John 1:1-4

In the beginning was the Word and the word was with God, and the Word was God, the same was in the beginning with God, All things were made by Him: and without Him was not anything made that was made. In Him was life and the life was the light of men.

Through Jesus Christ the real life of God was made a reality in flesh. Jesus was the Word made flesh. The word “life” in the Greek text is zóé: meaning life, both in the present and future, the life of God. It was by that life that all things were made (Colossians 1:16).

This zóé life was then the only light to mankind. If zóé is the only spiritual light to mankind, then there is only one place a man can be to be in the light and that is in God’s Word. It was the same life that projected onto the seven church age messengers. It is the same life that by them shined forth on you, the very life of God.

Do you really believe it is the same for you today?

You can have the very life of God in you if you stay in the Word for your day, which is the Scripture being made real to you personally. The messenger to each church age pointed the elect of God to the life source, the Word, and it was God that brought them to a greater revelation of who He was, through revelation in His Word. We must lay in the presence of the life source, Christ and His Word.

Stay in the Light Source.

“An Exposition Of The Seven Church Ages” (Chapter 2 - The Patmos Vision)

Denominations which are man directed cannot be born of God; for it is the Spirit, NOT MAN, that gives life. How thrilling it is to think of those seven lamps drawing life and light from the resources of that main bowl because they had their wicks dipped therein. Each church age messenger is depicted here. His life is on fire with the Holy Ghost. His wick (life) has been immersed in Christ. Through that wick he is drawing the very life of Christ, and by it gives out light to the church. What kind of a light is he giving? The very same light that was in the first lamp that was lit. And right on down the ages to the present time of the last day messenger the same life and the same light is manifested by a life that is hid with Christ in God.

Not only can we speak thus of the messengers, but every true believer is dramatically depicted here. They are all drawing from the same source. They have all been dipped into the same bowl. They are dead to themselves and their lives are hid with Christ in God. They are sealed in by the Holy Ghost. Ephesians 4:30, "And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption." No man can pluck them out of His hand. Their lives cannot be tampered with. The visible life is burning and shining, giving light and manifestations of the Holy Ghost. The inner, invisible life is hidden in God and fed by the Lord's Word. Satan cannot touch them. Not even death can touch them, for death has lost its sting; the grave has lost its victory. Thanks be unto God, they have this victory in and through the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen and amen.
