Come out of darkness to live in the Light.

 

Some Christians love the Light, who is Jesus Christ and his ways of godliness, righteousness, and holiness. But Others, who are sinners, hate the Light and they will not come to the Light. They love darkness. Some of those who are siting in the darkness, when they see the light, will come to the light.

Come out of darkness to live in the Light.

1. Three group of people; Good, Evil, and one in the middle.

Jesus Christ is light. His light shines on his ways of godliness, righteousness and holiness. Satan and his ways of deception are darkness. People are of primarily two kinds, and there is one more in between these two. "John 3:18-21 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already. 19 this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God." First group believe what Jesus Christ says, they love the light, they will do the truth, that is, they will do what Jesus Christ tells them to do. There life will be open for people to see, and they are godly people. Second group hate the light and love darkness. They will not come to the light because God will reprove them for their sins and will condemn them. The third group is sitting in darkness looking at the light, and they may come to the light. "Matthew 4:16 The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up." The lost sheep is sitting in darkness where the shadow of death was looming. These people may not totally evil. They may be lost for various reasons. If we do evangelical work, we must go to them to bring them to the Light. One group will obey God and walk in his ways of righteousness and holiness. They are blessed and they will inherit the kingdom of God. Another group is evil, and they will not obey God, even if they are in the middle of the church, and even if they are preachers. But innocent and honest people may be saved.

2. Evil is in churches; with form of godliness; and plunder you.

The second group hate the Light and love darkness. But these people are not Criminals. They are also in our churches and they will fit society real well. They have beautiful smile on their faces and will always be politically correct. They will put up a vey good show as godly people. But they will not be honest, there will have no conscience and truth. They will be against the doctrine of Jesus Christ, and at the same time sing praises to God. They will not obey the truth, and they will have no righteousness. "2 Timothy 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away." They do everything with selfish motive. They do not love the brethren, but they exploit them with a smile. Their evil nature is hidden with a friendly gesture. They do not come to the light since God reproves them. They do not believe what Jesus says but they call themselves believers. They live in deception. Having a form of godliness, they deny the power of God and the gifts of the Holy Ghost, which are given to edify the church, the body of Christ. They twist the scriptures and teach false doctrines. They profess that they know God; but they deny the works of the holy spirit in our personal life. "2 Peter 2:2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not." They will not preach to obey God, but rather ask you to give them money for their projects, and make merchandise of you. God reproves their hidden sins and God condemns them. So, they hate the Light and his truth. God will sent them to eternal damnation.

3. Are you in the Light; Or in transcition from darkness to Light?

Now we saw three kinds of people. 1st kind, they love the light. 2nd kind, they love the darkness. 3rd they are in transition from darkness to light. Let me ask you about which kind do you belong to?

If your are 1st kind: you are the most blessed. You are the sons of God, may be even the bride of Christ. 1 John 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. Revelation 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. 8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

If your are 2nd kind: You serve Satan with counterfeit Christianity. You believe deceptive doctrines, etc. Ephesians 5:5-8 say this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. 6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. The main problem is that the servants of Satan deceived you with vain words. The children of disobedience, who are sinning people, will be punished by the wrath of God. Believe this. It is true. 7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them. That is do not be friends with false teachers. 8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: That is, even you have hope if you change your ways. Come to the light and walk in the light.

For the rest. If you are not 1st or 2nd you are 3rd. You are Sitting in darkness looking for the light. Did you not see the light yet? You have seen it. Why are you still sitting? What you are waiting for? Get up and come to the light. Hebrews 3:7 Wherefore as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice, 8 Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.. Take this as the call of God. Come to the light to live in it. Colossians 1:12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: 13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: If you will come to the light, you will have an inheritance in the kingdom of God. So, come. At the final judgment, this third group will not be there, some of them will be with the first group, but most of them will be with the second group. I hope that you will be in the first group, that is, you will be in the Light, with the Lord Jesus Christ. Then, you will inherit the kingdom of God, and be blessed.
