GUIDING LIGHTS

David Nix

Wednesday, 2/26/2014

"I am the Lord Jesus, your Messiah and most tender shepherd and I bless you with words that are to be placed within the Words of the Latter Rain. Truth must be cherished and truth must be defended against all evil and all efforts to remove truth from the minds and hearts of men and women all over the earth. The words given on truth and conviction will help all who seek to stand fast without compromise. This day I bless you with words to guide you in helping others to see light and to receive light. There are times when those who call upon my name hide my light and there are also times when my people do not know how to shine the light of heaven upon others. There is power in knowing how to give light and in knowing how much light to give. You are to be constant lights, but light can be gathered and sent so therefore, light can be magnified and light can be increased. Light is great power and in light there is life but light must nurture and light must guide. There are those who have good intentions but they harm others and they make others flee by not understanding how to give light and how much light to give. I shall give you verses and principles to guide you this day. Light should ever be seen in your lives but you must learn when light must be intensified and when light must be soft and gentle. There is great power when men and women learn to be guiding lights, for a guide understands what to do and when to do it. It is my desire that you read 1Timothy 2:1-6.

 

1 Timothy 2:1-6, "I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men.  (2)  For kings, and for all that are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.  (3)  For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior.  (4)  Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.  (5)  For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,  (6)  Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.”

In these verses there are three principles that I shall declare unto you and if you will seek to understand and if you will apply my words, you shall grow in the power of being a light that guides others. Pride seeks to lead by controlling and love seeks to guide with gentleness and patience. You are to shine forth truth but you are to be gentle lights that guide with hearts deeply rooted in love. I shall give you other verses to guide you in the principles that I desire you to learn. Read my words and apply my words so that you will be guiding lights of love.

 

1. The first principle is about brotherly love and about the gospel message that must be preached unto all the world, and what I desire you to see is found in verses 1-4. It is my desire and the desire of my Father that all men and women be saved and that all walk in truth. This must also be your desire, and this is the first principle, you must know that we love all men and women and that we desire all to be saved and you must set your heart upon this desire. Knowing our great purpose will give power to your life. Do not consider anyone to be beyond salvation for my blood is sufficient for all sin. You see that prayer is your greatest power and through prayer you can send light and you also grow in light. Lift up prayers for all people. Seek to lead a quiet and peaceful life for light that is calm and sure will gently guide. ‘All men and women’ excludes none, so do not quickly judge and do not deny all men the hope of such a great salvation. Knowing our desire for all will help you to guide for all are to be guided toward our covenant blessings and our spiritual inheritance. Read the words of my servant David in Psalms 49:1-8.

 

Psalms 49:1-8, "Hear this, all you people; give ear, all you inhabitants of the world.  (2)  Both low and high, rich and poor, together.  (3)  My mouth shall speak of wisdom, and the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding.  (4)  I will incline my ear to a parable: I will open my dark saying upon the harp.  (5)  Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil, when the iniquity of my heels shall compass me about?  (6)  They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches;  (7)  None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him:  (8)  For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceases forever.”

 

You must lead with the light of love, but you cannot redeem your brothers and sisters, but you can guide them unto the redemption found in me for every living soul is precious in my eyes. Fulfill my desire and be guiding lights unto all.

 

2. The second principle is found in verse 5. To guide men and women you must guide them in light and truth for there is a false way and many walk therein. There are many religions upon the earth and even within what is known as Christianity there is a wide variance on what is believed and taught. To be guiding lights of truth you must know truth, you must understand truth, and you must live by truth, for how can you rescue those in darkness if you yourself dwell in darkness? There is only one God who is the Great Eternal Light and there is only one Messiah and High priest between God and all men and that is me for I am the only Son of the Lord God above all and I am the only way unto the Father and I am the way unto salvation. This is the second principle to be guiding lights, you lead men and women unto me and unto my Father. I shall rescue and save but you must guide men and women to me. There is no other way unto salvation but through me, so I must be the focus and center of your life and you must let my light shine forth with gentleness, love, and wisdom so that all men and women you meet will see me in you. Shining lights of love and mercy shall be seen clearly in a world filled with darkness. Look unto the words of truth found in 1 Peter 3:15-16.

 

1 Peter 3:15-16, "But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asks you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:  (16) Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.”

 

I am the answer, but if your life is not lived as a guiding light of gentleness and love others will not hear your words for they will be lost in the sound of your judgmental words and words that seek to change others based upon your pride. Actions will not save the lost, but actions of light and words of light will lead them to me, but I must be clearly seen in all of your words and actions. This does not mean that you are to speak of me in every sentence and present yourself as one who lacks balance, this means that Christian love, and charity, and kindness and patience are clearly seen in all that you do and say. Be guiding lights that lead men and women to me by letting my light lead you and shine forth from you.

 

3. The third principle is found in verse 6. You must lead men and women to me and my Father, but the message of salvation must be focused upon me, and you must testify of me and let all men and women know that I died for them. The truth that I am the ransom for all is the third principle, for all have sinned and come short of my glory. It matters not that you show kindness and love if my name is never mentioned. Your words and actions must be rooted in heavenly light but your words and actions must also testify that you are a Christian and that you believe in me and that I guide your life. Is your life a living testimony that you belong to me and that you live your life by truth and light? See the truth found in 1 Corinthians 2:1-2.

 

1 Corinthians 2:1-2, "And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.  (2) For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.”

 

Your testimony must not be of eloquent words and expression of doctrine if your testimony is not centered upon me and my sacrifice for all people. You must declare the salvation found in the sacrifice freely given and proclaim the power found in my name and my shed blood. Declare the testimony of my salvation in your words and in your actions, let all who know you and all who cross your path clearly see your good works and let them hear your good words, and when they ask about the hope that lives within you, testify unto them about my love and my salvation that is unto all who will believe.”
