Defeat Over Worldliness

Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away? Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?


What are some signs that this sin-cursed world is passing away?
Why did Christ reprove the Pharisees?
What is meant by perilous times in the Bible?

1 John 2:15,16,17
2 Peter 1:4
Luke 9:25
1 John 5:5

Yes, these are perilous times where men will turn from bad to worst and where people will turn to godless philosophy and fish wives tales and legends. But those who are in the Lord will walk by His will through His words in the Bible. Thanks for the inspired post. God bless you always.

Hello May:)

Very inspiring post full of wisdom.

Your questions are very penetrating.

While there are so many ills facing the degenerating society,yet the time has not come for the passing away of this world unless there is a nuclear war.If Taliban gets hold of Pakistan's nuclear arsenal then we can expect the world to come to a miserable end soon.

Best wishes:)

It's not a perfect world and man himself is to blame for it. But be it as it may, I love all that is in it. God created everything by Holy Design and Divine Reason. 'Guess my role in it, as with every God-loving creature, is to make sure that good prevails. So whatever good that I see --- I'd like to encourage it, preserve it, move it forward, ask God to bless it that it may stand strong and safe. The world may end anytime God sees fit, with or without any help from us. But I would like to think that I have done my part as God intended .... by divine design. So is it with all of God's children.

Blessings to you and yours, my friend.

Its hard to detached ourselves to the world on your own, but thank God that through His grace and mercy it is not impossible to give up things of the world if we truly believe and rely on God. God bless us all.

I must daily remind myself of this. This world will end but God is always!

Like Faith Imagined, I frequently remind myself that only God and people are eternal. That perspective helps me more earnestly desire to live my life so that I can influence others for the Kingdom rather than for my comfort and desires.

You asked: " What are some signs that this sin cursed world is passing away? "

Okay, I'll tell you:

1.) The First Seal Of Revelation - World War I [ Rev 6:1-2 ].
2.) The Second Seal Of Revelation - World War II [ Rev 6:3-4 ].
3.) Fire From Heaven - Hiroshima and Nagasaki In 1945 - Rev 13:13 ].
4.) The First Rumored War - The Cold War [ Mathew 24:6 ].
5.) The Political Fornications Of Latter Day Tyre - The United Nations, Breton-Woods, NATO, SEATO, Marshall Plan, etc... [ Isaiah 23:17 ].
6.) The Re-establishment Of Judah To The Promised Land - May 1948 [ Mathew 24:32-35 ].
7.) The Second Rumored War - The War On Terror [ Mathew 24:6 ].
8.) The Third Seal Of Revelation - The Worldwide Financial Collapse [ Rev 6:5-6 ].

Should I keep going... or, would rather read ' A Highly-Accurate Prophetical Time Line '?
