In 2 Corinthians, chapter 4, verses 6 through 7, it says,
“For God, who said, ‘Let there be LIGHT in the darkness,’
has made this LIGHT shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God
that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ.
We now have this LIGHT shining in our hearts,
but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure."
God has shined in our hearts. This knowledge is a revelation.
What is this “treasure?”
>> The knowledge of the glory that is the very face of Jesus that lights all of Heaven. Light is not just
for seeing; light is for walking IN. It’s walking in the power of the Light of His glory.
And each step into the Light, takes you into greater Light. The path of the Just gets brighter and brighter.
In Hosea 4:6, it says,
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.”
At first, it appears that people are ignorant and need the Word of God, and that is true, but that’s not the
whole verse. The Lord is NOT hiding the Light from people. But if we continue reading this verse, it says:
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
Because you have REJECTED knowledge”
“Because you have REJECTED knowledge…” That’s why people are in the state of darkness. It’s NOT
because it wasn’t available to them… They REJECTED it.
Jesus said your traditions (church/religions) make the Word of God of no effect.
2 Corinthians 5:17
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation;
old things have passed away;
behold, all things have become new.”
What about the people who have never heard of the Gospel? And certainly they are being destroyed for a
lack of knowledge. But it still has to do with rejecting Light and knowledge:
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven
against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men,
who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,
because what may be known of God is manifest in them,
for God has SHOWN it to them.
For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen,
being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead,
so that they are without excuse,
because, although they KNEW God, they did NOT glorify Him as God,
nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts,
and their foolish hearts were darkened.”
It doesn’t matter. It can be a young boy, it can be a young girl anywhere in the world, but when that young
one looks up into the night sky and they see the Creation - they are seeing a revelation of the reality of
God. And even His external power and Godhead are revealed.
And there is a spark of Light about the reality of God. Nobody is born into this planet without getting it. And
there is a spark in them that let’s them know that God is real, that the Creator is real, and if they will
follow THAT Light and just look up and say, “God, I know you’re real. So, reveal yourself to me.”
That’s the first step.
