Elder Jerry Lightsey Ė Godís People now have a more sure word of prophecy than they that lived in the days of the Old Testament. It is the difference between night and day. The light they walked by spiritually was like walking in the moonlight, which is not direct light as the sun, but reflected from the sun. They walked in the midst of shadows. Jesus came and dispelled the shadows, being the express image of the Father speaking to us as our prophet directly, and not at sundry times and in diversí manners in the form figures, the law, and many prophets. We would do well to heed what He said, left on record by the Apostles, being eye witnesses of what He said and did.
His coming brought a new day of which He is the light of. It shines in a dark place, and there no darker place than the soul of man that is dead in trespasses and sin. When light shines into that dark place it is blinding and makes one want to turn away. It comes with light to dispel the darkness, warmth to comfort the soul, and love that draws one toward it. The more a person knows about Him the more they want to know. The prophecy of old time came from men moved by the Holy Ghost. It was the truth then, and it is true now. The more people experiencing the light of the Day Star takes heed to the scriptures, The Holy Spirit will lead them in understanding of them. They will feel the Day Star rising in their heart dispelling the shadows more and more. They will see their ways have not been Godís ways, and if they start changing what they do to conform to what the scriptures teach, they will see their path clearer.
The word of the Lord becomes a light at their feet. Instead of getting entangled on every hand by the enemies of their faith, the way will be clean before them. Before the light came, every way seemed right, now they see the ways of natural man lead to destruction and death. They begin to rely on their inner strength which brings victory after victory in the battles of life, , knowing the source of that light is greater than any obstacles they will ever face.
