  1. Becoming Who We Are

“My people need to become who they really are.”

By Ron McGatlin

We are now the fully redeemed living sons and daughters of the living God, carriers of the DNA of Christ Jesus and Father God and His kingdom, made in His image and likeness and filled with His eternal Spirit now in this life and in that which is to come.

We are the seeds of God and His kingdom planted on earth to take dominion and rule and reign with Christ now in this life. We are arising in the SPIRIT of the LIVING GOD into heavenly places beyond all human understanding to receive the secrets of heaven on earth reserved only for those who are in LOVE with God – the true and living Bride of Christ – the New Jerusalem, the glorious city in which God dwells with and within His saints of old and those now on earth and those yet to come.

The potential that is designed and built into a child of the living God is beyond natural human understanding. Our destiny along with all others in Christ awaits our believing and receiving who we are designed to be.

The truth is that who we are and what we can do or accomplish is LIMITED ONLY BY WHAT GOD HAS DESIGNED AND PLANNED FOR US.

The lie is that we are mere men who can do very little or nothing to bring forth the kingdom of heaven / kingdom of God on earth.

Our life and the value of that which is accomplished in this world through us is the direct result of what we believe and how intensely we believe what we believe. What we believe and how much or how strongly we believe releases or binds what we will be and do in our lifetime on earth.

Whether we believe the truth or the lie is determined by what we hear and see. Words are seeds that will grow in the soil of our hearts and become who we are and what we do. Words are living seeds that may come through our natural or our spiritual ears and eyes as pictures, visions, feelings, and impressions of any form that create thoughts, imaginations, and experiences that register by our emotions to become stored in our hearts.

Truth comes through Christ Jesus our Lord and King-Redeemer, the last Adam, and is derived from the “tree of life.”

Lies come from the devil through the first Adam who fell into disobedience to God by partaking of the forbidden “tree of the knowledge of good and evil.”

In this current world most of the training and knowledge that is taught or programed into the belief systems of human beings is derived from the natural minds of sons of the first Adam who first chose to partake of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and thereby lost the opportunity to eat from the tree of life.

Partaking of the tree of knowledge caused people to elevate man and the works of his hands as their god or gods. This caused the people to have no desire to intimately know and trust in the one true God who made them. Partaking of the tree of knowledge is trusting in man’s intelligence and understanding. No longer is the word of God true to them nor is it desirable or needed in their independent humanistic way of life.

As it happened first with Adam, this brings separation from true life in God. The absence of the life of God is death. And death reigns while man attempts to build his own kingdoms in this world. Anti-Christ spirits of darkness from Satan are drawn to the death in man’s kingdom efforts and invades the minds and hearts of the people with evil of every sort.

The work of Christ Jesus in His crucifixion, resurrection, ascension, and return in the Holy Spirit has redeemed us from the curse of the first Adam and reopened the way for us to partake of the tree of life.

Partaking of the tree of life means intimately relating to God through Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit, so that we hear and see clearly the word and desires of God. It means completely trusting in Him and walking with Him in this life. As we partake of the fruit of the tree of life, we are consumed by His LOVE. In His love our will is melted into His will. Our hearts become one with God and His love, His power, His wisdom. His life flows into us as we abide in Him and He abides in us.

Our old independent self that was of the first Adam that was trained into us through the tree of knowledge of good and evil is put to death. We are crucified with Christ and now the life that we live is the resurrection life of Christ living in our being where we once lived. The “old man” of the first Adam is no longer with us and no longer has any affect upon our lives.

We are fully alive in Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit. We are free! The internal battles are over! The strife of trying to be holy are swallowed up in the ecstasy of the pure holy love flowing as rivers of living water from our innermost beings. The joy of the Lord abides within us and effervescently flows out to others around us.

We have victory in every situation no matter what is happening in the world and nothing comes near us but through the hand of God. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. We are strengthened with all power by His glorious might.

In quiet humility we walk in victory as mature sons of God. Every word, every thought of our hearts is from the heart of God. Empty or idle words are no longer filling the air within and around us. Love, righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit fill our lives and flow out around us changing the world. This is the kingdom of God reality that is spreading like yeast in bread across the whole loaf of the beautiful Body of Christ on earth.

The kingdom of God is coming forth, even while the darkness of the evil one rages screaming wild bloody threats that come from great fear of knowing that his end has come.

Like the grass in a field in springtime, the kingdom of God is growing into place across our world, blossoming into beautiful flowers with the fragrance of heaven. There is perfect harmony in the world between mankind and all of the plants, animals, and every living thing on or in the earth. Even the weather becomes milder and more pleasant in all seasons with the absence of extreme storms and terrible droughts.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE NOW EXIST WITHIN THE HEARTS OF THE SONS OF GOD. The seed of Christ, the seed of the kingdom of heaven is planted and growing bringing perfect peace in the hearts and lives of His kingdom people. Even during the imprisoning and deadly trials and tribulations, the seed remains untouched and unchanged by it.

Though great darkness of corrective judgments come upon the world, the seed of the righteous kingdom of God shall remain untouched to sprout forth in the heavenly springtime of the fullness of the kingdom of heaven replenishing the earth. Again the voice of the Father shall be heard in His new garden of Planet Earth instructing the people of His kingdom to “be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth.”

We are now the fully redeemed living sons and daughters of the living God, carriers of the DNA of Christ Jesus and Father God and His kingdom, made in His image and likeness and filled with His eternal Spirit now in this life and in that which is to come.

We are the seeds of God and His kingdom planted on earth to take dominion and rule and reign with Christ now in this life. We are arising in the SPIRIT of the LIVING GOD into heavenly places beyond all human understanding to receive the secrets of heaven on earth reserved only for those who are in LOVE with God – the true and living Bride of Christ – the New Jerusalem, the glorious city in which God dwells with and within His saints of old and those now on earth and those yet to come.

The glorious New Jerusalem City of God is being revealed now coming down from heaven in our hearts to grow and mature into seeds sown into this world to fully establish the kingdom of heaven on earth, a glorious expression of the love and majesty of God Almighty.

Christ Jesus is alive in this world now in the hearts and lives of the maturing Sons of God who are the seeds of the new world of the kingdom of heaven on earth.

We are the gates through which the glory of the King and His kingdom are coming to earth. It is not time to look down or to be concerned about the darkness of this world and the lie of the devil that we are only mere men. It is time to lift up our heads and roar in the glory of God. “Lift up your heads, O you gates!
Lift up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in.” (Psalm 24:7)

“Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” (Luke 12:32)

  1. Angel of Awakening in the United States of America

By Lana Vawser

One Wednesday morning, I had a vision where I saw a huge angel: He stood so tall and so wide, and I saw him leave the throne room of Heaven on the Lord’s command and head toward the earth. I saw this angel come toward the nation of the United States of America. As I watched, I saw it land with one of its feet on the west coast and the other foot on the east coast.

When it landed, between the span of his legs and his wings, the entire nation of the United States was covered. Instantly, I felt the atmosphere get thick and heavy in the most glorious way; the presence of God was so tangible.

And again, instantly, the atmosphere around me was full of a “commissioning” from the Lord for this angel to act upon that which the Lord had sent him to do. I then heard these words that boomed with such authority it would have crumbled mountains: “Angel of Awakening, act and awaken.”

Act: anything done, being done, or to be done; deed; performance: a heroic act; a formal decision (www.dictionary.com).

Awaken: to waken (www.dictionary.com).

Suddenly the angel began to flap his wings, and I could see that it was flapping its wings in unison with the heartbeat of God. As he did, I heard the Lord speak, “Winds of awakening. Winds of awakening. Winds of awakening.” Everywhere I looked there were whirlwinds being created all across the nation. These winds of awakening were bringing a great shaking all across the nation. These winds were shaking things up, and bringing a shifting and sifting.

As I looked closely at these whirlwinds, I saw them coming from the four corners of the nation, and they were all heading in one direction. It was as if these whirlwinds were alive and knew exactly where they were headed and what they were to do. They were on assignment.

These whirlwinds of awakening were headed toward the churches, toward the people of God. One thing that stood out to me was that these whirlwinds were coming from different directions and they were flowing in unison and in one accord.

I was then filled with the sense, as this angel of awakening landed in the United States, that the awakening which the Lord is ushering in will be a greater move of His Spirit to bring unity within His Bride and in the nation.

It’s Time for the Dividing Walls to Come Down

As these whirlwinds of the Spirit of God began to move through churches and the nation, I heard the Lord speak again: “It’s time for dividing walls to come down. It’s time for the dividing walls to come down.”

I saw these whirlwinds moving from heart to heart of God’s people, church to church, movement to movement, home church to home church, prayer group to prayer group, and these whirlwinds would land at the “doors” of these hearts and places. They did not enter in, they just stood there swirling, when suddenly in the midst of the whirlwinds, I saw Jesus, beautiful Jesus. He was standing in the midst of the whirlwinds, and His arms were outstretched and eyes full of invitation. I then realized that there was an invitation being released from the heart of Jesus to “welcome and align” with the winds of His awakening, whatever shaking and shifting they may bring.

The beautiful thing about these whirlwinds of awakening was they were coming from His heart, they were of Him and full of such love, and they were coming to bring His people and the nation further into encounters with His love. I watched all across the nation as God’s people embraced these whirlwinds of awakening because they saw Him in them and knew they were being sent from His heart.

As the people of God said, “Yes,” to these whirlwinds, I saw a tidal wave begin to build. It was building and building and building, and it was gaining pressure on the east coast of the United States. As I was watching it gain more and more pressure, the atmosphere around me was then filled with this sense that it was “waiting” for something.

“I Have Seen Him! I Have Seen Him!”

As the people of God were embracing the awakening winds of His Spirit, they were being awakened to new levels of intimacy with Jesus. At this point, suddenly, I was taken back into a dream I had where I saw the Bride of Christ standing on the edge of a cliff; with her back to the cliff and with arms outstretched, she fell backward off the cliff into the loving hands of a gloriously good Father. In the dream I was surrounded with this beautiful, deep invitation from the heart of God to His people to lay down agendas, lay down offenses, lay down control, lay down questions, lay down fear, and just fall into the arms of a good Father, even when you cannot “see” what’s before you.

There is a new level of invitation in the heart of God to free-fall in trust into deeper levels of glorious intimacy with Him. As they fell back into the loving arms of a good Father, a new level of rest, they were going deeper in surrender to Jesus; I saw them then rising up, standing up as burning Bride! A burning Bride! a burning Bride! The Bride was on fire! Burning, burning, burning, burning with the fire of God’s love. Burning like she had never burned before. Her eyes were full of fire, and her eyes spoke the words, “I have seen Him, I have seen Him, I have seen Him!”

Everywhere she went, the sparks of the impartation of His love were being spread – onto streets, into coffee shops, into malls, into schools, into governments, into cities – releasing impartation and the manifestation of encounters with the heart of God and the fire of His love, which was bringing cleansing, purging, purifying, restoration, recompense, healing, and freedom everywhere (people and cities) the fire was released.

As the people of God were having deep encounters with the heart of God and the fire of His love like they had never had before, I saw them reaching out to each other all across the Body of Christ. Hands of repentance being extended, hands of forgiveness being extended, hands of love being extended, awakened hands that God’s heart is for His children to work together, extended.

Walls that divided, walls that divided God’s people for so long, broken through and melted away. Religion, offense, and political offenses were being broken in significant ways. I saw a huge spirit of offense, that has had its hands locked over the nation of America for so long, beginning to lose its grip. It was screaming in agony and pain as it was losing its hold to love.

Awaken America, Beautiful One!

Where the very fingerprints and hold this huge spirit of offense had, I saw angelic hosts being released to stand in that very place, and they were singing, “Peace to the borders. He brings PEACE to the borders” (see Psalm 147:14). They stood on the borders of the nation and sung, “Awaken America, beautiful one! Awaken America, beautiful one.”

The words then surrounded me from His heart: “The winds of awakening releasing deeper radical encounters with the fire of My love being released in My Bride in the United States of America is birthing and ushering in the greatest revival of unity that has ever been seen before, but My winds of awakening must be embraced. My winds of awakening must be embraced.
