Binoculars



One day in my house I saw a pair binoculars lying on the shelf of my window that was placed there by someone other than me.
So I looked out of my window with them.
I placed them to my eyes and could not believe what I saw as I peered through them.
It was dark very dark outside and off in the distance I saw a light.
A light that everyone knew was true and filled with love.

Then I saw people pretending to be a light but living in the dark never wanting to go towards the light because what they were doing was wrong and evil.
Then I saw other people heading towards that light filled with truth and love but being stopped by people pretending to have the light. They were promising to help them get to the light but all the while keeping them in the darkness.
This made me sad because of the choices I saw them make which kept them in darkness.

I then stepped away from the window with the binoculars still in hand and looked at myself in the mirror.
I saw that my heart was dark with no light in it as well. This filled me with sorrow because the truth and love light out side I wanted for myself but did not know how to relate with it.
That love and truth was missing from my heart.

Then I turned my binoculars towards the Bible that was on my table.

And you know what amazing thing I saw next?

I saw the one who is that true and loving light dying on the cross for everyone’s darkness (sin). I was seeing my wrongs as well laid bare before His love shown that was within my heart. This was the darkness (sin) that was within me. I was shown that he was dying in my place shedding His blood to clean me. Then I was shown that he had died.
I started to cry because here was one I had never known, one that had complete love. One who died in my place, now dead.
I was broken up inside.
But then I was shown that after three days he arose from the dead alive and appeared unto the men who followed him and unto many others.
I was shown that the ones who followed him preached that he had risen from the dead.
And that the offer of Gods gift of eternal life in a relationship with Him can be had through believing in your heart that he had risen from the dead and by calling out to him as having done so.

His name is
Jesus.
And Jesus can and will turn the lights on for you. He did for me and he will for you.

This removes the darkness of sin.

One can pray,
”Dear Father God in heaven thank you for sending your Son Jesus to die for the darkness (sin) in my life. For taking my wrongs on yourself dying in my place to pay my debt that I could not pay.
I believe this with my heart and cry out to you Lord Jesus as having risen from the dead alive that I can call on you now.
In your name Lord Jesus do I pray.

The birth by the Holy Spirit in ones life can come from one seeing the wickedness within their heart in comparing it to the love of God.
Place your faith in Jesus today

    This is the answer, the way to receive Salvation from Jesus Christ, the Righteous: 4. And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.
    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.
    6. IF WE SAY THAT WE HAVE FELLOWSHIP WITH HIM, AND WALK IN DARKNESS, WE LIE, AND DO NOT THE TRUTH:
    7. BUT IF WE WALK IN THE LIGHT, AS HE IS IN THE LIGHT, WE HAVE
    FELLOWHSIP ONE WITH ANOTHER, AND THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST HOS SON CLEANSETH US FROM ALL SIN.
    8. IF WE SAY WE HAVE NO SIN, WE DECEIVE OURSELVES, AND THE TRUTH IS NOT IN US.
    9. IF WE CONFESS OUR SINS, HE IS FAITHFUL AND JUST TO FORBIVE US OUR SINS AND CLEANSE US FROM ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.
    10. IF WE SAY THAT WE HAVE NOT SINNED,WE MAKE HIM A LIAR, AND HIS WORD IS NOT IN US.
