Those Who Stumble

John 11:9 Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world.

Any man can see in the daylight, so that he will not stumble. But, what of spiritual things? We are in Christ Jesus to walk in his light, to see what is happening in the world through the light of the Bible and the Holy Spirit. We see what is happening in the natural with spiritual eyes; all the evil, the death, the destruction, the removal of good laws that were made to protect and guide men in freedom. I see that the world is gettng to be as the Bible warned us it would be in the last days.

2Ti 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

2Ti 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

2Ti 3:3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

2Ti 3:4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

2Ti 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

John 11:10 But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him.

The night, is the absence of light, the blind of the world who walk by their own light and not the light of God stumble in the night.

John 9:40 And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also?
John 9:41 Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.

There is no blindness like spiritual blindness. Most of the world is blind to the things of God. Jesus is the way, he is the light of the world. I see more and more how he is being removed from public life. One school district wanted to stop the Gideon's from passing out Bibles to school children. They thought this to be some evil? Evil blind leaders are stumbling in the dark and they have no love of truth.

Isa 3:11 Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him.

Isa 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Isa 30:1 Woe to the rebellious children, saith the LORD, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin:

1Pe 2:6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.
1Pe 2:7 Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,
1Pe 2:8 And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.

Walk in the light of God by walking in his spirit of truth. We are not of those who seek to remove Jesus from public life. We are to be the light of the world while we are in this evil world.

LORD God, give us your vision and help us to walk in your light. In Jesus name, amen.
