1. A FRESH NEW SEASON OF KINGDOM REALITY – By Ron McGatlin
I write to each of you personally and corporately as a brother to my brothers and sisters in the Lord and as a seasoned prophetic kingdom witness. My heart’s desire is to share as much as possible what God has given me over a lifetime of advancing His kingdom on earth.
There is a great abundance our Lord has for each of you in this vital and critical season of the beginning of the rest of your life and the advancing of the true kingdom of God here on earth.
There is great courage and great restraint in my heart as these words flow from the heart of Christ Jesus by Spirit God as joy of His love floods my being in response to the affection of His love that we all share.
His great desire for you is that you find the full abundance of Spirit life fulfillment of His life in you being and doing all that God has planned for you from the beginning. The most productive years of your life are probably just ahead of you. You may soon feel that all of your life experiences before this season were only preparation for the fullness of His purpose and purposes that you are now entering.
The astonishing recognition is that most likely much, if not most, of your education and training experience has been primarily what not to do and how not to be a true son or daughter of God. Discovering this leads to a new perspective and gratefulness to God for the wisdom of all those things that fit under the category of, “I’ll never do or be that again.” Or, “How could I have really thought and believed that way?” Wisdom only comes from God. Our experiences can only become wisdom as God shines His light on them by His Spirit.
Many hundreds of hours and days of your life have been invested in learning academics. A part of the definition of “academic” is “having no practical or useful significance.”
As the wisdom and knowledge of the mind of Christ in us by the fullness of the infilling of the Holy Spirit opens and enlightens the written word of God to us, the deeper reality of the ways and purposes of real life is further revealed in us. Thus we find the true purpose and calling of God for mankind in general and for our own personal lives.
Our many years of academics and religious study and effort along with the well-intended but at best incomplete guidance of family and cultural environment has probably lacked the full reality of the life and truth of Christ in us by the Holy Spirit. This caused some degree of failure in the establishing of the rule of the LOVE of God in us and through to bring forth the way of God, the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.
The great failure of world culture is directly traceable to the lack of the reality of mankind connecting into Spirit God through Christ Jesus. Failure comes from man not receiving the revealing of the truth of the written word of God as alive and functioning in all of our learning and experiencing knowledge, wisdom, and understanding. We (mankind and individually) failed to receive fully the truth and reality of the pure LOVE of God, bringing the wisdom and power of God to rule and align Planet Earth and all that is on it to the ways of God from heaven.
We can only imagine what life on earth would be like, if mankind had invested the many formative hours and years of our lives seeking the kingdom of God in the word of God by the Spirit of God. All the needed practical knowledge of all areas of life would have come to us as well as the deep reality of the love, wisdom, and power of God to create on earth the ways of God as it is in heaven. The world would be, as it will be, sooner than you think, filled with the righteousness, peace, and joy of the kingdom of God.
Individually we can now turn to the word of God by the Spirit of God and begin to enter fully into the kingdom of God within ourselves. Our lives can be, by Christ in us and us in Christ, experiencing the reality of the LOVE of God manifesting the righteousness, peace, and joy of God in the Holy Spirit. Romans 14:17 says, “For the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.” Then from within us the reality of the kingdom of God will flow out to the world around us. Thus the kingdom of God grows into place like yeast in dough changes the whole loaf.
This has actually begun to take place in our world in recent decades. A deep distinction and division is taking place as a result of the manifestation of the inner kingdom of God coming forth in the world.
TWO OPPOSING “KINGDOMS”
There are only two major sources of life principles that can rule in and through mankind. The only ultimate force and source of life is the kingdom of God from heaven, the kingdom of light, the kingdom of God.
The opposing kingdom is known as the kingdom of darkness. However, it is not really a kingdom at all but rather a principality of darkness. Darkness is only the absence of the light. The principality rules everywhere and in everyone in whom the light and love of God does not yet abide.
The current manifesting of the kingdom of God reality in pure-hearted kingdom seekers is reaching into all facets of life and moving into many areas of life that have been traditionally left to the rule of the principality of darkness. They were left in darkness because the church systems that developed from the invasion of darkness mingling among the religious doctrines caused an extensive retreat of the things of God into seclusion within church walls and in our compartmentalized lives.
The devil, the prince of the “kingdom of darkness,” gladly allowed and encouraged the hope of heaven someday to become the primary focus of the church systems. The devil knows he cannot capture heaven. However, his entire focus is reigning on earth by defeating the people of God and preventing the true King Christ Jesus from ruling on this earth through His people.
The devil’s only tool is deception and diversion in the hearts and minds of mankind. God had given the reigns of this world to mankind in Adam and fully redeemed it in Christ Jesus, the last Adam. Whosoever reigns in the hearts of men is released by mankind to rule in the earth.
The revelation and manifestation of the kingdom of God reality working now in this world in His kingdom people is the reason for the great increase of conflict and division in this world. The great offensive of wildly insane activity of evil darkness is an all-out attempt to stop the advancing of the kingdom of God on earth.
The resistance has been there all along, but only since the people of God have begun to leave the confines of being locked up in a church building has the enemy been rising up in a panic of insane wildness and fear. His only hope is to kill or destroy the people and works of Christ Jesus and stop His kingdom from coming forth on earth.
As mankind leaves the religious separation from the affairs of this world and begins to affect the governance and operations of the world functions, the kingdom of God begins to enter its proper place of bringing the order of God from heaven to earth.
Great enemy strongholds exist in education, media, entertainment, religion, business, family, and every influence of mankind. As the true love and light of the kingdom of God advances in the hearts of the people, the darkness is coming down. This is the great conflict and the root of all division in this world today. It is not just democratic verses republican or black against white or any other human differences. It is an all-out battle for the hearts and souls of man to bring forth either the kingdom of God or the false kingdom of darkness on earth.
The False Kingdom of Human Good and Evil
Both kingdoms say they have the same goal in mind. Both say they are seeking peace on earth and good for everyone bringing equality and provision to all. The political wars are only front line offenses of the two kingdoms. God is not republican or democrat and neither is the kingdom of God.
The so-called New World Order or One World Government is a humanistic false kingdom replacement or counterfeit kingdom that mimics the real kingdom of God. The professed goal is the peace and prosperity of all mankind on earth.
The True Kingdom of God
The true kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven is the only one world government that will truly prosper the world and all that is in it. The big difference in the two opposing kingdoms is that:
- The humanistic one world order works by laws and forced compliance to the manmade world laws and enforced by a one world police or army authority.
- The kingdom of God works by the LOVE of God within the hearts of the people by the Spirit of Christ in the Holy Spirit. Direct intimate oneness of God gives direction and empowerment directly from God into every person bringing perfect alignment with the perfect way of life in every person. This causes all things spiritual and natural in the entire planet to work together in perfect righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. All the law and every word of God is fulfilled in the reality of perfect love in the people of God. There is perfect freedom in the kingdom of God and the whole world is brought into the perfect order of God on earth as it is in heaven.
All other kingdoms must come down and become a part of the one true God of heaven and earth. All philosophies of tyranny, capitalism, socialism, communism, humanistic ideologies, religious ideologies, religious systems, and anything that lifts itself against the one true God will be brought down. All the works of Babylonian culture will be reduced to smoke and ashes as the pride and loftiness of man that resist the pure love of God is removed from this world.
God loves every person, and none need perish. The door is fully open for all who will, to come to Christ Jesus and enter into the reality of the kingdom of God that has no end. The kingdom of God is righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.
MY DEAR BROTHERS AND SISTERS, ALL THAT IS WRITTEN HERE AND MUCH MORE IS CLEARLY PRESENTED IN THE BIBLE, THE WRITTEN AND LIVING WORD OF GOD. OUR IGNORANCE OF IT IS ONLY DUE TO OUR NEGLET AND LACK OF TRUSTING THE SPIRIT OF GOD TO REVEAL HIS WORD TO US. ALSO WHAT IS WRITTEN HERE AND MUCH MORE ALONG WITH RELATING SCRIPTURE IS AVAILABLE FREE OF CHARGE IN MY BOOKS AND ARTICLES STORED ON THE OPENHEAVEN.COM WEBSITE.
Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Matthew 6:10.
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Matthew 6:33.
