“Let It Be Dark?”

“Isn’t it supposed to be, ‘Let there be light?’ Don’t be so negative.” a friend quipped back to a minister.

And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.”

John 3:19-20

A Bible teacher said it’s time now for the Bride to make ready for Christ’s second coming. Stay focused on the Lord. And let go of those who are perishing.

“For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light.”                                                                            Ephesians 5:8

“Above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.”                       Ephesians 6:16

The Fire Comes

“John answered, saying to all, ‘I indeed baptize you with water; but One mightier than I is coming, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.’ ” Luke 3:16

Burning yellow embers is Your fiery sunset, Lord God. 

You, God are the Deliverer, the Provider, the Hope giver, the Life giver, not like it was – it’s all new (2 Samuel 22:2, Psalm 28, Romans 15:13, John 1:4)

“Each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is.” 1 Corinthians 3:13

  • Not the same – it’s going to be new (Revelation 21:5)
  • *Reinhard Bonnke has passed into eternal fellowship with Jesus.  Comfort and Peace to his family and close friends.
  • New ‘American Dream’ malls
  • The Lord has promised to never destroy the earth again by flood waters. (Genesis 9:11, 2 Peter 3:10)

Be a lamp, a fire in your communities, your families, your jobs!

“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.” Matthew 5:14

Early this year, Pastor John Arnott of Catch the Fire, Toronto said that God would do many new things in 2019.

 

Not What I Think

“Your word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”   Psalm 119:105

At the suggestion that I search google as to what the Bible is: that’s head knowledge!  It’s what the Bible says that I believe, what is the truth.

God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”                                         Jesus explains in John 4:24

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.”                  Hebrews 4:12-13 (Biblegateway)

“Never enthrone common sense.”  Oswald Chambers August 9, My Utmost

“Your truth shall be my shield & buckler.” Psalm 91:4

Namaste

Jesus says: “I am the Light of the world (John 8:12)”.

Revelation 21:23, “And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.” Revelation 22:5, “…the Lord God gives them light…” “Your word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path,” Psalm 119:105.  “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.  And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from darkness. (Genesis 1:3-4)”

Your track record, dear Lord, is spotless.
