Why is it that so many of the world’s population are still chained in darkness? As we yearn for the last people group to hear the gospel and believe in Jesus so the end will come and Jesus will return for His Bride, the death grip of spiritual darkness appalls us. Paul wrestled with this issue.
“In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God” (2 Corinthians 4:4).
This goes back to the original lie that Eve received and Adam believed. Their minds were blinded by accepting a lie which in turn kept them in darkness and “from seeing the light.” I have often spoken with persons who attempt to figure out how the gospel works with their minds. This results in a wall of unbelief. They refuse to accept God’s truth by faith, and therefore they are prevented from seeing the light of the gospel. Let’s get to God’s solution.
Like Paul, we proclaim that “God…said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ” (4:6). It is God who speaks into the heart of mankind and shines His light and reveals His glory in Jesus Christ. We must be in earnest, both in prayer and in proclamation, that this light be broadcast where it is not yet shining. Will you join us by holding out this light for others to see?
The god of this world has blinded the mind. God gives faith to believe what we do not understand.
