While I’m in this contraption that describes “experience” (albeit vanity) , you might be someone in the contraption that describes “status”. That…
On the throne of this world is a sight so pleasing, her nature is so captivating I desire no escape. The friend of “Experience” and “Status” is “Beauty”—lust of the eyes.
All three mechanisms are in place, but Me and You must work on our Friend for the kingdom of this world to function how we want it to, to fully convert this world’s clock to our purpose and pleasure as each mechanism or gear rotates to the future of our eternal glory.
1 John 2:15-17
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. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
Mine and your heart beats to impress upon our Friend, “We will ascend into heaven, we will exalt our throne above the stars of God; we will also sit on the mount of the congregation On the farthest sides of the north; we will ascend above the heights of the clouds, and will be like the Most High” (Isaiah 14:13-14). Beauty will not resist the fruit of these words, “You surely will not die. [Genesis 3:4]; eat and experience the flavor of wisdom, attain the knowledge of God, and lets produce irresistible love for the purpose of life-everlasting.”
Look at and see the nature you’re of, the power you have, and radiance to behold. No imaginative beauty to the eyes of the conscious can compare to your form and image. Too many words exhaust the life-span of any creature willing to take on the description of you.
What features of this world do you see attractive? Why are those features attractive to your eyes? Does the attraction tempt you to commit sin? Do you lust after what you see with your eyes?
