World cleansing can only be done by purification of the hearts and minds of the people of the world.
That which is in the collective hearts and minds of mankind restructures the arrangement and order of things in the world. At the level of thought and belief, the world is changed or reformed.
What mankind thinks and believes in his collective heart becomes the reality of the world.
You might be asking, how in the world can that be? How can the collective thoughts and beliefs of the people affect all life on earth and even the elements of the physical Planet Earth? I am so glad you asked that question.
We need to start to grasp this extraordinary reality by remembering that the Spirit realm created the natural realm from nothing. Father God, Christ Jesus the Son of God, and the Holy Spirit are eternally the one Jehovah God who is the creator of all that exists.
The triune God created the earth and prepared a special place called the Garden of Eden in which His perfect order of all things was created. Then He created Adam, and from Adam He created Eve with the seed of all mankind within them.
He breathed His Spirit life into them, and they became “living” beings – spiritually alive as son and daughter Spirit beings of God and natural living physical beings on earth. (Genesis Chapters 1&2).
With the same authority that spoke all creation into existence, God spoke the authority of dominion of all things on Planet Earth into Adam and Eve, and subsequently into all their seed, all mankind.
God wanted more from mankind than a manifested physical picture of His glorious majesty. He longed for a communion love relationship with man that was made in His image and likeness. God, in His great love, wanted to be loved by His special created beings made in His likeness.
Yet, if mankind were like all the rest of His creation without the ability to decide whether to do and be as God designed or not, there could never be the true experience of requited love from man to God.
If in fact man had not been given the ability and opportunity to decide to love God back by remaining in loving adoration and alignment with Him, then there would have been no real gratification to God in man’s robotic form of obedience without the possibility of making another choice or independent decision.
Therefore man was created with dominion authority on earth and with a free will to decide to love and obey God or to disobey and become his own god by deciding for himself what was good and what was bad or evil.
There was only one thing, one test for Adam and Eve and subsequently all mankind. That was to not partake of exercising the right to turn from communion with God and from trust in His loving guidance for life and the works of dominion on earth, (Genesis 3).
God made it clear that there was a severe condition involved in turning from God’s loving guidance and provision to being their own gods. Adam was told that if they did that, they would surely die. The life in the guidance and provision of God in the Garden of Eden perfect order of life would be ended for them.
Today, the nations of this world face this same choice.
We also need to realize that even after Christ Jesus the Son God came to earth and redeemed mankind back to the original potential of Adam, there is still our free will to choose to become fully restored by the work of Jesus in each of our lives.
We must also remember that the dominion given to man on earth has never been rescinded by God. Nor have the results of not living in loving alignment with God been changed.
Indeed it cannot be that God would abandon His word. Mankind continues to administer dominion LIFE or DEATH to this world.
The choice today facing the people of earth and thus the nations of this world is to turn back to God in Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit and be aligned in His love with His ways of exercising dominion on earth. This choice reconnects us with the heart and mind of God in the Spirit.
Loving God with our whole hearts fulfills our created purpose and opens the way for the full favor of God’s all-powerful love and provision to flow abundantly into the maturing sons and daughters of God. Mature sons and daughters are those in whom Christ Jesus fully dwells by the Holy Spirit to finish the work of restoring this world back to the perfect order of God.
The alternate choice is to continue to exercise dominion apart from God according to our own intellectual knowledge of what is good and evil, which results in death and not life.
The Great Division
In recent decades there has been a significant movement of many people out of religious and secular mind sets toward becoming Spirit God focused in intimate LOVE relationship with God in Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit.
There is a strong Spirit awakening to the truth and reality of God’s love and power releasing supernatural Spirit life, transforming the lives of those who are turning to God with their whole hearts.
The life is then flowing out of them, transforming the world around them. Thus the kingdom rule of God is coming forth in an increasing portion of the people on earth.
The increase of God in mankind strikes panic in the people of darkness.
The darkness and its atrocious manifestation of evil has infiltrated secular life and world religions changing educational systems, mass media, entertainment, governments, and most areas of influence into bastions of darkness. The vileness, violence, and viciousness of the darkness of evil is now boiling to the surface of life across the world.
This is the great division of mankind of light and darkness. Every difference or diversity in mankind is exploited by the cunning of evil spirits and made to be an issue of aggressive debate and cause for hatred from the darkness against the light.
The people of darkness intensely hate the people of light, (John 3:19-21).
The battle for the thoughts and beliefs in the people is the battle for the dominion of the world. The battle for the minds and hearts of men determines whether the one true Spirit God will be released to order the world with His loving ways or if the man-made gods of the powers of darkness will be allowed to continue its illegal dominion.
The Kingdom of God now coming forth on Earth
Again the question: How can the collective thoughts and beliefs of the people affect all life and bring forth the kingdom of God on earth?
Death and life are in the power of the tongue. Because of dominion authority bestowed upon man by God, words spoken out from mankind have an effect in the spiritual realm which affects the created or natural realm. (Proverbs 18:21, Mark 11:23, Matthew 17:20).
The words that we speak either lead toward life and all that goes with it, or they lead toward death and all that goes with death. Good words that lead to life are words that align with the love and ways of God.
Bad words that lead to death are words that are against or counter to the love and ways of God, (Proverbs 23:7a).
Where do spoken or written words come from? Before a word is spoken, it is a thought or belief in the mind or heart of man, (Luke 6:45).
The heart of man includes the spirit and mind of man. The spirit is ultimately behind every thought that is put into words by man.
Every thought either comes from spiritual light or spiritual darkness. Thoughts are like seeds carrying either light or darkness. Spoken thoughts sow seeds into the minds and hearts of others, (Matthew 13:18-23).
That which we hear, see, feel, or otherwise experience determines the thoughts or seeds that fill our minds and hearts. The human heart and mind will believe as truth anything it hears repeatedly over time especially from a respected or trusted source, (Philippians 4:8-9).
The combination of simultaneously seeing and hearing is possibly the most powerful input in establishing what the heart and mind perceives as truth. The spirit seeds in the incoming data from both hearing and seeing at the same time is powerful in establishing mindsets.
The New Western World Self-Governance Mindset
Western world nations have adopted a secular democratic philosophy that was set up in the USA to operate in a Christian environment where there was assumed a majority of the people were programmed with a basic belief in God and would therefore have goodness in their hearts toward God and one another.
Secular and democratic are terms for self-government which, in the USA under God worked really well for a season.
However, the enemy came in under the guise of secular independence and steered the nation away from God through the powerful influences of mass educational systems and mass media, especially higher education and television news and entertainment.
The minds and hearts of the people were changed by what they heard and saw repeatedly over time.
The growth of bad seeds planted through the eyes and ears into the hearts and minds of people can create strongholds that lead to disorder, stress, and disease among other things that produce only bad fruit and eventually death.
Good Seeds Lead to Life
The growth of good seeds planted in the mind and heart will lead to fruitfulness and a life of righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.
A nation and the world can only be changed and transformed by what the people think and believe. The rising up of those who by the Spirit are hearing and seeing God and His love, power, and wisdom in their lives is the change agent or seed to bring the world into one mind, the mind of Christ.
The division between the two different mindsets of light and darkness is rapidly moving the world into two major world changing events both of which are moving us into the real kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.
Two Worldwide Simultaneous Events of Transformation
One event is a great harvest of hearts and minds (souls) coming into the reality of the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.
This is the production of many mature sons and daughters filled with all the love, power, and wisdom of God proclaiming the reality of “God with us” to masses of people.
A major portion of this great harvest is multitudes who called themselves Christians but were without the love and power of the real kingdom of God.
These will join the many secularist and religionist extremist as well as masses of people from every walk of life who are coming into true intimate love relationship with God Almighty.
They are not coming for church or religion; they are coming to the love and power of the living God flowing through the mature sons and daughters of God.
A mindset is not easily changed. A major disruption or devastation is often required for a mindset to be shattered so that a new mindset can be formed.
The other major event occurring at the same time is a massive persecution and worldwide devastation of apocalyptic cataclysmic events that will change much of the face of the earth into a wilderness.
As all that lifts itself against God is being removed from the earth, the kingdom of God people are replenishing the earth with the glorious kingdom of God under the one King, Christ Jesus, the King of kings and Lord of lords.
Again these words of instruction will be heard from God, “BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY” as it was heard in the beginning. And again after the great flood had cleansed the earth when God spoke to Noah.
“So God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them: “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth,”” Genesis 9:1.
So it will be that God will have cleansed the earth, and the humble kingdom people will inherit the earth, (Matthew 5:3-10).
There will no more remain the works of the enemy and the kingdoms of this world shall be the kingdom of our God. THANK YOU, JESUS!
And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!” Revelation 11:15.
Be made whole in His love,
