When you think of the word￼ Apocalypse what do u think of? Destruction? Calamity? End of the world stuff ?
Did you know the word Apocalypse is the greek word for Revelation, Manifestation , disclosure? That which is hidden is brought into the light.
The Revelation of Jesus Christ is the manifestation of Jesus Christ.
Apocalypse is not a bad thing its an awesome thing !
Apocalypse has been twisted into a negative, when in reality it’s really a positive!
Apocalypse is all about Christ being revealed and manifest in and through His body . The church
Remember its.. Christ in you the hope of glory..
Darkness is simply the absence of light.
As light manifests then darkness ceases to exist .
Jesus is the light of the world and then He put His light in us !
Now .. We are the light of the world .
As we shine darkness ceases to exist ..
The answer for the darkness in the world is light 💡 its not religion or boycotting or picketing
its you shining!
Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you.
For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the LORD will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you.
The Gentiles shall come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising. Isaiah 60:1-3
The church is the solution for the darkness..
The Church is the light of the world.
God‘s desire is that we shine.
How do we shine do we go out and beat people over the head with the king James Bible? No !
We begin to shine through what Jesus called a
single eye !
Much of the church has not had a single, but an evil religious eye￼.
Let me explain.
The word single has a Greek meaning of union or seeing your union in Christ. No separation, but perfect union.
But an evil eye sees the opposite, it Sees separation￼￼￼ and because it sees separation it works real hard to bridge the gap.
The word evil actually means toil, labor, striving and annoyances. Its the opposite of Rest ..
The most annoying thing that I have ever been involved in his religion!
There is no rest in religion there is only a sense of separation uncertainty and fear.
The Bible says if our eye is evil then even the light we do have will be in darkness.
The way we begin to shine is to see what God sees and that is our new union in Christ.
Much of our shining has more to do with perspective right seeing and with right believing￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼ then any religious exercise ..
God is moving the church into a great awakening.
The church is beginning to wake up ! Its casting off the works of religious darkness and putting on the armor of light ..
And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.
The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.
Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy.
But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.
Well Paul is saying here is that we need to put on who God has already created us to be in Christ and live out of who we are instead of living out of who were not.
The old man in Adam was crucified with Christ another words he’s dead and gone! It’s time to give the old man a decent burial and move on!
Don’t even go back and visit his grave ! ￼￼￼￼embrace the new you in Christ and you will shine.
