Part 6 CHANGING THE WORLD
THE MYSTERY OF CHRIST AND KINGDOM – By Ron McGatlin
ALL IN ONE – ONE IN ALL
All that is, was in God. It emanated and expanded out from God to be all creation. All things continue to emanate and expand from God and become new creation.
All of the portion of creation emanating from God regarding Planet Earth and the heavens around it were ascribed and relegated to a co-op covenant ownership of God and man. Man broke the covenant. God became a man in Christ Jesus, Yeshua to restore the co-op covenant government on earth with man.
The great mystery of Christ and kingdom is that Spirit Christ came at Pentecost to empower those who would receive to cooperate in managing the kingdoms of this world.
God in Christ abiding in all that willingly believe and receive stands in glorious love and power to change the world to the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.
LOVE, GOD’S LOVE IN CHRIST IS CHANGING THE WORLD
Love creates a perfect balance in all creation. Peace and prosperity are the designed order of creation.
Creation’s universal laws, established by God, provide equal and opposite reactions for every unbalancing action. Universal laws of creation are self-regulating and self-acting to restore God’s designed order.
Any act of unlove in creation causes imbalance or disorder in creation. Love automatically responds to alleviate the imbalance and restore creation to its designed order.
A biblical term for acts of unlove is sin or disobedience to God and His order.
God is love. All creation emanates from God and is ordered by love. God’s love in man produces obedience to God and perfect alignment of man with God’s universal laws of order in this world.
Sin or disobedience to God and His way produces disorder that brings chaos and death into this world.
THE GREAT REDEMPTION OF THE WORLD
“For God so loved the WORLD that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the WORLD to condemn the WORLD, but that the WORLD through Him might be saved.” John 3:16.
The huge unlove death blow of imbalance to the world of the sin of Adam was reconciled in the sacrificial offering of the Son of God at the cross. God made a way where there was no way.
The perfect Son of love became a man to be crucified to provide the way for the redemption of man, so that through redeemed mankind the world might be restored to its perfect balance of love: love that produces peace on earth and good will toward man.
The penalty of sin was reconciled at the death of Christ Jesus on the cross. The saving or restoration of mankind and the world is now in process.
“For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.” Romans 5:10.
How is it that we are saved by His life?
THE GREAT RESTORATION OF THE WORLD
Christ Jesus did not stay dead but arose from the grave. He was resurrected and ascended to heaven. Christ then returned at Pentecost to live now on earth in His Body of redeemed believers on earth.
Christ is in us to do the works of saving, healing, delivering, and setting us free now so that He can work through us to save and restore the world. The greater works that Jesus promised is the saving or restoration of this world.
“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. 13 And whatever you ask in My name, that I WILL DO, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask anything in My name, I WILL DO it. 15 “If you love Me, keep My commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— 17 THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but YOU KNOW HIM, for HE DWELLS WITH YOU AND WILL BE IN YOU. 18 I will not leave you orphans; I WILL COME TO YOU. 19 “A little while longer and the world will see Me no more, but you will see Me. Because I live, you will live also. 20 At that day you will know that I AM IN MY FATHER, AND YOU IN ME, AND I IN YOU. John 14:12-20.
The life of Christ now in us with the Holy Spirit is saving our lives now on earth and is restoring the world to the love kingdom of God through redeemed man. All are reconciled at the cross and those who believe are now the carriers of Christ restoring the world to the kingdom of God.
The saving life of God in Christ with the Holy Spirit in us is not about getting us to heaven after we die. It is about restoring the world through us to its original created perfect love balance.
VICTORY IS THE WAY OF THE LORD
Just getting by or escaping in the sin-cursed world is NOT the way of God.
The way of God is the victory of overcoming evil with good, darkness with light, unlove with love.
Fallen man can now be born again a new creation without the sin curse of the fallen world. The born-again child of God can be empowered by the Spirit of God in Christ Jesus with the Holy Spirit of God to defeat the works of the devil, the evil world order, and to replace the evil world order with the restored world order of the love kingdom of God.
Love conquers all and provides for the good of all. The love of God sets mankind free from all of the effects of the sin curse of unlove. Love crosses all lines and neutralizes all prejudice, pride, contention, and covetousness. Love releases lifegiving wisdom and power to rule and reign in this life now on earth as it is in heaven.
KINGDOM IS THE LOVE OF GOD IN US IN THIS WORLD
The mystery of the ages is God in Christ in us by the Holy Spirit bringing forth the GLORY of the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.
“The mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints. 27 To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” Colossians 1:26-27.
In recent decades the mystery that was first revealed to the first century disciples has now been re-revealed to God’s people. The reality of Christ in us to re-establish the way of God on earth is changing God’s people to change the world.
The extraordinary love life of the resurrected glorified Christ Jesus abiding in those who abide in Him is launching a glorious impact of Spirit God into this world.
No longer will the people just try to hang on until they can die and go to heaven. Christ in us is arising to destroy the works of the devil and darkness. The glorious light of the love of Almighty God pouring out to the land is the overcoming victory of those who love not their lives to the death. (Revelation 12:11.)
THE END OF OUR PAST LIFE IS AT HAND IN THIS OUR DAY OF THE LORD!
We are experiencing the glorious reality of the resurrected glorified KING CHRIST JESUS the ONE who is above all things, the ONE through whom and for whom all things were created, now on earth within the MANY SONS OF GOD establishing the KINGDOM OF GOD FROM HEAVEN ON EARTH.
“For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.” Colossians 1:16.
“For it was fitting for Him (Jesus), for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing MANY SONS to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. 11 For both He who [g]sanctifies and those who are being sanctified are all of one, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren, 12 saying: ‘I will declare Your name to My brethren; In the midst of the assembly I will sing praise to You.’” Hebrews 2:10-12.
“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.” 16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs—HEIRS OF GOD AND JOINT HEIRS WITH CHRIST, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together. 18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the GLORY WHICH SHALL BE REVEALED IN US. 19 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the SONS OF GOD.” Romans 8:14-19.
THAT FOR WHICH WE HAVE WAITED HAS COME! SONS ARE BEING REVEALED AS GLORY IS REVEALED IN US.
