The World

What is the World?

John 14.30 : "I will not speak with you any more: for the prince of the world cometh, he hath nothing in me ...."
Definition: Environment of human beings. Together all that exists on this earth: visible elements and spiritual forces.


Isaiah 14.12 : "Behold, you are fallen from heaven, you shining, you are the son of the dawn, you are fallen on the ground, you, the conqueror of the nations!"


Because of the consequences of the original sin of Adam and Eve, the human being is disconnected with God. But the redemptive sacrifice of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ allows us to redeem ourselves, to approach God and thus to be able to fight effectively against the enemy: the powers of the darkness of this world, governed by Satan.


John 16.33 : "You will have tribulations in the world, but take courage, I have conquered the world."


Archangel Michael expelled Lucifer from the sky with his sword. Jesus defeated the devil and his demons through the work of the cross to tear us away from the bonds of death. He is our only redeemer. Every Christian born again is under the protection of Jesus.


Psalm 34.8 : "The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him and he pulls them out of danger."


Anchored in Christ, we receive the assurance and power of the Holy Spirit. So we are armed to fight effectively. Satan has no choice but to flee. He can only survive through sin if we give him the opportunity.


Philippians 2:10: "That in the name of Jesus every knee may bow in heaven, on earth, and under the earth ...."


The quote : "in the Name of Jesus" is a power that goes beyond human understanding, its jurisdiction is infinite. It is the Spirit who gives life, the man comes to nothing. He therefore gives us the authority to quote relentlessly his Glorious Name.


Psalm 91.5 : "Thou shalt not fear the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor the contagion that strikes in the middle of the day, that a thousand fall by your side, and ten thousand. on your right, you will not be reached...."


The Word of God is unequivocal about its protection. It affirms an unfailing protection against the fiery darts of the enemy. She has no weaknesses. Only man falls into his pride and unbelief.


John 15.18 : "If the world hates you, know that it hated me before you: if you were of the world, the world would love what is its, but because you are not of the world, and I you have chosen from the middle of the world, because of that the world hates you."


Conclusion: if we do not turn away from the Lord Jesus, he is faithful and just to watch over us day and night. Whoever is marked with the seal of God, remains in the shadow of the Almighty. It is up to us to use the Name of Jesus in the power of the Holy Spirit to fulfill all good works pleasing to His will. If you are one of those whom God calls in our day and you want to remain faithful to Him in the midst of this sin-ridden society, you are not of this world !

Enter the value of this grace because the Word tells us: "For there are many called, but few chosen." (Matthew 22.14).

So the few who are attached to the teachings of the Bible, and fellowship with God are victorious "They will fight against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because he is Lord of lords and King of Kings, and the called ones, the elect and the faithful who are with him will also overcome them. " (Revelation 17:14)


John 17.13 : "And now I go to you, and say these things in the world, that they may have my perfect joy in them: I have given them your word, and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world, as I am not of the world, I do not ask you to remove them from the world, but to preserve them from evil.
