DIVINE NATURE PART IV
God is Light and in Him is no darkness at all. The Bible says:
“This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.” I John 1:5
One of the fundamental make-up of God is Light that has no stain or iota of darkness. God is absolute Light. He even dwells in unapproachable and inaccessible light. God lives inhumanly inaccessible light. The Bible says:
“Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.” – I Timothy 6:16
God is Light; He lives in Light and in Him is Light that no darkness can comprehend. The Bible says:
“And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.” – John 1:5
The Light in God is One that lightens or illuminates everyone that comes into this world. The Light in God is eternally potent to lighten everyone in all generations and at all times. The Bible says:
“That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.” – John 1:9
The implication of the divine nature of God as Light is that the more of that nature we possess, the more we maintain our dominion over darkness. Dr. David Oyedepo said:
“The dominion of light over darkness is instant and unquestionable” As a matter of fact, the dominion of light over darkness is eternal. The devil, his cohorts, and everything they represent is referred to as darkness. The devil’s kingdom is called the kingdom of darkness and power of darkness. Revelation 16:10; Colossians 1:13. The weakness of darkness is revealed at every introduction of light.
No child of God should be afraid of satan, demons, and all his human agents. It is an aberration for a believer in Jesus Christ to be afraid of witches, wizards, occultic people, and their works. They are simply manifestations of darkness. Light will ever remain a terror to darkness anywhere, any day, and at all times.
Brethren, to be inoculated with the divine nature of light, we must be simple-hearted. The Light nature of God will only gain access to the simple-hearted. The Bible says:
“The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.” – Psalm 119:130
The Light in the Word of God which is the Light in God will never gain entrance to the simple. The Light nature of God gives understanding which makes the life of a believer outstanding. Therefore, humble yourself at His feet and allow the Word of God to gain access to your heart. The Word of God is not an authentic but the authentic.
Friends, those who are too smart or too wise for God will never understanding of the Word and the things of God. Those people will not just lose out of the blessings and benefits of the Light nature of God on the earth; they will also find their place in the kingdom full of darkness (that is the devil’s ultimate destination).
The good news is that as long as we are still alive, we can make a choice to see and receive the Word of God as God. We can still receive the Word of God as the authentic Light.
