LIGHT of the GENTILES

 

Job 33:27-30

King James Version

7 He looketh upon men, 

and if any say, 

I have sinned, 

and perverted that which was right, 

and it profited me not;

28 He will deliver his soul from going into the pit, 

and his life shall see the light.

29 Lo, 

all these things worketh God oftentimes with man,

30 To bring back his soul from the pit, 

to be enlightened with the light of the living.


The Bible says there is a "light of the Gentiles".

We will never again walk in darkness.

The man who was prophesied, came to light.

To BE the LIGHT.

Isaiah 42:6-7

King James Version

6 I the Lord have called thee in righteousness

and will hold thine hand, 

and will keep thee, 

and give thee for a covenant of the people, 

for a light of the Gentiles;

7 To open the blind eyes, 

to bring out the prisoners from the prison, 

and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.


Isaiah 49:6

King James Version

6 And he said, 

It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant 

to raise up the tribes of Jacob, 

and to restore the preserved of Israel: 

I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, 

that thou mayest be my salvation 

unto the end of the earth.


Which was confirmed by the devout Simeon, who faithfully looked out for the LORD JESUS.

Luke 2:25-32

King James Version

25 And, 

behold, 

there was a man in Jerusalem, 

whose name was Simeon; 

and the same man was just and devout, 

waiting for the consolation of Israel: 

and the Holy Ghost was upon him.

26 And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, 

that he should not see death, 

before he had seen the Lord's Christ.

27 And he came by the Spirit into the temple: 

and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, 

to do for him after the custom of the law,

28 Then took he him up in his arms, 

and blessed God, 

and said,

29 Lord, 

now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, 

according to thy word:

30 For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,

31 Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;

32 A light to lighten the Gentiles, 

and the glory of thy people Israel.


And when the Lord Jesus started His ministry, He confirmed it Himself.

John 8:12

King James Version

12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, 

I am the light of the world: 

he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, 

but shall have the light of life.


John 9:5

King James Version

5 As long as I am in the world, 

I am the light of the world.


John 12:46

King James Version

46 I am come a light into the world, 

that whosoever believeth on me 

should not abide in darkness.
