In this life the light of the Lord emanates through us. The Holy Spirit dwells in us and is light. Externally it derives from the sun and the moon, casting light upon the earth (Genesis 1:3-5). But glory be to God, when we are in our eternal resting place, the light of the Lord will be upon us. There is no need for the sun or moon. The light of the Holy Lamb is ablaze throughout our heavenly city, there is no need for rotation of the earth, where the sun and moon cast day and night, fore, we were never of the earth, only in it for a time. God is light (Revelations 21:9-11; 22-23).
“One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.” And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God. It shone with the glory of God, and its brilliance was like that of a very precious jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal.
I did not see a temple in the city, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp.”
Revelations 21:9-11, 22-23 NIV
