Word for Today: Light (3)-There is no darkness in God.
Ministry of the Word(MOW) : True Spirituality
“This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all ” (1John 1:5).
God is light. There is no trace of darkness in God at all . There is no darkness in Christ Jesus.
I often wonder why there are so much dishonesty, pretences, deceits, hypocrisies , seductions and exploitations in the church. I often wonder why many preachers do not often quote: “Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give” (Matthew 10:8), yet the scripture was given by Jesus Christ Himself . I often wonder why many preachers are very good at quoting Malachi 3:10, “Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it”. I often wonder why Jesus Christ Himself, never quoted this Malachi once through out His earthly ministry. Yet, the book of Malachi was already written. Please, ponder on it.
The church is meant to be an embodiment of light. The church is meant to be the epitome of purity and holiness. The church is meant to be the custodian of divine nature. There should be no trace of darkness in the church. I often wonder why there is so much darkness in the church. Please, if any reader of this message has revelations or understanding as to why the word of God is being ‘sold’ by men and women of God, under different guises, let him or she educate me. We receive the word of God freely. Why are we not giving the word of God freely to people.
True, if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into a pit ( Luke 6:39).
Ignorance is darkness; yet there is so much ignorance in the church. Fear, doubt, unbelief, sickness, poverty, frustration, stagnation, failure etc , are products of darkness. No wonder, these challenges are common in the church .
Only the truth can make you free indeed:
“If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed” (John 8:36).
The truth is that darkness cannot comprehend light:
“And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not” (John 1:5).
Have a blessed week
Thank you Jesus
