There are different kinds of lights and under each of these lights, things are seen in a certain kind of way. That’s why you might go to a boutique that has blue lighting and purchase what seemed to be a white shirt but, when you step out into the sun, you realized it was a cream or sky blue shirt.
In studying scriptures, it’s the same thing.
Often times, we study according to the ‘lights’ of our favourite preachers, the ‘lights’ of our denominations. But, brothers and sisters, there is a ‘True’ light! His name is Jesus!
He is what to see and how to see in scriptures!
Often, we look into the Word to substantiate our beliefs, instead of allowing God’s Word create them. Many see different things in the Word, but, God calls us to see one person; Jesus!
John 5:13, ‘Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.‘ The Scriptures reveal Christ. The Spirit of God helps us to see Christ in the Word – John 15:26. Oh, how important this is! And when we see Jesus in the Word, all factions will cease! Oh, how I long for the unity of the Faith! Furthermore, we mustn’t jettison the ministry of the Spirit in guiding us into all truth.
Truth isn’t a ‘theological’ concept, it’s an experience. He brings us into fellowship with God; a literal rendezvous! When you look to Jesus through the Spirit, walking in love, you couldn’t go wrong. Trust the Spirit, he is God’s appointed custodian of truth -1 John 2:27. God bless you! #Pleroma
