1. THE GOVERNING EKKLESIA – By Ron McGatlin
THE GOVERNING EKKLESIA.
By Ron McGatlin
Dear Friends in Christ,
Glory to God! That which is perhaps the most damaging error or lack that has limited the fulfillment of the mission of Christ on earth is now in this season being corrected.
The Church centric religious works and practices of the past have separated God from the governance of life especially in the USA and the western world. Governance of life in this world by God through His people as He intended it to be was lost. Without God the people of the western world were left to develop alternate ways and philosophies of governance of life.
The Greek word translated Church in the Bible is Ekklesia and means in part a called assembly for the purpose of practical life issues of governance. The Ekklesia involved God directly involved with the order of life. It was not a religious system that set God apart from this life while focusing on going to heaven after this life.
The kingdom of God is the rule of God in Christ abiding in and with His people.
Where two or three are gathered in His name Christ is in their midst with them to guide and empower the way of God on earth in and through them. If two agree on earth concerning anything they ask it will be done for them. (Matthew 18:19-20).
In other words the kingdom is the governance of God intricately involved in the love, power, and wisdom of God working in the personal and corporate relationships of life.
THE GREATEST REFORMATION
The great news of this season of the history of God and man on earth is that the church emphasis age of God separated from the practical business of life in this world is over. Church as it has been is fading away, and the EKKLESIA of Christ Jesus Yeshua Messiah in and with His people is becoming reality in this world.
The separation of God’s life and presence from the business of life is coming to an end. The Babylonian style of governance in personal life, family life, business life, and all other facets of life on earth is in a sense self-destructing as the loving fire of God reduces it to ashes.
All life is becoming as one under the one head of Christ Jesus, the King of glory in the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.
The love of God is dismantling the rule of the religious order of the passing church systems, while at the same time raising up the relational reality of the loving kingdom of God in all aspects of life on earth.
THE FAMILY AND COMMUNITY BUSINESS OF KINGDOM LIFE
God’s loving order of family is the basic designed order for all governance in this world. All activity of community and business flows in the order of loving family. As the family is, so is the culture of the nations and the world. The order of the family is the order of the world.
The current disorder and breakdown of the family and the subsequent breaking down of national order and governance is the direct result of the lack of the presence of God ruling in the hearts of individuals, families, business, and all facets of life.
The now reordering of national and world order is the results of the presence of God beginning to rule in the individual lives, families, business, and all facets of life.
The power producing this colossal reordering of the world is Spirit God in His people through Spirit Christ by the Holy Spirit producing love that produces the perfect order of God, the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.
Truly the confident expectation (hope) of the glorious reality of the kingdom of God is THE FINAL MYSTERY OF CHRIST IN YOU, THE HOPE OF GLORY REVEALED AND MANIFESTED ON EARTH AS RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE, AND JOY FLOOD THE EARTH.
LOVE IS THE ULTIMATE POWER TO GLORIFY THE EARTH: FIRST IN THE HEART OF EVERY BELIEVER AND THEN OUT TO THE WORLD.
THE SUPERNATURAL CREATIVE ENDOWMENT OF GOD IN MAN RECREATES THE WORLD INTO GOD’S PATTERN OF HEAVEN IN YOUR HEART AND MINE.
WE BECOME NEW CREATED BEINGS ABIDING IN THE NEW CREATED WORLD THAT IS WITHIN US RELEASING THE LOVE AND POWER OF ALMIGHTY CREATOR GOD TO TRANSFORM THE NATURAL WORLD REALITY INTO THE SAME AS THAT WHICH IS WITHIN US.
GOD’S SUPERNATURAL CREATION CENTER ON EARTH IS IN THE HEART OF MAN.
All things are possible to God in man on earth. The seed that is planted by Spirit God in the heart of man, believed by faith, and watered by prayer of agreement with God will grow by the power of God into the natural world reality.
PRAISE GOD! The kingdom of God is within us and is coming forth in the world. The corrected kingdom order of all things has begun in our day. In the Spirit we can now see and experience the fullness of the kingdom of heaven on earth. As we live by the Spirit and walk in the Spirit, we are a part of the kingdom coming forth on earth.
My personal assignment here in this world is to point the way as a part of the prophetic age of beginning world transformation. Many of you reading this will be on earth to see much more fulfillment of the progressing kingdom of God reality manifesting on earth.
Never despair nor fear as the old world order crumbles in the fire of God and the beauty of the kingdom arises from the ashes before you. Beyond the old and ahead of you is the beautiful lush garden of the full reality of the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.
