TOPIC: SONSHIP, THE PATHWAY TO REST
TEXT: Acts 2:18 (NIV)
Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy
The greek word for “prophecy” in the text above is “propheteuo” which means to foretell the future events, divine, speak under inspiration, and to exercise the prophetic office. When we talk about the prophetic, it can connote any of the above. In the Old Testament, the prophetic is majorly used with reference to the prophets when exercising the prophetic office and mostly limited to speaking about future events. They also make clear the mind of God on matters in times of confusion which is divine guidance, either by direct consultation or divine errand as a messenger and God’s spokes man. That is why they are also referred to as seer which means someone who sees (when others are blind! Added).This office is seriously needed in the Old Testament because they were all blind but has a different role in the New Testament.
Thank God Christ has brought us to light. He is the light of the world; whoever follows him will never walk in darkness but have the light of life (John 12:46, 8:12). Are you in Christ and still in darkness? Confused about the kingdom, life, world, paucity of idea, stranded, oppressed etc you are out of that darkness today in Jesus name! You cannot be in Christ and be in darkness waiting for a seer who sees for you! That is very wrong and a shame to the work of redemption. Here is the claim of the master about the abundance he has secured for you
”When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
The greatest definition of the Kingdom is the kingdom of light.
“and always thankful to the Father who has made us fit to share all the wonderful things that belong to those who live in the Kingdom of light” Col 1:12 TLB.
It is the nature of God in us. He delivered us from the Kingdom of confusion, shady deeds and translated us into Kingdom of transparency, sincerity, honesty, truthfulness, glory! All are description of light in us. Do you believe the word of Christ? To all who believed HIM he has given the power to become HIM. You will only become what you believe. Put an end to all darkness as you rise in faith from that crumbled position and join the moving train of the builders of the Kingdom.
Father, I confess that I am light and not darkness, so I turn on the light of the Spirit to flood all of me right now and walk in the newness of life in Jesus name.
