In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.
Jesus is the life and the light of all men. He is the Word, who is God.
He made all things. He lights all things. He is the life of all people. The connection between life and light in scripture is important to us.
When we come to the Word of God we are receiving light. David said that God’s Word was the lamp for his feet. In other words, it guided his life and direction.
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
If we want understanding and direction we need to be constantly in the Word of God. We need illumination and wisdom in all things.
The entrance of Your words gives light; It gives understanding to the simple.
God’s Word is living and powerful. It sees everything about us. Knows everything about us. When allow the Word to work in our lives it is not just information or knowledge, it has the dynamic of light an life to change us and equip us for life.

Our story is interesting and varied, but we have constantly been in the forefront of publishing the gospel on posters, and always been well cheered on by a loyal band of supporters.
Bible Text Publicity Mission is dedicated to presenting the gospel on posters in public places.
We have been a mission since 1922, when we first literally put the gospel in the sky with aerial sky messages. Since then we have developed a ministry which places the good news before the travelling public, especially on train station platforms in regular campaigns.
Our main aim is to encourage, comfort and edify travellers with a message of hope and verses from the Bible which they can take with them on their journey.
