KEY SCRIPTURE: John 3:19 KJV “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil”.
The Bible prophesied that in the last days perilous times would come, Why, because men would be lovers of themselves rather than lovers of God. (2nd Timothy 3:1&2.). Our key scripture goes further to say that, this is the condemnation against men, although light has come into the world, yet men loved darkness more than light. Love is a strong emotional condition that drags a person to please ‘what he loves. You become * a slave to what you love for love overwhelms its victims. What would make a man choose darkness over light? It is the power of sin ruling over men.
I could image a cocaine sniffer who realizes the destructive effects of sniffing cocaine yet cannot stop it. It drains down his whole body. It sucks every pesewa from him yet he loves this very life destroyer. Darkness is the power of evil. It destroys its victims yet they love it. Just imagine physical darkness. The kind of darkness that men have fallen in love with, is not physical but a supernatural entity, (personality) filled with total hatred for man. This shows man is lost and needs a Savior. The love for darkness has produced enemies among ourselves. The greatest enemy of man is not diseases or natural calamities but man, because we love darkness and are ruled by it. Listen to what God says about the human heart. Jeremiah 17:9 KJV ” The heart (of man) is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Just listen to the news headlines and the degree of human atrocities against fellow humans will send cold chills through your veins. Why all these? Because men love darkness more than light. Men are not at peace with themselves. Jesus is the light. Repent and choose Him.
Jesus still transforms the miserable and defeated lives of many who turn to him. There are certain individuals who seem to be making a great life for themselves, yet deep in their hearts, and at their lonely moments, they really know there is a great void in their lives. If there is such a void in your heart, then turn to Jesus. Dear brother or sister, I wish to say to you that this Jesus we are talking about is not a myth. He has transformed millions of people from all shades of life. He loves you dearly. He is closer than your very breath. He is only a prayer or better still a sincere heartfelt request away. Just whisper a prayer saying Lord Jesus I need you to deliver me from darkness. He would instantly respond to that heart cry and save your soul. He would deliver you from the love of darkness which is gradually drawing you into eternal darkness and torment. You can make the following prayer.
Dear heavenly father, I know I am a sinner. I am sorry for my sins. I surrender my life to the Lord Jesus today. Save my soul and be the Lord over my life. I believe you were raised to life after the third day of your crucifixion.
