JESUS CHRIST - The Light of The World

Updated on June 17, 2018


Jesus Christ – The Light of the World.

When Jesus spoke to 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 8:12


The Holiday that is being celebrated by the Jews during December is not Christmas but the one known as “Hannukah” or “Festival of Lights.”

“Hannukah or “Festival of Lights” is celebrated for eight days commencing on the 25th day of the month of Kislev (November to December) to commemorate the victory of the Jews over the Hellenist Syrians in 165 B.C.


It was during this particular occasion that Jesus Christ pronounced Himself as the “Light of the World.”


What is the meaning of being the Light of the World?


The whole world is in darkness. Why? The whole world is in darkness because evil ruled it and it is separated from God. As it is written in I John 5:19. “That the world is under the control of the evil one.”


The world is ruled by evil powers. Satan is the prince of this world. Since the day when Adam succumbed to Satan, darkness has ruled the world and man was separated from God.


With the fall, Satan brought to the earth the order which he himself had conceived, and with that began the world system of which we are speaking. Satan took advantage of man’s sin and the door threw open to him to introduce into the earth the organization which he had set himself to establish which includes politics, education, literature, science, arts, law, commerce, music –such are the things that constitute the world

.

Everything in the world is under Satan’s dominion. Satan is the ruler of the entire world system. Touching of any of these things is also touching the evil. You may say what about education? What is wrong with studying and gaining a degree. But it has been a source of “pride of life” and has become roots of man’s selfish ambitions. What about business? It has been a source of greed and covetousness. What about arts and entertainment? It has been a source of man’s desire for self-glory. Science has always been used in finding proofs for disproving God.


When Christ came into the world, the world was given the light. The light that leads to eternal life. The world which is under the Satan’s dominion is also under God’s judgment, it is bound for doom. The world is in darkness because it is Spiritually blind and detached from the life of God. The world cannot comprehend the things of God. Christ is the light because he brings illumination to man’s darkened minds. Christ is the light because he bring revelation about God and His Kingdom. Christ is the light because he is the one who reveals to men God’s way of righteousness and salvation.

Prophet Isaiah testified about the light of Jesus Christ as it is written in Isaiah 9:1-2:


“The people walking in darkness have seen a great light. On those living on the shadow pf death a light has dawned.”


Man is separated from God. Jesus is the One who breaks the very great wall of sin between Man and God. Jesus words are life that brings light to men.


“Nevertheless the time of darkness, and despair will not get forever. The land of Zebulun and Naphtali will soon be humbled, but there will be a time in the future when Galilee of the Gentiles which lies along the road that runs between Jordan and the Sea will be filled with glory.”
