~ John 3:20-21 ~
“For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”
There are many living in condemnation, in darkness and afraid of the light. But when light shines into that darkness, the darkness gives way to freedom. When Jesus hanged on the cross, from the sixth to the ninth hour, there was darkness over all the land. He took on darkness and conquered it. He overcame its power and secured a release from it. He carried the shame of darkness, the penalty and the condemnation of the deeds of darkness and brought light into the darkness. As the foundations of the earth shook and quaked in the hours He hanged on the cross, the centurion and the guards finally caught the revelation, “this truly, is the son of God”. But why not, the prophets had long announced Him, John the Baptist had revealed Him, His works of power and deliverance had testified about Him and yet the religious leaders of the day shouted, crucify Him! They wanted to remain in the darkness, they loved the deeds of darkness and still carrying its condemnation. The King they had been waiting for came and yet they still cried out “we have no King, but Ceasar”. I pray that it will not take a tsunami, it will not take an earth quake or a volcanic eruption to bring the light of God’s revelation into your darkness. I pray it does not take a shaking of the very foundation you stand on to reveal you have been released from the power of darkness. But let the holy light of freedom find you in that dark place and as you look into its light, guide you safely out of the darkness. Light has come, the power of darkness is broken, God has His eyes on you, and the clock is ticking.
