The Call into Light; Born into light or Walked
Celestial is an abode of light.
Whatever ways you find yourself as a Celestial, always be grateful to God that you find yourself in light and not in darkness
Those born into celestial have been born into light
And those that came into the church due to one circumstance or another have walked into light
No wonder the song says;
Ijo mimo temi
Latorun loti wa
Awon to sin nibe
Ninu imole lo wa
Celestial is a fold of light and those who worship in it comprises those who were born into it and those who walked into it.
But ironically some of those born in light do walk out of it and some of those who walked into its light after being chased by darkness do not hold firm unto its light.
Hymn 205 stanza 2 enlightens our understanding of God’s workings of how we all became Celestial.
“Those he loveth, he calleth, those he calls he chooses, and those he chooses he glorifies in this our dark world.
The world rejects his call, going deeper in darkness refusing calls to repentance under destruction
This call is a call to come into light and leave darkness.
It would be disastrous to be born into light(Christ) and run back into darkness(the world)
Or to be chased by darkness into light and go back again into darkness
Christ is that light in Celestial fold that shines forever and ever.
The path of salvation leads us into the abode of light
