[October 24]
I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on Me should not abide in darkness. John 12:46
THE Holy Spirit is the light of the church, by which we are being specially guided into the truth. The Apostle Peter tells us that we have a more sure Word of prophecy, whereunto we do well that we take heed as unto a light that shineth in a dark place. (II Peter 1:19) The light on the path of the just "shineth more and more unto the perfect day." We are still in the dark place, and shall be until the darkness gives way and the day is here. And so, as Peter says, we have need of the Word of prophecy "until the day dawn." Thus we find that one scripture helps to elucidate another. Z'13-324 R5339:1(Hymn 260)
