We all do even need to seriously know, differentiate between how God now deals with the wicked, those persons deliberately disobedient to him, he God does not go along with them for sure .. God’s conditional grace of forgiveness even does not extend to everyone..
(Psa 38:2 KJV) For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presseth me sore.
(Psa 42:5 KJV) Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.
(Psa 51:10 KJV) Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
(Psa 139:24 KJV) And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
(Rom 7:18 KJV) For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.
(Rom 7:20 KJV) Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
(1 Tim 1:16 KJV) Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.
(Jer 8:18 KJV) When I would comfort myself against sorrow, my heart is faint in me.
(Hosea 13:9 KJV) O Israel, thou hast destroyed thyself; but in me is thine help.
(Mat 11:6 KJV) And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.
(John 11:25 KJV) Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
(John 15:4 KJV) Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
(John 15:5 KJV) I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
(John 15:6 KJV) If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
(John 15:7 KJV) If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
(John 16:33 KJV) 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.
When a person is young he or she, they are often now lead to believe that a whole world lies beyond them, a world of positive future, great potential and a great future, but that is only until God reveals the reality of all sinful men, that man is always sinful and there basically is nothing good in them. Job himself had such a direct revelation from God.
(Job 3:1 KJV) After this opened Job his mouth, and cursed his day. 2 And Job spake, and said, 3 Let the day perish wherein I was born, and the night in which it was said, There is a man child conceived. 4 Let that day be darkness; let not God regard it from above, neither let the light shine upon it. 5 Let darkness and the shadow of death stain it; let a cloud dwell upon it; let the blackness of the day terrify it. 6 As for that night, let darkness seize upon it; let it not be joined unto the days of the year, let it not come into the number of the months. 7 Lo, let that night be solitary, let no joyful voice come therein. 8 Let them curse it that curse the day, who are ready to raise up their mourning. 9 Let the stars of the twilight thereof be dark; let it look for light, but have none; neither let it see the dawning of the day: 10 Because it shut not up the doors of my mother’s womb, nor hid sorrow from mine eyes. 11 Why died I not from the womb? why did I not give up the ghost when I came out of the belly? 12 Why did the knees prevent me? or why the breasts that I should suck? 13 For now should I have lain still and been quiet, I should have slept: then had I been at rest, 14 With kings and counsellors of the earth, which built desolate places for themselves; 15 Or with princes that had gold, who filled their houses with silver: 16 Or as an hidden untimely birth I had not been; as infants which never saw light. 17 There the wicked cease from troubling; and there the weary be at rest. 18 There the prisoners rest together; they hear not the voice of the oppressor. 19 The small and great are there; and the servant is free from his master. 20 Wherefore is light given to him that is in misery, and life unto the bitter in soul; 21 Which long for death, but it cometh not; and dig for it more than for hid treasures; 22 Which rejoice exceedingly, and are glad, when they can find the grave? 23 Why is light given to a man whose way is hid, and whom God hath hedged in? 24 For my sighing cometh before I eat, and my roarings are poured out like the waters. 25 For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me. 26 I was not in safety, neither had I rest, neither was I quiet; yet trouble came.
Apostle Paul himself saw himself as the chief of sinners.. (1 Tim 1:15 KJV) This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
Jesus also saw all men still as sinners.. (Luke 5:32 KJV) I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
I still today, these days do encounter RATHER NAIVE people who refuse to admit, to see, hear any negatives, especially ANY NEGATIVE REALITIES, the want and accept no criticism, even the same persons who only only want to encounter, hear only about the positives, such as good news.. or the gospel of prosperity… and some preachers wrongfully only feed them such food, babies’ milk..
The grace of God is not a cheap, free licence that will remove the negative personal consequence of any unrepentant, deliberate sins still.. I have really also learned form observing many persons the last many decades that there tends to be no such thing as a little bit pregnant, that to open the barn door even a little bit, and next left unrestrained, undisciplined, unsupervised, realy still means the barn door next it will eventually swing wide open.. and when any person tends to personally allow, start a little acceptable vice, eventually the other even bigger vices do now also tend to grow, develop there as well.. and they too all thus next can be easily discovered, even though the guilty persons will deny this.. even now next the vices of pre-marital sex, sodomy, polygamy, alcoholism, gambling, adultery, drunkenness, bingeing, gluttony, gouging, Self-destructive behaviors, selfishness, indifference, apathy, jealousy, anger, hate, envy, rudeness, irritability or grudges , lust, cussing, cheating , addiction, shoplifting, stealing, tax evasions and even abusive behaviors, pride, lying.
(1 Cor 6:9 KJV) Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
(Mat 7:3 KJV) And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.
Personal Vices unrestrained are not only self-destructive but next also harmful to many others. They are not only limited solely as a result to one’s actions, but rather tend comprises of what is initially inside a person’s heart. (1 Cor 11:31 KJV) For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
Proverbs 6:16-19 clearly also declares: “There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him: (1) haughty eyes, (2) a lying tongue, (3) hands that shed innocent blood, (4) a heart that devises wicked schemes, (5) feet that are quick to rush into evil, (6) a false witness who pours out lies, and (7) a man who stirs up dissension among brothers.”
(Gal 5:19 KJV) Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
(1 John 1:9 KJV) If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
(Eccl 7:20 KJV) For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.
I passed by the field of the sluggard, And by the vineyard of the man lacking in sense; And behold, it was completely overgrown with thistles, Its surface was covered with nettles, And its stone wail was broken down. (Prov. 24:30-31)The unrepentant sins of any person, nation has next still God’s negative corrections.. or punishments. The true believer who sins in his walk with the Lord quickly regrets it, confesses it early, sincerely wishes to never do it again and does seek to appropriate God’s power and grace to avoid it again. The false believer does not renounce his or her sin. The “sin unto death” is deliberate, willful, continuous, unrepentant sin. While God, in His grace, can allow His children to sin without immediately fully punishing them. Next there does comes a point when God will no longer allow any believer to continue in unrepentant sin. When this point is reached, God can sometimes decides to punish a Christian even to the point of taking his or her life. Sins of grieving the holy spirit, human rights abuses can fall into this category.
The Non Christians rather too often deliberately do like to believe in the lie that God does not exists, or that God is dead, for that way hopefully they will not give a personal accountability next for all their sins, wrong doings to God. They are dreaming only. They will give a full account, so will we all. Many a Christian even have also a similar false doctrine towards their sins, false reasons not to not to repent, they call it falsely the dispensation of, the age of grace, and they still lie when they say God will merely next forgive all of their unrepentant sins or deliberate ones. God is not mocked for what one sows will they reap..
The unrepentant sins of any person, nation still even today has next God’s negative corrections.. for God is not to be scoffed at. Galatians 6:7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.
(Rom 5:8 KJV) But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
(Rom 5:19 KJV) For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
(James 4:8 KJV) Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
(Eccl 7:16 KJV) Be not righteous over much; neither make thyself over wise: why shouldest thou destroy thyself?
(Eccl 7:17 KJV) Be not over much wicked, neither be thou foolish: why shouldest thou die before thy time?
(Luke 12:3 KJV) Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.
(Mat 10:27 KJV) What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. 28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
(Mat 18:1 KJV) At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? 2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, 3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. 4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. 6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. 7 Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh! 8 Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire. 9 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire. 10 Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven. 11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.
(Mat 23:11 KJV) But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. (Mat 23:12 KJV) And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.
(Luke 11:49 KJV) Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute:
We all do even need to seriously know, differentiate between how God now deals with the wicked, those persons deliberately disobedient to him, he God does not go along with them for sure .. God’s grace of forgiveness even does not extend to everyone..
and next the righteous those people who put their trust in him.. God is merciful, kind to them, but not all professing Christians now are righteous for sure as well.
Bad people try to do many things.. if others let them do it as well..
Bad pastors, bad elders continue to exist cause likely the congregation is bad too. (Jer 5:31 KJV) The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?
