Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against fleshb and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
(iii) The light exposes that which is evil. The best way to rid the world of any evil is to drag it into the light. So long as the thing is being done in secret, it goes on; but when it is taken into the light of day, it dies a natural death. The surest way to cleanse the depths of our own hearts and the practices of any society in which we happen to be involved is to expose them to the light of Christ.
A few weeks ago I told you that God would never work in this world without our co-operation. We looked at Genesis where God said to Adam and Eve. Let them have dominion over this world and everything in it. With these words God laid down the rule that without man God will not. When God said let them have dominion Satan was strongly bound by these words. Without man satan cannot. Without man’s agreement Satan could not have entered into this world .Only through the agreement of Eve and the silence of Adam’s agreement did Satan enter into our world. Satan has no hands but our hands to kill, to steal, to destroy. Only our mouth with which to lie, to back bite, to curse God, to destroy a persons reputation. Remember Paul prays that we might be saved from these wicked and evil men. Be saved from the evil one who works through such wicked and evil people. Satan is not a fool, he knows that if he shows himself openly no one would follow him and so the first principle of Satan ,the first principal of evil is that is that evil always tries to hide itself .Satan never shows himself openly .the first thing he does is to try and reverse things so that at the end of the day we will call the good evil and call evil good. he reverses things ,he does this often by changing words ,by hiding behind words. So that the killing of a child in the womb, abortion becomes a woman’s right to choose .you see what he has done he has changed the name and made it seem that evil is good and good is evil. The same for homosexuality, the sin of sodomy. It is clearly laid out many times that in the bible that this sin is detestable in the sight of God. In the book of Levticus it goes into the detail it leaves out nothing .It says what is detestable to God. It forbids Men having sexual intercourse with men.Women having sexual relations with women. It states that parents are to have no sexual relations with their children. It even tells us that we are not to have sexual relations with animals.It is explict in what is right and what is wrong. See how Satan has reversed things. People who are homosexual are no longer called by that name.They are called Gay people. They have taken this word that originially meant ,happy,joyful,and placed it onto what is sinful. Any sexual perversion is now called a persons right to choose ,a persons sexual preferance. The killing of old people who are sick ,not in their right mind .It is not called by its right name any longer Murder. They call it being merciful ie mercy killing or Euthanasia. On and on it goes good is bad ,bad is good. Paul prays with good reason save us from these evil men from the evil one .
