Divine Order is Light - Part 1
Let There Be Absolute Light
Divine Order is a heavenly directive and mandate; full of good, and godly instructions, commands and imperatives, which are necessary for us to be aligned and functional, in the movement of natural order, and is the corrective power to destroy chaos, and disorder in our lives. Divine order means to be directed by the Creator's absolute light.
The Bible is our manual so to speak for living, everything we need to know and how to do it is in the instructions in this great book. Jesus would not have said that He came to give us life and not teach us how to live the abundant life.
Respect for the Creator as the creature, is the key. Respect for the divine order of the Creator's authority, and His Word, and Spirit will heal, and produce what is necessary to deflect all darkness, and it will help us to live in the abundance of natural order. Divine order is what the scriptures implies, suggests, advises, and demonstrates, that God has, and that He is the supreme authority over.
What God has created and set in motion you and I cannot interrupt. We must discover the way that God does things and come in alignment with it. We are living in a universe of laws governed by a system of order, these are laws and principles that guide the universe. Laws are spiritual; every law that guides and governs God's creation is spiritual in nature. Why? God is a Spirit so these laws have been birthed by Spirit, but they influence the physical and natural realm. God through His Word is teaching us to look at things that are not seen in order to understand the things that are seen. God calls those things that be not as though they were.
Your reality is not confined to what science can touch and measure. When we get saved our reality expands and becomes aware and sensitive that there is a realm called spirit; and that it is moving, doing and active around us. We can't see it with our natural eyes, we can only perceive it with spiritual perception and discernment. Once you embrace this truth and live in it, you never feel alone. You live in constant awareness that God is present with you, and you don't need something physical and tangible to happen to convince you, because there is something deep and profound inside of you, deeply rooted and planted by God which sensitizes you that He is there no matter what you are going through, that you will never again experience it alone.
Reverence for the Creator happens when we realize that He created all things and we are His creation, and that divine order is His directive. It is a relationship that materializes and is experiential and operative, as we live in knowing that it spells Creator and creature, not creature worship and serve creature. There must be a line of demarcation. It is perceiving His greatness and respecting it.
"Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen" (Romans 1:25 KJV).
Obedience to divine protocol is the adherence to divine order and all that it inspires. It is a code of conduct and behavior that is of a higher standard. It is etiquette, decorum, and moral excellence in operation under the Creator's authority and rule. In the earthly realm we learn to adhere to protocol in the workplace and we do what it requires for things to work correctly and so that we are not insubordinate to established authorities in the workplace. This being experientially true, how much more are we called to within the realms of divine order.
All the influences of God are divinely ordered and fashioned according to His will. He does all things decently and in order. We learn that He is a God of order and that divine is His nature. At this time in my life I am learning how crucial it is to respect His divine order.
I have a high opinion and I esteem the order of God, as being supreme, meaning that all other attempts in the name of order, are inadequate and inferior to God. Order is used in the earth and is methodically capable of providing necessary mandates for organization, singular and plural. Yet, only divine order makes sense because it goes back to the origin and the source base, the Creator.
The Lord God Almighty, is the Creator of all things which consist, and is who established divine order first in heaven, after that on every sphere, dimension and realm. But it only works by His divine influence in the earth. It is essential so that natural order can be effective. Divine order is the characteristic and aspect we understand and know, as decently and in order. It is what holds the universe in order, and it is His majesty and sovereignty.
It is what makes Him Elohim (God), Jehovah (Lord, God), Adonai (Lord), El Shaddai (God Almighty), El Elyon (Most High God), and El Olam (Everlasting God.) All of these are descriptive titles/names which give us an idea of Who God is at certain times, so that we will recognize and know Him in every situation.
The Creator first established divine order in heaven by settling His Word there forever. (Psalm 119:89). His will is the authoritative directive for all the inhabitants of heaven. We are taught that no creature moves without complete obedience to the will of the Creator there, it is heaven’s directive to perform only the will of God and nothing can ever stop them.
“Therefore rejoice ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time” (Revelation 12:12 KJV).
It is important to see this divine compilation of oneness of heaven, and the synchronized order and rhythm, so that we can move on into who is in authority, and what that really entails over our lives. There is no authority higher than the Creator’s. He has creative rights over all creation, and all are subject to obey only Him. No creature has the legal right to choose anything, other than what He decrees. Any creature that opposes the Creator’s order, are in violation of creative rights, because they could not, and cannot ever create their own lives, and the attempt to tamper with what, is set in motion under divine directives for life; that creature would introduce and permeate death spiritually, until it would trickle down into the natural. The devil and demons are not our authority; they don’t have any right to dominion over us, because Jesus spoiled all of their illegal power.
Divine Order Is Pivotal
Focus is fundamental, it keeps us looking up, knowing that is where divine order is flowing from, it comes from above.
Permissive rights were pulled from under the dome of divinity, and illegally obtained by those who chose sin, and all that it seemed to offer. The whole world system now functions under illegal, and unlawful means. There is no historical evidence of any creature ever having asked the Creator for the right, and permission to build or create under the auspices of divine order. Men were taught how to go pass needing permission to operate the world system, and to use everything in the earth, they have not created and build without certification. By build without certification, I mean, not to ask the Creator for permission to build.
Man has a working knowledge and has learned the importance of being granted permission in various capacities within the world system, but not under divine order. Natural order can't influence divine order, it can only be influenced by divine order. Certification to do anything is needed in the world system, certain departments and bureaus are set up within the world system structure, for the issuance of the papers needed to comply which require building codes. Yet, every entity in the earth has implemented measures in which certification to operate must be obtained, except when it comes to God.
Permission must be first requested, and granted, to build and to operate in accordance with prescribed authorities. I wonder how many of these in earthly authorities, have asked or requested the Creator's permission to build in the earth He created. Wouldn’t that be an illegal and unlawful maneuver, and strategy? Who do you think they got their knowledge to transgress from? You will have to answer that question for yourself. There are those throughout time who knew how to ask and I am sure that they did through prayer, early Americans founded the country on "In God we trust" however it would be presumptuous to conclude that permission to build here in this land was requested by turning of events and the way things are going, and have gone in the past,
I was listening to a teaching recently and these words were so revelatory. If "it" meaning (ideas, intentions, you name it and claim it), was not birthed in prayer, where we legally ask of the Creator permission, then it is illegal. When we desire anything from anyone in the earth we ask them for it, when we desire something from or to use anything He created, we ask Him in prayer. One of the many attributes of prayer is asking for permission to be granted for our requests.
We Need Natural Order Too
Just imagine for a moment creatures existing more than six thousand years, in a world and universe which they have not created or had any part in creation and their actions offend God and they do not care or repent, you do the math as to how much sin is in their account; they were here before the earth was formed, but I do not have a precise timing, so I’ll go with the approximation of time by the early scholars.
Another point to drive home concerns divine order that the angelic hosts was formed in, before they disobeyed it and became demons. Here you have creatures that had not acquired or learned respect for divine order, and are in a spiritual form, and are reserved under the darkness, in a state of un-repentance.
We are in flesh which decays systemically and will eventually die, they are in a spiritual eternal state of darkness. Eternal meaning, they will dwell in spiritual death forever. In that, they were not given the right to choice, as we know it, and they were not compliant to the divine order willed by God. If we don’t learn anything else from the existence of these now fallen creatures, we should learn that we too were and are not exempt from the fall, some backslide too.
Lack of respect and trust in the Creator always leads to ill regard for divine order. Adam and Eve also were not exempt from not being in agreement or alignment with their newly positioning under divine order. In fact, the serpent was there to engineer these new beings disobedience; he knew how to manipulate their fall and all who would follow.
The devil and demons used their positions in the spirit realm against man and woman, they knew the spiritual was a higher realm than the natural realm, where flesh was positioned, and they used their spiritual rank over flesh. We as human beings are subject to order, whether we like or not. Order is the aspect we need on very level in this life; in all our ways we need orderly conduct. In all your way ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths.
There are places and spaces in this life where we are subject to take orders, and abide by them, and even at times to give them. There is law and order, we as citizens realize what breaking the established law will bring, and we use every careful measure to abide by the laws of the land, and thus fulfill the demand of order. We learn to respect the laws and to comply with the order it emulates.
God was the first to introduce law and the order, and what it was capable of producing if adhered to, because the flesh was not able to keep the law, didn’t and nor does it make it void of producing orderly conduct, behavior and characteristics. It is just that the Spirit gives life and grants ease towards obedience. The life the Spirit gives helps us to adhere to and comply with divine order.
It is only because of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God that we will be able to know and experience divine order.
“Forever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven” (Psalm 119:89 KJV).
“Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10 KJV).
The Word of God is settled forever in heaven, which is the establishment of divine order, orchestrated by God that ensures everything and all creatures operate perfectly. God dwells in excellence. Divine order affects natural order. We had a human spirit which knew natural aspects, but didn’t know the spiritual or God.
When we are born again our spirits are and can then affect our natural order (flesh), so that it comes into alignment with the divine or the Kingdom of heaven and begin to operate in accordance with how heaven does. The Word of God begins to strategically organize our lives to settle God’s Word in us, so that it is done in the earth as it is in heaven. The Spirit of God teaches us how to walk in holiness, righteousness, and all of the attributes that heaven operates by. Divine order is something we must see and understand, to assist us in the transformation process.
What do these verses communicate to your spirit and soul? They tell me that the Word of God is settled in heaven forever, and that there is absolute divine order in operation there, and that the same is applicable in the earth and the Kingdom of God and Heaven are near. Every creature is functioning in and in alignment with God’s divine order in heaven. You may say, we are in the earth. We are learning how to settle the Word of God experientially in our lives. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Yes, we are positioned in the earth, but we are seated in heavenly places with Christ, and we receive divine revelation on how to live in accordance with divine order, as we sojourn here and occupy until He returns. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus, which is a mind of divine order and agreement with the will of the Father.
These verses carry a serious, and sober sentence. They were once angels who have now been changed into the devil and demons. Their first habitation was with the Creator, created in the light, but they decided to revoke their life with Him; and to choose sin and darkness instead. This is not an option that the angelic host had, and thereby ushered them into leaving their first estate and habitation. They are now reserved and set apart in everlasting chains of darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
All creation awaits judgment by God, however not all will have to await it under the same measure of darkness. For this hosts waiting judgment consists of total darkness. They are at work in the lives of the unsaved, which still have a chance, because they are not yet consumed by absolute darkness, but still have the ability to see light at any moment. Every second of the day sinners’ lights come on, and seeing God emerges and transports them out of darkness, into the light through salvation through Jesus Christ.
“How are thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most high. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit” (Isaiah 14:12 KJV).
Divine Order is in full operation in heaven and is the directive and mandate for holy living; and it should operate in the earth on the same principle of the Word of God being settled in our lives continuously as we obey the same godly instruction, under a decree of commands and imperatives which are the authority over our born again lives. The principles and precepts in the Scriptures are the instructions which govern our lives.
All authority comes from God and He delegates it to those He places in authority. This knowledge of authority is being revealed in and throughout the earth. The ability to use it against and not for the wellbeing of others, is no doubt in effect too. Power qualifies authority, God is omnipotent and all powerful, He is El Shaddai (God Almighty) and inherent in that power is His right to all authority too.
The Creator's authority is one that we can trust, and it grants us the power to rest in His loving care. There is power in the name of Jesus, meaning the authority placed in that name is in accordance with divine order and is backed by God the Father. There is no other name that has divine and natural authority. At the name of Jesus all bow, we bow and ever live to bow and all of the works of the devil and demons must bow at the name of Jesus, because there is authority in no other name but His.
Prayer Is The Perfect Path To All Order
We may have received historical accounts of how organizations were formed throughout our lifespan, but are they worthy of our utmost attention? God is worthy of my attention, affections, and the time it takes in the here and now, to make new discoveries in how divine order works and the practical applications that are necessary to fulfill its purpose in and through my life on earth.
First and foremost, a respect and reverence for God has to precede appreciation of His divine order on every level, realm and dimension. How can we respect whom we do not have a working knowledge of? Appreciation can only follow respect of divinity. We can learn from many situations and we are not limited to only one, because there are myriads of examples in this life, and in each of our lives.
Sin filled the devil mind while he was still where divine order poured like rain. He seduced around 1/3 of what was once part of the angelic hosts and engineered their fall and until now they have been exiled from their first estate in heaven. The chain reaction of wills in disobedient defiance, brought about the first acts in the entire universe to openly reject divine order, which is high reason in the heavenlies, that ricocheted rebellion and resonated as an alarm during a fire drill the exiting of the satanic and demonic hosts from under the rule or divine and order and automatically placed them in disorder positioning them to go and cause chaos in the firmament and atmospheres between heaven and earth and they have been reserved under chains of darkness for judgment.
“And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains of darkness unto the judgment of the great day” (Jude 1:6 KJV).
Sin canceled the absolute adherence we needed for absolute obedience and conformity in the fallen host and mankind. We had the same ability to do the will of God as the angels in heaven until sin, only we as humans would have been able to perform it in the earth and natural order would have been perfect. Sin set in motion defiance in the universe and every creature except for the angels who kept their first estate, we were removed out of the free flow of divine order to a state of disorder and will have to learn respect for all kinds of order. Sin could not cancel divine order, it could only halt and stop it from being an automatic and toil free reality to us, which now points us in the direction of the grace of God, which we are endowed with. We don’t deserve grace and nothing we can do good or otherwise will make it something we can ever merit, because it is unmerited favor.
Only the Creator in His sovereignty knows why He blesses mankind with the gifts of mercy, love and grace; and reserves the fallen host in chains of darkness until judgment. This is a reason to be grateful and thankful for the riches of His glory. Another pivotal point is repentance, we were and are given the heart, and mind to repent and we accept that as part of our born again lifestyles, the fallen host is in an un-repentant state and have never and it is not likely that they will ever repent to God for their sins and the disorder they have caused in the universe.
Case in point, the next time you don’t feel it necessary to repent of your trespasses, just remember whose side you are really on, yep! He is un-repentant to date, and so are his demons and all who take his side by rejecting God’s side, through Jesus Christ. Beware of the darkness of un-repentance, the roots of bitterness, jealousy, strife, the inability to want good for others, and all ill-will towards others, lest you may be slipping into darkness. I truly understand why the Word of God admonishes us to judge ourselves and watch out for slippery slopes, which can lead to a reprobate mind, void of judgment. Divine order mandates judgment of self. Beware of the darkness! By choosing divine order to light your path. I leave you with this question, do you know Him as the Creator? Grace and Peace.
