the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with
God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning
with God. All things came into being by Him, and
apart from Him nothing came into being that has come
In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.
And the light shines in the darkness, and the
darkness did not comprehend it." ... 9
There was the
which, coming into the world, enlightens every man.
John 1:1-5, 9 (referring to the Word, who is Jesus
Christ -- NAS)
"Again therefore Jesus spoke to
them, saying, "I
am the light of the world; he who follows Me shall
not walk in the darkness, but shall have the
light of life." John 8:12 (NAS)
"...that the Christ was to
suffer, and that by reason of His resurrection from
the dead He should be the
proclaim light both to the Jewish people and to the
Gentiles." Acts 26:23 --(NAS)
"And this is the message we
have heard from Him and announce to you, that
light, and in Him there is no darkness at all.
If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet
walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the
if we walk in the light as He Himself is in the
light, we have fellowship with one another,
and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all
sin. If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving
ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess
our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us
our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a
liar, and His word is not in us." 1 John 1:5-10 (NAS)
we have the
prophetic word made more sure, to which you
do well to
pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place,
until the day dawns and the morning star arises in
your hearts. But know this first of all, that no
prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one's own
interpretation, for no prophecy was ever made by an
act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit
spoke from God. 2 Peter 1:19-21 (NAS)
What Lights Your Path?
Do you rely on the Father, Son and Holy Spirit to
light your path and to protect you from the evil
one? Do you go to the word of God to
learn about truth, righteousness, the gospel of
peace, faith and salvation?
take up the full armor of God, that you may be able
to resist in the evil day, and having done
everything, to stand firm. 14 Stand firm
therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and
having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
15 and having shod your feet with the
preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 in
addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with
which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming
missiles of the evil one. 17 And take the
helmet of salvation, and
the sword of
the Spirit, which is the word of God.
Ephesians 6:13-17 (NAS)
