What fellowship, what communion, what concord, what possible agreement can we have with the unrighteousness of Mammon? - no man can serve two masters; we are instructed by God to come out from among this evil world, to separate, not touching the unclean thing [the corporate construct], not to be *unequally* yoked together; we are instructed to build *together* for an habitation of God through the Spirit, the household of God, fitly framed together as fellow citizens in the Kingdom of God, as sons and daughters in the very Family of God !! -- the physical is reflection of the spiritual, they are lived and experienced together; this evil world-kosmos is a reflection of our spiritual illness !! - the corporate construct offers us the world, freedom of trade, the promise of riches that are just waiting for us to share, "all shall be thine" - they claim possession by their offer, as one cannot offer what one does not own, "for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it" - all that is required is our willing participation, our service; this offer of the world has been made once before:
Matthew 4:8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; 9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. 10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
Luke 4:5 And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. 6 And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. 7 If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. 8 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
