“But if anyone walks in the night…”

JOH 11:7-10

The Light in John’s gospel is life: God’s life, eternal life.
Darkness did not overwhelm the Light.

Later, Jesus announces that He is the Light of the world.

JOH 9:4-5

In the day, Jesus works the works of His Father.

JOH 11:9-10

There are 12 hours in the day -the time He had to complete His mission on earth.

Each person must walk while they still have the Light of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

JOH 12:35-36

In every human life on earth, there are twelve hours of day.

When that last hour ends, darkness falls on that life, and it is night.


1. The nation of Israel [the religious leaders]: their last hour ended at John 10:40.

At stake was the establishment of the Messianic kingdom.

MIC 3:5-6


2. For individual Jews in Jesus’ day: their last hour ended at the end of chapter 12.

At stake was their individual salvation (John 12:35-36, 44-46).

JOH 12:35-36
JOH 12:44-46


3. For Jesus’ mission of finishing the work that His Father had given Him to do.

The last hour ended at John 19:30. At stake was the salvation of the world.

The last hour

JOH 12:23-24
JOH 13:1


JOH 13:27-30


LUK 22:52-53
LUK 23:44-46

It is finished

JOH 19:30


4. For the disciples, their course followed the course of the Lord.

JOH 16:32


5. For the unbeliever: his 12 hours of daylight end when he takes his last breath.

At stake is his eternal salvation.

HEB 9:27
And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment

2CO 6:2


6. For every believer: our race is over when we die or are raptured.

At stake? Our spiritual growth, and rewards at the judgment seat of Christ.

EPH 5:8-10
PHI 2:14-16

7. The church age is a time period of both light and darkness.

At stake is God’s wisdom being made known to the heavenly rulers and authorities.

ROM 13:11-12
EPH 3:8-10


8. The present earth will face its last hour.

And then no longer will there be any night.

2PE 3:10-13
REV 21:23
REV 22:5
