Word for you
About great light:
Fear / knowledge People are often scared about things they don’t have enough information. Asking for example from people that the concern (doubt, belief) is about would help getting to the right tracks. Person asking won’t wander from the path. Victory is won through many advisers (not necessarily with all the abundant advice). Blessing to your day! And also, don’t limit God with your beliefs. I only want the best for you. Isaiah 9:2 “The people who walked in darkness Have seen a great light; Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, Upon them a light has shined.” Matthew 4:16 “The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light, And upon those who sat in the region and shadow of death Light has dawned.” In some translations it has been said that when the light came darkness couldn’t comprehend it. In some ways it is right because light means knowledge and understanding. Darkness on the other hand means the opposite: ignorance and foolishness. The enemy has been able to blind spiritual eyesight. Maybe that eyesight has yet to come. Fortunately Jesus came as the light to this world to open our spirit to give us understanding. If you don’t give the permission then the darkness has no right to take possession of you.
Sometimes we think that you can’t say that (so said the disciples of Jesus about Jesus’s speech that it was tough). We usually think the way of human mind but then we never get to the full truth. So we are still in that part under the control of darkness. So we have those blind spots.
Jesus healed a certain blind slowly, little by little, so it is with us that our spiritual eyesight is opening little by little. It will heal, open, by spending time with the Lord that is in the heaven. And of course also when we are with our brothers and sisters.
Spirit of Absalom
How to recognise the spirit of Absalom? It is a spirit of betrayal. It works through people that has been offended. It tries to find people that are ready to rebel against the leaders of church. It thinks that authority doesn’t know how to act. Personal ambition opens a door for the spirit of Absalom. It will flatter other people and so get favor which will lead to pride. Getting offended creates bitterness and hate. It will cause betrayal in church and spiritual violence (sin). Usually, however, it will cause disease to themselves.
There is a danger if person doesn’t repent, it will eventually destroy this person.
Keep your mind free from this spirit. Watch over areas that it works in: Personal ambition, untreated offences etc.
To walk with the Lord
Leviticus, 24:1 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2. “Command the people of Israel to bring you pure oil from beaten olives for the lamp, that a light may be kept burning regularly. 3. Outside the veil of the testimony, in the tent of meeting, Aaron shall arrange it from evening to morning before the Lord regularly. It shall be a statute forever throughout your generations.
At that time when this (Leviticus) is written, they needed oil into the oil lamp, and they produced it of the olives growing in olive trees. They had to crush the olives and that fine oil which came after the crushing operation, was ready and pure so that you could put it into the lamp. After being set on fire it burnt purely or almost purely. There was no smoke. If the process is not effective enough, the oil is not pure and the flame causes also smoke.
This crushing the olive into oil is a picture of us, you and me. If and when we want to serve the Lord, we must go through the cleaning process. We have to surrender to the Lord and trust in that He will cleanse us for His use. Sometimes it is painful, because we need to put away things, that cause smoke. Can we say that we are seeking the will of the Lord in everything or do we seek healing, spouse or some other success for our life for instance of a witchdoctor.
We need to seek the face of God and His righteousness continuously, so according God`s Word He will give us everything else. For it´s said in Bible that God´s is Word water. That Word that we have read, starts to fill us and we will become overflowing. If we read the Word of God, Bible, it is like fog that moistens us little by little and at some point we notice that we are totally wet. We have to let the Word of God flow to other people from us wherever we walk and stay.
