(The following is a series of words received from the Lord in prayer concerning His Light, truths that are relevant for all believers. You can apply these words to your own personal life.)
I AM the WORD that is the LIGHT of LIFE!
Receiving that Light enabled you to become My child.
Just as Light is the creative force in the universe, so the entrance of that Light enabled Christ to be born in you.
The entrance of that Light causes the new birth that turns a sinner into a saint, one who is called to walk in the Light, be at one with the Light of the world, to live in fellowship with the Light and in covenant relationship with the Light.
The One who is the Light died for you to overcome every evidence of darkness in your life.

So this is love that comes from the glory of God and gives glory to Him when expressed in the lives of those who belong to the Feast. It is holy love and so reveals the presence of the Holy One! Such love means that the believer wants nothing to do with anything that is unholy in the Lord’s eyes. It is victorious love that enables the believer to overcome all that does not belong to the Feast, both in his own life and in the circumstances that arise in his experience.
Because of the nature of this love it is entirely the work of the Holy Spirit within believers. It cannot be generated by self-effort or determination. It comes from participation in the Feast and can only be maintained by continuing to live in the Feast. This is why this love is different in kind and degree from that which is normally evidenced among Christians.
This love has to find practical expression in the lives of those who possess it; they fulfil ... Read more
