About Heaven's Rule Series
God set lights in the heavens for ruling, and Heaven does indeed rule. This series looks at the deeper meanings and roles of LIGHT and its affect on our world, our lives and our destinies.
The disciples were given a glimpse of their new life by Christ’s description of Himself as ‘the light.’ It was a call to treasure this Light, believe and depend on the Light, so that when they were born again, they would become sons of Light.
Walk while you have the Light [keep on living by it], so that the darkness does not overtake and overcome you. He who walks about in the dark does not know where he goes [he is drifting]. While you have the Light, believe in the Light [have faith in it, hold to it, rely on it], that you may become sons of the Light and be filled with Light.
John 12:35, 36 AMP
We are children of Light.
We are born again, birthed INTO a life that is Actual Light. We are “sons of light” by inheritance, by the nature of the One who adopted and rebirthed us.
For you are all sons of light and sons of day; we do not belong either to the night or to darkness.
1 Thessalonians 5:5 AMP
We are sons and daughters of Light, by new birth immersed into a type of existence whose nature and essence is…Light. And darkness is to have no effect: no foothold and no attraction for us. We are to be like the Light that formed us and transformed us. We are to be lamps lit with His Light.
Light is accessible where Truth is desirable. Light shines only out of purity, and purity is acquired by repentance over self, releasing the Life within who is Light Himself.
A Life of Light is transparent in motive, clear in purpose and filled with the Real.
The Father’s ultimate goal is that His children would live in the Light, by the Light, and finally, be shining emblems of His Son’s Light, glowing with a power that is palpable and impacting. Light is power. It can ignite a fire, sterilize a wound, destroy shadows and heal disease. Light is answer to question and direction to confusion. Light is Christ present!
God-Light is the power that must reverberate behind words. The presence of Light enables people to see, and it is Light alone that penetrates heart and mind. Light is Truth and the power of Truth. Remember? “I am the Light of the world.”
Children of Light walk in the Light.
And Christ in us is to shine upon the world with fullness, light undiminished, and no dark thing hidden. The “deeds of darkness” – sins petted in secret and kept from Light – eventually surface in shame.
He began saying to His disciples first of all, “Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. But there is nothing covered up that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known. Accordingly, whatever you have said in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in the inner rooms will be proclaimed upon the housetops.”
Luke 12:1-3 NASB
Hypocrisy is merely the pretending role that Darkness plays to imitate the Light. Jesus said, “Walk in the Light…” Walk: a lifestyle of Light, a constant search for Light.
As we come before the Blessed Light, bringing every sin, from simple thought to crafty deed, that sin is sterilized by holy fire. Gazing on Him who glows across the universe, and whose face is “like the sun shining in its strength,” the Light of His countenance burns sin to death, and the sin that defeated us is transformed into easy strength over that very issue.
Keep nothing from Light…for Light is the solution. Light gives purity by exposure and brings you to transparency.
