God has a lot to say about wickedness, particularly in Proverbs. He hates wickedness and its evil, destructive ways. Wickedness is the work of the devil, meant to destroy everyone it touches.
Proverbs 9:10 (KJV) 10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.
Proverbs 21:12b (KJV) 12 … : but God overthroweth the wicked for their wickedness.
Proverbs 21:16 (KJV) 16 The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead.
As you can see, knowledge of the holy is understanding, and understanding is knowledge of God, His Word, and His things. Those who wander out of the way of understanding remain in the congregation of the dead! What a horrible place to be! No wonder the “liberal left” is so deceived and confused about what the truth is. They’re the walking dead!
Proverbs 14:34 (KJV)
34 Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.
Righteousness exalts a nation. Isn’t that what we want? Surely it’s better than wickedness driving a nation! This can also apply to your business, family, social group, and of course, the Church.
Brothers and sisters, we need to get our act together and start being the role-models God intends for us to be.
Romans 2:4b (KJV) 4 … knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?
The world needs to see godliness in us and His “Word in operation. They need to see the “real” Jesus and all the He is. It’s the Holy Spirit Who draws them to the Father but He does it through us.
John 14:12 (KJV) 12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
Let’s take our stand and be God’s instruments of righteousness!
Romans 6:13 (KJV) 13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
