Spiritual Reality in Natural Bodies

By Ron McGatlin

Our natural human bodies are of this world, literally made of the dust of the earth. Spirit God fashioned the elements of the earth into a super intricate design of a living functioning mobile house in which our spirits and His Spirit can dwell. We are spirit beings who inhabit a fascinating body with an intelligent sensitive soul that functions seamlessly between the body and our human spirit providing a place for the Spirit of God to abide and function in this world.

There is no other creature on earth with this intricate design. Only mankind is created to house the Spirit of God on earth. Not only is the human being designed to house the Spirit of God, it also is the living vehicle through which God implements His desired works upon the earth.

As the Spirit of Christ becomes one with our human spirit, Christ becomes the head of our entire spirit, soul, and body. The Spirit of God in us connects directly with the throne of God to receive spiritual guidance and empowerment from heaven into our human spirits. Our human spirits then impart the endowment from God into our souls enlightening our minds, wills, and emotions and in turn motivating the body to carry out the works of God from heaven into the world. Thus God rules on earth through His sons.

Heaven> (Spirit God> spirit of man>) soul of man> body> works of God> world

The holy angels, powerful ministering spirits, are tuned to receive directions from God in concert with the expressions of Godís will through sons of God. The powerful angels working with man implement the will of God on earth. Nothing in this world that God says by His Spirit is impossible. All things are possible in His obedient sons. There is nothing more for God to do to fix all the disorder on planet earth than that which is already in place and ready to be released to function in the world.

The Bad News

Perhaps the most horrible thing on earth is that man has disrupted this perfect arrangement that God has provided to bring His glad tidings and great joy to all the earth. The world and all of the systems on earth, both natural and spiritual are skewed by this dreadful breakdown between Spirit God and His glorious creation on Planet Earth.

Even though Christ Jesus has, at the cross, completely provided for the repair of the breach, man for the most part has stubbornly clung to an independent life of separation from the Spirit of God. The spirit of man has been substituted for the Spirit of God to impart into the soul of man to inspire, direct, and motivate the works of the body.

Without God at the helm, man himself functions as his own god and expresses his own godless ways upon the world. The enemy spirits of evil fallen angels and demons soon replace the Spirit of God as head over the spirit of man, and the world becomes a place of literal hell on earth. The works of the tree of good and evil are brought forth through the spirits of darkness working through the spirit, soul, and body of mankind to destroy the works of God on earth.

The Really Great News

Speaking as mankind, we are coming to the end of our ways, and many are turning to Godís ways. Many are turning their lives over to Christ. Thus Christ is returning to abide as head in our spirit-beings that abide in our natural bodies. The souls of many are being brought into sweet harmony and victory of the rule of Christ within by the Holy Spirit.

False gods and evil spirits are being dethroned from the spirits and souls of men by the Spirit of Christ in the Holy Spirit.

The spirit of man becoming one with the Spirit of God is restoring the perfect order of God in our spirits, souls, and bodies allowing us to begin to express Godís perfect order to the world around us. Thus the hell on earth can be dissolved and heaven can again rule on earth as it did in Adam before the fall.

This may sound as an oversimplification, yet it is the foundational reality of the kingdom of God coming forth on earth.

Our Part in the Kingdom

We have now moved into an urgent season of transformational upheaval and re-posturing. It is perhaps more urgent that we move as quickly as possible into the part or position God is calling us into than it has ever been.

Finding our new place in the changing world begins with becoming one Spirit with God, enabling our souls to be fully enlightened and led by the Spirit of God. Only then will our souls clearly hear direction from God that will move us quickly into our place and empower us from on High in cooperation with powerful angels to effectively step into fulfillment of our part in the extreme season of worldwide change.

We will not all have the same part to fulfill. The assignments are many and varied and only coordinated by the Spirit of Christ in the Holy Spirit within His people. Some will work on the deep spiritual foundational portion of the kingdom. Others will work on the many and varied practical outworking of the kingdom life in the natural world. There is no division and no separation; all work in love accomplishing their God-given and God-empowered function. Every part and portion is vitally needed in the Body of Christ as maturing sons of God brings forth the transformation of this world to the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.

Working from the Soul

Much of what has been done in the passing church systems has been done with the good intention of doing something for God. However, it was actually done from the soul without the Spirit of God guiding and empowering. Much of denominationalism and other independent and apostolic church works have been designed and function primarily by the ingenuity and power of the human soul instead of the Spirit of God.

Perhaps the first clue is that God does not want us to do things for Him. He wants to do things in and through us. A second clue might be the fact that the works do not build the kingdom of God but tend to build kingdoms of men. The soul (mind, will, and emotions) of man can build some awesome monuments to himself that look good for a season but will soon end in corruption.

One of the most important areas of discernment is to discern the works and operations we see in us and around us as to whether they are truly the works of God by His Spirit or the works of the souls of men without God. Often in reality there is a mixture which become very dangerous and usually harder to discern. It is important to receive that part of the mixture that is from God and reject that which is not without necessarily rejecting the person.

The primary need for discernment is within us and among us. The soul of man can come up with some good ideas and solutions. However, good is not necessarily of God from the tree of life. Both good and evil come from the tree of knowledge but leads to death and not life. Partaking from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil is tantamount to figuring things out for ourselves. Partaking from the tree of life is hearing God clearly by the Spirit and obeying in timely order. HEAR AND OBEY. Hear in your spirit by the Holy Spirit and obey, and you will be in exactly the right place at the right time doing the right thing.

The soul can learn to mimic the works of the Spirit and can be empowered by the enemy to produce counterfeit works that look much like the real. One thing the enemy and the soul without God can never produce is true LOVE that leads to self-sacrifice for others. Real selfless love comes only from God who is love. Follow the real love, and you will seek before all else His kingdom and His righteousness.

Keep on pursuing love.
It never fails.

Thank you Shawn, Tere, and Gayle for your agreement and comments. This is indeed another extreme but exciting time. It is another opportunity to be still and see the glory of our God. As one season passes away a new season opens before us. The Fall of 2012 is a pivotal time of Change into not only a new season but possibly a new era of the sons and daughters of God maturing into who God has designed us to be, humble, pure, holy and quietly powerful carriers of the light and life of Christ Jesus and His kingdom by the Holy Spirit. The kingdom of God is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

Ron

 Amen Ron ,

 We must also intercede now more than ever for others to enter into their purpose and callings and for the body to come together "AS ONE" !

 The gifts are given according to our faith and it was accounted to Abram as righteousness for believing what The Lord God spoke to him about his offspring and then God breathed his breath into him again and he became AbraHAm a new creation in Christ !

 Its not that we do not have all the gifts in us for we carry his fullness but it is our faith that activates them to their full potential ! Just as the story of the Talents shows us !
