Beloved, I rejoice so much because of you. This is because at this perilous time, you are behaving very very wisely.
But then, their is just one principal attitude and lifestyle that validate your being conscientiously wise. It is your prized thoughtfulness of your latter end.
This is the singular thing that differentiate a Bible based believer and a nominal churchgoer.

Deuteronomy 32:29  O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!

Proverbs 19:20 Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.

 Beloved, I bessech you with all my heart to painstakingly and sincerely examine yourself on this crucial issue of not loving the world.
This is the reason why ninety nine percent of the global church of Christ are not ready and it could cost them their eternal well-being. Yours Shall be an exclusion as you determinedly address this issue.

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, there is something about your loving Father in heaven that will never ever change from eternity past and the present time and eternity future.
He remains a very jealous God and we never ever share His glory with any being especially satan. See it yourself

Exodus 34:14  For thou shalt worship no other god: for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:

Isaiah 42:8  I am the Lord: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.

Beloved, the lifestyle of sincere and wise believers like you is  to love God as commanded in the scriptures. See it yourself.

Deu 6:4 — 5  Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

Deu 10:12  And now, Israel, what doth the Lord thy God require of thee, but to fear the Lord thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the Lord thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul,

Mat 22:36 — 38  Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment.

Beloved, the  moment anyone and everyone love anything more than God. That thing no matter what it’s contributing to, in your life has become an idol and such a person has become an idol worshipper.
See what the Bible says about idol’s.

1Jo 5:21  Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.

Colossians 3:5  Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:

Beloved ninety nine percent of believers globally are presently guilty of these two things. Please don’t be presumptuous. Sincerely check up if you are not involved. See it yourself.
1. Weighed on the scale of God and you are found wanting.of loving  something more than God. You shall discover it as you read on .

Dan 5:27  tekel – Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.

2. You might have lost your first love for God to gain a transient ephemeral. And you need to repent urgently.

Rev 2:4 — 5  Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

2Ti 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.

Beloved, because you are a wise person who is conscientiously thoughtful about your latter end, the blessed Holy Spirit says you should examine yourself and check up whether you are not guilty of loving something more than God, referred to as the world or idol or another god.

2 Corinthians 13:5  Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

NOW SEE WHAT THE BIBLE CALLS THE WORLD, THAT MULTITUDE OF BELIEVERS LOVE MORE THAN GOD AND SHALL JEOPARDIZE THEIR ETERNAL WELL-BEING.
Yours Shall be excluded in Jesus name.
See as the Bible spells the world and described it.
W: worship of satan to gain anything and everything in the world.

Luk 4:5 — 7  And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.

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?

O: occupation, job, working like Balaam to love wages of unrighteousness.. Doing ungodly practices, giving bribe, sleeping with people in authority , godfatherism  etc.  To keep your job or occupation. Balaam.

2 Peter 2:15  Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;

Revelation 2:14  But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.

R: revelling, banqueting like Esau and selling your birthright. 

1Pe 4:3 — 4  For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries: Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:

Heb 12:16 — 17  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.

L: lusting after evil things  and looking back to abominable things.
Lot’s wife, Demas , mixed multitude among the children of Israel when they left Egypt.

1 Corinthians 10:6  Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.

Genesis 19:26  But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.

Luk 17:32  Remember Lot’s wife.

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.

D: deception and decamping from the narrow way to acquire  transient, temporal ephemeral. Judas

Mat 26:14 — Mat 26:16 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.

Jn 12:4 — 6  Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, which should betray him, Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor? This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.

Beloved as God weighs you on the world , as  described above, you must not be found guilty.
Those that are guilty have already jeopardize their eternal well-being. I am persuaded you shall not be guilty. But just in case you are. Repent now, tomorrow might be too late.
Dearly beloved, Jesus Christ our Lord and savior gave believers of all ages and you in particular an example of what to do to avert loving the world.
This is because loving the world more than God the Father is idolatry and damnable. You shall not be damned in Jesus name.

Mat 4:8 — 10  Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

 Just follow His good example and you will not be guilty of loving the world more than your loving Father in heaven.

1 Peter 2:21  For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:

Following His  example will help you to obey this commandment.

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.

 In addition He exhorted sincere believers like you. Once you heed the exhortations, you can not fall into the snare of satan. You shall not fall in Jesus name.
1. Give God and biblical righteousness prominence in your life.

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

2.  Never ever gain anything and everything no matter their worth at the expense of your precious undying soul.

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?

3. Avoid serving God and mammon.

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.

The good Lord shall help you in particular in Jesus name.
Friend, keep the charge of not loving another god and your earnest desire to be part of the dawning rapture shall be realised in Jesus name.

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.

Friend, how will you do it?  Don’t gain anything at the expense of your soul and don’t trade your birthright for transient ephemeral.

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 12:16 — 17  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.

 In addition always give prominence to eternal things in every decision you are taking till Christ comes.

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

Col 3:1 — 4  If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

The grace of God I shall be sufficient for you in particular in Jesus name.

2 Corinthians 9:8  And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:
