Great darkness has invaded the once godly western nations. And now both judgment and great light are at the door to destroy the works of darkness and increase the light to a much greater brilliance. How is all this happening? What part do we have in this most volatile season of change?
Understanding Light and Darkness
Where the light is not, darkness reigns.
Where the light is dim, darkness invades.
Where the light is brilliant, darkness is dissolved.
As it is in the natural, so is it in the spiritual.
Darkness requires no energy. It is the default condition of a fallen world apart from God. The darkness will effortlessly be where the light of God is not. Darkness cannot be where the light of God is brilliant with the brightness of the love, wisdom, and power of God.
Power from God must be available to release the energy of light to dissolve darkness.
Wisdom from God must be available to provide the ability to effectively release and restrain the power to perfectly accomplish the will and way of God from heaven on earth. Both power and wisdom flow in the pure holy love of God. Therefore, God’s love is the source of all light and life. God and His love are seen as the enemy of all who abide in darkness.
The only source of power to dissolve darkness is the throne of God, the seat of all power. We must be directly connected to the throne of God through Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit to flow the love, power, and wisdom to eradicate darkness on earth with light from heaven.
Jesus is the light of the world. Those who are of the darkness and without the light of God hate the name of Jesus, or Yahushua, the true biblical name.
Light relates to life. Darkness relates to lack of life or death.
In the beginning God said, “Let there be light,” and light overcame the darkness upon earth. Instead of darkness the default condition of the world became the light of God in the beautiful creation of the Garden of Eden.
Adam was created in the image of God, and the light and life of God were breathed into him. Adam and Eve were told to be fruitful and multiply to fill the earth. Adam and Eve were the seed of the kingdom of Heaven or Kingdom of God on earth, and were commissioned to fill the earth with people after their own kind which was Spirit beings of the life and light of God in human bodies. Thus the prevailing darkness on earth was to be replaced with the light of God to rule and reign for the glory of God across the whole earth through the multiplied people of God filling the earth.
When Adam fell, the pure seed of God was corrupted and darkness was released on earth in the seed of Adam. Thus the default condition of Planet Earth again became darkness.
The Brilliant Light of God’s Seed Restored
Christ Jesus came to earth as the “last Adam” to restore mankind to His original design of light and life of God from heaven to fill the whole earth with the light and life of God. He came as the pure Seed of God to be fruitful and multiply the light of God across the whole earth in His purified body and bride. Thus returning the default condition of earth to the light and life of God in and through His many purified holy Sons in whom Christ dwells by the Holy Spirit.
Brother and sisters, this is why you were born and born again in the image of God and the breath of the life of Christ Jesus breathed into you by the Holy Spirit to restore the planet to the light of God. God is again saying for us to be fruitful and multiply to fill the earth with His light.
All of the attributes of God are made available from the storehouse of heaven to empower the children of God with supernatural love, power, and wisdom to carry and release the light of God in Christ to enlighten the entire world with the brilliance of the light of the glory of God from heaven on earth.
No matter what area or arena of life God has placed you in or whatever natural field of endeavor God has engaged you in, your primary purpose is to restore the light of God to all the world by releasing the supernatural brilliant light of God in Christ Jesus in you by the Holy Spirit. The great mystery of Christ in you, the hope of glory that Paul spoke about in Colossians 1:27.
For the most part, the nations of the world have failed to be restored in the supernatural brilliant light of God.
In the United States of America where I live, the supernatural light of God has been largely restrained and weakened by the intellectual excluding of God in the affairs of the nation. The nation took a giant step in that direction years ago with a major work of darkness called, “the separation of church and state.”
The “separation of church and state” was preceded by the watered down social gospel of lukewarm church systems. The rejection of the supernatural reality of being baptized with the Holy Spirit and FIRE by many, if not most of the religious systems, caused them to produce only a very dim light, and the darkness invaded the nation. Our educational systems were handed over to the darkness when God was removed from the schools of learning beginning at the highest levels and filtering down to invade all levels and all means of education.
Fighting against this darkness is not fruitful. The darkness is not the problem. It is just doing what darkness does. That is, it fills every place that is void of the supernatural spiritual light of God. The problem is the lack of the brilliant light of God that dissolves the darkness.
Many, if not most, religious church systems have mistakenly interpreted light to mean intellectual knowledge and understanding about God. The brilliant light of God is Spirit saturation of our entire lives, our hearts, spirits, souls, and bodies. It involves the manifest presence of God in Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit abiding within us forming a direct connection with the throne of God receiving impartation of heavenly data and understanding from the mind of Christ. It is supernatural reality of God within us and with us. The impartation of God’s wisdom, power, and love is limitless.
The cooperation with powerful holy angels (ministering spirits) working together with us makes all things possible, and nothing impossible to us.
There is a great humbling that is coming to the nations.
As the darkness enacts its devastation, the failure of the systems of life and government will bring even the strongest and most prideful people to their knees in submission by either the love of God in His provision or by the painful cleansing judgment. God’s love for His people and His world causes the cleansing judgment. God’s judgment on earth is never for punishment of His people. Jesus took our punishment on the cross. It is always for correction of His people causing us to seek higher levels of life with Him. It is also for the cleansing of the earth by removing those who are ungodly, always evil, and will not turn to God to be changed.
Yes, the devil is behind all the wicked stuff going on. Yet he is defeated and only able to tempt and destroy by the power given to him by human beings. Prideful people who will not fully submit to God cannot resist the devil and his darkness.
“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.
“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land,” 2 Chronicles 7:14.
Living in the Spirit
Deep spiritual reality is far beyond human understanding. The things of God are a mystery to the natural mind and cannot be explored by natural thinking. Only by the Spirit are the deep things of God received, and they may or may not be rationally understood. However, by the Spirit there is a knowing of things that cannot be known otherwise. There are powerful works done by the Spirit that no man can do in the natural.
It is rapidly becoming more and more urgent for God’s people to move in the realm of supernatural spiritual reality. As cataclysmic events occur it will be vital to be in the right place doing the right things at the right time. This can only be accomplished by living by the Spirit and walking in the Spirit.
“If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit,” Galatians 5:25.
