Light Of God And Christ

Daily Devotions:
by Christina Farris

Genesis 1:1-5 KJV
1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

How many ever made something and seen the need for opposite. God created the heavens and the earth. Two different places, and the earth was without form, empty and it was darkness/shadow of God was upon the face of the deep. God moved upon the face of the waters. God seen his shadow, moving over the earth. God is light, the city of the New Jerusalem God is light day and night, there is no darkness. There will be no shadow.

What is shadowing one might ask, God on the seventh day rested, he looked over his work. Student in the medical field might observe a doctor to learn how to be professional doctor. He will shadow in observance of all things a doctor does. Doctor will also shadow his student to make sure the student is doing his job correctly. This is done in all types of business, to learn from not only each other but as a teaching tool. It can be a nuisance at time to people who do not like being followed or watched.

God's hovering caused a shadow, a following of his work. God's work is obsolete, yet man would shadow God's design. In more then shadowing, but simple hovering to discover and dissect God's creation. Back to the light that God created, it was to be able to see by, and to see clearly by. The work done was not be done in darkness, but in the light of God's word.

God's word purified as he declare the creation of light. A physical light on the day of creation not a spiritual light at that time. But spiritual light was present, both his word, God the Father and the Holy Spirit. God was creating something to demonstrate what it would be to walk in the light of his word, not the shadowing of his presence. We shadow Christ through the gospels of faith. We may even shadow a minister or teachers. We may shadow but the shadow is the worker, only a temporary copy of the action. A shadow leaves no marks behind, no finger prints, no evidence of his presence, though he mimicks actions of God, his teacher in his mind, and heart. How many think on doing something long before you do, especially on something you believe is of God. Do you shadow the Holy Spirit in observance of the need, before your call of action by God's Spirit?

God created the earth in six days before resting, his shadow only being at night, but during the day there was light and what he created observed God's light without shadow. God's shadow observed the earth and the need of the earth upon it. Time of Noah, God seen man was wicked and plan to destroy it, but first he was choosing one family he knew, because they obeyed him in faith, to build an ark. A place of protection until the darkness of the earth was over. The destruction of God was complete. The shadowing in the ark caused by God, or was there light in darkness? We do not know what occured in the ark. Yet we know God sealed his people in there, to protect them until the storm was over. Our minds can not even imagine what inside was like, was their oil in the lamps, or a light only God created in the storm. We know in the city of the New Jerusalem there is no need of a candle. For God and Christ would be the light of the city. The need for light only being God's very presence needed for those there. No doubt God's word was present, if they did not go into some type of hibernation, no doubt markings declared what day it was. how long they would be in the ark. All this is a guess. Where God is there is light.

God is present in creation, with shadow on the earth, being observer of his being. This shadow was darkness, light was already available becauseo of God, but he separated the shadow of his being from his light. The copy of himself no longer or ever was him. His shadow created because of his presence but not him. He is light. The shadow mimicked him, but could not reproduce what he created by his power, it had no power of its own. A shadow in the night can terrify someone without knowledge of what it is. Where did God shadow come from? If God is light. Is there shadows in the light only if the light dims. Was the shadow gone, no it still exist, you can not see it, but it exist. God's shadow site unseen in his presence existed and it was seen in the surface of the deep. It produced no light.

Is the big bang theory impossible, ask yourself this is God's wrath before after the flood? First sign of God's wrath was when he order Adam and Eve out of the garden and placed their punishment upon them. Second sign of God's wrath in the story of Cain with his disobedience. If creation came with God's word, what force of his word created both heavens and the earth. A force of good, not evil. Yet darkness was on the face of the deep. A presence not his own, but created by his presence.

Hard to imagine but remember Satan was in heaven before being cast out. Satan was a falled angel. He followed God and was not God but he exalted himself in heaven. Isaiah 14. He was cast out of heaven. Lucifer was given the key to death. Yet when Christ came out of the grave, he took the key of death with him. Satan no longer having power over the grave. Yet Satan the shadow of God was not with him. God seen what Satan was doing and said let there be light. And he separated the light from the darkness. Grave of destruction that leads to hell for unbelievers and the light of faith that those that believe will not face death as man had before, but to be absent from the body is to present with the Lord. Let me go on to say if Christ now as the key of the death, with the law of if we believe in him we will be saved, our death is no longer going to the grave, only our natural bodies, but our spiritual bodies are home onward to heaven. What was the devil shadowing but memories of God work in heaven, and he could nothing like God could, so God created light on earth, and all that was on the earth of his creation, to remind the devil of his work. Devil went about trying hard to destroy it, and not even helping man but bitting at his ankles with all the work he did, because his works is like satan work a day of destruction. God's work is spiritual not of the things of heaven and the earth. Devil only wanted power and others to bow to him.

Was the devil in training before he exalted himself, apparently training to walk in God's footsteps, but he never understood he need to be humble as a servant to the other angels. An enabler and a builder, and other angels in heaven were cast out with him that day. Where is faith, not in the angels of God, because God teaches they to have to be humble before him, and not exalt themselves. God separated the darkness of Satan from him, and Satan is seen upon the deep, that God saw, as he created light and darkness to symbolize the difference in Satan and himself. God's light is still around in the night, but it shining as a candle or lighten door a sign of our spiritual darkness in need of light.

As a believer our light is God's light in us, shining direction in our life to glorify him, but also to aid us while on this earth, til the new Jerusalem where there is his light. Our light will embrace his light, because what he spoken has come to pass.

Dear Heavenly Father, we look at story of creation and see a metaphor of your spiritual work in heaven and the earth. We see the spiritual work you do in our life as your remove the darkness from us, to only see your light and desire the light more then the darkness. In Jesus precious name, Amen.

Continual Scripture Study: Revelation 22:5 KJV
5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.

Revelation 9:1 KJV
1 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.

Luke 10:18 KJV
18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

Isaiah 14:12 KJV
12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

Revelation 1:17-19 KJV
17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:
18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
19 Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;

Romans 8:1-17 KJV
1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.
13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
