A new season of tangible love is currently opening before the people of His Kingdom.
The all-consuming love of God is being released as a blanket upon the sons and daughters of God. A magnetic-like force is drawing together those who in past seasons became distant because of differences, much like two magnets with opposite polarity toward one another are drawn together by an invisible force.
There was a past season when the lack of love caused separation between believers with different parts of the whole plan of God. Like two magnets with the same poles toward one another, it seemed an invisible force made it impossible to cling together.
Religion worked as a force to drive apart the different parts of the Body. In part this was caused by each assuming that others should be exactly like them and serve the same purpose or occupy the same space in God’s plan. Different qualities are needed to fulfill the different purposes or jobs needed in the Body.
Love relationship with God without religion is now causing the differences that once divided us to draw us together in the greater light of the Kingdom of God. The pure holy love of God is erasing the lines we have drawn between one another.
All of the different parts are needed to form the whole. The thing that is not needed is our self-focused, fallen world, religious ideas and legalistic ways of seeking God’s approval of our traditions of man and doctrines of demons.
The shift from our self-ordained religious correctness to the pure holy love of God is allowing us to see our need for one another in order to become the complete whole.
The Greater Light of Love
There is now a greater light of love shining into us. That light reflects back to God and out to others around us. We are beginning to see clearly in the increased light that the brother or sister that is a bit different is not trying to take our space with his or her part but are seeking their place connected next to us.
We are no longer fighting to hold onto our place and do not fear losing it to that which we previously saw as a different ideology or theology. It may have been really only a different gifting or part that we did not have. We truly needed that part to be joined next to ours. (1 Corinthians 12: 12-30). We are members of His Body. (1 Corinthians 6:15).
Separation Leads toward Death
The sustenance of God’s life given to each part is to flow life to the joined different part next to it. The whole body sustains life as the parts join and flow life to the others. (Ephesians 4:15-16).
Separation produce dryness that leads toward death. The disjointed Body had become as dry bones in a valley of powerlessness, lifelessness, and death.
The reconnecting that we are sensing is the beginning of the valley of dry bones coming together. Yes, these dry bones can live. (Ezekiel 37:1-3).
God is reconnecting and rebuilding a mighty army of once dry dead believers.
First the bones come together; then comes the sinews that tie the bones together. Next comes the muscles and the organs and finally the skin. Then and only then is the breath of life blown into the body. The once dry bones become the fullness of a living mature Body of Christ fully and properly joined together with Christ Jesus as King and Head of the exceedingly great army of God. (Ezekiel 37:7-10).
The Kingdom comes together and is held together in perfect order by LOVE. The precious all-powerful, all-consuming, pure holy love of God in Christ Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life of the Kingdom of God on earth and in heaven.
It Is Time to Prophesy!
“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.
“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.
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.
Father God, we open our spiritual eyes to see and our spiritual ears to hear the rattling of the dry bones coming together in this the beginning of the forming of an exceedingly great army of Your Kingdom people.
We receive Your Spirit breath of Your life of love. We open our mouths and prophesy Your words of Spirit Life coming to the dry bones to come together and become Your exceedingly great army of sons and daughters, perfectly joined and ordered as Your dwelling place on earth.
Your Kingdom come, and Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Thank You, Father! Thank You, Jesus! Amen! And Amen!
A Work of Love by Spirit God
Joining together with others is not a job that we are to do for God. Trying to forge connections into a living working Body is not our job. Unity movements with good intentions to bring together the church as a cohesive unit have all failed miserably over time, and they will continue to do the same forever. Simply that is like the old saying of getting the cart before the horse.
The all-consuming love of God is the horse that pulls the cart of a fully connected and properly functioning Body to bring forth the fullness of the Kingdom of God on earth. Our job involves leaving the past efforts to “work for God” and allowing God to work on and in us and then through us by His love, power, and wisdom, (Philippians 2:13).
Love is the greatest key to the Kingdom of God. God is love, (1 John 4:7, Matthew 22 37-40).
We can never understand love until it possess us. It is not so much our having or possessing love as it is love possessing us.
Many believe they have God because they received Him into their hearts. Most will also readily confess that they love God and acknowledge that God loves them. Yet the fullness of the real Kingdom eludes them, (Matthew 7:21-23).
The true people of God’s Kingdom are people who are possessed by God’s Love. God has or possesses us. We are possessed by Love and are not our own; we have been bought with a price, (1 Corinthians 6:19-20).
Any attempt to be our own person is robbing God of His possession and will not bring anything of unity or the love of God into this world.
Independence from God is to rebel against the true King and Lord of all. It is usurping or stealing God’s possession, AND THAT WILL NEVER TURN OUT WELL.
False or Evil Alternate Kingdoms
Aligning completely with or giving yourself to any other system or person who is not a part of the real Kingdom of God is robbing God and inviting delusion and separation from the Kingdom of God life, (1 Corinthians 6:15-17).
Many if not most systems of life in the fallen world are alternate ungodly systems that all fail in time. Mankind has tried again and again to establish eternal systems of life apart from God. Each and every one of the many efforts have failed.
Only the Kingdom of God that is birthed in love, works by love, and is sustained by love WILL NEVER FAIL. All Kingdom of God systems of creation and existence originate from God in love. The history of man is a journey to find pure holy love, the key of all life.
Fully aligning with the Kingdom of God brings us into perfect alignment with all things of God, and all things are added to us. Misalignment with the Kingdom of God produces difficulty and eventually death and not life.
Choose you this day whom you will serve!
Choose Love and His Kingdom and be drawn to connect with one another to form the true Body of Christ. Jesus is the King on earth and is the unity of love and harmony in the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.
Be made whole in His love,
