Light in the Darkness

From Series: It is HIStory!

Isaiah 9:2-5  (ID: 2915)

When we face spiritual darkness - both in the world around us and within our own hearts - where can we turn for relief? Alistair Begg reminds us that only the light of redemption revealed in Christ Jesus can overcome our darkness and deal with our alienation from God. Our celebration of Advent should anticipate the great celebration that will take place when Jesus returns in glory.


22 The people who walked in darkness

have seen a great light;

those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness,

on them has light shone.

3You have multiplied the nation;

you have increased its joy;

they rejoice before you

as with joy at the harvest,

as they are glad when they divide the spoil.

4For the yoke of his burden,

and the staff for his shoulder,

the rod of his oppressor,

you have broken as on the day of Midian.

5For every boot of the tramping warrior in battle tumult

and every garment rolled in blood

will be burned as fuel for the fire.
