And this is the message [the message of promise] which we have heard from Him and now are reporting to you: God is Light, and there is no darkness in Him at all [[h]no, not in any way]. [So] if we say we are partakers together and enjoy fellowship with Him when we live and move and are walking about in darkness, we are [both] speaking falsely and do not live and practice the Truth [which the Gospel presents]. But if we [really] are living and walking in the Light, as He [Himself] is in the Light, we have [true, unbroken] fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses (removes) us from all sin and guilt [keeps us cleansed from sin in all its forms and manifestations]. 1 John 1:5-8
I want to walk in the LIGHT!!
But be doers of the Word [obey the message], and not merely listeners to it, betraying yourselves [into deception by reasoning contrary to the Truth]. James 1:22
Light is not just for seeing. It is for walking in. You are not going to be blessed in just what you see. The Light of God is progressive. It is like the dawn...more and more light as the sun breaks forth. The Lord's light which He gives us is progressive if we walk in the light we have. How many of us were showed something a long time ago and chose to walk in it and some of us that ignored it?? The ones that did what He showed them you can see it in their lives..it is good. God had the same plan for the person that ignored His light. They have their plan...and then they failed..and they failed..they are frustrated and confused and cannot seem to put their hand on it. That is being in darkness. Why are they ignorant of some things?? Their life would have been totally different if they had obeyed so many years ago.
It is so important to do what God has told me and you to do. I was thinking of the towns that Joshua didn't destroy and the repercussions that happened because he disobeyed the Lord. Gaza, Gath, and Ashdad. In Gaza...this is where Samson found Delilah. In Gath...Goliath came out of this country. Ashdad...the Ark of the Covenant was stolen. wow! I would say that if God tells us to do something, do it thoroughly and completely. I wonder how many things I chose to ignore and in it how did it affect different ones.
