We have been given the opportunity of opportunities of all Earthly life-times… but this window of opportunity for us is soon and without hesitation, coming to a very definite tactical close and will be snapped shut forever according to the approved schedule’s hastening fast approach. And yet that schedule can and will assuredly continue with or without us… For God has never needed us for anything, save that God in the fullness of the grace of His Oneness, the complete absolute unity of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, so One are They that They are known as God, singular, “He”, “Him”, “His”, that we have not been able to fathom how God could be Three Persons, and thus much doctrine and theory has been written about this mystery throughout the past ages. God in the simplicity of the uniqueness of His Oneness confounds even the greatest of minds, and the richest of men, as well as the poorest of men amongst the race of mankind. But it is that They, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, have desired that it would bring to Them much pleasure, joy, delight and satisfaction, with a much greater glory as They receive the increase of Their uniqueness, and in this way, it would be of such a benefit that They create positions and raise up ones who would carry out Their plans for Them. And this, that They may share Their glorious work with these same ones who would submit themselves to become one with one another as God is One, One unto Each Other.

So therefore, have we yet understood how urgent it is for us to fulfil that which has been desired of us, of all that is contained in Their dreams, visions, hopes, and desires for and through us? And are we driven by our love for Jesus and for the Holy Spirit and for our Father in such a way that we can say that we do love Them with all our heart, all our soul, all our mind, and all our strength,[1] with the same urgent passionate drive that Jesus was focussed with that drove Him to the cross and beyond to a resurrection by the Spirit of the Resurrection? For He died not only by laying down His own life, but He gave up all that could have been His, all that this life in the flesh of a man might have brought to Him, as well as all of the majesty the Word of God did contain within Himself when He lowered Himself to become the Son of God that He could then say, “The Father is greater than I,”[2] and went of the much farther, the extra miles, and further lowered Himself to become the Son of Man that He came revealing His glory, the glory of the One and Only Son who came from the Father, full of grace and truth[3] Grace beyond our understanding and truth beyond our knowledge, and full of grace and truth beyond all of man’s wisdom that if put together it could not unravel the sheer glory of the humility of this magnanimous mystery…

And the Son, Jesus, said, “The reason My Father loves Me is that I lay down My life—only to take it up again. No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of My own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from My Father.”[4] For though all the authority to lay down His life and to take it up again was given as a command to Him, He wilfully submitted Himself into the hands of men that we would be the procurators in the manner of the preparations as we chose, desired and decided for His death… And so we tried with a violent fury in the manner that disgusts and horrifies us even today, as we are shown by the media what mankind is capable of in our wars against each other, for whatever reason we convince ourselves with to justify the action in our own minds, which drives us into that which is beyond reason. And yes, we did, we beat Him to a pulp, we shred Him and mangled Him that His appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any man and His form marred beyond human likeness.[5] But in spite of our actions, He gave to no man the glory of laying down His Spirit, but placed it back into the hands of His Father at that precise appointed time when and only when all was finished, and it was then that He gave up His Spirit that this life that He had taken upon Himself as it was, was no longer required, and so He breathed His last…

And He submitted the glorious work of His resurrection to the Holy Spirit to resurrect Him, though He Himself was and is the Resurrection. So now is the Holy Spirit the Spirit of the Resurrection, and Their unique Oneness was multiplied at many increasing levels so that the Holy Spirit would also receive of the resurrection all that He had secreted within Himself and did die to, so that the Ones He loves so fiercely would assuredly have all Their hopes, plans and dreams met with utmost certainty.

So was all of this easy? Was it easy for Jesus because He was the Word of God now become the Son of God, the Son of Man? Was it easy for Him to submit His flesh unto the hands of men, men of whom He had said, “O unbelieving generation, how long shall I stay with you? How long shall I put up with you?”[6]? Was it easy for Him to submit His authority to the Holy Spirit to raise Him when He could have done it all by Himself? Was it easy for Him to speak the word of the Father’s Heart, just and only as the Father’s Heart desired and revealed, without adding more than what He was precisely shown and heard, and was it easy for Him to then hand over the glorious work of making it all manifest to the Holy Spirit of that what was spoken in the Father’s Heart? Was it easy then for the Holy Spirit to meticulously manifest by His power, without adding to or taking away from, without deviation, every last minute glorious and absolutely breathtakingly beautiful stunning detail only that which was spoken precisely by the Word of that which was revealed of the Father’s Heart? What manner of self-control did it take for the Father to submit all that is contained within such a holy Heart, as only He has, to He who is the Word to speak it forth in all authority… an authority which took such loving heart-thumping pride in that of which He was shown, for all that the Father had was given to Him? And what manner of self-control did it take for He who is the Word to hand over all that was declared by His Voice that it lovingly and tenderly yet forcefully be brought forth by the Power of the Holy Spirit?

And when it is declared breathtaking, it is that all breath should be taken away that it would not intrude on the holiness of the glory and of the majesty and of the tremendous immense nature of the depth of the intense beauty of the Father’s frangible Heart, as spoken by the Word of the Son and brought forth by the power of the Holy Spirit in the unique Oneness of such love… such holy, holy love by the Son for the Father and such holy, holy love of the Holy Spirit for the Father and for the Son, and such holy, holy love of the Father and the Son for the holy Holy Spirit… And it is that this love that makes the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit One, is so utterly confounding in its holiness that the beauty it does bring forth is that which all of eternity is made of and it will take all of eternity for us to comprehend and become of like nature and love… For New Jerusalem is the City of Love… Its four walls are made of the four commands of love and it is those who obey these commands, who will enter to live within it and share in all of that which New Jerusalem, the Bride of Christ Jesus, will give of pleasure to her Husband, the Son of God. And those who have become one with each other that they would function in total unity as the body of Christ as one that is submitted in perfect peace to all the authority of the Head. For, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him—but God has revealed it to us by His Spirit.”[7]

For Jesus told us: “If anyone loves Me, he will obey My teaching. The Father will love him and We will come to him and make Our home with him. He who does not love Me will not obey My teaching. These words you hear are not My Own; they belong to the Father who sent Me.”[8] So, will you today answer that you do love God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind and all your strength? For Jesus also commanded us to love our neighbour as ourselves,[9] to love our enemies, do good to those who hate us, bless those who curse us and pray for those who mistreat and persecute us,[10] and to love each other as He has loved us.[11]

For Jesus’ will for us is this: “Father, My prayer is …that those who will believe in Me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as You are in Me and I am in You. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that You have sent Me. I have given them the glory that You gave Me that they may be one as We are One: I in them and You in Me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that You sent Me and have loved them even as You have loved Me.[12]

Jesus gave us the glory that we may be one and be brought to complete unity, not that we will be one, but that we may be one as They are One; this same glory He revealed when He came full of grace and truth. For it took all of His graciousness to live amongst us and to submit His flesh to man to be treated in the vilest and most cowardly of manners that we did so self-righteously display we do hold within us, so that we would be brought to repentance as the Truth revealed to us the deadly graveness and depravity we had sunk ourselves into… and all this by our own self-justifications in the disguise of the filthy rags of self-righteousness we proudly wear so vainly…

So what was it that Jesus wrote on the sand that day in the temple courts after the Pharisees brought to Him a woman caught in adultery and said, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do You say?”?[13] Did He not write just what He saw His Father had written? For He had already told the Jews that He can do nothing by Himself, but only what He sees His Father doing.[14] We know He saw His Father write the Ten Commandments on the two tablets of stone and the requirements of the Law on the hearts of the Gentiles,[15] so was it that He wrote a law which could cancel out that law of stoning? For God had said, “I desire mercy, not sacrifice, and acknowledgment of God rather than burnt offerings.”[16] Or was it that He showed them clearly the log in their own eyes, for He then said to them, “If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her”?[17] Was it that He wrote for them to do to others as they would have others do to them? I do not profess to know, but I do know that Jesus caused them all to confront their own sinfulness that they could no longer condemn this woman and one by one, from the older ones first, they left. “For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” [18]

So, this time given to us to become one to be a precisely prepared appropriate player in this end game in the planned positions desired for us by our Gracious God, is coming to an end, for it is required that we be one that the world may know that the Father sent His Son and has loved us who have obeyed His commands and the Father has loved the Son who obeyed the commands given to Him. For what justification can you give your Father that you could not make yourself one with your brothers and sisters that would allow you to remain standing before Him? Could you say that they were not worthy of you making yourself one with them as they were not of the same caliber as you? Would not the Father say to you that He loved them as He loves you, for He chose them just as He chose you? Could you say that they had wronged you? For would He not say that you have wronged them? Could you say that they spoke ill of you or hurt you in a certain way? Would He not tell you to forgive them and be gracious to them as He has forgiven you and been gracious to you first? Would He not ask you whether you went to your brother or sister in the prescribed way and asked what they meant, for perhaps it was your vain imaginations that led you to believe they spoke ill of you or hurt you, or is it that you believe in such a way because it justifies your actions or desires or motives or self-esteem? Can you in all truth say that you actually understand what the motives of their hearts were and are, or whether you even heard or saw correctly, or was it that you are listening to another voice? Or perhaps you just don’t like their character, but what would the Father say to you, for did He not create them as He did you? Do you think perhaps that your brothers and sisters do not carry the workload enough, or is it that they are not as gifted as you or maybe it is that they are more gifted than you? Would your justifications stand before Him? Do they now? Does whatever reason you have allowed to darken your counsel justify you from withholding that which Jesus would desire from us, that we be one as He is One with the Father, and in complete unity, so that the world would know the Father sent His One and Only Son, and that the Father has loved us as He has loved His Son? Do you really think that it is for Them to once again do it for us to make us one, for is it not now our work to do it for Them, Father, Son and Holy Spirit?

For it was not that the glory was given that we will be one, but that we may be one, for it is the very help, this grace and truth, that we need that changes our hearts, our souls, our minds, our motives, our attitudes and even our flesh that we would by our own free will make ourselves one with each other… Because our love for our Father, our love for Jesus and our love for the Holy Spirit has driven us to such a place of desperation to bring about all that They have desired into fruition that we would lay down our own lives for each other, not that we may need to throw our bodies in front of another before a bullet or a sword, but that first, we would lay down our desires, our ambitions, our hopes and our dreams for each other, that it is not that we are first but truly last, and not last that we may be first, but last to be last, and as we all become of the one spirit, we will discover that we are last, side by side of each other, a long thin line…

For who of us could stand before our God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who are of such holy grace and truth, and remain standing whilst professing love for Them without honoring Them by fulfilling Their desire that we be one as They are One? Who could stand? Who would dare stand before Them when we were handed on a platter of the purest of gold this opportunity of all opportunities and still try to justify our reasoning and actions? Our mouths would dry up and our lips would become stone and fall off in the utter wretchedness of the reality of the hardness that has remained in our hearts, even with all that They have poured out upon us… all of Their forgiveness, all of Their sanctification, all of Their justification for us, all of the righteous clothing given us by the sacrifice of our Lord, all of the revelations, all of Their Presence, all of Their manifestations, all of the visions and dreams, all of the gifting, all of the foretaste of Their power, all of Their grace, all of Their mercy, all of Their glory, all of Their life and all of Their life eternal, all of Their protection, all of Their wisdom, all of Their knowledge and all of Their understanding, all of Their truth, all of Their imaginings for us, and all of Their L/love and everything that love does contain… all of Themselves… and all given with such patient endurance and perseverance… For it is for us to fulfill that what is bound on Earth is bound in Heaven, for this work is yet to be completed, and though it has been done and given freely, it is that the world will know that the Father sent His Son by the many becoming one that the joining of our lights in unity will make the light much brighter so that it will draw all men to Jesus, yet cause those who love the darkness to fulfill their role as the Word of God has declared…

So now, by your own free will, driven by the desperation of your love to fulfil all that is required for the arrival of Jesus without any further delay, slam that stake end of your cross deep into that pride so that as you display respectful recognition that the Father protects your brother and your sister as He protects you, Jesus’ request to His Father is fulfilled: “Holy Father, protect them by the power of Your Name—the Name You gave Me—so that they may be one as We are One.”[19] And again, take a mallet and firmly hammer that cross even deeper in that it may never be pulled up to give any form of life or excuse to an iota of anything which has held you back to resurface its insidious inexplicable hold ever again.

So when They, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, come seeking ‘proof of love’, it will be displayed to the whole world as a testimony that the Father did send His One and Only Son, Jesus, and that He loves us who have obeyed the commands of His Son as He loves His Son who obeyed His commands to the very last letter by the nature of The Word and the power of the Holy Spirit… for He truly is The Righteous Father of the One and Only Righteous Son, made manifest by the Spirit of Righteousness for all to see in all Their intangible, tangible holy glory…
