THE HOLY SPIRIT KINGDOM OUTPOURING – Ron McGatlin
Barbara and I were blessed to be a part of the Holy Spirit REVIVAL outpouring of the 1990s. It was powerful and filled with supernatural manifestations. Miracles, healing, deliverance, holy laughter, entire groups falling to the floor as if mowed down by machine guns, Spirit intoxication affectionately called “drunk in the Spirit” were just some of the powerful happenings.
Marriages were supernaturally healed on the spot. Powerful ministries to the world were supernaturally planted in people who had striven for decades with little or no results. Healings and deliverances were abundant and phenomenal. We could go on writing about the many more awesome supernatural manifestations and glorious works of changed lives.
However, as awesome as it was, this was only a Holy Spirit REVIVAL outpouring. It was not a Holy Spirit KINGDOM outpouring. The Holy Spirit outpouring of the 2020s is a Holy Spirit KINGDOM outpouring.
HOW DOES A KINGDOM HOLY SPIRIT OUTPOURING DIFFER FROM A REVIVAL HOLY SPIRIT OUTPOURING? AREN’T BOTH AN OUTPOURING OF THE SAME HOLY SPIRIT UPON MANKIND?
I am so glad you asked that question. To understand the differences, we need to have God’s perspective as to what He is doing at the time. Why is He pouring Himself out in the Holy Spirit upon the people?
Over the past 500 years, there has been a progression from religion toward spiritual personal relationship with God. The changes in the Holy Spirit outpouring of the 1990s to the 2020s are due to the accelerated major shift from church order to kingdom order in the works of God with man.
The Holy Spirit outpourings in the 1900s were the return of Holy Spirit in power coming forth in and on mankind. Believers began again to be empowered outside the lines of clerical systems of human authority and hierarchal order of men ruling over the people. In approximately the first quarter of the 1900s, Holy Spirit restored the baptism in the Holy Spirit to the church, and by the mid part of the century the world was being impressed with the authority and power of the fullness of the Holy Spirit. This led to great healing and deliverance revivals that poured out the Spirit of God in power.
In the last quarter of the century, the kingdom of God – the gospel of the kingdom – was beginning to be revealed along with the miracle revivals and outpourings and the love of the Father.
THE FIRST DIFFERENCE IN THE 2020S OUTPOURINGS IS PURITY
During all the revival Holy Spirit outpourings, there was not the full reality of the kingdom in the hearts of the people. God poured out His Holy Spirit on FLESH. There was no true kingdom of God people to receive the fresh move of God.
Revival outpourings were sent by God to take us toward the kingdom of God. Holy Spirit was poured out for us to see the real power of God and desire to be purified to carry it into the kingdom of God age.
Therefore, the Holy Spirit revival outpourings had fleshly impurities underneath the visible works of God. The power and love of the Spirit revival outpourings came to purify the people who had to become purified kingdom of God people to receive the revelation of the reality of the kingdom of God in His people coming forth into the world.
Through brokenness of severe and tragic life situations and true kingdom of God love, there is true humility and pure holy love guiding all that is done and said in the coming kingdom Holy Spirit outpourings in the 2020s.
The baptism of the Holy Spirit and fire is further cleansing and purifying the people of God and changing the scope of the Holy Spirit outpouring on a worldwide scale.
THE SECOND DIFFERENCE IS SCOPE
In the same cities where great outpourings were taking place, most of the people including Christians did not even know about the moves of God. The people in many Christian religious denominations never heard a word about the Holy Spirit outpourings. And some who did, only heard negative critical things about the doctrinal differences or some other issue.
The 1990s outpouring was church system operated and not experienced by some denominational streams. Only by excited believers writing or talking to others outside the church could the good news of the Holy Spirit outpouring be spread.
The religious church systems will not be the leaders of the 2020s kingdom Holy Spirit outpourings as others have been. The religious church is being shut down and there exists today a great hunger in the people for the reality of the kingdom of God.
The scope of the coming outpouring is LIFE in all of its facets and not religious church systems. Gatherings relating to family, business, education, government and worship with praise gatherings are the major places of kingdom Holy Spirit outpourings.
THE THIRD DIFFERENCE IS THE GOAL
Even the greatest revival outpourings of the 1900s and earlier all maintain the goal as making it to heaven or hanging on till Jesus comes to establish His kingdom on earth.
Others who are more progressive, focused on a good life of wealth rather than being truly kingdom of God builders on earth at any cost, or just getting everybody saved to go to heaven with no understanding that the kingdom of God is within us because the King, Christ Jesus, is being formed in us by the Holy Spirit.
The difference is that the 2020s Holy Spirit outpourings are for the purpose of establishing the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. The goal is the kingdom.
THE FORTH DIFFERENCE IS PERSONAL INTIMATE LOVE RELATIONSHIP
In the 2020s and beyond kingdom Holy Spirit outpourings will consist of every child of God on earth falling in love with God in a pure holy love relationship. All other affections or love relationships are to be guided and ruled by the presence of the love of God through constant personal oneness with God Almighty.
In the 1900s, the love of Father God toward His people was recognized, but the intimate love living relationship with God and His kingdom was mostly unseen. Duty, commitment, responsibility and obedience were more emphasized.
THE FIFTH DIFFERENCE IS KINGDOM CULTURE
Holy Spirit establishes outpouring in every cultural situation of life worldwide without fear or concern of the opposing darkness. God and His kingdom become the influence and model for the culture of the land. There is room for diversity to fit together in harmony in the kingdom culture.
THE SIXTH DIFFERENCE IS PEACE AND JOY IN THE LACK OF COMPETITION
In the 1900s, competition still played a part within the internal hierarchy leadership of revival outpouring ministries and structures. It was also still present between some portion of the major localized movements and structures.
In the 2020s kingdom outpourings, there will be no competition among any parts of the Holy Spirit outpourings upon the people of God across the world. The love of God flowing in and through the people removes all fear and pride in the hearts and lives of the people abolishing all temptation for competition.
Even through the worldwide tribulation of severe cleansing judgments, the total rest of spirit and soul in the love and supernatural provision of God will guard the hearts of his people with full inner peace and outworking of the joy of the Lord.
THE SEVENTH DIFFERENCE IS GREATER POWER AND WISDOM
In the 1900s, power was often exercised without wisdom, especially in the great excitement of the charismatic movement people often moved without due consideration to lay hands and pray for anyone or anything, for anything without wisdom or clear leading of God. It was often a kind of shotgun or scatter gun blast of releasing spiritual power that would hit some people just right but at the same time wound others needlessly.
At other times a person or group would receive a fresh understanding of one part of the abundantly flowing revelation such as instantaneous deliverance or inner healing. They would then attempt to apply it to all people without the wisdom of hearing from God about the specific situation or needs.
In the 2020s kingdom Holy Spirit outpouring, the intimate love relationship with God provides connection with the ultimate wisdom of God and specific instruction for each and every situation of life, work, and ministry.
WELCOME TO THE GREAT KINGDOM HOLY SPIRIT OUTPOURING OF THE NEW ERA OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN COMING FORTH ON EARTH!

I don’t know Pastor Kent Christmas. We’ve not met. However, while I was behind stage meeting with some participants and leaders of The Return event, doing interviews and discussing another prayer event coming soon, I had briefly observed Kent sitting alone at the time. I didn’t approach him because I felt that the Lord was speaking to him. When he took the podium later, I had no doubt that he had heard from God. What the Lord said through him is what I believe to be a prophetic word to the church and the world. I believe something shifted in the Washington DC atmosphere in this moment. May it also affect the entire nation and the church of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Over the past century the true Body of Christ has been brought into a Holy Spirit-led awakening to the reality of the kingdom of God coming forth in the hearts and lives of the people of God. For the first time since the first century the gospel of the kingdom is again feeding the love and power of God into the kingdom people of God on a broad scale. The old lukewarm religion of the church systems that has blinded the minds of the people to the reality of the kingdom of Christ in His people is coming down and falling away. The pure holy born again, Spirit filled, people who love not their lives to the death are NOW MADE ALIVE IN CHRIST JESUS AS CHRIST JESUS, LORD AND KING NOW LIVES IN US TO ESTABLISH HIS KINGDOM, THE KINGDOM OF GOD ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN.
“I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.” (Matthew 3:11) Baptism with the Holy Spirit produces the power of God and manifests His gifts and fruit in us. But, in considering the baptism of the Holy Spirit and fire, I want to focus on the fire part of that Scripture in this teaching.
To understand the fire more completely, we must look at the infilling of the Holy Spirit in the Upper Room.
