Let There Be Light

The fifth day grace this season (Chanukah and otherwise) is to remind everybody that there’s light in everything that exists. Whether one believes in the Bible or not, “Let there be light” (Gen 1:3) is a reality.  

Path- Trees SunraysAsk scientists. Look at the molecular or sub-atomic level, and take a journey back to that primordial “hayah” (i.e., haiah) state. Hayah is a Hebrew verb that carries the meaning: to be, become, exist, arise, appear, abide, rest, remain stand, and accompany (be with). In Exodus 3:14, we are told: “God said to Moses, ‘I AM WHO I AM.’ ” In the original Hebrew, it’s translated “I will be who I will be” – HAYAH. This Hayah State of Being concept is reflected in the three “let there be” statements in Genesis chapter 1:

  • “Then God said, ‘Let there be light’…” (Gen 1:3)
  • “Then God said, ‘Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters…’ ” (Gen 1:6)
  • “Then God said, ‘Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens…’ ” (Gen 1:14-15)

Spinning-LightOur understanding of hayah can reach as high as the heavens. He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, And light dwells with Him” (Dan 2:22 NKJV). Or our understanding of hayah can be simplified into a righteous State of Being that resonates at the same frequency in which it was originally created. This is what I meant when I declared yesterday: “Just as His creation began with His command ‘Let there be light,’ so will His Kingdom.” God wants everything to be redeemed and restored to the pristine state that He originally created. He wants us to go back to Eden and beyond. There’s something so mysterious in this notion, so let’s dig a little deeper.

My son, who’s in college and taking Hebrew as part of his archeology studies, tells me that hayah is a unique verb. It carries a meaning in the past of what was done. Hayah carries a meaning in the future of what will be done, but a presence tense does not exist for this verb. Instead, it is given that the verb “to be” is just there. It’s who you are, like “I Robin” the “am” in “I am Robin” is already understood to exist, and it manifests in what a person is actually doing. This is all of our present reality.

Lights - TentWhen someone  doesn’t do what they say, we all know that they’re a hypocrite. All of us on some level are hypocrites where we truly believe that we are something that we are not (presently manifesting). The Bible articulates that the light within us can be darkness (Matt 6:23).

“Again, a new commandment I write to you, which thing is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away, and the true light is already shining. He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now. He who loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no cause for stumbling in him. But he who hates his brother is in darkness and walks in darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes” (1 John 2:8-11 NKJV).

Sky Heart Illuminating MtnThe frequency of our righteous State of Being can be simplified even more into the lowest common denominator of life – love. Many years ago, I was shown a couple wonders in the Spirit. First, I saw a sphere or ball of knives rolling and spinning through the air. No two blades were the same. Many of the shapes I had never seen before. I asked what this ball of knives was and was told, “Divine love.” As I looked on, it cut through a shroud of darkness in the atmosphere and glorious light rays began to stream through. Then another time, Jesus told me that He wanted to show me something about the Father.  These iridescent shards of light began to shoot through the air. I was looking on in awe, because the beauty was indescribable.  Then I heard the phrase: “Just as the physical world is founded upon the waters, so is the spiritual world founded upon the Father’s love.” Since then I have discovered that the Hebrew word for love is ahav. Its pictograph literally tells us that love is the Father’s heart revealed.

Mother with childrenLove is a universal currency, which has no fiscal cliff or otherwise, because it’s an eternal commodity. 1 Corinthians 13 tells us that we are nothing without love, and that love never ever fails. I want to challenge everyone during this miraculous time of the Winter One-der-land (see http://wp.me/p158HG-aH ) to strive to resonate at the same frequency of the perfect hayah – “I am who I am”.

This is one of the takeaways that’s pictured in the Chanukah story. When Judah the Maccabee and company overcame overwhelming odds as they battled the forces of darkness, they were defeating the things that would cause their light to be less than hayah. When they chose to go up to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem to clean and re-dedicate their temple, they were choosing to align themselves with a higher consciousness and way than themselves. They were choosing to perfectly be. Let there be light!

About Robin Main

Robin's premier quest is to love people and love God with all her heart, soul & strength, because without love we all are nothing. After making a vow to Jesus's face during a personal epiphaneous appearance, she wrote a book -- SANTA-TIZING: What's wrong with Christmas and how to clean it up" to share the mysteries she discovered while searching for where Christmas comes from. There are revelations in SANTATIZING that you will not find anywhere else. So throw away the template for Christmas books and come walk on the kingdom side in an examination of America's most loved holiday. Critical thinking is a must while looking through this lens of history and Scripture. You'll be intrigued and enlightened. What's wrong with Christmas? Plenty. This book shines light on various troubling issues in celebrating a Christian Christmas. How to clean it up? This will be determined by you and your family. Since we have an abundance of traditions, memories, and reasons to stay just the way we are (and possibly miss out on becoming part of His Pure & Spotless Bride), SANTA-TIZING primarily explores the valley of the shadows. Please know that in God's Kingdom no person is forced to do anything against their will. Give em heaven!!!

  1. What’s up it’s me, I am also visiting this web page regularly, this site is in fact good and the viewers are actually sharing fastidious thoughts.

  2. I enjoy reading a post that can make people think.
    Also, thanks for allowing me to comment!

  3. Wow, Light in ALL things! How awesome is that! Beautiful article and focus. I’ve preferred Hanukkah over Christmas since I began discovering the Hebrew roots of Christianity through a study of Messianic Judaism. The depth of my walk with Yahveh is constantly renewed, and I love when He leads me to yet another of the remnant who seek Him in ways of more purity and less religiosity. I’m very interested in your book & will be going to look more at it after this post.

    And, speaking of books, I think you may like a book and Bible study I began some years ago by Terrye Goldblum Seedman. The book is called “Holy to Yahveh” and her radio program is called “In YahShua’s Name.” I have a lesson on cassette where she speaks about the power in HaYah and His memorial name. I found an excerpt of the book on her website, and if the link I place doesn’t take you directly to the excerpt, just find the heading that says “excerpts” and read the first one: http://yahveh.com/excerpts/?t=22 I brought this up because already knowing HaYah, and then reading your statements above showing how He is in all things in the midst of the waters and the expanse of the heavens, just blessed me more than you know.

    Hi Robin-
    As Christians we are sincere and persevere to follow the Lord in our life. As Christians we know Jesus is Man’s true physical encounter with the manifestation of God on Earth and the Personification of Love. As described we will seem hypocritical at times. This is because people look at us seeking the ‘hayah’-what will be done rather that what God has already done in us. We are judged as if we are already perfected.

    Sorry for the long comment. You got me thinking this early Saturday. I truly believe love is the spiritual beginning as God intended. It all starts when we summit to Jesus who IS love:

    “..neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord” Rom 8:39

    Glad we met! Nice post. look forward to many more. I hope you can visit: emanatingjoy.wordpress,com

      Love to get those synapses firing!!!

      I agree with your profound statement: “people look at us seeking the ‘hayah’ – what will be done rather that what God has already done in us” with a caveat: In order for each of us to more perfectly manifest the already perfectly resonating “hayah” of God, we must act righteously to line up with His Spirit & Truth. This point has been minimized in the past, but in this Kingdom Day, God’s people will all be known for our loving actions toward everyone. Revelation 12:17 & Revelation 14:12 speaks of the perseverance of the end-time saints in terms of those who have faith in Jesus AND keep the commandments of God (in a Spirit-led way, not legalistically).

      When we choose selfish or sensual ways, we are not perfectly aligned with “hayah.” Just like sickness in our body causes us to resonate at a lower frequency than health, so goes it with sin. Christians need to be careful not to confuse our heavenly position with our earthly condition. Our maturity in Christ is determined by the later. The fullness of the stature of Christ in you and me is a measure of our earthly condition — what we are literally manifesting on earth.

      I definitely will check out your blog! Give em heaven!!!

      • Rick Stassi says:

        It is the straight walk in seeking His perfecting will, seeing it as He reveals it to us, and responding to Him. So many see and hear but fail to respond. Our response to His call and our steadfast walk to Him will make our hearts shine in the *present* with His emanating Light and Love. Our present walk is the bridge from the “work He began in us” to the perfected, glorified souls we will be in heaven. To His glory.
