THE LIGHT OF LIFE!
BY: DAVID JOHNSON
The eyes of My people are moving too and fro throughout the land seeking the things of this world and focusing on obtaining things and keeping up with the Jones. But those that I have selected to be the first fruits of this new age will learn to focus their eyes on Me.
In the natural it is imperative to focus your eyes in order for them to become one and when this happens you get depth perception. Even so, it is true in the spiritual. If you will learn to focus your eyes on Me, you will have depth perception beyond your wildest expectations. Even as I told my servant, Joshua, you must not look to the left or to the right, but stay focused on Me.
I have said in My written Word that I am the light of the world and I have also said in My written Word that you are the light of the world. I said in Matt. 6:22-23, “The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!
In Gen. 1:3 on the first day of creation I said, ” Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.”
However, it wasn’t until the fourth day that I made the sun and the moon. Where did this light come from on the first day? Me! Even as the rays of the sun goes fourth from it’s innermost being, so goes My Spirit fourth from My innermost being. I use this terminology in order for you to understand because I am Spirit. My spirit is unlimited power that flows from me like a river and is activated by My spoken Word. My Spirit watches over my word to perform it.
In the beginning of things I created man in My image and likeness and within him I placed the creative ability that I have. This creative ability lies within his soul, which came into being when I breathed on his flesh and he became a living soul.
Adam was the jewel of all that I have created because I placed Myself within him. As he drew from his spirit that was one with Me since it came out of me, or from me; nothing was impossible for him. Absolutely nothing. The eyes of his soul were focused upon me when he named the animals. He didn’t have to use any effort to determine what name was appropriate for each animal. My knowledge flowed through him like a river. His knowledge was unlimited because he was one with Me. Both his image and His likeness.
It was like this until the day iniquity was found in him when he begin to think that he could be as I am if he partook of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. It was this thinking that caused him to develop a mistaken identity. His image changed from My image to his image. He was in this world as I am until this happened. As a result all that came out of him were separated from the life of the fullness of My Spirit. It was my plan before I began to create this world that I would become one of them and give my life to redeem them.
There is within everyone that walks the face of this earth today My seed which I place within Adam. This seed is likened to the egg that I placed within every woman that must be fertilized by the sperm of a man. When this sperm of man penetrates the egg within the woman there is what you would call a chemical reaction and cells begin to divide and form and life is begotten.
In like manner, this seed that I placed within everyone can only be penetrated and fertilized by My Word, which is My sperm. When My Word is received in the egg of the soul of man, his mind, he is begotten of God. When this happens there is a spiritual reaction that takes place and growth begins and as My Word is focused on and meditated upon daily, there will came in due time the birth of a Son. Even as My Son Jesus grew and waxed strong in spirit and was filled with wisdom and My grace was upon him, so shall it be with all who are born of My Spirit.
This is why I told you in Matt. 6: 33, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
If you are to be among the overcomers of Rev. 12, you must learn to focus your attention first of all on My Word. It was said of Jesus in John 1:1, “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 any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.”
This simply means that your focal point must always be on Me. This is the key to the river of life that flows from the throne of God that is within all my Sons. If you remember, I said in John 7:38, “He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)”
This river of living water is the unlimited power and wisdom of My Spirit that I have given to all of My Sons. The reason this awesome display of My Spirit has not been seen in the lives of My people is because their minds have been muddied by their mistaken identity and the doctrines of men who have not walked by the power of My Spirit but have looked to the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, (their own understanding).
This is why I say that the overcomers must learn to look not at their own understanding but learn to focus upon Me and draw from the river of life that is within them. Your soul is made up of your mind, your will and your emotions. Your mind must become one with My mind and your will become one with My will and your emotions become one with My emotions. When this happens, your soul will be one with your spirit, which is one with My spirit.
This will result in the peace, joy and flow of My spirit to your subconscious mind. I placed in your subconscious mind the ability to create. This ability is controlled by your conscious mind, therefore, if you fill your thinking with the negative thoughts of the world your creative subconscious mind will attempt to bring it to pass. This is why I said in Matt. 12:34, “O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the Day of Judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
I told Paul to say in Phil 4:8-9, (NIV) “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.”
As I said long ago through My prophet Isaiah in Isaiah 55:9, “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
I have many things to reveal to My Sons, which they cannot possibly understand in the natural. However, as they continue to focus on My Word the eyes of their understanding will be enlightened and they will be able to comprehend the things of My Spirit that they are seeing and will be given knowledge of how to express these things in the natural.
When I breathed Adam into the body that I had formed for him out of the dust of the earth, he became a living soul. For the first time his spirit had a body with which to express himself in the natural earthly realm. Adam, before this time, was with me and came forth out of me. Now, for the first time, he had a soul, which had the possibility of becoming independent of My will, My way of thinking and My emotions. At this time Adam’s soul, (his mind, will, and emotions) were one with Mine. He was god incarnated in man. This is why he was the first Adam. He was the first god, incarnated man. I created him in My image and My likeness.
However, he began to entertain thoughts of another image, which was his image separate and equal to Mine. (Isaiah 14:13-14) This resulted in his disobedience to me by his partaking of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. I had told him that the day that he partook of that tree, he would surly die. Two things occurred when he disobeyed me.
First, he died to me. His spirit was separated from the flow of the eternal Zoe life of My Spirit, which had been one with his spirit and his soul. No longer was he able to communicate with me spiritually, spirit to Spirit. I could only communicate with him in the natural because he was without spiritual understanding, which only comes through the indwelling of My Spirit. This separation cause him to have to rely upon the power of his will to sustain himself, and this caused his second problem. His body no longer was in contact with the eternal life flow of My Spirit and as a result he begin die physically. Not only did he begin to die physically, but his seed could only produce after it’s own kind and that was now a corrupted seed. So mankind was separated from their God. All of this happened because it was according to My will which I had determined before the foundation of the world. (1 Peter 1:18-20)
Adam now was a slave to his own mistaken identity. His desire was to become a god unto himself and now that is what he has become. He is still in the likeness of Me but he is no longer in My image but is in his own image. As a result he considers himself to be only human. He writes songs saying that he is only human and to please himself he hides behind this lie. The truth of the matter is this. He still is My offspring but has cut himself off from the flow of My eternal Spirit and no longer has the ability to reconnect himself. He tries everything that his carnal mind can perceive to reconnect again to Me. He thought that if I would just give him a set pattern of laws he could use his will power to obey them and open communications with My Spirit again.
However, the very laws I gave to him only put him in a more depraved situation because it caused sin, or rebellion, to rise up from within his carnal mind. When I died on the cross I paid the price to redeem man from this hopeless situation that the first Adam had subjected them to. Now, when a man hears the good news of the Kingdom of God and what I have done for him and believes or accepts this in his heart and confesses with his mouth that I am the Christ, he is reconnected to the eternal life flow of My Spirit.
This is what I was talking about when I told Nicodemus in John 3:3 that he must be born again. This birth or begattal takes place when I send My Word, which is My Sperm, to impregnate him with My life.
My people today, even though they have been born again and many have even gone so far as to ask Me for the baptism of My Spirit, are still living in the image of Adam and not My image. This is a mistaken identity and with such they will never be able to be the overcomers of Rev. 12. As long as My people continue to attempt to clean up Adam and save him they will never mature to sonship. As long as they hold on to their image and refuse to listen to My Word, which tells them that they are sons of the Most High God, they will never come into maturity.
However, I now have a people that I have hand picked who have their eyes focused on Me and even now are receiving instructions concerning the dawning of this new age that is coming upon all of mankind. I have people stationed in every walk of life that are receiving knowledge that has been hidden from the foundation of this world. The creativity of My mind is being released to My people and there is no limit to what can be achieve by those who look to Me for understanding.
