|2 Peter 1:19|
19 Also [like we heard God's voice from heaven on the mount] we have the steady prophetic word [the word in your heart]; to which you do well to pay attention, as to a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star [Jesus] rises in your hearts;4 [As the lightning comes out of the east, and shines to the west; so also will the coming of the Son of man be. Mat 24:27. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright morning star. Rev 22:16. He who overcomes, ..I will give him the morning star. Rev 2:26-28. From the Word of the Lord within: "Light comes from faith in the voice. My word is in your heart and mouth. Listen well to my words; attend to them. And to those who obey, he will appear like a magnificent star in your heart. The arising of the light will be unmistakable; it is an ego-shattering experience."]
2 But to you who fear my name, the Sun of righteousness shall arise with healing in his wings, and you shall go forth and leap and skip like calves released from the stall.
14 Therefore he said, "Awake you who sleep, and arise from the dead, and Christ will give you light." [The meaning of dead is: when Adam disobeyed God in the garden, he lost the life of God and was cut off from the tree of life; thus he and all his descendants passed from life (of God) to death in the life of God. So we are dead until we are restored to the Spiritual image of God in all righteousness and holiness, which only occurs in those who have crucified the selfish, sinful spirit within them, which is then replaced by the Spirit of Christ, who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. With Christ in us, controlling our words and deeds, we have the Life of God; but not until then. So, Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light. For in him is the Life, and the Life is the light of men; the true light that enlightens all men who come into the world. John 1:4,9.]
|Revelation 22:16 |
16 "I, Jesus, have sent my angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright morning star.2 [From the Word of the Lord within: "Light comes from faith in the voice. My word is in your heart and mouth. Listen well to my words; attend to them. And to those who obey, he will appear like a magnificent star in your heart. The arising of the light will be unmistakable."]
