“Walking In the Light as He Is In the Light” by Michael and Susanne

Susanne Schuberth and I conspired on this together as God has been speaking to us about the depth of what it means to “walk in the light as HE is in the light.”

“And we are writing this that our joy may be complete. This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light and in him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not live according to the truth; but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.” (1 John 1:4-7 RSVA)

Susanne wrote, “Meanwhile I believe that God only shows us that there is no good thing coming from the old man in order to bring forth those genuinely good things that spring from a new God-given heart. But the process until we are through with all these “ouch-experiences” and our natural tendency to run…

      Thank you Bernie. We know that perfect love casts out all fear, and you have quoted a verse that says He is the Light of our salvation that casts out all fear. but John seems to also tie love and light together. The Lord is both our Light and our Love and both seem to chase away our fears. John wrote,

      And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love; and he that dwells in love dwells in God, and God in him. In this is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear: because fear has to do with punishment. He that fears is not made perfect in love. (1 John 4:16-18 KJ2000)

      He that loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no occasion of stumbling in him.
      (1 John 2:10 KJ2000)

      Love and Light in the same verse. Interesting, isn’t it? These two passages have given me so much to contemplate and pray over. God bless you, my brother.

    I UNDERSTOOD “PERFECT LOVE CAST OUT FEAR”
    IN LIGHT OF MARK 10 V 15.LIKE A CHILD COM-
    PLETELY DEPENDENT ON EARTHLY FATHER
    INCLUDING PROTECTION. SO, THE CHILD NEED NOT FEAR1 THE SAME WITH THE HEAVENLY
    FATHER SINCE WE ARE COMPLETELY DEPENDENT
    ON HIM FOR EVERYTHING! INCLUDING PRO-
    TECTION FROM OUR ENEMIES.

    Thank you for the post. I found the article joyful, but also sobering. Since satan can appear as an angel of light, I need to discern in whose light I am walking. Michael said, “and His Light exposes our darkness”. That is a test, to my understanding, of determining whose light is guiding me. The apostle John seems to say more about the light of the Lord than the other writers. I thrill at his writings. I pray that I can fully experience them.

    Love and appreciation to you both,

    Pat Orr

      Dear Pat,, I have prayed and been asking God how to answer your comment, about God’s light and Satan coming as an angel of light and discerning the difference. He said to me, “As long as you come to me as my little child, I will be there to guide you and hold you close to me.” It is not about having all our doctrinal ducks in a row, but it is ALWAYS about our relationship with our Daddy. Even the prodigal son came fully back to His father and was restored completely. He will make sure we do as we trust in Him.

      Love you, too! ❤

    • You’re welcome, Pat. Yes, we need to discern in which light we are walking and that is anything but easy. If I am insecure, I ask God to guide me and He never misled me. It is interesting that Satan’s light mostly feels good in the beginning (since it pushes our ego) and later when we see it was him, it feels rather awful to have let him in. He always suggests human stuff that easily matches our normal thinking we have been used to. Yet God cannot be comprehended and enduring His light that exposes our inner dark spots that have not been healed causes pain at first. But when we are healed, we will be free and happy. You see, it is the other way round as it is with the angel of light.

      Love to you ❤

    AS WE COMPLETELY DEPEND ON OUR FATHER GOD WHO LOVES US( as is
    stated) AND PROTECTS US SUCH: WE NEVER NEED TO “FEAR”! SO, HIS PERFECT
    LOVE FOR US CASTS OUT OUR FEAR!

    IS THERE ANYWHERE IN THE SCRIPTURE THAT SATAN’S ANGEL IS LIGHT IN
    ACTION. HE IS CALLED A LIAR & DECEIVER. IN JAMES I V 14 THE WORD
    “ENTICE>(SATAN USES THIS TO HELP MAKE ONE WITH LUST(extreme desire
    fo fulfill some appetite.) TO ACT ON IT (like Eve). SATAN CONVERSED WITH GOD ABOUT JOB. SATAN TRIED TO ENTICE JESUS ON 3 ACCOUNTS.

    I HAVE DISCUSSED WITH PAT WHY SHE SAID SATAN AS AN ANGEL OF LIGHT:
    2nd Cor. 11 vs 11 12-15 (Amplified) (He will continue to maintain his ministry) IN ORDER
    TO CUT OFF THE CLAIM THAT OTHERS WOULD LIKE TO FIND AND OCCASION
    TO CLAIM IN THEIR BOASTED (that they work the same as he) SUCH MEN ARE
    FALSE APOSTLES MASQUERADING AS APOSTLES. OF CHRIST. AND IT IS NO WONDER FOR SATAN MASQUERADES AS AN ANGEL OF LIGHT. SO, IT IS NOT
    SURPRISING IF HIS SERVANTS ALSO MASQUERADE AS MINISTERS OF
    RIGHTEOUSNESS (but their end will correspond with their deeds.)

    THE KEY ABOVE IS “FALSE TEACHERS.” SO, WE NEED TO FOLLOW John 8 v 32;
    “IF YE ABIDE IN ME AND MY WORDS ABIDE IN YOU. (YOU SHALL KNOW THE
    TRUTH AND THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE!) conditions: ABIDE IN CHRIST AND HIS WORD ABIDE IN YOU! There is a brother LAWRENCE who is known for PRACTICING THE PRESENCE ALL DAY LONG. Song “BLESSED ASSURANCE’ chorus:
    “THIS IS MY STORY! THIS IS MY SONG: PRAISING MY SAVIOR, ALL THE DAY
    LONG1” Is. 26 v 3 “THOU WILL KEEP HIM IN PEACE WHOSE( MIND IS STAYED
    ON THEE:) Another thing we should do is PRAY FOR THE GIFT OF (DISCERNMENT).
