You are meant to be connected.

You are meant to be connected:  Benches and Ecclesias

by Bill Brady

An ecclesia is a group of believers

  • gathered together
  • to function together
  • to do a specific work

Ecclesias come in many sizes.  Some are listed below from largest to smallest:

  • The Universal Ecclesia.
  • Apostolic Resource Centers (ARCs).  Worldwide there are many ARCs.  Ecclesia Framework is one of them.
  • Benches of 12.
  • Benches of 7.
  • Benches of 3.

Each ecclesia is a family.

  • A family is made up of members of the family.
  • Members of a family are in relationship with one another.

Each person who is part of an ecclesia is a member of that ecclesia.

  • Members of an ecclesia have relationships with one another.
  • Members of an ecclesia experience relationships as a connection.

Those connections are: 

  • to one another – to the members of the family
  • to the ecclesia – to the family as a whole

Each member of an ecclesia experiences: 

  • being gathered into the ecclesia
  • being connected to one another
  • being connected to the ecclesia

Each connection is a divine connection.

  • willed by Father
  • mandated by Jesus
  • experienced as a flowing together in Holy Spirit

These things are the common experience of all members of ecclesias.

  • These experiences are a little difficult to put into words.
  • They are experienced as a knowing by members of ecclesias.

Your spirit knows the reality of these experiences.

  • You know when you have been connected to another believer.
  • You know when you have been connected to a bench. 
  • You know when you have been connected to an ARC.
  • You know when a relationship is a connection.

You experience a connection as a flow of Holy Spirit

  • between you and another member of the ecclesia 
  • between you and the ecclesia

I believe that you know when there is a connection

  • between you and another member of the Universal Ecclesia.
  • between you and other members of an ARC.
  • between you and other members of a bench.

I see various types and levels of connection to an ARC:

  • As a member of one of the ARC’s benches of 3 or 12.
  • As an individual connected to one of the ARC’s bench of 3 as an advisor.
  • As a bench member of another ARC or ecclesia connected to the bench of 12.
  • This is the case when the ARC is functioning in unity with another ARC or ecclesia.
  • EF has this kind of connection with Company of Heaven Dwellers.
  • As a member of an ARC connected to receive from that ARC, but not functioning as a member of any bench.
  • These ARC members are connected by relationship, but not by responsibility.

As a member of a Tree of Life Dialog or Scroll Group you are experiencing being a member of an ecclesia.

  • Each Tree of Life Group is an ecclesia.
  • Each Tree of Life Group is a family.
  • Each Tree of Life Group has a bench of 3 made up of facilitators and co-facilitators.
  • Each Tree of Life Group functions as a bench of 12.

Benches of 12:

  • experience being a family
  • experience connection
  • function governmentally
  • experience growing up together into Manifest Sonship
  • build together according to their blueprint

As long as there are 12 or more members functioning as a bench then the ecclesia will function as a bench of 12.

Here are some of the functions of a bench of 12: 

  • We ascend into heavenly places together.
  • We explore and discover heavenly places together.
  • We do governmental actions for the ecclesia as we explore and discover.
  • We pioneer. Our mere presence in these heavenly places as pioneers opens them up for others to follow us.
  • Our most basic and foundational function as a bench is that we are a family.

Here are some elements of Exploration and Discovery:

  • We bring our light with us as we explore new areas in heavenly places.
  • Wherever we go our light reveals mysteries that were hidden.
  • We discover the reality of these places and the nature of how we are to function there.
  • This is revealed to us as we explore.
  • I believe that Exploration and Discovery is a mandate of every bench.
  • This is because we seek a revelation of the will of God for our bench.  In doing so we are seeking further revelation of the nature of the bench blueprint.

Here are some of the elements of doing governmental actions:

  • They are initiated by a corporate mandate.
  • By engaging the mandate the nature of the governmental action is revealed.
  • What is to be done is revealed.
  • How it is to be done is revealed.
  • Usually one member of the bench is mandated to lead the bench in the governmental action.
  • Each bench has a sphere of authority.
  • That sphere of authority can be for that ecclesia alone or as large as extending to the Universal Ecclesia.

It is not good that a man should be alone.  We are designed and destined to be connected to ecclesias and benches.

 

What is the New Jerusalem?

By Ella Harrison

We are the DESCENDING NEW JERUSALEM . A city with gates . I see there is also a corporate new Jerusalem where we invite the tribes to congregate .

REV 21/22

WAS of God is the place where God dwells outside creation. Then we see that God is preparing a dwelling place in creation, in the New Jerusalem.

NJ IS THE FINISHED NOW – on new earth.

I perceive the NJ as the finished NOW of God, where He manifests as I AM that I AM. Anytime God speaks of Himself as I AM is because He’s bringing forth the Word that prepares the NOW.

So we have to be present in the WAS of God (Ya Sod) with Him, to be able to speak the correct END before the BEGINNING. And build from infinity a new day and rule with Jesus to release the FINISHED NOW corporately ( the descending new Jerusalem).

When this is done the NOW comes together on it’s own because the Word performs the job according to the circular pattern from beginning to end.

Why move on from the Mobile Court?

By Ella Harrison

Self awareness is a form of self gov that acts as middleman between God and our core. It’s the strongman of all strongmen and that causes the shadow of death in us, if this makes any sense.

This strongman is the one that keeps us from abiding under God’s canopy.

At one point we have to give it up and don’t look to self anymore. It’s very tough to give up the record of self because we think that’s our identity, but when we do the only record of self becomes the Book of Life of the Lamb.

That’s when the enemy has no more record of us to work with.

That’s taking on the record of God’s DNA that has no beginning and no end.

The correct judgment of our house happens when we judge self according to the book of life. Now the book of life does not contain any record of evil.

In mobile court we sit on the throne of Adam where we are the little god of our own kingdom and are those who judge self (before we let God judge us) according to our own book that uses the criteria of good or evil.

But if God does not use that book to judge us, neither should we.

My encouragement to those who have been using the mobile court for a long time, is that we are able to align our government with God’s one as far as concerning criteria of judgment and close the court of Adam for good.

In the court of Adam the enemy works in government on assignment under our authority and still has 9 stones on his breast plate…

It is about removing any platform to consider our sin as before the creation of the world we are glorified , sanctified so resting in age of new beginnings on our full identity allows us to draw on abundance of identity.

Moving Towards One United Body

by Bill Brady

WHAT IS  JESUS DOING?  WHAT IS THE ECCLESIA TO DO?

  • JESUS IS BRINGING ALL THINGS IN HEAVEN AND ON EARTH BACK INTO ONENESS WITH HIM ON THE BENCH OF ONE IN ETERNITY. 
  • THE ECCLESIA IS CO-WORKING WITH HIM IN THIS WORK.  

THE BENCH OF ONE IN ETERNITY IS A FULFILLMENT OF EPHESIANS 1:19 -20,            “ in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him.”

THE BENCH OF ONE IN ETERNITY IS A FULFILLMENT OF COLOSSIANS 1:16 – 20        He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.                                  For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers.                                  All things were created through Him and for Him.                                                                 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.                                                           And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.                                                           For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell,  and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.”

JESUS WILL ONCE AGAIN BE OVER ALL THINGS IN HEAVEN AND ON EARTH.

  • Jesus created all thing in heaven and on earth.
  • Everything is in Him.
  • Jesus is the head of the Ecclesia that Jesus may be head over all things.
  • Jesus died to reconcile all things back to Himself.
  • Jesus is gathering everything back to Himself.
  • All that has been gathered will be one in Him on the bench of One.
  • The Ecclesia is to co-work with Jesus to do this gathering back.

THE ECCLESIA IS TO BUILD ACCORDING TO ITS BLUEPRINT WHICH IS CHRIST.

THE ECCLESIA’S BLUEPRINT HAS THREE MANDATES:

  • To gather all men into Christ and His Ecclesia.
  • This is the work of harvesting the harvest.
  • To facilitate each man’s journey of developing into fully functioning Manifest Sonship.
  • This is the work of building the Ecclesia according to its Blueprint.
  • To gather everything in heaven and on earth back into Oneness with Jesus.
  • This is the work of answering creation’s groan.

WHAT IS OUR WORK?

  • We are co-gathers bringing everything in heaven and on earth back into oneness with Jesus.
  • In doing this we fully populate the bench of one in eternity.
  • This is the manifest son’s work of answering creation’s groan.

CREATION IS GROANING.

  • Groaning because creation is not functioning according to its blueprint.
  • Groaning because creation is outside of Christ because of the Fall.
  • Groaning because creation is not at its originally created frequency.
  • Men groan until they are fully one with Jesus.
  • All of creation groans until it is one with Jesus.

THE BIG PICTURE: WHAT JESUS IS DOING AND WHAT THE ECLESSIA IS TO DO:

WHAT JESUS IS DOING AND WHAT THE ECLESSIA IS TO DO:

  • JESUS IS BRINGING ALL THINGS IN HEAVEN AND ON EARTH BACK INTO ONENESS WITH HIM ON THE BENCH OF ONE IN ETERNITY. 
  • THE ECLESSIA IS CO-WORKING WITH HIM IN THIS WORK.  

THE BENCH OF ONE IN ETERNITY IS A FULFILLMENT OF EPHESIANS 1:19 -20,    “having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure    which He purposed in Himself, that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him.”

THE BENCH OF ONE IN ETERNITY IS A FULFILLMENT OF COLOSSIANS 1:16 – 20He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.  For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.  And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.  And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.   For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell,  and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.”

JESUS WILL ONCE AGAIN BE OVER ALL THINGS IN HEAVEN AND ON EARTH.

  • Jesus created all thing in heaven and on earth.
  • Everything is in Him.
  • Jesus is the head of the Ecclesia that Jesus may be head over all things.
  • The purpose of Jesus’ work on the cross was to reconcile all things back to Himself.
  • Jesus’ purpose is that all things that He reconciled to Himself may be gathered back to Himself.
  • Once everything is gathered back to Jesus then everything is one in Him on the bench of One.
  • It is the Ecclesia’s purpose to co-work with Jesus to do this gathering back.

THE ECLESSIA IS TO BUILD ACCORDING TO ITS BLUEPRINT WHICH IS CHRIST.

THE ECLESSIA’S BLUEPRINT HAS THREE MANDATES:

  1. To gather all men into Christ and His Ecclesia.  This is the work of harvesting the harvest.
  2. To facilitate each man’s journey of developing into fully functioning Manifest Sonship.  This is the work of building the Ecclesia according to its Blueprint.
  3. To gather everything in heaven and on earth back into Oneness with Jesus.  This is the work of answering creation’s groan.

IN GATHERING EVERYTHING IN HEAVEN AND IN EARTH BACK INTO ONENESS WITH JESUS WE FULLY POPULATE THE BENCH OF ONE IN ETERNITY.

THIS IS THE WORK OF ANSWERING CREATION’S GROAN.

  • Creation is groaning because it is not functioning according to its blueprint as it is outside of Christ because of the Fall.
  • Groaning is because something is not at its originally created frequency.
  • This is true of men.
  • It is also true of every other created thing in heaven or in earth.

TO BE AT CREATED FREQUENCY IS ONLY FOUND IN ONENESS WITH CHRIST ON THE BENCH OF ONE IN ETERNITY.

Not Letting Your Body Die

Written by Ella Harrison

I Understood the body is not taken in a once off rapture like manner.

Technically we are already in eternity, but not fully connected with the reality. The perception of time as something that will come to an end or one day we’re coming out of it is a distortion. Time is not the dimension in which we are held captive, but rather caducity/death/decay is. Time is part of eternity.

Is our body designed to die, so that we’re going to be resurrected with a new eternal and ethereal body, or is it the same body that will be made eternal?

This topic is very controversial within the body of Christ, and cause of real struggle in what to expect and therefore what to believe God for in terms of faith and hope in His promise to us.

Although it is something quite important to ponder since our beliefs on this matter can wrongly ascribe less nobleness and importance to our body than what God originally intended.

To me there’s a little detail in scriptures that reveals what to expect and this is the empty tomb of Christ, but let see how this can apply to our life, in the light of the fact that now the keys of death and Hades are in the hands of the Living One, Who had to die in order to retrieve them for us (Rev 1:18).

THE CHOICE TO BELONG

Paul urges us to present our body to God as living sacrifice, as the act of true and supreme spiritual worship (Rm 12:1). In doing so, once our body is accepted by God as sacrifice, He automatically acquires the rights of ownership upon it. So we actually give up our rights to chose what will be of it and of us, in favor of the choice to fully belonging to Him.

I equal this to the ‘freewill offering of the Prince’ mentioned in Ez 46:12, that makes us enter through the East Gate of the temple, that per God concession, is always open for this purpose, unlike for other rituals that can happen only on appointed times.

ACCEPTING GODS FULL GOVERNMENT OVER US

This act of ultimate worship is the expression of full acceptance of God’s government upon us, and the consequent choice to give up any surviving pocket of independent government that we may still exercising upon self, which will cause our entire being to fully abide under God’s canopy and therefore be restored according to design by God’s power, and most precisely by the Power of the Resurrection according to the work of Christ.

Once we receive to host within us , God’s full government, the characteristics of His DNA with no beginning and no end become operative in us, and this won’t allow the body to die nor decay. It happens as byproduct of the correct bond established between spirit, soul and body.

Our body truly is established by God as living sacrifice, jointly with the sacrifice of the Lamb laid in the highest realm of eternity, thanks to the work of Christ.

The government according to the knowledge of the Tree of Good and Evil is just a segment of God’s government and without the complete set that comes with the Tree of Life the body is not fully and properly attached to the soul and spirit, and therefore can be separated, hence death can happen. The same dynamic is also responsible of causing decay, by the restricted flow of provision of Life, that doesn’t allow the body to replenish and rejuvenate at the same rate by which energy is spent.

SHADOW OF DEATH

The ‘shadow of death’ (Ps 23:3-4, Matthew 4:16) is a finite dimension that, like a sword, is wedged between soul and body and keeps them almost fully separated by working against each other (spirit and flesh), because of partial lay lines (silver cord) between the three dimensions of our being. The traveling of only the spirit and soul within the realms of heaven ends when the shadow of death is removed from us, because the body also is freed to move with them, so we are fully present and can travel within dimensions.

The silver cord represents only partial connection, while the work of Jesus re-establishes the full connection within the dimensions of our being, that takes away the option of having to go through the disconnection of death (shed the body) in order to be fully connected with all the dimensions of creation and therefore be reunited with our heavenly family.

The full government of God operating in us causes Holy Spirit’s operations, and the supply of the Seven Spirits of God, to literally and fully replace the government of our soul, translating our being into Abundance of Life and the never ending wealth of the heavenly inheritance that we receive as sons within the Son.

WE THEN BECOME BODY AND SPIRIT ( soul is replaced by Holy Spirit ).
Death is defeated when we are fully connected with creation and are working as foundation of life with the Lamb.

THE BIG PICTURE: THE OVERALL BLUEPRINT FOR DEVELOPING INTO MANIFEST SONSHIP

THE OVERALL BLUEPRINT FOR DEVELOPING INTO MANIFEST SONSHIP

THIS INVOLVES AWAKENING TO OUR SONSHIP AND COMING TO FULLY FUNCTION IN THAT SONSHIP.

  • Awakening comes first followed by functioning.
  • Awakening is an enlightenment.
  • Awakening results in the ability to enter into what we can now see.  We enter by faith.
  • Once we have entered into something then we can learn to function in it.

DEVELOPING INTO A FUNCTIONING MANIFEST SON INVOLVES VARIOUS PROGRESSIONS

  • From the Age of Enlightenment to the Age of Zion.
  • From lordship to kingship to sonship.
  • From realm to realm.
  • Of taking on the characteristics of each heavenly city.

SONSHIP INVOLVES A  PROGRESSION THROUGH THE STATGES OF SONSHIP

  • Sonship in Age of New Beginnings
  • Death to self government
  • Sonship in eternity
  • Manifest sonship
  • Being sent as a manifest son

PROGRESSING THROUGH THE AGES INVOLVES A PROGRESSION

  • Becoming more like Jesus in form.  Form is who Jesus is.
  • Becoming more like Jesus in function.  Function is what Jesus does.
  • Moving from co-ruling with Jesus to also co-creating with Jesus.

PROGRESSING THROUGH THE REALMS INVOLVES  A PROGRESSION

  • In experiencing the fullness of the salvation that Jesus bought for us.

PROGRESSING THROUH THE HEAVENLY CITIES INVOLVES

  • Coming into the fullness of the purpose of the City of Jerusalem
  • Entering a heavenly city causes us to become conformed to the purpose of that city

IN ORDER TO BECOME A FULLY FUNCTIONING MANIFEST SON EACH OF US MUST GROW INTO THE FULLNESS OF:

  • Each Age
  • Each stage of growth: Lordship, Kingship and Sonship
  • Each Realm
  • Taking on the characteristics of each Heavenly City

IN PROGRESSING INTO SONSHIP WE BECOME MORE LIKE JESUS

  • In His form- In who He is
  • In His Function In what He is doing
