the Light of the World
When you walk into a dark room you don't start fighting the darkness so light
can come. You just cut the lights on. The light of the world does not argue with
darkness, fight, or even try in any way to remove the darkness. It cannot be
extinguished by any darkness. IT IS THE LIGHT! In the presence of light there is
no darkness for light does not have to contend with darkness. Darkness can only
exist in the absence of light. Light is a symbol of spiritual presence and
power. Christ, the Light never has to battle darkness.
Paul said, "Awake thou that sleepest and Christ shall give you light."
In Romans 13: 11-12, "Knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake
out of sleep: … let us put on the armour of light."
Sleep speaks to us of the dream world, the world of illusion, the world of
darkness. In the natural we have found that education brings us into a realm of
more light. Before 1624 only 10% of the population could read. With the
inventing of the printing press it opened a new world to many. Back then the
mentality was keep them dumb (in darkness) and they won't cause trouble. The
same way we see an awakening in the Spirit. Let the priesthood teach people then
they won't start to think for themselves was the idea and the mentality of
religion. But John wrote, "You have an anointing that will teach you all
things and you have need of no man to teach you."
As a babe in Christ I found myself falling into the "latest" move of
the Spirit. I was with those that stood before thousands and convinced them they
all had demons. I saw those that seemed to have good sense biting the legs of
pews and throwing up, manifesting demons. I began to see them everywhere! Then
one day I quit looking for them and they all disappeared. Where did they go? It
seemed only meetings that were looking for them ever saw them. The root word for
demon is "teaching or thought" and if you think they are real then
they are. If you need a big devil then you have one. If you need a battle to
fight then you have one.
BUT when the light comes on… the picture changes. As when awaken from the
dream world we start to see we were only shadow boxing. Where was the war going
on? It was in our heavens, in our thinking. We just didn't think right. We
needed light that would show us the truth. At the cross the works of the devil
was destroyed. If fact in most places where devil/satan is used it should be
"the accuser". Is there a finger in your heavens pointing in
accusation at anyone? Then you have a devil in your heavens! Rom. 16:20, "til
the accuser be put under your feet." Isaiah 58 says," if you will take
away the putting forth of the finger then your soul will become a well watered
garden." Is your soul well watered or a dry and thirsty place? CUT THE
LIGHT ON!!! There is only ONE power in our universe not two.
Its amazing how religion can paint this picture of the giant devil running
around destroying what God said WAS GOOD. They even have him with one third of
the angel's….can you find that in scripture? Its not there just a man made
doctrine. And what is the backbone? Fear and the word deception keep us locked
You want to slay THE DRAGON? Have you ever seen a dragon or is it an imaginary
being? Look in Isaiah 9:15-16, "The ancient and honorable, he is the
head… (Jesus said, the traditions of man make the word of none effect) and the
prophet that teacheth lies, he is the tail( lies…you are human… any voice
that tries to pull you under or down is the tail.) We are called to the heavens
and eagles cannot live in chicken pens. OUR DESTINY IS THE HEAVENS…. Not to
warm some pew or be apart of some man's ego trip.
"..and CHRIST SHALL GIVE YOU LIGHT." This is a working out in our
experience as there are no formulas but when light comes, there is peace because
there is nothing to contend with. Light does not contend with darkness for in
the presence of Light there is NO darkness.
and shake off the dust of 6,000
years of thinking
As the desire of our hearts become to know God we must be open to change. The
traditions must go and we must trust that He who began this work is able to
finish it. Our hope is this LIGHT will come into expression. And it all starts
in us. Don't look outside to find it for it is within first.
