Days of Lies and Darkness

June 7, 2021

Proverbs 2:12-15

Wisdom will save you from the ways of wicked men, from men whose words are perverse,

13who leave the straight paths to walk in dark ways,

14who delight in doing wrong and rejoice in the perverseness of evil,

15whose paths are crooked and who are devious in their ways.

Days of Lies and Darkness

               Father is giving us a spirit of discernment in this day as we will learn to hold fast His Word and listen to the Holy Spirit.  The days that are coming upon us will be filled with darkness and deception.  It is much like when you watch a magic show.  The magician is so artful at his craft that he causes you to believe the illusion rather than the truth.  Satan is the same way concerning the circumstances and the condition of this world.   He is leading many to believe the lie for the sake of manipulating public sentiment and opinion.  Our eyes and ears are being led by the piper as we are being led to a precipice of destruction. 

               The Lord would not have us ignorant of such devices.  He would not have us to dwell among the opinions and discourse of the people that are led astray by such things.  “Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.” 34Come back to your senses as you ought, and stop sinning; for there are some who are ignorant of God—I say this to your shame. (1 Corinthians 15:33-34)” Father wants us as wise as serpents, but as harmless as doves.  We know that true wisdom comes from above; from the Father of light and truth.  If we will truly listen to His wisdom and order our lives according to His ways He will preserve us.  It is exactly as our passage from Proverbs says, “Wisdom will save you from the ways of wicked men, from men whose words are perverse, who leave the straight paths to walk in dark ways, who delight in doing wrong and rejoice in the perverseness of evil, whose paths are crooked and who are devious in their ways.”  But it is God’s wisdom and not the wisdom of man or the promises of man to bring change, peace, prosperity or to cure our woes.  Only God’s kingdom coming into the earth can do those things, but we hear these things coming from the mouths of men in high places.  Many will hear, believe and be deceived.  We are not to be among them. 

               Jesus says, My sheep will hear My voice and they will not follow another.  We must get tuned into the true voice of the Master, especially in this hour and time, for there will be many voices leading many astray. 

               Having eyes, learn to see by the Spirit.  Having ears, learn to hear the Spirit’s direction.  Having hearts, let them be tender before the Lord and sensitive to His direction and leading.  We are children of the Light and so we are called to walk in the light and be the light to the darkness that surrounds us, not believing the lie, but exemplifying the Truth.

Blessings,
