Light Exposes What's Hidden in Darkness

Have you noticed that in watching a film, if the characters are walking alone down a street in the dark, we are just waiting for something bad to happen. . . the escaped jaguar is sitting on a tree limb waiting to attack, the people who want to assault them are hiding behind a bush, robbers are creeping up to a house to rob or do other evil work. Seems the darkness is good for hiding and evil loves to do its work in darkness.


The Word speaks of darkness too:


John 3:19-21
This is the judgment [that is, the cause for indictment,
the test by which people are judged, the basis for the sentence]:
the Light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness
rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil.

20 For every wrongdoer hates the Light,
and does not come to the Light
[but shrinks from it] for fear that his
[sinful, worthless] activities will be exposed and condemned.

21 But whoever practices truth [and does what is right—
morally, ethically, spiritually] comes to the Light,
so that his works may be plainly shown to be what they are
—accomplished in God [divinely prompted, done with God’s help,
in dependence on Him].”

Jesus, Who is the Light, gave up His heavenly home to be born upon this earth as a man. This sacrifice was made out of the greatness of love! He came because first man, Adam, had chosen to disregard God’s instructions and listened to satan instead. This treasonous act condemned all men to  be born with a sin nature unable to come close to God who is all good. It would be like bringing paper near to fire~the paper is burned up.

Jesus came to bring a cleansing of man’s nature, a redeeming alteration to mankind. When we admit our sinfulness and choose to accept Jesus sacrifice on the cross as His gift of redemption, and we choose to make Jesus (rather than satan) the Lord of our lives, we are totally transformed into God’s children with His DNA. And the redemption is continual (If we err and sin, but then repent, that sin is automatically cleansed away).



Jesus put a light on the world that exposes evil. In these last days we can see evil expanding trying to hide in the darkness of deception and lies. It is working on society to have people deny Christ and deny Almighty God. It calls good evil and evil good. When we are reborn in God’s image our eyes are open to the light and we can see through the deceptions and wrongness that is happening.



To live a life full of goodness and truth we must have clear spiritual vision, so our choices are  seen from the light of truth. God’s Word holds only truth and is an excellent foundation for our lives. Armed with His truth we can walk down a lighted path to our goal of becoming all God created us to be. His good plan for our lives will be fulfilled.



Jeremiah 29:11 (AMP)
For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord,
‘plans for peace and well-being and
not for disaster,
to give you a future and a hope.
