1. LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED BE ANXIOUS FOR NOTHING – Ron McGatlin
Love is the one and only source of perfect peace.
God is the one and only source of pure holy love.
God’s love for mankind is evident in the perfect provisions for mankind in creation. In God’s created environment for mankind in the Garden of Eden, provision was complete and perfect in every way. Food from trees all perfectly packaged or wrapped and ready to eat. Fresh clean clear water to drink. Fresh air in abundance. Everything needed for quality life in the presence of God.
The desire of God was that this beautiful, peaceful, everlasting, self-renewing design would be spread to the entire world through the fruitfulness and multiplication of mankind with God. (Genesis 1:28).
All of this was lost in Adam and has been reinstated through Christ Jesus. Christ in us by the Holy Spirit restores us to be the sons and daughters of God with an even greater oneness with God.
God’s love and provision is here for us now in the presence of God. Peace like a river floods our hearts and lives as Spirit God in Christ by the Holy Spirit flows pure holy LOVE filling and consuming our being. (Romans 5:5).
Within our hearts, we abide in the Garden of God in perfect love consumed in the tender embrace of all-powerful, all-knowing perfect love.
We are forever changed in the consummated love union as one inseparable Spirit being with Christ. Heaven and earth are joined as one in Christ. (1 Corinthians 6:17).
Christ Jesus lives now on earth.
The same Son of God who was with God in the beginning, the one by whom and for whom all things were created on earth as it is in heaven, the Son of perfect love now abides in the hearts of His people. (John 1:1-3,14) (Romans 8:9-10).
The living God abides on Planet Earth within His Body, His Bride in pure holy LOVE. (Romans 8:11) (Colossians 1:27) (1 Corinthians 6:19).
THE GARDEN OF GOD IS IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD
Dwelling with God in His garden of provision, there is no troubling anxiety of any form in our hearts and lives. There is no frustrating lack. We are filled and satisfied no matter how much or how little we have. God’s provision is always enough to complete the plan of God for our lives at that time. (John 15:7) (Philippians 4:11-13).
Perfect peace is being at rest in the arms of God at all times. Whether we are received or persecuted, we are not upbraided or put down by either one. Abiding in God’s love is all we need. We are always filled to overflowing with His life of love in the Garden of God.
God is love.
God with His love is the source of all life. God and life are inseparably connected and characterized by love. (1 John 4:7-8).
There is no death in God.
There is love, light, and life in God. There is no unlove, darkness, or death in God. (1 John 1:5).
Separation from God is death.
Trouble, sickness, pain, disease, disorder, fear, worry, anxiety, lack of thriving, and other negative torments are the works of death in process.
Unlove is the lack or absence of the presence of God’s love functioning in a person.
The world is greatly troubled by unlove or lack of the presence of God’s love in the people of the world.
Just as there is life and no death in God, the opposite is true in Satan and his demons of darkness. There is death and no life or love in Satan and his demons.
People, tribes, and nations have chosen to reject God and His design and are greatly troubled in the world today.
Troubled hearts have become even more troubled with pandemics, political deceit, hatred, violence, child trafficking, persecution, shut downs, storms, and many other apocalyptic events.
In an attempt to escape the troubling and anxiety in their hearts and lives, some have turned to drugs, alcohol, and other obsessions such as spectator sports, inordinate romance, violent activities, reclusion, and more that temporarily replace or dulls the pain and frustration of their troubled hearts.
THE SEASON OF AWAKENING TO THE LOVE OF GOD
The gods of this world have been raised up by deceived mankind to replace the one true God. The powers of darkness have captured the minds and hearts of many if not most of the people of the world. With blinded minds the masses have been tricked into turning away from the way and the truth of the living God. (John 12:40) (2 Corinthians 4:4).
A culture of darkness has invaded the nations of the world and now is seeking to remove any work or semblance of God and His people from the earth.
The manifest presence of God and His love is now coming forth in a pure-hearted people who are being formed on earth, a people of God so filled with His love that darkness has no place in them.
Literally, Christ is being formed in them by the Holy Spirit. The flow of the love of God brings the power and wisdom of heaven to dwell in and with to bring forth the rule and reign of the King of kings and the Lord of lords. (Galatians 4:19).
DARKNESS TO GLORY
Gross darkness will blanket the world and the light of God shall arise in the new people of God without measure who will speak the fire of God exploding light into the darkness. The power of God flowing from the love of God will cleanse the earth and restore the Garden of God in the place of the ashes of the past. The New Jerusalem people will arise in the Garden of God’s love. (Isaiah 60:1-3) (Isaiah 61:1-3) (Revelation 21:1-5).
The earth will become as heaven. All creation will rejoice as the God of love and peace is further exposed to all creation beyond our human knowledge or understanding.
What pain or suffering we may have experienced is not worthy to be compared with the glory and the splendor of the fullness of the eternal immortal kingdom of our God shining forth into the eternal reality of everlasting love.
“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.” Romans 8:18.
“Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” Luke 12:32.
(Ron’s Note: There is a lot of godly wisdom here for this current season. Well worth the time to watch!)

God put you here for a reason and placed unique giftings and longings within you, but that doesn’t mean others will have a sense of your call or know how to propel you forward. Throughout Scripture we see the enemy’s attempts to derail God’s people.
When 300 pastors and leaders made reservations, we were stunned. That was three times more than any previous pastors’ luncheon we had held. Then, overnight that number zoomed to 500. We scrambled to figure out how to handle such a large group. We finally capped the reservations at 700 thinking surely that would meet the demand, but we were wrong. So, we added 300 seats making the final limit 1,000.
Shawn Ercoli, COO of Iris Global, shares a powerful testimony of how one local man and his family came to find Jesus after cyclone Kenneth devastated his village and then extremist violence made them flee. We are grateful for your prayers and support as we continue bringing the practical love of Jesus to communities in need, especially now as another cyclone has barreled through central Mozambique.
Powerful words are being spoken concerning the moving of God and the coming of His Kingdom.
Where do we stand in this today?!
I am writing to you about a very dangerous piece of legislation—the Equality Act. The Biden Administration has said they want to pass this within their first 100 days. I cannot say this more emphatically—for people, for businesses, and for ministries of faith, the Equality Act is a threat to life as we know it in our nation today. It’s a real game-changer.
