“Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness.”
So many in the end times walk a dark path and call it light. Many exalt the “will” of the individual.
“I will” has been called the shortest definition of sin.
How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.”
One “I will” for each point on the star of the dark path.
“I will” was what got the master of the dark path thrown out of heaven. “I will” is what got the Great Deceiver his current job as Liar-in-Chief.
“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”
It’s sad because many of these folks are quick-witted, engaging and likeable. However, they are totally deceived. But because so many of the deceived also participate in the deception of others, they believe they have the whole story.
“But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.”
It is sad because, ultimately, they will pay the supreme price.
IF ONLY they would stop for a moment and think: they KNOW they’ve been lied to about certain things.
What other deceptions have they been fed which they have not discovered?
Again, this is very sad because they have been manipulated into a dead end; painted into a corner by sin and their very own poor choices.
Believers are to pray a merciful God will open at least a few of their eyes and allow a few to escape both the deception and their ultimate doom.
In the times in which we live, it is imperative to KNOW FOR SURE that the light which is in one’s self is light and not darkness.
There are no do-overs at one’s eternal judgment.

Does the reader believe himself to have the light? Is the reader really in darkness? Does the reader even know?
“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
—2 Corinthians 4:3
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
