The world is utterly deceived and in darkness because of lies. Jesus Christ is the light of the world. He is the way and the truth and the life and He gives the Spirit of Truth, the Holy Spirit, in those who believe in Him and who obey Him. Those who have received the Holy Spirit and who follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit, they are not in darkness. They know the truth and the truth makes them free.
Very few people are led by the Holy Spirit. Very few believers even have the Holy Spirit and that is why they are in darkness. They are being deceived. If you do not have the Holy Spirit and if you do not follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit every day, then you are being deceived. Have you submitted your life to Jesus Christ? Do you follow and obey Him? Have you repented of sin and of following after the lies that are being told in this world? Have you been baptized in water as Jesus commanded? Have you received the Holy Spirit that He promised to those who obey Him and do you follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit?
If you do not have the Holy Spirit and do not follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you are in darkness and you are being deceived. Those who are being led by the Spirit of God they are the children of God; they are not in darkness, they walk in the light because they follow Jesus Christ. Are you walking in the light? Are you following Jesus Christ?
May Jesus bless you.
