Living Without Mixture

By Ron McGatlin
Coming out of our traditional boxes does not assure us of moving into real kingdom living any more than emptying a storeroom of outdated goods fills it with fresh new supplies. However, emptying the storeroom must precede refilling it with fresh goods.
Living as a mature son of God in His kingdom lifestyle involves serious loss and great gain. Another way to say it is that it involves experiencing death and resurrection life. The season of our storeroom of beliefs and practices being emptied is sometimes referred to as a time in the wilderness. As our familiar paradigm of life is disappearing, the landscape of our hearts and lives may be as a barren wasteland for a season.
When Moses led the children of Israel out of bondage in Egypt on a journey toward freedom and the provisions of God, they desired to return to the familiar bondage where at least they had tasty food to eat. When they reached the place in their wilderness journey where it was time to cross over into the new paradigm of life, they received a bad report of fear and unbelief and rebelled against the way of God. They chose to turn back and eventually died in the wilderness having never experienced the Promised Land. Our promised land is the lifestyle of the kingdom of God on earth.
Turning Back
When my children were young we would take extended vacations in the Rocky Mountains traveling from one campground to another in a four-wheel-drive vehicle pulling a small travel trailer. We would spend a few days to a week in an area taking in all the sights and fishing the streams, and then move on to another area to explore. After we had left a campground and were on the road to the next place, my youngest son would always say, ďDaddy I want to go back to where we were.Ē In his immature thinking he believed that it was better to be back at the campground with its familiar surroundings than to be in that vehicle driving through sometimes high and narrow mountainous roads going someplace he had not been before and did not know about.
The Body of Christ is breaking camp, packing up, and on the road to a place we have not been before. What we and the saints before us have sought and only dreamed about is now before us in this season.
Fear Not. Do Not Fear.
Do not believe the bad reports coming against the pure, holy kingdom of God potential now available for those who will seek it with their whole hearts. Do not consider the past years of religious training and ways of life of our past encampment. Much of our recent past experience was without the full reality of Holy Spiritís guidance and provision. It was a mixture of freshly received Holy Spirit guidance and traditional religious forms and teachings that stopped short of the reality of the kingdom of God at hand now on earth.
One of the enemyís most effective stratagems is to run ahead of a new move of God with a perversion of the real truth that is coming forth from God. This has been very effective in creating fear of the manifesting kingdom of God on earth now and the preparation of mature sons of God. His strategy includes counterfeiting the freshly revealed truth and adding evil fleshly concepts into it. He then confirms his teachings with bad theology by twisting the written word. The error is soon discovered and the teaching discredited.
This causes believers to be paranoid of anything that sounds like the exposed perverted teachings. Dutiful theologians develop dreadful teachings regarding the perverted false teaching proffered by the enemy. When the true revelation of the kingdom of God and the maturing sons of God come forth from the true apostles and prophets of God many people run from it in fear. The dreadful teachings become like the bad report of the giants in the Promised Land that caused the children of Israel to turn back to their wilderness wanderings and fail to enter the land.  
Many who have experienced life in the Spirit in the past are in danger of turning back to the religious wasteland of denying the pure and holy lifestyle of the kingdom of God. Flee from the temptation to get back in the box by returning to bondage where the tasty food is prepared to keep you as immature children under tutors forever. Always learning and never coming to the truth(2 Tim 3:8).
God is now preparing a generation of mature sons (not gender specific)to lead His people into the freedom of the real kingdom of God lifestyle. The promised land of the New Jerusalem patterns of life is before us. Lift up your eyes and look up, for the City of God is descending from heaven as the Spirit is pouring the life of Christ into maturing sons. We no longer are bound to live in mixtures of godliness along with our fallen world ways of the old man inherited from Adamís nature.
We can now live without mixtures of darkness and disorder created by trying to religiously repair and improve our own lives. No longer need we excuse our lack of power over sin, flesh, and the devil. We are free to grow up unto our Father as emptied vessels that are filled with the life of Father God and Christ Jesus in the Holy Spirit. The kingdom of God is before us. The time of our maturing has come. We are maturing personally and corporately. We are maturing personally as grown sons released by the Father no longer under tutors (Gal 3 & 4). We are collectively maturing into the purified Body of Christ becoming the desire of Godís heart as a purified holy Bride.
But alas, why are some of the fathers who were once Spirit-led leaders unwilling to abandon their past camp where the fire has gone out and move with the Spirit? The Spirit has moved on, and they are left behind without the Spiritís empowerment. Having lost the guidance and discernment of the Holy Spirit, they are vulnerable to turning back to following powerless, religious ways led by rules and concepts.
We cannot live in the Kingdom of God lifestyle without being saturated in the Spirit of God and filled with His presence, His love, His power, and His wisdom. And we cannot be filled with fresh new things until we empty ourselves of the past. The truth is that many of us who were used as leaders in the past were yet mixture. In the past age of an immature church, God allowed greater tolerance as He always does for children under tutors. However, as the Body is maturing into the purity of kingdom, the tolerance or ďwiggle roomĒ is gone. There shall nothing enter in New Jerusalem that defiles (Rev 21:27).
Here is a paradox: we were once useable as leaders in the old system when the Holy Spirit empowerment and guidance was freshly returning to grow up the church. But now, in the new paradigm, we may become as false leaders. We were leaders with mixture who were used in the past. But now, if mixture remains in us, we are as false leaders in the new kingdom paradigm.
In the past the Spirit was with leaders even while there was mixture, but now, in the kingdom preparation season, the Spiritís guidance is pulling away from those with mixture and no longer guiding them. Without the guidance and discernment of the Holy Spirit, they will return to the old style of human devised leadership. Thus, those who have not, even what they have will be taken away (Mat 13:12).
Mixture of religious form and practice is not allowed in the fullness of the kingdom. False leaders are those who lead using Bible words without the true guidance and empowerment of the Spirit. Flee union with leaders who are not following the Spirit. Draw near to God in the Spirit and you will move onward into the kingdom lifestyle. You will not be left behind to die in a wilderness of despair having never fully known the kingdom of God lifestyle in this life.
It is Christ who lives in us and not our own lives. It is the Spirit of God that will lead and guide into the kingdom life, not the strong-willed religionist with many plans and schemes to make life under him look like the kingdom of God.
There are three potential responses to the call to transition to the kingdom of God lifestyle.
The first and best choice is to quickly and willingly lay down our past religious and fallen world ways and allow the Spirit of God to refill us with His new kingdom ways and understandings. This is the most painless way to transition. I am not sure that I have ever known anyone who has really done it this way. Perhaps there has been and will be those who were never religious or worldly, and the first gospel they hear includes the gospel of the kingdom.
The second response involves those who will eventually transition but will suffer through severe adversities and tribulation taking them through fresh brokenness and humility. In this process they will be emptied of their mixture of the past and embrace the fresh guidance of the Spirit into the new paradigm of the kingdom of God lifestyle. Most of us may require some serious tribulations to get through this process. Not everyone will be willing to endure the process.
Acts 14:22: Ö."We must through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God."
The third response is to refuse to transition. This is a very sad thing, but many fathers of the previous move of God are not emptying themselves of the past and, therefore, are unable to move on in the guidance of the Spirit into the new paradigm of kingdom living now. Some will be taken home simply because their earthly job is done and their usefulness has passed. If they remained to continue on without transitioning, they would become a deterrent to what God is now doing.
Again referencing the children of Israel and their journey through the wilderness to the Promised Land, all of the previous fathers who had come out of Egypt died in the wilderness never entering the land except Joshua and Caleb. Even Moses only saw the land from a distance. It was their sons who crossed over and possessed the promised provision of God in the new paradigm.
And again as I wrote earlier in this article, God is now preparing a generation of mature sons (not gender specific)to lead His people into the freedom of the real kingdom of God lifestyle.
Keep on pursuing love. It never fails
and His kingdom never ends.

RELEASED!!!!

 

Put into submission by satans control

Released...and given back what the enemy stole

Feeling their freedom and giving praise to the ONE

The one whoís job is nearly done

Cleaning.. restoring HIS children you see

HIS KINGDOM will be all itís meant to be

Ruling the earth with HIS powerful hand

Speaking HIS heart and we understand

Being all HE wants us to be

Reaching to others as HE sets them free

Embracing them as our precious kin

Bowing with them to Jesus our KING

How wonderful to see HIS KINGDOM grow

To see HIS love and power on show

Touching the hearts and minds of the lost

The things of the world soon lose their gloss

No longer tempting them to be a part

Of the enemies plan right from the start

To have Gods children worship him

To draw them to his way the way of sin

Those put into submission by satans control

 Released...and given back what the enemy stole

Their eyes being opened and now they can see

The path they should walk and how they should be

They now walk the narrow path.. the path of the Lord

And the words that they speak are words they have heard

The words of the SPIRIT to you and me

The words come to pass and thatís how it will be

HIS KINGDOM COME HIS WILL BE DONE

ON EARTH AS IN HEAVEN BY THE HOLY ONE...JESUS!!!!

Ron,

I could not have said it better. It is time for the Holy Spirit to begin to lead us again instead of men. The word of God says: "without me you can do nothing" but men continue to do in the flesh what God wants to do in the spirit. We lack the power of God in our churches today because Man took control and refuse to allow the Holy Spirit of God to move in the way he wants to. They have a form of godliness but no real power is being manifested. It is time for man to step down from their thrones and allow God to take over by his Spirit. I believe that those who refuse to give up their headships are going to be beheaded.

 God bless you Ron for speaking the truth in love.

Thanks Lyn, Kathy and John for your contributions on this word.

Jesus is Saviour, Lord and King of all and is given to be the Head of the church and that is you and me.

Col 1:15-20:  He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.

And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.

And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.

For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell,  and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.

Thank you Father. Amen.

Ron

Ron:

This is a serious word you gave to everyone in the Body of Christ. We need
to know for sure what "spirit" is driving or leading us. There can be no more
mixture. I also got the same warning as John Lawler in that even in the past
spirit led moves of the Holy Spirit, man has taken control and the glory for
himself. Mans name became bigger that Jesus. (Mammon, mixture with
witchcraft, and competition with the anointing can no longer exist).

On a very hot, Southwest Kansas summer day a few years ago, I posed a question to some youth I was mentoring at the time. We had been working outdoors for an extended time and were more than ready for a break. We all got bottles of water, and between gulps I asked them to read the ingredients on their bottles. As they quickly grabbed for another bottle, I asked them if they would drink that water so quickly if one of the ingredients was sewer water. As thirsty as they were, they quickly responded, YES! As they thought more deeply, they shared that as thirsty as they were, they didn't bother to check the ingredients label. Even so, they agreed their thirst overcame any thought of sewer water being mixed in. They assured me they would drink it anyway. As we finished our break, we took the truckload of trash we had collected to the local landfill. As we turned onto the gravel road that led to the landfill, I turned off the truck's air conditioner, rolled down and locked the doors and windows, and parked as close as I could to the "wastewater" treatment facility that adjoined the landfill. The sights and the smells quickly became overpowering. The laughter and joking that had filled the truck only moments earlier, morphed into choking, gasping and gagging. When I was sure that their experience had reached it's limit with no harm, I asked "Bottled water, anyone?"

"What man calls balance I call mixture.  It is not my will for you to live a balanced life.  Nowhere do I ask you to live a balanced life.  The phrase "too heavenly minded to be any earthly good" came from the devil.  For it is My Will that you be consumed by My Love.  It is My Will that you be consumed by My Glory.  It is My Will that you dwell in My Hidden Place and speak words from My Throne.   For I am coming for a people who are totally consumed by Me.  And I am a jealous God.  Your hearts must be consumed by My Love"

Yes, Jeffrey, The Holy Spirit can bring the right position for us to walk in. Walk in the Spirit and you will not fulfill the flesh. No mixture.
