One of the three most significant events in the history of man is coming to fruition in this season of God and man.
The three significant events in the history of mankind and the world are: the creation of man, the fall of man, and the redemption of man and the world.
The first two major events are completed, and the third is now coming to fullness in man and the world.
Because mankind was given dominion, the entire world has followed the state of mankind. In man’s original created state, the entire world was to become as the Garden of Eden, and it was going that direction until the fall of man. The whole earth has suffered since the fall of man. The earth was subjected to futility by the disobedience of mankind and now awaits the mature obedient sons of God to fully redeem and restore the world.
“For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the (mature) sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope (of man turning back to God); 21 because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God,” Romans 8:18-21.
The fall of man has hindered the fullness of God from flowing with and through mankind to bless the earth to become the Garden of Eden.
A natural man by his natural mind knows and functions in natural things. A living Spirit man knows and functions in spiritual things as well as natural things. Natural man without the Living Spirit God is not the person God originally created mankind to be.
Man was created a Spirit being in a natural body to relate fully with God and structure life on earth according to the leadership and direction of God. At the fall, man lost the close intimate relationship with God and began ruling life from his own mind influenced by the deception of the enemy.
Natural man no longer knows or remembers the way of life of oneness with God that we all had in Adam before the fall.
Christ Jesus Is the Way
In His incarnate lifetime on earth, Christ Jesus re-taught and demonstrated the way of life in oneness with God to mankind. He provided for the salvation of men so we could transform the World. Jesus preached and demonstrated the Kingdom of God in and with mankind on earth. Everything needed for you and me to become the sons of God abiding in the Kingdom of God and earth has been provided in Christ Jesus.
The redemption of man and the world began at the cross. Restoration of new resurrection life for mankind began at the resurrection of Christ. The transformation process of mankind and the world began at Pentecost as Spirit Christ returned in the Holy Spirit to abide within His people to restore the world to the Kingdom of God, the Garden of Eden life on earth.
The Enemy Opposition
The enemy is given authority on earth by the refusal of much of mankind to believe and receive the works of Christ Jesus in the cross, His resurrection, ascension, and His return at Pentecost to indwell His people to redeem and restore man and the world to the Kingdom of God.
Man without the Spirit of Christ within has no access to the magnificent, all powerful, all knowing, and all loving way of the tree of life.
Natural man is left to draw only mixture and eventual failure from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. The guidance and power to complete the work of redemption and restoration of man and the world is lost to the natural man without the Spirit of God.
The Season of Transformation
You and I are alive on Planet Earth in the season of mankind returning to the tree of life and the great transformation of the world to the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. Every day more people awaken from religion to the reality of God in and with His people.
All that man and the enemy have built on earth that is not of God must be either redeemed or dissolved.
The Mighty Roar of Transition
The roar of apocalyptic cataclysmic events coming upon the world is bringing the end of this era of mankind being ruled by evil forces of darkness. No person or thing can or will stop the transition of the world and all that is in it from being transformed into the image and likeness of God and heaven.
Life as we have known it is changing forever. How will people endure the extreme changes to their way of life?
We need to understand that it is the love of God for this world and for His people that allows the extreme events that dissolve all that is not from God in this world. God so loved the WORLD that He gave His only begotten Son. God has spared nothing to redeem and restore the world.
Cleansing judgment upon the world must come to remove all that will not turn to God so that Christ Jesus can fully reign in the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.
The cleansing judgments have now begun at the “house of God.” “For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?” 1 Peter 4:17.
The eyes of political and religious leaders have been blinded causing them to not see the destroyer encroaching upon the land. Evil is seen as good and godliness is seen as evil in the eyes of the spiritually blind leaders that are leading the spiritually blind people.
The Reward of the Wicked Is Not for the Righteous
You will only look upon and see the reward of the wicked. It will not come near you.
“A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.
Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place,…”
Please Notice the Qualifications of This Very Important Promise
Being a “Christian” does not necessarily qualify anyone to receive these promises. Being a church member and attending regularly does not necessarily set us apart from the judgments that begin at the “house of God.” Trying to do good things for God does not qualify us.
It Is Not How You Live; It Is Where You Live!
It’s about where we dwell. Only if we have made the LORD the Most High our dwelling place can we be partakers of these promises in this season of cleansing judgment that has now already begun.
The LORD Most High is Spirit. Dwelling in the LORD is abiding as ONE with Spirit God. DWELLING in the secret place of the Most High and ABIDING under the shadow of the Almighty is more than just visiting with God from time to time.
“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High, shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty,” Psalm 91:1.
All of this does NOT mean that our lives will continue on as usual and unchanged. On the contrary, all of our lives will probably go through much change as we truly become one Spirit with God as mature sons of God doing the business of our Father from heaven in this world.
Whether we are taken home to be with the LORD or we make the LORD Most High our dwelling place, our old lives are gone and life is radically changed.
Please Read and Meditate
See Psalm 91.
It is only 16 verses yet it is filled with wisdom for this season of great troubling in the world.
Our lives as we live in the Spirit and walk in the Spirit abiding in Christ Jesus does not consist of things of this world. Our lives consist in Christ and Christ in us. As mature Sons of God dwelling in Christ and Christ in us, we are the masters of this world bringing the love, power, and wisdom of God to rule and reign in this world with Christ in us by the Holy Spirit.
Whether we live long on earth or die young in battle is not the major issue of our lives. The major issue is being and doing all God has sent us to this world to be and do.
The most important thing is to accomplish our part and finish the course so as to hear at the end, “Well done, you good and faithful servant.” We do not want to take anything to the grave with us that God has given us to impart to this world.
Jesus said, “Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. 5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing,” John 15:4-5.
Be made whole in His love,
