Darkness always precedes the light. Gen. 1:5 “The evening and the morning, were the first day”. The Lord has decreed that we do not got from Light to dark, but rather we move from darkness to Light. The bright day dawning is in reference to “The Morning Star”, Jesus the Son of God. All hope is never lost as long as He remains, and His Kingdom is without end it is everlasting. He who was hung on a cross, sentenced to pay the price of which he himself was not guilty of, died and was placed in a dark tomb, then sealed by heavy stone. Darkness seemed to have won the battle, silence and despair swept across the land that once just days ago was in jubilant rejoicing. Then out of the darkness bursting forth in radiant LIGHT, Jesus arose from the dead! Shattering the darkness in glorious splendor, that stone moved out of His way ALIVE for evermore was His victory song. Dear brothers and sisters we are indeed in a struggle of darkness and light, we MUST NOT lose Hope, we MUST not yield to despair, our eyes MUST be fixed on Him who ALWAYS triumphs over the darkness. We too must make our stand. We must stand firm on the promises of His Word, and in the midst of the battle, in the midst of dark prison walls Praise and Declare the Name of The LORD our GOD…He came to set us FREE! Darkness is repelled by the Light, ALL is exposed by The Light of Truth.
