Job 18:18



18 He shall be driven [Hadaph] from light ['owr] into darkness [choshek], and chased [nadad] out of the world [tebel]. KJV-Interlinear



18 'He is driven from light into darkness, And chased from the inhabited world. NASB



The spiritually negative person is driven from truth, which is represented as the light in the scriptures, to the darkness of lies. The lies of every belief, every philosophy, every attitude, every opinion, which excludes truth.


Who does the driving? The negative person himself.


Each individual has the power to make decisions for himself. Each individual has the power to listen or not, to be interested or not, to learn or not, to have ambition and drive for life or not, to approach life from the position of truth and therefore reality, or from some other perspective.


Each person has the power to respect authority or not, to respect the laws of establishment or not, to abide by normal and sane moral standards or not. To choose a pattern of life and lifestyle designed by God, or not.


The attempted bombings in London and Scotland in these last couple of days, serves as a very good example of just how powerful the lies of the world can be. Normal criminals just want to rob you and then get away, but terrorists have fallen far short of normal. They have already driven their lives far into the darkness of lies. All they want to do is cause pain and hurt, and death to anyone and everyone.


They have no real objective but to bully and destroy. They have no real loyalty to their religion or any cause, for it is a lie anyway. They don't want to improve life for anyone. All they have is their hate for everyone, and their love for violence.


Isn't that somewhat similar to what Satan did when he began this attack against Job? Aren't the patterns of thought similar?


The inhabited world, or the civilized world, is the world of truth and sanity. People who reject truth, become wicked people by default. A life of perpetuated evil drives one deeper and deeper into the darkness and therefore the blindness of the lies of the world. Over time, the spiritually negative person becomes divorced from reality and detached from the sanity of the world.


We see many extreme examples of this in the news, and certainly when the Rapture occurs, and when the restraint of the Holy Spirit withdraws from the world, then history will see the maximum result of a world gone mad.


Today we are very lucky that we have some semblance of restraint in the world, otherwise religions like Islam would overwhelm the world with their evil insanity.

End Of Lesson

Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
