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!
In His Love Michèle
