There are dimensions of God’s light given to creatures in their different realms of existence. It is this light that distinguishes them in glory. God is called the Father of lights because he created different shades and colors of lights.
Light is not mere burning flame or brightness; Light is life; light is civilization; light refers to living beings. Spirits are light. They are bearers of glory, but there is no light within any realm of existence in eternity that can be compared with the very light which God is, wherein He dwells.
The substance of His make cannot be declared or described in any human or celestial tongue. The riches of His mysteries encoded in light unapproachable are beyond the utterances and apprehension of any creature, visible or invisible. They are to be experienced and they can be experienced only in the Son who is the image of the invisible God.
He is the brightness of God’s glory. Another way of saying that is this: He is the revelation of God’s riches in glory.
He created lesser lights to occupy the realms of eternity; and He has access into all created lights in all realms of existence but beings in these realms cannot access the light that He is.
He is called, ‘Light unapproachable’. That is to say, no creature truly knows God up till the time Jesus resurrected. Their knowledge of God is limited to the light He gives to them. The only one who can know God is he to whom He wills His unapproachable light. Such is admitted into the realms of Immortality.
I have good news for you sir/ma.
The New Birth experience is adoption experience. it is an experience designed by God for humans who became mortals because of Adam’s transgression, to transit from their mortal state into immortality. All the languages of the mortal men is too weak to explain in reality this transition experience. The out come of this adoption experience is the birth of the New creature .
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
We are immortal, we are ageless, we are incorruptible, we are undefiled, we abide, we are Life, we are righteous and holy before God our Father. This is our liberty. If you deny these realities of your identity in Christ, you have rejected Christ. This identity is the common wealth of the immortal ones. It is the identity of those tha has been adopted into the fellowship of the visible image of the invisible God. We are Christ. Christ simple means the identity of the immortal ones. I am Christ. Christ is our essence….
John 10:15-16. ‘just as the Father knows me and I know the Father — and I lay down my life for the sheep’
Jesus is the first Being ever to lay claims to the knowledge of God. He could say that because God willed His light to Jesus for man’s sake. That light is God’s divine Life. By this Life, Jesus in the living soul being state accessed the knowledge of God. Jesus said, “no man knoweth the Father accept the son”.
Let us remember that Jesus was on earth as a man; He was stripped of all the knowledge of His glory as God. He was totally emptied of His Godhood identity. He was Adam. He had to take on such form or else He could not have helped man out of his spiritual death state. So as man, Jesus came into an understanding of the knowledge of God and gained an admittance into that place where no man or creature can approach.
There is no created being that knows God the way Jesus knows Him. God will have to grant acces into His knowledge to a creature for such creature to know Him. That was what God did when Jesus came in the flesh. The scripture below throws light into that👇👇
Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.
John 5:26-27 For as the Father has life in Himself, so He has granted the Son to have life in Himself
It has been mentioned earlier that light is life. The light of a being is the law of its life. That light is its civilization. Looking at the scripture above, we can see that God gave His light to Jesus, and by that light, Jesus found access into the realms of God as a man.
When Jesus came into the flesh, He came without the knowledge of His personality as the Immortal Living Word who created all things. He came into the realm of the fallen man, and for Him to know God, the light of God must be given to Him.
This is what God did according to the scripture above. We too can know God now because this same light of God has been given to us through Jesus Christ. It is not unlawful for us to say that as the Father has life in Himself, so has He given to us. This life of God in our spirits gives us access into the deep things of God. Beloved, it is time to explore our new world — the Godhead.
As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
This prayer of Jesus in this scripture above shows that the very light of God has been given. There is no other way to know God except by God’s own light which is in God. Creation and creatures were made to serve beings who have the life of God. Darkness and they that dwell therein are inferior to those that have the life of God. To walk the earth without an understanding of this truth will certainly make one fulfill the scripture below:
I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.
But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.
God has declared us to be His sons according to 2 Cor 5:17. The New Creation is the very son of God. If you do not know this, the scripture says that you will fall like one of the princes, and die like a mere man. To be a god but die like a mere man is to remain perpetually under the influence of death even after being born of God.
1 John 5:10-11
Anyone who believes in the Son of God has this testimony in his spirit. Anyone who does not believe God has made him to be a liar, because he has not believed the testimony God has given about his Son.
The testimony of life is the record that God gave of His Son, Jesus Christ. This record of God about the Son is our victory (our faith). It is the liberty of the sons. With the knowledge of this testimony, we rule over death, Satan, fear, ageing, sin, sickness and disease. We reign as kings in the realm of life. This record of God concerning His Son is the key with which doors into all spiritual realms open to us. Do you know this testimony or are you ignorant of it?
Those who are ignorant of this testimony will fall like one of the princes and die like mere men. Mere men are those who are still subject to the law of sin and death. The lordship of Christ is man’s escape from the law of sin and death. Lack of the knowledge of this testimony makes the power of the cross of Jesus of none effect in the life of the saints. Those who come to understand and walk in this reality become masters in all realms of existence because they reign in life.
To struggle with Satan and demons in prayer shows how ignorant one is of the testimony of life which is in Christ Jesus. You can see how that prayer for more power and more anointing is an indication of lack of the knowledge of this testimony of life in Christ.
Our vocation as believers or sons of Yahweh is to come and know the things that are freely given to us in Christ Jesus. 🤩🤩🤩🤩
