In him was life; and the life was the light of men!

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men, John 1:1-4 KJV.

In the beginning of creation the Word (logos) was already in existence with God as God’s spoken word. 

"And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me. And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ." John 1:14-17.

Jesus is The Word that created all things. In him was life, all life is given by Jesus. "All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men." John 1:3-4. The true Light, "lighteth every man that cometh into the world" John 1:9.

The life that was in Jesus was to be a Light for people meaning his gospel truth, the good news is intended to be your light, holiness, deliverance and protection.

"He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth." John 1:11-14.

Spiritual birth is an act of God; "So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy" Romans 9:16.

The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth. Jesus is the Word, the true Light, the One and Only Son, the Lamb of God, Rabbi or Teacher, Messiah or Christ, the Son of God, the King of Israel, the Son of Man, and the One who baptizes in the Holy Spirit. "And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace" John 1:16. 

Hear this declaration, it is written; "And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not" John 1:5.

John the Baptist said, "And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God" John 1:34. Looking upon Jesus as he walked, he said, Behold the Lamb of God!

When two disciples of John heard this, they followed Jesus. They each began to witness to their own brothers and friends saying "We have found the Messiah" (which means "Christ"). If you’re still quiet about him  it may mean you still haven’t known much about him yet. Right now he’s saying to you come follow me. You and I should be in the business of finding disciples for him. When we do, Jesus says, "I tell you the truth, you will all see heaven open and the angels of God going up and down on the Son of Man, the one who is the stairway between heaven and earth."

Sit down, Martha!

The story of Martha and Mary tells us that there are two types of Christians out there; where one is a worshipper and another is a waitperson or server. You can choose what you want to be, that’s to be a worshipper or server. But listen to this before you do; " Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet and heard His word. But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, "Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me." And Jesus answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her. "" Luke 10:38-42. Mary chose the best part, to sit down at his feet and not be worried, frustrated, confused and troubl

Why Lord why me?

Many people ask; why Lord why me? Hezekiah said, " indeed it was for my own peace That I had great bitterness; But You have lovingly delivered my soul from the pit of corruption, For You have cast all my sins behind Your back ," Isaiah 38:17. Did you hear that? All things work for your good. God loves you regardless. However, that you do in the prime of your life impacts the remainder of your years, even hereafter. If you’re born again, you allow the Lord to undertake, but if you’re not born again you certainly deprive your latter years. Hezekiah had boils and was supposed to die because of them. He said, "I shall go to the gates of Sheol" and sin shall make an end of me. But when he repented, God undertook deliverance for him, he said, " What shall I say? He has both spoken to me, And He Himself has done it. I shall walk carefully all my years in the bitterness of my soul, " Isaiah 38:15 knowing that God has restored me. For this reason, he said I’ll prai

How much do people know about you?

Hezekiah answered, " They have seen all that is in my house; there is nothing among my treasures that I have not shown them, " Isaiah 39:4. I can hear Isaiah say, " What? " Then Hezekiah said, it doesn’t matter Isaiah, " They came to me from a far country, from Babylon ." What can they do? Then Isaiah said to Hezekiah, " Hear the word of the LORD of hosts: 'Behold, the days are coming when all that is in your house, and what your fathers have accumulated until this day, shall be carried to Babylon; nothing shall be left,' says the LORD. 'And they shall take away some of your sons who will descend from you, whom you will beget; and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon .'" Isaiah 39:5-7. How much do people know about you my friend? Everything? Then hear the word of the Lord! This reminds me of one president. Someone said of him I don't think he can now be trusted with intelligence briefing, and in the futur
