Let's Go Back to the Bible

No night there!

The first time you read the word “night” in the Bible is on Day One of Creation. God said, “Let there be light” (Gen. 1:3), and “God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night” (1:5). When it wasn’t day (i.e., light), it was night (i.e., dark). From the beginning of time, man has always known of the dark of night. Man has experienced the sadness, the weeping, the fear, the pain, the uncertainty of the night. Some nights are “darker” than others.

Fast forward (quickly!) to the last time you read the word “night” in the Bible. In describing the wonders of heaven, God said, “There shall be no night there…for the Lord God gives them light” (Rev. 22:5). Heaven will be one eternal “day”! There will be no night, no dusk, no hint of darkness at all! There will be no wrapping up today’s activities or “see you tomorrow”! The overwhelming glory of the reward of heaven will never slow, never dim, never pass, never end!

Everything negative that you associate with “night” here will not enter the gates of eternal day!
