The Daily Word of Righteousness

The Day of Atonement, #12

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. (I John 2:15)

The present-day victorious saints, the firstfruits whom God has called to His side in this hour, must, through Christ's Virtue, achieve victory over love for the world. Jesus will help us to come out of the world spirit as we cry out to Him.

The victorious saints are the rulers of the ages to come and they must prevail against any love for the world that is in them. The present world system is not of God, it is of Antichrist. In particular, the economic systems that are reaching out to ensnare every human being in the worship of money are to be perceived by the saints as the spiritual darkness they indeed are. God will provide our needs as we seek His face. We do not have to sell our soul to Satan in order to have food to eat and clothes to wear.

Christ will purge His people of love for the world, of trust in the world system of economics, by the shaking and tribulation that even now are coming upon us. In the near future, persecution and fiery trials will fall on the saints. Terror will confront the nations of the earth. These tribulations will release, from slavery to the Antichrist world economic system, the remnant whom Christ will call. The Bride must come out of the world spirit. Love for the world must be purged from the Bride.

Finally, the love of the present world spirit will be purged from the whole earth. There will be no more "sea" of people who labor in the mud of the earth with their backs turned toward their Creator.

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. (I John 2:16)

The demon population appears to be increasing on the face of the earth. The spiritual environment in which we live is darker than ever before. Even conscientious Christians are becoming the victims of the deceptions and urging of demons as they prey on the appetites of our body and soul.

Moral lawlessness and perversion, rage, strife, covetousness, occult practices, drunkenness, are found in Christian homes as well as among the people of the world. Through the television and computer the moral filth of Satan, his murder, lust, and drunkenness, are influencing Christian people. The believers are not consecrated enough, in numerous instances, to flee from the television, from the abominations being introduced to mankind by the forces of Hell.

Grace abounds in our day. God is ready to deliver His people, through Christ, from the chains of immorality, covetousness, lawlessness, violence, and—a rapidly growing evil—occult practices.

The Charismatic believers are embracing occult practices in order to gain power in the supernatural realm. We are to rigorously avoid all efforts to create reality by our imagination, our words, imaging, having "faith," positive thinking, success thinking, or similar soulish, mental techniques. These are forms of sorcery, of witchcraft. If we have engaged in them we are to renounce them thoroughly, confessing them as sin.

To be continued.
