All the great Revivals of the past and all outpourings of The Holy Spirit experienced on earth are exceeded by that which is the greatest of all, the love consummation of Spirit God with mankind.
Jesus and His Bride, becoming one in pure holy love is beyond description.
It is a rapturous spiritual manifestation of the presence of God pouring His pure holy love into our hearts and upon every part of our life and being.
It is an all-consuming fire of love that changes everything. Our hearts are melted and life’s purpose becomes to be always and forever in love with Him.
We are engulfed with great peace, and joy of His love for us and our love for Him. Our heart’s desire is to please Him. Obedience to His Will and desires becomes the deepest desires of our hearts.
Thus, we become His purified Bride birthing mature sons and daughters as the supernatural marriage produces the army of God to change this world to “as it is in heaven.”
There is nothing we will not do for Him and nothing we would not give up or trade for being one with Him in His loving presence.
The Spirit reality of the individual personal love experience of God in Christ Jesus becoming one with you and me is the greatest and most glorious experience ever. It is far beyond all previous revivals and outpourings of recent history.
Having experienced at some level many of the most recent Revival moves and Holy Spirit outpourings and by hearing about and studying the historical revivals of past centuries, my heart desperately longs to experience the fullness of this now greater manifesting love move of God.
Beyond Born Again and Spirit Filled
The Revivals and moves of God over the past several centuries have been a progressing revelation of God’s plan and purpose for mankind. They have been the restorative preparation for the consummated love relationship between God and mankind.
The Spirit-to-spirit and face-to-face relationship of Adam and Eve with Father God was lost in the fall of Adam, and restored in the First century at Pentecost.
After The Cross, Resurrection, and Ascension of Christ, at Pentecost, The Holy Spirit came to abide in mankind bringing the Spirit reality of Christ Jesus to live in mankind. (Acts1:4-8, 2:40-47).
This remarkable truth of the filling of The Holy Spirit and the miracle-working power of Christ in the disciples was later lost to The Church.
The Church was restructured and became a mixture of man’s governance in the third century. The Holy Spirit then pulled back from The Church System and was replaced with teachings of man and doctrines of demons mingled with truth that became traditions of man. (1 Timothy 4:1-2).
The Baptism or filling of The Holy Spirit returned to believers in the revivals of the early years of the twentieth century and rapidly spread across the world.
By the latter years of the twentieth century, a major Holy Spirit outpouring occurred that led to the returned recognition of the manifest presence of God with His people, the love of the Father, and the beginnings of the restored revelation of the reality of The Kingdom of God on Earth in this life.
The first quarter of the twenty-first century is bringing forth the reality of falling in love with God and abiding in heaven on earth in the presence of God with His manifested glory by The Holy Spirit.
Spirit is Greater Than Natural
Spirit is the Father and Mother of natural existence and time. Time is one dimension of creation created by the Spirit God Almighty. All things exist by the will and power of God. God is Spirit. God is the creator and sustainer of all existence. (Galatians 4:26, Revelation 4:11, John 4:24).
As redeemed sons and daughters of God, we are Spirit beings created in the image of God, in natural bodies, and can live in either the natural or the spiritual realm.
To live in the Spirit is much greater than living in the natural. As man abides in the Spirit outside of time and natural existence, we can work to bring the things of this created world into alignment with the design and the timing of the eternal Spirit God from heaven.
In the Spirit, we can commune with God face-to-face and eye-to-eye. We can see and hear much more about any situation in the spirit realm than we can in the natural.
We can commune with God as sons or daughters of Father God. In love with God, all things are possible to us with God.
“But as it is written: ‘Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.’ But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.” 1 Corinthians 2:9-10
Beginning and End — Then and Now
Which is greater the sprouting apple seed or the mature tree full of fruit?
Both are equally required. However, the finished matured product of the fully fruited tree is much greater.
So also, the greatness of the bodily works of Jesus with His disciples at the beginning is an awesome seed planted into this world.
So, what is the mature end fruit of that seed planted into the earth? It is many sons and daughters of God bringing forth the life and ways of God in Christ Jesus on earth. (Hebrews 2:10).
This is the answer to the prayer of Jesus and to the model prayer He gave us to pray. This is The Kingdom of God coming to earth as it is in heaven. (Matthew 6:10, John 17).
It is the fulfillment of the ministry of Christ Jesus, the redemption and restoration of mankind to the fully grown Sons of God, fully establishing The Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.
It is the reality of Father God and King Jesus abiding with and in mankind now in this life and eternity.
Our Call to Volunteer
Love is Here and Heaven is Open Now!
Intensified love will not be contained. Every dam, levy, or wall attempting to contain or restrain the omnipotent love of God is now failing and very soon will be washed away forever.
The flood of the loving GLORY of Father God and King Jesus leading the many Sons of God riding upon the supernatural horses of heaven’s power moves upon this world dissolving all that is not of God is just ahead of us now.
The Runaway Train
The people of this world are riding as a passenger on the high-speed natural runaway train of the finest design of man’s evil-inspired engineering of perversion and distortion of the provisions of God that is gaining speed down the mountain of life.
The tragic wreck of the world has been barely avoided several times as the quick engineering skills of mankind have made it around curves in the mountainous track.
Within sight ahead a much more severe curve is before us. The train has continued to increase in speed and there is no possible way for mankind to engineer the way of the massive speeding train around this severe curve in the track. In other words, the wreck of all ages is in sight and the train is rapidly approaching it.
There is no possible way for man to safely get off the train at this point. To jump off the train is certain death and to stay on it as it plummets off the high mountain cliff is the same fate. There is no human way to continue to live.
Supernatural Spirit reality will deliver us and greater life in the Spirit is within us now. We are being transformed into supernatural Spirit life with God.
The Miracle of Spirit Transformation
The miracle of Spirit transformation from natural to Spirit can happen in a moment in the “twinkling of an eye.” This mortality must put on immortality. Our dead spirit must become alive.
The natural man without God has only a human-animal type spirit. Our human-animal-like spirit is not alive unto God and is impervious to the Spirit realm or the Spirit enlightenment of God.
It is firmly attached to and feeds on the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
The human-animal type spirit is a godless spirit and is under death. Characteristics like striving, self-survival, sickness, disease, self-centeredness, lust, and much more are normal aspects of the natural human animal-type spirit.
The Spirit of God is life eternal and abundant.
When The Holy Spirit God enters our being through the redemptive work of Christ Jesus, we receive a life-giving Spirit along with our old animal-type spirit. (1 Corinthians 15:45).
Our new Spirit is of God and often contrary or different to our natural animal spirit.
We now have the option of walking in the Spirit that is from and of God or the human-animal spirit. We can put on or wear either spirit as dominant in our lives while in this world. Our soul, mind, will and emotions are to put on and be saturated with Spirit God.
The putting on of the Spirit of God is referred to in the Bible as being baptized in The Holy Spirit. Baptized means being completely submersed and saturated. (Matthew 3:11, Acts 2:4, 4:31, 4:8)
Our being becomes filled or saturated with The Holy Spirit of God and we no longer live only in this natural world.
We are returned to full access into the Spirit realm of God and heaven as Spirit beings. Being filled with The Holy Spirit is the fullness of The Holy Spirit God ruling in our hearts over the natural spirit.
“For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So, when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: ‘Death is swallowed up in victory.’” 1 Corinthians 15:50-54
As we walk in the Spirit of God, we put to death the old man and are free to fully live in the manifest presence of Spirit God and all things are possible nothing is impossible in the supernatural Spirit life in God.
There is no more death but an upgrade in life now and forever.
Thank you, Jesus!
Be made whole in His love,
