Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. James 4:4

 


Who are you living for?

Are you living for GOD or the world?

Everyone has a choice.

You can live with God, serving God, doing the will of God, or you can live for the world, serving the world and the will of the world.

God and the world are separate, just as good and evil are separate.

You either live with God or you live with the world, which is of the Devil.

There is no middle ground, with God. 

 

You either know God and God knows you

            or

you don't know God and He doesn't know you.

 

There is not one scripture in the holy word of God that says God will dwell within the hearts of those that serve the world.

 


What is "the world"?

The world's system, it's values, it's morals, it's enmity against God is meant by "the world".

God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; Acts 17:24

 

The world was good until man brought sin into the world.

Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: Romans 5:12

Look at this scripture, sin entered the world by one man and death by sin.  Sin and death are linked.  If you sin you perish in death.

Of course, believers as sin entered the world by one man, sin and death were also destroyed by one man, Jesus.

 

The world is evil

Jesus gave himself as a sacrifice for our sins, to deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God.

Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father. Galatians 1:4

And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. 1 John 5:19

 

The devil blinds the minds of the unbelieving world

In whom the god of this world that blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. 2 Corinthians 4:4

 

The world cannot see God, but believers know God

Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. John 14:17

Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world? Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me. John 14:22-24

O righteousness Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. John 17:25

 

God chose the least of the world

But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; 1 Corinthians 1:27
