“But if we walk in the light as He is in the light,
we have fellowship with one another,
and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.”
God is faithful to give every human being “Light”. The problems involved are not with God. The problems
are in the darkness of this world. Satan blinds the mind of them, but that doesn’t stop God.
When we think of Light, we think of hearing the Word and getting Light, and that is one of the greatest
ways that Light comes. BUT it’s not the only way.
In Romans 1, we saw Creation itself speaking and revealing Light. The cycles of nature, the heavens,
the atmosphere, the flow of the oceans and river systems, even in its fallen, cursed state, it is revealing
rounds of Light about the very person of God… Who He is, What His tasks are, the beauty that has
come out of Him.
There’s Light, and when you see somebody spared, that was Light. When you see or hear or know of
somebody that got Healed, that is Light.
Jesus is the Light of the world. Looking at Him, is going to lead you to Him.
The Light is all around us. And so, there is no excuse for anybody on the planet to say,
>> “Well, I had no idea that there was God.”
And another say,
>> “Well, they never heard about Jesus.”
Yeah, but if they had walked in the Light on God they had, He would have led them TO Jesus.
Everybody that looks up and says,
>> “God, I believe in you. I wish you would reveal yourself to me.”
They are just a few steps away from meeting Jesus. It is NOT a problem of lack of Light; it’s a problem
of rejecting Light.
16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world,
but that the world through Him might be saved.
18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned;
but he who does not believe is condemned already,
because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world,
and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
In verse 19, this is the condemnation. This is how the judgment comes in. “Men loved darkness rather
than Light.” It’s not that they didn’t see the Light. They saw it, and they didn’t want it.
You know, Jesus told the religious leaders of His day, He said that the prostitute and these and those that
you so despise, they are going to get into the Kingdom before you. And that made them mad. And Jesus
explained and He said, they, when they saw it, they came in and repented. He said, but you, when you
saw it... So, they SAW it.
MANY of the leaders of the Jews of His day, they saw that He was the fulfillment of prophecy, but they
21 But he who does the truth comes to the light,
that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”
If you’ll act on the Word of God, it will be made manifest, that what he does has God in it.
He that walks in the Light, comes to the Light – has more Light. But the person that sees it and has
darkness… so they cling to the darkness and say,
>> “I don’t want the Light.”
They literally closed their eyes, they shut their eyes, so that they don’t see it anymore. It’s not just
ignorance. It is rejection of Light.
Matthew 13:12 (Amplified Bible)
“For whoever has [spiritual knowledge], to him will more be given
and he will be furnished richly so that he will have abundance;
but from him who has not,
even what he has will be taken away.”
This passage is quoted from:
> also in Matthew,
> also in Mark,
> also in Luke,
> also in John,
> also in Acts,
> also in Romans
This SAME passage. This has to be of preeminent importance, to be repeated that many times
throughout the scripture… 7 times.
Matthew 13:15 (Amplified Bible)
“For this nation's heart has grown gross (fat and dull),
and their ears heavy and difficult of hearing,
and their eyes they have tightly closed,
lest they see and perceive with their eyes,
and hear and comprehend the sense with their ears,
and grasp and understand with their heart,
and turn and I should heal them.”
Their eyes… the devil DIDN’T do this. God sure didn’t do it. THEY have tightly closed their eyes,
“lest they would see.” That’s why they didn’t want to see it – they didn’t want to change. They wanted to
hold on to the darkness they were in.
But if they HAD, He said, “I should HEAL them. I would heal them.”
This scripture (Matthew 13:15) says anytime I see this, hear this and let it change the way I think and the
way I speak and the way I act, then you’re Healed.
So, this is anytime.
