LIGHTS AMONG THE DARKNESS
Draw near to Me and I will draw near to you. Do not fear the darkness, for you are hidden in Christ. The darkness and light are the same to Me. My perfect love casts out all fear. The only fear to have is the fear of the Lord. This is a healthy fear meant to bring discipline into your life. The beginning of wisdom is the fear of the Lord, for those who are wise will purify themselves and make themselves ready for battle.
You are My burning ones, My lights among the darkness, therefore, draw near to Me in full assurance. My scepter has been extended during this age of grace. All who come to the Cross are accepted and seen through the Blood of My Son. You, my true sons and daughters, are the ones to whom I will reveal My hidden treasures and secrets. Together we will overtake darkness.
Psalm 18:9-12 The Passion Translation (TPT)
9–10 He stretched heaven’s curtain open and came to my defense. Swiftly he rode to earth as the stormy sky was lowered. He rode a chariot of thunderclouds amidst thick darkness, a cherub his steed as he swooped down, soaring on the wings of Spirit-wind.
11 Wrapped and hidden in the thick-cloud darkness, his thunder-tabernacle surrounded him. He hid himself in mystery-darkness; the dense rain clouds were his garments.
12 Suddenly the brilliance of his presence broke through with lightning bolts and with a mighty storm from heaven—like a tempest dropping coals of fire.
Psalm 139:11-12 The Passion Translation (TPT)
11 It’s impossible to disappear from you or to ask the darkness to hide me, for your presence is everywhere, bringing light into my night.
12 There is no such thing as darkness with you. The night, to you, is as bright as the day; there’s no difference between the two.
Psalm 97:2 The Passion Translation (TPT)
Clouds both dark and mysterious now surround him. His throne of glory rests upon a foundation of righteousness and justice.
Exodus 20:20-21 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)
20 And Moses said to the people, Fear not; for God has come to prove you, so that the [reverential] fear of Him may be before you, that you may not sin.
21 And the people stood afar off, but Moses drew near to the thick darkness where God was.
Daniel 2:22 Amplified Bible (AMP)
It is He who reveals the profound and hidden things;
He knows what is in the darkness,
And the light dwells with Him.
Isaiah 45:3 Living Bible (TLB)
And I will give you treasures hidden in the darkness, secret riches; and you will know that I am doing this—I, the Lord, the God of Israel, the one who calls you by your name.
