For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. Ephesians 5:8-10
Notice the key words here in the scripture “you were sometimes darkness, but now you are light in the Lord” You were but now in Christ you are not, that’s the key here. If you have become Born Again in Christ (John 3:3) you are a new creation. You were once in darkness but now you are a child of the light, you no longer stay dead in your sins, you are now alive in Christ by the Holy Spirit
Paul also mentions the fruit of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5) , you as a Born Again Christian should be producing the fruits of the Holy Spirit, there should be evidence of your conversion. You are no longer a child of darkness and sin, you are a child of God through The Lord Jesus Christ
And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which 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. Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. Ephesians 5:11-14
Have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, hello Church , are you listening? How many Churches compromise and embrace the darkness of this world, so they can be socially acceptable? This is going against the Word of God, have no fellowship with the darkness. You can’t walk with Jesus and hold hands with the devil, you are a child of the light or a child of the darkness, there is no in between
Here’s another message for the Church “Wake up sleeper and rise from the dead! The Church has spiritually fallen asleep today, we need a revival, we need a reformation, wake up O sleeper, and arise from the dead!
Christ shall give you the light! What is the solution to world? Jesus Christ, what is the solution for The Church? Jesus Christ, What is the solution for yourself? Jesus Christ, the light of the world! Christ is the head of the Church, if you love him keep his commandments! Amen!
