Awake O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will give you light (Ephesians 5:14).
Awaken to “the hour” now: full-time to wake from sleep; the night is far gone; the day is at hand. Take the light of Christ as a garment, surrounded by fire, an armor of light. Put on the Lord Jesus Christ, the glorified Spirit, the glory light of His presence (Romans 13:11-14; Zechariah 2:5).
Let light shine out of darkness; Christ shines in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. The fruit of light is all that is good, true, and righteous. In Christ and Christ in us, we are sons of light, sons of the day, fruiting light that darkness cannot overcome; the light of life that streams from the throne of Christ, becoming a fountain of life in us, flowing rivers of glorified Christ Spirit from us so knowledge of the glory can cover the earth like water covers the seas (Habakkuk 2:14; John 1:4-17; 2 Cor 4:6-7; Ephesians 5:6-14; 1 Thess 5:5).
When we receive Christ in us, we receive knowledge of the glory; beholding the glory changes us. We no longer conform to this world, but transform in the renewing light that continuously fills our mind from the River of Water of Life, the Light of Life in Christ Jesus. We give our old life to Jesus and take His new resurrected life, to come to life in Christ and Christ in us; no longer under the law of sin and death, but under the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus. By the mercies of God we empty our living body of the past, fallen spirits, soul and body, letting God fill us with new resurrection life in spiritual worship; receiving Christ’s Spirit, mind, heart, will to do the Will of the Father on earth as it is in heaven (Romans 12:1-2).
We reject the old wine when we taste the new wine, eternal light, life and Spirit pouring into our new wineskin bodies. Out of the great mercies of God, we give our living body as sacrifice, spiritual worship where we present our body to be filled with the presence of God, the glory of God, the Christ Presence, the light of the life of God to fill our heart, leaving no darkness at all. We no longer conform to this world but we are transformed by beholding the glory of Christ, taking his Mind that renews Christ in us; the Holy Spirit and fire River of light of life that continually refills our new wineskin body with the life of God, as born again, born from Above of God, new creatures, the two become one, a new creation of the new covenant, a kind of “first-fruit creatures” (James 1:16-18; Luke 5:36-39; Romans 12:1-2; 2 Corinthians 3:16-21; John 3:3-9).
“Then I turned to see the voice in the Spirit…eyes like flames of fire…feet as in a furnace…face like the full sun shining in full strength…mouth with the Sword of the Spirit…seven stars in his right hand” Revelation 1:12-18
“I saw on the Way a bright light from heaven, shining brighter than the sun… and we fell to the ground and hear His Voice…’I am Jesus’…rise and stand…open eyes to turn from darkness to light and from the power of satan to the Power of God to receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in Me” Acts 26:13-18
“God is light and in Him is no darkness at all” 1 John 1:5
Light of God, expose all hidden darkness and agendas with the light of Truth.
“Behold, I am doing a new thing, do you not perceive it? I am making streams in the desert, the Way in the wilderness”
Change your focus from what has fallen to what has risen. Come out from under the influence of fallen spirits to be led by the Holy Spirit of God and his Christ. Be delivered from the dominion of darkness and transferred into the kingdom of the beloved Son who rises in your heart as the morning star bringing the new dawn of Christ in you, and as the Heavenly Sun of Righteousness raising healing in your spirit, soul and body.
“Believe in The Light; become sons of Light” John 12:36
“Give thanks to the Father who qualifies us to share in the inheritance of Light” Colossians 1:12
“Do not be in darkness, brethren, for that day to surprise you like a thief. For in Christ you are sons of Light and sons of the Day; we are not of the night or darkness in Christ…Keep awake…God has not destined you for wrath, but to obtain salvation through Christ Jesus so whether you wake or sleep, you live with Him…Do not quench the Spirit…May the God of Peace Himself sanctify you wholly; and may your spirit and soul and body be kept sound and blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful, and He will do it” 1 Thessalonians 5:2-24
Let there be Light!
