John 3:19-21

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 19 And this is the condemnation, that light has come into the world [every man], but men loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil. [All men have a small measure of the light (Christ) that shines in the darkness within them to expose the evil in their hearts as it anonymously pleads with them to turn from their selfish, evil ways; but men, loving their evil ways, ignore the gentle pleadings of God and so remain in darkness, committing sin, walking according to their carnal mind and evil imagination. He who rejects me and does not receive my words, has one for his judge — the words that I have spoken will judge him in the last day. John 12:48]

 20 For everyone who does evil deeds [sins] hates the light [so hates Christ, who is the light] and does not come to the light for fear his deeds will be exposed and reproved. [The true light is given to every man who comes into the world so that he might believe. John 1:7,9. The light shines in darkness, but men do not understand that it is Christ anonymously reasoning with them, attempting to show (reprove) men for their evil. John 1:5, Eph 5:13. Loving their selfish life, and hating the Light (who is Christ) that attempts to correct (reprove) them, selfish men flee from the light (Christ) and so remain in condemnation, walking in darkness, continuing to sin, fulfilling the lusts and desires of their flesh.]

 21 But he who practices truth comes to the light, so that his deeds may be shown to have been produced [formed and powered] through God." [Those who have been experiencing the Spirit's removal of sin from their hearts, love the light and eagerly come to the light for further destruction of sin. Those who have been freed from sin, eagerly come to the light to be directed by God to do works of love, to their joy and God's glory: for we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works. Eph 2:10. A man comes to the light by waiting on God in humble silence, watching and listening in hope of change by Jesus. Those who come to the light, love Christ, as evidenced by their obedience to the truth of what the Light and Word reveals to them; and they come to see more light, which then guides them in all words and deeds.]

1 John 1:6

 6 If we say that we have fellowship with him and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not [live in] the truth. [To walk in darkness is to walk still sinning. From the Word of the Lord within: "Walking in the light is to be guided through life by God; walking in darkness is making your own decisions as to what to do and say."]

Ephesians 5:13

 13 But all things [sins] reproved are made manifest [revealed] by the light. For whatever reveals is light. [Revealed by the light of the word, Jesus, who reproves every man of sin with light that reveals the sins of his heart to him; the light anonymously pleads with us to cease our evil behavior, but men in their darkness do not comprehend the light. While a man may forget the light's reproving him of his sins, when that man dies, he will see every reproof of God in his lifetime played back vividly and they will be his judge, John 12:47-48; he will remember them all and be ashamed that he ignored the gentle pleadings of his creator. From the Word of the Lord within: "There is no darkness but what will be discovered. All sin is darkness." All a man's darkness is exposed to him, either in this life or the next.]
