Who Are the Sons of Light?

Paul illuminates us to the glory of the sun and the moon being different glories (1 Corinthians 15:41)

Jesus calls his disciples sons of light and Paul repeats it to the assembly:

Like as the light you have, believe into the light, so that sons of light you may become.” Jesus spoke these ones, and having gone away was concealed from themselves.

John 12:36 literal

for the whole of yourselves sons of light are, and sons of day. We are not of night nor of darkness.

1 Thessalonians 5:5 literal

An opening of thy words is causing to become light, the-one-causing-to-discern the foolish.

Psalm 119:130 literal

When God made the luminaries he set them in the Heavens “for signs” (Genesis 1:16). They later were used by God in Joseph’s dream to signify something about a father, mother, and brothers (Genesis 37:9). So consider that the sun itself—the light to rule the Day—is a shadow or type of the Son of Light. Believe in the Light that you may become sons of Light.

They will give light to the new Eden.

And elohim is making אֶת-two Great Light-Givers,[1] the Great Light-Giver for the dominion of the Day, and אֶת-the Young Light-Giver[2] for the dominion[3] of the Night—and the Stars;

[1] Both luminaries are great. Note the mark of the accusative before “two” as though the Great Luminaries are doubled. The moon is not a luminary, that is, one that gives light as a star does. Thus Isaiah 13:10 reads, “the stars will not give light/praise (#1984)…the moon will not cause to shine/enlighten (#5050) his light.” The Hebrew maor (Strong’s #3974) means luminary and not sun, “Yourself has caused to erect a luminary and a sun.” (Psalm 74:16), “the luminary of Your faces” (Psalm 90:8), “a luminary of the eyes” (Prov. 15:30). The luminary of the eye, or little-man of the eye (Ps. 17:8, Prov. 7:9, Deut. 32:10) is the reflection within the pupil of the eye—look very closely in a mirror.

[2] Hebrew הַקָּטֹן֙, ha-qaton. Strong’s #6996. Small, young, insignificant, unimportant. Not necessarily denoting size but moreso age. This noun is mostly used of younger or youngest sons and daughters, i.e. “We have a little [qaton] sister…” Song of Solomon 8:8. “but ye are not so, but he who is greater among you — let him be as the younger; and he who is leading, as he who is ministering” Luke 22:26 YLT

[3] Strong’s #4475, memshalah. Noun. Dominion, realm, governance, rule. Elohim’s dominion [memshalah] is spoken of in Psalm 145:13, 103:22, 114:2. Also used in the prophets: Isa. 22:21, Mic. 4:8, Jer. 34:1, 51:28, etc.

For a sun and a shield is Yahweh elohim, favor and honor Yahweh is giving. He is not withholding good to the ones walking in completeness.  Psalm 84:11 literal

to the maker of the great lights,
for to the age is his kindness,
אֶתthe Sun to rule in the Day,
for to the age is his kindness,
אֶתthe Moon and stars to rule in the Night,
for to the age is his kindness

Psalm 136:7-9 literal

And she has broken forth to yourselves fearful of my name, sun of justice. And health in her wings. And you have gone out, and have spread-out like stall-fed calves.

Malachi 4:2 literal

It is “her wings” and not “its wings” and definitely not “his wings”. “Spreading-out like stall-fed calves” is actually a Hebrew expression of animals fattened up for a slaughter. Something to consider. English translations are a conspiracy in a thousand ways, literally. They are devoid of life, and useless for anything but a doorstop.
