God is Light. No darkness whatsoever. "Not a light, not the light, ..., but simply and absolutely God is light, in His very nature." (Vincent). This is not a metaphor. It represents the glory, truth, and holiness of God. God is light, love, and life. This is His nature or essence, He does not just give them, He is them.


Cf. - Isaiah 43:10-13; John 1:4; 9:5; 12:35-46; 8:12
