The Light of the World

Jesus is the Light of the World

Before the beginning of time when the earth was covered in darkness, God was there. Jesus was with the Father and the Holy Spirit and was moving across the darkness. Before the creation of Adam and Eve, Cane and Abel, Noah, Abraham and the others that followed, God had a plan of salvation for His created humans.

God gave a promise to Abraham that he would be the father of nations and through his lineage would come “the light of the world”, the Savior of Man, the Messiah to save us from our sins.

This is the same Messiah referred to in Genesis that would crush the head of the serpent satan. His name would be called Jesus and there would be the fulfillment of 365 prophecies from Old Testament prophets to prove He was who He said He was.

Check out these scriptures:

While on earth, Jesus proclaimed Himself to be the Son of God and the light of the world. John 8: 12 “When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows Me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

He preformed many miracles and signs to prove who He was. By far the greatest sign and miracle was His resurrection from the dead. For forty days, Jesus appeared before more than 500 people.

Acts 1: 3 “After His suffering, He presented himself to them and gave many convincing proofs that He was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God.”

1 Corinthians 15: 6-8 Paul said: “After that, He appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers and sisters at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep. Then He appeared to James, then to all the apostles, and last of all He appeared to me also, as to one abnormally born.”

John 12: 35 “Then Jesus told them, “You are going to have the light just a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, before darkness overtakes you. Whoever walks in the dark does not know where they are going.”

Jesus, the holy Son of God, came to save us from the darkness of sin and provide for us eternal salvation. He was the promised Messiah through which God’s covenant to Abraham would be fulfilled. He was who He said He was “the light of the world”. He became the “Lamb of God” sacrificed for the sins of the world and for you and for me.

Colossians 1: 13

“For He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son He loves,”

1 John 1: 5 “This is the message we have heard from Him and declare to you: God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all.”

Come out of the darkness of sin, friend and accept Jesus as your Savior and the Light of the world. Your eternal destination depends on it.
