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.
SEEK FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD By Ron McGatlin
How can we rearrange our priorities of life to seek first the kingdom of God ‘IF WE DON’T REALLY KNOW WHAT THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AND WHAT IT IS NOT? How will we know what and where to look? And how will we know if or when we find it?
Jesus gave us a big clue about the kingdom of God when he added the words “His righteousness” to this verse. “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” Matthew 6:33.
God’s righteousness is not our own righteousness. The kingdom of God involves God’s righteousness in us. Jesus also said to His disciples that the kingdom of God was within us. The kingdom of God involves His righteousness within us. In Romans 14:17 Paul spoke of the kingdom of God as righteousness, peace, and joy IN THE HOLY SPIRIT.
The kingdom of God is not something we do or don’t do; it is in the Holy Spirit within us. It is the life of God in Christ within us by the Holy Spirit. God’s LOVE and LIGHT is the substance of the LIFE of Spirit God literally flowing into us and through us to rule in the world. Without the Holy Spirit there is no kingdom of God on earth.
Without the fullness of the Holy Spirit operating in our hearts and lives we cannot even see the kingdom much less begin to walk in it and bring it forth on earth. Natural man must be born again of the Spirit to even see the kingdom of God. (John 3, 5-8).
Christ, the true King of this world is now in this world by the Holy Spirit of God in His Body of believers on earth. (1 Corinthians, 3:16-17, Colossians 1:27, 2 Corinthians 6:16).
This pure holy revelation coming forth in the people of God in this decade is the source of the unprecedented change taking place now in our world. The darkness is relentlessly striving to stop or at least slow down the LIGHT and LOVE of God from redeeming the kingdoms of this world to their rightful “King of kings and Lord of lords,” Christ Jesus.
THIS SEASON IS NOW THE FOCAL POINT OF THE CULMINATION OF ALL THE DIFFERENCES OF ALL WARS AND ALL STRIFE OF ALL THE AGES OF THIS WORLD. THIS IS THE SEASON OF THE RESOLUTION OF DISORDER ON PLANET EARTH. ALL HISTORY PAST PRESENT AND FUTURE IS COMING TO A HEAD IN THIS SEASON.
THIS IS THE REASON FOR WHICH CHRIST JESUS WAS BORN OF A WOMAN, CRUCIFIED, RESURRECTED, SEATED IN HEAVEN, AND RETURNED TO EARTH IN THE HOLY SPIRIT TO LIVE IN HIS COLLECTIVE BODY OF MANY SONS AND DAUGHTERS IN THIS WORLD.
The decade of the 2020s is only the early stages of the transition from a world ruled by darkness to the world ruled by the kingdom of God.
THE RULE OF DARKNESS THROUGH NATURAL MANKIND
The natural man is no match against the power of the spirits of darkness. The devil and his demons do not fear fallen mankind and are able to easily deceive and manipulate unredeemed human beings who do not possess the light and love of God in Christ Jesus within them by the fullness of the Holy Spirit of God. The kingdom of darkness has had free reign over multitudes of human beings who do not have the power of Christ formed within them.
The powers of darkness including Satan and all of his demons are completely defeated by the work of Christ Jesus. Believers who abide in Christ and who have the Spirit of Christ abiding in them by the Holy Spirit have authority over the powers of darkness. (1 John 4:4, Luke 10:19).
THE NEW EARTH
The rushing might wind of the LIFE of love and light of Spirit God released into the world by believers is the power and wisdom to dissolve the works and ways of darkness from this world. (Acts 2:2).
God is sending powerful holy angels to work with the people of God to obliterate every enemy of God in this world and restore the world to its intended state of the rule of the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. (Isaiah 2:10-21).
The born again fully redeemed and restored mankind is called a new creation. In the same way the redeemed and restored world is a new creation. It is all by Christ Jesus the reality of glory in this world. (2 Corinthians 5:17).
As we pass through the valley of the shadow of death, the Lord like a good shepherd caring for His sheep will see us through. It is all things that are not of God that are being destroyed. The Lord is our Shepherd who will lead us to green pastures and still waters and keep us from all fear of evil even in the midst of the great fiery dissolution of all that is evil on earth. (Psalm 23).
The pure holy seed of the purified people of God will pass through the narrow gate into the broad spaces of the glory of the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.
The Lord is speaking to us of these things that we be not overtaken by the intensity of the abrupt changes of this season that we have now entered.
This is the great hope of the world. The coming of the fullness of God on earth. Many of us will fulfill our time and our part before the fullness is fully manifested. It is with great joy that we can look into the Spirit realm and become aware of the things of the kingdom of God’s fullness beyond this now transformative season of the end of the old and the establishing of the new.
Some of you reading this will remain to fully experience the fullness of the manifestation of the kingdom of God on earth in your lifetime on earth. Yet, we all can experience it now within us as the righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.
Thank you, Jesus! Thank you, Father God, for such a wonderful life and beautiful world filled with the LIGHT and LOVE of Your LIFE now and forever.

I then heard the Lord say “JUSTICE IS MINE” says the Lord. There is going to be a divine demonstration of the justice of God that is going to be seen in the United States of America. The demonstration of the Lord’s power and His justice to “OVERTURN” is upon the United States of America. “With My mighty hand, I shall overturn the plans of the wicked” I then heard the words thundering… “My people, you are about to see a major demonstration of the POWER OF MY PROPHETIC VOICE in the earth”
On 10/19/2020, the Lord brought me in the spirit and showed me what is coming to the world—especially to our nation. For those who have been serving Him and following Him, these changes that are coming very soon will be wonderful. Almost daily since then, He has been talking to me about the many changes that are coming. Here are a few of the things He has said: He wants us to
America, America don’t doubt the words of My prophets who told you the truth about this day. Both modern and ancient prophets spoke of this day, they spoke for Me not for themselves. Trust My words that came through their mouths and do not fear. Open your eyes to learn about My ways, for the prophet, priest and king David told you in Psalm 23:5 “I prepare a table before you in the presence of your enemies; I have anointed your head with oil; Your cup overflows.” What you are seeing is the enemies of this nation being exposed for all to see, but you, America, are sitting at the table with Me.
What a year we have had, full of great opportunities to strengthen our faith. Someone told me the other day that they felt like they had been in a submarine that was just resurfacing. During this time, we have all had a lot of rearranging to do. People have been moving physically, and so many have been moving forward spiritually. There has been a shaking; but you know, when Paul and Silas were in the inner jail, they shouted and praised God. The “inner prison” which they were held in was….
God is calling His people to return to the basics, to tighten down those key principle practices in our daily lives, because of what He wants to do in the earth in this upcoming season.
