Creation Genesis 1: 14-15, DAY 4 = KINGDOM ASSIGNMENT
God said, let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night.
Let them be for signs and for seasons, for days and years.
Let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth and it was so.
God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night.
He made the stars also and God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth and to rule over the day and over the night and to divide the light from the darkness and God saw that it was good. Evening and morning were the fourth day.
SPIRITUAL MEANING OF SUN, MOON AND STARS-CREATION DAY 4
- Lights in the firmament of the heavens are the angels of the Lord and the righteous-servants of God
- Division of day and night is further division of righteousness from unrighteousness by these angels and servants of God through the word of God
- These angels and servants, communicate through a demonstration of signs of God, seasons, days and years
- Greater light to rule the day represents Jesus Christ, the Light of those He shepherds. The lesser light are His disciples who lead those in the dark to light.
- The stars are the highest spiritual ranks of members of righteousness
- The stars that give light upon the earth are the servants starting with angels down to the very least, who guide the earth to the state of heaven now that you get it
- The stars rule over the righteous to maintain righteous order and also the unrighteous for guidance
- The stars dividing the light from the darkness is how these lights keep the children of Light from walking in the ways of corruption
- Evening is you. Morning is Jesus Christ behind all of it.
DETAILED INTERPRETATION OF THE CREATION STORY DAY 4
In Acts 2:20 you see that “the sun will be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord. And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved”.
The Sun is a symbol of the Light that is brought forth by the Grace of Jesus Christ. It shows us what salvation looks like every single summer and parts of spring.
When the Sun is out, people wake up from sleep. Just like when Jesus Christ comes to our lives, we are awakened from the sleep brought about by the darkness caused by our sinful ways.
The Sun, lights our paths throughout the day and we can see clearly where we are going. We can see what we do and who we associate with. Just like the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ brings light to our issues of life so that we can maintain the course of righteousness.
John 11:9-Jesus answered:
“Are there not twelve hours of daylight?
If anyone walks in the daytime, he will not stumble, because he sees by the light of this world.
But if anyone walks at night, he will stumble, because he has no light”.
Here, in parables as usual, He was talking about Himself and not the fact that, we must walk during the day only, so that we don’t fall when we walk at night.
He meant that as long as we walk in His light and grace (day time) we cannot fall through sin because He leads us as the light of the world, through the paths of righteousness.
However, if we walk in sin which is night-darkness, we will stumble because in sin, the light of the Lord is unavailable unless we repent. We make wrong decisions and face the consequences thereof. This usually happens because of lack of Faith which leads to disobedience.
“No longer will you have the sun for light by day, Nor for brightness will the moon give you light; But you will have the LORD for an everlasting light, And your God for your glory.
“Your sun will no longer set, Nor will your moon wane; For you will have the LORD for an everlasting light, And the days of your mourning will be over”.
This prophecy spoke of what will be when Jesus Christ comes in the flesh. Through Him, we will no longer have to hold on to a hope reminded to us daily by signs. The sun will no longer have to give us light by day because His presence will be in our midst. As an everlasting light, our God for our glory.
Since He will always be with us through Faith by Grace, we will always have light and there will be no darkness found in our midst. That’s why He said through Isaiah “your sun will no longer set, nor will your moon wane; for you will have the Lord for an everlasting light, and the days of your mourning will be over”.
The Sun is a daily reminder of the light brought to our lives through the Grace and Mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ by Faith.
Please, remember this does not mean that we should start worshipping the Sun!!
We should never look up to it as though it was God and neither should we call to the angels assigned to the Sun! Just so you know. We worship God of Abraham only and not His creation.
“And beware not to lift up your eyes to heaven and see the sun and the moon and the stars, all the host of heaven, and be drawn away and worship them and serve them, those which the LORD your God has allotted to all the peoples under the whole heaven”.
In Isaiah 30:26 we learn that: “The light of the moon will be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun will be seven times brighter, like the light of seven days, on the day the LORD binds up the fracture of His people and heals the bruise He has inflicted”.
The moon, symbolises the Church which is the house of God built on Jesus Christ by His spirit. It also reflects the seasons of the Church. There are seasons of restoration, renewal, persecution, retribution, revival just to give a few examples in the church. These seasons are determined by the faith and obedience of members of the body of Christ.
In the prophecy of Isaiah through Jesus Christ for example, we see that when Jesus Christ has established His dwelling with us, after discipline which we are encouraged to accept, the Church is revived and filled with His righteousness. Hence it says “the light of the moon will be as the light of the sun”.
The light of the church, is as bright as the light of Jesus Christ. We transform to His likeness which is the end goal. Again, not to mean that the Sun is Jesus Christ or should ever be considered to be worshipped!!
This occurs because of the illumination within the church caused by the Glory of God through the salvation of His Son Jesus Christ. All of these working through faith and obedience which leads to an abundance of grace and mercy.
The presence of the Lord which is brighter than the sun, brings light within us the church. Paul said: “therefore let no one judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a feast, a New Moon, or a Sabbath. These are a shadow of the things to come, but the body that casts it belongs to Christ“.
Many things reflect what is to come when Jesus Christ comes in the flesh. Like now as we are discussing, the moon is a shadow of what is to come but the SUBSTANCE belongs to Jesus Christ. In His presence, we are brighter than day. In His absence, we are darker than night.
The Church, is supposed to be a light for the world through the spirit of the Lord. It exists to be an illuminator of the right path to follow as a people. It is meant to direct the course of righteousness through the spirit of the Lord of righteousness. Further bringing harmony, peace and tranquility, justice and equity amongst each other. Just like the moon brings light in the dark.
That’s why when the church fails, the world fails even more. If the moon is dark, then the darkness of the night becomes very dark.
The main reason why the Glory of God departs from the church leading to its failures is because of Idolatry caused by lack of faith, which leads to apostasy.
Apostasy leads to backsliding. Backsliding leads to Sin. Sin leads to depravity and eventually death.
Since as you all well know today the church you see is filled with “fake jews” or rather hypocrites… Isaiah warned us in advance that: “the moon will be abashed and the sun ashamed, For the LORD of hosts will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, And His glory will be before His elders”.
A church that lights its own paths through their dubious ways and craftiness will be put to shame in the end. You have been warned very many times that your prophets and pastors are actually leading you to hell. Though you know how we do… we don’t like to listen so wait for it. Since this is a generation of “seeing is believing”!
Mathew 24:29 says: “But immediately after the tribulation of those days THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED, AND THE MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT, AND THE STARS WILL FALL from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken”.
Here we are told of the judgment that will come after the days of tribulation. For the main purpose of tribulation, is to cause you to look up and seek for the grace and mercy of God in repentance. However is that what we do? So after the tribulation:
- The Sun will be darkened= Grace will be withdrawn. The long suffering of the Lord will come to an end.
- The moon will not give its light= The church will be as good as dead because of lack of Faith as discussed earlier.
- The stars will fall= Angels from heaven will also be judged and some removed from their position because of sin. As you know today there are people who speak to angels in heaven? Even heavenly deities? Those will be fired from their jobs and come and join their people as they wait for the rod of iron.
- Powers of the heaven will be shaken= The fear of the righteous in Heaven as the Lord comes in judgment and because of what will take place on earth on that great day.
Otherwise, you see David praising God in Psalm 136:7-9 saying: “To Him who made the great lights, For His lovingkindness is everlasting: The sun to rule by day, For His lovingkindness is everlasting, The moon and stars to rule by night, For His lovingkindness is everlasting”.
God granted David to understand His wisdom and it brought praise in his heart. Something the mind blowing and infinite wisdom of the Lord does to our hearts when we have a glimpse.
In the last days which we are now in the beginning of, it is written in Acts that, THE SUN WILL BE TURNED INTO DARKNESS AND THE MOON INTO BLOOD, BEFORE THE GREAT AND GLORIOUS DAY OF THE LORD SHALL COME.
Meaning, grace will be withdrawn. As we all know everything has a breaking point. The Church will be filled with violence and persecution hence the moon will turn into blood.
Then the Lord who has patiently been doubted and rejected by many will come to avenge everyone according to their own deeds.
Afterwards, things will change and everyday will be summer time. Revelation 21:23 says “and the city has no need of the sun or of the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God has illumined it, and its lamp is the Lamb”.
The sun and the moon are for darkness which will be overcome by the light. There will no longer be darkness in the world and the true church will shine in the righteousness of the Lord through Him.
Until then, understand that God tells the story of His kingdom everyday, though He laid the foundations for everything in the beginning.
Daily, He reminds us to come to the Light who overcomes the darkness so that we may walk and not stumble. Even when it’s too dark, that we may be illumined by His light so much so that we do not need the moon.
Again, this does not mean that you should start worshipping the things you see up there. Or look at them as though they were God. Understand His creation and Praise Him only. Respect the boundaries for your own good.
For emphasis sake I will repeat… Deuteronomy 4:19: “And beware not to lift up your eyes to heaven and see the sun and the moon and the stars, all the host of heaven, and be drawn away and worship them and serve them, those which the LORD your God has allotted to all the peoples under the whole heaven”.
Kindly don’t engage in astrological things either. God hates that. We look for only what we have been told not more or less. A dark sun and a bloody moon. That’s all.
If there is any further news then its up to the Lord to tell us. It’s not up to us to begin to intrude to matters that are literally higher than us.
The stars are symbols of the servants of God. These include the servants in heaven who we cannot see, heavenly hosts or rather angels and those on earth within the true church of God. Priests, apostles, prophets etc
“But God turned away and delivered them up to serve the host of heaven; as it is written in the book of the prophets, ‘IT WAS NOT TO ME THAT YOU OFFERED VICTIMS AND SACRIFICES FORTY YEARS IN THE WILDERNESS, WAS IT, O HOUSE OF ISRAEL?
‘YOU ALSO TOOK ALONG THE TABERNACLE OF MOLOCH AND THE STAR OF THE GOD ROMPHA, THE IMAGES WHICH YOU MADE TO WORSHIP. I ALSO WILL REMOVE YOU BEYOND BABYLON.’
Here you see what I am trying to show you. I have also told you until today, there are people who are in the business of speaking to angels in heaven. As you can see in the book of acts among other books, this is something God hates.
I know the new agers aside from various “churches” teach people to speak to and consult angels.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but there will be an unmatched penalty for not only speaking to angels but also putting your trust on servants of God on earth as though they were God. Read your scriptures and be sure you don’t suffer the penalty of ignorance.
There should never be a thing in our midst such as “spiritual father” or “standing in the covering of my pastor”, “tapping to his or her anointing” and directly contacting angels when it is God who gives them charge.
Apostle Paul was an example of a heavenly host. He asked “For when one of you says, “I follow Paul,” and another, “I follow Apollos,” are you not mere men? What then is Apollos? And what is Paul? They are servants through whom you believed, as the Lord has assigned to each his role.
You are not supposed to cling to the heavenly hosts of God as though they were God. They are just guides in appointment under God, meant to lead you to Him. Not even to themselves.
So you cannot call angels, pray to Mary, our forefathers and the saints. You call on Jesus Christ only who is the truth, the way and life. Nobody goes to the Father in Heaven except through Him and Him alone.
To by pass Him is reportedly said to be robbery. You are trying to enter the sheepfold through the fence rather than the gate and so you will be judged as a thief.
You who visit prophets for consultation and preachers to ask them about your life as though they created you YET 99.9% of them are fake, beware of this and if you have been doing it, stop it. There is going to be a painful judgment for it soon and all will see. I have warned you.
Like the prophecy of the linen waistband through Jeremiah (also a star), God wants us to cling to Him through Jesus Christ, like the linen waistband clings on the waist. Not cling to His servants both true and fake.
Otherwise the stars are heavenly hosts. Servants of God for the course of righteousness. Angels in heaven and servants on earth to bring light in the darkness.
Daniel 12:3 says “Those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever”. Just to emphasise what I mean.
This too, does not mean you should begin astrology. In fact there are people who use astrology, even in the church, to predict matters and also pry in to people’s lives to destroy them. You will be bashed with a rod of iron!!
Isaiah 47:13-“You are wearied with your many counsels; Let now the astrologers, Those who prophesy by the stars, Those who predict by the new moons, Stand up and save you from what will come upon you”.
I have said it before and I will say it again, history has been ruthless and the future will be worse to human beings that want to play God. We are told to be as servants and if we can like the master but NEVER above Him.
Don’t look at the stars in an attempt to plan evil against people, don’t contact angels directly or worship them, neither should you worship the stars, don’t rely on man concerning your life as you do with those fake preachers and run away from astrology.
If you have read those astrological predictions before perhaps innocently, repent and ask God to forgive you. We all fall short of His glory and from then hence forth never look at them.
Otherwise in the last days, due to disobedience brought about by pride, greed and ignorance, there will be fallen angels on earth waiting for judgment. Together with their consultants.
This will be because of their collaboration on earth. Revelation 6:13-and the stars of the sky fell to the earth, as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind.
“So I will stretch out My hand against Judah And against all the inhabitants of Jerusalem And I will cut off the remnant of Baal from this place, And the names of the idolatrous priests along with the priests. “And those who bow down on the housetops to the host of heaven, And those who bow down and swear to the LORD and yet swear by Milcom“.
“They will spread them out to the sun, the moon and to all the host of heaven, which they have loved and which they have served, and which they have gone after and which they have sought, and which they have worshiped They will not be gathered or buried; they will be as dung on the face of the ground”.
Please beware and be warned. If you have been doing this, there is no better time to retreat than now when God is eager to grant us grace and mercy. Before the sun is darkened, the stars fall and the moon is bloody!
It is written “Seek the LORD while He may be found; call on Him while He is near. Let the wicked man forsake his own way and the unrighteous man his own thoughts; let him return to the LORD, that He may have compassion, and to our God, for He will freely pardon”.
Everybody’s assignment within the Kingdom, for the course of righteousness, was assigned on day 4.
Previously we saw the type of people within the Kingdom. Today we have seen the spiritual ranking of the servants of God and their purpose which is to separate light from darkness.
There are servants who are strictly for the church and there are servants who are for the world. Generally, the church is supposed to be a spiritual and even moral compass for the world symbolised by the moon in the dark. The sun as we have seen shows us the Light of salvation and how impactful it is for our daily walk. The stars are the angels plus the servants on earth.
The foundation of everything that takes place today, was laid since the beginning of time. Truly as John wrote, Jesus Christ was from the beginning, He was with God and Is God. Nothing was, is and will be, except through Him.
All of this God looked at it and He saw it was good.
Day 4=Kingdom Assignment
Next up, we will look at day 5.
Let nothing take you by surprise anymore in terms of behaviours of people. As you can see before we were even formed in the womb, the default set up of who we will be-who people are, was set since the beginning of the foundations.
Whenever you feel overwhelmed by what is going on around you, look up and speak with God who has created all these things and people.
You know, I never understood (now I do, hope you too) why great servants of God prayed like this when they encountered difficult people so to speak:
“O Lord, it is You who MADE THE HEAVEN AND THE EARTH AND THE SEA, AND ALL THAT IS IN THEM, who by the Holy Spirit, through the mouth of our father David your servant, said, WHY DID THE GENTILES RAGE (some scriptures say “the oceans roar”) AND THE PEOPLE DEVISE FUTILE THINGS?..”-this was by Peter and John under persecution.
Nehemiah prayed the same in similar circumstances:
“You alone are the LORD You have made the heavens, The heaven of heavens with all their host, The earth and all that is on it, The seas and all that is in them You give life to all of them And the heavenly host bows down before You”.
Then remember these two things that Jesus said among His many brilliant sayings:
- But I tell you not to resist an evil person. If someone slaps you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also; if someone wants to sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well
- But I tell you that anyone who is angry with his brother will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to his brother, ‘Raca,’ will be subject to the Sanhedrin. But anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be subject to the fire of hell.
Jesus Christ is behind everything that takes place on earth-in people. His actions through people are determined by the state of our-their hearts. Where we stand with Him.
“To the faithful You show Yourself faithful, to the blameless You show Yourself blameless, to the pure You show Yourself pure, but to the crooked You show Yourself shrewd”
If you are doing bad things, you need to be very afraid and return to the Lord as quick as you can and ask Him to render you a new heart. Otherwise chances are if you will not repent, you are doomed for destruction. This was since day 3 when the Sea was gathered in one place.
If you are doing good things, everything you face does not work against you but for you. Receive it all with thanksgiving, supplication and petition.
In the face of difficult people, don’t bother with them, consult with the Lord. Be inspired by the prayer of Nehemiah, Peter and John. Don’t bother fighting your enemies. Present the case to the Lord and leave it with Him who is maker of all.
Learning and understanding this, has made my life so easy and I take it as salvation. Everyday as I understand what is happening around me and within me, I have determined to be less reactive and more consultative to the maker of ALL. So far, if I must, I am peddling around “get angry but do not sin”.
I hope you learn something from this and prayerfully by the spirit, adjust your course. Many terrible things will take place from 2020 going forward. So bad that Lord said some people’s hearts will fail.
Also I hope, you will be patient with yourself even as you surrender to the Lord Jesus Christ who is the force behind all creation.
As you patiently lean on Him, you can use the creation story to gauge where you stand spiritually. If you don’t like where you are, change is possible.
You have a golden chance to do what Jesus said:
Strive for the things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things
For example if you are grass, you can say you want to advance to a herb or maybe you even desire to be a tree that bears good fruit… whatever you wish for, if you ask in Jesus name, it will be granted to you. That He may be glorified even as the Father in heaven is glorified.
Otherwise all I have to say concerning God nowadays is He is a GLORIOUS God.
Remember: all of creation praises and worships God of Abraham. So don’t be deceived to “speak to the universe” or angels. The universe itself QUAKES IN THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD. Say no to deception and save yourself from the rod of iron and unquenchable fire.
We are looking at Day 5 next. See you there.
