Nothing inspires creativity like light. Before the beginning began, the creator of the entire universe lived and dwelt in eternity. Eternity means a region not bounded by time. He stood on nothing and was standing next to nothing as far as reasoning in time is concerned. He created for himself companions that reflected His glory in that timeless region. In the beginning, He created heaven and earth. This means that while in the timeless region, He caught an idea of heaven and earth and went ahead to create it. We were told that earth was without form and void and darkness was upon the face of the deep. Why was earth like that? We were not told that about heaven.
This means heaven was with form, full and had light. It was like a cup full of juice on one side and an empty cup on the other side. Heaven was full of juice, while earth was empty. Everything earth needed and would ever need to take shape was loaded in heaven. Upon the face of the earth moved the Spirit of the Lord. The Spirit of the Lord when activated makes available on earth whatever is in heaven. Before building a house, you need an architect to make a design of what is to be built. Not only is a prototype put together, you also make available a store house for storing all that would be needed for the building. Heaven was the architectural design and also houses everything that would be needed to build earth.
Everything was hidden in heaven, but when God decided to begin the creation process, He activated first the most important thing in heaven and that was light. He said, “Let there be light and there was light.” What did He do? He looked into heaven, where light had been stored and activated it by His word. The switch that powers anything in heaven is voice activated. Heaven is full of keys or switches, which are activated by sound.
Everything we see today in our world is a product of light. Light is what generates life. In the beginning, God called for light and that light enabled Him to create all that gave earth shape. I also discovered that He created other lights. “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.” Gen 1:3-5. At this level, light was shining in the dark. It was the creator working with the light.
“And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.” Gen 1:15-19.
This is what resulted in what we know as Time. Time, according to Dr. Myles Munroe is an interruption in eternity. Time is a calibration of eternity. The first thing that God called for is what I call the higher light which is the light that generates other lights. It is the creator’s light. It is the light that gives value to the creative mind. It is inspired light. It is revelational knowledge. It is the light that confounds ignorance. It is a kingdom explosive that breaks through all barriers.
