For the next few days, we will be discussing the nature of light and what it means to be lit up. 1 John 1:5 says that God is light. The colour of pure light is white, but when you pass it through a glass prism, it breaks up into the seven colours of the rainbow – Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet. For this series, however, I’ll focus on the colours red, yellow, green and blue.
Red is the colour of danger. Hebrews 12:29 says that God is a Consuming Fire, meaning that God is indeed powerful and not someone to be toyed with. If you don’t believe me, ask Pharaoh. When you carry the light of God in you, you become a danger to the enemy. That is why 1 Chronicle 16:22 says, “Touch not mine anointed and do my prophets no harm”.
Red is also the colour of blood and Revelation 12:11 says that the saints overcame Satan by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony. There is so much power in the blood of the Lamb that you can use it to overcome Satan. The red in the light of God within you will make you dangerous and give you the power to overcome the devil. Red also signifies the stop sign. When the traffic light goes red, you know you have to stop (Exodus 12:23).
Once you are lit up by the light of God, when evil sees you, it will stop. Some years ago, a woman came to me and said money kept disappearing from their house. Initially, she and her husband suspected each other of stealing the money until one day, they confronted each other and discovered that neither of them was the culprit. This meant they were in real trouble. I understood what was happening immediately, especially because the husband used to be deep in the occult before he became a Christian.
I then told them that they should always cover their money with the blood of Jesus so that anytime the devil came to steal it, he would find the blood of Jesus covering it and leave. From that day on, they never lost anything again. When you carry the light of God, you become dangerous to the enemy.
