“15 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.
16 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.
17 And the world passes away, and the lust thereof: but he that does the Will of God abides for ever.
18 Little children, it is the last time: and as you have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.” 1 John 2:15-19
The lusts of the world will pass away with the world: but he that does the Will of God endures forever. Satan is the head of the world’s systems and those who rely on the systems of the world as their source are not of God. Those who have turned their back on God’s Divine Law of Grace through faith in Jesus Christ, Who He is and what He has done on Calvary’s Cross, are being made manifest.
Even now there are many “little gods”, the pseudochrists, who claim to be of Christ, yet deny the power of God through their unbelief. Their source is of the world (self efforts, self will and humanistic psychology) and not faith in the redeeming work of the Son of God – Jesus Christ.
Hear me friends, they are being made manifest to us. Those who have followed the world into false doctrines and precepts of man are being made manifest. They who boldly declare from the pulpit that they are little gods are being revealed to the congregation that they were not all of us.
“For the time is come that judgment must begin at the House of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the Gospel of God?” 1 Peter 4:17
There are some who need to awaken from their slumber and decide this day in whom they will follow. Only they who do the Will of God will abide forever.
“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.” Hebrews 13:8
God’s Will is for none to perish but all come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9). To those who are perishing, the preaching of the Cross of Christ is foolishness but to those of us who are saved it is the Power of God (1 Corinthians 1:18 ).
The Lord is sending out His messengers declaring the Cross of Christ for Salvation and Sanctification. Recognize how you, whoever you may be, receive this Gospel Truth. This is not a “new extra biblical revelation” it is the same Gospel that the Apostle Paul declared through out his 14 epistles. Don’t dismiss the messengers the Lord is sending to you. Discern the messengers. Test the spirits. Study to show thyself approved. Know that you know that you know in Whom you have believed. God will show you great and wonderful things if you will follow in His Will and His Ways. The Lord has chartered the path for each of us to follow. Seek and ye shall find. Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth and the Life…no one comes to the Father except through Him (John 14:6).
