The Earth is often times interchanged with the World: one must consider the context ed in which they are employed. The season that we are now in, it is imperative, that Believers know the difference.
The Earth is the globe: all of the land mass, and water(under the authority of gravity.Gen.1:6,7). It was created by the LORD to be inhabited(Is.45:18).
Gen.1:2 And the Earth was ❌ without form.
And the Earth -became- ✔without form. *Something happened!
The World, beginning in Psalms is speaking quite often about the world of chaos!×6 The World of Satan, that was "beguiled" from Adam and Eve.
Immanuel-Christ-Jesus didn't disagree with Satan in Matt.4:8,9 when Satan pronounced that It was the king of the World!×6
World is connected to the "works of the flesh" in Gal. 5:19-21; Rom.1:18-32, and 2Pet3:10:11.
The Apostle Paul in Ephes. 6:12 For we wrestle not against -flesh- and blood(the World), but against principalities, powers, rulers of darkness, spiritual wickedness in high places.
Psa.37:29 The righteous shall inherit the Earth.
Prov.10:30 The righteous shall never be removed: the wicked shall not inhabit the Earth.
See, and know the difference.👣
