Darkness is covering the earth

….in reference to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit, For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.
“This is where we are just now. Darkness is covering the earth, and yet grosser darkness is going to cover the peoples of the earth. Let’s be realistic. The Bible reveals it clearly and we can see many evidences of a kind of darkness that we have never even contemplated before beginning to engulf the inhabitants of the earth. But in the midst of the darkness the message of God to His people is that the glory of the Lord is risen upon us. Here is the contrast. The light is getting brighter; the darkness is getting darker. We have come absolutely, conclusively to the parting of the ways. Neutrality from now on is ruled out. Whoever is not with Me is against Me, and whoever does not gather with Me scatters. Every one of us is going to have to make a decision and make a commitment. Do we love the light? We will come to the light. If we refuse to come to the light Jesus said it is because our deeds are evil. This is the choice that confronts each one of us. Am I going to walk in the light? This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. Am I going to be identified with the light and the purposes of light in the earth? Or am I going to hide away in the darkness as it grows darker and deeper across the face of the earth?
Nothing deceives God’s people so much as to believe their salvation is a static condition that you arrive at by going forward at the altar of a church, saying a little prayer and shaking the pastor by the hand. That is a caricature of salvation. Salvation is not a static condition; it is a way of life.” Secrets of a Prayer Warrior, DerekPrince
“The path of the just is like the shining sun, that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day. The righteous will hold to his way, and he who has clean hands will be stronger and stronger.”
“For thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘Once more I will shake heaven and earth, the sea and dry land; and I will shake all nations.”
