Let There Be Light

"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the Spirit of God was moving over the face of the waters. And God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light. And God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness." (Genesis 1:1-4 RSV) (see The Seven Days Of Creation and Seven Days of Creation?)

Let There Be Light

Holy Bible "Let there be light" is one of the most well-known verses of The Bible, but it was actually proclaimed by God twice - the first time, as quoted above, at the Creation that gave physical light on the world; the second time when He sent His Son Jesus Christ to give spiritual light on the world.

"And Jesus cried out and said, "He who believes in Me, believes not in Me but in Him who sent Me. And he who sees Me sees Him who sent Me. I have come as light into the world, that whoever believes in Me may not remain in darkness. If any one hears My sayings and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world. He who rejects Me and does not receive My sayings has a judge; the word that I have spoken will be his judge on the last day. For I have not spoken on My own authority; the Father Who sent Me has Himself given Me commandment what to say and what to speak." (John 12:44-49 RSV)

"Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, "I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." (John 8:12 RSV)

But just as there are creatures who dislike physical light, the evil hate the spiritual light:

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God sent the Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. He who believes in Him is not condemned; he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. And this is the judgment, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one who does evil hates the light, and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does what is true comes to the light, that it may be clearly seen that his deeds have been wrought in God" (John 3:16-21 RSV)
