Melted Together in Love
By Ron McGatlin
All of creation is subject to the liquid fire of the love of God. The most powerful thing in all creation is love. God is love. (1 John 4: 7-8). There is nothing that can stand against and overcome love.
Love is the source of all life. At the center core of all existence is the Spirit love of God from which all creation flows. We have no grid, no screen of imagination to even begin to grasp the greatness of God and His love.
Spirit God’s love is without dimensions; it is without the limits of space or time. There is nothing beyond the reach of love. Nothing is impossible to the God of love. Nothing can encompass, restrict, or stop the love of God.
The fullness of God’s love is in Christ Jesus our Savior, Lord, and King. Where Christ Jesus abides by the Holy Spirit, love prevails.
Ultimate power rests in and flows with the love of God in Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit. Power to overcome all adversity and to heal all wounds flows in love.
Victory in all of life is in the power of love. By love the world is conquered. We are more than conquerors by the love of Christ in us.
“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written: For Your sake we are killed all day long;
We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:35-39.
If we come to God with our whole heart, spirit, soul, and body, the life of Christ abides in us by the Holy Ghost (Holy Spirit). We have the faith and mind of Christ in us as the many membered Body of Christ to believe and experience collectively the fullness of the work of King Jesus ruling on earth by love. (1 Cor 2:16) (1 Cor 12:12) (Gal 2:20).
The Conquering Power of Love
The evil rule of the rebellious people of the world will be dissolved in the presence of the power of love in the person of Christ Jesus in the people of God. The world will see Him as He is in His incarnate body of a multitude of sons and daughters ruling and reigning with Him as the one Head fully connected by love to His entire worldwide body by the Holy Spirit. (2 Thes 1:10) (Col 1:18).
All law is fulfilled by the love of God in Christ Jesus ruling and reigning on earth as one entity with all of His people. (Rom 8:1-11).
Before His crucifixion, Jesus said, “The Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you. 20 A little while longer and the world will see Me no more, but you will see Me. Because I live, you will live also. 20At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you. 21 He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to (or in) him.” John 14:17-21.
God’s Plan of Oneness
God’s plan from the beginning is that mankind be one with Him as His counterpart completing and fulfilling the oneness of intimate passionate love with Him. The covenant union is completed in the circle of the love of God returning to God from man perfecting the creation and fulfilled in the Creator.
God’s love reaches toward everyone. However, the circle of love is not complete until man by an act of his free will enters into the love covenant of God with his whole heart.
The blood covenant of Christ Jesus opens the way to become one with God for everyone who willingly enters by yielding his independence of self-rule to Father God.
In His perfect love for man, Father God and Christ Jesus willingly paid the price to open the way for man to become the pure and holy Bride of Christ, sons of God, in covenant forever as one with God.
This is the kingdom of heaven ruling and reigning on earth by Christ Jesus in His holy people by the Holy Spirit.
The Fruit of Love in the Kingdom
Even though by always seeking the kingdom of God first, all of our natural needs for things like food, water, fresh air, clothing, shelter, and any other thing we need are added to us; yet, these things are NOT the kingdom of God. (Mat 6:33).
“For the kingdom God is not eating and drinking, but RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE AND JOY in the HOLY SPIRIT.” Romans 14:17.
The kingdom of God on earth is only obtainable in the Holy Spirit. Father God in Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit abiding in us is the source of all love and life of the kingdom of God on earth.
Without the work of the Holy Spirit saturating and filling our being, there is no reality of the kingdom of God in our lives. There may be knowledge but not the experience of the reality of the kingdom life. (1 Cor 2: 9-14).
Even seeking in the written word of God is fruitless without the work of the Holy Spirit.
Seeking to love God and trying to be obedient is fruitless without the Holy Spirit.
Seeking to have the power of faith without the love of God in Christ in us by the Holy Spirit is fruitless.
Seeking to minister and prophesy without the fullness and saturation of love in the Holy Spirit does not produce the fruit of the kingdom of God. (1 Cor 13).
Religion, Man’s Attempt
Religion is man’s effort to accomplish these works without the love of God in Christ by the Holy Spirit.
Man-made religion always leads to strife, separation, fruitlessness, and pride that goes before a fall. Religion is the greatest single source of strife, war, and destruction in this world.
The enemy of God has dressed himself to appear as an angel of light to mimic the works of God and deceive the nations. (2 Cor 11:12-15).
The enemy has created counterfeit kingdoms of religion complete with twisted interpretations of the written word. The enemy’s religions always have a measure of truth as bait, and then add the deception of loveless doctrines of demons that become traditions of men that rob the people of the reality of the kingdom of God in their lives. The teachings of demons can eventually cause the deceived people to rise up and seek to destroy the real kingdom of Christ Jesus from the earth. (1 Tim 4:1) (Mat 15:6,9) (John 16:2).
One thing that the enemy can never do a good job of counterfeiting is the pure holy love of God. By the Spirit we can discern true kingdom from the counterfeit, by the presence of the self-sacrificing pure holy love life of God. Pursue love.
The Manifesting of Kingdom Reality Today
For over two millennia since Christ Jesus proclaimed, “the kingdom of God is at hand,” God has been seeking a people who would turn to Him with their whole hearts and receive the gospel of the kingdom to become the manifestation of the kingdom of God on earth.
In all of that time, every work of God on earth has been moving mankind toward a generation that would willingly turn to God with their whole hearts and be prepared to receive the fullness of the kingdom of God on earth.
Every work of miraculous grace and glorious revelation or devastating disaster in all of the world is a part of moving mankind toward the goal of the kingdom of God on earth.
The Proclamation of the Kingdom Today
For the first time since the first century, the real Gospel of the Kingdom is again being widely proclaimed. Only in this season of the last part of the twentieth century and the first part of the twenty-first century has the true Gospel of the Kingdom as Jesus preached and demonstrated began to be restored to mankind and widely presented on earth.
Incomplete portions of the Gospel of the kingdom have been restored over the past five or six centuries. Also a number of false or counterfeit teachings have been perpetrated by the enemy to hide the true kingdom of God coming forth in love.
Today the fuller substance of the kingdom of God is being heralded to the world, and many are hearing and believing the truth of the kingdom of God’s love manifesting in the hearts and lives of His pure holy humble people.
Great Fear is upon the Enemy
The enemy is in a panic of fear as the kingdom of God which he dreads is coming forth and threatens to make an end of his illegal occupation of the systems of life in this world.
Satan and his demons are fighting with all they have, taking any piece of ground that they can in the hearts and minds of mankind.
The influence of the enemy has driven much of the world mad with fear and violent aggression causing them to try to destroy Christ Jesus and His kingdom from the hearts of men and from this world.
The showdown of the ages is before us now. Be strong and very courageous for the Lord your God will fight for you. Do not fear. Do not faint. Do not fall back, but preach and demonstrate the real kingdom with all vigor and strength of the power and love of the Most High God.
In the mighty name of Jesus, ARISE in the strength of the Lord within you and pour out the power of love without hesitation or reservation. Now is our Day of the Lord. Nothing can stand before us for the Lord God is with us! Today is the day of victory! Amen and Amen!
