Divine Light Comes When The Spirit Moves

"God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all", see 1 John 1:5.

Jesus is our Saviour today, see Titus 2:13, but He is our Judge tomorrow, see 2 Corinthians 5:10; see also Revelation 20:11 - 15.

Enter therefore in at the strait gate, because "strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it", see Matthew 7:14. Jesus is the way, see John 14:6, and "the door of the sheep", see John 10:7.

In Jesus is life, and the life is the light of men, see John 1:4. Therefore we should walk "as children of light", see Ephesians 5:8. The Lord Jesus, is "the true Light" see John 1:9, who gives us light, see Revelation 22:5, and He "hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel", see 2 Timothy 1:10.

Wisdom is light, and Jesus is "the light of the world", see John 8:12. Therefore Jesus is God's wisdom, see 1 Corinthians 1:24, 30. In Christ are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge, see Colossians 2:3.

For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ, see 1 Corinthians 3:11.

The light and glory of New Jerusalem, see Revelation 21:2, 11, is our Lord Jesus, see Revelation 21:23, "even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were", see Romans 4:17.

"Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty", see 2 Corinthians 3:17. "Let us put on the armour of light", see Romans 13:12, and take "the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God", see Ephesians 6:17. For where the Spirit of God is, there is life, see Revelation 11:11.

For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made us free from the law of sin and death, see Romans 8:2. And "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law", see Galatians 5:22 - 23.

"Et qui non est inventus in libro vitae scriptus, missus est in stagnum ignis", Revelation 20:15.

We Are Redeemed With The Precious Blood Of Christ

"Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot", see 1 Peter 1:18 - 19.

Our God is the God of all comfort, see 2 Corinthians 1:3, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning, see James 1:17.

The disciples asked Jesus: "Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?", see Acts 1:6.

As we know, the land of the twelve tribes of Israel is every inch of land from between the river Nile and the river Euphrates to the Mediterranean sea, see Genesis 15:18. The Kingdom of Israel belongs to the twelve tribes of Israel, see Revelation 7:5 - 8, where God will "gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other", see Matthew 24:31.

No more will the just be condemned and killed by the rich, see James 5:6, and no more will God's people be plundered by taxes by persons like the Lord's disciple Judas Iscariot, who betrayed Jesus, see Matthew 10:4. Instead the commandment is that the income taxes in Israel will be one tenth of the income. This will be administered by the Levites, see Hebrews 7:5, without neglecting that both the priesthood and the law have been changed, see Hebrews 7:12, since Jesus has made all believers Kings and Priests, see Revelation 1:6.

"Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood", see Acts 20:28.

"Et dixit isti duo filii olei qui adsistunt Dominatori universae terrae", Zechariah 4:14.

Are The Churches Ruled By Spineless Ministers?

Jesus is the creator God, see John 1:3 and John 1:10, the Almighty, see Revelation 1:8, and the Amen, see Revelation 1:18.

Our creator God has disciplin. Jesus has both a strong character and a strong mind. He is the wise judge, and at the same time our champion and soldier, see Revelation 19:11.

"Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men", see 2 Corinthians 5:11.

Therefore it is the way of Jesus, or not at all, see John 14:6.

But what God do our Churches know and serve today? The lukewarm ministers God will spue out according to his words, see Revelation 3:15- 16.

Our elected politicians have often no deeper spiritual knowledge of the Bible or of religious matters. They often know their own political manifesto better than the word of God. This is very sad indeed, because "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness", see 2 Timothy 3:16.

Nevertheless, most politicians are sound persons, who are very well aware of their lack of deeper knowledge in spiritual matters. Usually they are willing to listen to the voice of the Churches. Therefore it is very serious when Christian religious leaders in Europe or elsewhere put pressure on foreign ministers and national leaders to condemn and discriminate Israel.

If I am correctly informed the President of Iran has promised to wipe out Israel from the map within 3 years. During these circumstances I really hope the Swedish Archbishop was misquoted in Swedish medias for his thoughts on Israel. We Christians should stand up for Israel, and we Europeans have much to learn from America concerning this.

Since the modern Churches often are ruled by spineless ministers or worse, it is no wonder if the Church age almost is finished.

Two thousands years ago - during the first centuries after the resurrection of Jesus Christ - approximately 3 million Jews and 300 000 Greeks gave their lives as Christian martyrs. Thanks to them we live today in developed Christian and democratic nations.

We should therefore remember our roots and follow Jesus and not some man. Do not fall for those ministers who only want to Lord it over you, see 1 Peter 5:3, but think for yourself, and "work out your own salvation", see Philippians 2:12.

"Nam eiusmodi pseudoapostoli, operarii subdoli, transfigurantes se in apostolos Christi. Et non mirum, ipse enim Satanas transfigurat se in angelum lucis; non est ergo magnum, si et ministri eius transfigurentur velut ministri iustitiae, quorum finis erit secundum opera ipsorum", 2 Corinthians 11:13 - 15.

We Christians Are The Salt Of The Earth - Matthew 5:13

"But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person", see 1 Corinthians 5:13.

We Christians are to purge out the old leaven, in order to be a new lump, see 1 Corinthians 5:7. As a "holy nation", see 1 Peter 2:9, we Christians are intended to be "the salt of the earth", see Matthew 5:13.

Those who are without Jesus have no hope, and are without God in the world, see Ephesians 2:12. They are ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth, see 2 Timothy 3:7, for without Jesus we can do nothing, see John 15:5.

Those who refuse to have God in their knowledge, see Romans 1:28, have "changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever", see Romans 1:25.

Those who accept God - Jesus - His word, and His salvation, become born again, see John 3:5, through this mystical experience of God. True wisdom is in Christ, see 1 Corinthians 1:30. Jesus alone is the way, the truth, and the life, and no one comes to the Father but by Him, see John 14:6 and 18:38. It is His truth that makes us free, see John 8:32 and John 8:36, and which protects us from the "philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ", see Colossians 2:8.

Thanks to Jesus, man gains his proper place in the Universe, and as "joint-heirs with Christ", see Romans 8:17, we are "the sons of God", see John 1:12, and "partakers of the divine nature", see 2 Peter 1:4. Thanks to the New Testament, we are given the true wisdom, which leads us to God.

Through the New Testament, Jesus also gives us the keys to shape and to reshape our civilization, and to develop art, science, politics, ideas, society, and culture. Through the New Testament we witness 72 miracles and wonders - 46 miracles of Jesus, and 26 miracles of the disciples of Jesus. And yet this is nothing compared with that which is to come.

The meaning of us Christians to be "the salt of the earth", see Matthew 5:13, is thus to be understood that we should stand for progress and development in the society, and therefore be useful by our great kindness, reliability and ingenuity.

"Collabora sicut bonus miles Christi Iesu", 2 Timothy 2:3.
