Bible Ballistics: Vol. 14 No. 18 The Light Of The Star Leads On!!!


In this brief post, I simply want to remind each of you that the Light of the World IS Jesus—the Star that led the wisemen, is almost an oxymoron; in the sense that “a” light shone bright in the sky and led them, as it will lead us today, to The” Light of the world!  This baby, come to “save his people from their sins” was shined upon, that we might see where He IS!  But the important thing is to KNOW this precious Lord and Savior personally—to receive the gift that HE IS—The “Lamb of God, who taketh away the sin of the world”!

And there’s another thing I want to remind us of, Christmas IS about Jesus—The Light of the world!  And the LIGHT overcomes the darkness of this world!  My (every true, born-again believer’s) job is to point people to that light; not only the light of that guiding star, but to The One who IS THE LIGHT!  We can trust in His love, compassion, and saving grace!  I don’t have to put out the darkness—I simply have to let HIS light shine through me.  Today, tomorrow, even last Thursday, when the darkness shouted out so loudly, and for every day which will come!

Dearly beloved,

avenge not yourselves,

but rather give place unto wrath:

for it is written,

Vengeance is mine;

I will repay,

saith the Lord.

20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger,

feed him;

if he thirst,

give him drink:

for in so doing

thou shalt heap coals of fire

on his head.

21 Be not overcome of evil,

but overcome evil with good.”   Romans 12:21

God IS good!

Behold, the hour cometh,

yea, is now come,

that ye shall be scattered,

every man to his own,

and shall leave me alone:

and yet I am not alone,

because the Father is with me.

33 These things I have spoken unto you,

that in me

ye might have peace.

In the world

ye shall have tribulation:

but be of good cheer;

I have overcome the world.”  John 16:32-33

And in closing, I want to say that while the darkness may have taken my beloved daughter from my sight—she’s not IN the dark!  She’s been transported, translated and delivered into the loving arms of her Savior and mine—into the arms of Jesus-the “light of the world”!

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 8:12

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and I’ll write again as I can through this “valley of the shadow of death” but it may be a few days.  Thank you for your kind concern and prayers!  May you see the light—receive the light—and reflect the light! My prayer for us all:

For it is God which worketh in you 

both to will 

and to do 

of his good pleasure

14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings: 

15 That ye may be blameless 

and harmless, 

the sons of God, 

without rebuke, 

in the midst of a crooked 

and perverse nation, 

among whom ye shine 

as lights in the world;   Philippians 2:13-15

Amen and Amen!
