Depth of Eternity in Temporal Bodies
By Ron McGatlin
While we go about the surface of temporal living by dealing with the things of temporary natural life in temporary bodies building, cleaning, repairing, gathering and preparing for the needs of this life, there is a far greater and much deeper eternal reality abiding within our temporal bodies.
Amongst the activities of running to and fro busily tending details that seem to have a measure of temporary urgency, there is a call deep within to a far greater and far more significant reality of a supernatural eternal source of ultimate love, peace, power, and wisdom beyond measure a place of placid existence in explosive joy of Spirit that invades the soul and changes who we are in this world. Literally, the life of God in Christ rests in the Spirit reality of eternity within His people.
The eternal being within His people does not walk in subjection to the dictates of this world. Rather the world is in subjection to the eternal being within our temporal bodies. Are we so foolish as to continue to subject that which is above all to the constraints and restraints of fallen world boundaries, bondages of unbelief, doubt, and pride of human intelligence and spirits of darkness?
The gate into the eternal city is accessed within us. We enter the heavenly New Jerusalem lifestyle first in the deep place of the Spirit God connection within into the realm of the Spirit that transcends all space and time of creation.
Love abounds in this eternal place of oneness with God. It is from this place that the substance of the life of God flows out of us unto the world around us. The essence of heaven is carried upon words and melodies that emerge from the depths of God through our temporal bodies. Truly this mortality has been endued with immortality.
Upon the canvas of creation is painted the eternal glory and majesty of God Almighty. The beauties of Gods creation both celestial and terrestrial are as a painting of the beauties of His holiness and magnificence beyond compare that far exceeds all that we could imagine or think.
Yet, He made man in His image and likeness and breathed His precious life into Adam to be a seed of God, to be fruitful and multiply and to have dominion over His earthly creation as stewards of His love and glory on earth.
The seed of God, Christ Jesus the last Adam, is now planted in the fertile and prolific soil of our spiritual hearts restoring us to the original state of creation as redeemed sons of God carrying the Spirit breath of His life to fill the earth with His love and glory.
God does not desire us to be like Christ. He desires to flow the life of Christ to the world through our mortal bodies.
God does not want us to do mighty works for Him. He wants to do mighty works in and through our temporal bodies.
Man has no greater purpose than to be willing and cleansed vessels for the love and glory of God to flow through to bring His life and His ways to change the world from its fallen state to the redeemed glory of God.
He is restoring the painting of creation to its original design and beauty. The living colors and spiritual shapes of redeemed creation of this world will emit the aroma of purity, holiness, and great joy of our Lord.
The Time Has Come
The season of our opportunity to flow the life of God into the redemption and restoration process of this world is very short. For two millennia the seed of Christ has been planted and growing in the hearts of many generations of believers. Through the centuries periods of light and darkness have both grown and refined the process of the seed of Christ in His people. God has patiently worked with His people while creation has continued to groan under the weight of the abuse of the fallen systems of this world and its false religions.
In recent centuries there has been a rapid increase in the revealed light of God that had been slowly building through many generations. At the same time there has been an almost unbearable increase of evil darkness among the ungodly.
The culmination of the maturing of the seed of Christ in mankind is very near. Impartation of the life of God in Christ by the Holy Spirit has in the past century prepared a people to receive greatly increased purity and holiness in the manifested presence of the love of God.
The true gospel of the kingdom is again being received and experienced on earth on a scale not seen since Jesus and His disciples brought it two millennia ago.
The power of God is flowing in His love through His people.
The sounds of heaven are coming to earth with the words and works of His life and Spirit.
Supernatural visions, dreams, and powerful words are flowing directly by the Spirit into purified hearts.
At the same time the ungodly world systems are collapsing and falling apart. The pride of what man has built without God is burning with the corruption of the wicked. There is no hope for the people and the world without God, and many are soon coming to see the absolute futility of their pernicious ways.
The intervention of God has begun. Multitudes of angels are present on earth. The fire of God has come near earth and is beginning to come down in sheets of glory upon areas of the world. Supernatural reality is working with the people of God. As the pure-hearted holy sons become visible in the world there is a manifold multiplied intervention of holy angels working with them to destroy evil and redeem the entire world to the unhindered possession of God in Christ Jesus.
Speak forth the glorious kingdom of God coming forth upon earth now as it is in heaven.
Sing it speak it demonstrate it, but most of all live it now!
It is time to let go of all restraining ropes and break free from all hindering inhibitions. Your light has come upon you in a time of deep darkness upon the world. Shine it forth now or the darkness will consume your light, and it will be passed to another.
Hear and obey. Obedience is much better than sacrifice. Forget religious sacrifice, and step into full and immediate obedience to the leading of the Spirit in the deep place of intimate relationship in His presence upon, within, and around you.
There is always regret in disobedience and procrastination of responding to enlightenment and direction from heaven.
There will never be any regret in full and immediate obedience to the voice of the Lord.
Pursue love, it never fails
and His kingdom never ends.
