Every Christian needs the Interpreter living and filling them on the inside because He will disclose to them, make known to them the Word of God. The Holy Spirit is the Interpreter. He decodes the Word of God for us from Heaven's point of view. The way the world understands words, isn't the same as how words are understood in Heaven. If we could understand how words are used in Heaven and what they mean, we would understand our covenant with God, and how to get that covenant operating in our life.
For instance, take the word "light". What does the word light mean in English in this natural world? Light that comes from a light bulb, a candle, the sun, the moon, the stars. But, what does light mean from God's point of view, taking the meaning farther? The natural man doesn't perceive that there is a spiritual realm that is more real than the natural realm that we can see, feel, taste, smell, and hear. In the natural realm, when we turn on a light, darkness disappears.
In the spiritual realm light dispels darkness as well. In the spiritual realm darkness isn't merely lack of light from the natural eyes. Darkness is the demon kingdom or realm. Darkness is the inability to see Light, or understand the word of God.
Matt 4:16 The people who sat (dwelt enveloped) in darkness have seen a great Light, and for those who sat in the land and shadow of death Light has dawned.
People tend to think, if I can't see the angels, and demons all around me, then they must not exist. We can't see them, but we can learn to perceive their presence.
The entrance of His Word brings Light. When you have light, then you can see and understand the Word. If you are in darkness, then you can't understand the Word. Where does light come from? The Word. By pouring the word into your spirit, even before understanding it, that word will bring the light for understanding. Everything is made out of light, the light that God said and brought into being with the words, "Light be!" It would be same as saying, "Light come into existence!" And Light was. Or Light became. Or Light came into existence.
In Heaven, there is no need for the sun, because the Word (Jesus) is there, and the light shines from Jesus being (the Word of God). Every time anyone says they have seen the Father, all they saw was LIGHT. Jesus light comes from the Father. The Holy Spirit's light comes from the Father, and because the Holy Spirit indwells in our spirit, then we have the light of God shining forth from us. Light should be inside our words when we speak.
