The kingdom of God on earth remains a hidden mystery to many people. We have entered a new season of the mystery being revealed to multitudes of people who are being prepared to receive the Master Key to God’s Master Plan.
Currently, both a season of great blessing and intense difficulty are being used by God to prepare a people to take a forever step into the deep Spirit mist of God’s glorious mystery life of total love.
GOD IS THE SOURCE OF PURE HOLY LOVE.
GOD IS LOVE!
“And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him,” 1 John 4:16.
GOD IS SPIRIT!
“God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth,” John 4:24.
GOD IS LOVE, AND GOD IS SPIRIT! Therefore, love is a Spirit Substance imparted from God. Love comes to mankind though intimate connection to God in Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit of God.
“And I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the LOVE WITH WHICH YOU LOVED ME MAY BE IN THEM, AND I IN THEM.” John 17:26.
The Spirit love of God is not the natural “love” of fallen mankind. The natural man cannot know the things of the Spirit. (1 Cor 2:9-14).
Without the work of Spirit God in man, we cannot know or possess the pure holy love of God. The baptism in the Holy Spirit is a supernatural baptism in the pure holy love of God’s Spirit. The primary characteristic of fully receiving and being baptized in the Holy Spirit is Love.
The natural “love” that the natural man experiences always has some essence of self in it. This natural affection such as a mother’s love for her child or a man and woman’s romantic “love” for one another can be turned into despising or even hate when it causes intense pain or disappointment.
The pure holy love of God for us and in us is not affected by or dependent upon that which the one loved either feels or does. The love of God for us and in us is unconditional and undaunted by circumstances. Yes, there will be pain when pure love is rejected, but the pure love is untouched by it. Where there is great love, there can be great pain. However, pure holy love is felt even more intensely and becomes a strong force toward potentially changing the situation.
I write these things from revelation of the written word by the Holy Spirit and from practical experience of almost 85 years of life, and now over 64 of those years walking with God and seeking first His kingdom. I have written of my own supernatural Spirit experience of receiving the pure holy love of God in another article called “RECEIVING THE MASTER KEY OF THE KINGDOM.” You can read it here:
THE CORE OF THE KINGOM
The love of God in Christ Jesus is the foundational core of the reality of the kingdom of God on earth as in heaven. Pure holy love is the core ingredient of abundant quality life in this world. Health, well-being, prosperity, righteousness, peace, joy, and every good quality of life comes by LOVE.
All that we have need of and all we desire in this life is added to us by the love of God. Our part is to seek God’s kingdom and righteous way of being and doing by ABIDING in Christ Jesus and Christ abiding in us. Matthew 6:33, John 15:7, Colossians 1:27.
God’s character and quality of life of love abiding in mankind is the source of the kingdom of God coming forth on earth. Everything on earth must respond to the love of God in His sons and daughters in Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit.
All the earth’s natural systems respond to the God life in man and begin to move into the perfect order of God’s original design for creation. The planet of war and strife becomes the peaceful garden of the will and ways of the kingdom of heaven ruling and reigning on earth.
In this season we are rapidly moving toward the transformation brought about by the reconciliation of mankind, and subsequently this world, to God’s designed plan of the kingdom of heaven on Planet Earth.
Creation now groans in the suffering of the fallen ungodly ways of mankind distorting and disrupting the perfect plan and order of God’s design for His beautiful creation. Creation is designed to be a visible image of the glory of its creator. (Romans 8:21-22)
The work and life of Christ Jesus, the only begotten Son of God, is the reconciliation and restoration of all things on earth back to the kingdom of God. The bondages imposed on this world through the fallen ways of mankind are now being broken off the people of God. God’s people are being set free from the darkness and oppression of the enemies of God and man.
ALL THINGS IN GOD’S KINGDOM ARE ORDERED BY LOVE! ALL OF THE LAW IS FULFILLED BY PURE HOLY LOVE.
Love by its nature fulfills all the law. Where there is no love there needs to be law, but where love is there is no need for law.
Luke 22:37-40: “Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”
Romans 13:8-10: “Owe no one anything except to LOVE one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law. 9 For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not bear false witness,” “You shall not covet,” and if there is any other commandment, are all summed up in this saying, namely, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” 10 Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.”
Power and Wisdom
Power and wisdom come through love. The greatest motivational force on earth is love. Only for love will one lay down his life for another. Only for the love of God will we willingly lay down our life as crucified with Christ. It is by love that we are drawn to lose our self-life and enter into the far greater life in God and Him in us in Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit.
Wisdom comes from heaven through the love connection with God as the light of God flows to our hearts on earth.
Love is light to a dark world.
More on the light next week.
Rom 1:17 “For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith”
After we have walked with the Lord for some time we discover there are many levels of relationship and we begin to sense when we are reaching the end of a level and on the verge of a new beginning. A season of measure, blessing and provision gives way to the Lords desire is to meet us in a new way. He may suspend some outward blessing or withhold some provision to get our full attention. We may find ourselves in a time of trial or become very conscious of a failure or defeat. In past dealings we may have reacted by blaming the devil but now we long to meet the Lord and glorify Him in the midst of these intense pressures.
2 Corinthians 3:18 (Amplified Bible) “And we all, with unveiled face, continually seeing as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are progressively being transformed into His image from [one degree of] glory to [even more] glory, which comes from the Lord, [who is] the Spirit”
The revelation and knowledge of Him that had been tested and proven in the past and resulted in many blessings now seems to fade as “deep calls us to more”. He must increase and I decrease. His fullness means my emptiness.
Galatians 2:20 “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me”
The Holy Spirit seeks to reveal this crucified life in each of us so that only the Lord may be seen. How many would be reduced to this level? Through a personalized cross He is replacing the image of self by forming the image of His Son that “the life of one” may be seen in a people. As we spend time with the Lord each day every stronghold will come to the surface and be consumed in the fire of His presence. My fears, my opinions and judgements of others must be placed on the altar to be consumed. How sensitive must we be in our reaction to the Holy Spirit. He seeks to bring us to a place where He can touch the parts of us that others see but we are blind to that filter and mix with His presence. We may have many words to say but the Spirit may be saying be quiet and listen. He may want a personal habit or a friendship to be surrendered. Anything in us that imposes itself on others and brings us into view must be yielded so that we remain hidden in Him.
Colossians 3:3 “For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God”
