1. Starving for Truth
By Ron McGatlin
As it is in the natural, so it is in the spiritual. Natural life is a physical replication of the spiritual realm. What happens first in the spiritual realm is soon manifested into the natural or physical realm.
What we see today is what was thought and spoken in the yesterdays.
Speech comes from thought. Thought comes from inputs, both from natural and spiritual sources. All inputs whether spiritual or natural originate in one of two spiritual realms either God’s truth and light or Satan’s lies and darkness.
God’s truth and light brings life. Satan’s lies and darkness brings death.
Individuals, families, tribes, and nations live or die by the thoughts that abide in the minds and hearts of the people.
The true leaders of this world are those who affect the inputs to the minds and hearts of the people.
The spirit or Spirit from which every thought comes that is implanted by the leaders is either truth or lie and determines life or death to the people and subsequently to the nation.
Life includes abundance of righteousness, peace, and joy that brings true prosperity. Death includes lack, unrighteousness, strife, and sorrow that leads to desolation.
The life and light of God is death to the death and darkness of the enemy.
The death and darkness of the enemy is death to the life and light of God.
THE ONCE CHRISTIAN WESTERN NATIONS ARE CURRENTLY STARVING TO DEATH FOR THE TRUTH AND LIGHT OF GOD.
The educational system and media networks are killing the nations by programing the minds and hearts of the people from the cradle to the grave with lies and darkness.
Yet, like in a blind stupor, many believers continue to drink in the deadly false programs and sacrifice their children to the training monstrosities of teachings from darkness that have captured the educational and media systems of our nations.
AWAKENING TO LIFE AND TRUTH
GOD IS ARISING NOW – THE WRATH OF THE LOVE OF GOD IS KINDLED – THE POWERS OF HEAVEN ARE GATHERED AND ARE COME NEAR THE EARTH.
ROARING FIRE OF PASSION FROM HEAVEN IS EXPLODING IN THE HEARTS OF HUMBLE PEOPLE OF GOD TO ARISE IN THE POWER OF GOD FROM HEAVEN TO DRIVE OFF THE ENEMY AND POSSESS THE PROMISED LAND.
THE FLAMING SWORD OF CHRIST JESUS IS NOW BEFORE THE ARMY THAT IS RISING FROM THE DRY BONES OF THE ONCE SPIRITUALLY DEAD RELIGIONISTS WHO ARE NOW ARISING INTO THE GLORIOUS KINGDOM OF GOD, COMING OUT OF THE BOX TO RULE AND REIGN IN ALL LIFE TO CLEANSE THE NATIONS OF THIS WORLD. THE BEAUTIFUL POWERFUL HUMBLE SONS OF GOD EMPOWERED FROM HEAVEN ARE APPEARING AS IF FROM THE BRIGHTNESS OF THE WHITE FIRE OF GOD’S GLORY.
All of the power of LOVE is released to those appearing from the clouds of glory to transform the ashes of the past world to the beauty of holiness in the glory of God on earth as it is in heaven. (Isaiah 61:3-4).
Let no one think that they shall stand against the glorious power of heaven released through the pure hearts of the people of God arising on earth to meet and greet the myriads of holy angles accompanying the King of Gory. (Rom 14:11).
Lift up your heads, oh, you gates. (Psalm 24: 7-8). For the time is nigh, and the preparation is soon complete. The kingdom of God is at hand. Heaven has come to earth, and nothing shall ever be the same again in the lives of the generation of the Sons of God.
All that God has not built will be thrown down. All that lifts itself against God will be dissolved in the apocalyptic cataclysmic events of the righteous cleansing judgment of the wrath of the love of God. (Isaiah 2:6-18). The love of God is cleansing His people first and then the earth from the evil that has killed the prophets and murdered the children of God. The blood of the slaughtered cries out for the loving cleansing of this world, the world that God so loved that He gave His only begotten Son to redeem.
The glorious kingdom of God and its ruling city, the New Jerusalem, the purified Bride, is now by the Spirit within God’s people on Planet Earth. It is clearly seen and experienced in the Spirit within the people of God in the natural world. The Bride is heavy with the holy Child, the King of kings and the Lord of Lords soon to be manifest into the natural world.
The Holy Bride giving birth to the full grown Son of the living God is the most significant event since Christ ascended to heaven and returned as a life-giving Spirit. (1 Cor 15:45). It is the manifestation of the King of heaven and earth manifesting within and among His Body on earth. The rightful HEAD of all is being fully joined to the shoulders of His Body and of the increase of His kingdom there shall be no end. (Isaiah 9:7).
That which has been done and finished in the Spirit realm is becoming manifested in the natural physical realm on earth to the everlasting brightness of the glory of God. The love of God shall forever remain the increasing presentation of Jehovah God, Father of all, with the magnificence and majesty of the one King Yeshua, Messiah ruler of all, the Head of His all-encompassing Body on earth and in heaven.
The perfect order of God’s beautiful creation on Planet Earth is returning to the Garden of Eden now in the Spirit within God’s people and eventually into every detail from the smallest to the greatest of the planet and all that is upon it. The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdom of our God in the hearts and lives of His chosen people now.
All who are possessed by the kingdom of God within, in turn, possess all that is in their hands or under their feet for the kingdom of God. Thus the rule of King Jesus within becomes the rule of King Jesus outward to the world and the Sons of God rule and reign with Jesus bringing the ways of heaven’s righteousness, peace, and joy on earth as it is in heaven.
Truly He is worthy of our continual praise with all honor and glory to the Lord of lords and King of kings.
Thank you, Father. Thank you, Jesus. We honor and praise you, God, with our every breath. Let all that has breath praise the Lord and give Him all glory forever and ever more. (Psalm 150). He alone is worthy to be praised. Amen!
2. The Spirit of JEHU is Rising!
By Victoria Boyson
Have you looked around you and thought, "What's wrong with everybody?" Have you seen the injustices in the world and wondered, "Why doesn't someone do something about it?" Are you looking at society like the little boy in the story of The Emperors New Clothes, saying "But he isn't wearing anything at all!"
If that's you, understand that God is calling out a gifting He put inside you. He's placed in you the spirit of JEHU and it's rising up inside you calling out for the justice of God!
In the land of Israel, Jezebel and Ahab were literally getting away with murder. Without conscience, they believed themselves to be above God's power to bring retribution against their many offenses. But God saw their sin and His response against them was - Jehu.
Through His prophets, God warned Ahab of the judgment that would come against his entire household because of the death of righteous Naboth (2 Kings 9:26) and Lord's prophets and servants (2 Kings 9:7). Naboth was an innocent man who was targeted by Ahab and Jezebel because he owned a vineyard Ahab wanted and was accused of a crime he didn't commit by Jezebel's lying nobles and subsequently killed.
Corrupted by power, this horrid couple terrorized the true church and attempted to annihilate the prophets of God. Obsessed with themselves, Ahab and Jezebel felt no fear for their actions and would flaunt their rebellion against God by consuming His people. Confidently, they spread their Baal worship as they attempted to subvert the worship of the one true God.
In response to their rebellion, as prophesied, God ordained Jehu to become the new king of Israel and destroyer of the entire household of Ahab!
Indeed, when Jehu was anointed as king of Israel, he was told, "You will destroy the family of Ahab, your master. In this way, I will avenge the murder of my prophets and all the Lord's servants who were killed by Jezebel" (2 Kings 9:7 NLT).
So, the woman who'd seemed invincible and unstoppable, the tyrant of Israel, an overwhelming intimidating figure would be killed just like that. But, surely, since she was seemingly so "all-powerful" it would be difficult to kill her, right?
Without Hollywood dramatics, Jehu went to her palace and as she screamed out her usual disparaging accusations against his character, he paid little attention to her at all. Calling instead to her attendants he cried out simply, "'Who is on my side?' And two or three eunuchs looked out at him. 'Throw her down!' Jehu yelled. So they threw her out the window, and her blood splattered against the wall and on the horses. And Jehu trampled her body under his horses' hooves." (2 Kings 9:32-33).
Just like that… she was gone.
After years of Jezebel's tyranny, she could no longer hurt anyone. She assumed she was invincible and yet, when God decided the time had come for her destruction, she was gone - simply and absolutely.
Hickory Dickory Dock
In 2007 the Lord gave me a word about the Hour of Darkness in which He explained that for some time the enemy would appear to gain a foothold in this world and it would seem that darkness was winning and indeed it would, but, only for a moment. During this time, the Father would uncloak the shroud that had covered the evil growing in our midst all along and, truly, it would be revealed to all.
Earlier this year I sought the Lord for a conclusion of that word. "How would it end?" I wanted to know.
Reminding me of an old nursery rhyme, "Hickory dickory dock. The mouse ran up the clock. The clock struck one, the mouse ran down, Hickory dickory dock" (Mother Goose's Melody 1765), the Lord poured understanding into my spirit through this simple rhyme. He showed me that in the night time hours, the mice or evil of the world feels emboldened by the veil of darkness and, truly, for a few hours it feels it can get away with climbing boldly to the top of the clock where everyone can see it. However, when the clock strikes the hour appointed by God and morning breaks in upon the mouse, he's caught and scampers in fear for his life.
So it will be with our world: the moment of darkness is near ending and the light of the morning is drawing near. The Father is about ready to strike the clock and send His kingdom to dispel the darkness sending it running.
Indeed, Jezebel had her day, and what a day she had. Everyone respected her and feared what she would do or say. She was feared by the prophets of the Lord as she flaunted her worship of Baal and instituted her false prophets in place of the Lord's true prophets. Yet, in a moment, suddenly this fearful woman was gone and all her power and dread was trampled under the hooves of Jehu's horses and dogs ate her body.
What a disrespectful ending for a woman who'd held the world in her hands, making the saints fear her and chasing prophets with her threats. It was, indeed, the hour when God decided her end. It was the moment God swept in and showed His great power to those who thought they were gods themselves, and snubbed their noses at the one true God feeling omnipotent in their arrogance.
Jehu's moment was God's divine justice!
Created by the Father, the world thinks it can snub its noses at its Creator and simply decide to invent their own maker, deciding an accident of creation would be their god. Worshiping themselves, they are blinded by each other looking to humans as though they were divine. Yet, our Father, in His mercy, allows them only so much time to run up the clock, before He reminds them of Who He is!
And that is where we are right now…
The spirit of Jehu is rising amongst the Lord's people. We are no longer living in fear of what people think of us. We've been burned by Jezebel's tyranny and have had our fill of it. Where as before we would have felt overjoyed to even be noticed by the seemingly great and powerful lords of our world, now we see we are the ones who've possessed the power to rule all along. The justice of God has stripped away the veil of humanism that's blinded us to the dangerous path we've trod. Having once been controlled and taken advantage of, we've decided nothing is more important than God's truth.
The beloved of the Lord is opening her eyes and awakening to who she is, who her Father is and how the enemy has taken advantage of her. As she calls out to the Lord for justice, He moves swiftly to her aid and casts out those who would be her captors and tormentors. Once again God sets her on the throne He's prepared for her, convincing her of the beauty she alone possesses and of the kingdom she must rule.
Indeed, my friends, the spirit of Jehu is rising… in YOU!
