What awesome physical and spiritual meaning when on Day 1 God spoke The Word - Let there be light and there was light!
3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
THE WORD was and is the light of all life. THE WORD was the light (energy) source for God's creation of the earth and the heaven(s). THE WORD came in the flesh as JESUS CHRIST to be the light of life to all mankind.
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life .
THE WORD - JESUS CHRIST is the light of our eternal dwelling place!
Revelation 21:23 And the city (New Jerusalem) had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
Revelation 22: 4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.
5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.
THE WORD - JESUS CHRIST - THE LIGHT I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Revelation 22:13

Thanks for sharing this joyous message of Jesus-the True Light, Sister Dorothy! Beautiful is our Lord and Saviour! God Bless you richly! Dave
Amen here too. In Revelation it speaks of needing no sun in that heavenly place. I so hope scientific minds stay out of that. That one would be considered "whatever", for believing that the way God explains something is exactly how it was, is pitiful. (As if they know more). God Bless. billy
