33 Bible Verses about World

1 John 2:15-18 ESV / 47 helpful votes

And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever. Children, it is the last hour, and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come. Therefore we know that it is the last hour.
