AMERICA IS DESPERATELY HUNGRY FOR GOD! – Ron McGatlin
The pure holy love and glory of the manifest presence of God is cooking in homes and gatherings in store fronts, rented halls, tents, and other outdoor gatherings of worship, praise, prayer and loving fellowship with God and one another in the manifest presence of God.
The beautiful aroma of the manifest presence of God in Jesus within the gatherings is flowing out into the atmosphere to the desperate people starving for the love and glory of the manifest presence of God.
In the latter 1930s and early 1940s, in a very different America, I remember summer days as a boy outside in the neighborhood playing with other children from yard to yard up to a couple of blocks from home. I always new to head home as soon as the sun began to set in our south Dallas Texas neighborhood.
As I walked past all the other houses with their doors and windows open; long before air-conditioning was available. The delicious aroma of frying steak or porkchops floated out of the houses on the almost still evening air to this hungry boy of 6 to 9 years old. I had been busily playing very active games all afternoon and had no thought of food or home until that delicious aroma awakened a great hunger in me. That delicious smell of good food cooking in the neighborhood caused me to walk faster and faster until I was full out running to get home for supper.
EVENING TIME IN AMERICA
America and much of the world is beginning to smell the beautiful aroma flowing out from the love feasts of the manifest presence of God taking place in the many gatherings of Bride of Christ worshipers.
America has been busy playing games without even a thought of hunger for the reality of the manifest presence of the love and glory of God.
In the evening time of covid and such, before the full darkness of nightfall, a slowdown from the many games of life has occurred in America. A hunger has developed for going back to the games we were playing or perhaps onward to something else that will make a new satisfying life for us.
That dissatisfaction of the loss of the way that life was in recent decades with all its empty games is the beginning of a turn toward home as the sun is going down. As the hungry people begin to get a whiff of the feast of the supernatural reality of the manifest presence of God with us and within us, they become desperately hungry to actually become one with God in His manifest presence. They are hungry for real life in God.
The desperate hunger for the food that can only come when we are at home in the manifest presence of God draws us to break into a full run toward home for supper time in the love and glory of the manifest presence of God.
HUNGRY FOR REAL FOOD
America and the world are not hungry for sweet treats or tasty snacks just now. We are starving for the meat, potatoes and gravy with some fresh green beans and salad from the garden and some hot biscuits or corn bread. Mostly it is that aroma from the steak cooking that beckons to our spirits to run for home, to the manifest presence of God.
We don’t need for it to be served in a grand formal setting of elegant table settings of beautiful tableware of crystal, gold and silver with multiple dainty forks and spoons each for a different purpose. We are not impressed by crystal chandeliers for light and special music for every mood. We are not even concerned if our etiquette is perfect and all the table manners and customs are perfectly kept and carried out. We have already found that all of that is empty and vain without the manifest presence of our Lord and King. Even a stable or barn or cave is filled with glory and love if the King of Glory is there with us.
We are just hungry for the REAL food, the manifest presence of the love and glory of God that consumes us with His fire. Nothing else is of utmost importance. Nothing else can take away our vileness and consume us with love and fill us with His life of glory now and forever.
Are you beginning to smell the aroma of the wedding feast of mortal mankind putting on immortality becoming a new creation filled with the life, love, power and wisdom of life in Christ and Christ in us?
God in Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit of fire is bringing heaven into this life now in this world. Abiding in His manifest presence is heaven coming to earth. We become the gates through which the glory of heaven comes into this world to restore the kingdoms of this world to the kingdom of our God.
The kings of this world must become the sons of God. Another way to say that is the sons of God must become kings and priests in this world. Joint heirs with Christ as sons and daughters of God, one with God as we no longer live but Christ lives in us.
THE GREAT FALLING AWAY
America and the nations are falling away, no longer to exist as they have been. The great falling away is making room for the Lord of lords and King of kings to fully reign on earth in the pure holy love, wisdom and power of God in us and with us in His fully manifested presence.
God has not changed and is not changing. Mankind has been in a process of great change for the past two thousand years. The church age is over and the kingdom age has begun.
In the church age all the people of the world were divide into two major categories, the church system and the world system. The world system despised the church system and the church system wanted as little to do with the world system as possible.
One of the major objectives of the church system was to get as many of the people as they could out of the world system and into the church system.
The wall between the two systems was reinforced from both sides. However, the church system began to take on qualities of the world system for the purpose of drawing people into the church system. The church system for the most part lost the fire of the Holy Spirit. In an effort to attract people it became much less powerful and much more like the world system. Eventually the church system became enough like the world system that a measure of cooperation existed between the two systems.
In later centuries some of the church people began to be restored to the original fire of the Spirit of God. A great reformation of the church began to restore truth to the people piece by piece and layer by layer.
THE FRACTURED CHURCH SYSTEM
Many splits and separations fractured the church system. As truth and power was restored, separation occurred between the people who received it and those that did not receive it, and many different denominations were formed.
From time to time many valiant efforts to reunite the church denominations failed. Only about a hundred and thirty years ago has the fullness of the Holy Spirit began to penetrate the denomination walls. And only in the recent past few decades has the gospel of the kingdom began to be widely restored to the people of God.
THE ONSLAUGHT OF DARKNESS
The restoration of the kingdom of God is greatly feared by the world system. The manifest presence of God with the love, wisdom and power of the kingdom is the light of God from heaven that leaves no room for the work of darkness that rules the world systems and has invaded the church system.
A worldwide onslaught of evil darkness has arisen against the now growing kingdom of the power and love of God changing the world and leaving no room for the darkness. This is causing the great hidden darkness of satanic evil to be exposed.
The evil darkness that is ruling in the world system and to a degree in the church system is rising up in plain sight, in a last-ditch effort to stop the kingdom of God and remove the rightful King Jesus and His people from this world.
Many that have been deceived through the much mind crafting of the darkness, propagated through every world system communication and training media, are now being made to see the vileness and the evil darkness that has been posing as light to deceive.
HOME IN THE MANIFEST PRESENCE OF GOD
Run don’t walk to the supper time at the table of God in the fullness of His pure holy love. This is the Day of the Lord present in and with those who come with their whole hearts into His bridal chamber. This is the darkness of night season and the Bride Groom is manifested to receive His pure holy bride. Awaken trim your lamp and be set on fire with the love of God by the Holy Spirit.
The same night of the judgment of the wicked is the night season of the marriage of His bride people in His manifest presence.
9 But as it is written:
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.
10 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. 1 Corinthians 9-10.
The supper time aroma is in the air of the Spirit.
It is time to come home to the manifest presence of Father God in Christ Jesus literally gathering with us and in us by the Holy Spirit.
