Darkness hates children of Light
Mark 14:69 -
And a maid saw him again, and began to say to them that stood by, This is one of them.
Firstly I like to apologize I was given this message about 2 days back and I got busy with some social activity and did not send it. I am happy the Lord gave this message for I would have taken another day or 2 to get back on track.
In this message we read about Simon who was called Peter during the time he was about to deny Jesus thrice. First we need to understand even before we commit a sin, we first contemplate it in our hearts. It will surprise you the numerous times the Lord has pulled me up or warned me even before I committed a sin.
At this stage Peter had not denied Jesus but the seed of denial was already in him and it was the fight with this seed that caused him to follow Jesus.
People think when they are in the Lord it is okay at times to slide back, and continue to live the life they lived before they came into the Lord, today’s message is for these people.
When the Lord was explaining the spirit world to me He explained to me the different levels and how things are between them. I will share the level between our cosmic world (worldly world) and the real Kingdom of God (top 3 levels). In between these levels was a level of transit which we all go through before we really come to know the Lord.
What was interesting was between the transit world and the cosmic world there were earthly beast on top of structures ready to attack and kill those coming down.
Brothers and sisters in Christ if you were citizen of this world and if you went into darkness (sin) you would not be a harmed much, but if you by any change came to knowledge of Christ and became a citizen of the Kingdom of God even for a little time there is no way that darkness will allow you to remain in their kingdom. They will not trust you for you can be a great danger for them anytime. They will soon or later complete destroy you.
Read the number of testimonies that are available everywhere of people who were in the Lord, backslided and became disasters unimaginable.
The Lord loves you and therefore many a times warns us at the seed level, even before we go to the extent of committing sin. So let us keep our spiritual eyes open, remain vigilant and avoid being caught on the wrong foot. Let us always remember we are hated by the kingdom of darkness and therefore have no place there.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord, once we come into your light we become your children and darkness hates us. Even a small pinch of light in us can really harm the Kingdom of darkness therefore they look forward to consume us and make us an example for others. Lord, help us remember there is no turning back from You and You are our only refuge. Even if we fall we need to immediately get up and rush back to You. Out of your love You warn us even before we fall. Help us Lord to be alert to these warnings...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.
[ Reference Scriptures ]
8 For you were sometimes darkness, but now are you light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
10 Proving what is acceptable to the Lord.
11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.
13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatever does make manifest is light.
14 Why he said, Awake you that sleep, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you light.
15 See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
2 Corinthians 12:1-4
1 It is not expedient for me doubtless to glory. I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord.
2 I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven.
3 And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;)
4 How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.
|The Word of God was given free to us, therefore we should also share it freely with others.
