Pure Holy Love and the World
By Ron McGatlin
The Holy Ghost is invading the innermost being of kingdom of God seeking men and women with a spiritual presence imparting His pure holy love. This undercover supernatural spiritual invasion is out of sight to those who are still blinded by the darkness that is upon the world.
We were blessed over the past two weekends to have been a part of two different gatherings where there was a corporate expression of the reality of the Holy Ghost invasion of love. In the gathering this past weekend, there was a somewhat mixed group. Some had heard but had not yet experienced the reality of the current Holy Spirit love invasion coming into the hearts of people today.
Some who were at the gathering were seeing the failing of the cultures and subsequently the nations and their governments and were truly seeking answers. Some desired to see and experience the inner work of the invading Holy Spirit that they had been reading about. Answers came from around the room in the form of prophetic words of wisdom and spiritual understanding.
There were also a few bumps in the Saturday morning and afternoon portions of the gathering. This is not uncommon when fresh spiritual depth is being poured out among the people.
Jesus served the best wine last.
The evening portion of the gathering was one of the most glorious times of the presence of God that I have experienced in this fresh season of the new day of God. Pure prophetic words of encouragement and strengthening flowed around the room, releasing strong confirmation in perfect accuracy as testified by those receiving.
Near the end of the gathering, the presence of God was so resting upon us and the impartation of the pure holy love so filling us that perfect peace seemed to reign over and around us as well as within us. I heard the voice of God speak clearly in my spirit, “This is what the Holy Ghost invasion looks like, and this is what it feels like.” I knew that I was to speak that out loud into the silence of the room.
Some who are reading this may yet be thinking and wondering, Is this really real? Is it really happening? Is this really the emerging of a new day of the kingdom of God from heaven coming forth on earth? Let me share with you one way that we can and will know if we are experiencing this everlasting and never-ending move of the Spirit of God imparting pure holy love changing the people from the inside out. Not only will the glory manifest and the tangible spiritual presence of love rest within and around, there will also be another sure sign: there will be testing. The enemy will come quickly to test the reality.
Love is not truly perfected (mature) until it is tested. The magnitude of the test will be in proportion to the impartation of pure holy love received. If there is no testing and tempting to seek to draw us away or cause us to push back against the source of the testing, then there probably was little or no fresh impartation of pure holy love. After an experience of a glorious encounter in a gathering, the tester will probably meet us in the hallway on our way out to test the reality of the impartation. If we pass that first test, then probably by the second morning he will be knocking at our door or ringing our cell phone.
One purpose for the test is to prove the love impartation. By the fresh holy love within, we quickly forgive and both feel and express the love of God for the person or people sent to deliver the test, then we know the love is real. In addition the love grows both stronger and deeper through the testing.
There is probably not maximum strength in the testing if the substance of the test does not involve either people who we love or the very core of our most treasured spiritual gifts from God. Yes, those near us who we love and have sought to serve and the most beautiful gifts and revelations from God will be the source or substance of the testing. The tests are most effective when the good people in our life bring the offense toward the works of God in us and are betraying us and even seeking to destroy what God is doing in and with us. All the while they may actually believe that they are trying to help us.
The test is completed when we move right through the circumstances without any ill feelings toward the person or people involved in the test – when the peace and joy of the Lord is not disturbed in us at all. The loving presence of God is so much more than any person or spirit can come up with. The slanderous or incriminating words roll right off our backs like water off a ducks back. Honestly, sometimes it may take me overnight to fully get past the issue, but most times it is finished before I lay down to sleep. These are times when a precious brother or sister can be of the most value with an encouraging word.
Pure holy love is the most powerful substance in the world.
Often the lost and poor of the world are drawn by both the pure holy love and the power of God to meet their need. Even most animals of the world will respond to the gentleness of the pure love of God. Even bears, lions, and tigers have been known to respond to the presence of the love and gentleness of God and have literally become tame and affectionate.
It is through love that power and wisdom flow into the hearts of the “poor in spirit.” Those who are of a prideful haughty spirit cannot perceive the pure holy love of God and will usually interpret it as something else. Often leaders with a religious pharisaical spirit may fear the person filled with the pure holy love of God. They may see them as a threat to their position or to their religious doctrines and rules. Pure holy love can even be perceived by them as rebellion against them and an attempt to take over their place of authority because the people are drawn to the love and may tend to gather around the person carrying love.
God’s pure holy love is not like the human type of love that is a socially and religiously correct desiring of one another to fill our own needs or programs. The game is to be kind and giving enough to get the relationship, money, or affection needed to satisfy my need and my wants. It is a giving to get type of pseudo love. Religious and business people understand this type of human false love. However, they may not understand pure holy love that requires nothing in response but remains alive and passionate even in the midst of persecution or serious injustices. This is the love of God that is being imparted by the Holy Spirit.
Freely you have received, freely give.
The Holy Spirit filling of pure love cannot be bought. However, we must willingly come into a position of seeking the kingdom of God and His righteousness. Our hearts must be open and available to receive the work of Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit. I was recently asked what would enable a person to be available to receive the fullness of the work of the Holy Spirit. In practical experience it seems to me that most often it requires coming into a place of brokenness – a place of having the veils of religion and self-sufficiency of our hearts torn usually by traumatic experiences.
To a degree the love is contagious. Associating closely with people who are infected by the Holy Spirit love tends to spread it like a virus. However, it is always a sovereign work of the Holy Spirit.
The love of God flows freely from us as it flowed freely into us. Mostly we just get out of the way and let God love those who have made themselves to be as our enemies. There is no fear in love. Perfect (mature) love casts out all fear.
No one person or group has exclusivity on the pure holy love from God. There is no elite class of people. There is no special spot on earth that one must go to receive it. This love cannot be taught or produced by a formula. This is not new; it has been around since Pentecost. However, there is a fresh spiritual flood of ministering spirits (holy angels) releasing the fire of God in this season. The fire of God seems very near and ready to move in and among God’s people very smoothly and quickly.
If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit – Gal 5:25.
Live in the Spirit, Walk in the Spirit,
