TOPIC: YOUR EYES WILL BE OPENED (I)

Read: 1 John 2:15-17

[15]Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.[16]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.[17]And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

MEMORISE: 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 (1 John 2:15).

EXPOSITION
The word “world” comes from the Greek word- _kosmos._ It is the origin of the word “cosmetics” which means an adornment or arranged ornament purposefully created to allure, deceive and attract someone to its beauties without a proper knowledge of the dangerous spirits behind it. God created this world for His glory but sin defiled it and turned it against God. Since then Satan and his demons have adorned, polished and created many fanciful, attracting and alluring things to draw people to themselves but to go against the will of God.

If your love is not in God, it will be in the things in the world. One secret of our living is the love we express toward objects around us. Love is the driving cord of our soul, spirit and body to magnetise us to good or wrong objects. Satan knows this secret that if you love a man, woman, money, sexual immorality, car, house and other things, you will be ready to give all your life to them. The moment you love an object, your eyes will be opened to it. you see it in another realm and long for it. if at all it will lead to injuries, dangers and even death, you do not care, simple because you love it.

God warns us not to love ephemeral things – the alluring beauties in the world because they are operations, systems, beliefs of the world that are strongly influenced and supported by high ranking principalities and powers of the world, in order to draw us away from God. Satan promises that “your eyes will be opened” but he does not say that there are evils, perditions, sights, sorrows and eternal deaths, if you eat the forbidden fruits. Obey God today and you will enjoy the fruits of the land. This was how he deceived Adam and Eve, “your eyes will be opened”. The consequences are grievous. Beware of the deceits of the devil.

PRAYER POINTS
1. Lord, keep my soul from the deceit of the devil.
2. Father, uphold me by the power of Your Word in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. Father, close the eyes of our leaders to the deceits of corruption in the name of Jesus Christ.
