God stopped me as I was finishing an article for this week.
I truly try to hear God and only write what He is saying. Soon I was aware that things had changed and a greater urgency was on the mind of God than I had been aware of a few days ago when I had begun the article.
Certainly, we are in a season of rapid change and apparently, I was about to miss the Word for this moment.
We are now entering a day of very intense and extreme events of The Fire of Heaven coming on earth.
Love never fails. God is Love.
Passionate Love demands response and leaves nothing unchanged behind it.
The passionate Love of God is now moving upon the world and nothing will be left untouched.
All things are beginning to change more rapidly and more deeply than we have ever before known.
Pure Holy Love Invading Earth
All that has gone before has been maturing us toward full grown sons of God perfected in His LOVE.
All our preparatory spiritual and natural gifts and works are now becoming secondary in importance as the greatest gift of all consumes our lives, taking us into the highest realm of the heavens.
“Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.” 1 Corinthians 13:1-3.
All of the misuses and incorrect interpretations of the gifts and works by immature sons and daughters of God are now being corrected by the invasion of God and His LOVE.
All of our mixtures and immature ways are cleansed and replaced with the pure and holy righteousness, peace and joy of God as His LOVE fills our being.
“Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-7.
All things are completed or fulfilled in the perfect love of God that is now invading earth at the highest level.
“Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.” 1 Corinthians 13:8-10.
The Body of Christ Sons of God are growing up into the purified holy New Jerusalem Bride Church by the invasion of The Love of God now taking place on earth in this season.
“When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 12 For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.” 1 Corinthians 13:11-12 emphasis added
When is the “then” in verse 12? It is when LOVE comes.
Today in this immediate season the outpouring and baptism of real love of God are maturing the child of God into becoming a man.
We will no longer speak, think or understand as an immature child.
We are now witnessing the fullness of LOVE from the third heaven doing away with the childish ways and maturing us by His Spirit into the “Man” as Christ on earth.
“And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13.
Faith Hope Love
Heavens in the plural form is often used in scripture instead of heaven in the singular.
Paul spoke of being caught up to the Third Heaven. Heaven has been progressively coming back to earth for over two millennium.
Mankind’s access to the heavens on earth was lost by Adam in the Garden of Eden.
Jesus brought the return of Heaven to earth in the first century. The full provision was made to restore Heaven on earth at The Cross and Resurrection.
The work was finished, yet the dominion given to mankind on planet earth requires man’s agreement for The Manifestation of Heaven on earth to be completed to the whole world.
Man must believe by FAITH and accept the plan and work of God in Christ.
Faith was found only in a relatively small portion of the earth in the disciples of Christ. Yet among them the heavens were experienced on earth but among much resistance. By the third century the darkness had prevailed in the hearts of man.
Faith was the primary characteristic of the first wave of restored heavenly revelation.
A little over five centuries ago the revelation of Faith began to be restored to believers. Salvation through Grace by Faith and not works became the first major wave of Heaven’s return.
As the revelation of Salvation by Faith became accepted many other parts and pieces were being revealed and coming into place.
Hope, is a positive expectation and is the second major wave of Heaven returning to earth.
The second big phase began only a little over a century ago when the baptism in The Holy Spirit began to be restored among the people of God.
Great hope came alive in believers. Biblical hope is not just a “vague perhaps or maybe” good things are coming or that we will be able to live a godly life.
Biblical hope is a positive expectation of great things of God coming forth. Positive expectation of Pope empowered great changes in the things of God on earth and the well being of man with God.
Again, many other revelations moved the Body of Christ through to a greater fullness in the return of Heaven to earth and Christ in man by The Holy Spirit bringing forth The Kingdom of God on earth.
The revelation of positive expectations in The Holy Spirit also met with great resistance but continued to fill the world with the further life of heaven coming to earth in redeemed Spirit-filled believers.
Neither of these two major restorations of heaven coming to earth have been easy or smooth, but have come through significant tribulation from resistance. Many have been martyred or suffered intense persecution.
The greatest wave of The Heavens returning to earth is now coming forth in this world.
This is the greatest single event to happen on earth since the first century. For two thousand years we have been moving toward this moment in the return of the ways and life of Heaven to earth.
Love is the primary characteristic of the Third Heaven and is now manifesting in the lives of God’s chosen believers.
The Love of God flowing through the people of God in whom the life of Christ fully dwells is the manifest presence of Christ in The Holy Spirit depositing the attributes and ways of the Third Heaven on earth.
All the earth must eventually respond to the passionate Love of God. The New Jerusalem Bride pattern ruling city is coming down from The Third Heaven to earth. (Revelation 21).
Great awakenings with many supernatural heavenly miraculous works of God will encourage and provide for the people of God.
At the same time of great turbulence and Tribulation Grace and Glory will be upon those who suffer patiently for doing good.
“If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for The Spirit of Glory and of God rests upon you. On their part He is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified.” 1 Peter 1:14.
“Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” Luke 12:32.
Be made whole in His love,
