“Be careful, be careful, love has got a hold on you like a thief in the night” was one of my favorite reggae songs by John Holt. This song is true in many ways and I have finally gotten the revelation to that song. It is actually telling us to be careful of the things that have a hold on us like a thief in the night; things that are evil, despicable and disgusting, things that originate from the devil.
Things done at nights are often misconstrued as love, but it is only one of many disguises the thief, who is the devil, uses to steal, kill, and destroy those who are lost (John 10:10). The thief has stolen so many hearts, killed so many hopes and dreams, and destroyed countless marriages and families. That is why the song says be careful, because the love you think you feel is the lust of the flesh, which is devil in disguise.
No, I am not condemning anyone, nor am I being holy, righteous, and sanctimonious. I used to be one of those people going down the wrong path, until I realized that it was a destructive path that only leads to hell. A path that allows the devil to use you as a pawn to destroy the lives of others, and yourself. A path that steers you further and further from the one and only true God of the universe. No I am not forcing God or Jesus on anyone, don’t curse the messenger, but be careful who is taking charge of your life.
Are you living dangerously? Who are you living for, is it God or the devil? We are living in the last days, which is perilous times. Listen, if Jesus appears in the blink of an eye, will you be ready to go with Him? Do you know where you are going? This is another opportunity for you to accept God’s personal gift of His only begotten son, Jesus Christ. Please don’t let it pass you by, just go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions.
All glory, praise, honor, and thanks go to God for allowing me to write this brief message to His children; May His grace, peace, and mercy be theirs continuously in Jesus name. Amen.
