1 Thessalonians 5:5,8

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 5 You are all the children of light to be, and children of the day to be;1 we are not to be of the night, nor of darkness. [From the Word of the Lord within: "You are a son when Jesus appears in your heart to guide you. I stand with those freed from sin."]

 8 But let us, who are to be of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for a helmet, the hope of salvation.2 [These believers were still hoping for salvation to come; salvation is to be freed from all sin.]

Ecclesiastes 11:7

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 7 Truly the light is sweet, and it is a pleasant thing for the eyes to see the light of Day. [The light is so sweet and wonderful that George Fox wrote, "Thirty minutes in the light is worth a lifetime." The light of Day is when the light of God, Jesus the morning star, appears in your heart to guide you. Then you are walking in the light with God's guidance in words to be spoken and deeds to be performed, instead of walking according to the lusts and desires of your flesh as you speak and act in darkness and sin.]

2 Peter 1:19

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 19 Also [like we heard God's voice from heaven on the mount] we have the steady prophetic word [the word in your heart]; to which you do well to pay attention, as to a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star [Jesus] rises in your hearts;4 [As the lightning comes out of the east, and shines to the west; so also will the coming of the Son of man be. Mat 24:27. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright morning star. Rev 22:16. He who overcomes, ..I will give him the morning star. Rev 2:26-28. From the Word of the Lord within: "Light comes from faith in the voice. My word is in your heart and mouth. Listen well to my words; attend to them. And to those who obey, he will appear like a magnificent star in your heart. The arising of the light will be unmistakable; it is an ego-shattering experience."]

John 9:4

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 4 We must work the works of Him who sent me while it is daylight, for the night is coming, when no man can work. [Every man is given a measure of light, (daylight or day can mean light having dawned), which if believed, will lead them to become children of the light, guided by the light and ordered to do works for God that glorify Him and are works of righteousness; but if a man dies in his sins, the light leaves him, and man is left in outer darkness, (night), where no man can work righteousness to God's glory.]

1 Corinthians 3:13

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 13 That man's work will be exposed. For the day [of the Lord] will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will try and test every man's work, of what sort it is.2 [For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision, nor uncircumcision benefits anything; but faith, which is energized and demonstrated by works [thus operating] through love. Gal 5:6. Faith must be demonstrated by works of love, which is obedience to the promptings of the Spirit of God's direction; such is the love of God. But he who practices truth comes to the light, so that his deeds may be shown to have been produced (effected, formed, prompted, energized) through God." John 3:21; such works are the only works that survive passing through the fire, which every man must go through.]

Proverbs 4:18

 18 But the path of the just is as a shining light, which shines more and more to the perfect day.

Romans 13:12

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.4 [Near for these believers is the day when the light of God, Jesus the morning star, appears in their heart. The works of darkness are sin, walking according to the lusts and desires of your flesh instead of walking in the light with God's guidance in words to be spoken and deeds to be performed.]
