AS A LIGHT (Oil Lamp)
OIL LAMP: Get’s its fuel from the oil
OIL used to anoint. Psalm 23:5
Thou anointest my head with oil, my cup runneth over.
Jesus in the temple Luke 4:16-21
Isaiah 61:1 Anointed to preach
If we are in Christ and Christ is in us, then as HE was anointed, so are we, in HIM.
Anointing causes a visible change
A new song, praise. Many will see it, fear and trust
7-8 Written of me
God’s word is written of Christ and if we be in Christ, and Christ is in us as Paul states in Colossians, it is written of us.
40:9 I can’t stop telling other of Christ.
Don’t quench the Spirit.
40:10 I MUST SPEAK, declare
Isaiah 41:18 It is a River of Life Flowing
Ezekiel speaks of the “Showers of Blessing”
The Conowingo Dam – Does not stop the water from flowing, rather harnesses the power and produces electric, which ultimately electric is used for light.
Let it flow
It flows from Heaven
SOURCE – we know the River’s source
It comes from Heaven Rev 22:1-3
Let the River Flow
Matthew 5:14-16 14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Symbolically, the river flows through us, and produces that light within. Let it shine.
