which One Do You, Obey?

You Worship What You Love And Obey:
Apostle James R Winfree Sr, Revealing The Gospel Truth In God's Love, That Is Transforming Lives!!
( Most People Love Darkness More Than The Light Of Jesus Christ )

Yes, "Most people loved darkness even Religious people also." That is what Jesus said to Nicodemus. "Men loved darkness." There are some things in life that love darkness just because it is darkness. Mushrooms and fungi and mold, for instance, love darkness. The Planet Earth TV series shows us species of life that have adapted to live in the darkest and deepest depths of the world's oceans and caves“ they also love darkness.

I did a google search on this today and found this...You might know that in some corporations there is even a management style known as "mushroom management." The Dilbert cartoon in the newspaper often pokes fun of this style. In this style of management, a company's staff are treated like mushrooms: kept in the dark and eventually canned. These kinds of managers love darkness for its own sake.

Yes, "Men loved darkness ... because their deeds were evil and are evil." Most often people love darkness for what it hides. Think of Nicodemus going from house to house under the cover of darkness. Especially, though, it is evil that people want to hide under the cover of darkness. Think of the incest of Lot's daughters in the darkness of the cave (Gen 19). Think of Jesus being arrested and tried under the cover of darkness (Matt 26). Think of Adam and Eve in the Garden “ the first thing they did after falling into sin was seeking concealment. "Men loved darkness ... because their deeds were evil." Because they want to continue undisturbed in their evil. Because they don't want that evil to face the light of day. I have really over 5000 plus, so-called friends along with many family members you never step up and support the true light of the gospel of Jesus Christ and yet they're on my friend-list.

"Men loved darkness ... because their deeds were evil." What kind of deeds are we talking about? I already mentioned Sin, the arrest, and trial of Jesus, Adam & Eve hiding from God in the Garden. But in more than one place Scripture specifically mentions what we know as the deeds of darkness is to Not obey God:
Yes, sexual immorality, impurity, greed, obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, orgies, drunkenness, debauchery, dissension, jealousy, Preaching and Teaching The Church of The Lord Jesus Christ to keep and obey the Old Laws and Covenants.
( Rom 13:12,13; ) ( Eph 5:3,4,11)
Sinners wedded to their lusts love these evil deeds. They want to continue in these deeds. They don't want the light of righteousness or justice or morality to shine on these deeds.

For the Jews, the evil deeds they loved included the dark shadows of their law and the instructions of their blind guides. The Gentiles loved their superstitious service to idol gods. We did not know the God of Israel as Gentiles.

Yes, "Men loved darkness ... because of their deeds are evil." These words were not written just for really bad people “ like murderers, thieves, rapists, and so on. Any person who fails to be Born-Again by Christ stays in the darkness where evil thoughts, evil words, and evil actions remain unexposed. We as Born Again Gentiles are saved by Faith and Grace of Jesus Christ, Nothing else added.

Yes, "Men loved darkness ... because their deeds are evil." Fallen humanity is in love with his sins, in love with his slavery, in love with the darkness filling his life.

Yes, "Men loved darkness ... because their deeds were evil." You know, of course, that believers commit the same kinds of sins as the man and woman of the world. Think of King David “ he was guilty of adultery and murder. Think of Ananias and Sapphira “ they wanted to look more generous than they really were. At his sentencing, the Men in Leadership today said, "I have a deep, profound, profuse apology when they are found out or the light shine on their evil deeds ..."

So, what is the difference between Christ believers and unbelievers then? Unbelievers love darkness. Jesus Believers hate darkness. Unbelievers pursue the deeds of Satan darkness. Believers fight and resist the deeds of darkness even though they may fall. Unbelievers are not ashamed of the evil that they do and even trumpet it to the world. Christ Believers are filled with remorse and guilt and shame when they do the same deeds without being filled with the power of the Holy Ghost.

Sinners Love Sinning!!!
A Jesus declares that fallen man has a choice between darkness and light. He says, "men loved darkness instead of light." Do you hear that word "instead"? In other words, a decision has been made to love darkness instead of light. But it goes further than this. Jesus also says a decision has been made to "hate the light" (John 3:20).

The fallen man loves darkness. The Sinful man hates light.

The person who loves darkness rather than light is deceived. Think of an alcoholic who turns down a rehab program that is guaranteed to work because he or she does not want to give up alcohol. He is deceived into remaining in their present lifestyle, enslaved to alcohol, instead of receiving freedom from it. Drug addicts and pornography addicts are similarly deceived. This kind of deception can happen to almost anyone. It can happen to a successful businessman who refuses to commit his life to Christ for fear that he may have to give up time and money and work. It can happen to those who get sucked into sports or work on Sunday instead of God and His worship. Satan is crafty. He is an expert at tricking people out of the spiritual riches and awesome joy that is ours in Christ. As Apostle Paul puts it,
( 2Cor 4:4 The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, religious people,so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is The very image of God. We cannot obey Jesus and the old Religius ways or Covenant. Period.

Do not be deceived, my brothers and sisters. There is nothing on this earth that is better than knowing Jesus Christ and His glory. And, there is nothing worse than being deceived and blinded to the glory of Christ Jesus Light. Amen Church.
