I have been studying the relationship between fire and light, and how light consumes darkness- becoming fire to darkness. "And the light shines in the darkness and the darkness cannot overcome it". Everything that is hidden will be brought to light. Death is the veil that covers the peoples and God says, "On this mountain I will remove the veil that covers the peoples"."If our gospel is veiled it is veiled to those who are perishing"(apollumi -lost, being destroyed by death until light shines out of darkness/chaos).......For God, who said, "Light shall shine out of darkness," is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. (Christ uncovered is life)(2Co 4:1-6)
The devil and his angels will be brought to exposure, being held in the "fire/light/love/life" presence of God until they bow the knee and confess(Phil 2:10 ;1 Cor 15:22-28. I think this is already begun....
Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord: (Eph 3:8-11)
This eternal purpose is clearly stated in Paul's introductory statements to the Ephesian church- refers back to it several times in the letter.
Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him: In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.(Eph 1:8-12)
God is by no means done with His church.... You might say, WE are the lake of fire-- HOLY SMOKES!!!
Know ye not that ye shall judge angels?
But if all prophesy, and there come in one that believeth not, or one unlearned, he is convinced of all, he is judged of all: And thus are the secrets of his heart made manifest; and so falling down on his face he will worship God, and report that God is in you of a truth.
WoW! What Awaits Us!!!
...he also shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, that hath been mingled unmixed in the cup of His anger, and he shall be tormented(touch stone) in fire(pur) and(kai-even) brimstone(thieon god-fire) before the holy messengers(us), and before the Lamb, and the smoke of their torment doth go up to ages of ages(even as the smoke of Sodom and Gomrah's punishment rises as a monument to the ages); and they have no rest day and night, who are bowing before the beast and his image, also if any doth receive the mark of his name(for their is no rest for the wicked, until they bow the knee and find rest in Jesus....my interpretation).(Rev 14:10-11)
This is a spiritual picture of spiritual reality both in the NOW, TODAY and in the DAY that is dawning UPON ALL, the great DAY OF GOD, the LIGHT(let there be light) that SEPARATES out the darkness and brings FORM AND FRUITFULNESS where once all was WITHOUT FORM AND VOID;CHAOTIC;SMELLING OF DEATH.
As children of the day we must AWAKEN so that the LIGHT OF CHRIST WILL DAWN IN US. We must put on Christ. We must PAY CLOSER ATTENTION TO THE PROPHETIC WORD like a Lamp(Thy word o Lord is a lamp to my feet) shining in a dark place till the DAY DAWNSand the MORNING STAR ARISES IN OUR HEARTS!
There is something coming in us that is "exceedingly and abundantly above and beyond all we could ask or even think!"
Eye has not seen nor ear heard, but the Spirit is making it known to us.
And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. (Eph 2:6-7)
And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcomes shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God.
Get ready to get BUSY brothers and sisters HAHA! Jesus is being uncovered IN US!
