Separation from the WORLD: from the wide path that leads to your everlasting destruction.
This is not talking about separation from the appearance of sin. This is talking about the renewing of our hearts because of the Gospel. God teaches separation from the world—separation from the whole political, societal, commercial, and ecclesiastical system that is trying to make itself happy without God.
The vast majority on this planet regardless of where they live and whether industrialized or third world live their daily lives for this physical life only. The aims and ambitions of most unsaved people center around the brief time they spend here in this life. The typical citizen desires to acquire some property, to make a name for himself, and to satisfy his physical appetites.
The separation God speaks of is a separation within you that manifests itself outwardly. It is the leaving behind of your previous temporary, earthly life to embrace ONLY your new spiritual life conforming into Jesus Christ's Image. This separation must occur in your heart and therefore your mind. It is the willful, Spirit empowered abandonment of your old mentality of earthly achievement and people's esteem; I.E. you only live once, make the most of it mentality. It is not a list of do's and don'ts or rules and appearances that never address the new man in the heart.
It is the Godless philosophy, culture and priorities of the world-system from which the disciple of Jesus Christ is to separate.
The whole tenor of the Bible from beginning to end, indicates that the people of God are to be separate from the pride, envy/lust, vanity, and extravagance of this world-system.
Rom.8  For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
Rom.12  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Turn your back on this world and be conformed to the image of His Son (live for all of Christ’s teachings).
TURN YOUR BACK ON THE NATURAL AND LOOK ONLY TO THE SPIRITUAL.
“I am the Lord your God, which have separated you from other people.”
Romans 12:1-2 “I beseech you therefore brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is
that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
1 John 2:15-17 “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. 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.”
ADULTERY AGAINST GOD:
James 4:4 “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”
2 Timothy 3:1-5  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
The words in James 4 are very clear and provide PROOF-POSITIVE that there can be NO SUCH THING as a worldly "christian". Just as there is NO SUCH THING as a Heavenly devil. These are God’s words.
“Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”
Read whole chapter: James Chapter 4
When a man falls into a deep pit, no one ever dreams of jumping down into the pit (alongside him) in order to get him out. Instead, he stays way up at the top, and from there he shows the fallen man a rope or ladder with which he can lift himself out.
When a quart of milk begins to sour, what do you do? Mix it with a quart of sweet milk so that both will be good? No, of course not because we know that will not work. We separate the bad from the good.
Or if a man has a sore leg and gangrene sets in, what do the medical experts do? Cut it
off. They separate the bad from the good. Leave that leg on and it will kill the whole body. God has always been a God of separation. He separated light from darkness, good from evil, the sheep from the goats, the wheat from the tares, the wise from the foolish, and He expects the Christian to be separated from this fake world-system controlled by Satan (according to God's Allowance of it to try men's hearts).
Worldliness is related to what we say, how we spend money, our hobbies, ambitions and interests, our reactions to tragedy and death, etc.
SURRENDER YOUR LIFE to HIM as His Salt of the earth:
Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
In Luke, Chapter 14 our Lord had just finished discussing "counting the costs" of belief in Him. Counting the costs is why many will not accept the Lord, they know that it will transform their lives and they do not want to lose this life here. “Christian” Were you aware of this when you “believed”?
And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.
So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.
Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be seasoned?
It is neither fit for the land, nor yet for the dunghill; but men cast it out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
Our belief is what seasons the earth to maintain God’s interest in it.
Our belief is what preserves the rest of the earth from God’s Wrath.
He wants the surrender of our very beings:
Matthew 16: 24 “If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.”
This means that as far as we are concerned we are in a way written off. We are willing to die for Him, willing to be nothing in this world system FOR HIM! The esteem of other people LOSES ALL INTEREST TO US.
Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
Romans 6:  Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
 For he that is dead is freed from sin.
 Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:
 Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.
 For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.
 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Notice FREED in the passage above:
This is the Liberty God tells us about. FREEDOM FROM THE WORLD SYSTEM. FREEDOM FROM THE BONDAGE OF THE TEMPORARY ILLUSION OF THE WORLD SYSTEM.
FREED FROM THE FLESH AND THE NATURAL MAN:
Discipleship means the surrender of all for all time to Him.
The Lord Jesus wants disciples today. He wants people who have parted company with the world because all that is in the world is lust, envy and the pride of life.
We cannot postpone the decision of absolute surrender to the Lord. He or death may come sooner
than we expect. Whichever takes place first, we will be unable to serve the Lord afterwards.
John 6: I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
Heaven is for praising and glorifying His name, and not for toil and service. The opportunities lost now will never be regained. We are called to live this minute for God’s greater glory.
In 2021, life has never been this fast, this complex, this rushed. All by Satan's clever design.
Very soon, it will be a crime to declare His Name or His Gospel, to post Scripture, to hand out cards; to have Jesus bumper-stickers, to have a website about Jesus and our true reason for existence at all.
The time is short, we must be as Smyrna and Philadelphia believers were, whom traded their lives here for their eternal life there within their hearts. And always remember, "out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks"
Does it sound like too much? Is it too costly? It was not too costly for the One who left all the glory of
Heaven to die on a lonely cross. How can it be too costly for us who are called to follow in His steps?
Matthew 12:  For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
Jonah 2:  Now the LORD had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.
God has set us as the salt of the earth, separating our hearts from Satan’s world system.
However once the salt of the earth runs out, He WILL RECLAIM the earth:
The Revelation of Jesus Christ is about God's Restitution of all things; His reclamation, repair and renewal of His Creation:
A large part of this is God taking vengeance on an unbelieving world! In the beginning, His Salt was savory; However in the end, His Salt of the Earth has lost its savor and is therefore good for nothing courtesy of the Mother of Harlots who has corrupted the earth and all "christian" denominations and sects. COME OUT OF HER MY PEOPLE SAITH THE LORD. The Revelation is the finishing of the Mystery of God and the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. God reclaims His possession from Satan and makes His Creation as He originally intended before sin entered into the world and cursed it.
Remember Revelation is the restitution of all things before the Lord. The Final Separation of His own from the world. Separate yourselves in your heart by the Word of God and His Spirit now before HE DOES IT FOR YOU and you end up in the wrong stack.
Matthew 13:  But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.
 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.
*First, our Lord God will separate His True Spiritual children (wheat) from the frauds (weeds) at the catching away of His remnant. What is commonly referred to as the rapture of the church.
18 And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.
*Then, the frauds or weeds mentioned above will suffer His Wrath on the earth before their eternal destruction. Just like the unbelieving reprobates will.
Matthew 25:  When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:  And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
*Then, after Armageddon (Revelation 16:16), our Lord will establish His physical Kingdom on earth. He will once again separate those whom survive His Wrath (unmarked and marked). The unmarked He will allow entrance (physically alive) into His earthly Kingdom to repopulate the earth under His direct Ruler-ship. Those "Marked" however (marked on their hands or forehead) with the seal of the beast's system (world's system) He will cast alive into the Lake of Fire to suffer for all eternity because they NEVER ACCEPTED THE LOVE OF THE TRUTH (THE ONLY REASON FOR THEIR EXISTENCE IN THE FIRST PLACE).
Separate yourselves from the world's temporary and fake systems designed by Satan as God has clearly commanded all whom follow Him to do now, while it counts:
I John 2:  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.
 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 for ever.
 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
II Corinthians 6: 14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
Separate your heart from the world system and follow our Lord in all things and you will be prepared for the persecutions soon coming to all who NAME HIS NAME. The frauds will not.
