Isn’t it interesting how God created some natural things to be a shadow of heavenly things?
Hebrews 8:5 (NKJV)
5 who serve the copy and shadow of the heavenly things, as Moses was divinely instructed when he was about to make the tabernacle. For He said, “See that you make all things according to the pattern shown you on the mountain.”[a]
Think about the sun and the moon. The sun produces it’s own light…
The moon only reflects the light of the sun. In fact, the only way we have light in darkness is when the moon reflects the light from the sun.
But we all know that every now then the moon will ‘get in the way’, and its shadow will block the light from the sun. We all now this is called an eclipse.
Does this sound familiar?
Think of the Son of God and man (mankind). The Son produces His own light…
John 8:12 (NKJV)
12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”
Man only reflects the light of the sun. In fact, the only way we have light in darkness is when man reflects the light from the Son…
Matthew 5:16 (NKJV)
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
We must make sure that we live our lives so that we are reflecting the light of the Son of the God, our Lord and Savior Yeshua, Jesus Christ – and not blocking it.
Please don’t be a spiritual eclipse.
