1, FROM CHRISTIANITY TO KINGDOM REALITY – By Ron McGatlin
As I come to the final years of my lifetime on earth and reflect on the marvelous works of God in moving my life and many others from a distant dark place to the glorious light of His kingdom reality, I am drawn to pour out without reservation to seek to finish my part in this adventure of life.
The greatest hope reality of all time in the history of life on Planet Earth is NOW opening up to God’s chosen people. Our finite human minds cannot grasp the magnitude of Spirit reality taking place now on earth. The roaring fire of God, the source of all creation in Christ Jesus, Yeshua Messiah is now come near to earth. A full invasion of the roaring fire of God is imminent as the throne of heaven is made manifest by Christ Jesus in His Holy Bride on earth. This is the so called “second coming” (manifestation) of the Lord as the fire of God encompasses the earth. Spirit God, Spirit Christ fully manifesting on earth.
The mighty roaring fire of God will roll across the earth as a flood of fire purifying the land, the very elements of the earth shall be cleansed leaving only the “jewels of God” – His chosen purified Sons among the ashes of all that had lifted itself against God. The seed of the Garden of Eden shall be replanted in the earth as the kingdom of God in the Sons of God fills the earth with the beauties of holiness. “’They shall be Mine,’ says the Lord of hosts, ‘On the day that I make them My jewels. And I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him.’” Malachi 3:17. (Isaiah 61:1-11).
The Final Days of Preparation
The beginning of the end of the world’s religious systems and secular godless systems is in process. One faction will destroy another as strife is inflamed between one another.
Most if not all of these passing systems have some parts or portions that are of God. Those portions that are of God will be purified and brought back together in the kingdom of God reality on earth. The remaining parts that are not of God will be dissolved and none of the godless systems shall remain. (Isaiah 2:1-22.)
THE TRUE KINGDOM OF GOD IS THE ONE AND ONLY TRUE WORLD SYSTEM OF LIFE AND GOVERNANCE OF EARTH. All created natural and spiritual systems are subsystems of the one kingdom of God.
The kingdom of God cannot be contained. Even the biggest and greatest religious or secular system cannot contain the kingdom of God. However, all creation is contained in the kingdom of God.
The Christian Religion
After over half a century of involvement in a number of different streams of the Christian religious system, I am more familiar with its strengths and weaknesses (godly and ungodly portions) than the other major religious systems. The Christian teachings indeed present a portion of kingdom truth. Yet, by no means is the gospel of the kingdom of God either fully taught or experienced in the major modern Christian religious systems.
I am personally very thankful for the personal salvation experience of being introduced to the reality of Christ Jesus. I am also grateful for the introduction into the great riches of the Bible in the Christian religion. There is a massive process of revelation that has greatly affected portions of the worldwide masses of people that are called Christian. However, the lack of the one unifying reality of the kingdom of God yet eludes much, if not most, of the various religious streams that function under the major heading of Christian.
Many good and very sincere Christians wonder why so many continue to experience episodes of lust, envy, and strife or addictive characteristics with mind-numbing substances and behaviors. Even some of the most popular Christian leaders in churches, ministries, politics, and business are sometimes entrapped in devastating sexual activities and habits.
Many, if not most, ordinary people who call themselves Christians and relate at some level to one of the many religious church systems will succumb to immorality, greed, addictions, depression, despair, guilt, or one or more of the many other damaging conditions that are prevalent among the people.
Usually they believe these things are wrong and ungodly but seem to lack the inner power to get free from them. They desire to walk in freedom but simply do not possess the ability or power to overcome their desires and needs. They long for the victory of peace and purity in their lives.
False Freedom Attempts
Secular humanism, communism, intellectualism, democracy, Islam, and other governmental, philosophical, and ideological systems are all attempts to replace Spirit God and His kingdom ruling and reigning on earth. Manmade governmental systems deny the validity and veracity of the one true God to rule on earth. God is at best tolerated by manmade systems and often resisted with a vengeance. For the most part some degree of tolerance is present in these systems until the Christian group begins to discover the real kingdom of God.
Christianity often seeks to make friends with the ideological systems and avoids having anything to do with the real kingdom of God so as to not be a threat to the manmade governmental systems. This creates a powerless church system that has little or no ability to accomplish the mandate of God to produce the reality of the kingdom of God on earth. The powerless church system makes room for the powers of darkness to invade the Christian churches with false teachings and doctrines of demons and inflect spiritual blindness and other bondages upon the people.
My life in the world has been a transitional adventure from a heritage of mostly wildness apart from God and then into and through the Christian church systems and beyond that to the God-ordained discovery and proclamation of the reality of the kingdom of God coming forth on earth.
The full restoration of God’s kingdom is manifesting from heaven in the hearts of His people on earth. The kingdom of God rule and order flows out from them to rule and order the entire world with the LOVE of God.
This is the core and foundation of the marvelous and glorious message of Christ Jesus, Yeshua Messiah. The great all-inclusive Gospel of the Kingdom that Christ Jesus brought and is bringing to Planet Earth is the full and complete answer to ALL of the world’s problems and needs.
Complete and total freedom for all of mankind and all that is on the earth begins and is established in and by the LOVE of God in the glorious reality of His kingdom rule on earth as it is in heaven.
Freedom is the unrestrained and unhindered ability of all creation to be and do all that God has designed each part to be and do.
Christ Jesus and His gospel of the kingdom is the cornerstone of all life and wisdom for the perfect order of all creation. The core substance of Christ Jesus and the gospel of the kingdom of God rule and order of life is LOVE – the pure holy love of God flowing from God by His Holy Spirit in and through His people.
All governance on earth must be perfectly ordered in alignment with and under the rule and order of Almighty, All-knowing God. The kingdom of God is righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. The perfect love of God contains the kingdom of God rule of righteousness, peace, and joy of the perfect order of all creation fitting together all things in perfect harmony. (Romans 14:17).
The culmination of purpose of my life has been and is to seek first the full reality of the kingdom of God and His righteousness and to proclaim it to a desperately hungry and needy world. A world that is starving to death for the reality of the kingdom of God flowing through His love to reorder the world and fulfill the work and word of Christ Jesus our Lord and King.
As long as there is breath in me, my heart’s desire is to love with the love of God all who He sends my way and to be a kingdom blessing to all who have ears to hear the written or spoken word of the kingdom of God reality in this life.
“Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added to you.” – Jesus.
Much love and blessings,
BEING LED AND EMPOWERED BY SPIRIT GOD
By Ron McGatlin
You may be one of God’s people who have mostly ignored or carefully avoided personal connection with the previous Pentecostal and Charismatic moves of the Spirit of God in past decades. In light of the kingdom of God age emerging on earth, you may be wondering at some point if there may be more to the gifts and workings of the Holy Spirit than you were taught by your church system.
God has good news for you! It is not too late for you to step into a greater living way of life in the Spirit of God.
“Oh,” you say, “I don’t think that I want or need that crazy stuff that I have heard about. Besides we don’t believe like that in my church.”
Well, what you may have heard is probably not the whole reality of the greatest life-changing empowering of the all-consuming flood of the pure holy LOVE of God pouring His life into you.
Many Christians focus on the power, supernatural gifts, and manifestations of the Holy Spirit. They usually either greatly despise them or seek after them heartily. However, the truly greatest thing about the baptism and fullness of the Holy Spirit is the reality of submersion and saturation in a spiritual ocean of LOVE. (Matthew 13, 3:11, 22:37-40) (Romans 5:5).
“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. 8 He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. 9 In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. 10 In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12 No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us. 13 By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit.” 1 John 4:7-13.
The love of God overtakes us and changes everything about us. Our motives and desires become His motives and desires. Our thoughts, speech, and actions become that of Christ Jesus and align perfectly with our Father in heaven. Our once prideful, self-focused, religious or secular hearts are broken in His pure love. Life is no longer about us but about the One who pours His love into us. Our hearts ache with love for Him and for those who He loves.
NEW ENTRANCE INTO THE SPIRIT REALM
Before us appears the grandeur of His glorious kingdom reality. All the false world around us can no longer contain us but is thrown off from around us. Our spiritual eyes are opened to the magnificence of the King and His kingdom. Our spiritual ears are opened to hear His loving guiding voice always with us in all situations of life in this world.
“However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. 7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God [c]ordained before the ages for our glory, 8 which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
9 But as it is written:
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”
10 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. 11 For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.” 1Corinthians 2:6-12.
Our Bible becomes the living word as Spirit God opens our understanding to deeper mysteries that we could not see there before. Hidden mysteries of fathomless Spirit wisdom and understanding from the ageless God are uncovered and revealed to us by the Spirit.
Power to interact and alter creation is entrusted to us as we faithfully follow God’s lead in all that we do. Our words will reflect His thoughts and desires so that we only say and do what He is doing and saying. All things are possible to us who believe.
Yes, miracles and powerful works may quietly happen around us. Yes, there may be supernatural manifestations of healing, deliverances, provision, and anything God wants to do through us, with us, and for us.
And for certain there will be persecutions and violence against us from the powers of the enemy in this world. But only until our work of establishing the kingdom of God in us and the earth around is completed. Yet persecution will not take us out or cut us down. Actually it will not come near the inner reality of our lives where we dwell with God. (Mathew 510) (Psalm 91:7-10).
To endure this season we need the fullness of the Spirit.
The world that has been filled with evil mixture will not continue to exist. The evil world and the reality of God and His invading kingdom reality will not continue to exist together on earth. The light of the kingdom of God will obliterate evil darkness.
To survive and prosper as children of God in the age we are now entering, we MUST become fully baptized and saturated in the Spirit of God by the Spirit of Christ in us by the Holy Spirit.
Fully led by the Spirit, we will seek the kingdom of God FIRST above all else and become His empowered agents bringing forth the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.
CLEAR OUT HINDRANCES
Consider stopping or removing whatever is in the way to your investing yourself into seeking the fullness of Spirit God and His kingdom first, before all else on earth.
God and His kingdom are not to be a part of your life.
Your life is to be a part of the kingdom of God on earth.
The greatest joy and most fulfilling life on earth is a life fully connected in intimate love relationship with God through Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit.
“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” Matthew 6:33.
