DWELL IN HEAVENLY LIGHT

David Nix

Wednesday, 2/26/2014

"I am the Lord Jesus, your Messiah and gentle shepherd and I bless you with words that are to be placed within the Words of the Latter Rain. Words have been given to help my people to grow in the power of truth and to stand fast as men and women of strong conviction. I have also blessed you with words to guide you in learning to know and follow the leadings and promptings of our spirit so that you can be lights that guide others into the ways of heavenly light. Principles of light are given to guide you in your daily walk but you must apply all that is given for all of our words will give power unto the light within for all is of light. We dwell in light, and if you will dwell in our presence, you too will be in the place of light and power. This day I shall give you verses and principles to help you to learn the power of dwelling in light, for to dwell is the power of remaining and to stay in the power and fullness of heavenly light you must dwell in heavenly light. My people seek brokenness and holiness and to be broken and to walk in holiness you must dwell in heavenly light. There is no power in darkness and there is no power in the shadows near light for you are children of the light and to know my fullness and to truly experience my glory you must dwell in light. Power is lost when light is lost and every time you leave the light of my presence you diminish the power of light within you. Light gives power to light so to remain in power and to grow in power you must dwell in the place of power. Going between light and darkness is a path that many walk but it is not the path to reach lasting change and the power of constant light. It is my desire that my people read the words of my servant Job as written in Job 24:13-16.

 

Job 24:13-16, "They are of those that rebel against the light; they know not the ways thereof, nor abide in the paths thereof.  (14)  The murderer rising with the light kills the poor and needy, and in the night is as a thief.  (15)  The eye also of the adulterer waits for the twilight, saying, No eye shall see me: and disguises his face.  (16)  In the dark they dig through houses, which they had marked for themselves in the daytime: they know not the light.”

 

In his words Job speaks of the evil and violent men who walk in dishonesty and wickedness, men and women who choose darkness over light for they are against the light. Rebellion is a choice and there are many upon the earth who have chosen to rebel against the light and to disdain all that is good, just and holy. They do not know the ways of light for they seek darkness and choose not to walk the path of light. They know not the ways of light for they have chosen to walk the path of their own desire. I speak of those who knowingly choose a path not of the light, but do you not also knowingly leave the path of light when you allow darkness to lead you unto the place of willful disobedience?  Sin is of the darkness and sin is rebellion against the light. To dwell in light means that you must remain in light always so you must learn to hate the ways of evil and seek to ever remain in light. You are children of the light and children of the day so have no part with those who seek darkness and the safety of the night. Dwell in heavenly light, abide with me and I will abide with you. It is my desire that my servant of the latter days place Ephesians 5:1-14 within my words.

 

Ephesians 5:1-14, "Be you therefore followers of God, as dear children;  (2)  And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us, and has given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savor.  (3)  But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becomes saints. (4) Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.  (5)  For this you know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.  (6)  Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things comes the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.  (7)  Be not you therefore partakers with them.  (8)  For you were sometimes darkness, but now are you light in the Lord, walk as children of light.  (9)  For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth (10) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.  (11)  And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.  (12)  For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.  (13)  But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever makes manifest is light.  (14) Wherefore he said, awake you that sleeps, and arise from the dead and Christ shall give you light.”

 

These are verses to guide you in the power of light, and based upon these verses I shall give you three principles to help you to stay in my presence and to dwell in heavenly light.

 

You have been called out of darkness unto the glorious light by the power of my name and my shed blood. You are purchased by my sacrifice and you entered into a sacred covenant at baptism and you belong to me. You once walked in the darkness and muted light of the world but you are no longer of the darkness for you are children of the light. To dwell in heavenly light you must not look back unto the darkness with longing but find peace in your new dwelling place. Do not allow whispered words to cause you to focus on your past ways and do not yearn to go back into the muted light. You are called, and you are chosen, so accept your calling and stay in the place of heavenly light. Follow me and I will lead you, but you must know that I only lead in light and I will never lead you unto darkness. You were of the darkness but all is past, so let it be past and walk in light as the children of the light. I have gathered you unto me so do not depart from me and seek to dwell in heavenly light always.

 

Be rooted in goodness and righteousness. Plant yourself in light and be unwavering in your convictions and bring forth the fruits of light. I lifted you from out of the pit and I have planted you as a tree by the living waters so stay where I have placed you and dwell in light. See the wisdom found in Psalms 1:1-6, "Blessed is the man that walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful.  (2)  But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.  (3)  And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he does shall prosper.  (4)  The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind drives away.  (5)  Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.  (6) For the Lord knows the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.” Do not seek the counsel of evil men and women and do not walk in their ways and do not sit at meat with them. You are to go unto the lost but never compromise truth and light and do not seek to please those who walk in darkness. Delight in my law, and delight in my ways and dwell in heavenly light. The ungodly are unstable for they are led by evil lusts and wickedness but the righteous are as trees planted by living waters. Do not view evil, and do not touch evil and do not open your heart unto evil.

 

Men shall all reap more than they sow for this is a law of the harvest, and if you sow in light you will reap in light, but if you sow in darkness, you shall reap in darkness. Do not plant your field with wheat and tares; do not plant in light and in darkness. Be you separate and have no fellowship with darkness. All things done in secret shall someday be manifested by light so plant only in light. Rise up from your slumber and realize that  you are at war with the powers of darkness and fully understand that the evil ones of darkness seek your destruction. To dwell in heavenly light you must stay planted and be firm and steadfast in light, so you need my light to strengthen you. Rise up and seek my light and I will give you light. Called unto light and chosen to be children of the light, so dwell with me and do not leave the shelter of my dwelling to walk in the shadows near light. Dwell in heavenly light and you shall walk in righteousness.”
