Lights in the Darkness

Roughly two weeks ago, I entered into a vision. The vision began in the daytime, but as I stood and watched, the day quickly turned to dusk. Then suddenly, as if a global light switch was flicked off, everything turned to complete darkness. It was pitch black. I couldn’t see my hands in front of my face. And there was absolutely no sound. Every single person had been ordered to remain silent.

“Jesus!” I whispered, anxiously. I was feeling the undercurrent behind the sudden lack of light, which was murky. Ominous. Deceptive. “What’s going on?”

“Keep the eyes of your spirit focused on me,” said Jesus. “Don’t let the lack of light fool you.”

“Ok,” I said. And as I focused on Jesus with the eyes of my spirit, my body lit up like a lantern, right there in that dark place.

“See?” said Jesus. “I am in you and you are in Me; you are the light of the world, now look and see.”

Keeping the eyes of my spirit on Jesus, I used my physical eyes to try to see into the darkness. Not far from me to my left, another lantern lit up. Then to my right, another lantern did the same. Then everywhere in between, lanterns upon lanterns lit up in the darkness—lanterns that were each a member of the Body of Christ. The lanterns were holy and pure. They flickered with the flames of Truth and Righteousness.

“Many in the body are still not yet aware of the light they carry. But look at them!” said Jesus. “They are beautiful! If only they understood. If only they could see!”

As Jesus said this, we went up higher until we had a complete aerial view of the earth, and I was shocked… an in-awe kind of shocked. Whilst the entire globe had initially been covered in complete darkness, we witnessed the lights of the children of God as they (one by one) lit up the entire globe in a corporate frequency of Kingdom light. Everywhere a lantern lit up, the darkness was forced to recede. Picket fences, homes, streets, shopping malls, and cities were uncovered by the receding darkness. And then other people who hadn’t known Jesus witnessed the furious, untamed, unhindered burning of the lanterns and entered into Him. As soon as they did, they too lit up.

I teared up. The beauty of what was taking place across the globe was overwhelming, and it reminded me of John 8:12, which says, “Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the  Light of the  world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.”

Then, Jesus showed me, yet again, that because we are in Him and He is in us, we are …”the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.”

Then I felt Jesus say, “When / if a time of darkness such as this arrives, do not indulge the eyes of your body, but walk in the spirit. Do not give credence to the darkness, because the darkness is deception. Where I am, the darkness cannot be, because I am The Way, the Truth, and The Life.”

As sons and daughters of God, we are lights in the darkness. It is time for us to recognise this truth. Do not be afraid, sons and daughters. Do not fear. You are the light of the world. Isaiah 58:8-9 says:

Then your light will break out like the dawn,
And your recovery will speedily spring forth;
And your righteousness will go before you;
The glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.
“Then you will call, and the Lord will answer;
You will cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am.’
