Come waste some time with me.
Dancing together in harmony
I'll be you, you be me
Dancing as romance,
lost in life,
See no time we live the eternal
Gifted eternal community as yet to be discovered. Yes it is possible and increasingly probable that community of gifted and talented people come together to just BE (as a state) life.
Picture such a community where artists are together with business people who are together with builders with chefs and musicians etc.
I can see a new type of gallery. Not one that is a display but rather an experience a provision of spiritually romantic expression. I can see that not one part of the experience aimed towards an outcome or a motivation.
Yes it would take a unique expression of the brave at heart. Ones who can see past the temporal as they seek to discover the eternal. Such a gallery of life would have gifted chefs expressing their creation in unison with musicians who spontaneously express creative life through their resonance.
The artwork would have artists creating to express in a pure form of life. In this community they are not defiled by disappointments and fear. This community is a safe place to BE (as a state) true to who we are. In this expression life is revealed and discovered in ways never expressed before. There is no motive for such it is just a journey that is eternal in its origin and as we flow with the path of the river of life there is healing.
It is within the gifts in all of us we see a link to an eternal God. Beyond the gift we see the decomposition of life into mortality and in the mortal we subject life to limits and death. Imagine a spiritual place where mortality is swallowed up by life and in this expression of an eternal God we discover true limitless identity. An identity that can only be discovered by romantic surrender in a spiritual way. Romance in and of itself is limitless and it is only in subjection to mortality romance dies. In spiritual regeneration of our inner being, romance comes alive and the eternal flow of such bursts forth out of our core. Now we can express, now we can create, now we are free to discover limitless.
So in this gallery of life such a community draws in romantics stupefied by love of pure unadulterated life. As such a one savors the moment they can only live the moment and in living a lifetime of moments they surrender their identity to a spiritual movement of life. In surrender of identity they become complete identity and instead of the struggle of individuality they are now unified with the creator and His created.
As I look beyond what religion has defiled by creating manageable knowledge. I see a Godhead that is a complete expression of life. It is not understandable to ones head as a gifted person understand the talent cannot be explained. It is an invitation to surrender to a movement called the Godhead that said "let us make man in our image." We are all being propelled into life itself and it is only as we get sucked into mortal limited life we lose life itself. Wretched man that I am who can deliver me from this body of death. I thank God it is no longer I that lives but spiritual koinonia.
What religion of every race and greed has bastardized by knowledge. Spiritual koinonia lives as romance with a Godhead of life that brings intimacy, unity, unison, caring, giving, freedom, intercourse etc.

The anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of us as the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope 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. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now. Romans 8:19
To be clear creation waits eagerly for the revealing of us as the sons of God. A revealing of the predestined to be sons. It is in amazement we look at creation and understand it is indeed subjected to futility. Creation is decaying and as man was given dominion of the earth in Genesis, we understand creation was subjected to futility. Now we have man playing God of his own world and as time unfolds creation groans longing to be set free from its slavery. A slavery to natural men in self and expounding the works of self. Creation is the victim of mankind’s lust and as man lusts for dominion he was given freely he destroys what surrounds him. Mankind destroys to create, God creates from nothing and is melodic harmony.
The corruption this passage talks about is a de-composing of creation and as it decomposes we see a perpetual cycle of destruction. As man creates within creation he destroys. Carnality always destroys to create, there is never a resonating within harmony of life. Mankind in and of himself is destructive and cannot exist any other way. As creation has been subjected to corruption it is important to note the verse says “in hope” it is in hope God subjected creation to futility, it was in hope God wanted to set creation free from de-composing. It certainly seems strange that God subjected the limitless self-perpetuation life of creation to mankind. It is in understanding the very essence of creation we can understand the heart of God.
God desired to make man in the image of the Godhead. Man was needed as a new member of Godly unity and as we have talked about in previous writings man had to have his independent identity and realize its futility before he could enter a Godhead unity. So in relation to this passage God was wanting man to run things his way so that he would ultimately abandon his limited creativity to expand into limitless creation. It is in this abandonment we see creation coming into the glory of the sons of God.
What is that glory and how is it manifest? That glory simply put is man discovering when he abandons self he abides in God and when he abides in God he is unified with a Godhead that creates as harmony and resonates with all creation. It is in our previous writings we can understand this process and the reasoning of God. But ultimately Gods creative life in a spirit unified believer, releases the creative. God wanted to create a new world and in that world he would be one with mankind and mankind would be one with him. He refers to this oneness as His bride and the heart of God is to create a new world with a new world order. A world in which God and man are unified and resonate in harmony. Revelation 21
In talking of this God subjected creation to the futility of man knowing the earth would be destroyed and a new one created with the Godhead and man being part of that Godhead. Together man and God would have a honeymoon and create their dream home. Gods dream home is just being with us and man’s dream home is just being with Him. Imagine a world so attune to the heart of God and man unified that there is no sun. As God will live among man and there will be no darkness no disease, no sickness , no mourning, no fear. God will illuminate this world with the light of who he is and as the sun was a type of God it will go dark and God will never go dark. Revelation 21 again.
Creation is failing but in its failing it is bursting waiting for us as the sons of God to be revealed and as the chrysalis of this temporal world will melt with fervent heat. As it melts natural man will find their hearts failing them of the terrible expectation of things to come. Natural sight orientated mankind trapped in control of the mind and self will be terrified. The terror will come as they cannot see past the temporal they cannot see the eternal and are locked into a prison of self and self-sight and desires. But creation rejoices as we are released into the glory of who we are in koinonia expression ate life. Until now creation groaned but now just like Noah in Hebrews 11 we see his actions condemned the world and our action of abandonment and surrender condemns this world and creates another.
So a natural person would read of such and see fantasy. A spirit person can do nothing but abandon self to the creative of God and allow creation As we allow creation we have no idea how to help that, hinder that, reveal that or influence that. It is a becoming part of the bride it talks of in Revelation 21 and that bride is completely unified in identity as the Godhead is unified. A bride that moves as one, exists as one, and is waiting as one, for the groom to come in love and gather her to Himself. A returning groom who anxiously with longing awaits the bride. He will come and collect his bride as He watches her form spotless and without blemish. She is pure spotless and without blemish as in Sspirit she moves as one is unified as one and has no spiritual difference to the others that make her up. She abandoned doctrine based in natural systems of knowledge and embraced spirit doctrines of life. This bride is a creation of beauty herself created by a Godhead bursting for intimacy. A Godhead that began it all by saying let’s make her in “our image”. As the Godhead is unified in incredible incomprehensible majestic beauty. So is His creation of the bride, and the bride is a carbon copy of the Godhead on earth. Identical and inseparable to the Godhead. The bride was made by the Godhead for the godhead. If she can see it in the groom it exists in the bride. The formation of the bride is the completed manifestation of the godhead on earth. If we can see it in God and not see it in us as the bride then we are not in the bride. If we can distinguish flaws in the bride then she is not the bride but a counterfeit creation of man’s religious systems. The bride has no blemish of sin and need not strive to be beautiful she is Godhead on earth. She never speaks wrong even when her words offend. She never dirties herself even when others jealously can’t understand. The bride is not limited to natural comprehension as she is a spiritual creation with a spiritual body. The temporal falls away as the mortal is swallowed up by life, CREATIVE HOLY LIFE devoid of action or understanding. As it is in all, can see all and does all. The bride consists of the true church it worships in Sspirit and truth. Not as subjected to a natural creation but rather released to a new world order and as we hear the name of the new world it is inexpressible in a natural verbal way. Perhaps for the first time 2 Corinthians 2:4 comes alive. Inexpressible words, which a man is not permitted to speak.
A spiritual world order where Godhead is marrying His own kind. He is marrying a bride without the blemishes of natural doctrines. Without the blemishes of sinful deeds, without trying to be beautiful. A bride that is comfortable with her identity and is not needing to use and abuse her groom to validate herself. A bride with a wonderful self-image that has no needs that need to be taken care of and is not demanding attention or desires be met. This bride is confident in koinonia life and has abandoned the creation of this world in anticipation of the next. Together she will create with her groom that of the next world.
Verses that caused this writing to exist.
[1Co 15:44 NASB] 44 it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.
Revelation 21 The New Heaven and Earth

Certainly is a challenge to any religious brain. Best say this is written to those in Spirit not in brain.
Whole encompassing spirit of life. Have you ever stopped and thought about how God can manage so many at one time. It reveals the orphan heart core in all of us when we stop to ponder this. To think that God cares or even knows about the intricate details of life is one thing but when we abandon to Him and see Him bring amazing provision and life it is a whole new level of concerning.
It became obvious as I tried to influence our provision in any way that it would make matters worse. The orphan heart can do nothing but ultimately provide for itself, throw tantrums and justify self to self to make self believe it is doing right. All the while in our spirit man we think something is not right but cannot yield to manifestation of such.
So what about my family’s needs? We can find all sorts of verses in the bible to please our orphan heart and the hearts actions to please self but there is a level that is manifesting that in abandonment everything that is life comes to it. Can we explain it? Absolutely not and it would be foolish to even try. But here are a few spiritual glimpse’s that are beyond our heads and manifest from our spirit.
God is all encompassing and in that all-encompassing he does not operate in consciousness as we do. He is spirit consciousness and as such is all encompassing. The world we live in was created in this spirit consciousness and creation is a great example of this. God said let there be and we are still living in that “let there be”. What removes us from this is our need for conscious carnal control of our orphan hearts. It was in the let there be that every animal we see today exists and plant and microorganism. It can only be grasped through spirit that God just spoke and the words eternally create. It is as if His words in Spirit are an ecosystem that is limitless and eternal and within the eco system everything is attainable because we have no interest in attaining anything we just co-exist with Christ and as we do such He propels us into the God heart and Fathers heart.
An ecosystem of microorganisms that when analyzed get smaller and smaller and untimely disappear into the spiritual. We cannot analyze the ecosystem we can only view its expression and products as the natural man is product limited and orientated. The spiritual man is process living and never pauses for product. The bridge between the spiritual and natural is a cross section of such and as the divide is so vast the only way across from natural to spiritual is as the bible says to forsake all. Our self-righteous identity of the orphan heart must yield and surrender to the Fathers heart.
So what can be more of a clear example of the dichotomy between spiritual and carnal than the trees and animals and plants. Man in all his vast intelligence cannot create trees animals or plants from nothing. Yet we try and will continue to try and fail as everything that lives and moves and is in Him. He spoke and an ecosystem is. For me to put things together to try and make an animal is impossible as we cannot cross from the natural to the spiritual. Man looks too linear at this expression. He tries to make a cell and add life to it. Life is a spiritual ecosystem that flows from a word God spoke , “let there be”. So is this not the same as our orphan heart expressing the need to create for itself. As impossible as creating a new plant or animal is, it is impossible for man to provide for himself. Yes the orphan heart will try and in the frustration religion is made. But in abandonment we can be one with the ecosystem God has created. That abandonment is something that is not subject to the orphan heart. We cannot abandon to attain or ultimately it is the orphan heart again mutating to take control for self-gratification.
The only way to abide in the ecosystem called spiritual life is koinonia life. The bible says unless we lose our life we cannot find life. So when I have had enough and just give up my orphan heart I can merge with the Fathers heart. Abandon self-righteousness to take God righteousness.
When conscious naturally I am orphaned and locked in to a world of self and self-need. When abandoned it is no longer I that lives but Christ that lives in me. [Gal 2:20 NASB] 20 "I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.
Utopia is a life absorbed into Christ and Christ into life. He is not interested in our carnal man changing he is interested in it being abandoned as we live spiritual life. A new default that brings about limitless expression of God. It is in the knowledge we have limited the expression as in the knowledge resides the orphan heart.
So to further the expression of this.
We have a spiritual ecosystem that is all around us it is evident that the natural cannot possibly see the spiritual until the spiritual is so bursting with creative life it spills into the natural. Conversely the spiritual cannot see the natural and we find the more absorbed into spirit we are the less we even are aware of evil around or humanistic needs and the control of. The less we are held by the things the natural treasures and are fascinated by and the more we just exist in a world beyond comprehension. A world called God or Elohim.
As Elohim spoke an eco-system was created but here is the astounding discovery of the moment. The eco-system is creative and will continue to be creative. The world dies in its natural eco-system with the revealing of carnal humanistic life being chosen over spiritual life. Or conversely as we walk spirit life as koinonia we create and life is given to the natural eco-system around us.
New species are being discovered and if you have not heard look up the Ninja glow shark that was just found. Or a new spider they found a few months ago. Could it be as we reside in spiritual life, as we reside in the word God spoke in Genesis to “LET THERE BE” now we SEE.
If I can attach a conscious desire to it then I have taken it to the carnal and subjected it to humanism. But as I am aware in my spirit of life then the creative happens. Why? Because I have no natural thought for it but to enter as it manifests. I cannot choose to be aware so it will happen else all I have is humanism deceptively trying to bridge the gap to what Adam was. Trying to be like God. All we can do is enjoy the ecosystem and know that God does not have a daily planner where He looks at all of us and our needs and maps out what He should do for the day. He spoke already and when He spoke until this day and to eternity His word is creating. The only frustration to creation that happens is when we live the self-righteousness of Lucifer and Adam and subject ourselves to the humanism of Eden. Even then creation is still at work we choose to walk mortal sight instead of abiding in Spiritual revealing. I guess the outcome of this is stress and fear and anxiety. Be still and know that I am God!
To create in this world it is a multi-part equation. Godhead and koinonia each is a link to its spiritual environment .
So here is what is so clear and life is beaming out of. As I reside in spirit life I am creative. To think I can create by conscious choice is humanism and I cannot say OH I will create a new animal today. Rather as I am Scott life in that unification of beings everything that was not IS.
Jesus walking on the water for example. I wonder if He was even aware that was going to happen. In Spirit life I can see Jesus entering the picture of the ecosystem manifest around Him. So Jesus just did what “now” was producing and as Jesus know the “now” was to be with His disciples he just walked on out to them. I just can’t see him standing on the shore wondering if he can step now or setting his mind to block out distraction. Jesus just walked the now of eternity.
So the more I see my needs I will always try to apply purpose or production to the equation as ultimately my humanistic overhang of mortal life demands attention. As I just savor the fragrance of koinonia life the needs will be met. Not by action to do but by identity of rest. Sure I have a knowledge they are there but who wants to spend a lifetime looking at mud when there is a blue sky.
The mortal will need a plan as it careers over the needs and desire precipice of mortality. The spiritual abandons in an inner manifestation of koinonia with the Godhead that says be still and know that I am God.
Together we create, with our spiritual being !
So it could be me but reading Daniel I notice the following.
- Religious love the sacrifice of Daniels prayer and think we will get the results of Daniel. They miss the fact the bible is revealing the journey of people not the instances and formulas. I love how the angel never complimented Daniel on his sacrifice and one other thing I notice is all the angel talks about is Daniels first approach. When Daniel first noticed Gods people were missing out on a truth or promise it was at that moment an angel was dispatched and everything after that in my estimation was Daniel religion or maybe an expression of Daniels spiritual life as he understood to that point. Not incorrect or wrong just individual to Daniel.
- [Dan 9:20-23 KJV] 20 And whiles I [was] speaking, and praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and presenting my supplication before the LORD my God for the holy mountain of my God; 21 Yea, whiles I [was] speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation. 22 And he informed [me], and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to give thee skill and understanding. 23 At the beginning of thy supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to shew [thee]; for thou [art] greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision.
- It highlights to me the importance of knowing our rights as koinonia and allowing God to restore to us. It was Daniel identifying and activating his spirit man faith to walk into the promise. It is at the start of the matter everything happens and is ordained and yes it takes time as we build in the spirit to often see the next milestone revealed. What a tragedy to see the bible as a book of manifestations, formulas, methods or results. NOTE. Daniel did not come up with a bright idea of what God’s blessing should be. Rather Daniel identified through his devotion of spirit a manifestation or promise was being missed out on. His spirit brain saw and grasped as it entered and his natural man just followed. So too we fail to create when we allow ME to manifest. As we rest in spirit culture and see the ecosystem of life then we see forgotten or yet to be revealed promises that we must now abandon natural mortality to abide in. That abandonment is not an action it is a resting in the ecosystem that manifests and is life. That ecosystem is refreshing and life giving and beautiful as the eco system is fed by the waters that flow from the throne of God and trees are planted by that spiritual river.
[Rev 22:1-5 NLT] 1 Then the angel showed me a river with the water of life, clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 It flowed down the center of the main street. On each side of the river grew a tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, with a fresh crop each month. The leaves were used for medicine to heal the nations. 3 No longer will there be a curse upon anything. For the throne of God and of the Lamb will be there, and his servants will worship him. 4 And they will see his face, and his name will be written on their foreheads. 5 And there will be no night there--no need for lamps or sun--for the Lord God will shine on them. And they will reign forever and ever.
So a spiritual eco system has limitless expressions of life but firstly the waters are clear. In fact they are so clear they cannot be seen with natural ability. But these waters in this ecosystem flow from a place of life itself, creative life. When God spoke his word to create. An everlasting river of life flowed and that river will never end it cannot end as in the creative of spirit life there are no ends to the creative. This shows us the earth will never be destroyed it will merely be renewed and as the end should come life is given by a river of God that creates and renews. New species, new organisms. What the world has called evolution God calls ongoing creation of His life ecosystem. Mankind in his carnal lust and perversion to be God destroys and Gods creative river restores and gives life, with healing in the leaves it is creative life and constantly flows. Just depends what ecosystem we are part of as our default.
There is no longer a curse in Holy Spirit life as the river took the curse and brought life. To me just like Daniel it takes us to look past the curse we have submitted to. Daniel 9:2 Daniel understood by the books the number of years spoken by Jeremiah the prophet. He saw past the curse by revelation or rhema, the living word of God that continues has no end and is a creative river of life. I guess the issue is we become like Daniel we see past the curse and get excited for what we see then it is a trap to impose our religious striving to attain thinking God showed us so we can do something instead of grasping we see creative life in the river and can only remain in the river and let it flow with creation as it waters the eco system of spiritual life manifest. Look past the ecosystem of this world and the culture of failure and see the ever expressing clarity of a river flowing from the throne of God. Daniel saw they were living according to a curse and all it took was for him to see and when he saw creation was activated the river flowed and a new ecosystem of creative blessing was life.
As we live clear life we are marked as the Lord God will shine on us and as the bride readies herself for the wedding feast then we will reign with Him forever. So what becomes apparent is we have lived the culture of a curse and limited our eyes to see the lust of carnality. We have lusted for everything conceivable and ultimately never been satisfied. The orphan heart deceiving and destroying. It is only as we play in the river of life we see creative life. Can’t swim in the river of life as how do you swim for eternity? Besides there is no control in this river, can’t touch the bottom as in touching the bottom there is control. All we can do in this river is float enjoy the scenery and play as we drift past and through that which has never been and now is. Crystal clear water, WOW!
See it in the spirit enter the release of it as who we are and enjoy the daily manifestations of life as we wait for heaven to create through us to the earth. That creation often takes time as the prince of the power of the air works in the sons of disobedience. It should be noted in our spirit that once we have identified it in the spirit life then it has been dispatched and now we do well to abandon and abide as the creative is not something we can influence by religion and it methods or hard work, JUST FLOAT and let mortality drown. Rather we do well to not get so caught up in life we miss the creation of life around us as we have smothered life my mortality. CEASE STRIVING AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD!

Let´s take a walk back through what we have called the gospel road. First let’s make a few underlying
statements that may need explaining as we go.
1.Man hides his self righteousness behind his sin.
2.The Godhead said let’s make man in our image. “OUR” should be noted.
3.God had a plan from the very beginning to make man in the image of the Godhead. God did not say I
will make man in my image. He said let’s make man in our image. What is that image?
4.If we are made in the God heads image. What does that look like?
Theologians have done us a disservice. They have explained the Godhead as a trinity and it is feeble listening to Christians trying to explain the trinity. They say ,water, steam and ice and such attempts to explain just don't do it. There is no natural explanation for the Godhead and the closest example we have is what the bible translators could not translate.
There is no English word for spiritual koinonia. This word arrived in the bible in Acts 2 right after Pentecost. Perhaps a great way to bring understanding is to say it this way. Godhead and koinonia could be seen as the same. Koinonia is God delivering Godhead to man or ¨let’s make man in our image.¨ This is true church and intimacy with God and man. So church if it is correct can only be explained as you would explain the Godhead. To limit it to our humanistic ways is to put the God head into mans sardine tin.
So without entering koinonia we are not completed as being created in God’s image. We have looked naturally at what God said and have missed the spiritual side of the statement. So there are a few things that are essential in getting a small understanding of the journey to koinonia.
1. Without having independent identity we cannot be Godhead koinonia. The Godhead has individual identity that they have laid aside to be one with each other. They are separate but they are one. Their individuality is transparent as they choose to lay it aside to be one. In koinonia we cannot be united with the godhead until we have had independent identity and laid it aside. The only way to have independent personality is for us to break away from God and to think we can do it ourselves. How this happened is completely amazing really.
2. But before we start out in talking about this lets remember God is completely all powerful nothing happens that He does not or has not allowed.
So the first step of creation was to use lucifer. Lucifer became self righteous and was thrown out of heaven. He took a third of the angels with him and it always puzzled me how these angels would agree to go with him. Lucifer was in fact playing a very important part of creation without even knowing it. God had a master plan to create man and man needed identity to be in the Godheads image.
So Lucifer now known as satan came into the garden The same garden of Eden where you have to ask yourself why did God put a tree there that he knew satan would make man eat from? I suggest God needed man to enter the self righteousness of lucifer. In heaven sin never existed and never will but obviously self righteousness did. Lucifer became self righteous and was thrown out of heaven. Now Adam and Eve entered the same self righteousness as lucifer and were thrown out of Eden and separated from God.
God’s creation was going according to his plan and man now had identity separate to God. Man had become self righteous on his journey to become God righteous. In that self righteousness man thought he could be one with God and craved to be like God. In fact he still does, many churches teach people to be more Christ like and this is the initial self righteousness that God allowed man to establish to reveal his plan.
Adam and Eve knew they were not Godhead and lucifer had fooled them into thinking he had a way for this to happen. I suggest they knew the godheads plan to make man in their image and knew they were not complete. So let’s now jump to God bringing about his plan. Man desired to be part of the Godhead and I will paraphrase. God met man in his righteousness and says OK you want to be like me and one with me. I will give you 10 commandments. There are only 10 and if you can keep them we will be all good.
Is that not a beautiful thing? God knew he better keep it simple while revealing to man he was self righteous and in being such his self righteousness is offensive to God.
Man tried his hardest and failed. Man made a focus of the failure and tried even harder to be righteous.
Just like we see today in church systems based in mans righteousness. They will always make a focus of sin or the lack of to attain for God. So we know ultimately man failed and I will jump up to John the Baptist and Jesus.
Jesus was an amazing piece of the plan and had been from before the creation of man. Man was at the point he needed to be exposed in his self righteousness and that could only be done by removing his sin. Sin really is a place all men hide their righteousness. Think about it all our sin is somebody else´s fault. We blame our parents, friends, life you name it. Sin is indeed a problem that defines man as he hides from God in it.
So Jesus comes to do away with sin. He did not just forgive sin he did away with it completely and passages like 1 John 3 show us. This passage says if we see sin we have not seen God. You see sin is what defines man and as long as we can see sin or the lack of it we will always think we have attained something or are pleasing to God. This is a compete lie man created. God does not care about the sin he cares about the righteousness and all our attempts at religion feed mans righteousness.
So Romans tells us sin comes via the law and if there is no law there is no sin. Romans then reveals to us how Jesus fulfilled the law. He completed the righteous requirements of the law and in so doing the law was absorbed into Christ. Jesus became the law and did away with the law and in so doing he took away any knowledge of sin. This is troubling to the self righteous part of man. We need our religion and our good works to become like God. As we work on sin, as we see sin in others, as we define sin or our lack of all we are doing is strengthening our self righteous core.
In Jesus we no longer have an excuse for self righteousness and Jesus himself said it is better that I go as I will send you a comforter who will teach you what I say and will come alongside you and will be in you. If Jesus had of remained the focus of sin would have remained with Him. He needed to go so that creation could be competed by the Holy Spirit coming to work and unify with us.
When we finally see we just can’t figure life out and that our self centered actions are limiting us we are able to give up. To say Jesus I don't have the answers my sin has run my life and is a chain that keeps me bound to myself and the systems of the world around me. Then I can turn my life over to Jesus. As man enters Jesus and Jesus enters man amazing things happen. Man via Jesus can now see he can’t do life in his own strength. As man lives his own ways he remains in the power of sin and lives in the carnal knowledge of sin. But in abandoning life or losing life we find life. I lose self to find God self.
The amazing journey continues as Jesus left the and sent the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit now brings us to koinonia and this word arrives in the bible for the first time in Acts2. The day of Pentecost is all about walking koinonia. Man in his self righteousness makes it about manifestations or knowledge but in reality it is the first step in Holy Spirit life.
The baptism of the holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in Tongues shows us we can’t make our new salvation and unity with Christ about us. I must abandon control to speak in tongues. Sure I can still control and tongues does not force itself on me. But my first lesson in spirit life is that I must live God righteousness by the state of who I am not by what I do. The issue we have created as humanistic men is making Pentecost about manifestations or doctrine. It is not a movement of knowledge the Baptism of the Holy Spirit s all about a romantic Holy Spirit co-joined life. It is about surrender of my righteousness and assuming of God righteousness. Now I am free to find my true identity.
So the Spirit filled church becomes self righteous in their claim to power and manifestations and the non-spirit filled church becomes self righteous in their claim to solid bible teaching they can grasp with their self righteous heads and the true church of koinonia refuses to make natural doctrine of God romance. They live Holy Spirit doctrine and the koinonia true bride just enters the flow of love and becomes the flow of love. Koinonia church understands God completes us as we complete God and it is this way as the God head chooses to make it this way.

Any who are gifted always have the danger of becoming so strongly idealistic. Everything around their life goes up for grabs and they ask questions of all. Nothing remains sacred as this person pushes the boundaries in their life. The area of the gift is the gateway to strong ideals of how things should be done and it always borders on problems if not handled correctly.
Think of the frustration when you are good at something, gifted beyond any of your piers or those around you. You see things in a different light and easily can be tipped into frustration of cynicism with the world around.
Questions arise like, wondering why the world does not see it your way when you are only trying to help it. A gifted person can see a whole picture that others just cannot and in seeing the whole picture they many times try to change the world around them to see accordingly.
We have written about self righteousness and here again it resurfaces as a threat to the gift. It is a threat in that is will distract from the fullness of the revealing inside the gift.
What often happens is the person gets sidetracked and pulled away from their gifted area. Sure they are still very much part of the gift as it is part of them but slowly creeps in a frustration or even anger at the world around them. Now the manifestation of the gift is distorted and tries to fit into a place it has no regard in being.
Maybe we could say it this way, a gifted person once frustration sets in starts to play God. The feeling of correctness is overwhelming and the actions to help others while coming from a maybe genuine heart will always produce frustration and anger as they are rejected. Yes some who are dazzled by the magnificence of the gift are bewitched by the environment but outside that circle the world rejects the change. This highlights the need for koinonia community again with a gift. Stay inside your gift and allow others to come to that community who are equally gifted in their areas of expertise. That can never happen when a person righteously is trying to change the world.
We could say that if I have anything to teach others then I am placing myself above these people and in so doing will entertain self inflated and grandiose ideals of self. Even when I can see a problem, as a gifted person who understands spiritual koinonia all I can do is surrender my frustrations, fears and such to koinonia. Now I don’t come with what many perceive as arrogance but rather I come in love and appreciation of others and myself and God. Then in this atmosphere of creation I create.
In a life of gifts things are seen another way and really in Gods world we understand things have to happen differently to be life. In spirit life we see a picture and live that picture that we see in the gift. As we rest in the picture, intimacy with koinonia, God and man exists and things happen. It is the intimacy of koinonia that produces the needed parts.
Man’s way is to see a picture of what we want and to work on putting the pieces together. The minute we are working to produce in this way our gifts have been sidelined and we are now crossing to areas that are someone else’s gift. So for example the bible gives us a good example. In Ezekiel 37 there is a prophet who is standing in front of a valley of bones. God says to the prophet what do you see and the prophet says I valley of bones, God says he sees a great army. I see this story as a great example of spirit life as a gifted person. God looks and sees a great army. Man looks and sees dead bones. Gifted people look and see a great army in their gift but others just see fragments and bones. The gifted see the bigger picture.
In this story the bones come together and a great army stands before the prophet. Now as ordinary people we are amazed when things come together to form an army. But a gifted person can see the army before it ever exists. They did not build the army it was already in existence and the bones coming together was a natural spiritual event.
A gift inside koinonia can see the future because inside a gift there is no time anything is possible. That cannot be fathomed or understood by mans brain but to the gifted they can see through spiritual eyes.
See the picture and enter the landscape of it. It is then all things are possible to them who believe as there will be an assurance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. As we rest in heavenly places or in the landscape of the spiritual gifted picture before us life beams out of the landscape and changes the world around us. It creates and in creating others who can see enter the landscape and together life is released life that will change the world one breath at a time.
The natural way we are all very familiar with is we work as orphan hearts to achieve a picture we can see. Independently we can fall into the trap of thinking we can achieve as we are better than others. After all we see things others cannot see. It is in this dangerous slide of death to a gift many frustrations will be encountered and the frustration will be internalized. Trapped by despair we will offend the world around us and ultimately be in danger of persecution and isolation. As what people do not understand they either isolate from or persecute.
The power is not in the picture the power lies in abiding. As we abide in spiritual life brought to us via koinonia then creative power is released. The power is in abiding not in acting. Looking from our carnal eyes we must abandon our identity and take a spiritual identity that can only come from Christ himself. Every religion with Christianity included is an attempt to fabricate this symbiotic relationship. All religion is a failure to connect as it is never about abiding it is about working to be something we are not. While religion keeps us busy striving for a promised pot of gold we can never abide in a spiritual landscape.
I am thankful for the many years I worked inside religious systems. During those years I travelled ministering in churches of tens, hundreds and even thousands. In this a lot was discovered that now bring understanding in greater ways. So some get upset with religion and claim to be away from it but they miss the point the problem is not the name of the organization it is the heart of man. Man’s heart constantly tries to take control. This type of man has an orphan heart that demands respect and its way of doing life.
Take for example a soccer club. I have been very involved with soccer having many kids who play. At first I was astounded at the soccer club we were in. It is totally religious; it ticks moves and acts exactly as a religious church. I could go into all the actions but we all know the actions as we have all done them. Ultimately it boils down to a man worshipping himself and expecting others to follow. If I am the best at soccer coaching then others will recognize that and do as I say to get better results. We now end up with a church of “coach”. The followers do whatever he says and groan about it and talk behind his back about how much of a burden the coach is. They tolerate it as it is their church and after all they are using the coach as the coach is using them. All seek self and cannot see this as the God of this world has blinded their eyes.
If a coach understood the spiritual statement that he who wants to be the greatest among you must be the servant of all. If he had a glimpse of this then koinonia could happen. Now the coach of leader cannot be a servant by choice and actions, it is by a movement of the spirit brought about by a spiritual connection via koinonia. You see in koinonia Christ and others release life to my very being. As they are life together with me the spiritual landscape that is painted is never ending.
Sp to a soccer team a spiritually intelligent coach has realized he is naturally devoid of understanding how to get players to the next level. Yes he can train them and as one great coach said. “A hard working player will always play better than a gifted player who is lazy”. There are many hard working coaches who have no time to enter a spiritual landscape of koinonia. They are too busy working to fabricate a picture but the trouble is they are working from the wrong end.
You can’t see a picture and fabricate it. You can only see a picture and enter it and abide. You can only abide when we understand he who wants to find his life must lose his life. This is a hard statement to grasp and in reality it cannot be grasped it must be entered. It can only be entered as we start to realize we have played God in our own lives and are humbled enough; often by failure to reach the end. Until we reach the end we cannot start. Our natural prowess has to fail before we can lose our life to find spiritual life.
I have talked to no end of people who see a glimpse of a spiritual landscape and want to use it to bolster their position. So for example who would not want the benefits of koinonia and they will use and rape koinonia as much as they can for their own ends. As long as I can see self, as long as I think I can do something to change the world I am useless and will probably ultimately fail. Sure enough I can change the world but until I enter spiritual koinonia the change will never reach the fullness of what it should have been.
So the disease of the young is to see a picture in a gift but in seeing they think they are the picture. They think they are the Lego toy set and in arrogant orphan heart pride push away the spiritual release of life they need to enter a spiritual landscape.
Remember a child plays with Lego and enjoys what it builds but never thinks they are Lego. I have never seen a child pretend to be Lego but they sure pretend to be in the scenery it built. Even a child understands it is their father playing with them that creates amazing Lego landscapes. The gift of Lego given by the father is amazing but the fun begins when dad plays with the child and other brothers and sisters come together and create a landscape of Lego like no other. Now hours of endless fun are created as a community. Nobody thinks they are the Lego, all the Lego is doing is bringing intimacy.
When a coach understands they are not Lego. When they submit their need for identity and validation then landscapes are built like this world has never seen.
So just like you can’t choose your natural family you can’t choose your koinonia family. You are born into it and until we embrace the family we will always act as an orphan. Yes the orphan can build some Lego creations but nothing like what the family can do while being together and making landscapes. Yes each part being perfected by different eyes.

John 5:31 “If I bear witness of Myself, My witness is not true. 32 There is another who bears witness of Me, and I know that the witness which He witnesses of Me is true. 33 You have sent to John, and he has borne witness to the truth. 34 Yet I do not receive testimony from man, but I say these things that you may be saved. 35 He was the burning and shining lamp, and you were willing for a time to rejoice in his light. 36 But I have a greater witness than John’s; for the works which the Father has given Me to finish—the very works that I do—bear witness of Me, that the Father has sent Me. 37 And the Father Himself, who sent Me, has testified of Me. You have neither heard His voice at any time, nor seen His form. 38 (1).But you do not have His word abiding in you, because whom He sent, Him you do not believe. 39 (2).You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which (3).testify of Me. 40 But you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life.
41 “I do not receive honor from men. 42 But I know you, that you do not have the love of God in you. 43 I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive. 44 How can you believe, (4).who receive honor from one another, and do not seek the honor that comes from the only God? 45 Do not think that I shall accuse you to the Father; there is one who accuses you—Moses, in whom you trust. 46 For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote about Me. 47 (5).But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?”
5 points on this passage
- We are supposed to be living epistles. Even more so now Pentecost has happened. The bible is a mirror for a spirit filled person it is not a text book for life.
clearly you are an epistle of Christ, ministered by us, written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart.
We are written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God. No longer do we learn about Christ through law we are revealed in Christ as co-joined with Him. While the religious struggle with this and see it as sac religious just like Jesus talking in this passage in John. He reveals the fact if we place our lives in the bible we are misguided. Offensive yes but only to the religious, atheists and the people of this world are having bible become who they are. Imagine their quandary when they find out the bible is writing about their life. Of course then they surrender to Spirit by natural progression of the love of God not by someone giving them knowledge of the bible.
The religious would say how do they hear without a preacher. The Holy Spirit church says “It is not what I do it’s who I am,” spirit and truth as the bible says. Spirit teaching is like a refreshing drink on a hot day to the heart of men.
5. Even then we have supernovas in the bible. Passages we explain away and churchianity folks are blocked from the truth, as they are residing in their carnal nature for enlightenment. Passages like 1 John 3 where it says if you sin you have not seen God. Listen to the weak attempts of carnal ministers to explain such. This is a supernova verse a gateway to the eternal in God impossible to rationalize.
