Diwali And Lord Jesus:
The first occasion when I encountered Diwali ‘very close’ was the point at which I was working in India. I had come to remain for a month and toward the start of my stay Diwali was praised surrounding me. What I recollect most were every one of the sparklers – the air was thick with smoke and it made my eyes sting somewhat. So with all that fervor going on around me I needed to find out about Diwali, what it was and what it implied. What’s more, I became hopelessly enamored with it.
The ‘celebration of lights’ motivated me since I am a devotee to, and adherent of, YeshuSatsang otherwise called the Lord Jesus. What’s more, the principle message of his instructing was that His Light would beat the dimness inside us. So Diwali is a great deal like the Lord Jesus.
A large portion of us understand that we have an issue with dimness in us. This is the reason so a huge number partake in the KumbhMela celebration – in light of the fact that a great many us realize that we have sins and that we have to wash them off and scrub ourselves. Too, the old petition of the outstanding PrarthaSnana (or Pratasana) mantram recognizes this wrongdoing or dimness inside us.
I am a heathen. I am the consequence of transgression. I am conceived in wrongdoing. My spirit is under transgression. I am the most noticeably awful of miscreants. O Lord who has the lovely eyes, Save me, O Lord of the Sacrifice.
Be that as it may, these musings of murkiness, or sin, inside us isn’t empowering. Truth be told we some of the time consider it ‘awful news’. This is the reason the idea of light defeating the haziness gives us so much expectation and festivity. Thus, alongside the candles, the desserts and the fireworks, Diwali communicates this expectation that light will defeat the dimness.
Master Jesus – Light in the World
This is actually what the Lord Jesus has done. The Gospel in the Veda Pusthakan (or Bible) depicts Jesus in the accompanying way:
First and foremost was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God at the outset. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all humanity. The light sparkles in the obscurity, and the dimness has not defeated it. (John 1: 1-5)
So you see, this ‘Word’ is the satisfaction of the expectation that Diwali communicates. What’s more, this expectation comes in this ‘Word’ from God, which John later recognizes as the Lord Jesus. The Gospel proceeds by expressing that
The genuine light that offers light to everybody was appearing on the scene. He was on the planet, and however the world was made through him, the world didn’t remember him. He went to that which was his own, however his very own didn’t get him. However to all who received him, to the individuals who put stock in his name, he gave the privilege to become offspring of God—kids conceived not of common plunge, nor of human choice or a spouse’s will, yet conceived of God. (John 1:9-13)
This is clarifying how the Lord Jesus came to ‘offer light to everybody’. Some feel this is just for Christians, yet see that it says that this offer is for ‘everybody’ ‘on the planet’ to ‘become offspring of God’. This offer is one that everybody, in any event everybody who is keen on, as Diwali, Light conquering the haziness inside them.
Master Jesus’ Life forecasted many years ahead of time
What is remarkable about the Lord Jesus is that his manifestation was anticipated and predicted from numerous points of view and examples from early mankind’s history and they are recorded in the Hebrew Vedas. So he was expounded on even before he was on this planet. What’s more, a portion of the expectations of his manifestation are likewise recollected in the most antiquated psalms in the Rg Veda, which adulates the happening to Purusa, and records probably the soonest occasions of humankind, for example, the surge of Manu, a similar individual whom the Bible – Veda Pusthakan – calls ‘Noah’. These old records delineate the haziness of the transgressions of individuals, while offering the expectation of the coming Purusa, or the Lord Jesus.
