Psalm 27:1, The LORD is my light…….

Light is the first thing God brought forth in Genesis 1, “Let there be light”- In Hebrew it reads, “Hayah owr”, Light be! It was a command! ‘According to the Midrash, the original light was of an intense spiritual quality… ‘ (Chumash commentary by Rashi)

The first thing mentioned in the Bible is called “the law of first mention” and is very important. This is the first words  recorded that was spoken out of Creator God’s voice as a command, “Light Be!”

The Apostle John had such an incredible revelation of the power of the love of Jesus that they could not kill him. They even boiled him in oil and he did not die. He opens his Gospel of Good News, according to his time while Jesus ministered with these words: John 1:1, In the beginning the Word already existed. He was with God, and he was God. (2) He was in the beginning with God. (3) He created everything there is. Nothing exists that he didn’t make. (4) Life itself was in him, and this life gives light to everyone. (5) The light shines through the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it. (9) The one who is the true light, who gives light to everyone, was going to come into the world. (NLT)

Jesus is the Word and when you set your desires to spend time reading and meditating on the Word of God, you are fellowshipping with Jesus. Cleansing yourself of unrighteousness is not such a hard thing to do, you don’t have to tarry long at the altar, weeping, begging to be cleansed. Just purpose to spend time in the Word of God and the light will dispel all the darkness. The more you walk in the light, the freer you will become.

I John 1:9, But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
