- WE ARE AGAIN LIVING IN “BIBLE DAYS”
By Ron McGatlin
Much of the western world has adjusted to bondage that gradually overtook them in the name of freedom. A false freedom of indulgence in carnality free from spiritual truth, love and righteousness has stolen the sanity of the confused once sound minds of the people. Many, if not most of the people of the nations are imprisoned in darkness of bondage apart from God. In general they have little or no respect for God or God’s people.
The world was in a similar state when Christ Jesus the Son of God became the Son of man and came to earth born of a virgin as a baby, a human being but without lineage to the Adamic fallen world. God came to earth in the body of a man to set the captives free and reclaim the world. The world was filled with darkness, from the lowliest beggar to the kings there was darkness. Even the Jewish Pharisees and Sadducees, the religious leaders of that season, were in darkness (John 8:44).
The light of God in Christ Jesus came to the world to overcome the darkness and set the people free to again walk in the light of the kingdom of God. Everywhere Jesus and His disciples went they encountered the darkness of demons and diseases. They brought healing and deliverance to all who came to Jesus the Son of God, the Light of the world.
A DAY OF DELIVERANCE TO FREEDOM
The prayers of the saints have been heard and the onslaught of wickedness against God and His people has been seen from heaven and blatantly exposed on earth. The purging of the religions that had replaced Christ Jesus as head are coming down and the false foundation that has been built is crumbling under the hammers of the persecutors. The nations are being shaken into rubble and eventually nothing that is lifted up against God shall stand. (Hebrews 12:26) (Isaiah 2)
IN THIS SEASON THE LIGHT OF THE SON OF GOD HAS ARISEN AND IS AGAIN BRINGING HEALING AND DELIVERANCE TO ALL WHO WILL COME TO THE LIGHT. THE GLORIOUS LIGHT OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS HAS ARISEN FROM WITHIN AND UPON A REMNANT ARMY OF PURE HEARTED HOLY SPIRIT FILLED PEOPLE WHO ARE THE BODY OF THE LIVING CHRIST ON EARTH WHO COUNT NOT THEIR LIVES TO BE THEIR OWN BUT THROUGH LOVE ARE BRINGING FORTH THE POWER OF GOD TO SET THE PEOPLE FREE.
My fellow followers of Christ, this is the time of our arising into the place of our calling. Every one of us are equipped with the Spirit and the words of God to set the captives free.
Pray and obey and the light of God will turn up to a new level of brilliance in and upon you. Christ in you is the light of the world. Every person that comes to your light will hear your words of healing and deliverance. In this most urgent time the supernatural power of God is flowing to set the captives free with a word in the brilliant light of His love. What may not have worked in the past can work now (Isaiah 2:21) (Isaiah 60:1-2).
What you were afraid to do or say will be strengthened now with holy boldness of pure holy love. Lay aside every weight of concern or doubt and step out upon the water by His spirit and either it will part before you are you will walk comfortably upon the waves of troubled times. There is nothing the devil can do to stop you as you simply use the faith that God is putting within you. Simply believe and all things are possible unto you in this season of harvest and change in this world.
OUT OF THE NEST OF COMFORT
Staying in bondage and adjusting to sickness and disease and lack of power and provision has its comfort to the darkened soul. Rotting away in the pleasure of carnality is effortless and always feels good for the moment. Therefore things will get worse for the captives of carnal pleasure while things are getting better in the pure light of God with each of us who turn to God with our whole heart.
Like the eagle removing the fluff from the nest causes the young birds to no longer be comfortable in their once softly padded world so it is for many believers and seekers. Within their minds to this point they have only known very limited movement within the nest. They only know the comfort of the nest and walking about on solid footing. Perhaps deep in their minds are thoughts of soaring freely in the air. However, their minds limit them to clinging to the solid sticks of the nest.
Their minds do not tell them that they can fly and soar into the heavenlies. The parent eagles make them very uncomfortable in the nest and may eventually push them off the edge into the thin air causing them to try their wings. If they fail and are falling the parent eagle will fly under them and catch them. Soon they are soaring freely in the heavenlies and never return to the confines of the limited movement of the nest.
God is calling and now even pressing believers to step out into the supernatural air of the heavens of Spirit life, to soar into the life that He has prepared for us. When the world crumbles around us and the comfortable life nest we have been in is no longer there, God is taking us to a greater life soaring in the Sprit and bringing His deliverance and healing to all who will turn to Him with their whole hearts.
God is also removing His protection and provision from the disobedient nations. And eventually will give the nations to those who love Him. In all of this the people of God are now empowered to heal and deliver and many of the captives are ready to turn away from their indulgent carnal life and mental attitudes of entitlement that has overtaken them. Many will turn toward the great light of God shining from us and around us (Isaiah 60:1-18) (Matthew 4:16).
Forget about trying to save the nations and instead save the people and they will save the nations.
WHY SET THE PEOPLE FREE
THE REASON FOR CHRIST’S COMING IN THE FIRST CENTURY AND NOW ABIDING IN HIS PEOPLE WAS AND IS TO HEAL AND DELIVER THE PEOPLE TO RE-ESTABLISH THE KINGDOM OF GOD ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN. Every person returning to God from their bondage is a mighty soldier in the remnant army that is establishing the glorious kingdom of God, redeeming the planet and all that is upon it, within it and around it to the beautiful kingdom of heaven. It is not just about making our lives better and getting us to heaven when we die. It is about the kingdom of heaven coming to earth – the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.
For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; 21 because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now, Romans 8:19-22.
Yes, there is heaven after we die and yes the people are better when healed and set free. They feel better and their lives are better but that is not the final end of the reason for the now urgent move of God on earth. The final reason is for the groaning earth to be set free from the bondage put upon it by the fallen world of people that were deceived by the devil and the anti-Christ spirits.
The end is near for the devil and the anti-Christ spirits controlling the people of the world. All the darkness that has foiled this world will be cleansed from the earth and from God’s people. Thus returning natural life to its original Garden of Eden quality.
The original and final purpose for mankind is to glorify God by “tending His garden” of planet earth. That is Christ in us ruling and reigning in the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven with and for Him. The whole earth and all that is upon it is to show forth the glory of God to all creation.
The mountain of the Lord will arise above all the mountains of life on earth and all the people shall come to the mountain and be transformed, renewed and restored to the pure holy mature Sons of God (Isaiah 2:2). All the earth shall rejoice in light of His glory in the New Jerusalem heart of His people and nothing that defiles shall enter into the city of God on earth (Revelation 21:25). The great mystery of “Christ in you the hope of glory” fulfilled in His presence. His jewels shall reflect His glory to all creation (Colossians 1:27).
Love never fails, and His kingdom never ends.
- EXPLOSIONS OF JOY – Part One
By Rosaleen Hager
“Weeping may endure for a night but, joy comes in the morning.” PS. 30:5
IT IS MORNING!
It is early morning but, it is definitely morning.
It is time for the true church to live in the supernatural. We were born to live in the supernatural.
At the present time, we are observing the speed of the growth of evil all over the world.
Where is the life of Jesus Christ shining forth?
Where is the kind of “normal” Christian life that is shown in the book of Acts?
Is this not the blueprint for today in the face of growing persecution? How can we accomplish the prophesied billions who will come into the Kingdom shortly?
What can our part be in the outburst of Joy that is coming soon upon the true people of God?
The healing revivals in the 1800’s- 1950’s have much to teach us about God’s purposes for the healing ministry.
Those precious saints had a saying about the purpose of healing from heaven. It was “Healing is the dinner bell that brings people to the table of salvation.”
One of the greatest healing ministries was that of F. F. Bosworth. Large numbers of people were healed in his meetings. Some photos showed large groups with those born again numbering 12,000. Bosworth was known as “Joybringer Bosworth” because of the great levels of joy exhibited in those gatherings. Bosworth understood that people needed to be taught about the promises of God regarding healing and also the great love of the Father so as to insure the permanence of the healing. The meetings then fulfilled the teaching.
THE HOLY SPIRIT HAS INDICATED THAT HE NOW WANTS TO HAVE GREAT NUMBERS OF “JOYBRINGERS” HERE ON EARTH FOR THESE LAST DAYS!
I SAW ON THE WORLD MAP THOUSANDS OF EXPLODING LIGHTS THAT WERE SYMBOLS OF JOY. THESE INDICATED HEALING SCHOOLS IN EVERY CITY.
We are getting ready for a great change in the spiritual life of each true believer. This will be a greater understanding of the battle and of the battlefield.
This will come from the Greatest Commander in the Universe. Our Heavenly Father. He is without equal.
During the 1970’s at one particular healing meeting, an Evangelist reported that many angels were present and were seen by a number of people in attendance.
Many unusual healings happened including a paralyzed woman with a broken back who walked and was totally healed, and a well-known psychiatrist who was “slain in the Spirit” while suspended in mid-air, and was healed of crippling arthritis. He received the Holy Spirit Baptism and could not speak English for three days. There were many other answers to prayers.
During this meeting a large cloud was seen enveloping the ones who were waiting for prayer. After the prayers were finished, and as the Evangelist was observing the group of people, the Holy Spirit revealed many of the people’s thoughts. They were thinking that only a few people in each generation were chosen to do this healing ministry. Then, they thought, “I have a great desire to do these things, but I will never be one of those chosen ones.” At that point, the Holy Spirit said, “In the last days, a great number of my full-grown sons and daughters will be anointed to do these signs and wonders.” In these days of doubt, unbelief and famine of the Word of God, people need to be shown that God is real and that He is LOVE.
Many believe the word of the enemy that God does not love them. The great flow of love coming from these “joybringers” will prove the Father’s love is for all who will receive HIM.
Remember that “Healing is the dinner bell that brings people to the table of salvation”.
“Therefore with joy will you draw water from the wells of salvation” Isa. 12:3
Rosaleen Hager is a precious woman of God that has experienced the supernatural woks of God in a personal way over the past seven decades as a Spirit gifted evangelist, pastor, prophetic intercessor and revivalist. God has again awakened her for this time in history to be a part of this current move of God that culminates all that has gone before and more that is manifesting in the pure holy hearts and lives of the mature sons and daughters of God in the maturing Body and Bride of Christ on earth. She is beyond a doubt the most joyful excited supernatural faith-filled person I know. She could talk for days of the supernatural miraculous events she has experienced. Just between you and I, in her stories from the past she often refers to herself in the third person as “the evangelist” or “the minister” etc..

EDITOR’S NOTE: Just a reminder: try as ISIS might to destroy Christianity and its faithful, they cannot lay hands, bombs or knives on the Holy Spirit. Nor can they ever kill the King of kings because “He lives forevermore.” As we’ve seen in China, the more persecution presses in, the stronger Believers’ faith becomes. ISIS can never touch “Christ in us, the hope of glory.”…
