Announcement: Theme for the June 2020 Holy Ghost Service is Let There Be Light 6.
The light that comes from God is a pure, white light with no shadow of turning. Acts 22:6, Acts 9:1-7
The light that comes directly from God is pure white light. God's light is far brighter than the noon daylight. The crucial thing about the light that comes from God is the purity. Let there be light means let there be purity.
Let there be light could mean several things:
1. Pure healing. Pure healing means total healing without any sign or remnants of a prior illness. Mark 8:22-25, John 9:1-7
Decree: Those of you who might be sick in any way, before this program is over, may the Almighty God give you pure healing.
Pure healing could require a second touch or a recreation. Romans 4:19. Sarah got a brand new womb.
Decree: Even if the doctors have condemned your womb, in the Name that is above every other name, you will get a brand new one today.
Lazarus was resurrected and healed of the illness that killed him in the first place. John 11:39-45. 2 Kings 5:1-14 Naaman's healing got him the fine skin of a baby. Pure healing is a healing that doesn't leave a scar behind.
2. Let There be Light could mean: Pure life.
It could mean life; a life full of vitality and vigour. Moses, Abraham and Caleb were all still full of vitality and vigour in their old age. Deuteronomy 34:7, Genesis 25:1 & Joshua 14:6-13. God made a promise to you and me that the older we grow, the stronger we should become. Deuteronomy 33:25. I encourage you all; stop managing to live. Demand vigour and vitality from the Almighty God. John 10:10
3. Let There Be Light could mean: Pure wealth.
There is a link between pure light and pure wealth. All the great treasures in this world are hidden underneath; to get them, you need light. Isaiah 45:3. Pure wealth here means having more than sufficient. 2 Kings 4:8-17
Prayer: I pray in the Name above every other names, very soon, you'll be able to lift your head and say, I have more than enough. 2 Kings 4:1-7. The widow got enough to pay off her debts and to take care of herself and her sons for life. That is pure wealth. Genesis 33:1-9 Esau was so rich he had 400 bodyguards.
Prayer: In the mighty name of Jesus Christ, every trace of poverty in your life will come to an end.
God described the prosperity of Isaac as having a store of servants. Genesis 26:12-14
4. Let There Be Light becould mean: Pure joy.
There is a link between light and joy. Esther 8:15-16, Psalm 30:5. Joy is associated with light and weeping is associated with darkness
Joy is in categories:
1. Joy 1 Chronicles 29:9
2. Great Joy. 1 Chronicles 29:9
3. Exceeding Great Joy. Matthew 2:1-11
4. Joy so great and full of glory. 1 Peter 1:3-8
Prayer: I pray for you that exceeding great joy will be your portion in Jesus' name.
Prophecy: The Lord asked me to tell someone who is listening, that during this darkness, your star will begin to rise.
5. Let There Be Light could mean: Pure peace.
There is a link between light and peace. Isaiah 45:7.
Peace can be in categories:
2. Great Peace. Psalm 119:65
3. All round peace. 1 Kings 4:24
4. Peace like a river. Isaiah 48:18
5. The purest is peace that passeth all understanding. Philippians 4:7
Decree:The Almighty God will speak to those of you in a storm in Jesus' name.
Prayer: I pray for you, pure peace will be your portion from now on in the mighty name of Jesus.
6. Let There Be Light could also mean: Pure success which is also excellence. There is a link between light and excellence. Daniel 5:13-14
Prophesy: Daddy asked me to tell someone; in the evening of this lockdown, your day will start.
Three things were found in Daniel: Light, understanding and excellence. Daniel 6:1-3
Prayer: I pray for every traditional rulers in this nation, their glorious days will come back again.
The wisdom of Solomon was greater than any other. 1 Kings 4:30
Jesus is above all in wisdom and excellence. Psalm 8:9 & Philippians 2:9-11
Daniel and the 3 Hebrew boys were found to be the wisest among men. Daniel 1:3-21
Among the 4 of them, Daniel was found to be the wisest; he excelled. Daniel 2:16-23
When God shines His light on you, you begin to excel.
Prophesy: There's someone listening to me, whose hunger and thirst since this problem started is “how I wish I had the gift of healings”. Daddy asked me to tell you your wish has been granted.
7. The Beauty of Purity:
Pure light is white in colour; like the light coming from a welder's soldering.
If you pass pure light through a glass prism, it breaks up into seven colours of the rainbow:
Each colour stands for something significant.
All colours are the same when there is no light; no colour can be seen other than black.
It takes light to bring out beauty and there is beauty in every person. 2 Corinthians 4:7
Inside you, there is treasure and until the light shines on you, your beauty will remain hidden.
David was a great musician but he was only singing to animals until light came into his household and his beauty came out. 1 Samuel 16:11-End.
Light shone and the ordinary beautiful girl became the beautiful Queen. Esther 2:8-17
The Lord said use this period to draw close to Me and I will soon show you how to be unstoppable. Light shone and the prisoner became the Prime Minister of Egypt. Genesis 41:1-44; 39:1-6, 20-23.
Prayer: I pray for you, before this crisis is over, those who can help you will remember you.
Light exposes the beauty within.
All these beautiful things that come from the purity of light are only available to those who are pure in heart and have clean hands. Matthew 5:8, Psalm 24:3-4.
The first colour that the light gives out when it passes through the prism is red; the colour of the Blood of Jesus.
Altar Call: To give your life to Jesus, go on your knees and cry to God to save your soul. Tell Him that you're surrendering your life to Him, ask Him to wash you clean with His blood and accept you into His family.
