Children of Light

Two Kingdoms

There are two kingdoms mentioned in the Word of God:

  1. The Kingdom of God which is light, truth, love, and the narrow way of eternal life
  2. The kingdom of this world which is darkness, deception, hatred, and the broad path to death and destruction

In Colossians we see that God has provided deliverance from the power of darkness by the blood of his dear Son, Christ Jesus.
Col 5:12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: 13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: 14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

Light has no fellowship with darkness

As seen in Ephesians, we are not to have any fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but reprove them:

Eph 5:8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: 9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) 10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. 11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

In 1 John we see that all who walk in darkness do not have fellowship with God our Father and His Son the Lord Jesus Christ
1 John 1:5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
Who is your king?  Have you chosen yet?
A kingdom by nature has a king.  The Lord Jesus Christ is King of kings and Lord of lords and the everlasting king of Israel.  As shown in Colossians, Jesus Christ is king of the kingdom of light which is in opposition to the kingdom of darkness.  The king and god of this world is Satan and he comes to kill, steal, and destroy and is the father of lies.

  1. This is an excellent article. If one true living God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is not our Father, then, quite frankly, our father is Satan. There are only TWO choices. Which “team” will we play on? Keep in mind, one person cannot play on two “teams” at the same time!
