The power of God is light and the power of Satan is darkness. This is the way in which the servant of God must discern things. Since God is light (1 John 1:5), it is God alone who defines what light is, just as Satan shows us what the opposite of light is – darkness.
This truth provides in God’s Word the deeper understanding for the spiritually antithetical relationship that exists between God’s light, which represents holiness and goodness and awakening and clarity, and Satan’s darkness, which connotes fear and despair and wickedness and blindness. In this ensuing struggle, darkness eclipses the light, while the light in turn dispels the darkness.
In this teaching Jon Touchstone explains how God makes the distinction between light and darkness. Showing how Jesus became the light of the world, and those that follow after him shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

You may recognize the Latin words, E Pluribus Unum, which are the traditional motto of our United States of America. They mean, “Out of many, One.” As you know, Jesus Christ changed A LOT of things, and on the Day of Pentecost in Acts 2, the newly appointed Lord reversed the last two words and made his motto, “From ONE, Many.” From one Promised Seed came many fruit, both that which he knew from prophecy (Israel), and that which was a Secret until God told him after his Resurrection. That second “many” became One (Body). John’s exciting teaching features the word “seed,” and will both enlighten and inspire you.
The magnitude of what happened on the Day of Pentecost recorded in Acts 2 is still reverberating around the globe. Think about how Jesus’ disciples went from being so terrified that they hid from the Jews, to being so bold in proclaiming the Resurrection truth that it cost them their lives, and set in motion 2000 years of deliverance for millions of people. Each of us has the same gift they received that day, and we too can walk in that holy spirit power.
