Day 42 - Jesus, Light of the World

 Be a Beacon of His Light!

It's day 42; 42 is made up of 2 Hebrew letters mem - beth (water flowing, coming forth & house, in, into = household or family). Together, these letters signify a flow of time and events until the arrival of a house or household (family). http://www.gods-kingdom-ministries.net/daily-weblogs/2011/10-2011/the-biblical-meaning-of-41-and-42/

 From the foundation of the world God planned for a family; a family created in His image and likeness. Upon this family He bestowed authority and gave them dominion to rule upon the earth. He blessed them and told them to be fruitful, to multiple and fill the earth.

Unfortunately sin entered into mans heart and separated the family from their Creator and their mission.

Genesis 1:26-27 And God said, Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the heavens, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over all the creepers creeping on the earth. And God created man in His image; in the image of God He created him. He created them male and female. And God blessed them. And God said to them, Be fruitful, and multiply and fill the earth, and subdue it. And have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the fowl of the heavens, and all animals that move upon the earth.

 BUT God had a plan to redeem mankind and get His family back into His household. His glorious plan was a man. the Son of God, the Lord Christ Jesus.

 The prophets foretold of His coming, those who sit in darkness will see a great Light!

Isaiah 9: 2 The people who walk in darknesswill see a great light; Those who live in a dark land, The light will shine on them.

 The apostle affirmed this GREAT LIGHT!

Matthew 4:16 The people who sat in darkness saw a great Light; and Light has sprung up to those who sat in the region and shadow of death

 Jesus declared, I am the LIGHT of the world he who follows Me shall not walk in darkness.

John 8:12Then Jesus spoke again to them, saying, I am the Light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

 We are called to be beacons of light drawing mankind unto the Light of the world.

Matthew 5:14-16 You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do men light a lamp and put it under the grain-measure, but on a lampstand. And it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in Heaven.

We have seen this week that we are called to be beacons of the glorious Light of the world, Jesus!

Yes, you are truly living in dark times but don't be troubled or worried for I AM with you. Don't hide away your light I have called you to rise up and shine, release the glory of the Lord that is upon you into the earth. As you lift up the Light - My beloved son, Jesus, all men will be draw to Him. Those who sit in darkness can be delivered and brought into the Light as you let your light shine darkness will flee and mankind will be set free through the love of My Son. Be beacons of Light, be beacons of the Light in this dark world says Almighty God.

Spreading the Light,
