1. The Virgin Bride Church Manifesting Christ Incarnate – By Ronald D McGatlin
.

A wonderful thing is now taking place in our world. There is a fresh new worldwide virgin Bride of Christ that is undefiled by the hands of man. There is a Holy Spirit-connected and God-empowered Body of pure-hearted believers being formed by the Spirit.

God is adding to this body of made-new virgin believers daily. For the most part the people do not fully recognize that they are being transformed or changed by the work of God that is within them and the very difficult circumstances around them. In the early stages of the process, they are usually only aware of the crumbling or fading of their past life and a growing intimate love relationship with God in Christ by the Spirit.

Without even trying to be cleansed or unified, many groups and prophetic circles of influence are moving toward a more unified focused word from God, a kingdom word of LOVE for God and man. It is a message of intimate relationship with God.

Preaching unification among the splintered religious groups of the passing church systems is a futile attempt. It is an attempt to order the surface without changing the core. The entire tree must be changed or removed. A whole new tree must be in place to produce the fruit of the LOVE of God in the Kingdom of God.

Christ Jesus is the vine, and we are the branches on which the fruit is manifest. (John 15:5). Christ in us is the one and only true hope of the world. (Colossians 1:26-27).

The Apostolic Foundational Work

Apostolic foundational ministry of Spirit God outside the religious camps and apart from the hands of man is flowing by the Spirit from the heart of God into the hearts of the people of God. (Hebrews 13:12-13).

Much the same as the planting of Christ in the Virgin Mary by the Holy Spirit brought about the first incarnation of Christ in mankind, the virgin Bride is receiving the seed of Christ by the Holy Spirit bringing forth the incarnation of Christ in this world. (Luke 1:26:35).

The seed of Christ Jesus Yeshua planted by Holy Spirit is maturing and growing forth into the world. Christ is being formed in man to do the work of our Heavenly Father on earth.

Mary’s Plans Were Given Over to God.

Never before had a virgin given birth to a child. When the angel spoke to Mary, she did not know for sure how Joseph would respond. However, she could be rather sure about how the people around her would see this pregnancy. All the plans she had for her life were put in jeopardy to receive the planted seed of the Son of God within her.

So it is in this day of intimate relationship with God and receiving the seed of Christ. The maturing of that seed is the reality of Christ in us, which is the hope of glory in this world. Our previous plans for our lives are to be laid down upon the altar of God. The portion of those plans that is of God will be given back to us, but all else is left on the altar as a sacrificed life, a living sacrifice. (Romans 12:1-2).

Also, like it was with Mary, the religious people around us are not going to understand or believe what God is doing with us. The seed of promise imparted by God within us will become the target of strong attack by those who do not yet see or understand what God is doing in this world.

We must protect the precious seed of God that is planted in us.

During this time of pregnancy with the plan of God, the enemy will send strong words demanding that we abort “this foolish thing and return to the old way.” It is important to protect the seed of promise of God within us. There needs to be an environment of peaceful godly agreement to help nurture the precious life that God is bringing forth.

During a vulnerable time of her pregnancy, Mary went to spend three months with Elizabeth who greatly encouraged and blessed her. (Luke 1:39-45). We may have to disengage from relationships that are highly critical and speaking against what God is doing within us. Today, the enemy desperately wants to destroy the manifesting of Christ incarnate in the virgin Bride of Christ on earth.

It is the virgin Bride that receives the seed and births the child. It is the Body of believers at large that by the Holy Spirit receives and matures the child into the incarnate Man of Christ bringing forth the fullness of the kingdom of God on Planet Earth.

The Woman, the Male Child, and the Dragon

Revelation chapter 12 tells the great story in parabolic form of the woman giving birth and the dragon attempting to destroy the Christ Child, the male child carrying the seeds of the kingdom to bring forth many Sons to glory. (Hebrews 2:10).

The book of Revelation is a Spirit book written by the Spirit to be understood by the Spirit. God had the writer veil the deep Spirit understanding of the story of the works of God and man at that time as well as the past and the future in figurative, parabolic, and symbolic language by the Spirit.

Many intelligent scholars have tried to “break the code” or “interpret the meaning” with natural understanding or a mixture of spiritual with their natural understanding. In so doing they missed much of the true Spirit messages that can only be understood by Spirit revelation. The title of the book is the first key, “Revelation.”

The Manifesting Sons of God

The truly born again new creation virgin believers who are led by the Spirit are the Sons of God for which the creation has groaned in waiting. (Romans 8:20-22). The time is now and just ahead of us for the kingdoms of this world to become the kingdoms of our God.

All of the suffering of the process is not worthy to be compared with the joy set before us in the fullness of the kingdom of heaven ruling and reigning on earth. (Romans 8:18). We are blessed to be chosen to become a part of the sufferings of Christ in the power and glory of His LOVE filling the earth.

THE GREAT BALANCE OF HEAVEN

The scales of heaven will come into perfect balance. The greater the pain of sacrifice, the greater the glory of God. “Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy. If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you.” 1 Peter 4:12-14.

“For this is commendable, if because of conscience toward God one endures grief, suffering wrongfully. For what credit is it if, when you are beaten for your faults, you take it patiently? But when you do good and suffer, if you take it patiently, this is commendable before God. For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps.” 1 Peter 2:19-21.

When we are led by the Spirit to do a good thing of God and then suffer for doing it, a deficit is created in God’s balance scales. The glory of God is poured out upon us to bring the scales of heaven back into balance.

All things still work together for good for those who love God and are called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28-29).

MAN’S ATTEMPT AT KINGDOM WITHOUT GOD

The false attempts of man working with anti-Christ spirits to bring a manmade unity and peace on earth will come to an abrupt end. God will cause even these false works to work together for the good of the purpose of God and His called people.

Natural man without God can rationally reason in his mind that which is needed to attempt to bring peace among all mankind in the world. Without knowing God, human beings are seeking world peace by seeking to cause the people of the world to adopt ways of life that will accomplish some facsimile of the results of God’s pure love without God. However, since this plan is only a substitute or counterfeit plan, it always fails.

The humanistic counterfeit plan is the best man can come up with without God. It is a noble attempt at peace that will always fail. Humanism and “New Age” type philosophies of human kindness and passivity are serious attempts to bring peace and harmony on earth.

One world government with attempted equal sharing of natural resources and provisions among all peoples and nations is a human attempt to establish one kingdom ruling over all the people. One source of enforcement to bring all things into equal balance among the peoples with one strong enforcement army to rule over all people and nations. This is a humanistic counterfeit plan of the enemy to replace the true kingdom of God on earth.

One great flaw in the plan is that it requires there be a ruling class of people to enforce the rule over the lower class of people. Without the love of God, the ruling group will exempt themselves from the rules or laws of the land and live as lords or masters over all the other people. They assume the role of God and Christ over the masses of people who become powerless slaves. The influence of the powers of darkness will make life miserable for the common people.

This is what is at stake before us in this day in the USA and the world. The political anarchy dividing the people is not ultimately about political parties or good versus evil. IT IS ABOUT GOD OR NO GOD. IT IS ABOUT LIGHT OR DARKNESS RULING IN THIS WORLD.

THERE IS NO MIDDLE GROUND.

Either the light of God and heaven will rule in the world, or the darkness of Satan and hell will rule in the lives of mankind.

This conclusion is before us. We are the agents of God sent and empowered to bring forth the reality of the rule of LOVE, the rule of the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.

All the power and wisdom of heaven is with us. Christ is forming in us to lead His people to the final victory. In this day let us become willing volunteers to bring forth the light of the morning in the dew of His presence to renew this world to the rule of Father God, the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.

Your people shall be volunteers in the day of Your power, in the beauties of holiness, from the womb of the morning, you have the dew of Your youth. Psalm 110:3.

3. Blessed Are the Pure in Heart

by Curtis Crews

Matthew 5:8 “Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God”

I frustrate the grace of God when I don’t see God in my life. I blame the devil, I blame man, I blame the government and I blame my circumstance and my spiritual progress comes to a standstill! When I am left in a circumstance, that’s God. There is an eternal purpose that must be wrought in me. My heart reaction when I am tested proves where I am really at in my walk with the Lord.

Psalm 23:4 “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me”

Could the Lord lead you through the valley of the shadow of death? Would you be fearful there or would you be so one with the Him that you could actually minister in such a place? Our usefulness in the things of God is measured by our reaction to the things that God could prevent but chooses to allow us to experience. If in the middle of these, we learn to walk in unbroken communion with Him then it is no longer us that lives but Christ that lives in us and He knows that He can place us in any circumstance and we will be at peace and our heart and soul will be available to be used by the Lord to minister in any situation. When I see what God is after and His work has been fully accomplished in me then I will no longer see myself, but I will see God in all things. This is a pure heart that has already entered in to His Kingdom right here, right now.

Philippians 4:11 “Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content”

Seeing God in all things means we have lost sight of ourselves. When we begin our spiritual journey, we see good and evil through natural eyes. We must go through the greatest of all transformations which is to have our mind renewed. Eternity’s ways and thoughts must become ours during this lifetime. To be delivered from something is wonderful, to be transformed in the middle of it is to enter the Kingdom.

Romans 14:17 For the kingdom of God is … righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost”
