1 John 1:5 - Now this is the message that we have heard of Him and declare
unto you: that God is Light and in Him is no darkness at all.

Part 2: Light vs Darkness

We cannot say that we are in Him, and we are in communion with Him, and
walk in darkness. As light represents God, His life, and His righteousness;
darkness represents Satan, his death, and his iniquity. The symbolisms of
light and darkness are laid out from the beginning. Earth was in a lifeless
and chaotic state because of sin and rebellion, and darkness was over the
face of this desolate and waste place (Genesis 1:2). When God commanded the
light to shine into the darkness, the darkness was removed, and the life
and creation of God began to spring forth. Darkness is the place of sin and
death, a place separated from fellowship with God. When Jesus came, the
light shone into the darkness, and the darkness vanished. There is absolute
division between light and darkness, and they can never mingle. Darkness is
the absence of light, and in this respect, it is the absence of the life of
God. All who will come to the light and receive the life of God may now
walk in 'koinonia' (κοινωνία), where there is no darkness at all.

Keep yourselves from idols. Amen. (1 John 5:21)
