And while the whole world waits for some new miracle, invention, or sign, the most magnificent miracle has already come. Jesus, the light in the darkness.
Isaiah 50:10 (AMP)
“Who is among you who fears the Lord, Who obeys the voice of His Servant, Yet who walks in darkness and has no light?
Let him trust and be confident in the name of the Lord and let him rely on his God.
If you are at a crossroads and don’t know what to do—if you feel you are in the dark—pray the prayer of Daniel...
Daniel 2:19-23 (AMP)
Then the secret was revealed to Daniel in a vision of the night, and Daniel blessed the God of heaven.
Daniel answered, “Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, For wisdom and power belong to Him.
“It is He who changes the times and the seasons;
He removes kings and establishes kings.
He gives wisdom to the wise And [greater] knowledge to those who have understanding!
“It is He who reveals the profound and hidden things; He knows what is in the darkness, And the light dwells with Him.
“I thank You and praise You, O God of my fathers, For You have given me wisdom and power; Even now You have made known to me what we requested of You, For You have made known to us [the solution to] the king’s matter.”
Jesus Christ - The Light of the World
John 1:9-10 (AMP)
There it was—the true Light [the genuine, perfect, steadfast Light] which, coming into the world, enlightens everyone. He (Christ) was in the world, and though the world was made through Him, the world did not recognize Him.
John 1:11-13 (AMP)
He came to that which was His own [that which belonged to Him—His world, His creation, His possession], and those who were His own [people—the Jewish nation] did not receive and welcome Him. But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the right [the authority, the privilege] to become children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name— who were born, not of blood [natural conception], nor of the will of the flesh [physical impulse], nor of the will of man [that of a natural father], but of God [that is, a divine and supernatural birth—they are born of God—spiritually transformed, renewed, sanctified].
1 John 1:5 (AMP)
This is the message [of God’s promised revelation] which we have heard from Him and now announce to you, that God is Light [He is holy, His message is truthful, He is perfect in righteousness], and in Him there is no darkness at all [no sin, no wickedness, no imperfection].
1 John 1:6 (AMP)
If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness [of sin], we lie and do not practice the truth;
1 John 1:7 (AMP)
but if we [really] walk in the Light [that is, live each and every day in conformity with the precepts of God], as He Himself is in the Light, we have [true, unbroken] fellowship with one another [He with us, and we with Him], and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin [by erasing the stain of sin, keeping us cleansed from sin in all its forms and manifestations].
1 John 1:8-9 (AMP)
If we say we have no sin [refusing to admit that we are sinners], we delude ourselves and the truth is not in us. [His word does not live in our hearts.] If we [freely] admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just [true to His own nature and promises], and will forgive our sins and cleanse us continually from all unrighteousness [our wrongdoing, everything not in conformity with His will and purpose].
