And the light which shineth, which giveth you light, is through him who enlighteneth your eyes, which is the same light that quickeneth your understandings; (D&C 88: 11.)
This is not just environmental. This is now touching you. It is the "light of Christ" which "enlighteneth your eyes." What does that mean? Could you see if this were withdrawn?
What does it mean that the "light of Christ" is what "quickeneth your understandings?" Without the light of Christ would you be able to understand anything? How intimately are you connected to the "light of Christ?" How dependent are you on His light?
Which light proceedeth forth from the presence of God to fill the immensity of space— The light which is in all things, which giveth life to all things, which is the law by which all things are governed, even the power of God who sitteth upon his throne, who is in the bosom of eternity, who is in the midst of all things. (D&C 88: 12-13.)
We have been reading about Christ and the "light of Christ" which empowers all of this creation. But now the source from which it proceeds is being identified. This "proceedeth forth from the presence of God." Who is this referring to? Is this Christ still?
What source flows from God and proceeds throughout all creation? What is the "power" behind all creation?
