Part 2 - The Sanctifying Work of Christ
Overview: Separated in the Rule of Christ
Separation is mentioned twice in day four of creation. God created lights "to divide the day from the night" and "to divide the light from the darkness." A separation is caused by different relationships to the sources of light which God made. As a type of the sanctifying work of Christ, this separation models the different dominions that are over those in the light and those in darkness. Those who are saved have the light of Christ and are said to be "of the day." These are under the grace of Christ, who directly rules over His church as a husband in marriage. Those in darkness are under the dominion of another light, this being the light of the law and the prophets, a rule of condemnation.
