The Purpose Of The World


"

The world is unalterably opposed and continually hostile to the things of God. Jesus said, “If the world hate you, ye know that it hated Me before it hated you” (John 15:18).

Any friend of Jesus is going to be an enemy of the world. Any friend of the world is an enemy of the Lord Jesus Christ. That is the reason the Bible says, “Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God” (James 4:4). Any man, woman, boy, or girl who is a friend to this ungodly system is an enemy of Almighty God.

So what is the purpose of the world? It is Satan’s system to draw away our hearts and minds from a devoted love for the Lord Jesus Christ.
