THE ENEMIES OF GOD
“Let God arise, Let His enemies be scattered; Let those also who hate Him flee before Him.” Psalm 68:1.
The Bible declares God’s judgments upon all the enemies of God. And to us, we may think the enemies of God are evil people working against the children of God or the work of God. We can also conclude that enemies of God are those Muslims or terrorists who are killing Christians, or Government officials who oppose Christians, closing churches or Christian activities.
But do you know that being an enemy of God is easier than all that? Let’s read another set of enemies of God from the Bible in the Book of James 4:4, “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.”
Worldliness makes a Christian an enemy of God. Are there not many enemies of God today? When you refuse to surrender your life to Jesus Christ, you are an enemy of God.
When you love the world, you become an enemy of God. When you dress worldly, make your hair with worldly style, when you care for the things of this world more than heavenly things, you become not just worldly but an enemy of God.
When you care for prosperity more than purity, when you like expensive things, showing off, you are worldly and automatically an enemy of God.
Any “so called” ministers of God who allows worldliness in his ministry is an enemy of God, any minister who preaches more on earthly things than heavenly things is worldly and also an enemy of God.
That is the reason I don’t care about what many people say when I preach the truth against these prosperity and luxurious ministers, some say they are elderly fathers in the Lord, some say we should not speak even preach the truth that against men of God. But I say they are not men of God but enemies of God, and they should be treated as one.
Any preacher that preaches more about being comfortable in the world than being mindful of heaven, rapture or death is an enemy of God, not minister of God.
You may not be worldly, you may not love the world, you may not dress worldly, but when you become a friend of the world, when you become friendly with worldly ministers and churches, you become an enemy of God.
The Bible also says, “Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God?” James 4:4.
We must not be friendly with what God hates in the name of being civilized or friendly.
When we allow worldliness, we become an enemy of God. That is the reason worldliness leads to hell fire, because hell is prepared for enemies of God.
We should search our lives by the light of God’s word to expose any worldliness in us and repent of it, no matter how small.
“Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. 17 And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.” 1 John 2:15-17.
