20 Then another came, saying, 'Lord behold, here is your mina, which I have kept laid away in a handkerchief.
|Matthew 5:15 |
15 Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it gives light to all who are in the house. [When a believer enters the kingdom and becomes a child of light, walking in the light, his light will shine brightly in the darkness of the world. There is no such thing as a secret, true Christian, who has entered the Kingdom of Heaven, in union with God, to become a light. God does not hide his lights of the earth. In 17th Century England, when tens of thousands early Quakers entered the kingdom, the Lord said to George Fox: "If only one man or woman were raised by his power, to stand and live in the same spirit that the prophets and apostles were in who gave forth the scriptures, that man or woman should shake all the country in their profession for ten miles round," (and with automobiles, that distance is much greater today.)]
