God spoke faith : God is faith : We are made in the image of God : Therefore we , I can speak the same thing that God says in Faith and get the same results : What if God said that from this day forward every word you and I speak will automatically come to pass : a lot of us would die right on the spot : That tickeled me to death so we would say : instant death : So from now on I believe I should watch my words very carefully , seeing that God created all things by His words except for man He formed man with His own hands from the dust of the earth : Watching my words from now on !!!

it is only God who has the authority to speak to the problems which has become darkness in our lives, for his light glory to shine manifest in our lives.

Jesus is the Alpha Omega, the Beginning the End. The first creation of all. This light is Jesus. That light tonight will shine out of the darkness for us all this Holy Easter Vigil Saturday Night. Happy Easter.


Solomon's comment on 2015-03-16 01:18:22:

Jesus Christ died on Friday the day Man was created, nothing visible on earth happened on Saturday as it was a Sabbath day. On Sunday the first day of the week where light was created by the Lord God his son Jesus was raised from the death. His main purpose was to die for us for the light of life to be revealed to us through his rise from the death.

Genesis 1:16 God made the two great lights, the greater light to govern the day, the lesser light to govern the night and He made the stars also. Verse 19 There was evening and there was morning, a Fourth day. 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. Revelation 22:5


Jacob's comment on 2015-01-22 20:12:12:

John 1:1 says it all.Jesus himself is the LIGHT spoken in the book of Genesis 1:3.


Donald's comment on 2015-01-21 06:01:17:

In verse two it tells us that the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.God is spoken of as being light. Light moves at around 186,000 miles per second.That could circle the earth about 7 1 2 times per second. A particular sound frequency subjected to water causes sonoluminescence. Consider the possibility of God moving around the globe at the speed of light, speaking at the frequency that causes sonoluminescence.


DEAN's comment on 2015-01-11 08:08:39:

This is one of the greatest prophesy in the Bible.Our spiritual lives are void and without the form of God, the light of Jesus Christ.We are in darkness without Jesus shining within us.This light can only come into being when the Father,almighty God calls us to salvation through his son Jesus Christ.At that moment light enters and the darkness is expelled.When God calls,separates his people into his self again the earth will be full of darkness until God creates a new heaven and earth for his people.God is still calling people in every nation through salvation in his son Jesus Christ.That call and light is universal.I believe God can speak to one person,to a nation or to the universe,LET THERE BE LIGHT, and spiritual revival will come where he has spoken his WORD.

God is light nd in Him is no darkness. Light removes confussion.


ibe tipetet's comment on 2014-09-27 07:03:41:

The bible holds that Jesus is the first born of all creation and the Bible holds that Jesus referred to himself as the light of the world. Hence the light in Genesis 1 3 refers to the person of Jesus, the very light that shines in darkness and darkness comprehend it not.


Wayne Risley's comment on 2014-07-01 11:58:07:

Wow. God called light into existance before he created the light generators. Stars. Where did the light come from. Where will the light come from in Revelation. I leave that for you to think about, but it is awesome. When were the angels created? WHen were the heavenly host created? Is there a different order of spirits than angels? What is Satan? He is never called an angel? God did not create light, but he did create darkness. Why?? What is purpose of evil? What is the purpose of sin? Where will there never be sin?


Moses Njenga's comment on 2014-06-10 21:00:11:

GOD who is a SPIRIT speaks JESUS is the Word Himself into manifestation the Light in a polluted darkened world.


Rich's comment on 2014-06-10 18:58:15:

In context, into darkness God spoke, and there was light. In your life where you are confused, in turmoil, where you have no clarity... look to Him whose Word can be a light to your path.. a lamp to your feet. Separate yourself from the things that would seem to swallow you into their depth... His Spirit and His Word never fail.


Toni's comment on 2014-06-10 06:32:45:

The first words God spoke and commanded was there to be light. God is light. In Him is no darkness at all.In order to come out of darkness and see, we must come to the light and the Light of the World is Jesus. Light is the essence of God 's glory. It 's a great light that shines brighter than the sun.


dharam's comment on 2014-06-10 05:21:28:

The spoken Word is powerful. God spoke and something happen. Light came into being because of the Word being spoken. Jesus indeed is the light of the world too and without him we would have still been in darkness.


Olabode's comment on 2014-06-10 00:15:56:

Jesus is the light, that is, the light that cannot be hidden. No wonder the bible says the light shine in the darkness and the darkness comprehended it not. Jesus was tempted in this world, but at the end, he was victorious sitting at the right hand side of God. All genuinely born again Christian should work in the light fruit of the spirit not in darkness work of the flesh .


Cheba's comment on 2014-04-10 03:43:24:

I would not have a different opinion save to consolidate the fact that God does not do things alone not that He can 't but because He is a triune God.So Jesus is the One spoken as the Light that came in the dark world
