As they led us through the cavern, they brought us to a place deep within where they instructed us to no longer move around, but remain very still. They intended to turn off the lighting. Once the light were off, we were instructed to place our hand in front of our faces and try to see our own hand. It was amazing, although my hand was only a few centimeters away from my eyes, it was Blinding Darkness. The room was completely void of light.
They allowed the darkness to settle in the room, to the place you could almost feel the black covering. Our guides were not creating a scarey atmosphere, like perhaps some experience on halloween events. It was simply the first time most of my classmates and I had ever experienced a space void of any light!
In the beginning of the Gospel of John, he introduces us to Jesus in his opening word as the light.
4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
For many, spiritual darkness has been all they've know their entire lives. It is beautiful to see someone exposed to the light for the first time. At first they shrink away from the blinding shine as it is uncomforable for their eyes. However, once the initial shock wanes, the light changes everything.
I pray that the Light of Jesus would shine into your life, into your home and into your circumstances. For when His Light shine, the result is LIFE!
