Let There Be Light
by Cara Hanson

Genesis 1:3-5
(3) And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.
(4) God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.
(5) God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning–the first day.

When God wanted light, He didn’t flip on a light switch. Unlike man, there was no bulb to replace, no muttering under his breath, no trip to the hardware store to buy more bulbs, along with a new power tool that he would never use but was on sale for a limited time only. No, when God wanted light, He spoke it into being. That’s why He is such an awesome God! Even Thomas Edison, the lighting Wizard (genius) of Menlo Park, could not achieve such a feat.

In the mid 1980s, someone invented a device called The Clapper. This sound -activated electrical switch allowed people to turn lights on with only a clap of their hands. Suddenly people all over the world were singing, “Clap on! Clap off!” and relishing their new authority. They thought, “Oh, the thrill of finally being in control of something! The power is so intoxicating!” But the power was fleeting, and God had the last laugh. The Clapper could also sometimes be triggered by coughing, a dog’s bark, or loud appliances. Imagine how embarrassing it would have been for God if the heavenly hosts sang praises at His creation, and the lights went out. Thankfully, there was no such design flaw in His plan.

Our three young children have trouble understanding many of the Old Testament records, but the plagues on Egypt really grabbed their attention. What was most upsetting to them was not the thought of being infested with lice or locusts, but rather the Plague of Darkness. They could not let this one go. “But they had flashlights, right, Mommy?” How interesting that these kids would rather have frogs jump out of their Cheerios than have total darkness and have to… (shudder) go to bed.

God considers darkness to be a plague. We often focus on the other more “dramatic” plagues, but we can’t ignore the fact that He was trying to communicate something here. What is it about darkness that is so horrible? Children often develop a fear of the dark, and with good reason. For one thing, we can’t see where we are going. We also can’t see what is near us or what might hurt us.

Psalm 119:105
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.

One of the reasons God wants us to study the Bible daily is that we need it for our daily guidance. When we neglect His Word, we often can’t figure out why our lives are going in the wrong direction. I don’t know about you, but when the power goes out, I turn on the light switch almost every time I enter a room. It takes me a few clueless seconds before I slap my forehead and realize why the light isn’t working. There is no power source! Similarly, when we finally plug into God’s Word, the light comes on in our minds and hearts.

Psalm 19:8
The precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the LORD are radiant, giving light to the eyes.

Shining Our Lights
Children are drawn to the light. Our kids love Christmas lights so much that I decided to use them to help us all walk better for our Lord. I explained to them that Jesus was the light of the world (John 8:12). Now that we can’t physically see him anymore, someone else had better keep that light shining. Every time they looked at the Christmas tree, the lights were supposed to remind them to “shine their lights” for Jesus. They would grin from ear to ear like a Cheshire cat, so we still use the expression, “Shine your lights!” year-round to spur them out of a slump. They can relate to this concept because they understand that the tree looks far prettier with lights than without. Of course, the same principle should be applied to adults.

When God said, “Let there be light,” it wasn’t just for that moment in time. He wants our light all of the time. When we stray from the light of His heart, we walk in darkness. God is still saying, “Let there be light” to our hearts. If you have ever fumbled around in the middle of the night and bumped into furniture, you have experienced pain that signals to your brain, “Please turn on a light.” God loves us as His own children, and He does not want us to get hurt.

The god of hurt, Satan, has “blinded the minds of unbelievers so that they cannot see the light of the gospel” (2 Cor. 4:4). Since that is the case, we should be cranking up our floodlights to draw people to the heart of God. I have seen many unbelievers become attracted to the light shone by Christians. I have also seen unbelievers become confused by Christians who swear, lie, or treat others badly. If people are already walking in darkness, what good will we do them if we are also walking in darkness? That would just be the “blind leading the blind.” After all:

1 John 1:5-7
(5) This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.
(6) If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth.
(7) But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.

Our kids have the right idea to despise the darkness. Light is warm and comforting, and it reflects the character of both our Lord and our Father. One day, Christians will bask in this light eternally. The following verse is reassuring to both children and adults:

Revelation 22:5
There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light…

What a loving Father we have! He has given us His word that one day we will no longer have to grapple with darkness. There will be no more light bulbs or even lamps. Best of all, there will be no more spiritual darkness, just the light of God forever.

Until the eternal kingdom of light, we still have a responsibility before the Lord to walk in light. The good news is that this is a pleasant, not grievous, duty. When we walk in light, our lives are blessed, and we are in close fellowship with our Lord. We have joy and peace in our hearts knowing that we are doing God’s will. How many times have we heard from our parents (or ourselves) to turn the light off when we leave a room? When it comes to our daily walk, God says it is okay to “leave the light on” and LET THERE BE LIGHT!

A blow-by-blow account of the Navy SEAL raid that took down Osama bin Laden has revealed that the al-Qaeda chief was unarmed and shot dead before the troops burst into his room in his Pakistan compound.
The book, No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama bin Laden, was written anonymously under the name Mark Owen, who was one of the SEAL Team Six members who saw the terror leader die in May 2011.
Bin Laden apparently was hit in the head when he looked out of his bedroom door into the top-floor hallway of his compound as SEALs rushed up a narrow stairwell in his direction.
The book says that the mission was quite unlike the popular version of what went on at the house in Abbottabad.
Owen wrote that a member of the elite squad saw the terror leader as he ducked into his bedroom, and the soldiers, who were climbing stairs to the third floor, followed.
He said: ‘We were less than five steps from getting to the top when I heard suppressed shots. BOP. BOP. I couldn’t tell from my position if the rounds hit the target or not. The man disappeared into the dark room.’
While various media outlets reported that bin Laden was armed and showed no intention of going quietly, the soldier wrote that the notorious terror boss was already taking his last breaths.
Owen writes that as bin Laden lay dying, he and another commando ‘trained our lasers on his chest and fired several rounds. The bullets tore into him, slamming his body into the floor until he was motionless.’

SEAL Team Six veteran says ‘special operations community’ wants Obama out of the White House
A copy of the book, obtained by The Huffington Post, described bin Laden as wearing a white t-shirt, loose-fitting tan pants and a tunic.
While photographing the terror leader’s body, two guns were found in the room, but neither was loaded.

Target: A member of Seal Team Six shot and killed Osama bin Laden during the elite squad’s daring raid of his compound in Abbotabad, Pakistan
‘Owen’ wrote: ‘He hadn’t even prepared a defense. He had no intention of fighting. He asked his followers for decades to wear suicide vests or fly planes into buildings, but didn’t even pick up his weapon.
‘In all of my deployments, we routinely saw this phenomenon. The higher up the food chain the targeted individual was, the bigger a p**** he was.’
The book was originally slated to hit book stores on September 11 but will now come out seven days earlier
It has already stirred a considerable amount of controversy as it was revealed that the Pentagon, the CIA, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and even the White House appeared to have no idea that the book was being written.
The autobiography may also be heading to the big screen, as it was revealed on Sunday that director Steven Spielberg met with the retired commando to discuss making a movie about his experience.

Commando: A photo purported to be of Matt Bissonnette was published by Business Insider on Thursday. MailOnline has decided to blur the image so as not to show the soldier’s face; he is now facing death threats from al Qaeda in addition to possible criminal prosecution

Hollywood knocking: Director Steven Spielberg and HBO co-president Richard Plepler have both met with the Navy SEAL to discuss turning the book into a movie
In addition to Spielberg, who directed ‘War Horse’ and ‘Saving Private Ryan,’ Dreamworks and HBO’s Richard Plepler have met with the author.
‘He is still talking to DreamWorks and Spielberg,’ a source told the New York Post.
This would be the third movie to tell the story of the raid that killed the mastermind of the September 11 terrorist attacks.
‘Zero Dark Thirty,’ directed by Oscar-winner Kathryn Bigelow will open December 19. Sony pushed back its opening to after the presidential election after it was revealed Bigelow was granted special access to the Pentagon and the CIA to make the movie.
The Weinstein Company has suggested it could release its own film about the May 2011 commando raid in Pakistan, ‘Code Name Geronimo’ before the election.

In the dark: The Pentagon said that it has not seen a copy of the book, despite regulations designed to keep former and current military personnel from spilling military secrets
But for the retired Navy SEAL-turned-author, the story is giving him some unwanted attention.
An official al-Qaeda website on Friday posted a photograph and the name of the former Navy commando responsible for the book, calling him ‘the dog who murdered the martyr Sheikh Osama bin Laden.’
Meanwhile the head of U.S. Special Operations Command told current and former troops that the military would take legal action against anyone found to have exposed sensitive information that could cause harm to fellow forces.
‘We will pursue every option available to hold members accountable, including criminal prosecution where appropriate,’ Admiral Bill McRaven wrote in an open, unclassified letter emailed to the active-duty special operations community.

Tension: The raid of bin Laden’s Abottabad compound was watched by President Obama and his closest advisers in the Situation Room of the White House
‘As current or former members of our special operations community, authors have a moral obligation, and a legal duty, to submit their works for pre-publication security review,’ the admiral wrote.
Not long after the announcement of the book, identified the soldier – Matt Bissonnette, 36, who retired from service shortly after the bin Laden raid.
By Friday, the man’s name, photograph and age had been posted on the ‘the Al-Fidaa Islamic Network’ online forum, one of two websites officially endorsed by al-Qaeda, according to Evan Kohlmann, founder of the New York-based security firm Flashpoint Global Partners.
It was followed by comments that called for the man’s death, including one response that said, ‘O’ Allah, kill every one of them,’ and another that said, ‘O’ Allah, make an example of him for the whole world and give him dark days ahead.’

Terror house: Bin Laden’s compound has since been torn down
Publisher Dutton, an imprint of Penguin Group, asked news organizations on Thursday to withhold his name.
But that didn’t stop the Associated Press, which later confirmed the the report through their own sources, and circulated the information through its subscribers.
The revelation had alarm bells ringing in military circles.
Pentagon spokesman Lt Col James Gregory told MailOnline that the release of a former special ops soldier’s identity can be worrisome.
He said: ‘We protect the names of our special ops personnel for security reasons. Any time names are revealed, it’s a concern.’
Lt Col Gregory also joined a chorus of U.S. agencies who claim they had no knowledge of the book before Wednesday, a possible violation of regulations that bar current and former troops from spilling military matters and national security issues.

Watching: In this undated image from video seized from bin Laden’s compound, the Al-Qaeda chief watches a TV programme showing an image of President Obama
Lt Col Gregory said that since the soldier – who retired shortly after the bin Laden raid – is now a private citizen, the military could refer the investigation to the Department of Justice.
McRaven’s open letter to the active-duty special operations community said books and films about special operations teams could be useful educational tools, and the military would work with potential authors, but current and former service members would be held accountable if they endangered the safety of U.S. forces.
It took approximately 15 minutes to find – and kill – Osama bin Laden in his Abottabad compound.
Involved in the mission in the early morning hours of May 2, 2011 were 79 commandos that arrived in off in military helicopters from Jalalabad, Afghanistan.
The first helicopter foundered above Bin Laden’s compound and crash-landed in the outer courtyard.
The other helicopter landed outside the house.
The SEAL team forced their way into the compound by blowing the door with explosives.
The commandos shot three men and a woman – whom U.S. officials said had lunged at them – as they went up floor-by floor.
On the third level, three of the Navy SEALs saw bin Laden standing at the end of a hallway as they reached the top of the steps.
Two women in the room took positions in front of the terror leader to protect him.
One of the soldiers grabbed the women and shoved them away while one of the SEALs behind him fired at bin Laden.
The al-Qaeda boss was shot once in the chest and once in the head.
Code-word ‘Geronimo’ is sounded to White House Situation Room, a signal that their target is dead.
The SEALs then photograph the body for identification.
On their way out of the compound, the soldiers blow up the broken-down chopper.
The teams fly back to Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan.
Bin Laden’s body was then flown to a waiting naval ship, that buried at sea.
He said there was ‘a distinct line between recounting a story for the purposes of education or entertainment and telling a story that exposes sensitive activities just to garner greater readership and personal profit.’
Kohlmann said the former Navy SEAL could now be in physical danger from al-Qaeda sympathizers seeking revenge for bin Laden’s death, or hoping to gain prestige for themselves.
‘They have a photo of the individual, they have his name, his age,’ Kohlmann said. ‘I wish that all this was bluster, but there are a lot of would-be jihadists out there, including some in North America. This is the ideal opportunity for those kind of people.’
The book’s publisher, Dutton, said the author was ‘one of the first men through the door on the third floor of the terrorist leader’s hideout and was present at his death.’
It is not known whether ‘No Easy Day’ contains details of commando operations that the U.S. government considers secret, but U.S. government officials said the account had not been submitted for a required pre-publication review.
‘Even if there is nothing classified disclosed, it should have been reviewed, and it was not,’ said one official who spoke on condition of anonymity.
‘He’s going to become the poster child for recruitment and assassination,’ Carr said, noting that the case underscored the need for anyone in a high-risk profession to take great precautions with any information available on the Internet.
Carr said the man’s relatives and former Navy SEAL colleagues could also be in danger if they could be traced through the Internet.
No Easy Day is co-authored by journalist Kevin Maurer, has worked on four previous books – including two in the last year and a half about soldiers in Afghanistan.
Maurer spent the last several years embedded with troops in Iraq and Afghanistan as a military correspondent for the Fayetteville Observer.
The book’s listing on says that among Owen’s hundreds of missions around the world as a SEAL Team Six commando was the rescue of Capt Richard Phillips from Somali pirates in 2009.
