GOD HAS NO 'DARK SIDE'

Our country as well as the rest of the world . . . we are all going through a dark time with the Pandemic. The predictions for winter of 2020 - 2021 are even more dire.

Have you ever stumbled around in the darkness? My husband, Jerry and I were snow-birds for several years, making the trip back and forth while staying nights in a motel. Jerry likes a dark room to sleep in and even fills in the crack below the door to block the light from the hallway of the motel. One early morning I was quietly getting out of bed to make my way to the window. I wanted to see if it was light outside yet. My hands found the bundled up curtains and felt the warm air from the heater. However I had no sense of finding the middle where the curtains separated. Frustrated I decided to go back to the bedside table for my iPhone which had a flashlight.

Sometimes this Pandemic reminds me of groping in the dark to find what we need. We choose a person to trust . . one who knows the best way to proceed and follow their directions. Meanwhile, we double down and stay away from the dark side - the dangerous side. There are some who claim God will protect them when they join the dangerous side. I believe that falls under the category of tempting God. After all people don't jump off a tall building, and claim God will protect them, do they? So there must be another reason that we are not privy to. Pretty sure God knows the truth.

I heard Ann Graham Lotz give a talk about hell. Some of the young people were not afraid.

They thought their friends would all be there and they could have fun with them. Ann shuddered while talking and explaining: You won't be able to see your friends . .

IT'S DARK!! IT'S DARK!!

There are 3 Greek words that are translated "Hell" in the King James Version.

  1. "Hades" is the temporary abode of the Lost where there does not appear to be total darkness; as the man in Luke 16 could see. (Luke 16:23-24)

  2. "Geenna", translated 'Hell' in our English is the permanent abode of the Lost. Those in Hades now will stand at the Great White Throne Judgment. Geenna is the place described as outer darkness in Matthew 8:12 and 22:13.

  3. The Greek word tartaroo is also translated Hell in our English in 2 Peter 2:4. Here the most wicked angels that fell with satan are chained in DARKNESS.




People in the tunnel of light on their way to Heaven!!


1 John 1:5-10. This is the message we have heard from Him and declare to you:


GOD IS LIGHT: IN HIM IS NO DARKNESS AT ALL.


If we claim to have fellowship with Him, yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies us from all sin.


GOD IS LIGHT: IN HIM IS NO DARKNESS AT ALL.


Is there light in your life or only darkness? God has no dark side. What about you? Are you walking in the light?


As the British say, "Mind how you go!" I like that! Know why". Because God minds how you go! Of course He does! Till next week, Lord willing . . .
