The Question That Changed My Life

There is always that one Biblical question that really peaks your interest and for me it was when my nephew asked, “How could there be light in Genesis 1:3 before God created the sun in Genesis 1:14?” After a few days of study, the Holy Spirit revealed the answer. This question changed my life, starting a fascination with finding out the answer to the most difficult Biblical questions. If you have not discovered the thrill and enjoyment of searching the Bible and finding answers, I suggest you try to find the answer to your most puzzling question.

The answer to the question above is;

1 John 1:5 states God is light and in Him there is no darkness, and Revelation 21:23 states that the new Jerusalem will have no need of the sun or the moon because the glory of the Lord will illuminate it. If the glory of God is so bright that it can light an entire city, then in Genesis 1:3 when God said let there be light, He was referring to His glory shining through the darkness, not the light of the sun or moon, which He then created, verse 14, on the fourth day.

Notice, what will be true at the end of time was also true in the beginning, God’s glory illuminated the entire space and He will again illuminate the new Jerusalem with His glory at the end of the age.

Father, help us to discover the thrill of finding the answers to the most difficult questions and lead us and guide us into all Your truth. In the name of Jesus I pray, amen.
