1st study of the parables of Jesus Christ, "The lamp on the Stand"

Good afternoon, we are starting a blog today on the parables of Jesus! This is a good way for all of us to share our different levels of knowledge we have in Him. Some of us will read a parable one day and the next day get a deeper revelation from it, the more we read the Bible the more deeper His revelations are revealed to us, it is a relationship that keeps on giving as we get closer to Him personally through prayer and meditation on His word. This is a great time to share what He has given us because his parables have secret meanings for us who know Him!  ( Luke 8v10 He said, "The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of God has been given to you, but to others I speak in parables, so that, "though seeing, they may not see; through hearing, they may not understand.) Why do you think God would want to keep His knowledge away from anyone? That is what some people ask when they read this particular word, why would he want to keep His knowledge and the secrets  of the kingdom away from anyone? The truth is He doesn't we do by unbelief, the ones that believe in Him will always get the understanding and the secrets of Him revealed to them, it can happen in one second or a life time, depending when you are ready to surrender yourself to Him. This means all things go behind Him, all new things of Him are given to you and are a head of you. When we do surrender we receive Him and then He begins to use us for His purpose, this is where a lot of us fall away and discontinue His use of working through us. Those of us who have much will be given more and the ones that have what they think they have even that will be taken away, which leads us to our first parable we are going to talk about today. Luke 8v16-18 No one lights a lamp and hides it in a jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, he puts it on a stand, so that those who came in can see the light. v17 For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open. v18 Therefore consider carefully how you listen. Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what he thinks he has will be taken from him. The first question I had when I first read this is, what will be brought out in the open and for what purpose? I understood the light not wanting to be hid under a bed or in a jar. The words, so those that come in can see the light, after the first several times reading it began to take a deep meaning. What does so those that come in, come in where, at first it meant in my house the first couple of times I read it, but my house took on another meaning, meaning what lives in me. Then it meant inside me, for the ones that come in and see where I live in side can see what is inside me living, which for us who believe in our Lord and Savior have the Holy Spirit of Him living inside us, the new person that shines the light in us. This light is not our own, it is a light we have never seen or felt the warmth from the love it gives  off before. A love that goes way beyond our self in our own understanding of the word. It goes past ourselves into Him loving others through us for His purpose of making Himself known, not condemning anyone but loving others enough to see what they are lacking for His purpose of giving them His knowledge of who He is, the truth and His light to shine in them. This light has His own light and shines when He wants to which should be all the time so all will be exposed, nothing will be hidden or concealed from his light. So this incredible light we do not have any consciousness of it shinning in us but the Holy Spirit gives us the knowledge of what He has given us with His gifts and teaches us all things. At first we do not want to see all the suffering He gives us in others, we have to face rejection and sacrificing ourselves for reference to Him on all different levels. The homosexual for instance, tells us a long with others that do not except the truth of God. God loves us the way we are is true but the whole truth is He loves us in your sin enough to send his Son  to receive our sin so you do not have to live in it any longer. He delivers us from evil, he does not love us in sin and stop there or Christ died for nothing.They take the first part of the truth and destroy the last part, the most glorious part that He died for, our sins, and all will be exposed to us in ourselves, then in others so He can lead others to the light through us. But remember the darkness will not except the light because their deeds will be exposed. For us that want our deeds to be exposed because we all are sinners, and I am one of the worst, are those that want to change and want Him to change us so we stand firm in the faith in Him making us who we are. He then gives us His light to shine so others we meet that are living in darkness will be exposed so He can save them through His love, and warmth from His light shinning within, with His words of truth and His deeds He gives us to glorify who He is in our lives. Those that come in where he is will see Him, some will run and others will stay and receive His light for themselves. So today do not hide your light in fear, under a bed or in a jar, but let it shine for His purpose of exposing everything that is not himself so other people can glorify with you the light of men, which is Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior!! Be thankful that He is exposing what needs to be exposed in you so His light can shine through the darkness! Then we who have the light will receive more because we were obedient letting Him use us the way He wants to growing in faith in Him everyday making us who we are so He can work through us in every opportunity He gives us. I hope this gives you a better understanding of this parable, He sure did give me a new revelation from it and I had to share it with you. Woe is me if I do not tell you what He reveals to me for you, I have to let His light shine or His light will grown dim and so will I because of it! I want His love to always shine bright in me for you, for your benefit of knowing His truth in saving you from all of what is not Him in you, He wants you to know Him and His love for you above anything else in your life and because He does I do!
