1 Peter · Exegesis of Light

influence your world with heavenly ideals!

1 Peter 2:13-17…13 Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme;14 Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well.15 For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:16 As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.17 Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.

I find here the call to shape the public virtues, and principles that govern our society, after the pattern of heavenly ideals. For there will be no wrinkle of contention in our will to obey the admonition here if the governmental and leadership hierarchy of this present world is governed by principles “distilled from Christ”.

I find here reason to command the light to shine in our societal laws and policies. I believe that it is within the power of light to influence- by its warm radiance- the entire climate of the world today; philosophically, morally, intellectually…socio-economically. Selah

I have found out that the first step to harmonizing our influence to touch all spheres of human engagement is to bridge the seeming chasm between physical and spiritual; between faith and reason; between empirical science and the miraculous.

I believe our generation today is gifted with men and women of the spirit who can harmonize these themes and prove that Jesus Christ is truly King and Lord over all…all men! All knowledge! All spheres of engagement! Where are the spiritual thinkers of our age? Let them hear the call and rise up to fulfill the purposes of God for the times. Selah

He says “As free, and not using your liberty for a cloak of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.”…Selah. We learn to use the resources of heaven to command supply to the needs and demands we see in this world today. We are the bringers of the Kings supply…His resources are piped through us to serve the peculiar needs of the times and people. Glory to God!

God is our Helper!

Christ is our Wisdom and ability!

Let us stay the course we have seen in visions of the spirit.

Selah
