Today, The Holy Spirit was speaking to me about LIGHT.
He gave me this verse,
“You were once darkness but now you are Light in The LORD.” Ephesians.5:8
Think on this Beloved. WE ARE LIGHT.
We don’t just have light —or shine a light — or even just reflect God’s Light— but we are a new creation, we ARE LIGHT — we are His LIGHT BEINGS — made in our Father’s image!
“Beloved. You are Light in Me. You are a Light Being made in My Image.
This is why the enemy fights you so hard, My Child. He desired to be the light, as I AM the Light. For Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.
Did you catch that, Dear One? Satan is NOT light, but tries to deceive people into believing he is a light being.
Many in the world are being deceived by him. But he is NOT Light. He is a poser. He is a deceiver. He is darkness. He is jealous of the True Light Beings.
Here is truth: You are the ones who shine for Me. There are no Light Beings but those who are New Creations in Christ Jesus.
You are the True Light Beings, for you are Light in The LORD. You emit the Brilliant Light of your Abba Father.
You are a Lamp and a Torch burning brightly with My Brilliant Light. You shine with My Pure Fire. You are never in the dark for your whole being is Light.
My Light surrounds you and is in you. You are My Brilliant and Sparkling One. As I AM, so are you in this world. As My Face shines upon you, so also your face shines with My Glory!
You are clothed with My Splendor and Majesty. I have manifested My Glorious Light in you. I AM in you and you in Me.
I have given you My Glory. I have wrapped you in LIGHT as with a garment.
Arise and shine, Beloved! Darkness can NEVER overcome LIGHT. Darkness can never overcome you!
Those who look upon Me are made RADIANT with Joy; your face shall never be ashamed.
You are My Burning One. This is no small light you carry but you burn with the very Flame of Yahweh, the Pure Light of Heaven.
Your Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness will NEVER extinguish it!”
