HOW MUCH LIGHT DOES ONE NEED WHEN PRESSED UNDER
by evil pressures and nightmarish reoccurring losses?
Only a pinhole. One pinhole of Godly
light is stronger than a universe of darkness. It is enough for
a surrendered believer to cling to and depend on when all
else has failed.


Psalm 89:15
“Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you,
who walk in the light of your presence, O LORD.”


When we focus upon the Light of God’s enduring and
endearing Presence, all darkness will eventually be
swallowed up into the Light of His Fountain of light.
His Light is victorious over the darkness.



Psalm 36:9
“For with you is the fountain of life;
In your light we see light.”



WE ALONE CANNOT BATTLE THE DARKNESS.
Our strength is not enough.
Accept that and know that God’s light comes to dispel
darkness. His strength and Righteous arm smashes dark
deeds, enemies, and deceivers and He will bring out into the
light the things men think that they have hidden or have
“justified” away.


Psalm 90:8
“You have set our iniquities before you,
our secret sins are in the light of your presence.”



WHEN YOU FEEL BLIND AND LOST IN A DARKENED SEASON.
Just as a caterpillar in a cocoon must experience a time of
confinement and seeming darkness, there comes a time
when it is lead out of darkness into light to stretch its newly
found wings of liberty and gracefulness to soar and express
resurrection power to those who gaze upon its beauty. Few
will fully understand the pain of this difficult process, unless
they too pass through it.


Isaiah 42:16

along unfamiliar paths I will guide them;
I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the
rough places smooth.
These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.”



“WORKERS OF RIGHTEOUS DEEDS”
There are those who do acts of benevolence and kindness
whose aim is gain personal gratification and a sense of
power when they “stoop” to help others in times of distress
and sorrow. Often times, folks with this fleshly behavior,
although claiming a form of godliness, “test” those whom
they share with. This can be either in monetary gifts,
spiritual gifts, or in counsel.
This is NOT a Worker of A Righteous deed.
This is a form of selfish ambition and control.


To be righteous means to be:


VIRTUOUS
MORAL
GOOD
JUST
BLAMELESS
UPRIGHT
HONORABLE
HONEST
RESPECTABLE
DECENT



A RIGHTEOUS DEED IS ONE DONE WITH THE
INTENT OF IMITATING THE NATURE OF GOD’S
MERCY AND GOODNESS.
It does not expect performance or groveling in return. Nor
does it hold others accountable for their actions in regards to
the “act” of Righteousness. Imagine if Jesus held us all
accountable to the acts of His goodness towards us and how
often we have failed and disrespected His grace. Yet…
…He continues in love, and acts of Righteousness.



I HAVE EXPERIENCED IN THE PAST AND EVEN AS
RECENTLY AS THE PAST FEW WEEKS,
OVERWHELMING ACTS OF BLESSING, KINDNESS
AND SACRIFICE FROM THOSE WHOM I KNOW GOD
MUST CALL HIS WORKERS OF RIGHTEOUS DEEDS.



The common thread I see among all of these beloved
Righteous givers of grace and care is that they have all,
experienced a time of great loss, depravation, near death, or
sorrow, and…they understand the need for a pinhole of light.


Jeremiah 9:24
“But let him who boasts- boast about this:
that he understands and knows Me,
that I am the LORD, who exercises kindness, justice and
righteousness on earth,
for in these I delight," declares the LORD.”



WHEN TORMENT AND LYING SPIRITS DECEIVE OTHERS
and they foolishly accuse you; know that there are others
whom God will place in your life that will bring sober and
Godly counsel, as well as loving kindness and help.


Proverbs 27:9
“Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart,
and the pleasantness of one's friend springs from his earnest
counsel.”



DO NOT STOP IN YOUR KINDNESS...
... AND IN YOUR CARE FOR OTHERS!
The testing in this hour of the hearts of men & women will
only grow more intense as the Lord examines the intentions
of the hearts of those who call Him Lord.


IF YOU HAVE CAUSED TRAGEDY, DESTRUCTION OR SHAME
to fall upon any of your Family in Christ and
have yet to openly apologize and make the situation you
were a part of rightly corrected, also know that the risk of a
deep darkness of the soul is reserved for those who choose to
walk in self-deception. Quickly while you have time, humble
yourself in the sight and the light of the Lord and HE will lift
you out of your darkness.


Isaiah 53:11
“After the suffering of his soul, he will see the light of life
and be satisfied; by his knowledge My righteous servant will
justify many, and he will bear their iniquities.”



“AN ABUNDANCE OF JOY…
…FOR WORKERS OF RIGHTEOUS DEEDS”

Psalm 45:7
“You love righteousness and hate wickedness;
therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions
by anointing you with the oil of joy.”


Psalm 33:1
“Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous;
it is fitting for the upright to praise him.”



HOLD ON! HOLD FAST! REACH OUT! –
A PROPHETIC WORD


“I the Redeemer of those who cry out to Me day
and night compel you to hold on to My hand of
Faithfulness and Light. Keep your eyes on the
light I provide for you in the darkness. Hold fast
to it and I will stir the hearts of the Righteous and
faithful in me to reach out a hand of compassion
and they will obey Me with acts of blessing,
restoration, and supply. They will do this
willingly for they have tasted of sorrow and know
the secret of My abundant Joy! They have gone
out weeping themselves. Sowing seeds they didn’t
understand, growing up in compassion, only to
produce a harvest, abundant in Joy.


Psalm 126:6
“He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow,
will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves
with him.”


I the Lord have tasted sorrow, loss, torment, and
death. Yet in one act of Righteousness, mankind
was brought the opportunity for the fullness of
Joy and the open door from darkness into light,
when they too, choose call upon My salvation,
cleansing, and light.


Quickly. Cleanse your hearts of any act of
unkindness, false humility, and the use of a heavy
hand over your brothers. The pinhole of
light...My Light. Is drawing you into a New Day.”


Psalm 112:4
“Even in darkness light dawns for the upright,
for the gracious and compassionate
and for the righteous man.”
