Giving The Light of GOD
by His Candlesticks in His churches

If by some miraculous way, you knew that you were invited to enter the Kingdom of Heaven to be in that fellowship above, and after you have entered HIS Kingdom, your door of influence to win souls for Christ in the earth is shut forever; would you, before your door of influence is shut continue to live your life in this world of darkness and not allow The Light and Life of Christ to shine through you, to those who walk in darkness and death? Would you not let HIS Light of Life shine through you, as long as possible that men in this kingdom of darkness might glorify The Father in Heaven with you? Would you not make yourself available to The Lord that He might work through you to give Light to every man within your range of influence?

It is to this point of influence that all who believe in Christ must seek to glorify The Father in heaven by removing the barriers that will prevent us from sharing The Gift of Faith in The Light and Life of Christ to those, who are in darkness and death. For John, who was the last living disciple of Christ, who saw the spirit of error creeping in among the believers testified of The Truth of Christ and said, "There was a man sent from God, whose name [was] John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all [men] through him might believe. He was not that Light, but [was sent] to bear witness of that Light. [That] was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

"But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, [even] to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 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" (John 1:6-14).

In his testimony, John has revealed The Key, Who opens The Door to all, who would enter His Kingdom of Light and Life forever. For He was in the world, as The True Light of GOD to all men, but the world knew Him not. Yet all, who would receive Him, as The Gift of GOD to men, they by their faith in GOD, WHO sent Him have received HIS Power in them to become children of His Kingdom of Light and Life.

Being The High Priest of HIS Temple, Which we are, He, The Power of GOD has provided all The Substance and The Treasures of The Wisdom of GOD to the church that we might do The Will of The Father. The Word of The LORD, Who is The Light and Life of men have been in His Temple from the beginning, and have called upon His servant John, to be a messenger to the churches, to set things right by revealing to the churches the things he has seen, and the way things are, and the way things should be after HIS Light has been revealed.


The Seven Churches in HIS Hand

To the shepherd that leads His flock in Ephesus, The Hand of The LORD, Who holds the seven stars and walks among the seven golden candlesticks has revealed that HE knows the condition of the church and says, "I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars: And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.

"Nevertheless I have [somewhat] against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God" (Revelation 2:2-7).

To the shepherd that leads His flock at Smyrna, The Hand of The LORD, Who was dead and is now alive has revealed and said, "I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and [I know] the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but [are] the synagogue of Satan. Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast [some] of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death" (Revelation 2:9-11).

To the shepherd that leads His flock at Pergamos, The Hand of The LORD, Who speaks for both The Father and Himself, has revealed through His servant John, saying, "I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, [even] where Satan's seat [is]: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas [was] my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth. But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.

"So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate. Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth [it]" (Revelation 2:13-17).

To the shepherd that leads His flock at Thyatira, The Son of GOD, having eyes like unto a flame of fire, and feet like fine brass, Who is the Expressed Image of The Father, He has said, "I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last [to be] more than the first. Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.

"Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works. But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.

"But that which ye have [already] hold fast till I come. And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. And I will give him the morning star. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches" (Revelation 2:19-29).

To the shepherd that leads His flock at Sardis, The Hand of The LORD has revealed and said, "...I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God. Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

"Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy. He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches" (Revelation 3:1-6).

To the shepherd that leads His flock at Philadelphia, The Hand of The LORD has revealed and said, "I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

"Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, [which is] new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and [I will write upon him] my new name. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches" (Revelation 3:8-13).

To the shepherd that leads His flock at Laodiceans, The Hand of The LORD has revealed and said, "I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and [that] the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

"As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches" (Revelation 3:15-22).

To every church, The Counsel given to the hearts of men is to have an ear to hear what The Spirit says unto the churches. But because it is not clear in the hearts and minds of men, as to the identity of The Spirit, men through their relying on human wisdom and not The Word of GOD, reason themselves out of alignment against The Truth of GOD and have become blinded to The Truth of Christ.

The very means by which GOD has revealed The Truth to men, they by human wisdom have blinded their minds and have prevented The Truth from taking Root in the heart. For Jesus said, "If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; [Even] the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

"Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. At that day ye shall know that I [am] in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you. He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him" (John 14:15-21).

However, if men do not know, Who The Spirit of Truth is that is abiding in them, then can we say that we are walking in The Light of The Spirit of Truth, while walking in darkness and breaking HIS Law of Love for GOD and man? It for this reason that John testified and said, "He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, [even] to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 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" (John 1:10-14).
