Prelude to Light
The Elemental Origin
of all things.
Godís manifest Glory is seen in the heavens, for by the Glory of His Word (His Son Jesus Christ/Yeshua haMashiach), He created the fabric of time and planted the heavens and the earth within the flow of time: Now through His Word of Salvation, the Eternal and Almighty God reveals to His creation of mankind, Godís unsurpassing Sacrificial Love for the lost sinner of mankind. (See Hebrews 1 verse 1 thru 2, verse 8 thru 12.) Foundationally, we have already expressed that our faith, knowledge and belief, is as it is written in scripture: All things that are made, were made by God through Jesus Christ and consist in Him (as the power and light substance of God's spoken Word), and all things made are held together in obedience to HIS Eternal Word of Power.
In the beginning (of time), Elohim created the heavens and the earth.
God has in these last days spoken unto us by His Son, Whom He has appointed Heir of all things, by Whom also He made the worlds; Who being the brightness of His Glory, and the expressed Image of His Person, and upholding all things by the Word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on High: (Hebrews 1 verse 1 thru 3.) And, Thou Lord in the beginning, has laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of Thy hands: They shall perish; but Thou shall remain; and they all shall wax old as does a garment; And as a vesture shall Thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: But Thou art the Same, and Thy years shall not fail. (Hebrews 1 verse 10 thru 12.)
He is the Image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities, all things have been created through Him, and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together, and by Him all things consist. (Colossians 1 verse 15 thru 17. ) For us there is but one God, the Father, from Whom are all things, and we in Him; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, by Whom all things came to be, and through Whom we live. (1st Corinthians 8 verse 6.)
In the beginnings of His creation, the Father of lights in His Wisdom brought forth, through the infinite power and substance of His Word, physical light with all its dimensions, seen and unseen, known and unknown. The substance of God's Light energy existed in Eternity, before God's creative Word brought forth in time the heavens and then established the order in the earth. The creative Word of God set the boundaries of the land and the water on earth, and then in His days of creation, brought forth into existence the plants and animals, and then finally the formation of Man/Adam by His own hand. In the order of all things, it should be evident that God's creative light energy, with its unlimited properties in God, is necessary for all life forms to exist.
After the fall of Adam, with his willful separation from the heart of God, all of man kind has been lost in the violence of sin's death, becoming within themselves a dark void, lacking the essential spiritual Light and Truth that only comes from the Infinite God of the living. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him (the Word); and without Him was not any thing made that was made. In Him was Life, and the Life was the Light of men. And the Light shines in darkness, and the darkness comprehended it not. (John 1 verse 1 thru 5.) He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not. (John 1 verse 10.)
In God's appointed redemptive time, Yahweh God sent into this world, that great Spiritual Light of His Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus/Yeshua was the embodiment of Eternal Light and the pre-incarnate Word of Truth, Who came to the earth in the genetic flesh of the first Man/Adam. In the Almighty's mercy, He sent His Word to become Yahweh's Only Begotten Son, and to lead the sin captive souls of men out of their darkness and death, and into the Light of His Father's Holy and Eternal Presence. Jesus speaking to the accusing Pharisees said: I AM the Light of the world; he who follows Me, will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of Life. (John 8 verse 12.) That True Light of Christ is infinitely essential for the a new birth of the souls of human kind, so that they may live in the abundance of Life that only God can give: For this Light comes from the very Heart of the Father of Creation, and is centered upon the Almighty's great Love for the life of His creation of mankind. Therefore, Jesus Christ, God's Word of Salvation and the Life of mankind, came forth from the bosom of His Father, and with the desire of the heart of His Father, the Son of Man so desires to bring the lost children of man kind, into the bosom of His Father God Almighty. A new birth of the soul of man, is absolutely necessary, followed by the renewing of the spirit of their mind through the leading of Christ's Holy Spirit of Truth. No man has seen God at any time; the Only Begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him. (In full Context John 1 verse 1 thru 18.)
None of us know anything about the mind of our own small heart, let alone the great expanse of the Heart of the Infinite God Almighty. Even so, it should be evident that for our new life to continue in Christ, we must remain in the Presence of the Giver of the Light of God's Word and Eternal Son, Jesus Christ. (See Jeremiah 17 verse 9 thru 10.) For Jesus Christ is the Light of the World, and within Him there is no darkness at all. We, of the faith within Christ Jesus, have each become accountable to this great Light of Christ that God has given to us, and He desires to fully spread His Light within our own restrictive hearts.
I pray that the reader will continue to give room within your own heart, and to allow the writer to speak further on this great Light, Jesus Christ. The writing are presented for the edification for all of the living members within Christ's Body, revealing His Grace and revelation that the Lord through His Spirit of Truth birthed into the heart and soul of a living member of His Body.
