“Do not love the world [of sin that opposes God and His precepts], nor the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world—the lust and sensual craving of the flesh and the lust and longing of the eyes and the boastful pride of life [pretentious confidence in one’s resources or in the stability of earthly things]—these do not come from the Father, but are from the world. 17 The world is passing away, and with it its lusts [the shameful pursuits and ungodly longings]; but the one who does the will of God and carries out His purposes lives forever. 1 John 2:15-17
SO HOW DO WE KNOW THE WILL OF GOD>?
The Bible, Hebrews 11, Faith or Fear (as both the same) brings to pass what you have faith or fear for. Our Creator God holds all creation together by HIS faith. It is HIS faith that holds the electron to the neutron and proton in an atom as the electron travels far to fast to be held otherwise. Our Creator God is intent in teaching us how to live by faith as well, if we will allow HIM to. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. Want more faith, spend more time learning about faith from the Prophets of God. Be blessed in your quest and be it unto you according to your faith IN THE WORD OF GOD. (It is in the context that we find His Truth.)
We are now living in a world full of fear, and like Job noted in Job: ““For the thing which I greatly fear comes upon me, And that of which I am afraid has come upon me. “I am not at ease, nor am I quiet, And I am not at rest, and yet trouble still comes [upon me].” (In other words Job was doing all he knew to do to prevent it in fear but it happened anyway, Job 3:25.)

So not much faith for our future in the World’s News Today
So if we are interested in seeing a move of the Holy Spirit it will be because we fill our hearts and minds with positive faith as Jesus Taught and not as the world or the so called church teaches today, 2 Tim. 3:5. So lets take time here to consider what Christ Jesus taught. There are 598 verses of scripture in the Holy Bible on Faith, so plenty of context and 418 of them in the New Testament. So let us consider a few of what Jesus taught: When we have it right, we will see Jesus in His great love healing the sick, raising the dead and casting out demons as usual.
“For I also am a man subject to authority [of a higher rank], with soldiers subject to me; and I say to one, ‘Go!’ and he goes, and to another, ‘Come!’ and he comes, and to my slave, ‘Do this!’ and he does it.” 10 When Jesus heard this, He was amazed and said to those who were following Him, “I tell you truthfully, I have not found such great faith [as this] with anyone in Israel. 11 I say to you that many [Gentiles] will come from east and west, and will sit down [to feast at the table, and enjoy God’s promises] with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven [because they accepted Me as Lord], Matt. 8:9-11. Read the whole account from Matt.8:5,
“But Jesus turning and seeing her said, “Take courage, daughter; your [personal trust and confident] faith [in Me] has made you well.” And at once the woman was [completely] healed.”
“And he who does not take his cross [expressing a willingness to endure whatever may come] and follow Me [believing in Me, conforming to My example in living and, if need be, suffering or perhaps dying because of faith in Me] is not worthy of Me.” Matt. 10:38, Matt. 16:24
“Then Jesus answered her, “Woman, your faith [your personal trust and confidence in My power] is great; it will be done for you as you wish.” And her daughter was healed from that moment.”
“He answered, “Because of your little faith [your lack of trust and confidence in the power of God]; for I assure you and most solemnly say to you, if you have [living] faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and [if it is God’s will] it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.” Matt.17:20
“So be alert [give strict attention, be cautious and active in faith], for you do not know which day [whether near or far] your Lord is coming.” Matt. 24:42
“His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful and trustworthy over a little, I will put you in charge of many things; share in the joy of your master.’
“Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses]. 2 For by this [kind of] faith the [a] men of old gained [divine] approval. By faith [that is, with an inherent trust and enduring confidence in the power, wisdom and goodness of God ] we understand that the worlds (universe, ages) were framed and created [formed, put in order, and equipped for their intended purpose] by the Word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible. Heb. 11:1-3
