ordered system, something ordered, ordered cosmos. It often is used to refer to the creation. Acts 17:24 God that made the ordered system and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwells not in temples made with hands; Sometimes, it is used to refer to the systems of man. In 1 Peter 3:3, we see kosmos used in reference to the adorning of women--kosmos is the word from which we get the word, cosmetics. It has to do with the entire system or order, in this case, of the person.
God is a God of order. He creates order. The Holy Spirit creates order in the Church and in the mind of every Christ-follower.
Satan creates disorder. The worldly systems and the extra-biblical orders that have crept into the Church are orders that are disorder to God. These orders are disgusting to God. God is a God of order and cannot allow man-made orders (which are disorders) to continue. The word, Church, means "called out." We have been called out of the Babylon of disorders and into God's great Kingdom order.
