Many Operations – One God – One Goal
By Ron McGatlin
The diversity of God is endless, and His works beyond numbering.
The innumerable facets and immeasurable diversities of the works of God all come together and perfectly fit into place in the plan and purpose of God. God has a purpose for Planet Earth and has called each of His people on earth to have a part in His purpose.
Our first job or purpose on earth is to be ordered and empowered by God in Christ by the Spirit. Only as we live by the Spirit and walk in the Spirit can we know and fulfill our jobs or parts in the purpose of God.
The purpose of God on Planet Earth involves the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. It involves all things coming together in the kingdom of Christ Jesus and returned to the Father. The kingdoms of this earth returned to the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ (Rev 11:15).
Transitioning from where we have been
In the passing religious church emphasis age, it was generally believed and taught through practical experience and actions, if not by doctrine, that the purposes of God primarily were defined in the ministerial and benevolent works of the local church.
Working at a job or profession or operating a business was outside the work of the ministry and most useful in providing for the individual families and for bringing tithes and offerings to the local church or ministry. It was actually considered as bringing gifts to GOD when giving money to the local religious church organizations.
Sadly, most of the daily lives of the people were outside and away from the local church and therefore were not really a part of the call and purpose of God. Rather they were something that was necessary and a burden that had to be done to sustain life. Most often occupations were considered by the religious community as a necessary part of life in the world but outside of the works of God.
Religious church institutions separated themselves ideologically from one another and from all of the institutions of this world. The separation of church from the governing institutions of life allowed the birth of a brand of godless secular ideology that embraced not the true God but tolerated any and all religions or gods. Secularism led to rule by the people regardless of their religion and eventually became godless governance called democracy that unwittingly elevated humanism as god.
Religious church systems and godless secular governments are inherently weak and will fall into the hands of passionate tyrannical forces of darkness.
The failing of the past is a step toward the establishment of the future.
The end of religious system and godless secular governance is at hand for the western world of today.
Transitioning to Kingdom
The kingdom of God is the government of God on earth as it is in heaven. It is the rule of Christ with His people on earth. All power, all wisdom, and the perfect love of God flowing through the Spirit of God guiding and empowering the reign of God in Christ in His people upon the earth.
There is no such thing as separation of life activities into religious or secular in the kingdom. All of life is one in fulfilling the purpose of God. There is one King and no secular democratic rule by the people. All will be willing volunteers moving in the love of God in full obedience to the desires of His heart. Christ in His people will bring forth the glory of God in all aspects of life on the planet. There will be no more religion or religious strife. Life will be ONE in GOD.
Our greatest work and warfare is now. It is finding our part in the Spirit bringing about this transition that transforms this world to the kingdom of God. Every child of God has a part in this transition that began two millennia ago in Christ Jesus and has now greatly accelerated in this current season.
Understanding that God’s kingdom on earth involves all aspects of life opens the way to seeking and finding God’s provision of direction and empowerment to accomplish every job, work, or occupation to provide for the needs of mankind and the world around us.
As stewards of the earth and suppliers of life needs to one another, there are multiple variances of jobs or works to be done. All of these works are divinely ordered by the Spirit of God and cannot be separated from the true kingdom of God – all are vital parts of the rule of Christ on earth.
The great overall job before us today is to be a part of moving this world from its past state of God in a box and natural man’s intelligence and desires ruling everything outside the box, to the full rule of God in Christ by the Holy Spirit in His people ruling in every aspect of life on earth.
Mature kingdom sons are being formed and equipped by the Spirit to serve God in reclaiming every field of endeavor in the kingdom. The love of God releasing the power of God in every work of life will cause the people of God to be super producers and greatly effective in what they are called to do. God in His people will become the sustaining strength to do the best work and bring forth the greatest creative ideas from God to achieve the most effective works to meet the needs of mankind and the world.
Thus, through the awesome loving people of God, He will be returned to and fully involved with education, business, governments, and every aspect of life. All of these aspects will change from competitive ungodly secular or religious systems to the cooperative love based kingdom of God reality. Now in this day there must be a kingdom people prepared to serve in every area of governance in this world. To continue on today as it was yesterday is not the plan of God today and will produce only lack and disorder. It is not acceptable to remain where we are when God moves onward to a new and greater place.
The hearts and minds of the people must be renewed to the ways of God. The end of the past has come and none shall survive that will not move with the spiritual cloud and pillar of fire of God that is leading us as it led the children of Israel through and out of the wilderness.
Now is the time to move out of the wilderness and fully embrace the journey of God into the fullness of the kingdom of God.
It is fully time to step out into the calling of life God has given to each of us. Become educators of the people. Become business providers of all areas of human and world need. Become true governance of God for the people.
Carry the Spirit of Christ in you into every area of life that you touch. Step out as God leads without concern for your flesh or the concerns of those who do not understand your mission of the kingdom. Hear the Spirit of God clearly, and move with His instruction for you. True leaders are humble sons who are willing to give their bodies as a willing sacrifice for the work of bringing forth the kingdom of God in whatever sphere God opens to us.
This is the day to move out of the trenches in offensive loving life endeavors. Don’t just stand up and be counted; stand up and move out to carry the kingdom of God to a perishing world. We only have this one opportunity to become the work of Christ on earth.
Christ in you the hope of glory, now!
Keep on pursuing love. It never fails
and His kingdom never ends.
