Everything in Creation waits upon the Dance of the Supercharge.
Even such a phrase is impertinent, for like New Age thought, it renders impersonal that which is extremely Personal, namely the Presence and Acts of a Personal Father God.
But in this blogpost we are going to look at this analogy as expressed in creation, in arts and prophetics, the Word of faith, and Church life.
I was raised a Methodist, and Methodists love that Sydney Carter song/hymn Lord of the Dance.
Here are some of the lyrics:
I danced in the morning when the world was begun
I danced in the Moon & the Stars & the Sun.........
I danced for the scribe & the pharisee
But they would not dance & they wouldn't follow me.......
I danced on the Sabbath & I cured the lame
The holy people said it was a shame!.......
I danced on a Friday when the sky turned black
It's hard to dance with the devil on your back........
They cut me down and I leapt up high
I am the Life that'll never, never die!
I'll live in you if you'll live in Me -
I am the Lord of the Dance, said He!
I actually hated this song, perhaps it was the way it was sung. But now I "get" it.
The whole Universe is dancing.
Everything in Creation is doing a loop de loop physically from quarks up to galaxies.
As we "see" more in the Spirit, as we extend the bandwidth of our perception it seems there is no spirit/material divide really just as formerly we realised there is no secular/spiritual divide.
The only "divide" is in our heart. And the dividing wall of hostility is broken down. There is no separation. The veil is permanently rent.
What Creation is, is a lattice, a framework, a playpen, for budding godlike beings to learn their craft of speaking Light into Darkness, of confessing Jesus as Lord before they see Jesus everywhere as Lord.
In our hearts we believe and with our mouths we confess that Jesus is risen from the dead.
In the mouths of babes and sucklings does God perfect His praise.
This lattice is described in Song of Solomon, and this Jesus Dancer, this Skipper on hills and Mountains, keeps bounding down to meet us where we are at, then bound off again, until such time that we are able to do the same.
He comes, and He draws us with kisses and love. He ravishes our hearts. We say, "Come back, I want more of that." Song of Songs 1
These verses aren't poetry...they are a forensic description of everything we have been feeling since we were first born again and baptised in His holy Spirit. It's the same thing that David felt, Moses felt, Ezekiel felt, St John felt. This is what it's really like being loved by Jesus.
One of the things Sydney Carter was articulating was the difference between Law, morality, the Tree of Good in the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil....is that JESUS IS NOT THAT.
He is NEVER the empty framework....even if it be the GOOD end of the framework....HE rather is the SUBSTANCE of the whole thing....FILLING EVERYTHING with HIS ALL. He is the TREE of LIFE. HE is the RIVER OF LIFE that flows from the Throne. HE IS the ONLY LIFE....literally the only life in the Universe. Even Satan's life is derived from this One Life. Apart from this one life Satan can do nothing. But Satan has lied to himself that he is independent, that he is his own life source, and into this lie he has wooed all fallen mankind. He has, it is true twisted God's life in on itself to make a self for self life, rather than God's pure source which is love poured out for others.
We don't understand the physics of this at present, but I received as revelation some time back that what DRIVES this creation at the smallest level, are things, be they particles, or whatever, that come from somewhere else and go somewhere else after they have impacted our atomic world. Some have labelled these Melchizedek particles. Jesus is such a priest. He came down from above....He is the ONLY God conceived, the ONLY God begotten Son of God. Adam was scooped up from the earth and breathed into.
Jesus came from the heavenlies, danced among us, took our Adamic order into death with Him and was raised all the while raising our whole condition in Him. We, by faith in Jesus, simply are nolonger of the Adamic order. And one day our flesh will prove that outwardly.
Adam died inwardly long before, hundreds of years before he died outwardly.
We are raised inwardly way before our body molecules respond outwardly.
But God woos us and forms us in a dance. Sometimes we are very conscious of Him, sometimes He is not perceptible to our senses. He is there though just as the sun is always there though obscured by thick grey cloud.
Some of our early relating with babies is to play peek a boo with them. Some of the early bonding revolves around the combined joy that we ARE in fact there for our children.
Now you could strap a baby up in a high chair, get out a whiteboard and "instruct " the baby about how you are committed to its welfare. Have you noticed that all the really important teaching we receive is in relationship and not left to the vagaries of leftbrain highschool learning.
What we really want to know having pitched up on this planet, not by our own volition at all, and surrounded by a whole anonymous sea of people like ourselves is....
What is my place in the world?
What is the plan for me?
Do I have significance?
Am I loved?
And guess what being cuddled by a mother teaches?
The first Adam was a lump of shapely formed clay, but inert, until God put His lips to Adam and breathed in His very Life.
The new Adam is inert. Lifeless. Only a lattice of belief. Of ideas. Of good intentions. Until we have a relationship with Our very Own Jesus. Allbeit that our very Own Jesus is the very same Jesus as everybody elses.....UNLESS....UNLESS....our Jesus is still partly an idol of our own mind and not in fact the REAL ONE. The real One has to work for all tribes of people types, nations, time periods, male , female, slave, free, intellectual or practically skilled....it's the same Jesus coming to kiss our lips. Wanting to fuse with us.
The phrase in the Bible for moving from inert state to SUPERCHARGE is waiting upon the Lord.
It is an active, expectant waiting based upon the myriad promises of God expressed right through the Bible.
Waiting upon means exchanging life forms. Adamic for Last Adam. My breath for His.
Waiting means entwining with. Entwining my DNA spiral around His DNA spiral.
It is exactly the same image in Hebrew as in the later Greek word for "hidden". My life is hidden with Christ in God. My spirit and God's spirit are so fused there is absolutely no way you , me or anyone can know where we start and He ends.
He has given many tools to access this Supercharge.
In the Old Testament the picture of the priests was that they walk 6 paces, with the Ark of the Covenant on their shoulders then on the 7th pace they rested and sacrificed to God.
The drawback with that picture, as Jesus showed, is that in the new thing He was bringing in there is no sabbath day of rest in the week so to speak.Many times He was still preaching. But in the new thing the Work of God becomes your food rest and replenishment. This is Life in the Supercharge. We watch what the Life of God is doing in us now....we go with the Dance....we go with the flow....
we can do no other, as Jesus said. I only do what I see my Father doing.
The whole of time twists. Jesus sought God up a mountain, and when the disciples who were still living in normal time had got into a boat to return, Jesus walked on the water to meet them.
Online we have been looking at the nature of church. We know how church is for those who are largely not born again from on high....or at least have not made that their present experience yet. We know how it is for those who have. We also know how church is for Spirit filled people...but ones who are very much comfortable still in their Song of Songs lattice....so what about the ones who are starting to skip on the mountains. What does that church look like? Well consider the gospels. Jesus with the disciples ministering from place to place.
Once you see church as temporary booths, as in the Jewish feast of the booths, you see them as gathering places for the purpose of WORD TRANSPLANTATION. The booth can be dismantled. Take different forms. What is PERMANENT and remains is solely WORD in the believers.
The PROOF of WORD is the harvest of LIVING LETTERS.
The form, the booth, is not the valuable commodity.
In the UK centuries of earnest believers saved and scrimped and laboured and built building after building that now litter the pavements of towns. Often derelict, or converted into rug shops, or mosques...or whatever
they are actually testimony to the half built tower of Christianity through 2000 years in the UK.
It's about LIVING LETTERS.
Supercharge can come by laying something down.
Laying down time to pray or meditate.
But in the third level these are now "subtools".
The big one is Romans 12:1-2 ....the offering of our whole bodies as continual living sacrifices....but not as the rest of the churches teach....as some noble effort and struggle. (I feel this when Lance Lambert preaches on these verses) NOPE.
Go back and do your homework.
The homework is all the other chapters of Romans beforehand.
If your death and resurrection in Jesus isn't real experience to you....you don't really "see " it yet....don't beat yourself up, just earnestly claim the promise of the Holy Spirit Guide to lead you into all truth....all Romans Truth. Do a catch up course. Then when you have got it in your faith, then you can approach Romans 12 properly.
How do we move out from the lattice AS CHURCHES?
Well, as individuals we have to change TREES.
If you are in the TREE OF LIFE you have already fused with the DANCER, and you will be already running rings round those stuck in the lattice.
“Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.7 Do not be amazed that I said to you, ‘You must be born [c]again.’ 8 The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
You can construct a lattice but you can't construct the Church which comes down from above.
There's a peculiar calling from birth upon a segment of people....almost regardless of whether born again or not.
They are prophetic. They are creatives. They can also be darned moody.
They can appear other worldly. You can't demand anything of them....although sometimes the pressure of the demand is a furnace which can produce results.
You can't make them do anything to your commands....they themselves do not even behave according to their own whims or demands. For them the process feels like giving birth to something in great torment.
They are a sign in the earth to another world....the world of heart. The world of honour. True glory. The beyond.
I don't think Dylan Thomas was born again as such....but in "Under Milk Wood" he lays bare the sort of real life characterisations that lie behind the carefully constructed facades of our projections of human life...it has a quaint beautiful localised feel, describing a Welsh port....but really the quirks and personnages could be anywhere on earth. Which is why it is so well loved and it spills out from its immediate boundaries.
See, as fast you say, HAH....that guy shouldn't be sleeping with that other man's wife....
well, Judah the tribe inherited its name from goings on far worse. The Bible beats Under Milk Wood for graphic almost pornographic detail hands down...why
simply that every mouth be stopped, and everyone be forced to admit that
living independently we live powered by MR LUSTS
there is no middle ground.
We need a new man to Dance in us. We are meant to be in another LOVE RELATIONSHIP.
The dance is expressed in other humans accepting and receiving actively their brethren the prophets, the creatives.
A civilisation dies when it lives under Rothschild and the balance sheet.
Suddenly it turns about and asks....Hey?
Where are the musicians. Where are the painters, designers and sculptors?
Everything is mass produced plastic from China. Nothing is real. One off. Authentic.
Churches look round and suddenly notice...that SUPERCHARGE WORD that comes through dedicated prophets is nolonger among us. I remember it used to be there in the 70s and 80s? What happened? Where did they go?
At the moment the thirdlevel church is poised to manifest and the Dragon is poised to try and tear the baby from the mother at the time of its birth. As far as I can see, the thirdlevel church isn't in any of the existing churches, which now are largely empty shells with hardly any remaining SUPERCHARGE.
