Christmas: The Light Has Come

by Pastor Roy Esposito
  • John 1:4-5 “In Him was the life, and the life was the light of men.”
  • Life – ZOE – The principle of life
  • “The light of men” – Light that makes sense of human existence.
  • ”…not comprehend it” – The darkness is unreceptive to the light and doesn’t understand it; hence, it cannot control it.
  • Luke 2:10-11 – ”Good tidings of great joy” – The light is not only greater than the darkness; it will also outlast it and give us the ability to make sense of God’s purposes.
  • John the Baptist – a Prophetic voice sent to “prepare the way of the Lord.”
  • Luke 1:76-79 – Zacharias’ Rhema word over John.
  • 1 Corinthians 12:27 – “Now, you are the Body of Christ.
  • Luke 1:80 – “The child grew and became strong in the Spirit and was in the desert till the day of his manifestation to Israel.”
  • A Present Word: The prophetic voice is honed, in the desert, before it’s revealed in God’s perfect timing.
  • Isaiah 60:1-5 “Arise, shine for your light has come….”
