The World’s Blindness

Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in 2 Corinthians chapter 4:

1 Therefore, since we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we do not lose heart.

2 But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, 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.

Who walked in craftiness and handled The Word deceitfully?  The devil did when he tried to tempt Jesus in the wilderness.  He did the same thing in the Garden of Eden.  Deceit is intended to gain control for the purpose of self interest.  Those who walk in craftiness and deceit are blinded from The Truth and do not want the light of transparency to shine on their activities.  The current political, financial, and religious systems are promoting craftiness and deceit thus they will suffer collapse when The Kingdom’s light shines in the brightness of Christ’s coming as Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in 1 Corinthians chapter 15:

20 But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.

21 For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive.

23 But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who are Christ’s at His coming.

24 Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power.

25 For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet.

26 The last enemy that will be destroyed is death.

Those of us who have eyes to see and understand the importance of walking in the transparency of The Word will be among those Sons and Daughters destined to be included in “Christ’s at His coming”.  We long for the full manifestation of this fulfillment.

Continuing in 2 Corinthians chapter 4:

3 But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing,

4 whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.

We are not warring against flesh and blood, but against the despotisms (the exercise of absolute power, especially in a cruel and oppressive way), against the powers, against the spirits who are the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere. 

Agape Love looks beyond the individuals who are subjected to these demonic spirits.  Their blindness is temporary in nature and they will ultimately see the light whether in this age or the next.  The Light of The Word will not be denied access for It is superior and at a higher level than the darkness found in the world.

5 For we do not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord, and ourselves your bondservants for Jesus’ sake.

6 For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

Neither do I preach myself but Christ Jesus my Lord for I too am a bondservant for Jesus’ sake.  I have no interest in exalting anyone but Our Lord Jesus Christ for He alone brought forth the light into my life and exposed the darkness in my heart.  I embrace the sifting and purification process of my heart that I may be found worthy to be a light bearer on His behalf.  I have renounced all shameful acts, craftiness, manipulations, and deceit of the past for I am a new creation in Christ Jesus. 

We must not allow the adversary to bring up our past in an attempt to convince us of our unworthiness for we are covered by The Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ.  The accuser of the brethren has nothing against you or me so let us give him no place or authority in our life.
