Paul Severed to: Celestial Enlightenment

Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness (I Thessalonians 5:5).

Webster’s definition of “horizon” continues,

the eastern is that wherein the sun and stars rise; the western, that wherein they set

The horizon is also associated with the contrasts of day and night, light and darkness. Paul was separated from the darkness of this Adamic world and brought into the glorious light of God’s full revelation of righteousness.

By revelation from God, Paul opened up new divinely-appointed horizons for mankind. God’s masterful plan for mankind was fully revealed through His servant, Paul. We, like Paul, have been cut off from our former horizon, from our former sphere – or hemisphere. God has horizoned us out from our former identity and horizoned us into full identity in Christ – in a circumference of a new life – in the circumference of a loving Father and His concerns.

We now see God in a whole new way; in an entirely different sphere. We, in turn, see ourselves and all those around us in a completely fresh, vibrant light – Sonlight to be precise.

For God, Who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ (II Corinthians 4:6).

Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His Own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, but is now made manifest by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, Who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel (II Timothy 1:9-10).

Giving thanks unto the Father, Who hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light, Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son (Colossians 1:12-13).

We, along with Paul, have been “separated unto the gospel of God.” We have been horizoned-off unto His glorious world-wide, all-inclusive, good news!

Now, along with Paul, we have also been entrusted with this early enlightenment, of which all mankind will one day partake. We are just the beginning of God’s horizoned-off ones!

… The true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world (John 1:9).
