Cockroach is an insect. There are many species of this insect and each specie has different sizes. Some are relatively big and some are very tiny.

One common characteristic of this insect is that they always come out under darkness of the night to infest the garbage can and subsist in the rotten contents of the garbage.  Secondly, at the appearance of any source of light they will disappear and hide under the cover of the dirty garbage until the light is out.

The scripture described that evil activities by the evil people always take place under the darkness. Crimes thrive better in the night time.  The drunkers, the prostitutes and other illicit businesses operate mainly under the cover of the darkness of the night.  The occultism meetings and activities are always scheduled in the night time when so many eyes will not be able to witness their evil atrocities. All kinds of wickedness always operate in the environment of dark and concealed atmosphere. The scripture was not silent about this in John 3:19-20, And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.” Cockroach loves and thrive well in darkness, the insect assumed that no one is watching them. They remain dirty and continue to increase in number waiting for judgment day of the occupant of the apartment they had evaded. So also the judgment of God is awaiting those that loves to dwell in darkness of evil. Anyone that loves darkness instead of light can be described as spiritual cockroach

We know that some specific activities of man like medical personnel and fire-men and law enforcement agencies are required in the night because of the urgency of their services to save and protect lives and properties. These profession are exempted from the list of work of darkness because they legitimate duties that are helpful, merciful and timely required and needed in the society.  Regardless of this fact, the scripture warned us that we should, Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” (2 Corinthians 6:14-18)

The children of light must follow the directive of God and desist from every form of the evil work of darkness.  The Lord has commanded us to come out of it. He will be a Father unto us, and we shall all be His sons and daughters.

Prayer: O Lord Your word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. Grant me the grace to be able to operate in Your righteousness and holiness in the light of your word in Jesus name. Endow me the power and divine ability to separate myself from every form of the work of darkness in Jesus name, Amen.
