JESUS CHRIST..............The Light that Shineth in Darkness!

It gives me great pleasure to share the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ with you. John the beloved, in the book of John 1:1-5, gave us the other name of Jesus Christ (Word) and the deep story of how He was in the beginning with God and created everything that was created. 

He says:  

"In 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 were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.  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". John 1: 1-5

If you receive the light, which Jesus gives, you will never walk in darkness again. If His light is inside of you, no one will easily deceive you.  I hear people say that someone deceived them and defrauded them. That shows that the Light of God is not active in that life, when the Light comes, illumination comes and darkness disappears.  

The Light reveals hidden secrets of the heart. You have read instances when a crafty young men would deceive a big woman and siphon huge amount of money from her in the guise or marriage or business - It is because the light of God is not active in that life.

Once, I told my Mechanic I needed a rugged car that can withstand rough Nigerian roads.  He said he had reliable car dealers in Kaduna, from where I could make my choice of a rugged car. Then I got some money together and told him I am ready to buy the car.

But, a day before our planned journey to Kaduna from Abuja, the Lord told me not to go...He said they will sell a stolen car to me.  He said they have organized three different cars for me to inspect and all the cars were stolen.  What do you call that - Advance knowledge and that's what the Light does to you - He gives you timely information that will deliver you from trouble.

Jesus told the woman by the well that if she drinks the water He gives, she will never thirst again.  If the Light is in you, He will guide you through life.  The Light will be a lamp to your feet, so you would not stumble and fall.  This Light is from above and trustworthy, this Light is Jesus Christ, son of the Living God.

You know some people would say "Ooh if only I had started the business, my life would have changed for better.  They will start the business and nothing changes, instead they begin to owe debts.  

Some guy think "if only I get an MBA or qualify as an Accountant, I would have gotten a good job.  They will struggle and get the MBA and professional qualifications and yet there is still no job for them. Such people forget that ....it is not in him that willeth or in him that runneth, but in God that showeth mercy. 

Whenever you put your trust in man or anything else, other than Jesus, you can be sure it will fail. Man will fail you, human wisdom, tradition will fail you also, but Jesus will never fail you, Accept Him today.

In Mathew 11:28, He gave an invitation to all men, saying " Come unto me, all ye that have laboured and are heavy laden and I will give you rest. He will give you rest, not as the world gives.  He will give you peace of mind and peace of heart, again not as the world gives. 

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John, and this man was born as a witness to the Light I am talking about.  John the Baptist came primarily to bear witness to Christ and to prepare the heart of men to receive Him, the Light and walk in the newness of life He brings.

Since the coming of John, devout men, apostles, prophets etc has been bearing witness of Him.  I am also bearing the same witness to you today, saying that JESUS CHRIST is the Light from heaven to us. I bear witness that Jesus is the Son of God, who died to take away the sins of mankind and reconcile man to God.

He was born for this purpose, for the bible says the blood of goat and sheep cannot wash away sin, only the perfect and righteous blood of Jesus can. He was born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. I ask you to receive HIM today and stay true to Him.

The good news is that as many as received Him, to them gave He the power to become children of God, to those who believe in His name. Saul encountered the Light on his way to Damascus and fell to the ground, and by the time he stood up, he could not see for the glory of the Light was much - Acts 22:11

And from that moment, Saul became Paul the disciple and Apostle. The Lord gave him the power to be numbered among the saints and to fulfill his ministry in Christ as we know it today.

Will you receive Him Now?
