Walking in the blackness-Spurgeon

Posted by appolus on July 26, 2017

What will happen to those people living in the Church who only have a reputation of being alive but are dead? What will happen to the mere professors of Christianity who are not possessors of Christianity? What will become of those who are only outward religious?… They will walk in black, the blackness of God’s hell. They will walk in black, the blackness of hopeless despair. They will walk in black, the blackness of incomparable anguish. They will walk in black, the blackness of damnation.

They will walk in black forever because they are found unworthy. Oh you who profess to be a Christian, examine yourself. Oh ministers examine yourselves! Oh you who make a profession of Christianity today, look within your hearts and search your souls. You live in the sight of a holy God, Oh stop and search your own hearts. It is not a small matter of which I plead, but a matter of double importance. I beg you examine and cross examine your own souls and see if you are in the path of righteousness for it would be terrible for you to find in the end that you were in the Church but not of It!…

Oh I think I can hear them saying in hell, “Here is a preacher, here is a deacon, here is a church member, here is a man who has had the wine of the Lord’s Supper on his lips, here is a man that has the baptism water on his clothes.” Aah, take care my friends, there are only a few people in Sardis who will walk dressed in white. Make sure you are a part of that few! (Spurgeon)

What will happen indeed. This blackness will exponentially increase as the days of this world come to a close. With every passing day that draws us closer to the return of Jesus, the gross darkness falls and only the true light of Christ will shine in those days. For those who dwell in shades of grey will simply be swallowed up by the greater darkness. Grey can disappear into darkness but light and darkness cannot coexist. And so when the gross darkness comes then light must stand apart and everything outside of the light of Christ will be consumed. It must be so. 1Pe 2:9  But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.

    Brother Frank…….Things have been in turmoil here for the last few days, and I havn,t had a chance to comment on your excellent articles. But I must take the time and comment on this one. You stated “it would be terrible for you to find in the end, that you were in the church, but not of it” . This my brother is the one thing that is destroying the churches, and they don,t even realize that they are dead.It is the virgins without oil in their lamps. People sitting on the pews going through all the motions of worship from rote memory, and not realizing that Jesus Christ is not even in their midst any longer. This is a world that has gone insane brother Frank, and there are two things that has brought that about. Number one, the world in general has turned it,s back on God and his commandments, and number two, a lifeless church without oil in their lamps that has sat passively by and let that darkness settle upon the world. Blessings from Mexico brother…….Robert

    Your most recent posts have been speaking directly to me … I have been examining myself. My strongest desire is to be part of the first resurrection … to live each day as if the Lord were to return that very day … learning how I need to in obedience repent and submit as Jesus’s Holy Spirit shows me my sin. My desire is to come to the end of me and grow more and more into Him. I can only do this with His help. The battle seems to be raging all around and in me … Satan’s attacks are really intense right now. I keep hearing the lyrics to ‘fix your eyes upon Jesus’ … so that is what I am struggling to do.

      God bless you Rebecca as you go through this season of trials and spiritual warfare. No doubt it is because of your strong desire to live each day as you would if you knew Jesus was coming back that very day, that you are experiencing the level of attack that you are. Stand strong sister, putting on that full armor of God that we have been taught to do in the Scripture. Focusing on your salvation, the gospel, walking in the truth and righteousness, shield of faith and of course the sword of His word and His Spirit. Keeping our eyes on Jesus, the author and the finisher of our faith………………..bro Frank

    Luke 11:34 The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.

    35 Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness.
