Delivered From Darkness to Kingdom Light

12 04 2023


Here are a couple of thoughts today about the nature of Yehovah God contrasted to the empty despair of Satan’s domain. God and Satan are not equal but opposite adversaries. The devil was originally an angel created by God, but he wanted to be God. His selfish ambition brought him down, literally. So, I have two points.

  1.  Satan is not a king; he is a dictator. God is not a dictator; He is a benevolent King!
  2.  God is also light. There is no darkness in Him.

“Giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.”  Colossians 1:12-13

Notice that Satan has authority in the “domain of darkness,” but he does not have a kingdom. The word domain is related to dominion and domination. He rules by fear, force, and intimidation. Our Father God, on the other hand, has delivered us from that domination to the beautiful Kingdom of His beloved Son, Jesus. His is a voluntary Kingdom. He is a servant King. He rules by love and forgiveness and acceptance.

“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.”  James 1:17

You may not have thought about this, but why is there no shadow of turning with God? A shadow is caused by something blocking a light source. However, God Himself is Light. He is the light source! He will never cast a shadow because He is light Himself.

Now go back to the first verse above. He has “qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light.” He has delivered us, from the crushing domination of Satan to the shining Kingdom of His Son. We have moved from darkness to His Light. Hallelujah!

“And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him.They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever.”  Revelation 22:3-5

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and wisdom from above for Prime Minister Netanyahu. Also, pray for rain and thank Him for the late Spring rains the last few days.

Why  do I use God’s literal covenant Name: Yehovah? Here is a link to the explanation in my book: The Hebrew God Who Has No Name. And here is a link to a great visual from my friend Keith Johnson.
