God of this World

2 Corinthians 4:4…Whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.

 

The god of this age from the age the Eternal created the heavens and the earth is Satan, the devil, the adversary of God Almighty. This adversary is the prince of darkness, the ruler of the darkness of this world (John 12:31) His evil way of deceit blinds mankind into unto lack of understanding true love which is obedience to all the laws of God Almighty. The laws of love take away worldly blindness and restore the light of the Gospel of the Word to those that are willing to believe by becoming doers of the light of the eternal commandments. Darkness for mankind was born with deceit leading to disobedience in the Garden of Eden.

 

Genesis 3:1: Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman: Has God indeed said: You shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

 

The cunning, deceitful and ingenious mind of the serpent, the devil clearly never mentioned the wonderful gifts of life our Eternal had given to Adam and Eve. These were all the other nourishing plants, trees and fruits of the garden. The devil concentrated only on the forbidden tree of knowledge of good and evil. Adam was not deceived but succumbed to the peer pressure from Eve who convinced a wrong course of action. This wrong course has estranged mankind from the visual presentation of the Eternal to this day.

 

I Timothy 2:14-15: And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression. Nevertheless she will (yet) be saved in childbearing if they continue in faith, love, and holiness, with self-control. * Yet is inserted to clarify that no one has yet ascended into heaven except Christ. * John 3:13: No one has ascended to heaven but HE who came down from heaven that is the Son of Man who is in heaven. * A good woman at home must teach her children the Holy Scriptures as Timothy was taught as a child. This teaching would have been done by mother or grandmother. By accomplishing this they continue in faith, love, and holiness, with self-control. At resurrection, as Christ was resurrected, a great number will be expanded into the one family of God as brother, sister or mother.* Mark 3:35: For whoever does the will of God is MY brother and MY sister and mother.

 

Romans 8:16-19: The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs---heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with HIM, that we may also be glorified together. For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. * Sadly, many will be rejected for entrance into the eternal kingdom of God because of insufficient faith, love and holiness, with self-control.

 

Luke 13:24-27: Strive to enter through the narrow gate for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able. When once the Master of the house has risen up and shut the door, and you begin to stand outside and knock at the door, saying: Lord, Lord, open for us! And HE will answer and say to you: I do not know you, where you are from. Then you will begin to say: We ate and drank in YOUR presence, and YOU taught in our streets. But HE will say: I tell you I do not know you, where you are from. Depart from ME, all you workers of iniquity. * The gate to enter the kingdom is narrow, meaning a meager successful rate and restricted in nature. Even when we are doers of all the commandments of Leviticus, chapter 23 and Exodus, chapter 20, many will fall short of glory in faith, love and holiness, with self-control. To strive is strict discipline to struggle to make every effort to achieve perfect righteousness. This is demanded in similitude as the goodness and loving kindness of the Eternal. The evil god of this world, the adversary and great deceiver of God will deceive many by using the many thousands of religions of his evil world to teach only partial words of our Eternal’s love. These are false teachers and prophets.

 

Matthew 24:11-13: Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved.  * Many Christian denominations are quick to condemn another group of Christians because they think their faith is perverted. This is not the love of God but the hate of the god of this evil world. A sinner on death row may humble and repent before our Eternal and yet receive eternal life while the family that gloats with hate at his death will likely not enter the kingdom come at resurrection. The gloating family of hate will likely go to their grave with continued worship of the god of hate without a shred of Godly love in humble forgiveness.

 

Colossians 3:12-13: Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do.* Matthew 6:12: And forgive us our debts (sins), as we forgive our debtors.

 

Psalm 23:2: He makes me to lie down in green (tender) pastures; HE leads me beside the still waters (waters of rest). * Ezekiel 34:14: I will feed them in good pasture, and their fold shall be on the high mountains of Israel. There they shall lie down in a good fold and feed in rich pasture on the mountains of Israel. I will feed MY flock, and I will make them lie down, says the lord God. * Revelations 7:17: For the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters (waters of life). And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes. * We can overcome the evil god of this world until he is bound for a thousand years (Revelation 20:2). When we overcome by doing the will of God we are rewarded with the living fountains of waters. Be blessed until we meet again.   Visit:   cogmessiah.org   *   Visit: christisking.us
