Sept 10 – The Spitting Cobra

When the African snake called the spitting cobra spots its prey, it spits and never misses the victim’s eyes. Thus blinded, they become his dinner. This nasty reptile reminds me of a truth found in the Bible. Paul, wrote to the Corinthians, “the god of this age” (Satan) “has blinded the minds”“ of unbelievers “lest the light of the gospel of Christ… should shine on them.” Perhaps as you listen today you are thinking, “how quaint that someone in this day and age still believes in the truthfulness the Bible. Well, that is exactly how the Devil you don’t believe in wants you to think. Paul wrote, “the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, nor can he know them because they are spiritually discerned.”I courteously suggest that you turn to Jesus, the great physician, He will open your blind eyes. He has said, “I have come into the world that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness.”
