“For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the LORD will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you” (Isaiah 60:2).
THE SON OF GOD IS THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD!! SPIRITUAL TRUTH CAN ONLY BE UNDERSTOOD THROUGH THE “LIGHT” OF THE INDWELLING CHRIST AND THE REVELATION OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. “And the disciples came and said to Him, ‘Why do You speak to them in parables?’ He answered and said to them, ‘Because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given’” (Matthew 13:10).
THE MEANING AND UNDERSTANDING OF THE DEEP THINGS OF GOD CAN ONLY BE DISCERNED THROUGH THE SPIRIT OF GOD DWELLING IN THE MAN WHO HAS BEEN BORN AGAIN OF THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST! MY WORD PRONOUNCES THE MIND OF GOD, THE WISDOM OF GOD, AND THE COMING JUDGMENT OF GOD UPON THE SIN AND DARKNESS AROUND YOU. WORLD EVENTS CAN ONLY BE RIGHTLY INTERPRETED THROUGH THE REVELATION OF GOD TO YOUR UNDERSTANDING. THE TRUTHS, PURPOSES, AND WILL OF GOD FOR MAN WILL ONLY BE KNOWN AND UNDERSTOOD THROUGH THE LIGHTED LENS OF THE SPIRIT OF GOD. FILL YOUR BEING WITH THE LIGHT OF CHRIST THROUGH BEING FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT AND WALK AS CHRIST WALKED AND DO HIS WORKS. “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light!” (Ephesians 5:8).
MY CHILDREN, I DECLARE UNTO YOU THAT AT THIS VERY HOUR THE DARKNESS AROUND YOU IS BEING TURNED INTO GROSS DARKNESS. SATAN WOULD HAVE YOU THINK THE DARKNESS IS INPENETRABLE BUT I SAY UNTO YOU: “I will bring the blind by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known. I will make darkness light before them, and crooked places straight. These things I will do for them, and not forsake them” (Isaiah 42:16). THE HAPPENINGS OF THIS HOUR AS THEY RELATE TO THE END OF THIS AGE ARE ONLY DISCERNIBLE BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD. COME OUT OF THE DARKNESS OF DESPAIR AND ANGUISH OVER THE THINGS YOU SEE COMING AND WALK WITH ME IN THE LIGHT! I DECLARE TO YOU: “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light!” (Ephesians 5:8).
THE CHILDREN OF LIGHT MUST ENGAGE THE DARKNESS WITH THE SPIRIT OF GOD AND THE GOD-GIVEN TRUTH AND LIGHT WITHIN THEM. DOES YOUR LOVE FOR GOD AND HIS CHRIST ENCOMPASS THE SOULS OF THE LOST AND THE NEEDS OF OTHERS? ARE YOU WILLING TO ENGAGE THE SPIRITS OF DARKNESS AND EVIL AROUND YOU TO FREE THOSE SEEKING THE TRUTHS OF GOD? THE LOST MAY ONLY FIND THEIR WAY TO GOD THROUGH THE TRUTH IN YOU AND THEIR DARKNESS CAN ONLY BE BROKEN BY YOUR LIGHT! WILL THE PEOPLE OF THIS GENERATION BE ABLE TO SAY: “The people who sat in darkness saw a great light, and upon those who sat in the region and shadow of death light has dawned?” (Matthew 4:16).
MANY OF YOU HAVE NOT YET SOUGHT MY PURPOSES FOR YOUR LIFE, OR THE SPIRITUAL WORKS I HAVE CHOSEN FOR YOU TO DO THROUGH THE LEADING OF MY SPIRIT. YOU HAVE ALLOWED YOURSELVES TO BE TORN DOWN BY THE DESTRUCTIONS OF SATAN IN YOUR LIFE AND ALSO THE LIVES AROUND YOU. INSTEAD OF YOU TAKING YOUR AUTHORITY IN CHRIST AND OVERCOMING SATAN, HE HAS MESMERIZED YOU THROUGH FEAR AND DECEIVED YOU ABOUT HIS POWER OVER THE CHILDREN OF GOD. SATAN CAN REMOVE NOTHING FROM MY CHILDREN THAT THEY DO NOT ALLOW HIM TO TAKE. “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you” (Luke 10:19).
SATAN LIES AND DECEIVES THE CHILDREN OF GOD. YOU MUST THEREFORE DEDICATE YOURSELF TO ME AND TO MY WORD IN PREPARATION FOR MY PURPOSES IN YOUR LIFE!! HE WOULD TELL YOU THAT THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO TO STOP HIS WORKS. HEAR AND BELIEVE MY WORDS AND WRITE THEM ON THE TABLE OF YOUR HEART! “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:4). RISE UP, MY CHILDREN, BE CLEANSED FROM YOUR WEAKNESS AND DOUBTS AND ASK ME TO FILL YOU WITH THE FULLNESS OF MY SPIRIT AND MY OVERCOMING POWER. THIS IS THE HERITAGE OF MY CHILDREN. “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world — our faith” (1 John 5:4).
SOME OF YOU HAVE BECOME LUKEWARM AND HAVE LEFT YOUR FIRST LOVE FOR ME. OTHERS ARE WEAK BECAUSE THEY HAVE NOT PARTAKEN OF MY WORD AND PRAYER TO STRENGTHEN THEIR FAITH NOR HAVE THEY ASKED FOR MY SPIRIT TO EMPOWER AND DIRECT THEIR PATH. MANY OF YOU HAVE GREAT NEEDS, YET YOU DO NOT “COME TO ME OR ASK FOR THE HELP YOU NEED!” “…You fight and war. Yet you do not have because you do not ask” (James 4:2).
MANY OF YOU HAVE NOT SOUGHT THE LORD YOUR GOD FOR MY WILL NOR HAVE YOU MADE ME THE SUPREME RULER OF YOUR LIFE. YOU HAVE BEEN BOUGHT WITH A PRICE AND YOU ARE NOT YOUR OWN, BUT YOU HAVE NOT GIVEN ME MY RIGHTFUL PLACE AS LORD OF YOUR LIFE. YOU HAVE NEVER BECOME MY SERVANT! MY WILL FOR YOU IS TO BE GIVEN TOTALLY TO ME, TO BE FILLED WITH MY SPIRIT, AND FINISH MY EARTHLY WORKS. ONLY WHEN YOU ARE GIVEN TO ME ARE YOU COMPLETELY UNDER MY DIVINE PROTECTION!! IT IS NOT TOO LATE TO REPENT AND BECOME A VESSEL TO BE USED OF GOD AND ONE WHO GLORIFIES MY NAME! “Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up” (James 4:7-10).
MY CHILDREN, YOU ARE CALLED BY THE LORD YOUR GOD TO OVERCOME THE WORLD AS I OVERCAME THE WORLD AND SAT DOWN AT THE RIGHT HAND OF MY FATHER. THERE IS GREAT REWARD WHEN YOU OVERCOME THE WORLD FOR MY NAMESAKE AND GLORIFY ME THROUGH YOUR WORKS. THERE ARE REWARDS FOR TAKING YOUR PLACE IN THE ARMY OF GOD AND OVERCOMING SIN AND THE FLESH, AND FOR DEVOTING YOURSELVES TO THE WORK OF GOD AS THE LORD OF YOUR LIFE. I AM A JEALOUS GOD, AND YOU ARE TO HAVE NO OTHER GODS BEFORE ME. HERE ARE SOME OF THE GREAT REWARDS GIVEN IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION TO THOSE WHO FIGHT A GOOD FIGHT AND OVERCOME SATAN, THE WORLD, AND THE SINS OF THE FLESH:
(1) REVELATION 2:7 “To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.”
(2) Revelation 2:11 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes shall not be hurt by the second death.”
(3) Revelation 2:17 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it.”.
(4) Revelation 2:26 “And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations — 27 ‘He shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the potter’s vessels shall be broken to pieces’ — as I also have received from My Father;28 “and I will give him the morning star.
(5) Revelation 3:5 “He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.
(6) Revelation 3:12 “He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. And I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.
(7) Revelation 3:21 “To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.
The reward for sin and the rejection of Jesus Christ as the only savior of mankind is eternal separation from God and judgment. If we fail of God’s grace it is totally our fault for He has given to us everything that pertains unto life and godliness. We are given great and precious promises that we might partake of His divine nature. (See 2Peter 1:3-10.)
My prayer: Dearest heavenly Father and Jesus Christ the divine Son of God, I bow before you and give you my life. From henceforth I want my life to be all about you, and I want you as my “Lord and Savior!” Take over my heart and will and I will be yours, body, soul, and spirit. Forgive my sins and the sins I have committed against others. Cleanse and purify me through your blood. I will keep your commandments and be obedient in all things. Where I am weak make me strong through your spirit. Show me the purpose for my life and teach me to live to glorify you. Give me a great love and appreciation of who you are. Give me a greater understanding of the things of god. Prepare me to fulfill your purposes for my life. I choose the riches and glory in Christ over the things of this world. I love you forever! Amen.
