The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? Psalm 27:1.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:

“The LORD is my Light and my Salvation, whom shall I fear?” What does that mean? It is one thing to read it, it is another level to understand and enjoy its benefits. And it becomes a whole new level when you take it as your own and live in it every moment of the day and night.

If you understand that “The LORD is my Light and my Salvation,” then you will have no fear of anyone or anything. So let us begin.

First you will note this Scripture is speaking of Me under My covenant Name of LORD (יהוה), which, in the Hebrew language in which I delivered it, means I AM, I WAS, and I AM TO COME. In other words, I AM. I always existed and always will and all life and all existence proceeds from within Me and is upheld and sustained by Me. And whether it be past, present or future all is accessible to Me. Nothing is that was not made by Me, by My Word. Nothing lives whose life is not from Me. There is no other life. No one else can create life or give life. And I do everything by My Word.

When you know Me by this Name it shows that you believe that I AM. “And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6. And I reward those who seek Me. And how does that reward come? In Light and Salvation.

I have called you out of darkness into My marvelous light. 1 Peter 2:9. I enlighten you with the Light of life so that you never walk in darkness. Job 33:30 (“To bring back his soul from the pit, that he may be enlightened with the light of life.”); John 1:4; John 8:12. I have rescued you from the realm of darkness and transferred you to the kingdom of My beloved Son, in whom you have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. Colossians 1:13-14. And He is the Light of the world, for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light for the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth. Ephesians 5:8-9. “This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth; but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.” 1 John 1:5-7.

I am your Light and your Salvation, whom shall you fear? So I have given you the light of life but what about Salvation? Salvation means to be saved. Saved from what? Well, read on, “whom shall  I fear?” Saved from fear. Fear of what? Death. “Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and might free those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives.” Hebrews 2:14-15.

I told Joseph to name the child born to Mary “Jesus,” in Hebrew rendered Yeshuah, which means salvation, because He would save His people from their sins. In Him you have redemption by His blood, the forgiveness of your sins. He paid the ransom for all; He gave His eternal life in the flesh to save you. An eternal life given for the eternal life Adam destroyed. You who have received the gift of Jesus, the gift of redemption, no longer go to the dust of death, the sentence of condemnation on Adam and his seed. Why? Jesus, your Salvation, took it for you: “My strength is dried up like a potsherd, and My tongue cleaves to My jaws; and You lay Me to the dust of death. For dogs have surrounded Me; a band of evildoers has encompassed Me; they pierced My hands and My feet. I can count all My bones. They look, they stare at Me; they divide my garments among them, and for My clothing they cast lots.” Psalm 22:16-17. And further: “But we do see Him who was made for a little while lower than the angels, namely, Jesus, because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone.” Hebrews 2:9.

Saved from death. I gave you salvation, and He said, “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die.” John 11:25-26.

Saved from darkness. Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.” John 8:12. “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; for you once were not a people, but now you are the people of God; you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.” 1 Peter 2:9-10.

Saved from sickness and infirmities. “I AM the LORD your healer.” Exodus 15:26. “You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.” Acts 10:38. “When evening came, they brought to Jesus many who were demon-possessed; and He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were ill. This was to fulfill what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet: “He Himself took our infirmities and carried away our diseases.” Matthew 8:16-17. “Many followed Him, and He healed them all.” Matthew 12:15.

Saved from poverty and lack. “Abraham called the name of that place the LORD will provide.” Genesis 22:14. “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.” John 10:10-11. “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.” Psalm 23:1.  “For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, so that you through His poverty might become rich.” 2 Corinthians 8:9. “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”— in order that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we would receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.” Galatians 3:13-14. “O fear the LORD, you His saints; for to those who fear Him there is no want. The young lions do lack and suffer hunger; but they who seek the LORD shall not be in want of any good thing.” Psalm 34:9-10. “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” Matthew 6:33.

Saved from harm. “No evil will befall you, nor will any plague come near your tent.” Psalm 91:10. “Do not fear, Abram, I am a shield to you; your very great reward.” Genesis 15:1. “Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will by any means harm you.” Luke 10:19. “No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; and every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn.” Isaiah 54:17. “The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies.” Psalm 18:2-3.

Saved from sin. “For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law but under grace.” Romans 6:14. “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.” Romans 8:2. “For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures.” 1 Corinthians 15:3. “To Him who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood— and He has made us to be a kingdom, priests to His God and Father—to Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.” Revelation 1:5-6. “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9. “Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget none of His benefits. He pardons all your iniquities, He heals all your diseases; He redeems your life from the pit, He crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion; He satisfies your years with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle.” Psalm 103:2-5

Saved from unrighteousness, shame, blame, reproach. “And this is His name by which He will be called, ‘The LORD our righteousness.’” Jeremiah 23:6. “He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” 2 Corinthians 5:21. “And although you were formerly alienated and hostile in mind, engaged in evil deeds, yet He has now reconciled you in His fleshly body through death, in order to present you before Him holy and blameless and beyond reproach.” Colossians 1:21-22.

Saved from condemnation. “Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.” Romans 8:1-2.

Saved from judgment. “He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” John 3:18. “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.” John 5:24.

Saved from hell. “Then let him be gracious to him, and say, ‘Deliver him from going down to the pit, I have found a ransom.’” Job 33:24. “And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.” Revelation 20:15. “For Your lovingkindness toward me is great, And You have delivered my soul from the depths of hell.” Psalm 86:13.

I love you. I am your Light and your Salvation. Forever. Whom shall you fear? No one and nothing, I have you covered—past, present and future. “But you will not go out in haste, nor will you go as fugitives; for the LORD will go before you, and the God of Israel will be your rear guard.” Isaiah 52:12.
