Have you wondered why Israel and Christians are persecuted and other religions are not? It is because true believers stand carrying the Lord’s Light in a world filled with darkness. Our lights are shining the way for this and future generations to come before the true throne of Almighty God. Remember, you are not your own any more because you were purchased by the blood of the Lamb, Christ Jesus. The worldly people know they are sinning and doing wrong because their “conscience” tells them inside. The Holy Spirit convicts them and the Lord calls out to them yet they choose to continue in their sins thus hardening their hearts and becoming cold and hateful. Do not be surprised when people hate you for doing God’s work but instead pray for them, love them and let God move through you. Who knows, you may reach a few along the way. John 3:19″This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed” Psalm 18:28″You, Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light” Isaiah 5:20″Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter” Isaiah 42:16″I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them” Isaiah 58:10″and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday.” Luke 11:34″Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are healthy, your whole body also is full of light. But when they are unhealthy, your body also is full of darkness”John 1:5″The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it” John 8:12″When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 12:46″I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness” Acts 26:18″to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’ 2 Corinthians 4:6″For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ” Ephesians 5:8″For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light” 1 Peter 2:9″But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light” 1 John 2:9″Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates a brother or sister is still in the darkness” SHINE ON LITTLE LIGHT OF GOD…SHINE ON!
