The Holy Spirit sends me to tell you today, Child of God, that “You are the light of the world.”
Though we may have heard this a thousand times, when you start looking into the Greek and Hebrew words for light in the Bible, your mind becomes blown. 😃
So many times we think we are nobodies in this world. The spotlight is always on the “stars” in Hollywood, or the sports heroes, or even the rich and famous.
Sometimes we look at others for their looks and beauty but forget who we are in Jesus. We are the LIGHT of the world. This is POWERFUL! YOU are powerful! Full of the LIGHT of GOD!
No longer worry about the darkness, because Father has made you the LIGHT in Christ Jesus by the Spirit of God! So let us arise and SHINE for HIM!
“Beloved. Do you know how you SHINE in this world, My Child? You are the Light of the world.
You have been translated from the Kingdom of darkness into My MARVELOUS Light. It is not a natural or normal or every day light, oh no Dear One. This is Heavenly Illumination.
This is Heavenly Power! Not only does My Light shine upon you but it shines IN you and through you.
You are My Bride. You Radiate My Glory. You shine from the inside out. When you were born again, the Holy Spirit came to dwell in your heart.
I AM He who is Light. I have spoken,” Light be!” and it was. My Divine Light in you brings revelation.
Do not think I have left you “in the dark” about anything. Oh no, My Child. The Holy Spirit brings deep illumination of the things of God.
You shall SEE the Shekinah Glory of your God. My Brightness surrounds you and blinds the eyes of the enemy. You do not just carry a torch, but you ARE My Torch.
You are My Firebrand. The Glorious Fire in you shall be a Light for others dwelling in darkness. Beloved, you shine with God-Colors. Like the Rainbow around the throne of Grace so I have clothed you.
Give thanks and rejoice, My Shining One. You are strengthened with all might, according to MY Glorious Power and I have made you a partaker of the inheritance of the saints in Light, I AM He who has delivered you from the power of darkness, and have translated you into the kingdom of My Dear Son, in whom you have redemption through His blood, even the forgiveness of sins.
As you SEE who you are in Me, as you let your Light shine, the Atmospheres shall change, the way shall open up before you and the enemy shall flee.
He is of the darkness and the night and you are a Child of Light and of the Day. As I AM clothed with Splendor and Majesty, so are you, Beloved. You wear My Robe of Righteousness and Garments of Salvation.
My Face is forever shining upon you with the Light of Heaven. I AM the Glorious God of All Light and Life!
Don’t hide from the world but go forth in My Glory. My Light shall QUICKEN your mortal body. My Light brings LIFE. You are the true Light Bearers in this world today.
Arise and shine, My Bright One! You are free from every imperfection. YOU are the Light of the world!
You are of those spoken in the book Daniel, “Those who are wise will SHINE like the Brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever!””
LIGHT : Strong’s Greek G5457: A source of light, radiance. Illuminating power. From phao; luminousness. Light (especially in terms of its results, what it manifests); in the NT,the manifestation of God’s self-existent Life; Divine illumination to reveal and impart life through Christ. Daylight, also Firelight. TO SHINE. Heavenly Light. A heavenly light, such as surrounds angels when they appear on earth, 2 Corinthians 11:14, and illumines the place where they appear, Acts 12:7; a light of this kind shone around Paul when he was converted to Christ, Acts 22:6. FIRE, a lamp or torch. BRIGHTNESS (Latin splendor) Revelation 22:5; of a lamp, John 5:35 (where it symbolizes his rank, influence, worth, mighty deeds); Revelation 18:23 (Jeremiah 25:10); of the DIVINE SHECHINAH Revelation 21:24 (Psalm 88:16 ); Isaiah 60:1). Used of that heavenly state, consummate and free from every imperfection, to which the true disciples of Christ will be exalted, equivalent to the kingdom of light, Colossians 1:12. To shine or make manifest, especially by rays. (Biblehub)
“Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a basket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand — shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16 MSG.
“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16 ESV.
“Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.” Daniel 12:3.
“Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear.” Matthew 13:43.
“Rather, as it is written: “ No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no heart has imagined, what God has prepared for those who love Him.” But God has revealed it to us by the Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God” 1 Corinthians 2:9-10.
“Bless the LORD, O my soul! O LORD my God, You are very great; You are clothed with splendor and majesty. He wraps Himself in Light as with a garment; He stretches out the heavens like a tent, laying the beams of His chambers in the waters above, making the clouds His chariot, walking on the wings of the wind.” Psalm 104:1-3.
“Being strengthened with all power according to His glorious might so that you may have full endurance and patience, and joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the light.” Colossians 1:11-12.
