THE CHILDREN OF DARKNESS
For we were sometimes Darkness, but now ye are Light in the Lord: walk as children of Light...
Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
AND HAVING NO FELLOWSHIP WITH THE UNFRUITFUL WORKS OF DARKNESS, but rather reprove them.
For it is a shame even to speak of those things that are done of them in secret.
But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the Light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is Light...(Ephesians 5:8-13).
And this is the condemnation, that Light is come into the world, and men loved Darkness rather than Light, because their deeds were evil.
For every one that doeth evil hateth the Light, neither cometh to the Light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
But he that doeth truth cometh to the Light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God...(John 3:19-21).
For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost (the Overshadowing Mystery of God),
And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,
If they shall FALL AWAY, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to open shame.
For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God:
But that which beareth thorns and briars, (the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches) is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing: whose end is to be burned...(Hebrews 6:4-8).
And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the Day time. Spots are they and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you...
Which have forsaken the right way, and gone astray, following the way of Balaam...who loved the wages of unrighteousness...
SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES...Ephesians 6:12.
For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were escaped from them who live in error.
While promising them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought into bondage.
For is after theyhave escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ (Hesus-Vishnu/Krishna), they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them...(2 Peter 2:13-21).
Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God...(James 4:1-4).
But of the times and seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
For yourselves know perfectly that the Day of the Lord so cometh as a Thief in the night.
For when THEY shall say Peace and Safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a Woman With Child, (see Revelation 12:1,2; Isaiah 66:6-13); and they shall not escape.
But ye, brethren, are not in Darkness, that that day should overtake you as a Thief, (see John 10:1-10).
Ye are all the children of Light, and the children of the Day: we are not of the Night, nor of Darkness.
Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
For they that sleep sleep in the Night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the Night, (see Isaiah 5:11-30).
But let us, who are of the Day, be sober, putting on the Breastplate of Faith and Love; and for a Helmet, the Hope of Salvation...(1 Thessalonians 5:1-9).
But we have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.
But if our Gospel is hid, it is hid from them that are lost:
In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the Light of the glorious Gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
FOR WE PREACH NOT OURSELVES, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus sake...(2 Corinthians 2-5).
FOR THE MYSTERY OF INIQUITY doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way, (see Numbers 22:20-41).
And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his Mouth, and shall destroy with the Brightness of His Coming:
Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
For this cause God shall send upon them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness...(2 Thessalonians 2:7-12).
He that saith I know him (Christ), and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him...
Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the Darkness is past, and the True Light now shineth.
He that saith he is in the Light, and hateth his brother (as Cain hateth Abel), is in Darkness even unto now.
He that loveth his brother abideth in the Light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.
But he that hateth his brother is in Darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because the Darkness hath blinded his eyes...
Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now there are many antichrists; whereby be know it is the last time.
They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be manifest that they were not all of us...(1 John 2:4-11, 18-19).
In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.
Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. Ane wherefore he slew him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous...
Hereby perceive we the love of God, because He laid down his life for us: we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren...(1 John 3:10-16).
They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them...(1 John 3:5).
