I was taught darkness (depression and dark entities) becomes present because you have inner darkness that attracted it. In this blog post, I will present why I question this tradition of thinking and explore if darkness attacks light.
Truth or Lie – Darkness Attacks Light
Darkness despises light because light reveals what cannot be detected in the dark. Darkness doesn’t despise itself (darkness). Darkness attacks light because light is the enemy of darkness. Now I have established why light is the opponent of darkness, I wish to consider this further.
The Enemy and War Strategies
Many believe including me that there was a war in the pre-existence between those who desired Satan’s dark plan of force versus those who desired God’s plan of free agency. This war has not ended. There continues to be a battle with dark forces but it won’t last forever. I believe the latter part of this war is presently occurring.
It is common knowledge when fighting a war, the strategy is to attack the enemy. Since darkness and light are enemies, dark negative entities attack the LIGHT WITHIN! They desire to steal your light and freedom so they can control you.
Don’t Fight Back – Smartest Choice
Surprisingly, the best way to alleviate negative entities is through prayer without fighting back. What kind of war strategy is that? A smart one, in fact, a much smarter strategy than dark negative entities employ. This is the reason why light will win over darkness. If you pray, refusing to fight, and trusting God’s power of love and light will chase away all darkness, you will have proven you trust God.
God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.1 John 1:5
While trusting God, also pray for guidance to find intelligence (true knowledge) to increase your light that will bring you peace while this war culminates to a finish.
A man is saved no faster than he gets knowledge, for if he does not get knowledge, he will be brought into captivity by some evil power in the other word, as evil spirits will have more knowledge, and consequently more power.(TPJS, p. 217.)
The glory of God is intelligence, or in other words, light and truth. Light and truth forsake that evil one.T&C 93:11
Fighting gives darkness more power because fighting generates fear-based negative energy that dark entities thrive on. Love is the correct emotion to produce light that consumes darkness.
Conclusion – Darkness Attacks Light
The negative entities’ goal is to consume light and to control you. They are extremely good at using deceit, lies, and trickery because they have been practicing their art since the beginning of time. The adversary understands time is limited so they are working against the light at high capacity.
Darkness attacks light is true! But don’t forget it is also true, light will overcome darkness! Light will win!
For with God nothing shall be impossible.Luke 1:37
Afterward- Fill Yourself Up With Light
There are those who have expressed concerns that poor choices are the reason negative entities attack them. If you stop and think about this belief, it doesn’t make sense. Since everyone makes poor choices, everyone would be getting attacked by negative entities. Okay, some mistakes are bigger than others, but this is still flawed thinking because of what was established in this blog post. Darkness attacks its enemy which is light. Why would darkness attack itself? What would darkness benefit attacking pure darkness?
It is clear, if you are being attacked by negative entities, they are attacking the LIGHT WITHIN YOU. Have faith! Strengthen yourself by helping the light within you to grow by praying for guidance to be led to intelligence (true knowledge) that will fill you up with LIGHT so there is NO room for darkness to inch its way in.
That which is of God is light, and he that receives light and continues in God receives more light, and that light grows brighter and brighter until the perfect day.T&C 36:4
