Shadows are powerful. Shadows are images that are cast from light blocked by the source, from the reality. The only way shadows are seen is if light is cast on the source or reality. So focus on the shadow is only temporarily seen as the reality comes into view. Shadows point to the reality.
This is where we begin our New Edition. Let there be shadows. For if there are shadows, light is shining on the reality.
Let There Be
Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. (Genesis 1:3 NASB)
The spoken word of God is unlike anything we can fathom. The phrase “let there be” is more powerful than anything. God wants to allow, in a location, a state of being.
Three sentences into Genesis, we have a shadow. The shadow is a state of being in a location allowed by God. My take on this is that there must be a reality today that is an expression of a person, in a location, allowed by God.
Who is this reality? This reality is Christ!
By referring to this, when you read you can understand my insight into the mystery of Christ, which in other generations was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed to His holy apostles and prophets in the Spirit; to be specific, that the Gentiles are fellow heirs and fellow members of the body, and fellow partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel of which I was made a minister, according to the gift of God’s grace which was given to me according to the working of His power. (Ephesians 3:4-7 NASB)
Paul is talking about some POWER! He is talking about the Body of Christ Who consists of fellow heirs and fellow members and fellow partakers. We are in a fellow-ship!
The shadow of Christ is cast from the very Word of God, “Let there be…” As we see the separation of light from darkness, the Word that shines on this act provides a shadow of separation of darkness and light. Evening and morning. Christ’s resurrection to new Life is the reality.
Let’s not wait for the sun to come. Let’s be in Him now. We are heirs! We are members! We are partakers!
Let there be…
May we allow God to have His expression in our location…us.
God saw that the light was good; (Genesis 1:4a NASB)
Yes He is.
