1. Love and Order – The Way to Peace – By Ronald D McGatlin
World order or disorder is established in the people first and then manifested into the world. Whatever is in the hearts of the people will manifest in the world.
In God’s ultimate order of all creation, there are two basic programs of principles and methods of irresistible force realities that are applied by God.
A shallow investigation by human beings sees these two basic fundamental all-encompassing realities as in tension with each other. At the core reality the two work together to accomplish the order of God in creation.
The two fundamental realities of God’s ultimate governance applied toward mankind and this world are often summed up by mankind in word phrase idioms such as: darkness and light, left and right, sheep and goats, law and grace, Old Testament and New Testament concepts, and others.
The most accurate true expressions of these two methods of God’s governance of the world are LOVE AND LAW. Each are used in differing situations to produce order which leads toward peace on Planet Earth.
LOVE AND LAW – GOD’S KINGDOM RULE ON EARTH
Both love and law are simultaneously applied to govern the world and all that is in it, on it, or around it. Both are required in the present world condition and need. The two are different works for one ultimate purpose. However, one is dominant over the other.
Love is the predominant of the two. All of the law is fulfilled by love. Love is the father and the mother of law. Love is for everyone. Law is only for the disobedient out of order who have not yet fully receive the love of God. Law is for the ungodly. (Matthew 22:37-40) (1 Timothy 1:9).
Without God in the life, it is impossible to have love, and therefore law must be applied to produce order on earth.
A popular phrase in the natural world is “law and order.” This refers to the order of world governance produced by law. This type of order is always imperfect and temporary and a source of tension between good and evil. It can never completely produce God’s perfect order of life. Only love can bring the perfect order of God’s governance through mankind to the entire world. LOVE AND ORDER is the phrase in the Spirit world.
THE WORLD MUST COME INTO THE ORDER OF GOD’S LOVE
The world will come into the order of God’s love as the hearts and minds, the spirits and souls of mankind are filled with God’s love. The ultimate massive power of God, heaven, and the holy angels are fully available to dissolve all evil disobedience and disorder caused by the lack of God’s love working in and through mankind.
The disorder of “unlove” is the reason the devil or the forces of darkness are allowed to persecute the church and cause apocalyptic, cataclysmic events of tribulation on earth. Death, dissolution, and destruction are corrective forces built into the systems of this world. It is the love of God that designed the systems of earth to provide for dissolving the unloving disobedience from the earth and to return the earth to the Garden of Eden lifestyle on earth as it is in heaven.
FATHER GOD’S OBJECTIVE IN THIS WORD TODAY
By impartation of His love, Father is seeking to reorder our nations and your life and mine away from trying to be and do righteousness. We and our nations and tribes have in this season come to the place of FALLING UPON THE STONE AND BEING BROKEN. The only other alternative is for the stone to FALL UPON US AND GRIND US TO POWDER.
“Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures: The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone. This was the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes’? 43 “Therefore I say to you, the kingdom of God will be taken from you and given to a nation bearing the fruits of it. 44 And whoever falls on this stone will be broken; but on whomever it falls, it will grind him to powder.” Matthew 21:42-44.
In Matthew 21:33-46, Jesus spoke the Parable of the Wicked Vinedressers to the religious leaders. Like the leaders of many nations and tribes today, they had been given all that is needed to bring forth the fruit of the kingdom on earth. The vinedressers decided to take the fruit and the vineyard for themselves rather than give it to the rightful owner. They plotted to kill the Son, the heir to the vineyard, and keep it for themselves.
Christ Jesus is the true Son of the Father, the owner and provider of the kingdom vineyard. There is, in this day, a massive plot to kill or remove anything of the Son, Christ Jesus, from this earth and take over the “vineyard” of God to consume it upon their own lust.
In this parable Jesus identified Himself as the stone rejected by the builders. The chief cornerstone of the kingdom of pure holy love on earth. For those leaders to fall upon this stone would mean great brokenness of the systems and laws that supported their lifestyle of positions of authority. However, to fail to fall upon the stone of his love and provision and be broken would cause the stone of the law to fall upon them and crush them to powder or, in other words, the destruction of the authority and provisions of their lives. This is the same for us today.
Today the people on earth, beginning with the leaders, have for the most part, failed to bear the fruit of the kingdom unto God. There has been a massive turning from the plan of God for His vineyard, in the lack of bearing the fruit of the real kingdom of God. The Son is again being crucified in the hearts and lives of generations in an effort to steal the inheritance of His vineyard. (1 Corinthians 2:6-8) (Hebrews 6:4-8).
BUT GOD IS RAISING UP A PEOPLE TO RECEIVE THE KINGDOM
“But, beloved, we are confident of better things concerning you, yes, things that accompany salvation, though we speak in this manner. 10 For God is not unjust to forget your work and labor of LOVE which you have shown toward HIS NAME, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister. 11 And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end, 12 that you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.” Hebrews 6:9-12.
God is bringing many sons to glory, mature Sons, joint heirs with Christ Jesus to bring forth God’s order of love ruling in His kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. In this season mature Sons of God are arising on earth. Sons for which creation has groaned in waiting for two millennia. (Hebrews 2:10-11) (Romans 8:12-22).
“But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:8-9).
“Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” Luke 12:32.
Love never fails and
His kingdom never ends.
2. Clean Water of Cleansing – By Jerry Joyner
Ezekiel 36:24-31 For I will take you from among the nations, gather you out of all countries, and bring you into your own land. Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them. Then you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; you shall be My people, and I will be your God. I will deliver you from all your uncleanness’s. I will call for the grain and multiply it, and bring no famine upon you. And I will multiply the fruit of your trees and the increase of your fields, so that you need never again bear the reproach of famine among the nations. Then you will remember your evil ways and your deeds that were not good; and you will loathe yourselves in your own sight, for your iniquities and your abominations.
It’s amazing to me how much the Word of God keeps becoming alive in me. I can so identify with these scriptures. This is exactly what God is doing in my life. I am sure to everyone who has ever striven to enter the narrow gate, whether they realized the truth and read this particular passage of the Holy Bible or not they would identify with these words of truth. Again, as always this passage must be spiritually discerned. Washing of the water of the word as rivers of life spring out of our innermost being. As we dwell in the promised land no matter where we are geographically, is of course spiritual. And as God becomes Lord, He suddenly begins to multiply our fruit of the spirit and it just drives us into more and more of a burning desire to cling to Him and desperately want to please Him. We truly begin to live in the promised land. We are set free and need never again bear the reproach of the lack of spiritual truth which is in the world. This famine mentioned here is an absence of the truth in the world today because we as a people have forgotten our God. As we walk with God, as Christ is formed in us, the grain (bread of life), is multiplied in the earth. Scripture gets truer and truer, deeper and deeper as we are purified by the washing of the water of the word. Selah.
