OPEN UP, TINY LIGHT!   8/31/09

Today I was pondering a vision about a man who saw a soul with zero light within him come to the gates of heaven.  Because his life was filled with darkness, that very darkness was repelled at God’s light.  The person had no light in him and therefore was automatically thrown back from the gate of heaven.  At the same time hell opened up and immediately swallowed him. 


As I thought about it, I remembered that God put a dividing line and separated light from darkness and light dispels darkness causing darkness to flee. 


Gen 1:4  NKJV

And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness.


1 Thess 5:5 NKJV

You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.


John 8:12 NKJV

Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, "I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life." 


1 John 1:5-6 NKJV

This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.


I saw a similar principle working in those who have just a tiny little light within them.  I have found that when trying to minister to someone with just a tiny amount of light in them, that the darkness within them keeps them from receiving a large volume of light in the form of revelations and truth.  The very darkness within them repels  the truth.  The capacity to receive spiritual truths remains within their own willingness, mindsets and light they have allowed. 


I have heard several testimonies of those who have gone to heaven and come back saying that while we are on earth, we each get as close to God as we want.  And once we die, we are very satisfied with our places in heaven, because it matches our limits and capacities for Him that we developed on earth. 


I have pondered this principle many times and I believe that our time on earth is spent with Jesus knocking on our doors.  He is constantly asking for more of us, and if we open ourselves up to His knock about a specific truth, then He moves on to knock in another place.  I have seen that when we ignore His knock, that He continues to knock on that place until He knows we are truly convinced and set that we do not want Him to knock in that place ever again.  And then He will no longer knock in that place.  There are some places in our lives that are pivoting points where He can not take us any farther in our walk with Him until He has specific doors opened in our hearts.  With some people, He may spend their whole lives with Him knocking on the same door, only for them to say no.  If the person has someone praying for them, the Lord will continue to knock until their very last breath. 


Mark 4:24-25 NKJV

Take heed what you hear. With the same measure you use, it will be measured to you; and to you who hear, more will be given.  For whoever has, to him more will be given; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him.


1 Cor 2:11-3:3   NKJV

For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. 13 These things we also speak, not in words which man's wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15 But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. 16 For "who has known the mind of the LORD that he may instruct Him?" But we have the mind of Christ... (continued to the next verse)  And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ. 2 I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; 3 for you are still carnal. 







“...This time He showed me a group of His own people upon whom He has poured His love but who seemed to show very little development.  Although they were not those who had grown and developed in Him, yet they were not infants either.  I saw that He was with them but they hardly knew it.


It seemed that He had covered His parts so that He would not be visible to them.  Almost all of His visible parts He had covered entirely so that His glory was not shining through.  Never the less I saw that He had left open one tiny hole in all of His coverings by which He covered Himself.  And, through this tiny opening a few rays of His glory were visible so that they could see Him and know in a measure Who He was.


Through this small bit of revelation that was given to them, they were required to develop and grow.  At that time they were not able ot receive any more of His light and glory for they were too small in their growth and it would have harmed them.  So, He had covered Himself from them, not in anger but in love.  Yet, He had given them sufficient light in which to develop and grow. 


As they utilized the small revelation and light that came to them and developed their capacities and abilities to receive more, then He could open wider His coverings and make greater His revelation and thus He could eventually bring them into a fullness of the revelation and knowledge of Himself.”


{end excerpt of Annie’s Vision}







“...He took me away to another place where there were some of His people who were not very far advanced in Him.  Very small in their growth and very underdeveloped, these smaller sons of light were praying and asking Him for all sorts of things.  But they did not know Him very well at all.  In fact, they did not know Him well enough to know how to ask for that which they were requesting.  Although they were His own ones and His love was upon them, yet their knowledge of Him was very limited.


I saw Him pour out His blessing upon them but He did not pour them out as He did upon others of His own.  It seemed that He poured out His blessing in small drops as it were because they could not receive any more at a time.  Being too underdeveloped to be able to receive any more of His blessings than what He carefully measured out to them in drops.


He did what He could for them in order that they might grow and develop, desiring to prepare them so that they would be able to come to know Him in truth and receive more of Him.”

Temper the flow 11/11/07

PIPE PARABLE: A couple years ago I had a rude awakening when I went out to get our mail. The entire street was flooded. Water was backed up for several streets and people were not allowed to drive to their homes, but had to park several blocks away as the water was going up the driveways.

As it turned out, when my husband put in the culvert through the subdivision, it was a large one to code and it handled all the rain drainage from the neighborhood. However since that time there were 3 houses down from us that were not a part of the subdivision, and at different times they had independently connected themselves to the pipe. The first house put in a slightly smaller pipe, and then the one next to it connected with an even smaller one. The last house put in a 6 inch pipe and all of the watershed from the neighborhood was trying to get through!

Evidently when they put it in, besides not doing it according to code, they also drove on the ground on top of it and crushed the pipe beneath. When the maintenance crew came, they found the problem and ripped the whole thing out of their back yard and finally everyone's water receded.



Last night I was thinking about that man’s vision of seeing the person with no light within him bouncing off heaven’s doors into hell. 


2 Cor 4:6  NKJV

For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness , who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.


Today this post came out on the QW elist, from having been reserved on inJesus since April:




HEARD:  Courage.


Dear Lord,

In this great darkness, we need courage and hope to face our future.  As we look at the days spread out before us, we cannot see past the boundaries of the light we have in ourselves.  Yes, we each have Your light within us - but the degree we live in Your light, is the same degree that our light shines on the path before us.  Grant that we will live and walk in Your light in ever increasing portions so that we may have hope to see our future.  In Jesus Name. 


1 Peter 2:9  NKJV

His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.


Eph 5:8-13 NKJV

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light  (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.  For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light.


CONFIRMATION:  I picked up our grandson to spend the day with us, and I noticed he had on his first pair of tennis shoes.  He has always worn those soft moccasin shoes to learn to walk, and this was his first pair of stiff shoes.  I didn’t know they held a precious secret!   I noticed he was leaning way over in his car seat and took off one shoe.  “Light!  Light!  Light”  He was pointing to his shoe and low and behold he had 2 lights on each shoe!  Today, when he walked down the hallway he was running and pounding his feet really hard, saying, “Light, light, light!”  Thank You Lord for such a wonderful revelation and precious confirmation.
