THE LIGHT

“1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto

you. 2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a

thief in the night. 3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden

destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they

shall not escape. 4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should

overtake you as a thief. 5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the

day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. 6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do

others; but let us watch and be sober. 7 For they that sleep sleep in the night;

and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.” 1 Thesselonians 5: 1-7

There are times you don’t know what is coming, and it comes suddenly. And there

are times when you are not prepared for what is coming. There are times when

you do not anticipate what is coming. There are times when you get thrown into a

battle instantly. The thing that will send you forth, is the light in you. The thing

that will make you firm is the light in you and that maybe a difficult time to begin

to fill your body with light. So you need the light to be there before the battle

comes.

Indeed, it is not every time that you see that evil is coming. There are times, and it

is very important as a christian that when the light of the word is there, therefore

your eye must be single and the only thing that can keep your body full of light if

your eye is single. Now what is a single eye? A single eye is an eye that is focused

on God. Is an eye that sees things from the perspective of God. Now you may

think that that is easy and its easy theoritically, but practically, it is difficult. That is

an eye that when you are in the middle of a battle, when the doctor says you

cannot stand, when everything confirms otherwise, something in you, which is

the eyes of God says that what this person is saying is biologically correct, what

this person is saying is medically correct. But you know what, I am seeing with the

eyes of God and therefore, my reality is what God says. I don’t know if you

understand what am saying. It is the assurance that allows you to speak contrary

to the situation that you are in. It is not something that you mouth because

indeed how can you mouth something contrary when they have given you a sack

letter. How can you mouth something contrary, when you cannot pay the school

fees of your children? How can you mouth something contrary when you have a

health challenge? It takes the eyes of God. It takes the mind of God to speak

contrary to the situation. As we read in the book of Thesselonians now, that

everything may seem good, everything may seem right, everything may be going

well. Then suddenly, distraction comes but for you, whose body is full of light, it is

not sudden. So, to the one in the world when they shall say (verse 3) these are

they who are in the world. These are not just they whose body is full of darkness,

this is also for they whose light has been darkened. This is also for those whose

body is not full of light. Verse 4. But you brethren, you that are full of light, you

are not in darkness and that that day will overtake you, it will not overtake you as

a thief. You are the children of the light and the children of the day you are not of

the night nor of the darkness.

You must be able to profess the opposite of words. You must be able to profess

the opposite of what is happening around you.  No matter how unreasonable, no

matter how unproven, in the human mind, it may be, no matter how unscientific

it may be, when the doctor confirms that you cannot have children, confirms with

every scan in this world, confirm with everything that can be used to confirm it,

you need your body to be full of light for you to see that that is not your reality.

Your reality is what God says about you. It is difficult to go against something that

is established by the world because when the world establishes something, it

backs it up with facts. When the world establishes something, it backs it up with

proof. But there is a difference between facts and truth. That thing that has been

established by the world maybe the fact but it is not necessarily the truth.

The truth is what God says about that situation. That is the truth, and if you are

not able to speak that truth in the middle of that situation, then you cannot stand

up for it. And the only thing that can keep you and can enable you to speak the

truth and to stand in that truth is if your eye is single and your body is full of light.

If your eye is single and your body is full of light, you will speak that truth

consistently no matter what is around you.
