The word of God says: “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world” (1 John 2:15).
“For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God” (1 Corinthians 3:19).
“If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 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. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever” (1 John 2:16–17).
Unfortunately, at this moment in time many people are at ease and in love with the things of this world, and mocking the word of God as Peter foretold “…that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, and saying, ‘Where is the promise of his coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation’” (2 Peter 3:3-4).
However, “The day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up” (2 Peter 3:10).
“But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light” (1 Thessalonians 5:4–5).
Jesus says: “Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man” (Luke 21:34–36).
