1. Love Creates the Beauty of Holiness – By Ronald D McGatlin
Falling in love with Jesus prepares you and me for the intimate oneness of pure holy relationship as His virgin Bride.
From our first look into the perfect passionate love in His eyes, we are consumed and captivated forever. We are melted in our spirits into a laid down lover, willingly laying down our lives for Him. (1 John 3:16).
Our spirit instantly becomes filled with the beauty of holiness. We instantly becomes one Spirit with Christ. We are pure holy sons and daughters of our Father God. In our spirits we are completely redeemed and made pure and holy the moment Christ Jesus enters our spirits and the two become one. (1Cor 6:17).
From that moment on God, in Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit within us, is progressively working to transform us from the inside out. (Phil 2:13) (Col 1:26-27).
The workings of grace through the “courtship” season of experiencing the love, God within restores or transforms us into one Spirit, soul, and body with Christ. (Eph 5:30).
Our souls and bodies begin to be cleansed and transformed from the inner core of our fully redeemed purified spirit within us. We each enter into a process of our soul (mind, will, and emotions) being cleansed, redeemed, healed, and made whole in harmony with our spirit.
Thus the growing up season has begun as God works in us bringing our souls and eventually our bodies into full agreement and harmony with the Spirit of Christ. It is the grace power within our spirits by the Holy Spirit that progressively purifies our souls and our bodies.
Grace is never a whitewash covering for our continuing ungodly behavior. (Rom 6).
It is the free gift of the empowerment of God within us to overcome all evil and flow the pure holy love and power of God to transform us and the world around us.
Grace is God’s empowerment that works through love in our spirit beings working in our souls and bodies and out to the world. Grace is the works of God in and through us. Our part is believing and receiving His love and reflecting that love back to our Father from whom it comes and out to the world to whom it is sent.
PEACE ON EARTH AND GOODWILL TOWARD MAN. (Luke 2:14).
A land of pristine beauty, flowing clean clear fresh cool water under the soft breeze of the refreshing cool air of Holy Spirit, in the bright light of the glory of Christ Jesus Messiah, is peace to our souls and strength to our bodies.
A fresh garden of delightful aromas of blossoms and ripened fruit, an abundance of tender herbs along with milk and honey in the presence of God – the tender warmth in the arms of our Lord’s embrace – the peace of the beauties of holiness filling our hearts and our lives reflect the joy of love from His face.
Pure holy love, glory, peace, and joy wipes away all tears of past pain and sorrow. We are cleansed, purified, justified, made a new creation, a virgin Bride and a mature Son made wise, strong and able by the living Spirit God within.
THE TIME TO REJOICE IN THE BEAUTY OF HOLINESS!
We have no vile past to look back upon. The beauty of holiness surrounds us, and the glory of God is falling upon us. The angels of heaven are rejoicing with us. Lift up your heads, for your time of rejoicing is come. Praise Him full out with all of your heart and life. Glorify His name in full out praise. Worship Him in the beauty of holiness in the glory of His presence. (Psalm 29) (Psalm 150).
Hear the voice of God speaking to the world, “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him.” Matthew 17:5.
Sing unto the Lord a New Song. (Psalm 33). A song of the beauty of holiness, a song of praise and great joy for your day has come. All heaven and earth rejoices in the revealing this day of the maturing of the sons and daughters setting the world free from the past and boldly entering into the presence of the Lord manifesting the kingdom of God on earth.
Sing, O barren one, for your children are multiplied and their glory fills the earth with the beauty of holiness. Rejoice and be glad for the day of vengeance of the Lord is here, and the glory of the oppressed is made manifest in the praise of freedom and release. (Isa 54).
The prison doors of Babylon are opened and the strong towers of Babylonian captivity are crumbling in the smoke of the burning rubble of the wicked cities of captivity. Come out of Babylon, and forget that which is behind. (Rev 18). Behind you is a scorched earth of smoldering ash, and ahead of you is a Garden of Eden. Let the vision of New Jerusalem fill your hearts. (Jer 51:50).
THE PROMISED LAND IS NOW BEFORE YOU
Move forward to possess that which is your rightful inheritance in the glorious presence of the beauty of holiness. Follow your true Shepherd guiding you from within into the land of promise, the possession of the Lord for you.
Do not look back upon the cities of ruin that were as Sodom and Gomora. Set your eyes upon the beauties of holiness in the Garden of Eden into which you have entered. (Gen 15-26).
It was and is the plan of God that all the earth become the glory of God by His kingdom in us flowing out to transform the world. Let your word and your song be the words and melodies of praise unto the God who has removed us from the past into the glory of His presence in the beauty of holiness reality of His kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.
Lift up your heads, and shout the victory. Lift up your arms in praise to the glory of the God who has brought you through. Let every word from your mouth glorify the Lord God Almighty, our rightful Father in all the family who is in heaven and on earth. Bless the angels who come to you to receive of your joy and blend with your voices in praising our Father. Let all that has breath praise the Lord of glory who abides with you forever.
I was sitting in my prayer room this morning and suddenly I felt His presence so strongly, and I heard Him make a decree over many in the body of Christ.
“What has held you will no longer hold you. You are free!!!”
When I heard Him speak, the last three words were booming with such authority, it was a decree of heaven, it was a decree of the Father. It was a decree that brought about a rushing wind of awakening to the reality of our freedom in Christ.
“So if the Son sets you free from sin, then become a true son and be unquestionably FREE!” – John 8:36 (The Passion Translation)
The Lord spoke to me that He is awakening His people right now to the reality that YOU ARE FREE!!!!! You are being awakened to the reality that in Christ, YOU ARE FREE and the revelation of that POWERFUL TRUTH is about to manifest in your life in a significantly powerful way. I saw the power of God exploding through that revelatory truth and suddenly chains were falling off. Mindsets were shifting. I saw an army of people rising up, weeping, such deep cries from within the core of them and they were decreeing…
“HE PAID FOR THIS! JESUS PAID FOR THIS!!!!!!!!!!!! HE PAID FOR THIS!!!!”
There was a righteous indignation rising up within the people of God that were being filled with the boldness of God, the roar of the Lord and convicted by the powerful truth of Scripture that this was NOT their inheritance. To be caged to things that have held them. To be locked into fears that have tormented them for so long. To be dealing with strongholds all of their lives. To be dealing with lies that continue to plague them. There was this awakening taking place in their hearts that shouted “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, I am not putting up with this anymore, this is NOT my inheritance” and I saw the people of God CHASING after Jesus and the manifestation of His freedom in their lives in greater ways. As they chased after the Lord and chased after freedom, I saw Him ROARING. He is ROARING in righteous anger over the enemy and the captivity that has enslaved so many of His people.
The cry of “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH” that was being birthed through His people, did not begin with them, it did not originate in their hearts, it originated in the heart of God, in the roar of God. It was simply an awakening and alignment with what the Lord is ROARING.
Possibly the greatest awakening and move of the Spirit of God is upon us regarding SONSHIP and the unveiling of God’s glorious sons and daughters!
“The entire universe is standing on tiptoe, yearning to see the unveiling of God’s glorious sons and daughters!” – Romans 8:19 (The Passion Translation)
“YOU ARE FREE” CARRYING A POWERFUL BREAKER ANOINTING
The decree of God that firstly brought remembrance and awakening to the people of God of their freedom in Christ, was also being decreed in the roar of the Lord bringing a tremendous shift caused by the breaker anointing being released.
The atmosphere around me was electric and I wanted to fall on my face before the Lord, because all I could feel was the intense power of God and fear of the Lord. I just wanted to fall on my face and worship Him as the KING OF GLORY steps in.
Psalm 24:7-9 reverberated through my spirit powerfully:
“So wake up you living gateways! Lift up your heads, you ageless doors of destiny! Welcome the King of Glory, for He is about to come through you. You ask, “Who is this Glory-King?” The Lord, armed and ready for battle, the Mighty One, invincible in every way! So wake up you living gateways, and rejoice! Fling wide, you ageless doors of destiny! Here He comes: the King of Glory is ready to come in! You ask, “Who is this King of Glory?” He is the Lord of Victory, armed and ready for battle, the Mighty One, the invincible commander of heaven’s hosts! Yes, He is the King of Glory!” – (The Passion Translation)
He is about to step in and make things right. MAJOR INJUSTICES caused by the enemy are about to be put right by the JUSTICE OF GOD! The Mighty Warrior, the Lord of heaven’s hosts, He’s coming! He’s coming! He’s coming! Everything is going to be alright and turned right! He is coming in you to bring a greater manifestation of the truth that “YOU ARE FREE”, He is coming THROUGH YOU to release FREEDOM and ANOINTING all around, there is such an increase of anointing and flow of the power of the Holy Spirit through you that is about to be powerfully released as the things that have been trying to cage you for so long are REMOVED and no longer have a hold. He is coming FOR YOU, provision, restoration, increase!
A WHOLE NEW REALM OF THE FEAR OF GOD
What you are about to see, how you are about to see the power of God demonstrated, the Warrior King stepping in, the King of Glory arriving in your life and circumstance and through your life in an unprecedented way, is going to leave you speechless. You will be left undone by His power. You will be left completely wrecked by His love. I saw person after person in the body of Christ falling on their faces like Isaiah in Isaiah 6, almost unable to speak at the GLORY of God. The manifest presence of God coming down. He is coming like RAIN. He is coming like FIRE. Get ready, get ready, get ready for a whole new realm of the fear of God to be awakened in your life. It’s not something to run from, it’s something to be embraced, because you are about to COME ALIVE in new ways. You are about to be awakened to your destiny like never before. You are about to become even more overtaken and consumed by the revelation of your righteousness in Christ. The forgiveness of Jesus. The beauty and holiness of our God. The love of God exploding all around.
In His presence and by His fire, you are being refined, purified and prepared to carry His Glory and to arise and shine in greater ways than ever before. (Isaiah 60:1)
HE IS ABOUT TO REVEAL MORE OF HIS HEART, HE IS LOOKING FOR THOSE WHO WILL STEWARD HIS HEART WITH PURITY.
As the fear of God was all around, there was a holy moment. A moment of such stillness, like I didn’t want to move. A holy, holy moment. The weightiness of the moment moved my heart, I didn’t want to speak. Then He spoke:
“To those with no agenda, I am about to reveal more of My heart. To those who are My friends, I am going to reveal a new depth of My heart.”
A cry began to rise within me “Steward His heart well. Steward His heart with purity. Steward His heart with gentleness, tenderness and integrity. He wants to reveal more of His heart, lay aside any agenda, just come to be with Him, to know Him, to be His friend.”
I felt this weighty fear of God, that what He is going to reveal, what is in His heart, His secrets to come, He is not just going to release to anyone. He wants to share His heart, He is just looking for those who will steward His heart well, and place incredible value upon what He speaks.
He is looking for those who are His friend, those who are seeking after Him in deep intimacy to know Him, to minister to Him in purity and first love affection. To those, He is about to open up His heart and secrets in a way you have never imagined. What you are about to see, is going to leave you undone, wrecked, transformed forever. He is looking for those to whom He can entrust the very deep secrets of His heart and it’s not for everyone to know. He will give you the wisdom to know what to reveal, what to show, and what to keep hidden in the garden of intimacy between you and the Lord.
SUDDENLY, I WAS IN A VISION AND I WAS IN THE THRONE ROOM AND HEARD THE LORD DECREE: “EXTEND, EXTEND, EXTEND”
As He decreed, things shifted, angelic hosts moved on His Word to minister to the saints, the Holy Spirit was moving in the lives of believers and everything was being EXTENDED. Boundary lines extended, new territory gained, greater manifestation of freedom on the inside (heart and soul), it was all about the INCREASE OF GOD in EVERY area. God is EXTENDING! He is stretching, strengthening and shifting to bring about a great EXTENSION. “My people are moving into more than they have ever asked for.”
There is a MONUMENTAL SHIFT and EXTENSION taking place. Chase after God, chase hard after Him, don’t stop, keep going, keep moving, what has held you, will hold you no more.
Our beautiful Warrior King is about to step in!
THE KING OF GLORY!
