Living the “American Dream,” has affected many people in the western world with a deep spiritual slumber.
The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob has planted the promise of redemption of this world. Christ Jesus, the promised Messiah, has planted the people of God on Planet Earth with the seed (DNA) of the Kingdom of God.
While the sleeping people of the world dreamed of gaining riches and playing games, they missed the precious seed of the gospel of the Kingdom of God that had been planted by Christ Jesus.
The so-called “American Dream,” has become a “nightmare,” as the evil one slipped in and captured the minds of the slumbering people. Their children were enticed and trained by deceiving spirits of darkness that often posed as angels of light. As the children grew into adults, more darkness was spread across the land. Generations of degradation occurred that no longer retained the seed of the kingdom in Christ Jesus.
Today, a foreign people possessed by another god, are moving into the land of the sleeping dreamers to take over the land and rule over the people. The objective of the takeover is to destroy the precious seed of the Kingdom of God, by removing from the earth of all who were planted with the seed of Christ Jesus, and to establish the throne of another god in place of the one true God.
Awakening the Precious Seed
In recent history, God has sent many awakenings to arouse those who slept into a vital life in the Spirit. He has prepared and sent many bold and courageous men and many powerful ministering spirits (holy angels) working with them to point the people back toward the Kingdom of God. For the most part these men and the moves they brought are now gone. The men have gone on to heaven to cheer us on.
However, the moves of God they brought and the works they did remain as a seed that is seeded into a remnant of people. Their missions have finished, and the season has changed. Their missions have not failed. However, looking at the masses it would appear that they mostly lived and served in vain. However, that is not true.
God has, through all of this, prepared a remnant of seed people fully permeated and formed by the DNA of King Jesus and the Kingdom of God from heaven. That remnant is probably much larger than it appears when compared to the masses of people in the world.
Historically, pilgrims and pioneers always carried bags of seeds with them to be planted in the new land where they were to settle. They also carried within themselves the seeds of their culture. The culture is not in the land; it is in the people. The people form the culture that is within them wherever they settle.
The seed of the kingdom culture is in the remnant to fill the land with the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.
We are the seed of the kingdom coming forth on earth. Our bag of seed is the gospel of the kingdom planted by Christ Jesus and the first century disciples. Truth is our leader, wisdom walks beside us, and Love is our power. We are the word spoken from God to colonize the earth with the culture of Heaven.
There is no compromise in the precious seed people of God refined in the fires of persecution and hardship, molded and shaped by the hand of the living God, resounding the music of the songs of His heart resonating in every living thing on the earth and in the sea, healing the earth and all that remains, bringing peace on earth and good will toward man.
Establishing the New Jerusalem Colony
Beyond the many tribulations of cleansing judgments coming upon the world that will remove that which God has not planted, the seed pilgrims and pioneers will plant the New Jerusalem culture from heaven in the open land of the burned out world.
God will produce beauty from the ashes of the old world. The mourning of the world will be turned to joy. The spirit of praise will replace the heaviness of persecution. The seed kingdom people will be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord to the glory of Lord. They will rebuild the old wastes and raise up the former desolations. They shall repair the waste cities and the desolations of many generations (See Isaiah 61).
“We must through many tribulations enter the Kingdom of God,” Acts 14:22b.
Tabernacles the Late Harvest Festival
The great harvest of the earth is soon upon us. There is nothing religious about the great harvest. It is one hundred percent real in every way. It is not even “Christian,” as we have known it.
Multitudes coming to God, and nobody going to “church.” It is the reality of truly becoming the church, the Body of Christ on earth directly connected to our Head, Christ Jesus. It is the real life presence of God in and among His people projecting His heavenly kingdom into every aspect and facet of this world. It is His kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.
It is people gathering to worship God in His presence. It is families praying together and sharing the word together. It is men and women gathering is business offices for prayer and worship in His presence. It is fathers and mothers teaching God’s kingdom ways of life to their children. It is extended families and whole tribes gathering in vacant buildings, under trees, or at the beach – in the “garden spots” of God’s provision.
The great cleansing has begun. The tribulation of cleansing judgment coming upon individuals and tribes is not a new thing.
Many of us have experienced both the impartation of heavenly life from God and the devastation of desolated lives that brought us to our knees, or more accurately on our faces over and over again in turning from layer after layer of our past life and being progressively purified in our daily lives in Christ Jesus.
Judgment for the children of God is chastening that is part of forming us into worthy vessels to carry the glory of God. Judgment to those who will not turn to God is progressive annihilation unto premature death. Sons whom God loves are chastened. The sons of the evil one that will not turn to Christ Jesus must face the wages of their sin which is death.
Thus the season of cleansing judgments preceding the worldwide planting of the Kingdom of God is both purification to the children of God and purification of the earth as the fire of God brings an end of what the enemy has planted and built.
As it is for individuals so it is for tribes and nations
Any tribe or nation that will not become the Kingdom of God will not survive the great culture change from its pagan godless ways to the culture of heaven in the Kingdom of God. Great turmoil beyond anything ever seen before will bring forth that which is written in the Bible and nothing that lifts itself against God will survive.
PREPARE NOW – THE TIME IS SHORT
Hear the voice of God within telling us what to do in preparation. God is speaking in part:
“Humble yourselves now; repent for your wicked religious and secular ways of living according to your own desires and designs apart from Me. Bring your whole life to My spiritual altar and leave it there. I will repay,” says the LORD.
Pray with your whole heart the model prayer Jesus gave us. Make every portion of it real. As an example when you say, “Heavenly Father,” make sure; is He really your Father?
What does that mean to you? When you say, “Hallowed be your name,” is His name truly holy and highly respected above all else to you?
Meditate each portion of the prayer and examine yourself to make it real and true within you:
“Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
As we forgive our debtors.
And do not lead us into temptation,
But deliver us from the evil one.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen”
If we earnestly from our hearts pray as Jesus said to pray, we are aligning ourselves with the Kingdom of God on earth. When we are perfectly aligned with God and His kingdom, He will guide us and empower us to live the life of Jesus establishing His kingdom on earth.
We literally become the culture of the Kingdom of God planted into the world – the seed that grows the kingdom from heaven into this world.
There is no more worthy life that can be lived on earth. There is no greater significance in life. There is nothing more satisfying and fulfilling, more completely joyful and peaceful than being the seed that grows the Kingdom of God on earth.
The whole earth is groaning awaiting the mature sons of God.
Thank You, God, for calling and choosing us to be Your willing vessels to become seeds of your kingdom planted in the earth. You are worthy, O God, of our becoming living sacrifices wholly set apart as bond servant sons unto You. Truly, Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen
