“The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world” [John 1:9]
Man is and has been guided by the unknown since the beginning of time, from the darkness of the cave when curiosity touched the flame of light and burning awakened the sleeping soul. Enlightenment has developed man’s understanding and communication has blazed the trail of his horizons. Into this season of high speed change light exposes and accelerates opinions, options, choices, and pressure beats upon the boundaries of man’s mind… an endless search… until…
Change through the speed of light pierces the darkness, smashing the walls of ignorance and opening vistas of things beyond the caveman’s imagination. Wars and rumors of wars begin. For those that hate the light of the day is still darkness. “Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates his brother is still in the darkness. Whoever loves his brother lives in the light…” [1 John 2:9]
Understanding breaks through the boundaries of reason developing revelation that further releases the power of intuition. Intuition – the instinctive knowledge of things not yet seen, not known, not yet lived, something hidden deep within. Instinct tells of paradise lost and calls man back to the source of all knowledge and life.
Into the cosmos of ever increasing pressure man’s soul longs for peace, protection, hope, purpose and cries, “what is True Light?” Jesus steps down to enter the earthly realm and spoke to the people with these words, ”I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” Suddenly by faith instinct breaks the chains of lingering darkness and connects with infinite reality, true light streams and man is touched by God!
