James 1:17

King James Version

17 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.

When I first started this blog on 24 November 2018, I intended to dig deep into my soul.

With the desire to know more about GOD, and self.

The deeper I went, the brighter things became.

That's the paradox of searching for GOD's truth.

Today, SPIRIT led me to explore GOD's LIGHT.

After all, He was the "Father of lights".

What did I find?

Let Scripture speak for itself:

Genesis 1:1-5

King James Version

1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

2 And the earth was without form, 

and void; 

and darkness was upon the face of the deep. 

And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

3 And God said, 

Let there be light: and there was light.

4 And God saw the light, that it was good: 

and God divided the light from the darkness.

5 And God called the light Day, 

and the darkness he called Night. 

And the evening and the morning were the first day.

Exodus 13:20-22

King James Version

20 And they took their journey from Succoth, 

and encamped in Etham, 

in the edge of the wilderness.

21 And the Lord went before them by day 

in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; 

and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; 

to go by day and night:

22 He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, 

nor the pillar of fire by night, 

from before the people.

Numbers 6:24-26

King James Version

24 The Lord bless thee, and keep thee:

25 The Lord make his face shine upon thee, 

and be gracious unto thee:

26 The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, 

and give thee peace.

Psalm 18:28

King James Version

28 For thou wilt light my candle: 

the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness.

Psalm 19:7-8

King James Version

7 The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: 

the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.

8 The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: 

the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.

Psalm 27:1

King James Version

27 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?

Psalm 31:16

King James Version

16 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant: 

save me for thy mercies' sake.

Psalm 36:9

King James Version

9 For with thee is the fountain of life: 

in thy light shall we see light.

Psalm 44:1-3

King James Version

44 We have heard with our ears, 

O God, 

our fathers have told us, 

what work thou didst in their days, 

in the times of old.

2 How thou didst drive out the heathen with thy hand, 

and plantedst them; 

how thou didst afflict the people, 

and cast them out.

3 For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, 

neither did their own arm save them: 

but thy right hand, and thine arm, 

and the light of thy countenance, 

because thou hadst a favour unto them.

Psalm 80:19

King James Version

19 Turn us again,

 O Lord God of hosts, 

cause thy face to shine; 

and we shall be saved.

Psalm 119:130

King James Version

130 The entrance of thy words giveth light; 

it giveth understanding unto the simple.

Psalm 139:7-16

King James Version

7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? 

or whither shall I flee from thy presence?

8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: 

if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.

9 If I take the wings of the morning, 

and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;

10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, 

and thy right hand shall hold me.

11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; 

even the night shall be light about me.

12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; 

but the night shineth as the day: 

the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.

13 For thou hast possessed my reins: 

thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.

14 I will praise thee; 

for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: 

marvellous are thy works; 

and that my soul knoweth right well.

15 My substance was not hid from thee, 

when I was made in secret, 

and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.

16 Thine eyes did see my substance, 

yet being unperfect;

 and in thy book all my members were written, 

which in continuance were fashioned, 

when as yet there was none of them.

Proverbs 4:18-19

King James Version

18 But the path of the just is as the shining light, 

that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.

19 The way of the wicked is as darkness: 

they know not at what they stumble.

Proverbs 20:27

King James Version

27 The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord, 

searching all the inward parts of the belly.

2 The people that walked in darkness 

have seen a great light: 

they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, 

upon them hath the light shined.

Isaiah 42:1-7

King James Version

42 Behold my servant, whom I uphold; 

mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; 

I have put my spirit upon him: 

he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.

2 He shall not cry, 

nor lift up, 

nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.

3 A bruised reed shall he not break, 

and the smoking flax shall he not quench: 

he shall bring forth judgment unto truth.

4 He shall not fail nor be discouraged, 

till he have set judgment in the earth: 

and the isles shall wait for his law.

5 Thus saith God the Lord, 

he that created the heavens, 

and stretched them out; 

he that spread forth the earth, 

and that which cometh out of it; 

he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, 

and spirit to them that walk therein:

6 I the Lord have called thee in righteousness, 

and will hold thine hand, 

and will keep thee, 

and give thee for a covenant of the people, 

for a light of the Gentiles;

7 To open the blind eyes, 

to bring out the prisoners from the prison, 

and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.

Isaiah 42:16

King James Version

16 And I will bring the blind 

by a way that they knew not; 

I will lead them in paths that they have not known: 

I will make darkness light before them, 

and crooked things straight. 

These things will I do unto them, 

and not forsake them.

Isaiah 60:1-3

King James Version

60 Arise, shine; 

for thy light is come, 

and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.

2 For, behold, 

the darkness shall cover the earth, 

and gross darkness the people: 

but the Lord shall arise upon thee, 

and his glory shall be seen upon thee.

3 And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, 

and kings to the brightness of thy rising.

Isaiah 60:18-22

King James Version

18 Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, 

wasting nor destruction within thy borders; 

but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, 

and thy gates Praise.

19 The sun shall be no more thy light by day; 

neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: 

but the Lord shall be unto thee an everlasting light, 

and thy God thy glory.

20 Thy sun shall no more go down; 

neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: 

for the Lord shall be thine everlasting light, 

and the days of thy mourning shall be ended.

21 Thy people also shall be all righteous: 

they shall inherit the land for ever, 

the branch of my planting, 

the work of my hands, 

that I may be glorified.

22 A little one shall become a thousand, 

and a small one a strong nation: 

I the Lord will hasten it in his time.

Jeremiah 13:16

King James Version

16 Give glory to the Lord your God, 

before he cause darkness, 

and before your feet stumble upon the dark mountains, 

and, while ye look for light, 

he turn it into the shadow of death, 

and make it gross darkness.

Daniel 2:20-22

King James Version

20 Daniel answered and said, 

Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: 

for wisdom and might are his:

21 And he changeth the times and the seasons: 

he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: 

he giveth wisdom unto the wise, 

and knowledge to them that know understanding:

22 He revealeth the deep and secret things: 

he knoweth what is in the darkness, 

and the light dwelleth with him.

Micah 7:7-8

King James Version

7 Therefore I will look unto the Lord; 

I will wait for the God of my salvation: 

my God will hear me.

8 Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: 

when I fall, I shall arise; 

when I sit in darkness, 

the Lord shall be a light unto me.

Matthew 4:16

King James Version

16 The people which sat in darkness saw great light; 

and to them which sat 

in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up.

Matthew 17:1-2

King James Version

17 And after six days 

Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, 

and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart,

2 And was transfigured before them: 

and his face did shine as the sun, 

and his raiment was white as the light.

Luke 12:2-3

King James Version

2 For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; 

neither hid, that shall not be known.

3 Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness 

shall be heard in the light; 

and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets 

shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.

John 1:1-5

King James Version

1 In the beginning was the Word, 

and the Word was with God, 

and the Word was God.

2 The same was in the beginning with God.

3 All things were made by him; 

and without him was not any thing made that was made.

4 In him was life; 

and the life was the light of men.

5 And the light shineth in darkness; 

and the darkness comprehended it not.

John 1:6-13

King James Version

6 There was a man sent from God, 

whose name was John.

7 The same came for a witness, 

to bear witness of the Light, 

that all men through him might believe.

8 He was not that Light, 

but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

9 That was the true Light, 

which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

10 He was in the world, 

and the world was made by him, 

and the world knew him not.

11 He came unto his own, 

and his own received him not.

12 But as many as received him, 

to them gave he power to become the sons of God, 

even to them that believe on his name:

13 Which were born, 

not of blood, 

nor of the will of the flesh, 

nor of the will of man, 

but of God.

John 3:19-21

King James Version

19 And this is the condemnation, 

that light is come into the world, 

and men loved darkness rather than light, 

because their deeds were evil.

20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, 

neither cometh to the light, 

lest his deeds should be reproved.

21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, 

that his deeds may be made manifest, 

that they are wrought in God.

John 8:12

King James Version

12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, 


I am the light of the world: 

he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, 

but shall have the light of life.

John 9:5

King James Version

5 As long as I am in the world, 

I am the light of the world.

John 12:35

King James Version

35 Then Jesus said unto them, 

Yet a little while is the light with you. 

Walk while ye have the light, 

lest darkness come upon you: 

for he that walketh in darkness 

knoweth not whither he goeth.

John 12:36

King James Version

36 While ye have light, 

believe in the light, 

that ye may be the children of light. 

These things spake Jesus, 

and departed, 

and did hide himself from them.

John 12:46

King James Version

46 I am come a light into the world, 

that whosoever believeth on me 

should not abide in darkness.

Acts 26:17-18

King James Version

17 Delivering thee from the people, 

and from the Gentiles, 

unto whom now I send thee,

18 To open their eyes, 

and to turn them from darkness to light, 

and from the power of Satan unto God, 

that they may receive forgiveness of sins, 

and inheritance among them 

which are sanctified by faith that is in me.

Romans 13:11-14

King James Version

11 And that, 

knowing the time, 

that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: 

for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.

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.

13 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; 

not in rioting and drunkenness, 

not in chambering and wantonness, 

not in strife and envying.

14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, 

and make not provision for the flesh, 

to fulfil the lusts thereof.

2 Corinthians 4:6

King James Version

6 For God, 

who commanded the light 

to shine out of darkness, 

hath shined in our hearts, 

to give the light of the knowledge 

of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

Ephesians 5:14

King James Version

14 Wherefore he saith, 

Awake thou that sleepest, 

and arise from the dead, 

and Christ shall give thee light.

Ephesians 5:6-14

King James Version

6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: 

for because of these things cometh the wrath of God 

upon the children of disobedience.

7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them.

8 For ye were sometimes darkness, 

but now are ye light in the Lord: 

walk as children of light:

9 (For the fruit of the Spirit 

is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)

10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.

11 And have no fellowship 

with the unfruitful works of darkness, 

but rather reprove them.

12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things 

which are done of them in secret.

13 But all things that are reproved 

are made manifest by the light: 

for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.

14 Wherefore he saith, 

Awake thou that sleepest, 

and arise from the dead, 

and Christ shall give thee light.

1 Thessalonians 5:4-10

King James Version

4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, 

that that day should overtake you as a thief.

5 Ye are all the children of light, 

and the children of the day: 

we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

6 Therefore let us not sleep, 

as do others; 

but let us watch and be sober.

7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; 

and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.

8 But let us, who are of the day, 

be sober, 

putting on the breastplate of faith and love; 

and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, 

but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

10 Who died for us, that, 

whether we wake or sleep, 

we should live together with him.

1 Timothy 6:13-16

King James Version

13 I give thee charge in the sight of God, 

who quickeneth all things, and before Christ Jesus, 

who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession;

14 That thou keep this commandment without spot, 


until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ:

15 Which in his times he shall shew, 

who is the blessed and only Potentate, 

the King of kings, 

and Lord of lords;

16 Who only hath immortality, 

dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; 

whom no man hath seen, 

nor can see: 

to whom be honour and power everlasting. 


Hebrews 1:3

King James Version

3 Who being the brightness of his glory, 

and the express image of his person, 

and upholding all things by the word of his power, 

when he had by himself purged our sins, 

sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high:

1 Peter 2:9

King James Version

9 But ye are a chosen generation, 

a royal priesthood, 

an holy nation, 

a peculiar people; 

that ye should shew forth the praises of him 

who hath called you out of darkness 

into his marvellous light;

2 Peter 1:16-21

King James Version

16 For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, 

when we made known unto you 

the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, 

but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.

17 For he received from God the Father 

honour and glory, 

when there came such a voice to him 

from the excellent glory, 

This is my beloved Son, 

in whom I am well pleased.

18 And this voice which came from heaven we heard, 

when we were with him in the holy mount.

19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; 

whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, 

as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, 

until the day dawn, 

and the day star arise in your hearts:

20 Knowing this first, 

that no prophecy of the scripture 

is of any private interpretation.

21 For the prophecy came not in old time 

by the will of man: 

but holy men of God spake 

as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

1 John 1:5-7

King James Version

5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, 

and declare unto you, 

that God is light, 

and in him is no darkness at all.

6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, 

and walk in darkness, 

we lie, and do not the truth:

7 But if we walk in the light, 

as he is in the light, 

we have fellowship one with another, 

and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son 

cleanseth us from all sin.

Revelation 1:12-18

King James Version

12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. 

And being turned, 

I saw seven golden candlesticks;

13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks 

one like unto the Son of man, 

clothed with a garment down to the foot, 

and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.

14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, 

as white as snow; 

and his eyes were as a flame of fire;

15 And his feet like unto fine brass, 

as if they burned in a furnace; 

and his voice as the sound of many waters.

16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: 

and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: 

and his countenance was as the sun shineth 

in his strength.

17 And when I saw him, 

I fell at his feet as dead. 

And he laid his right hand upon me, 

saying unto me, 

Fear not; 

I am the first and the last:

18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; 

and, behold, 

I am alive for evermore, 


and have the keys of hell and of death.

Revelation 19:12-13

King James Version

12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, 

and on his head were many crowns; 

and he had a name written, 

that no man knew, but he himself.

13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: 

and his name is called The Word of God.

Revelation 21:23-25

King James Version

23 And the city had no need of the sun, 

neither of the moon, to shine in it: 

for the glory of God did lighten it, 

and the Lamb is the light thereof.

24 And the nations of them which are saved 

shall walk in the light of it: 

and the kings of the earth 

do bring their glory and honour into it.

25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: 

for there shall be no night there.

Revelation 22:5

King James Version

5 And there shall be no night there; 

and they need no candle, 

neither light of the sun; 

for the Lord God giveth them light: 

and they shall reign for ever and ever.
