From Beginning to End

God made the two great lights, the greater light to govern the day, and the lesser light to govern the night; He made the stars also. God placed them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, and to govern the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good. There was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.                                                 Genesis 1:16-‬19 NASB

God made the two great lights, the greater light to govern the day, and the lesser light to govern the night; He made the stars also.
Genesis 1:16

There was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.                    Genesis 1:19

The first day of creation God said, “Let there be light”, Genesis 1:3. God separated the light from the darkness.

In verses 16 and 19, God created the sun, moon and stars on the 4th day. 
(Thank you Shellie for sharing this revelation).

So what was this light that God spoke and said that it was good on the first day of creation? Well turn from the beginning of God’s word, Genesis, to the end of His word, Revelation.

And the city has no need of the sun or of the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God has illumined it, and its lamp is the Lamb. The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it. In the daytime (for there will be no night there) its gates will never be closed; and they will bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it; and nothing unclean, and no one who practices abomination and lying, shall ever come into it, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life.                   Revelation 21:23‭-‬27 NASB

“the people who were sitting in darkness  saw a great light, and those who were sitting in the land and shadow of death, upon them a light dawned.”                                              Mark 4:16

The glory of the Lord! The Lamb of God. Heaven will have no darkness. Only the Light of God.

O the things we have to look forward to as the faithful children of God. . .

“No longer will you have the sun for light by day, Nor for brightness will the moon give you light; But you will have the Lord for an everlasting light, And your God for your glory. “Your sun will no longer set, Nor will your moon wane; For you will have the Lord for an everlasting light, And the days of your mourning will be over.                                                    Isaiah 60:19‭-‬20 NASB

And there will no longer be any night; and they will not have need of the light of a lamp nor the light of the sun, because the Lord God will illumine them; and they will reign forever and ever.                                            Revelation 22:5 NASB

🌹 Are you looking to the everlasting, eternal light?

But you, why do you judge your brother? Or you again, why do you regard your brother with contempt? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God.

For it is written,

“As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me,
And every tongue shall give praise to God.”

So then each one of us will give an account of himself to God. — Romans 14:10-12

For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that   each one may be recompensed for  his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. — 2 Corinthians 5:10

But I tell you that every careless word that people speak, they shall give an accounting for it in the day of judgment. — Matthew 12:36

For the Son of Man is going to come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and will then repay every man according to his deeds.           — Matthew 16:27

And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds.                 — Revelation 20:12

Convicting words. When every person who ever lived stands before God at judgement we will all be humbled. There will be no “I am better than, richer than, more successful than, etc.”

And the righteous will be right there with the unrighteous. Are you ready to account for the life you are living? Are you living for Christ or content in believing that “believing in Christ” is enough and you can live life your way?

Everyone will be held accountable. Are you ready to face the music?
