7 In [en] the which [hos] ye [humeis] also [kai] walked [peripateo] some time, [pote] when [hote] ye lived [zao] in [en] them. [autos]KJV-Interlinear
7 and in them you also once
walked, when you were living in them. NASB
You can view this verse
from two angles.The first is that you
live among the unrighteousness's due to its existence all around you in the
world.And second, is that you were, or
are, an active participant in the unrighteousness s that exist in the world.
to a wide variety of evils which originate from the sin nature.
The sin nature has an
area of strength which is human good, or good produced from the energy of the
flesh or the sin nature.Also, the sin nature
has an area of weakness which include sins that range
from lasciviousness s to asceticism s.
Most of you, I would presume,
are not serial killers, or habitual burglars, or drug users, or whatever it is
that you associate crime or sin or unrighteousness, with.
And although these
things do contribute to the evils of the world, they are by far in the minority
as far as unrighteousness goes.
The worst examples of
unrighteousness and by far the most prevalent are not petty crimes, but
government policies, social lifestyles, public attitudes, popular beliefs in
society, all of these things that depart from doctrinal teachings such as divine
establishment principles, the definition of life, social morality, do-gooder
approaches to life, and so forth.All of
these things can only stand when forced onto society.
Remember that lie based
policies have no foundation on which to stand, therefore they must be held up
by artificial foundations of legislation, intimidation, regulation or controls
of one sort or another, violence, and so forth.Man has to invent his policies and then invent justifications for
them.And sooner or later, invent exceptions
to the rules that don t work, and exceptions to the exceptions.
And when things simply
don t work, they are tried all over again, and called new, or change, in order
to gain the support of a na ve public.Which public is na ve, only because they are actively engaged in their
lifestyles of unrighteousness.
And not only do you live
within this world, but you can look in the mirror, and see full well that you
were an active participant, and perhaps still are, in the unrighteousness s of
Therefore, the wrath of
fury, which is already on its way, as we saw in the previous verse, is at least
in part, because of you.
God is the author of
good.This world is constantly cruising
through difficulties, not because of Gods policies, but because people ignore them.

In the Millennium,
prosperity will be unequalled in history, and it will last for the entire
one-thousand years. But, at its end, Satan will be released and rebellion will
ruin everything again.
Today we are all
experiencing economic hardships, and it will either continue or change
depending on the attitudes of the general public.Right now the attitude is
anti-scripture.But no matter how the
views of the vast majority of society, go, God has a plan for your specific
God can and will carry
your burden through any and all worldly or personal circumstances.All you need do is be certain that you are in
compliance with Gods will, and not the will of the
rest of the world.
Now is the time to post a prayer.

Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
