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.
This word “light” used of God takes Him straight into the realm of enigma, into the barely knowable, the great beyond-us. Light is a spiritual fundamental, referred to many times in the New Testament. It speaks of God’s glory and transparency, the fiery power of purity emanating from Him, but the power of Light, the force of Light, even the definition of Light, is a mystery.
Light Begets Light
Where He shines all is not only seen but purified and actually becomes Light. On whom he beams, luminosity is imparted. The one on whom Light shines, becomes filled with light.
Paul was struck by a voice bathed in light so bright that it was blinding and all around him fell down. The Light struck him, exposed him, and radically altered him. One man fell down under the Light, a different one stood up and stumbled away.
Light is a power, an energy that fills one who looks on, stays under, drinks of…Light. So that one who lives under light is filled with the very light, and becomes himself…illumined in every part.
