By Ron McGatlinEvening and Morning
The end precedes the new beginning.
The dawning of each day is the beginning of its end.
So it is with all natural life. Only the creator of all life has no beginning and no end.
God is inviting us to transcend from natural life into life of no beginning or end.
Life not of this world but in this world. Life within time but not of time.
Life that did not begin at our birth on earth but was and is and shall be.
A life of awakening to Spirit awareness of a life before time as a Spirit-being and now abiding in an earthly body.
A life of oneness with Christ Jesus abiding within by the Holy Spirit.
A life of endlessness and limitlessness Spirit life in earthly natural bodies.
It Is Evening
It is evening time for past limitations and failures that we have endured as natural mankind striving to attain a godly life in a world bent on evil and self-destruction. It is evening time for our doubts, fears, and weaknesses arising from the lack of experiencing who we really are, where we really came from, and the purpose for which we have come to this world.
It Is Morning
It is morning for the fresh resurrection life of Christ within us arising in the brightness of our originally created state as sons of the living Almighty God in Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit. At the moment when we give our lives to Christ Jesus and His life enters our being, our mortal bodies take onboard immortality of life eternal without limitations. In the twinkling of an eye, our mortal bodies have become carriers of immortal life within. (2 Cor 5:17) (1 Cor 15:54).
Literally Christ is our life.
IN CHRIST we are firmly connected into the vast unlimited resources of Spirit God at the throne of all creation. (Eph 2:6).
CHRIST IN US while we are in this natural body on earth connects the unlimited resources of Spirit God in heaven to this world through us. Christ in us is literally bringing heaven to earth. (Col 1:27).
We that are in Christ and Christ is in us are the light of the world, the one true source of the heavenly life of love, power, and wisdom of Almighty God ruling and reigning on earth. (Mat 5:14) (2 Tim 2:11-12).
THE ONE GREAT HINDRANCE IS NOW COMING TO AN END.
The one and only thing that hinders the fullness of the release of the unlimited resources of Spirit God from heaven is man’s declaration of independence from God. Through mankind’s choice to function and rule life in this world by his own understanding and ability without God, faith and hope are lost, and the ability to love is tossed aside.
Men become their own god each striving for supremacy and control over people and the wealth of the world. Rebelliousness, greed, lust, and pride lead to strife to take control over the people and the wealth of the world. In the fierceness of this evil competition, mankind produces his own death as nations and tribes destroy one another in world wars. “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.” (Mat 24:7).
THE GREAT APPEARING
Christ Jesus, Lord of all, is now appearing (manifesting) in the world from the hearts and lives of those who love God and are again declaring their dependence on God alone to rule their lives. Faith is being restored, hope is alive, and the true ability to love is filling hearts and lives. The righteousness, peace, and joy of the kingdom of God is becoming the greatest desire of the hearts of God’s people. “When He comes, in that Day, to be glorified IN HIS SAINTS and to be admired among all those who believe…..” 2 Thes 1:10.
As pure hearted men and women of God seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, the wealth after which the world seeks is being added to them. (Mat 6:32-33). Mankind is being restored to our original place as pure holy sons of God ruling and reigning with Christ on earth. Truly the kingdoms of this world shall become the kingdoms of our God. (Rev 11:15).
Because there is now coming forth a people on earth in whom Christ fully dwells, the supernatural intervention of God will come forth to redeem all who will turn to God with their whole hearts and at the same time God will cleanse the world of all that is not of God. The perfect order of the Garden of Eden lifestyle of God dwelling with man in the righteousness, peace, and joy of the rule of Love on earth. God is love.
This season has begun and is now available to you and me today. There is nothing impossible to the Spirit of God in us as we reckon ourselves dead to the old life and alive unto God. (Rom 6:11) (Mark 9:23). Allow God in Christ to have full authority over our lives. Declare our complete utter dependence upon God and lean not to our own understanding. Let the love of God rule in our lives and believe the written word of God revealed by the Spirit of God. Let the pure revelation of God flow from the written word by the living Word of Christ in us the hope of glory in this world.
“If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” Mark 9 23.
“For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing MANY SONS to glory….” Heb 2:10.
“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are SONS OF GOD.” Rom 8:14.
