And so we have the prophetic word confi rmed, which you do well to take heed as a light that shines in a dark place...
There is a Light at the end of the tunnel. However, there is also a Light through the tunnel that can shine in the hearts of our understanding, which will guide us safely through the darkness of ignorance, to a place of peace, security and confidence. Although some may promise many things in the name of science and technology, there is only one light ray of hope for eternity. Even as medical research strives to prolong life, it is a short-lived hope. For as the sand in the hourglass pours through the narrow opening, so our earthly lives pour through the opening of time, because our time here is measured. Whether we face this fact or not, these bodies are destined to die. However, our spirits do not, but will live in the light of mercy or in the darkness of error for eternity. Our days here are short and our time to leave could be nearer than we think, so we should listen to the words of eternal truth.
We can easily listen to all the other voices of those that stumble in the blindness of doubt, or we can follow the true Light of all hope that is willing and able to take us home, even through our darkness nights. Two choices, two roads with two different destinations, but there is only one journey.
EPHESIANS 1: 18
... The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling...
