A PIVOTAL EVENT – KINGDOM OF CHRIST WITHIN YOU – By Ronald D McGatlin
The one most pivotal event of all history was the birth, life, crucifixion, resurrection, ascension, and the return of Christ Jesus in the Holy Spirit to indwell His people. Time is measured by before and after Christ Jesus lived incarnate on earth. Our calendar measures time before Christ as counting down to the birth of Jesus. The years after His birth are counted upward measuring the years after Christ.
Many people now on earth may soon measure their personal lives as before the great fall of their past lives and the beginning of their next life on earth. A pivotal moment of our personal lives is before us.
Almost everything changes in a pivotal moment of time as our life that was, becomes the life that is now. Our abruptly changing life is only a microcosm of the world’s pivotal change as “the world that was” becomes “the world that is,” a new world, the kingdom of God.
Consider the thousands of people suddenly driven from their homes and their past lives by the multitude of huge forest fires burning in the western USA and other parts of the world. Hundreds if not thousands of them return to a pile of ashes and charred concrete.
Even more devastatingly life-changing is the hundreds of thousands if not millions of refugees driven from their homes and their past lives by violent wars and extreme persecution in recent years.
Consider that entire nations that are struggling to find food, water, and other necessities of life as national economies falter and fail due to ungodly corrupt leadership and widespread ungodly living. Even the strongest nations are being stretched economically into mammoth unpayable debt while striving to maintain the illusion of prosperity and a high standard of living.
THIS IS NOT ALL BAD NEWS
Yes, the increasingly cataclysmic events like floods, fires, wars, persecutions, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis, droughts, and other earth-shaking, life-changing events are indeed bad news.
However, the good news is that this is the last resort and the only remaining way for a stubbornly rebellious world to be changed. A world of godless people addicted to the darkness of evil and deceived by the lies of secular and religious philosophies of Babylonian humanism must be changed.
Worshiping the created instead of the Creator has led to massive deception and twisting of light into darkness and darkness into light.
THE GOOD NEWS IS CHRIST JESUS IN HIS BODY AND BRIDE
Can you see in the Spirit that which is already beginning to happen around you? A godly people empty of self and filled with Christ by the Spirit are being formed on earth to show the desperate people of the world the way to the reality of the kingdom of God life now on earth.
The “Christ in you” people are coming forth on earth to demonstrate the love and power of the kingdom of God to the desperate people of the world. (Colossians 1:26-27).
Many lukewarm pleasure-seeking people are beginning to awaken to the reality of God and His kingdom life. As they experience the loss of their past religious and secular self-focused lives, they will become increasingly urgent in seeking God and His kingdom with their whole hearts. (Jeremiah 24:4-8).
The wars between hard-hearted religious or secular systems seeking to rule the world by cunning and force will destroy one another as much of Matthew 24 becomes a visible reality in this world. In the intense shaking of all that can be shaken, many will see and be drawn to the light of the unshakable kingdom of God. (Hebrews 12:26-29) (Isaiah 60:1-2) (Matthew 4:16).
Many will abandon their lingering inner desires for their old life and turn toward the unshakeable kingdom of God. The great harvest is not a seeking for better religion but rather a seeking for the reality of the kingdom of God on earth.
The new creation people are being prepared to be the Sons of God working with the Holy Angels to bring forth the new creation world. The kingdoms of this world are becoming the kingdoms of our God. (2 Corinthians 5:17) (Revelation 11:15).
DISCOVERING THE REAL SOURCE AND PURPOSE OF LIFE NOW
Many are beginning to discover the joyful life of divine purpose. The great satisfaction of life is knowing who you are and God’s purpose for your life.
Without the revelation of the kingdom of God, it is not possible to fully grasp the ultimate purpose for your life.
Every human being on earth has a divine purpose in the great all-inclusive plan and purpose of Father God Almighty, Jehovah, Yeshua, Lord and King of all, the creator and sustainer of all creation on earth and in heaven.
CONNECTING INTO OUR KINGDOM PURPOSE
A fresh burst of effervescing life explodes in our inner being the moment connection is made to our divine purpose in the kingdom of God now in this life. Seeing the kingdom of God by the Holy Spirit and experiencing our personal part in the reality of the plan and purpose of God for us in His kingdom is exhilarating beyond description.
Suddenly life has meaning and purpose beyond our fondest imaginations. There is no such thing as depression in the reality of the kingdom of God life.
The excitement quickens us into realms of joyful light and life that opens doors of creative reality and abundance of love and power.
Empowerment of grace through abounding faith lifts us into loving glorious life of abundant productivity and accomplishments beyond our dreams.
THE FULFILLMENT OF HEAVENLY PURPOSE
It is as if we live in a glorious dream of radiant abundance as one with God. We seem to be watching the awesome creative works of God come to fruition before our eyes. Though creation power flows through us, we seem as spectators watching the marvelous works of God from heaven manifesting on earth.
We are no longer troubled but completely at rest in perfect peace in all situations. We always are secure and have enough to complete the plan of God at the time. We are the same whether it appears to the world that we are abased or abounding.
We go through the storms with unchallenged faith and inner joy that is untouched by our external circumstances. All is well in our abundant lives whether we live long or die young in battle; whether we are in charge of much wealth or have no more than food and clothing, we are equally content. (I Timothy 6:8) (Romans 14:8) (Philippines 4 11-13).
As faithful sons and daughters of Father God, all things are our inheritance. We are stewards or managers of all that our heavenly Father places in our hands to manage for Him. We are made kings and priests to rule and reign in His kingdom on earth. (Luke 19:12-27) (Romans 8:14-17) (Revelation 5:10).
RECEIVING HEAVENLY SUBSTANCE
We freely receive all needed authority, provisions, and guidance needed to bring forth the fullness of the pure holy reality of the kingdom from heaven. The love of God flows into us by the miraculous substance of God to rule and reign through us in this world. The infusion of Spirit God into mortal beings creates mortality putting on or receiving the immortality of “God-life” abiding in and upon human beings, the Body of Christ. (Romans 8:9-11) (1 Corinthians 15:51- 58)
The trumpet is sounding! Powerful trumps of unspeakable words of “God-life” are signaling the arising of transformation armies riding upon Spirit powers of angelic beings to dissolve the false and to reinstate the rightful King of Glory upon the throne of humanity on earth.
Lift up your eyes to the top of the mountain of God from which all power and authority comes to dwell upon and within you. Allow the consuming fire of love to melt away all that hinders the kingdom reality of exhilarating life of heaven from fully arising in and upon you. (Isaiah 2:2) (Psalm 121) (Hebrews 12:28).
INTIMATE SPIRITUAL RELATIONSHIP
Receive the kiss of the Lord firmly upon your forehead and ever so lightly upon your mouth as He breathes the breath of heavens immortal life into your mortal body. Breathe deeply of the breath of heaven and speak the living words of life into the willing volunteers as the dew of the morning of heaven comes to earth. (Song of Solomon 1:2) (Psalm 2:12) (John 20:22) (Genesis 2:7) (Psalm 110:3).
Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!” Revelation 11:15.
Thank you, Jesus! Amen and Amen!
