Spiritual Darkness in the Church; The Devil’s Secret Revealed!

Spiritual darkness in the church means the presence of the Devil appearing as angel of light with great manifestation of unholy acts that blindfold the Christians and separate them from the LORD.

It’s awful and painful when the LORD revealed this sad situation to me. We must wake up from slumber and fight the good fight of faith!

Today’s message is not meant to judge anyone but to reveal the secret of the Devil and to open our eyes to see the spiritual darkness in the church through the Light of Jesus Christ!

“I was held by an Angel of the LORD in a vision and was taken out of the earth and I could see the whole earth like a small city surrounded by air and water. Many buildings and structures were created by man but the earth was in pitch-darkness despite the electrical infrastructures and I saw scanty spot of light illumination in the midst of the extreme darkness.”

“The Holy Spirit told me that I should not be carried away by the size of the earth because during the second coming of Jesus Christ, everyone on earth would see Him coming. And the darkness connotes the manifestation of the Devil across the earth.”

I want you to share this unpopular message with your friends because the strong influence of the spiritual darkness in the church intends to wipe away our souls from GOD’s kingdom!

How Did Spiritual Darkness Descend into the Church?

After Jesus Christ showed His disciples the Light and taught them how to live a holy life. Then His Blood was shed on the cross for the cleansing of our sins and He resurrected on the third day. Before His ascension to heaven, Jesus Christ gave a specific instruction:

“And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.”” (Mark 16:15)

The disciples did not spread to the world to preach after receiving the Holy Spirit rather they constitute a “mega church” in Jerusalem.

It was a big error that the early Christians restricted themselves to a building when the LORD expected them to always be on the move to witness the Gospel across countries.

The LORD is no more interested in building or temple. I tell you authoritatively that HE is interested in you!

“And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they shall be My people.”” (2 Corinthians 6:16)

When it was about the second century after Christ’s resurrection, the Devil took advantage of the congregational style to create his counterfeit church. The arrival of Roman Catholic marks the arrival of spiritual darkness in the church.

The Devil brought division to the midst of the Christians and the leaders did not focus on the Gospel message anymore but their priority was how to create doctrines that would make them unique.

Spiritual darkness in the church was established on the day the Christians started to have denominations and man-made doctrines.  

Is GOD Happy with the Current Status of the Church?

The spiritual battle that brings darkness into the church is not strange to the LORD, and Jesus Christ gave the warnings:

“How is it you do not understand that I did not speak to you concerning bread? –but to beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.”

Then they understood that He did not tell them to beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and Sadducees.” (Matthew 16:11-12)

The LORD alerts everyone through the vision revealed to John:

“And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” (Revelation 12:17)

Jesus Christ foresees darkness coming when he asked if he would really find faith on earth during His second coming? (Luke 18:8).  

The LORD is not happy with this current situation but it’s not His fault. When we make the right choice to embrace the Light of Jesus Christ then the spiritual darkness would disappear.     

10 Signs of Spiritual Darkness in the Church

1. Disobedience to the teachings of Jesus Christ and worship of images/leaders in the church.

2. Creation of doctrines and creeds that are alien to the Bible.

3. Availability of various versions of the Bible to water-down the teachings of Jesus Christ.

4. Church is equally yoked with Catholic, Muslim, Buddhist and the like.

5. Many church leaders are lovers of money, sucking the poor sheep to become a fat shepherd.

6. Abominations such as homosexual, transgender and the like are allowed in the church of our generation.

7. We hardly hear directly from the LORD but demonic speaking in tongues that are not interpreted for you had filled the church!

8. Acceptability of worldly style of music, dressing, slangs and traditions are great signs of spiritual darkness in the church.

9. False teachers are densely populated in the church.

10. Use of dark powers by many famous church leaders for miracles, signs and wonders in the church.

 Effects of Spiritual Darkness in the Church

1. No more GOD’s manifestation in many churches.

2. The Devil’s manipulations such as fake miracles are abound.

3. Love for things of this world than love for GOD.

4. Holiness is scarce!

5. Faith in the LORD is rare!

6. Some people who have one problem goes to church and come back home with multiple predicaments!

7. High numbers of lukewarm, backsliding and ‘half-baked’ Christians.

8. The word of GOD in the Bible is less important when compared to the New Age teachings around us.

9. Many Christians cannot boost entering heaven but hide under grace. Can grace and sin dwell together?

10. Every church that has its own special doctrines or creed are blindfolded and under the influence of spiritual darkness of the Devil. Deceits of the highest order everywhere!

How to Overcome Spiritual Darkness in the Church

1. Let’s ask for forgiveness and retrace our steps back to the First Love we have in the LORD.

2. We must go back to the Word of GOD in the Bible without misrepresenting it to suit ourselves.

3. Stop believing your Pastor’s teachings if you cannot find it in the teachings of the LORD recorded in the Bible.

4. Only the teachings of Jesus Christ should be our doctrines.

5. Stay away from church that spend long hours of religious activities in the building without pushing you out to preach the Gospel.

6. Forget about church interested in your money for building mega church and other things of this world instead of blessing the poor.

7. You must understand that church should only be a gathering for Bible Studies, Singing Hymns and Prayers just like Jesus Christ did.

8. Your money which should be more than tithes (according to Jesus Christ) must be invested in lives of the poor around you and gospel missionary.

9. We would overcome spiritual darkness in the church if we all understand that Jesus Christ did not ask us to sit in buildings on Saturdays/Sundays but to preach the Gospel to the world.

10. Our leaders should stop portraying themselves to us as a ‘super-god’, distracting us from the real identity of Jesus Christ.

I am not disputing the fact that the Light of the LORD can wipe away every spiritual darkness in the church but that won’t happen without our choice because the LORD does not abuse His Power.

Similarly, Adam and Eve made the choice of eating the forbidden fruit, we made the choice to mingle with the world and GOD would never abuse His power on us. It is wise you make the choice of pulling out from the ‘civilization and technologies’ that takes your heart away from the LORD.

Kindly embrace the Holy Spirit who would teach and counsel you on the righteous way to survive this corrupt world so that you can find it possible to escape the hot judgment of the end time!
