… AN APPRAISAL ON THE PRESENT LIGHT AND THE TRUE LIGHT
Once upon a time, Jesus hadn’t learnt the language of his day, didn’t know he was carrying the seed of God, didn’t have a grasp of the divine world called truth, and as such, couldn’t speak or witness to the realm and reality in God called truth. But while parents indulge in unduly exposing their children today, Jesus was exposed to the daily breaking news (the gospel of God) concerning man’s future civilization which the academic profession(s) of his day and of all generations couldn’t offer. His secret was simple! His background, upbringing and his experiences where all primarily influenced by God’s light!
Through the aid of God’s World-To-Come Wide Web (the Holy Spirit), he kept receiving streams of inspired thoughts (righteous judgments) by the hour and he kept responding in humility on all occasions (Phil. 2:8). In a matter of decades, Jesus had learnt the Laws and Economics of God’s nature. He knew the very structure of God’s light and would forever be the luminary of an ageless world to come, glory!
So God has only been the original education meant for man’s soul, and his light was meant to be the center of all learning. The present order of learning is traceable to the fall of man (disobedience), but a new order has been instituted by the obedience of Jesus. It is available today and would be fully restored in the world to come where God’s good and perfect light (Jam. 1:17) would cater for the deficiencies in the souls of those who didn’t start or finish their faith and/or love course (Rev. 22:2/5).
A question therefore arises, “where did the notion that says there are no exciting learning experiences in God come from”? Who told us that there are no types and shadows of “honors”, “double honors”, “master’s degree” and/or “professional highest degrees” to be received while learning God and unlearning darkness (Act 26:18b/1Jn. 1:5-6)? Who says we can’t become elites of the true light like the Lord’s servants/apostles were?
Why do we have a roll call of honor of those who kept faith with the light of their day in Hebrew chapter 11? What position would our names be in the final roll call of honor of those who subscribed to a higher faith course (i.e. the faith of the son)? Why did Rev. 21:24/26 testify that the kings of the new earth would keep bringing (submitting) their glory and honor to the light of the holy city (i.e. to the co-kings and co-priests of God and the lamb)?
Who told us that those who acquire the true education of God (an inexhaustible light) won’t be certified (justified in the Spirit) like Jesus was severally (Matt. 3:17;17:5/1Tim. 3:16/2Pet. 1:17)?. These are just a few of the many anointed questions we need to ask, so we can come across anointed answers from the Holy Spirit in the days of our flesh.
- Rev. 21:23 And the city (the critical mass of saints that have been reconciled with God’s light during their earthly sojourn) had no need of the sun, neither of the moon (i.e. degrees of light that is contrary to that of the glory of God, the light of the first creation that has since been hijacked by sin and death), to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. And the nations of them which are saved (i.e. categories of citizens of the new earth) shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honor into it.
- Heb. 11:39 And these all, having obtained a good report (i.e. exploits with lesser lights that couldn’t pierce through the veil into God’s personal light) through faith, received not the promise (i.e. the exceeding great and precious promise that would later give birth to God’s city, rest and new civilization): God having provided some better thing (i.e. a better substance of light) for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.
Heyel (so called Lucifer/the devil) was created perfect and clothed with 10 stones (Eze. 28:12-13), but why was his beauty and radiance tied to the light he radiated? Because in the realm of the spirit (invincibility), light is the source of all definitions. As it was with angels, so it was with the first and last Adam. Their identity (name) was culled from the definition and interpretation of the light they bore and radiated. Men have invested in earthly education, properties, stocks and shares, but are yet to invest in the acquisition of the true light.
- Rev. 21:10-11 … The great city (of light bearers), Having the glory of God: and her light (i.e. their new inheritance) was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;
Citizens of the new heaven would have one thing in common with the lamb and with God – the true light, and would therefore play a strategic role of influence in the age(s) to come. We must not be left out! We must have a proper perspective of the present light and the true light.
