They would not face the BLACKNESS OF DEPRAVITY. You see, this is the
REPROOF OF GOD, THIS IS THE REBUKE OF GOD.
Ever notice how a littlechild will confess he did something wrong, but it is almost impossible to get him to tellyou what HE DID? He will wail and cry and carry on and confess he was naughty, andyell that he was sorry, but NEVER WILL TELL YOU FOR WHAT! You have to drag itout of them. Likewise does God have to
DRAG IT OUT OF US.
Mankind will CONFESS his multitude of sins. He knows he rapes, steals, murders andcommits gross violence. All the primary religions of the world focus on the multitude of sins, and most of them claim that if man would JUST CLEAN UP HIS ACT, AND GETRIGHT WITH GOD, he would be in fine shape. Modern Christianity is no different, for the ‘many’
DUTIFULLY CONFESS TO GOD THEIR MULTITUDE OF SINS.
Our altars are stained with the tears of sincere and dedicated people who have admitted toGod their deepest and darkest secrets.
BUT NEVER WILL THEY ADMIT TO THEIR ONE SIN.

Under kinsman-redeemer law, CHRISTCAME TO EARTH AND PURCHASED THE ENTIRE HUMAN RACE BY HISBLOOD ATONEMENT. He now owns everyone, lock, stock and barrel. By this act of purchase,
ALL THE BARRIERS ERECTED BY GOD AGAINST MAN WEREUTTERLY DESTROYED. EVEN THOSE SUPERNATURAL POWERS AND THEDOMINION OF SATAN WAS UTTERLY DESTROYED.
Satan’s power anddominion over the minds of man is a dominion of fraud and deception. He was totallydethroned by Christ and has no real claims over anyone. He gets his power by
DEFAULT, BY DECEPTION, BY SECRECY, BY CUNNING.“And HAVING SPOILED PRINCIPALITIES AND POWERS, he made a shew of them OPENLY, TRIUMPHING OVER THEM IN IT. (Colossians 2:15)
The word “spoiled” is “apekduomai” and it means
TO DIVEST WHOLLY, TODETHRONE, TO REMOVE TOTALLY, TO ELIMINATE COMPLETELY.
