6. The Sons are the lesser lights and the planting of the Lord
The Gospel of John and Sonship Session 6
In him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. John 1:4-5 KJV
We have looked into the relationship between Solar System in which we live and Sonship System, this is in our previous lesson. We have noticed how the solar system was created on the fourth day of creation and we concluded that the Sonship System was Running from day one as the First Light.
Solar System is a process in which our nine known planets are Revolving around the Sun (Sol). Therefore the lesser lights are revolving around the bigger light. We are the lesser lights revolving around the Bigger Light. This is Sonship.
In Sonship, there are Sons that are Revolving around the Father of Lights as we have spoken in the previous sessions.
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 9:6 KJV
In this one verse Jesus is shown as a Child, then a Son, and eventually The Everlasting Father. Therefore the Twelve Disciples became the “twelve planets” revolving around The Son and they were the sons revolving around The Everlasting Father.
The Solar System is a daily reminder to us that we are sons who are to Revolve around the Everlasting Father. John prepares us by giving a picture of Life which is the Light of Men.
I want to remind you about what you have learned in Primary School. You have learned about Photosynthesis. We studied how the sun gave both life and light to the plants. These plants would get the light energy that would help them manufacture sugar through water and carbon dioxide.
To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.
Isaiah 61:3 KJV:-)
We are the planting of the Lord The Trees of Righteousness.
I desire to reach out to new believers to say just as the Sun does to the plants of the earth so is The Son’s working within us giving this Life which is Light.
This is a very important illustration that we need to fully embrace as new believers.
And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me. And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth?
Genesis 37:9-10 KJV
I put this scripture to you to remind you that God our Father has always used the Solar System as a lesson that we need to have as an example of a Kingdom or Family that worked according to God’s Kingdom.
I intend to show you further in the next session the deeper meaning of Sonship through the Solar System.
