Wisdom 1:16 It was the wicked who with hands and words invited death, considered it a friend, and pined for it, and made a covenant with it, because they deserve to be in its possession.
“My child, the wages of sin is death. And death begets death—it cannot beget life. So you see the downward spiral begun at the Fall of man but magnified exponentially in this age. The evil one, the prince of death, knows how short his time is on earth. Do you feel the frenzy with which he and his minions are going about their destructive business in this age?”
Lord the weight of darkness and the looming chaos are hard to miss.
“Yet my child, so few are aware. Many walk in the darkness oblivious to the danger. Pray for light my child, pray for true illumination and the illumination that comes from truth. There can be no end to the destruction and darkness until truth is enthroned in men’s hearts.”
O my Jesus, Lord of Truth, Light, and Life, I implore your mercy to let the brilliant light of truth shine for all to see. Let it illumine the darkest places so that those imprisoned by sin and death may walk in the light of life and truth. Fulfill your word O Lord: “The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light.”* Come Lord Jesus—maranatha! Come!
