Transgressions are heavy on people’s hearts, although the wicked like to mask it like it doesn’t exist. Iniquity is deceitful in the sight of God. People flattereth their eyes in worldly things that are full of lust. Pride comes along with arrogance and no desire to change their evil ways. There is no fear when it comes to how God feels about their wayward lives. And so many of these people have learned to hate their own Creator. Their thoughts are continuous to gratify themselves. They run their mouths with cursing like it is nothing and harmless. These people are wise in their own eyes. Any goodness has fled from them and they have much need to repent. And so the wicked die in their sins not caring to know God. David wrote, “the transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes. For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hateful. The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit: he hath left off to be wise, and to do good.” (Psalm 36:1-3)
The wicked are those who devise mischief. In their beds are sexually perverse things done in secret. Their feet are quick to do the things that they are tempted in, which they willfully sin. Their heads are puffed up in their pride, and this is the reason why only a few people ever repent and get right with God. They are in darkness and cannot come out of it on their own will. These are those who do not do good in the sight of God, but their works are as filthy rags. Because they do not abhor what is evil, wicked acts follow. For people to call out their sins and be reproved is when they get offended. David also wrote, “he deviseth mischief upon his bed; he setteth himself in a way that is not good; he abhorreth not evil.” (Psalm 36:4) “Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of the wicked remove me. There are the workers of iniquity fallen: they are cast down, and shall not be able to rise.” (Psalm 36:11,12) The truth is, every worker of iniquity will not rise to paradise when they die but be cast into hell. Amen.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that more people would come into agreement with me that we have all sinned against You. How we have much need to repent and get right with You. I wonder how people can continue to sin willfully against You and still desire to be saved. I also wonder how people deny Your truth and continue to dwell in sin instead. Do people not realize that hell is prepared for the wicked, whereas paradise is prepared for the righteous? I have explained what happens to people who are in paradise to many people and these same people all want to go there. They are anxious to go to a place where there is only peace, joy, love, goodness, no death, no sickness, no more tears, and where You are Jesus. The sad thing is, the same people do not want to do anything with their lives in order to go there. I am not talking about working our way to heaven, but having faith in You, Jesus. Salvation is simple and it involves You as our Lord and Savior. May more people surrender themselves to You. I love You, Lord. I trust in You. Amen.
