As if pointing to those, who believed on The Father through Him, The Word said, "Here is the patience of the saints: here [are] they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus" (Revelation 14:12).

And among those, who built their faith on The Rock of Christ, John in alignment with Christ, testified of The Light of GOD shining from his heart to ours, said, "That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; (For the life was manifested, and we have seen [it], and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)

"That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship [is] with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full. This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

"If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us" (1 John 1:1-10).

And with The Knowledge of knowing that we have been restored to The Father through The Son, John testified of The Truth of The Father and said, "My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for [the sins of] the whole world. And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.

"He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked. Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning.

"Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth. He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now. He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him. But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes" (1 John 2:1-11).

Notice The Joy that John wanted us to receive from The Word that was being revealed through him, Which is The Truth that The Father is also an ADVOCATE with HIS Son, to save all, who will keep HIS Covenant of Love, which is the same commandment that HE has given to men from the beginning. If we keep HIS Word in our hearts, HIS Word will perfect HIS Law of Love in us to glorify HIS Name.

If the point of all that we do and say is to reflect The Light of GOD'S Glory to others that they might see the need to align themselves with The Light of GOD'S Word, to be in One fellowship with Him, them through receiving and sharing what the servants of The Word have heard, and have seen with their eyes, and have handled with their hands, then we also are to be in harmony with them, to present to others That, Which The Father has revealed to us by HIS Word through them.

For we are to be witnesses for GOD in this world of darkness, to be as messengers of HIS Light, as the disciples were for Him to us, that all might come into fellowship with GOD through the receiving of The Truth and to witness to others What He has revealed to all men. If we alter HIS Witness through His disciples, to turn off The Light in men, then we are bound also to walk and lead others into darkness and death from The Gift of Light and Life; Whom The Father has given from The Heart to all men. May we do the work with HIM in turning on The Light of GOD in the hearts of men by HIS Word, Who also abides in and with us.
