Have you ever been in a darkness that you could feel? Have you been in a darkness that makes the hair stand up on the back of your neck? Have you been in a darkness that gave you chills and goose bumps? How awful that would be.
Exodus 10:21: And 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.
When people choose darkness over light they have no idea how bad the darkness is. They make a very foolish choice.
People reject Christ because Satan blinds them.
2 Corinthians 4:4: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
When we come to Jesus we come to light. If you have come to Jesus these passages are true of you:
1 Peter 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:
1 Thessalonians 5:5: Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
