Matthew 4:16-17

King James Version

16 The people which sat in darkness saw great light; 

and to them which sat in the region 

and shadow of death light is sprung up.

17 From that time Jesus began to preach, 

and to say, Repent: 

for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

JESUS is the LIGHT of the WORLD.

That fact has been prophesied.

The LORD fulfilled His role.

Scripture testifies of it.

How does the LORD's LIGHT affect us?

How can we benefit from it?

What does the Bible say?

Know more here:

As prophesied:

Isaiah 42:16

King James Version

16 And I will bring the blind 

by a way that they knew not; 

I will lead them in paths that they have not known: 

I will make darkness light before them, 

and crooked things straight. 

These things will I do unto them, 

and not forsake them.

JESUS as LIGHT of the world:

John 1:4-5

King James Version

4 In him was life; 

and the life was the light of men.

5 And the light shineth in darkness; 

and the darkness comprehended it not.

John 8:12

King James Version

12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, 


I am the light of the world: 

he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, 

but shall have the light of life.

John 9:5

King James Version

5 As long as I am in the world, 

I am the light of the world.

2 Corinthians 4:6

King James Version

6 For God, who commanded the light 

to shine out of darkness, 

hath shined in our hearts, 

to give the light of the knowledge 

of the glory of God 

in the face of Jesus Christ.

1 John 1:5

King James Version

5 This then is the message 

which we have heard of him, 

and declare unto you, 

that God is light, 

and in him is no darkness at all.

DANGER for unbelievers:

2 Corinthians 4:4

King James Version

4 In whom the god of this world 

hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, 

lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, 

who is the image of God, 

should shine unto them.

What man needs to be, in connection with the LORD's LIGHT:

Psalm 27:1

King James Version

27 The Lord is my light and my salvation; 

whom shall I fear? 

the Lord is the strength of my life; 

of whom shall I be afraid?

Psalm 119:104-105

King James Version

104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: 

therefore I hate every false way.

105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, 

and a light unto my path.

Matthew 5:14-16

King James Version

14 Ye are the light of the world. 

A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

15 Neither do men light a candle, 

and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; 

and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

16 Let your light so shine before men, 

that they may see your good works, 

and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Luke 11:33

King James Version

33 No man, when he hath lighted a candle, 

putteth it in a secret place, 

neither under a bushel, 

but on a candlestick, 

that they which come in 

may see the light.

Luke 11:34-36

King James Version

34 The light of the body is the eye: 

therefore when thine eye is single, 

thy whole body also is full of light; 

but when thine eye is evil, 

thy body also is full of darkness.

35 Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee 

be not darkness.

36 If thy whole body therefore be full of light, 

having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, 

as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.

John 12:35-36

King James Version

35 Then Jesus said unto them, 

Yet a little while is the light with you. 

Walk while ye have the light, 

lest darkness come upon you: 

for he that walketh in darkness 

knoweth not whither he goeth.

36 While ye have light, believe in the light, 

that ye may be the children of light. 

These things spake Jesus, and departed, 

and did hide himself from them.

Ephesians 5:8

King James Version

8 For ye were sometimes darkness, 

but now are ye light in the Lord: 

walk as children of light:

1 Peter 2:9

King James Version

9 But ye are a chosen generation, 

a royal priesthood, 

an holy nation, 

a peculiar people; 

that ye should shew forth the praises of him 

who hath called you out of darkness 

into his marvellous light;

1 John 1:7

King James Version

7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, 

we have fellowship one with another, 

and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son 

cleanseth us from all sin.

We are to shine as "lights".

For JESUS is our LIGHT.

As always, all we do must be for the GLORY of GOD.

We are never to do it for self.

But for GOD, and others.

That's how we know we are of CHRIST.

He set that very example.

Of loving GOD.

Above all.
