At the time of this writing, I will have finished 90 years of life on this planet next month.
Around 70 of those years have been a journey of growing into becoming one with God in pure Holy Love.
Perhaps one of the greatest realities that I have discovered about who I am and who we are as redeemed human beings is that we are each individually a spirit son of God. That is to say that we each are a spirit being living in an earthly body.
At the same time, like all other human beings, we each are a natural living breathing animal with natural
Natural Human Animals
As natural animals, we must breathe air, eat food, and drink water to stay alive. Like all living animals, we are preprogrammed with many instincts or urges. One of those instincts is a strong urge to stay alive.
As natural human beings, we are also created with the ability to think, understand, and manage our existence to some degree.
Also, as natural human animals, we know that we have a limited time to be alive on earth. Therefore, mankind is given the instinct to procreate.
Father God designed the procreation process to be extremely desirable and fulfilling to cause the human species to continue to exist on earth.
The desire for food and for that which involves the natural procreation process are probably the most intense drives within the human animal.
A few terms referring to these predominant drives in human beings are hunger, romance, and sex. Much, if not most, of the commerce and activities of life in the world are in some way and to some degree affected by these basic drives of instinct in mankind.
As fully redeemed humans we each are first and foremost a spirit being that abides in a natural body. In Christ and Christ in us we are the offspring or children of God. (! Corinthians 2:10-12, Colossians 1:26-27, Romans 8:1, John 15:4).
Unlike all other known animals, fully redeemed human beings are the interface between the created natural realm and the heavenly Spirit realm of God.
As the only living connection on earth with the authority to change the earth, the redeemed human is unlike all other known animals. We are God’s natural supernatural creation center on earth. (Mark 11:23, Matthew 13).
The heart of redeemed mankind is the birthplace of creative works of God on earth. All power of God in heaven and on earth is available at any time to His fully redeemed and restored sons to do or be anything that God says.
It is not by the strength of man. It is the works of God. It is God working in us to be and do His good pleasure. God speaks His word into our hearts. We receive it by faith into our hearts and God grows it forth into creation.
A Word from God is like a seed. Our believing heart is like good soil. (Matthew 13:18:23)
A farmer sows the seed into the soil. The farmer does not grow the seed. The soil grows the seed by itself. (Mark 4:26-29).
Bearing the Fruit of Heaven on Earth
It is God that plants and grows the fruit of heaven into this earth. Heaven only grows to fill this world through human Spirit beings fully connected in perfect alignment with heaven.
Fully open and uncluttered channels flow heaven’s seeds and all that is needed for the fruit of heaven to be grown into this world.
The number one question is: What must I do to be fully connected, open and uncluttered, and in perfect alignment?
The answer to that question is:
Fall in Love With God!
FALL — Come down from your high place of….
IN — Into cleansing Spirit of deep oneness….
LOVE — Passionate fire of becoming one….
WITH — Two-way passionate relationship….
GOD — Father, Son Jesus, Holy Spirit one….
Falling completely in passionate love with God connects us directly with the power, wisdom, and plan of God. (1 Corinthians 2:9-10, Mark 12:29-31)
Through a passionately broken heart caused by experiencing God’s total unconditional love for us, a surge of love for God swells up from within our hearts.
This overwhelming love empowers us to leave our past lukewarm casual life of a religious mixture of self-fulfillment and striving.
Abide in Love
God is love. As we continue to abide in God and He abides in us our lives are transformed. We become whole in Him. We no longer feel incomplete and lacking.
That for which we felt we were lacking and strove to get is added to us in the peace and joy of life in and with God. (Matthew 6:33).
We abide in His righteousness, peace, and joy in the presence of God through Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit. (Romans 14:17).
This is The Kingdom of God within us and flowing out of us transforming the world around us into the kingdom of heaven on earth. (Luke 17:20-21).
The True Ekklesia
This is the ekklesia or called out ones of Christ Jesus ruling and reigning with Him on earth. The word Ekklesia is a word in scripture that is translated Church in English Bible translations. (Matthew 16:17-19).
The actual meaning refers to elders called out in Israel to gather at the city gates to make decisions by the leading of God that involved what could come in and out of the city for the wellbeing of all in the city.
In other words, it was the governance of God. The forerunner of the kingdom of God on earth.
Modern church systems that are not governing the cities and nations but are separated behind walls from the governance and the business of the cities and nations is not the ekklesia of God on earth.
The English word ecclesia (pronounced with a long e) is taken from the word ekklesia but generally refers to all the church systems of religion today.
God is today through His overwhelming all-consuming love calling out His ekklesia from the fallen secular world and the ecclesia or church systems of today.
He is calling and transforming His chosen people into the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.
Not by Works Lest Any Should Boast
This is not a takeover of the different forms of political governments of the world. Any form of actual practical political government can work if, and ONLY IF, it is completely ruled by God and His pure Holy Love that produces God’s Wisdom and Power.
In other words, whether it is called a democracy or a dictatorship, or parliament, or any other name or form it can work if God is in full control through His Spirit ruling by His love in the person or people who rule.
The Kingdom of God is the is the one true all inclusive final rule of all creation. King Jesus is the King of kings and The LORD of lords. (1 Timothy 6:15, Revelation 17:14, 19:16).
The Kingdom of God is not a Church system or theological group trying to take over the world.
It is the rightful God and King, the creator of all life living in His sons and daughters, His offspring on earth living in the pure Holy Love, in and with the God of all creation.
It is the coming forth of perfect harmony in all areas of creation on earth, the reality of a world made whole by a people made whole in God by Christ Jesus in the Holy Spirit of God. It is heaven on earth.
“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” Matthew 6:33.
Be made whole in His love,
