1John 11: 1Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha. 2It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick. 3Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick. 4When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby. 5Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus. 6When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was. 7Then after that saith he to his disciples, Let us go into Judaea again. 8His disciples say unto him, Master, the Jews of late sought to stone thee; and goest thou thither again? 9Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world. 10But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him. 11These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep. 12Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well. 13Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep. 14Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead. 15And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him. Now, let’s skip ahead to verse 19.

2John 11:19And many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother. 20Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house. 21Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. 22But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.

3Now, look I want to stop here and point out that this woman, Martha had a revelation. She knew that Jesus was the Son of God. But what she was not aware of was just how Jesus and the Father were co inhabiting the same body. She wasn’t aware that the fullness of the Godhead, God Himself was dwelling in Jesus. She saw the humanity, she knew the humanity, and she understood His obedient relationship He had with His Father, but she was not aware that God Himself was indwelling His Son.

4Brother Branham explained this relationship in his sermon Total deliverance 59-0712 pp. 55-56 55 Jesus was completely, totally man. He could cry like a man, He could eat like a man; He could become like a man. He was completely, totally man in His physical being. And in His Spirit, He was completely, totally God, so He made His flesh submissive to the Spirit that was IN Him. You see, He was tempted in all manners like we are. He was man, not an Angel. He was a man. He had desires and temptations just like we do. The Bible said He did. He was a man, not an Angel above temptation. Hebrews 1 said that He was... Hebrews 1:4 said He was made lower than the Angels. He was man, completely man, that God took a complete man to bring total deliverance; and He filled Him with His Spirit; the Holy Ghost was in Him without measure. And He was tempted like we were. And He was completely God. He proved it when He raised the dead, when He stopped nature, the roaring seas and the mighty winds. When He spoke to the trees, and so forth, they obeyed Him. He was God inside. And He could've been man, for He was Man, but He totally and completely delivered Himself as a Man into the hands of God for the service of God. And He is our example.

556 We are men and women. We're also Christians. If He's our example, let us completely deliver ourselves into the hands of the Holy Ghost, that we might be subjects of the Kingdom of God. He was totally man; He was totally God, but He surrendered His natural parts to His--and His physical parts, and His Own thinking, and His Own doing, and His Own cares, and "I do only that which pleases the Father." There you are. Totally delivered from human beings... The priests come to Him, the great men, and said, "Rabbi So-and-so," and tried to bribe Him into their affiliations and denominations, but He was totally delivered because He trusted in God. Did not the Psalmist say, "Thou will deliver Him, for He has completely trusted in Me"? See? "I will deliver my Darling from the dogs, because He has trusted in Me.

6SHOW US THE FATHER IT'LL SATISFY 56-0422 E-36 Now, it's many times it's been said that no man can see God at anytime, the Bible said so. But the only begotten of the Father has declared Him. Philip, here was very inquisitive; he wanted to see the Father. Says here He said, "I've been so long with you, Philip, and you don't know Me?" Said, "When you see Me you see My Father." In other words, you see the Father express Himself through the Son. Him and the Father were one in the sense that His Father was dwelling in Him, not Him doing the works; He was a Son, Himself, the immortal, virgin born, Son of God. And then in Him was dwelling the God the Father, expressing Himself to the world, His attitude towards the people. See? Well, that's how Christ and God were one. God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself. Now, He said, "When you see Me, you see the Father, and why do you say, 'Show us the Father?'

7JEHOVAJIREH 56-0429 053 "That's the reason people couldn't understand Him. Sometime it was Christ speaking... or was the Son speaking. Other times it was the Father speaking. He was a dual Person. He was one Man, the Son. God was in, which was tabernacling in Him. But what did He do? Did He go around saying, "I'm the Healer." Very contrary, He said, "I'm not the Healer." He said, "It isn't Me that doth the works; it's My Father that dwelleth in Me." And in Saint John the 19th chapter when He was questioned for passing a whole bunch of crippled, lame, withered, halt, blind people, healed one man laying on a pallet, the Father showed Him to go there and heal. Walked away and left the rest of them laying there, they questioned Him. A man packing his bed on the sabbath. Listen to what He said. Saint John 5:19: "Verily, verily, I say unto you: The Son can do nothing in Himself, but what he sees the Father doing, that doeth the Son likewise." Is that what He said? "I do nothing till the Father shows Me a vision first what to do."

8LET US SEE GOD 131 59-1129 …I said, "He was more than... God was in Him. He was a man, but He was a dual Person. One, He was a man; the Spirit in Him was God." I said, "God was in Christ." She said, "Aw, no." I said, "Look, lady, I'll take your own Scripture. He was a man, but He was a God-man. When He went down to the grave of Lazarus, He did weep like a man. That's true. But when He stood there, straightened His little stooped shoulders up, and said, 'Lazarus, come forth,' and a dead man, that'd been dead four days come to life again, that was more than a man. Man couldn't do that. That was God in His Son."

9So Martha, like Peter had the correct revelation that Jesus was the Son of God, but what she did not understand was how God Himself, the very Father of Jesus was also dwelling in Him at that time. And so let’s return to our story.

10 23Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again. 24Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day. 25Jesus said unto her, (Martha, I don’t believe that you understand whose talking to you…) I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: 26And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? 27She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.

11Now, let’s skip forward to when Jesus has met Mary along the way, and He seeing her weep for her brother shows forth His human side, as we pick up at verse

12John 11:32Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. 33When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled,  34And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see. 35Jesus wept. 36Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him! 37And some of them said, Could not this man, which opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died? 38Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it. 39Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days. 40Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? 41Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me. 42And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me. 43And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. 44And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go. 45Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him.

13When Jesus met Mary and saw her great sorrow he as a man could not help but to feel her sorrow and He entered into that sorrow with her. But when he stepped in front of that Grave, and said “Lazarus come forth”, that was more than a man, that was God indwelling His Son.

14From his sermon Believest thou this? 50-0716 P:83Brother Branham said,  Oh, my. That's it. "I am the Resurrection and Life. He that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. Whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die. Believest thou this?” She said, "Yea, Lord. I believe..." Look here. "I believe that You are the Son of God, that You've been said to be that was to come into the world. I believe what You said You was. What God has done for You, that's the truth. I believe every Word of it." "Where have you buried Him?" Oh, my. Here's where a woman told me not long ago, when I was... She said, "Jesus wasn't the... divine." Said, "He was a good man, a good teacher, so forth, be good for people to live by that. Just like with Santa Claus, stories for the children. But," said, "he wasn't divine." I said, "Oh, yes He was Divine." Said, "No, he wasn't." I said, "He was." She said, "Look, I can prove it. When He went down to the grave of Lazarus, He cried like a man." I said, "Yes. I believe He was more than a man. I believe He was a God-man. I believe that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself. I believe God lived in His son, dwelled in His Son, and reconciled the world to Himself by His Son." Do you believe that? I do with all my heart. And He was more than a man. He was God the Son here on earth. Everything the Father had was in Him. And I believe that He was more than a man, He was God-man. And when He went down to the grave, He cried like a man. That's true. But when He stood there, held Himself and said, told them to take away the stone, said, 'Lazarus, come forth.' When He raised the dead, He was more than a man. He was God. He was a man when He was crying, but He was God when He raised the dead. That's right. Yes, sir, He was Divine.

15And I want for you to notice that before Jesus ever died and was raised from the dead by God. And there are 18 verses of Scripture that tells us that God raised Jesus from the dead. Yet, before this ever happened, that Same God who was indwelling in His son, gave us a preview of things that were to come.

16And from his sermon,    Sir would we see Jesus 54-1205 P:21 Look at Jesus at the grave. You don't whether it was a vision or not. He'd seen it beforehand. He said, "Father, I thank Thee that Thou has already heard Me. But I say this for those who stand by." Then He pulled His little self together, and with a Voice that spoke out yonder, when corruption knew its Master... And a man laying there dead, and the stone rolled away, He said, "Lazarus, come forth." And a man that'd been dead for four days, stood on his feet and lived again. Oh, He's still Jesus. Certainly He is. He lives today. And I say it with humility, and knowing that God will judge me. I have seen practically, not long dead, but I've seen three people pronounced dead by doctors, laid out and everything, come to life again by the cause of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. He's the same yesterday, today, and forever.

17The Apostle Paul said in Ephesians 5: 14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

18And the NIV translation read this way, Ephesians 5:14 for it is light that makes everything visible. This is why it is said: "Wake up, O sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you."

19We see this promise also in ISAIAH 60:1 ¶  Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. 2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. 3And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.

20In examining these words, we must know first of all who these ones who are sleeping are: Secondly, we will examine what this means, “Awake, thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead:” And, Thirdly, we will examine this promise that is made to those who do awake and arise: which promise is, that “Christ shall give thee light.

21Now, brother Branham said in his sermon Believest thou this? 50-0716 P:85 I can see Him walking down through that place there then, to the grave. Said, "Take ye away the stone." Look like if He'd have been a gentleman, He'd have took it away Himself. But He asked them women to. Why? You've got your part to do. Yes, sir. You've got to do your part. Said, "Take ye away the stone.” And they took away the stone and the stink was so bad. And they was about to have suffocated there on account of that, a dead human body. Then I can see Him straighten His little self up again; said, "Father, I thank Thee that Thou hearest Me always. But for these that stand by..." is why I said He'd already seen the vision. He knew what was going to happen. Then He cried with a loud voice and screamed, said, "Lazarus, come forth." I believe, brother, if He hadn't have called him specifically by the name of Lazarus, I believe the general resurrection would've took place then. That's what I think about Him. That's right. I believe the resurrection of every dead thing that had ever died would've come out of the grave if He had just said, "Come forth." Yes, sir. But He called, "Lazarus, come forth." I'm glad today that my name's on His Book. "One day He will call too, and I will answer," said Job.

22And from His sermon Revelation chapter 4 pt 1 60-1231 P:76 The same voice that summoned John, "Come up," the same voice that said to John, "Come up," is the same voice that'll summons the church someday (Amen.), summons the church. Also, the same voice that summoned John to come up, is the same voice that summoned dead Lazarus out of the grave, that same voice of the archangel. Christ is the voice of the archangel, "voice of the archangel." See? Oh, that trumpet voice of Christ summoned John to come up, the same voice summoned Lazarus. Did you notice at the grave of Lazarus, He spoke with a loud voice. (Not just said, "Lazarus, come forth." [Brother Branham imitates weakness--Ed.]) "Lazarus, come forth!" It summoned him from the dead. And he answered, "Here am I." And he come from the dead, after he was dead and his body rotten.

23Rapture the 65-1204 P:93 Therefore, the Message calls the Bride together. See? The shout and the trumpet, the same morning with a loud voice He screamed out with that shout, and voice and woke Lazarus. With a loud voice He cried, "Lazarus, come forth." See? And the voice wakes up the sleeping Bride, the sleeping dead. And the trumpet, with the sound of the trumpet, and when it does, it calls... Always a trumpet called Israel to the Feast of the Trumpets (See?), which was the Pentecostal feast, the great feast in the sky and the Feast of the Trumpets... And now, a trumpet denounced a calling together, calling to the feast. And now that is the Lamb's supper in the sky (Now, watch.,)--the assembling together in the Bride, the Feast of the Trumpets, the Wedding Supper. We have seen it in types. Now, watch just a moment before we close.

24Rapture the 65-1204 P:88 No, it's... The first thing is the sounding--or the first thing is the trumpet and a--or a voice--a shout, and then a voice, and then a trumpet. Shout, a messenger getting the people ready... The second is a voice of the resurrection. The same voice that, a loud voice in St. John 11:38 and 44 that called Lazarus from the grave. Getting the Bride together, and then the resurrection of the dead (See?), to be caught up with it. Now, watch the three things take place.

25Rapture the 65-1204 P:96 One rapture is passed. Three's happened in the Old Testament of them prepared who the Word of the Lord came to. See? The Word of the Lord came to Enoch. The Word of the Lord came to Elijah. He was a prophet. See? The Word of the Lord was Jesus. See? Watch in the Old Testament, them Old Testament saints now when this rapture first taken place. Notice verse 50: His loud voice awakened the Old Testament saints just exactly like the loud voice wakened Jesus--or wakened Lazarus. See? The loud voice awakened. And the second is fulfilled in II Thessalonians the 4th chapter. Let's just take a read--read... We just read it a few minutes ago. See? "I would not have you ignorant, brethren, concerning those that sleep, that you sorrow not, even..." That's I Thessalonians 4:12-18. That--that will be the second rapture. The second rapture will be the catching away of the Bride.

26Ephesians 5: 14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

27Who are these sleepers spoken of here. By sleep is signified the natural state of man; that deep sleep of the soul, into which the sinful nature lays dormant; that laziness of spirit, and stupidity, that insensibility of your real condition, in which every man comes into the world, and continues till the voice of God awakes him.

28MATTHEW 25:1 ¶  Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. 2 And five of them were wise, and five [were] foolish. 3 They that [were] foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: 4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. 7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9 But the wise answered, saying, [Not so]; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10    And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. 11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

29Jesus tells us that two sets of virgins are awakened. No one else but these two different groups who are both virgins. One happens to be wise and have not only the Word of God, but they also have revelation on that Word. The other group has the same lamp, or the same word, but have no clue how to use it for they have no oil. 

30Now, we found that the state or nature of those who sleep through this midnight cry, are those who are in a state of utter darkness; a state wherein “darkness covers the earth, and gross darkness the people.” As we pointed out last night, These poor unawakened people, (sinners) have no knowledge of themselves, although they may have much knowledge of other things:

31Because the knowledge of ourselves comes from the knowledge we receive in Knowing God. In Colossians 3:4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. This tells us that When Christ Manifests in His true character we shall do the same. Again we see in 1 John 3: 1-2 the same thing. 1b ¶  therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.The world can never know themselves because they can never know Him. If you do not see the correct understanding of the Godhead, you will never really know who you are, you can't know who you are.  2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

32It is the seeing Him as He really is that allows us to see who we are.

33Now that we understand who this is that Paul admonishes to awake, and who it is that will never awake, let's move on to the next thought.  “Awake, thou that sleepest, and arise up from those who are among the dead ”

34In other words, don't stay there in your stupor. Don't just lie there. I admit that he told us all that is left for the bride is to lay in the presence of the sun to ripen. Yes, he did say to lay in the presence of the Son,  But if you lay in the presence of the Son to ripen and fall asleep, you are going to get burned. “Awake, thou that sleepest, and arise up from those who are among the dead ” Notice, he never said, awake thou that sleepest and continue to lay there. He said, awake and get up, arise and get out from among the dead, those who are still asleep.

35In I CORINTHIANS 15:34 Paul said, Awake to righteousness, and sin not (and disbelieve no longer); for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak [this] to your shame.

36Notice Paul tells us we have a purpose in being awakened, and that is we are to awaken to righteousness. Awaken to right-wise-ness. Awaken to the Light.

37ROMANS 13:11 ¶  And that, knowing the time, that now [it is] high time to awake out of sleep: for now [is] our salvation nearer than when we believed. 12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. 13 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. 14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to [fulfil] the lusts [thereof].

38David said, PSALMS 17:15 As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.

39Notice the words of ISAIAH 60:1 ¶  Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.

40"Arise and shine", that sounds like a wakeup call. ¶  Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. 2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.  3 And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.

41There is the answer, that is why we are to awaken, and get up. It is that the Lord might show forth His glory in us.

42Now, if we look closer at this word arise, it is a command to come forth. This is a resurrection command,  the same command Jesus gave to Lazarus when He called him forth from among the dead.  A person that only wants to lay in bed will never accomplish anything, and in fact will have a tendency to be poor all his life.

43PROVERBS 6:9 How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?  10    [Yet] a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep:  11    So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man.

44Notice in the Book of MALACHI 4:2 we find the Son of Righteousness arise first and then goes forth to do.  But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.

45“Awake, thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead and Christ shall give thee light;”

46Notice there are  three things Paul speaks of here.


48#1) Awake Thou that sleepest. First of all we have defined who it is that sleeps. They are those who are spiritually dead. Those whose spiritual senses are lacking. Thos who can not exercise there spiritual senses. They have eyes, yet they can not see, they have ears and yet they do not hear, they have feeling and ye they can not feel the warming of the spirit of God, they have a tongue and yet they can not taste and see that the Lord is good.  These are those who ony dream they are eating and yet when they wake up to everlasting condemnation will only know to well they did not eat, nor did they drink but they only imagined it taking place, but they never really did eat nor drink.

49ISAIAH 29:8 It shall even be as when an hungry [man] dreameth, and, behold, he eateth; but he awaketh, and his soul is empty: or as when a thirsty man dreameth, and, behold, he drinketh; but he awaketh, and, behold, [he is] faint, and his soul hath appetite: so shall the multitude of all the nations be, that fight against mount Zion. (the Elect)

50FUTURE HOME 64-0802  52-3  the daughter of Zion,... (Remember that's always the Bride. See?)

51So we see that those who sleep only dream that they are eating and only dream that they drink but when they shall awake at the 2nd resurrection and face the white throne judgment they will come to know that it was only a dream to them and they did not eat and they did not drink, and thus they were not filled.

52#2) Awake Thou that Sleepest. There is a call to Awake, a call to come forth from among the dead, a call to come out from among a the spiritually dead, those who sleep. We have studied who that group of sleeping people are and have found that only the wise and foolish virgins awoke and arose when that call came forth to come out to meet him. To come out from among them and I will be not only God to you, but your Father as well.

53II CORINTHIANS 6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in [them]; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.  17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean [thing]; and I will receive you, 18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. 

54Now, God is God to all whether they be angels or man, and yet it is clear here that only those who have heard this cry, the midnight cry to come out from among the dead, the cry to come out from among those who are sleep, only they who hear is He their God and only they who come out will be the true sons and daughters of God.

55MARK 12:27 He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err. How can those who are dead worship, they can't worship, their senses are dead. And by definition God is an object, And then if they can not worship they are dead, and God is not God to them.

56He says come out my children, come out to your Father. 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean [thing]; and I will receive you, 18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. 

57ISAIAH 60:1 ¶  Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.  ( While the world is in darkness, I have come to shine forth my doxa in you,  II THESSALONIANS 1:10 When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed ) in that day.)

58ISAIAH 60:1 ¶  Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. 2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. 3And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.

59#3) Therefore we come to the main point Paul is making here, Awake, thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead and Christ shall give thee light;” Point number three is that the whole purpose of awakening from among those who are asleep is to receive the Light,

60and this Light contains the Life of God.

61JOHN 1:4 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.

62JOHN 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20    For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21    But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

63JOHN 12:35 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.

64Now, light is energy, and the the light gives energy to the believer.
