Sin Comes Under the Cover of Darkness
Proverbs 4:18-19 (KJB) But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day. 19 The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble.
Sin is associated with darkness while God is The Light of the world.
There is no way that a person can dress up evil into anything other than what it is- darkness. While it is true that the devil can make something appear as good and shining with the light of God, a sincere child of God has been given discrimination from God to help in perceiving that which is good from that which is evil.
All a person needs to do is catch the first rays of the sun as it breaks onto a new morning to comprehend the sheer brightness of the sun which does not even come close to the powerful illumination of God. In fact, we are told the light of God is far beyond what we can witness from our human eyes as Moses and Jonah had to be shielded from seeing directly God’s divine light.
A key point to focus on is the fact that as this world becomes darker and darker this brilliant light of God shines brighter and brighter in this world. There is no possible way one could live in this world and not see the hand of God upon His creation (Romans 1:19-20).
Sin is always associated with darkness while God is always Light. Do not fret and worry as this world becomes darker and darker for it allows God’s brilliant light to shine brighter and brighter to appeal to lost and empty hearts.
