Christians Carry The Only Light That Can Guide Souls To Heaven by Jesse Hendley

CHRISTIANS CARRY THE ONLY LIGHT THAT CAN GUIDE SOULS
TO HEAVEN

Isaiah 42:6

You know, in Isaiah, chapter 42 and verse 6, God is
speaking to His Son Who was to come into this world.
"I the Lord have called Thee in righteousness and
will hold Thine Hand and Keep Thee for a covenant of
the people for a Light of the Gentiles." There is a
prophecy about Christ, some 500 or 600 years before

Jacob and to restore the preserved of Israel. I will
also give Thee for a Light to the Gentiles, that
Thou mayest be 'My salvation unto the end of the
earth." So there we find that Jesus came not only
with a ministry to ISRAEL, to Israel's Messiah and
King, but that He had a ministry to the Gentiles,
