The Key to Ultimate Spirit Rule on Earth
By Ron McGatlin
The once shrouded and somewhat
distant view of the kingdom of God within His people is today quickly becoming
a much more brilliantly shining reality. We as human beings are the only
creatures designed for God to dwell in and equipped to carry out His will and
work on planet earth.
Recently a very good friend
asked me a question by email that set me to seeking God for an answer. The
question involved Jude 1:9: “Yet Michael the archangel, in
contending with the devil, when he disputed about the body of Moses, dared not
bring against him a reviling accusation, but said, ‘The Lord rebuke you!”’
Specifically the question dealt with why Michael didn’t just rebuke the devil himself
rather than saying “The Lord rebuke you!”
We know that angels can have
much more power as created spirit beings sent from God than natural human
beings. Many of us also probably believe that we as believers can rebuke the devil.
At the same time most of us have probably never truly grasped the fullness of
what that really means.
Sometimes revelation is like turning
on a Spirit light in a dark room full of natural understanding and transforming
it into living Spirit kingdom reality. Often for many people including
Christians, the powerful keys to the kingdom of God are covered in a dark
blanket of natural understanding and religious training.
Dear friends, I sincerely
believe that if we truly grasp the depth and meaning of the truth that God is
uncovering today it will release within us and out of us to the world a flood
of the love, power, and wisdom of God to change the world.
ONLY THE LORD HAS ALL POWER TO
REBUKE THE DEVIL.
THE LORD CHRIST JESUS ALIVE ON
EARTH IN HIS REDEEMED PEOPLE HAS TOTAL POWER TO REBUKE THE DEVIL.
The New Creation person receives
the Spirit DNA of Christ Jesus.
The Spirit blood of Jesus by
the indwelling Holy Spirit empowers us as Spirit beings to become as Christ is
in this world. (1 John 4:17). As purified holy mature Sons of God, we
collectively have full authority to rebuke the devil and end His false reign of
terror on Planet Earth. (Luke 10:19) (James 4:7).
This begins with rebuking the devil
in our sphere of influence or measure of rule around us. As we do well in that
limited realm, God will give us larger realms of rule to pour out His love,
power, and wisdom to transform the land to the kingdom of God. (Luke 17:19)
(Mat 25:23). As many Sons mature across the world in every nation, the devil is
rebuked and the kingdom of heaven grows into place. (Heb 2:10) (Rom 8:14).
DO YOU GET IT? The life of the
Lord in us is the only authority on earth to rebuke the devil from the land and
release into this world the pure holy righteous kingdom of heaven ruling and
reigning over the planet bringing peace on earth and goodwill toward man. The
holy angels are empowered and sent by the Lord in us as Christ in us releases
to them authority to destroy evil and release the glory of God upon the earth.
CHRIST IN US EMPOWERS HOLY
ANGELS WITH AUTHORITY TO REBUKE THE DEVIL AND RECLAIM THE WORLD FOR THE KINGDOM
Before Lucifer was cast out of
heaven in the Great War between the rebelling angels and the holy angels of God,
they fought on more or less equal footing or authority. After Lucifer was cast
out of heaven to the earth and became known as Satan or the Devil, he took up
rule on the planet.
Because of God’s covenant word
to mankind, man has authority to rebuke the devil on earth. Without man’s release
and agreement, angels do not have authority to rebuke the devil on earth. Fully redeemed man is the carrier of
the blood of Jesus, the DNA of Christ Jesus, Yeshua Messiah.
Christ Jesus came from heaven,
born as a human being but with the DNA of Heavenly Father and not the fallen
DNA of Adam. After living a perfect sinless life, Christ Jesus shed His blood
on the cross spilling His blood and DNA upon Planet Earth completely defeating
the devil forever.
After the crucifixion He was
raised from the dead, ascended into heaven, and returned in the Holy Spirit to
indwell His people on earth to complete the transformation of the world to its
original design and plan of God, the kingdom of heaven / kingdom of God on
earth as it is in heaven.
Man in Adam had originally
given power to the devil in the Garden of Eden. Christ Jesus defeated the devil
and restored the power and authority of the kingdom on earth to mankind
establishing a better New Covenant in which the Spirit Christ abiding in
mankind is to rule and reign on earth. (Rom 5:17) (Mark 14:24) (2 Cor 3:6).
Now in this day full and
complete authority of God in Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit rests within and
upon the Sons of God on earth to implement the finished work of Christ Jesus of
reclaiming the kingdoms of this world to the kingdoms of our God. (Luke 9:1)
All authority rests in Christ
Jesus, and He abides both at the throne of God in heaven and in His people on
earth. Christ Jesus was Spirit in heaven with Spirit Father God before coming
to earth. (John 1:1-18). After ascending back to the Father, He returned to
earth as promised at Pentecost to dwell within His people in the Holy Spirit of
God. (John 14:23, 28) (John 17:23-26).
Christ in us is the authority
to empower the holy angels to destroy the works of the devil upon the earth.
The angels have the power but lack authority to work on earth without the
release of the authority of Christ in man to fully rebuke the devil on earth. CHRIST
JESUS IN MANKIND, IN HUMAN BEINGS, HAS ALL POWER TO DEFEND AGAINST AND
COMPLETELY OVERCOME THE DEVIL ON EARTH.
MANKIND, HUMAN BEINGS, WITHOUT
CHRIST IN THEM BY THE HOLY SPIRIT HAVE NO POWER TO DEFEND AGAINST OR OVERCOME
There is only one God ordained
authority on earth. Mankind was created to rule and reign on earth for and with
God as obedient sons and daughters of God to fulfill the will and purpose of
God on earth. (Gen 1:26-28) (Gen 2:7).
There are ultimately only two
spiritual forces that can indwell and affect the life and rule of mankind on
earth. One Spirit authority is the true God and creator of all. The other
spirit force is the renegade rebellious principality of Satan the devil, a
fallen angel. Only mankind has the authority to determine which spiritual force
will be released to guide the rule of earth.
There is no such thing as a
neutral or human self-rule apart from one or the other spiritual force setting
the tone and the color of the rule. The spirit of man is incomplete and will
receive another spirit or Spirit that is considered by the person to be
stronger than himself.
The Government of God
The only form of human
government that will ultimately work is one in which Christ Jesus by the Spirit
of God is the head of the government.
No form or style of human
government will work if Christ Jesus by the Spirit is NOT the head of it.
God will not protect
disobedient, once-godly nations that will not return to Him. The hedge of
protection that once protected them from evil forces, that bring harsh
oppression, will be taken away until the nation turns back to God or no longer
exists. Usually there is a godly seed that will remain to restart a godly
God can and will raise up
godly leaders to rebuild the nations that turn to Him with their whole hearts.
Simply stated, God does not
give godly leaders to ungodly people who will not turn. And He does not allow
ungodly leaders to rule over godly people when they turn to God with their whole
hearts. He will make a way of escape to victory and peace. (1 Cor 10:13).
FOR A WAYWARD NATION TURNED
AWAY FROM GOD, GREAT DARKNESS AND OPPRESSION OF DEATH PRECEEDS THE BRILLIANCE
OF RESURRUCTION LIFE.
There is no resurrection life
until there has been a death. For those who come to Christ Jesus and have their
old lives crucified in Him will receive the resurrection life of Christ Jesus
within themselves now in this life. Jesus said, “He who finds his life will
lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find
it,” Matthew 10:39. Paul said, “I
have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the
flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me,”
Enduring the Walk through the
Valley of the Shadow of Death
With the Lord we can walk
through the valley of the shadow of death without fear and actually live in
peace following the Lord Christ Jesus our Good Shepherd within us and among us.
Personally and nationally we
are being changed to rule and reign with Christ in the kingdom of God on earth
as it is in heaven. Like a beautiful jewel we are being reshaped with much cut
away and perfectly polished to become as Christ is in this world, a pure and
clear reflection of the brilliant glory of God. “They shall be Mine,” says the
Lord of hosts, “On the day that I make them My jewels. And I will spare them as
a man spares his own son who serves him,” Malachi 3:17.
“Do not fear, little
flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom,” Luke 12:32.
