The mindless killings and kidnappings around the globe especially in our clime at this time have increased to an unprecedented sad level. The questions that are being asked in a lot of hearts and fora are: why is this happening, where is the face and love of God, how could He allow this to happen and many more of such. This had affected the walk of so many with God and made many more resolve not to follow God; equally, some have resolved to draw closer to God in the light of these strange and worrisome events. The truth is, the world is filled with darkness that is affecting the thoughts, actions and life in general of the people. The world believes that the best solution to this darkness is to create more darkness by taking God out of the lives of people. As long as the Creator is taken away from His creation, darkness will reign. In Genesis 1:3, the Bible says darkness was on the earth and the face of the deep until God spoke light into it. And we know that where there is darkness nothing thrives. In the gospel of John 1:4, we were told that God is Life and the Life is the light of men. It then follows that if God is taken out of the equation of creation, darkness reigns! The creation was not designed to exist without its Creator. Taking the Creator out is a recipe for a great disaster as we are witnessing globally. The world has consistently, especially in developed economies, tried to take God away from their lives, is there any wonder then the rise in mindless murders and kidnappings and macabre behaviour by the inhabitants of the world? It is not about legislating stricter and more stringent laws but it is about each individual doing a rethink and returning back to God his Creator. The light of this world is not in man’s intelligence or prowess but in God Himself. If this is not done, then the world and the people will remain bewildered and confused about the growing darkness. The Bible tells us in Revelations 1:1-3 “The revelation of Jesus Christ that God gave Him to show His slaves what must quickly take place. He sent it and signified it through His angel to His slave John, who testified to God’s word and to the testimony about Jesus Christ in all he saw. Blessed is the one who reads and blessed are those who hear the words of this prophecy and keep what is written in it, because the time is near.” God Himself gave the revelation of His Son to His Son to show to His followers and disciples. Everything we need for a life in the light devoid of darkness can only be found in the revelation of Jesus Christ. The world has tried and still tries to circumvent this and as a result, it is plummeting fast into an abyss of darkness and moral decadence. The 3rd verse declares any man that reads and hears the word of this prophecy is blessed. If truly you cannot seem to understand or make sense of the happenings around you, it is not to blame God or look for ways outside of Him to remedy the situation. You may get temporary relief, but on the long run such situations will degenerate and become worse than the first instance. Friend, there is no other way and the answers cannot be found in legislative chambers, bank vaults or the halls of human reasoning and logic, but the answers can only be found in God Himself. The revelation is in Him and it carries His instruction for you on what to do and how to walk. It is time to truly seek His face as to what to do in order to roll back this darkness. God bless you.
