden generation has not leapt into Terry Virgos shoes.....nor been knocking on the door of Bill Johnson so he can now.retire....
No...like the Angel speaking back to Joshua when he asked.if we.we're on his side or not.....
To Benny Hinn, Morris Cerullo, Bill Johnson, Kenneth Copeland.....to all the "young men breed" of anointing and victory and prosperity Isaacs..... we say......No
No? To a yes no question????
Indeed....we are not in your thing. You can be in ours. But one greater than an evangelical is here. One greater than a charismatic is here.
This Move operates out of thirdlevel fusion. THIS STUFF IS THE ANTIDOTE TO THE GENESIS 3 LIE.
THIS IS THE SEED OF THE SON HIMSELF.
THIS IS WHAT CHRISTIANITY IS!!!!!!
You can look at my path like that of Judah and discount me. Genesis.28 is a bad chapter. But God raised Judah as the preeminent tribe of praise and Jesus came out of Judah. This may not look good to all of you.....but this is what God taking a heart and making it His looks like.
I greet you on the date of my birth!!!!.
Here are the clear BIBLICAL Teachings regarding growth in Christ
The Three Levels of Maturity
I John 2:12-14
“ I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for His name sake.”
“ I write unto you, little children, because you have known the Father.”
Why do we need our sins forgiven? And how can we know the Father?
The Fall Of Man.
Result Of The fall:
John 3:19-21-“Light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light.”
Romans 3:10-18-“There is none good, no not one.”
Eph. 2:1-3 “Dead in trespasses and sins,” “the spirit that works in the children of disobedience” and “they were by nature children of wrath.”
Acts 13:46-“Judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life.”
I John 3:10-“Children of the devil.”
John 8:44- “you are of your father the devil.”
Rom. 6:17-“Slaves of sin.”
I Peter 3:19-“Spirits in prison.”
Romans 9:23-“Vessels of wrath.”

II Cor. 5:19-“To wit, that God was in Christ Jesus reconciling the world unto Himself.”
Col. 1:14-“Through His blood, even the forgiveness of sins.”
Romans 3:24-25-“Justified freely by his grace, through faith in his blood.”
I Peter 1:18-20-“Redeemed by the precious blood of Christ.”
Heb. 10:12-“One sacrifice for sins forever.”
How is Christ Made Mine?
John 1:12-“As many as receive Him to them gave he power to become the sons of God.”
Acts 16:31-“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shall be saved.”
Titus 3:15-“Not by works of righteousness which I have done but according His mercy He saved me.”
Romans 3:24-“Being justified freely by His grace through Christ’s redemption.”
Romans 3:28-“A man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.”
Eph. 2:8-9-“For by grace you are saved, through faith.”
Romans 10:9-“Confess with your mouth, and believe in your heart, you shall be saved.”
How Can I Have The Assurance Of My Salvation?
Hebrews 4:9-10-“There remains a rest, labor to enter in.”
Hebrews 11:6-“For without faith it is impossible to please God.”
The Three Levels of Maturity
I John 2:12-14
“I write unto you, young men, because you have overcome the wicked one.”
“I have written unto you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the wicked one.”
How do we overcome the wicked one? Our sins are forgiven, but how about victory over sin, Satan, the works of the flesh, and the world?
Victory And Power In Daily Living
Romans 5:10-We are reconciled to God, by His death, but saved daily by His life.
Eph. 3:19-“That you might be filled with all the fullness of God.”

Romans 6:7-“He that is dead is freed from sin.”
Romans 6:14-“Sin shall not have dominion over you for you are under grace.”
I Cor. 15:56-“The power of sin is the law.”
How Does This Work Out As Our Experience?
Romans 7:15-“For that which I do I allow not: for what I would that do I not; but what I hate, that I do.”
Romans 7:24-“O wretched man that I am who shall deliver me from the body of this death?
Why Do We Experience the Bondages and Defeats of Romans 7?
Because not having completely learned, or easily forgetting, the basic helplessness of self, and its only function to be the container of the Spirit, we are constantly assaulted by temptation to be something or do something or not do something. Obey those commands pray more, give more witness more, be more patient, don’t lose your temper, get rid of those evil thoughts, struggle against your lusts, and so on.
The human being is only a receiver and not a producer of righteousness.
John 15:1-You are the branch, not the vine.

I John 3:10-“Child of the devil, child of God.”

The Leap Of Faith
Colossians 3:3-4-“Christ, who is my life.”
Galatians 5:24-“In Christ we have crucified the flesh.”
Romans 6:6-“The Old self is crucified with Christ.”
Colossians 3:9 ; Eph. 22-24-“You have put off the old man with His deeds.”

Matt. 11:28-29-“There is a rest for our souls.”

Mark 11:22-“Have the faith of God, say unto this mountain be thou removed and cast into the sea. And whatsoever you say, you shall have.”
Romans 4:17-“Call the things that be not as though they are.”
( Nothing in this life is yours)
Luke 14:26-27—“Hate not his father, mother, wife, children, brethren & his own life.”

Hebrews 11-The great heroes of faith.
The Three Levels of Maturity
I John 2:12-14
“I have written unto you, Fathers, because you have know Him, that is from the beginning.” Our life is poured out for others.
John 21:18-“Another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou would not.”
Credentials of an Apostle
John 10:17-18-“Why does the Father love me?” “Because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.” “I have power to lay it down and I have power to take it up again.”
Hebrews 5:14-“He that is full of age has their senses exercised to discern good and evil.”
I Corinthians 4:9-15-“God has set for the Apostles as last as it were appointed to death,” “We are fools for Christ sake, but you are wise, we are weak, we are despised,” “Being reviled, we bless, being persecuted we suffer it, being defamed, we retreat.” “We are made the filth of the world, and the off scouring of all things.”

II Corinthians 4:11-“For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.
