Brokenness I

We hear a lot in the charismatic realm about "being vulnerable".
For many years in the 80s Gene Edwards was telling us about brokenness.
Ed Miller was too.
We saw that King David, his brokenness, was somehow connected to the amazing promise over his life...Behold I give you the Key of David,Behold, I have put before you an open door which no one can shut,.......

but the leftbrain hears these words and constructs its own reality out of it....

you get people "looking broken"

in our Bible Houses you had the women bringing onions to the meetings....and everybody thought they were real tears...well the tears were real enough...but so were the onions.

You get people reading about Jacob at Peniel then walking round with sticks.

Brokenness is NOT a leftbrain doctrine.
Neither is Christ in you the hope of glory...

Brokenness per se, is not even a revelation....

At one level it is brokenness over sin....but Jesus never sinned yet walked in brokenness...

Brokenness is KNOWING your union with God...
KNowing that your life is not your own...it is God's life in you.
Because that is such a core concept to thirdlevel living, and is so many layers down....

Romans 7 has to be a very deliberate experience...
Put it this way....YOU KNOW ABOUT IT !!!!!!

"I will write these laws upon your heart." Jeremiah 31

Before we had one programming code and always strayed....
But now the Holy Spirit is writing His New programming code right into us.

Hah....

But there is a brokenness that has nothing to do with sin.
It is the experience of God loving through you....but with that Cross in the heart of God Himself...
What is the Cross...the negation...the absolute decision within God, that as powerful as He may be, He never will lie against Himself in order to be anything but a LOVE For Others being....

A Cross marked through the very spot that is to do with SELFLOVE at another's expense.
