“Do you suppose that I came to grant peace on earth? I tell you, no, but rather division;” Luke 12:51
Love has an Adversary, an enemy, or opposition. As different as Light is to darkness, Our Creator is Love, 1 John 4:16, Light, everything Life giving and Good, so why would anyone choose darkness and death?
“We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love one another. He who does not love abides in death.” 1 John 3:14
Death and Life are two very distinct sides, one is referred to as perishable, the world, and the other is imperishable, The Kingdom of God, or YHVH. 1 Corinthians 15:50.
So Why all the Confusion?
When I find myself praying frustrated prayers, asking God to make the Truth more evident to the deceived. I’m wishing there wasn’t so much grey area, making so many people vulnerable to man-made teachings and religions…
But then I remember the words of Y’shua, The very Word of YHVH, The Words of Life, John 1:1; John 1:4. He said, Light did come into the world, just as prophesied, but people still loved the darkness. John 3:19
“When a man who is honestly mistaken hears the truth, he will either quit being mistaken, or cease to be honest.” Unknown
We are either of the world or not of the world, any grey area or confusion is caused by deception. Darkness represents death, separation from YHVH and Light is equivalent to Life, and knowing Him. Hebrews 8:11
All those who seek Truth will find it, Jeremiah 29:13
“I will put My Torah within them and on their heart I will write it; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. “They will not teach again, each man his neighbor and each man his brother, saying, ‘Know YHVH,’ for they will all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them,” declares the YHVH, “for I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”…Jeremiah 31:33; Hebrews 10:16; 1 Thessalonians 4:9; Romans 11:27; 2 Corinthians 3:3.
When we live in the grey area of the world everything is confusing. Division becomes more clear as we turn from the comfort of our traditions, religions, our own opinions, and follow the Way of Y’shua. Those who walk in the Light of Life, His Love, will clearly see a division between those who hate, (turn from) and those who are obedient to His law of love. Leviticus 19:18
“I have given them Your Word, (the Sword); and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.” John 17:14
