Only One Source Needed
by Franklin Graham
Hell is not only the absence of light, but it is complete, utter, total darkness. The Scriptures call it “outer darkness,” a place that is reserved exclusively for the devil, fallen angels and unrepentant man.
But the Light that is from above, the Light of the World, will be the single source of light in the new Heaven and the new earth. “And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light” (Revelation 22:5).
And we know that however great and wide the spread of darkness over the world may be, it can never extinguish the True Light. “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it” (John 1:5).
