2. HEAVEN’S GLORY AND FREEDOM OR BONDAGE AND DEATH ON EARTH? THE CHOICE IS OURS! – Ron McGatlin
1. INTRODUCTION – Ron McGatlin
This word for today could not have been written last year or even last month or even a few weeks ago. I sincerely belive in my heart that this is a message for now and contains possibly the most important word given me in my lifetime to date.
This is a time of pause and shutdown in which you have the time to carefully prayerfully read this article allowing the Holy Spirit to speak the truth from God for you and your life now in the coming new season of God interveining on earth.
Please take the time in your prayer closet in a time of openess to hear more clearly what God is doing now in this world. God is taking us where we have not been to remain in the glory we have just visited in the past and beyond where we have only dreamed about before. This season and the future is of vital importance in the history of God working in this world.
Please read to the end.
Love and Blessings,
2. HEAVEN’S GLORY AND FREEDOM OR BONDAGE AND DEATH ON EARTH? THE CHOICE IS OURS! – Ron McGatlin
THERE IS NO MIDDLE GROUND.
The roaring fire of God has come near. It is at hand, within reach now. The glory fire of both glory and devastation is permeating the atmosphere above us within our reach.
The fullness of all the promises of God for us are now within reach. The heavenly supernatural power and wisdom to transform our lives and the world has now come into the Spirit atmosphere of Planet Earth.
Spirit Lord and King, Christ Jesus, is now near to dissolve the works of sin, sickness, bondage and death in and through all who will fully receive.
The glory of God by His great love is present with all power from heaven to form again or create anew the entire world to the glory of God. (Isaiah 65:17-19).
The powerful presence of God is here to dissolve all that lifts itself against God. The fire of His glory cloud is dropping down to engulf the world and activate His chosen people. (Isaiah 2:11-12).
WE MUST MAKE A CHOICE.
A NON-DECISION IS A CHOICE FOR DEATH’S BONDAGE OF PAIN, LACK, AND WORLDWIDE DARKNESS NOW AND POSSIBLY FOR GENERATIONS TO COME. ALL HUMAN NATURAL ATTEMPTS TO COMBAT THE DARKNESS OF DEATH’S BONDAGE AND TO SAVE OURSELVES WILL FAIL AND WORSEN THE WORLD CONDITIONS.
The descending glory cloud of God above the earth is to be received into our EMPTY vessels by lifting our Spirit arms up like a funnel for the fullness of the living Spirit Christ to fill our being with the brilliant light of His glory and His power, wisdom, and authority to bring heaven’s life into this world. The light of God’s glory can cause the dissolving of the darkness of evil and the kingdom of God to manifest on earth. (Luke 21:25-27).
However, we must be emptied of all that lifts itself within us against the glory of God before we can fully receive the fullness of the glory cloud. The glory is destruction to our past ways and beliefs of religion and secular humanism. The coming of the glory cloud of Christ brings devastating fire to dissolve our past ways of mixture. (Isaiah 2).
Spirit Christ of the throne is now coming in the living glory cloud like lightning to empower the Christ in His Body now on earth. This is the greatest season of God since the birth of Christ Jesus as a babe in a manger, Spirit Christ head of all joining fully with His Body on earth.
THE ENORMITY OF THIS SITUATION CANNOT BE OVERSTATED! It is beyond all imagination. The radicalness and severity of this apocalyptic season is to our natural minds unreasonable, unfathomable, and unspeakable. Only by the Spirit of God can these words be written or spoken much less believed. Only by the empowering of the Spirit can these words be fully received into our spirit mind. And only by the Spirit power of Almighty God can we endure the severe changes of this glorious season.
IS GOD CAUSING THE DEATH AND DEVASTATION?
God’s answer to this question may surprise us because of some of our incomplete or partial understanding of biblical truth. We may need to receive more complete biblical truth by the Holy Spirit to see through to further truth.
Much is being revealed in this age of the kingdom of God that brings together the Body of Christ that has been divided by seeing only one side or the other of the two-edged sword of the word of God. The greater revelation of the kingdom of God brings all truth together under the one major heading of the kingdom of God.
Pray and ask God to open the eyes and ears of our spirits to see and hear clearly the deeper reality of the revelation of the kingdom of God now on earth by Christ Jesus in His people by the Holy Spirit.
Father God, help us to see and hear the fullness of your love that brings peace that is beyond understanding. Open our spirits and minds to the greater kingdom reality of the Gospel of the Kingdom that we may see and hear clearly the two sides of the double-edged sword of your word. Thank you, Father. In the name of Jesus. Amen.
One of the clearest examples of this is found in a very important, timely, and much quoted scripture found in 2 Chronicles 7:14. One of the major questions arising in many minds in this season of pandemic in the world is, “Is this deadly virus from God or not from God?” Let me say up front that the answer to the two parts of this question is a profound YES. But it probably is not as you might think. (Please bear with me for a moment and read on.)
There is sound scriptural basis for both the truth that judgment does come at the hand of God and that God is always love, desires no evil for us and sent Jesus to redeem us. If our spiritual eyes and ears are opened to the gospel of the kingdom, we can see there is truth to both sides of this sword, but it takes the two to make the whole. (Please read on).
Let’s consider both 2 Chronicles 7:14 and the preceding verse 13.
It is clear in verse 13 that God is speaking of when He sends a plague or other deadly disasters among the people. Verse 14 then gives the specific proper response to these disasters that come as strong correction to turn the people.
The Old Covenant people had no problem in seeing this for what it was. The New Testament people are often very confused because Christ Jesus has paid the price for all sin. So why then would God in any way send disasters upon the people? The reasoning of the people is that God would not send this, so it has to be the devil sending it. And that is total truth as well. Jesus said the devil comes only to steal, kill, and destroy. Jesus also confirmed that God loves the people and that He (Jesus) loves us and that we should love God and one another.
So what is the final kingdom answer?
Simply stated, in this time after the cross and resurrection, all disaster and evil misfortune in the world is caused by MAN NOT WALKING IN THE NEW COVENANT OF CHRIST JESUS NOW IN THIS LIFE.
The Old Covenant was a covenant of law. The New Covenant is a covenant of love relationship.
There is little or no difference in this life on earth for either an Old Covenant person in the past or a New Covenant person today who does not walk in the covenants established by God. In both the old and the new, it was never okay to ignore or neglect the covenant of God or to try to partially or occasionally walk in covenant with God.
God made it clear that the soul that sins shall die. Sickness and disease are a part of the curse of death. Death, sickness, and all deadly disaster in this world are part of the original fall of Adam and the broken covenant of God by Adam in the Garden. (Genesis 2:15-17).
More is involved and at stake here than the well-being of mankind. The whole earth with all of its perfectly balanced designed system are disrupted by the failure of mankind to walk in the covenant and covenant purposes of God.
In the Garden of Eden it was NOT God who initiated the release of the broken covenant and the subsequent disorder of death, disease, and disaster upon the world. The breaking of covenant by Adam released the devil and deadly disorder upon the land and all mankind.
THE NEW COVENANT
God provided the New Covenant by Himself for mankind in sending His only begotten son to make void the old broken covenant and establish the new for the purpose of restoring the kingdom of God on earth back to the rule of God through covenant with mankind in Christ Jesus our kingdom redeemer.
Jesus incarnate taught and demonstrated the new kingdom covenant and then paid the price on the cross to redeem the kingdom on earth. The kingdom in heaven was never lost and now the way is prepared for the kingdom of God in heaven to come to earth in mankind walking in covenant with God through Christ Jesus.
The New Covenant involves the death of the old and the coming of the new. The cross was the death of the old and the resurrection was the coming of the new. The coming of the King to fully restore the kingdom of heaven on earth. After His ascension to heaven, Christ Jesus returned in the Holy Ghost, Holy Spirit, to indwell believers to carry out and complete the establishment of the kingdom of heaven ruling on earth in and through His people.
HERE IS THE DETAIL REASON FOR THE DEVASTATION ON EARTH AT THIS TIME
We have believed a lie from the devil, and that has caused us to fail to fully walk in the New Covenant of love relationship with God. All cunningly devised lies need some truth to make the lie palatable to the minds of the people. The Christian religion in general has been duped by the enemy to reproduce teachings that hide the real truth of walking in the New Covenant.
Perhaps the biggest and most deadly deception is that the kingdom of God reality is not available in this world until Jesus BODILY returns someday to THEN establish His kingdom. Different versions of this lie are propagated in different streams of religion. Some are willing to admit that the kingdom is within but deny that it is here in us to be established now in this world.
The kingdom of God has been available to be fully established on earth since Pentecost when Christ Jesus returned in the Holy Spirit to do the works of establishing the kingdom in His BODY of believers, the “many sons of glory.” (Hebrews 2:10-11).
The Lord and His first century disciples proclaimed the kingdom at hand and demonstrated its power and provisions. The disciples, after the return of Christ in the Holy Spirit, continued to “turn the world upside down” which was really right side up kingdom-wise. (Acts 17:6).
God has sought through two millennia and now the beginning of the third millennia since that time to bring the people of the world into walking in the New Covenant of Christ Jesus.
The New Covenant involves God actually abiding in and with His people in this world in Christ Jesus by the Holy Ghost, Holy Spirit. God in Christ in us is to empower and guide us in bringing forth the kingdom of heaven on earth. Christ in you is the hope (positive expectation) of Glory, the glory of the kingdom on earth. (Colossians 1:27).
THE SHUTDOWN AND COMING EVENTS
The shutdown and other coming apocalyptic and cataclysmic events are occurring to turn the people of the world toward walking the true covenant with God and away from the false covenant lifestyles of worshiping themselves and the works of their hands instead of becoming the temple of God, vessels suitable for Christ Jesus and the Father to abide by the Holy Spirit.
So is devil doing this? Yes. He is doing it because he can. Why can he do this? Because man is not walking in covenant with God through Christ by the Holy Spirit.
Is God allowing the deadly devastation? Actually God is moving as fast as He can to stop the evil death and disasters and establish the kingdom of righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit on earth.
So is this not really God’s fault or the devils fault but the failure of man to walk in the covenant of pure holy love relationship with God? Yes, you got it.
But now what do we do?
Believe the one that God has sent to be in you, Christ Jesus. (John 6:28-29). Fall in love with God in you.
It is time to do what is written in: 2 Chronicles 7:13-14: When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence (plagues) among My people, 14 if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
Romans 8:13-15: For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. 14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. 15 For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba,[e] Father.”
Walk in the Spirit; walk in the covenant of Christ in you by the Holy Spirit.
Love never fails and His kingdom never ends.
