OUR GOD HAS ALWAYS MANIFESTED HIMSELF TO US IN LIGHT, for that is His nature, and He is the source of it. In I Timothy 6:16, Paul speaks of Him as “dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see”. Physically, in darkness we are lost, helpless: only in light can we find our way. Likewise, morally, spiritually, without the true light of God’s word, we are lost, helpless. Nothing could demonstrate this more clearly than the poor and evil conditions of life in those nations and races which lack this light. Psalm 119:101 speaks truly, “TV WORD is a lamp unto my feet, and a light upon my Path.” Hence, Jesus Christ used this same simile, spoken by the prophets before Him, in John 8:12, “I am the light of the world: he that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light or-life.”

This, alone, is the true spiritual light: as the Apostle John says, “In Him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in-darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. And this is the condemnation: that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.  “(John 1:4-51 3:19) But spiritual truth is real and eternal: if we ignore it now, we must still face it eventually. As Jesus Christ said, He that rejecteth Me, and receiveth not My words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last days. (John 1-277)
