The moon will shine like the sun, and the sunlight will be seven times brighter, like the light of seven full days, when the Lord binds up the bruises of his people and heals the wounds he inflicted. Isaiah 30:26
When we think of sunlight we are referring to the radiance of the sun cast on the Earth. Sunlight often speaks of the condition of our environment and the amount of brightness surrounding our outside activities. Man takes advantage of sunlight for the active part of the day but the amount of light often affects our outlook on that day. When the clouds hide our sunlight the darkness gives a gloomy outlook.
God made two great lights ó the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. Genesis 1:16
Perhaps we havenít looked at the sun as a source of light that governs our life for light is critical to sensual beings. Sunlight governs the day for it is a strong light capable of providing light for every creature on the face of the earth. It gives us the ability to see the obstacles in our path and move about freely. Sunlight is so normal to men that if the sun ceased to exist, everyone would panic. The world considers the Sun to be a renewable resource because of its reliability. God predicted that during the end times the sun will be darkened and thinking about that all I can imagine is the panic and chaos that will take place to humble mankind.
Anytime men loose control of their surroundings such as during an earthquake, they go into hysteria. Its not normal for the weather conditions to be in control of them yet the weather conditions are capable of tossing men and women about in any direction like a wet rag. For the most part the weather conditions promote life and provide men with the necessities to continue living.
In the heavens he has pitched a tent for the sun, which is like a bridegroom coming forth from his pavilion, like a champion rejoicing to run his course. It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other; nothing is hidden from its heat. Psalms 19:4-6
Man has built all kinds of shelters, wear sunglasses, carry umbrellas, and seek the shade of trees to avoid the heat and brilliance of the sun. The light of this world affects everyone, but unseen by the world is the eternal light of the Son. Jesus said,
I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life. John 8:12
Every person knows what earthly life is but canít explain true life. Life is not about existing for self-indulgence but how we share life with others. Led by Satan the world is cruel toward its inhabitants making life miserable at times. Jesus Christ entered the world to reveal his fatherís plan and became the light of the world to reveal a true way to live. Without this light from God we would fall victim to the corrupt ways of the world.
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path. Psalms 119:105
The words of our Lord are spirit and life. (John 6:63) The meaning of these words elude some however we learn that man does not live by the food produced from the soil alone, rather his life depends on every word spoken by God. (Deuteronomy 8:3) His Sonís word is a lamp until our feet and light revealing a good way to live. If our life were to depend on human reasoning believing that God rules the entire universe, than our life depends on obedience to every word of God.
The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. John 1:5
Many did not recognize Jesus Christ as the messiah especially the Pharisees who studied his word. God placed a light on his Son Jesus and accredited him with signs and wonders. He used a parable of how the candle was placed so everyone could see the light from it. Then because of the Pharisees unbelief, he was taken to the top of mount Calvary and there was sacrificed as the Lamb of God. On mount Calvary he became the candle placed in plain sight so everyone could see his light.
The bible tells us that,
Light is sweet, and it pleases the eyes to see the sun. Ecclesiastes 11:7
For Christians we are given the promise of life through the light of the Son. We are also looking for the dawn of a new day when the sun of righteousness will rise.
But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings. And you will go out and leap like calves released from the stall. Then you will trample down the wicked; they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day when I do these things," says the Lord Almighty. Malachi 4:2-3
We are looking towards the day when we shall become like him,
The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. Hebrews 1:3
More important we be with him enjoying the light of the heavenly city.
The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp. The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it. Revelation 21:23-24
The sun will no more be your light by day, nor will the brightness of the moon shine on you, for the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory. Isaiah 60:19
On that day the Lord will create,
Then the Lord will create over all of Mount Zion and over those who assemble there a cloud of smoke by day and a glow of flaming fire by night; over all the glory will be a canopy. It will be a shelter and shade from the heat of the day, and a refuge and hiding place from the storm and rain. Isaiah 4:5-6
On that day it will begin to rain but not the normal way it rains on earth.
From the sky huge hailstones of about a hundred pounds each fell upon men. And they cursed God on account of the plague of hail, because the plague was so terrible. Revelation 16:21
