WHAT NOW? YOUR LIFE NOW! – By Ron McGatlin
Possibly the most intense season of change since the first century is now upon us.
What does it all mean to us personally and collectively as a nation and the world?
It now appears that most likely every person, family, tribe, and nation of the world will be seriously affected one way or another by life changing events and circumstances in the decade of the 2020s.
At the time of this writing, this next year of 2021 looks to be one of the most significant years of abrupt change even beyond 2020.
There is always change in life. However, there are seasons of pivotal world-changing, hinge-pin events that altar the course of life in this world now and forever. This decade is one of those seasons.
THIS EVENTFUL SEASON IN A NUT SHELL
The intent of this writing is to focus only on what it means to each of us who are alive in this season without getting into the world and biblical history leading up to this season.
Suffice to say that everything that has gone before has been a part of the tensions and synergies of God and mankind moving toward an ultimate goal that is coming into more clear focus in this season.
Further, let us understand that all that mankind has known and experienced through all of the seasons since the Garden of Eden, including the church age, was not the fullness of God’s design for Planet Earth and mankind.
The best and highest efforts of mankind with all of our religions, philosophies, mandates, governments, scientific genius, terrestrial and celestial studies, and research of all kinds have all failed to accomplish our quest for the fullness of life on earth.
Mankind worldwide is at this time in a desperate condition of separation and division caused by a multiplicity of different views, understandings, beliefs, evaluations, values, methods, ways, and styles of life in this world. The vast differences feed into the prejudices, desires, drives, and motivations of life’s activities among the people of the world.
So, what is different about today, about this season, and specifically this decade?
The delicious “nut” inside the “nut shell” of this season is the “perfect pearl.” Or said another way, it is the revelation of the manifesting of Christ Jesus on earth as Head of His Body.
It involves the scales coming of the spiritual eyes of the people of God. It is blind eyes and deaf ears being opened to see and hear in the Spirit realm. It is the coverings being removed from the greater and deeper truth of the written word and the true gospel of the kingdom of God being revealed.
The “pearl of great price” or the “treasure hidden in field” being found is the reality of Christ Jesus, the King of this world in His Body of prepared sons and daughters on earth bringing forth the greater fullness of His kingdom from heaven. (Matthew 13:44-46). It is discovering the revelation of Christ Jesus in His Body on earth by the Holy Spirit.
It is the actual manifest reality of the LIFE of Christ Jesus, Lord and King, flowing into and through the hearts and lives of the people of God to change the world.
SPIRIT GOD SURGING HIS LIFE INTO HIS PEOPLE
The LIFE of God in Christ is the LIGHT and LOVE of God flowing tangibly and forcefully into and through the people of God now on earth.
The kingdom of God is the LIGHT and LOVE of God in His people flowing into the world, changing the world into the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.
The LIGHT and LOVE of GOD destroys all darkness and wipes away all evil. There is no darkness that can remain in the pure light of God. There is no demon or demonized person that can stand in the love of God. No lie or sickness or death can stand in the presence of the pure holy love and light of God.
The kingdom of God is not what we eat or drink or anything that we do or don’t do; it is the surging substance of glorious light and unending everlasting love of God flowing the LIFE of God in and through us.
NO FEAR IN LOVE AND NO DARKNESS IN LIGHT
There is no fear of darkness or evil of any kind in the light and love of God in man. We no longer need to hide from darkness and evil. There is no need to withdraw and hide ourselves in our buildings with stained glass windows. No longer a need to wait till a prayer meeting to pray. Communion with God is constant. His life is always one with us and in us.
Christ in us is free to fully enter into all arenas of the world carrying His life of the all-powerful love and light of God into every aspect of life in the world. The glory power of light and love of God within us overpowers the darkness and changes the world around us. We are the light of the world when Christ is shining through us.
There is no longer secular and holy; all aspects of life are to be made holy by the light and love of God in His people. Evil darkness must flee and relinquish its territory back to the rightful owner and King of all, Christ Jesus ruling and reigning in His Body becomes His Bride on earth.
All things are possible to King Jesus in His redeemed purified holy people on earth.
ALL HAIL KING JESUS!
The One who is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the ending through whom and for whom all things were created and continue to exist.
“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.” Revelation 1:8.
“He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or [e]principalities or [f]powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.
18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence. 19 For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, 20 and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.” Colossians 1:15-20.
