SONS OF LIGHT
"A little while longer the light is with you. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness overtake you; he who walks in darkness does not know where he is going. "While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may become sons of light." John 12:35,36
If you are a son of light you are born again and baptized in the Holy Spirit and the very light of God resides within you! As for the daughters of light, Galatians 3:28 says we are all one in Christ! So as Sons and Daughters of light what is our calling in the earth and our responsibility to its people?
As new creations in Christ, we are a supernatural race of believers able to receive revelation from the throne of God and to see through the spiritual darkness that is descending upon the whole world. Twenty years ago, even ten would you ever believe what is going on this very moment in time for a people to want to abolish and disband law enforcement, for a mob to take over part of a city proclaiming possession, and local government won't lift a finger to stop it?
This is just the beginning with generations of liberal children, many without fathers, most never saved, not having received any teaching on Christianity, reaching adulthood with no moral compass, they walk in darkness! This is our time to SHINE!
Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. Isaiah 60:1-3
THE LAWLESS ONE
The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish because they did not receive the love of the truth. that they might be saved. II Thessalonians 2:9,10
Jesus warned His disciples that because of lawlessness most people's love would grow cold and we are seeing the beginning of this, the hardening of people's hearts that is turning them against one another. Protesters marching throughout the US leaving a path of destruction and violence, proclaiming that Black lives matter when in fact no one's life matters to a selfish mob of malcontents whining about being victims and demanding law enforcement to be abolished!
For a country, and an entire liberal Democrat party to sanction, promote and legalize the premeditated murder of its unborn citizens is about as dark as it gets! Out of sight, out of mind as the saying goes, but God sees and is deeply grieved over our heinous behavior and sinful slaughter of His precious children, the shedding of innocent blood! And if this isn't bad enough, their little body parts are ripped off from them and are being sold for profit!
The light of God's word and the anointing of His Spirit illuminates and destroys the darkness! This is our responsibility, not your pastor or some big-name preacher but you are to shine your light in your area of influence!
"I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness." John 12:46
And for this reason God will send them strong delusion that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. II Thessalonians 2:11,12
When people willfully walk in darkness and refuse the truth that is able to set them free, God sends a deluding influence over them so that they are blinded to that which is true! Remember Sodom and Gomorrah, who when the angels of God came to see their immoral city and decide it's fate, they were blinded by them when they tried to rape them, not seeing that they were divine beings able to save them!
So it is today, the multitudes are blinded by the light and unable to see its glory and turn from their wickedness, only to continue to walk in darkness! This is a time for us, the body of Christ to rise up out of our fear, doubt and unbelief and put on the armor of light and dispel the darkness in the land! Preach the gospel, teach His word, share your testimony, heal the sick and cast out demons! Jesus said, "Freely you received, now freely give!"
The world needs to see Jesus in us! Not just a bunch of pew sitters, but born again Spirit filled believers, sword in hand, walking in the supernatural power of the Most High! The church of the Lord Jesus Christ was never a place to go, but an exact replica of the Person of the Christ! "SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF LIGHT!"
That you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power for all patience and longsuffering with joy; giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love. Colossians 1:10-13
Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin
