GOD’S WORD FOR JULY 27

GOD’S WORD FOR JULY 27 ~ ~ 1 John 1:5 “….God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all.”

A frequent objection to the truth of Genesis 1 is as follows: If the Sun was not created until Day Four, what was the source of light on Day One?

This question, of course, comes from the evolutionists, who feel they must negate any idea of a Creator. The assumption is that the light on Day One required a source.

Even today, light can exist without a source. Light is so fast, that we are used to thinking that a light turns on immediately when a switch is thrown and is extinguished instantly when the switch is opened. This is not the case. Light actually has to travel, but does so very, very fast. The speed of light is often measured by firing a laser at the Moon to reflect this intense light off one of the mirrors placed for that purpose by Apollo astronauts. The light takes about 1.5 seconds to return to Earth but does not need to be left switched on all that time. A sharp pulse a fraction of a second will suffice. The laser is then switched off, but the light continues traveling without a source.

On Day One, God set the light waves moving. He did not require help in doing so. He is the light of the world, and on the new earth, at the end of time, He will be the only light. There will be no sun or moon. (Revelation 21:23~ ~ “And the city has no need of the sun or of the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God has illuminated it, and its lamp is the Lamb.”)

So, on days one and two, He was the light. Then He added the sun and moon. There is no problem or confusion about this.

His light is in us if we’ve submitted to Him.

John 8:12 “Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; the one who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.”
