In our series on Christmas Light, today, we study darkness.
Think about two important words from Isaiah 9:1

Key Word #1: “Nevertheless”
This very famous messianic (Christmas prophecy) in Isaiah, is immediately preceded by something not as famous but just as important.
(Isaiah 9:1) "Nevertheless, there will be no more gloom for those who were in distress."

Key Word #2: “Gloom”
Isaiah 9:1a
"Nevertheless, there will be no more gloom" (Heb: muw`aph –the greatest distress; hopelessness)

King James Version: "Nevertheless, the dimness shall not be such as in her vexation" (to be cursed, to have a sense of no way out)
But what does all of this have to do with you?
Reminders from Part 1 of the series:
Biblically, light is a symbol of hope, life, and truth. The very first thing we ever hear God say concerns light.
