A Vision of Light and Darkness!

Crystals are very significant! Crystals are God's own style of architecture in which He creates symmetry and crystals are found throughout Creation in all shapes. God appears to delight in creating order out of chaos!

When seawater evaporates, it leaves behind individual crystals of salt. All crystals are different, but they all have one thing in common: they all grow, atom by atom, molecule by molecule! Their basic design is pyramidical and they grow in spirals.

Crystals are all around us, but most are too small to be seen with the naked eye. Crystals are the basic form of actual mineral life and metals and precious jewels!

The basic design of all crystals is pyramidical! Pyramidical molecular crystals are the basic building blocks of the whole universe, from the lowly atom unto the Heavenly City! The basic design of the smallest molecule is pyramidical in structure, right on up to the Pyramid shape of the Crystal City! The Heavenly City is built like a pyramid! No wonder the Egyptians kept harping on pyramids and constructing pyramids as tombs for their kings!--They are symbols of Heaven hereafter!

It's just like everything in the World is alive!--Even rocks and minerals! everything is composed of crystals, because even the basic construction of all matter is the molecule, which is the basic material of everything, and it is a pyramid of atoms! In space city I saw so many of these cones and pyramids and spheres and spirals! Even the molecule, the very smallest of all materials, is arranged in a pyramidical pattern of atoms within the molecule!

(Vision:) I see a radioactive reflective crystal that glows with Light! "Behold, how beautiful and how brilliant is the light and the colour which radiates and emanates from the life within, that I have given unto the children of David!"--But the crystal has to stay in tune with this beautiful column that helps to support the temple roof, the glowing incandescent column which pulses with light, and the crystals pulse with light like they are connected to it. "how beautiful is the light that I have given unto my servant David, which these reflect and imbibe!"

It's like you pulse in tune with exactly the same rhythm as the Pillar, and as I glow, you glow, with the same pulsations and rhythm. (it's like making love!) It's like YOU'RE ACTIVATED BY THE POWER OF THE PILLAR! You're irresistibly drawn to it, like you have no will of your own. It is the Will of God that draws you, and you truly cannot resist! Eventually, sooner or later, you are drawn somehow.

But this dark Hand is holding on to you, trying to pull you back, closing around you out of the Darkness! But instead of that, this Dark Evil Creature itself is drawn irresistibly into the Light, which it cannot stand! It does not want or like the Light and the closer it gets to the Pillar the more unbearable the Light becomes!

This dark thing cannot stand the light nor the power and you're slipping out of its grasp, because it has to flee away from the Light, because the Light will destroy its Darkness!--And then you are joined to the pillar! (again it's like lovemaking: the more you pump together in the power of the spirit, the more you are freed from the impotency and frigidity and deadness of darkness, and the final spurts of the spirit in the power of the pillar causes you to bear fruit: The CHILDREN of LIGHT!

The crystals are like clusters of grapes--like ornaments around the pillar, like the entwinement of a grapevine that winds around the pillar and seems to love the pillar, and the crystals are now inseparably fastened to the pillar and glow simultaneously with the pulsations of the pillar!--So many clusters of grapes coming out of the darkness to the light and stuck on the pillar! Now the pillar is covered with them and completely out of sight and all you can see is these glowing crystals that glow with the light of the pillar! You can't see the pillar, but it's there and it still supports all those crystals, and you know that they're glowing with the pillar's light, because they pulse with that same rhythm, that beautiful glow of coloured light!

Despite all the dark hands that would hold the crystals back, the power and light within the pillar is so powerful that anything that tries to hold them back is dragged with them and by them and almost torn out of the darkness into the pillar! But these ugly creatures of darkness don't want to leave the darkness or be separated from the darkness, so they finally have to flee and let go and let the crystals go, to keep their darkness from being destroyed by the light!

Oh, the darkness is so angry! It’s furious! The darkness is raging because it's losing its grip on these crystals of light and it thunders and rages and it storms, but it can't put out the light, because it is afraid of the light! It can't put it out, because it can't even get close to it, because the light destroys it!

The darkness is all around and seems much larger than the light, and yet it can't overcome the light!--it can't put out the light! It tries to surround the light and cover it, but it can't put it out, because the darkness itself is destroyed by the light! Every time it comes close to the light or tries to attack the column or the crystals, it is destroyed by this terrific power!

It is impossible for the darkness to penetrate the light!--but the light penetrates the darkness with its sharp lightning beams!--and every time a lightning beam goes out, it brings back a jewel out of the darkness!

I’m not the light! I’m just the pillar. I’m just the lens through which the light shines, like by a projector in the darkness of a theater! The pillar shines like a prism. The beam of light that comes from heaven is focused like a laser beam on this jeweled pillar and refracts and spreads out and shows a vision like a picture on a screen!

All that darkness! Yet this piercing ray of brilliant light from the pillar strikes this crystal with its beam or spurt of light and brings it to life and it glows then with this light, not of itself, but from above, and it translates or diffuses the light, spreads it out, refracts it into a colourful spectrum like a rainbow and shows it right out there against the darkness!--and this colourful picture or vision just hangs right out there on nothing, like on a thin screen! And all the crystals turn and look at the picture and they like the picture and they understand the light!

Each of these little crystals also has its own little force-field, and anything that gets in its way, it destroys!--Anything that tries to stop or hinder or come between the crystal and the light and power of the pillar, is destroyed by even the light of each crystal! They are irresistibly drawn to the light and nothing can stop them!--nothing can stop them! "My sheep hear my voice and they follow me, and the stranger they will not follow!" Like the crystals know exactly where the light is and they're headed straight for the light, no matter what!--And there's nothing the darkness can do to prevent them, although it sure tries!

"For we have come from the darkness into his glorious light and that which was darkened has become enlightened and that which was in darkness has seen a great light!" (if these pull-outs of darkness do not receive the life of the light and become shining crystals or living children, they will remain black blobs of darkness, without life,--or, worse yet, once live crystals, if they go back into darkness, they're like dead, stillborn children!--We may later see them in heaven or elsewhere, but they'll be no good upon earth!

It’s so bright there on the temple mountain! The pillar opens at the top like a blossoming flower. The light streams down from heaven into the flower, filling the flower with light!--such brilliance! All you have to do is open your flower and let the light come in! Open the heart of the flower to the light and the light pours in and fills the whole flower and you glow with such radiance and colour and beauty! All you have to do is open! Let the light in!

Jesus is the light of the world! "and this is the condemnation, that men love darkness rather than light!" They have to make a choice. They see the light in its beauty and brilliance, but they have to be willing to give up their darkness or they cannot enjoy the blessings of the light's brilliance and radiance! We are captivated, and in a sense imprisoned by the light, but we are also protected by the light.

"Abide under the shadow of the almighty in the secret place! Abide under the brilliance, under the light underneath." God is overshadowing, but with light!--"He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most high shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty!" No darkness in that shadow! It’s like an aura of light, an area of diffusion of the light.--this shadow is light. In other words, like under this canopy it's all light.--God's shadow of light!

The blobs of sticky darkness would like to entice a cluster of crystals from the pillar and from the other clusters, because each cluster has greater power there with the other clusters surrounding the pillar. Outside of the cluster, away from the pillar, a crystal twists and turns and although it's not conquered by the darkness, yet it struggles and tries to free itself as it is being drawn from the darkness. But in the pillar with the other clusters each crystal has rest and peace. It has found freedom in total bondage to the light! It has found total freedom from the darkness in total union with the light!

While a crystal is out there in the darkness there is a terrific battle! The darkness cannot overcome it, but it batters it and buffets it like the wind, which has no substance yet blows and buffets and attempts to destroy it and blow it out. It is beaten about, yet is not destroyed. But there amongst the many clusters against the pillar, it finds rest. It finds peace and total unity with the other clusters in the pillar from which it had once been torn, plucked by the darkness, because it let go of the pillar!

As long as the crystals face the light and the pillar, they seem to absorb the light and they have strength and they glow brightly and are drawn toward it, and the darkness has no power over them! But if they turn their facets or faces away from the pillar, it is like a polarisation! The changed position in relation to the pillar seems to shut off some of the light and the light grows dim as the crystal turns away!

If it turns toward the darkness rather than the light, the crystal loses its brilliance and it's as though the darkness closes in and has greater power! As the light diminishes in the crystal, the darkness has more power to slow it down from being drawn into the pillar--even to be drawn away! The darker the crystal is, the more it is drawn by the darkness, as it faces the darkness! The moment it turns its face toward the light, it immediately begins to glow with the great brilliance of the light and power and is immediately drawn toward the pillar and the darkness has no power over it!

You must face the light! You dare not turn away from the light or look backward or you seem to lose the light! It seems like only your face is able to absorb the light. The crystal has to face the light in order to glow itself and to shine with such beauty, and especially the power in that light that drives off the darkness! The darkness flees in terror when the crystal glows! It is afraid of the power!

But if the crystal turns away from the light, as though it were trying to turn itself and fight the darkness in its own strength, it loses the light, and it has no power unless it focuses itself on the pillar and receives that beam of light! Every time it turns away it grows darker and its strength fades and wanes, as the light is diminished in trying to face the darkness instead of facing the light!

As long as it faces the light, it doesn't seem to have to exert any power itself at all, but the light gives it the power.--And as long as it faces the pillar with purpose and receives the light, it just glides right out of the darkness into the pillar! So your only hope is facing and absorbing his light and glowing with his power, and this causes you to glow. It causes you to generate terrific power, which drives back the darkness and leaves you free to glide with such ease toward the light, until all are joined in one!

The light shines and shines through these crystals and there are all these thousands of little rays of light scattered everywhere in the darkness and every beam from every little crystal is pulling in another crystal! At the end of every beam of light is another crystal that's being enlightened by it!--And the other crystals start to move toward the light, as though each beam of light makes a path through the darkness that each other crystal can follow, so all these little crystals can follow the paths of light toward the light.

We are going to cover the earth with crystals of God's light as it slowly turns and enlightens the whole universe with the light of the lord, until it enlightens even the darkness!
