This Present Light (Prose)

Updated on January 9, 2016

This present light pierces all the darkness, yet it is only temporal and not absolute, Absolute light houses no trace of darkness whatsoever,

It is complete and shall be the end of all darkness, light is a warrior banishing and subduing the darkness continuously,

Disclosing to us the root and source of the light we love and appreciate so much, light is what the sun provides, yet the sun is not the source of light,

The sun is temporal, because the dark of night lingers right behind it, and evening joins the totality of the day,

The darkness comes in the duration of a total day, but it is still temporal, there is no equality between day and night, light and dark, only in the measurement of hours

Twelve hours each to be exact, the combination of twenty four to make a total day, yet, the day is interrupted by darkness, but, the light is of greater value, it allows us to see more

It is a light that soothes and is full of peace, It is directional and instructional and admonishes us to, "Beware of the dark" on every level, granting us provisions for seeing our way clearly,

It flows from the source and fountain of absolute light, the darkness is no match, nor is it equivalent to the presence of this light,

Light that goes beyond today and orchestrates and hangs tomorrow, darkness creeping behind the day, as night bringing with it midnight,

Light as a central theme and a hope that cannot be deferred is eternal and absolute, it exposes all entries in the darkness,

Unending is the light because it is absolute, consider, now what is the source of light? All darkness ends at the presence of light which is complete,

A distinct light is absolute and un-fleeting and it knows not the darkness, they are not friends, relatives,or acquaintances,

In the beginning the Creator created light and darkness tagged behind, within it sin lurked, waiting to quench the power of light, showing up as the opposite of light,

Interrupting and intending to eradicate light completely as it vied for a equal stance, tell the darkness no way, I will serve light as light serves me and grants me the capacity to see,

Darkness and night can never be compared to light, it is a disservice, who can see in the dark? with absolute light all can see and not stumble,

This present light dismisses the darkness and demotes it to its base, the origin of darkness only sin can qualify as it lurks to manifest and to destroy,

Only sin would know the dreariness and depth of darkness, Although we must inevitably endure the darkness, we must always choose to walk in light, towards light that is absolute,

How the darkness can stamp out light, but, only from all who are willing to obey the dark, Light is a much worthy validation of the absolute and supreme presence and power of the Creator,

Light helps us to understand where He lives, and that His residence is in absolute light, nothing temporal or limited, His address is not really a place we can even articulate,

Although, we believe that with feigned lips and mouths we can, Have you given it any thought where this present light leads? Its path leads to absolute light, where darkness is no more,

It leads to light that is absolute, where darkness is (poof) no more. No more sin and no more darkness, my heart sighs for pure relief, Just to know and experience this present light, brings me comfort, and allows me to rest, and hope for absolute light and eternal life.


Can you see the light?

Matthew 17:1-13 - KJV

1And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart,

2And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.

3And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him.

4Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.

5While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.

6And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid.

7And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid.

8And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only.

9And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the dead.

10And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come?

11And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.

12 But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them.

13Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist.

      Hey Delphine:

      All praises to the Most High God. I am awe stricken. I know you remember the book this present darkness, it came out in the late 80's. My co-worker and I were talking about this book and I remember this was a deep book, but I also remember how darkness was making a whole lot of noise in it. When I got home the Spirit was pushing the dark out of the way, and gave the nugget, this present light. The rest is His story of how great light really is. Thanks for the encouragement and for commenting. I appreciate and love you!
