This Present Age is Evil

leave a comment »

We are liable to forget what the Scripture tells us about this present earthly age in which we live:

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to deliver us from the present evil age (Gal.1:3-4)

Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil (Eph.5:15-16)

Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm (Eph.6:11-13)

Do all things without grumbling or disputing;  so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation (Phil.2:14-15).

The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God (2 Cor.4:4)

This would sober us against our current coziness with this world, of which am far too familiar, and remind us of the fight of faith in which we must engage.
