Gundersen Smith

By: Colleen Livingston

Angels of the Nordic Sea coming wayward me
I heard a force that went here North across the patrons see
I loudly shout yes here about
Neath enchanted glee
The mysteries of Christ revealed
Neath the wayward tree
Across I’ve come, the Living One
Again, my shame to see
Never forgotten His breath down trodden amidst His glory see
I need not fear, the Lord God near, everlasting! He proclaims
The glory now above the clouds
Need not called in blame, His everlasting loving flame
Gundersen is my name
And my life, I’m not ashamed
Glory God His Name
Anointed you the same
Fairy fields, grass that yields, pastures green and vast with Him
I’ll see such mystery through His sea of crystal glass
Goodnight you nations! Farewell Dear Friends!
Until we meet in glory again!
Gundersen Smith of Old Green Pastures

Blessed Brother

Colleen Livingston


Pay homage to the one who died!
"I found my way home!" He cried.
Discovering His deep everlasting
Blessings upon blessings
Extending His grace
"I look upon my Savior!
"Face-to-face
I shall NEVER leave this place!
Not wanting, nor needing,
Never bleeding
Forever I'll walk
Apostles creeding
My Maker, my Taker
My time here will be
Forever I'm grateful
For my time spent with thee
Crystals of glass, dazzling His throne
Great glory forever!
In time He has shown
His power forever!
Forever we've known
Goodbye blessed friends!
Now family and more!
Blessed be our Savior!
Before His Dear Throne.


In Loving Memory of

Mark Daniel Lirot
Blessed friend and brother in the Lord,
Amen

Forever, Everlasting

Colleen Livingston

Awakening the threshing floors
Opening the chamber doors
Midnight at Last!
A Toast to the glass!
My Bride as One with Me

Overlooking with love
Tender making a dove
Flowers of fragrance
You’ll be

A TOAST TO HIS MAJESTY!
Overlooking an endless sea
Crystal glass of emeralds
And glee
Dancing in harmony

Hallelujah we praise!
Oh Holy Ancient of Days!
Gently pressing His hips
Close to me
Dancing to His melody

Hallelujah! We say!
HOLY ANCIENT OF DAYS!
Pressing His lips close
To me
Caressing His cheek tenderly
I love You My Dear
No longer in fear
Always with You
Forever we’ll be
Everlasting
Eternally
As One
We shall be.

Dear Joseph

Colleen Livingston

What lies in the winnowing fields

Flowing vastly of green grass

A flock of herds of many

Joseph gathers, him to blame

Brothers grapple at his jacket

Jealous are they of his coat

One day they will be sorry

Stricken greatly by their guilt

Joseph, precious, one of beauty

Yes, you are above the land

Chosen by to steer his hand

Guide the fields! Tend the flock!

Many years oppressed

Then freed by one great shout

Desert by foot, cloud by day

The Lord shall steer the way

Oh holy ones of Israel!

No longer in dismay

A land of milk and honey

A land of His delay

No longer are His children lost

But found in glowing praise

This day of bounty comes yet now

Delivering His Name

Be glorified from here to forth

Remembering this day

Amen, Dear God of Abraham

Your flocks shine through and through

Forever! God of Jacob

Forever! Shines through you

Blessed are the fields

Tending to Your Name

Blessed are the multitudes

Crying out in heartfelt shame

Joseph and his brothers

Forever! You shall be

Always and forever

Written down in history

Famous ones of many

To be forgotten Never! Nought!

Good God Ye over nations!

Is the Savior’s melting pot

It shall be grand when King Josiah

Gathers up the lands

And David and his army

Conquer all who bite the hand

Goodbye Great Father’s

Delivering Our faith!

Good riddance to oppressive ones!

Glory is the Day

We see our Lord, face to face!

Remembering His fame

Dear God of Jacob

To Your Blessed Holy Name

Amen

Nathaniel Great One

Beloved Family

Here! Here! Lies Nathaniel
Barely babe, barely known
Now! Now! Lives Nathaniel
Now! Now! At His throne
Great! Great! King of glory
Nathaniel does now bow
King! King! Great King Glory
“Nathaniel!” The King calls
“Nathaniel! The Knight! King shining so bright!”
Fearing not, this dear soldier
Fearing not, this dear one
Beloved he claims, never hearing his name
Now God has given, Nathaniel, proclaim!
Proclaim to the nations! Proclaim to the shores!
Rising up and deep over, these vast threshing floors
“Nathaniel!” They say! “Nathaniel, God’s hand”
“Barking out Great King’s orders!”
“Barking out for the Crown!”
Lights bright in the East, and so too in the West
Here is King Nathaniel
Here he is at his best.

Loving peace, and in memory of, our beloved son,
Nathaniel, The Living One, Livingston
Amen

As the title asserts, Christianity has lost its way. It has strayed hopelessly far away from its premises, its practices, and the first-century understanding it arose from. One has to look no further than the New Covenant promise and the tenants, by which the Christian puts himself under, and conforms to, in order to see how far they have strayed. Contemporary practices do not even resemble the biblical New Covenant tenants. Christianity, as charitable and loving as it is, has turned into a religious practice designed by men.

The premise that Christianity is a lost and skewed practice of what it once was in its origin, to most would seem like a ridiculous notion. Many would be dismissive without giving thought to the idea. After all, Christianity has been practiced unbroken since the New Covenant has been ratified by the death of Jesus on the cross. Likewise, the writings of the Bible have always been around, and never, for example, lost or buried in the ground and had need to be rediscovered by an archaeologist. But has it?

The fact is that in their bids for power and wealth in this world, elements of Church leadership in the highest of offices have remodeled or rewired the tenants of the New Covenant to suit their quests in such a manner that its basic foundations have been lost.

Secondly, the Bible and writings of our faith, indeed, have never been lost. However, they have most certainly been suppressed by the powers at be. Even imposing torture, and death sentences to those who possess them or worked to get them in the hands of the common people.

Things became so bad in Christendom that on October 31, 1517 the once united universal Christian Church began to unravel. It is this date when Martin Luther nailed his Ninety-five Theses on the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany, challenging the corrupted practices of the Catholic (universal) Church. Luther realized that the practices of the Church leadership had over the years strayed so far away from its 1st century values and premises that it followed the rules of these men in power and not the New Covenant tenants which were instituted by Christ Himself.  

It is now 2020, some 500 years later and the Church continues to fragment because of a seemingly endless and unsatisfied quest to search out the true first-century understanding and practices of the New Covenant. Christianity remains so lost from its origins that it cannot understand its own scriptures and their true meanings, or the true context they were written in. At this point, it can only be by the Holy Spirit and the prophets sent by the Lord and their trail of bread crumbs, that the Church can find within their own writings (the Bible) the way to return to first-century practices and understandings.

However, as modern, intelligent, and resourceful we the Church at large are, we are clearly not there yet. This study, which is prophetically inspired by the Lord, was created to first: Open our eyes to how far away we are from our origins, and then secondly: Guide the way back before it’s too late and we have to suffer horribly in order to hang on to our born again birth right.

"Jesus died for me!" "I am saved by grace through faith!" "I have the Holy Spirit and the mind of Christ!" "I am the bride of Christ!" "I am Spirit-filled!" "I do not live under the law, but I live by faith!"

These are some of the most essential Biblical truths for the Christian believer. However, in these times they have turned into little more than clichés. Their true meanings have been lost. Christians all over will proudly identify with and hail these sayings, so as to define their relationship with Christ. Ask them what they mean, and more often than not, they will stammer and stutter, not knowing exactly what to say. However, they cling to these sayings as if each one of them are an exclusive club they are a proud member of. Some will say, "It's not important to understand because we live by faith, that is all that is important. The rest we can find out when we get to heaven." This holds true even among our Christian leaders who rarely give us answers that leave us with a sense that we truly understand how these sayings apply to our lives, what they actually mean, or how they are true.

This book outlines the truths in the Bible in a way that a modern mind can make sense of and believe. It gives understandings that defy being locked into the categories of past Christian thinking even though they may have elements of them. Inside the covers of this book are fresh understandings of the old that have turned into nothing more than clichés void of context or explanations.

The Christian Story, and its Message gives a realistic and foundational understanding of the entire story of our faith. It begins with that fateful moment in the garden with the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil. It explains, in a sensible way, how the sin of Adam continues to affect us and poison our relationship with our Creator thousands of generations later. It brings us through how and why humans and the earth are under judgment, giving a rational explanation why Jesus had to die for us and exactly what makes us His bride. Lastly, bringing us to the Millennial Reign of Christ and the world to come that we are ultimately living for.

Father of Promise
Colleen Livingston

Father, my Father, you live high above
Glistening, glowing, Your eyes filled with love
Father, good Father, You pierce through my soul
Forever You hold me, You never let go
Father, O’Father, Your grace never ends
Graciously saving my life to the end
Father, Lord Father, reaching out from the skies
Holding me tightly this night never dies
Majesty, Majesty, a knock at the door
Could this be You? At my threshing floors?
Over and over You spin, You ignite
Over, still over, You join me in flight
Hearing the calling, the beauty You hold
Captivates meaning in my heart to behold
Runner, keep running! He’s here at your side
Ever creating a distinguishing glide
Dancing, and turning You meet me so high
Forever I’ll praise You!
FOREVER, YOU’LL SEE!
Gently wavering deep in blue sea
Glasses of crystal, jasper, and gems
Rainbow of promise, You faithfulness lends
Helping the needy, the ones You do know
Taking our refuge, You never let go
Father, Dearest Father, Your love never ends
Goodnight, my Dear Father,
Goodnight Dearest Friend.
A river of life is flowing no end
Jump in He’s glowing as angels descend!
Goodnight brother sister!
Goodnight beloved ones!
See you out yonder! As King, He’s the Son
Beloved we’ll be, together as one!

Jesus came to give man a gift which would give him the wisdom and power to overcome his defect (Amp Heb 8:7) of being unspiritual and too weak to overcome. You could call this the gift of salvation. This being the case it should be the main objective of the Christ follower to make his focus exploiting and learning to operate in the gift of a new and heavenly wisdom Jesus gave at the cost of His life.To not do so would be to deny the power and gift He gave at the expense of His life. It would render His death useless profaning all He accomplished. It makes the New Covenant as impotent as the Old in restoring man to God. As such, let us take a closer look at this most important factor the Christ follower has inhibiting his relationship with God (the defect).
