Friendship With The World Is Enmity With God

My Fellow Blissfuls!💕

This carnal world is not compatible with the Kingdom of God; with the Holy Spirit. So, one cannot fit cozily into the world and at the same time fit into the Kingdom of God.

1 John 2:15 NIV
Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them.

Reflect on that.

I don’t understand why people of the Spirit should even care about what this stinking world thinks about us. Why should we even bother to fit in with it? Why should their acceptance carry any weight?

Frankly, the opinion of this world is thrash to me. Period. I don’t care about it. And you shouldn’t.

Luke 6:26 NIV
Woe to you when everyone speaks well of you, for that is how their ancestors treated the false prophets.

The world hated Jesus and killed Him. They hate us too and will kill us in a heartbeat if they had the chance. Our differences are irreconcilable; because though we’re here, we’re not of this world.

John 15:18-19 NIV
[18] “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. [19] If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.

Once upon a time, someone said me, “If God really exists, prove it.”

“And why in the world would I want to do that?” I replied.

“You think so highly of yourself.” I continued. “Do you think the Creator of this Universe cares about your insignificant and microscopic opinion? Why would He want to impress an unnoticeable speck of dust like you? And why should I?”

Needless to say the silly God-hater was shocked. 😀

Beloved Blissful, I’m writing this message to strengthen you against the hatred, criticism and rejection of the world around you. Be strong in the Lord. Stop trying to impress people who don’t care about your Lord. Stop seeking their acceptance. It’s not worth it.

Worse still, if you succeed in that, you’ll poison your relationship with the Lord. So don’t even bother. Because friendship with the world is enmity with God.

James 4:4 NIV
You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.

Instead, continue in your walk with the Lord. Seek to know Him better. Seek to deepen your intimacy with Him. Seek to fortify your loyalty and submission to Him. That’s all that really matters.
