Being Light



Our Bible Study Teacher had prepared a lesson about LIGHT.  I took notes and present an edited message.
 
The Lamp-stand in the tent tabernacle allowed light in the darkness.  It burned continually, as the Priests tended to add oil and trim the wicks. 

Jesus the Son of Man, yet He is God and is called the Light of the world.

The church is the Light – and we are the church, we are the Light to our world.

Revelation 1:6 And has made us to be a kingdom and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

As priests we are to care for our light and keep it trimmed.  Those things that hinder our walk with God, must be put away and removed so that our light will remain bright and shinning.  We are to be like onto a city set on a hill that cannot be hid.  Our light effects others.

The Egyptians worshiped the Sun God, because of it’s great light.  While the Children of Israel were slaves in Egypt, many forgot the true God and took up the religion of their Masters.  At times it is easy to take up the belief of society in our day and forget to study God’s word and follow the Holy Spirit to be our guiding light. 
 
There is darkness in the world even in "Religion" and a need for truth with a personal Relationship with Christ Jesus.

Ephesians 1:17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:

God anointed talented people who were Gifted to carve and decorate the furniture in the tent tabernacle.  This revealed a pattern of Heaven.

John on the Island of Patmos had an encounter with the Lord and heard the voice of Jesus saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last. 
 
One of the gentlemen in our class commented that Alpha is to breathe in, and Omega is to breathe out.  God is our very breath.  Jesus is in the midst of the church, revealing who He is. 
Revelation 1:12-18 And I turned to see the voice that spoke with me. And I saw seven golden candlesticks; And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a white garment down to the foot. And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp two edged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shine in his strength.  And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: I am he that lives, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
God has set in the Church Gifts.  1 Corinthians 12:28 And God has set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helpers, administrators, various kinds of tongues.
We are worshipping God Almighty the LIGHT who has provided our magnificent salvation.
Isaiah 2:5 O house of Jacob, come and let us walk in the light of the LORD.

Isaiah 5:20 Woe onto them who call evil good, and put darkness for light.
In the darkness we will stumble.  God's Word is Light as we read it daily.
Luke 11:35  Take heed therefore that the light which is in you be not darkness.
Proverbs 20:27 The spirit of man is the lamp of the LORD, Searching all the innermost parts of his being.
We are a three part person; We are a Spirit, we have soul and live in a body.  Our spirit reaches out to God, our body to the world and our soul is our will, emotions and our choices.

Allow the Light of Christ to shine through you onto the world.
