Every day the sun comes up and the sun goes down and so we have what is called day so… where did the word “day” come from? The word day was given to the first day when God said, “Let there be light” and He called the light day, but interestingly enough, the first day wasn’t a sun litten day, it was a light litten day (the physical/material sun was made on the forth day).
The sun is shinning brightly here in the UK today and the temperatures are going up and it’s the 21st June (the summer solstice) and so the sun has now reached its full strength, but there is another light purer than the sun and St John saw the face of this light and said, “…his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.” (Rev. 1:16) Three of Jesus disciples also saw the face of Jesus and they said, “…his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.” (Matt. 17:2)
Moses once talked with the Lord on top of Mount Sinai and unbeknownst to Moses, the light from the True Light was now shining on the face of Moses when he came down from the Mountain after talking with the True Light and we read that it says, “…that Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone while he talked with him (Jesus).” (Exodus 34:29)
So may, “The Lord bless thee, and keep thee: The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee; The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.” (Numbers 6:24-26)
