Beloved, God your loving Father manifested His agape love to saints of all ages and you in particular by sounding several warnings to help them and you in particular to.  avert the subtle tireless snares of the devil.
You must never ever forget that this present world is full of evil and wickedness. See it yourself.

Galatians 1:4  Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:

1Jo 5:19  And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.

It is for this reason why the saints of God especially you are seriously warned  not to love the world and it’s adornments, which are liken to  other gods competing with the love of your loving Father in heaven..

1Jo 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 for ever.

Beloved the Bible reveals the devil as the old serpent who deceived the whole world.

Revelation 12:9  And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

He has not changed and until he will be sent to the lake of fire at the end of time, he and his cohorts can not change. See what the Bible says.

Jer 13:23  Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil

In the same way satan made Esau to loose his enviable birthright, so he is still using his devilish wisdom to subtly make the worldlings and carefree nominal churchgoers to exchange their eternal well-being on the altar of transient ephemeral.

Gen 25:29 — 34  And Jacob sod pottage: and Esau came from the field, and he was faint: And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his name called Edom. Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright. Also Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me? So Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob. Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentiles; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: thus Esau despised his birthright.

Beloved for you in particular not to fall a victim of these  deceptive acts of the devil, give tireless attention to these warnings. See them.

2Co 2:11  Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.

Eph 6:11  Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

1 Peter 5:8  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

1Co 10:12 — 13 Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall. There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

Matthew 16:26  For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

Heb 12:15 — Heb 12:17  Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled; Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright. For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears.

Revelation 2:25  But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.

Beloved when you conscientiously  heed these warnings, you will avoid trading your eternal well-being with these three satanic snares.
LUST OF THE FLESH, LUST OF THE EYES AND PRIDE OF LIFE. See how the following people of old and Lucifer fell a victim and avert it. The loss of these people were quantum and indescribable.
it shall not be your portion in Jesus name.
1. Lust of the eyes: Adam and Eve.

Gen 3:1 — 7  Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? The woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. Also the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

See their irreplaceable loss.

Gen 3:23 — 24 Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

2. David lust of the flesh.

2Sa 11:2 — 4  And it came to pass in an eveningtide, that David arose from off his bed, and walked upon the roof of the king’s house: and from the roof he saw a woman washing herself; and the woman was very beautiful to look upon. Also David sent and enquired after the woman. One said, Is not this Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite? David sent messengers, and took her; and she came in unto him, and he lay with her; for she was purified from her uncleanness: and she returned unto her house.

See the  shameful and painful punishment of David from God  through Absalom his son.

2Sa 12:9 — 12 Wherefore  hast thou despised the commandment of the Lord, to do evil in his sight? thou hast killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword, and hast taken his wife to be thy wife, and hast slain him with the sword of the children of Ammon. Now therefore the sword shall never depart from thine house; because thou hast despised me, and hast taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be thy wife. Thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will raise up evil against thee out of thine own house, and I will take thy wives before thine eyes, and give them unto thy neighbour, and he shall lie with thy wives in the sight of this sun. For thou didst it secretly: but I will do this thing before all Israel, and before the sun.

3. Pride of life, Lucifer

Isa 14:12 — 15   How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!  For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God:  I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:  I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

See his eternal punishment.

Revelation 12:9  And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Matthew 25:41  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:

Beloved let your love for God be supreme and do not  love any other god, described as lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes and pride of life.
The good Lord shall help you in particular in Jesus name.
Dearly Beloved, Jesus Christ our Lord and savior is your Redeemer and Master and Lord.

John 13:13  Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.

When you reckon Him as your loving Master, then it will help you to avert falling into the snares of satan and loving other gods apart from your loving Father in heaven.

Matthew 6:24  No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Dearly beloved when your love and affection are focused on Jesus and Jesus alone, then it will be easier for you in particular not to love the gods of this evil world.
See the three of them: LUST OF THE FLESH, LUST OF THE EYES AND PRIDE OF LIFE.

1Jo 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 for ever.

Jesus Christ your loving Master gave  you admonitions  to strengthen you to avert the snares of satan coming through these adornments. See them:

Matthew 6:33  But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Matthew 16:26  For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

Luk 21:34 — 36  And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Dearly beloved do everything to avert the snares,  two foremost believers of old fell into, because they did not attach importance to the admonitions of Christ. See them. The two of them presently were damned and languishing in hell.
This shall not be your portion. Please learn from their misfortunes and don’t trade your eternal well-being with temporal and transient ephemeral.
1. Judas apostle and treasurer of Christ. Thirty pieces of silver.

Mat 26:14 — 16  Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests, And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver. And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.

 2. Demas a co labourer with Paul. Loved  the present evil world and turned back from following  God and  serving  the Lord.

2 Timothy 4:10  For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia.

Phm 1:24  Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my fellowlabourers.

Always remember never ever gain anything and everything at the expense of your precious undying soul.  The good Lord shall help you in particular in Jesus name.

Matthew 16:26  For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

Friend, you shall not miss the dawning rapture in Jesus name. Please heed the following warnings.
1. Don’t love other gods of this evil world at the expense of your loving Father in heaven.

1Jo 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 for ever.

2. Avoid the besetting sins of Adam and Eve, Achan, David, Judas, Demas, Lucifer etc . But keep on looking  on to  Jesus and follow His exemplary lifestyle till He comes in the  air during the imminent rapture.

Heb 12:1 — 2 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

 3. Please put your body under , don’t allow them to damn your precious undying soul. Your soul shall not be damned in Jesus name.

Isa 33:15 — 17  He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly;he that despiseth the gain of oppressions,that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil; He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.  Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off.

Rom 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 Corinthians 9:27  But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
