“Ye are the light of the world.” This is a statement of identity.
As light, your jurisdiction is on the earth.
What is Light?
Light is illumination and revelation. It is what causes things that are hidden to become manifest.
Light brings clarity and understanding to diverse aspects of life.
What is Salt?
Salt is the substance that gives taste and preserves.
Matthew 5:13-16 (KJV)
13. Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savor, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
14. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.
15. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
“Let” signifies the act of legitimization, indicating that God necessitates the alignment of your will for the manifestation of your inner light.
It is your individual light that must shine, distinct from the light of God.
All lights hold significance in the eyes of God. The radiance you emit is pivotal to others, as you are obliged to showcase it, enabling others to see it.
As Christians, we bear the responsibility of illuminating any place we find ourselves in.
Because you are light in God’s grand design, you are not created to struggle or be invisible.
Through God’s design, we naturally radiate before others, thereby allowing His name to be exalted.
“And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;”
2 Corinthians 5:18 (KJV)
The Koinonia School of Ministry is not just to raise people in the five-fold ministry but to raise ministers across the seven mountains of influence.
As light, we must embody the quality of intensity, and as salt, we must possess the quality of flavor.
Light and salt are the weapons that Christ intended to be used, to influence these seven mountains.
As laborers in God’s kingdom, we are called to exert dominion over the seven mountains, thereby exerting our influence for the glory of God.
Seven (7) Mountains of Influence
1. The Mountain of Family
2. The Mountain of Education
3. The Mountain of Art & Entertainment
4. The Mountain of Media
5. The Mountain of Politics
6. The Mountain of Economy and Finance
7. The Mountain of Religion
There is no mountain that is empty. It would take Light and Salt in human form, for us to become what the Lord intends.
You do not have too little to be able to serve God. Your little jar of oil can go a long way to bless millions if you submit it to God.
Light can be:
(i) Present but not effective.
(ii) Present but with little effect.
(iii) Present and be highly effective.
You can be light and salt wherever you are.
Pray: Lord, grant us the grace and ability to become light and salt!
What is Value?
Value can be defined as the measure of our usefulness. It is the degree to which people perceive our usefulness and relevance.
What is Transformation?
Transformation means to change levels, usually from a lower level to a higher level.
It is the journey or process of becoming like Christ.
“And God said, Let us make man in Our image, after Our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.” Genesis 1:26 (KJV)
God rested because he made man. We are the strategy of God for dispelling darkness over the mountains of influence.
Ways to Achieve Transformation and Value:
1. Through the agency of The Word of God and in partnership with The Holy Spirit.
2. By adopting a methodical approach.
Follow and learn from individuals who have diligently pursued and attained transformation.
Notes on Transformation:
1. We must acknowledge the need for transformation.
2. Our transformation and value determines our intensity of impact, across the seven mountains.
3. What you are looking for is also looking for you, but it will only come to your transformed state.
There is a generation that is hungry for the light we carry.
Our place of usefulness as believers is in the world and not under the bushel.
As powerful as God is, He is at the mercy of our transformation and at the mercy of us allowing Him to find expression through our lives.
God has invested so much in every one of us so that we can become an extension of His plans and desires for mankind.
We let our light shine through genuine encounters with God’s Word and visions/dreams.
If the encounter is genuine, it will produce grace and correctness in the reflection of God’s identity.
Three (3) Categories of Men:
1. Men who possess true light. (John 1:9)
2. Men with corrupted light.
3. Men in absentia of light.
1. Father, give me light that changes everything.
2. Lord, illuminate me with Your light.
