I took a hiatus from my blog primarily because of serious living away from a computer… which is always best. Before I continue with my agenda of posting additional chapters of my book draft Thy Kingdom Come: Here and Now, and my three additional installments of The Zodiac Gospel— I have decided to continue interspersing selected essays from other sources as well as additional short original articles that are on my heart.
Again I will stress the beauty and power of the anointing that is resident and available for consumption on OpenHeaven.com. I so look forward to the day when I will hug the neck of our elder brother Ron McGatlin. This post is a complete citation of a recent essay which Ron wrote and posted on the site. Please process its truths in prayer, and again I say… take the time to read, study, and internalize The Kingdom Growth Guides that are sooooo edifying, and freely made available on this great website. I quote Extreme Life by Ron McGatlin in its entirety:
Jesus is still saving lost souls. In a world gone crazy with carnal pleasure and violence the need for those who will win souls has not lessened. The joy of the Lord in personal intimate relationship with His young disciples of love and power is awesome. The prayer warriors of the world are moving in the grace of God to stand for the salvation of millions of souls and lives. There is no greater hope than the hope of Christ Jesus and His Kingdom of righteousness, peace, and joy.
Worship Him, praise Him with all your might. Shout with a mighty shout of victory in Jesus. Release the life of God from within that waits to be released to do mighty works in a desperate world. On every hand the conditions of the world seem to become more tense and the future more uncertain. God is still on the throne and desires to release an army of supernatural men and women to call forth the plans and purposes of God into the world. True Kingdom associates are desired to arise with the power of God and healing in their hands to change everything in their path. [It will be] Like a fire burning up the evil and releasing the seed of God to replenish the earth with the pure holy people of the vibrant real Kingdom of God from Heaven on earth.
Extreme conditions or circumstances call for extreme measures and actions. Normal cycles and balances of life can be suddenly disrupted by an extreme intervention or occurrence. In an instant normal life conditions can be altered and become extreme life conditions. The serenity of a normal evening meal with family could be changed into an extreme life situation with one major lightning strike.
An average Christian living what most would term a normal life can be instantly launched into an extreme life by one encounter with God. A spiritual lightning strike of His power and love can consume ‘normal’ life and begin an adventure of extreme living in the power, love, and joy of God. Someone may be thinking, “Wow, I would sure like to be struck with lightning like that!”
In the natural it is a known fact that individually we have an extremely small chance of being struck by lightning in our lifetime. Subconsciously we may consider our chances of being struck with the life-changing power of God is about the same. Probably most of us know someone or know of someone who has been struck by spiritual lightning and experienced a major change from normal to extreme living. Perhaps we keep hoping at least from time to time that it will be our time soon. Others may hope that it never happens to them.
Chance may be a factor in being hit by natural lightning but I’m not at all sure it is the only factor. With spiritual lightning or heavenly fire chance does not even enter the equation. Probably, most Christians have no worry of ever being hit by an awesome impartation of God in a life-changing revelation and power bringing abundant life and full joy. At least not without breaking through a strong thick wall around their lives. That wall is made of religious unbelief and human doubt. Incomplete truth mixed with fallacious doctrine has been trained into many Christians and has walled them off from the truth of the powerful Kingdom of God from Heaven on earth. In addition their human experience has become the mortar of doubt to hold together the rocks of unbelief that hardens hearts to the revelation of real Kingdom living.
God is calling for and receiving armies of extreme, radical sons and daughters that will throw off the coverings and break down the walls of past religious unbelief. Unbelief of hearing God and moving in the power and pure love of the Spirit of God. the age of powerless religious form is rapidly passing away and the age of the revelation of the powerful, loving, reality of the Kingdom of God is coming forth like lightning from Heaven. In an instantaneous flash of light from Heaven, revelation of an extreme life of joy, power, and love can be imparted into our hearts and lives.
The age of the mixture of God’s anointing with impurities of carnality and religious forms are swiftly passing away. the same lightning flashing from Heaven that imparts an extreme life of joy, power, and love also exposes underlying carnality and forces a time of decision upon those who name His name but live by their own name. Repentance, purging, and cleansing fire is a part of the glory of God. It is a part of His power and love coming forth in the revelation of Who He really is and what really is His Kingdom. Revelation light exposes deception and darkness. Sadly, some love the darkness and run to it and rage against the extreme light of truth from God. They turn back to what Christ Jesus has spewed out of His mouth. A spirit of mockery will come upon them and they will openly mock God and deride the name of Jesus. The great majesty of God will be made into a circus, the Disney world of religion making a show of mocking God.
Sadly, these will not be in position to receive an awesome impartation of God in a burst of life-changing revelation and power. The same burst of lightning that brought an impartation of the power of God will bring destruction to Babylon. Those who remain in Babylon will partake of her judgment. Hear the voice of the Spirit, Come out of her My people!
2 Chronicles 36:16… But they mocked the messengers of God, despised His words, and scoffed at His prophets, until the wrath of the Lord arose against His people, till there was no remedy.
Revelation 18:2-4… And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a habitation of demons, a prison of every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird. For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.” And I heard another voice from Heaven saying, “Come out of her, My people lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.”
2 Corinthians 6:16-18… And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said, “I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God and they shall be My people.”
Therefore “Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you.” “I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”
