The Rebellion Comes First

Let no one deceive you in any way; for (the Day of the Lord – I AM) will not come unless the rebellion comes first and the lawless one is revealed, the one destined for destruction.   2 Thessalonians 2


Question what you think you know.

Your most cherished doctrines,

Are the handpicked ones,

Which you choose,

For the comfort and security

they pretend to bring you.

Be wary of that which closes your mind,

And anaesthetises your heart,

In order that pain be diverted,

Nailed to another man’s sin,

Another woman’s woes.

It is in the castle of philosophic knowing,

That your false self resides,

Skulking in great halls of certainty,

Hiding among battlements of defensiveness,

Staring out through arrow-crack, fear hollowed eyes.

It is in the rebellion,

The casting down of the chains of religious self-obsession, the tyrannical logician,

That your deceiver self is exposed,

To the white Light,

Of the one true I AM

‘And the fact that the dead are raised Moses himself showed, in the story about the bush, where he speaks of the I AM as the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Now he is God not of the dead, but of the living; for to him all of them are alive.’ Luke 20

Dying to self, delusion’s power retreating,

The kingdom of heaven opens within,

And a living one’s eyes,

Opening in the Light,

Bleary in the Brightness,

Slowly behold the Christ…………

For I know that my Redeemer lives, and that at the last he will stand upon the earth; and after my skin has been thus destroyed, then in my flesh I shall see God, whom I shall see on my side, and my eyes shall behold, and not another.   Job 19

~ breathe ~

Deep within you,

The heart of the Lover beats,

To the rhythm of the Malkutah d’Alaha.

‘The kingdom of heaven is within you’,

Says Jeshua, The Free I AM.

Your freedom is here,

Where the Lord moves,

In and out,

Of your breathing, temple heart,

Like breath,

Like wind,

Like Spirit.

Enter the rhythm now,

And dance…………..

We are compelled always to give thanks to God for you, brothers and sisters beloved by the Lord, because God chose you as the first fruits for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and through belief in the truth 2 Thessalonians 2


By God’s Grace,

The listener hears,

The voice of Salvation,

Through the many whispers,

Screams and shouts,

Of suffering and doubt,

Inherited from fearful parents and guardians of certainty,

‘The kingdom is within you’, repeats the Voice, through the ages, through eternity

‘…the kingdom is within…………………..’
