11 Depart, depart , go out from there, touch no unclean thing; go you out of the midst of her, be clean you who bear the vessels of the LORD.
|2 Corinthians 6:17||James 4:4|
4 Adulterers, do you not know that the friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wants to be a friend of the world is the enemy of God [and has committed adultery with the world].1
|1 John 2:15-16|
15 Do not love the world or the things that are by the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. [Do not love what the system of the world and man has invented: clothing, food sensations, sports, pleasures, toys, gadgets, customs, traditions, entertainments, pastimes, etc. Use the things of the world as though not absorbed by them and with indifference. 1 Cor 7:31. From the Word of the Lord within: "Everyone should put away what they are doing for the sake of righteousness. You must stand apart from this fast paced world; you can't be in it."]
16 For everything by the world — the desires of the flesh, the desires of the eye, and the boastful pride of life (or possessions) — is not by the Father, but exists by the world. [For what your flesh and eye desires, and your pride of your life, comes not from the Creator, but comes from the system of the world, ruled by the god of this world, Satan. Whatever you covet is idolatry. Desires (lusts) of the flesh and of the eye are covetousness, which is not even to be named once among true Christians, Eph 5:3,5; and pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. Pro 6:18. From the Word of the Lord within: "Pride can be stating how much you paid for something. So repent out of this foolishness."]
10 You who love the LORD, hate evil. He preserves the souls of his saints. He delivers them out of the hand of the wicked.
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, "Come out of her, my people, so that you do not share in her sins, and so you will not receive her plagues.2 [Some of God's people are still in Christendom Babylon; God is pleading with his elect to leave the false church. Arise and depart, for this is not the rest. Because it is defiled, it shall destroy you, even with a grievous destruction. Micah 2:10]
|Job 1:8 |
8 The LORD said to Satan, "Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one who fears God and eschews [hates, avoids, shuns] evil?"3
