SPIRITUALLY ETERNAL AND NATURALLY TEMPORAL – Ron McGatlin
To the natural understanding, it may appear that which is seen and corporeal is primary, more real, and fundamental than that which is unseen and spiritual.
Natural Adamic mankind without the redemption and the filling of Christ Jesus in the Holy Spirit cannot see nor understand the things of Spirit God. Spiritual things seem as foolishness to him. (1 Corinthians 2:13-16).
However, they may be able to believe in evil supernatural things as fantasy and eventually as reality of superior powers in real life. Witchcraft and sorcery may seem like exciting and playful magic. Ghosts and scary spirits of darkness may seem like imaginary or playful illusions.
The natural human being without God is erroneously drawn toward the evil supernatural by their innate unrecognized desire for the Holy supernatural Spirit reality of God.
HUMANISM A DOORWAY TO DARKNESS
A person trained by natural human understanding of creation and life without God yet has a deep inner desire or fascination for some form of supernatural power and experience.
Humanism is the belief that all of life exists in man without any need for any other God or gods. The power of the mind of man becomes believed to be all-sufficient.
Yet there remains a desire or lack of satisfaction deep within the heart of mankind that drives him to seek more, more wealth, more experiences of gratification, more power, and more challenges to overcome.
We could go on with the details of how the plans of evil darkness have taken over many if not most of the people of the world and are ruling much of the world and affecting all the world to some degree.
However, this article is about the supremacy of Spirit in this life over temporal natural life in this world.
A MAJOR SHIFT TO NEW GARDEN SPIRIT LIFE VISION
The Garden of Eden was God’s created life on earth. All was created in harmony and with its own seed to multiply and fill the earth with the perfect design of heavenly life manifested from Spirit Heaven into temporal natural creation with everlasting renewal quality built-in along with perfect balances and self-correcting qualities.
Mankind made in the image and likeness of God was endowed with the ability to supernaturally connect with Spirit God to coordinate the dominion of all the garden of creation to fill the world with the design and Glory of the love of God.
The New Garden is the return of the original design of God establishing the beginnings of seed pockets of restored Sons of God in perfect love union with God to be fruitful and multiply.
This is a work of Spirit God from heaven. My natural mind would tend to look at that which God has shown and ask questions like how can these things be in a crowded messed up world? Where are the detailed plans for it like those given for the tabernacle and the temple of the Old Testament?
I believe that the New Garden formations of maturing sons and daughters of God is truly a work of God and each seedbed group may not be the same as another. This is truly a work of God. They may or may not even know of other groups in the beginning. They each may have somewhat different overall emphasis or focus and giftings that make up the whole of the kingdom of God when grown together.
SUPERNATURAL AND NATURAL BECOME ONE AGAIN
There is no natural without the supernatural Spirit of God. The natural or physical can only exist by the power and will of the spiritual supernatural.
Supernatural Spirit God created and causes all the natural or physical creation to exist. Satan usurped the authority of dominion given to man and caused a separation from God in the dominion authority on Planet Earth.
The Spirit Son of God became a man Christ Jesus to destroy the works of the devil and restore the full connection and dominion governance of Father God and mankind.
God in Christ is now in the later stages of restoring the King’s Dominion in mankind on earth. A spiritual natural people are being prepared through cleansing and restoration by Christ Jesus to receive dominion of the world with and for God. A new garden of Eden reality is coming about to fill the earth and restore it to the original design and plan of the One Spirit God Almighty.
The natural reality of life in this world in the new gardens will be the natural carried out as one in natural supernatural workings and provisions. The presence of God and the mind of Christ will guide in all matters of life and godliness. (2 Peter 1:2-4).
Supernaturally Holy Spirit will draw purified sons and daughters to the bright light of God shining out from the Spirit dome of protection and glory of God. Nothing shall enter that defiles the group. (Revelation 21;27).
Those who see the light and start walking toward it will experience the intense bright light of God exposing anything in them that defiles. They will either quickly repent and be cleansed and continue their journey into the dome or they will be cast back out into the painful disorder of outer darkness where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth until they repent. When they repent, they are instantly returned to their same place on the journey toward the dome. (Matthew 4:16) (Matthew 8:11-12).
THE MANY ARE ONE
The new garden groups may begin very small but will grow as God draws in those that are to come. Though these small groups may be many, in the Spirit they are each a part of the one Body and purified Bride of Christ being formed now on earth. The Bride of Christ is the New Jerusalem city of God coming down from heaven. Revelation 21:9-10, “Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came to me and talked with me, saying, ‘Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.’ And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God.”
The new garden groups are the beginning seeds that grow to become the city of God on earth. The New Jerusalem habitation of God with mankind in pure holy love union of God and His wife as one family in heaven and on earth.
Each person that is part of the new gardens is totally in love with God. It is not only that they know and experience God’s love for them but they love God. They have fallen completely in love with God.
It is their love for God that opens the way for them into the new garden. God loves everyone unconditionally but only those who love Him enter the new garden of heaven’s ways on earth. (1 Corinthians 2:9-10).
CLEANSING JUDGMENTS OR GREAT TRIBULATION
The many seedbed garden groups will grow as the massive darkness of earth-cleansing judgment increases in intensity across the world. A further remnant will come out of darkness and begin their expedited journey toward the light.
Inside the dome is as it is in heaven on earth. The New Jerusalem city of God will grow as those who escape the destruction of Babylon make the journey of purification and are received into the city of New Jerusalem. (Revelation 18).
The pure holy people of God will multiply to replenish and restore the world’s ashes to the beauty of God. They will rebuild the old ruins and raise up former desolations, and they shall repair the ruined cities. (Isaiah 61:1-4).
All things are made new by the supernatural Spirit of God and holy angels working with the chosen people of God. It is the work of God and not of man lest any should boast. Man’s part is to BELIEVE that which God is saying and by love be aligned in agreement with what God is saying and doing. In love mankind will only do and say that which God is saying and doing.
CHOSEN TO HEAR AND SEE
“For many are called, but few are chosen.” Matthew 22:14”
The parable in Matthew 22:1-14 is the marriage to Jesus of those who chose to accept the invitation to come to the prepared feast.
Many were called to the great wedding celebration but many chose to tend to natural business things instead of responding to the call of God and missed the great wedding feast of God.
Only those who chose to attend and put on the proper wedding garment prepared by the master for the wedding of his son became the few who are chosen.
Only those who love and value God, who is Spirit, above the things of the natural world will be chosen to hear and see the greater fullness of that which God has prepared for those who are in love with Him.
“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.
Supernatural and natural are ONE in the fullness of God’s design now returning to earth in His new garden, Bride of Christ, New Jerusalem ruling City of His kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.
“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” Matthew 6:33-34.
