We are meant to embody the Light which has been before the beginning of creation and to be lifted above lesser lights that cannot raise us to the perfect Light. God has been showing us that even though he has enlightened our eyes, we also need to be opened to the riches of His grace.
Ephesians 3:16, ‘May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the [Holy] Spirit [Himself indwelling your innermost being and personality].
And again true to His words, God through His servants and Pastor Emeka Egwuchukwu enlightened us during the morning session of Day 2 of the Feast of Lights.
Gen 1:3-15, ‘
And God said, Let there be light; and there was light…’
Initially, God said and commanded light forth. He commanded the light designated for the living soul. This light was particularly assigned for the living soul. This light has been before the sun and the moon. This light was what the sun and moon was created by. The living soul was created by this light; the living soul could name all the creatures. That naming was not ordinary. He was igniting creation by the ability within him. Whatever Adam called them, they were. He enlightened them. How? He was a priest and there was a need for one to make them what was in the Book of God. They needed something or someone who will ignite them, a priest who will go into the achives and partake of the writings of God and bring forth creation. Adam was not an ordinary being. He was one privileged by light.
Man sinned and fell short of the glory of God. If it is glory, it is light. And when man fell short, he fell short of the Light. If Adam had been faithful with the light proclaimed in the beginning, he would have fellowshipped into the perfect light. The reason for that light being given was to bring them into the perfect light.
The danger of light is enormous. And this is expressed in Hebrews 6:4-6,
‘For it is impossible [to restore and bring again to repentance] those who have been once for all enlightened, who have consciously tasted the heavenly gift and have become sharers of the Holy Spirit, And have felt how good the Word of God is and the mighty powers of the age and world to come, If they then deviate from the faith and turn away from their allegiance–[it is impossible] to bring them’.
God doesn’t pardon that sin of living the realm of His light. The light of creation was so that there were shadows of turning. This is why Lucifer could turn. In the perfect light, there is no shadow of turning. If Lucifer had entered this, he would have been a pillar.
‘Who makes winds His messengers, flames of fire His ministers.
This perfect light is what holds heaven. In fact He is heaven. And this is why the angels cannot take their eyes off Him. If they do, they lose their footing. This light is what strengthens the cherubs. They dare not take their eyes off Him. As they behold Him, they stay and are sustained.
The cherubim behold His light and this sustains them but the seraphim burn. Burning keeps as a seraph. As you burn, you pour forth. As the seraphs burn, they call on the name of the Lord. Any nation that stops calling the name of the lord will be overcome with darkness. As they cry and burn for Him, he will send light bearers like Gabriel to minister to them.
There should always be a hunger and thirst after righteousness. Man is supposed to hunger and thirst after righteousness. I desire a time when men will delightedly seek for the emergence of light. Men will yet seek and thirst for God. He will put a hunger, by the Holy Ghost and as you seek, you will be helped to knock. It takes knocking to bring the Father. When you knock, the father appears. The Father is light and so are the son and the Holy Ghost. And when they all come, the day is dawn.
God made spaces and inclusions of Gentiles. The light of the Creator was made and designed for every man on earth. The destiny of every man is to end up in light.
IN THE beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself.
It can also be said that in the beginning was the light and the light was with God… This beginning is before that of Genesis. And if John can reach this beginning, then man can live in the perfect light. Before God made creation, He knew and reserved this light for man. He had man in mind and still made man last. When He made creation, he made mad a little lower than angels. But in the world to come, he will make the creations created no partakers. Only man will live in this. Man will bear the Light; the light of the Creator. The light of creation has been born, but God has made man so that he can climb. Even though little lower, He has made man able to grow and migrate. We have been made to receive grace for grace.
God commanded light to shine out of darkness. The essence of the Son coming into the flesh is to show that man can carry and bear the uncreated light. It was to show into all heavens that man will ascend and God will bring to pass all He has promised. He was the Word initially, not the Son. The issue of Sonship is so that He can inherit the Father. God had to use Him as a trial and proof that it is possible for man to be raised. He came as a little child and came as a child just like any man. I perceive that Mary told the boy Jesus when she was raising the child that ‘before I had you, I saw Gabriel and this happened and this happened.’ If a parent tells the child things surrounding the birth of the child, the child learns thing about himself. That he is not an ordinary child. You know Joseph had experiences and would have also told Jesus. They will explain things to the child, things surrounding His dedication. And as these were on going, the child, Jesus became aware.
As the Light of what we are shines and we are visited and initiated, we will become aware of our placement and nature. It is believed that angels would have seen God’s peculiarity of man and they would have exclaimed ‘what is man that You are mindful of Him?’
John told them that he wasn’t the light but those called to this Feast of Lights will be told that in Him, there is no darkness.
[WE ARE writing] about the Word of Life [in] Him Who existed from the beginning, Whom we have heard, Whom we have seen with our [own] eyes, Whom we have gazed upon [for ourselves] and have touched with our [own] hands.
We will get to handle this light. We will arise and we will shine and shine brighter. There is a light of the good day but this light is one that teaches us the light of the perfect day. We will be taught of things much more than food. But we will be established in His grace and not in meat. We will spend good time on light acquisition. When we look back in eternity, we will see that spending our time to acquire light is the good time.
Someone was testifying about heaven and he said heaven was more than anyone has described. But there in heaven, another city, far off was visible to them and they could not get there. And from that realm, a person will come and visit them in their realm and they wanted to follow him but they could not get to that city but only be visited by them. This city far off is one I want to be part of. I don’t want to be visited, I want to be visiting!
You are blessed to be hearing or reading this. We will see these things. We will progress into handling it and profiting by it. God will further help us into laying hold on them. We count on the faithfulness of God and the ability of the Performer.
