What does the Bible mean when it talks about light and dark? This is a good question as you cannot deal with light and darkness unless you know what you are dealing with. They both have to do with KNOWLEDGE. The more practical and experiential knowledge you have of God and His kingdom the greater His light (the knowledge of who He is) will shine (be evident) through you. This light is not manifest in the glowing of your physical body (not yet anyway) but in the spirit world where the knowledge of Christ makes you shine, literally, brighter, and brighter.

The less practical and experiential knowledge of God you have the darker your understanding of His kingdom will be. Some people have no understanding of God whatsoever and as a result reject everything that is associated with Him or His kingdom, who is JESUS CHRIST. Light then is a revelation (the ability to see and understand) of Jesus Christ. The more revelation you have of the Lord the greater your inner life with Him will be.

Satan’s entire goal for your life is to steal, to kill and to destroy the revelation you have of Jesus Christ in your life. He does not care if you do or do not go to church, if you are rich or poor, sick or healthy, a believer or an unbeliever. He will do everything in his power to discredit the Lord and the revelation of Jesus in your life. And he uses the things of this world to do it. Make no mistake and don’t underestimate your opponent. He is very good at what he does. There is an ancient proverb that says, “Age and treachery will always outwit youth and zeal”. He is older and far more sinister and cunning than you are, however, he cannot compete with the age and wisdom of the Ancient of Days who lives within you.

Light and dark is all governed through the measure of revelation, wisdom, knowledge, and understanding you have concerning the God of heaven, the kingdom of heaven and the righteousness that governs it. And this kingdom is within you – in your mind, your thoughts, your emotions, and your inner conversations.

To shine is to love your neighbour, to love your enemies, to pray for those who despitefully use you, hurt you, steal from you, etc. To turn the other cheek causes your light to shine! 🎇

The only victory you have against your enemy is to know, through experience, the lover of your soul. The deeper your revelation of God’s love is for you the greater your victories will be. The more you know His love the greater your light shines.

The knowledge that you need to win all the time is the knowledge of His love for you.

He wants you to know how wide and long and high and deep His love for you is so that you, within your heart and mind, will be filled with the fullness of Him.

Love and blessings
