Brokenness II

If you are used to the traditional stuff on brokenness you will find this continuation of the study quite shocking. 

But what is it you are looking for?  To be a grand master on the writings of Church Fathers who only got so far, or do you want the truth of God inside your very being?

Do you want to conform to all the seminaries, and consequently now all the Jesuit and esoteric and Kaballist groups that have stolen every Word of God previously written from out of the sanctuary, and then cobbled together great Luciferian treatise (s) on the difference between :

The Knowledge of Good and Evil


The Tree of Life?

Or do you want that simple walk in Jesus Christ spontaneously living your life in an authentic and unique way that is God "causing you to walk in the steps that He prepared beforehand"?

Perhaps you should pause right there, because of John 7
17 If anyone is willing to do His will, he will know of the teaching, whether it is of God or whether I speak from Myself. 18 He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory; but He who is seeking the glory of the One who sent Him, He is true, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.

Put that the other way round.   If you are reading this for any personal agenda.  Material to preach from, to write books from, to earn tithes from.  Some attemot at peering over the hedge of God's Kingdom, just as the Jesuits operate, then you shall not "get this" teaching.

Jesus says I am the Door.  The thief enters round the back?

Where is round the back?  It is in the leftbrain.  The leftbrain tries to reason up to the life of God.
The doorway to God in you is in your spirit.  The leftbrain is a thief. it does not want personal involvement with Christ, because it knows instinctively that it's entire "Control Bibble" will be ripped open and shown to be the total scam that it is.

There is no selfpowered soul, or selfpowered mind.

We live from Life itself, which is either now a derived life source, via our Adamic inheritance, of "fake independence" which is really the Satan spirit operating and masquerading as us....

OR we come fully into the LIGHT
the SINGLE AGAPE EYE of God and see He is the sole source of everything....

actually, theologically speaking of Satan's life too.   Satan twists God's own empowering life round from being self for others, to a form that is self for self....but actually the power, the drive still comes from the sole Source of the Universe.   (Take this more slowly here by reading Yes I Am by Norman Grubb)


I take issue with those of Facebook and in modern studies who claim the Old Covenant is not accurate.
Shellfish can still easily kill you.
And bacteria can still hide in the folds of the skin of the penis to bring about longterm damage in a male or their spouse, unless cleanliness is taken seriously. Circumcision was not only a sign, it was also a prevention.

If you know how the Holy Spirit moves in meetings of Christian believers you can see all the same hallmarks on all the scriptures we use.  The same dealings with men and women. The same patterns in how the Holy Spirit introduces people to the ways and the character of God.

Yet many times on this blog I have pointed out how God has scratched His head to know how to present Spirit truth before a people was truly able to be caught up in the Spirit, as was made available after Jesus death , resurrection and pouring out the Holy Spirit as He had promised.

You have the Two Goats conundrum....now in the Spirit, there was only need for One Jesus....but this was the old Covenant

In Ezekiel 47 you have Ezekiel presenting the idea of the River of God's Spirit coming from the Throne of God in such a way as a "person brought up in separation" since Genesis 3 can understand it.

In actual Spirit fact the prophecy is nonsense, as is a lot of charismatic prophecy today.


this is why the gospel calls all men everywhere to repentance....

Not because God thinks it might be nice to have some friends and He is lonely....

It's because there is no such thing as secular life
there is no such thing as living independently as gods.....it just doesn't exist
and if anybody tries it....proverbs chapter 1 tells you what happens

Basically your life crashes !!!!!!

So YES.....there is an Old Covenant version of brokenness
which featured a real encounter between God/the Angel   and Jacob wrestling until Dawn....

Or King David's experiences  AFTER being anointed with oil as King in his youth....and yes I do connect with this man !!!!!!

Brokenness, like today to a certain extent, is God using real life experiences to form a godly character....
OR.....perhaps, like a wood sculptor to strip off the superfluous to leave the authentic creation as God always intended.

Watchman Nee was writing in transitional days, and he used the phrase an enlarged soul.
He said this to describe the way our soul life is now not only God going on....it is enlarged.

If we are going to use that picture we must imagine a "useless expansion" of quirky growth in the way that cancer cells utterly distort our bodies with tumerous outgrowths that end by killing us.

In this way, you would think of us taking up our Cross to see these "falsely enlarged bits of tumerous Adamic outgrowth die."


Brokenness in the New Covenant is something different.

Since before the Creation the Word always existed....long before Satan even rebelled, or was even created.  The Word who became manifest in human form as Jesus Christ was always going to be the Cornerstone of the Temple, the Living Temple of  God indwelt ones.
As we saw with Adam, it was always going to be a CHOICE to put on the Tree of Life,
to want to connect with God...

God has always wanted a Bride, a Counterpart like Himself, that chooses to give and receive love, to enter into Union with Himself.

Sin mightily "upped the ante" so that at one level we live in a precarious time space world where we don't know for sure that  when "Christ returns He shall find faith in the Earth". The jeapardy is probably there precisely to avoid Calvinists and Preterists folding their arms, buying pina coladas and sitting on deckchairs waiting for God's bus to arrive.

We walk in godly fear. The Son of Man was heard for His godly fear, His cries of supplication, which always seems weird in first and secondlevel Christian situations....because thinking in terms of separation.....Jesus down here who is nevertheless Christ, and God up there....

It seems weird that God the Man in praying to God the Father....

But that is actually one of the ways we have to change our thinking about brokenness.
Ps 40
waited [a]patiently for the Lord;

And He inclined to me and heard my cry.
He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the [b]miry clay,
And He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm.
He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God;
Many will see and fear
And will trust in the Lord.

Now we DO know Jesus as Saviour and Redeemer
But in Union like Jesus we now enter into something mindbendingly awesome, as is now being revealed in our natural sciences.....


Brokenness is now a STATE.   It is true we come in through the Blood of Jesus our Saviour, but He sweeps us up onto a Rock that is higher than I.

He sweeps us up to a totally new ontological reality. That of being a co LIVING STONE in His Temple, in His purposes.

Jesus crying out loud cries was this new reality we too have been put in.
Bringing things forth by the power of the Spirit.
How does it work????

Romans 8 shows us how it works.
26 In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; 27 and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the [j]saints according to the will of God.

During the time of the Cross "it appeared" that God had abandoned Jesus at the Cross.
Jesus cried out "My God why have you forsaken Me?"
Psalm 22 prophecies this experience.

In reality, that is in this true realm of Spirit.....GOD was instead INSIDE the forsakenness....RECONCILING THE WORLD TO HIMSELF.

THIS is intercession.

Jesus describes it  to King David this way in Psalm 40
Sacrifice and meal offering You have not desired;
My ears You have [e]opened;
Burnt offering and sin offering You have not required.
Then I said, “Behold, I come;
In the scroll of the book it is [f]written of me.
I delight to do Your will, O my God;
Your Law is within my heart.”
The author to the Hebrews seems to quote from an earlier text than the Masoretic text and quotes all this

Sacrifice and offering You have not desired,
But a body You have prepared for Me;
In whole burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You have taken no pleasure.
Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come
(In the scroll of the book it is written of Me)
To do Your will, O God.’”

After saying above, “Sacrifices and offerings and whole burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You have not desired, nor have You taken pleasure in them” (which are offered according to the Law), then He [d]said, “Behold, I have come to do Your will.” He takes away the first in order to establish the second.

St Paul writes in the same fashion in Romans 12. 1-2

Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, [a]acceptable to God, which is your [b]spiritual service of worship. 2 And do not be conformed to this [c]world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may [d]prove what the will of God is, that which is good and [e]acceptable and perfect.

Why therefore???
on account of all the other tremendous teachings f Romans 1 to 11 being so already....these are the "mercies" the "grace tools" that make everything in Romans 12: 1-2 work.

Back to Romans 8

For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, [i]in hope 21 that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now. 23 And not only this, but also we ourselves, having the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our body. 24 For in hope we have been saved, but hope that is seen is not hope; for who hopes for what he already sees? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we wait eagerly for it.

So yes Jesus was making loud groaning noises, as a Son....
To enter into Union with God is to enter immediately into the operations He is performing right now...
revealed by the Spirit.....sometimes initially just groans too deep for words, very similar to a woman in labour.

Hod has desired BODIES to bring forth His Word
His purposes and plans.

This is the subtle difference between the "orphan idea" of worship
the orphan idea of brokenness

and the LIVING THING that Jesus was engaged in when He lived His life here, and that He now catches up His whole Body in by the Spirit to complete His work of raising a mature man.

Like the key phrase in Ephesians 4 which says....when each part is working properly....
the "brokenness" of Romans 12 and a yielded life has more to do with our knowledge of the mercies of God...if we don't know what God has done we can mope and groan and grouse and grovel as much as we like....this isn't brokenness...this is religion...this is orphanhood.

The REAL THING is where people have been enlightened according to these sorts of phrases in Ephesians 1

15 For this reason I too, having heard of the faith in the Lord Jesus which exists among you and [u]your love for all the [v]saints, 16 do not cease giving thanks for you, while making mention of you in my prayers;17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the [w]knowledge of Him. 18 I pray that the eyes of your heart [x]may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the [y]saints, 19 and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might 20 which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. 22 And He put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as head over all things to the church, 23 which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.

We can only RISK giving our bodies to God to manifest through when we have experienced some sessions of Him coming through us...
maybe in times of need
maybe in the baptism in the Spirit
maybe in our church life together...

then also based on what we know inwardly and what has been revealed to our inner eyes...

then we are going to feel like taking more of a risk...because we see inwardly it isn't a risk......

But it is these sort of "Freefallers" that God is looking for Romans 12.1-2 who will PROVE what the will of God is....Namely to bring forth His Kingdom His Word made manifest through physical forms...you and me...the church...

so that the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known through the church to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenly places.

Back to the flower:
The flower is perhaps a better representation of our brokenness...

it is totally intact now
it may or may not be weak, but there is nothing in it that shouldn't be there
just as it is it is manifesting the glory of God
it is not being religious and pinning a christian badge to it
it is not trying to "do anything " Christian
It is living exactly as it was meant and purposed

But we are in another reality...we are in the Temple of the Lord.
We are the Body of the Living Christ on earth.
Now as Paul says in Corinthians
I can't address you as mature...one says he is of Peter, one of Apollos and one of Paul

Also (Chapter 12) what you are doing is just sticking together in cliques
if someone is an eye they are saying to the leg, because you are not an eye I have no need of you.

This is the state of the immature church. In reality all churches, because there are no churches on earth yet that have Father level people as groups of elders flowing together in this "brokenness"...or "Christ cornerstone Life " that I have described. There are ones and twos who move individually as did Ed Miller, Corrie Ten Boom, Pastor Wurmbrand...but not inside local churches in geographical areas and recognised as such by local communities.

We only have zero, first and secondlevellers who are caught up in their "LEG" groups or "Arm groups " or "Eye groups".

FINALLYto summarise and bash the nail further in.

Because Genesis 3 was always a lie.
Because there really only ever was one source of life in the Universe.
Because UNITY is a fact, as real in our bodies own homeostasis, as it is actually in the Body Of Christ
Because there is only one faith one Lord one baptism...
Because we see with a single eye God going on in His Universe to bring about the completion of all His plans through His Son...

I will flow with every other person walking in this "brokenness"
or Just Christ as me ness....no more no less....no additions no subtractions to whatever Jesus Christ is doing in us and through us now.

Now we had an introduction to this in Spirit led meetings.
As we have received Jesus we were to walk in Him....and the first ways we did this was practicing "gathering in His Name" in meetings...
and we have to guard this Unity of the Spirit UNTIL we come into the unity of the faith.

But you can't come into total unity while each individual has squinty eyes
or not a single eye (in internal terms)
David said
OK Lord...I'll tell you what....UNITE MY HEART TO FEAR THE LORD. PSALM 86.11

We have whole churches of squinty eyed people whose inner eyes are focussed all over the place....there is no way we can even get one united church having the shambolic level of Light we have been operating in so far.

In Revelation 12 it says about the true church....a woman with a face shining like the sun, with the moon under her feet.

At the moment thirdlevel living is unknown
every single church member across the face of the whole earth still thinks "separation existence is a valid way to live and operate"....and that living this MOON or "reflected" way of life, where we never actually fuse with God the Father properly....and take on His SUN Life...His Original direct Source Life flow....

continuing in this fashion makes "Jesus is coming soon " a laughing stock.
The devil hears our words but sees our MOON Masques like some Anonymous Venetian Ball....

What He is scared of is being chased off the Earth by a woman with the Face as the Sun.
