The lighthouse

A lighthouse is a tower, building or other type of structure designed to emit light from a system of lamps and lenses and is used as an aid to navigation for maritime pilots at sea or on inland waterways.

Lighthouses mark dangerous coastlines, hazardous shoals, reefs, safe entries to harbors and can also assist in aerial navigation. Once widely used, the number of operational lighthouses has declined due to the expense of maintenance and replacement by modern electronic navigational systems. (http://www. wikipedia. org)

"However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come." (John 16:13 NKJV)

The Holy Spirit was sent as a Helper to us so we would be able to separate the truth from the lie and to empower us to fight against all darkness. Unfortunately, we usually see servants being shipwrecked and falling down in their faith by ignoring the leadership of the Holy Spirit.

He knows when danger lies in our way. He knows the safe route to take. He has full knowledge of what we need in our lives and what we should remove from our hearts. Trying to live by faith, without the guidance of the Holy Spirit, can be compared to the maritime pilot who ignores the flashing lighthouse signals which warn that one is getting close to danger and about to crash on rocks.

Probably the Holy Spirit, as the lighthouse, has been flashing a for some time now. He is telling you danger is near. The rocks of lust, envy and addictions as well as other desires of the flesh are about to take you out of the water (faith) for good.

Be a prudent pilot and stop before it is too late. The light is flashing. The Holy Spirit is saying to you that it is time to listen and obey. May the Holy Spirit get your attention in good time!

As for the wise ones, keep observing the guidance of the Holy Spirit. He will never fail you. God's lighthouse is point out the limits. Watch out and be safe.

God bless you all
