For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:6.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:

I am light and you are in My image and according to My likeness. You are light as well.

What do I mean by that? When I spoke “Light be!” to a void, dark, and empty place, I filled it with life. Life only comes from Me. Everything that is alive is contained and sustained in the life that I released and continue to sustain you in, and not only you, but everything that lives.

Even if a person rejects Me, they are only alive because of the life they have from and in Me. It is a continuum, the closer you are to Me, the more like Me you become, until in seeing you, people see Me. They see and feel the radiance and power of the Light in you, which is pure life.

My life is light, you are alive with My life, which is a pure life where there are no places in you that you must hide because of evil deeds, thoughts, or words that need to be kept in darkness so they will not be exposed. All that is in you could be spoken from the housetops or televised across the nation and it would be full of Light, the Light of Life, full of that precious gift of life that flows and pours from My heart into yours.

In My presence is fullness of joy. Joy is living in the Light. No regrets, no hindrance to wonders, signs, and miracles, and no tormenting, disquieting or evil thing can penetrate above the light line. No darkness can persist in the Kingdom of Light, there is only day.

From the beginning I have shone My Light into your hearts. For with Me is the fountain of life and in My Light you see Light. Adam put that light out in his life and lived below the light line. But in Christ, when I raised Him to new life, I raised you in Him and I seated you with Him on His Throne, and He is with Me in the very center of My Throne. And it is a place of pure Light.

Adam took you out of My Light to the places of the outer darkness of the continuum where you are no longer like Me but like the devil, living in darkness, hating, hiding, and tearing one another apart, full of torment, depression, offense, lust, and bitterness. That is the low life. But that is not who you really are in your deepest parts. No one living in the filth of sin is at peace in their inner man.

Within all born of Adam’s line there is a dry well of your spirit that is just waiting for the drink of living water that My Son offers you as He offered the Samaritan woman at the well. She was living below the light line, but when she drank from the well of My Word that she heard from the lips of Jesus, the dry well in her filled up again and began to leap up to eternal life. And the fountain did not stop there, it flowed out of her to a thirsty world. And the whole town came out to drink of the living water of light that Christ had to offer.

With Me is the fountain of life and in My light you see light. How do you see it? In My Word. My Words are Words of Life and Words of Light. My Words cleanse you and purge you of all that is of darkness and bring you into the joy of new birth into My marvelous light. When you find My Words you find life.

The opening of Your Words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple. Psalm 119:130

In My Word you see Me. And when My Word became flesh and dwelt among you He brought you the Light.

Walk in the Light and you will become Light. How is that? You bring the dark things into the light and expose them to the light and they are cleaned out by the light. Like the bugs hiding under a rock in the darkness, when you turn it over into the light of the sun, they flee.

You were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light, for the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth, trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord. Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them; for it is disgraceful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret. But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light. Ephesians 5:8-13.

The question is then, how do you bring all that is in you to the light so you can become lit up with My light so you can shine upon the world as well on the golden lampstand with My Son? You do not hide your sins from Me and then justify yourself when they are exposed by blaming others, and even Me. This is what Adam did. He violated My Word and sin entered the world and with sin death, but he did not eagerly rush into My light when I came to walk with him in the Garden. He hid in the darkness and tried to make a covering for himself so his sin would not be exposed. And then when I questioned him so that he would come back to My light to expose his sin and let Me cleanse him of all unrighteousness, he would not admit his guilt but blamed Me and his wife. He refused to bring what he had done into the light. And it kept him plunged in the darkness he had chosen.

The man said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me from the tree, and I ate.” Genesis 3:12.

Be quick to repent and come to Me. Expose all in you to My light. And know that I am always there to embrace you and cleanse you from all unrighteousness.

This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth; but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is not in us. 1 John 1:5-10.

Adam would not say that he sinned, even though he had openly done what I had told him not to do. When you act in defiance of My Word, you are refusing to accept My Word as truth, seeing the contrary action as the better choice. You are calling Me a liar and the action contrary to what I have commanded as the truth for your life. You may not think of it that way but when you disobey My Word, you are making Me out to be a liar whose word you do not trust enough to obey.

And do not harbor hatred and ill will, resentment and bitterness, against another in your heart. You are walking in darkness when you do that and you must flee that darkness by bringing your thoughts to Me and exposing them to My light. Let Me help you to be quick to forgive. With Me, you can do all things.

The one who loves his brother abides in the Light and there is no cause for stumbling in him. But the one who hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going because the darkness has blinded his eyes. 1 John 2:10-11.

My servant David learned that bringing everything to Me and laying it bare before Me was his source of cleansing, healing, and restoration.

When I kept silent about my sin, my body wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me; My vitality was drained away as with the fever heat of summer. Selah. I acknowledged my sin to You, and my iniquity I did not hide; I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the LORD”; and You forgave the guilt of my sin. Selah. Therefore, let everyone who is godly pray to You in a time when You may be found; surely in a flood of great waters they will not reach him. You are my hiding place; You preserve me from trouble; You surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah. Psalm 32:3-7.

When David sinned he was quick to repent and quick to confess his sin to Me and acknowledge that he had done it. He never blamed Me or others for his sin.

Be gracious to me, O God, according to Your lovingkindness; according to the greatness of Your compassion blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. I know my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me. Against You, You only, I have sinned and done what is evil in Your sight, so that You are justified when You speak and blameless when You judge. Psalm 51:1-4.

He took responsibility for it before Me, he brought it into My light for Me to cleanse him of it. He knew I was his Light and his Salvation. Psalm 27:1. And then he rejoiced in My forgiveness and unfailing love in song. Yes, he knew the secret to get back out of the darkness into My Light. He woke the dawn with his song.

Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, the God of my salvation; then my tongue will joyfully sing of Your righteousness. O LORD, open my lips, that my mouth may declare Your praise. Psalm 51:14-15.

Get your eyes out of the darkness to be filled with light, keep your eyes on the Light of Life and you will live.

No one, after lighting a lamp, puts it away in a cellar nor under a basket, but on the lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light. The eye is the lamp of your body; when your eye is clear, your whole body also is full of light; but when it is bad, your body also is full of darkness. Then watch out that the light in you is not darkness. If therefore your whole body is full of light, with no dark part in it, it will be wholly illumined, as when the lamp illumines you with its rays. Luke 11:33-36.

My Word is your light to the throne of grace when you are in a dark place, and the earth is engulfed in deep darkness but on you My light is shining, that is, My glory. It is like the Israelites in Goshen when all of the land of Egypt was engulfed in deepest darkness there was light in the dwellings of My covenant people. Exodus 10:23.

“Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you. For behold, darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness the peoples; but the LORD will rise upon you and His glory will appear upon you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. Isaiah 60:1-3.

And where is that wondrous light of glory shining upon you from? My face.

O God, restore us and cause Your face to shine upon us, and we will be saved. Psalm 80:3.

And that is how I taught Moses to bless the Israelites. With My shining face of light beamed upon them like a lighthouse.

The LORD bless you, and keep you; The LORD make His face shine on you, And give you His grace; The LORD smile upon you, and give you Shalom peace. Numbers 6:24-26.

Blessed are the people who know the joyful shout! They walk in the light of My countenance. Psalm 89:15.

How do you stay in the Light without ever going back into darkness? For if you do, how deep will the darkness be. It comes back to the big three again that are always My Will for YOU: rejoice always, pray without ceasing, and give constant thanks. You rejoice in Me over the Blood that continually cleanses you of all sin and keeps you in the Light, you cast all your care upon Me and have no anxiety about anything because your are bringing everything into My light in prayer without ceasing, and you are constantly overflowing with thanksgiving of how I have cleansed you of all sin, poured My love in you, and lifted up your countenance in the radiance of Mine. Look up at Me and smile, you will find Me smiling at you. Your faces will never be ashamed. Look for the one with the radiant face. They are the ones who know the joyful shout.

For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:6.

And letting in the light of My love heals you in every part of you. Even in medical science today they use laser treatments and radiation therapy as methods of healing and removing unwanted growths and other markings, stains, and undesirable elements. How much more powerful is light emanating from its source. Cancer, tumors, growths, disease, joint pain are easily healed in My light. Bring these things to Me and expose them to My light. I can drive out the darkness of cancer with one beam from My face and one ray from the Son of Righteousness’. Just open it up to Me.

I love you. Walk in the light of My love. I lit your lamp with love.

We have the prophetic word made more sure, to which you do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts. 2 Peter 1:19.
