What is the standard of the world?
The world in the above verse is not only referring to the universe but also to ungodly people who are alienated from God.
This world has a set pattern of living that is contrary to the standard of God. The world contains many glorious kingdoms, which Satan seems to control and can give to whoever worship him as noted when he tempted Christ with it.
But, within this world are wickedness, iniquity and all manner of evil. In this world there are deceitfullnes of riches.
The world is filled with pride, lust of the flesh and eyes.
I thank the Lord that the bread of heaven has come down to give life to this world. This bread is the light of the world – the Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore, though we live in this world we are not of the world because Christ is not from this world and He has overcome the world.
These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)
And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever. (1 John 2:17)
Isaiah 13; Matthew 4; 13; John 6:33; 8:12; 1 John 2

Beverley has been serving the Lord since she was a child. At an early age, she recognized that God had a special plan for her life, but it was not until in her adulthood that she surrendered her total life to God and accepted the mandate that God placed on her life. The Lord called her into His Kingdom to be an encourager, intercessor, teacher, scribe, priest, and to proclaim the Word of God.
Since then, Beverly has established a blog to teach us to become the oil and wine. The oil and wine are purified and mature products, which is the advanced level that the Lord expected of us.
In 2017, Beverley published her first book, Harm Not The Oil And Wine. In it, she described her trials and how God helped her to overcome them, and to live more victoriously. The book also exposed the enemy of our souls with detailed information about his past defeats and future extinction.
Wright spents most of her time studying the Bible to know the truth of God’s Word. She believes that only God’s truth can expose the deception of the enemy, and uproot and tear down spiritual strongholds.
You can learn more about Beverley’s life and testimony on her website becomingtheoilandwine.com.
You can also find her on Facebook and Google+ under the name of her blog, and on Twitter as @Theoilandwine.
