“For God did not send the son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through Him. He who believes in Him is not judged; He who does not believe in Him has been judged already because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten son of God. And this is the judgement, that the light is come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light, because their deeds were evil.” ~John 3:17-19
I take you here for reasons to contemplate and consider Me in new ways. I am the revealer of the heart’s intentions. Whether there is light or darkness in the heart of all things, I shed My light on the matters of each heart. And this some despise, for they do not wish for any light to expose the darkness there. They are opposed to light only due to the seeing it provides others! Their deeds remain unexposed so long as no light shows the ‘doing in darkness’ of souls sold out to evil deeds.
“Why?” you ask. Well, let Me tell you- These men are men of no remorse. Their cares are not for the eternal good or things that last for My glory- but they are set on things of life on earth – temporal- now – and bearing fruit that does not last – fruit that looks and tastes very good until the eye sees into the flesh of it and there is rottenness throughout – exposed once it has been bitten into. This flesh is the same as their own, it covers the rottenness found within the soul of the man – the very heart of evil that lies beneath the surface and appearance of things. These are a people that have never known Me because I might get in their way! I might cramp their style! I might cause others to see what they are hiding although they should know that I see it well.
And what else matters? What is hidden from Me? Am I a god far off and not a God who comes very near? As close as one lets Me in – is it man that allows Me? No! I am everywhere I desire to be and everywhere I am becomes light eventually. I raise the dead and I lay dead [matters] to rest. I am the sustainer of all good, and the deceiver never gets around My truth in the end of it all. Eventually, everyone must deal with Me somehow.
In their own mind, this thought may be far off, but in Mine, it is ever-present! For I desire that all men come to the light and I cause the light to beckon them, but many resist and in this way, avoid living in My light for a time.
But when I flood their world with the Light – they can no longer avoid Me- and I am the decider of when the full flood lights are turned ON!
“LEAVE THE LIGHTS ON!” I say! “THERE IS NO ENERGY DRAIN HERE!” This is the beginning of energy-giving life – the light source that makes it all easier to see and helps you to avoid stumbling around – hesitantly- fearful of tripping over something and falling down. THIS IS GOOD LIGHT and clears out all darkness instantly. “TURN on the flood lights in my heart!” You say! “Blast Your light particles like a laser through my soul!” You cry!
Yes! “Expose me to myself!” is your best response, because truly, you do not know your very own heart within you as I know it and only I can show it to you fully!
So, let My light shine in on your dark places and see the contrasts there – shadow causing light to appear on the windows of your mind – these glances out into the world from within you are your windows to the world! While you peer out of your dirty, shadowed windows, you are bound up inside, and unable to go out there and do any good! What holds you back? The lack of clarity with which you are able to see in order to participate in the games going on! You are that child – trapped inside behind the dirty window – unsure of how to come out and interact in a world you cannot fully see! But there inside, you feel safer – although your knowing of truth is quite limited and your doors remain closed off to others, your ability to become involved will never be extended to the outside world if you remain locked up in there!
“Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” ~ Matthew 5:16
These things I say to you in order to bring you outside – out in My full streams of light – to turn your face upward and soak Me in – freely – spreading your arms and experiencing the fullness of US together! You in My LIGHT = US together in My LIGHT! and that is where you flourish as I have intended it to be! You connect with My light source and the SHINING becomes WHO YOU ARE – the LIGHT source gets inside of your pores and pours out to the world around you!
Exposing you to light is a good thing and warms My desires within you. You shed the darkness of your dirty, shadowed windows and come clean before Me to experience the goodness of who I am and who we are together! Union=Marriage – not by man’s laws, but by My own- so any union that becomes ONE is a marriage and the union of two together becoming ONE UNIT, but BASED in fear, no union can be strong – and many are the relationships that strive to exist this way. Calling it legal doesn’t change anything! There is still a basis of anxiety – fear and doubt – on which no union can flourish! What is the fear? The doubt? Well, it is all about the self! And this is the thing that concerns Me – not the result of fears or the outcomes of these which you see, but these symptoms speak of a greater illness- a disease of knowledge that outweighs the good of grace and all it brings! GRACE is My gift to all to receive, but knowledge puffs up and arrogance does not allow grace to be received-so this PRIDE is a banner of deceit to the bearer of it – (You cringe because you know My love, but I tell you for the same reason, because you know My love and would never harm anyone with your knowledge- I made you this way- to understand My mysteries- so that you can more easily give the big love you have for others-) That is why you say, I can see WHY people are the way they are and this (curse) causes me to love them in spite of it – often setting yourself up for a fall or the pain of loving those who fail to appreciate it. But I say (as your mother did) it is indeed a blessing to love this way – for this vulnerable loving is what it takes to know Me well – this same degree of vulnerable love went to the cross and all the way to death for you because He looked at you and understood WHY you are the way you are and did it anyway – so you could see it too- This LIGHT shines on you FULLY – so that you also can see others with empathy and understanding of their plight of darkness. This is the kind of love and light that changes things – the resurrection of all dark and dead fleshly deeds come into light and life once completely dead and buried. So you understand what it is to truly love one another – this is your charge in life – LOVING FULLY IN THE LIGHT BEYOND ALL DARKNESS. (This is the Word of the Lord).
“But in a great house, they are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some for honor and some for dishonor. Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself of the latter, he will be a vessel of honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.” ~ 2 Timothy 2:20-24
“The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise as some understand slowness,He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” ~ 2 Peter 3:9
