Do Not Love The World!

(I John 2:12-14)

I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven

you for his name's sake.

13 I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father.

14 I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you,

and ye have overcome the wicked one.

God and the world are not compatible.

“For all that is In the world…

Is not of the Father but is of the world.”

The world is transitory (Not permanent)

“And the world is passing away; and the lust of it.”

We have an Eternal Destiny

“He who does the will of God abides forever.”
