Acts 22: 6 “About noon as I came near Damascus, suddenly a bright light from heaven flashed around me.”
Madam X is an Elim Church planter in an Islamic nation. One Saturday in September 2016 having never been told the truth about Jesus she began to meditate on a verse from the Quran in Surah 1:6 “Guide us in the right path”. Suddenly in the corner of the room a ‘bright light’ filled the room as Jesus revealed His identity to her. She fell to the floor and her life was never the same again!
Paul in his testimony remembers the time of the bright light. It wasn’t the middle of the night and the light shone in the darkness. This was noon, it was light, but THE light was so much brighter.
I have heard first-hand accounts from many who have met Christ and every one of them saw a bright light. The light of Christ is more than just shining brightly in the darkness, any light can do that, but it shines brightly at noon, in the light. That is bright! Christ can penetrate the light, any light. He is brighter than the mid-day sun.
Whatever hope this earth can produce or joy and power, Jesus beats them all!
