Are You An Enemy of God
Are You An Enemy of God
The World’s System is God’s enemy. An Enemy is an opposing force, an armed adversary, any hostile group of people, a foe.
When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.
You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world is hatred toward God? Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. Or do you think Scripture says without reason that the spirit he caused to live in us envies intensely? James 4:3-5
Do not love the world (world’s system) or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world-the cravings (desires) of sinful man, the lust (desires) of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does-comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever. 1 John 2:15-17
The World’s System is Satan’s system. His way is to attract you to anything other than a love for Almighty God. Satan wants you to love your hobbies, work, family, money, leisure and your own life more than God. He wants you to be on the throne as king (kingdom of self). You are in charge. You get your way. You are right. You are in control. Where your treasure is your heart will also be. Where do you place the most value, on God or something else?
If you are in love with the World’s System then you are an enemy of God’s. You cannot serve two masters. You will love one and hate the other. You cannot love both the world’s system and God. The world’s system is built on the desires, cravings and wants of the sinful man and the boasting of your importance.
God the creator, redeemer and sustainer of life wants you to be reconciled with HIM and sent HIS son to forgive you of your rebellious nature. Seek to conform to the image and likeness of Christ today and walk in HIS promises. The desires of this world will pass but the person who does the will of God will be eternally satisfied and fulfilled. Walk today in the promises of God. Renew your thinking by washing your mind thoroughly in the Word of God. Are you seeking God’s Word or the world?
