Text John 1:6-11
There came a man sent from God, whose name was John.
This man came to witness, that he might testify of the Light, that all men might believe in it [adhere to it, trust it, and rely upon it] through him.
He was not the Light himself, but came that he might bear witness regarding the Light.
There it was–the true Light [was then] coming into the world [the genuine, perfect, steadfast Light] that illumines every person.
He came into the world, and though the world was made through Him, the world did not recognize Him [did not know Him].
He came to that which belonged to Him [to His own–His domain, creation, things, world], and they who were His own did not receive Him and did not welcome Him.
There came a man with a commission and message from God; this man’s name was John. John came for the purpose of giving testimony to what he had heard and seen concerning the Light. John’s witness was given in order that all might come to believe on the Light through him. John himself was not the Light, but came for the express purpose of pointing out the genuine Light. The perfect Light, which reveals God to every man who will receive the revelation, was coming into the World. The Light was in the world prior to His incarnation, and the world which was made through Him testified to Him, but the world not recognize Him. He came incarnate unto His own nation, and they that were His own peculiar people rejected Him.
In summary John was not the Light, but was sent purposely to point out the Light. Even when the Light was manifested in the flesh, those who should have received Him rejected Him.
