We can’t escape the arrogance of the secular world system. It is all around us. They set their degrees, their certifications, licensing, federal programs, systems, entertainment industry, fashion, etc. In all, no mention, not even a small acknowledgment of God All Mighty. That is so because the devil is the god of this world system according to 2 Corinthians 4:4. You want to know why things are so messed up. That is because we are not under a system dominated by Godly principles, but to the contrary, a system that is designed to promote the destruction of societies, families and lives in general. The devil’s agenda is a destructive agenda (John 10:10).
The sad thing is when we, as God’s people, go after the validation of the world, when we as God’s people, reject God and His ways to follow a failed system. This is nothing new, it was the same spirit that seduced the children of Israel to asked for a king (First Samuel 8)
Have you noticed that the world system is not about results? From the beginning it is what it is, an unfinished tower (Genesis 11). They are good in addressing issues, but pitiful in fixing anything. That is because they totally reject God’s intervention. On the other hand, God is a God of results. The Bible tells us in First John 2:27,
But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.(NKJV)
I do not promote ignorance. It is a Biblical mandate for God’s people to study and show ourselves approved (2 Timothy 2:15). But the moment we lose sight of God and place our hope in anything else, but God, we become a part of this world system. It is the anointing of God that breaks the yoke, not the secular system. (Isaiah 10:27) The anointing of God is effective. Let’s talk about that world system. This world system has a beginning and his end is coming.
- It all started in heaven with Satan wanting to be like God (Isaiah 14:14).
- It was introduced in the Garden as Satan, in the form of a serpent effectively questioned what God established as truth. (Genesis 3)
- And, it took off in the Tower of Babel as the enemy used a man by the name of Nimrod (Genesis 10:10 / Genesis 11)
- It continues powerfully through our days as the Babylonian system and it will continue until the end of this age. Its destruction is a Biblical reality. Revelation 18:1-4 tells us,
And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.(KJV)
We, as God’s people, are not called to hate people that are not saved. We are not called to walk around as ignorant people who hate education or people who stay in hiding. We are the ambassadors of God’s light. We carry the truth; we carry the power and the effective solution for the main problem facing our world today, sin. Our only hope is Jesus. We are called to surrender our lives totally to Him, and to refuse to mix with the world system. Beloved, God is enough.
