Let There Be Light..,

Worried the world is getting darker? There’s an answer for that…

In the beginning Elohim created the heavens and the earth. And the earth was without order, and empty; and DARKNESS was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, “Let there be LIGHT!” And there was LIGHT… 1

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with the God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the LIFE was the LIGHT OF MEN. And the LIGHT shines in the DARKNESS, and the darkness apprehended it not.

That Word was the TRUE LIGHT, which lightens every man that comes into this world. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become sons of God, even to them that believe on his name, who are not born of blood, nor of the will of flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father), full of grace and truth.”2

Then Jesus spoke again unto them, saying, “I AM the LIGHT of the world; he that follows me shall not walk in DARKNESS but shall have the LIGHT OF LIFE.”3

“As long as I am in the world, I AM the LIGHT OF THE WORLD.”4

“Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.”5

“YOU are the LIGHT OF THE WORLD. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives LIGHT to everyone in the house. In the same way, let YOUR LIGHT shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”6

The people walking in DARKNESS have seen a great LIGHT; on those living in the land of deep DARKNESS a LIGHT has dawned.7

Arise, shine, for YOUR LIGHT has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, DARKNESS covers the earth and thick DARKNESS is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you. Nations will come to YOUR LIGHT, and kings to the brightness of YOUR DAWN.”8

(But) Anyone who claims to be in the LIGHT but HATES a brother or sister is still in the DARKNESS. Anyone who LOVES their brother and sister lives in the LIGHT, and there is nothing in them to make them stumble. But anyone who HATES a brother or sister is in the DARKNESS and walks around in the DARKNESS. They do not know where they are going, because the DARKNESS has BLINDED them.9

For God, who said, “Let LIGHT shine out of DARKNESS,” made his LIGHT shine in our hearts to give us the LIGHT of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ. But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.10
