Whoever says he is in the Light, yet hates his brother, is still in the darkness

Wig’s Word of God Today 12-29-2010

Whoever says he is in the Light, yet hates his brother, is still in the darkness. 1 John 2:9

1 John 2:3-11, Psalm 96:1-2a, 2b-3, 5b-6 & Luke 2:22-35

If you are still hanging on to someone you hate for years and years now, you are not walking with Christ as your guide. You cannot believe in His Covenant if you are still holding on to a grudge against anyone from any point in your life. “Whoever hates his brother is in darkness; he walks in darkness and does not know where he is going because the darkness has blinded his eyes.” 1 John 2-11 The best way to keep His love in your heart I believe is to live the commandments as John reminds us, “Whoever says, “I know Him,” but does not keep His commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him.” 1 John 2:4
Simeon knew the Truth had been spoken to him by the Holy Spirit as Luke revealed to us in Luke 2:26, “It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he should not see death before he had seen the Messiah of the Lord.”  Holding on to the Truth in all circumstances in our lives allows us to live the commandments and walk in His Light living free of guilt from sin. Simeon points out to Mary that even she will have to endure the Truth spoken by her Son by his statement to His mother, “Behold, this child is destined for the fall and rise of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be contradicted and you yourself a sword will pierce so that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.” Luke 2:34-35 For even she would have to understand that living a life surrendered to God would have to live His teachings as the ways of true blessedness as we learn in Luke 11:27-28. “While He was speaking, a woman from the crowd called out and said to Him, “Blessed is the womb that carried You and the breasts at which You nursed.” He replied, “Rather, blessed are those who hear the Word of God and observe it.”  Be blessed and live the Word of God to show your love of loving Christ.
And so we pray: My Lord and My God, a prayer of thanksgiving for allowing me to rest a bit more than I normally do. We pray today we are always guided by the Light of Christ teaching the Love of God. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
God Bless,

Romans 8:28
Christ To Be
Let’s be sure
Knowing His ways
Perfection of soul
Christ will stay
Walk as He
Blameless and free
Upright mystery road
No dark misery
Love every brother
As you yourself
Seek not troubles
Christ’s love felt
Consecrate each male
Simeon would see
God promised he
Christ to be

About Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

My name is Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins. I first recognize Christ as my Savior in all things. I am married to my best friend and Soul-Mate in Christ, Antonia Cruz-Wiggins. I am a University of Florida graduate of Public Relations, a US Navy Veteran and a Montessori Elementary School Teacher. I love life and God's help of living it! I follow the Light of Christ in everything I do! I love writing poetry about the Lord and I create a new poem from each Scripture I discern in my daily mediations. You can almost follow the poem by looking at the readings for each day. I started sharing this small yet personal scripture study four years ago when one day I was reading the bible and the Holy Spirit moved me to share the verse with a group of about 40 Christian Men in my Emmaus Ministry who get together weekly to celebrate the Lord and talk about His Truth. Since then the number of people I share my study with has grown to over 650. I enjoy an open loving dialog about anything I write and I have strived to write what I know the Lord wants me to share steering clear of offending anyone’s spiritual beliefs because I share my work with people I meet in public when I strike up a conversation about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It took almost 2 years to begin writing what the Holy Spirit leads me to say. I believe that all Christians must unite as One Body of Christ’s Love to accomplish the joy of living with love, honor and respect. I reach out to Humanity to share His Salvation be it Baptist, Catholic, Protestant, Episcopal or any other religion or belief. I seek to mirror His Compassion, His Simpleness, His Charity and His Love. While I am Catholic, I believe we must all unite in the Lord to become One Body in Christ to bring our children back to The Church. I am humbled to share my study with you. Please feel free to comment any time. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is my Joy because I am a Disciple of His Truth. I am honored to share my Bible study with anyone you may recommend. As always, I remain, Yours in Christ, Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

    I would like to forward this link to my Catholic friends and will do so. I googled: “whoever says he is in the light and hates his brother” and your site was the third one up just after bible.cc/… That’s good. How did you know how to get your site up in the forefront? Thanks for the good Word.

      Hi Evelyn,
      I promoted the site through other websites by Google searches and emailing the site owners of our work for the LORD. I believe Google will search the internet for each query as the most recent authorship of the subject searched. Since I author a daily discernment of God’s Word, I am constantly placing new subjects on the web and they give Google more areas of topics to hit. Thanks for the comment and the forward of our work. I seek to share His Truth to accomplish His Will in all things. We encourage comments any time. Enjoy His Truth in my poetry as well.
      God Bless,
