John 3:20-21- For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.
But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen and they have been done in God.
John:18-37- Pilate therefore said to him, “Are you a king then”? Jesus answered, ” You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause was I born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. “Everyone who is of the truth hears my voice.”
“ In the scriptures, darkness is a symbol of evil. Darkness is an absence, the absence of light.
“Evil is an absence?”
“Evil is not so much a reality as the absence of a reality. It is not of the creation, but a denial of creation, a negation of what is, the negation of God. And so it can’t exist on its own, but only in opposition to existence.”
” Truth exists of itself. It is that which is. But a lie cannot exist without truth. A lie is a twisting of the truth, and so it can only exist by the truth and in the denial of it.”
So too life exists without death. But death cannot exist without life. Death only exists as the negation of life. So too the good can exist without evil. But evil cannot exist without good. Evil is the denial of good.
“IT’S the force of opposition.”
“And in Hebrew, that which opposes, that which goes against, is called the “Sahtan”
“Satan!” You can have God without Satan, but you can’t have Satan without God.
” So we can only discern darkness because of the existence of the light, and what is false by the true, and what is wrong by the right, so then evil is actually a witness, a hostile witness, that, despite itself, testifies of the truth.
The darkness of falsehood bears witness that the truth exists. The darkness of hatred Bears witness that love exists. And the Darkness of evil bears witness that God exists. Never let your heart lose its focus by dwelling on evil, on a shadow, on that which is not, to obscure that which is. Always seek beyond the shadow,and above it, to the good which is always there upon the throne, and to which even the darkness must ultimately bear witness… and bow it’s knee.
Comments: What a wonderful explanation, and a help, as to what’s going on in our world.
If we have wisdom such as is provided here, it’s easier to discern between the good and the evil,and which is manifesting in our leaders,in the media, and elsewhere.
