5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

The best definition of light comes from the Bible.

and a light unto my path.

Light is that which makes manifest.

14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
John 1:9 (KJV)
9 That was the true Light, which lighteth (illuminates) every man that cometh into the world.
Importance of Light
- Light is for illumination – this produces clarity and refinement, innovation, sound judgement.
- Light gives leadership – Daniel 12:3 (KJV)3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever. – To admonish, to teach, to inspire.
It gives guidance and it leads – the star that led the wise men to where Jesus was born. – John 8:12 (KJV) 12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. You follow the light.
Matthew 28:19 (KJV)
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Go and shine in all nations, admonish all nations and teach all nations.
- Light gives empowerment- it gives energy which is the capacity to perform. Colossians 1:29 (KJV) 29 Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily. I have the energy of God at work in me. 2 Corinthians 3:5 (KJV)5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God; – our ability and efficiency is of God! We have the ability of Gods spirit at work in us because we have the light of God in us.
- Light is for Signs and Seasons – Genesis 1:14 (KJV) 14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: – This is more than the moon, sun and stars Isaiah 8:18 (KJV) 18 Behold, I and the children whom the Lord hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion. Hebrews 2:13-14 (KJV) 13 And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me. 14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
2019 – THE YEAR OF LIGHT!!!!
Gross darkness will cover the earth but the darker the night, the more we will shine!!! We are entering into a new phase of the church in the ministering of the gospel that has never been known before. The knowledge of God is increasing like Daniel said that knowledge shall increase. God increased the capacity on men to comprehend!!! The importation of knowledge.
There is a release of many angels of God I to the earth. They had not been here before for the work they have to do because the time is short and we will see signs and wonder like never before. We are not alone and we will be receiving angelic support!
Peter had to let the onlookers on the day of Pentecost to know that this was what Prophet Joel spoke about.
We are moving closer to the coming of Jesus. We are not preparing for the second coming of Christ for sth will happen before that according to the Bible as we are to come with him during that second coming. At the last trump, the dead in Christ shall rise first and we that are alive shall be caught up with him. The whole earth will mourn for him. All eyes shall see him for 24hrs!!! He shall come with the stars and we are the stars!!! Hallelujahhhh!!!
1 Thessalonians 5:5-8 (KJV)
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.
We are children of light!
Ephesians 5:8 (KJV)
8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
Ephesians 5:8 (NIV)
8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light.

5 And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house.
When you say this. You bring a season of peace into their lives. We are for signs and seasons!
Luke 10:6 (KJV)
6 And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again.
My peace shall rest upon the house. Throughout 2019, everywhere I go, I carry a season of love, victory, peace

Philippians 2:15 (KJV)
15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

Romans 12:21 (KJV)
21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
Begin to trust more than ever before, the power of good over evil. Evil does not have as much power as good.
Love is greater than hate! You will always win with love and good.
MY LIGHT WILL GIVE:
SIGNS AND WONDERS
In 2019 overcome evil with good. Holding a gun against someone who is not armed makes you a weak man! Refuse to be weak! The greatest power in this world comes from your mouth. Be a master of words like Jesus. Hatred starts when someone says the wrong thing! Right words will come from you when you have the right thoughts.
I am a problem solver in 2019!!! We will not only do good, we will win!!! Learn like Jesus how to do good. Like when he was about to be arrested. My words are filled with power in 2019!!
Ephesians 5:18 (KJV)
18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
Never be empty. Always be loaded be filled with the Spirit!!!
Changing seasons everywhere and demonstrating the power of the Holy Spirit!!! Hallelujahhhh!!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR OF LIGHT!!!
