Our God has always manifested Himself to us in LIGHT, for that is His nature, and He is the source of it. In I Timothy 6:16, Paul speaks of Him as "dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see. Physically, in darkness we are lost, helpless: only in light can we find our way. Likewise, morally, spiritually, without the true light of God's word, we are lost, helpless. Nothing could demonstrate this more clearly than the poor and evil conditions of life in those nations and races which lack this light.

Psalm 119:105 speaks truly, "THY WORD Is a lamp unto my feet, and a light upon my path." Hence, Jesus Christ used this same simile, spoken by the prophets before Him, in John 8:12, " * * I am the light of the world: he that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."

This, alone, is the true spiritual light: as the Apostle John says, "In Him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in dark­ness; and the darkness comprehended it not. * * And this is the condemnation: that light is come Into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, be­cause their deeds were evil." (John 1:4-5 3:1-9) But spiritual truth is real and eternal: if we ignore it now, we must still face it eventually. As Jesus Christ said, "He that rejecteth Me, and receiveth not My words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last days. " (John 12:48)

For a little over three years, Jesus Christ taught His gospel and was in person "The Light of the World". As He said., "As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world". (John 9:5) But after His departure He left behind Him His representatives, to continue to spread His teachings in the world. In the 17th, chapter of John, He remembers them in His great prayer: "I have manifested Thy name unto the Ten which Thou gavest Me out of the world: Thine they were, and Thou gavest them Me; and they have kept Thy word. * * For I have given unto them the words which Thou gavest Tie; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from Thee; and they have believed that Thou didst send Me. I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which Thou hast given Me; for they are Thine. * * I have given them Thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world even as I am not of the world.  * * Sanctify them through Thy truth: Thy word is truth. As Thou hast sent Me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. * * Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on through their word.."

Hence in Matthew 5:14, He told His disciples that now, "Ye are the light of the world in His place. But they, too, lived their lives and are gone; and the great work must still go on. What they did in that first century, YOU must do in this twentieth century: YOU now are, and must be, "The Light of the World."

You, as individuals, must teach our nation and race, so the nation and race will demonstrate to the world the peace, freedom and prosperity which are possible only to those who walk in the Light of Christ's words.

Today, all nations --- even our own --- are being brainwashed by a Satanic pro­paganda campaign to give a false "freedom" and equality" to peoples not ready for it, a so-called freedom" which is only savagery and cannibalism or atheistic darkness and Marxist slavery. Even most of our churches have been infiltrated and corrupted Into following this Satanic line. But we can be "the Light of the World" only if we have Jesus Christ's light.

And there is where many of today's churches have failed: they are willing to pay lip service to Jesus THE MAN, but they want nothing to do with Jesus THE CHRIST. Two modern writers have briefly summed it up in these words: "The reas­on why the churches are discredited today is not because they are too bigoted about theology, but that they have run away from theology. * * If the church is to make any impression on the modern mind, she will have to preach Christ and the cross. Of late, she has not succeeded well in preaching Christ. She has preach­ed Jesus, which is not at all the same thing." (Creed or Chaos    by Dorothy Sa­yers) 

How many popular histories, encyclopedias and school textbooks have blindfolded Jesus by an apoloietic paragraph on 'The Carpenter of Nazareth,' or 'The Great Teacher of Galilee . They read about the seamless 'Robe'---but do not receive new life by the touch of a living faith. They follow the story of 'The Big Fisherman'---but never made the great confession he did, 'Thou art the Christ, the Son of the Living God.' They listen to 'The Greatest Story Ever Told' on the radio, but do not know the Rower of Christ's resurrection. They belong to * * a Christless Christianity. (Rev. Samuel T.  Zwemer.)

Too many churches today are in full retreat: they abandon the only found­ation of their faith, that Jesus Is the Christ and all that opposes this is false; they sacrifice Him on the altar of "brotherhood" with His enemies; they won't read from the Gospel of John, to avoid giving offense to the Jews. Yet, if they only believed that Bible to which they give hypocritical lip-service, they must have read Christ's own words, "For whomsoever shall be ashamed of Me and of My words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed when He shall come in His own glory, and in His Father's, and of the holy angels." (Luke 9:26) These are, indeed, that Laodicean Church of whom Jesus Christ said, ffl-Tn-ow thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold So then, because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of My mouth." (Revelation 3:15-16)

To be "The Light of the World", we must have the only true light, Christ­ianity. Not the diluted substitute which passes under that name today, evading, retreating, giving up principle, to find a least common denominator with paganism and atheism, with yellow, brown and black; but an unflinching stand upon the identity of Jesus as the Christ and upon His Gospel of the Kingdom of God. Where is the true light in the world, today? We look for it in vain, outside the nat­Ions of the true Israel, the Anglo-Saxon, Scandinavian and Germanic peoples. In all Asia, India and the dark races of Africa we find no slightest trace of it: as from ancient times, their course today is steadily downward. But remember, when Christ says "YE ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD " this is a duty, a responsibil­ity we must meet. We must not lower our level to that of the other nations, we must raise it to its highest as a light to all who will see. Christ said, "the ~lory which Thou gavest Me I have given them" --fulfilling Isaiah 60:1-3. 12: Arise, shine, for thy light is come, an=e glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. For behold the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and His glory shall be seen upon thee. And the nations shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of  rising. For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted." Our duty is not to drag this glory in the dust where the dark peoples lie: it is to raise it triumphantly to the highest mountain tops. Its enemies will not accept it voluntarily: they say, "Give us the wealth your God has given you, and become as one of us; but we will have none of your God." This is not the way to truth: the only true good we can do to these nations is to refuse them our aid until their accept it on the same terms on which we got it --- that it is the bounty of our God, given to those who know Him and are loyal to Him. Can we be "The Light of the World" if the lesson we teach is this: Remain savages, and you will receive the wealth you have not earned; worship devils and you will receive the bounty of God?

Our light is that which we received from Jesus Christ --- not from  Buddha, Brahma, or the devil-gods of Africa. It is not the wealth extorted from our plundered taxpayers to be given to strengthen our enemies. We do not spread the light  harnessing ourselves like mules to serve the pagan and the atheist. We can be , "The Light of the World" only by teaching the world that the material good comes only as the fruit of spiritual good; "Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added untn you." (Matt­hew 6:33) There is no other way.
