Ecclesiastes 3:1 KJV
“To EVERY THING there is a SEASON, and a TIME to every purpose under the heaven”
The moment God introduced the element Light (Fire) into the chaotic condition of the Earth at the time, everything was set for order to be restored.
Genesis 1:5 KJV
“And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night…..”
So, Light is what makes the difference between Day and Night. Night is defined by the absence of light.
The times and Seasons of Life are also determined and regulated by Light.
Genesis 1:14 KJV
“And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for SIGNS, and for SEASONS, and for DAYS and YEARS”
Our annual calendar is made up of days, seasons and years that are determined by Light. Light also “rules” or governs day and night.
Genesis 1:16 KJV
“And 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”.
The 2 lights made are the Sun and the Moon. God also made Stars. These celestial bodies influence life on Earth. They position the earth for seed sowing and harvest. They determine the weather changes on earth. They influence the ocean tides. They even influence actual events that directly impact people on Earth. Technically, this means that the activities or results of your whole year is subject to the influence of these celestial lights.
Powers of darkness understand the influence of these lights and use the information gleaned from studying them to manipulate the daily events of people they wish to afflict. Astrology is the study of the secrets of these celestial bodies.
However, If you notice, these 2 Lights that govern the day and night are not the same as The Light that God spoke into existence in the beginning.
This spoken Light was what set the stage for the making of both day and night as well these Lights that govern them.
Therefore, if the Sun, Moon and Stars influence events on Earth and govern day and night, there’s a higher Light that controls the Sun, Moon and Stars. It is the Light of The WORD of God.
It means a believer in Christ can influence the influence of these lights by using the Light of The Word of God. The Word of God is the highest LIGHT in all creation. It is the creator of everything created.
“Thy Word is a LAMP unto my feet, and a LIGHT unto my path” ( Psalm 119:105).
Even though the ordinances of the sun, moon and stars have been predetermined, Joshua understood that the higher Light of God’s Word expressed as Divine Authority can alter or influence the activities of these lights. In the battle with the Kings, he commanded the Sun not to set at its appointed time and the sun & moon obeyed him. (Joshua 10:12-13).
You can regulate the luminaries that are regulators of times and seasons of life by introducing the greatest light of all - The Word which began the beginning when there was no beginning.
I reign in life by the Light of God’s Word. I shape, direct and structure my life and results by the Word. I influence and direct my year by the higher Light of The Word. My Light controls the lights of the Sun, Moon and Stars. Just like Joshua, I now command the Sun, Moon and Stars to cooperate with the rest of creation in responding favourably to all that concerns me today and for the rest of 2017. Amen
