God is taking the Lid off

By Ron McGatlin

Sunday morning when our pastor announced a special upcoming Praise Gathering for Saturday evening June 4, 2022, I saw in a vision God’s large hand reach down and start screwing the lid off of a glass fruit jar like the ones used to home can fruits and vegetables.

I was greatly impacted as God began speaking:

“I am taking the lid off of my people. Much of what I have placed within them has been held back waiting for the time of release. This is the time of release. All of the love, faith and power gifts that have been locked up within My people are now, this year and this month released. I am completely removing all restraints and clearing all channels for all that I have put within my people to flow out to ignite the fires of My glory unto the full manifestation of power to transform each one of you and the world around you.”

Now, this summer, before the fall and winter is the beginning of the full unrestrained glory gifts of God to come to a fullness of manifestation. All that God has put in our hearts has been reserved for this time.

The living flow of the love fire rushing out of the open jars is the cumulative explosive power of God changing the world.

In this season unlimited courage is available for each one of us to throw off all restraining ties and beliefs that the fallen world influencers and deceptive forces have used to suppress us.

The power and the glory of love is removing all shyness for us to stand up and move fully into all that God has prepared for us to feast upon, and then to pour out to the world.

We may have, in the past, sought to release the things that God has placed within us. Yet, we may have been stopped by the lid of fear and doubt that has restrained us again and again.


“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.” 1 John 4:18.

Fear is the opposite of faith. Doubt and unbelief are the opposite of belief.

The lid holding back the release of the fullness of the love and power provisions of God in our individual lives is the lack of faith and believing. It is the fact of not seeing and believing the truth and reality of God’s provision for us in this life.

In other words, we have been trained improperly. Or said more clearly, we have been taught lies and partial or incomplete truth.

The lid is in the hearts of the people. Thus, the removal of the lid implies that our individual heart (sprit and mind) is being retrained in truth by the love relationship in the presence of God in Christ by the Holy Spirit.

The manifest presence of God connecting fully with Christ in us by the Holy Spirit is the marriage of the Lamb. God is becoming one with us now on earth.

“For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones. For this reason, a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church.” Ephesians 5:30-32.

Greater depth of the written word of God is now opening to be fully understood in the pure holy love of God. As we become one with God in Christ, the Word is made alive and the erroneous or partial interpretations of the word are washing away.

The far greater reality of the truth allows the removal of the lid of fear and doubt. Thus, releasing the unrestrained outpouring of love and all the gifts and provisions that God has placed within each of His individual sons and daughters that are becoming His Body and Bride on earth.


Do not be misguided. No part-time Christian will move in the fullness of provisions and gifts of God.

All aspects of our life are married to God in Jesus in love. Every breath, every heart beat is with and for God. All that we do is service to God whether it is directly in worship and praise or indirectly in serving God by serving His people and His world around us.

All power and wisdom are now available to us as we serve Him as faithful sons and daughters. All things are possible to us and our lives are complete in His kingdom of righteousness, peace and joy that is coming forth on earth.

He has made us to be kings and priests now on earth. (Revelation 1:6. 5:10).

It is truly no longer our life but the life of Christ Jesus living within us that is the life we now live. (Galatians 2:20).


God will not withhold any good thing from those that love Him. (Psalm 84:10-11).

God loves every person. However, it is only the ones who love Him that are truly “in love with Him.”

Being in love with God is a two-way street. It begins with God’s love for us that must be received by man and reflected back to Him in praise from unrestrained adoration and affection for Him, to be truly in love with Him. (1 Corinthians 2:9-10).

God is not and will not withhold the fullness of His kingdom from those who are truly in love with Him. Nor will He give the fullness of His kingdom to those who are not in love with Him.

The reality of Christ Jesus manifest on earth is now in anyone who is in love with God. When two are more people that are truly in love with God come together in agreement, Christ Jesus and His kingdom fullness are manifest with them now on earth. “For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:20.

Christ Jesus the Lord, Savior and King is now here establishing the kingdom of God, first in His people and then out from them to reclaim and restore the world to the kingdom of God.

When there are groups of many people truly in love with God in agreement, the King and His kingdom are manifest on earth. All that which is in their hands, all that they own or have authority over, then becomes a part of the fullness of the kingdom of God. Heaven’s resources of provisions and gifts are given to them to rule on earth now as kings and priests with God.


Depart, depart, go out from there; touch no unclean thing; go out from the midst of her; purify yourselves, you who bear the vessels of the Lord.”

Isaiah 52:11

A total division occurs as those in love with God separate from the followers of sin and darkness in this world. There is separation from the sin of the “tree of knowledge” lifestyle as the New Jerusalem pure holy Bride city of God’s love fully reigns on earth. Nothing that defiles can enter the city of God’s kingdom rule on earth. (2 Corinthians 6:14-18) (Revelation 21).

God is NOT causing mankind to suffer by waiting for Him to do something for the kingdom to come. The kingdom is fully available now for anyone and everyone who will go all-in fully in love with God. The kingdom is now fully available for any group small or large from two or three to whole cities, states and nations of the world.

On God’s part the kingdom of God and all of its benefits are now fully available to the whole world.



“Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom”. Luke 12:32.
