The world, (not the physical creation, but its fallen corrupt ways and means) feed on and spew out bad news with which to control and use you through manipulation. It is an evil world because mankind rejected our position and the enemy has usurped authority, however, evil is restrained by God out of His mercy and lovingkindness. Right now is the Day of Salvation, as God is saving people from eternal damnation, through the Good news of Yeshua Messiah, (Hebrew for Jesus Christ). This work of God is carried out through the Holy Spirit and the Congregation of Believers in whom the Spirit dwells. Paul explained it saying, “For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ. But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.” (2 Corinthians 4:6-7) It is for those who will believe this message of God’s love that time remains. The lost are reserved for wrath, but all Israel will be saved then the end will come. “I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers and sisters, so that you may not be conceited: Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in, and in this way all Israel will be saved. As it is written: “The deliverer will come from Zion; he will turn godlessness away from Jacob.” (Romans 11:25-26)
Do not listen to the world or mimic its behavior. Yeshua said to His disciples, “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.” (John 15:18-19) Some of you have suffered under the world’s standards, you’ve been rejected, slandered and mistreated because you belong to God. The world has chosen the beautiful, rich and powerful as its own. Scripture reminds us, “But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.” ( 1 Cor. 1:27) The world has a long history of wickedness, Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed because of the extent of their evil. Today, the genocide of Abortion can only be compared with pagan child sacrifices. Gender confusion, sexual perversion and depravity are not new, though widespread acceptance of it is new to America. Scripture says, “For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world.” (1 John 2:16).
The Believer can no longer live as though America was a Christian nation. Peter advised, “For you have spent enough time in the past doing what pagans choose to do—living in debauchery, lust, drunkenness, orgies, carousing and detestable idolatry. They are surprised that you do not join them in their reckless, wild living, and they heap abuse on you.” (1 Peter 4:3-4) Believers should not be partners or close friends with Unbelievers, because they share nothing important in common and there is no unity between idolatry and the Living God. This is especially true of those who profess faith, but live in debauchery. “Therefore, “Come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you.” And, “I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.” (2 Cor. 6:17-18) The Congregation of Believers are the temple of God, which must remain clean of the world’s filth, so that God’s presence can remain among us. The power of God is His presence among us, our entire life depends upon this.
