EXPERIENCING CHRIST AS LIGHT

The Holy Spirit has been impressing upon me how very important it is to think of each new day as another opportunity to discover God’s love and light which makes life an adventure…and to check my conscience, make my confessions, and be cleansed in order to be refreshed. I praise my wonderful Jesus who is ever Faithful to His own. I love Him so much the more for His close attention even down to the smallest details in my day. ~~ I bless you Yeshua Messiah! ~~

Experiencing Christ as Light
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Bible Verses (RcV) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

John 8:12 Again therefore Jesus spoke to them, saying, I am
the light of the world; he who follows Me shall by no means
walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Words of Ministry ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Christ is the unique light. Apart from Him, there is no light.
The reason so many Christians are in darkness is that they do
not have Christ in an experiential way. Those in the seminaries
may study theology and Christology, but they may not have the
genuine experience of God and of Christ. Therefore, they are
without light.

Many believers insist that the Bible is full of light. This,
of course, is true. But if we do not read the Word in the Lord’s
presence, even our reading of the Scriptures will be in darkness.
We shall be like the Pharisees addressed by the Lord Jesus in
John 5:39 and 40: “You search the Scriptures, because you think
that in them you have eternal life, and it is these that testify
concerning Me; and you are not willing to come to Me that you
may have life.” The religionists were offended when Christ told
them they were blind (John 9:39- 41). They thought they were in
light because they had the Scriptures in an outward way. But
actually they were blind because they did not have Christ, who
alone is the light of the world. Any place where the Lord Jesus
is not present is under the authority of darkness.

We need to apply this principle to ourselves. Any part of our
being or of our daily life that is without Christ is in darkness.
If we…do not have Christ experientially and in a practical way
in our daily walk, we are in darkness.

About Donna

Praise the Lord! By His Grace I am His child and His servant. I can do nothing of and by myself for the Living God is the Great Producer, Director and Potter and it is by His grace that anything has been accomplished within me. I have four children and five grandsons whom I love dearly. I am seeking to be a prepared Bride and to be a seeker, lover, worshipper, of the Living God. I seek to inspire others to come to the Lord and seek Him for truth and to hear from Him for themselves so as to follow hard after Him and all He has for them, also to warn others to come out of the babylonish church system. These writings are meant to draw you to the Lover of your souls so ,you too, can be prepared to please and satisfy Jesus Christ who paid the ultimate price for our redemption. Thereby, you will then enjoy Him here, glorify Him and belong to His Heart and meet with Him someday in the Heavenly Kingdom. The way is narrow that leads to LIFE, but the way is broad that leads to DESTRUCTION. I implore you to seek the Lord, to examine yourselves, to plead for His mercy to make you ready to be a prepared bride for Him, to be His inheritance, His reward for His sufferings.
