Dangerous people are people who learn to love… learn to love much because they have been forgiven much… for when we are forgiven much, we love much …and when we love much, we see much, and so clearly see what was never seen and see why it remained hidden even though it stood right within our midst. And that is to see what Mary saw… for out of her pure love of God, which flowed from the power of His forgiveness… the power that allows us to see the details that are already there… she saw the Son of God as He prepared Himself for the cross, and beneath, the Man who is the Image of God, who does exactly as God commands Him. She saw the Man in the Lord, and the fullness of God in Christ. For when your much love is from the forgiveness you have received, you see what has remained unseen …and Mary responded to what had remained unseen, and so perfectly met the needs of the Lord and the Man in the Lord …and because she remained without any self exaltation or self preservation, she remained always able to see and hear what was never seen or heard.

Hearing what she was seeing and seeing what she was hearing, and from that source of pure love did flow the beautiful thing that she did, and it flowed without restraint because she was fulfilling the command of the Father… for she was in the presence of God, as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit gave unveiling to the True Man of the flesh… even the One who would be her Messiah …the One who was her King… the One she would follow back into the perfect Image of God.

For held on the cutting edge of the Sword of God’s word, did the first listener of Jesus abide… and in her abidance she fulfilled what was given her to do without a word being spoken.

For there is an ability and inability to see the needs of Jesus, and for Mary it was the ability to see the need to anoint, and so lived the emotion of God’s sacrifice, but for the disciples it was the inability to see the need of such outpouring upon Him, and so experienced the pain of waste… for how little they understood of the truth, that the poor they would always have with them, but Jesus they would not always have, for He was going back to the Father who sent Him… for they are One whether in flesh or in spirit …whether on Earth or in Heaven …whether nailed to a cross or seated on a throne.

For the Son was given to live the most private longing of His Father’s heart… to have life brought into its new dimension …to be lived in its limitless frontiers as flesh wraps itself around the realm of spirit as He who is Life experiences life in a form that is now clothed in flesh.

But His dream, being not what it was going to take, but what would be the outcome of the sacrifice it took …and that outcome given to the Son who was the Sacrifice, for Him to then live it in its divine elements, for such was its elevation in the Father’s heart, but yet the cost to live again in its pure form would be unbearable – but the outcome of such sacrifice and the living of the life it would bring, would be of the magnitude of the S/sacrifice itself.

Yet the disciples passion for the body of Christ and how to look after it was dismissed as they turned from Him as He was anointed by Mary, and looked to the interests of sinful men …or should I say looked to the interest of themselves… for the passion Mary had for the body of Christ and the way she tended it, is the passion that all His disciples are to have for the body of Christ, which is now the Church of which Jesus is the Head …and it could only be learned from Mary because she was the only one to fulfil the command of the Father even before she heard it in its spoken release.

And so what she did was to be told wherever, and if we go the extra mile, whenever… the Gospel of Jesus Christ is preached… for what caring for the body of Christ the disciples of Jesus may have, never did it form into a passion that could bring honour to the Passion of the Christ… and so what Mary did was to be told in memory of her because the powerful revelation that came through her was not only for the time Jesus was on the Earth in the flesh, but to reach into the times ahead when we saw Jesus no more, and the Church was now the body of our Lord Jesus Christ…

But it is only when we sit in impenetrable stillness and quietness that there is the presence of what we have never seen or heard …in silent listening, the seeing of the magnificence of what is revealed… and in forgiveness and love, the remembrance of what was never given to remembrance and the forgiveness of what was never in need of forgiveness.

For we have never remembered Jesus for the Man He truly was, for it was not revealed …because man had fallen into sin, and so now His life was not His own to live, but to God it was given to do His will and not His own… given as a sacrifice so the work of God may be displayed in Him.

For who were His descendants or who were there among His generation, who even considered that He was cut off from the land of the living and assigned a grave with the wicked, being buried like a criminal in a rich man’s grave …and even though no violence or deceit was found in Him, His appearance was disfigured beyond that of any man …His form marred beyond any human likeness, becoming an object of horror as His face and whole appearance was beaten and bloodied to the point where one would scarcely know He was the Son of all Men… let alone the Son of God…

And when we see Him upon that cross, we see no more Man who is the Image of God, but see what sin does to God’s Image, and if this is what it did to God’s Image, then what it did to God Himself we cannot even bear to know or imagine. And it is not until when we see Jesus, we see He is the revelation of the Father and His Empires, that we can begin to understand and have truly formed in us the nobility and grace that is far beyond mere human elegance… for from such disfigurement from sin does God desire to transfigure us back to the consummate Image of the Godhead through Jesus Christ the Son of God …the Son of Man… who became Man in the flesh so men of the flesh could be brought back to being sons of God as first desired and so created.

For only from that place of understanding, can we glimpse the Kingdom God prepared for His Son, prepared for Himself and prepared for Man as He sat down to create …and He did not deserve the suffering it brought Him but only the glory and honour that was due Him… for He asked nothing of us, but only what would bring us into what He had already prepared …into what no eye had seen, no ear had heard, and what no mind had imagined …for it was a life we could never even have dreamed of… for it was a life with God… a life without sin…

And so we have never remembered Jesus as the Man He truly was: The Man without sin, or that when the Father first created it was a world without sin…

For the Man in our Lord and Christ, is the Man who is the Image of God in the Lord… the Man who was pre-existent in God before the creation of the world.

Pre-existent as a desire, thought and word from eternity and then existed in the flesh the moment the Word of God became flesh – then Adam forged out of thought and desire as a forerunner of an Image which was the first of many duplicates of the Original that pre-existed… but he was not of the word – Jesus is the only Man who started with the word in Him and only Jesus sows it into every man. For in all things God has made it that we always need Jesus… the Father has made it that we always need His Son …there is not one thing that we do not need Him for, even to the point where He is the Son we never had, and the Son who will make us the father we never were, which will then make us think about our Father we never appreciated, and perhaps then appreciate the creation that came from Him as one would appreciate the Father from whom it came.

For we are to be a man who has now become a father to the Son, who is also the Son of the Father of all creation… the Father from whom all Fatherhood has derived its Name …so as to know and live the perfection of the Fatherhood of God …and that it can only come when we are a father to the perfect Son …a father to the Son of Man …a father to Jesus Christ…

And so when we see this Man who is the Image of God in the Lord, we see what we have never seen before… the emotions, thoughts, feelings and motives of a Man who is without sin, and then we see all those who were Man, the Image of God, male and female, as they are without sin… because what we call man now is not Man, but sons and daughters of Adam, and even though all who are born again are children of God… only in Christ alone is the Man who is the exact and perfect Image that God always held in Himself concerning what the man should be… and when we see Him we will know what we will become… but yet we continue to see Him as Jesus the Man with sin just like us, and think of Him as a man just like us …but even though Jesus the Man and the Man who is Jesus is a part of He who is the Man in the Lord …the Man in the Lord is different…

He is the Image of God in the Lord – Jesus is not the Image of God, He is God.

He is the exact representation of the invisible God in the flesh and form of a man… but the Man in the Lord is the Man who, being without sin, became sin so we could be the righteousness of God, and He remained without sin, for in His continual silence He not only transferred sin to the Son of Man but negated it …for the Son of Man was the Man in the Lord becoming the sin offering – the Son of God the sacrifice for that sin. And on that cross the sinless Man said nothing …not speaking until He could say, ‘It is finished.’ For the Man without sin completes exactly all things God appoints for Him to do, until it is finished, because you do not prove you are the perfect Image of God until you successfully complete exactly that which the Father has commanded you – that which God has commanded you …for only then can you say you are the true Image of God – Man, male and female as God always held in Himself concerning what man should be, and would be, for the Lamb was slain even before the creation of the world, because the Covenant for the Forgiveness of Sins was to be the greatest Covenant of all, because it would allow the Holy Spirit to raise sons and daughters for God out of those redeemed by Christ, so that amongst the redeemed would be ones who could grow to the fullness of the stature of Christ, being themselves just like the only Begotten …for this Covenant not only gave revelation to God in Man… as in the Son of Man and the Son of God …but unveiled such personal revelation of a Father who had a Son who then became a Man, who in the flesh, obeyed exactly the commands given Him by His God and His Father until He could say the words which hold in them a love… a life… an eternal existence that only the Father from whom all fathers have their fatherhood would sacrifice the most precious thing He had to secure it for all …and all He has for us is held in Him… the One He sacrificed… the One He shared with the world …the Son He shared so fully and personally that even man now in God’s Image could call Him ‘Son’ ~

Because the only Son of God submitted Himself to being also the Son of Man – being the Son of all men, and indeed an honour for men, but what honour is given Jesus …what honour is given God’s Son unless He is the Son of all men who are now restored back to the perfect Image of God.

For what sort of father would we prove to be to a Son who had already been crucified for the sins of the man His father had become …but yet what other way do we know what it is like to experience perfect Fatherhood …for it is only when we have a Son like Jesus Christ, who became the sin offering and the Sacrifice for the forgiveness of all sin… a Son who redeemed the lost honour of God His Father and man His father by coming not only as the Son of God but also as the Son of Man… for if He does not have a father who is a man …as in being declared Man …male and female as first created… then He is not the Son of Man… the Son of all men …the Son of all mankind.

And yet when this Son became a Man, not even His mother Mary saw Him as anything other than a Son, and it was not until He was on the cross and He gave her to John the Beloved did she catch a glimpse of the Man He had become …the Man who would reveal the Messiah.

For the Man He had become was because of the Son He already was… because of the Father He always had… and only in Him would God’s will be done.

And for our face to remain without veil to the all of which Jesus truly is… is to continue to behold in the Word of God as in a mirror, the glory of the Lord as seen in the face of Jesus Christ – as it constantly transfigures us into His very own Image and Likeness… transfigures us into what we are to be in Him from what we already are, in ever increasing splendour and from one degree of glory to another …for this transfiguration comes from the Lord Spirit, so that we may reflect the glory of the Lord as we become more like Jesus the only Begotten Son …the only sinless Man …therefore the only One who could redeem all men back into God’s perfect Image as He held in His heart His Father’s Name to the exclusion of all else… never allowing it to ever depart from Him or for another to take its place …and it embraced His flesh given for us to eat and penetrated His blood given to us to drink, for the Father’s longing to have sons and daughters inseparable from …and inseparably like His only Beloved Son whom He loves and with whom He is well pleased, was more than Jesus could bear… but the power of such love between Father and Son would be the power of His cross… would be the power that opened the Father’s eternal dwellings to sons and daughters who are now just like Jesus… and the power with which God will open His future to His creation by His creative genius. And so as when we see Jesus we will know what we will become, so when we see the dimensions of God’s will, the dimensions of the Father’s future, we will celebrate as we will mourn …we will rejoice as we will cry …we will dance as we will fall prostrate at the unveiling of His Final Achievement that first began when He put His hand to dust to form Adam – the copy of the Original whose majesty and magnificence remained unsoiled and untouched in the Holy Sanctuary of God’s thoughts, desires and word until the appointed time of His unveiling – not as an enthroned King but as a Sacrificial Lamb who went in silence to the slaughter.

For it was not My will Father, but Your will be done, and if it was any other way, then the principles of the Divine Godhead would have been compromised – because God does not change His code of living, His nature of giving, His character of Self, nor His Image or His Likeness, for Divine Life is to be lived in its limitless bounds …with God the Father in fullness of revelation… made known by a Son who is the Word of God who submitted to full disrobe, as the Lamb God sent was stripped, shamed and slain as God revealed Man who pre-existed in Him in all His nakedness – in all His splendour – in all His magnificence – in all His sinless attire – and who could speak any words which could portray the anguish and the glory of the Lamb slain for the W/word of God had been rejected …the Son of God had been crucified …the Father of all creation had been silenced in grief, as now sons of Adam thought they had the power over Jesus… thought the cross was their victory… thought that by force they took His blood and made His body their own vengeful pursuit upon this blasphemer of God.

For they thought it was their will being done …for to men He would never be any more than a carpenter… never any more than a drunkard and a glutton… never any more than a friend of sinners… never any more than a man just like us …for He was judged and He was crucified for they would never accept His testimony, never submit to His truth, never seek His justice, but thought they could make Him out to be a liar… thought they could make Him look a fool …thought they could make Him stumble as their words sought to trap Him – for they thought they could kill the One who had no beauty about Him to attract us to Him, but yet all the majesty about Him to restore us back Him . For so blind we are when we cannot see what is the beauty of the One, who when we see Him, we see the Face of the Father who sent Him that we might follow Him back into the perfect Image of our God and our Father… so blind we are when we cannot even glimpse the magnificence of the Man who is without sin, or begin to see the precious wonder of why He took up His cross and obeyed exactly as He was commanded.

For it would be nothing less then a cross before a crown – shame before a throne – humility before honour, because this Son would be the Son who would reveal the heart of the Father just as surely as He would become the Man who would reveal Christ our Saviour… and He is the richest Wellspring that can come into our life because He is the only Man who is able to completely and perfectly redeem the Image of God in man… and God will be proved true through Him, as all men will be proved liars because of Him –

For He humbled Himself unto death and did not exalt Himself unto Kingship… for even though He had given proof that He was the invulnerable, invincible and untemptable Man who has always been in God …the True Man does not exalt Himself to be King or humble Himself unto death without the will of His God being done …for it is always God who exalts and always God who humbles, and then it is what we do with that exaltation or that humbling that will either glorify God or magnify ourselves ~

For God made the flesh to reveal and live the all of the dream He had for Himself …but we took it as our own and used it to reveal ourselves… we thought it was for us to esteem ourselves above God who is Spirit …to lift us above all things He stood for and everything He is… but without Him we are nothing… without Him we could only do evil… being without restraint …empty, undisciplined and W/wordless vessels with no wisdom or knowledge or understanding or appreciation of God who is Love… of God who is Spirit …of God who is Good …of God who wrapped Himself in His zeal and saved us from ourselves.

For sin tempts God to start again, but our hearts should be filled to overflowing with thanksgiving that our God cannot be tempted.

But yet what did men do when a just Man came into the world …when a Man full of grace and truth entered the realm of flesh and blood… when God’s Word came cloaked in a body that had been so especially prepared for Him, that when He put off the mortal body, He exposed the powers of evil and through His Person openly put them to shame – what they did is that they scourged Him, beat Him, reviled Him and crucified Him and then buried Him in a rich man’s grave…

For that was men’s justice on One who in perfect obedience was crucified, but yet did not fight or shout or cry out or raise His voice in the streets, nor a bruised reed did He break, nor the smallest hope did He quench until He brings full justice with His final victory ~

And if we live and abide in Him and His words live and abide in us, when we look into the eyes of our enemies, we will see ourself, for we will see the sameness of all men who have fallen from the glory of being all of what God is, and all of what He still wants to be… and in that moment we will know the futility of rebellion and the power of forgiveness… for only against God have we sinned …and only because of God are we forgiven …and only through God can we forgive as we were first forgiven, and so live as we first meant to live, because He kept intact what should exist and made known the delusion of what did not exist at all.

For Satan was not aware of the pre-existence of the Man in the Lord and thought the man on Earth was the first Adam …but in truth the first Adam is the last Adam, for Adam, the Man in the Lord already existed before the Earth was formed, and so when the Father put His hand to dirt, the man Adam who came out of the dirt was the Image of the Man who was already pre-existent before the world was formed. So Jesus is the last Adam because He is the first Adam …because the last will be first and the first will be last… and because HE IS the first Man in the Lord, He is able to redeem the Image because Satan did not soil the Original but only soiled the copy, so through Jesus, God always had the Original by which to judge all men.

For again God was underestimated by Satan… for when the Original proved itself invulnerable, invincible and untemptable to Satan, the power of sin was broken and all the Image of God in man would be made new again… for there still exists that which should exist, for the standard remained unchanged so there can be no accusation, no judgement, no comparisons, no ifs…

Satan could never say to God, ‘Is that really Your Image’… ‘Is that really the way Your Image should be’… For if Jesus, the Man in the Lord, was not pre-existent, then every man God restored Satan could accuse and say, ‘If this is really the restored Image of God, then why does it still sin and not obey You exactly’ …because the Lord obeyed exactly… resisting all temptation and never succumbing to sin, so much so, that He was not degraded by it even when He was made responsible for it.

And who could prove Him guilty of sin, not one, for what He lay down was a life without sin or rebellion so as to become all the sin of the rebellious world.

And as Jesus Himself is the Word of God in the flesh, only He knows how sharp the Sword of the Word is …and how it cuts and divides, pierces and sets free… for to the glory of the Father who sent Him, and for the honour of the Holy Spirit who raised Him, He will raise all those given Him on the last day, because it was always ‘Not My will Father, but Your will be done’… and it was …and it will be ~

But yet such was the height from which we had fallen that a man to us was a man like us – but if we had dared to look into this Man’s eyes to see the heart of the Father, the heart of the Creator, we would have known it was no son of Adam who took full responsibility for the sins of a creation, which was not his …no son of Adam who mastered those sins, paid for them, freed us from them, and delivered us from the evil one …for it was never a son of Adam who was silent before the Lord or obeyed exactly as he was commanded… never a son of Adam who remained without sin, proving himself to be the invulnerable, invincible and untemptable man who was the perfect Image of God… God the Creator… God the Father… God the Son… and God the Holy Spirit…

But only the Son of God, the Son of the Father, the Son of the Spirit, the One who was Firstborn over all God’s creation – for He was all of which Adam was not but was meant to be… and so when we see Him we will know what we will become, and repent, for it was what we always should have been, but were not… what we always should have taken to its destination, but did not …for we were never the Man Jesus became… because we were never the Son He was… because we never knew the Father we always had ~

But yet in the beginning, God was full of anticipation that we would obey and carry what He still wanted to be in our flesh and blood to the place of its destiny, but we trampled it underfoot and killed it just as surely as we trampled underfoot and killed the Lord of Glory.

For who was God that we were ever mindful of Him – the Creator that we ever cared for Him – the Father that we ever listened to Him – the Holy Spirit that we ever acknowledged Him – the Son that we would ever esteem Him …for we killed Him for He claimed to the be Son of God – hated Him for the words He spoke and the miracles He performed – cursed Him because all the people were drawn to Him and ran after Him – murmured about Him for He had such authority to forgive sins, and despised Him because He raised the dead son and healed the sick mother… and yet He was the W/word we never listened to… the Father we never clung to …the Image we never stayed true to …the silence we never mastered and the sacrifice we never appreciated… and yet still we never desired to remember Him as the Man He truly was, for His life was never His own to live… as surely as He is the Man we never forgave for the Man He always was, for the life He lay down was for the life we were to live… and so we weep and cry and mourn for our neglect and dismissal of Him… and repent and break our hearts for our treatment of Him.

For our neglect of Him is also the neglect we showed after the Father carefully fashioned us out of the dust to be the Image of the Man He would be if in the form of flesh …our dismissal of Him is also our dismissal of any thanksgiving when out of man the female Image of God was brought forward and unveiled …and our treatment of Him is also the treatment we afforded to the all of which God the Father had always held in Himself concerning what man in the form of flesh should be… and would be… for the cost of such an achieved dream had already been paid for long before He bent down to give form to man, as His thoughts and desires surrounded and embraced His Image as the breath of Life breathed into it, all of who God was and all of what He still would be.

And if we sit in silent repentance in awe of His forgiveness, we will rejoice in the freedom we have now been given in Christ to take up the right to not only know who is man …but to know this Man in whom alone we are declared the true man, male and female as only the Father did see us so long ago… and only from that declaration from His lips can we come near to being able to say the work in us by the Holy Spirit is fulfilled and finished… for those words will penetrate our soul and our spirit, dividing even our joints and marrow, cutting deep into our innermost thoughts and desires… and so we must learn from Him how it is possible for sinners like us to live in the outcome of such words, as we hold on to the truth that only through Christ who strengthens us, can we say such words and still remain alive as the consequences that come from their utterance are brought into the fullness of their manifestation …and that is to learn that only in the silence of the Lamb slain can we listen to hear those final words which have held in them what is as precious as the last tear of the River of Life.

‘Father when’ …for the silence they were held in is the silence before the Lord that will allow us to bear what the Father is waiting to unveil in our silent listening …and waiting for us to reveal in His silent watching …for only then does come our true disrobing as we submerge into the depth of His sacrifice to then arise into the glory of the purpose of the True Man …and then for the pure voice of that man to be now born out of the sound of such silence …the silence that gave birth to the operatic genius of God… the silence that gave slaughter to the Lamb of God… for in His silent thoughts, which caressed His word as it was in spoken release, did the Opera of Thought manifest Word in a measure of pure passion as profound and unfathomable as God’s love for His creation …as a Father’s love for His children ~

But it is to listen to Jesus in the way the Father commanded and not in the way men may suggest –

For we are not to listen to Him as if we are listening to someone who is just like us …like a man guilty just like us …but are to be listening as ones who are listening to the Father’s Beloved… as ones who are listening to His Son whom He loves and with whom He is well pleased …listening as ones who are listening to the Son who has lived perfect obedience abiding in perfect love, and that is to know what it took to come to the place where Man in God was fully manifest and God in Man was fully manifest… nothing to be added, nothing to be taken away, and to know what it took to say, ‘I am Man’… what it took to say, ‘It is fulfilled and finished’… for that is to say you are the Man the Father would have been if He had stepped into the flesh …and those words cut like a sword into the heart of the Father, as the Holy Spirit refines our love for this Man Jesus more and more, bringing it into its pure form so we can see what Mary only saw… and be so mindful of what was so magnificent and without flaw that it was not given to remembrance until we had forgiven what was never in need of forgiveness… and that is to go beyond the extra mile… and so see what we are not supposed to see, for when we do, we might just be inspired to finish the journey without no more counting the miles, nor the cost of doing all of which we are commanded to do …for that is how deep the forgiveness of the Father and Son etches into our soul, heart, mind, spirit, and flesh.

For the Tree of Life never did bear its fruit in the Garden when Adam and Eve dwelt there… for it was not yet in fruit because Adam had not yet eaten from the other trees, and it would only bear fruit when Adam had finished eating from the other trees as he was commanded.

For the fruit of the Tree of Life only comes when a man obeys exactly as commanded …because love planted that Tree and sacrifice grew and matured it… and only in the fullness of time did that tree say ‘Father forgive’… and we alone cannot produce the fruit of such forgiveness, for only in Christ, our Redeemer, can we say, ‘Father forgive’ …only in Jesus the Son who became a Man can we say, ‘I am Man’ …for only because of Jesus do we have forgiveness of sins that extend to not only being forgiven but far into where they are also forgotten …far into where sin is no more… and far into where God is all in all ~

But yet even though angels thought it miraculous to see the Holy One as the Son of Man, they are not men and they cannot appreciate it – for it takes another man to appreciate the Man that is in the Lord… and when we finally do appreciate Him, our hearts will be captivated and torn open with a cry for remembrance of what was not revealed…

But there can be no remembrance of what was never revealed when we cannot forgive what was never forgiven …for we never forgave the One who was obedient because we remained disobedient …we never forgave the One who was without sin because we remained sinners …we never forgave the One who listened in silence because we were never in silence to listen …never forgave the One who took the punishment that was ours because we never thought that we were guilty of such punishment… and never forgave the One who claimed God was His Father, because we never knew God as Father, and so then how could we ever forgive the One who went to the cross and said, ‘Father forgive’… for we thought we did not have anything to be forgiven of… or was it that we did not think that what we had done, we could ever be forgiven of… but this Man Jesus, who carried the Name of His Father to the cross and to the beyond of its victory, carving it into its beams as the blood of the Lamb flowed and etched deep into its splintered frame, suffered the agony of the cross so as to bear the fruit of forgiveness …never counting the cost or the miles that it would take to bear such fruit in all of its maturity… for when He did, it would also bring forth unbearable pain to His Father’s heart for His only Begotten Son would be crucified… for the fruit of the Tree of Life, in the fullness of its perfection and power, was so precious and priceless, that it can only come when a Man of the flesh does exactly as He is commanded by His God and His Father… until it is finished… whether that be seated on a Throne or nailed to a cross ~

But as the sinners we are, we never cared to know who was Man that we should be mindful of Him or who was Man that we should forgive Him …for we could never understand or comprehend Man as He was without sin, and so we had no idea of what and who truly was in our midst when He walked amongst us, and only when He had gone did we catch a glimpse of the way His robe flowed and moved as He walked, and how the train of His garment cascaded as He ascended to the right hand of the Father. For who could understand, let alone see majesty that came not from the beauty of the flesh, but from the One the body of flesh was prepared for… for even though He walked amongst us full of grace and truth with the purpose of His coming held in His every step …the glimpse we caught of Him did not give us the full understanding of the Man He truly was, nor the sin He came to forgive, nor the sacrifice it took, nor the elation of the eternity we can now live with our Father that He sealed forever with the blood of His cross…

For it was a Man and not God who would reveal the Christ, and yet who was the True Man that we were mindful of Him …for we chose not our Father’s way to bring us into the fullness of His Son, but chose our way… for right from the beginning we stamped our name on everything the Father brought to us in self exaltation and in self preservation, so our ingratitude surfaced even before the Father spoke to us of His plans to prosper us and not to harm us…

So right from the beginning it was never God’s will be done – but always our will be done – and by our own efforts we made sure it was …but yet by our own sin, it would always remain intact that God’s perfect will would always be done …by a Son who became a Man, who would declare, ‘Not My will Father but Your will be done’… and in a loud voice made heard, ‘It is finished’… ‘It is fulfilled’… and only God alone knows what was finished in its fulfilment – more than our unglorified mortal bodies could bear to carry or know the fullness of ~

For how could we contain such an outpouring of revelation that comes forth when the fullness of the Godhead is in total disrobe, so as to be seen as They really are …heard as They really are… in the light of the majestic unfolding of what They still want to be …of what They still want to say …for it is of Imperial Empires …it is the out flowing of the Source of Life at its most glorious revelation of a Father’s love – a Son’s obedience – God’s will being done – for it is the eternal dimensions of the Father in His fullness of attire when sin is no more …a holy sight not fit for sinful man to behold, but desired to be beheld …for to behold it, is to be held in Jesus, so that our face will remain without veil so as to clearly see what was held unseen, but yet right there in all of its detail in the disfigured and marred body of the Man who was the Christ… the Lord who is God.

For Jesus was no more of the form or appearance of any other man on the cross He had to bear at Calvary… for He was not like any other man or any other son …for His eternal love for His Father and God would take Him to the cross, where the blood of His cross would be the blood of the Sacrifice given in love …was the blood of the Lamb sent to the slaughter… was the blood of the Man who said, ‘It is finished’… was the blood that touched the face of God when first blood was shed… for the Life was in the blood …and the blood was in the Man …the Son of God …the Son of Man and all that should exist would always exist, for God will not cease to exist or change His nature or course for the Sacrifice has been made – so the work is finished – and now His creation can only glorify Him… exists now to only glorify He who created it …to know He who loved it …to know He who died for it …for that was the magnitude of the sacrifice that now creation can only exist to continue to make known God is Love… and the Father who is the full expression of the love of God at its most elite and intimate level as the only Begotten Son He had lives the dream the Father alone had dreamt, as the Father takes His place to watch the eternities fully open, their worship in full display, as the Son who walks in His Father’s love lives the life that is now His own to live …the life only a perfect Father would dream for Him to live, taking it into its eternities of revelation and yet in the living of it, He will reveal the heart of the Father even more as He brings to Him the sons and daughters of His eternities, as He experiences through Jesus the amazing dimensions that the flesh can bring to He who is Spirit and Truth …For the fullness of the life it brings was given to His only Begotten Son who was with Him in the beginning and knew Him from the beginning and loved Him even before the beginning.

And yet we let fall to the ground the fulfilment of the yearnings of His soul when we fail to listen to Jesus in the way the Father commanded us – for in His longing for us to call Him Father, He said, ‘listen to My Beloved Son …the One whom I love, for with Him I am well pleased’ …for it was only Jesus who could reveal the Father we never knew …so that we can come to Him with a knowing of Him that pierces to the core of our hearts and His heart …as the Sword of His word is driven deep into our souls as we see what has remained unseen through listening as ones who know they are listening to the Son who became the Man He was… because of the Father He had …for Jesus was indeed His Father’s Son… and the Father was indeed the Father of the Man He became when Word became flesh.

And so what a Man He became …because of what a Father He always had …and if we had desired to know Him as that Father, what a man we would have become, because of what sons we would have been… but yet we hung onto being the sons of Adam as if it was something to be clung onto… always claiming that God was our Father …always boasting we were His sons, but yet never acknowledging our lost state of existence or our demise into sin …never crying out in our loneliness for the aloneness of our Father, so as to know how to truly become a man who brings honour to His Name… laughter to His soul, rejoicing to His Spirit, love to His Son… justice to His Life …for we rejected His Image, and yet thought our own self righteousness made us in right standing before Him as we stood there and counted the Lord’s sinlessness against Him, as He counted our sins not against us …but forgave us for we did not know what we were doing… for we thought our bravado proved that we were man… thought that the language of lies said we were man and thought the counterfeit elation we lived in was the standard to be desired by all – but yet it was no standard at all, and it was never meant to be desired by all… for the standard that always existed and remained unchanged, was to be the desire to be had by all …for that was the only standard by which we could come to know God as Father.

For it was the standard it took for a Man of the flesh to reveal the Father who is Spirit …and the standard it took for a Man without sin to reveal the Christ who was slain …the Christ who would die so the Image of God in Man could be restored… and man raised back into his fullness of power and declared with the power of God’s forgiveness, to be truly sons and daughters of the eternal Father who put His hand to dust in the hope of having many sons and daughters just like Jesus…

For the power of the Kingdom of Christ was to be held in a man such as this …but when a man does not want to repent of his sins, he does not listen to the commands given him… and so how then can there be remembrance of what was forgotten, and forgiveness of what was never forgiven …if we never repent and listen…

For the total disfigurement of Jesus beyond all human likeness was how far man had fallen from not only being the Image and Likeness of God …but how far we had fallen from even the desire to be of the Image and Likeness of God …but yet we thought it was Him and not us… and so never desired to forgive Him, for He was all of what we thought we already proved we were ~

For with pride, we thought we were invincible, invulnerable, and untemptable …but in truth, we were tempted and deceived and did succumb to the rebellious nature, and so desert the Father who loved us as we made ourself vulnerable to Satan by our own ingratitude to the One who formed us, spoke to us, walked with us and revealed to us, and we proved it by always speaking when we should have been silent… proved it by our arrogance in disobedience… proved it by a refusal to repent and believe, and so we had already given proof that we were rebels of the cross …blasphemers of the Name and sinners with no remorse and no shame …and yet like ones who have on their minds the things of men and not the things of God, we unashamedly asked for more …so much more that at the place of the Sacrifice, men thought God was their Father …thought Jesus was their victim… thought they had the victory over the One God sent… thought they had the power to release Him or condemn Him… even thought they had made an end to His life when in truth it was only the beginning of ours!!

And as long as we refuse to have our thoughts held captive to Jesus, so as to know that He was not just like us …and as long as we never care to listen as ones who are listening to Someone who is not just like us …then just as we did never acknowledge the fall of Man …so will we never acknowledge the Man who is the True Man …and so never take up our cross and follow Him back into the perfect Image of God …because this Man Jesus manifests God’s strange and alien ways by the absence of sin and the presence of perfection… and with Him there is no contortion or twisting or moulding to conform to us and what we want, but the purity of the love and forgiveness… the purity of the concept and perspective so undiluted and perfect, that it can only be moulded to God who is without flaw or blemish. And if we do not rest in the silence of His presence so as to listen and to hear as we have been commanded, we can never be mindful of what was never given to remembrance, and so never be given a remembrance of what we have never as yet wanted to remember …for how can we be given remembrance of the Man without sin when we will not even acknowledge the man of sin we have become …but when we do… if we do… we will know without doubt or speculation how magnificent the Man in whom rests the power of the Kingdom really is to behold …and how precious it is to know this Man the Father called Jesus …for He is the only Man without sin… the only Man who is the exact and perfect Image of God who is without flaw or blemish… and that is to be made privy to the informal nature of the Man in the Lord as only seen and known by the Father and the Holy Spirit.

The informal nature and character of the Man without sin held within the formality of the Lord who is the radiance of God’s glory …held unseen because we have never remembered Him for the sinless Man He truly is …for so precious it is, that we cannot remain in the hearing and the seeing of its revelation if we are also seeking self exaltation or self preservation …and so such knowing will be guarded and protected …kept hidden and surrounded by all of which He means to the Father and the Holy Spirit, until we are ones who the Holy Spirit has made fit to behold its magnificence and to hear and see what it is that is so glorious about Him… for when we hear it and see it, we do not speak of it, but can only forsake all else and all others, for we have seen now what is the magnificence of the Man who has not sinned and is without a fingerprint of Satan on Him… and we will never forget it, for it will sear into our spirit as well as our soul and our flesh as our heart races at the very thought of Him… for because of His silent listening… His complete obedience… His unbearable sacrifice… His consummate love… His resolute focus… His intimate knowing of the pathway held in His victory the Tree of Life produced its fruit… and as we have all proved we are all sinners in need of complete salvation, then there is not one, who if not completely abiding in Jesus and His words abiding in us to the forsaking of all else and all others, who will produce this fruit in the fullness of its power…

For the man in whom rests the power of the Kingdom is the man who forgives… not as men forgive but as the Father and the Son forgive… for They forgive as They would forgive Each Other…

And so such is the Covenant between Them, that only living and abiding in Jesus with His words living and abiding in us, can forgiveness flow from its source of pure love…

But yet the forgiveness of the One who is without sin is seen as no forgiveness at all …yet is to be desired by all …for it is a forgiveness for being the Man He truly is… because of the Son He always was, because of the Father He always had… and if we do not forgive Him, we do not forgive the Father who sent Him or the Holy Spirit who raised Him.

For in Jesus alone does the whole fullness of the Godhead dwell in bodily form, giving manifestation to the complete expression of the Divine nature of God …for in Jesus alone dwells the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit and the True Man …and when we are in Jesus, we too are filled with the Godhead, and so are able to reach full spiritual stature – for all of which came before Jesus was merely a shadow of the coming good things, but they were not the majesty of the disrobing of Jesus to see the Man who is pre-existent in God before the creation of the world – and know in His Image we were made and in His stature is the Holy Spirit raising us. For such is the Holy Spirit’s work in us, that when we come into the Kingdom of Christ, we will know Jesus as the Man He truly is…

For it is Jesus in disrobe to see the Man He truly is… for it is not His Kingdom, nor His miracles, nor His titles, nor His crowns, nor His power which give Him His majesty… nor His magnificence to behold …or His gloriousness to embrace…

It is that He is the Man in the Lord who is the perfect Image of God and breathtakingly magnificent He is… but it is a magnificence we never saw or heard or appreciated because we never listened without speaking so as to hear much… nor did we love without judging so as to see much …nor did we forgive as we were forgiven to behold what was held deep in the eyes of the One who knew sacrifice, and so see for ourselves the glory of the Kingdom which was to come …and then the Kingdom as it would be when handed back to the Father… for it opens our hearts to a remembrance and a forgiveness that brings honour to the Father because the Man Jesus is …is because of the Father He had …and because of the Son He always was …so how brilliant was the copy because how magnificent and spectacular was the Original …and until we appreciate and guard the Man Jesus truly is, we will never walk in the deep of what He is revealing to us of the Father …for the revelation has awaited its appointed time… for a massive dose of the fullness of God will emerge when we see the Father in the fullness of His attire as man is redeemed back into His perfect Image …for it must be where deep calls to deep when the emotions, thoughts, feelings and motives of a sinless man flood the one who lives and abides in Jesus in their triumphant release, as the victory that is held only in Him is acknowledged from a place in us we never knew existed until we saw its existence in the Man Jesus… in all of the splendour of its sinless form, which existed long before the Father put His hand to dust to bring forth what was to be the first of many duplicates of the Original…

So open your heart wider and deeper… tear your heart open for Him …break your heart for the injustice done Him and mourn as a father would mourn for an only Son.

For when He became sin so we may be the righteousness of God, He endured what had never been before… the eyes of His Father moving from Him to us, and in that moment alone, we have to see what it cost Him to make us the righteousness of His God… for all eternity was pierced forever with the cry of the Sacrifice as it tore open and gave increase to the universal dimensions of the Father and God of Jesus Christ… just as surely as the cry from the Father and Spirit tore through the heart of the Lamb of the sacrifice, as the bloodied and beaten body of the Man Jesus forgave the sin He became because of the sinners He came to redeem… for He counted not the cost nor the miles, for He was taking His Father into an endless journey …a priceless unveiling of Himself… of God …of Creation, that will startle and amaze… surprise and delight… and yet rip apart every sinew in our body…

For such is the more of God, the more of the Father… such it is that Jesus declares, ‘There is more My God… there is the more, My Father, of sons and daughters just like You… ones who now know You and see You as you really are… ones who have responded to the Man and the Father You are …ones Your heart has been heavy for… and here is the man You first formed when you put Your hand to dirt, now in the fullness of the stature of the Man You always saw Yourself as’ …and the Father will remember when He first put His hand to dirt to form Adam in the Image of the first Man, and so remember His anticipation that if he obeyed, he would be grown and matured into the fullness of the Image of the Man who was the Image of God in the Lord …and that is to be of the supreme stature of the Only Son who gave His life for the life of the world …the Son He loved so very much, the One He was so well pleased with ….the Son of God who submitted Himself to becoming the Son of Man… the Son of all men… even though where was the honour in being the Son of a man of such sin and rebellion…

But such was the Father’s loss… that His cry shattered our deafness… His zeal drove away our blindness …His fragrance drew in our breath, for His touch burned with a longing for us to call Him Father …for we had now seen the flesh of the One who had opened His eternal dwellings to those who had come to know Him through the only Son and Man who came from Heaven …that we may have formed in us a consuming zeal for all of which is our Father’s that will soar past even the zealousness of our Brother for His Father’s House …His Father’s honour – and so be truly the man from whom the Kingdom of the True Man has derived its name …for through that Kingdom will come the release of the dreams that fill the Father’s Empires …the release of His Empire of Dreams through men now restored back into God’s Image, who know deep in their very soul that they were forgiven much more than they can bear to imagine or even know …and that they love much because it was God who loved them first …and that they see much because Jesus came to make clearly seen what had remained unseen through the only way given from Heaven.

‘This is My Beloved Son whom I love …with Him I am well pleased …Listen to Him’

For it was the Son who would live the dream of His Father in the form of flesh, paying full price to bring it to its destination, for such was the extent of its true majestic purpose …so grand that the Father will watch Jesus forever and be in awe of the magnificence of the Man who remained without sin …in awe of His only Begotten Son …in awe of the Son who submitted Himself to not only being called the Son of Man …but to being the Son of all men who are now in the Image of His God and their God… His Father and their Father …that they may also be a father to Him as God is Father to Him… and that is to see why Jesus is the Son He is, and why He did become the Man He was, for we now see the Father He had …and having seen much of what was never given to remembrance, and having forgiven ALL of what was never in need of forgiveness, stand in the power of the Man who forgives, and lay down our death to keep the ground on which our faithful and true Lord will place His feet protected from those who will fight fiercely against His return… for in Him alone are we declared truly man… male and female as first created from the Father’s dream of living the dimensions of the flesh in the form of a man… and in Him alone are we invincible and invulnerable and untemptable… for the power of the Kingdom of Christ rests in the man such as this …the man who forgives… and forgives even though he has the power to annihilate… and so a joy for the Father to behold …a rush of burning delight to His Soul… a comfort to His pained heart… for the Man Jesus truly is, has seared into our souls and our mortality, so our hearts can never release its hold on the Name, which is above all other names ~

The Name that when held deep in the Son’s heart would take Him to where no other man had ventured …to where no other son had been …for it was where no other Father had longed to go, for our Father is Spirit, but now we have seen Him in the flesh and we have seen the Man He is through the Son He sent …and we have heard the Father He is through the word He spoke… and so have come to know the perfect Father He always was, through the Heir He always had.

So know the full extent of the privilege of remaining for the First Resurrection.

For as the Son of Man, will Jesus return to take dominion over the whole Earth …and so be stirred in heart and soul for the glory is all His… for who was M/man that we were mindful of him – but we stand because of the Lord’s eternal victory in the flesh and in the S/spirit and declare that we will not be robbed of our destiny to fight for the Truth that He died to bring to us …we will not be robbed of fighting in our Lord’s army nor our King’s battles… for we show pity to no one, but give hope to everyone because as our Redeemer lives… so Man still lives… and so we live with our bodies of flesh now the flesh of the Word made flesh, for even though we did not remain without sin, in Christ alone we dwell within the Man who did… and out of silent obedience born out of love of the Truth, we can now say in the course of time, ‘It is finished’… the work of the Holy Spirit is finished in us, and know within those words is the silent utterance of the Lamb slain …slain in the flesh, so remembrance of a forgiveness seen as no forgiveness at all could pierce through our ingratitude and disbelief to reveal what sin caused our Father to hide of Himself…

And so Lord, You have revealed to us Your Father and our Father, and we lay His and Your injustice upon ourselves, and we die to all else because You died to all else as your life was not your own to live, but given as a sacrifice so that the work of God may be displayed in You… so the Father and all that is held in Him may be known through You …for our flesh came from Him, our blood from Him, our tears from Him and our life from Him so we could live, so as to see the True Man and stand in awe of Him forsaking all else and all others to remember Jesus as the only Man who remained without sin …the only True Man …and so the only Man who could reveal the Father and what He had to hide of Himself because of sin ….the most precious things of His Person, things that now only the Son and the Spirit would see and know and enjoy and love …but by living and abiding in Jesus, we see clearly now who is Man that even God would be mindful of Him, and see what has remained unseen, hidden and veiled within the Godhead, but now given to its unveiled revelation because the Son became a Man and the Man a King… a King who when He hands the Kingdom back to His Father, He will become the Man who is the Son who now goes to live the life which is now His own to live …for His life given as a sacrifice was the life given that the Father may come into the Kingdom He so joyously prepared as He created what was to be His perfect Image …for the Father’s Kingdom will be called ‘The Kingdom of Peace’… a Kingdom overflowing with sons and daughters in their fully matured stature, whose tears for their Father’s lost honour now in flow down now upon His Face, as they now see and hear Him not as ones being covered by the blood and skin of the Lamb slain because of the shame brought to His Image – but as ones who know and live in the triumphant victory of God’s atoning sacrifice – the sacrificial Lamb of God who was slain in the flesh by men of the flesh because Word gave revelation that God had a Son, and the Father had given Him the Name Jesus, for His Name was to be lifted higher than any other name, and no other name can be lifted higher than the Name of the Father… for the Father is greater than all…

And so if it is justice we desire for Jesus, then it is honour we want restored back to the Father …and if it is honour we want restored back to the Father then we remain alive to reign with Jesus.

For the Kingdom of Christ is the Kingdom of the True Man… and the true man is only found in Christ alone, so all who live and abide in Him shall be declared truly man, male and female… the final product… the final achievement of the work of God that began when He first put His hand to dust and formed Adam…

And when Jesus returns as the Son of Man, He will be more of a Man then the Lord He is – the Royalty He is – that is why He commands such love from His kings and lords …for then they will know Him as the Man in the Lord and it will be so glorious that only those who martyr themselves and forsake all others will know Him in this way …and when He returns, they will behold the Man they refused to behold …they will say as Pontius Pilate said, ‘Behold the Man’!

And what a Man …what a God …for Jesus is the Man who is God ~

The Man in whom God is fully manifest and the God in whom Man is fully manifest…

And so as the Son of Man He will enter the Kingdom, which the Father prepared so long ago to take man far, wide, deep and high into the boundless and formless Empires of He who is the Living God.

For God did not just feel love for us, but He showed His love for us… showed a Father’s love for His children …and God’s love for His creation …and the all of which is held in that love is yet to be seen as the Eternal Trinity brings Itself into full disrobe as the true man who lives and abides in the Lord Jesus Christ is finally and with celebration of heart, mind, soul, spirit and flesh brought into the perfect and complete order of all things …for such is its celebration and victory that the cost of it meant a cross… for only from the cross was man declared truly man male and female… and so only from the cross will we too only be able to say the work of the Holy Spirit is finished in us…

For through the gates of the Kingdom of the True Man …the Son of Man will enter carrying forth the lost dream of His Father as He opens now all of the gates to His Empire of Dreams as the Kingdom of Christ… the Kingdom of the true Man, enters it time of reign …for man, through Jesus, has become the truth of the Man that the Father Himself would be in the flesh, and so able to become a father as God is Father …God being the Father of the Son of God …True man being the father of the Son of Man… for then the Father will see man mourning as only a father would mourn over an only son, and know that could only come from a remembering of Jesus as the Man He truly is from an abidance in Him, which was to the forsaking of all others and all else …knowing Him not only in the formality of a Rabbi… but the informality of the Man …the Man without sin… who was crucified so all men of the flesh could be the righteousness of God who is Spirit, and so be fit to be a son who is now a man who can become a father to a Son who is without sin …for in truth, He is man’s only Son, as He is God’s only begotten Son… because all other sons are sons of the son of Adam who are not man…

And so through the only Son of God… the only Son of Man, do all other sons and daughters of the F/father have their heritage – their heirship within the Kingdom that is handed back to the Father by Jesus Christ.

For Christ must reign until He humbles all His enemies under His feet, destroying all dominion, authority and power, to then hand over the Kingdom to God the Father… for when the Son conquers all things, He will present Himself to God, so that God, who gave His Son authority over all things, will be utterly supreme over everything everywhere, so that God may be all in all…

So let the Earth be brought into deep and holy silence, for God is in His Holy Temple, and He has with serious motive and gracious generosity of Spirit and with full anticipation of heart, given men once more… the freedom to take up the right to prove they are a man …to know they are man and to live the elation of the knowing of such outcome. For it is to live being a father to the Son who brought all men back into the perfect Image of God …and to remain in that revelation is to remain standing as a father along side God the Father to watch our only Son as He goes to live the life that is now His own to live …for He did all of which He was sent to do …and because of Him, God will be proved right when He speaks, blameless in His judgment and justified when He judges ~

For the standard remained unchanged as the True Man remained without sin… and so as it is Christ in us, God’s hope of glory …so remembering Jesus as the Man He truly was …is the Father’s emotion overwhelmed… for it is that out of our pure love of God we have seen the Son of God preparing Himself for the cross …preparing Himself to return back to the Father, and beneath, we have seen the Man who does exactly as He is commanded …the sinless Man who does not speak until it is finished, and finally we have seen and heard and acknowledged that the emotions of the Man without sin are the Father’s emotions… His emotions as He formed us, His feelings as He saw us, His thoughts as He walked with us, His motives as He revealed all to us… for in us He already saw Jesus, the One in whose Image we were made, and so held in Himself an anticipation that we would grow and mature to be just like Him …and such was that anticipated joy, that just as only the love of the Father compels men to be drawn to Jesus Christ, so it is only the revelation of the Father through Jesus Christ that compels all men to long to call Him Father… because love planted that Tree of Life …sacrifice grew and matured it, and only in the fullness of time did it say, ‘Father forgive’… and He did… because the blood had been shed …it had been blood for blood, and so now it was finished in its fulfilment because it was not ‘My will Father, but Your will be done’.

And so now it has to be …not I, but Christ in me …for that is what will allow the work of the Holy Spirit to be finished in us – and to be finished is for us to learn that obedience that resides in silent listening will lead us to where we will have no fear of the second death but only fear of God…

For as the man who only reveals his father is fit to be his son …so the man who only fears God is fit to be His heir. And so when is a man the man he has been declared to be… the father he has been called to be… the son he should have been …even the servant the Father is waiting for him to be… only when because of fear and suffering which he endures, he has learned obedience, and in the silence of that perfect obedience completes all of which he is commanded to do until it is finished… for only then is he the son, the man, the father, even the servant …who is fit to be his Father’s son …fit to be his Son’s father …fit to be his Father’s heir …even fit to be a servant to all…

For Jesus, though He was a good Son because of fear and suffering which He endured …He learned obedience and grew to be perfect, and only through His perfect obedience and sufferings are we fit to call God Father – are we fit to call Jesus Son – are we fit to be the man who Jesus has now declared us to be… the son we were spared to be – even the servant the Father is waiting for us to be…

So let he who has an ear to hear… hear that God has a Son and His Name is Jesus, and He has proven God true in all He has spoken, in all He has created, proven Him blameless in all of His judgements and fully justified when He judges ~

For the standard He set remained unchanged, for the Son He sent and the Man He became remained without sin or blemish… obeying exactly all of which was commanded of Him to bring to fruition the Fruit of Forgiveness of Sins…

For the Tree of Life did bear its fruit and in the fullness of time… said, ‘Father forgive’ ~

So he who has an ear let him hear that…

Our Father who is in Heaven… Hallowed be Your Name…

Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven…

Give us today our daily bread and forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us… and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one…

For Today is the Day Jesus arrives and we will be with Him in Paradise…

AMEN
