Revelation 22:5 ” There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light.”

The OT prophet Isaiah spoke of this illuminating glory to come in Isaiah 60:19, ” The sun will no more be your light by day, nor will the brightness of the moon shine on you, for the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory.”   There is coming a day when God’s Kingdom will be set up here on earth…His truth and glory will pierce through all darkness, bringing into the light all sin and deception.  On that day, the Lord Himself will become our light, and all evil will have to flee.

II Corinthians 4:6 ” 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 the glory of God in the face of Christ.”

As I John 1:5 states, “God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all.”  When we walk from darkness into the light of Christ, we are transformed…and we become enlightened.  Gone is our old self, for now we can understand the light and truth of the Gospel.  No longer to be trapped in the darkness, this new knowledge of God now resides in our heart…and the glory of God shines forth as there becomes less of us and more of Jesus in our life.

Psalm 119:130 ” The unfolding of Your words give light; it gives understanding to the simple.”

If you’re like me, you’ve read a particular passage in the Bible numerous times, when sudden you read it again and it jumps off the page at you…for the Holy Spirit wonderfully  reveals the scripture in a completely different light and with such clarity that it’s like reading it for the very first time.  This unfolding of God’s word is like a light shining in a dark place…it is the lamp for our feet and a light for our path. (Psalm 119:105)  This unfolding of His word,  takes what was once a mystery and makes it known to us…it takes what was once hidden but now is revealed to us.
