Whoever says he is in the light and hates his brother is still in darkness. Whoever loves his brother abides in the light, and in him there is no cause for stumbling. But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes. 1 John 2:9-11
Today's politically charged environment has many people being ugly and saying mean and hateful things instead of doing the opposite, praying. Of course some of those having outbursts or causing riots may not know Jesus as their savior but any who do should know better. It is the enemy's territory for certain.
How about fighting against sin and evil and not the person elected to lead our country? Deceiving spirits are out there and some masked as legitimate news organizations. You have to be on your guard and discerning. Many prayer organizations have 24 hour prayer going on for this nation. It is exciting to know how God is working! Some walking in darkness hate this as dark hates light.
God's way is to love and turn the other cheek and pray for those being evil and cruel. Some may be your Facebook friends or even family. They may be lost souls who have no idea of the truth or they are being led by seducing spirits. Be nice and go pray.
PRAYER: Since the beginning of time there have been hateful people who don't like goodness. I pray Lord misguided deceived people. I pray for those being led astray that you would transform their hearts and minds and lead the lost to you. In Jesus' name. Amen.
