“He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.”John 1:8 NIV
This verse speaks of John the Baptist who came as the fore runner to Jesus to prepare the hearts of the people for His first coming. John was not the messiah and this is why it says that he was not the light. But John had a vital ministry and anointing in preparing the hearts of the people for Jesus coming.
Today we as believers in Christ are light bearers for the Lord and are called to sow His word and water it through prayer. The body of Christ is called to be the hands and feet of the Lord. The Lord is raising up voices throughout the earth who are preparing God’s people for His soon coming. Daily we are called to draw near with our whole heart.
No man knows the day or hour. We simply prepare our hearts as we draw near to the Lord and grow in Him. As we draw near our hearts and lives are transformed and prepared. Now is not the time to sleep and slumber. Flee from the deeds of darkness and seek the Lord with your whole heart.
