With all the bad news and evil that surround us in this modern Babylon, I perceived a still small voice from the Lord in my Bible study this morning in John 1.

Jn 1:3 All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being. What has come into being 4 in him was life,[a] and the life was the light of all people. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.

The message that struck me in verse 5 is that God has it all under control; that light overcomes darkness; encouraging words in these troubled times.

I always say that self-taught man is better than noble laureate. America needs more self-taught men, dear Jewel, homeschool your kids.

Colossians 1:13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

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.

Ephesians 5:8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:

John 12:46 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.

Psalms 18:28 For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness.

Ecclesiastes 2:13 Then I saw that wisdom excelleth folly, as far as light excelleth darkness.

Psalms 27:1 The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

Romans 13:12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.

I've never seen light overcoming darkness. Not in my lifetime.

There are many examples of light overcoming darkness...

The most important being Jesus being crucified, buried, resurrected, and ascended.

There are also many examples of light overcoming darkness in each of our own personal lives...

For instance, you are a believer in Jesus and his Word, which that in itself is light defeating darkness.

Repenting and overcoming your sins is another example of light overcoming darkness, etc.

Its true, the more we repent in this life the less we have to fear the next. Always be on good terms with Yahweh
