The Light Exposes Who We Really Are

"This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God." - John 3:19-21

There are some things that just don’t like the light– at the top of the list are these four things: One cockroaches. Two, rats. Three, teenagers making out in a dark room, when a parent comes in and turns on the light. And four, a thief in the night. None of those four like the light. Why? Because the light says, “You’re up to no good!” So, obviously, there’s a tendency for roaches, rats, smooching teenagers, and thieves in the night to run for cover when the light comes on. They don’t want their deeds exposed.

Really, this is true for all of us. The closer we get to the Light, the more our sins are exposed. The closer a person is to Christ, the more aware they are of their sinfulness. The further a person is from Christ, the more unaware they are of their sinfulness and they tend to think that they’re basically pretty good people. So, when the Light exposes who they really are, they prefer to flee toward the darkness.

But there is good news in all of this. John 1:9 says, “There was the true light which, coming into the world, enlightens every man.” And 1 John 1:9, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us of all unrighteousness.” In other words, in Jesus, we are made clean – we don’t have to fear exposure. He is the Light that leads us into righteous living.

Right From the Heart is one of my devotions that I read and this particular one really stood out to me. Those who are actively sinning and don't want to change their ways cannot stand in the light of God, He burns them not because He is mean but because they are unwilling to let go of their sin, and it is the sin they are clasping on to that burns them so they need to flee into the dark. 

I have had the chance on many occasions to witness to those who are walking in sin and Scripture will shut them down every time. Who can argue with God? No one. His Words are living and active and they will either convict a person of the wrong they are doing and they will repent or that person will leave for the light that is shining on them they cannot tolerate for it exposes the evil that they choose not to let go of.

Yom Kippur

Leviticus 25:9 ESV
Then you shall sound the loud trumpet on the tenth day of the seventh month. On the Day of Atonement you shall sound the trumpet throughout all your land.

Today is the day of atonement, the holiest day of the year for Jewish people.

John 14:6 ESV
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

Yom Kippur (Hebrew: יוֹם כִּפּוּר, IPA: [ˈjom kiˈpuʁ], or יום הכיפורים), also known as Day of Atonement, is the holiest day of the year for the Jewish people.[1] Its central themes are atonement and repentance. Jewish people traditionally observe this holy day with an approximate 25-hour period of fasting and intensive prayer, often spending most of the day in synagogue services.

This Wednesday October 8 2014 will come in, at 3:51 am PDT, the second blood moon, which falls on the Jewish holiday Sukkot.

Sukkot, Succot or Sukkos (Hebrew: סוכות‎ or סֻכּוֹת sukkōt or sukkos, Feast of Booths, Feast of Tabernacles) is a biblical Jewish holiday celebrated on the 15th day of the month of Tishrei (varies from late September to late October). It is one of the Three Pilgrimage Festivals (shalosh regalim) on which the Israelites would make a pilgrimage to the Temple in Jerusalem.

The blood moon falling on all of these Jewish holy days is a very rare occurrence.

Below taken from Jesus On My Mind:
The last time that four blood red moons occurred together was in 1967-1968, probably related to the recapture of Jerusalem by Israel. The time that the tetrad occurred before this was in 1949-1950, probably related to Israel becoming a nation. Before this time, the last occurrence was 1493-1494, probably related to the expulsion of the Jews from Spain.

Since 1 AD, a "Biblical tetrad" has occurred on these holy days a total of 7 times. In 2014-2015, it will be the 8th time. It won't occur again for another 500 years.

To me it seems reasonable to say that the coming of Jesus Christ is very near and we need to be alert and prepared to hear the blasting of the trumpet when He calls His children home. Are you ready?

Joel 2:31 ESV
The sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the great and awesome day of the Lord comes.
Revelation 6:12 ESV
When he opened the sixth seal, I looked, and behold, there was a great earthquake, and the sun became black as sackcloth, the full moon became like blood,
Matthew 25:13 ESV
Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the. hour. 
We do not know the hour when our Savior will call us but we can know the signs. With the turmoil of ISIS, or ISIL  beheading children and Christians over seas and recently here in North America, we can know that it will be very soon.

Be prepared. Be on the lookout.
