Really. What would be the point or purpose for darkness?

We need the rhythm of light and darkness in this physical world, for the purpose of having a cycle of activity and restfulness, for the sake of mental and physical rejuvenation and reparation.

Those who have not been “cleared” of sin need darkness to hide their deeds within. To wrap around themselves like a shroud of invisibility. Deception. Deceitfulness. Lying. Treachery. After they practice such things and become emboldened, the darkness is no longer deep enough, wide enough nor dark enough. They bring their guile into the open daylight. Considering themselves wily enough to operate with impunity. There they are undone. Discovered. Realized. Caught. Captured. Arrested. The “uncleared” have no light in them and they want no more to do with the light without.

There will be none such in the Eternal Light. Neither would they desire any such endless light. It would be a hell of suffering for them.

For we who prefer the clarity, openness, and honesty of light it will be heaven for us.

Besides, it is our Savior who IS the Light provided. And in that is eternal safety, also! To be closest to the One who loves us the most, and those with us.  -g.w.

Ephesians 5. 8-14

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness,righteousness and truth) 10 and find out what pleases the Lord. 11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. 13 But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light. 14 This is why it is said:

“Wake up, sleeper,
    rise from the dead,
    and Christ will shine on you.”

  1. This is so good. I have been pondering lately how Jesus will be the light in heaven. And I think of how Saul, before he was named Paul, saw Him in a great light from heaven. It’d be a fascinating word study to dig through the Scriptures on the words for “light”.

    1. Thank you, Steeny! Good word to study to cover the whole bible is to study the word “light.” How He will be light is a very intriguing question, indeed. But as He is so will we be! Absolutely mind-boggling! 😊

    2. Steeny, I have done that. What the Holy Bible Says about LIGHT is one of a series available on Amazon, if you are interested. It was an exciting project and a ten-week devotional study that goes from Genesis to Revelation.

    1. I am very humbled that you asked of me, Fran. But I’m afraid because of previous obligations I wouldn’t have time to get to it this week. Plus I’m afraid I don’t have a study program on this computer that allows me to print the Greek letters on my screen. I’m sorry to have to let you down on this occasion.
