A Journey Into Intimacy: TOL Group Level One

A Journey Into Intimacy: Tree of Life Group Level One

Updated  11/29/2018

Tree of Life Groups are no longer being offered as live groups.  These recordings still have value.

This is a self-paced growth into Intimacy with Father, Jesus and Holy Spirit.  It is not meant for academic study.  It is meant for encounter with the Living God.  Living Encounter is living from the Tree of Life.  Academic study apart from living encounter is living from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.  Jesus rebuked the Pharisees for studying scripture, but failing to come to Him for living encounter.  This is why we are called Tree of Life Group.      

You may find that you are drawn by desire to start someplace other than week one.  Follow your desire.  All that you do in Tree of Life Group is meant to be from desire of true and living encounter.

Here is a recording about Baptisms and receiving the Holy Spirit:  Baptisms

Below you will find two rounds of TOL Group Level One.  Recordings of the 8 meetings of the first ever Tree of Life Group are listed first.  This later became Level One.  This is followed by the full pre-meeting plan and meeting recording for all 8 weeks of the second round of Tree Of Life Group Level One. 

Intimacy is the major purpose of Level One.  You will establish intimacy through several activations.  The major ones for intimacy are the River / Water Fall / Bridge / Garden activation and the 4 Chambers of the Heart activation.  These will bring you into being able to experience these encounters any time that you want to.  Spend as much time in these encounters as you desire.  I have spent much time on the Dance Floor with Jesus or with the Godhead.  Whenever I found that I needed time alone with Jesus I would start the Blue Danube Waltz in my imagination and then move into encounter with Jesus.

Another purpose of Level One is several key experiences of surrender:  Seat of Rest, Making Myself a Living Sacrifice, and Splitting the Spirit and the Soul.  These are experiences that every believe is meant to come in to.

One United Body (EF) has a God-given assignment to alert you to known stumbling blocks that can hinder your journey if you let them.  We will show you what they are so that you can avoid them.  There is no reason to not learn from the mistakes that others have made.

The final purpose of Level One is to bring you to a daily practice of Framing Your Morning.  During the early weeks you are experiencing some of the elements of Framing Your Morning.  Even now, many months after facilitating our first Level One, I am still beginning my day with elements of Framing Your Morning.

You may find that some few recordings have been lost since then are no longer available.

“Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me” (Rev 3:20).

In the centre of our spirit is the door of first love. Behind it is a river of life waiting to burst through.

 

Open the door and let the source of life flow from heaven into your spirit.

Picture a river flowing by a green pasture

Lie down in the pasture

With Jesus, the Shepherd of your soul, beside you.

Enjoy His presence

Feel His love, His joy, His peace.

He restores your soul
Touching the deep areas of your life

to bring wholeness, healing and blessing.

Stay there for a while…

Step into the river

Feel its energy

Touching every atom, every fibre of your being
Flowing through you.

You can breathe in that water

You can drink that water,

Receive life in abundance.

The river flows on
Through the garden of your heart
Watering that garden with life
And out into the world.

Turn, and follow it back upstream

Through the door, back into heaven.
Breathe in the atmosphere of heaven.

Sense its energy, its life, its purity.

Look at the riverbed.

See the scrolls and the gems that are there for you

To provide for you, to bless you, to be your source.

Stand under the waterfall cascading down from the garden of God

Feel it pulsating down, energizing you

Let deep call to deep

Revealing the deposit of your destiny within you.

Go up the waterfall (you can do that in heaven)

At the top, walk towards the garden of God.

Jesus is waiting on the bridge ahead of you

Look into His eyes

Feel His love

He is inviting you to hand over every burden

Every weight of responsibility you are carrying

You don’t want to be carrying all that when you go in and meet the Father.

Hand it all over.

Walk through the archway into the garden of God

Experience what it is to be in the presence of your Father who loves you

The One who gave you destiny you to rule in the heavens and on the earth.

Just learn to be.
