26 Moreover, the light of the moon will be like the light of the sun, and the light of the sun will be sevenfold, like the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD binds up the breach of his people and heals the stroke of their wound.
5 O house of Jacob, come and let us walk in the light of the LORD. [From the Word of the Lord within: "Walking in the light is to be guided through life by God; walking in darkness is making your own decisions as to what to do and say. Light comes from faith in the voice. I am the light of the world; he who follows me shall not walk in darkness but shall have the light of life." Faith in the voice is evidenced by your obedience to what you hear; to follow is to obey what you hear the Lord speak to you as you wait on Him.]
19 The sun shall no more be your light by day; nor shall the moon give light to you for brightness; but the LORD will be an everlasting light to you, and your God will be your glory.
|2 Peter 1:19|
19 Also [like we heard God's voice from heaven on the mount] we have the steady prophetic word [the word in your heart]; to which you do well to pay attention, as to a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star [Jesus] rises in your hearts;4 [As the lightning comes out of the east, and shines to the west; so also will the coming of the Son of man be. Mat 24:27. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright morning star. Rev 22:16. He who overcomes, ..I will give him the morning star. Rev 2:26-28. From the Word of the Lord within: "Light comes from faith in the voice. My word is in your heart and mouth. Listen well to my words; attend to them. And to those who obey, he will appear like a magnificent star in your heart. The arising of the light will be unmistakable; it is an ego-shattering experience."]
24 For like the lightning, that flashes out of the one part of the sky and shines to the other, so will the Son of Man be in his day. [For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, has shined in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 2 Cor 4:6. And so we have the more sure prophetic word (the word in your heart); to which you do well to pay attention, as to a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star [Jesus] rises in your hearts, 2 Pet 1:19. I, Jesus, have sent my angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright morning star. Rev 22:16]
12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, "I am the light of the world [every man]. He who follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the Light of Life."2 [The Light (Christ) is given to every man who comes into the world, John 1:9, so that through the Light, all men might believe, John 1:7; and by abiding in the Light and obeying the Light, receive salvation to become a child of the light, a son of God. To follow Jesus is to obey what He shows and speaks to you by revelation. If you do not keep or obey the words you hear Christ speak to you, those words will be your judge when you die. John 12:47-48. From the Word of the Lord within: "Obedience leads to restoration of life."]
14 You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. [After you are freed from all sin and translated into the kingdom of God, then the morning star (Jesus) rises in your heart, then you have been called out of darkness into His marvelous light, then you share in the inheritance of the saints in the light, then you are walking in the light as Jesus is in the light, then God will have made you to become a child of the light, and then you are the light of the world; through your walking and speaking in obedience to God's continual directions, you will show the world the wisdom, love, and power of God. From the Word of the Lord within: "We demonstrate the love of God to the earth." This verse could have been translated from the original Greek just as correctly to be: "You are to be the light of the world." Jesus said, "As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world," John 9:5.]
|Colossians 1:12 |
12 Giving thanks to the Father, who has made us fit to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. [To partake is to share in the inheritance of a son, who is in union with Christ and the Father. To be a saint in the light is to have experienced the light to arise in your heart like a magnificent star; and then be guided by God, who is light, in everything to do and say; thus to be walking according to His will, not your own will any longer. From the Word of the Lord within: "Walking in the light is to be guided through life by God; walking in darkness is making your own decisions as to what to do and say. First the light arises, then the kingdom. Light comes from faith in the voice. The arising of the light will be unmistakable; it is an ego-shattering experience."]
