The people of God worship God
In the Spirit of God and In his Truth.
The World worships their Flesh
In the spirit of their father, Satan.
Virtually every act done in the World exalts their Flesh;
The Sin Nature that they were born with.
The World is Ruled
By the Lust of the Flesh [craving for sensual gratification],
And the Lust of they eyes
[Greedy longings of the mind]
And the Pride of life [assurance in one's own resources
Or stability of earthly things]--
These do not come from the Father [God]
But from the world [itself].
And the World Passes Away and Disappears,
And with it the Forbidden Cravings
(The passionate desires, the Lust) of it;
But he who does the Will of God
And carries out His purposes in his life,
Abides (remains) Forever.
IT IS THE LAST TIME—HOUR
[The End of this Age].
And as you have heard that the Antichrist
[He who will Oppose Christ in the Guise of Christ]
Even now many antichrists have arisen,
Which confirms our belief
THAT IT IS THE FINAL (THE END) TIME.
(1 John 2:16-18, AMP)
