Casting a long shadow refers to a dominating and pervasive presence. Such is not a shallow commitment but that which is intended to be long-lasting. Its goal is to construct a corrosive element in its implementation. It is to tear down the former and introduce a replacement.
Forces of evil have invaded the moral foundation of America; the morality that once existed, and is introducing immorality as a norm. There is the casting aside of the old; and in with the new, even within the Church of many Western nations. Once such territory is gained; it seeks to enlarge it borders.
As America allows the promotion of ungodliness; those who are promoting such are not satisfied with just bringing America into its grasp, but other nations as well. These ungodly elements are demanding acceptance; even if it infringes on biblical territory.
The Biblical concept of marriage has been discarded by those who are now attempting to enlarge their borders; attempting to force acceptance of transgender behavior as well. We are seeing more harm than good being promoted in these latter days (2 Timothy 3:1).
When one begins to erase God, out of the equation, one is indeed treading on dangerous ground; especially as they continue to encourage the evilness of man and being allowed to do so. Scripture tells us: The wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness, and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness (Romans 1:18).
Scripture reveals: Have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness but rather reprove (or expose) them (Ephesians 5:11). One is to expose sinfulness; bring it to light and show it for what it really is, that one may see its hideous nature and understand its terrible consequences.
America has been a blessed nation but is now seeing casting a long shadow of immorality to flood the land; with evidence of a new permissiveness, other than its former stand for godliness. There are ungodly individuals, and organizations, who are seeking to undermine the "One Nation under God" concept.
It is unfortunate; but many who seek to oppose the goliaths of ungodliness, cave into opposition rather than stand. There is a new foundation being laid, right before one's eyes; as the ways of righteousness are pushed aside, to enlarge the borders of the ungodly.
The prophet Isaiah revealed: "The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them has the light shined" (Isaiah 9:2). No longer casting forth darkness but receiving the Light of the World (John 8:12). Jesus, in His coming, fulfilled that prophecy.
The casting a long shadow of deception may be ongoing today; but so also, is the "Light of the Glorious Gospel of Christ." There is an opportunity to cast off the works of darkness; and to put on the "Light of the Gospel." The Gospel of Christ is as that of a lighthouse whose beacon shines forth as a safe haven to all who will acknowledge its purpose.
