Lights of the World

Dear Ones- 

This weekend was full of the WORD  and of Praise- as you come down off that spiritual "high" per say- your heart yurns to stay in that place where your every thought, your every breath is Him.. One thing that has resignated with me since it escaped Beth's mouth was us being the light. She gave us such a perspective of what that light looks like- what we look like from heaven. I will try my best to give you that same image that she so clearly gave me.

1 Peter 1:11-13

They inquired into what time or what circumstances the Spirit of Christ within them was indicating when He testified in advance to the messianic sufferings and the glories that would follow. It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves but you. These things have now been announced to you through those who preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. Angels desire to look into these things.A Call to Holy Living

 Therefore, with your minds ready for action, be serious and set your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

In these verses Peter is talking about our Holy Calling- in this part people are asking when would Christ return- they wanted to know when they would receive the rewards for following after Christ.

 In our flesh we too want that answer especially as we "suffer" for Christ and we "consider it joy to enter into diverse trials" in our lives. We want to know when our suffering will end and enjoy peace, and happiness according to the Word- but Peter stated- they came to a revelation that they are not serving for themselves or that reward but for CHRIST.

This is the part Beth spoke-- " Angels desire to look into these things"

The Angels desire to look into us-- they want to know, how, and why... they are look down from heaven and wonder about us. (imagine that )

Here is the image she painted for us-

The earth is the dominion of the enemy(right?) this is where the enemy dwells and where he is constantly wanting to see the Saints of Christ fall right????

I imagine this is what the earth looks like from heaven- as the evil reigns supreme on this earth. Completely Dark--

As the angels look down from heaven- seeking out the saints of Christ this is how they see us from heaven

Do you see- can you imagine--- complete blackness across the earth and as those angels look down upon heaven- we are like small lights, stars that are dotted across the darkness of this earth. The light of this World our Christ Jesus shining within each of us- radiant light -- small light -- as stars dotted across this dark world- It blew my mind- do you see dear Ones- how precious the gift we have received to be walking, living lights to shine forth HIS Gospel for HIS kingdom... What a joy, what a blessing we have been given such a great gift.

Matthew 5:14

14 “You are the light of the world. A city situated on a hill cannot be hidden.

DO not hide your light this week! By God's grace and peace--- I pray you can see what GOD so clearly gave me-- Oh Lord may my Words be pure and bring your Glory!

In Christ My Saviour --- Jesus

Your Servant- Angie
