Our heart’s strength faded as we saw the power of cunning deception of strategic schemes of lies played out before us step by step eroding the hope of turning our nations to the light of the glory of the love of God.
Our strong desires for light and love to overcome the advancing darkness found a moment of hope in the strength of human strategy mixed with our strong desire and hope for God’s approval and help.
The cunning of deception went to new levels of hidden trickery in the unseen world of twisted technological works of enhanced human intelligence in minds ruled by darkness to out-maneuver our good strategies and strong desires.
The Crafting of Human Minds
The well ingrained humanistic principles have through decades been firmly planted in generations to replace the truth of God with false trust in the supremacy of the intellect of mankind as the one great source of sustenance for life in the world.
This has largely been done through systems of godless education and entertainment.
This strong belief system is daily sustained and enhanced through massive input from electronic godless media of television entertainment and news programing.
Movies, online communications, books, and person-to-person communications on social media also add to the daily inputs that are crafting the minds of the people.
In addition to all of these ungodly inputs using media, the degradation of the situation grows into direct inner spirit-to-spirit input from demons of darkness directly into the hearts of human beings.
Two Ways to Change This World
The first way is to change the minds and hearts of the people. The bottom line is that the people have to be changed in their hearts and minds to change the world.
External laws are oppressive to people of a different heart and mind. Forced external obedience does not change internal beliefs and character.
The second way is to let things run the full course and the people die prematurely. Darkness of sin in the heart produces death.
Then start with a new generation and from birth begin to form their hearts and minds in the truth of the love, power, and wisdom of Almighty God in Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit.
The soul that sins shall surely die, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus. (Ezekiel 18:4, Romans 6:23).
Can anything abruptly change the hearts and minds of the people who have been crafted and molded by generations of cunningly devised ungodly lies? Yes!
The Full Manifestation of the Glory of God
The GLORY of God manifesting on earth will bring the manifest presence of God in His people and available to all people, thus expediting the change taking place to one end or the other.
After experiencing the GLORY presence of God, those who repent and fully receive and rejoice in the glory of God enter into life abundant and everlasting, now and forever.
Those who cherish darkness and turn away from the manifest glory of God enter quickly into premature death.
Thus, The Kingdom of God within the prepared people of His Glory are released to fully establish the plan and will of God on earth as it is in heaven.
This brings the full reality of the work of the cross of Christ and the work of the resurrected life of The LORD Christ Jesus to full maturity of changing the world to the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.
Gates and Doors of the King of Glory
Who will stand and bring forth the fullness and greatness of the Glory of God on earth?
Only Christ Jesus Himself. Whether by abiding on earth in His heavenly body or abiding on earth in His glorified body of believers, it is the life of The LORD CHRIST JESUS.
Who is the king of glory? The LORD lifted up.
Who is to lift up their heads and be lifted up?
Who are these gates or everlasting doors?
Yes, you got it. It is the mature sons and daughters of God, you and me as one body of Christ on earth by the indwelling Spirit. This is the fullness of the mystery of “Christ in you, the hope of glory.” (Colossians 1:26-27).
Gates are the way into the land. Doors are the way into the inner sanctum of the house, God is bringing the Glory into the land, the world. The King of Glory is in the land and knocking upon the door!
We Are the Gates and Doors Through Which the King of Glory Mighty in Battle Is Changing the World!
Who is the King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty in battle!
“Lift up your heads, O you gates! And be lifted up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in.
Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, The LORD mighty in battle.
Lift up your heads, O you gates! Lift up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in.
Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah,”Psalm 24:7-10.
Who is the King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty in battle!
Christ in You the Hope of Glory!
Biblical hope is a positive expectation not a maybe wishful thought or feeling.
Most people who call themselves Christian believe they have Christ in their heart because they invited Him to come into their lives and save them.
Mature sons and daughters of God EXPERIENCE the reality of Christ within their hearts and lives. The glorious life of pure holy love flowing supernatural power and wisdom bringing peace and joy is the experience of Christ abiding in us and us in Him.
As of last year (2020), we were not yet collectively ready for this experience. We are collectively in this year of 2021 becoming ready to lift up our heads as the gates and doors of the King of glory to come into our lives and thus into the world.
The current situation of the first month, the month of January of 2021 is the end, the failure, the death, or exhaustion of our human strategy mixed with our strong desire for God’s approval and help changing our world.
Our past efforts are now as dead as the valley of dry bones.
Resurrection life now by The Wind of The Spirit is bringing new Resurrection Life into the dead army of dry bones, new spirit bodies alive as gates and doors for The King of Glory to change the world!
As gates and doors we have authority as to what can and cannot enter our world and our house. Swing wide the gate and open wide the door for The King of Glory to fill the world with The Glory of God!
“Lift up your heads, O you gates!
Lift up, you everlasting doors!
And the King of glory shall come in…..”
Be made whole in His love,
