Doctrine - Light



Module 1 Lesson 2: Mysteries of the Scriptures – Light

Now that we’ve already dealt with the history of the OAC, warts and all without the typical sugar coating, let’s delve into the doctrine of “spiritual” interpretation. Here we will look at how the word “light” is interpreted “spiritually”.

Creation or natural coincidence?

The original document was updated in Afrikaans on May 10th, 2011.

Original Afrikaans:
 “…Kom ons soek nou antwoorde op die vraag in lesing 1, hoekom God volgens GENESIS 1 mense maak terwyl daar volgens SPREUKE 8 alreeds mense bestaan het? Wat is dan die verskil tussen die mense?…”

English translation:
“…Come let us seek the answers to the question in lesson 1, why God according to GENESIS 1 made people whereas according to PROVERBS 8 people already existed? What is the difference between these people?…”

To the author and readers of the original document:
It’s only in your own mind that you think Proverbs 8 says people already existed before the earth was created.

Let us recap:
Proverbs 8:31 Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.

You falsely added “even before the earth was made” to this verse yourself. Be careful about adding to Scripture (Deuteronomy 4:2, Deuteronomy 12:32, Proverbs 30:5-6, Revelation 22:18-19)!

Original Afrikaans (continued):
 “…1 KORINTHIERS 15:44. 'n Natuurlike liggaam word gesaai, 'n geestelike liggaam word opgewek. Daar is 'n natuurlike liggaam, en daar is 'n geestelike liggaam, VERS 47 wys “Die eerste mens was uit die aarde aards, die tweede mens is die Here uit die hemel”.
ONTLEDING: In VERS 40 “En daar is hemelse liggame en aardse liggame; maar die heerlikheid van die hemelse is anders as dié van die aardse” sien ons dat die heerlikheid van die hemeIse Iiggame anders is as die van die aardse, omdat volgens
VERS 44 ‘n natuurlike liggaam gesaai word en ‘n geestelike liggaam word opgewek. Om hierdie stelling meer duidelik te stel sien ons dat die aardse mens eerste bestaan het en dat hy net aardse belange gehad het en was nie bewus van die heerlikheid van God nie. Want in JOHANNES 4:24 word vir ons gesê:
JOHANNES 4:24 God is GEES en die wat Hom aanbid, moet Hom in GEES en in WAARHEID aanbid. Die tweede mens het God dus geskep deurdat Hy die aardse mense OMSKEP het in ‘n HEMELSE mens sodat die hemelse mens bewus kon word van Sy heerlikheid. Hier wil ek nou stil staan om vir jou te wys hoe God die aardse mens omskep het in ‘n hemelse mens…”

English translation:
“…1 Corinthians 15:44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body, VERSE 47 shows “The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven”.
ANALYSIS: In VERSE 40 “There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another” we see that the glory of the celestial bodies is different to the glory of the terrestrial bodies, because according to VERSE 44 a natural body is sown and a spiritual body is raised. To clarify this statement we see that the earthy man existed first and that he only had earthy interests and wasn’t aware of the glory of God.
Because in John 4:24 we are told:
John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. The second man was thus created by God when He converted the earthy people into HEAVENLY people so that the heavenly people could be aware of His glory. Here I want to pause to show you how God converted the earthy man into a heavenly man…”

To the author and readers of the original document:
It’s really not that complicated, the Bible states it quite simply.

The first MAN was Adam:
1 Corinthians 15:45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.

The first MAN Adam was formed from the dust of the ground (earthy):
Genesis 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

The first MAN Adam would return to the ground after his disobedience:
Genesis 3:17-19 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

MAN today carries the same physical (earthy) resemblance (image) of the first MAN Adam because we are his physical descendants:
1 Corinthians 15:49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

When we die, our physical bodies will return to dust – EARTHY dust!

Original Afrikaans (continued):
 “…In GENESIS 1:2 sê God die aarde (die mens) was woes en leeg en in duisternis.
ONTLEDING. Dit is die toestand waarin die AARDSE mens was…”

English translation:
“…In GENESIS 1:2 God said the earth (the man) was without form and void and in darkness.
ANALYSIS: This is the condition wherein the EARTHY man was…”

To the author and readers of the original document:
No, go read that whole chapter again very carefully. The EARTH had to be created first so that the first man Adam could be formed out of the dust of the ground – EARTHY dust.

Original Afrikaans (continued):
 “…1.  WOES. Beteken deurmekaar…”

English translation:
“…1.   BLUSTEROUS. Means disorganized…”

To the author and readers of the original document:
Let us recap:
The Old Testament wasn’t originally written in Afrikaans, but in Hebrew.

Strong’s definition for the Hebrew word tôhû which is used where the Afrikaans word woes (“without form” in the KJV) is used:
From an unused root meaning to lie waste; a desolation (of surface), that is, desert; figuratively a worthless thing; adverbially in vain: - confusion, empty place, without form, nothing, (thing of) nought, vain, vanity, waste, wilderness.

If you don’t understand English, then for the benefit of our Afrikaans readers:
Met ander woorde soos ‘n woestyn, onbewoonbaar want daar was niks.
Die HAT Afrikaanse verklarende handwoordeboek se definisie vir woes:
1. Onbewoon en onbewerk,
2. Wild, ru, onbeskaaf,
3. Buitensporig, abnormaal baie,
4. Losbandig,
5. Ontstuimig

A dictionary and a concordance will really prove useful before jumping to false conclusions, especially when reading Scripture not written in the original language.

Original Afrikaans (continued):
 “…Die aardse mens se lewe was gevul met aardse dinge en dit het God nie behaag nie, want Hy wil in Gees en waarbeid aanbid word…”

English translation:
“…The earthy man’s life was filled with earthly things and it didn’t please God, because He wants to be worshipped in Spirit and truth…”

To the author and readers of the original document:
That is a blatant LIE!

After He created man and everything that he had made, it was very good.
Genesis 1:31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Original Afrikaans (continued):
 “…2.  LEEG. Beteken daar was niks…”

English translation:
“…2.   EMPTY. Means there was nothing…”

To the author and readers of the original document:
Let us recap:
The Old Testament wasn’t originally written in Afrikaans, but in Hebrew.

Strong’s definition for the Hebrew word bôhû which is used where the Afrikaans word leeg (“void” in the KJV) is used:
From an unused root (meaning to be empty); a vacuity, that is, (superficially) an undistinguishable ruin: - emptiness, void.

Original Afrikaans (continued):
 “…Die AARDSE mens se Lewe was leeg ten opsigte van die heerIikheid van God want hy (die aardse mens) het die heerlikheid van God nie geken nie…”

English translation:
“…The EARTHY man’s Life was empty with respect to the glory of God because he (the earthy man) didn’t know the glory of God…”

To the author and readers of the original document:
How could his life have been empty if God blessed them and placed them in the garden of Eden (paradise)? They had direct access to the tree of life and commanded to eat from it!

Genesis 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

If the EARTH is a MAN according to your logic, why would God tell MAN to multiply and replenish (fill up) the EARTH? Do you read it as MAN that must fill up the MAN?

Original Afrikaans (continued):
 “…ROMEINE 8:5-9, sê die wat vleeslik is bedink vleeslike dinge maar die wat geestelik is geestelike dinge, omdat wat die vlees bedink vyandskap teen God is, want dit onderwerp hom nie aan die wet van God nie…”

English translation:
“…ROMANS 8:5-9, says they that are fleshly are fleshly minded but they that are spiritual, spiritual things, because a carnal mind is enmity against God, because it is not subject to the law of God…”

To the author and readers of the original document:
Allow me to contribute more verses to this discussion.

Being spiritually minded does not mean reading the Bible out of context or “naturally”:
Galatians 5:22-24 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

Being spiritually minded means you seek the will of God above your own fleshly lusts (carnal mindedness) and desires:
Colossians 3:1-3 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.

Original Afrikaans (continued):
 “…3. DUISTERNIS. Hier is dit nou noodsaaklik dat ons eers saI stilstaan by GENESIS 1:3 Hier sê God: Laat daar lig wees. En God het skeiding gemaak tussen lig en duisternis. Eers in GENESIS 1:14 op die vierde dag maak God die SON, MAAN en STERRE. Dit wat verantwoordelik is vir die lig op die aarde, maar daar was alreeds deur God lig gemaak op die eerste dag.
Dit Bewys dat die lig wat God op die eerste dag gemaak het NIE dieselfde lig was wat ons van die SON, MAAN en STERRE ontvang nie.
Kom ons kyk nou wat se verklaring kry ons in die bybel daarvoor.
- EFESE 1:18 “.. verligte oë van julle verstand.”
- EFESE 5:13 “..want alles wat openbaar word, is lig.”
- PSALM 119: 130. “Die opening van U woorde bring lig, dit maak die eenvoudiges
verstandig.
VERDUIDELlKING. Openbaar beteken om iets bekend te maak of te verduidelik sodat dit verstaan kan word. M.a.w. as ‘n saak aan my verduidelik word en ek verstaan dit, dan sê ek; "EK SIEN”. Dit meen dat ek lig sien ten opsigte van daardie spesifieke saak. LIG beteken dus VERSTAANBAARHEID.
Ek glo amper nie dit is nou nodig om ‘n uitgebreide verklaring te gee van duisternis nie, omdat dit net die teenoorgestelde van lig is. DUISTERNIS beteken dus ONVERSTAANBAARHEID, of ONKUNDE …”

English translation:
“…3. DARKNESS. Here it is crucial that we first pause for a moment at GENESIS 1:3 Here God said: Let there be light. And God divided the light from the darkness. Only in GENESIS 1:14 on the fourth day did God make the SUN, MOON and STARS. These are responsible for light on the earth, but there was already light on the first day.
This proves that the light that God made on the first day was NOT the same light that we receive from the SUN, MOON and STARS.
Come let us see what explanations we can get in the Bible for this.
- EPHESIANS 1:18 “..eyes of your understanding being enlightened”
- EPHESIANS 5:13 “..for whatsoever doth make manifest is light”
- PSALMS 119:130. “The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.
EXPLANATION. Manifest means to reveal or explain something so that it can be understood. i.e. if a matter is explained to me so that I can understand it, then I say; “I SEE”. That means I see the light with regards to that specific matter.
LIGHT thus means COMPREHENSIBILITY.
I almost believe it’s unnecessary to elaborate further on what darkness is, because it’s just the opposite of what light is. DARKNESS thus means INCOMPREHENSIBILITY, or IGNORANCE…”

To the author and readers of the original document:
In verses 3-5 light (singular) is divided from the darkness on the first day. The word used here for light in Hebrew is 'ôr, which means illumination.

In verses 14-19 lights (plural) are placed in the firmament to give light (singular - 'ôr) upon the earth. The word used here for light in Hebrew is mâ'ôr, which means a luminous body.

Maybe you’ll understand it better with a little birthday “parable”:
Daddy is at his child’s birthday party and there’s a cake with little candles on it. At some point everyone gathers around the cake and mommy realizes she doesn’t have something to light the candles with. Daddy happens to carry a lighter in his pocket, so when mommy says “anybody got a light?”, daddy happily takes the lighter out of his pocket. With one flick of his bic he is able to light all the candles before returning the lighter to his pocket. One light, many candles, get the picture?

Lights lit with one light can also provide light

God created the sun, moon and stars on the fourth day and “ordained” them as “light bearers” to divide the day from night, and for seasons, and for days, and years, and to give light upon the EARTH.

Genesis 1:14-15 And God said, let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.

The proof is visible to us every single day:

  •          In a 24 hour period we have day and we have night
  •          In a 365 day period we have summer, autumn, winter and spring
  •          The cycle of all these seasons is called a year and it takes 365 days for the EARTH to complete one orbit around the sun

All these periods and cycles are unique to the EARTH.

Do you know why God created the sun, moon and stars only on the fourth day? Because there is no other God besides our heavenly Father. Neither the sun nor the moon nor the stars are gods because they are only creations of God. They are mere objects that serve a purpose in God’s creation. The celestial bodies are there to serve a purpose, they’re not there to be served.

God is the source of all creation, even light, He doesn’t need the sun because God is also light.

1 John 1:5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

The light of God cannot be confined in a box because light takes on different forms. Light is varied in the visible and invisible spectrums. Think of all the shades and colours for instance that can be seen by the naked eye. A rainbow is a colourful example. Then you get the invisible spectrum such as infrared light and ultraviolet light which we can’t see with the naked eye. What you alluded to in your example is a form of “enlightenment”. God is much more than mere “comprehensibility”. About 2000 years ago something a lot more significant than mere “comprehensibilty” took place, Old Testament prophecies were fulfilled when Jesus Christ was born in flesh, He is the light of the world in more ways than one (Matthew 17:2, Luke 9:29, John 8:12, John 9:5, Acts 9:3-5, Acts 22:6-8 and Acts 26:13-15). When you read the verses in brackets and in context of the chapters they were written in, you will hopefully notice that it wasn’t the sun that was so bright, but The SON!

His word is also a lamp unto my feet, a light unto my path (Psalms 119:105).

There is an awesome future promise with regards to light. The sun and moon will have served their purpose as “light bearers” and “time keepers” and their services will no longer be required.

Revelation 21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.

Revelation 22:5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.

According to Revelation it’s the glory of God, and the Lamb instead of “comprehensibility” that shines when there’s no need for the sun or the moon. Read also what happened to Moses after he was with God on mount Sinai for forty days and forty nights (Exodus 34:29-35). Besides the allegorical sense, there is also the Divine sense which should not be ignored. You can’t pigeon-hole Almighty God into a one-dimensional comprehension with arguments of the imagination.

Original Afrikaans (continued):
 “…SPREUKE 4:18 - 19. Terwyl die pad van die regverdiges is soos die lig van die moreglans wat al helderder word tot die volle dag toe. VERS 19 Is die weg van die goddelose soos duisternis, hulle weet nie waaroor hulle sal struikel nie.
Nou kom ons terug na die aardse mens waarin God ‘n geestelike denkwyse wil plaas. God skep ten eerste in hom lig, verstaanbaarheid ten opsigte van die heerlikheid van God. Dit vind plaas deurdat iemand die Bybel vir my verklaar.
1 KORINTHIERS 15:49 bewys bogenoemde stelling: Soos ons die beeld van die aardse gedra het so sal ons ook die beeld van die hemelse dra. VERS 50, want vlees en bloed kan die koninkryk van God nie be-erwe nie. Nadat God volgens GENESIS 1:4 skeiding gemaak het tussen LIG en DUISTERNIS was dit aand en more die eersie dag.
VRAAG. Waarom aand en toe more, en nie liewer MORE EN AAND nie?
ANTWOORD. Die maan skyn in die aand en hy het ‘n sagte lig terwyl die son ‘n baie skerp lig het. As iemand uit die donkerte direk in die skerp lig van die son kom sal hy verbrind word…”

English translation:
“…PROVERBS 4:18-19. But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day. VERSE 19 The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble.
Now we come back to the earthly man wherein God wants to place a spiritual mindset. God first creates light in him, understanding in terms of the glory of God. This takes place when someone explains the Bible to me.
1 CORINTHIANS 15:49 proves the statement above: And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. VERSE 50, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God. After God according to GENESIS 1:4 divided the LIGHT from DARKNESS it was evening and morning the first day.
QUESTION. Why evening and then morning, and not rather MORNING AND EVENING?
ANSWER. The moon shines in the evening and it has a soft light while the sun has a very bright light. If someone comes out of darkness directly into the bright light of the sun he will be blinded…”

To the author and readers of the original document:
Allow me to refresh your memory. The sun, moon and stars were only created on the fourth day. Even before the sun, moon and stars were created it was evening and morning on the first day (Genesis 1:5), it was evening and morning on the second day (Genesis 1:8) and it was evening and morning on the third day (Genesis 1:13). There was darkness upon the face of the deep (Genesis 1:2) before God said “Let there be light” (Genesis 1:3), that’s why the subsequent days also begin with evening and morning. It has absolutely nothing to do with the sun and the moon. Their only purpose is to divide the day from night, for seasons, days, years and to give light upon the EARTH (Genesis 1:14-15).

Original Afrikaans (continued):
 “…ONTLEDING. Die aardse mens was in duisternis ten opsigte van die heerlikheid van God en die maan se lig moes eers vir hom skyn…”

English translation:
“…ANALYSIS. The earthly man was in darkness in terms of the glory of God and the moon’s light first had to shine for him…”

To the author and readers of the original document:
The only earthy man in Genesis was Adam and he was only created on day six (Genesis 1:27-31), two days after the moon was created. He was NOT in darkness in terms of the glory of God either, he had direct access to the tree of life in the garden of Eden (Genesis 2:9) which is the paradise of God (Revelation 2:7). We should not be obsessed with the moon.

Original Afrikaans (continued):
 “…Dit is die opklaring van die bybel vanaf GENESIS 1 tot OPENBARING die laaste hoofstuk, terwyl die son van geregtigheid, Christus, eers later vir kom sal opgaan. Dit sal hom vermaan en tereg wys ten opsigte van sy goddelike verpligtinge. (Die beloftes wat hy gemaak het met opnaamste ens.) Indien ‘n mens vermaan word nog voordat hy die skrifte verstaan sal hy volgens JESAJA 59:10 “Ons tas rond soos blindes” want hy sal nie weet waaromtrend die dinge gaan nie…”

English translation:
“…This is the clarification of the Bible from GENESIS 1 to REVELATION the last chapter, while the sun of righteousness, Christ, will only rise later for come. It will admonish him and rebuke him with regards to his godly duties. (The promises that he made when he was taken up etc.) If a man is admonished before he even understands the Scriptures then he will be according to Isaiah 59:10 “We grope like the blind” because he won’t know what these things are about…”

To the author and readers of the original document:
Please go read the whole chapter of Isaiah 59. Sin makes a person sick, it impacts your whole being. The people acknowledged that their relationship with God was only superficial, and that their relationships with their neighbours was characterized by unrighteousness. The author thinks he understands the Scriptures but it appears as if he is the one groping around like a blind person!

Original Afrikaans (continued):
 “…In HANDELINGE 9 kan ons dit ook sien waar Saulus tot bekering gekom het
In 2 KORINTHIERS 4:4 sien ons dat die verligting van die evangelie van die heerlikheid van Christus is die beeld van God…”

English translation:
“…In ACTS 9 we can see where Saul came to repentance
In 2 CORINTHIANS 4:4 we see that the enlightenment of the gospel of the glory of Christ is the image of God…”

To the author and readers of the original document:
Unbelievers are spiritually blinded by satan to remain in their unbelief. The Holy Spirit places the understanding of the glory of Christ in a believers heart. He opens the spiritual eyes to see and believe. Read the whole chapter as well as John 12:37-50, Acts 26:12-18, Ephesians 2:1-3, Colossians 1:13-23 and Hebrews 1:1-4.

Original Afrikaans (continued):
 “…ONTLEDING. Die verligting beteken weereens die verstaanbaarheid van die evangelie van Christus wat die beeld van God is. God is volgens 1 JOHANNES1:4, LIG, JOHANNES 1:4, ‘n WOORD. In GENESIS 1 sien ons God na Sy beeld, m.a.w. God omskep die aardse mens tot ‘n hemelse mens deur die aardse mens ‘n verstaanbare geestelike denkwyse to gee…”

English translation:
“…ANALYSIS. The enlightenment means once again the comprehensibility of the gospel of Christ which is the image of God. God is according to 1 JOHN 1:4, LIGHT, JOHN 1:4, a WORD. In GENESIS 1 we see God in His image, i.e. God converts the earthly man to a heavenly man by giving the earthly man an understandable spiritual mind set…”

To the author and readers of the original document:
How often do you read the Bible? Did you ever check the verses you’re quoting? Please go and read those verses again and see if they correspond with your statements.

Original Afrikaans (continued):
 “…As ons die hele hoofstuk van GENESIS 1 lees, sien ons dat God Sy skepping voltooi deur alles op die aarde te maak plus die mense op die sesde dag, maar in
GENESIS 2:5 lees ons “Was daar nog geen struike in die veld op die aarde nie, en daar was nog geen mens om die grond te bewerk nie.
Nou wat het van die plante en die mens geword wat God op die 3de en 6de dag gemaak het?…”

English translation:
“…If we read the whole chapter of GENESIS 1, we see that God completed His creation by making everything on earth plus the people on the sixth day, but in GENESIS 2:5 we read “And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.
Now what became of the plants and the man that God made on the 3rd and 6th day?…”

To the author and readers of the original document:
Genesis 1 is the summary and Genesis 2 from verse 4 onwards is the detail of how Adam and Eve were created on the sixth day. Context is very important if you want to understand these verses. The original Scripture wasn’t written in chapters and verses, the first three verses of Genesis 2 should actually be at the end of Genesis 1. The context of Genesis 2:5 is about Eden, not the whole earth.

“Plant” is a very broad term and your argument uses it very loosely. When we start to read the verses more carefully we’ll see that there are specific details which your question seems to have overlooked.

Day three:
Genesis 1:11-13 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the third day.

  •          Grass (deshe' in Hebrew)
  •          Herb yielding seed (‛eśeb zâra‛ zera‛ in Hebrew)
  •          Fruit tree (‛êts perı̂y in Hebrew)
Fruit trees and grass

Day six:
Genesis 2:5 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.

  •          Plant of the field (śı̂yach śâdeh in Hebrew)
  •          Herb of the field (‛eśeb śâdeh in Hebrew)

If you start a garden or an orchard, is the garden or orchard already established because there are already plants growing there? If a farmer buys a field and decides to grow wheat, does he just leave the field as it is and hope to reap wheat simply because there is already grass growing wild in his field? Plants of the field would not have been there before Adam. Read a little further then you’ll see that the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden where he put the man whom he had formed (Genesis 2:8).

Herbs of the field

We read about the herb of the field a little later:
Genesis 3:18-19 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

          Original Afrikaans (continued):
“…Dit bring ons by die einde van Lesing 2 van Module 1…”

English translation:
“…This brings us to the end of Lesson 2 of Module 1...”

Thus ends the second attempt by the author of the original document to insult your intelligence. 

Summary:
In a spiritual sense, there is only one true light and His name is Jesus (John 8:12, John 9:4-5), as His children we are called to be children of light (John 12:35-36, Ephesians 5:8-11, 1 Thessalonians 5:1-5, 1 John 2:9-11). Unfortunately not all light leads to the truth, we need to be wary of satan who also transforms himself into an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:13-15, Galatians 1:6-10, Revelation 12:7-9).
