Faith without love can become religious tyranny that leads to hopeless strife.
Love without faith can become fluffy weakness that leads to hopeless passivity.
Love and Faith, in and from God is power to order the world in righteousness, peace, and joy, the true hope for the world.
The eyes of the world are on the Americas: North, South, and Central America, but especially on the United States of America – arguably, once the most godly and most powerful nation of the world. A nation that is now being seriously threatened with death by a well-planned and meticulously carried out evil plot of destruction by erosion from within.
The strength of love and faith in and from God that made the United States of America strong with the wisdom and moral fiber that led to great blessings of knowledge and intelligence to serve God and lead the world is under unrelenting attack.
In my now over 83 years of life in the USA with 62 of those years knowing and seeking to serve God, I have witnessed the great dichotomy of this nation into gross darkness and at the same time great light and presence of God Almighty. This deep division of ever increasing light and darkness permeates and is evident in all areas of life. It is probably more blatantly visible today in the political arena. However, it is much more rooted and growing from the takeover of educational systems and mass media.
Freedom is a primary principle of the creation of man
The ability or freedom to choose sets mankind apart from all other created beings. All governments and religions apart from the Kingdom of God are attempts to bring mankind into bondage and to suppress the freedom of the ability to choose by bringing mankind under the headship of another man-made or spirit-made system, thereby reducing mankind to less than sons and daughters of God.
Natural fallen people as mere man differ little from the brute beast of the jungle and because of superior intellect can become the vilest and meanest of all species. Many more human beings are killed by human beings than by any other source. The entire world is threatened by godless man.
Government and Religion
In the atmosphere of a fallen world, government and religion can serve as restraints upon the evil acts of mankind. Strong governments and religious orders can oppress evil and make life better in the jungle type atmosphere of ungodliness. However, they also can oppress godliness and release inflamed evil into the nations causing greater distress and increased darkness upon the people.
Only the government of God, the Kingdom of God within and upon the people of God by Christ Jesus in the Holy Spirit, can bring the insane world into the sanity of righteousness, peace, and joy. Nothing that originates from the natural fallen world can redeem mankind and the world.
“The Kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit,” Romans 14:17.
The Kingdom or rule of God coming down from heaven in the form of the New Jerusalem pattern city of God, the beautiful bride of Christ being formed on earth in the hearts and lives of the maturing sons of God is the way back to the Garden of Eden lifestyle of peace on earth, (Revelation 21 and Galatians 4:26).
The Great Change
The entire way of life from its deepest foundation to the smallest ways of daily life are being turned from its current upside down posture to the right side up way of God that was designed into mankind in the beginning.
Every thought of man is being changed to align with the mind of Christ and the way of God from heaven. Through personal one to One relationship with God in Christ by the Spirit of God, every thought of man will be influenced by Christ within into perfect harmony with the ways of heaven, (2 Corinthians 10:5).
Father God and Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit will be the central reality of every educational system, every governing structure, every business, every family, tribe and nation of the world. The love and faith of the mature people of God on earth will produce life on earth as it is in heaven. The glory of God shall cover the earth. Nothing that lifts itself against God will remain, (Matthew 15:13 and Habakkuk 2:14).
Do not fear the apocalyptic and cataclysmal events of total world change.
Know that it is the beginning of the fully matured Kingdom of God New Jerusalem coming forth on earth. The old must pass away, and the tares must be removed. The evil is overcome with the good of the power of love and faith on earth. Every work that God has not planted will be removed, and all that lifts itself against God will perish from the earth, (Matthew 24).
Only that which is of God shall remain. All creation shall see the brightness of the glory of God manifested on Planet Earth.
The Kingdom of God Seed Generation
You and I are a part of the generations that can now experience the greater fullness of the glory of God within our hearts and lives and with others as we come together. Truly the Kingdom of God is within us and among us as we come together as one with Father God in Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit.
We do not wait to experience the glorious Kingdom of God on earth. It is first in each of His kingdom sons and daughters as the pattern seed of the New Jerusalem life of God abiding within and among us in the true Body and Bride of Christ Jesus on earth, (Luke 17:21).
Indeed, if it is not first in a people, it will not come forth in the world. The good news (Gospel) of the Kingdom is now seeded in pure hearted holy people of God. The coming together of these firstborn kingdom people is the spiritual church of the firstborn, the New Jerusalem gathering with angels, God the Judge, spirits of just mature sons, Jesus the Mediator of the new blood covenant, (Hebrews 12:18-28).
“But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect, to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel,” Hebrews 12:22-24.
This is the time for multitudes of people to experience the dissolution of much of their past religious and secular beliefs. As the earth-changing cataclysmal events alter the world conditions and dissolve much of life as it has been, the true Spirit life of the new earth and the new heavens around earth are coming forth.
NOW is the time to respond to the call of God
The call of the ages is trumpeting forth now. Look up to heaven, to the high and holy place of Spirit life in God; allow the pure holy love of Spirit God to flow into your heart and life, filling your spirit, soul, and body with the warm sweet flow of the liquid fire of God’s love and faith.
Become a new creation as the flesh falls away, the life of the past dissolves, and the pure Spirit life of Christ becomes your only life. The Spirit that raised Christ Jesus from the dead now lives in you to raise up the life of Christ in you to the new world.
By the same process that we become a new creation in Christ, the world and the heavens around the world become a new creation. Just as our old life passed away and we became a new creation, so the entire world becomes a new creation, patterned by the ruling city of New Jerusalem, the city without darkness where God is the light within and upon and among His people, (Isaiah 65:17-25, 2 Corinthians 5:17, Revelation 21:1-2).
The Dry Bones of Religion
Religion including secularism and all the “isms” has become dry bones of long dead skeletons of past promises lost to the poisonous fruit of the tree of human knowledge that is both good and evil, but is not the pure holiness of God in Christ by the Holy Spirit. Every speck of religion in our bones is dead. There is no life in it, and the resulting decay of flesh is very evident in the fallen world.
God is opening eyes to see the rot and the death of religions from the Middle East to the Far East and the Far west. The stench of death has reached heaven, (Revelation 18:5).
The Americas were the stewards of the last promise of the gospel of the kingdom, not just the gospel of being born again, but the gospel of the Kingdom of God being proclaimed to all the world, (Matthew 24:14).
Yes, the dry bones bleached white by the SON, free of all past fallen life can arise to live in pure holy love and faith of God to be the Kingdom of God on earth living the pure life of Christ bringing life on earth to as it is in heaven, (Ezekiel 37).
Prophesy to the dry bones!
“Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! Thus says the Lord God to these bones: “Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live. I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, cover you with skin and put breath in you; and you shall live. Then you shall know that I am the Lord.”’” Ezekiel 37:4-6.
”Also He said to me, “Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.”’” So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army” Ezekiel 37:9-10.
The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord, (Revelation 11:15).
“Do not fear, little flock, for it is the Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom,” Luke 12:32.
