“Light and faith work the same way”.
Then the Spirit reminded me of what Jesus said about a mustard seed of faith.
Luke 17:6 (NKJV)
6 So the Lord said, “If you have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.
And then an illustration of how a tiny little light will breakthrough an entire room of darkness and the darkness cannot overcome it or stop it.
“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.” (John 1:5, NLT)
I’ll give one more. When Jesus was explaining faith to the disciples, He gave this instruction; Clear and to the point. You would have to have help to misunderstand what Jesus is saying.
Mark 11:22-24 (NKJV)
22 So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in GOD.“
23 “For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.”
24 Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
Verse 23 is NOT a prayer… it’s Jesus teaching the disciples how to use a “Command of Faith” that absolutely will work. So then in verse 24 Jesus is saying “Therefore” (since this is how GOD made Faith and the world work) it will certainly work when you apply it to prayer. Understanding Jesus started this off saying “Have Faith in GOD” understand you must believe that it’s GOD our Father that made things work this way. You yourself have nothing to do with it other than to believe it, not doubt (GOD) and speak it in prayer believing. Jesus and later the apostles used both methods of faith in certain situations; sometimes praying; other times just commanding something without prayer. But understand either way it is still GOD that is making this all work because it’s how He made the world in the beginning.
Therefore it is not a question as to whether the mountain will move but that it has no choice but to move, it must move, it cannot resist or overcome the seed of faith, it’s that powerful! When operated in faith not doubting, that’s the hard part. Believing is easy for someone who knows The LORD and the Bible. It’s doubting it will work “FOR YOU” that’s hard to get rid of.
Then the Spirit revealed to me that light was created first as an object lesson of something that can be “seen” to show how that something that cannot be seen works – faith! Hence Jesus teaching teaching the disciples how faith works as is shown above. So then we have this further revelation.
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.” (Hebrews 11:1–3, NKJV)
This all started when I looked down at my logos bible program on my Mac this morning and read
“in the beginning… God… created light… God said light be, and light and light was” Gen. 1:1a,3 literal Hebrew
Now we know by quantum physics that light particles (and waves) at it’s most basic element is the substance of all creation at the quantum level which is a reality that we cannot see into, nevertheless is reality. It is energy (light) that constructs all things.
Therefore when we operate within the understanding of this system of God’s created order, nothing is impossible. Using this principle it is not a question as to whether something will happen but the fact that it must happen! Praise God!
I personally have never heard this explained this way…
