Manifest Love of God is Purifying

Ron McGatlin

True holiness begins with the love of God melting the hearts of men. The roots of submission and obedience are found in the heartfelt desire to please God created in response to experiencing His overwhelming love.

The cooperation and cohesiveness of the church flows from the experience of being in love with God. The substance of Christ is formed within men's hearts and flows out to the connecting joints of the Body of Christ.

The kingdom of God on earth from heaven is glued together as one by the experience of the all consuming unending immeasurable love of God flowing by the Holy Spirit. Walking in the Spirit produces walking in the love of God.

Walking in the experience of the love of God causes us to hate sin and empowers us to turn from sin and carnality toward the purity and holiness of God. What we could not do by trying to do right is done by the indwelling power of the overwhelming love of God.

One Body attached to one Head has always been the plan of God.

But you say, "I don't see it that way in the church now." To the degree that there is not yet the experience of the manifest love of God in the church there is division and competitive strife.

Denominations continue to name themselves according to their differences and divide from one another according to knowledge and not according to the Spirit. Renewal / revival of the manifest presence of God in recent decades is the beginnings of a generation of change - a people of maturity in God - a people who love God and seek His kingdom and righteousness first above all else.

Personally speaking, I do not know how much of the fullness of this will be realized in the years I have left here. The reality of fullness of the love of God reforming the church into the desire of God is in the youth - in the children who are growing up in the manifest presence of God and are naturally being trained in the supernatural reality of the manifest presence God.

Today is the day of the restoration of apostolic fathers to guide the children of this generation into the New Jerusalem kingdom of God church - the "Christ in you" glorious Body of Christ on earth.

Fathers must lead their children into the manifest presence of God and let them remain there. God will mold and shape them by His Spirit and the Word shall be in their mouths to turn a renegade world toward transformation into the glorious rule of God on earth as it is in heaven.

The children must go far beyond the ways of the past into a season of reflecting the glory of Christ flooding the whole earth with the glory of His love and power.

God will have His people moving as one Body on earth as it is in heaven.

Pursue love, it never fails.

Shouting for Freedom!

Charles D. Chalson

I've met too may Christians who are in bondage to an evil, religious spirit. Most have no desire to be set free. Most do not even recognize that they are not free. Some do sense that they are not free. Sadly, their desire to be free is not great enough for them to break free of the control.

I'm looking for men and women who are shouting for freedom. I want to hear their voices. I'm waiting to hear the sound of the warrior who is shouting to be set free.

I'm listening for the sound of the one who shouts, "Choose me, God! Train me to be the warrior; the soldier that you want me to be!"

I need to hear agony and desperation in the voice of the oppressed. I'm weary of hearing the pitiful and fearful reluctance to rise up and fight. The one in bondage must ache to be set free. To remain submissive to slavery is to be dead. To become alive and free must be the yearning of the heart. To fight for one's freedom, and the freedom of others, must be the destiny that's written on the heart.

God is raising up an army - to fight the fight for freedom!

The Glory of the Latter

by Daniel Black

Hag 2:9 MSG "'This Temple is going to end up far better than it started out, a glorious beginning but an even more glorious finish: a place in which I will hand out wholeness and holiness.' Decree of GOD-of-the-Angel-Armies."

Hag 2:5-9 Webster "According to the word that I covenanted with you when ye came out of Egypt, so my spirit remaineth among you: fear ye not. (6) For thus saith the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; (7) And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts. (8) The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts. (9) The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts."

Holy. Holy. The Lord has made a covenant with this Generation. I have made a Covenant with you O generation of Jacob. Be ready for I am shaking Heavens and I am shaking the world and I am shaking nations and I am shaking individuals. There is nothing that will stand in MY way, says the Lord. This House, My Temple will be great. No longer will you be the ridicule of the nations, no you are My royalty, holy. And what I have empowered you with, what I am sending you out with is this. For I Am a burning Fire, burning with holy love and jealousy for the nations, how I want you. Come to Me. Come to Me.

I see. I see. My children, you want revival, you want renewal, you want change, so go and do it. I have empowered you. The GLORY of the Latter is greater than the former! The GLORY OF THE LATTER HOUSE IS GREATER THAN THE FORMER. Go out. Change the world. I have empowered you. I see you. I see you. I see you. I see you. This is MY decree to the nations. You are shaking them up. You are shaking them up, they might persecute you, but you have shaken them O daughter of Zion. You want revival, I see, well get bold. Gert bold. Go out. Nothing gets accomplished if you do not act upon the empowerment I have given you. The same Spirit that rested upon Elijah, Elisha, John the Baptist and Peter is resting on you. Is not Mine the treasures of this world? Don't worry how to do it, just do it. I have told you, and I will teach you. I do and I teach. Go out., The GLORY OF THE LATTER HOUSE IS GREATER THAN THE FORMER. GREATERT, GREATER, GREATER, GREATER!!! I Am shaking the nations! I Am shaking the nations. I Am a Consuming Fire. Don't get in My way.

My GLORY is the essence of My being! My very ESSENCE is found in My Glory, cry out for it! FOR THE GLORY OF THE LATTER HOUSE WILL BE GREATER THAN THAT OF THE FORMER!
Get My heart.

Take time to be Holy

Ras Robinson

Take time to be holy even as I am holy. When you were born again I made you to be holy in your inner man, your spirit. I gave you a new spirit, My Holy Spirit. That part of you was totally transformed. Since your conversion I have been transforming your mind and soul. It is important that you live as I have made you to be – holy. To be holy means that I have sanctified you and separated you unto Me. You are holy purely because of My work and none of yours. And yet I say unto you today, live a holy life in accordance with the Holy Spirit Who lives within you. Let Him glorify and magnify the Holy One, even Jesus through your life. Take time to be holy even as I am holy.

1 Peter 1:14-16 "As obedient children, do not be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your ignorance, but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior; because it is written, "You shall BE HOLY, FOR I am HOLY."

Desert Preparation

by Os Hillman

Nor did I go up to Jerusalem to see those who were apostles before I was, but I went immediately into Arabia and later returned to Damascus. ~ Galatians 1:17

The apostle Paul tells us in the first chapter of Galatians some of the facts surrounding his own conversion. He tells us that he clearly understood the call Jesus placed on his life.

He did not have to consult other men about this calling. But before he was released to begin his own mission, He went to Arabia for three years. Why did Paul have to go to Arabia for three years before he ever met another disciple of Jesus Christ?

The Scripture does not tell us plainly why Paul spent three years in Arabia. However, based upon many examples of God placing special calls on people's lives, we know it often requires a time of separation between the old life and the new life.

No doubt, Paul had plenty of time to consider what had taken place in his life and time to develop an intimate knowledge and relationship with the newfound Savior. His life was about to change dramatically.

So often, when God places a call on one of His children, it requires a separation between the old life and the new life. There is a time of being away from the old in order to prepare the heart for what is coming. It can be a painful and difficult separation. Joseph was separated from his family. Jacob was sent to live with his uncle Laban. Moses was sent to the desert.

When God began a deeper work in my own life, it required a separation from all I had known before. He removed all that I had placed confidence in up to that point. It was very painful and very scary since I was in my mid-40's.

In my mind, it was not the time to start life over. I had been making plans for early retirement. God had a different idea. He removed all my comforts and security in order to accomplish a much greater work than what I could see at the time. The picture is clear now. I understand why it was necessary, but I didn't at the time.

Perhaps God has placed you in your own desert period. Perhaps you cannot make sense of the situation in which you find yourself. If you press into God during this time, He will reveal the purposes He has for you. The key is pressing into Him.

Seek Him with a whole heart and He will be found. God may have a special calling and message He is building in your life right now. Trust in His love for you that He will fully complete the work He has started in you.

Victory Assured

A. W. Tozer

Then Jacob was left alone; and a Man wrestled with him until the breaking of day. Now when He saw that He did not prevail against him He touched the socket of his hip; and the socket of Jacob's hip was out of joint as He wrestled with him. --Genesis 32:24-25

The enemy never quite knows how to deal with a humble man; he is so used to dealing with proud, stubborn people that a meek man upsets his timetable. And furthermore, the man of true humility has God fighting on his side--who can win against God?

Strange as it may seem we often win over our enemies only after we have first been soundly defeated by the Lord Himself. God often conquers our enemies by conquering us.... When God foresees that we must meet a deadly opponent, he assures our victory by bringing us down in humbleness at His own feet. After that, everything is easy. We have put ourselves in a position where God can fight for us, and in a situation like that, the outcome is decided from eternity.  We Travel an Appointed Way, 14.

"Lord, help me to submit willingly to You, in complete humility, without struggle or wrestling. Then You fight for me against my strong enemy. I'll rest-and revel-today in Your victory. Amen."
