In the previous post, I discussed Light and Darkness. In this post, I
have a few more illustrative examples to show where I am coming from.
Previously, I mentioned that there is true Light and true Darkness as
well as false Light and false Darkness. The problem of not having this
knowledge is that we can (and commonly do) categorize ALL Light as good
and ALL Darkness as bad. I will show in the post how that error is
We learned in the previous post the true Light "gives" while the
false Light only "reflects" light. Well, we know that the
concept of true/false light exist in the Scriptures by the fact that it
was necessary to define Yeshua as being the "TRUE" Light in John
1:9. It there is a "true" Light, there must be a false light.
The error of assuming Light is always good is exemplified in the
identity of Lucifer. We can read about this in the following verse.
2Cr 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel
It is OBSURB to believe that Lucifer can transform himself into an angel
of the TRUE Light. And can easily transform himself in the angel of
false light. Those you do not know the difference will be deceived. He
was not and CANNOT ever be of the TRUE Light. Yet, I see people all the
time try to explain this away by ASSUMING that Lucifer must have at some
point been good and the "became" bad. NO. Lucifer is of the
False Light. Always has been and always will be (until he is
destroyed). That is, he is the essence of "reflecting" Light
while Yeshua is the essence of "giving" light. Hence, we have a
false Light and true Light. But, this misunderstanding has caused
people to give false teachings about Yeshua and Lucifer
Now, what about true Blackness/Darkness? Recall, Darkness/Blackness
represents reception and withholding. The word for Black in Hebrew is
"shachowr". Well, the root of shachowr is "shachar"
which means "to seek earnestly, or diligently for". To seek for
what? We search only for what we desire. The true desire if for the
that is what. This is what Mashiach brings. Unless you are
"black", you cannot receive all of the light. Hence, you must
"desire" and "seek diligently" the Light.
I have said repeated that Black/Darkness represent reception and
withholding. What are we to receive?
Job 22:22 Receive, I pray thee, the law (Torah) from his mouth, and lay
up his words in thine heart.
And we know that that the Torah is the Light (Proverbs 6:23)!
We also read in the New Testament that we are to receive the Holy Spirit
which I can prove is pure Light.
John 20:22 And when he had said this, he breathed on [them], and saith
unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:
To sum I up, the above explains the following verses.
Luke 1:79 To give light to them that sit in darkness and [in] the shadow
of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.
John 1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness
comprehended it not.
So, the confusion arises over not DIFFERENTIATING between true/false
darkness and true/false Light. I hope with the above examples, we can
not see the difference.

Darkness/Blackness. Light in general means bestowal, giving.
Darkness/Blackness in generally means reception, withholding. I need
not speak a word about the True Spiritual Light. The most misunderstood
principle is Darkness/Blackness so I will start with this topic.
> Darkness/Blackness, as I said, represents reception and withholding.
The false darkness is easy to detect in the New Testament and this is
the kind of darkness that that is spoken of. This false darkness is the
principle of egoism itself. It is receiving the sake of
self-gratification. This is akin to the physical color of black which
receives all rays of light and reflects nothing. Hence, we have
reception and withholding. Egoism is the source of our sins and
delusion. This is the spirit of self-importance and gratification.
This is why love of YHWH and your neighbor are the basis of all
commandments. THIS is why black is used to represent egoism in the New
Testament. The people understood this principle. It is purely
symbolic. Unfortunately, those us of who read the book 2000 years later
misunderstand the topic.
> What about false Light/White? Light/White in the physical world is
just as foul as false Darkness. In the physical world, "white"
rejects and scatters are rays of Light. In the physical world, nothing
is white. Thing that appear white merely scatter all rays of lights and
receive none. This is akin to rejecting the truth and love of the
Creator. A weak example is a white light bulb and a white stone. The
white light bulb GIVES light so that can represent true light. On the
other hand, a white stone only "reflects" light. It is not
truly light or white. It just rejects all forms of light. It give
nothing. So, it is represents false light. This shows how false light
and false darkness are both foul because they give nothing.
> Now, let us talk about the TRUE Darkness/Blackness. Again, Darkness
represents reception and withholding. So, how can it be "true".
Easy, we read that the YHWH, Torah and the Mashiach are all light.
Well, only one who is spiritually "black" will
"receive/withhold" the Spiritual Light of the Creator. Again,
this is symbolic. The point is that Darkness is deemed true or false
depends on the Light it is receiving for self-gratification (false) or
receiving for the sake of the Creator (true).
> The true blackness exists from the begin. It existed at the same time
as the light. The light shines into the darkness. Each has a purpose.
One is to give, the other to receive. A light that shine nowhere has no
purpose. The purpose is filling in blackness. What makes
"black" so special. Because, in the material word, EVERY OTHER
COLOR reject some portion of the electromagnetic spectrum except black.
So, as YHWH gives infinitely and is LIGHT, Darkness receive infinitely.
> Now, when we re-inspect the Scriptures, we will see all of there
principles. Giving is Light, receiving is Black. In relation to the
Creator, we are to be "black". In relation to Man, we are to be
white. It is interesting to know that neither white or black is a
color. The true colors reflect and receive electromagnetic wavelengths
in different proportions. It is "ratio" of giving and receiving
that we perceive as "color". But, as state above, white
reflects/gives infinitely and black receives/withholds infinitely. When
the New Covenant is fulfilled, we will both give infinitely (to each
others and to Yah) and receive infinitely the Love of YHWH. Therefore,
we will be both black and white.
