Matthew 5:14 (AMPC);
“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.”
As Born Again Believers in Jesus Christ, we are literally “Cities of Light!” Beacons of Hope to a lost and dying world! When the world sees us, they should see “The Light” of Jesus Christ beaming from our lives!
John 8:12 (AMPC);
“Once more, Jesus addressed the crowd. He said I Am The Light of the world. He who follows Me will not be walking in the dark, but will have The Light which is Life.”
Living in “The Light of God” keeps us from “walking in darkness,” Playing spiritual, “Hide and Seek.”
HIDE AND SEEK
Matthew 5:15-16 (TPT);
“And who would light a lamp and then hide it in an obscure place? Instead, It’s placed where everyone in the house can benefit from its light.” “So don’t hide your light! Let it shine brightly before others so that the commendable things you do will shine as light upon them, and then they will give their praise to your Father in Heaven.”
It’s not the time to play “Hide and Seek” with our light! Nor is it a time to “dim our light” in fear, living “low beam” lives of compromise. As Christ-followers, we are to be “Bold Cities of Light” Shining Brightly For The Kingdom of God, wherever we go! Rejecting the pull of the world to revel in sins darkness where we used to roam. God has called us “Cities of Light” to “A Mission of Light!” To live so brightly in the world that “the commendable things we do” for The Kingdom of God is easily recognized. “Then they will give their praise to our Father in Heaven!”
Ephesians 5:11 (TPT);
“And don’t even associate with the servants of darkness because they have no fruit in them; instead, reveal Truth to them.
A MISSION OF LIGHT
Ephesians 5:8-9 (TPT);
“Once your life was full of sin’s darkness, but now you have the very Light of our Lord shining through you because of your union with Him. Your mission is to live as children flooded with His Revelation-Light!” “And the supernatural fruits of His Light will be seen in you-Goodness, Righteousness, and Truth.”
The wattage of God’s Revelation-Light that Heaven has deposited into one Born Again Believer’s Heart as a “City of Light” is beyond Atomic, my friend! It is CATACLYSMIC to the realm of darkness! Why?…… Because” God is Light, and in Him, there is no darkness at all!” Ref. 1st John 5 (b).
When The All-Consuming Light of God shows up on the scene through our lives, Powered by His “Goodness, Righteousness and Truth,” darkness is exposed, and people are saved from the “sleep of death!” The result?……our “Mission of Light” is accomplished in Jesus’ Name! To God Be The Glory! My friend, we must not forget that He has entrusted us with “The Language of Light” that we can successfully carry out the “Mission of Light.”
THE LANGUAGE OF LIGHT
Ephesians 5:13-14 (TPT):
“Whatever The Revelation Light exposes, it will also correct, and everything that reveals truth is light to the soul.” “This is why the Scripture says, “Arise, you sleeper! Rise from your coffin, and The Anointed One will Shine His Light into you!”
As “Cities of Light,” it is our vital privilege to become fluent in “The Language of Light.” Why?…… Because of this Divine Principle of Truth:
“The Language of Light Speaks Loud and Clear In The Darkest of Nights.”
As “Cities of Light,” we are meant to speak, “The Language of Light” Loud and Clear to The Darkest Night of an unbeliever’s soul!
Indeed, at a time and hour when Earth least expected it, “The Language of Light Spoke Loud and Clear!” When Jesus Christ Breathed His Final Earthly Breathe and said, “IT IS FINISHED,” REF. JOHN 19:30 (B); CALVARY BECAME THE SIMULTANEOUS CATACLYSMIC EXPLOSION IN HEAVEN, ON EARTH, AND IN THE SPIRIT REALM THAT OBLITERATED THE POWER OF DARKNESS ONCE AND FOR ALL!
At that Divine, Heaven Appointed Moment, every man, woman, and child that would ever say yes to Jesus Christ as LORD and SAVIOR have the opportunity to become an unconquerable, “City of Light!” With the power to pierce darkness by speaking, “The Language of Light!” Which is “The Language of Revelation Truth and Freedom” that brings the dead back to life, spirit, soul, and body! My friend, we can now speak “The Language of Light” into the darkness of men’s souls, as we rule with “The Government of Light!”
THE GOVERNMENT OF LIGHT
Isaiah 9:6-7 (MEV);
“For unto us a Child is born, unto us, a Son is given, and The Government shall be upon His Shoulder. And His Name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.” “Of the increase of His Government and Peace, there shall be no end, upon the throne of David and over His Kingdom, to order it and to establish it with Justice and Righteousness, from now until forever. The zeal of The Lord of Hosts will perform this.”
In The Kingdom of Heaven, there is a “Government of Light,” and the ruling class is YOU and me!
Matthew 28:18-20 MEV);
“Then Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in Heaven and on Earth.” “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in The Name of The Father and The Son and of The Holy Spirit,” “teaching them to observe all things I have commanded you.” And remember, I Am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.”
“The Great Commission,” described for us in Matthew 28, is still our Commission today, my friend. God has vested us as “Cities of Light” with “His Authority!” Why?…. To work, THROUGH US, to be “The increase of His Government and Peace.” This impartation is how The Kingdom of Heaven perpetuates, of which there “Shall be no end!” Glory to God! As Born Again Believers, WE ARE “The zeal of The Lord of Hosts” who performs HIS WILL on Earth as “It is in Heaven!” How?…. Through our obedience to “Go and make disciples of all nations.”
As “Cities of Light,” there is a powerful principle of Truth that equips you and me to rule and reign within “The Government of Light,” and we find it in 1st Timothy 6:12 (MEV);
“Fight the good fight of faith. Lay hold on eternal life, to which you are called and have professed a good profession before many witnesses.”
“Cities of Light,” “Fight The Good Fight of Faith!”
The Apostle Paul knew that by learning how to “Fight The Good Fight of Faith,” you and I keep the “Light” of God’s Presence Shining Bright in our lives! My friend, we are the only ones who can dim that “Light.” God through His Son Jesus Christ paid a GREAT PRICE for you and me To Be His Called, “Cities of Light,” The most incredible “Light Show,” (displays of His Power and Governmental Authority) that this world would EVER witness and encounter! “Not by might, nor by power, but By His Spirit.” (Ref. Zechariah 4:6.b)
REFUGE FOR LIFE
Has your light dimmed, my friend?
Have you grown weary “Fighting the Good Fight of Faith?”
If so, let me encourage you with THIS LIGHT FILLED TRUTH:
1st John 4:4 (MEV);
You are of God, little children, and have overcome them because He Who is in you is Greater than he who is in the world.”
“AS A CITY OF LIGHT, YOU ARE A REFUGE FOR LIFE!”…..And, “He Who is in you is Greater than he who is in the world!”
In John 10:10, part (b), Jesus states, “I came to give life and life more abundantly.” Part of that abundant overcoming life works through us as “Cities of Light!” “Refuges of Life” filled with the same CATACLYSMIC POWER that Jesus Christ walked the Earth with!
My friend, where will those in darkness find “The Light of Life,” “A Refuge for their souls? God is encouraging us not to fear, quit, or be intimidated! As the “Eternal Flame” of God’s Presence and Power shines brightly within us, “The Language of Light” will speak loud and clear through us!
Now is the time to:
Be Strong and Live Free as “Cities of Light”…….Boldly For Him!
