THE CHURCH BRINGS LIGHT

Broadcast 3712
Revelation 1:20 (AMP) As to the hidden meaning (the mystery) of the seven stars which you saw on My right hand and the seven lampstands of gold: the seven stars are the seven angels (messengers) of the seven assemblies (churches) and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.

Terna’s village was in thick spiritual darkness. Witches and sorcerers ruled the village, and they oppressed everyone and kept them in bondage.

The deliverance of that village came when some missionaries visited. They organized a crusade and ministered the gospel to many who were oppressed. Several sick people were healed and many others delivered from demonic oppression. Some of the missionaries remained in the village and established a church for the new believers. Light came to that village through the church.

From today’s Bible text, the lampstands represent church assemblies.

Every church assembly is placed in its location by the Lord to shine His light (the knowledge of the glory of God) and judge darkness there.

The light provided by the church is because the church (lampstand) does its physical and spiritual part to keep the fire burning.

When Jesus said ‘you are the light of the world’ He was referring to the Church. You along with your brethren in your local church assembly bring great spiritual illumination to that locality. Every Christian should be part of a Christian fellowship; by so doing he is fulfilling his calling of being a territorial light bringer.

Go into today knowing that as a member of a church assembly, you have a part to play in keeping the fire burning.

If you are a Christian and you are not committed to any Christian fellowship assembly, ask the Lord to lead you to the one for you.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
