The uncreated Light

    In 1 John 1.5 he begins his message. Where does he start? With this great fact that “God is Light” and not, as we might expected, with the fact that God is love. All the emphasis would no doubt have been on His love had the manifestation been made in regions of unsullied purity and light. As however the manifestation has been made in this world, so filthy with sin and full of darkness, the first emphasis must be laid on light.

    As to light – who can define it? Men have formulated theories to account for the light of creation, but they cannot really explain it. Who then shall explain the uncreated Light? We know that light is necessary if life is to exist in any but its lowest forms. We know that it is healthful, that it illuminates and exposes all things, and that if it enters darkness flees. In God there is no darkness at all, for darkness stands for that which is removed from the action of light, that which is hidden and sinful.

    Not only is God Himself light but, as verse 7 tells us, He is “in the light.” Once the Lord had said, “that He would dwell in the tick darkness” (2 Chron. 6.1); and the fact that Solomon built Him an house did not alter it, for His presence was still found in the Holy of Holies, where all was dark. This was altered by the coming of the Lord Jesus, for God stepped into the light in Him. The God who is light is now in the light F. B. Hole

Lumina necreata
    In 1 Ioan 1.5 el incepe mesajul. Cu ce incepe? Cu faptul extrem de impotant ca “Dumnezeu este Lumina’  si nu, cum ar fi fost de asteptat, ca Dumnezeu este dragoste. S-ar fi pus accent numai pe dragostea Lui, daca manifestarea ar fi fost acolo unde nu ar fi nimic intinat si totul in lumina. Dar, cum aceasta manifestare este in lumea atat de mult intinata prin pacat si plina de intuneric, se pune accent in primul rand pe lumina.
    Si, daca este vorba de lumina, cine o poate defini? Oamenii au formulat teorii cu privire la lumina din creatie, dar nu prea o pot explica.Cine ar putea atunci explica Lumina necreata? Stim ca lumina este necesara pentru existenta vietii, cu exceptia celor mai inferioare forme de viata. Stim ca lumina este sanatoasa, ca ea face vizibile toate lucrurile si ca ea risipeste intunericul. In Dumnezeu nu este pic de intuneric, deoarece intunericul este ceea ce lumina inlatura, prin prezenta ei, ceea ce este scuns si pacatos.
    Nu numai ca Dumnezeu Insusi este lumina, ci, dupa cum ne spune versetul 7, El este “in lumina.” Odinioara Domnul a spus ca “va locui in intuneric gros” (2 Cron. 6.1) si faptul ca Solomon I-a construit o casa nu schimba acel lucru, deoarece prezenta Lui se afla in Sfanta Sfintelor, unde era intuneric. Aceasta s-a schimbat la venirea Domnului Isus, deoarece Dumnezeu a venit in lumina prin El. Dumnezeu care este Lumina este acum in lumina.

THE GREATEST FATHER OF ALL

 BECOMING A CHILD OF GOD
*  Acts 4:10, 12 “Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Whom ye crucified, Whom God raised from the dead, even by Him doth this man stand here before you whole….Neither is there salvation in any other:  for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
*  John 1:11-12 “(Jesus) came unto His own, and His own received Him not.  But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the (children) of God, even to them that believe on His name.” 
*  Romans 10:9-10 – “…if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
*  Galatians 3:26 – “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.”

WE ARE CHILDREN OF GOD BY ADOPTION

*  Romans 8:15 – “For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.”
*  Ephesians 1:2-6 – “Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:  according as He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love:  having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, wherein He hath made us accepted in The Beloved.”

AS HIS ADOPTED CHILDREN, WE HAVE GOD AS OUR FATHER

*  Matthew 5:16 – “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father Who is in heaven.”
*  Matthew 6:1 – “Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them:  otherwise ye have no reward of your Father Who is in heaven.”
*  Matthew 7:11 – “If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask Him?”
*  Matthew 18:14 – “Even so it is not the will of your Father Who is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.”
*  Luke 6:36 – “Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.”
*  Luke 12:32 – “Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”
*  John 20:17 – “Jesus saith unto her, Touch Me not; for I am not yet ascended to My Father: but go to My brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto My Father, and your Father; and to My God, and your God.”

SOMETIMES, IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE WE ARE GOD’S CHILDREN!

*  1 John 3:1-2 – “Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the (children) of God:  therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew Him not.  Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is.

HOW WOULD YOU TITLE THIS?

 John 14:1-6 – “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in Me.  In My Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.  And where I go you know, and the way you know.  Thomas said unto Him, Lord, we know not where You go; and how can we know the way?  Jesus said unto him, I AM The Way, The Truth, and The Life:  no man comes unto the Father, but by Me.”

1 Corinthians 15:49-54 – “And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.  Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither does corruption inherit incorruption.  Behold, I show you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump:  for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.  For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.  So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.”

2 Corinthians 5:1-8 – “For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.  For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:  if so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.  For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.  Now He Who has created us for the selfsame thing is God, Who also has given unto us the guarantee of the Spirit.  Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, while we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord (for we walk by faith, not by sight):  we are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.”

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 – “But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who are asleep, that you sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.  For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so those also who sleep in Jesus will God bring with Him.  For this we say unto you by the Word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not precede them who are asleep.  For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:  and the dead in Christ shall rise first:  then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:  and so shall we ever be with the Lord.  Wherefore comfort one another with these words.”

1 John 3:1-2 – “Behold, what manner of love the Father has bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God:  therefore the world knows us not, because it knew Him not.  Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it does not yet appear what we shall be:  but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is.”

OBEDIENCE ALWAYS WINS!

13312776_1049826048433969_2369672180351956520_n
And it gets you stuck in life. Rebellion is called equal to witchcraft in the Bible. Israelites were in the desert for 40 years. It’s almost walking on a treadmill. You keep running and sweating but getting no where. It’s the same with rebellion. You will never win when you do it your way other than God’s way! There’s nothing more pleases and glorifies God than obedience. Today pray that God will give you an obedient heart! There’s humble attitude and selflessness in obedience. Why? Because when we’re obedient, we acknowledge God as the ultimate authority in our lives. We humble ourselves by obeying His requirements. And by following Him we tell him basically it’s not about us but it’s ALL about Him. Obedient life is a miraculous life. Because God will be always with you!

Işık Abla was born in Turkey. She was raised—and physically abused—in a Muslim home, only to escape into even deadlier abuse by a Muslim man she married.

Işık entered college when she was only sixteen and earned a bachelor’s degree in literature, followed by an advanced business degree. She worked in high-ranking executive positions for some of the largest corporations in Turkey and traveled throughout Europe.

In 1996, she fled to America from her violent Muslim husband after he tried to kill her.

Other tragedies took place brought her into a state of despair. After years of struggling to start her career all over again in a foreign country and failing in many areas of her personal life, Işık fell into deep depression. She became suicidal.

On the day she was planning to end her life, she had a personal encounter with God. That day, she surrendered her life to Jesus and she received the supernatural healing and redemption of Jesus Christ.

From that moment on, her life remarkably changed for the better. More doors were opened, and she was given a position as CFO, then as CEO, of a European corporation.

In the meantime, Işık served in many capacities as a minister, an evangelist and public speaker. She also enrolled into college to study Computer Science. After a while, she realized that God was calling her into full time ministry. She left her 2nd college and went to Ambassador’s Commission School of Ministry. Soon after her graduation, she became an ordained minister. Isik is currently studying Masters in School of Divinity on Theological Studies.

In 2009, Işık began hosting a satellite TV program on Kanal Hayat – Turkish language Christian Satellite channel. There was an overwhelming amount of response through these programs.

Two years later, because of tremendous responses from the Muslims, she began a live call-in program: The Way, The Truth and The Life that is simulcast on Turkish and Farsi TV channels throughout the Middle East and Europe. The responses started multiplying as the lives of Muslims were being transformed.

Currently, Işık’s TV programs target approximately 500 million people in the Muslim world. In 2014, the ministry reached 250 million people only through Social Media. Facebook has received an overwhelming response of 1.7 million likes and 3.5 million daily hits from Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Indonesia, Pakistan, Egypt, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Jordan, Yemen, India and the U.S. Thousands of messages are received monthly.

Because of the high demand and God’s calling, Işık started Embracing New Life, TV programs in English and aired on INSP TV (Inspiration TV). These programs are targeting hundreds of millions of Muslims and are being dubbed into Urdu, Farsi and Arabic.

Indonesia: RecentlyIşık received an invitation for her programs to be dubbed into Indonesian language as her ministry started receiving a demand and a great interest from Indonesia.

America: In April 2015, Embracing New Life began airing in the United States on NRB Network

Through Işık’s programs, viewers from all over the US, Europe and Muslim nations receive Isik’s message of hope, love and freedom in Christ. Isık is also the founder and the president of Işık Abla Ministries.

Public Speaking: Işık has been receiving invitations from churches for conferences on the following topics: Freedom in Christ on addictions, emotional hurt, freedom from past, anger, abuse, insecurities, etc. She also receives invitations from the churches to preach on revival.

SOME WORDS ABOUT US


WHAT DO YOU THINK? – We have all sinned and deserve God’s judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, “Jesus is Lord,” you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

     -GOD, WHOSE LOVE IS ALWAYS STRONGER
    “Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

    God, whose love is always stronger
    Than our weakness, pride and fear,
    In your world, we pray and wonder
    How to be more faithful here.
    Hate too often grows inside us;
    Fear rules what the nations do.
    So we pray, when wars divide us:
    Give us love, Lord! Make us new!

    Love is patient, kind and caring,
    Never arrogant or rude,
    Never boastful, all things bearing;
    Love rejoices in the truth.
    When we’re caught up in believing
    War will make the terror cease,
    Show us Jesus’ way of living;
    May our strength be in your peace.

    May our faith in you be nourished;
    May your churches hear your call.
    May our lives be filled with courage
    As we speak your love for all.
    Now emboldened by your Spirit
    Who has given us new birth,
    Give us love, that we may share it
    Till your love renews the earth!
