THE GREATER LIGHT BY PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME.
When you come into Christ, you come into a place called Christ, you come into Zion. You come into the city of the living God; you come into the heavenly Jerusalem that is here now in the spirit. You are in the kingdom now. You are an heir of God now, and he says all things are yours. You may be asking God for a good business, you may be asking God for money, asking God for a house, asking God for all kinds of things – those are lesser truths when God ministers them to you. Those are lesser truths when you decree that you’re going to have it or you decree that it’s going to happen. Those are all lesser truths. There is a greater truth that declares that in the now of your life, all things are yours! Now it takes spiritual understanding to come to that point in your life where you function in the greater truth, where you function by the greater light. Your prayer life would change – you’re not going to be asking ‘oh God make it possible for me to have this’, ‘oh God make it possible for me to do this’. All those kind of things would not be in your prayers when you understand and function in the greater light.
…study more of God’s word, understand it, digest it, and find your place in that greater light, because there’s much more to come. Oh, it doesn’t matter what your experiences might have been in the previous years. You might have gone through certain things, but it was because you didn’t know who you really were. You didn’t know that you were supposed to be functioning in the greater light. You didn’t know.
And many Christians have been functioning by the lesser light, so they live their lives in the night of life. And in the night of life, there’s a lot of problems, in the night of life, there’s a lot of difficulties. In the night of life, there’s a lot of hardship. There’s a lot of confusion in the night of life, and so things happened that you don’t understand. You wonder why there’s a lot of wandering in the night of life and how many Christians all over the world have found themselves in the night of their lives. The reason is because they are functioning in the lesser truth. They are asking God for what already belongs to them, they are trying to get what they already have. They are journeying to a place where they are actually coming from. What a life, they are functioning in the lesser light, and therefore live in the night of their lives. There’s a greater light to rule the day, it rules the day; it functions in the day. And when you begin to understand life in the greater light, you’d be amazed; you’d be functioning in the day of your life. All things are made manifest by the light. Then you’d begin to understand that your body is just your house where you dwell and that your body is not you.
Your spirit takes dominion over your physical body because your body belongs to you, it is your house. You take dominion over it and then you live a greater life – praise God. No wonder He says ‘count it all joy when you go through diverse tests’. Hallelujah. No matter what happens to you, He says ‘count it all joy’. Why? Because you know you are a victor in this life. Because He says greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world. It becomes your daily confession, no matter the difficulty, no matter what challenges, you just keep saying: ‘greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world’, ‘greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world’. It becomes your consciousness; it becomes your everyday confession. You’re not trying to make it happen; no, it is your life, glory to God. We don’t confess those things so that they would happen. No, we live there. Our confession establishes our understanding. We make the confessions as the declaration of God’s Word, and it establishes our understanding of God’s Word. It makes that which we have understood to stay – then it works!! Glory to God!! Are you still in this place? Function in the greater light.
