For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Therefore He says:
“Awake, you who sleep,
Arise from the dead,
And Christ will give you light.”
[Ephesians 5:5-14] NKJV
As we walk with God He is filling us with more of Himself. He is light and as we become more like Him, we are going from glory to glory.
The light of Christ disentangles us from the world, as our mind is renewed. As we allow His light to permeate our very innermost being, we are delivered of all those things which have entangled us and opened the wrong doors. Those things are exposed because everything is revealed by His light. The light of His life overwhelms our own desires, our past, our lusts & flesh, and we become overcomers. He leads us through the door of His eternal love into His marvellous light!
As we allow the light of God to come in and shine on us, all things become visible. Those things God wants to manifest in us of Himself become visible. Like Jesus when He transfigured, we will light up like beacons! We will be like Him as we partake of Him. We will arise and SHINE ‘for your light has come and the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.’ We will be so transformed, that darkness will be overwhelmed!
Enoch walked so closely with God he did not die, he was translated into heaven. He had hundreds of years on earth, walking in purity and intimacy with God. He went from glory to glory, crossing over into the glorious kingdom of our Father, because he became light!
We are light because we are made in the image of our Father! And the more we 'become' like Him, the brighter we will become! He wants to manifest Himself through us, manifest His light through us that we become His light here on this earth. That we become the ‘knowledge of the glory of the Lord’ which will cover the earth, ‘as the waters cover the sea’
The light of His love, of His abundant life, of His peace, of His joy, of His perfection, of His kingdom. The light of His fullness manifest through us here ‘on earth as it is in heaven’.
As deep darkness covers the earth, God is doing an accelerated work! He is going to sweep the world of the impurity of darkness, and manifest His glorious light through us. He is shining His light into every area of our lives that we would awaken and be ready to become all that He is preparing us to be. He is saving His best for last, we are a chosen generation!!! HalleluYah!

You will also be [considered] a crown of glory and splendor in the hand of the Lord,
And a royal diadem [exceedingly beautiful] in the hand of your God. [Isaiah 63:2] AMP
For the last couple of months God has been talking to me about colours – His colours. He has been painting the skies with incredibly amazing sunrises and sunsets. And yet even more dazzling to God are His most precious jewels, His beloved, His Bride.
As we walk the earth with our beautiful God, life can seem hard, even harsh. We don’t feel like His precious jewels and yet as we walk through the things of this life in intimacy with our Beloved, His ways, His light and life, change us from the inside out. As we go from glory to glory, we begin to shine for Him in ways we haven’t yet perceived.
Esther is a type and shadow of the Bride of Christ. In the book we see that the king sent throughout his whole kingdom to find the choicest, most excellent, hand-picked young virgins to become his queen. The same is true of God. Our King is searching throughout His whole Kingdom for the choicest, most excellent jewels to become a crown of glory and splendour and a royal diadem in His hand.
For the eyes of the Lord move to and fro throughout the earth so that He may support those whose heart is completely His. [2 Chronicles 16] AMP
The Lord Yahweh wants to fashion something of incredible splendour for His only begotten Son. A most precious multifaceted Bride, without spot or wrinkle and He won’t settle for anything less than the very best!
“And they shall be Mine, says the Lord Almighty, in that day when I make up My jewels…” [Malachi 3:17] AMP
Why compare the Bride with jewels?
Because of their inestimable VALUE in His sight
Because of their DIVINE CREATION
Because of their RARITY
Because of their BEAUTY
Because of their DURABILITY
Because of their VARIETY
Because of their HISTORY
Because of their glorious DESTINY

……. behold, a door standing open in heaven! And the first voice which I had heard addressing me like [the calling of] a war trumpet said, Come up here, and I will show you what must take place in the future. [Revelation 4:1] AMP
So much is happening in the world and around us as the battle intensifies. All this year God has been saying “Come up here – HIGHER!”. He is saying this to us all, because He wants to share His strategies for the times that are coming upon us.
That we would be ones like eagles soaring up into His presence. As an eagle soars on the thermals of a storm, so we can do this by facing the storms, soaring on the thermals of His love and power, in His strength. In that secret place of complete rest with our Lord Yahweh, He gives us all we need.
As He expands within us and dispels all the things of this world, it fades in the brightness of His love. His peace and strength flood our hearts and our minds, all anxieties and fears have to flee away. The door stands wide open for us to be taken up into the heavenly realms. As we overcome we step into our true inheritance.
Why will you tarry here in darkness,
Why will you wander, sad at heart, -
When Jesus has bidden you, “Rise up,
My love, and come with Me apart?”
By Frances Metcalfe ‘from the book Ladies of Gold by James Maloney’
In times past some were chosen to see into the realm of heaven, Jacob saw a ladder with angels ascending and descending; Isaiah saw the King of Glory seated on His throne and His robe filled the temple; John saw Jesus in His glory and fell down to the ground at the sublime glorious sight of the man who on earth had been his best friend.
In His grace He has opened that door wide to us. As we encounter the God of the seen and unseen realms, we are ‘raptured’ into the heavenlies. There we can see and commune with Jesus and angels. We see beyond the veil and we are changed into His likeness.
He wants us to realise all He has established for us through His son Jesus Christ since before the foundation of the earth. He wants to bring us into full unity with Himself.
Perfect submission, perfect delight,
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
Angels descending, bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.
Blessed Assurance by Fanny J. Crosby
