6:16-19- "These six things doth
the LORD hate: yea, seven are an
abomination unto him. A proud look, A lying tongue, and
hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked
imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief. A false
witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren".
A proud look.
Pride is an attribute of the devil. Satan said I
will be like the most high God! I will ascend up to the sides of the
north where God's throne is. Isaiah 14:12- "How art thou fallen from heaven, O
Lucifer, son of the morning...For thou hast said in thine heart, I will
ascend into heaven, I will
exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount
of the congregation, in the sides of the north. I will ascend above the
heights of the clouds; I will be like the most high". Satan
wanted to take over God's domain and
that pride is what caused the downfall of Satan and all the angels who
followed him. The bible declares that a proud look cometh before
Proverbs 16:18- "Pride goeth
before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall".
All those who think they are better than everyone else
are ready for the judgment of God along with the pride of owning things
for the purpose of gaining other people's admiration. There isn't
anything wrong with owning nice things as long as a person's attitude
is one of humility and honoring God with their lives!
2- A lying tongue.
People seem to think it is all right to tell
lies as long as they don't get caught but God said in the book of
Revelation that all liars are going to be cast into the lake of fire
along with the devil and the satanic trinity! Revelation 21:8- "...All liars, shall have their part
in the lake which burnesth with fire and brimstone: which is the second
3- Hands that shed innocent blood.
Another category of people who are going to
hell are murders as described in the book of Revelation chapter 21. All
abortion mills who have murdered millions of innocent babies are going
to have a very hot place in hell! Those who hate the Jews like Adolph
Hitler who murdered six million Jewish men, women and children are
going to have hell as their eternal home! If you are a murderer you
will have plenty of company in hell!
4- A heart that deviseth wicked imaginations.
The heart of man is desperately wicked and
deceitful above all things as described in God's word. Jeremiah 17:9- "The heart is deceitful above all
things, and desperately wicked: who can know it"? God knows the
heart and no one can escape the truth about our sinful nature! Unless a
man or woman, boy or girl comes to the realization that they are on a
collision course with hell and repents of their sin while believing
that Christ died for your sins and arose from the dead as well as
asking for Christ to come into your heart to live forever you can never
go to heaven!
5- Feet that be swift in running to mischief.
Romans 8:6- "For to be carnally minded is death..."!
you are always doing bad things you need to first of all check up to
see who your father is! Jesus said to the lost in John 8:44 that "ye are of your father the devil, and
the lust of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the
beginning, and abode not in truth, because there is no truth in him.
When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and
the father of it".
you claim to know the Lord as your personal saviour and are doing
wicked things, you either need to be saved or you need to consecrate
your life and put it all on the
altar of the Lord and place it under the blood of Christ. God said in
his word in 2 Corinthians 5:17- "Therefore
if any man be in Christ he
a new creature: old things are passed away, behold, all things are
new". If that hasn't happened for you, you need to check up to
is wrong; maybe you need to be saved! If your want to hasn't changed:
Your need to hasn't changed! What that means is this: If you don't want
to do right and the Holy Spirit doesn't convict you when you don't do
right; Your need to be saved is still present!
6- A false witness that speaketh lies.
Unfortunately there are people who claim to
know the Lord who are opposed to other christians and preachers. When
my family and I were serving as missionaries to Alaska my brother and
his wife made several false accusations against us to other church
members and even called our mission board and told them several lies
that caused us much heartache and considerable trouble getting it all
straightened out. I tell you that God will not allow people like this
get away with slandering his anointed. God said in his word in Psalms
105:15- "Touch not
my anointed, and do my prophets no harm". God destroyed Jezebel
her husband for killing God's prophets and he will do the same to
anyone who goes after his anointed!
7- He that soweth discord among brethren.
There are trouble makers in the body of
Christ who think they know more than the preacher like those who
opposed the Apostle Paul in the book of 2 Timothy chapter 4 where Paul
said, "Alexander the
coppersmith did me much evil, the Lord reward him according to his
works". Another place the Apostle Paul said, "I turned Hymenaeus and Alexander over
to Satan that they might
learn not to blaspheme".
God will not let people oppose god's preachers
who are doing the work of the Lord without bringing those people into
If you are one of those people mentioned above, you either need to be
saved or you need to ask the Lord to help you get your priorities
right. You already know which it is and you need to do business with
