Light exposes darkness.
The more you walk in the light and be the light the crazier those in darkness will become because exposure is happening around you.
“And the light shines in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.” John 1:5.
“These wrongdoers are of those who rebel against the light; they know not its ways nor stay in its paths.” Job 24:13 AMPC.
“Thus says The LORD, In an acceptable and favorable time I have heard and answered you, and in a day of salvation I have helped you; and I will preserve you and give you for a covenant to the people, to raise up and establish the land from its present state of ruin and to apportion and cause them to inherit the desolate moral wastes of heathenism, their heritages, Saying to those who are bound, Come forth, and to those who are in spiritual darkness, Show yourselves, come into the light of the Sun of righteousness. They shall feed in all the ways in which they go, and their pastures shall be not in deserts, but on all the bare grass-covered hills.” Isaiah 49:8-9.
“The basis of the judgment (indictment, the test by which men are judged, the ground for the sentence) lies in this: the Light has come into the world, and people have loved the darkness rather than and more than the Light, for their works (deeds) were evil. For every wrongdoer hates (loathes, detests) the Light, and will not come out into the Light but shrinks from it, lest his works (his deeds, his activities, his conduct) be exposed and reproved. But he who practices truth who does what is right comes out into the Light; so that his works may be plainly shown to be what they are — wrought with God divinely prompted, done with God’s help, in dependence upon Him.” John 3:19-21 AMPC.
It is time to bring ourselves into the light and let him bring the correction so that we will not be condemned with the world.
“But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning The LORD’s body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep . For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. But when we are judged, we are chastened of The LORD, that we should not be condemned with the world.” 1 Corinthians 11:28-31.
“Besides this you know what a critical hour this is, how it is high time now for you to wake up out of your sleep (rouse to reality). For salvation (final deliverance) is nearer to us now than when we first believed (adhered to, trusted in, and relied on Christ, the Messiah). The night is far gone and the day is almost here. Let us then drop (fling away) the works and deeds of darkness and put on the full armor of light. Let us live and conduct ourselves honorably and becomingly as in the open light of day, not in reveling (carousing) and drunkenness, not in immorality and debauchery (sensuality and licentiousness), not in quarreling and jealousy. But clothe yourself with The LORD Jesus Christ (the Messiah), and make no provision for indulging the flesh put a stop to thinking about the evil cravings of your physical nature to [gratify its desires (lusts).” Romans 13:11-14 AMPC.
It Is Not Time to Align With Darkness
“Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers [do not make mismated alliances with them or come under a different yoke with them, inconsistent with your faith]. For what partnership have right living and right standing with God with iniquity and lawlessness? Or how can light have fellowship with darkness? What harmony can there be between Christ and Belial the devil? Or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever? What agreement can there be between a temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God; even as God said, I will dwell in and with and among them and will walk in and with and among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. So, come out from among [unbelievers], and separate (sever) yourselves from them, says The LORD, and touch not [any] unclean thing; then I will receive you kindly and treat you with favor, and I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says The LORD Almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6:14-18 AMPC.
