John 3:18–21 (NKJV) — 18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil. 20 For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. 21 But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”

What is evil? Anything outside of Jesus and who He is.

Jesus does not condemn us. We bring condemnation upon ourselves when we refuse to believe in and accept Christ. We have refused to allow Christ into our lives and live in the darkness of sin.

Satan is the great deceiver. Genesis 3:4–5 “4 Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. 5 For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

America is now a WOKE nation. We are more educated, knowing all the things Satan has led us to. We walk in the darkness of sin and call it enlightened.

God has not left America; America has left God. And we wonder what has happened to a once great nation!

Those living outside of Christ are lost in satanic darkness. The believer lives in Jesus and is saved by the blood of Christ. The believer lives in His light. The true believer actively seeks Christ.

Those rejecting Christ live in the condemnation of sin. The follower of Christ is freed from condemnation. The believer knows Christ died for his sins and paid the penalty for his sin.

The unbeliever is the one who has refused to believe the truth of God. He has “not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”

Some reading this will do so in arrogance believing they do not need God. They have rejected the truth of God. Some reading this may even be regular, active members of a church, but they are not members of the Kingdom of God.
