The great move of God bringing great change to the world does not originate and is not empowered by the works and ways of the natural realm.
It originates and is empowered by the Spirit realm. The reality of the Spirit realm is unseen and unknown to the natural man, (1 Corinthians 2:13-16).
We are born with keen awareness of natural existence through our five natural senses and with little or no awareness of the spiritual realm.
There may be some inherent awareness of spiritual sensitivity in babies and small children. They may see or otherwise sense some presence of spiritual activity.
However, it will be taught out of them as natural human thinking is trained into them, (Matthew 23:15).
Our natural human perspective sees the natural realm as far more real and important than the spiritual realm, (Matthew 6:31-33).
The Great Shift of Perspective
The next great move of God on earth is the awakening to the reality that Spirit is supreme and of far greater importance than the natural realm.
It will be a breakthrough of the light and truth that GOD REALLY IS SPIRIT and that MAN WAS CREATED IN THE IMAGE AND LIKENESS OF SPIRIT GOD, (John 4:24, Genesis 1:26-28).
SPIRIT GOD CREATED AND CONTINUES TO SUSTAIN ALL THAT IS CREATED. All things seen and unseen are created by SPIRIT GOD ALMIGHTY, (Hebrews 11:3, Colossians 1:15-18).
MANKIND WAS CREATED A SPIRIT BEING in a natural or earthly body with both earthly natural senses and spiritual senses.
The breath of Spirit God was breathed into the lifeless body of Adam, and man became a living Spirit being, (Genesis 2:7).
As a Spirit-being in an earthly body, Adam, and subsequently all mankind, was created with the unique ability to fully function in the Spirit realm and in the natural realm.
Adam communed with Spirit God face to face in the cool of the day in the Garden of Eden before the fall, (Genesis 2:19-20a, Genesis 3).
Mankind was created with the unique ability to receive from God in heaven and bring the will of God from the spirit realm into the created natural realm.
Man was created to have dominion and bring forth the will and ways of God from heaven to planet earth. This is how the Kingdom of God, Kingdom of Heaven is being established on earth.
The Next Great Move of God
The beginning of the work of Spirit God is awakening mankind to the Spirit dominance as supreme over the natural realm.
This opens the way into the fullness of God’s kingdom reality ruling and reigning in and through the mature Sons of God on earth as it is in heaven.
It is through the Holy Spirit that Christ Jesus reigns on earth in and through mankind. It is Christ in us that is the hope, positive expectation, of the glory of the kingdom of God on earth, (Colossians 1:26-27, John 17:20-26).
Mankind is now beginning to perceive the predominance of the Spirit realm over the natural or earthly realm.
The light of the glory of the kingdom is beginning to flow from heaven to earth in and through the maturing Sons of God, (Romans 8:19-22).
Who Are you?
Perhaps the most significant personal question one can ask his or her self is, “Who are you?”
To attempt to look into one’s self and ask this question may smack of being “beside yourself,” which is an old term for being crazy.
Perhaps a more helpful question to ask is, “Who or what does God say that I am?”
This is not to become an introspective word but really and enlightening awakening of one of the most important fundamental concepts of our lives as human beings.
The Psalmist David asked God, “What is man that you are mindful of him?” David goes on to speak of man having dominance over the works of God’s hands on earth from a position a little lower than Deity.
“When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him? For You have made him a little lower than “Elohim,” and You have crowned him with glory and honor.
You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet, all sheep and oxen — even the beasts of the field, the birds of the air and the fish of the sea that pass through the paths of the seas,” Psalm 8:3-8.
The Fallen Condition of Man
Most people have individually come to know themselves as a natural human being that is predominantly a living body and soul who has a spirit.
In other words, natural man concerns himself primarily with the things of natural life that relate to body and soul needs for natural life, (Matthew 6:31-33).
Jesus opened and prepared the way for mankind to be redeemed and returned to who and what God made us to be before the fall of Adam.
God made us to be Spirit Beings who abide in a body and have a soul. Redeemed man is a living Spirit Being by the breath of God ruling and reigning on Planet Earth with Christ Jesus the one Head of His corporate Body, (1 Thessalonians 5:23).
Collectively we are the Body of Spirit Christ on earth. As mankind is fully redeemed, Christ Jesus is fully enthroned as the Head of His Body.
The false head of humanism and intellectualism along with its laws of political correctness, man-made religious correctness, and other ungodly philosophies are replaced by the one true Head, (1 Corinthians 12:12-31, Ephesians 4:13-15).
The false headship that reigned among men for ages ignored the Spirit life of God and eventually led to evil rule of darkness on earth.
The loving but severe judgments of God will destroy the evil strongholds of the enemy releasing the people who will to come under the true headship of King Jesus.
Thus the kingdom of God will rule and reign on earth as it is in heaven.
Praise God! The time of consummation is before us, and we can be a part of it.
“Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom,”Luke 12:32.
Be made whole in His love,
