Eternal Grace Now by Ron McGatlin

Revelation is not something new; it is God opening our spiritual eyes to see what has always been there. Currently we are experiencing the most exciting revealing of the reality of eternal grace empowerment to live as Christ in the eternal kingdom of God now in this present natural life experience.

Our hearts are overwhelmed to be chosen of God to be a part of this season of the revealing of Christ Jesus alive and well in His Body arising from the ashes of a lost fallen world. Waiting deep within, under seemingly tons of flesh and religion, are hearts alive with the fire of hope of Christ in us for a holy life in a holy land with a Holy God.

It is happening now! It is beginning to be revealed to a broader spectrum of the Body now in this moment of time!

The eternal kingdom of Christ is manifesting into temporal time.

Flesh and religion are dissolving off the lives of forerunners by intimate communion with Christ in God, by His Spirit,forming the fullness of Christ within.

Forerunners connecting together in spiritual relational gatherings are being transformed toward the full stature of Christ in His Body.

Never before and never again will we pass through this season of the eternal Christ and His kingdom beginning to manifest the long-awaitedhope of glory in His Body on earth. The mystery of the ages is being further revealed in our time. Spiritual eyes are being opened, and the dark fog is clearing revealing with crystal clarity the brightness of the glorious kingdom of heaven manifesting on earth.

This world, this planet and all that is on it, can never again be as it has been. The reality of the work of the preeminent Christ from heaven as Lord over all the earth is manifesting by His Spirit, burning away and dissolving all that is not of God from the hearts and lives of humble, willing, believing forerunners. Not far behind the forerunners are armies of pure-hearted, humble, holy spiritual sons of God marching as one Body, fully connected to ONE HEAD, the King of kings and Lord of lords, Christ Jesus.

From the throne in heaven the supernatural spiritual wisdom, power, and love of God is flowing into the natural world now through forerunners and very soon, through the armies of God’s holy people, transforming the world to the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.

This is the eternal grace of God now.

Can we feel the fire of the hope of glory stirring deep within our beings – threatening to explode into our hearts and minds – burning away all doubt, fear, and unbelief in the absolute love and power of our glorious God, bringing forth the full stature of Christ in us?

The eternal grace empowerment of Christ in us is burning away our past lives, which are dissolving as a vapor of smoke blown away by the winds of glory. The supernatural resurrected life of Christ is replacing our old life. We will no longer live, but the life we now live will be the life of Christ in us. Our spirit, soul, and body are filling with the grace of God. The powerful flow of God’s grace upon our hearts is reflecting out into every facet of our being to transform the world around us.

Losing Our Past Lives
Many of us have suffered and endured to the end and could endure no longer. It seemed so vital to us to maintain our lives full of many worthy things - things such as careers for which we educated ourselves – families that we dearly loved and were closely connected to – church life and relationships that were paramount in our lives – good reputations that were important to our sense of well being – good financial income and positions that provided comfort and a sense of security, just to name a few.

Losing our life is called “death.” There is no resurrection life without death. God had chosen us to become forerunners of the revealing of the kingdom of God on earth. We may have had no idea that all this death was the grace of God working on us to bring us to the resurrection life of Christ in us.
We may have, as I did, fought hard to try to stay alive and repair or patch up the broken life. I knew the intent of my heart was to know and serve God. So, why was all this good stuff crumbling and dissolving no matter how hard I strove to keep it alive?

We must come to the full end of our past lives before the new life of Christ in us can be fully formed in us. As long as we can come up with one more thing to try to make our past “Christian” life work, as long as we can find one more thing, one more possible place to draw strength from to sustain our old life, we cannot fully receive the resurrection life of Christ in us.

God does ALL the work. On our part three things are involved: humility, willingness, and faith. We will only achieve these three virtues as God draws us to Himself. As He reveals to us His love, majesty, power, and wisdom, we are drawn by His grace and greatly desire Him. Faith is birthed in us as we see and experience Him. We are completely humbled by His awesome love and glory. Knowing and experiencing Him, we become willing to endure the death of past life and loose all of our strength, so that in our weakness we may gain His strength living in us.

In His strength, holy supernatural living becomes effortless. Truly His burden is light and His yoke is easy and all things are possible to those who believe. He is building His church (ekklesia) to build His kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.

We are living in the beginning of the kingdom age that Jesus spoke of 2000 years ago as “the age to come.”


So He said to them, "Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or parents or brothers or wife or children, for the sake of the kingdom of God, who shall not receive many times more in this present time, and in the age to come eternal life." "He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.” "Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”

Keep on pursuing love. It never fails and His kingdom never ends.
