Cords of many colours - part two

Updated on March 9, 2010

The dream was vivid and more expansive than I suggested in the first hub, I do not know how long it lasted, nor can I remember all of it, just a tiny piece, which was playing when I heard 'remember this' and consequently could and did when I awoke.

For a couple of days I pondered what the mean was if anything, then I wrote hub one when I began to see things, but it was too fast and there was more to come, so I thought to write this hub and add what is missing, if I can.

I wrote that the dream showed droplets of water; all different colours, and they blended with other droplets to form streams of the same shades and hue, fortunately all the colours I saw were pastel shades, which I recognised as being more benign than strong primary colours in some aspect.

As these streams ran alongside under and around other streams, they had colour crossover where they met, so a lilac cord would briefly show orange as a yellow cord passed over or aside it overlapping.

I saw church bodies of all the different denominations where they had touched and conjoined briefly over the generations, before separating again to form a stronger colour as their doctrines formed and solidified, each diverting to different streams and constantly absorbing other colours as the subtle change of colour occurred.

But the colours became the focus, and with each subsequent merging they became stronger, darker, more obscured, and that was what I was seeing, a myriad of different colours merging slowly into one.

Each colour was distinct.

As I watched I knew that we needed to divest ourselves of colour, those colours represented our persons, those entities that had been created for us by the world, expressions of our individual selves, strident reminders of our selves and what we stood for, as bodies of believers and as single souls.

We needed to become transparent, for Christ is transparent, you can see everything about Him and there are no shadows or dark corners, like a statue lit from all sides He stands visible for all to see who will look towards Him.

We need to become the same.

Ephesians 4 11-16

It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God's people for works of that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.

Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming.

Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ. 

From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.

Ephesians 4 has long been one of my treasured chapters, when it talks of us coming to the fullness of Christ, when I realised that this was our task, to come ourselves to Christ's fullness, and to empower and lead others to the same destination.

We are not members of the church we are part of the body of Christ, and we will eventually merge with Him when we are transparent and come to the fullness.

Our lives are like a space mission in reverse....where they are shot into space and return to earth....we are shot into the world and return to our spiritual world.

When we return home, all will be stripped away, all that we have accumulated will be burnt off like the dross it is, like everyting that was on the outside of the space craft.

Our 'heat shield' is Christ, applied by God and more effective than any heat shield applied by man

Scripture tells us that, but I never understood it fully until I saw this image, this pictogram, this command, we will lose our shape, personality and we blend with Christ, as His will becomes our will we will be the same.

Losing our personality is always something that worries folk.

Our pet atheists are determined to express themselves as the selfish folk they wish to be, and will attack us virulently for pointing out the truth of Christ, so be it.

To a lesser degree believers have asked me whether they will lose their personality when they reach eternity, and prior to this....wishing also to retain my own, I have answered them that I believed we would have a unique personality, and we will....

But it will be the same as the personality of Christ.

Because we will have finally reached the fullness of Him.

So all our church bodies and all of us believers need to strip the colours away, we need to seek to be transparent, and the way to do that is to stop trying to hold onto our 'identity's' and to seek to take on the characteristics of Christ.

Nobody is right, or at lease nobody will ever be right whilst they are still showing their colours, whilst there is still obscureness in them.... when they are still hiding the things that are not Christlike in their lives....hiding and protecting their sin and separation.

All these denominations will stand or fall not on what they believed or preached, but on how much they are capable in these end days to strip away their colours and drop the camouflage in order to become transparent and therefore merge with Christ.

There is ONLY one body of Christ, so either all those 33,001 denominations are wrong, or they will all need to merge into Christ and that means they lose their colours, to achieve the transparency of Christ.

I am NOT talking here of there being an ecumenical conjunction of all churches.

There will be a world church established, encompassing all the religions of the world, but that will be formed by the Antichrist acting on Satan's orders, and will be an end times fulfillment.

This will be the one true church stripping away all the layers that man has lacquered over His word these last 2000 years, and delivering up the gospel as Christ first delivered it.

And each individual believer along with each individual denomination will need to do this if they are to be part of the final body of Christ, if they are to be at the wedding feast, to become the bride.

So forget your titles and denominations, your rule books and ceremony, drop the hierarchical structure which decides church matters, turn your leaderships and elders back into the servants of the body they should be, and move your attention to bringing your people to the fullness of Christ, or you will not be like Him, and you will be excluded.

When Christ bursts into our reality He will be such a brilliance that our 'colours' will be burnt off from us, like dry leaves on a dead tree in a firestorm.

Better to seek His face and His fullness now.

You will stand naked and transparent, with all your sins, for all to see, whether you want to or not, and whether it's an atheists scowl or a bishops cowl, you will have no protection when He comes in His glory.... and all sin burns away.

Comments are below the video, enjoy...

      Cry away, it's good for us to cry, I never cried until I came to Christ, then anything would set me off that saw people suffering.

      I finally lost my fear of being wrong, of being outside the fold and being rejected by my brethren, and I feel just wonderful to finally know I can be what God wants me to be, and as I get bolder, I hope to be more transparent and show others that transparency is not a danger, its a release.

      Rest easy Ghost, love to you also.

      I am sitting here crying like a kid right now failure to acknowledge-my remorse of looking away and caring what people thought of me instead of God-It as if I denounced God that day forward--this past year God has brought me back--oh my goodness I know that he forgives me--but I have been keeping God's secret away from people and my own life and my own purpose for so long..

      It is so simple-the love of God-it is just to love-love without fear of being hurt--without the fear of lack of money--without the fear of backlash-without the fear of Satan...God knows if you have love or hatred in your heart--no matter how many times we fail others-and it may look like our motives are not genuine-God knows who is good and who will turn brown..then black...and than darkness.

      Thanks my dear friend, and you are also so right, when this vision/dream finished i knew that things were never to be the same again, that I had a complete peace and that God will consume us 100% when we reach Him, and it will be wonderful.

      This hub has STRONGLY jogged my memory of 20 years ago and had to go back and re-read this work of yours.

      You said "we will lose our shape, personality and we blend with Christ, as His will becomes our will we will be the same." These are the words I read that jogged a memory of long ago--though it has stayed within my soul forever.

      Being enveloped and lifted into this POWERFUL vibration (Cord of many colors) and I was there with God--in spirit-no physical form-no body but my spirit was there-all of who I know me to be-my feelings-my love was there-but no personality of an ego/mind--if that makes sense to you. I knew that my vibration (chord of color) was tiny-puny-minute and I was separate of God and his beautiful vibration-yet I was part of God also--this wonderful-loving-nothing on here could ever compare to this unblievable vibration that I KNEW was God-was pulsating with me-through me-separate-yet with God all at once.

      I knew it was GOD but I let others down here shut me down, never never again will I. I was too far from knowing God the way I should have--for if I was where I was supposed to be-I would have never let human beings shut me down from the best experience that I have ever-nor will ever feel on this earth-until I go home again-I can't wait-you will love it-you will understand everything-and you will see the very reward of why it is so important to love God and stay on the right team. It is so beautiful!! I wish God could show everyone this but I know that everyone who loves God will become ONE with Christ one day and see and feel it in spirit...(I have no doubt that I was one with Christ that evening) ohhhh that makes me soooooooo happy to know that the lovers and believers of God will be one with God--God so exists!

      I feel that I must type this..sorry so long...but I am just compelled to type this at this moment.

      Sorry I am typing like a mad woman but you said those words and I am consumed at this moment about that day that God visited me-it is seared in my soul-my heart-nothing to do with my pea brain. You just explained is that simple!

      Love to you!

      I got it too Agua, Awesome word picture you were given. I want to be transparent even as Christ is. He has been at work stripping the colors away for some years now. I see so many that have God in a Box wrapped in a pretty bow. They do not see Jesus in anyone but their one color. Some day we will be one as God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are one.

      I like the word picture Dave gives above too. We are the body .. Amen! Thank you for an awesome and creative read. Blessings!

      Aguasilver my brother you are totally correct in saying we are not merely members of the church. In fact we are the church as the church is one living breathing entity, or one body. We are like a fruit tree. One main limb or trunk which is Jesus, and from him, stems thousands of branches, with thousands of off shoots,buds and flowers that will produce fruit when nourished and watered and pruned.


      Brother Dave.

      Thanks coffeesnob,

      Yep, it made sense to me, and the only thing separating us all is our diversity, we all want OUR Christ and we all demand that OUR Christ is the ONLY one, well that's right, our Christ is the ONLY one, so we had all better change into Him, 'cos He surely is not going to change into us.

      I hear you. And as I read this my heart is lifted up and is proclaiming a resounding YES! I don't want to take this personality with me into eternity. And I long for the day that I will be completely transformed into the image of Jesus

      This morning I met with a few others to pray for our local churches, calling out for the deliverance of the "Chruch" to be set free from religion and to be propelled by our Mighty God to take the Gospel into our community - and it will be as spoken in Ephesians - One body that moves forward to do this -not a dismembered replica. Indeed one-transparent. It all makes sense.
