Will Someone Please Turn On The Lights?
Ouch! Just bumped into another spiritual truth! It is so dark in this place that I can hardly see anything. I know generally where things are, but I am black and blue from finding them. It would be nice if someone would turn on the light so that I could truly see.
The Need for Revelation
Unfortunately, relative to true revelation, that is where many of us are right now (including me.) We see through a glass darkly and prophesy in part. Even the best among us are bumbling around in partial darkness, not because we cannot see, but because we lack illumination from God to see.
As one of my good friends pointed out, it is not like we have “no’ light. It is just that, to varying degrees, the dimmer switch is turned down and, compared to what is available, the light is pretty dim.
The truth is, everything makes sense when God turns on the light fully. When we are still in partial darkness, with so much confusion, it may not seem like that is possible. However, consider Jesus as a child,
“ And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions. And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers.”
Luke 2: 46,47
Why were all that heard Jesus astonished? Why were these “doctors” of the law so amazed? Again Jesus said,
“Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be? 10 Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?”
The answer as to why Jesus knew so much more than the greatest minds of His generation is because of walking in the light. That light gave Jesus revelation and thus understanding in the scriptures that no man on Earth possessed. The mind of God was the mind of Christ because he became one with His father. Obviously, because God wrote the book, if you have the mind of God then you know what He said and meant.
You have no need that any man teach you
It is written,
“But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.:
1 John 2: 27
I have come to believe that what we are lacking is only the Spirit of God and not further teaching. We do not understand the things of God simply because our understanding requires spiritual illumination. When the dimmer switch is on low, it does not matter if your eye sight is 20/20 because because you cannot see without enough light. However, turn that dimmer switch on to full and even a person with 20/200 sight can get around quite easily.
Here is a truth,
“In order to see God’s truth we must have God’s light.”
How does one get the light of God? It is written,
“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”
Therefore, it is in the act of following after Jesus’s pattern that we receive light. It is in the act of picking up our cross and following him that the path before us become brilliantly lit. It is through obedience to our heavenly Father that we walk in the light of life. Here is a truth,
“All light, in whatever form, is a reflection of God’s glory.”
This means that we must listen to what the Holy Spirit says every hour of everyday. It means constant communion with Jesus and His Father. God still speaks today if we will just have ears to hear what His Spirit is saying to this generation.
So we come to the gifts of the Spirit. My friends, the gifts that God has given you were never meant to be hidden and left unused. They are given for a the common good. When our gifts are hidden we lack the necessary means to prosper in and overcome this world. Our gifts are meant to work in unison together so that the body of Christ can be built up in their most holy faith. So many of us needlessly suffer because we are disconnected and thus ineffectual.
The bottom line is that we must join with one another. We must lay down our lives for Christ and come together as one in Him. We cannot afford to be separated any longer and go about our lives as if we were independent islands. This may sound like a hyperbole but here is a present truth,
“Unite under God or perish under Satan.”
We have the internet, we have cell phones, we have cars, and we can even fly across the sky on planes. Those who hear the Spirit need to take whatever actions are necessary to connect with one another. We must lay down our hurts and our pet doctrines and simply allow His Holy Spirit to flow between us in strong revelation so that together we might have the the mind of Christ. We must take our position in the Body of Christ and each do our part to support the whole. We must liberate ourselves so that we might avoid being bound by darkness.
We have entered the time of strong delusion
There is a general darkness that is falling upon the world. Everyone who is spiritually aware feels it. It is a supernatural darkness that is blinding those of this generation who have refused to see the light of the son of God. At this time we must come together and share our lives so that the light we carry within each us us (the Holy Spirit) can bind us together.
As I have said before, we are further into strong delusion that anyone really understands. It is here, it is all around us, and no one can withstand this demonic darkness alone.
A word to the wise is sufficient.
A special apostolic message about the coming darkness.
How can I apply this teaching to my life?
It is time to dedicate all to God. It is time to cast off the chains that bind you and emerge from your cocoon to become what God made you to be. Freedom! Be a manifestation of God on this Earth to a lost and dying generation and call them come and give their lives to the Son of God. No longer are you going to allow the Devil to oppress you by being alone. No longer are you going to allow the Devil to hold you down and beat you into submission to his ungodly will! It is time to break every chain. Rise up and join the army of God!
Watch this video and turn it up allowing God to liberate you. Make the dedications that He brings to your heart. Take action! It is time to move with God! You are destined to be part of nothing less than the ManChild who will deal a death wound to the Beast and put him down for a 1000 years! You are a warrior and a child of the Most High! God is with you! Amen!
