God’s Light

burning-candles-with Verse

It is amazing that a person can see the light of a star in the darkness of night. A star, being billions of miles away, shines through the darkness, and we, on this tiny speck of earth, can actually see the light of a star.

Equally amazing, even though I am a small, unworthy creature, God, in His infinite love and mercy, has allowed me to actually see and understand a little bit of His Light.

His Light is the knowledge and truth of His written Word. God’s Light – the Truth of His Word – is the wisdom, the knowledge, and the Way of Truth.

The Scriptures tell us that God is Light, and in Him is no darkness at all ” (1John 1:10).

When the Light of God reaches my heart, it changes me! His Light is pure, holy, and overwhelming. His Light is powerful, wise, merciful, and all-knowing. His Light is truth! (Psalms 43:3; John 1:6-9)

When God’s Light penetrates the darkness of my sinful ways, I am changed.

Yahushua Messiah [the Hebrew name for Jesus Christ], Who is God’s Light to the world (John 8:12), shines into my darkness by His Love and sacrifice for me. His Love is pure, holy, and overwhelming. His Love is powerful, wise, merciful, and all-knowing.

God’s Light, and His Love, brings me out of darkness so that I may become a partaker of His divine nature, and I may become His beloved child of Light (2Peter 1:4; Ephesians 5:8).

By God’s Light I know His great Love for me.

By His Light, I know His way for me.

By His Light, I know His hope and comfort, and His mercy.

How can I find God’s Light?

I find and I know God’s Light when I receive His Son [God’s Light to the world], and when I receive the truth, the wisdom and knowledge of God’s Word — that is, when I receive the entrance of His Words into my life!

When I walk in, and follow, the Light [the truth, the wisdom and knowledge] of God’s written Words [the Bible], they keep me from the chaotic ways of darkness, from the hurtful and harmful ways of this world.

When I look to Yahuwah Elohim [the Hebrew name for the LORD God], seeking His Son’s love and seeking the guidance of His written Word, waiting upon Him for direction and rescue, then He brings me forth into His Light, and has mercy upon me (Micah 7:7-9,18,19)!

By His Light, I can order my steps according to His Word, and thus walk in His truth and love. His Light brings me a firm and abiding peace and confidence.

What joy it is to finally be in fellowship with the Living God, through His Son, Yahushua Messiah! What joy to finally have God’s peace in my soul, and begin to walk according to His Light and mercy!!! What joy it is to know Him, talk with Him, and be with His people!

God’s Light enlightens my path, bringing gladness to my heart!

His WORD truly is a lamp unto my feet and a Light unto my path!!
(see Psalms 119:verses 105 and 130)

“The moth thinks nothing of the burning and destructive power of the flame, but is fascinated by its brilliancy, and thus rushes into it and perishes. So man, regardless of the destructive and poisonous power of sin, and feeling only its allurement, rushes in to it, to his eternal destruction.

But God’s light rescues the sinner from death, and bestows upon him life and enduring happiness. God’s light brings the sinner out of darkness, into His marvellous light. Man was created to be capable of possessing the precious gift of God’s true Light, the Saviour — the Light of all men.” — Sundar Singh

In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with 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 Word [Yahushua Messiah] was made flesh,
and dwelt among us…. (John 1:1-4, 14)

Thank you Father, for Your great mercy in loving me so much that You sent Your Son to rescue me, and to enlighten my heart and my life! Hold me close to You, and bring me further into Your marvellous light. In the name of Your Son, Yahushua Messiah, I pray.

“I often felt myself weak in the presence of temptation, and needed frequently to hold days of fasting and prayer, and to spend as much time in overhauling my own religious life in order to retain communion with God, and to maintain a hold upon His divine strength to fulfill His purposes.”
— Charles Finney

The Son of God:
Yahuwah Elohim [the Hebrew name for the LORD God], Who is the Living, Eternal God, Creator of all things, Who can do whatever His pleases, came to this earth, born into this world through a virgin birth. He did this to communicate His character, His nature, His power, His purpose, and His plans. Only Yahushua Messiah [Jesus Christ] could have accomplished this mission, because . . . He was not an ordinary man!!

Many hold the idea that the Torah and the Holy Spirit are at odds, and cannot be reconciled. However, the Scriptures reveal that the Torah and the Holy Spirit are not at odds with each other at all — rather, they are in complete unity! They have always worked together, hand in hand, throughout history.
