Not of the World (by Fenny West)

In the World, but Not of the World

In the World, but not of the World 

In the World but Not of the World

Because we are citizens of heaven. 

We hail from above, born of the Word. 

We’re like aliens here, pilgrims, strangers. 

We look for a city Whose builder is God. 

We belong to Mount Zion- the heavenly Jerusalem 

We’re here in training for reigning as Kings. 

And before we go, we shall Reign with Him. 

In a twinkling of an eye, He will descend. 

At the trumpet call, the Lord will come. 

Those dead in Him will rise first. 

Those alive in Him will them join them. 

He will come for those awaiting His coming-

Those who are separated from the World. 

Only those who are born again will be there. 

You can be there too but the choice is yours. 

But you have to make your reservation. 

Unless you make your booking, you can’t be there. 

Behold, I stand at your door and knock. 

Behold, I stand at your door and I call. 

Only you can open for Me to come in. 

I am the Prince of Peace, come with peace. 

My peace is not of this world but of heaven. 

I have come with the peace of God. 

This peace transcends all understanding. 

This peace is like a river that’s burst its banks. 

This peace gives you an assurance of heaven. 

This call is for a relationship with God. 

It is not a call to join a church or religion. 

It a call to be joined to the Church, My Body. 

My sheep hear my voice and come to Me. 

I am the Good Shepherd and I died for You. 

I am the Lamb slain before the world began. 

On Calvary’s cross, I died that you might live.

On the third day, I rose to give You a New Life. 

I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. 

No one comes to the Father except through Me. 

I am the One Mediator between God and man. 

I am the bridge that every man crosses to God. 

The choice is in your hands. 

Make the right choice. 

As many as receive Me

I give the privilege and right

To become children of God. 

If anyone is in Christ, he is a New Creation. 

The old goes and the New comes. 

If anyone lets Me in, I will take My rightful place. 

Their name will be written in the Book of Life. 

They will become citizens of heaven. 

In the world but not of this world

 

 

2     And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Ro12:2

14   I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.John17:14

4     You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

5     They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them.

12   Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.

13   These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.1Cor2:12-13

6     We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.1John4:4-6

5     For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus,

1Tim2:5

17   Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new cr

eation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.2Cor5:17

6     Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.John14:6

20   For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, Phil3:20
