Over two thousands years ago, God sent a man from heaven to give his life for a ransom for the human race to redeem them from the darkness in this world (Isaiah 60:1). (Colossians 1:12–13); “[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 Jesus” (Acts 26:18).
“[THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE]” (John 3:15).
Yet today, untold numbers of people would rather line up for the vain things of this world rather than lining up for the promise of ETERNAL LIFE.
“[FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD, THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE]. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved” (John 3:16-17).
“[AND THE TIMES OF THIS IGNORANCE] God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to [REPENT]: Because he hath [APPOINTED A DAY], in the which he will judge the world in [RIGHTEOUSNESS] by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof [HE HATH GIVEN ASSURANCE UNTO ALL MEN, IN THAT HE HATH RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD]” (Acts 17:30-31).
“IF ye then be risen with Christ, [SEEK THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE ABOVE, WHERE CHRIST SITTETH ON THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD. SET YOUR AFFECTION ON THINGS ABOVE, NOT ON THINGS ON THE EARTH]. For ye are [DEAD, AND YOUR LIFE] is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory” (Colossians 3:1-4).
“[JESUS CHRIST] the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8), says: “I am the [LIGHT] of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the [LIGHT OF LIFE]” (John 8:12).
“As long as I am in the world, I am the [LIGHT] of the world” (John 9:5).
“I am with you alway, [EVEN UNTO THE END OF THE WORLD]. Amen” (Matthew 28:20).
“[I AM HE THAT LIVETH, AND WAS DEAD; AND, BEHOLD, I AM ALIVE FOR EVERMORE], Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death” (Revelation 1:18).
