What is light other than the absence of darkness? Why is light…perhaps that is a better question. It seems that if as the evolutionists believe-the earth is millions of years old, then through adaptation and survival of the fittest we would have developed an ability to see as clearly in the absence of the sun as we do in the presence of the same.
It is not to be and nor will it ever be the case that man will in time develop this nocturnal ability. Why? Light may be our greatest ally and most trusted confidante, exposing the dangers and peril of life without it. Darkness however is an altogether different animal, inciting within us the most primal of fears. Why…what causes this reaction? Darkness harms not the subjects cloaked in its shadow. Darkness is not a thing to be felt or touched…Darkness is nothing more than the absence of light.
It is not the darkness man fears but rather what lurks in the darkness. The robbers and the thieves. When the sun sets and darkness falls the unscrupulous fellow begins his day. Why must they wait for nightfall for a dishonest days work? The answer is simple…darkness rather than light they have befriended. A friend sticks closer than a brother and night conceals their crimes. The unscrupulous fellow cannot work in the light for the light will surely discover his deeds.
What then…why then did God split our days between the darkness and the light? Would it not have been better to live in constant light? Maybe…just maybe God is making every attempt at revealing himself to his subjects. Teaching us to yearn for light by causing us to know the darkness, fearing the thing that lurks there. Perhaps it is that God was demonstrating for us the effects of a world that was bound to fall. Helping us to understand how truly important it is live in light while despising the darkness.
The day itself is a model of sorts that we in our limited understanding can observe with our eyes and perceive that which is spiritual. For the man who has lived in darkness has seen a great light and now chooses to live by the latter. If the light that is in you is darkness how great is that darkness, that is the question we all must answer, and to all the answer is the same…
…”the people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.”
HIS NAME IS ABOVE ALL NAMES, IT IS THE ONLY NAME UNDER HEAVEN BY WHICH MEN MUST BE SAVED…HIS NAME IS EMANUEL- GOD WITH US. IT IS JESUS THE CHRIST.
