LET THERE BE LIGHT

Divine Light

And God said, Let there be light  (Genesis 1: 3, see also vs. 14-18).  For God Who said, Let light shine out of darkness, has shone in our hearts so as (to beam forth) the Light for the illumination of the knowledge of the majesty and glory of God (as it is manifest in the Person and is revealed) in the face of Jesus Christ (the Messiah).  However, we possess this precious treasure (the divine Light of the Gospel) in (frail, human) vessels of earth, that the power and grandeur and exceeding greatness of the power may be shown to BE FROM GOD and NOT from ourselves. … Always carrying about in the body the liability and exposure to the same putting to death that the Lord Jesus suffered, so that the LIFE of Jesus also may be shown forth by and in our bodies (2 Corinthians 4: 6-10).

It seems that everywhere we turn these days, we see and hear incredible stories of violence, immorality, destruction, storms, death of thousands, hunger, increasing poverty, and so on.  I totally believe that media/technology is a tool the enemy has taken control of in most nations of the world, to instill a deep FEAR into the minds of the people.  He uses it to accomplish his ultimate goal:  getting us to take our eyes off Jesus Christ (LIFE) and destroying our FAITH and TRUST in our Haven of peace and rest (Jesus).  It is interesting to me that at the same time, the church as a whole seems to be in a state of oblivion (spiritual blindness) to all that we have in and through Christ crucified, resurrected, and the power and authority we have if we would just WAKE UP and use it over this ALREADY DEFEATED FOE!

I am personally bothered by the “negative words” people speak over their lives and day-to-day situations.  We have become desensitized to the HOPE that there is in Christ (the Gospel) because  we are actively embracing all  the propaganda that the enemy feeds us.  Jesus firmly addresses this very issue in Matthew 6: 24 where He tells us that, “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will stand by and be devoted to one  and despise and be against the other.  You cannot serve God and mammon (worldly pleasures, or whatever is trusted in over and above God)”.  Today  and in the coming days we are going to have to focus and take an active STAND for what we choose to believe and trust in… choose ye this day whom you are going to serve!

I want to also remind you that it is only by God’s grace that we can make hard choices on a daily basis.  Satan does know your weaknesses and he will capitalize on these as he trys to get his yoke (hold) on aspects of your life.  It is in times like this that we look to God’s TRUTH and stand on His life-giving promises, for Satan can only take hold of what we give to him.  In Christ, we are more than conquerors and we should be walking by faith in our position in Christ.  Jesus told us that it was expedient that He should return to heaven for then Holy Spirit would come and indwell all His disciples, allowing us to do even GREATER works than He did.  Holy Spirit  breathes life into any situation; He is Divine and Pure energy and He will actively help you confront the demons from hell that have taken control in your life.  It is NOT by your might nor by your power…it IS by Holy Spirit’s (Romans 15: 19; 1 Corinthians 2: 4, 5; 2 Corinthians 12: 9; 2 Timothy 1: 7; 2 Peter 1: 3-8).

Also, it is good to remember that we are human and we will make a few bad choices and take a wrong turn here and there.  Thank God His mercy (new every morning) and forgiveness.  If we daily seek Him and acknowledge our mistakes, He eagerly forgives us and puts back onto the narrow road.  We are, after all, only earthen vessels and the cracks we have in these earthen vessels have created a revealing humility;  in such a way that His Light is much more able to shine through us to light the path so others can find Jesus and LIFE.  Jesus tells us, “Let your light so shine before men that they may see your moral excellence and your praiseworthy, noble, and good deeds and recognize and honor and praise and glorify your Father Who is in heaven” (Matthew 5: 16). 

God bless you, my sister and brother… we are works in process, but as we look to Jesus, He will perfect us for the day of His soon return!
