Matthew 15:14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

I beseech you friends that you do not follow the leadership of the blind. They will lead you to a ditch.

We live in a world where people subject their lives to the leadership of the blind. The blind cannot lead the blind, it will be a major catastrophe. We must and should subject ourselves to the leadership of the one who has sight.

Darkness is a blinder. It has blinded the eyes of many and it’s fashioning a lifestyle for people to follow. The life of many are being dictated by the blindness that is in the world leading many into lust and into the desire of vain and perishable things. So, as their desires, so do they end. They perish with the using.

2 Corinthians 4:3,4 &6. But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

To be blind means ‘to be in the dark or to be ignorant of light or something else. As from Adam, the eyes of man was opened unto another type of light which is darkness and this light called darkness became the life of men being controlled by the prince of darkness, satan. He used to be a light bearer called Lucifer (the shining one or light bearer). But he became corrupt and his light became darkness therefore runs the world through darkness having beguiled Adam to steal his Authority, power of dominion.

But now in Christ Jesus is light restored and darkness taken away. Wherefore the scripture says, “in Him was life, and the life became the light of men. And the Light shines in darkness, and darkness could not overcome it.”

Also, in Satan was death and the death became the life of men. This world runs by darkness but we must arise as children of light that we may live after the other of Christ, and not of Adam.

Therefore, it’s saddening that men still love darkness. They hate the light and glued themselves to darkness. They love the promises and promotions of darkness more than the light. Darkness became more appealing than the light, hence, men loved and retained darkness even when light has come. John 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

This leads us to understanding of the prophecy of Isaiah saying, “Isaiah 60:2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.”
John 12:40  He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.

It’s time to come to light. It’s time to manifest as children of light. It’s time to stop the advancements of the darkness. Jesus spoke concerning us that we are and have become the light of the world and we must therefrom live accordingly. We must not subject ourselves to the leadings of the blind. We must arise as children of light to forge a new way for people to follow. We must not be foolish to follow after foolish and insane doctrines of men, solutions that brings one into more bondage rather than ease.

Don’t look up to men, many are blind. Don’t be led by the blind. Look up to Jesus and He will lead you in the new and living way. He says, “I am the way, the truth and the life….” Follow the Jesus, the way and He will show, teach and bring you into Himself, the Truth. Then you will have abundance of life, being Jesus. Stop following the crowd, follow Jesus. God bless you.
