The Form of Light

The Bible tells us that God is “light”, a “consuming fire”, and that “God is love.” If God is light, then what form would that light be in? We do not usually consider, or think that light would have any kind of form at all because light shines in all directions, depending on the shape of that light.

Surely God has a form or a shape that can be seen, or we would never be able to see him!!! Jesus said at one time....

John 5:37 And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, NOR SEEN HIS SHAPE.

We know that God's presence is every where, and that there is no were we can go to get away from his presence.

Jer 23:24 Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. DO NOT I FILL HEAVEN AND EARTH? SAITH THE LORD.

Psa 139:7 Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or WHERE SHALL I FLEE FROM YOUR PRESENCE?
Psa 139:8 IF I ASCEND TO HEAVEN, YOU ARE THERE! IF I MAKE MY BED IN SHEOL, YOU ARE THERE!

We must not think God is some great big “GIANT”, that is filling the universe.Yes, God does fill the universe, but not with his form, only with his presence as his light streams outward in all directions from his person.

We are living in the “presence” of the sun as the earth orbits around it in our solar system, but the sun is not here on earth, as it is millions of miles away, but it's presence (it's light) has an effect on everything!!!

When a light shines, it shines every where, and everything with in it's path also reflects that light. This is exactly how physical light works in this world. When light strikes an object, that object becomes visible to our eyes. The Bible tells us that spiritual light is very similar to physical light. The only difference is that physical light reveals physical things, and spiritual light reveals spiritual things.

Eph 5:13 But when anything is exposed by the light, it becomes visible,
Eph 5:14 for anything that becomes visible is light. Therefore it says, “Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” (ESV)

Does God (light) have a form? Speaking of Jesus Christ in the book of Hebrews chapter one it says....

Heb 1:3 WHO BEING THE BRIGHTNESS OF HIS GLORY, AND THE EXPRESS IMAGE OF HIS PERSON, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

We also have in the book of Colossians it says, speaking of Jesus Christ....

Col 2:9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead BODILY.

The book of Hebrews tells us that Jesus Christ is the “.....BRIGHTNESS OF HIS (God's) GLORY, AND THE EXPRESS IMAGE OF HIS PERSON...." Another Bible translation says it this way...

Heb 1:3 HE IS THE SOLE EXPRESSION OF THE GLORY OF GOD [the Light-being, the out-raying or radiance of the divine], and HE IS THE PERFECT IMPRINT AND VERY IMAGE OF [GOD'S] NATURE.... (AMP)

God does have a “BODY”, and Jesus Christ is the very image (shape) of God. Jesus is the brightness of God's Glory. He is the Glory of the Father. The shape and form of God, who is light is Jesus Christ himself!!!

Jesus is the one who gives us “vision” because he is light, so we can behold the Kingdom in which we have been translated into!!!

No wonder Jesus said, “unless a man become born again he can NOT see the Kingdom of God....”(John 3:3)
