“IN THE LIGHT”

By Mike Loveless

IN THIS PHYSICAL WORLD: In this present physical world man controls most of the light switches: With a flick of his finger light floods in illuminating his surroundings, and THEREFORE THEN he sees! The light doesn’t change what was already there, but it does reveal what he could not possible see beforehand!

 

IN THE SPIRITUAL WORLD:  But spiritually speaking we must see what we cannot naturally see due to our condition of spiritual death. We find ourselves in this world born physically, but spiritually sill-born due to Adam’s deliberate fall in the garden! When Adam ate the forbidden fruit, he died that very day spiritually, even thought he lived on physically for some nine hundred and fifty years! He plunged the whole of humanity into spiritual death and utter darkness! As the result he became spiritually ignorant of God, and the thins of God.

 In order for him to see spiritually after that event, he must be supernaturally born again! Born of the Spirit!

Only by way of that new birth can he have spiritual discernment once again! In the Lord Jesus Christ alone is LIFE!

     (John 1:4) “In him was life: and the life was the light of men.”

 

GOD OWNS ALL SWITCHES: In reality our Lord Jesus Christ controls all of the switches! He is Lord of both the living and the dead. The light and the darkness! All creation bows to Him. But to see Him who is LIFE we must have new spiritual life performed in us, by Him! Otherwise the truth of God is foolishness to us!

 (1 Corinthians 2:14)

God must throw on the switch of life, or we remain ignorant, death in sins and spiritual darkness! The TRUTH was always there (the Lord Jesus Christ wo is the Truth), but without life there is no discernment of HIM.

Him being the LIFE . . . . . .  who is the LIGHT OF MEN!
