THE “ALL-IN” AWAKENING – Ron McGatlin
The metaphorical term “all-in” refers to a total or complete investment of all that we have into one thing. There is nothing left if the investment is not successful.
It is very rare in natural human life for anyone to make such an investment of their total life into one project. Most often there is some reserve of a portion of the life or some escape route available, just in case the thing failed to function as anticipated. Living in an imperfect world, this seems to be a very reasonable concept.
GOD, LOVE, AND COVENANT
A whole new, yet very old, way is now changing our lives and the world around us. God’s way of love has never been a contract with reservations or escape routes.
God’s love is blood covenant. It never fails, cannot be canceled or successfully escaped.
The world and mankind are objects of God’s unconditional love. (John 3:16). “For God so loved the world…”
Separation from intimate love relationship with God is spiritual lack or death to human beings. Total separation from God is death.
Believing in Christ Jesus is to know the sacrificial “all-in” love of God for each of us. Being saturated and filled with the Holy Spirit of God is being consumed by Spirit Christ Jesus and Father God’s perfect love and life. This is falling completely in love with God.
His presence within us draws us to His manifest presence with us on earth now. In His manifest presence we are overcome with love beyond description. Our hearts desire is only to please Him. Our former life with its affections is past and new glorious Spirit life in and with God is who we now are.
MARRIAGE OF THE LAMB
This is the change now coming to the world. Falling in love with God and dying to the old life is literally a “no brainer”. The overwhelming love, righteousness, peace and joy of becoming one with God obliviates all other desires of past existence of this life.
We who are now being married to the Lamb of God are becoming one with Him and one with one another. Being one with God, in Christ Jesus, by the Holy Spirit is now eternal everlasting life. Christ is ours and we are His now and forever. (Revelation 19:6-9).
The true Body and Bride of God is becoming fruitful and multiplying to fill the earth with the real kingdom of God, which is the kingdom of heaven on earth. (Genesis 1:28).
“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.’
But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.’” 1 Corinthians 2:9-10.
THE WAR WITH THE NATURAL MIND
The natural man and the religious person that is yet affected by the natural mind cannot understand these things. Only by the revelation of the Holy Spirit can we hear the word of love and marriage of Jesus to His prepared Bride now on earth. To the natural mind this is foolishness. It also can be seen as religious heresy to the Christian that does not have the fullness of the Holy Spirit and is still somewhat affected by the natural mind. (1 Corinthians 2:11-16).
The war is against Christ Jesus and the reality of His kingdom coming forth on earth. It is the spirits of darkness in high places that foster the war against King Jesus and His people on earth. (Ephesians 6:12).
The war is intensified in this season of the “coming” (manifesting) of Christ Jesus.
The war is about the manifesting of the reality of Christ Jesus on earth present with all the power of heaven taking back the kingdoms of this world to become the kingdom of our God. (Revelation 11:15).
Spirit Christ is now present to ride with His chosen people on the white horses of the power of heaven to cleanse the earth of all evil and fill it with the love of God in the fullness of His glorious kingdom of heaven on earth. This is Christ Jesus ruling on earth with a rod of iron removing all that will not yield to the love of God. (Revelation 19:11-21).
DISCERN THE WAR BY THE SPIRIT
The battles and destructions of the war are not always what they look like to the natural mind. The apocalyptic and cataclysmic events of deadly destruction and devastation may not be exactly what they look like.
Just because one nation or group brutally attacks another does not mean that either side is godly or ungodly. It may be one ungodly group destroying another ungodly group or perhaps an ungodly group being used to cause refinement of a somewhat godly group.
In other words that which appears evil to a natural mind might be a corrective force of the kingdom of God coming forth on earth. Only by the Spirit of God can the true discernment of all that is happening be rightly discerned.
DEATH AND DESTRUCTION ARE NOT OF GOD
All death and destruction on planet earth are the result of mankind turning away from the love of God. Only mankind falling in love with God will produce the perfect alignment with God that will put to an end the death and destruction on earth.
Love brings willing obedience to God in every aspect of life. Intimate love relationship with God and man is righteousness or perfect oneness and alignment with God and all of His universal ways of designed creation.
Perfect harmony between creation and creator is the plan and purpose of God that fills the earth with His glory and makes our lives complete in rapturous beauty of peace and joy beyond description.
LOVE, RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE AND JOY ARE OF GOD
It is a warm mid spring morning here in North Carolina as I am writing this. It seems that almost overnight all the trees have turned fully green. Many flowers have bloomed and more are popping open. Life is abundantly visible.
As I experience my 90th spring I feel so blessed to again enjoy the fresh life of God faithfully poured out into this world.
The entire population of the world changes every 120 years. All of the people on earth that were 30 years old or above when I was born are now gone from this life. Not one person of them remains alive on earth in all of the world.
The extreme change that has taken place in this world in my short life is literally unbelievable to my natural mind. The rate of change seems to have greatly accelerated in this season.
Not the least of the changes are in the Spirit realm of relationship with living mankind and God.
Given the rate of change that I have seen take place and the exponential increase in that rate of change continuing into the very near future, the fullness of the kingdom of God on earth is imminent, and has already begun manifesting within and upon us.
THE “ALL-IN” KINGDOM EXPLOSION
Our imaginations may not be able to fully consider the explosive release of the omnipotent power of God exploding into this world through the perfect love relationship of God with His ALL-IN Body and Bride on earth.
The call of the love of God is so alluring that the people of God are more than willing to lay down their entire lives at the feet of Jesus. There is nothing the enemy can use from this world to draw them away from totally giving their lives one hundred percent to God.
This ALL-IN love relationship opens the way for the full power and wisdom of God to flow from heaven to and through the pure holy manifested people of God on earth. Armies of holy angels will deliver powerful innovative ideas and heavenly ways to produce life on earth beyond anything ever before known on earth.
The glorious love and power of God will be freely given into the hands of His people that are in perfect love with God. There is no need for God to withhold any good thing from His perfectly obedient love family on earth.
Is this the time for us all to go all-in? I know it is for me!
Love never fails and,
His kingdom never ends!
