When darkness rules

Posted by appolus on April 10, 2020

The darkest moment in history can be found in Matt 27:45-46. We are told that from the sixth hour to the ninth hour there was darkness over all the land. Jesus was not unaffected by this. In fact towards the very end of this supernatural darkness, when hell seemed to rule over the earth and all seemed lost as our precious Lord and Saviour is dying on the Cross, from the very depths of His soul, and oh the depths there was He cries “My God , My God, why has thou forsaken me.” Ponder that just for a moment…………Hell seems to be victorious. All seems lost. Every saint I believe will go through something of that in their lives at some point. And every saint that is called to be the generation that is alive at the coming of Jesus will experience the gross darkness of hell and seeming defeat.

In Exodus 10:21 we are told that the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even darkness which may be felt. Imagine that brothers and sisters, a darkness that can be felt. A darkness that touches you to the depths of your very soul, so much so that it can be “felt.” Imagine living through that. Yet in the very depths of such a darkness we read in verse 23 that they saw not one another, neither rose any from his place for three days: but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings. So dark that they could not see one another, for three days, symbolic of the three hours of gross darkness on the cross, yet, praise the Lord God in heaven the children of Israel had “light in their dwellings.”

Jesus is the light in our darkness. We are His dwelling place and His light in us is the light to the world in the midst of gross darkness. We hold this light, we hold this treasure in broken vessels. He was broken for us on the cross so that we may have light in the darkness. Before that scene is over He cries out in Luke 23:46 Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost. Now brothers and sisters we are told that He cried this out with a loud voice. With a loud voice and a cry from the same depths of His soul he commits everything to His Father.

Have you ever cried out to God from the depths of your soul? I believe every genuine saint has and will. When we are surrounded by gross darkness, even a darkness that can be felt then the light that shines from the depths of our dwelling, this tent in which we dwell, shall be seen by a lost and dying world which is literally drowning in darkness. We hold out hope to them for we ourselves have been plucked from the ravages of such gross darkness. The key to our lives and the delivery from such darkness is to shout out loud to our Father in heaven that we commit our hearts and our minds and our souls and our very spirit to Him. And from the midst of that commitment, light penetrates and overcomes the darkness.
