Carry the Light

"I tell you the truth, if anyone keeps my word, he will never see death. (John 8:51)" "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)" "He will swallow up death forever. (Isaiah 25:8)"

Day after day in this world we encounter its message of death but our God has given us a greater Word. I personally encountered this "Living Word" now over 20 years ago on 7-13-97. Who says that 13 is an unlucky number? In Christ our God (John 8:58) All things are possible! God has swallowed up death forever for His people. During my encounter with God on 7-13-97, I personally saw my death being swallowed up. I was at the end of my rope and offered my life to God to be ended. I said in prayer "God kill me or fix me". The God of Life mercifully took away my death and gave me "new life". I will never see death again as I saw it on that day. Through the power of the blood of Jesus, I shall walk from glory to glory; from light to light held firmly by the one, true God. When I close my eyes for the last time, I will see the bright "light of the world", face to face.

Brothers and sisters, the world needs to hear the word God placed in our souls to counter the world's message of hopelessness and death. Carry the Light, my friends. God is good! His love endures forever! The light of Christ guarantees us that there is no darkness in this world that can overcome God's light, the Word placed in believers that will never fail, even in our weakest moments.
