The End of “Unlove” – The “Day of the Lord”

By Ron McGatlin

Probably all of us are feeling an intensification of the shift taking place in our world as it comes into the next season or phase of the major transformation God is bringing in our world. This article follows the previous one on “The Transformational Love of God,” and deals with the transformation of a world without love to a world ordered by the love of God.

“Unlove” is the absence of God and His love.

Life in the fallen world is based in and derived from unlove. Every aspect of natural man's life in the fallen world is guided by the ways of unlove.

Mankind is designed to abide in God and God in him.

Great emptiness characterizes the lives of people whose inherent need for God’s love is unfulfilled.

The neediness in mankind can never be fulfilled without the continuing experience of the reality of God’s love filling our lives by the Holy Spirit.

Man’s desperate need for more and more of something to fill the emptiness without God leads to inordinate affections such as lust for romantic activity, substance addictions, depression, and other negative disorders, including things such as, competition, greed, strife, fear, pride, and every negative, stressful, destructive force known to man. The entire world becomes filled with disorder and strife. War is everywhere as people compete against one another. People fall into bondage to inordinate sex, drugs, alcohol, religious deception, and many other entanglements in an attempt to satisfy the emptiness of unlove. All of the problems of the world stem from the basic lack of God’s love in mankind.

Husbands and wives fight and divorce. Employees strive against and deceive employers. Employers exploit employees. People climb over one another in a competitive effort to attain a higher position. Customers strive with merchants and merchandisers take advantage of customers. Law enforcement fights with criminals in an attempt to enforce thousands of laws enacted in an attempt to control the deceit and violence of the people. The whole world becomes a battlefield.

Everything in business and all of life revolves around trying to get more while giving the least possible to get it. Even the highest of charitable human motives are mixed with hypocritical values of "What's in it for me?" All this and much more exist because of the lack of love abiding in mankind.

Are you beginning to see how that God's love in man can alleviate needs and stop strife in the world? No more wars, no more crime, and, eventually, no more sickness, no more disease. Some would say, “Yes, but it is not possible for man to love and live this way,” and they would almost be right, if Jesus had not come.

 Jesus made a way where there was no way. He provided all that is needed for us to be fully redeemed into life in God and His love. Christ Jesus did what others did not do and lived as one with God in the Holy Spirit. The GOOD NEWS is that Christ Jesus can now live in us by the Holy Spirit. Thus, the potential now exists for all to have Christ's life abiding within. Through Christ everyone can now abide in God and His love. We can now bring the transforming power of God's love into practical reality in the world through Christ in us by the Holy Spirit. Christ in His people can destroy the works of the devil.  

1 John 3:8: For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.   

The greatest mystery of the kingdom, the transformational power of love is changing our world. The world has already been greatly affected by the love of God expressed in the cross of Christ Jesus. No other person in all of the world’s history has had as great a transformational effect as Christ Jesus. Now, the LIFE OF JESUS is set to transform every area of life in the world through Christ Jesus living in us

By love, individuals filled with Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit, can transform families, businesses, schools, media, cities, nations, and the world.

The End of “Unlove”The “Day of the Lord”

Perhaps one of the most dramatic interventions of God ever to take place in our world is soon coming upon the entire world to destroy unlove and all the works it has produced. For many years, God has been pouring out His Spirit and His pure holy love into His people producing the life of Christ within His holy people. This will increase and continue through the season of the ending of the rule of unlove. God has prepared and is preparing a pure and holy people filled with His love to bring forth the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.

The next big intervention of God is the great cleansing work of destruction of the wicked and all that lifts itself against God, all that will not turn to God.

What is the “Day of the Lord”? (For a very enlightening and more detailed biblical study of the answer to this question follow the link to Kingdom Growth Guides and scroll down to (#038). http://www.openheaven.com/forums/forum_posts.asp?TID=12550&a mp;PN=1 - http://www.openheaven.com/forums/forum_posts.asp?TID=12550&a mp;a mp;PN=1

There have been many “Day of the Lord” judgments throughout biblical history. The “Day of the Lord” would come against an area or nation for destruction of evil.

The “Day of the Lord” that we are entering now is part of the process of purification leading to a godly kingdom people ruling on earth God’s way. The chastening and purging is aimed at the pride and loftiness of man, the ways of man that are exalted over the ways of God. “Day of the Lord” judgment brings chastening for cleansing of God’s people, those who will repent and turn from their ways of mixture to God’s way. The day of the Lord is always chastening for God’s people. It is not intended for their total destruction. Rather, it is for their purification. No matter how severe the chastening, there will always be a purified remnant. It is not so among the ungodly. The “Day of the Lord” can bring total destruction and annihilation to the evil and ungodly of the world.

In both the Old and New Testament the “Day of the Lord” is a season of destruction for the ungodly and a purification of God’s people resulting in the shining forth of God’s ways to govern the world. The focus is not only fire but also the beautiful kingdom of God brought forth from the ashes.

Isa 61:3: To console those who mourn in Zion, To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.

Mat 13:40-43 "Therefore as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of this age."The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, "and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. "Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!

Personal “Day of the Lord”

Like me, probably many reading this have gone through a personal “Day of the Lord” when great devastation and despair came upon our lives. Some may be going through a personal “Day of the Lord” time of reckoning now. Sons of God, those whom God loves, He will chasten, and it never seems good at the time. When all that once sustained us stops working for us and all we have built crumbles around us, the pain may seem unbearable. Brokenness of our ways turns us to His ways, and we are further purified and made more holy vessels for His use.

Corporate day of the Lord

Just as individuals may meet the “Day of the Lord,” so it is for families, tribes, nations, and the entire world.

The great and dreadful “Day of the Lord” for the entire world is now at hand.

After the destruction has done away with the loftiness (pride) of man, after everything high and lifted up is thrown down and only God remains exalted, the purification is accomplished and restoration begins. The new life of restoration is always more righteous, more holy, more filled with peace and joy than the old life. The kingdom of God is righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.

Father, Your kingdom come and your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Amen.

The Sword of the Lord Comes.

YES!

Prov 11: 2  When swelling and pride come, then emptiness and shame come also, but with the humble (those who are lowly, who have been pruned or chiseled by trial, and renounce self) are skillfull and godly Wisdom and soundess.

11:4  Riches provide no security in any day of wrath and judgment, but righteousness (uprightness and right standing with God) delivers from death.

Ron,
I am always blessed by Father's word through you. Thank you for sharing His heart with us. I have been through my personal day of the Lord, and survived to come out on the other side a new creation. Love certainly is the key to everything. God is now restoring order in every area of my life. You never fail to post what I am currently experiencing. Thank you for your faithfulness and for starting OH so that we can connect with others who are in process.
You are a treasure filled with His love and it shines and pours through you exquisitly to light the path for those who follow Christ as you do. The Sword of the Lord has come and used your lips to bring His Truth once again.
Bless you, Ron

Cindy, thanks for the very kind and encouraging words. It sure is great that He loves us so much that He will do what is needed to bring us to purity and holiness in Him. What a wonderful God we serve. When our "Day of the Lord" is past we love Him even more and with purity love those around us. Even those who come against us, they do not know what they do when they come against the Lord in us.

Love and blessings,

Ron

Amen Gayle! Yes His love in us cast out fear and overcomes all evil bringing glory to the Lord and JOY in our heart. Keep on praising Him.  You can never praise Him too much.

Love and blessings,

Ron,
I have certainly been in training for many years to love the unlovely and forgive and love those who have persecuted me. It is a love that cannot be manifested in the flesh, but only produced as a fruit as we receive Father's unconditional love for us and it so fills us that it cannot help but to spill out on all those who are around us. He is the root, and only he can produce the fruit of love or any other fruit of the spirit.
