Darkness – from the New Testament – The Holy Bible (KJV)

I am no preacher, but, am a prime sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, when I read “The Holy Bible” KJV,  the following verses were given in the context of “Darkness”  from The Holy Bible.

Mat 4:16 The people which sat in darkness saw great light;
and to them which sat in the region
and shadow of death light is sprung up.

Mat 6:23 But if thine eye be evil,
thy whole body shall be full of darkness.
If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness,
how great  is that darkness!

and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob,
in the kingdom of heaven.

which is in thee be not darkness.

Walk while ye have the light,
lest darkness come upon you:

and the moon into blood,
before that great and notable day of the Lord come:

Act 13:11 And now, behold, the hand of the Lord  is upon thee,
and thou shalt be blind,
not seeing the sun for a season.
And immediately there fell on him a mist and a darkness;
and he went about seeking some to lead him by the hand.

Act 26:18 To open their eyes,
and to turn  them from darkness to light,
and  from the power of Satan unto God,

and darkness,
and tempest,

a royal priesthood,
an holy nation,
a peculiar people;
that ye should shew forth the praises of him
who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

2Pe 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned,
but cast  them down to hell,
and delivered  them into chains of darkness,
to be reserved unto judgment;

2:5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth  person,
a preacher of righteousness,
bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
2:6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha
into ashes condemned  them with an overthrow,
making  them an ensample
unto those that after should live ungodly;
2:7 And delivered just Lot,
vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:
2:8 (For that righteous man dwelling among them,
in seeing and hearing,
vexed  his righteous soul from day to day
with  their unlawful deeds;)
2:9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations,
and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:
2:10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh
in the lust of uncleanness,
and despise government.
Presumptuous  are they,
selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.

2Pe 2:17 These are wells without water,
clouds that are carried with a tempest;
to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.

1Jo 1:5 This then is the message which we have heard of him,
and declare unto you,
that God is light,
and in him is no darkness at all.

1Jo 1:6 If we say that we have fellowship with him,
and walk in darkness,
we lie,
and do not the truth:

1:7 But if we walk in the light,
as he is in the light,
we have fellowship one with another,
and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

which thing is true in him and in you:
because the darkness is past,
and the true light now shineth.

and hateth his brother,
is in darkness even until now.

and walketh in darkness,
and knoweth not whither he goeth,
because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.

but left their own habitation,
he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness
unto the judgment of the great day.

Jud 1:13 Raging waves of the sea,
foaming out their own shame;
wandering stars,
to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.

Rev 16:10 And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast;
and his kingdom was full of darkness;
and they gnawed their tongues for pain,

Rev 16:11 And blasphemed the God of heaven
because of their pains and their sores,
and repented not of their deeds.

A message of warning against tale-bearing!
C.H.Spurgeon/The showdown before the Revival
Dec 13, 2004

“Thou shalt not go up and down as a talebearer among thy people … Thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him.”-(Leviticus 19:16, 17)

Tale-bearing emits a threefold poison; for it injures the teller, the hearer, and the person concerning whom the tale is told. Whether the report be true or false, we are by this precept of God’s Word forbidden to spread it.

The reputations of the Lord’s people should be very precious in our sight, and we should count it shame to help the devil to dishonour the Church and the name of the Lord. Some tongues need a bridle rather than a spur. Many glory in pulling down their brethren, as if thereby they raised themselves.

Noah’s wise sons cast a mantle over their father, and he who exposed him earned a fearful curse. We may ourselves one of these dark days need forbearance and silence from our brethren, let us render it cheerfully to those who require it now. Be this our family rule, and our personal bond-SPEAK EVIL OF NO MAN.

The Holy Spirit, however, permits us to censure sin, and prescribes the way in which we are to do it. It must be done by rebuking our brother to his face, not by railing behind his back. This course is manly, brotherly, Christlike, and under God’s blessing will be useful. Does the flesh shrink from it?

Then we must lay the greater stress upon our conscience, and keep ourselves to the work, lest by suffering sin upon our friend we become ourselves partakers of it. Hundreds have been saved from gross sins by the timely, wise, affectionate warnings of faithful ministers and brethren. Our Lord Jesus has set us a gracious example of how to deal with erring friends in His warning given to Peter, the prayer with which He preceded it, and the gentle way in which He bore with Peter’s boastful denial that he needed such a caution.
