15 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 desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions–is not from the Father but is from the world. 17 And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever. 18 Children, it is the last hour, and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come. Therefore we know that it is the last hour. 19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us. But they went out, that it might become plain that they all are not of us. (1 John 2:15-19)
The world system is of the Antichrist. It is is alive and well throughout the world and very prevalent in the Church. A good friend sent me the link to a very good sermon on this from 1 John 2:15-19. Follow it here. I pray that it blesses you as it did me. Examine yourselves my brethren.
