Dunamis’ Seeds of Destiny 29 December 2020 Devotional By Pastor Paul Enenche: Walking In Bitterness – Walking In Darkness
Topic: Walking In Bitterness – Walking In Darkness
No one who lives in darkness can enter heaven. Anyone who hates his brother is walking in darkness and no dark soul can cross the gate of heaven.
SCRIPTURE: He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now. He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him. But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes. 1 John 2:9-11.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Everyone who lives in bitterness is in darkness.
The way of bitterness is the way of darkness. The meaning is, when a person is walking in bitterness, he is walking in darkness. Our anchor Scripture confirms that walking in hatred, bitterness, or unforgiveness is walking in darkness.
God is light. The question is: is it possible for light and darkness to unite? God is light and heaven is light (Revelation 21:23). So, no one who lives in darkness can enter heaven. Anyone who hates his brother is walking in darkness and no dark soul can cross the gate of heaven.
When you walk in bitterness and you appear at the gate of heaven, the angel of God may probably tell you something like, “We have your record. You have been in church for more than 25 years but you have lived in bitterness. Since anyone who walks in bitterness abides in darkness and heaven is a place of absolute light; there is no admission for darkness. You are cast into hell, the place of darkness” (Matthew 25:30). Anyone who lives in bitterness is in darkness – he is refused entry into heaven which is a place of light and admitted into hell which is a place of utter darkness. When you live in bitterness, you are living in darkness, the darkness of hell from the earth. Beloved, shun the lifestyle of bitterness. You will not miss it in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: Everyone who lives in bitterness is in darkness.
- Refuse to live in darkness through living in bitterness.
- Do not let any form of grudge settle in your heart.
- Make up your mind to forgive people ahead of time, even before they offend you.
PRAYER: O Lord, thank You for showing me Your love by reminding me of the consequences of bitterness. I receive the grace to live in love towards everyone, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
