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.
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.
1 Peter 2:9 NASB
His marvelous light calls us.
The light of Jesus is His own Light, described as marvelous, a thing of wonder and awe. This Light is a gift of all significance – full of the riches of position and promise, offering relationship in God of the deepest bond. And the Light is something to which we are called.
“Calling” always implies there must be an answer. God offers. God calls. What is your answer?
You are called…out of darkness. Out! To come into the marvels of His light, you have to leave the darkness… Have you left it? Have you “come out?”
Every person knows what is darkness. We know. We need no explanation of darkness, it is our lifelong companion. We know well the darkness, more familiar with it than light are we. Anything that is not transparent and issuing from God is darkness.
There can be no pocket of darkness, no pet in the shadows. No hate, no lust, no secret bitter soul. We have to leave whatever is darkness.
His marvelous light will liberate us.
Darkness and light are perpetual enemies ever locked in mortal wrestling. Each of us takes a side in the match. We side with darkness if we harbor it. We side with light when we want it. And we are pinned to the floor by the side we choose.
If you want Light, and choose Light, then Light will capture you, enthrall you with Himself, and then liberate you in order to FILL you.
Hold on to darkness and light will leave you. Harbor some little darkness and it will take you over. Darkness will be all you will have.
I have come as light into the world, that everyone who believes in Me may not remain in darkness.
