Summary: Does the inside of our lights need changed? I had a dream that our lights in our Sanctuary, the insides were being replaced. What is on the inside of us that needs replaced?

Changing The Lights

Genesis 1:1-3

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.

“In the beginning” is referring to the beginning of creation as it refers to this universe.

God, on the other hand, was unformed, unmade, uncreated, He had no beginning; He always was and He will always be.

The phrase “in the beginning God” explains the first cause of all things as it regards to creation.

Habakkuk 3:3

3 God came from Teman, and the Holy One from mount Paran. Selah. His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of his praise. {Teman: or, the south}

In the Greek, Teman means always been, always existing.

In Habakkuk 3:3, Teman is referring to Sinai, this is referring to God leading the children of Israel out of Egypt through this barren wasteland.

The phrase, “and the Holy one from Mount Paran proper”, is where the law was given.

In Genesis 1:2, “That the Earth was without form, it was void and there was darkness upon the face of the deep”.

The Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

The moving of the Holy Spirit signifies the beginning of life.

Genesis 3:3

3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

In verse 4, it says that God saw the light and He divided the day from the night.

John 1:1-5

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

2 The same was in the beginning with God.

3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. {comprehended: or, did not admit, or, receive}

In the beginning of creation there was already God, and now John is saying in the beginning was the Word, and that the Word was with God and that the Word was God.

We see, in Genesis 1:1, that there was God. In Genesis 1:3, we see the Holy Spirit was there.

And now in John 1:1, we see where Jesus was also in the beginning.

In the beginning God said let there be light, and He divided the day from the night.

Sometimes I ask myself a question, “Why did God divide the night from the day?”

Why didn’t God just make it all light?

The reason I think is this, Satan had already fallen from grace, According to the Jimmy Swaggart Expository Bible, Satan had already fallen.

Satan had already made his choice in what he was going to do.

When God created the world, He knew that man had a choice that they were going to make, were they going to walk in the light or were they going to walk in the dark?

Satan, who is was sneaky and deceiving as any one could ever think about being, used the dark to work his deception on Adam and Eve.

Man had a decision that he was going to make.

God knew that Satan, after his fall, was going to go after man that he created.

The Good news is that we now have a way to get to the Father, and that is through God’s only begotten Son if we believe on Him, of we are obedient to His Word!

James 1:17

17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of Lights.

With the Father of Lights, there is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

There is no shadow when it comes to God.

Jesus Christ came down from above; He became the light of this world that we live in.

What are we doing with our light this morning?

The light that we have is able to penetrate through any dark places in our lives.

Has it ever seemed that we were walking in the dark, has it ever seemed to us that God was not there in our situations?

Call out to Jesus and walk the walk of faith.

John 1:14

14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

The Word became flesh, so when we hear that the Word has been tried and proven to be a winner, you can take it to the bank.
