|1 John 2:17 |
17 And the world passes away and disappears, along with its desires and lusts;3 but he who does the will of God remains forever.
3 the world passes away and disappears, along with its desires and lusts; So the world with its lusts and passions disappear together, crucified by the aid of the Spirit. After we are purified, Christ returns to establish his Kingdom within us, and the world as we know it disappears. We enter a different dimension — paradise or the Kingdom of Heaven. Although we are still physically on earth, we no longer see by natural light. We see by the light of God, in his marvelous light; we see through his eyes, and see in the spiritual dimension.
