In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
John 1:4-5 KJV
We are in our fifth session of our lesson of the Gospel from John. We are reading the verse 4 and 5 for the second round where we will explore the life which is light of men. Jesus is explained as Word of the beginnings but now he is explained as life that is light of men.
We have spoken in the previous lesson about the life that carries no light. In this lesson we are going to explore this life that is the light from Genesis chapter 1.
And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. Genesis 1:3-4 KJV
Here is this life which is light showing up in the day which was called the first day. We follow the creation account to the second and the third day but in the fourth day another light is created which takes over as the Solar System. This time only on the fourth day the Sun shows up.
And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day. Genesis 1:3-4, 14-19 KJV
The Sun is now created on the fourth day and the Solar System holds this Universe as we know it together.
One day when Jesus was on earth he reveals that the Light that was holding the Universe in the first three days was The Son and not the Sun.
The Sun is a visible shadow that does the Work that the Son is doing in the invisible Kingdom.
What the Solar System is doing in this visible universe is exactly what The Son is doing in the invisible Kingdom.
Let us first go to the place where Jesus reveals Himself as The Light that divides “the day” and “the night from what we see the First Day could not have been 24 hours because the Sun only came on the fourth day.
It may be possible that what is known as a day from day one to three is an invisible Solar System that I call Sonship system. For when planets revolve around the Sun we speak of Solar System but when the lights that we are are revolving around The Son which is the Greater Light we call that Sonship.
If we understand that the Sun is both Light and Life to the Universe how can we fail to understand that The Son is the First Light And Life that was called on the first day to appear.
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
James 1:17 KJV
He is the Father of lights. We are those lights that are revolving around the Great Life and Light of men (lights).
I promised you that we will look at the place where Jesus reveals Himself as this Light that shone even before the Sun was there:
I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world. John 9:4-5 KJV
I will leave you with this first one then the others will be in the next session.
In this session we wanted to show you the Life which is Light and He is the Son who lit the universe from day one to three.
We have also shown you that the Solar System began on day 3.
This means that the invisible Kingdom has the Son who is forever the Life and Light around whom all the other lights revolve without end.
Peace unto you.
