who is the wicked?
answer = religious people without the Spirit of Christ; those who hold the freewill
of man doctrine (salvation by works)
Psalm 119:155 "Salvation far from the wicked: for they
seek not thy statutes"
Matthew 16:1-4 "1 The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired
him that he would shew them a sign from heaven.2 He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, fair weather:
for the sky is red.3 And in the morning, foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O hypocrites, ye can discern
the face of the sky; but can ye not the signs of the times?4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and
there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed"
Lord Jesus Christ is the sign of the prophet Jonas.
Jonas 1:17 "Now the LORD had prepared a great fish to
swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days
and three nights"
Matthew 12:40 "For as Jonas was three
days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of
man be three days and three nights
in the heart of the earth"
God's elect/chosen people do not need a physical sign nor physical work to
trust in the Salvation of our soul; Christ's work is our sign and rest.
Matthew 23:25-28 "25 Woe unto you,
scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of
extortion and excess.26 blind Pharisee, cleanse first that within the cup and platter, that the outside of them be clean also.27
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward,
but are within full of dead bones, and of all uncleanness.28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within
ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity"
False teachers teach people these man's commandments: if you are a
child of God you must: give money, go in the physical water baptism, do physical communion, do not smoke, do not drink alcohol
or coke, do dress certain way, do not watch television, and many more. They clean the outside, but do not clean the inside,
which only the blood of the Lamb of God can cleanse. The blood of Christ's was shed for sinners. Most Christians today are
trusting in what they are doing and do not know what Christ has finished at the cross, the redemption of His people (chosen
by God) If anybody brings you a doctrine in which the salvation of your soul depends on what you do, that person is WICKED.
Psalm 9:16 "The LORD is known: the judgment he executeth: the wicked is snared
in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah"
Psalm 10:2-4 "2 The wicked in pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined.3 For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth the covetous, the LORD abhorreth.4 The wicked, through the pride of his countenance will not seek: God not in all his thoughts"
Psalm 11:5 "The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence
his soul hateth"
Iniquity = violence against God
Psalm 26:5 "I have
hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked"
"Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which speak
peace to their neighbours, but mischief in their hearts"
Psalm 32:10 "Many sorrows to the wicked:
but he that trusteth in the LORD, mercy shall compass him about"
Psalm 34:21 "Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate"
Psalm 36:1-3 "1 The
transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, no fear of God before his eyes.2 For he flattereth
himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hateful.3 The words of his mouth iniquity and deceit: he hath left
off to be wise, to do good"
Freewill of man doctrine teaches man to flatter himself:
man says about the salvation of the soul "I have made the decision" or "I accepted Christ" Let me ask
this: Does man make a decision to be born physically? answer: NO. So, it is the same spiritually; God made the decision
who would be born again in the Spirit from before the foundation of the world. why multitudes cannot see this? It is
all God's will and plan.
This is what false teachers do (freewillys): Proverbs 29:5 "A man
that flattereth his neighbour spreadeth a net for his feet"
Proverbs 12:12 "The wicked desireth
the net of evil: but the root of the righteous yieldeth"
Psalm 35:8 "Let destruction come upon him at unawares; and let his net that he
hath hid catch himself: into that very destruction let him fall"
Today's Christianity has
fallen in a net believing in physical commandments and material blessings.
Ecclesiastes 9:12 "For man
also knoweth not his time: as the fishes that are taken in an evil net,
and as the birds that are caught in the snare; so the sons of men snared in an evil time, when
it falleth suddenly upon them"
Psalm 36:11 "Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the
hand of the wicked remove me"
Psalm 37:7 "Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently
for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked
devices to pass"
Psalm 37:12 "The wicked plotteth against the just, and
gnasheth upon him with his teeth"
Psalm 50:16 "But unto the wicked God
saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or thou take my covenant in thy mouth?"
bring the Word of God; but it has been twisted. The covenant is Christ, who was sacrificed for the sins of God's elect, not
Psalm 59:5 "Thou therefore, O LORD God of hosts, the God of Israel, awake to visit all
the heathen: be not merciful to any wicked transgressors. Selah."
"Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the unrighteous
and cruel man"
Freewill of man doctrine teachers are unrighteous and cruel when they teach
people to make a decision or to accept Christ; for we know that the Lord Jesus Christ has done it all.
73:3 "For I was envious at the foolish, I saw the prosperity of the wicked"
teachers prosper in this world (materially)
Psalm 75:10 "All the horns
of the wicked also will I cut off; the horns of the righteous shall be exalted"
The horns of the righteous = 2 Samuel 22:3 "The God of my rock; in him will I trust: my shield, and the horn
of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence"
Psalm 82:4 "Deliver the poor and needy: rid out of the hand of the wicked"
Psalm 92:7 "When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity
do flourish; that they shall be destroyed for ever"
Psalm 97:10 "Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he
preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked"
Evil eye = Proverbs 28:22 "He that hasteth to be rich, an evil
eye, and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him"
"For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while
some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows"
4:19 "The way of the wicked as darkness: they know not at what they stumble"
Proverbs 10:3 "The LORD will not suffer the soul of the righteous to famish: but he casteth away the substance of the
Proverbs 10:6 "Blessings upon the head of the just: but violence
covereth the mouth of the wicked"
Proverbs 10:11 "The mouth of a righteous
a well of life: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked"
"The wicked worketh a deceitful work: but to him that soweth righteousness a sure reward"
Proverbs 12:5 "The thoughts of the righteous right: the counsels of the wicked
Proverbs 12:13 "The wicked is snared by the transgression of lips:
but the just shall come out of trouble"
Proverbs 13:9 "The light of the righteous rejoiceth: but the
lamp of the wicked shall be put out"
Proverbs 15:8 "The sacrifice of the
wicked an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright [is] his delight"
PSALM 5:1 Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation.2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God:
for unto thee will I pray.3 My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct unto thee, and will
look up.4 For thou [art] not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.5 The foolish shall
not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.6 Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the LORD will abhor
the bloody and deceitful man.7 But as for me, I will come thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: in thy fear will I worship
toward thy holy temple.8 Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face.9
For no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part very wickedness; their throat an open sepulchre; they flatter with their
tongue.10 Destroy thou them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions;
for they have rebelled against thee.11 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy,
because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.12 For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous;
with favour wilt thou compass him as a shield"
THE LORD JESUS CHRIST!
