“No longer will you have the sun for light by day, Nor for brightness will the moon give you light, But you will have the LORD for an everlasting light, And your God for your glory. “Your sun will no longer set, Nor will your moon wane; For you will have the LORD for an everlasting light And the days of your mourning will be over – Isaiah 60:19-20
The question which many have attempted to answer is what exactly constitutes the “Golden key of Life” – that which solves every earthly and spiritual problem. Some say the Golden Key of Life is Faith; some say it is Prayers; some say it is Jesus Christ, etc. A perfect understanding of this issue truly lies with our understanding of nature and the mysteries of God. There is a golden cord – The brightest of all lights, which emanates from the heart and soul of God, going throughout the face of the earth, connecting, sustaining, and keeping all things together in harmony. This is the great light and Life of God, the creator of all things. This great everlasting light is also known as the glory of God.
The word of God is telling us today that God is our everlasting light and Life, He is our Glory, and only through Him shall we secure victory over our present and future travails. Only God can bring a permanent or everlasting solution to our problems. We only need to be sensitive to His spiritual presence around us. Therefore, there is no philosopher’s stone, or Holy Gray anywhere which will give you total victory and solve all your problems. Rather, what you seek is the light and life which emanates from the heart and soul of God, from which flows the Glory of God. Beloved, this is the great light and life of God that removes every of your problem and grants you immortality, through eternal life.
The glory of God is wholly revealed by His Christ or His WORD– that which became flesh and dwelled among us as Jesus Christ (John 1:14) Jesus Himself drives home this point when He says to us in John 8:12, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in the darkness but will have the Light of life”. The LIGHT OF LIFE which Christ gives to us is ABSOLUTE knowledge and EVERLASTING Life – I.e. knowledge and Life that goes beyond every limitation and firmly rooted in God or resting with God who by himself is the origin and end of all things.
How then do we receive this great Light and life of God that answers all questions and solves each of our problems? First, the scripture says in 1 Corinthians 2:10, “these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God”. Therefore, the Holy Spirit is the revealer of God and His power. Beloved, it’s time to open yourself to receive the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit gives us a special baptism – Baptism in the Holy Spirit. Secondly, the scripture says for those who believe, they are given powers to become the sons of God, born by the Spirit of God.
Therefore, commencing from today, follow Jesus and obey His commandments. Ask God to send the Holy Spirit into your life. Draw closer to Jesus, the one who is God’s manifest among men and He will show you the way that leads straight to the heart and the soul of God where you will conquer all things which include Eternal Life.
Lord Jesus Christ, you say to me in Luke 11:10 – 13; “ For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who searches finds, and for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. Is there anyone among you who, if your child asks for a fish, will give a snake instead of a fish? Or if the child asks for an egg, will give a scorpion? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask of Him!” Therefore, Father in Heaven, I recognize the need for Your power to live this new life. I ask that you fill me with Your Holy Spirit. By faith, I receive Him right now! Thank You for baptizing me. Holy Spirit, you are welcome to my life. AMEN
