The Giver of the Source of light for mankind

The greatest Source of all is the One Who is a Spirit no man can see, but Who created out of chaos the Light and the universe, Al-Khaaliq Jehovah God. It is Him Who alone Who has the Power to turn the entities, He is the Evolver Al-Bari’ as well as Al-Musawwir The Fashioner, The One who forms His creatures in different pictures. He is Al-Qaabid or  The Constricter, The Retainer, The Withholder, The One who constricts the sustenance by His wisdomand expands and widens it with His Generosity and Mercy.

He gave a Source of Light so that man could come to see the Most Precious Light. He sent His prophet to give light on the land so that man could see the right path to the narrow gate.

The Most High (Al-Aliyy) Elohim, Jehovah God, as the Greatest One (Al-Kabeer) offered the world that light so that mankind could come out of the darkness of the present world. Allah gave that light so that man should not have to fear, for true there is no Power greater than The God of All that never tires from Alpha thru Omega beyond.. ..

The Sender of the Light is the One (Al-Ahad) Eternal and Independent One (As-Samad)

He should be The Great One, The Mighty (Al-Azeem), the Master who is relied upon in matters and reverted to in ones needs. Mankind has to know that they need Him, Who is (Al-Hafeez) the Preserver, (Al-Muhaimin) the Protector, the One who protects whatever and whoever He is willing to protect.

By the light He has sent to the world, people should be able to come to see Ar-Raafi, The Exalter, The Elevator, The One who lowers whoever does not fit to be recorded in the Book of life and falls under His Destruction whilst the others who recognise Him as the Most High shall be raised by His Endowment. Then they shall know Ar-Rahmaan, The Compassionate, The Beneficient, The One who has plenty of mercy for the believers and the blasphemers in this world and especially for the believers in the hereafter.

It is that light which came to the world who gave himself as a lamb and as a ransom for many in the hope his heavenly Father would accept that payment, which He did out of love for His sent one and for His creatures. there that Mighty Father showed that His the Ar-Raheem,  The Merciful, The One who has plenty of mercy for those who are willing to see the light and have it burning in their hearts, making of them worthy believers.

Jesus brought into the world the light of Al-Mu’min The Guardian of Faith, The One who witnessed for Himself that no one is God but Him. And He witnessed for His believers that they are truthful in their belief that no one is God but Him. In Him we should have faith and trust.

Yo soy la luz del mundo – I Am the Light of the World – Ik ben het licht van de wereld

Joh 8:12  Jesús habló una vez más al pueblo y dijo:
«Yo soy la luz del mundo. Si ustedes me siguen, no tendrán que andar en la oscuridad porque tendrán la luz que lleva a la vida».

Joh 8:12 Again therefore: Jesus spake to them, saying,
I am the light of the world: who followeth me shall in no wise walk in the darkness, but shall have the light of: life.

Joh 8:12 Een ander maal richtte Jesus het woord tot hen, en sprak:
Ik ben het licht der wereld. Wie Mij volgt, zal niet in de duisternis wandelen, maar het licht des levens bezitten.

You Need Light for Your Path

You Need Light for Your Path

Paul Tripp

 

More than six billion people on this planet are trying to navigate through an increasingly interconnected world of spiritual confusion and moral weakness. Is this all the fault of Adam and Eve’s sin? Not really. Even in their sinless garden, the first man and woman were not equipped to figure out life on their own. We know this because God immediately began to speak to them and direct them as soon as they were created and before the serpent ever uttered a word.

By themselves, Adam and Eve would have had no idea who they were or why they existed; no idea how to spend their days. So we see that from the very beginning we were created to be dependent on God, to be willing listeners and humble receivers. God’s Word, spoken directly to man, would give us sure and certain guidance.

Now if this was true of Adam and Eve before sin entered the world, how much more true is it of you and me, who have never known a single sinless day, and are constantly bombarded by unbiblical messages from the world? Certainly, we need to be careful to trust in what we can be sure of.

No passage gets at this need and God’s provision better than Psalm 119:105.

“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.”

When do you need a lamp? Well, you probably wouldn’t pack a flashlight for a picnic lunch in the park. But you wouldn’t think of taking that nighttime walk through the woods without one. And which scenario is more like life in this fallen world: a picnic lunch, or midnight in the woods? You mustn’t try to live as if life is a sunny afternoon picnic. Sin has plunged your world into darkness. On any given day you probably encounter far more falsehood than you do truth. So if you’re going to move forward, to make your way without danger, and get to where you are meant to go, you need something to light your way.

You need light for your marriage and your parenting. You need light for your job and your relationships with your neighbours. You need light for your struggles with desires and temptations. You need light to help you deal with the unexpected. You need light to cope with new difficulties that emerge. You need light for when you’ve been sinned against. You need light to deal with weaknesses of the body and hardships of the heart. You need light for those moments when you’re alone and overwhelmed. You need light for all those unknowns that will show up on your doorstep tomorrow, the day after tomorrow, and for the rest of your life.

You don’t need to bloody your nose and bruise your toes by bumping into trees and tripping over roots. You don’t have to grope around fearfully in the darkness. The Light of the World has graced you with the light of his Word. It will shine around your feet in the midst of the darkness so you needn’t stumble and fall. Listen to the reflections of that great nineteenth century preacher, Charles Spurgeon on this passage.

“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet.” We are walkers through the city of this world, and we are often called to go out into its darkness; let us never venture there without the light giving word, lest we slip with our feet. Each man should use the word of God personally, practically, and habitually, that he may see his way and see what lies in it. When darkness settles down upon all around me, the word of the Lord, like a flaming torch, reveals my way.

Having no fixed lamps in eastern towns, in old time each passenger carried a lantern with him that he might not fall into the open sewer, or stumble over the heaps of ordure which defiled the road. This is a true picture of our path through this dark world: we should not know the way, or how to walk in it, if Scripture, like a blazing flambeau, did not reveal it. One of the most practical benefits of Holy Writ is guidance in the acts of daily life: it is not sent to astound us with its brilliance, but to guide us by its instruction. It is true the head needs illumination, but even more the feet need direction, else head and feet may both fall into a ditch.
