Isaiah 44:3-5 "3For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring, and my blessing on your descendants. 4 They will spring up like grass in a meadow, like poplar trees by flowing streams. 5 Some will say, 'I belong to the Lord'; others will call themselves by the name of Jacob; still others will write on their hand, 'The Lord's,' and will take the name Israel."
I saw a beautiful bright blue white light that moved everywhere He chose to, it was the Holy Spirit carrying the seed of Jesus. He settled in this receptacle that was ball shaped and looked like smooth stone or metal. It was made very substantial with sides that were about one inch thick. The overall size of this ball was about a foot across. It was hollow but it's sides had a design opening all around it like a luminary candle holder. You could easily see the light in it as it shined brightly through the openings. The ball was not made to encapsulate the Holy Spirit but provide a dwelling place for His light in us. The openings spelled out something through the Holy Spirit light shining through it. It is a declaration made by God in each of us shining out onto the walls of our hearts and the walls of the world. It says"The Lord's"!
Hebrews 8:10-12 "10 This is the covenant I will establish with the people of Israel after that time, declares the Lord. I will put my laws in their minds and write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. 11 No longer will they teach their neighbor, or say to one another, 'Know the Lord,' because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest. 12 For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more."
This declaration of the Lord is full of multiple meanings and promises. It not only declares ownership and that we are the Lord's property but that the Lord's dwelling is found here in us, His temple. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 "19Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies." This light shines for the world to see if we will let it. It is our job to make His light known to the lost. To those who are so desperate for God's light to save them and help them find their way to Him. Like a lighthouse that guides ships to safety so is God's light to the lost. For the truth of God is only found in His light of His Word! His light brings truth, deliverance, healing, salvation and clarity of purpose!
This ball is just a void, an empty space for those who are not saved. The world tries to fill this starving void with worldly possessions and fleeting happiness. The void longs for, desires and yearns for the Holy Spirit to come and dwell there. For the void can never be satisfied except by the Holy Spirit that fills it with the seed of Jesus as it was designed to be. The supernatural seed of Jesus that must be watered with the Word of God. This powerful seed that requires daily attention and care to help it manifest the power and authority of heaven that it contains through you. Attention and care of prayer, of being baptized in the Holy Spirit and spending time with the Creator.
How powerful, awesome and wonderful it is to know that God's light in you shines out the declaration "The Lord's". It is God's light in you, to you, for you, with you and through you by His grace that the world sees and wants to know so they can receive His light. So shine it brightly, shine it everywhere you go and never be ashamed to shine it for it is who Christ Jesus is in you and who you are in Christ Jesus!
