This then is the message which we have heard of Him, and declare unto you, that God is Light, and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and “do” not the truth: But if we walk in The Light as He is in The Light, then we have fellowship with one another… 1 John 1:5-7 (emphasis mine).
The scripture above drives home a central message, which is that the entire essence of the gospel of the kingdom of God and the agenda of heaven on earth by us, is the revelation of a union forged in “The Light “ otherwise referred to as “fellowship”. This is the core element which informed the concept of the creation of mankind in the heart of the Father through Jesus Christ. But, as established in our previous articles, fellowship goes beyond a gathering of fellows who call on the name of God and expect some sort of manifestations of the Spirit or impartations and also the meeting of people’s spiritual and physical needs.
According to this scripture, fellowship is referred to as a “walk” as well as an action; in other words, fellowship is a verb or a reality which involves some sort of active participation from all parties involved. But the only way we can understand the kind of activities required to meet the standard of fellowship as ordained by The One who calls the shots, is by understanding the purpose of Light from the foundational definition standpoint. This is revealed in the gospel according to John.
… In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in darkness and the darkness comprehended it not. John 1:4-5.
It is clear from the above scripture that the revelation of the light of God’s glory, was and still is a divine strategy for the transmission of the God-life into all of His creation; while mankind is the conduit through which this light is meant to dispel the darkness that has corrupted a vast proportion of the creation of God, and this warfare will have its culmination in the final return and full revelation of the King of glory.

Therefore if the primary essence of light is for the transmission of life, then this life is the key to the redemption of creation from the spirit of death and darkness. Also, if we are admonished to “walk” in this Light in other to establish fellowship, then the concept of fellowship is about us taking a disposition that will allow for us to access, custody and retain the light which He transmits to us successions, discern our individual configurations which will allow for us to become effective transmitters of same, and then learn how to transmit same by faith within the context of our delineated jurisdictions out of heaven per time for the redemption of mankind, whole spheres and systems, territories, nations and all of creation. Hallelujah!
But in other for us to become not just people who are an embodiment of these administrations, but custodians of this reality as a lifestyle, the administration of this Life-Light value-system must first of all be entrenched in our consciousness as the new-normal; this means that we must take a disposition in life, in which we shall consciously and consistently begin to interpret all of our reality from our status in Light, because that is our identity. See Matthew 5:14. Understanding our identity not just as light bearers but as beings born of Light, communicates the simplicity of manifesting our true nature as light beings: for we do not practice our first nature, we simply live it out.
Therefore from the realms of our consciousness, to our motives, thoughts, aspirations, inclinations and decisions etc.; when all of these are submitted to the life-light reality in fellowship, then we will have a society of kingdom citizens whose sense of value and worth will be tied to how much light we have transmitted as the legitimate currency approved of God for the restoration of God’s order in people’s lives as well as ours and our society at large.
