ABOUNDING IN GLORY – Ron McGatlin
Are we really ready for God’s glory in all times and seasons?
The manifest presence of Almighty God brings the all-consuming overwhelming passionate love union of becoming one with God. This marriage consumes the life of His purified holy Bride.
God our Father in Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit in love union with us and in us is the reality of God’s glory coming forth to change this world. The glorious presence of the King of Glory leaves no room for the darkness of evil to continue to exist.
Living as one with God there is always a full supply of all things.
Love consumes our desire for anything that is outside the will and desire of God.
In the greatest romance of all eternity there is no end to abundance of life.
The kingdom of God, kingdom of heaven on earth is the perfect order of all things bringing peace and joy by the harmony of the created world with heaven as one.
THE COMING OF THE KING OF GLORY
Have you ever thought about what happens to all evil darkness that is roaming the streets of this world and sitting in high places of authority and seeking to cancel God from the earth? What about the multitude of duped men and women, young and old, that are inflamed with evil spirits of darkness to hate and desire to steal, kill, and destroy?
Think for a moment how much darkness in the systems and the people of this world-order, or more accurately said, world-disorder, must be dissolved or changed.
As huge as the goodness of the glory of God is to the people in love with God, it is an equal level of badness to the people of the darkness.
The fire of the glory of God leaves only ashes or dust of the evil darkness of this world-order and its ungodly systems.
ALL WHO WILL COME CAN COME OUT OF THE DARKNESS INTO THE LIGHT.
“The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light,
And upon those who sat in the region and shadow of death light has dawned. From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, ‘Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.’” Matthew 4:16-17.
The greatest harvest ever is the migration of multitudes of deceived and mislead people coming to the light of the glory of God.
Every work of this conversion or transition is characterized by being all in or all out. In the glory of God there is no middle ground and no shadows of turning back to darkness. (James 1:17).
THE NOW SEASON OF SEPARATION
The manifest presence of King Jesus, the King of Glory, is dividing the sheep from the goats and casting the goats to His left hand and the sheep to His right hand. The sheep at His right hand inherit the kingdom of God and the goats on the left go into an everlasting fire of torment.
The only criteria used for the decision was whether or not they provided for the needs of the people in whom Christ Jesus lived. In other words, those who, by love, served God by serving His people. Boiled down even more, it becomes those who loved God and their neighbor. God loves all mankind but not all people love Him back. Only those who love God back are in a love relationship with God. (Matthew 25:31-44).
The manifest presence of Spirit King Jesus is now in this season bringing forth the glory of God on earth and dividing the sheep from the goats nationally, regionally, by city or tribe, family groups and individuals. The whole world is being divided at the one focal point of the glory of God on earth through King Jesus the King of Glory.
“When the Son of Man comes IN HIS GLORY, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the THRONE OF HIS GLORY.” Matthew 25:31.
TIME TO MOVE NOW!
The sheep people at every level need to now gather with those who are the people in love with God. This is the season of the last call to COME OUT OF BABYLON MY PEOPLE! (Revelation 18:4-5).
The middle ground is dissolving and there is no straddling the fence or living in a mixture on earth. You will now fall in love with God or with the darkness of the evil ungodly satanic world of self-pleasure without real love, peace and joy.
It is time now to form co-ops and communities of loving God and one another in every aspect of life. Move closer together with those who love God. Be separate from, and do not associate on a personal familial level with those who are of darkness. Love everyone but move toward those who love God and love you, and move away from those who do not.
Do good to all but especially to the household of faith in God. (Galatians 6:10).
Do not cast your pearls before pigs or give what is holy to dogs. Pigs and dogs are not bad animals. In fact they are among the smartest of all animals and very useful to man but they can be very selfish. Pigs are those who serve themselves first instead of God and others. Dogs are those who live immorally and bite and devour in order to preserve their immorality. (Matthew 7:6).
God loves everyone and Jesus died for all, but only those who come to Him are born again as a new creation redeemed unto God.
Our old life is crucified with Christ and we are filled with the new resurrection life of Christ living in us by the Holy Spirit of God. (2 Corinthians 5:17) (Galatians 2:20).
COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM
”….what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: ‘I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they shall be My people.’ Therefore, ‘come out from among them and be separate,’ says the Lord. ‘Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you. I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters,’ says the Lord Almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6:16-18.
There are seasons or times of being among the world and friends with the lost, demonstrating the love of God to them as God leads. Yet, there is not a season or time to be equally yoked together with the evil of their darkness.
As God leads, we are to give to them but not be yoked together with them.
There are also seasons when the glory has come and it is rejected and hated by those in darkness. This is a time of the evil seed bearing much bad fruit.
The evil plant or tree must be cut down and rooted out. God is not willing that any should perish. However, God will not override the free will that has been given to mankind. Those who will come to the light of God will be saved from their darkness and filled with the light and love of God.
Loving God is a choice that must be made. Love always begins with a choice. God chose to love mankind and we can decide to love God with the same love that He has for us.
This is love that a man would lay down His life for another. Loving God is laying down our lives for God, becoming a living sacrifice. (John 15:13) (1 John 3:16) (Romans 12:1-2).
Losing ones life by laying it down for God opens the way for the far greater life of the fullness of the glory of God.
Now is the greatest time that we will ever have to lose our lives and receive the resurrected life of Christ Jesus the King of Glory fully living in us. The return of Jesus literally living in and with us is Christ in you the positive hope of GLORY. (Colossians 1:27).
The reality of the glory of God in and with us is establishing the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. (Luke 17:20-21).
The fulfillment of Passover and Pentecost has taken place and now Tabernacles is coming about. The awesome time of God in Christ by the Holy Spirit abiding in and with us on earth. (Revelation 21:3) (John 14:20-23) (John 17:20-21, 26).
THE SHIPS THAT BROUGHT US TO THIS NEW LAND ARE BURNING BEHIND US
Never look back and never return or reclaim our old life apart from the glory of God. Arise and shine, move into the new land of the glorious life of God in and with us as we tabernacle together with Him now on earth in His everlasting kingdom without end.
Truly the vehicles that brought us to this new land of the presence of the glory of God appear to provide a possible way back to the limited provisions of bondage and captivity. There is nothing behind us but ashes and dust. There is a land like the Garden ahead of us and a desolate wilderness behind us. (Joel Chapter 2)
Though the limited provision may have seemed secure and the future not yet experienced is only known by faith, there is nothing left of the past. The beauty for the ashes is only ahead of us in the fullness of the Glory of the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.
“To console those who mourn in Zion,
To give them beauty for ashes,
The oil of joy for mourning,
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
That they may be called trees of righteousness,
The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.” (Isaiah 61:3)
”….Your kingdom come. Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.’” (Luke 11:2).
