Light and Darkness

Reference:John 1:3-5, John 3:19-21
Text: John 1:1-5
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 through him; and without him was not anything made that hath been made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in the darkness; and the darkness apprehended it not. (John 1:1-5 ASV)
John 1:1-5 (1,2)
Light: is something that makes things visible, is the over whelming majesty of God. It brings into transparency that which was hidden. Darkness is scared of the light because light brings about the revelation of the truth. Light brings about redemption from bondage, slavery, and captivity. Light can further be said to be a Spiritual illumination or awareness, enlightenment, understanding, mental insight, one who is expose to knowledge is someone who has seen the light.
Jesus is the prince of light. For the scriptures clearly states that in him was life and the life was the light of men. Therefore, Life is light and light is life because Jesus is the originator of life and light, who is also the way, truth and the life.
Darkness: is defined as the absence or deficiency of light, wickedness or evil: lack of knowledge or enlightenment, lack of sight; blindness, concealment, sin, trials, temptation. Where there is darkness there you will find all sorts of ungodly practices like witch craft, sexual perversion, occultism, lies, perpetration of evil on the highest order, killing, cheating, wickedness Etc.
No wonder the Bible says that we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principality, power and spiritual wickedness and authority in high places. I came to tell somebody here that though Satan is the prince of darkness, God has given us the authority and His complete amour to use to fight the wickedness of darkness, receive it receive it receive in the name of Jesus, amen. I am talking to you about light and darkness.
When God created us, He created us out of nothing and because we are created beings, we have no basis for pride ( ntang idem, ukut idem say more) remember that you exist only because God made you, and you have special gifts only because God gave them to you. The gift of singing, giving help to others, preaching, leading others to succeed and the list goes on.
With God you are something valuable and unique apart from God you are nothing and if you try to live without God, you will be abandoning the purpose for which you were made and as a result you will be living in darkness. When once you’ve u leave God to do wickedness, or you being to see yourself as god because of your earthly achievements, God departs from you and withdraws His angels and you are left alone and you become nothing but an empty vessel, no content in side. It is written on n the scriptures my glory will I Not share with anymore. Song: you are the Lord that is you ur name, you’re u will never share your glory with any man.
Let me ask someone a question here, do you ever feel that your life, the things you go through, the pains, the shame, humiliation, disappointments are too complex for God to understand? Well I came with good news for that some one today, God created the entire universe including you and there is nothing too difficult for him and his love is Bigger than any problem you may face.
Receive the grace to enjoy God’s love in Jesus name, may God bring light and life into your life, home, businesses church that will drive away darkness In Jesus name Amen. I’m talking to you about light and darkness.
” the darkness did not comprehend it” means the darkness of evil never has and never has the capacity, is not at all in the position, doesn’t have the know how, never will have the power to over come or extinguish God’s light.
God’s light is permanent, it can’t be changed to darkness. For it is impossible for God to lie. It is impossible for God to change His mind. Our God is a God who was and who is and who is to come. He is omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient God. So, When light shows up, when light appears, when light comes darkness doesn’t have a choice but to bow and give way.
Have you ever seen darkness over shadow light? Even when the light is lamp tin light or touch light? For 17years that light of God has led Bishop Josephine Eggah in active and full time ministry. Oh I came to prophesy to day that the great light of Yaweh will never depart from New Birth Bible church and that the Bishop will operate with fresh fire, fresh anointing and new grace everyday under the light of Jesus Christ in Jesus name, Amen.

Prayer points: Who so ever says that in this new month, and in this new year that your life shall be in darkness, I stand as an oracle of God to cancel it in Jesus Name, amen. Receive the light of God that will make way for you in this end time in Jesus name? From now on you will walk no more in darkness but in the Light of God for the Light of God is greater than darkness IJN amen.
Jesus Christ is the creator of life and his life brings light to mankind. Prosperity, peace, joy, happiness, good fortune, children, wealth, forwardness, good wife, good husband, good mothers and mother inlawas, good fathers and father in laws all good and perfect gifts comes from Jesus and when we follow Jesus, who is the the true light, we avoid walking blindly and falling into sin.
He lights the path ahead of us so we can see how to lives. In the Beginning was the Word and the word was with God and it is written, you’re ur word is a lamp into my feet and a light unto my path. He removes the darkness of sin from our live. Receive the grace to allow the light of Christ to shine into your life IJN, AMEN.
Satan is the creator of darkness. Nothing good comes from following Satan. Sin, disobedience, ungratefulness, sickness, failure untimely death, misfortune, poverty and lack, wickedness comes from Satan. Have you ever seen a witch or a wizzard prosper and his children are established? Have you ever seen a man who doesn’t want good for others enjoy good? The bible says evil will slay the wicked.
Let Christ guide your life, and you’ll never need to stumble in darkness IJN.Weeping may endure for the night but joy comes in the morning. The morning is the day break that is when light comes.- song: idara eyedu ke usere
Prayer: that man who doesn’t wish you well in this new month and In This new year of newness will live to see the light of God take you higher to your land of fulfillment IJN Amen.
In closing let’s read book of John 3:19-21
And this is the judgment, that the light is come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light; for their works were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, and cometh not to the light, lest his works should be reproved. But he that doeth the truth cometh to the light, that his works may be made manifest, that they have been wrought in God. (John 3:19-21 ASV)
I want you to see the reason why some people do evil. Many people don’t want their lives exposed to God’s light because they are afraid of what will be revealed. They don’t want to be changed. Yet on Sundays you see them in front rolls of churches after their night meetings in the occultic world. Have you not read in the bible that God is not to be mocked that what soever a man sows so he shall reap?
All you children of light don’t be surprised when you see these same people threaten by your desire to obey God and do what is right because they are afraid that the light in you may expose some of the darkness in their lives. These same people go a long way to oppose you, speak evil against you behind your back, block and hinder your rights.
You see the people of darkness in churches even in this new birth church they oppose the good church leaders, you see them in your family, in school, in offices every where you go.
But I tell you something, rather than giving into discouragement keep praying that they will come to see how much better it is to live in the light than in the darkness.
Song: Mme anie owo ebiong uden mmi obong duense
Prayer point: father let this new month be my month of divine upliftment and rest IJN Amen.
Father remove every obstacle in my way that is keeping me in darkness let me see the light IJN,amen.
May God cause darkness to disappear and cause his light to appear in your life in Jesus name amen
