Romans 4:5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Paraphrase^ from: "But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;"
Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you..../ If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you....
I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.....
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places...
Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.....
Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error....
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world...

Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you....

Jas.4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God
Without loyalty their can be no friendship. When things go against you a friend will be by your side. "Know your friends from your acquaintances"- Family. Proverbs 27:6 Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful. ("...a friend of the world is the enemy of God.") Jn.17:21-22 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: Jn.15:15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. ^1Love
Recently came to a question "why do people say be still and know that I am G-d"? I dont think its hard to understand but perhaps the question can be intellectually stimulating.
I say its because if your about your own aims and the ways of the World (concerns of this life) you cant really focuss on G-D. Too many people are trying to claim to represent G-D in Their own efforts and agenda. Ps.46:10 "be still"- Desist; cease your efforts. The verse is "Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth." exhaulted amoung the heathan and in the earth"- It may seem that the evil always get ahead but If you watch you will see that G-D makes himself known eventually even in their midst (even if its through thier downfall). In the NT Christians are given a concept of dyin of self and be filled with the Holy Spirit. Become a new creature that is one with G-D (seeking His Will). Its much like a debate where you have stubburn people trying to prove how much they know not willing to listen only wanting to be heard (recognized). This doesnt work with G-D. You cant serve G-D and Mammon. Shabbat is coming! His people have peace and rest everyday (even in the midst of tribulation), and yet we also work to provide for ourselves. Shabbat stresses the importance of setting time aside to be still and know that Yah is G-D. We are more than able to rest from our works one day out of the week and still know that G-D provides. There are many distractions in the world. I see Is.5:8 basically on the same subject. "8 Woe unto them that join house to house, that lay field to field, till there be no place, that they may be placed alone in the midst of the earth!" If you have ever been in a ghetto you know that when you live in close quarters with others and there is no relative place of esacpe that you begin to be affected by your surrounding in a negative way. sometimes life can be so negative that you need to stop and count your blessings instead of the negatives, Think good thoughts. Thats why people also say any time in the Word of G-D is time well spent.
