Illuminati, any of various groups or people who claim to have some kind of special or enlightened knowledge on a particular subject, especially in philosophy or religion. Today, this word is used mostly to refer to some people that are thought of as evil but illuminati is a word for the church. In fact, illuminati belongs to the church, I will show you why soon.
There are different categories of illuminatis, all of whom have the same or similar enlightenment. There are those who claim to have God’s eye, and see everything as God sees it. In other words, they are claiming they are God. There are those who claim to have or know the remaining piece of the puzzle i.e. the pyramid. Thus, these ones do not only have special knowledge of God but know the way to heaven. There is the third one, who seem to be some kind of light. It is this third category of illuminatis I want to consider here.
Jesus said in Matthew 5:14 that we believers are the light of the world, a city set on a hill that cannot be hidden. Jesus also said in John 9:5 that as long as he was in the world, he was the light of the world. For many years, I tried to reconcile these two verses but to no avail. The conflict or biasness is cleared away when we read John 8:12
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
When Jesus was in the world, he was the light of the world. Now that he is taken away, we are the light of the world because he dwells in us. We are not the light per se but have the Light in us.
This is where the illuminati guys come in wrong. Instead of they being the light that they are supposed to be, they rather block the path of the light from shining on the faces of people. These claim they have special enlightenment but then don’t take the steps to enlighten those who are in darkness. Instead, you know what they do? They keep those who do not have the light in darkness still, misleading and misguiding them. Like Jesus said to the hypocrites of the day, these are whited sepulchres; they claim to have enlightenment but cannot enlighten another.
What does it mean to be illuminati? What essence can we be of when we are called illuminati? Sometime ago I discussed this but I will do it here one more time. Remember that illuminati is not those evil persons who are into the occult or some other diabolical religion, illuminatis are those who are in the church.
We are to be a light to the world. We are to shine the light of God where there is darkness, because our God is the Father of lights. We are to be a difference where things are odd and wayward, because our God is holy (different). To be illuminati is to be a life changer, a blessing, and courage and wisdom to those who need it. As illuminatis, your life must reflect essence just as salt is to food. To be illuminati is not to enrich yourself and spend it all on yourself or those who praise you; to be illuminati is to bring people out of their bondage and to break every shackle in their life through your riches. To be illuminati is to open the eyes of people so that they will see and behold wondrous things in the Scriptures. To be illuminati is to give people a sense of hope that they’ve never had before and to stir up love for God.
This is what it means to be illuminati. “Jesus was illuminati?!” I could say that. The disciples of Jesus Christ were all enlightened ones because Jesus did not keep the mysteries of heaven or the kingdom to himself, he shared it with them (Matthew 13:16-17). Paul was illuminati and the insights, which he received from God and Jesus Christ he passed it down to us. We’re all illuminati, every believer, because we have not only seen the light but have it in us. God bless you.
