Light Has No Shadow

Think about it!

If we are existing only in the physical and material world, walking in the flesh, then we will cast a shadow on others.

But, if we have transcended to the spiritual, and walk in the Spirit of God, we will not cast a shadow, ….

Instead, we will inspire others.

This is an ideal concept.

While we are in the physical body, we are bound to some extent by its needs.

We need to eat and sleep, for example.

But there is moderation and excess.

When we are moderate, and align ourselves with God’s will and Word, then we are a light to others.

When we fall into excess, then we over burden ourselves WITH ourselves, not focusing on the Word and presence of God, then we further burden others with our own burdens.

If we let our emotions rule, rather than allowing the Spirit to rule our emotions, then we force these emotions on others, and weight them down with our “self.” Now, they have to deal with our emotions as well.

If we walk in the Spirit, then we share our yoke with the Lord, who considers it no weight at all, so our burden is light, then the burden is not imposed on others.

Anger, appetite, lust, jealousy, fear, unbelief, worry, greed, etc. are burdens.

These burdens of the flesh are shadows on the spirit of others.

It is a challenge to stay in the physical world, and still be in balance with the spiritual world.

Fasting, prayer, bible reading – all help us to focus more on the spiritual.

In time, we will feel lighter, without burdens so heavy, and we will be able to share our light with others.

This is a personal journey for all of us.

May God give us strength to do this.

  2. There is no darkness in light.

  3. Oh wow yes, so very accurate. Thanks for enlightening me Marianne. Be blessed for your good work you do to encourage others. Alecia

  4. Hi Marianne and all,

    i have a questrion regarding to the feet of iron and clay, the statue in the book of daniel,

    feet of iron – kingdom of restored roman empire and
    clay — islamic countries – very last empire could be Islamic connection
    10 horns 10 kings – ?

    roman catholicism is religious babylon system (papal rome)
    pope is the The false prophet

    what is your thoughts on this?

    thanks

  5. When we enter a dark room, we can overcome that darkness with light, turn on the light switch, so to speak. But darkness cannot extinguish light. There is no “dark” switch.

  6. All of what you have said is true. The difficulty is in actually doing it. It is a daily challenge and a daily struggle. Some days are easy, other days not so easy. Stinging words, thoughtlessness, selfishness, defensiveness, anger, rudeness are all tough things to deal with and when that gut reaction kicks in to snipe right back, it is hard to control it. I read the words of Jesus and it helps. The more cloistered I become the less I am faced with all that negativity but I’m not a hermit or a loner. I have to face people every day. So, it continues to be a challenge to live in the light. Easy to do if I close myself off, not so easy in the day to day living.

  7. Some say there is no such thing as “darkness” – they say there is light and there is the absence of light. That’s it. One can not confront darkness because it does not exist. When we are fighting “darkness” we are fighting the absence of light.

    (Though physicists are chasing “dark matter / energy” as it does exist, but when found, it swallows up anything around it.)

    I think the beginning of this point has it’s truth, but not to the degree I have read others, in other areas of the Internet, to believe to such a conclusion. As a retired police officer – I fought darkness, evil, more than once. Darkness is real, palpable, and it can take a hold of you if not vigilant.

    There was an old program, originally created in novels from the 1930’s morphing into a comic strip and radio program in the 40’s and 50’s, with the tag, “Who knows what evil lurks in the heart of men? The Shadow knows.” I think they gave shadows, or The Shadow, too much credit.

    If darkness is the absence of light, then, what is light? If God is light, is evil the absence of God? Perhaps, within a person’s own heart.

    God is never absent from us. God is always present. God may have created day and night, but His light is ever present if we choose to seek, and never stop seeking, His light, His grace, His mercy.

  9. THIS IS GOING VIRAL

    We are not obligated to the lie of sin and death . . . we are not obligated to the potential of SIN OR THE POTENTIAL OF DEATH’S GRIP!
    Christ’s suffering, death and burial has accomplished all
    ‘IT IS FINISHED” Jesus said.
    Jesus has conquered sin and death’s grip.

    YES, THE TRUTH IS THAT SIN IS DARKNESS . . . AND TRUE SIN IS NOT BEING IN THE LIGHT.
    LET CHRIST LIVE IN YOU AND YOU ARE FULL OF THE LIGHT! NO SIN.
    DEATH IS DARKNESS AND WITHOUT THE LIGHT. . .WITHOUT THE LIFE. . .
    JESUS SAYS “I AM THE LIFE” AND IN THE LIFE (Jesus)
    THERE IS NO DARKNESS! NO DEATH . . . ONLY ETERNAL LIFE.

    LET JESUS LIVE IN YOU. JESUS IS YOUR LIGHT. JESUS IS YOUR LIFE.

    The miracle happens when you SEE THAT GOD IS YOUR ACTUAL LIFE,
    when you see,
    YOU’LL SEE GOD IS LOVE. . .YOUR LOVE.

    Jesus said “no man is good except God”. . .so if you are not good what kind of love do you have? Having God’s Love is Perfect Love.

    (THAT’S IT. . . GOD’S LOVE . . .NOT YOUR OWN)

    (WHEN PETER WAS ASKED BY JESUS “PETER DO YOU LOVE ME”, PETER ACTUALLY SAID. . .Lord it is not my love, but it is your love Lord!” Jesus said, “then go feed my sheep”. ESSENTIALLY MEANING . . . “GO TELL ALL CREATION THAT MY LIFE AND LOVE LIVES IN (ALL OF) YOU! BELIEVE, THAT IS . . . BE ALIVE IN ME! ME IN YOU!”

    God says all of man has stolen from God. God says all is Mine !
    NO WONDER NO ONE (for over 2000 years) HAVE ACHIEVED THE FULLNESS OF GOD’S PROMISES . . .
    Some might say . . . they have the life and love of God !
    IT IS NOT OUR OWN!
    ( can’t you see they are stealing from God! ).

    THEY NEED TO DECLARE GOD IS MY LIFE, GOD IS MY LOVE. IT’S ALL YOU MY GOD.

    EVEN WHEN JOB SAW THIS, GOD BLESSED HIM EVEN MORE THEN HE DID BEFORE. “I NOW SEE YOU.”

    THIS IS NOT A TECHNICALITY THIS IS THE TRUTH.

    IF WE CAN UNDERSTAND THAT IT IS GOD WHO IS ALL AND ALL . . .

    THAT GOD IS MY LIVE AND THAT GOD IS MY LOVE . . .

    THEN NO DARKNESS CAN ENTER IN. . . NO FLESH, NO DEMON . . .NO SELF!

    Jesus kept declaring a Oneness with the Father.
    That is what we need to do.
    Have oneness with our God.

    HOW
    Jesus said, “if you love Me ,I and My Father will make our abode in you.”
    Jesus said, “apart from Me you can do nothing, but in Me you can do all things . . .and even greater things!”

    (Now isn’t that the reason everyone is still in darkness, sin, death, the flesh, and the devil made me do it!!!. . .because they are only living themselves) . . . still going to die! WE ALL NEED THE LIFE!

    Know we have a good good Father and we are Loved by Him. When we believe in God we become alive in God !

    SO how do we believe?
    The original meaning of “to believe” according to God is to be a new born babe who naturally knows how to thrive by and in total trust.
    No one has to teach the new born baby, it is innate . . . by God.

    The Truth IS we have to have our eyes, our heart open to see the truth, to see we are His. . .HIS Life/ HIS Love, well taken care of.
    God’s original “Thought” . . .of us, for us!

    SEE GOD IS YOUR LIFE, (without God, without God’s thought of you, you don’t exist!-

    He thought of us. He gave us our name, He breathed His Life into us, He gave us His heart beat. We are fearfully and wonderfully made, in His Image by His very hands.

    (HOW COME WE ACT SO ALONE!)
    (AWAITING FOR HIS RETURN when He is already in us? )

    The greatest thought you can ever have . . .is God’s very thought of you!
    “OH GOD, YOU ARE MY LIFE. . .OH GOD, YOU ARE MY LOVE!
    GOD CALLS THAT EVERLASTING LIFE !

    PURE LIGHT. . .FREE ENERGY. . .PERMANENT AND FOREVER!

    you see. . .it is nothing of ourselves. . .it is all of God and about God.
    SIMPLE TRUST

    That is why . . .it is not what you do . . .or not up to what you don’t do !
    THE TRUTH IS. . .GOD ALONE!

    What power, principality, what death, darkness ,sin, peril or what disaster can thwart Almighty God !

    what can keep you from the LOVE OF GOD?

    not even yourself can keep you from the Love of God!

    NOTHING /NOT ANYTHING CAN OVER RULE GOD. . . .
    AND GOD SAYS SO.

    SO THERE IS TRULY ONLY THE Potential AND LIKELIHOOD for Life, Love, and only God. . .nothing else! IT’S GOD’S WILL! CUZ EVERYTHING IS ALL GOD’S !

    GOD SAYS “MY WAYS ARE NOT YOUR WAYS.”

    ( so why does darkness and evil have such an influence on us?)

    JUST COME TO JESUS . . . THE MIRACLE WILL HAPPEN . . . WHEN YOU SEE . . . YOU’LL SEE

    Paul says “whatever is true, whatever is honorable, . . .anything worthy of praise. . .think on these things.”

    In everyday life be earnest to speak of these things.

    Original message… truly . . . you have to JUST come to Jesus.

    SO INFECT EVERYONE, WITH THE TRUTH. . . WITH THE LOVE OF GOD, OF GOD BEING YOUR LOVE! YOUR LIFE!
    nothing of self but all of God . . .let Jesus love you . . .all your heart, all your soul, all your might, all that you are. . .God’s very own!

    GOD’S LOVE. GREATER THAN ANY VIRUS, DISEASE OR ANY SICKNESS OR PLAGUE; GREATER THAN ANY SKUNK,VERMIN, DICTATOR, MURDERER, ADULTERER,ROBBER AND THIEF. GREATER THAN ANY DOCTRINE ,CHURCH, ANY HUMAN OR DEMON LIE, OR SELFISH INTENT.

    God says “bring all your high and lofty thoughts to the knowledge of God. . .and bring ALL into captivity to the obedience (devotion) of Christ!

    TRUE LOVE.

    BE INFECTED WITH THE LOVE OF GOD. . NOTHING CAN STOP IT, NOTHING CAN OVER TAKE IT, NOTHING CAN STOP ITS OVERWHELMING AFFECTS. . .it is thoroughly effective, it is called “A CONSUMING FIRE”. . .THE LOVE OF GOD!!!

    BE INFECTIOUS! WITH GOD’S LOVE!

    If there is any darkness. . .any cancer… any sin, any flesh, any demon, any death, anything. . .the Love of God IS SO MUCH GREATER!

    Nothing can prevent our healing. . .our cure. . .nothing can prevent our full glory in Christ. Nothing can keep us from the Love of God.

    All ENMITY, HURT, INJURY, HARM TO A HOLY GOD HAVE ENDED . . . ALL destroyed. . .totally. . .completely, forever. . .and that is why Christ has done it, He is forever praised.

    GOD’S PERFECT SELF, PERFECT SACRIFICE AND OFFERING . . . BRINGS US BACK TO THE BEGINNING OF ALL THINGS. . . THE FULLNESS OF GOD.

    YOU SEE, WHEN YOU SEE. . . THAT JESUS HAS CONFIRMED TO US THAT NOTHING NOT ANYTHING CAN KEEP US FROM THE LOVE OF GOD. YOU JUST HAVE TO LET IT HAPPEN IN YOU. JUST LIVE IT.

    It is all Your Life and Love in me Lord!

    No darkness in God. . .no darkness in You.

    RECEIVE THE LIFE. . .RECEIVE THE LOVE. . .RECEIVE JESUS. . .
    JESUS IN YOU!

    REFUSE THE LIE, REFUSE ALL DECEPTIONS.
    ACCEPT ONLY THE TRUTH.

    “IT’S ALL YOU MY GOD.” IN ME.

  10. Divination and False Prophets

    Balaam was an occultist. Joshua 13:22 calls him a “diviner.” He went to high places to read omens. He practiced “augury.” His renown in dealing out spiritual curses was such that Balak was willing to pay a lot of money to have Balaam curse Israel. Whenever mentioned in the Bible, Balaam is condemned (the story of Balaam is in Numbers 22-24; he is condemned in 2Peter 2:15; Jude 1:11; Revelation 2:14).

    One remarkable thing about Balaam is that though he was a false prophet, he made a significant true prophesy. He prophesied about the coming of Messiah! He said, “I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not near; A star shall come forth from Jacob, And a scepter shall rise from Israel, And shall crush through the forehead of Moab, And tear down all the sons of Sheth” (Numbers 24:17). Balaam, though normally practicing divination, had the Spirit of God come on him: “When Balaam saw that it pleased the Lord to bless Israel, he did not go as at other times to seek omens but he set his face toward the wilderness. And Balaam lifted up his eyes and saw Israel camping tribe by tribe; and the Spirit of God came upon him.” (Numbers 24:1, 2) Balaam blessed Israel though he was hired to curse them.

    There are three tests of prophets given in Deuteronomy: 1) if they use forbidden methods they are false (Deuteronomy 18:10-12), 2) If they make a prediction that does not come to pass they are false (Deuteronomy 18:22), and 3) If they make a true prediction yet lead the Israelites away from faithfulness to God they are false (Deuteronomy 13:1-5).

    Given the fact that God spoke to and through Balaam, how can it be that he was a false prophet? Balaam failed two of the tests given in Deuteronomy. He was a false prophet according to Deuteronomy 18 because he used forbidden methods. The Israelites were specifically told not to listen to anyone who practiced divination.

    He also failed the test of prophets given in Deuteronomy 13:

    If a prophet or a dreamer of dreams arises among you and gives you a sign or a wonder, and the sign or the wonder comes true, concerning which he spoke to you, saying, ‘Let us go after other gods (whom you have not known) and let us serve them,’ you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams; for the Lord your God is testing you to find out if you love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. (Deuteronomy 13:1-3)
    A prophet may give an accurate prediction or do a sign that would indicate he has power from God, yet still lead the people astray.

    Balaam, after failing to directly curse Israel through divination, taught Balak how to lead Israel astray and thus get them cursed. We learn this in the New Testament: “But I have a few things against you, because you have there some who hold the teaching of Balaam, who kept teaching Balak to put a stumbling block before the sons of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit acts of immorality” (Revelation 2:14). Failing to curse Israel, he taught Balak how to get them to put themselves under God’s curse. Thus Balaam led Israel away from covenant faithfulness and failed the test of Deuteronomy 13.

    False prophets are linked with divination in this passage: “Then the Lord said to me, ‘The prophets are prophesying falsehood in My name. I have neither sent them nor commanded them nor spoken to them; they are prophesying to you a false vision, divination, futility and the deception of their own minds” (Jeremiah 14:14). These prophets were telling the people what they wanted to hear, that the judgment that Jeremiah was predicting would not come to pass (Jeremiah 14:15). They were soon proven false. The point is this: God’s people need to be able to distinguish between prophets and diviners. The criterion for doing so is objective and not subjective. The false prophets were diviners whose source was subjective: “deception of their own minds.”

    there is one more test, that is the motive of people’s heart

  11. I think you did a good job of analyzing the dream.

    I agree with you

  12. will we sleep in heaven???

    someone believe that sleep will be an option; however, not necessary, like eating will be an option and not necessary. What is required on earth is not necessarily a requirement or needed in heaven.
    our best bet is to look at Adam and Eve. When Jesus returns in final judgment, He will redeem both mankind and creation. Heaven will come down to earth, and earth will actually be where we spend eternity with Christ as the our Lord.
    “The city does not need the sun or moon to shine upon it, for the glory of God gives it light… There will be no night there” (Revelation 21:23-25, 22:5).
    No Numbered Days? , No Idle Hours, there is time in heaven ??
    If we are going to eat in Heaven , there’s no reason to believe that we will not also sleep. There’s nothing bad about sleep – as Alcorn put it, “[sleep is] a matter of God’s design for the rhythm of life.”
    Rest is built in to everything God created. When He created the Universe, he rested on the seventh day (see Genesis 2:2), and when he made His law he commanded that the seventh day be a day of rest (see Exodus 20:8-11). God even rested the earth itself every seventh year (see Leviticus 25:1-7), so we know that He considers rest an important part of the completion of any work. But as we’ll see later, rest will not be our only experience in Heaven.

    • interesting….maybe a nice nap will be nice…..

    • Q the thing is we were not made to live in heaven. Yah made us to live on earth only earth has been defiled by the enemy but Yeshua will restore all things including this earth.

      The enemy would have defeated us if instead of restoring earth and having the Promise Land any different than the way Yahveh promised it to Abraham, Yitzhak and Yacob then it would be left in the same chaos satan left it when at the beginning Yahveh’s spirit surrounded earth and set in order.
      Yeshua will gather His own from the four corners of the earth to take us to all of the restored Promise Land right here on earth.

  13. Light has no shadow is such a profound truth. The sort of thing that is on your face and is so heavy with meaning.

    That is why we are told to walk in the light as He is. Then there will be no shadow cast on us.

  14. When praying at night looking at my backyard I am often accompanied by many flashes of light from little fireflies that seem to join me praising Yahveh. If a little firefly can let out a flash of light that illuminates the darkness creating quite a beautiful contrast, How much more then shouldn’t our light shine in the increasing darkness of this world?

  15. Dear Marianne,
