1 John 2:11
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.
The following quote from Matthew Henry Commentary on 1John2:11: But he that hateth his brother is in darkness. As is before expressed in 1 John 2:9, to which is added, and walketh in darkness; he goes on in it, and takes delight in it, as dangerous and uncomfortable as it is: and knoweth not whither he goeth; he cannot discern between good and evil; he puts darkness for light, and light for darkness; he sees not what is before him, nor what stumblingblocks lie in the way; he is not aware of the snares, pits, and traps he is in danger of falling into; nor does he know and consider what these paths of darkness, of sin, and ignorance, and infidelity, lead unto, even unto utter darkness, where is weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth: and the reason is, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes; either Satan, the god of this world, who blinds the minds of them that believe not, and who is darkness itself, and the cause of darkness in himself and in others, and one of whose names this was with the JewsF5Yalkut Simconi, par 2 fol 44 4 ; See Gill on Luke 22:53; or that natural darkness which sin has brought upon the understanding, and has blinded the eyes of it, called the blindness of the heart, Ephesians 4:18, so that a man under the power of it is ignorant of himself, and knows not that he is blind and miserable; is a stranger to the way of peace, and life by Christ, and knows not what he is about, and where he is, or whither he is going, and what his end will be.
Yes, we walk under grace within Salvation but recognize there will be temptations and maladies which our Lord did not identify, but related they will be there.
Be wise and know the depth of your walk and relationship with Yeshua. As the foolishness which has gripped this world deepens, so do the dangers, within the world increase.
This period of time is the calm before the storm, it is a time for us to learn, examine, prepare and definitely draw closer to our Savior Yeshua. Those with the spirit know what I am revealing and place all into prayer and preparation. Understand the Lord provides a way through and out. But understand there will be troubled times for all believers. Go in peace, strength, and under the guidance of our Lord Yeshua. Blessings.
