12 Verses On God’s Hatred for Evil People — Churches & K-LOVE are out of BALANCE, spoonfeeding only God’s “GOODNESS” side. Paul said we must also consider God’s “SEVERITY” side so we’ll continue in God’s goodness, so we won’t also be cut off!

I modified this list from a pastor who thinks because God hates some evil people (and David sometimes did in the old covenant) that we should also hate evil people. Though, in the new covenant, Jesus said we are to love our enemies. Mt. 5:43-45:

“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor, and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who mistreat you and persecute you, that you may be children of your Father who is in heaven.”

And John warns in 1 Jn. 3:15:

Whoever hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life remaining in him.

I decided to post this because the fear of the Lord is rarely being taught correctly. Many say the God of the Old and New Testaments are different, because Jesus seemed like such a nice guy while on earth (except when he whipped the money changers). But Jesus was mainly living like you and I are supposed to, being led by the Spirit, having emptied Himself (Php. 2). We’re supposed to walk like Jesus walked. Jesus forgave those who crucified him, just like Stephen forgave those who stoned him to death.

I added some words from Jesus in his current, exalted state that show how much Jesus means business! Sexual immorality is a big deal to Jesus! The Bible emphasizes this a lot, and so should we, to not fall into this seductive trap.

Paul taught the goodness and severity of God in balance in Romans 11:

Don’t be conceited, but fear; for if God didn’t spare the natural branches [Jews], neither will he spare you. See then the goodness and severity of God. Toward those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in his goodness; otherwise you also will be cut off.

The church is currently out of balance, by only being taught one side of God’s character, His ‘goodness’ side. We need a reality check, so we’ll make sure we safely stay within God’s goodness side, so we’ll make sure we’re in the Son, being salt and light, and not be cut off.

12 Verses On God’s Hatred for Evil People

Psalm 5:5-6 The arrogant shall not stand in your sight. You hate all workers of iniquity. You will destroy those who speak lies. Yahweh abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.

Psalm 11:5 Yahweh examines the righteous, but the wicked and him who loves violence his soul hates.

Psalm 53:5 There were they in great fear, where no fear was: for God hath scattered the bones of him that encampeth against thee: thou hast put them to shame, because God hath despised them.

Leviticus 20:23 You shall not walk in the customs of the nation, which I am casting out before you: for they did all these things, and therefore I abhorred them.

Leviticus 26:27-30″‘If you in spite of this won’t listen to me, but walk contrary to me; then I will walk contrary to you in wrath; and I also will chastise you seven times for your sins. You will eat the flesh of your sons, and you will eat the flesh of your daughters. I will destroy your high places, and cut down your incense altars, and cast your dead bodies upon the bodies of your idols; and my soul will abhor you.

Deuteronomy 32:19 And when the LORD saw it, he abhorred them, because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters.

Proverbs 6:16-19 There are six things which Yahweh hates; yes, seven which are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood; a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are swift in running to mischief, a false witness who utters lies, and he who sows discord among brothers.

Proverbs 22:14 The mouth of strange women [adulteress] is a deep pit: he that is abhorred of the LORD shall fall therein.

Zechariah 11:8 Three shepherds also I cut off in one month; and my soul lothed them, and their soul also abhorred me.

Hosea 9:15 “All their wickedness is in Gilgal; for there I hated them. Because of the wickedness of their deeds I will drive them out of my house! I will love them no more. All their princes are rebels.

Malachi 1:2-3 I have loved you, saith the LORD. Yet ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? Was not Esau Jacob’s brother? saith the LORD: yet I loved Jacob, And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness.

Romans 9:13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.

* * *

Jesus in Revelation 2:18-23 doesn’t actually mention the word hate, but remember how God struck Ananias and Sapphira dead in the New Testament!

“To the angel of the assembly in Thyatira write: “The Son of God, who has his eyes like a flame of fire, and his feet are like burnished brass, says these things:

“I know your works, your love, faith, service, patient endurance, and that your last works are more than the first. But I have this against you, that you tolerate your woman, Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess. She teaches and seduces my servants to commit sexual immorality, and to eat things sacrificed to idols. I gave her time to repent, but she refuses to repent of her sexual immorality.

Behold, I will throw her into a bed, and those who commit adultery with her into great oppression, unless they repent of her works. I will kill her children with Death, and all the assemblies will know that I am he who searches the minds and hearts. I will give to each one of you according to your deeds.

[Lust Freedom!] As Cautiously as Folding Our Own Parachute — “We ought to think out each step with the same kind of rationale and determination that a man uses when he folds his own parachute. Small, careful decisions can save his life. 5 minutes of pleasure earned Esau the loss of a lifetime of blessing and the enmity of God. Is it worth it?”

A Facebook friend, Victoria Christine Bingham, wrote these wise words.

She writes this excellent, parachute folding analogy:

I was in a jump club in college. I witnessed the care with which jumpers folded their chutes — generally with more precision and concern than a lot of us make minute by minute [in our] choices.

I think the greatest doctrinal tragedy is the idea of ‘once saved always saved.’ It’s not Biblical; else, why would satan work so hard to lead Christians astray, if he couldn’t impact their salvation?

A vast quantity of scriptures teach Christians how to live AFTER they are saved, so that they may hold fast to that which they have. How many men in the churches, who think they can ‘get away’ with the sin of pornography because of this satanic lie; are on a fast track to a hellish eternity?

* * *

Before he wrote his plaintive confession in Psalm 51, David used his eyes amiss. The consequences of that ‘benign’ sin, looking on a naked woman who was not his wife, led to a great deal of tragedy in David’s life. By the time he wrote Psalm 101:3, David had learned that there is no such thing as a harmless or benign sin, and wrote; “I will lead NO evil before my eyes.”

Jesus counseled that our acts begin with our thoughts. If we can [make] our thoughts captive, our acts will follow. Each act in our lives is a step that we take, either towards the narrow gate or away from it. The trajectory of steps over the course of a lifetime will determine our ultimate destination.

We ought to think out each step with the same kind of rationale and determination that a man uses when he folds his own parachute. Small, careful decisions can save his life.

5 minutes of pleasure earned Esau the loss of a lifetime of blessing and the enmity of God. Is it worth it?

Stop Saying “God Knows My Heart” to Excuse Sin

Wes [McAdams] — January 28, 2015

When confronted with their sins, it’s not uncommon to hear people say, “Yeah, but God knows my heart.” I usually take this to mean, “What I’m doing might be wrong, but in my heart, I’m a good person. God knows that. So I don’t think He will hold me accountable for my actions.” These folks obviously believe in God and believe in sin, but they believe that having a “good heart” is justification for their sin. God says that’s not true.

Your Sins Proceed from Your Heart

According to Jesus, no one sins in spite of having a clean heart. On the contrary, our sins are evidence of the impurity of our heart. Jesus said, “What comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heartout of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander” (Matthew 15:18-19).

You can’t use profanity and – when someone calls you on it – say, “Well, God knows my heart.” Your heart is the place from which that profanity came. …

You don’t sin in spite of having a clean heart; you sin because there is something wrong in your heart.

Your Heart is Hidden from Man, but Not from God

The realization that God knows our hearts should humble us to repent, not embolden us to sin. You can hide your heart from the world. You can appear righteous and godly to others, even if your heart is rotten to the core, but God knows the truth. He sees your heart. …

All of this should teach us that our heart is not better than our life….

So I beg you to realize that God will hold you accountable for the sins of your mouth, the sins of your hands, and the sins of your heart unless you repent and allow Him to wash you clean in the blood of Jesus Christ:

“Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Be wretched and mourn and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you” (James 4:8-10).

Paul Furlong: How Romans 7 is unbiblically used to justify sinning

I just recently discovered Paul Furlong on Facebook, and thought I’d share this great teaching here too. Paul the apostle actually did work out his own salvation with fear and trembling, and was able to say:

“Herein I also practice ALWAYS having a conscience void of offense toward God and men.” (Acts 24:16)

This is my Facebook page if anyone is interested: facebook.com/onecanhappen

From: Paul Furlong’s 6/29/15  Facebook post

Another scripture [Romans 7] totally and shamefully misquoted showing the severe ignorance of the knowledge of God and His Word! This scripture is used to say Paul lives a full sinful life and any sin he committed is not really him ???? To make excuses for their own sin….Yet this contradicts all Paul’s previous and following teaching and the whole Bibles teaching !!

Romans 7:18-20 “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. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. “

Yet Paul makes it very clear he is referring to those “under the law” and his old life prior to new life in grace !!

Romans 7:1 “Know ye not, brethren, for I speak to them that know the law, how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth? “

Paul again referring “when” we were …. PAST not present

Romans 7:5 “For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death. “

Now paul shows under law we are dead and have no hope but under (Christ) grace we are free.

If we go back to the law we are condemned by sin but if we walk according to the spirit we are empowered unto holiness and the control of sin is destroyed ….

Romans 8:3-5 “For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.”

Again Paul clarifies the new life in God other than under the law sets us free from sin…

Romans 8:8-9, 12-13 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. ….Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. (He does not belong to God) Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. “

Then in case we don’t get it Paul really makes it clear … Stop sinning [and] get control of your sinful fleshly behavior or die!!

Romans 8:8-9, 12-13 “So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. “

Today, one can easily say that porn has become the norm, and that is even among churchgoers.

A recent survey discovered that 64% of Christian men admit that they view pornography at least monthly. That percentage goes up to 77% when considering just Millennials, those who are 18-30 years old. Among Millennials, 36% say they view porn daily.

The same survey looked at women. Only 13% of Christian women said they had never looked at porn. 33% said they view porn at least a few times a year, and 15% said they view it at least once a month.
