John 1:10 He was in the world, and the world came into being through Him, and [yet] the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His own, and His own people did not accept Him. 12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name, (NASB2020)
Have you ever pondered the Good and evil question? Being raised in a Southern Baptist Church where there was what most might call an old time religion, I was exposed to a concept that was correct but at the same time lacking in the whole of truth. Christians have all at one point or another before their conversion come to realize that everyone is a sinner, and as such no one is in fact considered good before God; but even after becoming a Child of the King, I have often run into folks who I regarded as good people, but I knew that they didn’t know Jesus as the forgiver of their sins. They were not children of God. But I also knew that outwardly in their doing they had no appearance of sin. And it was these people who on occasion gave me pause to wonder why such a great price was needed in order to provide salvation for them.
When we read of Jesus coming in verse 9 of John 1, we can see that Jesus first coming had a positive impact on every man to enlighten him or her. John 1:9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. (KJV)
This verse says that just the fact that Jesus came into the world 2000 years ago that now as then every man has been touched with an enlightenment. Even those who did not know Him. There is a sense of knowing what is right Vs what is wrong that came with Jesus first coming, but as you read on you find that He was not known for who He is, not by the world or by even His own. We were all enlightened by Him but that did not lead to Jesus being accepted. Man was impacted in a positive way without even knowing it, but he still maintained the freedom to believe what he wanted, and to do as he pleased, even to do evil. And thus he was given the right to believe or to refuse to believe in Jesus’ own payment for his sin and thereby receive or deny the gift of a power to become a son of God with a future in the eternal kingdom. Jesus’ death and resurrection made purchase of our salvation.
This light that came into the world enlightened every man to the good that man could choose, but at the same time did not remove his sin, which could if left unforgiven blind him from the truth, who was Jesus, the Son of God who takes away the sin of the world. Jesus left with us the Holy Spirit as the restrainer of Satan and the flood of evil that would come when He would no longer restrain.
People who today think that there is good in all people, that we are all God’s children have a great awakening coming along with their Great Reset when it is allowed by God. Will it come at this time. If you know nothing of the Great Reset, do yourself a favor and do some research. Only God is in control of the restraint that hinders its coming.
In that day men without Christ, who seem good by outward actions will have the sin which resides in their hearts exposed. We are to some degree observing this happen today and we stand in awe of the power of sin to expose pure evil when it is set loose within man. And when our leaders become this evil; then Jesus tells to hope only in Him. Come out from among them My people.
