1 John 1:7
But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
As I was praying themorning of 10/18/2016 I saw a vision. Imagine, if you will, a dark room. One in which you could see nothing at all. Now imagine being in such a room, peering out and seeing brilliant white light. I saw this in the vision. I remember reaching out of the room and and a hand grabbing me and pulling me into the light. Once there, I saw what I will call giant ticks on my body. However, once these creatures were exposed to the light, they fell off and retreated back into the darkness from whence they came. I remember feeling as though roots were being pulled out as these beings fell off and retreated. Light exposes not only sin but also wounds and offenses and while since can have roots I did not get the sense that this vision was all about sin. The word says that walking in the light enables one to have fellowship with Jesus and with one another. Church, i.e., ekklesia should be a place of safety and not a place of fear of being judged and condemned. Many walk with wounds but are afraid to come to Jesus or others for fear of being exposed.
Again the ekklesia of Jesus Christ should be a place where one feels safe and loved unconditionally.
