“God is light, and there is no darkness in him at all” (1 John 5:1, NLT)
1. Chemical rays or actinic. These rays are invisible and can neither be seen or felt.
2. Light rays. These rays can be seen but never felt.
DeHaan writes, “God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. We know the Godhead consists of Three Persons: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The Father corresponds to the chemical rays of sunlight; No man hath seen God at any time. The Son, who is the light of the world, corresponds to the light rays, the One whom we can see but not feel. The Holy Spirit corresponds to the heat rays, since He is felt in the lives of believers but never seen.”
Timeless, spaceless, single, lonely,
Yet sublimely Three,
Thou art grandly, always, only
God in Unity!
Lone in grandeur, lone in glory,
Who shall tell Thy wondrous story,
(Frederick W. Faber)
The Trinity of God is a mystery. It can’t be explained and understand fully. God, if He loses His mystery is not an awesome God. God of the Bible is unique and exclusive. “If you try to understand the Trinity” writes Wilbur Smith, “you will lose your mind. But if you deny the Trinity, you will lose your soul”. Indeed, God is an Awful Trinity! He is the God who reveals Himself freely and yet – full of mystery; “God is light”. Awesome! Praise be to God. Amen.
