This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 1 John 1:5
Is it possible for even a little bit of darkness to exist in the presence of light?
Everyone knows light banishes darkness and here we have Jesus relaying one facet of the Father to us. God is light, and there is NO darkness in Him.
So why is it that even some Christians ascribe sickness, a form of darkness to the one in whom NO darkness can be found?
“The god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them” 1Cor 4:4
“I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life” John 8:12
Ignorance is also a form of darkness, and even the people of God perish for lack of knowledge. As children of God it is to our honor to investigate things. The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge. Pro 18:15
For those still not sure what to do with the sick – do as our Lord commands us to do. Heal them. He gave us His power and the authority to use His name to get it done.
Praise be to God.
