-Ecc 10:5-7:"There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, as an error which proceedeth from the ruler:Folly is set in great dignity, and the rich sit in low place.I have seen servants upon horses, and princes walking as servants upon the earth."
-Job 21:13-14:"They spend their days in wealth, and in a moment go down to the grave.Therefore they say unto God, Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of thy ways. "
-Mal 3:15:"And now we call the proud happy; yea, they that work wickedness are set up; yea, they that tempt God are even delivered.
-Psalm 73:3:"For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. "
--I John 4:6:We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
From the verses above, we can see that the world order on earth is an order that exalts evil over good. We can also see that it is an order that rewards wickedness and reproaches righteousness. To have a better understanding why this is so let us carefully examine the 1st verse above:
Ecc 5:6-7: There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, as an error which proceedeth from the ruler:Folly is set in great dignity, and the rich sit in low place.
The verse above states that the error of exalting evil over good proceeds from "the ruler". The question that ought to be on our minds should be who is this ruler? And the answer to that question is Satan of course.
Satan is the god of this world.
-2 Cor 4:4:In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not,
For ages, Christians have been deceived into think that their God is the ruler of this evil system. But how can this be possible? How can a righteous and Holy God be in control of an evil and rebellious system that is intolerant of Him and His commands? How can God be in charge of a system that represents what is completely out of character with Him?
Since the day that Adam and Eve partook of the fruit (characteristics) of the tree of knowledge of good and evil (knowledge of satan), Satan became their god:that is why their minds were opened to see the things he (the devil) wanted them to see.
God's banishment of Adam and Eve from the garden (His world order) shows that He ceased being their God (after they rebelled against Him) and unless they and all those who proceed from them choose to die to their rebellious and satan controlled natures and be reconciled with God, satan would continue to have dominion over them and be their god (Please note that Adam and Eve had to die to God to know satan and become conscious of self:In order to live again, they and their future generations would have to die to sin and satan (the work of the cross.)
Consequence of living under this system of error:
Is 5:20:"Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!"
Jer 23:17:"They say still unto them that despise me, The LORD hath said, Ye shall have peace; and they say unto every one that walketh after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you."
From these verses we see that the wicked system teaches us to call evil good and good evil. It teaches us to despise the things of God and seeks to justify us when we are out of step with God. It teaches us to walk after what we want and not what God wants and tells us that we are blessed and successful when we do that.
This is what is obtained in the world today. We are made to respect idolaters, Adultery is praised in the media, money and not God is worshiped: People tend to judge you by how much money you have and no one seems to care if people believe in God. People who perform nude in movies and have sex in the open like dogs are awarded countless Oscars and Golden globe awards while the chaste are labelled and criticized for being too 'prude'.
This evil system of exalting good over evil is also present in the so called 'church' system of the world.Very few people respect and listen to those those who speak and emphasize the uncompromising truth. (2 Tim 3:2 Tim 4:3) Most people respect money and are attracted to Lies and Flattery that promote their egos and desires (James 4:3,2 Pet 2:3).So called 'Men of God' are rated by how many Private Jets, Expensive cars and Palatial houses that they own, How Large their 'church' and congregation is and how well they can lie to the people by telling them what they want to hear and not what they need to hear (Isa 30:10-11). They are hardly ever rated by how sensitive they are to the Holy Spirit and how diligent they are in adhering to Christ's teachings.
Anyone who emphasizes the truth is prone to be labelled as a "self righteous","Holier than thou Zealot" and and most of the time they are ostracized by majority of 'professing' Christians (Amos 5:10,Gal 4:16) Why do You think these things are so? The answer to that question is simple: An evil ruler makes it that way. This evil ruler (satan) wants to deceive us to respect the abominable and despise God.
Come out of this wicked system:
- Gen 19:17:"And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed."
-2 Cor 6:17-18:Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
-Heb 11:15-16:"And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city. "
Come out from this wicked system that shapes your thinking to hate Your Maker my brethren. If You are mindful of this system You will have no part in God's world which is ideal .Mount Zion is Your home do not turn back. Flee to mount Zion.What You stand to gain in Mount Zion is so much more than what you stand to lose in Babylon. Come out from her or you will be consumed by her evil and partake in her judgment.
