Continuing from last time:
Two of the most dangerous places to be are: Ignorance and thinking you know everything.
Ignorance is dangerous because you simply don’t know what you need to know at the time you need it.
And it’s the same with thinking you know everything there is to know about the subject at hand. Why is that? Because if you think you already know all there is to know, you cut yourself off from further revelation and insight into God’s Word and that, dear brothers and sisters, is a very dangerous place to be. No one person has ever exhausted all there is to know about any scripture in the Bible. So we have a lot to learn.
We need to stay humble and teachable in the things of God and be open to His leading at all times. That means listening to the Holy Spirit when He’s prompting us and endeavoring to get us to see light.
James 4:6 (KJV) 6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.
When we walk in God’s word, in the light of His Word we can see clearly which way to go. But when we step out of His Light, His Word, we step into darkness because that’s what is out there. The further away from the light, His Word, and His way of doing things that we go– the further and further into darkness we go. Let me give you an example:
Many of us have wondered how things in this country [the USA] have gotten so bad and perverted. The short answer is that the enemy – satan – has always sought to control God’s people and has worked diligently to get his agenda to work. But the further people get away from the light, the further into darkness they go – hence the current perversion that’s running rampant his nation.
People are out of control and into deception where they are calling good evil and evil good. [Isaiah 5:20] This is an abomination to the Lord and the further away from the Lord they go, the further into darkness and deception they go. That’s why they can do such heinous things and their consciences don’t convict them.
