FOR THE LOVE OF DARKNESS

JOHN 3:19

AND THIS IS THE CONDEMNATION THAT LIGHT IS COME INTO THE WORLD, AND MEN LOVED DARKNESS RATHER THAN LIGHT, BECAUSE THEIR DEEDS WERE EVIL.

AND THIS IS CONDEMNATION

THERE WAS MANY PEOPLE WHO HAD KNOWLEDGE OF CHRIST, HIS DOCTRINE AND MIRICLES, BUT THEY HAD PREDJUDICES AND AN UNBELIEVING ATTITUDE TOWARD CHRIST, MOREOVER, THEY WERE BLATENTLY IRREVERENT TO HIS PRESENCE, AND THIS IS CONDEMNATION, THE SIN THAT RUINED THE JEWS.

THAT LIGHT IS COME INTO THE WORLD AND MEN LOVED DARKNESS RATHER THAN LIGHT.

LIGHT IS DEFINED AS - A PROMINANT OR DISTINGUISHED PERSON - THE ILLUMINATION DERIVED FROM SUCH A SOURCE

CONDEMNATION IS DEFINED AS - PUNISHMENT

LIGHT

1) THE GOSPEL IS LIGHT ( SO SAYS THE TRIUNE)

2) JESUS IS LIGHT (SO SAYS GOD)

3) GOD IS LIGHT (SO SAYS DAVID)

4) CHRISTIANS ARE THE LIGHT (SO SAYS JESUS)

AND ALL BEING HELD SEL-EVIDENT - THE GOSPEL BEING THE LIGHT - JESUS BEING THE LIGHT - GOD BEING THE LIGHT CGRISTIANS BEING LIGHT - AND ALL SHINING IN A DARK PLACE, AND A DARK PLACE INDEED THE WORLD WOULD BE WITHOUT THE LIGHT.

WHAT WOULD THE WORLD BE WITHOUT:

1) THE GOSPEL - WHICH IS JESUS CHRIST JOHN 1:14

2) JESUS - WHO IS THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD JOHN 8:12

3) GOD - WHO IS THE SUPREME ABOVE ALL 1 TIMOTHY 6:15

4) CHRISTIANS - WHO ARE THE LIGHT OF THIS WORLD MATT 5:14

FOR THE LOVE OF DARKNESS

WHAT WOULD YOU DO FOR THE LOVE OF DARKNESS:

WHEN MY SOUL WAS ON LAY - AWAY TO THE DEVIL I WOULD:

1) DRINK - FOR THE LOVE OF DARKNESS

2) ENDANGER HUMANITY - FOR THE LOVE OF DARKNESS

3) COMMITT ADULTERY - FOR THE LOVE OF DARKNESS

4) COMMITT FORNICATION - FOR THE LOVE OF DARKNESS

THE TRUE QUESTION IS AS YOU SEEK AFTER CHRIST WHAT IS THAT YOU DO FOR THE LOVE OF DARKNESS?

THE JEWS THEY LOVED DARK SHADOWS OF THEIR LAWS, THEY LOVED THE INSTITUTIONS OF THEIR BLINDED GUIDES RATHER THAN THE DOCTRINE OF CHRIST.

THE GENTILS LOVED THEIR SUPERSTITIOUS SERVICES OF AN UNKNOWN GOD. RATHER THAN THE TRUTH OF CHRIST.

AMONG YOU ARE JEWS AND GENTILES WHO LOVE THE DARKNESS MORE THAN THEY LOVE THE LIGHT. THEY LOVE THE DARKNESS BECAUSE THEY THINK IT IS AN EXCUSE FOR THEIR EVIL DEEDS AND THEY HATE LIGHT BECAUSE IT ROBS THEM OF THE GOOD OPINION OF THEMSELVES AND IT SHOWS THEM THEIR PRESENT SIN AND THEIR FUTURE MISERY.JOHN 8:32 SAYS: AND YE SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH AND THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE.

FREE FROM:

1) FUTURE CALAMITY (JEW OF YESTERDAY GENTILE OF TODAY)

2) THE WRETCHED MAN (JEW OF YESTERDAY GENTILE OF TODAY)

BOTH ARE IN LOVE WITH THEIR OWN PERVERSE IDEAS,AND ARE IN LOVE WITH HIS OR HER OWN SLAVERY AND WILL NOT BE MADE FREE - WILL NOT BE MADE WHOLE.

FOR THE LOVE OF DARKNESS

WILL YOU ALLOW THE LOVE OF DARKNESS TO SEPERATE YOU FROM THE LOVE OF GOD.

REPENTENCE

ROMANS 10 9 - 10

THAT IF THOU SHALT CONFESS WITH THY MOUTH THE LORD JESUS, AND SHALT BELIEVE IN THINE HEART THAT GOD HATH RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD,THOU SHALT BE SAVED.

FOR WITH THE HEART MAN BELIEVETH UNTO RIGHTEOUSNESS; AND WITH THE MOUTH CONFESSION IS MADE UNTO SALVATION.
