Isaiah 60: 2 (From Benson commentary)
For, behold, darkness shall cover the earth — Ignorance, idolatry, and all kinds of errors and vices; and gross darkness the people — Like that of Egypt; the most palpable blindness and infatuation as to divine things; but the Lord — Christ, the bright and morning-star, the day- spring from on high,
This is where we are in human history now, it is just a matter of time till the man of sin is unveiled. Yet as promised in Isaiah, Satan shall be overcome by the sword of his mouth, and the brightness of his coming. This is the New Jerusalem, the city upon the hill where we shall rule and reign with Christ for a thousand years.
Black and White: when I was in the Army as an equal opportunity advisor to the commander, the school celebrated a book written by a professor which disputed the very idea that the color Black was associated with evil, and in contrast, that the color White was associated with good! Is this where civilization has come to nowadays?
To my understanding, now (SJW) educators are challenging our children on this very basal issue of being brain washed by the establishment, in believing that the absence of light (darkness – blackness) is depicted as bad, and that (white) light, which overcomes the darkness is now somehow evil.
This concept at the very root level, is actually a rebellion against the long understood principles of humanity, and although perhaps not realized, the Lord God Himself, and any truths which he alone is the creator of! Of course this is all politically based biased thinking, in an effort to overthrow any statutes of the past, and is an attempt to throw away any beliefs of a righteous God.
This is the perfect illustration of what Isaiah 60 verse 2 is speaking about, currently underway to the latest generation! Darkness and Gross darkness covers the people… We have thrown away the Lord, who is the light of the world, for Strong delusions, which the Lord God has seen fit to hand those over for their own destruction, who have rejected him and any of his ordinances!
This is all prophesied to happen towards the “end of the age”, and I submit to you that we are on the threshold of the destruction of Babylon, the destruction of the loosely cobbled together feet of iron and clay, which I view as global multiculturalism, to use modern day terminology.
2 Thessalonians 2 The Great Falling Away. 2 Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of [a]Christ had come. 3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of [b]sin is revealed, the son of perdition…
I will not attempt to convince anyone of what I can plainly see taking place today, especially in using the scriptures, as this is the same mistake most churches make in trying to teach people into light – truth/Christ, it just cannot be done. As even understanding is a gift of God alone to a naturally darkened mind (Spiritually speaking).
And this is the basis of all light to the world, and without Him we can see nothing, I’m waiting to see the son of perdition be unveiled next!
